Just ask Karen Tyree, owner of IvyÂs on Dearborn, 446 W. Dearborn St. ÂI sell jewelry from local artists like Jay Rossi, whose bead work is stunning,ÂŽ said Tyree, an ardent supporter of Small Business Saturday. Small Business Saturday is the day after Black Friday. ItÂs a day individual shop owners across the country gear up to attract customers. It was originally marketed by American Express in 2010, and is celebrated on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, during the yearÂs busiest shopping periods. Last year, U.S. consumers reportedly spent an estimated $85 billion-plus at independent retailers and restaurants during the week of Small Business Saturday, according to American Express. Tyree and other merchants on West Dearborn Street Â„ as well as Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte, North Port, Venice and other parts of Englewood Â„ are all in. ÂWe are going to have great markdowns,ÂŽ she said. ÂCustomers can enter to win a $50 gift certiÂ“cate.ÂŽ Tyree said itÂs important for her and neighboring retailers to participate in Small Business Saturday beginning about 10 a.m. Her shop will be decorated with Small Business balloons and memorabilia. ÂItÂs a great day to see new faces,ÂŽ she said. ÂSmall business owners showcase our shops, show off new merchandise for holiday gift giving and give our patrons one-on-one customer service.ÂŽ Tyree and about 25 other Dearborn Street owners will remain open Saturday from 4 p.m. to about 7 p.m., when the day morphs into a ÂWelcome to DearbornÂŽ evening. ÂAnyone who registers for this free event gets a wristband (from a table at the intersection of Magnolia and Dearborn street),ÂŽ she said. ÂWe give each shopper a map of the participating businesses. ThereÂs also a shuttle for customers from stores up and down the street. ÂEach store has something different and unique to offer,ÂŽ she said. ÂItÂs another great way to meet small business owners, shop their sales, buy custom gifts and support your local small businesses.

Board members and volunteers teamed up with Gold Coast Eagle distributing to transport 3,600 pounds of clams from Pine Island. They are now resting in Sarasota Bay where they will help filter and clean the water. Sarasota Bay Watch will release the last of 250,000 clams this fall. Plans are also in the works for more releases in 2019. A crew from Mote Marine Lab told ABC7 that the clams put into the bay earlier this year before the recent red tide bloom are doing well. Mote conducted a study in Summer 2018 to find out if filter-feeding marine life could reduce the effects of red tide. According to the University of Florida, clams and oysters can accumulate high levels of red tide toxins, then filter the toxins from their systems after several weeks. ThatÂs why itÂs not safe to eat clams, oyster or mussels that are affected by red tide.Group fights red tide with clams in Sarasota Bay By STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERENGLEWOOD Â„ Seor Smooth has returned to Englewood Beach. So have the sun-andfun seekers, filling the public beach parking lot by noon Wednesday. Since June, due to the persistent red tide blooms, the smoothie concession stand remained closed. Seor Smooth manager Kateri Clemons, who is also a substitute teacher in Charlotte County, reopened the stand Wednesday morning and was glad to be back mixing fresh fruit smoothies for beachgoers. ÂI know itÂs still there,ÂŽ Clemons said of the toxic red tide algae. ÂIÂm trying to be optimistic. IÂm just happy to be back.ÂŽ She is wise to be cautiously optimistic. Charlotte County is also wise to keep up its signs at the public beach warning of the potential presence of red tide. For more than a week, Englewood and Manasota Key have enjoyed relatively clear days from the airborne toxins from the algae, dead fish and dark waters. When red tide algae cell counts increase to more than 100,000 per liter of water, humans can suffer respiratory and other ailments and killed fish, sea turtles, dolphins and other marine mammals start washing ashore. Southwest Florida Â„ from Pinellas County south to Collier County Â„ have experienced periodic red tide blooms in the Gulf since researchers starting detected intensifying blooms in October 2017. Since last weekend, counts have been low. But that could change. ÂRed tide blooms are patchy and the concentrations are very dependent on wind directions and ocean currents,ÂŽ said Michelle Kerr, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesperson. A strong, offshore northeast wind blew Wednesday morning. Westerly, onshore winds tend to blow red tide closer to shorelines. State researchers are not prepared to say the blooms are finally dissipating. High concentrations are still lingering offshore south of Englewood, Kerr cautioned. The Wildlife Commission posts the results of the most recent red tide water samples on myfwc.com. As late as two weeks ago, high concentrations Â„ a million or more cells per liter of water Â„ were detected in Lemon Bay, Stump Pass, the southern tip of the Cape Haze peninsula and Boca Grande. Normally, the Wildlife Commission posts new red tide reports Wednesdays and Fridays. But with the Thanksgiving holiday, no report will be posted today. According Mote Marine LaboratoryÂs Daily Beach Conditions Report at visitbeaches. org, people at Siesta Key in Sarasota and North Jetty in Nokomis experienced some respiratory irritations and a few fish washing ashore Tuesday morning. Venice and Manasota beaches received an allclear report from Mote Tuesday.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Friday, November 23, 2018FROM PAGE ONE By GRAHAM BRINKTAMPA BAY TIMESYou probably know that many small retail businesses rely on the holiday shopping season to survive. Just how important is it? Consider this: In 2017, the best shopping day of the year was Black Friday, which brought in a little more than $3,000 in sales for the typical small retailer in Florida, compared to $1,706 for an average day. Dec. 22 ranked second. Dec. 23 came in third. In fact, nine of the top 10 shopping days fell between Thanksgiving and Christmas, according to some intriguing research from Womply, a provider of small business software. The Â“rmÂs number crunchers studied the daily transaction records of 54,000 small, independent retailers across the nation, including 3,691 in Florida. Most of them had 10 to 25 employees and just one location. They broke the data down by revenue, the number of transactions and the average amount customers paid per transaction. In Florida, for instance, small retailers averaged $60,970 in December, slightly higher than the national average and $22,000 more than in September, the worst month. While many days during the holiday season ranked in FloridaÂs top 40, Small Business Saturday came in at 106th. Cyber Monday came in at No. 45. Even so, Âthe end-of-year holiday rush is, without a doubt, the single biggest money-making period for retailers across the country, as well as for retailers in Florida,ÂŽ the report concluded. Beyond the holiday trends, the report delved into how we shop during the rest of the year, including how the days of the week have their own personalities. Saturdays boasted the most transactions on average Â„ about 17 Â„ but Fridays brought in slightly more money, a little less than $2,100. Sundays were the slowest for both transactions and revenue. Tuesdays were on the slower end in total sales, but people who did shop that day spent $142 per purchase, more than any other day of the week. ItÂs a recurring trend in the report: Shoppers often spent more per purchase on the least busiest days. In addition, they spent less per purchase on the days that retailers made the most money. Sales and other deals explain some of the difference. Another factor: When shoppers plan to stop at several stores, they spend less at each store, but more overall. The two best weeks were the ones leading up to Christmas, similar to many other states. FloridaÂs third best Â„ Feb. 26-March 4 Â„ was an outlier, for which you can thank FloridaÂs popular late-winter tourist season. Tourism helped FloridaÂs small retailers outpace the national average for sales in most months. The inÂ”ux of guests throughout the year also helped take some of the burden off of the holiday season, compared to states that attract fewer tourists.HereÂs why the holiday shopping season is so important for FloridaÂs small retailersSome other fun facts from the report: St. PatrickÂs Day was the 17th best sales day for small retailers in 2017, better than ValentineÂs Day (44) or Cinco de Mayo (61). MotherÂs Day (348) ranked slightly higher than FatherÂs Day (354). Some small businesses close early on Christmas Eve which helps explain why it came in at No. 301. Thanksgiving Day was super slow at No. 360, only slightly better than Christmas Day at No. 364. Bringing up the rear: Sept. 10, the day Hurricane Irma roared ashore, shutting down a large swath of the state. discounts, rafÂ”e prizes, musical entertainment, and refreshments.ÂŽ Brad Pike owns Off the Wave, 409 W.

First Alliance secretary Tina Eyster has been answering phones for the church all week regarding the event. ÂThere are so many people with no family or no ability to cook,ÂŽ she said, citing elderly citizens as a major demographic wondering where to go this holiday. ÂIÂve spent my days this week crying, praying and loving on people ... their stories are so sad.ÂŽ Luckily, though, those people were planning to join the church. ÂThe holidays are a hard time to be alone,ÂŽ Eyster said. New Hope smoked over 200 turkeys Wednesday while First Alliance prepared the stufÂ“ng and mashed potatoes since 6 a.m. Thursday. ÂWe just want to get to know our neighbors,ÂŽ said Jerry Couture, a leader of First AllianceÂs outreach ministry. Anyone was welcome to the First Alliance Family Center Thanksgiving afternoon to grab dinner rolls, mashed potatoes, stufÂ“ng, gravy, turkey and a slices of pumpkin pie dolloped with whipped cream. Around 40 volunteers stirred pots, packaged potatoes, served turkey and sat and prayed with fellow guests. For one of the churchÂs elders, Jeff Reese, this event was a family affair, including him and his six children all taking photos, serving food and blowing up animal balloons. Â(Thanksgiving has) become my favorite holiday,ÂŽ Reese said. ÂThe idea of having a day set aside to just think about what youÂre thankful for is really useful.ÂŽ The church even boxed up and delivered 144 meals to people who could not attend the dinner at the church, Reese said. The church was hoping to serve 500 hungry neighbors this Thanksgiving, with a handful of volunteers postponing their home celebrations until today. ÂIÂve met the nicest people here,ÂŽ said volunteer and church member Laura Yurs. ÂThereÂs just lots of energy and weÂre keeping each other going.ÂŽ ÂWeÂre all about bringing people into the family around the holidays,ÂŽ said Pastor Steve Tull.Email: Lhardaway@sun-herald.comCHURCHESFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY CHRIS PORTERIvan Engwis, 11, gets some personalized service from the volunteers at Christ Lutheran Church in Englewood on Thanksgiving Day.

But, prior to enjoying those buttery mashed potatoes and other Â“xings, 800 Charlotte residents donned their running shoes to work up an appetite. Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity held its 20th annual Turkey Trot Thursday at the Florida Southwestern State College campus. Some sprinted, some walked, and one person came wearing an inÂ”atable cooked turkey. Right at 7:30 a.m., BMX biker Amanda Carr, dressed as a turkey Â„ living, not cooked Â„ led the runners from the starting line like a charge to war.The WinnersThereÂs a lot of things you can choose to do with 16 minutes on Thanksgiving. Usually it takes 16 minutes to boil potatoes before you mash them. Some awkward family conversations that last a minute can feel like 16 minutes. But Port Charlotte High School senior John Perez-Dunn, 17, spent 16 minutes and 27 seconds completing a 5K Thanksgiving morning. ÂThe guys in front were just pushing and supporting each other to run a faster time,ÂŽ Carr said. Twentyyear-old Chris Daniele came a fraction of a second after Perez-Dunn, who placed Â“rst in the males 20 to 24 group. Number 569 in the race, Perez-Dunn signed up for the Turkey Trot for the Â“rst time that morning. ÂThe cross-country season is over,ÂŽ he said, sitting on the curb near the Â“nish line. ÂI wanted to get one more race in.ÂŽ Perez-Dunn didnÂt spend his 5K listening to music, but rather uses running as his getaway, he said. But after the racing was Â“nished, he was looking forward to celebrating the holiday. ÂIÂm deÂ“nitely going to grandmaÂs house,ÂŽ PerezDunn said, noting before he would nap and take a shower. HeÂs most excited for her plantain casserole, which is a homage to his Dominican roots. Meanwhile, 12-year-old Katrina Machado lay on the ground after Â“nishing Â“rst in the female overall race. ÂIt all hits at the end,ÂŽ Machado said about her asthma. ÂWhen running you donÂt notice it.ÂŽ Machado Â“nished her Turkey Trot in 21 minutes and 15 seconds. Running since she was 8 years old, Machado has broken Woodland Middle SchoolÂs fastest mile record three or four times in her two years there, her parents Alex and Amy boasted. One thing you usually donÂt hear this holiday is someone say theyÂre not hungry (well, until theyÂve feasted) but Machado doesnÂt get hungry after running. ÂIÂm hyper the whole day,ÂŽ she said, looking forward to playing tag with her neighbors when she gets home. Though, sheÂll still celebrate with turkey, corn and mac and cheese when the time comes.The Community$25,000 in donations, 800 runners and 40 volunteers later, Charlotte CountyÂs Habitat for Humanity is closer to helping as many local families as they can. ÂItÂs a great way to celebrate (the holiday),ÂŽ Charlotte CountyÂs Habitat for Humanity CEO Mike MansÂ“eld said. The goal by June is to have built 35 homes. So far the organization has closed on 10 homes and will close on Â“ve more in December, MansÂ“eld said. ÂI truly think this is the best one weÂv e ever had,ÂŽ MansÂ“eld said. ÂItÂs a nice event that brings the community together,ÂŽ Carr said. Special events coordinator Ellen Cardillo organized the event, and though the trot takes a lot of work, she said she has a great group. ÂThereÂs a lot of support from the local community,ÂŽ she said. ÂItÂs a good oppor tunity to support something that I love,ÂŽ said runner Gabrielle Reineck, the organizationÂs senior director of outreach. ÂYou feel accomplished and can burn off that extra piece of pie.ÂŽEmail: email@example.comLOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSCHARLOTTE James P. CaseyJames P.

Page 8 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Friday, November 23, 2018Reduce spending before itÂs too lateEditor: The Federal Reserve recently raised interest rates .0025 percent and more is expected, despite President TrumpÂs request to Âback off.ÂŽ HeÂs concerned that higher rates will harm the economy and he would rather pay down the debt with increased revenue expected from a strong economy. President Trump may be a boor but he makes a strong economic argument. Federal, state, local municipal and private debt is around $50 trillion. This past month the U.S. 10-year-bond yield rose to a seven-year high of 3.24 percent, which is nearly 2 percent above its bottom in July 2016. These rates are inÂ”uenced by Federal Reserve action. A 2 percent increase imposed on $50 trillion in total debt is equal to an extra $1 trillion in interest charges. That diverts nearly $450 billion from the Federal budget and it would completely offset the stimulus thatÂs expected from the tax cuts. A typical worker works 34 hours a week and earns $23 an hour. Their percentage of the total debt is about $312,500. At the current interest rate, they will have to work 440 hours just to keep up with the interest payments and that is impossible to expect. Calvin Coolidge once said that, ÂPublic debt is a burden on all people.ÂŽ Personal debt exacerbates this liability and as interest rates rise it gets worst. TrumpÂs argument is an alarm to reduce debt. ItÂs also a clarion call to reduce spending. Take heed before our time runs out.Frank Mazur Punta GordaElite SEALS busy raking leavesEditor: The person in the presidentÂs chair stated Osama should have been captured sooner by the commander of the Elite SEAL Team. I tend to agree. Except I surmise half of the team developed bone spurs during the chase, and the other half were sent to California to rake leaves. Go Â“gure.Donald Georoy Punta GordaElection report was biased, unfairEditor: Let me say right up front, I know the article was not penned by the Sun Still, did you read it? Or do you use AP articles without review? Monday, Nov. 19, ÂScott wins Senate Race,ÂŽ Page 5, second paragraph: ÂNelson, a Florida native with a twang was defeated by Scott, a multimillionaire businessman and relative newcomer to the state.ÂŽ There were about 100 ways that could have been stated differently. Most would have been far less biased. For heaven sake, Scott was our governor for eight years. Then the article went on to say, ÂNelson doesnÂt Â“t in todayÂs highly polarized political environment.ÂŽ Maybe he should apply for sainthood? Yet, he sure fought hard to remain in that environment. All IÂm saying is, please be part of the solution. This type of reporting is inÂ”ammatory and grossly unfair.Wayne A. White EnglewoodThanks to sheri, honor guardEditor: My wife and I had the pleasure of having lunch with Sheriff Prummell on a day our church, Sonrise Baptist, was honoring Â“rst responders. We were both impressed with the sheriff. The man was courteous and knowledgeable and talked a lot about his family. Ms. Patricia and I both feel privileged to have met the sheriff and we did compliment him, as well as his staff. LetÂs move ahead to Veterans Day 2018. Our little church was honored with a three-person honor guard from the SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce. The honor guard led 33 military veterans into the sanctuary into reserved seating. In the ceremony they folded and presented a Â”ag to a Vietnam combat veteran with two Purple Hearts. Thank you, Sheriff Prummell, and thank your honor guard. Many at our church were impressed. To have a Â”ag presented by an honor guard deputy who is also a military veteran was exceptional. This honor guard made us very proud of our Charlotte County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce. Teams like the honor guard do not just happen; this is the result of leadership. Speaking of leadership, Pastor Cliff Burritt and his staff did a fabulous job of putting this program together. Thanks, Pastor Cliff and staff.Michael Richardson Port CharlotteTrump charity stories are simply untrueEditor: In the letter published on Nov. 20 (ÂPresident Trump is kind, charitableÂŽ), the writer cited two examples of the presidentÂs charity: Âdonating use of his planeÂŽ and Âpaying off a mortgage.ÂŽ In the Â“rst example, I can only assume the writer is referring to a 2016 item aired by Sean Hannity where he claimed Trump sent a plane to transport troops from North Carolina to Florida after Desert Storm in 1991. A quick internet search revealed the truth. A plane that was part of the now-defunct Trump Shuttle Â”eet was sent to bring those troops home; however, it was the U.S. military that chartered Â„ and paid for Â„ the plane. Mr. Trump did not provide the plane free of charge. As for paying off someoneÂs mortgage? Also not true. Supposedly, Trump and one of his wives (some versions say it was Marla Maples, while other versions have it as Ivana Trump) were stuck on the side of a road in their limo, which had a Â”at tire. This story fails the plausibility test. First, the chauffeur should have been able to change the tire or at least call AAA. Also, the man who supposedly rescued the Trumps never mentioned having his mortgage paid off Âƒ to anyone. In fact, in 1997, TrumpÂs ofÂ“ce actively tried to refute the claim. Researching the authenticity of a story is relatively easy. I typed, ÂTrump donating planeÂŽ and ÂTrump paid mortgageÂŽ into my internet browser to learn the facts.Evynn Blaher Deep CreekSpend more money on red tide researchEditor: I learned some startling information at a recent forum on red tide presented by research scientists from Mote and other environmental experts that should be shared: Red tide, an ocean algae, produces a deadly chemical that attacks the nervous system. It can cause death to sea life, including sea mammals. Its long-term effects on humans who are mammals are unknown. No research has been done in this area. Although research has determined that this algae has been in the Gulf for centuries and its life cycle has been studied, no knowledge about how the algae blooms naturally die is known. More research is required. Various chemical and mechanical means have been tried and developed to control the blooms with limited but promising success. Because of the complexity of the causes, more research is required to develop effective methods of control. Less use of fertilizers, use of rain barrels, sewer systems instead of septic systems can help with the control of algae. Chemical monitoring of the marine environment is done on a limited basis. Increased monitoring would provide important data to help with developing control methods, but it is limited by lack of funds. We are extremely fortunate to have world-class scientists at Mote and knowledgeable people anxious to Â“nd solutions, but their work is limited by lack of funds. Since red tide and other algae affect our quality of life, businesses, jobs, value of real estate and tourism, we need to actively encourage our government to provide funds for this research. Contact your representatives. Donate.Diane Mudano Rotonda WestGood experience at Bayfront HospitalEditor: The purpose of this letter is to express my heartfelt gratitude to all the wonderful nurses at Punta Gorda Bayfront Hospital who took part in helping me move forward after the major surgery of a complete replace of my left knee. I was admitted at 7:30 a.m. Oct. 9 by a very friendly staff and operating room prep nurses. Their positive attitude was very important to me. Dr. Constine, who preformed the surgery, was great. Maybe his bedside manner is not what one would want, but he is one heck of a surgeon. I moved here on Sept. 10 and decided to try and solve my knee problem. Lots of pain with bone against bone, that had gone on for Â“ve to six years, and found the AOC and moved forward. I donÂt know much about Bayfront Hospital, but the Health Institute was great to me. I recommend the facility. All nurses and others who helped me, in Room 3018, thank you.Norman J.

The Sun | Friday, November 23, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 9VIEWPOINTAcross much of media lately, the phrase Ânew normalÂŽ keeps cropping up to describe what is, in fact, not normal, as most sane adults have understood its meaning. This is to say, the everyday machinations and human behaviors typical within a healthy, robust society have shifted gears and evolved, not in a good way, to accommodate new circumstances. Overwhelmed by natural and un-natural disasters Â„ from CaliforniaÂs infernos to frequent mass shootings Â„ we gradually habituate to extreme expressions of both Nature and man. Incrementally, we become inured to the oddness of things. It is undoubtedly helpful during such times to be a sociopath who doesnÂt feel much of anything beyond his or own immediate narcissistic needs. When, say, an entire town is incinerated, leaving dozens dead and hundreds missing, it is surely less horrifying if empathy is absent. Or, when a foreign-born U.S. resident is tortured, murdered and chopped to pieces, not necessarily in that order, one can still capture 10 hours of REM without tangling the sheets of oneÂs rest. Ever disinclined to put his or her feet in someone elseÂs shoes Â„ because his or her own are so much Â“ner Â„ nothing on the planet is his or her concern. You realize, of course, that IÂm using ÂherÂŽ as a mandatory attendant to the gender-neutral theory that both sexes are equally susceptible to toxic narcissism, as perhaps they are. IÂm crossing all the TÂs, in other words, to avoid saying Donald Trump. But, then, you knew that. Speaking of the devil, this isnÂt to blame the president for the occurrences described but rather to suggest that his dubious (absurd, weird, bonkers) reactions contribute to a larger lunacy that threatens to become commonplace and, therefore, also part of the new normal. When reality is ignored or recharacterized in ways that defy logical thinking and mute rational rebuttal, then Ânew normalÂŽ becomes, drip by drip, just another category of current events. This (horrible, tragic, bizarre) thing happened and the president said this (loony, off-the-wall, obscene) thing. Welp, welcome to the new normal says the smiling commentator. WeÂll be right back after this quick break When the Â“res swept through parts of California, Trump Â“rst blamed the forest managers, then intoned that Â“res wouldnÂt happen if forest Â”oors were raked. Right. Rakes. We need more rakes. Jobs, jobs, jobs! When Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi journalist and contributor to The Washington Post, was killed in Turkey Â„ at the behest (according to the CIA) of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Â„ Trump Â”ippantly observed that Khashoggi wasnÂt even a U.S. citizen and, besides, it happened over there. WhatÂs the big deal, other than the billions in arms sales? The same day a gunman opened Â“re in a Pittsburgh synagogue, killing 11 mostly elderly worshipers and wounding several others, Trump regaled reporters and campaign rally attendees in Indiana and Illinois with calls for armed security at places of worship and death penalties for shooters. ÂItÂs presumed that this is a case where if they had an armed guard inside, they might have been able to stop him immediately,ÂŽ he said. ÂAnd so this is a case where if they had an armed guard inside the temple, they would have been able to stop them, maybe nobody would have been killed except for him. So itÂs a very, very difÂ“cult situation.ÂŽ Yes, it is. To his credit, Trump recognized the shooting as anti-Semitic, yet he is reluctant to distance himself from the neo-Nazi and other white supremacist groups that support him. The blame, meanwhile, seems to shift from the shooter to the Someone Else, who should have had a gun. Armed guards at every door may become our future, but Woulda, Coulda and Shoulda are unwelcome guests at a funeral. Anyone with an ounce of empathy knows this, but Trump doesnÂt seem to possess an iota. Whereas previous modern presidents have shed tears and found the right words to comfort the grieving Â„ because they felt it Â„ this president makes a pretend show of dry sorrow, then hops his plane to another campaign rally, where admirers will feed the gaping maw of his rapacious ego. Simply put, the man is not normal Â„ and we should resist the inclination to reframe long-accepted standards by adding cute preÂ“xes to distract ourselves from encroaching chaos. Categorizing, which is an expression of obsessive compulsive disorder, effectively applies an illusory sealant to our anxieties. But medicating ourselves with verbal contortions poses an Orwellian risk: Over time, we forget what normal was. Kathleen ParkerÂs email address is kathleenparker@ washpost.com.The Ânew normalÂ isnÂt, and shouldnÂt be, ÂnormalÂ Kathleen PARKERWashington Post President Trump did defy history in the 2018 midterm elections. While his predecessor, Barack Obama, lost 63 House seats and six Senate seats in his Â“rst midterms, Trump held the GOPÂs House losses to just over half of that and bolstered the GOP majority in the Senate. The combination of a Senate map that heavily favored Republicans, and TrumpÂs success in turning out his 2016 base, produced a red wall that held up pretty well against the blue wave. But there are also warning signs in the results that Trump should not ignore. While the working-class voters Trump won in 2016 turned out in droves on Election Day, Republicans were decimated in higher-income suburban Republican districts Â„ including many that voted solidly for Mitt Romney in 2012. These losses are self-inÂ”icted wounds. The economy is booming: Under TrumpÂs leadership, economic growth in the second quarter was 4.2 percent, and the unemployment rate has reached 3.7 percent Â„ a nearly 50-year low. Yet TrumpÂs approval rating on the eve of the 2018 election was 39 percent, the worst for any president since before Dwight Eisenhower. By contrast, Obama had 46 percent approval before his Â“rst midterms, at a time when unemployment was soaring at almost 10 percent. The problem is that Trump has failed to do what every successful two-term president has done before him: expand his base of support. Instead of trying to win over persuadable Americans and bring them into his coalition, the president has sought to energize his base in ways that drive those persuadable voters Â„ particularly suburban women Â„ away. If he wants to win reelection, Trump needs to bring suburban Republican voters back into the GOP fold. In 2016 he won the suburbs by Â“ve points. This gave him the margin of victory in key swing states: In Pennsylvania, he took the overwhelming majority of the stateÂs rural areas and small towns, while Hillary Clinton won the urban areas around Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. But, as a Post analysis explained, ÂWhat made the difference in the end was a Republican shift across much of the stateÂs suburbsÂŽ which Âwas large enough to carry Trump to a statewide victory of less than one percentage point.ÂŽ It was a similar story in Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, North Carolina and Florida. If Trump wants a second term, he needs to win those suburban GOP voters back. There is no need for Trump to choose between energizing his base and expanding it. He can do both by using the presidential bully pulpit to reach out to those who disagree with him. For example, suburban voters constantly hear from the left that Trump is a racist, and no one wants to vote for a bigot. But during the 2016 campaign, Trump reached out to African American voters, visiting a black church in Detroit and delivering a major speech in Charlotte in which he promised black Americans, ÂWhether you vote for me or not, I will be your greatest champion.ÂŽ HeÂs delivering on that promise. African American unemployment reached its lowest rate on record. TrumpÂs tax reform included ÂOpportunity ZonesÂŽ to revitalize struggling low-income communities. HeÂs Â“ghting for school choice and recently announced his support for bipartisan criminal-justice reform. So why doesnÂt Trump visit a black church and say: ÂI promised to Â“ght for you whether you voted for me or not, and that is exactly what I am doingÂŽ? His African American support has increased from about 8 percent of voters in 2016 to about 14 percent in a poll earlier this year. There is no reason it shouldnÂt go higher. And millions of persuadable suburban voters would be watching his outreach and would be more likely to support to a president who Â“ghts for everyone, including those who donÂt support him. Such outreach would be a start toward a broader change in tone. The best policies in the world wonÂt gain traction with suburban voters unless the presidentÂs tenor become less bombastic and his administration less chaotic. Trump can win back voters who Â”ed the GOP coalition in 2018 if he chooses to, and doing so does not have to come at the expense of tending to his blue-collar base. But time is running short. The longer he waits, the more impressions of the president harden, the less persuadable these voters become Â„ and the more likely it is that Trump will end up a one-term president. Follow Marc A.

LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSBy ANNE EASKERSTAFF WRITERA Lee County judge granted a motion to allow defense attorneys for former Punta Gorda police ofÂ“cer Lee Coel to obtain social media posts related to his case from the Punta Gorda Police Department. Coel Â“red the gun in the 2016 accidental shooting of retired librarian, Mary Knowlton, at a community demonstration for the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce. Coel played the Âbad guyÂŽ in a Âshoot/ donÂt shootÂŽ scenario but unknowingly Â“red live wadcutter rounds, intended for shooting holes in targets, at Knowlton. He believed the gun was loaded with blanks. Knowlton was fatally wounded and died on the way to the hospital. A motion by CoelÂs attorney Thomas D. Sclafani states the defense has become aware of social media posts which indicate bias against Coel, as well as potential danger to his safety. He requested Judge Margaret Steinbeck grant a subpoena duces tecum requiring the police department to turn over its archive of social media posts and comments, as well as periodically turning over ongoing posts. Sclafani states researching a potential jurorÂs social media posts can help lawyers determine biases, preferences and inclinations that may not otherwise be revealed through courtroom questioning. ÂWhile there is always a danger in any case that a member of the jury will give false or misleading answers during voir dire in order to be selected as a juror, the odds of that happening in that case appear to be much higher,ÂŽ Sclafani wrote. ÂWhy? Because so many residents of Charlotte County have expressed negative feelings about Mr. Coel and that Âsomeone has to payÂ for the death of Mrs. Knowlton. Mr. Coel is the only person left who can fill that role. There is a heightened danger that more than the usual number of persons will come to jury selection with an agenda to be chosen so as to avenge Mrs. KnowltonÂs death.ÂŽ Coel does not yet have a trial date. He was previously scheduled for an October trial, which was delayed after the defense received additional documents from the Punta Gorda Police Department. Lt. Dylan Renz said the department has not yet received the request from the defense for the postings, but will be cooperative when the request is received. The IT department keeps an archive of everything on Facebook since the police departmentÂs page was created in 2015. The defense will be required to pay for any records requests.Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgSocial media threats to be turned over to defense in Coel case The Charlotte County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce is warning individuals to avoid a scam involving people selling speakers and other electronics from a white van. Reports have come in about the scam, in which two Âhandymen or installersÂŽ have completed installation jobs and have extra home theater speakers, surround sound, or projectors they are willing to sell. They claim the goods are worth $1,500 to $2,000, but they are really only worth $300 to $400, according to CCSO. The individuals meet their unsuspecting buyers while driving through parking lots in the Murdock area, at Walmart, LoweÂs, Home Depot, and other big box store parking lots. The people are selling the goods without certiÂ“cation or permission from county licensing, according to CCSO. The SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce urges consumers to use good judgment and to call the SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce non-emergency number at 941-639-0013 to report suspicious activity.Driver killed in truck crash identifiedThe driver who died in a crash involving three tractor trailers on Bermont Road (County Road 74) Tuesday has been identiÂ“ed as Eddy Casado, 62, of Hialeah, Florida. Casado was ejected from his vehicle after a head-on collision with another semi, driven by Sthenio Syvrain, of Lehigh Acres. Syvrain was attempting to pass a third semi in front of him, driven by Roynel Zequeira, of Riverview. In the foggy conditions, Syvrain did not make it around the semi in time.

The Sun | Friday, November 23, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 11 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSSTAFF REPORTENGLEWOOD Â„ A long-standing Englewood tradition continued Wednesday as a frosty load of Fraser Â“r Christmas trees arrived at Lemon Bay High School. The trees came from the Pineberry Farm in Wheelock, Vermont, a multi-generational family farm owned by the Rev. Robert Potter, formerly of Venice, and his son, the Rev. Jeff Potter. The farm, on the slopes of Wheelock Mountatin in Vermont, produces balsam and Fraser Â“rs each year for Christmas trees, and balsam brush for wreaths. The trees were hauled to Englewood directly from Vermont in a cooled trailer, and placed in the parking lot in front of Lemon Bay High School, 2201 Placida Road. Starting today, volunteers from two organizations afÂ“liated with the school Â„ Project Graduation and the NJROTC Â„ will sell the trees to the public as a fundraiser. The trees are 5to 12-feet tall, and the starting price is $53. Trees will be freshly cut at the bottom, wrapped and loaded in your vehicle by volunteers. Sale hours are noon to 9 p.m. today. The stand will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, and from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays while supplies last. Project Graduation is a nonproÂ“t organization that, with the help of parent volunteers, plans a safe, all-night event for graduating seniors each year on the night of their commencement.

OUR TOWN: FAITH & FAMILY INSIDE: CLASSIFIEDSFriday, November 23, 2018 Thanksgiving Day is a day set aside each year for giving thanks to God for blessings received during the year. On this day, people give thanks with feasting and prayer. The holiday is celebrated in the United States and Canada. The Â“rst Thanksgiving observance in America was entirely religious and did not involve feasting. On Dec. 4, 1619, a group of 38 English settlers arrived at Berkeley Plantation, on the James River near what is now Charles City, Virginia. The groupÂs charter required that the day of arrival be observed yearly as a day of thanksgiving to God. This is from the World Encyclopedia, copyright 1990. God is all about giving thanks. Part of being a Christian is to praise and glorify God in everything we do. God is worthy of our praise and it becomes part of a ChristianÂs life to thank God for all you have and what He has done for you. Our founding fathers had the right idea and set a precedent for us with a day set aside to give God thanks. We all know our culture has changed and people want to give their voice to many things, but as Christians we want to worship and thank God on this holiday. In Jonah 2:9 it is written, ÂBut I will sacriÂ“ce to You with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay what I have vowed, Salvation is of the Lord.ÂŽ If you are a believer will you offer the sacriÂ“ce of praise to God this Thanksgiving? What we do on Thanksgiving speaks volumes to those gathered around the table to eat. It would be most disheartening if there were Christian homes who prepare a scrumptious dinner, with mounds of food, and delicious desserts but forget to thank the author of the meal. It is not only the meal we celebrate but thanking God for all He has done in our life this past year. Every Christian has a testimony of the gift of salvation, the good health they have walked in, the protection of God each day, and many other things that you may or may not know about. God will always open doors for you to share your testimony or even witness to someone who does not know Jesus as Lord and Savior if you are willing to walk through that door and give voice to how great God is. We as believers should purpose in our heart that we never miss the opportunity to give God thanks for all He has done. Judy Onofri is a church elder at FatherÂs House Fellowship in North Port. Email her at onofrijudy@ yahoo.com.Thanks be to God for all He gives us JudyONOFRIBy MARION PUTMANSUN CORRESPONDENTPORT CHARLOTTE Â„ Nestled in the heart of the Parkside district in Port Charlotte is a little church whose leaders and members value tradition and roots over the latest Â”ashy gizmo or buzzword. Trinity Anglican Church held its Â“rst service Oct. 29, 2006, in Margo LangÂs home. LangÂs smile graces a photo on the sanctuary wall, along with those of Ed and Joy Robedee, and Bishop Stan and Yvonne Lazarczyk. All but the bishop have passed on now, but the tiny church they founded keeps growing and serving, with Bishop Lazarczyk now back at the helm. TrinityÂs membership of 21, which swells to about 30 in season, the bishop noted, has met in MacDonald Hall, on the campus of First Presbyterian Church of Port Charlotte, 2230 Hariet St., since April 19, 2009. It spent a couple of years at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County as well, moving there back on Jan. 14, 2007, but made the move to the current site when membership outgrew the space there. Originally hailing from Sayreville, New Jersey, and eventually the retail world, LazarczykÂs clerical journey began 39 years ago today with his ordination to the priesthood on Nov. 23, 1979, in Islip, Long Island, New York. He said his then-wife Yvonne actually got the call before he did. ÂI can remember, we were going to see (YvonneÂs) aunt, and I said I need to see (his then-parish priest),ÂŽ Lazarczyk said. Yvonne just said she knew it was coming. He was consecrated bishop nearly 24 years later in East Islip, and served as a diocesan bishop covering the states of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania for the Anglican Catholic Church. Lazarczyk eventually retired and made his way to the Charlotte area, where he helped to found and lead Trinity until April 2008, when YvonneÂs health prompted them to relocate near family in Massachusetts. He and Yvonne shared 53 years together before AlzheimerÂs claimed her after a 10-year battle with the disease. The bishop was certain of two By KAYLA GLEASONSUN CORRESPONDENTFirst Alliance Church has been a force in the community since the Â60s, but this year, they got the opportunity to take part in something new Â„ cooking and serving a full turkey dinner to hundreds of guests. ÂThereÂs a church in North Port, our daughter church Â„ that means that they started as a result of our people moving there to open a new church Â„ theyÂre called New Hope Alliance Church. They have been doing this for years but this is the Â“rst year theyÂve asked us,ÂŽ said Pastor Tony Huffer. Christ Lutheran Church in Englewood, Wellspring Church in North Port and Go Church in Port Charlotte also signed on to help. ÂThey want(ed) to serve up to 3,000 meals this year. We hope(d) to serve between 500 and 700 people here alone.ÂŽ In order to reach the greatest number of people, First Alliance not only set tables and chairs at the campus, but they also went out and delivered meals as well. One volunteer also noted a number of calls sheÂd received were from wheelchair-bound or visually impaired residents. Everything for the classic feast from turkeys to mashed potatoes to pumpkin and pecan pies was donated by area businesses like Walmart. ÂWe had a team go through the city from business to business asking for donations. Some stores gave gift cards and others gave food,ÂŽ Huffer said. And to keep everything on track, nearly 100 people from the church volunteered their time, decorating, cooking and cleaning up. ÂA lot of families actually decided to not do a traditional Thanksgiving dinner but to come and serve instead,ÂŽ Huffer said. ÂThis is what weÂre here for, connecting with people, serving the area.ÂŽ But until recently, large outreach programs werenÂt really a possibility. A major reason First Alliance had never participated before was due to space. However, the church has undergone countless renovation projects in the past few years to help them better engage with and serve the community. ÂWe bought three houses that we turned into ofÂ“ces and a storage garage. They expanded the childrenÂs department and built the Family Life Center, our gym,ÂŽ Huffer said. And with the holidays arriving, the Family Life Center isnÂt stopping at Thanksgiving dinner. ÂWe use it for Toy for Tots and, next week, the Charlotte Players are holding their Madrigal Dinner,ÂŽ Huffer said. According to the Charlotte Players, the Madrigal is a ÂMedieval Celebration of Christmas with singing, dancing and musical productions by a cast of over 75 talented actors, carolers, dancers, gymnasts and jugglers.ÂŽ The space is also rented out to schools and sports teams throughout the area, reÂ”ecting the churchÂs wide array of members. ÂWeÂve got a lot of diversity Â„ age diversity, ethnic diversity, high-income and low-income families,ÂŽ said Huffer. ÂWeÂre totally contemporary, we do not have traditional worship here. The reason why is probably every nine out of 10 churches in this county are doing more of a traditional service and thereÂs a large part of the population that are not church people so itÂs hard to reach them with that style.ÂŽ For around 20 years, the church has offered a lively service featuring a rock band and the occasional cello or banjo. They even have their own coffee shop on-site. ÂOur goal is to reach people in Charlotte County. ThatÂs really our passion,ÂŽ said Huffer, who hopes to continue hosting large community-wide events in the future Â„ including the annual Thanksgiving dinner.First Alliance put the ÂgivingÂ in Thanksgiving Executive Pastor Tony Huer.

Sixteen years later I was led to come to my current position with Saving Grace. Our current church was formerly known as the Good Shepard and has now become Saving Grace because they had the same desire to study as we do.ÂŽQ What is the most challenging thing about what you do? AÂI would say trying to live the example of Christ. To live life like Christ is the greatest challenge for any one of us.ÂŽQ What makes your church or congregation unique?AÂWe have four basic principles that we live by to seek to exult God in song and word, we are committed to Â“nd what the original author meant when he wrote the Bible, we are committed to edifying the saints through discipleship and counseling, and we are committed to evangelism to the lost.ÂŽ Nominate your religious leader for Meet the Preacher!

The Sun | Friday, November 23, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5 OUR TOWN Â„ FAITH & FAMILYthings at that time: He was never getting married again; and life in Florida was part of his past. Of course, he didnÂt count on connecting with a recently widowed Janet at a bereavement support group. Both their marriage and the bishopÂs return to Trinity are going on a strong four years now, although visits back to the frozen North to visit with children and grandchildren are a frequent respite from all the warm, sunny weather plaguing them here.Anglican Catholic Church distinctionsWith its archbishop, the Most Rev. Mark Haverland, based in Athens, Georgia, serving as the faithÂs spiritual leader, the Anglican Catholic Church is separate from what most know as the Anglican Church in England, or the Episcopal Church here in the USA. According to Lazarczyk, the main differences encompass a more conservative, traditional or ÂorthodoxÂŽ focus, with the Anglican Catholic Church retaining the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and 1940 Hymnal. These texts keep to the tradition of not ordaining women as clergy, for instance, and thus the church seeks to keep to the old ways and not participate in the sweeping changes voted in by the Episcopal and related church leadership in recent years. It differs from the Roman Catholic Church chieÂ”y in not following the popeÂs infallibility, as that faith does, although the Anglican Catholic Church does celebrate the same sacraments and many of the same Holy Days as the Church in Rome. Most of TrinityÂs members, according to Lazarczyk and Deacon Gene Willis, come from the Episcopal Church, as they have become dissatisÂ“ed with that denomination and wish to get back to old Catholic traditions. And despite their small numbers, they are engaged in making a difference in the community Â„ putting together baskets for those in need around Christmas and Easter, as well as offering Â“nancial support for Port Charlotte Middle School to use for students who need a little extra help with food, clothes, etc. The church also supports sister churches overseas, mainly Africa, Lazarczyk said. Anyone is welcome to come enjoy a Sunday service at Trinity and learn more about the church. There is no Sunday school, just a 10 a.m. service. Holy Day services may differ Â„ Christmas Eve ÂMidnight MassÂŽ is at noon, after all Â„ but all are welcome to those too. Membership too is an easy process. The main confession of faith is the Nicene Creed, and there is little formality to joining beyond stating a desire to do so. Speak with Lazarczyk or Willis for more details. For more information, visit www.trinityacc.org, call 631-682-9923, or email help@trinityacc. org.TRINITYFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY MARION PUTMANThe altar at Trinity Anglican Church features a tabernacle gifted to the church from Bishop Stan LazarczykÂs former parish in Boston, St. BotolophÂs, where he supplied services for ve years when he was back in Massachusetts. PHOTO PROVIDEDBishop Stan Lazarczyk, second from left, is the sole survivor of Trinity AnglicanÂs original founders, pictured here in a photo given pride of place in the church sanctuary. The other founders are, from left, Ed Robedee; the bishopÂs late rst wife, Yvonne Lazarczyk; Joy Robedee; and Margo Lang. The pictureÂs caption notes it is from March 23, 2008. HandelÂs ÂMessiahÂConductor Robert Romanski will lead the Englewood United Methodist Church Chancel Choir with guest members from other area choirs in presenting the Christmas portion of HandelÂs ÂMessiahÂŽ at 4 p.m. Dec. 1 in the sanctuary at 700 E.

THE NEWS WIRESTATE Â€ NATIONAL Â€ WORLD Â€ BUSINESS President Trump demands judicial Âcommon sense,Â shrugs off Chief Justice RobertsSee Page 8 Friday, November 23, 2018 By STEPHEN R. GROVES and MICHAEL R. SISAKASSOCIATED PRESSNEW YORK Â„ Frigid temperatures and blustery winds were no match for holiday cheer as giant character balloons took to the skies, and performers on Â” oats and marching bands made their way through New York CityÂs streets on Thursday for MacyÂs Thanksgiving Day Parade. SpongeBob, Charlie Brown, the Grinch and other big balloons were cleared for takeoff just before the parade, although some of them Â” oated at noticeably lower heights above the people holding their tethers, like the outstretched hand of the ÂDiary of a Wimpy KidÂŽ balloon that appeared to hit some of his handlers on their wool cap-covered heads. The 21 degrees at the start made it one of the coldest Thanksgivings in the city in decades. Forecasts called for sustained winds of up to 20 mph and gusts to 30 mph. OfÂ“ cials had been ready to order the 16 helium-Â“ lled balloons to a lower altitude or removed entirely if sustained winds exceed 23 mph and gusts exceed 34 mph. There have been mishaps and injuries in the past when gusts blew them off course. Bystanders refused to let cold temperatures put a damper on watching the parade, breaking out the blankets and sleeping bags to watch the giant balloons go by. Tony Stout camped out with his extended family since 2 a.m. to make sure they got a good view of his son, who was in the parade with The Ohio State University marching band. They traveled from Columbus, Ohio, for the parade. ÂOhhh, IÂm freezing and numb, but excited,ÂŽ he said. Diana Ross, John Legend, Martina McBride and the Muppets from ÂSesame StreetÂŽ performed in the frigid cold. Thursday has the potential to be New York CityÂs coldest Thanksgiving since 1901, when the temperature only got as high as 26 degrees. The coldest on record was in 1871, when the warmest it got was 22 degrees. The MacyÂs parade didnÂt start until 1924. New York City has issued an extreme cold weather alert and is urging anyone going outside to wear hats, scarves, gloves and layered clothing and to keep their Â“ ngertips, earlobes, and noses covered to prevent frostbite. Police Commissioner James OÂNeill said thousands of ofÂ“ cers were stationed along the parade route. They included counterterrorism teams with long guns, plainclothes ofÂ“ cers mixed in with the crowd and a new squad of K-9 teams that can sniff out explosives from a few hundred feet away. The parade runs 46 blocks from the west side of Central Park to MacyÂs Â” agship store in midtown Manhattan. The parade features about 8,000 marchers, including high school bands from across the country, and two-dozen Â” oats culminating with the arrival of Santa Claus.Despite cold & wind, balloons fly at MacyÂs Thanksgiving Day paradeParade began amid blustery winds and coldest temperatures in eventÂs historyAP PHOTOSA nutcracker soldier balloon Â” oats down 6th Avenue during the 92nd annual MacyÂs Thanksgiving Day Parade, Thursday, in New Yor k. Santa Claus waves to the crowd. The Fleck, Bjorn, Jojo, and Hugg balloons. By JILL COLVINASSOCIATED PRESSPALM BEACH, Fla. Â„ President Donald Trump made a Thanksgiving Day threat to close the U.S. border with Mexico for an undisclosed period of time if his administration determines that its southern ally has lost ÂcontrolÂŽ on its side. Trump also said he has given the thousands of active-duty troops he sent to the border before the Nov. 6 midterm elections the ÂOKÂŽ to use lethal force against migrants Âif they have to.ÂŽ And he said Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, whom he has faulted for not being tough enough on immigration, is Âin there trying.ÂŽ ÂItÂs a tough job,ÂŽ he said. The president would not discount the possibility of a partial government shutdown early in December over lawmakersÂ refusal to allocate the billions of dollars he is demanding for a border wall, the central promise of his 2016 campaign. ÂCould there be a shutdown? There certainly could, and it will be about border security, of which the wall is a part,ÂŽ Trump said. Trump made the comments in a wide-ranging question-and-answer session with reporters at his Florida golf club after he conveyed holiday wishes in a telephone call with select members of the American military serving around the globe. That conversation grew from a presidential expression of gratitude for their commitment to protecting the country and its interest and touched on a variety of political topics, including immigration policy, the economy and TrumpÂs displeasure with court rulings against administration initiatives. In his remarks afterward to reporters, Trump moved quickly from issue to issue, from the border and his public dispute with Chief Justice John Roberts to relations with China, a possible staff and Cabinet shake-up and his defense of acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker. TrumpÂs border threat came days after a federal judge put the administrationÂs asylum policy on hold. Under that new policy, Trump declared no one could apply for asylum except at an ofÂ“ cial border entry point. Some ports of entry are already facing huge backups, with people waiting for weeks. The U.S. government shut down one port of entry, San Ysidro, in California, for several hours early Monday morning to bolster security amid concerns about a potential inÂ” ux of migrant caravan members. Most of the lanes were reopened before the morning rush. Trump repeated NielsenÂs claim, made earlier this week when she visited a San Diego PaciÂ“ c Coast beach to see newly installed razor wire wrapped around a towering border wall that cuts across the sand, that there were as many as 500 criminals and gang members in the group heading northward. Nielsen refused to answer questions about how they were identiÂ“ ed or what crimes they had committed. Trump asserted that there are ÂÂ“ stÂ“ ghts all over the streetsÂŽ in Tijuana, Mexico, and that Âthese are not like normal, innocent people.ÂŽ ÂThese are people you talk to them and they start a Â“ stÂ“ ght,ÂŽ he said. ÂI donÂt want that in this country.ÂŽ The people of Tijuana Âopened up with wide armsÂŽ to welcome the caravan, Trump said, and Ânow theyÂre going crazy to get them out ... because bad things are happening.ÂŽTrump issues Thanksgiving threat to close US-Mexico borderPresident meets with USCoast Guard members, calls troops AP PHOTOPresident Donald Trump meets and poses for a photo with members of the U.S. Coast Guard stationed at United States Coast Guard Station Lake Worth Inlet in Riviera Beach, Fla., on Thanksgiving Day. $99 oDrain Service Call ORWater Heater Install*RESTRICTIONS APPLY adno=3622842PUNTA GORDA PORT CHARLOTTE NORTH PORT ENGLEWOOD VENICE SARASOTA BRADENTON NAPLES FT.

Page 2 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Friday, November 23, 2018STATE / WORLD NEWSBy TERRY SPENCERASSOCIATED PRESSFORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. Â„ The sheriff leading the state commission investigating FloridaÂs high school massacre says he now believes trained, volunteer teachers should have access to guns so they can stop shooters who get past other safeguards. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, chairman of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission, said he will ask the panel to recommend state law be changed so teachers who undergo background checks and extensive training will be allowed to have guns on campus as a last line of defense. ItÂs a proposal that both the state teachers union and PTA oppose. Gualtieri told The Associated Press this week he long believed only law enforcement personnel should carry guns at school, but his position ÂmorphedÂŽ after studying other shootings and watching security video of the Feb. 14 Stoneman Douglas attack, which left 14 students and three staff members dead. He said it ÂgnawsÂŽ at him that suspect Nikolas Cruz stopped Â“ring Â“ve times to reload his AR-15 semi-automatic riÂ”e, but no teacher or other school employee could use those pauses to shoot Cruz. The athletic director and a coach, both unarmed, died trying to stop Cruz and at least one teacher minutes later would have had a clear shot. Meanwhile, video shows the Broward County sheriffÂs deputy assigned to the school drew his gun but stayed outside. By the time other law enforcement arrived, the Â“nal fatal shots had been Â“red. ÂWe know from the history of these things that the majority are stopped by school personnel,ÂŽ Gualtieri said, pointing to shootings where the gunman was tackled or disarmed by a teacher or campus employee. ÂPeople need to keep an open mind to it as the reality is that if someone else in that school had a gun it could have saved kidsÂ lives.ÂŽ After the shooting, Florida law was changed to allow school districts to train and arm employees other than teachers, including administrators, librarians and custodians. Teachers are barred unless they are former or current police ofÂ“cers, current members of the military or Junior Reserve OfÂ“cer Training Corps instructors. Thirteen of the stateÂs 67 countywide districts adopted the program, mostly in rural parts of the state. Currently, teachers in 28 states can carry Â“rearms, according to the Crime Prevention Research Center, a conservative nonproÂ“t organization. District approval is required in most states and restrictions and training requirements vary. Both the Florida Education Association, which is the state teachers union, and the Florida PTA oppose arming teachers, saying having more guns on campus will make schools more dangerous, not less. ÂTeachers should not be acting as armed security guards. The majority of our members donÂt want to be armed Â„ they know it would be impractical and dangerous,ÂŽ union spokeswoman Joni Branch said. Angie Gallo, the state PTAÂs legislation chair, said only law enforcement should carry guns on campus. ÂTeachers need to teach,ÂŽ Gallo said. ÂTheir job is not to secure our schools. It is not to shoot at shooters.ÂŽ Other members of GualtieriÂs commission, including Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, have expressed support for arming teachers, although it is unclear if a majority agrees. The 15 panel members appointed by Gov. Rick Scott and legislative leaders include law enforcement, education and mental health professionals, a legislator and the fathers of two slain students. The panel, which has been meeting periodically since April, must Â“le its initial report to Scott, incoming Gov. Ron DeSantis and the Legislature by Jan. 1. It will consider proposals for adoption at its midDecember meeting. Other proposed recommendations include preventing outside attacks by limiting and stafÂ“ng entrances; allowing all school employees to order a lockdown; improving campus communication systems; and tightening laws governing the assessment of students who may pose a threat. For law enforcement, the proposals include giving ofÂ“cers clear orders that they must confront active shooters, even if they are alone, and making sure Â“rst responders from different agencies have radios that can quickly be programmed to communicate with each other.Sheriff supports armed teachers to stop school shootersTeachers union and PTA oppose plan, say only law enforcement should carry guns on campus AP FILE PHOTOMarjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission chair and Pinellas County Sheri Bob Gualtieri speaks during a commission meeting in Sunrise, Fla. Man stored stolen gear in car with dead alligatorsFORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) Â„ Police in Florida say a man inadvertently showed ofÂ“cers two dead alligators stored in the trunk of his car when he went to surrender stolen Â“shing gear. News outlets report a Fort Pierce police report says 25-yearold Christian Thomas Elmore was seen Monday leaving a Walmart with the stolen gear. It says the storeÂs loss prevention ofÂ“cer confronted him and asked him to return to the store. It says police ofÂ“cers then arrived and Elmore agreed to return the gear. It says they walked to ElmoreÂs car and he opened the truck, revealing the stolen gear and dead alligators. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission took the dead animals.Guards, others charged in prison contraband schemeMILTON, Fla. (AP) Â„ Authorities say six women, including current and former guards, have been charged in a scheme to smuggle tobacco, drugs and other contraband into a Florida prison. The Florida Department of Corrections announced the arrests this week of correctional ofÂ“cer Olivia Braswell, correctional ofÂ“cer Mia MartinezWelch, former correctional ofÂ“cer trainee Leslie Penrod, former correctional ofÂ“cer trainee Arielle Oberdier, former correctional ofÂ“cer Caitlyn Handley and civilian Geraldine Bauer. Charges vary but primarily consist of unlawful compensation, introduction of contraband, ofÂ“cial misconduct, gang-related activities and unlawful use of a two-way communication device.Deputies search for escaped inmate who stole carORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Â„ An inmate at a Florida jail escaped and ofÂ“cials say he stole an unmarked sheriffÂs vehicle and Â”ed to Orlando. Florida Today reports that Brevard County SheriffÂs deputies are searching for 58-year-old Daniel Amoroso. They say he stole the Chevy Impala from the Brevard County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce Â”eet maintenance building sometime Tuesday evening, and the car was recovered in Orlando early Wednesday. Amoroso worked at the facility as a trustee, an inmate that is given a little more freedom and usually assigned work detail. He was being held at the jail after failing to appear in court on a grand theft charge, and had a hold for also failing to appear in Broward County on a separate grand theft charge.Worker dead after garbage truck overturns in FloridaPALM COAST, Fla. (AP) Â„ Authorities say a worker was crushed to death when a garbage truck overturned in a Florida neighborhood. The Daytona Beach NewsJournal reports that the Waste Pro truck crashed Wednesday morning in Palm Coast. Florida Highway Patrol says the victim had been in the truckÂs passenger seat when it tipped over in a swale. Sgt. Dylan Bryan says the driver may have entered a curve a little too fast. The victim apparently tried to exit the truck as it overturned, causing him to be trapped underneath. Waste Pro spokesman Ron Pecora says the victim was a helper who assisted truck drivers in collecting garbage, yard waste and recyclables. The truck weighs more than 40,000 pounds.Amazon delivery center opens in South FloridaSUNRISE, Fla. (AP) Â„ Amazon has opened a new delivery center in South Florida, which company ofÂ“cials say will allow for faster deliveries in the region. The Sun Sentinel reports that the new, fully-staffed facility has opened in Sunrise in time for the holidays. The delivery center occupies more than 100,000 square feet in a former distribution center used by online retailer Fanatics at the Sawgrass International Corporate Park. An Amazon spokeswoman says the company has 75 delivery centers across the United States. The company opened a Prime Hub fulÂ“llment center in the Wynwood Arts District in Miami-Dade County last year and a warehouse in Opa-locka in August. The News-Press reports that an Amazon distribution center was set to open in Fort Myers this month, but thatÂs been delayed.Florida naval station gets new battle shipJACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Â„ A U.S. Naval station in Florida has received its newest battle ship in time for Thanksgiving. The Florida Times-Union reports that the USS Sioux City and its 75 sailors arrived at Mayport Naval Station on Wednesday. The ship was commissioned into the Navy over the weekend at the U. S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. The ship is 19th vessel now stationed in Mayport and the Â“rst ship to be named after IowaÂs fourth largest city. The 378-foot-long (115-meter-long) Sioux City is the Â“fth vessel in what is expected to be 12 battle ships assigned to Littoral Combat Ship Squadron 2. The future USS Wichita is expected to arrive in Mayport in January. NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATE WORLD NEWSBy ASHOK SHARMAASSOCIATED PRESSNEW DELHI (AP) Â„ The Â“rst time American John Allen Chau made it to the remote North Sentinel Island in the Indian Ocean, he came bearing gifts that included a football and Â“sh. He interacted with some of the tribesmen Â„ who survive by hunting, Â“shing and collecting wild plants and are known for attacking anyone who comes near with bows and arrows and spears Â„ until they became angry and shot an arrow at him. It struck a book Chau was carrying, which an acquaintance said was a Bible. The 26-year-old adventurer and Christian missionary then swam back to a boat of Â“shermen that was waiting at a safe distance. That night, he wrote about his adventures and left his notes with the Â“shermen. He returned to the island the next day, on Nov. 16. What happened then isnÂt known, but on the morning of the following day, the Â“shermen watched from the boat as tribesmen dragged ChauÂs body along the beach. Dependera Pathak, director-general of police on IndiaÂs Andaman and Nicobar Islands, said Wednesday that the seven Â“shermen have been arrested for helping the American reach North Sentinel Island. Visits to the island are heavily restricted by the government, and ofÂ“cials were working with anthropologists to recover the body. ÂIt was a case of misdirected adventure,ÂŽ Pathak said. Chau was apparently shot and killed by arrows, but the cause of death canÂt be conÂ“rmed until his body is recovered, Pathak told The Associated Press. In an Instagram post, his family said it was mourning him as a Âbeloved son, brother, uncle and best friend to us.ÂŽ The family also said it forgave his killers and called for the release of those who assisted him in his quest to reach the island. ÂHe ventured out on his own free will and his local contacts need not be persecuted for his own actions,ÂŽ the family said. Authorities say Chau arrived in the area on Oct. 16 and stayed in a hotel while he prepared to travel to the island. It was not his Â“rst time in the region: he had visited the Andaman and Nicobar Islands in 2015 and 2016. North Sentinel is part of the Andaman Islands and sits at the intersection of the Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea. With help from a friend, Chau hired the seven ÂA case of misdirected adventureÂ: Isolated tribesmen kill AmericanChristian missionary apparently shot and killed by arrows AP PHOTOIn this October 2018 photo, John Allen Chau, right, stands with Founder of Ubuntu Football Academy Casey Prince, 39, just days before he left for India.Â“shermen for $325 to take him there on a boat, which also towed the kayak Chau used to reach the island the Â“rst time, Pathak said. After the Â“shermen realized Chau had been killed, they left for Port Blair, the capital of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, where they broke the news to ChauÂs friend, who in turn notiÂ“ed his family, Pathak said. Police charged the seven Â“shermen with endangering the life of the American by taking him to a prohibited area. Chau was carrying a Bible that was hit by an arrow when he was Â“rst shot at by the tribesmen on Nov. 15, according to notes Chau left with the Â“shermen that Staver said he has seen. Staver said ChauÂs last notes to his family on Nov. 16 told them that they might think he was crazy but that he felt it was worth it and asked that they not be angry if he was killed. MEXICO CITY (AP) Â„ Mexican immigration agents have detained almost all of the Central American migrants on a fourth caravan that recently entered Mexico seeking to reach the United States. MexicoÂs National Immigration Institute says 213 migrants have been detained. Those found to lack proper documents face repatriation to their home countries. The migrants were detained Wednesday on a highway between the Guatemalan border and the southern Mexican city of Tapachula. They included 186 people from El Salvador, 16 from Guatemala, 10 Honduras and one Nicaraguan. The group set out from El Salvador on Nov. 18 and apparently crossed the river dividing Guatemala and Mexico on Tuesday. Mexico ofÂ“cials have detained smaller groups that split off from the Â“rst three larger caravans of thousands of migrants that entered starting Oct. 19.Mexico detains 213 migrants in 4th caravan
The Sun | Friday, November 23, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3NATIONAL NEWS NEWS FROM AROUND THE NATIONBy KATHLEEN RONAYNEASSOCIATED PRESSCHICO, Calif. Â„ Amy Sheppard packs her belongings into a plastic garbage bag as rain drips around her, readying to move on from a Â“eld by a Walmart where thousands of evacuees had taken refuge from a deadly Northern California wildÂ“re. Sheppard, 38, her sister and niece, who is 1, are looking to move into a dry hotel after camping in the Â“eld for four days. They lost their home in Magalia and the jewelry-maker tears up as she thinks about whatÂs next. ÂThis rain is making it so hard,ÂŽ she said. Rain falling Wednesday in some areas of Northern California could help crews Â“ghting a deadly wildÂ“re. But it could also raise the risk of Â”ash Â”oods, complicate efforts to recover remains and make life even more difÂ“cult for people like Sheppard who have nowhere to go. Heavier rain is expected later in the day in the Paradise burn area, which is about 140 miles north of San Francisco, where the Camp Fire has killed at least 83 people, including two victims who were found Wednesday in burned homes. The blaze also destroyed more than 13,000 homes. ÂThe rain is really a double-edged sword for this Â“re,ÂŽ said Rick Carhart, a spokesman with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. He said searchers have Âbeen able to sift through this really Â“ne ash and when rain gets onto that really Â“ne ash, it turns it into sort of a muddy muck and makes it a lot more difÂ“cult.ÂŽ Farther south, residents of communities charred by a Los Angeles-area Â“re stacked sandbags as they prepared for possible downpours that threaten to unleash runoff from hillsides left barren by Â”ames. Residents were mindful of a disaster that struck less than a year ago when a downpour on a fresh burn scar sent home-smashing debris Â”ows through Montecito, killing 21 people and leaving two missing.Rain hampers life for California wildfire survivorsSearch and rescue teams still searching for remains of people in rubble, ash and mud AP PHOTOSAmy Sheppard packs up items outside her tent in a Walmart parking lot in Chico, Calif., thatÂs been a makeshift campground for people displaced by wildÂ“re. A search and rescue dog searches for human remains at the Camp Fire, in Paradise, Calif. Right-leaning nonprofit paid Whitaker more than $1.2 millionWASHINGTON (AP) Â„ Before joining the Justice Department, acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker earned more than $1.2 million from a right-leaning nonproÂ“t that doesnÂt disclose its donors, according to the nonproÂ“tÂs tax Â“lings. WhitakerÂs earnings represented a sizable chunk of the charityÂs revenue. Financial disclosure forms released Tuesday show Whitaker received $904,000 in income from the Foundation for Accountability & Civic Trust from 2016 through nearly the end of 2017. He also received $15,000 from CNN as a legal commentator, according to the documents released by the Justice Department. The nonproÂ“t group, known as FACT, styles itself as a nonpartisan government watchdog promoting ethics and transparency. The tax-exempt group is supposed to serve the public interest without supporting or opposing speciÂ“c candidates for ofÂ“ce. However, its challenges and its website have focused largely, though not exclusively, on Democrats and their party. Whitaker used his role as president and executive director of FACT in 2016 as a platform to question the ethics of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. From 2014 through 2016, FACT paid out nearly 30 percent of its total revenue to Whitaker. In 2015 alone, WhitakerÂs $252,000 salary made up half of what the group brought in. WhitakerÂs salary also grew each year from $63,000 in 2014 to as much as $502,000 in 2017, according to the tax Â“lings and public Â“nancial disclosures released by the Justice Department. Separately, Whitaker is also facing criticism about whether he violated federal law because a campaign committee set up for his failed 2014 U.S. Senate bid accepted $8,800 in donations this year, while Whitaker was serving as a top Justice Department lawyer. On Wednesday, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., called for an investigation into whether Whitaker violated the Hatch Act, a statute that generally prohibits executive branch employees from accepting or soliciting campaign donations. WhitakerÂs campaign committee, which still carries about $49,000 in debt, hadnÂt received any contributions between 2015 through 2017, according to Federal Election Commission data. The campaign committee, Whitaker for U.S. Senate Inc., also reported paying $500 to WhitakerÂs old law Â“rm, Whitaker, Hagenow & Gustoff, for space rental on Feb. 2. The campaign paid a $228 reimbursement to Christopher Hagenow Â„ an Iowa legislator and founding partner of the law Â“rm Â„ for data services that same day. Several news outlets had requested WhitakerÂs Â“nancial disclosure forms from the Justice Department after President Donald Trump ousted Attorney General Jeff Sessions and elevated Whitaker to the agencyÂs top post on Nov. 7. Those documents show Whitaker began revising his public disclosures the day he was appointed acting attorney general. He revised the forms four more times, including on Tuesday.Border Patrol agent acquitted in Mexican teenÂs 2012 deathPHOENIX (AP) Â„ An Arizona jury on Wednesday acquitted a U.S. Border Patrol agent of manslaughter in the shooting of a Mexican teen through a border fence, another loss for federal prosecutors in the second trial over the 2012 killing. Jurors in Tucson found Lonnie Swartz not guilty of involuntary manslaughter but didnÂt come to a decision on voluntary manslaughter. The verdict comes months after Swartz was acquitted of second-degree murder by another jury that had deadlocked on manslaughter charges, allowing prosecutors to pursue the case again. Border Patrol agents are rarely criminally charged for using force. But the killing of 16-year-old Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez sparked outrage on both sides of the border and came at a time when the agency was increasingly scrutinized for its use of force. Prosecutors said Swartz was frustrated over repeated encounters with people on the Mexico side of the border fence who throw rocks at agents to distract them from smugglers. They say he lost his cool and fatally shot Elena Rodriguez. Swartz Â“red about 16 rounds, and the boy was hit at least 10 times in the back and head.Amazon says error exposed customer names and emailsNEW YORK (AP) Â„ Amazon says a technical error on its website exposed the names and email addresses of some customers. The online retail giant says it has Â“xed the issue and emailed those affected. Amazon says its website and systems were not hacked. An Amazon spokesman did not answer additional questions, like how many people were impacted or whether any of the information was stolen.Man who flew weaponized drones convicted of assaulting copsMIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) Â„ A Connecticut man whose online videos of drones Â“ring guns and shooting Â”ames have been viewed millions of times has been convicted of unrelated charges of assaulting and interfering with police. A Middletown Superior Court jury convicted Austin Haughwout, of Clinton, on Tuesday. Haughwout denied allegations he assaulted two Clinton ofÂ“cers in 2015 and said police harassed him because of his videos. He made headlines in 2014 when he posted a video of himself being assaulted by a woman upset he was Â”ying a drone at a state beach. He posted the weaponized drone videos a year later. Federal authorities investigated but never Â“led charges. Haughwout is facing another trial on charges of enticing minors and child pornography possession, which he denies.Woman in homeless scam suspended from state jobTRENTON, N.J. (AP) Â„ A New Jersey woman charged with scamming GoFundMe donors out of more than $400,000 with a fake story about a homeless veteran has been suspended from her state job. Katelyn McClure was a receptionist within the state Department of Transportation. A DOT spokeswoman conÂ“rmed Wednesday that McClure is on Âsuspension status,ÂŽ but declined to say if it was a paid or unpaid suspension. McClure and her former boyfriend, Mark DÂAmico, are charged with conspiracy and theft by deception. Her lawyer has said she was duped by DÂAmico, while his lawyer has denied such claims. Authorities allege they conspired with Marine vet Johnny Bobbitt to concoct a feel-good story about Bobbitt giving McClure his last $20 when her car ran out of gas. They raised $400,000, which authorities say was spent on luxury items and casino trips.By MICHAEL KUNZELMANASSOCIATED PRESSCOLLEGE PARK, Md. Â„ The company failing to end a 14-year-old oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico can be required to perform more underwater drilling and excavation work to stop the Â”ow of crude, a federal regulatory board has ruled. The Interior Board of Land Appeals refused to excuse Taylor Energy Co. from requirements to permanently plug oil wells that could be the source of the leak. The boardÂs Oct. 30 decision wasnÂt made public until Tuesday. One week before the board ruled, the Coast Guard ordered the New Orleans-based company to design and install a new containment system to capture and remove leaking oil until a permanent solution can be developed. The company faces daily civil penalties of up to $40,000 if it fails to comply with the agencyÂs Oct. 23 order. Federal regulators havenÂt ordered Taylor Energy to resume a long-dormant drilling operation to plug a cluster of wells at the site where a company-owned drilling platform toppled during Hurricane Ivan in 2004. But that remains an option now that the Arlington, Virginiabased appeals board has upheld a May 2015 decision by the Interior DepartmentÂs Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement. The bureau concluded Taylor Energy may need to do more drilling work to end the leak. Government lawyers recently disclosed a new estimate that approximately 10,500 to 29,400 gallons of oil is leaking daily from the site where slicks often stretch for miles off LouisianaÂs coast. ThatÂs much higher than previous government estimates and dwarfs the companyÂs own assessment of the leakÂs volume. Oil has been leaking from the site since waves whipped up by Hurricane Ivan triggered an underwater mudslide that wrecked Taylor EnergyÂs platform. The mudslide also buried a cluster of wells under mounds of treacherous sediment, preventing the company from employing traditional techniques to plug them. Taylor Energy plugged nine wells, leaving 16 unplugged. Federal regulators believe oil and gas is leaking from at least one unplugged well. They have warned that the leak could last a century or longer if left unchecked. The company, however, has insisted there is no evidence any wells are still leaking. It claims residual oil is oozing from sediment on the seaÂ”oor. And, in a court Â“ling several years ago, Taylor Energy said experts concluded in 2014 that the sheens contained an average volume of less than 4 gallons per day.Company can be ordered to drill to end 14-year-old oil leak By ROBERT BURNSAP MILITARY WRITERWASHINGTON Â„ Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Wednesday the White House has given him explicit authority to use military troops to protect Customs and Border Protection personnel, with lethal force if necessary, at the southwest border. This could, under certain circumstances, mean directing troops to temporarily detain migrants in the event of disorder or violence against border patrol agents. ÂThis is minutes Â„ not even hoursÂŽ of potential detention, Mattis said, suggesting that he was not planning to use the military to operate migrant detention camps. ÂWeÂll keep you posted on any new missions and any new numbers of troops as those decisions are made,ÂŽ he said. The mission thus far for the approximately 5,800 active-duty troops in the border area has been mainly to lay barbed wire and other barriers along the border and to transport border patrol personnel. Mattis has stressed the need to keep the military away from civilian law enforcement roles such as arrests, which are forbidden under the Posse Comitatus Act. The law prohibits the federal government from using the armed forces in a domestic police role, except in cases and under circumstances speciÂ“cally authorized by the Constitution or Congress. The basis for the expanded legal authorities for Mattis is a belief by the Trump administration that the caravans of Central American migrants, whose numbers include many families with children, moving toward the U.S. border pose a potential security threat to the border patrol.Mattis says he has extra authority to use military on border JOEL MARTINEZSecretary of Defense Jim Mattis and Homeland Security Secretary Kirsten Nielsen, third from the right, visit Base Camp Donna, in Donna, Texas.

Â„ Mass shootings, hurricanes, Â“res Â„ for many people across the nation, 2018 was a year of loss unlike any other. As the quintessentially American holiday of Thanksgiving approaches, some will abandon traditions or choose not to mark the holiday at all. Others will celebrate new friendships forged in the wake of tragedy. HereÂs how some of the survivors will spend Thanksgiving:PARKLAND, FLORIDA ÂA hard weekÂŽFred Guttenberg will start his Thanksgiving morning at a cemetery. His 14-year-old daughter, Jaime, was one of 17 people killed in the ValentineÂs Day massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. ÂThis Thanksgiving is about loss,ÂŽ said Guttenberg who will visit JaimeÂs grave with his wife, his son and their two dogs. ÂItÂs my Â“rst Thanksgiving without my daughter, and weÂre not going to leave her out of it.ÂŽ After that, the family has no plans to celebrate or eat a turkey dinner. None of their past traditions seems appropriate. Jaime loved the holidays, her dad said. She looked forward to decorating the house and helping her mom with the cooking. ÂThis is going to be a hard week,ÂŽ Guttenberg said in a phone interview. HeÂs been a vocal advocate for stricter gun laws and started Orange Ribbons For Jaime, an organization that raises money for gun reform and for causes that were important to his daughter, including animal welfare and dance scholarships. The grieving father made national headlines when he was one of the Â“rst parents to speak out after the shooting at a candlelight vigil. During his gut-wrenching recap of his last moments with Jaime, he worried whether he had remembered to say ÂI love youÂŽ as she rushed out the door for school. ÂI sent her to school yesterday. She was supposed to be safe. My job is to protect my children,ÂŽ he told the crowd. Now, nine months later, Guttenberg says his family is facing a season of Â“rsts without Jaime, whom he described as the energy in the room. He had a request for families who have not lost any loved ones to gun violence. ÂRemember those who maybe arenÂt there this holiday and be part of the change that needs to happen in this country so it doesnÂt happen to them next.ÂŽPITTSBURGH ÂWe must not forgetÂŽRabbi Jeffrey Myers had just begun Shabbat service at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh when the shooting began. Now, less than three weeks after the deadliest attack on Jews in the United States, he plans to celebrate Thanksgiving and encouraged others to do so too. ÂPeople are looking forward to Thanksgiving because there is a lot to be thankful for,ÂŽ he said. The day of the attack, Oct. 27, Âwill remain a constant wound,ÂŽ Myers said of the shooting that killed 11 people. But in his weekly blog post to his congregants, he wrote: ÂFor me, just being able to sit in the same room with my family is immensely rewarding, something I was not certain I would ever have the opportunity to do again. That is why something so simple is so powerful and meaningful for me.ÂŽ However, that is not enough, Myers said. He urged people to be aware of the less fortunate, those in the community who need food and shelter. And he suggested Âone simple, yet meaningful gestureÂŽ that would make an impact. He asked people to count the number of friends and relatives gathered around their tables at Thanksgiving and donate that sum to charities that feed the hungry. People could also give more, or less. ÂIt is called tzedakah for an excellent reason: The root word, tzedek, means Ârighteousness.Â It is the right thing to do, and you know that. The needs of others did not disappear on Oct. 27. They remained, and we must not forget them.ÂŽ CALIFORNIA Facebook angelsAthenia Dunham and daughter Natalie will spend Thanksgiving at the home of a woman they met less than two weeks ago, surrounded by new friends. Athenia call them Âangels.ÂŽ The Dunhams barely escaped their home in Paradise, California, on Nov. 8 as a deadly wildÂ“re swept through. They were awoken by their pitbull, Luna, and Â”ames were already burning the home next door. They made it out and to a hotel in nearby Redding, paying for the room with money from a homeownerÂs insurance payout. On a normal Thanksgiving, Athenia said, she would be cooking for a few friends and preparing to Âpig out and veg.ÂŽ But this year the holidays are the last thing on her mind. ÂTo be honest, I really donÂt even know what day it is Â„ it feels like this just happened yesterday,ÂŽ she said Tuesday. But an army of super volunteers who connected via Facebook have come together to help give the two women as normal a Thanksgiving as possible. Beyond providing a meal, the volunteers have provided the mother and daughter with clothing, gift cards and a laptop computer so Natalie can keep up with her education. One volunteer even did their laundry. ÂTheyÂre our angels Â„ and angels have been with us since we left our driveway,ÂŽ Athenia said.MEXICO BEACH, FLORIDA Thankful to be aliveThe Rev. Eddie LaFountain of the First Baptist Church in Mexico Beach, Florida, plans to welcome 300 people to the parking lot of his storm-damaged church for Thanksgiving dinner. HeÂs held worship services in the lot since Hurricane Michael destroyed most of the community on Oct. 10. Since that Category 4 storm, the church has become one of the townÂs hubs for supplies, necessities and love. Thanksgiving Day is no different, LaFountain said. ÂWe just felt like we wanted to open it up to everybody thatÂs here. Because some donÂt have ovens, some are here volunteering. AnybodyÂs invited,ÂŽ he said. ÂJust to be thankful that GodÂs given us life.ÂŽ LaFountainÂs other job as a landscaper dried up since the hurricane, as did his wifeÂs job cleaning condos. But he feels blessed that his apartment was unscathed, his children are safe and that he has Â“rsthand evidence of the good in people every day. Just a few days ago, volunteers put a new roof on the church. Inside, the donations of shoes, groceries, clothing and other items are free for the taking. ÂWe can barely walk through the church sometimes,ÂŽ he said. Volunteers from Wild Olive, a Panama City restaurant, are cooking the Thanksgiving meal for the hundreds expected to stop by. ÂWeÂre going to pray with them and love on them,ÂŽ LaFountain said. ÂIf you ever want to experience God, heÂs here.ÂŽTragedy survivors reflect on Thanksgiving after year of loss AP PHOTOJaime Guttenberg was a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

Â„ Hannah Crenshaw hosts a Thanksgiving dinner each year, cooking turkey, stufÂ“ng and mashed potatoes Â„ her favorite Â„ for up to 15 guests at her home in Magalia. ThatÂs not an option this year. Her house burned down in the wildÂ“re that tore through the town of Paradise and surrounding communities, killing at least 83 people and destroying more than 13,000 homes. Instead, the 26-year-old Crenshaw will be spending Thanksgiving with her husbandÂs family in nearby Durham. SheÂs trying to see the best in the heartbreaking situation. ÂIt doesnÂt really feel like Thanksgiving,ÂŽ she said. ÂBut ThanksgivingÂs my favorite holiday. I guess I have a lot to be thankful for this year with everything going on.ÂŽ The Camp Fire has displaced tens of thousands of people, with hundreds still unaccounted for. The blaze was 90 percent contained Thursday, two weeks after it began. It wonÂt be a normal Thanksgiving for any of those families, but businesses and hundreds of volunteers have stepped up to ensure turkey, potatoes and pie are available as a small slice of comfort for anyone who wants a plate. Washington-based nonproÂ“t World Central Kitchen is cooking 15,000 Thanksgiving meals, teaming up with Chico-based Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., the local university and the town of Paradise to serve them Thursday. Volunteers prepared food and set up massive tables Wednesday. ÂIt will be a respite from the frantic activity of trying to put our lives back together and our town back together,ÂŽ Paradise Mayor Jody Jones said. Scores of volunteers also are opening their houses to strangers to provide a more intimate Thanksgiving. Rachael Anderson is hosting a displaced mom and daughter at her home in Redding, about an hour and a half from Paradise. Anderson knows what itÂs like to live in a community devastated by Â”ames Â„ a massive wildÂ“re swept through Redding last summer. She didnÂt lose her home, and she now wants to share it with others in need. SheÂll be joined by Athenia Dunham and her 15-year-old daughter, Natalie. ÂTheyÂve lost their home, their traditions, whatever it is that they do. I just want to give them a little piece of home,ÂŽ Anderson said. ÂThatÂs what ThanksgivingÂs about; itÂs not just about your blood family Â„ itÂs about giving thanks and helping each other.ÂŽ Joann Barr will be at one of the community dinners hosted by the brewery and World Central Kitchen, held on the campus of California State University, Chico. Normally sheÂd cook at home Â„ deviled eggs are her Thanksgiving specialty. She did not lose her house but has been under evacuation orders for days. ÂItÂs sad, but thereÂs plenty of things to be thankful for,ÂŽ she said outside a disaster assistance center at a Chico mall. ÂIÂm thankful for the shelter I was able to go to, now the motel that IÂm in Â„ everything I have, basically.ÂŽ Some people didnÂt even realize Thanksgiving had arrived amid the chaotic and emotionally draining rush of the past two weeks. ÂIs that today?ÂŽ Amy Sheppard asked Wednesday, rushing to pack her belongings in a black trash bag as rain fell over a Walmart parking lot where she and many others had camped for days. Sheppard would normally spend Thanksgiving with three dozen family members and friends at a home in Magalia. That home Â„ a family friendÂs Â„ and her own both burned down. This year, sheÂs likely to spend the holiday in a hotel room with her sister and 1-year-old niece. Sheppard began to cry as she explained her son was staying with other family after the Â“re and that they would likely spend the holiday apart. People like Faun and Danny OÂNeel hope they can provide some relief, even for a few hours, for those who have lost everything. The couple who live in the Sacramento-area city of Folsom are hosting three families Thursday. Faun OÂNeelÂs parents and grandparents lost their homes in a Calaveras County Â“re several years ago, so she said opening her home to others was a Âno-brainer.ÂŽ Thanksgiving at a strangerÂs house may not be what her guests originally expected. But she hopes it can provide some calm in a trying time. ÂA few hours of normalcy,ÂŽ OÂNeel said. ÂWhere they can laugh and enjoy other peoplesÂ company without thinking about what they just lived through and what is in front of them.ÂŽVolunteers prepare hot meals, offer comfort to evacuees for holiday AP PHOTOMichael Reining, left, and Chelsea Meddings, right, chop mint in preparation for a community Thanksgiving meal for survivors of the deadly Camp Fire in Northern California.

The Sun | Friday, November 23, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger YesterdayÂs Challenger Answers DEAR DR ROACH: I started taking betaine hydrochloride for my digestive health. I have had some ongoing issues, and my sister, the wellness guru, has been sharing some things she has learned and suggested this to me. In the rst week I have noticed a dierence. My wonderful partner, who is always skeptical, is wondering if there is true value with this supplement, so we are turning to you for some insight. Â„ J.Y. ANSWER: Betaine hydrochloride has several purported uses. One is to improve athletic performance; however, the data are mixed about whether it is eective at improving muscle strength and endurance. It also is used to relieve symptoms of gastroesophageal reux disease and "functional dyspepsia," a nonspecic term encompassing several types of stomach upset. Betaine temporarily increases acid levels in the stomach. This eect lasts a few hours, at least in one study of volunteers taking acid-suppressing drugs. Because of this, betaine hydrochloride has been used to help absorption of some medications. However, there is no convincing evidence that this helps with symptoms. I am always concerned that an individual person's response could be due to the placebo eect, meaning that the dierence you noted could be due to expecting to nd some benet from taking the supplement. I don't recommend betaine hydrochloride, but if it is helping and is not causing side eects, it is not likely to harm you. DEAR DR. ROACH: I have a question about your recent column on colloidal silver. Are you saying you do not advocate using OTC antimicrobial silver (55 PPM) for topical wound care? Is that what the Food and Drug Administration says is neither safe nor eective for any condition? When I had shingles 15 years ago, I was told to get some silver salve to use. Can't really say if it did anything or not. Â„ E.C. ANSWER: Topical silver is an eective antimicrobial, and even at small doses can improve the eectiveness of other antibiotics. Prescription-strength silver ointments usually are 0.5 to 1 percent, which is 50,000-100,000 parts per million concentration. The eectiveness of 55 ppm silver is doubtful: For a dicult bug like Staphylococcus aureus, the minimum concentration of silver needed to eectively kill bacteria is about 500-1,000 ppm. I'm not sure why you would have been recommended it for shingles, which is a reactivation of the chickenpox virus. The only thought I had was that perhaps your rash got secondarily infected by bacteria, but that should have been treated by a more eective method. An OTC antibiotic like triple antibiotic (neomycin, polymyxin and bacitracin) is a reasonable rst-line treatment for supercial wounds with mild infection. DEAR DR. ROACH: I heard that taking L-lysine when you have shingles helps to relieve the symptoms. What is your opinion regarding this treatment? I take it for three or four days whenever I get fever blisters, and it does help to clear my lips. Â„ J.B. ANSWER: L-lysine, an amino acid, has some eectiveness at reducing recurrences and speeding healing in herpes simplex infection of the mouth or genitals. However, even though varicella-zoster virus is related to herpes simplex, Llysine has not been eective for treatment or prevention of shingles. DEAR ABBY: We received a wedding invitation in the mail today from my husband's nephew. First of all, we are to RSVP by tomorrow. (WHAT?) Here are our options in responding: Gladly attend Regretfully decline Resentfully attend Enthusiastically decline I'll surprise you The invitation also asked which song we'd like "blasted over our awkward small talk." Granted, there is some animosity among the groom's father's siblings, but I think this is rude, sarcastic and inappropriate. I have a sense of humor but do not nd this funny. Am I o the mark? Â„ Insulted Guest In The Midwest DEAR GUEST: Obviously, you and your husband would have preferred a more formal Â„ and possibly more timely Â„ invitation. Considering the sorry state of family relations on the groom's side, the wording may have been an attempt at humor. It may also have been sincere. If you cannot GLADLY attend, rather than fume, send your regrets. DEAR ABBY: I'm a boy in sixth grade. Recently, my best friend has been hitting me. I try to get her to stop. I've done everything I can think of, but she keeps doing it. Today in math class, she pinched me or something Â„ I can't remember Â„ so I did it back. Afterward she beat on me with a ruler. I could really use some of your advice. Â„ Tired Of It DEAR TIRED OF IT: The person you call your best friend isn't acting like one. She may do it to get attention because she has a crush on you, or because she's a bully. Tell her to stop touching you because you don't like it, but do NOT retaliate by hitting her back. If she persists, tell your teacher what she has been doing because it's creating a distraction when you need to be concentrating in class. Dear Heloise: There are a lot of yers who miss their CONNECTING FLIGHT due to a number of reasons. If this should happen, use your cellphone to call customer service of the airline you are using to book the next ight available. You stand a better chance of getting a seat, and it's faster than standing in line. Â„ Carlos in Seattle Dear Heloise: Please tell your readers to get their heating and cooling units cleaned and inspected once a year. We didn't bother with that step for six years, and now we're faced with replacing our unit, which will cost us thousands of dollars. Â„ Jon and Andrea L. in Pittsburgh Dear Heloise: I used to have a habit of "pumping" my mascara wand until my sister told me this just pumps air into the container, thus drying out my mascara.

Beyond the classic stripes of iron bars, cages take on all sorts of material forms; some look like factories, some like dinner tables, nice houses, clean cars, or bottles or mirrors. In what way do you need to get free? TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Why is it taking so long? When do we get there? These questions are completely natural, though unhelpful. With some eort, youÂll calm the restless heart and see, with clarity, the current opportunities. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Today is like an elevator. You get on, knowing the risk, and take it because itÂs time to leave one reality. When this ride is done, the doors open onto another, slightly dierent, reality. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Part of the experience of places is the expectation being carried to the entrance gate. YouÂll be dealing with people who are new to the environment you know so well. YouÂll strongly inuence their reception of it. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You strive to be the best, but Âthe bestÂŽ can be hard to assess. How is it measured? Not in popularity or awards. Those yardsticks can only measure consensus and social agreement, which often has little to do with the best. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You donÂt believe that your win has to come at somebody elseÂs loss, but you should be aware that there are many around who do have this scarcity-minded approach. For best results, steer clear of these types. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The love owing through a relationship is not like it was in the beginning, or yesterday, or earlier this morning. And thatÂs OK. Love will continue to take many forms, all of them enriching in their own way. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You acknowledge people by listening to them, remembering things about them, reecting back to them a version of themselves that represents how theyÂd like to be seen. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). ItÂs so easy to fall in love, or have an aectionate feeling about someone, that the reality of the ongoing work of relationships can come as a surprise. Expect it and be ready to embrace it when it comes. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The great thing about falling behind is, you never know how strong, smart and able you are until youÂre tasked with catching up. Afterward, you no longer think every small setback spells disaster. Recovery is in your nature. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). ThereÂs not one way to work. People at work can be still as the moon or hummingbird quick. The action of work varies. Some stare into space, some sweat or cry. Your work, whatever form it takes, will be deeply respected. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Some vestiges of who you were in your yesteryears might be holding you back. It probably has to do with an old habit or viewpoint. Getting rid of a material representation of the era will provide a magical, metaphorical release. TODAYÂS BIRTHDAY (Nov. 23). You know that youÂre incredibly valuable, and are so secure in that knowledge that you think of yourself less and less often. This is freedom. A new level of optimism emerges. More highlights: the club youÂre invited to, an unforgettable date and the satisfactory resolution of a conict thatÂs aected your family for years. Aquarius and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 24, 3, 7 and 38.

The Tribune-Review reports Kelly Sowatsky had been on the organ transplant waiting list since 2015. Desperate for a new kidney, she attended the teamÂs hockey game in March with a sign telling potential donors to give her a call. The Penguins posted a photo of SowatskyÂs sign on Twitter, which caught the eye of fellow fan Jeff Lynd who lived nearly 300 miles away in Delaware. Lynd told the team he had an instinct he was going to be the one to give her a kidney. The two were a match and they underwent a successful surgery Nov. 6. Sowatsky says both Lynd and the Penguins helped save her life. She nicknamed it ÂSidney the KidneyÂŽ after Penguins captain Sidney Crosby. Hockey fanÂs sign leads to kidney donationBy JOSEPH PISANI and ANNE DÂINNOCENZIOAP RETAIL WRITERSNEW YORK Â„ Retailers will once again offer big deals and early hours to lure shoppers into their stores for the start of the holiday season. But theyÂll also try to get shoppers out of their stores faster than ever by minimizing the thing they hate most: long lines. Walmart, Target and other large retailers are sending workers throughout their stores to check out customers with mobile devices. And at MacyÂs, shoppers can scan and pay for items on their own smartphones. Retailers hope the changes will make in-store shopping less of a hassle. Long lines can irritate shoppers, who may leave the store empty handed and spend their money elsewhere, or go online. Walmart says workers will stand in the busiest sections of stores, ready to swipe customer credit cards when they are ready to pay. To make them easier to Â“nd, workers wear yellow sashes that say, ÂCheck out with me.ÂŽ The worldÂs largest retailer Â“rst tested the service in the spring at more than 350 stores in its lawn and garden centers. It fared well, Walmart says, and expanded the program for the holiday season. Retailers are trying to catch up to technology giants. Apple, for example, has let those buying iPhones, laptops and other gadgets in its stores to pay on mobile devices issued to workers. And Amazon has been rolling out cashier-less convenience stores in San Francisco, Chicago and Seattle. Barbara Kahn, a marketing professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, says shoppers know the technology is out there for faster shopping. ÂThat makes them even more impatient,ÂŽ she says. The true test of their success will be whether retailers can handle the big crowds who are expected to turn out for Black Friday weekend. The day after Thanksgiving is expected to be the busiest shopping day this year, according to retail analytics company ShopperTrak. The Saturday after Thanksgiving also ranks in the top 10. J.C. Penney, which has been offering mobile checkout for years, says it sent an additional 6,000 mobile devices to stores this year so workers can check shoppers out quicker, like when lines get long on Black Friday. Other stores are testing it for the Â“rst time: KohlÂs says iPad-wielding workers will roam 160 of its more than 1,100 stores. MacyÂs, which announced its program in May, says customers need to use its mobile app to scan price tags and pay. After that, they have to go to a mobile checkout express line and show the app to a worker, who then removes security tags from clothing. TargetÂs mobile checkout program, which is being rolled out to all its 1,800 stores, is similar to WalmartÂs. Target says that at its electronics area, where there are usually two cash registers, four workers will be sent with handheld devices to help ring up customers buying TVs, video games and other devices.A holiday miracle?

Farmhand gets 105 years for bombing bossesÂ bedBENTON, La. (AP) Â„ A northwest Louisiana farmhand has been sentenced to 105 years in prison for trying to kill his bosses by putting a bomb in a crawl space under their bed because the husband hadnÂt saved his horse. News outlets report that Bossier Parish Judge Parker Self told 56-year-old Douglas Holley, ÂIÂm going to remove you from normal society.ÂŽ Holley was convicted in August on two counts of attempted Â“rst-degree murder, two counts of making or possessing a bomb and one of aggravated arson.Boy, 11, accused in 2nd high-speed police chaseCLEVELAND (AP) Â„ An 11-year-old Ohio boy accused of leading police on two separate high-speed chases in a year has been placed on house arrest. Cleveland.com reports the Ohio boy denied charges of grand theft, criminal damaging and failing to comply with a police order on Wednesday in Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court. Police in the Cleveland suburb of Brooklyn said the boy sped off in his motherÂs SUV on Nov. 4 after she took away his video game console. He reached speeds of 70 to 90 mph as ofÂ“cers gave chase. The pursuit ended about 30 minutes later when the boy crashed into a parked truck and sustained minor injuries. Authorities say he led police on a 100-mph chase last fall. More than 4 dozen sea turtles killed in Cape Cod cold snapWELLFLEET, Mass. (AP) Â„ Animal rescue volunteers say more than four dozen sea turtles have died of exposure after washing ashore in frigid conditions on Cape Cod. The Cape Cod Times reports that low temperatures and high winds combined to kill most of the 50 turtles that washed up Thursday in Brewster, Orleans and Eastham on the lower part of the peninsula. The Massachusetts Audubon SocietyÂs WellÂ”eet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary says about 350 sea turtles have come ashore since Oct. 22. They include KempÂs ridley turtles, green turtles and loggerhead turtles. Spokeswoman Jenette Kerr says most of the animals being brought to the sanctuary are dead and in some cases literally frozen. Biologists say the turtles are stunned by the cold water in Cape Cod Bay, which shuts down their metabolisms and renders them unable to move.Man killed his newborn after teen gave birthELLWOOD CITY, Pa. (AP) Â„ Authorities say a Pennsylvania man strangled a newborn child delivered by a teenage girl he had sexually assaulted on numerous occasions and hid the babyÂs body in a safe. Lawrence County authorities say 38-year-old Christopher Lee Kennedy, who has no known address, faces numerous counts. He was arrested Wednesday and It wasnÂt known Thursday if heÂs retained an attorney. Authorities say the girl was 15 when she became pregnant with KennedyÂs child. She gave birth in October 2017. Police said Kennedy strangled the baby and put it in a bag, then hid the bag in a safe. The body was found several weeks later after the teen was admitted to the hospital for serious complications related to the birth. Authorities say she initially claimed to have killed the baby, but later told them Kennedy had done it. The girl claimed that a couple months before the child was born, she and Kennedy began devising ways to end the pregnancy. They also allegedly agreed that if she miscarried, she would say that the baby was not his.Leaning Tower of Pisa continues long path towards verticalROME (AP) Â„ The Leaning Tower of Pisa isnÂt leaning so much anymore. After more than two decades of efforts to straighten it, engineers say the famed Tuscan bell tower has recovered four centimeters (1.57 inches) more and is in better structural health than predicted. ANSA news agency quotes a consultant to the international committee monitoring the tilt, Nunziante Squeglia, as saying that while the progressive recovery of tilt is good news, the overall structural health of the tower is more important. The 12th-century tower reopened to the public in 2001 after being closed for more than a decade to let workers reduce its slant. By using hundreds of tons of lead counterweights at the base and extracting soil from under the foundations, engineers initially shaved 17 inches off the lean.Car strikes crowd at China school, killing 5 and hurting 18BEIJING (AP) Â„ A car plowed into a crowd of children outside a primary school in northeastern China on Thursday, killing Â“ve people and injuring 18, a local government spokesman said. The driver was taken into custody after the crash around noon in the coastal city of Huludao in Liaoning province, said the spokesman for Jianchang county in the cityÂs suburbs, who declined to give his name as is standard with Chinese bureaucrats. He described the crash as Âa major trafÂ“c accidentÂŽ and said the cause was under investigation. State broadcaster CCTV reported all Â“ve dead and all but two of the injured were children. Security camera footage showed a line of children crossing the street in front of their school when a car approaches, which then changes lanes and swerves into the crowd of children. It wasnÂt clear if the crash was a deliberate attack or whether the driver was swerving to avoid obstacles in front of him. Wang Mingkuan, a cook at a nearby noodle restaurant, said he was making meals when the crash occurred. ÂI ran out and saw about a dozen children lying on the ground, some of them bleeding, all about 7 or 8 years old. Two or three showed no signs of life,ÂŽ Wang told The Associated Press. Boy looking for hamster dies as car plunges into garageNEWTON, Ga. (AP) Â„ A 12-year-old Georgia boy is dead after a car left a road and smashed into a garage. WSB-TV reports Braden Stevenson died after being hit at his grandmotherÂs home in Covington while looking for his missing hamster with a friend. A driver lost control of a car for reasons that are unclear and pinned the boy against the wall. The friend, Lucas McWilliams, was also severely injured. Cory Stevenson, the boyÂs father, says he was on the phone with the son when the crash happened. Braden Stevenson died a short time later at Piedmont Newton Hospital. The hamster was an early Christmas gift from his grandmother. AP PHOTOA view of the Leaning Tower of Pisa (Torre di Pisa) in Piazza dei Miracoli Square, in Pisa, Italy, Jan. 2, 2012. By MARK SHERMAN and JILL COLVINASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON (AP) Â„ Incensed by a ruling against his migrant asylum policy, President Donald Trump on Thursday demanded Âsome common senseÂŽ from AmericaÂs judges and directed his ire at a liberal-leaning appeals court. He professed respect for Chief Justice John Roberts, with whom he is engaged in a startling public dispute over the independence of the judiciary, yet shrugged off the Republican appointee as someone who Âcan say what he wants.ÂŽ Trump, still seething over MondayÂs decision by a President Barack Obama-nominated judge, began his Thanksgiving Day by asserting on Twitter that courts should defer to his administration and law enforcement on border security because judges Âknow nothing about it and are making our Country unsafe.ÂŽ The president, spending the holiday in Florida, later told reporters that law enforcers and military service members he has sent to the U.S.-Mexico border ÂcanÂt believe the decisions that are being made by these judges.ÂŽ Trump has gone after federal judges before who have ruled against him, but the current dustup is the Â“rst time that Roberts, the leader of the federal judiciary, has offered even a hint of criticism of the president. Roberts issued a strongly worded statement Wednesday defending judicial independence and contradicting TrumpÂs claim that judges are partisans allied with the party of the president who nominated them. It is highly unusual for a president to single out judges for personal criticism, and a chief justiceÂs challenge to a presidentÂs comments is unprecedented in modern times. In challenging a co-equal branch of government, Trump complains that his opponents Â“le lawsuits in courts that are part of the liberal-leaning 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. ThatÂs where an appeal of the recent asylum ruling would normally go. ItÂs not unusual for those challenging a presidentÂs policies to sue in courts they consider likely to back their claims. ÂEverybody Â“les in the 9th Circuit,ÂŽ he said with exaggeration. ÂI think weÂre going to have stop that somehow. The judges are going to have to get together or Congress is going to have to get together and stop it because theyÂre taking advantage of our country.ÂŽ Trump did not elaborate. Conservative groups tended to bring challenges to Obama-era policies in Texas, part of the conservative-leaning 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. ÂI like him and I respect him,ÂŽ Trump said about Roberts, Âbut i think we have to use some common sense. The 9th Circuit, everybody knows that itÂs totally out of control.ÂŽ Trump began the holiday by tweeting that Roberts Âcan say what he wants, but the 9th Circuit is a complete & total disaster.ÂŽ He even raised the topic during his call to service members, saying the 9th Circuit Âhas become a big thorn in our side. ... ItÂs a terrible thing when judges take over your protective services, when they tell you how to protect the border. ItÂs a disgrace.ÂŽTrump demands judicial Âcommon sense,Â shrugs off Roberts NEWS FROM AROUND THE NATION

New Orleans, which comes into the game with a 9-1 record, is considered to be the favorite, but anything goes in rivalry games. See the recap on yoursun.comINDEX | Lottery 2 | NBA 2 | Local Sports 3 | College basketball 4 | Golf 4 | Scoreboard 5 | College football 6 | NFL 7 | Athlete of the Week 8 | Weather 8 By JACOB HOAGSTAFF WRITERLast YearÂs Record: 18-7 Coach: Kip Rhoten (2nd year) Starters Lost: Bryce Cleveland Newcomers: Rondell Adderly (Sr.), Gerald Robinson (So.), Tyris Platt (So.) Port Charlotte playmakers Shemar Fleurissant, Tyler Perry and Brandon Gainey have played together since they were in seventh grade. Now they enter their Â“nal year of high school with eyes bigger than ever before. Only losing one starter from last yearÂs team, the Pirates donÂt expect much to change as they pick up from where they left off Â„ likely still stinging from a loss to Cape Coral on a last-second shot in the district tournament. That loss ended Port CharlotteÂs streak of four straight district titles It was a sour Â“nish to an otherwise successful season. But itÂs now morphed into motivation for a team that looks to be competitive in southwest Florida. ÂYou come up short and it hits you like a ton of bricks,ÂŽ Port Charlotte coach Kip Rhoten said. ÂEvery time we get a little loose or I feel like theyÂre not focused in, I always bring up that last 14 seconds when they had the chance to win it. But IÂm excited, the boys are excited.ÂŽMeet the starting fiveOnly needing to replace one starter, Rhoten knows what he has to an extent. Seniors Alex Romero (PG, 5-foot-9), Fleurissant (F, 6-foot-2), Perry (F, 6-foot-3) and Gainey (F, 6-foot-4) return with the new addition of Rondell Adderly (G, 6-foot-1) to a starting role. The returners are three-year varsity players and bring a heap of experience to the squad. What has Rhoten most excited is having Perry and Fleurissant at full strength to open the season. The duo, both football players, nursed injuries early in the season last year with Perry dealing with a shoulder injury and Fleurissant blowing out an ankle seconds into the preseason classic. Fleurissant was a standout player as a sophomore, but couldnÂt quite regain his explosiveness when he returned last season.A grizzly second unit The origin of the nickname ÂBearÂŽ isnÂt clear, but the play style of 5-foot-9 sophomore guard Logan Rogers is Â“erce By JOE REEDYAP SPORTS WRITERGolf used to have a prominent place on the Thanksgiving weekend calendar with The Skins Game. That made-for-TV event ended in 2008 but Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will have their own high-stakes showdown Friday. After years of discussion, the two will compete in ÂThe MatchÂŽ at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas, a $9 million winner-take-all event that will air on pay-per-view. Many wondered if a Woods vs. Mickelson match was a thing of the past. The two have combined for 123 PGA Tour victories and 19 majors but had struggled in recent years. Talk of a match was revived earlier this year when Mickelson won in Mexico and Woods started to be competitive again before winning at The Tour Championship in September. Mickelson said the original premise was both partnering up with some of the sportÂs younger stars, but television executives and fans have always wanted to see the two go head to head. ÂTo have the opportunity to go head to head and to win is just. itÂs great to win the 9 million. I just donÂt want to lose to him and give him the satisfaction, because the bragging rights are whatÂs going to be even worse than the money,ÂŽ Mickelson said during a press conference Tuesday. Both were part of the U.S. team By LARRY LAGEAP SPORTS WRITERDETROIT Â„ Chase Daniel made the most of his chance to Â“ll in for Mitchell Trubisky, having the best day of his journeyman career. Daniel set career highs with 230 yards passing and two touchdowns to keep the Chicago Bears rolling with a 23-16 win over the Detroit Lions on Thursday. The NFC North-leading Bears (8-3) sealed their Â“fth straight victory with Kyle FullerÂs interception in the end zone with a little more than a minute left. Detroit (4-7) has lost four of Â“ve, plummeting to last place in the division. Chicago broke a 16-16 tie on Eddie JacksonÂs 41-yard pick-6 with six minutes remaining. It was JacksonÂs second consecutive game with an interception returned for a touchdown. ItÂs also the Â“fth career defensive touchdown for the 2017 fourthround pick. ÂThatÂs the type of defense we play here,ÂŽ Jackson said. ÂWe are always thinking about putting points on the board. It is about attacking.ÂŽ The Lions drove to the Bears 11 on the ensuing drive, but couldnÂt score because Matthew StaffordÂs pass to Michael Roberts was picked off by Fuller. FullerÂs interception was the 20th of the season for the Bears. The 32-year-old Daniel made his third career start and his Â“rst in nearly four years, replacing Trubisky, who was out with a shoulder injury. ÂHe knows that offense really well. HeÂs a little bit of a different player obviously, but heÂs still athletic,ÂŽ Lions coach Matt Patricia said. ÂHe can still scramble. HeÂs got a good arm. HeÂs accurate.ÂŽ He Â“nished 27 of 37 for 230 yards and two touchdowns, setting career highs in each category. Daniel had a 10-yard touchdown pass to Taquan Mizzell in the second quarter and a 14-yard pass to Tarik Cohen in the fourth. And unlike Stafford, he didnÂt make any costly mistakes. Stafford was 28 of 38 for 236 yards with two interceptions. Detroit became the Â“rst team to lead Chicago in a month when LeGarrette Blount ran for his Â“rst of two touchdowns early in the second quarter. Blount had 88 yards and the two touchdowns. The Bears, though, were able to come back and go ahead thanks to their defense.By SCHUYLER DIXONAP PRO FOOTBALL WRITERARLINGTON, Texas Â„ Ezekiel Elliott made the $21 donation after his touchdown. Amari Cooper took the freebie following the Â“rst of his two scores. The bonus for the Dallas Cowboys: TheyÂre all the way back in the NFC East race. Cooper had a 90-yard touchdown after celebrating with a free throw following his Â“rst scoring catch, Elliott ran for 121 yards with his TD and the Cowboys pulled even with Washington atop the division with a 31-23 Thanksgiving win over the Redskins on Thursday. The Cowboys (6-5) won their third straight game since the Â“rst home loss, to Tennessee in the Dallas debut of Cooper following a trade dropped them two games under .500. DallasÂ eighth win in nine Thanksgiving games against Washington, and second in three seasons, earned a season split. The Redskins (6-5) lost for the third time in four games in Colt McCoyÂs Â“rst start in four years coming off Alex SmithÂs season-ending leg injury. The former Texas Longhorns star threw three interceptions to offset two touchdown passes. McCoy won his two previous starts at the home of the Cowboys, one for the 2009 Big 12 championship and the other his most recent NFL victory with the Redskins in 2014.

The latest exploration, however, caught the 3-point shooting 7-footer off guard. For the Â“rst time in his two seasons with the Heat, he was held out of the lineup due to ÂCoachÂs DecisionÂŽ in Tuesday nightÂs loss to the Brooklyn Nets at AmericanAirlines Arena. ÂObviously you want to play and you expect to play,ÂŽ Olynyk said Wednesday, the last player to leave the practice court after taking extra shooting. ÂBut Coach has decisions to make and thatÂs the decision he made. You respect it.ÂŽ With the Heat already without sidelined Goran Dragic and Tyler Johnson, players who had factored heavily into this seasonÂs rotation, Spoelstra nonetheless opted for neophyte forwards Derrick Jones Jr. and Duncan Robinson against the Nets. It was part of a rotation remix that had Dwyane Wade back after a seven-game paternity leave and James Johnson making only his second appearance since May hernia surgery. ÂWith Goran out, I wanted to get Justise (Winslow) in the second lineup as a ballhandler and that had a domino effect,ÂŽ Spoelstra said. Olynyk said there was no advance warning, nor did he expect any. ÂBut youÂre not always going to be warned whatÂs going to happen in life or else it wouldnÂt be life,ÂŽ Olynyk said. So he made up for the lost time Â“rst with extra cardio after TuesdayÂs game and then the extra court time Wednesday. ÂYou didnÂt get to play, so you got to get your work in somewhere,ÂŽ he said. ÂYou still got to stay in shape, get a sweat, whether itÂs lifting, riding the bike, conditioning, extra shots, because thereÂs going to be another opportunity. ÂThe season is too long, so youÂve got to be ready when that time comes and when you get called upon and youÂve got to deliver.ÂŽ Guard Wayne Ellington, who found himself with his own unexpected game nights off earlier in the season, said that Olynyk handled the situation professionally, taking his best shots in practice instead of at his coach. ÂYouÂve just got to stay with it mentally. YouÂve got to stay positive,ÂŽ Ellington said. ÂYouÂve got to cheer your teammates on and make sure you come in here and get this work. ÂFor me, that was the therapy, coming in here and getting this work and knowing that obviously the situation is not always about yourself. ItÂll change for you. YouÂve just got to stay with it.ÂŽ Spoelstra made clear from the outset that such a deep roster of relatively equal talents could create such moments. He said he opted for Robinson, who is on a two-way contract, over Olynyk, who is in the second year of a four-year, $50 million deal, because he viewed Robinson as Âmore of a perimeter player.ÂŽ Olynyk said he appreciated SpoelstraÂs position. ÂTop to bottom,ÂŽ he said, Âyou can play any number of 15 to 17 guys, whatever it is. So, itÂs really tough and I donÂt envy Coach SpoÂs position because itÂs not an easy one Â„ trying to Â“gure out rotations and the best Â“t and the best combinations.ÂŽ Spoelstra said he expects Olynyk to be back in the rotation as the Heat move on. ÂThereÂs only 48 minutes at every position, so itÂs not easy,ÂŽ Olynyk acknowledged. ÂThereÂs going to be times where guys are hurt or banged up. But if everybody is healthy, thereÂs going to be guys who are left out. But you still got to be able to contribute something to the team and help the team win in some way, whatever position you have.ÂŽ AUTO RACING3:55 a.m. ESPN2 Â„ Formula One, Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, practice, Abu DhabiCOLLEGE BASKETBALL11:30 a.m. ESPN Â„ TBD, Battle 4 Atlantis, third-place game ESPN2 Â„ TBD, AdcoCare Invitational, semiÂ“nal game 2 p.m. ESPN Â„ TBD, Battle 4 Atlantis, championship game ESPN2 Â„ TBD, Wooden Legacy, semiÂ“nal game 4 p.m. FOX Â„ TBD, Las Vegas Invitational, third-place game 4:30 p.m. ESPN2 Â„ TBD, AdvoCare Invitational, semiÂ“nal game ESPNU Â„ TBD, Wooden Legacy, consolation game 5 p.m. SEC Â„ Kent State at Vanderbilt 6:30 p.m. FOX Â„ TBD, Las Vegas Invitational, championship game 7 p.m. CBSSN Â„ George Mason vs. Cincinnati ESPN2 Â„ TBD, NIT Tip-O, thirdplace game ESPNU Â„ TBD, AdcoCare Invitational, consolation game SEC Â„ Tennessee State at Kentucky 7:30 p.m. SEC Â„ South Alabama at Texas A&M 8 p.m. FS1 Â„ Cleveland State at Ohio State SEC Â„ UT Arlington at Arkansas 9 p.m. ESPN2 Â„ TBD, NIT Tip-O, championship game 9:30 p.m. CBSSN Â„ Baylor vs. Ole Miss ESPNU Â„ TBD, Battle 4 Atlantis, Â“fth-place game 10 p.m. FS1 Â„ TBD, Las Vegas Invitational, third-place game 11:30 p.m. ESPN2 Â„ TBD, Wooden Legacy, semiÂ“nal gameCOLLEGE FOOTBALL12 p.m. ABC Â„ Houston at Memphis CBSSN Â„ Akron at Ohio ESPNU Â„ Bualo at Bowling Green FOX Â„ Nebraska at Iowa FS1 Â„ Texas at Kansas 2:30 p.m. CBS Â„ Arkansas at Missouri 3:30 p.m. ABC Â„ Virginia at Virginia Tech CBSSN Â„ East Carolina at Cincinnati 4 p.m. FS1 Â„ Oregon at Oregon State 4:15 p.m. ESPN Â„ UCF at South Florida 8 p.m. ESPN Â„ Oklahoma at West Virginia 8:30 p.m. FOX Â„ Washington at Washington StateGOLF1 a.m. GOLF Â„ European Tour Golf, Hong Kong Open, second round, Hong Kong GC, Fanling 8 p.m. GOLF Â„ PGA Tour, ISPS Handa World Cup of Golf, third round, Australia 1 a.m. (Saturday) GOLF Â„ European Tour Golf, Hong Kong Open, third round, Hong Kong GC, FanlingNBA BASKETBALL7 p.m. NBATV Â„ Houston at Detroit 10:30 p.m. NBATV Â„ Utah at LA Lakers NHL HOCKEY 1 p.m. NBC Â„ New York at Philadelphia 7:30 p.m. NBCSN Â„ Chicago at Tampa Bay SOCCER 2:30 p.m. FS2 Â„ Bayer Leverkusen vs. VfB StuttgartBenchwarmer not the versatility of choice for HeatÂs Kelly Olynyk NBA: Miami Heat NBABy TIM REYNOLDSAP BASKETBALL WRITERThere was a two-season stretch during which JaVale McGee scored a total of 141 points. He was a target of jokes, wildly misunderstood by many in the NBA, almost an afterthought of sorts whose career seemed to be closer to Â”aming out than taking off. And in those darkest days, McGee kept asking himself the same question. ÂIs it over?ÂŽ The answer now is obvious: No, it wasnÂt over. Fast forward, and it may just be getting started. HeÂs living the life that few in the NBA get to experience. HeÂs teamed up with the best players of this generation Â„ Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, LeBron James. HeÂs won two championships, part of Golden StateÂs back-toback titles over the last two seasons. And now heÂs the starting center for the Los Angeles Lakers, getting a chance to play big minutes and put up numbers for the Â“rst time in nearly a decade. In his 11th season, McGee has basically gotten a basketball rebirth. ÂI played against him in the last two NBA Finals and I wanted him on this team because I know what he brings,ÂŽ said James, who lobbied the Lakers to get McGee. ÂItÂs his energy, his energy level, his ability at the rim and his ability to protect the rim. If you donÂt have that on your team, youÂre not going to have much, man. You need to have people with a high IQ, which heÂs got. ThatÂs why I wanted JaVale to be part of this.ÂŽ McGeeÂs numbers are so much better this season than what theyÂve been. But he cringes at the notion that heÂs gotten better. What the Lakers have given him is a better chance. ThatÂs the difference. And heÂs certainly one of the reasons why theyÂre off to a 10-7 start, winners in six of their last seven games. McGeeÂs per-36-minutes averages over his career have been remarkably similar: Never lower than 13.1 points in a full season, the majority of the time between 15 and 18 points per 36 minutes of play. But the numbers are spiking this year because heÂs actually getting minutes Â„ the Lakers are starting him and playing him about 25 minutes per night, and heÂs responding with averages of 13.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game. HeÂs showing everyone else what James saw in the NBA Finals the past two years. ÂHe could have said get anybody,ÂŽ McGee said. ÂItÂs just a reassuring feeling, a conÂ“dence-builder I guess, knowing that youÂre going into a situation wanted as an option, like youÂre really wanted. ThatÂs pretty dope.ÂŽ Away from the court, McGee is a very diverse person Â„ and very private. He doesnÂt think much of social media, preferring to keep his inner circle very small and very close. He makes music on his computer and is serious about that as a vocation. HeÂs devoted to philanthropy, having built some wells to bring clean water to parts of Uganda. And the irony there is that McGee is a native of Flint, Michigan, a place that has been dealing with a clean-water crisis since 2014 Â„ but his efforts in Uganda are coincidental, since he started that quest before the Flint situation became known. ÂItÂs all such a humbling experience,ÂŽ McGee said. The game has sufÂ“ciently humbled McGee at times as well. In those 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons, when McGee was barely playing because of ongoing issues related to a stress fracture in his left leg, he wondered if his career was coming to a premature end. His physical game was failing, his mental game was in trouble as well, and basketball stopped seeming fun. ÂOf course, I had all those feelings, all those thoughts,ÂŽ McGee said. ÂBut what overshadowed all that was me just not being willing to prepare for the worst. IÂm just going to keep preparing for the best. So I just kept working like I wasnÂt hurting, and it ended up being dealing with pain and the pain going away and then realizing the pain isnÂt even there anymore.ÂŽ His game has taken off since. The funny thing about McGee is that he came into the NBA with the skills that big men now are supposed to have Â„ stretch defenses, make shots from the perimeter, have some guard-esque skills. ThatÂs the player he was at Nevada before getting picked by Washington at the No. 18 spot of the 2008 NBA Draft. But when he entered the NBA, the mandate basically was for a 7-footer like himself to rebound and set screens. In todayÂs NBA, his versatility is almost required for a big. The Lakers rave about all the things fans notice and a lot of more about what might not be so noticable Â„ like his footwork, his speed down the Â”oor, his hands and his cutting. ÂHeÂs been great,ÂŽ Lakers coach Luke Walton said. ÂHeÂs been professional. HeÂs taking care of himself. HeÂs vocal in the locker rooms and the huddles, heÂs been producing for us, obviously his shot-blocking has been a big part of us having some success on defense. WeÂre very pleased with JaVale.ÂŽ Due respect to Walton, heÂll never be McGeeÂs favorite coach. His mom has that title on lock. Pamela McGee won two NCAA titles as a player at USC and an Olympic gold medal at the 1984 Los Angeles Games, was the No. 2 pick in the 1997 WNBA Draft and is in the WomenÂs Basketball Hall of Fame. ÂI used to be Pamela McGee,ÂŽ she said. ÂNow IÂm JaVale McGeeÂs mama.ÂŽ While many lost faith in her oldest child, she never did. The two titles with the Warriors probably meant as much to Pamela McGee as they did to her son. And now sheÂs back in familiar surroundings Â„ Los Angeles, where she played, sitting near the Â”oor to watch Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. She has Â”ashbacks when James and her kid team up to do something spectacular, like those ÂShowtimeÂŽ Lakers did. ÂThereÂs an African proverb that says the teacher will become the student and the student will become the teacher,ÂŽ she said. ÂI think weÂre there. I was a very strict mother, but now, it doesnÂt come from my mouth, it comes from my heart. IÂm just extremely proud. Not too many mothers get this opportunity.ÂŽ There are goals that McGee still has to accomplish in his career. He wants to be an AllStar. He wants to average a double-double. He wants to win a blocked-shot title. HeÂs turning 31 in January, is in great condition and knows he could play several more seasons. And as this season goes along, McGee knows part of his job will be sharing wisdom heÂs collected in his two championship runs with those younger Lakers who donÂt know what the postseason is about yet. ÂWeÂre having a blast,ÂŽ McGee said. ÂAnd when we start Â“guring it out, youÂre going to see a team thatÂs having so much fun.ÂŽJaVale McGee flourishing in opportunity with LeBron, Lakers AP PHOTOIn this Nov. 10, 2018, Â“le photo, Los Angeles Lakers center JaVale McGee dunks over Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield.
The Sun | Friday, November 23, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3 and scrappy. Doubling as the quarterback for the football team, known for his short, punchy runs up the middle, RogersÂ outside shooting gives the PiratesÂ second unit a spark. ÂHeÂs tough,ÂŽ Rhoten said. ÂI donÂt know how you teach that. HeÂs a competitor. HeÂs not gonna come out here to practice and get beat up on. And he makes the little bunch with him grow up together too.ÂŽ The Pirate bench is even smaller than the starters, but have an underdog quality to them. Sophomore point guard Gerald Robinson (5-foot-10) showed his scoring ability in the teamÂs preseason opener against Cardinal Mooney on Monday, scoring nine points off the bench. ÂI feel like weÂre pretty deep,ÂŽ Rhoten said. ÂMy second unit has a lot of umph to it. TheyÂre not the biggest, but they have a lot of competitiveness.ÂŽFast and furious If thereÂs one thing the Pirates lack, itÂs size. Gainey and Perry are the tallest at 6-foot-4 and 6-foot-3 respectively, but the rest of the team lacks height. But what they lack in towering forwards they make up with a bunch of speed and an uptempo offense. They want to get up and down the Â” oor quickly and use their conditioning to slow it down on defense with their full-court press. ÂWeÂre an up and down team,ÂŽ Rhoten said. ÂWe wanna run and run and run some more. We wanna get going as fast as we can. But on the other side, you have to be smart enough to realize some teams will do it better than you. We donÂt have a lot of size, but if you ask the players, we wanna get up 94 feet and get after you.ÂŽSeason outlook ThereÂs a certain expectation and tradition that comes attached to a Pirate jersey. ThereÂs an expectation to win the district, make a run and aim for the Final Four. Some years it works out and others, like last year, teams fall short. But the goal is always the same. Taking a look at the surrounding teams that will cross paths with the Pirates, Charlotte is big, athletic and looks to be a top team in the area. Lehigh, which tops the southwest Florida rankings to start the season, is in the driverÂs seat as of now. The Pirates open the season ranked third, but by the end of the year, they expect to open some eyes. ÂWeÂre feeling real good,ÂŽ Adderly said. ÂWeÂre being underestimated right now. We feel we have a lot to prove.ÂŽ Email Jacob Hoag at Jhoag@sun-herald.com and follow him on Twitter @ByJacobHoag.PIRATESFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTOS BY TIM KERNPort CharlotteÂs Rondell Adderly forces a back court violation against Cardinal Mooney with his great hustle. By JUSTIN RAFFONESUN CORRESPONDENTTwo Bandits teams, led by two dissimilar coaching styles, will be playing for two 2018 Southeast Region Championships in their respective divisions this weekend. On a damp Tuesday night in Port Charlotte, one voice could be heard over all others at Franz Ross ParkÂ„home of the Bandits Pop Warner football team. Jim Krecji is a vocal, hands-on, throwback style, longtime coach, whose voice echoes across three football Â“ elds. Dustin Baca is KrecjiÂs polar opposite. Baca is a young, Â“ rsttime head coach for the Bandits, who sits back and observes as his assistant coaches lead the team through practice. Two different coaches, two different age groups, but one big family with one common goal in mind: win. The family atmosphere starts at the top for the Bandits with President Shea Davis and his wife Shelia. Davis has seen the way everyone in the organization, across Â“ ve different age groups, comes together for each other. The community has helped build that family relationship as well. Case in point: the Charlotte County Fire and EMS just donated a brand new golf cart to the Bandits because theirs was stolen in October. Krecji coaches the Bandits Pee Wee team, who are defending Pop Warner National Champions, and Baca heads the Junior Varsity team, who came up just short of winning the regional championship a year ago. The Pee Wee team will play at 2:30 p.m. on Friday at Celebration High in Kissimmee. The JV team takes the Â“ eld on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. also at Celebration High. If either or both teams win they will advance to the National Pop Warner Super Bowl at The Wide World of Sports in Orlando. ÂWe got to where weÂre at today by the basics,ÂŽ said Krecji. ÂThe fundamentals, weÂre kind of old-school coaching is what it is.ÂŽ Along with Krecji, the Pee Wee team is coached by two other long-time Bandit coaches Rich Salantino and Keith Chenault. As for BacaÂs JV team, he doesnÂt foresee anything getting in the way from them and their title shot this year. ÂTheyÂre ready,ÂŽ said Baca. ÂI havenÂt seen a team out here thatÂs more hungry than they are right now.ÂŽ Baca prides his team on their defense and overall speed and toughness. Davis believes they have the best defense in the area, and the stats may just back that up. BacaÂs team hasnÂt given up a defensive touchdown in the playoffs and have only given up a handful since week four of the regular season. KrecjiÂs team will be down to 16-eligible players for Friday nights game, after one player was rushed for an emergency appendectomy late Monday night. In Pop Warner, a team must have at least 16 players to start a game and 15 to Â“ nish it. That isnÂt something that Krecji or Davis thinks will be an issue for them, however, as they both praised the teams competitive spirit while having their backs in the corner on multiple occasions this season. The message Krecji has for his team going into this weekends game is just to keep the mistakes to a minimum. He believes they will be too tough to beat if they can do that. Baca plans to keep the atmosphere light and fun on Friday night before turning SaturdayÂs gameday into a business affair. ÂThe team theyÂre up against is in the way of them going to Nationals,ÂŽ said Baca. ÂThat was our goal at the beginning of the season, it was Nationals or bust.ÂŽ If both teams, the Bandits are sure to have reason for celebration. If one or both teams falter, however, they know there is a big family in their corner.By CHUCK BALLAROSUN CORRESPONDENTHead Coach: Dale Huffman (3rd year) 2017-18 record: 22-7, District 8A-12 runner-up, Regional semi-finals. Key Losses: C Alexis Francavilla, G-F Aryana Hough, G-F Kristin Powell. Returnees: G Emani Jefferson, G Katelynn Hall (transfer), G Janae Dennard Outlook: ItÂs never easy to lose two 1,000-point scorers from your team the way this team did, with one of them being Player of the Year, especially when they contributed nearly two-thirds of your scoring the way Francavilla and Hough did. Yet it seems as though Huffman will find a way to ease the pain of losing them with his high-tempo offense. Jefferson, a junior, will be one of the best guards in the area for her ability to facilitate offense and scoring, while Katelynn Hall, who transferred down here from Indiana, was already a 1,200-point career scorer who will absolutely be a threat. Janae Dennard is another guard who started last season whose specialty is defense. Huffman said she needs to pick up the scoring following the departure of their stars. It will be figuring out what to do with the rest of them that will be a challenge. Huffman has been scrimmaging and creating situations in practice to see what he has as the season progresses. G Kamryn Nazario, C Destiny Hand and G Brianna Pelton are three seniors also expected to increase their minutes after spending much of their junior seasons on the bench. Jessica Stewart and Yani Hall was expected to get plenty of minutes as freshmen, which will be important with the fast offense they play. ÂWeÂre a run-and-gun team. We take it down the floor. We stress defense and like to keep your score down under 40,ÂŽ Huffman said. ÂThatÂs something we need to work on. This is not rh bobcats of last year. They need to find their own identity.ÂŽ Will this translate to another 22-win season? Will it mean they can get past regional power Gulf Coast, which won the district and eliminated them in regionals? Huffman says maybe. ÂGulf Coast will be hard to beat. They have two D-I players there. Can we win 20 games? Yes. But we need to get better,ÂŽ Huffman said. ÂI think weÂll be okay.ÂŽ TODAY Football regional championshipVenice vs. Bloomingdale, 7:30 p.m. Hayden Wolff and the Venice Indians look to continue their run in the playoffs in the regional championship game against Bloomingdale.

Page 4 SP www.yoursun.com The Sun | Friday, November 23, 2018By JOHN MARSHALLAP BASKETBALL WRITERLAHAINA, Hawaii Â„ Rui Hachimura arrived at Gonzaga as an intriguing prospect who spoke very limited English. He spent his Â“rst season in Spokane acclimating to the new language and culture while watching the Zags reach the national title game. HachimuraÂs role increased as a sophomore, though he was still primarily a backup player on a loaded roster. Given a chance to lead the Zags this season, Hachimura has thrived. The multidimensional 6-foot-8 forward established himself as one of the nationÂs best players early this year and took a star turn at the Maui Invitational, earning tournament MVP while leading Gonzaga past top-ranked Duke in the title game. ÂHe was wanting the ball and when we got him the ball for the most part he was delivering against some high, high level athletes and some damn good defenders around the rim,ÂŽ Gonzaga coach Mark Few said. ÂSo thatÂs a really, really good sign for us.ÂŽ HachimuraÂs aggressiveness is a recent trend. When he arrived on campus, Hachimura was too deferential and passive on the court. Few and his assistants worked with the Japanese big man to be more assertive, and he certainly has been this season. Hachimura leads No. 3 Gonzaga with 22.5 points per game while shooting 59 percent and grabbing 5.8 rebounds per game. He had 23 points in the ZagsÂ Maui Invitational opener against Illinois and 24 in the semiÂ“nals against Arizona. Hachimura was the difference-maker against Duke in the title game, calling for the ball and scoring on post-ups and mid-range jumpers. He had 20 points on 7-of-14 shooting, grabbed seven rebounds and blocked three shots, including two of GonzagaÂs four in the Â“nal 46 seconds to preserve an 89-87 victory over the Blue Devils and GonzagaÂs second Maui title. ÂHachimura gives them a guy that you can go to to get a bucket or get fouled,ÂŽ Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. Born to a Japanese mother and father from the West African nation of Benin, Hachimura grew up playing baseball around his hometown of Toyama, Japan. He later tried track before a friend persuaded him to play basketball. Hachimura caught the attention of coaches at Mesei High School and developed his game at the private boarding school. He continued to improve while he grew and popped up on the radar of U.S. coaches when he scored 25 points against the United States at the 2014 FIBA U17 World Championships in Dubai. Gonzaga assistant coach Tommy Lloyd, who has a knack for Â“nding talented international players, showed video of Hachimura to Few, who saw the talent immediately and persuaded him to join the Zags. After a rough start in Spokane, largely because of the language barrier, Hachimura gradually adjusted to the culture and the more aggressive style of basketball in the United States. Now he could become the Â“rst Japanese-born NBA lottery pick. Long-armed and agile, Hachimura has strength and footwork to score down low, and he has a superb midrange jumper. He created problems for Duke with his midrange jumper and scored the go-ahead basket with 75 seconds left on a power move to the basket. ÂHeÂs made a big jump,ÂŽ Few said. ÂHeÂs being really aggressive. IÂve been on him to own it a little bit more and I think heÂs starting to own it.ÂŽ HachimuraÂs rise in American college basketball has drawn plenty of attention in Japan. When Gonzaga held a media day for Hachimura in May, crews from JapanÂs largest networks followed him around for the day. Hachimura had nearly two dozen people follow and Â“lm him doing everything from eating to studying. He also gave more than two hours of interviews that were broadcast to millions back in Japan. ÂIÂm getting kind of used to the attention,ÂŽ he said at the time. He better. ItÂs only going to ratchet up from here.Hachimura thriving as GonzagaÂs go-to player AP PHOTODuke forward Javin DeLaurier smacks the ball out of the hands of Gonzaga forward Rui Hachimura during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game at the Maui Invitational. FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) Â„ Chris Lykes scored 18 points and Miami embraced the morning tipoff in a dominant 85-49 win over La Salle in the first round of the Wooden Legacy on Thursday. The Hurricanes (4-0), who came in as the highest-scoring team in the tournament, continued to put up big numbers and got to the lane with ease. Five players scored in double figures for Miami. It was a dunk-fest early on as guard Anthony Lawrence dunked for the gameÂs first basket inside two minutes after tipoff. He later had a breakaway dunk, and his teammates were in on the slam-dunk party all game as well. Jared Kimbrough scored 10 points for La Salle (0-5). Besides Miami and LaSalle, the bracketed tournament at Titan Gym on the campus of Cal State Fullerton includes Northwestern, Fresno State, Seton Hall, Grand Canyon, Hawaii and Utah, with games Thursday, Friday and Sunday.NO. 4 VIRGINIA 66, DAYTON 59PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas Â„ DeÂAndre Hunter matched his career high with 23 points to help fourth-ranked Virginia hold off Dayton 66-59 on Thursday in the Battle 4 Atlantis semifinals. Hunter made a 3-pointer with 53.1 seconds left and Virginia protecting a 60-56 lead. It turned out to provide just enough cushion to keep the Cavaliers (5-0) in control and send them into the championship game Friday against No. 25 Wisconsin. Virginia shot 50 percent in the second half. Ty Jerome added 15 points for Virginia, and Kyle Guy had 14. Josh Cunningham led Dayton (4-1) with 15 points. The Flyers shot 55 percent in the second half and stayed within reach every time the Cavaliers threatened to stretch the lead into double figures. Dayton will face Oklahoma on Friday in the third-place game.NO. 25 WISCONSIN 78, OKLAHOMA 58PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas Â„ DÂMitrik Trice set career highs with 25 points and a tournament-record seven 3-pointers to help No. 25 Wisconsin beat Oklahoma 78-58 in ThursdayÂs semiÂ“nals at the Battle 4 Atlantis. Trice started 7 for 7 from behind the arc, the last coming when he pump-faked a defender and stepped to his right to bury the shot for a 66-47 lead with 6:22 left. But he Â“nally missed a 3 less than a minute later to Â“nish at 7 for 8. That was also the Â“rst missed 3 after halftime for the Badgers (5-0), who made 8 of 9 after halftime and 14 of 22 for the game. Wisconsin shot 59 percent in the second half, using a 10-0 run to blow the game open and earn a trip in FridayÂs championship game. Christian James scored 18 points for the Sooners (4-1), who shot 47 percent but couldnÂt slow the BadgersÂ second-half roll.VILLANOVA 83, CANISIUS 56LAKE BUENA VISTA Â„ Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree had 15 points and 13 rebounds as defending national champion Villanova stopped a two-game skid by beating Canisius 83-56 in the AdvoCare Invitational. Phil Booth also scored 15 points for the Wildcats (3-2), who will play the winner of Memphis-Oklahoma State in the semiÂ“nals on Friday. Villanova went from No. 8 to out of the AP Top 25 after losing to Michigan 73-46 in a rematch of last seasonÂs championship game and a 76-68 overtime loss to Furman last week. That marked the Â“rst time Villanova lost back-to-back games since March 2013. VillanovaÂs Mikal Bridges, Jalen Brunson, Donte DiVincenzo and Omari Spellman were all taken in the NBA draft after last yearÂs championship run. Canisius (1-3) got 19 points from Isaiah Reese. Takal Molson, who entered averaging 21.3 points, had 10. The Golden GrifÂ“ns got to within 63-52 with 4 minutes left before Villanova pulled away.Miami rolls over La Salle 85-49 in Wooden Legacy By DENNIS PASSAAP SPORTS WRITERMELBOURNE, Australia Â„ Ian Poulter and Tyrrell Hatton birdied six holes on the back nine to give England a share of the lead with South Korea and Australia after the opening fourballs at the World Cup of Golf. Cameron Smith made a 10-foot birdie putt on the 18th Thursday to ensure he and Australia teammate Marc Leishman were in a tie atop the leaderboard with South KoreaÂs Byeong Hun An and Si Woo Kim, all with 10-under 62s at Metropolitan. Those countries have a one-stroke lead over three teams Â„ Belgium (Thomas Pieters and Thomas Detry), Malaysia (Gavin Green and Ben Leong) and Soren Kjeldsen and Thorbjorn Olesen, who won the title for Denmark by four strokes two years ago at nearby Kingston Heath. India (Anirban Lahiri and Gaganjeet Bhullar) and Ireland (Shane Lowry and Paul Dunne) were tied for seventh after 64s. The U.S. team of Kyle Stanley and Matt Kuchar were in a large group tied for 13th among 28 teams after a 66. On Friday and Sunday, it will be a foursomes (alternate shot), with fourballs again on Saturday. OfÂ“cials moved up tee times for Thursday due to expected storms and showers. But they never came, and when the last group Â“nished, the sun was shining and the wind had dropped off.England, South Korea, Australia tied at World Cup AP PHOTOSMatt Kuchar of the U.S.A. plays from a bunker on the 8th during the Australian Open Golf tournament in Sydney.

Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com The Sun | Friday, November 23, 2018By MITCH STACYAP SPORTS WRITERCOLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Â„ Urban Meyer doesnÂt seem to be having much fun these days. The Ohio State coach is not demonstrably mirthful, of course, at least not when it comes to his job. ÂItÂs not like me to be the Joe Positive guy,ÂŽ he acknowledged the other day. ÂIÂm usually the opposite.ÂŽ But the 54-year-old MeyerÂs sideline demeanor has taken on a decidedly beleaguered stoop this season. The usual shouting and gesticulating, the ripping off of his headset, those are often followed by a hand moving up to the left side of his head because of severe headaches. Just last week, TV cameras captured his pained reactions as his team slogged through a mistake-Â“lled overtime victory over Maryland, adding to the speculation that health problems could lead to his early retirement Â„ something he has repeatedly denied. On the eve of the biggest game of the year, No. 10 Ohio StateÂs showdown with No. 4 Michigan this weekend, it is easy enough to wonder if Meyer is still suffering through one of the more difÂ“cult stretches of his storied career. This season, his seventh in Columbus, was tumultuous bordering on absurd even before the Â“rst game kicked off on Sept. 1. Meyer weathered a scandal involving a now-Â“red assistant coach that led to his suspension for the Â“rst three games and a series of public apologies and explanations. He has had a Â”areup of the arachnoid cyst in his head that causes debilitating headaches, one of which dropped him to a knee during a game on Oct. 6. He lost star defensive end Nick Bosa to an early season-ending injury, and the BuckeyesÂ defense never fully recovered. The problems led to a shocking blowout by unranked Purdue on Oct. 20 that pushed Ohio State to the fringe of the playoff picture. Other injuries have been a plague all year. Just last week, Meyer had to stop preparations for the Maryland game and address another off-the-Â“eld issue, this one involving a report that a former player left the program because of bad treatment. Everyone at the university issued denials, but Meyer had to talk to the team and the media about it while trying to keep it from becoming a distraction. ÂAll that stuff is foolishness,ÂŽ insisted Ryan Day, the co-offensive coordinator who ran the show during MeyerÂs suspension. ÂThis team right here knows what a great person coach Meyer is, and the rest of that stuff weÂre not even focused on. There have been a lot of things that have been said this year, and it hasnÂt bothered this team.ÂŽ It is safe to say that nothing has personally hurt Meyer more in his career than people saying his lax treatment of now-Â“red assistant coach Zach Smith made him culpable in the domestic abuse allegedly suffered by SmithÂs ex-wife. Meyer said he knew about the accusations against Zach Smith Â„ grandson of former Ohio State coach Earle Bruce Â„ but wasnÂt sure they were true and kept Smith on his staff because no criminal charges were Â“led. The university cited that lapse when it suspended Meyer A chronic worrier and control freak, Meyer had lost control of certain things in his world and, by all accounts, that knocked him off-kilter. His wife, Shelley, a psychiatric nurse, pulled the curtain back recently when she responded to a Twitter user who was inquiring about UrbanÂs Âmost difÂ“cult personality trait.ÂŽ Â(I) think he would be ok if I said his Âcontrol/perfectionÂ issues are the most difÂ“cult to deal with Â„ as we know LOGICALLY, a person canÂt control everything, and being perfect is REALLY hard when (you) canÂt control ALL,ÂŽ she wrote. Meyer won two of his three national championships at Florida but retired twice because of stress-related poor health, leading to chatter recently that he might be close again to doing something else. He already has experience as an ESPN broadcaster. HeÂs a grandfather now, and he and Shelley are empty-nesters. He will make $7.6 million this year, with a contract that runs through 2022. There have been reports that the 39-year-old Day Â„ who moved from the press box to the sideline with Meyer this season Â„ is being groomed as the coach-in-waiting, although Ohio State has denied it. Meyer, who acknowledged depression and anxiety issues late in his six-year tenure at Florida, said he is not close to giving it all up. He told reporters recently he plans to be Ohio StateÂs coach for Âas long as I can,ÂŽ without saying exactly what that means. As long as his health will allow it? Until he starts losing? Until heÂs no longer having fun? Winning, of course, makes everything better. Meyer has done a lot of it and is paid handsomely. He is 80-9 at Ohio State. He has beaten Michigan every year heÂs been here and few would be all that surprised if the Buckeyes manage to do it again Saturday at Ohio Stadium. Meyer also insists heÂs Â“ne and is enjoying himself Â„ as long as the Buckeyes win. ÂBelieve it or not,ÂŽ he said, ÂIÂm a halfway fun guy sometimes.ÂŽIs Urban Meyer still having fun coaching Ohio State? AP PHOTOIn this Saturday, Nov. 17, 2018 photo, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer holds his hands to his head before an NCAA football game against Maryland in College Park, Md. Urban Meyer doesnÂt seem to be having much fun these days. By STEVE MEGARGEEAP SPORTS WRITERSoutheastern Conference teams may not bother taking a spin on this yearÂs coaching carousel. While at least one coach has been Â“red already in each of the other Power Five conferences, the SEC doesnÂt have any coach on the brink of being let go heading into the Â“nal weekend of the regular season. Barring a surprise move, 2019 would mark the Â“rst time since 2006 that the SEC begins a season with no new head coaches. ÂItÂs unusual,ÂŽ said former Arkansas and Mississippi coach Houston Nutt, who now works as an analyst for CBS Sports. ÂEveryone ought to be happy and working even a little bit harder since the ax didnÂt fall.ÂŽ The potential lack of coaching movement in the SEC doesnÂt necessarily mean schools are getting more cautious about making changes. After all, Â“ve of the leagueÂs 14 members had new coaches this year. The only SEC coaches who started their current jobs before 2016 are AlabamaÂs Nick Saban, AuburnÂs Gus Malzahn and KentuckyÂs Mark Stoops. Things had to settle down at some point just to give all these new coaches a chance to prove themselves. Various circumstances helped out some coaches whose jobs otherwise might have been in jeopardy. Auburn (7-4, 3-4 SEC) is out of the Top 25 after being ranked as high as seventh this year, but Malzahn is in the Â“rst year of a seven-year, $49 million deal and Â“ring him would be costly. MalzahnÂs buyout after this season would be $32 million. Both athletic director Allen Greene and Auburn President Steven Leath have said Malzahn will be back next season. ÂThereÂs no doubt,ÂŽ Malzahn said last week. ÂIÂll be the coach and weÂll get this thing turned around. ThatÂs what weÂre going to do.ÂŽ Because most SEC positions are viewed as destination jobs, most coaching changes in this league come when someone gets Â“red rather than somebody leaving for a better opportunity. That said, KentuckyÂs emergence this season could cause other Power Five athletic directors to check on the potential availability of Mark Stoops, who owns a 34-39 record in six seasons. A victory over Louisville on Saturday would give Kentucky (8-3, 5-3) its highest regular-season win total since a 10-1 Â“nish in 1977. The WildcatsÂ seventh win this season added another year to the contract extension Stoops signed in March 2017 and makes it now run through June 2024. If Kentucky beats Louisville and also wins its bowl game to Â“nish 10-3, Stoops would get a second year added to his contract extension. ÂMark has done great work steadily building this program as he set out to do when he became our coach six years ago,ÂŽ Kentucky athletic director Mitch Barnhart said via email. ÂOver that time, Kentucky has become home for him and his family and he has forged a great connection with our fans and our state. Considering our conference, our facilities and our fan base, UK is a great place to be and we are excited about what the future holds here.ÂŽ Although KentuckyÂs persistence with Stoops through his early struggles paid off this season, Nutt doesnÂt expect that to cause other SEC teams to become more patient with coaches. Nutt instead believes the likely lack of coaching changes this year virtually assures plenty of moves next season. ÂThatÂs just the way the league is,ÂŽ Nutt said. ÂItÂs so competitive, so hard. Everybody wants to win Â„ and to win yesterday Â„ and everybody canÂt win. So itÂs just a very, very tough deal.ÂŽSEC might decide to sit out this yearÂs coaching carouselBy HANK KURZ Jr.AP SPORTS WRITERThe numbers are somewhat misleading in the ACC this season. Things sound pretty good when considering Clemson is a national title contender, the league has had a record 10 football teams make an appearance in the Top 25 and 12 of its 14 teams could be bowl eligible. But step back and take a more in-depth look at the Atlantic Coast Conference and outside of the Tigers, who are in line to be in the College Football Playoff for the fourth year in a row, itÂs been somewhat of a disappointing football season. Many of the leagueÂs other usually strong teams have struggled. Three of the teams that were ranked Â„ Florida State, Duke and Virginia Â„ held a spot in the Top 25 for just one week, and two that spent the Â“rst half of the season in the poll Â„ Miami and Virginia Tech Â„ now get no votes. Louisville and North Carolina are not bowl eligible this year. Two other traditionally rich ACC football programs are in danger of having a pair of the nationÂs longest bowl streaks come to an end. The Hokies, once ranked as high as No. 12, have some major work to do to extend their bowl streak to 26 years. If Virginia Tech (4-6, 3-4) can upset favored Virginia (7-4, 4-3) on Friday, the Hokies will then play Marshall on Dec. 1 seeking a sixth victory. If Virginia wins, the Marshall game wonÂt be necessary. The Hokies have not been able to reload as they have in the past. They lost three defensive starters to graduation after last season and had three more defensive starters leave early for the NFL. During the offseason, coach Justin Fuente dismissed two more starters Â„ Adonis Alexander and Mook Reynolds Â„ from the team, and Trevon Hill was dismissed early in the season, leaving them exceedingly young. ÂThis is the youngest team I have ever coached,ÂŽ Fuente said after the loss to Miami, their fourth in a row and fourth at home this season. Â... I told the guys that I still believe in them and they are continuing to improve, work hard and have good leadership.ÂŽ Florida State is also looking to pull off an upset to extend its impressive bowl streak. The Seminoles (5-6) have struggled under Â“rst-year coach Willie Taggart and need to beat No. 13 Florida (8-3) on Saturday for their season to end with a bowl game for the 37th year in a row. That streak would rate as the longest in NCAA history, but the NCAA vacated the SeminolesÂ 2006 Emerald Bowl victory over UCLA because of an academic issue that led to more than 30 players being suspended for the Music City Bowl against Kentucky the following season. But the Seminoles still count the game and want the streak to continue. ÂItÂs important to our players,ÂŽ Taggart said. ÂItÂs important to our fan base, itÂs important to the teams that came before us that we keep it going and we talked about it as a team and our guys understand whatÂs at stake. ItÂs important for our seniors to leave here and not be that senior class that didnÂt go to a bowl game.ÂŽ Wake Forest is another underdog looking to become bowl eligible. The Demon Deacons (5-6, 2-5) need a road-win at favored Duke (7-4, 3-4) on Saturday for their sixth win of the year. At the top, Clemson has remained unblemished. The Tigers did have a challenge to their perch when they played at Boston College on Nov. 10, but they knocked BC quarterback Anthony Brown out of the game and won 27-7.Numbers misleading in a down year for the ACC By STEVE MEGARGEEAP SPORTS WRITERRivalry week should help sort out the College Football Playoff picture while Â“nalizing the conference championship game matchups. No. 3 Notre Dame (No. 3 CFP) can pretty much wrap up one of the four playoff spots Saturday by winning at Southern California. No. 4 Michigan (No. 4 CFP) seeks to remain in playoff position Saturday when it visits No. 10 Ohio State (No. 10 CFP), with the winner facing No. 20 Northwestern (No. 19 CFP) next week in the Big Ten championship game. No. 7 Washington State (No. 8) also still harbors playoff hopes as it prepares to host No. 16 Washington (No. 16 CFP) on Friday, with the winner facing No. 18 Utah (No. 17 CFP) in the Pac-12 championship game. The Oklahoma-West Virginia and Texas-Kansas games on Friday will determine the representatives in the Big 12 championship game. If No. 11 Texas (No. 14 CFP) beats Kansas, the Longhorns will face the Oklahoma-West Virginia winner for the Big 12 title. If Kansas upsets Texas, No. 6 Oklahoma (No. 6 CFP) and No. 12 West Virginia (No. 13) would meet for a second straight week in the Big 12 championship game. Here are some other things to know heading into the Â“nal weekend of college footballÂs regular season. BEST GAMEMichigan at Ohio State Michigan has lost to Ohio State each of the last six seasons but heads into this yearÂs game as a four-point favorite. Ohio State (10-1, 7-1 Big Ten) has looked more vulnerable than its record suggests, as the Buckeyes got trounced 49-20 by Purdue last month and eked out a 52-51 overtime victory over Maryland last week. Michigan (10-1, 8-0) has won 10 straight since a season-opening 24-17 loss at Notre Dame. Michigan leads all Football Bowl Subdivision teams in total defense, while Ohio State ranks second in total offense.Rivalry week playing major role in conference races COLLEGE FOOTBALL COLLEGE FOOTBALL COLLEGE FOOTBALL COLLEGE FOOTBALL
The Sun | Friday, November 23, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 7 at the Ryder Cup but have not competed since then. ÂAfter the Ryder Cup I shut it down for about 3-4 weeks and started to basically work on my body and try to get it stronger again,ÂŽ Woods said. ÂI was really looking forward to the break, but IÂm really looking forward to getting back to playing again. I missed competing, and to be able to go against Phil like this gets my juices Â”owing for sure.ÂŽ Mickelson said he has been working on his game the past four weeks and that this is a good way during the offseason to prepare for next year. Many golf fans are used to made-for-TV events that have been genteel affairs. This will be the complete opposite. For starters, this is believed to be golfÂs Â“rst pay-per-view match. This is the Â“rst major event with Warner Media, which was formed after the recent merger between Time Warner and AT&T. Turner Sports and BR Live are producing the event and it is being shown online as well as on DirecTV and AT&T U-Verse and other cable and satellite outlets for $19.95. Ernie Johnson Jr., who has done the PGA Championship for Turner, will be the main announcer but it will feature others including Natalie Gulbis, Charles Barkley and Samuel L. Jackson The broadcast will feature both golfers micÂd up as well as the caddies (Joe LaCava for Woods and Tim Mickelson for his older brother). With it being on pay-per-view, there will be no commercial breaks and plenty of opportunities to hear both golfers try to one up each other with verbal jabs. ÂItÂs like a Tuesday practice round for a signiÂ“cant stake that makes us uncomfortable, but with the same type of banter that weÂre used to that most fans arenÂt privy to,ÂŽ Mickelson said. Woods and Mickelson used to be bitter rivals, but the relationship has improved in recent years as both got to know each other during Ryder Cups. But Darren Clarke, who has competed against both, expects the rivalry to intensify during the match. ÂDifferent people think this is going to be a fun match but both are natural-born winners. At some stage you are going to see it get a bit uncomfortable as both will call out each other,ÂŽ he said. The most intriguing thing is the gambling aspect. The players will set their own odds on shots during different times and fans will be able to bet along with them. Clarke said gambling has been a part of the European Tour for years and it will be interesting to see how it does Friday. Craig Barry, who is TurnerÂs executive vice president and chief content ofÂ“cer, is also interested to see how the side bets work out, especially since more states are approving sports gambling. ÂIt makes you follow along more and engage. It deÂ“nitely does create a deeper and richer narrative,ÂŽ Barry said. DonÂt expect gambling to become a part of TurnerÂs NBA and Champions League coverage, though, since that appears to be a long way off. ÂThis is very different than anything golf has ever done in the past. ThatÂs one of the unique things about it. WeÂre able to showcase our sport in such a different light and all the different technologies weÂre going to be bringing to this event, and doing it differently than any other golÂ“ng event has ever been done. ThatÂs the exciting thing for not only myself and Phil, but I think for all the viewers that are going to watch,ÂŽ Woods said. Woods and Mickelson already have high stakes on the Â“rst hole. Mickelson said he would wager $100,000 that he would birdie the Â“rst hole and Woods doubled it.UNIQUEFROM PAGE 1 By STEVEN WINEAP SPORTS WRITERDAVIE Â„ The subject was playing through pain, and Miami Dolphins running back Frank Gore drew on his extensive experience to share his thoughts with teammate Ryan Tannehill. GoreÂs an ageless model of durability, while Tannehill plans to return from a throwing shoulder injury and start for only the sixth time in the DolphinsÂ past 31 games when they play Sunday at Indianapolis ÂHe knows how much we need him,ÂŽ Gore said. ÂItÂs football, though. Everybody is going to be in pain from here on out. Talking to him when he wasnÂt playing, he wanted to be out there. He knows that heÂs going to be in pain, but you can tell that he wants to play, so thatÂs a plus for us.ÂŽ The 35-year-old Gore will be in the lineup too, which almost goes without saying. HeÂll start his 119th consecutive game, by far the most of any active running back. That includes 48 games with the Colts in 2015-17. They then let Gore go, providing him with a little extra motivation when he faces his former team. Not that he needs any. ÂI want to win,ÂŽ he said. ÂIÂm going to go out there and try to be me.ÂŽ The Colts know heÂll do that, and remember Gore fondly. ÂHeÂs the kind of teammates everyone wants to have,ÂŽ Indy quarterback Andrew Luck said. ÂHe always seemed like he was a step ahead, and IÂd say, ÂHow did you know that?Â And it was always hard for him to explain. He just knew.ÂŽ The Dolphins (5-5) can count Gore as one of the bright spots in a season full of downers. He beat out the more explosive Kenyan Drake for the starting job and leads the team with 528 yards rushing, padding a career total that is the highest among active players and fourth on the all-time list. And this year may not be his swan song. GoreÂs yards per carry average of 4.5 is his best since 2012 with San Francisco. Anyone who has watched him break tackle after tackle this year can believe heÂll be back at 36. ÂI feel like as long as IÂm healthy and blessed and feeling good and know I can still play, IÂm going to play,ÂŽ he said. ÂIÂll evaluate myself at the end, my body, and see if I still want to go out in the offseason and train to get ready for another year. ThatÂs when IÂll make my decision.ÂŽ HeÂs already a rarity at a position not known for longevity. Last week he became the Â“rst player to rush for 500 yards in 14 consecutive seasons, one more than Hall of Famers Walter Payton and Emmitt Smith. The achievement won Gore plaudits from around the NFL Â„ and beyond. ÂFrank is my favorite player of all-time that IÂve ever coached,ÂŽ said former 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, who is now at the University of Michigan. ÂSurpassing Walter Payton and Emmitt Smith is incredible, just incredible.ÂŽ Equally impressed Â„ but not surprised Â„ is Dolphins coach Adam Gase. He was a 49ers assistant in 2008, when Gore ran for 1,036 yards for them. ÂOur guys watch him practice, and itÂs almost like you forget where heÂs at in his career,ÂŽ Gase said. ÂHe treats it like heÂs an undrafted free agent almost. He practices extremely hard. He Â“nishes everything he does. ThereÂs a lot of pride there. Seeing him 10 years ago and then seeing him now, thereÂs just not a lot of differences in how he plays and what he can do.ÂŽ Gore is still chasing a Super Bowl championship ring, and hasnÂt been to the playoffs in Â“ve years. He thought he would get there with the Colts, but injuries to Luck and others sabotaged their chances. ÂIt just didnÂt go the way I planned it, but I had fun,ÂŽ Gore said. ÂThe organization was great. Great people there. We fought.ÂŽ It has been more of the same in GoreÂs native Miami, with his homecoming undermined by a wave of injuries to Tannehill and others. Meanwhile, the old man at running back just keeps showing up for work. Others may be surprised Gore is still going strong, but heÂs not. ÂI know how I train,ÂŽ he said. ÂI know how I go out every day in practice. I know in the offseason how I get myself ready. Competing with guys younger than me at my position, being around them every day, that helps me.ÂŽ And he learned a long time ago how to play through pain.Gore faces former team when Dolphins play ColtsBy MARK LONGAP SPORTS WRITERJACKSONVILLE Â„ Nothing has gone right for the Jacksonville Jaguars since early October. Injuries mounted, losses followed and all the momentum the franchise built during a surprising run in the AFC playoffs last year disappeared. The teamÂs six-game losing streak heading to Buffalo Â„ a rematch from the 2017 postseason Â„ has raised questions about what will happen in the offseason. Spoiler alert: DonÂt expect drastic changes. The Jaguars (3-7) believe the rash of injuries they endured goes well beyond normal, especially since most occurred on the offensive side of the ball, and they would like to keep the core of the team together for a do-over in 2019. It was the Â“rst glimpse into how Coughlin, whoÂs in charge of all football decisions, views the seemingly lost season. Jacksonville played six games without running back and offensive centerpiece Leonard Fournette and lost three left tackles, two tight ends, leading receiver Marqise Lee and dynamic scat back Corey Grant. Many of those guys were placed on injured reserve early in the season. The Jags havenÂt looked the same since. ÂHaving some key guys go down, a good amount of them on the offensive side of the ball, kind of changes things,ÂŽ quarterback Blake Bortles said. ÂYou have to Â“nd a way. ThatÂs going to happen. YouÂre going to lose guys, youÂre going to have guys get hurt. ÂYou have to be able to have guys that can plug in and play and continue to Â“nd ways to win football games. We have struggled doing that. I have no idea what they are thinking or what they are going to do. I know we have six more chances to try and persuade them one way or another.ÂŽ The Â“rst one comes against the Bills (3-7), who were eliminated from the playoffs with a 10-7 loss in Jacksonville in January. Bortles completed 12 of 23 passes for 87 yards and a touchdown in that one. He was clearly off, but he avoided turnovers and scrambled for several key Â“rst late that allowed the Jaguars to milk the clock. Bortles played well the next two weeks and was rewarded with a three-year, $54 million contract in February. HeÂs been the teamÂs biggest disappointment since but the Jaguars are quick to point out all the injuries and inconsistency surrounding him. The offensive line has been a mess, most notably because of injuries to left tackle Cam Robinson, backup Josh Wells, third-teamer Josh Walker, center Brandon Linder and guard A.J. Cann. JacksonvilleÂs receiving corps has done little to help Bortles out. Receiver Keelan Cole is tied for the league lead with seven dropped passes, and third-down running back T.J. Yeldon is close behind with Â“ve. Receivers DJ Chark and Rashad Greene also had outcome-altering miscues late in recent weeks. The once-vaunted defense has been better of late as the team has started to re-establish its physical identity. Nonetheless, there will be changes ahead. Just not a complete makeover. Even Bortles appears safe considering heÂs due to count $21 million against the salary cap in 2019. Cutting him would still cost Jacksonville $16.5 million. ÂInjuries are part of it as drastic as it may be. I am not going to be that guyÂŽ who blames injuries, coach Doug Marrone said. ÂI have to do a better job, like I have said before. I am going to take responsibility for what I have to do, and at the end of the day, I can live with that. ... You are put in a leadership role. You have to take responsibility. It is very easy to look at it and point Â“ngers or say things and make excuses. The best part of being a head coach is the job is so clearly deÂ“ned. More than any other job in an organization. It is deÂ“ned by winning games. ÂWhen you are not, you are not doing your job. When you do, you have done a good job. DonÂt sit there too long and gloat. You have to get on to the next one because you have to keep playing.ÂŽDrastic changes hardly a given for injury-riddled Jaguars NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars NFL: Miami DolphinsBEARS 23, LIONS 16Chicago 0 9 0 14 Â„ 23 Detroit 0 7 6 3 Â„ 16 Second Quarter DetÂ„Blount 4 run (Prater kick), 9:03.

First, Cooper ran away from Quinton Dunbar after the Washington cornerback slipped on a short pass, turning it into a 40-yard TD for a 17-13 lead. Cooper celebrated by mimicking a free throw shooting the football through the goal post. On the 90-yarder, Cooper made the catch just outside the Dallas 30, spun out of the arms of Fabian Moreau and won the race to the pylon against Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, who tried to shove him out of bounds around the 5. It was his longest career catch and the longest completion in Dak PrescottÂs three seasons. McCoy looked as if he hadnÂt started a game in a long time early, throwing into double coverage on his Â“rst play and fumbling while trying to scramble on his third, with the Redskins recovering and punting.COWBOYS 31, REDSKINS 23Washington 0 7 6 10 Â„ 23 Dallas 7 3 14 7 Â„ 31 First Quarter DalÂ„Elliott 16 run (Maher kick), 10:02.

Page 8 SP www.yoursun.com The Sun | Friday, November 23, 2018 LAUREN RAGAZZONESoccerThe Lemon Bay High School girls soccer team has at least one player its thankful for and thatÂs Lauren Ragazzone, who was selected as this weekÂs Sun Preps Female Athlete of the Week. Only a sophomore, Ragazzone lit up the net last week, scoring her first hat trick of the season in a 5-1 win over Charlotte High. ÂItÂs helped our game because we want to play fast. We have new players who want to play that way,ÂŽ Ragazzone said. ÂWeÂre expecting really big things this year. We work so well together so itÂs easy to get the ball in the net.ÂŽ Ragazzone got her first two goals, which helped the Lady Mantas take a comfortable lead, but her final goal came in the final minutes to seal the game. North Port soccer player Camilo Arango has one individual goal this season: break the schoolÂs single season record of 28 goals in a season. After a monster start to the season, heÂs nearly a third of the way there. Arango, a senior, was selected as this weekÂs Sun Preps Male Athlete of the Week after scoring six goals in three games last week to open the season. ÂCamilo has been a leader for us on and off the Â“ eld this year,ÂŽ North Port coach Joey Sorbino said. ÂHe came in saying that this was gonna be his year, and heÂs proving that every time he steps on the Â“ eld.ÂŽ Arrango scored two goals in the season opener against Port Charlotte High, another four came in a 6-0 win over Lemon Bay and his other two came in a 4-0 win over Bishop Verot on Monday.CAMILO ARANGOSoccer TODAY / TONIGHTSunny to partly cloudy Increasing cloudinessHIGH 80 LOW 615% chance of rain 10% chance of rainThunderstorm79 / 6665% chance of rain SATURDAY GULF WATER TEMPERATUREBeautiful with more clouds than sun82 / 6815% chance of rain SUNDAYPartly sunny, a shower in the afternoon81 / 5445% chance of rain MONDAYChance for a couple of showers70 / 5130% chance of rain WEDNESDAYMostly cloudy and cooler; a p.m. shower69 / 5450% chance of rain TUESDAY 1 3 4 3 1 0 Trees Grass Weeds Moldsabsentlowmoderatehighvery highabsent absent 050100150200300500 400-50 Good; 51-100 Moderate; 101-150 Unhealthy for sensitive groups; 151-200 Unhealthy; 201-300 Very Unhealthy; 301-500 HazardousSource : scgov.net 8 a.m. 10 a.m. Noon 2 p.m. 4 p.m. 6 p.m.The higher the AccuWeather.com UV IndexÂ’ number, the greater the need for eye and skin protection. 0-2 Low; 3-5 Moderate; 6-7 High; 8-10 Very High; 11+ Extreme.RealFeel Temperature is the exclusive AccuWeather. com composite of effective temperature based on eight weather factors.UV Index and RealFeel Temperature TodayPrecipitation (in inches)Precipitation (in inches)Precipitation (in inches)Temperatures Temperatures TemperaturesSource : National Allergy Bureau CONDITIONS TODAY AIR QUALITY INDEX POLLEN INDEX WEATHER HISTORY WEATHER TRIVIAÂ’ PORT CHARLOTTE SEBRING VENICE647380827871Air Quality Index readings as of ThursdayMain pollutant: OzonePunta Gorda through 2 p.m. Thursday Sebring through 2 p.m. Thursday Venice through 2 p.m. Thursday24 hours through 2 p.m. Thu. 0.00ÂŽ Month to date 1.91ÂŽ Normal month to date 1.45ÂŽ Year to date 60.79ÂŽ Normal year to date 48.41ÂŽ Record 1.01ÂŽ (2015) 24 hours through 2 p.m. Thu. 0.00ÂŽ 24 hours through 2 p.m. Thu. 0.00ÂŽ Month to date 0.57ÂŽ Normal month to date 1.34ÂŽ Year to date 40.90ÂŽ Normal year to date 47.68ÂŽ Record 1.01ÂŽ (1984) High/Low 73/57 Normal High/Low 80/58 Record High 88 (1973) Record Low 38 (2016) High/Low 72/59 High/Low 73/59 Normal High/Low 78/58 Record High 89 (2011) Record Low 38 (1981)Pollen Index readings as of Thursday MONTHLY RAINFALLMonth 2018 2017 Avg.

The Tomatoes, a group of women originally from New Jersey who now reside in Charlotte County, are holding their third annual holiday toy drive for those kids. The drive ends Dec. 7. ÂA lot of these people donÂt have money for Christmas presents for their kids,ÂŽ Marjorie Benson, a member of the group, said of the folks who are under care of Charlotte Behavioral, a mental health facility in Punta Gorda. Benson, the owner of Friendly Floors, is on the board of the Fred Lang Foundation, which donates funds to the nonproÂ“ t to underwrite services for low-income Charlotte County residents. ItÂs the kids of those residents who fail to register on radars of even some other philanthropic efforts that target the needy at Christmastime. ÂWe thought it was a nice opportunity for Fresh Jersey Tomatoes to focus on CBHC,ÂŽ Benson said. ÂThatÂs what weÂve done. ÂWe wanted to give back to the community, and we had a need because they were not being served by other toy drives. So, weÂre taking care of it. ItÂs a great Â“ t.ÂŽ The TomatoesÂ drive focuses on children from infants to age 18. ThereÂs an acute need among children ages 13 to 18, the forgotten among the overlooked. ÂItÂs easy for people to pick up things for the little ones,ÂŽ said Nan Leonard, Tomatoes, founder. ÂThe teenagers are a little harder to shop for.ÂŽ Folks can drop off new, unwrapped toys for boys and girls at any one of several locations where holiday wrapped boxes are located. After the drive ends, the gifts will be dropped off at Charlotte Behavioral. ÂThe toy drive is being held in response to the urgent need of our struggling families,ÂŽ Kelly Pomerville, CBHC director of marketing, said in a news release.

Did you know that American Express founded Small Business Saturday in 2010? It gives small businesses and brick-and-mortar stores across the country a boost and a way to get shoppersÂ attention between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. So what are the benefits of shopping at small businesses on Saturday? Your tax dollars stay local; small businesses have more unique products to offer; small businesses give back to the community and help create jobs in the community. Punta Gorda offers many small, local businesses as well as locally owned restaurants and bars. And donÂt forget the many resale stores where bargains can be an everyday find. So make a plan for this Saturday. Draw a map, make a point to stop at as many local small businesses as you can. Bring cash, bring your credit card and donÂt forget your Christmas list. DonÂt forget that Tuesday, Nov. 27, is #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. This is a day dedicated to giving Â„ when charities, families, businesses, community centers, students, retailers and more will all come together to celebrate giving and encourage more, better and smarter giving. There are many local charities participating in #GivingTuesday and they need your help. Remember the charities need you more than ever during the holiday season. So whether it is Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday or #GivingTuesday, have a great week and see you here next time.

Contact her at email@example.com.City designation nearing realityFor months, Arthur G. Vargo of Punta Gorda has been trying to convince city ofÂ“ cials, businesses and the general public about something major for Punta Gorda. Vargo is convinced that the city needs a designation that no tourist will miss while zipping through Punta Gorda on the way to larger communities of Fort Myers and Naples. Vargo has maintained that the City of Punta Gorda goes unnoticed by the majority of travelers. He has advocated placing a ÂWelcome to Punta GordaÂŽ sign where everyone will see it. VargoÂs efforts have been successful. In the near future motorists crossing the Gilchrist Bridge can expect to be greeted with a 26-foot-high green sign welcoming them to the city. The sign will be seen by thousands of tourists and others crossing the bridge. They Âat lastÂŽ will know where Punta Gorda is. Vargo has been raising funds. First National Bank, Holiday Inn and Mayor Charles Phipps have all made monetary donations. The welcome mat at the cityÂs northern point is almost reality. Now Vargo has set his sights on the south and east ends of Punta Gorda.Up, up and awayThe extension of a runway at the Charlotte County Airport should be endorsed by the county commission Tuesday after a public hearing on the issue. The proposed extension would enlarge a 5,000-foot runway by about one-third. It is needed as the airport seeks to serve a larger and more sophisticated community. Approval by the Charlotte County Commission would help secure a substantial grant from the federal government to cover the project. The estimated cost of the runway extension is $340,000, a total of 90 percent. If Charlotte County is to keep pace with its more developed neighbors Lee and Sarasota counties, Charlotte must add improvements. The Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce took afÂ“ rmative action after the runway project suffered its setback. The ChamberÂs pro-runway stand was sounded clear. The longer runway deserves the backing of the Charlotte County residents for TuesdayÂs vote.Yule shoppersMany of the Christmas shoppers answered the traditional call of ÂDay after ThanksgivingÂŽ gift-picking.
