TheNewsSun By PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ Commissioners did a quick transfer of funds Tuesday from the reserve to the Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce for this years school resource of“cers. The Board of County Commission transferred $290,197 to Sheriff Paul Blackmans agency for the 2018-19 school year. Blackman said the funds will pay for vehicles and associated equipment, like radios and in-car laptop computers, for the extra school resource deputies. Commissioner Don Elwell expressed concern, after already voting in favor of the transfer, that he would have a con”ict of interest, given that he is the marketing director for Alan Jay Automotive Group, a major local vendor. Blackman told him the major vehicle purchase contract has not gone to bid yet. I think youre good,Ž Blackman said. Outside the meeting, he told the Highlands News-Sun that hes already purchased “ve of the initial vehicles he needs: four from Coggin Automotive Group in Jacksonville and one from Bill Jarrett Ford in Avon Park. He plans to get at least “ve more, for now. I could use 30,Ž Blackman said. The $290,197 was the amount the county pledged to contribute to the unfunded mandate of more deputies/police of“cers in schools as part of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act. It was approximately the same as the amount given at the end of July „ $286,525 „ just for salaries for the extra school resource deputies. At that time, the county was trying to balance an unruly budget for Fiscal Year 2018-19 under the same millage rate as this “scal year „ which they left unchanged. From the Safe Schools program, commissioners cut $145,000 of their funding, contingent on the town of Lake Placid paying in $75,000, the School Board of Highlands County paying $70,000 and the city of Avon Park still paying $100,000. Sebring Police Department already covers County transfers $290K to sheriffReserve funds to buy SRO cars, equipment BLACKMAN By MARC VALEROSTAFF WRITERAVON PARK „ After four previous pretrial conferences were either continued or cancelled, the criminal case of former School Board of Highlands County teacher Kevin Dewberry is headed toward a “fth pretrial conference scheduled Nov. 14. After initially being represented by a Tampa law “rm, Dewberry has had two changes in the counsel representing him on charges that include four counts of lewd/lascivious behavior with a victim between the ages of 12 and 16. Concerning the previous pretrial conferences „ the April 18 conference was continued, the June 21 conference was cancelled, the Aug. 22 conference was continued and the Sept. 18 conference was continued. Assistant State Attorney Steve Houchin said every time a new attorney comes in, they tell the judge they are new on the case and they need a continuance to get up to speed on it. There is not much new from the State Attorneys Of“ce on the case, he said, but, some lab reports have come in. A trial date is not listed on the court docket. The Nov. 14 pretrial conference will have Judge Peter Estrada presiding, according to the court docket. Dewberry, a former Avon Park Middle School teacher and basketball coach, offered a plea of not guiltyŽ on all charges at his arraignment in March at the Highlands County Courthouse. He was terminated from the School Board of Highlands County in early April. The student victim in the lewd/lascivious behavior case told authorities that she and Dewberry began a relationship in 2017. Dewberry remains in the Highlands County Jail with bond set at $400,000 on the charges of four counts of lewd/lascivious behavior with a victim between the ages of 12 and 16, and the bond set at $550,000 on subsequent charges of 55 counts of possession of child pornography.Dewberry case delayed by attorney changes DEWBERRY By MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ Hurricane Irma left devastation and destruction in her path when she hit Highlands County last September, but homeowners can avoid costly repairs by using materials that are more ”ood and water resistant and by making sure work done on their homes meets Florida building codes. Highlands County Building Of“cial Eric Longshore said, The “rst thing is to hire a licensed contractor, and make sure that whoever does the work pulls a permit, so we can inspect it. If the work is done to the Florida building code, you have a better chance of your home surviving a hurricane. If its permitted and inspected, it meets Florida building code. Florida building code is designed for ”ood and water resistance.Ž People who are not using licensed contractors have had problems with their roofs, Longshore said. Some of them are leaking.Ž Homeowners who wish to do the work themselves can pull their own permits and the inspectors will examine the work, making sure that it meets building code. Of“cials will give guidance about any work that needs to be corrected. Proper techniques and materials must be incorporated into the construction of buildings to reduce their vulnerability to damage during moderately high wind events,Ž stated the Federal Emergency Management Agency. This concept is known as the continuous load path, FEMA stated. It transfers the wind forces from one part of the house to another until they are transferred to the ground.

Tatyana Carlisle, 23, listed on reports as a stay-at-home mom,Ž faces two counts of neglect of a child without great bodily harm, second-degree felonies. As of Saturday, she was still in the Highlands County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bond. Arrest reports state that the case started Sept. 14, when Highlands County Central Dispatch received a call at approximately 11:45 p.m. about two children running naked in a field. When a Highlands County Sheriff deputy arrived, they found that the two children had been picked up by Carlisle. The deputy found the two had been able to get out unnoticed through a rear sliding glass door, according to arrest reports. Both the house and the field were near U.S. 98 and a major thoroughfare through the neighborhood, reports said. Reports said the deputy also found the house was messy and dirty with minimal food. The deputy advised Carlisle to clean up the house, reports said. The next day, Sept. 15 at 1:06 p.m., according to reports, deputies received a call again about two small children in a field with no adult supervision. The deputy found the children, wearing only shirts, reports said. When the deputy arrived at the house, Carlisle allegedly answered the door wearing just a shirt, and when the deputy asked if she knew where the children were, she reportedly asked, They are not in the bathroom?Ž Reports said she was adamant that the children were in the bathroom. The deputy told her this was the second such incident in two days, and after she got dressed, she became very upset, reports said. She told the deputy she had left the children in the bathroom while she set up a crib in her bedroom. She also told the deputy, reports state, that the children got out through the sliding glass door which she cannot lock and cannot be secured. Reports state the incident was reported at 1:06 p.m. and the deputy arrived at 1:25 p.m., meaning the children were in the field for 19 minutes before she noticed they were missing. Reports said the deputy again found dirty clothes and trash on the floor of the main room as well as pieces of food and dirty dishes stacked up in the kitchen. In the bedroom, reports said, the deputy found trash, dirt and dirty clothes on the floor. When a child protection investigator arrived on Sept. 15, reports said the investigator said a safety plan would have to be implemented, which reports said Carlisle agreed to do. The alternative was to have the children removed from her care.Woman charged with child neglect CARLISLESPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNName: Peevy Breed: Chihuahua mix Sex: Male Info: Peevy is a “veyear-old male chihuahua mix.

A4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | September 23, 2018 are at the spots where the building meets the foundation, where the “rst ”oor and second story connect and where the walls connect to the roof.Ž Properties that follow Florida building code have the proper construction to transfer wind forces and reduce damage to homes by hurricane-force winds. City of Sebring Building/Zoning Code Enforcement Of“cer Lee Tolar said, In existing homes, homeowners need to make sure windows and doors are caulked and sealed. They also need to be sure that the windows are closing properly. In the event of a hurricane, people know it is coming,Ž Tolar said. If you know your home tends to have standing water, you need to get sandbags to put in front of the door. If water tends to stand during rain, take precautions.Ž Get shutters for your windows, even though it is not required,Ž City of Sebring Building Of“cial Tom Fisher said. People should put up plywood if they dont have shutters.Ž FEMA suggests two types of ”ood proo“ng „ dry ”oodproo“ng and wet ”oodproo“ng. In dry ”oodproo“ng, the portion of a structure that is below the chosen ”ood protection level (walls and other exterior components) is sealed to make it watertight and impermeable to ”oodwaters,Ž FEMA stated. The objective is to make the walls and other exterior components impermeable to ”oodwaters.Ž For existing homes, FEMA recommends securing the roof and improving the homes ability to withstand water as the priorities for making a home more hurricane resistant. When choosing materials to use for ”ood-resistance, FEMA has a list of materials able to withstand prolonged contact with water for at least 72 hours without sustaining signi“cant damage. According to FEMA, signi“cant damage means any damage requiring more than cosmetic repair. FEMA rates building materials on a scale from one to “ve, with “ve showing the most water resistance. Materials rated one to three are considered unacceptable for prolonged water contact. One type of built-in cabinet that meets FEMAs standards is metal. Wood and particle board cabinets were considered unacceptable. Carpet, linoleum and vinyl received the worst ratings for ”oor coverings, with a score of one. Homeowners who have dragged soaked carpet to the road after a hurricane will agree with FEMAs ranking decision. Although linoleum and vinyl are water resistant, they are not water proof, because they do not hold up well with standing water. Ceramic and porcelain tile with mortar set received an acceptable ranking of four. Concrete tile with mortar set received the highest rating of “ve. This makes sense, because the clean-up of tile is usually possible with just a mop and bucket. Brick and concrete block homes provide both wind and ”ood resistance. Face or glazed brick and concrete block have a ”ood-resistance rating of “ve. People who have existing homes in low-lying areas or simply older homes not built to todays building codes may wish to consider wet ”ood-proo“ng. Wet ”oodproo“ng is a method to reduce damage that typically involves three elements: allowing ”oodwaters to enter and exit to minimize structural damage, using ”ood damage-resistant materials and elevating utility service and equipment,Ž FEMA stated. In the event of ”ooding, water may enter a house in a low-lying area, but the house can be built or retro“tted to better withstand water damage. Materials like metal cabinets, metal doors, tile, concrete block and sprayed polyurethane foam (SPUF) and closed-cell plastic foams can withstand prolonged exposure to water. Homeowners can consider using replaceable wainscot on the lower portion of their walls instead of just drywall. In addition, homeowners need to elevate utility service and equipment, like air conditioners and electrical outlets. Homeowners can place AC units on a raised concrete platform to minimize water damage. The whole house may not be able to be raised, but it is possible to raise the AC unit. Electrical outlets can also be raised a few feet from the ”oor. When homes are being repaired or remodeled, homeowners may wish to consider using building materials and techniques that make their homes better able to withstand the winds and rains of hurricanes.HURRICANEFROM PAGE 1A ROMONA WASHINGTON/STAFFA home in Wood Haven mobile home park on Brunns Road showed damage from Hurricane Irma. When remodeling or repairing, homeowners can use building techniques and materials that are ”ood and water resistant to minimize damage from hurricanes. By MARC VALEROSTAFF WRITERAVON PARK „ The Avon Park City Council will consider placing on suspension a Southside Community Redevelopment Agency Advisory Board member who is charged with three felony offenses and one misdemeanor offense. At its Monday meeting, the City Council will consider a resolution to suspend Cyrus Wyche from the Southside CRA Advisory Board. He was appointed to the board Dec. 12, 2016 and his term expires Dec. 12, 2020. The citys resolution shows that on Aug. 3, the 10th Judicial Circuit State Attorney found probable cause that Wyche knowingly committed grand theft of $300 or more and engaged in a scheme to defraud less than $20,000 and did unlawfully use a two-way communication device, which are all third-degree felonies. Also, the resolution shows that on Sept. 7, the 10th Judicial Circuit State Attorney found probable cause that Wyche did knowingly and unlawfully possess drug paraphernalia, which is a first-degree misdemeanor. Before he is suspended from the advisory board, Wyche will have an opportunity to be heard at 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 8 (which is the next City Council meeting), according to the resolution. A 10th Circuit Court document of the case of the State of Florida versus Wyche is included in the City Councils agenda. The court document states that between June 19, 2017 and Jan. 4, 2018, Wyche obtained or used money valued at $300 or more, which was the property of AP Community Awareness. Arnold Davis heads the non-profit Avon Park Community Awareness group that annually presents a community event in conjunction with Martin Luther King Day. Davis explained that Wyche wrote a grant to Walmart, which provided him with a $500 check in the name of AP Community Awareness. I went to Walmart to fill out the form to get the grant,Ž Davis said. When I began writing the grant, they said somebody had already received a grant from my organization.Ž He asked different people, including Wyche and he denied writing the grant, Davis said. Davis said he went back to Walmart, which provided him with a copy of the check that was cashed at Walmart. The check was was signed Cyrus Wyche.Ž When Davis gets a check like that, he deposits it in the bank, because it is not for personal use, it is for the community, Davis said. Some of the community members went into their pockets to make up for the shortfall caused by the theft, he said.AP to considering suspension of CRA Advisory Board member 3600 South Highlands Ave. | Sebring, FL 33870 | 866.442.2362 | YOUR ERHighlands Regional Medical Center is now powered by HCA Healthcare, a nationwide network of healthcare facilities and personnel.

Warren Pedner (Viewpoints of 9/3 and 9/19) and I dont seem to agree on much, but we do seem to agree that only in a black and white world are facts unquestionable. In our colorful world of spinŽ it is too frequently what people are willing to believe that is accepted as fact. OJ is not guilty in criminal court, but is guilty in civil court. Which is fact? It seems we cant even trust our legal system to determine facts without dispute. As for todays national media, if all they did was report the facts they would be the honorable fourth estate, serving as a check and balance to our political systems. However, since at least the days of W.R. Hearst, the media has spun the news for their particular bias. When news and opinion blur as they do in todays expanded media, it becomes just noise. As consumers we are left to sort out truth from “ction and, as the powers that be known, most of us are too busy or lazy to sift out the real facts. A 9/14 headline reads Trump falsely says Dems in”ated Maria death toll.Ž In the second paragraph at the top of the front page of the News Wire section we read: Public health experts have estimated that nearly 3,000 perished because of the effects of Maria.Ž We have to read to nearly the end of the article (on the back page) to learn that a month ago the factsŽ attributed 64 deaths to the hurricane, and a new study shows 2,975. Reading further we learned that the study was done by the Milken Institute School of Public Health at George Washington University. Unsaid is the so-called public health expertsŽ cited on page one are actually college students. Even the head of their institute is a noted economist, but not a public heath expert. What is the basis by which these students stand behind the science of their study? Do we know whether they had an agenda? Based on the newsŽ Ive read, there is a largely liberal, anti-Trump sentiment on our college campuses today. Do we know Trumps statement is false as stated in the headline? Is it a fact that the estimated increase in the death toll is due to Hurricane Maria? Can the hurricane be faulted for Puerto Ricos poor leadership and failure to upgrade its electrical grid for decades prior to Maria and their inability to quickly repair it after Maria even with U.S. assistance? What are the underlying facts? Arguing about why so many died is a losing argument and most politicians are smart enough to know that and took the safer road. President Trump studied business rather than political science and was elected in part because he was willing to challenge those that buy ink by the barrel. It would be great if we could understand the facts of a situation in soundbites, and basic reporting. We cant. Earlier this month I heard former President Obama declare: The biggest threat to our democracy is indifference ƒ Cynicism led too many people to turn away from politics and stay home on election day.Ž[1] Obama has it wrong. First, our nation is a republic not a democracy, one in which morality and education are essential. Even our founders knew that. In viewing the process of creating the Constitution, Thomas Jefferson observed that: ƒ whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government; that whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them to rights.Ž[2] Later, John Adams acknowledged: Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.Ž[3] The threat therefore is not indifference, but rather the cause of indifference. The cure is not just get out the vote;Ž what could be worse than indifferent voters at the polls, better that they stay home. Rather it is education of the public on how to seek the truth behind the information reported as fact. It begins with schools, but is a lifelong endeavor. It takes work; anything worth having takes work. We should not accept facts at face value, nor put down people who question the facts as presented … whether they be our neighbors or our president. Facts will always remain as facts, except when they arent. We have a moral and intellectual requirement to dig deeper. This election season, lets strive to go to the polls as informed electors. We are fortunate to have a great local paper that provides good information, that is more than many communities have. Our paper, as well as our active political groups, hold forums where we can meet candidates and ask questions. It can be helpful to get information from those with whom we dont agree. Lets separate the facts from the rhetoric and then go vote. Neal Hotelling is a Sebring resident. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily that of the Highlands News-Sun.

[2] Thomas Jefferson to Richard Price, 8-Jan-1789 [3] John Adams to the Of“cers of the First Brigade of the Third Division of the Militia of Massachusetts, 11-Oct-1798Everyone needs to dig deeperGUEST COLUMNNeil Hotelling Unless you havent been paying attention, you probably have heard about the impact Hurricane Florence has had on the Carolinas. The storm has dumped tremendous amounts of rain and killed at least 16 people at the time of this writing. While that is a terrible price to pay, think how bad it could have been if the storm had been a Category 4 when it made landfall, as forecast, instead of weakening to a Category 1. What started out as a very calm hurricane season blew up in a big way a few weeks ago. All of a sudden, we went from almost no activity to multiple named storms scattered all over the Atlantic Ocean. Hopefully, that will help everyone remember that while we are eagerly awaiting October and a possible break from the heat, we are still in the peak of hurricane season. We usually equate hurricane season with the summer months, and summer ended Sept. 22. But the threat from hurricanes really isnt over until after Thanksgiving because the season doesnt end until Nov. 30. While September is the of“cial peakŽ of hurricane season, dont think we can let our guard down when the calendar ”ips to October. Florida has been hit by 36 October hurricanes since records started being kept in 1851, and 10 of those were major storms, meaning category 3 or higher. One, Hurricane King in 1950, was a Category 4. Those 36 October hurricanes are only three less than we have had in September. In fact, the strongest hurricane ever recorded was born in October. Hurricane Wilma was part of the record-breaking 2005 season. If you recall, that was the year they ran out of names and had to start calling storms by Greek letters, making it all the way to Zeta, the sixth letter of the Greek alphabet. There were 28 named storms that year, 15 of them hurricanes. At one point, Wilma was a category 5 storm with winds of 175 mph and the smallest eye ever seen in a hurricane at just two miles across (the smaller the eye, the stronger the storm). After causing immense damage in Mexico, Wilma swept across south Florida from west to east, making landfall on Oct. 24 and causing $19 billion in damage in our state and leading to more than 30 deaths. It is also important to remember that a storm does not have to make landfall or even be a hurricane to be deadly. Tropical Storm Debby in 2012 was way out in the Gulf of Mexico when it spawned multiple tornados in our county, one of which killed a young mother in Venus. The point I am trying to make is that it is not really safe to let our guard down until about the time of our “rst Christmas parade. If you live in Florida, you should already have a hurricane plan. Look it over and see if you need to make any changes. Pull the generator out and make sure it starts. Go ahead and get some plywood pre-cut to “t your windows. It only takes one storm to make a huge impact, and you never know when that storm will come. Paul Blackman is the Highlands County sheriff. Email him at pblackman@ Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily that of the Highlands News-Sun.Hurricanes dont pay attention to the calendarFROM THE SHERIFF Paul Blackman The ongoing debate over guns in America has led some to vociferously call for abolishing the Second Amendment. Thats just not wise thinking. There are common-sense restrictions on guns that fall within the scope of the Second Amendment. So theres no need to even consider abolishing it. Nevertheless, calls for abolishing the Second Amendment are coming from such respected “gures like retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens. And a new poll shows that about 20 percent of Americans favor repealing the Second Amendment. In reality, that probably shouldnt be a surprising statistic. There are actually Americans, after all, who regularly support restrictions on speech that would not be allowed under the First Amendment. So, of course, there will always be a fringe minority out there yapping for scrapping the Second Amendment. Or the Third Amendment. Or the Fourth Amendment. Or the ... You get the point. Fortunately, the anti-Second Amendment extremists have little support in Washington; even blue-state Democrats like Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California have made clear they support gun ownership for self-defense and hunting. Whats even more striking is that noted, liberal-leaning Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe has also dismissed the campaign to abolish the Second Amendment. In a piece for The Washington Post, Tribe wrote that the Second Amendment isnt the problem; in fact, Tribe declared, repealing the Second Amendment would not limit a single gun or enact a single regulation. The fact is abolishing the Second Amendment isnt necessary because the Supreme Court has already set some reasonable parameters. In the Supreme Courts historic 2008 Heller decision that underlined an individuals right to bear arms, the court also noted that right wasnt unlimited „ and that certain classes of dangerous and unusualŽ weapons could be limited. The court has also allowed limits on assault weapons, large magazines and the number of weapons that can be stockpiled. Thats why instead of abolishing the Second Amendment, the focus should be on reducing the ability of Americans to use military-style weapons to kill innocent fellow citizens. The focus should also be on restricting the ability of mentally ill people „ and those with histories of domestic violence „ to have easy access to “rearms; clearly more safeguards must be built in to immediately red-”agŽ such Americans whenever they try to purchase weapons. There is certainly widespread support for that kind of proactive approach. In a recent poll, 85 percent even voiced support for letting the police take guns away from people deemed dangerous „ and at least “ve states have such laws in place. Gun advocates like to criticize the 1994 ban on assault weapons for its emphasis on cosmetic features; they deride it as a naive and unrealistic law designed by people who know nothing about guns. For example, the 1994 law de“ned assault weapons based on such features as pistol grips. In an opinion piece, Palm Beach County criminologist Thomas Gabor said such poor standards of de“nition have undermined attempts to strictly regulate assault weapons because the gun industry can easily make cosmetic modi“cations to skirt the regulation.Ž Gabor has proposed a more realistic de“nition of assault weapons that takes an objective, scienti“c approach based on lethality „ as well as relevant factors like caliber, muzzle velocity, rate of “re, capacity and design ”exibility. Thats a reasonable idea. And its a far more palatable idea than the harebrained suggestion that its time for America to abolish the Second Amendment.

Ultimately, Lake Placid paid $25,000, and both Blackman and county of“cials found other places to come up with the last $50,000. Blackman said Florida has no funding for startup costs „ cars, uniforms, guns, radios and equipment „ for the initiative to put of“cers in every school. The Sheriffs Of“ce would bear that on our own,Ž Blackman said in July. Some cost-saving measures included using former law enforcement of“cers on a truncated annual schedule, beginning and ending with the school year.COUNTYFROM PAGE 1A By KIM LEATHERMAN STAFF WRITERLAKE PLACID „ Bob Wilson raised concerns, once again, over the speed limits in his neighborhood. He is worried that someone will be hurt or even killed by the speedsters driving down Highlands Lake Drive, the eastern-most entrance to the neighborhood of Highlands Park Estates, which is a subdivision located east of U.S. 27 off CR 621. Wilson explained the differences in the speed limit on the different roads. There are three entrances into the neighborhood: Hallmark Avenue, Washington Boulevard and Highlands Lake Drive,Ž Wilson said. Hallmark Avenue and Washington Boulevard have signs for 35 mph but Highlands Lake Drive is posted for 45 miles-per-hour.Ž He stated this caused confusion and felt the higher the posted speed limit, the higher the motorists will go over it. Highlands Lake Drive should be 35 mph also,Ž he said. There is a hill in the middle of the road that causes low visibility.Ž Towards the end of Highlands Lake Drive are wooded areas that Wilson said are full of kids playing on golf carts and all-terrain vehicles. He has reported the situation to Highlands County Sheriff Paul Blackman. According to Wilson, Blackman told him that he could not have of“cers stationed there full time. Wilson said he has also contacted County Commissioner Jack Richie several times about the speed limit variations and did not get satisfactory answers. My biggest concern is that a (speeding) motorist will hit a golf cart full of kids,Ž Wilson said. Highlands County Engineer Clinton GatorŽ Howerton Jr. said that his department is aware of the issue and will be doing a traf“c study on the Highlands Lake Drive road within the next few months. We have to do a speed limit study before we change anything,Ž Howerton said. Thats part of the statutory requirements. I cant change signs just because I want to. It is on my list of streets that people have been requesting for us to look at. We do several at one time. If there is an elevation issue, we will have to shoot elevation levels and do some survey work to see what threshold it meets. We will investigate it.Ž Howerton said the roads have been in that condition for many years. Wilson agrees as he said the situation has existed since he moved there in 1992. Howerton said that a reduced speed limit will not curb all speeders. Wilson was skeptical the study would change things but said he was hopeful. They havent changed things yet,Ž he said. The most we can do is make people aware of it.Ž Howerton said the study will take place in the next three or four months. The test will take a few days to get representative data. Analysis would take a couple of days to make a decision with other engineers and come up with a solution. The change, if any, could take one day for a new speed marker sign, to weeks depending on the cure, for example if there are elevation issues. Howerton said stop signs and speed bumps will not be used because of past experiences with them. Other solutions would have to be considered. The last thing we want to do is have someone get hurt because of something we do,Ž he said.Road to get traffic study for speed adno=3613857-1 Hours: 9:00 a.m. 5:00 p.m. € Monday-Friday 8TH YEAR IN BUSINESS IN SEBRINGPH# 863-385-5689 € FAX RX 863-582-9355 3200 US Hwy 27 S., Suite 103 € side entranceAAA Direct Discount DONT LET THE DONUT HOLE TAKE A BITE OUT OF YOU!SYMBICORT....... 160 MCG/4.5 MCG B.......360 DOSES .......... $167.00 DALIRESP ......................500 MCG B .........90 TABS .............. $218.00 PROVENTOLIN FHA .......100 MCG G .........800 DOSES ......... $153.00 SPIRIVA .........................18 MCG G ...........90 CAPS .............. $156.00 ANORO ELLIPTA.....55 MCG/22 MCG B ......90 DOSES ............. $325.00 XARELTO ........................20 MG B .............84 TABS .............. $259.00 ELIQUIS ..........................2.5/5 MG B .........180 TABS ............ $284.00 RANEXA ER ....................500 MG G ..........200 TABS .......... $182.00 PREMARIN .....................0.625 MG B ........84 TABS ............ $117.66PREMARIN ....................0.3 MG B .............84 TABS ............ $121.00MULTAQ.........................400 MG B............ 180 TABS............$553.00 No Control over availability and prices subject to change VIAGRA100mg BRAND$1000a pill 24/36VIAGRAGENERIC 100mg 40 tabs $12900CIALIS20mg BRAND$1900CIALISGENERIC 20mg 20 tabs $11000adno=3613864-1 adno=3613198-1adno=3613406-1 Oculoplastic and Reconstructive SurgeonWelcome Kendra DeAngelis, MD to Newsom Eye!

The School Board of Highlands County, through Secondary Curriculum Department will be hosting the annual College Night from 5-7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 1 in the Smith Center at Sebring High School. All high school students and parents/guardians are invited to attend. In the past, a few middle school students looking ahead at the educational opportunities have also attended College Night. The district is expecting 35 representatives from colleges, universities and the military to participate in the annual event. Students and parents will gain valuable insight from higher education professionals about attending college and the impact it can make in ones life. The representatives will help explain the options and requirements for speci“c schools and information about applying for “nancial aid. Some valuable questions to ask are: € Is it a trade school, community college, or a four-year college or university? € What kinds of degrees or certi“cates do they offer? € What are required SAT/ACT scores for acceptance? € How far away from home is it located? € Do you offer tutoring if needed? € Do you offer extra-curricular activities? € How large are the classes? € What are the admission and “nancial aid deadlines? Some of the institutions that will be represented at College Night include: South Florida State College, Valdosta State University, University of South Florida, Warner University, Webber International University, University of Florida, Stetson University, University of Central Florida, Universal Technical Institute, Saint Leo University, Polk State College, Keiser University Center of Culinary Arts, LIM College, New York, Florida State University, Florida Polytechnic University, Florida Gulf Coast University, and Charleston Southern University.

By PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ Imagine you make a 911 phone call for an ambulance because someone you love is having a heart attack. You give the dispatcher the number for your house, but paramedics cant find you quickly because the number doesnt match the number your house should have. The same holds true for a fire or a crime in progress. Dispatchers have occasionally been unable to direct emergency personnel to the right address, said Don Colip, the 911 GIS mapping technician for the Highlands County Sheriffs Office. Thats why a team from GeoComm „ a public safety GIS data provider „ is going out over the county for the next five weeks to make sure all those numbers match. They have been contracted by the Highlands County Sheriffs Office Central Dispatch to make sure those numbers are right, and correct them if they arent. Colip said the project should help validate the data they use at the 911 call center, to make sure that data is accurate, and that people are using the right address. Some people make up their own address,Ž Colip said. Why do that? Sometimes they dont like the number and prefer to use an old one, he said. Sometimes they dont really want to be found, for whatever reason. Or sometimes they dont know their address and think they can guess, Colip said. They look at the numbers left and right of them and figure their number is somewhere between them. That causes delays in response,Ž Colip said, which can mean the difference of life or death. How often does it happen? Not very often on average. Colip said the 911 call center got 73,000 administrative calls between May and July and 13,000 direct 911 calls, which translate into 35,000 computer-aided dispatch cases, during one quarter. Each month, 911 dispatchers see five to 10 cases of mismatched house numbers, Colip said, which would equal 15-30 per quarter. Still, no one wants to have that one call. If youre on the other end of the phone and your loved ones having a heart attack,Ž Colip said, leaving the sentence unfinished: All it takes is one (mistake) to change your life.Ž Every house should have numbers posted on the side of the house and on the mailbox, Colip said. They should be easy to read, weather-resistant Arabic numerals „ no fancy scripts „ and legible from the road. On a house, duplex, triplex or quadraplex, they should be 4 inches tall, he said. On businesses or multifamily buildings, they should be 6 inches. Lastly, numbers on mailboxes also must be easily seen from the road, and the mailbox itself should not be obscured.

Discovery (Lake Alfred) quarterback Jeremiah David, under duress by the Avon Park defense, hit Jacorian Davis on a short crossing pattern and Davis outran the Red Devil defense down the left sideline for a 41-yard touchdown as the Spartans took a 6-0 lead. Avon Park tied the game at 6 early in the second quarter on a 19-yard pass from Tyrek Dunlap to Nacaris Nance that Nance caught over the middle and outran the Spartan defense to the end zone. The Spartans retook the lead right before the half when Discoverys Anthony Ballard picked off a Dunlap pass and returned it 50 yards for a touchdown as the Spartans went into the half leading the Red Devils 12-6. The Red Devils came out solid in the second half. The defense created two turnovers to start the third quarter, the “rst being an interception by Rashaud Graham and the second a fumble recovery by Jalen Turner. Avon Park converted both of those miscues into touchdowns with Earl Collins scoring both on runs of 14 and 3 yards as the Red Devils quickly took a 20-12 lead. The Spartans did not fold as once again they used their speed to torch the Avon Park secondary midway through the third quarter as Davis connected with Ballard on a 63-yard pass play to tie the game at 20.Red Devils conquer SpartansAvon Park rallies for win over Discovery PHOTO BY JIM TAYLOR/CORRESPONDENTAvon Parks Earl Collins runs over a Discovery defender during Friday nights game.

First-time quarterback Shamar Mitchell led Lake Placid to victory with a solid effort. The win improved the Green Dragons to 2-3 on the season. We had no bickering and came together as a team,Ž said “rst-year Lake Placid Coach Andy Judah. We played hard for each other. It wasnt about who scored or who played what position. It was about what can we do to win a football game.

We have a different philosophy and as we evolve you will see more success. Shamar Mitchell came in and did a great job of managing the football game. We were able to use our weapons better with Katwan Ward and Javarie White. Quwesmael Sholtz and Cade Simmons did what ever we asked of them.

The Freshwater Fishing Forecast for the last week of September gives anglers the full moon phase and the usual rainy season weather forecast. And as is the case with every full moon phase, daytime anglers hope cloud-cover is suf“cient enough to block-out the light of the full moon. The darker the night skies, the greater the feeding action will be twelve hours later when the moon is underfoot. All “shing factors considered, anglers will enjoy above-average “shing results during this weak full moon phase (weak status due to being “ve days after the lunar orbit apogee). With the full moon occurring Monday night, and the weather forecast predicting greater than “fty percent cloud-cover throughout the four-day period, the midday hours will be productive. Finally, fall season “shing arrives and will improve with each degree of temperature decline, increasing feeding activity to full speed once the temperature range declines into the perfect range of 70-82 degrees on the waters surface. The weather forecast is also predicting greater than average atmospheric pressure change Monday through Wednesday during the late morning hours and early afternoon hours. Therefore “sh adjustment activity will be higher than its been all summer long„the Fall Season Effect caused by the Autumnal Equinox, which occurs today. The fall season causes a shift in our weather pattern, most noticeable will be the wind pattern changing to a more predominate northerly and northeasterly direction. However this week a weak east wind will remain consistent, producing speeds in the seven mile per hour (mph) range each day in the early to midafternoons. Looking ahead at the extended weather forecast predictions; temperatures begin to decline starting this coming weekend. Wind will become an ideal “shing wind with speeds averaging in the ten mph range, starting early in the morning and continuing into the sunset period. And as already stated, the daily atmospheric Fall and full moon fishing arrivesHIGHLANDS BASS ANGLERDave Douglass By MARK PINSONSPORTS EDITORSEBRING „ Sebring senior Roger Yarde ran for two touchdowns and returned an interception for another score to pace the Blue Streaks to a 53-15 homecoming win over Lely on Friday night at Firemens Memorial Field. The loss dropped Class 5A Lely (Naples) to 0-4, while the victory improved Class 6A Sebring to 3-1. It was a good win,Ž said Sebring head coach LaVaar Scott. We did a lot of good things tonight on offense and defense and it was a nice turnout for our homecoming game. Weve been putting up a lot of points lately and thats a good thing.Ž Sebrings defense set the tone on Lelys “rst possession of the game as Trojan quarterback Jonis Dieudonne attempted a slant pass that Yarde jumped in front of and returned 37 yards for a touchdown. The extra point by C.D. Lamadine made it 7-0. Lely fumbled on its next possession and Sebrings William Crenshaw recovered the ball on the Trojans 37. Sebring senior quarterback DJ Williams capitalized on the excellent “eld position as he scampered around the left end for a 37-yard scoring jaunt. The point after gave the Blue streaks a 14-0 lead with 7:59 remaining in the “rst quarter. Lely answered with its best drive of the night. The Trojans drove 68 yards in eight plays with running back Henderson Francois bulling his way into the end zone from 7 yards. The extra point pulled Lely within 14-7.

Mitchell then passed to Sholtz for a 44-yard touchdown giving the Green Dragons a 6-0 lead at the end of the “rst quarter. At the start of the second quarter, Lake Placid pulled off an onside lick that Katwan Ward recovered on the 50-yard line. Ward carried the ball 28 yards to the Kings 21-yard line and Mitchell rushed for 13 yards to the Kings 8-yard line. Mitchell broke loose and raced into the end zone and Cade Simmons passed to Sholtz for the two-point conversion extending the Green Dragons lead to 14-0 with 9:51 left in the “rst half. Lake Placids Simmons and Tray Spencer teamed up to take down Southwest Floridas quarterback Cade Daughterty on fourth down and the Green Dragons took over on downs on their own 22-yard line. White ran the ball to Southwest Floridas 36-yard line for a 42-yard gain. Mitchell ran three quarterback keepers to move the ball to the Kings 8. White “nished the drive with a scoring run. The Green Dragons went for the extra point but after a high snap Sholtz ran the ball to the outside and into the end zone for a two-point conversion to make it 22-0 late in the “rst half. We came out physical and ready to play,Ž said Mitchell. We have been ready to play all week. It feels good to be at quarterback and I love it. I want to stay there. If we stick together and stop all the bickering I think we will go far. This season I want to go to the playoffs. As a team we want to play for each other and then everything will come together. We are going to train hard for Fridays game and continue to build on this. We are on the bottom right now and we have to climb to the top.Ž The Green Dragons continue to build on their lead in the third quarter. Ward ran the ball 20 yards down the sideline and White ripped off a 26-yard gain to the Kings 3. Ward powered his way into the end zone for a 3-yard touchdown and kicker, Diego Garrio, made the extra point escalating the Green Dragons lead to 29-0 with 4:27 left in the third quarter. Lake Placids Tahj Williams intercepted the ball and ran it in for an outstanding 60-yard touchdown. Garrio kicked the extra point stretching Lake Placids lead to an overwhelming 36-0 with 2:25 left in the third quarter. The Green Dragons took over on downs on the Kings 44-yard line. White ran the ball right and was brought down on Southwest Floridas 34-yard line for a 10-yard gain. Lavontay Callahan carried the ball down the sideline to the Kings 6-yard line. Mitchell ran for a 2-yard touchdown. Williams kicked the point after to make it 43-0. Mitchell controlled this game,Ž Judah said. The backs did what they were supposed to but I am most proud of Sholtz. The way he played today was awesome. He told me whatever he needed to do he would do it. That was just awesome. He is such a weapon and when we move him around it is going to be trouble. It is that time of the season where we are pretty banged up so we are going to look at that.

B4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | September 23, 2018 Undeterred, the Blue Streaks found the end zone as Williams connected with Norris Taylor on a 30-yard scoring pass. The point after was no good and Sebring led 20-7 heading to the second period. Lely moved the ball inside the Sebring 20, but a pass was intercepted to kill the threat. The Trojans fumbled on their next possession at their 22 and the Blue Streaks wasted no time scoring as Williams went off-tackle for a 24-yard touchdown run. The point after made it 27-7 midway through the second period. Sebring made sure there would be no second-half comeback by Lely as Williams hit Taylor on a beautiful 19-yard touchdown pass to give the Blue Streaks a commanding 34-7 lead early in the third period. The Sebring defense, which had “ve sacks, forced a Lely punt and the Blue Streaks marched down the “eld behind strong running by Yarde who found the end zone again on a 17-yard run to make it 40-7 with 3:46 left in the third quarter. Being so far ahead allowed Sebring to substitute freely and Devion Littles got into the scoring act with a nice touchdown run to make it 46-7. Both teams were able to score once more for the “nal tally. The dominating victory gives Sebring a lot of momentum heading into Friday nights district clash at Auburndale. We have a lot of playmakers and sometimes its tough getting all of them the ball,Ž Scott said. Roger had a big interception and its great to see our defense getting a turnover and taking it to the end zone.

PAGE 15 September 23, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B5By The Associated PressPatrick Mahomes is good. 2018 David Johnson looks nothing like 2016 David Johnson. The Rams defense has not only replaced the Seahawks as the NFCs most dominant unit, but may be the best the NFL has to offer. Week 3 will go a long way toward helping fantasy football owners decide how those clear early observations play out. Mahomes, Johnson and the Rams defense are certain starts, but the same cant be said for some others whose fate will hinge on the faith of their owners. START: Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, Buccaneers: FitzMagics next act wont be too hard as the Steelers defense looks easily disappears. Pittsburgh is 31st in fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks and will have to contend with the withering assault that will come from Fitzpatrick “ring the ball to the likes of Mike Evans, O.J. Howard and DeSean Jackson. Mahomes historic start is the only reason that Fitzpatricks 699 yards and eight touchdowns arent the story of fantasy football. Playing Fitzpatrick on Monday night will give his owners plenty of con“dence in pulling out a Week 3 victory. SIT: Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers: Seriously. The threat of his injured knee giving way blends in with a road game against a Redskins defense that has allowed 161 passing yards per game and a mere 5.1 yards per attempt. Rodgers saw his Week 1 fantasy output nearly cut in half by the Vikings last week and the Redskins will be focused on forcing him to make plays on his bad leg. Under normal circumstances, Rodgers is a must-start on a weekly basis, yet theres too much risk in play with his injury. Those who have a QB2 who is healthy and has a favorable matchup may want to go in that direction. START: Matt Breida, RB, 49ers: Hes not going to repeat his 12.5 yards per carry from last week against the Lions, but Breida is in line for another big afternoon against a Chiefs defense that is giving up yardage in big chunks. While Kansas City is seventh overall versus the run, its inability to stop pass-catching backs is why its 30th in fantasy points allowed per game to opposing runners. Alfred Morris will still get his touches but in a game with two bad defenses, Brieda is the clear choice, especially in point-per-reception (PPR) formats. SIT: Dalvin Cook, RB, Vikings: A hamstring issue led Cook to miss practice on Wednesday and with a battered Bills defense on the Sunday docket, this could lead Minnesota to either put him on a tight pitch countŽ in favor of Latavius Murray or have him sit out. Buffalo is 29th in fantasy points allowed per game against opposing backs, making Cook a tempting play, but dont be surprised if the Vikings play the longterm game and make Murray an intriguing ”ex option. START: Corey Clement, RB, Eagles: Its unlikely that Jay Ajayi and/or Darren Sproles will be available against the Colts, making Clement a sneaky good start in PPR leagues. Clement caught “ve passes for 55 yards and a touchdown in last weeks loss against the Buccaneers and gets a meaty matchup against Indianapolis. The Colts are allowing 11 catches and 93 yards per game to opposing running backs. With Nelson Agholor and Zach Ertz as the only reliable options in the Philadelphia passing game, look for the returning Carson Wentz to help get Clement 12-15 touches as a dual threat. SIT: Corey Davis, WR, Titans: Quarterback Marcus Mariotas status remains in question, which means Blaine Gabbert will again be cast into the role of game manager for a run-heavy attack. It doesnt help Davis cause that hell see plenty of All-Pro corner Jalen Ramsey much of the afternoon. The Jaguars are ninth in fantasy points allowed per game to opposing receivers and if Gabbert is indeed the starter, dont count on Davis putting up big numbers. START: Keelan Cole, WR, Jaguars: Leonard Fournette should return to the lineup, but it shouldnt keep Cole from having a solid encore performance after last weeks seven-catch, 116-yard outing against the Patriots that included his “rst touchdown of the season. Cole has caught 10 of his 12 targets in the early going and has shown his big-play skills, having pulled in four passes of 20-plus yards. Tennessee has allowed a staggering 70 percent completion rate to opposing passers and if the Titans put too much focus on slowing down Fournette, Cole and Blake Bortles will be able to put up solid numbers. SIT: Tyler Eifert, TE, Bengals: C.J. Uzomah is beginning to steal targets from Eifert and it doesnt help his cause that the Panthers have been solid when it comes to containing opposing tight ends. Eifert could have red zone potential, but the Bengals will look to exploit a Carolina defense that is 28th in completion percentage (73.7) by using running back Gio Bernard to help take attention off A.J. Green. START: Matthew Stafford, QB, Lions: Detroit is 30th in rushing, which is more reason for Stafford to “re away against a New England defense that was scorched by Blake Bortles last week. The Pats have allowed 276 passing yards per game and Stafford comes off a 347-yard, three-TD performance in the loss at the 49ers. This should also be a good game to play Lions receiver Kenny Golladay, who has seemingly passed by Marvin Jones and could have a huge Sunday night. SIT: Josh Gordon, WR, Patriots: Tom Brady will get to deploy his latest weapon on Sunday night, but Gordon wont be on the “eld enough to justify starting him. Gordon will probably get 15-20 plays, which means he will get three to four targets with at least one a down“eld shot. It will be best to wait a game or two before going all-in with Gordon, whose upside has never looked better now that he is with a franchise who can help him mature on and off the “eld.Fantasy advice for week 3 PHOTO BY MATT LUDTKE/ASSOCIATED PRESSGreen Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers is not a great fantasy start in todays game.

B6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | September 23, 2018 Avon Park tried to respond on their next drive. Driving to “rst-and-goal at the Discovery 5-yard line. The Spartans defense would hold, stopping Dunlap just inches from the goal line to force a turnover on downs to keep the score tied. Despite failing to score, the Red Devils took the lead on their next possession on a 5-yard run by David Martin to put Avon Park up 26-20 late in the third quarter. The Red Devil defense took charge for the rest of the game as they created turnovers on the Spartans next four possessions. Two fumbles recovered by Hunter Vanderpool and a third recovered by Jalen Turner would eventually lead to Collins scoring his third touchdown of the game on a 6-yard run to give Avon Park a 34-20 lead midway through the fourth quarter. The fourth turnover, an interception by Xavier Holdman, led to Collins scoring his fourth touchdown on a 41-yard gallop with less than a minute left in the game, giving the Red Devils a 41-20 lead and the “nal score. Collins rushed for 108 yards on 10 carries for four touchdowns and caught three passes for 14 yards. Dunlap rushed for 90 yards on 17 carries, completed 8 of 17 passes for 65 yards and a touchdown. Martin gained 44 yards on 8 carries. The Avon Park defense created six turnovers. We have to learn how to handle adversity,Ž said Hudnell. And how to handle success. It ultimately falls back on me and the coaching staff.

PAGE 17 September 23, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B7pressure change factor increases to almost double the amount of rise and decline from what we experienced all summer long. The greater the pressure change, the greater the adjustment activity, which in turn causes a greater need-tofeed factor daily. When it comes to bait color selection during the fall season, red is the best. Gold, orange, brown, and all variations of red baits, contrast very well as the suns position becomes lower or southward in the sky. And by the way, all you anglers out there which believe having red color on your bait causes the “sh to believe its wounded, thereby attracting more attacks or strikes, have either been in the sun too long, or need to get out in the sun more often. Fish are not three dimensional thinkers. They understand hunger, hunting to achieve full stomachs, food groups, and ”eeing attacks from larger feeding species. Other than that, its all in your imagination. Why does the color blue work so well? Is it because the larger “sh species believes the smaller prey isƒ.bruised or is it that theres a lack of oxygen? If “sh can determine if a “sh is wounded at all, its due to “sh-species scent produced by an injury and has much less to do with blood-color being present---red does contrast better in the fall season however. It also should be noted that a wounded “sh does emit a different action which hungry hunting “sh will attempt to consume in order to determine if its a food source. Best Fishing Days: Today through Wednesday the full moon will trigger above average “shing. Major Fishing Period: Today the moon underfoot period occurs at 12:23 p.m. and solar noon at 1:17 p.m. and the daily atmospheric pressure rise-period trend of the past four days has been during the late morning hours. Therefore a feed intensity rating of 6-7 will occur from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today through Wednesday. Due to the full moon phase still being in a weak state (full moon during the lunar orbit perigee (strong) will occur in January through March of 2019) the feed rating remains at the lowest annual full moon rate. Minor Fishing Period: Today the moonrise period occurs at 6:52 p.m. and the sunset at 7:21 p.m. and will cause a feed rating of 5-6 from 6:30-9 p.m. This period moves later by about 30 minutes daily. It should be noted that this time of day is also the high dissolved oxygen period of the day, which improves feeding activity. The morning moonset-sunrise period (5:48 a.m. and 7:15 a.m. today) still has the negative factor of the low dissolved oxygen rate period of the day creating a stressed state in many lakes and areas of lakes, throughout our state. However there will always been some “sh which need-to-feed within high-oxygen areas in the lake. This will occur from 6-8 a.m. with a rating of 3-5 depending on the oxygen concentration-rate of the area you “sh. Prime Monthly Periods: September 23-27 weak full moon, October 6-11 new moon, 21-26 full moon.

Seasonal Safety Notes: Lightning is a very serious threat during the Florida rainy season. The standard rule: Be no more than 3-4 minutes away from a vehicle or permanent structure. So the time your boat is able to travel from your “shing-hole to one of the two safe-place options, should be less than 4 minutes. If you get caught on the lake with no time to get to safety, keep motors in the water and lay down as low as possible andƒ.. persuade yourself not be this irresponsible with yourself ever again. News: The lake level is at 38.90 feet above sea level, which is the maximum level in the seasonal management schedule and 7 inches below the annual maximum level. The minimum level currently is 38.50. Today, one of four S68 spillway gates are open 7 inches and ”owing a combined 135 cubic feet per second to maintain the seasonal schedule. This seasonal rain-buffer schedule is necessary because the lake “lls six times faster than water is able to be released during major rain events.

THE NEWS WIRESTATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS TANZANIA DEATH TOLL 209 AS SURVIVOR FOUND IN CAPSIZED FERRYSee page 2 Sunday, September 23, 2018 By NASSER KARIMI and JON GAMBRELLASSOCIATED PRESSTEHRAN, Iran „ Militants disguised as soldiers opened “ re Saturday on an annual Iranian military parade in the countrys oil-rich southwest, killing at least 25 people and wounding over 60 in the deadliest terror attack to strike the country in nearly a decade. Women and children scattered along with once-marching Revolutionary Guard soldiers as heavy gun“ re rang out at the parade in Ahvaz, the chaos captured live on state television. The regions Arab separatists, once only known for nighttime attacks on unguarded oil pipelines, claimed responsibility for the brazen assault. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif blamed regional countries and their U.S. mastersŽ for funding and arming the separatists, issuing a stark warning as regional tensions remain high in the wake of the U.S. withdraw from the Iranian nuclear deal. Iran will respond swiftly and decisively in defense of Iranian lives,Ž Zarif wrote on Twitter. The attack came as rows of Revolutionary Guardsmen marched down Ahvazs Quds, or Jerusalem, Boulevard. It was one of many around the country marking the start of Irans long 1980s war with Iraq, commemorations known as the Sacred Defense Week.Ž Journalists and onlookers turned to look toward the “ rst shots, then the rows of marchers broke as soldiers and civilians sought cover under sustained gun“ re. Iranian soldiers used their bodies at time to shield civilians in the melee, with one Guardsman in full dress uniform and sash carrying away a bloodied boy. Oh God! Go, go, go! Lie down! Lie down!Ž one man screamed as a woman ” ed with her baby. In the aftermath, paramedics tended to the wounded as soldiers, some bloodied, helped their comrades to ambulances. Video obtained by The Associated Press of the aftermath showed bodies of soldiers, some appearing lifeless, laying on the ground in pools of blood. One had a blanket covering him. A man screamed in grief. The attack killed at least 25 people and wounded over 60, according to the state-run IRNA news agency. It said By SARAH D. WIRELOS ANGELES TIMES (TNS)WASHINGTON „ Christine Blasey Ford, who alleges that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school, will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, her attorneys said in a letter Saturday. Ford, a research psychologist at Palo Alto University, still hopes that the Senate Judiciary Committee will meet several conditions. The letter, which says the attorneys are disappointed with the leaks and the bullying that have tainted the process,Ž asked for further negotiations for conditions at the expected hearing. The back and forth about when Ford would speak with the committee, and under what conditions, has dragged on for several days, blocking what had appeared a likely party-line vote for the Supreme Court nominee. Sen. Charles E. Grassley, R-Iowa, the committee chairman, had set a 5 p.m. Friday deadline for Ford to make a decision, but then changed that to 10 p.m. He said that if she did not reply, the committee would go ahead with a hearing Monday without her and vote on Kavanaughs nomination. Fords attorneys asked late Friday evening for an extra day to consult with their client, saying the deadline was aggressive and arti“ cial.Ž Grassley said on Twitter Friday evening that he would give Ford more time to decide, but signaled that his patience was running thin. Grassley agreed to Fords requests to allow just one TV camera in the hearing room and to limit news media access, to provide breaks during the testimony, and to keep Kavanaugh out of the room while Ford testi“ es. But he balked at her request that Kavanaugh testify “ rst, that only senators „ and not committee attorneys „ ask questions, and that subpoenas be issued to compel other potential witnesses to testify. Democrats on the committee have joined Ford in pushing for those stipulations, saying that senators have a responsibility to ask the questions. Republicans hope to avoid a repeat of the divisive con“ rmation hearings of Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas in 1991, and the political awkwardness optics of a panel of men questioning a female victim of sexual misconduct. They have pushed for staff or outside counsel to ask Ford and Kavanaugh questions. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the highest-ranking Democrat on the committee, accused Republicans of bullying Ford and said there were unpleasant echoes of how Thomas accuser, Anita Hill, was treated before Thomas was con“ rmed. Its clear that Republicans have learned nothing over the last 27 years,Ž Feinstein said. Bullying a survivor of attempted rape in order to con“ rm a nominee „ particularly GENEVA (AP) „ Drinking too much alcohol killed more than 3 million people in 2016, mostly men, the World Health Organization said. The U.N. health agency also warned that current policy responses are not suf“ cient to reverse trends predicting an increase in consumption over the next 10 years. In a new report Friday, the agency said that about 237 million men and 46 million women faced alcohol problems, with the highest prevalence in Europe and the Americas. Europe has the highest global per capita alcohol consumption, even though it has already dropped by 10 percent since 2010. Around a third of alcohol-related deaths were a result of injuries, including car crashes and selfharm, while about one in “ ve were due to either digestive disorders or cardiovascular diseases. Cancers, infectious diseases, mental disorders and other health conditions were also to blame. Far too many people, their families and communities suffer the consequences of the harmful use of alcohol through violence, injuries, mental health problems and diseases like cancer and stroke,Ž said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director-general of WHO. Its time to step up action to prevent this serious threat to the development of healthy societies.Ž The average daily consumption of alcohol by people who consume it is about two glasses of wine, a large bottle of beer or two shots of spirits. Globally, about 2.3 billion people are current drinkers. The report, the third in a series after ones in 2010 and 2014, relies on information from 2016 „ the latest data available. WHO said the trends and projections point to an expected increase in global alcohol per capita consumption over the next decade, particularly in Southeast Asia and the Americas. The policy responses which are currently in place in countries are de“ nitely not suf“ cient to reverse the trends, which we observe in several parts of the world, or to improve signi“ cantly this situation,Ž Dr. Vladimir Poznyak, coordinator of WHOs management of substance abuse unit, told reporters. When we look at the trends BY BLOOMBERG NEWS (TNS)BEIJING …… With new tariffs by the United States and China to go into effect Monday, there is no improvement in sight for relations between the two nations. $200 billion worth of Chinese products will be subject to tariffs on top of the $50 billion in goods on which tariffs have already imposed. The combined $250 billion in products subject to tariffs is almost half the value of imports from China last year. Meanwhile, $110 billion worth of goods from the U.S. will become subject to Chinese tariffs around the same time, or about 70 percent of the value of goods it bought from America in 2017. We dont want to, but we probably will have no choice,Ž Trump said of the tariff escalation at the Oval Of“ ce last week. Were making a lot of headway with China.Ž China Saturday called off trade talks with U.S. of“ cials that had been planned for next week. U.S. State Department sanctions Thursday against Chinas defense agency and its director contributed to the decision, people familiar with the matter said. Theres a growing consensus in Beijing that substantive talks will be possible with the Trump administration only after U.S. midterm elections in November, those people said. The U.S. products that China has targeted for retaliation have changed over time, shifting from cars and agricultural commodities to industrial goods. In the initial round, soybeans and most of Chinas imports of U.S. cars were hit. In the second round, the focus has widened and shifted more to capital goods and other imports, raising the cost for industrial companies. Thats partly because many of the goods traded in large volumes with the U.S. were already covered by the “ rst round, so its getting harder to “ nd things to impose new tariffs on. That can be seen in the number of goods affected. In round one there were 659 U.S. imports hit with the percent tariff, while this time there are Attack during military parade kills at least 25 in Iran AP PHOTOIn this photo provided by Mehr News Agency, civilians try to take shelter in a shooting scene, during a military parade marking the 38th anniversary of Iraqs 1980 invasion of Iran, in the southwestern city of Ahvaz, Iran, Saturday.

Page 2 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018By TOM ODULAASSOCIATED PRESSNAIROBI, Kenya „ It was a stunning discovery. As rescue divers probed a capsized Tanzanian ferry two days after the disaster and the death toll soared past 200, a man was found in an air pocket, alive. He was an engineer, regional commissioner John Mongella told reporters. As the badly overloaded ferry overturned on Thursday in the “nal stretch before reaching shore, the man shut himself into the engine room, the Tanzanian Broadcasting Corporation reported. Video footage showed the man, barefoot and head lolling, carried quickly along a busy street by medical workers and military personnel as a siren wailed. His condition was not immediately known. No further survivors were likely. Search efforts were ending so the focus could turn to identifying the dead, Tanzanias defense chief Venance Mabeyo told reporters at the scene. Mass graves were dug, and colorfully painted cof“ns arrived. Hundreds of family members and others waited quietly on the shore. One woman dropped to her knees in the sand next to the covered body of her sister and wept. We have found him after three days and now we are transporting his body to Kamasi for burial,Ž said Temeni Katebarira, the brother of one victim. Earlier in the day, workers continued to haul bodies from the water. Abandoned shoes were scattered on the sand. From morning till now we have retrieved more than 58 bodies. This includes both children and adults,Ž said TropistaTemi, a Red Cross volunteer. Because of the congestion we have not been able to do full totaling. Later, we will do a full tally.Ž But the total number of deaths might never be known. No one is sure how many people were on the overcrowded ferry, which of“cials said had a capacity of 101. It tipped as people returning from a busy market day with their goods prepared to disembark, while horri“ed “shermen and others watched. Of“cials on Friday said at least 40 people had been rescued. President John Magufuli has ordered the arrests of those responsible. He said the ferry captain already had been detained after leaving the steering to someone who wasnt properly trained, The Citizen newspaper reported. This is a great disaster for our nation,Ž Magufuli told the nation in a televised address late Friday, announcing four days of national mourning. Pope Francis, the United Nations secretarygeneral, Russian President Vladimir Putin and a number of African leaders have expressed shock and sorrow. The MV Nyerere, named for the former president who led the East African nation to independence, was traveling between the islands of Ukara and Ukerewe when it sank, according to the government agency in charge of servicing the vessels. Accidents are often reported on the large freshwater lake surrounded by Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda. Some of the deadliest have occurred in Tanzania, where aging passenger ferries often carry hundreds of passengers and well beyond capacity. In 1996, more than 800 people died when passenger and cargo ferry MV Bukoba sank on Lake Victoria. And nearly 200 people died in 2011 when the MV Spice Islander I sank off Tanzanias Indian Ocean coast near Zanzibar.Tanzania death toll 209 as survivor found in capsized ferry AP PHOTOSThe number of dead soared past 200 while a survivor was found inside a capsized Tanzania ferry two days after the Lake Victoria disaster, ocials said Saturday, while search eorts were ending to focus on identifying bodies.

The ex-aide to U.S. President Donald Trump addressed a forum in Rome organized by a small far-right Italian opposition party. Bannon was asked if there should be a new eliteŽ in growing, far-right populist movements. His reply? The new elite in this populist movement are the patriotsŽ in society. He heaped praised on populist leaders, pitting sovereignty movements against Brussels-based European Union in”uence on the continent. Among the models he cited was one in Italys six-month-old populist government, which includes hard-line Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, who leads the right-wing, anti-migrant League party. Salvini, who addressed the forum earlier Saturday, said the farright political spectrum includes the true defenders of European values.Ž The Italian, who is also a deputy premier, said the European Parliament elections in May across the continent offer right-wingers the occasion to send a force into government in Europe thats not socialist.Ž Bannon, in his comments, encouraged Italys populists to push their sovereignty-focused agenda to counter EU policies. He is working to help form a united trans-national front to push politics in Europe far to the right. British parents Tom Evans and Kate James were honored at the forum for their unsuccessful legal battle to keep their toddler son, Al“e Evans, on life support in a British hospital. Far-right “gures had focused on the case as an example of the wishes of one family against a socialistŽ state. The 23-year-monthold child died in April after British judges agreed with doctors that more treatment was futile. He had a degenerative neurological disease that left him with almost no brain function. Pope Francis was among those championing the cause of the parents. Tom Evans told the forum that a foundation has been set up to help people in a dif“cult stage of life like Al“es parents had endured, the Italian news agency ANSA reported. The political event was organized by the Brothers of Italy party, whose political roots come from a descendent of a neo-fascist party. Sardinias far-right governor, Paolo Truzzo, a Brothers of Italy leader, gave the award to the father, who recounted the drama of his son and who thanked, among others, the pope and the partys leader, Giorgia Meloni, for their support.Bannon dubs the far-right Europes new elite patriots OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) „ A powerful tornado that carved a path through parts of Canadas capital snapped trees, tossed cars and obliterated dozens of homes leaving what the citys mayor on Saturday said resembled a war scene.Ž More than 150,000 customers were still without power following the tornado, which churned through pockets of Ottawas west and south ends, as well as densely populated sections of the neighboring Quebec city of Gatineau late Friday. Authorities said dozens of people suffered injuries, however there were no reports of fatalities. The Ottawa Hospital tweeted that two people were in critical condition, one was in serious condition and two others were stable. Of“cials set up shelters for those who couldnt return home and they said crisis counselling would be available. It looked like it was something from a movie scene or a war scene,Ž Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson told reporters Saturday describing what he saw in the area of Dunrobin, where some 60 buildings were wiped out or partially destroyed. Literally, it looks like some bomb was dropped from the air.Ž Much of Dunrobin, a semi-rural community about 22 miles west of downtown Ottawa, remained cordoned off by police. Personal items were strewn everywhere „ a baby blanket, a life jacket, mattresses, lawn mowers, a fridge, a kitchen sink lying on the grass and even a love seat wrapped around a telephone pole.

Organizers say the Saturday afternoon event will include about 20 buses carrying Puerto Ricans and members of other Hispanic groups, along with faith leaders, progressives and others around the Palm Beach resort. A rally will follow in nearby West Palm Beach to remember those who suffered and died in last years hurricane. Among the scheduled speakers is Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, who faces a re-election challenge from Republican Gov. Rick Scott. Both have campaigned steadily among Puerto Ricans living in Florida.

The Ocala Star-Banner reports that 38-year-old Jeffrey Todd Kimberlin died shortly after arriving at an Ocala hospital Friday morning. The Florida Highway Patrol says Kimberlin was walking with his 7-yearold daughter along the shoulder of a rural road when a cargo van hit him from behind. The girl was not injured. The vans driver told troopers another vehicle had cut in front of him, forcing him off the road. He was charged with driving without a license.Police: Man stole victims car after fatal crashST. PETERSBURG (AP) „ Police say a Florida man was arrested after fatally striking a man who stopped to help a motorist on an interstate highway and then stealing the victims car. The Florida Highway Patrol reports that the body of 22-year-old Dhimitri Andoni was discovered Friday along Interstate 275 in St. Petersburg about 15 hours after the accident. Troopers say Andoni stopped his car on the shoulder to assist another driver when he was struck by a pickup truck driven by 30-year-old Dana Thomas Byrd. Authorities say Byrd stole Andonis car, leaving his truck behind, and abandoned Andonis car at a parking lot. A road ranger discovered Byrds truck and Andonis body, leading to Byrds arrest Friday on several charges. It wasnt clear Saturday if Byrd has an attorney to speak for him.Woman gets 9 years in prison for arson plotTAMPA (AP) „ A Florida woman has been sentenced to nine years and two months in prison for plotting to burn down a house occupied by two adults and six children. Court records show that 39-year-old Rashica Ford was sentenced Friday in Tampa federal court. She was convicted in June of conspiracy to commit arson. Authorities say Ford directed her boyfriend, Jodarin Whit“eld, and her brother, Herbert Pinckney, to set “re to a Sarasota home in March 2015 as retaliation for an earlier “ght. The men were supposed to throw a Molotov cocktail through the victims bedroom window, but the window didnt break, and only the homes exterior burned as the occupants escaped unharmed. Whit“eld was previously sentenced to eight years and three months. Pinckney was sentenced to two years and six months. HEADLINES AROUND THE STATEWORLD/STATE NEWS


The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018 E/N/C Page 3 SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) „ A California kindergartener can keep bringing a cannabis-based drug used for emergency treatment of a rare form of epilepsy to her public school, a judge ruled Friday. The Santa Rosa PressDemocrat reported that a judge sided with the family of 5-year-old Brooke Adams. The Rincon Valley Union School District in Santa Rosa sought to ban the ointment from school grounds because it contains the active ingredient in marijuana. Authorities argued that allowing Brooke to use the drug at school violated state and federal laws barring medical marijuana on school grounds. Medical marijuana use in private with a doctors recommendation is legal in California. A judges temporary order permitted Brooke to start school in August while the districts objections were considered. A nurse accompanies Brooke to school and has had to apply the oil three times to treat seizures. Judge Charles Marson made the order permanent on Friday. Marson is a judge in the state of“ce of Administrative Hearings Special Education Division, which handles disagreements between school districts and parents of children with disabilities. I was so overwhelmed with emotion and joy that we dont have to “ght anymore after a battle of over two years,Ž said Jana Adams, the girls mother. She can just go to school like any other child and we dont have to keep pushing to get what she needs.Ž The familys lawyer Joe Rogoway said he hopes the ruling opens the door for other students who say they need to use a cannabis-based drug on campus for medical reasons. District of“cials said they were reviewing the decision and havent decided whether to appeal. Assistant Superintendent Cathy Myhers said the district is relieved to have legal guidance on the issue. We are pleased with the decision and guidance,Ž Myhers said. We are happy to have a decision that supports our ability to educate and serve this student in our public schools.ŽJudge: California child can take cannabis drug to schoolPHOENIX (AP) „ Six siblings of U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar have urged voters to cast their ballots against the Arizona Republican in November in an unusual political ad sponsored by the rival candidate. The television ad from Democrat David Brill combines video interviews with Gosar-family siblings who ask voters to usher Paul Gosar out of of“ce because he has broken with the familys values. They do not elaborate. They previously condemned the congressmans false accusation in 2017 that wealthy Democratic donor George Soros was a Nazi collaborator in World War II. Its intervention time,Ž Tim Gosar says in the ad, endorsing Brill. And intervention time means that you go to vote, and you go to vote Paul out.Ž Phone calls Saturday to Paul Gosars of“ces in Washington and Arizona were not returned. Gosar is a fourth-term congressman for a sprawling district in northeastern and central Arizona. In a separate video segment, the siblings urge voters to hold the congressman accountable on health care, employment and environmental issues. Paul Gosars comments about Soros came in a television interview with Vice News in which he also suggested a 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, might have been a liberal conspiracy. In the new ad, the congressmans siblings describe their decision to speak out as saddening, horrible and ultimately a matter of pride for the family from Wyoming. I think my brother has traded a lot of the values we had at our kitchen table,Ž says Joan Gosar, an engineer. Pete Gosar, another sibling who ran unsuccessfully as a candidate for governor of Wyoming in 2014, does not appear in the ad, though he has publicly criticized his brothers views in the past. The rift in the Gosar clan is not the only sibling feud to wend its way into campaigning this year for Congress, as Democrats seek to retake majority control of the House and Senate from Republicans. In the race to replace House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, Democratic congressional candidate Randy Bryce is confronting an ad in which his brother endorses the Republican candidate. That upset Nancy Bryce, their mother, who has denounced the campaign ad in a letter that was recently made public.6 siblings of Arizona GOP congressman publically endorse his opponent AP PHOTOIn this Dec. 2013, “le photo, U.S. Rep.

By KEVIN FREKINGASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ The Federal Aviation Administration would be required to set new minimum requirements for seats on airplanes under legislation to be considered in the House this week, possibly giving passengers a break from ever-shrinking legroom and cramped quarters. The regulation of seat width and legroom is part of a “ve-year extension of federal aviation programs announced early Saturday by Republican and Democratic leaders of the House and Senate committees that oversee the nations air travel. Congress faces a Sept. 30 deadline to keep FAA programs running. The Senate will also need to take up the bill this week or both chambers will need to pass a shortterm extension. The bill would prohibit the involuntary bumping of passengers who have already boarded a plane. But in a nod to the power of the commercial airliners, lawmakers declined to include language that would have prohibited airlines from imposing fees deemed not reasonable and proportional.Ž Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida said lawmakers from both chambers agreed it was time to take action on ever-shrinking seats.Ž Relief could soon be on the way for weary airline passengers facing smaller and smaller seats,Ž Nelson said. In July, the FAA rejected the idea of setting minimum standards for airlines seats and legroom as a safety measure. But Congress appears determined to require the FAA to do so. The room between rows „ measured from a point on one seat to the same point on the seat in the next row „ has been shrinking for many years as airlines squeeze more seats onto their planes. It was once commonly 34 or 35 inches, and is now less than 30 inches on some planes. Lawmakers also included several provisions to address concerns about increased airport noise levels caused by new ”ight paths. The bill would require the FAA to study the potential health impacts of ”ight noise and the feasibility of amending existing departure procedures. The bill would also mandate that ”ight attendants get a minimum of 10 hours of rest between their work shifts and require airlines to communicate better with customers during mass ”ight cancellations and groundings. Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., chairman of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, said he expects the House and Senate to move quickly to send the bill to the presidents desk.Congress takes aim at shrinking seats, legroom on planes By MARYCLAIRE DALEASSOCIATED PRESSBill Cosbys sentencing hearing Monday will begin with testimony about his sex offender evaluation and, presumably, a “erce debate over whether the 81-year-old actor should be branded a sexually violent predator. The stakes are high given the lifetime counseling, community alerts and public shaming the designation would trigger. And it could become evidence in the defamation lawsuits “led against Cosby by accusers who say he branded them liars when he denied molesting them. Defense lawyers say the states latest sex-reporting law, despite several revisions, remains unconstitutional. Its the modern-day version of a scarlet letter,Ž said lawyer Demetra Mehta, a former Philadelphia public defender, which I think is sort of an interesting philosophical issue at this time with the #MeToo movement, but also criminal justice reform.Ž Pennsylvanias sex-offender board has examined Cosby and recommended he be deemed a predator, concluding that he has a mental defect or personality disorder that makes him prone to criminal behavior. Montgomery County Judge Steven T. ONeill will have the “nal say Monday. ONeill has presided over the case for nearly three years, from shortly after Cosbys December 2015 arrest to a 2017 trial that ended in a jury deadlock to the jury “nding this past April that Cosby drugged and molested a woman at his suburban Philadelphia estate in 2004. He faces anything from probation to 30 years in prison on the three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault. Its unclear if the judge, in weighing the predator label, will consider the dozens of other Cosby accusers who have gone public or his deposition in the trial victims 2006 lawsuit, when Cosby acknowledged getting quaaludes to give women before sex; described sex acts as the penile entranceŽ to an orificeŽ and digital penetrationŽ; and said he often gave young women alcohol but didnt drink or take drugs himself because he liked to stay in control. Defense lawyers fighting the predator label note that sexual offender registration laws are in flux in Pennsylvania and elsewhere. Numerous courts, including the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, have found the laws so vague as to be unconstitutional. Courts have also debated whether the programs unfairly amount to extra punishment, especially for people convicted of misdemeanors. Cosby has added one of the states top appellate lawyers, Peter Goldberger, to his defense team. This is going to probably be a very important case for sex-offender law when its up on appeal,Ž Mehta said. Its an area of law that is just sort of unsettled right now. Theres a lot up on appeal, but theres not a lot decided.Ž Pennsylvania alone now has 2,200 people classified as sexually violent predators, of the more than 20,000 people on its Megans Law list of sex offenders. The Megans Law group has their names, pictures and towns listed online, but theyre not subject to the same monthly counseling mandates as the predatorŽ group, and authorities dont actively warn communities of their nearby presence. The stigma may not be as paralyzing for a man like Cosby „ in his 80s, living in a gated house and presumably not looking for work or going to the local gym. However, its one more stain on his reputation. Defense motions note that the sex offender boards recommendation followed an evaluation by just a single board member, and that the evidence needs only to meet a clear and convincingŽ standard. That violates Cosbys right to reputation without confrontation, without trial by jury and without proof beyond a reasonable doubt,Ž defense lawyer Joseph Green Jr. argued in a July court filing. Legal experts believe a predatorŽ classification would be a legal finding that Cosby accusers could use in their defamation suits, including one involving seven women plaintiffs thats pending in Massachusetts. That may (also) be about legacy protection, about what the obituary says, what the Wikipedia page says,Ž said Daniel Filler, dean of Drexel Universitys Kline College of Law. You can bet, especially in crowd-sourced things, everythings going to begin with hes a sexually violent predator. Its like a slogan. He has a tag now.ŽCosby to fight sexually violent predator tagSentencing hearing Monday will begin with testimony about his sex offender evaluation AP PHOTOIn this Nov. 11, 2014, “le photo, comedian and Navy veteran Bill Cosby speaks during a Veterans Day ceremony in Philadelphia.

At least eight of the dead served in the Revolutionary Guard, an elite paramilitary unit that answers only to Irans supreme leader, according to the semi-of“cial Tasnim news agency. We suddenly realized that some armed people wearing fake military out“ts started attacking the comrades from behind (the stage) and then opened “re on women and children,Ž an unnamed wounded soldier told state TV. They were just aimlessly shooting around and did not have a speci“c target.Ž State TV hours later reported that all four gunmen had been killed, with three dying during the attack and one later succumbing to his wounds at a hospital. President Hassan Rouhani ordered Irans Intelligence Ministry to immediately investigate the attack. The president stressed that the response of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the slightest threat would be harsh, but those who support the terrorists should be accountable,Ž IRNA reported. Meanwhile, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei described the attack as exposing the atrocity and viciousness of the enemies of the Iranian nation.Ž Their crime is a continuation of the conspiracies by the U.S.-backed regimes in the region which have aimed at creating insecurity in our dear country,Ž Khamenei said in a statement. However, to their dismay, the Iranian nation will persist on the noble and prideful path they have taken and will „ like before „ overcome all animosities.Ž Tensions have been on the rise between Iran and the U.S. The Trump administration in May pulled out of the 2015 nuclear accord with Iran, and since then has re-imposed sanctions that were eased under the deal. It also has steadily ramped up pressure on Iran to try to get it to stop what Washington calls malign activitiesŽ in the region. Despite those touchy relations, the U.S. government strongly deplored the attack, saying that the United States condemns all acts of terrorism and the loss of any innocent lives.Ž We stand with the Iranian people against the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism and express our sympathy to them at this terrible time,Ž State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said. Initially, authorities described the assailants as tak“ri gunmen,Ž a term previously used to describe the Islamic State group. Iran has been deeply involved in the “ght against IS in Iraq and has aided embattled Syrian President Bashar al Assad in his countrys long war. But later, state media and government of“cials seemed to come to the consensus that Arab separatists in the region were responsible. The separatists accuse Irans Persiandominated government of discriminating against its ethnic Arab minority, though an Ahvazi Arab, Gen. Ali Shamkhani, serves as the secretary of Irans Supreme National Security Council. Khuzestan province also has seen recent protests over Irans nationwide drought, as well as economic protests. Iran has blamed its Mideast archrival, the Sunni kingdom of Saudi Arabia, for funding Arab separatists activity. State media in Saudi Arabia did not immediately acknowledge the attack, though a Saudi-linked, Farsilanguage satellite channel based in the United Kingdom immediately carried an interview with an Ahvazi activist claiming Saturdays attack. Hamid Baeidinejad, Irans ambassador to the U.K., called the channels decision a heinous actŽ in a post on Twitter and said his country would “le a complaint with British authorities over the broadcast. Yacoub Hor al-Tostari, a spokesman for the Arab Struggle Movement to Liberate Ahvaz, later told the AP that members of an umbrella group of Ahvazi activists his organization leads carried out the attack. The attack undermined the Iranian government on the day it wants to give a message to the world that it is powerful and in control,Ž al-Tostari said. To bolster his claim, he gave details about one of the attackers that the AP could not immediately verify. The Islamic State group also claimed responsibility for the attack in a message on its Amaaq news agency, but provided no evidence it carried out the assault. They also initially wrongly said the Ahvaz attack targeted Rouhani, who was in Tehran. The militants have made a string of false claims in the wake of major defeats in Iraq and Syria. In Tehran, Rouhani watched a military parade that included ballistic missiles capable of reaching Israel and U.S. military bases in the Mideast. Rouhani said the U.S. withdraw from the nuclear deal was an attempt to get Iran to give up its military arsenal. United Nations inspectors say Iran is still complying with the deal, which saw it limit its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions. Iran neither put its defensive arms aside nor lessens its defensive capabilities,Ž Rouhani said. Iran will add to its defensive power day by day.Ž Meanwhile, Iranian Gen. Abolfazl Shekarchi, a spokesman for the armed forces, alleged without evidence that the four militants involved in Saturdays attack were dependent to the intelligence services of the U.S. and the MossadŽ of Israel. They have been trained and organized in two Persian Gulf countries,Ž he said, without elaborating.ATTACKFROM PAGE 1at a time when shes receiving death threats „ is an extreme abuse of power.Ž Ford wrote Feinstein a letter in July, seeking con“dentiality.

NBC News reported Saturday that Garrett Ventry quit after the network questioned a claim made against him when he was employed by the North Carolina General Assembly. Ventry has denied any wrongdoing.TESTIFYFROM PAGE 1By TOM HAYSASSOCIATED PRESSNEW YORK „ Authorities in New York City are facing a security and logistical challenge of epic proportions with the coming arrival of President Donald Trump and other world leaders for the United Nations General Assembly. Though theres been no credible threats against the event, the security concerns are so broad that the New York Police Department has considered how it would stop assassins armed with poison or killer drones. The NYPDs main line of defense will be thousands of extra police of“cers ”ooding the streets as part of a carefully coordinated effort with the Secret Service and other federal and local law enforcement agencies to protect both the United Nations and Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan, said Police Commissioner James ONeill. Since the end of last years General Assembly, weve been planning how to best protect the various sites and all the people inside them, while also minimizing the impact on New Yorkers,Ž ONeill said at recent news conference at a command center at police headquarters. The 73rd Session of the General Assembly began on Sept. 18, but the higher-level meetings start Monday. The security arsenal features police boats patrolling the East River near the U.N., aviation units overhead and teams of of“cers trained to respond to chemical, biological and other potential terror threats. About 50 city Department of Sanitation dump trucks “lled with sand and 230 concrete barriers will be positioned at intersections and other strategic locations to guard against car or truck attacks like the one last year that killed eight people on a bike path in Lower Manhattan. Police said other preparations have included consulting with British authorities about the poisoning of a former Russian spy there earlier this year by way of a weapons-grade nerve agent. British of“cials say the attack was carried out by Russian operatives. Police have also studied an attack on Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro last month using drones rigged with explosives. Maduro said this past week that he may have to suspend a planned trip to the United Nations because of concerns his opponents would try to kill him if he travels abroad. But the NYPD is expecting more than 200 other world leaders to show up, all needing to move around the city in motorcades with police escorts. Those foreign dignitaries ”ying state aircraft into New Yorks Kennedy Airport will be greeted with strict enforcement of security rules requiring the planes to depart within two hours of touching down. The crackdown comes after the indictment of an airport supervisor on charges he took bribes to let Qatar and other countries park their planes overnight during the gathering. Trump is expected to arrive for a rare hometown visit and a possible stay at Trump Tower, his longtime home he has rarely visited since becoming president. Outside the skyscraper, police plan to set up a series of barriers and security checkpoints. Police said they expect more than 60 demonstrations outside the United Nations, foreign consulates and Trump Tower at various times during the week. The bad news for motorists: Of“cials say all the activity will cause worse gridlock than the traf“c jams during the Thanksgiving Day Parade, the tree-lighting ceremony at Rockefeller Center and the New Years Eve celebration in Times Square. Authorities said they hadnt calculated the cost of the security operation. But they said theres been a $20 to $30 million bill for past General Assemblies, and that the federal government covers most of it.Police beef up security for UN gathering AP FILE PHOTOIn this 2017 “le photo, a security team near Trump Tower looks toward high ”oors of nearby buildings shortly before the arrival of President Donald Trump in New York.

He said the data showed, for example, that alcohol consumption tends to drop in countries facing an economic crisis. Poznyak said it was imperative for the governments to put in place measures that can mitigate the harms associated with this increase.Ž The Distilled Spirits Council, which advocates for the industry in the U.S., said in a statement it supports the WHOs goal to reduce the harmful use of alcohol. However, we are concerned that some policy recommendations such as increasing alcohol taxes are misguided and dont effectively address harmful consumption,Ž it said.

There are already signs of that happening in energy markets. This round of tariffs will include levies on U.S. lique“ed natural gas. In the U.S., companies complain that the time between the announcement of tariffs and their implementation is too short to arrange alternatives.

So far, this makes a great case for the Roth. But remember that if the $5,000 had gone directly into a traditional IRA, you would have reaped about $1,200 in tax savings each year at a 24 percent tax rate (more, with a higher tax rate). If that sum were also invested, the total difference between the Roth and the regular IRA would become slimmer. Still, the Roth is a compelling proposition for many investors. You may be able to roll over, or convert, your traditional IRA into a Roth by paying taxes on it „ you can generally roll over a 401(k) account into a traditional or Roth IRA when you change jobs, too. The 2018 contribution limit for both Roth and traditional IRAs is $5,500 ($6,500 for those 50 and older). For 401(k)s, its $18,500 ($24,500 if 50 or older).

Its all-day breakfast menu has threatened pancake-slinging chains, and the company is moving aggressively into the future with kiosk ordering, a revamped value menu, a delivery partnership with Uber and renovated stores; all suggest the companys recent growth may continue. CEO Steve Easterbrook has unlocked more profits by refranchising restaurants in China and elsewhere around the globe, and the stock has soared since he took over in 2015, with shares up 73 percent over the last three years. Refranchising has pushed the percentage of company-owned locations down to 8 percent from 19 percent at the end of 2015, reducing reported revenue but raising profit margins. While many of its peers have complained about a restaurant recession,Ž McDonalds has posted consistently strong comparable sales growth, outpacing its rivals. Customer traffic has been growing, too. The fast-food giant is no slouch in the dividend department, either, having raised its payout annually since 1976. Recently, it yielded 2.5 percent. McDonalds has demonstrated that it can respond to shifting consumer tastes while maintaining „ and even boosting „ its profitability, earnings and direct shareholder returns. For a combination of growth, income, and security, give the Golden Arches some consideration. Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentStraightening Out an InvestmentOne of my dumbest investments was buying shares of Align Technology, the maker of Invisalign clear dental aligners and other products „ and then selling the shares too soon. I bought more than a decade ago, when the shares were trading for around $7, and held for a few months. After talking to several dentists (including one who was a close friend), I decided to sell when the shares were trading for about $8, moving that money into another dental-related investment that went nowhere. The first dentist to recommend selling the stock was also the one who introduced me to Align, as he had a video ad playing nonstop on a TV in his waiting room. „ R., online The Fool Responds: Ouch. As youve probably noticed, those shares that once traded for $7 have recently been priced above $365 per share. If youd bought $3,000 worth of shares, they would be worth more than $156,000. No one makes all the right investment moves, though our regrettable ones do sting. Align Technology has posted many quarters worth of record sales, and theres still plenty of room for further growth, from international opportunities and from the companys potential to treat more severe kinds of teeth misalignment. You might jump back in if you believe in its future growth „ but, of course, do your own research first. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Align Technology.) Splits, Sales and TaxesQA stock I own split 3-for-1. How do I figure my taxable gain when I sell the shares? „ L.L., Syracuse, New YorkAImagine that you bought 100 shares for $24 (initial cost: $2,400) and they were trading at $30 before the split, for a total value of $3,000. The split gives you three shares for each one you own, so post-split, youll own 300 shares, worth a third as much ($10 each), for a total of ... $3,000. Not much has really changed. For tax purposes, the cost basisŽ of your purchase, which was $24 per share pre-split, is now a third of what it was: $8. But if you sell, your capital gain will be the same as it was pre-split. For example, selling now, your gain would be around $600 „ your $3,000 in sale proceeds (less your brokerage commission cost) minus your $2,400 purchase price (plus your commission cost). When a stock is split, dividends per share, earnings per share and other figures based on share count all get adjusted accordingly. ***QIs buy and holdŽ the best way to invest? „ H.M., onlineAWe prefer to think of it as buying to hold, because while you might aim to hang on forever, you should keep up with your holdings regularly „ hanging on as long as they remain healthy and growing, or selling if their prospects change. Many investors have gotten rich holding shares of great companies for decades, through ups and downs, but you should never just buy a stock and then blindly hold it for years. Superinvestor Warren Buffett has said that his favorite time to sell is neverŽ „ but that doesnt mean he hasnt sold stocks.Want more information about stocks?

You might consider the Roth options for their potentially massive tax breaks. Like other IRAs and 401(k)s, Roth varieties let you accumulate money for retirement and enjoy some tax advantages at the same time. While traditional IRAs and 401(k)s are taxdeferred, permitting you to contribute pre-tax dollars, Roth accounts are designed to be tax-exempt and accept only already-taxed dollars. Imagine that beginning at age 40, you invest $5,000 of your post-tax income into a Roth IRA each year, and earn an 8 percent annual return for 25 years until you retire at 65. Your account would then contain almost $400,000 „ which you could withdraw in retirement tax-free. If those investments had been made in a regular IRA, youd owe taxes on any withdrawals, paying around 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

I moved in with him a few months back, and things have been very good between us. I know hes The One, and Id marry him right now if hed ask. My problem is his roommate, Ryan.Ž Mason has hinted about a proposal in the near future, which is something I used to want until recently, when I brought up a concern of mine about his roommate. Ryan has lived with Mason for more than 10 years. Ryan is a grown, healthy man who hasnt had a regular job during the entire 10 years hes lived with my boyfriend. Mason says he depends on Ryans $500 monthly rent payment to keep up with the lifestyle hes used to having. I want to go further in our relationship without a third person, but when I brought it up, I was made out to be the bad guy and accused of not liking Ryan „ which I consider a red ag. Would it be unfair to break up with Mason because hes so fond of „ and dependent upon „ his longtime friend/ roommate and the $500 rent? I dont want to give him an ultimatum. I adore him and wish he was as fond of me as he is his roommate. I want us to depend on each other and experience life like a normal couple without a third party. We both work, and Im starting to resent Ryan, who I feel has no intention of moving on. Should I move out and walk away because I nd it weird? „ BAD GUYŽ GIRLFRIEND DEAR B.G.G.: Before moving out and walking away, have another discussion with Mason. Ask him if he envisions a future with all three of you in it, and what that means. And while youre at it, ask him why he feels he needs Ryans $500 since both of you are working and there should be no reduction in his lifestyle if Ryan moves out. In fact, there should be an improvement if you split all the bills. If Mason still cant agree to part with Ryan, then move out and walk away because hes already taken. DEAR ABBY: My mother has dementia. My sister came to visit. The day after she left to return to Georgia, I noticed a picture was missing from the wall. When I called and asked her about it, she said it was her inheritanceŽ and Mom had given it to her a long time ago.Ž I think it was stealing. Mom has no idea its gone. What do you think? „ THROWN IN MICHIGAN DEAR THROWN: If it wasnt theft, your sister would have discussed it with you before she took the picture rather than disappearŽ the item. However, in the interest of family harmony, its important to carefully pick your battles. I wish you had mentioned who will be in charge of your mothers estate after her death. Because you live closer to her, I assume it will be you.

A friend will buy the other half. The partnership will buy very expensive old masterpieces, and Ive included the partnership papers for your review. Two other people we know are also investing and have checked out the general partners. What can you tell me, good or bad, about this? „ TS, Oklahoma City Dear TS: Itll be obvious from my answer that I know very little except that this is a leveraged partnership in which the general partners can borrow money using the masterpieces as collateral. Leverage can be dangerous. The big problem with most new Joe Billionaires, those who hopscotch from St. Moritz to Monaco to London, is theyre bored. They have too much money and need to “nd a place where they can be noticed spending it and earn bragging rights. Any billionaire can buy a Lamborghini, a Park Avenue apartment or a monster 300-foot yacht. Thats so plebeian. If your ego really needs stroking and you need to announce your ascendency to the altar of the superrich, your public relations adviser might counsel you to buy a van Gogh or a Warhol for a ghastly sum. Buying something thats as utterly useless as a Pollock or a Rothko is like lighting a Cuban cigar with a $100 bill. Most of the superrich need to light those cigars in public, but there are a few „ such as Joe Jamail, Philippe Kahn, B. Wayne Hughes and James Dyson „ who would light it in private or dont even care for cigars. During the “rst half of this year, Sothebys of”oaded $4.5 billion of art belonging to the superrich. During the second half, stuff by Munch, Picasso, Matisse and Kahlo needs to be sold, and Sothebys is hoping other superrich buyers will be dumb enough to write even bigger checks. In my opinion, theres nothing resembling art in their globs of paint. Real art is Michelangelos Moses, a painting by Rockwell, Daniel Chester Frenchs Lincoln Memorial and The Kiss,Ž by Rodin, certainly not the nightmarish hallucinations of Picasso, Dali and Munch. David Hockneys Paci“c Coast Highway and Santa Monica,Ž which recently sold for an absurd $28.5 million, could have been painted by my daughter when she was 10. And Modiglianis sterile, reclining nude for which some sucker recently paid $157.2 million is less art than fart. In 49 to 71 minutes, some street artists could reproduce a Modigliani nude, and most superrich buyers couldnt tell the difference. In 43 to 69 minutes, a good street artist could reproduce Munchs The ScreamŽ in such a way that, after proper baking and caking, an experienced curator would have trouble telling the difference. Art prices are a scam because there are no parameters for determining value. And two art limited partnerships with which Im familiar are in trouble. Several years ago, both LPs took in respectable millions in capital. But they leveraged their portfolios using previously purchased pieces as collateral. They borrowed heavily to purchase other pieces considered investmentqualityŽ (whatever that means). But those pieces, purchased a few years back, havent risen much in price, and several banks are demanding that their overdue loans be repaid. This has forced the two partnerships to quietly discharge some of their debt in exchange for some pieces in their portfolios. The lawyers are the only folks making money here. If you can afford the loss and know the risks, I dont mind saying, Have at it.Ž Your investment would allow you to hobnob with the glitterati, smoke a joint with Andreas Gursky, score An artful partnership „ is it a scam or Investment?some heroin with Sting and do some quaaludes with Madonna. You might even make a pro“t if, in a few years, the general partners could “nd other enthusiastic suckers willing to pay more than $4.5 million for McCarthys Tomato HeadŽ or $7 million Fischers lamp and bear. Cheese and crackers got all muddy, what crap. Ive given you the phone number of an attorney who has a magic Rolodex and knows all about this stuff. I dont know the general partners of the LP youre considering. However, this lawyer does. Please ring him. He is expecting your call and wont charge you a centime for your call. He says the general partners are inexperienced outliers whore unfamiliar with success.Ž Email Malcolm Berko at MalcolmBERKOC By GISELA SALOMON and CLAUDIA TORRENSASSOCIATED PRESSMIAMI „ Armando Tabora desperately wants to get his teenage daughter out of the government detention facility where she has been for more than three months. He has been stymied at every turn. The Florida landscaping worker took the bold step of going to a government of“ce to submit “ngerprints and other documents required for immigrants to get their children out of government custody „ and now that information is being shared with deportation agents. He was then told that the woman he rents a room from would also need to submit “ngerprints, something she refused to do. He then sought out friends who are here legally to help him out, to no avail. I dont know what to do,Ž said Tabora, an immigrant from Honduras who has lived more than a decade in the shadows without being detected. My daughter is desperate, crying. She wants to get out of there.Ž The drama of parents being separated from their children at the border dominated the headlines this year, but thousands of immigrant families are experiencing a similar frustration: the increasing hurdles they must surmount to take custody of sons, daughters and relatives who crossed the border on their own. The Trump administration has imposed more stringent rules and vetting for family members to get these children back as part of an across-the-board hardening of immigration policy. As a result, family members are struggling to comply with the new requirement, keeping children in detention longer and helping the number of migrant kids in government custody soar to the highest levels ever. Federal of“cials insist the policies are about ensuring the safety of children. More than 12,000 children are now in government shelters, compared with 2,400 in May 2017. The average length that children spend in detention has increased from 40 days in “scal year 2016 to 59 in “scal year 2018, according to federal data. The requirements include the submission of “ngerprints by all adults in the household where a migrant child will live. These sponsors „ the term the U.S. uses for adults who take custody of immigrant children „ are also subject to more background checks, proofs of income and home visits, lawyers say. And this information will now be shared with Immigration and Customs Enforcement „ something that did not occur in the past. ICE said this week that the agency has arrested 41 sponsors since the agencies started sharing information in June. Lawyers and advocates say that change has had a chilling effect because many family members live in the country illegally and have been deterred from claiming relatives for fear they will be deported. They are saying: We are going after the people trying to take care of them (children),Ž said Jen Podkul, director of policy at Kids in Need of Defense. The government has long required families to go through some vetting to serve as sponsors. The issue has become more prevalent in the last “ve years when tens of thousands of unaccompanied children from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras started coming across the border. Since October 2014, the federal government has placed more than 150,000 unaccompanied minors with parents or other adult sponsors who are expected to care for the children and help them attend school while they seek legal status in immigration court. Under Trump, the rules have been toughened in what the administration says are necessary steps to keep children from ending up in the homes of people with criminal records and other issues that could endanger kids. If somebody is unwilling to claim their child from custody because theyre concerned about their own immigration status, I think that de facto calls into question whether theyre an adequate sponsor and whether we should be releasing the child to that person,Ž Steven Wagner, acting assistant secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families, said when the policy was announced in May. The issue of sharing information with ICE arises because children and adult immigrants are handled by separate federal government agencies. Children are in the custody of the Health and Human Services Departments Of“ce of Refugee Resettlement, while adults are handled by ICE.Parents face tougher rules to get immigrant children back AP PHOTOIn this Friday, Aug. 3, photo, Nahun Eduardo Puerto Pineda, then 8, holding envelope, from Honduras, poses for a photo with his mother, Eilyn Carbajal, and two siblings after being reunited with them at the Cayuga Center, in New York. By GARY D. ROBERTSON, MARTHA WAGGONER and ALAN SUDERMANASSOCIATED PRESSBLADENBORO, N.C. „ Travel remained dangerous Saturday in southeastern North Carolina, where the governor warned of treacherousŽ ”oodwaters more than a week after Hurricane Florence made landfall, and urged residents to stay alert for ”ood warnings and evacuation orders. Gov. Roy Cooper said nine of the states river gauges are at major ”ood stage and four others are at moderate stage, while parts of Interstates 95 and 40 will remain underwater for another week or more. Emergency management of“cials said residents whose homes were damaged or destroyed will begin moving into hotel rooms next week. Hurricane Florence has deeply wounded our state, wounds that will not fade soon as the ”ood waters “nally recede,Ž Cooper said. South Carolina also has ordered more evacuations as rivers continue to rise in the aftermath of a storm that has claimed at least 43 lives since slamming into the coast more than a week ago. The small farming community of Nichols, South Carolina, about 40 miles from the coast, was completely inundated by water, Mayor Lawson Batter said Saturday. He called the situation worse than Matthew,Ž the 2016 hurricane that destroyed almost 90 percent of the towns 261 homes. Battle said ”ooding from Florence has wiped out the 150 or so homes rebuilt afterward. Its just a mess,Ž said Battle, who was awaiting a visit from Gov. Henry McMaster. We will try everything we can to come back ... but we need to have federal and state help.Ž Benetta White and David Lloyd were among 100 people rescued with helicopters, boats and high-wheeled military vehicles during a six-hour operation in southeastern North Carolinas Bladen County that lasted into Friday morning „ their second evacuation in a week. White and Lloyd, who live in the North Carolina town of Kelly, were given little time Thursday night to evacuate when the Cape Fear River came rushing onto their property. By the time they loaded their van, they had to slog through waist-high, foul-smelling water to get to a neighbors pickup. From there, they went to the towns “re department and were taken by an Army truck to a shelter at a Bladen County high school. We had to evacuate again, all over again, and got trapped in a bunch of water and almost lost our lives,Ž said White. In Wilmington, where Hurricane Florence made landfall and which had been cut off by ”oodwaters, of“cials said theyd identi“ed three safe routes into town. They encouraged people to avoid travel in areas where the risk of ”ooding remains. North Carolina Emergency Management Director Michael Sprayberry said Saturday that eastern counties continue to see major ”ooding, including areas along the Black, Lumber, Neuse and Cape Fear rivers. The Cape Fear river is expected to crest Sunday and remain at ”ood stage through early next week. He said residents who register with the Federal Emergency Management Agency can begin moving into hotels Monday. The program initially will be open to residents in nine counties, then will be expanded. A FEMA coordinator said about 69,000 people from North Carolina already have registered for assistance. North Carolina environmental of“cials said theyre closely monitoring two sites where Florences ”oodwaters have inundated coal ash sites The state is using drones to get photos and video of a dam breach at the L.V. Sutton Power Station in Wilmington, where gray muck has been seen ”owing into the Cape Fear River, and at the H.F. Lee Power Plant near Goldsboro, said Michael Regan, secretary of the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality. He said Saturday that the video and photos show sand and potential coal ashŽ leaving the Sutton site, and the DEQ will put people on the ground when it is safe. He said that DEQ staff has seen that coal ash left the basin and entered ”ood waters at the H.F. Lee plant, and is trying to determine how much of that, if anyŽ has entered into the Neuse River. In Conway, South Carolina, water from the Waccamaw river began ”owing into a Santee Cooper ash pond. The company said in a statement that the overtopping occurred Saturday morning, but no signi“cant environmental impact was expected because nearly all of the ash had been excavated from the pond.Travel still dangerous in flooded areas of North Carolina AP PHOTOA swift recuse boat motors through ”oodwaters in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence in Nichols, S.C., Friday.

C4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | September 23, 2018 By JOSH BOAKAP ECONOMICS WRITERWASHINGTON „ U.S. sales of existing homes were unchanged in August, as a shortage of houses priced at less than $250,000 „ a level considered to be affordable for the middle class „ has become a drag on the real estate market. The National Association of Realtors said Thursday that homes sold last month at a seasonally adjusted annual pace of 5.34 million. Existing home sales have fallen 1.5 percent during the past 12 months. Price gains are moderating, and the total number of sales listings is increasing, a marked change from roughly three years worth of annual declines in inventory. But the sales momentum is increasingly concentrated on homes worth more than $500,000, while sales of homes worth less than $250,000 have tumbled over the past year. Still viewed as a foundation for the U.S. middle class, home ownership has become a challenge for many Americans as prices have been rising at a faster pace than incomes for roughly the past “ve years. The relative robust job market has boosted demand over the past year, yet borrowing costs have shot up and created affordability pressures that are relegating many would-be buyers to the sidelines. A strong economy is no longer enough to prop up home buying demand,Ž said Cheryl Young, a senior economist at the real estate company Trulia. Home buyers are sensing that the market is near or at an apex and many are pulling back to see when prices may “nally begin to tip in their favor.Ž There were 1.92 million existing homes for sale at the end of August, up from 1.87 million a year ago. The median sales price in July increased 4.6 percent from a year ago to $264,800. Home prices are no longer climbing as quickly as they did in 2017 and 2016, although the gains are still greater than average wage growth. Sales rose last month in the Northeast and Midwest, but they fell in the South and West. Nationally, there has been a 1.7 percent decline in the sale of homes priced between $100,000 and $250,000 in the past year. But the sale of homes worth more than $1 million has jumped by 11.8 percent, a sign that the greater concentration of wealth among the top sliver of households is reshaping how the U.S. housing market operates. Higher mortgage rates also appear to be a drag on sales. This week, the average 30-year “xed-rate mortgage charged an interest rate of 4.65 percent, according to mortgage buyer Freddie Mac. The average has jumped from 3.83 percent a year ago because of the solid economic growth, rising government debt and intensifying showdown between China and the United States on trade, said Sam Khater, Freddie Macs chief economist.US home sales were flat in August COURTESY PHOTOIn this July 31 “le photo, a sign shows a house sold in North Andover, Mass. On Thursday, Sept. 20, the National Association of Realtors reports on sales of existing homes in August.PHOENIX „ A home is typically an individuals greatest investment. While house hunting can be exciting, its critical that buyers consider hidden costs that arent included in the homes sale price. Jumping into home ownership unprepared can be the start of a “nancial downfall,Ž said Mike Sullivan, a personal “nance consultant with Take Charge America, a national non-pro“t credit counseling and housing counseling agency. Owning a home goes far beyond paying the mortgage and utilities each month. New homeowners should conduct research to ensure they are “nancially prepared.Ž Sullivan offers “ve “nancial considerations for potential homeowners: 1. Calculate real cost of home ownership. A home comes with additional costs on top of the mortgage, including maintenance, utilities, property taxes, insurance, homeowners association fees, landscaping, moving and more. Before you begin house hunting, calculate the estimated costs of these items to get a realistic picture of monthly expenses. 2. Consider your “nancial health. Many people drain their savings to cover a down payment, leaving minimal funds for emergencies, which can result in increased debt once they move in. If you have excessive debt, a low credit score, no emergency fund or struggle with budgeting, work on improving those areas “rst. 3. Tally what you can realistically afford. Many people end up house poor,Ž pinching pennies in other areas of their life because they purchased a larger house than they could afford. Its generally advised that the sum of your monthly mortgage and related housing costs shouldnt exceed a third of your income. When coupled with other debts, such as a car or student loan payment, total costs shouldnt exceed 40 percent. Determine the amount of space you need and utilize online “nancial calculators to create your budget. 4. Get pre-approved for a mortgage. Lenders offer pre-approval for mortgages based on your income, debt and credit history. When youre pre-approved, youre in a better position to make a serious offer on a house, and you can focus your search effectively. However, dont assume youre guaranteed a mortgage if youre pre-approved. This isnt the time to get a new job, open new credit cards or buy a car „ all of which set off red ”ags for lenders. 5. Assess your future living arrangements. Do you plan to move in the next few years, or do you want to settle down? If you dont see yourself staying in one place for more than three years, consider renting. Youll avoid the extra work and costs associated with selling your home, and you can save for whenever wanderlust strikes. Many local and state programs are available for down-payment assistance. To qualify, prospective homebuyers must meet certain criteria and complete a HUDapproved Homebuyer Education Workshop, such as the online course offered by Take Charge America. The course is ideal for anyone new to the home-buying process, covering need-to-know terminology, getting the best deal, loan documentation, avoiding predatory lenders and more. Prospective homebuyers should research available programs in their state before starting the home buying process. About Take Charge America Inc.

PAGE 31 September 23, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | C5JACK GUTTENTAG MORTGAGE PROFESSORPrevious generations, retiring with de“ned bene“t pension plans provided by employers, seldom concerned themselves with the investments that secured those plans. That was the employers problem … except when the investments turned out to be insuf“cient to make the required pension payments, when it would suddenly become the retirees problem. But that was an uncommon aberration. This generation of retirees is much more likely to depend on de“ned contribution plans, where investments are under the control of the retiree. Where de“ned bene“t plans promised payments for the retirees life span, however long that might be, de“ned contribution plans leave the retiree with a nest egg of “nancial assets, to be drawn on as the retiree, often with the advice of a “nancial advisor, considers prudent. Draw too much and you run out of money, draw too little and you needlessly impoverish yourself. Not all retirees face the challenge. Those who saved little or nothing during their working years and are wholly dependent on social security face an impoverished retirement, no matter what. t the opposite pole, those who have accumulated large amounts of assets can draw what they like without worrying about it. Spending more simply means leaving a smaller estate. The challenged retirees are those in-between, who have assets that may or may not last through their life span, depending on how carefully they are managed and how long they live. In most cases, the assets held by challenged retirees are entirely or largely common stock because over long periods, investments in common stock have yielded the highest returns. The downside of having ones nest egg in common stock is that the returns are unstable and can be negative for extended periods. Somehow, challenged retirees must “gure out how to steer themselves safely between the Scylla of impoverishment from the premature depletion of assets, and the Charybdis of unnecessary deprivation from excessive caution. To provide some guidance to that challenge, my colleague Allan Redstone has developed tables that, for a speci“ed nest egg amount and life expectancy, show the monthly draw amounts associated with estimated probabilities of nest egg depletion. The tables are based on an available database covering monthly rates of return on common stock during the period 1926-2012 and assume a constant annual in”ation rate of 2 percent. Here is an example. When retiree Jones stopped working at 64, he had a common stock nest egg valued at $1 million and a life expectancy of 20 years. The median initial draw amount, based on 733 20-year periods during 1926-2012, was $8,951. The median rate of return that made this draw amount possible was 11.3 percent. If the same median historical return experience occurs over the next 20 years, and Jones lived exactly that long, he could draw $8,951 monthly (increasing at 2 percent per year), with the last check that closed his account arriving the month he died. But there is an estimated probability of 50 percent that $8,951 will turn out to be too high and he will run out of money. If he started out drawing $6,343, which requires a rate of return of 6.6 percent, the probability of running out drops to 20 percent. To reduce the risk of running out to 5 percent, he would have to reduce the initial monthly draw to $4,178, which requires a return of only 1.9 percent. There is the additional risk that he will live past his life expectancy. Extending the period to 25 years, the initial draw with 5 percent risk would be $3,741, requiring a rate of return of 2.9 percent. The uncertainties involved in managing investments support an industry of investment advisors. They have come up with the widely cited 4 percent ruleŽ, which says that it is probably safe for a retiree to draw an amount every year equal to 4 percent of the current value of a stock portfolio. A weakness of the 4 percent rule is that the retiree does not know how much risk is involved, or the extent to which the risk would be increased by going to 4.5 percent, or reduced by going to 3.5 percent. However, the Redstone tables can “ll that gap. Applying the 4 percent rule to retiree Jones, the draw amount would be $3,333, which over 25 years carries a risk of running out of about 4 percent. Information on the probability that a speci“ed draw amount will result in the retiree running out of money does not make the process of deciding how much to draw any easier. On the contrary, basing the decision on probabilities is the dif“cult way. The easy way is to just accept the advisors recommendation. The capacity to generate a complete table of draw amounts and rates of return for a common stock nest egg of any size, organized by percentiles and periods, will be available on my website in a week or so.

SINGERQuestion: I live in a gated community with zero lot lines between houses. About 12 years ago, I asked my neighbor if he would be interested in putting a gravel path from the front to the back between our properties, as it is impossible to grow grass in this shaded area and it got muddy. His response was: Do whatever you want. I never go on that side of the house.Ž Now he decided to send a certi“ed letter telling me that part of the path is on his property, and he wants it removed, or he will consult an attorney. Do I have to remove it? „ Barry Answer: You have two issues at play here. The “rst is whether you need to remove the path from his property, and the second is where his property line is. We will address the second issue “rst. The legal concept of adverse possessionŽ states that if someone uses someone elses property under certain conditions, he or she becomes owner of the property. The reasoning behind this is that all property is supposed to be productive, and if someone takes over and works abandoned property he or she will eventually own it. To become owner of the path, your use of it would need to ful“ll “ve conditions. Possession must be hostile, actual, exclusive, open/notorious and continuous. In non-lawyer talk, this means use of the property would need to be without his permission, actually used only by you and in no way hidden for a speci“c period, usually between seven and 10 years. It is important to note that you can become owner of someone elses property only if all of the conditions are met. In your case, since he permitted you to put in the path, your neighbor will not lose his ownership of his part to you, even though you met the other conditions. Now, we will have to determine whether you need to remove the path. The short answer is no, you do not need to, but he can if he wants to. In a nutshell, your neighbor gave you a licenseŽ or permission to put the path over a portion of his property and made no requirement that you remove the gravel if he changed his mind. Since it appears he has now changed his mind, something he has the right to do, he can remove the path to his property line, plant a tree over it, or do whatever he wants with it, as long as it is within community rules. This issue is not that much different from your right to carefully prune back your neighbors tree limbs if they cross onto your property. Gary M.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ Longterm U.S. mortgage rates are up for the fourth consecutive week, with the key 30-year rate reaching its highest level since May. Costs for would-be homebuyers continue to climb. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday that the average rate on 30-year, “xedrate mortgages jumped to 4.65 percent, from 4.60 percent last week. The average rate has increased from 3.83 percent a year ago. The average rate on 15-year, “xed-rate loans rose to 4.11 percent this week from 4.06 percent last week. The primary factors driving rates higher include the strong economy, trade tensions between the U.S. and other countries, and the U.S. government stepping up sales of its debt, according to Freddie Mac chief economist Sam Khater. The expanded U.S. debt sales suppress Treasury bond prices and push their interest rates higher. The yield on the key 10-year Treasury note has been running above 3 percent, approaching a seven-year high. The yield jumped to 3.08 percent Wednesday, from 2.96 percent a week earlier. It held at 3.08 percent Thursday morning. The higher mortgage rates represent continued affordability challenges for prospective buyers „ especially “rst-time buyers,Ž Khater said. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. The average fee on 30year “xed-rate mortgages was unchanged from last week at 0.5 point. The fee on 15-year mortgages also remained at 0.5 point. The average rate for “ve-year adjustable-rate mortgages edged down to 3.92 percent from 3.93 percent last week. The fee rose to 0.4 point from 0.3 point.Average US mortgage rates rise THE ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this June 8 “le photo, a for sale sign stands in front of a house, in Jenkintown, Pa.

World Famous For the last fourteen years, funds from this event have benefitted local, national and international charitiesInformation or Ticket Purchase Prizes • Drinks • Food Fun • Raffles Parker Island, Lake Placid Lake Placid Noon Rotary WE’RE GOING ON SAFARI 863-840-1370By HomeAdvisorThe prospect of buying a home for far less than its worth and then investing in necessary renovations seems like an ideal situation. But not all home renovations are created equal. Some require a little elbow grease and others require extensive, costly repairs that should be completed only by experienced professionals. Problems with a homes foundation, roof, plumbing or electrical system, for example, should be considered a red ” ag, as they can quickly turn your dream home into a money pit. At the very least, knowing these issues are present will give you a heads-up going in, allowing you to make an informed home purchase. 1. Foundation issues The foundation is one of the most important structural elements of a home. Crumbling, ” aking, gapping and ruptures, or cracks in the foundation; buckling, sagging and sloping foundational ” oors and walls; and moisture, including stains, mold or pooling water, are signs of a problem. If you see any of these indicators, you could be looking at repair work that costs an average cost of around $4,000 (on the higher end, youre looking at closer to $11,000). 2. Roof repairs Many “ xer-uppers need roof repairs or a total roof replacement. Leaks resulting from roof damage can lead to issues like mildew, mold, structural damage and electrical problems. Inspect the roof for missing, curled, broken and buckling shingles. Homeowners report paying an average of $7,200 to replace a roof. 3. Plumbing problems Another costly area of concern can be just under the ” oors or behind cabinet doors, in the plumbing. Look for drips, water stains and slow draining for evidence of clogs, corrosion and leaks. These problems can perpetuate foundation and mold issues and lead to a high water bill or worse. Installing new pipes will cost around $1,050, and installing a new water main will cost around $1,500. This doesnt include the costs of sewer line or septic tank issues. 4. Electrical hazards Electrical problems can be dangerous if unaddressed, making them something you cant overlook. Homeowners report paying an average of $1,110 to upgrade or replace an electrical panel, and installing electrical wiring averages $1,280. Something as small as installing an outlet will cost you around $200. If your house needs a signi“ cant electrical overhaul, the cost can quickly escalate. Dont ignore electrical outlets that are hot, charred, shocking or buzzing; breakers that trip frequently; or wiring that is loose or outdated. 5. An in” ated price tag Just as important as avoiding budget-busting repairs is ensuring that you dont pay too much for your “ xer-upper property. This involves “ guring out the market value of your home, post-renovations. You can “ nd this number by looking at the real estate listings for similar-sized homes nearby. Then, subtract the renovation costs, plus 10 percent to 20 percent more for unseen repairs, from that number. This new amount should be the maximum amount you put into buying a “ xer-upper. Paying more would mean youre spending more than the house will be worth once all of your improvements are complete.

Visit homes: 5 red flags to watch forBy DAWN DELLCONTRIBUTED STORYEver had an agent deny to show you a home because you werent pre-approved for a mortgage? Its not because theyre mean, or they dont value your business. Its actually because theyre looking out for your best interests. Lets face it, shopping for a home before getting pre-approved for a mortgage is like walking into a grocery store without a wallet. You may have the desire to buy, but you lack the ability. Lets cover some basics. What is a mortgage pre-approval? In a nutshell, a mortgage pre-approval is written assurance from a lender or broker that youre able to borrow money to purchase a home up to a certain amount. Its based on the income, employment and asset documentation you supply at the time of application, in conjunction with your credit history. So lets look at the 6 reasons you should get pre-approved. 1. It carries more weight than a pre-quali“ cation.Ž A pre-approval differs from a pre-quali“ cation. With the former, the lender has actually checked your credit and veri“ ed your documentation to approve a speci“ c loan amount (usually for a particular time period such as 30, 60 or 90 days). A pre-quali“ cation can be useful as an estimate of how much you can afford to spend on your home, but its a less accurate indicator of your ability to purchase. A pre-approval always carries more weight. 2. Youll know how much house you can afford. Getting pre-approved before you begin house hunting allows you to know how much house you can realistically afford. Knowing this narrows down the options and makes the selection process more ef“ cient. Not to mention, it protects you from the unpleasant surprise of realizing the home you fell in love with doesnt “ t your budget. 3. It adds clout to your offer. In many markets, homes attract more than one offer. If the sellers are weighing one offer against another, they may lean towards the one accompanied by a pre-approval letter. Thats because pre-approvals instill con“ dence that the buyer is “ nancially capable of purchasing their home. 4. It could increase your negotiating power. In addition to strengthening your offer when compared to buyers who havent taken this step, getting pre-approved may give you the upper-hand when negotiating the price. If the homeowner is eager to sell, they may be more willing to accept a lower offer from someone theyve been assured is “ nancially capable of purchasing their home. 5. It saves time. Obtaining a mortgage is a lengthy process. Getting pre-approved ahead of time shortens the time between contract to close „ this way youre ready to proceed with “ nalizing the mortgage once youve found the home you want to purchase. 6. Without it, most agents wont work with you. Makes sense, too. Right? Think about it: when you hire an agent, he/she will invest countless hours showing you homes over the course of your house hunt. If you were in their shoes, wouldnt you want assurance that your hard work would lead to a favorable outcome for both you and your client?

C8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | September 23, 2018 By DEBBIE CARLSONTRIBUNE NEWS SERVICEDoes your bathroom need a pick-me-up? Whether you want to build a spalike experience with a complete remodel or just want to make quick changes in an afternoon, new products and technology make it easy. The 2017 Houzz Bathroom Trends Study said the average spend on a major master bathroom remodel exceeding 100 feet was $21,000, while smaller bathrooms averaged $12,500. Whether or not you have that kind of scratch to throw around, here are “ve ways to refresh your bathroom, from low-cost to luxe. 1. Swap out “xtures. On the super frugal side, replace vanity hardware, light “xtures or install new towel bars and/or toilet paper holder, said Sarah Barnard, principal of Sarah Barnard Design, a Santa Monica, Calif.-based interior designer. Add plants like orchids or ferns if you have a window. Simple touches can draw attention away from ugly spots. 2. Showerheads. With as little as $100, upgrade to a better showerhead, said Lynn Schrage, marketing manager of the Kohler store in Chicago. Even renters can install a better showerhead and replace it when they move. 3. Medicine cabinet. Have wiggle room in your budget? Lighted mirrored medicine cabinets can improve a bathroom and save space, Schrage said. Many lighted medicine cabinets can use existing electrical supplies too. Kohlers Verdera medicine cabinets and Wade Logan both have LED lighting that mimic natural daylight. 4. Bathing area. Updating the bathing/ showering space can spruce up the bathroom without making the rest of the room feel tired, Schrage said. Tom Graham, president of Revive Designer Bathrooms in Lincolnwood, said if youre not gutting the space, just replacing the shower door can make a big impact. Todays doors have more glass and less hardware for a clean look, he said, and many have water repellents added to the glass to eliminate the need to squeegee after the shower, such as the Aqua Swing from DreamLine. 5. Toilet. Graham said he gets a lot of requests for comfort heightŽ commodes, which are closer to chair height, about 2 to 4 inches higher than the standard toilet. Sleeker looks like having the water tank built into the wall, and the seat mounted to the wall are popular, he said. The wall-mounted toilets can be placed at any height, and allow for easier cleaning of the ”oor underneath, he said. Graham, Schrage and Barnard all said that theres more interest in bidet seats, combining the toilet with seats that have warming functions and sprays. Bidet seats can be added just by swapping out old toilet seats without changing the existing toilets. Several brands are available, with prices starting around $250.Easy ways to update your bathroom on any budget METRO CREATIVE IMAGESIf your bathroom needs a pick-me-up, try installing a new showerhead. CATHY HOBBSDESIGN RECIPESLighting often plays a critical role in enhancing spaces and molding moods, whether the environment is one for relaxation, sleep or work. From decorative to ambient and task lighting, many homeowners may ask: Does my home have enough light? A general rule of thumb is to try to use as much natural light as you can, whether it means adding windows or doors to a room, or making solid surfaces more transparent. Here are other nuances and lighting rules to follow to keep your space properly illuminated. 1. Decide what mood you wish to create and illuminate a room accordingly. In spaces such as bedrooms, a table lamp or a simple reading lamp may suf“ce. 2. Create multiple light sources in larger spaces. A large space may require a table lamp, ”oor lamp and a ceiling pendant. 3. Use task lighting, especially in areas such as kitchens. 4. Consider placing some of your light “xtures on dimmers. This will allow you to moderate light levels depending on the time of day. 5. Purchase “xtures that require multiple bulbs. Choosing a “xture that requires two, three or perhaps more bulbs will automatically increase the output. 6. Purchase high wattage bulbs. Not all “xtures will allow it, but when possible choose bulbs in which the output is 75 or 100 wattage. 7. Dont overdo it. Avoid a space cluttered with too many ”oor or table lamps. 8. When possible, add recessed lighting. This is always easier when building or renovating a home, but it can go a long way in creating a space that is evenly lit. 9. Opt for energy-ef“cient bulbs. 10. Try to illuminate hallways, pathways and stairwells with suf“cient light for safety.

(AP) „ Deondre Francois threw for a season-high 352 yards and two touchdown passes as Florida State used an efficient first-half offense en route to a 37-19 win over Northern Illinois on Saturday. Francois had his seventh career 300-yard day, completing 23 of 31 passes. The junior had a 78-yard touchdown pass to Tamorrion Terry and an 8-yard TD pass to Jacques Patrick. Despite using a fourth different starting lineup on the offensive line, the Seminoles generated a season-high 473 yards against the Huskies. Florida State was at its best in the first half, generating four scoring drives as the Seminoles took a 20-7 lead. The Seminoles (2-2) gave coach Willie Taggart his first win over an FBS opponent in 2018. Florida States other win came against Samford on Sept. 8. Ricky Aguayo had made just one of four field-goal attempts coming into the game but connected on three kicks „ from 50 yards and twice from 42 yards. NIUs Marcus Childers tossed a pair of touchdown passes, including a 66-yard catch-andrun to D.J. Brown. Childers also had an 11-yard touchdown run for the Huskies (1-3), who were forced to punt eight times and couldnt convert a pair of fourth-down conversions. Keith Gavin set career highs for catches (six) and receiving By BEN BAUGHSPORTS EDITORThis wasnt the “rst time Larry Taylor went to China. However, the purpose behind his most recent visit was far more impactful. His previous sojourn to the Far East, found him participating on a youth team, representing the United States against a group of Chinese teams, prior to his freshman year in high school. Those early experiences helped shape Taylor, as he went onto be recognized for his outstanding play during his high school years at North Port, establishing a series of school records, culminating with his induction into North Ports athletic hall of fame. Taylor would continue to evolve as an athlete, playing at the NCAA Division I level, realizing a number of his dreamsA mission with purposeHowever, its Taylors commitment to his passions, following the teachings of Christ and the sport of basketball that led to the creation of Vertical Vision, where he gets to share two of the largest in”uences in his life with others. The three day camp in China was conducted Aug. 7-9, featuring two sessions each day, and the reception to participate was more than expected. The “rst session was for kids 8-13, and the second was for participants 13-18. We initially thought it would be 40 to 50 kids, and we ended up having about 75 campers,Ž said Taylor. That was a great blessing. They loved it so much that By TIM REYNOLDSAP SPORTS WRITERMIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) „ NKosi Perry came off the bench to throw three touchdown passes, and Miamis defense was airtight for most of the day in the 21st-ranked Hurricanes 31-17 victory over FIU on Saturday. Travis Homer rushed 13 times for 114 yards and a touchdown, Lawrence Cager caught two scoring passes, and Miami held FIU to 31 yards on its “rst 10 possessions. Brevin Jordan also had a TD catch for the Hurricanes (3-1), who lost top receiver and returner Jeff Thomas in the “rst quarter to dehydration. CJ Worton caught a pair of fourth-quarter touchdown passes from James Morgan for FIU (2-2), which outscored Miami 17-0 and gained 139 of its 187 yards in the “nal 15 minutes. Perry came in on Miamis third series, replacing starter Malik Rosier after two scoreless possessions. He completed his “rst 10 passes, some into very tight windows, “nished 17 of 25 for 224 yards with the three scores and one interception „ and his performance means the Hurricanes will have a decision to make this week on a starter. By JOHN ZENORAP SPORTS WRITERTUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) „ Tua Tagovailoa passed for 387 yards and four touchdowns and ran for another score to lead No. 1 Alabama to a 45-23 rout of No. 22 Texas A&M on Saturday. The Crimson Tide (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) easily passed the “rst test against a ranked team. Kellen Mond and the Aggies (2-2, 0-1) couldnt put up nearly the “ght they had in a 28-26 loss to No. 3 Clemson. Tagovailoa completed 22 of 30 passes before leaving after Henry Ruggs III took a shuttle pass 57 yards for a score late in the third. His “rst attempt went for a 30yard touchdown to a diving DeVonta Smith, and he hit tight end Hale Hentges for two more scores. Damien Harris didnt get many touches but had a 35-yard run and a 52-yard catch. We were fortunate that we made a lot of big plays on offense,Ž Tide coach Nick Saban said. We really threw the ball effectively and scored a lot of points, but we really didnt control the game. We didnt control the line of scrimmage. We struggled to run the ball offensively.Ž Mond completed 16 of 33 passes for 196 yards with a touchdown but was intercepted twice, including on his “rst throw. He collected 98 yards rushing despite getting sacked seven times. The SECs top rusher, Trayveon Williams, found little room to run. He gained 31 yards on eight carries.

Tellez singled in the second, hit a two-run homer in the fourth, and added an insurance run with an RBI double in the eighth. Tommy Pham and Jesus Sucre hit solo home runs for the Rays, who began the day 6 1-2 games behind Oakland in the race for the second AL wild card. Tampa Bay has eight games remaining. Toronto has won two of the “rst three of this fourgame set, rallying with a seven-run ninth inning in Thursdays 9-8 win. The Blue Jays are 5-10 against the Rays this season. Making his “fth major league start, Pannone (41) allowed two runs and six hits. He walked three and struck out “ve.

One out later, Kevin Pillar singled and scored on Reese McGuires double. Pannone gave up a two-out homer to Sucre in the seventh and left after the next batter, Mallex Smith, reached on an in“eld single.

MLB: Toronto 5, Tampa Bay 2 By DOUG FEINBERGAP BASKETBALL WRITERTENERIFE, Spain „ U.S. coach Dawn Staley knows her team is a work in progress. With a lack of training time as a group, each game is an opportunity to improve chemistry on the court. The opener against Senegal didnt start out well, with the Americans trailing Senegal by eight points before wearing the African nation down in an 87-67 victory on Saturday in the FIBA Womens Basketball World Cup. Weve had more actual games then weve had practices,Ž Staley said. Thats what you saw on the floor. Sometimes didnt look as clean as wed like it to be.Ž Elena Delle Donne scored 19 points and Nneka Ogwumike added 16 to lead the U.S. The two teams played six days ago and the Americans cruised to a 51-point victory. For the first 15 minutes in this one, Senegal was the more aggressive team. The African nation took a 10-2 lead early on much to the delight of fans who were singing and waving the countrys flag proudly. When the U.S. took a 15-12 advantage, Senegal answered with five straight points to take the lead again. The game was tied at 25 midway through the second quarter before the U.S. started to assert its dominance. The Americans (1-0) closed the half with a 20-6 run keyed by Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi to take a 14-point lead at the break. Senegal tried to hang around in the third quarter and only lost the period by three points, but it could get no closer than 15 in the final 10 minutes, when the U.S. pulled away. Senegal played a great game, came out super strong and came out super aggressive, we had to play our way through the game,Ž Delle Donne said. Like Dawn said, we have a lot of depth and the game is 40 minutes long. Were still getting used to playing together. Weve only had a couple days. We need to continue to get better.Ž The victory was the Americans 17th in a row in the tournament and 42nd in the past 43 games in the World Cup. The only blemish over the past 20 years was a loss to Russia in the semifinals of the 2006 World Cup. Bird has been a part of most of those wins. She is playing a U.S. record fifth World Cup. She has won three gold medals and could become the first player ever to win four. Bird was still wearing a mask to cover her face after breaking her nose in the WNBA playoffs. Bird and Seattle Storm teammates Breanna Stewart and Jewell Loyd showed up earlier this week after winning the WNBA championship. The Americans have had the entire team together for only a few days, and building continuity on the court will be key during pool play. In the past, the Americans have had a consistent core of players. This team has six players who got their first World Cup experience: Delle Donne, Loyd, Layshia Clarendon, Morgan Tuck, Aja Wilson and Kelsey Plum. Delle Donne played for the U.S. in the 2016 Olympics but missed the 2014 world championship because of a thumb injury. She suffered a bone bruise in the WNBA playoffs and is still recovering. Khairy Sarr Oumoul scored 18 points for Senegal (0-1), which fell to 0-5 against the U.S. in the World Cup all-time. The U.S. won the first four meetings by an average of nearly 53 points. This is a good way to boost our confidence. We can use it as a motivation,Ž Senegal coach Cheikh Sarr said.OTHER SCORESChina defeated Latvia 64-61 in the other game in the same pool as the U.S. France beat South Korea 89-58; Australia topped Nigeria 86-68; Turkey routed Argentina 63-37 and Canada beat Greece 81-50.

Winning. Woods played the most dynamic golf he has all year Saturday with six birdies in his opening seven holes to build a “ve-shot lead. He cooled from there with a few mistakes and had to settle for a 5-under 65 and a three-shot lead over Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose in the Tour Championship. He has the 54-hole lead for the “rst time since his last victory in 2013 at the Bridgestone Invitational. He has never lost an of“cial tournament when leading by more than two shots going into the “nal round, and his closing record with the lead is 42-2 on the PGA Tour. Woods has never been in better position to show hes all the way back from four back surgeries that once made him fear he might never play again. Ive gone through a lot this year to get myself to this point, and understanding and “ghting my way through it,Ž Woods said. Im certainly much more equipped than I was in March because of what Ive gone through.Ž Wood was at 12-under 198 and will be paired for the “rst time in “nal group with McIlroy on the PGA Tour. McIlroy birdied two of his last three holes for a 66. Its obviously exciting for the golf tournament. Its exciting for golf in general that hes up there,Ž McIlroy said. But for me, all I can do is concentrate on myself. The game is hard enough without looking at other people. Go out there, take care of my business, and hopefully thats good enough.Ž Rose started the third round tied with Woods, but not for long. Rose opened with two straight bogeys before battling back, but the worlds No. 1 player already was four shots behind after four holes. He narrowed the gap with a birdie on the 16th as Woods had to scramble for bogey, a two-shot swing. In some ways, it felt like a Sunday just with the energy,Ž Rose said after a 68. But I knew that it was halfway through a Saturday. Just wanted to sort of chisel a few back and give myself a chance going into tomorrow.ŽTiger Woods with 3-shot lead, now just 1 round away from winning GOLF: PGA Championship


The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018 SP Page 3 By CHUCK BALLAROSUN CORRESPONDENTNORTH PORT … The North Port High School Cross-Country Invitational has grown to become one of the biggest cross-country meets in the state, with the best runners and programs making the trek to test themselves on one of the fastest tracks around. And the track did not disappoint as local programs tested themselves against the very best. They didnt disappoint, neither. The Charlotte High School girls showed they have an elite program themselves, while several individuals placed high in the large and small school divisions. The Tarpons placed eighth out of 23 teams in the elite division as Victoria Simeone and Alexa Roughton each came home .1 seconds apart with times of 20:43, good for 37th and 38th place, respectively. The race went so fast, the next thing I knew I was finishing,Ž Roughton said. Its really awesome to race against the best of the best because it makes us more confident when we can beat those competitive teams.Ž I was hoping for a top five, but there are a lot of good teams here, probably the best competition we have had. Thats why I love these meets because we can stack ourselves up against that competition,Ž Charlotte coach Chris Robishaw said. Because of the size of the event, boys and girls races were divided into groups of elite, large school and small school. Sarasota won the girls team elite, with Parker Valby of East Lake winning the race. Belen Jesuit was the boys elite team winner, with Benjamin Hartvigsen of Sarasota the race winner. No local teams raced. In the girls large school division, North Ports girls ran to a third place finish behind the running of Alexis Smith, who placed third with a 22:01.4 time despite struggling in the middle part of the race. I started strong. I was in second place, but I died out in the second mile because I went out way too fast. The adrenaline was pumping and it got to my head,Ž Smith said. I recovered at the stretch and got passed for second at the end.Ž In the boys division, the host team placed fourth, led by Joseph Smith, who finished eighth, with a time of 17:48.5.

Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018 KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) „ Feleipe Franks threw touchdown passes to three different receivers and ran for a fourth score Saturday as Florida capitalized on six Tennessee turnovers in a 47-21 rout of the Volunteers. Four of Tennessees turnovers led to 24 points for Florida. Tennessee also gave up a safety and cost itself a touchdown by fumbling a ball out of the end zone for a touchback. Florida (3-1, 1-1 SEC) beat Tennessee (2-2, 0-1) for the 13th time in the last 14 seasons and posted its highest point total ever at Neyland Stadium. The Gators had won 43-30 at Tennessee in 1984. Tennessee has lost its last nine games against Power Five opponents since beating Georgia Tech in overtime to open the 2017 season. Franks went 9 of 18 for 172 yards with touchdown passes to R.J. Raymond, Freddie Swain and Tyrie Cleveland, whose 63-yard Hail Mary reception beat Tennessee last year.Old Dominion 49, No. 13 Va. Tech 35NORFOLK, Va. (AP) „ Blake LaRussa came off the bench to throw for 495 yards and four touchdowns to lead Old Dominion to a 49-35 upset of No. 13 Virginia Tech on Saturday in the Hokies first game at the cross-state school that restarted its football program in 2009. LaRussa entered on ODUs second series and completed 30 of 49 and ran for a score to lead the 28 1/2-point underdog Monarchs (1-3) to a stunning win over the Hokies (2-1) from the Atlantic Coast Conference. Jeremy Coxs 40-yard touchdown run with 1:34 remaining sealed the biggest win in program history. After the game, the ODU faithful stormed the field.No. 4 Ohio State 42, Tulane 6COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) „ Dwayne Haskins Jr. threw for 304 yards and five touchdowns in the first half and Ohio State routed Tulane in coach Urban Meyers return to the sideline following a three-game suspension. Haskins was nearly flawless, completing his first nine passes on the way to a 21-for-24 effort before giving way to backup Tate Martell in the second half as the No. 4 Buckeyes (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten) backed off. Meyer was back with his team after serving a suspension for his mismanagement of former assistant Zach Smith, who was accused of domestic violence and other questionable behavior while working under Meyer at Florida and Ohio State. Meyer missed the blowouts of Oregon State and Rutgers, then sat in front of his TV nervously at home as the Buckeyes pulled away from TCU in the second half last week to win 40-28.No. 8 Notre Dame 56, Wake Forest 27WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) „ Ian Book rushed for three touchdowns and threw for two more for Notre Dame. Book replaced Brandon Wimbush in the starting lineup and was 25 of 34 for 325 yards with touchdown passes covering 3 yards to Brock Wright and 7 yards to Chase Claypool, along with three short scoring runs. Book helped the Fighting Irish (4-0) more than double their season high for scoring and roll up a season-best 566 total yards. Jafar Armstrong had touchdown runs of 1 and 30 yards, and Tony Jones Jr. added a short scoring run for the Fighting Irish. Wake Forest (2-2) has lost two straight.Texas 31, No. 17 Tcu 16AUSTIN, Texas (AP) „ Sam Ehlinger passed for two touchdowns and ran for a score, all in the second half, and Texas ended a four-game losing streak to TCU in the Big 12 opener for both teams. Texas (3-1) had been outscored 153-33 the last four years by TCU and trailed 16-10 before the defense forced three turnovers by quarterback Shawn Robinson in the third quarter. A fumble recovery set up a diving touchdown catch by Collin Johnson and an interception return by freshman safety Caden Sterns to the TCU 2 set up Ehlingers scoring run one play later. Ehlingers 38-yard touchdown strike to LilJordan Humphrey with 3:18 left put the game away. The victory gives Texas its “rst three-game win streak since 2014. The Longhorns also have their “rst back-to-back wins over ranked opponents since winning three in a row in 2008, a run that vaulted Texas to No. 1 that season.No. 19 Michigan 56, Nebraska 10ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) „ Karan Higdon ran for 136 yards and a touchdown in the “rst half for Michigan, and Nebraska stumbled to its worst start since 1945. The Wolverines (3-1, 1-0 Big Ten) led 20-0 after the “rst quarter and 39-0 at halftime. The Cornhuskers (0-3, 0-1) have lost seven in a row for the “rst time since 1957. Michigan rested Higdon in the second half. Quarterback Shea Patterson played only the “rst series of the second half, giving Dylan McCaffrey an extended opportunity to play. Patterson was 15 of 22 for 120 yards with a 5-yard TD pass to Zach Gentry midway through the second quarter that put the Wolverines ahead 30-0. Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez was 7 of 15 for 22 yards with an interception and he lost 12 yards rushing.Kentuckty 28, No. 14 Mississippi St. 7LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) „ Benny Snell Jr. rushed for four touchdowns to break a Kentucky career record, including two in the fourth quarter, and the Wildcats held No. 14 Mississippi State to 56 yards rushing for a 28-7 upset Saturday night. After Tyrell Ajians 35-yard interception return to the Bulldogs 36, Snell broke left and down the left sideline for his third score with 8 minutes remaining to break Randall Cobbs previous mark of 37 total touchdowns. The junior wasnt done and added a 23yard TD run on the next possession for 21-point cushion the Wildcats (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) preserved for their second win over a ranked school this month.

NIU scored its “rst-half touchdown with the bene“t of a short “eld, starting at Florida States 23 after the Huskies recovered a fumble. Florida State: The Seminoles had 19 “rst downs in three quarters and were ef“cient, relative to the previous three games, despite losing three fumbles.

The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018 SP Page 7By RICK STROUDTAMPA BAY TIMESDefensive tackle Vita Vea made it through practice this week, his “rst since straining his left calf muscle July 29. But coach Dirk Koetter was pretty non-committal about how much, or if, Vea will play Monday night against the Steelers. When youve been out for seven weeks, conditioning indoors is different than playing football outdoors when youve got bodies around your legs,Ž Koetter said. Theres no lack of want to or anything like that. Weve got to be reasonable with how much time we give him. Well see.Ž Vea, the Bucs “rst round pick from Washington, was listed at 347 pounds when training camp began. Koetter said he did a great job with his weight and actually lost 15 pounds during his rehab. They got a bunch of different ways guys can get cardio with a boot on,Ž Koetter said. It starts off on a bike. It goes to the treadmill in the water. Theyve got this ultra-G machine. They got a lot of different things. But cardio and football are not the same thing. We could all go over to Golds Gym and see some good cardio people.Ž The Bucs are expected Monday to be without defensive tackle Beau Allen, who has not practiced this week due to a foot injury he suffered in last Sundays win over the Eagles. Thats why Vea would be a welcome addition this week and defensive coordinator Mike Smith has indicated they could utilize him in a rotation. But it sounds like it may be a game-time decision.Bucs have to be reasonable, about their plan to play defensive tackle Vita Vea TAMPA BAY TIMES PHOTOBucs defensive tackle Vita Vea smiles while watching teammates run through drills during practice in July in Tampa. By BARRY WILNERAP PRO FOOTBALL WRITERThere have been some classic games between the Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins. While Sundays meeting doesnt carry the weight of a playoff contest between two powers, it certainly brings plenty of intrigue. Such as: Are the Dolphins (2-0) really good, and are the Raiders (0-2) pretty bad? The answers will come over the next few weeks, but this could be a strong indicator of where each team is headed in 2018. Miami has been winning the field position battle, is tied for the NFL lead with five interceptions „ the Dolphins had nine all last year „ and has allowed only seven points in four red-zone possessions by opponents. Healthy QB Ryan Tannehill is 9-1 in his past 10 starts; he missed the 2017 season with a knee injury. Meanwhile, the Raiders are allowing 5.7 yards per rush, worst in the league. They are tied for last with only one takeaway and have all of two sacks. Did someone say they miss Khalil Mack? Yet the key could be when Oakland has the ball and whether it can generate anything against a defense that plays most everybody who suits up. The addition of (DE Robert) Quinn is huge,Ž says Raiders coach Jon Gruden, whose return to the sideline had Raiders fans all giddy before the Mack trade and the two defeats. He has given them supreme effort opposite Cameron Wake. And they have a very good unit inside that can generate pressure as well. Its a combination of new players, new energy and the scheme. Its fun to watch them.Ž Maybe not for Derek Carr, the quarterback who has to face them. The weekend began Thursday night with Clevelands first win in 635 days, a 21-17 home victory over the New York Jets. The No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield replaced injured starter Tyrod Taylor and sparked the Browns (1-1-1) who got two 1-yard touchdown runs from Carlos Hyde in their first win since Dec. 24, 2016. And so ends Clevelands 19game winless streak, the NFLs second-longest since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. The Jets are 1-2.Indianapolis (1-1) at Philadelphia (1-1)One of several games with tasty matchups. The Super Bowl champions get back Carson Wentz, whose major knee injury last December led to Nick Foles taking over at quarterback „ and winning the title. Wentz is healthy, which means hell play. Its been a long time coming,Ž Wentz says. Its been quite the grind of an offseason. Theres a lot of excitement, a lot of built-up almost anxiety over when it was going to be.Ž It will be against the offensive coordinator, Frank Reich, who had a big role in Wentzs quick development. Reich now coaches the Colts, who have their own star QB back from injury, Andrew Luck. Luck has thrown a TD pass in 25 consecutive games, the leagues longest active streak. The Colts are one win from 300 since moving to Indianapolis in 1984.New England (1-1) at Detroit (0-2)Matt Patricia spent 14 seasons working for Bill Belichick in New England. Rarely did he deal with what has gone on the past two weeks with the Lions. They have looked inept at times, Matthew Stafford has little protection and has thrown a leaguehigh five picks. Detroit is 30th in rushing defense, which must make defensive guru Patricia cringe. Belichick is 14-8 against former assistants. New England is 45-6 after losing a game since 2003 and didnt lose two straight in 2016 or 2017. It fell at Jacksonville last Sunday.Denver (2-0) at Baltimore (1-1)One more spicy matchup, this one on the defensive side. Led by Von Miller the Broncos seem to have rekindled the Orange Crush. He leads the NFL with four sacks, a rate that would give him a record 32. Dont bet against him. Denver has allowed only “ve third-down conversions in 22 tries, the best rate (22.7 percent) in the NFL. The Ravens rank second on D, no surprise there. But theyll likely be missing three-time Pro Bowl LB C.J. Mosley (knee).New Orleans (1-1) at Atlanta (1-1)In perhaps the toughest division, both of these 2017 playoff teams have been way too inconsistent so far. The Saints opened with two home games, losing to Tampa Bay and getting lucky to beat Cleveland. The defense was awful in the opener, the offense struggled last week. Still, they have Drew Brees, looking for his fourth straight road game with a passer rating over 100. WR Michael Thomas has 28 catches, an NFL record for the “rst two games of a season. Atlantas up-and-down nature has been partly caused by injuries, particularly on defense. Thats never a good way to approach a matchup with Brees.New York Giants (0-2) at Houston (0-2)The most watchable thing here „ if you like defenses creaming quarterbacks „ is whether Eli Manning or Deshaun Watson can escape the rush. Watson, who has terri“c agility, already has gone down seven times, and hes not come close to the sensational showings he made as a rookie before tearing up his knee. Even worse, Manning has been sacked eight times and there havent been a handful of pass plays on which he didnt feel pressure. Now, he gets to see J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney close up, with a new center, John Greco, to boot.Dallas (1-1) at Seattle (0-2)More sack time coming. In years past, Seattles defense would be knocking down quarterbacks. This version of the Seahawks has three sacks as the unit is rebuilt. Meanwhile, Russell Wilson has gone down 12 times, and considering his escapability, thats scary in Seattle. Dallas barely let Manning breathe last week, has nine sacks from eight players and faces possibly a bigger sieve of a blocking unit this week.Los Angeles Chargers (1-1) at Los Angeles Rams (2-0)Remember when LA had no teams? Now, both “gure to be contenders in their divisions. Indeed, the Rams have the most talent of any roster and are off to a powerful start. This could be a shootout. Since Week 11 of last season, the Chargers are tops in offense, averaging 436.9 yards per game. Philip Rivers has thrown three or more TD passes and has a passer rating over 100 in three straight regular-season games, and has plenty of weapons. So does Rams QB Jared Goff, particularly 2017 Offensive Player of the Year Todd Gurley. The fourth-year RB is off to another brilliant start. Its the “rst meeting between two Los Angeles NFL teams since Nov. 13, 1994, when the Raiders defeated the Rams 20-17.Cincinnati (2-0) at Carolina (1-1)Wait, the Bengals are unbeaten? Heres a real chance to prove they are legit. Cincinnati can get after the passer and will force Cam Newton to be creative. The Bengals are well rested „ they beat Baltimore on a Thursday night in Week 2 „ and DT Geno Atkins has looked super, getting three sacks and plenty of pressures. But second-year running back Joe Mixon is sidelined, and Carolina has its own dangerous RB from the 2017 draft in Christian McCaffrey. He tied WR Steve Smiths franchise record with 14 receptions vs. the Falcons. Carolina has won six straight at home.Tennessee (1-1) at Jacksonville (2-0)Jacksonville being 2-0 is no shock and the Jaguars could seize early control of the AFC South here. They showed plenty of moxie in beating New England last Sunday and hope to have top RB Leonard Fournette healthy. They havent been 3-0 in 14 years. Even though the Jags won the division in 2017, they were swept by Tennessee, helping the Titans earn a wild card. Tennessee has been very protective of its passer, whether Marcus Mariota or former Jaguar Blaine Gabbert; opponents have one sack. Getting Mariota back from an elbow injury is critical.San Francisco (1-1) at Kansas City (2-0)Its not that the Chiefs have won two straight, its how they did it. First-time starter Patrick Mahomes came out “ring and hasnt let up. He has an NFL-record 10 TD passes through the “rst two games and has not thrown an interception. Mahomes had six TD passes at Pittsburgh, making him the youngest player in NFL history to accomplish that. Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins all have 100-yard receiving games this season. San Francisco ranks 25th in pass defense and might not have the talent to get in a scoring free-for-all.Buffalo (0-2) at Minnesota (1-0-1)The betting line was so high, above 16 points all week, that it sent fans and bettors scrambling for precedent. Buffalo once was an even bigger underdog at 17 points against Miami in 1985. The Dolphins won 28-0. And 80 teams have been 16-point or more underdogs. Five of those actually won. For the Bills to even come close, they need to give raw rookie QB Josh Allen time to throw, and “nd a run defense. Minnesota comes off a depressing 29-29 tie at Green Bay in which the Vikings made a solid comeback, but then couldnt kick the ball straight enough to win. Daniel Carson is gone, replaced by veteran Dan Bailey, who was sensational with Dallas before getting hurt.Green Bay (1-0-1) at Washington (1-1)A gimpy Aaron Rodgers remains a prime threat, and he has loads of talent to catch the ball in Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison and tight end Jimmy Graham. The pass defense is far too charitable, but rookie CB Josh Jackson recovered a blocked punt for a TD vs. Minnesota. Alex Smith, the top overall draft pick in 2005 when Rodgers went 24th, now is in Washington. He has a defense ranked No. 1 against the pass, so an aerial contest with A-Rod might not develop.Pittsburgh (0-1-1) at Tampa Bay (2-0), Monday nightWith the Bucs on a roll and Ryan Fitzpatrick demolishing defenses, Pittsburgh could be in trouble. The Steelers have displayed little tackling skill and give up lots of big plays. They rank 30th against the run, a very un-Curtain number. Their offense hasnt been troubled much by star RB LeVeon Bells holdout thanks to James Conner. This also has the makings of a high-scoring showcase, especially if Ben Roethlisberger can limit his teams turnovers.Chicago (1-1) at Arizona (0-2)The Cardinals and Bears are the only founding members of the NFL still in existence. While Chicago seems to have found its way with Mack and a defense that leads the league with 10 sacks, Arizona is foundering. The Cardinals didnt cross mid“eld vs. the Rams until the next-to-last play. Sam Bradford has not thrown a TD pass, has been intercepted twice and has a 55.6 passer rating.Are Raiders that bad? Are Dolphins that good?

The camp provided not only a platform for the participants to improve their knowledge about the sport of basketball, but through Vertical Vision, they learned about the Gospel and the teachings of Christ. Its incredible what Gods doing with it,Ž said Taylor. The Chinese people love the camp so much. Theyre very appreciative when someone from another country comes to teach them something, especially something they dont know much about. Theyre also trying to understand more about the game of basketball, and how to do things the right way.ŽChinese ConnectionThe camp was arranged through an underground church in South China, said Taylor. The process wouldnt have been possible if Taylor didnt have some type of connection in the area, as the church was able to get the word out within the community. The church also has an underground school, providing an opportunity for the Chinese to learn English. The school helps prepare students who may be interested in furthering their education in the United States, exposing them to western culture as well as giving them a chance to have a better command of the English language, said Taylor. We had a lot of kids from the city, the place where we conducted the camp,Ž said Taylor. We had a lot of the kids who were involved with the school.ŽFuture endeavorsThe composition of the camp being conducted in December, should include more kids from the inner city, allowing Vertical Vision an opportunity to reach a different dynamic, said Taylor. I think were going to have more numbers because the parents love the camp so much,Ž said Taylor. They asked me if I could stay another week to run another camp. Theyre loving it (the camp) so much. It was pretty spectacular to see the response. My guy has a whole plan, and hopefully this summer, well be doing almost like a Vertical Vision tour in China, where well be able to run a camp in Hong Kong, a city up north, one with an older feel, and also in the same city where we just ran the camp.Ž Taylor was accompanied to China, by his younger sister Hannah Taylor, who helped with the younger kids in the camp. Hannah enjoyed the experience so much, she decided to stay in China, accepting a teaching position, where she serves as an English instructor, and will help her older brother run the camps, when he returns in July.A lasting impactVertical Visions in”uence and impact were palpable, and the camps participants were grateful for the opportunity. One child in particular made an indelible impression on Taylor, a boy who was about 12-years-old came up to him during the last session of the camp, to express his gratitude in an insightful manner that belied his young age, creating a sense of awareness and understanding that resonates with Taylor, the new head basketball coach at Community Christian School. They dont say coach, they say teacher,Ž said Taylor. He said, I have a question. Do the children in America understand? and I was like, Understand what? Understand how blessed they are to have the opportunities in America. That stunned me, and shocked me in a lot of ways, just because in America, were so blessed. We take for granted the things weve had since we were born. We dont understand how valuable they are. In China, seeing kids wanting to learn English so much, and then to come up to me, and have him say, Do people in America understand how blessed they truly are? It was pretty powerful to me. Its not like this kid has ever been in America. Its not like this Chinese child has interacted with many Americans in his life. But he just knew being in America is a blessing. And as an American, you have an opportunity to do what you love. I think in China, a persons passion can be put to the side. In America, its such a blessing to be able to pursue your passion every day. Vertical Vision will be conducting a camp on Oct. 20 at First Alliance Church in Port Charlotte.

The pay increases began July 1, and associates likely noticed the difference in their paychecks Friday, July 13. In April of 2016, Seacoast Bank led the “nancial industry by implementing a living wage for its permanent full-time associates two months before J.P. Morgan Chase drew national attention when it announced a similar move. Seacoast updated its minimum wage to keep pace with the increasing cost of living. The increase in pay will be separate from merit increase considerations and will include all permanent fulland part-time associates. Seacoast Chairman and CEO Dennis S. Hudson, III maintains that paying the banks associates a living wage is the right thing to do, but there are important business reasons that support the decision, too. Since establishing a living wage in April 2016, Seacoast has grown by expanding in Orlando and West Palm Beach, entering a new market in Tampa, and adding a 24-hour customer contact center near Orlando,Ž Hudson said. Paying our associates nearly twice the state minimum wage allows us to compete for the best talent in the market as Seacoast Bank continues to grow.Ž About Seacoast Banking Corporation of Florida (NASDAQ: SBCF) Seacoast Banking Corporation of Florida is one of the largest community banks headquartered in Florida with approximately $5.9 billion in assets and $4.7 billion in deposits as of June 30, 2018. The company provides integrated “nancial services including commercial and retail banking, wealth management, and mortgage services to customers through advanced banking solutions, 49 traditional branches of its locally branded, wholly owned subsidiary bank, Seacoast Bank, and seven commercial banking centers. Of“ces stretch from Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and West Palm Beach north through the Daytona Beach area, into Orlando and Central Florida and the adjacent Tampa market, and west to Okeechobee and surrounding counties.

D2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | September 23, 2018 Women who retire when their husbands do may be giving up more wealth than they realize. Married women overall are still in their peak earning years in their 50s and early 60s, while married mens earnings are on the decline, says economist Nicole Maestas, an associate professor of health care policy at Harvard Medical School and the author of a recent study about couples income and retirement patterns. As a result, married women typically sacri“ce more Social Security wealth than married men when they retire early, says Maestas, who analyzed the University of Michigans Health and Retirement Survey of more than 20,000 people 50 and older. Social Security bene“ts are based on a persons 35 highest-earning years, so each additional year an older married woman works could replace an earlier year when her income was lower or she took time out of the workforce „ for instance, to raise children. Because older married men are typically past their peak earning years, the same is not true for them, Maestas found. But women do typically retire at the same time as their husbands, Maestas says. Since women in heterosexual couples typically marry men two or three years older, that means married women leave the workforce at younger ages.Women face extra risksEarlier retirements also mean less time to save for retirements that can stretch decades. That should give women pause, says Jean Setzfand, senior vice president of programs for AARP. We live longer. We spend more years in retirement. There are more years we have to consider “nancing,Ž Setzfand says. Womens longer life expectancies mean theyre likely to outlive their husbands, and theyre at greater risk of outliving their savings. Women are 80 percent more likely than men to live in poverty after age 65, according to the National Institute on Retirement Security. Social Security checks, if theyre big enough, can be a powerful antidote to late-in-life poverty. Social Security bene“ts cant be outlived, reduced by stock market downturns or stolen by fraudsters, Maestas notes.Delay social security, if not retirementPeople dont have to claim Social Security when they retire, although many do. Thirtynine percent of women and 35 percent of men in 2017 “led at the earliest age, which is 62, according to the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College. That locks them into checks that are signi“cantly smaller than if theyd waited a few years. Bene“ts rise by about 7 percent each year between age 62 and full retirement age, which is currently 66. After that, checks increase by 8 percent each year until bene“ts max out at age 70. A $1,000 monthly bene“t at 62 could be over $1,300 at 66 or over $1,700 at 70, even if someone stops working. No other investment can offer that kind of guaranteed return, which is why planners often encourage their clients to tap other retirement funds if that allows them to delay claiming Social Security.Its not just about moneyFinancial considerations are just one part of the decision, “nancial planners say. Couples also have to consider the emotional and psychological issues of retiring together or apart. The beginning of retirement is an exciting time, and many couples enjoy starting that journey together,Ž says Stephanie Mushna, a certi“ed “nancial planner in Grand Rapids, Michigan. People approaching retirement age are often keenly aware that their time on earth, and their good health, wont last forever. That can make it harder to stick it out, especially if its at a job they dont like. But working even a year or two longer can have a dramatic impact on the viability of a couples “nancial plan and the amount they can spend in retirement, planners say. Other options are stepping down to a lower-stress job or one with more ”exibility. Instead of traveling full time with a retired spouse, wives may be able to schedule some extended vacations, Setzfand suggests. That assumes, of course, that women can “nd such jobs. Many of the women who will be most dependent on Social Security may be locked into jobs with little ”exibility, she notes. Health concerns and caregiving for family members also can push women out of the workforce earlier than they expect. Maestas understands that not every married woman wants or will be able to keep working, but she hopes her research will at least prompt couples to discuss their options. It often does make sense to at least delay claiming Social Security,Ž Maestas says. But theres not really one right answer for everyone.ŽHow women who retire with their husbands often lose outNERD WALLET Liz Weston dsf CHECK OUT THESE GREAT LISTINGS OPEN HOUSES TODAY € SEPT.23 RD (863) 808-1356 3609 Sebring Parkway Sebring, FL 33870 Our Colors Are Red & White, But Our Service is PURE GOLD!! d s f $21,9002/2 Open floor plan, partially furnished, loads of cabinet & storage space.

She said she has owned businesses that include dog grooming, massage therapy and a courier service. I really like people, and I wanted to have something that was fun to do,Ž she said, noting that she had been wanting to have a restaurant for a while. Sutter said she and Hamann had been working for other people and wanted to start a business together. Sutter said she was considering a gaming place with a pool table and different games for the younger crowd to come do because there is hardly anything to do in this area.Ž That was kind of what started my thoughts is that I wanted to have a fun place for people to come to,Ž she added. Sutter is planning to set up speed dating in the cafe in which people will have an opportunity to meet and talk with others for a few minutes and possibly go out at some point. She said she doesnt believe it is being done here now and instead of having to travel out of the area it will allow people to meet those who are local residents. It is very hard to “nd somebody when you are single,Ž she said. She wants to hold speed dating on Wednesday nights. I want to do it in groups, age brackets, ... so people can meet people around their age ...,Ž she said. Sutter wants to let bands play on weekends.

Sutter eventually wants to put some tables outside and possibly hold birthday and wedding parties. Lake Glenada is located behind the cafe. Sutter is hoping to attract students from South Florida State College to the cafe. I want it to be a hangout,Ž she said. Thats really what I want.

We have a lot of unique painting and ”ooring challenges and the teams at Rust-Oleum and SealKrete High Performance have already helped us identify solutions.Ž For more than 35 years Seal-Krete has been the professionals choice in weatherproo“ng, protecting and high-performance coatings for concrete and masonry. Sebring International Raceway is one of the most historic racing facilities in the world, and Rust-Oleum and SealKrete High Performance provide products that are designed for facilities that are subjected to a harsh climate year-round,Ž said Lyle Allen, vice president of sales for Rust-Oleum. Matt and his team need solutions to combat the sun and moisture that Sebring experiences, and we know we have unmatched products that can exceed their needs.

ROSENBERGThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Although Soyini Chan-Shue easily delegated work to police of“cers when she was a sergeant in the New York City Police Department, it was hard to relinquish tasks to employees of the security “rm she now owns. The key difference for her? Chan-Shue worked in an NYPD of“ce that formulated policy and she was part of a chain of command. At her own company, shes the one in charge. It can be nerve-wracking to give my staffers the autonomy to make decisions I formerly made, but I realized that I cant effectively grow my business if I dont,Ž says Chan-Shue, CEO of City Safe Partners in New York. When a business is large enough that the owner must delegate decisions and tasks „ even to trusted employees „ it can be a psychic shock, especially for entrepreneurs used to doing everything themselves. Many pale at the idea of asking managers and top staffers to take on critical responsibilities like prospecting for and dealing with customers, hiring new workers or overseeing production. Beyond taking pride in being a superhero owner, they fear what might happen if a staffer makes a costly mistake. Greg Galant remembers feeling a mixture of terror and prideŽ as he gave his staff more responsibility at his company, Sawhorse Media, whose business includes Muck Rack, a website for journalists and public relations professionals. You feel like you are the business, and now youre letting someone else do the business unchecked,Ž he says. The New York-based company has grown to more than 40 staffers since Galant and business partner Lee Semel founded it in 2009. Galant realized early on that the company wouldnt be able to expand that way unless he turned over some tasks to employees. Among them: maintaining the companys books and monitoring website traf“c.Delegate, delegate? Its not so easy, business owners say THE ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this Sept. 7, 2018, photo Soyini Chan-Shue poses for a portrait at City Safe Partners oce in New York. Although Chan-Shue easily delegated work to police ocers when she was a sergeant in the New York City Police Department, it was hard to relinquish tasks to employees of the security rm she now owns.

PAGE 49 September 23, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | D5General Motors recalls some pickups and SUVs over brakesDETROIT „ General Motors is recalling about 41,000 pickup trucks and police sports utility vehicles because of loose brake pedals. The recall covers 2015 through 2016 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks, Chevrolet Silverado 1500 special service pickup trucks and some Chevrolet Tahoe sports utility vehicles made for police departments and other government agencies. GM says the brake pedal pivot nut may loosen. A driver could be unable to stop the vehicle if the brake pedal is loose or inoperative. The company says it will “x the problem free of charge by having dealers add adhesive to the nut and reinstall it with increased tightness. It plans to notify vehicle owners but hasnt said when. The company hasnt said if the problem has caused any crashes or injuries.Some Bob Evans sausage links recalled, may contain plasticXENIA, Ohio „ The Agriculture Department says Bob Evans Farms is recalling nearly 47,000 pounds (21,318 kilograms) of pork sausage links because it might contain pieces of plastic. The items have establishment number EST 6785Ž and were sold in Indiana, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. The Food and Safety Inspection Service says there are no con“rmed reports of any injuries. The 12-ounce (340 gram) trays are labeled Bob Evans Maple Pork Sausage Links, Brown Sugar and Honey, Fresh from Meijer Maple Flavored Sausage Links or Giant Eagle Maple Pork Breakfast Sausage Links Caramel Color Added. All have a lot code of 8213. The sausage should be thrown out or returned to place of purchase.GM recalls 1.2M pickups, SUVs for power steering problemDETROIT „ General Motors is recalling 1.2 million big pickup trucks and SUVs mainly in North America because of power-assisted steering problems that have been cited in a number of accidents. GM says the power steering can fail momentarily during a voltage drop and suddenly return, mainly during low-speed turns. Such a failure increases the risk of a crash. The company says it has 30 reports of crashes with two injuries, but no deaths. The recall covers certain 2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 pickups as well as Chevy Tahoe and Suburban SUVs. Also affected are 2015 Cadillac Escalade and GMC Yukon SUVs. Dealers will update the power steering software at no cost to owners. No date has been set to notify customers, but GM says the software is available now, so owners can contact dealers to schedule repairs. More than 1 million of the trucks are in the U.S., and most of the rest are in Canada and Mexico. Theres a small number in other countries. GM recalled 2014 model year trucks last year for the same problem.RECALLS Bus i nesses & Se rvi ces 5000 BUSINESS SERVICES 5002 GENERAL SERVICES S & N Affordable Lawncare And Landscaping Inc.Weeding Trimming Hedging Mowing Planting GardeningDesign Mulching & More!Residential & Commercial Cleaning863-214-8748 F i n d i t i n t h e C l a s s i f i e d s Find Your Local Business Here!Hire your next Small Business from our Directory!
