Ambas-sador Nikki Haley abruptly announced Tuesday she is resigning at the end of the year, raising fresh questions about the Trump team and about the outspoken diplo-mats own political ambitions.The news blindsided some key U.S. allies and many congressional Republicans involved in foreign policy matters. And it came less than a month before congressional elections, thwarting White House efforts to project an image of stability, with the loss of one of the highest-profile women in the administration at a time when womens votes are being vigorously pursued.But Haley, the former South Carolina governor, has often been an unpredictable and independent force in the Trump administration. At times she has offered strikingly different perspectives on world events from her more isolationist-minded boss. A smiling Haley announced her decision at an Oval Office meeting alongside the president, bringing up her own political prospects even as she underscored her continued support for Trump. Without prompting from reporters, she said she had no plans to run for president in 2020Ž and would campaign for Trump.Haley, who is 46 and not personally wealthy, hinted in her resignation letter to Trump that she is headed to the private sector.See HALEY, A5Haley to leave in latest shake-up By Roxanne Brownroxanne.brown@dailycommercial.comMOUNT DORA „ When Steamroller Studios owners started searching for a new home fortheir character animation and game devel-opment company a while back, they prioritized finding someplace spacious but also with the atmosphere, synergy and function to lure the "best-of-the-best" talent.Since January, weve grown from less than 30 people to more than 60 counting the people we have working remotely, but thats as far as we could go.

LONDONPoisoning suspect honored by Putin in 2014, UK group saysOne of the two suspects in the poisoning of a Russian ex-spy in England is a medical doctor in Russian military intelligence who was honored as a Hero of the Russian Federation by President Vladimir Putin in 2014, a group of Brit-ish investigators said Tuesday.British police say two GRU agents traveling under the aliases Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Borishov used a Soviet-made nerve agent to poison Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the English city of Salisbury in March.Investigative organization Bellingcat said it had used documents and other research to identify Petrov as Dr. Alex-ander Mishkin, a member of Russias GRU intelligence agency. The Associated Press A quake, a tsunami and a missing son among tragedies faced in PaluBy Todd PitmanThe Associated PressPALU, Indonesia „ The Muslim call to prayer had just started echoing across the Indonesian city of Palu when Musrifahs home began to shake violently.Family photos fell from the walls. Dishes and glasses crashed to the floor. A televi-sion smashed onto the white tiles of their living room, prompting Musrifah to scoop her 2-year-old son into her arms. Seconds later, the concrete sides of their one-story house cracked, then crumbled, fill-ing the air inside with pale clouds of dust.Mommy!Ž the terrified boy cried, his body trembling as his hands pressed into her back.Dont worry,Ž she told him. Im here.Ž It was 6:02 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28, and what followed over the next 10 minutes was a catastrophe remarkable even by the standards of disaster-prone Indonesia. The magnitude 7.5 quake trig-gered not just a tsunami that leveled coastal neighborhoods but also a geological phenom-enon known as liquefaction in which the soil began to move like a liquid and swallowed entire neighborhoods into the earth.The disasters would kill nearly 2,000 people. Thou-sands more would go missing. Among them was Musrifahs son, Bima Alfarezi. The ground always tremblesGrowing up on the island of Sulawesi, where Palu is located, Musrifah had grown used to earthquakes. Indonesia, a vast archipelago of 260 million people, is located along one of the most seismically active regions of the world, an arc of volcanoes and fault lines in the Pacific Basin known as the Ring of Fire.Though they could be scary, quakes in Palu rarely caused severe damage. After a 2004 tsunami killed 230,000 people in a dozen countries, more than half of them in Indonesia, the threat of deadly waves was seared into the national imagination. But Palu had not experienced one in Musrifahs lifetime, and most people believed the city was safe because it sits at the base of a long, relatively narrow bay shadowed on both sides by lush mountains.We thought that would protect usŽ from the violence of the sea, said Musrifah, a nurse who like many Indone-sians uses a single name.And few here, if any, had ever heard of liquefaction. Devastating walls of water The shallow quake was 200 times more powerful than the atomic bomb U.S. forces dropped on Hiroshima during World War II, according to Indonesian authorities, and it triggered a massive tsunami that was barreling straight down Palu Bay.Cellphone video aired on local TV showed the moment the waves long white cres-cent, clearly visible in the dark green water, approached the shore.A man filming the scene from a parking garage yells to those below: Tsunami! Tsunami! ... Run! Go!ŽAs people shriek and pan-icked drivers honk, people can be seen running and climbing over walls to get away from the beach.When the wave crashes through the shore, it sweeps up maroon-roofed homes, spins them around and smashes them into swamped vehicles. As the houses break apart, swirling in a dark soup of debris, the man begins to weep: Oh God! Oh God!ŽTrapped on her shattered terrace, Musrifah had no idea what was happening. The sea had burst through what was left of her house, and her family was standing in water rising above their knees.Her only thought was escape. She squeezed her son tighter as he repeated: Im scared, Mommy, Im scared.ŽTwo minutes later, Musrifah heard another roar. Instinctively, she looked up toward the sky, above the rubble that blocked her way, and glimpsed a dark wall of water, its approaching crest towering just above a palm tree.Before she could blink, the wave smashed down on top of them and everything went dark. The crushing force of the tsunami ripped Bima away and spun Musrifah upside down in the churn.Under the water, she grabbed hold of a concrete slab and was able to free herself from the wave. By then, she had been carried a kilometer (half a mile) away. She was alone.Soaked and shocked, all she could do was call out, her haunting cries piercing the darkness: Bima! Bima! Where is my Bima?ŽThe earthquake and tsunami hit the coast with such power that the massive yellow spine of the citys iconic yellow Teluk Palu Bridge snapped, sending it into the river below. Along both sides of Palu Bay, the coastline was littered with smashed vehicles, jagged slabs of debris and downed electric-ity poles.All that was left of Musrifahs home was its foun-dation. Not a single possession remained.10 minutes of terror in IndonesiaIn this Oct. 5 photo, Musrifah, left, cries beside her husband Hakim and daughter Syafa Ramadi as they visit the area where their house used to stand before a massive earthquake and tsunami hit their seaside village in Palu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia.

Agents got a war-rant and determined through internet provider CenturyLink that the files were located at a Palm Avenue address.Agents went there and reportedly discovered seven photos and videos on a computer depicting children between the ages of 8 and 10 engaged in sex acts with other children and an adult.Troy Edward Ogden, 56, was charged with possession of child pornography.EUSTISReport: Angry mom offered $100 to beat up copApparently upset because a police officer had stopped to check out her adult son in the middle of the night, a Eustis woman reportedly took to Face-book to offer $100 to anyone who would beat up the officer.According to an arrest affida-vit, the officer was patrolling in the area of Hollywood Avenue and Liberty Street about 1 a.m. Saturday when he came upon two men standing outside a car near a home that had been the subject of repeated complaints about drug trafficking. The offi-cer checked out the two men, determined they were doing nothing illegal and then let them go, the report states.About 10 hours later, one of the mens mother, Hildagard Simmons, 50, walked into the Eustis Police Department and angrily demanded the name of the officer who detained her son. A little while later, she reportedly created a Facebook post offering $100 to anyone who would kick his (expletive).ŽSimmons was charged with solicitation to commit battery on a law enforcement officer.MILTONCounty jokingly warns Cantore to stay awayA Florida county threatened by Hurricane Michael is jokingly warning a television meteorologist to stay away.The Santa Rosa County Sheriffs Office posted a tongue-in-cheek trespass warning on Facebook for The Weather Channels Jim Cantore.

One-time fees on new homes will double in some areasBy Payne Ray pray@dailycommercial.comTAVARES … Lake County commissioners tentatively decided Tuesday to split the north impact fee district in two and raise impact fees in all but one region of the county.The move, which would have to be formally approved at a later meeting, affects new development in the county but will not otherwise affect people already living or operating businesses on developed land. The ordinance will go up for public hearing on Oct. 23. Transportation impact fees, which are charged to new developments based on the traffic impacts they create, are currently collected in three districts.New, mid-sized single-fam-ily homes are charged $500 in the north and central dis-tricts, and $2,706 in the south district.Under the new ordinance, those same homes would be assessed $1,000 in the new north-central and central districts.The new northeast district, also called the Wekiva district, will see impact fees jump immediately to $1,500 for new single-family homes.In Feb. 2019, the district will go up to around $2,000 impact fees, and in Aug. 2019 will join South Lake at its rate.The exact dollar amounts may change over the years based on inflation, according to County Engineer Fred Schneider.County commissioners made these adjustments based on a plan presented by an inde-pendent consultant, Bill Oliver, in conjunction with county staff.Lake Commission to raise impact feesUnder a plan tentatively adopted by the Lake County Commission Tuesday, impact fees on all new homes would rise over the next year. [DAILY COMMERCIAL FILE] By Dara KamNews Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ Keith Ivey has an image in his mind he cant let go. Its just a piece of paper that most people tuck into their wallets and forget.But for the 46-year-old Ivey, the voter registration card he received nearly three decades ago „ but never used „ rep-resents both hope and despair.Ivey is one of more than 1.4 million Floridians who lost the right to vote after being convicted of felonies. And hes one of those whose voting privilege would automatically be restored under Amendment 4, a constitutional proposal on the November ballot thats got backers as disparate as the American Civil Liberties Union and the Koch brothers.Iveys now a successful busi-nessman. He and his father operate a used-car dealership in Jacksonville.But for Ivey and hundreds of thousands of others, the excitement and nonstop attention surrounding the 2018 elections punctuate their inability to participate in one of the most basic components of a democracy: casting a ballot.Its very painful. Its a huge void. Its being voiceless. There are community leaders that you want to support or want to not support. You cant have that voice,Ž Ivey said.Amendment 4, heavily bankrolled by the ACLU, would automatically restore the right to vote for people who were convicted of felonies and who have completed their sentences, paid restitution and fulfilled parole or probation requirements. Floridians to decide on felon voting rightsBy Isabel DebreThe Associated PressJERUSALEM „ In a firstof-its-kind case, Israel has held an American graduate student at its international airport for a week, accusing her of supporting a Palestin-ian-led boycott movement against the Jewish state.Lara Alqasem, a 22-yearold American citizen with Palestinian grandparents, landed at Ben-Gurion Airport last Tuesday with a valid stu-dent visa.But she was barred from entering the country and ordered deported, based on suspicions that she supports a campaign that calls for boycotts, divestments, and sanctions against Israel.An Israeli court has ordered that she remain in custody while she appeals. The week-long detention is the longest anyone has been held in a boycott-related case, and it was not immediately clear on Tuesday when a decision would be made.Alqasem is a former presi-dent of the University of Florida chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine, a group that supports the boycott movement.The grassroots boycott campaign, known as BDS, has targeted Israeli businesses, cultural institutions and universities in what it says is nonviolent resistance to unjust and racist Israeli policies. But Israel says its true goal is to delegitimize and even destroy the country.Israel enacted a law last year banning any foreigner who "knowingly issues a public call for boycotting Israel" from entering the country."Lara served as president of a chapter of one of the most extreme and hate-filled anti-Israel BDS groups in the U.S.," said Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan, who is in charge of the Israeli gov-ernment's efforts against the boycott group. "Israel will not allow entry to those who work to harm the country, what-ever their excuse."On Tuesday, Erdan floated a possible compromise, saying in a radio interview that he would drop his efforts to expel her if she apologizes and renounces her BDS support.Ex-UF student detained in Israel over boycottAlqasem City OKs restoring Mote-Morris house to original useBy Frank Stanfieldfrankstanfield@dailycommercial.comLEESBURG „ City commissioners Monday gave the nod to start restoring the historic Mote-Morris house that was severely damaged by fire in February.Brown & Brown Insurance will pay up to $1.1 million to restore the iconic structure to its original use „ an office, a place for small history tours, and a spot for special events like wedding receptions.Jay Hurley paused before joining the other four commissioners in voting to proceed. He told the Daily Commercial last month that he would like to see the building used for a restaurant, bed and breakfast, or pos-sibly even a new home for the Leesburg Arts Center.I would rather see something like that than a museum where 10 people walk in and say, Thats nice, now what?Ž You could just take $750,000 (in insur-ance money) to demolish it,Ž he said Monday. Oh no,Ž said former Mayor Sanna Hen-derson, who was watching the proceedings from the audience.As it is, the house, built in 1892, cannot be restored to its former national historic registry status, with period window glass, plaster and other authentic touches, because it would be too expensive. Nor can the city install such modern features such as elevators, without running up the costs, according to Al Minner, city manager.If the city decided to change its use, wouldnt it be cheaper to change the floor plan now? Hurley asked.Minner said the insurance company would only pay the $1.1 million if it is restored to its original use.The insurance company will understand if the city wants to change its use in, say, five years Minner said. They wont demand their money back.ŽTodd Drennan, an architect hired as a cost-estimate consultant on the Mote-Morris project, told commissioners it would be better to put a restaurant kitchen in a separate building.The insurance payout will pay for a fire sprinkler system, something that was not present in the house when it caught fire in the early morning hours of Feb. 20.The cause of the blaze was never determined, although police had dealt with homeless people at Magnolia and 12th Street, who had tried to set the house gazebo on fire. The issue now goes before the citys His-toric Preservation Board, which will review contractor plans. Henderson is on the board.The board must approve big changes to homes in the historic district. It then goes back to the City Commission for the final vote. The city approved setting up the historic district in 2003. It includes more than 300 parcels, including the downtown retail district.Sticking to the planLeesburgs historic Mote-Morris house was gutted by “ re on Feb. 20.

A4 Wednesday, October 10, 2018 | GAINESVILLE$25M for parents of student killed by garbage truckJurors have awarded $25 million to the parents of a University of Florida student who was run over and killed by a garbage truck near campus.The Gainesville Sun reports that an Alachua County jury awarded $12.5 million each on Friday to the parents of 20-year-old Abigail Dougherty. Dougherty was killed by a Waste Corporation of America garbage truck nearly two years ago. The jury found that WCA of Florida LLC was 80 percent liable.Gainesville police say Dougherty was attempt-ing to cross a busy intersection in October 2016 when the garbage truck hit her while making a right turn. The lawsuit filed by Pat Dougherty and Anita Forester says the truck driver was neg-ligent in not yielding the right of way.PALM COAST2 workers electrocuted at construction siteAuthorities say two Florida construction workers were electrocuted when the equipment they were operating struck a power line.News outlets report that 37-year-old Richard Hockaday and 39-year-old Gerald Anderson died Monday morning while working at a residential construction site in Palm Coast.The Flagler County Sheriffs Office says a concrete pump truck boom touched a highvoltage line, sending about 13,000 volts of electricity through the men.Hockaday and Anderson worked for Nomad Concrete Pumping, a subcontractor hired for the construction project.The Occupational Safety and Health Admin-istration is investigating the incident.Murderers and sex offenders would be excluded.Backers of the amend-ment estimate that about 1.4 million Floridians would have their voting rights restored, if the required 60 percent of voters approve the proposal.The November vote on Amendment 4 comes as Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet fight a federal judges ruling that said the states current rights-restoration system is unconstitutional.After taking office in 2011, Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi played key roles in changing the process to effectively make it harder for felons to get their rights restored.Under the changes, felons must wait five or seven years before applying to have their rights restored. After applications are filed, the process can take years to complete.The number of applications for restoration has dramatically dropped under Scott and the allRepublican Cabinet, which acts as the states Board of Executive Clemency.Since the changes went into effect, Scott „ whose support is required for any type of clemency to be granted „ and the board have restored the rights of 3,005 of the more than 30,000 convicted felons whove applied, according to the Florida Commission on Offender Review. As of Oct. 1, there was a back-log of 10,275 pending applications, according to the commission.U.S. District Judge Mark Walker this year sided with Fair Elections Legal Network and the law firm Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC in a lawsuit filed against the state on behalf of nine felons, who alleged that the states voterestoration process is discriminatory.Walker ordered the state to revamp the system, but, in a victory for Scott and the Cabi-net, the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in April blocked the federal judges order from going into effect. The appeals court hasnt issued a final ruling in the case.With voters already receiving mail-in ballots, organized opposition to Amendment 4 has not emerged.But critics of the mea-sure „ including Scott and former Congress-man Ron DeSantis, whos in a heated contest with Democrat Andrew Gillum to replace the governor „ maintain that the pro-posal treats convicted felons too leniently.The governor believes that in order for felons to have their rights restored, they have to demonstrate that they can live a life free of crime, show a will-ingness to request to have their rights restored and show restitution to the victims of their crime,Ž Lauren Schenone, a spokeswoman for Scotts U.S. Senate campaign, said in an email.DeSantis believes in second chances,Ž but with a caveat, according to campaign spokesman Stephen Lawson.He is in favor of giving offenders an opportunity to earn their rights back; however, he believes that automatic restoration is inappropriate as recidivism is still very high. Prior offenders must show their commit-ment to be a law-abiding member of their commu-nity after serving their sentence before they have those rights restored,Ž Lawson said.But Amendment 4 has drawn national support, with Florida one of a handful of states that have laws on the books critics say are remnants of post-Civil War Jim Crow policies designed to keep blacks from casting ballots.Vermont-based Ben & Jerrys has placed the Florida initiative among its top-tier 2018 election issues. The left-leaning dessert company will give away free ice cream at early voting sites throughout the state in advance of the Nov. 6 election, according to the Second Chances Campaign, an organization behind the amendment.R&B musician John Legend recently head-lined an event in Orlando to rally support for the amendment. MSNBCs Chris Hayes recently visited the state to call attention to the proposal. And HBO host John Oliver last month made an appeal to Flor-ida voters during a Last Week TonightŽ segment devoted to the amendment.The amendment also has a plethora of lesserknown advocates in Florida, including Purple Heart recipient Alan Rhy-elle. The Vietnam vet, who was shot through the chest in 1967 and was later diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, turned to mari-juana as an alternative to highly addictive and toxic medications prescribed to treat his pain and anxiety.After his daughter, Peaches, suffered traumatic injuries in a car accident a decade ago, Rhyelle began growing pot to provide what he considered a better alternative to the multiple prescription pain medications doctors had ordered for his bedridden daughter.But shortly before drying cannabis was ready for Peaches consumption, his daughter died.When the paramedics arrived at his house to take his daughter to the medical examiners office, they smelled marijuana and alerted the sheriffs office, Rhyelle said in a recent interview.As a result, he lost his right to vote.I love my country. Ill stand up and Ill fight if anybody was to invade our shores,Ž Rhyelle, a Sarasota County resi-dent, said.Rhyelle, 72, said he hasnt applied to have his rights restored because of the backlog ahead of him, but hes signed on to promote Amendment 4 with the hope of assisting others.I thought, well, hey, even if I cant get it, it will help them, and Ill have the satisfaction of knowing Ive done some-thing to help somebody,Ž he said.Forgiveness is another theme that resonates for backers of Amendment 4.Karen Leicht, who was convicted of conspiracy to commit insurance fraud and served more than two years in federal prison, said a debt, when it is paid, is paid.ŽWhy cant the state of Florida forgive us? When you have paid, and your family has paid dearly, shouldnt you be allowed to vote?Ž Leicht said.Ivey, meanwhile, is haunted by the image of that critical piece of paper, which he never put to use.I see my voters regis-tration card in my mind, over and over again,Ž he said. And now that its so close, I really want this.Ž VOTINGFrom Page A3The changes to the fee structure needed to happen this year, accord-ing to Oliver, who said Lake Countys current infrastructure funding was not sufficient to support the increased traffic brought in by recent growth.At the current rate, Oliver said, Lake County already has more conges-tion than its size warrants, and over time the problem will only get worse.The adjustments com-missioners can make, he said, can only bring traffic capacity in-line with sur-rounding counties.Olivers long-term plan recommends abandoning impact fees altogether in favor of mobility fees, which he says will elimi-nate strict districts and allow fee assessment to be planned more flexibly.Commissioners seemed to be on board with the long-term plan but opted not to make a decision on that goal until March 2019.Schneider suggested the consultant prepare two plans by then: one he recommends, and one he thinks the commission would be willing to take on.Commissioners told staff at the meeting they hope to see how the impact fee structure performs before deciding for a new system. FEESFrom Page A3The ministry says that during Alqasem's involve-ment with Students for Justice in Palestine, the club advocated a boycott against Sabra hummus, an Israeli-owned brand of chickpea dip.In her appeal, Alqasem has argued that she never actively participated in boycott campaigns, and promised the court that she would not promote them in the future."We're talking about someone who simply wants to study in Israel, who is not boycotting anything," said her lawyer, Yotam Ben-Hil-lel. "She's not even part of the student organization anymore."Alqasem is registered to study human rights at Israel's Hebrew University in Jerusalem. The univer-sity has thrown its support behind her, announcing Monday that it would join her appeal.She also received a boost from her former Hebrew professor at UF, who described her as an exceptional and curious student.

There was also a change in glass paneling near the front door.Another alteration was in accepting slightly lower quality products of kitchen equipment,Ž according to a memo to commissioners. Minner said that change will not affect the use of the kitchen.Cost overruns are noth-ing new in construction projects, but one of the jokers in the deck for the massive Venetian Gardens makeover is rising steel prices. President Donald Trumps tariff trade war with China could lead to a rise in prices by $500,000, Minner said.Not only is the city building a new community center at the park, but also docks and boat slips in front of a lakefront restaurant to be built by a private vendor.The Venetian Gardens project, including playground, splash pad, and improvements to Ski Beach, comes to $12 million.Bone originally wanted to renovate the existing community building and keep the 80-year-old swimming pool in the park.I was the only one who voted no,Ž he said.Now, in addition to building the $8 million community building, including the landscaping, paving and tearing out the old pool, the city is talking about building a $3 million pool in the Susan Street Recreation Complex.Like Bone, Commissioner Jay Hurley also wanted to keep the original roof design.My point is, this is what we wanted,Ž Hurley said. Visitors to the Tavares community building talk about how beautiful it is. What were doing here is first-class. We want to get everyone talking about us.The building will be around for 50 years, he said.Todd Drennan, an architect hired as a consultant on the MoteMorris project, agreed with Hurley that people expect public buildings to have a distinguished look.I think you will notice the difference,Ž he said.Were in a good position,Ž Hurley said, referring to the budget and the upcoming sale of 1,200 acres to The Villages. This is not going to kill us.ŽCommissioner John Christian, however, said he has other projects he wants to pursue, and Mayor Dan Robuck and Commissioner Elise Dennison voted with Christian to make the price cuts. By Jessica Gresko and Mark ShermanThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Brett Kavanaugh took the bench with his new Supreme Court colleagues for the first time Tuesday in a jovial atmosphere that was strikingly at odds with the tension and rancor surrounding his high-court confirmation.The new justice dived into his new job, asking a handful of questions in the first arguments of the day following a traditional welcome from Chief Justice John Roberts, who wished Kavanaugh a long and happy career in our common calling.ŽKavanaugh took his seat at the end of the bench to Roberts far left, a visible manifestation of a moment that Republi-cans have dreamed of for decades, with five solidly conservative justices on the court, and Democrats have dreaded.His path to confirmation was turbulent „ opposition to him intensified after Chris-tine Blasey Ford accused him of sexually assaulting her decades ago, when they were teenagers. Kavanaugh denied it.In court, Kavanaugh asked questions of both sides in arguments over increased prison sentences for repeat offenders. He jumped in with his first question after most of the other justices had spoken.Questions from Kava-naugh and Justice Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trumps two high-court picks, suggested they could vote against the Trump administration and side with a criminal defendant from Florida who is fighting an increase in his sentence from just over six years to possibly more than 15 years.As Gorsuch did in his first arguments last year, Kavanaugh focused heavily on the impor-tance of following earlier decisions of the court. Both men testified about their respect for Supreme Court precedent, though Gorsuch already has been in the majority to overrule four high-court rulings.Referring to a 2010 decision known as Curtis Johnson, Kavanaugh asked Justice Department lawyer Frederick Liu what the court should do if were trying to follow Curtis Johnson strictly?ŽAs Kavanaugh takes his place, the mood is jovial


A6 Wednesday, October 10, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comLake and neighboring Sumter and Marion counties are not included in this storms emergency declaration, but Carpenter said Lake health care facilities might end up taking in patients from sister facilities in north Florida.The kind of rain Lake might get would be typical of the afternoon summer thunderstorms, he said. Unfortunately, Michael is a reminder that were still in hur-ricane season,Ž he said.A fast and furious Hurricane Michael sped toward the Florida Panhandle on Tuesday with 120 mph winds and a potential storm surge of 12 feet, giving tens of thousands of people precious little time to get out or board up.Drawing energy from the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico with every passing hour, the storm was expected to blow ashore around midday Wednesday near Panama City Beach, along a lightly populated stretch of fishing villages and white-sand spring-break beaches.While Florence took five days between the time it turned into a hur-ricane and the moment it rolled into the Carolinas, Michael gave Florida what amounted to two days' notice. It developed into a hurricane on Monday, and by Tuesday, more than 140,000 people were under mandatory evac-uation orders."We don't know if it's going to wipe out our house or not," Jason McDonald, of Panama City, said as he and his wife drove north into Alabama with their two children, ages 5 and 7. "We want to get them out of the way."Coastal residents rushed to board up their homes and sandbag their properties against the hurricane, which was speeding northward at 12 mph.The Associated Press contributed to this report. MICHAELFrom Page A1Steamroller last week completed a move from a charming, 4,700-square-foot church buildingin Eustis to a 10,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art, two-story building on Baker Street in the heart of downtown Mount Dora.The building, which is owned by G3 Development, a Mount Dora-based real estate and development com-pany, was renovated to fit Steamrollers needs.Meyer said the atmosphere in the downtown area and the welcoming spirit of the people of G3 appealed to him and coowners Keith Lackey and Jalil Sadool.Its amazing because most places weve gone to have only looked at, 'What can you do for us,' which is fine, but G3 and the city of Mount Dora have focused more on 'What can we do for you,' and that just sort of sealed the deal for us,Ž Meyer said.Meyer said that mindset has really rubbed off on his employees too.You could see the morale in our employees go up immediately after moving here. They may have wanted to work here before, but they really want to work here now,Ž he said. G3 Development owner Gerry Guenther said after they purchased the building at 301 N. Baker Street for $1.45 million, Mount Dora city officials asked him to reach out to Steamroller.Guenther said they planned on making $300,000 in renovations to fit the companys needs but ended up spending about $500,000.Guenther said Mount Dora business owners have said they are pleased to have Steamroller as a neighbor to frequent their shops and restaurants on a daily basis, including Wave, a sushi restaurant, Wallace Fitness, a gym, and Synergy Salon and Spa, which is in the same building as Steamroller.Meyer said his employ-ees love the fact that they can walk wherever they need to for whatever amenity they can think of.Meyer said G3 even incorporated a common break room area and courtyard into the build-ing for all its tenants.We worked hard to create the atmosphere and functionality Steamroller needed,Ž Guenther said. But really thats our ulti-mate goal with every place we develop „ creating spaces and jobs for young people to come back to after getting their college degrees.ŽEven Mount Dora got into the spirit by awarding G3 a tax incentive that would save them about $30,000 in property taxes over a 3-year period. For Steamroller, the deal means a sweeter lease agreement.It didnt make or break the deal, but it helped,Ž Guenther said.Now moved in, Meyer said Steamroller, known for their animation work in video games like Fortnite, Dauntless and the last two Tomb Raiders, can pour all its time and energy into current productions like Deadwood, the Forgotten Curse,Ž which will be released next year, an unnamed short they are working to release within the same timeframe and projects with Universal Studios and other companies.Meyer said their new digs will also allow them to incorporate more training and mentoring programs for students interested in the animation industry and projects it is planning to partner with Mount Dora on.Meyer said the company hopes to hold an anima-tion event with big names in the industry before the city's arts festival in late January at Mount Doras Community Building.G3, meanwhile, hopes to grow its relationship with Steamroller by offering housing for its employees and hopes to lure other tech companies to Mount Dora.On Tuesday, the G3 team, which includes Gerry Guenther and his two sons, Jake and Austin, even hosted a Welcome to Mount DoraŽ reception at Norman Van Aken's 1921 for every Steamroller employee and their fami-lies and Mount Dora city officials.

A post in the Trump administration has proven to be a rickety stepping-stone to either lucrative private sector work or hopes for higher office, and the risk to those ambitions might only increase after the elections if Democrats make significant gains in Congress.Trump said Haley first discussed leaving with him six months ago. The senior official noted that their conversation coincided with the appointments of Mike Pompeo as sec-retary of state and John Bolton as national secu-rity adviser in an earlier upending of top foreign policy officials. Haley had expressed some frustration that her voice had been diminished as the two men became the aggressive new faces of Trumps international policy, the official said.

PAGE 7 | Wednesday, October 10, 2018 A7 ANOTHER OPINION OPINIONSteve Skaggs | Publisher Tom McNiff | Executive Editor Whitney Lehnecker | Digital Editor, Lifestyles Editor Tom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 Medicare for all is the newest Democratic Party talking point. Gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum has adopted the favorite line of democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders. But its wildly unrealistic and would do little to deal with the high costs of health care without rationing. The first reason that Medicare for All is unrealistic is that it would have to scrap the entire health insurance system in the country. The fact is that most Americans are satisfied with the health insurance they receive from their employers. They dont want to be transferred to some Canadian-style system. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, was designed to deal with those uninsured Americans who are not covered by employer health insurance, Medicare or Medicaid. Its a relatively small number of Americans but under the previous system, some uninsured Americans were threatened by bankruptcy with high health care bills. This is the segment that needs affordable health insurance. There are reasonable proposals in Congress to deal with the uninsured and make Obamacare work better. But they havent been able to gain wide support. At issue is the incredible complexity of U.S. health care. It forces physicians to spend too much time on billing. Yet Switzerland and Germany use third party providers like the U.S. employer-based system but with far less complexity. The United States actually has several different health insurance systems: € Employer-provided insurance, funded in part with federal tax incentives. € Medicare for those 65 and older. € Medicaid, which covers certain low-income people, in Florida but not single adults. € Military systems, including the Veterans Administration and TriCare for active military. € Individual policies in which people often dont receive the advantages of mass discounts and negotiation. A Medicare for All proposal was considered in Sanders home state of Vermont but dropped because it was too expensive. The flaws with Medicare for All were listed in an opinion column by Richard Kocur, assistant professor of business at Grove City College (Pennsylvania). The cost of Medicare for All has been estimated at $30 trillion over 10 years, which would require a doubling of federal taxes. Beyond the gigantic tax increase, proposals resume a drop in expenses. For instance, reducing provider fees would cause a drop in access as providers drop out. The real problem with the U.S. health care is that high prices are baked into the system. Cutting prices means a cut in someones profits. Here are some facts from The Wall Street Journal: However, as much as 40 percent of care could allow for shopping, such as joint replacements or nonemergency MRIs. So how are consumers supposed to compare price and quality? The average cost of a hospital MRI is more than double the cost at an imaging center, reports The New York Times. Yet patients are not shopping for medical care. What seems more practical is to give physicians the price and quality information and give them bonuses for recommending tests and procedures that save money. The Trump administration has protested high prescription drug prices and taken some action. One example is exploring the importation of prescription drugs, reports Kaiser Health News. This would be limited to cases in which one company makes a high-priced drug that is off its patent. There are many bad examples, such as a pill that once cost $13.50 and now costs $750. Its just a start toward reining in many outrageous examples of unaffordable drug prices. The real issue with health care in America is simple: high prices. Until they are reined in, no system will work, especially not Medicare for all. Florida Times-Union (Jacksonville)OUR OPINIONMedicare for all wont workThe head of the North Carolina Republican Party calls one of Brett Kavanaugh's accusers "a criminal" who "should go to prison." And we wonder why women are hesitant to report sexual assault? Dallas Woodhouse, the executive director of the North Carolina GOP, said of Julie Swetnick's claims: "These things not only did not happen, they are impossible. So she needs to be prosecuted..." How many women decide to remain in hiding when they hear comments like that? Republicans, from President Trump on down, have questioned why Kavanaugh's accusers stayed quiet about the Supreme Court nominee for so long. But with his tweets about Swetnick on Sunday, Woodhouse himself becomes the living embodiment of why a woman might keep her secret hell to herself. Karen Parker has seen it over and over. As the CEO of Safe Alliance in Charlotte, she and her organization help women who have suffered domestic abuse and sexual violence. Often they have remained silent for years. When a highprofile case hits the public eye, victims seeking counseling call Safe Alliance and tell of their decades-old trauma. So Woodhouse's comments are damaging, Parker said. "It's just one more thing in the victim's head: 'OK, someone else is not going to believe me,'" Parker told the editorial board Monday. "When you hear it over and over, you do start to think, 'what's the use in telling anybody? I might be setting myself up not to be believed, I might set myself up for them to attack me in some way.' You either deal with all those things or just stay quiet." This is not just about Woodhouse. North Carolina political observers are used to his polarizing bluster. This is about the environment Woodhouse contributes to, an environment that discourages victims of sexual assault from telling their stories, even in 2018. They see what happens to others who do. Woodhouse followed up his tweets by telling the News & Observer "we stand with sex assault victims 100 percent." He argues that his targeting is limited to Swetnick, whose allegations he regards as outlandish and who has been involved in many legal disputes over the years. Swetnick may or may not be telling the truth. But instead of labeling her a "criminal," Republicans and Democrats alike should want a full investigation of her claims and those of at least two other women before elevating Kavanaugh to one of the nation's most powerful positions. Parker says victimized women have at least three fears in reporting the crime: that they won't be believed; that they'll face some kind of retribution; and that they'll have to relive the trauma. Women have slowly won a more supportive environment over the years, and have gotten a boost from the #MeToo movement. The last thing victims of sexual violence need are people like Woodhouse driving them back into the shadows. From Tribune News Service.ANOTHER OPINIONIn North Carolina, the embodiment of why women stay silent By Steve Palumbi and Mary RobertsOur friends and peers are asking more and more about our retirement plans, probably because they are thinking about retirement themselves. And although we all may be thinking about it, we find ourselves reluctant to give up our career lifelines. But if our generation is wary, what are our kids thinking? Many of us have health care plans, pensions, savings, Social Security and Medicare. Our kids are likely to have none of that. When we were growing up, there were new highways being built, bridges erected, mass transit created and water treatment systems invented. Our kids have seen little in the way of public works improvement. Instead, their future is overshadowed with serious problems: low wage growth, climate change, the collapse of basic healthcare and a rollback of reproductive health services. The federal government's ability to address these problems is increasingly hogtied by national debt: $21 trillion at present, or about $1 million for every high school student in the country. Our kids live in a different society than our generation does, and it's a crueler and more precarious one. This makes us mad and sad in equal measure. And it means voters our age need to change how we do things at the voting booth. Younger generations were adamant in 2016 that Bernie Sanders was the beginning of an answer. They saw in him, if not a savior, the only national politician willing to acknowledge their predicament. We worked our way up through companies for decades. Not them. Jobs today are increasingly specialized, and career advancement is attained by quitting and moving to a new company. We got health insurance through our longterm employers. Now that employers have little loyalty to employees, our kids need healthcare that doesn't hinge on a job. How many of us got a college education and launched into life nearly debt-free? Not them. They will be saddled with student debt the magnitude of which was unheard of in our day. How many of us bought starter homes in new neighborhoods with good public schools? Not them. In the few cities with good tech jobs, even starter apartments are virtually out of reach. There are solutions to these problems. Nearly every advanced society in the world is doing a better job of finding them than we are. In America, clearly, fixes are not going to come from our senior political leaders, big companies or the clergy. Rather, solutions are bubbling up from a new crop of politicians who are willing to face the world our kids live in, because they themselves live in the same world. This diverse set talks of investing in healthcare for all, education for all, infrastructure for the future and jobs that value workers. The main reason we recognize the potential in these candidates is because our kids know about them, and tell us. Their solutions may not seem perfect, or perfectly practical, to our generation. But at least these hopefuls are grappling directly with the intractable problems our kids will need to solve. Some of these candidates are on the national radar. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in New York, who defeated Rep. Joseph Crowley in the Democratic race for the House. Beto O'Rourke, the 45-year-old congressman from El Paso who is closing in on Ted Cruz's Senate seat. But the few who have attracted headlines are not alone. A whole wave of younger, bolder, more diverse candidates is emerging. They are running for school board seats, county administrators, state representatives. With our help, this new wave could crest. In the next few weeks, we ought to listen to our kids. Ask them whom to vote for and why. Perhaps we won't agree with their choices, but we ought to believe in them enough to vote their way anyway. The middle of this century will be theirs to navigate. They need and deserve the power to begin forging a path through it. We can give them a boost. For the first time in our country's history, the next generation will be worse off than our own. Our kids are wise enough to see their crumbling future and inspired enough not to despair in the face of it. Why not prioritize their needs in the midterm election. Signs in our neighborhood read, "Drive like your kids live here." In that spirit, this November, vote like your kids live here. Because they do.

The pond is also at least a part-time home to numerous wood ducks and Canadian geese. And youre encouraged to feed the wildlife by a vending machine selling fish chow. A vine-covered arbor stretches across the front veranda, where comfortable swings and rocking chairs share the space with big wooden wine barrels, offering a silent invitation to sit and enjoy the shade. The arbor, according to owners Max and Rob Rittgers, is a replica of one in Californias Napa Valley „ an area famous for its wine production. Inside are the usual winery activities „ with some extras. For one thing, theres the massive stone fireplace. Its a real fireplace, too, and Max and Bob are justifiably proud of it, for they built it themselves, all of Oklahoma slate. It took three and a half years to build, and its built to sit around.Ž The bench-like step makes it a comfortable place for sitting and chatting on a cold winters day, and even on a warm summers day, theres an inclination to gather here and take advantage of the comfortable chairs around the fireplace for sitting and chatting and browsing the newspapers. Naturally, theres a counter where wines are offered for sampling. The Dakotah makes two nongrape wines. The Blueberry is a sweet dessert wine with a slightly tart finish, and the Blackberry has a flavor and smoothness that make it a grabit-before-its-gone item. The Dakotahs most popular wines are made from large muscadine grapes, which the owners are proud to point out are grown without pesticides. Carlos, made from the white grape of that name, has a rather fruity flavor. The dark noble grape yields a semi-sweet red wine that great with Italian food," and the blush, a mixture of noble and Carlos, is described as a perfect summer picnic wine.Ž The sweetest of Dakotahs wines is the cream sherry, with a nutty, pecan-like taste. If the blush is good for summer picnics, the cream sherry is one for celebrating special occasions, such as anniversaries or birthdays. The port, with hints of apricot in the flavor, is granddaughter Micheles choice for sipping while watching her favorite hockey team on television. Both the cream sherry and the port are fortified with brandy and aged in wooden barrels for three years. Another interesting wine is the Chardonnay, aged in stainless steel for three years. The result is described as a crisp, dry wine „ but thats just the beginning of the story. Im not normally partial to dry wines, but I love this one. If Id had a bottle of it when my mother-inlaw came to check out the new wifes cooking and housekeeping, she would have remembered me for elegant wine instead of for serving her most unfavorite vegetables. Of course, if youre under-age or simply disinclined to indulge, you can always restrict your sampling to the nonalcoholic juice made from the Carlos grapes. Surrounding the tasting area is a well-stocked souvenir and gift shop with an extensive offering that includes cork pullers, fancy stoppers, wine soaps, and, for the nutrition-conscious cook, seasoned grape seed oils which are valued for their cholesterollowering properties. Scattered among the gifts and souvenirs are mysterious pieces of antique farm equipment, plus other items that would be at home in a historical museum or in an earlier era: handmade quilts on the walls, an old grape press and oldfashioned wood-burning stoves. The stoves go back as far as the early 1920s, and one of them cost a whopping $4.25 when it was brand new. Mary Ryder is a food columnist for the Daily Commercial.

[FACEBOOK] Mary Ryder By Becky KrystalThe Washington PostMore than any other type of cooking, baking dishes out as much heartbreak as joy: Fallen cakes. Soupy pies. Cookies that crumble. If youve been burned by baking „ or simply burned your baked goods „ you may wonder whether its just you. It probably is. Just joking, of course „ but even if you are in fact doing something wrong, that doesnt mean you cant fix it. And who better to learn from than Rose Levy Beranbaum? Shes been writing authoritative, comprehensive baking cookbooks for almost 40 years. Her latest, though „ Roses Baking BasicsŽ „ takes special aim at beginning bakers, complete with step-bystep photos, concise and clear directions, and a wealth of baking pearlsŽ that share tips, hows and whys. Here is some big-picture advice from Beranbaum to help you become a better, more confident baker: € Follow the directions. Real talk: If you dont want to follow directions, its better to make savory dishes,Ž Beranbaum says. Baking is best for precise people,Ž or people who give up their idea of how a recipe should be made at least the first time they attempt it. Do you really need to whip those egg whites separately? Does the dough really have to be kneaded that long? The answer is probably yes. € Be wary of substitutions. I know it sounds like were being sticklers here, but baking is often so much about chemistry that ingredients arent necessarily interchangeable. If you are bound and determined to swap things in a recipe, The first time, make it the way its written,Ž Beranbaum suggests. Otherwise youll never know what youre supposed to be getting.Ž Flours and sugars are two main baking ingredients that can have a dramatic effect on your results. Changing flours, for example, can alter the structure and density of a baked good. Sugars differ in flavor, texture and how they interact with water, so using the wrong one can also mess up the bake. When youre contemplating substitutions, Beranbaum says, it helps to at least know the composition of the ingredients, such as the fat and moisture content. So, sour cream and regular full-fat yogurt? Proceed. Agave instead of honey? Go for it. Beranbaum also warns against thinking that fancy, higher-fat butter is always better. The higher fat and lower moisture can cause problems when a recipe hasnt been designed to take advantage of those characteristics.Tips to make you a better baker

PAGE 11 | Wednesday, October 10, 2018 B3Although our pumpkins are beautiful and unique, these large gourds dont make a great tasting pie. The church's pumpkins are great for decorating and carving, but dont carve them just yet because an open pumpkin will spoil quickly with our current weather. The seeds are also quite tasty when roasted and even though the flesh of the pumpkin is edible, it's virtually tasteless. Large pumpkins are grown for size and contain more water and less flavor. If you do decide to eat your pumpkin, make sure to you wash the skin well before you cut it open. Smaller pumpkins can be roasted in their entirety, once washed and the top is cut off. Removing the top of the pumpkin allows for steam to escape and easier access once gourd is cooked. After discouraging the woman from buying one of our large pumpkins for pie, I educated her on what kind of pumpkin to purchase. Did you know that most canned pumpkin is actually Hubbard squash and that Libbys canned pumpkin is actually Dickinson squash? These two are the most common and actually what we are accustomed to eating. You may find that pumpkins at patches are lighter in color and are best used in a savory dish, such as a mash or stew. The flesh of these pumpkins are stringy and cutting requires a large chefs knife. Pie pumpkins can be found local grocery stores and are labeled accordingly. Hubbard squash can sometimes be found at specialty food stores. However, I prefer to buy canned pumpkin instead of real one. I like to think of myself as a savvy cook, meaning that I dont meddle to much with perfection. I am referring to the pie recipe that can be found on the back of a can of Libbys pumpkin. Through the years, however, I have made a few tweaks here and there to the recipe. If you do decide to venture out and buy a pumpkin for pie, my suggestion is to roast it whole for about an hour then scoop out the flesh to make your pie filling. For those of us who dont believe in bringing sand to the beach, here is my version of Libbys pumpkin pie: Zes version of Libbys Pumpkin PieIngredients: cup granulated sugar 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon teaspoon salt teaspoon ground ginger teaspoon ground cloves1/8 teaspoon ground allspice 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 large eggs 1 15-ounce can Libby's 100 percent Pure Pumpkin (not pumpkin pie “ lling) 1 12-ounce can Nestle Carnation Evaporated Milk 1 unbaked 9-inch, deepdish pie shell or 2 regular crusts Directions: In a small bowl, mix sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger, allspice and cloves. Beat eggs and vanilla in large bowl. Stir pumpkin and sugar mixture into egg mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk. Place unbaked pie shells on cookie sheet, and pour pumpkin mixture into pie shell. If two crusts, divide mixture evenly. Bake on cookie sheet in preheated 425-degree oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 2 hours. Top with whipped cream before serving.Ze Carter is a food columnist for the Daily Commercial. Email her at zecarter12@ CARTERFrom Page B1

Well, look at him now.Not only did Wells make the team, hes seeing signifi-cant playing time as one of the Buffaloes starting outside linebackers. He totaled three tackles „ two solo and one assist „ on Saturday in 19th-ranked Colorados 28-21 win against Arizona State.In addition, Wells was in on two third-down stops and forced three quarterback hurries.The game was, arguably, Wells most-complete effort of his young college career.For the season, Wells has seen action in each of Colorados five games „ all wins „ and has nine tackles. He has been credited with quar-terback sack, six third-down stops, five quarterback pressures, one quarterback chasedown, one pass broken up.Wells play this season has shown Buffaloes fans why coaches from Boulder, Colorado, made the trek to Bushnell in the first place.THE NEXT LEVELWells starting for No. 19 ColoradoFormer South Sumter standout having an impact for Bu aloesFlorida running back Lamical Perine (22) and the Gators power through LSU defenders toward the end zone Saturday in Gainesville [BRAD MCCLENNY/GATEHOUSE MEDIA] By Robbie AndreuGatehouse MediaGAINESVILLE „ Their Summer of Savage is show-ing up on the field this fall for the Florida Gators. Its obvious.Theyre winning the fourth quarter, with the exception of one tie (Ken-tucky also scored six points in the fourth quarter), and in the last two games against Mississippi State and LSU the Gators have come from behind in the final 15 minutes to pull out victories.Its a sure sign that all the working and straining and grinding the players have done in Nick Savages offseason strength and conditioning program are getting results, further reinforcing the seemingly team-wide buy-in.(The work we put in under Savage) showed up a lot (in the win over LSU),Ž junior wide receiver Josh Hammond said. Its just guys not being tired after-ward and continuing to play.When those games get tight and it is back-andforth, we know that we have each others back and we are still ready to play football, even if it goes into overtime.

TV: ESPNBy Tom HaysThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ The father of a blue-chip college basketball recruit testified Tuesday that an assistant coach at the Uni-versity of Louisville gave him a secret payment of $1,300 as part of a deal to get the son to sign with the school.At a criminal trial about corruption in big-time basketball, Brian Bowen Sr. described meeting assistant Kenny Johnson two separate times in 2017 to try to collect cash in violation of school and NCAA rules.Bowen testified that the first time, Johnson was shockedŽ and flabber-gastedŽ when he told him that defendant Christian Dawkins had promised that the coach would help the father with paying rent. The next time, he said, Johnson handed over $1,300 „ reluctantly.He made it clear that this was a one-time deal for him,Ž Bowen said in federal court in Manhattan. He said Lou-isville didnt pay basketball players.ŽThere was no immediate response Tuesday to a mes-sage seeking comment from a lawyer for Johnson, who was never accused of a crime.The testimony about the recruitment of Brian Bowen Jr. came in a case that prompted Louisville to fire both Johnson and its legendary coach, Rick Pitino. Johnson is now an assistant at La Salle.Dawkins, former amateur coach Merl Code and former Adidas executive James Gatto, have pleaded not guilty to Players father: assistant gave cash By Mark LongAssociated PressJACKSONVILLE „ Blake Bortles was largely ineffec-tive despite a career-high 430 yards passing against Kansas City. His offensive line was the biggest problem.The Jacksonville Jaguars failed to give Bortles enough time or protection in a 30-14 loss at the Chiefs on Sunday. Bortles was sacked five times, fumbling once, and hurried way more often.According to Pro Football Focus, Jacksonvilles line allowed 24 total quarterback pressures „ seven more than any other NFL team in Week 5.We take an immense amount of pride in our work,Ž backup left tackle Josh Walker said Monday. Thats going to be the goal of our group this week: to be more determined to be better and do a better job in protecting Blake. Weve got to keep him clean. Thats our job and thats what were going to do.Were fine. Were not worried about things. Were going to fix things.ŽThe Jaguars (3-2) might have to make some roster changes to find help. Left tackle Josh Wells has a groin injury that could cause him to miss Sundays game at Dallas (2-3), and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is headed to injured reserve and will have core muscle surgery.Coach Doug Marrone said Wells is week to weekŽ and Seferian-Jenkins is expected to return later in the year.Running back Corey Grant (foot) also is done for the season, joining Leonard Fournette on the sideline.

charges they sought to use under-the-table payments of up to $100,000 from Adidas in exchange for commit-ments from top prospects to major programs seen as a path to the pros. Their lawyers havent disputed that payments were offered, but they argue that the schools never suffered any harm.Brian Bowen Sr. took the witness stand in fed-eral court in Manhattan as part of an agreement with the government that will spare him from prosecution. On Tuesday, he testified that he tried to keep quiet about the money schemeŽ that he knew broke the rules, even going as far as keeping his son in the dark about it.I didnt want him to get involved in something that was wrong. ... And I definitely didnt want my son to lose his eligibility,Ž he said.The former police offi-cer testified that when first confronted by the FBI, he lied to agents by denying he knew about the scheme. He said he later decided he had no choice but to cooperate.Once the scandal broke, Louisville withdrew Brian Bowens scholarship before he ever played a game.

PAGE 15 | Wednesday, October 10, 2018 C3these moments.ŽAfter the 27-19 win over the Tigers last Saturday, UF coach Dan Mullen talked about how the players in the game were like hanging onto a rope, straining and losing some ground, but then stopping the negative flow and eventually pulling the rope toward them.It sounds like tug-of-war.But what Mullen was talking about was a drill the Gators did throughout the summer under Savage using actual ropes. The players divide into teams and each team is given a rope for everyone to hang onto together while running the stadium steps.Each team is made up of a combination of linemen, linebackers and skill position players, so there is tendency for some to want to go faster than others. But its all about hanging on together, Mullen said.Just dont let go of the rope,Ž Mullen said. Some-times, its, I want to go faster, I want to go slower. But youre as good as your teammates are. And we are as good as we are as a team, not, hey, you see how fast I can run the stadium? Thats great, but you left your teammates behind so that does us no good. Its we are as good as our team is.ŽSavages offseason program is about getting physically stronger and mentally tougher. The players are always compet-ing against one another, so there are winners and losers in everything they do.The coaches say its all about straining physically, and mentally finding a way to overcome hardship and adversity.We do a bunch of differ-ent special deals,Ž Mullen said. I think those have a lot to do with our suc-cess because when you get into those games, you need something to look back on.You can look back on and say, Hey, I trained so hard and put myself through so much in that offseason training with so much intensity, I did it for this moment. Not when youre up big. I did it for when we are down in the fourth quarter and we have to find a way to make a play to win the game. Thats what our offsea-son program is all about. A lot of it is about mental toughness and how to over-come any type of adversity and take on any challenge that is put in front of you.ŽThe physical and mental aspects of Savages pro-gram came into play in the fourth quarter against the Tigers.In a physical dogfight the whole game, the Gators gave up a lightning-fast 80-yard touchdown drive early in the fourth quarter to fall behind 19-14. And at that point, the Gators had done little on offense in the second half. So, momen-tum was gone.But the Gators responded, answering the LSU score with a 75-yard TD drive to regain the lead. Over the rest of the game, the UF defense gave up only 14 total yards and secured the win with Brad Stewarts pick-six.The Gators were men-tally and physically strong when they had to be in the fourth quarter.When you get punched in the mouth, youve just got to keep on fighting,Ž quarterback Feleipe Franks said. Thats what our players did, and just strained through the fourth quarter, not giving up, not letting down.Thats one of the best things that couldve had happened to us in the off-season, becoming more mentally strong.ŽThe Summer of Savage is clearly having an impact in the fall.Our strength staff did an unbelievable job of preparing guys through January, February, even through spring ball all the way through the summer,Ž defensive coor-dinator Todd Grantham said. And guys have con-tinued to work, develop to the standard that we want. And were starting to have some success with it. Weve just got to con-tinue to prepare and work the way we need to to be on that same course.Ž GATORSFrom Page C1The Jaguars are planning to sign a running back and likely will do the same at left tackle.When you add and youre missing some key players, you have to play to the strengths of what they can do,Ž Marrone said. It is a challenge for us, but there are teams that go through those same challenges. Its going to be on us as coaches to do a good job of putting in the right plays, going to the right people and being able to go and execute it.ŽThe O-line was Jacksonvilles weak link last year, failing to create holes for Fournette in the second half of the season.The Jags thought signing All-Pro left guard Andrew Norwell to a five-year, $66.5 million contract in free agency would solidify the front. But Norwell has been aver-age, at best, while playing alongside three different left tackles: Cam Robinson, Wells and Walker. Robin-son is out for the season with a knee injury.We need to trust in each other,Ž Wells said. The expectation level is still going to remain high. We need to put our head down and go back to work.ŽThe Jaguars essentially abandoned the running game after falling behind 20-0 late in the second quarter. That put a lot of pressure on Bortles and even more stress on the line, which really struggled against speedy linebacker Dee Ford.Bortles completed 33 of 61 passes, with one touchdown and four interceptions.Everyone is in a tough situation,Ž Marrone said. You turn around the next day (and) you want to run the football. Looking back, maybe we started throwing it a little too early. Maybe we just were pressing too much early. ... Youre always going to look at that and youre not going to sit here and say that, Hey, were a team that wants to throw the ball 60-something times.Ž JAGUARSFrom Page C1As a senior at South Sumter, Wells helped the Raiders reach the Class 4A state semifinals. He was the fury behind one of the toughest defenses in the state, regardless of classification.His sta tline as a senior was eye-popping ƒ 96 tackles, two fumble recov-eries, two interceptions, 18 tackles for loss, seven quarterback sacks and five passes broken up. Wells also averaged double-digits in rebounds for the Raiders basketball team, and ran the 100-meters along with throwing the shot put and discus for the track team.In addition to his athletic achievements, Wells was valedictorian and graduated with a 4.6 weighted grade point average.Wells and the Buffaloes will travel to Los Angeles on Saturday to play South-ern California. The game will be televised on FS-1 at 10:30 p.m. Jasmine Kimpel, Lake-Sumter State CollegeJasmine Kimpel will likely look back at her volleyball career at Lake-Sumter State College with an approving smile. The 5-foot-10 right-side hitter is backing up her solid freshman season last year with a solid sophomore campaign.Kimpel has played in 19 of the Lakehawks first 20 matches this season and has produced 74 kills with 26 digs. In 23 matches as a freshman, Kimpel had 84 kills, 40 digs and had 32 total blocks.Her play this season is one of the reasons the Lake-hawks have improved from 6-17 in 2017 to 10-10 in 2018 with four matches left on the schedule.The Tavares graduate gave LSSC coach Amanda Phelps an indication of her potential in her senior season with the Bulldogs.Kimpel led Tavares to a 17-12 record in her senior season with 202 kills and 88 service points, including 53 service aces. She also led Tavares with 41 solo blocks and 171 digs.Next up for the Lakehawks is a home match against South Florida State College at 6 p.m. today at the Everett Kelly Convocation Center. Justin Rickerson, Oglethorpe UniversityThe leap from high school to college is often one that takes time. And that applies to com-peting at the next level, as well.When he starred for the Eustis High School boys golf team, Justin Rickerson was one of the best in Lake and Sumter counties, as well as the state. He played in mul-tiple state championships with the Panthers, finishing ninth as a sophomore in the 2015 Class 2A finals at Mission Inn Resort and Club.But Rickerson is now a freshman at Oglethorpe University in Atlanta and hes going through the same learning process he under-went as a junior golfer.His most recent effort with the Stormy Petrels, an NCAA Division III program, was at the Royal Lakes Fall Invitational on Oct. 1 and 2 at Royal Lakes Golf and Country Club in Flowery Branch, Georgia. Rickerson helped Oglethorpe to a 13th-place finish in the 36-hole event.The freshman shot an opening-round 84, which included two birdies along with two double bogeys and two triple bogeys. Rickerson settled down for the second round and shot a 5-over par 77 and finished tied for 87th place among individuals.Rickerson made his college debut on Sept. 9 at the Southern Athletic Association Mens Preview at Greystone Country Club in Dickson, Tennessee.As a team, Oglethorpe make up six shots over the final 18 holes to finish tied with Berry College for top team honors. Rickerson competed on the Stormy Petrels secondary team, which did not figure into the final team score; however, he shot an opening round 77 and closed with a 1-over par 73 over his final 18 holes to finish in a tie for 34th place among individuals.Oglethorpe is scheduled to play Sunday in the Golfweek Division III Fall Invitational on the Raven Golf Club at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort in Miramar Beach.

DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 27 years and have three wonderful kids. The youngest is 16. I recently found out I may have another son from a relationship prior to my marriage. The woman never notied me or asked for child support. I found out through someone else a couple of months ago and, thanks to social media, was able to nd him and look at his picture. He looks exactly like I did 25 years ago. The problem is, when I mentioned it to my wife, she did not want to discuss the possibility. She acts like nothing happened and asked me not to bring it up again. What would you recommend in a situation like this? Should I say nothing and let it be, or risk ruining my marriage? -VACILLATING IN VIRGINIA DEAR VACILLATING: I nd it interesting that someone would know you possibly had another son all this time and didn't say anything sooner. If it's true, the young man might like to know, if only so he can have a complete familial medical history. I don't see how establishing the truth could "ruin" your marriage unless your wife is self-centered and immature. However, rather than suddenly appear out of nowhere with the news, it might be better to reach out to the woman you had the relationship with, tell her what the friend told you and ask her if it's true. If she concealed the information from her son or from the man who raised him, possibly thinking the boy was his, it could be traumatic for everyone concerned. So, if you do decide to move forward on this, explain that if it's true, you think it might be in her son's best interests to know. DEAR ABBY: My daughter, a widow, started going out with men she meets on dating websites last year. She has three children; the youngest is 10. She has a full-time job and doesn't smoke, drink or use drugs. She goes out ve to seven times a week. I have all the responsibility for the children's care, school, church, laundry, cooking, etc. I'm feeling very overburdened. While I don't mind doing all these things, I feel taken advantage of. Am I wrong or is it now normal for a mother to go out that much? When she's home, she's constantly checking her texts and social media. Please advise. -USED IN TEXAS DEAR USED: You are a caring, loving, responsible mother and grandmother. However, you are also an enabler. You are allowing yourself to be used. Your daughter appears to be immature and centered entirely on herself. It is NOT "normal" for a mother to be out socializing as often as your daughter is. To ignore her children in favor of social media to the extent that you described is neglectful. You are entitled to a life of your own, so stop doing your daughter's job as much as you have been and start doing some things for yourself.

YESTERDAYS SOLUTION BRIDGE CRYPTOQUOTE HOROSCOPES TODAY IN HISTORY DIVERSIONS Man learns he may have a son he never knew about HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR WEDNESDAY, OCT. 10, 2018:This year you tend to get past problems with ease. You will learn to keep your opinions to yourself more often than not. How you present yourself might not be as clear as others might like. You often hide your more assertive side. If you are single, you might attract someone who is unavailable. Determine what kind of relationship you want, and then proceed carefully. If you are attached, your tendency to act secretively often frustrates your partner. Learn to be more open with each other. SCORPIO intrigues you. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Situations provide challenges that you might choose not to meet. Feel free to make that choice. Pressure to perform to another persons expectations could increase your tension. Walk away from negative situations and people. Do something just for you. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Others have an odd way of expressing how much they value you. Your unanticipated responses often shock people. A friend or loved one might be stunned by your behavior. Embrace your fun-loving side. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Your smile greets others and helps make a difcult situation a lot easier. A partner or dear friend could be withdrawn, but will make an attempt to warm up the atmosphere between you. Do more listening than speaking, and the results will be better. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Your mischievous nature emerges, allowing others to loosen up. You lighten the moment and others moods just by being you. Your gentle efforts put a smile on a loved ones face. This person appreciates your efforts more than you are aware. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Fortunately, you deal well with performance anxiety and pressure. You assume the lead, whereas others cannot. Your personality encourages you not to feel challenged. Do not make assumptions; instead, assess what is fact and what is ction. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) You tend to say exactly what is on your mind. You could shock an older person or someone you care about. You can be sure that there is a veil of confusion around you and a key person in your life. Take a step back for now, and make no judgments. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) You might want to pat yourself on the back, as you seem to be able to rein in your spending. It might be happening slower than you want, but you are getting there. A friend demands to have his or her way. Feel free to say no and walk away. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You experience a surge of energy, but choose to say little about what you are thinking. You could change your mind in the next day or so. You gain more information, and through observation will see the situation differently. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) If you choose to lie low, others will understand. You might need some private time to reect on a recent development. You do not need to share everything with everyone. Do absolutely what you desire, but dont feel as if you must share what you are up to. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22JAN. 19) Zero in on your objectives, knowing full well that you might want to wait until a meeting to start fullling them. A discussion with friends presents a much different perspective. Let others know where you are coming from. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) You could cause a problem when dealing with a boss or higher-up. You need to reach out to someone who could affect your life. This person has clout. You will note that passions run high at the present moment. Try to avoid an argument at all costs. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Be willing to detach. Walk in someone elses shoes in order to understand him or her better. Once you are enlightened, you will be more compassionate. You will be able to interact with others in a more efcient way. | Wednesday, October 10, 2018 C5 TODAY IS WEDNESDAY, OCT. 10, the 283rd day of 2018. There are 82 days left in the year.

PAGE 19 | Wednesday, October 10, 2018 C7 BUSINESS "I'm riding high and who can deny. That whatever goes up must fall." „ Fred Astaire, "I'm Building Up to An Awful Letdown"Investors with a sense of history are carefully observing a trend that last reared its head about 18 years ago and resulted in serious consequences for many. The last time cyclicallyadjusted valuations of companies were as high as they are now was just before the dot-com bubble in 2000. As we all remember, that bubble was driven by tech companies that went public in advance of achieving actual profitability. In other words, people were hungry to invest in companies that appeared to have limitless potential but had yet to prove that they could become profitable enterprises. The investment was actually in a company's possible future, not in its proven performance. I remember so well that period of time in the late 90s, when any investor could and often did, for a time, make money by throwing a dart at exciting new tech stocks. The heavy thud of that tech bubble crashing to the ground in 2000 can still be heard by investors with a big memory. In that year, around 400 Russell 3000 companies were trading at 10-times revenues or more. To put this in perspective, if a company earns one-third of what it sells, it would take an investor who pays 10-times revenue three decades to earn his money back. Now, nearly 340 Russell 3000 companies are trading at 10-times revenues or above. We're not back to 2000 levels, but we're getting close. In addition, almost 83 percent of the companies going public today lost money in their last fiscal year. So investors are currently plowing money into businesses which may have cash flow, but have not proven to be profitable or sustainable in the long term. According to University of Florida IPO expert David Ritter, this percentage of nonprofitable IPO's is a record. Ritter was recently quoted in a Wall Street Journal article, stating that They (analysts) see similarities with the dot-com bubble of nearly two decades ago that left many investors with enormous losses. The prior high-water mark for money-losing companies going public was 2000, when 81 percent of stock-market debutantes were unprofitable." Stock prices of these tech companies often rose significantly during the dot-com boom after the Initial Public Offering and represented an opportunity for investors to garner what seemed like an easy dollar. Call it IPO fever. Unfortunately, it's like a game of musical chairs: You don't want to be the investor standing alone without a place to sit when the market determines that these stock valuations are no longer accurate and the bubble bursts.

It slashed its outlook for the 19 countries that use the euro currency and for Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa.The report comes on the eve of the Oct. 12-14 meetings in Bali, Indo-nesia, of the IMF and its sister lending organiza-tion, the World Bank. BERLINGerman industry urges breakthrough at Brexit talksGermans main indus-try association says political leaders need to make a major breakthrough at upcoming negotiations on ending Britains membership in the European Union.The Federation of German Industries, known as BDI, cautioned Tuesday that a so-called hard Brexit with Britain leaving the bloc with no trade deal would be a disasterŽ for businesses on both sides of the English Channel.BDI head Joachim Lang says Europe needs to prevent a worst-case Brexit scenarioŽ and be prepared to compromise at the upcoming talks. At the same time, the pre-requisite is that London finally grasps reality.Ž The Associated PressBy Anick Jesdanun and Michael LiedtkeThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Googles new Pixel phones mirror an indus-try trend toward lusher, bigger screens and add twists on the camera for better pictures.The third generation of Pixel phones unveiled Tuesday at an event in New York features screens that span from one edge to another. Its the first time Google has embraced the format, which Samsung has had for a few years and Apple adopted last year.But Google is undercutting Apple on price. The Pixel 3 will be available Oct. 18 start-ing at $799 „ $200 below the least expensive iPhone XS. A larger version, the Pixel 3 XL, costs $100 more.Google is also hiring photographer Annie Leibovitz to take pictures with the new Pixel in an effort to persuade consumers that its camera is superior.The camera, for instance, promises better low-light and close-up shots by using arti-ficial-intelligence software to combine multiple shots taken in succession. It will also warn you if someone blinked or if the shot is otherwise poor. The camera automatically takes about three seconds of shots, at lower resolu-tion, and will recommend an alternative. The Pixel joins LGs V40 in sporting a second front lens to fit more people into selfies. But it lacks a zoom lens on either side, something available on some iPhones and Samsung phones. Instead, Google uses software to mimic that effect.Beyond the camera, Google is using artificial intelligence to help screen calls. Just tap on a button for Googles voice assistant to ask the caller about the purpose of the call. You see a transcript of the response on the screen. You can choose to pick up or ignore the call. Callers are warned that they are talking to a robot and that a transcript would be made.Although the Pixels have barely made a dent in the market since their debut two years ago, Google uses them to highlight what it considers to be the best features of its Android operating system. A previously announced feature in which software will call businesses to make appointments and restau-rant reservations for you will debut on the Pixel first, for instance „ initially in New York, Atlanta, Phoenix, Arizona, and the San Francisco Bay Area. IDC analyst Ramon Llamas said the Pixel 3 doesnt break new ground on hardware, but software is a different story. Its mostly about convenience here.ŽAs usual, the Pixel phones focus heavily on Googles search engine, maps, digital assistant and YouTube video service.Google has sold an esti-mated 7 million Pixels over the past two years, almost imper-ceptible next to the 3.6 billion phones shipped during that time, according to IDC. Apple alone sold 388 million iPhones during the same period.Tuesdays announcements come a day after Google disclosed a flaw that could have exposed personal infor-mation of up to 500,000 users of its Plus social network. Google declined to address that further Tuesday, though executives emphasized pri-vacy and security throughout the event in New York.For instance, the cameras features for better shots will take advantage of software on the device itself, so that nothing gets sent to Googles servers „ unless you enable a backup feature with Google Photos. The Pixel 3 will have a new chip, called Titan, to store keys to the most sensi-tive information, including those needed to unlock the phone and descramble stored data. Many other phones already have similar hardware for security.Google brings camera twists, bigger screens to its latest Pixel phonesNew Google Pixel 3 smartphones are displayed Tuesday in New York. Google introduced two new smartphones in its relentless push to increase the usage of its digital services and promote its Android software that already powers most of the mobile devices in the world.
