The undercover officer, Garrett Hull, was in critical condition at a hospital, Fort Worth police Chief Joel Fitzgerald said at a news conference. The suspect who was killed, Dacion Steptoe, was the one who shot Hull after Steptoe and two accomplices left a bar they had just robbed, the chief said. The two other suspects were arrested and none of the 10 people who were in the bar were hurt.SAN FRANCISCOGov. Moonbeam says Calif. to launch climate satelliteCalifornia Gov. Jerry Brown said Friday that the state plans to launch its own damn sat-elliteŽ into orbit to battle climate change. The man the late Chicago columnist Mike Royko famously dubbed Gov. MoonbeamŽ made the announcement at the conclusion of a two-day climate summit he organized in San Francisco. Brown said state officials will work with the San Fran-cisco-based company Planet Labs to develop a satellite to track climate-change causing pollutants. Brown said the earth-imaging company has launched 150 satellites.With science still under attack and the climate threat growing, were launching our own damn satellite,Ž he said.LOS ANGELESDrug kingpin busted in massive smuggling operationA Colombian drug kingpin who participated in a violent ring that used planes, speed-boats and submarines to smuggle hundreds of millions of dollars in cocaine faced fed-eral trafficking charges Friday in a Los Angeles courtroom, prosecutors said. Victor Hugo Cuellar-Silva is among nearly four dozen defendants charged in a vast conspiracy to ship tons of cocaine from South America through Mexico to the U.S. Cuellar-Silva, who was extradited Thursday from Colombia, was a high-ranking member of the drug ring headed by Mexican fugitive Angel Humberto ChavezGastelum, who is one of the most-wanted drug traffickers in the world, prosecutors said.The Associated PressBy Bob SalsbergThe Associated PressLAWRENCE, Mass. „ Investigators worked Friday to pinpoint the cause of a series of fiery natural gas explosions that killed a teen driver in his car just hours after he got his license, injured at least 25 others and left dozens of homes in smolder-ing ruins.Authorities said an estimated 8,000 people were displaced at the height of Thursdays post-explosion chaos in three towns north of Boston rocked by the disaster. Most were still waiting, shaken and exhausted, to be allowed to return to their homes.Gov. Charlie Baker said Friday that hundreds of gas technicians were being deployed throughout the night and into Saturday to make sure each home is safe to enter.Even after residents return and their electricity is restored, gas service wont be turned on until technicians can inspect every connection in each home „ a process that could take weeks.This remains a tremen-dous inconvenience for many people,Ž Baker said. Its essential for the crews to get this right.ŽThe National Transporta-tion Safety Board sent a team to help investigate the blasts in a state where some of the aging gas pipeline system dates to the 1860s.The rapid-fire series of gas explosions that one official described as ArmageddonŽ ignited fires in 60 to 80 homes in the working-class towns of Lawrence, Andover and North Andover, forcing entire neighborhoods to evacuate as crews scrambled to fight the flames and shut off the gas and electricity.Gas and electricity remained shut down Friday in most of the area, and entire neighborhoods were eerily deserted.Authorities said Leonel Rondon, 18, of Lawrence, died after a chimney toppled by an exploding house crashed into his car. He was rushed to a Boston hospital and pronounced dead Thursday evening.Rondon, a musician who went by the name DJ Blaze, had just gotten his drivers license hours earlier, grieving friends and relatives told The Boston Globe. Its crazy how this happened,Ž said a friend, Cassandra Carrion.The state Registry of Motor Vehicles said Rondon had been issued his drivers license only hours earlier Thursday.Massachusetts State Police urged all residents with homes serviced by Columbia Gas in the three communities to evacuate, snarling traffic and causing widespread confusion as residents and local offi-cials struggled to understand what was happening. Some 400 people spent the night in shelters, and school was can-celed Friday as families waited to return to their homes.Gov. Charlie Baker said state and local authorities were investigating but it could take days or weeks before they turn up answers. He declared a state of emergency for the affected area so the state could take over recovery efforts.Baker authorized the utility Eversource to take management control over the effort to restore services.The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency blamed the fires on gas lines that had become over-pres-surized but said investigators were still examining what happened.Capturing the mounting sense of frustration, Demo-cratic U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton tweeted that he had called the utilitys president several times with no response. Everyone wants answers. And we deserve them,Ž Moulton said.Columbia Gas President Steve Bryant wouldnt com-ment on the suspected cause of the blasts, deflecting ques-tions about his companys response but saying it had substantive, lengthy conver-sationsŽ with the authorities.The Massachusetts gas pipeline system is among the oldest in the country, as much as 157 years old in some places, according to the Conservation Law Foundation, an environ-mental advocacy group.Columbia Gas had announced earlier Thursday that it would be upgrading gas lines in neighborhoods across the state, including the area where the explosions happened. It was not clear whether work was happening there Thursday, and a spokeswoman did not return calls seeking comment.U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Edward Markey said they are calling on the Senates Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee to hold a hearing to determine what went wrong and how to make sure it doesnt happen again.At least one story of hero-ism emerged from the ashes: that of Lawrence police officer Ivan Soto. His house burned nearly to the ground, but after rushing home to check on his family and warn his neighbors to evacuate, he went back on patrol.He actually stayed on duty even though his house was burning downŽ neigh-bor Christel Nazario told The Associated Press. I dont know how he did it.ŽThe three communities house more than 146,000 residents about 26 miles (40 kilometers) north of Boston, near the New Hampshire border. Lawrence, the largest, is a majority Latino city with a population of about 80,000.Lawrence Mayor Dan Rivera reassured immigrants who might not be living in his city legally that they had nothing to fear.Do not be afraid. Stay in the light. We will support you and your family,Ž Rivera said at a news conference Friday, speaking in English and Spanish. Lawrence is one community.ŽAuthorities said all of the fires had been extinguished overnight and the situation was stabilizing. But Rivera criticized the gas utility for poor communications and accused the company of hiding from the problem.ŽOn Thursday, Andover Fire Chief Michael Mansfield described the unfolding scene as Armageddon.ŽThere were billows of smoke coming from Lawrence behind me. I could see pillars of smoke in front of me from the town of Andover,Ž he told reporters.Aerial footage of the area showed some homes that appeared to be torn apart by the blasts. Brenda Charest stood anx-iously on her front porch while a crew checked her undamaged home before giving her the all-clear to return Friday. On Thursday, she had come home to a hissing sound in her basement and a strong odor of natural gas.We took off. I said, Pack up, were out of here,Ž said Charest, who went with her 93-year old father and cat to a relatives home. It was scary. We didnt know anything.ŽColumbia Gas was fined $100,000 by the state for a variety of safety violations since 2010, including $35,000 in 2016 for failing to follow company and pipeline safety regulations when responding to an outage and repairing a leak in Taunton.The company was sued in 2014 after a strip club was destroyed in a natural gas explosion in Springfield, Mas-sachusetts, after a Columbia employee accidentally punctured a gas line while probing for a leak. The November 2012 blast leveled the Scores Gentlemans Club, injuring about 20 people and damag-ing dozens of other buildings. The club owner and the gas company eventually settled the case.Gas explosions have claimed lives and destroyed property around the U.S. in recent years.In 2016, a buildup of natural gas triggered an explosion and fire that killed seven people in apartments in Silver Spring, Maryland.In 2014, a gas explosion in New York Citys East Harlem neighborhood killed eight people and injured about 50. Consolidated Edison later agreed to pay $153 million to settle charges after the states Public Service Commission found it had violated state safety regulations. A gas leak had been reported before that blast.A 2011 natural gas explosion killed five people in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and that states largest gas utility was fined by regulators, who called the companys safety record downright alarming.ŽState, feds hunt for gas blasts causeThe house owned by Lawrence police of“ cer Ivan Soto sits nearly burned to the ground Friday in Lawrence, Mass. It was one of multiple houses that went up in ” ames on Thursday afternoon after gas explosions and “ res triggered by a problem with a gas line that feeds homes in several communities north of Boston.

The 17-year-old who authorities say stole the weapon was arrested after posting an Instagram video of himself dancing while holding the rifle in the air. Investigators recovered the rifle and other items stolen from Palm Beach County Sheriff's Deputy Heri-berto Santiago's car on Aug. 14. Now, the SunSentinel reported investigators have recommended that Santiago should get a written repri-mand for violating department policy.

CAPE CANAVERAL Japanese supply run to space station delayed again A Japanese supply run to the International Space Station has been delayed again. The countdown was halted Saturday local time in Japan, with only a few hours remain-ing before liftoff. Earlier in the week, a typhoon delayed the launch. A reason for the latest post-ponement was not immediately given. No new date has been set. The cargo ship „ the seventh to be launched by Japan „ con-tains new batteries needed for a pair of NASA spacewalks. NASA said the delay will cause the spacewalks „ which had been scheduled over the next two weeks „ to slip even further. The lithium-ion batteries will replace aging nickel-hydrogen batteries in the space station's solar-gen-erating electrical system.

The agency also said a series of four application work-shops will be held this month for growers.Thanks to the hard work of so many, this muchneeded piece of disaster assistance is finally on the way and will go a long way to help Florida's citrus industry rebuild,Ž Agriculture Com-missioner Adam Putnam said in a prepared statement.Gov.

But state Emergency Manage-ment Director Wes Maul said his agency has significantly expedited this processŽ as the goal is to get this money into the hands of the many citrus farmers who suffered fol-lowing Hurricane Irmas devastating impacts.ŽThey are critical to the recovery of Floridas iconic industry, and we will continue to work with our state and federal part-ners to make this happen as quickly as possible,Ž Maul said in a statement released by his agency.About $129 million of the block-grant money is directed toward new trees, grove rehabilitation and irrigation-system repairs and replacements.Another $182 million is directed toward future economic losses for grow-ers who lost at least 40 percent of their crop production from Irma.An estimated $29 million, subject to availability, will go to help growers meet cropinsurance purchase requirements for the 2022 and 2023 seasons.The first crop estimate for the 2018-2019 season will be made by the U.S. Department of Agricul-ture in just under a month.In the 2017-2018 grow-ing season, which ended in July, the state pro-duced 34.7 percent fewer oranges and half the number of grapefruits compared to a year earlier.Growers have battled for years with deadly citrus greening disease. But just as they thought they were making headway against the disease, the industry got smashed by the hurricane.For the season, growers saw overall production at its lowest „ 49.58 mil-lion 90-pound boxes, the industry standard „ since the 1941-1942 growing season.Grapefruit production, 3.88 million boxes, hit its lowest output since 1920.

More than 60 people had to be rescued in another town as a cinderblock motel col-lapsed at the height of the storms fury.Florence flattened trees, crumbled roads and the assault wasnt anywhere close to being over, with the siege in the Carolinas expected to last all week-end. The storm knocked out power to more than 890,000 homes and businesses, according to, which tracks the U.S. electrical grid.North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper called Flor-ence an uninvited bruteŽ that could wipe out entire communities as it grinds across the state.The fact is this storm is deadly and we know we are days away from an ending,Ž Cooper said. Parts of North Carolina had seen storm surges „ the bulge of seawater pushed ashore by the hur-ricane „ as high as 10 feet, he said.A mother and baby were killed when a tree fell on a house, according to a tweet from Wilmington police. Also, a 77-yearold man was apparently knocked down by the wind and died after going out to check on his hunting dogs, Lenoir County authorities said, and the governors office said a man was elec-trocuted while trying to connect extension cords in the rain.Shaken after seeing waves crashing on the Neuse River just outside his house in New Bern, restaurant owner and hurricane veteran Tom Ballance wished he had evacuated.I feel like the dumbest human being who ever walked the face of the earth,Ž he said.After reaching a terrifying Category 4 peak of 140 mph earlier in the week, Florence made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane at 7:15 a.m. at Wrightsville Beach, a few miles east of Wilmington and not far from the South Carolina line. It came ashore along a mostly boarded-up, emptied-out stretch of coastline.By Friday evening, Flor-ence was downgraded to a tropical storm, its winds weakened to 70 mph as it moved forward at 3 mph about 15 miles north of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.But it was clear that this was really about the water, not the wind. Sev-eral places already had more than 16 inches of rain, and Oriental, North Carolina got more than 20 inches in just a few hours.funded with a $1.2 million federal SAFER grant.Griner said better response times will also improve the fire department ISO insurance rating, which stands at a 3.Griner said the goal is to bring it down to a 1, which would then qualify the department for full state accreditation.City Manager Robin Hayes said the three stations will take care of the citys current needs but does not take into account projected growth in the Wolf Branch Innovation District or any other future development.If there is a need for another fire station in that area, fire impact fees should pay for that growth, not the fire assessment fees,Ž Hayes said.Tillett said although she agrees with improving the ISO rating and decreasing response times, she does not quite agree with the assess-ment process or means.Were going from $50 a year to $219 a year? That is a huge burden on quite a few of my constituents and about a third of the homesteaded properties in Mount Dora as a whole,Ž Tillett said. I just think we sort of need to stop, get some better costs, think about doing this as part of an ad valorem fee, which is a much fairer distribution of costs proportionately, or Ive been looking at Brevard County who does theirs by square footage, even for residentialƒŽI just think that imposing the same flat fee on every property owner, to me, seems like a regressive tax,Ž she said.Councilman Marc Crail, who made the motion to approve the assessment fee, said he wants to ensure that firefighters are working under the best conditions possible and that citizens receive quick emergency responses.He believes having stations in three strategic stations will achieve that. I think its time for us to put up or shut up. Lets be leaders. Every conceivable question has been asked and answered. Interest rates are at near record lows,Ž Crail said. If we delay, rising construction costs of steel, block, work-ers and everything else will only make this project more expensive.ŽI think the needs are clear and the time is now. We need to do this,Ž Crail said.Vice Mayor Cathy Hoescht said she believes that $219 in a small price to pay for the safety of citizens and firefighters, and Councilman Harmon Massey said quick response timesin emergency situationsare crucial.I dont know how we would face members of the public who lost a loved one because we were delayed in response because of various things,Ž Massey said. FEEFrom Page A1€A $100 million increase in the safe schoolsŽ initiative, boosting total funding to $262 million. The funding allows districts to hire sworn law enforcement officers to protect school campuses.€$67.5 million for the Coach Aaron Feis Guardian program, which provides funding for the screening and training of armed civil-ian safety employees, under the supervision of the local sheriff, for the schools. Lawmakers earmarked the same amount for the guard-ian program in the current years budget. €A $51 million increase in a grant program that allows districts to improve the physical safety of schools, for a total of $150 million in the next academic year.€A $10 million increase in a program that allows dis-tricts to establish or expand school-based mental-health programs, for a total of $79 million.The budget proposal is part of a lengthy process that will culminate early next May, when the 2019 Legislature passes a new state budget, which takes effect July 1. There is more uncertainty this year as Tallahassee prepares for new legislative leaders in November and a new gov-ernor in January.But the budget proposal, which was approved by the Board of Education at a meeting in Naples, drew support from education advocates.We appreciate the many concerns that you addressed,Ž Kamela Patton, superintendent of schools for Collier County, told the board on behalf of the Flor-ida Association of District School Superintendents.Patton praised the increases for school-safety initiatives as well as a $75 million increase in transportation funding for the districts. She also said the schools would be helped by the increase in the so-called base student allocation,Ž which provides operational funding for the districts.In the current budget, the allocation increase was slashed to an average of 47 cents per student, as lawmakers shifted funding to major school-safety pro-grams following the Feb. 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.The new budget proposal includes a more robust $118.75 per-student increase for the allocation.The $673 million increase in the K-12 budget is built on a $170 million increase in state funding coupled with a $503 million increase in local school property tax collections.The bulk of the local tax increase, or $421 million, comes from the required local effortŽ levy. The budget proposal would keep that tax rate the same as it is now, with the increased funding coming from taxes on new construction and taxes on increased property values.In recent years, the House has pushed to offset the rise in local property taxes. The Senate has favored using the full increase.Senate Appropriations Chairman Rob Bradley, R-Fleming Island, said Friday that the Senate will continue to advocate for using the entire increase in the new budget negotia-tions. In the current budget, the House and Senate reached an agreement to use only the increase in local school property taxes related to new construction.In other areas of the education budget proposal, the Board of Education backed a series of increases for the state college system, including a new $26 mil-lion initiative to help the 28 schools develop workforce trainingŽ programs.The proposal also includes a new $10 million initiative for safety and mental-health programs for the colleges, and a $4 million increase for indus-try-certification programs.The colleges would also continue to receive $60 mil-lion in annual funding based on performance metrics.And the budget proposal includes $520 million for the Bright Futures scholarship program, to provide merit aid to more than 103,000 students attending state universities and colleges next year.

I enlisted before I got drafted. I had a lottery number. I was going to be drafted. What did you do in the service? I enlisted as a language specialist. I was set to learn Russian. But they had a critical shortage of security police, so I became security police. I was guarding missiles and B-52s (stateside). Why was it important? It wasn't important to me, but they had a critical shortage. I had no choice. What is your most important memory from service? The day I got out. I was very happy to get out.

Its not good at all.By Keith OliverCorrespondentMOUNT DORA „ Every Marine is a rifleman,Ž according to one of the Corps most sacred dictums.But in a small infantry unit, one of those grunts „ a 0351Ž „ is trained and equipped to bring a special talent to the fight. Like a drummer in a rock-and-roll band, this Infantry Assault MarineŽ is the guy who makes things go boomŽ with man-operated rocket fire and demolitions.To say nothing of the steady drumbeat of confi-dence he brings to his battle buddies because of his mine-clearing and breach-ing responsibilities.That was Cpl. Brian Bendel, circa 1981.Today the 54-yearold Mount Dora resident provides that same mindset to family, friends and co-workers at Orlandos Pepsi-Cola operation where he has worked for 33 years. And he saves plenty for the weekend, to share with a small group of fellow mid-dle-aged musicians known in Central Florida as the band, Bucket List.ŽBack in the day,Ž the proud Marines favorite toyŽ was the M47 Dragon, a tank killer and bunker buster he employed to support the platoon. Now Brian bolsters fellow Bucket Listers with eight pieces of imported black pearl artillery with Sabian cymbals and Roland electronic drums.As a high school student in Greeley, Colorado, he took three band classes a dayŽ and all my time was consumed by drums.ŽHe still holds Rush drum-mer Neil Peart as a favorite, along with, more recently, Mike Portnoy and South Africas Cobus Potgieter.I was a little bit of a prob-lem child,Ž Brian admitted, so my Dad signed the papers for me to join the Marines just a month or so after my 17th birthday. Then it was off to boot camp in San Diego, advanced infantry training at Camp Pendleton and then overseas where I spent the bulk of my three year enlist-ment in the Philippines and Japan.ŽDuring a six-month stint on the island of Okinawa, Bendel and three other Marines formed a band and played at local venues. You can always find musicians and singers,Ž he said.A special non-musical highlight was participating in an iconic, recurring exer-cise called TEAM SPIRIT in South Korea.We got off the boat and it was unbelievably cold,Ž Brian said. We went straight to the field and started dig-ging fighting holes in ground so frozen that we were break-ing our entrenching tools.ŽBucket List bass player Steve Oliver, Brians former next-door neighbor, said his Marine friend brings a great discipline and can-do attitude to everything he does. And he operates on the arrival schedule of early is on time and on time is late.ŽWife Helene, an accomplished home designer and decorator, calls her husband my best budŽ and a truly genuine soul. And he makes everybody around him feel comfortable.Brian is rock-steady,Ž Helene said, smiling.For his part, Bendel calls 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines teammate, Sgt. Fernando Madrid, a role model (a calm, natural leader and former Army RangerŽ) but Brian is resolute in naming his post-WWII soldier father as my real hero.ŽJohn E. Bendel, who also served in the Air Force, died in 2016 in Greeley. Everybody respected him,Ž Brian said, the neighbors, his co-workers and the family owners at Pepsi, and his fellow deacons.Six of his former pastors at Hillside Baptist Church came to the funeral, some from as far away as Texas and Oklahoma.ŽA drumbeat of con denceMount Dora Marine and Bucket List drummer rocks steadyBrian Bendel still plays his drums in the garage at his home in Mount Dora.

The VA can bring in battalions of the right kinds of clinicians for to address those wounds sustained in battle „ both seen and unseen. But it does little good if our patients cannot get through the cumbersome, bureaucratic maze. The folks who operate the federal governments Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) seemed to have cracked the code. Not only do knowledgeable representatives promptly pick up the phone, they immediately ask callers for a call-back number in case we get cut off.Ž What a concept. Today TSP, tomorrow the VA? Or even Social Security? Meantime, might the Veterans Administration close the shortfall in live operators/attendants by hiring homeless veterans? Or recruiting older Americans, college-age students and others on a part-time basis? Strong economic growth notwithstanding, our nation still has a demographic out there that could use a second job. Can we not connect the dots? Can we get away from a national, centralized model and, instead, set up local and regional call centers, each supervised by an experienced VA hand to address unusual situations not found on employees scripted cheat sheets. Increased quality employee training could solve that problem, but I digress. Again, the operation needs to belong to local or regional leadership, not national. And local or regional leadership needs to be held accountable. I bet theres a 16-year-old Eagle Scout aspirant out there, gifted in computer and electronic communications skills, just waiting to tackle the problem on behalf of a grateful nation. Fellas, please, its time to fix the frustrating telephone access issue. An old boss of mine who did not suffer fools gladly, Marine Gen. Rich HorseŽ Hearney, would put it the VA oh so succinctly: Sort it out.Ž CHAPS CORNER I always led my Marines in a particular prayer at every field service: God our Father, give us all a sense of cooperation. Help us realize that we cant exist alone. Make us sense our basic unity of purpose.

Were usually never as bad as we think we are „ or good. Fortunately, God doesnt love as any less when were bad. Conversely, He doesnt love us any more when were good. Christians are saved by grace. Thank God for that. If we were saved by merit I think there would be very few Christians. I know there are works we do as Christians but that is in response to grace „ not to receive it. This week I had an idea for a Reflections column. I was trying to find out if children were the only ones who were kept from seeing Jesus. When Nancy was here, I would just ask her where to find things. But I dont have Nancy anymore. What makes it even harder is my stroke in November. My memory, as bad as it was, is even worse. I find myself Googling more than I use to. Oftentimes the results arent what Id hoped for. So I Googled Were children the only ones who were kept from seeking Jesus.Ž I read through the first page of answers and didnt find any that gave me an answer. But one site caused me to stop and read it. I read Benjamin Sledges blog, blog.heartsupport. com. I had to read it because of the title: Why Im a Christian (And Continue to Suck at Being One)Ž. I never thought I would use the word suckŽ in a column but I just did. Benjamin had been a Christian but grew dishearten and walked away. When he was 27 he met two men who changed the way he looked at Christianity. I probably wouldnt have talked with them. They were covered with tattoos, liked beer and even used some swear words, All the things I had been told growing up that got you kicked out of Club God,Ž he said. But the thing that won Benjamin over was the way they loved him and other people who were messy and hurting. It was the way they shared openly about their hurts and repeated failures,Ž he recalled. It was the way they loved their wives and spoke so highly about them. It was the joy they had even in the midst of tears and deep suffering. It was the fact they didnt pretend to have it all together or all the answers. Sometimes they would just say I dont know. But what they DID know was contagious. Infectious. It was big, bold, and beautiful and I was fascinated by it because I had never heard it.Ž He added, Because I know Im a train wreck in a dumpster fire.

Email him at doesnt love us less when were bad | Saturday, September 15, 2018 A7 FAITHTom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 Rick ReedBy David CraryAP National WriterNEW YORK „ Religions role in politics and public policy is in the spotlight heading toward the midterm elections, yet relatively few Americans consider it crucial that a candidate be devoutly religious or share their religious beliefs, according to a poll released Tuesday by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.Just 25 percent of Ameri-cans say its very or extremely important that a candidate has strong religious beliefs, according to the poll. Only 19 percent consider it very or extremely important that a candidate shares their own beliefs, and nearly half say thats not very important or not important at all.Still, most Americans see a role for religion in shaping public policy. A solid majority of Americans, 57 percent, want the influence of religion on government policy to extend beyond tra-ditional culture war issues and into policies addressing poverty. Americans are more likely to say religion should have at least some influence on poverty than on abortion (45 percent) or LGBT issues (34 percent).There is little public support for the campaign by some conservative religious leaders, backed by President Donald Trump, to allow clergy and religious organizations to endorse political candidates while retaining their tax exempt status. Such a change is opposed by 53 percent of Americans and supported by 13 percent. The rest expressed no opinion.Trumps stance on political endorsements by clergy is one of many reasons he has retained strong support among white evangelical Christians, despite aspects of his behavior and personal life that dont neatly align with Christian values. The AP-NORC poll found that 7 in 10 white evangelical Prot-estants say they approve of Trump, a Republican.The importance of a can-didates religious faith varied across religious and political groups.Among white evangelical Protestants, 51 percent consider it very or extremely important that a candidate has strong religious beliefs. An additional 25 percent think its moderately impor-tant. Far fewer Catholics and white mainline Protestants considered this important.Roughly two-thirds of Republicans said its at least moderately important that a candidate has strong reli-gious beliefs, compared with 37 percent of Democrats.Jack Kane, an accountant from Key West, Florida, was among the Republican-leaning poll participants who said it wasnt important to him whether a candidate was deeply religious.Id much rather have a guy run the government and not spend all our money, instead of sounding off on whats going on in the church or on things like abortion,Ž said Kane, 65, who describes him-self as nonreligious. Who is Catholic, Jewish, Southern Baptist „ I could care less, as long as theyre going to carry the torch of freedom.ŽKent Jaquette, a Repub-lican-turned-independent and a former United Methodist pastor who lives near San Antonio, said he does not base his choice of candidates on their religious faith.In politics, you need to look at a person where their morals are, where their values are,Ž he said. It may or may not have anything to do with their religion.ŽJaquette also questioned the motives of evangelicals who support Trump.To me, its supporting someone who gives no indi-cation he intends to live a Christian life,Ž said Jaquette, 63. I believe that Christians should do things that Christ taught „ feed the hungry, visit people in jail, help immigrants.ŽFaith and politicsAP Poll: Voters open to candidates who arent very religiousA local resident leaves a church after voting in the general election in Cumming, Iowa.

OPINIONSteve Skaggs | Publisher Tom McNiff | Executive Editor Whitney Lehnecker | Digital Editor, Lifestyles Editor Tom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 tom.mcniff@dailycommercial.comI know wrong when I see it I am replying to your Our OpinionŽ on Sept. 9. Of course your opinion is one that I heartily share, because I have been the recipient of this kind of behavior from both my natural mother and my adoptive mother. I am now 71 years old, and still have bad memories of their horrible behavior to me! These two women were niece and aunt. When I was 4 years old, my natural mother decided she would cook me eggs for breakfast. They were truly awful, and I wouldnt eat them. She then proceeded to undress me, down to my underpants, threw me out of the house roughly, and locked the door. I screamed, cried, and banged on the door. No one came to my rescue. To this day, I feel the nightmare of that child. When I was about 6, my adoptive mother decided I needed an enema. She was always taking them herself, so I must have needed them, too. I ran out of the house up the driveway, with her chasing me, dragging along my adult cousin, who didnt want to do this to me. When she caught up with me, she made my cousin hold me down while saying, dont do it.Ž There, in the driveway, I got my enema. Needless to say, it is another nightmare. I speak to my husband, who is a man who understands and listens when I do, about this occasionally, when its on my mind. The people who are abusing these children need to be handled by the law. What a bunch of cowards they are if they dont. In the 50s, nobody handled anything. This is no longer the 50s, people! This needs to stop! I applaud the man who took charge of the situation when he found his 5-year-old being sexually abused by another man. That other man will never hurt another child again. I was somewhat justified, at the age of 22, when visiting my natural mother in California. I made breakfast for everyone when my stepfather said, Finally! Someone who knows how to cook eggs!ŽAlison Kinsey, LeesburgWhat do we actually know about climate change? Recently the Washington Post ran an article blaming President Trump for hurricane Florence. Although ludicrous, it reminded me that, as a former Navy meteorologist who has followed climate for more than 50 years, occasionally it is important to set the record straight; simply looking at the facts without bias. So what are the irrefutable facts? We know without doubt that we have had a warming trend since 1984, just as there was from 1896 through 1939. Similarly, we had a cold period from 1940 through 1983 when scientists were calling it global winterŽ and an inevitable new ice age. In addition, scientistsrecently have quietly proved cause/ effect from variations in our suns energy output which have 11 and 44-year cycles. Incidentally, we have been in a low-hurricane period for several decades, although 2005 was a temporary exception. If the past can be used for future predictions, we could expect to see a new cold cycle by 2028 and hurricanes increase before 2050.Jim Freeman, LeesburgLETTERS TO THE EDITORThere is a conservative approach to climate change, one that takes a pragmatic path to protecting our most valuable asset: Earth. The approach is businesslike. And it boils down to this: Just as people buy insurance to protect themselves from auto, fire and health catastrophes, mankind should take precautions to protect the world against the catastrophic effects of climate change. Its a risk management approach, something that most people should appreciate. It embraces this reality: reducing carbon in the atmosphere can actually help our economy by encouraging innovation, energy independence, national security, air quality, health and jobs. Former U.S. Rep. Bob Inglis, a Republican from South Carolina, is among the growing number of Americans who accept the growing evidence that climate change is real. Inglis has proposed a revenue neutral tax on carbon; it would include returning revenue to taxpayers and rolling back environmental regulations like the Clean Power Plan. Meanwhile, longtime establishment Republicans like George Schultz, James Baker and Hank Paulson want corporate America to take the initiative on climate change; they prefer that to having government try to mandate corporate behavior. Of course, the skeptics say Americans should just ignore all of the warning signs. But instead of asking the rest of us to close our eyes to whats obvious, these skeptics need to finally open their eyes. Florida and ooding Theres no such thing as a home that doesnt flood in Florida,Ž Larry LaHue, senior planner for Volusia County Emergency Management, recently told the Daytona Beach News Journal. Theres high risk and low risk, but theres no such thing as no risk.Ž In fact, Federal Emergency Management Agency officials warn that their flooding maps should not be used to calculate risks. Hurricanes Matthew and Irma woke up much of Florida, especially Northeast Florida, to the dangers of storms; storm surge, coupled with rising seas, produced impacts not seen in generations. Of Floridas 67 counties, 49 are at high risk for flooding, according to Floridas mitigation plan. But sunny-day flooding already is a fact in Miami Beach, and flooding incidents are increasing in area places like Mayport. Officials across Florida have yet to get a firm grip on what rising sea levels could mean for the states future flooding woes,Ž the News Journal reported. Take a tropical storm, add a storm surge, then sea level rise, high levels of rainfall and high tides „ and you have a recipe for disaster. Greenlands ice is melting away The ice is melting in Greenland faster than at any time during the last 450 years, according to experts at Dartmouth and three other universities. The last time the Earth was this warm, according to scientists, was about 7,000 years ago. Surge in renewables Coal and gas fuel are facing increasing competition from renewable energy sources, reports Bloomberg New Energy Finance. For example, the cost of lithium-ion batteries has plunged by 79 percent since 2010. Batteries are the real game changer; they are a more reliable source of consistent energy than wind or solar. The Florida Times-Union (Jacksonville)By Laura Thompson LoveBy now you've seen the news of Nike's decision to feature former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in its new marketing campaign. You've also likely seen the gamut of responses to this announcement, spanning validation from pro-athletes to disdain from the president to the viral #boycottNike hashtag on social media. At the heart of the debate lies a central question: Why did Nike do it? Some believe that the answer is simple: sales. The New York Times, for example, suggested in a recent article that Nike's rationale for its new campaign can be boiled down to two things: money and attention. Similarly, an op-ed in last week's Washington Post claimed that the notion that Nike's executives actually care about social issues is "delusional"; the author suggests that this is purely a business play. While critics claim that Nike's campaign is nothing more than surface-level virtue signaling (essentially, when a company publicly espouses certain values „ such as courage, in this case „ to project itself as virtuous), I beg to differ. Having spent the past 10 years helping corporations achieve business goals while also improving society, I have seen the private sector do more than generate profit for itself. And I believe Nike is part of a growing trend of businesses that want to leverage their influence for social progress in the U.S. and the world. I am a director at one of the nation's largest and most successful workforce development programs, Year Up, which trains low-income young adults for coveted positions at Fortune 500 companies across the United States. Chief executives „ more than 250 of them „ engage with our program for both business reasons and because they want to make a genuine impact in their communities, where they are often leaders and sources of economic growth and opportunity. In other words, our corporate partners embrace the opportunity to achieve shared value, to realize benefits for both business and society. Employing our young people „ many of whom work minimum wage jobs with no career path before enrolling in our program „ is good for business. For example, our graduates often stay with their employers longer than the average worker, reducing turnover costs. At the same time, an investment in our students „ who have strong potential, motivation and grit but lack opportunity „ is ultimately an investment in our communities, our nation's future workforce and America's global competitiveness. In our experience, the prospect of having this kind of transformative role in society is inspiring and energizing to business leaders. Other examples of shared value abound, so much so that Fortune Magazine created an annual Change the World list that identifies 50 companies that have "made an important social or environmental impact through their profit-making strategy and operations." Many companies are waking up to the realization that benefiting a broad range of stakeholders „ including employees, customers, communities and shareholders „ is good for business. Indeed, with many of the world's top businesses on Fortune's 2018 list it's clear that the shared value strategy is becoming more of a rule than an exception. All around, we are seeing companies align themselves with social issues. Rather than view these public statements as self-interested schemes to drive bottom line growth, as many commentators have suggested, what if we took them seriously as signs of enlightened capitalism? In believing that corporations „ and the human beings that lead them „ can be driven by both profit and the desire to improve the lives of citizens in the U.S. and elsewhere, we can better harness the power of private sector for social good. To be sure, Nike ran the numbers before launching the campaign. And, more than likely, the odds of increased consumer loyalty among their current or target demographic were high. Indeed, the most recent reports are already showing strong financial gains from the media exposure alone. But, if Nike is part of the growing trend in business that we've seen, the Kaepernick campaign might be about more than superficial virtue signaling. Perhaps Nike's leadership sees an opportunity to realize shared value. #JustDoIt.

Special teams miscues costly as Hurricanes drop one to Trinity Catholic, 36-15By Paul Jenkins paul.jenkins@dailycommercial.comMOUNT DORA … Special teams was the kick of death for the Mount Dora football team on Friday night. With Trinity Catholic scor-ing twice on special teams play to open the game and being gifted a third score on another punt attempt early in the third quarter, the Celt-ics didnt suffer much when their vaunted offense was mostly shut down in a 36-15 win over Mount Dora at Hurricanes Field. Special teams bit us in the behind,Ž Mount Dora coach Frank Scott said. If we dont give up those first two scores, its a one score game at the end and were driving. Our guys fought hard. Weve just got to eliminate those mistakes.Ž Mount Dora (2-2) played without injured starting quar-terback Tyler Schwartz and even had to go all the way to third-string quarterback Roman Newkirk. The Hurricanes also didnt have the services of Isayah Hatter … one of the areas top running backs … on offense as a disci-plinary measure. He played on defense. Newkirk finished hitting 8 of 15 passes for 117 yards with a touchdown and an intercep-tion and led the Hurricanes on the ground with 73 yards rushing on 16 carries. Newkirk had never played By Mark LongThe Associated PressGAINESVILLE „ The Buyout BowlŽ between Colorado State and Florida was expected to be a blowout „ until last week.Then Colorado State rallied to upset Arkansas, and Florida got manhandled on both lines of scrimmage in the programs first loss to Kentucky since 1986.Now, not even former Rams and Gators coach Jim McElwain could accurately predict what will happen in the Swamp on Saturday.Will Colorado State (1-2) knock off another Southeastern Conference team? Or will Flor-ida (1-1) find more physicality in a week and avoid matching the programs worst start since 1992?Either way, the one-off game is a seemingly awkward affair and an expensive reminder of McElwains success at Colorado State and his failure at Florida.The Gators are paying the Rams a staggering $2 million to come to Gainesville, part of McElwains $7 million buyout to leave Colorado State late in the 2014 season. And McEl-wains not even around for the game against his former team.Ill be honest.

[THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] IN SATURDAYS E-EDITIONCOLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEK 3 PREVIEWFor our loyal subscribers, 8 pages of additional coverage to get you ready for game day. By Bob FerranteAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE „ Florida State coaches have been closely watch-ing to see which young receiver would emerge in preseason camp or early during the season.Tamorrion Terry has stepped forward, giving the Seminoles exactly what they needed. The redshirt freshman has four catches for 82 yards, including a pair of touchdowns, in a 36-26 win over Samford last Saturday."He's a talented football player for us, a kid that can go up and attack the ball on one-on-one," Florida State coach Willie Taggart said. "And a kid that can stretch the field for you as well."He had a great week of practice. And I think that's why he had the game that he had, just his mentality where he went about practicing and it paid off for him in the game. And hopefully a lot of our other guys learn from his example, come and locked into practice and you get the same results on the foot-ball field."While the Seminoles (1-1) have struggled, gen-erating just a field goal in the season-opening loss to Virginia Tech and needing a fourth-quarter rally to hold off Samford, the emergence of Terry is encouraging for a young receiving group that is still finding its way in Taggart's Gulf Coast Offense.Florida State needs more performances like that from Terry and the rest of the receivers as the Seminoles look to jump-start the offense, beginning on Saturday at Syracuse (2-0).Taggart said his first impression of Terry came in December practices leading up to the Semi-noles' bowl game against Southern Miss. The new coach, just days on the job, wanted to know who was the receiver making all of the plays. He was quickly told that No. 15 was Terry, and Taggart knew he had a receiver for the future.But Terry took a redshirt in 2017 and didn't play.

Boggus Stadium.This was a quality win for us,Ž said Eustis coach Mike Hay. Tavares is a wellcoached team and they play hard. For us to win, it was going to take effort from our guys and we got it. They went out and played good, hard, tough, physical Eustis football.I couldnt ask for more from our kids and Im proud of them.ŽAt the midway point of the third quarter, it didnt look like Hay would celebrating anything.Tavares had scored on its first two possessions of the second half to turn a 13-6 halftime deficit into a 20-13 third-quarter lead.

By Tim ReynoldsThe Associated PressCORAL GABLES „ There was honesty from both Toledo and Miami this week.The Rockets arent pretending otherwise: Having the 21st-ranked Hurricanes come into their home Glass Bowl stadium in Toledo, Ohio, today represents one of the biggest events in the 101 years of Toledo football, maybe even the one thatll sit atop the list.The games not just another game,Ž Toledo coach Jason Candle said.The Hurricanes know the Rockets feel that way, and dont sound worried.Were built to crush dreams,Ž Hurricanes running back DeeJay Dallas said.Its pretty clear that both teams understand the magnitude of what can happen this afternoon. Toledo (1-0) gave Miami (1-1) plenty of problems last season on the Hurricanes home field and will be upset-minded yet again this time around. This is a game in which the Rockets have basically everything to gain and very little to lose.Weve had major opponents here in the past in the Glass Bowl ... some major players here,Ž Candle said. But probably none of the magnitude of the Miami Hurri-canes. Yeah, I think its a huge deal for our city and a great opportunity for our kids.ŽToledo led Miami 16-10 midway through the third quarter of the teams game last season at Hard Rock Stadium before falling 52-30. That got the Hurricanes attention, as do the facts that the Rockets won the Mid-American Con-ference title a year ago, have posted eight consecutive win-ning records and have a senior class that, on average, has been part of 10 wins per season.Further complicating matters for Miami is this: The Rockets are coming off an unusual early bye week, mean-ing theyve had two weeks to get curveballs ready to throw at the Hurricanes. But on the plus side for Miami, the Hurri-canes went through something similar two years ago when they went to an amped-up Appalachian State for another game where upset fears were real.Miami won that game 45-10, handling the raucous atmo-sphere with ease.Itll be wild,Ž Miami coach Mark Richt said, when asked what he expects to see on today. Well get everything theyve got. Im sure theyll have every single seat sold and theyll be standing room only. Their fans are going to be ready for a great battle. Theyve been excited about this for a while.ŽTHE DEALHeres what Toledo athletic director Mike OBrien said when he took Miamis offer for this home-and-home series, back in 2010: Miami is arguably the highest-profile opponent ever to play in the Glass Bowl.Ž Hes right. Its somewhat strange for a school like Miami to initiate a 1-for-1 deal against a nonPower 5 opponent, and the reasoning then-Miami AD Kirby Hocutt used at the time remains unclear. Tell me who we play, and well play,Ž Richt said.INJURY WATCHAhmmon Richards came into this season expected to be Miamis best receiver, and hell have one catch for nine yards after three games. Richards is not playing today, missing his second straight game with what the Hurricanes have called a bone bruise in his knee. He has been listed as day-today, and it is unknown if hell play next week against FIU.AERIAL DISPLAYToledos offense will spread Miami out all over the field, and the Rockets have three wideouts who gave the Hurricanes problems last season. Cody Thompson, JonVea Johnson and Diontae Johnson „ all of whom had a TD catch in Toledos Week 1 win over VMI „ combined to make 18 catches for 259 yards and three touchdowns against Miami a year ago.CAPACITY CROWDOfficially, Toledos stadium can hold 26,038 fans. But this week, Rockets officials wouldnt be surprised to see the crowd reach 30,000. The last time that happened at the Glass Bowl was 2016, when Toledo-Bowling Green drew 30,147.HASLEMS THOUGHTSMiami Heat forward Udonis Haslem loves the Hurricanes; the Miami native went to Flor-ida, played for the Gators, but is a diehard Hurricanes football fan. Thats on hold this week, for a very good reason. His son, Kedonis Haslem, is an offen-sive tackle for the Rockets. So when asked for a pick, family ties won out over fandom. Ive gotta ride with Toledo,Ž the Heat captain said. Thats my son. Im going to ride with my son and my kids. Thats a no-brainer.Ž | Saturday, September 15, 2018 B3Miami head coach Mark Richt walks off the “ eld after a timeout during the “ rst half of a game against Savannah State last week in Miami Gardens. [AP PHOTO/BRYNN ANDERSON] Toledo excited for chance to host to No. 21 MiamiThe Associated PressLAS VEGAS „ Tennis star Serena Williams talked about her fashion business, not tennis fouls during an appearance before a business convention in Las Vegas.The 23-time Grand Slam champion said not a word Friday about gender equal-ity in sports or an argument she had last weekend with the chair umpire at her U.S. Open finals match in New York.Williams said previously she was treated more harshly than a male player would have been after smashing her racket and arguing with match official Carlos Ramos during her finals loss to Naomi Osaka in New York.She received three code violations and was penal-ized one game. She was later fined $17,000.Williams spent 25 minutes talking onstage with Sarah Robb OHagan, chief execu-tive of Flywheel Sports, at the National Retail Federation trade show.Serena talks fashion, not fouls, at Las Vegas eventquarterback and I thought he did a good job,Ž Scott said. We were missing a starting defensive end and linebacker and we knew being down to our third-string quarterback that it was going to be tough.Ž Mount Dora held Trinity Catholic to 119 yards rushing on 28 carries while quarter-back King Redd was 4 of 8 for 101 yards with two touch-downs and two interceptions. All his completions went to Tre Mobley. Even with Schwartz and Hatter in the backfield, the Hurricanes would have had trouble overcoming the miscues on special teams as Trinity Catholic was able to take a 14-0 lead before the Celtics offense had ever taken the field. After the Hurricanes got stopped on their first pos-session, the Celtics got a hand on the punt for the block. But as Mount Dora players stood around and watched, John Heflin scooped up the live ball and went 30 yards for a touchdown. Corey King ran it in for a 2-point conversion to give Trinity Catholic an 8-0 lead 74 seconds into the game. The Hurricanes then got stopped on their second possession and this time got the punt away, only to have Heflin gather it in, scoot down the left sideline, cut back to the middle and race into the end zone. A failed extra point attempt left the Celtics in front 14-0 with 6:25 to go in the first quarter. Mount Doras third posses-sion ended in an interception and Trinity Catholic went 67 yards in seven plays for a 20-0 lead with 2:05 left in the first quarter. The big play was a 30-yard completing from Redd to Mobley and Heflin ran it in from the 2. Mount Dora finally showed some signs of life on the ensu-ing possession as Newkirk hit Austin Berg streaking down the right sideline for a 78-yard touchdown reception, cutting Trinity Catholics lead to 20-8 with 22 seconds remaining in the first quarter. Trinity Catholic opened the third quarter with Redd connecting with Mobley on a 54-yard score to push the lead to 28-8 with 10:27 left in the third quarter. After Mount Dora drove out to midfield, another punt attempt saw the snap sail over Newkirks head and Trinity Catholic got the ball on the Mount Dora 20. Seven Plays later Redd threw up a jump ball that Mobley outjumped everyone for and hauled it in for a 36-8 lead with 3:12 to go in the third quarter. Hatter got that score back by going 48 yards for a pick-six with 48 seconds remaining in the third quarter, but nei-ther team could threaten the rest of the way. Our defense played great tonight,Ž Scott said. Those easy touchdowns just killed us.Ž HURRICANESFrom Page B1 FOOTBALL Ocala Forest 49, Leesburg 13A disappointing season got worse for Leesburg Friday night when it was overwhelmed by Ocala Forest, 49-13 in a con-ference away game.Leesburg managed to keep the game relatively close for a half as it took a 28-13 deficit into the locker room at the half. But Forest put up 14 points in the third quarter and seven more in the fourth to pull away for a convincing win.Leesburg fell to 0-4 on the year while Forest improved to 3-1.Mount Dora Christian 57, Ocala Christian 7Mount Dora Christian Acad-emy opened its conference schedule the way it had hoped … with a big win over Ocala Christian Academy, 0-4, at home Friday night.Mount Dora Christian, 1-3, didn't waste any time getting on the scoreboard, taking the opening kickoff and marching 70 yards in four plays before punching it in for a 6-0 lead. The Bulldogs went on to score on their first four series en route to a 30-0 first quarter lead.By the 8 minute mark of the second quarter, the score was 42-0, the rout was on, and Mount Dora Christian was emptying its bench to give its backups some reps.The win was a welcome change for the Bulldogs, who opened the season 3-0. But coach Kolby Tackett said he purposely scheduled tough non-conference opponents early in the season to prepare his team for the conference games, with an eye toward making a deep playoff run.Mount Dora Christian is off next week and then returns home the following week for a key matchup with Santa Fe Catholic.Oviedo Hagerty 35, Lake Min-neola 28Lake Minneola dropped a close game to rival Hagerty on Friday night in a loss that Coach Walter Banks blamed on the team's lack of discipline and focus.Banks said Lake Minneola, which dropped to 2-2 on the season, made too many errors and would have to clean that up if it hoped to make a postseason sun later this fall.Early on, it looked like the Hawks might run away with it as they scored 13 quick points to build a commanding lead. Hagerty roared back with two unanswered touchdowns and then the teams traded scores until the fourth quarter.With the score tied 28-28, Lake Minneola picked off a Hagerty pass but the offense was unable to convert it into points.Hagerty, as it had all game, ran the ball hard and punched one in for the final margin of victory.It was Lake Minneola's third straight loss to Hagerty.Next week. Lake Minneola hosts Winter Park Lake Howell in a Class 7A-4 contest.Crescent City 28, Wildwood 26A week after earning their first win of the season over Mount Dora Christian, Wildwood was unable to build on that momentum and dropped a close game to Crescent City Friday night, 28-26.Wildwood fell to 1-3 on the season, while Crescent City improved to 3-1.First Academy Leesburg 26, St. Edwards 7FirstAcademy improved to 2-1 on the season with a convincing win over St. Edwards in Vero BeachVOLLEYBALL East Ridge 3, OcoeeLateisha Edwards had five kills and Amanda Morton had six kills and a block to lead East Ridge to a 25-14, 25-9, 25-10 win over Ocoee on Thursday.East Ridge improved to 8-0 overall and 3-0 in Class 8A-District 5 play and has not lost a set this season. Ocoee falls to 3-4 overall and 1-2 in the district.. East Ridge travels to Tavares on Monday.South Lake 3, Lake Region 0Sophia Diaz had six kills and two aces and Shelby Hicks had four aces and 19 digs to lead South Lake to a 25-9, 25-18, 25-14 win over Lake Region on Thursday night.South Lake improves to 6-1 on the season and travels to Lake Gibson next week.HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUPForests Chase Oliver breaks up a pass intended for Leesburgs Jatavian Solomon on Friday. [CYNDI CHAMBERS/OCALA STAR BANNER CORRESPONDENT] Eustis was on the ropes.But Hay rallied his play-ers behind Romano, the younger brother of senior Tanner Romano, who is out for the season with an injury. The younger Romano capped a seven-play, 64-yard drive with a picture perfect game-tying 26-yard scoring pass to Ricardo Wright.In the fourth quarter, Romano directed the Panthers on a pair of time-consuming scoring drives that were capped off with touchdown runs by Kdell Houston. Houstons second scored capped an 11-play, 57-yard drive that began with 6 minutes, 35 seconds left in the game and ended with just 24 sec-onds remaining.During the Panthers final drive, Romano connected with Anthony Evelina for an eight-yard reception on third down and kept the drive alive. Romano deftly moved around to avoid pressure until he found Evelina.You couldnt ask for more from a freshman than Blayne gave us tonight,Ž said Hay. Even though he cant play, Tanner has been working with his brother and encouraging him. After a game like this, I think a lot of us believe Blayne has the potential to be really special.ŽTavares (2-2) finished with 371 yards of total offense, but struggled to move the ball for much of the second half, after its two scores to open the third quarter. The Bulldogs ran 40 plays in the first half, but managed only 17 after intermission.Williams completed 20 of 34 passes for 333 yards and two touchdowns, but he also tossed two inter-ceptions. Williams was the Bulldogs top ball-carried, as well, finishing with 47 yards on 16 carries. Connelly had six catches for 142 yards.Eustis (2-2) finished with 324 of total offense, led by Rashon Scott, who ran for 173 yards on 13 carries and a touchdown. Houston scored twice, as did Wright.Romano completed five of 14 passes for 98 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.Next up for Tavares is a home game against Naples St. John Neumann at 6 p.m. on Sept. 21.Following the emo-tional win against Tavares, Eustis must now prepare to host Mount Dora, another Golden Triangle, at 7 p.m. Sept. 21.

PAGE 15 | Saturday, September 15, 2018 B5Florida States Tamorrion Terry scores a touchdown after making a pass reception against Samford last week in Tallahassee. [AP PHOTO/ STEVE CANNON, FILE] Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks (13) is brought down by Kentucky Wildcats safety Davonte Robinson (9) in the fourth quarter last week in Gainesville. [CYNDI CHAMBERS/ GATEHOUSE MEDIA] had never done it on a game day.On a 27-yard, firstquarter touchdown grab vs. Samford, Terry reached out with his left hand, pulled it in and raced upfield for the score „ the first Florida State touchdown of the season. He also added a 17-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter.For Terry, they were good moments. But he understands he has more work to do.I felt good about that but I really cant say too much about the touchdowns because Im looking forward to making a lot more,Ž Terry said.What stands out immediately is Terrys 6-foot-4 frame, which he used as a high school senior in grabbing 19 touchdown receptions at Ashburn (Georgia) Turner County. Terry has the height and ath-leticism as well as speed to make plays in the open field. Hes already drawn respect from defenses that roll a safety over and double team him and sees it as a sign of respect.When they double team me, I like that because it opens up my teammate,Ž Terry said. Somebody is going to be wide open. Were going to get a big play.ŽTerry has also earned his opportunities because of his blocking. Terry knows how much Florida States staff values blocking, and he has done a good job of helping to keep defend-ers off other receivers or tailbacks in the open field.The things he did exceptionally well on Saturday had nothing to do with two touchdowns,Ž offensive coordinator Walt Bell said. You want to talk about a guy who blocked and played hard without the ball and was an unbe-lievable teammate, he was unbelievable with-out the ball the and thats a thing a lot of people dont notice.Ž TERRYFrom Page B1 2020. McElwain agreed to kick in $2 million out of his own pocket in annual installments of $333,333 over the same span.The other $2 million will be paid to the Rams for the game at Florida Field. Its the largest single-game guarantee that any one school has ever paid to another.Were getting paid $2 million?Ž Rams coach Mike Bobo said. Thats good.ŽIt would feel even better if CSU wins.The Rams trailed 27-9 late in the third quarter against the Razorbacks last week before scoring the final 25 points. They also mounted a furious comeback in the opener against Hawaii, but ultimately lost 43-34.They have the confidence that they can come in and try and do it again,Ž Florida receiver Josh Ham-mond said. We definitely have to be on our toes, and we definitely have to put in the work this week and treat it like its an SEC game or any other game. Every game is going to be big for us this year, and I think the biggest thing for us is our progression and how we attack it this week.ŽThe Gators have vowed to respond after last weeks humbling, 27-16 loss to the Wildcats that ended a 31-game winning streak in the series.Florida was overmatched in the trenches, a problem that started during McEl-wains tenure. The current Michigan receivers coach left the program with holes on offense, defense and special teams and the recruiting trail. Kentucky took advantage.The Gators are hoping the Rams wont do the same.Everybody in the worlds got problems,Ž Mullen said. Successful people have solutions, and our guys, weve got to go out on the field and find solutions and fix our problem.ŽHere are some other things to know about Colo-rado State and Florida:FAMILIAR FACEBobo has faced Florida 18 times in his career, four as a player and 14 as a coach. Bobo is 6-12 in those contests, including 1-3 as Georgias quarterback (1994-97) and 5-9 as an assistant coach with the Bulldogs. He has played just once at Florida Field, a 52-14 loss as a freshman in 1994.DEFENSIVE RETURNSFlorida expects to get two defensive players back on the field against the Rams. Linebacker David Reese, who led the team in tackles in 2017, and senior defensive end CeCe Jefferson missed the first two games. Reese was recovering from a knee injury, and Jefferson was dealing with academic issues. They could be significant additions for a unit that allowed 303 yards rushing against Kentucky.FIRST-TIMERSThe Gators have won 17 consecutive games against first-time opponents like Colorado State, a streak that started after Michi-gan beat Florida in the 2003 Outback Bowl.

B6 Saturday, September 15, 2018 | BUSINESS Bowled overCereal aisle mainstay General Mills serves up its latest quarterly results Tuesday. Financial analysts predict the companys fiscal first-quarter earnings declined from a year earlier, even as revenue climbed. In June, the maker of Cheerios cereal, Yoplait yogurt and other packaged foods provided an upbeat outlook for its current fiscal year.Economic barometer An indicator of the U.S. economys future health has been improving this summer. After posting a gain of 0.1 percent in May, the Conference Boards index of leading indicators climbed 0.6 percent in June and July. The index, which is derived from data that for the most part have already been reported individually, is designed to anticipate economic conditions three to six months out. Augusts reading is due on Thursday.Home constructionSolid job growth and a dearth of existing homes for sale have fueled demand for newly built homes. The pace of housing starts has slowed of late, though, with rising lumber, land and labor costs weighing on homebuilders. Housing starts edged up 0.9 percent in July, not nearly enough to reverse a 12.9 percent plunge in June. The Commerce Department issues its August tally of newly begun residential construction projects Wednesday.

Smaller companies rose following signs of sustained economic growth and reports that more tariffs on Chinese goods could be on the way.Stocks rose in early trading after the Federal Reserve said production of cars and energy jumped in August. The Commerce Department said sales by retailers grew only slightly in August after a big gain in July.Its a reflection of stronger economic growth,Ž said Kate Warne, an investment strategist for Edward Jones. It continues to bode well for strength going into the fall and later in the year. Warne said she expects the U.S. economy to grow about 3 percent this year, which is what most experts are forecasting. She said growth will be a bit weaker than in 2019, but that would still be better than most of the previous years since 2009.Bond yields jumped Friday as investors inter-preted the Federal Reserve report as a sign the econ-omy will keep growing and interest rates will keep rising. That helped bank stocks, but it hurt high-dividend stocks.Retailers and health care stocks also took small losses.Bloomberg News reported that President Donald Trump has told aides to go ahead with tariffs on $200 billion in imports from China. The report said the administration may be having difficulty finding products it can tax that wont result in major complaints from consumers and businesses.China said Thursday the U.S. had reached out to open a new round of trade talks. The new round of tariffs would represent a major escalation in the U.S.-China conflict, which has lasted for most of this year.Little giantsSmall-company stocks shine on an otherwise ho-hum day BRIEFCASEWASHINGTONUS retail sales up just 0.1 pct. after previous gainU.S. retail sales barely rose in August as consumers slowed their spending after a robust month of shopping in July.The Commerce Department said Friday that the value of purchases ticked up just 0.1 percent last month, the smallest increase in six months. But the sluggish figure may prove only a temporary blip. It partly reflected falling prices for items like clothing, and it followed a strong gain of 0.7 percent in July.Consumer confidence soared to its highest level in 18 years in August as Americans expressed a more optimistic outlook on the economy. That suggests that retail sales could rebound in the coming months.WASHINGTONUS industrial production rose a solid 0.4% in Aug.U.S. industrial pro-duction rose by a healthy 0.4 percent in August, boosted by gains in the production of autos, oil and natural gas.The Federal Reserve said Friday that industrial production, which includes output at facto-ries, mines and utilities, has climbed 4.9 percent over the past 12 months. Industrial production appears on track for its strongest annual growth since 2010, when it jumped 5.5 percent as the economy began to recover from the Great Recession.CAPE CANAVERAL, FLA.SpaceX changes plans to send tourists around moonSpaceX said it has signed the first private moon traveler, with some changes to its original game plan.The big reveal on who it is „ and when the flight to the moon will be „ will be announced Monday at the companys headquarters in Hawthorne, California.Its not the same mis-sion SpaceX founder Elon Musk outlined last year. The original plan called for two paying passengers to fly around the moon this year, using a Falcon Heavy rocket and a Dragon crew capsule. The Associated Press Apple, Firefox tools aim to thwart Facebook, Google trackingBy Anick JesdanunThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Facebook and other companies routinely track your online surfing habits to better target ads at you. Two web browsers now want to help you fight back in whats becoming an escalating privacy arms race.New protections in Apples Safari and Mozillas Firefox browsers aim to prevent com-panies from turning cookieŽ data files used to store sign-in details and preferences into broader trackers that take note of what you read, watch and research on other sites.Lance Cottrell, creator of the privacy service Anony-mizer, said Apples effort was particularly significant, as it takes aim at a technique devel-oped by tracking companies to override users attempts to delete their cookies.Safari makes these protec-tions automatic in updates coming Tuesday to iPhones and iPads and a week later to Mac computers. Firefox has similar protections on Apple mobile devices and is rolling out them out to personal computers in the coming months.To get the protections, youll have to break your habit of using Googles Chrome browser, which by some esti-mates has more than half of the worldwide browser usage. Safari and Firefox have less than 20 percent combined.Even then, Safari and Firefox cant entirely stop tracking. For starters, they wont block tracking when youre using Facebook or Google itself. Nor can they help much when you use phone or tablet apps, unless the app happens to embed Safari, as Twitters iPhone app does.But Will Strafach, a mobile security expert who is design-ing data security tools for phones, said imperfect protection is better than no protection. He notes that burglars can still break down a door, but that doesnt mean you shouldnt bother locking it.Cookies and other track-ers can be used by companies to keep track of who you are as you move from website to website. The companies can build a digital profile as you, say, read about Democratic or Republican viewpoints, buy a particular brand of pet food or indulge in the entire season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.ŽNews, video and other third-party sites use Google and Facebook cookies to cus-tomize ads to your hobbies and interests, rather than hawking products you might never buy. Thats why you might see an ad for shoes soon after search-ing for them elsewhere.Safari will try to automati-cally distinguish cookies that are useful from ones that are there just to track you. Apple notes that cookies can appear in unexpected places, such as sites that embed likeŽ and shareŽ buttons. Now, those cookies will be blocked until you click on one of those buttons, in which case youll be prompted for permission to allow the tracking. If you dont, your likeŽ wont register.Keeping their hands out of the cookie jarBy the numbersApple says its tests show that some popular websites are embedded with more than 70 such trackers. Many of these are from Facebook and Google, which are expected to command a combined 57 percent of the $107 billion U.S. digital advertising market this year, according to the research group eMarketer.By Maria DanilovaThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ The Trump administration on Friday asked the court for another chance to delay an Obama-era policy meant to boost protections for students defrauded by for-profit schools.The request comes two days after the court ruled that Edu-cation Secretary Betsy DeVos move to freeze the regulation known as borrower defense was arbitrary and capricious.Ž That decision dealt a severe blow to her efforts to ease regulations on the for-profit college industry.Attorney Adam Pulver with Public Citizen, an advocacy group, said defrauded students are facing continuing everyday harmŽ and asked the court that the delayed regula-tion be enforced immediately.But lawyers for the Depart-ment of Education asked Judge Randolph Moss to give the agency a chance to correct the mistakes the court identified in how the delay was put in place. It also asked that in case the court does rule that the Obama regulation must take effect, that it grant the department 60 days to prepare.Judge Moss did not say when he would issue a ruling.Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, who took part in the lawsuit against DeVos along with a group of Democratic attorneys general from a number of states, said Wednesdays ruling was a victory for every family defrauded by a preda-tory for-profit school.ŽThe Obama administration went hard after the for-profit sector, tightening regulations and spending over $550 million to forgive the loans of defrauded students. DeVos said that system was unfair to taxpayers and set out to rewrite those rules.Critics charged that DeVos was looking out for industry interests. They point to the fact that she has hired for-profit insiders to top positions at her agency.But Rick Hess, director of education policy at the conservative American Enter-prise Institute, said DeVos is trying to strike a healthier balance between protecting students and ensuring that taxpayers dont get ripped off.ŽFederal court ponders next steps in DeVos for-pro t suit DeVos

Would you like to spruce it up to sell ƒ or just to make coming home more enjoyable? There are tons of improvements you can undertake to give your house exterior a facelift, at a whole range of price points. Some are best done by a pro, but there are plenty of DIY possibilities, as well. Take a look at this list of 10 suggestions.1. Pull out the paintbrush. Painting is a time-honored, affordable way of making just about anything in and around your home look fresh and new. Paint the entire house exterior or simply touch up the trim and voila. Youve got instant curb appeal.2. Spruce up the front door. Installation of a new steel entry door gives an excellent return on investment when you sell, according to Remodeling Magazines well-known annual Cost vs Value report. If thats not in the cards at the moment, sanding and restaining a wooden door „ or replacing the hardware on any type of door „ will make a substantial improvement on a dime.3. Refresh garage doors. Speaking of doors, did you know the average attached garage makes up 30 percent of the house exterior viewed from the street? And its doors play a major role in your homes appearance. Make sure garage doors are looking their best. If theyre more than 20-25 years old, consider hiring a contractor for replacement. Otherwise, embellish them easily by re“ nishing, adding windows, or changing the hardware.4. Light up your outdoors. Brighten up your house exterior with the right light “ xtures. They will look great and help keep you and your guests safe, as well. Choose from styles such as lanterns, solar lights, or lighting conveniently embedded in your decks support posts.5. Tend the landscape. Trim trees and shrubs neatly „ it will help them grow healthier. Add window boxes or a few attractive potted plantings for a quick, inexpensive lift. And while youre at it, remove any plants that might actually harm your home, such as English ivy, which, as it grows, is capable of tearing off gutters and roof shingles.6. Pay attention to your driveway. Nothing says tiredŽ like an old cracked, oil-stained stretch of drive right smack in front of your home. Resurface a concrete or asphalt driveway or give it a brand new luxe look by installing high-end materials like bricks or concrete pavers.7. Show your front walk some love. When the sidewalk leading to your entrance is looking the worse for wear, try one of these quick “ xes. Repair cracked concrete; edge the walk with a neat row of cobblestones, river rocks, or landscape timber on either side „ or call a landscaper to give your walkway a brand new look.8. Let your house numbers shine. You can accomplish this the low-tech way „ by polishing up a vintage brass number plate „ or go ultra high tech and install an LED-lit address display. The latter also helps “ rst responders “ nd your home fast in case of emergency.9. Add a portico or a porch. Dress up your homes frontage with a portico that will protect you from the elements while you hunt for your keys. Or go grand with the construction of a new porch, either out in front or wrapped all around the house.10. Reclad your house exterior. Recladding is a larger scale home makeover which makes a dramatic difference. Install new siding, cedar shakes, stucco, brick, or stone to improve a faded appearance and stop leaks. And if youre putting your home up for sale soon, recladding with manufactured stone veneer (its actually affordable concrete) offers an impressive 97 percent ROI.Laura Firszt writes for your house exterior a facelift BIGSTOCK HOMES Many builders and remodelers use the term allowanceŽ when they bid proposed construction projects. In most cases, the homeowner is wooed by a number which has little reality to their wants and desires. A $2,000 door allowance for a new home may sound like a lot. However, for three doors in a typical home the selection would be limited, especially if there are sidelights and transoms involved. Allowances take advantage of the lack of knowledge that most homeowners have when it comes to the cost of building supplies. Lauralyn Lane is a real estate agent and certified home designer for ERA Grizzard Real Estate. She advises her clients to never accept open allowances when planning a new home or remodeling project. Clients should get their plans in order and not accept plans that are only halfway completed. Many times, incomplete plans are a result of clients who do not have the time or desire to get deep into the details and a willing draftsperson who has no problem pushing hard specification decisions to the builders. For example, instead of specifying a 36x80 Therma-Tru Fiber-Classic Oak FC736 front door, the draftsperson will draw in place a 6-panel door unit, which leads to confusion later. Lane recommends to every one of her clients that they have the specifications for their home or remodeling project in order before construction begins. Cost overruns and mistakes occur when specifications are made on the fly or communicated verbally. Specification sheets that are approved by the client and builder should be part of every project. Worse yet are change orders on job sites. If changes in construction or products are made, a change order with specific details should be written out and signed off by all parties as to the changes and cost. Disputes in change orders are the No. 1 reason that many jobs go awry in the end. Clients will go through a builders model home or showroom and not realize they are not getting everything in the showroom,Ž Lane said. When going through the list of the builders standards, clients must review it closely, as the standards listed typically do not match the model home or showroom. This is how extras get added to the clients home purchase price. While it is not bait-and-switch selling, some builders will take advantage of the clients lack of knowledge in home construction. For over 30 years, Lane has been working with clients to help them make good decisions in home design and selection by focusing on two primary drivers. The first question Lane asks every client when they begin pursuing any real estate transaction or design is, What are you trying to accomplish?Ž Without a real understanding of the clients hopes and dreams, long-lasting mistakes will be made. The next question Lane asks is, How are you going to pay for it?Ž This question is asked up front, because without setting a budget, many homeowners with limited knowledge of construction will over-plan and become disappointed when AROUND THE HOUSEGet deep into details of construction projects Don MagruderSee MAGRUDER, C2


C2 Saturday, September 15, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comprojects dont meet their expectations. Many homeowners are afraid to discuss a construction budget in fear they will receive less value. This is the reason why a homeowner should always get multiple bids. Lane says activity in the real estate market is good, with many homeowners contemplating housing upgrades. For homeowners who are considering selling their home to upgrade, Lane recommends the homeowner declutter their house. She defines decluttering as packing up and removing about 50 percent of the personal items in the home. Next, she says the home must be very clean … no one wants to buy a filthy house. If something is broken around the home, fix it … no one wants to inherit your home repairs. Finally, if you have bold colors, tone them down with neutral colors. Lane goes on to say, space planning is the most important service I can offer a client.Ž Ultimately space planning comes down to two simple points. The client must know what he or she wants, and then be able to communicate it in detail to the realt estate agent and construction professional. Before you build, plan „ and then plan some more „ for the best results.

MAGRUDERFrom Page C1 The UF/IFAS Extension Lake County Master Gardeners have been receiving a lot of phone calls about pine trees dying in the area. I contacted both a University of Florida forestry specialist and our county forester to see why trees might be dying. First, it is hard to tell what is damaging a tree unless an expert can inspect it or view good, diagnostic photos. Hurricane damage, pitch canker and diplodia are all common culprits behind pine tree death in Central Florida, but they are not the only known causes. Our plant clinic recently experienced multiple calls in a 24-hour period reporting pine tree death. Knowing that disease and insect problems typically occur over time and in splotchy patterns, it led us to believe that environmental conditions are at play. Hurricane damage from Irma is just now showing on some species and may continue to show over the next year. It is common for pines to die out in late summer when a hurricane occurred the previous summer. Pines trees are vulnerable to hurricanes because they are tall and their branches are close to the crown. The leaf canopy can act as a sail, causing the trunk to bend and twist and damaging the vascular system of the plant. Damage to the root system occurs when hurricane-force winds push against the top of the tree. Roots smaller than a pencil in diameter can snap as the tree moves back and forth in the soil. At times, only a small percentage of a trees root system will be left to transport water and nutrients to the leaf canopy. They can survive throughout the next winter, spring and even summer but will be stressed. Trees may use up reserves during these seasons and cant tolerate the daily repeated heat in late summer due to the root loss. This alone could cause impacted trees to die. When other environmental stressors come into play, the already weak pine tree will be even more susceptible to diseases, like diplodia twig blight, and insect pests such as the ips beetle. Our current wet summer created a perfect hot and humid environment for many fungal pathogens. Root rot occurs in flooded fields or other areas of excessively wet soil.This is critical as most pines need a well-drained soil to survive. While there may be no saving the declining pines dotting our area, future plantings can be set up for success. The best way to start a newly planted pine is from a sapling. Containerized pines, often left in the pot too long, develop deformed roots. These deformed roots never form their proper deep root structures and they, too, fall victim to disease and pests. If you must plant a containerized pine, go for the smallest one possible because smaller trees will quickly catch up to larger containerized trees. Furthermore, pines need a well-drained site in full sun. There are very few species that can tolerate flooding and wet conditions. It is important to note that pines do not typically need fertilization. Avoid fertilizing these native trees, even with fertilizer applied to surrounding turf. Excessive nitrogen can exacerbate fungal diseases like diplodia tip blight. If a pine is nutrientdeficient in an urban setting, it is probably due to a soil pH problem and another tree species would be a better fit. For help selecting native trees, attend Step-By-Step to a Florida Native Yard from 9 a.m. to noon on Sept. 22 at the Lake County Extension Center, 1951 Woodlea Road in Tavares. The Florida Native Plant Society, Lake Beautyberry Chapter, is offering a class on changing your traditional landscape to a native yard.

PAGE 23 | Saturday, September 15, 2018 C3 By Norman WinterTribune News Service (TNS)Saucy is nothing short of sensational for an annual salvia. From late April through the heat of August a lot of flowers have come and gone, but Saucy is still putting on the wow factor. Saucy is a series of Salvia splendens which originated in Brazil. It comes in wine which is purple, red which is lush and saturated in color, and my favorite, coral because it is rare for this plant and offers a myriad of stunning partnerships. Saucy salvias will reach about 2 to 3 feet tall and wide. Whether you choose foliage or flowers as their companion, you can rest assured Saucy will simply make it better. I guess its like adding sauce to your dish. Its possible that most gardeners have not considered partnering annual salvias like Saucy with perennial salvias like Golden Delicious pineapple sage, the Mysty Blue salvia, or the supercharged Black and Bloom. If you find yourself in this group, break the mold and discover some of your most artistic garden creations. Soil preparation plays a critical role in your success with Saucy salvias which, by the way, do have a chance for a spring return in zones 9 and 10. The soil should be fertile, organic-rich and very well drained. In almost every instance they are most successful in raised beds with a prepared landscape mix, an application of a controlled release fertilizer, and a good layer of mulch. The fertilizer is important, as it gives the plants a quick jump start. Those grown in large mixed containers have the best of all worlds with their mixes, perfect drainage, and regular feeding. Maintenance is minimal and should you cut them back, they will quickly reward you with fresh new growth and blooms. I am deliriously happy with the number of pollinators I see hitting on the blooms. There is nothing quite like going to a shopping center, or restaurant, where they have a mixed container of flowers and hummingbirds and butterflies are putting on a show. Of course, the only thing that can compete with that is to have your own blooms off your porch, patio or deck where you can watch your backyard habitat with friends and family while cooking steaks on the grill. Our grandparents grew up with this species but none have ever been like Saucy. In my area of Georgia, I probably have 90 days before the first frost. This is a long time that I have to freshen up a tired garden or mixed container with some of these salvias. You may have the same amount of days or even more. If not just make sure to keep in mind to add Saucy salvias to you your list of must-have plants next spring. Youre likely to find Saucy Red and Saucy Wine in the Southern Living Plant Collection.

They have to sit there silently and take a licking. But theyre not stupid. Many grow armor of sorts „ though how deer can devour rose thorns without leaving a trail of blood has always puzzled me. More insidiously, some plants produce chemicals that either assault your skin or make you sick if you eat them. As a result, many pose risks to those who stumble across them, whether in the garden, the city park or on a trail. Alfred Goossens, a retired flavor chemist, has a Virginia home with a view of the Blue Ridge Mountains near a popular hiking trail, Old Rag. I joined him and Don Hearl, both Virginia Master Naturalists, in a stroll of Goossenss 14-acre property. Along a tree line just a few steps from the front door, they pointed out a suite of potentially harmful plants, namely horse nettle (poisonous fruit), Virginia creeper (skin irritant), poison ivy (enough said) and pokeweed (toxic from head to toe). If you took people outside like this, they wouldnt know what was poisonous or nonpoisonous,Ž Hearl said. They would just refer to them as weeds.Ž Anyone who has spent time in the garden has probably had a run-in with poison ivy. Even savvy gardeners can miss seedlings that sprout amid other vegetation. Other toxic plants are not as common or as firm in the minds eye, but still can cause real problems. Earlier this year, Goossens and other members of the naturalists Old Rag Chapter identified a tuber that a resident had dug up and eaten, thinking it was a sweet potato. It was actually the large fleshy taproot of the pokeweed, which is highly toxic and put the man in intensive care and close to death before the naturalists (and his doctors) came to the rescue. Ive long considered the fact that although the garden is full of potentially lethal vegetation, including daffodil bulbs and colchicums, this doesnt play out in mass poisonings. You dont see yards littered with corpses. But maybe Ive been too complacent. Christopher Holstege, medical director of the Blue Ridge Poison Center, tells me that the center received 7,182 calls between 2007 and 2017 pertaining to plant exposures. Most are handled over the phone, some callers need immediate medical attention, and some require lifesaving intensive care. He recounted the case of a 26-year-old man who had gone foraging for ramps, the wild leek delicacy, and picked and ate the foliage of the false hellebore instead. The leaves are similar „ broad with long folds „ but false hellebore (Veratrum viride) is decidedly not for eating. (Nor is it related to the popular garden hellebore or Lenten rose.) After just four bites, the patient became ill „ in the hospital his vital signs showed a heart rate of 42 beats per minute (bpm). You dont need to be a medical pro to know thats alarmingly sluggish. Thankfully, he recovered.Weeding out the most toxic kinds of vegetationVirginia Master Naturalist Alfred Goossens examines the ripening, poisonous berries of the horse-nettle growing on his property in Syria, Va.

DEAR ABBY: About 20 months ago, after I found out I was pregnant, I was abandoned by the father of my child. My mother had passed away a month before. So I was grieving, shocked to discover I was pregnant and devastated when I was left for another woman. I went through my pregnancy alone, gave birth alone and am now a single mother. While my child and I are blessed -I have a good job, Momma left me some money that has helped me buy a home, and my friends are supportive -my heart is broken. My son's father pays child support, but his priority is the woman he left us for. Everyone tells me I need to be the bigger person, accept the situation and give my son a chance to know his father. I understand all of that, but I am so angry. I feel rejected and debased. I cry all the time. I try to keep a positive face for my son, but sometimes I break down. My son's father and his lady make fun of me and aunt how happy they are together while I am alone raising my child. The woman enjoys pointing out how hard I have it and how alone I am. My son is my joy and I love him dearly, but why am I not allowed to be angry at his father and that woman? Why must I be the one who accepts the hurt and difculty, while my son's father and his lady have their cake and eat it, too? I would really appreciate your thoughts. -HURT MOMMA IN THE EAST DEAR HURT MOMMA: While you have every right to be angry, has it occurred to you that you may not only be grieving for your mother, but possibly be suffering from postpartum depression as well? Discuss this with your doctor and ask to have your hormone levels checked. It might also benet you to join a grief support group. Your ex-boyfriend and his "lady" may appear to have their cake and eat it, too, but it's not true. They have each other, and both of them appear to be miserable people. For the sake of yourself and your son, please stop allowing them to make you miserable, too. You have your beautiful child, and endless possibilities lie ahead if you will open yourself to them. If necessary, nd a licensed therapist to help you let go of the negative and get your priorities straight again. Once you succeed in doing this, you'll be ne.DEAR ABBY: We used to display a wide variety of family pictures on our living room walls. Before repainting, we took them down. Because some of them include our children's former and current relationships, we can't decide which ones we can comfortably "redisplay" without offending anybody. We have remained on good terms with former in-laws and the children from prior relationships, but the "new" and the "old" never speak of each other, much less enjoy seeing pictorial reminders hanging in our home. Some of our grandchildren are blood relatives; others are not. Our children have moved on to other relationships. This is OUR home, but we don't want to offend any of the people we welcome into it. Any advice? -PICTURING IT IN ARIZONA DEAR PICTURING IT: You are a sweet and sensitive person. Talk to your children. Ask how they and their children would feel if you "edit" the collection, and which ones they would prefer you retire. And be sure to offer the outtakes to them rather than toss them.

YESTERDAYS SOLUTION BRIDGE CRYPTOQUOTE HOROSCOPES DIVERSIONS Single moms frustrations, pain boil to the surface TODAY IN HISTORY HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR SATURDAY, SEPT. 15, 2018:This year you have very little to distract you, unless you set up your life for chaos. You will want to avoid people who cause upheaval or make you alter your course when you dont want to. If you are single, you will have a wonderful and special year where you could meet someone who becomes signicant to your life. Be open to different types of people. If you are attached, the two of you could experience a newfound depth. You might seek to complete a mutual goal for your relationship. SAGITTARIUS encourages you to be more adventurous in your life.ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Fortunately, you dont mind being tossed into the limelight. Your vision and interpretation will be valued. You also delegate well, which you will do when you feel the timing works. You see the benet of allowing someone else to take the lead. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) A loved one goes out of his or her way for you. You clearly see how much you mean to this person; you feel cared about and you enjoy his or her attention. When you detach and eye the big picture, you will understand what is really being offered. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Others seek you out. You might feel cared about on a level that you can barely acknowledge. Emotion and intensity could mark your interactions. One person could become unusually controlling; he or she needs your time and attention. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) You might have very little choice but to defer to others. Be gracious, even if one party displays a need for control. You do not need to play into this. You hear a lot of news just by hanging out. Do your best to keep the other party talking. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) You want your freedom, even if your choice is to be with one special person. You can be charming and fun when you let loose. Your sense of direction will take you down a new path. Others might be reluctant to follow, but eventually some will join you. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) You could be overwhelmed by everything that is going on. Stay light and easy with a domestic issue. You might not want to commit to a solution unless one is deemed necessary. Maintain an appropriate stance, yet enjoy a childs naughtiness. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) You no longer can hold back from expressing your feelings about a hot-topic issue. Honestly, you do not have the type of control you desire, but you must express your thoughts on the matter in question. Accept an invitation to be spontaneous and free. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Your words make a difference to those in your immediate circle. You cannot avoid a neighbor who has some news to share with you. You might decide to stay mum about what you hear. Reach out to a relative who is often unavailable. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22DEC. 21) Others cant seem to get enough of you, and as a result they clamor for your attention. Say no to someone who attempts to manipulate you purely for his or her own benet. Use caution with your funds. Count your change with care. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22JAN. 19) Keep reaching out to a loved one in order to have a long-overdue conversation. This person will be delighted by your efforts. Maintain a low prole, if possible. You could be happy just watching a ballgame or playing a game of cards. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Dont worry about what others think you should do. You might care a little, as some people seem to have good ideas that you hadnt considered. A conversation could be so off the wall that you can barely even respond. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Emotions run high around you. Whether you know it or not, you might be the most popular person or the one everyone is looking for. You have a way of bringing others together. Friends appreciate your efforts. A project comes to completion. | Saturday, September 15, 2018 C5 TODAY IS SATURDAY, SEPT. 15, the 258th day of 2018. There are 107 days left in the year.
