[AP PHOTO/GERALD HERBERT] By Jay Reeves and Brendan FarringtonThe Associated PressPANAMA CITY „ Super-charged by abnormally warm waters in the Gulf of Mexico, Hurricane Michael slammed into the Florida Panhandle with terrifying winds of 155 mph Wednesday, splintering homes and submerging neigh-borhoods. It was the most powerful hurricane to hit the continental U.S. in nearly 50 years.Its winds shrieking, the Cat-egory 4 storm crashed ashore in the early afternoon near Mexico Beach, a tourist town about midway along the Pan-handle, a lightly populated, 200-mile stretch of whitesand beach resorts, fishing towns and military bases.Michael battered the shoreline with sideways rain, powerful gusts and crashing waves, swamping streets and docks, flattening trees, stripping away leaves, shred-ding awnings and peeling away shingles. It also set off transformer explosions and knocked out power to more than 190,000 homes and businesses.We are catching some hell,Ž said Timothy Thomas, who rode out the storm with his wife in their second-floor apartment in Panama City Beach.With the hurricane still pounding the state hours after it came ashore, and conditions too dangerous in places for search-and-rescue teams to go out, there were no immediate reports of any deaths or serious injuries.Michael was a meteorological brute that sprang quickly from a weekend trop-ical depression, going from a Category 2 on Tuesday to a Category 4 by the time it came ashore. It was the most pow-erful hurricane on record to hit the Panhandle.Ive had to take antacids Im so sick to my stomach today because of this impend-ing catastrophe,Ž National Hurricane Center scientist Eric Blake tweeted as the storm „ drawing energy from the unusually warm, 84-degree Gulf waters „ became more menacing.More than 375,000 people up and down the Gulf Coast were urged to evacuate as Michael closed in. But the fast-moving, fast-strengthening storm didnt give people much time to prepare, and emergency authorities lamented that many ignored the warn-ings and seemed to think they could ride it out.While it might be their con-stitutional right to be an idiot, its not their right to endanger everyone else!Ž Walton County Sheriff Michael Adkinson tweeted.Diane Farris, 57, and her son walked to a high schoolturned-shelter near their home in Panama City to find about 1,100 people crammed into a space meant for about half as many.

Its punishable by up to four years in prison.Police charged Hussain with a single count involving all 20 victims. He was arrested Wednesday in a traffic stop on a highway near Albany.Hussain has had a brush with law enforcement before. State police accused him and his brother of claiming each others names after a 2014 traffic stop, which happened while the brother was driving without a valid license.Limo operator charged in crash that killed 20By Ayse Wieting, Suzan Fraser and Jon GambrellThe Associated PressISTANBUL „ Two Gulf-stream jets carrying 15 Saudis landed at Istanbuls Ataturk Airport before dawn on the day last week that journalist Jamal Khashoggi entered the Saudi Consulate and vanished. The men checked into hotels and left Turkey later that night.Turkish media, which released surveillance camera video of the men on Wednes-day, said they were members of an elite Saudi assassination squad,Ž sent to kill Khashoggi, a Saudi critic.Saudi Arabia remained silent at the accusation as the images were seen around the world, raising pressure on the kingdom to explain what hap-pened to the writer, a critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.Adding to the macabre mystery, a Turkish official told The Associated Press that one member of the team was an autopsy expert.ŽSaudi Arabia has dismissed allegations it played a role in Khashoggis disappearance as baseless,Ž but it has offered no evidence to support its contention he left the con-sulate unharmed last week and vanished into Istanbul while his fiance, Hatice Cengiz, waited outside.The video, shown on the state-run broadcaster TRT and others, did not offer defin-itive proof about Khashoggis fate. Turkish officials have said that they fear the team killed him.U.S. National security adviser John Bolton, Secre-tary of State Mike Pompeo and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner have spoken to the crown prince about the 59-year-old Washington Post contributor, the White House announced.President Donald Trump said the U.S. is demandingŽ answers from its close ally, but he did not disclose any details.Its a very serious situation for us and this White House,Ž Trump told report-ers in the Oval Office. We do not like seeing whats going on. Now, as you know, theyre saying We had nothing to do with it. But so far everyones saying they had nothing to do with it.ŽTrump added: Nobody knows what happened yet. We dont know what hap-pened yet.ŽThe Turkish security camera video was reminiscent of the surveillance video sleuthing done by officials investigating the assassination of a Hamas operative in Dubai in 2010 or the slaying of North Korean leader Kim Jong Uns half brother in Malaysia in 2017.The silent video showed one of two private Gulfstream jets that Turkish media said carried the Saudi group, who flew in and out of Istanbul on Oct. 2.The Sabah newspaper, which is close to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo-gan, published images of what it referred to as the assassi-nation squad,Ž apparently taken at passport control at the airport. The state-run Anadola news agency published the names and birth dates of all 15 Saudis.The footage shows some of the Saudis leaving a hotel and Khashoggi entering the consulate, walking past a black Mercedes van with diplomatic plates parked adjacent to the entrance. An hour and 54 min-utes later, according to the time stamp, a black Mercedes van drives about 1.2 miles to the consuls home, where it was parked in a garage.The footage all seemed to come from surveillance cameras, which would have been located throughout the neighborhood housing the Saudi Consulate and other diplomatic missions. No foot-age has emerged of Khashoggi leaving the consulate.Two Turkish officials, speaking on condition of ano-nymity to the AP because the investigation into Khashoggis disappearance was still ongoing, confirmed the authenticity of the images in the Turkish media. One of the officials describes a member of the Saudi team as an autopsy expertŽ amid earlier allega-tions that Khashoggi had been killed and dismembered.The Hurriyet newspaper and other media alleged that the Saudi Consulates 28 local staff were given the day off Oct. 2 because a diplomats meetingŽ would be held there on that day. The reports did not cite a source and there was no official confirmation. Turkeys private NTV news channel identified one of the 15 Saudis who arrived as the head of a Saudi forensic sci-ence agency. It alleged that he may have been responsible for cleaning up any incriminating evidence. The station did not cite a source for its report.Khashoggi had written a series of columns for the Post that were critical of Saudi Arabias assertive Prince Mohammed, who has led a widely publicized drive to reform the conservative Sunni monarchy but has also presided over the arrests of activists and businessmen.Erdogan has not accused Saudi Arabia of being responsible for Khashoggis disappearance but has said that if the Saudis have video footage of him leaving the consulate, they should release it. Saudi Arabia is a major investor in Turkey, despite Ankaras support for the Gulf nation of Qatar, which is under a blockade led by Saudi Arabia and three other Arab nations.Video shows team of alleged Saudi assassinsThis image taken from a surveillance camera shows a still image of people inside Ataturk International Airport, Istanbul, Turkey, on Oct. 2. The text on the screen from a source in Turkish reads: nine people enter from airports E Gate on Oct. 2, 2018 around 03:37.Ž A Turkish television station has aired surveillance video of missing writer Jamal Khashoggi walking into the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul and a black van leaving later for the consuls home. The footage aired Wednesday begins by showing the arrival of one of two private jets, then two cars can be seen taking the men to Gate E, where eight of them are seen on camera passing through passport control. [TRT WORLD VIA AP] By Kim Tong-HyungThe Associated PressSEOUL, South Korea „ South Korea is considering lifting some of its unilateral sanctions against North Korea to create more momentum for diplomacy aimed at improving relations and defusing the nuclear crisis, the Souths foreign minister said Wednesday.During a parliamentary audit of her ministry, Kang Kyung-wha said the govern-ment is reviewing whether to lift sanctions South Korea imposed on the North in 2010 following a deadly attack on a warship that killed 45 South Korean sailors.South Korea then effectively shut down all cross-border economic cooperation except for a jointly run factory park in the North Korean border town of Kaesong, which was shuttered in February 2016 after a North Korean nuclear test and long-range rocket launch. The so-called May 24 measuresŽ of 2010 also banned North Korea from using shipping lanes in South Korean territory.South Korean President Moon Jae-in has mostly stayed firm on sanctions despite actively engaging with North Korea and floating the possibility of huge investments and joint economic projects in return for the Norths relinquish-ment of its nuclear weapons.A move by South Korea to lift its unilateral sanctions would have little immediate effect since U.S.-led international sanctions remain in place. But its clear Seoul is preparing to restart joint economic projects if the larger nuclear negotiations between the United States and North Korea begin yielding results.Many parts of the May 24 measures now duplicate with the United Nations sanctions (against North Korea),Ž Kang said. As negotiations con-tinue to improve ties between the South and North and achieve denuclearization, theres a need to flexibly review (lifting the measures) as long as it doesnt damage the larger framework of sanc-tions against the North.ŽMoon has described inter-Korean engagement as crucial to resolving the nuclear standoff. A large number of South Korean business leaders accompanied Moon last month to Pyongyang, North Koreas capital, where he and leader Kim Jong Un agreed to nor-malize operations at the Kaesong factory park and resume joint tours to North Korea when possible, voicing optimism the international sanctions could end and allow such projects.S. Korea may lift sanctions on N. Korea Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi speaks during a press conference in 2015 in Manama, Bahrain. [AP PHOTO/HASAN JAMALI, FILE]

I dont mind going back to jail.ŽDeputies found Ortiz sit-ting on the toilet at his home. When deputies inquired about the pistol, Ortiz reportedly reached for it on a shelf and the officers overpowered him and brought him outside. They determined that the gun was a toy.Ortiz was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He is also wanted on a warrant out of New Jersey, the report states.EUSTISMan arrested for chucking rocks at passing cars A man who was apparently upset about discourteous drivers decided to extract a little revenge by hurling dirt and rocks at passing cars Tuesday night.According to an arrest report, several motorists called authorities to report that a shirtless man was standing on the side of County Road 44A near County Road 437 east of Eustis hurling rocks and dirt at cars. Several vehicles sustained damage.Deputies arrived and quickly arrested John Earl Gregory, 29, of Sorrento, and charged him with throwing deadly missiles into vehicles.On the way to jail, he report-edly told a deputy that he is tired of people not sharing the roadway so he must do what he has to do,Ž the report states.EUSTISMan arrested for fake bomb threatA Eustis man apparently didnt know that police can trace prank calls made to 911 from cellphones. He learned the hard way.Michael Sean Howes, 59, reportedly called 911 Tuesday morning to report that he heard there was going to be a bomb at Save-a-Lot, Aldi and Big Lots in Eustis.Ž He didnt identify himself and then hung up.Dispatchers had T-Mobile ping the phone and determined it was located at an address on South Bay Street and belonged to Michael Howes. Deputies found him and questioned him about the call, but he denied making it. They then had dispatchers call the number that had phoned in the bomb threat, and the phone in Howes pocket rang. He continued to deny he made the call, so they played a recording of the call for him.The caller had very distinct speech,Ž like Howes, the deputy noted in his report.Howes was charged with making a false report con-cerning planting an explosive device.By Frank Stanfield frankstanfield @dailycommercial.comTAVARES … A Lake County jury has awarded a woman $2.3 million for car accident injuries going back to 2007.It is a significant judgment for a local jury, said the womans attorney and longtime court officials.It was unusual, too, because the lawsuit, first filed in 2010, was amended to include a second car crash that occurred in 2014.On top of that, the plaintiff had to sue her own insurance carrier.Richard Taylor Jr. was driving an uninsured 1991 Chevy in 2007 when he crashed into Jessica Browers 2002 Hyundai at State Road 50, the lawsuit states.Brower, who was living with her grandmother, was covered by a State Farm policy issued to her grand-mother. The policy included protection against an unin-sured motorist.Florida is only one of two states that do not require drivers to carry any bodily injury insurance,Ž said Todd Copeland, the Orlando attorney who represented Brower. Florida is behind the times.ŽTaylor did not respond to court inquiries, and he had no assets, Copeland said.The accident caused damage to a disc in her back. A doctor was able to do endoscopic surgery by filing off part of the protrud-ing disc.In 2014, Browers back was reinjured in another accident. This time, she had to have spinal fusion surgery, includ-ing having screws and other hardware installed.That led to two other sur-geries, including procedures to remove screws.Shes a thin, young woman, very petite,Ž Copeland said.

Herbert Scott Smith of Eustis was appointed to the committee on the recommendation of Commissioner Wendy Breeden, who currently serves as the commission liaison to the Childrens Services Council.Smith previously served two terms on the Sales Surtax Advisory Committee and applied for that alongside the council position.He formerly served in the U.S. Air Force in Germany and has held a handful of other government positions, such as the Lake County School Districts director of finance.He also works with his local Kiwanis club on their annual Terrific KidsŽ awards, which he credited with bringing a great deal of positivity to childrens lives.Smith said he was excited for the new opportunity to help children from his council position.I feel honored. The children are our future,Ž he said.Breeden recommended he fill the vacancy on the Childrens Services Council because of his years of involvement in the county.He not only worked under the commission on the previous advisory committee, but Breeden remembered him from her Leadership Lake County class.Having seen him in action, and knowing his work history, she said she felt confident he would do well on the council.The other two could be as effective,Ž Breeden said. I just know that he will be.The Childrens Services Councils job is to offer guidance to the County Commission on children and family matters, and also to fund intervention and prevention programs to keep kids from falling through the cracks of social services.It has representatives from the School Board as well as the Department of Children and Families.Its next meeting, when Smith will officially take his seat, is Oct. 17 at the Lake County Agricultural Center.Commission elects retired colonel to Childrens Council By Mike SchneiderAssociated PressSANFORD „ Former neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman will plead no contest to resolve a misdemeanor charge accusing him of stalking a private investigator working for a documentary filmmaker, Zimmermans attorney said in court Wednesday.

It had a minimum central pressure of 919 millibars, one of the lowest readings ever of a hurricane making landfall.It ranks ninth among the 10 most intense hur-ricanes ever to strike land in the Atlantic basin. The ranking is based on the low central pressure in milli-bars at landfall. The record was the Labor Day Hurri-cane of 1935, which had a reading of 892 millibars.Michael was 1 mph shy of a Category 5 hurri-cane, the highest level on the Saffir-Simpson wind speed scale.To put that in perspec-tive, only three Category 5 hurricanes have ever struck the United States:€ The Labor Day Hurri-cane of 1935, with 185 wind, and minimum central pres-sure of 892 millibars;€ Camille, 175 mph, 900 millibars; and € Andrew, 175 mph, 922 millibars.Andrew was originally considered a Category 4 hurricane, packing 155 mph wind. But after a decade of investigation, the National Hurricane Center raised its designation to a Category 5.Michael, which had a lower pressure than Andrew, will go down as the most intense October storm ever to make landfall in the United States and the strongest hurricane ever to hit the Florida Panhandle.The outer eye officially hit Mexico Beach, midway between Panama City and Apalachicola, at 1:30 p.m, according to the National Hurricane Center.Michaels place in historyPowerful Michael ranks among most intense Atlantic hurricanesThis Aug. 25, 1992 “ le photo shows the water tower, a landmark in Florida City, still standing over the ruins of the Florida coastal community that was hit by the force of Hurricane Andrew.

A4 Thursday, October 11, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comBy Isabel DebreThe Associated PressJERUSALEM „ Israel on Wednesday defended its handling of the case of an American graduate student held in detention at the countrys interna-tional airport for the past week over allegations that she supports a boy-cott against the Jewish state.Lara Alqasem, a 22-year-old American citizen with Palestinian grandparents, landed at Ben-Gurion Airport last week with a valid student visa and was registered to study human rights at Israels Hebrew Univer-sity in Jerusalem. But she was barred from entering the country and ordered deported, based on sus-picions that she supports the Palestinian-led boy-cott movement.Alqasem, from the Fort Lauderdale suburb of Southwest Ranches, is a former president of the University of Florida chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine. The group is a branch of the BDS movement, whose name comes from its calls for boycotts, divestment and sanc-tions against Israel.BDS supporters say that in urging businesses, artists and universities to sever ties with Israel, they are using nonviolent means to resist unjust policies toward Palestinians. Israel says the movement masks its motives to delegitimize or destroy the Jewish state.An Israeli court has ordered that she remain in custody while she appeals, although Israel says she can leave the country. The weeklong deten-tion is the longest anyone has been held in a boycott-related case. Her case is set to be heard at a Tel Aviv court today.Strategic Affairs Min-ister Gilad Erdan said in an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday that Israel had the right to protect itself and decide who enters its borders despite growing international criticism.We are doing whatever we believe that is right for the security of the state of Israel and that is more important than whatever the New York Times or other newspapers around the world will say about our policy,Ž Erdan said.His remarks come after the Times published an opinion piece by columnist Bret Stephens and editor Bari Weiss critical of Israels han-dling of Alqasems case. More than 300 academ-ics penned a letter in the British Guardian Wednesday calling the case an attack on aca-demic freedom.ŽWhile waiting for her appeal to be heard, Alqasem has been spend-ing her days in a closed area with little access to a telephone, no internet and a bed that was infested with bedbugs, according to people who have spoken to her.Israel defends actions against former UF student Leroy Williams Leroy Williams was born to the late Edythe Homer Martin and Benjamin Daniels on February 12, 1931 in Tampa, FL.

STALKINGFrom Page A3George Zimmerman looks at the jury as he testi“ es in a Seminole County courtroom on Sept. 13, 2016, in Orlando, Fla. [RED HUBER/ORLANDO SENTINEL VIA AP, POOL, FILE] Zimmerman was accused of sending threatening messages to a private investigator who had contacted him about a documentary series on Martin. The documentary was produced by rapper Jay-Z. You could palpate her skin and feel the screws.ŽThe insurance company who covered the second accident driver paid a small amount. State Farm, meanwhile, refused to pay medical bills in excess of the policy it covered … around $300,000, Copeland said. The bills came to more than $550,000.The case dragged on. State Farm hired doctors and a medical billing clerk to refute the costs. They also hired biomechanical engineers and a private detective to follow and videotape Brower. Cope-land had to counter with his own experts.One of the dangers in cases with dueling experts is that jurors eyes can start to glaze over.For whatever reason, they were very engaged,Ž Copeland said.The insurance companys lawyers claimed Brower committed fraud when she was observed kayaking with friends. A defense doctor hired to examine her claimed he saw her running through the parking lot.Shortly after the 2015 surgery, she was observed walking, bend-ing at the waist, driving, running and jumping over a large puddle in the rain in contrast to what she testified to after the last updateƒ.Ž State Farms motion read, referring to the doctor visit.A hearing was held. It was very entertaining,Ž Copeland said.Her doctors testified that they had been train-ing her with core-strength training, including kaya-king. She was doing exactly what they wanted her to do,Ž Copeland said.Copeland said he proved that the doctor who supposedly saw her running could not possibly have witnessed what he had testified about. A young lawyer Copeland had hired to witness the doctors exam swore that Brower was walking, not running, in the parking lot. Copeland also hired a forensic videographer to record the outside of the building and the interior. It was impossible to see Brower from the window, the video showed.The trial began on Sept. 24. When it ended on Oct. 4, the jury awarded $575,000 for past medical bills, $275,000 for future bills, $200,000 for past pain and suffering and $1.3 million for future pain and suffering.It was a pleasant surprise for Copeland and Brower. Lake County has a reputa-tion for small jury awards, and so does neighboring Polk County. Copeland said a brain injury case he tried there recently was disappointing. Shes very happy with the verdict,Ž Copeland said.Brower could not be reached for comment. VERDICTFrom Page A3

The euthanizations hap-pened Oct. 9, 2014, and Johnston was fired the next day.The Sheriffs Office released multiple statements to the press in the following days stating Johnston was fired for killing animals without attempting to find alternatives.At one point, 147 animal deaths were attributed to Johnston, who said the accusation and the statements released by the Sheriffs Office had ruined her reputation.Since she had no opportunity to defend herself from the accu sation, a claim corroborated by Bor-ders in court documents, she claimed the decision to fire her was unconstitutional and that the statements were unfairly damaging.At that time, though, the case was dismissed because she supposedly skipped a step by going straight to the federal court system.The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals reversed that decision in February this year when it found that there was no appropriate remedy through state courts, and the case went back to federal court in late August. JURYFrom Page A11935 Labor Day storm and 1969s Camille.Meteorolog ists first got a sense something big could be happening by watching how Michaels eye changed shape. Early Tuesday, it was oddly shaped and ragged. Later in the morning it started to get better orga-nized, and by Tuesday night real-time satellite imagery was showing the eye get-ting stronger and scarier by the minute.Another factor: Its pres-sure, the measurement meteorologists use to gauge a hurricanes strength. The lower the pressure, the stronger the storm. Before landfall, Michaels pres-sure fell so low it looked like the winds were sure to pick up fast, said Ryan Maue, a meteorologist for weathermodels.com.And none of the factors that hold a storm back were present, especially something called wind shear.Ž Wind shear is when theres a mismatch either in speed or direction between winds near the surface and those five to six miles up.That mismatch pushes the storm overŽ or decapitates it, Kossin said. When the wind shear near Michael eased, the storm took off, he said.Its kind of like someone was holding on to it when it was trying to run and they let it go,Ž Kossin said.Another huge factor was the water temperature. Warm water is the energy that fuels hurri-canes, and the Gulf water is 4 to 5 degrees warmer than normal.Water temperatures in the Gulf of Mexico vary along with weather, but some scientists said the warm waters are signs of human-caused climate change.Have humans contributed to how dangerous Michael is?Ž Kossin said. Now we can look at how warm the waters are and that certainly has contrib-uted to how intense Michael is and its intensification.ŽThe warm waters, Kossin said, are a human finger-printŽ of climate change.Kossin and others have a study out this month in the Journal of Climate with computer simulations showing that human-caused global warming will increase rapid intensification of tropical weather across the globe in the future.Other studies have shown rapid intensification has already increased over past decades. One study this year in Geophysical Research Letters found that since 1986, the rate of intensifica-tion of storms like Michael has increased by about 13 mph. MICHAELFrom Page A1 Im worried about my daughter and grandbaby. I dont know where they are. You know, thats hard,Ž she said, choking back tears.Hurricane-force winds extended up to 45 miles from Michaels center. Forecast-ers said rainfall could reach up to a foot, and the lifethreatening storm surge could swell to 14 feet.A water-level station in Apalachicola, close to where Michael came ashore, reported a surge of nearly 8 feet.Based on its internal baro-metric pressure, Michael was the third most powerful hurricane to hit the U.S. mainland, behind the unnamed Labor Day storm of 1935 and Camille in 1969. Based on wind speed, it was the fourth-strongest, behind the Labor Day storm (184 mph), Camille and Andrew in 1992. It appeared to be so pow-erful that it was expected to remain a hurricane as it moved into Alabama and Georgia early today. Forecasters said it will unleash damaging wind and rain all the way into the Carolinas, which are still recovering from Hurricane Florences epic flooding.At 5 p.m. Wednesday, Michael was still packing 125 mph winds as the eye approached southeastern Alabama and southwest Georgia. It was moving north-northeast at 16 mph.At the White House, Pres-ident Donald Trump said the government is absolutely ready for the storm.Ž God bless everyone because its going to be a rough one,Ž he said. A very dangerous one.ŽIn Mexico Beach, population 1,000, the storm shattered homes, leaving floating piles of lumber. The lead-gray water was so high that roofs were about all that could be seen of many homes. In Panama City, plywood and metal flew off the front of a Holiday Inn Express. Part of the awning fell and shattered the glass front door of the hotel, and the rest of the awning wound up on vehicles parked below it.Oh my God, what are we seeing?Ž said evacuee Rachel Franklin, her mouth hanging open. The hotel swimming pool had whitecaps, and peoples ears popped because of the drop in barometric pressure. The roar from the hurricane sounded like an airplane taking off.Meteorologists watched satellite imagery in complete awe as the storm intensified.We are in new territory,Ž National Hurricane Center Meteorologist Dennis Felt-gen wrote on Facebook. The historical record, going back to 1851, finds no Cate-gory 4 hurricane ever hitting the Florida panhandle.ŽColorado State University hurricane expert Phil Klotzbach said in an email: I really fear for what things are going to look like there tomorrow at this time.ŽThe storm is likely to fire up the debate over global warming.Scientists say global warming is responsible for more intense and more frequent extreme weather, such as storms, droughts, floods and fires. But without extensive study, they cannot directly link a single weather event to the chang-ing climate.With Election Day less than a month away, the crisis was seen as a test of leadership for Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican running for the Senate, and Tallahas-see Mayor Andrew Gillum, the Democratic nominee for governor. SLAMSFrom Page A1

A8 Thursday, October 11, 2018 | DailyCommercial.com BUSINESS By Marley Jay and Stan ChoeThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ U.S. stocks plunged to their worst loss in eight months on Wednesday as technology companies con-tinued to drop. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 831 points.The losses were widespread, and stocks that have been the biggest winners on the market the last few years, including technology companies and retailers, suffered steep declines. Apple and Amazon both had their worst day in two and a half years.The Nasdaq composite, which has a high concentration of technology companies, had its biggest loss in more than two years.Alec Young, managing direc-tor of global markets research at FTSE Russell, said investors fear that rising interest rates and growing expenses are going to erode company profits next year. The tax cuts juiced earnings this year and thats not sustain-able,Ž he said. The markets starting to say that the glass may be half empty.ŽThe S&P 500 index sank 94.66 points, or 3.3 percent, to 2,785.68. The benchmark index fell for the fifth straight day, which hadnt happened since just before the 2016 presiden-tial election.The Nasdaq composite tumbled 315.97 points, or 4.1 percent, to 7,422.05. Its fallen 7.5 percent in just five days.The Dow Jones Industrial Average gave up 831.83 points, or 3.1 percent, to 25,598.74. The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks shed 46.45 points, or 2.9 percent, to 1,575.41.After a long stretch of relative calm, the stock market has suf-fered sharp losses over the last week as bond yields surged. Stocks had come close to big drops in the last few days, but each time they recovered some of their losses. That didnt happen Wednesday as stocks fell further late in the day.Apple gave up 4.6 percent to $216.36 and Microsoft dropped 5.4 percent to $106.16. Amazon skidded 6.2 percent to $1,755.25. Industrial and internet companies also fell hard. Boeing lost 4.7 percent to $367.57 and Alphabet, Googles parent company, gave up 4.6 percent to $1,092.16.Insurance companies dropped as Hurricane Michael continued to gather strength and came ashore in Florida bringing winds of up to 155 mph. Berkshire Hathaway dipped 4.7 percent to $213.10 and reinsurer Everest Re slid 5.1 percent to $217.73.Luxury retailers tumbled after LVMH, the parent of Louis Vuitton, said its sales growth in China slowed. Tiffany plunged 10.2 percent to $110.38 and Ralph Lauren fell 8.4 percent to $116.96.The biggest driver for the market over the last week has been interest rates, which began spurting higher following sev-eral encouraging reports on the economy. Higher rates can slow economic growth, erode corpo-rate profits and make investors less willing to pay high prices for stocks.The 10-year Treasury yield remained at 3.20 percent, about where it was late Tuesday, after earlier touching 3.24 percent. It was at just 3.05 percent early last week and 2.82 percent in late August.Technology and internet-based companies are known for their high profit margins, and many have reported explosive growth in recent years, with corresponding gains in their stock prices.Gina Martin Adams, chief equity strategist for Bloomberg Intelligence, said the stocks have become more volatile in the last few months because investors have concerns about their future profitability.Amazon recently announced they were increasing wages, Facebook is spending a ton on security,Ž she said. Semicon-ductors have the most exposure to China out of segments in the S&P 500.ŽSears Holdings nosedived after the Wall Street Journal reported that the struggling retailer hired an advisory firm to prepare a bankruptcy filing that could come within days. The stock fell 16.8 percent to 49 cents. It was more than $40 five years ago.Sears has closed hundreds of stores and sold several famous brands or put them on the block as it sees more customers aban-don its stores. Benchmark U.S. crude oil fell 2.4 percent to $73.17 a barrel in New York. Brent crude, the international standard, lost 2.2 percent to $83.09 a barrel in London.Wholesale gaso-line shed 2.7 percent to $2.02 a gallon.

DailyCommercial.com | Thursday, October 11, 2018 A9 The ugly, brutal battle to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh „ now Justice Kavanaugh „ to the U.S. Supreme Court will leave exposed wounds in our political system that wont soon heal. But those are tied to ideology. We must be more concerned about the now-emerging gripes from anti-Kavanaugh forces that attack the structure of our political system. If those gain a toehold in the popular consciousness, we might lose something far more precious. On Saturday, The Washington Post ran an article that noted Kavanaugh will be the first justice nominated by someone who lost the popular vote (President Donald Trump) to earn his seat on the bench with support from senators representing less than half of the country while having his nomination opposed by a majority of the country.Ž The Post followed up that analysis with a piece on Monday that noted a palpable, growing sense among the Democratic base that the system is rigged against them.Ž Along these lines, tweets appeared on Saturday from folks like MSNBC host Lawrence ODonnell and influential Harvard Law School professor Laurence Tribe. ODonnell, who was a Democratic strategist before he became a TV host, noted, Founders design flaws in democracy „ electoral college & 2 senators per state no matter the size of population „ have created the current Supreme Court.Ž That came in response to Tribes tweet, which referenced a New York Times editorial arguing in the same vein: Of the 5 justices picked by Republicans, including Kavanaugh, 4 were nominated by presidents who first took office after losing the popular vote. And the senators who will vote to confirm Kavanaugh represent vastly fewer Americans than those voting no.Ž Such comments attack an American political system that has proven extremely durable to threats, foreign and domestic, for 230 years „ a system that, by restraining the raw power of government and respecting the rights of those in the political minority, has created more freedom and respect for the individuals rights than any that came before it or that currently exists. Yes, Hillary Clinton received almost 2.9 million more votes than Trump. But, again, the Electoral College exists to protect the minority. So, while they appear anachronistic to people who obsess over the concept of fairnessŽ „ even when it often means being blatantly unfair to others „ the Electoral College and the idea of balancing population imbalances by giving each state two senators were designed to protect the minoritys rights. They were the Founders bulwarks against the tyranny of the majority. As the libertarian philosopher Ludwig von Mises wrote nearly 70 years ago, It is not true that the masses are always right and know the means for attaining the ends aimed at. ... Majorities too may err and destroy our civilization.Ž We tempt that fate if we surrender to the idea that our systems design flaws,Ž as ODonnell put it, must be fixed.OUR OPINIONDesign aws not the problem ANOTHER OPINION In a speech announcing her vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, reminded me of some of the great orators of the past. Her speech was measured in tone, substantive in content and delivered with conviction. Collins is no conservative. She has voted in favor of abortion and same-sex marriage while towing a more moderate line on economics. Her speech supporting Kavanaugh and denouncing the smears against him and the distortion of his judicial record was as good as any delivered by her more conservative colleagues. She correctly labeled the process that has become corrupt, nasty and divisive: We have come to the conclusion of a confirmation process that has become so dysfunctional it looks more like a caricature of a gutterlevel political campaign than a solemn occasion.Ž Collins chastised activists who sent out fundraising letters opposing President Trumps nominee even before Kavanaugh was announced: ...we have seen specialinterest groups whip their followers into a frenzy by spreading misrepresentations and outright falsehoods...Ž She didnt mention the major medias complicity in helping those groups to publicize the falsehoods with virtually no corrections to their outlandish claims. Noting Our Supreme Court confirmation process has been in steady decline for more than 30 years,Ž she added this wish: One can only hope that the Kavanaugh nomination is where the process has finally hit rock bottom.Ž Given the level of virulent hatred by the left I wouldnt bet on it. After saying she has been assured by Kavanaugh of his respect for precedent „ by which she meant fealty to Roe v. Wade and the Affordable Care Act „ she said that Kavanaugh was not a sure vote for policies of the Trump administration. She pointed out that other justices nominated by Republican presidents have voted in ways that went against their wishes, United States vs. Nixon being one of the more significant ones. There was a glimmer of hope in Collins speech for those who believe Roe was wrongly decided. She said, There are, of course, rare and extraordinary times where the Supreme Court would rightly overturn a precedent.Ž In what might be one of those carved in stoneŽ quotes, Collins delivered her most profound line: We must always remember that it is when passions are most inflamed that fairness is most in jeopardy.Ž Fairness was not just in jeopardy; it was murdered. Democrats and activists promoted inaccurate and unfair stories and treated as truth the testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her. They did the same with others who claimed, without evidence, that Kavanaugh participated in, or was present at, alleged gang rapes fueled by drugs and alcohol. About that Collins said, This outlandish allegation was put forth without any credible supporting evidence and simply parroted public statements of others. That such an allegation can find its way into the Supreme Court confirmation process is a stark reminder about why the presumption of innocence is so ingrained in our American consciousness.Ž In this instance, the presumption of guilt was the rule. Though there were no corroborating witnesses and Ford, herself, could not remember significant details about the evening, virtually all Senate Democrats and many Americans appeared ready to lynch Kavanaugh, causing harm to his reputation, character and grief to his family and friends, including many women who issued statements about his honor and fitness for the court. Nearing the end of her speech, Collins said of the process surrounding the Kavanaugh nomination: It is a case of people bearing ill will towards those who disagree with them. In our intense focus on our differences, we have forgotten the common values that bind us together as Americans.Ž Unfortunately, a younger generation of Americans knows little about those values. They seem to be rarely taught in public schools and universities. That is why they are slipping away. Young people would do well to be reminded of them by reading Sen. Collins speech.

The General Assembly was preparing to vote to condemn the U.S. for moving its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and Haley was having none of it. There is a great photo of her voting against the draft resolution and casting a stern, side-eye stare at her colleagues. There is her tweet warning that she will be taking namesŽ of countries that voted later in the week to condemn Americas decision yet still wanted to receive U.S. foreign aid. The American right „ from wonky neocons to MAGA populists „ swooned. With the news that Haley will leave office at the end of the year, I thought of that showdown nearly a year ago. The conventional wisdom then from Trumps critics was that Haley had needlessly bullied the envoys of other nations. It was an embarrassment to treat the hallowed halls of the secretariat building like a Mafia social club. Diplomats are supposed to persuade, not alienate. Despite Haleys stern warning, and others like it, she has proved effective. As I wrote at the time, the same week that Haley promised to take names, she won two unanimous votes at the UN Security Council to ratchet up sanctions on North Korea and tighten the screening of potential foreign fighters leaving Syria. In July Haley managed to get approval for an overhaul of the UN peacekeeping budget, cutting costs and streamlining the bureaucracy. Haley didnt always press for reform. She also announced in July that the U.S. will be leaving the UN Human Rights Council, accusing it of providing cover for the worlds most inhumane regimes while focusing its condemnation exclusively on the worlds only Jewish state. A fair criticism of Haleys tenure is that in her defense of the universal rights of all people, she did not manage to win the support of her boss at the White House. President Donald Trump has too often flattered the kind of tyrants that Haley scolds. So there were moments when Haleys foreign policy was in tension with Trumps. The best example came in April, when Haley went on the Sunday talk shows to promise new sanctions on Russia for its role in abetting the Syrian regime after a chemical weapons attack. White House officials walked it back the next day. When White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow suggested Haley may have been confused, the ambassador responded: With all due respect, I dont get confused.Ž This tension reflects a wider rift within the Republican Party. Traditional conservatives embrace American exceptionalism and chafe at the UN vision of a community of nations, all deserving equal respect. Trump takes a different view. As he said in his address to the UN General Assembly last month: I honor the right of every nation in this room to pursue its own customs, beliefs and traditions. The United States will not tell you how to live or work or worship. We only ask that you honor our sovereignty in return.Ž In this respect, Trump might be called a transactionalist. Haley is clearly an exceptionalist. In a speech last May at the International Republican Institute, she said the UNs foundational dilemmaŽ was that it is set up to treat all countries the same.Ž She went on: But all countries are not fundamentally the same. When you try to pretend that there is no difference between the good guys and the bad guys, thats always a win for the bad guys.Ž Haley proved its possible to speak plainly about the bad guys and still gain their cooperation. Its a record that would make any diplomat proud „ and a lesson her soon-to-be-former boss might take to heart. Eli Lake is a columnist for Bloomberg News.

Double pass. Rocker step. Throwback toss. Those are apparently just a glimpse into Dan Mullens playbook.The first-year Florida coach has turned to a little trickery to help the 14th-ranked Gators mask their offensive deficiencies.Daring DanŽ is perfect on the season with them, too.His latest play-calling masterpiece came Saturday against LSU. Mullen dialed up a throwback pass from seldom-used tight end Lucas Krull, a former left-hander pitcher at Arkansas, to quar-terback Feleipe Franks that set up the go-ahead touch-down in a 27-19 victory.The timing was impeccable. The execution was flawless. The outcome was something Florida players and coaches are starting to expect.A week earlier, the Gators used a double pass nicknamed KodakŽ to beat Mississippi State 13-6. The play was named after rapper and Florida fan Kodak Black.So what about Krulls 15-yard completion to Franks?Thats just called throwback,Ž Mullen said. We have some cool, other plays in there. ... It was one that we had a long time ago. I wasnt smart enough to create cool names for plays until about four or five years ago. Thats just one weve had for a long, long time. But, sorry. Ive got to be more creative than just throwback.ŽNo one will mind plain as Tricks have been a treat for UFDaring Dan pulling out all the stops for GatorsFlorida head coach Dan Mullen celebrates with fans as he leaves the “ eld after defeating “ fth-ranked LSU on Saturday in Gainesville. [AP PHOTO/JOHN RAOUX] By Mike FitzpatrickThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Aaron Judge and the New York Yankees couldnt wait to get back home.Now, thats exactly where theyre staying.CC Sabathia became the latest pitcher to put New York in an early hole as rookie manager Aaron Boone again stuck with his starter too long, and the Yankees fell just short of extending their season Tuesday night with a 4-3 loss to the rival Boston Red Sox in Game 4 of their AL Divi-sion Series.Thats the one team that you dont want to lose to,Ž outfielder Brett Gardner said. We hate losing to them and we love beating them. Obvi-ously, they just had our number this year.ŽNew York mounted a last-ditch rally against wild closer Craig Kimbrel, scoring twice in the ninth inning. But the Yankees comeback stalled when Gary Sanchezs bases-loaded sacrifice fly was caught on the left-field warning track, and rookie Gley-ber Torres grounded out with two on to end it „ sort of.The play at first base was close, so both teams and a sellout crowd held their breath during a dramatic replay review before the out call was upheld following a 63-second delay. Kimbrel and the Red Sox „ suspended in mid-celebration for a minute „ resumed bouncing around in excitement.We played a really Out at home: Yankees fall to rival By Paul NewberryThe Associated PressATLANTA „ The first half of the season was a breeze for No. 2 Georgia.No daunting opponents. No game closer than two touchdowns.Now the real season begins.The Bulldogs must run a gauntlet of four straight games against Southeastern Conference opponents currently ranked in the Top 25, beginning with Saturdays trip to No. 13 LSU.Anytime you go on the road in the SEC, its an adven-ture,Ž coach Kirby Smart said. Were going to play some good teams coming up, absolutely. Its tough everywhere in the SEC. Go talk to Tennessee and ask them the road theyre dealing with. Go talk to LSU „ they just played Florida. I mean, theres no time to cry about it. Nobody wants to hear that. You gotta get ready to go play.ŽComing off a trip to the national championship game, Georgia (6-0, 4-0 SEC) has yet to be seriously challenged.But beating teams like Austin Peay and Vanderbilt by an average of nearly 30 points a game makes this a rather mysterious team.

[AP PHOTO/MARK ZALESKI, FILE] By Tom CanavanThe Associated PressEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. „ After turning over half their roster, its not surprising the New York Giants are losing.The defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles are another story. They were expected to make a run at being the first team to repeat since the New England Patriots won title games after the 2003 and 2004 seasons.The Eagles (2-3) head into tonights game at MetLife Stadium against the Giants (1-4) looking to avoid their first three-game losing streak since the 2016 season. A fourth loss would be more than they had last season.While some might point to a Super Bowl hangover, its also a combination of having a target on their backs, injuries and bad play.We know were going to get everybodys best and weve seen it already this season,Ž Eagles coach Doug Pederson said.Ive addressed the team that way. It doesnt mean we have to; its not about panic mode or anything in that nature, its just a heightened sense of urgency. The mistakes were making are self-inflicted and its keeping us from possibly winning a game or two here or there, and we understand that.ŽSo do the Giants. They have not played horribly in coach Pat Shurmurs first season. They are not making enough plays, and too many mistakes.Odell Beckham Jr., who caught a touchdown and threw another in the Giants 33-31 loss to Carolina last weekend, is glad this is a short week and the Eagles are the opponent in the weak NFC East where no team has a winning record.Defending Super Bowl champs coming in here, Thursday night game, but right now the focus is more on this just one game, and not putting so much pressure on what it could do for us,Ž Beck-ham said. But this is a game that we need to win against a division rival.ŽThe Eagles have won the past three against New York and seven of eight.Eagles struggling post Super Bowl, Giants still losing

PAGE 13

DailyCommercial.com | Thursday, October 11, 2018 B31A-4 following a 68-0 win against Bronson on Friday.In classes 1A through 4A, six teams from each of the four regions will advance into the postsea-son. In classes 5A through 8A, eight teams from each region „ four district champions and the four highest PPR „ will trans-fer into the postseason.The final rankings „ along with playoff seed-ings „ will be announced on Nov. 4.In Class 4A-Region 2, The Villages (37.67 PPR) began last week as the top-ranked team in the region. However, following a 49-13 win against Umatilla, the Buffalo dropped to No. 4 this week.A likely factor in the Buffalos fall from the top spot was the won-loss record of their previous five opponents, four of which lost on Friday. Opponents won-loss record is one of the criteria used to determine PPR.The Buffalo will get a chance to tie the program record with seven straight wins to open the season on Friday at Interlachen.Also in Class 4A-2, South Sumter (34.71) maintained its stranglehold on the sixth spot in the rankings, despite a 42-21 loss to Dunnellon, the second-ranked team in the region. The Raiders (3-4) have earned 18 bonus points already this season, because they have played six teams that earned playoff berths in the 2015-16 scheduling cycle „ another criteria for calculating a teams PPR.South Sumter travels to Mount Dora on Friday, with both teams looking for a win against a regional opponent.Mount Dora (31.50) enters Fridays game ranked eighth in Class 4A-2 with a 3-3 record. Also in Class 4A-2, Umatilla (25.00) is 11th.In Class 6A-Region 2, South Lake (39.83) jumped two spots to fourth following a 45-14 win against Eustis. The Eagles are the third of four teams from District 5 who would earn a postseason berth, based on Tuesdays rankings.Ocala Vanguard (second with a 43.33 PPR), Gainesville (third, 41.67), and Ocala Lake Weir (eighth, 37.50) are the other three Class 6A-District 5 teams in the hunt for the eight regional berths.South Lake plays at district and regional rival Leesburg on Friday. Leesburg (29.50), which upset Tavares last week, improved to 19th in the region.And in Class 1A-Region 4, Wildwood (34.71) jumped into the playoff fray, moving into sixth place after its third straight win. The Wildcats, who opened the season with two straight losses, began the week in seventh place.If the postseason began this week, Wildwood would travel to Frostproof for an opening-round game. Frostproof knocked off the Wildcats 59-38 at Wildwood in last years playoffs.PPR for other area schools and region standing include: Class 7A-Region 1 „ Lake Minneola (15th, 34.83) and East Ridge (19th, 32.00); Class 5A-Region 4 „ Eustis (14th, 33.29) and Tavares (16th, 31.33).First Academy of Leesburg and Mount Dora Christian Academy compete in the Sunshine State Athletic Conference and are not part of the weekly rankings. Leesburgs Lance Erving attracting attentionLance Erving, a major contributor to Leesburgs back-to-back state cham-pionship boys basketball team, has been attracting the attention of various college coaches.In a recent tweet, Erving indicated Louisiana Tech is among the schools that have recently begun to show interest in the 6-foot-2 guard. His play also drew special attention at last weekends Hoop Exchange Fall Fes-tival Showcase in Apopka, which attracted some of the top prep players in the state.Lance scored at will against DME (Sports Academy team in Daytona Beach,Ž evaluators noted. He stood out immediately. Lance was very poised, and it showed on the court. His defense also stood out. We will keep our eye on Lance Erving and see where he ends up.A member of the Daily Commercials All-Area First Team, Erving averaged 18.3 points and 2.7 steals per game in 2018. With Erving contributing big numbers on the floor, „ he scored 28 points in Leesburgs 62-61 win against Sarasota Booker in last years Class 6A state semifinals „ the Yellow Jackets had a 53-7 record over the past two seasons, including a 30-1 mark in 2017-18. Montverde Academy duo receives high praiseA pair of Montverde Academy senior standouts „ Omar Payne and Har-lond Beverly „ also showed big-time skills at last weekends Hoop Exchange showcase in Apopka.Payne, a 6-foot-9 power forward who transferred to Montverde Academy from Kissimmee Osceola, has already committed to play at the University of Florida next season. Nonetheless, Payne, who sports a wing-span of more than seven feet, said he has a lot to prove this season.Payne helped the Kowboys to a 21-7 record in 2017-18 and a spot in the Class 9A-Region 2 cham-pionship, where they dropped a 57-54 decision to eventual state champion Orlando Oak Ridge.Beverly, a 6-foot-4 guard from Michigan, was the best guardŽ at the showcase, according to evaluators. Scouts noted: (Beverly) showed his ability to finish above the rim with ease. Beverly also shot the ball well from the perimeter.ŽAmong the NCAA Divi-sion I schools looking at Beverly are: Florida, Arizona State, Baylor, Michigan State, Missouri, Ohio State, Texas and Wisconsin. Tavares baseball team holding golf tournamentThe Tavares High School baseball team has scheduled its fourth annual Bulldog Baseball Golf Tournament for Nov. 10 at Deer Island Country Club in Tavares.Cost to play is $65 per player or $260 for a four-some and includes green fees, cart and range balls.The tournament will begin at 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start.There will be prizes for first, second and third places, as well as awards for closest to the pin and longest drive, along with other ticket prizes.

NOTEBOOKFrom Page B1long as its productive.And the Gators (5-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) have been productive while winning three straight. It hasnt been particularly pretty on offense, mostly because the teams line is a work in progress and Franks is far from a pol-ished passer.Mullen, to his credit, has found ways to get the most out of both.Hes not asking the line to try to manhandle more physical fronts in a league filled with them, and he has Franks making quick reads and, if nobody is open, scrambling for yards.Add in some decep-tion, and Mullen and the Gators are doing enough to complement a stout defense that continues to be the backbone of the team.Hes got every trick in the bag and he knows when to call the right play at the right time,Ž Krull said. Hes tremendous at what he does.ŽOn a first-and-10 play at the LSU 17 and trail-ing 19-14, the 6-foot-6 Krull started in motion from right to left, took a handoff that resembled an end-around and then pulled up and floated a pass back to Franks, who had slipped into the flat mostly unnoticed.Franks was tackled at the 2, setting up Lamical Perines touchdown run on the next play.I was hoping someone would run with me and Id kind of snatch it off someones head or something like that (and) make SportsCenter top plays,Ž Franks said.It certainly will end up on Franks growing highlight reel.He threw a jump pass for a touchdown in the season opener, stirring memories of Florida great Tim Tebow. Franks started the double pass last week, the one that ended with Kadarius Toneys 20-yard TD toss to Moral Stephens.Franks 13th touch-down pass of the season came Saturday on a rocker step to Stephens, another play Tebow made famous at Florida. Franks took the shotgun snap, stepped toward the line of scrim-mage like he was about to tuck it and run, and then rocked back and completed a 3-yarder to Stephens. GATORSFrom Page B1this point going forward we need to be on our A game, because this is our meat of our schedule,Ž receiver Terry Godwin said. We havent played our best yet.ŽMaking this stretch even more challenging: only one game is between the hedges.After traveling to LSU (5-1, 2-1), Georgia has an off week before heading to Jacksonville for their Cocktail Party game against No. 14 Florida (5-1, 3-1). Thats followed by another true road game at No. 18 Kentucky (5-1, 3-1), before the Bulldogs finally return to Sanford Stadium to host No. 21 Auburn (4-2, 1-2).If the Bulldogs get through all that unscathed, theyll almost surely head to the SEC championship game with a perfect 12-0 record. The final two games are both at home against lowly Massachusetts and state rival Georgia Tech.Every week, the team gets better, they get more experience,Ž tight end Isaac Nauta said. Obviously, weve got a tough stretch up ahead with a lot of good opponents, but our preparations not going to change. If any-thing, were going to push harder because we know the competitions going to get better. Its exciting knowing youre going to go into some of these big games and thats what you want to be a part of being a foot-ball player.Ž Missouri was the only team to remotely challenge Georgia, hanging within striking distance going to the fourth quar-ter before losing 43-29. In every other game, the final margin was at least 24 points.Thats made it even more important for the Bulldogs to challenge themselves during the week.Weve been tested,Ž Nauta said. We believe that some of the best competition were going to play is in practice.ŽThis will be Georgias first trip to Baton Rouge since 2008. While no one on the roster has played in Death Valley, they all have a sense of what theyll be up against in Tiger Stadiums notoriously raucous atmosphere.From everything Ive heard, its supposed to be an electric place to play in and theyve really got the home-field advantage,Ž Nauta said. Im ready to see what its like.Ž Smart already knows. He played there in 1998 during his senior season at Georgia, spent the 2004 season as an LSU assistant, and returned four more times while serving as Alabamas defensive coordinator. GEORGIAFrom Page B1 Lance Erving, a major contributor to Leesburgs back-toback state championship boys basketball team, has been attracting the attention of various college coaches. [PAUL RYAN /CORRESPONDENT] hard season, we managed to win 100 games and then we get to this point and we just cant finish off a series against the Red Sox. Its tough,Ž reliever David Robertson said.Asked about his long fly, Sanchez said through a translator: I wasnt sure about it. I hit it well, but I got under it.ŽAfter beating Oakland in the AL wild-card game, it was a humbling playoff exit for a power-packed Yankees team that added reigning NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton last offseason and hit a major league-record 267 home runs.With the stakes at their highest, however, the Yankees never left the yard in two home games versus Boston. They were outscored 20-4 as the AL East champs took the best-of-five series 3-1 and advanced to the ALCS against defending World Series champion Houston.I didnt expect to come here and lose two in a row. I expected to come back here and win two in a row,Ž Gardner said.Last year, it was the Yankees who reached the AL Championship Series before their surprising run ended with a Game 7 loss to the Astros.This time, a 2018 season that began with sky-high expectations „ now over in bitter disappointment.While the Red Sox got strong starts from Chris Sale, Nathan Eovaldi and Rick Porcello during the series, Yankees starters were charged with 15 runs over 13 innings in four games. Masahiro Tanaka was the only one to get an out in the fourth.They just had a lot of stuff going right. Were very equal teams,Ž Sabathia insisted. The ball just bounced their way.ŽAdding to the humiliation, the Red Sox got to revel in a second cham-pagne celebration at Yankee Stadium in less than three weeks.Boston also clinched its third consecutive division crown on enemy ground Sept. 20.They got momentum on their side and never really slowed down,Ž Robertson said.So while the Red Sox roll on seeking their fourth World Series title in 15 years, the Yankees own but one pennant and championship during that span (2009).On deck, a long winter of wondering how theyve fallen behind in a rivalry they dominated for nearly a century.All that changed in 2004, when Mariano Rivera was finally unable to close out the pesky Red Sox and they rallied for an unprecedented comeback from a 3-0 deficit to win the ALCS. Boston took Games 6 and 7 at Yankee Stadium on the way to its first World Series championship in 86 years. This was the first playoff meeting between the clubs since then, and the Red Sox once again made themselves right at home in the Bronx. After splitting two games at Fenway Park, they quieted the Yankees bois-terous crowd „ and their dangerous bats. New York hadnt gone consecutive games at Yankee Stadium without a home run since April.Definitely frustrating,Ž Boone said. I think one of their goals in this series was to keep us in the ballpark, and then coming here where were so good at that, they were able to do it. Credit to them for being able to hold us down and shut us down, but in the end, you dont move on usually when you cant get enough big hits in a series, and they just outplayed us a little bit.ŽBefore the last two games, New York was 7-0 at home over the past two postseasons.Confident players were excited about returning to the Big Apple, and Judge even walked past Bostons clubhouse inside Fenway Park early Sunday morning with Frank Sinatras rendition of New York, New YorkŽ blaring from a boom box.Its a good song. And Aaron, hes one of our resi-dent deejays, so hes got a pretty extensive playlist,Ž Boone said later that day at Yankee Stadium, a smirk filling his face. We like to hear that song sometimes when we win a big game.ŽThat was the last time they did.Bostons 16-1 blowout Monday marked the most lopsided defeat for a home team in postseason history, and shortstop Didi Gregorius called it an embarrassing day.ŽBoone acknowledged some regret in allowing ace Luis Severino to start the fourth inning down 3-0. Severino was removed with the bases loaded and nobody out, but relievers Lance Lynn and Chad Green quickly let the game get out of hand.

But based on James Hansens massive 2005 book First Man: The Life of Neil Armstrong,Ž with a script by Josh Singer (Spotlight,Ž The PostŽ), its much more focused on what led Neil Armstrong to become commander of Apollo 11 and go on that First Man goes on a cerebral, emotional voyage to the moonNeil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) narrowly escapes a training hazard. [UNIVERSAL PICTURES] First ManŽWritten by Josh Singer; directed by Damien Chazelle With Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Kyle Chandler, Jason Clarke, Corey Stoll Rated PG-13 ROCKTOBERFEST: From 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Wooton Park, 100 E.

DEAR ABBY: I have been dating the most amazing man for the past 11 months. As we approach the one-year anniversary of the day we met, this "perfect" man is showing some not-so-perfect traits. I was unlucky in love for many years until he swept me off my feet. We have both become extremely close with each other's respective friends and family. He's everything I have been searching for in a life partner and husband. But when he drinks, he condes his deep fears of dating me and enumerates each and every one of my relationship insecurities -nagging, anxiety, loneliness, etc. The next day he acts like nothing happened! He swears up and down that it was the alcohol talking and he doesn't mean any of the harsh words he spoke the night before. Should I believe him? Please don't let me be the naive girl traveling down a dark rabbit hole. -SELF-CONSCIOUS GIRLFRIEND DEAR GIRLFRIEND: Your "amazing" man appears to be a loose-lipped lush. Not knowing him, I can't guess the degree to which he blacks out when he's been drinking. Some alcoholics don't remember what happened the night before. Others simply don't WANT to remember, so they claim amnesia. Regardless of how you feel about him, for your own well-being, draw the line and tell him he needs to stop drinking. If he's as alcohol-dependent as I suspect he is, he will give you an argument or an outright refusal. And that's your cue to tell him if he wants a future with you, he will have to make a choice.DEAR ABBY: My in-laws are angry that I have declined to host them over the holidays this year. My husband is never helpful. When company comes, he sits on his mobile phone while I do everything. I told his parents I can't have them over because all the responsibility falls on me. My "no" should sufce, but my mother-in-law hopes to argue me into hosting. We don't have children because I knew I would end up raising them alone. I don't want the in-laws here "hinting" that they need us to help them when my husband won't lift a nger. I recently became disabled, and my in-laws keep pressuring me to share my diagnosis with them. They think I should cheerfully do all the work of hosting them as a way to ght my disability! They are extremely nosy. I am now blocking her calls. I know they will spend their time here trying to get a look at my medications and any nancial information left out. What else can I do? -UNMERRY IN LOUISIANA DEAR UNMERRY: You should all try to achieve a workable compromise, if that's possible. Ask your MIL if she's prepared to take some of the responsibility off your shoulders if she and her husband visit. Suggest they stay in a hotel or motel rather than burden you. And your husband (their son) should back you up on this. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

No attempt is made to cover the ground in the book, as it sticks with eve nts that happened between 1961, when Armstrong „ a pilot with an engineering background „ took part in NASAs manned flight training program, and 1969, when the Eagle landed on the moon and Armstrong took that one small step. Its a long (140 minutes), slow-paced character study, punctuated by scenes of rousing action and unrelenting tension, and is a whittleddown history of how we got, to borrow a Jules Verne title, from the Earth to the moon. Its a triumph of the spirit story, with Ryan Gosling somberly portraying Armstrong as a man who wasnt necessarily going after glory, but trying to find solace from tragedy in his work. That thread of it is introduced in the films opening minutes, when cameras and all attention are trained on Armstrongs face after his young daughter succumbs to cancer. At that early point, his wife and young son are pretty much ignored, by the cameras and, as is revealed later, by Armstrong, who was consumed by grief. Throwing himself into his work, and displaying a calm demeanor and a bright mind, hes seen by NASA bigwigs as a good candidate for Gemini, a series of missions that would put two astronauts in orbit in a capsule as a learning experience for the threeman Apollo flights to the moon that would follow. But the solace he craved wasnt to be found at NASA, where the job is dangerous, and before long, tragedy is a regular occurrence in Armstrongs life there, too, as other astronauts in training go down in crashes and up in flames. The film starts splitting its time between work and home, with Armstrongs wife, Janet (Claire Foy) struggling to keep up her inner strength, knowing full well that Neil could be the next fatality, and trying to hold back on the pent-up anger caused by him disappearing into himself, by his indifference to being an attentive husband and father. Chazelle has put a lot of faith in both Gosling and Foy, in that hes constantly placing his cameras right up in their faces and letting them play much of their parts wordlessly, challenging viewers to figure out whats going on inside. As far as those exciting moments, theyre done with a great deal of flair. During one Gemini launchpad sequence, theres silence, broken by heavy breathing, joined by metallic creaking sounds, interrupted by the control room countdown, finally erupting into loud pandemonium, all of it taking place within the capsule. Later on, a successful mission in space goes wrong, resulting in a nerve-racking lesson of how to keep ones cool in adverse situations. Still later, if you know what the Apollo plugs-outŽ tests were, youll know whats coming; if you dont, youll go through an emotional wringer in that scene. By the time things lead up to the celebrated moon landing, its clear that Chazelle knows how to tell a gripping and unusually low-key story. Though I still like him better as a more kinetic, splashy director, hes achieved a specific major accomplishment here. In the lengthy scene where Armstrong slowly climbs down the ladder to the moons surface, theres complete silence in the film. The full-house audience I saw it with was also absolutely silent, as if everyone was holding their breath. It was a magical shared experience. It was one reason to go to a movie theater instead of watching a film on your couch. Ed Symkus writes about movies for More Content Now. He can be reached at esymkus@rcn.com.
