BaldorThe Associated PressBRUSSELS „ Acting to counter Russias aggressive use of cyberattacks across Europe and around the world, the U.S. is expected to announce that, if asked, it will use its formidable cyberwarfare capabilities on NATOs behalf, according to a senior U.S. official.The announcement is expected in the coming days as U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis attends a meeting of NATO defense ministers.Katie Wheelbarger, the principal deputy assistant defense secretary for international security affairs, said the U.S. is committing to use offensive and defensive cyber operations for NATO allies, but America will maintain control over its own personnel and capabilities.The decision comes on the heels of the NATO summit in July, when members agreed to allow the alliance to use cyber capabilities that are provided voluntarily by allies to protect networks and respond to cyberattacks. It reflects grow-ing concerns by the U.S. and its allies over Moscows use of cyber operations to influ-ence elections in America and elsewhere.Russia is constantly push-ing its cyber and information operations,Ž said Wheelbarger, adding that this is a way for the U.S. to show its continued commitment to NATO.NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg told reporters on Wednesday that the inclusion of offensive cyber operations in alliance missions is just one of many elements in our strengthened NATO cyber defenses.Ž And he said that its important to have cyber capabilities that can be used against the Islamic State group to destroy the networks they use for recruiting, financ-ing and communicating.He said that the British and Denmark have also agreed to make cyber contributions to NATO and he expects other allies will follow.We have seen an increasing number of cyber-attacks. They are more frequent, they are more sophisticated,Ž Stolten-berg said. We see cyber being used to meddle in domestic political processes, attacks against critical infrastructure. Cyber will be an integral part of any future military conflict.ŽUS to o er cyberwar capabilities to NATO alliesBy Stephen WrightThe Associated PressPALU, Indonesia „ For some who survived the massive earthquake and tsunami on Indonesias Sulawesi island last week, the memories and the horror of experiencing a disaster that has left more than 1,400 people dead are both hard to erase and understand.Furniture maker Khairul Hassan recalled working at a shop near the beach in front of a row of warehouses when the ground came alive and shook violently. He ran to a nearby hill and watched as the ocean heaved up and hurled forward. Now he cant forget.I saw the waves come and sweep out everything „ buildings, factories, ware-houses and some people who were lost, racing from the waves, some of them women and children,Ž he said Wednesday. Also, warehouse workers who were trapped under goods, all swept by the sea. Its so tragic. Its so scary to remember.ŽFive days later, aid was slowly creeping into areas where victims have become increasingly desperate after being left without food, water, fuel and medicine. In one neighborhood in the city of Palu, residents celebrated as they swarmed a truck delivering aid „ clapping, cheering and high-fiving.Im so happy,Ž said Heru-wanto, 63, who goes by one name. He was clutching a box of instant noodles. I really havent eaten for three days.ŽThe official death toll increased to 1,407 on Wednesday, with thousands injured and more than 70,000 displaced from their homes, said national disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho. He said the number of dead would increase, but that rescue crews had reached all affected areas.The U.N. humanitarian office estimated that some 200,000 people need assistance in the disaster zone and announced a $15 million allocation to bolster relief efforts. Help has been slow to reach many victims, espe-cially those living in areas cut off by impassable roads. But large fuel and food conveys, guarded by security forces, have been making their way in.Miles of coastline spread-ing out from Palu are a surreal landscape of debris, beached boats, upturned cars and the foundations of obliterated houses.All that remained of many beachside homes was their foundations. Wrecked houses still standing were spray painted with appeals for aid. On the wall of one dwelling, Help us Mr. PresidentŽ was scrawled in big lettering.The town of Donggala to the northwest of Palu was relatively unscathed. A few houses had collapsed and a couple of large boats were beached. Residents were relaxed and smiling in contrast to the anguish and tension evident across Palu.In addition to the quake and tsunami, Indonesia also dem-onstrated Wednesday what it means to sit on the Pacific Ring of FireŽ when a vol-cano erupted in another part of Sulawesi island about 585 miles northeast of the earth-quake zone. It sent a plume of ash more than 20,680 feet into the sky. Planes were warned of the cloud billowing from Mount Soputan because the ash can be hazardous for aircraft engines, but no evacuations were ordered in the area.Experts said its possible the quake accelerated the eruption, but there is no concrete evidence to prove that. Activity at the volcano had been increasing since August and began surging on Monday, Kasbani, who heads Indonesias Volcanology and Geology Disaster Mitigation Agency and uses one name, told an online news portal.More than 25 countries offered assistance after Presi-dent Joko JokowiŽ Widodo appealed for international help. He visited the disaster zone Wednesday, saying theres still work to be done, but that conditions were improving with businesses starting to reopen, helping people to start returning their lives to normal. He said U.S. President Donald Trump called him Tuesday night, offering assistance.We are going in phases. There are lots of things hap-pening related to evacuation, as aid and fuel are also coming in,Ž he said, noting that 30 people remain buried under rubble at the Roa Roa Hotel in Palu.Some homeless residents werent waiting for help. Dozens sifted through what remained of the flattened complex of warehouses along Palus ravaged coastline, looking for anything they could salvage to eat, sell or help them rebuild. They carted away corrugated metal, wood, piping and other items.Horror di cult to erase for Indonesians as toll tops 1,400By Darlene SupervilleThe Associated PressCAPE COAST, Ghana „ Melania Trump said Wednesday that she will never forgetŽ her visit to a former slave holding facility on Ghanas coast.She called it very emo-tionalŽ and really something that people should see and experience.ŽThe U.S. first lady spent nearly an hour on a guided tour of the 17th-century castle, which originally was built by the Swedes for the trading of timber and gold but eventually became a warehouse for slaves shipped to the New World.I will never forget (the) incredible experience and the stories I heard. The dungeons that I saw, its really something that people should see and experience,Ž she said after she was asked to reflect on the visit.The first lady was led around the facility by museum direc-tor Kwesi Essel-Blankson. She spent about 10 minutes inside the dark, cramped dungeon where male slaves were housed. She then walked down a pathway leading to the Door of No Return,Ž where slaves were shipped to the New World with no hope of returning to Africa.She walked out and back through the door with the guide before she laid a wreath, observed a moment of silence and signed a guest book.Its very emotional,Ž the first lady said before departing.Mrs. Trump arrived at the castle after an approximately 2 -hour early morning drive from Accra, the capital city, where she has stayed since opening her first extended international trip as first lady on Tuesday.She added that the castle is a special place.ŽFormer President Barack Obama, the only black U.S. president, toured the castle with his family in 2009 and said it was a reminder of the capacity of human beings to commit great evil.Ž Mrs. Trump, who was born in Slovenia, is on her first visit to Africa, with a goal of high-lighting child welfare on the continent.She toured an infant clinic in Accra and met with Ghanas first lady at the presidential palace after she arrived Tuesday. She also has stops planned this week in Malawi, Kenya and Egypt.First Lady visits ex-slave holding facilityFirst lady Melania Trump tours Cape Coast Castle with Cape Coast Castle museum educator Kwesi Essel-Blankson in Cape Coast, Ghana, on Wednesday.

He was charged with possessing a weapon on school grounds.Last week, deputies also arrested a 10-year-old girl for bringing a knife to Minneola Charter Elementary School concealed in a stuffed animal, as well as a 13-year-old Windy Hill Middle School student who had razor blades in his pocket.WEST PALM BEACHSome eastern Florida beaches remain shut as red tide lingersA rare outbreak of red tide along Floridas Atlantic Coast is keeping beaches closed.Palm Beach County officials said Wednesday that beaches will remain closed until Friday. At least six beaches have been closed since the weekend and had been expected to reopen Wednesday.Red tide is caused by algae and is common on Floridas Gulf Coast. It was hit hard over the summer by an outbreak that caused a massive die-off of fish and other sea life. It also caused breathing problems in some humans. There have been 57 Gulf Coast outbreaks since 1953.Red tide is uncommon on the states Atlantic Coast, with only eight outbreaks since 1953. The last outbreak in Palm Beach County was 10 years ago.CHIPLEYDeputy stuns man pulled over on stolen tractorA Florida sheriffs deputy used a stun gun on a man who tried to flee after he was pulled over while riding a stolen tractor.The dashcam video posted on Facebook by the Wash-ington County Sheriffs office had nearly 50,000 views by Wednesday morning.The Facebook post says the deputy spotted the trac-tor driven by Charles McNeil swerving on Sept. 28 and ini-tiated a traffic stop, during which McNeil provided a false name and invalid drivers license. City Council to consider resolution opposing Confederate monument at museumBy Roxanne Brownroxanne.brown @dailycommercial.comMOUNT DORA … The Mount Dora City Council is poised to add its voice to the chorus of city councils around Lake County opposing the placement of a 9-foot Confederate statue in the Lake County Histori-cal Museum in Tavares.The council, if it supports a resolution asking Lake County officials to prevent the museum from bringing the statue here, would join the cities of Tavares, Lees-burg, Eustis, Clermont and Groveland.The vote is set to take place during a City Council meeting beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday at Mount Dora City Hall.Local citizens asked the council at a recent meeting to consider the request.Pastor Michael Watkins of the C.M.E. Friendship Church in Tavares argues that Gen. Edmund Kirby Smith who is depicted in the statue has no ties to Lake County, and that the monument would divide the community by uncover-ing old wounds throughout Lake Countys African American community.The museums curator, Bob Grenier, has said the statue is a work of art,Ž that would simply serve to illustrate the section of the museum that honors Next up in statue ght: Mount DoraBy Jim TurnerNews Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam would like the renegotiated and rebranded North American Free Trade Agreement to do more to help the states farmers.And hes not alone, as U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., also expressed con-cerns about the absence of relief for Florida agriculture in the revamped trade pact announced late Sunday.Putnam, who has long been a critic of the 24-year-old NAFTA, pointed to a need for more work to help Florida farmers who compete with growers in Mexico."I am disappointed that this new agreement has no new protections for Florida fruit and vegetable producers, who for too long have suffered from Mexicos unfair trade practices despite our best efforts,Ž Putnam said in an email Tuesday.Our department, Floridas congressional delegation and industry groups have fought hard to protect our specialty crop industry since the incep-tion of NAFTA, and we will continue to do so as this No relief in sightConfederate Gen.

It was stress, not insanity, they say.The property itself was part of the stress. Hydes mother, Wanda Hyde, pur-chased the land for him at a cost of $675,000 in 2015.I wasnt happy about it at all,Ž Hydes father, Virgil Jr., testified Wednesday. He didnt have a job and he had a wife and two kids.ŽHyde said his wife spoiled him too much.Ž He described his son in a depo-sition as a mamas boy.ŽHe had a good intent,Ž Hyde said of his son.

Trump, who campaigned in 2016 arguing that NAFTA was poorly negotiated and hurting American workers and manufacturers, has proposed naming the revised pact as the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.Rubio spokeswoman Olivia Perez-Cubas said in an email Tuesday that our concerns for Florida fruit and vegeta-bles remain.ŽA little more than a year ago, Rubio and U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., were among Florida lawmakers who urged U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to push for measures to help the states agriculture industry.Last week, after initial details of a deal with Mexico were announced, Rubio and Nelson introduced legislation intended to help Florida growers bring trade cases against Mexican growers. Under the proposal, farmers could initiate cases with the Department of Commerce and the U.S. International Trade Commission if they can prove dumping happens seasonally rather than year-round, according a news release from the senators.Rubio said in a state-ment that the bill is aimed at preventing dumping of Mexican winter produce into U.S. markets and is needed because of the absence of a memoran-dum of understanding or suspension agreements with the Mexican govern-ment covering seasonal and perishable produce imports.Ž In April, Putnam sent a letter to Lighthizer urging him to consider Floridas agriculture industry in negotiating changes to NAFTA.Putnam told Lighthizer that family farms in Florida and other states have found no relief from these unfair practices in our current trade laws or the current NAFTA agreement.ŽIn 2016, as the busi-ness-recruitment agency Enterprise Florida talked about expanding Floridas role in international trade, Putnam said it was already too late to undo damage to the states growers from NAFTA."The entire tomato industry has realigned and very much is a shadow of its former self,Ž Putnam said in November 2016.At the time, Putnam said the most helpful thing Trump could do would be to enforce protections in the trade agreement that are supposed to keep American producers from being undercut by such things as product dumping and currency manipulation."Prior administrations just didn't enforce the letter of the treaty to begin with," Putnam said. "Gosh, just that alone would be a step in the right direction."

HYDEFrom Page A3By Meagan Flynn The Washington PostPeggy Sue Gerron was 17 years old, a senior at a Catholic girls school, when the world heard her name radiate through the airwaves over and over on its way to rock n roll immortality. And she was in the crowd the night Buddy Holly and The Crickets played it for her for the first time at the Sacramento Memorial Auditorium, as she sunk down in her chair and blushed while dozens of people screamed her name. Peggy Sue, Peggy Sue,Ž Buddy Holly sang in the 1957 single, Oh how my heart yearns for you!Ž The Peggy SueŽ of Buddy Holly and The Crickets fame would go on to become one of the most influential songs in rock history. But Peggy Sue herself whose love interest was not Holly, but Crickets drummer Jerry Allison would drift out of the 50s to trade Poodle dresses for dental hygienist scrubs, going on to raise a family and start a business in California. As she wrote on her own website: Peggy Sue is much more than a song.Ž On Monday, Peggy Sue Gerron died at the University Medical Center hospital in Lubbock, Texas her hometown, a spokes-person for the hospital confirmed to The Wash-ington Post. She was 78. Gerron was born in Olton, Texas, and grew up in Lubbock, where she would meet Holly and Alli-son, the man she would later marry. The three attended Lubbock High School. And once Allison and Gerron started going steady, they frequently joined Holly and his girlfriend for Cokes at the Hi-D-Ho Drive-In, as Gerron recounted in her 2008 memoir, Whatever Happened to Peggy Sue?Ž But just as Holly and the Crickets music started to take off, Gerron moved to Sacramento to finish at the Catholic high school. Their paths wouldnt cross again until she got a call from her old boyfriend, Allison, inviting her to the show at the Sacramento Memorial Auditorium where they were on tour. Allison planned to woo her back with the Peggy SueŽ surprise. The song was actually never supposed to be called Peggy Sue,Ž as multiple Crickets, including Alli-son, have said in interviews over the years. Originally, the band planned to call it Cindy Lou,Ž named for Hollys niece. But producer Norman Petty had an issue with its cha-cha rhythm, as Allison told NPR in 2000. Allison said he would agree to change it to a paradiddle a rapid drumbeat if Holly would agree to change the name to Peggy Sue,Ž he told NPR. He wanted to impress Gerron. And it apparently worked. I think Buddy was playing a little bit of Cupid there,Ž Gerron told the Austin American-States-man in 1999, referring to the Sacramento Memorial Auditorium performance. Allison and Gerron married once Gerron graduated from high school in 1958, prompting a sequel to Peggy SueŽ written by Buddy Holly called, Peggy Sue Got Married.Ž This is what I heard/ Of course the story could be wrong,Ž he sang in the 1958 track. Shes the one/Ive been told/Well, shes wearing a band of gold/Peggy Sue got married not long ago.Ž Holly recorded the song on a home tape recorder in December 1958 two months before he died tragically in a plane crash in Iowa, along with singer Ritchie Valens, J. P. The Big BopperŽ Richardson and the pilot. The day, Feb. 3, 1959, famously became known as the day the music diedŽ in Don McLeans song American Pie.Ž Pegy Sue, Pegy Sue, immortalized by Buddy Holly, dies at 78In this Jan. 11, 2008, “ le photo, Peggy Sue Gerron unveils her new book What Ever Happened to Peggy SueŽ during a press conference in Tyler, Texas.

DailyCommercial.com | Thursday, October 4, 2018 A7 Donald Trumps approach to trade policy, as with many topics, is different from that of past presidents. His scripts typically include plenty of threats, complaints and drama, designed not just to get his way but to keep the public engaged. Not being drama critics, well let others judge the entertainment merits of his strategy. But when it comes to tangible results, his renegotiation of NAFTA has worked better than his detractors expected. The new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA, came to fruition in cliffhanger talks with Canada that ended Sunday. It retains most of the valuable parts of the 1994 trade deal, which was designed to facilitate more commerce and greater economic integration among the United States, Canada and Mexico. Under it, trade among the three has grown from about $290 million to $1.2 trillion. But as you would expect of an economic compact drafted before the internet, email and mobile phone use became part of every facet of life, it was due for a renovation to accommodate changes in these North American economies. The ones agreed on by the three governments in recent months reflect that need. For the Midwest, NAFTA has been a boon. Automakers have gained from being able to make and assemble different components wherever efficiency dictates. With some tweaks „ which, regrettably, will make it more expensive to build vehicles in Mexico „ the new accord largely preserves that system. Its no accident that the two biggest customers for Illinois exports are Canada and Mexico, and sales have grown at a solid pace in recent years. That corn you see being harvested when you drive through the countryside? In a normal year, about 40 percent of it is shipped to our North American neighbors. A tariff war with either or both of them, which might have erupted had the talks failed, would have taken a heavy toll on heartland farmers. There are other useful steps, notably stronger protections for intellectual property, which is a particular U.S. strength. Canada and Mexico obtained commitments that they wont be subject to the 25 percent auto duties Trump has threatened to impose on other countries. He won a big concession by persuading Ottawa to take steps to open up its highly protected dairy industry „ which has long blocked U.S. competition with import quotas and tariffs as high as 300 percent. We take it as good news that Dairy Farmers of Canada immediately denounced the change. Wisconsin and other Midwest dairy farmers, who lost sales after Canada tightened its rules last year, are likely to take a more positive view. Trump correctly dropped his demand to get rid of the independent tribunals set up in the original treaty to resolve disputes about trade policy. Some trade hawks see them as an infringement on American sovereignty, but they serve to ensure a fair process to everyone. Keeping them was perhaps the highest priority for Canadians „ who otherwise would have to litigate in American courts, where U.S. companies would enjoy a home-field advantage. The panels function to promote free commerce under established rules, something that benefits all three nations. NAFTA created a mostly open continental market that fosters trilateral growth, cooperation and progress „ and, not least important, Midwestern prosperity. In concluding the new pact, the administration deserves credit for preserving that fundamental achievement. Chicago TribuneANOTHER OPINIONNAFTA rewrite should boost Midwest exports ANOTHER OPINION Michelle Obamas book tour is generating Beyonce-level sales,Ž the Washington Post reports. Front-row tickets to hear her discuss her upcoming memoir BecomingŽ are going for $3,000, which includes a pre-show photo op, a reception with Obama, a signed book and an exclusive VIP gift item.Ž No. No. No. Barack and Michelle Obama were a laudable president and first lady. Professionally, they were highly ethical, while culturally and politically they were exemplary role models. The Obama administration, which for its last six years faced a Republican Congress dedicated above all to Obamas destruction, was among the most scandal-free in U.S. history. There is a reason Republicans spent years re-investigating previous investigations of the madefor-Fox-News pseudoevent known as Benghazi: The genuine scandal pickings were mighty slim. Of course, Obama was succeeded in office by Donald Trump, who has already scaled previously unattained heights in presidential corruption, using the Oval Office as a family profit center. Trump has dedicated his presidency to being Obamas opposite, and on morality and ethics he quickly realized his goal. So why pick on the Obamas for buckraking? The question has been raised before. In 2017, Barack Obama set off alarms with reports that he was shaking the money tree on Wall Street and elsewhere, collecting up to $400,000 per speech. Matthew Yglesias at Vox criticized the money-grubbing as a boon to right-wing populists eager to portray the Democratic icon as just another rotten insider. Daniel Gross at Slate countered that if the success of liberal politics depends on virtue signaling by former presidents, then money-grubbing is the least of liberalisms problems. Im with Yglesias „ and not only because rightwing populism is a toxic and mutating force that requires strong remedies. Countless news articles describe how vast shares of the nations wealth flow to the very richest, while middle incomes have stagnated or declined in recent decades and the poor remain economically marooned. Meanwhile, corporate boards blithely preside over a system in which the ratio of CEO pay to median-worker pay is 130-to-1, according to Bloomberg data. The Obamas are already very wealthy. They are reported to have received a combined $65 million for their two books. And if their finances ever go south, they have the capacity to generate income virtually overnight. Bill and Hillary Clinton were also very wealthy. But, as people often do, they concluded that far more than enough was actually not enough at all. Greed has damaged both of their reputations while supplying fodder for right-wing propaganda. The Obamas have a chance to set a different example, finding a mean between the relative modesty of Jimmy Carter and the wanton moneymaking of the Clintons. Writing a book is a legitimate way for political celebrities to make a lot of money. It requires months of work „ even with a ghostwriter. Like Barack Obamas speeches, however, Michelle Obamas arena book tourŽ looks like a relatively easy way to cash in on the renown and public affection nurtured over a decade in public life. The payoff will be in the millions „ even if 10 percent of arena sales go to charities, as reported. In office, the Obamas showed grace and courage under fire and a keen appreciation, in policy as well as rhetoric, for the travails of the non-rich. They have every right to forge a comfortable and secure life after leaving the White House. No one should begrudge them getting wealthy. But good politics, in the presidential afterlife as in the campaign trenches, requires high public standards and personal scruples. Even in this increasingly unequal society and dangerously polarized era, its OK to get rich from political celebrity. Its not OK to get obscenely rich from it.

How many more will come forward? These are delay tactics to get through the November election. Democrats hope voters will return them to power so they can block any Supreme Court nominations and impeach the president, reversing the 2016 election results. Where will the investigation start? Ford testified she cant remember the year the incident happened, she cant remember how she got to the house party or how she got home. How convenient. Mark Judge, Kavanaughs friend, who Ford says was with him at the party, has said in written statements that he does not recallŽ the event. He has now, however, agreed to cooperate with the FBI investigation. Another witness,Ž Leland Ingham Keyser, whom Ford described as a lifelong friend, has said through her lawyer that while she does not refute Fords account, she ...does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with or without Dr. Ford.Ž Here are some other things the FBI might look into. Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., was confronted in an elevator by a woman named Ana Maria Archila. She claimed to have been sexually abused as a child but never told her parents. A CNN camera just happened to broadcast the moment live. Archila is the executive director for the Center for Popular Democracy, a liberal nonprofit advocacy group, which has received funding from the Open Society Foundations, underwritten by liberal activist George Soros, and the Democracy Alliance in which Soros is a member. Could Soros be behind this smear of Kavanaugh? Since no charges have been filed by Ford with any local authority, precisely what will the FBI be investigating? One doesnt have to be Nostradamus to make a prediction. If, in fact, the FBI interviews are limited to those witnesses already named by Ford and their denials are repeated to FBI agents, it is highly doubtful that will be enough for Democrats to vote to confirm Kavanaugh. They will have other excuses. Will it be enough for the moderateŽ Republicans, who frequently bow to the wishes of Democrats but receive no reciprocity, to vote for Kavanaugh? Possibly, but thats not guaranteed. There will be other ploys by some Democrats and liberal activist groups whose goal is to keep another constitutional conservative off the court. Sexual harassment charges are just a means to that end and to them the ends appear to justify any means, including bearing false witness against a good man. Who benefits politically from this fiasco? Rush Limbaugh initially said that if Kavanaugh is not confirmed, Republicans will pay by losing their congressional majority. A day later he said he now believes it will benefit Republicans if they take their anger over Kavanaughs treatment to the polls and oust Democrats for their outrageous behavior. Well know which scenario is correct in about 30 days. Readers may email Cal Thomas at tcaeditors@tribpub.com.ANOTHER OPINIONDelay, deceive and destroy Cal Thomas

A8 Thursday, October 4, 2018 | DailyCommercial.com By Malcolm Ritter, Jim Heintz and Christopher ChesterThe Associated PressSTOCKHOLM Three sci-entists won the Nobel Prize in chemistry Wednesday for using a sped-up version of evolution to create new proteins that have led to a best-selling drug and other products.The Royal Swedish Academy of Science said their work has led to the develop-ment of medications, biofuels and a reduced environmental impact from some industrial processes. Frances Arnold of the Cali-fornia Institute of Technology in Pasadena was awarded half of the 9-million-kronor ($1.01 million) prize, while the other half was shared by George Smith of the University of Missouri and Gregory Winter of the MRC molecular biology lab in Cambridge, England. Arnold is only the fifth woman to win a chemistry Nobel since the prizes began in 1901.The winners have taken control of evolution and used it for purposes that bring the greatest benefit to humankind, the Nobel committee said.In nature, evolution proceeds slowly as random genetic mutations generate variety in organisms and proteins, and those versions that work best in their environment persist for future generations. The research honored Wednesday mim-icked that process by inducing mutations in proteins and selecting those that best met the goals of the research.Smith, 77, and Winter, 67, worked with viruses called phages that infect bacteria. Smith showed in 1985 that inserting DNA into these viruses would make them display proteins linked to that DNA on their surfaces. It was a way to find an unknown gene for a known protein.Winter adapted the approach to create useful antibodies, proteins that target and grab onto disease-related targets. Winter introduced mutations to make antibodies progressively better at binding to their tar-gets. In 1994, for example, he developed antibodies that grab onto cancer cells.The first pharmaceutical based on Winters work, AbbVies adalimumab, was approved for sale in 2002. Its used to treat immune-system disorders, including rheuma-toid arthritis, psoriasis and inflammatory bowel diseases, the academy said.Sold as Humira in the U.S. and under other brand names elsewhere, it brought AbbVie $18.4 billion in revenue last year, in part because of its price: about $5,000 a month without insurance coverage in the U.S.Other antibodies produced by this approach fight cancer, neutralize the anthrax toxin and slow down lupus, the Swedish academy said.Dr. Wayne Marasco of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston said the lab tech-nique developed by Smith and Winter was revolutionary ... and its used today, every day.Arnold, 62, was seeking ways to make improved enzymes, which are proteins that encourage chemical reactions to occur. In 1993, she showed the power of directed evolution for doing that.First she created random mutations in DNA that lets cells produce an enzyme. Then she slipped these mutated genes into bacteria, which pumped out thousands of different variants of the enzyme.One variant did a particu-larly good job at a certain task, so she made a new round of mutations in this variant. That produced another vari-ant that worked better. When she made mutant versions of that variant, she got an even better version. It contained a combination of 10 mutations that nobody could have predicted would work so well, the Swedish academy said.Techniques for directed evolution have improved since then and Arnold has been at the leading edge, the academy said. Her tailored enzymes have become impor-tant for making medications and other valuable substances like renewable fuels.Her work is incredible, Matt Hartings, an associate chemistry professor at American University, told The Associated Press.Arnold, reached by tele-phone at an airport in Dallas, told the AP, I predict that we will see many more Nobel chemistry prizes for women.She learned she had won when she was unceremoni-ously woken up at 4 a.m. in her hotel room in Dallas.The phone rang and I was certain it was one of my kids or some emergency, but it wasnt. First I was stunned, like somebody hit me over the head with something, and then I started to wake up, she said.Smith credited others for the work that led to his breakthrough.Very few research break-throughs are novel. Virtually all of them build on what went on before. Its happenstance. That was certainly the case with my work, he told the AP.Of the pre-dawn phone call from Stockholm inform-ing him of his win, Smith said: Its a standard joke that someone with a Swed-ish accent calls and says You won! But there was so much static on the line, I knew it wasnt any of my friends.Winter said an encounter with a cancer p atient early in his career made him realize the importance of his work.The woman was receiving his then-experimental anti-body treatment. Even though Winter didnt know whether it would work, the patient was grateful for whatever extra time the treatment would give her to spend with her husband.Winter says he realized afterward there was a moral imperative to ensure what was produced could be used for public benefit.In other Nobel prizes this year, the medicine prize went Monday to James Allison of the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and Tasuku Honjo of Kyoto University, who developed an approach for unleashing the immune system on cancers, helping doctors fight many advanced-stage cancer tumors.Scientists from the United States, Canada and France shared the physics prize Tues-day for revolutionizing the use of lasers in research.Arthur Ashkin became the oldest Nobel Prize laureate at 96, while Donna Strickland of the University of Waterloo in Canada became only the third woman to win a physics Nobel. Strickland had worked with the third winner, Frenchman Gerard Mourou of the Ecole Polytechnique and the Uni-versity of Michigan.The winner of the Nobel Peace Prize is to be announced Friday and the Nobel Memo-rial Prize in Economic Sciences will be revealed on Monday.Chemistry Nobel shared by 3 scientistsBiochemical engineer Frances Arnold, George Smith and Gregory Winter have been awarded the 2018 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

Not saying I wouldve. ... Its just knowing I couldve made a difference in that game, just my presence. Not being out there really killed me, and I let my teammates down. Thats what hurt me the most.ŽJefferson is trying to make amends.The senior returned the following week and has been part of a defensive turnaround for No. 22 Florida (4-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference), which hosts fifth-ranked LSU (5-0, 2-0) on Saturday. The Gators have played con-siderably better the last three games, looking much more like the kind of defense that defined the program in recent years than the one that stum-bled down the stretch in 2017 and flopped against the Wild-cats in its SEC opener.Florida credits having Jefferson and linebacker David Reese (ankle) on the field, more physical practices and increased confidence in coor-dinator Todd Granthams system as the main reasons for the improvement.Anytime you get that familiarity with it and you have a comfort level, it allows you to play fast,Ž Grantham said. Its honestly Gators enjoy defensive turnaroundFlorida defensive lineman Cece Jefferson is one reason Florida is enjoying a defensive turnaround.

The cars will run a new engine configuration for next Julys Coke Zero Sugar 400. Restrictor plates have been used in all Cup Series races at Daytona since 1988.We have been using the combination of a tapered spacer and restrictor plate at Daytona for the past couple of years to reduce air flow into the engine,Ž Speedway president Chip Wile said.NASCAR has made the tapered spacer package more efficient which, in turn, has allowed the teams to eliminate the need for a restrictor plate.ŽA NASCAR official said plates will be used at Daytona for a variety of reasons including running the biggest event of the season with a known package.ŽAccording to a bulletin issued by NASCAR Tuesday, NASCAR will go to a 550 horsepower, 0.922-inch tapered spacer, which will be used at oval tracks longer than one mile.Aero ducts, which are two openings in the grille area of the car, will be used at a majority of oval tracks larger than 1-mile in length. The tracks exempt include Atlanta, Pocono, Darlington and Homestead.The configuration is similar, but not as restrictive, to what NASCAR used for the All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May.

As long as Patrick Reed isnt one of them. Three days on Le Golf National went bad enough for a powerful U.S. team that lost its way off the tee and on the scoreboard. Europe won eight consecutive matches, built a fourpoint lead going into Sundays singles session and never gave the Americans much hope on its way to another victory on home soil. And then Reed managed to make them look even worse. In a telephone interview with The New York Times later Sunday, Reed blamed Jordan Spieth for them not playing together and U.S. captain Jim Furyk for twice leaving Reed on the bench. The issues obviously with Jordan not wanting to play with me,Ž Reed told the Times. I dont have any issue with Jordan. When it comes right down to it, I dont care if I like the person Im paired with or if the person likes me as long as it works and it sets up the team for success.

That seems like small consola-tion now.Kyle Hendricks gave up a tiebreaking single to Tony Wolters in the 13th inning, sending the Cubs to a 2-1 loss to the Colo-rado Rockies in a marathon wild-card game on Tues-day night.Chicago lost two home games with a chance to reach the NL Division Series. The Cubs scored a total of two runs over 22 innings, dropping a tiebreaker to Milwaukee for the NL Central championship and then getting knocked out of the playoffs by the Rockies.They squandered a dominant start by Jon Lester, got shut down by Kyle Freeland and wasted several big scoring oppor-tunities. Hendricks came in to retire the final two batters in the 12th and got the first two in the 13th before running into trouble.Trevor Story grounded a single through the left side and Gerardo Parra lined one to right, putting runners at first and third.

He cares only about winning. Thats the European way. Thats what America needs. Sam Torrance, who won the clinching match in 1985 when Europe won for the first time since 1957, said in one of the inspirational videos for Team Europe leading up to the matches: Its not about taking part. Its about winning. Nothing else.Ž They win as one. They dont lose very often. European captain Thomas Bjorn said poignantly after Europe built a 10-6 advantage going into singles: This is 12 players, and we do this together. Weve been playing with eight in every session, but its about 12, and we felt like weve been a whole team on the golf course every session.Ž But the passion of Reed came off as poison with his remarks to the Times. He made it clear that he is one of 12 only if he gets his way. Reed didnt get to play with Spieth, the only partner he has had in two previous appearances. He said he was blindsided when Spieth was paired with Justin Thomas, a longtime friend making his Ryder Cup debut before a European crowd. Read between the lines of his rant and Reed complained about getting stuck with Tiger Woods, his idol. Any time you get to tee it up with Big Cat, its always fun,Ž Reed said when the pairings came out. Except when you lose. They were 3 up through 10 holes when Francesco Molinari and Tommy Fleetwood made five birdies over the last seven holes to win on the 17th hole. The next morning against the same European juggernaut, Reed was in the water, constantly in the rough, out-of-bounds and usually in his pocket. The match lasted 14 holes. Woods went back out with Bryson DeChambeau. Reed sat again. His performance Saturday morning would not have provided much help in alternate shot Saturday afternoon. For somebody as successful in the Ryder Cup as I am, I dont think its smart to sit me twice,Ž Reed said. Looking back, maybe hes right. Furyk should have sat him three times. That Captain AmericaŽ nickname is going to be hard for Reed to earn back, if he ever does. The loss was not Furyks fault. All a captain can do is get players in position to perform. The performance is up to them. Three of his wild-card picks „ Woods, DeChambeau and Phil Mickelson „ combined to go 0-9. No one was complaining about his picks on the way to Paris. They should call this the Hindsight Cup. No one mentioned problems with the U.S. system after the Americans won two years ago in a home game at Hazeltine. If anything, Europe was having a transition year in the Ryder Cup with six rookies, none of whom qualified or were picked for this team. Yes, the Americans have a problem in the Ryder Cup: They have to play Europe. And now they have another one. Steve Stricker is the likely choice to be the next U.S. captain when the Ryder Cup goes to Whistling Straits, about an hour from where he grew up in Wisconsin. What does he do with a player who publicly puts his own interests ahead of the team? Not that Reed cares what he says. He caused a buzz in Boston when he took to Twitter after going to Fenway Park to sarcastically thank the PGA Tour for free tickets that put him, his wife and her sister in the line drive section.Ž Reed, who earned just short of $5 million this year, said he paid $650 to upgrade the tickets and ended up in the same section as the rest of the PGA Tour at the game. He took a dig at Spieth this year at Bay Hill while asking for relief from a palmetto bush. When denied free relief, Reed said, I guess my name needs to be Jordan Spieth.Ž He then asked for a third opinion from an unbiased source.Ž Reed doesnt mind being portrayed as the Ugly American as long as it means winning the Ryder Cup. It wont make that any easier when hes ugly to his own team.

[AP PHOTO/ FRANCOIS MORI] extensionsŽ on either side of the spoiler.The 2019 rules package will allow stock cars to use an open engine (750 horse-power) at short tracks and road courses.These rules are designed to promote more side by side racing and should give teams with light budgets a better chance to compete with NASCARs elite.Scott Miller, NASCAR senior vice president of competition, said the sanctioning body has been working with automakers and race teams for more than two years on this rules package.One thing we dont foresee happening is 40 cars in a gigantic pack bunched together like we see at Daytona and Talladega,Ž Miller said in a phone interview from NASCARs R&D Center in North Carolina.Our intention is not to create pack racing at these 1.5-mile and 2-mile race tracks. We want to tighten the competition and get more side by side racing.ŽBubba Wallace, who is finishing his rookie season driving the No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports Chevrolet, gave the new rules two thumbs up. Well, I finished second in the Daytona 500 with the current package, led laps at Charlotte with the new package, so I think this is all good,Ž Wallace said.We want to run fast, I think any racer wants to, but I do want whats best for the sport and the fans. Youre going to get a lot of different opinions no matter what you do, but thats why you have the leaders of the sport. They make it fair for everyone and then we go race. I just care about winning.ŽMiller said the new rules should help teams that dont have mass amounts of funding, but said this package wont necessarily level the playing field.A lions share of the races will be won by the best drivers and best teams,Ž he said. No matter what we do ruleswise, certain teams with the resources they have, and certain drivers they have, are going to be the front-running teams.ŽTrack owners and promoters were also excited to see the changes. Marcus Smith, who is president of Speedway Motorsports Inc., which owns Charlotte, was all for the new rules.Racing is all about entertaining the fans,Ž Smith said. The 2019 rules package is designed to create more side-byside racing than ever before. NASCAR, the race teams and the manufacturers deserve a big thank-you for all of the hard work theyve put into this process.Ž NASCARFrom Page B1over seventh-place Interlachen.Mount Dora, in fifth place when the initial rankings were released, dropped to ninth place with a PPR of 32.80.Umatilla (25.00) is 11th in the region.In Class 6A, South Lake (39.20) earned the sixth-highest PPR in Region 2 despite losing its third-straight game last week.

MDCAs Gabe Curtis wins prestigious raceMount Dora Christian Academy cross country runner Gabriel Curtis picked up a win recently in the FLRunners.com Invitational at Holloway Park in Lakeland.Curtis topped the field in the boys Race of Champions with a time 15 minutes, 57.34 seconds to beat Esteros Hugh Brit-tenham (16:01.96 finish time) by more than four seconds.The MDCA senior led the Bulldogs to a ninthplace finish in the team standings with 273 points, well off the pace established by Miami Belen Jesuit Preparatory School, which won with 71 points. Jackson Pruim, another MDCA senior, finished 25th with a time of 16:53.14.In the girls Race of Champions, The Villages Rebecca Clark finished fourth with a time of 18:11.29.

As a result, Tavares was ninth in the team competition with 276 points and East Ridge was 13th with 401 points.MDCAs girls team was 32nd with 810 points. South Lakes Heuser receives o erBaylee Heuser, South Lakes senior quarterback, announced earlier this week he has received an offer to play at McDan-iel College, an NCAA Division III program in Westminster, Maryland.Heuser has completed 56 percent of his passes this season (56 of 100) for 887 yards with four touchdowns and five interceptions. Last year, he threw for 1,701 yards with 14 scoring passes and only one interception.Nicknamed the Green Terror, McDaniel was known as Western Mary-land College until 2002.Among those who played at McDaniel when it was known as Western Maryland include quar-terback Eugene StoneyŽ Willis, often credited with inventing the shovel pass. Bill Shepherd, who played for the Boston Redskins and the Detroit Lions in the National Football League from 1935 to 1940, also played at Western Maryland.Dick Harlow coached the Green Terror from 1926 to 1934 and recorded three unbeaten seasons during that span. One of Harlows players at Western Maryland was Rip Engle, who was head coach for 16 years at Penn State until he retired after the 1965 season and was replaced by Joe Paterno. Harlow and Engle were eventually inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.Heuser received his first offer in August to Clarke University, an NAIA school in Dubuque, Iowa. NOTEBOOKFrom Page B1a cumulative effect of all of that thats allowed us to playŽ better.After consecutive road wins against Tennessee and Mississippi State, the Gators return home for arguably their toughest test of the season. The Tigers have won six of the last eight in the series, including the last two in Gainesville.It could be a statement game for us,Ž Florida safety Brad Stewart said. Really we just want to come out and show that we can be one of the top programs and we are one of the top programs still. We want to show everybody, all the doubters, we hear all the words, all the talk and we want to show everybody that we for real.ŽThe defense has made strides since losing to Kentucky, forcing two key turnovers early against the Volunteers and allowing just 202 yards against the Bulldogs. Throw in Colorado State, and the Gators have given up 2.59 yards a carry during their three-game win-ning streak.And they have 12 sacks over the same span.We just have to get to the quarterback,Ž defensive tackle T.J. Slaton said. You have to make him a true quarterback. You cant let him run. We have to make him throw bad balls. We have to keep pressure on him. We have to get hits, not ille-gal hits, but we have to get hits on the quarter-back and we have to get sacks.ŽKentucky handled Florida on both lines of scrimmage, and no one was more surprised than the Gators defenders.Grantham and coach Dan Mullen responded with more intense prac-tice designed to make Florida tougher in the trenches. Jefferson and Reese, who have played a combined 65 games at Florida, returned. They solidified holes and made Florida deep enough to rotate as many as 22 guys on defense. That depth and more experience in Granthams 3-4 scheme also helped.All we need is seven points,Ž Stewart said. The defense is going to come out and do our thing. Were going to come out and were going to ball. Were going to play hard, run to the ball and be physi-cal. All we need is seven points and our offense to manage the game and get good field position. The defense, we should do the rest.ŽNo one would be more pleased with that than Jefferson, especially after being unable to play early.Youve got to be accountable in every situation,Ž Jefferson said. Thats just a part of being a man, and thats what this game teaches you. You got to be accountable. You got to take care of your business. You got to be where youre supposed to be at. And if you dont, the results I got are some of the things that can happen to you.I definitely think the guys, especially the younger guys and some of the older guys, will learn from my mistakes.Ž GATORSFrom Page B1

[DAILY COMMERCIAL FILE] A big weekend of fall entertainment coming upSee WEEKEND, C6 By Ed Symkus More Content NowThere shouldnt be any questions about the story in A Star Is Born.Ž That part of it is tried and true, with Hollywood returning to it every couple of decades for a freshenedup remake. Actually, its been four decades since the most recent one, with Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Streisand as the established star on his way down and the newcomer on her way up. The story has always been about the relationship between the two characters and an examination of their careers right around and soon after the time they meet. Now those roles have been handed to Bradley Cooper as a hugely successful country-rocker, and Lady Gaga as a waitress who only wants to sing. The questions for this new one are: Can she act? Can he sing? And even more important, seeing as this is the first time Cooper has called the shots, can he direct? The three questions get three big affirmatives. This is a splashy and spectacular modern-day romantic drama with music. Sure, it can be accused of depending on a string of coincidences to get the story spinning: After a big show, Jackson (Cooper), exhausted and in need of a drink, tells his driver to stop at a bar, any bar. The one he enters; not knowing its a drag bar, which provides some early humor; just happens to be the one where Ally (Gaga) sings at night, hoping to forget her day job and keep her musical dreams alive. And there are plenty of cliches to deal with: Hes a hard drinker and a pill popper, but even in his stupor, the moment he hears her launch into a gorgeous rendition of La Vie en Rose,Ž hes smitten, captivated, both by her voice and by her. Later on, their harmonizing, whether its the vocalizing kind or the romantic kind, is perfect. Even later, after he convinces her to go for it and she begins to attain it, someone else enters the scene, your standard record producer whos looking for the next big thing, trying to make her his own. Yes, all Hollywood cliches, but somehow, none of them get in the way of where this film is going. There are a few points where you start to wonder about who this story is really about; Jackson or Abby. Truth is, its kind of a tie. He falls for her, she falls for him, their careers meld The stars of Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga keep rising in A Star Is Born remakeSee STAR, C6

DEAR ABBY: I have been in a strong relationship with my girlfriend for ve years. We are very much in love. I have told her I don't want to get married and have kids until I have attained some level of success. She understands my desire to be a good provider, but she's 29 and worried about her biological clock if she waits much longer. I work full time, take night classes and I'm trying to put myself on a promising career path. Is my request unreasonable? We want it to work, but being able to provide at least a middle-class lifestyle is very important to me. -AMBITIOUS GUY IN SAN DIEGO DEAR AMBITIOUS: It would be wonderful if there was a blueprint for success in life and marriage, but too often, "life" intervenes. You and your girlfriend should have a serious discussion about the future, because you both have to be comfortable with what happens next. If she wants to start a family right away and you feel you can't afford it, neither of you will be happy. If she's willing to wait another few years to start a family (her biological clock should still be ticking, or she could freeze her eggs), then it's important you agree about what needs to be in place nancially in order for that to happen.DEAR ABBY: My parents like to visit us and bring along their little dog, "Trufe." We are happy to have them and their dog, however we have an issue. My parents allow Trufe on the furniture. We have a dog and love her to pieces, but feel that furniture is for humans. Because our family likes to relax by sprawling on the couch at times, it's not as pleasant once a pet has been lying there. My husband has voiced this concern but has been ignored. We are going to visit my parents soon, and I'm wondering how to handle this. We love everyone and don't want to hurt their feelings. I appreciate your advice. -OFF THE COUCH IN COLORADO DEAR OFF THE COUCH: If you and your husband prefer that animals stay off the furniture in your home, that's your privilege. In your home, your rules should be respected. If your parents choose to ignore your request, they should stay in a pet-friendly hotel or leave Trufe at home. HOWEVER, when you visit in their home, their rules should apply. And if your husband doesn't want to sit or lie on their couch because of the animal hair or the odor, he should sit on a dining chair that can be wiped down, take a washable cover to throw on the couch or stay home. DEAR ABBY: I've had an online friend for three years. We met on a dating/irt app in high school and recently met in person. We aren't currently dating, but it's inevitable at this point. He's funny, down-toearth and good-looking as hell! What he doesn't know is that prior to meeting him, I had a relationship with a woman, and I think I'm in love with her. I broke things off with her, but now I miss her more and more. I want to reach out to her, but I want him and me to get closer as well. What should I do? -GIRL WITH OPTIONS IN MAINE DEAR G.W.O.: What you should do is be honest with both of them and let the scenario play out naturally. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

YESTERDAYS SOLUTION BRIDGE CRYPTOQUOTE HOROSCOPES TODAY IN HISTORY DIVERSIONS HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR THURSDAY, OCT. 4, 2018:This year you present yourself as social and generally upbeat. You always seem ready to have a talk or share information. You naturally express your personality. If you are single, you nd that whether you are conscious of it or not, you like being a free agent. Be honest about your likes and desires. If you are attached, you enjoy your signicant other to no end. The two of you spend a lot of time together. LEO likes to party with you!ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Your temper seems to be close to the surface. You might have had some experience taming the anger within, which makes it less likely that you will explode. Be forgiving if someone starts acting out or simply becomes wild. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) A domestic issue emerges that could put you deep into thought. Reverie might not be appropriate at work! Extremes seem to mark your day. Connect with others, and express your concerns. You are able to ourish once you get past a hassle. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) You have a way of expressing yourself and your needs. You might want to take a break from the immediate situation. Go off and take a walk, then share your thoughts openly. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Build yourself up. Consider taking a class, or schedule more frequent gym visits. Be careful when dealing with a partner. Stay centered, and do not allow yourself to be thrown off-kilter. A conversation helps you put together the big picture. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) You beam and draw others toward you. As a result, your positive attitude goes far. Others tend to reveal much more when you are open with them. Watch a tendency to be excessive in your self-expression, no matter what you do! Listen to feedback. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) You could be dealing with more than your share of details and issues. You also have a lot of information to digest. You will have a new beginning if you decide to change certain patterns. Think deeply about a minor revision of a segment of your life. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Get down to basics when having a discussion. You cannot avoid a conversation for long -and the sooner you have it, the better. Your anger is close to the surface. Try to avoid an eruption of fury. Be careful if you feel hot under the collar. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You decide to have a long-overdue conversation with a higher-up. You could have difculty getting a situation under control, especially as you might be harboring some undened resentment or anger. Honor your differences. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) When trying to piece together a problematic situation, detach and try to imagine what it is like to be in the other persons shoes. Identifying with others helps you come up with a reasonable solution for all parties involved. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22JAN. 19) You are able to look at a problem from a unique perspective. As a result of your unusual view, you see what others dont. In fact, a solution might not be needed, but rather understand ing and empathy toward each other. Ask questions, if necessary. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Defer to others, and let them clearly express their agendas. You are unlikely to lose yourself if you allow another person to dominate for a while. You also might understand why you do not like being as passive as you are. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Deal with a work-related matter. Your schedule might be intense and very busy. You could wonder what way would be best to present a new idea. You might want to wait for now. Ask a close loved one if you are projecting negativity.

But then his hard-living begins to take its toll, and her ambition sparks her rise. Theyre a happy couple, for a while, and Cooper does a nice job establishing that in close-ups of them together, but he also excels at showing them and their differences in separate closeups of them. He also displays a confidence in directing actors, getting a couple of the best performances from; no surprise; Sam Elliott as Jacks older brother Bobby, whos back story discloses that hes taken care of Jack since childhood, and continues to as his manager, and from the fellow who plays Abbys Sinatra-loving and showbiz-savvy dad Lorenzo. It wasnt till the credits ran at the end that I realized it was Andrew Dice Clay. Theres a great deal of energy in the film, even when the drama of it starts to bring the mood down via jealousy, drugand drinking problems, and the clashing of career paths. The script has no qualms about aiming barbs at the stardom it at first appears to be celebrating. That record producer forces her to put on lots of makeup, add costumed dancers to her act, and change the style of music shed been singing. It also seemed to me that the songs in the latter parts of the film are far more formulaic than what she did earlier. Take that, music business. If youve seen any of the previous versions, you know what course this one will take, and how youll feel at the end. If this is all new to you, you might want to bring along a couple of tissues, for purposes of eye dabbing.
