But a review of the agreement suggests that it could also mean higher prices for consumers and more inef-ficiencies for businesses. And the biggest winners might end up being robots and the com-panies that make them.As Americans vote in the midterm elections, Trump is heralding the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement as a triumph for his antagonistic trade policy „ an approach that he says will usher in a new dawn for the American auto industry and the Ameri-can auto worker.ŽThe pact, unveiled Sept. 30, does appear to meet some of Trumps goals: It could shift more factory production to the United States, thereby reversing a long-standing flow Worth the risk?By Nicholas RiccardiThe Associated PressTEMPE, Ariz. „ The Republican, Rep. Martha McSally, wore a maroon-and-gold Arizona State University T-shirt and jeans as she belted out the national anthem at the schools homecoming game Saturday. The Democrat, Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, wore a canary-yellow dress and 8-inch platform shoes with cactus applique as she presided over the coin toss.But the crowd of 46,000 greeted both U.S. Senate candidates the same way: with a mix of cheers and boos.It was a fitting kickoff to the final weekend before the 2018 midterms, a campaign that seemingly launched the day after Donald Trump was elected president two years ago that is climaxing in the shadow of a bomb plot targeting Democratic leaders and the worst anti-Semitic shooting in U.S. his-tory. Each side is doing everything it can to mobilize voters, warning of the dire consequences of failure.Democrats are counting on wresting control of the House from Republicans and hoping for a longshot series of wins to take back the Senate as well. But Republicans are optimistic they can gain seats in a Senate map heavy on red states and havent given up on holding the House.Neither side wanted to leave anything on the field in the final weekend. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee spent $650,000 in the final stretch on advertising on AfricanAmerican radio stations to mobilize black voters.Voters in both parties said they were paying attention.Ive never been so sleepless, so rest-less as I have beenŽ since Trump was elected, Sudi Farokhnia, a risk manager in Orange County, California, Campaigns make nal pushA supporter crosses her “ ngers as she talks with Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema at an event Saturday at the Arizona Education Association headquarters in Phoenix. [BOB CHRISTIE/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Sonia Perez D.The Associated PressCORDOBA, Mexico „ Thou-sands of bone-tired Central Americans set their sights on Mexico City on Sunday after undertaking a grueling journey through a part of Mexico that has been particularly treacher-ous for migrants seeking to get to the United States. An estimated 4,000 migrants are in the Gulf state of Veracruz, where hundreds of migrants have disappeared in recent years, falling prey to kidnappers look-ing for ransom payments. The days 124-mile trek was one of the longest yet, as the exhausted migrants tried to make progress walking and hitching rides toward the U.S. border still hun-dreds of miles away.The migrants now aim to regroup in the Mexican capital, seeking medical care and rest while they await stragglers. The caravan has found strength in numbers as it meanders north, with towns-people pouring out to offer food, water, fresh clothes and replacement footwear.On Sunday, the bulk of the caravan streamed into the colonial city of Cordoba, in Vera-cruzs sugar belt, where they were greeted with Caribbean music and dance. Meanwhile, bleary eyed migrants who had charged ahead to Mexico City expressed gratitude for the sup-port of their fellow travelers, saying they would not have had the strength or courage to get so far on their own.A few arrived at a large outdoor stadium in the capital, where they lounged on bleach-ers and watched Mexicans play soccer. City employees piled hot food onto Styrofoam plates for the migrants, some of whom had hopped freight trucks to speed their arrival to the capital. Others rested inside a church in the city of Puebla.It is unclear what part of the U.S. border the caravan will aim for eventually, or how many may splinter off on their own. Most of the migrants said they remain convinced that traveling as a large mass is their best hope for reaching the U.S. The migrants generally say they are fleeing rampant poverty, gang violence and political instability primarily in the Central American countries of Honduras, Guate-mala, El Salvador and Nicaragua.We think that it is better to continue together with the car-avan. We are going to stay with it and respect the organizers,Ž said Luis Euseda, a 32-year-old from Tegucigalpa, Honduras, traveling with his wife, Jessica Fugon. Others went ahead, maybe they have no goal, but we do have a goal and it is to arrive.ŽCaravan sets sight on getting to Mexico CityCentral American migrants pack into the back of a trailer truck as they begin their morning trek as part of a thousands-strong caravan hoping to reach the U.S. border, Sunday in Isla, Veracruz state, Mexico. [MARCO UGARTE/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By John KennedyGateHouse Capital BureauTALLAHASSEE „ Amid nonstop TV ads and highprofile campaign rallies, Floridas nationally-watched races for governor and U.S. Senate hurtle toward a fren-zied finish with the fate of the states long dominance by Republicans and even the Trump presidency potentially hinged on Tuesdays outcome.Floridas top of the ballot contests still look like tossups, despite more than a quarter-billion dollars pumped into TV ads „ the most in the nation.On top of that: Millions more spent on ads flooding airwaves across a state where at least five hard-fought congressional contests may contribute to Democrats claiming control of the U.S. House for the first time in eight years.It all comes down to turnout now. Thats the clich,Ž said Mac Stipanovich, a longtime Republican strategist. But its a clich for a reason „ because its true.ŽPresident Donald Trump, with a pair of Florida rallies in the final week of the cam-paign „ the latest Saturday night in Pensacola „ clearly is trying to steer the state where he spends much of the winter.He has been touting his policies, warning about Democrats, and promoting Republican Gov. Rick Scott and gubernatorial nominee Ron DeSantis.With his 2020 re-election campaign over the horizon, Trump also is seeking to bol-ster his own prospects in the nations largest swing state, which he narrowly carried two years ago.Scotts opponent, threeterm Democratic U.S. Sen.

I wanted him to feel com-passion. I chose to show him empathy. I felt that the best way to honor his victims was for a Jew to prove him wrong.ŽAn Allegheny General Net-work representative confirmed the authenticity of the post.Bowers, 46, pleaded not guilty Thursday to a 44-count grand jury indictment charging him with murder, hate crimes, obstructing the practice of religion and other crimes, for which he could face the death penalty. Authorities say Bowers raged against Jews during and after the massacre. He remains jailed without bail.Mahler, whose Facebook page noted that he started his job in the hospitals emergency department March 1, said he didnt see evil in Bowers eyes but a clear lack of depth, intel-ligence, and palpable amounts of confusion.Ž He said he couldnt go into detail about their interaction due to medical privacy requirements, but Bowers thanked him for saving him, for showing him kindness, and for treating him the same way I treat every other patient.ŽHe noted that this came from the same person accused of mass murder who instilled panic in my heart worrying my parents were two of his 11 vic-tims less than an hour before his arrival.ŽMahler, who said that his father was a rabbi and that he experienced anti-Semitism a lotŽ as a kid, said he acted out of love.Love. Thats why I did it,Ž he said. Love as an action is more powerful than words, and love in the face of evil gives others hope. It demonstrates human-ity. It reaffirms why were all here. ... I could care less what Robert Bowers thinks, but you, the person reading this, love is the only message I wish instill in you.

PANAMA CITY BEACHSurvey will decide how much sand lost to Hurricane MichaelCoastal engineers next week will conduct a survey of Panama City beach to figure out how much sand was lost when Hurricane Michael roared ashore.A preliminary estimate is that the storm siphoned off more than 1 million cubic yards of sand from Panama City Beach shores. Thats about the carrying capacity of between 60,000 and 130,000 dump trucks.The Panama City News Herald reports that officials are still not sure of the total impact.Authorities say beach ero-sion could have been far worse but the storm surge at Panama City Beach was not as high as in other places impacted by Michael.Michael hit the Panhandle on Oct. 10 as a powerful Category 4 hurricane, causing numerous deaths and destruction.

LeHeupSmith, a 28-year resident and an employee at Belton Financial Group of Raymond James in Tavares.The winner will replace Linda Durham Bob who is retiring after eight years on the commission.Hagins, 31, said he is running to be a voice for all the residents of Eustis, to bring better development and especially, to make sure the citys youth is taken care of.Hagins said there is not much for kids to do in Eustis, so he wants to create better resources to boost activi-ties, but in a way that makes them accessible to everyone. How come Eustis doesnt have the programs we had growing up? And how come as a dad, I cant even afford to send my child to the citys summer programs?,Ž Hagins asked. We need to create better resources for the younger people and give them other outlets to keep them out of trouble. We need to think about building Eustis to better the youth.Ž Youre preparing for the next generation,Ž Hagins added.With that same mindset, Hagins said he believes he can bring a more youthful, fresher set of eyes to the council.He said the commission is not as productive as it could be in many ways, which is reflected in what is getting done and not getting done.He said he would like to see the lighting situation improved in all parts of town, more sporting events and more restaurants and businesses in town.Three vie for Seat 1 Hagins Parks LeHeup-Smith By Payne Ray pray@dailycommercial.comTAVARES „ Rather than an evening meeting, the Lake County School Board will host a morning workshop Monday to review the districts liabilities and policies.Tom Mock, the districts director of internal auditing, will first present the board with a risk assessment compiled by auditing staff.The assessment is made for the School School Board begins auditBands from Lake, Sumter and Marion show their stu in LeesburgSee SEAT, A4See AUDIT, A4


A4 Monday, November 5, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comTo do that however, he said the city needs to be more proactive in their approach to working with new businesses and things wanting to come into town.You need to know what my generation needs and wants. We need to build Eustis for every-body and with a different approach,Ž Hagins said. I am a young man who grew up struggling in life and I just want you to give me the chance to show you something different.ŽNicie Allen Parks, 59, said her goal has always been to run for a seat on the commission once she retired from her work with Lake County government. She said she has always played an active role within the community and with her church but she wants to do more, but in a more positive way than how its being done today in order to get things accomplished.Parks said she is interested in attracting the types of new businesses that can offer jobs and sustain college graduates who want to come back to live and start their fami-lies in Eustis.She said as it is now, they are forced to go elsewhere.When young people come back to your city, it helps your city grow and that creates wealth,Ž Parks said. Parks also said the chil-dren in town need to be taken care of, as far as having a facility that can be utilized by them for safe and fun activities, mentoring, tutoring, com-puters, sports and more. If you engage children at a younger age, they can do more,Ž she said.Parks also said there should be better engage-ment between the commission and citizens so that citizens feel their voices matter. She said the same focus also needs to be placed on all businesses and amenities throughout town, regard-less of their location.She said a lot of businesses outside of the downtown business corridor dont get any attention.I want us to embrace the diversity in our city because everyone brings something to the table. We want to have healthy families, healthy relation-ships between people, healthy businesses and a healthy city,Ž Parks said.Karen LeHeup Smith, 61, the only politically experienced candidate of the three, said she decided to run again to get the commission back on track.Smith said she has served two terms (eight years) and each time taken two year off in between to take care of family matters.With those matters resolved in her own life, she said its time to do the same as far as what is currently going on with the commission. You can step back and refresh your views and come back to something with fresh eyes,Ž Smith said. My life is back on keel but what I see on the commission is that its gotten derailed. All the important planning is not happening anymore and Id like to get us back on track.ŽSmith said the city has a beautiful waterfront that is not being fully utilized, there has not been enough focus placed on attracting the rights types of businesses that Eustis needs coming into town and a downtown that is not attracting as many people as it should if only it were marketed and seen as the attraction that it is.She said to do all that, the commission needs to be more accessible to the people so that they can hear their ideas and work with them to build on what Eustis has.Im not bringing an agenda. Im running simply to get to the busi-ness of Eustis and make it work because the com-mission has been a little disjointed,Ž Smith said. We can disagree, but then we can still move forward.Ž SEATFrom Page A3Board to review annu-ally, and will bring board members up to speed on different operating risks and how to fix them.There are three separate categories to be presented, covering dozens of specific items.Financial risks, mean-ing the potential for costs to exceed expectations, legal risks that could open the schools to litigation and operational risks where something could cause inefficiencies. IT risks are also calcu-lated, but theyre handled separately by IT staff and will not be a part of Mon-days presentation.Since the meeting will be a workshop, the School Board wont be able to take any action based on whats pre-sented, but district staff can continue to work based on the informa-tion and inform the board of their future auditing plans.The School Board will also begin reviewing and discussing board policy.They will only view a chunk of the policies Monday, largely having to do with human resources.These include hiring practices and benefits, as well as the ins-and-outs of employee protections and management. AUDITFrom Page A3 By Gary Fineout and Tamara LushThe Associated PressTALLAHASSEE, Fla. „ A man trying to stop a shooting attack on a Florida yoga studio said Sunday that he wrestled with the attacker after his gun jammed, a move credited with giving others time to flee the rampage that killed two people and wounded six others.Yoga student Joshua Quick spoke to ABCs Good Morning America on Sunday and said he grabbed Scott Paul Bei-erles gun after it jammed, and hit him.Tallahassee Police have identified Beierle as the man who posed as a customer to get into the studio Hot Yoga Tallahas-see during a Friday night class and started shooting. Police said Beierle, 40, then turned the gun on himself but authorities have offered no motive in the attack.Quick said Beierle was able to grab the gun back and then pistol-whipped him.I jumped up as quickly as I could,Ž said Quick, who had visible facial injuries. I ran back over and the next thing I know Im grabbing a broom, the only thing I can, and I hit him again.ŽIt gave some in the studio time to flee.Thanks to him I was able to rush out the door,Ž Daniela Garcia Albalat told Good Morning America.

The videos were posted four years ago, and were removed from YouTube after the shooting.Numerous disturbing details about him have emerged. Hed once been banned from FSUs campus and had been arrested twice for grab-bing women even though charges were ultimately dropped.Beierle, who had moved to the central Florida town of Deltona after getting a graduate degree from FSU, appeared to post a series of videos on YouTube in 2014 where he called women whoresŽ if they dated black men, said many black women were disgustingŽ and described himself as a misogynist.A Tallahassee police spokesman would not confirm or deny the videos were Beierles. However, the man speaking in the videos looks like Beierle and biographical details mentioned in the videos match known facts about Beierle, including details of his military service. The posters YouTube username included the word Scott,Ž Beierles first name. The existence of the videos was first reported by BuzzFeed.A woman who filed a police report against Beierle told The AP shes never forgotten how creepyŽ he was.Courtnee Connon was 18 in 2012 when, she said, Scott Paul Beierle grabbed her buttocks at a Florida State dining hall. She declined to press charges, however. She learned of Beierles involvement Friday when a local reporter found her name in a police report and called her.I was totally just shocked,Ž she said. Since then, Ive been feeling a little guilt. If Id pressed charges, would that have stopped him from doing this? How was he not monitored somehow?ŽFour years after that, Beierle was arrested for misdemeanor battery after a young woman said he approached her at the swimming pool of a Tallahassee apartment complex, complemented her rear end and offered to rub sunscreen on it, records show. The woman said she declined the offer and, according to an affidavit, Beierle then slapped her on the buttocks and grabbed her.The top prosecutor for the office that handled Beierles 2016 charge, William N. WillieŽ Meggs, has no personal recollection of that case. However, since the 2012 battery charges were dropped, Meggs said, it would have been rou-tine for Beierle to receive a deferred prosecution deal.It would not have been atypical as a first-time offender for him to get diversion,Ž said Meggs, since retired as state attorney for Floridas Second Judicial Circuit. We should have called the victim to make sure she was OK with him get-ting diversion.ŽIts not clear from the court file whether that occurred, and the woman didnt respond to emails seeking comment. The AP doesnt publicly iden-tify sexual assault victims unless they choose to speak.Court records indicate prosecutors agreed to dismiss the battery charge after Beierle completed a six-month diversion agreement requiring him to stay out of trouble, not drink alcohol to excess and to follow a psychologists recommendations.Meanwhile, yoga teachers in the Florida capital and the country at large were horrified such a violent act could unfold in a place intended for tran-quility and nonviolence.Some teachers wondered what they would tell their students.As an instructor when you start every class, you ask students to close their eyes to relax, because youre in such a safe space,Ž said Amanda Morrison, a Tallahassee instructor.The safety of her stu-dents is on her mind as she prepares to teach a class Monday.Im already thinking about locking the doors once class starts,Ž she said.Man says he wrestled with gunman at studioPolice investigators work the scene of a shooting, Friday in Tallahassee, Fla.

A6 Monday, November 5, 2018 | DailyCommercial.compersuasion to do,Ž said Steve Schale, a Demo-cratic consultant who ran Obamas 2008 campaign in Florida. But most people have made up their minds in these races. But if theres a narrow slice of the electorate that can still be persuaded „ thats important.ŽTuesdays outcome may set the state „ and the nation „ on a remark-able course.Gillum, Tallahassees mayor, would become the first Democratic gov-ernor elected in Florida in 24 years and could be only the third black elected governor in the nation. Black gubernatorial can-didates also are on the ballot Tuesday in Georgia and Maryland.Campaigning in Lee County on Halloween, Trump vilified Gillum as a radical socialistŽ „ a theme also hammered home repeatedly in Republican TV spots. Gillum has rejected the socialist tag, saying he holds values shared by the majority of Floridians.Ž But he is running on a more liberal platform than than past Democratic nominees for governor, and his progressive poli-cies could make for a very turbulent Tallahassee.Republicans are expected to retain con-trol of the state House and Senate.But a Gillum victory would give Democrats „ long in the shadows of state government „ control of most state agencies, thousands of appointments, and gubernatorial veto power over measures advanced by Republican lawmakers.Even Republican activ-ists say it would mean an end to years of the Legislature expanding charterand voucher schools, tightening abor-tion oversight and easing gun access, along with tax policies tilted toward corporations and business owners.Gillum, 39, has said he will find a way to negotiate such measures as a $15-per-hour minimum wage „ currently, its $8.25 „ a 40 percent boost in the states cor-porate income tax to raise more money for educa-tion and teacher salaries, and expand Medicaid to cover the working poor.My job is going to be to find cooperation, where possible,Ž Gillum said, when pressed on how hell contend with a Leg-islature positioned to be a roadblock.DeSantis, by contrast, has run a largely stay-the-course campaign. He praises Scott, the outgo-ing, two-term governor „ for his focus on job creation, cutting taxes and state regulation and an economy where unem-ployment is nearing a historic low.DeSantis, 40, who resigned his Palm Coast congressional seat after winning the GOP primary in August, has outlined mostly broad policy pro-posals „ spending more education money in the classroom, reducing law-suits against businesses, and reducing the corpo-rate tax.But DeSantiss campaign is built largely around his early endorse-ment from Trump „ and by drawing a sharp con-trast with Gillum.DeSantis said his opponent would be devastating for jobs and our economic momentum. I will not do that; I will continue to have low-tax policies and recruit and maintain more businesses.ŽThe DeSantis-Gillum race has included charges of racism, with the Republican nominee on the defense after an early monkey this upŽ comment preceded reports that he had attended conferences organized, in part, by far-right groups.Gillum has been attempting to tamp down Republican accusations of corruption amid an ongo-ing FBI investigation of Tallahassee city govern-ment and an ethics probe into trips he made to New York City and Costa Rica, some details of which have been made public in recent weeks and added to GOP attacks.Still, the DeSantisGillum race „ like the free-swinging Senate battle between Nelson and Scott „ has been shaped largely by national themes.Gillums support for Medicaid expansion in Florida „ a move rejected by state Republican lead-ers „ fits into Democrats focus on access to health care as a campaign mes-sage this fall.Nelson, 76, also recently held a town hall in Jacksonville where he was critical of Republicans like Scott, 65, for seeking to overturn the Affordable Care Act.A lawsuit filed by two GOP governors and 18 Republican attorney gen-erals, including Floridas Pam Bondi, looks to block the healthcare law.This is all about American values,Ž Nelson said about assuring access to healthcare. Having respect for another person, regardless of their circumstances in life.ŽScott has said he supports retaining coverage for pre-existing conditions, a flashpoint in the battle, despite his years-long push for repealing the law approved under Obama.Ive continued to say that it is important to cover individuals with pre-existing conditions and that every Ameri-can, including those with pre-existing conditions, should have the ability to buy any kind of insurance they want,Ž Scott said. Obamacare is a disaster and costs way too much.ŽDemocrats, though, say Scotts stance is contradictory.Similarly, with Scott a Trump ally and Nelson a frequent antagonist, the race easily reflects the national divide. Heading into the campaigns clos-ing days, Democrats cling to hopes of re-taking the Senate „ although most analysts show the party with a stronger shot at capturing command of the House.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell already has talked of the need for swift action on cost-sav-ing changes in Medicare, Social Security and Med-icaid, prompted by a spike in the federal deficit which followed last years Republican-backed tax cuts.But if Republicans lose command in either cham-ber, such aspirations would probably be scut-tled „ along with many of Trumps initiatives.Not only that, Democrats winning either the House or Senate could give them subpoena power to investigate the Trump administration more aggressively.Trump, in his visit to Fort Myers, called Nelson a far-left Democrat,Ž who votes with liberal Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and the radical agenda of Nancy Pelosi.ŽScott has poured at least $63.5 million of his own money into his Senate race „ financing much of his own campaign „ but has been dogged by news reports of his investments in companies whose bot-tom-line may have been helped by decisions he made as governor, allega-tions he has denied.The Gulf Coasts red tide outbreak „ which eventually spread to Floridas east coast „ and blue-green algae plaguing Atlantic Coast communities have also brought the wrath of some voters down on Scott, who is blamed for cutting key environmental funding.Last months Hurricane Michael, which devas-tated parts of the Florida Panhandle, prompted Scott to step away from the Senate campaign to deal with recovery. Still, with only one TV debate occurring between Scott and Nelson, the Senate fight has been mostly a clash of scorched-earth advertising.Floridas Senate race has seen $96 million spent on TV, according to the Wesleyan Media Project. Thats second in the nation to all campaign spending and behind only the Florida governors race with $133 million spent.When not attacking Nelson, Scott has run a series of make Washington workŽ proposals, that includes term limits for members of Congress and docking congressional pay when timely budgets arent approved.But a recurring swipe from Scott is that Nelson has been inside the Beltway too long, having served 18 years in the Senate „ after an earlier 12 years in Congress. In between, Nelson was a state Cabinet member and earlier served in the state Legislature.Nelson casts himself as free-thinking senator, although Congressional Quarterly finds he has voted with his party 89 percent of the time since elected to the chamber.After Tuesday, there will be room for only one of them in Washington.

of jobs to lower-wage Mexico. And it could result in better working conditions and perhaps higher pay for Mexicos long-suffering laborers.But shifting away from a business model that relies on Mexican labor would likely mean higher-priced cars for American consumers. And North Americas auto-makers could become less competitive compared with rivals in Europe and Asia. Its going to be harder to keep North America competitive as a manufacturing hub,Ž said Michael McAdoo of the Boston Consulting Group.Whats more, much of the manufacturing work that does return to the United States would likely be done by robots in Americas increas-ingly automated plants, not by human workers.The deal „ known by its acronym, USMCA „ is meant to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement. Trump had long condemned the 24-year-old NAFTA as a killer of American jobs. He even banished its name once the new deal was struck.NAFTA had erased most trade barriers separating the United States, Canada and Mexico. Trade among the three surged. But many U.S. manufacturers moved factories and jobs to Mexico to capitalize on cheaper labor. Those manufacturers could then ship cars and other goods back to the United States and Canada, duty-free.Trump demanded a new deal more favorable to American workers. Negotiations began in August 2017 and eventu-ally produced USMCA.These measures will support many hundreds of thousands of American jobs,Ž Trump declared early last month.USMCA isnt a done deal. It has yet to be signed by the leaders or ratified by the legislatures of the three countries. Some Democrats have expressed support for the pact. But if their party regains control of the U.S. House in Tuesdays elec-tions, its far from clear that its leaders would want to hand Trump a victory.Whats more, Canadian and Mexican lawmakers might think twice about ratifying the deal unless Trump frees them from the import taxes hes imposed on steel and aluminum in a separate dispute.

The Democrats opposition to Trump infuriates her. They just hate him as a person so much they cant see what hes done for the country,Ž Hachten said.Brandon Evans, 36, was cleaning out his parents storage room in the Salt Lake City suburb of West Jordan on Saturday when he got an unexpected visit from his Republican congresswoman, Mia Love. Love, who faces a tough re-election challenge, traveled through her largely suburban district in an orange-and-blue modified motor scooter, knocking on every door she could.Evans assured her she had his vote because of gun rights. I feel like theyre under attack more than theyve ever been,Ž Evans said.Campaigns pulled out the heavy hitters. Trump continued to hopscotch the nation. On Sunday, hours before Trump was supposed to speak for his partys gubernatorial candidate in Georgia, Brian Kemp, his supporters lined up for nearly half a mile while Lynyrd Skynyrds Free BirdŽ played and vendors sold Trump gear. Cindy West was adamant in her support for the GOP ticket. I dont want to be a state that gives sanctuary to illegals,Ž West said. Im a teacher, and Ive watched our own students suffer because of Hispanic people coming into the system. The money it takes to educate them is being taken away from our own students.ŽVice President Mike Pence traveled far and wide as well.

Eighteen-year-old Katherine Morgan let out a squeak of joy when she learned that not only had the man she called already voted, but he also had a sign for Tony Evers, the Democratic gubernatorial nominee, in his front yard.I want to be changing things day in and day out,Ž Morgan, a University of Wisconsin freshman, said. You cant complain if you dont contribute.ŽIn West Palm Beach, Florida, just a few miles from Trumps Mar-a-Lago estate, legendary singer Jimmy Buffett tried to fire up Democrats for gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum and Sen.

McSally, a former combat pilot, has accused Sinema of treasonŽ for comments about the Afghanistan War in 2002 while Democrats have been hammering McSally over her vote to repeal President Barack Obamas health care law.Lately, as Trump has tried to raise fear of a caravan of Central American migrants trying to cross Mexico on foot to reach the U.S. border, McSally has taken to slamming Sinema on immi-gration. Those thoughts were on the mind of Stephen Ovanessoff, a retired church deacon and pathologist, at a church visited by Republican Rep. David Schweikert as part of the congressmans own get-out-the-vote efforts Saturday.There should definitively be a strong border, especially for a country like the United States,Ž said Ovanessoff, who emigrated from Iraq. Because if you go outside to other countries, there are millions and millions of people everywhere that want to come and live in this country.ŽIn Tempe, outside Sun Devil Stadium, where thousands gathered for the game Saturday wearing the teams bright yellow colors, Sinema was mobbed by well-wish-ers asking for hugs and selfies. Sinema teaches two courses on social work at the university and has multiple degrees from the school, and was widely recognized, even by ticket scalpers. PUSHFrom Page A1 RISKFrom Page A1

PAGE 9 | Monday, November 5, 2018 A9 Scientists warn that a seven-degree Fahrenheit rise in global temperatures would be catastrophic to human society. The Trump administration says it is going to happen regardless of what the government does, so it is best to do nothing and watch the world fry. That is the logicŽ of a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration environmental impact statement, which might have gone unnoticed if The Posts reporters had not dug through the document for a recent story. Thedocument predicts the Earth will warm seven degrees by the end of the century without major changes in where humans get their energy, but also proposed to neuter a program designed to aid that transition. Rolling back the Obama-era program, which demanded more fuel-efficient vehicles, will result in an additional 8 billion tons of carbon dioxide spewing into the air this century, about as much as the whole country releases in a year. The document argues that, if the rest of the world does nothing, the tailpipe rule will not have much effect and the world will warm uncontrollably „ so why bother? Of course, the Trump administration is not just tearing up car efficiency standards but an entire suite of globalwarming rules that President Barack Obama approved, including on power plants, oil and gas production, and other industrial activities. Taken together, the impact of these policies on the planets future would have been significant. True, it would not have been nearly enough without commensurate effort on the part of other countries. But U.S. participation in the Paris global-warming agreement, the worlds best chance to get all major polluters moving together to cut emissions, would have helped bring other countries along. And President Donald Trump pulled the United States out of it, too. Once the exit is official, the United States will be the only country in the world not party to the pact. If catastrophic warming materializes, it will be in part because of the ruinous choices the Trump administration has made over the past two years. In response to criticisms about their do-nothing attitude, Republicans often respond that U.S. greenhouse-gas emissions are dropping even without the strong federal push Obama envisioned. That is true, but they are not dropping enough, and they are dropping in large part because natural gas, which burns cleaner than coal, has become plentiful and cheap. Trump wants to fight that fuel-switching and boost coal. Methane, the primary component in natural gas, is a powerful greenhouse agent if it wafts into the atmosphere unburned, which research suggests is occurring at an unacceptably high rate at U.S. gas facilities. And, yes, the Trump administration is curbing rules meant to cut methane leaks, too. Trump and the rest of the climate-ignoring bunch will go down as the Neville Chamberlains of our time, favoring timidity and acquiescence in the face of an existential global threat. The Washington PostANOTHER OPINIONDoing nothing while the world fries ANOTHER OPINION By Marc B. TerrillLast Monday, my family drove from Baltimore to Pittsburgh, where my wife was born and raised and much of our family remains, to pay respects to those killed in the mass shooting this weekend. And on Tuesday, as I stood outside the Rodef Shalom synagogue, where the first funerals were to be held, my heart was racing „ and quickly breaking from grief and disbelief. Of the 11 souls brutally gunned down, two were cousins of my wife. Brothers Cecil and David Rosenthal were gentle, kind, fun loving, life embracing individuals. They were what is good and decent about humanity. And now, along with nine other remarkable people, they are gone. All had stories, hopes and dreams. All gone. What happened at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh could easily have happened anywhere. Such events have become all too common in our country. I dont intend to dive into the political rhetoric that follows tragedy, however, but to share my very personal perspective on it, now that it has hit so close to my heart. Listening to the eulogies, I wondered: How did we get here? How, could a person be so consumed by hatred that he entered a place of worship, screaming words of hate as he killed good people „ mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters and cousins „ just because they were Jewish. How did we get here? How in this modern era is hate still so prevalent? On this occasion, the individuals were Jewish, but we are all deeply aware that you could insert many categories of people into this scenario „ black, Muslim, LGBTQ and so on. The art of listening has virtually disappeared. We have become scarily lazy. We do not endeavor to learn about the other. And, the toxic default is anti-Semitism, racism, homophobia, Islamophobia; the disgusting list goes on. If we value civilization, if we value our country and what it stands for, if we value humanity, if we value a life of fulfillment and joy, we must begin to authentically hear and acknowledge the other.Ž Absorb their points of view. Learn from their perspectives. Genuinely talk to one another. Get to know your neighbor. You just might change and form an understanding and appreciation that will amaze you. Already, from this tragedy, I see a glimmer of what can be. In Pittsburgh, in Baltimore and throughout the world, diverse people of varied backgrounds are coming together in support, appreciation and love of thy neighbor. On Friday, The Associated Jewish Community Federation and Baltimore Jewish Council co-sponsored an Interfaith Oneg Shabbat. This event was as diverse as our city and as loving, joyful and fulfilling as life should be. We stood together resolving to do our share. We stood united in the face of bigotry and demonstrated that love of mankind can conquer evil. And on Saturday, Jews and those who are of other faiths poured in record numbers into area synagogues in unity, love and humanity at Baltimores Solidarity Shabbat. Shabbat is a time of renewal to close the week that has been „ and to welcome the new. We entered this Shabbat with heavy hearts, resilience and hope for a better tomorrow. People can and do change. As my Yemeni born, Muslim friend who was raised to detest JewsŽ proclaimed to me in a text last Sunday: Marc, today we stand together. In love and humanity. I pray that we can peacefully walk together down lifes path.Ž We hear of these events. We emote and try to understand. We may even raise our voices and act as best we can to varying depths and degrees. All important. All noble. But, clearly not enough. To Cecil, David and the nine other extraordinary people „ a former Little League coach, a doting grandfather, a vibrant 97 year old, a couple married for more than 60 years, a primary care physician, a one-time research specialist, a community dentist and a beloved retiree „ I pray that your memory will be for a blessing.

He wrote this for the Baltimore Sun.ANOTHER OPINIONSynagogue shooting very personal to this Jewish leader OPINIONSteve Skaggs | Publisher Tom McNiff | Executive Editor Whitney Lehnecker | Digital Editor, Lifestyles Editor Tom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 tom.mcniff@dailycommercial.comBy Don KuslerPresident Donald Trump sending U.S. military troops to the border on the eve of the election is a political ploy and would be way off base even if its intentions were pure. With his presidency and his party's prospects looking bleak for the upcoming midterm elections Trump has launched into a calculated campaign of misinformation and division. The goal is obvious. Distract, divide and at least slow the political momentum building against his presidency. By stoking fear and dividing Americans in an effort to hold onto to power, Trump is playing a treacherous game with our democratic society. In the past several weeks the president has repeatedly attempted to fuel division on a range of topics but the central target is immigrants, refugees and people of color. Whether in tweets or at unruly rallies in key election districts Trump has repeated hateful and dishonest statements about immigrants and the traveling group of Honduran refugees seeking asylum. Do our immigration laws need improvement? Of course. Do we want our country to be safe? Without a doubt. However, Trump's hardline methods are cruel and ineffective. Separating families is a horrible, inhumane idea and is not slowing the flow of immigrants or refugees. The wall is a financial and policy joke. The recently reported attempt to reverse birthright citizenship for children born in the United States is simply un-American. And...the foolish and likely ineffective use of U.S. military troops as a purported deterrent at the border is just another politically (not policy) motivated action that experts even in his own administration believe to be unwise. This distract-and-divide tactic may be working, at least with certain populations who are part of Trump's base or live along the border. Sadly the president's demonization of the press and news agencies has created a buffer against criticism and fact checking of his rhetoric. I recently engaged, quite carefully, in a conversation about the refugee caravan with a relative in my home state of Texas. While I know this person to be fairly open in their thinking and voting it was clear that the misinformation campaign was taking hold in a region that sees an outsized impact from migration. Talk of danger, gangs, drugs and other favorite fearful and misinformed talking points being pushed by Trump and his allies quickly came up. However, when I explained that the people traveling north were seeking asylum from the very things being used to make Americans fearful the tone changed. I also noted that the number of people involved is roughly the size of a small Texas town and not some massive "invasion". Thinking about women and children fleeing for their lives, seeking safety, seeking a better life we agreed in the end that while challenges do exist, the humanity of being more understanding wins out. Through this, my conversational companion was reminded of the inhumanity of family separations. They were then reminding themselves of the hateful and misguided policies that Trump promotes. We also recalled how erratic and unprofessional his presidency has been. What we engaged in over the short but useful 15 minutes was dialogue that gave respectful space for conflicting opinions and experiences. While they were able to share some of the unique challenges of living in a border state, I was able to appeal to the human element so often minimized in all the heated rhetoric and we both went on our way better informed even if we may still not see the issue the same way. We need to throw a wet blanket on the heated, divisive language and policies stemming from Trump's political schemes. Stoking fears by talking about or enacting policies like family separation, ending birthright citizenship and sending troops to the border are not the way forward.

McCaffrey had 17 carries for 79 yards and five catches for 78 yards and turned in the play of the game when he leaped over a defender after a reception in the flat and kept going, turning it into a 32-yard gain. The Pan-thers (6-2) scored touchdowns on five straight possessions during the first half to build a commanding 35-7 lead before the Buccaneers battled back to within a touchdown early in the fourth quarter behind Ryan Fitzpatrick.But the return of "Fitzmagic" wasn't enough as Newton made it a two-possession game when he found Samuel, who made a leaping grab in the end zone with 9:10 left in the game. It was the second-year wide receiver's second TD of the game. He also scored on a 33-yard reverse.Fitzpatrick, who started in place of the turnover-prone Jameis Winston for Tampa Bay (3-5), finished with 243 yards passing and four touchdowns „ two each to Adam Humphries and O.J.

For a first-year linebacker, it was a surpris-ingly polished touchdown celebration.Baker bested fellow rookie Sam Darnold, scor-ing the game's only TD on a 25-yard interception return with 11 minutes left, and a resilient defense helped the Miami Dolphins beat the hapless New York Jets 13-6 on Sunday.Darnold threw four interceptions and took four sacks, and the Jets went 2 for 15 on third and fourth down.The hobbled Dolphins (5-4) endured another wave of injuries and the mysterious departure of safety Reshad Jones, who pulled himself out of the game. But their defense was much improved after three con-secutive poor games ."We never panicked; we knew what our defense was capable of," Baker said. "When we are executing and do our job and play together, we're one of the best defenses out there."The quality of the oppo-sition helped the defense dominate, however, allow-ing Miami to win with only seven first downs. Darnold tried to rally the sputtering Jets (3-6) from a 6-3 deficit, but following a punt the rookie took a high snap and made an ill-advised throw to tight end Eric Tomlinson. Baker stepped in front for his first career interception and scored untouched."I didn't throw it with confidence," Darnold said. "I just alligator-armed it „ threw it a little bit short."Much of the game was a slog, but Baker provided a video highlight celebrating with his teammates."There is nothing like it," he said, game ball cradled under his arm. "It is the sweetest feeling ever, especially getting in the end zone, seeing your brothers running toward you."T.J. McDonald and Walt Aikens made interceptions to end the Jets' final two possessions."The guys did a good job of complementary foot-ball," Dolphins coach Adam Gase said. "They played together. They did a good job of stopping the run and making it as one-dimen-sional as possible."Miami broke a two-game losing streak and won for only the second time in the past six games. Gase improved to 5-1 against the Jets, including two wins this year.The Jets lost their third in a row and have scored Interceptions help Dolphins beat Jets, 136See SUMTER, B3See DOLPHINS, B3By Stephen HawkinsAP Sports WriterFORT WORTH, Texas (AP) „ Kevin Harvick earned a shot at another NASCAR Cup championship, rocketing past polesitter Ryan Blaney in overtime Sunday to win at Texas.Another late caution led to a third restart in the final 35 laps, each time with Harvick leading. Harvick led 177 of the 337 laps.After taking the inside on the first two restarts, and briefly losing the lead after the second one, Harvick opted to start from outside for the green-white-checkered finish. By time they got to the backstretch, Harvick had pushed his No. 4 Ford in front and raced to his eighth win of this season.I thought if I could keep him from finishing the corner I could drive back by him,Ž Harvick said. It all worked out.ŽIt is the second year in a row that Harvick, the 2014 Cup champion, won the fall race at Texas to get into the final four. Of his 32 starts in the Lone Star State, his only two wins are the last two fall races, but those are among his 20 top-10 finishes there.This place has been really good to me. Im glad we got the win again here,Ž he said.Harvick also won both stages at the 1 -mile Texas track, the fourth time this season he did that and went on to win the race.With Joey Logano and Harvick locked in after winning the past two races, the series goes to Phoenix next week with only two spots up for grabs for the champion-ship run at Homestead in two weeks.Kyle Busch, a seven-time winner this year, and defend-ing Cup champion Martin Truex Jr. are among the other six title contenders. They are comfortably above the cut line for points, but Clint Bowyer, Aric Almirola, Kurt Busch or Chase Elliott could advance with a win in PhoenixAfter the first of the late restarts, Harvick was on the inside and was able to keep Blaney from clearing him on the backstretch. Harvick was already starting to rebuild his lead „ it had been nearly Harvick earns shot at Cup title See TITLE, B3

The Kenyans lead was growing over the strong womens field with every stride, and all she thought about was the finish line.Lelisa Desisa of Ethiopia didnt break out into a big grin until he pulled away from two opponents late in the race.In perfect crisp autumn weather for distance runners, Keitany and Desisa won the New York City Marathon on Sunday in near record times.Keitany, 36, became the second woman to win the marathon four times. She ran the race in 2 hours, 22 min-utes, 48 seconds, the second fastest time for the course in history. Margaret Okayo of Kenya set the record of 2:22:31 in 2003.I can say the course record was not in my mind,Ž Kei-tany said. For me, winning was the most important.ŽATLANTAMountaineers jump to 7th in AP pollNo. 7 West Virginia re-entered the top 10 of The Asso-ciated Press college football poll after another weekend in which the number of ranked teams losing reached double digits.Unanimous No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Clemson and No. 3 Notre Dame remained unchanged, and No. 4 Michi-gan, No. 5 Georgia and No. 6 Oklahoma each moved up a spot. The Mountaineers surged from No. 12 after beating Texas on a go-ahead 2-point conversion in final minute.Ten ranked teams lost this weekend, four in games against other ranked teams. Over the last two weeks, 21 ranked teams have lost, the most over a two-week span since the AP poll expanded to 25 in 1989.Iowa State was ranked for the first time this season, one of five teams to move into the ranking this week.Unbeaten No. 11 Central Florida fell two spots after beating Temple, 52-40. The Knights ran their winning streak to a nations best 21 straight games.No. 19 Florida dropped six spots after losing for the second straight week.Alabama remained No. 1 in the Amway Top 25 coaches poll. UCF was 11th and Florida was 21st. GAINESVILLEMilestone win for UF, WiseThe No. 11 Florida volleyball team placed four players in double-digit kills led by sophomore Paige Hammons match-high 16 and added 12 team blocks en route to a 3-1 victory over Southeastern Conference foe Arkansas before an Exactech Arena crowd of 2,768 Sunday. With the win, the Gators improved to 20-5 overall and 11-2 in SEC play while posting their 1,000th program victory. The Razorbacks, who fell by scores of 25-20, 15-25, 20-25 and 15-25, slipped to 10-12, 4-8 with the loss. It was another match where the opponent played error-free in that first set,Ž UF coach Mary Wise said. Thats what happens following a tough loss. It plants doubt, and so our team was just a little bit hesitant and Arkansas was playing so well. Thats a bad combination.Ž Hammons added 10 digs for a double-double and also had four service aces and four block assists as UF played its second straight match without standout freshman Thayer Hall, who remains sidelined with an undisclosed injury. Credit our players,Ž Wise said. I thought Paige Hammons couldnt have done anymore for us in terms of what she gave us from the back row or the front row. She played a huge role for us in terms of Thayers absence.

PAGE 13 | Monday, November 5, 2018 B333 points during the skid. They've dropped nine of their past 10 road games dating to 2017. Darnold went 21 for 39 for 229 yards and a passer rating of 31.8. He came into the game tied for the NFL lead with 10 interceptions and the four picks were a new high."Two for sure he'd like to have back," coach Todd Bowles said. "Back to the drawing board."Cameron Wake and Akeem Spence had two sacks apiece for the Dol-phins, who had allowed 102 points the previous three weeks."Everybody playing together, front to back side to side, and getting a win, that's about as rewarding as it is," Wake said. TO THE BENCHJones, whose tendency to freelance has been an issue, watched the second half from the sideline. Gase said he didn't know whether Jones was hurt."It sounds like he pulled himself out," Gase said. "I've just got to find out what happened there."Jones didn't talk to the media after the game. DOLPHINS SUBMiami totaled only 168 yards, but Brock Osweiler improved to 2-2 as a starter filling in for the injured Ryan Tannehill Osweiler went 15 for 24 for 139 yards and took four sacks, but his unit committed no turnovers."It was just a good old-fashioned fight on the field, and it was fun," Osweiler said. "We won." INJURY REPORTDolphins: LT Laremy Tunsil (knee) left in the fourth quarter. ... RT Ja'Wuan James (knee) departed in the first half, but later returned. ... CB Bobby McCain was evalu-ated for a concussion. ... DE Robert Quinn limped off in the field in the clos-ing minutes.Jets: Backup LB Tarell Basham (knee) left the game in the second half. NATIONAL ANTHEMDolphins receiver Kenny Stills kneeled during the anthem and Quinn stood with his right fist raised, as they have done before other games. DOLPHINSFrom Page B1 Jacksonville Bolles.That led to a full-blown rebuilding year last season as South Sumter went 0-9 while replacing a big senior class. This year the Raiders have the motto of REDemption and a .500 record against a strong schedule was enough to take the sixth seed in Class 4A-Region 2.South Sumter will play at Dunnellon (5-5) on Friday night at 7:30 in a rematch of an Oct. 5 game that saw the Tigers take a 42-21 win.Wildwood (5-5) also overcame adversity this year, including a coaching change after the first game of the season, to make the playoff field for the second time in a row.The Wildcats dropped three of their first four games this season before going 4-2 the rest of the way. Wildwoods final regular season game was a 42-34 loss to The Villages.The Wildcats are the No. 6 seed in Class 1A-Region 4 and will travel to third-seeded Frostproof (6-4) on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. The Bulldogs knocked Wildwood out of the playoffs last year with a 59-38 win in the first round. SUMTERFrom Page B1The Villages Mac Harris (2) dodges a Wildwood defender on Oct. 26 in Wildwood. Both teams are in the playoffs, with The Villages getting a “ rst-round bye as the top seed in the region.

[AP PHOTO/ LYNNE SLADKY] 4 seconds before the caution „ when another yellow flag came out.Harvick was on the inside again for the next restart, before Blaney was able to get by him on the outside and into the lead. Blaney led seven laps before Harvick went under him and was again putting distance between them before Joey Gases spin brought out the last of eight cautions.They were hard. They were challenging,Ž Blaney said about the restarts. That was really the only shot we had to beat him, to be honest with you. We got by him one restart and I just couldnt hold him off. ... The last one, he took the top, like I knew he was going to go. He motored around me.ŽTruex, who was close to clinching a title spot before that bump-and-run by Logano on the final lap to win at Martinsville last week, finished ninth after at Texas.Truex had to start at the rear of the field because of an engine change. He also had a pass-through penalty during the race for driv-ing through too many pit boxes, and was a lap down before getting that back one the first of the late cautions.Logano was third at Texas. Elliott was sixth, followed by Kurt Busch and Almirola, who had also gone to the rear at the start of the race for unapproved body modi-fications. Kyle Busch was 17th and Bowyer 26th after starting on the front row but making contact with Denny Hamlin on the first lap.

DEAR ABBY: I'm a 34-year-old man who lives with my father, who is 76 years old. I'm currently without a job, but when I have one, I buy food and whatever else is needed for the house. I believe I'm doing my fair share. I love my father dearly, but I can't stand him as a person. He can be very rude and verbally abusive. He has told people we know very personal things about me. When we're visiting family, if I ask for something to eat or drink, he'll answer, "No! You don't need anything." (I can tell that the relatives are annoyed by him, too.) Dad played a major role in ruining a relationship with a woman I was dating. I don't invite any of my new friends over because I know he'll have something sarcastic to say. He also accuses me of not doing any cleaning around the house, but he fails to notice that I have done it at night while he was asleep. I rarely converse with him because we have nothing in common. He takes almost no interest in what I have to say, even when I tell him about something I saw on TV. He says, "Well, you shouldn't be watching that." I keep my mouth shut because I need a place to live, but day by day, more and more, my rage is building, and I want to tell him off. Help, please. -LIVING WITH A TYRANT DEAR LIVING: Do not tell him off. Although you may be living "rent-free," you are paying plenty for the "privilege" of staying under his roof. It appears your father resents having you there as much as you dislike being there. Do whatever you can to nd a job. When you do, save every penny. And, for the sake of your self-respect, move out as quickly as possible so you can start living a normal life. You may need to nd a roommate, but anything would be better than this.DEAR ABBY: My husband and I took our granddaughters, 16 and 13, on a two-week cruise to Europe this past summer. We had a wonderful time with them. To make a long story short, the 16-year-old, "Megan," conded to us that she's afraid of failing. She's a straight-A student and a perfectionist when it comes to her classes. We want to make sure we use the correct words with her. These girls are precious to us, and we're very close. Megan sent us an emotional thank-you note for the trip, as did her sister. She seems to do all the right things. We just don't want her to put excessive pressure on herself. We're almost 80, and they keep us young. Those girls rock our world. Could you tell us how to handle this? -LOVING GRANDMA IN ARIZONA DEAR GRANDMA: Tell Megan that you love her and she rocks your world. Then assure her your feelings about her will never change regardless of whether she succeeds or fails at whatever she does. Nobody wants to fail, but most successful people will tell you they learned more from their failures than they did from their successes. Tell her that worse than failure is being so afraid that she isn't willing to try. Then advise her to talk to her parents about her fears, or a counselor at school if she needs more help.

Call Classieds Today!352-314-FAST (3278) HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR MONDAY, NOV. 5, 2018:This year you have a tendency to keep your own counsel. You might not know how to deal with a difcult person, and will reect on this matter for a long time. If you are single, take your time dating someone. Wait about a year to be sure that you really know this person. Make no long-term commitments unless you are sure of the bond. If you are attached, you sometimes feel that your sweetie misunderstands you. Take a communication workshop together. LIBRA works well with difcult people. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) You often encounter mental blocks or people who have issues, and you might wonder why. Do your best not to give in to someones need for control. You have strong drive and energy. You will get done what is necessary. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Your instinct might be to defer to a difcult, controlling individual. You know that you have it together. Perhaps this person doesnt realize that his or her behavior is an attempt to hide insecurities. Be more upbeat in how you handle your work. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Your creativity surges. Others have a difcult time keeping up with you. You leap over hurdles and exhibit an unusual amount of effectiveness. Be willing to rearrange your schedule if need be. Know when taking action helps others. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) You might be more in the mood to stay home than go out. Consider moving your work to a home ofce or making an adjustment in your chosen eld. Your productivity is likely to be enhanced by being in a place that you love and feel comfortable. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) You speak your mind, and others hear you. Their responses could be dened by the levels of diplomacy that you use. Youll want to put the kibosh on someones acting out. Remain cool, calm and collected. Others could give you an earful. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) When handling funds, you cant be too careful. Say no when necessary. Dont let a new friend affect your nancial life. Be more direct in how you handle a difcult friend or associate. You might need to express your limits. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Your personality carries you over any obstacle you might encounter. Make sure that the hitch is not a self-imposed limitation. Be clear with a family member about your boundaries. Express the expectation that this person should honor your needs. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You sense that something you cant control is going on behind the scenes. You cannot even get the whole story -at least not yet. Ignore the situation for now and just pretend that everything is business as usual. If you need to, ask a friend for feedback. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) You might not be sure of the best way to make your point so that the majority of people will understand your message. Your smile goes a long way. Encourage others to ask questions and make suggestions. Make people feel as if they are participants. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) You might not realize how tough you can be on others. You have a tendency to speak without thinking rst. You are in a process of change. Remember that keeping up with your swift changes could be a problem for many people in your life. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Your smiling ways come forward, allowing greater give-and-take. You see a situation from a new perspective. You see people differently, and you also see where your actions might not be effective. If you are not sure how to proceed, ask for suggestions. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) One-on-one relating suits you perfectly. You might not get the results you desire, but you will come to terms with a difcult situation. It might be obvious to you but not to others that a change is needed. Work toward that end. A friend seeks you out. | Monday, November 5, 2018 B5 TODAY IS MONDAY, NOV. 5, the 309th day of 2018.
