They are the 2018 Fall Thunder Beach motorcycle rally, which was to have begun on Wednesday and run through Sunday; the Ironman Florida sports com-petition slated for Nov. 3; and the Emerald Coast Cruisin antique car rally scheduled for Nov. 6-10.We are still not where we can have (special tourist) events yet,Ž Thomas told City Council members during the regular meeting at city hall. The Beach still has too much going onŽ with storm recov-ery efforts.The city plans to resume its fall/winter event sched-ule with the Beach Home for the Holidays event scheduled at Aaron Bessant Park over the Thanksgiving weekend, Thomas said.On paper, the Beach tourism economy appears to be facing a major hit because of the canceled events. In 2017, four events that have been canceled „ Oktoberfest, Thunder Beach, Ironman and Emerald Coast Cruisin „ had a total economic impact of $17 million, said Richard Sanders, Tourist Development Council vice president for sports and special events.

Across the street, dehumidifiers pumped air through tubes into the historic Martin Theatre, its art deco archi-tecture still intact. In every direction, streets were filled with piles of debris shoveled out of damaged buildings.Where some might despair at the sight of the historic downtown that has struggled to revitalize for years, Rigby sees potential.I think it gives everybody a clean slate to fix things back like they want,Ž Rigby said.More than two weeks have passed since Hurri-cane Michael slammed into Panama City and caused widespread damage, includ-ing downtown. Like Rigby, some downtown shop owners plan to reopen soon or already have reopened. But more so than just digging out of the rubble, some busi-ness owners are cautiously optimistic that the destruc-tion could stimulate the downtown redevelopment theyve sought for years.Rigby said she planned to reopen the coffee shop this weekend.People on social media have been cheering us along,Ž Rigby said of her and other downtown businesses. Theyre saying they cant wait to come visit us again, A CLEAN SLATEDebris is removed from Harrison Avenue in downtown Panama City on Thursday after damage from Hurricane Michael.

Many hotels and condomini-ums on the Beach remain booked solid with first responders and residents displaced by the storm. That situation could remain for several months to come, officials said. In addition, the traf-fic volume along Panama City Beach Parkway remains well above average with the daily flow of first responder vehicles and supplies passing through the city to the hard-hit areas of Panama City and eastern Bay County.The financial impact on the Panama City Beach economy and municipal budget is expected to be high, but not unbearable, City Manager Mario Gisbert said. Emergency overtime for city workers during the two-week pay period spanning the storm spiked from $561,000 to $1 million, but the city has adequate reserves to cover the costs pending application to the Federal Emergency Management Agency for relief, said Debbie Ward, the citys public information officer.Gisbert noted that some city facilities closed in the storms aftermath soon will reopen: Frank Brown Park will open today and The Boys and Girls Club at Frank Brown Park will open Monday. However, regular fall sports events at the park will not resume until Nov. 23. EVENTSFrom Page A1which underscores the importance of all of us sticking together.ŽRigby notes that her other downtown businesses, The Maddie Hatter, an upscale childrens clothing store, and Tom Foolery and Co., a womens clothing shop, sustained heavier damage and will be closed for some time.We might open Tom Foolery in a temporary location,Ž Rigby said.Jim Hayden, owner of The Bagel Maker on West Fourth Street, said the hurricane sucked off part of his business roof and water flowed inside. But thanks to the help of staff and his wife, the bagel shop reopened from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday.We have an amazing staff that stayed informed and my wife facilitated the cleaning,Ž Hayden said. Weve been making product and we found ways to get potable water and ice.Ž Hayden said that while the hurricane caused severe damage, it also had basically washed downtown and freed it for potential redevelopment.Hopefully with an influx of money and influence, we can take what was damaged and rebuild it to make it better,Ž Hayden said. I just hope nobody goes out of business in the meantime.ŽMatt Wagner, vice president of revitalization programs for Main Street America, said disasters like a hurricane can help spur development. Main Street America is a non-profit that helps revitalize downtowns across the country.When faced with a disaster, it coalesces a community ƒ what you see is a much greater sense of importance for downtowns,Ž Wagner said. Downtowns have historically been the heart of pride for communities.ŽWagner said other downtowns have revitalized themselves after similar disasters, such as the one in Greensburg, Kansas, destroyed by a tornado in 2007.After a lot of thoughtful planning, the downtown is heralded as one of the most green areas in the U.S.,Ž Wagner said.Joe Kelley, owner of the Funky Mermaid restaurant downtown, said he hoped busi-nesses wouldnt relocate because of the disaster.I hope it just wipes the slate clean and gets some finances in here,Ž Kelley said of the hurricane. Downtown has a lot of unique features. ƒ I just want to see downtown thrive again.ŽKelley reopened his downtown restaurant on Monday. The business had a limited menu of pizza and chili dogs for lunch on Tuesday. I was lucky and didnt have much damage,Ž he said. Im getting a break of circumstances. ƒ Ive had a lot construction people coming in and people whove been tarp-ing stuff.ŽAt Main Street Antiques downtown Tuesday morning, owner Liane Harding ran dehu-midifiers in her shop and cleaned some merchandise of mold. The hurricane blew water into her store and knocked off her buildings facade and sign. With the cleaning equipment though, all the merchandise was saved, Harding said. Harding said she hopes to reopen within the next two weeks. Even more so, she hopes downtown will improve because of the hurricane.Its something all of us have been talking about,Ž Harding said of her and other downtown business owners. That the only good thing to come out of this nightmare is to get everything bigger and better than it was.ŽHarding said she plans to do her part by first replacing her buildings facade.I always hated that facade I had,Ž Harding said with a laugh. This is a chance for change.Ž DOWNTOWNFrom Page A1since dawn as the city and county escalate their collection efforts to keep up with the mounting piles of tree limbs and hurricane rubble along roadsides. The city and county have contracted with Crowder Gulf, a disaster recovery and debris management specialist that has 70 vehicles on the road and still is ramping up.Wed be here for years if we tried to do it ourselves,Ž said Panama City Public Works Director Neil Fravel. People in the Cove would never get out.ŽLike all recovery efforts, debris removal requires a phased approach. The first phase was local municipalities trying to clear the roads the best they could. The second phase was the pushŽ when contractors like Crowder Gulf arrived and literally pushed all the debris to the edges of the road to fully clear the way. And now, the third phase is the first pickup, which in the wake of Hurricane Michael is a mammoth undertaking.In the five days after the push ended, the contractors cleared the equivalent of one years worth of normal yard waste pickup in Panama City, about 100,000 cubic yards.And thats only the beginning. Shane Daugherty, the citys environmental services manager, estimated the total could end up being a staggering 2.5 million to 3 million cubic yards.The first pass, Fravel said, is going to the worstŽ and the lon-gest as crews deal with piles 10 to 12 feet high. It could take up to four weeks before the trucks make it to every house in the city.Officials are estimat-ing its going to take at least three passes before the majority of residents debris is hauled away. Residents can help smooth the process by separat-ing the debris into four types of piles „ house-hold items, yard debris, construction items and appliances „ but officials also recognize many residents dont have space for four piles.Get the vegetative debris out first,Ž Fravel said. Then make room for everything else.ŽThe scale of the proj-ect is unprecedented for the region. Officials are estimating they will need to open three additional temporary dump sites just in the city, one on U.S. 98, one at Mulberry Avenue and one at the old airport. The Mulberry Avenue site will be for construction debris, the others for vegetation.And its not as simple as just dumping the loads. Each pile of debris that comes in is carefully monitored, with GPS coordinates and other information tracked by a separate company to make sure the city and county will get their FEMA reimbursements. FEMA will fully reimburse the county for five days of pickup and partially reimburse the munici-palities for the rest.In the meantime, the pile at the Redwood Avenue site has grown at a rate that frankly stuns Fravel, who has been with the city through multiple hurricanes. Soon, he said, workers will have to start feeding the trees through chippers or risk the pile taking over the work space.What will happen to the mulched bits is still being decided, Fravel said. In the past, the mulch has been sold to energy plants to burn for power, but this time theres so much of it that Fravel isnt sure there will be a market for it all.But thats a problem for down the line, right now the focus is on the 70 trucks on the road, making sure all the documentation is there to get the maximum FEMA reimbursements and clearing the piles from in front of peoples homes.

[KATIE LANDECK/THE NEWS HERALD] By Juana SummersThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ With just two weeks to go until the critical midterm elections, an overwhelming majority of Americans say the United States is greatly divided, according to an Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll. Few Amer-icans believe those stark divisions will get better anytime soon.The newly released survey found that more than 8 in 10 Americans think the country is greatly divided about important values. Just 20 percent of Americans say they think the country will become less divided over the next few years, and 39 percent think things will get worse. A strong majority of Americans, 77 percent, say they are dissatisfied with the state of politics in the country.The poll was conducted Oct. 11-14 in the final sprint to the midterm elections, in which President Donald Trump has been rallying his supporters to turn out to vote in November. Overall, 59 percent of Americans disapprove of how Trump, a Republican, is handling his job as presi-dent, while 40 percent of Americans approve.How Americans view Trump divides along partisan lines, according to the poll. While 83 percent of Republicans approve of how Trump is handling his job, 92 percent of Democrats and 61 percent of independents say they do not approve.According to the poll, nearly half of Americans say they arent hearing enough from campaigns about the issues that matter most to them. Fifty-four percent of Democrats and 44 percent of Republicans say they are hearing too little about key issues.Overall, top issues for Americans include health care, education, economic growth, Social Security and crime, each of which was called very important by at least three-quarters of Americans.Fifty-eight percent of Americans say they are dissatisfied with the way things are going in the country, compared with 25 percent who say they are satisfied. But Ameri-cans are slightly more likely to be satisfied with the way things are going in their state or in their local community.Majorities of Americans also say that they are dissatisfied with the gap between the rich and the poor, race relations and environmental conditions. But there are partisan splits. Eighty-three percent of Democrats are dissatis-fied with the gap between the wealthy and the poor, compared with 43 percent of Republicans. Of envi-ronmental conditions, 75 percent of Democrats and 32 percent of Republicans say they are dissatisfied. And while 77 percent of Democrats say theyre dissatisfied with race relations, about 50 percent of Republicans say the same.Democrats and Repub-licans also are divided on how important they con-sider each of those issues to be. About 8 in 10 Dem-ocrats but no more than a third of Republicans call income inequality, environmental issues or racism very important.Poll: Most Americans see a sharply divided nation Employee Sue Creel helps clean up C&G Sporting Goods in downtown Panama City on Thursday.

** A4 Saturday, October 27, 2018 | The News Herald NATION & WORLDEDITORS NOTE: First in a two-part series on hospi-tals that detain patients if they cannot pay their bills.By Maria ChengThe Associated PressNAIROBI, Kenya „ Doc-tors at Nairobis Kenyatta National Hospital have told Robert Wanyonyi theres nothing more they can do for him. Yet more than a year after he first arrived, shot and paralyzed in a robbery, the ex-shop-keeper remains trapped in the hospital.Because Wanyonyi cannot pay his bill of nearly 4 million Kenyan shillings ($39,570), administrators are refusing to let him leave his fourth-floor bed.At Kenyatta National Hospital and at an aston-ishing number of hospitals around the world, if you dont pay up, you dont go home.The hospitals often ille-gally detain patients long after they should be medi-cally discharged, using armed guards, locked doors and even chains to hold those who have not settled their accounts. Even death does not guarantee release: Kenyan hospitals and morgues are holding hundreds of bodies until families can pay their loved ones bills, government officials say.An Associated Press investigation has found evidence of hospital imprisonments in more than 30 countries world-wide, according to hospital records, patient lists and interviews with dozens of doctors, nurses, health academics, patients and administrators. The detentions were found in countries including the Philippines, India, China, Thailand, Lithuania, Bul-garia, Bolivia and Iran. Of more than 20 hospitals visited by the AP in Congo, only one did not detain patients.Whats striking about this issue is that the more we look for this, the more we find it,Ž said Dr. Ashish Jha, director of the Harvard Global Health Institute. Its probably hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people, that this affects worldwide.ŽDuring several August visits to Kenyatta National Hospital „ a major medi-cal institution designated a Center of Excellence by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention „ the AP witnessed armed guards in military fatigues standing watch over patients. Detainees slept on bedsheets on the floor in cordoned-off rooms. Guards prevented one worried father from seeing his detained toddler.Kenyas ministry of health and Kenyatta canceled several scheduled interviews with the AP and declined to respond to repeated requests for comment.Health experts decry hospital imprisonment as a human rights violation. Yet the United Nations, U.S. and international health agencies, donors and charities have all remained silent while pumping billions of dollars into these countries to support their splintered health systems or to fight outbreaks of diseases including AIDS and malaria.People know patients are being held prisoner, but they probably think they have bigger battles in public health to fight, so they just have to let this go,Ž said Sophie Harman, a global health expert at Queen Mary University of London.Hospitals often acknowledge detaining patients isnt profitable, but many say it can some-times result in a partial payment and serves as a deterrent.Festus Njuguna, an oncologist at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret, about 300 kilometres northwest of Nairobi, said the institution regularly detains children with cancer who have finished their treatment, but whose parents cannot pay.Its not a very good feeling for the doctors and nurses who have treated these patients, to see them kept like this,Ž Njuguna said.Still, many officials openly defend the practice.We cant just let people leave if they dont pay,Ž said Leedy NyemboMugalu, administrator of Congos Katuba Reference Hospital. He said holding patients wasnt an issue of human rights, but simply a way to conduct business: No one ever comes back to pay their bill a month or two later.ŽGlobal health agencies and companies that oper-ate where patients are held hostage often have very little to say about it.The CDC provides about $1.5 million every year to Kenyatta National Hospital and Pumwani Maternity Hospital, help-ing to cover treatment costs for patients with HIV and tuberculosis, among other programs. The CDC declined to comment on whether it was aware that patients were regularly detained at the two hos-pitals or if it condones the practice.At many hospitals worldwide, you dont pay, you cant leaveMargaret Oliele, a former detained patient, poses for a portrait in her home in Nairobi, Kenya. [BRAM JANSSEN/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Ricardo Alonso-ZaldivarThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Less than two weeks before the midterm elections, President Donald Trump is focusing on the cost of prescription drugs.And Trump is linking the prices Americans complain about to one of his longstanding grievances: foreign countries the president says are taking advantage of U.S. research breakthroughs.Health care is high among voters election-year concerns. Trump has promised sweeping action to attack drug prices, both as president and when he running for the White House.He was scheduled to give a speech on drug prices Thursday at the Health and Human Services department.In advance of that speech, HHS released a report that found U.S. prices for the top drugs administered in doctors offices are nearly twice as high as in foreign countries. The list includes many cancer drugs. Medicare pays directly for them under its Part BŽ coverage for outpatient care.On Twitter, HHS Secretary Alex Azar said the current international pricing system has put America in last place.Ž In most other economically advanced countries, governments take a direct role in setting drug prices. Thats something the United States traditionally has avoided, and Republicans in particular are loath to do.Azar said Medicare spent about $8 billion more for drugs in the study than if the prices paid by the program were scaled to international prices. Any push to dramatically lower prices here would meet resistance not only from drug-makers but from doctors, two of the most powerful lobbies.Trump has harshly criticized the pharmaceutical industry, once asserting that the companies were getting away with murder,Ž a comment that sent pharmaceutical stocks tumbling. But its largely been business as usual for drugmakers even as Trump has predicted massiveŽ voluntary price cuts.A recent Associated Press analysis of prices for brandname drugs found far more increases than cuts in the first seven months of this year. The analysis found 96 price hikes for every price cut.

[MANUEL BALCE CENETA/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Mark StevensonThe Associated PressMAPASTEPEC, Mexico „ Little by little, sickness, fear and police harassment are whittling down the migrant caravan making its way to the U.S. border, with many of the 4,000 to 5,000 migrants who resumed their journey Thurs-day complaining of exhaustion.The group, many with chil-dren and even pushing toddlers in strollers, departed Mapaste-pec at dawn with more than 1,000 miles still to go before they reach the U.S. border.They have advanced just 95 miles as the crow flies since thousands burst across Mex-icos southernmost border six days earlier.With the migrants still weeks, if not months, from reaching the U.S. border, the U.S. administration was planning to send 800 or more troops to the southern border at the direction of President Donald Trump, who has been stoking fears about illegal immigration ahead of the Nov. 6 midterm elections.Defense Secretary Jim Mattis was expected to sign an order as early as Thursday authorizing the additional troops to support the Border Patrol, according to a U.S. official, who was not autho-rized to speak publicly about the details because the details had not yet been finalized and spoke on condition of anonymity.On Thursday, the long column of migrants stretched for more than a mile as they left the town square in Mapastepac in far southern Mexico, where many spent the night. The municipality of some 45,000 people, along with churches and volunteers, offered some medicine and donated water, clothing baby formula and baby bottles.As they reached the highway, families with young children packed sidewalks asking for donations and rides to the next stop, Pijijiapan, about 25 miles further ahead.Melkin Claros, 34, was traveling with his 7-year old son and a teenage nephew and remained steadfast in his goal. Everyones objec-tive is to arrive (in the United States),Ž he said, adding that he planned to request asylum because gangs made it impos-sible to live in Honduras.Its true you risk your life a lot here, but we risk more in our country.ŽStill, Mexican officials say nearly 1,700 have dropped out of the caravan to apply for asylum in Mexico, and a few hundred have accepted gov-ernment offers to bus them back to their home countries.Carlos Roberto Hernandez, of Yoro province in Honduras, dropped out after developing a rumbling cough during the scorching daytime heat and evening rains.We got hit by rain, and ever since then Ive had a cold,Ž Hernandez said. Asked Wednesday if he would make another attempt to reach the U.S., he said emphatically: No. Im going to make my life in Honduras.ŽSickness, fear in Mexico whittle away at caravanCentral American migrants traveling with a caravan to the U.S. make their way Thursday to Pijijiapan, Mexico.

** A8 Saturday, October 27, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Tamara Lush The Associated PressPANAMA CITY „ More than two weeks after the powerful eyewall of Hurri-cane Michael passed over Bay County, Mark Ward wonders when the power will work again. And the sewer. And the water.Weve been living out of coolers. Weve been grilling out.Ž He points to a red cooler and two grills in front of his mobile home. He has to shout to be heard over the buzz of a generator.Although electric, water and sewer service were restored to Panama City res-idents on Wednesday, those like Ward who live in the rural parts of Bay County still lack basic services.Its a struggle. You feel frustrated because our local government seems to care more about the tourism industry than the hard-working people,Ž says the 49-year-old. You go off some of these dirt roads that are still unpaved, these houses are crushed. These people have no resources.ŽCounty spokeswoman Val-erie Sale says she understands why people in rural areas feel left behind.When you live that far away from a municipal area, theres a feeling of isolation,Ž she said. Theres no question its a challenge to reach those folks. Under normal circum-stances it takes 45 minutes to an hour to get to some of those northern parts of the county.ŽBay County is known for its sugar-sand beaches. Panama City Beach, which made it through relatively unscathed from the storm, is a mecca for spring breakers each year. Mexico Beach, another stunning community on the Gulf of Mexico, was almost obliterated by the storm. Stark, stunning visuals of the destruction there have been a staple of post-hurricane news coverage.But the rural folks in Bay County say they feel invisible. About 180,000 people live in the county, and according to the Census, 14 percent of them live in poverty.Wheres the help?Ž asks Ward.Hes one of the lucky ones in the Bayou George neighborhood. He has insurance. His mobile home was mostly spared. He has a generator, and he rigged a hand pump for the well.His next-door neighbors didnt fare as well: Michael stripped their mobile home to a wood skeleton. They clung to debris, but finally ran for safety to Wards home during the eye of the storm with a cat and her newborn kittens.Ive got seven people in my house right now. Three bedrooms, two baths,Ž said Ward. Theyve been with me since the storm.ŽFor the first week, he drove across the state line into Alabama for gas to run the generator. Gas has been easier to get locally in recent days, but lines are still long, he said. Because one of the people staying with him has diabetes, her insulin must remain cold, which is why they need to run the generator so much.Wards property beside the road is a tangle of oak trees, twisted metal and downed power lines. Without flinch-ing, he steps over and under the wires as if they were rope.Just tuck up under here,Ž he says, ducking under a thick power line.Sale, the county spokeswoman, says the Red Cross has roving emergency response vehicles, and a fire station in nearby Bayou George is a distribution point where groups have been dropping household items, food and tarps.Ward says the neighbors have been relying more on each other.He checks in frequently with a group of twentysomething men and women who live across the street in a mobile home on a few acres.Youre good on your MREs?Ž he asked them on a recent day. If you want water, you know where my pump is. Theres also a bathing station there. Bring a washrag. Theres bars of soap.ŽYeah, Ill probably use that, but my dads got a running creek he said we could go use,Ž said Ronald Lauricella, who owns the mobile home on the property.Their yard is a mishmash of downed limbs, piled-up garbage and two tents. Two dogs and a small kitten roam the property.Lauricella is staying in one tent and keeping food in another.The inside of his mobile home is another explosion of chaos. The front door and his bedroom window were blown out from the hurricanes winds. Water soaked the carpets and drywall.Theres bugs everywhere,Ž he said. It smells. You can smell the mold growing.ŽLauricella, 19, has no prop-erty insurance. Hes in between jobs, and hopes to make it to an interview at a restaurant this week if he can scrape up enough money for gas. He figures its his only hope to recover from the storm.No ones really sending help our way,Ž Lauricella said.Folks in rural parts of Panhandle ask: Wheres the help?Ronald Lauricella cradles a kitten in his front yard in Bay County, Fla., on Tuesday. The rural Bay County resident says some on the outskirts of the cities arent getting needed services like electricity as fast as the populated areas.

** A10 Saturday, October 27, 2018 | The News Herald ANOTHER VIEWFloridas K-12 public schools are among the best in the nation. Find that surprising? Well, if so, you might be mired in the misguided way we have been taught to think about education progress, according to Stan Liebowitz, an economics professor at the University of Texas at Dallas, and Matthew Kelly, a UTD research fellow. They have authored a new report analyzing education data, which is featured in the November issue of the libertarian magazine Reason, and their study should cause us to rethink what we think of our schools and our states education policies. Liebowitz and Kelly looked at the best known graders of state education systems and how they have led the public to believe the highest-quality state educational systems tend to be in big-spending states in the Northeast or Upper Midwest.Ž The narrative, they write, then becomes: These places apparently honor and respect teachers, while Southern states inexplicably abhor them. But the cheapskates in cheap states get their just desserts: Sophisticated northern jurisdictions grow ever smarter, while stingy conservative backwaters sink into ever-lower depths of ignorance. The solution is obvious: Pay up or your kids will suffer.Ž Well, to Liebowitz and Kelly, the obviousŽ is really not all that obvious. Childrenin the low-cost Sun Belt are not suffering academically because of low spending. Liebowitz and Kelly fault the grading methodology: lumping test scores in with metrics that distract from true student performance,Ž such as education spending, graduation rates and pre-K enrollment, which have little to do with what actually occurs in the classroom. So, Liebowitz and Kelly zeroed in ontrue measures of student progress: results of standardized tests for math, reading and science taken by fourthand eighth-graders under the National Assessment of Education Progress, commonly known as The Nations Report Card.Ž Furthermore, unlike the graders, they sifted the test data demographically so they could compare, for example, how black students in Florida scored on the NAEP relative to black students in Minnesota. The demographic component is critical because the ranking lobby favors predominantly white states that spend big, yet dont face the challenge of educating a large pool of students with varying ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, as found in Florida, Texas, Arizona and California. Liebowitz and Kelly suggest predominantly white states skew traditional rankings because white students tend to do better on standardized tests. Thus, as they wrote in their actual study, conventional state rankingsŽ simply become little more than a proxy for a jurisdictions demography.Ž Ultimately, Liebowitz and Kelly compared test results with state education spending, as adjusted for each states cost of living. Generally, when combining test results, spending and demographics, Sun Belt states routinely outperform their northern counterparts. Theyre getting the most bang for their education buck,Ž the researchers note. A version of this editorial first appeared in The Ledger, a News Herald sister paper with GateHouse Media.Floridas low-cost schools have high valueThirteen states „ Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia „ have enacted laws to combat what is seen as price gouging in the wake of natural disasters. Price gouging is legally defined as charging 10 to 25 percent more for something than you charged for it during the month before an emergency. Sellers convicted of price gouging face prison terms and fines. Price gouging in the wake of natural disasters is often seen as evil exploitation by sellers to rip off desperate customers. Lets hold off on that conclusion until after you give thought to some very important questions. First lets see what we can agree upon. When a natural disaster occurs or is anticipated, supply conditions change. There is going to be less of what people want and need. Under such conditions, what actions are consistent with the public good? My answer is that people should voluntarily use less of everything and waste nothing. That would include economizing on water, gasoline, food and anything else necessary for survival. Take the case of a hurricane like Florence. Lets assume evacuation 200 miles or so inland would guarantee safety for North Carolinians. One familys car has three-quarters of a tank of gas, more than enough to drive to safety. Another familys car has less than a quarter-tank of gas, which is not enough to drive away from danger. We can multiply this scenario by tens of thousands of familiesin their predicament. Heres my question: Who should forgo purchasing gas in the storm-threatened area? My answer would be all those people who have enough gas to drive to safety. By not purchasing gas, theyd make more gas available for those who really need the gas in order to drive to safety. We also might ask how considerate and caring it would be to their fellow North Carolinians who desperately need gas for people who have enough to evacuate to purchase gas just to top off their tanks. If people wont consider the needs of their fellow man voluntarily, the North Carolina attorney general could station government officials at each gasoline station to determine who should be permitted to purchase gas. Another method would be for the governor, mayors and church and community leaders to admonish North Carolinians to purchase gasoline only if they really need it. That way, plenty of gas would be available for those with nearly empty tanks. What I think would make gas available to those who really need it are rising prices. Suppose the pre-hurricane price of gas was $2.60 a gallon. As the hurricane approaches, dealers could let the price rise to $4 a gallon. That would give families who have enough gas to evacuate incentive to voluntarily forgo purchasing gasoline. Their voluntary decision would make more gas available for people who desperately need it. By the way, gas available at $4 a gallon seems more preferable than gas stations shut down because they have sold out of gas at $2.60 a gallon. You might reluctantly agree that allowing prices to rise during a natural disaster helps allocate resources, but thats not the intention of sellers who raise prices. Higher prices create incentives for suppliers of all kinds of goods to pitch in to help to restore peoples lives. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economicsat George Mason University and Syndicated Columnist with Creators Syndicate.Price gouging during a natural disaster Tim Thompson | Publisher Will Glover | Managing Editor Mike Cazalas | Editor PANAMA CITY VIEWPOINTS Walter WilliamsMy son Gideon will not be trick-ortreating this year. Its not because of any fear of ghosties and ghoulies, mind you. We decided last year his advancing age meant 2017 would be the last hurrah for the door-to-door begging. Oh, he still loves the holiday and will be reprising his fortune-teller routine at a Halloween In The Park event, but I dont want him to be one of those teens (and post-teens) who just cant outgrow hogging the treats meant for tykes. Heres a rule of thumb: if youre old enough to have heard Johnny Cash sing at Folsom Prison, you and your buddies are probably too old to look cute going from house to house collecting fun-size Snickers bars in a black-and-whitestriped jailbird costume. Anyway, I mentioned fear earlier because while researching goblins and such, I ran across the term samhainophobiaŽ„ the irrational fear of Halloween. Samhainophobia, of course, is named for Halloweens precursor Samhain, the sacred festival that marked the end of the Celtic calendar year. Can you imagine a Celtic New Years Eve? (Should old acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind/ Should old acquaintance be forgot „ hey, that Druid bared his behind!Ž) Samhainophobia is closely linked to phasmophobia (fear of ghosts), wiccaphobia (fear of witchcraft), nyctophobia (fear of darkness) and balldropophobia (fear of Ryan Seacrest crashing your Celtic New Years Eve celebration). At least Halloween gives us one night to watch little ghosts running around in nice clean sheets instead of politicians airing dirty laundry. Sorry. I used to suffer from claustrophobia myself, so Illtry to empathize with samhainophobes and the inexplicable levels of discomfort they endure at this time of year. I guess I had a sheltered childhood. The neighborhoods I trick-or-treated in were so lame that the creepy old hermits cleverly tried stuffing the candy bars and taffy apples with Norelco electric shavers. At least the X-ray technicians got to snooze on the job. I realize todays weird weather patterns can lead to anxiety at this season. You know, like when the merest hint of an early snow threatens vital supply lines. (Theres a run on toilet paper! We cant t.p. any of the houses down the block. Maybe we can vandalize the neighbors homes with milk and bread.Ž) I dont see classic monsters being able to cause a lot of trouble nowadays. If Dracula took his son out for a simple drink of blood, social justice warriors would swoop down on them and harass them into submission. (Youre associated with October„ the same month that contains Columbus Day. How can you look at yourselves in the mirror? No, thats not your pal Wolfman coming to the rescue. Thats part of our organization howling at the moon because of Dwight Eisenhower winning the 1952 election.Ž) No, the real dangers of Halloween 2018 include situations more like unscrupulous doctors chasing skeletons down the street and yelling, Here! Take this opioid prescription! Its good for what ails you!Ž Perhaps the greatest Halloween-related fear afflicts trivia buffs who know that the first jacko-lanterns were actually made from turnips„ and that thenext generation of jack-o-lanterns might very well be made from KALE! Be afraid. Be very afraid. I hear the trends a-comin / Theyre rollin round the bend / And I aint had no real food / Since I dont know when ...Ž Danny Tyree is a syndicated columnist for Cagle Cartoons Inc.Do you have an irrational fear of Halloween?

The school district is in the middle of two mega charity drives to address the urgent needs of their 28,000 students and 3,500 teachers. The most pressing need, according to Sharon Michalik, director of communications, is school supplies „ pencils, crayons, backpacks, notebooks, etc. „ which will be distributed to students directly at each school.Basically, whatever each student had in their backpack at the start of August needs to be replaced,Ž Michalik said.Parents do not need to worry about trying to go out and forage for crayons and paper and notebooks,Ž she added.Supplies are being collected at West Bay Elementary Donations pouring in for Bay School District studentsDonations are being sorted at West Bay Elementary School.

While shes there, she picks up a hot meal for her and her mother.This has always been home to me,Ž Foster said.Despite being in the poorer part of Bay County, many people still count Millville as home, a community that was briefly a city in the early 20th cen-tury before becoming part of Panama City proper. At one point a booming area, Millville has stagnated during the past couple of decades, home to mostly working-class residents.As people make their way to and from Daffin for food, supplies or a hot shower, smoke can be seen wafting out of the WestRock paper mill, a symbol for both its namesake and how the industry shaped the area in the early days.While areas across Bay County like Lynn Haven have received media and governmental attention, smaller communities and towns like Millville and nearby Springfield have remained largely ignored. At least, its residents feel that way.I dont hear anyone talking about us,Ž Paul Weeks said.It has been mostly volunteer-run projects that have catered to these communities. On this day, a group of volunteers drove out from Santa Rosa Beach to offer food and supplies. The effort is the byproduct of Hannah Martin, a broker associate at The Premier Property Group, and Jessica Proffitt Bracken, president of Proffitt PR.Martin was in New Orleans when Hurricane Michael hit. Martin, who has been involved with philanthropic efforts in the past, said she was dev-astated as she saw news reports of how the area had been ravaged by Michael.It was truly the most devastating thing I have ever seen in my life,Ž Martin said. Within a couple of days, Martin and Proffitt were raising funds and support to go out to different com-munities to help people. Largely through social media, the duo was able to quickly raise thousands of dollars and amassed dozens of volunteers eager to help. The Sonder Project, the charitable arm of 360 Blue Properties, offered its support within a week or so, feeding thou-sands in the process.We see this as neighbors helping neighbors,Ž Sonder Project CEP Chad Zibelman said.One such neighbor who was out and about Thurs-day was Carrie Campbell as she handed out hamburg-ers and hot dogs to people coming into the tent. While some took enough for lunch, others took three or four boxes of food at a time, knowing they would need it for later.I felt like just donating supplies was not enough anymore,Ž the Santa Rosa Beach resident said. I had to be here.ŽNear the two tents Martin and Proffitts volunteers are working, the Red Cross is set up nearby.

The sites will be staffed by bus drivers and Michalik said they hope to fill most orders in the two weeks before school starts, but the sites will run through the first week of school for those families who cannot get to the sites in time.When school returns, district officials will be extremely flexibleŽ with the dress codes to take into account that many students had their clothes destroyed and many families do not have the money „ or the ability because of the high number of closed businesses „ to purchase more.The district also has started a GoFundMe account, managed by the Bay Education Foundation, that Michalik said will give the district the flexibility to purchase any supplies they need.

** The News Herald | Saturday, October 27, 2018 B3By Michael Balsamo, Eric Tucker and Colleen LongThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Federal authorities took a man into custody Friday in Florida in connection with the mail-bomb scare that ear-lier widened to 12 suspicious packages, the FBI and Justice Department said.The man was identified by law enforcement officials as Cesar Sayoc, 56, of Aventura, Florida. He was arrested at an auto parts store in the nearby city of Plantation.Court records show Sayoc has a history of arrests.Law enforcement officers were seen on television examining a white van, its windows covered with an assortment of stickers, in the city of Plantation in the Miami area. Authorities cov-ered the vehicle with a blue tarp and took it away on the back of a flatbed truck.The stickers included images of American flags and what appeared to be logos of the Republican National Committee and CNN, though the writing surrounding those images was unclear.President Donald Trump said he expected to speak about the investigation at a youth summit on Friday.The development came amid a coast-to-coast manhunt for the person responsible for a series of explosive devices addressed to Democrats including former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton.Law enforcement officials said they had intercepted a dozen packages in states across the country. None had exploded, and it wasn't immediately clear if they were intended to cause physical harm or simply sow fear and anxiety.Earlier Friday, authori-ties said suspicious packages addressed to New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and former National Intelligence Director James Clapper „ both similar to those containing pipe bombs sent to other prominent critics of President Donald Trump„ had been intercepted.Investigators believe the mailings were staggered. The U.S. Postal Service searched their facilities 48 hours ago and the most recent pack-ages didn't turn up. Officials don't think they were sitting in the system without being spotted. They were working to determine for sure. The officials spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation.The FBI said the package to Booker was intercepted in Florida. The one discovered at a Manhattan postal facil-ity was addressed to Clapper at CNN's address. An earlier package had been sent to former Obama CIA Direc-tor John Brennan via CNN in New York.Attorney General Jeff Ses-sions said Friday the Justice Department was dedicating every available resource to the investigation and I can tell you this: We will find the person or persons responsible. We will bring them to justice.ŽMan detained in Florida in mail-bomb caseThis frame grab from video provided by WPLG-TV shows a van parked in Plantation, Fla., on Friday, that federal agents and police of“ cers have been examining in connection with package bombs that were sent to high-pro“ le critics of President Donald Trump. The van has several stickers on the windows, including American ” ags, decals with logos and text. [WPLG-TV VIA AP] By Lloyd Dunkelberger The News Service of FloridaJACKSONVILLE „ In a clear signal that the final trajectory of his campaign will be shaped by his alli-ance with President Donald Trump, Republican guber-natorial candidate Ron DeSantis was joined Thurs-day by Vice President Mike Pence at a Jacksonville rally.Pence, accompanied by his wife, Karen, and White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, assured the former congressman and a crowd of about 500 supporters at the Prime Osborn Convention Center that DeSantis will have Trumps full support.Im here to tell you. It wont be any great surprise to you. Ron DeSantis has been one of the strongest advocates for the Trump agenda in the Congress of the United States. And President Donald Trump and I support him 100 percent,Ž Pence said.That support will be ampli-fied by a Trump rally that will be held in Lee County on Wednesday, less than a week before the Nov. 6 election.DeSantis, who lives outside Jacksonville in Ponte Vedra Beach and served three terms in Congress before stepping down last month, used Trumps support to propel himself to a victory over the better-funded Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam in the Aug. 28 Republican pri-mary for governor.And now in a generalelection campaign against Democrat Andrew Gillum, DeSantis is emphasizing his support from the presi-dent in an apparent effort to energize Republican voters and draw them to the polls.He is also doubling down on his attacks on Gillum, raising questions about the Tallahassee mayor accepting a pricey ticket to attend the Broadway musical Hamil-tonŽ from an undercover FBI agent who Gillum believed to be a developer looking to invest in Tallahassee. The issue was at the center of the candidates final acrimoni-ous debate Wednesday night at Broward College.He didnt pay for it. He lied to the people of Florida,Ž DeSantis told the Jacksonville crowd. Hes got all these excuses. This issue is about integrity. Its not about black or white. Its about right or wrong.ŽGillum, who is trying to become the first African-American elected as Floridas governor, has suggested race is playing an issue in DeSantis attacks. He said he got the ticket from his brother.In a Facebook post Tuesday, Gillum said DeSantis was suggesting somehow I havent deserved what Ive gotten „ Im unethical, par-ticipate in illegal and illicit activities, I mean you name it.ŽThe goal is obviously to use my candidacy as a way to reinforce, frankly, stereo-types about black men,Ž he said.But both DeSantis and Pence slammed Gillum on a host of other issues, including his support for dismantling the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and his plan to raise Floridas corporate income taxes by $1 billion to pay for teacher salaries.We will never abolish ICE,Ž Pence said, as long as Trump is president, Gov. Rick Scott is elected to the U.S. Senate and DeSantis is governor. Well build a wall and we will fix this broken immigration system once and for all.ŽPence and DeSantis also criticized Gillum for his support of the Dream Defenders group, which DeSantis characterized as a radicalŽ organization that aims to undermine law enforcement.Pence called Gillum just one more voice of the resistance.ŽHis politics, his policies look more like Bernie Sanders Vermont than the Sunshine State,Ž Pence said.Pence joined DeSantis in Jacksonville after touring damage from Hurricane Michael in the Panhandle with Scott, who is running against Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson. Pence said the Trump administration is fully committed to help-ing the state in its rebuilding efforts, including repairing Tyndall Air Force Base near Panama City.Pence also spoke briefly about pipe bombs that were sent this week to several prominent critics of Trump, including 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.We condemn these attempted acts of violence in the strongest possible terms,Ž Pence said, adding the investigation is the FBIs highest priorityŽ and that those responsible will be brought to justice.ŽDeSantis was also joined at the rally by his wife Casey, a Jacksonville television personality, and his running mate, state Rep. Jeanette Nunez of Miami. U.S. Rep. John Rutherford of Jacksonville and U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho of Gainesville also spoke in support of DeSantis campaign.Vice President Pence makes campaign pitch for DeSantisFlorida Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis waves to the crowd at his Jacksonville, Fla., campaign rally where he was joined Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen Pence Thursday. [BOB SELF/FLORIDA TIMES-UNION VIA AP] GateHouse Media Florida staff reportGAINESVILLE „ Scientists at the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences North Florida Research and Educa-tion Center „ particularly its Marianna facility „ may take a while to fully recover their research after it was damaged by Hurricane Michael, according to administrators.In Marianna, five irrigation systems were turned over and damaged, according to Glen Aiken, director of the UF/IFAS North Florida REC. The centers perimeter fence took hits from falling trees and limbs, as well. Buildings at Marianna sustained damage to roofs, siding and doors, a press release from UF/IFAS said.The Florida Foundation Seed Producers „ adjacent to the main Marianna operation „ suffered extensive damage to its peanut facility. After the storm, they moved out hun-dreds of tons of seed peanuts to preserve their quality.At the Beef Unit and overall animal operation at Mari-anna, miles of electric fencing fell victim to numerous trees blown down on them, which makes it tough to keep the cows in their pastures, said Jerry Fankhauser, assistant director of the Florida Agri-cultural Experiment Station. The bull test station is also challenged the bulls cant be put back into their designated paddocks.These losses likely will impact current and future field research, in addition to planned research efforts in early 2019, Fankhauser and Aiken said.Aiken said he hopes to meet with center faculty Thursday or Friday to get a full report on the damage to each of their research projects.Growing seasons are messed up for everybody,Ž he said.NFRECs Quincy facility also sustained damage to greenhouses and a shed in addition to tree limbs on the ground.Aiken credits his faculty and staff for coming through a rough situation with their heads held high, the release said. After NFREC staff got past their personal hardships, employees did their part to return the center to a sense of normalcy.Five employees from the farm crew at the UF/IFAS West Florida REC in Jay helped clear trees from fence lines and replaced fences that were destroyed. Two farm crew members from the Range Cattle Research and Education Center in Ona, Florida, helped replace fences.The North Florida RECSuwannee Valley provided labor and equipment, as well. Electricians and other staff-ers from the Plant Science Research and Education Unit in Citra and the UF campus in Gainesville have helped get generator power and assisted with overall cleanup, accord-ing to the release.It is amazing how much progress was made in just a few days with the outside assistance we received,Ž Aiken said. Last Monday, the job looked almost too overwhelming for there to be an end; however, on Friday, there was enough progress made to make the faculty and staff see some distant light.ŽUF/IFAS helps hard-hit North Florida centersUF/IFAS North Florida Research and Education Center facilities were damaged during Hurricane Michael.

** B6 Saturday, October 27, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Christine SextonThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ Less than two weeks before Election Day, Republican gubernatorial nominee Ron DeSantis has released a plan that he promises would help transform Floridas health-care system.After weeks of criticism over his lack of a health-care plan, DeSantis posted the proposal online Wednesday shortly before his final debate with Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum. The plan calls for people to have the right to buy the health care they want; use price-transparency tools to shop for care; and get rebates from insurers when patient choices save money.The plan said DeSantis would maintain quality care by resisting any effort to ration health careŽ in Tallahassee.Floridians have more choices in picking out their cell phone plans than their health insurance plans. Every day in the grocery store, we make decisions about what we want to buy, weighing price, necessity, and quality, and deciding whats right for us,Ž the proposal said. But, when it comes to something as important as health care, we have fewer choices and less information.ŽDeSantis and Gillum have tangled in two debates this week about health care.Gillum strongly supports expanding Medicaid eligibility as allowed under the federal Affordable Care Act. Gillum also has expressed support for Medicare for all,Ž a single-payer system championed by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sand-ers that would require federal approval.DeSantis, who resigned his N ortheast Florida congressional seat last month to focus on the gubernatorial race, opposes Medicaid expansion and has lambasted Gillum over sup-porting Medicare for all.ŽWhile in Congress, DeSantis was a member of the House Freedom Caucus, a group of conservatives who did not support Presi-dent Donald Trumps efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. DeSantis and others in the group maintained at the time that the efforts didnt go far enough.Some of the ideas cited in DeSantis new plan already have been percolating in the GOP-controlled Florida Legislature, including a House proposal that would have mandated insurers and health-maintenance organi-zations share savings with consumers who shopped for care. The 2017 legislation, which ultimately did not pass, would have opened up insurers for penalties or lawsuits if they failed to comply.The DeSantis plans also calls for expanding what is known as direct primary care, a concept that the Leg-islature approved this year. Direct primary care involves contractual arrangements between doctors and patients for treatment, at least partially cutting out the role of insurers. Its not clear how DeSantis would want the plans expanded.Democrats, who have attacked DeSantis for his opposition to the Afford-able Care Act, immediately blasted his new proposal. In part, they said it would allow the sale of what they consider junkŽ health-care plans, or those that dont meet minimum benefit requirements of the Afford-able Care Act.Moreover, Democrats argued the DeSantis pro-posal would not help people with pre-existing medical conditions. A popular feature of the Affordable Care Act provides protections in purchasing insurance for people with prior health conditions.According to the DeSan-tis proposal, the Republican gubernatorial candidate would work to ensure hard-to-insure Floridians with significant health needs have access to coverageŽ through market reforms that will encourage people to buy policies before they get sick.ŽJohanna Cervone, a Gillum spokeswoman, criticized the plan.After 268 days without a health-care plan, Ron DeSantis finally released a sham of a proposal that puts special interests over the health of Floridians and denies coverage to people with pre-existing conditions,Ž Cervone said in a statement.Florida Republican Attor-ney General Pam Bondi has joined 19 other GOP attorneys general in a federal lawsuit that, if successful, would overturn the pre-existing protections contained in federal law.According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, Florida has 3.1 million non-elderly people with pre-existing conditions.Central to the DeSantis health-care proposal is the idea that costs must be con-tained to expand access.DeSantis health plan calls for more patient choicesRepublican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis talks during a CNN debate in Tampa on Sunday.

** The News Herald | Saturday, October 27, 2018 B7By Brendan FarringtonThe Associated PressCENTURY „ This little town on the Alabama border isnt the type of place where Florida Dem-ocrats tend to stop when looking for votes.It has a population of 1,786, and registered Republicans outnumber Democrats more than 2 to 1. But Florida Demo-cratic Party Chairwoman Terrie Rizzo stopped here recently as part of an effort to reach out to rural communities that tend to overwhelmingly support Republicans.Even Century Mayor Henry Hawkins, a Democrat, seemed a bit surprised he had visitors.Im glad you found your way to Century,Ž he said as Rizzo sat down with a group of fewer than 20 people. This is a place that most people dont know nothing about.ŽThe town is where Lawton Chiles started a 1,003-mile walk across Florida on his way to win-ning a U.S. Senate seat in 1970. Chiles also is the last Democrat to serve as governor of Florida. He was elected to his second and final term in 1994.But a lot has changed since Walkin LawtonŽ made his walk. Back then, Democrats dominated Florida politics, and the Florida Panhan-dle supported Democratic candidates. These days, rural areas like the west-ern Panhandle firmly back the GOP.In the more recent past, Democrats have focused on getting votes out of their South Florida stronghold „ the Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach areas „ while being competitive along the Interstate 4 corridor that cuts through the middle of the state from Daytona Beach to Tampa.The party said it hired 47 organizers in the west-ern Panhandle alone, an area where they typically dont have any organizers. Party spokeswoman Caroline Rowland said the effort is paying off, with an increase as much as 6.5 percent in voteby-mail ballots in those counties. The party also is in communication with local officials and grassroots volunteers to help make sure people can reach early voting sites in areas devastated by Hur-ricane Michael.Although Barack Obama carried Florida in the 2008 and 2012 presidential contests, Democrats have had little success in midterm elections and are hoping to break their losing streak with a new focus on areas where they havent mounted much of a fight in more than two decades.The thinking is that even if they dont carry these rural counties, they can cut the margin of defeat enough to be more competitive statewide.Weve lost three of the last four elections by an average of 80,000 votes. Its important to be in every county, and it will make a difference. There are Democrats here. Were offering them a reason to come out and vote,Ž Rizzo said after the meeting.Its a strategy embraced by Democratic nominee for governor and Tallahas-see Mayor Andrew Gillum, who is in a tight race with Republican former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis. Gillum said Democrats cant just rely on winning big South Florida counties.Weve got to stop treating the race for the governor as if its the Elec-toral College. You dont win one county and lose another „ pick up Miami-Dade and Broward and Palm Beach and lose the rest,Ž Gillum said in an interview.Instead, he said, the way to win the state is by losing less in some of these red areas that well never wholly get. But we dont need to wholly get them; we need to decrease the margins.ŽStill, Dan Smith, a University of Florida political science professor, questioned the strategy of using the partys limited resources to go after small blocks of votes when there still is a turnout problem with minorities and younger voters in large urban areas.If I was putting my money into it, thats where I would be focusing,Ž Smith said. Its not that those (rural) votes are less valuable, theres just a lot less of them.ŽFlorida Republican Party chairman Blaise Ingoglia said he isnt worried about losing ground in rural areas.The Republican Party of Florida has had historic success in flipping these rural counties from Democrat to Republican in recent years, mostly because voters in these areas continue to walk away from todays Demo-crat party,Ž Ingoglia said in a statement. Just because the Democrats can fill a room with a bunch of radi-cal activists doesnt mean theyre making inroads.ŽRizzo lives in Palm Beach County, about 600 miles away from Century. She never had been to the town, which is surrounded by cotton fields. The small crowd at the meeting fea-tured local candidates and party activists, and one of the main topics was the shutdown of public schools that forced children to be bused as much as 20 miles away.The mayor said it helps to have the party pay attention to an area he said has been largely ignored by politicians in Tallahassee.Now our citizens will know that people are con-cerned about them. Were not pushed to the curb,Ž Hawkins said. At least people cant say nobody came by to see them.ŽThats the message Century resident Tawana Jones is trying to spread through her community, especially among African-Americans.Unfortunately it is very difficult to get them to vote and realize the importance of voting and that they actually can make a difference,Ž Jones, 37, said after the meeting.

** B8 Saturday, October 27, 2018 | The News Herald FAITH Stephanie Nusbaum, Faith editor, 850-747-5073 Calendar submissions: pcnhnews@pcnh.comMuseum of the Bible removes ve artifacts a er experts nd they are not authenticMarisa Lati The Washington PostWASHINGTON„ The Museum of the Bible„ a prominent new institution off the Mall in Washington, D.C.,„ announced Monday that it has removed five prized items once thought to be historical Dead Sea Scrolls after concluding that the fragments may not be authentic.The pieces were examined by the Germany-based firm BAM, which tested them and concluded that they might not truly be parts of the ancient manuscripts found in the Qumran Caves of Israels West Bank.If questions arise, then we want to answer those questions in an objective and honest way,Ž Jeffrey Kloha, the museums chief curatorial officer, told The Post. In an earlier state-ment, Kloha called the process an opportunity for the museum to show its commitment to transparency.ŽThe $500 million museum faced skeptics before it opened because it was chaired and funded largely by the conservative Christian family that owns Hobby Lobby, the mega-chain at the center of a divi-sive Supreme Court case about how far religious liberty rights go. Found-ers said the museum was meant to be a scholarly, inclusive look at the Bible, yet its founding board was almost entirely evangelical. It has drawn visitors of all faiths since it opened.The museum, just south of the Mall, sent the five fragments to BAM for analysis in April 2017 after previous studies raised questions about its fragments. Kipp Davis of Trinity Western University has been doing research on the fragments which is funded by the museum. He told its officials that at least seven of the frag-ments probably were modern forgeries,Ž according to a statement by the museum.The five fragments now believed to have charac-teristics inconsistent with ancient originŽ have been displayed at the Museum of the Bible since it opened in November. Labels on the exhibit since it opened have warned guests that some scholars were skep-tical of the fragments authenticity, the museum said in its statement.Three other fragments have replaced the five that might not be real, and the museum said it plans to conduct more research about their authenticity. The museum has 16 frag-ments, including the five just removed.The Dead Sea Scrolls are the oldest version of the Hebrew Bible and offer insight into what the sacred text looked like at the turn of the era, said Joel Baden, a profes-sor of the Hebrew Bible at Yale Divinity School, and a critic of the museum. The scrolls were created between the early 1st century B.C. and 70 A.D. Most were written in Hebrew, while a few were written in Aramaic and Greek.What they reveal is the biblical canon wasnt fixed, that there were multiple editions of biblical books floating around simultaneously and that there was this great discrepancy among Jewish communities about which laws to follow,Ž Baden said.A collector purchased the inauthentic fragments beginning in 2009 and donated them to the museum over the following years, Kloha said. He declined to say how much money the collector paid for the fragments, but Baden said fragments can sell for half a million dollars to $1 million apiece.Kloha said museum curators thought the fragments were likely to be real when they received the donations, which had not yet been studied by academics. The museum quickly gave researchers access to the fragments to com-pare handwriting styles and the layout of the writing, Kloha said.Museum admits some of its Dead Sea Scrolls are fakeHis faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night nor the arrow that flies by day. Psalm 91:4-5 ESV Last Monday I posted an insta of the weather forecast for the next for days: Partly Sunny, Partly Sunny, Hurricane, Partly Sunny.Ž So here I am on day four, very much partly sunny; perhaps the most pleasant day of weather weve had all year, mocking the gap in that partly sunny we call Michael. I originally wrote this column 1 day after The Storm, but it didnt make it to the paper, because the internet was down. So Im revising this 2 weeks later. Looking back brings perspective. Now, my mind drifts to the Casting Crowns song, I Will Praise you in the StormŽ and Ryan Stevensons, In the Eye of the Storm.Ž The eye went right over us. The eye of peace mocked the raging storm of all storms around it we will tell our grandkids about. Few of us imagined on the 12th that the national news would the next day headline what had happen here. To us. But there we were, on the major networks, opening with a tragedy of total devastation upon Tyndall AFB, a drowned Apalachicola, a wiped out Mexico Beach, gutted schools, demolished hangars full of boats, destroyed restaurants, businesses, homes, our shopping places parks. As a former military man, I obeyed orders and got out of dodge. Then it hit. Like most, I couldnt make contact with anyone. Eventually I found a few with connectivity and began to get local updates. I finally just got the first eye-witness of my house taken by a good Samaritan, there I saw through the window, in the dark, what looked like a huge tree branch ƒ poking through the roof and into the kitchen. Little doubt most of you saw similar. Of this one thing I am certain, there were 1000s in this fix right, and still hundreds asking How? How will we get this through this? Heck, where will we sleep? What will we drink? Where will we use the restroom? ƒŽ Then I started to contemplate. I began to see it unfold of me, people coming out of their homes, and coming together. Strangers unannounced. Angel upon angel. Call after call of people wanting to help. People telling me to hold on, they are coming. A line of 10 EMS vehicles passed by, sirens screaming, headed south to help; an endless line of lineman trucks, headed south to help. While driving back to my church today I saw no less than three people getting hugs. Three difference scenes, but the same scene. Friends and neighbors encouraging each other. Comforting. Even while thinking our case is hopeless, that all is lost, God shows Gods face: In our first responders. In our newŽ neighbor. In the friend and the stranger who calls to say, Im here for you.Ž and God booms out the answer, Here I am!Ž As I was writing this I get a call from a trooper up in the sticks near Ebro saying he has my custodian with his truck broke down. While Im culling my brain for whom I could send, it appeared: a wreckerŽ showed up, and the driver says, I got him, he can come with me.Ž This recovery wont be easy. The answers arent simple. But God comes through, God shines in us and through us to each other. Long time relationships will be mended and new ones will be made as people reset priorities, realizing, its just stuff. My beautiful mossy oaks are down, but more beautiful ones are being raised right now, around us. Let God use you as a source of hope. Through this tragedy, as are uniting, recovering, healing, rebuilding, from the Ashes, we will rise. Isaiah 61:3 ESV To grant to those who mourn in Zion„ to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.

[AP PHOTO/JACQUELYN MARTIN, FILE] Special to the Daily NewsCOCONUT CREEK … Food For The Poor is working with trusted partners to provide disaster relief to families suffering from Hurricane Michael in Northwest Florida.The charity has received two tractor-trailer loads of relief items from Matthew 25: Ministries, including food, water, personal hygiene products, blankets, cleaning supplies and paper products, and one tractor-trailer load of bleach from Gleaning For The World.The goods will be distributed by Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida at St. Dominics Catholic Church and St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, both in Panama City, and St. Annes Catholic Church, in Marianna, to those most impacted by the hurricane.We want to respond to the immediate needs of families who are recovering from this powerful hurricane,Ž said Robin Mahfood, president/CEO of Food For The Poor. We are all neighbors, regardless of our locations, especially in this time of need.ŽGabe Tischler, emergency management specialist for the Florida Catholic Conference, said Catholic Charities is grateful for Food For The Poor and its partners to help address the immediate needs of families who are hurting in the Panhandle.As with all disasters, we cant do it alone,Ž Tischler said. Partner-ships like the one with Food For The Poor are essential for us to suc-ceed and reach the most vulnerable populations and providing them essential supplies they simply dont have the funds to purchase. Basic lifesaving supplies will be needed for the next several weeks.ŽWhile Food For The Poors mission primarily is to serve internationally, the charity has responded in the past to catastrophic disasters in the United States. In September, Food For The Poor and Matthew 25: Ministries teamed up with Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Raleigh, N.C., to help residents affected by Hur-ricane Florence. Last year, the charity and Gleaning For The World worked together to send water to Puerto Rico in the after-math of Hurricane Maria.Working with Catholic Charities, Matthew 25: Ministries and Glean-ing For The World to respond to Hurricane Michael will help us better fulfill our mission to serve and comfort those who are in desperate need in times of disaster,Ž said Food For The Poor Executive Director Angel Aloma. Although the primary focus of our work remains in developing countries where we serve where there are no safety nets, this will allow us to serve our brothers and sisters in the Florida Panhandle who are suffering.ŽHurricane Michael made landfall Oct. 10 near Mexico Beach, east of Panama City, as a Cat-egory 4 storm with winds of 155 mph. The hurricane has killed at least 39 people across Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia, according to the Associated Press. Of those, 29 are in Florida.Food for the Poor responds to Michael


** The News Herald | Saturday, October 27, 2018 C1By Ronald BlumThe Associated PressBOSTON „ The San Gabriel Mountains shimmering in the distance will be a welcome sight for the Los Angeles Dodgers after two chilly, failed nights at Fenway Park.No team has overcome a 2-0 World Series deficit in 22 years, but that is the tall task the Dodgers face after crum-bling before the 37-foot-high Green Monster.Its going to be warmer, and hopefully our bats get hot, too,Ž Cody Bellinger said after Wednesday nights 4-2 defeat to the Boston Red Sox.No wonder they were California Dreamin about Thursdays flight home.Used to the balmy breezes at home and usually hospita-ble weather in the NL West, Los Angeles hadnt started a game this year in a temperature below 58. Facing a 53-degree temperature at the start of the opener, the Dodgers lost 8-4. It was just 46 in the first inning for Game 2, and the Dodgers bats were cold again „ their last 16 hitters retired in order.This is the first time weve played in obviously weather like this „ San Francisco a little bit, but nothing like this,Ž Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said before the game. So its an adjustment, and thats part of the home-field advantage and especially being in the bullpen, where you have a little heater, but still have to kind of get hot and stay hot. Its more of a challenge.ŽRyan Madson was unusually open about how out of sorts the Dodgers were on late October nights in the northeast.Last night in the bullpen, we had a couple of heaters Dodgers go cold in Boston, then fall behind 20 to Red SoxLos Angeles Dodgers out“ elder Chris Taylor waits for a pitcher change during the eighth inning of Game 2 of the World Series against the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday in Boston. [DAVID J. PHILLIP/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] SPORTS NCAAF | C2-3COLLEGE ACTIONSee previews for todays ACC/SEC games, including FSU vs. Clemson and Florida vs. Georgia By Kristie RiekenThe Associated PressHOUSTON „ Deshaun Watson matched his career high with five touchdown passes to lead the Houston Texans to their fifth straight victory, 42-23 over the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night.The Texans (5-3) have left their 0-3 start behind with their longest single-season winning streak since reeling off six victories in a row in 2012.Watson threw touchdown passes of 13, 2, 73, 49 and 2 yards to give him 34 career scoring passes to move ahead of Dan Marino (32) for second-most through in NFL history after 15 games.Miamis Brock Osweiler, who had one tough season in Houston after signing a $72 million contract in 2016, threw for 241 yards with an interception in his third straight start in place of injured starter Ryan Tannehill.Kenyan Drake had a Watson throws 5 TDs as Texans beat DolphinsBy Graham Hall CorrespondentBy now, much of Floridas 42-7 loss to Georgia in 2017 has been covered ad nauseum „ although new details continue to emerge in the year since Jim McElwains departure. The revelation Monday that McElwain addressed the team to discuss his job security just prior to last seasons loss to the Dawgs came as a shock to many, but it did fit the narrative surrounding McElwains tenure.In preparation for Saturdays top-10 showdown in Jackson-ville, the Gators are singing a wildly different tune: this season, the coaching staff has frequently put Florida in position to be successful.The Gators need to score just more than three points to exceed their total points scored in the entire 2017 season, and the offensive resurgence has the skill position players sing-ing the praises of Dan Mullen and his coaching staff.That guy there is a genius,Ž junior wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland said of Mullen. He knows when to the call plays at the right time.ŽPrior to the much-needed bye week, the Gators racked up 576 yards of offense at Vander-bilt in a 37-27 comeback win, giving Florida its third-highest total amount of yards since the 2010 season in the process. The Gators also recorded their fifth game this season of 200 or more rushing yards after having just eight such games in the three seasons prior to Mul-lens arrival. While the early 18-point deficit at Vanderbilt may have shaken the confidence of the Florida faithful, the team gained confidence in turning the tide and capturing a win on the backs of the offense.

Theyll surely need it with No. 2 Clem-son in Tallahassee.Florida State (4-3, 2-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) has won three of its past four games after a dreadful start under first-year coach Willie Taggart that had some fans wonder-ing if another dark, freefall was ahead for the former powerhouse program.Akers said his teams 38-17 win over Wake Forest last week was a breakthrough for him after a twotouchdown performance „ one of them on a 58-yard burst.He said hes ready to build on that against the Tigers (7-0, 4-0).It just makes me want more,Ž Akers said. A weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

ITSPARTY TIME,AGAINFORFIRSTTIMEINYEARS,GEORGIAVS. FLORIDAHASNATIONALRELEVANCE GeorgiarunningbackElijahHoly“eld(13) divesintotheendzoneforatouchdown asVanderbiltsafetyLaDariusWiley (5)defendsOct.6inAthens,Ga.[JOHN BAZEMORE/THEASSOCIATEDPRESS] The Associated PressSHANGHAI „ Patrick Reed had a Ryder Cup hed like to forget and spent three weeks at home in Texas preparing to finish the year strong.He was at his best Thursday in the HSBC Champions.Even in blustery conditions, Reed putted for birdie on every hole at Sheshan International and closed out his bogeyfree round with a 25-foot birdie putt for an 8-under 64, giving him a two-shot lead over Tony Finau and Xander Schauffele.It felt really good, because if you can go out and shoot rounds like that in these kind of conditions, you know youre going to have confidence when the wind dies down and there are perfect conditions out there,Ž Reed said.Schauffele also managed a bogey-free round in wind strong enough to be a two-club difference at times. He saved par on the final hole at No. 9 from the right rough with an approach that nar-rowly cleared the water into a patch of fairway short of the green, a pitch-and-run to 10 feet and another solid putt.Matt Fitzpatrick had five straight birdies to overcome a rough start and post a 67.Brooks Koepka, in his debut at No. 1 in the world, didnt deliver much excite-ment. He had 16 pars, one bogey and one birdie for a 72. He was stunned when his second shot in the par-5 18th spun off the front of the green and into the water, forcing him to scramble for par at the turn instead of an easy birdie or better.I felt like I played good enough to shoot 4or 5-under par,Ž Koepka said. It was those momentumbuilding shots.ŽReed was last seen win-ning a meaningless singles match at Le Golf National after Europe was well on its way to victory. The last he was heard from was a tele-phone interview with The New York Times an hour after Europe won, blam-ing Jordan Spieth for them not playing together in the Ryder Cup and U.S. captain Jim Furyk for leaving Reed on the bench twice during the week.Reed opens with 64 to take lead at HSBC Champions


** touchdown run and touch-down reception for the Dolphins (4-4). They lost for the second straight week.Rookie Jordan Thomas caught the first two touch-down passes of his career, DeAndre Hopkins had 82 yards receiving and two scores and Will Fuller added 124-yards receiving and a touchdown.Texans running back Lamar Miller, who grew up in Miami and spent his first four seasons with the Dolphins, had 133 yards rushing and a touchdown for his second straight 100-yard game.Houston led by 8 when Watson threw a 49-yard touchdown pass to Hopkins on the first play of the fourth quarter to make it 35-20.Watson found the speedy Fuller in front of the defense for a 73-yard touchdown that left Houston up 28-17 late in the third quarter. It was the longest touchdown pass of Watsons career and the longest reception of Fullers. Fuller has caught 11 touchdown passes in 11 career games with Watson.The Dolphins used a 41-yard field goal to cut the lead to 28-20 with less than a minute left in the third quarter. That score came after a drive featur-ing a crazy 46-yard pass by Osweiler He threw the ball to Jakeem Grant, who lost it after being hit by two Texans defenders, but it sailed down the field and into the hands of DeVante Parker for the big gain.

Etienne has 14 rushing TDs this season, which is tied for most in the FBS with Florida Atlantics Devin Singletary.Some other things to watch when No. 2 Clem-son plays at Florida State:CLEMSON MOTIVATIONTigers coach Dabo Swinney drove home the point all week that despite Florida States early struggles, the Seminoles are dangerous, talented and capable of playing with the Tigers. He also made sure his players knew Clemson had never won two straight games at Florida State. Thats something weve thought about,Ž Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins said. LAWRENCES TIMEClemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence looked poised and polished in leading the Tigers to the win over North Carolina State. Lawrence, the long-haired, strongarmed freshman, threw for a career best 308 yards in his third college start. Lawrence expects to build on that showing at Florida State. CLOSE CALLFlorida State quarterback Deondre Francois recalled the shootout with Clemson two years ago where the Tigers rallied for a 37-34 victory. The Seminoles had a chance to answer after Clemsons go-ahead TD with 2:06 to go, but Francois said the team made too many mistakes and couldnt execute on the final drive. That just keeps replaying in my head,Ž he said. FSUFrom Page C1Mullens arrival pay immediate dividends havent shied away from discussing his nearly immediate impact, while also throwing some slight shade at the previous regime in the process.Hes an offensive guru, man, thats what I call him. Hes a great guy calling plays. I mean, he always has us ready. Last year there was a couple times, like, defenses were calling out our plays,Ž junior running back Lamical Perine said. So they cant really do that now because we have them so off bal-ance, and its something that we added to our game with Dan Mullen coming in.ŽThe redshirt junior in UFs backfield, Jordan Scarlett, concurred that the production has instilled confidence in a team that had more than a fair share of doubters heading into the season. And if that confidence helped spark the Gators to 290 rushing yards against Vanderbilt „ the programs most since racking up a whopping 414 rushing yards against Georgia in 2014 „ then Florida is striv-ing to do anything it can to say confident.I think were starting, as a whole team now, just the whole offense, just believing in what we can do.The offensive line is sticking together, work-ing together and were working together with them in sync,Ž Scarlett said. GATORSFrom Page C1going,Ž he said before Game 2. It was warm out there, but to get up and move around. I didnt feel as gummy as usual when its 75, 80 degrees. So Im going to make that adjustment tonight, move around a little bit more. Im going to tell the guys who didnt pitch last night, just move around a little bit more than usual, move your knee joints. But maybe theyre young and they dont feel it.ŽMadsons problem was the lack of movement on his pitches, as well as a changeup he t hrew for a wild pitch in Game 1. Brought in to relieve Hyun-Jin Ryu and protect a 2-1 lead with the bases loaded and two outs in the fifth a night later, he walked Steve Pearce and gave up a two-run single to J.D. Martinez before throwing a single offspeed pitch.The balls not going where I want it. Last night it was pulling down to the left, and tonight it was high to the right,Ž Madson said .Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt was annoyed at the conditions experienced by his reliev-ers in a bullpen just in front of the right field bleachers.Brutal. Pretty brutal,Ž he told Sports Illustrated. What I dont understand is why baseball allows it. Youve got the rubber right there and people literally standing over you.ŽFenways frenzied fans benefit the Red Sox, a big-league best 57-24 at home during the regular season and 8-1 in the World Series since 2004.They live baseball 24 hours, seven days a week,Ž said Bo ston manager Alex Cora, who played for the Dodgers from 1998-04 and for the Red Sox from 2005-08. They were into every pitch. Two strikes, they stood up. Madson came in and he was wild, and they were screaming and they were loud. Sometimes we take them for granted, honestly.Ž DODGERSFrom Page C1 DOLPHINSFrom Page C1

** The News Herald | Saturday, October 27, 2018 C7DEAR ABBY: A month and a half ago, my boyfriend of five years proposed. We are happy and excited. Most of the wedding party are my friends from college, who are like a family to me. They have also grown very close to my fiance. One friend, Eden,Ž defines herself as a goth.Ž She wears dark lipstick, dark makeup and usually wears all black „ lace, fishnets, etc. Her casual wear isnt all that out of place. However, when she dresses up, the goth comes out in full force „ parasol, thighhigh boots, over-the-top stuff (at least to me). Shes invited to our wedding, and Im concerned that she may go overboard with her wardrobe for the event. I do not wish to stifle her style or sense of self, but the guests will be mostly family and its a formal event. Is there a polite way to mention this to her and ask her to tone it down a bit? I dont want to hurt her feelings or appear to be stuck up, however I am sure she will be in many of the photos. „ POLITE FRIEND IN PENNSYLVANIADEAR FRIEND: If there will be a wedding party and you have a maid of honor, the responsibility of exp laining the dress codeŽ to Eden should fall to her „ for the reasons you mentioned. Whether Eden takes offense is anybodys guess, but at least the message wont come directly from you. If she chooses to ignore the dress code and come as she is,Ž focus on your happiness and do not let it ruin your day. As for the pictures, put her in the back. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.DEAR ABBYFriends goth fashion would stand out at formal wedding DIVERSIONSTrivia FunŽ with Wilson Casey, Guinness World Record Holder from Woodruff, S.C., is published in more than 500 newspapers across the country.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) „ It's better not to get too deep into why people behave as they do. It could have something to do with you, but likely not. You won't regret staying within your own boundaries and letting others do the same. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) „ You know someone really likes you when that person tries to be an all-around imp roved and heightened version around you. And when it's you doing this, it's a fair indication that you're the one smitten. GEMINI (May 21-June 21) „ Stop putting it off! (And don't pretend like you don't know what this horoscope is about.) Not to live the life you want to live is an abuse of the present. CANCER (June 22-July 22) „ Whether or not you feel that you've been adequately loved, you are able to offer this to others. The big question is if you can you give it to yourself. Not everyone capable of selfnurturing. Hopefully you are. It will be essential to growth. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) „ Communication gets tricky. If no one cares to try harder, conversation might devolve into people droning on about what they know instead people connecting with one another. You can steer it into better outcomes. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) „ Though other value systems may different from yours, that doesn't make them wrong. Stars illuminate your humanitarian instincts. And people are attracted to your instinct for tolerance and inclusion. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) „ You came here to learn. So did they, although they might not be as in touch with their original intent. Embrace imperfection and open yourself to the lesson. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) „ Inconvenient happenings can be fortuitous and seemingly lucky happenings can turn out to be a major pain. So don't be quick to judge. What happens will be pretty funny regardless of the ultimate outcome. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) „ You sometimes question what people want from you, and this is only smart. You don't have to be a cynic to be on guard against the darker inclinations of human nature. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) „ Blood is thicker than gossip. When it comes to your family, you're “ ercely protective regardless of whether they are in the right or not. And, if necessary, they would be similarly protective of you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) „ Pretending to be con“ dent isn't the same as being con“ dent. But the people who act like they have it all together don't fool you. You'd much rather see the con“ dence that comes from admitting the struggle. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) „ Thoughts have power, so take control before they take control of you. And don't be surprised if your feelings are all over the place today. Ecstasy, jealousy, agony and boredom could all happen in the span of an hour.HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS
