James Allison of the Univer-sity of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and Tasuku Honjo of Kyoto University learned how cancer can put the brakes on the immune system „ and how to release those brakes.Their work, conducted sep-arately during the 1990s, led to the development of drugs known as checkpoint inhibi-tors,Ž first used to treat the deadly skin cancer melanoma but now used for a growing list of advanced-stage tumors, including those of the lungs, head and neck, bladder, kidney, colon and liver.The drugs marked an entirely new way to treat tumors, a kind of immunotherapy that uses the patients own body to kill cancer cells. Up until then, the standard arsenal consisted of surgery to remove the tumor and radiation and chemotherapy to poison the cancer.The research was a landmark in our fight against cancer,Ž the Nobel Assembly of Swedens Karolinska Institute said in announcing the award. The two scientists will share the 9-million-kronor ($1.01 million) prize.Not all patients respond to this, but for the ones that do, it has made a huge difference to their lives,Ž Dr. Arlene Sharpe, co-chair of microbiology and immunobiology at Harvard Medical School, told The Asso-ciated Press.

A spontaneous spin-off dem-onstration produced a tense face-off between police and lin-gering protesters, capping a day of noisy and largely nonviolent demonstrations.The anniversary of the event that sparked Spains gravest political crisis in decades was marked by a fractured Catalan independence move-ment amid delicate talks on the regions future with the countrys the center-left Socialist government.

Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy said a state police investigation showed an inex-cusable and criminal disregard for human life from those who have a duty to serve him, pro-tect him and render aid.ŽShe said video of the incident was a critical part of the evidence.Ž The Associated PressBOSTONBIRMINGHAM, ENGLANDBy Niniek KarminiThe Associated PressPALU, Indonesia „ As officials began burying hundreds of dead in a mass grave Monday, thousands of survivors of a devastat-ing earthquake and tsunami converged on the airport of this heavily damaged Indo-nesian city and clamored to leave, saying there was little to eat and their homes were unsafe.The confirmed death toll of 844, mostly from the city of Palu, is expected to rise as authorities reach areas that were cut off by the disaster. The magnitude 7.5 earth-quake struck at dusk Friday and generated a tsunami said to have been as high as 6 meters (20 feet) in places.Search-and-rescue teams combed destroyed homes and buildings, including a collapsed eight-story hotel, for any trapped survivors, but they needed more heavy equipment to clear the rubble.Many people were believed trapped under shattered houses in Palus Balaroa neighborhood, where the earthquake caused the ground to heave up and down violently, said disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho.In the citys Petobo sec-tion, the quake caused loose, wet soil to liquefy, creating a thick, heavy mud that caused massive damage. In Petobo, it is estimated that there are still hundreds of victims buried in mud,Ž Nugroho said.Residents who found loved ones „ alive and dead „ over the weekend expressed frus-tration that it took rescue teams until Monday to reach Petobo.Desperation was evident across Palu, a city of more than 380,000 people on the island of Sulawesi.About 3,000 residents flocked to its airport, trying to board military aircraft or one of the few commercial flights, local TV reported. Video showed some of them screaming in anger because they were not able to get on a departing military plane.We have not eaten for three days!Ž one woman yelled. We just want to be safe!ŽNearly 50,000 people have been displaced from their homes in Palu alone, Nugroho said, and hospitals were overwhelmed.The Indonesian air force confirmed that a Hercules aircraft carrying an unspeci-fied number of survivors was able to leave Palu for South Sulawesis capital of Makassar.Indonesian President Joko JokowiŽ Widodo authorized the acceptance of international help, Nugroho said, adding that generators, heavy equipment and tents were among the most-needed items. The European Union and 10 countries have offered assistance, including the United States, Australia and China, he said.We will send food today, as much as possible with several aircraft,Ž Widodo told reporters in the capital, Jakarta, adding that a supply of fuel was also set to arrive.Hundreds of people were lined up for fuel at gas stations across Palu, with waiting cars snarling traffic amid neigh-borhoods with fences painted with the red and white colors of the Indonesian flag.Groups of children, some smiling but others with anx-ious expressions, stood in the middle of roads holding boxes for cash donations. Signs were displayed along roads, saying We need FoodŽ and We need support.Ž Another asked about the whereabouts of their local political leader.Three days after the powerful waves struck, the coastline at Palu remained strewn with rubble and a few brightly col-ored cargo containers poking out of the water. Those build-ings that still stood near the water were ruined shells.A heavily damaged mosque was half submerged, and a shopping mall was reduced to a crumpled hulk. A large bridge with yellow arches collapsed.The city is built around a narrow bay that apparently magnified the force of the tsunami as the waves raced into the tight inlet. Nugroho said water was reported as high as 6 meters (20 feet) in places.Rescuers searching a col-lapsed building Monday night were able to remove 38-year-old Sapri Nusin alive from the rubble.Indonesian TV showed a conscious Nusin talking to his rescuers from the National Search and Rescue Agency, known as Basarnas, as they worked by flashlight. He was carried away on a stretcher, although his condition was not known.Elsewhere in Palu, Edi Setiawan said he and fellow residents rescued five children and four adults, including a pregnant woman. His sister and father, how-ever, did not survive.My sister was found embracing her father,Ž he said. My mother was able to survive after struggling against the mud and being rescued by villagers.ŽOn Sunday night, a 25-year-old woman was rescued Sunday evening at the toppled Roa-Roa Hotel, according to the National Search and Rescue Agency, which released photos of her on a stretcher.Novry Wullur of Indonesias search and rescue agency said Nurul Istiharah, 15, managed to survive after being trapped inside her house after it collapsed. Her mother and niece were dead next to her, and she was submerged in water up to her neck and was in danger of drowning before her legs were finally freed. She was being treated for hypothermia.The official death toll of 844 was released by Nugroho on Monday, an increase of only 12 from the previous day, with nearly all from Palu. The regencies of Donggala, Sigi and Parigi Moutong „ with a combined population of 1.2 million „ had yet to be fully assessed.Officials dug a trench 10 meters by 100 meters (33 feet by 330 feet) in Palu and began laying the dead in brightly colored body bags side by side.Local army commander Tiopan Aritonang said 545 bodies would be brought to the grave from one hospital alone.The trench can be enlarged if needed, said Willem Ram-pangilei, chief of Indonesias National Disaster Mitigation Agency.This must be done as soon as possible for health and religious reasons,Ž he said. Indonesia is majority Muslim, and religious custom calls for burials soon after death, typically within one day.Local military spokesman Mohammad Thorir said the area adjacent to a public cemetery can hold 1,000 bodies. All of the victims, coming from hospitals, have been photographed to help families locate where their relatives were buried.Video showed residents walking from body bag to body bag, opening the tops to check if they could iden-tify faces.Quake survivors clamor to ee cityA man walks by houses damaged Monday following a massive earthquake and tsunami at Talise beach in Palu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia.

A student tipped school staffers that the girl brought the knife to school and showed it to him. He said it was hidden inside a stuffed toy in her backpack. When she was summoned to the principals office, she produced the toy but there was no knife inside. She denied bringing a weapon to school. A search of defendants backpack revealed another stuffed animal, which was opened at the seam. Located inside this stuffed animal was a kitchen knife with a black handle with an approximate 5-inch fixed blade.Ž The girl then admitted bringing the knife to school and showing it to students.

Hyde III, 37, was a master manip-ulatorŽ who never worked, whose family supported him lavishly, and who killed the beautiful mother of his two children because he was addicted to drugs, and because she threatened to leave him unless he got help for his addiction.This is the story prosecutors laid out for six jurors Monday who are trying Hyde for sec-ond-degree murder. But the defense team laid out a dif-ferent theory: He was insane.People are entering my property at night with night vision [devices],Ž Hyde told Lake County sheriffs deputies, referring to his 50-acre property near Groveland, according to defense attorney Gregory C. Denard. Theyre using mind-control devices on me.Ž He was getting closer and closer to madness,Ž Denard said. That madness finally exploded on June 23, 2016 when he killed his girlfriend of 12 years, Bobbi Wheeler, in a house on the Mattioda Road property. She was shot on the top of her head while on her knees in front of a washer and dryer with a 9 mm handgun, then four more times with the handgun in the right and left shoulder. He then retrieved an AR-15 rifle and shot her over and over again -24 times -until putting a garbage bag on her head and telling her mother that she was hurt,Ž according to a sheriffs report. He told detectives in an hour-and-45-minute inter-view that he thought she was poisoning him. He also said he thought someone was shooting at him through a window. Hyde seemed to have it made. His mother purchased the property for $700,000 after inheriting money from her mother. The property was to be a paradise for the children, now ages 9 and 11. Murdering monster or mentally ill?Freedom Riders make trek to gain release of convicted murdererBy Linda Charlton CorrespondentWith three horses and a 5-month-old colt, the five men and one woman of the Free Leonard Peltier Ride 2018 were an instant hit with the children at the Native American Holiday Powwow this past weekend.But the six were not there at Dade Battlefield to just give free horse rides. They were there to drum up sup-port for their efforts to help Native American activist, artist and convicted mur-derer Leonard Peltier regain his freedom. The 74-year-old Peltier has been in federal custody at Coleman Correctional Institution for 42 years. The 1,500-mile trip from Minnesota, much of it on horseback, was a gesture of support for Peltier. It was an effort to do something for the aging activist before he dies. The routine of the freedom riders was two horses and two riders at a time, riding in pastures whenever possible, and trailering the horses when safety concerns dictated. The six riders hail from various parts of South Dakota, and all are members of the Seven Council Fire of the Lakota. They started out from Mankato, Minnesota and arrived in Coleman 58 days later, on September 21. They held a rally in front of the penitentiary the follow-ing day but were not able to see Peltier because none of them are on his official list of visitors.The next phase of their trip will take them to Washington, D.C., where they hope to ride all the way to the courthouse where Peltier is scheduled for a clemency hearing on November 1. On the last mile of their journey they will be joined by members of the World Peace Coun-cil. They also hope to gather enough free-Peltier petition signatures that they will be allowed to present them to officials. The riders picked Mankato as the starting point because it is the site of the largest mass hanging in U.S. history … 38 Sioux were hanged in 1862, on orders from President Lincoln, for the crime of leaving their reservation to hunt for food. Peltier is serving two consecutive life sentences for the 1975 deaths of two FBI agents in a mass shootout on tribal land in South Dakota. Peltiers supporters claim that ballistics test evidence, never shared with the defense during trial, shows that the fatal bullets could not have come from the weapon that prosecutors say Peltier was using, and that the lead wit-ness against him later said she was intimidated by the FBI into lying for them.The two agents were wounded in the shootout, but the fatal bullets were fired at close range. They were executed. The 1975 shootout was in itself an indirect outgrowth of the 1973 armed standoff at Wounded Knee, with activists protesting the poisoning of water sup-plies from uranium mining on one side, and tribal lead-ers and federal agents on the other. A journey for freedomThe six freedom riders on Sunday at Dade Battle“ eld State Park in Bushnell. [LINDA CHARLTON / CORRESPONDENT] Wici Tokabiyanke, also known as Runs Before Them, is one of the six Freedom Riders who arrived in Sumter County a little over a week ago. The riders ultimate objective is to free Leonard Peltier, whom many in the Native American community consider to be a political prisoner. Peltier is currently in Coleman penitentiary serving two life sentences for murder.

The fire caused extensive damage to the apartment residence. FIREFrom Page A3The rear of a badly charred home on East Grove Street in Eustis. [EUSTIS POLICE DEPARTMENT] Wheelers mother, Dezra Wheeler, even bought into the idea, obtaining permits and buying a double-wide mobile home for the land for about $100,000. Hydes mother, Wanda, and her daughters were excited. Wanda had moved to Florida from Augusta, Georgia, to take care of her mother when she became ill. Hydes garage was full of expensive motorcycle racing gear. He had everything except for one thing, a normal mind,Ž Denard said. Assistant State Attorney Dan Mosley, in his opening remarks to the jury, described Hyde as so manipulative that he sent a picture to his mother of him holding a gun to his head. She didnt reply, the suggestion being that she had seen this kind of act before. When detectives entered the blood-spattered home, they found crushed up oxy-codone that he had been snorting in a bedroom. Intoxication is not a defense to a crime,Ž Mosley said. What he did was murder.Ž Denard painted a picture of real mental illness that was never addressed, including Hyde shooting a pet Doberman in the bed-room of the house. Hyde became obsessed with the idea of people using drones to spy on him, especially after a neighbor sued, saying the mobile home violated a community deed restriction.

He said the three level parking structure (two levels covered and one open-air levelon top) would add about 488 spaces at a cost of about $7 million to $8 mil-lion, or approximately $17,000 per space. We would go up (levels)and that would meet and surpass the citys needs long term,Žhe said.At the workshop, G3 asked the city to commit to a property where a parking garage could be built.This has been a can that has been kicked down the road for a long time,ŽJake Guenthersaid.In the end, council members remained open to G3sideas and suggestions butwere not ready to commit the money or a location.Your analysis to me is very helpful. A parking garage, if done appropriately and if it aesthetically blends with Mount Doras expectations, is one that is interesting to me,Ž Council-man Cal Rolfson said.Rolfson said he also realizes that if the city ends up building two surface lots, the cost could run toabout $3 million versus spending the additional money for a garage.I certainly like surface parking. The problem is it doesnt solve the problem as far as I can tell,Ž Rolfson said. Wed be spending $3 mil-lion, give or take, for inadequate parking and still have the park-ing problems and still have the complaints and still have the concerns and still be faced with, in some cases, public outcry and wed be looking at it again.Ž At the work session, no deci-sions were made, but both parties agreed to future discussions on the matter.On Monday, Guenther said he expects to meet with City Man-ager Robin Hayes this week.

[LINDA CHARLTON / CORRESPONDENT] By Hyung-Jin KimAssociated PressSEOUL, South Korea „ North and South Korean troops began removing some of the land mines planted at their heavily fortified border on Monday, Seoul officials said, in the first implementation of recent agreements aimed at easing their decades-long mili-tary standoff.The demining comes amid resumed diplomacy over North Koreas nuclear weapons pro-gram after weeks of stalemated negotiations. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is to visit Pyongyang, North Koreas capital, this month to try to set up a second summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.On Monday, South Korean army engineers with demining equipment were deployed to the border village of Pan-munjom and another frontline area called Arrow Head HillŽ where the Koreas plan their first joint searches for soldiers killed during the 1950-53 Korean War.The troops began removing mines on the southern part of the two sites. Later Monday, the South Korean military detected North Korean soldiers engaged in what it believed was demining on the northern part of the sites, a South Korean defense official said on condition of animosity, citing department rules.The official refused to provide more details. North Koreas state media didnt immediately confirm its reported demining.At Arrow Head Hill, where some of the fiercest battles occurred during the Korean War, Seoul officials believe there are remains of about 300 South Korean and U.N. forces, along with an unspecified number of Chinese and North Korean remains.The Korean War left millions dead or missing, and South Korea wants to expand joint excavations with North Korea for remains at Demilitarized Zone areas. The Koreas remain split along the 248-kilometer (155-mile) -long DMZ that was originally created as a buffer zone at the end of the Korean War. About 2 million mines are believed to be scattered in and near the DMZ, which is also guarded by hundreds of thou-sands of combat troops, barbed wire fences and tank traps.Mines dislodged by flooding and landslides have occasion-ally caused deaths in front-line areas in South Korea. In 2015, a land mine blast blamed on North Korea maimed two South Korean soldiers and pushed the Koreas to the brink of war.The agreement to clear mines, the first such effort since the early 2000s, was among a package of tension-easing deals struck by the Koreas defense chiefs on the sidelines of a leaders summit last month in Pyongyang. Aiming to reduce conventional military threats, they also agreed to remove 11 front-line guard posts by December and set up buffer zones along their land and sea boundaries and a no-fly zone above the border to prevent accidental clashes.South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Monday the military deals will end all hostile acts on land, sea and sky between South and North Korea.Ž In a speech marking South Koreas 70th Armed Forces Day, Moon also called for a stronger national defense, saying peace can continue only when we have power and are confidant of protecting ourselves.ŽMoon, a liberal who aspires to improve ties with North Korea, is a driving force behind U.S.-North Korean nuclear diplomacy. Critics of his engagement policy have lam-basted the recent inter-Korean military deals, saying a mutual reduction of conventional mili-tary strength would weaken South Koreas war readiness because the Norths nuclear program remains largely intact.I think its the worst-ever South-North Korean agreement that made a concession in our defense posture before (North Korean) denucleariza-tion is achieved,Ž Shin Wonsik, a former vice chairman of the Souths Joint Chiefs of Staff, said last week.Many experts say the fate of inter-Korean deals can be affected by how nuclear nego-tiations go between the United States and North Korea. Past rapprochement efforts were often stalled after a standoff over the Norths nuclear ambi-tions intensified.After provocative tests of three intercontinental ballistic missiles and a powerful nuclear weapon last year, North Korea entered talks with the United States and South Korea earlier this year, saying its willing to deal away its expanding nuclear arsenal. Kim Jong Un has subsequently held a series of summits with U.S., South Korean and Chinese leaders and taken some steps such as dis-mantling his nuclear test site.2 Koreas begin removing DMZ mines to ease military tensionsIn this on Sunday, Sept. 30, 2018 photo, military guard posts of North Korea, right top, and South Korea, left bottom, are seen in Paju, at the border with North Korea, South Korea.

Instead, elementary stu-dents usually experience isolated incidents of teas-ing, which occasionally go too far.Bullying is repetitive,Ž Sneed said, clarifying that most children no longer behave harmfully once they realize they have harmed someone.Sneed, who has worked as an educator and admin-istrator for 27 years, said that while bullying isnt as common in elementary schools, it is a problem they seek to address early.According to Sneed and Groveland Elemen-tarys Dean of Instruction Reanna Alaniz, sweeping shows of solidarity such as Mondays blue-outŽ are just as important at ages before the height of bully-ing as they are during those years.Early awareness is really the key to preventing it through high school,Ž Sneed said. At this age, some stu-dents fear speaking out. Theyre not sure of their voice,Ž Alaniz said. That shows them its OK to have a voice.ŽAlaniz also said that when students are bullied, it impedes confidence and creates self-esteem issues that can hurt academic performance and social development.Alaniz and Sneed said their school employs character educationŽ lesson plans created to teach a different lesson in character-building each month. Octobers plan is based on the word respect, and teachers are using hands-on lessons to teach students what it means to respect people.Because of the districts efforts to address bully-ing, many of those lessons are available to every teacher in the county right now.The Parent Advocacy Coalition for Educational Rights National Bully-ing Prevention Center has pages of activities designed to help schools prevent bullying, and Lake County Schools has worked to draw internal attention to those resources.Sebrina Dillon-Banks, the administrative coordinator for Lake County Schools Prevention Programs and Alternative Education, said theyve been using PACERs resources for years and have found consistent success.STOMP Out Bullying is a newer commitment, but one which gives them a quick and strong start to the month.Along with providing resources to teachers, Lake County Schools is participating in another color day on Oct. 24, Unity Day, which asks that people wear orange.

A year later, he announced he no longer needed treatment.Allison, 70, who was in New York hotel for a scientific meeting, said at a news conference that the Nobel committee evidently had trouble reaching him to break the news. But his cellphone lit up with a call from his son at 5:30 a.m., when the names of the winners were released.And soon, there were people beating on my door at 6 in the morning with Champagne,Ž he said.At a news conference in Kyoto, Honjo, 76, told how a member of his golf club once walked up to thank him for the discov-ery that was used to treat his lung cancer.He told me, Thanks to you I can play golf again,Ž he recalled. That was a blissful moment. A com-ment like that makes me happier than any prize.ŽScientists had been trying for a century to harness the immune system against cancer, but it was a struggle. Normally, key immune system soldiers called T cells seek out and attack invaders. But for poorly understood reasons, it was hard to rev them up against cancer.In an interview Monday, Allison said he wasnt trying to cure cancer but to understand how T cells work when, at the University of Cali-fornia, Berkeley, he was studying a protein named CTLA-4. He learned that the protein could put the brakes on T cells, creating whats called an immune checkpoint.ŽHe then created an antibody that blocked the proteins action „ in other words, it released the brakes so the T cells could do their job.Working separately, Honjo discovered another protein, called PD-1, that also hampers T cells abil-ity to attack cancer, but in a somewhat different way.Allisons research led to development of the drug Yervoy, approved in 2011 after studies showed it extended the survival of some patients with latestage melanoma. A few years later, developers created drugs that release the PD-1 brake Honjo dis-covered „ Keytruda and Opdivo, now commonly advertised on TV.Allison said the biggest challenge with immunotherapy now is to learn why it helps some patients but not others „ and how to combine it with traditional therapies to improve outcomes and reduce side effects.Its a great emotional privilege to meet cancer patients whove been successfully treated with immune checkpoint blockade. They are living proof of the power of basic science,Ž he said in a statement.His research also inspired the name of the Checkpoints, a musical group of cancer research-ers for which Allison plays harmonica.The Nobel in physics will be announced Tuesday, followed by the award for chemistry on Wednesday and the peace prize on Friday. The prize in economics will be announced next Monday.No Nobel in literature is being given this year because the Swedish Academy, the body that selects the winner, has been in turmoil after sex abuse and financial scan-dal allegations.

A6 Tuesday, October 2, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comThe sunrise ceremony kicked off a day of memo-rials, prayer services, blood drives and dedications to commemorate the lives lost in the Oct. 1, 2017, shooting. The giant casino marquees were set to go dark in unison Monday night with the names of the victims to be read shortly after.At a midday evangelical prayer vigil at city hall, a trio of California friends who are survivors of the shoot-ing „ Jann Blake of Menifee, Linda Hazelwood of Ana-heim and Michelle Hamel of Yorba Linda „ held hands and bowed heads. Blake recalled strangers helping the three escape the Route 91 Harvest Festival con-cert venue without physical injuries.We need to have this. Its not a closure ceremony, its more a remembrance,Ž Blake said. There was a lot of good. There were people in there that helped us get out.ŽThe festival venue that became a killing ground has not been used in the year since the shooting. MGM Resorts International, the owner of the property and Mandalay Bay hotel, has not said if or when it will reopen.Company officials redirected curious people on Monday to a nearby Cath-olic church that offered a spot for quiet reflection.Ž They also reminded people about an evening dedication scheduled at the downtown Las Vegas Healing Garden, which became a memorial for victims of the shooting.Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo recalled the chaos and confusion of the shooting, and the prayers to heal broken hearts,Ž blood banks filled with donors and acts of kindness that com-forted the sufferingŽ that followed.When the sun rose the next morning, grief turned to anger, anger turned to resolve and resolve turned to action,Ž Lombardo said.Many who were cheering Jason Aldeans headline set on at the Route 91 Harvest Festival late Oct. 1, 2017 said later they thought the rapid crack-crack-crack they heard was fireworks „ until people fell dead, wounded, bleeding.From across neon-lit Las Vegas Boulevard, a gambler-turned-gunman with what police later called a meticulous plan but an unknown reason fired assault-style rifles for 11 minutes from 32nd-floor windows of the Mandalay Bay hotel into the concert crowd below. Police said he then killed himself.Medical examiners later determined that all 58 deaths were from gunshots. Another 413 people were wounded, and police said at least 456 were injured fleeing the carnage.Lombardo declared the police investigation finished in August, issuing a report that said hundreds of interviews and thousands of hours of investigative work could not provide answers to what made Stephen Craig Paddock unleash his hail of gunfire.That has left unanswered the question of why a 64-year-old former accountant, real estate investor, small plane pilot and high-limit video poker player assembled his arse-nal and attacked the concert crowd.Paddock was characterized by police as a loner with no religious or political affiliations who became obsessed with guns, spent more than $1.5 million in the two years before the shooting and distanced himself from his girlfriend and family.Paddocks gambling habits made him a sought-after casino patron. Over several days, Mandalay Bay employees readily let him use a service elevator to take suitcases to the $590-per-night suite he had been provided for free. The room had a command-ing view of the Strip and the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert grounds across the street. After breaking out windows, Paddock fired 1,057 shots in 11 minutes, police have said.Jim Murren, the chief executive and CEO of MGM Resorts International, issued a statement calling the shooting an unforgettable act of terror.ŽFrom left, Linda Hazelwood, Michelle Hamel and Jann Blake, all from California, cry as they attend a prayer service on the anniversary of the Oct. 1, 2017 mass shooting, Monday in Las Vegas.

First ladies usually practice a softer form of diplomacy, showing interest in a host nations schools, hospitals and arts programs, and avoiding thornier issues.Joshua Meservey, a senior Africa policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation, countered by noting the positive engagementsŽ the presi-dent has had with some African heads of state, including President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya, who met with Trump at the White House in late August. Trump also met last week in New York with President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi of Egypt.Meservey also noted that the U.S. spends con-siderable amounts on public health and development initiatives in Malawi, which is among the worlds least-devel-oped countries.I think the U.S.-Africa relationship is much bigger than the presi-dents comments, and its been going on for decades and decades,Ž he said. Frankly, I suspect the vast majority of average Africans have not heard of any of those dust-ups.

[EVAN VUCCI/THE ASSOCAITED PRESS]By Ken Thomas and Rob GilliesThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump hailed his revamped North American trade agreement with Canada and Mexico as a breakthrough for U.S. workers on Monday, vowing to sign it by late Novem-ber. But it still faces a lengthy path to congressional approval after serving for two decades as a political football for American manufacturing woes.Embracing the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which the Canadians joined just before a Sunday midnight deadline, Trump branded it the USMCA,Ž a moniker he said would replace the 24-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA. With a satisfied smile, the president said the new name had a good ring to it,Ž repeating U-S-M-C-A several times.But he noted that the agreement would need to be ratified by Congress, a step that could be affected by the outcome of the fall elections as Democrats seek to regain majorities in the House and Senate. When a reporter suggested he seemed confident of approval after his announce-ment, he said he was not at all confidentŽ „ but not because of the deals merits or defects.Anything you submit to Congress is trouble, no matter what,Ž Trump said, predicting that Democrats would say, Trump likes it so were not going to approve it.ŽCanadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Monday that his country was in a more stable place now that it had completed the negotiations. He said the deal needed to be fair since one trading partner was 10 times larger. He said Canada did not simply accept any deal.ŽWe got the right deal. We got a win-win-win for all three countries,Ž Trudeau said.Likewise, outgoing Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said via Twitter that the deal negotiated over the past 13 months achieves what we proposed at the beginning: a win-win-win agreement.ŽDespite Trumps jibe at the Democrats, their comments on the agreement were largely muted, though many lawmak-ers said the way the provisions of the deal are enforced would be critical.As someone who voted against NAFTA and opposed it for many years, I knew it needed fixing. The president deserves praise for taking large steps to improve it,Ž said Senate Dem-ocratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York. He said any final agreement must be judged on how it benefits and protects middle class families and the working people in our country.ŽTrump, for his part, said the accord would return the United States to a manufacturing powerhouse.ŽIn fact, the U.S. has always been a manufacturing power-house and by some projections „ made before he took office „ „ is expected to be No. 1 in 2020.Win-win-winMARKET WATCHDow 26,651.21 192.90 Nasdaq 8,037.30 9.05 S&P 2,924.59 10.61 Russell 1,672.99 23.58 NYSE 13,125.35 42.84COMMODITIES REVIEWGold 1,187.10 4.40 Silver 14.422 .201 Platinum 824.00 5.30 Copper 2.7740 .0130 Oil 75.30 2.05The Associated PressBOSTON „ General Electric ousted its CEO, took a $23 billion charge and said it would fall short of profit forecasts this year, further signs that the century-old industrial conglomerate is struggling to turn around its vastly shrunken business.H. Lawrence Culp Jr. will take over immediately as chairman and CEO from John Flannery, who had been on the job for just over a year. Flannery began a restructuring of GE in August 2017, when he replaced Jeffrey Immelt, whose efforts to create a higher-tech version of GE proved unsuccessful.However, in Flannerys short time, GEs value has dipped below $100 billion and shares are down more than 35 percent this year, following a 45 percent decline in 2017.The company was booted from the Dow Jones Industrial Average this summer and, last month, shares tumbled to a nine-year low after revealing a flaw in its marquee gas turbines, which caused the metal blades to weaken and forced the shut-down of a pair of power plants where they were in use.GE warned Monday that it will miss its profit forecasts this year and its taking a $23 billion charge related to its power business. The 55-year-old Culp was CEO and president of Danaher Corp. from 2000 to 2014. During that time, Dana-hers market capitalization and revenues grew five-fold. Hes already a member of GEs board.Its a track record that GE appears to need after a series of notable changes under Flan-nery failed to gain momentum immediately, although some analysts wonder whether Culps history of accomplishments will be enough to reverse the direction of the company.GE, seeking path forward as a century-old company, ousts CEO World marketsHow key international stock markets performed: AmsterdamAEX BrusselsBEL20 FrankfurtDAX Hong KongHang Seng LondonFTSE 100MilanFTSE MIB ParisCAC40 SydneyASX All Ordinaries TokyoNikkei ZurichSwiss Market Index % CHANGE PREVIOUS CLOSE TODAYS CLOSE ASSOCIATED PRESS KEY 0.5% 549.61 552.55 0.2% 3,706.73 3,715.02 0.8% 12,246.73 12,339.03 0.0% 27,788.52 27,788.52 -0.2% 7,510.20 7,495.67 -0.5% 20,711.70 20,609.99 0.2% 5,493.49 5,506.82 -0.1% 6,299.30 6,292.70 0.5% 24,120.04 24,245.76 0.4% 9,087.99 9,127.05 WHAT TO WATCH FOR TODAY€ Automakers release vehicle sales for September.MARKET MOVERS€ General Electric Co., up 80 to $12.09: The industrial company replaced John Flannery, who became its CEO and chairman a little more than a year ago. € Tesla Inc., up $45.93 to $310.70: Elon Musk will remain CEO of the electric car maker after settling a lawsuit brought by regulators.BRIEFCASETRENTON, N.J.P“ zers CEO Read to be replaced by COO BourlaThe biggest U.S.-based drugmaker will change leaders in January when Pfizer Chief Operating Officer Albert Bourla replaces CEO Ian Read, who has led the company for nearly eight years.Pfizer Inc. said Monday that Read will become executive chair-man of Pfizers board of directors.The move comes after Pfizers board in March gave Read an $8 million bonus contingent on boosting Pfizers stock price and staying on for up to a year.

WASHINGTONUS construction spending up slightly in August Spending on U.S. con-struction projects edged up a slight 0.1 percent in August as a strong gain in government spending offset weakness in home building and nonresiden-tial construction.The Commerce Depart-ment said Monday that the rise, which followed a 0.2 percent July increase, put total construction at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $1.32 trillion. That was down a slight 0.4 percent from a record high set in May.Residential construction fell 0.7 percent in August while nonresidential construction edged down 0.2 percent. Those declines were offset by a strong 2 percent rise in public construction, which increased to the high-est level since July 2009. Spending for federal and state and local projects increased.

A8 Tuesday, October 2, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comTODAYS WORKOUT1 move will work chest, shoulders, back By JoNel Aleccia Kaiser Health News O f all the indignities that come with aging, excessive earwax may be the most insidious. Dont laugh. That greasy, often gross, buildup occurs more often in older ears than those of the young, experts say. And when it goes unrecognized, it can pose serious problems, especially for the 2.2 million people who live in U.S. nursing homes and assisted living centers. The excessive amount [of earwax] can cause hearing loss or ringing in your ears. Some people experience vertigo, which increases the risk of falling,Ž said Jackie Clark, a boardcertified audiologist who is president of the American Academy of Audiology. Right now, we see some correlation between hearing loss and cognitive decline.Ž Earwax „ which is not really wax at all, but a substance called cerumen that binds with dirt, dust and debris „ is normally produced by the body as a way to clean and protect the ears. In most people, the self-cleaning process works fine. But in others „ including about 10 percent of young children, 20 percent of adults and more than 30 percent of elderly and developmentally disabled people „ the wax collects to the point where it can completely block the ear canal. Up to two-thirds of people in nursing homes may suffer from that condition, known as impaction, according to 2017 guidelines for removal of impacted earwax issued by the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation. In 2016, federal Medicare recipients logged nearly 1.7 million earwax removal services at a cost of more than $51 million, according to payment records analyzed by Kaiser Health News. In elderly patients, its fairly common,Ž said Dr. Seth Schwartz, a Seattle otolaryngologist who led the most recent update of the guidelines. It seems like such a basic thing, but its one of the most common reasons people present for hearing-related problems.Ž Its so bad that Janie York, of Omaha, Nebraska, started Hear Now mobile hearing solutions, one of a growing number of businesses devoted to cleaning hearing aids and checking the ears of elderly people living in residential care settings. Its epidemic,Ž said York, whose clients now include 10 local centers. About 3 in 5 people I see have some degree of impaction and most are completely impacted.Ž Julie Brown, assistant director of nursing in the memory support unit at SilverRidge Assisted Living in Gretna, Nebraska, said impacted earwax can be a particular problem for patients with dementia. It exacerbates hearing loss, which can impede communication and worsen aggression and other difficult behaviors. As soon as the earwax is cleared up, even their behavior has calmed down,Ž Brown said. Excessive earwax sends about 12 million people to see health workers every year, including about 8 million who require wax removal, according to the otolaryngology association. Hearing-aid users should have regular ear checks every three to six months, the guidelines suggest. People with dementia should also have earwax removed regularly.By Marlo Alleva More Content NowOur move today is an alternating pec deck. This move will work our chest, shoulders and upper back. You will need a set of light to medium weights for this exercise. This move can be executed either standing up or sitting down. Begin by grasping your hand weights in each hand, rolling your shoulders back and down and lifting your chest. Lifting each arm up to either side of your head, extend the arms out to each side of your body, with your elbows bent at shoulder level. Keepin g both palms facing forward, you are ready to move. Start by guiding one arm at a time around to the front of your body. Keep the weights upward, and direct with your elbow bent and at a 90-degree an g le. Once you reach your fullest contraction on the front side of your body, redirect your arm back to starting position on the outside of your body. Continue with the opposite arm in the same motion. Keep your movements somewhat slow and methodic, as the positioning can be a bit awkward, causing fatigue quickly. Shoot for eight to 10 repetitions, for at least three sets. Give yourself a small break between each set. Also, if your hand weights feel heavier, reduce the amount of weight or use no weight at all. You will still get the benefits of the move, just without the extra resistance. If you need more resistance, increase your weight. This move targets a few areas, so it is great to add into any upper body routine. And keep in mind every muscle is important all year round. Marlo Alleva demonstrates an alternating pec deck. [PIERRE DUCHARME/THE LEDGER] WHEN AND HOW SHOULD THE EARS BE CLEANED? Ears should be cleaned when enough earwax accumulates to cause one or more of the following symptoms: Earache, fullness in the ear, or a sensation the ear is plugged Partial hearing loss, which may be progressive Tinnitus, ringing, or noises in the ear Itching, odor, or discharge Coughing To clean the ears, wash the external ear with a cloth, but do not insert anything into the ear canal. Most cases of ear wax blockage respond to home treatments such as placing a few drops of mineral oil, baby oil, glycerin, or commercial drops in the ear. Detergent drops such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide (available in most pharmacies) may also aid in the removal of wax. Irrigation or ear syringing is commonly used for cleaning and can be performed by a physician or at home using a commercially available irrigation kit. Ear syringing is most effective when water, saline, or wax dissolving drops are put in the ear canal 15 to 30 minutes before treatment. „ American Academy of Otolaryngology…Head and Neck Surgery Earwax and the elderlyBuildup, blockage in ears poses unrecognized risk in long-term care Janie York examines the ear of Elaine Martin in Gretna, Nebraska. Martin had quite a bit of earwax before getting her ears cleaned by York and getting hearing aids. [CHRIS MACHIAN FOR KHN] SENIOR HEALTHFALLING IS BIG ISSUEOne in four adults age 65 and older falls each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These falls can cause injuries that not only a ect their health, but also their overall quality of life. Falls also are the most common cause of brain injury. Every 11 seconds an older adult is seen in an emergency room for a fall-related injury, reports the National Council On Aging. DEFICIENCYGET YOUR IODINEIodine is an essential element, enabling the function of thyroid glands to produce hormones for proper metabolism. When children in the womb dont get enough iodine from their mother, fetal brain development is impaired. During pregnancy, iodine de ciency can cause a child to develop learning and intellectual disabilities as well as developmental problems. Iodine de ciency was a problem in the U.S. until salt producers started adding iodine to table salt more than a century ago. Today, about 70 percent of the table salt sold in the U.S. is iodized.

Columns need to include a recent headshot of the writer. We edit for length, clarity, and grammar. Mail: Voices, P.O. Box 490007, Leesburg, FL 34749-0007 Email: Fax: 352-365-1951 Single young parents with children have big issues, especially when they have low incomes. In Florida there are 183,000 children with parents between the ages of 18 and 24; about 75 percent of these young parents have low incomes (one of the highest percentages in the country). And most havent attained educational levels that can help improve their economic futures: only 16 percent of Floridas young parents have earned associate degrees (or higher). These startling statistics are found in Kids Count,Ž a new report by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. According to the Kids Count report, many young parents are ill-equipped to provide the financial stability ... and support that children need to realize their full potential.Ž The main problem is that while most young parents work, their median family incomes hover just above the poverty line. The income problem is exacerbated by the fact that Florida workers in general earn only about 80 percent of what their counterparts do nationally, so those at the lower end of the income spectrum „ like these young single parents „ are even lower than similar people nationally. These days there are fewer single jobs that can solely support families, so young parents often have to cobble together several jobs. Here are some other hurdles that young parents face: „ A lack of quality child care „ just 5 percent of young parents receive child care subsidies. In many cases, the lack of consistent, quality child care causes young parents to drop out of the job market. „ Inadequate and unstable housing. This is a problem across Florida. „ A lack of reliable transportation „ young lowincome parents often cant afford cars, and available jobs are frequently far from housing thats affordable. „ A lack of adequate family planning education. Of course, these obstacles can seem even more insurmountable when young parents are also grappling with mental health issues; unfortunately, Floridas stingy, hard-hearted approach to funding mental health programs can make it difficult for besieged young parents to get the emotional and behavioral help they need. As the Casey report noted, if we dont help these young parents, two generations will be left behind: the struggling parents and their children. So how do we help these young parents and their children? It requires support programs. A system of frequent home visitations by social services professionals can help young parents and their children. Quality early childhood education and child care are key necessities. Pairing mentors with young parents can help direct them to available avenues of support. And even if young parents dont attend college, just having access to additional training after high school can greatly improve their job and earning prospects. All in all, supporting young parents as they try to move up the workforce ladder is good for them and their children. And good for our society. The Florida Times-Union (Jacksonville)OUR OPINIONToo many young parents struggling ANOTHER OPINION Kavanaughs performance sinks his own nomination With regard to the Kavanaugh confirmation, I had a great deal of sympathy for Professor Ford and Judge Kavanaugh, until Kavanaugh began hollering and accusing everyone but the Pope for his predicament. If a woman was sitting in his seat accused of some transgression and acted as he did, the Senate would have immediately withdrawn the nomination and would have laughed the woman out of town. His indignation is contrived, and his demeanor and absolute bias should be enough to end his nomination.Barbara Hill, EustisThe presumption of innocence is vital in Kavanaugh case Presumption of innocence is a legal tenet found in western civilization law for centuries. To prove innocence is impossible without relevant facts, time or place of incident. To date in the Kavanaugh accusation, none of four named potential witnesses can recollect the event. Could memory change over three and a half decades? Yes! But this door swings both ways in forms like false memory. All this, and add the politicization of the confirmation and you have a mess. Let us hope we keep a fair and open mind in this and all matters.Gerard J. Fischer, Mount DoraWriters attack is out of Trumps playbook The attack on Choice Edwards on a recent pinion page is stunning. It appears to be right out of Donald Trumps playbook. The writer claims that Mr. Edwards comments were viciously ignorant [and] slanderingŽ of Confederate Gen. Edmund Kirby Smith. I disagree. He pointed out how various people might accept the sight of a statue representing slavery or other evil issues. After reading the writers letter, I had to go back and get the referenced letter by Mr. Edwards. I dont know Mr. Edwards but I find him to be a learned man who is anything but vicious and slandering in his letters. In my mind the most grievous era in our nations history is what our forefathers did to the American Indians, but it appears that the war between the North and South is still alive.Betty Smith, LeesburgSenators, vote no on Kavanaugh After listening to Fords credible testimony about Kavanaughs sexual assault towards her back in the 1980s, the angry Kavanaughs true colors came out. His sins have finally caught up with him and thats why he was so angry after her testimony. Do we really need someone this unstable, angry and crying person on our Supreme Court? I think not. Do we need a sexual predator on our Supreme Court? I think not. Citizens of Florida, do your patriotic duty and call Senator Marco Rubio and Senator Bill Nelson and tell them to vote NoŽ on Kavanaugh. Do not let a sexual predator on our most high Supreme Court. Linda Green, LeesburgLETTERS TO THE EDITOR By Amber PhillipsWashington PostSen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., single-handedly paused Judge Brett M. Kavanaughs controversial Supreme Court nomination when he struck a last-minute deal Friday between Republicans who wanted to push it through, Democrats who wanted an FBI investigation into sexual misconduct claims against Kavanaugh and a handful of senators like Flake who werent sure what to do. Because of Flake, the FBI will investigate the allegations for a week, then the Senate will vote, likely with Flakes approval, on confirming Kavanaugh. It was a bold move that will help define Flakes career. But, Flake said Sunday, it could only happen because his career in the Senate is ending. And thats a striking thing to hear from the senator who forged a compromise on one of the most divisive Supreme Court nominations of our time. Compromise of this scale, Flake said, is essentially dead. Or at least, its dead to anyone in Congress who has to run in a competitive reelection. Heres what he told CBSs Scott Pelley in an interview for 60 MinutesŽ that aired Sunday: Pelley: Senator Flake, youve announced that youre not running for re-election and I wonder, could you have done this, if you were running for re-election? Flake: No, not a chance. Pelley: Not a chance? Flake: No, no. Pelley: Because politics has become too sharp, too partisan? Flake: Theres no value to reaching across the aisle. Theres no currency for that anymore. Theres no incentive.Ž Theres no currency [for compromise] anymore;Ž Theres no value to reaching across the aisle.Ž Theres no nuance in what Flakes saying: That there is no political reward for Republican lawmakers to work with Democrats, or Democratic lawmakers to work with Republicans. Flake is a reliably conservative member of Congress, and yet he told Pelley there are demonstrations outside his home from conservatives protesting how hes held up Kavanaughs nomination. Its this whole tribal nature of politics that becomes shirts and skins,Ž he said. Its usversus-them. Theres no room for compromise or doubt.Ž Lawmakers in competitive reelection campaigns once might have been the likeliest ones to compromise because they wanted to win over some of the other partys voters. But in this era, theyd be called out and maybe even abandoned by their base for it. Weve seen how Republican senators who criticized Trump have had their approval ratings suddenly drop back in their home states. Meanwhile, lawmakers who represent constituencies on the far left or far right have no incentive to upset their entrenched voters by working with the other side, lest there be protests outside their homes, too. The backlash against Flake comes even though he is retiring at the end of this year, having seen the writing on the wall about what being a critic of President Donald Trump meant for him in Arizona. He was concerned he wouldnt have enough support to win a competitive primary. So he decided to instead retire from his seat and embrace his role as one of Trumps main GOP antagonists. That was about a year ago. Since then, Flake has given multiple speeches denouncing aspects of Trump and Trumpism. But Fridays decision to hold his vote for Kavanaugh until there was an FBI investigation marked one of his first concrete actions to stop Trumps agenda. Because he is a swing vote on the Senate Judiciary Committee that advanced Kavanaughs nomination and a swing vote in the full Senate, Flake was in the right place at the right time to make a difference. But he said he never would have gotten up and tapped his buddy, Sen. Christopher A. Coons, D-Del., on the shoulder to reach this deal if he had to face voters next month. Thats not to say Flake is entirely free of consequences. Should Flake ever run for president, say as a challenger to Trump in 2020, this is not something Trumps base of the Republican Party is likely to forget. This primary season, we watched as voters in a conservative district in Alabama put a congresswoman, Rep. Martha Roby, on notice by sending her to a runoff two years after she said she couldnt vote for Trump to be president. Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C., another reliably conservative member of Congress who has regularly criticized Trump, lost his primary after being on the receiving end of a Trump tweet urging voters to vote against him. For now, though, Flakes plan is to retire from Congress. Thats the only reason he said he could do what he did. Such is the sorry state of compromise right now in Washington.ANOTHER OPINIONSen.

[BRAD MCCLENNY/THE GAINESVILLE SUN] By Doug FergusonThe Associated Press This is no time for the Americans to panic about the Ryder Cup. The goal that came out of the Ryder Cup Task Force in late 2014 was to have a winning record over the next 10 matches. So even after another thorough beating by Europe at Le Golf National, the Americans still have 16 years before deciding if theyre on the right path. One week in the suburbs of Paris felt like they were going in circles around the Arc de Triomphe. They had the strongest team based on the nine players who had experience winning major championships. They had the strongest team considering all 12 were among the top 25 players in the world ranking. They didnt stand a chance against Europe, which registered a 1710 victory. Only four times since 1979 has the Ryder Cup been decided by seven points or more, and Europe won three of them. Starting with the Friday afternoon sweep of the foursomes sessions, Europe won eight consecutive matches at one point and built a 10-6 lead that was too much for the Americans to overcome on a golf course with tight fairways and thick rough, and before more than 50,000 people ready to celebrate any shot that hit the green. Europe dominated the singles, just like they did nearly every session. Even the lone session the Americans won required a little luck when Tony Finaus tee shot hit the wooden plank on the edge of the water at the 16th hole and plopped down 3 feet away.US has European way gured out except for winningU.S. team captain Jim Furyk attends the trophy ceremony after the European team won the 2018 Ryder Cup golf tournament Sunday at Le Golf National in Saint Quentin-en-Yvelines, outside Paris, France.

Europe now has won nine of the last 12 times, and it was the third time in its last five victories that it won by seven points or more.Spieth and Justin Thomas went 3-1, the only American tandem to play all four matches. Reed was paired with Tiger Woods in fourballs, losing both matches, and sitting out both foursomes matches.In an interview with the Times an hour after the closing news conference, Reed said he was fully expecting Furyk to pair him with Spieth again.CHARLOTTE, N.C.Reid wont drop grievance vs. NFLEric Reid isnt planning on giving up his fight against racial injustice in America or his battle with the NFL.He just doesnt know if his protests against injus-tice will include kneeling for the national anthem. Reid, who signed a one-year contract last week with Carolina, said Monday he is still considering other waysŽ to protest and continue to raise awareness.The former Pro Bowl safety did not elaborate on his plans, but did say he will not drop his grievance against the NFL that alleges teams colluded to keep him out of the league because he protested alongside Colin Kaepernick.Nothing will ever change unless you talk about it. So were going to continue to talk about it,Ž Reid said of his ongoing fight for racial justice with his friend Kaepernick, who remains unsigned. Were going to continue to hold America to the standards that it says on paper „ that were all created equal. Because its not that way right now. But were going to keep pushing toward that.ŽROMERossi escapes ban after positive doping testFormer Italy forward Giuseppe Rossi escaped a ban on Monday despite failing a doping test.The American-born Rossi tested positive for an eye drug that can be used as a masking agent.The anti-doping prosecutor was seeking a one-year ban but the 31-year-old Rossi was given only a reprimand following Mondays hearing. The test was in May after Rossi played for Genoa at the end of the last Serie A season.Today a nightmare of four months is over,Ž Rossi wrote on Twitter. Now I just want to think about football and keep doing what I love more than any-thing else.ŽLADUE, MO.Mother sues school after son didnt make teamA mother is suing a northeast Missouri high school for discrimination after her son didnt make the varsity soccer team and was kicked off the junior varsity team last month.KTVI reports that the mother is identified as Jane Doe in the lawsuit against Ladue Horton Watkins High School.Ladue officials said Friday that a junior who doesnt make the varsity team cant return to the junior varsity team. According to the lawsuit, this amounts to age and sexual discrimination because the same rules dont apply to younger students or to girls.The family sued after Ladue Superintendent Donna Jahnke decided the familys complaint was unsubstantiated.

B4 Tuesday, October 2, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comMullen said he wants The Swamp environment to be like it used to be when he was here before. Saturday would be a good time to start because LSU is ranked No. 5 in the nation and this is one of the biggest UF home games in several years.Also on Saturday, the Gators will be honoring the 2008 national championship team that Mullen was part of, and quarterback legend Tim Tebow will be present and going into the programs Ring of Honor.I expect it to look like that (2008),Ž Mullen said.Mullen remembers what it was like back then. He was reminded of it last Saturday night in Starkville, where Mississippi State fans created a similar environment to what the Gators once had.The stadium was packed, and it was loud. Extremely loud throughout the entire game, and even before.Mullen helped create that hostile atmosphere in Starkville during his nine years as the Bulldogs head coach.I know having gone somewhere else where you had to build it,Ž he said. We built it through the student body. Anybody of the Gator Nation that went to last weeks game in Starkville probably saw that. The student section was packed an hour before kickoff.You can build it through that way, and the rest of the crowd feeds off of that. Thats one of the things that we really want to work on. Thats one of the things Ive gotten around campus, trying to get with student groups and let them know how critical they are to the atmosphere that we create. The student body is just critical to that.ŽWith the No. 5 Tigers in town, this will be the biggest home game the Gators have had since they beat No. 3 Ole Miss 38-10 in 2015.The Swamp atmosphere has been raucous in the early games this season, but there were plenty of empty seats in all three games, including the SEC opener against Kentucky.Mullen is challenging the fans to fill all those seats Saturday.Were celebrating the 2008 national championship team, which is a pretty special day,Ž he said. Having a lot of great players and former players come back. I know it will be nice after a couple weeks to get back home, let someone else deal with the crowd noise.I know our student governments already got it out there, that were encouraging everybody to wear blue. What we need to do is sell out The Swamp, pack it early, get loud and give us that home-field advantage.Ž GATORSFrom Page B1Goldwire totaled 162 yards on seven carries, while Mel-lado has 132 yards on 14 totes as the Buffalo ground attack finished with 563 yards and eight touchdowns. Goldwire ran for two touchdowns and Mellado reached the end zone once. Devon Cole, Lake MinneolaThe Hawks dual-threat quarterback had a solid night Friday against East Ridge, including a 71 yard scoring run that proved to be the game winner in a wild 40-36 shootout.Cole completed 7 of 15 passes for 146 yards and a touchdown and ran for 130 yards on 13 carries.He had three runs of at least 18 yards, but Coles big-gest haul against the Knights „ and possibly of the season „ was his touchdown run with 2 minutes, 21 seconds to play. Cole set up the run by sliding to his left after taking the snap and looking the defense to the wide side of the field.Then, he found a seam and raced back to his right, through the East Ridge defense and down the side-lines for the touchdown. His score gave the Hawks a 40-30 lead and enabled them to withstand a late charge. Chase Meinhart, Lake MinneolaThe senior battering ram running back had 136 yards on 26 carries and three touch-downs against East Ridge.In his last two games, Mein-hart has rushed for nearly 300 yards and scored six touchdowns.Much of Meinharts work against East Ridge was between the tackles. He had five runs of at least 10 yards, but also had 14 totes of three yards or less.His blue-collar work kept the Knights defense honest, forcing them to respect the inside running game, which opened up Lake Minneolas passing attack and enable Cole to use his elusiveness to get to the edges. Kyeandre Magliore, East RidgeIn many ways, Magliore WAS the Knights offense against Lake Minneola.The junior running back blasted his way through and scampered around the Hawks defense for 229 yards on 18 carries and two touchdowns. He also returned a kickoff 86 yards for a score. Magliore finished with 349 all-purpose yards.For the season, Magliore is the Knights leading rusher with 496 yards and five touchdowns. He also has five receptions for 132 yards „ an average of 26.4 yards per catch „ and one touchdown. Rashon Scott, EustisFridays game against Poinciana was another 100-plus yard performance for the Panthers senior running back.Scott shredded the Poinci-ana defense for 161 yards on 17 carries with a touchdown in Eustis 35-0 win. He powered a ground attack that totaled 248 yards and touchdowns.For the season, Scott leads all Lake and Sumter County runners with 1,216 yards and eight touchdowns. He also has returned four kickoffs for 167 yards „ a 41.8 yard average. Wyatt Watson, South LakeWyatt Watsons time in the spotlight wasnt supposed to come this early.The freshman was expected to spend this season as an understudy to senior running back Kelley Joiner Jr., but when Joiner suffered a broken leg against Crystal River, Watson was forced to step up. And he has done just that.Against Ocala Lake Weir, Watson gained 177 yards on 34 carries with two touch-downs. It more than doubled his season totals „ Watson entered the game with 174 yards „ and was his second straight 100-yard game.Watson also caught two passes for 40 yards and two touchdowns. Baylee Heuser, South LakeThe senior quarterback had, arguably, his best game of the season on Friday.Heuser completed 16 of 25 passes for 255 yards and two touchdowns against Ocala Lake Weir. His favor-ite target was Joey Pendarvis, who pulled in seven passes for 120 yards.For the season, Heuser has completed 56 of 100 passes (56 percent) for 887 yards and four touchdowns. Robbie Sanders, East RidgeIn just his second game at quarterback, the Knights sophomore signal caller turned in a solid effort against Lake Minneola.Sanders completed 11 of 21 passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns.In two games, Sanders has completed 19 of 39 passes for 234 yards and three touchdowns. T.J.

[PAUL RYAN / CORRESPONDENT] Its easy to criticize the Americans after another loss. Tiger Woods went 0-4, shut out for the first time in his eight appearances in the Ryder Cup. Thats four points to the European team,Ž Woods said. And Im one of the contributing factors to why we lost the cup. And its not a lot of fun.Ž He now has a 13-21-3 record in the Ryder Cup and briefly tied the record for most losses in Ryder Cup history. The good news for Woods is that Phil Mickelson was still on the golf course. Mickelson also got shut out, playing only two matches at Le Golf National and losing them both, giving him a record of 18-22-7. The second one stung the most because it was the official cup-clincher for Europe. Francesco Molinari, the star of these matches, capped off his 5-0 week by beating Mickelson in singles. Mickelson had to win the last three holes to earn a halve, and instead hit his tee shot into the water on the 16th and immediately removed his cap. The celebration was on, and it sounded familiar. Its difficult to talk about it because it means so much to me over the years, and I did not play well this year,Ž said Mickelson, who built his year around winning the U.S. Open to complete the career Grand Slam and winning the Ryder Cup on European soil, neither of which he had ever accomplished.Ž That remains the case. In the U.S. Open, he is remembered for whacking a moving ball with his putter out of frustration at Shinnecock Hills. In the Ryder Cup, he is remembered losing the match that officially gave Europe the points it needed to win. This could very well, realistically, be my last one,Ž he said. Mickelson is an easy target, but some of his words are worth heeding. He gave credit to Europe, and how could he not? Molinari and Tommy Fleetwood were unbeatable, becoming only the second tandem since this format began in 1979 to win all their team matches. European captain Thomas Bjorn used his wild-card selections on Henrik Stenson and Sergio Garcia, neither of whom had won a tournament this year. They combined to go 6-1. The other two picks were for Paul Casey and Ian Poulter, who went 3-3-1. Three of U.S. captain Jim Furyks picks didnt win a match. Woods, Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau were a combined 0-9. Tony Finau was the last pick, and he did the job Sunday morning with a convincing win over Fleetwood in a bid to put American red scores on the board. Was it Furyks fault? The brunt of it is going to be on my plate,Ž Furyk said. I accepted that when I took this role.Ž No golf tournament gets more second-guessing than this one, which is why it should be called the Hindsight Cup. In a halfdozen interviews as the European celebration was ringing in his ears, there was little he could say. Thomas was a better captain, and their team outplayed us,Ž Furyk said. And theres nothing else more you can say. They deserved to win. They played well.Ž GOLFFrom Page B1But the Cubs are also a tough team to keep down.They have three straight appearances in the NL Cham-pionship Series and a World Series championship in 2016 that ended a 108-year drought. Theyre no strangers to tight spots and they find themselves in another one, after Milwaukee caught them down the regular-sea-son stretch. The Brewers won four of six against Chicago in September to help forge the tiebreaker game after the Cubs went from trailing them by 4 games in the division to leading by five. Milwaukee pulled even on the final weekend.The Cubs then managed just three hits Monday against Jhou-lys Chacin and four relievers. They were also held to one run or less for the 39th time even though they ranked fourth in the National League in scoring.We have another opportu-nity,Ž Maddon said. Ive been involved with wild card teams that have gone all the way. It happens.Ž Maddon was the Los Ange-les Angels bench coach in 2002 when they won the World Series as a wild card. And the Cubs have certainly won their share of elimination games the past four seasons.They beat Pittsburgh in the wild card-game in 2015 after finishing third in the division behind St. Louis and the Pirates. In 2016, they rallied from 3-1 down in the World Series and won Game 7 at Cleveland to bring home the first championship in 108 years. And they beat Washington in a grueling Division Series last year, winning Game 5 on the road.This is nothing new to us,Ž outfielder Jason Heyward said.They feel confident with Lester, who will become the first pitcher to start two wild-card games. He gave up six runs to the Royals in 2014 while with Oakland in a 9-8, 12-inning loss.Lester was 6-1 with a 1.71 ERA in his final eight starts. He has been particularly stingy in the postseason throughout his career, going 9-7 with a 2.55 ERA in 25 games and 21 starts.The Cubs endured a long list of injuries and players not performing the way they anticipated, whether it was Yu Darvish making just eight starts after sign-ing a $126 million contract or Kris Bryant making two trips to the disabled list because of inflammation in his left shoulder. WILD CARDFrom Page B1


DEAR ABBY: My older sister, "Lily," is in a biracial marriage and has a son. Our dad never approved. He gave her an ultimatum when she rst met "Rodney": Choose between him or our family. She chose Rodney. After 30 years of Dad not speaking to her and inuencing us siblings to feel the same way, our mother died and Dad rekindled his relationship with Lily. He's 82 now, and he puts her and her family rst. He spends a lot of money on them and spends a lot of time with her and her son. The rest of us feel so much resentment. I realize he's making up for lost time and feels guilty. But it's sickening when we remember how he pushed us to feel the way he did back then and now expects us to do an emotional 180. We are OK with being with our sister and her family. It's Dad we're having the problem with. How do we move on? -UPSET IN THE EAST DEAR UPSET: I wish you had mentioned what caused your father's change of heart because it would have been a valuable lesson for a lot of readers. He did a disservice to ALL of you by teaching hate rather than love and acceptance. Now you have decades of lost time to make up for. Anger, resentment and bigotry serve no one well. Your father recognizes the mistake he made by shunning his daughter and her family, and he's trying to make up for it. As I write this, I'm reminded of a line from the "Peace Prayer of St. Francis": "Where there is hatred, let me sow love." Good for your father! The way for you to move on would be to recognize it's time to forgive him for the damage he caused your family because, if you don't, you and your siblings will perpetuate it. DEAR ABBY: I have worked for my husband, "Ben," in a small rm for 20 years, but members of my family still think I don't have a "real" job. I did it so I'd have exibility in taking care of our children, participating in PTA and other school activities, and be involved in the community. This benets us not only as a family but also Ben's business. I work a 40-plus-hour week, just not necessarily 9 to 5. So why does my family think they can call me at work, especially on my cell, for non-work-related issues? They wouldn't call their friends or children at work, so why, despite my asking them REPEATEDLY not to, do they still call, or worse, drop in? How can I make them stop bothering me? -AT WORK DEAR AT WORK: Because you have asked your relatives not to call between certain hours, screen your calls before answering your phone. When they ask why you didn't pick up, repeat the message that you were working and please not to call you at that time. If they drop in, quit being so available. Repeat that they have come at a time that's inconvenient, and give them a time when you can socialize.

YESTERDAYS SOLUTION BRIDGE CRYPTOQUOTE HOROSCOPES TODAY IN HISTORY DIVERSIONS HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR TUESDAY, OCT. 2, 2018:This year you will grow and see life differently. Your goals, interests and relationships will change or adapt. If you are single, the person you choose now might not be the same person you choose in a year. Think of yourself as going shopping and seeing who ts you best. If you are attached, you and your partner become inordinately content with each other. Many people look at you as a couple and think that you act like newlyweds. CANCER is quite emotional but has feelings that are similar to yours.ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Pressure builds. Your understanding and bright solutions will help improve whatever project you take on. As always, your instincts come out to direct you when chaos or confusion erupts. You could nd that a different approach might be better for everyone involved. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) You tend to express yourself deliberately and with thought. You love brainstorming sessions and get-togethers with your peers. Often, if you share more, you inspire others, and vice versa. Once an issue is resolved, you will want to celebrate. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Be aware of the cost of continuing as you have. You have gone overboard in several different ways as of late. Before you have to pay the piper, attempt to rein yourself in. Your imagination might cause you a problem in being realistic. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Reach out to a loved one. Ask yourself if you have a more effective way of helping pull this person out of the doldrums. Know that a partner could be unusually controlling. If you do not want to deal with this, do not react. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Read between the lines with others. You also might need to take a break from your present pace. Communication proves to be exciting and allows greater give-and-take between you and others. A change of pace in the near future seems appropriate. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) A meeting could be provocative and changeable. Once you get past your initial reaction, you could be surprised by what is happening around you. Know that others are well-intended. You might be confused by a partners or loved ones reaction. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Take charge and do not feel intimidated by a higher-up. Communication ourishes and inspires you with a work-related matter. Pull away from someone who indicates a my-way-or-thehighway situation. Refuse to be intimidated. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Reach out to a loved one or an expert at a distance. Until you speak to a particular person, you could feel as though you have no choice. Use caution with the words you choose. Someone might be pushing you too hard to agree with him or her. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22DEC. 21) Deal with others on a one-on-one level. Many ideas and thoughts could oat between you. If you are bored by life, you might change those feelings within the next few days. Go with the ow. An associate becomes somewhat rebellious. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Be aware of how a personal situation could change if given half a chance. You tend to make demands on others. You also put some hard terms on them. If someone walks away as a result, do not be surprised. Being rm does not work with everyone.AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Listen to news carefully. You have a lot of ground to cover; if you stay focused, you will be able to do just that. Use care with your nances. You might not be getting all the facts right now, so wait until you are sure that you have them. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You might want to be more creative and dynamic than you have been in the recent past. Others often feel inspired by you, but they are not sure that they can get behind one of your ideas. Make sure you let them know that the idea is workable. Guilty dad spends extra time with once-estranged daughter | Tuesday, October 2, 2018 B5 TODAY IS TUESDAY, OCT. 2, the 275th day of 2018. There are 90 days left in the year. TODAY'S HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY: On Oct. 2, 1944, German troops crushed the twomonth-old Warsaw Uprising, during which a quarter of a million people had been killed. ON THIS DATE: In 1941, during World War II, German armies launched an all-out drive against Moscow; Soviet forces succeeded in holding onto their capital. In 1950, the comic strip "Peanuts," created by Charles M. Schulz, was syndicated to seven newspapers. In 1967, Thurgood Marshall was sworn as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court as the court opened its new term. In 1971, the music program "Soul Train" made its debut in national syndication. In 1984, Richard W. Miller became the rst FBI agent to be arrested and charged with espionage. (Miller was tried three times; he was sentenced to 20 years in prison, but was released after nine years.) In 2002, the Washington, D.C.-area sniper attacks began, setting o a frantic manhunt lasting three weeks. (John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo were nally arrested for killing 10 people and wounding three others; Muhammad was executed in 2009; Malvo was sentenced to life in prison.)
