[AP PHOTO/ANDREW HARNIK] Staff ReportLEESBURG … A pedestrian was struck and killed by a car just before midnight Saturday along a mile stretch of U.S. Highway 441 in Leesburg long known for pedestrian deaths.According to Leesburg police, the collision occurred at 11:56 p.m. at U.S. 441 and Indian Trail. Investigators determined that a green, 2002 Jeep Liberty driven by John Berrey, 29, of Summerfield struck a pedestrian, who was then struck a second time by a red, 2007, Chevrolet Impala passenger vehicle driven by Skylar Smith, 19, of Summerfield. The pedestrian was pronounced deceased on scene.The pedestrian has been identified by police, but investigators are not releas-ing the victims identity until they notify family members.Anyone with further information is encouraged to contact Leesburg Police Department at 352-728-9860.This stretch of U.S. High-way 441 in north Leesburg has been plagued by accidents for years. Between early 2015 and early 2017, the mile stretch of highway between Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and the U.S. Highway 441/U.S. 27 split racked up 272 accidents, including five fatalities. Four of the dead were pedestrians. Along this stretch, the road twists, cars speed, impatient motorists look for a sliver of daylight to dart from parking lots or side streets, pedestri-ans cross in the middle of the highway rather than at cross-walks, and you frequently see them standing in the middle of turning lanes waiting to dash across to the other side.Miserable Mile claims another life By Ainur Rohmah and Shibani MahtaniThe Washington PostJAKARTA, Indonesia „ The death toll from twin disasters on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, a major earthquake and the tsunami that followed, jumped to more than 800 on Sunday as rescue workers were only just starting to take stock of the wreckage pulling out survivors buried under the rubble from a collapsed hotel, treating patients in tents and racing to get food and water to survivors.Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesman of Indonesias National Disaster Management Agency, said in a news confer-ence Sunday that most of the deaths were in the badly hit city of Palu, with just 11 deaths reported so far from the town of Donggala. Rescuers have been trickling into Palu, but Dongg-ala and some of the surrounding regions remain largely cut off, with poor communications.Officials continue to fear the worst and have braced for a fast-climbing death toll that could eventually be in the thousands.The death is believed to be still increasing since many Death toll soars past 800 in IndonesiaRescuers evacuate an earthquake survivor by a damaged house Sunday following earthquakes and tsunami in Palu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia.

He led them to his camp and gave them food, water and a place to warm up. Another camper called for help. The Associated PressBy Tim DahlbergThe Associated PressLAS VEGAS „ A small bouquet of dried flowers was wedged inside the pad-lock on Gate 5 of the killing ground that was the Route 91 Harvest Festival one recent day, the only visible reminder that it was the site of the worst mass shooting in modern American history.A peek inside the chain-link fence, covered in green sheeting to keep out prying eyes, revealed a sprawling patch of asphalt and little else. Towering above were the gold windows of the Mandalay Bay, where a gambler spent the last min-utes of his life in room 32-135 taking the lives of 58 others in a meticulously planned slaughter.Around Las Vegas, there are scattered remembrances of the horrors of that night a year ago.Almost every week, theres another court-ordered release of police bodycamera videos that provide flashbacks to the night the gunman turned the fun of the glittering Las Vegas Strip into a nightmare of death and despair. And lawsuits by MGM Resorts International to force survivors to give up their right to sue the casino company that owns Manda-lay Bay opened fresh wounds over the summer.But the Vegas StrongŽ T-shirts and car stickers have largely been put away. The original hand-made white crosses for each victim have long since been taken away from the Wel-come to Fabulous Las VegasŽ sign to eventually reside in a museum in neighboring Henderson, though some new ones were brought in for the anniversary.There has been no closure, at least officially. Authori-ties say they will likely never be able to determine what it was that turned a high-limit video poker player into a mass murderer.But in a city that has always looked ahead relentlessly, theres not a lot of time devoted to reflec-tion. Even while pausing to remember the victims on the anniversary of the shooting, Las Vegas moves forward.A lot of the feeling among people is more, Lets move on,Ž said Pauline Ng Lee, a community activist and chairwoman of the Nevada Republican Mens Club. We dont have a lot of long traditions here. You can see it with buildings. Casinos come up, casinos get knocked down. People tend to look forward, not back.ŽIndeed, a look out one side of the high windows of the Mandalay Bay shows the normal sight of dozens of tourists lined up to have their pictures taken in front of the Welcome to Las Vegas sign. A glance to the left draws the eye to the vacated and somber site of the shoot-ing on 15 acres of valuable Las Vegas Strip land that for the foreseeable future simply cannot be used for anything.Owner MGM Resorts International has no plans for the venue and no timeline for making any decisions.Meanwhile, on the other side of the hotel, work goes on around the clock on a new $1.9 billion stadium that will be the home of the NFLs Las Vegas Raiders beginning in 2020. Its a reminder that Las Vegas moves on like it always has, through the good times and the bad.Its not that the city has forgotten the shooting or the victims. The white crosses adorned with pictures of those killed were moved recently for the anniversary to the rotunda of the Clark County government building, accompanying a heart-wrenching display of paintings of each person. The victims are portrayed as surviving relatives wanted them to be. One young woman is wearing a Philadelphia Eagles jersey; a man is strumming a guitar. Theres a police officer in his uniform, and a man smiling while enjoying a day on the beach.Gathered together for one night to enjoy country music they are now linked together in eternity.Theres a makeshift memorial garden downtown, just around the corner from an adult bookstore, where painted stones and pictures hung in newly planted trees tell stories of lives lost.Rest easy with my grammy, Beebra,Ž read the inscription on one framed picture of a smiling woman and her young children.On a recent day, a few workers were digging a hole for a 3,000-pound rock with the victims initials. A permanent memorial will eventually be located else-where „ no word from MGM on what will happen to the shooting site itself „ but has yet to be planned and is likely years away.Everybody has a story about how a community came together in the wake of the shooting. Strangers loaded victims in the back of their pickup trucks and rushed them to the hospital. Doctors and nurses rushed in to try to save the wounded, and people „ including play-ers from the citys newly minted NHL team „ lined up by the hundreds to donate blood. Residents dug deep into their pockets to donate to the victims and their fam-ilies .It was, former Las Vegas Review-Journal gossip col-umnist Norm Clarke said, reminiscent of the response to the 1980 MGM Grand fire that killed 85, when there was a community outpour-ing for those killed.As with the fire, most of the shooting victims were tourists. Only five were from the Las Vegas area.But Las Vegas itself is a city that largely is a collection of immigrants from around the nation and the world, many with no ties to each other before the shooting seemed to bring them together, at least temporarily.Lee, the community activ-ist, remembers neighbors in gated communities who had done little but nod at each other over the years gather-ing to talk afterward. And a ceremony at the first Golden Knights hockey game a few days later had anyone who watched shedding tears.Soon, though, Vegas StrongŽ largely morphed into Vegas BornŽ with the hockey team. Its improbable run into the Stanley Cup Final became more of a story than the way the team helped bring a city together to heal. And through it all, the fun never really stopped on the same Strip where the massacre unfolded. A city that attracts 42 million visitors a year kept the welcome mat out following the shooting as tourists drank, partied and threw the dice inside bustling casinos.Its taken the Mandalay Bay some time to recover its footing, and tourism numbers are down slightly this year. But Las Vegas reinvention continues with the new stadium and the resumption of construction at two big hotel projects.And now, as the popular local Twitter feed Vital Vegas asked: How do you commemorate something you dont want to think about?A lot of people have probably put it out of their minds,Ž said Steve Sisolak, a Clark County commis-sioner who in the hours after the shooting spearheaded a victims fund that raised millions and is now running for governor. The anniver-sary is going to bring up a lot of feelings, good and bad.ŽThe city will mark the anniversary with a string of events in the days sur-rounding Oct. 1. And at 10:01 p.m. „ the time the shooting began „ the lights on gleam-ing marquees will dim along the Strip.Its not closure, but it is one more tribute in a way only Las Vegas can give.Then, as always, the city that never sleeps will move forward once again.Las Vegas pauses but looks aheadIn this Sept. 21 photo, the Mandalay Bay hotel and casino re” ects the last sunlight of the day along the Las Vegas Strip in Las Vegas.

DailyCommercial.com | Monday, October 1, 2018 A3 LOCAL & STATETom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 tom.mcniff@dailycommercial.comNEWS BRIEFS By Payne Ray pray@dailycommercial.comTAVARES … Lake County Commissioner Leslie Cam-pione will reach out to the Historical Society informally to see if the group is willing to forge a compromise on the controversial decision to bring a statue of a Con-federate general to the Lake County History Museum.Campione suggested that she could start working with the museum to put together an advisory board to give community members a more direct line of com-munication to the museum.Campione also said that she wanted the statue of Confederate Gen. Edmund Kirby Smith, which is still on course to arrive at the museum, to be displayed in a way that is sensitive to com-munity concerns.The statue of Smith has been a huge source of divide in Lake County for the past few months, and the County Commission has been approached twice to do something about it.Commissioners agreed that Campione could reach out, but Commissioner Wendy Breeden said she still thought the statue was not the best thingŽ for Lake County.The proposal wasnt an official agenda item, and Campione said she wouldnt be operating in a liaison role like Commissioner Tim Sullivan.She said that asking fellow commissioners first was her way of making sure she wasnt overstepping any boundaries.Campione commits to statue talksCampione It was an opportunity,Ž Rodriquez says. I took it. It looked really cool, and it will look great on a resume.Ž [LINDA CHARLTON / CORRESPONDENT] By Linda Charlton CorrespondentThere will be a familiar face in the Macys Thanks-giving Day Parade this year … at least one familiar to those in the tight-knit Leesburg High School band community.Tim Rodriquez of Fruit-land Park, who is one of the bands two drum majors, has been accepted into this years Macys Great Amer-ican Marching Band. The Great American, along with the New York City police marching band, are the two recurring bands in the parade, which this year has a total of 12 marching bands.Rodriquez will play clarinet in the 224-piece audition-only band, which traditionally tries to include players representing all 50 states, plus the District of Columbia.Rodriquez submitted a video audition, and he is one of four players in Flor-ida accepted into this years group. The other three are from Jacksonville, Naples, and West Melbourne.The one Florida band slated to perform is Park Vista High out of Lake Worth. Players and color guards audition to get in, then pay for the privilege. Drum majors (who also pay to participate) are selected at specific drum major camps over the summer. Rodriquez attended one of those camps, and thats how he heard about the Macys band.It was an opportunity,Ž Rodriquez said. I took it. It looked really cool, and it will look great on a resume.ŽHe confesses that he has not actually seen a Macys Parade before, though hes always heard about it.Now he has to pay $1,675 to the music management company by October 10, and a little over $300 for air fare. He and his family have raised a little over $1,000 so far, and one generous Lees-burg faculty member has donated $100.Rodriquez does have a part-time church job, run-ning sound during Sunday service, and is currently seeking additional employ-ment. But he still needs some help in order to meet the financial obligations for the parade.Leesburg band director Gabriel Fielder has offered the Leesburg band parents organization as the umbrella group to receive donations on behalf of Rodriquez, as any donations to the band parents can be deducted on taxes.Heading to Times Square Leesburg student selected for Macys Thanksgiving ParadeBy Andrew Pantazi GateHouse MediaPassing Marsys Law, the most well-funded political effort in Florida today, will either be the greatest expansion of victims rights in Florida history or upend the criminal justice system as we know it, depend-ing on who you ask.Florida law already calls for protecting victims rights, both in state statute and in a brief clause of the state Constitution. That law includes the right to be notified as a case progresses, the right to have a voice in prosecution and the right to restitution.While Marsys Law, also known as Amendment Six, would offer many of those same pro-tections, it also includes a more expansive set of rights that cause some lawyers to believe it would hurt defendants, create loopholes, and add unexpected costs.Supporters say enshrining these rights, as lengthy as they are, in the state Constitution would show that victims rights are more of a pri-ority than they are today, and that these rights need to be more uni-formly respected across the state.The proposal will be on the Nov. 6 ballot for all Florida voters. It must receive 60 percent of the vote to go into effect. When the amendment was first discussed at the Constitutional Revi-sion Commission, it was met with loud opposition, even from groups like the Florida Police Chiefs Association. But Will Marsys Law help or create problems? APOPKAAuthorities: 3 deputies injured after carjacking, 2 crashesAuthorities said three Flor-ida sheriffs deputies were injured after a man stole a sheriffs office patrol vehicle and crashed.Lt. Kim Montes of Florida Highway Patrol said the 24-year-old suspect was speeding in a stolen pickup outside Apopka on Sunday morning when he crashed into a parked Orange County sheriffs SUV.Montes said Deputy Michael Myles went to check on the driver, who then stole the deputys SUV and drove off and was involved in a second crash.Sheriffs office spokes-man Jeff Williamson told the Orlando Sentinel the carjack-ing occurred after Myles and the suspect struggled.Williamson said three dep-uties and two other people were hurt in the series of inci-dents and treated at hospitals.Montes said charges are pending against the driver, whose name wasnt immediately released. JACKSONVILLEFlorida K-9 named Fang killed by carjacking suspectAuthorities in Florida said a police dog was shot and killed while chasing an armed car-jacking suspect.The Jacksonville Sheriffs Office said in social media posts that the dog named Fang died early Sunday. The sheriffs office said the suspect was apprehended by another K-9 at the scene and arrested. The suspects name was not immediately released.According to a report by The Florida Times-Union, the dogs human partners were not injured and did not return fire.Fang was a 3-year-old German shepherd that performed both patrol and bomb-detection duties.According to the sheriffs office, Fang patrolled special events and football games and captured some of the most dangerous criminalsŽ in Jacksonville.In Florida, killing a police dog is a felony punishable by up to five years in prison. PALM BEACHPossible red tide closes beaches on Atlantic coastAn airborne irritant has closed at least six beaches in one county along Floridas Atlantic coast.According to The Palm Beach Post, lifeguards and local officials worry the beaches could be affected by the same red tide that has caused massive fish kills on Floridas Gulf coast. The Florida Fish and Wild-life Conservation Commission was sampling the waters off Palm Beach County.Beachgoers began complaining about respiratory, skin and eye irritations at the beaches on Saturday. By Sunday, many lifeguards were wearing masks to protect against any irritant exposure.The symptoms are similar to problems caused by the toxic algae bloom known as red tide, a natural occur-rence that happens due to the presence of nutrients in salt water and an organism called a dinoflagellate. DAVIEPolice: Man on balcony shoots, kills puppyPolice said a Florida man on a balcony shot and killed a dog with a pellet rifle. The puppy named Princess was being walked by its owner Saturday night near the Davie apartment building.According to the South Florida Sun Sentinel, an off-duty police officer driving toward the building saw a man on a balcony with a rifle and called 911.Staff ReportTAVARES „ Manufacturing everything from seaplanes to fishing boats, Lake County is home to a wide array of businesses creating one-of-a-kind products sold both locally and globally.

In a statement Friday, Sea-World San Antonio senior veterinarian Steve Osborn said Tyonek is eating fish and interacting normally with the other nine beluga whales at the Texas park.A year ago, Tyonek was stranded as a month-old calf after his mother abandoned him or died.

(The president of the association didnt return a request for comment.)We hope this is going to encourage more victims to have confidence that we can prosecute the case without subjecting them to harassment or intimidation,Ž said Tampa State Attorney Andrew Warren. The states not a neutral arbiter. The state represents the people.Ž Still, the Florida Bar crimi-nal law section „ a committee of the states top prosecutors, academics, defense attorneys and judges „ has opposed the changes. The executive coun-cil voted 29 to 3 to oppose the law, an unusual level of una-nimity for the diverse group.Law section President David Barksdale, a Jacksonville defense attorney, said that my personal concern „ not speaking on behalf of the Bars Criminal Law Section „ is that Marsys Law erodes the core foundation of the criminal justice system: that a prosecution is between the state and an accused citizen, not a contest between two private citizens. Our Florida Constitution and law already do a great job of protecting crime victims.ŽJennifer Fennell, a spokes-woman for Marsys Law for Florida, objected to that take: What currently exists in the U.S. Constitution is nothing and what exists in the Florida Constitution is a single sentence thats ambiguous and left up for interpretation.ŽState Sen. Lauren Book, herself an assault survivor, has been one of the efforts most visible endorsers. I know what its like to be a victim of a violent crime and not have the same constitutional rights as my perpetrator. It is terrifying knowing you may not be notified of important developments in your case, that you may never be given the chance to speak in court, and that your privacy may be compromised.ŽWhile public defenders are unanimous in their opposition to the amendment, prosecutors are split. Some state attorneys, like Tampas Warren or Miamis Katherine Fernandez Rundle, have vigorously supported the measure, yet others denounced it.I do not believe it is productive or will accomplish anything for victims,Ž said Gainesville State Attorney Bill Cervone. I think it is a nice-sounding buzzword that nobody in the criminal justice system thought we needed, not prosecutors. I dont think I need some wealthy person from California telling us we dont know what were doing and trying to buy it into our Constitution like theyre trying to do so nation-ally. A lot of people are afraid to say that because youll be labeled anti-victim, but thats baloney. Weve always advocated for and expanded victims rights legislatively for decades.ŽWhile Marsys Law activists say victims merely want the same rights as defendants, Cervone said the fact the current system favors defendants is a feature, not a bug. The way our criminal justice system works, the fact it may be skewed to a defendant, thats been there since the beginning of the country.ŽSo far, no political commit-tee has raised or spent as much as Marsys Law for Florida, which has raised $30 million all connected to California billionaire Henry Nicholas. Nicholas has pushed efforts to pass similar state Constitutional amendments across the country, starting with California in 2008. He has said the effort started after his sister was murdered in 1983. He himself has been arrested multiple times including last month when he was arrested in Nevada on suspicion of drug trafficking. The end goal, activists say, is an amendment to the U.S. Constitution.Nicholas committee has already spent about $28 mil-lion on advertising in Florida, according to its September campaign filing.Some opponents of the measure „ like St. Petersburg State Attorney Bernie McCabe „ have called it a solution looking for a problem,Ž since Florida law already includes expansive rights for victims. But victims have said that prosecutors arent respecting those rights.I am not a solution looking for a problem. I am a husband missing his bride,Ž said Michael Liles, the 62-year-old execu-tive director of Jacksonvilles Justice Coalition whose wife, Debbie, was murdered last year. Liles said a Jacksonville prosecutor ignored his objec-tions to scheduling a hearing on what Liles said would have been his 42nd wedding anni-versary. We are about to go to our 19th hearing for which Ive never been notified of the first one. By statute, we are entitled to be informed, to be pres-ent and to participate. But the truth of the matter is no one is assuming the responsibility of that notification, so it doesnt happen.ŽHe has attended all of the hearings and learned directly from the court when the next date would be.State Attorney Warren said that Florida is lagging behind the rest of the country in ensuring victims rights.Ž Six states that have already passed similar versions of Marsys Law, though Montanas supreme court struck it down there. Some have experienced unintended consequences. LAWFrom Page A3I would not consider this an official designation, but rather our board saying if you are willing to work on this Leslie, go forthƒŽ Campione said.Campione also confirmed the advisory board she suggested at the meeting is still only hopeful speculation.She intends to speak to the museum curator, Bob Grenier, within the next few weeks,Ž in order to start working on the committee.Campione believes the best solution would be to have two committees, one for the statue and one to design and seek out exhibits highlighting Lake Countys African-American population.There are people with much to offer in this regard, many who lived through these times and their stories need to be documented,Ž Campi-one said. And in addition to gathering recommendations from various regions of our county, there has to be the right balance between stories of hardship and those of suc-cess, community spirit, unity and friendship, and individual and collective achievement.ŽShe said the timeline for the formation of these groups is some time in the next three or four months, given holidays and the difficulty she sees in bringing people together over the issue.I intend to start working on things I can work on right away,Ž she said.The proposal by Campione arises from a meeting two weeks ago, when the commission heard complaints and pleas from both sides of the statue issue. At that meeting, Campione responded with a similar call for compromise.Previously, commission-ers said they would be telling the museum the statue was unwanted, but no such state-ment was ever sent.Campiones new proposal aligns more with the path to compromise the commission favored at the September 11 meeting. CAMPIONEFrom Page A3 inspire previously unenthusi-astic conservatives.In Indiana, for example, the Republican challenger to Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly, who announced opposition to Kavanaugh following the tes-timony, released a video over the weekend saying the effort to derail Kavanaugh tells you how Democrats rollŽ and calling it a real eye-opener for folks across IndianaŽ that Donnelly takes his instructions from [Democratic leader] Chuck Schumer.ŽIn heavily pro-Trump West Virginia, where Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin III remains undecided on the nomination, the president used a Saturday night campaign rally to laud Kavanaughs brilliant and really incredible character, quality and courage.Ž In a nod to the pressure from both sides on Manchin, Trump added: A vote for Judge Kavanaugh is also a vote to reject the ruth-less and outrageous tactics of the Democrat Party.ŽAnd in Texas, the Democratic challenger in the 33rd Congressional District near Austin mentioned the Kavanaugh battle at a Saturday campaign event as she told her story of how hard it was to come forward after she was assaulted while serving in the military.Normally, I say that these national-headline, political-pundit things arent what people in this district pay attention to,Ž MJ Hegar said during an appearance in Taylor, Texas. This is an exception. Everywhere I went, I saw people glued to TVs, like theyve been when weve had serious crises in this country.ŽThe controversy has splashed over a midterm landscape that leaders of both parties have seen as generally favorable for Democrats, with Trumps unpopularity driv-ing a shift in some parts of the country, particularly suburbs, that voted for Republicans in 2016. Polls had already shown that Kavanaugh was an unusually unpopular Supreme Court nominee, though he has enjoyed overwhelming sup-port from Republicans.How the issue plays out in the Nov. 6 elections will depend on the drama that will unfold in the coming week including whether the FBI turns up any new evidence in its probe and what happens if and when Kavanaughs confirmation is put to a Senate vote. If centrist Republican Sens. Jeff Flake of Arizona, Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska vote in favor, that could influence Democratic fence-sitters run-ning in conservative states, including Manchin and North Dakotas Heidi Heitkamp.At stake, at least in the battle for the Senate, is the power to block or affirm Trumps Supreme Court nominees perhaps even the current one, if Kavanaugh is defeated and an alternative cannot be confirmed before years end. Some House Democrats have vowed that, if they win the majority, they would launch an investigation of a Justice Kavanaugh, with impeachment as a potential outcome.Whats certain is that the emotional and cultural debate about Kavanaugh and his accuser has already inflamed the national divide over Trump, himself accused of sexual misconduct by mul-tiple women, that was already driving the cycle.

Photos on his Twitter page show bodies lined up in body bags, as police begin the grim task of identifying them and reporting the deaths to families.The dead, he said, either drowned when the tsu-nami hit or were killed by collapsed buildings and rubble. Victims are being buried in mass graves, but all victims will later be buried properly,Ž Nugroho said.A 7.5-magnitude earth-quake triggered a massive tsunami on Friday evening, which crashed into Palu, Donggala and the surrounding settlements. Officials on Sunday shared chilling videos and photos on social media of land liquefactionŽ in the wake of the disaster, where the soil turns into something akin to quicksand and drags buildings along with it.In Palu city, rescue teams were evacuating almost 50 people trapped in the ruins of the Roa-Roa Hotel, a 50-room, eight-story hotel that collapsed after the earthquake. Sev-eral were pulled out alive, and rescuers could hear the screams and cries of others throughout the night, and lights shining from cellphones underneath the rubble. A correspondent for a local newspaper said on his Facebook page that at least three other hotels with guests in it have also collapsed. Heavy equipment able to move rubble was on its way to the city.Traumatized victims, many of whom were sleeping in tents and being treated for injuries outside their homes, continued to be shaken by aftershocks. At least 200 have hit the area since the quake, according to local officials. Whenever there are aftershocks, people have become panicked, running away with some yelling Tsunami!,Ž said Radika Pinto, World Visions Area Manager in Palu.Hungry survivors have been looting unstable shopping centers for food, clothing and water. Adding to the chaos, local media has reported that a prison wall collapsed, setting free hundreds of prisoners inside.The Head of Palu Peni-tentiary, Adhi Yan Ricoh, told Indonesian magazine Tempo there were 560 inmates at the prison and more than half escaped.At that time, the elec-tricity went out, and there were only a few officers. Moreover, they also pan-icked and tried to save themselves,Ž Adhi said.Nugroho, the disaster agencys spokesman, said a Hercules C-130 plane was deployed to the area to evacuate the hordes of people racing to get out of the city. Water, he added, was an urgent need.The water turned turbid, and cannot be con-sumed. Clean water is an urgent need for the people of Palu,Ž he said.Thousands of homes, hotels, shopping centers, hospitals and other public facilities were damaged, Nugroho said. Hospital patients in Palu are being treated outside the build-ing to avoid the danger of potential aftershocks.International relief agencies were just starting to reach the area on Sunday, after hours-long overnight drives through landslide-prone areas and badly damaged roads. Dozens of calls made to residents and hotels in Palu were unsuccessful, an indication that widespread communications outages continue there.Even as relief efforts were underway, the focus remained on why none of the areas residents seemed to be warned of the impending disaster, and a tsunami alert that was quickly dropped by the Indonesian geophysics agency. The high number of casualties, Nugroho admitted, was caused by a limited early warnings, a lack of knowledge of the impending devastation and limited shelter and spatial planning.ŽThere is no sound of siren [or] sign of the tsunami. Many people dont know the threat (of the tsunami) so they are still doing activities on the beach,Ž he said, including hundreds gath-ered there for a beach festival.The head of Indonesias geophysics agency, Dwikorita Karnawati, said her agency immediately issued a tsunami warning after the earth-quake before the tsunami occurred, reaching a max-imum height of 6 meters, or about 20 feet. The agency estimated that the tsunami would occur at 5:22 p.m. local time, after it announced 15 minutes earlier that an earthquake had occurred and could trigger a tsunami. It ended the tsunami warning at 5:36 p.m.aggressive behavior and being present at parties where gang rapes occurred.Trump himself tweeted late Saturday that he wanted the FBI to inter-view whoever they deem appropriate, at their discretion.ŽSanders said on Fox News SundayŽ that the White House is not micromanaging this pro-cessŽ but also said an open-ended probe into Swetnicks claims and whether Kavanaugh may have misled lawmakers in his Senate Judiciary Com-mittee testimony would not be acceptable.The Senate is dictating the terms. They laid out the request, and weve opened it up,Ž she said, adding, This cant become a fishing expedi-tion like the Democrats would like to see it be.Ž Conway said on CNNs State of the Union,Ž Its not meant to be a fishing expedition.Ž She added that who will be interviewed was up to the FBIŽ in its expanded background investigation into Kavanaugh.The remarks Sunday added to the swirl of public confusion over the parameters of the FBI inquiry and who is setting them. The order to the FBI was signed by Trump but has not been made public, while the White House has sought to lay respon-sibility for the details on the Senate.The only official description of parameters has come from Senate Judiciary Com-mittee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, who said Friday the FBI probe would be no more than a week long and would be limited solely to cur-rent credible allegationsŽ against Kavanaugh. Grassley and other sena-tors have provided few other specifics, and a committee spokesman declined to comment after Trumps tweet Sat-urday endorsing a broader approach.Thursdays riveting hearing, featuring testimony from California professor Christine Blasey Ford about her allegations that Kavanaugh assaulted her when both were high school students in the early 1980s, prompted]several wavering Repub-lican senators to demand a more thorough federal probe of the alleged incident.At the hearing, Kavanaugh angrily and categorically denied assaulting Ford or any other woman. Two others, Swetnick and Debbie Ramirez, have publicly come forward to accuse Kavanaugh of other sexual misconduct.Ramirez alleges that Kavanaugh, as a Yale University freshman, drunkenly exposed himself and shoved his penis in her face in front of a group of classmates, according to an account she gave to the New Yorker. Her attorney said Saturday that the FBI has contacted Ramirez about an interview and that she plans to cooperate.Swetnicks accusations, brought forward in a sworn statement by lawyer and potential 2020 presidential candidate Michael Avenatti, have been treated much more gingerly, including by Democrats, due to a lack of corroboration.Senate Democrats have put special emphasis on having the FBI interview the people Ford says were present for the party where the alleged assault took place par-ticularly Mark Judge, the high school classmate of Kavanaughs who Ford says was in the room for the incident. Judge has said in written statements that he does not recall the incident; Senate Republi-cans declined to call him to testify. Two others said by Ford to have been present for the party have also said they do not recall it.Many Democrats have called for the FBI to take a broader look at whether Kavanaugh may have misled senators by minimizing his carousing behavior in high school and college or by mischaracterizing entries in his high school yearbook that could indicate a pen-chant for drunken and misogynistic behavior.Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., speaking on CNN, said Kavanaughs claims that he had never blacked out or suffered any memory loss while drinking doesnt quite make sense to meŽ and said she hoped the FBI would interview friends to determine whether that was credible.She added that the FBI could also interview high school friends of Kavanaughs to determine whether his innocent explanations for portions of his yearbook entry are accurate.Ive never heard that the White House, either under this president or other presidents, is saying: Well, you cant interview this person; you cant look at this time period; you can only look at these people from one side of the street,Ž she said. I mean, come on.ŽSen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a member of the Judiciary Committee, said the parameters of the probe are based on the wishes of three wavering colleagues Sens. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska for a limited review.ŽThey wanted . the FBI to talk with the witnesses that Dr. Ford named,Ž he said Sunday on ABCs This Week.Ž They want to talk to Ms. Ramirez, because she refused to talk to the committee. Theyre going to Mark Judge Did you ever see Brett Kavanaugh drug women or engage in gang rape? I think thats going to be the focus of it.Ž DEATH TOLLFrom Page A1 Local transportation officials and police have noticed. Theyve identi-fied at least three major factors that contribute to this chaos.One is that there are more businesses butting up against the road than along almost any other segment of 441, each with its own parking lot and entrance. Its true. Sure, there are dozens of businesses astride U.S. 441 by the mall, for instance, but so many of them are clustered in strip malls with a single entrance, or in some cases you can only enter them through a side street off the highway.By comparison, there are roughly 80 curb cuts „ parking lot entrances and streets „ that empty onto U.S. 441 along this piece of highway.Another factor is the large residential popula-tion along the miserable mile. Nestled behind all these businesses are hundreds of homes and apartments, and their occupants frequently walk to nearby stores, sometimes across 441.The third factor: The traffic lanes in this stretch of U.S. 441 are a foot narrower than elsewhere. The U.S. Department of Transportation widened 441 through Fruitland Park several years ago, but they couldnt carry the effort through northern Leesburg because of all the businesses crowding up against the road.Traffic experts say these narrower lanes are supposed to calm traffic.

A8 Monday, October 1, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comBy Maria Danilova The Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Choking back tears, she testified that he sexually assaulted her. Defensive and angry and choking back tears, he swore that he did not.The dramatic Senate testimony last week by Christine Blasey Ford and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh came as Education Secretary Betsy DeVos considers new guidelines that could drastically change the way allegations of sexual violence are investigated on college campuses.Brett Sokolow, a lawyer who heads an association of sexual harassment investigators on cam-puses, said his colleagues closely watched the hear-ing and may use it for future trainings."If this was a student, would I believe them, would I not?" Sokolow said. "Who comes out being credible?"DeVos has argued that the policy put in place under President Barack Obama is skewed against the accused. She is expected to issue new rules in the near future.At stake is whether schools should require higher standards of evidence when handling complaints and whether both parties should have access to that evidence. Also under review is the use of mediators and the possibility of the accuser and the accused cross-examining each other.DeVos' new guidelines are expected to address whether schools should have to investigate as soon as they are aware of alleged misconduct or only after a student files a formal complaint.Many victims of sexual violence never take that step. Ford didn't, and only acted decades later when she learned that Kavana-ugh was on a short list for the Supreme Court.Advocates point to the Larry Nassar sexual assault scandal at Michigan State University and say that victims are shocked and unwilling to relive their traumatic experience. They say it should be the school's responsibility to investigate."It is the debate that we are having about how to handle these allegations on high school and college campuses," said Mike Petrilli, president of the conservative Thomas B. Fordham Institute.A Senate vote on Kava-naugh's nomination was delayed for a week so the FBI could investigate after GOP Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, a pivotal vote, called for further investi-gation. A few hours earlier on Friday, Flake had said he would support Kavanaugh, a federal appeals court judge.Ford, a California psy-chology professor, has accused Kavanaugh of pinning her to a bed while he was intoxicated, trying to remove her clothes and placing a hand over her mouth as she tried to yell for help. Ford says the incident took place more than 35 years ago when they both were in high school.Kavanaugh adamantly denies the accusations and says he has never sexually attacked any one. He accuses Demo-cratic senators of seeking to derail his nomination at all costs.The Department of Education declined to comment Friday about DeVos' plans for revising the sexual assault rules. But when issuing tempo-rary guidance last year, DeVos said she was look-ing for a more balanced approach."Every survivor of sexual misconduct must be taken seriously. Every student accused of sexual misconduct must know that guilt is not predetermined," she said in September 2017. "These are non-negotiable principles."Sejal Singh with the advocacy group Know Your IX, which refers to a federal anti-discrimina-tion law, said the Senate testimony should compel DeVos to boost protections for the victims of sexual harassment, not the perpetrators."Betsy DeVos should consider how to interrupt sexual violence when the people who commit it are in school and before they are nominated to the Supreme court," Singh said.But Petrilli predicted that DeVos will now see more reason to roll back the Obama guidance and bolster the rights of the accused. In conservative circles, "the sympathy right now is very strong with the concern that some men are wrongly accused," Petrilli said. "This is an administration that cares about its base."A student may choose whether to report an assault to police or to have it investigated by a university under Title IX. Some students choose not to report attacks in part because police and the courts require higher standards of evidence. Students also may feel more comfortable dealing with university investigators than with police following a trauma.Kavanaugh case unfolds as DeVos readies sexual assault ruleIn this June 5, 2018 “ le photo, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos testi“ es during a Senate Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations hearing in Washington.

Consider the ever-growing number of drive-byŽ lawsuits filed against businesses caught barely out of compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Or the fast-talking pitchmen who pour into Florida following a big storm „ convincing unwary, shell-shocked homeowners to sign contracts that funnel their insurance benefits through a third party and wrest away their control over home repairs. Every time lawyers find a handhold in consumer-protection laws, a few firms rush to exploit it for their own gain „ practically daring the state Legislature to raise the bar for all cases. Its a challenge insurance companies and businesses urge lawmakers to take up, and too often, the response is overkill. New laws strip consumers of protections that make it easier for them to challenge their own insurance companies when claims are wrongfully denied. Who suffers most? People with legitimate injuries, home damage or significant handicaps, who see their access to justice whittled away. Another growing problem has finally reached Florida communities. Law firms are flooding smallclaims courts with lawsuits under the states Personal Injury Protection law, many of them based on cases that originated in other parts of the state. That law „ known as PIP „ is meant to speedily resolve cases and pay benefits to Floridians who suffer relatively minor injuries in vehicular collisions. These people are the most vulnerable against big, well-funded insurance companies; often, policy holders cant afford to litigate over a denied claim that at most, is worth $10,000. So the Legislature tilted the rules in their favor, with a law that requires insurance companies to pay attorneys fees if they are sued for denying coverage and lose. The idea is to encourage insurers not to drag their feet when presented with a legitimate claim. Theres a new wrinkle, according to an investigation by the Daytona Beach News-Journal. People with legitimate (or in some cases, questionable) claims are heavily solicited by clinics and other medical providers, who convince them to sign agreements known as Assignment of BenefitsŽ or AOB. These providers tell their patients that if they sign an AOB, the clinic will take care of the paperwork.Ž Its a tempting offer for a fast-food worker with little knowledge of the court system. But opponents say its spawned a cottage industry of questionable clinics that claim the same course of treatment for almost all their patients „ regardless of actual injuries. The pain goes beyond the patients. The Palm Beach Post reports the states 25 top insurers have increased the cost of PIP coverage by as much as 54 percent. Every time, theres one clear and obvious winner: Everyone pays more in insurance premiums to make a handful of lawyers and vendors rich. Lawmakers cant ignore something this big. But the proposed remedies „ including a bill that would essentially end PIP, replacing it with a requirement that everyone carry coverage for bodily-injury liability „ could hurt responsible Florida consumers who are injured by uninsured motorists. The Legislature should go after this problem with a scalpel, not a chainsaw. One option, taking away the ability to sign AOB agreements, could reduce dubious claims without doing too much damage to consumers. Lawmakers should seek out other consumer-friendly ways to curb the greed, while protecting important rights.OUR OPINIONPut the brakes on PIP abuse Its time to say a positive word about a man who has been much-maligned by my media colleagues. Yes, President Donald Trump. Media fact-checkers have splashing around in their reported news that Americas 45th president has lied, distorted or made misleading statements more than 5,000 times since his inauguration. But because media critics love to lambast my colleagues for focusing only on the negatives, we want to begin today by focusing on an event where Trump proved he was demonstrably accurate in one of his earliest and most-ridiculed assertions. It was back on Sept. 24, 2012, when Citizen Trump, exploring his far-fetched notion of someday plunging into presidential politics, tried out what became his most famous road-tested future shtick before an audience of 10,000 at the late Rev. Jerry Falwells Liberty University in Virginia. The whole world is laughing at us,Ž Trump said. We just seem to have lost our edge.Ž That became his most reliable stump speech staple ever since. It didnt deter him when the late-night TV comics and my pundit colleagues made Trump their go-to punchline. When he wasnt saying it, Trump was tweeting it, as in this Aug. 9, 2014 tweet from @realDonaldTrump: We need a President who isnt a laughing stock to the entire World. We need a truly great leader, a genius at strategy and winning. Respect!Ž Now this: On Tuesday, Americas 45th president proved to the world the validity of that oldest Trump stump speech refrain … that the world is laughing at Americas leader. Standing in front of the United Nations General Assemblys iconic green marbled rostrum and walls, Trump was just one minute into what was supposed to be his most-serious diplomatic address, when he dutifully read aloud a line that was reportedly written for him by his staffs non-speechwriting hardline nationalist Stephen Miller. Miller, who has never been known for his politically attuned antenna, surely knew the line always won cheers at Trumps rallies. Now he was writing a speech proclaiming Trumps America would be standing up for itself and wouldnt be pushed around by globalization. Maybe he didnt think about whether or not this U.N. audience would be wearing those red Make America Great AgainŽ caps. He just apparently wrote it, and so Trump unhesitatingly read it: In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country.Ž But after reading that line in a subdued diplomatic manner, Trump detected an undiplomatic undercurrent of undisguised laughter rolling through the massive U.N. hall. It built as the translators finished their delayed renditions. More and more delegates … grasping the absurdity of Trumps campaignish claim … broke diplomatic decorum in a way U.N. veterans never before witnessed. They were laughing at … not with! … the present occupant of the job we had always called Leader of the Free World.Ž Or as we are choosing to spin it positively here, they were finally showing us what Citizen Trump long ago warned about. President Trump, surprised by the unmuted mirth, paused. His face evolved into that sheepish grin made famous by Jackie Gleason, every time he portrayed Ralph Kramden, the New York City bus driver, realizing another of his dumb schemes just backfired, bigtime. Then Trump sheepishly acknowledged the obvious: Didnt expect that reaction. But thats OK.Ž It was more than just OK. Continuing our most positive spin on Trumps U.N. moment, it was another historic first for Trump. This was the week Trump became the first ever U.S. president to get the whole world laughing at an American president. But this week may have even given Trump another First: On Wednesday, while presiding over a UN Security Council meeting, Trump said, without an elaboration (let alone evidence): Regrettably, we found that China has been attempting to interfere in our upcoming 2018 election coming up in November against my administration. They do not want me, or us, to win because I am the first President ever to challenge China on trade. And we are winning on trade. We are winning at every level.Ž It was a most pointed accusation … especially considering how reluctant Trump has been during his two years as president to condemn Russia and President Vladimir Putin (whom Trump seems to much admire) for their infamous 2016 efforts to help him win the presidency. Top U.S. intelligence officials have maintained Chinas 2018 interference is nowhere near as large as Russias this year. Perhaps Trumps latest First is that he may have just sparked a new round of uproarious international laughter … inside the Kremlin. Martin Schram is a veteran Washington journalist, author and TV documentary executive. Trump proves he was a truth-tellerThree days after he reportedly went to the White House to turn in his resignation, Deputy Atty. Gen. Rod Rosenstein is finally set to meet with President Trump on Thursday to discuss his continued employment. The right course for Trump is clear: He should tell Rosenstein to remain on the job. This might seem like counterintuitive advice. Rosenstein is probably the presidents second least favorite appointee at Justice „ the least favorite being Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions, who enraged Trump when he took the ethically imperative step of recusing himself from any investigation related to the 2016 presidential campaign, which he served as a Trump adviser. That set the stage for Rosenstein to take charge and name Robert S. Mueller III as a special counsel to investigate possible coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign, an inquiry Trump has denounced as a rigged witch huntŽ even as Mueller has scored a string of guilty pleas and the conviction of Trumps former campaign chairman. Rosensteins departure would clear the way for Trump to install a more pliable acting attorney general to supervise „ or possibly subvert „ Muellers investigation. So far, though, Trump has stayed his hand, possibly because removing Rosenstein would be viewed as a transparent attempt to obstruct justice by a president who has not only has sought to discredit Mueller, but has threatened to get involvedŽ in the Justice Departments operations. Circumstances changed dramatically last week, however. The New York Times reported that shortly after assuming his post last year, the deputy attorney general suggested that he secretly record Trump and discussed recruiting Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove the president. Rosenstein called the story inaccurate and factually incorrect.Ž Even so, alleged insubordination could give Trump a plausible pretext for getting rid of Rosenstein. That would be a disaster for the Mueller investigation and the Justice Department. Rosenstein isnt just Muellers protector; he has become a symbol of continuity and institutional integrity at Justice. Those qualities make it imperative that Rosenstein, an experienced prosecutor, remain on the job, despite this latest controversy. Its conceivable that the Mueller investigation could proceed unimpeded under the direction of another official. (The White House has suggested that if Rosenstein were to leave, Solicitor General Noel Francisco would assume that role, although there is some question about whether he would face a conflict because his former law firm represents the Trump campaign.) But even in the most optimistic scenario Rosensteins departure would be a disaster. Ominously, one of Trumps personal attorneys suggested Monday that if the deputy attorney general resigned, there should be a time out on this inquiry.Ž This is precisely the kind of outcome we should both fear and expect if Rosenstein is successfully pushed out of the way. Keeping Rosenstein on the job would be good for the country, but (as the president himself might ask), whats in it for Trump? Simply this: Rosensteins departure would be widely viewed „ including by many voters in the midterm elections „ as a blow to the impartial administration of justice and the principle that the president is not above the law.

Molinari won his singles match against Phil Mickelson, officially put-ting the winning point on the board for Europe and putting Mickelson in the record book for the most losses in Ryder Cup history.Then, Garcia won his match to set the record for the most career points in Ryder Cup history. It was like that all week.Europe produced stars old and new with a team that was as strong as ever.We got it right this week,Ž European captain Thomas Bjorn said. We never, ever looked toward their team about what they were about. We were about us as a team and what we do. ... Every-thing that this Ryder Cup was is what I think the Ryder Cup should be about for a Euro-pean team.Ž Mostly, its about winning.The final shot came from Alex Noren, who after conceding a short birdie putt to Bryson DeChambeau on the 18th hole, made a 40-foot birdie putt to win the match.Dominant Europe claims Ryder CupEurope team captain Thomas Bjorn kisses the cup as he celebrates with his players after the European team won the Ryder Cup on Sunday at Le Golf National in Saint Quentin-en-Yvelines, France. [ALASTAIR GRANT/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Mark LongThe Associated PressJACKSONVILLE, Fla. „ Blake Bortles threw two touchdown passes, including a 67-yarder to Donte Moncrief, and the Jackson-ville Jaguars used a dominant defensive performance to handle the New York Jets 31-12 on Sunday.Bortles ended up with a career-high 388 yards pass-ing, topping 375 yards for the second time in three games.He found T.J. Yeldon wide open for a 31-yard score in the second quarter and then beat a blitz with the deep pass to Moncrief down the sideline.Jags bounce backJacksonville Jaguars running back T.J.

Sitting in second place, all he had to do was follow race leader Martin Truex Jr. to the finish line.Instead, Johnson made the split-second decision to go for the win, attempting a pass Truex Jr. with two turns remaining on the new "roval" track. Johnson tried to go inside, but instead ran into Truex, causing a crash that cost Truex the win and knocked himself out of the playoffs. Ryan Blaney passed both drivers for the win."I wish I go could go back in time and let off the breaks a little bit back there and not take that opportunity, because the championship is what we are here for," Johnson said. "To fight all year and be that close to transfer..." When asked if he'd make the same decision again, Johnson said, "if I know the outcome was going to be that? No. I want to stay alive in the championship points. But I really felt like I could pull that pass off."Johnson later apologized to Truex's team and his fan base on Twitter, saying "everyone makes mistakes."Truex deliberately spun out Johnson's car after the race and was still irritated at him when he spoke about A mistake, and Jimmie Johnson playo s overRyan Blaney (12) drives past the wrecked cars of Jimmie Johnson (48) and Martin Truex Jr. (78) to win the NASCAR Cup series auto race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C., on Sunday [AP PHOTO/CHUCK BURTON] Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles (5) runs for 44 yards past New York Jets nose tackle Steve McLendon (99) and outside linebacker Jordan Jenkins (48) during the “ rst half on Sunday.

Nolan Arenado and the big-hitting Colorado Rockies at Dodger Stadium.October baseball is about to begin with Game No. 163 on Monday.Two tiebreakers on the same day for the first time in major league history. Both to divvy up divisions, too.Its interesting that base-ball is such a perfect game in some ways that it takes 162 to not decide anything,Ž Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon said.Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and the Cubs begin the doubleheader drama when they host Milwaukee for the NL Central crown. Later in the afternoon, Dodgers rookie Walker Buehler is set to start when Los Angeles faces Colo-rado for the NL West title. Theres a catch, though.All four teams are already assured playoff spots, either as a division champ or wild card. The Dodgers, Rockies, Brewers and Cubs knew that going into Sunday, the final scheduled day of the regular season, and then romped by a combined score of 48-5.So, it means this: These matchups are not one-and-done.Never before has a team that lost a tiebreaker got to keep playing. Bucky Dents pop-fly homer finished off the Red Sox in 1978. Matt Holliday slid home „ and maybe touched the plate „ to elimi-nate San Diego in 2007. David Price pitched Tampa Bay past Texas in 2013 to win the most recent matchup.This time, theyre all in. But, theres still a big difference between winning the division or going into the postseason as a wild card.The Brewers-Cubs winner gets to start the best-of-five Division Series at home on Thursday against the wild card winner. The Colorado-Los Angeles winner also begins the NLDS at home versus Atlanta.Tiebreakers to settle NL Central, NL WestMilwaukee Brewers “ rst baseman Jesus Aguilar, right, celebrates with teammates after the victory over Detroit, Sunday in Milwaukee.

He denies the allegations.Prosecutors say the attack was captured on security system video at Boykins home in Mansfield.The Seattle Seahawks released the 24-year-old Boykin from the teams practice squad shortly after reports of the attack surfaced.Its not Boykins first run-in with the law. He was arrested in Dallas last year on misdemeanor charges of public intoxication and marijuana pos-session, though the case was later dismissed. In 2016, he pleaded no contest to resisting arrest stemming from an incident shortly before the 2015 Alamo Bowl in San Antonio. He was suspended for that game and was sentenced to a year of deferred adjudication probation.SOCHI, RUSSIAHamilton wins Russian GP with teammates helpLewis Hamilton won the Russian Grand Prix and closed in on his fifth Formula One title, but hes not happy.Victory was handed to Hamilton by his Mer-cedes teammate Valtteri Bottas, who pulled over to let him through on orders from the team. Its never, ever in my whole life been the way that I wanted to win a race,Ž said Hamilton, who said Mercedes overrode his objections to the switch. Passing Bottas did not feel good.ŽHamilton cruised to victory after the switch and now leads Ferraris Sebastian Vettel by 50 points in the standings as both chase their fifth title. Even if Vettel wins all five remaining races, hes no longer guaranteed to beat Hamilton.Hamilton held off a challenge from Vettel at the start and overtook him after the German briefly got ahead at the pit stops, but by lap 25, he was again under serious pressure from Vettel. Soon the call came through.You need to let Lewis by into turn 13 this lap,Ž was the teams message to Bottas, who could have taken his first win this year. Seconds later, the Finn eased over to the side of the track.I assured Valtteri its not something I asked for, but its what the team feels is right to do. Its a very awkward position to be in,Ž Hamilton said. There are not many teammates who would do something like that.ŽIt was Hamiltons fifth win in six races and Mer-cedes third one-two finish this year.Team orders, as such coordinated passes are known, have been used for decades and are allowed under F1 rules. But they have a history of alienating fans who would prefer to see competi-tive racing.Mercedes strategist James Vowles defended the move by saying Hamilton had a small blisterŽ on his tire and could have fallen behind Vettel.LAS VEGASKnights continue healing process for Las VegasWith the city reeling from the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, Golden Knights defenseman Deryk Engelland delivered an emotional 58-second speech last October that continues to echo through Las Vegas today. Engellands address came days after the Oct. 1 massacre during a pregame ceremony honoring victims and first responders. It ended with the reassurances: Well do everything we can to help you and our city heal.ŽAs the one-year anniversary of the massacre that left 58 dead approaches, Vegas beloved NHL team remains very much a part of the healing pro-cess, true to Engellands words.Anything like that happens, you definitely want to keep helping the process of the healing,Ž Engelland said following a recent preseason game as the Knights prepared for their second season. I think last year was a good stepping stone and I think we can still do more this year.Ž The Associated Press

With stakes highest, Ohio State wide receiver Victor comes through in the clutchBy Ralph D. RussoThe Associated PressSTATE COLLEGE, Pa. „ Ohio State coach Urban Meyer spotted signs in practice recently of a breakout moment coming for Binjimen Victor.Quarterback Dwayne Haskins agreed with Meyer, saying Victor makes plenty of eye-pop-ping plays during the week. Offensive coordinator Ryan Day said the junior receiv-ers blocking was excellent against TCU two weeks ago and that alone made him worthy of continued opportunities at a deep position for the Buckeyes.Victor, a former fourstar recruit from Florida who has not yet lived up to the billing at Ohio State, provided what could turn out to be one of the big-gest plays of the season for the Buckeyes on Saturday night against Penn State. Victors reaching grab and swerving, tackle-breaking run for a 47-yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter quickly flipped a game that was going the Nittany Lions way, and sparked a 27-26 come-from-behind victory for Ohio State.I think its a defining moment for him,Ž Day said. I think when Ben made that play, there were guys on the sideline saying, Were going to win this game right now.ŽThe Buckeyes had fallen behind by 12 points with eight minutes left in front of a record crowd at of 110,889 at Beaver Stadium, and were in need of a fast response. Haskins bought some time and found Victor cutting over the middle, and then the 6-foot-4 Victor did the rest, cut-ting from the sideline back to the center of the field to finish up a play that make it 26-20 with 6:42 left.To be honest, I dont even know what hap-pened,Ž Victor said. There was somebody in my face. All I saw was green grass, and I just took off. I had to make a couple people miss, and that was it.ŽOhio State (5-0, 2-0 Big Ten) moved up a spot to No. 3 in the AP Top 25 on Sunday, and Penn State (4-1, 1-1 Big Ten) slipped to No. 11.On a team with lots of talented receivers, Victor is about fifth or sixth in line for the Buckeyes. He made only one other catch against Penn State, for 8 yards, and for the season has seven catches for 126 yards. Coming into the season, Victor had 27 catches for 413 yards with eight touchdowns, though most of his production has come in games Ohio State has won handily.Its not what Ohio State or Victor would have expected from a player who was considered one of the 20 best receivers in the country by most recruiting services coming out of high school.Meyer insisted the signs have been there for Victor to take a step forward.Hes been outrageous inn practice,Ž Meyer said Saturday night. That made it 17-10, the biggest Ryder Cup rout in 12 years.Two years after the Americans thought they had their Ryder Cup problems figured out, Europe reminded them Sunday which team practically has owned that shiny gold trophy for the last quarter-century.Europe now has won nine of the last 12. The Americans remain win-less away from home since 1993.And there wasnt much U.S. captain Jim Furyk could do about it.They played some great golf this week, and I take my cap off,Ž Furyk said. Thomas was a better captain and their team outplayed us. And theres nothing else more you can say. They deserved to win.ŽMolinari was just as good on his own as he was with Tommy Fleet-wood, and the best year of his golfing life some-how got better. Just over two months ago, he was posing with that silver claret jug at the British Open as Italys first major champion. This felt just as sweet because it was a trophy he shared with a team.This team has been incredible from the start,Ž Molinari said. We were determined to do the job. Nothing was going to stop us. And you saw it on the course.ŽIt was the most lopsided victory since consecutive 18-9 victories by Europe more than a decade ago when the Americans looked utterly lost. They formed a Ryder Cup Task Force after the 2014 loss. The idea was to build continuity and momentum, and it seemed to work when the Americans won at Hazeltine in 2016.Now, maybe its back to the drawing board.Lets be honest „ the European side played some exquisite golf,Ž Mickelson said.The same couldnt be said for Mickelson or Woods, two giants of their generation, both with losing records in the Ryder Cup.Mickelson didnt even play on Saturday and lost his matches on Friday and Sunday. He started the week by set-ting a record with his 12th appearance in the Ryder Cup, and it ended with 22 losses, a record by either side. At 48, he might not get another chance.I did not play well this year,Ž Mickelson said. This could very well, realistically, be my last one.ŽWoods was 0-4, the first time in eight Ryder Cups that he failed to contribute a single point. This was one week after he capped a personal comeback following four back surgeries by winning the Tour Cham-pionship, the 80th of his PGA Tour career and first in more than five years.But he looked like he lacked energy on the course and certainly in his speech over the last two days.Its disappointing because I went 0-4, and thats four points to the European team,Ž he said. And Im one of the contributing factors to why we lost the cup, and its not a lot of fun. Its frustrating because I thought we were all playing pretty well, and I just didnt perform at the level that I had been playing, and just got behind early in the matches and never got back.ŽBut this was more about the Europeans as a team, and they were tougher than ever on a course they know well.Trailing 10-6 going into the final day of singles, the Americans needed to put red points on the board early to build momentum. It never happened. Justin Thomas won the leadoff match over Rory McIl-roy but not until the 18th hole.Webb Simpson and Tony Finau, the lone bright spot among the wild-card picks for Furyk, won easily. Behind them, Woods was hanging tough against Jon Rahm and Dustin Johnson started to pull ahead of Ian Poulter.Theres always a moment where it looks like a spark of light,Ž Furyk said. When it was there for us, Europe played really well.Ž It wasnt there long.Rahm won two straight holes with pars to seize control. John-son hit into the water on the 13th during a fourhole slide that took him from 1 up to 2 down, a match Poulter wound up winning.Thorbjorn Olesen, who had played only one match the previ-ous two days, went 5 up at the turn over Jordan Spieth and won in 14 holes. Spieth is now 0-6 in singles matches in the Ryder Cup and Presi-dents Cup. Garcia was in tears.He played so poorly this year that he failed to qualify for the PGA Tours postseason. Bjorn picked him anyway, saying he was the heart and soul of the European team, and Garcia responded by going 3-1. His victory over Rickie Fowler gave him 25 points in a Ryder Cup career that began in 1999.I think that a lot of people thought that the Ryder Cup was over before it was played,Ž Garcia said. And I guess, unfortunately, they picked the wrong team.Ž DailyCommercial.com | Monday, October 1, 2018 B3 RYDERFrom Page B1 The pass to Moncrief was Jacksonvilles lone offensive highlight in an ugly second half. The Jaguars (3-1) had three turnovers that led to nine points for the Jets (1-3), who have dropped three straight.Jets rookie Sam Darnold was harassed early and often, getting sacked three times and nearly throwing three interceptions. Tashaun Gipsons pick was overturned by a holding penalty on the other side of the field, and Pro Bowl cornerbacks A.J. Bouye and Jalen Ramsey each dropped INTs that would have ended New Yorks scoring drives.The Jaguars allowed 178 yards and recorded a safety The Jets scored their lone touchdown following Yeldons fourth-quarter fumble, a 2-yard pass from Darnold to Jordan Leggett.Nonetheless, it was hardly the identity gameŽ the Jets had wanted.It was about what the confident Jaguars expected. They improved to 6-1 following losses in coach Doug Marrones two seasons.Jacksonvilles biggest concern coming out of the victory was the health of running back Leonard Fournette, who re-injured his strained right hamstring. Fournette missed the last two games while trying to get back to full speed, but tweaked it during his return.Bortles completed 29 of 38 passes, with an interception on a ball tipped at the line of scrimmage.Fournette ran 11 times for 30 yards before leaving the game for good.Darnold was 17-of-34 passing for 167 yards. The 1-2 punch of Bilal Powell and Isaiah Crowell combined for 26 yards on the ground. Bad blood?The Jaguars were upset about something, maybe a late body slam on receiver Dede Westbrook by Jets safety Jamal Adams. Mar-rone called for a 2-point conversion on the final touchdown, a strange deci-sion in a lopsided game. First sacksJets defensive lineman Leonard Williams and Jag-uars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue recorded their first sacks of the season. Williams took down Bortles in the second quarter. Ngakoue sacked Darnold on the last play of the first half.Bouye apologiesBouye had plenty to apologize for in the vic-tory. First, he took blame for Gipson missing out on his first interception of the season. Later, he dropped a sure pick that hit him in the hands. Key injuriesJaguars center Bran-don Linder was ruled out at halftime with a back injury. ... Jets cornerback Morris Claiborne left game with a stomach illness, and linebacker Josh Martin was ruled out with concussion-like symptoms. Up nextJets: host Denver next Sunday.Jaguars: play at Kansas City next Sunday. JAGUARSFrom Page B1the attempted pass."He just over-drove it and was never going to make it and used me as brakes and turned us both around," Truex said. "It (stinks), we could have raced side-by-side off the last corner for a win and that would have been cool. The fans would have been digging it, but instead we finished 14th and he's locked out of the playoffs. I guess that's what he gets."Now he will have to finish out the rest of the season contemplating what he called a "mistake." Johnson didn't hide the fact that he wanted to end a frustrating career-long 58-race winless streak."I was going for the win „ that is what I am here for," Johnson said. "If I didn't think I was better than him in that area I would not have taken that chance at executing that pass. When he left the inside lane open that is the preferred line and I felt like I had a real shot."Before he made the decision to pass, Johnson said he never thought about the chance of miss-ing out on the playoffs, feeling he was safely in."I thought we had a big enough cushion in points," Johnson said. "I thought we were still fine. I thought I was going to be OK."Instead, Johnson finished in a three-way tie with Kyle Larson and Aric Almirola for the 12th and final spot in the standings.He failed to advance on a tie-breaker."It's a bummer and it is not what we want by any stretch," Johnson said.Blaney said of Johnson's decision, "you make deci-sions every second behind a race car. And sometimes to will to win is just too high to sit there and finish second."Charlotte Motor Speed-way President Marcus Smith said the race lived up to the hype."What happened is not what I imagined or hoped for but it was incredibly exciting," Smith said of the dramatic finish. "The roar from the fans is the moment I know everybody would remember for this moment for a long time." NASCARFrom Page B1 Its a game where obviously its not do-or-die, but I think that its a must-win game,Ž Dodg-ers manager Dave Roberts said after a 15-0 rout in San Francisco.To win the game and get a couple days off, to host the Division Series is very important,Ž he said.The tiebreaker losers play Tuesday at the NL Centrals site to determine who advances. The AL playoff scenario is set.Oakland and the Yankees hold the wild-card game Wednesday night in New York and the winner goes to Boston on Friday. Defending World Series champion Houston opens the ALDS against Houston.Arenado homered twice and Charlie Blackmon hit for the cycle as the Rockies roughed up Washington 12-0. The Nationals decided to skip ace Max Scherzer and instead start Erick Fedde.Colorado, which has never won a division title since beginning play in 1993, will try to deny the defending NL champion Dodgers their sixth straight West title. German Mar-quez, who struck out eight straight batters to begin his last start, takes on Manny Machado, Justin Turner and their Los Angeles teammates.Its two of the best young starting pitchers in the big leagues pitching in this type of game,Ž Rock-ies manager Bud Black said. Its great.ŽThe Dodgers topped Colorado 12-7 in the season series. The Cubs are 11-8 against Milwaukee.At Wrigley, Cubs lefty Jose Quintana opposes Brewers right-hander Jhoulys Chacin. Quintana is a sharp 6-2 with a 1.60 ERA in 10 starts against Milwaukee.The Cubs put them-selves in this position with a 10-5 win at home over St. Louis. Milwaukee won its seventh in a row, trounc-ing Detroit 11-0.Expecting it to be fairly hostile tomorrow,Ž Yelich said. Any time we play the Cubs, its a hostile environment, especially in Wrigley Field. Its going to be a lot of fun. Were look-ing forward to it.ŽYelich is hitting .323 in his first season with Milwaukee, sealing the first batting title in Brewers history. He has 109 RBIs, tied with Arenado and two behind Javier Baez of the Cubs. Yelichs 36 home runs are even with Colorados Trevor Story and St. Louis Matt Carpenter, one behind Arenado.Since the tiebreakers are considered game No. 163 of the regular season, all stats Monday will count, giving Yelich a chance to win the first NL Triple Crown since Joe Medwick in 1937.

DEAR ABBY: My daughter, "Roxanne," married right out of high school. Eleven years later she nally woke up and realized the man of her dreams was a deadbeat. She has now been divorced as long as she was married, still looking for a good man who will love her and share a future with her. She's very sensitive, and I don't know how to tell her she needs to change her attitude about life in general, because no one wants to hear her recite all the bad things that have happened to her since childhood. She has always had a hard time letting go of small slights, from things that go on at work to as far back as school or sibling feuds. Roxanne is a wonderful, beautiful woman, and my heart breaks to think of her spending the rest of her life alone. Her dad and I won't live forever. I'm afraid if I tell her how I feel, she'll no longer want to conde in me and talk out her problems. (I am her sounding board.) I don't mind listening so she can get it out of her system, but how do I get her to let it go and move forward? -MOM WHO LOVES HER IN KENTUCKY DEAR MOM: You mean well, but it may be time to cut back on being your daughter's sounding board, which seems more like a dumping ground. Tell her you love her, but that repeating her unresolved grievances is getting her nowhere. She needs to talk to a licensed professional. Urge her to discuss these painful things with a therapist who can put her on a path to putting them behind her.DEAR ABBY: I am a junior in college, and I recently transferred from a two-year school to a four-year school. I have made a few friends, but their class loads are so heavy I don't get to spend much time with them. I, on the other hand, have a modest class load, so I have more free time, and I'd like to make more friends. I have considered joining one of the two sororities on campus. But I am worried that if I do I will have to change my personality and likes/dislikes in order to t in. Many of the girls at this school are very "cookie cutter," while I'm a more "eat the whole roll of cookie dough" type of person. I'm not concerned with how I look vs. how they look, but rather if I will t in. I want more friends and friendships that will last beyond school, but I don't want to lose who I am because I joined a sorority. Please help. -TO RUSH OR NOT TO RUSH DEAR TO RUSH OR NOT: Don't rush to rush. A sorority is not the only way you can connect with people. Membership in a sorority does not guarantee that you will have friendships that last beyond college. They are like any other living arrangement -people make friends with others they connect with. If you want to widen your social circle, the same thing can be accomplished by living in a dorm and joining clubs and special interest groups on campus.

Call Classieds Today!352-314-FAST (3278) HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR MONDAY, OCT. 1, 2018:This year you often experience an odd and/ or surprising sequence of events that forces you to detach and look at the big picture. You will discover many different perspectives as a result. If you are single, sometimes you experience some tension in making the choice of whether to continue dating someone. Root out the real issue before making a decision. If you are attached, you often might feel as if your sweetie and you dont share the same nancial perspective. You might even consider separate accounts. CANCER can be sensitive. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Expect the unexpected, and you will roll through what otherwise could be a difcult day. You might be somewhat depressed because of a close friends or family members response. You might wonder why this person is reacting so strongly. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) You have displayed the ability to push others to some strong reactions. You might not be aware that some of your actions are surprising to others. Someone at a distance could be closed off. Reach out to this person, as he or she might be depressed. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) As the day begins, you are on a roll. However, the afternoon could present some challenges, to say the least. You might want to sit on a situation until you get a stronger insight into what is happening. You could be quite uncomfortable. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) You might have been in an emotional frenzy until the afternoon, when you could feel more in control than you thought possible. Read between the lines with a friend who knows how to make life more exciting. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Use the morning to the max; you are favored during this period. Others appear to be more responsive than usual. Refuse to be cornered and pushed in any way. You might be more contained than you have been in the recent past. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) You feel as if too many people need your time and attention. Be willing to eye a situation more carefully, if need be. You could disappoint others and cause some upset. Honor your need to follow through appropriately. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Research a topic if you need to come to a certain conclusion. You might feel as if the answers come forward with ease. Use spontaneity to your benet, and shake up the status quo. Your diligence and thoroughness could exhaust you. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) One-on-one relating facilitates the possibilities that surround you. You could be surprised by what someone else really thinks and how he or she acts as a result. Use care when dealing with a loved one who could be hiding his or her feelings. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Remain in touch with what is necessary to have a long-overdue discussion. The unexpected is likely to occur when dealing with a work-related matter. A partner might be cranky and closed down. This person needs a mood change, not you! CAPRICORN (DEC. 22JAN. 19) You cannot make someone agree with you. Understand your limits, even if you want to pout as you accept your limits. Your spontaneity carries a twist that a child or loved one could react strongly to. Be ready for the unexpected! AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) You could have difculty settling down. You enjoy spontaneity and excitement. What works for you might not be OK with others. If you pull back, you will make others feel more relaxed. Be sensitive to your audience. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You understand the role of fundamental decisions, and might feel as if you need to reect on an emerging decision. You also could see a meeting stumble into negativity or silence. Events are likely to cause a change of direction.
