Hajney showed up wearing a red and white shirt, with American ” ag ” ip-” op earrings to complete her patriotic ensemble. She waited for election day to cast her ballot to get the full experience, stating its no different than Christmas or your birthday.Ž Voters were in and out at most polling locations in Charlotte County, with few lines. Poll workers said they got a steady stream of voters, with a few busier spurts throughout the day. Past the designating no solicitingŽ line, many held signs advocating their party but also simply thanking voters for doing their part in democracy. A guy coming out said, I didnt vote for your guy, and I said it doesnt matter,Ž said Victor Coscia, who held an Andrew Gillum sign in front of the event center. Coscia said no matter a persons views, by voting, theyre taking action and not just complaining about how things are. Hes been involved in politics since the 60s, during the time of civil rights, womens rights, and Vietnam, but said during his 30s, while raising a family, he had less time for it. Recently, hes jumped back in. In the past two years, Ive had the same sad feeling I had in the 60s,Ž he said. That were going in a bad direction, and weve got to make a change.Ž His wife, Marie Coscia, put her stance more bluntly. Theres too much division, and Trump has caused all of it, so when you vote for DeSantis, when you vote for Scott, youre voting for him,Ž she said. On the other side, Nicole Souder walked out of the event center after proudly voting for Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis, stating she was never very invested in politics until President Donald Trump came onto the scene. He was interesting,Ž she said. He challenges people „ the media, other politicians, and I like that. Hes not afraid to speak his mind.Ž THE SUN: OUR TOWN: ELECTION:By ANNE EASKERSTAFF WRITERThe Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ ce is searching for a retail theft suspect who is accused of attempting to drown a police dog after running from cops. Matthew Christopher Johnson, 37, of Port Charlotte, was detained on Nov. 2 by deputies during an inv estigation into a theft at the 7-Eleven in Port Charlotte, located at 3362 Tamiami Trail. Johnson and another man were stopped by a deputy in the parking lot after they were identi“ ed by the clerk as the suspe cts in the theft. While the deputy spoke with the store clerk, Johnson fled the scene on his bicycle. Deputies set up a perimeter, and a corporal arrived with his partner, K-9 Sparta, to track Johnson. K-9 Sparta and the corporal found Johnson standing in a nearby canal trying to hide behind a tree. He refused to comply with commands to lay down on the ground. Johnson then went for a backpack that he had nearby, at which time K-9 Sparta was released to apprehend him. Sparta apprehended Johnson on the right arm, but he dragged the dog by the head into the water and started pushing him under. Sparta let go of Johnson during the “ ght, and the corporal was able to pull him back to shore as Johnson swam across the canal and continued to ” ee from deputies. Johnson was not located and is now wanted by CCSO for retail theft, resisting an of“ cer without violence, and offenses against a police dog. Anyone with information on his whereabouts can contact CCSO or call the Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).Email: aeasker@sun-herald.comPolice dog almost drowned by fleeing suspect JOHNSON By SCOTT LAWSONNORTH PORT EDITORNORTH PORT „ Two women are hospitalized and children are receiving counseling after the adults fought one-another with shards of a broken coffee cup at a school bus stop. According to North Port Police, the incident began about 7:45 a.m. Tuesday at a school bus stop on the corner of Eager Street and Aero Avenue on North Ports southwest side. During the altercation, a coffee mug was broken. Pieces of the mug were then used as a weapon in a slashing manner,Ž North Port Police spokesperson Josh Taylor said in a statement. The two women, who have not been initially identi“ ed, were transported to hospitals. One suffered traumatic injuries and was taken by Bay” ite while the other was evacuated by ambulance to a nearby facility. Taylor said charges are pending but the investigation remains underway. This is an active investigation,Ž the statement said. We have interviewed other parents who witnessed the altercation.

The way to Heaven is Jesus. Jesus said, I am the way. By JIM MUSTIANASSOCIATED PRESSNEW YORK „ The man accused of sending pipe bombs to prominent critics of President Donald Trump was ordered held without bail after his “rst court appearance in New York on Tuesday. Cesar Sayoc, who was transferred from federal custody in Florida, hugged his lawyer after a hearing in which Assistant U.S. Attorney Jane Kim called him a serious risk of danger to the public and a ”ight risk.Ž Sayoc has been accused of sending improvised explosive devices to numerous Democrats, Trump critics and media outlets in a scare that heightened tensions before the crucial midterm elections Tuesday. None of the devices exploded, and no one was injured in the pipe bomb scare. He was arrested outside a South Florida auto parts store. He was living in a van covered with stickers of Trump and showing images of some of the presidents opponents with red crosshairs over their faces. Sayoc faces nearly 50 years in prison if convicted on “ve federal charges that were “led in New York because some of the devices were recovered there. Assistant Federal Defender Sarah Baumgartel declined to comment after the hearing, in which Sayoc presented himself as polite and soft-spoken and responded Yes, sirŽ to questions from the judge. He wore navy blue jail scrubs and a gray pony tail. At one point during the hearing, which lasted less than 10 minutes, Sayoc told U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert Lehrburger that he understood his rights 100 percent.Ž He appeared taken aback, however, when Lehrburger noted that Sayoc is charged with assaulting federal of“cials, among other counts. His lawyers decided not to seek his release on bail after prosecutors released a letter outlining more evidence against him, including DNA linking him to 10 of the explosive devices and “ngerprints on two of them.Bomb suspect appears at Election Day court hearing SAYOC HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE NATIONUS job openings dip but still exceed number of unemployedWASHINGTON (AP) „ The number of jobs posted by U.S. employers declined slightly in September but still exceeded the number of unemployed Americans and remained near a two-decade high. The report Tuesday from the Labor Department provided the latest evidence that many U.S. companies are straining to “ll jobs in the face of a robust job market with low unemployment. The department said job openings declined 4 percent to roughly 7 million, still close to the highest levels on records dating to December 2000. The number of openings far exceeded the roughly 6 million people who were unemployed in September.Police: 11-year-old boy leads officers on high-speed chaseBROOKLYN, Ohio (AP) „ Police say an 11-yearold boy in Ohio led of“cers on his second high-speed police chase in 13 months, this time after his mother took away a video game console. Police in suburban Cleveland say the boy took off in his mothers SUV around 10:30 p.m. Sunday after she went to bed. Police reports say of“cers began chasing the boy as he sped down a road the wrong way, running stop lights and reaching speeds of 70 to 90 mph. The chase ended about 30 minutes later when the boy crashed into a parked truck. He was treated for minor injuries and taken to a juvenile detention center. Authorities say he led police and the State Highway Patrol on a 100-mph chase last fall.

In a statement Billboards vice president of content Ross Scarano says Grande consistently stands up for herself and her decisions in a world that often isnt hospitable to that sort of strength in young women.ŽNATIONAL NEWS PORT CHARLOTTE 4265 Tamiami Tr., Unit E Port Charlotte, FL 33980 941-743-6644 VENICE 1180 Jacaranda Blvd. Venice, FL 34292 941-497-2273Come to our Annual Open House, see new products from ABC and receive a free gift! ~ while supplies last ~ MEDICAL DEPARTMENT STORE 4 LOCATIONSPlease call ahead if you need services € Walk ins are welcome! € Certi“ ed Fitters on StaffYoure InvitedTo Our Annual Post Mastectomy Fitting Eventadno=3627804-1Monday, November 26th through Friday November 30th Use Your Medicare Bene“ t Before Year EndSARASOTA 3672 Webber St. Sarasota, FL 34232 941-923-7556 FORT MYERS8595 College Pkwy., Ste 170Fort Myers, FL 33919 239-482-6111

Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Wednesday, November 7, 2018Look outside US for honest newsEditor: Nov. 2 front page, It was pretty electric.Ž Amid cries of Lock him up,Ž Trump rallies local supporters. It appears to me your writer must be a Democrat. It is this type of misleading press headline why Americans call the press crooked. You have to read two-thirds of the article to where the words Lock him upŽ are used when Ron DeSantis was talking about Gillum. I refuse to subscribe to liberal-slanted newspapers. If you want honest reporting, the U.S. news media is not the place to look.Raymond Benoit EnglewoodSocialism means living with lessEditor: I am a grandparent who had an epiphany today when reading a piece about how Bernie Sanders opened the door that empowered people to embrace socialism. My awaking was a sucker punch to the gut. This is my fault and that of many grandparents. Let me explain. As a child, I knew without a doubt that money didnt grow on trees and that anything but food and shelter was a luxury. Charity and sharing were part of our everyday life, but we knew it was limited by our income and would require sacri“ce. I knew that the only way to have food and shelter was to work hard. Things like dental braces, name-brand clothing, and college were not part of our necessities. I wanted better for my children. I wanted them to be free of “nancial worries in their youth. I wanted them to have an easier life. As a result, their children have no concept of how the bicycle, school pictures, extravagant birthday parties, baseball equipment, or annual vacation are paid for. They take them for granted. So the idea of socialism has no meaning to young people who have no understanding of the rewards of work, saving, sacri“cing and budgeting. How many would be sold on the notion if they knew that it would mean a lower standard of living for them? Even those of us who get it and who could deal with going without really dont want to anymore. It isnt glamorous. But much of this generation has no idea in the world how to live without frills, much less actual necessities. We have to do better.Carl Hastings EnglewoodSadly, no visitors on HalloweenEditor: Halloween is over. Im sure the kids had a good time. With all the places in town to take the kids it has put a damper on those of us who enjoy seeing all the kids dressed up and for us to hand out candy. No one came knocking at our door, yelling out Trick or TreatŽ for some of us. We miss those days of pleasure. What a sad time for us now.Mary Carmean Port CharlotteLincoln and Trump? No comparisonEditor: Lets call this one a readers plea for truth. The recent editorial in the Sun highlighting a letter to the editor appealing for more civil discourse did indeed strike a nerve. While I totally agree with the notion that we need to strive for greater civility, reading Lincolns words (of, for and by the people) paraphrased by a Trump supporter was distressing. Having just “nished two biographies of Lincoln in my search for perspective on our nations current dif“culties, it is dif“cult to understand how one be an admirer of both men. Lincoln staunchly advocated with malice toward none, with charity for all.Ž Lincoln believed the common working man was key to democracy, not the entitled upper class. Lincoln was a self-made and self-actualized man. Lincoln was a supremely humane, tolerant and truthful man, a man congenitally incapable of dishonesty,Ž as James L. Cotton Jr. writes in The Greatest Speech, Ever.Ž The comparison to the current occupant of The White House is stark and frightening. Perhaps some people believe that one can be a good president without being a good man, but I believe communicating truthfully is essential to both aspirations. Do I, as a reader, need to remind the professional journalists at the Sun of the importance to a democracy of a well-informed, a truthfully informed electorate? Civility is important, of course, but truth is vital and this president is neither civil nor truthful. Not a bit.Sheila Jaeger Punta GordaAnti-Semitism is still with usEditor: After the horri“c shooting at the Pittsburgh synagogue it becomes necessary to revisit the subject of anti-Semitism in America. After World War II America became the promise land of the free for the remaining Jews of the holocaust in Europe. My Jewish grandparents were killed by Hitler, but my father managed to survive. He was the only one out of a family of 13 who lived. He eventually emigrated to New York to live with an elderly, distant relative. He had nothing when he arrived but managed to prosper and raise a family in spite of home-grownŽ anti-Semitism. During his life in New York he met resistance when trying to join various clubs and institutions, saw signs on beaches saying no Jews or Blacks allowedŽ and faced hatred in his workplace. By the time my generation came along, the anti-Semitism had taken different quieter course. The hatred for Jews was still here, but under the surface.Ž Clubs, universities and organizations were now open to all religions. But, unfortunately, hatred was still alive and thriving. My neighbors and condominium association told me my Menorah was not welcome alongside their Christmas trees, my Star of David dis-allowed on my door next to the many crosses on doors. I have had my car vandalized and have been called mean, horrible names. Most neighbors call themselves Christians. If this is how Christians treat their neighbors, I am grateful to be a Jew. Sadly, anti-Semitism and hate never really went away.Jacqueline Coleman Punta GordaNeed to be taught critical thinkingEditor: As this election cycle neared completion the common cry was to get out and vote. I have a different take on the matter. With an educated electorate 100 percent voter turnout would be ideal. Sadly, we are nowhere close. Too many people are screaming vote red or vote blue instead of the best candidate. And then you have the Soundbite VotersŽ who base their opinions on the last soundbite they heard on TV. Dont believe me? Go anywhere there are people talking politics and I guarantee you someone will regurgitate a soundbite and state it as fact. We desperately need congressional term limits but asking Congress to end their own gravy train is wishful thinking. People complain about Congress while returning their own Congress person year after year after year. Personally, I think we need a mandatory course for high school seniors that teaches critical thinking. Opinions are not facts and political ads are seldom, if ever, truthful. Our children are our best hope for term limits through the ballot box and taking the power away from the Kochs and Soros and giving the power to the people. Educate the children.Bud Crihfield El JobeanLost our moral compassEditor: A recent paper has a long article about poverty in Charlotte and Sarasota counties. This is the proof that we have lost our moral compass. The poor are poor for two reasons. One, they are forced by their lack of education into poor paying jobs that shouldnt exist in the “rst place. Two, their greedy billionaire employers dont care and actively work to prevent solutions like better schools and better pay. They talk about how they would go out of business if they had to pay more, while avoiding any mention of their billions which properly shared would alleviate the misery they foster. They have us over a barrel and they know it, so it will require much sacri“ce on our part to force the situation, but, not taking those jobs until they pay proper wages, thereby cutting their pay dramatically. Yes, the strikeŽ they have worked so hard to get rid of is and always was the only answer. We have to cut their income stream off until they squeal and beg for mercy, the thing they have none of.Donald Steiner North PortVIEWPOINTPublisher „ Glen Nickerson Executive editor „ Jim Gouvellis Editorial page editor „ Stephen Baumann Commentary Editor „ John Hackworth Email letters to OUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITOR When someone points an AK-47 rifle at you, theres only one response. If youre armed, you shoot, hoping your shot hits home first. Thats what happened early Monday morning in a McDonalds parking lot in Charlotte Harbor when Charlotte County Sheriffs deputies faced off with an armed man. According to eyewitnesses and police reports, George Lyman Smith pulled into the restaurants lot, followed by a person who noticed him driving erratically and called 911. According to the 911 call tapes and the witness, Smith told the police to come getŽ him. And warned, they should come prepared. Tell them if they dont take me out, Ill take them out.Ž As it turned out, those words were an ominous warning of what was to come. According to Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Prummell and reporting by the Suns Anne Easker, as many as 10 deputies arrived on the scene and ordered Smith to put down a rifle he had snatched from his front car seat. Thats when all the training and practice kicked in for those law enforcement officers. No one turned cowboy. They first fired bean bag rounds at Smith. They hit him with the non-lethal ammunition, but it did not faze him. Then, when he raised his rifle and prepared to fire, a deputy shot him four times. Smith was transported to a local hospital but was likely dead already. Police shootings have been big news for the past few years. The public always has a question if shooting someone dead is the right thing to do. Why not wound them? Why shoot in the first place? In this case, one might question why four shots. Why not one or two? But when someone is aiming an AK-47 at you and the fellow officers you train with, know and respect, there is little time to think. You react. In this case, unless there are details the media is not privy to, the officers did what they were trained to do. They prevented a possible firefight that could have injured innocent people. We have had issues with Sheriff Prummell in the past. Even today we question why he refused Monday to release the names of officers involved, stating he did not want their names plastered all over the news.Ž That is a common policy for Prummell, who has failed to release the names of officers involved in deaths in the past. But, give credit where credit is due. Prummells officers are well-trained. They know policy. They know what to do in a life-threatening situation. We cannot imagine any law enforcement officers anywhere would have handled Mondays situation much differently. In fact, we doubt few would have dealt with the situation as well as Prummells officers. Its devastating anytime a person is killed, whether it is at the hands of an attacker or by law enforcement. Life is precious. The fallout can be calamitous to those directly involved and to family and friends who must deal with the loss. Lets be thankful for the welldrilled officers who derailed a confrontation that could have possibly resulted in multiple deaths Monday. They did their job and did it well.Charlotte deputies did their job HOW TO SUBMIT A LETTER TO THE EDITOR Letters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

The Sun | Wednesday, November 7, 2018 E/N/C Page 7VIEWPOINTStaff from the countys Community Development Department continue to assist Panhandle communities with Hurricane Michael recovery. Nine staff members from the Public Safety Department have rotated back home after their deployments right after the storm hit. They were replaced by staff currently performing housing and information duties. When their stint ends next week, another team will replace them. A third group of housing specialists will arrive in the Panhandle at the end of the month. As Charlotte County knows from its experience with Hurricane Charley, recovering from a storm is a lengthy process, even after power is restored and personal safety concerns abate. The need we are “lling right now is for personnel with expertise in housing and community outreach. While we dont identify deployed staff for safety reasons, I want to thank them for their willingness to leave home for weeks to serve their fellow Floridians under trying circumstances. The recovery is largely out of the headlines outside the Panhandle, but I can tell you schools have started to reopen this week, including in Mexico Beach, where devastation was widespread and aerial images of the storm surge damage went viral. Getting children back to school is a critical step toward normalcy for the youngsters and also allows parents more time to address their long todo lists during the school day. Power was completely restored in the Panhandle on Tuesday and the number of stores now open topped 400 across the 16 impacted counties, according to an update provided by the Florida Association of Counties. In the immediate aftermath of the storm, emergency responders distributed 11 million meals, about 3 million gallons of water and 3 million pounds of ice. I know many of you helped in your own way by donating supplies, volunteering for relief organizations or contributing money. There continue to be unmet needs and Gov. Rick Scott has activated the Florida Disaster Fund to collect money for storm victims. To donate, visit www. or text DISASTERŽ to 20222 to make a onetime donation of $10. If you want to donate your time and skills, register to volunteer at DayPlease join me in honoring Charlotte Countys more than 20,000 veterans. With Veterans Day falling on Sunday this year, the holiday will be observed on Monday. Visit www. and look under News & Alerts for the holiday status of county facilities and services. Charlotte County honors veterans throughout the year in a variety of ways. Visitors to county facilities may have noticed Purple Heart parking spaces reserved for combat wounded vets. The County Commission also approved a proclamation declaring Charlotte County a Purple Heart County in remembrance and recognition of medal recipients. Our Veteran Services Division puts those symbolic gestures into practice by helping eligible veterans and their dependents access bene“ts to which they are entitled. Certi“ed veteran services of“cers are available to help veterans and dependents navigate the application process for getting pension, disability, education, funeral, health care, job and survivor bene“ts. They can also help veterans apply for home loans and life insurance. To speak to a veteran services of“cer, call 941-764-5579 for the Port Charlotte of“ce or 941-681-3716 for the Englewood of“ce. The Veteran Services Division of“ces are located at 1050 Loveland Blvd., in Port Charlotte and 6868 San Casa Drive in Englewood.Splash pad openThe new splash pad at Ann & Chuck Dever Regional Park Pool opened on Saturday and was an immediate hit with park patrons, according to Community Services staff. The splash pad features a shallow wading pool with a small slide, downspouts, bubblers and other fun features. The splash pad was approved by voters in the 2014 1-percent local option sales tax.

The presentation recommends measures that can be undertaken to improve water quality, and these will be incorporated in next weeks report after council discussion. Pertinent data include: Nutrient pollution is a widespread problem in Florida, accounting for 73 percent of all impairments. Approximately 75 percent of assessed water bodies in Florida are impaired. Three major humangenerated sources of nutrient pollution are agricultural runoff, stormwater runoff and wastewater discharges/ failing septic systems. While nutrients dont cause red tide, they can be a contributing factor to more frequent, lengthy or severe blooms.Upcoming Events€ Sign up for Paddle Punta Gorda and experience a kayaking adventure on one of seven area waterways, guided by a local naturalist.

WORLD NEWSBy MARIA VERZA and AMY GUTHRIEASSOCIATED PRESSMEXICO CITY „ Humanitarian aid converged around a stadium in Mexico City where thousands of Central American migrants winding their way toward the United States were resting Tuesday after an arduous trek that has taken them through three countries in three weeks. Mexico City Mayor Jose Ramon Amieva said 4,500 migrants have arrived at the Jesus Martinez stadium since Sunday, and city of“cials were bracing to attend as many as 5,500 at the site by Wednesday. Hundreds of city employees and even more volunteers were on hand to sort donations and direct migrants toward food, water, diapers and other basics. Migrants searched through piles of donated clothes, grabbed boxes of milk for children and lined up to make quick calls home at a stand set up by the Red Cross as U.S. voters went to the polls for midterm elections in which President Donald Trump has made the migrant caravan a central issue. Employees from the capitals human rights commission registered new arrivals with biographical data „ such as age and country of origin „ and placed yellow bracelets on wrists to keep count. Rina Valenzuela wore one of the yellow bracelets as she sat attentively listening to aid workers from the nonpro“t Institute for Women in Migration explain the dif“culties of applying for and securing asylum in the U.S. Valenzuela, who is from El Salvador, decided shes better off applying for refuge in Mexico. Why go “ght there, with as much effort and as much suffering as we have gone through, just for them to turn me back? Well, no,Ž she said. The aid workers explained that the asylum process in the U.S. could take years, with no guarantee of approval. Honduran Antonio Perez listened to the warnings but said he remains determined to continue north. This is interesting but tough news,Ž he re”ected. But neither this nor Donald Trump is going to stop me.ŽAid arrives for migrants at Mexico City stadium as US votes AP PHOTOCentral American migrant Jerson Suazo, left, stands with his wife Anabel Pineda next to their six-year-old son Fernando, at a shelter in the Jesus Martinez stadium, in Mexico City, Monday.adno=3624790-1 BEST IN HEARING CARERicardo Gauthier, Au.D.Doctor of AudiologyBEST OF CHARLOTTE THE LAST 14 YEARS100 Madrid Blvd., Suite #214 Punta Gorda, FL 33950(941) AFFORDABLEDENTURES.COMMICHAEL D.

OUR TOWN: NEIGHBORS1B INSIDE: CLASSIFIEDSWednesday, November 7, 2018Pete Wallis has had a multi-faceted career. Known as Captain Pete, hes been a tugboat captain, a land/sea commercial pilot, a cruise director for Holland American, a Civil Air Patrol Commander and a professional ballroom dance teacher. Now, at 82 years of age, Pete is a model. Much to his delight, he has become a calendar pin-up. So has Craig Done. Craig was a radio announcer for a popular radio station and was also a minor league baseball player before he was drafted into the Coast Guard during the Korean War. Now, Craig is also a calendar model. His happy smile looks out from his calendar photo as he recaptures his radio announcing days. Both men are among those featured in a unique calendar highlighting the life and times of residents of Brookdale Rotonda Senior Living. Brenda Peckham, sales manager at Brookdale, served as coordinator of the calendar project after she got the idea from Ed Hill at the Englewood Chamber of Commerce. Ed did a similar project a few years ago. When I heard him talk about it I thought it would be perfect for our residents,Ž Brenda says. While she admits it took a lot of work and organizing to pull off the project, she says it was rewarding to see how excited the residents got when they became models. Some were absolutely giddy with excitement. In at least one case I saw a total change of demeanor. One gentleman who was very shy came out of his shell when he took part in the calendar project,Ž she said. She likes the fact that it also gave others a more comprehensive look at senior citizens. Some may look at seniors and just see old people. They dont think of the varied lives the seniors have led. The calendar emphasizes that point,Ž she adds. Some older folks may sometimes think, I used to be somebody.Ž The calendar photos combat that by telling the story of their successful careers. The calendar photos are eye-catching and compelling, thanks to the work of Heidemarie Burke at Photographic Images LLC. It took some work to transport the residents from here to each photo set-up. For the models it was all part of the fun,Ž says Brenda. Neil Paradis and Marcia Schaffer say they liked the chance to highlight their former roles as educators. Back in the day teaching was quite different in that we had to teach everything,Ž recalls Neil. Marcia had a stellar career as a science and biology teacher as well as a department head. Back then it wasnt all that common for a woman to be in the science “ eld. There were times when my male colleagues were challenging,Ž says Marcia. She was happy to end her career teaching at Vineland Elementary where, she says, she enjoyed every day. Being able to reminisce about days gone by has been rewarding,Ž comments Captain Pete. PHOTO COURTESY OF HEIDIMARIE BURKEAs he poses for the Brookdale calendar, Craig Done relives his career as an announcer for a radio station. PHOTO COURTESY OF HEIDIMARIE BURKECaptain Pete Wallis makes a compelling photo in the Brookdale calendar that brings to life the working lives of residents. SUN PHOTO BY PATTIE MIHALIK Brookdale residents Neal Paradis and Marcia Scha er display their photos that are part of a unique calendar. Brenda Peckham, sales manager, coordinated the project. PattieMIHALIKCBy BRIANNA KWASNIKSTAFF WRITERMore than 600 Port Charlotte High School students stayed home Monday following a students threat. The alleged threat was said to occur this week on either Monday or Thursday. A student was ultimately suspended from school for “ ve days until today, according to a report from the Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ ce. Calls were made to parents on Friday to make them aware of the situation. Despite authorities deeming the threat as not credible, 620 absences were reported Monday. The recent average for a Monday at PCHS is about 320 absences out of 1,700 students, according to school of“ cials. Both law enforcement and our school district leadership takes something like this very serious and acted as soon as they were informed to gather the facts about the situation,Ž said Charlotte County Public Schools spokesperson Mike Riley. According to the CCSO blog, after a thorough and comprehensive investigation, this threat was deemed to be not credible. The student who made these threats was interviewed and it was determined that he had no possible means to carry out these threats. There is no threat to any students or faculty and this investigation is closed,Ž the post read. According to the sheriffs report, a deputy was informed on Friday that school of“ cials were made aware of threats made on social media that a student, aged 15, was going to bring a gun to school. Of“ cials could not locate the origin of the threat at the time. On Oct. 31, the student had made a comment to a substitute teacher about owning a gun. According to the CCSO report, when the teacher advised the students to be safe on Halloween, the student in question responded, Ill be “ ne, I have a gun.Ž According to the report, the student allegedly indicated knowing someone who owned an AR-15, who was going to bring it to school. The student later told school of“ cials that wasnt true, and was just trying to be funny by saying it, but then quickly realized the comment was not funny. According to the CCSO report, deputies went to the students home, where a step-grandmother answered the door. She told deputies that there were no guns in the home. The students step-father was arrested on Oct. 30, and all guns were removed from the home and taken to a family friend that day, the stepgrandmother told authorities. Arrest records from the CCSO show the step-father was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. The stepgrandmother told deputies the student does not have access to any guns. Deputies said they had not received any new threats since the incident on Oct. 31. Still, parents took to social media to discuss whether they would send their children to school Monday. We perfectly understand parents concern for their childs safety,Ž said Riley. Riley said the schools two assigned school resource of“ cers were present on campus Monday. Some parents on social media said they plan to keep their kids home on Thursday as well. For example, Maura McClusky-Davis, wrote in a comment posted to the Suns Facebook page: Im scared for By LAUREN COFFEY STAFF WRITERNORTH PORT „ The results are in and a study shows North Port is continuing to please a majority of residents. The third annual citizen survey, conducted by the National Citizen Survey, was available over the summer to residents online and in mail. Safety and the economy topped residents key concerns, with both categories showing items that are well-received and others that need improvement. The 111 pages of results included 124 items, with 75 of those rated similarly in 2017, 43 of those getting an increase in favorability and six items decreasing in ratings. 26 percent of people who received a mailed copy returned it, which is 454 completed surveys. An additional 582 residents completed the survey online for 1,036 total completed surveys. The National Citizen Survey cost $18,590.SafetyResidents fell in the national average when 83 percent of respondents felt an overall feeling of safety in the city. That number was bumped up to 94 percent when it came to feeling safe in their neighborhood. When it comes to the agencies that respond to safety issues, 87 percent of people rated police as good/ excellent.Ž But Fire Rescue topped that by having a 98 percent positive rating. 78 percent of residents felt the city was doing a good job when it came to crime prevention and 85 percent felt the city was doing well with “ re prevention. For many residents, they do not see crime: 8 in 10 stated they had not reported a crime or been the victim of a crime.Economic DevelopmentThe economy, job creation and businesses remain the largest concern of residents. Only 48 percent of respondents rated economic development as good/excellentŽ and only one-third of respondents had positive ratings for the citys vibrant downtown/ commercial area.Ž However, 60 percent of residents said shopping opportunities were good in the city. And 98 percent of respondents had purchased goods in North Port.

A threat as this should pay the consequence of expelling. We cant be lenient on behavior that threatens someones life.Ž In another posted comment, Carrie Mitchell said: My daughter will be home Monday, and maybe for the week.Ž But not everyone feels the same way. Maria Anne Poirier had a conversation with her son, who is a junior at PCHS, before deciding to send him to school on Monday. Poirier said she will be sending her son to school on Thursday as well. Poirier said PCHS and CCSO made it clear that the threat was not credible. I cant keep him hidden forever. I cant control everything; just like I cant control my environment,Ž she said. We have to keep moving on even in the threat of danger.

Page 16 E/N/C The Sun | Wednesday, November 7, 2018CLASSIFIEDS / OUR TOWN For those into topiaries and formally pruned landscape features, a commonly available garden center plant may be of interest to you. The woody plant known as Eugenia, or more accurately, Syzygium paniculatum, is a smallleaved foliage plant often sculpted into fanciful shapes and designs. Once trimmed, this task must be kept up or the Eugenia will “ll back into a solid bush-like plant. Have you seen this plant before? Eugenia have small, less than two-inch, oval leaves that are ideal for clipping into spirals and pom-pom ball-like creations. New ”ushes of growth throughout the growing season start out reddish and then turn dark green as the leaves mature. Topiary-trained Eugenia are often planted in above-ground containers for display on decks or patios. Some Eugenia are also left natural and developed into hedges for a tight-knit screen „ I have seen at least one locally. Eugenia can be pruned into many shapes and kept in-bounds to most any size required. Unpruned, this shrub can grow up to twelve feet tall and wide. Best kept in hardiness zone 10, some reports list it as being able to do “ne in Zone 9B as well. As most Eugenia are kept in containers as accent plants, this better lends it to easy moving to a protected spot if a freeze is forecast. Highly drought-tolerant once established, Eugenia adapt well to either full sun or part shade conditions. Small white ”owers and reddish fruit can develop on Eugenia, although regular pruning may inadvertently remove these. The fruit is often eaten by birds and can be consumed by humans. There are a couple of disease issues to watch out for with your Eugenia. One is a branch dieback disease found in our area from time to time. This fungus infects the vascular tissue and causes unsightly branch dieback. Some evidence suggests that drought stress may trigger conditions favorable to this disease. Pruning the infected branch four inches below the diseased potion will help manage the dieback. Be careful however and keep in mind that dieback disease can be introduced by contaminated pruning shears. Sanitation with a 25 percent chlorine bleach solution, or a “fty percent rubbing alcohol solution will help reduce the chances of introducing this problem. A follow-up application of fungicide to the wounds may also be in order. Another disease problem that can occur is guava rust, a fungal disease that can infect Eugenia. The disease will manifest itself with powdery, yellow spore patches on leaves and buds during hot weather. Infected areas should be hand-pruned with follow-up fungicide application as per label directions. A sculpted Eugenia topiary is a real eyecatcher. To keep this attractive pattern, discipline and commitment will be needed to maintain the shape. Pruning such a plant can be fun and allows you to get involved in how the plant looks. Get fancy in your landscape with Eugenia!

By ADAM C. SMITHTAMPA BAY TIMESTALLAHASSEE „ Florida broke the hearts of Democrats once again Tuesday, as President Donald Trumps anointed gubernatorial candidate, Ron DeSantis, edged out presumed frontrunner Andrew Gillum. The photo “ nish delivered Floridas top of“ ce to the GOP for a sixth straight election, and is sure to leave Democrats shattered about how they could lose an election where they seemed to have so many advantages. Dozens of polls showed Gillum consistently holding a narrow lead over DeSantis, and state Democrats were optimistic that the presidents unpopularity, DeSantis close association with Trump and enthusiasm among Gillum supporters would end two decades of utter GOP dominance over state government. Democratic strength in urban areas fell barely shy of overcoming the overwhelming Republican strength most everywhere else. The result is that Republican not only will continue to control the governors of“ ce and Legislature, but Gov.-Elect DeSantis also will appoint three state Supreme Court justices and shift the court rightward for a generation. An Ivy League former Navy JAG, DeSantis, 40, was in many respects the status quo candidate, promising to keep Florida heading in the direction it is already going. The highest turnout midterm election Florida has seen in decades served as a referendum on Trump, who two years ago narrowly won Floridas 27 electoral votes. To a lesser extent, it also served as referendum on 20 years of one-party Republican rule. Florida validated both, even if it was a squeaker. And a nerve-wracking night. After polls in most of the state closed at 7 p.m., early returns showed Gillum and Democratic incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson slightly ahead. At DeSantis election night gathering at Orlandos Rosen Centre Hotel, about 200 people quietly and nervously sipped cocktails and looked at their phones in the dimly lit ballroom.

By BRIANNA KWASNIKSTAFF WRITERAfter two years of hard work and campaigning, the Charlotte County Yes! For Success amendment came to fruition. Yes! For Success, also referred to as the millage referendum, proposed homeowners pay an additional $1 for every $1,000 of property value. The plan will bring an additional $17 million to the district. Members of the School Board and supporters of the referendum were at the Historic Charlotte County Courthouse in downtown Punta Gorda to watch the results come in. With early voting and mail-in ballots counted, the referendum showed an early and wide lead. In the end, the community voted in favor of the referendum by over 10,000 votes. Im thrilled that the community saw the value and voted to support the referendum,Ž said Sue Sifrit, a former School Board member who spearheaded the referendum in Charlotte County. School Board Vice Chairman Lee Swift was also present at the courthouse to watch the results come in. He said he feels better about retirement, knowing the referendum has passed. Cara Reynolds won the election for his seat. I think it puts us on the road for a lot of good things,Ž he said. The district intends to tap a citizen oversight committee to monitor the spending of the referendum revenue, and report to taxpayers. When meeting with the public, the School Board told the public that dollars raised from the referendum would help provide competitive pay for staff.

Nelson was seeking a fourth term. Democrats needed a Nelson win to keep alive their hope of capturing a Senate majority. With 99 percent of the statewide vote counted, Scott was leading Nelson by about 57,000 votes. Scott had 50.36 percent of the state vote to Nelsons 49.64 percent.This was the most di cult Senate race Nelson had faced. Scott, a wealthy former hospital executive, poured $60 million of his own money into the race. It was a largely negative campaign, with Nelson criticizing Scott as an untrustworthy Trump supporter who has used the governors o ce to increase his wealth. His supporters also hit Scott for the states environmental problems, calling him Red Tide RickŽ for the deadly algae that has killed millions of “ sh o the Florida coasts.

The race for Rooneys seat has been dramatic, including three Republican candidates ganging up against each other in the primary, to the untimely death of Democrat candidate April Freeman. Though Freemans name was still on the ballot, Freemans votes went to newcomer Allen Ellison. With 206 of 234 precincts reporting Tuesday night, Steube received 62.1 percent of the vote, or 186,817 votes. Ellison received 37.9 percent of the vote, or 113,777 votes. From day one, this campaign has been about bringing real conservative reforms to Washington that will help hard-working Floridians across this district and across our great state,Ž Steube said Tuesday night. It is imperative that Congress “x our broken borders and immigration system, protect our economy, and ensure that the sacred rights we proudly enjoy as Americans are safeguarded at every step of the way.Ž During his editorial meeting with the Sun Steube said he wanted to be a part of committees focused on agriculture, since District 17 has more cattle than peopleŽ and is the top citrusproducing district. With his gun in his holster, Steube advocated for gun-free zones to protect citizens Second Amendment rights. Im proud of the campaign that weve run and the enthusiasm felt from all of the people around the district. It has truly been a humbling experience to learn about the issues that matter to so many,Ž Ellison said Tuesday night. Whether in Congress or in the private sector, there is much work that we can do together.Ž What people should focus on is the results Republicans have had in the recent years in Florida,Ž Steube said. When working with Democrats, Steube said he would compromise on some issues, if there are any he agrees with. But everything the Democrats are putting out arent things Im going to support,Ž he told the Sun Thursday, citing Nancy Pelosi as a major hurdle for the GOP. My focus would be to try to get candidates back in the seats we lost,Ž he said. While campaigning, Ellison was skeptical of Steubes overwhelming support of Trump. You are representative of the people of your district, the people of this country. You should never go into Congress with the sole aim to represent the President.Ž I could not be more eager to get started and help President Trump continue to Make America Great Again! God Bless you, your families, and our great country,Ž Steube said Tuesday night. As for 2020, Ellison plans to run again for the seat. A 2020 run has always been the goal,Ž he said. With a full ”edge campaign, adequate time and resources, we know that we can chart a path to victory.ŽEmail: Lhardaway@sun-herald.comBy BRIANNA KWASNIKSTAFF WRITERAfter almost a year of campaigning, Cara Reynolds will take Lee Swifts position on the Charlotte County School Board for District 1. Reynolds, who announced her candidacy in January, was at Leroys Southern Kitchen & Bar in downtown Punta Gorda Tuesday night watching the results come in, surrounded by family and supporters. Reynolds, who has three children in Charlotte County Public Schools, formerly taught in Charlotte County schools for seven years. She advocated for transparency in the School Board, and making meetings more accessible to the public. She also ran on the premise of pushing for better mental health training for staff, expanding vocational training, improving treatment of teachers, and using teachercreated baseline tests administered early in the year, and one end-of-year test, rather than statewide testing. Swift, who is retiring from the board after 24 years, and who also is Reynolds neighbor, said she worked hard to get the position. Reynolds and her family were out campaigning throughout early voting and on election day at various polling locations. In response to her victory, Reynolds sentiment was short: Its fantastic. Im thrilled and ready to get to work.Ž Superintendent Steve Dionisio and chairman Ian Vincent stopped by Leroys to congratulate Reynolds on her victory. ŽIm looking forward to working with Cara,Ž said Vincent. I got to know all three candidates, I felt like I wouldve been able to work with any of them. I dont know that much about Cara, but I know her hearts in the right place and like all of our current School Board members, know that shes going to make decisions in students best interest.Ž Reynolds won the seat with 56 percent of the vote, just shy of 10,000 votes over her opponent, Cathy Janiak. Janiak was across town watching the results come in at Buffalo Wings & Rings in Port Charlotte. I spoke with Cara and gave her my congratulations. I wish her all the best as she begins her tenure on the board,Ž Janiak said.By DANIEL SUTPHINSTAFF WRITERA Heartland native, Florida Rep. Ben Albritton (R-Wauchula) pulled away early to win the State Senate District 26 seat in Tuesdays General Election against political newcomer Catherine Price (D-Lake Wales). At the time of this report, Albritton received 116,983 votes where Price had only received 62,687 in the district, which encompasses all of Hardee, DeSoto, Highlands, Glades and Okeechobee counties, as well as parts of Polk, Charlotte and Lee counties. Charlotte, Hardee and Highlands counties were still tallying their results. It is a huge task to be a State Senator,Ž said Albritton. Its a huge blessing that our constituents turned out and chose us.Ž 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. Campaign fundraising was an early sign of the mountain Price had to climb. In the end, Albritton raised just over $340,000 for his campaign, whereas Price raised just under $49,000, according to the most recent reports from Floridas Division of Elections. While Albritton believes fundraising helped his campaign in reaching the districts constituents, his partys message played just as much a part of the win. I believe that our message about being deeply interested in every corner of the district and spending time talking to voters has shown our constituents that we care,Ž said Albritton. Thats not going to change when we walk through the door in Tallahassee. It was important to them and it is important to me.Ž Price, a nurse and public health administrator, promoted better health care and improved access to affordable care in the state. There is a lot that needs to be done in Florida,Ž said Price. I think that I did the best that I could. I think that we traveled extensively (but) its a very conservative area.

Deutsch easily beat Joan V. Fischer in Tuesdays election. Deutsch pulled in 61 percent or 52,038 votes to Fischers 38 percent, 32,722 votes. Fischer was the “rst Democrat to run for the County Commission in at least 10 years. Hes done a good job,Ž said voter and former Punta Gorda City Council member Kim Devine. I worked with him for four years. Hes steady, and we have a lot of changes coming, a lot of big things with Sunseeker (the planned resort in Charlotte Harbor). Hes knowledgeable. To have someone who doesnt know the job could be detrimental.Ž I stuck to the issues,Ž Deutsch told the Sun I ran on my record.Ž There was no love lost between the two candidates. Neither expects to run again. Deutsch is 78 and Fischer, 85. Deutsch saw many of his campaign signs removed, and felt that Fischer should have known about that. Fischer said her signs were removed too, by county staff enforcing sign rules. Asked if she would congratulate Deutsch, Fischer said with a smile, If I see him.Ž Fischer had accused the commission of failing to be transparent in its deliberations and decision-making „ an accusation that frustrated Deutsch. If were in an elevator, we dont even talk,Ž he said of the commission members. The last Democrat to sit on the commission was Sarah Devos, elected in 2004. After that, Democrats that became commissioners had switched parties before running. Fischer said she is glad she ran. It was important that I ran this time. That will encourage Democrats to run (in Charlotte County),Ž she told the Sun It has motivated the Democratic party to participate, to know that they are not alone. So many people think they are the only Democrat here.Ž One group that voted for Fischer was those angry with the commission for removing septic systems, and forcing those residents to pay for sewer connections. Fischer campaigned on getting the county to pay for the connection, and gained some voters that way. I heard from a young woman who is a DeSantis and Scott (Republican) voter. She was going to vote for Fischer,Ž said local Democrat Marie Coscia. She said she feels that commissioners are into the sewer projects for the money end of it ƒ Joans looking to curb some of that.Ž Deutsch also aggravated some by refusing to blame the algae problem with red tide on human pollution, as scientists have not been able to show that. He doesnt pander,Ž Devine said of his refusal to fan the ”ames of blame about red tide. Bob Peterson of Port Charlotte is a staunch Republican, and he voted for Deutsch even though Deutsch is a moderate New England-style Republican. Hes a very friendly guy. I dont know how Republican he is. ƒ Hes a very personable guy.Ž Fischers supporters were very attached. I found Joan and I like her. Why would I keep looking?Ž said Democrat Victor Coscia. Men have been in politics for 6,000 years and we made a mess of it. Shes a genuinely good person.Ž In the coming four years, Deutsch said he wants to “nish the William R. Gaines Jr. Veterans Memorial Park, and keep moving on the Blue Waters initiatives including septic-to-sewer. Id like to see us move forward with a methodical plan to sewer Charlotte County. We must protect our waterways,Ž he said. James W. Herston, chairman of the Charlotte Harbor Redevelopment Agency Advisory Committee, praised Deutsch. I think itll be a great ending for a great mans career,Ž Herston said. I think hes well-deserving of a victory.ŽEmail: Albritton beats PriceFlorida Rep.

Maio received 108,400 votes or 53.89 percent to Beggs 92,738 votes or 46.11 percent. Attempts to reach Maio on his victory were unsuccessful. We ran a good race,Ž Beggs said. Im so proud of how far weve come, and Im so thankful for the many people who believed in me.Ž As the results of early voting were posted, Maio posted only a narrow lead over Beggs.

Ziegler had received Caragiulos endorsement for the seat last December when the incumbent announced that he would not seek another term. Attempts to reach Ziegler were unsuccessful. In an ironic twist, the campaigns run by all four candidates in this years election will be the last countywide races for the County Commission. By an overwhelming majority Tuesday, county voters approved a change to the Sarasota County Charter for so-called single-member districts, meaning a candidate for the commission will be elected only by the voters in his or her speci“c district. Ziegler, husband of Sarasota County Schools Board Chair Bridgette Ziegler, will be sworn in for his “rst term later this month.Email: EMRICH LUKE MAIO ZIEGLERBy SCOTT LAWSONNORTH PORT EDITORSARASOTA „ Sarasota County residents voted overwhelmingly to change the county charter so commissioners will no longer be voted for by the entire county electorate. The charter amendment was pushed by Sarasota Alliance for Fair Elections who gathered more than 15,000 signatures to get the question on the ballot. It was about 60-40 percent in favor of the single-district view, with 114,538 for while 76,707 were against the change. Currently, commissioners represent a speci“c district they live in, they are elected at large by all county residents. Single-member districts were abolished by county voters in 1994 in favor of the current system. A representative with Sarasota Alliance for Fair Elections was unavailable for comment by deadline Tuesday night. In North Port, city voters approved a charter amendment that replaces the current City Charter with one that, of“cials say, offers clarity to the document. There have been 16 amendments to the charter since its inception,Ž North Port City Commissioner Debbie McDowell recently wrote in a column. Some amendments were simple and some were complex.

The Sun | Wednesday, November 7, 2018 E/N/C Page 5 SARASOTA/DESOTO COUNTIES 2018 ARCADIA/DESOTO STATE SENATE DISTRICT 23 STATE HOUSE DISTRICT 74 By WARREN RICHARDSONSUN CORRESPONDENTSARASOTA „ Supporters of the Legacy Trail were in a cheering mode Tuesday night as Sarasota County voters approved a referendum allowing for the expansion of the popular trail. With all Sarasota County precincts reporting Tuesday night, 137,853 voters, or 70.58 percent, cast ballots in favor of the measure compared to 57,470 votes or 29.42 percent opposed. The question on Tuesdays ballot asked 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, and construct the entire 9-mile extension. The referendum was necessary since the purchase price exceeded the $22.6 million limitation in the countys charter on the countys borrowing power without voter approval. We are just thrilled,Ž said Andrea Seager, co-chair of the group Vote Yes for the Sarasota County Legacy Trail Extension. Were extremely grateful to the county commission for the opportunity to ask the residents of Sarasota County if they wanted the Legacy Trail extended. Its been a long, long haul and were just really, really thrilled with the results.Ž Earlier, Seager indicated supporters had talked to a multitude of county voters about the referendum and received few negative comments about it. With the passage of the referendum, county of“cials will now prepare for a closing on the remaining 6 miles of abandoned corridor. That closing is scheduled to take place in May, contingent upon passage of the referendum. According to county of“cials, the borrowing of the $65 million will occur through the issuance of two bond series. The “rst series of bonds will be issued in 2019 in the amount of $35 million. That will cover the acquisition costs of the next segment at $30.1 million and design and engineering work. The latter will include work on connections to the trail in Venice and North Port. The second series of bonds will be issued in 2020 in the amount of $30 million which will be used to construct the extension of the trail. According to estimates by the countys budget staff, approval of the referendum will result in a property tax increase of $16 on a home with a taxable value of $200,000.Email: jondaltonwr@gmail.comBy CRAIG GARRETTARCADIAN EDITORTuesdays election held few surprises for DeSoto County. But one man did astonish even his close supporters. Former Arcadia councilman Lorenzo Dixon finished second in a four-person race for three open council seats. The citys mayor, Judy Wertz-Strickland, cruised to re-election with about 50 more votes than Dixon. In an unofficial tally, Councilman Keith Keene finished a single tick behind Dixon with 872 votes. Civic-minded Jackie Tucker was outside the circle with 771 unofficial votes. Roughly 53 percent of DeSotos 16,735 registered voters turned out on Tuesday, a sizable number of those in early results choosing state Republicans over Democratic rivals. I will try to do my best to not disappoint,Ž Dixon told a supporter following a fairly quick one-hour tally after DeSotos 15 polling stations closed at 7 p.m. The DeSoto Board of County Commissioners has one new face and a veteran returning to his seat at the Nov. 27 swearing-in ceremonies. Republican J.C. Deriso dispatched Democrat Mark Anderson with about 58 percent of the votes, while incumbent Democrat Elton Langford carried the evening with nearly 75 percent of the vote over No Party Af“liation candidate Brian Cho Chung Hing, a newcomer in DeSoto politics. Deriso replaces long-serving Commissioner James Selph, who retires from public service after 48 years. Deriso ran an unusual campaign „ no social media. It was old-fashioned shaking hands and listening to concerns,Ž he said. And I credit Mark (Anderson) with running a clean campaign. I cant say enough about that.Ž Langford gained some added prominence in July in opposing phosphate giant Mosaic Fertilizer in its bid to mine in DeSoto County. That issue comes before a third-party mediator in the near future, however. I am humbled by DeSoto County taking care of me, right to the end,Ž Langford said.By STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERRepublican Joe Gruters will serve as the District 23 state senator in Tallahassee, defeating Democrat Faith Olivia Babis. Gruters wound up with a commanding lead in both in Sarasota and Charlotte counties. I am incredibly grateful to serve the community I love,Ž Gruters said. He promises he will “ght every dayŽ in Tallahassee to represent his constituents in Sarasota and Charlotte counties. Gruters won with 56.48 percentage of the vote with 142,752 votes to Babis 110,003. Among Gruters accomplishments, he served as Florida House of Representatives District 73 representative for Sarasota and Manatee counties. He has been the chairman of the Republican Party of Sarasota County since 2007, and served as cochair of President Trumps Florida campaign. Nominated by President Trump to serve on the Amtrak board of directors, Gruters is currently awaiting U.S. Senate con“rmation, his campaign website states. Serving as a state senator and on the Amtrak board isnt mutually exclusive, he said. Gruters told the Sun editors he believed 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 fixing the algae problems involving Lake Okeechobee. I knew I was in for a tough battle,Ž said Babis. She feels she ran a good, competitive race. Babis works as peer mentor at the Suncoast Center for Independent Living and serves on the Citizens with Disabilities Advisory Board for the City of Sarasota. She believes she brought to light many of the issues the disabled face. Among the issues, she campaigned for expanded Medicaid coverage and social services. In Sarasota County, with all of its precincts counted, Gruters received 112,528 votes, 55.28 percent of the ballots cast, while Babis saw 91,021 votes, 44.72 percent of the ballots cast. With 36 of Charlotte Countys 36 precincts within District 23 counted, Gruters received 29,379 votes, 61.49 percent of the ballots cast.

Buchanan, the son of U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, recently moved to the south part of Sarasota County to ensure he lived in the district. He handily defeated South Venice attorney Tony Mowry in the State House race. Buchanan works in real estate and calls himself an entrepreneur. He bested North Port Vice Mayor Linda Yates in an August primary. We worked very hard; left it all out on the “eld and I am overwhelmed with the support we received,Ž Buchanan said. He said a grassroots effort assisted with the win. Weve knocked on tens of thousands of doors with people on one-onone settings. Weve run a very positive campaign and I think people responded to that.Ž Buchanan won with a “nal total of 51,166 over Mowrys 36,469, a 51-40 percentage win with a third candidate picking up the rest of the votes. In the State House, he said his goal is to make sure we keep Floridas economy on the right track ... and weve got a lot of local issues to concentrate on.Ž Buchanan said hed like to get improvements to River Road expedited and push on red tide research to help “ght the slog that polluted Gulf Coast waters much of the last year. He credited Mowry with running a positive campaign as well. Mowry is a Venice attorney specializing in elder law. He is an alum of Venice High School who attended North Central College and Temple Law School. He is currently a major in the U.S. Air Force Reserves. Obviously we knew the numbers were tough in this district,Ž Mowry said when learning of the results. (President Donald) Trump won by 23 „ but we gave it our best shot.

Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Wednesday, November 7, 2018 TALLAHASSE (AP) „ Republican state Rep. Matt Caldwell was leading Democratic lobbyist and lawyer Nikki Fried in the race to replace departing Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam. Caldwell is a real estate appraiser and seventh generation Floridian who served as chairman of the House Government Accountability Committee. He served eight years in the House. Fried based a large part of her campaign advocating for the medical marijuana industry and criticizing the states implementation of a constitutional amendment approved by voters allowing its use. Fried would be the first woman elected as Florida agriculture commissioner. MIDTERM ELECTION 2018 CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER AGRICULTURE COMMISSIONERSTATE AMENDMENTS ATTORNEY GENERAL TALLAHASSE (AP) „ Republican Chief Financial Of“cer Jimmy Patronis was leading former Democratic Sen. Jeremy Ring as he tries to keep the of“ce he was appointed to when Jeff Atwater resigned last year. Patronis served eight years in the state House and was a member of the board that regulates the states utilities when Scott appointed him the states top “nance of“cial in June 2017. Ring is a former Yahoo executive from Broward County. He served in the state Senate from 2006 to 2016.By TERRY SPENCERASSOCIATED PRESSBALLOT QUESTIONSFlorida voters passed bans on greyhound racing, offshore oil drilling, using electronic cigarettes in most businesses and made it more dif“cult for casino gambling to expand and taxes to be increased. The 12 constitutional amendments required 60 percent to pass and all but Amendment 1 passed. They number 1-7 and 9-13 after the state Supreme Court removed Amendment 8 from the ballot. Amendment 13 banned dog racing in Florida by 2021. Thats a blow to the industry thats been dwindling over the past two decades. Only “ve other states have active dog racing. Since Amendment 4 passes, it could have a long-lasting impact on the states politics as most felons who complete their sentences will now have their voting rights automatically restored. It does not apply to murderers and rapists. More than 1.5 million ex-felons couldnt vote in Florida, and critics of the states felon voting ban say it disproportionally affects minority voters who tend to support Democrats. Here are the remaining ballot questions: „ Amendment 1 was the only measure that failed. It would have increased the states property tax homestead exemption from $50,000 to as much as $75,000 on homes worth more than $100,000. It was just below the 60 percent threshold. „ Amendment 2 passed. It will permanently keep in place a 10 percent cap on property tax assessments for commercial and rental properties that is current law, but is set to expire next year. „ Amendment 3 easily passed. It will require statewide voter approval to expand casino gambling in Florida, taking control out of the hands of the Legislature. „ Amendment 5 passed. It will require a two-thirds majority vote before the Legislature could increase taxes or fees. „ Amendment 6 passed, providing additional rights to crime victims and would raise the mandatory retirement age for judges from 70 to 75. „ Amendment 7 passed. It will require a supermajority vote before state university boards of trustees can raise fees. It will also pay death bene“ts, including help with education expenses, to the survivors of “rst responders who die on the job. „ Amendment 9 passed. It prohibits oil drilling in state waters and ban vaping in work places where smoking is already prohibited. „ Amendment 10 passed. It will require the state to create an Of“ce of Domestic Security and Counter-Terrorism and maintain a Department of Veterans Affairs, which already exists. It also sets the start of the annual legislative session to January instead of March in even-numbered years and requires counties to elect a sheriff, tax collector, property appraiser, elections supervisor and circuit court clerk. „ Amendment 11 easily passed. It allows the Legislature to make some changes to criminal laws retroactive. It would also repeal language in the constitution thats now considered obsolete. „ Amendment 12 passed. It bans elected of“cials, agency heads, judges and others from paid lobbying while serving and for six years after leaving of“ce instead of the current two. TALLAHASSE (AP) „ Republican Ashley Moody defeated Democratic state Rep. Sean Shaw, keeping the states top law enforcement position in Republican hands. Moody is a former judge and federal prosecutor from the Tampa area who has criticized Shaws lack of experience in the courtroom. Shaw would be Floridas “rst black attorney general. He is the son of the late state Supreme Court Justice Leander Shaw. He campaigned as a consumer advocate and called for new gun restrictions. Moody will replace Pam Bondi, who could not seek re-election because of term limits. Democrats last won the attorney generals race in 1998. MOODY PATRONIS CALDWELL Patronis elected chief financial officerAgriculture Commissioner: Caldwell defeats Fried Moody defeats Shaw for Attorney General By STEVE PEOPLESASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ Democrats were gaining signi“cant ground in the battle for House control Tuesday night, while Republicans held onto their majority in the Senate as voters weighed in on the “rst nationwide election in Donald Trumps turbulent presidency. With control of Congress, statehouses and the presidents agenda at stake, some of the nations top elections were too close to call. Democrats won half the seats they needed to claim House control with dozens additional competitive contests remaining. Victories in contested races across Florida, New York, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Minnesota gave them cause for optimism. The Democrats narrow path to the Senate was slammed shut after setbacks in Indiana, Tennessee, North Dakota and Texas. Trumps team immediately sought to give him credit for retaining their narrow Senate majority, even as their foothold in the more competitive House battle“eld appeared to be slipping. Its a huge moment and victory for the president,Ž Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters at the White House Tuesday night. Two issues more than any others were on voters minds. 25 percent described health care and immigration as the most important issues in the election, according to AP VoteCast, a national survey of the electorate. Nearly two-thirds said Trump was a reason for their vote. Democrats, whose very relevance in the Trump era depended on winning at least one chamber of Congress, were laser-focused on health care as they predicted victories that would break up the GOPs monopoly in Washington and state governments. The political and practical stakes were sky-high. Democrats could derail Trumps legislative agenda for the next two years should they win control of the House. And they would claim subpoena power to investigate Trumps personal and professional shortcomings. Some Democrats have already vowed to force the release of his tax returns. Others have pledged to pursue impeachment, although removal from of“ce is unlikely so long as the GOP controls the Senate or even maintains a healthy minority. Yet Trumps party will maintain Senate control for the next two years, at least. In Texas, Sen Ted Cruz staved off a tough challenge from Democrat Beto ORourke, whose record-smashing fundraising and celebrity have set off buzz he could be a credible 2020 White House contender. In the leadup to the election, Republicans privately expressed con“dence in their narrow Senate majority but feared the House could slip away. The GOPs grip on high-pro“le governorships in Florida, Georgia and Wisconsin were at risk as well. Long lines and malfunctioning machines marred the “rst hours of voting in some precincts, including in Georgia, where some voters reported waiting up to three hours to vote in a hotly contested gubernatorial election. More than 40 million Americans had already voted, either by mail or in person, breaking early voting records across 37 states, according to an AP analysis. Nearly 40 percent of voters cast their ballots to express opposition to the president, according to AP VoteCast, the national survey of the electorate, while one-in-four said they voted to express support for Trump. Overall, 6 in 10 voters said the country was headed in the wrong direction, but roughly that same number described the national economy as excellent or good. The presidents current job approval, set at 40 percent by Gallup, was the lowest at this point of any “rst-term president in the modern era. Both Barack Obamas and Bill Clintons numbers were 5 points higher, and both suffered major midterm losses of 63 and 54 House seats respectively. Democrats needed to pick up two dozen seats to seize the House majority and two seats to control the Senate. Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin in West Virginia and Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin won re-election. And in New Jersey, Democrats re-elected embattled Sen. Bob Menendez, who, less than a year ago, stood trial for federal corruption charges. The Justice Department dropped the charges after his trial ended in an hung jury. Democrats performance in the House battle“eld was mixed. In Virginia, political newcomer Jennifer Wexton defeated two-term GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock. The Republican incumbent had been branded Barbara TrumpstockŽ by Democrats in a race that pointed to Trumps unpopularity among college-educated women in the suburbs. In south Florida, former Health and Human Services Secretary Donna Shalala defeated Republican Maria Elvira Salazar. Democrats failed to defeat a vulnerable incumbent in Kentucky, where Republican Rep. Andy Barr won over former Marine “ghter pilot Amy McGrath. All 435 seats in the U.S. House were up for re-election, although fewer than 90 were considered competitive. Some 35 Senate seats were in play, as were almost 40 governorships and the balance of power in virtually every state legislature. Meanwhile, several 2020 presidential prospects easily won re-election, including Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Tuesdays elections also tested the strength of a Trump-era political realignment de“ned by evolving divisions among voters by race, gender, and especially education. Democrats were most optimistic about the House, a sprawling battle“eld set largely in Americas suburbs where more educated and af”uent voters in both parties have soured on Trumps turbulent presidency, despite the strength of the national economy. Democrats faced a far more dif“cult challenge in the Senate, where they were almost exclusively on defense in rural states where Trump remains popular. Democratic Senate incumbents were up for re-election, for example, in North Dakota, Indiana, and Missouri „ states Trump carried by almost 25 percentage points on average two years ago. History was working against the president in the Senate: 2002 was the only midterm election in the past three decades when the party holding the White House gained Senate seats.Dems gain in quest for House control but GOP retains Senate Voters wait in line in the gymnasium at Brunswick Junior High School to receive their ballots for the mid-term election, Tuesday, in Brunswick, Maine.

Because of term limits, he will not be allowed to run again. The old joke is that you spend three terms practicing and then in your last term you get to run some things,Ž Pigman, R-Avon Park, said Tuesday after district-wide results were published. His challenger, Democrat Audrey Asciutto, said she was disappointed with the election results, of course, but overall she thought the midterm elections gave a great showing for Democrats in the area. Next for me is to kind of keep moving forward,Ž said Asciutto, who works in real estate. Im going to keep selling houses and keep active in the community.Ž Of the 55,877 votes cast in District 55, Pigman received 36,848, or 65.94 percent, and Asciutto received 19,029, or 34.06 percent. Locally, the PigmanAsciutto race was a little more of a 2-1 ratio. Out of 39,106 local votes cast for District 55, Pigman took 25,181 votes, or 64.39 percent. Asciutto took 13,925 votes, or 35.61 percent. Overvotes were at 3, while the undervotes totaled 1,019. Pigman also took the majority of votes in Glades and Okeechobee counties, as well as the portion of St. Lucie County that is in the district. Meanwhile, Ben Albritton, R-Wauchula, has claimed the state seat vacated by former Republican Sen. Denise Grimsley of Zolfo Springs. Albritton gained 117,719 votes in District 26 „ 65.1 percent of the ballots „ over 63,100 votes, or 34.9 percent, cast for Catherine Price, D-Lake Wales. Total votes cast were 180,819. In the District 26 Florida Senate race, Highlands County voters mirrored the 2-1 ratio. Out of 39,161 votes cast in the Florida Senate race, 26,302, or 67.16 percent, voted for Albritton while 12,859, or 32.84 percent, chose Price. One overvote was tallied, along with 966 undervotes. For his part, Pigman complimented Asciutto for running a very policy-oriented campaign,Ž which he said he also did. She presented her positions well,Ž Pigman said. We can feel passionate about issues.Ž One of those issues was health care, which Asciutto argued from a patient side and in which Pigman works as an emergency room physician. He said hes looked at health care in a non-partisan fashion, and that would be one issue he would address when he returns to Tallahassee. I will look at how we can provide more care to more people,Ž Pigman said. Asciutto said she plans to stay active in advocating for greater health care coverage for all people. She believes that many have gotten the message about the need, but perhaps many more did not during her campaign. Maybe the last “ve to six months was not enough time,Ž Asciutto said. Pigman also said he has a couple of water projects in the district he wants to see completed; the Spring Lake Improvement District request for water and sewer infrastructure along U.S. 98 being one of them. Pigman said he has seen water projects completed in the districts other counties: Glades and Okeechobee counties. Highlands County is deserving,Ž he said.

The “nal tally, as of press time on Tuesday night, was Steube with 66.09 percent or 25,885 of the votes to Ellisons 33.91 percent or 13,280 votes. The total number of votes calculated by the Highlands County Supervisor of Elections website showed a total of 39,165 votes. According to ”oridaelectionwatch. gov, in the district Stuebe earned 192,704 votes, or 62.26 percent. Ellison received 116,812 votes, or 37.745 percent. The total votes cast in this race was 309,516 as of press time. There was a total of 39,165 votes cast, with 3 overvotes and 960 undervotes. Steube is from Sarasota and will be representing Floridas 17th Congressional District, which covers several counties, in total or in part, including Highlands, Charlotte, Glades, Hardee, Hillsborough, Lee, Manatee, Okeechobee and Polk. The seat became available after incumbent Republican Thomas Rooney decided to retire. Steubes victory was not a surprise as he ran in a predominantly Republican district. In Highlands County alone, the registered voters are divided as follows: Democrats with 18,037 registered voters; Republicans with 27,461 and othersŽ at 13,774. This is according to the Highlands County Supervisor of Elections as of Oct. 9. Steubes platform was one of conservative values and included second amendment rights, immigration policies that include building the wallŽ to fruition, and having a pro-life stance. Ellison was “ghting an uphill battle as he took up his candidacy after the unexpected death of fellow Democrat, candidate April Freeman on Sept. 23. The Florida Democratic Party decided Ellison would be its best hope to win the congressional seat. Ellison did not have much in the way of campaign funds, while Steube had well over $100,000. Ellison also ran a race in which his name was not even on the ballot as the General Election ballots had been approved and printed before Freemans sudden death. The ballots would be used and voters were informed by the Supervisor of Elections that a vote for Freeman would count as a vote for Ellison. Ellison was born in Avon Park and is the CEO and founder of Center for Economic & Policy Development.

However, Democrat Andrew Gillum conceded the race to former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis shortly after 11 p.m. Results showed DeSantis, Republican, with a tiny lead over Gillum: 4,015,047 votes (49.87 percent) versus 3,937,929 votes (48.91 percent) „ a difference of 76,118 votes, or just less than 1 percent. That statewide difference was only twice as much as the number of votes cast in Highlands County this election by mail, early votes and on Election Day. Meanwhile, the Highlands County Supervisor of Elections Of“ce reported a 67.7 percent turnout „ 40,128 ballots cast out of 59,272 active registered voters. Of those, 11,695 had come in by mail, 12,640 by early voting and 15,793 on Election Day. Highlands County Supervisor of Elections Penny Ogg did not know if that turnout was the biggest midterm turnout the county had seen, but was impressed. For midterms, thats a big one. We had 76 percent turnout for a presidential so 67.7 percent is big,Ž Ogg said. Its an exciting day.Ž Of Highlands County voters, 39,762 voted in the governors race. Of those, 26,262, or 66.05 percent, voted for DeSantis and 12,761 or 32.09 percent, voted for Gillum. In other state races: Florida Attorney General candidate Ashley Moody, Republican, carried 4,168,940 votes statewide, or 52.41 percent, over Democrat Sean Shaw, who got 3,643,815, or 45.81 percent. Jeffrey Marc Siskind, a non-party candidate, took 141,773 votes, or 1.78 percent. Locally, she won the race by a large margin: A 2-1 ratio of 27,204 votes (68.92 percent) to 11,568 votes (29.31 percent). Again, Siskind took 1.77 percent, this time with 699 votes. Jimmy Patronis took the contest for Florida Chief Financial Of“cer over Jeremy Ring. Patronis had 4,089,274 votes, or 52.03 percent, while Ring had 3,769,786 votes, or 47.97 percent. In Highlands County, Patronis showed an easy win, a greater than 2-1 ratio of 26,511 votes (67.8 percent) over Rings 12,544 votes (32.08 percent). Another 49 votes „ 0.13 percent „ went locally to write-in candidates. Florida Commissioner of Agriculture candidate Matt Caldwell, Republican, carried 3,965,363 votes, or 50.25 percent, over Democratic candidate Nicole NikkiŽ Fried, who received 3,926,060, or 49.75 percent. Its a difference of 49,475 „ 0.6 percent. Locally, Caldwell won the race cleanly, in another 2-1 margin: 25,987 votes (66.04 percent) to 13,364 votes (33.96 percent). In Highlands County, the majority of voters chose Republicans for every other state and federal of“ce, voted to retain all judges and voted in favor of every balloted Florida Constitutional amendment.

The Sun | Wednesday, November 7, 2018 E/N/C Page 9 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Yesterdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: Is there any evidence that taking turmeric prevents cancer? I have a friend who is convinced that it does. „ M.S. ANSWER: There are hundreds of cancers, some of which we can treat and a few of which we can prevent. Turmeric cannot, unfortunately, prevent all cancers. There are reasons to think that turmeric may have benets. Some studies have suggested benet in certain types of cancers, including leukemias and colon and prostate cancers, but I have to emphasize that turmeric (or its active substance, curcumin) is not, by itself, a completely eective preventive or treatment for cancer. Even people taking large amounts of turmeric and with an outstanding diet can get cancer. A recent study suggested that people who use alternative treatments for cancer had worse outcomes than people who did not. This prompts a reminder that potential therapies like curcumin should be recommended only as part of comprehensive cancer care and only after discussion with a cancer specialist. DEAR DR. ROACH: I am 75 years old and had a case of vertigo along with an ear infection. An evaluation included an MRI and bloodwork, and a week later, the earache was gone. I was told that the vertigo was due to the earache. The following week, I had a dentist appointment and needed a lling. I was feeling ne when I entered the dentist's chair. The assistant reclined the chair, and the lling went well. When I was lifted back up, I was so dizzy that I felt like I had gotten o of a roller coaster. I had dry heaves. The next day I went to my druggist, and he suggested Bonine for motion sickness, but all it did was make me sleepy. Did the position of the dental chair cause the vertigo to come back? I'm afraid to go back to the dentist. What can I do? „ D. ANSWER: The most likely diagnosis is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. While I can't be sure of this, the onset of severe symptoms with change in position is suggestive, and the fact that it came and went at least twice over a week or so is also consistent. Finally, an MRI scan (which is often not needed) rules out some of the more worrisome causes of vertigo. BPPV is a common, probably the most common, cause of vertigo. Your description of feeling like you have gotten o a roller coaster is a powerfully evocative description of vertigo, which many people describe as a feeling they are moving when they are not (some people say it's the world that's moving). Although BPPV will get better on its own, a physical maneuver can be performed by an experienced clinician that repositions the crystals inside the organ of balance, which help the brain determine which way is up. This sometimes can cure the symptoms immediately. Vestibular rehabilitation is eective for people with a more prolonged course. If your symptoms don't get better, it's time to re-evaluate. DR. ROACH WRITES: A recent column about back pain in a 69-year-old woman exercising two or more hours a day led me to conclude she may have been overdoing it. One reader wrote in that changing some of her exercise to yoga was successful in resolving these painful "knots" in her back. As always, I am happy to hear from readers and share their wisdom, especially when it's something I should have thought of but didn't.DEAR ABBY: My stepson "Arnold" recently moved out, and I found a notebook he left behind that I thought I'd use. Inside was a journal entry he had made last year about someone he loved. The problem is, it's directed to another man. I want to believe that's not true, but the writing and everything else checks out. I wish I had never seen it. We're a Christian family and have conservative views. Arnold never dated much, but we thought it was because he was so focused on his education. None of us would have ever expected this. There were no signs whatsoever. I feel such a burden right now. I know why he wouldn't tell his parents. His dad would be devastated. I never keep anything from my husband, and I feel terrible not being able to share this. But I don't want to reveal what I saw if my stepson isn't ready. What should I do? Should I ask Arnold about it? How can I take this burden o my shoulders? „ Stressed In The West DEAR STRESSED: I am a rm believer in communication. Return the notebook to Arnold, and when you do, use it as an opportunity to open a conversation with him about it. I do not think you should unburden yourself to your husband. The person to "out" Arnold should be Arnold. DEAR ABBY: At what age is it inappropriate for an uncle to cuddle his niece? She's in fth grade. I don't do anything except put my arm around her while sitting on the couch. She still likes it, but when should I stop this activity with her? „ Wondering In The South DEAR WONDERING: I don't regard an uncle putting his arm around his niece to show aection as "cuddling." However, the age when the displays of aection should be curtailed is when the girl is physically mature enough that it makes either her or her uncle uncomfortable. Dear Heloise: When a recipe calls for CUTTING DRIED FRUIT, it's easier and faster to use a pair of scissors that are lightly coated with cooking spray. Just snip the fruit into small pieces with the scissors. „ Holly Y., Red Oak, Iowa Dear Heloise: This information is in regard to wonderful silicone covers that you can put on pots and bowls. They make a wonderful vacuum seal on both, but be careful taking them o pans or pots when they're hot because of steam. The rst time I used one on my frying pan and lifted it with my ngers, I got burned. Use a spatula or tongs to lift the cover. „ Annie in Ohio Dear Readers: It was a happy accident that tea bags were invented. Originally, samples of tea were sent in tea bags until someone got the brilliant idea to brew a cup of tea with the tea bag samples. „ HeloiseTurmeric is not helpful at ghting, preventing cancers J ournal left behind reveals stepson's love for a man Give dried fruit a few snipsHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby


Page 10 E/N/C The Sun | Wednesday, November 7, 2018 ARIES (March 21-April 19). You wont regret taking the high road. To extend dignity and peace to another is to extend it to yourself. Doing the right thing is its own reward, but this time it will come with a bonus. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Its not like you consciously pick and choose which youŽ to be. The right version of you just emerges unbidden to handle the situation. Too much interference by your conscious mind can only slow you down. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Just because you lower your pride doesnt mean youre signaling defeat. This may be an act of deference, respect or strategy. Humility takes strength. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Gather experience. Repetition of the same task is experience, too, but its not going to grow you like facing the unknown. Youll learn more about yourself in the face of fresh experience than you would through introspection. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Beware of people who act like theyve got it all gured out. Perhaps they really have sorted through a small section of life, and you can learn from them in that regard. But thats not true for every regard. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will express yourself in an open, condent manner and with great warmth and heart. Loved ones will feel lucky to be on the receiving end of your generosity. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Brilliance! Forcefulness! Courage in action! After you give yourself a moment to soak in your victory, rest. Thats the step not to skip. If you keep going full tilt without a rest, youll risk a setback. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The quality of attention you give will make you a favorite among your people. Not only do you acknowledge others when they speak, you also extend an appreciation for the personal risk-taking that may be involved. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Take full advantage of this world before rushing to explore the next one. Youll get there soon enough. And when you do, youll probably look back and count today as being among the gold ole days.Ž CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Can you arrange your schedule so that you can catch the sunset? The magical time just before the sky falls asleep will bring a benet to your psyche and may even make your dreams sweeter. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Something changes to set the usual dynamics of a close relationship a little o-kilter. This is a move toward improvement though it may not seem like it right away. Youll avoid stagnation. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A handwritten letter was once the prevailing method of communicating on matters of news, love, gratitude and intention. Now its a rarity, which is why, if you write someone a note, it will be a cherished memento. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (Nov. 7). Youll push for a change that could transform your whole scene, and it will. Go forward with your plan regardless of popular opinion. (There are some people you shouldnt even give the chance to weigh in.) Also in 2019: high expectations met, love, loyalty and professional advancement. Pisces and Aries adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 44, 20, 4 and 11.

Page 12 E/N/C The Sun | Wednesday, November 7, 2018 would help attract and retain quality teachers. School Board members and referendum supporters held town halls across the community to answer any questions the public had about the referendum, and clear up any confusion. At one meeting in late October, Superintendent Steve Dionisio and chairman Ian Vincent pulled up chairs to sit with members of the public and discuss the referendum. With all precincts reporting, 47,029 of the votes, or 56 percent, were in favor of the referendum, with 36,627 against. Vincent said he was almost at a loss for words seeing the results come in. As the remaining precincts came in, Vincent said he wanted to give a great big thank you to the community. They had said loud and clear education is important in Charlotte County.Ž Superintendent Steve Dionisio said the School Board has a lot of work ahead to get ready to implement all of the initiatives the additional dollars will bring to the district. This has been a long journey, but it ended successfully with the community showing Charlotte County Public Schools that t hey support us,Ž Dionisio wrote in a statement.SCHOOLFROM PAGE 1 FROM PAGE ONEnot uncommon for the mix of suits, MAGA hats and biker attire typically seen at DeSantis events. We knew coming into this race that it was going to be neck-and-neck but the Panhandle is going to throw down.Ž At around 8:30 p.m. in Tallahassee, the crowd at Gillums party, which had swelled to hundreds, nervously watched as MSNBC continued to say both races were still too close to call. They cheered as Democrats in other states were declared winners or seemed to have leads „ Gov. Gina Raimondo in Rhode Island who easily won, or Rep. Beto ORourke, running against Texas senator Ted Cruz. But when the screens showed early results from the Florida races, the crowd seemed to hold their breath. A brief chant of bring it homeŽ broke out after staffer Millie Raphael tried to ease the crowd. Its really close,Ž she said. We continue to believe in him, in us, in the power of people. Meanwhile in Orlando by 9 p.m. the sitting crowd was on its feet, in front of the stage and the mega Fox News screens, booing any mention on Fox News of Democrats winning races across the country, and cheering for any Republican amids chants of Ron, Ron, Ron!Ž For Florida Democrats, the contest was a proxy for the debate that has been raging for years among Democrats: Are they better off “elding centrists to appeal to swing voters or liberals who actually excite the base of the party. Florida Democrats for decades gravitated toward cautious, pro-business centrists from the swing voter mecca of Tampa Bay. And they kept losing. With Gillum, they not only picked the “rst ever African-American nominee for governor but also an unapologetic member of the partys liberal wing. Unlike Nelson, he advocated Medicare for All, legalization of marijuana, and a $15 minimum wage. That debate is certain to continue with Gillums loss. Many Republicans believe moderate former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham would have been a stronger nominee, more likely to win over swing voters and Republicans disaffected with Trump. Gillum seemed to have what it takes: skill, luck and timing. He also possesses a charisma, likability and natural political skill that Florida hasnt seen since Sen. Marco Rubio rose to prominence. Gillum won the primary with just 34 percent of the Democratic vote and immediately became a national political sensation. Race became an issue immediately. On day one of the general election, DeSantis on Fox News warned that Florida voters that Gillum would monkey this upŽ in Florida. Fox issued a formal rebuke for what was widely viewed as a racial comment but DeSantis said was merely a poor choice of words. DeSantis, meanwhile, lacked much of a message beyond attacking Gillum and often looked uncomfortable or unenthusiastic on the campaign trail. He overwhelmingly beat Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam in the primary mainly thanks to an endorsement by Trump and by appearing constantly on Fox News in Washington to cheer the president and denounce the Russia investigation. He has an impressive background „ growing up in a working class Dunedin family, and then going to Yale, Harvard Law, and the U.S. Navy „ but many Republicans worried he was a weak general election candidate. DeSantis followed closely the Trump playbook of warning voters they should fear Gillum. The Tallahassee Mayor Gillum was a corrupt, weak-on-crime radical who would kill Floridas economy. Hes accused me of everything but being a child of God,Ž Gillum quipped in a recent interview. The Tallahassee mayor faced the cloud of an ongoing FBI corruption investigation into Tallahassee City Hall, including revelation s that the mayor had accepted free gifts from an undercover agent posing as a developer. DeSantis repeatedly talked about that investigation, as well as the crime rate in Tallahassee and Gillums call to abolish ICE in its current form. Gillum proposed raising corporate taxes to better fund education, and DeSantis warned that was likely just the start of the taxes Gillum would try to raise. Shell-shocked Florida Democrats will now face the same painful process they have gone through in every midterm ele ction for 20 years: Pondering what went wrong and what, if anything, they can do to “nally win. Since the virtually tied presidential election of 2000, Democrats have won two and lost two presidential races in Florida, but lower turnout midterm elections have been too steep a hill „ often just barely. Alex Sink in 2010, Charlie Crist in 2014, and now Gillum in 2018 lost the all-important governors race by about 1 percentage point.DESANTISFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTO A Republican Senate candidate Rick Scott supporter crosses her ngers at an election watch party, Tuesday, in Naples.

It was a celebration that proved a bit premature.See page 4.INDEX | Golf 2 | Lottery 2 | Local Sports 3 | NFL 4 | Scoreboard 5 | NHL 6 | Weather 6 By JOHN MARSHALLAP BASKETBALL WRITERThe 2017-18 college basketball season had everything a fan could want. Standout performances, a No. 1 seed “nally falling in the “rst round of the NCAA Tournament and Villanova cutting down the nets for the second time in three seasons. Oh, and Sister Jean and Chicago-Loyola giving hope to underdogs everywhere by reaching the Final Four. A new season starts Tuesday, and its been a long seven months to wait for a sport that seems to top itself every year. To get you ready, weve got a guide on the top teams, players and other tidbits to look for in 2018-19:TOP TEAMSKansas. Bill Self has another strong recruiting class, a preseason AllAmerican in Memphis transfer Dedric Lawson and a No. 1 ranking. Kentucky. Coach Cal has another roster full of future pros. Hes also got Reid Travis, a grad transfer from Stanford who happens to be one of the nations top players. Gonzaga. The Zags broke through to the Final Four two years ago. They could be even better this year. Duke. Coach K outdid himself with this years recruiting class with what could be three of the top “ve picks in the NBA draft. Virginia. OK, so that “rst-round NCAA Tournament loss to UMBC was ugly and history-making. But the Cavaliers have nearly everyone back and plenty of motivation. Tennessee. The Vols have never been to the Final Four. That could change this season „ theyre that good.TOP PLAYERSCarsen Edwards, Purdue. He was super productive as a sophomore last season. Expect even more from him now that the Boilermakers need him even more. Luke Maye, North Carolina. The player who hit the shot to send the Tar Heels to the Final Four in 2017 averaged a double-double last season and will be counted on even more this year. R.J. Barrett, Duke. The athletic freshman has yet to play a game but has already created a buzz and could be the No. 1 overall pick in next years NBA draft. Dedric Lawson, Kansas. The former Memphis forward gives the Jayhawks plenty of talent and experience on an otherwise young roster. Ethan Happ, Wisconsin. The Badgers sure are glad this multitalented big man decided to withdraw from the NBA draft. Opponents will not be. Caleb Martin, Nevada. The do-everything forwards decision to return with twin brother Cody is a big reason the Wolf Pack are being mentioned as a Final Four team.MID-MAJOR MONSTERSNevada. The Muss bus is loaded with talent and is driving toward what could be the best season in program history. Loyola-Chicago. No way the Ramblers and Sister Jean will be overlooked again. Western Kentucky. Top recruit Charles Bassey will push the Hilltoppers up the big hill. Buffalo. Bulls have “ve of their top six scorers back from a team that knocked off Arizona in the opening round of the NCAAs. Marshall. The Thundering Herd and coach Dan DAntoni are looking for an even deeper March run after knocking off Wichita State in the opening round of the NCAAs.FRESHMEN PHENOMSZion Williamson, Duke.

This is the earliest that the Southeastern Conference Championship Game has been set.But now what?The rest of the conference is left to eat the scraps that fall from the plates of the leagues top dogs. A chance at a New Years Six bowl remains (if Alabama and Georgia both make the College Football Playoff), but even that feels like a consolation prize. No national title. No conference title.

Now what?By David MurphyTHE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER (TNS)Its worth repeating: The biggest impediment standing in the way of taking another step forward this offseason is that they have very little idea of where they are standing to begin with. Thats not a knock on the navigational abilities of Matt Klentak or the front of“ce that surrounds him. Its just the unfortunate reality of the Phillies current situation. There is very little that the Phillies can do this offseason to become a legitimate World Series contender if they do not also see a signi“cant appreciation in the pieces that they have spent the last three-plus years putting into place. Where once there was a variety of methods for cobbling together a pennant-winning roster, there is now a formula that seems to get more universal with each offseason. You develop a foundation of three or four young hitters with base-reaching ability and 20-home-run power, you prioritize value while building a deep inventory of starters, and then you spend whatever money you have on whatever the top of the free-agent market has available. All three parts of that formula are important to keep in mind as Klentak and his fellow general managers gather in California for their annual meetings starting Tuesday. For most of the last year, the narrative surrounding the Phillies has centered almost exclusively on their desire to make a big splash in this years free-agent market, which of“cially opened for business this weekend. At times, the public perception seemed to hold that the last couple of seasons were nothing more than a biding of time until John Middleton could ride in on his credit line and conjure the ghosts of 2008 with a stroke or two of the pen. But waiting for Manny Machado and Bryce Harper to reach free agency was never going to be the hard part of the process. After all, that was inevitable, much more so than persuading them to actually sign here in Philly. The disconcerting thing about the Phillies current position is that the heaviest lifting was supposed to be done by now. This offseason was never supposed to be make-or-break. Four years ago, when the former regime “nally acknowledged that the organization was on the precipice of a lengthy rebuilding project, there were a number of different road maps one could envision for the return trip to contention.

Whaley was just getting hooked on golf in Syracuse, New York, and she was good enough to compete in tournaments when her name was scratched off the entry list of a junior tournament for boys because she was a girl. And now Ive played in a PGA Tour event,Ž said Whaley, who at the 2003 Greater Hartford Open became the “rst woman in 58 years to qualify for a PGA Tour event. Look how far weve gone. Its not where we need to be, but were making progress. And that makes me smile.Ž Around the time Whaley had her “rst whiff of discrimination as a young girl, Barrie Naismith Jeffcoat was working at a golf club in Atlanta as a 29-yearold woman who was giving lessons and going nowhere. She hired young men to handle the carts and pick up golf balls from the range. Some of them went on to become PGA professionals and got jobs at other clubs. She couldnt join the PGA as a certi“ed pro because she was a woman. Something was wrong with this picture,Ž Naismith Jeffcoat said in a telephone interview Monday from her home in Virginia. At the time I was giving lessons to Superior Court Judge (Joel) Fryer. He gave me the name of his attorney. The attorney advised me to call the PGA. I got a lawyer on the phone with the PGA and he told me, You can call Jimmy Carter, but it wont do you any good.Ž Instead of calling the president, she “led a lawsuit against the PGA in 1978. By the end of the year, the PGA signed the Naismith Consent Degree, giving women equal rights to become PGA professionals. Naismith became the “rst female member on Feb. 1, 1979. She stayed with the PGA a few more years, yet the impact will be felt strongest this week at the PGA of Americas annual meeting in California. Whaley is set to become the “rst female president in its 102-year history. Im so thrilled shell have a high pro“le,Ž said Naismith Jeffcoat, who has never met Whaley. There will be a lot of young women that will take up the game and want to be involved. Its very exciting to me to see it come to fruition.Ž Whaley is a consensus-builder, perhaps her greatest asset. She is foremost a golf professional, still giving private lessons at Suzy Whaley Golf, the course she owns in Cromwell, Connecticut, and serving as PGA director of instruction at the Country Club of Mirasol in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, during the winter months. Her husband, Bill, was her “rst golf coach. Both her daughters played in college. My strength would be that I love the game of golf. I want to get clubs in peoples hands,Ž said Whaley, recently certi“ed as a master professional. My vision for the membership is to help enhance their careers. How can we get them resources and tools to go where they want to go?Ž She also recognizes the historic occasion of the annual meeting Friday, and she doesnt take it lightly. Its de“nitely historic, and Im honored and completely grateful the membership has that faith and trust,Ž she said. I look at myself as a PGA professional “rst. Obviously, Im a woman. I understand the moniker. There are women who have paved the way before me.Ž One was Renee Powell, who last year was inducted into the PGA of America Hall of Fame. Another was Sue Fiscoe, who ran unsuccessfully for national of“ce at the PGA in 2012, which motivated Whaley to run herself two years later. Whaley rose to national prominence when she won the Connecticut PGA section in 2002, earning a spot in the Greater Hartford Open. Thats what inspired Annika Sorenstam to say she would accept an invitation to a PGA Tour event, which she received within weeks at the Colonial. Sorenstam played two months before Whaley. Her name recognition might have received a boost when weeks before Whaleys election as secretary in 2014, Ted Bishop was ousted as PGA president for calling Ian Poulter a Lil girlŽ during a social media rant. But while Naismith Jeffcoat caused consternation in some circles „ after she joined the PGA of America, two men threatened to sue to join the LPGA „ Whaley received 53 percent of the votes from PGA delegates, only three of whom were women, and won election by 19 percentage points. After two years as secretary and two years as vice president, its time for the 51-yearold Whaley to lead the 29,000 men and women at the PGA of America. She didnt want to be president because shes a woman. She still understands the moment in front of her. I wanted to have a seat at the table, a voice in the room,Ž she said. I didnt look at it as male or female. I felt I had something to contribute. That doesnt mean its not dif“cult. Its an enormous opportunity for equality, and to showcase to women what they can do. Golf is an $84 billion industry we want to contribute to.ŽA golf pro first, Suzy Whaley now breaking barriers AP PHOTO Golf pro Suzy Whaley stands on the driving range as she gives a lesson at Blue Fox Run in Avon, Conn. Fifteen years after becoming the rst woman to qualify for a PGA event in 58 years, Whaley is expected to be elected on Friday as the rst female president of the PGA of America.

Smith, who quali“ed for states by carding a 73, “red a 12-over par 84, and is tied for 68th place. Hes getting use to the hills of Florida,Ž said Scott Harvey, Charlotte Tarpons golf coach. Its different golf and hard to simulate.

Davis quali“ed for states after “ring a 78 at regionals.Tarpons battle for placing at States the state line. There is still a chance that will end up being the case. A year ago at this time, the assumption was that the Phillies had the makings of that base layer of success. In Rhys Hoskins and Odubel Herrera, they had two top-half-of-the-order hitters who were in the early stages of well-below-market contracts. In Aaron Nola, they had a cost-controlled, top-half-of-the-rotation starter. In Scott Kingery, J.P. Crawford, Mickey Moniak, and Adam Haseley, they had a pool of promising talent from which another hitter or two could emerge. None of those players is yet a sunk cost. Kingery and Crawford wouldnt be the “rst Top 50 prospects to bounce back from awful rookie seasons. Moniak wouldnt be the “rst top overall pick out of high school to take a few minor-league seasons to “nd his game. Haseley “nished the year with a strong performance at double A and could be in the majors soon. Yet when you look at the teams that have made it to the World Series over the past few seasons, you see lineups that were well ahead of where the Phillies is at junctures similar to where the Phillies are now. Five of the last six participants in the World Series had at least three young hitters who were more or less home-grown who each logged an OPS of .800+. The one exception, the Cubs, featured two such hitters who had MVP-caliber seasons (Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo) surrounded by several other young, cost-controlled bats. The Astros had George Springer, Alex Bregman, Carlos Correa, and Jose Altuve. The Dodgers have featured Corey Seager, Cody Bellinger, Yasiel Puig, and Joc Pederson. Same goes for the Indians (Jose Ramirez, Francisco Lindor, Jason Kipnis), and this years Red Sox (Mookie Betts, Xander Boegarts, Andrew Benintendi). At the moment, Hoskins is the only Phillies hitter who has a full .800 OPS season to his credit. Add a hitter such as Harper or Machado to the mix and you could see how the current mix could work. If Carlos Santana is counted on to be only a “veor six-hole hitter behind Hoskins and an MVP-caliber newcomer. If Odubel Herrera is free to swing away out of the sixor seven-hole. And so on. But the Phillies also might be at a point where they need to start taking some chances in the trade market. One area where they have been rather quiet is in procuring cost-controlled talent from somewhere other than the amateur markets. This is particularly true in the pitching market, where in recent years, the Indians acquired Trevor Bauer, the Red Sox acquired Rick Porcello, the Dodgers traded for Alex Wood, and the Cubs landed Jake Arrieta. Up to this point, patience has been a viable strategy, but the time for making tough decisions has arrived. Offering Machado or Harper the biggest contract in big-league history is not a tough decision. Parlaying the promise of the Phillies current assets into legitimate “rst-division big-league talent could be the venue where the future is won or lost.MLBFROM PAGE 1Georgia, what is there left to play for? Here are a few things.Benny Snell Jr.Georgia downed Kentucky 34-17 on Saturday in the unof“cial SEC Championship playin game, putting an end to the Wildcats Cinderella run. By any measure, Kentuckys season has been a success after being picked to “nish “fth in the SEC East. But no title, no glory. At least one Wildcat certainly wont relent, though: Benny Snell Jr. The junior running back has set out to prove doubters wrong from the seasons outset, and he did just that out of the gates. But in the “ve games since rushing for 165 yards and four touchdowns against Mississippi State, Snell has rushed for 100 yards just once. And in that span, hes found the end zone just three times. You want to prove youre one of the best backs not only in the conference but in all of college football? Put the last few games in the past and run wild through Kentuckys weak remaining schedule.FloridaA year ago, in the wake of Jim McElwains “ring, Florida folded to close the season. The Gators beat UAB but were dominated by Missouri and dropped games to South Carolina and Florida State. Dan Mullen was brought in during the offseason, and Florida has looked like a different team in 2018. But the Gators have been hit by adversity once again „ albeit less adversity than program members receiving death threats „ by losing back-to-back games to Georgia and Missouri. The rest of the season is an opportunity to show things are different under Mullen, that the team wont fold under pressure.LSUThe Tigers havent “nished “rst in the SEC West since 2011, the same year they lost to Alabama in the BCS National Championship Game. Since that year, however, LSU has fallen from SEC and national title contention. A win over Alabama would have vaulted the Tigers back to the conference championship game. Instead, the Crimson Tide entered Tiger Stadium and manhandled Ed Orgeron and Co. Like Florida, LSU can show growth by rediscovering its stride in the “nal three games of the year. Finish the regular season 10-2, win a bowl game, carry the momentum into 2019 and give Alabama a run for its money ƒ by somehow unearthing Tua Tagovailoas kryptonite or convincing Nick Saban to not “eld a defense.AuburnTwo words: Iron Bowl. Drew Lock Missouris quarterback returned to form in the Tigers 38-17 win over Florida on Saturday, throwing for 250 yards and three touchdowns. Now, Drew Lock needs to keep it rolling. A midseason lull left some, including draft analysts, to question whether Lock will be a “rst-round pick come April. Three games against SEC bottom-dwellers remain on Missouris schedule. If Lock can perform as he did against the Gators and lead the Tigers to an 8-4 regular-season “nish to close out his college career, scouts and analysts might switch their tune again.Trending upMissouri As mentioned, the Tigers bounced back from a crushing loss to Kentucky with their “rst win over a ranked opponent since 2014. It was Barry Odom and Locks “rst win over a ranked team. Missouri closes out its schedule with three games against teams with losing records. As an added bonus for Tigers fans, Kansas announced that it will not retain David Beaty at the end of the season.Trending downTexas A&M The Aggies have dropped two straight games, the latest a 28-24 defeat at the hands of Auburn. To make things worse, A&M surrendered 14 points to the Tigers in the “nal six minutes of the game while unable to put any points on the board for itself in the fourth quarter. The Aggies have the opportunity to rebound the next two weeks with games against Mississippi and UAB.

Playing for a regional championship against Palm Harbor University, the Indians cheers were a little bit louder and their high-“ves a little bit stronger as they knew what was at stake. Fighting through the emotions, Venice fought back Palm Harbor in three straight sets (25-17, 25-20, 25-17) to win its 12th regional championship. There was de“nitely a crazy vibe tonight,Ž senior middle hitter Aja Jones said. We all wanted this so bad and we were willing to do whatever we needed to do to get it. We were all super excited and there was great energy out on the court.Ž The win means that Venices season stays alive, as the Indians will travel to play the winner of St. Thomas Aquinas and Mater Academy Charter for the state semi“nals on Saturday afternoon. Though Venice swept Palm Harbor, it wasnt easy for the Indians. The Hurricanes kept it close with the Indians throughout the “rst set, tying the set at 10-10 at one point. However, Jones provided a spark for Venice. The senior unleashed devastating kills on the Hurricanes, knocking over multiple players on the night with the power of her shot. Aja turned out big tonight,Ž Venice coach Brian Wheatley said. Weve been working on her blocking and she had, I think, eight or nine blocks tonight, which is a season-high from her. They didnt really have an answer for any of our hitters.Ž Along with Jones, outside hitter Paradise Gibson overwhelmed Palm Harbor to take the “rst set. By the end of the night, both Jones and Gibson “nished with a team-high 14 kills. Venice got out to a quick 11-3 lead in the second set and looked well on its way to an early night, but then each side got a little sloppy. Shots into the net, out of bounds, missed digs and penalties hurt both teams in the second set, but once again Jones rallied her team with two kills and a block over the “nal four points of the set. Leading 2-0, everyone got involved for Venice in the “nal set. Kills from Gibson, Jones, Sadie Kluner and Carley Faulkner kept the Hurricanes at bay just long enough for the Indians to pull away. You know, we had our best defensive and blocking night, probably of the year,Ž Wheatley said. Weve really been concentrating hard on that the last couple of weeks and it de“nitely showed tonight. Theyre a strong defensive team over there, and you gotta hand it to them because they kept on them, but it was good to see us “nish there.ŽIndians quell Hurricanes to win regional finals SUN PHOTOS BY JUSTIN FENNELLVenice players celebrate on their sideline as the Indians extend their lead. Senior middle hitter Aja Jones delivers one of her 14 kills in Tuesday nights regional “nals match. Venice senior Paige Canevari blocks Palm Harbors Jessa Mielke at the net. AREA PREPS: Charlotte Tarpons Port Charlotte. When the Lady Cougars needed a block, they got it. When they had to get a bounce to go their way, they did. Even when a ball seemed untouchable, they seemed to always find a way to keep it in play. It was (frustrating),Ž Krause said. They played great. I just think we were a little off today. I give a lot of credit to them, they played great.Ž The first set introduced the theme of the night with a long, nail-biting back-and-forth. After the Lady Pirates jumped to a 7-3 lead, the largest lead stretched to just three as the Lady Pirates battled their way to a 25-20 win thanks to three kills by sophomore Azvah Dailey and two aces by sophomore Laticia Nina to end on a 7-0 run. Dailey led the team with 16 kills. In the second set, Barron Collier held more control, but it still came down to the wire. Holding an 18-17 lead, the Lady Cougars were able to secure 6 of the final 10 points to win 21-25 and swing the momentum back in their favor. Barron Collier rode that momentum and won the third set handily 25-16. But the Lady Pirates heads didnt drop. The largest lead of the fourth set was three and it came on the matchs final point. Facing a 24-20 deficit with the season on the line, Port Charlotte gave one last push, scoring two points before the Lady Cougars killed the ball for the matchsealing point.

Page 4 E/N/C The Sun | Wednesday, November 7, 2018By DENNIS WASZAK Jr.AP PRO FOOTBALL WRITERNEW YORK „ Start them right away? Ease em in? Have them sit a whole season? When it comes to developing young quarterbacks in the NFL, it all depends on who you talk to. Some teams think its best to throw rookie QBs into the “re to learn on the job. Others prefer to gradually work them into the offense. Some say its more bene“cial to have them grab a cap and clipboard and take it all in from the sideline. I think every position is the same,Ž Jets offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates said. If someone cant handle it mentally, then you dont want to put them on the “eld, because naturally theyll play slower and be thinking instead of reacting.Ž Sam Darnold clearly passed that test for New York, and the No. 3 overall pick in April was under center to start the season. If a player shows the athletic ability, the talent and has the mental capacity to handle a gameplan and go into a game and be successful,Ž Bates said, then hes ready to play.Ž That doesnt mean things have necessarily gone smoothly for the former USC star. Darnolds 14 interceptions lead the league and have contributed to the Jets 3-6 start. So have his 55.0 percent completion rate and 68.3 quarterback rating, which also rank among the worst in the league. Still, some point to these early struggles as crucial building blocks for the future. Im going to continue to learn,Ž Darnold said Sunday after a 13-6 loss at Miami in which he threw four INTs. Theres always lessons to be learned.Ž Of the 32 quarterbacks currently listed as starters for their teams, 12 were under center in Week 1 of their “rst season. On the ”ipside, some veteran superstar QBs waited a while before they got their chances. Aaron Rodgers was stuck behind Brett Favre in Green Bay before “nally starting in his fourth season. Philip Rivers didnt start with the Chargers until his third year, when Drew Brees went to New Orleans. Even Brees didnt get his “rst NFL start until his second season. Tom Brady, Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Alex Smith werent Day 1 starters, either. In an ideal world, it gets to be like Drew, who had a chance to watch a little, or Tom Brady and Aaron,Ž said former quarterback Rich Gannon, the 2002 NFL MVP and now an analyst for CBS Sports and SiriusXM NFL Radio. Patrick Mahomes sat behind Smith in Kansas City until Week 17 as a rookie last year, and now is a leading MVP candidate as one of the NFLs top gunslinger s with a league-leading 29 TD passes for the 8-1 Chiefs. We knew that Patrick was very talented, but any time that an NFL team goes with a young quarterback, usually its a very challenging endeavor,Ž Chiefs owner Clark Hunt said. Sometimes it takes time, several years, but as weve seen, Andy (Reid) had Patrick ready to go Week 1.Ž Gannon thinks the Chiefs provide the perfect blueprint. Mahomes had a chance to watch a master of his domain for a year,Ž he said. Alex Smith knew that system inside and out, has great huddle command and leadership skills. Maybe he doesnt throw it like Mahomes does, but this is a guy who was willing to share and help him for that year, and were seeing the fruits of it now. Thats the best situation you can have.Ž Again, that depends on who you ask. In the past three drafts, 11 quarterbacks were taken in the “rst round „ including Darnold, Clevelands Baker May“eld, Buffalos Josh Allen, Arizonas Josh Rosen and Baltimores Lamar Jackson this year. Jackson is the only one to not yet start at least one game. Baltimore has Joe Flacco leading the huddle, but Jackson has still been used in the offense and is the Ravens second-leading rusher. The Browns wanted to have May“eld, the No. 1 overall pick this year, sit and learn behind Tyrod Taylor. But like most plans in Cleveland, it back“red. Taylor got hurt in Week 3 and May“eld was thrust into the lineup, helping the Browns rally to beat the Jets in a nationally televised game and end a 19-game winless streak. May“eld has shown poise and promise, but lacks playmakers and is dealing with a coaching change after Hue Jackson was “red. In Buffalo, the Bills werent anticipating Allen starting in the second week. They were taking what coach Sean McDermott called a calculatedŽ approach. But after AJ McCarron was traded before the season opener and Nathan Peterman bombed in Week 1, McDermott was left with no choice but to turn to Allen. The rookie has been dealing with a sprained right elbow and is uncertain to play Sunday against the Jets. When you draft a quarterback like we did, theres a part of it where you have to say, Hey, hes going to play either A, B, or C „ early, middle, or late or next year.Ž McDermott said. You have to be OK with all of that.Ž The initial plan in Arizona was to have Rosen learn behind Sam Bradford. All that changed when the veteran was ineffective and benched in favor of the No. 10 overall pick. Rosen took his lumps with some turnover-“lled performances. Then, Mike McCoy was “red as the Cardinals offensive coordinator and Bradford was later cut „ leaving the job to Rosen. His demeanor allows him to have success,Ž new offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich said. Quarterbacking in this league is hard and when things go bad, this kid tends to be “ne.Ž But, some say too many adverse situations could end up having long-term deleterious effects on a young player. When you put them in before theyre ready, they also get hurt: Josh Allen, Josh Rosen,Ž Gannon said. The speed of the game is way too fast for them. ... Or they have a bad experience, like what wound up happening with (the Jets) Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith, or going back to Ryan Leaf (with the Chargers). They play right away before they are physically or mentally ready or maturity-level ready. They get benched and booed and maybe run out of town, the coach gets “red, and then the next thing, theyre on their third or fourth team. They think he will be a savior and hes not ready to play. How is that being responsible from a coach and ownership standpoint? Its doing a tremendous disservice.Ž Tampa Bays Jameis Winston and Tennessee Marcus Mariota started right away after being the top two picks in 2015, but the jurys still out on both. For those who preach patience, 25 of the 32 current QBs started a game at some point in their rookie season. And, several held on to the job from there. Quarterbacks such as the Rams Jared Goff (No. 1 in 2016) and the Bears Mitchell Trubisky (No. 2 in 2017) started and struggled as rookies, but bene“ted from changes in coaching staffs and philosophies and took leaps in their second seasons. So, whos right? Well, all of the above. Theres certainly valuable experience when you stand and watch,Ž McDermott said. But we all know theres no substitute for the experience when youre actually behind the wheel. Theres a lot of value to that.Ž NFL: QuaterbacksBy TIM DAHLBERGAP SPORTS COLUMNISTMichael Thomas reached behind a goal post to pull out a ”ip phone in homage to a memorable touchdown celebration of the past. Benjamin Watson used his touchdown catch to let everyone know that he and his wife are expecting „ and its going to be twins. That was cause enough for celebration itself on a feel-good weekend for the NFL. So, too, was that bettors in Las Vegas and elsewhere “nally turned the tables and took the bookies for millions of dollars. They could have just as easily been popping champagne corks at NFL headquarters in New York. A season that began in turmoil has reached its midpoint and the league is riding a new high, with television ratings up and fans “lling stadiums to cheer their favorite teams. Suddenly, the NFL is fun once again. It showed Sunday in a shootout in New Orleans that was widely entertaining even without the touchdown props. Then, if any further evidence was needed, it was provided in prime time when Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers squared off in a showdown of quarterback greats. Brady and the New England Patriots won that one, and once again are treating another visit to the Super Bowl as their birthright. Out west, meanwhile, the Rams are trying to win fans again in Los Angeles with a team that could “nd its way to Atlanta, too. And a new group of exciting young quarterbacks are letting everyone know the future of the sport is in good hands. What could go wrong? Well, plenty, especially if President Trump takes an interest in the league once again. But these are good times for a league that has taken blow after blow the last few years only to emerge with its position of Americas favorite sport safely intact. Were the best,Ž Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said at last months owner meetings. And I know thats ironic since weve had some criticism, too. But I think thats healthy.Ž What is really healthy are offenses around the league, with scoring at record levels and 27 of 32 teams averaging more than 20 points a game. New rule changes designed to protect the quarterback and free up offenses have worked exactly as planned, despite some grumbling early by players upset they couldnt hit like they did in the past. Healthy indeed. Things are so good that even Roger Goodell couldnt mess it up. Actually, maybe he can. Not many were paying attention, but there were still a few protests during the anthem over the weekend and the issue is one presidential tweet away from blowing up once again. Meanwhile, Colin Kaepernick remains unemployed, something everyone in the league should be ashamed about. For now, though, the attention is on the game itself. And it can be argued that the game has never looked better. Theres no confusion anymore about when a catch is really a catch, and even Clay Matthews of the Packers seems to have “gured out how and when to safely take down the opposing quarterback. There are dominant teams on both coasts, and a few high scoring games that are reminiscent of the old American Football League. The concussion issue has subsided, though the disturbing fact remains players are still suffering from them „ at great risk to their long term health. Even fans of the hapless Cleveland Browns have something to be happy about with a couple of wins and a couple coaches “red. They also have a franchise quarterback in Baker May“eld and a potential upside thats the envy of better teams. It didnt happen exactly by design. A lot of the NFLs good fortune is due to good luck and an unwillingness of fans to let go of their favorite sport despite its many ”aws. There still is no real grand plan to end the protest debate, no long term solution to the fact football played at the highest level can shorten lives. The of“ciating continues to get in the way „ often at just the wrong time „ and theres a real chance games arent played when the current collective bargaining agreement expires and players “nally make a stand for guaranteed contracts. For now, though, those are distant threats. The league remains the most popular in the country by far, and the addition of legalized betting around the country will boost it even more just like fantasy football has done in recent years. What once looked like a season lost is now looking like a season to remember. NFLBy STEPHEN HAWKINSAP SPORTS WRITERARLINGTON, Texas „ The Dallas Cowboys defense might want to delete that last group photo. It was a celebration that proved a bit premature. On this Monday night, the Cowboys didnt defend their star in a 28-14 loss „ except for Byron Jones shoving Kevin Byard when the Tennessee Titans safety did his best imitation of Terrell Owens infamous taunting on the mid“eld logo 18 years ago. Theres no need for it,Ž Jones said. Were all having fun, but I think when you go and try to go on the star ... everyone knows what going on the star means.Ž Byrads interception in the end zone of Dak Prescotts pass came right after Jaylon Smith recovered the second fumble by Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota and the Cowboys (3-5) looking to build on their early 7-0 lead. That was a big play in the ballgame not to be able to cash in there,Ž coach Jason Garrett said. That was big in the game.Ž Just two plays later, it looked like Smith had another recovery after what would have been Tennessees third lost fumble in a “ve-minute span. The defense had already posed for another group photo, like it had after two fumbles by Mariota, before the play was overturned on a replay review. After keeping the ball, Mariota and the Titans (4-4) went on to “nish a 15-play drive that tied the game. They didnt have any more turnovers and never trailed again. One thing that defensively that we try to uphold is creating turnovers,Ž Jones said. You cant just do it in the “rst quarter and expect the game to go your way. You have to do it throughout the entire game.Ž NFL: CowboysBy RALPH D. RUSSOAP COLLEGE FOOTBALL WRITERThe Associated Press has been honoring college footballs best with an AllAmerica team since 1925. The full three-team AP All-America selections will be unveiled in December. The eighth All-America watch of the season features Arizona States top target; Alabamas dominant defensive tackle and Boise States quarterback, all on the verge of breaking records.SPOTLIGHTNKeal Harry, WR, Arizona State Harry came into the season as one of the most highly touted receivers in the country. He has not put eye-catching numbers as Arizona State has tried to lean heavily on its running game, but he has been steady and productive. No Pac-12 receiver has been a more effective target, according to Pro Football Focus Harry broke out with his best game of the season last week in a huge victory for the Sun Devils against Utah. The 6-foot-, 221-pound junior had nine catches for 161 yards and three touchdowns. For the season, he has 55 catches for 828 yards and nine TDs. What they are saying: We didnt throw it a lot, but we made it count. NKeals a fabulous player and he has two back-toback games now where without his presence, it hurts you,Ž Arizona State coach Herm Edwards said. Outlook: The Sun Devils are in the drivers seat in a cluttered Pac-12 South race. Some more big efforts from Harry could help get them to the conference title game.WHOS HOTQuinnen Williams, DT, Alabama Williams has been hot all season but he came up huge in Alabamas biggest game of the season so far against LSU. He had 10 tackles, seven solo stops and 2 sacks against the Tigers. The third-year sophomore entered the season without much fanfare after being a reserve for the Crimson Tide last year. The 6-foot4, 298-pounder is talked about as the possible “rst overall pick in next years NFL draft, surging past a slew of talented defensive line who will be available in April.WHOS NOTEd Oliver, DT, Houston Oliver “gures to be high “rst-round draft pick by the NFL in April, and the school was promoting him as a Heisman Trophy contender coming into this season. He was mostly living up to his hype, making the midseason All-America team, but he was injured against Navy three weeks ago and has not played the Cougars last two games. Last week he was expected to come back, but was a late scratch against SMU. The competition at defensive tackle is stiff. If Oliver misses more time, he could get shut out from postseason honors.GROUP OF FIVE STARBrett Rypien, QB, Boise State The senior has thrown for 2,779 yards with 24 touchdowns and six interceptions for a Broncos team that began the season with hopes of a getting into a New Years Six bowl and the playoff discussion. Thats likely gone after two losses, but the Mountain West crown is still very much in play. Rypien leads Boise State against No. 16 Fresno State this week. Last season, he threw for 246 yards against the Bulldogs tough defense, but completed only 53 percent and didnt throw a touchdown pass. He is poised to become the Mountain West career leader in yards passing and completions.

The video shows players discussing their ineffective penalty kill and mocking assistant Martin Raymond in what appears to be a recording from a camera mounted on the dash of an Uber Drivers van or SUV. There are seven players in the vehicle, including Matt Duchene, Chris Wideman, Chris Tierney and Thomas Chabot. Post Media shared the video on its YouTube page Monday night. It said the video was originally posted elsewhere over the weekend and has since been deleted. Its not clear who posted the original video. Players ridiculed Raymond, who handles the teams penalty-killing unit. Duchene calls Raymond the only coach in NHL history to have the worst power play and the worst PK within a calendar year.ŽSenators players filmed trashing team, coach while in Uber NHL By JAY COHENAP SPORTS WRITERCHICAGO „ Joel Quenneville knew the deal. After three Stanley Cup titles and nine playoff appearances with the Chicago Blackhawks, the longtime coach “gured this was a big season for him. I only think were in the winning business and we better win,Ž Quenneville said on the “rst day of training camp. Two months later, it was over. The Blackhawks “red Quenneville on Tuesday, ending a wildly successful run that returned the franchise to the top of the NHL after years of heartache. Chicago has lost “ve in a row. This is certainly a very dif“cult decision,Ž general manager Stan Bowman said in a statement. But I believe it is in the best interests of the Blackhawks organization. We need to maximize each and every opportunity with our playoff goals in mind and create continued growth and development throughout our roster at the same time. After much deliberation the last several days, with great respect to what Joel has meant to the Blackhawks, we knew we had to make a change.Ž The 60-year-old Quenneville had another year left on a three-year contract extension he signed in 2016 that pays him $6 million per year, second highest in the NHL behind Mike Babcock in Toronto. He was the longest-tenured head coach in the NHL and the second coach “red in the past three days after the Los Angeles Kings dismissed John Stevens. Whenever Quenneville wants to get back to work, he likely will have plenty of suitors. The former NHL defenseman has 890 wins in 22 years as a head coach with St. Louis, Colorado and Chicago. Scotty Bowman, Stans father and a senior adviser with the Blackhawks, is the only man with more regular-season victories. Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Keith and Seabrook blossomed with Quenneville behind the bench, and the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup in 2010, 2013 and 2015. They also made it to the conference “nals in 2009 and 2014. Quenneville “nishes with a 452-249-96 record with Chicago. He also went 76-52 in the playoffs with the Blackhawks for the best record in franchise history.Blackhawks fire 3-time Stanley Cup-winning coach Quenneville AP PHOTOIn this July 21, 2017 “le photo, Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville speaks at a news conference during the NHL hockey teams convention in Chicago.

Page 2 € November 7, 2018 LIVE LIKE A TOURISTYou may be used to seeing alligators and bobcats in your suburban neighborhood, but if you lived in Florida tens of millions of years ago, you would have seen a very different kind of wildlife. Rhinoceroses, giraffes, camels and other animals we would consider to not be native to the state, or the early versions of them, roamed what is now the state of Florida „ at least the part of the land that was not covered in water at the time. I was educated about that part of my now home states history on a visit to the Giraffe Ranch, in Dade City. Lex Salisbury and his wife Elena own the more than 50 acres of preserve-like land, and when you go on a tour with Lex, he imparts to you all his wisdom about the history of this place, a result of his decades of work as a scientist and college professor. The Giraffe Ranch offers several different types of ways to experience the animals there „ Safari Vehicle Tours, Camel Expeditions, Segway Safaris, Llama Treks and various feeding options. I chose a Segway Safari, which offered me the best of both worlds. With that one, I was able to explore part of the property on foot, hand feeding some of the animals, and afterwards scoot around the rest of the area on a big-wheeled Segway. I was put in with a group of three women, two sisters and their friend, who were all from the Tampa area. Before we saddled up on our Segways, Lex allowed us to choose to feed one of the animals that were in some of the smaller habitats close by. I opted to feed grapes to the lemurs with Maria Kelly, while Joia Bridges fed berries to the bongos and her sister Paula Capucci fed stinky smelt to the otters. It was shocking how gentle each of the animals were when getting the snacks from us. They all very gently took the food from our hands, and I even had one lemur come up to me, stand up on his hind legs and softly put his front paws on my knee to get my attention. Why, yes, I WILL take you and all 20 or so of your lemur friends home with me! After feeding time, we boarded our Segways and made our way through the prairie-like property, getting up close and personal with camels, zebras, tapirs, rhinoceroses and of course, giraffes. It was incredibly surreal to be standing in the middle of ostriches running, zebras feeding and other exotic animals jumping and playing. Really, if felt as if I were on an immersive African safari. Except this was Florida, and at one point, these animals ancestors lived here full time. Since Ive only lived here 22 years, theyre more native to the state than I am. Debbie Flessner writes the Live Like a Tourist column for the Sun newspapers. You may contact her at dj@ on a safari at the Giraffe Ranch Tampa-area sisters Paula Capucci and Joia Bridges spend some quality time with Simon. Ostriches run freely through the property at the Gira e Ranch. A Zedonk, on the right, is what results when a zebra mates with a donkey.

After losing its Memorial Day and Labor Day fundraising events to bad weather, the indefatigable Punta Gorda Downtown Merchants Association will try again. It has scheduled its November Bash for 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Nov. 10, in front of the Old Courthouse at Taylor Street and Olympia Avenue in Punta Gorda. The party is in Punta Gorda,Ž said Jerry Presseller, the former president of the Downtown Merchants Association and a founder of the street party-style event. Its unfortunate we lost the other two bashes to inclement weather. We were a little shell-shocked. But the weather should be good this time around. November is a nice time of year. There will be plenty of people here, and its going to be a lot of fun.Ž The event is free. Proceeds raised from sponsorships and beer sales go to aid the Downtown Merchants Association. The Bash will feature a wide variety of food trucks, beer, and wine by the Orange House. Coolers are not allowed but bring your own chairs and be ready to dance in the street to American Made, a local band that specializes in good, old-fashioned rock n roll. When we do a block party, the merchants always do a great job,Ž said Kevin Gossett, the bands lead vocalist. Its outdoors, so theres the potential to play in front of 1,000, 2,000 people. Its phenomenal.Ž American Made, in its eighth year, is made up of Gossett, Dino Velli on bass; Dan Dragulski on guitar; Paul Evers; on drums and Jim Owen on keyboard. Its a lot of fun,Ž Gossett said. We dont do this for a living; this is our hobby. We do it for fun because we enjoy it.Ž And its never the same show.Ž This is the “ rst time the event has been scheduled for this time of year, and Presseller has high hopes. It just brings people together,Ž Presseller said. It brings our local people together. With many of our snowbirds already here, it should be that much more of a good time.Ž Gossett said American Made is stoked. We have a blast, the crowd has a blast. Its a winwin,Ž he said. When we all get together, its just fun.ŽThe party is in Punta Gorda PHOTO PROVIDEDAmerican Made is made up of Dino Velli, Kevin Gossett, Paul Evers, Dan Dragulski and Jim Owen.

The program will open with a new addition to the Charlotte Bands library entitled ConcordŽ by Clare Grundman. This piece features music from revolutionary times. You will also hear a beautiful medley of songs by Richard Rogers from the 1950s television show, Victory At Sea.Ž This medley contains many memorable WWII songs including the Guadalcanal March.Ž There will be a chance to honor the men and women who have served in our various armed services as the band performs Armed Forces Salute.Ž Two of the more somber moments of the concert will be “ rst, the rarely performed Sousa march, Honored Dead,Ž a funeral march played at the death of President Ulysses S. Grant. And second, an emotional letter from an American soldier to his wife that will be read as the band performs Stone Gardens.Ž As the band recognizes the 75th anniversary of the Broadway musical Oklahoma,Ž you will enjoy many selections, including Oh What A beautiful Morning,Ž The Surrey With the Fringe on Top,Ž and Oklahoma.Ž American VariationŽ by Jerry Bilik is based upon the folk tune Barbara AllenŽ and depicts, through various musical styles, the diverse cultural heritage of the American people. The concert will conclude with Sousas Stars and Stripes Forever March.Ž The Charlotte Performing Arts Center is on the campus of Charlotte High School located at 701 Carmalita St., Punta Gorda.

Page 6 € November 7, 2018 DINING OUTBy DEBBIE FLESSNERLETS GO CORRESPONDENTFrom the town of Puglia, in the sunny southern region of Italy, Chef Dario Leo has spent a lifetime in the restaurant business. From the age of 14, he was working in restaurants there, and had already been trained and was working as a chef for years when he moved to the United States in 1993. Several years ago, he was working in a restaurant in Naples, Florida when, through mutual friends, he met another Italian, Maurice LoMonaco, who had also grown up in the restaurant business. Together, they decided to open their own restaurant in Port Charlotte last year. For 35 years, my Sicilian parents had a restaurant up in Virginia and I worked there for them,Ž LoMonaco said. But after that, I decided to pursue a singing career, so I got to travel all over the world doing that. This restaurant is a combination of those things I like to do best.Ž Rossini Trattoria Gastronomicas slogan is A symphony of music and food.Ž Thats because it combines Chef Darios authentic Italian cuisine with LoMonacos gifts of music and conversation. Though its never really planned, diners may be spontaneously entertained at any time by LoMonacos singing and playing of the many musical instruments that are hanging along the restaurants walls. Chef Dario says that when they were originally discussing opening the restaurant together, they knew that they wanted to create what may be a unique experience for the Port Charlotte community, but one that is very familiar to people where he grew up. We wanted to convey the culture of Italians, the way we are and our sense of family,Ž he said. When theyre here, our Italian customers say, I feel like Im home „ I feel like Im back in Italy.Ž The food Chef Dario prepares consists of primarily traditional dishes he grew up eating and preparing, though his extensive culinary training provides him with the ability to compose unique, creative dishes for the menu. Right now, hes in the process of adding some of his favorite dishes, like some new pasta choices and Octopus Salad, to the lunch and dinner selections. Entrees like Veal Osso Bucco and Gnocchi are very popular here, and every night we have some special items,Ž he said. What those are depends on what is available fresh in the market that day.Ž The partners stay busy with their culinary and music endeavors in the restaurant, and they also host monthly wine dinners and other special-occasion private events. Though theyve only been open for about 10 months, LoMonaco said that they are pleased with the reception thus far from the Port Charlotte community. This coming season will tell us a lot,Ž he said. But (our success) is really the result of the community working with us. We are happy that our customers keep coming back and supporting us.ŽA symphony of music and food at Rossini Trattoria Gastronomica Rossini Trattoria Gastronomica is located next to the Port Charlotte Town Center mall.

Director Ian Bisset has assembled a talented cast of local performers for this farcical black comedy he calls the most fun you can have with Mass Murder.Ž The play revolves around the Brewster family, which includes a pair of spinster sisters who have taken to murdering lonely old men out of misguided sympathy, and their three nephews, Teddy thinks hes Teddy Roosevelt, Jonathan is on the run for murder, and Mortimer is ... A Drama Critic. Mortimer, learns on the day of his engagement that his beloved maiden aunts are homicidal maniacs, and that insanity runs (or gallopsŽ) in his family. Hes thrown into a panic when he realizes whats going on and frantically tries to protect and discourage his aunts from their murderous ways while maintaining a relationship with his “ ance. Bisset describes the play as part farce, part horror story and part massive engineering projectŽ when it comes to directing the ins and outs of a large cast on the Brewster living-room stage. He promises some of the “ nest acting talents in Charlotte County as youve never seen them before.Ž Written by Joseph Kesselring, the play opened on Broadway in 1941, and the New York Times said it was so funny that none of us will ever forget it.Ž Many will remember the 1944 movie version starring Cary Grant and directed by Frank Capra. It ranked 30th on the American Film Institutes list of the top 100 comedies of all time. Tickets are available at or by calling 941-255-1022 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Page 11 € November 7, 2018UPCOMING EVENTSBy RUSTY PRAYLETS GO CORRESPONDENTTheres no swimsuit contest in this beauty pageant either. Thats OK. No need to glam up the contestants who will grace the stage at the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association on Nov. 10. All the dogs will show up on the red carpet already gorgeous when the Animal Welfare League presents its first Best in Show fundraiser. You guessed it. Even though it wont have a swimsuit contest, its really not all the similar to the Miss America pageant. Think more along the lines of Westminster for everyday dogs. Voting is taking place right now at www. BestinShow. There were seven dogs entered a week before Halloween, with the deadline to enter a dog Oct. 26. For $5 a vote, you can vote for your favorite dog as many times as you would like. Online voting ends at noon the day of the event. The show goes live from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Nov. 10. Tickets are $45. There will be food and drink for the people; a red carpet and platform for the dogs. The dogs will be brought out and shown in the spirit of the Westminster Dog Show. Voting will continue at the live event. Pet carriers decorated as dog houses will serve as ballot boxes. Each will have a dogs name on it. For the same $5, folks can vote for the dog of their choice during the live event. All proceeds go to the Animal Welfare League. At the conclusion of the show, all votes will be tallied and a best in show declared. The dog that wins is the one that brings in the most votes at $5 a vote,Ž said Becky Fero, AWL board member and chairwoman of the event. Feros 2-year-old Australian shepherd, Faith, is entered. It could be the ugliest dog, but if it brings in $1,000 more than another dog, it gets best in show.Ž The event is a radical departure from the gala fundraisers that have become so familiar for so many Charlotte County nonprofits. The seed for the event was planted a while ago. The idea came from another organization called Robinson Rescue in Shreveport, La., which has had great success doing the same thing for several years,Ž said Karen Slomba, AWL executive director. Fero is a financial planner based in Murdock. Her office assistant was the one who saw the show in Shreveport, and the night of the event, she was calling me and telling me all these wonderful things that were happening,Ž Fero said. Thats when the idea came to me that this would be an opportunity for us to do a different type of event.Ž Founded in 1963, the AWL has grown over the years to a facility that includes a $1 million annual budget, a staff of 22, and about 100 volunteers. At any given time, 40 dogs and 65 cats are up for adoption. Slomba estimates the shelter is responsible for more than 350 animals, including those in foster care. Plans call for about a half-dozen of the shelters dogs to be introduced to the public the night of the event. The hope is to find some or all of them homes. We needed an event that was different from any other event in Charlotte County,Ž Fero said. Ive been wanting to do it and give these animals a voice.Ž We are hoping for a sell-out crowd and to raise as much money as possible to help the homeless animals at the Animal Welfare League,Ž Slomba said.Animal Welfare League to unleash Best in Show IF YOU GOBest in Show will take place from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Nov. 10, at Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association, 2001 Shreve St., Punta Gorda.

Little has been featured on FOX, NBC and was named by Maxim Magazine as Stand Up Comedian Of The Year.Ž Littles outlook on life can be summedup in two words: Pure optimism. At a young age, he developed and nurtured an upbeat philosophy about life. In a recent interview he revealed, In elementary school, kids would always pull food away from me at lunchtime saying mean, hurtful things like ƒ Let go of my sandwich!Ž Fortunately, Littles ability to see things in a positive light, coupled with his desire to make people laugh, has served him well. While working in a lucrative position as a computer programmer for IBM, he decided to take a huge risk. The Detroit-born comic sent out an all-company email that read, If you arent happy here, quit your job and follow your dream.Ž IBM promptly gave him his walking papers, but getting fired was a blessing for Little and comedy lovers nationwide. He now enjoys an incredibly successful career as a standup comedian and with an impressive and growing portfolio of television and film appearances, he is quickly earning national recognition. Watch Rob in action, and youll agree that he is one of the very best stand-up comedians in the country. A sketch comedy player on the Fox Sports Net Show, The Best Damn Sports Show PeriodŽ and Last Call with Carson Daly,Ž Little uses his training from the world famous Second City Comedy Club to create routines that are inventive, funny, spontaneous, and completely unique. He headlines clubs and colleges all over the country, has appeared in national television commercials and on such shows as Comedy Centrals Distraction,Ž Fox News and SiTVs Latino Laugh Festival.Ž He also earned a role on the CBS network summer hit series, Fire me Please.Ž The Detroit Free press selected him as the Best up and Coming Comedian,Ž and he earned the title of finalistŽ in both the Seattle and San Francisco International Comedy Competitions. Rob was also selected as a feature performer at the Chicago Comedy Festival along with the Boston Comedy and Movie Festival. Recently Rob was named Maxim Magazines Real Man of Comedy.Ž Last Comic StandingŽ on NBC named him, The Happiest Comic in AmericaŽ. Visani is located at 2400 Kings Highway, Port Charlotte.

This year, the event will be held from Nov. 9-Nov.12. In the space of only 24 sculpting hours over a long November weekend, the master sculptors create sand masterpieces, some over ten feet tall, and transform the always beautiful Siesta Key Beach into an outdoor art gallery. The Crystal Classic connects the arts and the award-winning beach, and draws quite a crowd each year. In 2017, the event welcomed more than 60,000 attendees over the four-day period. The competition is modeled after other master competitions that are held yearly in Texas, Virginia, Washington and Fort Myers. In the Crystal Classic, there is both a professional category of sculptors and an amateur one, where artists of all ages can create their own masterpiece. Trish Ivey, who handles publicity for the Classic, said that the numbers of sculptors participating has grown every year. This year, there will be 24 Master Sculptors, consisting of eight teams and eight solo artists,Ž she said. Thats 16 total sculptures, four more than in previous years. Currently, we have 35 amateur sculptors signed up in four separate categories, and we still have room for a few more.Ž There is no charge for amateur sculptors to participate. A plot of sand will be roped off for them to use, and they will need to bring their own tools, since none will be provided. Sculptures will be judged by Master Sculptors at the conclusion of the event and are broken down into the following categories: Turtle Bale: (Family or Friends): Up to four members per team Hatchlings: One or Two Children under 10 years of age (Parents are permitted to coach from the sidelines) Loggerheads: One or Two Children 1117 years of age Leatherbacks: One or Two Adults 18 years of age and older In the professional category, Master Sculptors use every bit of the time they are allotted to create beautiful, lifelike art from the pristine white Siesta Key sand. And for many of them, sand sculpting is a full-time profession. Dan Belcher, who with his partner Karen Fralich won last years top honors in the contest, has been creating professional sand sculptures around the world since 1990. Steve Topazio won third place last year with his partner Ron MacDonald. He is a full-time sand sculptor, while MacDonald enjoys a great amount of success as a sculptor, but maintains a day job as a Senior Production Designer at Walt Disney Imagineering in Orlando. Ivey said that those visitors who attend this years contest will be happy to see some familiar names in the competition. Well have the teams of Dan Belcher and Karen Fralich, Walter McDonald and Abe Waterman, Craig Mutch and Matt Long, and Ron MacDonald and Steve Topazio,Ž she said. And Melineige Beauregard and Kirk Rademaker will be competing with teammates, as well. We will have a panel of seven judges, who are all artists or art-related, to judge the competition.Ž The awards ceremony will be held at the beach on Nov. 11 at 3:30 p.m., though the Peoples Choice honor, which is voted on by visitors, will be announced online on Nov. 13 at at www. siestakeycrystalclassic. com.Art in the sand at Siesta Key Crystal Classic PHOTOS PROVIDED Damon Langolis and Joris Kivits won the Sculptors Choice Award at the 2017 Crystal Classic with their Catalytic ThinkingŽ sculpture. Winter is ComingŽ was the First Place Winner from last years contest. The sculpting team, Karen Fralich and Dan Belcher, earned a $3,000 prize.
