That will present chal-lenges for some teachers who are displaced by the storm and who are desperate for flexibil-ity from the district.Our concern is, we have teachers who are living out of the trunks of their cars,Ž said Alexis Underwood, president of Association of Bay County Educators. Underwood said the flexibility the district is granting to principals is com-forting but she still is looking for solutions for military spouses and teachers still without electricity.District officials said they must get schools going again to help employees of businesses return to work. Superintendent Bill Husfelt will meet with teachers today to discuss how the district can continue to support them.We have got to find a happy medium,Ž said Husfelt. If they need to take leave, they can take leave.ŽAnother issue addressed to facilitate reopening the schools included finding rooms to put students in.Schools priority: Reopen early The Bay County Jail is shown Monday after suffering damage during Hurricane Michael.

Size 3.This particular small, well-worn section of grass at an affordable housing complex was a showcase of childhood and chaos: Silver ballet-style flats, chocolate brown thick-padded boots, a Western set in pink and brown and a look-a-like pair of Buster Browns.The dropped shoes were not things isolated here. Throughout the grounds of Macedonia Garden Apart-ments, clothes for all shapes and ages rose from the ground in discarded heaps. A childrens bicycle and a blue stuffed monkey with a shock of bright orange hair would under normal circumstances have been up for grabs.But this is anything but normal. There is a crisis in Panama City.

[JOSHUA BOUCHER/THE NEWS HERALD] By Katie Landeck522-5114 | @PCNHKatieL klandeck@pcnh.comPANAMA CITY „ In the hallway, a broken pipe dripped into a yellow mop bucket „ one of the last reminders of the toll Hurricane Michael had taken on the Bay County Jail.Well fix that next week,Ž said Maj. Rick Anglin, who runs the jail. Its not a priority.ŽThe jail „ with its reinforced concrete walls, and backup supplies of water and power „ was one of the safest places to shelter from Michaels 155 mph winds with many staff bringing their families there for safety, but even it didnt come through unscathed.Industrial air conditioning units were knocked off the roof during the storm, scraping the rubber seal that keeps water out and open-ing the duct work to the torrents of rain. The com-bination caused some water to leak into the building, soaking and collapsing the tiles in some office ceilings. And the jail wasnt spared from the countywide issues of downed trees in the nearby woods, collapsed buildings, flipped trailers, loss of power, loss of communication and loss of county water, Anglin said. But the jail was better equipped to deal with those issues than most, with recently purchased chainsaws at the ready to cut their way out, generators on hand to power the essential systems, and a well to supply water. Still, it wasnt perfect.There was water in the jail, but not with enough pressure to flush toilets, meaning staff members „ who were essentially living at the jail following the storm, Anglin said „ had to provide the inmates trash barrels of water with buck-ets to flush toilets. Drinking water also was being provided through 5-gallon coolers.Bay jail almost back to normal after MichaelDiversions....................B5 Local & State.............B1-8 Nation & World............A7 Sports......................C1-4 TV listings...................A8 Viewpoints...................A6 BAY GETTING 5 MEGA VOTING SITES INSIDE | A4 See HOUSING, A2 See JAIL, A2 See SCHOOLS, A2

The registration number is key to getting assistance.The main thing we need to do is make sure everyone has registered with us,Ž Bafalis said. We dont want people to wait to register.ŽFEMA is responsible for coordinating all federal disaster response, and works to support local and state agencies in recovery efforts, she said. The agency thus far has handed out more than $31 million in relief funds.It cant duplicate what insurance companies can do to mitigate damage done by a storm, put does provide assistance for what insurance doesnt cover, she said. FEMA can assist with personal property losses, the under insured, renters and homeowners. It partners with nonprofits and other federal govern-ment agencies such as the Small Business Adminis-tration to bolster what aid is provided.The agency has begun the process of opening disaster relief centers in the 12 counties most severely affected by Michael. These centers, when up and running, will provide a location for disaster victims to go and work face to face with a FEMA inspector.FEMA disaster assis-tance providers are going door to door, but so are scammers pretending to work for the federal gov-ernment, Bafalis said. All FEMA workers wear shirts identifying the agency and carry identi-fication cards.A person registered with FEMA should ask anyone identifying themselves as a FEMA inspector to present your registration number,Ž Bafalis said.If they cant provide that, you know its not a FEMA inspector,Ž she said.FEMA inspectors never ask for money and there are no FEMA-hired con-tractors, she said.A contact number for FEMA is 1-800-6213362. After registering, individuals can expect a return call and a visit from an inspector, who will be able to provide the registration number.How to sign up for FEMA assistance Where and when they start over is anyones guess. Affordable housing is hard to find in just about every city in Amer-ica. Panama City and its surrounding communi-ties are no exception.Hurricane Michael bar-reled through and made it worse, much worse.The fierce winds left the areas poor and disenfranchised in even worse shape than before the Oct. 10 storm. Residents at numerous public and subsidized housing complexes across the city have been told to leave their uninhabitable units „ some of which people spent years on waiting lists trying to nail down.Half of the Panama City Housing Authoritys 450 apartment homes will be condemned, said Teri Henry, the authoritys executive director. The agency also issued Section-8 vouchers for 415 private units and 60 vouchers for veterans housing. At this point, Henry still has no idea how many more of the areas poor from that pool of 475 voucher hold-ers will lose their homes because they are deemed unsafe.Panama City is under-going a crisis, said Henry.I do think there are a lot of people who care, but there is no housing here. It just doesnt exist. There was a shortage before the storm.ŽThe waiting list for housing or vouchers closed well before Hur-ricane Michael.In August it opened for a two-week period of time, according to the authoritys website. Before that, applications to be on the waiting list were accepted for two-week periods in all of 2014 and 2016.We dont have no place to live,Ž said Carmen Mendez, a four-year resident of Macedonia Garden Apartments, which is not run by the Panama City Housing Author-ity, though is considered affordable housing.Mendez and others were told Oct. 20 they had three days to get out. On the eve of the evic-tion, residents estimated about 50 percent of the complexs units still were occupied.Residents at the Mas-salina Apartments which is run by the Panama City Housing Authority were notified they must start looking for other housing.Rebecca Turner said she has received two notices ordering her to vacate in three days. Turner has three children, 11, 9 and four. All are considered to have some learning or mental disability.For the past 20 months, Turner has paid $175 in rent. Shes also respon-sible for the utilities.Before the storm her children had plenty of food, clothing, toys and shelter. Now, the family has two letters telling them to leave their home and little clothing. Turner, who has her own cleaning business, said her car was in the shop when the storm hit. It was destroyed, she said, so sleeping in the family car is now off the table.The family stayed in its public housing unit as Michael made landfall. As the storm was overhead, her 9-year-old daughter Nakyah Williams kept asking, Mommy are we going to die?ŽAs the winds continued to pull away at the structure, she told her mom, We are going to die. Mommy why did you allow this?ŽNow the little girl goes up to strangers and asks if there is a rental car the family can have so they can leave.A twin bed was brought downstairs and placed up against the sectional sofa. The family of four sleeps on what is now a giant bed.Turner sits on the couch/bed and stares off.I cant even plan for tomorrow. I wake up and it is day-by-day.ŽOn Monday, she said she knew of no one who had been given any vouchers for temporary housing and hotels in far-flung places.The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is the primary resource for offering vouchers and help not the citys housing authority, according to a notice on the housing authoritys website.The notice says the agency is working with HUD to find units that are available in the Southeast: Please remember, those units will be offered to the elderly and disabled as a priority.Ž The notice said that every resident in two low-income communities, the Massalina Apartments and Fletcher Black, are required to leave.Katie Greenwood, 85, still is waiting to be told in person to leave her Mas-salina apartment. The gas to her apartment has been cut. She has lived in the low-income community for 10 years after living in a FEMA trailer in Georgia. She knows how to start over, but the thought of it at the age of 85 hurts her.It breaks my heart to see this,Ž she said. ŽAt 85, Im not thinking too far ahead about the idea of starting over.ŽThe News-Herald found one person at a condemned complex, the Macedonia Garden Apartments, who has been offered vouchers for a hotel. The problem is that the hotel is about a three-hour drive from here, said Carmen Mendez. Mendez works in Panama City. The vouchers wont do her any good, she said. So for now, she is staying put.Rosa Perez opens the door to her Macedonia apartment. The damage is jarring. The drywall has slipped from the studs. Insulation and drywall blanket the wet couch in the family room. She can see outside through a wall where there was never a window.Perez knows the apartment is no place for her teenage children to live. They are still at the complex, not in her apartment, because just like almost everyone there, she has nowhere to go.This dire situation, might ultimately help „ or force „ Perez to get off government assistance.Hurricane Michael is going to force me to be independent and not rely on the government,Ž she said.Because Perez left her unit, Jackie Workman is staying in what was Per-ezs bedroom.Its freezing cold,Ž she said. Workman raised her hands to her face as she cried, revealing the track marks where she shoots heroin into her knuckles. Im overwhelmed.ŽWorkman was evicted from her own unit 10 months ago.Because she wasnt on a lease, she likely wont qualify for any temporary housing help from FEMA. She said when the buildings are demolished, she wont have shelter unless she turns herself in. Workman said there is likely a warrant for her arrest because she failed to meet the strict condi-tions when she was sent to drug rehab in lieu of prison.Workman knows prison is an option, a place where she can be fed and given shelter for 18 months if she turns herself in.Im at the point I dont care now,Ž she says. If they get me, they get me. I just dont know what else to do.Ž HOUSINGFrom Page A1There also was damage to the gas lines, which made it impossible to cook hot meals immediately after the storm.Anglin said inmates in one of the highsecurity units took issue with the food sit-uation and caused what he classified as a dis-turbanceŽ in the days after the storm, ripping televisions off the wall and damaging property when they were served one more cold waffle and sausageŽ than they could stand. Chemical agents were used to stop the destruction, and the dorm has been quiet since the instigators were removed, Anglin said. Hot food „ which already was in the works „ was restored to the entire jail later that day.The two systems that have proved the most difficult to fix after the storm are air conditioning and communication.Sunday was the first day visitation „ which takes place via com-puter connection within the jail „ was restored, giving people a chance to see their loved ones for the first time after the hurricane. The phone systems have not been restored.While the systems were down, the staff was relaying short mes-sages to inmates about the status of their loved ones. Inmate Joshua Foster, who helped with the water runs after the storm, said jail staff told him that he lost his home, but that his family was safe.Air conditioning also continued to be a prob-lem Sunday, but Anglin ordered accommodations that normally wouldnt be allowed, such as fans with exten-sion cords and letting the inmates wear just their undershirts.Weve made a lot of provisions we would never allow under normal circumstances,Ž Anglin said.The jail housed about 1,150 inmates during the storm and now is down to 900. Medical needs were met throughout the storm, Anglin said. JAILFrom Page A1 Children play basketball at Massalina Garden Apartments on Monday. Wait lists were so long to become a resident at Massalina that the housing authority stopped accepting new applicants before Hurricane Michael, says resident Rebecca Turner. [PHOTOS BY JOSHUA BOUCHER/THE NEWS HERALD] District officials approved spending $4.5 million on 120 modular classrooms under 12-month leases. They will be used for the influx of students at schools used for split schedules. The split schedules tenta-tively will run one school from 7 a.m. to noon, then two schools from noon to 5.The split sessions will be temporary until the portables are in place. Students will return to their regular campuses as soon as possible, hope-fully before Christmas, officials said.Initially, Everitt Middle School students will be at Rutherford High, Merritt Brown Middle School students will be at Mosley High, and Bay High students will be at Jinks Middle School. C.C. Washington and Rosenwald are combining.Every student in the district will be provided two free meals, whether it be breakfast and lunch or lunch and dinner (depending on session) for free until January.Discussing school updates, officials said Springfield and Patterson received extensive damage and might not open this year but will be repaired and reopened. Students will be relocated to other schools in the district. There are schools with space. SCHOOLSFrom Page A1

** The News Herald | Wednesday, October 24, 2018 A3By Ryan McKinnonGatehouse Media FloridaMEXICO BEACH „ Standing on the back porch of a damaged Mexico Beach home, Brandon Smith, 34, and Fred Stevenson, 39, surveyed the damage Hurricane Michael had inflicted.The two had a view previously reserved for governors and public officials surveying storm damage from a helicopter, but they didnt leave the ground. Stevenson navigated an unmanned aircraft „ commonly referred to as a drone „ along the Gulf of Mexico coastline while Smith watched the images of the wind-and-water decimated community on a high definition monitor.Stevenson normally uses the drone to capture pic-tures of homes for sale for real estate agents, and the sweeping view of crushed houses and debris piles were a departure from his normal subject matter.Honestly it is devastat-ing. You see hard-earned money gone,Ž he said. Its amazing how much damage wind can do.ŽStevenson is one of about 25 students in Gulf Coast State Colleges Unmanned Vehicle Systems Operation program, and Smith works for the college in technology. The associate of science degree program has worked closely with county emergency officials during the relief and recovery efforts „ assess-ing damage, finding entry points for emergency crews and identifying the hardest-hit areas.On Monday, Smith, Stevenson and unmanned vehicle student Dan Schroeder, 56, used the drone to map out a distri-bution point near Mexico Beach where FEMA and the National Guard will partner to distribute food and supplies.The men launched a drone from a small orange launch pad in the midst of a broad field. It rose 190 feet in the air, and at 12 miles per hour, made runs back and forth over the site, snapping a picture every few seconds. The pictures will be layered on top of one another, creat-ing a three-dimensional image with drastically more clarity and precision than a Google Earth satellite photograph.Logistics officials at the Bay County Emergency Operations Center will use the image to know how many trucks can fit in the distribution point and how to best utilize the space.This type of planning is likely to reduce the need to fix things once all the assets are in place,Ž said FEMA spokesman Dave Passey.After imagingŽ the distribution point, the men drove to Mexico Beach, where they launched the drones and continued to gather videos and still shots of the destroyed community.Schroeder, a retired fire-fighter, joined Gulf Coasts program after retiring because he still wanted to help people.If you are a firefighter or a police officer, its just something thats in you. You cant stop that,Ž he said. For me, I just want to be part of solutions.ŽThe images he helped capture on Monday will contribute to the EOCs planning of relief and recovery efforts. With roads clogged with traffic, driving from the EOC to the most impacted areas can eat up hours of offi-cials time. The unmanned aircraft team can provide timely updates on the recovery efforts and helps officials direct efforts.Tony Lopez-Baquero, the unmanned aero-system section chief for the Bay County Emergency Operations Center, flew drones in Washington County for the first four days after the storm, helping direct officials to the areas with the heaviest damage.You can pinpoint where teams need to go quicker,Ž Lopez-Baquero said.Having grown up in the Caribbean, LopezBaquero thought he was used to storm damage, but seeing it from the sky was a new experience.For most of these guys and myself its the first time weve seen the hurricane damage, early on from the air,Ž he said. It changes your perspective.ŽFor hurricane recovery, drones o er new perspectiveFred Stevenson, 39, launches his drone from a home in Mexico Beach. Stevenson and other students in Gulf Coast State Colleges Unmanned Vehicle Systems Operation program have been using the drones to help disaster relief of“ cials coordinate relief efforts.

** A4 Wednesday, October 24, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Jim Thompson315-4445 | @Jimtnwfdn jthompson@nwfdailynews.comTYNDALL AFB„ This time of year, its not uncommon to see Canadian license plates in condominium parking lots along the Emerald Coast, as people seek refuge from their cold winter. This year, though, 31 Cana-dian families lodging in Destin have a different story. The families, all part of the Cana-dian military, were displaced from Tyndall Air Force Base as Hurricane Michael leveled the base.Originally evacuated to Mis-sissippi, the Canadian airmen were moved to Destin to be closer to the gutted base as they begin putting their lives back together. Late last week, their deputy commander, Royal Canadian Air Force Lt. Gen. Christopher Coates, met with them to make them aware of available support services and hear their concerns.Among the major concerns of the Canadian airmen was schooling for their children, Coates said. Otherwise, though, the morale was incredible,Ž Coates said.It was amazing they were so focused and keen to get back to work,Ž Coates said.The airmen are the Canadian Element of the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). Their mission in the joint effort with the U.S. includes monitoring air traf-fic over the continental United States, controlling U.S. fighter jet responses to any threats, and watching over air travel of the U.S. president.As the hurricane approached, Tyndalls Canadian airmen moved their NORAD mission to Langley Air Force Base in Vir-ginia. In the days since, theyve been rotating personnel into and out of Langley so airmen can return to Destin regularly to handle insurance and other issues.Coates said just one of the 31 Canadian airmen and families lived in base housing, much of which was seriously damaged by the hurricane. But other airmen and families lived in communities that also were hit hard.Those families have experienced the full rangeŽ of damage to their homes, according to Coates, with some airmen hopeful of returning to live in their residences while others have been less fortunate.The U.S. and Canadian mili-tary have agreements under which the Canadian airmen can get medical and other assistance through the Ameri-can military, but much of the assistance available will come from the Canadian military, Coates explained. A Canadian team is assessing the needs of the displaced airmen.Were taking a familyby-family approach,Ž Coates explained.As far as the future of the Canadian Element of NORAD at Tyndall AFB is concerned, Coates doesnt yet have much definitive information.Ive heard the intent is for us to return to Tyndall,Ž he said.Canadian military families staying in DestinThe airmen were displaced from Tyndall AFB by Hurricane MichaelBy Genevieve Smithgsmith@pcnh.com | @ PCNHGenevievePANAMA CITY „ Pet owners who werent able to find their animals after Hur-ricane Michael ravaged Bay County can take comfort in the Humane Society of Bay Countys around-the-clock effort to reunite families with their pets.The shelter has become a hub for pets lost during the storm, with residents able to bring in animals they find, have them housed and entered into a database of lost animals. The shelter currently has 150 animals.Lauryn Gill, shelter manager, said the staff has received training in the field in Bay and Gulf County from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and in-house from the State Animal Response Coalition, which is part of the Florida Department of Emergency Management, USDA Small Animal Division. The Humane Society also received an influx of volunteers.We are doing very well in the situation that we have,Ž Gill said. We are working on this as a team, and thats why it is going well so far.ŽThe facility is providing multiple services, including intake of surrendered, rescued or found animals; medical examinations by volunteer veterinar-ians; vaccinations; food and water. The staff also is taking lost animal reports, and pro-viding online support for families to post photos of lost and found pets.According to Andy Bass of the State Animal Response Coalition, the volunteers are staying at a little encampment on the property and sleeping in trucks and trail-ers, as to not interfere with displaced local residents by taking up hotel rooms. Vol-unteers search the shelter for matches from submitted pet photos every night in an attempt to reunite families.Thats the goal. First, its to reunite them with their family, and if that cant happen, to find them a new forever home,Ž said Bass. Were not going to ship a potentially owned animal out of the county. Thats the whole reason we do this, is to keep animals close because their families are here.ŽThe amount of time the organizations will remain in Bay County is dependent on the amount of animals. The state mandates that found animals be held for 30 days to allow the owners to collect. After 30 days, the animals become adoptable to the public.Even before the storm struck, the staff was hard at work preparing the shel-ter by moving adoptable animals to partnering facilities that would be safe during and after the storm.Escambia County officers actually came in and they transferred our animals out to a safer environment where they had running water, food, electricity, things like that,Ž said Gill.Removing animals from a shelter pre-disaster is a typical practice to ensure there is room for a potential influx of displaced local ani-mals, particularly ones that were separated from their families. The shelter is taking in all animals, regardless of medi-cal conditions or behavioral problems.The best way to find a missing animal or to report found pets is by posting pictures on the Humane Societys lost and found page or go to the facility and file a report.Every Monday, Wednes-day and Friday, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Humane Soci-ety will be distributing cat and dog food and supplies at the John Lee Pre-Owned Nissan car dealership on 15th Street.The shelter will begin making adoptable animals available this week.You can support the effort by donating dog food, cat food, and new or used linens and towels or send-ing a monetary donation at AdoptMe.org.Fur-ever friendsBy Zack McDonaldThe News HeraldPANAMA CITY „ After weathering Hurricane Michael inside the supervisor of elections office in order to protect voting equipment, Mark Andersen said everything in Bay County is ready for the polls to open in the coming days.In many counties across Florida, voters already have turned out in large numbers to cast their ballots in key elections for local, state and federal seats. This midterm election will decide several state amendments and „ among several other positions „ who will hold the governors mansion and a U.S. Senate seat. While many counties in the Panhandle are rebuilding from the wrath of Hurricane Michael, though, Andersen said voting is a chance to return to normalcy and dem-onstrate the resiliency of the community."Bay County voters are tough, they're resilient, they're patriotic and they'll show up," Andersen said. "I know this is a particularly difficult time. But if there's one thing this hurricane can't take away, it is your civic duty."Andersen said his office, as well as many other voting sites were damaged in Hurricane Michael. As the storm bore down on Bay County, the roof of the Bay County govern-ment building peeled away and water began to flow into the supervisor of elections office. However, Andersen and his staff were able to salvage voting equipment, such as the utmost valuable servers. Now, those will be in place at five "mega voting sites" begin-ning Saturday. Any Bay County voter can arrive at any of the voting sites and cast a ballot. They will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day all the way through Election Day on Nov. 6."I can't stress enough that voting will take place all the way through Election Day," Ander-sen said. "When you can vote, go vote. We don't want people to all show up at once on Elec-tion Day. That would create great lines."Andersen said mail-in ballots also are ready for the midterms. As a test, he sent one to himself immediately after the storm passed and it arrived Monday via mail. Andersen said his office already has begun to receive mail-in ballots.Any out-of-town voter can call the supervisor of elections office at 850-248-8602 to receive a mail-in ballot.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, October 24, 2018 A5By Jennifer KayThe Associated PressMIAMI „ Hurricane Michael toppled beehives and stripped flowering plants across Floridas Panhandle, threatening tupelo honey production in a tiny Gulf County community that is the primary source of the sweet delicacy.Tanker trucks of corn syrup and tens of thousands of pounds of synthetic pollen are being rushed to beekeepers from the Gulf of Mexico to the Georgia state line to feed surviving bee colonies that also pollinate crops such as watermel-ons, cantaloupes and blueberries.Just feeding my bees is the biggest concern,Ž said Gary Adkison, a Wewahitchka beekeeper. Theres no nectar.ŽAdkison, who named his Blue-Eyed Girl Honey for his granddaughter, lost about 50 of his 150 hives to the storm, each containing 30,000 to 40,000 bees. Unlike other beekeepers who move their colonies to pollinate crops, Adkison keeps his hives local year-round.To be honest, I didnt expect this much damage,Ž he said.About 500 beekeepers are registered in Floridas Panhandle, with more than 1.2 billion bees in their colonies. They range from hobbyists to mom-and-pop businesses to large com-mercial operations.Although Florida also produces honey from orange blossoms, gallber-ries and wildflowers, the honey from white tupelo gum trees ranks highest in price and flavor.The trees grow in remote swamps in north-western Florida and southern Georgia, but are most profuse along the Apalachicola River in Gulf County. The heart of tupelo honey production is Wewahitchka, a onestoplight town about 15 miles inland from where Michael made landfall Oct. 10 with 155 mph winds.Beekeepers and business owners like Bertonneau, whose oper-ations shut down without electricity or internet access after Michael, are anxious to find out what kind of spring harvest they should expect.The blossoms are so fragile, theyre like little snowballs,Ž Bertonneau said. A heavy wind or rain will knock them off the tree.ŽMichaels toll on tupelos is as yet unclear because the trees are difficult to reach except by barge and consider-able debris remains to be cleared.David Westervelt, a state apiary inspection supervisor, said damaged trees might take two or three years to start blooming again.Adkison said all he could do was focus on feeding his surviving bees.We are small-time,Ž he said. If we have a bad year, Ill just have to take care of my bees and wait until the next year.ŽHurricane Michael could sour Floridas tupelo honey harvest

More young veterans are taking their lives, according to the Veterans Administration (VA), despite new efforts to stem those deaths. Veterans account for 14 percent of Americas suicides but only represent 8 percent of the population, according to a VA report reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. The Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America noted a high number of calls to the VA suicide hotline had been routed to backup call centers. The VA has resolved that issue; the hotline number is: 1-800-273-8255. One reason why veterans are more likely to die during suicide attempts is that theyre more likely to use firearms than civilians. Overall in America, nearly half of all suicides involve guns „ and two-thirds of all gun deaths are suicides. Florida criminologist Tom Gabor has advocated for gun-related policies that can reduce suicides without dramatically challenging the Second Amendment. Red flagŽ laws allow family members or law enforcement to petition courts and require those at risk of self-harm to surrender their firearms. Waiting periods for purchasing firearms could prevent people from obtaining weapons when theyre most at risk. In a study of suicide survivors, those who used guns said that was the easiest method available to them. One stubborn and ill-informed myth is that people who attempt suicide and fail will simply continue to try killing themselves; only about 15 percent of suicides fall into that category. In the vast majority of cases when suicide attempts are interrupted and prevented, those lives are saved for the long haul. For example, in a study of more than 500 people who were prevented from jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, 94 percent of them were still alive 26 years later. One key is to provide those who have attempted suicide with safety plans before they are discharged from hospitals, according to a study published in JAMA Psychology. Too often, patients who have attempted suicide are simply treated and released, but when these patients are given safety plans, the risk of suicide drops by as much as 50 percent. The safety plan includes: listening to patients and determining the warning signs that could trigger them to attempt suicide, creating coping strategies for patients that allow them to confront and overcome thoughts of suicide, and making follow-up calls to patients within 72 hours after theyve left hospital care. What is critically needed is more awareness about the warning signs of suicide, which can be learned through Mental Health First-Aid. Many warning signs of suicide center on lingering feelings of depression and hopelessness. One major resource is the national suicide hotline, which can be reached at 1-800-273-TALK. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Florida Times-Union, a News Herald sister paper with GateHouse Media.OUR VIEWSuicides spike, but help is available Tim Thompson | Publisher Will Glover | Managing Editor Mike Cazalas | Editor PANAMA CITY VIEWPOINTSThe United Nations released a report this month highlighting the hazards posed by the growing quantity of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said this phenomenon has raised the earths temperature and has already resulted in profound alterations to human and natural systems, bringing increases in some types of extreme weather, droughts, floods, sea level rise and biodiversity loss.Ž These effects will grow worse over time, though they could be moderated with firm global action to reduce emissions. But the chances of that happening are slim. President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the Paris Climate Accord, which commits every other country to ambitious measures to curtail global warming. Congress also has shown minimal interest in remedies, which would require sacrifices on the part of the voting public. Despite the clear scientific consensus and the growing evidence, its proved far easier to ignore the problem than to attack it. Opponents have managed to block action by denying climate change is occurring, questioning the human role in it, suggesting it wont do much harm or insisting we cant afford any feasible solutions. Mostly, though, they have succeeded by exploiting the natural tendency of people to do things that suit their needs even when they will put a heavy burden on posterity. That same impulse was behind the 2017 federal tax package, which slashed rates on individuals and corporations. Supporters insisted the cuts would boost economic growth so much that they would pay for themselves. But Monday, the Treasury Department reported the deficit for the fiscal year that just ended totaled $779 billion, a 17 percent jump over fiscal 2017. Total revenue as a share of gross domestic product fell by 4.6 percent. At a time of economic prosperity, the Treasury should be raking in a windfall. Instead, its falling behind. Though Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the deficit is very disturbing,Ž he blamed it on the high cost of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. But outlays as a share of GDP have fallen sharply since 2009. What mostly accounts for the enormous deficit is the decline in revenue „ a product of tax cuts. Its not impossible to balance the budget. We did it in the 1990s. But restraint soon gave way to recklessness. We have entered an era in which trilliondollar deficits will be the norm. In June, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reported: At 78 percent of gross domestic product (GDP), federal debt held by the public is now at its highest level since shortly after World War II. If current laws generally remained unchanged, CBO projects, growing budget deficits would boost that debt sharply over the next 30 years; it would approach 100 percent of GDP by the end of the next decade and 152 percent by 2048. That amount would be the highest in the nations history by far.Ž What do congressional Republicans propose to do? The House voted last month to make the tax cuts permanent „ which would raise the 10-year cost of the tax package to a staggering $2.7 trillion. In both the environmental and the fiscal realms, Americans are living high at the expense of our children and grandchildren. Instead of taking corrective measures that would yield benefits to future generations, we are creating ecological damage and government debt. Its not too late to act to undo many of the mistakes, but our policymakers show no desire to act soon, if ever.Americans living at the expense of posterityThe most enduring consequences of what Congress is doing today comes from two developments about climate change and a big increase in the federal budget de“ cit.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, October 24, 2018 A7 NATION & WORLDThe Associated PressHARTFORD, Conn. „ Police must release disturbing writings and other belongings of the Newtown school shooter to the public because they are not exempt from the states open record laws, the Connecticut Supreme Court ruled Tuesday.The justices issued a 5-0 decision in favor of The Hartford Courant and state Freedom of Information Commission, whose order to police to release shooter Adam Lanzas belongings had been over-turned by a lower court judge. Its not clear when the items will be released.Lanza, 20, fatally shot 20 first-graders and six educa-tors at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012, after killing his mother at their New-town home. He fatally shot himself as police arrived at the school.The motive for the shoot-ing never has been made clear. A report by the Connecticut Child Advocate said Lanzas severe and deteriorating mental health problems, his preoccupation with violence and access to his mothers legal weapons proved a recipe for mass murder.ŽState police searched the Lanza home and seized guns, ammunition and his belongings, including his personal journals. Among the belongings were a spreadsheet ranking mass murders and a notebook titled The Big Book of Granny.Ž The notebook contains a story that Lanza wrote in fifth grade about a woman who uses her rifle caneŽ to kill people at a bank, hockey game and Marine boot camp.The book also contains several chapters with the adventures of Dora the Beserker,Ž influenced by a popular childrens television show. When Granny asks Dora to assassinate a soldier, she replies: I like hurting people ... Especially children.Ž In the same episode, Dora sends Swiper the RaccoonŽ into a day care center to distract the children, then enters and says, Lets hurt children.ŽState police already have released some of Lanzas writ-ings, along with thousands of pages of interviews, docu-ments and other evidence from the investigation. But the full contents of the spreadsheet and the GrannyŽ notebook have not been released.The Courant requested to view 35 items seized from the Lanza house, but state police rejected the request citing privacy rights under the states search and seizure law.The newspaper appealed to the Freedom of Information Commission, which ruled the belongings must be released to the public because the search and seizure law doesnt spe-cifically bar documents seized from peoples homes „ and not used in prosecutions „ from being released to the public. State police appealed to Superior Court, where Judge Carl Schuman agreed with state police and overturned the commissions ruling.Andrew Julien, publisher and editor-in-chief of the Courant, said Lanzas belongings are important for understand-ing mass shootings.Understanding what a mass killer was thinking not only paints a clearer picture of the individual, it helps us identify and understand red flags that could be part of a prevention formula for future mass shoot-ings,Ž he said Tuesday.The state attorney generals office, which represented state police, declined to comment Tuesday. The office could ask the state Supreme Court to reconsider its decision or possibly appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.State police officials did not return messages seeking comment.Justice Raheem Mullins wrote in the unanimous decision that the court must narrowly construeŽ lan-guage in state law that allows exceptions to public disclosure, otherwise any statute governing an agencys general treatment of records becomes a possible restriction on disclosure.ŽThe trial court pointed to nothing in the express terms of the search and seizure statutes that creates confidentiality in the documents or otherwise limits the disclosure, copying, or distribution of the documents,Ž Mullins wrote. Indeed, the search and seizure statutes are silent on the issues of confidentiality, copying, or disclosure to the public.ŽSandy Hook shooters belongings ordered released to publicHealth and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar speaks during a Senate Finance Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington on June 26. Azar says the number of drug overdose deaths has begun to level off after years of relentless increases driven by the opioid epidemic. [AP FILE] The Associated PressWASHINGTON „ The number of U.S. drug overdose deaths has begun to level off after years of relent-less increases driven by the opioid epidemic, health secretary Alex Azar said Tuesday, cautioning its too soon to declare victory.We are so far from the end of the epidemic, but we are perhaps, at the end of the beginning,Ž Azar said in pre-pared remarks for a health care event sponsored by the Milken Institute think tank.Confronting the opioid epidemic has been the rare issue uniting Republicans and Democrats in a politically divided nation. A bill providing major funding for treatment was passed under former President Barack Obama, and two more have followed under President Donald Trump. More than 70,000 people died of drug overdoses last year, according to preliminary numbers released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this summer„ a 10 percent increase from 2016.Azar said in his speech that toward the end of last year and through the begin-ning of this year, the number of deaths has begun to plateau.Ž Azar was not suggesting that deaths are going down, but noting that they appear to be rising at a slower rate than previously seen.Earlier this month, the CDC released figures „ also preliminary „ that appear to show a slowdown in overdose deaths in late 2017 and the first three months of this year. From December to March, those figures show that the pace of the increase during the previous 12 months has slowed from 10 percent to 3 percent, accord-ing to the preliminary CDC figures.Despite the slowdown, the nation remains in the midst of the deadliest drug over-dose epidemic in its history. Opioids were involved in most of the deaths, killing almost 48,000 people last year. While prescription opioid and heroin deaths appear to be leveling off, deaths involving fentanyl, cocaine and methamphetamines are on the rise. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid much more powerful than heroin, and its used as an additive in street drugs.In an interview with The Associated Press this summer, a CDC expert said the overdose death numbers appear to be shifting for the better, but its too soon to draw firm conclusions.Month-to-month data show a leveling off in the number of deaths, said Bob Anderson, a senior statistician with the National Center for Health Statistics. However, those numbers are considered preliminary, since death investigations have not been completed in all cases.It appears at this point that we may have reached a peak and we may start to see a decline,Ž said Anderson. This reminds me of what we saw with HIV in the 90s.ŽFinal numbers for 2018 wont be available until the end of next year and things also could get worse, not better.Health chief: Overdose deaths leveling o Adam Lanza President blasts caravan, looks to make immigration focus ahead of midtermsBy Zeke Miller and Jill ColvinThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Presi-dent Donald Trump declared Monday the U.S. will begin cutting aid to three Central American countries he accused of failing to stop thousands of migrants head-ing for the U.S. border. But across his administration there was no indication of any action in response to what he tweeted was a National Emergy.ŽFor hours on Monday, White House officials were unable to provide an explanation for the presidents threats, which reflected both his apparent frustration with the migrant caravan and his determination to transform it into Republican election gains. Federal agencies said theyd received no guidance on the presidents declaration, issued as he attempts to make illegal immigration a focus of next months mid-term elections.If Trump should follow through with his threat to end or greatly reduce U.S. aid, that could worsen the poverty and violence that are a root cause of the migration he has been railing against, critics said.Trump tweeted, Sadly, it looks like Mexicos Police and Military are unable to stop the Caravan heading to the Southern Border of the United States.Ž He added without evidence that criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in.ŽTrump says hes cutting Central American aidBy Carla K. Johnson and Nicky ForsterThe Associated PressWith Republicans and Dem-ocrats joining forces again in a bipartisan effort to target the U.S. opioid crisis, an Associ-ated Press analysis of the first wave of emergency money from Congress finds that states are taking very differ-ent approaches to spending it.To a large extent, the differences depend on whether states participated in one of the most divisive issues in recent American politics: the health overhaul known as Obamacare.ŽThe AP analysis found states that expanded Medicaid under President Barack Obamas health overhaul reported spending their alloca-tions more slowly than states that didnt expand the health insurance program to poor, childless adults.Why? In states that expanded Medicaid, the insur-ance program already covers addiction treatment for nearly everyone who is poor and needs it.Medicaid allows states to go beyond the basics with the grant money, while non-expansion states have to fill in for basic needs with fewer dol-lars, said Brendan Saloner, an addiction researcher at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. In effect, Med-icaid expansion states had a running start on the opioid crisis, while states without the extra Medicaid funding hastened to catch up.Non-expansion states are dealing with populations more likely to be uninsured and more likely to need coverage for addiction treatment,Ž Saloner said. In contrast, states with Medicaid expansion can use the grants to create new infra-structure, asking providers to take risks by investing in new personnel, new systems and new ways of doing things,Ž Saloner said. The puzzle is how to keep momentum going after the funds are gone.ŽThe Medicaid insurance expansion gives states a head start because they have a coordinated, reliable and con-sistent source of coverageŽ for a demographic group hit hard by addiction, said Trish Riley, executive director of the National Academy for State Health Policy. Its not grant funded. Its not stopgap,Ž Riley said.Coverage matters, period,Ž Riley said.Obamacare shapes opioid grant spendingMichael Robinson, of North Reading, Mass., in recovery from heroin addiction, stands for a photo Oct. 1 near the Charles River in Cambridge, Mass.

Up to $8 million will cover a con-tract extension with Marshall Brothers Construction and Engineering „ first hired by the city to construct a new wastewater treatment plant „ to help fully restore sewage services knocked out by the hurricane two weeks ago.The city will be responsi-ble for paying for all of that,Ž Jenna Haligas, Panama City commissioner, said during the meeting. We need to make decisions for what people need today. ƒ Our hopes are well be reimbursed by FEMA.ŽThe City Commission approved the spending during its regular meeting Tuesday, though held at the Oakland Terrace Clubhouse since its main meeting building was too damaged by the hurri-cane. Commission members and city officials had to share a microphone as they talked over the rumbling sound of equipment pumping air through plastic tubes in the hallway to mitigate water damage from the storm.Mark McQueen, city man-ager, said each of the relief stations would last for 30 City OKs r elief sta tions, repair work By Christine SextonThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis and Democratic nominee Andrew Gillum have clashed over health care as they battle in the Nov. 6 election.But when it comes to the nuts and bolts of providing access to coverage, it might be their running mates who have a deeper knowledge of the industry and the ripple effects that potential changes could have across the state.DeSantis, who has sharply criticized the federal Affordable Care Act and government-provided health care, tapped as his running mate state Rep. Jeanette Nunez, a Miami Republican whose income comes in part from a public hospital that relies heavily on Medicaid.Gillum, meanwhile, chose as his running mate Winter Park businessman Chris King, who spelled out a detailed health-care proposal while running unsuccessfully in the Demo-cratic primary for governor. King has shied away from discussing the concept known as Medicare for all,Ž which Gillum embraced in the primary.Health care has become a major issue in the race for governor and in numerous other races. A key part of that issue is the role government programs, such as Medicaid and Medicare, Running mates to add heft on health care ght Sean Gennari, owner of Top Tree Care, stands in front of a large tree being lifted off property by a crane. Gennari said his Mi chiganbased company has removed hundreds of trees in the Panama City area. [SARAH LEBLANC/GATEHOUSE MEDIA] By Sarah LeBlancGatehouse MediaLYNN HAVEN „ Drive through Lynn Haven, and the roar of chainsaws fills the air.Branches litter the streets, and cut up tree trunks sit on corners waiting to be picked up two weeks after Hurricane Michael tore through the region. Theres only a few houses on each block that havent been damaged or destroyed by a tree falling on the roof.One of those damaged houses belongs to Philip Sweeny. Ten years ago, Sweeny and his father built a home together in Lynn Haven. Now, Sweeny isnt sure he will be able to stay.Hurricane Michael toppled four trees onto his home. Two landed on his porch, the others on the roof of his home. His in-laws, who are contractors, helped cut down the trees from the porch so his family could see the damage inside.Monday, Sweeny met with an insurance adjuster. That visit will help Sweeny decide if he can afford to keep the home, as well as remove the trees.We found some significant damage to the house so we didnt want to pay out of pocket to get the tree removed until we had the adjuster come out and find out what the next steps are from the insurance com-pany,Ž Sweeny said.Waiting for an adjuster seems to be the reason other Lynn Haven residents havent removed trees both large and small from their home either. Sean Gennari, owner of Top Tree Care Inc., said without insurance, people could be paying between $1,800 to $15,000 to remove trees from yards and homes.That price tag, on top of other possible damage to the home, means people like Sweeny cant afford to move back into their homes right away.Were pretty much tapped out as far as funds go,Ž Sweeny said. We cant spend money unless we get it back.ŽHurricane gone, but downed trees remainHomeowners must endure a wait to get trees o their property because of the high demand of insurance adjusters and he y costsRepublican state Rep. Matt Caldwell and Democrat Nikki Fried, running in the Nov. 6 election to replace term-limited Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and head the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, engaged in a fast-paced debate on the show Facing South Florida.Ž [CBS MIAMI] By Jim TurnerThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ Democrat Nikki Fried, a medical-marijuana lobby-ist, had to defend her desire to move the states oversight of medical marijuana into the agency she wants to run.Her Republican opponent, state Rep. Matt Caldwell, was questioned about his support for a bill that delayed for 20 years an unmet deadline to reduce nutrients flowing into Lake Okeechobee.Fried and Caldwell „ running in the Nov. 6 election to replace term-limited Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and head the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services „ engaged in a fast-paced debate Sunday during the show Facing South FloridaŽ on CBS Miami.While the two have appeared at the same events during the campaign, the television show was the only time they are scheduled to jointly discuss issues.Fried, Caldwell face o over medical pot, water See RELIEF, B2 See HEALTH CARE, B2 See TREES, B2 See POT, B2

** B2 Wednesday, October 24, 2018 | The News HeraldThe shows host, veteran repo rter Jim DeFede, ran through a series of topics, including the departments handling of concealed-weap-ons licenses under Putnam, marijuana, water quality, the North American Free Trade Agreement, immigration, clemency and the states Do Not CallŽ solicitation list.Fried, a Fort Lauderdale attorney and lobbyist who recently was endorsed by U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Mas-sachusetts, and Caldwell, a North Fort Myers real-estate appraiser who has been part of the Republican leadership of the state House, differed on almost every issue, including their approaches to strengthen the Do Not CallŽ list.DeFede jokingly said stopping the annoyingŽ phone calls would be the key to win-ning the statewide contest.Caldwell said the agency needs to investigate and prosecute scam artistsŽ and suggested the agency set up a system so people can immediately text the agency from their cellphones the numbers of telemarketers.Its really about time,Ž Caldwell said. As soon as they give you the call, report-ing that and getting that investigation away immedi-ately, thats going to improve the chances that we can track them down through the inter-net to where theyre hiding.ŽFried, a former attorney with the Alachua County Public Defenders Office, agreed with Caldwell that improving technology and quickly start-ing investigations is needed. But she said the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services also must provide more consumer services.When individuals actually are calling in and complaining about these things, there is no one on the other line,Ž Fried said. So one of the other things, when Im in office, is to re-prioritize the consumer ser-vices of this job to make sure there is someone actually on the other line to answer these complaints.ŽFried, who was a registered lobbyist this year for the marijuana operator San Felasco Nurseries, faced stiffer questioning about her stances on the separate issues of moving the states oversight of medical marijuana from the Department of Health to the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and her criticism that the Putnam-run agency has been too cozy with the National Rifle Association.Putnam, a Republican, has drawn Democratic criticism, in part, for a past statement that he was a proud NRA sellout.Ž The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is in charge of issuing concealed-weapons licenses.Fried said she is beholdenŽ to patients who need medical marijuana, not the industry that she has represented and has supported her campaign. She pointed to criticism that the GOP-dominated Legislature has not properly carried out a 2016 constitutional amendment that broadly legalized medical marijuana in the state.My campaign is supported by many people, including over 1,000 individuals, who have given campaign contributions, who believe that they deserve access,Ž Fried said. Seventy-two percent of our citizens voted for medical marijuana, and the Legislature and the governors office continues to put up roadblocks.ŽCaldwell, who is endorsed by the NRA, said he would let the votersŽ decide who Fried is beholden to, while noting he co-sponsored a bill in 2014 „ commonly known as the Charlottes WebŽ bill „ that legalized limited types of non-euphoric medical cannabis.However, Caldwell was put on the defensive as discussion turned to a 2016 water bill and problems with toxic algae and red tide that have plagued waterways and coastal areas in Southeast and Southwest Florida.Fried said water legislation by Caldwell guttedŽ Department of Environmental Protection regulations and has played a key role in degrading the states environment.Caldwell, who has been a point man for the Republican-dominated House on water issues, said his measures require farmers to implement the most cutting-edge tech-nologyŽ related to the use of phosphates and didnt roll back any water quality standards.One of the states key water issues has involved polluted water being released from Lake Okeechobee and going into the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee estuaries, helping lead to algae in waterways.DeFede asked if the 2016 bill „ which included issues such as extending the deadline related to nutrients flowing into Lake Okeechobee and limiting responsibilities for water-management districts on water supplies „ kicked that problem down the road.ŽCaldwell replied that the original bill was to develop a plan for how youre going to solve Lake OkeechobeeŽ and that his legislation drew bipar-tisan support. Lake Okeechobee is going to be the biggest problem to solve,Ž Caldwell continued. Its got 100 years of inputs, muck just sitting at the bottom of the lake. Thats a much larger question than how were going to recon-figure the flood control system.ŽAfter Fried retorted that Caldwells Southwest Florida district is suffering from the water-quality problems, Caldwell said people are misrepresenting the issue for political gain.This is why this problem didnt get addressed for 20 years. Its why I ran for the House,Ž Caldwell said. People are misrepresenting what the situation is. People are trying to utilize this bad situation to make political gains, rather than focusing on solutions, rather than bringing people together.Ž POTFrom Page B1should play in the health-care system.While DeSantis criti-cizes the Affordable Care Act and government pro-grams, his running mate has deep ties to the public Jackson Memorial Hospi-tal, one of South Floridas most important health-care providers.A financial-disclosure form filed with the state shows that Nunez drew a $148,000 salary last year from OnPoint Strategies, a consulting firm she launched in 2013 after she left a job with Kendall Regional Medical Center.The firms biggest client, according to the form, is Jackson Memo-rial. Public hospitals have been among the biggest proponents in recent years of efforts to expand eligi-bility for Medicaid, a key element of the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.Nunez, who opposed Medicaid expansion in the House, wrote in an email to The News Service of Florida, that, if elected, her experience in health care, will only benefit Florida families.ŽJackson is a wellknown and respected institution that saves lives, invests in cutting edge technology and is a valued community partner, she wrote in the email. I am proud of my work and I know that the experience I have from working in health care and seeing the real impacts it has on Floridians.ŽWhile Nunez has a long track record on healthcare issues, the DeSantis campaign has come under fire for not releasing a detailed health-care plan ahead of the election. But Gillum, who as Tallahassee mayor has a limited record of dealing with health-care issues, also hasnt released a detailed plan explaining his priorities.Gillum is quick to sup-port Obamacare, and with it, a Medicaid expansion for many low-income adults who are currently blocked from getting cov-erage in Florida. Medicaid is a government program that pays health-care costs for poor and dis-abled people.Outgoing Republican Gov. Rick Scott and the GOP-controlled Florida House have blocked attempts to expand Medicaid, while 32 other states have approved such expansions under Obamacare.Gillum also supports a popular provision of former President Barack Obamas signature law that provides protections for people with pre-exist-ing conditions.But during the Demo-cratic primary campaign, Gillum also came out in support of Medicare for all,Ž which is an alternative to Obamacare espoused by Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont progressive who unsuccessfully sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016. Even though Medicare for allŽ would have to be approved by Con-gress and not at the state level, Gillums stance helped earn him Sanders endorsement.While Medicare for allŽ and Obamacare have a similar goal of ensuring more people have access to health coverage, the approaches are different. Obamacare works to make private insurance affordable and largely picks up the tab for states to expand Medicaid eligibility.In contrast, Medicare for allŽ would allow all Americans to enroll in the Medicare program, which currently is limited to people who are 65 or older or have disabilities. But it also would fold funding for existing health care programs „ including Medicare, Medicaid and the militarys TRICARE „ into one new program.Medicare for allŽ would replace private insurers with a public insurance system, and employers and individu-als wouldnt choose plans. They essentially would be enrolled in a program.King, who was one of five candidates in the Democratic gubernatorial primary, did not come out in support of the Medicare-for-all pro-posal during the primary campaign. He released a detailed health-care proposal showing how he would work to improve Obamacare by increasing the number of insurance companies selling health policies on the federal health-insurance exchange.Kings plan would have required the insurance companies that want to sell Medicare plans in the state or participate in Medicaid to also write on the exchange.After becoming Gil-lums running mate, King has stumped across the state promising that he and Gillum would work to do everything they can to protect Medicare, which he described as an extraordinary program that serves so many of Floridas seniors.Ž But that is not the same thing as the Medicare for allŽ concept.Gillum also is now appearing to sidestep questions about the Medi-care proposal.In their first debate Sunday, DeSantis repeat-edly hit Gillum over his past support for Medicare for all,Ž even asking him pointedly if he would sign legislation that would put the system in place in Florida.Gillum did not address his support for the proposal and, instead criticized DeSantis, a former congressman, for votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act.His votes have deluded him into his own definition of what health care is,Ž Gillum said.DeSantis and Nunez are on the record saying details of their health care plans will be released. But with two weeks left before the election, that hasnt occurred.DeSantis answer to a reporters question this week, though, shows insight into how Nunez might be helping shape his positions. Scott and House leaders, including Nunez, tried unsuccessfully to elimi-nate an arcane health-care licensure program called certificate of need.They offered it as an alternative to Medicaid expansion, arguing that the licensure requirement is an unnecessary regula-tion that enables some providers to monopolize the health-care delivery system.While their efforts fell short, DeSantis has appeared to take up the cause.Health care is really the only area that where if you go to a building on one side of the street, a proce-dure may cost $5,000 but if you go two blocks the other way the same thing can cost $17,000. It makes no sense,Ž DeSantis said. HEALTH CAREFrom Page B1 Gennari estimates the Panama City area has lost 95 percent of its trees. Many of those trees are still leaning on homes like Sweenys, waiting to be removed once residents who evacuated return to assess the destruction. Sweeny him-self has been staying in Atlanta with family and his two young children.The extent to which homeowners are reimbursed for damage depends on their policy, but insurance adjusters look for wind damage, dents, and any dislocation that has happened as a result of the storm. When a person calls their insurance company also can affect how soon the adjuster can make it to their home.Sunday Davis called her insurance company last week. While she was in Tallahassee during the hurricane, a large tree snapped near its base and fell on to her roof. She met with her adjuster this week to deter-mine if they would cover the cost of removing the tree.Davis said she has gotten quotes of about $800. If that cost isnt covered by insurance, she isnt sure what she will do.Youre just about homeless,Ž Davis said. Houses got torn all the way down, you have to stay with somebody or try to find an apartment.ŽWhile her home is without water or power, Davis still sleeps there at night, and stays with friends and family during the day. She hopes to repair her home and move back in eventually.Where there are fallen trees, there also are tree removal ser-vices. Skyler Delmott works with Timber Warriors, a com-pany that is subcontracted by insurance companies to remove trees. He said his team has been traveling from Dothan, Ala-bama, every day to work in the Panama City area from dawn to dusk.Delmott said Timber War-riors might be working to clean up tree debris in Florida through Thanksgiving.Weve been working since the day after it blew through,Ž Delmott said. Even coming in 100 miles north we were hitting downed power lines on the road.ŽGennari said his crew has removed hundreds of trees, and has enough work for at least another week.Every home has damage,Ž Gennari said. This is by far the worst hurricane Ive ever seen.Ž TREESFrom Page B1days and had been set up around the city.Twelve days have passed and we still dont have potable water for citizens and some still dont have power,Ž McQueen said, describing why the stations were needed. Theyre supposed to have tents with showers, air condi-tioning, food, water and ice.ŽLocations for the stations include the Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center at 705 E. 14th Court; Daffin Park at 320 Kraft Ave.; Cove Shop-ping Center at 925 Cherry St.; Al Helms Dog Park at 1022 Balboa Ave.; Northstar Church at 2379 St. Andrews Blvd.; Boys and Girls Club at 3404 W. 19th St.; Old Party City Store at 2015 W. 23rd St.; Palm Bay Prep Academy at 1104 Balboa Ave.; and the Panama City Mall at the corner of 23rd Street and State 77.McQueen added that rep-resentatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency would be at each sta-tion to help residents register for federal assistance.McQueen said Marshall Brothers had worked with the city since the hurricane to help restore sewage services. The city awarded a $37 million contract with the company two years ago to replace the 30-year-old St. Andrews Water Treatment Facility. The new facility hasnt officially gone online, McQueen said.They got their staff together to get our sewer system back up,Ž said Mayor Greg Brudnicki.Also during the meeting, the commission expanded McQueens spending authority. For the next 90 days, McQueen has the authority to spend up to $100,000 without commis-sion approval. Previously, he was limited to $25,000.McQueen said after the meeting that the change gives him more flexibility to deal with issues caused by the hur-ricane. Some purchases the city must make include dump-sters, water, food, pumps and generators.The scale of things I have to purchase is much larger than before,Ž McQueen said.During the meeting, Brudnicki thanked all the city workers who have helped in the recovery efforts so far, particularly McQueen.Everyone in this city has done so much, and this man has led them,Ž Brudnicki said, pointing at McQueen. Theres nobody else who could have done that, I guar-antee it.Ž RELIEFFrom Page B1

** B4 Wednesday, October 24, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Lindsey TannerThe Associated PressPeople seeking dubious, potentially harmful treat-ment for cancer and other ailments raised almost $7 million over two years from crowdfunding sites, a study found.Echoing recent research on campaigns for stem cell therapies, the findings raise more questions about an increasingly popular way to help pay for costly, and sometimes unproven, medical care.Soliciting money on GoFundMe and other sites eliminates doctors, hospi-tals, insurance companies and other gatekeepersŽ that can be a barrier to expensive treatment, said lead author Dr. Ford Vox, an ethicist and brain injury expert at Shepherd Center rehabilitation hospital in Atlanta. He calls it the democratiza-tion of economic power through social mediaŽ but says it can pose an ethical dilemma. Online fundraising has a big bright sideŽ when it helps patients pay for legitimate care, he said. Communities are really being able to rally around people in rough times. Thats fantastic, but there is this very clear dark sideŽ when treatments sought are worthless or even dangerous.His study was published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association.GoFundMe says campaigns for medical care are increasing and are among the most numerous on its site. They include solicitations for conventional treatment and for unproven alter-native therapies.We always encourage people to fully research whatever it is they are raising money for and to be absolutely transparent on their GoFundMe page, so donors can make an informed decision on what theyre donating to,Ž GoFundMe said in an emailed statement.The researchers exam-ined campaigns posted from November 2015 through mid-December 2017, mostly on GoFundMe. They focused on five treatments sought in about 1,000 campaigns: homeopathy or naturopa-thy for cancer; hyperbaric oxygen for brain injuries; stem cells for brain or spinal cord injuries; and long-term antibiotics for persistent Lyme disease.While some patients swear they have benefited from some of the treatments, there is no rigorous scientific evidence that any of them work for the conditions involved, the researchers said.The most numerous were solicitations for homeopathy or natu-ropathy for cancer „ 474 requests seeking more than $12 million. About one-quarter of that was raised. Homeopathic products typically contain heavily diluted drugs, vitamins or minerals said to promote healing, although some have been found to contain toxic amounts. Naturopathy, another alternative medicine practice, sometimes uses homeopathic products, herbs and dietary supple-ments or body cleanses.Michelle Drapeau has raised about $7,000 on GoFundMe for homeopa-thy and other alternative remedies since being diagnosed with advanced stomach cancer in Febru-ary 2017. The 45-year-old investment banker from West Palm Beach credits them with keeping her alive since she stopped chemotherapy more than a year ago. I wanted to make sure I explored every and all options,Ž Drapeau said. Its vital for everyone to have that opportunity.ŽDr. Leonard Lichtenfeld, the American Cancer Societys deputy chief medical officer, said its important to consider what might drive some patients to turn to unproven remedies. U.S. health care costs are exor-bitant and many patients run out of money trying to pay them.And despite considerable progress against cancer and other illnesses, conventional treatment cant cure every patient, he noted.We should not be judgmental and come out and say this is terrible,Ž Lichtenfeld said.No one wants to hear, You have cancer, and especially no one wants to hear that theres no treatment available that can help you,Ž he said. You begin to understand why people may turn to unproven treatments and you can understand why others reach out to try to support them.What we need to do is to better inform, even better care for our patients and their fami-lies, so they dont feel this is what they need to do.ŽGoFundMe means big bucks for dubious careBy Hannah MorseThe Palm Beach PostPALM BEACH GARDENS „ These days, its rare not to see Grace Car-penter greet the morning sun at the beach.It was something she had done in her early 20s, but stopped because I just got caught up in life just like everyone else does,Ž she said from her Palm Beach Gardens home on a recent afternoon.At age 36, she was diag-nosed with breast cancer. Now, three years later, she starts her days with the ocean.It was a place I could go, I could tell my day was just a good day for the most part,Ž she said. Yeah, I hit bumps in the road during the day but the way I was handling it was greatly different. I like the way I feel and I keep coming back to it.ŽThat day, in the corner of Carpenters living room, the sound of crash-ing waves emanated from speakers attached to an Adirondack chair. With the help of artist Jordan Clemmons, the chairs back slats are painted with a pink sunrise, sand and seashells dust the chairs front, yoga figures strike various poses on the left armrest and a yin and yang is drawn with positive and negative words from her journey through life.The sunrise is what keeps Carpenter healthy „ mind, body and soul „ after being cancer-free. Her chair is placed at Log-gerhead Marinelife Center for the month of October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, as part of Jupiter Medical Cen-ters Pink Chair Project. The medical center and the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center asked breast cancer survivors to paint a chair that represented their motivation through treatment. The chairs and survivor stories are placed around Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens.The American Cancer Society estimates that more than 266,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women and 2,550 new cases diagnosed in men. It most often is found from the discovery of a lump in the breast, but early breast cancer is most com-monly diagnosed through mammograms.There are 29 chairs in all, mostly representing women who were treated by Jupiter Medical Center. Some had beach themes, like Carpenters. Others had flowers, like survivor Jo Nagorka. One had a blunt message for the disease: Cancer, Kiss My A(asterisk)(asterisk).Ž Before her diagnosis, I was not a happy person,Ž Carpenter said. She was studying to become a funeral director and writ-ing a paper when she put her laptop aside. It was her time of the month and her breasts were sensitive. But a pea-sized knot in the tissue gave her pause. It kept growing as the weeks passed.She found out a tumor was growing in her breast, but was not in her lymph nodes.For me, it was a bad diagnosis, but I made it a positive experience,Ž she said.Carpenter has tacked up a piece of paper titled My Saving Grace Checklist.Ž She checked off items like going through eight rounds of chemotherapy, going through 33 rounds of radiation therapy, having a double mastectomy and reconstruction. One item not yet complete, as its an ongoing process: Live in the moment, Healthy, Advocate, Love, Laugh.ŽI think for me the big-gest growth and change for me has been spiritually within myself and want-ing to live a life fuller than what it was before,Ž she said.Nagorka, 58, emanates a quiet calm in her person-ality and paintings. Before cancer, she considered herself a positive person. As her five-year anniver-sary of being cancer-free comes up in November, she is still appreciative of life.I appreciate every day,Ž she said. Everybody I meet, thats the most important person I meet because they are.ŽWhen Nagorka found out she had Stage 2 breast cancer, she didnt tell anyone for three days.She had skipped a few annual doctor visits, but in 2013 a nurse practitioner felt something Nagorka had discovered in the shower a week before: a golf ball-sized lump in her left breast.The first time she cried, she said, is when she found out she needed chemotherapy.First one, your body kind of goes into shock, but you get through it. The second one wasnt so bad. But the third one is when everything kind of fell apart,Ž she said. It starts killing the cancer cells and the other cells. It took two years for her body to feel normal again.Nagorka loved paint-ing as a child and into her college years, but it wasnt until after her mother, Aileen, died two years after her cancer diagnosis that she picked it back up and never let go.She enjoys painting flowers, serene beach scenes and designs on childrens rocking chairs.You get lost in it,Ž she said. You do it and its fun.ŽHer hibiscus chair, displayed at Bloomingdales at The Gardens Mall, has some pink in it, but explodes with green, purple, blue and yellow, too.In a way, Nagorka sees life after cancer the same way Carpenter does.The sun goes up. The sun goes down,Ž Nagorka said. Youre still here to see it.ŽPainted chairs re ect life, celebrate cancer survivalIn this image from video posted on YouTube on Aug. 11, Michelle Drapeau, a stomach cancer patient in West Palm Beach, speaks about her condition.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, October 24, 2018 B7By Christopher SpataTampa Bay TimesTAMPA „ Jared Sanchezs master bedroom has the vibe of a novelty pizza restaurant for children, with an electric bill to match. Its close to $400 a month.Lights spell out The KingŽ in every direction. There are 50-inch monitors, arcade machines, mint condition He-Mans. The floor is a black-and-white checkerboard.Then theres the live wire that is Sanchez himself. Seated at his control center, his frosted tips perfectly gelled, he taps his foot in a sparkly Air Jordan. His shirt says The King is back.ŽThis is a 37-year-old man living his dream. The dream of finding an obscure Chuck E. Cheese robot from his childhood and bringing it back to life.To his left, a 10-foot metal skeleton with creepy eyeballs the size of baseballs stares down. To his right, two 700-pound lions with the same blue eyes stand idle in the sequined costumes he sewed for them. He taps a button and the lions come alive. They dance, strum guitars and sing a parody of a booming Bon Jovi song, a sharp pfft, pfft, pfftŽ shooting from their pneu-matic cylinders. These are the Kings.All it takes is the right person to see this, and we could make a television show out of this, like easily,Ž Sanchez yells over the music. And I have people saying, Oh, its old technology, its old technology. Well, thats what they told Jim Henson. Thats exactly what they told him!ŽHe takes a pull from a vape pen, checks wires and changes inputs. He sings along with the Kings.Its King life! Its my new endeavorrr! This is gonna rock for-ev-errrr! I just wanna sing while Im aliiiive!Sanchez was scarred by his 12th birthday. It was 1992 and his parents brought him to Chuck E. Cheese in Albuquerque, New Mexico, as they had many times before.At the time, Chuck E. Cheeses Pizza Time Theatre featured a full band of animatronic, human-sized animals. It was a wild, futuristic con-cept when Atari founder Nolan Bushnell convinced the com-pany to open the first Chuck E. Cheeses in 1977.But young Sanchez didnt care about Chuck E., Helen Henny or the rest. He was enraptured by The King „ a giant, Elvis-impersonating lion that performed in the lounge, its own corner of the restaurant.He moved so smoothly, it looked to me as if he was real,Ž Sanchez said of The King. All the other robots moved like robots.ŽThat year, Sanchez remem-bers rushing to The Kings stage only to find an empty space and a woman sweeping the floor.Son, they done threw that thing out months ago.ŽHeartbroken and without answers, he forced his parents to leave and go to Pistol Petes Pizzeria.For the next two decades, he had a recurring nightmare. He would be walking into Chuck E. Cheese about to see The King again, but just as he turned the corner, he would wake up.The King was collateral damage in the great pizza wars of the 1980s, ending with Chuck E. Cheeses bankruptcy and takeover by corporate arch enemy Showbiz Pizza. Shortly before the company failed, a few Kings were converted to King Kats, Michael Jackson imper-sonators meant to keep up with the times. It was probably too little, too late.Most Kings were tossed out, destroyed or auctioned as stores closed or were remodeled under Showbizs new vision. Separate lounges, The Kings domain, were eliminated, said Michael Scherpenberg, an amateur Chuck E. Cheese historian in Texas who maintains a Dolly Dimples piano-playing hippo in his living room.Showbiz robots were stripped of their fur and rubber skin and Frankensteined into Chuck E. Cheese branded characters. Training videos detailing this nightmarish process have sur-vived on YouTube.After high school and four years in the Navy, Sanchez moved to Florida and worked as a stocker at Walmart before moving to the vision center and eventually becoming a licensed optician.He loved video games, so for a while, he created custom, multigame arcade machines as a business. He realized optical software was bad, so he taught himself to code and sold his own software for managing optical practices. He wasnt really satisfied.He eventually ended up back with Walmart, and after a couple years, he said, landed a $93,000-a-year job as a cor-porate project supervisor. But spending weeks at a time on the road got to him. Knowing before the employees when their store would be closing, or having to fire someone personally, made him sick. He left the position after a year, wiped out by the stress.I didnt know what a ner-vous breakdown was then,Ž he says now. But it was a nervous breakdown.ŽIt was around this time that the first King arrived.The Kings disappearance had bugged Sanchez for years. In the mid-1990s, he would sit in the library at his military boarding school on weekends, when other cadets left campus, scour-ing the early internet for info on The King. It was almost a decade before he found anything, but in 2006, a King suddenly appeared on eBay for $25,000.It was an impossible sum, but Sanchez started emailing owner Arthur Green in Saugerties, New York „ for another 10 years. He explained how much he adored The King. He sent childhood photos of himself at Chuck E. Cheese.Green, who supplies props for films and TV, relented in 2015.He was, uh, persistent. A nice persistent,Ž Green said. I actually had people offer me more money, but Jared deserved it. I knew he was the one who could get it going again. ... So we let him make payments, and we dont do payments.ŽSanchez eventually paid Green $10,000. The King arrived in Tampa on a truck in 2016.After sitting in storage for decades, it was shot. Squirrels had stuffed its fuzzy head full of acorns. Sanchez spent months replacing its cylinders and learning to sew so he could fit him with new fur. He figured out how to make The King work with a modern computer instead of its old reel-to-reel machine, and learned to painstakingly program each of its movements.At the same time, he was an emotional wreck. He was trying medications from his doctor with little success. He stayed cooped up in his house for weeks, watching videos he had made of The King.The King was the one thing who had comforted him through his life. That, and singing.Thats when me and The King kind of started blending.ŽIf he wanted The King to live on, it was up to him. If he wanted more King videos to watch, he would have to make them.So, he remodeled his master bedroom into a studio and started writing and recording parody songs. He took voice lessons, bought a professional microphone and used green-screen special effects. He spent weeks perfecting videos and posted them to his YouTube channel.He took a job with Nationwide Vision on Dale Mabry Avenue but avoided getting into a work situation that would keep him away from his creative passion. When he gets home, he makes King videos into the middle of the night. I Got the King Set on You.Ž Do You Believe in King?Ž The Power of King.ŽHis partner of 14 years sits in the den watching TV and listens to Sanchez sing.Oh my God,Ž Brent Culver will say.Im glad that take is done,Ž Sanchez will say. What was that? Take 200?ŽA few months ago, Sanchez heard about another King at Captain Daves roller rink in Michigan. He gave Captain Dave $2,500 and returned with King No. 2 in his passenger seat. He made a pit stop at Jungle Jims, a bizarre grocery store near Cincinnati with a dilapi-dated King on display. Sanchez wheeled the King in a shopping cart to visit his brother.ŽA few weeks ago, he heard from a guy in Texas who had a couple more Kings in storage in Ocoee. Sanchez helped the man clean out the storage unit and let him sleep at his house. He got the Kings in exchange. Now, he owns four Kings out of seven he believes exist. He has a few thousand YouTube subscribers.Parents email him, he said. Autistic children are calmed by the YouTube videos. He sent one boy a piece of the Kings fur. The mother cried.His goal is to build his YouTube following up to 100,000 subscribers. That, he said, would bring in about $5,000 a month and allow him to run The King full time. His channel currently makes about $30 a month.Then there could be a TV show, and then, who knows? Maybe a childrens restaurant, with a salon attached and a bar for the dads to play retro video games in and the Kings performing live for an audience again.Chuck E.

[JAMES BORCHUCK/TAMPA BAY TIMES] By Matt SoergelGateHouse Media FloridaJACKSONVILLE „ As the killing pandemic spread through Jacksonville in the dire month of October 1918, W.S. Henley, acting district manager of the Southern Bell Telephone & Telegraph Company, grew increasingly desperate.By Oct. 7, 64 out of his 191 telephone operators were sick, one in every three. By Oct. 9, 83 operators were missing. The next day, 95 were out. By then, for every operator able to make it to work, there was one unable to work, sick or perhaps dead.As more and more families fell victim to Spanish influenza, more and more phone calls were made, and Henleys beleaguered operators could not keep up. So he took out advertisements in the citys newspapers, pleading for the patriotic cooperation of the entire telephone using publicŽ to refrain from making unnec-essary calls, while begging for experienced operators to come volunteer during this trouble.ŽHe signed each ad the same way: Yours respectfully, W.S. Henley, Acting District ManagerŽ „ likely leading many to wonder what had hap-pened to the district manager he replaced.The suffering among those Southern Bell operators shows how widespread the Spanish flu pandemic was 100 years ago, when it killed an estimated 50 million across the globe, includ-ing 675,000 in America.As seen in newspapers of the time, its clear Jacksonville suffered too: In October alone, the deadliest month, the city reported that more than 400 residents died from Spanish flu, out of a population that was likely close to 90,000.Its a staggering amount: If translated to todays Jacksonville, that would be more than 4,000 victims in a month. The number could have been even higher: From the reporting in newspapers, its not apparent that the total included the 155 reported dead that October at Camp Joseph E. Johnston. That was the Army base where Naval Air Station Jacksonville is now, where men trained for the war in Europe in crowded conditions ripe for the disease to fester and spread.Even in the middle of the epidemic, though, the Florida Times-Union, the morning paper, and the Florida Metrop-olis, the afternoon paper, devoted much of their space to the Allies breakthroughs in the last weeks of World War I. And story after story pushed the sale of Liberty Bonds to help the war effort.The Spanish influenza outbreak received much less attention, and some of that seemed insistent on down-playing the danger, with stories regularly saying how the worst was over and how much better off Jacksonville was compared to other cities of its size.The scrappier Metropolis, though, did list many of the citys deaths in sparse but heartbreaking detail. Consider the toll in Oct. 15s edition, when it reported that 25 people had died the previous day „ and that recent victims included three young brothers by the name of Keene ... one a boy of 7 years, and a colored man and wife named Wingard, (who) died within several hours of each other Sunday.ŽMost days, it listed the names of those reported dead, from infants to the elderly, with many victims in their teens, 20s and 30s. The dead were grouped by race: In this segre-gated city, even that daily death toll was broken down by white and black.The newspapers noted that Jacksonville wasnt alone in its struggles: The pandemic had gone coast to coast. So there was room for the brief, tragic story of 46-year-old Joseph Morr of Richmond, Virginia, who, after his wife died of the flu, put a revolver to his fore-head and fired, falling dead over her body. Menace to othersIt didnt seem that big a threat at first.Sept. 19s newspapers did take note of 1,000 cases of mild influenzaŽ found at a naval training station in Mich-igan. But they approvingly noted, nine days later, that just 13 cases had been reported at Jacksonvilles local base, Camp Johnston: Influenza is under perfect control here ... there is no cause for alarm as to the spreading of the disease.ŽAs September turned to October, though, cracks appeared in that reassuring tone.In Oct. 1s Times-Union, city health director Dr. William W. McDonnell reported that just two people had died from flu in Jacksonville during the previous two weeks. Still, given the news from elsewhere, it would behoove citizens to take caution anyway.Avoid crowds, he advised „ patriotic rallies, theaters, churches and crowded street cars. Stay away from people who are sneezing or coughing.And if you fall sick? Go to bed and stay there „ you are a menace to others if you are about.ŽThe next days papers told of the flu spreading in military camps, while in Washington, D.C., 3,000 teachers and chil-dren were down with the flu.Meanwhile from Lake City came the sad story of Mrs. D.W. Black, whose husband, a railroad conductor, went ahead with his usual run on the Coast Line because she had seemed to be recovering from the flu. Not so: Upon his return in the afternoon (he) found her gone.ŽOn Oct. 4, McDonnell and other doctors agreed in the Metropolis that the peak of the disease had been reached in Jacksonville. There was no need to panic or close public buildings.Yet observant readers might have felt some alarm anyway: Bracketing that article was one claiming the situation at Camp Johnston was well in handŽ at Camp Johnston, even though 181 new cases of the flu were observed in the previous day.

His family also was on hand.My brother and I grew up in this park. We played as kids. My cousin reminded me the other day of my remark that it was a sanctuary, and it really was,Ž said Bruce Petty. It was a place for us to escape and be kids and have fun. The fact that we are doing this today and the part that we played in it makes it so much more special.ŽTom Petty died Oct. 2, 2017. He was born Oct. 20, 1950, in Gainesville and lived in the city until he left for Los Angeles to make it big in the music business.Petty sold millions of records worldwide with the Heartbreak-ers, the Traveling Wilburys supergroup and as a solo artist. He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.His family lived a block from the Gainesville park and it was like a second home for him and his brother.Other area events celebrated the singer and included the Tom Petty Birthday Bash and Tom Petty Weekend.Adria Petty, Toms daugh-ter, grew up in Los Angeles but spent time in North Florida with her parents. She talked about a song called GainesvilleŽ thats on An American Treasure,Ž a new four-CD box set of Pettys music.Gainesville is an extraordi-nary place and if you listen to my dads music here, it has a differ-ent meaning.

Florida is a really beautiful and complex state and (Gainesville) fosters a lot of intelligence and compas-sion and incredible manners and incredible decency.ŽLocal artists Carrie and Jesus Martinez painted a Tom Petty Mural at the Sidney Lanier Center, the elementary school Petty attended.

[AMY HARRIS/AP] And below that was a note explaining that many newspaper deliveries just werent being made, because there are a number of the Metropo-lis carrier boys ill with Spanish influenza.ŽTwo days later, Duval County schools were ordered closed. Before the month was over, church services were cancelled and indoor public meetings were outlawed. The Ringling Brothers Circus never got underway, and dance halls and pool rooms shut down. Camp Johnston was put under quarantine. Stores and banks were ordered to cut back on their hours.Furchgotts department store, by request of the Department of Heath, can-celed its 50th anniversary sale, though it promised to hold all sale items until the troubles ended.The health department even asked those grieving for flu victims to hold private funeral services, to keep crowds and the risk of infection down.More than half the citys streetcar operators fell ill. Milk deliveries were cut way back. Just about every business, from ice makers to shipyards, was hurt. Sister Mary Anns Orphanage needed help, badly: Nearly every inmate of the home was a victim, though fortunately there were no fatalities.ŽBrief stories noted the deaths of Mack Tucker, coun-cilman and deputy sheriff, along with prominent doc-tors, business leaders, military officers and leading members of society.Grocer G.D. Perkins took out an ad boasting that the Spanish Flu Hasnt Got Us!Ž Next to that, the ad of W.T. Edwards, An American GrocerŽ at Eighth and Evergreen, said he was just thankful he had recovered: Not as lucky as our competi-tors, Ive been down with the FLU, but now back on the job.ŽEasy fixes must have been tempting in the face of so much suffering. Groves Tasteless Chill Tonic and Cheneys Expectorant prom-ised to be of help to the ill. And taking a yeast cake a day will keep influenza away,Ž the Times-Union said.In the face of the epidemic, people helped others. Red Cross volunteers made thou-sands of masks to wear when out in public, and urgent pleas went out for more volunteer nurses. Soup kitchens sprung up to feed the sick. Southern Bells acting district manager W.S. Henley even got a few volunteer operators to handle some of those many calls.Meanwhile, Gladys Baker of the Metropolis wrote a paean to the ministering angelsŽ of Jacksonville „ its women „ who stepped forward to nurse the sick and keep food supplies going in a city that was falling apart. Jacksonville,Ž she wrote, is indeed proud of her womanhood, who out of the throes of agony, have proved themselves magnifi-cently sublime! Helpless little miteThe newspapers back then didnt spend much time on the details of the heartbreak that must have accompanied so much death. But the intrepid Baker did spin a heartbreaking tale from the Childrens Home Society, of a dad left with four children after his wife died while he too was ill.How, he pleaded, could he take care of them himself, in these tragic straits? And what would become of his youngest, a helpless little mite?Ž She did not yet have a tooth in her head, though, he said, she did have her late mothers eyes, like big, brown pansies „ sorter wilted-like.ŽBy Oct. 11, about 20,000 cases of flu had been reported in the city, health officials estimated. That day Camp Johnston reported 1,032 sick among the 17,000 men there. Forty-two at the camp had died since Sept. 20, including 11 on Oct. 10 alone.By Oct. 15, the city reported 180 flu deaths since the deadly month began. Two days later, the toll climbed to 256. On the 23rd, it was 361.Among the most recent vic-tims was a Pullman checker named Louis Symans, 33. He was followed five hours later by his son Francis, 4.As the month went on, the daily toll went steadily down-ward, and health officials said again that the worst was over. By the 24th, the quarantine at Camp Johnston was lifted and rural schools in the area announced plans to reopen.By the 29th, Jacksonvilles death toll was 423 for the month.A story that day noted that drugstore soda fountains were having trouble finding young men to work; after being closed so long, the employees had gone on to get new jobs. And there were orders that no glasses could be reused at fountains that didnt have sterilizers „ so customers reveled in the sport of drink-ing from the bottle.ŽThe state, tracing the pandemics progress, said the disease showed up first in northern Florida before sweeping south and west. It killed 1,031 Floridians between Oct. 5 and the 27th, officials reported. Jacksonville, with 398 dead during that time, far outpaced Tampas 225 fatalities.The flu would take more victims in the weeks and even months to come. But by the end of October, the worst was indeed over.So on Nov. 5, Furchgotts, as promised, continued with its 50th anniversary sale, which had been postponed on account of the epidemic of influenza.Ž With conditions safe again, the department store promised many sensationalŽ deals for the thrifty shoppers of greater Jacksonville.Repeat the glad tidings to your family and friends,Ž its advertisement said. Get them all enthused.Ž EPIDEMICFrom Page B7

It was disappointing to come so close to winning a region title and fall short, but Laatsch said he felt only pride for what his play-ers accomplished under the circumstances.Our kids have gone through a lot of adversity with the whole town being shook and devastated by what happened,Ž he said. I didnt get in touch with all of them until a few days ago.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, October 24, 2018 C3By Paul NewberryThe Associated PressATLANTA „ Matt Ryan threw a 47-yard touchdown pass to Marvin Hall, Tevin Coleman broke loose on a 30-yard scoring run and the Atlanta Falcons added another chapter to New Yorks miser-able season, beating the Giants 23-20 on Monday night.Ryan completed his final 18 passes and finished 31 of 39 for 379 yards, sending the Giants (1-6) to their fourth straight loss. Giorgio Tavecchio, fill-ing in for injured Atlanta kicker Matt Bryant, sealed the victory for Atlanta (3-4) with the lon-gest field goal of his career from 56 yards.Facing one of the NFLs worst defenses, New York botched its best scoring chance by going for a touchdown on fourth-and-goal from the 1 early in the third quarter. To the surprise of no one who has seen the Giants stumble through the season, Eli Mannings pass for tight end Scott Simonson fell harmlessly to the turf.Manning was sacked four times but still managed to complete 27 of 38 for 399 yards. Odell Beckham hauled in eight passes for 143 yards, his fourth 100-yard receiving game of the season, and Sterling Shepard finished with 167 yards on five receptions.The passing game got little help from the ground attack, however. Rookie Saquon Bar-kley was limited to 43 yards on 14 carries, forcing the Giants to go one-dimensional.Both teams got off to sluggish starts offensively. The Falcons failed to cross midfield on their first three possessions, and the Giants werent much better.Then, suddenly, Atlanta struck for two big plays to grab the lead. Ryan went down the left sideline to tight end Austin Hooper for a 36-yard gain, pushing the Falcons into New York territory for the first time. Then Ryan spotted Hall breaking free down the middle of the field, hitting him perfectly in stride for the touchdown.The teams traded field goals in the final minute of the first half, sending the Falcons to the locker room with a 10-3 lead.Tavecchio, who first con-nected from 40 yards, added a 50-yard kick that extended the lead to 13-6 on the opening play of the fourth quarter.Coleman rumbled for another Atlanta TD without being touched, giving the home team some breathing room before the Giants finally showed some life offensively. Manning com-pleted five passes for 61 yards before Barkley powered over from the 2 with 4:47 remaining for New Yorks first TD of the game. But coach Pat Shurmur decided to go for 2, looking to put his team in position to win with another score.Manning pass for Beckham was knocked away, and the Falcons drove for Tavecchios clinching field goal.The Giants did manage a touchdown with 5 seconds remaining as Manning hooked up with Beckham on a 1-yard scoring play, but only after the quarterback was stuffed on two straight attempts to run it over, burning off most of the scant time on the clock. Injury reportThe Falcons lost another guard when Brandon Fusco went down late in the first half with a right ankle injury.Fusco had to be helped off the field by a pair of trainers, and he was quickly taken to the locker room on a cart.After initially announcing that Fuscos return to the game was questionable, the Falcons declared him out.Atlanta had already lost another starting guard, Andy Levitre, to a season-ending injury.Ben Garland took Fuscos spot on the line.Ryan throws for 379 yards, Falcons beat GiantsAtlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan (2) works against the New York Giants during the second half of an NFL game Monday in Atlanta. The Atlanta Falcons won 23-20. [JOHN AMIS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] lot of my players dont have homes or power or are displaced in other counties, so its going to be very tough to get everybody on the same page. I know the circumstances are tough, but well find a way to get it done and be ready to go.ŽBay finished sixth in the team standings and Arnold was 10th.Mosley 343 „ Noah Zedicker 75, Will Massey 80, Jack Hund-ley 91, Hunter Lark 97, Hayden Ricks 101.Bay 389 „ Mac Chapman 91, JP Harbison 93, Jake Harbison 93, Garrett Nelson 112, Jake Chapman 118.Arnold 438 „ Mitchell Campbell 95, Luke Moskowitz 104, Kaleb Cunningham 112, Mason King 127, Andrew Sexton 148. GOLFFrom Page C1 has quickly become the new normal for all of the areas sports teams. Its been really weird,Ž first-year Arnold coach Madison Wichterman said. There was a time where I wasnt even sure if we would be able to continue. It wasnt my first thought by any means and once things started kind of getting back to somewhat normal, or as normal as it can be with all of this, we made the decision (to play) and Im glad we did because the girls will be able to put an end to the season and not just be left with a lot of what ifs.Ž Mosley coach Michelle Mask, whose home suf-fered extensive damage that she said would take about two months to repair, also was unsure of continuing her teams season, and left it open for her players to decide against going forward when they first met after the storm. We had a practice last week and 10 girls showed up, and we just sat in a circle and hugged each other and cried,Ž she said. I threw it out there to the girls that if they didnt want to play, we could cancel the season. There was no pressure to play. We can just say, OK, we had a great season, but there are more important things to worry about, like having a place to live and being safe. But the girls said they wanted to play, so I said OK. I knew we had to take that first step and at least try to get back to some normalcy.Ž While the Dolphins havent had all of their players at prac-tice, Mask said she expected to have at least 15 of her 16 varsity players at the match. When Mosley has been able to practice in Santa Rosa Beach where Mask is staying, she said that the experience has been therapeutic for herself and her players. When were in there, were playing and we dont have to worry about what were going through and all these kids are playing and laughing, smiling, and forgetting about the chaos and everything theyve lost,Ž she said. Even if we dont get another game, just to be with each other and have each other makes all the difference in the world.Ž Arnold has been practic-ing at Emerald Coast Middle School this week and Wichterman said the energy has been extremely high and that its obvious her players were ready to get back on the court. We were all excited to be in there,Ž she said. The girls are just so excited to be back on the court again. The girls spend all their time together during the season and out of season as well. Its just differ-ent being able to see someone and know theyre OK. We had some conversations before, but its so different just to see them and hug them and start playing again. It was a cool thing to see.Ž If Mosley and Arnold both win, they would face off in the region semifinals Oct. 30. Its difficult to forecast how either team will be able to perform given the circum-stances, with Mask saying she has no ideaŽ what to expect going into the match. Its so hard to say what it will look like just because there are so many emotions and so many things that are bigger than the game of vol-leyball that these girls have to worry about,Ž she said. Im hoping and praying for the best. Theyve been knocked down, but theyre not quitters. We started in July with the dream of making it to the state finals and that dream hasnt changed. They still want it, they just have to fight a little bit harder.Ž DOLPHINSFrom Page C1play another top 10 team (Georgia) in a game with championship ramifica-tions that is drawing ESPNs GameDayŽ and the SEC Networks version of it to Jacksonville this weekend.Its really exciting, espe-cially after last year, turning this thing around and getting back what Floridas known for,Ž sophomore safety Donovan Stiner said Monday. So, were really excited and weve worked really hard for it.(Last year) was pretty difficult. It was emotional. Were just glad to be back. Weve worked really hard to get where we are now. Were really excited and looking forward to this game.ŽLed by new head coach Dan Mullen and his staff, the Gators have put themselves in this position by winning five consecutive games since losing to Kentucky on the second Saturday in September.Since that humbling loss in The Swamp, Florida has won four straight SEC games, including two on the road (Tennessee and Mississippi State) and one at home against the No. 5 team in the nation (LSU).So, here the Gators are, back in the top 10, back in a really big game.Its going to be unreal,Ž junior linebacker Rayshad Jackson said. Its going to be a great game. Itll be a fist-fight the whole time.ŽLast years game was a fist-fight, too, but the Bulldogs were the only ones throwing and landing punches. The Gators seemed lifeless, their minds in a different place. And its understandable.Earlier in the week, then coach Jim McElwain made his claim about death threats, which triggered the athletic department to meet with McElwain and investi-gate the alleged threats.By the end of the week, it was clear McElwains job was in jeopardy.By Saturday morning, the reports started coming out that McElwains agent and the University Athletic Association were negotiating a buyout that would terminate McElwains job.The UF players were well-aware of all of it.Guys in the hotel for pre-game meal were on their phones seeing all the commotion saying Coach Mac was going to be fired,Ž junior wide receiver Josh Hammond said. It definitely was bringing up some confusion and guys were kind of looking around wondering like, Whats really going on? Is he really getting fired? Is he not?He broke us up pre-game meal and let us know that he hadnt heard anything yet and to block everything out. But, still, as a kid, 20, 19, 21-year-olds, just seeing that stuff on Twitter about your coach being fired is a little awkward. It kind of just throws your mind a little bit.It was big for us mentally just kind of taking our focus off of the game. Things were kind of weird from that point forward.Ž Weird „ and one-sided.Less than midway through the first quarter, the Gators were already down 21-0. The final even-tually turned out to be 42-7. McElwain and UF parted ways the following day.It was pretty weird knowing that Coach Mac was going to get fired after this game,Ž Jackson said. His whole mindset, his whole demeanor was different. And it just felt like we werent going to play well because his demeanor wasnt right. We all came to the game like, Man, our coach about to get fired and we cant do nothing about it. ŽPlaying in a big game again did not seem in sight back then. But with a new coach and a new season, it is here.The Gators, obviously, are excited about this opportu-nity, and the changes that have brought them to this point.Last year wasnt so fun for our team, but just coming from then to this year, our records a lot different,Ž quarterback Feleipe Franks said. We went through a coaching change which turned out for the better for us. Just a bunch of different things have changed. Our guys, obviously we love it, and you know were excited for the challenge, and were going to prepare our tails off for the challenge this Saturday.Ž FLORIDAFrom Page C1 from Team Penske in the round of eight. Five spots to Ford drivers left room only for a pair of Toyota drivers, reigning champion Martin Truex Jr. and 2015 winner Kyle Busch, and a lone rep-resentative from Chevrolet in Chase Elliott.But those numbers can also hurt Fords chances, particularly if SHR suddenly fractures and its drivers take a selfish approach during the next three races.Racing teammates is tough,Ž said Alan Gustafson, crew chief for Elliott. They can give each other no quar-ter at all. Thats a hard thing to do. Thats a hard thing to kind of balance. To move on, you have to full throttle, hammer down. If you get into a riff, which is going to happen with your teammate, its a tough situation.ŽGustafson even wondered if SHRs juggernaut will inadvertently help Elliott and the Hendrick Motorsports team, which doesnt have a single Chevrolet ally remaining in the playoffs. But if SHR turns on each other, well, the rest of the field better be ready to pounce.In some ways I think it can be an advantage for us because it is difficult to bal-ance it when youre all kind of infighting against each other,Ž Gustafson said.Theres no infighting yet at SHR, at least not publicly. The four drivers executed perfectly at Talladega Superspeedway two weeks ago by sweeping the front two rows of qualifying and working together to stay in line and hold off traffic for almost the entire race.Had a late caution not sent it to overtime, where Kurt Busch ran out of gas and Harvick had to stop for fuel, SHR cars might have raced each other four-wide for the finish. It was Almirola who got the victory, the first for the No. 10 car that Almirola took over from Danica Patrick this season, and it pushed him into title talk. SHRFrom Page C1

There was a smattering of applause when he got into a white SUV and was whisked away. He was taken to an undis-closed location.The 44-year-old Carruth will be on a nine-month post-release program, according to North Carolina Department of Public Safety spokesman Jerry Higgins. He would need special permission from a case officer to leave the state or the country during that span but is free to go wherever he pleases after nine months.Carruth was found guilty of orchestrating a plot to kill Cherica Adams on Nov. 16, 1999, in Charlotte, North Caro-lina, to avoid paying child support. Adams was shot four times while driving her car but managed to make a 911 call that helped implicate Carruth.Adams went into a coma and died less than a month later after the shooting.The child she was carrying, Chancellor Lee Adams, was delivered by emergency cesarean section but suffers from permanent brain damage and cerebral palsy.Carruth has never admitted guilt in Adams murder, but in a complex 15-page letter to WBTV-TV in Charlotte in February he wrote that I feel responsible for everything that happened. And I just want (Saundra Adams) to know that truly I am sorry for everything.ŽCarruths former attor-ney, David Rudolf, did not immediately return phone calls Monday seeking comment about Carruths release and plans.Last week, Carruth told WSOC-TV in Charlotte in a telephone interview, I just truly want to be forgiven.ŽHe went on to say he was somewhat frightenedŽ about his release, adding that Im nervous just about how Ill be received by the public. I still have to work. I still have to live. I have to exist out there and it just seems like there is so much hate and negativity toward me.Ž Carruth has repeatedly said he wants to have a relationship with his son, who remains in the cus-tody of his grandmother, Saundra Adams, who has raised him since birth. Adams had previously said she would be there when Carruth got out of prison, but she was not present Monday.Carruths arrest on charges of conspiracy and attempted murder nine days after the shoot-ing sent shockwaves throughout the Panthers organization.The team released Carruth and the NFL sus-pended him indefinitely after he fled the Charlotte area after posting $3 million bail and was found by federal authori-ties hiding in the trunk of a car in Tennessee, about 500 miles from Charlotte.Panthers center Frank Garcia played with Carruth for more than two seasons. He said players were stunned when they heard the news of Carruths possible involvement in the murder, about 20 miles from the teams downtown stadium in the affluent section of South Charlotte.Ex-NFL player out of prison after 18 years for murder plotFormer Carolina Panthers NFL player Rae Carruth, center, exits the Sampson Correctional Institution on Monday in Clinton, N.C.

The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below. Mediation is not available. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department’s action may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes.
