After all, this is a community project," Rogers said.The visioning session will begin with opening remarks by Tavares Mayor Lori Pfister and a rundown on the three sites in the citys downtown entertainment district being considered to house the center.Rogers said the consulting firm has been analyzing the three sites from their topog-raphy, drainage, storm water runoff and traffic patterns.Visitors at the visioning session will be free to visit four stations located through-out the pavilion to hear more about possible plans and give input on the performing arts center, and the library pro-gram and expansion.There will also be a virtual realitystation where people will be able to pop on a pair of glasses, sit back and get a 3-D view of what different layouts would look like.Entertainment will include the Tavares Middle and Tava-res High School jazz bands, a guitarist on the balcony and a harpist on the second floor.

A similar device was found Monday at the New York compound of liberal billion-aire George Soros, a major contributor to Democratic causes. The bombs overtook other campaign news in an already-tense political season, which has included pitched fights over immigration, the Supreme Court and sexual violence against women.The White House quickly condemned the attacks aimed at Democrats and perceived foes of the administration.Pipe bombs sent to Obama, Clintons, CNNWitness statements con ict about Villages brawl that led to deathBy Frank Stanfield frankstanfield@dailycommercial.comTAVARES „ Prosecutors are dropping manslaughter charges against a man accused of hitting another with a running forceŽ punch during a 2016 fight on The Villages Spanish Springs square.Citing new evidence and testimony, the state cannot, in good faith, dispute Brice L.

Circuit Judge Law-rence Semento withheld judgment of guilt. Metcalfe originally had been charged with felony battery after a witness said he kicked Ste-vens in the head when he was lying on the sidewalk.The tragedy unfolded at about9:30 p.m.on June 5, 2016 when four men in a mini-van began circling the square with the sliding door open, shouting insults to people on the sidewalk. One of those verbally abused was Stevens girlfriend, Rachel Buss, who worked with Stevens at McCalls Tavern.When she told him about the incident, Stevens went looking for the culprits, who had by this time parked the van. Stevens found two of the teens and began fighting with them, according to the probable cause affidavit.Hall, who was with Metcalfe about 100 feet away, said Oh [expletive] no,Ž and ran toward the fracas,Ž according to the probable cause affidavit. ƒ with running force [he] struck Stevens in the right side of his face resulting in Manslaughter charges droppedBy Jeffrey CollinsThe Associated PressSIMPSONVILLE, S.C. „ A flimsy little piece of paper that crossed the counter of a convenience store on a country road in South Carolina is now worth $1.537 billion, so lottery officials could hardly be blamed Wednesday if anxiety tinged their excitement.They said a single ticket sold at the KC Mart in Simp-sonville, South Carolina, matched all six numbers to win the Mega Millions jackpot.And unless the winner chooses to come forward, the world may never know who won."Our message to the $1.5 BILLION #Mega Millions jackpot winner: Sign the back of the ticket, place the ticket in a safe location, speak with a trusted advisor and CALL THE LOTTERY at 1-866-736-9819.

They also said there has been no red tide detected along beaches and that the toxic algae was found in the Indian River lagoon.Officials said the low pres-ence of the algae found at Bethune Beach Park poses no health concerns for people.This is an extremely low concentration, less than 1,000 cells/liter, which is officially classified by FWC as not present/background,Ž said Volusia County spokes-woman Joanne Magley in a release. These levels have no anticipated effects.ŽOn Tuesday, the countys staff from Environmental Management took samples from areas near the Hiles and Crawford approaches in New Smyrna Beach, and Granada approach in Ormond Beach.Magley said FWC has requested that personnel from Environmental Management collect weekly samples for the state agency.County spokeswoman Kate Sark that FWC will have test results in about two days.According to Magley, the countys Coastal and Beach Safety divisions will clear the beaches daily of biological debris.There are currently no beach closures within Volusia County; however, staff will be posting cautionary signage informing the public about the potential presence of red tide,Ž Magley said.When red tide is at a level that it kills fish it can also affect people, officials said.Volusia sends red tide tests to stateBy Mark StevensonThe Associated PressHUIXTLA, Mexico „ Thousands of Central American migrants renewed their hoped-for march to the United States on Wednesday, setting out before dawn with plans to travel another 45 miles of the more than 1,000 miles that still lie before them. The five days of walking in the southernmost reaches of Mexico „ after seven days in Honduras and Guatemala „ were beginning to show: Mexican authorities said Wednesday that about 500 migrants had accepted an offer to be bused back to their countries. Many said they were sick or exhausted, especially the children who toddled or were carried along on the march.Still, the size of the caravan „ estimated by the United Nations at more than 7,000 strong „ seemed basically undiminished as the throng set out in darkness cut by occasional flashlights or the spotlights of municipal police who were escorting them.Rosa Duvon of Cofradia Cortes in Honduras was pushing two baby boys, both named Daniel „ a son and a nephew „ in a rickety donated baby carriage over a potholed road at 5 a.m.This thing is going to die,Ž she said of the carriage, pointing to a wobbly back wheel. Still, she vowed to keep going.In worse condition was Maria del Carmen Mejia of Copan, Honduras, who was already sweating profusely before dawn. She carried in her arms 3-year-old Britany Sofia Alvarado, while with her other hand she clutched the hand of Miralia Alejandra Alvarado, 7, who was also sweaty „ and fevered.Miralia isnt well, has a fever. Lets see if they give us a ride up ahead. Im worn out now.Ž But she too pledged to go on. Ive walked a long way. I dont want to return. I want a better future for my children.ŽWhile the group has been discouraged by Mexicos government „ and prompted threats of aid cutoffs for their homelands from U.S. Presi-dent Donald Trump „ they have received an outpouring of help from locals as they pass by.Neighbors have supplied the marchers „ many of them largely penniless „ with food and passersby have stopped to give them rides in cars, pickups, even dump trucks.Such caravans have taken place regularly, if on a smaller scale, over the years, but Trump has seized on the phenomenon this year and made it a rallying call for his Republican base ahead of Nov. 6 midterm elections. Trump has blamed Demo-crats for what he said were weak immigration laws and claimed „ with no evidence „ that MS-13 gang members and unknown Middle East-ernersŽ were hiding among the migrants.Trump later acknowledged there was no proofŽ of the claim Middle Easterners were in the crowd. But he tweeted Wednesday that the U.S. will never accept people coming into our Country illegally!Ž The caravan had advanced about 45 miles since crossing the border from Guatemala and the marchers hoped to trek another 45 miles on Wednesday to the town of Mapastepec.Even if they eventually reach the distant U.S. border, many have low odds of qualifying for asylum: The United States does not con-sider things like fleeing from poverty or gang violence as a qualifying factor.Nearly 1,700 from the cur-rent caravan have already dropped out and applied for asylum in Mexico and hundreds more have decided to return hope. The numbers could thin further as people decide to take their chances in Mexico or strike out on their own.Migrants set out anew on quest to reach USBy Shawn MarshThe Associated PressHADDONFIELD, N.J. „ The woman who created a Thanksgiving staple enjoyed by millions „ the green bean casserole „ has died at age 92. Dorcas Reilly died on Oct. 15 of Alzheimers disease, said Ken Tomlinson of the Hinski-Tomlinson Funeral Home in Haddonfield, New Jersey.Campbell Soup officials said the New Jersey resident was the driving force behind the popular dish, made with green beans and cream of mushroom soup and topped with crunchy fried onions. The company said it is the most popular recipe ever to come out of its corporate kitchen. The recipes website got 2.7 million visits during last years holidays, the company said.The original recipe card was donated to the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2002.Dorcas was an incredible woman, whose legacy will live on for years to come. She will be missed by her Campbell colleagues and all those who were impacted by her creativity and generous spirit,Ž the company said in a statement.Reilly was a Campbell Soup kitchen supervisor in 1955 when she combined the ingredients of the now-legendary green bean casserole for an Associated Press feature.In a 2005 AP interview marking the recipes 50th anniversary, Reilly said she didnt remember having a hand in it because the dish was among hundreds that were created during her time at Campbells. She also helped create a tomato soup meatloaf, a tuna noodle cas-serole and Sloppy Joe-like souperburgers.ŽThe recipe is still a fix-ture on soup-can labels and television commercials. And Reilly said she always kept the ingredients for the casserole on hand in her home „ just in case someone asked her to whip one up.Reilly also noted whenever the company held recipe contests, she would typically see home-madeŽ variations of the soup-can recipe for the casserole.Woman who created green bean casserole dies at 92Central American migrant Cristian pushes a carriage occupied by his daughters, Karen, 5, left, and Beiyi, 4, as they make their way to Mapastepec, Mexico, on Wednesday.

Rupert Holmes wrote the play, and since no one knows how Dickens would have finished the mystery, he leaves it up to the audience to decide.The cast plays a band of colorful Victorian music hall performers at the Music Hall Royale in the two-act play, with the first act setting the stage for the audience vote, which determines the out-come of the second act.Rupert Holmes, who wrote the piece, was able to play upon the time frame and immerse the audience in the Victorian music hall, a full riotous atmosphere of slapstick humor, bad punch lines and lovely ladies in corsets and bustles,Ž said director Beau Mahurin. There is a lot of direct audience interaction both pre-show and during the voting process itself. The fact that the audience does literally have a stake in the outcome of every performance is what makes it special.

unconsciousness and Stevens falling to the ground.ŽHalls attorney, Stacy Youmans, however, filed a motion to dismiss in July.ƒStevens aggressively approached and confronted defendants companions, Dustin Leavy and Aaron I. Solo-mon,Ž the motion stated.Within seconds, Mr. Stevens began striking each repeatedly on their heads and upper bodies. Mr. Stevens then turned to the Defendant, raised his fists, and attempted to strike the Defendant. In that moment, the Defendant reasonably believed death or great bodily harm to himself or his companions was imminent and thus acted in self-defenseƒ,Ž the motion stated.By law, prosecutors must file a traverseŽ counter-motion to such a defense motion.Even assuming that the state could ethically file a traverse to the motion, the likelihood of conviction at trial is extremely minimal, if any, given these subsequent developments in the testimony,Ž prosecu-tors said in their memo.Among the problems with the case was the testimony of the states key witness. Corey Alvut twice failed to show up for a deposition, incurring the wrath of the court with an arrest order for contempt. He wrote a letter of apology to the judge.This is my first time being in trouble, and I can assure you that your jail has succeeded in showing me that this will be my last time as well. It is absolute torment in here.ŽWhen Alvut did give his deposition at the jail, he denied seeing Hall deliver the blow with running force. He testified that they were all standing together at the time Hall struck Stevens,Ž the memo said. ƒ Stevens approached them in an aggressive manner and began to have words with them,Ž the memo said, quoting Alvut, who was watching from across the street.This testimony conflicts with two other essential state witnesses who were with Hall,Ž the prosecutors memo says.Solomon testified that Hall and Metcalfe were about 150 feet away when Stevens approached him and Leavy and asked what kind of car they had been in. When Leavy responded, Stevens began beating Leavy. Solomon stated that he never struck back but was trying to protect himself. Solomon stated that Stevens struck him four or five times on the back of the head, which caused Hall to come run-ning over to Stevens and Leavy to allegedly stop the attack,Ž the state memo said.Leavy testified that Stevens threw the first punch, and said he had Solomon pinned up against some stairs while hitting him repeatedly in the back of the head. He said Hall ran up and said, Stop!ŽLeavy said Hall was standing in place when he hit Stevens, knocking him to the ground. Leavy said he hit him again while Stevens was down.There was conflicting testimony about Metcalfes role, too, Bass said. One witness said he just nudged his head with his foot to see if he was knocked out. Another said he ran up and kicked Stevens in the head.The autopsy said Stevens suffered fractures to the right side of his face and the base of the rear of his skull and mul-tiple fractures to his nasal cavity. The cause of death was blunt force trauma.The idea of full-force running punch, especially if delivered from behind, lent itself to a charge of manslaughter and to felony battery charges against Metcalfe. Now, it appears it may have been the fall that caused the fatal injury.The injuries to the skull were consistent with the victims head striking the hard ground, sidewalk or pavement,Ž the memo said.Stevens himself presented problems for prosecutors. Stevens was the initial aggressor. While being assisted by first respond-ers he denied that any altercation had occurred, declined prosecution and stated that he merely 'fell' at the scene,Ž the memo said.Stevens, of Fruitland Park, diedtwo days later.Weve talked to his family and they understand,Ž Assistant State Attorney Hugh Bass said.Buss could not be reached for comment.

The performers all have two names, the person they portray and the part that person plays when they are performing in the troupe.Jessa Halterman, who plays Alice Nutting who performs as Edwin Drood, said part of the appeal of the play is the audience interaction.We are in the aisles breaking the fourth wall, as we say, speaking directly to the audience before, during intermission, all throughout the show and that is very exciting,Ž she said. And its also fun they get to choose the ending.ŽMelon Patch president, Dustin Lavine, plays Wil-liam Cartwright, chairman of the music hall.I listened to the music and fell in love. I mentioned it to Beau and he said thats one of my dream shows to direct,Ž Lavine said. We put it up to the board, they listened and they were a little on the fence because most people dont know the show and the story is not Oliver Twist,Ž  A Christmas CarolŽ or Great Expectations.Ž So it was a little of a jump on our part, but I think that the idea of the audience truly participating for once and its something they havent seen a whole lot … it hasnt been over-done it's an opportunity to give it a try.ŽCheck out melonpatch-players.org for a video of rehearsals and to get tickets.

It will add to our logo of Choice of Champions,Ž said Councilman Ray Goodgame in an email after the meeting.

Be assured, the people of Florida will be watching.ŽNegron is pushing for a fall groundbreaking and for a goal of three to five years to complete the reservoir.If the government is not up to the task, then we should competitively out-source the project to the private sector and build in financial incentives for early completion,Ž Negron said. The nearly 21million residents of Florida do not want to hear weak excuses about why earlier generations of Americans could apparently solve problems and accomplish goals without tedious procrastination.ŽA Negron-backed bill, signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott in May 2017, allows Florida to bond up to $800million for the reservoir.The bill capped annual state funding at $64million and placed the reservoir on state-owned land rather than private farmland in the Ever-glades Agricultural Area.To make the pro-posal more acceptable to farmers, residents and politicians south of the lake, Negrons plan was redrawn to lower the costs and the bonding amounts. Also thrown in were a number of economic development projects in the Glades region, including an expansion at the Airglades Airport in Clewiston and an inland port in western Palm Beach County.Scott said Tuesday the bill he signed into law will help end the algal blooms on our coasts.Ž But Scott, who is running for U.S. Senate in the Nov. 6 election, added that Congress has failed to properlyŽ fund Ever-glades restoration.Everglades projects should have a 50-50 cost share between the state of Florida and the federal government, yet, thanks to inaction by Congress, the federal government is nearly $1 billion behind on its commitment,Ž Scott said.

Officials also want to know if it should include a Blackbox theater, whether the city should consider a part-nership with a university or other organization and more.Rogers said site selection suggestions will be especially important.Were hoping to narrow the site selection down from three to two based on the input we receive,Ž Rogers said. Drury said he hopes the performing arts center is something officials are hoping they can bring to town in the next three to five years.Funding has not yet been identified, but the city is expecting to apply for grants to help offset the costs.Its going to be an exciting meeting and we look forward to the public participating in this process because we think it will answer a lot of ques-tions and give us a much better idea of what people in our community want,Ž Drury said.Theres a lot to discuss and a lot to vet out,Ž he added.The session is scheduled from 5 pm to 8 pm on Nov. 1 at the Tavares Pavilion by the Lake, located at 200 S.

Its about as much as 20 percent of the $8 billion that state lawmakers have to spend each year.An earlier Mega Millions estimate of $1.6 billion would have been a world record for lotteries, but actual sales came in below the $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot prize shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee in January of 2016.The final total was less than the $1.6 billion estimate,Ž confirmed Carol Gentry, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Lottery, which leads a consortium of state lotteries participating in the Mega Millions jackpot.Estimates are based on his-torical patterns,Ž she explained Wednesday morning in a phone interview with The Associated Press. The jackpots been rolling since it was hit in July in California, but there are few precedents for a jackpot of this size. Typically, about 70 percent of sales occur on the drawing day, so forecast-ing precise numbers in advance can be difficult. Thats why we always use the term estimate.ŽThe ticket is worth about $877.8 million in a lump-sum cash payment, which most winners choose to take, rather than collect the full amount in annual payments over three decades.South Carolina is one of eight states „ along with Delaware, Georgia, Kansas, Maryland, North Dakota, Ohio and Texas „ where winners can remain anonymous. The winner also has up to 180 days to claim the prize.Our board has a policy to protect the winner because of all the risk associated with having that much money,Ž South Carolina Education Lot-tery Director William Hogan Brown told ABCs Good Morning America.ŽSouth Carolinas previous record-holder „ someone who bought a $400 million Power-ball ticket in the Columbia area in 2013 „ never wanted to be identified.Holli Armstrong, a state lottery spokeswoman, said the retailer will get a $50,000 payout. TV trucks and gawkers flooded the parking lot at the KC Mart and Exxon station, which sits at the bend of a road where Greenvilles suburban sprawl gives way to farm fields.The biggest Mega Millions jackpot winner prior to this was a $656 million ticket sold back in 2012, Gentry said, so its a record for Mega Mil-lions and it came very close to breaking the world record of all the jackpots.ŽThe winning numbers were 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 5. The lucky player overcame miserable odds: The chance of matching all six numbers and winning the top prize is 1 in 302.5 million.Mega Millions is played in 44 states as well as Washing-ton, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.Lottery officials and financial managers encourage winners to take time to map out a strategy for investing their hundreds of millions of dollars, and to prepare for security concerns befitting someone who suddenly becomes immensely wealthy.The Mega Millions jackpot grew so large because no player had matched all six numbers and won the top prize since July 24, when 11 co-workers from California won a $543 million prize.Although Tuesdays jack-pot was extraordinarily large, its no fluke. It reflects a trend toward ever-growing lottery prizes due to changes in the game that worsened the odds with hopes that bigger jackpots would result in better sales.Officials with the Powerball game were the first to make that move in October 2015 when changing the odds of winning the jackpot from 1 in 175 million to 1 in 292.2 million. Mega Millions followed suit in October 2017, resulting in the odds worsening from 1 in 259 million to 1 in 302.5 million.While most attention has been on the Mega Millions game, Powerball also has been soaring. The estimated prize for Powerballs annuity option in Wednesday nights drawing is $620 million, with a cash prize of $354.3 million.Some KC Mart customers Wednesday were hoping some Mega Millions luck would rub off as they played the Powerball.Sell me another lucky one. Now I know yall have it!Ž Chase Hatcher said, trading smiles across the counter with Jee and Twinkle Patel. TICKETFrom Page A1 Acts or threats of political violence have no place in the United States,Ž Trump said. This egregious conduct is abhor rent.ŽThats a very biparti-san statement,Ž he said.All the confirmed bombs appeared to come from the same person or persons, said John Miller, the New York Police Departments head of intelligence and counterterrorism, who briefed reporters in New York.The U.S. Secret Ser-vice intercepted a bomb that was addressed to Hillary Clinton at the Chappaqua, New York, home she shares with former President Bill Clinton, and another that was sent to former Presi-dent Obama at his home with Michelle Obama in Washington. A police bomb squad removed still another from CNNs New York headquarters, which was evacuated. BOMBSFrom Page A1

DailyCommercial.com | Thursday, October 25, 2018 A9HAVE YOUR SAYWe welcome signed letters and guest columns. Letters should not exceed 300 words and columns should not exceed 500 words. Columns 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: letters@dailycommercial.com Fax: 352-365-1951 The Property Casualty Insurers Association of America estimates insurance losses from Hurricane Michael will range from $2 billion to $4.5 billion. The huge disparity between the high and low number simply reinforces the scope of loss and the breadth and depth of the damage. The destruction of Michael is so widespread, we cant yet estimate the losses, let alone cope with them or begin an organized effort to fix them. That could take years. Florida is directing an unprecedented push at bringing in outside aid, be it military, state law enforcement or utility companies from across the Southeast. The effort is especially difficult because the help we might usually expect from neighboring states is hampered by the unprecedented damage to our neighbors to the north. Their resources are insufficient to handle the trail of destruction Michael left, as the stubborn storm wrecked a wide swath of Georgia and Alabama „ still as a hurricane. It later set records for damage on its romp up the southeastern states as a powerful tropical storm. At the same time, the Carolinas are still wrestling with the aftermath of Hurricane Florence last month. Against that disastrous backdrop, Florida, to its credit, has put into place a freeze on any property insurance hikes for 90 days. Insurance Commissioner David Altmaier has also locked down any non-renewals or cancellations issued in the days prior to Michael in order to allow policyholders more time to find other coverage. Meanwhile, analysts say Floridas losses will be easily covered by its insurers. That, were told, is because we have a kind of patchwork kind of coverage, predominately by smaller insurers. So, losses to these companies will be less damaging than to larger underwriters. Florida also has Citizens Property, a state-created insurer of last resort. Liberty Mutual, Allstate and State Farm write few, if any policies, in Florida. They began bailing out following Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Estimates say national insurance companies write only 20 percent of Florida policies today. A group of about 50 smaller companies own the market here, and analysts assure us theyre all required to carry reinsurance policies in order to do business here. What that means is the liability is spread out and well-covered. To demonstrate the difficulty of estimating Michaels damage, a Boston-based company that models catastrophes estimates Floridas private insurers will pay out $6 billion to customers. While it is a hefty price tag, it could have been much worse. Because of the relatively sparse population of Northwest Florida, covering the losses appears to be manageable. The destruction was calamitous in those areas hardest hit, Panama City and Mexico Beach, for example. Yet, even at the highest estimate in Florida of $6 billion, its interesting to recall Hurricane Irma caused $50 billion in Florida last year. But it should be noted that the $6 billion figure is for private policies. The National Flood Insurance losses are not included in that total. Its estimated it has 60,000 policies in Floridas hardest-hit counties. Its all a good start, for a huge effort „ at a heartbreaking event.OUR OPINIONFlorida right to freeze insurance ANOTHER OPINION Why no debate? I am disappointed to learn that Representative Jennifer Sullivan has refused to debate her challenger for Florida House District 31, Debra A. Kaplan. The series of local debates is sponsored by the Commission on Local Debates and Channel 9. Sullivans participation was solicited repeatedly. My information is that after ignoring the two of three emails, she declined to participate. She claimed she was holding her calendar open for other possible candidate forums. Despite that claim she chose to not participate in the Lake Sumter State College candidate forum held on Wednesday, September 26th. Is Sulivans voting record the reason she doesnt want to debate? She co-sponsored a bill allowing firearms on college campuses, as well as voted to block a bill to ban assault weapons. She failed to expand Medicaid that would have enabled health insurance coverage for over half a million low-income, working families. She also refuses to support conservation funding require by the 2014 Amendment One mandate. In addition to her refusal to debate Debra Kaplan and her no-show at the recent LSSC candidate forum, Sullivan also refuses to address position questions posed by the League of Women Voters (https://www.vote411.org). If Sullivan is not ashamed of her record, then she should be willing to debate. She should be willing to state publicly what she stands for. Thats the way democracy is supposed to work.Elizabeth Kapoor, Leesburg Its not all bad being a conservative In response to Mr. McAlisters recent article, I say that its not all bad being a conservative. My stay in Korea, while serving in the army from September 55 to February 57, developed within me a deep appreciation for our country. Thus, I reject communism, socialism, and the progressive movement. Do I agree with everything that is going on in our country? Absolutely not! I disagreed with the Supreme Courts decision on abortion and same-sex marriage. But, I believe in our Constitution which has been the supreme law of our nation since its adoption in 1789. Its the law, and thus the decisions exist. The Bible states that prior to the return of the Lord, things will become worse. I believe the Bible to be Gods inspired word to us and those who fail to believe and follow it do do at their own peril. In fact, Jesus tells us in Mathew 24:12, And because lawlessness will be abound, the love of many will grow cold.Ž Check out major cities in this country if you doubt that lawlessness is on the rise. I feel sorry for Mr. McAlister and others who want to follow the likes of George Soros, the Clintons, and Bernie Sanders down the road to socialism and the demise of our great country. Are we a perfect country? No, but we are the greatest country in the world. Why do you believe people by the thousands are coming across our borders to live here? With all our problems, we are still the greatest country in the world! Its not all bad being a conservative after all is it? Sure beats the alternative! Ill leave you with the necessary reminder that Jesus said, Heaven and earth will pass away, but my Words will by no means pass away.ŽTom Cavanaugh, Mount DoraLETTERS TO THE EDITORAs difficult as it may be to believe, there was a time when Republicans were known as the anti-debt and balanced budget party. Now, the GOP prefers to tout low unemployment as the debt soars and they are co-conspirators in its rise. Its not that Republicans (and once-fiscally responsible Democrats) lack a way out of debt; its that they lack the will. Both parties, but especially Republicans, fear a backlash from voters if they cut spending, much less make actual reductions. How bad is it and what can be done about it? Its this bad: The Treasury Department and Office of Management and Budget announced last week that in fiscal year 2018, the federal deficit rose to its highest level in six years, 17 percent over the previous fiscal period. Thats an increase of $779 billion. The national debt is over $21.5 trillion and counting. The federal government is hardly starving for revenue. Washington collected a record $1.68 trillion in individual income taxes in fiscal 2018, but the money always goes out faster than it comes in. Brian Riedl of the Manhattan Institute, a free-market think tank based in New York, has written a proposal which, if adopted (and that is highly questionable given the hyper-partisan atmosphere in Washington), could avoid a coming fiscal disaster. The entire proposal can be found at manhattaninstitute.org, but heres his summation of the problem and his proposed solution. First, the problem, which everyone knows, but few will face: Today, one-third of the baby boomers have already retired, and another one-third will retire over the next six years. Annual budget deficits will soon pass $1 trillion on the way to $2 trillion and possibly $3 trillion in 10 or 15 years. Overall, the Social Security and Medicare systems face an unfathomable $100 trillion cash deficit over 30 years. Without reform, runaway deficits will all but guarantee a debt crisis that will profoundly damage the countrys economic and social order. There is still time to avoid that crisis, but it will require the nations fractious political leaders to leave their respective comfort zones and compromise.Ž His solution: Stabilize the national debt around 95 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) through spending cuts and tax increases that gradually rise to 6 percent of GDP by 2048 against a current policy baseline, which in turn saves 3.7 percent of GDP in interest costs. In that year federal spending at 23.4 percent of GDP would be attached with revenues at 20.1 percent of GDP.Ž Sound complicated? Read the entire proposal for a detailed explanation, along with definitions. Democrats wont like any tampering with Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, which they have used as a political weapon against Republicans for decades. Republicans wont like even the small tax increases Riedl proposes, but maybe that is why this plan will work. The biggest problem, though, is that too many Americans have an entitlement mentality, the notion that government somehow owes them something. For some, government has become a first resource, instead of a last resort. Industry and personal responsibility are character traits from a distant past, if people can even remember those days. The notion that government owes us is a difficult concept to break, but someone has to begin the process, or the economy risks a fate that not even the wisdom of a Brian Riedl will be able to fix. Politicians in both parties cant say they havent been warned, but perhaps they believe they wont be around when the buck not only stops, but crashes, as it inevitably must.

Explosive plays.The Gators have given up their share, and theyre look-ing to eliminate them heading into Saturdays SEC show-down with Georgia.Its huge (that we eliminate them),Ž UF coach Dan Mullen said. Explosive plays usually lead to points.

Shurmur hurt UF with some explosive plays. [MARK HUMPHREY/ASSOCIATED PRESS] Gators have been burned several times this season By Steven WineThe Associated PressDAVIE „ The Miami Dolphins' defense will have a different look this week."I got a haircut," linebacker Raekwon McMillan announced, "just to make myself feel good."Change is needed after a decidedly ragged showing at home last week. The Dolphins gave up 248 yards rushing and forced only one punt in a 32-21 loss to Detroit, and they must regroup quickly for tonights game at Houston.The Texans (4-3) have a top-10 offense and a four-game winning streak. That bodes badly for the Dolphins (4-3), who rank fourth-worst in the NFL in yards allowed per play and gave up seven scores against the Lions."It was bad," coach Adam Gase said. "We have to clean up a lot of stuff. We have to get on the same page, and everybody needs to make sure they play as a group. They gutted us."But Gase ruled out a lineup shake-up."It's not about lineup changes," he said. "It's about everybody being on the same page and doing the right stuff to make sure that we have a chance to stop the run."Run defense has been a recur-ring problem during Gase's three years as coach. Over the final 10 weeks of the 2017 season, his team allowed 127 yards per game rushing, and won only twice. Even in 2016, when the Dolphins made the playoffs, they gave up more rushing yards than 29 other teams.This season Miami ranks Dolphins need to plug holes in defenseTodays gameWho: Miami (4-3) at Houston (4-3) When: 8:20 p.m. TV: Fox & NFL Detroit Lions running back LeGarrette Blount (29) runs for a touchdown against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday in Miami Gardens. [AP PHOTO/LYNNE SLADKY, FILE] By Frank Jolleyfrank.jolley@dailycommercial.comIf the playoffs began Friday, area prep football fans would be treated to a clash of Sumter County powerhouses in an opening-round game.Thats the takeaway from this weeks release of the Florida High School Athletic Associations Playoff Power Rankings, which has three area teams „ The Villages and South Sumter in Class 4A, and South Lake in Class 6A „ in the postseason.Based on the weekly rank-ings, The Villages, ranked fourth in Class 4A-Region 2, would host South Sumter (5-4 regular-season record), the fifth-best team in Class 4A-2, in a Class 4A-Region 2 quarterfinal game on Nov. 9 at The Range in The Villages. After improving to 8-0 last week with a convincing win against Keystone Heights, The Villages held on to the fourth spot in the rankings; meanwhile, South Sumter improved to fifth after a big victory against Crystal River. In Class 6A-2, South Lake (5-3) dropped to the seventh seed, despite beating Ocala Forest 42-23 last week. As a result, the Eagles would face Seffner Armwood, the regions second-ranked team, in Seffner in a regional quarterfinal clash.South Lake could improve its playoff ranking consider-ably with a win at home on Thursday against Gaines-ville, the regions No. 5 seed.The rankings are released each week by the FHSAA to give coaches, players and fans an opportunity to see how their teams are faring in the postseason hunt. They are based on a series of criteria, including opponents won-loss record and provides a chance for teams to earn bonus points for sched-uling teams that appeared in the postseason during the most recent scheduling cycle.Sumter showdown?The Villages, South Sumter on collision courseSouth Sumter wide receiver Andra Hart (4) gets through Trinity Catholics defense on Sept. 28 in Ocala.

Way up.At this pace, that won't change anytime soon.Through the first eight full days of this season „ obviously, a small sample size „ NBA teams are averaging 113.4 points per game, the highest rate in 49 years. Teams are averaging 91 field-goal attempts per game, up five shots from last season, and the league is on an early pace to set records for 3-pointers made and attempted for the seventh straight year."I think guys are just getting more comfortable offensively in their games," Toronto point guard Kyle Lowry said.

In classes 1A through 4A, the top six teams in each of four regions will earn postseason bids. For classes 5A through 8A, the four district champions in each region and the four highest ranked non-district champions will transfer into the playoffs.The FHSAA will release its final rankings, which will determine playoff seedings and matchups, on Nov. 4.In addition to the three local programs who are in the playoff hunt, at least two area programs are among those still push-ing for a postseason bid.Wildwood enters Fridays game against The Villages ranked seventh in Class 1A-4. The Wild-cats are .21 points behind sixth-seeded Williston in the rankings.A victory against The Villages, undoubtedly, would elevate Wildwood into the sixth spot „ if not higher.In Class 4A-2, Mount Dora (4-4) improved more than a full point following its 24-14 win against Port Orange Atlantic. With a PPR of 32.13, the Hurricanes climbed to eighth in the regional rankings, 3.62 points behind sixthseeded Dunnellon. BasketballThe Montverde Acad-emy boys basketball team, which won its fourth mythical national title in six years last season, will begin the 2018-19 campaign as the top-ranked team in the nation, according to MaxPreps.The Eagles, who are 172-10 over the six seasons, are ranked ahead of No. 2 Mouth of Wilson (Virginia) Oak Hill Academy and third-ranked Braden-ton IMG Academy. Fort Lauderdale University, which lost to Montverde Academy 76-58 in last seasons Geico National Championship game in New York, is fourth and Chatsworth (California) Sierra Canyon rounds out the top five.Montverde Academy will be led by 6-foot-9 senior forward Omar Payne, a transfer from Kissimmee Osceola who has already committed to Florida. Other players to watch for the Eagles include forward Precious Achiuwa, 6-foot-5 guard Moses Moody and junior Cade Cunningham.Montverde Academy was 35-0 last season and will open defense of its national title at 7 p.m. on Nov. 30 against Orlando First Academy at Montverde Academys Center for Sportsmanship and Wellness „ The Nest. SoccerMontverde Academy girls soccer player Jody Brown scored a goal to help the Eagles win its first Class 4A state championship in Febru-ary against Estero.Earlier this month, Brown was making history on an international stage.In a 9-0 win against Cuba on Oct. 11 at the CONCACAF Womens Gold Cup, Brown became the youngest player ever to record a hat trick when she scored three goals for Jamaica. Brown led Jamaica in the tourna-ment with four goals and was named best young player.ŽA junior at Montverde Academy, Brown will play for Jamaica in the 2019 FIFA Womens World Cup, which begins June 7 in France. GolfFormer Lake Minneola golfing standout Jonathan Yaun recently was selected to the American Junior Golf Association boys All-America team for the 2018 junior golf season.Yaun, the FHSAA boys Class 3A state champion in 2017, earned second team honors and will offi-cially be honored along on Nov. 18 at the Junior All-America Awards Banquet at PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens.Current professionals who were members of the AJGA All-America teams include: Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Justin Spieth, Inbee Park, Lexi Thomp-son and Anna Nordqvist.Yaun currently is a freshman at Liberty Uni-versity in Lynchburg, Virginia. SUMTERFrom Page B1 DailyCommercial.com | Thursday, October 25, 2018 B3Montverdes Jody Brown (20) dribbles past the Viera defense during a playoff game in February in Montverde. Brown became the youngest player ever to record a hat trick when she scored three goals for Jamaica earlier this month in the CONCACAF Womens Gold Cup. [PAUL RYAN/CORRESPONDENT] game."As recently as the 2014-15 season, teams were reaching the 100-point mark 51.5 percent of the time.So far this season, that figure is at 88.2 percent.And there are no shortage of other statis-tically baffling numbers out there in the early part of this season.In the 51 games played through Tuesday, 49 have seen at least one team score 100 points. The losing team has wound up scoring 100 or more points a staggering 80.4 percent of the time. Minnesota scored 136 points in a non-overtime game and lost „ the first time that's happened in the NBA since 1992. New Orleans posted a league-high 149 points against Sacramento last week. San Antonio scored 143, albeit in an overtime game, against the Los Angeles Lakers, the most by the Spurs in more than eight years. (The Spurs also allowed 142 points in the same game, the most points allowed by a San Antonio team since 1990, long before Gregg Popo-vich's coaching tenure there started.)"The whole dynamic of the game has changed," said Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan, in remarks published by the San Antonio Express-News. "The rules force you to play at a high speed. Tempo is getting pushed. So many 3s are being shot."Perhaps the most baffling stat is this: Entering Wednesday, LeBron James and the Lakers ranked No. 2 in the NBA in scoring at 125.3 points per game, and were off to an 0-3 start anyway."We've played well enough to win ... and well enough to lose," James said. "If that makes any sense."In this wide-open NBA, that might make perfect sense. NBAFrom Page B1 fourth-worst in rushing yards allowed, and the Lions repeatedly took advantage of gaping holes. Among Miami players, there's cohesion in the locker room that the prob-lem is a lack of cohesion on the field."We just have to tighten up all around, everybody in their gaps, making sure that we're sound, playing our technique and not trying to do too much, not trying to make too many plays," McMillan said. "We have to play better. That's all there is to it."Another problem is the pass rush. The Dolphins have just 11 sacks, fourthlowest in the league. Ends Cameron Wake, Robert Quinn and Andre Branch, who are drawing a lot of attention from blockers, have only one sack apiece."My job is to the get to the quarterback," Wake said. "If I don't do it, it's a failure."Injuries have been an issue up front. Wake returned to the lineup last week, but end Charles Harris has been ruled out against Houston for the third game in a row with a calf injury.The Dolphins are tied for the league lead with 11 interceptions, but had no takeaways against the Lions. Cornerback Xavien Howard narrowly missed coming up with a late pick when it was a one-score game."If we want to consider ourselves one of the best secondaries, we've got to make plays when they come," Howard said. "I had the opportunity."A few takeaways by the defense would be a big boost for a Miami offense missing two starting receivers and relying on backup quarter-back Brock Osweiler for the third game in a row.

The HalloweenŽ reboot is here, and Michael Myers, the iconic masked boogeyman, is back and thirstier than ever for blood. Faster than you can say boo,Ž Myers „ aka The Shape „ is on a rampage, racking up double-digit kills. No one is safe, especially Laurie Strode, the lone surviving teen from the original. Her estranged daughter and granddaughter are in danger, too. Cue the chilling score. Grab some popcorn. Its on. This script, by Danny McBride (Vice PrincipalsŽ) and his old college chum, director David Gordon Green, picks up 40 years after John Carpenters 1978 horror classic. Thankfully, the filmmakers ignore the nine subsequent franchise entries and construct the new HalloweenŽ as a direct sequel to the original. It hits the ground running, as the pure evilŽ that is Myers escapes custody during a prison transfer and makes his way back to the sleepy hamlet on Halloween night. Were going to have a (expletive) circus on our hands,Ž says one character. Hes right. OG scream-queen Jamie Lee Curtis, reprising her iconic role as Laurie, has turned into a reclusive grandmother who knows how to handle assault rifles. She has a strained relationship with her daughter, Karen (Judy Greer), and teenage granddaughter, Allyson, (Andi Matichak). Both think GrandmotherŽ is nutso. Maybe she is.

So it went into Morellos stockpile. It didnt find footing then, but I always kept that one in my back pocket. Like, That is a badass riff and one day its going to tear people apart,Ž he said. That day is now with the release of The Atlas Underground,Ž which finds Morello teaming up with an eclectic collection of artists he hopes will challenge the conventions of rock n roll and electronic music and hip hop and punk.Ž Morello, who is listed among the 100 greatest guitarists by Rolling Stone magazine, has collaborated with folkie Marcus Mumford, alt-rock darlings Portugal. The Man, guitar god Gary Clark Jr., the Wu-Tang Clans RZA and GZA, rapper Big Boi and the hypnotic DJ Bassnectar, among others. The album features artists of diverse genres, ethnicities, ages and genders and that, in itself, is a statement of these divisive times,Ž said Morello. The idea was to forge a sonic conspiracyŽ and make a new genre of rock n roll.Ž Morello, who is a fan of Mumford & Sons and has performed with the band several times, asked lead singer Mumford for help on the song Find Another Way.Ž Both are rock dads who carved out time to collaborate via Skype from different time zones. So he would put his kid to bed in England and I would drop my kids off at school in Los Angeles and then return home to FaceTime with our acoustic guitars out and write that song,Ž he explained. As for Clark, he stopped by for a three-hour bluesrock explosion jamŽ that was honed down to a concise freight-train-disco demolition-metal thingŽ that would fit very comfortably both in a mosh pit and the dance floor.Ž Its called Where Its at Aint What It Is.Ž Morello, 54, is known for his shredding chops „ he was in Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave and Prophets of Rage „ but he stretched sonically, too. Even into electronic dance music. I was never a fan of EDM music, or at least my understanding of it until I was introduced to Knife Party and I felt all of the aggression and the tension and release of the greatest rock n roll music in their catalog,Ž he said. Morello also highlights up-and-coming artists, like exciting alt-rocker K. Flay, born Kristine Flaherty. He was driving his kids to school when he heard her soaring, Grammy-nominated song Blood in the CutŽ on the radio. I pulled the car over. I got on my phone and I texted my manager: Find me K. Flay. I dont know if its a man, a woman, a band, an orchestra „ whatever K. Flay is I need to be in business with it,Ž Morello said. And it turns out that shes fantastic.ŽMorello teams up with eclectic partnersIn this Oct. 1, 2017, “ le photo, Tom Morello performs at the Louder Than Life Music Festival in Louisville, Ky.

On its debut album, Anthem of the Peaceful Army,Ž the Michigan quartet channels Led Zeppelin and 1970s-style oldschool classic rock with scary precision, on tracks like When the Curtain Falls,Ž Watching OverŽ and Lover Leaver (Taker Believer).Ž They have Zeps sound down so perfectly that its not hard to imagine youre listening to Jimmy Page playing slide guitar or a jangly acoustic piece. The big difference here is in the songwriting: While Greta Van Fleet have rightly generated a huge buzz as an up-and-coming young band that convincingly plays old-school hard rock, they have yet to take that crucial next step and write a rock anthem that burns its way into your brain with just one listen. Theres no Whole Lotta LoveŽ or HeartbreakerŽ riff here „ yet „ to cement Greta Van Fleets place in rock history. But theyve got the foundation and the talent to support the next great classic rocker, whenever it might arrive.Van Fleet keeps 70s-style rock Anthem of the Peaceful ArmyGreta Van Fleet (Lava/Republic)MUSIC REVIEW MUSIC & BOOKS LEFT: Volunteer John Dickerson pulls meat from the whole roasted pig at the Beast Feast 2017.

Its a fortress with steel grates on the doors and windows. Laurie has been waiting 40 years for Michaels inevitable return. Shes got unfinished business with the lunatic who ruined her life. Those four decades havent been easy for Laurie. Shes been divorced twice and lost custody of Karen when her daughter was 12. GrandmotherŽ suddenly doesnt seem so crazy. The movie wears out its welcome by the time Green gets us to that inevitable last-act vengeance-fueled showdown. I grew numb to the violence: A hammer to the head, a knife through the carotid, snapped necks, a steel-toe boot to the face, some barbed-wire around the neck and an impalement or two. Even though it grows repetitive, the audience I saw the movie with cringed with delight at the squishy sounds of death. Despite succumbing to the tropes of the horror genre, the movie is a cut above most slasher flicks, even if McBride and Green depend on the original film for their best moments, such as Allyson (bookish like her grandmother) looking out the window of the high school classroom to see Curtis standing in Myers old spot. The strongest scene doesnt even feature the main players. It involves a babysitter (Virginia Gardner), her charge (Jibrail Nantambu) and her boyfriend (Miles Robbins). McBride and Green (Pineapple ExpressŽ) put their comedic background to good use, eliciting chuckles among the chills: Everyone in my family turns into creepy nutcases this time of year,Ž says Allyson early on. Among the other supporting characters are: Haluk Bilginer as Dr. Sartain, a protg of Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence) from the original; Will Patton is officer Hawkins, the cop who is always the first on the scene; and Rhian Rees and Jefferson Hall as investigative podcasters trying to shed new light on Myers murders. Carpenters lean HalloweenŽ had all the elements: a maniac in a mask; loads of atmosphere, a simple story, a handful of characters and a haunting score. Greens Halloween,Ž while timely with three women taking down a male predator, is too bloated, with undeveloped characters hanging around for the sole purpose of being fodder for Myers gruesome slayings. Thats a plus for jolt junkies, but frustrating for those of us who dont like unearned twists and turns. Im looking at you Sartain, but I wont be a spoiler. Nonetheless, HalloweenŽ is sure to be a screaming success. Dana Barbuto may be reached at dbarbuto@ patriotledger.com or follow her on Twitter @ dbarbuto_Ledger.

DEAR ABBY: I'm a millennial, and it seems these days people stay at jobs for only a few years before moving on. That has been my experience in the past, but now I'm in a position that's ful“lling and where I am creatively satis“ed. All my friends are always looking for their next gig, but for once, I don't feel that way. They keep sending me job postings they think I would be interested in, which would be right up my alley if I was looking, but I'm not. How should I respond? Does it say I'm lacking motivation or goals if I don't have the desire to leave the company where I am currently working? In this day and age, is it OK to stay longer at a company, or does that actually hurt your resume? Does it show a lack of drive? -SEEKING GUIDANCE DEAR SEEKING: Many millennials move from job to job because they don't like what they're doing or don't have the creative satisfaction you do, as well as other factors. Remaining with a company you like, being appreciated and fairly compensated for what you do, should not create a black mark on your resume. It's a sign of stability. In terms of a resume, it's not just your work history that has importance or value, it's also your acquired skills, your community participation and relevant hobbies. These elements let potential employers get a well-rounded view of the person who's being hired.DEAR ABBY: I received a Facebook "invitation to an event" from one of my local friends. Her daughter who lives out of state is expecting, and this is an "online shower." The invitation contains a link to her daughter's registry. There's no date -just choose a gift and pay to have it sent to her. The daughter is fully employed as a high school life skills teacher, and her husband is a minister. I always thought of a shower as a social gathering to honor a mother-to-be with gifts, see what gifts she receives, play games, have refreshments and visit. This new concept seems in poor taste to me. While I don't intend to participate, I feel rude just clicking on "Not going." Am I being a crotchety old relic? -OLD TIMER IN TEXAS DEAR OLD TIMER: In light of the fact that you didn't mention whether you know or even like your friend's daughter, I don't think you are being a "crotchety old relic." Because you received what I would call a stripped-down version of an "invitation," you should not feel rude in responding in the same fashion. Just click no, if that's the only option you've been given.DEAR ABBY: I was widowed this spring and seem to recall hearing, years ago, that I should not send out greeting cards for the “rst year. Is this still proper etiquette? With the holidays approaching, I need to know whether I should or should not be sending Christmas cards. For some people, it will be the only way they'll learn of his passing. Thank you for your help. -CAROLYN IN VIRGINIA DEAR CAROLYN: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your husband. If you feel up to sending holiday cards and would like to do so, by all means send them. I have never heard of any rule of etiquette that says you shouldn't. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. How to play: Fill in the blank squares with the numbers 1 through 9 so that each horizontal row, vertical column and nine-square sub-grid contains no repeated numbers.

YESTERDAYS SOLUTION‰‰ BRIDGE ‰‰ CRYPTOQUOTE ‰‰ HOROSCOPES ‰‰ TODAY IN HISTORY DIVERSIONS HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR THURSDAY, OCT. 25, 2018: This year you will experience some profound changes as a result of relating to an extremely intense individual in your life. You both transform because of this relationship. If you are single, you could meet someone special at nearly any point in the next year. The attraction will be intense, and the differences between you also could be substantial. If you are attached, the two of you enjoy relating to each other. You often challenge each other to grow and adapt. TAURUS can be more stubborn than you are.ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) You will want more contact with a partner than usual. You are trying to resolve an issue to everyones satisfaction. Checking in with others to discuss key points is smart. Understanding what motivates you to head in a certain direction might not appeal to some. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Despite a “t of anger or frustration, you can be found smiling most of the day. As long as you relax, the cards will fall in the right direction for you. Reach out to someone at a distance whom you dont often slow down to speak to or share news with. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Your perky attitude and happy style draw friends toward you. You might wonder what would be the best thing for you to do under a certain set of circumstances. A partner is likely to give you strong feedback. Try to stay on topic as much as possible. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) You might want to come to terms with a loved one or dear friend. Reach out to this person. Though there could be a minute or two of anger, eventually you will be able to talk through what has been a problem. Allow more give-and-take with this person. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Others always seem to notice you, but at the present moment you might feel as if you are being noticed too much, especially professionally. Dont get nervous, but try to be less social than usual. You could gain from this moment in a big way. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) A partner could be more provocative than usual. Avoid triggering a disagreement if possible. Frustrations might be high, but if you stay ”exible, you will ”ow through a situation with ease. Be willing to work with the unfamiliar and the unknown. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) One-on-one relating takes you to a new level of understanding. You might wonder whether you will be able to ful“ll a commitment involving a loved one. Anger and/or frustration could bubble up if you are not careful in how you deal with this person. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Defer to a partner. Attempt to get the feedback you need. Youll discover the signi“cance of getting information as well as the need to apply it. Be willing to take a stand, if need be. Others appreciate you stepping up to the plate. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22DEC. 21) Be willing to take a risk. Know that even with the Full Moon, you could be bored and dragging. Recognize how a child or loved one often inspires you to take risks. You might decide to be your own cheerleader today. Go for what you want. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22JAN. 19) Being reasonable always seems to help. You usually come up with the right response. Back out of a problem that does not interest you. Be clear about your motivation. Open up a conversation about a self-imposed restriction. Get feedback. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) You sense that you cant get more information by asking questions or by snooping around. Others are likely to divulge more than you had anticipated. A friendship could feel more draining to you now than it has in the past. Take a step back, if possible. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You will stay on top of a project. Others might be surprised by how smoothly things are running. Trust that you will know when you have had enough. Explore an idea that you have thought about and now want to talk through.

TODAY'S HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY: On Oct. 25, 1760, Britain's King George III succeeded his late grandfather, George II. ON THIS DATE: In 1910 America the Beautiful,Ž with words by Katharine Lee Bates and music by Samuel A. Ward, was “rst published. In 1954 a meeting of President Dwight D. Eisenhowers Cabinet was carried live on radio and television. In 1962 during a meeting of the U.N. Security Council, U.S. Ambassador Adlai E. Stevenson II demanded that Soviet Ambassador Valerian Zorin confirm or deny the existence of Soviet-built missile bases in Cuba; Stevenson then presented photographic evidence of the bases to the Council. In 1971 the U.N. General Assembly voted to admit mainland China and expel Taiwan. In 1983 a U.S.-led force invaded Grenada at the order of President Ronald Reagan, who said the action was needed to protect U.S. citizens there. In 1986 in Game 6 of the World Series, the Boston Red Sox lost to the New York Mets, 6-5, on a wild pitch and an error in the tenth inning, forcing a seventh game, which the Mets ended up winning.
