TRUMP CALLS PITTSBURGH SYNAGOGUE ATTACK EVIL ANTI-SEMITISMPresident Donald Trump mourned the dead and forcefully condemned anti-Semitism Saturday after a mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that left 11 dead.

She just wanted to be free. And both are struggling every day to get by. Navy veteran Paul Bryan, 61, and domestic abuse survivor Debra Feindt, 47, come from completely separate walks of life. Bryan, a former alcoholic who has been sober for over 30 years, moved to Charlotte County a month ago and now resides at the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition. Feindt went from being a stay-at-home pastors wife, stomaching death threats, to a single mother of three teenagers within two years, now juggling three jobs to make rent each month. But both are among the 10.1 percent of Charlotte County residents who fall below the poverty line. Over 54,000 residents in Charlotte and Sarasota counties live below the poverty line, the U.S. Census Bureau reported for 2017. This amounts to 10.1 and 8.6 percent of the population for Charlotte and Sarasota counties, respectively. Though each county has improved since 2016, which reported 12.6 percent of Charlotte residents and 10.6 percent of Sarasota residents living below the poverty line, neither county has fully recovered from the 2008 recession. Not even close,Ž Bryan said. Its not that we dont know how to “ x the problem, its not being resolved. They dont care.Ž Bryan supports raising minimum wage, and thinks that extra money in wages would help build the economy. They dont want us to go anywhere, its a dreadful situation.Ž You have to work three different jobs just to make rent,Ž Feindt said. In 2007, the number of residents below the poverty level was 9 and 7.9 percent for Charlotte and Sarasota counties, respectively, or 13,409 and 29,143 residents. Even though more people are living in poverty than a decade ago, North Port resident Josie Cubicciotti, 97, thinks 10 times more help is available. Its much better now (than in 2007),Ž she said. More churches and organizations are helping people today.Ž The federal poverty threshold for 2017 was a yearly wage of $12,488 for one adult, or $6 an hour, according to the U.S. Census Bureau 2017 data. With the addition of one child, the threshold rises to $16,895, or $8.12 an hour. Floridas minimum wage is set at $8.25. And some think the $12,488 threshold is too low. Our living wages need to be balanced with our daily living expenses,Ž said Charlotte County Homeless Coalition Chief Executive Of“ cer Tina Figliuolo. A lot of people in the county are living paycheck to paycheck. They are in crisis all the time.Ž A living wage for a single adult in Charlotte and Sarasota counties is $22,814 and $24,714, respectively, according to Nearly 1 in 10 live in poverty. Some may work more than you. WANTED: LESS EXPENSIVE HOUSINGWe need housing, good housing,Ž said Debra Feindt, a single mom working three jobs. Three-fourths of rents in Charlotte and Sarasota counties were above $700 in 2017, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. In 2008, 55 percent of rents in Charlotte County and 65 percent in Sarasota County were above $700. Housing is one of the biggest problems in the community,Ž said Angie Matthiessen, the executive director of United Way of Charlotte County. Housing should be a third of ones monthly income, according to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). With a countywide median income of $44,865, the average rent including utilities should be no more than $1,122 per month, according to a housing report from Together Charlotte. Charlotte County lacks affordable housing stock and a significant portion of the population is paying more than 30 percent of their income on housing costs,Ž the report said. Twenty-eight percent of renters in Charlotte County pay more than 50 percent of their income on housing costs. The report states that 10,918 housing units need to be added to keep up with projected demand, with half of those being affordable for those 80 percent of the median income and below.POVERTY | 4 A lot of people in the county are living paycheck to paycheck. They are in crisis all the time.Ž „ Tina Figliuolo chief executive o cer of the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition By BETSY CALVERTSTAFF WRITERIf you are a company that wants to sell your product to Charlotte County government, it helps to be local. Thats because the county has a local preference regulation giving local companies an advantage in bidding. But that edge may disappear as county commissioners consider abandoning the local preference policy. Local companies have been lobbying commissioners even before they began their public debate in a recent workshop. If the county were to keep (the policy) in place, it would tell contracts, Hey, lets set up a shop here, lets lease a property and hire local,Ž A.J. Ribas, vice president of A2 Group Inc., told the Sun A2 is a construction management company that opened a Charlotte of“ ce “ ve years ago. Last year, A2 was awarded a contract of more than $4 million to build a “ ring range for the county Sheriffs Of“ ce. All of my employees are local, who live in Charlotte County,Ž Ribas said. We keep it close to the vest here.Ž Punta Gorda and Lee County have both dropped their local preference policy recently, Kim Corbett, Local biz not so special?Charlotte may not favor local bidders TISEO CONSTANCE TRUEX DEUTSCH DOHERTYCHARLOTTE | 7 AP PHOTOPittsburgh residents hug after an active shooter situation at Tree of Life Congregation on Saturday.

Polk Avenue, Arcadia By LIZ HARDAWAYSTAFF WRITERSince 1907, Kays-Ponger & Uselton Funeral Homes and Cremation Services have been owned by longtime Charlotte County residents. But this summer, the company became a part of North Americas largest provider of deathcare products and servicesŽ through Service Corporation International (SCI). SCI owns 2,000 funeral homes and cemeteries, including 195 in Florida. Kays-Ponger & Uselton Funeral Homes and Cremation Services, Lemon Bay Cremation Services and Funeral Home, Sound Choice Cremation & Burial and Gulf Pines Memorial Park were all previously owned by Remembrance Services of Florida LLC. The LLC is listed as inactive due to a corporate merger that took place on June 12, according to state records. And due to that corporate merger, SCI acquired one cemetery, one cinerator facility, six funeral establishments and one pre-need license to sell contracts and funeral arrangements prior to the funeral. Calls and visits for Kays-Ponger & Uselton for comment were unsuccessful last week and on Saturday. The acquisition was approved by the Board of Funeral, Cemetery and Consumer Services on June 7, according to their meeting minutes. The change of ownership is due to a change of control through a stock purchase agreement, said assistant director for the division of funeral, cemetery and consumer services, Ellen Simon, in the minutes. Kays-Ponger & Uselton isnt the only family-owned funeral business SCI has recently acquired. This year alone, the Houston-based company has acquired 23 funeral homes, two direct cremation businesses and six cemeteries, according to their third quarterly newsletter for 2018. Acquisitions this year are located in Pennsylvania, Hawaii, Florida, Washington, Ohio, Indiana, Texas and Virginia. We are proud that each of these exceptional business owners trusted our company with their family legacy. Were also humbled by this responsibility and have worked diligently to ensure a smooth transition for each location and their staff and client families,Ž the company stated in the newsletter. A former owner, Ron Kays, died Sept. 30, after the acquisition. His son, Mark Kays, is still listed as general manager of KaysPonger & Uselton on their website. Our company remains active partnering with what we feel are the best quality businesses in our profession,Ž the SCI newsletter said. Since 2010, we have invested over $600M... Partnering with individual business owners and providing them a bene“cial succession plan.Ž Last year, SCI had a revenue of $3.095 billion and $12.864 billion in total assets, according to its 2017 annual report.Email: lhardaway@sun-herald.comLocal family funeral homes go corporate FROM REMEMBRANCE SERVICES OF FLORIDA LLC TO SCI€ Gulf Pines Memorial Park (Englewood) € Southern Crematory (Punta Gorda) € Kays-Ponger & Uselton Funeral Homes and Cremation Services (Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda and Venice) € Lemon Bay Funeral Home and Cremation Services (Englewood) € Sound Choice Cremation & Burial (Bradenton and Sarasota) Port Charlotte1441 Tamiami Trail #101 € 941-629-2639 Visit us online at: PtChltt Available at participating locations only.

Page 4 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018FROM PAGE ONE MITs living wage data. Both are almost double the federal poverty threshold for one adult. As far as Charlotte residents who dont earn a living wage, that was about 32,411 residents, or 18.2 percent of the population in 2017. For Sarasota residents, 68,001, or 16.4 percent, dont earn a living wage. This doesnt take into account how many children these residents may have or other dependents, but only if they provided for themselves. Im not able to get ahead right now, no matter how hard I try,Ž Feindt said. For the labor force over the age of 16 that is employed, about 6 percent are living below poverty level in Charlotte County. Its 4 percent in Sarasota County, according to the latest Census “gures.LIVING WITH A NONLIVABLE WAGE Debras storyDebra Feindt, 47, used to live a seemingly pristine, suburban life. Her husband was a pastor, a man of God, and they had two daughters and a son. They had a good income, a nice house; Feindt was a stay-at-home mom. But behind closed doors, life was not perfect. I would have to hide my keys, he would disable my truck so I couldnt go to work,Ž Feindt said. Her ex-husband eventually convinced her to quit her job as a ”ight attendant for Delta. Everything was always hidden: License, purse, wallet, everything. And that went on for years.Ž A couple of years ago, it was the beginning of the end, Feindt said. She was in Gainsville at her dying mothers bedside. Her ex-husband, she said, called demanding she take him to the hospital. His blood pressure was rising; hed drank too much. We begged for years, years, for him to get sober,Ž she said. She refused, staying by her mother for her last moments. Youre going to have hell to pay when you get back,Ž he told her. A month and a half later he broke her sternum. Ill bury you so deep no ones going to “nd you,Ž he threatened. Ive got to get out, its time,Ž she said. It was so hard to get out, but we did it.Ž A year and 10 months later, Feindt rents a house in Punta Gorda for $1,200 a month. She shares it with her three children and one child she took in from an unstable home life. She works three jobs, one at Publix, one at a gift boutique and does real estate on the side. Feindt made $16,000 last year. My husband at the time made good money being a pastor,Ž she said. Now we have nothing.Ž Feindt had not been able to work for the past two weeks. She had been sick for three months until “nally she went to the hospital. I thought I had a broken rib,Ž she said. It ended up being a kidney stone. A procedure that was supposed to take two days ended up keeping her in the hospital two weeks with an infection that was lying dormant, a fever of 105 degrees and being moved to ICU. But bills dont pause for illness. Thanks to the Season of Sharing campaign and United Way, Feindts rent was paid off for October. Feindt has also received help from Sacred Heart Catholic Churchs Society of St. Vincent de Paul with water bills, power bills and rent on the months I couldnt make it,Ž she said. I would go sit there, and there was a lot of poverty sitting with me,Ž she said. Never in a million years did I think Id be sitting in food kitchens and having the power turned off and the water turned off. We didnt know how dif“cult it would be.ŽPauls storyI cant afford to live in America and I fought for this country,Ž said Paul Bryan, 61, who is currently staying at the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition. Bryan is a Navy veteran, with honorable discharge from four years of service in the late 1970s, he said. After serving, Bryan did construction on and off for 10 years, following where the work was, but trying to stay near the ocean. Bryan has been homeless for 15 years, most nights sleeping in his blue Ford Crown Victoria. (Its) uncomfortable: Nowhere to go to the bathroom, no shower, you have to hide from the police,Ž Bryan said. Im under the radar when Im homeless; if theres a place to hide or anything else, Im on it because I dont need the harassment of the law. They just dont understand.Ž Once Bryans parents passed, his housing situation never quite recovered. Housing doesnt take priority when youre young,Ž Bryan said. He started living with friends, couch-sur“ng for 20 years, he said. Bryan moved from San Diego a month ago because hed always wanted to retire here. The “rst thing he did was go to the VA Hospital in Fort Myers to “nd somewhere to live. Bryan receives 10 percent of veterans disability each month. A lot of these people should be getting 50 percent, at least,Ž he said. For mental stress and the stuff that people go through, the PTSD. So they hide in their drugs and go “nd a bush to sleep in.Ž Bryan is one of the many veterans who suffered from substance abuse, saying hell do anything when Im partying,Ž ranging from crack cocaine to methamphetamine. I have an addictive personality for drugs, its an escape from reality.Ž You have all these (veterans) who have nowhere to go,Ž he said. These guys kind of get shuf”ed to the side.Ž Bryan currently resides at the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition, which has 32 beds for men and 14 for women. Twenty beds are reserved for veterans, Figliuolo said. The shelter also has four family units, each consisting of beds and a bathroom. The homeless coalition has served more than 650 chronically homeless individuals since July 2016, Figliuolo said. Government really doesnt see the middle class America. Its a shame,Ž he said.Josies storyLike many seniors, Josie Cubicciotti fell. After breaking her femur, Cubicciotti was confined to a hospital bed from April to August. Upon returning home, she had racked up a $160,000 medical bill. Dear God, how am I going to pay all these bills?Ž she said. Then, when they actually received the bill, it was cut down to a quarter of the costs. Through my relationships in the networking of nonprofits I was able to connect her with an advocacy organization that assists people having financial difficulties as a result of medical bills,Ž said Steve Leclerc, the executive director for HOPE for North Port. Cubicciotti was referred to the Sun through Leclerc. She uses services such as Free Fellowship lunch provided by HOPE for North Port and New Hope Community Church after her accident, and lives on a “xed income. We still had to pay (the medical bills),Ž her son Ken Cubicciotti said, and are still paying now.Ž Cubicciotti receives social security and a small pension,Ž she said, from working 20 years as a crossing guard. She makes enough to where she can pay the bills,Ž said her son, Ken. But if Cubicciotti only received social security, that would be a different story. The average monthly Social Security check for retired workers in North Port is $1,410.13, according to the Social Security Office of Retirement and Disability Policy. Generating $16,921.51 a year, residents only receiving Social Security would not be considered impoverished at 135 percent of the poverty level.

Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS By BETSY CALVERTSTAFF WRITERRed tide algae readings dropped to minimal, but then edged back up to medium this past week along Charlotte Countys Gulf coast. Low readings of the algae Karenia brevis prompted Sarasota County to drop its emergency status earlier this month, but not Charlotte County. We have seen improved conditions on our beaches since the week of Oct. 9, though we did have some minor fish kill today on Siesta, Turtle and Lido beaches,Ž said Sarasota County spokesperson Drew Winchester Friday. In Charlotte County, commissioners have been re-voting the emergency status without discussion at their bi-weekly meetings. The first declaration was on Aug. 14, the day after the state issued its declaration. Its offshore and it could come back,Ž Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch told the Sun when asked why the board has continued the state of emergency. Commissioner Joe Tiseo said the board has continued the state of emergency on the advice of the countys legal department. Charlotte County spokesperson Brian Gleason said the county is keeping its emergency status going as a precaution and to enable grant applications. Charlotte County is maintaining the local state of emergency for red tide because algal readings are unpredictable and we want to err on the side of caution before lifting the declaration,Ž he said. Of the grants, Gleason said, Charlotte County has been approved for a (Florida) Department of Environmental Protection grant to perform in-water clean-ups if a fish kill occurs... Maintaining the emergency declaration allows the county to tap those clean-up funds.Ž Interim Director of the Florida Department of Health in Charlotte County Joe Pepe noted that emergency status allows the county to act more quickly in contracting for services related to the emergency. Extremely high levels of red tide have plagued Southwest Florida since last fall. More recently, it has moved to the states Panhandle, and for the first time in decades, to the east coast. The red tide toxin causes respiratory distress in humans. It kills fish as well as marine mammals.Email: Ecalvert@sun-herald.comMore red tide emergencyCharlotte extends declaration, but not Sarasota FROM FWCRed Tide, or Karenia Brevis, has spread around the state on all coasts, while it has died down in Charlotte County. Scientists test samples along the Gulf and the Atlantic every day, posting the updated accumulated data once a week on the website for Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission.

The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018 E/N/C Page 7 the countys senior manager of purchasing, told commissioners at their workshop. Sarasota and DeSoto counties have local preference policies in place. Charlotte County includes DeSoto or Sarasota counties in its de“nition of local. The way it works is that when a local company does not offer the lowest bid, they get a second crack at it, if theirs is within 5 percent. The local company can come back with a new bid lower than their competitor, Corbett said. With proposals, local businesses get extra points for how long they have been in the region, for the number of staff living in the local area, and for use of local sub-consultants. Several commissioners sounded critical of any local preference. I cant imagine being a bidder that would want to go through this process,Ž Commissioner Joe Tiseo said of out-of-town companies. I think it reduces the potential for the bidder pool to expand, therefore driving up costs.Ž Commissioner Bill Truex added: The time consumed going through this, if they only have to be under by a penny, it doesnt seem to service very well.Ž Unless we can clearly show that jobs are being kept here,Ž Commissioner Christopher Constance said, I think we need to get the best deal for the taxpayer.Ž Commissioner Ken Doherty defended the policy, but agreed that it may not work well in all circumstances. He recommended keeping the policy for consulting services and for some purchasing, but perhaps not for construction bids. Weve got people living here in this county right now „ bought homes, their lives are here „ because of this policy,Ž he said. Corbett identi“ed eight instances that the local preference policy came into play in the last “scal year. Seven times, the local business successfully rebid, and one time, Don Gasgarths Charlotte County Ford chose not to rebid. Of the seven, “ve were for amounts below $100,000, but one was for $1.1 million and the “ring range was more than $4 million. The big issue is government grants, Corbett said, which bar local preference. We have been put in a couple of situations in the last year or so where we didnt realize, we put local preference in there, we missed some other grant requirements, and we are in a position of possibly losing grant funding, which will hurt the community,Ž she said. That sounds like a quality control issue for the county, Ribas said, and should not be used to delete local preference. Representing the local building industry, Suzanne Graham told the Sun that the Charlotte DeSoto Building Industry Association supports the local preference policy. Some of them have moved their companies into Charlotte County for that purpose,Ž she said. At the workshop, Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch asked if county staff had any data showing the economic bene“t to the county. Economic Development Of“ce Director Lucienne Pears said she does not have data, but will work on an analysis for the commission to make a future decision.Email: ecalvert@sun-herald.comCHARLOTTEFROM PAGE 1 FROM PAGE ONEThe shooting was probably the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the history of the United States,Ž according to the Anti-Defamation League, which has monitored anti-Semitism in the U.S. for more than a century. Law enforcement of“cials identi“ed the gunman as Robert Bowers, 46, who had apparently posted virulently anti-Semitic comments on social media before the shooting. Because the shootings are being treated as a federal hate crime, the FBI took charge of the investigation with local of“cials, authorities said. The gunman yelled, all Jews must dieŽ as he walked into the synagogue, police told local television reporters. Police said Bowers was armed with an AK-47 ri”e and two pistols, and that he “red at the “rst of“cers who arrived on the scene. Its a very horri“c crime scene,Ž Hissrich said at the scene of the shooting at the Tree of Life Congregation in the citys Squirrel Hill neighborhood. ŽIts one of the worst that Ive seen, and Ive been on some plane crashes. Its very bad.Ž A social media user using Robert Bowers name had called Jews the children of satanŽ and made posts before the attack alluding to neo-Nazi ideology and threatening HIAS, a refugee agency founded to assist Jews. Law enforcement of“cials familiar with the case con“rmed that they believe the posts were made by the shooting suspect. HIAS likes to bring invaders in that kill our people,Ž said a post made Saturday on Gab, a small social-media service that is popular with white nationalists and other far-right users. I cant sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, Im going in.Ž The reference to opticsŽ is a signi“cant one among the small world of white nationalists and signals that the suspect had a familiarity with the inner political dynamics of the American white nationalist movement. It alludes to debate among far-right “gures over whether to avoid violence or aggression, which often draws negative attention to the movement from the general public. HIAS, founded in 1881 as the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society to assist Jews ”eeing persecution in Russia, since 2000 has helped refugees of all faiths from around the world, helping them resettle in the U.S. President Donald Trump called for armed guards at synagogues and implied that lax security by the synagogue was at least partially to blame for the high death toll. If they had protection inside, the results would have been far better,Ž he said. If there was an armed guard inside the temple, they would have been able to stop him, maybe there would have been nobody killed, except for him, frankly.Ž Later, Trump called the attack an anti-Semitic actŽ that shocked and stunnedŽ the nation and the world. You wouldnt think this would be possible, but we just dont seem to be able to learn from the past,Ž Trump said, reading from a teleprompter while addressing the Future Farmers of America in Indianapolis. Today with one uni“ed voice we condemn the historic evil of anti-Semitism and every other form of evil. And unfortunately evil comes in many forms.Ž Despite Trumps reference to anti-Semitism as something relegated to the past, the ADL reported earlier this year that anti-Semitic incidents in the U.S. rose 57 percent in 2017 „ the largest single-year increase on record and the second-highest number reported since ADL started tracking such data in 1979.Ž Squirrel Hill, a tree-lined residential neighborhood, about 10 minutes east of downtown, has been the hub of Pittsburghs Jewish community since the 1930s. About a quarter of the metropolitan regions Jewish population, estimated at roughly 50,000, lives in the neighborhood, according to a study released earlier this year by Pittsburghs Jewish Federation. Jeff Finkelstein of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh told WPXI-TV that the organizations security of“cer had alerted area synagogues and that they were on modi“ed lockdown. Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf called the shooting an absolute tragedy.Ž We must all pray and hope for no more loss of life,Ž Wolf said. But we have been saying this one is too many for far too long.

According to the organization, there are currently 436 homeless students in Charlotte County as of the 18-19 school year. The number is equal to that reported during the 17-18 school year, and down slightly from the 458 reported in 16-17. Mentors work with students, their families and school staff to implement strategies that address school success and completion. According to Nancy Cwynar, co-founder of The Homeless Students GAP Fund, a good mentor would be a good problem solver, and bring a sense of calm and order to the kids. The mentor comes in to help them take away barriers, give them guidance, accountability. They meet with them once a week, ask How are you doing on attendance?, How are your grades?Ž Cwynar said. The objective of the program is for the mentor to help keep the student successful and engaged at school. Mentors are asked to dedicate at least one hour a week, with a minimum commitment of two years. Some responsibilities expected of the mentor include: weekly checkins with their mentee to discuss grades, attendance, and behavior. Mentors will serve as a positive role model to the students they serve, and facilitate communication and problem-solving strategies between the students and home, and/or students and the school. The maximum number of mentees a mentor can serve at one time is two, but typically a mentor starts with one student. What we have found, is obviously you get attached, because you form this relationship,Ž Cwynar said. I have one mentor whose mentee has graduated and is going off to college, and she still keeps in touch with him,Ž Cwynar said. The GAP Fund provides training free of charge to those interested in becoming mentors. The “rst step to becoming a mentor would be to complete the 12-hour Check and Connect training, pass a background check, then “nally attend orientation. For those interested in assisting, but may not have the time required to mentor, the other two initiatives the GAP Fund focuses on is technology and transportation. Cwynar said the GAP Fund buys Chromebooks to give to the students. Sometimes they miss class, or have to “nish online classes over the summer „ $100 would buy a Chromebook,Ž she said. For transportation, Cwynar said sometimes the students want to stay after school to participate in extracurricular activities, or get a parttime job. The GAP Fund will take them and let them pick out a bike, helmet, and a lock. A $125 donation would furnish a student with this mode of transportation.

My Realtor told me my proceeds will be subject to a 15 percent FIRPTA withholding since the buyers will not use this as their primary residence. Is this correct? Answer: There is a lot of confusion about FIRPTA. The information you received is incorrect. Its a common misconception, so lets clear it up now. The FIRPTA laws affect foreign nationals who sell real estate in the U.S. The IRS requires that 15 percent of the sellers proceeds be withheld until the sellers submit the proper IRS forms to the IRS along with the appropriate taxes due on the proceeds, if any. FIRPTA provides exemptions that exclude the seller from the 15 percent withholding. The exemption I have seen most commonly used applies to a situation where the following 2 conditions are met. First, the sales price is not more than $300,000. Second, the buyer or a member of the buyers family must have definite plans to reside at the property for at least 50 percent of the number of days the property is used by any person during each of the first two 12-month periods following the date of transfer.Ž Paraphrasing that, lets say that during the first 12-month period of ownership, the home will be occupied for a total of 40 days. During the second 12-month period, the home will be occupied for a total of 70 days. To comply with the second condition, the buyer or a family member of the buyer must reside in the home at least 20 of the 40 days during the first 12-month period, and at least 35 of the 70 days during the second 12-month period. It is a very common that people misinterpret this 2nd condition to mean the purchased home must be the buyers primary residence. A primary residence generally refers to the home the buyer lives in more than half the year, aka the homesteaded home. Because FIRPTA laws are more complex than this, you should consult a licensed CPA or accountant regarding how FIRPTA applies to your situation.QWe will be listing our home after the holidays. The living room and adjacent rooms are carpeted throughout with high quality, carpeting. The carpet is in excellent shape, except for a 2-by-2 foot section that was ripped by the leg of a very heavy sofa we dragged across it. That same sofa sits on top of the tear, so it wont be visible to buyers, but we understand we will need to fix it. The problem is that this carpet pattern and color are no longer manufactured. That means we would have to replace the entire carpet to eliminate the tear? Is there a simpler solution? Answer: Yes, heres a solution that should work for you. Typically, carpeting extends into the closets. A professional carpet layer can cut a section of the closet carpet and use it to seamlessly patch the torn or stained section. The installer can then use a remnant that is a near match to re-cover the closet floor. By the way, I once sold a home where the carpet had a few stains that even a professional carpet cleaner could not remove. I found a product called Spot ShotŽ that removed those stains.

Page 2 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018 OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESBy JACK GUTTENTAGTHE MORTGAGE PROFESSORIn 2015 the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) replaced two incompatible disclosures from two federal agencies with a new set of integrated disclosures. One of them, called the Loan Estimate (LE), was viewed by CFPB as a shopping tool. It advises borrowers to request multiple Loan Estimates from different lenders so you can compare and choose the loan thats right for you.Ž CFPB doesnt advise prospective borrowers on exactly how to use the LE to shop, or warn them of the pitfalls. I am going to do that here, comparing that method of shopping to the use of the Quick Mortgage Shopper (QMS) on my website. Using the LE to shop multiple lenders requires the shopper to submit an application to each lender. This imposes a cost on each lender, and each will go all out to convert the application into a loan. Choosing one of them will not stop the others from calling. Using my QMS, in contrast, will not generate any calls because participating lenders have provided their pricing information to QMS, which provides it to the shopper, who remains anonymous. € Timing: Mortgage lenders reset their prices every morning, and occasionally during the day as well. To assure comparability, therefore, shoppers should apply to all the lenders on their list on the same day, and as close to the same time as possible. Those using LE who stretch out the process endanger the validity of their results. In contrast, the prices on QMS are always up to date because the lenders update their prices there when they reset them on their own sites. € Document deluge: Shoppers who apply to multiple lenders will receive not only the LE but the entire package of loan documents, usually well over 100 pages of stuff. They need to extract the LE and set the rest of the package aside. QMS users receive no paper except what they elect to print. € Impact on credit score: Each lender contacted by a shopper using the LE will pull the shoppers credit. Multiple inquiries from different categories of lender (such as “nance companies, commercial banks and credit unions) will reduce their credit score, even if they occur within a short period. Shoppers with low scores to begin with must avoid getting dinged in that way. The safest way to avoid it is to shop mortgage banks and mortgage brokers only. Multiple inquiries to them within any 30-day period count as only one inquiry. With QMS the shopper enters the credit score, which she can obtain with one inquiry. € Price variables used to shop: The LE has many but not the one that matters. In addition to the interest rate, lender fees and APR, it shows the total amount of interest the borrower will pay over the life of the loan as a percentage of the loan amount, and total payments over the “rst “ve years. CFPB is silent on how to use this mlange of measures to choose one lender over another. QMS identi“es the one variable that best captures the value of a lenders offer. This is the interest rate at zero lender fees, which I call the shopping rate.Ž While the borrower might want to lower the interest rate by paying points, or raise the rate in order to obtain a cash rebate, in both cases the probability is high that the lender with the lowest shopping rate will offer the best terms. € Implementation: Where shopping with the LE requires the shopper to apply for a mortgage with each lender the shopper contacts, the QMS allows the shopper to solicit price bids without applying. The shopper prints out the shopping rate along with all the features of the transaction that affect the rate, and says to the lender, Give me your bid on a loan with these features, and if it is the best, Ill be back to apply.Ž Jack Guttentag is professor emeritus of “nance at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Comments and questions can be left at best tool for mortgage shopping By GARY M. SINGERSUN SENTINELQ: I have been renting my apartment for six years using annual leases. This year at renewal time, I asked to go on a month-to-month lease due to some maintenance concerns. The landlord agreed, and we signed a month-to-month agreement that calls for 30-day notice to terminate the lease. I just received notice that the landlord wants me out in 30 days. I pay my rent at the beginning of each month, but the letter wants me out in the middle of next month. Can he do this? Also, I always pay on time, and the landlord has no reason to kick me out other than me not wanting to sign an annual lease. Is this OK? „ Darlene A: Leases are contracts, and both landlords and tenants must follow their terms. Because you agreed to a month-tomonth lease, neither you nor your landlord have any obligation to extend the lease each additional month, as long as proper notice is given. Your landlord could elect not to continue renting the property to you at the end of each lease period the same as you could if you decided to move. When entering into any contract, such as a lease, it is important to remember that each party has rights and responsibilities that ”ow both ways. You signed a month-to-month lease to give yourself options to move to a more suitable home, but these same terms gave your landlord the opportunity to “nd a different tenant. However, since your monthly periods begin on the “rst and run with the calendar, your landlord cannot ask you to leave in the middle of the next monthly period. The law typically allows for 15-day notice to terminate a monthly lease, but you and your landlord agreed to a 30-day notice instead.

While sophisticated investors can make decent returns by investing in tax liens, novices can easily get burned. Heres how it works: When a property owner fails to pay his or her taxes, the municipality in which the property is located can sell its tax lien „ the right to foreclose on a property when the owner has failed to pay taxes. Investors buy the liens in an auction, paying the amount of taxes owed in return for the right to collect back that money plus an interest payment from the property owner. Interest rates vary, depending on the jurisdiction or the state. For example, the maximum statutory interest rate is 16 percent in Arizona and 18 percent in Florida, while in Alabama the rate is “xed at 12 percent, according to the National Tax Lien Association, or NTLA, a nonpro“t that represents governments, institutional tax lien investors and servicers. The winner of a tax lien certi“cate is typically the investor willing to accept the lowest interest rate. Most tax liens purchased at auction are sold at rates between 3 percent and 7 percent nationally, says NTLAs Executive Director Brad Westover. The property owner has a redemption period „ generally one to three years „ to pay the taxes plus interest. If the property owner fails to pony up the property taxes by the end of the redemption period, the lienholder can initiate foreclosure proceedings to take ownership of the property. But that rarely happens: The taxes are generally paid before the redemption date. The interest rates make tax liens an attractive investment. Liens also are “rst in line for repayment, even before “rst mortgages. Ive had a few clients and friends who have invested in tax liens on a big-time basis almost as a business and have done well,Ž says Martin Cass, regional director private client services at BDO USA, an accounting “rm in West Palm Beach, Florida. But its complicated. You have to understand the details.ŽAuction methodsThe auctions can be held on the internet or in person and work in several different ways, depending on the municipality. One is known as bidding down the interest rate. The municipality establishes a maximum rate, and the bidder asking for the lowest interest rate beneath that maximum wins the auction. Another variation involves bidding a premium on the lien. The bidder who offers to pay the highest premium above the lien amount wins the auction. The premium can earn interest and may be paid back to the lienholder at redemption, but not always. Individual investors who are considering investments in tax liens should keep one point in mind above all: Do your homework. You have to know the property,Ž says Richard Zimmerman, a partner at Berdon LLP accounting “rm in New York City. You should really understand what youre buying. Be aware of what the property is, the neighborhood and values, so you dont buy a lien that you wont be able to collect.Ž You want to avoid properties with environmental damage, such as one where a gas station dumped hazardous material. You also have to be careful about when you do your research, says Joanne Musa, a tax lien investment consultant and founder of People get a list of properties and do their due diligence weeks before a sale,Ž she says. Half the properties on the list may be gone because the taxes get paid. Youre wasting your time. The closer to the date you do your due diligence, the better. You need to get an updated list.Ž Besides checking out the property and all liens against it, the prospective bidder also should check the prices for sales of similar properties and get the results of recent tax sales. You want to know what the interest is bid down to, or what the price of the lien is bid up to in recent tax sales to see if its pro“table or not,Ž says Musa.Things to learnIf you win a lien at auction, you must learn your responsibilities. For example, in Illinois, within four months of purchasing a lien, youre required to notify the property owners that you possess the lien and can foreclose if they dont repay, Musa says. Then another letter must be sent before the end of the redemption period. Tax liens also have an expiration date. Sometimes its six months after the redemption period,Ž she says. Dont think you can just buy and forget about it.Ž Any rights held by the lienholder to foreclose on the property or to collect his or her investment from the property owner expire when the lien has expired. After youve bought a lien, you may want to pay taxes on the property in the years that follow, so no one else can purchase a lien and thus have a claim on the property. Richard Rampell, chief executive of Rampell & Rampell accounting “rm in Palm Beach, Fla., was part of a small group that invested in local tax liens in the late 1990s and early 2000s. At “rst, the partners did well. But then big institutional investors, including banks, hedge funds and pension funds, got involved in auctions around the country, tempted by the high yields. The bigger investors helped bid down interest rates, so Rampells group wasnt making signi“cant money anymore on liens. At the end, we werent doing much better than a CD,Ž he says. For the amount of work, it wasnt worth it.Ž Given the entrance of big investors into the tax lien market, its more dif“cult for individuals to acquire attractive liens. You also may encounter dif“culty gaining title to a property in the event of foreclosure. For example, it may have other liens, Rampell says. This is something the average investor shouldnt look at,Ž he says. Because tax lien investing involves so much due diligence, it might be worthwhile to consider investing passively through an institutional investor who is a member of the National Tax Lien Association. Westover says 80 percent of tax lien certi“cates are sold to members of the NTLA. He says he can match up interested investors who become NTLA members with institutional investors who focus on this area of the market. NTLA membership for investors with less than $1 million to invest costs $500 a year. The membership fee for institutional investors ranges from $2,000 to $10,000, depending on the size of their investment portfolio. These institutional investors can generate returns ranging from 4 percent to 9 percent a year, he says.What to know when investing in tax liens EARLY VOTING LOCATIONS NOW OPEN!

Page 4 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMES By DEBORAH KEARNSBANKRATE.COMClearing the hurdles to qualify for a mortgage used to be much harder. House hunters with too much debt had their home-buying hopes dashed after being denied a mortgage. Thats changing as mortgage lenders ease lending guidelines to expand mortgage credit to more people. Borrowers with a high debt-to-income ratio now have more leeway than since the subprime mortgage meltdown of a decade ago. Your debt-toincome ratio, or DTI, is the percentage of monthly income you pay toward your monthly debts, including a new mortgage payment. Its a key factor „ along with your credit „ that lenders use to determine whether you can repay a loan. The more debt you have, the higher your DTI ratio „ and thats a red ”ag for lenders evaluating your potential for risk. Some consumer advocates worry that borrowers who are already struggling to stay a”oat might get in over their heads with todays laxer lending requirements. On the ”ip side, expanding access to mortgage credit could help creditworthy borrowers in higher-priced housing markets join the homeownership ranks theyve increasingly been shut out from.How getting a mortgage has gotten easierFannie Mae and Freddie Mac, two government-sponsored enterprises that back most U.S. mortgages, have eased their lending rules in recent years. Fannie Mae increased its maximum DTI ratio to 50 percent, up from 45 percent, in July 2017. Both agencies allow borrowers to “nance up to 97 percent of a homes purchase price, which is considered a high loan-to-value ratio. Conventional lenders charge higher interest rates on high DTI loans to mitigate their risk. They also require a higher FICO score and more cash reserves. Raising DTI limits is just one way lenders have made it easier to get a mortgage. LTV ratio increases help borrowers who dont have a large down payment. However, youll pay private mortgage insurance when you put less than 20 percent down „ and you might not be able to borrow as much as you need to buy a home. Some conventional lenders have rolled out their own low down-payment programs without private mortgage insurance in exchange for a higher interest rate. Governmentinsured loans require little to no down payment, and generally have more relaxed credit score requirements than conventional loans.Mortgage credit standards still tighter than boom timesBorrowers who dont “t into a pristine credit box now have more options, Joel Kan, associate vice president of industry surveys and forecasting with the Mortgage Bankers Association. Theres more balance to the lending equation nowadays after the regulatory pendulum swung too far in the opposite direction „ a move that shut out otherwise capable borrowers, Kan says. Although standards have loosened considerably in recent years, todays lending practices are still more stringent than they were before the housing crisis. The days of doling out loans without verifying income or employment are long gone. Were still about one-quarter of where we were compared to the pre-housing boom,Ž says Kan of mortgage credit accessibility. Standards are looser now than they were from 2010 to 2012 when credit access was the tightest, but its not subprime.Ž The share of new, conventional conforming homeloans with a DTI ratio above 45 percent spiked after Fannie Mae raised its DTI limit, according to research from CoreLogic. From early 2012 up until last summer, the share of these high DTI loans held steady between 5 percent to 7 percent. In the “rst quarter of 2018, that share nearly tripled, jumping to 20 percent, CoreLogic found. The average DTI ratio for these home loans rose by two points to nearly 37 percent from Q1 2017 to Q1 2018. Even as high DTI loans gain popularity, lenders havent budged on credit score standards. Borrowers average credit score for conventional, conforming purchase loans remained unchanged at 755 in the “rst quarter of 2018 compared to the same period a year ago, CoreLogic found. Thats signi“cantly higher than homebuyers average credit score of 705 in 2001 „ before the downturn.Expansion of mortgage credit has its drawbacksHigh DTI and LTV loans arent without risks. A high LTV ratio increases borrowing costs, and youll likely have to pay mortgage insurance to offset the lenders risk. For starters, lenders calculate your DTI ratio using your gross monthly income (before taxes and payroll deductions) and debts that appear on your credit report. Theyre not including monthly expenses like groceries, gas, auto or health insurance, day care/tuition, utility bills and other recurring bills that can eat up a good chunk of your monthly budget, says Rebecca Steele, CEO and president of the National Foundation for Credit Counseling. It puts some borrowers in a more precarious position,Ž Steele says of high DTI loans. Today, people have signi“cantly less savings in reserve. To have that you need a stable income, and some consumers struggle with that. Most people have little disposable income.Ž A job loss or other major “nancial hardship could land you in a tighter spot than if you had paid down your debt and shored up your emergency savings fund before buying a home. Youll also pay more interest with a high DTI loan, Steele says. Another key issue that some “rst-time buyers overlook are the hidden costs of homeownership, says Jeff Levine, a certi“ed “nancial planner with BluePrint Wealth Alliance in Garden City, New York. When youre stretching your income to cover monthly debt payments, you wont have as much cash on hand for maintenance expenses, homeowners association dues, and major repairs that inevitably pop up, he says. Borrowers should factor those expenses into the mix and avoid overextending themselves, Levine says.Getting a mortgage is now easier, but it could backfire NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARINGThe DeSoto County Planning Commission (PC) and/or Board of County Commissioners (BoCC) of DeSoto County, Florida will consider the adoption of ordinances and resolutions regarding the below-described development order applications.

BIRTHDAYSMany people perceive theyre becoming increasingly forgetful as they age. They notice things like forgetting the names of people they just met, misplacing their car keys or glasses or needing to write to-do lists more often. They worry these issues related to memory may be the early symptoms of dementia or Alzheimers disease. Some memory problems and a modest decline in other cognitive functions are a common part of aging. However, there are differences between normal memory changes and memory loss related to dementia and Alzheimers disease. Some memory problems stem from treatable conditions, according to the Mayo Clinic. In November, Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Renaissance Academy is offering two classes that explore normal age-related memory loss, dementia, and Alzheimers disease: Cindi Ryersons Memory Think TankŽ from 10-11:30 a.m. Nov. 7 and Annette Franks Understanding Alzheimers Disease: Research, Prevention, Reversing ProgressŽ 10 a.m.-noon Nov. 8. Both are at the Renaissance Academy, 117 Herald Court, Suite 211, in Punta Gorda. If youre concerned about getting Alzheimers, this class could be good for you,Ž Ryerson said about her Nov. 7 Memory Think TankŽ class. Sometimes people start forgetting because of normal aging and begin thinking its Alzheimers, but thats not necessarily the case. For those who have this concern, I can teach them ways to exercise the brain that can help to ward off the mental symptoms of normal aging.Ž Participants in Ryersons class will learn about the four types of forgetting, how they can move information from short-term to longterm memory, and a variety of tips for better brain “tness. We speci“cally target brain functions that include concentration, memory, “ne motor skills, visual observation, logic, numbers, vocabulary, visual-spatial thinking, creativity and imagination,Ž Ryerson said. This class is for all of us. Alzheimers is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and the third-leading cause of death among those 65 and older and its growing rapidly,Ž Franks said. Deaths because of Alzheimers have increased 89 percent since 2000. Its one of the most rapidly growing diseases in our country.Ž No one knows for sure what causes Alzheimers. Scientists, however, believe family history, age and genetic mutations, as well as environmental and lifestyle factors, all contribute to the increased incidence of Alzheimers. It is a form of dementia,Ž Franks said. There are many things that cause dementia, and Alzheimers is the most common form of dementia.Ž Among the lifestyle changes Franks discusses in her class are: getting enough sleep, eating healthy foods, pursuing integrative mind-body exercises, challenging the brain, staying socially engaged, avoiding head injuries and maintaining good cardiovascular “tness and a healthy weight.

Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018Why a ballot printed in Spanish?Editor: The English sample ballot was blank and a few ink scratches and the Spanish ballot was perfectly printed.Ž If the Sun is printed in English why did you print a sample Spanish ballot? I wish you would have printed a new sample ballot in English. Tired of politics and politicians. The amendments. Yes or no. No hidden agenda. The photo of the mom and dad and two-day-old baby was very sad. A few of us were talking about that story. Staying in a parking lot in a pickup truck. They lost everything. Hurricane Michael. Where is family or relatives that could help them? They are young and can start over. God bless them. Can you do a follow-up story on what is happening to them?Edie Wood Port CharlottePolitical cartoon in poor tasteEditor: I found the political cartoon in last Sundays Viewpoint, The Talk 2018,Ž appalling. If it was intended to play on whats been taking place during the Senates Kavanaugh hearings it is not only in poor taste but painfully inaccurate. I too feel for the apparent agony Ms. Ford went through during this process. However, by her own admission she was uncertain of the key facts, and considering its been 35 years who wouldnt be? As the investigation moved forward her recollection became clearer. Come on, people. When is this going to stop? If we ever hope this country to heal weve got to stop this irresponsible sensationalism by those very institutions that we look to for facts to provide guidance in forming intelligent opinions. Cheap shots to sell papers is below us all.Patti Smith North PortCoastal sand isnt toxic?Editor: This letter is a plea. A plea to our county government, our local business community, and to the journalists at the Sun. We have residents of Southwest Florida who are afraid to visit our beaches. They believe that the sands on our beaches are toxic, including Englewood Beach and all of Manasota Key. I personally know both longtime local year-round residents and snowbirds who are terri“ed to visit our beaches and refuse to do so until they receive proof from local authorities that the sands are not toxic. We need to do something about this. These folks are waiting for an of“cial entity to tell them whether the sands are safe or not. Someone needs to take charge and test our sand ASAP, or we are going to continue to see a downturn in our local coastal economy. At the least, and as a start, we need to see some investigative journalism into this issue. Is their any evidence at this point that the sands are dangerously contaminated? Is anyone testing anywhere? What can be done to get testing started on our local beaches? This is an urgent need. Testing and veri“cation of the health of our beaches is owed to all of the tax-paying residents and visitors to our local beaches. Please take action now.Diane C. White PlacidaExamine your conscience before votingEditor: Retirees, please vote for a senator who will protect Medicare and Social Security, our stopgap to poverty. Certainly, you cannot vote for Scott, who is the face of the biggest “ne ever assessed for Medicare fraud. He had the opportunity to insure nearly a million employed Floridians but refused. Scott has a record of using health care as political tool rather than a stop-loss to poverty. As to DeSantis, more talk without any reference to his record of failures. He voted 100 percent of the time with his party to dismantle the ACA, including coverage for those with pre-existing medical conditions. A look at his record shows his failure to protect our environment the source of our lucrative tourism business and his failure to provide adequate funding for public education. We have an opportunity to vote for those who will guard against privatizing Medicare and Social Security; protect access to health care for those with pre-existing medical conditions and advocate for adequate funding for public education and giving the employed a real pay raise. Check the records. Vote for someone who will bring dignity back in all work and advocate for equitable pay for all school district employees making education an attractive vocation again. Vote for those who will protect our tourism business by bringing science back in providing safe water and clean air not just campaign donors. Vote for Democrats. Yes for SuccessŽ „ vote yes.Ž You do not want the graduates and dropouts from the lower 15 percent of all U.S. students for needed services, including our military personnel. Voting yesŽ is not just about teachers, rather students, families and us.Betty Gissendanner Port CharlotteBring back glue that bonds us allEditor: Aristotle believed that friendships form when people are attracted to each other by virtue, a concept that evolved rapidly thereafter with the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus. Two millenia of study of that event de“ned an ascending spiral of truth „ leading to goodness, then to beauty, then to love and “nally to Godliness: the simple act of loving God and each other as he loves us. The word truth is the cornerstone of all love, and it is missing in our hateful modern interactions. Without truth love dies, and friendships become transactional, self-concerned and false, and then they shrivel, as we see everywhere today. An Augustinian priest in the mid-14th century, Simon Fidati, said this about truth in friendship: A true friend is better than a treasure, for he is not vulnerable to thieves or robbers. A true friend gives more attention to friendship than to the person with whom he is disposed to be friendly. For indeed the person often disappoints, but the friendship is always the same. If a friend looks on a friend as the highest cause of friendship, he can never bring about a separation, even though the persons bad behavior had deserved it, but he will wait for an improvement, or when the wrongdoing merits it, a suppression.Ž Endemic untruthfulness by cowardly leaders in every sector of society has birthed this tsunami of anarchic evil now crashing down upon us. Aristotle had it right. Only truth told truthfully „ the backbone of virtue „ can again bond together individuals in friendships that transcend these noxious self-seeking behaviors. Let it be.Bob Strayton Punta GordaAllow Keesling to complete visionEditor: I attended a meet and greet at the Sheraton Four Points recently to learn more about our current mayor, Rachel Keesling. I didnt know who to vote for. I found Rachel to be incredibly engaging and honest in answering my questions. I didnt know that Rachel has been a major player in promoting the current initiatives facing our city, such as the reverse osmosis water plant; the Ponce de Leon Park and Peace River Wildlife Center redesign and construction; Buckleys Pass; the Citywide Master Plan, including Gilchrist Park and the Waterfront; and the Downtown/Historic District Development. I didnt know of Rachels efforts over the past years to put Punta Gorda on the map with her participation in the Southwest Florida League of Cities, of which she is currently president. I didnt know that she grew up in Punta Gorda and married her high school friend. I do know that I will vote for Rachel Keesling for mayor. Rachels vision, leadership and state/national credibility will help Punta Gorda complete the above initiatives and attain the FEMA and state funds promised us for our seawall repair. Now is not the time to experiment with change. Allow Rachel to ful“ll her vision in a coherent and coordinated manner.Susan Miller Punta GordaVIEWPOINTPublisher „ Glen Nickerson Executive editor „ Jim Gouvellis Editorial page editor „ Stephen Baumann Commentary Editor „ John Hackworth Email letters to OUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITOR OUR POSITION: Charlotte County commissioners did the right thing by voting to support subsidized housing in Punta Gorda.The Charlotte County Commissions 3-2 vote to loan $425,625 to the Punta Gorda Housing Authority was a shot in the arm for the areas housing woes. Charlotte County commissioners Stephen R. Deutsch, Ken Doherty and Bill Truex voted in favor of the loan. Chris Constance and Joe Tiseo voted no. Tiseo said he had a problem with the fact the $13.2 million project was not bid out. Constance said he had an issue with the process and the bureaucracy.Ž Norstar Development USA was awarded the contract to build the 56 units on Airport Road in Punta Gorda. Norstar was awarded the contract because it has yet to completely replace 184 Housing Authority units lost during Hurricane Charley „ rebuilding 180 of those to date. Norstar will bid out work to area subcontractors and return 1 percent of its fees. Rent at the new development will be based on income. Truex said the county would be a foolŽ not to do its part to push the project forward. We agree. Together Charlottes incredible report on the urgent need for more affordable housing outlines how families bringing in an income in the $40,000 range “nd it very dif“cult to live here. And, when that happens, Charlotte County loses the employees we need to staff our restaurants, put new roofs on our homes and even teach in our schools and “ll positions in health care. Hurricane Michaels destruction in the Panhandle will only worsen our problem. The rush there to replace houses, businesses and apartment complexes will drain our workforce and raise building costs. Tiseos vote in principle was a little surprising but we can understand his position, even if we do not necessarily agree. Constance, however, has been a vocal and stubborn voice against any move to ease the housing crunch. He has stated in the past that he believes the market will take care of the problem. Recently, Constance criticized Economic Development Director Lucienne Pears during the commissioners job reviews for administrators. He said, in so many words, that Pears pursuit of affordable housing at the Bachmann Tract was not well thought out, even hinting that it was outside her role as economic development director. The Bachmann Tract is county-owned land that Pears „ and the other four commissioners „ is pushing to rezone and turn over to a developer with the promise of building more affordable housing to attract families who cannot afford to live here now. It is an outside-the-box idea that we applaud Pears for. In our book, that is what Pears is paid to do. Economic development cannot happen if the county does not have the workforce to “ll jobs and build projects. Pears knows that. Along with her recruitment of developers for Murdock Village, Lost Lagoon and Sunseeker, she knows that has to go hand in hand with housing projects to accommodate future employees. Other counties are ahead of Charlotte when it comes to housing for their workforce. In Collier County, the County Commission recently approved a handful of recommendations from staff to create more affordable housing. It is designing a community housing plan to do just that. And, in Broward County on Floridas pricey East Coast, county commissioners are putting $200 million into a program to make it easier for teachers, medical technicians and those with moderate incomes afford a place to live, according to the Sun Sentinel. We cannot solve this problem unless we build units,Ž Commissioner Nan Rich told the Sun Sentinel. Charlotte County cant bury its head in the sand and ignore the housing situation. If we are to grow, we need workers and they must have places to live they can afford at the salaries employers can afford to pay in our market.Charlotte is right to support Housing Authority HOW TO SUBMIT A LETTER TO THE EDITOR Letters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018 E/N/C Page 7VIEWPOINTDo they live in two different worlds? White college graduate women favor Democrats over Republicans in House elections by a 62 to 35 percent margin. White non-college-graduate men favor Republicans over Democrats in House elections by a 58 to 38 percent margin. Those results are from a Washington Post-Schar School poll conducted in 69 seriously contested congressional districts, 63 of them currently held by Republicans. The numbers in other polls are only slightly different for these two groups. They all tell the same story. These Americans live in the same relatively small slices of America (average population about 750,000), not many miles away from one another if theyre in major metropolitan areas or in similar communities in rural districts. But they take very different „ often angrily different „ views on where the nation is headed and on sensitive issues. Most, though, take a similar view of what has long been considered a decisive issue: the economy. Fully 77 percent in the survey rate the economy positively, a huge contrast with just about every survey taken between 2000 and 2016. Several months of 4 percent growth, considered impossible by some economists, has apparently been impossible to ignore. But when asked their view of the direction of the nation apart from the economy,Ž the respondents revert to partisan type. White college women are especially negative, and white non-college men are solidly positive. Anyone whose personal acquaintance ranges across these groups can appreciate why one “nds President Donald Trump repellent and the other congenial. But theres a policy component, too. Its not that white college women are diehard Keynesians and white non-college men supply-siders. People tend to tailor their economic theories to partisan preference, not vice versa. But the economic policies of the last two administrations and concurrent trends have had „ and were intended to have „ very different effects on white college women and white non-college men. Then-President Barack Obamas 2009 stimulus package was heavily tilted toward college women. As my American Enterprise Institute colleague Christina Hoff Sommers wrote in The Weekly Standard in June 2009, the Obama economic teams original idea was to “nance infrastructure, construction and manufacturing, sectors that lost 3 million jobs from 2007-09. But feminist groups objected. Obama economist Christina Romer, Sommers wrote, recalled that her “rst email was from a womens group saying We dont want this stimulus package to just create jobs for burly men.Ž So Obama ditched his machoŽ stimulus plan for one stimulating creation of jobs in government, and especially in education and health care, which had gained 588,000 jobs during the 2007-09 recession. Forget the bridge building and electric grid modernization; lets subsidize more administrators, facilitators and liaisons. The results were disappointing. Sputtering growth nudged up toward 3 percent and down toward zero, as it was during the last quarter of the Obama administration. Administrators outnumbered teachers in higher education but added little value. Government payrolls were temporarily sheltered from cuts. There was little recovery in bluecollar jobs, reduced life expectancy among downscale groups, opioid dependency and deaths. There were millions of men lingering on the disability rolls. The trajectory of the economy „ and the bene“ciaries „ seems different in the Trump presidency so far. Growth is more robust, obviously, though some economists thought this was impossible. And the biggest gains are, in contrast with the last 30 years, in blue-collar jobs and downscale earnings. Its not clear theres a connection between these trends and Trumps policies and promises to make blue-collar America prosperous again. White House econo mic adviser Lawrence Kudlow argues that tax reform „ especially corporate tax cuts and 100 percent depreciation „ has stimulated capital spending on manufacturing and jobs for burly men. Thats certainly plausible, though its probably wise to wait and see whether the trend continues. Its also possible that economic gains or losses have been less important than increases in peoples feelings when they are earning respect. And their angry feelings when they feel theyre not. How does this affect next months election? White college womens anger has given Democrats an edge in enthusiasm and money most of this cycle. White non-college mens apparently rising anger over Brett Kavanaughs nomination and pride in Trumps economy have apparently given Republicans a late boost. How much? White college turnout is overstated in polls, says The New York Times Nate Cohn, and overanticipated by a white college-dominated media. The Republican boosts size „ and perhaps its existence „ is unclear. The Post poll puts Democrats up 4 percent in its 69 districts; the NBC NewsWall Street Journal poll has the parties even in the most competitive races. What looked like a Whole Foods blue wave for Democrats looks more like a narrow Democratic „ or maybe Republican „ House majority. Michael Barone is a senior political analyst for the Washington Examiner, resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and longtime co-author of The Almanac of American Politics.Will burly men stop House Democrats blue wave? Michael BARONEWashington Examiner LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Content in our own universeEditor: Sincere gratitude for the outstanding letter appearing in the Oct. 21 edition of the Sun. If my dear friends and I, here and in many other areas of our country, did not know better; we would have thought he was listening inŽ to our conversations. Many years ago I gave my future philosophy professor son a shirt that read Question Reality.Ž That can be a real challenge, particularly in these political times of our country. Perhaps, however, those of us who continue to admire persons of character, who treat others as they would like to be treated and possess those qualities we call virtuesŽ can choose to be content in our very own alternate universe.ŽJoyce Robbins Port CharlotteVote against GOP tax cut scamEditor: After a $3.5 trillion tax gift to the wealthiest, Mitch McConnell is ready to do the predictable. He wants to hammer the public with a proposed cut to Social Security, Medicare, and the Affordable Care Act. Exactly who does our government work for? Evidently, it works for billionaires and corporate donors as our right-wing Supreme Court has endorsed. Thanks, Citizens United! Corporations like Exxon got a tax break worth 95 percent of the pittance citizen taxpayers saved. At the same time, we run a trillion-dollar de“cit due to Republican expenditures. Its the same old scam on us: cut taxes at the top and everyone below works two or three jobs to pay for it and survive. Tell your representative youve had enough of this tired old con and vote!Lisa Bailey Rotonda WestSocial Security, Medicare not entitlementsEditor: The de“nition of entitlement is The fact of having a right to something.Ž We have paid into Social Security all of our working lives, and are still paying for Medicare through deductions in our Social Security checks, but the Republicans are coming after these things which we have a right to. They never mentioned it when they gave huge tax deductions to the wealthy and big corporations which is increasing the de“cit by a $1.3 trillion, but now Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and even Marco Rubio who said We have to grow the economy, but we have to deal long-term with Social Security and MedicareŽ are all of a sudden concerned about it. Tax cuts for corporations were supposed to create jobs, but all theyve done is create larger pro“ts that were used to buy back stock, thus driving up the price of their stocks. That only rewarded those in upper management whose compensation is mostly paid in stock options. They praised the thousanddollar bonus checks that a few companies gave out, but if you do the math that one-time bonus amounts to less than a 50-cent-an-hour wage increase over a year. The numbers say were getting to full employment, but people are working two or three jobs to make ends meet, and Ford just announced 24,000 layoffs due to tariffs. Remember these things when you vote, and vote Democratic.Tom Scott Punta GordaOn this, failure is not an optionEditor: Did you ever consider why you ended up living in Charlotte County „ an old Florida feel-good community „ somewhat insulated from the rest of the crazy world? Its quality of life. When considering the upcoming referendum, and the term school tax,Ž its natural for retirees to think, I already raised my kids.Ž But, by having that on your life resume, you understand its not a cliche that our children are our most precious natural resource. You realize better than most, we can pay now in educating them, or much more later, in social ills, if we fail. Failure will affect our quality of life, plain and simple. I cant stress enough how important this referendum is to what goes on every day in our classrooms and our future. The average tax increase would only add about what youd pay for a single fast-food breakfast, each month ($7.42 on $114,000 home). As a late-in-life teacher I can tell you we have incredible students with varying needs in CCPS. They are worthy of your yesŽ vote. You have probably been around some of my culinary students who work at more than 50 area restaurants and retirement homes. Teachers come from all walks of life. I was a policy analyst for two governors, ran corporate yachts for a Fortune 400 CEO, captained/owned an American National Historic Landmark Windjammer business for 28 years. Teaching is the most rewarding thing Ive done in my life. Please help us make our communityPaul DeGaeta Punta GordaKeesling is fair, consistentEditor: Over the last eight years, Rachel Keesling has spent time building relationships with those people: citizens, business owners and regional government leaders. She understands how to deal with rules and regulations and has increased the quality of life in Punta Gorda. She is a dedicated public servant and has a long-term vision coupled with hometown values, this is why I support her re-election. The mayorship should not be passed around, it is far too important to continue strengthening and building on the foundation Rachel has created. Her parents live here and they are raising her kids here, so she has a multi-generational perspective of this place not from other places around the country. Although I do not live in Punta Gorda, I do own property and have interests in the betterment of the community. My husband, is an intervention cardiologist, dedicated to serving the residents of the community and shares my support for Rachel. I know Rachel has created a situation where there will be big shoes to “ll.Ž Before you, think its time for a change,Ž put your emotions away. Rachel has been consistent, fair and for the betterment of the entire community. Vote Rachel Keesling on Nov. 6.Aymee Martinez Port Charlotte Stakes too high to vote RepublicanEditor: The stakes are high. Donald Trumps yes-man, Ron DeSantis, said he couldnt name a single issue on which he disagrees with Trump. Rick Scott of Florida is doing a fantastic jobƒŽ Trump tweeted in August, as algae bloom became a nightmare for business owners and residents, killing dolphins and sea turtles. DeSantis, Scott, and Trump are a threat to public health. In 2012, Scott repealed Floridas septic tank inspection law „ over 2.6 million homes have septic tanks. Phosphorus and nitrogen from these tanks can contribute to algae blooms. Following the Parkland school killings, Scott wanted more mental health funding. Floridas per capita spending on mental health fell to 50th in the nation over the past seven years. Congressman DeSantis voted noŽ on Protecting Seniors Access to Medicare Act.Ž Ronald Reagan called Medicare socialized medicineŽ and Republicans have been trying to weaken it for decades. Hiring a Republican to protect your health insurance from Democrats is like hiring a burglar to protect your house from the police department. DeSantis voted to repeal the health care law countless times; Trump proposed $350 billion in net Medicare cuts; Scott has left over 300,000 working poor without health insurance. Republicans of all stripes put business interests over environmental interests. Republican names on the November ballot may be different by district, but they are, de facto, Trump. None of them will protect those with pre-existing conditions or the environment. The stakes are too high to leave Republicans in charge „ of anything.Teresa Jenkins Punta GordaShow that we take care of our ownEditor: I would like to applaud the many community members who have written in favor of the referendum for CCPS schools. I was raised in this town and went to the schools here. Like many teens, I couldnt wait to leave and “nd a town with things to do past 9 p.m., so I went to college with no intention of ever coming back. After Hurricane Charley, I saw my town devastated, in need and suffering. I witnessed a town come together and work to rebuild. Neighbors helping neighbors, no matter what. I was living in a big city in North Florida and knew that my current town wasnt capable of doing that. I missed the connection that Charlotte County had. I, along with my husband and child, moved back to be with my family here. I returned to the community that I was missing, where my roots were, and where my childhood memories were formed. Now, teaching at a local elementary school, my husband and I have the ability to contribute to that community. I am hoping that the community comes together again to help. The CCPS system needs your help. Our students and employees are in dire need of your support. If you have questions before you vote for the Charlotte County school referendum, please ask. The title is Ad Valorem Millage Election.Ž We urge you to ”ip the ballot over and vote yesŽ on the last item “rst. Lets show that we still take care of our own.Carson Olmsted Punta GordaVote Democrat for myriad bad thingsEditor: President Obamas administration gave us: 40 million people on food stamps, real unemployment in double digits (95 million dropped out of workforce); African-American and Hispanic unemployment in double digits; yearly GDP below 3 percent; folks forced into expensive Obamacare; illegals were welcomed while citizens were suffering; the increase in illegals strained our welfare and education systems. And Democrats were happy. Since President Trump was elected, the stock markets up 40 percent; GDP over 4 percent; African-American, Hispanic, and female unemployment at 50-year lows; millions less on food stamps; manufacturing jobs increasing in spite of President Obamas claim they would never return; individual and corporate tax cuts stimulated economy beyond any predictions; a wall along our southern border being built in spite of Democrats love affair with illegals; wages are increasing; judges that believe in our Constitution being appointed at all levels despite Democrat opposition. And Democrats are not happy. Whatever your opinion of President Trump is, the above facts should cause Americans to cheer. If you vote for a Democrat, youre voting for high unemployment, increased food stamp dependence, increased taxes, lower wages, open borders and a signi“cant increase in illegals straining welfare programs, more sanctuary cities, abolishing ICE, attacks on the 2nd Amendment, socialism, and more George Soros-funded antifa mobs. Voting to increase African-American, Hispanic and female unemployment could be considered racist and sexist. And remember, it was the Democrats and President Johnson that took Social Security out of its lock box.Alex Zappavigna Port Charlotte


Page 8 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESBy WARREN RICHARDSONSUN CORRESPONDENTSARASOTA „ Just as she did last year, Sarasota County Commission Chairwoman Nancy Detert gave criticism of County Attorney Steve DeMarsh for his speed. My only problem „ youre like all attorneys „ you move at glacial speed when I like things fast,Ž Detert said. I would like things to happen a little quicker. But youve kept us from stepping on any major land mines.Ž Detert made her comments during at Wednesdays commission meeting when commissioners conducted their annual evaluation of both DeMarsh and County Administrator Jonathan Lewis. DeMarsh, like Lewis, received glowing reviews from commissioners regarding his work over the past year. Both men are the only direct employees of commissioners and their contracts call for an annual performance evaluation. Mr. DeMarsh gives me valuable legal insight. He does everything he can to protect us legally,Ž Commissioner Alan Maio, who gave DeMarsh straight As in his written evaluation, said. He always looks to make things happen,Ž added Commissioner Mike Moran, who also gave DeMarsh the highest grade possible. Commissioner Charles Hines, who also praised DeMarsh for doing a great job, voiced a mild criticism directed toward litigation efforts. Hines, who is also an attorney, said he would like to see more shade meetings when the county is involved in litigation to be more creative in ways to approach a case.Ž Commissioner Paul Caragiulo did not give DeMarsh grades in the various categories in his written evaluation, but noted that DeMarshs office is extremely professionalŽ and highly competent.Ž I appreciate your support and the comments supportive of staff,Ž DeMarsh said after commissioners finished their comments. Over the past year, DeMarsh and his team of attorneys have assisted commissioners and staff in changes to the zoning code regulating medical marijuana, negotiations with the Atlanta Braves, and defending the countys vacation of a portion of Beach Road on Siesta Key. In accordance with his contract, commissioners also approved a 3 percent pay hike for DeMarsh, bringing his base salary to $238,000. DeMarsh has served as the county attorney since Oct. 26, 2004, when he was appointed to the position, succeeding the former county attorney, Jorge Fernandez. He joined the office of the county attorney in 1992.Email: jondaltonwr@gmail.comWorking slow doesnt hinder raiseSarasota commissioners evaluate employeesBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERENGLEWOOD „ Alameda Isles isnt letting the 100th anniversary of Veterans Day go unobserved. The 75 members of Alameda Isles Veterans Association are already planning their celebration. It honors and shows respect for our veterans,Ž said Bob Soucy, the commander of the association who spent 23 years from 1962 to 1985 serving in the U.S. Air Force. Veterans Day originally was Armistice Day, marking the cessation of fighting for World War I on the 11th hour of Nov. 11, 1918. The Treaty of Versailles officially ended the war on June 28, 1919. In 1919, U.S. President Woodrow Wilson official proclaimed Nov. 11 as the commemoration of Armistice Day. At the request of various veterans groups, Congress and President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the legislation 1954 to change Armistice Day to be Veterans Day, a day to honor all American veterans of all wars. Soucy isnt the only member of his family to serve in the military. His father, Romey, couldnt serve due to poor vision but his fathers four brothers „ Bert, Lucian, Roger and Roland „ served in World War II. Soucys brothers „ Paul, Jean, Armand and Jerry „ served. Paul did a tour in Vietnam and Jerry, U.S. Air Force medic, was assigned as a translator to Haiti after the earthquake. His son, Mark, and nephew, Kelly, also answered the call.

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.

PROVIDED BY MCCAs thousands of children prepare to embark on their trick or treating jaunts in neighborhoods near and far, it is best to once again revisit safety tips that can help ensure this Halloween is enjoyable and injury-free. € Visibility: Visibility is key when donning a Halloween costume. Children should be dressed in highly visible costumes so drivers can easily see them. Parents and chaperones also should be dressed in bright colors. Reflective tape and flashlights also make pedestrians more visible to oncoming cars. € Routes: Children and adults should plan their trick-or-treating routes ahead of time. This way they kids can be found quickly if they are separated from their groups, and parents can choose safe neighborhoods. Choose neighborhoods and paths that have the least amount of automobile traffic. € Walk, dont run. Trick-or-treaters should stick to sidewalks and only cross the street at intersection crosswalks. Make sure kids know to avoid darting out between cars or cutting across lawns and driveways. When dar kness sets in, fast-moving children can be difficult to see. € Visit only lit houses. Residents who dont want to answer the door will typically leave their homes exterior lights off. Only visit homes that are decorated, bright and welcoming to trick-or-treaters. € Go in groups. Children should go out in groups and always be accompanied by an adult chaperone. Feeling FitPort Charlotte € Punta Gorda € North Port € Englewood € ArcadiaSunday, October 28, 2018www.yoursun.comOne hundred years ago, influenza entered the lexicon of the most feared and deadly diseases, alongside cholera, smallpox, tuberculosis, bubonic plague (the Black Death), Ebola, and polio among diseases synonymous with evil. The 1918 global influenza pandemic killed more than 50 million people, including 675,000 Americans. Advances in science and medicine have vastly improved the survival rate for influenza (and other diseases on the list). The 1918 pandemic stimulated research on the influenza virus, and in 1933, the influenza type A was isolated in ferrets. The first vaccine for influenza was developed five years later and given to U.S. soldiers during World War II. A 1944 study of the new vaccine found that it did not appear to have an impact on clinical outcomes. In 1947, further evaluation of the influenza vaccine found no difference in health outcomes between those who were vaccinated and those who were not vaccinated. The flu poses a unique public health challenge, says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), since influenza viruses are constantly changing. Nevertheless, vaccines have evolved to the point where they are almost unanimously considered the best means of minimizing the effects of future influenza pandemics. Todays influenza vaccines protect against the three or four strains research suggests will be most common this By DR. NEIL ZUSMANZUSMAN EYE CARE CENTERZombie or devil contact lenses may elevate a Halloween costumes fright factor, but wearing them without a prescription could result in something far more terrifying „ blindness. Zusman Eyecare Center joins the American Academy of Ophthalmology in urging Halloween shoppers to understand the risks of wearing over-the-counter contact lenses. While it is illegal to sell non-prescription contact lenses, they can still be easily purchased at many places such as beauty supply stores, costume shops and on the web. Falsely advertised as one-size“ts-allŽ or no prescription necessary,Ž these lenses can cause serious eye damage. Last year, one girl became partially blind in her left eye, the top layer of her cornea having been ripped off, after a mere four hours of wearing non-prescription contact lenses she bought at a jewelry booth.Health & Hope DanMEARNSC PHOTO PROVIDEDTrick or treat safelyOphthalmologists warn of frightening risks of wearing contact lenses without a prescription PHOTO PROVIDEDUnderstand the risks of wearing over-the-counter contact lenses.PROVIDED BY MCCMillions of people celebrate Halloween every year. Borrowed or adapted from a few different festivals that once took place in Europe, Halloween has origins in the Roman Feralia festival, the Celtic summers end festival Samhain and the Catholic All Saints Day. Trick-or-treating is a signi“cant part of the Halloween festivities, but for many people, the real delight is choosing a costume. The right costume is not only one that suits the spirit of Halloween, but also one thats safe. The Prevention First Organization says that collisions with cars, eye injuries from sharp objects and burns from ”ammable costumes account for the most youth emergency room visits on Halloween. Just how does one create a safe costume? Consider these pointers when preparing for the arrival of Oct. 31. € Rely on ”ashlights and re”ective tape to make trick-or-treaters more visible during evening walks. The re”ective tape can be incorporated right into the costume design. € Choose hats and face paints in lieu of masks. Masks can block a childs vision and impede a youngsters ability to check for traf“c. € Ensure that costumes do not drag on the ”oor, as costumes that are too long can pose a tripping hazard. € Have children wear comfortable, ”at shoes to reduce the risk of tripping or falls. € Make sure children walk on sidewalks and well-lit paths. They also should avoid darting out into the street to run to another home.Safe costumes can prevent Halloween mishaps PHOTO PROVIDED The right costume is not only one that suits the spirit of Halloween, but also one thats safe.Get your flu shot asapDAN | 2 COSTUMES | 5 SAFELY | 5 CONTACT | 5 Charlotte Heart & Vascular Instituteof North Port Now Accepting New Patients.

It does have a moldygreen colored bun, after all. This Halloween-themed burger „ known as the Nightmare KingŽ „ will be at select Burger King restaurants for a limited time. But be warned, the burger doesnt just look scary. The Nightmare King increases your chances of having nightmares by 3.5 times,Ž Burger King said with a YouTube video promoting the burger. Thats according to the results of a clinical study,Ž the statement said. The fast-food chain said it worked to prove that the Nightmare King can actually give you nightmares because of its unique build.Ž The burger includes a mix of proteins like bacon, chicken and beef,Ž as well as some oozy cheese. The hypothesis was that this new burger could cause nightmares,Ž the brand said. So, the Burger King brand turned to science to validate this.Ž And that it did, according to a press release from the brand: The Burger King brand ceates a Halloween sandwich clinically proven to induce nightmares.Ž In partnership with the Paramount Trials, Florida Sleep & Neuro Diagnostic Services, Inc. and Goldforest Inc., Burger King conducted the clinical, scienti“c sleep study with 100 participants (or victims) over 10 nights, according to the press release. Each participant ate the Nightmare King before going to bed, the release states, and doctors and scientists tracked various signals while they slept. According to previous studies, 4 percent of the population experiences nightmares in any given night,Ž said Jose Gabriel Medina, a specialized somnologist and the studys lead doctor, according to the statement. But, after eating the Nightmare King, the data obtained from the study indicated that the incidence of nightmares increased by 3.5 times.Ž In the promotional video, one participant said that someone in her dream turned into the green-bunned burger. The burger then transformed into the “gure of a snake,Ž she said. Another participant said aliens started attacking the boat he was on during his bad dream. In the release, Medina said the burger can cause nightmares because of the protein and cheese combination. He said it leads to an interruption of the subjects REM (Rapid Eye Movement) cycles, during which we experience the majority of our dreams.Ž But just how scienti“c was that clinical study? And can it be trusted? Maybe not, according to LiveScience. In reality, the study the burger chain commissioned to find out if the green-bunned combination chickenbeef-and-bacon burger caused nightmares was not designed to prove anything, clinically or not,Ž LiveScience reported. And what little data there is on food and nightmares suggests that, if anything, fast food should reduce bad dreams.Ž A 2015 study published in the Frontiers of Psychology found that people who prefer fast food actually reported fewer dreams and nightmares than those who preferred organic foods. Participants who expressed a preference for fast foods reported less frequent dream recall, as well as fewer recurring dreams, nightmares, and sexual dreams,Ž the study said. In a 2015 Psychology Today article, Michelle Carr with Dream Factory attempted to determine whether certain foods can cause bad dreams. While the authors did find evidence that people believe food can instigate bizarre or disturbing dreams, most commonly accusing dairy, whether these dreams are indeed caused by the power of cheese, or simply misheld beliefs, remains to be seen,Ž she wrote. LiveScience also reports that because all 100 participants ate the burgers, there was no control group for comparison. With no control group, the study cant prove anything about the burgers effect on nightmares,Ž LiveScience reported. Control groups are an essential part of the scienti“c method,Ž Matheus Melo Pithon wrote in Evidence-based Orthodontics. Regardless, Burger King stands by the clinical study, and the brand leaves its customers with this statement: Caution: proceed at your own risk. Youve been warned.ŽHalloween burger is clinically proven to cause nightmares. Or is it? PHOTO PROVIDEDBurger Kings Nightmare KingŽ burger. season. The vaccines are designed to protect against all of these viruses. Thats why your doctor or pharmacist asks if youve had your flu shot whenever they see you this time of year. Flu season occurs in the fall and winter in the United States, with peak season having occurring anywhere from late November through March. Flu season last year was deadlier than it has been for at least four decades, killing 80,000 Americans, the CDC reported in late September. Among the dead were two Florida children, a 7-year-old and a 17-year-old who died from influenzarelated complications. Neither child was vaccinated. The CDC recommends that everyone over the age of six months get the annual flu shot, especially those in high-risk groups such as pregnant women, senior citizens and young children. Flu season varies in timing, severity, and length. It is impossible to predict what the 2018-19 influenza season will be like in Florida, although the CDC is predicting a milder one and says there are preliminary signs that the vaccine match with current strains is good. There are a number of ways to get a free ”u shot. Your workplace may offer them to employees, and your physician through your health insurance, which is now required to pay for your ”u shot without any co-payment due to Affordable Care Act coverage rules (when given by an in-network provider). If you are over age 65, Medicare Part B covers the cost of ”u shots, and most state Medicaid agencies cover the cost of ”u shots for Medicaid participants as well. The Florida Department of Health in Charlotte County (DOH-Charlotte) offers free flu vaccinations for pregnant women and children ages six months to 18 years. Appointments for these vaccinations can be made by calling 941-624-7200. Sarasota-DOH provides flu vaccines to adults and children by appointment or on a walk-in basis at the following locations while supplies last: William L. Little Health and Human Services Center, 941-861-2784 or 941-861-2900; North Port Health Center, 941-861-3864. DeSoto-DOH provides immunizations to children who meet program eligibility at no cost to the parent or guardian. If none of these options are available, numerous area retailers are offering free or inexpensive flu shots for the 2018-2019 flu season. Annual vaccination is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from influenza and its potentially severe complications. Now is the perfect time to get vaccinated. Comments and suggestions are always welcome.

It also helps to stretch the abdominal muscles. Many people also find the exercise quite helpful in relieving pain at various parts of the back. To perform the exercise you, first, sit comfortably in a chair. Next, you move to the very edge of the seat and grab the chairs two back legs. Inhaling, you arch your chest and throw your head backward. You continue arching the chest and lowering the head until it (the head) touches the back of the chair. Hold the position and breathe for as long as comfortably possible then exhale as you return to the start position. The exercise may be repeated up to six times.PERFORMANCE POINTS€ The performance and the effect of the exercise will be influenced by the height of the chair back and the length of the seat. In general, the shorter the chair back, the greater the arching of the chest and back. Also, the longer the seat, the greater the area (length) of the back that is affected by the exercise. € When performing the exercise, your feet should be positioned on the outside of the front legs of the chair. € As you perform the exercise, the hands grabbing the back legs of the chair should be allowed to slide down as you arch your back and slide up as you recover from the arched position. € Persons attempting the exercise for the first time should avoid holding the breath. They should, instead, breathe normally throughout the performance of the exercise. This exercise may not be suitable for persons with certain heart conditions and should be performed cautiously by those with spinal and lower back problems.

The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018 E/N/C Page 3 PROVIDED BY MCCWhat are the horrors of Halloween? Many might say encountering a gruesome ghoul or a blood-sucking vampire is the most horri“ c part of Halloween. However, an allergic reaction can be just as scary as ghosts and goblins come Halloween. The candy a child eats, the makeup kids use as part of their costumes or even the costume itself can cause an allergic reaction. Parents and kids need to be careful and exercise their due diligence to avoid possible allergens.MakeupAccording to the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, Halloween makeup can trigger an allergic reaction or symptoms of asthma. Inexpensive makeup may contain preservatives that can cause a rash and swelling of the skin. Formaldehyde is a very common preservative used in many of these products, but some products labeled formaldehyde-free can still cause allergic reactions. Certain makeup is not advisable to use around the mouth or eyes, so be certain to check all packaging for any warnings. Highquality theater makeup may be a better option than the cheap crayon sticks sold at costume stores. In any event, always test makeup on a small area of the skin well in advance of Halloween. If a rash or any abnormality occurs, do not use the makeup.CostumesCostumes can induce an allergic reaction as well. If costumes are older and packed away in a basement or attic, trapped dust and dust mites can make it dif“ cult for those with allergies or asthma to breathe. Accessories used for many common Halloween costumes also may cause reactions. Crowns, magic wands and faux jewelry that uses metals like nickel may cause rashes and irritation. Beware of nickel and cobalt, which can trigger allergic reactions.DecorationsThose who want to create a spooky environment at their Halloween parties should be advised that fog machines can trigger asthma attacks in some people. Its best to check with party attendants before “ ring up the fog machine.Edible treatsFood allergies abound in children and adults. Many commercially produced candy and chocolate bars are manufactured in factories that also process peanuts and other tree nuts, so exercise caution with treats. Baked goods may contain wheat, gluten, eggs, soy, and any number of other food allergens. Its wise to have a variety of inedible treats available for trick-or-treaters or partygoers, including stickers, pencils and small toys. Halloween should be an enjoyable day for the young and the young at heart. This beloved holiday can be made safer by avoiding common allergy triggers.Avoid Halloween makeup allergies and other reactions PHOTO PROVIDEDInexpensive makeup may contain preservatives that can cause a rash and swelling of the skin.Lung cancer support groupThe North Port Lung Cancer Support Group meets from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. the third Wednesday of every month at Sarasota Memorial ER in North Port along Toledo Blade Boulevard.

Page 4 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018 PROVIDED BY MCCThousands of costume-clad children will embark on treatfinding missions in neighborhoods all across the country this Halloween. Everyone wants their Halloween festivities to be fun, but it is important that trickor-treaters and their chaperones prioritize safety as well. The child welfare organization Safe Kids says that twice as many child pedestrians are killed while walking on Halloween compared to other days of the year. In addition, the National Safety Council states that darting out or running into the road accounts for about 70 percent of pedestrian deaths or injuries among children between the ages of five and nine and about 47 percent of incidents for kids between the ages of 10 and 14. Ensuring trick-or-treating youngsters are visible to motorists can make Halloween safer for everyone involved. The American Academy of Pediatrics and other safety groups suggest the following strategies for safe trick-or-treating. € Supervise the festivities. Adults should chaperone young trick-or-treaters who are unlikely to be focused on safety in the midst of Halloween excitement. € Use reflective tape or LED lights. Dark costumes coupled with twilight can make it difficult for motorists to see trick-ortreating youngsters. Parents can improve the chances of their kids being seen by motorists by adhering reflective tape onto kids costumes. Glow sticks and wearable LED lights also can illuminate trick-or-treaters. € Carry flashlights. Children and/or chaperones who carry flashlights can improve their own visibility while also making themselves more visible to motorists. Flashlights help trick-or-treaters avoid holes, cracked pavement and other obstacles. For those children who want to free up their hands for better treat gathering, lights that strap to the head are an option. € Keep the lights on. Homeowners can do their part by keeping outdoor flood lights and accent lighting on to make paths safer for youngsters on the prowl for Halloween candy. € Choose face makeup over masks. Children wearing masks may not spot oncoming cars or other hazards. Face makeup wont affect kids visibility but will still help them look scary. With the right combination of caution and fun, Halloween can be an enjoyable time for youngsters and adults. Improve visibility while trick-or-treatingPHOTO PROVIDEDEnsuring trick-or-treating youngsters are visible to motorists can make Halloween safer for everyone involved. PROVIDED BY MCCHalloween is about embracing the scary and the spooky and enjoying all off the things that go bumpŽ in the night. Naturally, the holiday can drum up some fears and tap into peoples anxieties, especially when they come face-to-face with some of the symbols of Halloween. Some of these fears may be full-blown phobias. A phobia is de“ ned as an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something. Phobias can elicit feelings of dread and horror. In psychological terms, it is an anxiety disorder in which a person will go to great lengths to avoid a perceived danger. This danger is usually much greater in the persons mind than in real life. Several symbols of Halloween can be tied to phobias. A person with achluophobia may not enjoy the darkness of the Halloween night. Someone with coimetrophobia probably would not want to visit a cemetery. Coming in contact with a ghost would not be ideal for someone with phasmophobia. Anyone with wiccaphobia might fear meeting up with a broom-riding witch. One of the more common phobias is arachnophobia, which is a fear of spiders. Spider decorations are common come Halloween, so people with arachnophobia may struggle on and around Oct. 31. While Halloween will never fall on the thirteenth day of the month, the number 13 has been linked to Halloween festivities. Many people view the number 13 to be a harbinger of bad luck. This is especially so for those with triskaidekaphobia, or the fear of the number 13. Believe it or not, some people have a crippling fear of Halloween itself. This phobia is called samhainophobia. which is the fear of Halloween or the fear of the festival of the dead. The term samhainophobiaŽ originates from Samhain,Ž meaning summers end. Samhain was also the name of the festival celebrated by the Celts to mark the transition from summer to winter.Common Halloween phobias By DAVID CARACCIOTHE SACRAMENTO BEESpooky is all around us in October, from TV shows to costumes to store decorations. But how scary is too scary when it comes to children during Halloween? The Cleveland Clinic has weighed in on the matter. Each child is different, and its important for parents to know what their child is afraid of, said Dr. Neha Vyas, a family health physician at Cleveland Clinic, said in a video on the subject. You know your own child better than anybody and every child is unique,Ž she said. Most of the time, by the time they reach school age, they know how to separate “ ction from reality. Up until then, you should be very guarded in what they see in terms of Halloween.Ž Vyas said parents should make sure they tailor content on TV to the age of the youngest child that is watching. For very young children who are afraid of Halloween costumes, Vyas suggests allowing them to see mom or dad putting on their Halloween costume to help them understand that a mask is something fake, and that the person behind the costume is someone they know, according to the Cleveland Clinic. Its also important to keep in mind that everyone conquers their fears at different times in their life. Vyas advises parents to have a plan for those who have a teen or a preteen who feels pressure from friends to attend haunted houses this time of year „ but the child is not into it. Have an excuse ready so that you can pick them up early if you need to,Ž she said. Have a code word, that way, if they are getting very scared, and they dont want to go through with it, they can text you and then you can pick them up and have your excuse ready for them. Allow them an opportunity to grow at their own pace.ŽHow scary is too scary for kids during Halloween? PHOTO PROVIDEDHow scary is too scary for kids during Halloween?

The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018 E/N/C Page 5 BAYFRONT NEWS & NOTESProvided by JAMIE SMITHSTATE COLLEGE OF FLORIDAAdrienne Dejean works in admissions for State College of Florida, ManateeSarasota (SCF). In addition to helping get students enrolled in school, Dejean is a single mom who has little time for herself. She admits that has meant she hasnt always been proactive in taking care of her health. I was aware that I was supposed to have yearly mammograms, but I had been putting it off,Ž Dejean said. When I saw that the mobile mammogram was coming on campus, I really had no excuse, so I made my appointment.Ž A week after she had the mammogram on campus, Dejean r eceived a phone call informing her that her results were irregular and that she needed to have another mammogram immediately. Within a few months, Dejean had a total of three mammograms, an ultrasound and a biopsy. Doctors determined that she had stage one breast cancer. She credits SCFs wellness program for the early diagnosis. Without the program bringing the huge pink bus on the campus, she might have continued to put off her mammogram. I also found out through this process that I have a cancer gene, so in September of 2017, I had a bilateral mastectomy,Ž Dejean said. Because the cancer was caught early, I did not need chemo or radiation.Ž She said without the program, she doesnt know how long the cancer might have gone undiagnosed. I probably would not have known until it was in later stages, and it may have been too late to treat,Ž Dejean said. The wellness program saved my life.ŽEmployee credits SCF wellness program with saving her life DEJEAN Oct. 30, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Breastfeeding Class.

Halloween is an exciting day for youngsters, and following a few safety can make the day both fun and safe.SAFELYFROM PAGE 1Ophthalmologists „ the physicians and surgeons that specialize in medical and surgical eye care „ are reminding people of “ve frightening consequences of ignoring the warnings: 1. Scratches to the eye: If contacts are not professionally “tted to your eye, they can scratch the clear front window of the eye. This is called a corneal abrasion, which is not only painful, but can cause permanent damage. Just ask Laura Butler, who was in severe pain due to corneal abrasions 10 hours after putting in non-prescription lenses, which stuck to my eye like suction cups.Ž Treatment often involves medication and patching, but in some cases damage cannot be reversed. Butler now lives with a corneal scar, vision damage and a drooping eyelid. 2. Infection: Research shows wearing nonprescription contacts increases the risk of an infection called keratitis by 16 times.[i] Early treatment with antibiotic or steroid drops may preserve vision, but sometimes surgery, such as corneal transplantation, is necessary. Robyn Rouse had to have that surgery after she got an infection after wearing non-prescription lenses she bought at a local store. Twelve years later, she still has blurry vision in her left eye and uses daily drops to combat dry eye. 3. Pink eye: Never share contacts because doing so can spread germs, causing conditions such as pink eye. Highly contagious, pink eye treatment depends on the cause, but typically includes antibiotic drops. 4. Decreased vision: Whether from a corneal scratch or infection, wearing non-prescription contacts can lead to decreased vision. 5. Blindness: Its no scare tactic: wearing non-prescription contacts can lead to permanent vision loss. Julian Hamlin has had more than 10 surgeries and is now legally blind in his left eye after wearing contacts to change his eye color, a mistake hell live with forever. The Academy encourages the public to watch and share its No Prescription, No WayŽ public service announcement that shows the serious damage that these non-prescription costume contact lenses can in”ict on the eyes. Visit the Academys EyeSmart website to learn more about contact lens safety at Zusman Eye Care Center is a state of the art facility providing a variety of services ranging from routine eye exams to medical and surgical treatment of eye disease.

For more information, call 941-3769361 or visit the website at BY MCCHalloween is a favorite day for many children „ and even a number of adults. Halloween offers revelers the opportunity to dress up in costume, play tricks on unsuspecting individuals and cap off the day with treasure troves of candy. Approximately 600 million pounds of Halloween candy is sold each year in the United States. Around 90 million pounds of that is chocolate. The National Retail Foundation notes that more than two billion dollars is spent on candy come Halloween. But most of that candy will never be eaten. Many households take in more candy than they know what to do with on Halloween. Couple that with any leftover candy that may not have been grabbed by trick-ortreaters, and thats quite a bounty of lollipops, chocolate bars, candy corn, and taffy to manage. Rather than relegate candy to the trash can, proper storage and some other tips can preserve treats long after Halloween has come and gone. 1. Go nutty “ rst. Nuts and oils will not last as long as some other candy ingredients. Consume candy that is full of nuts “ rst. You can try freezing candy containing nuts, but there is no guarantee the texture will remain the same upon thawing. 2. Keep an eye on chocolate. Chocolate needs to be kept under cool conditions to prolong its shelf life. The National Confectioners Association says dark chocolate can be kept for one to two years if wrapped in foil and stored in a cool, dark and dry place, such as a pantry. Milk and white chocolate have a more limited storage time of no more than eight to 10 months. Hersheys does not recommend putting chocolate in the refrigerator, as doing so can affect texture. 3. Candy corn can endure. This symbol of the season is a durable treat. If left in the original, unopened packaging, candy corn can last a few years. The manufacturer of Smarties says that its candy can last up to three years if unopened. The cooler and drier the conditions for storing the candies, the better. 4. Keep original packaging. The wrappers used to house the candy were designed to keep it fresh. Candy that has been exposed to the elements will degrade faster. When original packaging is unavailable, glass or plastic containers with airtight lids can keep Halloween candy fresher, longer. 5. Manage moisture. Candies like mints, caramels and hard candies can absorb moisture. They should not be mixed with other candies that can lose moisture, such as fudge and creamy confections. The NCA notes that hard candies can stay hard if sprinkled with “ nely ground sugar and storead in airtight containers. 6. Use candy in other ways. If eating chocolate bar after chocolate bar becomes tiresome, repurpose candy in different recipes. Chocolate can rep lace chips or morsels in cookies. Use hard candies to garnish cakes. Melt down caramels to use for ice cream toppings or chop up nutty candies to make your own sundae toppings.

But costs continue to go up. Total Medicaid spending rose 4.2 percent in 2018, same as a year ago, as a result of rising costs for drugs, long-term care and mental health services, according to the study released Thursday by the Kaiser Family Foundation. (Kaiser Health News is an editorially independent program of the foundation.) States expect total Medicaid spending growth to accelerate modestly to 5.3 percent in 2019 as enrollment increases by about 1 percent, according to the annual survey of state Medicaid directors. About 73 million people were enrolled in Medicaid in August, according to a federal report released Wednesday. Medicaid, the statefederal health insurance program for low-income Americans, has seen its rolls soar in the past decade „ initially as a result of massive job losses during the Great Recession and in recent years when dozens of states expanded eligibility using federal “ nancing provided by the Affordable Care Act. Thirty-three states expanded their programs to cover people with incomes under 138 percent of the federal poverty level, or an income of about $16,750 for an individual in 2018. Medicaid spending and enrollment typically rise during economic downturns as more people lose jobs and health bene“ ts. When the economy is humming, Medicaid enrollment ” attens as more people get back to work and can get coverage at work or can afford to buy it on their own. The national unemployment rate was 3.7 percent in September, the lowest since 1969. The falling unemployment rate is the main reason for the drop in Medicaid enrollment, but some states have reduced their rolls by requiring adults and families to verify their eligibility. Arkansas, for example, has cut thousands of people after instituting new steps to con“ rm eligibility. The brightening economic outlook for states has led many to increase bene“ ts to enrollees and payment rates for health providers. A total of 19 states expanded or enhanced covered bene“ ts in “ scal 2018 and 24 states plan to add or enhance bene“ ts for the current “ scal year, which for most states started in July,Ž the Kaiser report said. The most common bene“ t enhancements reported were for mental health and substance abuse services. A handful of states reported expansions related to dental services, telehealth, physical or occupational therapies and home visiting services for pregnant women.Ž A dozen states increased pay to dentists and 18 states added to primary care doctors reimbursements for “ scal year 2019. Medicaid covers about 20 percent of U.S. residents and accounts for nearly one-sixth of health care expenditures. Nearly half of enrollees are children. Overall, the federal government pays about 62 percent of Medicaid costs with states picking up the rest. Poorer states get a higher federal match rate. Seventeen Republicancontrolled states have not expanded Medicaid. For individuals accepted into the program as part of the ACA expansion, the federal government paid the full cost of coverage from 2014 through 2016. It will pay no less than 90 percent thereafter. In 2018, the states share of spending rose 4.9 percent. This was the “ rst full year that states were responsible for part of the cost of the expansion. States expect their spending will grow about 3.5 percent in 2019. Robin Rudowitz, one of the authors of the study and associate director of the Kaiser Program on Medicaid and the Uninsured, said the survey found many states were using Medicaid to address the opioid crisis by expanding bene“ ts for substance disorders and also by implementing tougher restrictions on prescriptions. Almost every governor wants to do something, and Medicaid is generally a large part of it,Ž she said. While the Trump administrations approval of work requirements for some adults on Medicaid has generated controversy over the past year, the report shows that states are making many other changes to the program, such as increasing bene“ ts and changing how it pays providers to get better value.Booming economy helps flatten Medicaid enrollment and limit costs, states report When the economy is humming, Medicaid enrollment flattens as more people get back to work and can get coverage at work or can afford to buy it on their own. The national unemployment rate was 3.7 percent in September, the lowest since 1969.

The group meets the last Wednesday of each month from noon to 1:30 p.m. with lunch provided. Research shows that social support has bene“ ts for cancer patients, those recovering from treatment and their family and loved ones by reducing anxiety and stress, emotional distress and depression, fatigue and the experience of pain while improving mood, self-image, ability to cope with stress and feelings of control. In addition, having a supportive social network can help with recovery and adjusting to life after treatment. The support group allows those experiencing a cancer diagnosis to cope with the emotional aspects by providing a safe place to share their feelings and challenges while allowing people to learn from others facing similar situations. Cancer patients and their family members are encouraged to attend. Active participation is not required, listeners are welcome.

By BENJAMIN ROMANOTHE SEATTLE TIMESSEATTLE „ Starbucks will heavily subsidize up to 10 days a year of backup child care and senior care for its more than 180,000 U.S. employees, the company said Tuesday. The new bene“t works like this: If an employees child care plans fall through „ a child has to stay home sick or school is canceled, for example „ a Starbucks employee can take their child to a day care center for $5 a day, or hire an in-home care provider for $1 an hour. Starbucks will pick up the rest of the cost. While Starbucks isnt disclosing the expected cost of the backup care bene“t, available effective Tuesday, it is part of a package of pay raises and new perks that the company said in January would have an estimated “rst-year cost of $250 million „ or about $1,390 per employee. The new bene“t represents another advance in Starbucks 30-year commitment to offering above-market compensation, said Ron Crawford, Starbucks vice president of bene“ts. Other new bene“ts include enhancements to Starbucks parental leave policy, a sick-leave pay policy that adheres to Washington states new rules taking effect next year, and a pay increase and stock grant in April. The company had previously implemented a broad employee assistance program with things like mental health care coverage. We view this as being a fourth element of a broader partner and family support program,Ž Crawford said. The backup care plan is offered through a partnership with Care. com, a marketplace for a wide range of care providers and in-home services, to which all U.S. employees will be given an annual membership, which normally costs $147. The bene“t is a recognition that families with two working parents are in a precarious position in this country, Crawford said. All it takes is a sick kid one day and it throws things off,Ž he said. From Starbucks perspective, the goal is to have employees come to work with fewer worries. It helps them be that much better at their job and serve our customers,Ž he said. Its also another enticement for would-be Starbucks employees in a historically tight U.S. labor market, though Crawford said thats not the primary purpose. He cited incremental improvements the company has made to its bene“ts package, starting in 1988 with health-care coverage, through times of high unemployment and low.Ž All Starbucks employees get 10 subsidized backup care days to use each year. In addition to child care, the backup days can be used to care for a parent or grandparent, hiring in-home help with meal preparation or medication. The bene“t also pays for longer-term senior care planning through That emphasis on parents and not just children echoes a novel bene“t Starbucks provides to its employees in China. Last year, the company began offering critical-illness insurance for the parents of employees there. The company designs its bene“ts to re”ect different support systems from country to country, as well as the needs of Starbucks local employees, Crawford said.Starbucks adds subsidized backup child and senior care to U.S. benefits package TNS PHOTOWhile Starbucks isnt disclosing the expected cost of the new backup care bene“t, available eective Tuesday, it is part of a package of pay raises and new perks that the company said in January would have an estimated “rst-year cost of $250 million. adno=3624495-1 Mission Driven...

Page 2 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018 By MELANIE MASONLOS ANGELES TIMESFONTANA, Calif. „ Looking at a map of California on a projector screen, Johannes Moenius, an economics professor at the University of Redlands, hovered his mouse over the Inland Empire, which glowed with a splotch of red pixels. The colored dots signi“ed how susceptible an area would be to job losses caused by automation. And the alarmbell red that covered Riverside, San Bernardino and Ontario signaled high risk „ roughly 63 percent of tasks performed by workers in the area could be automated in the future. To Moenius, the rise of robots in warehouses, factories and fast-food restaurants presents danger for places like the Inland Empire, where most residents work in logistics and the service industry and just 21 percent of adults have four-year degrees. As technology transforms the nature of work in California, how do people most at risk “nd their way to new jobs? Were facing a major challenge,Ž Moenius said. If we dont do anything, then it will turn into an apocalypse.Ž Whether confronting an increasingly automated labor market or grappling with how the gig economy is reshaping the relationship between companies and their workers, Californias next governor will have to address the changing nature of work. That could mean rethinking how to educate Californians, remaking labor laws or considering major social safety net proposals such as a universal basic income. State government might not be able to control change in the workplace, but it will have to deal with the fallout. The coming years will make or break California,Ž said Eloy Ortiz Oakley, chancellor of the states community college system. If we dont “nd a way to provide the skills and education and training necessary for the majority of Californians,Ž he said, theres going to be a lot more have-nots than we have today.Ž Californias economy is booming. Its 4.2 percent unemployment rate is a record low. But experts warn the states labor market is particularly vulnerable to disruption from widespread automation. We are seeing a pretty high percentage of our workforce in relatively low-paying, low-skilled jobs,Ž said Somjita Mitra, director of the Institute of Applied Economics at the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp. Since the 2007-09 recession, the prospect of getting a well-paying job with just a high school diploma is dim. The challenge in the economy right now is that the kind of jobs that are being created are either at the lowest wages or the very highest wages,Ž Oakley said. The rise of automation has sparked considerable angst among American workers. A 2017 Pew poll found that 72 percent of adults said they were worried about a future where robots and computers can perform human jobs. But theres no consensus on what the future will look like. One 2013 study, which Moenius used to build his analysis, estimated that 47 percent of American jobs were at risk of being automated. A 2016 paper put that “gure at only 9 percent. A study in 2017 posited that 23 percent to 44 percent of work hours in the United States will be automated by 2030 „ particularly in jobs with a high degree of repetition such as machinists, of“ce support and retail sales. But that study also said jobs would be added, especially among care providers such as surgeons, nurses, and construction workers. Arti“cial intelligence „ computers performing tasks typically done by humans „ takes many forms. Computer vision, which allows machines to glean information visually, can be used in agriculture to give crops water and pesticides based on a plants needs. Virtual assistants such as Siri or Alexa are being used in hotels, standing in for concierges or front desk assistants. Self-driving vehicles could upend the countrys transportation and logistics sectors, but its not clear how quickly those cars and trucks will be widely deployed. Depending on who you talk to, thats a couple of years away or 30 years away,Ž said Stephen Baiter, executive director of the Oakland Workforce Development Board. Its one thing for a technological breakthrough to be invented, and its another to see businesses adopt that technology on a large scale. Experts predict that the impact on jobs will not be sudden, but more like a rolling wave. The level of upheaval could vary by region. Moenius research found the Bay Area „ home to Silicon Valley and highly educated workers „ faces relatively low risk of job loss. The threat is higher in Fresno and Orange County. But the area most susceptible to automation in California spans Riverside, San Bernardino and Ontario. According to Moenius, it is the fourth-most vulnerable metropolitan area in the nation, just behind other service-industry-heavy cities such as Las Vegas. During World War II, the Inland Empire city of Fontana was home to Kaiser Steel, the Paci“c Coasts “rst steel mill, and was a crucial cog in the states vast shipbuilding industry. But the steel jobs had withered by the 1980s „ Fontana, like the rest of the region, became a bedroom community outside Los Angeles. It clawed its way back from the recession due in large part to warehouse and logistics jobs, and the service industry. Now, on the campus of California Steel Industries Inc., the successor to Kaiser Steel, the Inland Empire is trying to reinvent itself again. The Chaffey College Industrial Technical Learning Center, or InTech, is touted as the “rst public-private partnership in the state community college system. Originally envisioned as a place where companies could train workers for more advanced jobs, the programs participants are now primarily unemployed or underemployed workers. Training programs range from basic construction to more advanced skills like computer numerical control, which enables automated operation of machines. The center is run by local community colleges, but participants dont earn college credits. Instead, they receive certi“cations based on input from local industry partners. Everything we do is designed by industry, for industry,Ž said Sandra Sisco, the centers director. For employers who need workers trained in HVAC repair, InTech teaches that. For companies that need employees skilled in additive manufacturing, or 3-D printing, InTech teaches that, too. Joanna Farias, 23, attended InTech two years ago for an electrical boot-camp class. Now, in addition to her aerospace engineering studies at Cal Poly Pomona and her internship at NASAs Jet Propulsion Laboratory, shes returned to teach 2D and 3D design. And she wont rule out returning as a student to pick up a new skill. You have to keep coming back to centers like these to get training and get updated,Ž she said. Training centers and community colleges are likely to be the front-line defense against a changing labor landscape. Since 2014, the community college system has received more than $240 million a year for career and technical education to prepare students for jobs. Last year, an online-only community college was created for working adults who want to learn new skills. Educators at traditional schools resisted. Generally speaking, our academic institutions feel reluctant to place a high value on employability. Traditionally, our attitude has been: We prepare students to be better citizens, deeper thinkers,Ž said Oakley, the community college chancellor. Thats all very true. But we have also become a proxy for employability, so we have to realize much more acutely the importance of job preparation in our curriculum.Ž Much of the attention has centered on a gulf in the labor market. Companies continue to seek workers with college degrees. But in California, 8 million workers between ages 24 to 62 ended their studies in high school. To close that gap, some advocate more emphasis on certificates and other types of credentials that show a workers speci“c skills. We should focus on what an employee can do, not just their background or pedigree or educational attainment,Ž said David Marsh, who manages the Rework America Task Force at the Markle Foundation. Others fear that deemphasizing degrees could exacerbate inequality. You end up stratifying your workforce,Ž said Lande Ajose, executive director of California The rise of the machines: Automation reshapes job market TNS PHOTOJoanna Farias, 23, instructor at InTech Center works on a 3-D printer on Oct. 2, 2018 in Fontana, Calif.

The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018 E/N/C Page 9 Competes, a higher-education advocacy group. You end up with people who have wealth or privilege who continue to get four-year degrees, and everyone else ends up with some kind of degree that is less than that.Ž Education is usually seen as an issue for young people. But in a recent facilities maintenance class at InTech, the students ranged from early the 20s to mid-50s, showing how mid-career workers also need places to learn. Its a really vexing problem „ what do you do with that existing workforce where the occupations that are in demand are changing all around them?Ž said Kish Rajan, former leader of the Governors Of“ce of Business and Economic Development. Theyre going to need new training, new skill-set development to be competitive.Ž Chris McGarry, chief administrative of“cer of the Save Mart grocery company, said his business has never considered technology as a means to strip out labor.Ž But he does envision redeploying those who work at cash registers and in stockrooms, where technology can help trim costs, to positions that interact with customers, which he considers a necessity to compete with online retailers like Amazon. com. For the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, which represents grocery clerks, that means “guring out a way to move cashiers to other parts of stores, such as butcher counters and prepared-food sections. The union is looking to apprenticeships, which have long been favored by construction and “re“ghters unions, as a training pipeline; a new law will expand apprenticeship to “elds such as health care, retail and cannabis. California has had some success in creating new work opportunities through its Employment Training Panel, which gives companies funding to train workers in more advanced skills. Businesses are paid only if workers are employed for at least three months after training, among other performance requirements. The program, which awarded about $100 million in contracts this year, is funded through a tax on employers thats remained at the same rate since 1983. We have more demand than we have funding,Ž said Stewart Knox, the panels executive director.MACHINESFROM PAGE 2 Fishing For A New Career?

The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018 E/N/C Page 11By CARRIE MASONDRAFFENNEWSDAY (TNS)DEAR CARRIE: My husband works as a supervisor for a local utility on Long Island. For years whenever he had to attend a staff meeting, he would go in to work early or stay late and get paid to attend the meetings. He was paid straight time. His new manager, in an effort to stop paying the supervisors, has made the meetings mandatory and requires supervisors to attend or call in on their own time „ even on their days off. Weve checked the companys humanresource section on its website and cannot “nd anything related to this so-called requirement. Is this policy legal or has this manager gone beyond her authority? I dont want my husband to get into trouble at work, but I believe he needs to speak up. He and his co-workers are afraid to contact human resources about the issue because they fear reprisals from the manager. Should they go to human resources anyway? „Whose Time? DEAR WHOSE: Whether your husband has to be paid for attending the meetings depends on his status. If he is an hourly worker, in other words nonexempt, he must be paid for all the time he works and that includes meetings. The only exceptions to the rule are gatherings that meet all four of these criteria outlined in a U.S. Labor Department fact sheet on the topic: They are held outside of normal hours; they are voluntary; they are unrelated to the job, and company tasks arent performed. Clearly the meetings your husband has to attend arent voluntary. So if he is hourly, he has to be paid for that time and must be paid overtime if the extra hours mean he works more than 40 hours a week. On the other hand, if he is a manager, he wouldnt have to be paid for any extra time. A company cant declare someone a manager willy-nilly. That person has to manage at least two full-time employees and most of his or her work must involve managing, among other requirements. So your husband needs to clarify his status. And for that he should call the U.S. Labor Department at 516-338-1890 for more information. If it turns out he should be paid for attending the mandatory meetings, then armed with that information, he should talk to the manager. If that doesnt work, he should go to human resources and make his case politely, but “rmly. Of course, the new manager could have prevented the frustration your husband and his colleagues feel by giving them the legal reason why the meeting time can be considered unpaid, if that is the case. That might have gone a long way in allaying their concerns. DEAR CARRIE: I am writing on behalf of my friend. He works for a major copier repair company. He was told after he was hired that he cannot take a full week off for his vacation because he is considered an essential employee, and that if he did take a week off it would cause a major gap in service. He has been told that he can take a day here, a day there only. I believe that this is illegal, especially since he was not told before he was hired about the companys vacation policy. Is there anything that he can do? „Vacation Concern DEAR VACATION: This is what New York state labor law says on the topic: Every employer shall notify his employees in writing or by publicly posting the employers policy on sick leave, vacation, personal leave, holidays and hours.Ž It doesnt say prospective employees,Ž but employees .Ž In other words, employers have to advise employeesŽ ahead of time of the company vacation policy. And it seems that happened with your friend. Now, that may not sound fair. But it sounds legal.Help Wanted: Supervisor balks at mandatory, unpaid meetings but is afraid to speak up By MARIE G. MCINTYRETRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE (TNS)Q: In our department, there is someone called a team leadŽ who is causing me problems. KimberlyŽ is not my supervisor, but she constantly reviews my work and often makes changes. Sometimes she contradicts the directions given by our manager. Although I dont dislike Kimberly, Im tired of her trying to supervise me. I wish she would just back off and stop giving me orders. Since our manager seems to support Kimberly, I havent mentioned this to him. However, Ive considered talking with our vice president. Do you think that would help? A: While Kimberlys leadership role might have gone to her head, its also possible that she is simply doing her job. Unfortunately, the position of team lead is often poorly de“ned, so employees can easily be confused about their responsibilities. In the absence of a formal job description, the duties of a team lead are typically determined by the manager, who is also responsible for explaining their role to employees. Since Kimberlys level of authority should be delegated by your boss, he either approves of her actions or is not supervising her properly. Instead of escalating your concerns to upper management, which would not be appreciated by either Kimberly or your manager, try asking him for a speci“c de“nition of her job. Just remember that your objective is to clarify, not complain. For example: Im somewhat confused about Kimberlys supervisory responsibilities. Can you help me understand exactly what a team lead is supposed to do?Ž If your bosss description matches Kimberlys behavior, adjust your expectations accordingly. If not, make some reasonable inquiries about her duties. Is Kimberly supposed to be revising your work? What should you do when her instructions con”ict with his? Then politely suggest that perhaps it would be helpful to share this information with everyone. Q: While I was out on leave for three weeks, my manager went through my desk and discarded all the handwritten notes that I use to do my work on the computer. I rely on these notes heavily, so I think he may be trying to sabotage me. He also threw away my personal coffee cup. Is this even legal? A: Returning from a lengthy leave to “nd your possessions missing would be quite disturbing, so I certainly understand how you feel. Even if your boss had some justification for his intrusive actions, he should have waited to discuss those concerns with you. Not being a lawyer, I cant offer a legal opinion, but I do have some relevant questions. First, could there be a work-related reason why your manager removed the notes? For example, are you expected to know how to use this computer without assistance? Does consulting notes cause you to be slower or less productive than other employees? Has anyone in management previously expressed concern about this? Another question is whether you might have a legal expectation of privacy in this workspace. That would depend on several factors which could be explored by an attorney specializing in employment law. As for the confiscated coffee cup, if it was unwashed and moldy, youre better off without it. Otherwise, that was completely inappropriate.Your Office Coach: Team lead is rubbing colleague the wrong wayJOBS Meet Robin Jenkins DVM of Peace River Wildlife Center.

THE NEWS WIRESTATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS Mexico torn between stopping, aiding migrant caravanSee Page 8 Sunday, October 28, 2018 By CATHERINE LUCEYASSOCIATED PRESSMURPHYSBORO, Ill. „ President Donald Trump mourned the dead and forcefully condemned anti-Semitism Saturday after a mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that left 11 dead. But faced with another national tragedy, he could not long turn his focus away from the midterm elections or himself. Nine days from elections that will determine the control of Congress, Trump stuck to his plans to appear at an agricultural convention and a political rally. Throughout the day, he expressed sorrow, called for justice and bemoaned hate, getting regular updates on the shooting. But he also campaigned for candidates, took shots at favorite Democratic targets House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Elizabeth Warren and made jokes about his hair. At a massive rally in southern Illinois for U.S. Rep. Mike Bost, Trump condemned the shooting as an evil anti-Semitic attack.Ž But he said cancelling his appearance would make sick, demented people important.Ž The slaughter at a baby-naming ceremony followed a tense week dominated by a mail bomb plot with apparent political motivations and served as another toxic reminder of a divided nation. It also again underscored Trumps reluctance to step into the role of national uni“er at tense moments as well as his singular focus heading into elections that could dramatically change his presidency. Trump sought to Trump calls Pittsburgh synagogue attack evil anti-Semitism AP PHOTOPresident Donald Trump speaks to an overow crowd at a rally at Southern Illinois Airport in Murphysboro, Ill., Saturday.NEW YORK (AP) „ Law-enforcement agencies around the U.S. are deploying extra of“cers at synagogues and Jewish centers in response to a shooting that claimed 11 lives at a Pittsburgh synagogue. Police in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and other cities said Saturday that while they knew of no credible threats against houses of worship in their communities, they were stepping up patrols out of an abundance of caution. Authorities say gunman Robert Bowers opened “re during a service at Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh Saturday morning, killing 11 and wounding six. In New York City, Chief of Department Terence Monahan said of“cers equipped with heavy weapons have been sent to houses of worship throughout the city. The Chicago Police Department said it was providing special attention to synagogues.Police boost patrols at synagogues after Pittsburgh shooting AP PHOTOLaw enforcement ocers check possible entrances to The Tree of Life synagogue where multiple people were killed and others injured in a deadly shooting, Saturday.TRUMP | 4By JOSH MAGNESSMCCLATCHY WASHINGTON BUREAU (TNS)WASHINGTON „ After police say a man stormed into a Pittsburgh synagogue and killed at least 11 people, a social media account with the suspected shooters name began to circulate online. Police have identi“ed the suspect in the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood as 46-year-old Robert Bowers. Six people „ including four police of“cers „ were also reported as injured in the shooting at the place of worship for Jews. As news broke of the shooting, some on social media noted that Bowers had an account on the social media site Gab. Gab describes itself as an ad-free social network for creators who believe in free speech, individual liberty, and the free ”ow of information online. All are welcome.Ž Andrew Torba, founder of Gab, said that he created the website because of the entirely left-leaning Big Social monopoly,Ž Newsweek reported. The site was founded in 2016. Vox reported that the platform has become a virtual gathering place for some members of the alt-right, a movement of white nationalist, anti-Semitic and white supremacist groups. The Gab logo resembles Pepe the frog, a meme that has been adopted by some members of the alt-right, as noted by VICE. But Utsav Sanduja, Gabs Chief Operating Of“cer, told VICE that it is simply looking to protect the free speech of its users. Were very worried about peoples rights,Ž Sanduja told VICE. A lot of political speech is being labeled as hate speech and is simply being wiped off the map.Ž An account with the same name as the suspected shooter contains many disparaging posts about people of Jewish faith, as seen in an archive of the account. The account shared a message that said Jews are waging a propaganda war against Western civilization.Ž The account associated with Bowers also appears to indicate that he was about to attack the synagogue. The “nal message on the account „ sent out Saturday just a few hours before the shooting „ says HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society) likes to bring invaders in that kill our people. I cant sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, Im going in.Ž Gab suspended the account Saturday afternoon, and then, in a post on Medium. com, the social media platform wrote that it unequivocally disavows and condemns all acts of terrorism and violenceŽ and is working with law enforcement. Shortly after the attack, Gab was alerted to a user pro“le of the Suspected synagogue shooters anti-Semitic posts surface online By TERRY SPENCER and ELLIS RUAASSOCIATED PRESSFORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. „ Thirteen years ago, mail bomb suspect Cesar Sayoc traveled the country leading a mixedrace troupe of male exotic dancers „ he ran scams and had a temper, but a fellow dancer who is African-American said he never expressed racism or homophobia. Years later, working as a pizza driver, Sayoc would often express hatred for minorities, Jews and gays, his manager said. He drove a van plastered with stickers supporting President Donald Trump, criticizing media outlets and showing ri”e crosshairs over liberals like Hillary Clinton and “lmmaker Michael Moore. But she kept him around, even though she is a lesbian, because he was honest, dependable and never got into “ghts. Why Sayoc changed so radically over the years remains a mystery, but to those who know him, there seems little question that he did. We were friends, we were boys, we traveled in the same van, slept in the same room,Ž said former dancer David Crosby, who is black. When I think of the guy I knew and the guy I see now on MSNBC, CNN and at Trump rallies, I think, Did he really slip?Ž He thinks Trumps sometimes bombastic criticism of liberals may have pushed Sayoc over the edge. He really wasnt a bad guy,Ž a puzzled Crosby said. But former pizza restaurant manager Debra Gureghian said that while Sayoc originally came across as respectful, articulate and polite, within days a dark side emerged and he told her he was disgusted by her sexuality. I was an abomination, I was Gods mis“t ...

Page 2 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018Dear Mr. Berko: When our father passed away about a year ago, he left my sister and me eight stocks. We have decided to keep the “ve utility stocks and continue reinvesting the dividends each quarter. Please give us advice on keeping or selling the other three „ Cincinnati Financial, Zogenix and Medtronic „ which we know nothing about. „ CC, Jonesboro, Ark. Dear CC: I cant advise you competently because I know nothing about your stock market experiences, risk tolerances, shortand long-term goals, capital and income needs, debts, etc. Cincinnati Financial (CINF-$74.10) markets property and casualty insurance, life and health insurance, and “nancial services through independent insurance agencies around the nation. I graduated from college the year that CINFs CEO, Steve Johnston, was born. CINF has a good portfolio of “nancial products and a stable balance sheet. Its long-term debt is 9 percent of capital. Management has excellent underwriting practices, and pro“t margins are improving nicely. Since 2000, premium income has tripled, and the dividend, now $2.12 and yielding 2.1 percent, has been increased each year and has tripled. And the share price has increased almost sixfold since the Great Recession low of $13. Meanwhile, healthy premium growth from its property/casualty lines and rising policy retention levels should boost 2019 revenues to $5.5 billion, up from $5.3 billion this year, and improve earnings to $3.47 a share, up from $3.20. And the dividend may be increased by 5 percent, to $2.24. CINF is a solidly managed insurance holding company, and the fact that millions of shares are owned by Vanguard, BlackRock, Bank of America, J.P. Morgan and the Royal Bank of Canada is proof of the pudding. But I dont care to own the shares of this large-cap company, primarily because CINF is priced ahead of itself, at 23 times earnings, and also because I doubt that the Bengals will ever win a Super Bowl. Zogenix (ZGNX-$41.21) is one of the innumerable biotechnology “rms that can trade like a bull in a china shop. ZGNX is engaged in the development and commercialization of therapeutic solutions for people living with serious and rare disorders of the central nervous system. One of its products, ZX008, is a low-dose fen”uramine for treatment of Dravet syndrome and LennoxGastaut syndrome, a rare and severe form of epilepsy that commences in childhood. In the past three years, ZGNX has lost nearly $1.5 billion. However, 4 million shares are owned by Perceptive Advisors, a New York hedge fund that has made hundreds of millions of bucks in the past few years taking positions of biotech issues. And Scopia Capital Management, another New York hedge fund specializing in biotech issues, has a 3.4 million-share position. If you can handle well-above-average risk, ZGNX could give you well-above-average long-term gains. But its 52-week price range of $12 to $62 a share suggests that ZGNX could also give you well-above-average longterm losses. There are “ve brokerages covering ZGNX, and each has a buyŽ recommendation on the stock. And I think theres a 71 percent chance that there will be 20 to 25 more points in the stock by late 2019. Founded in 1949 as a medical equipment repair shop, Medtronic (MDT-$96) is now the worlds largest manufacturer and distributor of implantable biomedical devices and sells its products in 160 countries via 372 locations. MDTs 84,000 employees design and market products for diabetes care; ear, nose and throat care; gastrointestinal and neurological disorders; spinal and orthopedic problems; tumor management; urological and urogynecology issues; renal care; cardiovascular problems; and general surgery. Revenues, net income, dividends and new products have nearly tripled during the past 18 years, as has the stock price. And there are many reasons to believe that MDT can do it again. Meanwhile, a retired MDT salesperson gave me two good pieces of advice several years ago: Buy Medtronic stock and hold it forever. And be nice to everyone in the hospital, because you never know whos going to pull out your urinary catheter.Ž Id follow that advice in a heartbeat. Email Malcolm Berko at unknown stocks explained MalcolmBERKOC STATE NEWSBy TAMARA LUSHASSOCIATED PRESSPANAMA CITY, Fla. „ More than two weeks after the powerful eyewall of Hurricane Michael passed over Bay County, Mark Ward wonders when the power will work again. And the sewer. And the water. Weve been living out of coolers. Weve been grilling out.Ž He points to a red cooler and two grills in front of his mobile home. He has to shout to be heard over the buzz of a generator. Although electric, water and sewer service were restored to Panama City residents on Wednesday, those like Ward who live in the rural parts of Bay County still lack basic services. Its a struggle. You feel frustrated because our local government seems to care more about the tourism industry than the hard-working people,Ž says the 49-year-old. You go off some of these dirt roads that are still unpaved, these houses are crushed. These people have no resources.Ž County spokeswoman Valerie Sale says she understands why people in rural areas feel left behind. When you live that far away from a municipal area, theres a feeling of isolation,Ž she said. Theres no question its a challenge to reach those folks. Under normal circumstances it takes 45 minutes to an hour to get to some of those northern parts of the county.Ž Bay County is known for its sugar-sand beaches. Panama City Beach, which made it through relatively unscathed from the storm, is a mecca for spring breakers each year. Mexico Beach, another stunning community on the Gulf of Mexico, was almost obliterated by the storm. Stark, stunning visuals of the destruction there have been a staple of posthurricane news coverage. But the rural folks in Bay County say they feel invisible. About 180,000 people live in the county, and according to the Census, 14 percent of them live in poverty. Wheres the help?Ž asks Ward. Hes one of the lucky ones in the Bayou George neighborhood. He has insurance. His mobile home was mostly spared. He has a generator, and he rigged a hand pump for the well. His next-door neighbors didnt fare as well: Michael stripped their mobile home to a wood skeleton. They clung to debris, but “nally ran for safety to Wards home during the eye of the storm with a cat and her newborn kittens. Ive got seven people in my house right now. Three bedrooms, two baths,Ž said Ward. Theyve been with me since the storm.Ž For the “rst week, he drove across the state line into Alabama for gas to run the generator. Gas has been easier to get locally in recent days, but lines are still long, he said. Because one of the people staying with him has diabetes, her insulin must remain cold, which is why they need to run the generator so much. Wards property beside the road is a tangle of oak trees, twisted metal and downed power lines. Without ”inching, he steps over and under the wires as if they were rope. Just tuck up under here,Ž he says, ducking under a thick power line. Sale, the county spokeswoman, says the Red Cross has roving emergency response vehicles, and a “re station in nearby Bayou George is a distribution point where groups have been dropping household items, food and tarps. Ward says the neighbors have been relying more on each other. He checks in frequently with a group of twentysomething men and women who live across the street in a mobile home on a few acres. Youre good on your MREs?Ž he asked them on a recent day. If you want water, you know where my pump is. Theres also a bathing station there. Bring a washrag. Theres bars of soap.Ž Yeah, Ill probably use that, but my dads got a running creek he said we could go use,Ž said Ronald Lauricella, who owns the mobile home on the property. Their yard is a mishmash of downed limbs, piled-up garbage and two tents. Two dogs and a small kitten roam the property. Lauricella is staying in one tent and keeping food in another. The inside of his mobile home is another explosion of chaos. The front door and his bedroom window were blown out from the hurricanes winds. Water soaked the carpets and drywall. Theres bugs everywhere,Ž he said. It smells. You can smell the mold growing.Ž Lauricella, 19, has no property insurance. Hes in between jobs, and hopes to make it to an interview at a restaurant this week if he can scrape up enough money for gas. He “gures its his only hope to recover from the storm. No ones really sending help our way,Ž Lauricella said.Folks in rural part of Panhandle ask: Wheres the help?

By LAWRENCE MOWER and DAVID SMILEYTAMPA BAY TIMESTALLAHASSEE „ An undercover FBI agent might have paid more than $4,000 in food and drinks for one of Andrew Gillums campaign fundraisers in 2016, according to a new batch of records released Friday. But the contribution in early 2016 does not appear in the records for Gillums political committee, raising new questions less than two weeks before Floridas governors race between Gillum and Republican Ron DeSantis is decided on Nov. 6. The fundraiser for Gillums political committee, Forward Florida, was on April 11, 2016, at the home of Adam Corey, a former lobbyist and a former longtime friend of Gillums, according to an invoice and emails released by Coreys lawyer, Chris Kise. About 40 people who attended the fundraiser were served “let mignons, salmon mousse canaps and cocktails, provided by 101 Restaurant, which was then run by Corey. Emails show Corey billed Mike Miller,Ž who happened to be an undercover FBI agent investigating Tallahassee corruption, for the $4,300 tab. Attached is the invoice for the dinner you graciously offered to sponsor,Ž Corey wrote to Miller “ve days after the fundraiser. As mentioned, it was a bit higher than I expected because of some last minute attendees so let me know what you would like to cover and Ill handle the rest. Again, I really appreciate this!Ž Forward Floridas records do not show the contribution, and its unclear from the records whether Miller, or someone else, ultimately paid for it. Geoff Burgan, a Gillum campaign spokesman said in a statement that Kises decision to release the records was politically motivated, and that Gillum did not receive any contributions or in-kinds from Mike Miller.Ž But an email from Corey to Brice Barnes, a campaign “nance consultant who was helping Gillum at the time, indicates that Gillum was aware of Millers help. Did he connect with Mike Miller to thank him for co-sponsoring the food?Ž Corey asked Barnes. He sent him a personal note,Ž she replied. Reached Friday, Barnes said, I dont have any information other than the email exchange.Ž Juan-Carlos Planas, an elections law attorney and former Republican Miamiarea state Representative, called the lack of reporting a clear violation.Ž Its something that should automatically be sanctioned,Ž he said. Planas said campaigns are often lax about documenting in-kind catering contributions despite the requirements of state law. He said hes a stickler with his clients because its something that can easily be overlooked on “nance reports. Mark Herron, the attorney registered as an agent for Forward Florida when the committee initially opened, did not immediately respond for comment. The latest release of records came from Kise, a Tallahassee attorney who on Tuesday released 150 pages of records, including texts messages and emails between Corey, Gillum and Miller. Those records indicated that undercover agents gave Gillum a ticket to the Broadway musical HamiltonŽ during a trip to New York in 2016, a revelation that has dominated the second-to-last week of Gillums historic run for governor. Gillum cut ties with Corey, his friend since college, last year. But the more than 80 pages of records released Friday led to additional questions about Gillums coziness with the former lobbyist and his clients. Corey either arranged or attended seven trips for Gillum in 2016, including a February trip to Tampa to meet with affordable housing developer Peter Leach, one of Coreys clients, and a two-night trip in Atlanta in July. Fridays records show Leach billed Corey $200 for the round-trip ”ight aboard his companys jet. Gillum paid for his share out of his of“ce account, according to previous reports. While on the trip, Gillum also met with former Gov. Charlie Crist, who was running for Congress, and former Chief Financial Of“cer Alex Sink. The mayor was invited by Peter Leach to a meeting at his of“ce to learn about some of the work he was doing to advance wraparound social services in schools and housing developments,Ž Gillums chief of staff, Jamie Van Pelt, told the Tallahassee Democrat last year. While visiting Tampa the mayor also met with local political leaders before returning to Tallahassee.Ž The purpose of the Atlanta trip is unknown. The records include emails with Gillum asking Corey to upgrade his room at a Westin hotel, but they do not show who ultimately paid the bill. Kise said Friday that Gillum did not reimburse Corey. Mayor Gillum did not pay Corey for those hotel rooms,Ž he said. You will have to ask him for his credit card records to determine whether he paid for them himself.Ž Kise, has been compiling the records in response to a Florida Commission on Ethics probe looking into whether Gillum accepted gifts worth more than $100 without disclosing them during the New York trip and a trip to Costa Rica. The complaint was “led this year by Tallahassee businessman Erwin Jackson, a longtime Gillum critic. On Thursday, Jackson said he had asked the ethics commission to include the Tampa trip in his complaint.New Gillum documents show FBI agent might have paid for fundraiser dinner WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.

The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018 E/N/C Page 3By RJ WOLCOTTLANSING STATE JOURNALLANSING, Mich. „ Forty-eight years after leaving Eastern High School to join the United States Navy, Dann Huisken recently received his diploma. In 1970, the nowretired chief petty officer was an 18-year-old senior at Eastern who decided to enlist in the midst of the Vietnam War. I knew I needed structure and to get away,Ž Huisken, 66, told the Lansing State Journal. The Navy was the perfect opportunity.Ž He first moved to Lansing in fourth grade, attending Forest View Elementary, West and Water French junior high schools en route to Eastern. His mother wouldnt let him join the United States Army. She did, however, allow him to enlist in the U.S. Navy. She liked their uniforms,Ž Huisken said moments before he was awarded his high school diploma by the districts Board of Education. Under Michigan law, honorably discharged veterans of World War II, Korea, or Vietnam can obtain their high school diplomas if they enlisted or were drafted before they could do so. After enlisting, Huisken headed to Detroit for a battery of tests and was made a radioman after acing a communications test. Huisken volunteered to go to San Diego for boot camp. His first posting in the Navy was in the Philippines, where he stayed for 18 months. He was assigned to the aircraft carrier USS Constellation in 1973, which was stationed off the coast of Vietnam. Later, after undergoing shoulder surgery, Huisken was stationed on the Greek island of Crete as well as in Nevada. He was honorably discharged from the Navy in 1980 after a decade of active service. He followed that with 16 years in the Navy Reserve. Before leaving active duty, Huisken applied for and received his GED. But he still wanted that h igh school diploma from his former school.By KSENIA GORINSHTEYNMINNESOTA DAILYMINNEAPOLIS „ With blank pages in front of them, participants sat at tables organized in a tight, intimate circle. Observing the different charcoal tools available to them, they listened to the artist describe their various uses. Dont eat the charcoal,Ž said Caytlin Neuburger, a University of Minnesota senior studying communications and studio art with a focus on illustration. Its not meant to be ingested, but as long as you arent eating giant bags of it you should be good.Ž TransFabulous workshops create a space for trans youth „ though all are welcome „ to express themselves through different artistic mediums while connecting the Twin Cities transgender community. This months workshop presented charcoal as an artistic outlet, Minnesota Daily reported. What began as a summer series at several Hennepin County Library branches has grown into a monthly workshop at the Minneapolis Central Library. The workshops feature a different artist and medium every month, focusing on trans and gender nonconforming artists. Its a way for a group that doesnt have a lot of programming offered to say the library is for you,Ž said Ray Lockman, a librarian at the Minneapolis Central Library and one of three project managers for TransFabulous. Thats been a really cool thing to watch as people stop by for one and it kind of transforms their feeling of belonging.Ž The workshop gives the artist freedom to teach the medium in their own style. Neuburger led the night with casual conversation and encouraging suggestions that allowed each participant to explore charcoal as a form of their own. (Charcoal is) a forgiving medium, but also a little delicate,Ž Neuburger explained. The inspiration for the night was a still-life set-up in the middle of the room that included a mirror, a pride ”ag and a bouquet of lavender in a teapot, among additional objects. Each workshop attendee began their still-life drawing differently. Some started with small details, like individual lavender buds, and others started with larger shapes and “gures that would be “lled with “ne details later. Art is very much a community-driven sort of activity,Ž Neuburger said. If people do want to bring some heavier emotions into art then its a great way to express that in a way where you can get feedback.Ž The community curators try to organize the workshops so that one months medium isnt similar to the next. This allows attendees to explore several artistic skills and “nd the one that resonates most. Im just blown away by peoples creativity and their ability to take on an entire workshop and lead as well,Ž said Chase Underwood, a university junior studying family social science. Underwood attended a zine workshop two years ago and is now a TransFabulous community curator. TransFabulous is a space for trans youth to meet other trans people in the community and to express emotions and issues that may otherwise be dif“cult to convey. I think that art is a way for trans people to feel resilience in a lot of ways,Ž Underwood said. It can be really healing being able to focus on your identity. Its another way for us to create our own representation.ŽNATIONAL NEWS ANSWER TO CROSSWORD FIBBERLIBIDOSTRAP AMARNAUNITARDSCHAFE KIBITZCROSSBOWRETRO ENYAOAKENHIDEARSON SNARKYICETDOME OTTERABACUSMENSSHOP WRENCHRESTVINETORY LIPOUBEREGADASHLAR SOSALLACARDIBLEDTO EBOOKUSAUSAARIES NOLITABRATZDONUTS BALEDTHEFBIPARTB LEDGESAVEUSUSESJIF INVADENEWTAPSOTATA GAINABELTRIPSEIZED HECTARESTOILETSEZME LUSHPUNTTWITCH ARBYSEGANEPSONLAMP LEAPSSANDRAOHEMINOR ENNUITHEREIGOPOPDUO STATEMADDOWTOSSEDMichigan veteran receives high school diploma after 48 yearsMinnesota workshops provide space for transgender youth AP PHOTOIn this Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2018 photo, University of Minnesota senior Caytlin Neuburger teaches an art class at Central Library in downtown Minneapolis.

By MARTHA QUILLINTHE NEWS & OBSERVERWASHINGTON, N.C. „ A cast of political and legal adversaries met in a Beaufort County courtroom Friday to argue the guilt or innocence of the notorious pirate Blackbeard, 300 years after he was killed in a battle in the waters off North Carolinas Ocracoke Island. It was a mock court, but the evidence presented came straight from the historical record, and the questions were real. Was Blackbeard a stone-cold criminal who treasonously slaughtered King George Is men aboard their ship that November day in 1718? Or was he the victim of an unlawful ambush “ghting in selfdefense against a crew of men he had no way of knowing represented the royal crown? We are speci“cally interested in whether it was lawful and proper for the colony of Virginia to dispatch armed forces into their neighboring colony of North Carolina in order to capture or kill suspected pirates operating out of the ports of Bath and Ocracoke,Ž real-life Superior Court Judge J. Carlton Cole told the courtroom. Over the course of the next two hours, nearly 100 observers, including dozens of local school students and some county residents who may claim descendancy from some of Blackbeards former crew members, listened as present-day Beaufort County District Attorney Seth Edwards faced off against business and probate attorney J. Erik Groves of Waxhaw. Edwards represented a powder-wigged Virginia Lt. Gov. Alexander Spotswood, portrayed by Dennis Loba of Virginia. It was Spotswood who personally “nanced the hiring of a pair of private vessels and crew to make a foray into the waters off North Carolina to “nd and either kill or capture Blackbeard and his piratical associates. Groves represented Blackbeard, portrayed in villainous splendor by Carl Cannon of Beaufort. Having been slain and beheaded during the skirmish in 1718, Blackbeard did not take the stand in his defense at Fridays proceedings.Legend vs. truthThe event was one of many in coastal N.C. communities this year that have commemorated the 300th anniversary of Blackbeards demise, some more scholarly than others. This one was organized and scripted by N.C. historian, author and “lmmaker Kevin Duffus, who has spent thousands of hours “nding and studying primary-source documents to try and sort Blackbeardian legend from truth. As costumed players noted in courtŽ using details Duffus has gleaned from his years of research, Blackbeard „ whose non-pirate name likely was Edward Thatch and who may have been born Edward Beard in Beaufort County „ has been the subject of much conjecture and exaggeration, some of it his own. Blackbeard is said to have cultivated a fearsome reputation during his two years as a professional pirate, but that may have been a way to prevent violence rather than to promote it. If other ship captains believed he might kill them, the theory goes, they might have been more likely to give up their cargo without a “ght. Through testimonyŽ on Friday, Duffus showed that the lieutenant governor of Virginia might have used Blackbeards notoriety to justify sending armed forces into North Carolina, when what he may really have wanted was to embarrass thenGov. Charles Eden and possibly seize Blackbeards rumored piles of treasure. As Duffus asserted Friday, the 1700s were dif“cult economic times for colonial governments and their people, both of whom may have been willing to take what didnt belong to them in order to survive. Even George I was willing to overlook a bit of plundering. He issued a pardon for pirates, which North Carolina extended to Blackbeard and his men though they did not technically qualify for it, having committed additional crimes after the cutoff date it speci“ed. George issued a second, more lenient pardon that almost certainly would have exonerated Blackbeard and his men if they had lived to see it arrive by ship from England.What happened on that day in 1718?Role-players at Fridays hearing suggested Blackbeard might have been getting out of the pirate business in 1718. He may have intentionally run his ”agship, the Queen Annes Revenge, aground near Beaufort Inlet off present-day Atlantic Beach, forcing the immediate layoff of most of his 300 men. He later traveled with a smaller group to Ocracoke, and was there in November when Spotswoods hired guns found him. Accounts of the day report that when he saw the ships approach him, Blackbeard called to ask who they were and where they were from. The leader of the mission, Lt. Robert Maynard, played Friday by John Collamore of Virginia, told him they werent pirates, and that they were coming for him. Spotswood had hired the men under the authority of a general proclamation by the king to go after pirates, but he had no speci“c charge from George I to pursue Blackbeard. Spotswood, not the Royal Navy, paid the men, whose personal boats had no insignia of the Royal Navy. At the time, the Royal Navy had no uniforms, so the men wore clothing of the day. Spotswood indicated the ship had a ”ag, likely the Union Jack, but the weather was so still that day that the ships to be pulled by row boats, so the ”ag likely was hanging limp. Under the circumstances, Duffus postulated, Blackbeard probably thought he was being attacked by disgruntled former employees or South Carolinians looking for revenge over his earlier blockade of their Charleston port.Whats the verdict?For his part, Spotswood argued through his living history actor, he viewed it as his duty to go after Blackbeard because Gov. Eden not only tolerated the pirate, but was in cahoots with him. The exercise had no effect on Blackbeards legal standing. But in Duffus view, it wasnt Blackbeard who was on trial Friday, but popularized history, which sometimes lacks context and often overlooks facts. The evidence is overwhelming,Ž Duffus said afterward, that Blackbeard wasnt such a bad guy.ŽBlackbeard the pirate goes on trial in NC courtroom AP PHOTONorth Carolina historian and author Kevin Duffus wrote the script for a mock trail of Bluebeard the pirate in Washington, N.C., based on documents found in courthouses and archives.

In 1858 Rowland Hussey Macy opened his first New York store at Sixth Avenue and 14th Street in Manhattan. In 1886 the Statue of Liberty, a gift from the people of France, was dedicated in New York Harbor by President Grover Cleveland. In 1922 fascism came to Italy as Benito Mussolini took control of the government. In 1936 President Franklin D. Roosevelt rededicated the Statue of Liberty on its 50th anniversary. In 1940 Italy invaded Greece during World War II. In 1958 the Roman Catholic patriarch of Venice, Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli, was elected Pope; he took the name John XXIII. The Samuel Beckett play Krapps Last TapeŽ premiered in London. In 1965 Pope Paul VI issued a Declaration on the Relation of the Church with Non-Christian Religions which, among other things, absolved Jews of collective guilt for the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. In 1976 former Nixon aide John D. Ehrlichman entered a federal prison camp in Safford, Arizona, to begin serving his sentence for Watergate-related convictions (he was released in April 1978).

To bolster his argument for sticking with the rally, Trump argued that the New York Stock Exchange was opened the day after 9/11, though in fact it was reopened on September 17. Speaking to a massive, cheering crowd at an airport hangar in southern Illinois, Trump said the hearts of all Americans are filled with grief, following the monstrous killing.Ž He told reporters before the rally that he would travel to Pittsburgh, though he did not offer details. He also sought to distance himself from the man arrested in the shooting, calling him sickŽ and saying he was no supporter of mine.Ž Trump promised to change his tone for the Saturday night rally given the events of the day. While he avoided some of his most fiery rhetoric, he still targeted Pelosi and Democrats and the crowd gleefully shouted lock her up,Ž in reference to Hillary Clinton, one of the targets of the bomb plot. Continuing to emphasize his hardline immigration rhetoric, Trump said: Republicans want strong borders, no crime, and no caravans.Ž Trumps speech to a convention of the Future Farmers of America had all the hallmarks of a Trump rally, as the president riffed on trade, jobs and some of his political enemies. At one point he also joked about his hair. He said it was ruffled by the rain as he left Washington, adding I said, maybe I should cancel this arrangement because I have a bad hair day.Ž Trump offered an unsparing denunciation of anti-Semitism, which he said was the motive behind the attack, in contrast to remarks after clashes between white supremacists and counterprotesters in Charlottesville last year. Then, he only in”amed tensions by blaming both sides for the violence. Speaking to young farmers in Indianapolis, Trump called on the country to come together, before inviting a pastor and rabbi on stage to pray. Earlier in the day, Trump speculated that the death toll in Pittsburgh would have been curbed if an armed guard had been in the building. With both the number of deaths and details of the synagogues security still to be disclosed, Trump said gun control has little to do with itŽ but if they had protection inside, the results would have been far better.Ž But the attack did not persuade him that tighter gun controls are needed. This is a case whe re, if they had an armed guard inside, they might have been able to stop him immediately,Ž Trump said. Maybe there would have been nobody killed, except for him, frankly. So its a very, very „ a very difficult situation.Ž In previous mass shootings, Trump has at times said he would consider tightening gun laws but in the main has called for more armed guards in places such as schools. The world is a violent world,Ž he said before his speech. And you think when youre over it, it just sort of goes away, but then it comes back in the form of a madman, a wacko. ... They had a maniac walk in and they didnt have any protection and that is just so sad to see, so sad to see.Ž Trump said lawmakers should very much bring the death penalty into vogueŽ and people who kill in places such as synagogues and churches really should suffer the ultimate price.ŽTRUMPFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOA man holds his head as he is escorted out of the Tree of Life Congregation by police following a shooting at the Pittsburg synagogue, Saturday. alleged Tree of Life Synagogue shooter,Ž the statement read. The account was veri“ed and matched the name of the alleged shooters name, which was mentioned on police scanners.

Sayoc thought she should burn in hell with Ellen DeGeneres and Rachel Maddow... and President Obama and Hillary Clinton.Ž Sayoc, 56, was arrested Friday near Fort Lauderdale and is charged federally with mailing at least 13 mail bombs to prominent Democrats and other frequent targets of conservative ire, including former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and the cable network CNN. He is scheduled to make his “rst court appearance Monday. That radicalism is a stark contrast to the mid-2000s, when Sayoc managed and performed with two male-dance revues „ Men of SteelŽ and American Hunks.Ž He never expressed political views back then, Crosby said. I dont know if he was a Democrat or Republican,Ž said Crosby, who now runs a gym and is a comedian near Minneapolis. Along with three or four other chiseled men, Crosby and Sayoc traveled the country by van, stripping to G-strings for screaming women in honkytonks and nightclubs. They would check into a motel, perform, bring women back to party, sleep a few hours and then get up early the next morning to drive several hours to the next gig. Its a hard life,Ž Crosby said, quite seriously. The partying, bad food and lack of exercise takes a toll, he said. Sayoc hosted, then danced last. Crosby said he and the other all-but-naked dancers would bring women up on stage, make them and their friends laugh and do some sexual innuendo „ except Sayoc, who wasnt a good performer. He said Sayoc would have women sit in a chair, get between their legs and drive his pelvis into theirs hard „ bang, bang.Ž The chair is bouncing off the wall, their head is bouncing off the wall,Ž Crosby said. Sometimes, he would bite the womens exposed skin hard enough to leave teeth marks. Crosby said women would complain to the other dancers that Sayoc was too rough, but no one ever called the police. He said Sayoc had a zero to 100Ž temper and would sometimes use his 6-foot, 250-pound frame to intimidate other men. If he wasnt happy about something, he would de“nitely let you know,Ž Crosby said. Still, he never saw Sayoc hit anyone and he treated his employees well „ though he would sometimes scam the shows “nancial backers. For example, Crosby said Sayoc would sometimes drive separately in his own older van, though not the now infamous one he was arrested with. He would then take parts from the troupes newer van, which was owned by an investor, and swap them with dying parts from his clunker, Crosby said. Sayoc would then ask the investor to pay for the troupe vans now-needed repairs. Twelve years later, however, when Sayoc worked for Gureghian at New River Pizza in Fort Lauderdale, honesty and reliability were his job-saving attributes. He never stole and customers never complained, Gureghian said. But until he quit earlier this year, he regularly subjected co-workers to “ery political rants. Gureghian called his views pure hatred.Ž He detested liberals, blacks, Jews and especially gays, who he called slurs, Gureghian said. Gureghian said Sayoc used his van for deliveries and one rainy night he offered her a ride home. The “rst thing I did was kind of look to make sure „ God forbid „ if something happened, can I open that door to get out and how do tuck and roll?Ž she said. Sayoc lived in the van and Gureghian said it was a mess. There were empty containers from fast-food restaurants, mens “tness supplements and alcoholic beverages. Dirty clothes were everywhere. And, ominously, there were dolls with their heads cut off. He told me he was “xing them for his two nieces,Ž Gureghian said.PERSONALITYFROM PAGE 1 CESAR SAYOC By JAY WEAVERMIAMI HERALD (TNS)MIAMI „ The quick arrest of a homeless man living in his van on charges of sending more than a dozen mail bombs to notable Democrats around the country may have signaled the climax of a massive federal investigation during the past week „ but its far from over. Federal agents are still searching for other possible suspects in South Florida who may have helped Cesar Sayoc, the former stripper and self-described entertainment promoter who was arrested Friday at an auto parts store in Plantation. Friday night, FBI agents questioned a person at a Broward County residence with a potential connection to Sayoc, but nothing came of the interview, according to law enforcement sources familiar with the probe. Investigators are also analyzing Sayocs impounded van in which he lived and allegedly built the pipe bombs because it contains a trove of valuable evidence, from explosive-device materials to credit-card receipts. They say the vehicle, covered with attacks on critics of President Donald Trump, directly links the 56-year-old Aventura man to the crime of mailing explosive devices from South Florida to the Democratic targets. Among them: former President Barack Obama, former Democratic presidential Hillary Clinton, actor Robert De Niro and billionaire “nancier and political megadonor George Soros. According to sources, Sayoc told FBI agents and other authorities during a brief interview at the bureaus South Florida “eld of“ce in Miramar that he never meant to hurt any of the intended targets „ though the FBIs director later said the pipe bombs were not hoax devices.Ž Sayoc eventually clammed up, invoking his Miranda rights and asking to speak with a lawyer. Despite allegedly committing practically the entire mail-bombing campaign from South Florida, Sayoc will be whisked away to New York after appearing in federal court in Miami for a removal hearing on Monday. He will be prosecuted by the U.S. Attorneys Of“ce in the Southern District of New York, based on evidence that at least “ve of the 14 packages were sent to that area, including CNNs of“ces in Manhattan. Many criminal and legal experts in South Florida called the New York U.S. Attorney Of“ces takeover of the case a classic power grabŽ of a national case that really belongs in South Florida. One former federal prosecutor said Miamis new U.S. attorney, Ariana Fajardo Orshan, got a dose of the SDNY.Ž During a Friday news conference at the Justice Department in Washington, D.C., Fajardo was conspicuously absent from the stage of senior of“cials, which included Attorney General Jeff Sessions, FBI Director Christopher Wray and the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, Geoffrey Berman. Wray credited the phenomenal workŽ of federal agents and FBI lab experts along with state and local police in New York, the Washington, D.C., area, Delaware, Florida and California, where authorities say the bomb-“lled manila envelopes were sent by Sayoc since Oct. 18. All of the packages, which had the return address of the congressional of“ce of U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, were routed through a U.S. Postal Service mail sorting facility in Opa-locka. A trail of telltale clues helped investigators quickly focus the nationwide manhunt on Sayoc. Among the connections: a latent “ngerprint on an envelope sent to California Rep. Maxine Waters along with DNA residue on two devices sent to Waters and Obama. They matched with DNA records kept by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement that were collected from Sayoc in previous state criminal cases. Wray thanked FDLE for their very quick workŽ in helping make the DNA connection before Sayocs arrest Friday morning. We do believe that weve caught the right person,Ž he said. Once I knew they (the FBI) had a print, I was pretty con“dent wed be able to “nd the right person.Ž Agents also scrutinized Sayocs voluminous social media posts, his cellphone records and his movements throughout South Florida to link him to the threats against Democratic targets. Sources told the Miami Herald that those database searches did not reveal evidence that Sayoc was in”uenced by any terrorist organizations, including Islamic State. The notorious Middle Eastern terrorist groups propaganda has been posted on social media of several convicted felons who attempted to carry out past bombings in South Florida. Wray would not say if there might be other potential suspects associated with the packages, citing the ongoing investigation. Sayoc, who is being held at the federal detention center in downtown Miami, was arrested on a criminal complaint on charges of interstate transportation of an explosive, illegal mailing of explosives, threats against a former president and other high-ranking former government of“cials, threatening interstate communications and assaulting federal of“cers. The “ve charges carry a potential 58 years in total prison time if Sayoc is convicted, Sessions said.Feds widen search for others who may have helped Florida mail-bomb suspect

While a stock slide of more than 40 percent over that period seems to imply that some aspect of the business went off the rails, the more likely explanation is far less entertaining: The company has simply posted some earnings per share (EPS) numbers in past quarters that didnt meet analyst expectations. That doesnt mean the business is struggling. In fact, secondquarter 2018 revenue jumped 14 percent, and net income soared 26 percent compared to the year-ago period. Its true that Owens Corning has experienced higher-thanexpected material costs, which dragged down gross profit margin in the first six months of the year. But the temporary headwinds dont justify how the shares have been punished. That has created an intriguing opportunity for long-term investors. Owens Corning stock is now looking undervalued, with a forwardlooking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio recently well below 10. The tumbling share price has also nearly doubled the dividend yield, recently at 1.7 percent. (The dividend payout has increased by an annual average of 7 percent over the past four years, too, and has plenty of room to grow more.) With management expecting an eventual rebound in material purchasing prices, Owens Corning deserves a closer look. Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentUnder Armour LossesMy dumbest investment by far has been shares of Under Armour. I saw the companys logo everywhere, which seemed promising. I bought shares three times in about five months „ after it would drop, Id buy more. I stopped after the bad quarters started to stack up, and finally sold most of it to take a tax loss this year. I put the proceeds into my favorite stock, Apple. The lesson I learned is that I prefer stocks that pay dividends. Dividends keep paying you, even if you have to wait for a company to turn its fortunes around. Dividends also let you engage in dollar-cost averaging, reinvesting your dividends into additional shares of stock. Im much happier now with Apple, which is a dividend payer and a growth company. Its the best of both worlds. „ Mike C., Apex, North Carolina The Fool Responds: Apple has indeed been rewarding its shareholders well, with both dividends and share-price appreciation. Its not a guaranteed gold mine, though. Under Armour has indeed fallen from its heights of a few years ago. Still, it has its believers, who see growth opportunities abroad, promise from its cost-cutting initiatives and a return to dependable profitability looming. Believers may want to hang on, but theres nothing wrong with favoring solid, growing dividend payers, either. Split-AdjustedQ What does the index effectŽ mean in the investment world? „ H.R., Jackson, MichiganAThe index effect is what happens when a given stock is added or removed from a major stock index. Remember that companies are routinely added to or removed from various indexes „ sometimes because they grow too big or small for the index theyre in, sometimes because they merge with or are acquired by another company, or perhaps because theyve grown more or less important.Consider the Standard and Poors 500, or S&P 500,Ž as an example. Theres more than $3 trillion invested in index funds that track it „ so if it adds a new company to its roster, all of those funds will have to buy shares of that stock, and all that buying can send the stock price up to some degree. Conversely, stocks removed from an index can see their prices fall. Typically, though, these spikes or drops are not long-lasting.***QWhat education and credentials do stockbrokers have to have? „ G.B., Portland, OregonAA college degree is often required. Stockbrokers also need to be registered with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), typically by passing the Series 7 (general securities representative exam) licensing examination „ and perhaps some other exams, too, such as Series 63 (uniform securities agent state law exam) and Series 65 (uniform investment adviser law exam).Remember, though, that these exams dont measure a brokers skill at identifying great investments. Worse still, brokers dont have to abide by the fiduciary standard that applies to investment advisers, requiring that recommendations be in your best interest. Instead, they just have to offer suitableŽ (and possibly high-cost) investments. It can be helpful to think of them, generally, more as salespeople than as independent financial advisers.Want more information about stocks? Send us an email tos SchoolYou Probably Need to Save MoreTheres a good chance youre not saving enough for your future. The U.S. personal savings rate was 6.6 percent in August, which is lower than it has been in recent months. (It was 7.4 percent in February, for example.) Consider, too, that Americans were saving more than 10 percent of their income for much of the 1960s and 1970s. Since most of us will be relying on ourselves for much of our retirement income, its important that we sock away enough to live off of in the future. Dont just assume that youre doing enough. If you save, say, $5,000 per year for 25 years, that might seem like a lot, but if, invested, it grew at 8 percent annually, it would total close to $400,000, That would give you under $16,000 in your first year of retirement, if you made a conservative 4 percent withdrawal. Add that to Social Security retirement income (which recently averaged about $17,000 annually) and it still wouldnt be a lot to live on. 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018 E/N/C Page 7 CROSSWORD PUZZLE DEAR ABBY HELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY: My husband of 20 years, Jerry,Ž recently learned about an old girlfriends death. A Facebook friend informed him about it. The message arrived late at night while I was sleeping, and he woke me to tell me the news. He is now receiving condolences from friends that he is responding to as though he were grieving. Abby, the old girlfriend and my husband split up on very bad terms. She not only cheated on him but gave him an STD. I am appalled and feel hurt that this is happening. Friends of mine are surprised and suspicious about it. I confronted my husband and asked him if the situation were reversed and I were the one who died and an old ame started receiving condolences, how would he feel? Jerry said it wouldnt bother him. Is it normal to send condolences to old ames? „ DEATHLY CONFUSED IN TEXAS DEAR DEATHLY: Its normal to inform others about a death, but considering the circumstances of the breakup, whats going on isnt normal.Ž Its possible that the messages your husband is receiving are from other Facebook friends who are connected to the sender of the original message. While it isnt unusual for old friends to reach out to each other after news of a death, to convey it in the form of a condolence to an ex-boyfriend after the romance is long over strikes me as somewhat odd. My advice is to remain calm, dont let it give you heartburn and wait for the emotions to subside with time. DEAR ABBY: The holidays are approaching, and I suspect many young couples are facing the same problem about where to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have two daughters „ one married and one single. The married daughters motherin-law has declared that this is herŽ year for Thanksgiving, and next year is herŽ year for Christmas. She has three sons, none of whom lives within four hours of her home. All three sons have children. Dont you think the sons and their wives should decide for themselves if they want to travel for the holidays? They may prefer to spend Christmas morning in their own homes. Also, what about her daughters-in-laws parents? Perhaps they, too, have other grown children who would like to decide what they want to do for the holidays. My philosophy is to plan my holidays and invite my children. If they can come, great! If not, there are no hard feelings. If all of my children and grandchildren cant be here at the same time, I focus on the ones who are and enjoy the time I have with them. I think the woman is being disrespectful to her sons and daughters-in-law. What say you? „ FOCUS ON A GOOD TIME DEAR FOCUS: As your letter illustrates, not all mothers-in-law are alike. Some are iron-sted matriarchs who demand obedience from their grown children. Others, like you, are more easygoing. In my opinion, the woman you have described is less disrespectful than overbearing.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Do you have any ideas for making homemade potpourri? „ Teresa from Texas Yes, I am a fan of potpourri. The scent is so lovely around the house. You dont need to go farther than your kitchen to nd the ingredients to make an inexpensive potpourri. Heres how: „Combine your favorite dried spices, such as cloves, rosemary, bay leaves or lavender, thinly sliced dried citrus, such as lemon or orange, along with cinnamon sticks, allspice berries or dried rose buds or anything else you love. To enhance the fragrance, sprinkle vanilla or almond extract on the top. „Place bowls of potpourri in the warmest part of the room and away from pets and small children. You can set them near a candle or on a mantelpiece or near a lamp because the heat will bring out the aroma. „Potpourri makes a great holiday gift. Buy glass candle jars when they are on sale at big box stores. You can ll them with holiday potpourri and wrap a ribbon around the jar for an aromatic gift. „ Heloise Dear Readers: Most of us love dessert, and even better, one that is healthy, tasty and fast to make. Try this: Slice apples, peaches, pears or bananas. Sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg. Drizzle honey on the top. Bake on a lower temperature like 250 degrees for 5-10 minutes or until soft. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: My children are learning to do their own laundry. Do you have a quick checklist I can give them to use to follow to get good results? „ Victoria in Louisiana Dear Victoria: Indeed I do. Make sure you give each child a plastic laundry basket with a dierent color to hold their clothes. You should be on hand at rst to guide them through these simple steps: „Separate light clothes from dark. „Sort out delicate garments from heavier fabrics. „Clean out pockets and close zippers and hooks. „Pretreat spots and stains. „Choose the right washing cycle and measure detergent exactly. „ Heloise Dear Readers: When you are bringing cooked food to a potluck dinner or party, it can be such a hassle to keep it hot and to prevent it from spilling. Heres an easy solution: Put hot stews, soups, vegetables or pasta into a wide-mouth, half-gallon thermos. The food will remain hot and wont spill inside your car. „ Heloise Dear Readers: As we know, home appliances break down and require repairs, which can be expensive, especially after the warranty expires.

Here are the simple ones to do: „ Check to be certain that the appliance is properly plugged in. „ Examine home fuses to be sure that one is not blown. „ Look to see if the lid or doors are ajar or not closed tightly. „ Heloise Dear Readers: If you are keeping cans of gas, paint containers or pesticides in your garage, they can be dangerous.

Page 8 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018WORLD NEWSBy CHRISTOPHER SHERMANASSOCIATED PRESSTAPANATEPEC, Mexico „ The Mexican government seems torn between stopping several thousand Central American migrants from traveling toward the U.S. border in a caravan or burnishing its international human rights image. On Saturday, more than a hundred federal police dressed in riot gear blocked a rural highway in southern Mexico shortly before dawn to encourage the migrants to apply for refugee status in Mexico rather than continuing the long, arduous journey north. U.S. President Donald Trump has urged Mexico to prevent the caravan from reaching the border. Police let the caravan proceed after representatives from Mexicos National Human Rights Commission convinced them that a rural stretch of highway without shade, toilets or water was no place for migrants to entertain an offer of asylum. Many members of the caravan have been travelling for more than two weeks, since a group “rst formed in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Not long after the caravan resumed the trek north Saturday, government of“cials were seen for the “rst time directly helping the migrants by giving rides in trucks and providing water along the scorching highway. Most of the migrants in the caravan appeared determined to reach the U.S., despite an offer of refuge in Mexico. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto launched a program on Friday dubbed You are home,Ž which promises shelter, medical attention, schooling and jobs to Central Americans who agree to stay in the southern Mexico states of Chiapas or Oaxaca, far from the U.S. border. Mexicos Interior Ministry said that temporary identity numbers have been issued to 111 migrants under the program. The IDs, called CURPs, authorize the migrants to stay and work in Mexico, and the ministry said pregnant women, children and the elderly were among those who had joined the program and were now being attended at shelters. After another brutally hot day on the road with her husband and 8-year-old son, Alejandra Rodriguez said the possibility of health care and a work permit in Mexico sounded enticing. But as she laid out a tarp and blanket to sleep in a covered parking area in Tapanatepec, the 26-yearold from Tegucigalpa, Honduras said shed prefer to start a new life further north. She had heard that job opportunities were scarce in southern Mexico. Orbelina Orellana said she and her husband were determined to continue north as well. Our destiny is to get to the border,Ž said Orellana, who left three children behind in San Pedro Sula. She was also suspicious of the Mexican proposal, fearing that she would be deported if she applies for asylum in Mexico. Mexican of“cials have greeted the caravan with a mixture of hospitality and hostility. Several mayors have rolled out the welcome mat for migrants who reached their towns „ arranging for food and camp sites. At other times, police have ejected migrants from passenger buses or prevented smaller groups from joining the caravan. The caravan still must travel 1,000 miles to reach the nearest U.S. border crossing at McAllen, Texas. The trip could be twice as long if the 4,000 or so migrants head for the Tijuana-San Diego frontier, as another caravan did earlier this year. Only about 200 in that group made it to the border. This years caravans have earned the ire of Trump. The Pentagon approved a request for additional troops at the southern border, likely to total several hundred, to help the U.S. Border Patrol as the president seeks to transform concerns about immigration and the caravan into electoral gains in the Nov. 6 midterms. Stoking fears about the caravan and illegal immigration to rally his Republican base, Trump insinuated that gang members and Middle EasternersŽ are mixed in with the group, though he later acknowledged there was no proof of that.Mexico torn between stopping, aiding migrant caravan By TRISHA THOMAS and NICOLE WINFIELDASSOCIATED PRESSVATICAN CITY „ A monthlong meeting of Catholic bishops marked by demands for womens rights wrapped up Saturday with delegates saying a place for women at the churchs decision-making table was a duty of justiceŽ and that the church as a whole must recognize the urgency of inescapable change.Ž Pope Francis had called the summit of church leaders to debate ways to better minister to young people and help them “nd their vocations in life. But the synod was quickly taken over by debate about issues that are particularly dear to the young in many parts of the world: the clergy sex abuse scandal, respect for gays, and womens rights. The issue of women was particularly acute given only seven nuns were invited to participate in the synod alongside 267 cardinals, bishops and priests. None of the women had the right to vote on the “nal document. A petition launched on the sidelines of the synod demanding women religious superiors be allowed to vote garnered some 9,000 signatures, but reference in a draft to the gender disparity at future synods was scrapped in the “nal document. The language that was kept, however, was strong and included one of the few straight-forward recommendations in the entire 60-page document. The synod recommends that everyone be made aware of the urgency of an inescapable change,Ž it said. It called for greater presence of women in church structures at all levels, including positions of responsibility, while respecting that the priesthood remains for men only. Its a duty of justice, that “nds its inspiration in the way Jesus related to the men and women of his time, as well as the importance of the role of some female “gures in the Bible, in the history of salvation and in the life of the church,Ž the document read. Church doctrine reserves the priesthood for men, given Christs apostles were male. Women have often complained they have a second-class status in the church. Historys “rst Latin American pope has vowed to change that, but he has done little and counts no women among his own advisers. Paragraphs referencing the role of women in the church were among the most contested during the “nal vote Saturday. But the full text passed with only the paragraph referencing homosexuality and sexual inclinationsŽ receiving enough no votes as to threaten passage. In the end it passed with 178 yes votes and 65 no votes, approved with 12 yays to spare. The “nal text made no reference to LGBTŽ faithful, which had been used in the preparatory document in what was a “rst for a Vatican text. While the term was rejected for the “nal document, the delegates voted to not scrap that initial text but to consider it complementary,Ž suggesting that the LGBT term lives on in an of“cial way. On abuse, the bishops stopped short of issuing a straight-forward communal apology for the decades of sex abuse and cover-up committed by priests and their superiors against young people. While that section of the document was entitled Seek Pardon,Ž the text voted on by bishops said merely that no amount of repentance can heal the trauma caused to victims. Thirty bishops voted against it.Vatican meeting endorses women at the decision-making table AP PHOTOMexican federal police in riot gear block the highway to keep a thousands-strong caravan of Central American migrants from advancing on their way to the U.S. border, outside Arriaga, Mexico, Saturday.

Lawrence completed 20 of 37 passes for 314 yards before staying on the sideline for good late in the third quarter. Tee Higgins and Amari Rodgers each had two touchdown receptions. The Tigers (8-0, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) moved to 8-0 for the seventh time in school history, including the third time in the last four seasons. They were dominant in the second quarter, scoring four touchdowns on consecutive drives en route to their fourth strwaight victory over the Seminoles. Florida State (4-4, 2-4) couldnt get out of its own way, suffering its most-lopsided defeat at home „ surpassing a 58-14 loss to Southern Miss in 1981. It was also the most points allowed by the Seminoles at Doak Campbell Stadium. Its the “ rst time Clemson has won four straight in a series that dates to 1970. Its also the “ rst time Florida State has lost four consecutive games to an ACC program (Miami previously achieved that feat before joining the league). Deondre Francois completed 17 of 36 passes for 180 yards and an interception for the Seminoles before departing due to injury. James Blackman came in and had a 73-yard touchdown pass to Keyshawn Helton. Florida State had not allowed 30 points in 11 straight games, but that streak was snapped less than a minute into the third quarter when Lawrence connected with Rodgers on a 58-yard catch and run.The takeawayClemson: The Tigers have cruised the last three weeks by a combined 163-20. Florida State: Florida State is 0-5 against ranked teams since the start of the 2017 season. Four of those losses are by double digits, including a 31-14 loss at Clemson last fall.Up nextClemson: Hosts Louisville on Saturday.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Florida StateClemson hands Florida State worst home lossBy MARK LONGAP SPORTS WRITERJACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) „ Jake Fromm threw three touchdown passes, ending speculation about freshman Justin Fields supplanting him in the starting lineup, and No. 7 Georgia beat ninthranked Florida 36-17 on Saturday. The Bulldogs took advantage of Floridas three turnovers and an injury to cornerback C.J. Henderson to win the Worlds Largest Outdoor Cocktail PartyŽ for the second straight year. Fromm completed 17 of 24 passes for 240 yards, none bigger than the three for scores „ all on third down. The “ rst two went to Jeremiah Holloman, who beat C.J. McWilliams both times. The Bulldogs (7-1, 5-1 Southeastern Conference) clearly were picking on McWilliams after he replaced Henderson (back) on the “ rst series. There had been talk that Georgia coach Kirby Smart would get highly touted freshman Fields more work following a 20-point loss to LSU. Fromm smashed those rumors. Florida (6-2, 4-2) took a one-point lead early in the third quarter „ Feleipe Franks threw a perfect, 36-yard touchdown pass to Freddie Swain „ but Georgia answered with another Fromm-to-Holloman connection and then pulled away late. Franks fumbled trying to get the ball out of the shadow of his goal line and gave the Bulldogs the ball at the 1. Georgia came up short on six attempts from inside the 2 and had to settle for a “ eld goal and a 23-14 lead. Despite the impressive goal-line stand, Florida couldnt get another stop. Fromm found Terry Godwin on another third down for a 36-yard score and a 29-17 advantage. The Gators were in big trouble at that point because theyre not built COLLEGE FOOTBALL: South Florida COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Florida Gators GOLF: Charlotte Lady TarponsBy BEN BAUGHSPORTS EDITORIt was a book by Pia Nilsson and Lynn Marriott that changed Charlotte Lady Tarpons golfer Becky Davis approach to the sport. The book was called Be a Player and its influence continues to resonate with Davis, shaping the way she approaches each shot. She read the book about a year ago. It was basically about staying positive or neutral, whether you hit a bad or a good shot,Ž said Davis. You cant let your mind get to you.Ž Its difficult to imagine how much better Davis would be, if the 18-yearold had made those adjustments earlier in her career. She hit the ground running her freshman year, and that was the first year we won Counties,Ž said Josh Hoffart, Charlotte Lady Tarpons girls golf coach. She was the medalist in all three of those events. It was one of her big goals. She was hoping to get that fourth year in a row medalist.Ž However, in 2018, she placed second, missing by a stroke, but still earning All-County status for her efforts. But when the season started there was a defined objective for Davis, qualifying for States, a goal she achieved through hard work, a competitive spirit and an intense desire to perform consistently at the elite level, something she has done throughout her interscholastic career. At the end of last season, as we were driving away from the Regional tournament, we had dinner and talked about next year, and how it was going to be different, so it was literally a year in the making,Ž said Hoffart. She had turned a big corner last season, as she had mentioned. The mental approach to the game was the last barrier needed to break through to jump into the 70s.Ž Davis improved her scoring in 2018, shaving a stroke off her average, going from 79 to 78. Placing an emphasis on her new approach, was a solid foundation that she was able to build upon throughout the season, said Hoffart. Charlotte County played a large role in the way Davis was introduced to the sport. She started by participating in a golf camp, when she was 10-years-old at Deep Creek Golf Club, working with the clubs professional Todd Evans, and that experience would serve as the catalyst for her trajectory, sending her down a path that would become a passion. Todd, he was just so nice, and he was so willing to help anybody who wanted it,Ž said Davis. So, my dad just wanted me to start taking lessons.

New Orleans played without star forward Anthony Davis. He was ruled out shortly before the game because of his sprained right elbow „ an injury through which hed played in a victory a night earlier over Brooklyn. The Davis-Gobert matchup has been a competitive and compelling one in recent seasons. With Davis out, Gobert had his best game of the young season. Hed come in averaging 14.5 points and had not scored more than 19 points in a game this season.

The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018 E/N/C Page 3 Golf has also provided Davis with a positive outlet, allowing her to stay in peak physical condition, and she also finds the sport therapeutic. Ive always been the type of person whos wanted to keep fit,Ž said Davis, whos committed to Savannah State University. I do have some days when Im super lazy and dont want to do anything. Golf is a fun sport to play, and its hard and people underestimate it. Its also a great way to take out your emotions, if youre having a bad day.Ž And although the sport can be stressful, Davis is able to maintain her equanimity in a very unique way. Usually, I get a song stuck in my head, and Ill go out and continuously sing that song,Ž said Davis. So, when Im not over the top of the ball, I have something to think of, so I dont always think about golf because that will mess up your game.Ž Hoffart was able to witness Davis evolution as a golfer up-close, and has seen her development and progression over time. I knew Becky before she started playing for us,Ž said Hoffart. She was around the golf course, the first couple of years I was coaching. She was a lot younger, and I was just starting to see improvements in her game. She was starting to get that real bug, wanting to be a competitive golfer. We had high hopes and a high ceiling in mind when she entered (high school). She hit the ground running.Ž Its that competitive desire, an intense motivation that comes from within, that has served as the impetus for Davis to reach an elite level. Davis work ethic and indefatigable nature on the golf course have made an impact thats palpable, not only with her ability to achieve optimal results, but its been a positive influence on others. She has brought a lot to the team, not just her scores, but her approach to the game, pushing some of the other girls to try to improve themselves, bringing a competitive aspect to the program,Ž said Hoffart. It certainly helped pay off for all of us. Theres a lot of things Ive learned from just being around her and seeing the way she approaches her shots. Its been fun and a true pleasure and a blessing to have her out here.Ž Davis has worked consistently to improve her game, whether it be driving distance and accuracy, sand saves, greens in regulation, putting; all of those variables have made a marked difference in her scoring average. I would say my short game was really good this year; I did have some moments where I didnt shine, but thats golf,Ž said Davis. You cant really do anything about that, but my long game has always been good. My driving, my driver off the tee isnt as good as I would like for it to be. My short game has improved from last season. Ive missed a lot of fairways, but I usually make it up.Ž Renowned for her consistency, Davis competitiveness is evident and her desire to win is palpable. At county and districts, I missed medalist by one stroke, and that killed me, losing by one stroke,Ž said Davis. I would rather lose by 15 than one. I would rather think about all the putts or little chips I couldve done better.Ž Davis and Hoffart, have a very close relationship, much like daughter and father, and that has played a role in her trajectory. At regionals, my emotions were frantic because on the second to last hole to play, I was four strokes behind the girl I needed to beat, if I wanted to make it to States,Ž said Davis. So, coach came up to me, and he was like, You cant give up because you have to play through all 18 holes. He was right because the girl blew up on the second to last hole, and I had birdied. So, I gained my lead back. I ended up making states. When I figured that out, all my emotions just came out. I started crying. It was so overwhelming. I worked so hard for this moment, and it finally proved that the golf Gods were on my side.Ž States will offer its own series of challenges as Davis will be pitted against Floridas best high school golfers. The tournament, 36 holes, will be Nov. 6-7 at the Mission Inn Resort and Club in Howey-in-the-Hills. Davis remains humble and grounded, realizing the challenges associated with the upcoming tournament. She knows shell be playing against the course and not the other golfers. Im not expecting to win my class,Ž said Davis. Its nerve wracking. I have expectations for myself, and my expectation was just to make it. Im not saying thats good enough. I achieved my goal. My objective is to shoot in the 70s both days.Ž PHOTO BY BEN BAUGHDavis and tarpons girls golf coach Josh Hoart, have had a daughter-father type of relationship. By BARBARA BOXLEITNERSUN CORRESPONDENTTwo Lemon Bay High School graduates nearly crossed paths when their college swimming teams met in competition. Ohio University junior diver Chastity Haxton said she and Miami University freshman swimmer Hunter Scott did not see each other during their Oct. 6 meet won by Miami. Haxton competed in an exhibition in the 1 and 3-meter dives, while Scott didnt compete. In her “rst season as part of the Ohio University roster, Haxton has been competing in exhibitions as she recovers from a foot injury apparently caused by overuse. The meet against Miami was her “rst since returning from time off. I was told I had a possible stress fracture,Ž she said. I just got out of a boot.Ž Since their meet, Scott has competed in the Akron Zips Classic, where her highest individual “nish was ninth in the 1,650-yard freestyle. She was a part of Miamis B 800 freestyle relay that “nished “fth and the B 200 freestyle relay that placed seventh. She also competed in the 50, 100 and 200 freestyle and 200 medley relay. More womens swimming University of Louisvilles Sophie Cattermole won the 400 individual medley at the Southern Methodist University Classic. The former Manta Ray placed eighth in the 200 breaststroke and 10th in the 100 butter”y. She was part of the winning 800 freestyle relay.

Send updates about area athletes to Barbara Boxleitner at jdanddoc@ COLLEGE SWIMMING: Lady Manta RaysLady Manta Rays excelling intercollegiately By BEN BAUGHSPORTS EDITORThe Charlotte Tarpons are poised to be a force on the hardwood this fall. Coach Tom Massolio, a former Tarpons player, is entering his 22nd year at Charlotte High School, and his impressive resume includes 10 20-win seasons. A deep roster is redolent of another successful season. Players are committed to this season, already preparing for this fall and winters demanding schedule, by spending time in the weight room and running to stay in peak condition. They had the opportunity this summer to participate in several AAU events, said Massolio. The “nal roster for the upcoming season hasnt been set. The last couple of months weve been able to do that,Ž said Massolio. So, that was kind of neat, even though we dont have our full team. We were able to see guys in a different atmosphere. Its been good for us.Ž An experienced roster will be a key variable as the season goes forward, and Massolio has to look no further than the seniors on his team, three of the four seniors have been part of the varsity program for the past three years, Ahmad Johnson, Makai Reeves and Kenny Scribner. The Tarpons also have Juniors Faustin Phanor and Tyrik Gainer and Sophomore Tre Carroll. Its that depth that makes the Tarpons formidable. We have quality minutes coming back for us,Ž said Massolio. That makes it a lot easier transitioning coming into the upcoming season. When you have guys that know whats expected of them, have been in the battles and know what we want as a team, its going to be very bene“cial. Experience is always good.Ž The Tarpons open practice on Nov. 5, and they start the season with the Classic, two weeks later on Nov. 19. A demanding schedule starts with the two Classic games, with a calendar that features a full slate going forward from Nov. 29, said Massolio. December is crazy for us,Ž said Massolio. We have a lot of games in December, but with the experience that we have coming back, and those kids who put in the quality time this summer with us, I feel pretty con“dent about what were going to do with what we have going on.Ž However, its those opportunities that are part of this seasons schedule, where the Tarpons will be taking part in a number of tournaments on the road including playing in Tennessee and the prestigious City of Palms Tournament in Fort Myers, that provide motivation and an enthusiasm thats palpable. The biggest thing I try to instill in kids, and if someone had a formula for this theyd be a millionaire,Ž said Massolio. You just dont want kids to regret what theyve done. The opportunity to practice, to play, to experience the things were going to experience, and those are the things that you just cant get back. Every day we step out on the court and do something, we cant get it back. Put forth the effort, put forth the time to get better. Every person I know, I dont care how much youve done, if you want to do something, go out and do it.Ž HIGH SCHOOL: BasketballTarpons ready for basketball season Tuesday Volleyball Venice „ Regional semi“nals vs. Lakewood Ranch, 7 p.m. Port Charlotte vs. Charlotte, 7 p.m. Wednesday Diving Lemon Bay „ District meet at Lely High School, 3:30 p.m. LOCAL SPORTS CALENDAR 36-yard touchdown run to give Houston a 35-26 lead with 8:25 remaining in the third. After USF cut the lead to six with a “eld goal, King hit Jeremy Singleton for a 52-yard touchdown pass before converting on a twopoint conversion pass from Bryson Smith to Singleton to up the lead to 43-29 with 2:43 left in the third.

King found Raelon Singleton for a 27-yard touchdown pass with eight minutes left to up the lead to 21.The takeawayUSF: The Bulls rebounded from another sluggish start to tie the game twice in the second quarter but were unable to stop King. USF rushed for 176 yards in the “rst half, but were held to 28 yards in the second half. Houston: The Cougars offense led by King was able to beat USF both in the air and on the ground.

Page 4 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018 GOLF: HSBC ChampionsSHANGHAI (AP) „ Tony Finau struggled for so much of Saturday in the HSBC Champions that he was hopeful of a strong “nish to carry some momentum into the “nal round. He got much more than he imagined. Finau closed with three straight birdies for a 2-under 70 and kept his three-shot lead because of a late collapse by Justin Rose, who played the “nal two holes in “ve more shots than Finau required. There was no need to panic,Ž Finau said. Just play some good golf coming down the stretch, and I was able to do that.Ž Finau was at 13-under 203 and led by three over Justin Rose, Masters champion Patrick Reed and Xander Schauffele. Finau was on the verge of falling three shots behind on the 16th hole after Rose had pitched to within 3 feet for a birdie, and Finau hit wedge that came up well short. He rolled in a 20-foot birdie putt from off the green to stay within two shots, hit a tee shot that rolled to within 18 inches of the cup for a short birdie on the par-3 17th, and then holed a 12-foot birdie putt on the 18th. Rose wasted a great round with a sloppy “nish and had to settle for a 70. He was two shots ahead going to the 17th when his tee shot went off the side of a hill and into a hazard, leading to double bogey. Then, his 4-iron to the par-5 18th was too far right and tumbled down the hill and into the water. He had a chance to save par until missing a 4-foot putt. Three back going into tomorrow, which is not exactly how it looked like it was going to be with a couple holes to play,Ž Rose said. There are three guys at 10 under who are all going to be chasing pretty hard, but nothing to lose tomorrow. Its going to take a good round. Im playing well, feeling good. Just got to put that last couple holes behind me and come out a little bit angry tomorrow.Ž Reed didnt make a par over the last six holes, with four birdies and two bogeys. He missed a 15foot eagle chance on the reachable par-4 16th, and then peeled his tee shot to the right down the slope into the hazard on the 17th to make bogey. A short birdie on the 18th gave him a 70. But the real collapse came from Rose, who had led since a short birdie on the seventh hole and appeared to be in complete control of his game. And then it was gone. His double bogey on the 17th hole sent him from a two-shot lead to a one-shot de“cit, and then he compounded it with another mistake on the 18th. Rose played the “nal two holes at Sheshan International in 11 shots compared to Finaus six. Schauffele rolled in a long birdie putt on the 16th and momentum until his second shot went into the water on the 18th, though he scrambled for par for a 69. Andrew Putnam, playing in his “rst World Golf Championship, had a 67 and was “ve shots behind, along with Tommy Fleetwood (72). Fleetwood was two shots behind until he chopped up the par-5 14th hole, three-putting from 12 feet for a triple bogey. Rory McIlroy also had an 8 on the 14th hole as he continued a big slide with a 75, leaving him 21 shots behind Finau. It not only was the second triple bogey this week for McIlroy, he has had “ve scores of 6 or higher on his card this week. Brooks Koepka, in his debut at No. 1 in the world, had a 71 and was 14 shots behind. Finaus only victory was in 2016 at the Puerto Rico Open, an event held opposite the Match Play in Texas. He had a three-shot lead going into the weekend, which was gone when he missed a short par putt on the “fth hole and failed to convert a 5-foot birdie putt on No. 7 as Rose was making his move. The 29-year-old American took only four putts over the last four holes, starting with a tough up-and-down from a bunker behind the 15th green that barely reached the fringe and trickled down to about 4 feet. By the end of the round, everything was going his way. Not only did he hit a ”awless tee shot into short range on the 17th, he got away with a poor tee shot into a bunker on the 18th and a shot that left him a lot farther from the green than he wanted. No matter. He made the putt and was on the verge of getting a victory to go with his consistent play this year. Im looking forward to tomorrow,Ž Finau said. Ive got a world-class “eld chasing after me. This is the position you want to be in and Ill be looking to close out my “rst tournament in this position, which is exciting for me. ... Im going to have fun no matter the outcome and hopefully make a lot of birdies and have those guys have to do something special tomorrow to beat me.ŽLate rally lets Tony Finau keep 3-shot lead in HSBC AP PHOTOSTony Finau of the United States tees o during round three of the HSBC Champions golf tournament held at the Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai.

TAOYUAN CITY, Taiwan (AP) „ Nelly Korda shot a 3-under 69 to share the lead with Wei-Ling Hsu after three rounds of the LPGA Taiwan Championship on Saturday. Playing in front of a home crowd, Hsu finished with an even-72 on Saturday after shooting 68 and 67 in the first two rounds. Korda and Hsu have a total of 9-under 207 and both will be looking for their first LPGA titles in Sundays final round at the Ta Shee Golf and Country Club. I think Ill definitely be a little nervous,Ž Korda said of Sundays round. Anyone who is in contention on a Sunday will obviously feel those types of feelings. But Ill also be excited and just happy to be in that position.Ž Korda will be playing in the final round with Hsu, who she knows will be the crowd favorite. Wei-Ling was playing right behind me (today), but you heard a couple roars,Ž she said. I think its awesome to see how much they support womens golf out here and just how they support a home player is really great. Its really nice to see.Ž Korda, the sister of fellow LPGA player Jessica Korda, dropped a shot on No. 13 but birdied two of the last five holes to move into a tie atop the leaderboard. Five players are within two shots of the leaders: Jin Young Ko (69), Bronte Law (69), Megan Khang (70), Lydia Ko (72) and Jodi Ewart Shadoff (73). Theres a lot of girls stacked up on the leaderboard,Ž Korda said. So you know, Im just going to be one of those girls thats fighting for it. GOLF: LPGA Taiwan ChampionshipNelly Korda shoots 69 to share 3rd-round lead in Taiwan By ANTHONY PEREZTAMPA BAY TIMESLOS ANGELES „ The Rays way is spreading. The number of teams that began using an opener to start games, and even more that began analyzing and considering it, is the highest pro“le and most impactful example. Literally game-changing. Then there was last weeks double play, the hiring of coaches Rocco Baldelli (by the Twins) and Charlie Montoyo (Blue Jays) as managers „ the most recent example of teams hoping to tap into their success, in process and performance, a different way. Similarly, the interest by the Mets and Giants in senior vice president Chaim Bloom for a general manager job. To be clear, Baldelli and Montoyo certainly got hired on their merits, and they might have gotten the exact same opportunities, or even better, had they been working elsewhere. But there is de“nitely a sense of curiosity in the industry about how the Rays do things „ and clearly not everything they think of and try works out „ and hiring from their staff is one way to access some of those processes. Even though they had been let go, former pitching coach Jim Hickey (who went to the Cubs) and hitting coach Derek Shelton (Blue Jays, Twins) were debriefed as well. So, apparently, is trading for their players, as RHP Nathan Eovaldi found out when he got shipped to Boston in late July. When I got traded over here, that was some of the questions I was asked, Why are the Rays so good? What are they doing over there to be so successful?  Eovaldi said before his epic World Series performance Friday night. And it starts with the management. (Manager Kevin) Cash does a really good job over there, and Charlie got hired with Toronto and Rocco is with the Twins now. When I was hurt in 2017, when I was rehabbing down there (and spending games) in the dugout, Im picking the players minds, but Im also picking the coaches minds. And I learned a lot from Rocco just about the small things. So just picking his mind and learning the little things about the game from him. I feel like a lot of the teams, when you have good success, the coaches end up going somewhere else. Red Sox manager Alex Cora had praise for both Baldelli, whom he credited for improvement in the Rays running game, and Montoyo, a fellow Puerto Rican, for being a great baseball man. The Rays are now tasked with replacing two coaches, which comes as the Jays and Twins along with the Angels and Reds, who also just hired managers, are also looking to do so. (And the Rangers and Orioles eventually will.) That process includes coming up with a list of names and considering restructuring since Baldellis “eld coordinator position was created to match his skills. The Rays like to promote from within, but it wouldnt be a surprise for them to go outside for at least one new coach. Between the two hires, they need at a native Spanish speaker and an in“eld expert. As for the bench coach, Montoyos vast game managing experience (in the minors) and quick thinking/anticipating seemed good assets for Cash, and may be logical prerequisites. Rays rumblings Theres nothing of“cial, but the usual Mets sieve-like news leaks sure make it appear they are picking agent Brodie Van Wagenen for the GM job over Bloom. As disappointed as Bloom (also a candidate for the Giants job) might be, this is probably a good thing long term. ƒ LHP Blake Snell joined Boston LHP Chris Sale and Houston RHP Justin Verlander as “nalists for the players-voted AL outstanding pitcher award to be announced Nov. 27. (Cy Young news comes Nov. 14.) ƒ. Not sure there was an obvious candidate „ maybe Joey Wendle at second base? „ but it sure seemed odd as good as the Rays defense was to have no Gold Glove “nalists. ƒ Ex-Ray Corey Dickerson is a “nalist for the NL left“eld award. ƒ With information gathering complete, the next procedural step in the grievance “led by the union against the Rays (and three other teams) over usage of revenue sharing funds would be talks to either settle or go to a hearing before an arbiter. ƒ The annual Fan Fest is slated for Feb. 9. ƒ The downtown Tampa Con Agra plant site that Lightning owner Jeff Vinik just bought had been of interest to the Rays for a stadium, but Tampa of“cials told them in 2016 it likely wouldnt be available. Hmm. Success, innovation begat departures MLB: Tampa Bay Rays

Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018By MATT BAKERTAMPA BAY TIMESOCALA „ Al and Judy Dunlap have assembled a family compound over the years. Theres the lake house, and the farm house, and the main home, all surrounded by horse pastures and guarded by an army of animal statues. Soon enough, the Florida State football program will feel the same way „ like one giant Dunlap complex. The Seminoles practice “elds, indoor practice facility and champions club seating area are all named after this married couple of 50 years. When FSUs football-only facility opens in 2021, the Dunlaps name will be on it, too, thanks to their $20 million pledge. The Seminoles announced that donation before Saturdays Clemson game as part of their $100 million fundraising campaign. Add in their previous contributions, and the Dunlaps donations to the Seminole Boosters top $40 million „ all from a Northern couple with no previous ties to the school. The relationship began when Al, a former lightning-rod business executive, was asked to include FSU on his speaking tour twenty-something years ago. The “rst words out of my mouth at FSU were, Geez, you have classrooms. I thought you just had sports facilities,Ž said Al, 81. He and Judy learned that FSU had more than football “elds, but it needed more, too. I used to always say, I am really concerned about leadership in America,Ž Judy said. I must have said it enough times, because they then came and presented us the opportunity to build this student success center.Ž FSU dedicated that Albert J. and Judith A. Dunlap Student Success Center in 2008 to help all students prepare for interviews and learn about leadership and community service. Eventually, their contributions veered toward their mutual interest in sports. Judy was active in athletics growing up in Wisconsin, and Als football success as a kid in New Jersey got him to West Point. But with football and college, Al became a successful, albeit controversial, businessman. He earned the nickname Chainsaw AlŽ for the way he ruthlessly cut expenses and employees. Many of his stops needed turnarounds. His overhaul of Scott Paper was a success, but his career at Sunbeam ended in a fraud scandal. Now retired, Al said he wanted to get involved in the football facility because it would boost the programs ef“ciency by placing everything in one, $60 million, 122,000-square-foot complex. Its going to put all of their facilities, the football “elds, the training, in one area,Ž Al said. The Dunlaps donation comes during a down season for the Seminoles, who are in danger of having their NCAA-record 36-year bowl streak snapped. But Al remains optimistic about the Seminoles future under coach Willie Taggart. Hes doing a turnaround, and as a guy who turned around nine multi-billion-dollar corporations on three continents, I know what hes up against,Ž Al said. I know about the criticism, and I know what it takes. And hes going to do it.Ž COLLEGE FOOTBALLOcala couple pledges $20 million for FSU football facility BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) „ JMar Smith threw for 217 yards and a touchdown and Louisiana Tech beat Florida Atlantic 21-13 on Friday night to snap the Owls 10-game home winning streak. Louisiana Tech (6-2, 4-1 Conference USA), which is bowl eligible for the “fth straight season, scored two touchdowns in the “nal three minutes of the “rst half for a 14-10 lead. Smith found Teddy Veal in the end zone to extend Louisiana Techs lead to 21-13 with 8:27 remaining. FAU appeared to get the ball back with just over two minutes left, but Louisiana Techs drive was extended after a 15-yard penalty on the punt. Jaqwis Dancy rushed for 116 yards and one touchdown for Louisiana Tech. Defensive end Jaylon Ferguson broke the C-USA career sack record in the “rst half with his 38th. Rafe Peavey made his “rst start of the season, replacing seven-game starter Chris Robison, and was 15-of-26 passing with an interception for FAU (3-5, 1-3). Devin Singletary carried it 19 times for 171 yards and one touchdown. Singletary scored on the opening drive for his nation-leading 15th rushing touchdown of the season. Hes tied with quarterbacks Eric Crouch and Colin Kaepernick for 11th in FBS history with 59 rushing touchdowns.Louisiana Tech ends FAUs 10-game home winning streak 21-13By ANDREW GREIFLOS ANGELES TIMES (TNS)LOS ANGELES „ Doc Rivers this week listed all that had happened in his sons life since he was traded this summer. Going to a new city, “nd a new apartment, new baby,Ž the Los Angeles Clippers coach said. There was a lot of change for him.Ž Austin Rivers is the “rst to say that not all change is bad. The Clippers (3-2) and Washington Wizards (1-4) meet Sunday at Staples Center in the “rst on-court reunion of the father and son who became the “rst in NBA history to share a sideline. They also saw their coach-player relationship become one of the most scrutinized in all of the NBA and a frequent target for complaints of favoritism during 3 1/2 years together. The Clippers dealt Austin Rivers to Washington on June 26 in exchange for center Marcin Gortat. That was a tough day,Ž Doc Rivers said. It would have been a lot tougher if it hadnt have been for Austin. Austin handled that so well it made me feel good. He talked about, Listen, we did something no ones ever done in the history of the game. There were some ups and downs to it, but there were more ups than downs and he was very thankful.Ž Thankful, Austin Rivers said this week in the debut episode of his podcast, Go Off,Ž because when his father traded for him in January 2015 he was a below-average pro trying to “gure it out.Ž Lets call it for what it is,Ž he said. I played for my father in the NBA, thats crazy. I never thought I would want to do that or actually do it and then it happened.Ž During 243 games with the club the former 10th overall pick in the 2012 draft averaged 11.1 points a game, played well in three playoff appearances and salvaged his career. The 6-foot-4 guard averaged a career-high 15.1 points last season and exercised a $12.6 million player option in June. Five days later while training in Miami with future Wizards teammate John Wall, he received a call from Clippers assistant Sam Cassell warning that a trade was in the works. Im sitting there like, What? What?Ž he said of the chat with one of his position coaches. And then like that I get a call. Once Doc and Lawrence (Frank, Clippers president of basketball operations) call its real.Ž Also real was the increasing desire to uncouple his career from that of his father. As the teams president of basketball operations at the time, Doc Rivers drew criticism not only for acquiring his son in a trade in 2015 but extending him a three-year contract worth $35 million one year later. Former Clipper Glen Davis, while complaining about being coached by Doc Rivers in a 2017 Instagram video, also criticized Austin Rivers as a bum whos been given the world. Shut up, and just stay under your father.Ž A SportsCenter anchor, Michael Eaves, reported in 2017 that Chris Paul felt Austin was entitled, that Doc Rivers treated him differently and also killed a trade for Carmelo Anthony because it would have shipped out Austin. Both Rivers called the Anthony trade report false. Not everyone who shared a locker room with Doc and Austin Rivers called the dynamic a problem. Theres a lot of good things and also things that are like, OK, this is a challenge,Ž said Luc Mbah a Moute, who played for the Clippers from 2015-17 and returned this summer after one season with Houston. I think they handled it well. I think they were successful at it. I think Austin is a good player and he went out and competed every night. I think Doc at least had the right intentions to make the right decisions when I was on the team. (Austin) was a big part of what we were doing and I think the reason why we were not successful or why we were successful, its not because of that relationship.Ž Said Clippers forward Danilo Gallinari, who joined the organization last season: Austin had a great year for us last year. Youd think that it could be a weird situation or a strange situation, but it was “ne.Ž Austin Rivers said he communicated to Cassell and his father last season his uncertainty whether to re-sign as a free agent in 2019. If he played well elsewhere, he believed, there would be no more daddy-son talk.Ž This is no BS, no ƒ I love the Clippers organization, how could I not?Ž Austin Rivers said. I came there as a kid and developed into a man. I came there as an unprofessional and developed into a professional and came in there as an OK player leaving as a starting-level player. So everything I did there I appreciate. But I felt like my head was hitting a ceiling because I was ultimately playing for my dad and no matter what I did it always came back to that. ƒ I could score 60, 50, 40, whatever and people would be like, Oh, his dads the coach. ƒ From a public standpoint it was rough like, I dont know if I want to do this anymore. I would like to go somewhere else and just be free. When I got traded after that a part of me was sad because Im leaving my family and my friends and the people I grew there, but part of me was like, this is what Ive been waiting for.Ž Doc Rivers said he was proud of his sons handling of the attention, which began when he was a top-rated high school player in Florida. Austin was often compared to his father and older brother, Jeremiah, who played at Georgetown and Indiana. I thought what he did the best here was he played the biggest in the biggest moments, which is what you needed him to,Ž Doc Rivers said. There was a lot of focus on him all the time and that was too bad but thats just life in general. Overall, I really enjoyed coaching him.Ž Come Sunday, hell coach against him.Austin Rivers embraces challenge of excelling as a pro without stigma of playing for his father COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Florida Atlantic By RICK STROUDTAMPA BAY TIMESTAMPA „You want Jason Licht as your general manager. Let him pick your players. Hes absolutely going to crush it. For your fantasy football team. Isnt that what the Buccaneers have become? The Bucs have the No. 1 offense in the NFL, averaging 449.5 yards per game. Kansas City? The Rams? Puh-leeze. The Bucs have the leagues best passing offense, averaging 376.8 yards per game. It doesnt seem to matter who plays quarterback, either. Ryan Fitzpatrick set an NFL record with three straight games of more than 400 yards passing and at least three touchdowns. Even that wasnt enough to keep him from losing his job to Jameis Winston when his threegame suspension ended. Credit Licht for providing coach Dirk Koetter the kind of skill players that any offensive-minded coach would love. Mike Evans. DeSean Jackson. O.J. Howard. Cameron Brate. Adam Humphries. Chris Godwin. Youve got “ve guys with over 20 catches and everybody has touchdowns and produce vertically down the “eld, said Bengals coach Marvin Lewis. So yeah, theyre doing a great job spreading the football around and guys are taking advantage of their opportunities. In fact, the Bucs are on pace to produce an astonishing 7,192 total yards of offense. That would put them within striking distance of the Greatest Show of Turf, the St. Louis Rams in 2000, when they compiled an NFL record 7,335 yards. (Since broken by the 2011 Saints at 7,474). I remember. Kurt Warner, Marshall Faulk, Torry Holt, Issac Bruce, Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston said reeling off the play-makers for the Rams. I say every week its a blessing to have the people we have on this team. Really at every level of this offense, starting with the offensive line, in the back“eld and guys outside on the perimeter. Thats a credit to the guys upstairs, Jason Licht. Its a blessing to be a quarterback in this type of offense and to have those types of weapons. For years and years, the only identity the Bucs had was defense. From Lee Roy Selmon to Derrick Brooks and Warren Sapp. And what happened? They lost 9-0 to the Rams in the NFC Championship game to end the 79 season. Twenty years later, Tony Dungys team led the Greatest Show of Turf 6-5 and were 4:44 from the Super Bowl when the Rams Kurt Warner found Ricky Proehl for a touchdown. Even the Bucs Super Bowl XXXVII championship team was driven by D. Five interceptions spearheaded the 48-21 victory over the Raiders. But now? The Bucs are a fantasy fanatics dream. The Bucs should “nish in the top 10 in the NFL in total yards for the third time in four seasons since Koetter arrived. Prior to that, they did it three other times in franchise history. Evans has become among the most productive receivers. He is 10th in the NFL with 591 yards on 40 receptions, a 98.5 average, with three touchdowns. I think he had a great off-season, a great training camp, offensive coordinator Todd Monken said. Hes playing at a very high level. Playing fast. He really is concentrating on yards after catch. Hes doing a better job there. His releases. We try to move him around a little bit, but theres such comfort in him in the positions we put him. So having the weapons we have, we never look at it as a mismatch for us. Jackson got off to an incredibly hot start. He still leads the NFL with a 22.9 yard average. Jaccpot was putting up 106 receiving yards per game until Winston returned. In standard league scoring for fantasy football, hes scoring about 13 points per game. Evans is just behind him at 12.3 per game. Both Fitzpatrick (26.25 points) and Winston (22) are pretty productive. By comparison, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is at the top of the food chain at 28 points per game. Howard (7.8) and Brate (5.4) are more than serviceable tight ends. Where the Greatest Show on Turf comparison breaks down is on several levels. Start with the fact that the Bucs have nobody who resembles Marshall Faulk „ or the Rams Todd Gurley for that matter. The Bucs are 31st in rushing offense, averaging 85.5 per game. Still, when you can remember Sapp pleading to the Bucs offense to just give me 17 (points), watching the Bucs average 27.8 points per game is, well, kind of a Tampa Bay fans fantasy. Winston, who says he never played fantasy football when he was at Florida State, insists the only points hes interested in are the ones on the scoreboard. One thing about the Greatest Show on Turf, they went to the playoffs,Ž Winston said. They won the Super Bowl. Those are the aspirations we have as a team.Ž Or as Koetter says, Yards and stats are nice to look back on later. But right now youve got to get one more point than the other team. Yards have to transfer to points, points have to transfer to wins. Thats really the only way you can look at it right now. NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers NBAIts not a fantasy, Tampa Bay has the NFLs No. 1 offense


The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018 E/N/C Page 7NO. 8 OKLAHOMA 51, KANSAS STATE 14NORMAN, Okla. (AP) „ Kyler Murray passed for 352 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another score to help Oklahoma beat Kansas State. The Sooners (7-1, 4-1 Big 12) rolled up a season-high 702 total yards and only punted once, and that was in the fourth quarter after Murray was done for the day. CeeDee Lamb caught four passes for a career-high 160 yards and two touchdowns, and Kennedy Brooks ran for 94 yards and two scores. The Sooners won their second straight since losing to Texas. Oklahoma held Kansas State (3-4, 1-4) to 245 yards. Alex Barnes, who entered the game as the Big 12s leading rusher, was limited to 28 yards on 13 carries. The Sooners gained 209 yards in the first quarter and took a 17-0 lead. Murray threw two touchdown passes in the period, including an 82-yard connection with Lamb.NO. 12 KENTUCKY 15, MISSOURI 14COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) „ Terry Wilson threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to C.J. Conrad on the final play to lift Kentucky past Missouri. Kentucky took over on its own 19 with 1:24 left. With 4 seconds left, Wilson threw toward Ahmad Wagner in the back left corner of the end zone. Wagner caught the ball out of bounds, but Missouri cornerback DeMarkus Acy was called for pass interference, giving Kentucky an untimed down that it turned into the winning score. Lynn Bowden Jr. returned a punt 67 yards for a touchdown with 5:18 left to pull the Wildcats (7-1, 5-1 Southeastern Conference) to 14-9. Kentucky held Missouri (4-4, 0-4) without a first down on eight second-half possessions. Wilson, who was replaced by backup Gunnar Hoak for part of the second half, completed 22 of 31 passes for 267 yards. Bowden had 13 catches for 166 yards. Benny Snell, who entered the game as the nations fourth-leading rusher, gained just 67 yards on 19 carries.CALIFORNIA 12, NO. 15 WASHINGTON 10BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) „ Linebacker Evan Weaver scored on a 36yard interception return in the third quarter after Washington made a change at quarterback, and California overcome a sluggish day offensively. The Golden Bears (5-3, 2-3 Pac-12) had only 245 yards and were limited to two field goals, but Weaver and the defense repeatedly bailed out the struggling offense while dealing a serious blow to Washingtons hopes of a second Pac-12 title in three seasons. The Huskies (6-3, 4-2) entered the day with a half-game lead over No. 14 Washington State and No. 24 Stanford but fell to second place despite not allowing an offensive touchdown. Washington starting quarterback Jake Browning threw his 90th career touchdown pass in the first quarter but was benched late in the third after the Huskies went threeand-out on their second drive of the second half. Redshirt freshman Jake Haener replaced Browning and threw an incompletion on his first pass before Weaver picked off the pass on a third-and-8 play. Browning returned after two series. He completed 11 of 21 passes for 148 yards.NO. 17 PENN STATE 30, NO. 18 IOWA 24STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) „ Nick Scott intercepted a pass to thwart Iowa at the Penn State 2 with 3:18 left and the Nittany Lions held on to avoid a third straight home loss. Penn State (6-2, 3-2 Big Ten) needed one last defensive stand to hold off Iowa (6-2, 3-2), which got to the Nittany Lions 44 with less than a minute left. On fourth-and-10 with 7 seconds left, Penn States pass rush swarmed Nate Stanley, who flipped backward to offensive tackle Tristan Wirfs. The 300-pounder rumbled 15 yards before being dragged down with no time left. It was a fitting end to an odd game with little sustained offense. Iowa scored on two safeties and a touchdown pass by punter Colten Rastetter to defensive tackle Sam Brincks on a faked field goal in the first half. Penn State played three series in the second quarter without starting quarterback Trace McSorley.NORTHWESTERN 31, NO. 20 WISCONSIN 17EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) „ Clayton Thorson ran for two touchdowns and threw a scoring pass to help Northwestern beat Wisconsin. The first-place Wildcats (5-3, 5-1) solidified themselves as contenders for the Big Ten West championship while gaining some revenge for a loss at Camp Randall Stadium early last season. With quarterback Alex Hornibrook sidelined by a concussion and the defense without several injured starters, it was a rough afternoon for Wisconsin (5-3, 3-2).

(AP) „ Kyle Buschs road to the championship round was made a little bit easier when he won the pole at Martinsville Speedway. Busch turned a lap at 96.254 mph around the Virginia paperclip to earn the top starting spot in Sundays race, the “rst of the third round of NASCARs playoffs. Eight drivers remain eligible for the title, but only four will advance to the season “nale shootout. A win in any of the three races in this round of the playoffs earns a driver an automatic berth. Busch won Martinsville last year to earn a spot at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and hes been so good all year as a member of NASCARs so-called Big 3Ž that advancing to the “nale is almost a given. He said Saturday after qualifying that the pressure has been amped considerably. Anytime youre under pressure or under the amount of stress as what this round is to get yourself into the “nal four for Homestead, anytime you can kind of take a step back and have a clear head is a good time,Ž Busch said. The pressure that sets in over these next two weeks if youre behind the cutoff line ... that can certainly wear on your during the week. You try to have other things to do to kind of take your mind off of it a little bit. This is what we live, eat, breath, sleep, everything. Its always on our mind.Ž The of“cial lineup is not set until after Sunday mornings inspection, and drivers whose cars fail inspection will start from the rear. Pit selection will occur after cars are inspected, and Busch is eager to claim the “rst stall on pit road to ease his exits during the race. Obviously starting position is important, but the opportunity is really to have that pit box,Ž Busch said. That number one pit box will hopefully do us good and we can have a good day, run up front much of the day and “nish there.Ž Clint Bowyer quali“ed second in a Ford from Stewart-Haas Racing, which has all four of its drivers in the “eld of eight. SHR teammate Aric Almirola quali“ed “fth, Kurt Busch was seventh and Kevin Harvick 13th. Chase Elliott was the lowest-qualifying playoff driver at 21st. Winner of two of the last three races, Elliott was terse after his poor qualifying effort. Asked what he needed to do better in qualifying, Elliott answered: to go a lot faster.Ž And his hopes for the start of Sundays race because hes starting mid-pack? Not getting lapped.Ž NASCAR: PlayoffsKyle Busch to lead next round of NASCARs playoffs Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Martin Truex Jr., front right, talks to a crew member prior to qualifying for Sundays Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Martinsville Speedway in Martinsville, Va.
