A2 Wednesday, October 17, 2018 | CAIROEgyptAir pulls magazine after Drew Barrymore articleEgyptian officials say EgyptAir has removed the latest edition of its in-flight magazine over a contentious article it published, purportedly based on an interview with American actress Drew Barrymore.They say the carrier had agreed with its publisher, Al-Ahram advertising agency, to stop printing more copies of the October issue of the maga-zine, Horus, and pull the ones already placed onboard the fleets aircraft.The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they werent authorized to talk to the media.Earlier this month, EgyptAir said Al-Ahram is to blame for Horus content and specifi-cally for the Barrymore article, which was riddled with misspellings and grammatical errors.

[CARLOS OSORIO/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]A couple of liberal Harvard law professors are lending their name to a new campaign to build support for expanding the Supreme Court by four justices in 2021.

[J. DAVID AKE/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]By Russ BynumThe Associated PressMEXICO BEACH, Fla. „ Hurricane Michael swamped Dena Frosts mobile home and obliterated the shop where she sold pottery beside the main highway running through Mexico Beach. Most of her neighbors saw similar destruction.The monstrous storm wrecked the mayors hardware store and the only grocery in this Gulf Coast town of about 1,000 people. It splintered beach-front condos and smashed the inn that has welcomed tourists for four decades. It reduced seafood restaurants to rubble and literally broke the bank.As Frost, 62, searched on Sunday among the large clay pots lying scattered among her shops ruins for undamaged inventory she might still sell, how soon „ or even if „ she might be able to reopen her business of 12 years was a question too painful to bear.It is so devastating right now that you cant think about,Ž Frost said. Mexico Beach was the loveliest place on Earth. And now its gone.ŽAs they face rebuilding a town that Michael practically wiped off the map, Frost and others worry about what Mexico Beach might become.For decades, the town has persisted as a stubbornly middlebrow enclave on what residents proudly refer to as Floridas Forgot-ten Coast.Ž Businesses are locally owned. The closest thing to a national franchise is Mayor Al Catheys Ace Hardware store. While some locals owned posh homes that overlooked the beach on stilts, many lived in mobile homes.The spring-break influx of college students that fuels neighboring Panama City Beachs economy bypasses Mexico Beach. High-rise condos and resort hotels have been kept at bay by local ordinances that restrict building heights to 48 feet.Were one of the most unique coastal communities left,Ž said Cathey, a Mexico Beach native. Were not commercialized. Were mom-and-pop businesses. Theres no corporate America here. Theres no Walmart. Theres no Pizza Hut.ŽBut the mayor, like many of his constituents, is concerned that could change. Many property owners in Mexico Beach are older retirees who may not want to rebuild. They and other owners might opt to sell rather than start over, Cathey said. And the new owners will probably want to build bigger.Families passing beach cottages along over three or four generations, thats over,Ž Cathey said. I think the pressure will come to want us to be something that we arent.ŽBill Shockey, 86, said he plans to sell his Mexico Beach home of more than 40 years after the hurricane battered it with storm surge and peeled off much of the roof. Earl Boyett of Bainbridge, Georgia, has owned a condo for vacations and weekend getaways in Mexico Beach for 16 years. Its still stand-ing, but with the side of the building facing the beach largely torn off.The 60-year-old contrac-tor isnt looking forward to rebuilding, and he is not sure what the four other owners who shared the building will want to do.Lots are going to be for sale now, point-blank,Ž Boyett said. I would sell, probably, before I build.ŽAfter falling in love with the small beach town during a decade of vacations, Hilary Davidson and her husband built a home two years ago and moved in permanently. Her stepson built the house to withstand a big storm, and it held up admirably during the hurricane. The only water that got in, she said, came up from the shower drain.She describes Mexico Beach as a place where her daughter can ride a bike without worrying about speeding traffic. When she returned home after the storm, Davidson slept with the windows and doors open.We dont want our com-munity to change,Ž she said. Im afraid a lot of the people who have been devastated are going to give up. There are a lot of older people who arent going to have the resources.ŽMany residents who also worked in Mexico Beach no longer have jobs. Tom Wood and his wife employed about a dozen people at the Driftwood Inn, which they opened more than 40 years ago.The hurricanes storm surge nearly demolished the side of the 24-room inn facing the beach. Three of the four rental homes Wood had across the highway got smashed. Wood said he will keep workers on the payroll as long as he can afford to. But he also has to refund thousands of dollars in deposit money from guests who had booked vacations through next summer.The plan right now is Ill build it back bigger and better than it was,Ž Wood said. But itll take me two years to rebuild.ŽCould rebuilding ruin beach town?In this Oct. 14 photo, Dena Frost salvages an unbroken clay pot from the wreckage of her pottery business in Mexico Beach, Fla.

BRIEFSFrom Page A3 In the here and now, if the governor or any agency needs resources or assistance for issues created by Hurricane Michael, the Florida House stands ready to help,Ž Oliva said.State lawmakers are set to return to Tallahassee shortly after the Nov. 6 election for an organizational session that includes seating new members and formally making Oliva and Galvano the leaders of their respective chambers.The 2019 legislative session will start in March. But lawmakers can take actions in the interim by holding special sessions or convening the Joint Legislative Budget Com-mission, which is made up of House and Senate members and can shift money to address needs.Galvano noted that lawmakers from the hur-ricane-impacted areas have been working with Scott, Cabinet members and st ate agencies, while Senate staff members in Tallahassee has been coordinating with district offices to ensure the continuation of con-stituent services.Also, Galvano said state budget reserves are available for Scott to direct toward the storm response.The governor has broad executive author-ity to utilize those reserves to allocate state resources needed to fur-ther a comprehensive response in the immediate aftermath of the storm,Ž Galvano said.In waiting, Oliva said he would also like to see if measures crafted by the House Select Committee on Hurricane Response and Prepared-ness after last years Hurricane Irma had any effect.It is my hope that many of those recommendations became a reality, but we will likely assess what went wrong and what went right after we all work to help our fellow Floridians put their lives back together,Ž Oliva said.Many of the post-Irma proposals were designed to address issues in the agriculture industry and more densely populated portions of the state, where major highways that serve as arteries for food, water and fuel also are primary evacuation routes.Money was set aside for a variety of purposes, such as $15 million for affordable housing in the Irma-battered Keys and $11.2 million for beach restoration.Lawmakers also approved, as part of a wider tax-relief package, a property-tax break for homeowners displaced by Irma. In addition, they approved tax breaks on fuel used to transport agricultural products after the storm; on agricultural fencing materials purchased for repairs after the storm; and for citrus packing houses that had their businesses interrupted by Irma or by the deadly disease citrus greening.Despite the changes, other storm-related pro-posals „ such as taking steps to strengthen the electric grid, create a strategic fuel-reserve task force, and use railtank cars to bring fuel into evacuation areas to avoid a repeat of runs on gas stations „ failed to advance during this years legislative session.Rep. Jeanette Nunez, a Miami Republican who chaired the select committee and is now the running mate of GOP gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis, said after the 2018 session that she hoped lawmakers would try to tackle some of the recommendations that failed to advance rather than grow complacent. ACTIONFrom Page A3 Real Life o utreach direc-tor Tim McCormack sees the show as a good fit for Real Life. It was a great fit for what we are as a church, and our location. Its not the Citrus Tower, but its a highly vis-ible location.Ž Peterson announced the change on Facebook a few weeks ago, but the roots of change go back to last years show at the Citrus Tower. Greg (Homan) and I talked about not doing it anymore,Ž Peterson says, noting that some of the children at the Tower were running around destroying the bushes.Ž Homan also says that the crowds were becoming an issue, and he was considering hiring security for crowd control, and that would have made the production a lot more expensive. This is not a decision I made lightly,Ž Homan says. Homan describes his seven years with the show as a journey. He tried to make each show a little bigger, a little different, a little better than the last. Yet he acknowledges that he was was getting an increasing number of complaints that the show was the same, along with a few complaints about the choices of music. Homan and Peterson both say that space was a major problem at the Tower. The show was basically in the middle of a parking lot, and not even a big parking lot. It was so limited,Ž Homan says. I reached my limit. I wanted to take the show to the next level, but it was way out of my league. I approached Real Life. The main reason I did it is I wanted it (the show) to go bigger and better. If Id had any doubts that Real Life would not disappoint me, I wouldnt have gone there.Ž Speaking of the shows, Peterson says Its a happy event. People would come and bring their blankets. Theyre going to do it again.Ž The Real Life show is set to light up on December 1. TOWERFrom Page A3The Associated PressBOISE, Idaho „ A top Idaho wildlife official has resigned amid outrage over a photo of him posing with a baboon family he killed during a hunting trip Africa, ending days of turmoil for a state where big game hunt-ing is popular but critics said the photo was seen as unsportsmanlike by hunt-ing enthusiasts. Idaho Gov. C.L. ButchŽ Otter said in a statement that he asked for and accepted Blake Fisch-ers resignation on Monday, three days after the Idaho Statesman newspaper pub-lished the first report about a photo of Fischer smiling with four dead baboons propped in front of him.The photo and others of Fischer and his wife shoot-ing at least 14 animals in Namibia were accompanied by descriptions in an email that Fischer sent to more than 100 recipients. Fischer has said he did nothing illegal, unethical or immoral.He didnt apologize for killing the baboons but said in his resignation to Otter that he recently made some poor judgments that resulted in sharing photos of a hunt in which I did not display an appropri-ate level of sportsmanship and respect for the animals I harvested.Ž O cial resigns after killing baboon family Hayes said by doing so, merchants would be able to better communicate to the council what they like or dont like about it and therefore, would be able to make more informed comments about it.A city spokeswoman said the final reading for the entertainment district will be placed on the agenda for a future meeting, but that the date has yet to be determined.The ordinance, if approved, would allow outdoor consumption of alcoholic beverages in the district seven days a week.The idea behind the entertainment district is that people would be allowed to carry a drink with them from one partici-pating business to the next and outside areas within the districts boundaries.Businesses that serve alcohol must be registered with the city and patrons could only carry drinks on the street in plastic cups not to exceed 16 ounces. The cups must contain markings to identify the business. Additionally, only one drink per person would be allowed at any given time and no drinks can be purchased or consumed between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m.The measure got tentative council approval in September, when the board voted 5-2 to move it to a final vote. Councilwoman Laurie Tillett and Council-man Cal Rolfson cast the dissenting votes.On Tuesday, council members Marc Crail and Cathy Hoechst were absent.

He refused to name the people that were with him. He stated that he if he told, he would be the next one to be shot.ŽIt was even difficult to tell, at first, who the victim was. He was taken to Flor-ida Hospital Waterman where he died. Deputies using an electronic identi-fication system identified him as Jose Martinez. That turned out to be an alias.Deputies did find a 2008 BMW parked near a wooden fence that had been hit by gunfire. Inside the car, they found Castil-los drivers license. They also found one walkietalkie in the car. The car was registered to another person. A cellphone had been dropped between the fence and the car.Information on the phone was removed remotely, according to the affidavitOn Sept. 3, Jones was able to provide the names of three other witnesses who were at the scene.Investigators got another break on Sept. 5, when a concerned citi-zenŽ told them that Devitt confessed that he had shot somebody.ŽThat same tipster reportedly overheard a conversation with people at Devitts house about a Mexican screaming, Stop shooting!ŽDevitt also reportedly confided to the tipster that he fetched the gun from the woods, and he had to do it or be killed.ŽA search warrant turned up the matching walkie-talkie at Devitts house.On Oct. 1, several witnesses told deputies that Devitt was threatening them if they talked to investigators.On that same day, Apopka police called to say that a man they had arrested had information about the slaying. Timothy Johnson said Devitt was telling him that GhostŽ was getting crazyŽ over money that Devitt owed him and that he will have get him before he gets me.ŽOn Oct. 9, two women came forward to say that they had driven Devitt to the crime scene the night of the shooting.They saw a vehicle in the driveway with the lights on. Devitt got out of the back seat with a revolver. About that time, a dark car drove up. The first vehicles lights went out, then they saw muzzle flashes and heard six gunshots. The headlights of the first vehicle came back on and Devitt got back in their car and said, I shot that guy in the face.ŽThey said Devitt told them to drive to a place he called The CompoundŽ in the 31000 block of Toll-gate Trail, also in Sorrento, where he got rid of the gun.On Sept. 14, a woman came forward to say that she read a text on her husbands phone from someone named PatrickŽ or StephanŽ saying Devitt had to kill the plugŽ before the plugŽ killed him. PlugŽ is slang for drug supplier. The womans husband had bailed Devitt out of jail on Sept. 9.At that time, detectives had not released any infor-mation to the public about Devitt owing any drug money.In the days immediately following the homicide the defendant made statements to three witnesses that he had shot someone. Three witnesses observed the defendant in possession of a .22 caliber revolver,Ž the arrest affi-davit states.It cited other witness statements saying the shooter walked onto the property through a wooded area behind the property, and the women who took him to the scene, who saw the gun, and saw him dis-pose of it.When he got in the vehicle immediately following the shooting, the defendant admittedƒ he shot someone.Ž CHARGEDFrom Page A3Pedestrians walk down a sidewalk in downtown Mount Dora on March 5, 2018.

First, it must level an empty bank building that will become the site of the store. Leesburg has already approved the demolition permit and is in the pro-cess of reviewing plans for the new building. Well probably have the old building torn down by the end of the year,Ž said Britt Powell, construction manager for Richardson Turner Construction Co., in Knoxville, Tenn. Starbucks itself has been around for a long time, of course. The first store opened in 1971. Now, there are 28,000 in 77 markets across the world, includ-ing Eustis, Clermont, Mount Dora and The Villages. For Leesburg city com-missioners, not having a shop has been a source of frustration. Low-priced housing and longtime stagnant growth made Leesburg only a pass-throughŽ city to get from one end of the county to the other. That was already changing last year when the city decided to sell hundreds of acres of vacant land to The Villages near Floridas Turnpike along County Road 470. A rebirth of downtown, booming Beacon College, Marriott Hotel plans and other developments are sure to bring more customers to the bustling barristas, demanding everything from espresso shots to drinks that look more like ice cream than coffee. Leesburg has always had a love affair with new food chains. When Steak and Shake was preparing to open several years ago, retirees waited in a line of lawn chairs that stretched around the building. Those days may be gone forever, but if not, it would be nice to have a cup of coffee while waiting.

Rick Scott had been criticizing phone companies over what he called a slow restoration of service.Sitting outside in the sweltering heat in the Panama City area as she fanned herself with a fly-swatter, Christy Tanksley said the sudden improve-ment in cell service was a huge relief.A lot of people didnt even know we had evacu-ated and come back,Ž said Tanksley, whose phone runs off the Verizon network.I turned my phone on this morning and it started going crazy,Ž she said. There were all kinds of messages, Facebook notifications, emails and emergency alerts.Ž MICHAELFrom Page A1The Sheriffs Office is also asking for fuel, in the form of five-gallon plastic gas containers and Sterno cooking fuel cans.

PAGE 7 | Wednesday, October 17, 2018 A7The crown prince told me that he has already started, and will rapidly expand, a full and complete investigation into this matter. Answers will be forthcoming shortly,Ž Trump said in a tweet.U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo traveled to Saudi Arabia to talk to King Salman and the 33-year-old crown prince about the fate of the jour-nalist who wrote critically about the Saudis for the Washington Post.While it was all smiles and handshakes in Riyadh, one prominent Republican senator said he believed that the crown prince, widely known as MBS, had Khashoggi murdered.Ž This guy has got to go,Ž said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, speaking on Fox television. Saudi Arabia, if youre listening, there are a lot of good people you can choose, but MBS has tainted your coun-try and tainted himself.ŽSaudi officials have called Turkish allegations that a team of 15 Saudi agents killed Khashoggi baseless,Ž but U.S. media reports suggested that the kingdom may acknowledge the writer was killed at the consulate, perhaps as part of a botched interrogation.The close U.S. ally is ruled entirely by the Al Saud monarchy, and all major decisions in the ultracon-servative kingdom are made by the royal family.Washington Post Publisher and CEO Fred Ryan said the Saudi govern-ment owes the Khashoggi family and the world a full and honest explanation of everything that happened to him,Ž noting that Tues-day marked two weeks since the disappearance of the 59-year-old journalist.The Saudi govern-ment can no longer remain silent, and it is essential that our own government and others push harder for the truth,Ž Ryan added.The high-level Turkish official told the AP that police found certain evidenceŽ of Khashoggis slaying at the consulate, without elaborating. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.Police planned a second search at the Saudi consul generals home, as well as some of the countrys dip-lomatic vehicles, Turkeys Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said. Leaked surveillance video show diplomatic cars traveled to the consul generals home shortly after Khashoggi went into the consulate.Consul General Moham-med al-Otaibi left Turkey Tuesday afternoon, state media reported, just as police began putting up barricades around his official residence. Saudi Arabia did not immediately acknowledge he had left or offer a reason for his departure.Earlier in the day, U.N. human rights chief Michelle Bachelet said the inviolability or immunityŽ of people or premises granted under the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations should be waived immediately.Ž That convention covers diplo-matic immunity, as well as the idea that embassies and consulates sit on foreign soil in their host countries.Given there seems to be clear evidence that Mr. Khashoggi entered the consulate and has never been seen since, the onus is on the Saudi authorities to reveal what happened to him,Ž Bachelet said.Turkey had wanted to search the consulate for days. Permission apparently came after a late Sunday night call between King Salman and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Certain areas of the consulate were to remain off-limits, although officials would be able to inspect surveillance cameras, Turkish media reported.Erdogan told journalists Tuesday that police sought traces of toxicŽ materials and suggested parts of the consulate had been recently painted, without elaborating.In Riyadh, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir greeted Pompeo at the air-port. The former CIA chief didnt make any remarks to the media.Soon after, Pompeo arrived at a royal palace, where he thanked King Salman for accepting my visit on behalf of President TrumpŽ before the two went into a closed-door meeting. Pompeo then met a smiling Prince Mohammed, the heir apparent to the throne of the worlds largest oil exporter.We are strong and old allies,Ž the prince told Pompeo. We face our challenges together „ the past, the day of, tomorrow.ŽPompeo was to have a dinner Tuesday night with Prince Mohammed and was expected to fly to Turkey on Wednesday.Trump previously warned of severe punish-mentŽ for the kingdom if it was found to be involved in Khashoggis disappearance, which has spooked investors.Trumps warning drew an angry response Sunday from Saudi Arabia and its state-linked media, includ-ing a suggestion that Riyadh could wield its oil produc-tion as a weapon. The U.S. president has been after King Salman and OPEC to boost production to drive down high oil prices, caused in part by the coming re-imposition of oil sanctions on Iran. TURKEYFrom Page A1


A8 Wednesday, October 17, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comBy Laurie KellmanThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ She took the DNA test President Donald Trump urged, and he mocked her for it. Now Sen. Elizabeth Warren is taking a page from Trumps playbook, hitting back in personal terms and calling him creepyŽ on Twitter.When it comes to challenging the man who redefined the rules of American political combat, the Massachusetts Demo-crat, whos weighing a 2020 presidential run, is often doing it Trumps way.And like Trump, shes getting blowback: Jokes. Objections. And grumblings from her own political party about timing, with midterm elections three weeks away.Trumps mockery of Warrens claim of Native American ancestry „ hes called her PocahontasŽ and said he would offer to pay $1 million to charity if she took a DNA test „ clearly got into her head.In what was a longplanned and heavily produced rollout, Warren on Monday released the results of a DNA test that shows she has Native American ancestry between six and 10 generations ago. That would make her between 1/ 64th and 1/1024th Native American, according to The Boston Globe.Warren has acknowledged listing her Native American heritage on a directory for years, but she and those who hired her have denied that her background was a factor in advancing her career.The accusation that the Oklahoma native claimed the ethnic background to get ahead could be politi-cally potent with the partys black and Hispanic supporters. Among Warrens possible 2020 competitors are former Vice President Joe Biden and at least four of Warrens fellow Demo-cratic senators: Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Bernie Sanders of Vermont.Whats unclear is whether Warrens DNA gambit will allow her to put the controversy in the past, or whether it endures in jokes and political lore.The presidents initial reaction to Warrens DNA test: Who cares?Ž He also denied making the million-dollar donation offer.Warren promptly tweeted her charity of choice: The National Indig-enous Womens Resource Center. Asked about the promise to donate to Warrens char-ity of choice, Trump said: Ill only do it if I can test her personally. That will not be something I enjoy doing, either.ŽDNA tests are typically done using a sample swabbed from the inside of a persons cheek.We all know why @ realDonaldTrump makes creepy physical threats about me, right? Hes scared. Hes trying to do what he always does to women who scare him: call us names, attack us person-ally, shrink us down to feel better about himself. It may soothe his ego but it wont work,Ž Warren tweeted.The creepyŽ description carries extra meaning during the nations reckon-ing with sexual misconduct in the #MeToo era. More than a dozen women have accused him of sexual mis-conduct „ all liars, Trump says.The creepyŽ tweet was just one of more than two dozen tweets on Warrens campaign account Monday, covering Trump and getting behind Democrats running in the Nov. 6 elections. Trump clearly noticed.He started Tuesday with three tweets claim-ing Warrens DNA test is bogusŽ and that she perpetrated a scam and a lie.ŽShe fired back at Trump within minutes: Youve lost a step, and in 21 days, youre going to lose Congress.ŽWarren said in her video that her ancestry is a matter of family folklore and that she understands that only tribes determine tribal citizenship.That wasnt enough for Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr.Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inap-propriate and wrong,Ž he said Monday. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.ŽNative Americans also have objected to Trumps PocahontasŽ nickname for Warren.Argue the substance all you want, but why 22 days before a crucial election where we MUST win house and senate to save America, why did @SenWarren have to do her announcement now? Why cant Dems ever stay focused???Ž tweeted Jim Messina, former Presi-dent Barack Obamas 2012 campaign manager.Warren is in the midst of her own Senate reelection campaign, as well as a midterm blitz to help other Democrats nationwide win their races. While she has not yet campaigned for Democrats in neighboring New Hampshire, she was among the first elected officials to call gubernatorial candidate Molly Kelly on the night of her primary election victory.Warren also has designated staff to help candidates in the states with early presidential primaries, including former staff-ers now working for state parties in New Hamp-shire and South Carolina. Those are among the first states to vote in the presidential primaries beginning in 15 months.The Warren DNA matter quickly became part of political culture.Utah Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch, 84, tweeted a photo of himself looking at his phone, purportedly at his own DNA test results showing he has a small fraction of T-RexŽ ancestry.The rest: other dino-saurs,Ž the tweet reads.Hashtags abounded, including #WarrenIsNotCherokee and #WarrenSoWhite.Trumps initial shrug got wide play on the late night comedy shows.Who cares? You care! This is the thing youve been obsessed about for years,Ž Trevor Noah said on The Daily Show.Ž Deploying an obscenity, he added: Its like Kool-Aid man saying, I dont actually care about Kool-Aid.ŽSen.

PAGE 9 | Wednesday, October 17, 2018 A9By Abdi Guled and Cara AnnaThe Associated PressNAIROBI, Kenya „ The U.S. military on Tuesday announced its deadliest air-strike against the al-Shabab extremist group in Somalia in nearly a year, killing about 60 fighters.The U.S. Africa Com-mand said Fridays airstrike occurred near the al-Sha-bab-controlled community of Harardere in Mudug province in the central part of the country. According to its assessment no civil-ians were injured or killed, the statement said.It was the largest U.S. airstrike since one on Nov. 21, 2017, killed about 100 al-Shabab fighters. The statement gave no further details about what was targeted, and a U.S. Africa Command spokesman said it was not a camp. The U.S. military has carried out more than two dozen airstrikes, includ-ing drone strikes, this year against the al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab, the deadliest Islamic extremist group in sub-Saharan Africa.Somalia on Sunday marked the first anniversary of al-Shababs deadliest attack, a truck bombing in Mogadishu that killed well over 500 people. The U.S. Africa Command spokesman said the airstrike had no link to the anniversary.The United States, which also has targeted a small number of fighters linked to the Islamic State group in northern Somalia, has increased its military presence in the long-chaotic Horn of Africa nation since early 2017 to about 500 personnel after President Donald Trump approved expanded mili-tary operations.Al-Shabab, which seeks to establish an Islamic state in Somalia, continues to hold parts of the countrys south and central regions after being chased out of Mogadishu several years ago. The group, estimated at several thousands of fighters, still carries out deadly attacks against high-profile targets such as hotels and checkpoints in the capital and other cities. It also remains a threat in parts of neighboring Kenya.While some observers have questioned the effectiveness of airstrikes by the U.S. and Kenya and raised concerns about civilians being killed, the U.S. military maintains that they reduce al-Sha-babs ability to plot future attacks, disrupt its leader-ship networks and degrade its freedom of maneuver within the region.ŽSomali forces in the next few years are expected to take over responsibility for the countrys security from an African Union peacekeeping force, which already has started withdrawing hundreds of personnel. US airstrike in Somalia kills about 60 al-Shabab ghters By Carla K. JohnsonThe Associated PressSEATTLE „ Obesity surgery may dramati-cally lower the danger of heart attacks and strokes in patients with diabetes, new research suggests, reinforcing evidence that benefits extend beyond weight loss.The study tracked about 20,000 severely obese patients with Type 2 diabetes. Those who had weight loss surgery had a 40 percent lower chance of developing a heart attack or stroke in the five years follow-ing surgery compared to those who got usual care with diabetes medicines or insulin.For every 1,000 patients in the study who had surgery there were roughly 20 heart attacks or strokes compared to 40 such events per 1,000 who got regular care.More than 30 million Americans have diabetes, mostly Type 2 where the body loses the ability to produce or use insulin to turn food into energy.Other research has shown obesity surgery can reverse and even prevent diabetes. Taken together, it means doctors should discuss weight loss surgery more often, said study co-author Dr. David Arterburn of Kaiser Per-manente Washington Health Research Insti-tute in Seattle.Doctors usually mention insulin and pills, but its not always brought up that weight loss surgery is another available treatment option,Ž Arterburn said.Researchers analyzed records from four U.S. health care systems: HealthPartners in Minnesota and Kaiser Permanente in Washington state, Northern California and Southern California. Results were published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association.The study cant prove cause and effect because patients werent randomly assigned to get surgery. The researchers tried to match patients for gender, age, blood sugar levels and other factors. But other things they didnt account for could have contributed to the surgery patients better results.Everyone in the study had a BMI, or body mass index, of at least 35. For instance, someone who is 5-foot-8-inches and weighs 230 pounds has a BMI of 35.Of the more than 5,300 who had surgery, most had gastric bypass, the most common type of stomach-shrinking oper-ation. Some had gastric sleeve or gastric band procedures. The rest, nearly 15,000 people, had usual care.Obesity surgery can cost $20,000 to $25,000. Insurers are increasingly covering it, but some impose strict limits.The new findings sug-gest insurance coverage should be expanded for the right patients, Dr. Sayeed Ikramuddin of the University of Minnesota wrote in an accompanying editorial.Surgery is thought to help by affecting hormones, gut bacteria and other substances that affect how the body han-dles insulin and blood sugar. Weight loss with-out surgery also helps, but is difficult for many people to achieve.Most weight loss surgery today is done through small incisions. The dangers are similar to other surgeries, including a small chance of life-threatening com-plications, and some people need to have their surgeries repeated.Surgery may lower heart attack danger in diabeticsNew research suggests obesity surgery could dramatically lower the danger of heart attacks and strokes in patients with diabetes.

PAGE 11 | Wednesday, October 17, 2018 A11By Sonia Perez D.The Associated PressESQUIPULAS, Guatemala „ U.S. President Donald Trump threatened Tuesday to cut aid to Honduras if it doesnt stop a caravan of some 2,000 migrants, even as they resumed their northward trek through Guatemala with hopes of reaching the U.S. border.Despite having walked the entire previous day, with swollen, blistered and aching feet, the group was up shortly after sun-rise after sleeping on the ground in their clothes.Dozens attended Mass at the Basilica in the city of Esquipulas, just across the border from Honduras and about 90 miles east of Guatemala City, to receive a blessing, before continuing the journey escorted by Guatemalan police.The groups numbers have snowballed since some 160 migrants departed Friday from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, with many people joining spontaneously carrying just a few belongings. A Guatemalan priest estimated that more than 2,000 had been fed at three shelters run by the Roman Catholic Church.Three weeks before midterm elections in the United States, the caravan elicited a tough response from Trump.The United States has strongly informed the President of Honduras that if the large Caravan of people heading to the U.S. is not stopped and brought back to Hondu-ras, no more money or aid will be given to Honduras, effective immediately,Ž Trump tweeted.However, the Central American nations ability to do anything at this point appeared limited as the migrants had already crossed into Guatemala on Monday, twice pushing past outnumbered police sent to stop them „ first at the border and then at a roadblock out-side Esquipulas.Trump did not follow through on a similar threat to the Central American nation in April over an earlier caravan, which eventually petered out.There was no immediate public response from the Honduran govern-ment. In late September, in a speech at the U.N. General Assembly, President Juan Orlando Hernandez defended migrants, criticizing their treatment in detention centers and the separation of children from their families „ without explicitly naming the United States.Migration is a human right,Ž Hernandez said. For centuries human beings have moved and emigrated and have con-tributed to the social and economic development of the nations that have taken them in, in search of better opportunities. We in Honduras and the Central American region are not an exception.ŽMeanwhile, Mexicos immigration authority sent out a fresh warning late Monday that only those who meet entry requirements would be allowed into the country and each migrant would have to satisfy Mexican migration agents. Hondurans need visas to visit Mexico in most cases.Still, it remains unclear if Mexico and other governments in the region „ many of whose own people are migrants „ would have the political will to physically halt the determined bordercrossers, who are fleeing widespread poverty and violence in one of the worlds most murderous countries.In Honduras there are no jobs, and the jobs that do exist arent enough to live on,Ž said Jose Francisco Hernandez, a 32-year-old from Copan state in western Honduras. We cant go to the city because it is full of gang members, and that is hurting us. We decided to migrate from the coun-try to see if we can find a better life.ŽCarlos Reyes, 20, said he was attacked a week ago for being gay and dress-ing in womens clothing.Some men were going to kill me.... They wanted to kill me for who I am,Ž Reyes said.The migrants hope that traveling en masse affords them protection from rob-bery, assault and other dangers that plague the journey north.Many carried only a few belongings in back-packs and bottles of water. Some pushed strollers or carried toddlers on their shoulders.On Monday night they bedded down wherever they could, some on the grass in a church parking lot and others on the floors of a migrant shelter and a sports hall.Few carried food and some Esquipulas residents began to organize to help feed them. Some migrants asked for money, while others were handed bread as they passed a local bakery.Last week, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence urged leaders in Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala to persuade their citizens to stay home and avoid the long, risky journey to the United States.On Tuesday, Pence tweeted that he had spoken with Hernandez, the Honduran president. Delivered strong mes-sage from @POTUS: no more aid if caravan is not stopped. Told him U.S. will not tolerate this blatant disregard for our border & sovereignty.ŽBut the threat of ending aid to an unpopu-lar government seemed unlikely to dissuade the migrants, some of whom expressed displeasure with Hernandez.Gabriela Natareno, 27, who was traveling with her 16-year-old cousin, said her president is to blame for continued migration by desperate Hondurans.He keeps the country mired in poverty and cor-ruption,Ž she said.Trump warns Honduras over migrant caravanHonduran migrants sleep at an improvised shelter Monday in Esquipulas, Guatemala.

The Associated Press I see skies of blue and clouds of white. The bright blessed days, the dark sacred nights;. And I think to myself, what a wonderful world.Ž Louis Armstrong, What a Wonderful WorldŽChanging our financial habits is like implementing an alteration in any other part of our lives. Its not easy. Take Rich Roll, for example. Roll is a Stanford grad with a law degree from Cornell. He successfully practiced corporate entertainment law but found his personal life in disarray. By age 31, he had undergone alcohol rehab. By age 40, he had stopped drinking but was 50 pounds of double cheeseburgers north of the 160 pounds he had carried as a competitive swimmer at Stanford. On his 40th birthday, he became winded walking up a flight of stairs. The next day, he embarked on a lifestyle journey that included changing to a plant-based diet and getting lots of exercise. In one of Rolls books, he describes the brief but terrible torture of giving up coffee, dairy, meat and fish on the same day. Now thats a lifestyle change! Two years after buying his first racing bicycle, he competed and placed in an ultra-endurance contest. Many more competitions involving biking, swimming and running followed. Six years ago, his memoir became a No. 1 bestseller. It was entitled, Finding Ultra: Rejecting Middle Age, Becoming One of the Worlds Fittest Men, and Discovering Myself.Ž His podcast, which followed a year later, is consistently ranked among the iTunes Top 10. Roll and his wife, July Piatt, published a bestselling cookbook in 2014. Whats the economic connection? Restructuring our financial habits can be as challenging and difficult as changing our eating and exercise patterns. Financial habits are very similar to dietary habits. Without really knowing how it happens, we immerse ourselves in daily and weekly spending and money rituals, not all of which are good for us. Many of us adopt the financial methods our parents used or sometimes we simply spend to provide ourselves with temporary euphoria or stress relief. It is truly comparable to eating patterns influenced by tension and other factors. I know someone who, upon awakening each morning, walks for exercise. Why roll out of bed and hit the street then? Shes a busy person and no matter what else happens that day, shes got her exercise accomplished. Its like rewarding yourself first on payday. The day we get paid, we put aside what weve budgeted for saving and investing, and then we live on the rest. If we dont do it on payday, we may not get to it. Margaret R.

Allen couldnt have asked for a better way to spend, invest and donate the billions he reaped from co-founding Microsoft with childhood friend Bill Gates.Allen used the fortune he made from Microsoft „ whose Windows operating system is found on most of the worlds desktop computers „ to invest in other ambitions, from tackling climate change and advanc-ing brain research to finding innovative solutions to solve some of the worlds biggest challenges.If it has the potential to do good, then we should do it,Ž Gates quoted his friend as saying.Allen died Monday in Seat-tle from complications of non-Hodgkins lymphoma, according to his company Vulcan Inc. He was 65. Just two weeks ago, Allen, who owned the NFLs Seattle Seahawks and the NBAs Portland Trail Blazers, had announced that the same cancer he had in 2009 had returned.Gates, who met Allen at a private school in Seattle, said he was heartbroken to have lost one of his oldest and dearest friends.ŽPersonal computing would not have existed without him,Ž Gates said in a statement, adding that Allens second actŽ as a philanthropist was focused on improving peoples lives and strengthening communities in Seattle and around the world.ŽOver his lifetime, Allen gave more than $2 billion to efforts aimed at improving education, science, technology, conser-vation and communities.Those fortunate to achieve great wealth should put it to work for the good of human-ity,Ž Allen wrote several years ago, when he announced that he was giving the bulk of his fortune to charity. He said that pledge reminds us all that our net worth is ultimately defined not by dollars but rather by how well we serve others.ŽAllen, who played guitar, built a g leaming pop culture museum in his hometown to showcase his love of rock n roll, and funded underwater expeditions that made important shipwreck discov-eries, including a U.S. aircraft carrier lost during World War II.Allens influence is firmly imprinted on the cultural landscape of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest, from the bright metallic Museum of Pop Culture designed by architect Frank Gehry to the computer science center at the University of Washington that bears his name.Yet in a sense, Allen also lived up to the moniker once bestowed on him by Wired Magazine: The Accidental Zillionaire.Ž He was a programmer who coined Microsofts name and made important contributions to its early success, yet was overshadowed by his partners acerbic intellect and cutthroat business sense.At the companys founding, for instance, Allen let Gates talk him into taking the short end of a 60-40 owner-ship split. A few years later, he settled for an even smaller share, 36 percent, at Gates insistence. Reflecting on that moment In his memoir, Allen concluded that he might have haggled more, but realized that my heart wasnt in it. So I agreed.ŽAllen was born in Seattle. After graduating from the citys private Lakeside School, where he met Gates, Allen spent two years at Washington State University. The two friends both dropped out of college to pursue the future they envisioned: A world with a computer in every home.There would be no Micro-soft as we know it without Paul Allen,Ž said longtime technology analyst Rob Enderle, who also consulted for Allen.Allen and Gates founded Microsoft in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and their first product was a computer lan-guage for the Altair hobby-kit personal computer, giving hobbyists a basic way to pro-gram and operate the machine.After Gates and Allen found some success selling their programming language, MS-Basic, the Seattle natives moved their business in 1979 to Bellevue, Washington, not far from its eventual home in Redmond.Microsofts big break came in 1980, when IBM Corp. decided to move into personal computers and asked Microsoft to provide the operating system.Gates and Allen agreed, even though they didnt have one to offer. To meet IBMs needs, they spent $50,000 to buy an operating system called QDOS from another startup in Seattle „ without, of course, letting on that they had IBM lined up as a customer. Even-tually, the product refined by Microsoft became the core of IBM PCs and their clo nes, catapulting Microsoft into its dominant position in the PC industry.The first versions of two classic Microsoft products, Microsoft Word and the Windows operating system, were released in 1983. By 1991, Microsofts operating systems were used by 93 per-cent of the worlds personal computers.

PAGE 13 | Wednesday, October 17, 2018 A13 Saudi Arabia, so far, has tried bluster and bullying to silence the questions about journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who disappeared in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul two weeks ago Tuesday. On Sunday, a regime statement threatened to respond with a larger actionŽ to any sanction stemming from the case; Saudi-owned media floated such steps as cutting back oil production, buying arms from Russia and holding back counterterrorism intelligence. On Monday, King Salman told President Donald Trump in a phone call that he denies any knowledge of what took place,Ž according to Trump, who added it sounded to me like maybe it could have been rogue killers.Ž That preposterous suggestion may have anticipated a change in the Saudi story; CNN reported that the regime was preparing to admit that Khashoggi died in an interrogation gone wrong. If so, there must be consequences not just for those who supposedly erred in killing the journalist but also for whomever ordered the illegal operation in the first place. U.S. intelligence intercepts suggest the order came from Mohammed bin Salman, the reckless crown prince whose excesses had been criticized by Khashoggi in columns for The Washington Post. We expect to learn more soon: Whatever happened to Khashoggi appears to have been recorded on video or audiotape. In the meantime, its worth considering just how much the United States might have to lose if its relationship with Saudi Arabia ruptured. What about that oil, and the $110 billion in arms purchases Trump keeps talking about? What about the war on terrorism? Start with the oil. Saudi Arabia, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, supplied 9 percent of U.S. petroleum imports in 2017, or about 960,000 barrels a day. But thanks to the shale revolution, the United States is essentially energy independent: It, not Saudi Arabia, is now the worlds largest crude-oil producer. Last year, U.S. daily oil exports averaged 6.38 million barrels, or nearly seven times the Saudi imports. If the Saudis cut back production or boycotted the United States, they could temporarily drive up prices, but the beneficiaries would be U.S. shale companies, which over time would fill the gap and deal a devastating blow to the Saudi oil industry. As for arms sales, someone needs to brief Trump on the actual results of the promises made to him when he visited Riyadh last year. As Bruce Riedel of the Brookings Institution sums it up, The Saudis have not concluded a single major arms deal with Washington on Trumps watch.Ž Moreover, an end to supplies of U.S. spare parts and technical support, something Russia cannot provide, would quickly ground the Saudi air force. That would have the welcome effect of ending a bloody bombing campaign in Yemen that a U.N. investigation concluded was probably responsible for war crimes. Saudi Arabia does supply the United States with counterterrorism intelligence. But as Andrew Miller of the Project on Middle East Democracy points out, stopping it would be a colossal error . when theres already a strong perception in Congress and with Americans that Saudi Arabia has fueled extremism.Ž Miller notes that a law passed by Congress in 2016 opens the way for civil suits against the Saudi government for any terrorist acts it enables. The reality is that Saudi Arabia, which, as Trump himself has crudely pointed out, would not survive without U.S. security support, has everything to lose from a break in relations, while the United States no longer needs the kingdom as much as it once did. Trump has overvalued the relationship and encouraged Saudi leaders to believe they can behave recklessly and even criminally without consequence. Whatever the outcome of the Khashoggi case, a fundamental reshaping of the relationship mandated by Congress, if necessary is imperative.ANOTHER OPINIONWho needs Saudi Arabia? ANOTHER OPINION OPINIONSteve Skaggs | Publisher Tom McNiff | Executive Editor Whitney Lehnecker | Digital Editor, Lifestyles Editor Tom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250tom.mcniff@dailycommercial.comIf things dont change soon, were toast. We saw it last week when Hurricane Michael wiped out entire communities in Florida, and last month when Florence wreaked havoc in the Carolinas. Weve seen it on Long Island, where we will face even worse flooding than the destruction from superstorm Sandy. The Earth is getting hotter, and more intense storms are only one result. If we dont stop the warming, the changes will be irreversible. Hundreds of millions of people are at risk, with damages in the trillions of dollars. Among the problems: severe coastline flooding, more intense droughts and worsening wildfires; declining fish catches and crop yields; mass migrations of people, especially from the tropics; and the collapse of ice sheets in Antarctica and Greenland, accelerating sea level rise. That scenario was described in detail by the UNs panel on climate change, in a report it dropped as Michael was forming. The panel, the worlds definitive source on climate science, is by nature conservative. Its 91 scientists from 40 countries analyzed more than 6,000 studies. In the Paris pact of 2015, countries pledged to reduce greenhouse gases enough to limit the rise in temperature above preindustrial levels to 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit. The panel analyzed a lower threshold of 2.7 degrees, and found that beyond that number, dire changes start to cascade. Given the current lack of progress, the UN says well see those changes by 2040, way earlier than previously forecast. Put the urgency in perspective: An infant born today will graduate college around then. The panel was direct in its prescription: Transform the worlds energy system, period. Nothing else will work. That means a 40 to 50 percent reduction in emissions by 2030, and a carbon-neutral world by 2050. It means more solar and wind energy. It means an aggressive push toward electric cars. It means a tax on carbon emissions. It means planting more trees, and inventing ways to remove greenhouse gases from the air. And it means the virtual elimination of burning coal „ the easiest way to get carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere is to never put it there. This calls for leadership that grasps the threat and has the courage to take tough steps. But President Donald Trump is steering us toward a climate disaster. His administration has moved to weaken limits on power plant emissions and roll back fuel efficiency standards. He plans to remove the United States from the Paris agreement. And he wants to burn more of what he calls clean, beautiful coal.Ž This recklessness isnt like Nero fiddling as Rome burns. This is Nero pumping gasoline onto the flames. Trump expressed skepticism about the report while saying he would look at it. But his representatives had to approve the panels conclusions, and did. His Pentagon says climate change is a national security issue. His National Highway Traffic Safety Administration projects a 7-degree rise in global temperatures by 2100. Even Exxon Mobil Corp. has announced its support for a carbon tax. Trump isnt alone in his dereliction. Big emitters like China and India arent doing their share. But we need to lead. We wont be insulated from the changes. But we can help stave them off. The UN report is a warning. Monster storms are the alarm: The window is short. The potential for destr uction is huge. We must act. Now. From the Editorial Board at Newsday.ANOTHER OPINIONThe environmental sirens are sounding to save the planet It took nearly two years, but President Donald Trump has finally said something unflattering about Secretary of Defense James Mattis. Rumors of the presidents unhappiness with Mattis date back several months, yet only last weekend did Trump himself express any, telling 60 MinutesŽ that he thinks the retired four-star Marine general is sort of a Democrat.Ž In another era, when retired generals gravitated toward the center, being called a Democrat by a Republican president would be worth its weight in Sunday talk-show invitations. In Trumps Washington, the remark is the kiss of death. So its worth asking why Trump thinks his secretary of defense is on the other team. From the beginning of Trumps presidency, much of Washington saw Mattis as a kind of guardrail. When the Trump transition team floated his name in November 2016, there was a palpable sense of relief at a national security forum I was then attending. Democratic and Republican lawmakers praised the pick. It was easy to see why. Mattis is a consummate military professional. In 2016, when so many former senior national security officials chose sides, his politics remained inscrutable. Mattis let it be known that he thought Iran still needed to be deterred and that America should not fight wars unless the American people were willing to commit the resources needed to win them. He had devoted a lot of his time to studying the transition of soldiers to civilian life, and believed that national service should not be a partisan matter. So its not surprising that Mattis sought to build a bipartisan team at the Pentagon. The most obvious example was his courting of Michele Flournoy, who almost certainly would have been Hillary Clintons secretary of defense, to be his deputy. In the end Flournoy declined „ but Trump loyalists noticed the courtship. As one White House official told me at the time, Trump did not understand why Mattis would want to bring in someone so close to Clinton. Mattis clashed with the White House on other key posts as well. In some cases he wanted to bring in Republican defense policy hands who had signed letters in 2016 denouncing Trump. But the White House made it clear that never TrumpersŽ had no place in the administration. Another factor in Trumps mistrust of Mattis is policy. Trump campaigned against the Iran nuclear deal even before he became president. Yet Mattis counseled against withdrawal, supporting the strategy of then-National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster to fix the agreement, not abandon it. Mattiss reputation as one of the adults in the room is well known: He has been a key voice calming allies in NATO. He managed to soften Trumps initial ban on transgender Americans serving in the military. He was one of the people who persuaded Trump to embrace a strategy of keeping troops in Afghanistan to fight for the elected government in Kabul. It is not unusual for a president and members of his Cabinet to have differences of opinion. At times, however, Mattis has seemed like he was managing the president as much as the Pentagon. In Bob Woodwards latest book, for example, he writes that Mattis did not present Trump with robust options for a military strike on Syria in 2017, after the U.S. had concluded that the regime had ordered a chemical weapons attack. Mattis and the Pentagon wanted to keep the attack as narrow as possible,Ž Woodward writes. After the book came out, Mattis denied ever questioning Trumps sanity and disputed other details as well. At the time, Trump made a show of saying how much he appreciated that statement. Now he says he doesnt know if Mattis will remain in his Cabinet. In some ways, Trump sounds a little like the officials in the previous administration who saw Mattis as too aggressive on Iran. President Barack Obama ended up shoving Mattis out of his post as commander of U.S. Central Command a year early. Trump is well within his rights, of course, to hire a secretary of defense that will more enthusiastically implement his policies. But Trump should also appreciate that the man who currently has the job is one of the few remaining public figures in America who has the trust of both parties. Trump may find that irritating, but it will help him in the next crisis. Eli Lake is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering national security and foreign policy. He was the senior national security correspondent for the Daily Beast and covered national security and intelligence for the Washington Times, the New York Sun and UPI.ANOTHER OPINIONIf Mattis goes, Trump will miss him

All of the players returned safely, although defensive end Janar-ius Robinson, a Panama City native, lost his home when Hurricane Michaels eyewall came ashore just a few miles away.Robinson returned to the team and practiced on Tues-day.

Bradley then crushed a 1-1 fastball into the right field seats to send Houston fans streaming toward the exits.Game 4 is Wednesday night, with Bostons Rick Porcello opposing Charlie Morton.With his childhood hero and fellow Alvin, Texas, native Nolan Ryan sitting behind the plate, Eovaldi turned in another solid start. He allowed six hits and two runs with four strikeouts in six innings for the win in the second playoff start of his career.Red-hot slugger Alex Bregman had shared a video Monday on Instagram of Houston hitting back-to-back-to-back home runs off Eovaldi in his previous outing against the Astros in June. Eovaldi downplayed the post when asked about it Monday.Bregman did much of the damage against Eovaldi, getting two hits, an RBI and a walk in three plate appear-ances. Bregman has reached base safely in 20 of 28 plate appearances this postseason.Bradleys slam helps Red Sox beat AstrosSee ALCS, B3

He had surgery five days later, and no timetable was set for his return to the team.Considered one of the best players in college football, Bosa had left no doubt that he would leave school after this season to enter the draft. He planned to follow the same path as his older brother, Joey, who left Ohio State a year early and now plays for the Los Angeles Chargers.Nick Bosa had tied his career high of five tackles twice in the first three games this season, and he was leading the team in tackles with 14, including six for losses. ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.

The person spoke to The AP on the condition of anonym-ity because the team has not revealed the nature of the injury.Coach Sean McDermott would only list Allen as week to week on Monday, and wouldnt rule him out from playing this weekend.

PAGE 17 | Wednesday, October 17, 2018 B3The Seminoles offensive line, which has had six starting combinations due to injury, really benefited from the time off. However, Taggart said there is no timetable for tackle Landon Dickerson to return. Offensive tackle Derrick Kelly believes his leg is stronger now after missing two games and then playing as a backup in the 28-27 loss at Miami on Oct. 6. Guard Cole Minshew has been able to play through injuries to both ankles.It helped me a lot,Ž Minshew said of the break. Any time you get a little break and get to go home and go see your family, you just feel rejuvenated. You come back just ready to work.ŽFlorida State has plenty of work to do in the second half of the season. The Seminoles are looking to extend their streak of playing in bowl games to a 36th season but also face a daunting schedule.The last six games on Florida States schedule are the toughest in the FBS, according to the NCAA. Florida State will face four Top 25 teams „ No. 3 Clemson, No. 4 Notre Dame, No. 11 Florida and No. 16 N.C. State „ and those programs have a combined 24-1 record.Florida State hasnt beaten a ranked team since it knocked off No. 6 Michigan in the 2016 Orange Bowl. The road ahead wont be easy, but Taggart hopes the Semi-noles learned from letting a 20-point, second-half lead slip away in a loss to then-No. 17 Miami.They were upset, and rightfully so, but we had to be upset with ourselves because we didnt finish,Ž Taggart said. A hard way to learn. But we got to take those things and make sure we practice and pre-pare and make sure that those things dont happen again.Ž FSUFrom Page B1At Mount Dora, Heggie performed at an AllState level, earning first team honors in 2014 and 2015. He played in the prestigious Under Armor All-America game in Orlando and participated in The Opening 2015 at the Nike headquarters in Bea-verton, Oregon. Chad Simmons, Florida TechChad Simmons is used to winning.During his prep career at Mount Dora Christian Academy, Simmons helped MDCA „ then known as Mount Dora Bible „ win on the football field and on the basketball court.Now, hes helping Florida Tech win on the football field. A sophomore defensive back with the Panthers, an NCAA Division II program in Melbourne, Simmons had been in on three tack-les this season and has gotten off one punt for 27 yards. His best game, sta-tistically, came on Sept. 22 at West Georgia, when he assisted on two tackles in a 30-21 loss „ one of only two losses for the Pan-thers this season in seven games.For the season, Sim-mons three tackles is one stop shy of his total as a freshman in 2017.Simmons graduated from MDCA in 2015. As a senior, he helped the Bull-dogs to a 9-2 record on the football field and an 18-10 record on the basketball court.On the gridiron, Simmons ran for 207 yards on just eight carries „ an average of 25.9 yards per carry „ and scored four touchdowns. He also caught one pass for 20 yards and a score.On the hardwood, Sim-mons averaged 6.6 points and 3.5 rebounds per game. He also handed out 3.2 assists per outing.Next up for Simmons and Florida Tech is the University of West Florida at 5 p.m. Saturday at Blue Wahoos Stadium in Pensacola. Jonathan Yaun, Liberty University Jonathan Yauns fresh-man season with the Liberty Univer-sity mens golf team has gone as it would for most freshman. Hes had his share of ups and downs.Yaun finished tied for 39th place in his first match of the season, recording a three-round total of 7-over par at the Rod Myers Invitational at The Duke Golf Club in Durham, North Carolina. He tied for 47th place in his second match, the Shoal Creek Invitational in Birmingham, Alabama, and finished alone in 62nd place at the Intercolleigate at The Grove in College Grove, Tennessee.However, history suggests the best is yet to come for Yaun.Yaun became the first boys golfer from Lake and Sumter counties to win a state championship when he cruised to a four-shot win in 2017 in the Class 3A finals at Mission Inn Resort and Club in Howey-in-the-Hills. The state title helped soothe the hurt he felt after miss-ing the 2016 finals due to an illness.Next up for the Flames will be the Grandover Classic, a two-day event beginning Oct. 27 at the Granover Resort in Greensboro, North Carolina. HEGGIEFrom Page B1 Simmons Yaun MILLERFrom Page B1Miller could make golf more fun to hear than to watch. He doesnt have a filter. Thats why hes so good,Ž Roy said. What hes thinking comes out. And 99.5 percent of the time, that was a great thing for viewers, and for me. And 0.5 percent of the time, it was a problem for our PR department and for me. And it was worth it.Ž Roy was in Wisconsin on Monday night for his first look at Whistling Straits for the 2020 Ryder Cup. It will be the first Ryder Cup since 1989 that doesnt have Miller in the booth weighing in on good shots and bad with thoughts that immediately become words. He often entertained. He occasionally irritated. He was rarely dull. Miller is retiring after three decades calling the shots for NBC. His last tournament will be the Phoenix Open, the perfect exit for a Hall of Fame player once known as the Desert FoxŽ for winning six times in Arizona. Miller was so good for so long that it was easy for younger generations to forget about that other career he had. And to think that was nearly his only career in golf. Miller said he wasnt interested when NBC first approached him, but then his wife stepped in and told him it would be nice to have a steady paycheck. Even then, it took time for him to realize his audience was in the living room, not the locker room. He made his debut at the Bob Hope Classic in 1990 and it didnt take long for him to leave his mark. Peter Jacobsen faced an awkward lie to the 18th green with water to the left. The easiest shot to choke on,Ž Miller said. People thought about choking. Miller said it because thats what he was thinking. What came into his brain came out of his mouth,Ž said Mike McCarley, president of golf for NBC Sports. He was the first to really talk about the pressure. Its the most important element of the game, especially in those really big moments. He was doing it at a time when others werent.Ž It wasnt just the word choke.Ž Phil Mickelson was getting up-and-down from everywhere at the 2010 Ryder Cup when Miller suggested that if Lefty werent such a good putter hed be selling cars in San Diego. Justin Leonard and Hal Sutton were losing a fourballs match at the 1999 Ryder Cup when Miller blurted out, My hunch is that Justin needs to go home and watch it on television.Ž During the 2008 U.S. Open playoff at Torrey Pines that Tiger Woods won in 19 holes over Rocco Mediate, Miller suggested that guys named RoccoŽ dont get their name on the trophy, and that Mediate looked like the guy who cleans Tigers swimming pool.ŽBradley hit a three-run double during Bostons Game 2 victory, giving him three RBIs in consecutive games for the first time in his career. Moments after his slam, fans at TD Garden in Boston began chanting JBJ!Ž during the Celtics season opener against the Philadelphia 76ers.Osuna had two on and two out when he hit pinch-hitter Brock Holt in the shoe. Plate umpire Joe West didnt see that Holt was hit, but Red Sox man-ager Alex Cora challenged successfully for the hitby-pitch. Osuna then drilled pinch-hitter Mitch Moreland.Osuna was a controversial midseason pickup from Toronto while he served a 75-game ban under Major League Base-balls domestic violence policy.Pearce nearly delivered an extra-base hit with two on in the third, but 5-foot-6 left fielder Tony Kemp jumped at the wall and came up with Pearces towering fly. Replays showed the ball may have clanked off the wall just before falling into Kemps mitt, but umpires upheld the decision when Boston challenged.Boston jumped on Dallas Keuchel for two runs in the first, but the Astros cut the lead to 2-1 in the bottom of the inning and tied it on an RBI double by Bregman in the fifth.

DEAR ABBY: My husband has an extensive sexual history. He has had sex with more than 80 partners. All the encounters were when he was in high school and in his early 20s. Most were one-night stands with female friends. When we met, he was honest, and I was understanding. He didn't keep in touch with any of those females (pre-Facebook). But now he's friends with several of them on Facebook, and while he doesn't "talk" to them, he comments and "likes" many of their posts. This makes me uncomfortable because I don't feel that past sexual partners should be part of one's life once someone is married. I'm not jealous or insecure, I just think it's disrespectful. Am I controlling? -ANXIOUS IN ARIZONA DEAR ANXIOUS: Your husband was certainly active. Was he also able to keep his grade point up? You say he has been honest with you about his sexual history. Nowhere in your letter have you indicated that there has been any indelity. I suspect that in spite of your denial, you may be feeling a bit insecure, and if your husband is telling you that you're coming across as controlling, that is the way he perceives it. "Liking" the Facebook posts of someone you haven't seen in decades isn't inviting the person to have an affair. If I were you, I'd calm down.DEAR ABBY: How do I get across to my parents that I don't want them exposing my minor children to my mentally ill sister? "Evangeline" is bipolar, has borderline personality disorder and sometimes acts out in public. They know how strongly I feel about this but nd ways to expose my children to her anyway. My kids don't want to be around Evangeline, but my parents continue to push her on them. I'll give you an example: They'll take the kids out to dinner and "bump into her unplanned" at a restaurant. I don't know what else I can do other than tell them I don't like it. But when I do, they refuse to listen and get upset when my kids tell me they saw her. Please advise. -LOOKING OUT FOR MY KIDS DEAR LOOKING: Mental illness isn't contagious. As long as Evangeline is on her medication, she poses no threat to your children. Is it beyond the realm of possibility that these encounters with her ARE actually unplanned? Sometimes people -myself included -get into the habit of patronizing certain restaurants because they are nearby and serve reliably good food. It's easy to fall into a comfortable pattern. Because you feel so strongly about these encounters, tell your parents you prefer they take your children to places your sister doesn't frequent. However, if they persist in "pushing her on," as you put it, then you may have to consider restricting your parents' visits with the grandkids to situations you can control.DEAR ABBY: Can you tell me why women wear high-heeled shoes? I cannot think of any benets women derive from wearing them. Is it because they think high heels make their legs look more attractive, because it's the fashion or some other reason? -BAFFLED AND CONFUSED DEAR BAFFLED: Not only do high heels make the legs and ankles look more attractive, when a person wears them they appear to be a few pounds lighter because they look taller. THAT'S why! (Guilty as charged. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at or P.O.

YESTERDAYS SOLUTION BRIDGE CRYPTOQUOTE HOROSCOPES TODAY IN HISTORY DIVERSIONS Wife irked as man reconnects with old partners on Facebook HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR WEDNESDAY, OCT. 17, 2018:This year you walk through a new door. What you envision might not occur right away. Learn to be comfortable with the unknown and with people in general. Often, you project what you want onto situations. If you are single, take your time dating. You might not feel as if you have met someone you want to be with for the long term. If you are attached, the two of you often need to check in with each other, as misunderstandings can occur. You know how to breeze right through problems. AQUARIUS admires your thinking.ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) You seem to go where the unexpected occurs. Use caution with any nancial decisions. Do not overthink an offer at the moment. You might need to lessen your load rather than take on more responsibilities. Consider this possibility, and youll begin to mellow out. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Your determination could be met by someone elses stubbornness. It might be easier and more efcient to go along with this persons wishes, unless you nd his or her ideas impossible. Your response is likely to surprise many people. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Reach out to someone who helps you see the big picture. You could be taken aback by what you see when you let go of being right. Armed with more understanding, you can nd a midpoint of agreement between yourself and others. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Come to an agreement with others. You will see a situation much differently if you can walk away from your position. A meeting could surprise you with its agenda. The topic might not feel as on-target as you might like. Flow with the moment. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) You could feel as if you are being pulled in different directions. You might nd that you enjoy yourself more and become less and less invested in what you see as problems. Consider being less available to difcult people. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Reach out to a loved one at a distance who understands you well. This persons comments could open you up to another perspective. Caring evolves as others witness your attempt to understand where they are coming from. Open up to a possible change. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) You could be confused by someone with whom you felt you had a steady agreement. Suddenly uproar occurs. You can do very little to return to what was, nor should you want to. Release what is frivolous or unneeded, and proceed. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You might nd that a friend suddenly becomes unstable. Do not wonder what is needed. Let go, and allow this person to be who he or she is. Sometimes everyone needs to break free of constraints -self-imposed or otherwise. Express understanding.SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22DEC. 21) Open up to a new idea that could invigorate your life and make it much more exciting. At rst this possibility could shake you up. The more you think about it, the more enthusiastic you become. Do not push another person away. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22JAN. 19) A child or new friend topples your sense of well-being with his or her unpredictability. Rather than react, take a hard look at what is occurring and let go of the unneeded. Sometimes difculties stem from too much to do and from being overwhelmed. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) You feel differently than you have in a while. A shakeup, while upsetting, frees you up to do what you really want. If you are not sure of your true desires, take some time to re-evaluate. Encourage simplication. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You make an effort by reaching out to others. Though everyone might not respond, you could hear news that is likely to shock you. Relax and allow the situation to unfold naturally; soon you will realize what is motivating or triggering it. | Wednesday, October 17, 2018 B5 TODAY IS WEDNESDAY, OCT. 17, the 290th day of 2018. There are 75 days left in the year. TODAY'S HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY: On Oct. 17, 1933, Albert Einstein arrived in the United States as a refugee from Nazi Germany. ON THIS DATE: In 1931, mobster Al Capone was convicted in Chicago of income tax evasion. (Sentenced to 11 years in prison, Capone was released in 1939.) In 1941, the U.S. destroyer Kearny was damaged by a German torpedo o the coast of Iceland; 11 people died. In 1973 Arab oil-producing nations announced they would begin cutting back oil exports to Western nations and Japan; the result was a total embargo that lasted until March 1974. In 1979, Mother Teresa of India was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. In 1989, an earthquake measuring 7.1 on the Richter scale struck northern California, killing 63 people and causing $6 billion worth of damage. In 1992 Japanese exchange student Yoshi Hattori was fatally shot by Rodney Peairs in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, after Hattori and his American host mistakenly knocked on Peairs' door while looking for a Halloween party. (Peairs was acquitted of manslaughter, but was ordered in a civil trial to pay more than $650,000 to Hattori's family.)



PAGE 21 | Wednesday, October 17, 2018 B7 DINETom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 tom.mcniff@dailycommercial.comTAILGATINGHere are some tailgating tips from BeefItsWhatsForDinner. com:1. Prep as much as possible at home. This will help you save time and pack less.2. Check your cooking equipment. Make sure your grill or camp stove is clean and ready. Keep backup pro-pane and stick lighters on hand.5. Embrace the cast iron skillet. Great for cooking burgers, steaks and one-pan meals. Try a beef stir fry. Cut and marinate meat and veg-gies at home, toss in the skillet and enjoy!9. Pack and store every-thing safely. Raw beef should be at the bottom of the cooler (or in another cooler), packed separately.10. Serve food in creative, easy-to-hold ways. Use chip bags as a vessel for chili or beef tacos. Skewer steak chunks, veggies and meatballs on short bamboo sticks. SCHOOL LUNCHFruit and veggies an important lunchbox staple Children need plentiful nutrients to fuel their minds for school days. Thats why its important to pack fruits and vegetables in their daily lunch, according to Crispy Fruit.Its fun when you put a rain-bow in every lunch by packing colorful produce such as green cucumber, cherry tomatoes, purple plums, orange carrots and yellow peppers.

More Content NowFOOD FOR THOUGHTI'm often asked during my cooking demonstrations about what my favorite dish is to prepare. While everyone waits with enthusiasm, I gently let them down with my standard answer of: "I like to cook everything." If I'm being honest, that statement is mostly true because there are some dishes that I dont enjoy as well as others. However, the one thing I do like to prepare at home „ no matter what time of the year „ is soup. I really enjoy creating a fresh, made-from-scratch soup. I think that will now be my standard answer. Soups play a vital role in almost every culture around the globe and the right ingredients can cure many ailments, like how chicken soup can help you with a cold. Protein and Vitamin C will help your body down the road to recovery. Homemade soup is also economical. It doesnt take a lot of money to make a big pot of filling soup, and it is also crowd friendly.ROAMING GOURMETStock is vital to a great pot of soupThere is one key component to a good soup, and thats the base,Ž writes columnist Ze Carter. A good stock or broth is vital to a great pot of soup.

By Maura Judkis The Washington PostCHICAGO „ The pizza museum deserves to be in Chicago. But deep dish isnt pizza,Ž you might say. A pizza museum in Chicago is a pizza museum of inclusivity, and America could use a whole lot more of that right now. Its also in the Midwest, making it accessible and proximate to other great, underrated styles of pizza: St. Louis, Detroit, Quad Cities. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is in Cleveland, after all. The pizza museum deserves to be in New York. Pizza is New York. Inexpensive slices, folded over: If you know how to eat it, youre in. If you dont, you never belonged in the first place. There is a long history of pizza in New York, beginning in 1905 with Lombardis, acknowledged as the first pizzeria in America. Its the culinary capital of America, and it takes its slices seriously. The pizza museum in fact exists in both places, because there are two pizza museums. Each was founded by a dude who really, really likes pizza. They came up at the same time: The Chicago museum opened in August, and the New York one opens Oct. 13. Content-wise, however, theyre about as different as deep dish is to a dollar slice, and equally reflective of their locations. The United States Pizza Museum in Chicago is Midwestern sensibility. The Museum of Pizza in New York is style: immersive installations by artists, Instagrammable backdrops and a slice shop at the end.New museums celebrate pizza, be it Chicago deep dish or a New York slice

PAGE 23 | Wednesday, October 17, 2018 B9One of the simplest and most rewarding dishes in a cooks repertoire has to be the old-fashioned carrot and raisin salad. The ingredients are available any time of year, its budget-friendly and its practically foolproof. Even the most unimaginative of cooks can come up with any number of variations on the basic theme, and for something that tastes so good, its surprisingly nutritious. This particular version has a few more ingredients than the basic recipe. The combination of carrots, pineapple, and black raisins gets in most of the traditional Halloween colors. And the miniature marshmallows and flaked coconut add a suggestion of ghostly white. Pineapple tidbits or chunks would probably be more noticeable in the color scheme than crushed pineapple, but my theory is that the crushed version is better for distributing the flavor throughout the salad. But whether you decide on using chunks, tidbits, or crushed, its best to use pineapple that has been canned in unsweetened pineapple juice, simply because it tastes more like pineapple. You will notice the directions assume you are willing to start with whole carrots and take time to peel them and grate them. Some cooks use shredded carrots, or even chopped carrots, but I am prejudiced, and I think carrots are one of those things that really should be grated. Im convinced they simply dont taste as good when theyre shredded or chopped. I also think the flavor difference justifies putting my fingertips in peril by using a four-sided hand grater rather than simply dropping carrot chunks into the blender and pushing the grateŽ button. The ingredients list specifies black raisins, but dried cranberries can always be substituted for part or all of the raisins. Or you could use golden raisins, but they have a distinctly different flavor from the black, and in this particular recipe, I really dont think they would work as well. If the raisins are unattractively dry, it only takes a few minutes to plump them in the microwave oven. Put them in a small bowl, add a couple of teaspoons of water, then cover and microwave on high for about ten seconds. Let sit, still covered, for five minutes. If they still arent pleasingly plump, repeat the process, microwaving in increments of five seconds until youre happy with them. The yogurt can be plain or vanilla. A mild lemonflavored yogurt would work well, as would orange or pineapple. BLACK AND GOLD SALADIngredients:2 cups grated carrots‡ cup black raisins‡ cup canned mandarin sections, drained and rinsed‡ cup crushed pineapple, drained‡ cup miniature marshmallows cup flaked coconut cup yogurt 2 tablespoons lemon juice 2 tablespoons honeyDirections:In mixing bowl, combine carrots, raisins, mandarin sections, pineapple, marshmallows and coconut. Set aside. Mix together yogurt, lemon juice and homes. Pour over carrot mixture, and toss gently to combine. Cover and refrigerate. Let chill at least two hours, or until ready to serve.Yield: Makes four to six servings.Note: Some cooks disapprove of peeling carrots because the area right under the skin is especially rich in nutrients. Instead, they are in favor of simply scrubbing the carrots very thoroughly, using skin and all. If you arent quite comfortable with the peel-on method, an intermediate method would be to drop your carrots into a pot of boiling water, remove the pot from the burner, and let it sit, covered for five minutes. Then put the carrots in cold water for a few seconds, and the skins will slip right off. Usually, carrots have had the green tops removed long before they reach your supermarket shelf. However, once in a while, you find them sold by the bunch, tops and all. In that case, remove the greens before refrigerating. If left on during refrigeration, the top draws moisture from the carrot root, leaching out nutrients and causing bitterness. And by the way, when refrigerating your carrots in a plastic bag, be sure the bag has holes in it. Otherwise, the carrots release a chemical which reduces sweetness and makes them somewhat bitter.

B10 Wednesday, October 17, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comThere is one key component to a good soup, and that's the base. A good stock or broth is vital to a great pot of soup. If your soup does not have a rich and flavorful stock, then you might as well throw out the entire pot. There are things that you can do to add flavor after the soup is done, but it still will fall short. My secret to a good soup is the broth. Not just any broth, but one made from scratch. If you get this part right, the rest is elementary. Many soups have a chicken or vegetable broth base. You can easily find them at the grocery store, but keep in mind that they are full of sodium and other hard to pronounce ingredients. I prefer making my own base, including my white wine shrimp stock. It's perfect for vegetable soup, as a gumbo base or you can just enjoy it on its on in a mug on a chilly day. It freezes really well and also makes a great bloody Mary base. Shrimp stock is the next great thing. While there is a bit of work on the front end because you need to buy raw shrimp in their shell and peel them, after that, the rest is gravy „ or shall I say, stock. ZE'S WHITE WINE SHRIMP STOCKIngredients:3 tablespoons olive oil pound raw shrimp shells (you will need approximately 2 pounds of large shrimp) 1 rib celery, chopped 1 carrot, chopped 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped 1 small yellow onion, chopped 2 cloves garlic, chopped 1 quart water 1 cup white wine 4 tablespoons tomato paste 2 tablespoons fresh parsley 1 sprig fresh thyme 1 teaspoon whole peppercorns 1 bay leafDirections:Heat oil in a stock pot over medium heat. Add shrimp shells and saute for 3-4 minutes, stirring until shells look dry. Add vegetables and spices and saute for another 3-4 minutes. Add water, tomato paste and wine. Bring mixture to a boil for 5 minutes then reduce heat to a low simmer for 45 minutes. Remove from heat, strain broth and discard vegetables and shells. Store broth in a glass container in fridge for up to three days or freeze for up to six months. Ze Carter is a food columnist for the Daily Commercial. Email her at CARTERFrom Page B7 By Becky KrystalThe Washington PostMore than anything else in the entire world, I hate, with all my heart, hyperbole. (See what I did there?) Food ou tlets are no less guilty than anyone else (me too at some point, no doubt). So Im already kicking myself for saying this, but Im going to share a recipe with you that . changed my life. Theres enough evidence to support the claim, though. I did not grow up eating Indian food, much less cooking it. I tried it for the first time only as a senior in college, when I went out to eat with my then-boyfriend/ now-husband. Once we moved in together, we started cooking together, and this Easy Chickpea Curry caught our attention. (I first learned about the recipe in a blog post about chickpeas by Kim ODonnel, who had adapted it from the great Indian cookbook author Madhur Jaffrey.)Indian cuisine often gets a rap as too complicated or too spicy or too time-consuming or too ingredientheavy (or all of the above) to cook at home. This recipe disproves all of that „ and happens to be bold and delicious to boot. It erased every bit of intimidation for me, and now my husband and I cook Indian food „ often this very dish „ almost every week. And chickpeas are practically their own food group in our house now. The ingredients list may look long, but you probably already have most of them on hand in your pantry or refrigerator. Many just get tossed into a blender or food processor for a blink-and-youredone sauce. The recipe is also fairly flexible „ a little more or less of one spice (or even none of it) wont make or break the dish. (Just dont skip frying the cardamom pods, bay leaves and cinnamon stick in the skillet first, which helps bloom the spices and flavor the oil, and therefore the curry.) If youre feeding a crowd, this curry can easily absorb another potato. Want to use up more of that bunch of cilantro? Throw it in for more vivid flavor and color. The kind and amount of fresh pepper you use is flexible, too: A few small green chiles are fine, but a quarter, half or even whole jalapeo „ depending on how spicy you like things „ works as well. Or skip it altogether, which is what I do for my toddler. Yes, its my sons favorite dish. Dare I say it might change his life, too? Easy Chickpea CurryINGREDIENTS € 8 ounces ripe tomato, hulled and coarsely chopped € One 2-inch piece fresh ginger root, peeled and coarsely chopped € 4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped € Fresh hot green chiles of choice, such as 2 or 3 Thai green chiles or to jalapeo (optional; seeds removed, if desired) € 1 cup packed cilantro leaves and tender stems € 1 tablespoon ground coriander € 2 teaspoons ground cumin € teaspoon ground turmeric € teaspoon ground cayenne pepper € 1- teaspoons salt € 1 cup plus 6 tablespoons water € 3 tablespoons canola or saf” ower oil € One 3-inch cinnamon stick € 5 whole green cardamom pods, smashed with the ” at side of a chefs knife € 2 bay leaves € 1 medium onion, cut into small dice (about 1 cup) € 2 medium russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks € Two 15-ounce cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained (about 3 cups total) STEPS Combine the tomato, ginger, garlic, chiles (if using), cilantro, coriander, cumin, turmeric, cayenne pepper, 1 teaspoon of the salt and 6 tablespoons of the water in a blender or food processor. Puree to form a smooth, pourable sauce. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil shimmers, add the cinnamon stick, cardamom pods and bay leaves; stir for 30 seconds or until fragrant, then add the onion and potatoes. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the onion softens and the potatoes begin to turn golden. Stir in the pureed sauce, so the onion and potatoes are well coated. Cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 5 minutes, then uncover long enough to stir in the chickpeas, the remaining teaspoon of salt and the remaining 1 cup of water. Once the mixture begins to bubble, cover and cook for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the potatoes are fork-tender. Allow the curry to cool for a few minutes, then discard the cinnamon stick, bay leaves and cardamom pods.Anyone can make this chickpea curry at homeEasy Chickpea Curry lives up to all three of its labels.
