Thats our main focus right now,Ž he said. Weeks le not monthsBy Katie LandeckNews HeraldPANAMA CITY „ In one bed slept a 7-year-old who had the sense to gather up her little brother, mothers purse and her familys medication when the roof peeled off her home.In another bed, a woman whose last remaining piece of furniture is a cherry dresser that somehow survived her apartment collapsing around it played with some children.In a back room, a woman tried to figure out if there was a way to use a rice cooker she grabbed after the front of her home was blown away to cook a meal for her grandkids. About 400 people were still crowded into the emergency shelter set up by the American Red Cross at Rutherford High School on Saturday morning, each with their own story of survival and often times very little left.We have no shoes, no socks,Ž said Aricka Roundtree, who was walking around the shelter in bare feet. We need toothbrushes, socks, even flip flops. We need the bare necessities.Ž A tense anxiety had settled over the shelter, as people struggled to continue to be patient with the circum-stances. The food was edible, but not good, people said. Concerns about medical con-ditions people said were going unaddressed or being minimally treated because little was available. You cant beat the GodsAdrian Brown, 3, sleeps at the emergency shelter at Rutherford High School after Hurricane Michael on Saturday, October 13, 2018. As windows broke and the roof peeled away during the storm his 7-year-old sister AEria Brown grabbed him, cellphones and her mothers medication and brought them to a safe spot under the stairs in their home. Since then they and their mother Ashley Brown have stayed at the emergency shelter.

The situation has meant little sharing of information between family and friends, but also potential danger for emergency personnel like police who need quick communication to protect the community and each other.Jordan said even with a partially working phone, its remained difficult to get any information about the recovery or what dona-tions or charity services might be available.Weve gotten some information, but not a lot,Ž Jordan said. I think today Im going to get our camper hooked back up and get digital satellite.ŽCommunication, info still scarce after hurricaneThe Jinx Middle School gym is missing walls on Oct. 11 in Panama City.

And, despite the port-apotties, a stench of human waste was starting to perco-late through the area.But still, there were plenty of stories of hope as people marveled at what they had been through and small acts of kindness.All my 3-year-old wanted was a truck,Ž Ashley Brown said. And one of the volunteers found him one.ŽIt was Browns 7-year-old who gathered up her young-est child as the roof tore away from her home in the intense storm.We heard a pop and the water started coming in,Ž Brown said. We tried to get a mattress by the window, but by the time we got the mattress up the roof was lifting up.ŽIt was at that point her daughter showed up, purse in hand, brother by her side ready to take control.She said, Mama, I got it, mama I got it,Ž her grand-mother Roundtree said.They drove to the shelter in the back of a pickup truck like Dukes of Hazzard,Ž Roundtree added, while the winds were still blowing.A few beds over Kayla Cromer and Katelan Moses swore Pierre Guitroz saved their lives when he rounded them up in the middle of the night and got them out of the apartment as the wind tore off parts of their building.Im not going to lie, I tried to run back upstairs because I was scared, but Pierre said no,Ž Cromer said. He said no, were going.ŽCromers car got them all to the shelter, and after that it stopped working.When they walked back the day after the storm to get a change if clothes, the dev-astation was overwhelming.The only thing standing in my house was a wooden cherry dresser,Ž Moses said. Thats the only thing.ŽGuitroz wasnt talkative, instead taking a protective stance to the side, but what he did say was he lived through Katrina and without the water, this is the same.Ž Away from the main room, Yong Herbert was setting up a psuedo-home for her and her grandkids in a classroom. From her home, she had brought coolers full of food as much as she could and she was getting ready to make some chicken soup and hoping to find an outlet for her rice cooker.They love rice,Ž she said, pointing to the two boys who were alternating between playing schoolŽ by doing science and math problems on an off smartboard and playing with a nerf gun.Herbert said she thought her home was going to make it through the storm, especially when all the big trees in her yard fell the right way. But once the trees fell, the wind caught her porch and that was that.We tried to prepare, but you know, you obviously cant beat the Gods,Ž Her-bert said. SHELTERFrom Page A1Help families get back to some normalcy as quickly as possible.ŽAccording to Husfelt, the district will begin looking at schools on Monday to determine which campuses are still usable. So far, the district knows that most schools situated in Panama City Beach sus-tained minimal damage or are damage free. Some schools in town only have damage to one or two building, leaving the rest of campus in working order.Once the district has a better idea of infrastruc-ture status, they will begin creating schedules to best utilize the schools for all students.To accomplish this, Hus-felt said they are thinking outside of the box. One possibility in consideration is arranging two schools to utilize one campus by having a morn-ing school and an afternoon school. He has already asked principals to team up and take a look at how a split schedule could operate.Thats not that unusual,Ž said Husfelt. It happens in a lot of places, especially in emergency situations like this.ŽHusfelt says he is trying to impact families as little as possible. Employees of Bay Dis-trict Schools will continue to be paid and there are no plans to take away summer break from students for more than a week to ten days to make up for this time away. He also says high school college preparatory pro-grams like AICE and IB will not be endangered.Husfelt says he does anticipate more schools to be opened as shelters, but those decisions will be made by EOC. Counseling and medical care is on the way to shelters.Its traumatic what weve been through but were going to overcome it and well get school started up as quickly as possible,Ž he said.Husfelt plans to send questions to both Florida governor candidates to see their plans for best serving our students as they recover from this devastation.To outside entities look-ing to help, ice, water, gas, food, and baby diapers are needed. To donate, contact the EOC or the Salvation Army."If you are looking to donate but aren't sure what to send," Husfelt said, As a guide, if you were going camping, what would you take with you?Ž SCHOOLFrom Page A1Nearby on 11th Street, Pastor Paul McComack of Trinity Lutheran Church prepared a Sunday service for a congre-gation without knowing if they would even to make it there. "Ive still got a lot of church members I have not heard from,Ž McComack said Sunday morning. Ill probably start going door to door to check on them.ŽMcComack said he evacuated to Hattiesburg before the hurricane and returned on Friday with a budget AT&T phone to communicate.Its working mostly ƒ I posted on Facebook that we would have services today for those who could see it,Ž he said.Lisa Parauka, Trinity member, said her Verizon phone has been useless and shes had to rely on her sons budget phone, which an AT+& service.Its been very spotty but I have been communicating with my daughter in Tennessee and my other son at Troy University and theyve been dispatching information to others,Ž Parauka said.Much of the issue has been Verizon, which reported a county wide outage of its network after the hurricane struck.According to a Saturday press release from Verizon, the telecommunications company has focused the majority of its restoration work in Panama City, Panama City Beach and surrounding communities.No timetable was given for when service might be restored.The press release states that with much of the downed trees and other debris now cleared, crews can reach and repair the fiber that connects the Veri-zon network and carries data between cell sites.While we have multiple fiber paths to carry data, the severity and intensity of the storm caused damage to all duplicate routes in the Panama City and Panama City Beach area,Ž the press release states. Our crews are making good progress repairing dam-aged fiber lines and laying new fiber, resulting in the restora-tion of three cell sites, and we will not rest until service is fully restored.ŽThe company added that its tower and engineering crews are assessing tower damage, replacing and repairing equip-ment and keeping generators at towers fueled and running until electricity is restored.Bay County Sheriff Tommy Ford said communication for his department has been spotty at best this past week. His deputies all use Verizon phones. Also, much of the departments radio service was knocked out, he said.Not being able to talk to these guys going out into Armageddon ƒ its frustrat-ing and dangerous,Ž Ford said. Our business is about sharing information.ŽFord said that in the early days following the storm, Gov. Rick Scott helped his depart-ment quickly get 200 AT&T phones for his department and other area law enforce-ment agencies.Its helped us put arms around the situation and talk to one another,Ž Ford said.Jeff Rogers, spokesman for Gulf Power, said the company has managed to get restoration work done despite the inabil-ity to communicate easily. Rogers said crews have had to communicate mainly the way the used to before cell phones existed, having morn-ing meetings, driving to spots and telling workers where they need repair lines.Rogers said the company, over the last few days, obtained phones from mul-tiple carriers that work in the disaster zones. Gulf Power has also brought portable cell phone equipment to boost sig-nals, Rogers said.Its a lot harder on every-body, but I dont think weve missed a beat,Ž Rogers said of the communication problems. It may not be as efficient, but were communicating differently.Ž SERVICEFrom Page A1 Left: Khalil Hebert, 7, and Jeremiah Hebert, 6, play with a toy dart gun in a classroom at Rutherford High School after Hurricane Michael on Saturday, October 13, 2018.

** The News Herald | Monday, October 15, 2018 A3By Jim ThompsonGateHouse Media FloridaTYNDALL AFB „ Tyndall has been destroyed.Ž That bleak assessment was the first sentence spoken by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., following a Sunday morning briefing with leadership of Tyndall Air Force Base near Panama City, which took a direct hit from Hurricane Michael as the storm churned through the Panhandle on Wednesday. Nelson got a firsthand look at the damage inflicted by Hurricane Michael at Tyndall AFB, which took a direct hit from the storm. All of the older buildings on the base, home to more than 3,500 airmen and workplace for more than 10,000 people, were leveled by the hurricane, Nelson said in a telephone interview early Sunday afternoon. Even the new buildings on the base sustained significant damage, Nelson said.The older buildings will have to be razed and rebuilt,Ž Nelson said after his Sunday briefing. The newer structures on the base that have survived the monster storm will need substantial repairs.ŽBut Nelson also took time Sunday to address what he called (f)ears (that) have sur-faced in some news accounts that Tyndall might be closed in the wake of the storm, as was Homestead (AFB) in South Florida after Hurricane Andrew in 1992.ŽThose fears are unfounded, Nelson said, in large part because Tyndall is located alongside the Gulf Test Range, nearly 120,000 square miles in the eastern Gulf of Mexico used for high-altitude supersonic air combat train-ing, air-to-air missile testing, drone targeting, hypersonic weapons testing and space launches.The base, Nelson said, is critical not only to our national security, but to our economy as well.ŽIn a statement, Nelson said he expects all of the necessary resources and funds to be available for rebuilding the entire base because, he said, it is a vital component of our national defense.Ž Late last week, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., sent a letter to Air Force leadership„ the letter was also signed by Nelson and U.S. Rep. Neal Dunn, R-Fla., whose district includes Tyndall AFB„ asking that the three lawmakers be provided with quick and detailed informa-tion on the funding and other support needed to rebuild the base.In a Sunday telephone interview, Nelson said Tyn-dall will be rebuilt as an Air Force base of the future.Ž The senator provided little additional detail about the future of the base Sunday, as his schedule also had him visiting the emergency operations centers in coun-ties affected by the Category 4 storm.Nelson did say, though, that the immediate focus of base leadership is making the facility safe for its airmen to return and begin their personal recoveries from Hurricane Michael.Nelson praised base leadership for evacuating the base in advance of Hurricane Michael.(T)he good news is military commanders successfully evacuated 11,000 base personnel and their families in advance of the unprecedent-edly strong storm,Ž Nelson said in a statement released after his Sunday briefing at Tyndall AFB.Later on Sunday, Secre-tary of the Air Force Heather Wilson, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein and Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force Kaleth O. Wright were scheduled to brief the media on their impressions of the damage and future plans for the base. That media availability, however, came after deadline for the print edition of todays newspaper.In a related development, the Associated Press reported Sunday that President Donald Trump plans to travel to Flor-ida and Georgia today to view damage caused by the storm.Tyndall has been destroyedA soldier stands guard Thursday at the damaged entrance to Tyndall Air Force Base near Panama City in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael.

One hangar was destroyed and a few others had their doors damaged. The terminal roof also sustained damage.Flights resumed around 6 a.m. Thursday with helicopters and other aircraft from the National Guard, which set up a command center at the air-port, according to airport executive director Parker McClellan.The airport was very fortunate, we had just minor damage,Ž he said.Air carrier services reopened on Friday with Delta Airlines and American Airlines, and United Airlines and Southwest Airlines became opera-tional over the weekend.We are back to all four airlines providing service,Ž said McClellan. We do have limited operations as a result of the (dusk) curfew, so we are really limited to air carrier opera-tions during daylight hours only.Ž However, he had no idea when the curfew would be lifted.We want to make sure that a lot of work gets done at night during the curfew,Ž he said. What we want to do is support the agencies and the companies that are out there repairing the power, water and utilities, and give them the opportu-nity to work.ŽAs of now, McClellan plans to continue to have the airport act as a base camp for the National Guard and help them aid the areas that were leveled by the natural disaster.Were going to do what we can do as a essential part of our community,Ž he said. The aviation support came out of the airport, and were glad that we were able to provide it in an efficient manner to enable this community to begin the process of restoration.ŽAll carriers resume ights at PanamaCity airport

** The News Herald | Monday, October 15, 2018 A7By Jim Saunders The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE„ Gov. Rick Scott on Sunday directed the states top insurance regulator to freeze any potential property-insurance rate increases for 90 days as homeowners and businesspeople grapple with massive damage from Hurricane Michael.Scott also directed Insurance Commissioner David Altmaier to require rescinding for 90 days all policy non-renewals or cancellations that had been issued in the days leading up to Michael to give poli-cyholders more time to find coverage. In another move, insurance policyholders will be given an extra 90 days to provide required information to insurers.It was not immediately clear how many policyholders could be affected by the directives. But state Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis, in a statement released by Scotts office, pointed to the massive damage caused by Michael, which made landfall Wednesday in Mexico Beach as a Cate-gory 4 storm and pounded Panama City and other areas of the Panhandle and the states Big Bend.Entire communities have been wiped off the map,Ž Patronis, a Panama City native, said in the statement. I cant say this enough: The damage is catastrophic. As our neighbors and communities assess the damage and start recovering, the last thing they need to worry about is if their insurance coverage will be dropped for non-payment. Our focus is saving lives, restoring power and repairing communications system. Im calling on insurance companies to keep that at the front of their minds and not take advantage of this disaster.ŽIt remains too early to pinpoint the amount of damage caused by Michael. But as an indication, the Property Casualty Insur-ers Association of America issued a preliminary estimate Thursday that said insured losses could total $2 billion to $4.5 billion.The state-backed Citizens Property Insurance Corp. has set up temporary centers in Panama City and Tallahassee to help policy-holders with claims. The centers will operate from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at a Sams Club at 1707 West 23rd St. in Panama City, and at a Walmart Supercenter at 4021 Lagniappe Way in Tallahassee. Insurance claims will be part of the recovery from Michael that will take months to play out.Shorter term, state and local officials are focused on issues such as restoring electricity, with utility crews converging on Northwest Florida from various parts of the country. As of noon Sunday, 191,361 utility customers lacked power, according to Scotts office.Gulf Power, which serves hard-hit areas including Bay County, released a schedule Sunday that showed gradual power restoration expected in its service territory over the next 10 days.Areas of Panama City Beach, for example, were expected to be restored Sunday and Monday, but downtown Panama City and communities such as Callaway and Lynn Haven are estimated to be restored by Oct. 24. Areas of Washington, Jackson and Holmes counties are gradually expected to be restored by Friday.We know that our cus-tomers are counting on us, so they can begin rebuild-ing their lives,Ž Stan Connally, chairman, CEO and president of the Pensacola-based utility said in a prepared statement. We are working safely and aggressively around the clock to get the lights back on.ŽState freezes insurance rates after Michael FEMA Administrator Brock Long, left, and Florida Gov. Rick Scott talk Sunday in Mexico Beach. [DAVID GOLDMAN/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]

** The News Herald | Monday, October 15, 2018 B3By Ralph D. RussoThe Associated PressSome Saturdays it just sort of feels as if no one knows anything about college foot-ball when all the teams we thought were good dont play that way.It was one of those days when you could be excused for thinking that everybodys terrible „ except No. 1 Ala-bama Four of the top eight teams lost, including two „ No. 6 West Virginia and No. 8 Penn State „ to unranked teams. The number of unbeatens was down to eight after No. 19 Colorado finished the day by being exposed by USC. Four teams „ Washington, Penn State, Wisconsin and Miami „ that started the season in the AP top 10 were basically eliminated from the playoff race.A slew of other highly ranked teams barely avoided big upsets. No. 5 Notre Dame No. 9 Texas and No. 10 UCF all escaped with narrow vic-tories against unranked teams „ the Fighting Irish and Longhorns doing so at home against double-digit underdogs. No. 14 Florida needed to rally from 18 down to beat Vanderbilt and No. 3 Ohio State spent most of the game trying to shake Minnesota .None of those inspired much confidence, but a wins a win, and on this day that was not to be taken for granted.The underdogs won two of Saturdays biggest games, though the real surprise was how.No. 13 LSU blew out No. 2 Georgia for the Tigers third victory this season against a top-10 team. This was by far LSUs most impressive performance. The Tigers might have even sparked a quarter-back controversy in Athens among Georgia fans who had to be wondering why fresh-man Justin Fields never got a chance to replace the strug-gling Jake Fromm.Most damaged by Geor-gias dud? The Southeastern Conferences chances of get-ting two teams in the College Football Playoff again. Unless maybe those two teams are LSU and Alabama. The topranked Tide visit the Tigers on Nov. 3, and looking at Ala-bamas schedule, it might be the only real challenge Nick Sabans team faces in the regular season. Tiger taleFor much of the first month, LSU seemed more of an early season novelty than a legitimate College Football Playoff contender. Not anymore.The offense is limited in the passing game, but quarterback Joe Burrow is a decent runner and generally avoids mistakes. The running game lacks the star back it has had in recent years, but the offensive line has come together to allow LSU to have the bruising offense it wants. And the defense is nasty, with preseason All-America linebacker Devin White and two of the best defensive backs in the country in cornerback Greedy Williams and safety Grant Delpit.The Tigers coach has been looked at as a bit of novelty, too, but Ed Orgeron and offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger worked over Kirby Smart and his staff in Death Valley.He knows what hes doing. People just, they hear his accent and they just think, Oh, this guy is just all rah-rah,Ž tight end Foster Moreau said about Orgeron. He made all the right deci-sions tonight.Ž PAC-12 problemsMust be nice to be worried about getting ONLY one team in the playoff. After what happened at Autzen Stadium on Saturday, the Pac-12 will to struggle to get one.No. 17 Oregon beat No. 7 Washington in overtime catching a break when the Huskies missed a short field goal to win it at the end of regulation. Good for the Ducks, bad for the conference. Washington has two losses and the setback to Auburn is not aging well. The Ducks look like the best team in the league, with talented quarterback Justin Herbert working behind a strong line, but that awful loss to Stanford last month means they are not even in the drivers seat to win the North.Making matters worse, Oregons nonconference schedule was awful and the selection committee wont care that Texas A&M bailed on a home-and-home series with the Ducks.Sure there is a path for the Ducks to get in the playoff mix, but the Pac-12 is going to need some of those near upsets to turn into actual upsets in other conferences. Big House rock If you buried No. 12 Michi-gan after the opening loss at Notre Dame, it is time to dust off the Wolverines, who thoroughly dominated Wisconsin.Even in South Bend, there were glimpses of what quar-terback Shea Patterson could do to improve Michigans offense. Patterson is a playmaker and the offensive line is improving. The defense has never been a question. It is one of the best in the country, shutting down the Badgers even without star defensive Rashan Gary (shoulder).Michigan State, coming off an oh-so-very-Michigan State-type upset of Penn State hosts Michigan next weekend and then Penn State comes to the Big House on Nov. 3. The Ohio State game is in Columbus, but consid-ering the Buckeyes issues in every aspect of the game that does not involve quarterback Dwayne Haskins, it is not a stretch to call Michigan a very viable playoff contender. Around the country At some point a bigger pro-gram, with lots of resources and a stocked trophy case, will lure Iowa State coach Matt Campbell out of Ames, but for now he is making the Cyclones a giant killer. Iowa State handed West Virginia its first loss to make it three vic-tories against top-10 teams in two seasons for the Cyclones ... While Smart gets criticized for not pulling his quarterback, Miamis Mark Richt is getting questioned for yanking NKosi Perry early in a loss at Virginia ... No. 21 Auburn lost to Tennessee but considering the way the Tigers have been playing lately that might not even be an upset. ... It is hard for Rutgers to hit a new low, but a 34-7 loss to Maryland in which the quarterbacks threw five interceptions and completed two passes qualifies. ... UCLA got Chip Kelly his first victory with the Bruins in resounding fashion against Cal, but Nebraska is now 0-6 after a gut-wrenching loss to Northwestern The other winless FBS teams: UTEP and San Jose State.Is anybody good?

[MARK HUMPHREY/ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] Tennessee running back Ty Chandler runs in a 42-yard pass for a touchdown against Auburn on Saturday in Auburn, Ala. [VASHA HUNT/ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Jenna FryerThe Associated PressTALLADEGA, Ala. „ Aric Almirola capped an absolute Stewart-Haas Racing rout at Talladega Superspeedway with an overtime victory that earned him an automatic berth into the third round of NASCARs playoffs.It also snapped a 149-race losing streak for Almirola and atoned for his oh-so-close moment in the season-open-ing Daytona 500. I just love racing at Talla-dega and I came to the track with the mindset that we were going to go race and we were going to go give them hell, and if we wrecked, we wrecked,Ž Almirola said. And if we win, we win. And we won. What a cool time to do it, too.ŽMore important, it showed that SHR arrived at Talladega prepared to work as a four-car team and ensure one of its drivers made it to victory lane.The SHR Fords were untouchable all weekend. They swept qualifying, won every stage of Sundays race and used teamwork to pull away from the field. As the laps wound down, Kurt Busch led his three teammates in a straight line and pulled the train away from the pack, which couldnt organize itself behind the SHR group to mount any sort of challenge.But the dynamics changed when Alex Bowman spun with three laps remaining to bring out an ill-timed caution.Now the race was going to overtime, and the SHR cars didnt have enough gas for the extra laps.First Buschs fuel light began to flicker. Then Kevin Harvick got the same warn-ing. As the field roared to the green flag, Harvick forfeited a shot at victory by pulling off the track to get enough gas to make it to the finish.Busch stayed out as the leader with Almirola and Clint Bowyer looking for a slot to slip past him for the victory. Then Busch ran out of gas headed to the check-ered flag and Almirola zipped by for his first victory of the season, first since joining SHR this year as the replace-ment for Danica Patrick, and first since the rain-shortened Daytona race in July 2014. It was the second Cup victory of his career.Almirola was also leading on the final lap in overtime of the season-opening Daytona 500 until he was wrecked by winner Austin Dillon.Almirola thought he had last weeks race at Dover won until a caution triggered by teammate Bowyer ruined his shot at the victory. A week later, he got his checkered flag and his stamp into the round of eight into the playoffs.Four or five times this year I feel like weve had a shot to win and havent been able to seal the deal,Ž Almirola said.Bowyer finished second, followed by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. in a Ford from Roush Fenway Racing.Busch faded to 14th and Harvick wound up 28th „ a disappointing end because SHR was poised for a 1-2-3-4 finish before the race went to overtime. But the team understood how dominant it had been all day and fortunate it was to leave Talladega with one driver locked into the next round of the playoffs and the other three still in contention.The playoff field will be trimmed from 12 drivers to eight after next weeks race at Kansas Speedway.Mine sputtered there on the fuel pressure and it dropped down in the red and they did the right thing of coming in and pitting and not taking a chance,Ž Harvick said. You just need to put yourself in a position to where youre good for next week, just glad that one of our cars won, and happy for Aric.Ž UP NEXT The elimination race of the second round of the playoffs, at Kansas Speedway, where Kevin Harvick won in May and Martin Truex Jr. won last October.

Box 2949, Fort Walton Beach, FL 32549 Email: letters@nwfdailynews.com By Robert Gasperson IIIGuest columnistI was in Los Angeles on Oct. 10 when Hurricane Michael crashed into Panama City. My parents and grandparents were hunkered down together in my childhood home in Lynn Haven, hiding behind boarded windows from the wind and rain. They had no electricity, no way to communicate with the outside world except via text message. I was watching the Weather Channel and CNN, flipping back and forth on commercial breaks, texting them updates on the storms path. The western eye-wall passed directly over them. At one point, my father and grandfather had to brace their bodies against a set of French doors to prevent them from collapsing inward. When the storm passed, I received a short phone call. Were all okay, the house is okay.Ž The line went dead. The time was 5 p.m. Central. I would not hear from them again for over 24 hours. I made contact with a friend who had evacuated to Alabama. He, his girlfriend, and her son were safe, and were desperately trying to find a way back into Bay County. They were carrying baby formula and food for children with severe allergies, and they were racing up and down the backroads north of Panama City, looking for a break in the FEMA perimeter around the evacuation zone. Another friend, who had not evacuated, emerged from his home in Bayou George once the storm had passed and began making his way around his neighborhood, surveying damage. He eventually decided to drive north up Highway 231 in search of cell phone reception. He accidentally ventured beyond the perimeter, and has been unable to return to his mother, brother, and animals. While this was happening, before I had heard from my parents, President Donald Trump was seated in the Oval Office across from Kanye West. He smiled politely and nodded his head as West described his desire to redesign Air Force One, his supposed 98th percentile IQ, and the superhuman energy he feels when wearing a MAGA hat. This meeting did not serve any practical purpose. Although the topics broached included education, trade, the 13th Amendment, and the prison system, Kanye touched lightly on them, as if only to show that he is aware they exist. They did not discuss Hurricane Michael. The real purpose of the meeting was to stroke both mens egos. For Kanye, it was a chance to show off his geniusŽ to the leader of the free world, and for the president, a chance to receive praise from the one type of person he cares most deeply about: a celebrity. No wonder there were so many cameras. The President won well over two-thirds of the vote in Bay County in 2016. His campaign rally in Panama City Beach attracted thousands from the surrounding areas. When my people were wearing red hats and waving flags emblazoned with his name, he was their man. Now, when they are trying to piece together the remains of their town, he is uninterested. The president has betrayed my people, and I will never forgive him.Not pleased with the president If Sen. Ben Sasse is right „ he has not recently been wrong about anything important „ the nations most-discussed political problem is entangled with the least-understood public health problem. The political problem is furious partisanship. The public health problem is loneliness. Sasses new book argues that Americans are richer, more informed and connectedŽ than ever „ and unhappier, more isolated and less fulfilled. In Them: Why We Hate Each Other „ and How to Heal,Ž Sasses subject is the evaporation of social capitalŽ „ the satisfactions of work and community. This reflects a perverse phenomenon: What has come to count as connectedness is displacing the real thing. And matters might quickly become dramatically worse. Loneliness in epidemic proportionsŽ is producing a loneliness literatureŽ of sociological and medical findings about the effect of loneliness on individuals brains and bodies, and on communities. Sasse says there is a growing consensusŽ that loneliness „ not obesity, cancer or heart disease „ is the nations number one health crisis.Ž Persistent lonelinessŽ reduces average longevity more than twice as much as does heavy drinking and more than three times as much as obesity, which often is a consequence of loneliness. Research demonstrates that loneliness is as physically dangerous as smoking 15 cigarettes a day and contributes to cognitive decline, including more rapid advance of Alzheimers disease. Sasse says, Were literally dying of despair,Ž of the failure to fill the hole millions of Americans feel in their lives.Ž Symptoms large and small are everywhere. Time was, Sasse notes, Americans stocked their imaginations with the same thingsŽ: In the 1950s, frequently 70 percent of television sets in use tuned in to I Love Lucy.Ž Today, when 93 percent of Americans have access to more than 500 channels, the most-watched cable news program, HannityŽ has about 1 percent of the U.S. population. In the last quarter of the 20th century, the average number of times Americans entertained at home declined almost 50 percent. Americans are hyperconnected but disconnected, with fewer nonvirtual friends than at any point in decades.Ž With the median American checking (according to a Pew survey) a smartphone every 4.3 minutes, and with nearly 40 percent of those 18 to 29 online almost every waking minute, we are addicted to distractionŽ and parched for genuine community.Ž Social media, those tendrils of resentmentŽ that Sasse calls accelerants for political anger, create a nuance-free outrage loopŽ for professional ragepeddlers.Ž And for people for whom enemies have the psychic value of giving life coherence. Work, which Sasse calls arguably the most fundamental anchor of human identity,Ž is at the beginning of a staggering level of cultural disruptionŽ swifter and more radical than even Americas transformation from a rural and agricultural to an urban and industrial nation. At that time, one response to social disruption was alcoholism, which begat Prohibition. Today, one reason the average American life span has declined for three consecutive years is that many more are dying of drug overdoses „ one of the diseases of despairŽ „ annually than died during the entire Vietnam War. People need to be needed,Ž but McKinsey & Co. analysts calculate that, globally, 50 percent of paid activities „ jobs „ could be automated by currently demonstrated technologies. Americas largest job category is driverŽ and, with self-driving vehicles coming, two-thirds of such jobs could disappear in a decade. This future of accelerating flux exhilarates the educated and socially nimble. It frightens those who, their work identities erased and their communities atomized, are tempted not by what Sasse calls healthy local tribesŽ but by political tribalism of grievances, or by chemical oblivion, or both. In todays bifurcated nation, 2016 was the 10th consecutive year when 40 percent of American children were born outside of marriage, America has two almost entirely different cultures,Ž exemplified by this: Under 10 percent of births to collegeeducated women are outside of marriage compared to almost 70 percent of births to women with high school diplomas or less. Repairing Americas physical infrastructure, although expensive, is conceptually simple, involving steel and concrete. The crumbling of Americas social infrastructure presents a daunting challenge: We do not know how to develop what Sasse wants, new habits of mind and heart ... new practices of neighborliness.Ž We do know that more government, which means more saturation of society with politics, is not a sufficient answer. Sasse, a fifth-generation Nebraskan who dedicates his book to the Kiwanis and Rotary clubs and other little platoons of Fremont, Nebraska (population 26,000), wants to rekindle the hometown-gym-on-a-Fridaynight feeling.Ž But Americans cant go home again to Fremont. George Wills email address is georgewill@washpost.com.How to heal our epidemic of loneliness? Donald Trump may be remembered as the most honest president in modern American history. Dont get me wrong, Trump lies all the time. He said that he enacted the biggest tax cuts and reforms in American historyŽ (actually they are the eighth largest) and that our economy is the strongest its ever been in the history of our countryŽ (which may one day be true, but not yet). In part, its a New York thing „ everything is the biggest and the best. But when it comes to the real barometer of presidential truthfulness „ keeping his promises „ Trump is a paragon of honesty. For better or worse, since taking office Trump has done exactly what he promised he would do. Trump kept his promise to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, something his three immediate predecessors also promised yet failed to do. He promised to crush and destroy ISIS,Ž and two years later he is on the verge of eliminating the Islamic States physical caliphate. He promised to impose a travel ban on countries that he saw as posing a terrorist threat, and after several false starts the final version of his ban was upheld by the Supreme Court. He promised to punish Syria if it used chemical weapons on its people, and, unlike his immediate predecessor, he followed through „ not once but twice. Trump pledged to nominate Supreme Court justices in the mold of Justice [Antonin] Scalia,Ž and now Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh sit on the high court. Trump also pledged to fill the federal appellate courts with young, conservative judges, and so far the Senate has confirmed 29 „ more than any recent president at this point in his administration. Trump vowed to pass historic tax reforms, and signed the first major overhaul of the tax code in three decades. He vowed an unprecedented regulatory rollback, with a strict policy to eliminate two existing regulations for every new regulation. In his first year, he achieved $8.1 billion in lifetime regulatory savings and is on track to achieve an additional $9.8 billion this year. During the campaign, he told African American voters, What do you have to lose? ... I will straighten it out. Ill bring jobs back. Well bring spirit back.Ž On his watch, African American unemployment reached the lowest level ever recorded, and his tax reform included a little-noticed provision creating Opportunity ZonesŽ to try to revitalize struggling towns and inner-city communities. Trump promised to cancel President Barack Obamas Clean Power Plan, withdraw from the Paris climate accord, approve the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, and open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to exploration. He fulfilled all of those pledges. On trade, he kept his promise to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and impose tariffs on steel and aluminum. He also committed to renegotiating NAFTA and the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement „ and recently signed new deals with Mexico, Canada and South Korea. He committed to imposing tariffs on China to force it to open its markets and stop its theft of intellectual property „ and is following through on that pledge. Whatever one thinks of Trumps trade policies, he is doing exactly what he said. The president pledged historic increases in defense spending, and delivered. He pledged to bring back manufacturing jobs, and manufacturing jobs are growing at the fastest pace in more than two decades. He pledged to sign Right to TryŽ legislation to give dying Americans access to experimental treatments, and did. He pledged to take on the opioid epidemic, and will soon sign a sweeping bipartisan opioids package into law. Where Trump has failed to keep promises, such as building the wall or repealing Obamacare, it has not been for a lack of trying. Only in a few rare instances has he backtracked on a campaign pledge „ such as when he admitted that he was wrong to promise a complete withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan and reversed course. Im glad he did. But whether one agrees or disagrees is not the point. When Trump says he will do something, you can take it to the bank. Yes, he takes liberties with the truth. But unlike his predecessor, he did not pass his signature legislative achievement on the basis of a lie (If you like your health care plan, you can keep itŽ) „ which is clearly worse than falsely bragging that your tax cut is the biggest ever. The fact is, in his first two years, Trump has compiled a remarkable record of presidential promise-keeping. Hed probably say its the best in history „ which may or may not end up being true. Its too soon to tell. Follow Marc A.

** The News Herald | Monday, October 15, 2018 B7DEAR ABBY: My husband, John,Ž recently returned from his fourth Middle East tour after having been gone for a year. As soon as he got back, his mother invited him and his two sisters on a vacation cruise for a week. He said yes, and theyll be leaving in a couple of weeks. The downside is „ no spouses allowed. John and I are in our mid40s. We have been married 25 years. I feel slighted, left out and, frankly, disrespected. Im not sure how to bring this up to him or to his mom. I dont want to cause my husband, who is currently going through a difficult reintegration process, any stress. And I dont want to cause drama with his mother, who will regard my speaking up as an offense to her gesture for her children. Please help. Do I just keep my hurting mouth shut? „ HURTING IN THE MIDWESTDEAR HURTING: Because your husband is having a difficult time reintegrating, I do think you should keep your mouth closed. The reason you and the other spouses werent invited may have been the cost involved. If it wasnt, then Mama may have wanted her broodŽ around her and no one else. You say you and your husband have been married 25 years. That would make you a military wife. By definition, military wives are resilient and independent. If you feel you will be at loose ends while your husband is with his mother and siblings, I suggest you and the other excluded spousesŽ plan some activities together to pass the time. If you all like each other, you could have a ball. Later, when the time is right, you and your husband could plan a private getaway just for the two of you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) „ The concept of closureŽ is a construct. Most things run on a continuum. So while there is no real ending, there also must be an ending, or life becomes too overwhelming to take in. The ritual of “ nalization will be key today. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) „ Today is another chance at un“ nished business. The thing you dont want to do will be the thing to do “ rst. Get it out of the way. Nothing will be harder than beginning. GEMINI (May 21-June 21) „ Socializing will be tricky. You dont want to leave anyone out, but the bigger the group gets the more complicated and dif“ cult the event becomes. How far to take your sense of social responsibility, that is the question. CANCER (June 22-July 22) „ Even if a person is suggesting something that is in your best interest, if their approach is off, you will resist. Youre not into being controlled. Youre the authority of you, now more than ever. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) „ If a belief is causing you stress, remember that you have many, many choices about what to believe. Also, there are ways to frame the truth to make it more appealing. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) „ It will be appropriate and wise to extend a little blind faith. Even if the other person doesnt exactly deserve the trust, you might be surprised by how people rise to the occasion, and thats a nice kind of surprise to get. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) „ To say that people dont always use logic to make decisions is to understate things severely. People (SET ITAL)will(END ITAL) use logic to justify their very illogical choices though! SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) „ What used to seem like a big deal just isnt anymore. Youve grown bigger than the circumstances and therefore youre now more able to give balanced attention to different parts of your life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) „ You dont want to upset the apple cart. Its not because youre afraid. Youre receptive to change, though only if you can see the purpose. Strategy takes self-control. Youve plenty of that today. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) „ Youre the cheerleader, the encouraging friend, and the con“ dence and morale booster of your group. This kind of support will be invaluable and germane to todays best outcomes. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) „ People can learn new skills all day every day and yet still be in stuck in the same work and life patterns if they dont also know how to implement the learning. A coach will help. Get one or be one. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) „ Youre not waiting around for someone to tell you what to do. Youll see the big picture better than most will. The next move will seem rather obvious, though dont be surprised if you have to politely point it out.
