By LIZ HARDAWAYSTAFF WRITERToday is the last day to cast your vote early in Charlotte County. As for Sarasota, early voting ended Saturday. Though 44.75 and 39.88 percent of registered voters in Charlotte and Sarasota counties, respectively, have already turned up to vote, citizens are still in full-swing to get their message across. While blue Gillum signs and red DeSantis signs were prominently displayed for passing cars, Mary Fulumlee was handing out pamphlets outside one of the early voting locations Saturday in Charlotte County, urging voters before they waited in line to vote yes on Amendment 13. If passed, it will phase out greyhound racing in Florida by 2020. Shes doing it for her rescued greyhounds she has at home, she said. Many waiting in line felt obligated to get their voices heard. I grew up in communism,Ž said Charlotte County resident Diana Jankovic, who immigrated from former country Yugoslavia at 16. Im paying it forward.Ž One location in particular, the MidCounty Library, had eager voters pouring outside waiting in line. Its good to see people doing their duty,Ž said Charlotte County resident Alexandra Galarza. America is our country and we have to take care of it,Ž said Democrat Charlotte County Commission candidate Joan Fischer. This is where it starts; locally.Ž Out of the 134,539 active registered voters in Charlotte County, 59,891 have cast their ballots as of Saturday afternoon. More than half of these have come from mail-in ballots. Voter turnout is higher than usual for a midterm election,Ž said Charlotte County Supervisor of Elections Paul Stamoulis. Voters are clearly motivated to vote, no matter what their political af“liation or beliefs. Elections are the most visible and effective means of our citizens expressing themselves about issues that concern them. This is democracy in action.Ž In the previous mid-term general election in 2014, Charlotte County had a 56.74 percent turnout rate. The 2016 presidential election saw a a 76.5 percent turnout. More than half of the Charlotte ballots cast this year have been from registered Republicans, with the remaining 29 percent from Democrats and 18.6 percent from voters with no party af“liation. I expect turnout to be 60 percent, at least,Ž said Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections Ron Tu rner. Voter turnout is currently at 39.88 percent, with 74,871 votes coming from mail-in ballots and 52,103 coming from early voting at DID YOU REMEMBER TOFall back?

That includes ridership at the Punta Gorda Airport, sales tax dollars, unemployment improvements, home construction, home sales, and even tourism dollars in the midst of red tide. These numbers come from the November report of the Regional Economic Research Institute out of Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers. The only indicator that went down, aside from unemployment, was the median sale price of a single-family home. That dropped by $1,500 to $212,500 in September compared to September of 2017. I will not read anything into that,Ž said Director of FGCUs Regional Economic Research Institute Christopher Westley. You have to consider what the effects of rising interest rates are going to have on home sales,Ž he said. Its possible thats having an effect, or not.Ž Unemployment in Charlotte County dropped to 3.4 percent in September compared to 3.9 percent a year ago and 4.1 percent in August. The national rate was 3.7 percent in September.By ANNE EASKERSTAFF WRITERAfter passing a city ordinance requiring extra protection against credit card skimmers at gas pumps, the Punta Gorda Police Department is hoping to be even more proactive with a new device called the Skim Reaper.Ž We are looking to ensure that when people come and do business in Punta Gorda, whether they live here or theyre visiting, they know their information is as safe as it can be in these times,Ž said PGPD spokesperson Lt. Dylan Renz. PGPD will be part of a pilot program to test the device which was created at the University of Florida by computer and information science and engineering professor Patrick Traynor. Card skimming is big business and a big problem,Ž said Traynor. Helping law enforcement, vendors, and stores of all types to be able to defend themselves and know if they have a problem quickly would really be a game changer.Ž Traynor started working on the project about three years ago, after having his own card information stolen more times than I can think of,Ž he said. As an expert in information security, I got frustrated because there seemed to be nothing I could do about it.Ž He began thinking hard about Skim Reaper can protect you at the pumpDevice designed to uncover credit card skimmers PHOTO PROVIDEDThe Skim Reaper was developed at the University of Florida by Professor Patrick Traynor.SKIM | 8Even red tide isnt stopping Charlottes economic growthGROWTH | 8 Almost half of us have already votedWith election Tuesday, turnout higher than usual SUN PHOTOS BY LIZ HARDAWAYThough the line at the Mid-County Regional Library stretched to the outside, voters said this crowd was better than the one they would encounter Tuesday.

Polk Avenue, Arcadia LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSBy ANNE EASKERSTAFF WRITERSouthwest Floridians have the opportunity to retain or oust from of“ce four judges in the Second District Court of Appeal and one Florida Supreme Court justice this election. The Second District Court of Appeal hears cases from 14 counties, including Charlotte, Sarasota, DeSoto, Lee, Hendry, Glades, Collier, Manatee, Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas, Hardee, Highlands and Polk. The courts main operations are in Tampa, with the clerk of court based in Lakeland. There are 16 judges on the court, and between 5,500 and 6,300 cases are “led annually. The Supervisor of Elections has handouts on the judges at its of“ce, but Charlotte County Supervisor of Elections Paul Stamoulis stated only county judges are quali“ed by local S upervisor of Elections of“ces. Since few voters have direct knowledge of appeals judges and Supreme Court justices, the Florida Bar conducts a poll prior to the election on whether its members approve the retention of the judges and justices or not. Lawyers are in a unique position to put in their educated opinions, given what we do and what we read and what we need to research is more information for the public to make their education decision,Ž said Florida Bar President Michelle Suskauer. She said while not all attorneys have “rsthand knowledge of the judges, all of them are reading their opinions and dissents for how they decide cases. Its important to be an educated voter, whether voting on an amendment, merit retention, or a judge up for election,Ž she said. These decisions are important. Unfortunately, the information out there is spotty or may be possibly confusing. I think the public looks to the Florida Bar, which is one of the largest mandatory bars in the country, as a source of information thats credible that they can rely on to help educate them as to what to do.Ž The judges up for retention are Chief Judge Edward C. LaRose, Judge Anthony K. Black, Judge Darryl C. Casanueva, and Judge Susan H. Rothstein-Youakim. Chief Judge LaRose has served on the court since 2005, when he was appointed by then-Gov. Jeb Bush. He graduated from Cornell Law School in 1980, after which he started his legal career in Washington, D.C., practicing in the area of antitrust law. From 1983 until his appointment, he practiced commercial litigation, antitrust, and employment law at the “rm of Trenam Kemker Scharf Barkin Frye ONeill & Mullis in Tampa. The Florida Bar, which conducts a retention poll to guide voters, approved his retention by 90 percent of poll participants. Judge Anthony K. Black has served on the Second District court of Appeal since 2010 when he was appointed by then-Gov. Charlie Crist. Prior to his appointment, he was a circuit judge in the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit in Tampa for eight years. Originally from Wheaton, Illinois, he graduated from the University of Illinois College of Law in 1983 before going into private practice for nineteen years. He also served as a certi“ed mediator and represented several NFL football players as a Certi“ed National Football League Player Agent. The Florida Bar approved Blacks retention, also with a 90 percent vote. Judge Darryl C. Casanueva has served on the court since 1998, serving as chief judge from July 2009 to June 2011. A native Floridian, he received his J.D. from Loyola University School of Law in 1976. He began his career as an assistant state attorney in the Twentieth Judicial Circuit, then became a partner in the Port Charlotte law “rm of Olmsted, Schwarz, Kahle & Casanueva. From 1991 to 1998, he served as a circuit judge, working mainly in Punta Gorda. Casanueva was also approved by the Bar with a 90 percent vote. Judge Susan H. Rothstein-Youakim has served on the court since 2016. She previously worked in the United States Attorneys Of“ce in the Middle District of Florida from 1995 to 2016. She graduated from the University of Florida College of Law in 1993 and is a Sarasota native. The Bar voted to retain Rothstein-Youakim with an 86 percent vote. For the Supreme Court, Justice Alan Lawson has served on the court since 2016. He previously served in the Fifth District Court of Appeal and the Ninth Judicial Circuit, where he was chief judge from 2015 to 2016. Originally from Lakeland, he received his J.D. from Florida State University in 1987. Lawson received an 87 percent vote to retain For the merit retention elections, a yes vote means a vote to keep the judge or justice on the court for another six-year term, while a noŽ vote is a vote to have the judge or justice removed from the court. There are no opponents, and the races are nonpartisan. New judges and justices are appointed by the governor from lists submitted by Judicial Nominating Commissions, which screen candidates and make recommendations based on their merits. Newly appointed judges go on the ballot for the “rst time two years after appointment. If they are retained at that time, they go on the ballot every six years after that.

The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018 E/N/C Page 3LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS BY NORTH PORT SUN STAFFNORTH PORT „ Voters will cast their ballots to “ll two City Commission seats in North Port. All four candidates for the two seats have had a taste of city government: there is a former city employee, a current commissioner, a former board member and current board member. Despite being elected to a district seat, North Port residents can vote for each candidate regardless of where they live.DISTRICT 4Candidates: Pete Emrich and Kevin Rouse Covers: The Biscayne Drive and Tamiami Trail areas Currently “lled by: Vice Mayor Linda Yates, who is terming out of the spot This is Pete Emrichs second time running for commission. He competed against Jill Luke in a 2017 special election for an at-large seat. He is married to Sun Community News Editor Elaine Allen Emrich. He has two children and two grandchildren. He has lived in North Port for 27 years. Emrich was a former city employee for almost 20 years. After seeing how his work in city landscaping was able to help residents, he wanted to take that one step further. Ive always tried to help, tried to “x things and I want to try again,Ž he said at a candidate forum. This is where I live, where Im staying and I want to be a part of it just like you.Ž Emrichs main goals are tidying up the Uni“ed Land Development code, developing Warm Mineral Springs to host low-impact activity such as trails and ensuring citys funds are spent responsibly on the budget. Money needs to be spent on needs, not wants,Ž he said. Everyone has a grandiose idea on what they need and its often not true.Ž This is Rouses “rst time running for city commission. He currently sits on the Planning and Zoning Advisory board in the city. He is married with one child and has lived in North Port for 18 years. If elected, Rouse said he will have the residents at the forefront of his mind when making decisions. This government is very fortunate; were here for the people,Ž he said. As a commissioner my job is to listen to you guys. So I dont wait if I see something, I will go out to a persons home. Ive said my campaign will never end „ I want to spend time speaking with any of you.Ž Rouse has a slew of potential “xes that need to be made in the city. He also wants to clean up the Uni“ed Land Development Code and city charter, wants to push for future city planning, city sewer, a hospital, development in Warm Mineral Springs and promoting the Toledo Blade corridor. Our needs have to be taken care of “rst, which are these (Uni“ed Land Development and city charter) codes,Ž Rouse said. I am pro business, I am pro environment; we cant have a tug of war all the time. Infrastructure is a need ... and from there I will use the rest of the experience Ive gotten from my boards, from “rst responding. I will work with environmentalists and developers themselves, bring the experts to the table and let them “gure it out and both will thrive.ŽDISTRICT 5Candidates: Jill Luke and Peter Bartolotta Covers: The Jockey Club/West Villages area Currently “lled by: Jill Luke Jill Luke was elected in May 2017 in a special at-large election. She could serve until the end of the term, which is this month. Luke has lived in North Port since 2009. Before joining the commission, she was the manager for Patriot Storage in North Port. She believes she has worked on many important issues during her short time on the commission and will continue that trajectory. She broke a 2-2 tie vote on the Braves spring training stadium, pushed to resurface a splash pad for children, got angled parking along U.S. 41 and helped come to an alternative solution for the Spring Haven extension project. There were many other things as well,Ž Luke said at a candidate forum. It has been an honor serving you and when I ran (in 2017) I promised you I would do this again for 4 years. And I will commit myself to serving you for four years.Ž Some of her main issues include tidying up the Uni“ed Land Development code, ensuring there is another east-west corridor North Port candidates, issues on the ballot ROUSE EMRICH JILL LUKE BARTOLOTTA CITY CHARTER UP FOR VOTEFor more than a year, the North Port City Commission has worked with the Charter Review Advisory Board and interested residents on revising the city charter. Their attempts to reorganize the charter will be up for a vote on the November ballot. The question will read Shall the proposed 2018 City Charter as set forth in Ordinance No. 201828 be adopted to replace the current City Charter in its entirety?Ž The city charter acts as a constitution of sorts for the commissioners. It spells out many of the rules the city officials follow, including term limits, candidate qualification specifications and powers and limitations of commissioners. But some residents are concerned about the potential outcome. The Republican Party of Sarasota recently decided to vote noŽ against endorsing the city charter referendum. The membership votes, not the board,Ž vice chairman Jack Brill said. And the membership voted I think because they felt the current charter could be improved upon, without throwing out an entire charter and replacing it with a whole new one. That is my understanding.Ž Commissioners are worried the perceived negativity will impact the final vote. Its important for people to know what it is and what its not,Ž Vice Mayor Linda Yates said. This was a two-year process. The charter review board was very involved and we provided further organization. Theres not major substantive changes; several people said it was ambiguous so we clarified things in the charter.Ž SARASOTA COUNTYBALLOT | 8 adno=3624845-1

The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018 E/N/C Page 5LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSU.S. House of Representatives District 17The race to “ll Tom Rooneys U.S. House of Representatives District 17 seat recently took a tragic turn. After Democratic candidate April Freeman died unexpectedly in September, Democrats selected Highlands County resident Allen Ellison as her replacement against Republican State Sen. Greg Steube (R-Sarasota). Freemans name will still appear on the ballot, but her votes will count for Ellison. In one regard its an opportunity, and in another its a tragedy,Ž Ellison said. I try to be mindful that a family lost their mother.Ž Its obviously not a typical scenario,Ž Steube said. My heart goes out to her family. It just makes things challenging for both sides, her name remains on the ballot so its not like you can do the normal things you do in a campaign. Its just an unusual set of circumstances that makes the race challenging.Ž Ellison was critical of Steubes Trump-centric policy. (Steube) talked a great deal about going to Congress to represent the Trump agenda,Ž he said. I feel like the “rst thing you have to understand as a representative is you are representing the people of your district, the people of this country. You should never go into Congress with the sole aim to represent the President. It goes outside the constitutional and moral obligation of your position.Ž This district voted for Trump by 27 points,Ž Steube said. I dont see a change in support for him when I talk to people.Ž What are these candidates focusing on, if they make it to the Capitol? What Ive experienced talking to businesses and employers,Ž Steube said, are the problems with illegal immigration. Your employer is trying to get a workforce that is here legally so they can go through the process to get a good labor force and good employees. So, I think thats one of the biggest issues facing our nation and certainly in our district.Ž Ellison is focusing on the needs of the district as a whole. One of the reasons people havent gotten what they want from their representatives was because (the representative) didnt know what the issues are,Ž Ellison said. I want to make a difference in things that have been overlooked for so long.Ž One issue he mentioned was helping the disabled community, which makes up over 180,000 people in District 17. It affects people across the board, its a non-partisan issue. Its our job as representatives to represent our constituents in a way that helps them.Ž We spent an incredible amount of resources getting our message out in the primary,Ž Steube said. Ive been in the State legislator process for the last eight years. I have a ton of experience compared to the newly appointed nominee.ŽCharlotte County Commission, District 4A sitting Charlotte County commissioner will face Democratic opposition for the “rst time in 10 years. Two-term incumbent and Republican Stephen R. Deutsch will face Democrat Joan V. Fischer to decide the District 4 seat. Both candidates were New Yorkers. Deutsch spent much of his career in Rhode Island, where he was elected to both houses of the state legislature. His professional background includes urban planning, and he served as the executive director of a housing authority in Rhode Island. Fischer is a registered nurse. She retired from county government where she was assistant director of vocational education. In New York, she was director of state and federal programs for the New York Department of Labor. She has served on many volunteer boards, including at county libraries and as director of the county Democratic Party. The main point of contention between the two has been Fischers accusation of a lack of openness in Charlotte Countys commission and government. Deutsch has expressed incredulity at this accusation, pointing to the extent of government records and decision making made available to the public. Ive said to her many times, show me one instance,Ž he said. Fischer, who is a regular at commission meetings and hearings, said she believes many decisions are already made in county government before the information is made public. Youre not being told about things until its ready to be rubber stamped,Ž she said recently. In other ways, the candidates have similar inclinations, such as supporting the expansion of real estate development in the county, following the doldrums of the 2008 recession. Both candidates support the gradual increase of impact fees imposed on developers, which would in theory generate income for infrastructure and schools. Both candidates share the view of the entire commission, that the county should allow developers to come up with ideas. But with large developments, Fischer is less generous. She has said the county is giving away too many decisions in the planned Sunseeker Resort project in Charlotte Harbor. She opposes the size of the project, which maxes out at nine condominium towers on 22 acres. It seems that Allegiant and Sunseeker hold all the cards,Ž she said, adding that it is they who are telling the commissioners what to do, not the other way around. Deutsch says the commission has not given away anything to Sunseeker without getting something in return, such as the promise of a 2,150-foot public Harbor Walk. Deutsch has campaigned on the accomplishments of the commission during his eight-year tenure, as well as the boards ability to work together rather than engage in public displays of antagonism. He sees himself as a facilitator of agreement. Accomplishments, he said, include the countys rising property values and appeal as a site for commercial and residential developments. Things are going well. We havent raised taxes. Weve improved infrastructure,Ž he said.Charlotte County School BoardCara Reynolds and Cathy Janiak will go head to head in a battle of teachers in the Tuesday General Election. Both Reynolds and Janiak have extensive experience working in Charlotte County Public Schools and believe they can bring a teachers perspective to the board. Finding a school board member is a complicated puzzle,Ž said Reynolds, a teacher of seven years before moving on to co-own a local business. You need someone who knows our schools but understands the technical side of running a massive organization like CCPS. As a mother, educator and small business owner, I have the pieces of the puzzle to implement positive change in our school system,Ž Janiak said: Im not a politician, Im an educator. Im the person who understands the school system, the teachers. I understand whats happening in the schools right now. I think I have the most in-depth knowledge.Ž And in the race for school board, a few topics have risen as major focuses of both candidates, including mental health and safety, board transparency and teacher pay. We all know teachers salaries arent great,Ž Janiak said. She believes an increase in pay will not only keep teachers from leaving for neighboring districts but will result in an overall better quality of education. Its our future thats at stake, were talking about our children, all the children in Charlotte County.Ž Reynolds holds a similar stance, noting that an increase in the CCPS budget would allow the district to attract and retain good teachers, ultimately providing better services to students. To do so, both are in support of the tax referendum, which will also appear on the Nov. 6 ballot, and if passed could bring in an estimated $17 million for the district annually.Election 2018: A heavy helping of Charlotte races on the ballot REYNOLDS JANIAK ELLISON STEUBE DEUTSCH FISCHER AMIRA FOX FACES WRITEIN CHALLENGERAlthough Amira Fox won the Republican primary for State Attorney in the 20th Judicial Circuit and faces no Democratic opponent, her name will still appear on the ballot for the general election in November. Currently serving as the Chief Assistant State Attorney for the 20th Circuit, Fox faces write-in candidate Joseph Hoffman, a Fort Myers attorney. Hoffman has raised no money and does not immediately appear to be campaigning. Attempts to reach Hoffman for comment were unsuccessful. While Fox is still on the ballot, she said she will continue to connect with voters, talking with them about what is important to them and explaining her platform, which remains the same as it was during the primary. My biggest priority for the State Attorneys Office remains the safety of our community,Ž Fox said. I will continue work with law enforcement to maintain our low crime rate and vigorously prosecute dangerous offenders. I also will be focusing on tackling drug addiction and mental health issues through the use of specialty courts and will always look for new and innovative ways to tackle crime.Ž CHARLOTTE COUNTY CHARLOTTE | 6 AMIRA FOX 3440 Conway Blvd. #2A (Behind Post Office) € Port CharlotteDR.

Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSIn light of the tragedies of last school year, including the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Janiak and Reynolds also assert that schools must take a preventative stance and focus more on mental health and student security. Janiak, who was also a counselor during her time with CCPS, commends the district for adding mental health professionals at the high school level but notes that it is not enough. Ive done risk assessments on students as young as kindergarten. We need counselors and psychologists in our elementary and middle schools, as well,Ž she said. Reynolds agrees that, when it comes to childrens safety, more resources need to be provided to all age groups. One of her initiatives is to provide better mental health training to all members of the staff to ensure they can recognize and solve a problem before it is too late,Ž according to her website.Charlotte School ReferendumFor months, the Charlotte County school district has had one focus: the school tax referendum. Last year, the Charlotte County School Board began devising a way to combat low state funding and took note from nearby Sarasota, which instituted a voterapproved tax in 2002. The referendum is a proposed 1 mill tax for landowners, which equates to $1 for every $1,000 of property value. This means the owner of a home valued at $80,000, after homestead exemption, would pay about $80 more every year. Currently, the referendum is set to last four years, meaning it could not appear on a ballot again until November 2022. According to Vote Yes! for Success, a campaign in favor of the tax, the district will divide the money into four categories: competitive compensation, increased instructional time, STEM and art programs, and special projects/reserve. The minimal increase in taxes weighed against all the bene“ts this will bring to Charlotte Countys schools and students is nothing,Ž said School Board Chairman Ian Vincent. The board has estimated the tax will bring in an extra $17 million every year, helping the district stay competitive with neighboring districts like Sarasota and Lee. About $7 million will go to boost the pay of teachers and staff. Sarasota teachers average $42,000, Lee averages $40,000, and DeSoto, $38,500, while Charlotte instructors average $38,233, according to Vote Yes! for Success. Likewise, food service workers average only $9 per hour compared to $9.28, $9.90 and $10.65 in Sarasota, DeSoto and Lee, respectively. Were losing good people to Sarasota and even Lee,Ž said Sue Sifrit, chair of Vote Yes! for Success. Just this year, Charlotte County Public Schools had to “ll nearly 100 teacher positions after a mass exodus, many transferring to higherpaying districts. The second highest amount, $5 million, will be spent on increased instructional time. More time in class, the district hopes, will further add to the quality of students education. In Sarasota, students receive an extra half-hour each day. Theyve been an A district since the Florida Department of Education began grading schools in 2004. Another $3 million will go toward programs designed to not only engage students but prepare them for post-education life, as well. This includes workforce training, tutoring programs, art, music, athletics and much more. The remaining funds, about $2 million, will be put in reserves. Currently, the referendum is backed by large local organizations including the Charlotte County, Punta Gorda and Englewood Chambers of Commerce, the Charlotte County League of Women Voters and the Charlotte DeSoto Building Industry Association.Charlotte County Airport AuthorityAirport Authority District 4 commissioner Kathleen Coppola wants to serve one last term, but “rst she has to make it past nonpartisan candidate Joe Makray. For the primary, Coppola faced off with fellow Republican Stan Smith. The results were close, with Coppola proving victorious with more than 700 votes, winning by 4 percent. Now Coppolas name will face Smiths friend, Makray, on the Nov. 6 ballot. And, like Smith, Makray is hoping to bring an aviation-centric perspective to the board. Im a simple guy, I have common sense. Id just try to do a good job,Ž Makray told the Sun during an interview at the airport aviation hangar where he keeps his Piper PA-28 Cherokee. He reminisced on his days farming beef cattle in Pennsylvania, his two years in the army, some in Vietnam, and then how his life took a turn toward farming, construction and welding. Id bring aviation experience.Ž Though he doesnt have airport experience speci“cally, Makray has a private ”yers license and 30 years of construction experience. Since PGD is pursuing a multitude of construction projects in its Master Plan, Makray said his experience would come in handy. Coppola cites her 27 years of experience on the board as her advantage. (PGD) represents the community as something thats honest and growing, and now giving back in the form of economic development,Ž Coppola said. She attributed this success to a collaboration of grant writers, an ef“cient CEO and fellow board members. Regarding her experience, Makray questioned Coppolas ability to bring new ideas to the table, since she has been serving on the board since 1991. After a while, your ideas get stale and you just become a bobble head. Whatever happens, she wags her head around, yeah, Ill vote for that,Ž said Makray, who moved to Charlotte County in 2014. Since being sworn in in 1991, Coppola has seen the Punta Gorda Airport grow from pen-and-paper bookkeeping to seeing more than a million passengers “lter in and out of the terminal annually. With the airports rapid growth, she sees ample opportunity for new ideas. Coppola said her time in the community is a plus. Since moving here in 1977, I know the community,Ž Coppola said. I raised my kids here, Ive been involved. I love the airport.ŽPunta Gorda City CouncilFor the “rst time in her political career, Mayor Rachel Keesling will have an opponent: Punta Gorda Isles resident and former PGI Civic Association president Debby Carey. The nonpartisan race is for the City Council District 2 seat. The winner wont necessarily be mayor, however, because in Punta Gorda mayors are chosen by the council. Keesling, now in her eighth year on the council, wants to continue her work with the city. I feel like Im totally invested in this community, and I want to make it the best it could possibly be,Ž said Keesling. Since moving here in 2012, Carey has served in multiple voluntary positions, most notably on the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association, some years as secretary and most recently as president. I have a lot of people in communication (with me) that express discontent with the way things are going,Ž said Carey. The voice of the citizens is not always represented by a majority of our City Council.Ž Carey is also secretary of the Punta Gorda Historic Mural Society and has recently been appointed to the board of the Early Learning Coalition of Floridas Heartland. She also serves on the Police Chiefs Advisory Board and is a graduate of the Punta Gorda Citizens Academy, a course of classes designed to provide insight into city government. Carey believes it is time for a new perspective in the city and for its future, which she believes she can provide. I have fresh ideas,Ž said Carey. Ive been out listening to people as president of the civic association. I think that communication is lacking. We dont feel like we are being heard. The votes of some council members dont represent the community. Its very frustrating.Ž For Keesling, the most important reason to stay on the council is the budget. Its going to be a really tough budget ... a tough problem to solve ... because weve got a lot of expenses and revenues.Ž When asked how long Keesling thought the city could keep up maintaining the same millage rate, she said, We do have a substantial carryover this year, but we are inching it up a half a percent every year.Ž Carey questions the current councils spending habits. I dont believe that this council has been “scally responsible,Ž said Carey. I sit through council meetings and I am absolutely shocked at the things that get approved.ŽState Senator, District 26When it comes to campaign fundraising, political newcomer Catherine Price, D-Lake Wales, is “ghting an uphill battle against Florida Rep. Ben Albritton (R-Wauchula). They are both campaigning for the open District 26 State Senate seat. The seat opened up when current Sen. Denise Grimsley, R-Lake Placid, made an unsuccessful run in the Republican primary for state commissioner of agriculture. Albritton, a Heartland native, has raised just over $248,000 for his campaign, whereas Price has only raised $41,685, according to the most recent reports from Floridas Division of Elections. Price, originally of Tennessee, is no stranger to the district; she has lived in Lake Wales for 31 years. But campaigns arent won merely on fundraising. Both candidates believe winning the district relies heavily on being in touch with the people of District 26, which encompasses parts of Polk, Charlotte and Lee counties, as well as all of Hardee, DeSoto, Highlands, Glades and Okeechobee counties. Health care availability for lower income and middle-class families is a major focus for Price. When you go out right now into the community,Ž said Price, youre seeing middle-income families that are struggling to access health care services because of the high deductibles and co-pays particularly with these high-deductible insurance plans. Many of the small business owners have no insurance. When they go in the hospital or have a health care crisis, they go broke.Ž Albritton said health care is an issue in the state but that it should be made available through free marketplace principlesŽ rather than raising taxes.Ž There are two common sense ways to help with that,Ž wrote Albritton in an email to the Sun. One, “nd ways to lower the costs of health care by “ghting to interject more free market forces into healthcare delivery, and two, help with training/education to deliver more valuable skills to our workers so that they can earn more in the marketplace and pay for healthcare themselves.Ž „ Compiled by Dan Sutphin, Anne Easker, Liz Hardaway, Kayla Gleason and Betsy Calvert.CHARLOTTEFROM PAGE 5 PRICE ALBRITTON KEESLING CAREY COPPOLA MAKRAY Advertisement Advertisement DOES YOUR BUSINESS QUALIFY?

Page 8 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018 FROM PAGE ONEthe problem, speaking with retailers and law enforcement to learn the ins and outs of skimmers. He partnered with the New York City Police Department Economic Crimes Task Force and did a ride-along in New York City to test out the “rst prototype. Traynor said the way skimmers work is by adding additional read headsŽ to a card reader. The Skim Reaper is able to count the number of read heads in a machine and alert the user if theres more than one. For Punta Gorda, Lt. Renz said theres a concern that since the city ordinance limits the ability of crooks to install internal skimmers in gas pumps they might start using more external skimmers. The Skim Reaper, he said, would prevent that. It would allow us to periodically check any kind of place where credit card transactions are done,Ž said Lt. Renz. It would work on gas pumps, ATMs, card readers in retail shops. It can detect whether the card is being read twice, which would indicate that there is an external skimmer attached to the machine.Ž Traynor said its dif“cult to estimate any numbers of how often skimmers are actually used, because so few are ever found. Ive spoken to multiple sources from law enforcement throughout the state, and the estimate is we catch probably just 5 percent of the skimmers that are out there,Ž he said. We hope the Skim Reaper helps catch those devices but also makes it more dif“cult for folks making skimmers These devices cost money to make, and if they are quickly and regularly being lost because theyre being detected, that makes it harder to turn a pro“t.Ž For the pilot program, Traynor said theres been interest from more than 100 different law enforcement agencies, retailers, gas station owners, and banks. The participants will report back any issues with the initial design before a bigger launch next spring. Eventually, he said managers at retail stores could walk around and check all points of sale a couple times a shift. The g oal of building this tool is to make it so easy that anyone inside the company can do it,Ž Traynor said.Email: aeasker@sun-herald.comSKIMFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOThe Skim Reaper is used by an NYPD detective to test an ATM machine for any skimming devices.Tourist tax money, which comes from the hotel bed tax, managed to go up by 8 percent in August compared to last year in Charlotte County „ despite red tide. That was in sharp contrast to Collier and Lee counties. Lee County dropped 18 percent from last year while Collier County dropped 2 percent. I was in Charlotte County when the red tide was really bad in Lee,Ž Westley said. It was not an issue in Charlotte.Ž Westley is a fan of Charlotte County, saying he likes its room for growth and lower prices. The only cloud is the same one that always hangs over Florida. It is heavily dependent on tourism. This relatively limited range of jobs makes it vulnerable to boom and bust, the report states. Southwest Floridas industry diversity is less than Florida overall, making it more vulnerable, Westley said. Florida is below average in the nation for industry diversi“cation. We overheat at this stage of the expansion,Ž Westley said of Florida. The question is, how much longer can it last.Ž Continuing the good news, airport use in Punta Gorda increased 26 percent in August over last year. It declined from the prior month, but that is typical every year. Sales tax dollars were up everywhere. Charlotte taxable sales rose to $266 million in August, up 9 percent over last year. These are revenues the county can tap into for capital improvements. Single family home permits keep rising. Charlotte issued 177 in September, which is 99 more than September 2017. Westley believes that a wider range of jobs will come to Charlotte as the population increases, which it is projected to do.Email:ecalvert@sun-herald.comGROWTHFROM PAGE 1besides Price Boulevard and focusing on infrastructure which will help future businesses coming to North Port.

He previously served on the North Port economic development advisory board. He also founded Vision North Port in 2006 and the North Port Economic Development operation. He has lived in North Port for 25 years. Bartolotta has a slew of ideas, focusing on six main sectors: Warm Mineral Springs, ecotourism, job creation, centers of excellence,Ž an entertainment hub and healthcare facilities. His opinion on healthcare may prove controversial: while many of North Port residents are “ghting to bring a hospital to the city, Bartolotta wants to make sure that is the best path to take for health care services in the city. I dont want us to build a hospital that will be obsolete in three years, I want to build a hospital of the future,Ž he said. Im advocating for a hospital as it “ts into quality health care, not a standalone hospital right now.Ž During an editorial board meeting with the Sun, he continually brought up his business experience, saying it contributed to an overall mindset of simplifying and moving forward.Email: BALLOTFROM PAGE 3 Ive spoken to multiple sources from law enforcement throughout the state, and the estimate is we catch probably just 5 percent of the skimmers that are out there.Ž „ PGPD Lt.

Page 2 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMES By STEVE BROWNTHE DALLAS MORNING NEWSHome price growth is slowing in almost half of the major U.S. housing markets. The Dallas-Fort Worth area was called out by researchers at Attom Data Solutions as one of the areas where home appreciation is decelerating after years of value gains. North Texas home prices were less than 6 percent higher in the third quarter than they were in the same period last year, Attom Data found. In third quarter 2017, D-FW home prices were up more than 12 percent annually. Along with D-FW, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston and Miami were identified as markets where home cost increases are also dwindling. The continued slowdown in the rate of home price appreciation nationwide and in many local markets is a rational response to worsening home affordability „ which has deteriorated at an accelerated pace this year due to rising mortgage rates,Ž Daren Blomquist, senior vice president at Attom Data Solutions, said in the report. Markets not experiencing this price appreciation cool down may have more of an affordability cushion to work with, but some are in danger of overheating if home price gains continue to run hot.Ž The D-FW area has had the largest percentage increase of home prices of any U.S. metro area. North Texas median home prices are now 86 percent ahead of where they were a decade ago before the housing market crash, Attom Data says. Houston and San Antonio are also on the list of cities that have seen the greatest residential appreciation since the Great Recession. Median home prices are now higher than they were before the economic downturn in almost 70 percent of the markets Attom Data tracks. And the rate of home price appreciation is still accelerating in some metro areas, including San Jose; Boise, Idaho; Las Vegas; San Francisco and Atlanta, the latest housing study finds. And the average nationwide homeownership tenure increased in the third quarter to an all-time high of 8.23 years. In the D-FW area average time owners have stayed in a house is 7.49 years, a new all-time high for as long as we have data,Ž Blomquest said. Homeowners who did decide to sell their properties on average saw $61,232 in gains since they purchased the property „ the largest profits since 2007, Attom Data finds. All-cash purchases accounted for 27 percent of total U.S. single-family home and condo sales in in the third quarter. And only 11.6 percent of all U.S. single-family home and condo sales in the third quarter were distressed properties „ an 11-year low.More US metros are seeing slower home price growth as housing market cools TNS PHOTOA home for sale in the Hollywood Riviera neighborhood of Torrance, California.

Page 4 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018 OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESBy GARY M. SINGERSUN SENTINELQ: We were going to rent a home in a rental community. We filled out the application and left a $250 deposit. A few days later, we were informed that we were accepted and needed to pay an additional $850 for the deposit. We went and left the check but could not finalize the lease because the manager was not at the office. Over the weekend, we decided that we did not want to rent there and called Monday to ask for our money back. They are refusing. Can they keep our money? „ Linda A: No, probably not, or at least not most of it. I am going to use this opportunity to restate some advice that I cannot seem to say enough: Do not sign anything unless and until you read it and understand what it says. If you are not sure what it means, do not sign until you do. I am going to go out on a limb and assume that your initial $250 depositŽ was an application fee,Ž which you agreed to pay somewhere in the fine print of the multi-page application. If this is correct, you have already spent those $250, and they are gone. You should review your copy of the form (always get a copy of everything you sign!) and confirm this. If it was a deposit and not a fee, you should be able to get it back. The $850 check is going to depend on if and what you signed when you dropped off the check. If you just left it with the office and did not sign the lease documents, they will have to return your money. However, if you signed a lease, you may be liable for your deposit or even some rent, depending on the terms of the contract you signed. You may have also signed, either at the time of application or when you dropped off the second check, a reservationŽ form that holds the unit for you until a lease is fully signed. If this is the case, you will need to review the terms of the reservation to see if you are entitled to a refund. Gary M.

Ive viewed thousands of homes since “ rst licensed as a Realtor in 1979. My wife, Deb, and I have owned nearly a dozen homes. Weve had the bene“ t of learning from our own mistakes and scores of customers. Here are some favorite tips that can save you money and preserve your home-related assets. 1) Dont ” ush ” ushable-cleaning-cloths, also known as baby-wipes. They are advertised as safe to ” ushŽ because they allegedly disintegrate once they are ” ushed. That claim is blatantly false. Instead, they accumulate into large balls in the sewer line that runs from your bathroom to the street, eventually blocking the ” ow from your home to the sewer-lines. Local plumbers charge from $99 to $250 to clear the blockage. If your home does not have a readily-accessible cleanout valve, the plumber will need to haul the heavy equipment to the roof to access the system through a roof-top sewer vent. The weight and motion of the equipment and the plumber on the roof can cause premature wear on shingle roofs. That can precipitate other problems. The growing popularity of these ” ushable cloths is not only costly to homeowners, but water districts as well. Every few years, youll see utility trucks in my neighborhood pumping the sewer systems via the manholes in the center of the street. The operator I queried told me these so calledŽ ” ushable-cloths were the main culprit. 2) Install a whole-house surge protector. I bring this up every few years because it can save you so much money. An electrical contractor can install this next to your main electrical panel for about $250 (parts and labor). It protects every outlet in your home from power surges and lightning strikes. Ive installed them in every house Ive owned since moving to Florida in 1994. Ive met dozens of locals who have had their microwaves, TVs, computers, etc. destroyed by the rapid succession of power spikes that are typical during our daily, summer thunderstorms. Thanks to my reliance on these whole-house-surgeprotectors, I havent lost a single device during the 24 years Ive kept my electronics powered-on during hundreds of wicked thunder storms. That includes a few weeks ago when a Bismarck palm standing 6 yards from my home of“ ce took a direct lightning hit, instantly frying it. 3) Retro“ t your windows with a re” ective tint that re” ects heat and UV rays. This is a lot cheaper than thermal windows. Films are available that block up to 90 percent of the heat, thereby reducing your A/C bills. They also block the UV rays. That protects your carpeting, drapes, and furniture from fading. I prefer the “ lm that creates an external, mirror-like “ nish. It eliminates glare. It also produces a one-way mirror effect. You can clearly see through the window, but outsiders cannot see inside unless its dark outside. 4) Plant trees and shrubs. If your home lacks curb or backyard appeal, the most cost-effective way to remedy this is to plant attractive trees and shrubs. Even small trees and shrubs in 5-gallon buckets can turn into lush landscaping as Floridas subtropical rays and rains supersize them within a few years. Of course, dont plant them under FPL power lines. After IRMA, FPLs trimmer reshaped the majestic oak tree in our front yard into Micky Mouse ears. 5) Turn off the main water line when you travel. Ive seen many instances where the water heater ruptures, ” oods the garage ” oor, and gushes down the street. This potentially damages anything on the ” oor, can wick up the drywall creating mold, and create a surge in your water and electrical bill. By the same token, the water pipes running through your walls will eventually leak while under pressure. You want to be home when this happens. The obvious solution to prevent this water damage is to turn off your main water line when you vacate the home for more than a day. If you rely on the pool girl to keep your pool “ lled while you are gone, dont forget to show her how to turn the water back on while “ lling the pool. 6) Use stainless steel screws instead of steel screws. Floridas humidity quickly turns steel screws to rusty eyesores. The 27-year-old stainless screws in my shower still shine like new. Thats quality.

Page 2 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMES By STEVE BROWNTHE DALLAS MORNING NEWSHome price growth is slowing in almost half of the major U.S. housing markets. The Dallas-Fort Worth area was called out by researchers at Attom Data Solutions as one of the areas where home appreciation is decelerating after years of value gains. North Texas home prices were less than 6 percent higher in the third quarter than they were in the same period last year, Attom Data found. In third quarter 2017, D-FW home prices were up more than 12 percent annually. Along with D-FW, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston and Miami were identified as markets where home cost increases are also dwindling. The continued slowdown in the rate of home price appreciation nationwide and in many local markets is a rational response to worsening home affordability „ which has deteriorated at an accelerated pace this year due to rising mortgage rates,Ž Daren Blomquist, senior vice president at Attom Data Solutions, said in the report. Markets not experiencing this price appreciation cool down may have more of an affordability cushion to work with, but some are in danger of overheating if home price gains continue to run hot.Ž The D-FW area has had the largest percentage increase of home prices of any U.S. metro area. North Texas median home prices are now 86 percent ahead of where they were a decade ago before the housing market crash, Attom Data says. Houston and San Antonio are also on the list of cities that have seen the greatest residential appreciation since the Great Recession. Median home prices are now higher than they were before the economic downturn in almost 70 percent of the markets Attom Data tracks. And the rate of home price appreciation is still accelerating in some metro areas, including San Jose; Boise, Idaho; Las Vegas; San Francisco and Atlanta, the latest housing study finds. And the average nationwide homeownership tenure increased in the third quarter to an all-time high of 8.23 years. In the D-FW area average time owners have stayed in a house is 7.49 years, a new all-time high for as long as we have data,Ž Blomquest said. Homeowners who did decide to sell their properties on average saw $61,232 in gains since they purchased the property „ the largest profits since 2007, Attom Data finds. All-cash purchases accounted for 27 percent of total U.S. single-family home and condo sales in in the third quarter. And only 11.6 percent of all U.S. single-family home and condo sales in the third quarter were distressed properties „ an 11-year low.More US metros are seeing slower home price growth as housing market cools TNS PHOTOA home for sale in the Hollywood Riviera neighborhood of Torrance, California.

Page 4 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018 OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESBy GARY M. SINGERSUN SENTINELQ: We were going to rent a home in a rental community. We filled out the application and left a $250 deposit. A few days later, we were informed that we were accepted and needed to pay an additional $850 for the deposit. We went and left the check but could not finalize the lease because the manager was not at the office. Over the weekend, we decided that we did not want to rent there and called Monday to ask for our money back. They are refusing. Can they keep our money? „ Linda A: No, probably not, or at least not most of it. I am going to use this opportunity to restate some advice that I cannot seem to say enough: Do not sign anything unless and until you read it and understand what it says. If you are not sure what it means, do not sign until you do. I am going to go out on a limb and assume that your initial $250 depositŽ was an application fee,Ž which you agreed to pay somewhere in the fine print of the multi-page application. If this is correct, you have already spent those $250, and they are gone. You should review your copy of the form (always get a copy of everything you sign!) and confirm this. If it was a deposit and not a fee, you should be able to get it back. The $850 check is going to depend on if and what you signed when you dropped off the check. If you just left it with the office and did not sign the lease documents, they will have to return your money. However, if you signed a lease, you may be liable for your deposit or even some rent, depending on the terms of the contract you signed. You may have also signed, either at the time of application or when you dropped off the second check, a reservationŽ form that holds the unit for you until a lease is fully signed. If this is the case, you will need to review the terms of the reservation to see if you are entitled to a refund. Gary M.

Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018VIEWPOINTPublisher „ Glen Nickerson Executive editor „ Jim Gouvellis Editorial page editor „ Stephen Baumann Commentary Editor „ John Hackworth Email letters to THE SUN RECOMMENDS Charlotte County school taxThe importance of the proposed 1 mill Charlotte County school tax referendum cannot be emphasized enough. The Charlotte County School District is asking voters to approve the tax „ equal to $1 for every $1,000 of a homes value „ to enhance the quality of education. The tax is expected to add about $18 million a year to the budget. If approved with a yesŽ vote, it would remain in effect for four years, then be subject to another four-year voter referendum. The additional funding that would come through the 1 mill tax „ the same millage approved repeatedly in recent years by voters in Sarasota County „ would be used to boost salaries for all school staff. It would allow the district to add 30 minutes of instruction to the school day. It would fund additional reading and math coaches. It would do away with the districts payto-play policy. It also would provide money for enhanced security. I look at the opportunities for this money like a threelegged stool,Ž Charlotte Schools Superintendent Steve Dionisio told us recently. We need competitive salaries for everyone, from teachers down to custodians,Ž he said. We have to be able to recruit and retain our (people). We are losing teachers and bus drivers to other districts and that is a problem.Ž It is. Charlotte County now ranks 28th in the state in quality of education. It can and should do better. But to do so, the district needs additional funds to pay its staff properly and to institute new programs and policies aimed at enhancing student performance. Quality of public education is not only a bene“t to students and families but to the wider community that depends on an educated workforce and an economy that must be attractive to new business. We strongly recommend yes.ŽSarasota County Referendum 1: Legacy Trail ExtensionSarasota County is asking to spend up to $65 million from the sale of 20-year bonds to extend the popular Legacy Trail roughly 10 more miles to downtown Sarasota and enhance an off-road bicycle and pedestrian trail in North Port. If approved, the county would buy the remaining rail corridor, rip up the tracks and lay pavement, add overpasses over busy Clark and Bee Ridge roads, install parking, rest stops, benches and rest rooms. In addition, $2 million would be set aside to facilitate connections for North Port residents through Deer Prairie Creek Preserve or the Carlton Preserve. The bottom line for voters is an additional $8 per year for every $100,000 in assessed ad valorem property value. The assessed value includes Homestead exemptions, not the market value. An estimated 225,000 cyclists, joggers and walkers now use the Legacy Trail every year. The numbers would multiply with the connection from South County to North County. The Legacy Trail already makes a unique connection between our communities, which, when extended, would create a 30-mile-long, car-free bicycle and pedestrian network. The North Port enhancements would be the “rst step toward a trail that spans the entire county. Planning for this rails-totrails corridor “rst surfaced in 1991. It is time to complete it. We strongly recommend yes.ŽSarasota County Charter Amendments 2, 3Amendment 2 would raise the percentage of signatures needed to place an amendment on the ballot from 5 percent to 10 percent of all registered voters. The second companion piece would restrict the amount of time citizens groups have to get signatures. In practical terms, the requirement doubles the signature requirement from 15,000 to 30,000. And citizenvolunteers would have less time to do their work. It seems onerous and, frankly, undemocratic. There is no good reason to limit citizen participation and citizen initiatives; they have posed no burden. We recommend noŽ to both.Sarasota County Charter Amendments 4, 5These two proposed amendments were brought by a group called Reopen Beach Road. Amendment 4 would require Sarasota County to reacquire a small segment of Beach Road on Siesta Key and provide maximum right of way use of Beach Road for public access.Ž A companion, Amendment 5, would forbid the county in the future from vacating county-owned rights of way along or abutting any beach, river, creek, canal, lake, bay, gulf access or waterfront vistas.Ž This is small-bore politics, well out of our area. But we see no valid reason to undo the County Commissions decision to vacate the small portion of road when it did. The county was able to get fair conditions, including the right to nonmotorized public access. As for future road vacations, it seems appropriate that commissioners weigh speci“cs in each case and determine the best course of action. We recommend noŽ to both.Sarasota County Charter Amendment 6This Single-Member District Amendment asks if county commissioners should be elected by only those voters residing in the same district in which the commissioner resides.Ž Right now, commissioners in each district are elected by countywide vote. The measure was brought to the ballot in a petition drive led by Sarasota Alliance for Fair Elections, which argues that, with more than 300,000 registered voters, county-wide elections have become so expensive that only well-funded candidates with countywide appeal can win. A single-member district system could bring more diversity to the board; representatives would be more responsive to home-district issues. Perhaps. But our greatest fear is the single-district system would bring with it a provincial, us-against-them approach to governance that doesnt exist in the current system. In addition, while potentially gaining a single district-centric commissioner, voters would cede the opportunity to vote on all “ve. That makes no sense. We recommend no.ŽNorth Port Charter ReferendumNorth Port voters are being asked to approve an overall revision to the City Charter. City of“cials have been working for two years on an update, which primarily tightens up language and includes some bene“cial changes. For instance, one change would reduce the number of signatures to being and ordinance change to the ballot from 10 percent to 5 percent. (See above, Sarasota County amendment that would do the reverse.) Another change clari“es the procedure that takes place when a commissioner steps down. There are no blockbusters here. The rewrite was carefully vetted and deserves support. We recommend yes.ŽCharlotte County Commission District 4Two-term incumbent Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch, a Republican, is being challenged by Democrat Joan Fischer in the Charlotte County Commission District 4 race. Fischer moved to Charlotte County 23 years ago after a career in the health “eld. She is a knowledgeable, articulate candidate who believes red tide and water quality are two big issues. She also believes the commission hasnt handled development properly. Deutsch has been a steady, solid member of an excellent County Commission. He has taken a special interest in veterans. He also helped the commission reach consensus on Manasota Beach renourishment and enact a long-range sewer extension plan. One strength, we believe, is his ability to get commissioners to look at both sides of a con”ict and bring compromise. He communicates well with constituents and is a hard worker. Deutsch likes to boast that he has never missed a meeting. We believe it. We recommend Stephen R. Deutsch. Charlotte County School Board District 1Cara Reynolds fell less than 100 votes short of winning the District 1 seat outright in a three-way race contest and now faces Cathy Janiak straight up. Both have strong teaching backgrounds and offer voters experience and knowledge of the inner workings of schools. Janiak moved to Charlotte County and began teaching in 1979. In the primary, she said she would ask that each School Board member spend a day each month in the classroom. She maintains the School Board lacks a vision and transparency and promises to work to remedy both those shortcomings. Reynolds left the classroom to help her husband begin WrightWay Emergency Water Removal. She wants to raise teachers salaries, contending too many teachers are leaving the district for better jobs. She also said there are too many tests and that programs like I-Ready have been taken too far and are not effective. Reynolds said she believes School Board meetings should be live streamed for people who cannot attend. She has faith if the referendum passes that a proposed “nancial advisory committee will oversee how the money is spent. We recommend Cara Reynolds.Charlotte County Airport Authority District 4Longtime Authority member Kathleen Coppola, a Republican, is being challenged by Joseph Makray, no-party-af“liation candidate who stayed in the race only after a like-minded colleague lost the Republican primary. Makray declined an interview with the Suns editorial board. He has raised little money, calling into question his credibility. Coppola said she wanted one more term on the board to help oversee the airports makeover. A master plan outlines 66 proposed projects planned over the course of the next 20 years. She also points to the transformation of the airport „ especially since Hurricane Charley „ as proof of the difference she has helped usher in during her tenure on the board. We recommend Kathleen Coppola.Punta Gorda City Council District 2Incumbent Punta Gorda City Council member Rachel Keesling, the current mayor, is facing her “rst challenge in eight years on the board, Debby Carey. Carey, who moved here almost seven years ago, has been president of the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association „ a 3,800-member strong group with 44 social clubs. Carey believes the city has spent too much of its reserves, and not always wisely. She is against a land-use change to allow 84-foot-tall buildings downtown. Keesling, who has lived in Punta Gorda for 25 years, said there are numerous problems that need solved in the city and she wants another term to try to “x them. The budget is the greatest challenge, she said, and pointed to “nding a successor for longtime City Manager Howard Kunik. She favors redoing the city master plan and thought a private/public partnership might work at the vacant City Marketplace. One of Keeslings strengths comes from her relationships with other governments through the Florida League of Cities. She is president of that group. We recommend Rachel Keesling.Sarasota County Commission District 4Incumbent Commissioner Al Maio of Nokomis, a Republican, faces a challenge from Wesley Anne Beggs, a Sarasota Democrat. Beggs is a recent New College graduate whose focus is on land use, development and the environment. She maintains the commission has been overly friendly to development interests. Maio is a former businessman, accountant and planner who was a principal owner of Kimley-Horn & Associates. He led the team that planned and designed West Villages and organized the annexation of much of a 10,000-acre ranch into North Port. He also currently serves as vice chairman of the regional transportation authority that has oversight for state road projects and is chairman of the board of the Peace River Water Authority. In that capacity, has focused on the purchase of the large Orange Hammock Ranch at the far-eastern end of North Port. He also has been closely involved in planning to widen River Road, which “nally seems to be taking signi“cant strides. Maio has experience and knowledge of the intricacies of local government. He is a South County resident with proven service to his community. We recommend Al Maio. THE SUN RECOMMENDS I 15


The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018 E/N/C Page 7VIEWPOINTSarasota County Commission District 2Republican Christian Ziegler and Democrat Ruta Maria Jouniari are angling for the open seat from northern Sarasota County. Ziegler is already a veteran Republican Party operative and worked for U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Longboat Key, before moving into digital marketing and consulting service. His top priorities are keeping taxes low, protecting the environment and making Sarasota County attractive for business. Jouniari left the corporate world years ago to start an international staf“ ng company that works closely with the Department of Defense. She also founded a free medical clinic, the Universal Crescent Clinic, which recently set up a one-day tent cityŽ in North Port for the uninsured. She told us she was fed up with the over-development and lack of planningŽ in Sarasota County. Protecting the environment and preserving what remains of agriculture in the eastern part of the county were also priorities. Ziegler emphasizes conservative credentials and Republican contacts. All positives. But we also liked Jouniaris business experience, her volunteer work and her independence. We recommend Ruta Maria Jouniari.North Port City Commission District 4This race pits someone with decades of experience inside local government, Pete Emrich, against someone who is relatively new to the process, Kevin Rouse. Emrich has lived in North Port for three decades and formerly worked as the citys landscape supervisor for 20 years. That experience is his strong suit. He said he would tighten up spending on various projects, felt more could be done at Warm Mineral Springs and was queasy about costs associated with the new city aquatic center. Rouse is a former longtime “ re“ ghter/EMS for Charlotte County who has lived in North Port for 18 years. He supported the aquatic center, but also thought the city was rushing into construction. Rouse also thought a primitive campground for eco-tourism might work at the Springs site. He also thought options for redevelopment could be put to voter referendum. Rouse is a credible candidate, but, on balance, we were swayed by Emrichs determination and experience. We recommend Pete Emrich.North Port City Commission District 5Two outstanding candidates are competing for the District 5 seat, incumbent Commissioner Jill Luke and “ rst-time candidate Peter Bartolotta. Both well-regarded, community-minded North Porters with strong ties to the business community. Luke cast the deciding vote in favor of contributing city funds for the new spring training ballpark in West Villages. She has been a strong advocate for the Myakkahatchee Creek Greenway project. She supported the plan to preserve 20 acres of city-owned property surrounding Warm Mineral Springs, and also favored preserving the existing spa building. Bartolotta is wellknown for his work in economic development. He was a member of the original North Port Economic Development Advisory Board and later formed the private North Port Economic Development Corp. He was a founder of Vision North Port, which led residents through the writing of a citizens master plan.Ž Bartolotta wants to enhance the economic potential of Warm Mineral Springs, build a medical city of the futureŽ and create an entertainment hub on a large piece of property. Our editorial board liked both candidates very much: Lukes lowkey focus on projects and constituents, and Bartolottas enthusiasm and big-picture vision. In the end, we thought it was a toss-up. No recommendation.U.S. House District 17The sudden death of Democratic House candidate April Freeman on Sept. 23 left Republican Greg Steube of Sarasota a clear path to the House seat from the sprawling district that includes Charlotte and DeSoto counties and southern Sarasota County. Freemans name is still on the ballot, but Democrats have selected Allen Ellison of Highlands County to replace her, if the unexpected occurs. This is a heavily Republican district, so that is believed to be unlikely. Steube is currently a state senator from Sarasota. He is an Army veteran and a lawyer who survived a heated primary to reach the General Election. The seat is currently held by Rep. Tom Rooney, who is retiring. He is an ardent guns rights advocate, having been the prime sponsor of many bills in the state Legislature which would have eased gun control. We have strongly opposed most, if not all. No recommendation.Florida Senate District 23Well-known Republican Party stalwart Rep. Joe Gruters, District 73-Sarasota, faces political newcomer Faith Olivia Babis, a Democrat, in the race for Steubes seat in the state Senate. Babis, who is disabled herself, is a disability rights advocate. She has campaigned for expanded Medicaid coverage and social services. She is a strong advocate for environmental protection and believes lax policies have contributed to the red tide outbreak. She also opposes school vouchers. Gruters is wellconnected and active in Republican politics. He is the longtime chairman of the Sarasota County GOP and was co-chair of President Trumps Florida campaign. Gruters told us protecting the environment was critical, but job growth and the economy topped his list of priorities. Gruters wants to fund more research into red tide and take bigger steps toward “ xing Lake Okkechobee. Gruters sponsored legislation that would impose the E-Verify system on employers in order to discourage illegal immigration. He wants less school testing. He also suggested a district like Sarasota should be able to create a pilot project with alternative testing that would relieve teach-to-the-test pressure. We felt both candidates represented their respective parties positions well but made no recommendation. No recommendation.State Senate District 26First-time of“ ce seeker and Democrat Catherine Price is taking on veteran Republican politician Ben Albritton for the seat vacated by Sen. Denise Grimsley. Price calls herself an ordinary citizen who is not in someones pocket.Ž The Lake Wales candidate, who has a nursing degree, said she decided to run because she could not talk anyone else into taking on Albritton and his strong Republican supporters. The environment is her passion. Price said Republicans are attempting to thwart any attempt to raise taxes to help fund health care, schools or environmental protection, and she contends there needs to be more of a focus on agriculture and small business owners. Albritton has eight years experience in the Florida House. He supported spending more on research to counter red tide. He also believes beach renourishment is a big issue and that it is appropriate for each community to help with the funding. We recommend Catherine Price.State House District 74 Newcomer Tony Mowry, a Democrat, faces newcomer James Buchanan, a Republican, in the race for the House District 74 seat left open by the departure of twoterm Rep. Julio Gonzalez of Venice. Mowry, who grew up in Venice, served as an active reservist JAG with the U.S. Air Force for six years now specializes in elder law at a law “ rm in downtown Venice. He said environmental protection is a priority. I was talking about the environment and about Everglades restoration long before the summer of tide tide,Ž Mowry told us. Mowry also was critical of the Legislatures penchant for drainingŽ the Florida Forever Trust Fund. Buchanan is the son of U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan and ran earlier this year for a House seat from northern Sarasota County. He lost and turned his sights south. He is a real estate broker who recently bought a home in the district. He told us he was willing to work across party lines.Ž Buchanan opposes offshore oil and gas drilling. He expressed concern about the environment, and noted the problems of red tide and Lake Okeechobee ” ow. A top local priority is the build-out of River Road. We felt Mowry had a stronger feel for South County and were impressed with his knowledge of issues affecting senior citiznes. We recommend Tony Mowry.THE SUN RECOMMENDSFROM PAGE 14 Coming Monday: Recommendations on proposed constitutional amendments.

Page 8 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESBy MARION PUTMANSUN CORRESPONDENTPORT CHARLOTTE „ At Charlotte Countys annual Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremony, local Jewish and Christian ministers and community members gather to light 11 candles. They symbolize each million of the 6 million Jewish men, women and children „ and 5 million non-Jews „ murdered more than 70 years ago under Hitlers Third Reich. Friday evening, those 11 ”ames cast their light once more over the approximately 200 members and community guests in Temple Shaloms sanctuary. But this time, the lives they honored were lost just shy of a week ago, with each of the 11 candles honoring a victim of the Oct. 27 massacre at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvanias Squirrel Hill neighborhood. The prospect that the old ghost of anti-Semitism could be back to haunt us once again, especially less than 70 years after the Holocaust is inconceivable, it is frightening,Ž noted Temple Shaloms Rabbi Solomon Agin. It was not too long ago when we believed that anti-Semitism was a disease that was “nally eradicated. After the Holocaust, the globe was a less terrible place for a while. Countries recalled in horror to the evil that humanity was capable of. But I am afraid that that lesson has begun to fade away over time. We have seen a dark side of humanity begin to emerge again. And we ought to all be concerned. This tragedy and our service this evening is about us coming together in the face of hate,Ž Agin said. It transcends all our political posturing and our polarized discourse. The brutal attack on the Jewish community is about 11 beautiful souls who lost their lives at the hand of a crazed, anti-Semitic bigot. Tonight we pray for the victims and grieve with their families.Ž Much like the local interfaith Holocaust Remembrance Services of recent years, joining Agin at Friday evenings memorial were four local Christian ministers „ the Rev. Mike Loomis, senior pastor, and the Rev. Bob Carlson, assistant pastor, both from First United Methodist Church of Punta Gorda; the Rev. Bill Frank, senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Punta Gorda; and the Rev. George Cooks, assistant pastor of First Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church of Punta Gorda. Each pastor took a turn lighting candles to remember those lost at Tree of Life, honoring the blessings of their lives, and offering a few words of their own. Many who claimed to be Christians who persecuted the Jews „ they were not true Christians,Ž Carlson said after lighting candles to honor brothers Cecil and David Rosenthal, along with Joyce Feinberg. I dont understand that,Ž he added, noting he believed Satans hatred of Gods chosen people is what has driven the anti-Semitism throughout history. Agin added a pair of candles to the 11. Those two honored the shooting victims from Oct. 24 at the Kroger supermarket in Jeffersontown, Kentucky (a Louisville suburb), where the alleged killer reportedly tried, unsuccessfully, beforehand to break into a predominately black Baptist church. With this case, too, being investigated as a possible hate crime, Agin felt it important to honor the lives sacri“ced there, too, due merely to the color of their skin. The impact of what happened at Tree of Life is being felt all across the nation,Ž according to Nancy Baron-Baer, regional director of the Anti-Defamation League based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who attended Fridays service with her college roommate. Hate rears its ugly head again and again and again.Ž However, she noted, Its the most heartwarming feeling to come here as a guest, to see different religions, different races all joining together with a common bond of simply being human beings, understanding loss and love.Ž So all of us must call out hatred wherever we see it,Ž Agin said. It is encouraging that protests against Neo-Nazis actually bring out bigger numbers than the racists can muster themselves. I am touched, grateful and humbled by the outpouring of support from so many in our community.Ž But he left that community with this charge: History teaches us that we cannot let our guard down. Complacency is not an option. When people are silent, evil ”ourishes. And it is foolish for us to think that the scourge of hatred cannot strike here as well „ unless good people, like all of you, speak up against evil. When we do that, evil shies away, and goes back to the shadows, where it belongs. I have this message for the haters: Living under the shadows of threats has been part and parcel to the Jewish identity for thousands of years. The Jewish people have been around for 4,000 years. We are not going anywhere.ŽComing together in the face of hateLocal memorial held for synagogue shooting victims SUN PHOTOS BY MARION PUTNAMThe Rev.

OBITUARIESBy WARREN RICHARDSONSUN CORRESPONDENTSARASOTA „ With Tuesdays general election just days away, supporters of the Legacy Trail referendum have gone all out to ensure its passage. According to the latest “nancial disclosures “led with Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections Ron Turners of“ce, the group Vote Yes for the Sarasota County Legacy Trail Extension has raised $84,572.50 as of Nov. 2 in support of their cause. In addition, the group also reported receiving $80,593 in in-kind contributions, bringing its total “nancial support to $165,165.50 versus $76,323 in expenditures as of Nov. 2. The question on Tuesdays ballot asks voters to allow Sarasota County of“cials to borrow up to $65 million to purchase an additional 6 miles of abandoned railroad corridor to extend the Legacy Trail into downtown Sarasota. In December, the county completed the purchase of almost 3 miles of the entire 9-mile abandoned corridor, which runs from Culverhouse Nature Park to Payne Park in downtown Sarasota. Because the entire purchase price exceeded the countys ability to pay, county commissioners opted to split the purchase, leaving the question of purchasing the larger segment to the voters. A referendum is necessary since the purchase price exceeds the $22.6 million limitation in the countys charter on the countys borrowing power without voter approval. Through email, Andrea Seager, co-chair of the committee, wrote that the group had received few negative comments regarding the referendum and remained hopeful that it will pass. We have heard tremendous positive feedback from Sarasota County residents who are thrilled with the idea of a safe 30-mile trail system running from North Port to Sarasota,Ž Seager wrote. On the groups Facebook page, for example, Nancy Evate wrote: The Legacy Trail provides healthy recreation, increased tourism and commerce to the area. There are no downsides to extending this wonderful asset.Ž Late last year, the Friends of the Legacy Trail started a so-called Square Foot Campaign to fund construction of the “rst three-miles of the extension, along with amenities. Donors receive a certi“cate of appreciation and a GPS location of their square foot. As of Nov. 1, the campaign has raised $57,107 from 531 donors. According to former county Parks Director Carolyn Brown, the county would issue bonds in two phases if voters approve the referendum. The “rst series of bonds would be issued in 2019 in the amount of $35 million. That would cover the acquisition costs of the next segment at $30.1 million and design and engineering work. The latter would include work on connections to the trail in Venice and North Port. A closing for the purchase of the northernmost segment is set for next May, contingent upon voter approval of the referendum. The second series of bonds would be issued in 2020 in the amount of $30 million which would be used to construct the extension of the trail. According to estimates by the countys budget staff, approval of the referendum would result in a property tax increase of $16 on a home with a taxable value of $200,000. Brown has said that the total amount needed could be reduced, depending upon the amount of grants the county could obtain. Seager said the group has worked non-stop for the past year to educate people about the trail and the referendum and have spoken to hundreds of thousands of people across the county. The only thing that would make it more amazing is if you could ride all the way to downtown Sarasota and connect to North Port,Ž wrote Pegeen Hanrahan on the Facebook page after a recent ride on the trail.Email: jondaltonwr@gmail.comLegacy Trail supporters hopeful for referendumVote Yes group has raised about $85K for cause PHOTO BY VIVIAN BRIDGESMore multi-use recreational trails, like The Legacy Trail, are being planned in the West Villages and South Sarasota County region.

Page 12 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMES Local humane societies should be a strong voice for the protection of animals. Even though their missions may vary, their goals advocating for the humane treatment of animals and expressed opposition to animal cruelty can be similar. Each local humane society is independent of each other, having their own Board of Directors or Trustees, their own mission statement and by-laws. Local humane societies are not governed by, under the jurisdiction of, or funded by The Humane Society of the United States, American Humane Association or the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). With few exceptions, the animals sheltered by local humane societies are dogs, cats, rabbits and small critters. Like Suncoast Humane Society, most of their programs are designed to help companion animals. With this said, it should not deter them from being a strong voice for the protection of all animals. An effective way for an organization to present a uni“ed voice for animals is to develop and adopt written position statements, approved by their Board, citing their stand on activities involving the use of animals. Most local humane societies do not have the “nances or resources to lobby or become actively involved in opposing animal exploitation or cruelty. National animal protection organizations are counted on to provide this support, along with some state animal welfare federations. A position statement, however, does allow them to have an of“cial voice. It puts them on record as an organization. It also gives their Board, staff and volunteers a direction when expressing views. These position statements also serve to educate donors and the community as a whole regarding activities that pose a danger to animals. Suncoast Humane Societys website, www., lists over 20 individual animal-related activities the organization opposes. These positions are based on the following criteria. € Causes harm or suffering without concern for the welfare of the animal. € Exploits animals for the purpose of entertainment without education. € Shows a lack of respect for the species. As a general statement, Suncoast Humane Society stands opposed to any activity where animals are abused, neglected, or exploited. Relief is encouraged through legislation and education. Sadly, abuse, neglect and exploitation exists in many organized animal-related activities. Although illegal in all states, brutal dog and cock fighting thrives in many areas of the country. Strangely, it is advertised as sport in underground magazines. These poor animals are forced into a life, and death, that is barbaric, violent and inhumane. Certain other activities that harm animals, but are less obvious to some of us, are because the cruelties are masked or happen behind the scenes. Some of these activities include performing circus animals, bronc riding, bull riding and calf roping at rodeos, and dog racing. Even with the unified voice of a humane society, the most important voice out there may be yours! Legislators and decision makers usually know that a humane society will be fighting for the rights of animals. It is you they want to hear from. And just think, it may be your strong voice that actually makes a difference for animals.Humane Societies: A strong voice for animals Phil SNYDERSuncoast Humane Society Adult sailing classLearn to sail or refresh your skills with Englewood Sailing Associations Adult Snowbird Class for those 18 and over.

The Alzheimers Association says that more than “ve million Americans are living with Alzheimers disease and other dementias. By 2050, that number could rise to as high as 16 million people. More than 747,000 Canadians are living with Alzheimers or another dementia, says the Canadian Alzheimers Association. Although there is no de“nitive way to prevent dementia, living a long, vibrant life may be possible by encouraging some healthy habits for the brain. It is never too late or too early to begin health and lifestyle changes. Exercise Becoming more active can improve brain volume, reduce risk for dementia and improve thinking and memory skills. The journal Neurology found that older people who vigorously exercise performed better on cognitive tests than others of the same age, placing them at the equivalent of 10 years younger. Increased blood ”ow that occurs with physical activity may help generate new neurons in the hippocampus, an area of the brain involved with learning and memory. The Harvard Medical School says aerobic exercise may help improve brain tissue by improving blood ”ow and reducing the chances of injury to the brain from cholesterol buildup in blood vessels. Quit smoking The Alzheimers Association indicates that evidence shows smoking increases the risk of cognitive decline. Smoking can impair blood ”ow to the brain and cause small strokes that may damage blood vessels. Eat healthy foods Foods that are good for the heart and blood vessels also are good for the brain. These include fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, “sh-based proteins, unsaturated fats, and foods containing omega-3 fatty acids. Neurologists state that, while research on diet and cognitive function is limited, diets, such as Mediterranean and Mediterranean-DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension), may contribute to a lower risk of cognitive issues. Consume caffeine Caffeine may help boost memory performance and brain health. A Journal of Nutrition study found people ages 70 and older who consumed more caffeine scored better on tests of mental function than those who consumed less caffeine. Caffeine may help improve attention span, cognitive function and feelings of well-being. Information from Psychology Today also indicates caffeine may help in the storage of dopamine, which can Health & Hope DanMEARNSC PROVIDED BY MCCChange plays a big role in the aging process. As adults age, both their minds and bodies undergo changes. The changes associated with aging are not uniform. Some people may experience small changes as they inch toward and ultimately pass retirement age, while others may undergo changes that affect nearly every aspect of their lives. Cognitive decline is the type of age-related change that can have a dramatic impact on a persons life, affecting his or her ability to live independently. A general term used to describe symptoms associated with a decline in memory or thinking skills such as judgment and reasoning, dementia is often mistaken as a normal part of aging. However, the Alzheimers Foundation of America notes that dementia-related illnesses, including Alzheimers disease, are not a normal part of aging. Because many people associate memory loss with aging, they may be compelled to accept some of the early signs and symptoms of Alzheimers as mere byproducts of growing older. However, the Alzheimers Association urges men and women to report any of these 10 early signs and symptoms of Alzheimers to their physicians the moment theyre noticed. Family members who notice these signs in their relatives also should report them to their loved ones physicians. 1. Memory loss that disrupts daily life: Examples of this symptom include forgetting recently learned information; forgetting important dates and events; and asking for the same information over and over. 2. Challenges in planning or solving problems: Someone exhibiting this symptom may have trouble following a recipe or paying monthly bills. 3. Dif“culty completing familiar tasks at home at work or at leisure: Forgetting the rules of a favorite game or experiencing trouble driving to a familiar location are some examples of this symptom. 4. Confusion with time or place: People with Alzheimers lose track of dates, seasons and the passage of time. 5.

The “ndings may provide a window into the roots of dementia, for which high blood pressure is considered a risk factor. We wondered ƒ is there perhaps some signal early in life that tells us high blood pressure is bad for you throughout your entire life?Ž said Dr. Arfan Ikram, lead author of the Dutch study published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Heart Association. It looked at a group of 5,853 children and 5,187 adults. The average age was about 6 among the kids and 62 for adults. Researchers assessed each participants blood pressure and arterial stiffness, which is the loss of elasticity in arteries and often considered a sign of aging, vascular disease or both. They also examined cognitive function for both groups. The children were given a set of non-verbal assessments of their abstract reasoning and spatial visualization skills. The results were converted to an IQ score. Adults took “ve cognition tests that measured a broader range of aptitudes ranging from memory to mental dexterity. The condition of blood vessels played a role in the results for both groups „ but in different ways. Among adults, greater arterial stiffness and higher blood pressure were associated with lower cognition. In children, higher diastolic blood pressure „ the bottom number in a blood pressure reading „ was linked with lower IQ scores. But Ikram cautioned this association was a subtle one. This doesnt mean we now need to start ƒ doing some kind of intervention at that age,Ž said Ikram, chair of the epidemiology department at Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, Netherlands. What the “ndings really mean is that we can say, Hey, the origins of when blood pressure might start affecting the brain lies really early in life.Ž The American Heart Association recommends children have their blood pressure checked once a year. For adults, the recommendation is at least once every two years if blood pressure is normal and more often if its above normal. Ikram said parents and adults in general should make prevention a priority. For instance, you can make sure blood pressure doesnt increase through lifestyle interventions, especially regular physical activity or reduced salt intake,Ž he said. We really need to make sure such things start early in life and not when people are, say, 40 or 50 years of age and thinking, I need to make sure my health is maintained, because Im starting to suffer from various ailments.Ž About 50 million people worldwide have dementia, with nearly 10 million new cases each year, according to the World Health Organization. Past studies have found links to high blood pressure and other cardiovascular risks. Most related research focuses on older adults, although some emerging studies include data on middle-aged patients, said Angela Jefferson, a neurology professor and director of the Vanderbilt Memory and Alzheimers Center at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. The inclusion of a younger population of children taken together with the middle-aged adults offers interesting information about how blood pressure and arterial health relate to brain health,Ž said Jefferson, who was not involved in the study. The use of different cognition tests for the two study groups makes it a little dif“cult to compare the results exactly, she said. But because childrens brains continue to develop until the late teens, we use different tests to assess their cognitive health.Ž Whats more signi“cant is tracking the precise timing of when aging and disease affect the bodys arterial blood supplyŽ and the impact that has on the brain, Jefferson said. If we can p inpoint the window of intervention, we can make a stronger effort to improve cardiovascular health and reduce complications on brain health, cognition and presumably dementia,Ž she said.Cardiovascular health may impact brain function as early as childhood PHOTO PROVIDEDCardiovascular health may impact brain function as early as childhood. education from experts in joint, spine and cardiac care and physical therapy.

Learn more about Alzheimers disease at PAGE 1 PROVIDED BY MCCAlzheimers disease, the most common form of dementia, is often mistaken as something that only affects aging men and women. While the Alzheimers Association¨ notes that age is the biggest risk factor for Alzheimers, the group also warns that even men and women nowhere close to retirement age can develop the disease. In fact, the Alzheimers Association reports that, in the United States alone, roughly 200,000 people under the age of 65 have early-onset Alzheimers disease. According to the Alzheimers Association, many people with earlyonset are in their 40s and 50s. Recognizing that Alzheimers is not just for retirees but capable of affecting younger men and women with families and careers is important, as the Alzheimers Association points out that healthcare providers typically do not look for signs or symptoms of Alzheimers in young people. In such people, symptoms of Alzheimers may be incorrectly attributed to stress. Adults who suspect they might be suffering from early-onset Alzheimers should have a comprehensive medical evaluation, which may include a neurological exam and/or brain imaging, conducted by a physician who specializes in Alzheimers disease.Alzheimers disease is often mistaken as something that only aects aging men and women www.PantherHollowDental.com19240 Quesada Avenue Port Charlotte, FL 33948(941) 743-7435adno=3618144-1 PANTHER HOLLOW DENTAL LODGE Panther Hollow Dental Lodge is where experienced, trustworthy and compassionate dentistry occurs.

Page 4 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018By RUSTY PRAYFEELING FIT CORRESPONDENTCarol Weston sang along with American Pie.Ž Joining in on and good old boys were drinking whiskey and ryeŽ is not usually part of her day. But this day was different. This was a day to let go „ even if it was just for the chorus to a familiar song „ and relax. This was a day for the music to play. So, Carol sat back aboard the King Fisher Fleet sightseeing boat and sang with Shawn Brown, who provided the entertainment for the 17th annual Caregivers Cruise, a 90-minute voyage on Charlotte Harbor for nonpaid caregivers. Its sponsored by OCEAN (Our Charlotte Elder Affairs Network), a coalition of public and private health, human and social service organizations that serves as a resource for Charlotte County seniors. Carols day usually starts with a shower before the alarm goes off at 6:30 a.m. and her husband, Denis, wakes up. Denis, 77, a retired teaching pastor, has Alzheimers. If she doesnt shower before he wakes, she wont. And then the daily routine begins. He doesnt want to get out of bed,Ž she recited. He goes to adult day care, so I tell him he has to get up and get ready to go. He says, Where am I going? Now you have to have your shower. He has breakfast, and I help him get dressed. By the time he gets ready to leave, Im already burned out. And its 9:30 in the morning.Ž Carols story is not out of the ordinary for a caregiver of someone with Alzheimers or dementia, brain trauma or motor impairment. There were 72 others on the boats two decks who knew exactly what she was talking about. They were treated by eight OCEAN members to the complimentary cruise, lunch, goody bags packed with information and Browns inspired song selection. Complimentary respite care for anyone who attended and did not have that available also was provided. Its our way of giving nonpaid caregivers a leisurely afternoon on the water,Ž said Ami Conti, OCEAN vice president. Carol and Denis have lived in Port Charlotte for “ve years. He was diagnosed two years ago. She and their two sons had hoped that the progression would be a slow one, and that longterm care would be years away. But then, about a year ago, Denis fell and hit his head, and that really accelerated it.Ž So often with Alzheimers, its the little things that lead to a diagnosis. That was true in the case of Carol and Denis when she noticed he began making errors in his teaching with Southwest Florida Bible Institute. He was teaching the Last Week of Jesus „ a course he createdŽ „ and he was making mistakes. They werent critical mistakes, but I knew what should have been. He just wasnt his usual self, but you dont think its anything. You rationalize its something else thats doing it.Ž Their 49th wedding anniversary just passed; Denis didnt remember. Alzheimers not only affects memory and the person trying to cope with that loss, it changes roles. I was used to being the one catered to,Ž said Carol, 68. Now the shoes on the other foot. Now Im doing all the driving. Im doing everything. Because he cant.Ž For a short while, Carol and he other caregivers were provided an escape. She sat next to friend Cindy Chicmacia on the second deck, enjoyed the breeze, munched on lunch and sang along with Brown. I think it was really good,Ž Carol said as the cruise concluded. Its nice to sit back and be spoiled for an hour and a half. You kind of forget your cares.Ž Chicmacia leaned over. Its a little getaway,Ž she whispered conspiratorially. I wish it was longer.ŽA day for the music to play Dee Prescott, foreground, and Val Rankin lead dancing in the aisles during the Caregivers Cruise.

She sobbed her way through the program, just sobbed. She just couldnt stand the pain. I saw an incredible change in her. A few weeks in, she slapped her lap and said, Im sick of this. Im sick of the pain. Im sick of the loneliness. Im going to do whatever it takes to get through it.Ž That woman will be volunteering for the upcoming eighth session of Grief Share. Grief Share is the second half of a two-pronged approach to providing guidance to those who are lost in grief. The “ rst is a free half-day seminar called Surviving the Holidays. Focused on Thanksgiving and Christmas, the annual seminar will be offered from 9 a.m. to noon Nov. 17 in the Life Center of the 1st United Methodist Church of Punta Gorda, 507 W. Marion Ave. The deadline for registration is Nov. 12. The seminar comes with a full breakfast. Sixty-seven people attended last years seminar. Its for anyone who has lost a loved one within the last week, the last month, the last year, the last 10 years,Ž Austin said. Theyre faced with, How am I going to get through the holidays? Everyone else is merry and bright and having this wonderful time with family and friends, and my world has ended. How am I going to survive? The pain seems to be magni“ ed because everyone else is having a good time. People think theres something wrong with them because they cant get into the spirit. Of course they cant. Theyre grieving. This seminar can give them hope. We will walk this journey with themŽ The seminar can be used as a lead-in to Grief Share, a 13-week support program where people meet in groups to assist one another. The program starts Jan. 8 with a twohour session beginning at 6:30 p.m. It also will be offered from 10 a.m. to noon on Wednesdays beginning Jan. 9. There is no charge; however, the accompanying workbook costs $20. Scholarships are available. The seminar and program are faith-based, but a person need not be a member of the church or follow a speci“ c spiritual dogma. Austin became involved seven years ago after her husband and daughter died within a month of each other. I was a basket case,Ž she said. I stuffed it, because Id always been real strong. My kids would say, Wow, Mom, youre so strong. And it was a lie. I was dying inside.Ž A friend recommended she attend Grief Share, a network of churches that offers help to people struggling with grief. This isnt my ministry,Ž Austin said. Its Gods. Im just the middle man. But I get to see incredible miracles.Ž To register, contact Austin at 941-639-4402, or email melharryaustin@ For more information, go to www. aims to help grieving survive holidays IF YOU GOA free half-day seminar called Surviving the Holidays, focused on Thanksgiving and Christmas, will be offered from 9 a.m. to noon on Nov. 17, in the Life Center of the 1st United Methodist Church of Punta Gorda, 507 W.

The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018 E/N/C Page 7PROVIDED BY MCCPuzzles are fun and entertaining, but their benefits go beyond simple recreation. In fact, playing and solving puzzles on a regular basis can benefit adults and children in various ways. Puzzles often stimulate problem-solving centers in the brain and can improve brain health. Researchers have found that, by completing crossword puzzles, playing challenging games or doing other puzzle-related activities, individuals may be less likely to develop brain plaques that have been tied to Alzheimers disease. Data published in the Archives of Neurology found a distinct connection between people who exercised their minds with stimulating activities in their early and middle years and brain health. This group had less Betaamyloid protein uptake in their brains, which is linked to the onset of Alzheimers, than those who didnt engage in puzzles during the same time frame. Beyond their health bene“ ts, puzzles offer some additional perks. € Puzzles boost vocabulary. Puzzles such as crosswords or codewords/ cryptograms introduce people to new words. This helps people expand their vocabulary and can help them improve their spelling. € Puzzles teach patience. Puzzles can be challenging, and such challenges can promote patience in regard to approaching and realizing goals. € Puzzles can reinforce lessons. Teaching through puzzle play is an effective way to tap into memory retention while making lessons fun. € Puzzles may improve intelligence. Engaging in puzzles can force players to think and reason using general knowledge, memory, spatial imagery, and logic. These skills help to sharpen intellect over time. Researchers at the University of Michigan even found that adults could boost their IQs by four points after spending 25 minutes a day doing puzzles. € Puzzles reinforce concentration. Concentration is required to find words hidden in a word search puzzle or to solve a brainteaser. According to data on, puzzles naturally induce a state of creative, focused meditation. € Puzzles improve visual-spatial reasoning. When solving a jigsaw puzzle or working ones way through a maze, players have to look at different shapes and “ gure out where they “ t within the larger picture. Better visual-spacial skills can help with packing, driving and using a map and can be valuable career tools in fields such as architecture. Puzzles are a fun recreational activity that also can boost brain health.How puzzles promote health and wellness PHOTO PROVIDEDPuzzles often stimulate problem-solving centers in the brain and can improve brain health.Alzheimers support groupsThe Alzheimers Association holds monthly caregiver suapport groups for spouses, adult children and family members who want to connect and share insight with others in similar situations.

In addition, compounds in cocoa and coffee beans may improve vascular health and help repair cellular damage due to high antioxidant levels. Work the brain Engaging in mentally stimulating activities can create new brain connections and more backup circuits, states Dr. Joel Salinas, a neurologist at Harvardaffiliated Massachusetts General Hospital. Working the brain through puzzles, reading and participating in social situations can stimulate the release of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a molecule essential for repairing brain cells and creating connections between them. A good way to combine these lifestyle factors is to take an exercise class with friends, mixing the social, stimulation and exercise recommendations together. Cognitive decline can come with aging, but through healthy habits, people can reduce their risk of memory loss and dementia.BRAINFROM PAGE 1 €Affordable Options and Savings€Worldwide Travel Protection €Veterans Bene“ts€Avoid Hidden Society Fees €Complimentary Personal Planning Guide€Customized Packages and Terms CONSIDERING PLANNING AHEAD?CREMATION/FUNERAL SERVICES?

Page 8 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018By DAN MEARNSFEELING FIT CORRESPONDENTAlzheimers Ambassador Melissa Vanderbilt-Bestor, community outreach coordinator with The Springs at South Biscayne, traveled to Tallahassee in January and spoke with legislators about making Alzheimers a top state priority. She was one of more than 40 delegates from South Florida at the Rally in TallyŽ sponsored by the Alzheimers Association of Florida, Vanderbilt-Bestor is going back to Tallahassee, and this time she will be accompanied by two members of her Congressional Team: Jessica Cantwell of the Life Care Center of Punta Gorda and Tanyah Lockett of Royal Palm Retirement Center. The two were sworn in during a special event at The Springs at South Biscayne on Sept. 9. I am very honored to have two women who are as passionate about this disease as I am,Ž she said, and together we can make a difference in the lives we touch. Darla Vient, representing Congressman Thomas Rooney, came to town to oversee the swearing in ceremony of Cantwell and Lockett. Cyrena Duncan, Public Policy Manager of the Alzheimers Association, led the two in a pledge of support and commitment to the Congressional Team. After the teams Tallahassee mission in February, VanderbiltBestor will be heading to Washington, D.C. at end of March, continuing, as she says, to speak for those who cant.Ž Vanderbilt-Bestor, Cantwell and Lockett were all on the committee responsible for The Walk to End Alzheimers, which took place at Lashley Park on Oct. 6. Our goal was to raise $50.000 this year,Ž said Vanderbilt-Bestor, but thanks to all those who came out to support this event, $53,900 was raised.Ž Vanderbilt-Bestor cited some facts about Alzheimers, noting that there are over 10,000 estimated cases of the disease in Charlotte County. Currently, 5.7 million Americans are living with Alzheimers and by 2050, that number is projected to reach nearly 14 million. One in three seniors dies with Alzheimers or other dementia,Ž she said. It kills more people than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. Every 65 seconds, someone in the United States develops the disease.Ž Vanderbilt-Bestor encourages concerned citizens to get involved by registering for the walks at and by attending educational seminars and fundraising events. The latter includes a quarter auction, Quarter Frenzy for the Alzheimers Association,Ž on Nov. 8 at the 24TwentyOne Event Center. 2421 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the fun starts at 6:30. Paddles are $3 each or three for $7. You can win great items for just quarters,Ž Vanderbilt-Bestor promised.

By MARCIA HEROUX POUNDSSUN SENTINELTherapeuticsMD announced Monday that its single-pill hormone therapy for menopausal hot ”ashes has been approved for marketing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The new drug, which combines estradiol (estrogen) and progesterone in an oral softgel capsule, has been named Bijuva, and is expected to be available in the United States by April or May, the Boca Raton company said. For menopausal women, the approval means a new option for hormone therapy. Currently, women who want bio-identical hormone therapy „ molecularly identical to the hormones produced by a womans body „ have to take two pills. For the company, it means further entrance into a multibillion-dollar market of menopausal health care for women. Dr. James Liu, president of the North American Menopause Society and chairman of Obstetrics and Gynecology at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, said this is the “rst FDA approval of a combination hormone therapy evaluated in a large, well-controlled, randomized clinical trial that has demonstrated both safety and ef“cacy for the treatment of moderate to severe hot ”ashes due to menopause. The approval of Bijuva represents an important, novel and effective treatment option for women,Ž Liu said. The FDA approved Bijuvas higher dosage of 1 milligram of estradiol and 100 milligrams of progesterone. TherapeuticsMD had also proposed a capsule with a lower dose of estradiol. The FDA thought there was no reason for a lower dose,Ž the company said. In August, TherapeuticsMD began distributing Imvexxy, its new treatment for menopausal women who experience painful sex due to vaginal atrophy. Imvexxy was approved for marketing by the FDA in May.FDA approves pill for hot flashes in menopausal women adno=3621968-1 2007-2018


By CHRISTOPHER RUGABERAP ECONOMICS WRITERWASHINGTON „ U.S. businesses ramped up hiring in October, and wages rose by the largest year-over-year amount in nearly a decade, a combination that is pulling a rising share of Americans into the job market. In the final major economic report before Tuesdays congressional elections, the government said Friday that U.S. employers added a robust 250,000 jobs in October. The unemployment rate stayed at a five-decade low of 3.7 percent. Healthy economic growth is spurring employers to hire at a rapid pace that shows no sign of flagging even with the economy in its 10th year of expansion. With the supply of unemployed dwindling, companies appear to be finally putting up generous enough pay raises to attract and retain employees. Average hourly wages rose 3.1 percent in October from a year earlier, the fastest annual gain since 2009. Still, inflation has picked up a bit in the past year as well, eating away at some of those pay raises. And the increase in wages last month also partly reflected a one-time drop in pay a year ago because of Hurricane Harvey. Even so, Octobers increase suggests that after a decade of anemic growth, wage growth is picking up. At the same time, an influx of new job-seekers increased the proportion of Americans with jobs to its highest level since 2009. The economy has now added jobs for 97 straight months, a record. That steady hiring has helped reduce the unemployment rate for Latinos to 4.4 percent, a record low. Teenage unemployment dropped last month to 11.9 percent, the lowest since 1969. And the proportion of Americans without a high school degree who are working has reached the highest point on records dating from 1992. It doesnt get any better than this,Ž said Sun Wong Sohn, chief economist at SS Economics. Evidently, the word has spread that there are good jobs to be had at decent wages.Ž Cheyenne Mauzy of Springfield, Missouri, had held out for higher pay when she started job hunting in June. She felt she needed a high enough hourly wage to make up for the cost of child care for her three children. There was a minimum we had to make,Ž Mauzy, 28, said, referring to calculations she made with her husband. I had to bring home enough on top of child care. If I am just going to work to pay for our child care, I should be our child care.Ž In late August, she took a job at a hospital in Springfield that pays $11.22 an hour. Becky Frankiewicz, president of staffing firm ManpowerGroup North America, said companies are trying a variety of strategies to fill jobs. Many retailers are removing the label seasonalŽ from their job postings and looking for permanent workers instead. Others are dropping their requirements for a college degree. We absolutely see employers getting more and more creative about ways to get people in,Ž Frankiewicz said. By some measures, consumers are the most confident they have been in 18 years, and their spending is propelling brisk economic growth. The economic expansion is now the second-longest on record, and October marked the 97th straight month of hiring, a record streak. Strength in their customer demand has been a key factor leading companies to steadily add workers. Though economists have predicted that hiring will eventually slow as the pool of unemployed Americans dwindles, theres no sign of that happening yet.Wages surge as US adds a robust 250,000 jobs in OctoberUS employers added 250,000 jobs in October and lifted wages at fastest pace since 2009 AP PHOTOIn this Jan. 30, “le photo, Loredana Gonzalez, of Doral, Fla., “lls out a job application at a JobNewsUSA job fair in Miami Lak es, Florida, On Friday, Nov. 2, the U.S. government issues the October jobs report. adno=3627237-1 Mission Driven...

OF REALTORS By CHRISTOPHER RUGABERAP ECONOMICS WRITERWASHINGTON „ Against the backdrop of next weeks midterm elections, the U.S. job market is the healthiest its been in at least two decades. And with another strong hiring report expected Friday, some barometers of the job market suggest that it has room to strengthen further. Businesses, hungry for workers, are advertising a record number of openings. Companies in October added the most jobs in eight months, a private survey found. Pay has been picking up. In the past year or so, as unemployment has dwindled to a now-49-year low, economists had been predicting that hiring would slow as the pool of jobless workers shrank. Yet so far that hasnt happened. In fact, job growth has actually accelerated this year from 2017. And though some industries have complained of a lack of quali“ed applicants, other signs point to a pool of readily available workers, including the number of part-time workers who would prefer full-time jobs. It doesnt seem to me that were anywhere near the point where, oh my God, we cant “nd people,Ž said Joseph LaVorgna, chief economist for the Americas at Natixis, an asset management company. So far in 2018, employers have added a robust average of 208,000 jobs a month. Thats stronger than last years average of 182,000, though not quite at the sizzling pace of roughly 250,000 in 2015. Combined, all that hiring has been enough to cut the jobless rate to 3.7 percent, the lowest level since 1969. Economists have forecast that the October jobs report being released Friday „ the “nal snapshot of the labor market before Election Day „ will show that a solid 190,000 jobs were added and that unemployment was unchanged. Polls have suggested that while Americans generally approve of the economys performance, that sentiment hasnt necessarily broadened voter support for President Donald Trump or Republican congressional candidates. At some point, job growth will moderate and likely even reverse itself, particularly if the economy „ now in its 10th year of expansion, the second-longest such stretch on record „ tips into recession. LaVorgna thinks the cause will most likely be the Federal Reserves ongoing interest rate hikes, which could squelch growth by making borrowing increasingly expensive for businesses and households. Or the Trump administrations trade wars could weaken the economy enough to depress hiring. Contrary to the concerns of some analysts, LaVorgna doesnt envision an economy-wide shortage of available hires anytime soon. There is no evidence that the economy ever runs out of workers during an economic expansion,Ž he said. More employers are stepping up their pay increases in order to attract and retain workers. Retailers like Amazon, Walmart and Target have been steadily raising their entry-level wages, with Amazon paying $15 an hour starting on Thursday. A pickup in average pay suggests that companies have to work harder to “ll their open positions. Higher pay can also draw people who arent working and hadnt been seeking a job to begin looking. Americans who are neither working nor looking for work arent counted as unemployed. For some of them, the costs of child care and commuting to a job can outweigh the “nancial bene“t of a job. Yet as pay rises, that calculation can change in favor of seeking work. Salaries for private-sector workers rose 3.1 percent in the July-September quarter compared with a year ago, the government said Wednesday. That was the strongest increase in a decade. Still, by most measures, average wage increases remain below the levels they reached the last time unemployment was this low. That may indicate that employers arent quite panicking about “nding enough people to hire. Pay increases are grinding higher,Ž said Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics. But they arent exploding.Ž One reason may be there are some ways in which employers can “nd workers without offering larger raises. Research by economists at the job listing site Indeed has found that the proportion of Americans working part time who would prefer full-time jobs remains elevated. About 2.9 percent of all workers are in that category, compared with 2.6 percent before the recession and 2.2 percent in 2000, when the unemployment rate was nearly as low as it is now. Martha Gimbel, research director for Indeed, says that companies can offer more hours to their part-time workers without necessarily having to raise pay. Thats easier than having to dangle sizable raises to recruit workers from other companies. The number of part-time workers who would prefer more hours has been dropping „ a sign that companies are already taking that step. The proportion of Americans in their prime working years „ 25 through 54 „ who have jobs remains below its pre-recession level, though its risen since 2013. If more people in this group began looking for work, employers could keep hiring despite the low unemployment rate. Such a trend would help offset the steady retirement of the baby boom generation. In the meantime, some economists have forecast that strong hiring will continue to shrink the unemployment rate, potentially to levels not seen since the Korean War in the 1950s. Goldman Sachs forecasts that the jobless rate could decline to 3 percent by the end of 2020. Federal Reserve policymakers foresee a smaller drop by then to 3.5 percent.With employers eager to fill jobs, hiring could stay strongJOBS/PROPERTY TRANSFER

McIntyreTRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE (TNS)Q: Several months ago, the university where I work hired a new dean who has completely changed my job. During my 20 years as the former deans assistant, I performed a wide variety of duties which I liked and handled well. But after Dr. JordanŽ came, my more interesting responsibilities were given to other people, leaving me with boring clerical tasks. Because I want to do more than schedule meetings and make travel arrangements, I am now applying for positions in other departments. However, I feel quite resentful about being pushed out of a job which I enjoyed for many years. I am tempted to share my feelings with Dr. Jordan, but I dont know if that would be a good idea. A: Turnover at the top almost inevitably results in operational change. For longserving employees, these alterations in policies, procedures and positions can feel like a minor earthquake, so your reaction is certainly understandable. The present and previous deans clearly have widely differing views about the role of an assistant. Watching your job description shrink must have been sad and frustrating, so seeking a more rewarding position is a wise move. For your own bene“t, however, you should still maintain a pleasant and positive demeanor with your current boss. If those other departments ask Dr. Jordan for a reference, a negative review could kill your transfer prospects. Although resentment is a natural and expected response in this situation, you must make a concerted effort to get those feelings under control. Resentment is one of the most destructive emotions at work, because the recipient will eventually sense the hostility and react accordingly, sending the relationship into a downward spiral. So while venting those angry feelings might feel good at “rst, doing so could easily jeopardize future goals. After the arrival of new management, employees can choose to be contentious or collaborative. Ill let you guess which group has better career prospects. Q: A new supervisor who reports to me seems to spend a lot of time listening to his teams personal problems. I believe he is just trying to show compassion and concern, but he needs to learn that managers should not try to act like counselors with their employees. How can I help him recognize appropriate boundaries without being too critical? A: Any strength carried too far can become a weakness. When talking with your overly empathic supervisor, explain that while you encourage friendly staff relationships, personal counseling can easily become problematic. For example: One of your strengths as a supervisor is that you really care about your employees. However, you need to be sure that you dont get too involved in their private lives. Lately, you and your staff seem to be spending a lot of work time disc ussing personal issues, so I need for you to limit these conversations in the future.Ž Suggest some speci“c strategies for politely and appropriately ending such discussions, and then schedule a follow-up meeting to review progress. If you continue to provide feedback and coaching, he should soon begin to “gure out where that boundary lies.Your Office Coach: New boss, fewer duties Need a Friend? Look in the Classifieds

Tallahassee police say 40-yearold Scott Paul Beierle shot six people and pistol-whipped another after walking into the yoga studio that sits on the second ”oor of the small shopping plaza. Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo said some in the studio showed courage and tried to stop him. Witnesses at the shopping center described how people who had been in the studio, including one who was bleeding, ran away, seeking shelter in nearby bars and restaurants as shots rang out. Police responded within a few minutes, but by then Beirele had fatally shot himself, leaving police to search for a motive and a community to wonder what prompted the violence near the citys fashionable midtown neighborhoods. Its a place that brings my joy and peace, and I think its ruined,Ž said Katie Bohnett, an instructor at the yoga studio who skipped her normal Friday practice to meet a friend for dinner. This monster ruined it.Ž Police said Beierle acted alone but they were still looking into what prompted the shooting. He had been in the military and was a graduate of nearby Florida State University, but was living in Deltona, a town in central Florida east of Orlando. Authorities in that county were Man posed as customer, killed 2 women in Tallahassee yoga studio AP PHOTOPolice investigators work the scene of a shooting, Friday, in Tallahassee, Fla. A shooter killed two people at a yoga studio in Floridas capital before killing himself Friday, ocials said. By TERRY SPENCERASSOCIATED PRESSWEST PALM BEACH, Fla. „ While Florida Republicans waited for President Donald Trump in one corner of the state Saturday, Margaritaville king Jimmy Buffett took musical shots at him and Gov. Rick Scott in another as the states tight Senate and gubernatorial races reached the “nal weekend of campaigning. Performing at a West Palm Beach campaign rally for U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, who is being challenged by Scott, and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who is running for governor, Buffett urged more than 1,000 people to vote Democratic by tweaking the lyrics of two of his most popular songs. First, to take a dig at Trump, he changed the wording of Come MondayŽ to Come Tuesday, things will change. Come Tuesday, were making a change. Its been two insane years and its time to really switch gears...Ž The performance was 3 miles from Trumps Mar-aLago resort and frequent winter hangout.

And to the mounting alarm of others on all parts of the spectrum, they want to bypass the usual process. Theyre pushing for an unprecedented Constitutional convention of the states. While opponents are afraid of what such a convention would do, supporters say it is the only way to deal with the federal governments overreach and ineptitude. They literally see this as the survival of the nation,Ž said Karla Jones, director of the federalism task force at the conservative American Legislative Exchange Council, which represents state lawmakers and offers guidance and model legislation for states to call a convention under the Constitutions Article V. Among the most frequently cited changes being sought: amendments enforcing a balanced federal budget, establishing term limits for members of Congress, and repealing the 17th Amendment, which put the power of electing the Senate in the hands of the public instead of state legislatures. For the past 229 years, constitutional amendments have originated in Congress, where they need the support of two-thirds of both houses, and then the approval of at least three-quarters of the states. But under a never-used second prong of Article V, amendments can originate in the states. Two-thirds of states „ currently, 34 „ must call for a convention at which three-fourths of states approve of a change. The particulars of such a convention, though, are not laid out. Do the states have to call for a convention on the same topic? Must they pass resolutions with similar or identical wording? The U.S. Supreme Court may have to decide whether the threshold of states has been reached and, ultimately, the parameters of a convention and the rules delegates would be governed by. A bill introduced in the U.S. House last year would direct the National Archives to compile all applications for an Article V convention. Some believe enough states have already passed Article V resolutions, pointing to votes over the years across the country on a variety of potential amendment topics. Others contend the highest possible current count of states is 28 „ the number of states with existing resolutions on the most common convention topic, a balanced budget amendment. Others point to lower total counts based on states that have passed near-identical resolutions. Regardless, proponents of a convention believe they have momentum on their side more than any other time in American history. That second clause of Article V was speci“cally intended for a time like this, when the federal Could states move and amend US Constitution?Forget midterms, some conservatives eye a bigger unprecedented political contest through Article V NATIONAL ARCHIVES VIA APThis photo made available by the U.S. National Archives shows a portion of the United States Constitution with the title of Art icle V.

But whether that fund can cover the whole recovery cost isnt yet known. None of that has been thought about yet,Ž Jeff Rogers, spokesman for Gulf Power, said of the total cost to restore electricity. Weve been focused only on restoration ... but over the next couple of weeks well get more information.Ž Rogers said the company has a disaster fund set up with the state to pay for situations like the hurricane, which knocked out power in the county three weeks ago. Money for the fund comes from portions of customers electricity bills, Rogers said. If there isnt enough in the fund, we may go to the state to ask for more,Ž Rogers said. Rogers said power companies across the country have similar disaster funds that pay for visiting repair crews and equipment. Its always the host company that pays for it,Ž Rogers said of disaster recovery. Like when we travel, the host company picks up the tab.Ž Robert Barnes, a Panama City native who now lives in Vernon, said he saw people on the social media site Facebook complaining about Gulf Power but praising visiting crews. Thinking that Gulf Power was being unfairly criticized, Barnes asked The News Herald through its Bay Asked, We Answered series: Who pays for all of the out-ofstate power company crews, equipment and supplies?Ž I wanted to get some factual information out there about what theyve done,Ž Barnes said about Gulf Power. Theyve done a hell of a job getting things back up and running.Ž Rogers said that to date, power was restored to almost everyone in the county who can receive electricity. Still, theres an estimated 15,000 customers whose homes and buildings are too damaged to accept power, he said. Theres destroyed equipment, its all over ... mostly in the hardest hit areas,Ž Rogers said. But, weve got people getting repairs every day.Ž Rogers noted that with the major restoration complete, most of the visiting linemen had left the county. More than 7,000 people from power companies across the country were in the county at the peak of the repair effort. Weve probably got about 1,500 now,Ž Rogers said. Now were in the cleanup phase, making sure repairs were done correctly and checking for possible weak points.ŽWho pays for out-of-state power crews, equipment, supplies?

Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood told news outlets the teenager was arrested early Saturday after the body of 46-year-old Gail Cleavenger was found under a church “re pit. Investigators say the boy killed her after they argued about his school grades. Chitwood says he faces murder charges. It was unclear Saturday if he has a lawyer to represent him.

The Department of Children and Families turned the boy over to the care of a neighbor at the request of Kings family. HEADLINES AROUND THE STATE By MAGGIE MICHAELASSOCIATED PRESSCAIRO „ The regional chief of the U.N. childrens agency said Saturday that Yemeni authorities are making it dif“cult to deliver much-needed humanitarian aid and warned that impeding relief efforts could plunge the country into famine. Geert Cappelaere told The Associated Press in an interview from Yemen that recent U.S. calls for a cease-“re are imperative to ending the nearly four-year war, which pits a Saudi-led coalition against Iran-aligned rebels known as Houthis. He visited the Red Sea port city of Hodeida and the rebel-held capital, Sanaa, over the past two days as clashes and airstrikes intensi“ed. He said both the internationally-recognized Yemeni government and Houthi rebels are not enabling us to do our work as fast as we should.Ž Cappelaere said he cant bring the best nutrition experts to the country because of delays in granting visas and that aid agencies face bureaucratic impediments the delay the import of supplies. He criticized authorities with other interestsŽ for creating delays in the arrival and distribution of supplies, without elaborating. Most aid agencies operate in Houthi-held areas where they face movement restrictions. The rebels manipulate aid distribution by providing lists of bene“ciaries and sometimes divert aid to their supporters. Cappelaeres visit came shortly after the United States called for the cease-“re within 30 days. He said the situation is deteriorating, with millions unable to meet their basic needs. Yemen has been at war since March 2015, when Houthis occupied northern Yemen, forcing the government into exile. Since then, a Saudi-led coalition supporting the government has blockaded the rebel-held north and waged a devastating air campaign. The U.S. has sold billions of dollars worth of arms to Saudi Arabia and provides logistical and other support to the coalition. An end to the con”ict is ... a much-needed step but it needs to be complemented with investment and governance of this country that puts the interest of the people at the center and the interest of the children at the core of politics,Ž Cappelaere said. Three-quarters of Yemens 29 million people are food insecure, 1.8 million children suffer from malnutrition and 400,000 children under age 5 are at risk of death from starvation. Every 10 minutes a child dies of preventable diseases, according to UNICEF. Around 40 percent of the 400,000 are located in and around Hodeida, which has been the target of a stalled coalition offensive in recent months. The port is a key entry point for food and humanitarian aid, but the coalition says the Houthis also use it to import weapons. During a visit to Hodeidas main hospital, Cappelaere said he saw children suffering from severe malnutrition and others paralyzed by complications from diphtheria, an epidemic fueled by the breakdown of health services. He says many families in Hodeida cannot make it to hospitals because of airstrikes and shelling, or because they cannot afford transportation. Its high time for authorities from both sides to take responsibility and enable that assistance without any conditions, without any hurdles,Ž he said.UN agency urges open access for aid to Yemen AP PHOTOIn this Oct. 1, photo, children sit in front of moldy bread in their shelter, in Aslam, Hajjah, Yemen.

By SAMY MAGDY and HAMZA HENDAWIASSOCIATED PRESSMINYA, Egypt „ Hundreds of Egyptian Christians attended a funeral service Saturday after seven people were killed in an ambush by Islamic State militants of buses carrying pilgrims to a remote desert monastery. The service at Prince Tadros church in the central city of Minya was held amid tight security. Minyas top cleric, Anba Makarios, led prayers over a row of six white cof“ns, all victims from the same family. A separate funeral was held for the seventh victim, a bus driver. Relatives of the victims cried and held each other for support. Some rested their heads on the cof“ns and wept. A list of the victims names released by the church said a 15-yearold boy and a 12-year-old girl were among the dead. Nineteen were wounded in the attack, according to the church. Aida Shehata, who was shot in her legs, said masked men opened “re on three buses from different directions. Two of the buses were able to speed away and reach the monastery, but the militants stopped the third one and killed the driver and six of the passengers, including her husband and his brother. The driver tried to go to the monastery but they (the militants) were faster,Ž Shehata told a Coptic TV network. An Islamic State af“liate based in the restive northern Sinai Peninsula claimed the attack, calling it revenge for the imprisonment of our chaste sisters,Ž without elaborating. The attack cast a shadow on one of President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissis showpieces „ the World Youth Forum „ which opens Saturday in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh. The forum is drawing thousands of local and foreign youth to discuss a wide range of topics, with Egypts 63-year-old leader taking center stage. In an apparent effort to keep the attack from overshadowing the start of the three-day conference, two state-owned newspapers ran front-page banner headlines about the forum. Akhbar al-Youm ran a large photo of el-Sissi cycling in Sharm el-Sheikh. Its reference to the attack lower down in the page made no mention of casualties. IS has repeatedly targeted Egypts Christians as punishment for their support of el-Sissi, who led the militarys 2013 ouster of an elected but divisive Islamist president. El-Sissi, who has made security among his top priorities since taking of“ce in 2014, wrote on his Twitter account that Fridays attack was designed to harm the nations solid fabricŽ and pledged to continue “ghting terrorism. Fridays attack was the second to target pilgrims heading to the St. Samuel the Confessor monastery in as many years, indicating that security measures put in place since then are inadequate.

The statement said the attacker was a member of the Afghan security forces and initial reports indicate the assailant was immediately killed by other Afghan forces. The two U.S. service members were medically evacuated to Bagram Air“eld, where the wounded service member is undergoing medical treatment and is in stable condition, it said.

The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018 E/N/C Page 3By DUNE LAWRENCEBLOOMBERG NEWS (TNS)NEW YORK …… Researchers have identi“ed what they called a coordinated network of Twitter accounts thats pushing false and misleading stories about election integrity with hashtags like #VoterFraud. They found a core of 200 accounts that posted on Twitter or were mentioned in posts more than 140 million times in the past year, according to a research report published Saturday. The “ndings dont necessarily re”ect a reprise of the Russian in”uence efforts in the 2016 election, nor are the posts clearly driven by automated bots, researchers say. But the network of accounts, which sounds off at relatively regular intervals …… even at times when theres nothing about the topic in the news …… has helped create an echo chamber to justify state-level ballot restrictions despite little evidence of voter fraud. There is a tragically ironic relationship between the perception that large groups of people are voting illegally,Ž while a small group of Twitter accounts is wielding massive in”uence to spread disinformation, affecting the publics understanding of voter fraud,Ž the report says. It was prepared by a volunteer group of researchers and technologists led by, a New York startup focused on protecting pro-democracy organizations from information warfare and cyberattack. Researchers couldnt identify who was behind the coordination and said the patterns they found suggest that online in”uence operations have changed in subtle ways that avoid detection. We set out to provide a new way for the public to understand how in”uence works,Ž the report says. Today a small group of people can wield increasingly more powerful AI, big data, and psychological targeting to in”uence society, and we feel that its a fundamental right to know whos in”uencing you, how its happening and why.Ž A spokesman for Twitter couldnt be reached for comment Saturday. In mid-September, researchers at Guardians. ai began digging into the hashtag #VoterFraud. Brett Horvath, one of the companys three founders, got into online organizing more than decade ago, helping launch an app that allowed people in Washington state and Arizona to register to vote from their Facebook pro“les. His co-founders, Zachary Verdin and Alicia Serrani, worked together at New Hive, a multimedia publishing platform for artists. Partners at San Diego Supercomputer Centers Data Science Hub (part of the University of California at San Diego) and Zignal Labs in San Francisco also contributed to the report. Horvath and Serrani found spikes in the hashtag on two days in August, when mentions jumped from hundreds a day to more than 6,500. They looked back 12 months, and then three years, and found the pattern of increases repeating so regularly that the graph looked like a heartbeat. They didnt “nd much news to explain the spikes, but looking at the accounts using the hashtag, they noticed the same handles again and again. They also found similar spikes …… and a core of the same accounts …… mentioning related hashtags like #VoterID and #ElectionFraud. Its not just like, oh theres these kind of suspicious accounts that tweet about normal stuff, and just happen to all tweet about voter fraud on the exact same day,Ž Horvath said. Theyre accounts that operate at the same time, in the same ways, and are also involved in in”uencing other divisive narratives.Ž Accounts in the network have promoted the idea that billionaire George Soros is funding the migrant caravan invasionŽ; issued warnings about buses of undocumented immigrants being paid to vote; and fueled false ”agŽ theories that Democrats orchestrated last months rash of package bombs to make President Donald Trump look bad. In 2016, voter fraud became one of the newly elected Trumps “rst obsessions, when he claimed without evidence that millions of illegal votes gave Democrat Hillary Clinton the edge in the popular-vote count. The liberal-leaning Brennan Center for Justice in New York calls voter fraud extraordinarily rare. The conservative Heritage Foundation, which maintains a database of election-fraud cases meant to demonstrate the dangers, lists 1,165 instances and 1,011 criminal convictions over about 40 years. (Heritage points out that those cases involve far more than 1,165 ballots, and says its list is not meant to be comprehensive.) The specter of undocumented immigrants and phantom dead people casting ballots has driven legislation to tighten voting requirements in many states. Over the past two years, Arkansas and North Dakota passed voter ID bills while Georgia, Iowa, Indiana, New Hampshire and North Carolina enacted new restrictions, according to the Brennan Center. Once the researchers noticed the heartbeat pattern and identi“ed the accounts that pushed the spikes, they had questions. The accounts dont look like fakes and many included photos of real people in their bio sections. Some have been around for many years, posting without much attention or many followers, though not necessarily always about politics.

Rabbi Chuck Diamond led a service of prayers, songs and poetry and reminisced about some of the worshippers killed, as Show Up For Shabbat services honoring the 11 dead and six wounded were held at synagogues across the United States. I almost expected Cecil to greet me this morning,Ž Diamond said of Cecil Rosenthal, 59, killed along with his brother, David, 54, in the Oct. 27 shooting at Tree of Life synagogue in the citys Squirrel Hill neighborhood. Diamond called the victims angels given to us, full of love and life.Ž In the past week, people told him of weddings, bar mitzvahs and other ceremonies theyve held at the synagogue. This is a place, a building that has stood for joy, but now it is forever stained,Ž Diamond said. But the shooting cannot overshadow (that) this building is and will be into the future a place of joy.Ž He said he took great comfort in seeing people of all faiths come together since the shooting and for his prayer vigil on Saturday. Its important to come and take care of your community when something like this happens. I want to be in solidarity,Ž said Andrew Allison, who attended Saturdays service. Before coming to the outdoor service, Steve Irwin, 59, and a friend stopped by a Squirrel Hill coffee shop. When we went to pay, we were told all the coffee was paid for by the Sandy Hook community,Ž referring to Newtown, Conn., where a gunman killed 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012. It brought tears to my eyes,Ž Irwin said, standing outside Tree of Life on Saturday with his dog. It shows how incumbent it is upon us to pay it forward to the next community this happens, which we hope never happens, but we know it will happen.Ž The outdoor service gives you a sense of normalcy, which is impossible to “nd right now,Ž he said. Meanwhile, the pews were packed at Central Synagogue in New York City, where Jews and non-Jews alike gathered for a special Show Up for Shabbat service. Its such a tragedy that happened in Pittsburgh, and I was touched by the calling of the Jewish community to welcome nonJews into their synagogues today, so I couldnt resist and I came,Ž said Steven Kent, an Episcopalian. It was a wonderful feeling.Ž The suspect, Robert Bowers, 46, pleaded not guilty Thursday to federal charges that could result in a death sentence. He was arraigned on a 44-count indictment charging him with murder, hate crimes, obstructing the practice of religion and other crimes. This is not a Jewish problem, although Jews were targeted. This is a human problem,Ž said Rev. Lee Clark, a retired Presbyterian pastor who took part in Saturdays service outside the Tree of Life synagogue. The only way to confront hate is to face it with love.Ž About a half-mile away at Congregation Beth Shalom, worshippers, including several members of Tree of Life, gathered for Shabbat services. They honored Augie Siriano, 59, the 25-year Tree of Life custodian, who witnessed the shooting. I had tea with Cecil (Rosenthal) 10 minutes before I found him,Ž Siriano said later, wiping away tears. Augie just loved them,Ž said Sirianos girlfriend, Rose Battista.

Police have not yet said what kind of gun he used. Bohnett said that those at the studio Friday were yoga devotees. She said she did not recognize Beierle. The two slain Friday were a student and faculty member at Florida State University, according to university of“cials. The department identi“ed them as Dr. Nancy Van Vessem, 61, and Maura Binkley, 21. Online records show Binkley was from Atlanta. Police said two other victims were in stable condition, and three had been released from the hospital. Van Vessem was an internist who also served as chief medical director for Capital Health Plan, the areas leading health maintenance organization. To lose one of our students and one of our faculty members in this tragic and violent way is just devastating to the Florida State University family. We feel this loss profoundly and we send our deepest sympathies to Mauras and Nancys loved ones while we pray for the recovery of those who were injured,Ž FSU President John Thrasher said in a statement. Court and FSU records show that Beierle had been previously arrested for grabbing women „ and had once been banned from FSUs campus. Beierle was charged by police with battery in 2016 after he slapped and grabbed a womans buttocks at an apartment complex pool. Records show that the charges were eventually dismissed after Beierle followed the conditions of a deferred prosecution agreement. Beierle was also charged with battery in 2012 for grabbing womens buttocks in a university campus dining hall. A FSU police report shows that Beierle told police he may have accidentally bumped into someone, but denied grabbing anyone. In 2014, Beierle was charged with trespassing at FSU. He had been seen following an FSU volleyball coach near the campus gym and was told that he was banned from campus. A month later police found him at a campus restaurant. The plaza where the shooting took place is home to popular restaurants, a jewelry store, a framing shop, a hair salon and other businesses. The restaurants owner came by a short time later, asking if anyone was a doctor, Wesson said. His step-daughter is an emergency room nurse and helped paramedics for about an hour, he said. Melissa Hutchinson said she helped treat a profuselyŽ bleeding man who rushed into a bar after the incident. She said three people from the studio ran in, and they were told there was an active shooter. The people who came in were injured, including the bleeding man who was pistol-whipped while trying to stop the shooter. They told her the shooter kept coming in and out of the studio. When he loaded his gun, people started pounding the studios windows to warn people.STUDIOFROM PAGE 1voters need to send an unapologetic message to the NRA that their time is up in FloridaŽ and called for tighter gun laws, including tougher background checks and a ban on convicted domestic abusers owning guns. We can celebrate what it means to have the Second Amendment and celebrate safety and security in our homes, in our neighborhoods, in our schools, in our houses of worship at the same time,Ž Gillum said. Trump takes frequent digs at Gillum and accuses him of running a violent city as he campaigns for DeSantis and Scott. DeSantis won the Republican nomination after receiving Trumps endorsement, in large part for his appearances on Fox News praising the presidents policies and denouncing the probe led by Robert Mueller into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election. Scott is a longtime friend of the president, entering politics in 2010 as a tea party opponent of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Rick Scott always delivers for the people of Florida,Ž Trump told Wednesdays crowd. Polls show both races to be close and the campaigns targeted their bases with their major events Saturday, holding them in party strongholds. Palm Beach County is heavily Democratic, a legacy of its history attracting retirees from New York and elsewhere in the Northeast. The party has a 3-to-2 margin over Republicans and Hillary Clinton beat Trump 56 to 41 percent there in 2016. Pensacolas Escambia County, near the Alabama border, has a large population of active and retired military members and is heavily Republican. The party holds a 4-to-3 margin over Democrats, and Trump beat Clinton 57 to 37 percent there in 2016.CAMPAIGNFROM PAGE 1government gets out of control and when the Congress wont deliver to the people what they want,Ž said Mark Meckler, a tea party leader who now heads Citizens for Self-Governance, which runs the Convention of States Project calling for an Article V convention. Legislation promoted by the group calls for a convention focused on the federal governments budget and power, and term limits for of“ce holders. It has passed 12 states and one legislative chamber in another 10. The Convention of States Project says 18 other states are considering the measure. Meckler, like other backers of a convention, believes theres no reason why it cant be limited in scope. Others arent so sure. Four states that previously had passed resolutions calling for a convention have rescinded them in recent years, often citing wariness over a runawayŽ convention. Karen Hoberty Flynn, president of Common Cause, has sounded alarms on a possible convention and portrays the coast-to-coast emergence of resolutions on the issue a game of Whack-a-Mole.Ž This is the most dangerous idea in American politics that most people know nothing about,Ž she said. Nancy MacLean, a Duke University historian and author of Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Rights Stealth Plan for America,Ž views the prospect of an Article V convention with fear „ the next chapter of decades of work on the far right transforming the federal judiciary and supporting cases that go on to make broad constitutional points, all while suppressing votes and gerrymandering districts. The ultimate project,Ž MacLean said of conservatives, is to transform our primary rules book, which is the Constitution.Ž There are proponents of an Article V convention on the left who see it as a possible way to overturn the Citizens United campaign “nance decision, pass the Equal Rights Amendment and otherwise address what they see as a stacked deck that has helped the GOP get an unfair advantage. But with more red states than blue ones, it seems an unlikely path to abolishing the Electoral College, reengineering apportionment of the Senate or otherwise devising a democracy they believe is more re”ective of the American publics views. In that view, its baf”ing to some observers that conservatives are the ones pushing a convention. I dont know what exactly theyre unhappy with. When I look at the current politics, it seems to me things for them are going really well,Ž said constitutional law professor Michael Klarman of Harvard University. Theyre already getting what they want from the Supreme Court. Gerrymandering is “ne. Unlimited money in politics is “ne. The Electoral College is OK. Voter purges, photo ID laws are OK. So I dont know exactly what theyre looking for.Ž Meckler acknowledges the loudest voices calling for a convention are conservative. (You look at our website, its all right-wingers,Ž he says.) But he sees that as a re”ection of a conservative culture in which the Constitution is more frequently discussed, not a re”ection of the politics of it. Its not the “rst time a convention has been proposed. In the 1890s, when the Senate refused to take up the issue of direct election of senators, states pursued a convention, falling just short. Eventually, the 17th Amendment passed in the usual way, ful“lling that aim. In the 1960s, states sought a convention over a Supreme Court decision dictating how legislative districts were apportioned. But convention opponents have always feared that once one has been launched, it could tear up the Constitutions in all sorts of ways. Whats to stop a convention from passing an abhorrent affront to the Founders, like an outright ban on Muslims, Klarman asks. He points to a 2009 Swiss referendum that resulted in outlawing the construction of minarets, the towers found beside mosques. Its a dangerous route and an unpredictable one,Ž said Laurence Tribe, another Harvard University constitutional law expert. Jones said such fears are misguidedŽ and that so many stopgapsŽ would prevent a runawayŽ convention. That suggests a failure of institutions that is so massive that the last thing we need to worry about is a constitutional amendment,Ž she said. That would suggest that Congress failed in its duty to say, Look, you dealt with an issue that is not contained in the resolution. That would require the judiciary to also not step in. It would require a failure of all of our democratic institutions and it would require a failure of the American people not to rise up.Ž Still, several states have rescinded previous calls for a convention as lawmakers grew fearful of what it could bring. Over the years, Nevada lawmakers have made various calls for a convention to consider a ban on abortion, to prohibit racial integration of schools and to abolish the 17th Amendment. But when Democratic state Sen. Tick Segerblom saw how close advocates were to hitting the 34-state mark, he realized the idea was no longer far-fetched and that it would be safer to back off its Article V votes rather than take the chance of a runaway convention. So last year, he sponsored a resolution to do just that. The goals of convention backers are not the Democratic Partys goals or even the Republican Partys goals,Ž he said. Its some fringe groups.Ž In fact, while some conservatives have voiced the greatest support for a convention, others strongly oppose it. At an October hearing in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Kim Stolfer of the gun rights group Firearms Owners Against Crime told lawmakers that the push for a convention scares the dickens out of me.Ž Andy Scha”y of the conservative Pennsylvania Eagle Forum called a convention a Pandoras box.Ž A Republican who sponsored an Article V resolution and supports it so passionately that she calls it my baby,Ž Arizona state Rep. Kelly Townsend once shared those misgivings. Now, though, she believes it could both put the country on the right path and unite the parties. She thinks an amendment on term limits could bring Democrats and Republicans together. That, in turn, could lead to another amendment that merges issues of opposing sides „ perhaps, say, overturning of Citizens United to appeal to liberals while mandating a balanced budget to bring in conservatives. This isnt red vs. blue,Ž she said, this is about states rights and an overspending, overbearing federal government that is out of control.Ž Harvards Tribe rejects that as naive. The idea that we could have a kumbaya moment in which a convention would produce a stable republic with some respect for the rule of law,Ž he said, seems like a fantasy.ŽCONSTITUTIONFROM PAGE 1 By JUSTIN FENTON and JESSICA ANDERSONTHE BALTIMORE SUN (TNS)BALTIMORE „ Fire“ghters recovered the body of a second man Saturday from an distribution warehouse, which partially collapsed the night before. Chief Roman Clark said a 50-foot wall collapsed at the Amazon Ful“llment Center in Southeast Baltimore as a storm swept through the area. He said one man was found under debris Friday night and taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Clark said a second man who was unaccounted for Friday night was found around 7:30 a.m. Saturday. Clark said “re“ghters used heavy equipment to remove debris to “nd the second man. An Amazon of“cial said the two people killed werent employees of the online retail giant, but worked for an outside company. The victims names were withheld pending noti“cation of family. No other injuries were reported. Images taken from outside the facility showed a badly damaged truck and a knocked over light pole, among other damage. Roads around the facility were “lled with debris. On nearby Interstate 95, on the north side of the Fort McHenry tunnel, a tractor trailer also overturned. Two survey teams are expected to evaluate the area near the Amazon center, as well as Mount Airy, which also experienced severe storm damage, to determine whether a tornado touched down, said Cody Ledbetter, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service of“ce in Sterling, Va.

Well announce it in next weeks edition. investors fall short of even the subpar returns their funds produce. Thats because fund investors often jump in after a fund has generated strong performance, and then get out at the worst possible time „ during or after a market downturn or a rough period for the fund. Many investors do the same with the individual stocks they invest in, as well. If you dont have the discipline to stay the course during bad times and hang on to investments you bought after your research suggested they had strong long-term potential, just stick with one or more index funds. Stay calm as they rise and fall in concert with the overall market, and know that over long periods, the stock market has always gained ground. With actively managed funds charging much more in fees than many index funds charge, its not surprising that most of them fail to match the returns of their index counterparts. Index investing may not seem exciting, but its one of the best ways around to build long-term wealth. Consider a lowfee S&P 500 index fund or a total world stock index fund to start.The Motley Fool TakeGamble on ProcterJudging by the stocks performance over the last five years (as of recently, a paltry 8 percent cumulative gain), investors are in a sour mood about Procter & Gambles (NYSE: PG) business. Some of that pessimism is justified, given that P&G has shed market share in a few key product categories, such as shaving care, during that time. The broader consumer products industry is facing wider challenges, too, including rising costs of raw materials. Yet P&G is faring better than its peers in some respects. Its industryleading profitability relies on an impressive selling infrastructure thats become even more efficient through an aggressive cost-cutting program. It draws strength from its scale and solid retailer relationships. Consider that even if it downsized to 65 brands, more than a dozen of those generate more than $1 billion in annual sales. As many of P&Gs brands are consumer staples, much of its business has proven to be more resilient during economic downturns. P&G is aiming for faster sales growth this year and is rolling out significant price increases that could boost earnings. Investors are right to be cautious about that bright outlook, but the stock doesnt need head-turning revenue figures to outperform rivals from this low point. The stock is well worth considering for its stability and solid dividend „ which recently yielded 3.2 percent and which has been increased for 62 consecutive years. Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentGreat Stock, Bad MovesMy dumbest mistake was buying shares of Netflix at $17 apiece, hanging on until they hit $19 (thinking that I was the smartest investor since Warren Buffett), only to panic and sell them all at a loss when they dropped to $15. The shares, having split 7-for-1 in 2015, were recently trading for around $350 apiece. Lesson learned? Have patience, and believe in the business. „ P.P., Milwaukee The Fool Responds: You made a classic beginning-investor mistake: not understanding that individual stocks, like the stock market as a whole, dont rise in value in a straight line. Long-term believers in Netflix (a stock recommended and owned by The Motley Fool) recently had their faith reinforced when the company reported its third-quarter earnings, exceeding expectations with 34 percent revenue growth, 12 percent operating profit margin, 207 percent earnings-per-share growth and 7 million new members, bringing total membership to 137 million. Doubters, though, worry that the stock is overvalued, and that in the face of growing competition, the company will have to keep spending so much on original content that profitability will be elusive. Opinions differ and the future is unknown, but those who think that the company will be far larger years from now are hanging on, through pops and drops. Penny Stocks and ArbitrageQWhy wouldnt penny stocks make me rich quickly, when I can buy thousands of them for a few hundred dollars? „ B.Y., Hickory, North CarolinaAPenny stocks are not just stocks with extra-low prices. Trading for $5 or less per share, they can be more likely to plummet than skyrocket. Theyre risky, and often hyped and manipulated. While penny stocks may seem like bargains, they wont necessarily grow faster than other stocks. A $1 stock and a $40 one can both go up (or down!) by the same percentage in one day. With a 5-percent increase, the $1 stock will rise in value by 5 cents, to $1.05. For the $40 stock, its a $2 jump, to $42. The $40 stock is likely tied to a healthier company, perhaps with competitive advantages, actual revenue and profits, and a more attractive valuation. If so, its a far better bargain than the $1 stock. Penny-stock investors are often naive beginners looking to get rich quick, but thats not how reliable wealth-building works. Focus on the long run: Plenty of big, successful blue-chip companies have rewarded shareholders handsomely over many years, while penny stocks have wiped out many investors. ***QWhats arbitrage? „ R.W., onlineAIts when you profit from temporary price differences. For example, perhaps MacDonald Farms Inc. (ticker: EIEIO) is trading at $55 per share on a U.S. stock market and at $55.10 per share on a foreign market. If you simultaneously buy some of the lower-priced shares and sell the same number of higher-priced shares, youll reap a profit of 10 cents per share (not counting commission costs). This may seem negligible, but arbitrageurs often invest very large sums.Want more information about stocks?

I received lots of congratulations in person and by phone, text and social media. One of them came from a woman my age named Bree.Ž When I responded, I didnt recall ever having friended her but learned shes a cousin who lives back east. Apparently, her mother and my father are siblings. When I asked my father about it, he got very defensive and told me whoever it was I spoke to is a complete and total liar. Ordinarily, I might have agreed, but his reaction tells me theres a lot more to this. I want to nd out more. Neither of my parents will say a word about it, and I dont know why. When I told them I plan to travel to the East Coast and meet Bree, I was told I may not be welcomed back if I do! This makes me wonder what horrible thing could have happened that would make a father consider disowning his son. Because my father wont share the truth with me, I am left with only this option. Pursue this, nd part of my family I never knew existed and learn something, but lose the family I have and regret it forever. Any insight? „ LOST COUSIN IN CALIFORNIA DEAR COUSIN: I can oer insight, but not a roadmap for how to proceed. Family secrets can be devastating. That your father reacted so strongly shows how threatened he is that you might uncover something he isnt proud of. As a college graduate, I am sure you are familiar with the myth about Pandoras box. While you may not lose your father if you delve into this, you may nd that when you do, your image of him may be shattered. If you really feel you will regret it foreverŽ if you do, then make sure you are prepared for the possible penalty. DEAR ABBY: My only son and his wife had their rst baby recently. My daughterin-law treats me terribly. Shes hypercritical of what I do or say. I am usually so blindsided I dont have much of a reply. When I attempted to help out with the laundry, cleaning, etc., I was met with more criticism and advice on how to perform those tasks. She also says I dont know how to properly hold an infant. Abby, I have raised ve grown children! How can I change this situation? „ PUNISHED FOR WANTING TO HELP DEAR PUNISHED: Remind your daughter-in-law that youre just trying to help her. She may not have been critical of your eorts as much as trying to convey how she would like those tasks done. However, if you cant please her, take the hint and stop oering. She may be a nervous new mother, but she appears to have gone overboard to the point of being tactless. The next time she tells you you dont know how to hold a baby, point out that you managed to raise ve of them safely to adulthood.

Page 8 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018NATION NEWSDear Mr. Berko: My stockbroker insists that Uber, which is valued at $120 billion, will come public in the second quarter of 2019. He doesnt have a price yet but promises he could get at least 100 shares at the initial public offering price. He says the stock could double on the “rst day and thinks I should buy more shares as the price runs up. Hes extremely bullish. What do you think? Also, my sister, three of our cousins and I each inherited 227 shares of Zoetis. My broker wants me to sell all of mine. My sisters broker told her to round out her shares to 300. Whats your opinion, please? „ KC, Oklahoma City Dear KC: Regarding your “rst question, he may be right, but I think hes wrong. Ubers ride-hailing service launched in San Francisco in 2011. During the past seven years, Uber, whose 600,000 drivers have given rides to over 70 million passengers, has managed to lose money year after year after year. Frankly, Uber may be unable to make money. Uber wont publish “nancial results, but some Uber-watchers say the company lost nearly $5 billion in 2017, up from a $2.7 billion loss in 2016. Few companies have grown as quickly and lost so much money ($11 billion since 2011) in such a short time frame. Could Uber have developed Peter Pan syndrome „ reaching a stage of maturity most companies never achieve and becoming deeply in debt and unable to make a pro“t? I cant imagine, even in my most bizarre moments, how Wall Street decided that Uber is worth $120 billion. That amount is a pumpŽ amount to help Uber, which, as your broker says, may go public by mid-2019. A pump amount is an Arabic numeral with a dollar sign before it that fee-hungry investment bankers pull from their bums to encourage investors who are losing their enthusiasm. In this case, they may even raise it to $150 billion or $200 billion „ even though Uber has publicly stated that it doesnt expect to be pro“table for at least three years. Please tell me, in the name of all things good and wonderful, how an honest group of people could value a company that has only foreseeable losses at $120 billion. This sounds like an SECand FINRA-approved scam to keep new investors starry-eyed. Now investors will more enthusiastically buy Uber, permitting early investors „ Microsoft, Fidelity, Miley Cyrus, Tiger Global Management, Britney Spears, TPG Growth, the Qatar Investment Authority et al., who invested billions with Uber „ to get their money back at nuclear returns. Meanwhile, some Uber employees who wont wait for an initial public offering are selling their shares at $33, which is a monumental discount to Ubers cockamamie $120 billion valuation. They could be the smart ones; that $120 billion, all puffery and promise, is about what the Big Three automakers are worth, combined. After the IPO, shareholders may be as mad as a foaming camel with a bad case of piles, though its also possible theyll be as happy as hogs on ice in the winter sunshine. For 60 years, Zoetis was the animal health division of P“zer. Then, in February 2013, P“zer completed an unexciting IPO at $25 a share. But Zoetis (ZTS-$90) is a very exciting company. It develops, manufactures and commercializes animal health medications and vaccines for livestock and companion animals. For 2017, ZTS reported revenues of $5.3 billion and earned $3.05 a share. ZTS focuses its research and medications speci“cally on (livestock) cattle, swine, sheep, poultry and “sh and on (companion animals) dogs, cats and horses. Livestock revenues are up 7 percent year over year, and companion animal revenues are up 17 percent. Livestock revenues from anti-infectives, vaccines, parasiticides, medicated feed additives and other pharmaceuticals accounted for 64 percent of ZTS 2017 revenues. And about 50 percent of ZTS revenues derive from overseas. In 2018, revenues should come in at $5.7 billion, with earnings of $3.12 a share. And impressive net pro“t margins, plus growing sales, suggest ZTS will have $6.1 billion in revenues and earnings of $4.10 by 2021. ZTS has a strong balance sheet, excellent management, a good sales team and highly respected products, and your sisters brokers right. Email Malcolm Berko at and Zoetis MalcolmBERKOC By KEN THOMASASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump and Democrats are delivering competing closing arguments during the “nal weekend before Tuesdays elections, but their messages are complicated by a deadly shooting in a politically pivotal state. Trump aimed to drum up voter turnout with events Saturday in Belgrade, Montana, and Pensacola, Florida, about 200 miles west of Floridas capital, Tallahassee, where two people were shot to death and “ve others wounded at a yoga studio on Friday night. Vice President Mike Pence helped embattled Gov. Scott Walker, R-Wis., and then was meeting up with Trump in Florida to rally Republicans behind Rick Scott, who is trying to unseat Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, and former Rep. Ron DeSantis, who hopes to succeed Scott as governor. DeSantis has been in a tight contest against Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who broke off campaigning after the shooting in his hometown. Gillum had appeared earlier Friday with former President Barack Obama. Democrats were fanning out across the country to help the party stoke turnout in their effort to capture seats in Congress and win several races for governor. Former Vice President Joe Biden was campaigning in Ohio with former Obama administration of“cial Richard Cordray, who is attempting to become governor in a high-pro“le contest. A look at campaign activities on Saturday:FLORIDA SHOOTINGThe “nal stretch of the campaign was brie”y disrupted by the shooting Friday evening at a Tallahassee yoga studio. Scott and Gillum both rushed back to the state capital after the gunman killed two people and injured “ve others before killing himself. Shortly before midnight, Gillum and Scott met with victims who had been taken to a hospital near the shopping center where the shooting took place. Gillum, who has clashed with Scott in the past, thanked the governor for his care and considerationŽ by visiting the victims. Both Gillum and Scott planned to return to campaigning on Saturday with stops in central Florida. Scott was expected to be with Trump when he holds a rally later in the day in Pensacola, while Gillum was to attend a get out the vote concert with Jimmy Buffett in West Palm Beach. DeSantis, Gillums Republican opponent in the governors race, has repeatedly criticized Tallahassees crime rate in his campaign speeches. Police have not yet identi“ed a motive behind the shooting.IMMIGRATIONIn Montana, Trump pushed back on criticism that he is focusing too much on immigration rhetoric during the closing days of the election season. Trump said during his rally that he also talks about economic gains, but can only go for 4 or 5 minutes.Ž After that, he said, what I do is talk about some of the problems.Ž Said Trump: When were “xing a problem or “xed a problem theres no reason to go on about it for 45 minutes.Ž Trump has focused his closing midterm argument on immigration, stoking anxiety about several caravans of Central American migrants traveling to the southern border. Hes also threatening constitutionally enshrined birthright citizenship.GEORGIA ROBOCALLIn Georgia, a robocall apparently paid for by a white supremacist group directly injected racism into a governors race already fraught with race-laden debates over ballot access and voter suppression. Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp joined together in condemning the automated telephone call that featured a voice impersonating Oprah Winfrey, the billionaire media star who campaigned in Georgia for Abrams Thursday. The call concluded by saying it was paid for by The Road to Power, a group organized by Scott Rhodes of Idaho, who has been linked to several other incendiary robocalls, including a recent effort in Florida, where Gillum would become the “rst black governor in state history. Kemp issued a statement calling the tactic vileŽ and contrary to the highest ideals of our state and country,Ž adding a condemnation of any person or organization that peddles this type of unbridled hate and unapologetic bigotry.Ž Abrams campaign also blasted the move but criticized Kemp and Trump, who will campaign together in Georgia Sunday. The campaign said Trump and Kemp had contributed to a poisonous atmosphere and Kemp has been silent on previous racially loaded attacks on Abrams.PENCECampaigning in Wisconsin, Pence pushed back against the notion that Democrats will sweep to victory in Tuesdays elections. I keep hearing about this blue wave,Ž Pence said. Lets make sure that blue wave hits a red wall in the Badger State.Ž Pence and Walker addressed more than 500 supporters in northwest Wisconsin, where the two-term governor told them, I need your help now more than ever.Ž Walker noted that recent polls have shown him tied with Democrat Tony Evers. Pence pointed to the caravan of immigrants traveling through Mexico toward the U.S. southern border and claimed it was being driven by the dangerous policies of Democrats.Ž The audience chanted, Build that wall!ŽWISCONSIN REPUBLICANSHundreds of northwest Wisconsin Republicans huddled together in 40-degree temperatures waiting to enter the shipping warehouse in Hudson, Wisconsin, where Pence rallied supporters for Walker. Walker is in a “ght for his political career just three days before the election. Polls show Walker knotted with Evers, Wisconsins superintendent of schools. Walker supporter Sue Hodgson described herself as nervous, more than excited.Ž Were here to show our support,Ž Hodgson, of nearby River Falls, Wisconsin, said. I just hope its enough.Ž Walker needs to shore up northern Wisconsin and turn out conservatives in the suburban counties around Milwaukee to overcome intensity among Democratic-leaning voters in Milwaukee and Madison. Walker has de“ed the odds before, beating a recall election in 2012 mounted after he signed controversial legislation in 2011 stripping public employees of union rights. Its going to be very close,Ž said Ronald Godden, who traveled more than two hours north from near LaCrosse to attend the rally. People know he got us out of the hole. We know hes a Godly man. Thats the most important thing to me.ŽTrump, Democrats vying for support in final midterm push AP PHOTOSPresident Donald Trump speaks during a campaign rally at Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport, Saturday, in Belgrade, Mont.

Supporters hold up signs as they wait to hear President Donald Trump speak at a campaign rally Saturday, in Pensacola.(TNS) LOS ANGELES „ The Trump administration lost its bid to throw out a lawsuit by immigrant children who say they are denied access to lawyers or given a hearing to challenge their con“nement by the Of“ce of Refugee Resettlement. U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee at a hearing Friday in Los Angeles denied the governments request to dismiss the lawsuit. The case was brought by seven children who are detained as unaccompanied minors and who have relatives in the U.S. that want to take care of them. The claim that the U.S. violates their constitutional due process rights could provide an extra legal hurdle for the Trump administrations plans to get around a 1997 agreement that restricts the governments ability to detain immigrant children. In a July ruling, Gee denied the U.S.s request to modify the so-called Flores settlement as wholly without meritŽ and faulted the administration for an ill-considered executive actionŽ that led to the separation of children from their parents when families were apprehended trying to cross into the U.S. at the Mexican border. The case is Lucas R. v. Azar, 18-cv-05741, U.S. District Court, Central District of California (Los Angeles).Trump administration must face claims by immigrant children

This weekends Class 2A high school state championship rounds were no exception for both the Port Charlotte High boys team and individual Meadow Southworth from Lemon Bay. The elevation change, the tricky pin placement baiting golfers into a trap, it all made for a constant struggle, but one they can learn from. I think it was a big wake-up call for them,Ž Port Charlotte coach Rodney Taylor said following the “nal round. Conditions yesterday were windy. Conditions today were cold and windy, plus a tough course equals high scores. They experienced that today, but I think all in all they had a great time.Ž The Pirates entered Saturdays “nal round in 13th out of 16 teams vying for a state title and exited in the same position. Coming in they knew that was a long shot, but got the chance to play at an elite course with above average competition. Junior Marc Kaneko-Fujii came into the “nal round leading the Pirates and tied for 23rd place individually after shooting an 80 on the par-72 El Campeon course. He “nished 21-over for the tournament tying him for 33rd place out of 96. Kaneko-Fujii struggled on Day 2, carding a 13-over 85. Despite making solid tee shots „ like putting it feet from the pin on the tight Par-3 8th hole surrounded by water „ he couldnt string multiple shots together. Im really relieved that its over,Ž Kaneko-Fujii said. There wasnt a whole lot going for me from the start.

For more than 26 years, my dream was to be a staff writer for The Florida Horse; and my love for the Sunshine State, Ocala, Hallandale Beach and Oldsmar is palpable. I can remember going to an Ocala Breeders Sales Company 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale at Calder Race Course in Miami Gardens, and Scott Davis was sitting down at a table, interviewing none other than Mr. Campbell. When my career as a journalist had become somewhat static, I went to work for Adena Springs South, a Thoroughbred farm just north of Ocala, in the maintenance division. One of the places I applied to was the Aiken Standard, in Aiken, South Carolina, the home of Dogwood Stable. I hated to leave the Ocala area, but there was opportunity in a new market, a place that I would make my home for the next decade. The Aiken Training By Joe GiglioTHE NEWS & OBSERVER (RALEIGH, N.C.) (TNS)RALEIGH, N.C. „ After back-to-back losses, N.C. State needed a win. Florida State provided the perfect antidote on Saturday. The Wolfpack got a career game from senior Reggie Gallaspy and three touchdowns from freshman Ricky Person to defeat the Seminoles, 4728, and qualify for a bowl game in the process. N.C State (6-2, 3-2 ACC) had dropped consecutive ACC games to Clemson and Syracuse after a 5-0 start to the season. The Wolfpack defense had been stretched in those two losses but was able to “nd some footing. Mix in 16 penalties (for 121 yards) on Florida State (4-5, 2-5) with a 125-yard performance by receiver Jakobi Meyers and four “eld goals by Chris Dunn, and N.C. State was able to give coach Dave Doeren his second straight win over FSU (and “rst in Raleigh) to qualify for the postseason for the “fth straight year. The Wolfpack forced two turnovers in the “rst half and scored on “ve of its “rst six possessions to jump out to a 27-7 lead in the second quarter. Person, who missed the Syracuse game with multiple injuries, had touchdown runs of 1 and 4 yards in his return. He also had a 2-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter.

Fortunately for the Gators (6-3, 4-3 Southeastern Conference), they wont have to face the senior and possible “rst-round draft pick again. They might have seen the last of Feleipe Franks, too. Coach Dan Mullen benched Franks late in the third quarter „ the home crowd cheered wildly „ and backup Kyle Trask promptly directed a 75-yard touchdown drive in which he converted two fourth downs.

The problems are so plentiful, the coach just is not quite sure what to do. All-Star guards John Wall and Bradley Beal lead the Wizards into their game against the visiting New York Knicks on Sunday with a 1-7 record, including 0-3 at home, and “ve consecutive losses overall. Patience is running low from everybody,Ž Beal said. Weve got to do it more collectively. The only way were going to get out of this slump is weve got to do it together.Ž Their defense already was the worst in the NBA, giving up 122.4 points per game, before allowing even more than that in a 134-111 setback against Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday night. It just looks like nobodys on the same page. I mean, like, if one person gets beat or somebody gives up a wide-open shot, nobody is there to help that person or pick that person up. Got to all be on one string,Ž Wall said. You cant teach effort. You cant teach heart. Youve got to go out there and compete. Thats just something youve got to be born with.Ž The transition defense, in particular, is absent. Washingtons rebounding isnt much better. Its second unit „ which Brooks often deploys without a starter to lead the way „ is slumping and turned a 30-all contest against OKC into a 79-50 blowout by halftime. Turnovers have become a real issue, with Beal and Wall combining for 12 on Friday. So how will Brooks “x all of that? Everythings open. We have to “gure out ways to play better in all the 48 minutes that were on the ”oor, whether its going with a smaller rotation or its playing other guys. I have to “gure it out,Ž he said. We cant just keep watching the same thing over and over and over and expect things are going to change.Ž Against the Thunder, the Wizards led by 10 points in the “rst quarter, but were run off the court in the second, outscored by 24 in that period alone. Thats where they killed us,Ž Wall said. When were not making shots, we dont defend at a high level.Ž The Wizards heard boos from spectators as the Thunder pulled away and piled on. We know the fans are getting impatient with it. Ted is probably impatient with it,Ž Beal said, referring to team owner Ted Leonsis. So weve just got to do it.Ž Otherwise, this season is on the verge of spiraling out of control. Last season, when Wall sat out 41 games because of a bad knee, Washington was the Eastern Conferences No. 8 seed and lost in the “rst round of the playoffs to No. 1 seed Toronto. There were questions about chemistry, defense and rebounding. Team architect Ernie Grunfeld hoped to help those last two areas by adding center Dwight Howard. But Howard wasnt able to play in a Wizards uniform until Friday after dealing with a sore backside. And while his debut looked promising at the outset „ 13 of his 20 points came in the “rst quarter „ the result was the same for the team. Dwight,Ž Brooks noted, was a bright spot.Ž Those have been few and far between lately for the Wizards during what their coach called a tough patch.Ž That might be underselling it. No one in the NBA has a worse record. We cant keep looking at the negatives, negatives, negatives,Ž Beal said, because its just going to continue to brainwash us and kill us mentally.ŽWith NBAs worst D, other issues, Walls Wizards start 1-7 AP PHOTOWashington Wizards guard John Wall (2) goes to the basket against Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George during the second half of an NBA basketball game Friday, Nov. 2, 2018, in Washington. By STEPHEN WHYNOAP HOCKEY WRITERAleksander Barkov is quick to point out the NHL is so popular in Finland that tickets to two games in Helsinki sold out in less than “ve minutes. It shows how much they love the game,Ž the Florida Panthers captain said. Theres good reason to do that every year.Ž The NHL is planning just that after Commissioner Gary Bettman announced initial plans for a 2019 season-opener in Prague, two regular-season games in Stockholm and exhibitions in Germany and Switzerland. The Panthers and Winnipeg Jets played the 24th and 25th regular-season games outside North America on Thursday and Friday at a packed Hartwall Arena in the Finnish capital. As the league sows seeds of interest in new markets like China, it is also continuing to cultivate interest in established hockey countries like Sweden, Finland and the Czech Republic. And theres a modest proposal for continuing to stoke the interest in the sport in Scandinavia and across Europe. One thing that I know former players have been talking about is maybe more games earlier on the weekends so they can actually watch,Ž said Washington Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom, who is Swedish. Prime time here is middle of the night there. To make it more popular in Europe and Sweden, I think more games in the middle of the day on the weekends would be great. Thats how you can get it more popular.Ž A crowded sports calendar in the U.S. with the NFL and college football going on during the “rst half of the season makes that a challenge. Not counting the three games this season taking place in Europe, just 127 regular-season NHL games „ roughly 10 percent of the full schedule „ start early enough in North America that fans in places in Western and Central Europe can watch before a late evening bedtime. Even with games on Thursday, Sunday and Monday nights to “ll prime-time spots in the U.S., traditional Sunday afternoon kickoffs have helped the NFL become bigger in Europe. Games at Wembley Stadium in London feature fans in jerseys of just about every team, not just the two playing, and the influence goes beyond England. In Denmark, the NFL (became) quite popular like 10, 15 years ago because they started games in the afternoon, so people could start watching at dinner time and they could just keep watching a new game,Ž Capitals center Lars Eller said. I would welcome more afternoon games.Ž The NHL on NBCŽ games that start at 12:30 p.m. Eastern on Sunday largely after the American football season ends fit that bill. And with more teams choosing to skip morning skates altogether, afternoon starts wouldnt throw off game-day routines to the point that theres pushback from players. Whenever that happens, games at 12 or 1 p.m. Eastern time, its like 7 oclock in Finland or (nighttime) in Europe, so people can see,Ž Barkov said. Of course theres a big audience there.Ž Bettman said he is not sure hockey can grow more in places like Sweden and Finland where there are already strong domestic leagues and a steady flow of talented players reaching the NHL. What we need to do is continue to work to keep it at the extraordinarily high level that its at,Ž he said. Bettman and Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly brushed aside the idea of basing an NHL team in Europe, saying it would need to be a group of teams and that no one has come up with a viable plan. They said staging an outdoor game in Europe is a possibility but not something likely to happen soon. More likely is a regular schedule of Global SeriesŽ games across Europe. Since the NHL opened the 1997-98 season in Japan, 24 of 31 teams have played overseas. The Philadelphia Flyers, New York Islanders, Dallas Stars, Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, Vegas Golden Knights and defending Stanley Cup champion Capitals are the only ones left. Probably not for long. Were happy to share our game,Ž Bettman said in Helsinki. Wed like to continue to encourage the enthusiasm, support and development that hockey gets by bringing the worlds best players and the worlds best league over here.ŽMore afternoon games could boost NHL popularity in Europe NBA: Washington Wizards NHL: Europe


The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018 SP Page 3 Track has a deep history, with 40 champions, including the aforementioned Kelso, having trained over the 1-mile oval on Two Notch Road. One of the bene“ts of being in Aiken was having the opportunity to talk with those who were involved in the Thoroughbred community, including Cot Campbell. I would spend many mornings walking the shedrow at the Legacy Stable barn, talking with Cot, Jack Sadler, Ron Stevens and Brad Stauffer. I would accompany them to the gap and starting gate at the training track, or make my way to the viewing stand to talk with these men, getting a quote or two. I was fortunate enough to have Mr. Campbell sign my copy of his book, Lightning in a Jar, his inscription, To Ben Baugh „ a great friend and a “ne sports writer! Cot Campbell.Ž When I captured “rst place honors from the South Carolina Press Association for Breaking News in 2009, it was about Dogwood Stables Millionaire and Classic winner Summer Squall. The 1990 Preakness winner had been euthanized at Lanes End Farm in Versailles, Ky., and I was covering a polo game. I had to shift my direction, and Cot made time for me, providing me with ample content through his incredibly well-articulated quotes, playing a large role in my writing one of the best pieces of my career. I knew his in”uence played a large role in my success because he understood I loved Thoroughbred racing, more than anything in the world. I didnt come from an af”uent, well-connected family, any success Ive had, has come from hard work and passion. And Cot understood that. His in”uence allowed me to cover the Eclipse Awards in Miami Beach at the Fontainebleau, the Preakness in Baltimore, where I had a chance to see Aikenite carry the hopes of a community in the middle jewel of Thoroughbred racings Triple Crown and to Saratoga Springs, where I walked the shedrow of Todd Pletchers barn with Cot, to look at a horse in his stall before the Travers Stakes, the athlete who gave me the biggest story of my career. There have been many tributes to Cot Campbell, over the past few days; and rightfully so. He was everything that theyve said, a visionary, a pioneer, a pillar of the sport. He brought so many new people into Thoroughbred racing. Every time I had the opportunity to hear him speak before an audience, it was as if I was watching a great entertainer perform. He had so much charisma and magnetism. He consistently brought the house down with his stories about racing. Theres never been a better raconteur. People left the room laughing and smiling. He was an incredibly bright, extremely wellread and articulate and had an amazing memory. He de“ned the grace and class so many people have alluded to over the past few days. Our relationship grew stronger over time. Initially, I had a hard time adjusting, missing Florida and Ocala, but I persevered and even though there were times where we had our differences, Cot made my journey bearable during those nascent stages. The Dogwood monthly newsletter was an invaluable source of information, and Mary Jane Howells help and expertise played a large role in my development as a journalist. The conversations Cot and I had about Dogwood Stables stakes winners Summer Squall, Storm Song, Wallenda, Limehouse, Cotton Blossom, Aikenite and Palace Malice still resonate with me. Palace Malice gave me the story of my career. I wrote an advance about him, prior to his second career start at Saratoga, a race the son of the 2007 and 2008 Horse of the Year Curlin, would win. There began my greatest journey. I was in the Aiken Standard newsroom watching the 2013 Belmont Stakes on the large screen television, when Palace Malice won the third jewel of the Triple Crown. The City of Aiken was ecstatic. Cot Campbell went out of his way to make time for me, providing me with content that made my story sing. Its true; he had a smile that was infectious, and a wonderful woman standing behind him, in his wife Anne. I was fortunate enough to get to know his daughter Lila and granddaughter Campbell Glenn a little, having interacted with them in Aiken. It was great to see Cot and Anne around town at the Blessing of the Hounds in Hitchcock Woods, the Aiken County Historical Museum, the Aiken Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame or in Camden at the Colonial Cup. I still have my Palace Malice button. It was Cot who provided me with access to the walking ring in Saratoga before Palace Malices start in the Travers. However, it was our weekly visits at the Dogwood of“ces on Chaffee Lane in Aiken, that I cherish the most. Cot Campbell always made time for me, one of the Thoroughbred racings pillars made me feel as if I was as important as any celebrity or person of extreme wealth. He had an ability to make anyone feel comfortable no matter the setting. I will miss him. He changed the complexion of my life. Just as there will never be another Kelso, there will never be another Cot Campbell.IMPACTFROM PAGE 1in my swing last week and yeah, Im just happy its over.Ž Nobody on the team knows the challenges this course presents better than him as hes made it to the state “nals each of his three years. Ž(The course) is super challenging, but its nothing I cant get,Ž said Kaneko-Fujii, who previously “nished seventh as a freshman and 27th as a sophomore. I was just stressing way too much, I had a lot of pressure on me. I learned that its not gonna go your way and you just have to be OK with that. Golf is hard and you dont need to make it even more challenging by being tough on yourself.Ž Three of the four Pirate golfers bettered their scores in Round 2. Sophomore Zack Starkey “nished second on the team and 76th overall with rounds of 96 and 94. Senior Anthony Hodges, playing in his “nal high school match, bettered his score three strokes from 98 to 95 and “nished third on the team. Freshman Stephen Lomski and sophomore Ben Goldman rounded out the team with Lomski improving from 114 to 107 and Goldman shooting rounds of 102 and 110. On the opposite side of the clubhouse on the Las Colinas course, Southworth was working her way through her own struggles. She teed off in the cold and windy morning and said she struggled to “nd her stroke putting. I couldnt putt to save my life, at all,Ž Southworth said. Its a tough course, but it was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it.Ž Southworth shot 84 for the “rst round and 89 in the second as she “nished in 36rd place out of 93. Though her “nal match wasnt what she desired or anticipated, she can now re”ect on the accomplishments shes earned as a Lady Manta. I wish I had the chance to do it again, but unfortunately I dont,Ž she said. I feel pretty good about it. I wish I had played well for the last high school event Ill be playing in, but I did “nish on a better nine. Im pretty proud of what Ive done and some of the scores that Ive had at Lemon Bay.Ž Though Southworth wont get the opportunity to get back to the state championships, the majority of the Pirates might. Losing only Hodges to graduation, Taylor will most likely return four members with state championship experience. Now knowing what it takes, they should come back with an ignited “re. I think we have a shot of getting here next year,Ž Taylor said. And I think this is a great learning experience for them. If we get back next year I think it will be a big difference. Theyll know how to take on the practice round better, theyll know what to expect playing this course.

Page 4 SP The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018 WASHINGTON „ The Washington Nationals have signed former St. Louis Cardinals reliever Trevor Rosenthal to a one-year contract with a conditional option for 2020. General manager Mike Rizzo announced the deal Saturday. The contract guarantees Rosenthal $7 million, and he can earn an additional $8 million in performance bonuses. Rosenthal hasnt pitched since 2017 after undergoing Tommy John surgery. The 28-year-old is a hard-throwing righthander with 121 career saves in the majors, all with St. Louis. Rosenthal had a career-high 48 saves in 2015 and was a National League All-Star. He had only 14 saves in 2016 and 11 in 2017 before getting injured. The Cardinals released Rosenthal in November 2017, a few months after he had surgery.Nationals sign former Cardinals reliever Trevor Rosenthal By DANICA COTOASSOCIATED PRESSCAGUAS, Puerto Rico „ Hundreds of arms stretched into the sky in the hometown of Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora on Saturday as fans took pictures and video of the “rst man from Puerto Rico to lead a team to a World Series championship. Cora held up the trophy that he had been cradling in his arms as he arrived in the city of Caguas with pitchers David Price and Eduardo Rodriguez and catcher Christian Vazquez, among others including Red Sox chairman Tom Werner. The Red Sox beat the Los Angeles Dodgers on Oct. 28 to win their fourth championship in 15 years. Fans dressed in red and blue had gushed about Coras visit before his arrival. He put us on the map,Ž said 26-year-old Miguel Martinez, who was slow dancing to salsa with his girlfriend as they waited for Cora. My eyes “lled with tears when he won the championship because this is something historic.Ž Some fans had driven more than an hour to receive the manager and praised how he helped Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria hit more than a year ago amid a 12-year recession. When 43-year-old Cora negotiated his contract last October, he asked his team to help with relief efforts, and they eagerly pitched in. Despite everything that has happened, we have a bit of happiness on the side,Ž said Red Sox fan Arleen Cruz, who drove to Caguas with her husband from the southern town of Humacao to receive the players. The two have been Red Sox fans since 1972. Puerto Ricos name couldnt be held up higher,Ž said Cruzs husband, Ramon Reyes, who was clad in a Red Sox hat, T-shirt and towel slung over his shoulder. They mingled with other fans stopping to buy food, beer and merchandise from roadside vendors as the smell of fried empanadillas and other local specialties wafted through the air.

By STEPHEN HAWKINSAP SPORTS WRITERLos Angeles Dodgers third base coach Chris Woodward was hired as manager of the Texas Rangers on Saturday, six weeks after Jeff Banister was “red. He received a threeyear contract with a club option for 2022. He will be introduced at a news conference Monday. Woodward inherits a team that went 67-95 and “nished last in the AL West, with the focus turning to the development of younger players. Texas had its “rst consecutive losing seasons since 2005-08. The hiring ended a process during which general manager Jon Daniels and the Rangers interviewed more than 10 candidates, including bench coach Don Wakamatsu after he served as interim coach the “nal 10 games of the season. Woodward was interviewed this week after the Dodgers “nished their second straight season in which they advanced to the World Series, losing both times. The last team before Los Angeles that appeared in consecutive World Series without winning the title was Texas in 2010 and 2011. We interviewed a number of strong candidates during an extensive interview process for our managerial role and believe we have found the right “t in Chris Woodward,Ž Daniels said in a statement released by the team. We look forward to working with him and everyone on the baseball staff to develop and grow a culture that will lead to success for many years to come.Ž Daniels has hired three managers in his 13 seasons as the Rangers GM, and all were “rst-time MLB managers. Texas won its only American League pennants during Ron Washingtons eight seasons before Banister won two AL West titles in his four seasons. Two candidates Texas interviewed were hired last month as managers by other teams, David Bell in Cincinnati and Rocco Baldelli in Minnesota. The hiring of Woodward left the Baltimore Orioles, who “red Buck Showalter after the season, as the only MLB team with a managerial vacancy. The 42-year-old Woodward spent the past three years on the staff of manager Dave Roberts, after working for Seattle the previous three years. He started his coaching career as minor league in“eld coordinator for the Mariners in 2013, then joined their big league staff later that year. He was Seattles in“eld coach in 2014 and the “rst base coach in 2015. Chris brings high energy, outstanding leadership and communication skills, a strong knowledge of the game and its evolving strategies, and great integrity „ attributes that we feel are vital for our next manager,Ž Daniels said. We believe these traits will resonate with our players, our staff, and our fans. He has also been a big part of a very successful stretch in Los Angeles.Ž As a player, Woodward spent 12 seasons (19992011) with “ve teams „ Toronto, the New York Mets, Seattle, Atlanta and Boston. He hit .239 with 33 home runs and 191 RBIs while playing every position except pitcher and catcher. Woodward was teammates with Adrian Beltre for a short period during the 2009 season with the Mariners. Beltre, who has 3,166 career hits, just completed his 21st big league season and hasnt said yet if he will return to play for the Rangers again next year. When Beltre went on the disabled list during the 2009 season, Woodward started 13 games at third base in his place. Soon after Beltres return that August, Woodward was selected off waivers by the Boston Red Sox. The Rangers went 87-75 in 2009 before their two World Series seasons, then lost in the ALs “rst one-and-done wild-card game in 2012. They ended the 2013 regular season with a loss to Tampa Bay in a wild-card tiebreaker. When Banister was “red Sept. 21 with 10 games left in this season, Daniels acknowledged that the decision wasnt based on the record and said instead that it was time for a new voice in leadership. Banister was under contract through next season. Woodward is a native of Covina, California, as is Michael Young, the Rangers career leader in hits and games played who is now a special assistant to the general manager. They are the same age but played at different high schools.Woodward hired as Rangers manager after 3 years with DodgersLast-place Texas Rangers hire Dodgers 3rd base coach Chris Woodward as manager AP PHOTOIn this April 3, 2018, “le photo, Los Angeles Dodgers third base coach Chris Woodward (45) works the baseline during a game.

MLB: Boston Red Sox MLB: Texas Rangers MLB: Chicago Cubs MLB: Washington NationalsBy JAY COHENAP SPORTS WRITERCHICAGO „ The Chicago Cubs exercised their $20 million option on Cole Hamels on Friday, solidifying their rotation for next year, and traded fellow left-hander Drew Smyly to the Texas Rangers. Hamels, who turns 35 in December, went 4-3 with a 2.36 ERA in 12 starts after he was acquired in a July 27 trade with Texas „ a frequent trade partner for Chicago since Theo Epstein took over the Cubs front of“ce in 2011. Had the Cubs declined the option and paid a $6 million buyout, the Rangers would have paid the Cubs an additional $6 million. The 29-year-old Smyly is heading to Texas after missing his only year in Chicago as part of his recovery from Tommy John surgery in June 2017. The Cubs also parted with a player to be named in exchange for a player to be named. Smyly signed a $10 million, two-year contract with Chicago last December. He was healthy at the end of last season, but the contending Cubs ran out of time in terms of bringing him back. Chicago also claimed in“elder Jack Reinheimer off waivers from the New York Mets. The 26-year-old Reinheimer hit .167 in 21 games with New York this year. Hamels gives manager Joe Maddon a deep group of starting pitchers as the Cubs try for their “fth consecutive playoff appearance. Jon Lester, Kyle Hendricks, Jose Quintana and Yu Darvish also are expected to return, with Mike Montgomery and Tyler Chatwood waiting in the wings. Hamels, a former “rst-round pick, made his major league debut with Philadelphia in 2006. He is 156-114 with a 3.40 ERA in 13 big league seasons. He was working on perhaps the worst season of his career when Chicago got him from Texas for right-hander Eddie Butler, minor league pitcher Rollie Lacy and a player to be named. He was 5-9 with a 4.72 ERA in 20 starts with the last-place Rangers at the time of the trade, but the Cubs felt a change of scenery and a pennant race might help him get back on track. They were right. Hamels had an instant impact with Chicago, going 4-0 with a sparkling 0.79 ERA in his “rst “ve starts with the team. He was unbeaten with the Cubs until he was hit hard in a loss at Arizona in his 10th start on Sept. 19. When the NL wild-card game went into extra innings, Hamels made just his second major league relief appearance and responded with two scoreless innings in Chicagos 2-1 loss to Colorado. He is 7-6 with a 3.41 ERA in 17 career playoff appearances. The option completes the deal Hamels signed with Philadelphia in July 2012, bringing the total value to $158 million for seven years. Hamels struck out 13 while pitching a no-hitter at Wrigley Field in his “nal start with Philadelphia in 2015. He was traded to Texas six days later, and helped the Rangers to two AL West titles. Earlier this week, the Cubs exercised their $6.25 million option for Pedro Strop and fellow reliever Brandon Kintzler picked up his $5 million player option. Strop, one of the baseballs most consistent relievers since he was acquired in a July 2013 trade with Baltimore, went 6-1 with 13 saves and a 2.26 ERA in 60 appearances last season.Cubs exercise option on Hamels, trade Smyly to Texas AP PHOTOIn this Aug. 17, 2018, photo, Chicago Cubs starter Cole Hamels pitches to a Pittsburgh Pirates batter.

Page 6 SP The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018By JOEY KNIGHTTAMPA BAY TIMESTAMPA „ A collection of casualties and injuries forced USF to piece together a starting lineup on an otherwise glorious afternoon Saturday. But the Bulls most signi“cant ailments call for far more than a Band-Aid “x. Its performance „ or lack thereof „ against sub-.500 foe Tulane made that vivid. On a day bereft of humidity, the Bulls (7-2, 3-2) seemed mostly absent as well. Besieged again by porous run defense, predictable offensive play selection and overall lethargy, the Bulls let the Green Wave score 34 unanswered points in a 41-15 defeat. Throw in last weekends 57-36 loss at Houston, and the Bulls have surrendered 98 total points in their last two games, a program record for back-to-back contests. Saturdays loss, for all practical (if not mathematical) intents, eliminated USF from contention in the American Athletic Conferences East Division, and ruined any remote aspiration for a New Years Six bowl appearance. The only thing the Bulls clinched was another appearance in a low-tier December bowl game. USF played without starting middle linebacker Nico Sawtelle (shoulder), tight end Mitch Wilcox (ankle), defensive tackle Kevin Kegler (unspeci“ed) and safety Mekhi LaPointe (unspeci“ed). Top tackler Khalid McGee also was held out, presumably for shoving an assistant coach on the sideline in last weeks loss at Houston. The announced Raymond James Stadium crowd of 31,388, a hearty chunk of which left early in the third quarter, was to left to speculate about how many of the other Bulls showed up. Tulane (4-5, 2-3), which has lost to the likes of UAB, Wake Forest and SMU, gashed the Bulls for 364 rushing yards, becoming the “fth USF opponent this season to collect 220 or more yards on the ground. Green Wave backs Corey Dauphine and Darius Bradwell “nished with 120 and 134, respectively, both single-handedly out-rushing USF (94). And seven days after repeatedly getting torched by the deep ball at Houston, the Bulls again proved susceptible against a team that “nished with 61 passing yards. The breakdown occurred when left-hander Justin McMillan scrambled from a collapsed pocket and ”ung a down“eld 50-50 ball to Darnell Mooney, who caught it over safety Nick Roberts for a 39-yard gain at USFs 3. That set up a Green Wave “eld goal. Less than “ve minutes later, Bulls freshman Johnny Ford mishandled a punt and fumbled, setting up Dauphines 21-yard scoring run two plays later that gave the Green Wave a 24-3 lead. Dauphine had 110 yards and two touchdowns on only 12 carries at halftime, nearly out-gaining the Bulls (126) by himself to that point. Unable to develop any sort of rhythm, USF went 0-for-6 on third down in the “rst half. Then, the mediocrity gave way to madcap. On the Bulls second offensive possession of the second half, veteran receiver Darnell Salomon hauled in a down“eld pass from Blake Barnett, but had it knocked loose by safety Tirise Barge. P.J. Hall scooped it up and returned it 17 yards to the Bulls 45. On the next Bulls possession, a Barnett throw intended for Salomon was de”ected and picked by linebacker Zachery Harris. The next play, Bradwell scored on a 73-yard run after the second, giving Tulane a 34-3 lead. By that point, it was all academic. Speaking of academics, USF still has that preeminent status and membership in the revered Phi Beta Kappa national honor society about which to gloat. Today, its football team certainly is nothing to brag about.

By PETE IACOBELLIAP SPORTS WRITERCLEMSON, S.C. „ Travis Etienne rushed for 153 yards and two touchdowns and 350-pound defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence add a 2-yard TD burst as No. 2 Clemson buried Louisville 77-16 on Saturday. The Tigers (6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference, No. 2 CFP) improved to 9-0 for the third time in four seasons and can wrap up their fourth ACC Atlantic Division title next week at Boston College. Trevor Lawrence threw a pair of early touchdowns for Clemson. Etienne went over the 1,000-yard rushing mark and scored his ACC-leading 15th touchdown. Tavien Feaster added 101 yards rushing for the Tigers. Freshman Lyn-J Dixon ran for 116 yards, the second time this season Clemson has had three runners with 100 or more yards. They “nished with a season high 492 yards rushing. Etienne and Feaster put Clemson up 14-0 less than three minutes into the game and the Tigers never let up on Louisville (2-7, 0-6). Linebacker Isaiah Simmons had a pick-six, the Tigers collected “ve sacks, coach Dabo Swinneys eldest son Will caught a TD pass and even Big Dex,Ž a junior defensive tackle projected as a cant-miss, NFL “rst rounder got in on the fun in the Tigers Fridge Package.Ž A week ago, Dexter Lawrence led the way for fellow lineman Christian Wilkins to score as a tailback. This time, Trevor Lawrence handed off to Dexter Lawrence as the upback who then bulled his way across the goal. Clemsons players erupted with joy with Wilkins hoisting the massive Lawrence into the air. Etienne got the Tigers off to a fast start with a 10-yard scoring run just 75 seconds in and Feaster followed with a 70-yard TD run on the “rst play of Clemsons next series. Louisville never had a chance after that. It lost its sixth straight game, its longest losing streak since dropping 10 in a row between the 1997 and 1998 seasons. Clemson is on a major roll the past month, outscoring its past four opponents 240-36. The wins included turning an undefeated showdown with North Carolina State into a 41-7 rout two weeks ago before scoring the most points ever by an opponent at Florida States Doak S. Campbell Stadium in a 59-10 win.THE TAKEAWAYLouisville: The Cardinals look like theyre playing out the string under coach Bobby Petrino and have a dif“cult “nishing stretch with games at Syracuse, and home contests with North Carolina State and Kentucky left. Clemson: The Tigers should “nally face their “rst real test since rallying past Syracuse 27-23 back in September when they play at Boston College. A dif“cult road game could certainly challenge the poise of a young quarterback like Trevor Lawrence.VERY SNAPPYClemson left tackle Mitch Hyatt set a program record in the second quarter when he played his 3,362 snap for the Tigers. He surpassed former Clemson center Dalton Freeman, who played 3,361 snaps from 2009-12.UP NEXTLouisville wraps up its away schedule at Syracuse next Saturday night.

By STEVE MEGARGEEAP SPORTS WRITERLEXINGTON, Ky. „ DAndre Swift ran for a career-high 156 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries against Kentuckys vaunted defense and No. 6 Georgia beat the No. 11 Wildcats 34-17 on Saturday to wrap up its second straight Southeastern Conference Eastern Division title. Swift had an 83-yard breakaway in the third quarter that gave Georgia (8-1, 6-1, No. 6 College Football Playoff) a 28-3 lead. He also had a nifty 20-yard scoring run in the second period when the game was close. Elijah Holy“eld ran for a career-high 115 yards on 18 carries, scoring on a 4-yarder in the third quarter. Georgia rushed for a season-high 331 yards to earn a spot in the SEC championship game Dec. 1 in Atlanta. Its huge,Ž Georgia coach Kirby Smart said. Its not been easy. Its never easy. People I think sometimes get spoiled when you win. These are good programs. These are good teams. Give our kids a lot of credit because their backs were against the wall kind of two weeks in a row and they came out “ghting. They came out scratching and clawing.Ž Kentucky (7-2, 5-2, No. 9 CFP) has never reached the SEC championship game, which has been played every year since 1992. They beat us in all phases,Ž Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said. They really played a good football game. Theres many things we will take from this. Well learn an awful lot.Ž Kentucky entered the weekend with the nations top scoring defense and hadnt allowed anyone to exceed 20 points all year, but it couldnt slow down Georgias tandem of Swift and Holy“eld. Before Saturdays game, the only player to rush for as many as 75 yards against Kentucky was Texas A&Ms Trayveon Williams, who ran for 138 yards in a 2014 overtime victory over the Wildcats. Swift and Holy“eld were both over the 100-yard mark by the end of the third quarter. Kentucky dominated time of possession through the first 1 1/2 quarters, but still trailed 7-3. Thats when Swift started to give the Bulldogs some breathing room. With Georgia facing second-and-17, Swift made a move around a defender at the line of scrimmage, made another move between two Wildcats about five yards downfield and shed a tackle inside the 5 to complete a remarkable 20-yard touchdown run. Swifts touchdown gave Georgia a 14-3 late in the second quarter. Georgia fumbled away a scoring opportunity late in the first half but got the ball to open the second half and extended the lead to 21-3 on Holyfields touchdown. On Georgias next series, Smith raced through a big hole on the left side of the line and didnt appear to get touched on his 87-yard sprint to the end zone. Before that play, Kentucky hadnt allowed a run from scrimmage longer than 34 yards all season.No. 6 Georgia tops No. 11 Kentucky 34-17 to clinch SEC East COLLEGE FOOTBALL: No. 6 Georgia 34, No. 11 Kentucky 17 COLLEGE FOOTBALL: No. 2 Clemson 77, Louisville 16 COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Tulane 41, USF 15


The Sun | Sunday, November 4, 2018 SP Page 7By JOHN ZENORAP SPORTS WRITERAUBURN, Ala. „ Seth Williams caught an 11-yard touchdown pass from Jarrett Stidham with 1:41 left and Auburn rallied to beat No. 25 Texas A&M 28-24 on Saturday. The Tigers (6-3, 3-3 Southeastern Conference) sputtered early on offense but “nished with a 14-point outburst over the “nal 5:14 and the defense came up with big stops. Stidham delivered big on both “nal drives. Kellen Mond and the Aggies (5-4, 3-3) pushed the ball into Auburn territory on their “nal drive, converting a fourth-and-5. Then a holding call pushed them back across mid“eld and Monds desperation pass into the end zone was incomplete. Of“cials put one second back on the clock but Mond was sacked by Nick Coe on the “nal play. The Tigers, who had plummeted from a No. 8 ranking, had trailed 24-14 before staging the rally. Stidham started the “nal drive with a 47-yard pass to Ryan Davis, who spun away from defenders and raced down“eld. Then came Williams second touchdown catch in the back left corner of the end zone. Auburn had gotten new life with an interception by Noah Igbinoghene. Stidham led the Tigers down the “eld and completed two straight sideline passes to Darius Slayton to set up Chandler Coxs 1-yard touchdown run, making it 24-21. The defense held again and Christian Tutt returned a punt to the 42. Stidham completed 18 of 29 passes for 239 yards. Darius Slayton had eight catches for 107 yards. Auburn won despite running for just 19 yards on 21 carries. It was the fewest since gaining 18 against Mississippi State in 2000. Trayveon Williams ran for 107 yards and two touchdowns for Texas A&M. He caught “ve passes for 75 yards and a third score.THE TAKEAWAYTexas A&M: Didnt complete a pass until the “nal play of the “rst quarter, with Auburn unable to stop the run. Dropped its second straight game. Auburn: Fought back to avoid a tough loss. The Tigers running game still isnt producing, netting minus 14 yards in the “rst quarter. Will need to beat either No. 6 Georgia or top-ranked Alabama for a winning regular-season record.UP NEXTAuburn visits No. 6 Georgia after upsetting the Bulldogs last season before losing to them in the SEC championship game.

By MITCH STACYAP SPORTS WRITERCOLUMBUS, Ohio „ J.K. Dobbins ran for three touchdowns and Dwayne Haskins Jr. passed for two more as No. 8 Ohio State rallied in the second half and held off Nebraska 36-31 Saturday. After Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to JD Spielman to pull within “ve with 3 minutes left, Dobbins pounded away for two “rst downs to run out the clock. Before the late Nebraska score, Dobbins broke through the right side and romped for a 42yard touchdown with 5 minutes left to give Ohio State (8-1, 5-1 Big Ten, No. 10 CFP) breathing room. The Buckeyes much-maligned running game and defense “nally showed up in the second half. Dobbins rushed for a season-high 163 yards „ only his second 100yard game this season. Running back Mike Weber added 91 yards on the ground. Down 21-16 at half after the Cornhuskers (2-7, 1-5) turned two Ohio State fumbles into touchdown drives, the Buckeyes forced “ve straight punts and held Nebraska to a “eld goal when a drive stalled at the 1. Dobbins broke off his run between the center and right guard to cap the next series. Haskins fumbled twice and didnt look sharp at times but nevertheless threw for 231 yards, with a long touchdown pass to Johnnie Dixon and a shovel pass that Parris Campbell turned into a score. He also threw an interception. Nebraska freshman quarterback Adrian Martinez bested Haskins, who was in the Heisman Trophy conversation a month ago. Martinez threw for 266 yards and touchdown and rushed for two more. THE TAKEAWAYNebraska: The Huskers are a different team than the one that got out to an 0-6 start, with Martinez and running back Devine Ozigbo pushing Ohio State hard. Martinez continues to improve. Ohio State: The Buckeyes managed to break out after struggling in recent games, particularly in the 40-29 upset loss at Purdue on Oct. 20. UP NEXT:Nebraska: hosts Illinois on Saturday, Nov. 10.

Fuller was ejected from the game for a targeting penalty on the play. the exits. Lock and Missouri also torched Florida last year, winning 45-16 just days after the team parted ways with coach Jim McElwain. The Gators went into that one with an array of emotions. They had no excuses this time around. But Florida, which was eliminated from the SEC East race with a 36-17 loss against Georgia last week, came out ”at and didnt “nd a spark until it was too late. Lock had a lot to do with the lopsided affair, showing why hes considered a top NFL talent. His 41-yard throw to Hall down the sideline was perfect, setting up a touchdown run in which Lock held the defensive end before pitching the ball. And his TD throw to Okwuegbunam came after a pre-snap read and adjustment. Lock got plenty of help from his experienced offensive line and running backs. Damarea Crockett ran for 114 yards and a touchdown, and Larry Roundtree added 72 yards and a score. Roundtree scored three times against the Gators in 2017. Lock completed 15 of 20 passes for 228 yards and three TDs in that one. He hadnt been nearly as good against the SEC this season, completing 50 percent of his passes for 732 yards, with one touchdown and “ve interceptions, against Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and Kentucky.THE TAKEAWAYMissouri: The Tigers beat Florida for the fourth time in the last six meetings, including twice on homecoming. All six have been blowouts, with Floridas 21-3 victory in 2015 being the closest contest. Florida: The Gators opened a three-game homestand with a dud and looked lost on both sides of the ball, ending with the worst loss in Dan Mullens “rst year. POLL IMPLICATIONSFlorida could drop out of the Top 25 poll after backto-back lopsided losses to Georgia and Missouri.KEY INJURIESMizzou ruled out Okwuegbunam after halftime because of a bruised right shoulder. The Tigers also ruled out backup running back Tyler Badie because of a sprained right foot. ...

The return of right tackle Justin Witt, who also missed the Syracuse loss, helped, too. Quarterback Ryan Finley completed 21 of 27 passes for 240 yards with three touchdowns and was not sacked. FSU entered the game ranked in the top 20 nationally in sacks but couldnt get to Finley. An 8-yard touchdown pass from Finley to receiver Kelvin Harmon gave the Wolfpack a 17-0 lead at 11:33 in the second quarter. There were still holes in the Wolfpack secondary. N.C. State, which entered the game at No. 126 in the country in pass defense, gave up two 75-yard scoring drives to FSU in the “rst half. Sophomore quarterback James Blackman, in his “rst start of the season, connected with receiver Tamorrion Terry on a 35-yard pass to cut N.C. States lead to 17-7. Blackman also hit running back Cam Akers right before the half on an 8-yard touchdown to cut N.C. States lead to 27-14. Blackman “nished with 421 yards and four touchdowns but it wasnt enough to offset FSUs problems on defense and with penalties.FSUFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOFlorida State head coach Willie Taggart directs his players during the “rst half of an NCAA college football game against North Carolina State in Raleigh, N.C., Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018.

She was 83. Hulman George, the speedways chairman of the board emeritus, died in Indianapolis with her family at her side, the speedway said in a statement. Our mother was such a unique, wonderful person. She loved her family, friends, auto racing and animals with equal passion,Ž said Tony George, current chairman of IMS. She was a quiet pioneer in so many ways, from owning a race team in the 1950s and 1960s to overseeing a period of tremendous growth and evolution while chairman of the board at IMS.Ž Hulman George was IMS chairman from 1988 through 2016. Her father, Anton TonyŽ Hulman Jr., purchased the speedway in 1945 and saved it from demolition after World War II. Racing and the facility became a staple of Mari Hulman Georges life. Indianapolis fans recognized Hulman George as the individual who gave the command to start engines for the Indianapolis 500 and Brickyard 400 from the late 1990s until 2015. She was known by millions as the woman who gave the command to start engines for the Indianapolis 500 and other events at the Speedway, but her true legacy will be the generous and kind philanthropy she learned from her parents,Ž George said. That compassion and desire to help people and animals every day are the true hallmarks of her incredible life.Ž Hulman George was immersed in auto racing and became friends with many drivers during her teenage and early adult years. She joined with longtime family friend Roger Wolcott to form the HOW racing team, which “elded American Automobile Association (AAA) and United States Auto Club (USAC) Sprint and National Championship cars for several drivers, including Jerry Hoyt, Eddie Sachs, Tony Bettenhausen, Roger McCluskey and Elmer George, whom she married in 1957. George won the Midwest Sprint Car title in 1957 and “nished third in 1956 and 1958. Mari Hulman George co-owned an Indianapolis 500 entry in 1962 and 1963 that her husband drove. He “nished a career-best 17th in 1962 and received relief help from Paul Russo and A.J. Foyt during that race. Racing is “lled with passionate people, but youd be hard pressed to “nd anyone more passionate than Mari Hulman George,Ž said Tony Stewart, an Indiana native who grew up idolizing the Indy 500 and the speedway. Born Dec. 26, 1934 in Evansville as Mary Antonia Hulman, she never ventured far from Indiana. Hulman George attended Purdue University and was an Indianapolis community leader with her stewardship of the speedway. She launched numerous philanthropic efforts, including bene“ts for Indiana Special Olympics and complimentary “eld trips for Indianas schoolchildren. She focused on the arts, health care and, in particular, animal care. She served on the board for Hulman & Company, IMS and the IMS Foundation, as well as First Financial Bank, a publicly traded company headquartered in Terre Haute. Hulman George was especially close to four-time Indianapolis 500 winner Foyt, whom she met a year before his 1958 Indianapolis 500 debut. She and Foyt placed a commemorative golden brickŽ into the famous Yard of BricksŽ start-“nish line in May 2011 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the inaugural Indianapolis 500 and the 50th anniversary of Foyts 1961 victory. She hosted for years two events during the lead-in to the Indianapolis 500. The Racers PartyŽ took place annually on the opening weekend of the Month of MayŽ for the entrants of the Indy 500, and a Friends of the 50s and 60sŽ event was held the week between qualifying and the race to celebrate with racing veterans. She welcomed all drivers to the parties, setting a standard for providing red carpet treatment to all past and present Indianapolis 500 competitors when they came to the track regardless of their stature with the public. Mrs. George was committed to the long-term health of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway as a treasured Indiana asset, and her stewardship as chairman set the tone for staff and others involved with IMS,Ž said J. Douglas Boles, president of IMS. In addition to son Tony George, she is survived by three daughters, a stepdaughter, seven grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren and longtime companion Guy Trollinger. She was predeceased in death by her husband, Elmer, and a stepson.
