STEAMPUNK SHOW: Two days of entertainment and vendors at the Steampunk and Industrial Show Saturday and Sunday at Renningers Antique Center in Mount Dora.By Scott McFetridgeThe Associated PressDES MOINES, Iowa „ Despite the terrible odds „ one in 302.5 million for those keeping score at home „ someone will eventually match all six numbers and win the Mega Millions jackpot, which now stands at $970 million. It could happen as soon as tonight, when the next drawing is held.That would leave most of us disappointed but some lucky winner beset by a host of questions. Here are some answers for someone holding that prized lottery ticket for what would be the second-largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history. IVE WON. NOW WHAT?Lottery officials recommend winners take a deep breath, put their winning ticket in a safe spot and consult with a reputable financial planner before popping over to the lottery headquarters. Their first decision is whether to take the cash option, which would now be $548 million, or an annuity, with one initial payment and annual installments over 29 years. Nearly all winners opt for cash, but the annuity has advantages, as it reduces the tax bill a little and offers a stable flow of income that climbs by 5 percent annually. HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO CLAIM THE JACKPOT?States have different rules, so depending on where you purchased the ticket, you have from 180 days to a year. DO I GET MY MONEY INSTANTLY?No, you cant just cash one of those oversized checks shown in all the winner photos. Payment speed also varies by state, but a week or two is common. Carole Gentry, a spokeswoman for the Maryland lottery, said the requirement is seven to 10 days in that state.What happens if you win $970M jackpot?Helena Gomez buys two Mega Millions lottery tickets at Race Trac in Mount Dora.

Dad sat in the dark and pondered how it could be that his sons first night out of a hospital could be spent outside a big-box retailer because of a lack of help.It really upset me, man, because Ive always been the type of person who would help anyone,Ž Capps said in an interview with The Associated Press, which found the family outside the store Monday night.

BRUSSELSEU looks to African nations, border control to stop migrantsEuropean Union leaders agreed Thursday to pursue the cooperation of countries in North Africa and to beef up the blocs external borders to stop large numbers of migrants from entering Europe.A statement from an EU summit in Brussels where the leaders of member countries discussed migration empha-sized the need to work with the countries that Europe-bound migrants depart from or travel through.Working with those countries on investigating, apprehending and prosecut-ingŽ smugglers and traffickers that take refugees and eco-nomic migrants on dangerous journeys by land and sea should be intensified,Ž the leaders said.The Associated Press Pressure turns to Mexico as migrant caravan heads for the borderBy Sonia Perez D.The Associated PressGUATEMALA CITY „ As some 3,000 Hondurans made their way through Guatemala, attention „ and pressure „ turned to Mexico, after U.S. President Donald Trump threatened Thursday to close the U.S.-Mexico border if authorities there fail to stop them „ a nearly unthinkable move that would disrupt hundreds of thousands of legal freight, vehicle and pedes-trian crossings each day.With less than three weeks before the Nov. 6 midterm elections, Trump seized on the migrant caravan to make border security a political issue and energize his Republican base.I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught „ and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!Ž Trump tweeted on Thursday, adding that he blamed Democrats for what he called weak laws!ŽThe threat followed another one earlier this week to cut off aid to Central American countries if the migrants werent stopped. However, earlier this year Trump made a similar vow over another large migrant caravan, but didnt follow through and it largely petered out in Mexico.On Thursday, Mexico dis-patched additional police to its southern border, after the Casa del Migrante shel-ter on the Guatemalan side of the border reported that hundreds of Hondurans had already arrived there.Mexican officials say the Hondurans wont be allowed to enter as a group, and would either have to show a passport and visa „ something few have „ or apply individually for refugee status, a process that can mean waiting for up to 90 days for approval.Mexicos ambassador to Guatemala, Luis Manuel Lopez Moreno, met with leaders of the caravan Wednesday and warned them that Hondurans caught with-out papers in Mexico would be deported.Still, the idea that Mexico could close its porous south-ern border „ or that the United States would choke off the lucrative trade and other traffic between the two nations „ strained the imagination.And, much like Guate-mala and Honduras, Mexico is itself a country of many migrants, raising the question of whether the political will exists for a confrontation.Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obra-dor, who takes office on Dec. 1, wants to avoid repression against migrants and also avoid angering the United States. He has long pushed economic development as a way to keep people from migrating, and on Wednes-day he reached out again.We will offer jobs, work to Central Americans. Anyone who wants to work in our country will have help, will have a work visa,Ž he pledged.As the mass of humanity strung out from Guatemala City to the border, it was unclear whether those who made it the farthest would wait for their countrymen to arrive before attempting a mass crossing into Mexico. By Thursday, the caravan had dispersed a bit, with the youngest and strongest of the migrants walking ahead together, some boarding buses or trying to hitch rides.Mauro Verzzeletti, a priest who runs the Casa del Migrante shelter in the Gua-temalan capital, said about 3,000 people slept there overnight and left around 4 a.m. to continue the journey, adding that more are arriving.ŽOn Thursday, Trump said he prioritizes border security over even the recently struck trade deal to replace NAFTA, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA.The assault on our coun-try at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hope-fully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border,Ž Trump tweeted.Marcelo Ebrard, Lopez Obradors pick to become foreign relations secretary after he takes office, said Trumps tweets needed to be understood in the context of the upcoming U.S. midterm elections.The electoral process is very near, so he is making a political calculation,Ž Ebrard said in an interview with Radio Centro.Trumps stance, he said, was what he has always presented,Ž adding he saw nothing surprising in it.ŽJuan Escobar, 24, who was among the Honduran migrants in the caravan, said such rhetoric would not dis-suade them from continuing the journey.Only God on high can stop us,Ž Escobar said.Carlos Lopez, 27, said he was hopeful of securing a 40-day work visa in Mexico. He added that he was concerned by the U.S. presi-dents threats, but you have to keep fighting.ŽTrump threatens border closureHonduran migrants leave Guatemala City at sunrise Thursday as they continue their way north toward the U.S. Many of the more th an 2,000 Hondurans in a migrant caravan trying to wend its way to the United States left spontaneously with little more than the c lothes on their backs and what they could quickly throw into backpacks.

A4 Friday, October 19, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comBaker was among the area leaders on hand for an opening media event Thursday at Daytona International Speedway. Speaking above the insistent, low rumble of motorcycle engines idling in the parking lot nearby, area leaders on Thursday offered an official welcome to the 26th Annual Biketoberfest at a media event at Daytona Inter-national Speedway.The 26th Annual Bik-etoberfest is already off to a good start,Ž said Baker. Baker offered thanks to a laundry list of corporate and community sponsors and to visitors headed to town for the four-day event that concludes Sunday.The impact of this event is not just Daytona Beach, not just Volusia County,Ž Baker said. It is a regional event now. Our partners in tourism throughout the area really look forward to these bikers coming to town. If youve been out and about talking to them they are pretty excited about it, too.ŽBaker also introduced the Five PsŽ of the event, an assortment of commemorative and informational freebies designed to help Biketoberfest visitors make the most of the event. Visitors can find the PsŽ„ commemorative poker chips, posters, pins, photo ops and a useful event pocket guide „ at the events official welcome tent in Riverfront Park on Beach Street, she said.Send in your photo ops with the tag #biketoberfest and well look at putting them up on the site,Ž Baker said, alluding to the events official online home at biketoberfest.Baker was joined on stage by other area lead-ers including Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood; Daytona Beach Police Chief Craig Capri; and Volusia County Chair Ed Kelley, among others.Chitwood urged area drivers to be especially alert for motorcycles on the road.Id remind our local folks to keep your head on a swivel,Ž Chitwood said. There are a lot more bikers out on the road.ŽKelley recalled his childhood, when his par-ents wouldnt allow him to have a motorcycle, despite his eagerness to ride.I enjoy hearing the motorcycles (at Biketoberfest),Ž Kelley said. I enjoy the crowds that are here. Have a good time. Stay safe. Enjoy your time while youre here.Ž DAYTONAFrom Page A3Still, the shelter is looking for homes for the remaining felines, offering cat adoptions for $10 with a second cat free.The cats arrived at the shelter Oct. 2 and 3 in two shipments from a home in Lady Lake.Lake County Animal Control officers at the shelter said the animals seemed to be well-treated but that the person taking care of them had become overwhelmed by their number.Many of the cats werent neutered, and two of the cats had recently had kittens.The cats arrived at the shelter and tested negative for disease, appeared well fed, and ranged in age from five years to two weeks.At the time, Boylston suggested the cats may need time to be social-ized in foster care before finding new homes, but the shelter has since put the mostly docile cats in homes. And there has been plenty of interest.Thirty three cats were adopted in just over two weeks since they arrived, and shelter workers hope the rest will find homes by the end of the month.Boylston wanted to remind Lake residents that even after these cats are gone, there are plenty more for prospective pet owners to consider.We still have plenty of great adoptable animals available, and we encourage people to visit the Lake County Animal Shelter when looking for a pet,Ž Boylston said.The shelters adoption rates for the most recent fiscal year went up 33 percent from the prior year.By Sept. 30 this year, the shelter had adopted out 4,234 animals, com-pared to 3,194 by the same date in 2017.While the shelters intake is still greater than its adoptions, the shelter made significant progress closing the gap.Last year, the shelter had adopted out less than half of its intake, but this year, it was two thirds. CATSFrom Page A3The eight counties, which have been a solid voting bloc for Republicans in state races, included 223,175 registered voters as of the August primaries. Roughly 43 percent of the voters were registered as Republicans, while 40 percent were Democrats and 17 percent were inde-pendents or registered with third parties.More than a week after the Oct. 10 landfall of Hurricane Michael in Mexico Beach, the eight counties continue to grapple with problems such as power outages.As of Thursday morning, for example, power was still out to 97 percent of Calhoun County and 81 percent of Jackson County, according to the state Division of Emergency Management. Similarly, power was out to 66 percent of Liberty County, while Bay, Gulf and Franklin counties were above 50 percent without power.As part of Scotts executive order, voters in the eight counties will be able to request „ through telephone calls or in writing „ for voteby-mail ballots to be mailed to addresses that dont match the voters addresses in the Florida Voter Registration System.This will help displaced voters to cast a ballot,Ž Detzners office said in the news release.The order also will allow vote-by-mail ballots to be delivered to registered voters or their family members in the counties on Election Day.On Wednesday, the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida noted that postal carriers in Calhoun County were unable to access half or more than half of the rural county, which is between Tallahassee and Panama City.Meanwhile, the execu-tive order will allow the counties to continue early voting through the Nov. 6 election, a move intended to help voters whose precinct locations may have been damaged by the storm.Early voting is manda-tory statewide from Oct. 27 to Nov. 3, but county supervisors have the option to start the process Monday and add Nov. 4 to the schedule.On Wednesday, Leon County Supervisor of Elections Mark Earley noted precinct locations and early-voting sites throughout the hurricane-wracked counties have been destroyed.Poll workers have uncertain housing chal-lenges there,Ž Earley said. There are challenges just getting water and food there, certainly. One of the biggest problems we are encountering is com-munications within some of these counties. The cellphone towers are out. The internet is out. There are a lot of communications issues that we are trying to overcome.Ž Scotts executive order also directed Detzner to coordinate with local supervisors to ensure members of the Florida National Guard, first responders, law-enforce-ment officers, utility workers and volunteers involved in the recov-ery effort are able to cast ballots.

[GERALD HERBERT/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] A few miles away, 70-year-old Ed Kirkpatrick and his 72-year-old wife, Sandra Sheffield, huddle together in a splintered mobile home surrounded by fallen pine trees. A noisy genera-tor powers the old box fan blowing warm air across their den. Theyre both afraid to leave because of widespread reports of looting.The man, a diabetic who has a big scar down the middle of his chest from heart surgery, needs medical attention and ice to refrigerate his insulin, said Sheffield, who has a pacemaker. But getting out in traffic takes hours and precious fuel, she said, and looters could show up at any time.I dont want to go anywhere because I know Im safe here,Ž said Shef-field, burying her head in a twisted towel to cry.Michael slammed into Floridas Panhandle with 155 mph winds on Oct. 10 and retained hurricaneforce winds deep into southern Georgia, also affecting the Carolinas and Virginia. Florida authorities on Thursday say the storm killed 20 people in the state, bringing the overall death toll to at least 30.With power still out in much of the Panhandle and thousands of buildings destroyed or damaged by Michael, almost nothing is normal. Even simple tasks are difficult or impossible.Driving times are doubled or tripled because roads are clogged with police and fire vehicles, utility trucks, returning residents and people seeking help. Lines are long outside a discount store where more than two dozen insurance, financial services and cellphone companies have set up in a temporary village of open-sided tents erected on asphalt.Unseasonably warm temperatures in the 80s are adding to the misery because so few people can cool down with air condi-tioning. Bottled water is plentiful at roadside aid stations; ice is another matter. MICHAELFrom Page A1CAN I KEEP MY NAME SECRET?Winners can remain anonymous in six states „ Delaware, Kansas, Maryland, North Dakota, Ohio and South Carolina. In Arizona, people who win more than $600 can keep their names secret for 90 days after claiming prizes, but after that names are public record. In Michigan, winners are anonymous unless they win Mega Millions or Powerball prizes. WHAT ABOUT TAXES?For winners of $5,000 or more, all states automati-cally deduct 24 percent in federal taxes but state taxes vary widely. Some big states, including California, don't withhold taxes from lottery winnings, and some like Texas don't have indi-vidual income taxes at all. For the others, the state takes a bite, especially in New York, where a winner would need to pay a state tax of 8.8 percent. Residents of New York City would pay an additional tax of 3.9 percent. In gen-eral, taxes eat up nearly half of winnings.Melissa Labant, a tax policy expert at the Amer-ican Institute of Certified Public Accountants, said winners should realize that while taxes are initially withheld when prizes are awarded, more money will likely be due at tax time as people suddenly are in up to a 37 percent tax bracket."That catches people off guard," she said. "You have to be prepared to write another check to the IRS in April." WHAT ARE MY TAXES IF I DON'T LIVE IN THE STATE WHERE I BOUGHT THE TICKET?This can get complicated, but for the most part win-ners pay taxes where they bought the ticket and then can get a credit on their taxes in their home state. The final tax bill can depend on if the state where you live taxes at a higher or lower rate than where you purchased the ticket. Rules vary by state, so this is a good topic for that financial planner. JACKPOTFrom Page A1We are expecting insane lines here on Friday,Ž Race Trac man-ager Justin Rapp said. We have already had increased sales for it and are expecting to see the jackpot reach $1 billion.ŽBrewington said she plans on getting in on it as well.I keep selling them to everyone else, so I figured Id better take a chance,Ž she said. I cant even imagine what that would feel like to win. Id be set for life.ŽIf she were to win the $970 million, she said she would give some of it to charity, buy all her children a house and help out her family.Helena Gomez also purchased a Mega Mil-lions ticket.If I win, Im going to buy a mansion and move all my kids down here from Louisiana,Ž she said.Likewise, Carol Barnes said she would split it with her family so they all get a piece of the pie, and Denis Pope would give the money to his wife so they could retire again and see more of the world.And David Quevedo has a unique dream he would fulfill with his $900 million.I would like to go to every baseball park and watch the Dodgers play in each one.ŽThe next drawing takes place at 11 p.m. today.

But she said her newborn deserves better than the stormy life hes had so far.We had everything. Full-time job, a place to live. One day we had it all, the next we had nothing,Ž said Smith. This is not what I thought Id be bringing him back to.ŽThe story of Lukes birth is just one amid the chaos that life has become in areas of the Florida Panhandle hit hardest by Michael.With the hurricane bearing down on their native home of Panama City, Capps and Smith sent their three other children to stay with relatives. Doctors had planned to induce labor on Oct. 11, the day after Michael made landfall between here and Mexico Beach, wiping out a wide expanse of buildings and timber.Smith went to the hospital as planned that day, courtesy of a ride in a police car along streets crisscrossed with downed trees and powerlines. Smith said workers at Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center told her they couldnt deliver a baby that day, so she walked several miles home after being unable to find a ride back.Anya Mayr, a Gulf Coast Regional spokes-woman, said the hospital has operated only as an emergency room and hasnt admitted patients since Michael. About 560 people have been treated for inju-ries ranging from storm wounds to heart attack and chainsaw cuts, she said, and more than 170 have been transferred to other hospitals by ambulances and helicopters.Labor pains started the next day, so Capps drove Smith to a hospital about 80 miles to the north in Dothan, Alabama, which was flooded with coastal refugees from Michael. She gave birth at 1 a.m. last Saturday, three days after Michaels landfall.Discharged from the hospital and unable to find a hotel room nearby, the couple drove back to Florida, where condi-tions had improved only slightly since Michael.Still unable to stay at their storm-damaged home amid oppressive heat and bugs, Capps settled on the Walmart parking lot because they were low on gas and were fearful of driving at night with a curfew in place. The store has a reputation for letting travelers sleep in the parking lot overnight, and Capps knew it.I had no choice, (Luke) would have had a heatstroke. When he started acting like he was getting sick from the heat and wouldnt eat, thats when we went to Walmart,Ž Capps said. There was kind of a breeze there, there was no bugs biting us. I said Were all right now.Ž BABYFrom Page A1Cashier Marsha Brewington checks lottery tickets to see if they are a winner at Race Trac in Mount Dora.

The Associated Press By Marley JayThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ U.S. stocks slumped again Thursday as investors continued to sell shares of technology and internet companies, industrials, and companies that rely on consumer spending.Several industrial companies tumbled after releasing weak quarterly reports, and European stocks also fell as European Union leaders criticized Italys spending plans.At the start of trading, stocks took small losses as bond prices fell and interest rates spiked. While the gain in interest rates didnt last, stocks turned lower late in the morning, and by the end of the day they had wiped away most of their big rally on Tuesday.The S&P 500 fell 40 points, or 1.4 percent, to 2,768. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 327 points, or 1.3 percent, to 25,379. It was down as much as 470 earlier.The Nasdaq gave up 157 points, or 2.1 percent, to 7,485. The Russell 2000 of smaller-company stocks fell 28 points, or 1.8 percent, to 1,560.Stocks have skidded over the last two weeks, and there are signs inves-tors are worried about future economic growth. The S&P 500 has fallen 5.5 percent in volatile trading since Oct. 3, and technology, industrial and energy companies have taken some of the biggest losses. Those companies tend to do better when the economy is growing more quickly and consumers and busi-nesses have more money to spend.Stocks sink on weak industrial earningsBy Josh BoakThe Associated PressBALTIMORE „ A healthy dose of job growth has long been seen as a likely cure for poverty. But new research suggests that poor Americans are frequently left behind even when their cities or communities benefit from hiring booms.When such cities as Atlanta and Charlotte enjoyed a job surge in the 20 years that began in 1990, for example, the job gains mostly bypassed residents „ often AfricanAmerican „ who had been born into poverty.That is among the findings of a study led by Raj Chetty, a Harvard economist whose newly launched Opportunity Atlas found no association between job growth and economic mobility for poor residents of the affected areas. Job growth is not sufficient by itself to create upward mobility,Ž Chetty said. Its almost as though racial disparities have been amplified by job growth.ŽHis finding challenges much of the conventional thinking, of government officials, business executives and econ-omists, that job gains are the surest way to lift up people in impoverished communities.President Donald Trump pledged to save neglected towns through jobs, jobs, jobs.Ž His 2016 presidential rival, Hillary Clinton, asserted that government investments to foster hiring would help create an economy that works for everyone.Ž Governors and mayors have traded tax breaks for pledges by companies to create jobs in distressed communities.But Chetty and his colleagues, whose atlas exam-ined communities down to Census tract levels, found that economic mobility hinges more freq uently on other factors. A persons race, for example, plays a pivotal role. Economic mobility varied widely among people of dif-ferent races who lived in the same neighborhoods in Los Angeles or Houston, among other places.Additionally, living in neighborhoods with many two-parent families improves the likelihood of emerging from poverty„ even when someone was raised by a single parent. Mobility is often greater for children who come from neighborhoods with higher-priced housing. And its generally better when a high proportion of adults in a neighborhood are working, according to the analysis.In the two decades that ended in 2010, the Atlanta and Charlotte areas were flooded with jobs. But many of the people hired were moving to these areas, so people from poorer neigh-borhoods essentially got cut out of the boom.Metro Pittsburgh, on the other hand, lost jobs between 1990 and 2010, yet its residents economic mobility improved as the area became a nexus for college graduates working in technology and health care.In Baltimore, the Old TownŽ neighborhood near Johns Hopkins Hospital is a mecca of entrepreneurship. The number of jobs there surged 21 percent between 2004 and 2013, compared with job growth of just 3.4 percent nationally.Yet the neighborhood is marked by abandoned store-fronts, public housing and a 93 percent non-white population. More than half its residents live in poverty. And the Opportunity Atlas shows that a low-income child from that neighborhood is likely to become even poorer as an adult.Mobility ... for someJob growth is found to be no cure for a communitys povertyJob growth is not su cient by itself to create upward mobility. Its almost as though racial disparities have been ampli ed by job growth.ŽRaj Chetty, Harvard economist BUSINESSBy Rob Gillies, Gene Johnson and Tracey LindemanThe Associated PressMONTREAL „ Cam Battley is a top executive at one of Canadas biggest marijuana companies, but he isnt sticking around to savor the countrys historic pot legalization.Hes off to Germany on Friday and Australia next week „ a sign of what a leader Canada has become in the global pot industry, and of the reverberations its decision to legalize could have internationally.Its a special moment, not just for Canada, but for the world because my strong conviction is that the rest of the world will follow suit,Ž said Battley, chief corporate officer at Aurora Cannabis. Were not known as wild and crazy. Were known for good public policy and I think they will follow our lead.ŽBattley will attend an inves-tor conference in Germany and then head to Australia, which legalized medical mari-juana in 2016. Hell meet with a corporate business partner and talk with policymakers in Sydney and Melbourne.Battleys itinerary is indica-tive of the internationalization of the marijuana industry. And with national legaliza-tion taking effect Wednesday, Canada has emerged as the world leader. Its the second nation „ and by far the largest „ with countrywide legaliza-tion of so-called recreational pot.Its deliberate approach, which took more than two years of planning, allows provinces to shape their own laws within a federal framework, including setting the minimum age and deciding whether to distribute through state-run or private retail outlets. That offers other countries a model somewhere between the more strictly regulated system in Uruguay, the only other country with legal sales, and the more commercial version in some of the nine U.S. states that have approved recreational marijuana.Canadas federal approval has given its industry a huge advantage over its American counterpart, including unfet-tered access to banking and billions of dollars in investment. Canadians can even order marijuana online and have weed delivered by mail to their door.Thats all made for some envy among American canna-bis entrepreneurs, including Derek Peterson, the chief executive of California-based marijuana producer Terra Tech. Peterson took out a full page ad in the Wall Street Journal this week urging Pres-ident Donald Trump to help ease prohibition and eliminate hurdles for the U.S. pot industry before Canada leaves it even farther behind.Some in the U.S. Congress have also taken notice, press-ing for the federal government to get out of the way of states that want to legalize, but it remains unclear what weight Canadas legalization might carry south of the border.After Canada legalizes pot, industry eyes rest of worldA man walks past vacant storefronts at the Old Town Mall on Wednesday in Baltimore.

PAGE 7 | Friday, October 19, 2018 A7HAVE YOUR SAYWe welcome signed letters and guest columns. Letters should not exceed 300 words and columns should not exceed 500 words. Colum ns need to include a recent headshot of the writer. We edit for length, clarity, and grammar. Mail: Voices, P.O. Box 490007, Leesburg, FL 34749-0007 Email: Fax: 352-365-1951 Two of the 12 proposed amendments to the Florida Constitution on general election ballots statewide are the results of intensive petition drives. The proposals were subject to review by the state Supreme Court to test their clarity and compliance with ballot-language requirements. AMENDMENT 3 Amendment 3 is su btitled Voter control of gambling in Florida,Ž and according to the ballot summary, approval of the measure ensures that Florida voters shall have the exclusive right to decide whether to authorize casino gambling by requiring that in order for casino gambling to be authorized under Florida law, it must be approved by Florida votersŽ in a statewide referendum. The proposal seeks, in essence, to re-establish and codify the role of voters in the approval and expansion of gambling „ long a hot topic in Florida. In recent decades, the Legislature and governor have asserted more influence over casino gambling. This amendment is intended, in part, to reverse that trend. The Seminole Tribe of Florida, which operates casinos and offers various forms of gambling, and Disney, which has opposed expansion of gaming, have contributed heavily „ in their self-interest „ to the committee behind this initiative. Those contributions are enough to give voters pause but not enough to warrant opposition; after all, the tribe and Disney approach the issue from opposite sides. Preserving voter control of gambling is important. It also important to protect the Florida brand, and as we have seen in other states that have legalized widespread casino gambling, it rarely leads to the positive things that are promised up front.We recommend voting YES on Amendment 3.AMENDMENT 4 Subtitled Voting restoration amendment,Ž the Amendment 4 ballot summary reads: This amendment restores the voting rights of Floridians with felony convictions after they complete all terms of their sentence including parole or probation. The amendment would not apply to those convicted of murder or sexual offenses, who would continue to be permanently barred from voting unless the Governor and Cabinet vote to restore their voting rights on a case-by-case basis.Ž There are many reasons for voters to endorse this amendment. Chief among them: It is the right thing to do. Despite having paid their debts to society, more than 1.5 million ex-felons in Florida „ the largest number of any state „ are denied voting rights. This is morally wrong. It is also unnecessarily punitive: Denying voting rights does nothing to protect public safety or advance the common good; it erects yet another barrier that makes it more difficult for former inmates to reintegrate into society. Many states automatically restore the voting rights of people convicted of lesser and nonviolent offenses. Not Florida, at least not now. In 2007, then-Gov. Charlie Crist helped streamline the clemency and voting-rights restoration processes. As a result, between 2007 and 2011, more than 155,000 Floridians had their rights restored. Upon his election in 2011, Gov. Rick Scott reversed that progress, instituting waiting periods, requiring petitioners to appear before him and state officials and refusing to articulate standards for decision-making. During Scotts eightyear tenure, only 3,200 restoration cases have been approved „ a clear sign that disenfranchisement has been the goal. Its long past time to change course. Once a felon pays his or her debt to society, it is only fair that they get their voting rights restored.We recommend voting YES on Amendment 4.OUR OPINIONIn support of Amendments 3, 4 ANOTHER OPINION Who is the world really laughing at?As we all know, Trump lives in an alternative world in which lying is accepted behavior by a politician and currently the president.Trump constantly makes up claims that have no factual basis because he knows that his followers will never check the facts for truth. So he repeated the false claim that Obama was being laughed at by world lead-ers. The facts are that Obama was highly respected by most world leaders and certainly the majority of Americans. Recently, we have seen who the entire world (except Russia and North Korea) is laughing at. In a speech before the United Nations Trump was falsely boasting what a great job he is doing as president. To his fol-lowers, agreement would be universal, however, laughter erupted from most members of the United Nations. It is demoralizing to see that the President of the United States has become the laugh-ing stock of the world. Barry McAlister, Leesburg The Atlantic or the Gulf?I watched an interesting pro-gram about the Netherlands, a country one-third below sea level, yet they never flood.The reason why seems to be that they have wisely invested in protection and mitigation strategies, which have held the sea at bay. Funds were used to upgrade and protect, not to just rebuild and replace.That brings us to the enabling trio of FEMA, Federal Flood Insurance and the Citizens Property Insurance Company. When no one else will insure your property, these folks wont say no.Ž And why not? In one way or another, they are all being subsidized by both other policy holders and or the American taxpayer. So what can be done here?First of all, stop the waste-ful cycle of destroy and replace and, instead, implement the cycle of destroy and protect. Some places have already rebuilt with improvements with help from the Netherlands. Secondly, I believe it would be fair (and wise) not to offer to insure properties that have already been destroyed once and would be at high risk if rebuilt. Pay the loss off in full, but from that point forward the property owner must purchase or provide his own insurance if they insist on rebuilding. The mountains are nice, too.This will be insanely unpop-ular with all the beach property owners, but look at all the destroyed homes in Mexico Beach. The mayor boldly states, we will rebuild.Ž But in the end, on whose dime?There are places it was not wise to build in the first place, and its even less wise to do it now. And it likely would not be happening if we all werent subsidizing the process.Miami is a ticking time bomb. The loss will be many, many times greater than the cost of prevention. Yet we havent been wise and smart enough to invest in our present infrastructure, no less build new flood control measures. On the other hand, someday my central Florida homestead will be prime waterfront prop-erty. Not sure if it will be the Atlantic or the Gulf „ maybe both! Steve Hubschman, PaisleyLETTERS TO THE EDITORJustices who actually believe in the Constitution are now a majority on the Supreme Court and could maybe hang in there for a couple of decades. And some leftists are scared to the point of wanting to redefine the institution into a mud puddle. After all, its now going to be trickier for ideological supremacists to sidestep the rule of law, and yes, some of the proposed revisions would do just that. But the disabling project still must go on, the bold and dangerous say, and, if that requires an eviscerated republic, please understand that, in some minds, a more nagging issue is to assure unhampered, socialistic, big-government power. The fear of the moment emanates largely from Brett Kavanaugh squeezing through Democratic mania to get on the court. The Democratic senators violated every other rule in the book in the early going as they kept the committee chairman from even completing a sentence. Among the spectators were zanies screeching inanities as proof of their adulatory citizenship. Then came the last-minute allegations, including the assertion that, 36 years ago, Kavanaugh as a teenager had attempted rape of a teenage girl. The deeply troubled woman making the charge elicited sympathy with her surely sincere tearfulness, but she had been callously manipulated by political activists. A vital document was kept secret, the story did not add up and evidence was lacking. Imagine that this becomes the way of things and that, at some point, we have women telling us about every other Democratic congressman groping them, forcibly kissing them and attacking them except that, wait a minute, there is no evidence and none of it adds up and these women happen to be Republicans. Well, so what? Since the hearings, it has been maintained that Kavanaugh lied even though the particularities have been refuted to the degree possible. It is said we saw a terrible temperament in the last session, but imagine that you and your family were standing at cliffs edge, that a bevy of sword-swingers was closing in on you, that you were armed with just a stick and poked them occasionally. I am not horrified. The fact is that Kavanaughs exemplary life and professionalism have been praised by just about everyone who has known him well and that he is nowhere near the extremist some pretend he is. In a sterling speech, Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine made as much clear, noting that he had testified he would support rulings on gay marriage, Obamacare, Roe v. Wade and checks on presidential power. In his 12 years on the D.C. Court of Appeals, she observed, he had voted the same as Judge Merrick Garland 93 percent of the time. Garland, of course, was President Barack Obamas Supreme Court nominee who did not even get a hearing from the Republicancontrolled Senate for almost a year. And its not as if a 7 percent difference cannot be significant. But that hardly justifies a pronounced wish to impeach Kavanaugh, thus wrecking our checks-andbalances system. The Constitution allows the proceeding only for misdeeds committed as a justice, and if you get into a back-and-forth game, the court could soon be little more than a political tool. It would be hard to pull impeachment off, but, with Democrats in control of both congressional houses and the presidency, an easy possibility would be packing the court, as in adding justices to put your druthers in command. The Constitution does not prohibit as much. What does is avoidance of havoc, keeping court politics at a minimum and love of America. Suggested term limits would make the judges more amenable to popular sentiment over what the law says and the idea of states disobeying the court would help make tyranny king. True enough, President Donald Trump as the GOP leader is a collection of widely denied positives here offset by atrocious negatives over there, and therefore his toughest critics are saying lets forget civility, promote threatening mobs, cheer on scare-mongering Antifa thugs and dismember government to better suit our objectives.

A8 Friday, October 19, 2018 | President threatens severe consequences if Saudis are found to have murdered journalistBy Matthew Lee and Darlene SupervilleThe Associated PressWASHINGTON President Donald Trump acknowledged Thursday it certainly looks as though missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi is dead, and he threatened very severe consequences if the Saudis are found to have murdered him. His warning came as the administration toughened its response to a disap-pearance that has sparked global outrage.Before Trump spoke, the administration announced that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin had pulled out of a major upcoming Saudi investment conference and a U.S. official said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had warned the Saudi crown prince that his credibility as a future leader is at stake.Pompeo said the Saudis should be given a few more days to finish and make public a credible investigation before the U.S. decides how or if to respond. Trumps comments, however, signaled an urgency in completing the probe into the disappearance of the journalist, last seen entering the Saudi Con-sulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2.The messaging underscored the administrations concern about the effect the case could have on relations with a close and valuable strategic partner. Increasingly upset U.S. lawmakers are con-demning the Saudis and questioning the seriousness with which Trump and his top aides are taking the matter, while Trump has emphasized the billions of dollars in weapons the Saudis pur-chase from the United States.Turkish reports say Khashoggi, who had writ-ten columns critical of the Saudi government for The Washington Post over the past year while he lived in self-imposed exile in the U.S., was killed and dismembered inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul by members of an assassination squad with ties to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The Saudis have dismissed those reports as baseless but have yet to explain what happened to the writer.Trump, who has insisted that more facts must be known before making assumptions, did not say on what he based his latest statement about the writers likely demise.Asked if Khashoggi was dead, he said, It certainly looks that way. ... Very sad.Asked what consequence Saudi leaders would face if they are found to be responsible, he replied: It will have to be very severe. Its bad, bad stuff. But well see what happens.Vice President Mike Pence said earlier in Colorado that the world deserves answers about what happened to Khashoggi, and those who are responsible need to be held to account.In Istanbul, a leaked surveillance photo showed a man who has been a member of the crown princes entourage during trips abroad walking into the Saudi Consulate just before Khashoggi vanished there timing that drew the kingdoms heir-apparent closer to the columnists apparent demise.Turkish officials say Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb flew into Istanbul on a private jet along with an autopsy expert Oct. 2 and left that night.In Washington, Pompeo, who was just back from talks with Saudi and Turkish leaders, said of the investigations in Istanbul:Trump concedes Khashoggi likely deadPresident Donald Trump talks to reporters before boarding Air Force One on Thursday at Andrews Air Force Base, Md., en route to campaign stops in Montana, Arizona and Nevada.

The Bulldogs will look to smooth out any rough edges that might be left today at 7 p.m. when they wrap up the regular season against West Palm Beach Berean Christian at Bulldog Stadium. I knew we could be a good team,Ž said Tackett as he watched his team prepare for Tuesdays practice. We played Wildwood, which was undefeated in the regular season last year, and Seffner Christian, which is ranked (No. 1) in the latest state rankings. And we did that on purpose ƒ to help us get ready for this time of the year.Now, I think we know how to handle adversity better than in the past.ŽLast year, the Bulldogs cruised through the Sunshine State Athletic Conference regular season with an 8-0 record, outscoring its opposi-tion 293-122, and opened the postseason with an 18-13 win against Bradenton Christian.However, MDCAs second-round game against Jupiter Christian was a differ-ent story. The Eagles jumped on the Bulldogs early and built a 42-3 lead en route to a 42-10 win, ending the Bulldogs season.Because we didnt have a lot of adversity during the regular season last year, I think it kind of shocked a lot our guys when we fell behind against (Jupiter Christian),Ž Tackett said. Our kids didnt know how to respond because they never had to during the season. Now, I think we do.ŽThrough the early season struggles, Tackett said he never got frustrated with his team. He saw the big picture and understood the emotional peaks and valleys were part of the process that all success-ful programs must endure on their way to the top.Thats not to suggest Tack-ett believes the Bulldogs have reached the summit in the SSAC.He knows that's not the case. Not yet.But he knows MDCA is MDCA looks at big picture East Ridges Nicole Workman hits one over the net at the district championship game against Windermere on Thursday in Clermont. [CINDY SHARP/CORRESPONDENT] East Ridge rallies to win district title in 5 setsBy Frank Jolleyfrank.jolley@dailycommercial.comCLERMONT „ Great teams arent always great ƒ theyre just great when they have to be.That was never more apparent than during Thurs-days Class 8A-District 5 championship volleyball match between East Ridge and Windermere.In a five-set thriller that featured enough ebb and flow to satisfy the most fickle of fans, East Ridge fell behind before battling back to win the final two sets for a 3-2 win in front of a raucous crowd in the East Ridge gym.Set scores were 25-23, 21-25, 22-25, 25-16 and 15-12.The deciding fifth set was the match rolled into 15 furious points. Early on, the lead changed hands on nearly every serve. With the match tied a 10-all, East Ridge junior Naomi Cabello redirected a shot to an open spot on the floor for an 11-10 lead.A double-hit by Windermere opened the Knights advantage to 12-10. Following a kill by Ana Julia Bleeker for the Wolverines, Kyanna Pacheco unloaded her third kill of the set to put East Ridge back up by two at 13-11.Following an exchange of serves, Cabello unloaded the game-winning kill to give East Ridge the district title.With the win, East Ridge improved to 24-0 on the season. The Knights will host the District 6 runnerup in the Class 8A-Region 2 quarterfinals at 7 p.m. Wednesday.It seemed appropriate the match went the distance. Earlier this season, East Ridge and Windermere went five sets at Windermere Rising to the occasion By Robbie AndreuGatehouse MediaGAINESVILLE „ Floridas quick turnaround in Dan Mullens first season has surprised many around the country and in the SEC, but dont count Georgia coach Kirby Smart among the surprised. He could see this coming.Im not surprised at all,Ž Smart said Wednesday on the SEC coaches telecon-ference. Theyve got talent. Theyve got good football players. They had good foot-ball players last year.ŽSmarts Bulldogs drummed the Gators 42-7 last season. A day later, UF parted ways with embattled head coach Jim McElwain.Georgia will be facing a much different Florida team on Oct. 27 in Jacksonville, Smart said.Theyre extremely athletic on defense,Ž he said. Theyve got one of the pre-mier secondary cover guys. They do a tremendous job on their offensive line. Theyre huge. They brought in two new receivers (Van Jefferson and Trevon Grimes) that are as good as anybody in the league, on top of the wide-outs they already had.Georgia coach not surprised by Floridas 61 startGeorgia coach Kirby Smart talks to his players during the “ rst half Saturday against LSU in Baton Rouge, La.

[CINDY SHARP/CORRESPONDENT] See TITLE, B4By Genaro C. ArmasThe Associated PressMILWAUKEE „ Wade Miley, take two.And this time, the Milwaukee Brewers left-hander figures to see more than one batter in his next start in the NL Championship Series.It comes on Friday night when Miley will try to help the Brewers stave off elimination, down 3-2 to the Los Angeles Dodgers.Miley goes back to the hill two days after being lifted after facing leadoff hitter Clay Bellinger in Game 5 in a designed move by manager Craig Counsell. The Dodgers are going with left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu in a rematch of the Game 2 starters."I think I'll be fine. Just got to go out and make pitches," Miley said at Dodger Stadium after the Brewers fell 5-2 Wednesday.The last pitcher to start back-to-back games in the same postseason series was George Earnshaw of the Philadelphia Athletics in the 1930 World Series, according to STATS. Earnshaw tossed seven shutout innings in Game 5 before pitching a complete game two days later, allowing one run in a win that took the series. Can you top that, Wade? "I started the end of an All-Star break and the other side of it," Miley said.Not quite the same. Miley got the last start against the Dodgers, and was pulled after a five-pitch walk.Reliever Brandon Woodruff did the bulk of the Brewers' initial "out-getting" after coming in to face the second batter, Justin Turner. Wood-ruff allowed three runs, two earned, along with five hits and a walk while fanning eight in taking the loss after going 5 ‡ innings.Brewers, Miley try to deny DodgersSee BREWERS, B4

The bad news is that Eustis now faces the toughest test in the district when the Panthers take on Orlando Jones.This is the second season that Jones has been in the district and the Tigers have yet to lose a district game, going 4-0 last season while outscor-ing its opponents 212-10.It doesnt look like Jones has fallen off much this season with the Tigers one district game so far being a 50-14 drubbing of fellow district power Orlando Bishop Moore. Jones is currently second in the Class 5A-Region 4 playoff rankings and is ranked sixth in the state in Class 5A.Eustis is 13th in the region for playoff rankings and could really use a huge upset to bolster its hopes of making the playoffs.Jones is coming off a 34-0 win over Tampa Carrollwood Day last week while Eustis had a bye week. The Panthers last game was a 45-14 loss to South Lake on Oct. 5.Eustis is led by senior running back Rashon Scott, who has rushed for 1,330 yards and eight touchdowns while averaging 10 yards per carry. The Panthers have rushed for 1,978 yards this season and averaged 7.2 yards per carry.Next week Eustis hosts Bishop Moore while Jones hosts Tavares. POINCIANA (2-5) at TAVARES (2-5)7 p.m.Last week, Tavares lost to Orlando Bishop Moore 51-7 and Poinciana beat Jacksonville Christs Church Academy 27-21.Last year, Tavares beat Poinciana 43-15.This is a non-district game „ Poinciana is an FHSAA Independent. In past seasons, Poinciana was a member of Class 5A-District 13 and this was a district contest. This will mark Tavares third game with Gavin Jones as interim head coach. It is also home-coming in Tavares for the Bulldogs. Jones said the Bulldogs are working to improve in every phase of the game. He said a lot of time this week has been spent concentrating on the basics, including taking care of the football. Before the Bishop Moore game, Jones added a number of junior var-sity players to the varsity roster, many of whom saw action on special teams.Jones said Poinciana is improvedŽ over last year and enters this week on a two-game winning streak.We have a good group of young players here,Ž Jones said. They deserve to be successful after everything theyve been through and with this being homecoming, we really want to win this week for all our seniors. Theyve really stepped up and provided a lot of leadership in the second half of the season. I think everyone on the team wants to win this one for the seniors.ŽNext week, Tavares will play at Orlando Jones in a Class 5A-13 game before wrapping up the season at home on Nov. 2 against Lecanto. PORT ORANGE ATLANTIC (5-1) at MOUNT DORA (3-4)7 p.m.Last week, Mount Dora lost to South Sumter 42-28 and Port Orange Atlantic beat Kissimmee Tohopekaliga 34-0.Last year, Mount Dora blasted Atlantic 54-16.Both teams are Class 4A programs, but are in different regions. Mount Dora is in Region 2 and the Sharks are members of Region 3. Despite that, both teams likely need to win this game to hold on to hope of advancing into the playoffs. Mount Dora currently is ninth in the Region 2 standings with a PPR of 31.00, leaving it nearly four points behind sixth-place South Sumter. In Region 3, Atlantic (35.50) trails sixth-place Lake Placid (35.75) by less than a point. In Class 4A, the top six teams in each region advance to the postseason.In last weeks loss to South Sumter, Mount Dora running back Isayah Hatter ran for 211 yards on 22 carries with two touchdowns. For the season, Hatter has run for 987 yards and scored 16 touchdowns. Quarter-back Tyler Schwarz threw for 134 yards against the Raiders with two touchdowns, giving him 1,150 yards passing and 11 touchdowns with only two interceptions.The Hurricanes have struggled all season with injuries. Tim Newbold leads the team with 51 tackles.Next week, Mount Dora will play at Lakeland Tenoroc before wrapping up the regular season at home on Nov. 2 against Kissimmee Gateway. KEYSTONE HEIGHTS (3-3) at THE VILLAGES (7-0)7 p.m.The Villages tries for a school record this week as the Buffalo look to go to 8-0 for the first time in school history with a win over Keystone Heights.The last time The Vil-lages started a season with a 7-0 record was in 2010 when the Buffalo went 9-1 in the regular season. The Villages beat Key-stone Heights for its sixth straight win in that 2010 season.The Buffalo posted their fourth shutout of the season last week in a 50-0 drubbing of Interlachen, limiting the Rams to minus-3 yards rushing and 10 yards of total offense.The Villages currently holds the fourth position in the playoff rankings for Class 4A-Region 2 while Keystone sits in seventh place in the region, one spot out of a playoff posi-tion. The Villages has more than a three-point edge on the Indians in the playoff rankings.Keystone Heights is coming off a 34-20 win over Wildwood last week and brings a run-heavy offense to The Range. Junior Nick Channell has rushed for 969 yards and eight touchdowns while Ty Friedlin has rushed for 625 yards and nine score. Overall, Keystone Heights has rushed for 1,829 yards and 20 touchdowns while averaging 305 yards per game on the ground. The Indians have only thrown for 72 yards this season with three interceptions and no touchdowns.The Villages travels to play at Wildwood next week before wrapping up the regular season with a home game against Orlando First Academy. SOUTH LAKE (4-3) at OCALA FOREST (3-4)7 p.m.After stumbling a little in the weeks following an injury to star running back Kelley Joiner Jr., South Lake has begun to hit its stride with back-to-back easy victories.This week the Eagles look to make it three in a row when they face Class 6A-District 5 opponent Ocala Forest.If the playoffs started today, South Lake would be in the postseason field. But the Eagles have little margin for error with sev-eral teams in the region within striking distance.South Lake is coming off a 49-16 win over Lees-burg in a game where the Eagles were in control throughout. Quarterback Baylee Heuser threw for 296 yards and three touchdowns while hitting 17 of 22 passes. He added a fourth score on a short run.South Lake also got a big lift from third-string run-ning back Zach Martin as the senior rushed for 154 yards and two touch-downs on 24 carries.Forest comes into the game on a three-game losing streak, including last weeks 20-17 loss to Lake Weir.Senior running back Lamarkces Bassett leads a strong ground game for the Wildcats and has rushed for 680 yards and eight touchdowns while averaging 7.5 yards per carry. Forest has totaled 1,590 yards with 17 touch-downs on the ground this year.South Lake hosts Gainesville next week. EAST RIDGE (2-5) at ORLANDO EDGEWATER (7-0)7 p.m.In the early part of the season, East Ridge had trouble putting its oppo-nents away. That has not been the case the last two weeks as the Knights played tough in the second half in an eight-point vic-tory over Oviedo Hagerty two weeks ago and then blew the game wide open in the second half in last weeks 64-28 win over Ocala West Port.This week it will likely take four quarters of near-perfect football if East Ridge is to pull off the upset against Edgewater, the seventh-ranked team in the state in Class 7A. Edgewater has rolled to seven straight wins while outscoring its opponents 309-100. In Class 7A-District 4, Edgewater is 4-0 and has outscored its opponents 198-45. The Eagles are coming off a 42-7 win over Lake Min-neola last week.East Ridge is led by junior running back Kye-andre Magloire, who has rushed for 777 yards and 11 touchdowns on 117 carries, averaging 6.6 yards per carry. Six of Magloires touchdowns came last week in the win over West Port when he rushed for 215 yards on 27 carries. His six touch-downs broke the school record set in 2008 by Jeremy Wright.This is the first of three straight road games for the Knights to wrap up the regular season. East Ridge plays at Lake Howell next week and then finishes the regular season on Nov. 2 at South Lake. CRYSTAL RIVER (7-1) at SOUTH SUMTER (4-4)7:30 p.m.Last week, South Sumter beat Mount Dora 42-28 and Crystal River beat Brooksville Central 45-0. Last year, Crystal River beat South Sumter 21-7. This game involves two potential playoff teams. South Sumter is sixth in Class 4A-Region 2 and Crystal River is fifth in Class 5A-Region 2. A win for either team likely will provide a big boost to their postseason chances. South Sumter coach Ty Lawrence said the key for the Raiders will be containing Crystal Rivers Deandre Parker. The senior has run for 1,246 yards this season, includ-ing a single-game high of 230 yards in Week 2, a 35-32 win against Ocala West Port.For the Raiders, running backs Malachi Presley ran for 140 yards and Trenton Taylor had 129 yards in last weeks come-from-behind win against Mount Dora. In addition, Douglas Sharp returned the open-ing kickoff 93 yards for a touchdown and defensive back Christian Caruso had a 26-yard pick six.This is Senior Night for the Raiders.Next week, South Lake will wrap up the regular season at St. Petersburg. LAKE MINNEOLA (4-3) at OCALA WEST PORT (1-7)7 p.m.Last week, Lake Minneola lost to Orlando Edgewater 42-14 and Ocala West Port lost to East Ridge 64-28.Last year, Lake Minneola beat West Port 29-6.This is a Class 7A-Region 1 contest. With three games remaining, Lake Minneola must win out to have any hope of reaching the postseason. The Hawks currently hold down 13th place in the Region 1 standings with a PPR of 34.57. Neptune Beach Fletcher (37.29) is in eighth place „ in Class 7A, the four district champions in each region along with the next four highest PPR move on.Lake Minneola coach Walter Banks said the first half of last weeks loss to Edgewater was the worst half of football Ive ever been part of.Ž He said the Hawks have spent most of the week correcting the issues that hampered them ƒ namely tackling and maintaining their mental focus. We shouldnt be having those kind of problems this late in the season, but at least they are issues that are correctable. Well never stop trying to get better.ŽThis game could present the Lake Minneola offense with a chance to shine ƒ in West Ports last two games, the Wolf Pack have given up 141 points.Next week, Lake Min-neola will play at Ocoee in a Class 7A-Region 1 (Dis-trict 4) game. The Hawks will wrap up the regular season on Nov. 2 at home against Leesburg. INTERLACHEN (2-5) at WILDWOOD (4-4)7 p.m.Last week, Wildwood lost to Keystone Heights 34-20 and Interlachen lost 50-0 to The Villages.Last year, Wildwood beat Interlachen 29-22. After last weeks loss to Keystone Heights, Wild-wood dropped from sixth place to seventh in the Class 1A-Region 4 rankings. The Wildcats have a PPR of 33.50, .21 points behind Williston in sixth place. With The Villages looming in its regularseason finale next week, two wins to close out the regular season likely will be more than enough to lift the Wildcats into the postseason for the second straight year.Against Keystone Heights, Wildwoods Marcus Niblack had a complete all-around game ƒ two receptions for 75 yards, including a 71-yard touchdown reception, and a 69-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.Interlachen was held to minus-3 yards of rushing and 10 yards of total offense against The Villages.Next week, Wildwood will wrap up the regular season against The Vil-lages in Death Valley. UMATILLA (0-8) at PIERSON TAYLOR (2-5)7 p.m.Last week, Umatilla lost to Crescent City 45-0 and Pierson Taylor lost to Daytona Beach Father Lopez 42-14.Last year, Pierson Taylor beat Umatilla 49-0.Umatillas struggles, particularly on offense, continued last week when the Bulldogs were shutout for the fourth time this season. The Bulldogs lack of success isnt from a lack of effort, according to coach Ryan Mills. After the loss to Crescent City, Mills said a combination of youth, inexperience and injuries have plagued the Bulldogs all season. When youre young and deal with the injuries like we have the past couple of years, things go wrong,Ž Mills said.And things wont get any easier against Pierson Taylor. The Wildcats are led by running back Jaden Reeves, who has rushed for more than 1,125 yards and 12 touchdowns this season.The Bulldogs enter Fridays game as the 11th-ranked team in Class 4A-Region 2, based on the Florida High School Ath-letic Associations Playoff Power Rankings. Uma-tilla, with a PPR of 25.63, trails 10th place Trenton (28.43) by nearly three points.Next week, Umatilla will wrap up the regular season on the road against Eustis. FIRST ACADEMY OF LEESBURG (4-2) at ORANGEWOOD CHRISTIAN (5-2)7 p.m.First Academy of Leesburg wraps up the regular season by travel-ing to Maitland to take on Orangewood Christian. The Eagles are coming off a thrilling 45-44 win over Eagles View in Jackson-ville last week.Senior quarterback Sammy Punt led First Academy to the win by rushing for 130 yards and a touchdown and throw-ing for three touchdowns. Junior Treavon Cummings added 41 yards rushing and a touchdown.Junior Justin Sombelon led the defense with eight tackles.First Academy has won four of its last five games.Orangewood Christian comes into the game having won two in a row, including last weeks 38-0 victory over Central Flor-ida Christian Academy.The Rams have a runheavy offense, having piled up 1,580 yards on the ground with 20 touch-downs and an average of 8.8 yards per carry. Junior Anthony Brown leads the way for Orangewood with 789 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns while aver-aging 10.1 yards per carry.PREVIEW CAPSULES FOR TONIGHTS HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL GAMES


B4 Friday, October 19, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comBy Tim ReynoldsThe Associated PressORLANDO, Fla. „ Mo Bamba heard his name over Orlandos public address system for the first time during introductions, and waved his arms to the crowd asking for their cheers. Then the game started.He didnt have to solicit noise anymore.Welcome to the NBA, rookie class of 2018-19. There were 31 newcomers who got their first official playing time Wednes-day, the initial hectic night on this seasons schedule. Some of those debuts were forget-table, some barely noticeable, but a few „ like No. 1 pick Deandre Ayton in Phoenix, the No. 6 overall pick in Bamba and even undrafted rookie Allonzo Trier in New York „ stood out.Felt pretty good,Ž Bamba said. It was everything I expected it to be.ŽHe wasnt the only rookie smiling Wednesday.Ayton made his first three shots and finished with 18 points, 10 rebounds and six assists as Phoenix eased past Dallas. Bamba was clutch for Orlando, putting together a 13-point, seven-rebound, two-block effort in the Magic win over Miami. And maybe it was fitting „ Ayton and Trier had plenty of big nights together at Arizona as collegians last season, and they had another one Wednesday, albeit about 2,400 miles apart.Trier had 15 points for the Knicks in their easy win over Atlanta, two of those points coming on a down-the-lane dunk where he went either past or over four Hawks play-ers, a play that even had New York coach David Fizdale celebrating.Some things happen in a game sometimes and you just go, Whoa,Ž Fizdale said.After two nights of this season, 35 players have made their NBA debuts. Thats just the first of many waves; 119 rookies got into at least one game last season, a figure helped mightily by the emer-gence of two-way contracts. Last seasons newcomer total was the leagues highest since 1949-50 when 120 debuted „ in large part because what was the 12-team BAA the year before became the 17-team NBA that season.Atlantas Trae Young, the No. 5 pick in the draft, made his first NBA shot. The make was a notable event for Young, who said that he airballed his first shot attempt in high school, in college and at the NBA Summer League in July. Progress, indeed.This is just one of many,Ž Young said, not sounding worried about the Hawks rocky opener.None of the rookies so far have had monster numbers, but then again, those are rare in debuts.The record for points by someone in his first game is held by Wilt Chamberlain, who scored 43 for the Philadelphia Warriors at Madison Square Garden against the Knicks on Oct. 24, 1959. A year later, Oscar Robertsons first NBA game resulted in his first triple-double 21 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists. LeBron James had 25 in 2003, two months shy of his 19th birthday.The RookiesWelcome to the NBA: Ayton, Bamba, Trier sparkle in debutsOrlando center Mo Bamba celebrates during a game against the Heat on Wednesday in Orlando, Fla. The Magic won 104-101. [STEPHEN M. DOWELL/ORLANDO SENTINEL] Counsell explained that the unconventional move was an effort to get the best matchups. The Dodgers led off with lefty-hitting Clay Bell-inger before going with three straight right-handers in the lineup. They had one other lefty in the starting lineup, power hitter Max Muncy.Results were mixed. Los Angeles was held scoreless until the fourth, then broke through with five runs over the next three innings to move within one win of a return trip to the World Series.This was the latest extension of the Brewers' pitching-by-committee strategy in the postseason. Milwaukee is playing to one of its strengths, which is a deep, hard-throwing bullpen. More teams around the league picked up on the maneuver after the Tampa Bay Rays started using bullpen days to get through some games this season.When asked, Counsell said that he didn't think that lifting Miley after one batter broke down baseball norms or trust between opposing managers. He pointed to teams using pinch-hitters to replace a starter after just one at-bat, similar to what Dodgers man-ager Dave Roberts has done with the right-handed hit-ting David Freese and Muncy at first base."We're using our roster, we're using our full roster, I think that's what all teams are doing in the playoffs," Counsell said Thursday, a day off as the series shifts back to Miller Park.In Houston, Astros manager AJ Hinch said such pitch-ing strategies are "fair game" now."Craig has been doing it since Sept. 1. (Tampa manager) Kevin Cash has been doing it since May," Hinch said before Game 5 of the AL Championship Series against the Boston Red Sox.Hinch noted that the Brew-ers used reliever Dan Jennings to start a game against the Cardinals on Sept. 24 before pulling Jennings after retiring the first batter."You can't be caught off guard with that stuff. (The Dodgers) weren't caught off guard," Hinch said."You're allowed to play all your players whenever you want to. So I think it's ludicrous to think that it's ... an ethical issue when you're playing your players how you want," Hinch added.For the 31-year-old Miley, the back-to-back starts are another highlight in a turnaround season with Mil-waukee. Miley was 5-2 with a 2.67 ERA over 80-plus innings in 16 regular-season starts after joining the club on a minor league contract in spring training.He hasn't given up a run in 10 ‡ innings this postseason. If it were up to him, Miley would stay in as long as possible."Craig's the manager, he makes the final decision," Miley said this week, "but at the same time, you want to make it as tough on them as possible. We try to go out there and do the best we can." BREWERSFrom Page B1Their backs are really physical downhill runners. I think Dan is really pleased with the backfield hes got. And they have great tight ends.Across the board, they have really good football play-ers. Florida always has. So, the turnaround hasnt come as a shock to me because Dan and his staff do a great job.ŽOne of Mullens most important jobs has been the development of quarter-back Feleipe Franks, which is ongoing. Hes a much differ-ent quarterback than the one who looked lost in last years loss to Georgia. In that game, he completed just seven of 19 passes for 30 yards with an interception.Hes playing a lot better,Ž Smart said. Just like every quarterback in this league, when you get experience, you gain the ability to make deci-sions. Ive seen this young man grow from a kid that I recruited a long time ago to become a better player.Hes very sharp. Hes much more disciplined with the ball. He protects the ball better. He has better playmak-ers. Hes got people around him. Hes got wideouts that make plays. Hes got good tight ends.When youve got an arse-nal like that, along with the run game, it makes you a weapon.ŽSince losing to Kentucky in the second game of the season, Franks and the Gators have won four consecutive SEC games, three on the road. UF enters next weeks game against the Bulldogs with a 6-1 record and a path to Atlanta and the SEC Championship Game.Mullen was asked Wednes-day if hes surprised at where the Gators are halfway through his first season. I dont know that Im surprised and I dont know if this is where I expected us to be. It is what it is,Ž Mullen said. You look at what your guys do well and what they do poorly and you keep trying to improve on that. Im not disappointed with where we are. I still think we have a lot of things we have to get better at in every phase of the game and in the program as a whole. Im certainly not disappointed with how this team is progressing.Ž Mullen said what hes most pleased about is how the Gators have come together as a team over the course of the season.Thats a really important thing for us and for the pro-gram,Ž he said. Our guys are learning how to go play the team game. If you look at how weve won football games. We havent won with just defense, havent won with just offense.Weve found several dif-ferent ways to win games and weve done it as a full team. Thats been a big plus that our guys have bought into that and believe in that team concept.ŽThis is a much different team than the one that was starting to disintegrate at this time a year ago.Maybe thats why Mullen isnt even watching tape of last years one-sided loss to Georgia.When asked how much he can take from that game, he had a one-word answer. Nothing,Ž Mullen said. GEORGIAFrom Page B1closer to it now than in August.Were not going to outtalent many teams, so we have to find an advantage somewhere else,Ž Tackett said. We have to work ƒ outwork ƒ every team we play and these kids do that every day. Even when they were frustrated early on when we werent winning, they continued to work and that has begun to pay off.ŽCertainly, the Bulldogs offense has found its stride. MDCA has outscored its opposition 110-6 over the last two games and 211-29 during the four-game win-ning streak.Against Spring Hill Bishop McLaughlin last week, the Bulldogs attempted only one pass „ incomplete „ and compiled 537 yards on the ground. In many ways, MDCAs single-wing attack is running with nearly the same level of efficiency and proficiency as Class 8A state powerhouse Apopka.Thats an appropriate comparison since Apopka coach Rick Darlington taught Tackett and Bulldogs offensive coordinator Matt McGonigal the nuances of the offense. Tackett said he speaks with Darlington on a weekly basis and tries to stealŽ everything he can by listening to everything Darlington has to say.Rick has won three state championships at Apopka and hes the guru of the single wing,Ž Tackett said. We just try to shut up and listen to what he has to say. Theres no reason to make tweaks to anything Rick Darlington says. It has been the perfect offense for us because players have to be selfless to run it successfully ƒ and thats one of our core principles.ŽDespite the Bulldogs' dominant run over the past month, Tackett refuses to look ahead. The postseason will be there once the regu-lar season ends, so his focus „ and that of his players „ is to get ready for Berean Christian.It might be boring, but our goal is to get better every day were on the field,Ž Tackett said. We want each practice to be better than the last and to go 1-0 every Friday night. Our kids have done everything weve asked of them since practice began, even when the wins werent coming early in the season.Now they know what it takes to win.Ž MDCAFrom Page B1before the Knights prevailed.Over the course of the regular season and district tournament, East Ridge lost five sets and four were to the Wolverines, who will play the District 6 champions on the road Wednesday. Winder-mere heads into regional play with an 18-6 record.In the first set, East Ridge seemed out of sync until finding its groove late. The Knights were able to use a mix of power and finesse to keep Windermere off balance.Back-to-back kills by Skyler Ralstin put the Knights up 24-23, and an unforced error by Windermere gave East Ridge the set.Windermere regrouped and won the next two sets by giving the Knights a taste of their own medicine.With its proverbial back against the wall and unbeaten season at stake, East Ridge regrouped in time to win the fourth set in convincing fash-ion and regain the momentum in time for the winner-take-all fifth set.In addition to Ralstin, Pacheco and Cabello, East Ridge got contributions from behind the service line from Taylor Sinopoli, Madison Hilde and Macey McGinnis.

Q: Im considering new tires for my GMC 2500 and want to plan ahead for possible RV usage. This may be either a trailer, fifth wheel or large camper „ jury is still out. What advice do you have for me to consider regarding strength and sizes?„ Larry M. A: Its great to plan ahead like this! Youll be looking at LT (light truck tires) and will want to keep the load range, ply rating and/or load index numbers in mind. Typical } ton and one ton truck tires should be load range E (10 ply) as opposed to D (8 ply) or C (6 ply) found on lighter duty trucks. Often youll see load index numbers instead, such as ‡T, which indicates 3,195 maximum load pounds per tire „ 3,085 if used in dual wheel configuration. (T is the speed rating: 118 mph.) The dual rating considers the possibility of one tire carrying the load should the mate fail. Readily available charts indicate load range vs. pounds per tire, and speed ratings, for other values. Tire size and aspect ratio also contribute to strength. Generally, a larger tire with a taller profile (75 series rather than 70) will carry a higher load rating. For example, my truck came equipped with LT245/75/16E tires (3,042 pounds, ‡S) with a 30.4 inch diameter. When it was time for replacement I upgraded to LT265/75/16E tires (3,415 pounds, ‡R, 31.6 inch diameter), upping the load capacity of the four tires by 1,492 pounds. This was compatible with my rim width and was the largest size I found that would not rub front tires against the fenders during sharp turns. A larger size 70 series tire would have also fit but had about the same load capacity as the originals. Its important to remember that regardless of how sturdy the tires may be, one should not exceed the trucks gross vehicle and rear axle ratings.Q: How critical is it to get a check engineŽ light fixed? Ive noticed a lot of people driving around with this light on.„ Victor A: An illuminated check engine,Ž also called service engine soon,Ž light indicates a fault is occurring in the engine management system that is inferred to cause excessive exhaust emissions. There are perhaps a hundred or more possible causes for this, some more important than others. If the engine runs abnormally at all, immediate service is important, particularly an engine misfire (chugging/bucking/ shaking „ most noticeable on acceleration) which if severe enough | Friday, October 19, 2018 C1 DRIVETom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 Powered by Brad BergholdtUNDER THE HOODHeavy hauling requires picking suitable tires Autoreview: Nissan o ers an all-new Altima for 2019By Larry PrintzTribune News ServiceSANTA BARBARA, Calif. „ Much has been made of the fact that many Americans now drive some form of light truck. Sales of SUVs, crossovers and pickups are closing in on 70 percent of U.S. new vehicle sales. Yes, we have become a nation of truck drivers. But that doesnt mean that cars no longer matter. They do, accounting for 6 million units a year in sales in the United States, of which one-third are midsize cars. (Thats 2 mil-lion units a year for the math adverse.)This is why Nissan redesigned the Altima for 2019 with all-new platform and two new engines with all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive. Given that the Subaru Legacy is the only other all-wheel drive midsize sedan, Nissan has a huge selling advantage in Northern climes. The $1,350 AWD option is available on all models, which include S, SR, SV, SL and Platinum trims. However, its only offered with the base engine, a direct injected 2.5-liter four-cylin-der rated at 188 horsepower. Replacing the previous Altimas 270-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 engine on upper-level SR and Platinum models is the VC-Turbo, the worlds first production variable compression turbocharged engine. The 248-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged engine has been under development for two decades. Its trick? It continuously raises or lowers the pistons reach, changing from 8:1 for high performance to 14:1 for high fuel efficiency. But its only offered with front-wheel drive, not all-wheel drive. Both engines mate to a continuously vari-able automatic transmission.And its safe, thanks to standard Automatic Emergency Braking, Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Intelligent Driver Alertness. A Safety Shield 360 package is optional and adds Automatic Emergency Brak-ing with Pedestrian Detection, Rear Automatic Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and High Beam Assist.On my recent drive in Santa Barbara, Calif., Nissan pro-vided SR and Platinum models for testing.Certainly, the new VC-T engine provides more thrills than its larger non-turbo sibling. Power off the line is strong, and care is needed to avoid squealing tires. The engine and transmission Impressively upscaleThe 2019 Nissan Altima offers a $1,350 AWD option on all models, which include S, SR, SV, SL and Platinum trims. [NISSAN] Vehicle type: Midsize fourdoor sedan Base prices: $23,750-$35,750 Engine: Double-overheadcam 2.5-liter four-cylinder Horsepower: 188 Torque: 180 pound-feet EPA fuel economy (city/ highway): 25-28/35-39 mpg Wheelbase: 111.2 inches Length: 192.9 inches Cargo capacity: 15.4 cubic feet Curb weight: 3,344-3,462 pounds Stats By Robert DufferTribune News ServiceThe 2019 Chevrolet Suburban RST is so far removed from the Chevy Suburbans of the past that it is a different classification altogether: the performance full-size SUV. If you can have performance trucks, why not giant SUVs?The Suburban has been suburbing families and their stuff since 1935, making it the longest running nameplate in continual use. The Suburban of my past is a high school buddys rusted out powder blue on navy truck with ripped vinyl seats and a busted shock so it listed to one side and could haul the whole gang of teens, provided we chipped in for gas money. That was a Suburban, beat up, beloved, and running seemingly forever to its death.By contrast, the 2019 Chevy Suburban RST is a sleek blacked-out night prowler capable of surprising agility and power from a small block V-8 engine like the one used in a Chevy Corvette. Except this vehicle is nearly 6,000 pounds. They say black is slim-ming so it has black wheels, black bumpers, black bow ties „ black everything, even the lettering. Its way too luxuri-ous for any teen, too powerful for the suburban driver, and so ridiculously priced its meant for only the few.At $82,000, it cashes in on the predominant promise in todays new car market: you can have it all, for a price.Last redesigned for 2015, Chevys venerable cash cow has been caught in the crosshairs of Fords impressive assault on the full-size SUV market. The luxury star of the segment is the $90,000 Lin-coln Navigator, which rightly won 2018 North American Truck of the Year, and its more approachable cousin, the Ford Expedition, which pro-vides a great balance of power and efficiency, advanced technology and towing capa-bility. Those vehicles capture the attention of what full-size SUV drivers need.The 420-horsepower RST is not about need; its about Chevy injecting some life in the Suburban before it gets redesigned for 2020.The Rally Sport Truck trim, which appeared in the Tahoe last year, upgrades the engine to a 6.2-liter V-8 EcoTec with a more efficient 10-speed transmission capable of churning out 460 pound-feet of torque (the standard Suburban makes 383 pound-feet with the 5.3-liter engine and six speed trans). The throttle is light to the touch, making the full-sizer feel much smaller. It carries its weight like the big guy in high school who was surprisingly, effortlessly quick.It also gets Chevys performance-oriented active suspension called Magnetic Chevy Suburban RST hauls so much more than people The 2019 Suburban RST Performance Package features a 420-hp, 6.2L V-8 engine, Magnetic Ride Control with performance calibration, and a new Hydra-Matic 10L80 10-speed transmission.

Moreandmore, automakerswantto offershoppersand fansanexperience. B seem well matched, with the transmission doing its best impersonation of a conventional transmission under hard acceleration, and delivering a fun experience. However, it requires premium fuel while returning the lowest fuel economy of any Altima. In contrast, the base engine uses regular unleaded gasoline and returns better fuel economy. But power is merely adequate; it's not nearly as entertaining. If you live in a hilly region, you'll find the 2.5-liter chal-lenged by inclines, especially with the added weight of all-wheel drive. Nevertheless, the transmission feels more linear than before, lacking the rubber banding typically found in CVTs. Regardless of model, comfort and refinement are this car's hallmarks. It's agile and provides impressive grip, and a well-mannered chassis. But it's no sports sedan.The polished demeanor can best be seen in the interior, where a large 8-inch infotain-ment touchscreen anchors the sleek, contemporary instrument panel. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, and the chip set used operates quickly. And techies take note: this might be the only car to offer two USB and two USB-C ports. Cabin trim quality varies from trim to trim, with some evidence that accountants have been at work, but overall quality is satisfying for the price. The cabin itself is roomy both front and rear thanks to a two-inch longer wheelbase, an extra inch in width and overall length, although it's one inch lower.It's wrapped in the finest interpretation yet of Nissan's current design language. While still aggressive, there's a refinement to its appearance that makes it perfect for mid-size sedan duty, dancing on the edge of mild and wild. It's quite a sharp-looking ride.But is it enough to make a crossover shopper give up their ride for an Altima? Most likely not; it's merely an improved version of what has come before. Nevertheless, the 2019 Nissan Altima offers an impressively upscale appearance and feature list at a popular price. That was true of the first Altima in 1993, which looked much like a shrunken Infiniti J30. Six generations on, the 2019 Altima is better in every way. It's clearly Nissan's ultimate Altima.Perhaps it should have been called the Altimate. ALTIMAFrom Page C1 Ride Control, which is also used on Camaro and Corvette. The electronically controlled shocks are more sensitive, reacting quicker to road conditions and driver input than the standard setup. Yet, even with the 22-inch wheels, Suburban RST cruised on the highway with a soft smoothness like that of the Navigator.We used the Suburban like how a Suburban is most often used: ferrying the kids around town then on a long camping weekend. We packed plenty for that wee kend, and since the forecast called for rain, we even brought other families' pop-up canopies. Unlike the Cadillac Escalade, there was plenty of space. Suburban is one of if not the largest in terms of space, which is why I considered moving the kids and pup into the Suburban to sleep after the fourth hour of thunderstorms. But the kids slept through it.Prior to that weekend, when the kids were at school, I appreciated the performance-minded capability but didn't really care. It felt lighter than it should, it turned without the usual boat-like roll of a full-size SUV, but for real performance thrills I'd look elsewhere. It won't pump the adrenaline, but it elic-its a smile.More impressive was Chevy's already good technology. We averaged 19 mpg on the highway thanks to cylinder deactivation, which shuts down half of the eight cylinders while cruising. The enter-tainment package ($3,025), with screens that retract from the ceiling from the midand third-row, was well worth it. The offcenter layout of Chevy's truck functions, on the dash left of the steering wheel took a minute to get used to, but it makes for an uncluttered center. The eight-inch touch screen needs to be larger, but that's what the 2020 will be for. The layered vehicle info display limits any need to go poking and prodding the touch screen. Ford's Sync3 won't age as well as Chevy's infotainment system. Something to con-sider if you plan on holding onto it as long as Suburbans of old.Power third row is essen-tial at this price point, and getting in and out of the seats and reconfiguring them is no problem. The Suburban doesn't feel old, even though it's due for a redesign. RST is overkill for me, but some people have to have all the stuff to keep them as far away from family minivan com-promise as possible. I'm not convinced it's $10,000 better than the Expedition Limited, and the perfor-mance upgrades don't meet the overall package of the Navigator, but for people who need to haul the team and like to be in a hurry, the Suburban RST trim is a fit. SUBURBANFrom Page C1will result in a flashing light. There can be other causes, such as a faulty gas cap seal, that have no effect on engine performance, or perhaps an intermittent fault that only causes brief symptoms. Besides the obvious concern of increased exhaust emissions and possibly reduced fuel economy, one needs to consider the possibility of catalytic converter or engine damage should the engine operate abnormally. With the proliferation of inexpensive code readers and scan tools, it shouldn't be difficult to have the cause quickly checked. A web lookup of the DTC (diagnostic trouble code) can shed light on the possible cause and likely severity of effects „ if any „ on engine performance.

DEAR ABBY: When I was in my rst year of college, my mother divorced my stepdad. "Charlie" was part of my life for 12 years, but since their divorce, she insists I have no contact with him. Charlie visits the state where I now live several times a year to see a friend and invites me to have dinner with him. I do, but because of Mom's demand, I ask him to keep our time together a secret. If she knew we were in contact, I think she would cut me out of her life. Growing up, Charlie was a father gure to me -a very important person in my life. Spending time with him is awkward, but it would feel wrong to never see him again. We were family for many years. I feel that as an adult, I should be able to decide for myself who I stay in contact with. I don't know the whole story about their breakup, and honestly, I don't care to know. Should I honor my mother's wishes and have no more contact with him, or go with my gut and keep him in my life? -FORGIVE OR FORGET OUT WEST DEAR FORGIVE: Go with your gut. As an adult, you do have the right to choose with whom you associate, and your mother should not be insisting upon it with no explanation. DEAR ABBY: I have an etiquette question I can't nd an answer to on the internet. My family travels a great deal, and there are always unattended wheelchairs parked around the airport. My teenage brother thinks it's perfectly ne to get in them and start playing with them, because "no one's using them." The rest of my family thinks it's rude to use a wheelchair as a toy. How do you view this and how should my parents explain it to him? Thanks. -CLAIRE IN FLORIDA DEAR CLAIRE: Assistive devices are not toys, and they should not be "played with" by those who don't need to use them. That's how I view it. Have your parents actually TOLD your brother "No"? If they have and he does it anyway, it's time for them to act like parents, make clear that there are consequences for disobedience and follow through.DEAR ABBY: My son recently graduated with a master's degree. He's a ne young man, did extremely well all through his schooling and has never given his father or me a second of worry. He has not been able to nd a job. It's frustrating for him and discouraging, but we know he will, and we encourage him any way we can. My question is how do I deal with the barrage of inquiries from neighbors, hairstylist, co-workers and friends who constantly ask if he has found a job yet? I am sick of it! It's none of their business, and I never ask them anything about their families' employment. Please help. -MISSOURI MOM DEAR MOM: Handle it this way. Say, "When he does, I'll let you know." Then change the subject. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www. or P.O.

CALL 352-787-0600 OR VISIT DAILYCOMMERCIAL.COM HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR FRIDAY, OCT. 19, 2018:This year you use the unexpected to your benet. You allow surprises to encourage out-of-the-box thinking. If you are single, someone who you think is perfect for you could turn out to be quite the opposite. Dont worry; toward your next birthday, you could meet Mr. or Ms. Right. If you are attached, you and your partner might use some unexpected developments to empower your bond. Life together proves exciting. PISCES encourages you to take a second look at situations.ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) The unexpected runs wild through your plans. You might nd that a loved one is helpful but also might be part of the problem. Use care with your nances. Count your change. Refuse to make a nancial commitment. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Although everything seems to fall into place, you still might view your world as unpredictable. Know that, to many people, you seem to be the source of instability. In a difcult situation, defer to a loved one. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) You receive several calls that encourage a trip in the near future. Ultimately, you will follow through, but know that plans made now could be subject to change. Do not dismiss the importance of your presence at a celebration later today. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) The unexpected continues to be a theme throughout your day. You might wonder about alternatives or ways to make your life somewhat less affected by others. Remember, you have chosen these various people in your life. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Others continue to be highly responsive. Toward midday, you see the need for one-onone conversations at work or in your social life. You get a stronger sense of what is happening around you. An authority gure does a reversal. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Focus on what you need to complete, and make sure that it happens. How you deal with a loved one could substantially change as a result of an unexpected insight. If youre planning to go out of town, dont be surprised if events trip you up. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) When you wake up, your playfulness emerges with you. Nevertheless, you could deny all the work, errands and other such details that need completion. An unexpected surprise could occur when youre dealing another person and nances. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Use someone elses unpredictability to your advantage. You could be very tired and withdrawn. How you see what goes on down the path has a lot to do with the present moment. If you dont like what youre seeing, take nap and then look at it again. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22DEC. 21) Make an important call in the morning, when the other party will be more receptive. Even if you receive a vague answer at rst, allow this person to change his or her mind. Make relaxing plans. The closer you are to home, the happier you will be. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22JAN. 19) Remain aware of your nances and spending. As the day ages, money matters tend to become less important. Understand what is motivating another person. You have the capability of saying no, but why not try to be open to this persons energy? AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) You love being the big personality of your social group. However, you discover that the role is less appealing as the day progresses. Fatigue allows you to be more realistic about your capabilities. A family member shakes up the status quo. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You might feel off. However, once you relax, your energy restores itself. Others sense a difference in you and seek you out. Your smile goes a long way. Be open to inquiries and/or suggestions. Not all of your plans need to reect the same old patterns. | Friday, October 19, 2018 C5 TODAY IS FRIDAY, OCT. 19, the 292nd day of 2018.
