NEWS WIREGood morning To Tom Nicholls Thanks for reading! newssun.com facebook.com/ newssuntwitter.com/ TheNewsSunThe Highlands News-Sun will begin implementing strategic changes in our quest to make more effective use of space in our newspaper. The changes are being made due to the recent repackaging of the regional Sports section provided by Sun Coast Media Group. The consistent change will be the elimination of the current regional Sports section. The regional and state sports section that we are getting now does not provide enough of what we are looking for, so we are dedicating space to provide more state sports coverage. Your weather map, Lottery numbers and Live on TV sports listings will be found in the revamped sports pages. The expanded sports section on Mondays will continue to be found in this section. Your Highlands Health section remains chock full of medical-related stories and columns from many local health experts. Changes will be made to each daily edition with the exception of SundayÂs paper, which will be unchanged. Please refer back to this space every day this week to see how the dayÂs edition will be different next week. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Executive Editor Romona Washington at 863-386-5634.Changes coming to Highlands News-SunBy MARC VALEROSTAFF WRITERAVON PARK Â„ Approving the Â“nal budget and Â“nal millage rate for the the 2018-19 Â“scal year will be among the administrative actions the Avon Park City Council will consider at itÂs regular meeting tonight.

By MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERSEBRING Â„ Maureen Cool, a RE/MAX real estate agent, faced her battle with breast cancer without giving up her dream of maintaining her status of being one of the top real estate agents in sales for Highlands County. ÂOver the years IÂve had many friends who have had breast cancer and they have all handled it differently,ÂŽ Cool said. ÂFor some, nothing was ever right after their diagnosis. I didnÂt want to be that person. ÂI wanted to be the person who went through it and put it all behind me,ÂŽ she said. ÂI didnÂt want it to change my life. I wanted to keep as much normal in my life as possible as I went through the experience. ÂI have a family history of breast cancer,ÂŽ Cool said. ÂMy mom had breast cancer and she was a 10-year survivor. I watched how she went through it, and I couldnÂt believe how well she did it.

She had to take chemotherapy treatments as part of her cancer treatments. By PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERSEBRING Â„ Road and Bridge crews have started laying pavement on Sebring Parkway Phase III. The Â“rst layer, which started to be installed last week, should help preserve the road bed that crews have already established, said County Engineer Clinton Howerton Jr. They put pavement down in the area of the road behind Crystal Lake Club in south Avon Park. Howerton said Friday, while touring the route, that the pavement should help cut down on any dust stirred up by drainage work along that stretch. Homes from Scenic Highway north past the Crystal Lake Club and Lake Denton areas have the roadway immediately at the edge of their backyards. ÂWe are sympathetic to their situation,ÂŽ Howerton said, referencing residents who complained or had concerns about the roadÂs proximity. A hedgerow, planted by Crystal Lake residents 10 years ago, is beginning to provide some vegetative buffer, he said. ÂTheyÂve been preparing for this road,ÂŽ Howerton said. ÂItÂs been in the works for 20 years.ÂŽ After crews Â“nish their initial paving, they can complete preparations of the road bed in the remaining portions of the road, Howerton said, including around Scenic Highway, where the road route still has to be dug out and reÂ“lled with the proper layers of shell and road base. The section just north of Ben Eastman Road had to be Â“lled in quite a bit, Howerton said Friday: 10-12 inches of shell and 10-12 inches of subbase, all brought up from the county-owned borrow pit in Charlotte Parkway progressPhases II and III of Sebring Parkway moving forward COURTESY PHOTO/HIGHLANDS COUNTY BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONRoad and Bridge Supervisor Joey BarÂ“eld, left, directs workers one morning last week as they place a Â“rst layer of asphalt on Sebring Parkway Phase III behind Crystal Lake Club.

ÂShe inspired me to know I could get through this and life could be normal again Â„ my normal again.ÂŽ Cool found a small lump in her breast and called her doctor. She had made it a practice of always following up with her doctor if she found anything unusual. The last time she went in for the doctor visit, her doctor did not expect it to be cancerous, but she did a biopsy in her office because it was so close to the skin. ÂYou have breast cancer,ÂŽ my doctor said. ÂI donÂt know how you even found this so soon. It was a miracle that you found the lump because it was so small.ÂŽ Cool found the lump only days before Thanksgiving, and she received that fateful call on Dec. 1, 2016 telling her she had cancer. ÂBefore Christmas, I had to go get an MRI and consult with a plastic surgeon to coordinate surgery for a double mastectomy and for reconstruction,ÂŽ she said. ÂMy doctors were very caring and attentive, and I had my surgery on Jan. 4, 2017,ÂŽ Cool said. ÂI started chemotherapy in mid-March, and I finished on May 18. I went every three weeks for chemo, but I had an allergic reaction to it. The doctors had to switch me to a different drug.ÂŽ ÂHaving support of family and friends is very important,ÂŽ Cool said. ÂI had the most amazing caregiver, my husband and best friend, Carl. He was always there for me every step of the way, every surgery, every treatment and every trip back and forth to Tampa. He stood beside me through my ups and downs. ÂI could not have done this without Carl and the support of my son Danny and all my true friends,ÂŽ she said. ÂThey were always there when I needed them most. ÂMy faith and beliefs helped me not fear the future,ÂŽ Cool said. ÂI put my trust in God and I learned to live in the moment. Today, I am cancer-free. But none of us know what tomorrow will bring. So live in the moment and enjoy life.ÂŽCOOLFROM PAGE 1A MELISSA MAIN/STAFFMaureen Cool insisted on continuing her career during her cancer treatments. She maintained her status as a top real estate agent and has achieved the status of breast cancer survivor. A giant prehistoric turtle and two tusks from a mastodon were unearthed at Highlands Hammock State Park sometime in the mid-1930s. Workmen were doing some excavating in preparation for laying a pipeline through the first orange grove near the Hammock entrance when they discovered and uncovered two excellent specimens of two fossilized and extinct mastodon tusks (of the elephant family) which they laid on the ditch bank. Supervisory personnel were called and as they were grouped around admiring the unusual find, the tusks with an almost imperceptible hissing sound, suddenly disintegrated. Later, the workmen were told that the tusks should have been given a protective coating of some material to exclude the air, immediately upon being found. The following day while the workmen were again digging, they found within a few feet of where they found the fossilized tusks, a substance which they didnÂt immediately recognize so, they called for supervisors before proceeding with the excavation. At first it looked like the fossilized remains of an animal. Since it was near the site of the disintegrated tusks. It was assumed that it might be a part of the mastodon. Mr. and Mrs. Jack Connery were recommended as persons who had knowledge of proper procedures. They took over the task of unearthing what appeared to be the fossilized remains of an animal. The ConneryÂs carefully scraped the soil off a few square inches at a time and then applied a coating of shellac to exclude the air. After hours and hours of patient and painstaking work the fossil was fully uncovered and identified as a giant prehistoric turtle measuring nearly three feet high, four feet across and five feet long. It has been estimated that when alive more than 35,000 years ago, it weighed about a ton. ÂHighlands Hammock actually had its beginning over a million years ago in the era when mastodons and other gigantic creatures roamed the countryside of what is now Florida. There are still relics of that age in evidence in the park and there are living trees still standing which were old when Columbus came to America,ÂŽ wrote Allen Alvater. Several years later in 1939, Mr. Clarence Simpson, from the office of the State Geologist, replaced the very few missing pieces of the turtle with plaster parts. Dr. Harry Ladd, geologist for the National Park Service, examined the specimen and gave his opinion that it had been a near relative of the Testudo family of land turtles, similar to turtles found on the Galapagos Islands. The prehistoric turtle shell can be seen at the Hammock Inn Camp Store located in the park. From ÂHighlands HammockÂŽ by Allen Altvater.

COURTESY PHOTOErica White will be singing at the Heartland Family Fall Festival on the center stage inside the Lakeshore Mall, an entertainment event sponsored by Florida Hospital Medical Center.County. Some of the work has had to wait for drainage easements from nearby landowners. Howerton said he obtained an easement from the owner of the Sherwood property to run storm water onto that property, toward Little Redwater Lake. While driving the road route Friday, Howerton pointed to a marshy area that led from the road bed to the lake, about two dozen yards away. He was looking at having to put in a 4-footby-6-foot box culvert to handle storm runoff at that spot, with a price tag of $200,000. Instead, the easement will allow him to set in several pipes, draining water relatively quickly from the west side of the road to the east side, toward the lake. Plus, the $100,000 he saves not buying a culvert will more than pay for the pipes and the easement. The other easement, from the owner of the Goodfellows property, will allow him to do some storm water drainage in the right of way. He reported this to the Highlands County Board of County Commission on Tuesday, along with an update on Phase II, the section from Youth Care Lane south to U.S. 27 at Highlands Regional Medical Center. Howerton said for Phase II, heÂs waiting on Â“nal plans from Sebring Utilities on where they have their lines and where to move them. He also still has ÂthingsÂŽ to get to and from FDOT, such as revisions to the trafÂ“c lights on U.S. 27, as well as some drainage issues and other details. For example, Howerton said he needs Âa bitÂŽ of right of way from the grove owner to the east to widen the road slightly and build a retaining wall, since the road will drop several yards below the surrounding land. It will involve appraising the strip of land they need, he said, before negotiating a price.PARKWAYFROM PAGE 1A Sebring Parkway Phase III, for now, has undulating hills in the area of Lake Denton. County Engineer Clinton Howerton Jr. plans to have construction crews Â“ll in the dips somewhat, to reduce the elevation change and improve road safety. PHIL ATTINGER/STAFFA pile of pipes sits along Manatee Drive, put there by Road and Bridge crews after being found under the old railroad tracks. Most of the route of Sebring Parkway Phase III follows a defunct railroad bed, said County Engineer Clinton Howerton Jr. It hadnÂt been used for almost 30 years, and no one remembered the pipes were still there. County Engineer Clinton Howerton Jr. checks a stake for a number, but doesnÂt Â“nd one. Instead, he said, heÂd have to number it from a nearby landmark. The stake is supposed to show where a landowner, who has no other outlet, has requested a driveway opening onto the parkway, Howerton said.

An investigation began Sept. 10 into an inappropriate relationship between the victim and Yair Manuel Vegas, according to a Highlands County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce report. The investigation was prompted by a Sept. 8 complaint of juvenile trouble at the victimÂs residence, the report shows. A deputy learned an argument began when the brother of the victim was Âacting outÂŽ because the victim had sex with the suspect. In screening the victim, the deputy learned that the victim did in fact have sex with the suspect. A forensic interview was conducted with the victim at the ChildrenÂs Advocacy Center, the report states. Based on the victimÂs statement, there was probable cause to charge the defendant, Vegas, with lewd and lascivious behavior on a victim 12 to 16 years old, according to the report. Vegas was released Friday from the Highlands County Jail on a bond of $50,000.AP man charged with lewd behavior with underage victim VEGASBy MARC VALEROSTAFF WRITERSEBRING Â„ A Sebring man has been charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia after the items were found on him while the Highlands County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce was serving a warrant on the suspect. Highlands County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce detectives responded to Harvest House, 4200 Kenilworth Blvd., Sebring, in regards to a warrant service on James Walter Blevins, 45, a sheriffÂs ofÂ“ce report states. Prior to arrival, it was learned the defendant (Blevins) held multiple active warrants for his arrest from within the sheriffÂs ofÂ“ce. When Blevins was placed in handcuffs, a detective observed a hypodermic needle with an orange cap on it in the defendantÂs left front pocket, the report shows. There was also a container in his pocket with a plastic bag with a substance that appeared to be methamphetamine. Also, within the container was a clear cellophane wrapper with an unidentiÂ“ed pill. Based on the information, probable cause existed to charge Blevins with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription (methamphetamines) and possession of drug paraphernalia, the report states. Blevins was released from the Highlands County Jail on a bond of $1,500.Sebring man charged with possession of meth BLEVINSMONDAY American Legion Post 25 in Lake Placid Â„ Cafe 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Chips ahoy 2 p.m. Call 863-465-0975.

We will not accept any Letters to the Editor that mention a business in a negative tone, as they have no means to defend themselves. Please keep Letters to the Editor to less than 250 words. Letters will be edited to length as well as for grammar and spelling. All letters must be signed with full name Â… not initials. An address and telephone number must be included. The phone number and address are not for publication, but must be provided. In the case of letters that are emailed, the same rules apply.

The newspaper takes no responsibility for the content of these letters. If youÂre upset about red tide, green algae, dead Â“sh and stinky air, hold onto your hat. You ainÂt seen nothing yet Â„ if the roll back to the Clean Water Act being proposed by the Trump administration passes as proposed. This newspaper rarely addresses national issues, or the elected ofÂ“cials in Washington, D.C. ThatÂs just not us. But, after speaking with a representative of the National Wildlife Federation it is obvious our stateÂs waters Â„ already under siege Â„ could be in even worse trouble. And we believe our readers need the information. A proposal made by the current administration seeks to deny Clean Water Act protections to much of our nationsÂ streams and wetlands in the lower 48 states. Some of the ideas Â„ under the heading of doing away with roadblocks to businesses and creating new jobs Â„ could destroy sensitive wetlands and streams all over the U.S., according to Jan Goldman-Carter, senior director of Wetlands and Water Resources for the NWF. Here are just some of the provisions in the rollback of rules: Â€ Developers would no longer need a permit before paving over some wetlands. Â€ Oil spills or pipeline breaks into streams and wetlands would no longer be considered a violation of the Clean Water Act. Â€ Factories and farms could discharge chemicals, pesticides or animal waste into unprotected streams without fear of consequences. Â€ States may be no longer required to clean up polluted waterways. Â€ Citizens would be denied the opportunity to sue over an agency failing to take action on Clean Water Act violations. To be fair, these are proposals. Nothing has been passed yet and wonÂt be until probably October. But, if this concerns you, itÂs time now to let your voice be heard. Goldman-Carter said the waterways that are under attack are those that Âdo not Â”ow continuouslyÂŽ 12 months a year into a connecting waterway. Most of the streams that could be impacted are in the West, where it is arid and water Â”ows can dry up in the hotter months. But, many of the wetlands that could be impacted are right here in Florida Â„as close to us as the Cocohatchee slough in Collier County. There are many wetlands in Florida that lose much of their moisture in the dry winter months. This slough is a great example. The slough is in a Â”ood plain that cleans pollutants from the water as it travels to nearby rivers and waterways. So far it has been protected against the massive development taking place east of U.S. 41. Under the proposed changes in the Clean Water Act, however, because it dries to just pockets of water in the winter, it could be developed. This order created by the Trump administration in 2017 would change the Clean Water Act ruling to only cover water that meets Justice ScaliaÂs interpretation of its jurisdiction. That is where characterizing the wetlands or streams according to how many months they are at their peak comes in. If this scaling down of the Clean Water Act passes as proposed, it could impact 2 million miles of streams and an enormous amount of wetlands. Just imagine the impact on our waterways that are fed by these streams and wetlands and the lessening of the natural Â“ltration system that cleans our water. You donÂt have to go far in Southwest Florida to see the potential problem. If this bothers you, let your voice be heard. An editorial from the Charlotte Sun.Clean Water Act revision could be disasterFirst move forward, and then what? Some laws seem to have evolved out of a preponderance of stupidity. FloridaÂs parking lot law ÂFirst Move ForwardÂŽ tops the list. Engineering Â“rm S & ME states: ÂThis safe driving technique is easily put into practice by planning ahead. When you choose a parking space in a parking lot with open ended stalls, choose one that you can pull through and park facing out so that when you exit your First Move is Forward.ÂŽ Not only does this not encourage safe driving, it is outright dangerous. This is especially so in parking lots that utilize angled parking. Cars exercising this so called safe driving technique will now emerge into the trafÂ“c lane facing the wrong direction and against trafÂ“c Â”ow. Today I am driving through Publix parking lot in a parking lot right of way and encounter a car emerging using their ÂÂ“rst move forwardÂ now suddenly facing me. They are unable to turn to join the trafÂ“c Â”ow but rather, expect me to back all the way up the lane to allow them to exit. ThatÂs not happening. Someone going after an empty spot may also Â“nd themselves in a head on collision with someone coming through unexpected. So itÂs up to me to plan ahead to Â“nd a parking spot? What guarantees the spot in front of you remains vacant? If you canÂt back up safely, you shouldnÂt be driving. Lawmakers again prove that you canÂt Â“x stupid.Warren Pender Sebring, FLSome abuse is suppressed#Me Too. I know that there is a lot of political conversation about the Kavanaugh confirmation. Republicans pushing through the confirmation hastily; Democrats creating a ÂhiccupÂŽ in the confirmation. What is being alleged is much more than a hiccup. Any person that has ever been a victim of any sexual attack or abuse will most likely affirm my experience. You donÂt forget the details of what happened. You may suppress it or parts of it because it so painful. I never spoke to anyone due to shame and questioning who would believe me, especially because he was a police officer. DonÂt feel sorry for me; I am not looking for pity. If my words can enlighten anyone to be more understanding of the complexities and difficulties of an alleged victim, I have accomplished something through my sharing. I cannot speak to Dr. FordÂs allegation. What I can say is that there is ignorance in how many people respond to an alleged victim. Why 36 years later? Maybe because it is difficult to see someone who is alleged to have violated someone being considered to receive a position on the highest court in the land. An important responsibility of a Supreme Court judge is to be an impartial decision maker in pursuit of justice. I pray that the same justice is afforded to pursue this allegation so that Judge Kavanaugh can be confirmed or denied without prejudice. ÂMyÂŽ police officer retired and died with honor. May he rest in peace.Shirley Shuman-Alegre SebringYOUR VIEW Becoming a mother was not an easy feat for me. I had to take fertility pills for years and endure a miscarriage just to get to the point that I was blessed with the two children that God trusted me to raise. I wanted more. Heck, I wanted a whole house full. That wasnÂt in the cards and I had to accept that. When children are not properly cared for, I get upset and question why. Such was the case Friday when I read the story of a New York woman who stabbed five people, including three newborns, in a New York City home being used as a neighborhood nursery. The children were 1-month-old, 20 days old and 3 days old; the other two stabbed were adults, one the father of one of the children and the other, a woman who worked there. They are all five expected to survive. The suspect, a woman, was found in the basement and taken into custody. According to the Associated Press, she had slashed her own wrists but was expected to survive. A butcher knife and meat cleaver were found on the scene, reports said. Thursday came a report from the Polk County SheriffÂs Report about the arrest of a woman who claimed to be an ER nurse who had driven her vehicle in to a retention pond in Mulberry. An 8-yearold was her front seat passenger. The child was able to get out of the vehicle as it began to fill with water. The woman too was able to exit the vehicle and make it on shore. According to the arrest affidavit, the woman told deputies she had drank three beers. She argued with sheriffÂs deputies that she was able to drive. Later she admitted to having three or four vodka drinks and fruit punch drink. After much arguing with the deputy and failing each of the sobriety tests she was given, according to the report, she was charged. Whether either of the two women is guilty will be determined by a court of law. These are only two examples of the physical and psychological damage that is being done to our children. There are also countless reports of children who are witness to the abuse of one parent or the other, most times by the other parent or a significant other. Some of the children are forced to witness the abuse. Is it any wonder that so many of the children today are confused and display their aggressions in an outward manner? Is there any wonder that so many of our children donÂt know how to behave in a social setting? No mother is perfect. Each one of has made and will make mistakes. It doesnÂt take long after the birth of a baby to become very mindful that babies donÂt come with an ÂownerÂs manual.ÂŽ What I do know is that all babies, and children, deserve to be loved. I often still wish that I had home full of children. There is nothing that puts a smile on my face faster than to hear a young childÂs voice or a babyÂs squeal, unless itÂs the voice of my own children, who are both adults now. I now understand what my own parents have always said, just because IÂm an adult doesnÂt mean IÂm not still their little one. Children deserve the best that their parents can give, whatever that may be, as long as it is done in the purest meaning of a parentÂs love.

www.highlandsnewssun.com September 24, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A7 SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNAVON PARK Â„ In high school, South Florida State College (SFSC) alumnus Ricky Sherrill, got the Â“lm bug. Now, in his senior year at the University of Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando, heÂs contemplating his future as a Â“lm editor and, possibly, director. He anticipates earning his Bachelor of Arts in Cinema Studies in spring 2019. ÂLeading up to graduation in the spring, IÂve been stressing about it,ÂŽ he said. ÂIÂd like to work with a Â“lm company, to edit. Anything to do with editing, whether itÂs for commercials or corporate videos. Eventually, IÂd like to be a Â“lmmaker and become one of the best. Right now, IÂm most comfortable with editing.ÂŽ While a junior at Sebring High School, Sherrill took his Â“rst theater production class with teacher Jeff Cantwell. ÂAt Â“rst, I thought it was going to be an easy A, just like a lot of other students. But I started taking it seriously when I discovered that I was good at editing Â“lm, directing, and being in front of the camera.ÂŽ Over time, SherrillÂs interest in making and editing Â“lms and videos soared and he put his enthusiasm to work. In 12th grade, he wrote a song for Sebring High School called ÂBlue and White.ÂŽ A teacher then asked Sherrill to create a video for the school, one that would depict the schoolÂs quality and the studentÂs school spirit. Every Â“lmmaker has been inÂ”uenced by those whoÂve gone before them, and Sherrill has a few favorites of his own. ÂI like all types of movies,ÂŽ he said. ÂIf I were to choose a favorite Â“lm director, I would say Quentin Tarantino. Recently, I watched ÂBlacKkKlansmanÂ by Spike Lee, which I really liked. I watched it by myself and absorbed it. But my favorite movie is ÂThe Pursuit of HappynessÂ with Will Smith. It had an impact on my life.ÂŽ ÂThe Pursuit of HappynessÂŽ is about a single, homeless father who struggles to create a better life for himself and his son. Sherrill said that he lives by a quote from the Â“lm: ÂYou got a dream. You gotta protect it. People canÂt do somethinÂ themselves, they wanna tell you you canÂt do it. If you want somethinÂ, go get it.ÂŽ ÂIn my own life, as much as I might want to quit, I just keep moving forward,ÂŽ he said. ÂI try to see the bright side of things when things arenÂt going my way. I was impressed by how determined the Will Smith character was in his life and how he lived. He was sleeping in bathrooms.ÂŽ ÂThe quote from ÂThe Pursuit of HappynessÂ Â“ts into my life right now,ÂŽ Sherrill said. ÂWhen I graduated from SFSC in May 2016, I knew I wanted to go off to get my bachelorÂs degree somewhere. My mom asked me how I was going to pay for it and where was I going to live. She wasnÂt trying to discourage me; she was, simply, being practical. I honestly had no idea how I would pay for things. I knew at the end of the day that I wanted to go away to college. I didnÂt let anything stop me from pursuing that dream.ÂŽ But Sherrill worked through the challenges. His mother helped him Â“nd a place to live in Orlando, and a Â“rst generation scholarship to UCF covered tuition in his junior year. In Sebring, Sherrill had worked at Publix and continued to do so while in Orlando. ÂDuring the spring and fall, I work 2025 hours a week. During the summer, itÂs 30-35 hours a week. I receive Â“nancial aid to pay for tuition, but I have to pay for rent as well. Every wall between me and going to college, I knocked it down. DonÂt ever let anyone tell you that you canÂt do something.ÂŽ Sherrill has been able to share his experiences in life and college. At the urging of SFSC student advisor Rob Hampton, Sherrill served as a panel member for SFSCÂs Minority Male Initiative for three years. Every spring, SFSC invites nearly 100 minority male students from high schools in Highlands, Hardee, and DeSoto counties to its Highlands Campus. The intention of the half-day conference is to motivate young men to enroll in college credit and occupational certiÂ“cate programs after completing high school and know that they will Â“nd a supportive and nurturing college experience that will prepare them for the future. ÂIÂve been in their shoes,ÂŽ Sherrill said. ÂThis past year, I felt like the students were interested to know why they should keep going. After I made a brief presentation, I found that one student in the audience was on the same path that I was on. He was interested in pursuing an education in Â“lm. He wanted to know how to pay for it, what classes I was taking. ÂBeing on the panel motivated me even more in continuing my education because I was picked to do something like that. I encouraged others and that inspired me to work even harder in pursuing my education. In other words, I have the power to have a voice in this, I get to hear othersÂ stories, so it motivated me.ÂŽ ÂRicky has been a part of the Minority Male Initiative since its launch in 2016,ÂŽ Hampton said. ÂHe has never hesitated to volunteer his time and life experiences, in hopes of inspiring young men in our community.ÂŽ Although Sherrill has several months to go before earning his bachelorÂs degree, his future is at the forefront of his mind. ÂAt Â“rst, I considered going to Los Angeles for work. But what changed my mind was the fact that a speaker who came to my Â“lm class stated there are other opportunities elsewhere. So, my goal is to work for Publix Corporate in Lakeland, then possibly go into the Â“lmmaking world later on in life.ÂŽ Sherrill offers advice to people contemplating college: ÂIf you donÂt put the action in it, if you donÂt believe in yourself, you wonÂt accomplish your dream. If you donÂt know how, how can you expect someone else to believe in you? I want everyone to succeed. If youÂve got something you want to do, the road may not be easy, but thereÂs a light at the end of the tunnel. YouÂve got to go through the darkness to get to the light.ÂŽSFSC alumnus pursues happiness through film COURTESY PHOTORicky Sherrill, at right, is seen here participating on the South Florida State College Minority Male Initiative panel.

The District Board of Trustees Policy revision would authorize the college president to approve or disapprove requests for the use, sale and/or consumption of beer and/or wine for special community events held on college property or for the use of alcohol in educational programs that require the use of alcohol strictly for educational purposes (for example, the criminal justice programs). There has been discussion and exploration in the past by the District Board of Trustees about allowing alcohol on a limited basis at special events, but previous proposed policy revisions have been tabled by the board with no further action. Board of Trustees Vice Chair Joe Wright said the board tabled the proposed policy revision Wednesday as a routine matter to allow additional time to consider it and then discuss it further at next monthÂs board meeting. The revision, prepared by College Attorney Pamela Carlson, was well thought out and well written, he said. It gives the college president some discretion as it should. The president is accountable to the Board of Trustees, but the board doesnÂt want to micro-manage the president, Wright explained. Wright said he supports the policy revision and believes there will be more discussion and the board will likely approve it. The next meeting of the District Board of Trustees is Oct. 31. The proposed policy revision states the president has no authority to approve requests for any type of alcohol at student-related events. Also, any approved event must be managed by a licensed and insured vendor responsible for serving all alcoholic beverages, and events where alcohol is served, must also serve non-alcoholic beverages and food.SFSC tables alcohol policy revision WRIGHT AP Chamber LuncheonAVON PARK Â„ The Avon Park Chamber of Commerce Networking Luncheon will take place at noon on Thursday, Sept. 27, at Hotel Jacaranda on Main Street.

Millions of people in North Carolina have been impacted by the storm, and anyone who was in Highlands County a year ago knows how devastating that impact can be. The Highlands County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce is partnering with Camp4Heroes and Paws and Warriors to take part in ÂOperation Call to Action,ÂŽ a supply collection to help those still suffering in the wake of Florence. Camp4Heroes, which is in Fairmont, N.C., normally serves as a retreat for Â“rst responders and veterans. In the wake of Florence, the camp has opened its doors to the community as well as to Â“rst responders working on recovery, giving them a place to sleep, eat and shower. Operation Call to Action is an expansion of that, collecting supplies not only for those at the camp, but also for the surrounding area. ÂAs we in Highlands County know, it takes a while for FEMA and the Red Cross to get up and running after a storm. In the meantime, efforts like Operation Call to Action are what makes the difference for those who are trying to get their life back to normal after a hurricane,ÂŽ Sheriff Paul Blackman said. ÂThe memory of Irma is still fresh in our minds, so I am conÂ“dent that the people of Highlands County will step up in a big way to help the victims of Hurricane Florence.ÂŽ Highlands County has already stepped up to help, sending a large load of supplies to North Carolina with Mike Souther through the Avon Park-Sebring Jaycees. Anyone who didnÂt get a chance to donate to that effort can still help by bringing their supplies to the SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce. Through Oct. 5, the Highlands County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce will be a collection point for supplies that will be delivered to Camp4Heroes. Paws and Warriors, a non-proÂ“t that provides therapy dogs to veterans, will be working with the HCSO to get the supplies to North Carolina. ÂThrough Paws and Warriors, we are teaming up with Camp4Heroes to gather supplies as they have stepped up to be the operations and distribution center for supplies while also offering up their location for Â“rst responders and displaced community members,ÂŽ said LaVonne Bower, founder of Paws and Warriors.

Highlands Health CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDESECTION BMonday, September 24, 2018I look around at this beautiful Earth and the people I love and I think, I never want to lose this gift! Eyesight is such a precious thing and most people take it for granted because youÂve never known otherwise. But itÂs common to lose vision as you age. ItÂs not just an inevitable consequence though. You might be able to slow it down by considering a few factors, dietary changes and vitamins or minerals. Today IÂll help you learn what might support your health if you have age related macular degeneration (AMD), dry eye syndrome or cataracts. As soon as you notice changes in your eyesight, see an ophthalmologist. I recommend you share eyesight changes with your doctor so they can see if you have diabetes or other disorders.Vision-protecting foodsTo protect eyesight, make sure that your diet contains plenty of eye-loving foods. These include citrus foods, nuts, hemp seeds, walnuts, almonds, cashews, salads, sweet potatoes, pumpkin seeds, and seafood. Water is also important. Dehydration will make your vision blurry.Lutein and zeaxanthinLutein and zeaxanthin are very special carotenoids that protect your retina. They Â“lter out high-energy wavelengths of light and act as antioxidants. You donÂt make your own lutein and zeaxanthin, eat right and/or supplement. The best sources of lutein and zeaxanthin are leafy greens, squash, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, carrots and egg yolks.Vitamins C and EThese two powerful antioxidants protect the tiny cells of your eye from oxidative damage. Both of these vitamins help you maintain healthy blood vessels. You see, blood vessels improve blood Â”ow to your eye and this is imperative to good vision. Good food sources of vitamin C include citrus fruits, bell peppers and salads. Vitamin E can be obtained from sunÂ”ower seeds, and walnuts.ZincZinc is highly concentrated in your retina and especially in the macula, where it helps to make a pigment called melanin that absorbs harmful light. Melanin is a pigment that is made in your body by melanocytes. ItÂs in your skin too, it protects against UV radiation. The more melanin you have, the more brown your eyes are. Zinc supports melanin production in the body.EPA and DHA Fish OilsThese offset some of the medication-induced vision damage that occurs from taking statins, NSAIDS, steroids and seizure medicine. Fish oils also suppress the inÂ”ammatory mediators such as thromboxanes, prostaglandins and leukotrienes. DHA accounts for more than one-third of the fatty acids in your retina. InÂ”ammation in your body doesnÂt passively go away. WeÂve recently learned there are three compounds that force it calm down. These good guys are called the resolvins, protectins, and maresins and essential fatty acids help you make more of the good guys.Wear sunglassesUltraviolet light can hurt your eyes so squinting isnÂt good. Wearing sunglasses when youÂre outside exposed to bright sunlight reduces the amount of UV light that your eyes are exposed to. FYI, our devices emit short-wavelength blue light which might have negative changes in our eyesight.6 ways to protect your eyesight COURTESY PHOTOThere are dierent ways of protecting your eyes.DEAR PHARMACISTSuzy Cohen SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNIn the latest of a series of actions to address the epidemic of youth e-cigarette use, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration launched ÂThe Real CostÂŽ Youth E-Cigarette Prevention Campaign, a new, comprehensive effort aimed at educating kids about the dangers of e-cigarettes. The campaign targets nearly 10.7 million youth, aged 12-17, who have used e-cigarettes or are open to trying them, and features hard-hitting advertising on digital and social media sites popular among teens, as well as placing posters with e-cigarette prevention messages in high schools across the nation. ÂE-cigarettes have become an almost ubiquitous Â„ and dangerous Â„ trend among youth that we believe has reached epidemic proportions,ÂŽ said FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, M.D. ÂThis troubling reality is prompting us to take even more forceful actions to stem this dangerous trend, including revisiting our compliance policy that FDA launches youth e-cigarette campaign FDA PHOTOThe Food and Drug Administration kicked o a new campaign targeting youth e-cigarette smokers last week. SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNDALLAS Â„ One of the largest and longest-running efforts to evaluate the potential beneÂ“ts of the Mediterranean-style diet in lowering risk of stroke found that the diet may be especially protective in women over 40 regardless of menopausal status or hormone replacement therapy, according to new research in the American Heart AssociationÂs journal Stroke. Researchers from the Universities of East Anglia, Aberdeen and Cambridge collaborated in this study using key components of a traditional Mediterraneanstyle diet including high intakes of Â“sh, fruits and nuts, vegetables, cereal foods and potatoes and lower meat and dairy consumption. Study participants (23,232 white adults, 40 to 77) were from the EPIC-Norfolk study, the United Kingdom Norfolk arm of the multicenter European Prospective Investigation into Cancer Women may benefit from Mediterranean dietStudy shows diet reduces stroke in women over 40 AHA PHOTOGrilled salmon, veggies and olive oil with bread for the Mediterranean Diet. SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNAn online initiative offering low-cost genetic testing to relatives of people with genetic mutations that increase their risk of cancer encourages the ÂcascadeÂŽ testing that can help to identify healthy people at risk of the disease, according to a new study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine and Color, a health services company that provides genetic testing. The study of more than 700 people bearing one of 30 cancer-associated mutations found that nearly half of a patientÂs Â“rst-degree relatives (think mother, father, siblings and children) chose to undergo testing when contacted by a genetic testing laboratory and offered a chance to have their own genes sequenced for about $50 Â„ about one-tenth the standard cost. Furthermore, about 12 percent of those found to have the same mutation as the original patient then went on to invite additional relatives to be tested. Although not everyone with a cancer-associated mutation will go on to develop the disease, the knowledge that one is a carrier can help people and their doctors make informed health care decisions while they are still healthy. For example, women with BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations who have a vastly increased risk of developing breast or ovarian cancers may choose to undergo prophylactic mastectomies or have their ovaries removed. Other types of mutations, such as those that increase oneÂs risk of colon cancer, may indicate the need for increased or more frequent screening. ÂWeÂve found that this approach has been remarkably successful in overcoming traditional barriers to reaching and testing a patientÂs relatives,ÂŽ said Allison Kurian, MD, associate professor of medicine and of health research and policy at Stanford. ÂThe results have been very striking, as traditional approaches to cascade testing result in only about 30 percent of relatives undergoing testing.ÂŽ Kurian shares senior authorship of the research, which was published Sept. 18 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, with Alicia Zhou, PhD, who is head of research at Color, based in Burlingame, California. Jennifer CaswellJin, MD, instructor of medicine at Stanford, and Anjali Zimmer, PhD, a technical writer from Color, are the lead authors of the study.ÂCascadeÂ testing may lead to earlier cancer detection COURTESY PHOTOÂCascadeÂ testing may lead to earlier cancer detection. STEVE FISCH/STANFORD PHOTOAllison Kurian and her colleagues found that people who had a closely-related relative with genetic mutations associated with cancer were more likely to get tested themselves when they were contacted by a genetic testing laboratory and oered a low-cost test.CAMPAIGN | 4B DIET | 8B TESTING | 10B
B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | September 24, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com By NANCY DALEYOGA FOR LIFEThe term ÂYoga,ÂŽ according to the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar is derived Âfrom the Sanskrit root ÂyujÂŽ meaning to bind, join, attach and yoke. It means the yoking of all the powers of body, mind, and spirit to a higher purpose enabling us to look at life from all aspects.ÂŽ The practice of Yoga emphasizes deep breathing to calm the restless mind and still Â”eeting emotions through the practice of Yoga postures. Yoga is a means of ÂdeliveranceÂŽ from conditioned postures that can contribute to pain and suffering. The names of some of the Yoga postures refer to animals and living symbols of the earth. One posture is ÂPigeon PoseÂŽ or Âsingle-leg King Gideon PoseÂŽ that is a modiÂ“ed back bend extending the thorasic spine. As the practitioner thrusts the chest towards the ceiling, it is said to be reminiscent of a pigeon pufÂ“ng up its chest. Pigeon Pose stimulates the internal organs, stretches the groin, and psoas (a long muscle on the side of the verbal column and important in core balance). Pigeon Pose relieves sciatic pain that can be caused by a nerve root in the lower back irritated or pinched. Often stress, negative energy/thoughts, trauma, fear and anxiety is unconsciously stored in the hips and spine, thus, practicing ÂPigeon PoseÂŽ opens the hips, inner thighs and lengthens the back through a modiÂ“ed back bend. LetÂs practice ÂPigeon PoseÂŽ Begin by laying face down full length on the Â”oor as if preparing to do ÂDownward Facing Dog.ÂŽ Bend the right leg and place it beneath the chest, keeping the left leg long. Stretch the arms forward or fold them and rest the cheek on the arms. You will feel. right away, the lengthening of the left leg as you patiently learn to let go of tension in the right leg that is bent under the chest. Hold the posture and relax so the muscles will loosen which takes Âmind over matterÂŽ as the body does not like to change habitual patterns with new movement. Stay in this pose for a count of 10 or more, then go back into Downward Facing Dog to lengthen the legs as you press the buttocks back and lift to the sky. Next, repeat the same procedure on the other side. Follow-up the second time on each side and raise the head slowly, curling it down the back. Hold this pose for a count of 10. Gradually, the spine will loosen and the back bend curve will deepen. This is a great stress relieving posture. If at any time the posture you feel ÂstrainedÂŽ come out of it, rest in ÂChildÂs PoseÂŽ on the Â”oor or return to Downward Facing Dog to lengthen the back, legs and spine. For GoldÂs Gym Yoga practitioner Trish Best, this is her favorite Yoga posture. Learn to love this posture and keep the mind focused on its beneÂ“ts while the body adjusts. Breathe into the posture. ÂMind over matterÂŽ is a way working philosophy in Yoga that re-trains the mind and body to re-align for health beneÂ“ts. In Yoga, we learn something new every time we return to the mat.Pigeon Pose to free a ridge spine COURTESY PHOTOThe Tree Pose, to improve balance. In the CLASSIFIEDS!

www.highlandsnewssun.com September 24, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B3Last week I threw out the term ÂAIÂŽ or artiÂ“cial intelligence. So, what exactly is artiÂ“cial intelligence and how is it used in our everyday life? Simply, it is machine learning. Now, itÂs a little more complicated than that. ArtiÂ“cial intelligence is the development of intelligent machines. Intelligent computers that react and work with humans. Machines have the abilities to react and learn to adapt to situations because of sensors and gyroscopes. It is advanced computer science. Because it can adapt to what it learns, it therefore has the ability to think. Therefore, it becomes Âhuman-like.ÂŽ It thus has cognitive functions. Many people will think of a robot when the term artiÂ“cial intelligence is mentioned. While it may have some artiÂ“cial intelligence, it is not the only AI system out there. In our smartphones, we have ÂSiri.ÂŽ Siri uses AI. She is able to identify our speech and Â“gure out by analyzing, what we need or want. I know if you use Siri enough she may make suggestions because she learns your habits, and questions. Amazon Alexa is another product that uses AI. It can answer questions, order for you and anticipate what you are about to ask. It can make music suggestions for you based on your listening habits. GoogleÂs smart home Nest uses AI sensors to monitor and protect your home. It can control your air conditioning, turn on your lights, and unlock your doors from a distance. All done with AI. ArtiÂ“cial intelligence and its development is progressing at rapid speeds. It is used in Â“nance, healthcare, education transportation, our elections, etc. In the medical Â“eld for instance there are complex algorithms and computer software programs to analyze medical data. It analyzes and delivers diagnoses based on the relationships between prevention, various treatments and the actual patient result. Mayo Clinic, Massachusetts General, and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center have all developed AI algorithms for their healthcare departments. Now, as of Aug. 28. we have hearing instruments with artiÂ“cial intelligence. Thanks to Starkey Hearing Technologies. These hearing instruments have the ability to rapidly learn where your head is pointing and adjust the sensors to control noise and pinpoint focus on speech that you are facing. Because of AI and embedded sensors, the aids perform tasks that would usually require human involvement and human intelligence. The instrument can monitor body and brain goals. Therefore, using your smartphone you can determine if you are active, as well as social enough Â„ enough to help push away dementia and AlzheimerÂs. It can translate languages on the spot. It can easily provide closed caption. Imagine ... you canÂt understand your doctor with a little accent to their English, or maybe the waitress. You simply hold your phone out and when they talk, it will speak in your language into your hearing aid and also print it on your screen so you can read it. The instruments integrate with Alexa. AI in hearing instruments will help you to stay independent longer. Because of the embedded sensors and gyroscopes, if you fall it will send a text to alert you need help. The inner ear is your center of balance. It is the best place to measure balance. In the near future, it will be able to predict if you are going to fall, thus giving you time to correct your gait. That is a life saver. AI is not in the future any more ... it is here and moving at lightning speed. Stay tuned. To Hear Better Is To Live Better. Roseann B.

B4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | September 24, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com extended the compliance dates for manufacturers of certain e-cigarettes, including Â”avored e-cigarettes, to submit applications for premarket authorization. Based on our evidence, we believe the presence of Â”avors is one component making these products especially attractive to kids. The mandate to reverse this trend in youth addiction to nicotine is one of my highest priorities.ÂŽ Gottlieb said heÂs using every tool at his disposal to curtail e-cigarette use amount youth. ÂThe new campaign weÂre announcing today seeks to snap teens out of their ÂcostfreeÂ mentality regarding e-cigarette use with powerful and creative messages that reach kids where they spend a lot of their time: online and in school,ÂŽ he said. ÂIn particular, these compelling prevention messages will be displayed in high school bathrooms, a place we know many teens are using e-cigarettes or faced with the peer pressure to do so.ÂŽ Over the past several years, e-cigarettes were the most commonly used tobacco product by youth. In fact, more than 2 million middle and high school students were current users of e-cigarettes in 2017, and the FDA now believes that youth use of e-cigarettes is reaching epidemic proportions. This belief is based on a number of factors, including the agencyÂs mounting enforcement actions, recent sales trends, news coverage, increased concerns among kids, parents and educators, as well as preliminary data that will be Â“nalized and released in the coming months. Additional research from another survey, Monitoring the Future, shows that about 80 percent of youth do not see great risk of harm from regular use of e-cigarettes. This is particularly alarming considering that harm perceptions can inÂ”uence tobacco use behaviors. With its tagline, ÂKnow the Real Cost of Vaping,ÂŽ the campaign aims to educate youth that using e-cigarettes, just like cigarettes, puts them at risk for addiction and other health consequences. To ensure these messages are reaching the intended youth audience, the ads will run on age-veriÂ“ed digital platforms such as YouTube, Spotify, Pandora, Facebook and Instagram, as well as ÂThe Real CostÂŽ campaign website and are targeted to reach these teens with digital media and printed prevention messages in a school environment. This includes using location-targeted advertising around high schools nationwide and placing e-cigarette prevention content on educational platforms that are typically accessed by students during the school day. Posters also will be placed in at least 10,000 high school bathrooms, and additional materials for students and educators will be distributed to schools, in collaboration with Scholastic and Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD). ÂThe FDA has a successful track record of using compelling, science-based public education campaigns to encourage kids to rethink their relationship with tobacco and is bringing the same approach to these new efforts to prevent youth use of e-cigarettes,ÂŽ said Mitch Zeller, J.D., director of the FDAÂs Center for Tobacco Products. ÂE-cigarette use among youth is a tremendous concern and this new campaign will allow us to effectively communicate the dangers of these products to teens. Public education is a critical component of our ongoing work to prevent youth use of tobacco products and complements our enforcement and regulatory efforts to protect kids.ÂŽ As part of the agencyÂs Youth Tobacco Prevention Plan and ongoing work to protect youth from the dangers of tobacco products, the FDA has taken a series of actions over the past several months to more immediately target the illegal sales of e-cigarettes to youth, as well as the kid-friendly marketing and appeal of these products.CAMPAIGNFROM PAGE 1B FDA PHOTO Gregg Shore, M.D. Specializing in InterStim Therapy for Incontinence in Highlands County!

Over a 17-year period, researchers examined participantsÂ diets and compared stroke risk among four groups ranked highest to lowest by how closely they adhered to a Mediterranean style diet. In participants, who most closely followed a Mediterranean-style diet, the reduced onset of stroke was: 17 percent in all adults; 22 percent in women; and 6 percent in men (which researchers said could have been due to chance). ÂIt is unclear why we found differences between women and men, but it could be that components of the diet may inÂ”uence men differently than women,ÂŽ said Ailsa A. Welch, Ph.D., study lead author and professor of nutritional epidemiology at the University of East Anglia, United Kingdom. ÂWe are also aware that different sub-types of stroke may differ between genders. Our study was too small to test for this, but both possibilities deserve further study in the future.ÂŽ There was also a 13 percent overall reduced risk of stroke in participants already at high risk of cardiovascular disease across all four groups of the Mediterranean-diet scores. However, this was driven mainly by the associations in women who showed a 20 percent reduced stroke risk. This beneÂ“t appeared to be extended to people in low risk group although the possibility of chance Â“nding cannot be ruled out completely. ÂOur Â“ndings provide clinicians and the public with information regarding the potential beneÂ“t of eating a Mediterranean-style diet for stroke prevention, regardless of cardiovascular risk,ÂŽ said Professor Phyo Myint, M.D., study co-author and former British Association of Stroke Physicians Executive Committee member, University of Aberdeen, Scotland. ÂA healthy, balanced diet is important for everyone both young and old,ÂŽ said Professor Ailsa Welch. Researchers used seven-day diet diaries, which they said had not been done before in such a large population. Seven-day diaries are more precise than food-frequency questionnaires and participants write down everything they eat and drink over the period of a week. ÂThe American Heart Association recommends a heart-healthy and brain-healthy dietary pattern that includes a variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, Â“sh, poultry, beans, non-tropical vegetable oils and nuts and limits saturated fat, trans fat, sodium, red meat, sweets and sugar-sweetened beverages; this dietary pattern reduces risk factors and risk for heart disease and stroke, Âsaid Eduardo Sanchez, M.D., MPH, the American Heart AssociationÂs chief medical ofÂ“cer for prevention and chief of the AssociationÂs Centers for Health Metrics and Evaluation, who was not a part of this study. ÂThis study provides more evidence that supports AHAÂs recommendation,ÂŽ said Sanchez. Other co-authors are Katherine Paterson, M.Res.; Amy Jennings, Ph.D.; Lucy Bain, Ph.D.; Marleen Lentjes, Ph.D.; and Kay-Tee Khaw, M.D. Author disclosures are on the manuscript.

www.highlandsnewssun.com September 24, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B9SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNAVON PARK Â„ South Florida State CollegeÂs Dental Hygiene program will hold oral cancer screenings from 3:306 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 18, in Building T, SFSC Highlands Campus. The screening is by appointment only, open to the public, and free. The screening is a simple process that takes about 10Â…15 minutes. After a brief medical history, patients will undergo a head and neck examination. When needed, the visual exam is followed by a VELscope inspection in which a Â”orescent light is shown into the mouth and helps to detect abnormal cells that are not visible to the naked eye. ÂEven if you wear dentures, you should have an oral cancer screening every year,ÂŽ said Dr. Deborah Milliken, department chair, Dental Education. ÂDental hygienists and dental assistants serve the community in many ways and an Oral Cancer Screening is one of the ways they offer their expertise to the community.ÂŽ According to the Oral Cancer Foundation and Oral Cancer Consortium, oral cancer is more deadly than HodgkinÂs lymphoma, cervical, thyroid and skin cancers, and kills one person every hour of the day, but when found early, oral cancer patients have a 90 percent survival rate. Oral cancer risk factors include alcohol and tobacco use, advancing age, sun exposure, a diet low in fruits and vegetables, and the human papilloma virus (HPV), which makes it Â“ve times more likely for an occurrence in people under the age of 40. To make an appointment, call SFSC Dental Education at 863-784-7020.SFSC dental clinic offers free screenings SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNSEBRING Â„ CORA Physical Therapy, an industry leader in providing the latest therapies and specialty services, announced the arrival of the Alter G Anti-Gravity Treadmill at its newest clinic at 3200 Physicians Way in Sebring.

B10 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | September 24, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Growing interest in genetic tests Increasingly, newly diagnosed cancer patients are turning to genetic testing in a quest to understand why theyÂve developed the disease. The discovery of a disease-associated mutation can help drive treatment decisions and provide clues as to the cancerÂs origin. But thereÂs another important, often overlooked beneÂ“t: The test results can help a patientÂs healthy Â“rst-degree relatives assess their own genetic risk for cancer. About 50 percent of these relatives could be expected to harbor the same mutation as the patient, even if they havenÂt developed cancers themselves. However, this kind of cascade testing, in which a positive result in a cancer patient triggers waves of genetic testing among the patientÂs relatives, remains relatively rare Â„ in part because physicians are often prohibited from directly contacting a patientÂs relatives, and people reeling from their own recent diagnosis may not immediately consider the health implications for their loved ones. Testing can also be expensive and is not always covered by insurance. Because about half of a patientÂs Â“rst-degree relatives are also likely carriers of the same mutation, cascade testing has signiÂ“cant public health implications for early cancer detection and even prevention. Kurian and her colleagues wondered if there was an easier way to reach potential carriers. They evaluated the Â“rst year of a family testing program in which people found to harbor one of 30 cancer-associated genes were encouraged to provide the testing laboratory with email addresses for their Â“rst-degree relatives. The laboratory then contacted the relatives to provide more information via a web portal and invite them to be tested for an out-of-pocket cost of $50. ÂOne unique thing about this study is that it isnÂt focused on any single gene,ÂŽ Caswell-Jin said. ÂThese participants were carriers of mutations in any of 30 different genes, some of which are very strongly associated with the development of speciÂ“c cancers. Because about half of a patientÂs Â“rst-degree relatives are also likely carriers of the same mutation, cascade testing has signiÂ“cant public health implications for early cancer detection and even prevention.ÂŽ To conduct the study, the researchers invited carriers of one of 30 cancer-associated mutations, identiÂ“ed by any one of several certiÂ“ed genetic testing laboratories, and their relatives to participate in the family testing program. They reached possible participants through the use of online advertising, notices in physiciansÂ clinics or at group meetings for families with hereditary cancers. From September 2016 to September 2017, 1,101 people Â„ 741 people who carried the mutation themselves, and 360 relatives of the carriers Â„ opted to participate in the program. Together, the original participants then invited 2,280 of their relatives to also be tested. Nearly half of those invited underwent testing themselves within the studyÂs follow-up period. As expected, about half of the tested relatives were also carriers. About 12 percent of these people then used the family testing program to invite additional Â“rst-degree relatives to be tested. Different mutations identiÂ“ed Surprisingly, the researchers found that about 5 percent of relatives tested carried cancer-associated mutations that differed from those of their patient relatives. The researchers emphasize that, regardless of how people are contacted to be tested, it is important to involve a genetic counselor to interpret test results and direct mutation carriers to appropriate health care services. ÂThis is such an exciting era,ÂŽ Caswell-Jin said. ÂWe expect the proportion of people undergoing genetic testing for disease-associated mutations will continue to increase. We need to make sure they get the support they need to understand their results, and to encourage additional support and follow-up.ÂŽ ÂWe are very engaged in learning how to most effectively implement genetic testing, particularly in a broad population,ÂŽ Kurian said. ÂWe are eager to pursue this Â“nding further and to understand how we can improve on this new model of cascade testing.ÂŽTESTINGFROM PAGE 1B Accepting New Pulmonary Patients!Welcome Amy De La Fuente, A.R.N.P.To Bassetti & Associates, M.D., P.A. 863-314-00015825 U.S. Hwy 27 North, Sebring adno=3614061-1 Thomas C.

ROBERTSON, MARTHA WAGGONER and ALAN SUDERMANASSOCIATED PRESSBLADENBORO, N.C. Â„ Thousands of coastal residents remained on edge Sunday, told they may need to leave their homes because rivers are still rising more than a week after Hurricane Florence slammed into the Carolinas. About 6,000 to 8,000 people in Georgetown County, South Carolina, were alerted to be prepared to evacuate ahead of a Ârecord eventÂŽ of up to 10 feet of Â” ooding expected from heavy rains dumped by Florence, county spokeswoman Jackie Broach-Akers said. She said Â” ooding is expected to begin Tuesday near parts of the Pee Dee and Waccamaw rivers and that people in potential Â” ood zones should plan to leave their homes Monday. The countyÂs emergency management director, Sam Hodge, said in a video message posted online that authorities are closely watching river gauges and law enforcement would be going door to door in any threatened areas. ÂFrom boots on the ground to technology that we have, we are trying to be able to get the message out,ÂŽ Hodge said in the video feed, advising people they shouldnÂt await an ofÂ“ cial order to evacuate should they begin to feel unsafe. In North Carolina, Â“ ve river gauges were still at major Â” ood stage and Â“ ve others were at moderate By STEVEN T. DENNIS and BEN BRODYBLOOMBERG NEWS (TNS)WASHINGTON Â…Â… Senior Republicans cautioned President Donald Trump Sunday against Â“ ring Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein before an investigation of reports that Rosenstein privately discussed whether to record the president and try to remove him from ofÂ“ ce. ÂHe shouldnÂt Â“ re Rosenstein unless you believe RosensteinÂs lying,ÂŽ Sen, Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said on ÂFox News Sunday,ÂŽ as fallout continued from a New York Times report about RosensteinÂs conversations. Rosenstein has denied that he considered recording Trump or spearheading an effort to remove him from ofÂ“ ce via the 25th Amendment to the Constitution. Graham, however, said Rosenstein, who oversees special counsel Robert MuellerÂs investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, should name a second special counsel to look into what he called Âa bureaucratic coupÂŽ against Trump. Graham said several FBI ofÂ“ cials, including Â“ red former acting Director Andrew McCabe, Âtried to destroy this president. If RosensteinÂs involved, he should be Â“ red. If heÂs not involved, leave him alone.ÂŽ Graham has previously said Trump could replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions but only after the midterm elections, which would allow Trump to install someone else to oversee the Russia investigation. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., repeated his call for Trump to declassif y surveillance documents signed by Rosenstein, but cautioned against Â“ ring Rosenstein now. ÂThe answer, I think, is no for now,ÂŽ Nunes said Sunday on ÂFox & Friends.ÂŽ Midterm elections are coming up, and it would take time to bring in witnesses who knew exactly what Rosenstein said, he added. ÂRod Rosenstein should have his fair day in court,ÂŽ Nunes said. ÂHowever, if Rod Rosenstein really did talk about wearing a wire, then for sure he should be Â“ red.ÂŽ Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said Rosenstein should get a chance to explain his side of what happened after a review of evidence, including memos written by McCabe. ÂGive Rod a chance to explain whether or not itÂs true,ÂŽ Gowdy said. Democrats have warned Trump not to use the Times report as a pretext for Â“ ring Rosenstein and interfering with MuellerÂs investigation.By NASSER KARIMI and JON GAMBRELLASSOCIATED PRESSTEHRAN, Iran Â„ IranÂs president on Sunday accused an unnamed U.S.-allied country in the Persian Gulf of being behind a terror attack on a military parade that killed 25 people and wounded 60, further raising regional tensions. Hassan RouhaniÂs comments came as IranÂs Foreign Ministry also summoned Western diplomats over them allegedly providing havens for the Arab separatists who claimed SaturdayÂs attacks in the southwestern city of Ahvaz. The Iranian moves, as well as promises of revenge by IranÂs elite Revolutionary Guard, come as the country already faces turmoil in the wake of the American withdraw from TehranÂs nuclear deal with world powers. The attack in Ahvaz, which saw women and children Â” ee with uniformed soldiers bloodied, has further shaken the country.

Page 2 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Monday, September 24, 2018 By NATALIYA VASILYEVAASSOCIATED PRESSMOSCOW Â„ The Russian Defense Ministry on Sunday again blamed Israel for the downing of a Russian plane by Syrian government forces, adding that Israel appeared ÂungratefulÂŽ for MoscowÂs efforts to rein in Iran-backed Â“ghters in Syria. Syrian government forces mistook the Russian Il-20 reconnaissance plane for an Israeli jet and shot it down Monday, killing all 15 people aboard. The Russian military initially blamed the planeÂs loss on Israel, but President Vladimir Putin later attributed it to Âa chain of tragic, fatal circumstancesÂŽ in which an Israeli Â“ghter jet used the Russian plane as a shield. Israel rejected the claim. The Russian Defense Ministry on Sunday presented its latest Â“ndings on the Il-20Âs downing, laying the blame squarely on Israel. Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said in a statement that an Israeli Â“ghter jet Â”ying over SyriaÂs Mediterranean coast shortly before the downing deliberately used the Russian plane as a shield, reÂ”ecting Âeither lack of professionalism or criminal negligence.ÂŽ He accused Israel of using a hotline set up with Russia to prevent their air forces from clashing over Syria skies to mislead Russia about its plans. He said the Russians were unable to get the Il-20 to a safe place because an Israeli duty ofÂ“cer had misled them, telling them of an Israeli operation in northern Syria while the jets were actually in Latakia, in the countryÂs west. ÂWe believe that the Israeli Air Force and those who were making decisions about these actions are fully to blame for the tragedy that happened to the Russian Il-20 plane,ÂŽ Konashenkov said. The Israeli military in a statement later on Sunday insisted that the Israelis complied with the hotline procedures and rejected KonashenkovÂs suggestions that Israeli jets were ultimately to blame for the downing. The Israeli Air Force Âdid not hide behind any aircraft,ÂŽ the statement said. ÂThe result of the downing of the Russian plane by Syrian Â“re is severe and tragic and we convey our condolences to the bereaved families and the Russian people.ÂŽ For the past several years, Israel and Russia have maintained their ÂdeconÂ”iction lineÂŽ as Russia has provided key air support to President Bashar AssadÂs forces since 2015, while Israel has carried out dozens of strikes against Iranlinked forces. Israeli military ofÂ“cials have previously praised the hotlineÂs effectiveness. A high-level Israeli military delegation visiting Moscow on Friday to present detailed information on the downing vowed to improve the hotline. Konashenkov, who also complained that the Israelis regularly delay notifying Russia of their operations, endangering Russian aircraft, described IsraelÂs actions as Âa highly ungrateful response to everything that Russia has done for the State of Israel recently.ÂŽ He was referring to efforts by Russia to rein in Iran-backed forces in Syria, including a deal struck in July to keep such Â“ghters 53 miles from the Israel-occupied Golan Heights.Russia blames Israel for downing of plane by Syrian forces AP PHOTOIn this photo taken March 2017, a Il-20 electronic intelligence plane of the Russian air force Â”ays near Kubinka airport, outside Moscow, Russia.

Swiss-flagged cargo ship attacked, 12 kidnappedBERLIN (AP) Â„ A Swiss shipping company says that a bulk carrier has been attacked by pirates off NigeriaÂs coast and 12 of its 19 crew members have been kidnapped. Geneva-based Massoel Shipping said the MV Glarus was attacked early Saturday as it sailed from Lagos to Port Harcourt with a load of wheat. It said in a statement emailed Sunday that the pirates apparently boarded the ship using long ladders and cut razor wire on the deck to make their way to the bridge. The company added that, after destroying much of the shipÂs communications equipment, the gang departed with 12 of the crew members. It said that a pilot and naval ofÂ“cers are now on board, and it is working for Âthe speedy and safe releaseÂŽ of the captured crew.Iran executes 9 men convicted of rapeTEHRAN, Iran (AP) Â„ Iranian media say nine men convicted of raping a woman have been hanged. The Arman daily reported Sunday that the men broke into the womanÂs villa in the southern Fars province and raped her, without specifying when the crime took place. They were hanged Saturday after the Supreme Court reafÂ“rmed their sentence earlier this month. Arman quoted Ali Alghasimehr, the provincial chief justice, as saying that the woman withdrew her complaint but that authorities carried out the punishment anyway. Rights groups say Iran is one of the worldÂs leading executioner.New Vietnamese president is first woman to hold officeHANOI, Vietnam (TNS) Â…Â…Vietnam has its Â“rst female president with the appointment of Vice President Nguyen Thi Ngoc Thinh after Tran Dai Quang died Friday. Thinh will be the acting president until the National Assembly elects a new leader. Thinh has been vice president since April 2016. Vietnam will observe a mourning period Wednesday and Thursday to honor Quang. Quang, who was 61, was one of the countryÂs top four leaders, with the general secretary of the Communist Party, prime minister and head of the National Assembly. A former minister of public security who supported forging closer ties with the U.S. and boosting the nationÂs private sector, Quang hosted U.S. President Donald Trump during his Â“rst state visit to the communist country last year. Under VietnamÂs constitution, the vice president becomes acting president if the president dies in ofÂ“ce until the National Assembly chooses a permanent replacement. Marchers demand better protection for British wildlifeLONDON (AP) Â„ The animals canÂt protest so people in London did that for them. Hundreds of marchers demanded better protection for British wildlife at the PeopleÂs Walk for Wildlife in Hyde Park on Saturday. Many carried pro-nature and pro-animal banners and placards and some wore animal masks. Organizers said the march was to raise awareness about the threat to species and habitats across the United Kingdom. Singer Billy Bragg implored the crowd to put the environment Âback on the agendaÂŽ despite the Conservative governmentÂs preoccupation with its Brexit divorce from the European Union. Organizer Chris Packham has unveiled proposals to help BritainÂs natural environment, including linking elementary schools to farms so children learn about food production. He has also called for an end to grouse shooting and dredging for scallops.3,301 civilians killed in US-led strikes in Syria since 2014, monitor saysCAIRO Â„ U.S.-led coalition strikes on Islamic State-held areas in Syria since 2014 have killed nearly 12,000 people, including more than 3,300 civilians, a war monitor said Sunday. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 3,331 civilians Â„ among them 826 children Â„ were killed, of a total of 11,846 people. Thousands of others were wounded in the coalition strikes that began in Syria on Sept. 23, 2014, said Rami Abdel Rahman, the head of the Britain-based watchdog group. The U.S.-led coalition was formed in August 2014 after Islamic State took over large parts of Syria and Iraq. HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLD By GARY FINEOUT and BRENDAN FARRINGTONASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE Â„ FloridaÂs 2018 midterm election is one of the most important in years. The governorÂs ofÂ“ce and all three Cabinet seats are on the ballot; Republican Gov. Rick Scott is challenging three-term Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson; several congressional seats will be competitive; and Floridians will vote on several proposed constitutional amendments. The following are items of political interest from the past week:WHO YOU CALLING A SOCIALIST?Gov. Rick Scott decided this week to come up with a new line of attack on his Democratic opponent. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson is a Âsocialist,ÂŽ Scott declared during a campaign stop in Brevard County without giving much of an explanation. Scott and his campaign were asked after the event to explain how Nelson could be considered a socialist since socialism is usually deÂ“ned as government-control of various parts of the economy. Part of the argument was that Nelson is supporting Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who is in favor of Medicare-for-all, the health overhaul championed by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. But while Nelson is backing Gillum he does not support the Medicare-for-all proposal. Another reason cited by Scott in an interview with a local newspaper was that Nelson is in favor of Âhigher taxesÂŽ and opposed the tax cut package pushed through by Congress at the end of last year. Scott has pushed for tax cuts while governor, but his fellow Republicans in the Florida House rejected a plan by Scott that they said would raise property taxes to help pay for education. After getting questioned about it, Chris Hartline, a spokesman for the campaign said this: ÂAs liberals around the country embrace the socialist platform, the question becomes: is Bill Nelson a Socialist or just really, really liberal? Answer: whatÂs the difference?ÂŽ Dan McLaughlin, a spokesman for NelsonÂs campaign, said ScottÂs use of the ÂsocialistÂŽ tag just shows that the governor is Âgetting desperateÂŽ because he spent millions on television ads over the summer and polls show that the race is either tied or close. ÂRick Scott makes up these wild charges and I think heÂs doing so because heÂs on the ropes,ÂŽ McLaughlin said.SMOKE ÂEM IF YOU GOT ÂEMDemocratic candidate for attorney general and state Rep. Sean Shaw said he wants to legalize recreational marijuana and that heÂll drop the stateÂs appeal in a lawsuit that seeks to declare smokable medical marijuana legal. Voters approved medical marijuana two years ago, but lawmakers made it illegal to smoke it. Attorney John Morgan sued to allow smokable medical marijuana and a lower court judge agreed it should be allowed. But Republican Attorney General Pam Bondi appealed. ÂI understood what it meant when more than 70 percent of Floridians voted in favor of medical marijuana, and to be clear, they had every intention for it to be smoked,ÂŽ Shaw said at a press conference held at a Tampa medical marijuana dispensary. He also said recreational marijuana should also be legalized. ÂExpanding access to legal marijuana is just common sense. Law enforcement ofÂ“cialsÂ time and resources would be better spent addressing serious crimes instead of arresting and prosecuting adults for marijuana consumption,ÂŽ he said.COUNTING THE BALLOTSA new report released this week is raising questions about how different counties handle vote-by-mail ballots, or what used to be called absentee ballots. University of Florida professor Daniel Smith, working on behalf of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, looked at the rates of ballots that had been rejected by election ofÂ“cials in the 2012 and 2016 general elections. There are several reasons that a ballot can be rejected, but one reason is that a voterÂs signature on Â“le with election ofÂ“cials does not match the signature put on the returned ballot. Following a successful lawsuit Â“led by the Florida Democratic Party, the Legislature in 2017 changed the law to require county election ofÂ“ces to notify voters if their signatures on their ballot and voter registration form donÂt match. Voters would then be given a chance to Â“x the problem before the election. SmithÂs report found younger voters as well as black and Hispanic voters had a higher rejection rate. The report also found that rates varied by which county the voter lived in. The results led the ACLU and Smith to recommend that the state look at having more uniform standards for the design of absentee ballots and how election ofÂ“ces handle them. Howard Simon, executive director of the ACLU of Florida, urged Âvoters to take the steps to track their mail ballot and, if there is a problem with the voterÂs signature, to use the cure process to ensure that their vote is counted.ÂŽSocialists, ballots and pot: The week in Florida politics SCOTT NELSONDeputies: Man threatened to shoot helicopterDELAND (AP) Â„ A Florida man is facing a felony charge after authorities say he told a television station and sheriffÂs deputies that he was going to shoot down the sheriffÂs helicopter if it didnÂt stop flying over his house. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported Saturday that 54-yearold Robert Moni is charged with making a false report of a bomb, arson or weapon of mass destruction. Volusia County SheriffÂs deputies said they received a call Thursday from a TV station employee who said that a man had claimed in a phone call that he would shoot down the sheriffÂs helicopter if it didnÂt stop flying overhead. Investigators say Moni had made similar threats before and espoused conspiracy theories, saying the helicopters were spying on him. Records show Moni was released on $20,000 bail. He did not respond to a phone call.Man charged in deaths of woman, his unborn babyPORT ST. LUCIE (AP) Â„ Authorities say a Florida man is charged with two counts of murder in the killing of an expectant mother and their unborn child. TC Palm newspapers reported Sunday that 41-year-old Jose Soto Escalera is charged in the death of 23-year-old Tania Wise, whose body was found last month in a ditch. She was about to give birth to their child. St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara says investigators have digital forensic evidence and witnesses who confirmed seeing a truck matching EscaleraÂs near where WiseÂs body was found. Authorities have not said how she died. Mascara says DNA proves Escalera was the father of the unborn child. He is also married to another woman and has four other children. It wasnÂt immediately clear if Escalera has a lawyer to represent him.Deputies recover body of teenager found in Florida pondORLANDO (AP) Â„ Authorities have recovered the body of an 18-year-old man in a pond near the University of Central Florida. A spokesman for the Orange County SheriffÂs Office says the victim was identified as Adrian Edwin Diaz of Winter Springs. The Orlando Sentinel reported that deputies responded at 8 a.m. Sunday to reports that a body was in a pond located behind a hotel. A marine unit was sent to assist. Investigators say the death is not believed to have involved foul play. No further details were immediately available. HEADLINES AROUND THE STATEWORLD/STATE NEWS
The Sun | Monday, September 24, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3 By ELLIOT SPAGATASSOCIATED PRESSSAN DIEGO Â„ The Trump administration has proposed rules that could deny green cards to immigrants if they use Medicaid, food stamps, housing vouchers and other forms of public assistance. Federal law already requires those seeking green cards to prove they will not be a burden Â„ or Âpublic chargeÂŽ Â„ but the new rules detail a broad range of programs that could disqualify them. The Department of Homeland Security said Saturday that current and past receipt of certain public beneÂ“ts above thresholds would be considered Âa heavily weighed negative factorÂŽ in granting green cards as well as temporary stays. The proposal Âwill clearly deÂ“ne long-standing law to ensure that those seeking to enter and remain in the United States either temporarily or permanently can support themselves Â“nancially and will not be reliant on public beneÂ“ts,ÂŽ the department said. The 447-page proposal published on the departmentÂs website will appear in the Federal Register Âin the coming weeks,ÂŽ triggering a 60-day public comment period before it takes effect. Coming less than seven weeks before midterm elections, the announcement could help galvanize voters who have backed or opposed TrumpÂs broad crackdown on legal and illegal immigration. Immigrant advocacy groups said people may avoid or withdraw from public aid programs even at the risk of losing shelter and suffering deteriorating health because they worry they will be denied visas. Marielena Hincapi, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center, said the proposal was Âan inhumane attack on the health and wellbeing of so many families and communities across the country.ÂŽ ÂHow you contribute to your community Â„ and not what you look like or the contents of your wallet Â„ should be what matters most,ÂŽ she said. ÂThis proposed rule does the opposite and makes clear that the Trump administration continues to prioritize money over family unity by ensuring that only the wealthiest can afford to build a future in this country.ÂŽ Potentially disqualifying beneÂ“ts include Medicare Part D prescription drugs, Medicaid with some exceptions for emergency services and disability services related to education, food stamps and Section 8 housing vouchers.US considers limit on green cards for immigrants on benefits AP FILE PHOTOIn this 2015 Â“le photo, pedestrians crossing from Mexico into the United States at the Otay Mesa Port of Entry wait in line in San Diego.

By TODD RUGERCQ-ROLL CALL (TNS)WASHINGTON Â…Â… Christine Blasey Ford is now scheduled to testify Thursday morning at the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding her sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The committee announced the rescheduling of KavanaughÂs continued conÂ“rmation hearing Sunday. The hearing had been expected to continue Monday, but FordÂs lawyers negotiated the timing with the committeeÂs Republican majority. ÂWe committed to moving forward with an open hearing on Thursday, Sept. 27, at 10:00 a.m. Despite actual threats to her safety and her life, Dr. Ford believes it is important for Senators to hear directly from her about the sexual assault committed against her,ÂŽ the lawyers said in a statement. ÂShe has agreed to move forward with a hearing even though the Committee has refused to subpoena Mark Judge.ÂŽ The decision sets up a historic and high-stakes hearing between the longtime federal appeals court judge who has unequivocally denied FordÂs allegation and a California professor who says he pinned her down and attempted to rape her at a high school party when he was 17 years old. Speaking for Ford, attorneys Debra Katz, Lisa Banks and Michael R. Bromwich said some logistical challenges will still need to be sorted out. Among the questions is whether actual Republican senators serving on the Judiciary Committee will be asking questions or whether staff will take on that responsibility.KavanaughÂs accuser commits to Thursday testimonyBy BERNARD CONDONAP BUSINESS WRITERNEW YORK Â„ A New York City councilman plans to introduce a bill to close the ÂKushner loopholeÂŽ that fails to check up on landlords if they Â“le false documents with the city. The move follows an Associated Press report earlier this year that Jared KushnerÂs family real estate company Â“led dozens of false documents with the city claiming it had no rent-regulated tenants in many of its buildings. That allowed it to avoid strict oversight of construction that critics say was used to drive out low-paying tenants. Councilman Ritchie Torres says his bill would require the cityÂs buildings department to check with tax records to validate such claims. If any false submission is discovered, the landlordÂs entire portfolio of buildings would be subject to an audit. ÂWe refuse to stand by idly while real estate companies like the Kushner Cos. play Russian roulette with the safety of the residents and the affordability of rent,ÂŽ Torres said. ÂKushner Cos. is a poster child for a systemic problem.ÂŽ The AP story in March, based on a study by tenant watchdog Housing Rights Initiative, showed the Kushner Cos. Â“led at least 80 such false construction-permit applications in 34 buildings over a three-year period when the company was being run by Jared Kushner, who is President Donald TrumpÂs adviser and son-in-law. The permit applications stated there was not a single rent-regulated tenant in any of the buildings when, in truth, there were hundreds. A landlord with rent-regulated residents can face extra city oversight during construction including Âtenant protection sweepsÂŽ by buildings marshals to make sure noise, dust and offhour work are not used to push out low-rent tenants so they could be replaced with higher paying ones. The city Â“ned the Kushner Cos. $210,000 last month for 42 of the false Â“lings. The family company says it plans to Â“ght the charges in court. It says any mistakes in its documents were made by third parties and errors were quickly corrected, and says it has not used construction to harass low-paying tenants. Housing Rights Initiative founder Aaron Carr says the practice of submitting false permit applications is widespread in the city. He says a new study he conducted of applications from the start of 2016 through June this year shows that the buildings department approved over 10,000 applications falsely claiming there were no rentregulated tenants in hundreds of buildings throughout the city. He says he checked the application claims against tax records at the cityÂs Department of Finance, which showed there were plenty of such residents. Carr says details of the study will be released at a news conference Monday when Councilman Torres will also announce his proposed bill.Bill targets ÂKushner loopholeÂ allowing false filings KUSHNER NATIONAL NEWS ÂThe laser treatments have reduced my pain from a 9-10 to a 1 or 0.

There are 98 days left in the year.Today in historyOn September 24, 1789, President George Washington signed a Judiciary Act establishing AmericaÂs federal court system and creating the post of attorney general.On this dateIn 1869 thousands of businessmen were ruined in a Wall Street panic known as ÂBlack FridayÂŽ after financiers Jay Gould and James Fisk attempted to corner the gold market. In 1890 the president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Wilford Woodruff, wrote a manifesto renouncing the practice of plural marriage, or polygamy. In 1896 author F. Scott Fitzgerald was born in St. Paul, Minnesota. In 1934 Babe Ruth made his farewell appearance as a player with the New York Yankees in a game against the Boston Red Sox. (The Sox won, 5-0.) In 1955 President Dwight D. Eisenhower suffered a heart attack while on vacation in Denver. In 1960 the USS Enterprise, the first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, was launched at Newport News, Virginia. ÂThe Howdy Doody ShowÂŽ ended a nearly 13-year run with its final telecast on NBC. In 1968 the TV news magazine Â60 MinutesÂŽ premiered on CBS; the undercover police drama ÂThe Mod SquadÂŽ premiered on ABC. In 1976 former hostage Patricia Hearst was sentenced to seven years in prison for her part in a 1974 bank robbery in San Francisco carried out by the Symbionese Liberation Army. (Hearst was released after 22 months after receiving clemency from President Jimmy Carter.) In 1991 childrenÂs author Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, died in La Jolla, Calif., at age 87. In 1996 the United States and 70 other countries became the first to sign a treaty at the United Nations to end all testing and development of nuclear weapons. (The Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty has yet to enter into force because of the refusal so far of eight nations Â„ including the United States Â„ to ratify it.) One year ago: More than 200 NFL players kneeled or sat during the national anthem after President Donald Trump criticized the playersÂ protests in a speech and a series of tweets.TodayÂs birthdays Rhythm-and-blues singer Sonny Turner (The Platters) is 79.

No matter how it looks from the top, God has the final say over the bottom line. its support for militant groups across the Middle East. ÂAll of those small mercenary countries that we see in this region are backed by America. It is Americans who instigate them and provide them with necessary means to commit these crimes,ÂŽ Rouhani said before leaving for the U.N. General Assembly in New York. Iran meanwhile summoned diplomats from Britain, Denmark and the Netherlands early Sunday for allegedly harboring Âmembers of the terrorist groupÂŽ that launched the attack. Danish Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen condemned the attack and stressed that there would be ÂconsequencesÂŽ if it turns out that those responsible have connections to Denmark. The ministry later summoned the UAEÂs envoy as well over what it called the Âirresponsible and insulting statementsÂŽ of an Emirati adviser, according to the semi-ofÂ“cial ISNA news agency. The UAE did not immediately acknowledge the summons. SaturdayÂs attack, in which militants disguised as soldiers opened Â“re on an annual Iranian military parade in Ahvaz, was the deadliest attack in the country in nearly a decade. Women and children scattered along with once-marching Revolutionary Guard soldiers as heavy gunÂ“re rang out, the chaos captured live on state television. The regionÂs Arab separatists, once only known for nighttime attacks on unguarded oil pipelines, claimed responsibility for the assault, and Iranian ofÂ“cials appeared to believe the claim. The separatists accuse IranÂs Persian-dominated government of discriminating against its ethnic Arab minority. Khuzestan province also has seen recent protests over IranÂs nationwide drought, as well as economic protests. The attack killed at least 25 people and wounded 60, according to the state-run IRNA news agency. It said gunmen wore military uniforms and targeted a riser where military and police commanders were sitting. State TV hours later reported that all four gunmen had been killed. At least eight of the dead served in the Revolutionary Guard, an elite paramilitary unit that answers only to IranÂs supreme leader, according to the semi-ofÂ“cial Tasnim news agency. The Guard responded to the attack on Sunday, warning it would seek Âdeadly and unforgiving revenge in the near future.ÂŽ Tensions have been on the rise in Iran since the Trump administration pulled out of the 2015 nuclear accord with Iran in May and began restoring 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 its Âmalign activitiesÂŽ in the region. The U.S. government nevertheless strongly condemned SaturdayÂs attack and expressed its sympathy, saying it Âcondemns all acts of terrorism and the loss of any innocent lives.ÂŽ 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. On Sunday, IS militants posted a video online of three men, two of whom who spoke in Arabic extolling the beneÂ“ts of martyrdom. A third who spoke in Farsi said they wanted to attack the Guard. The video included no time stamps, nor any speciÂ“c references to the Ahvaz attack. The attack dominated Iranian newspaper front pages on Sunday. The hard-line daily Kayhan warned that Iranians would demand Saudi Arabia feel the Âhard slapÂŽ of the countryÂs power. IranÂs government declared Monday as a nationwide public mourning day, staterun IRNA news agency reported Sunday. Also all governmental organizations, banks, schools and universities in southeastern Khuzestan province will be closed on Monday, semi-ofÂ“cial Tasnim news agency reported.ATTACKFROM PAGE 1 rapprochement. Scores of world leaders, even those representing AmericaÂs closest friends, remain wary of Trump. In the 12 months since his last visit to the U.N., the president has jolted the global status quo by pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal, starting trade conÂ”icts with China and the West and embracing RussiaÂs Vladimir Putin even as the investigation into the U.S. presidentÂs ties to Moscow moves closer to the Oval OfÂ“ce. Long critical of the United Nations, Trump delivered a warning shot ahead of his arrival by declaring that the world body had Ânot lived up toÂŽ its potential. ÂItÂs always been surprising to me that more things arenÂt resolved,ÂŽ Trump said in a weekend video message, Âbecause you have all of these countries getting together in one location but it doesnÂt seem to get there. I think it will.ÂŽ If there is a throughline to the still-evolving Trump doctrine on foreign policy, it is that the president will not subordinate American interests on the world stage, whether for economic, military or political gain. Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, told reporters in a preview of TrumpÂs visit, that the presidentÂs focus Âwill be very much on the United States,ÂŽ its role and the relations it wants to build. ÂHe is looking forward to talking about foreign policy successes the United States has had over the past year and where weÂre going to go from here,ÂŽ she said. ÂHe wants to talk about protecting U.S. sovereignty,ÂŽ while building relationships with nations that Âshare those values.ÂŽ In his four-day visit to New York, Trump will deliver major speeches and meet with representatives of a world order that he has so often upended in the past year. Like a year ago, North KoreaÂs nuclear threat will hover over the gathering, though its shadow may appear somewhat less ominous. The nuclear threat was sure to be on the agenda at TrumpÂs Â“rst meeting, a dinner with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Manhattan on Sunday night. Abe stands Â“rst among world leaders in cultivating a close relationship with the president through displays of Â”attery that he has used to advance his efforts to inÂ”uence the unpredictable American leader. On Monday afternoon, Trump planned to sit down with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who comes bearing a personal message to Trump from North KoreaÂs Kim after their interKorean talks last week. Trump and Moon were expected to sign a new version of the U.S.-South Korean trade agreement, one of TrumpÂs Â“rst successes in his effort to renegotiate trade deals on more favorable terms for the U.S. Even so, some U.S. ofÂ“cials worry that South KoreaÂs eagerness to restore relations with the North could reduce sanctions pressure on KimÂs government, hampering efforts to negotiate a nuclear accord. ÂWe have our eyes wide open,ÂŽ Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told NBCÂs ÂMeet the PressÂŽ on Sunday. ÂThere is a long ways to go to get Chairman Kim to live up to the commitment that he made to President Trump and, indeed, to the demands of the world in the U.N. Security Council resolutions to get him to fully denuclearize.ÂŽ TrumpÂs address to the General Assembly comes Tuesday, and on Wednesday he will for the Â“rst time chair the Security Council, with the stated topic of non-proliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. The subject initially was to have been Iran, but that could have allowed Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to attend, creating a potentially awkward situation for the U.S. leader. Aides say the president will also use the session to discuss North Korea and other proliferation issues. While Trump is not seeking a meeting with Rouhani, he is open to talking with the Iranian leader if Rouhani requests one, administration ofÂ“cials said. In meetings with European leaders as well as during the Security Council session, Trump plans to try to make the case that global companies are cutting ties with Iran ahead of the reimposition in Â“ve weeks of tough sanctions against Tehran. The penalties are a result of TrumpÂs decision to withdraw the U.S. from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. Trump at the time cited IranÂs role as a malign force in the region, particularly its support of terrorist groups, but also its involvement in Syria. U.S. ofÂ“cials say their priority for the region now is removing Iranian forces from Syria. Trump is also expected to deliver a fresh warning to SyriaÂs Bashar al-Assad that the use of chemical weapons against civilians in the major rebel stronghold of Idlib would have serious repercussions. Britain and France are actively planning a military response should Assad use chemical weapons again, according to U.S. ofÂ“cials. Meetings on the sidelines of the General Assembly often come in rapid succession, a wearying test for even the most experienced foreign policy team. Trump has a robust schedule during his stay in New York, including meetings with Egyptian President AbdelFattah el-Sissi, French President Emmanuel Macron, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and British Prime Minister Theresa May. But while some world leaders are still reeling from TrumpÂs deference to Putin in their summer Helsinki summit, there will not be an encore in New York: The Russian president is not expected to attend the proceedings.UNFROM PAGE 1Â”ood stage, according to National Weather Service. The Cape Fear River was expected to crest and remain at Â”ood stage through the early part of the week, and parts of Interstates 95 and 40 are expected to remain underwater for another week or more. But Â”oodwaters already receding on one stretch of Interstate 40 left thousands of rotting Â“sh on the pavement for Â“reÂ“ghters to clean up. Video showed Â“reÂ“ghters blasting the dead Â“sh to the highway shoulder with a Â“re hose in Penderlea County in eastern North Carolina. The Penderlea Fire Department posted on their website: ÂWe can add Âwashing Â“sh off of the interstateÂ to the long list of interesting things Â“reÂ“ghters get to experience.ÂŽ North Carolina Emergency Management Director Michael Sprayberry said that eastern counties continue to see major Â”ooding, including areas along the Black, Lumber, Neuse and Cape Fear rivers. 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 and then will be expanded. A FEMA coordinator said about 69,000 people from North Carolina have registered for assistance so far. ÂHurricane Florence has deeply wounded our state, wounds that will not fade soon as the Â”ood waters Â“nally recede,ÂŽ Gov. Roy Cooper said Saturday. The storm has claimed at least 43 lives since slamming into the coast Sept. 14. In Washington, Congress is starting to consider almost $1.7 billion in new money to aid recovery efforts from Florence. Lawmakers already are facing a deadline this week to fund the government before the start of the new budget year Oct. 1, and members of Congress are expected to try to act on the disaster relief along with separate legislation to fund the government. The chairman of the House Appropriations Committee said the money would be available as grants to states to help rebuild housing and public works, and assist businesses as they recover from the storm. GOP Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen of New Jersey called that Âa Â“rst roundÂŽ and that lawmakers are ready to act quickly if the federal disaster relief agency also needs more money. An economic research Â“rm estimated that Florence has caused around $44 billion in damage and lost output, which would make it one of the top 10 costliest U.S. hurricanes. The top disaster, Hurricane Katrina in 2005, cost $192.2 billion in todayÂs dollars, while last yearÂs Hurricane Harvey cost $133.5 billion MoodyÂs Analytics estimates Florence has caused $40 billion in damage and $4 billion in lost economic output, though the company stressed that the estimate is preliminary. South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster has estimated damage from the Â”ood in his state at $1.2 billion. He asked congressional leaders to hurry federal aid. In other developments, at least three wild horse herds survived Florence on North CarolinaÂs Outer Banks, but caretakers were still trying to account for one herd living on a hard-hit barrier island, the News & Observer reported Sunday. Staff members are planning to make trips to the island this week to check on the Shackleford Banks herd. Elsewhere in North Carolina, state environmental ofÂ“cials said theyÂre closely monitoring two sites where FlorenceÂs Â”oodwaters have inundated coal ash sites.FLOODINGFROM PAGE 1(AP) Forecasters say Subtropical Storm Leslie, newly formed in the North Atlantic, is expected to dissipate in a few days. But the National Hurricane Center says itÂs keeping watch on Tropical Storm Kirk, now speeding westward across tropical Atlantic waters. At 5 p.m. Sunday, the hurricane center reported, Leslie was about 1,170 miles west of the Azores and moving west at 3 mph. There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect from that storm, which packs top sustained winds of 40 mph. Meanwhile, Kirk was moving at a fast 23 mph westward across the Tropical Atlantic. The storm was centered about 645 miles southwest of the southernmost Cabo Verde Islands. Some strengthening is expected in coming days, but forecasters say Kirk is likely to begin weakening later in the week.Tropical Storm Kirk moves faster in the Atlantic PHOTO BY THE STAR-NEWS VIA APJimmy English, left, and Bubba English with Wildlife Removal Service measure a 5 1/2 foot alligator that was found under a house o Shipyard Blvd. in Wilmington N.C., Sunday.

The Sun | Monday, September 24, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger SaturdayÂs Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: You have written many times about elevated cholesterol, but I have never seen anything about low cholesterol. I am an 86-year-old man with Type 2 diabetes that has been treated with moderate success using oral medication. I am 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weigh 160 pounds. I exercise regularly. My total cholesterol has always been low (under 125). Recently it was 103 Â„ with HDL 41 (it also has always been low), LDL 38, triglycerides 112 and total/HDL ratio of 2.4. I have high blood pressure under control on lisinopril and HCTZ. My physician has suggested using a statin to raise the HDL. Â„ S.J.Z. ANSWER: Statin drugs reduce the risk of having a rst heart attack in people at moderate to high risk for heart disease. I think of statins not just as drugs that lower cholesterol or raise HDL (although they do), but also as drugs that reduce heart risk when used appropriately. This includes not only people with very high total or LDL cholesterol levels, but also those with low HDL cholesterol levels. It also includes people who, because of other reasons, have a high risk for developing heart disease within the next 10 years. The exact number varies, but most experts recommend statin drugs to those with 10-year risk that's over 10 percent (some have a lower threshold of 7.5 percent). One major risk for developing heart disease is age. Despite your low cholesterol and blood pressure, which I assume is under control, your age alone puts you at high risk for heart disease. The diabetes, even if well-controlled, adds additional risk. None of the calculators available can calculate your risk, because your total cholesterol is so low, and because they aren't valid for people over 80, but when I put in age 80 and the lowest LDL the calculator accepts, the calculator estimates your risk of developing heart disease in the next 10 years at about 50 percent. That could be reduced with treatment, and my best estimate is that your risk on medication might be around 40 percent. On the one hand, a statin is likely to decrease your risk of a heart attack. On the other hand, you have gone 86 years without developing heart disease. Further, serious side eects, although still not common, are more common in older people. There is no answer that all experts would agree on, and it is left to the judgment of you and your doctor. Finally, I should mention that some 86-year-old people are "younger" than other 86-year-olds. Since it seems you are generally doing well and keeping active, I would be more inclined to support a decision to try the medication Â„ and if you did so, being careful to look for side eects and being ready to stop the medication if necessary. The important point is that this is a recommendation, based on a guess that there is more likely to be benet than harm. However, the person whose opinion matters the most is yours: How do you feel about taking a medication every day to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke?DEAR ABBY: My son has taken it upon himself to get romantically involved with two dierent married women. He's newly divorced after a long marriage and hates the idea of being alone. He says he loves them both, but realizes there's no future with either one, so he's trying to extricate himself from the jam he's gotten into. The problem is, the women refuse to let go, and it's causing all sorts of problems. Any ideas? Â„ Dad In The Middle In New York DEAR DAD: He doesn't love either of those women; he loves what he's getting from them Â„ attention, companionship, sex. Because they are married, he doesn't have to worry about them wanting a commitment from him as a single woman might. If he really wanted to stop these dolls from "stalking" him, he would threaten to make their husbands aware of what's been going on, and THAT would be the end of it. DEAR ABBY: My mom owns two women's clothing stores near my hometown that she's had for more than 10 years. The problem is, she named them after me, and I hate it! I've tried talking to her about it many times, but every time I bring it up she gets sarcastic, says things like, "This is a fun conversation," and doesn't let me get a word out. I have tried talking to the rest of my family about it, but they don't consider it a big deal and tell me I'm being ridiculous. I have run out of ideas about what to do, so if you could give me some advice, it would really help. Â„ Angry Daughter DEAR ANGRY DAUGHTER: Many daughters would consider what your mother did to be a compliment. However, because it bothers you so much, consider going by your MIDDLE name. And, if that doesn't satisfy you, and you feel strongly enough about this, go to court and legally change your name to another one you like when you reach adulthood. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is about leaving a pet outside all year. Â„ Heloise "Dear Heloise: One of my neighbors got a large dog and keeps it in their backyard. They claim that it's too large to live in the house. If that's the case, then DON'T get a large dog. It's too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter to leave a pet outside all year. A doghouse does not provide the protection a dog needs. "Dogs and cats need human interaction, so if you're not willing to bring your pet indoors or feed it a healthy diet, then please don't get a pet or watchdog or any animal at all." Â„ Elsa and Frank T., Tempe, Ariz. Dear Readers: Here are some new uses for old neckties: Cut one down to make into a boy's tie. Braid three of them together to make a pet toy. Cut them up and make into pillows.Â„ HeloiseStatins lower heart attack risk, not just your cholesterol Two married women will not leave divorced man be Do not keep pets outsideHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby
Page 6 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Monday, September 24, 2018 ARIES (March 21-April 19). A sprinkle of anticipation will be the spice of life. Buy a ticket for a concert happening weeks from now, or plot a weekend getaway for next season. The plans will increase your enjoyment of the present. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Jealousy has a direct correlation to insecurity. People who are very secure do not experience it nearly so much. Dismiss the comments of jealous people, as those words are untruthful and born of fear. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You lavish attention and help on others and donÂt expect anything in return. This spiritual generosity will be at the root of some pretty wonderful happenings in your life, the early evidence of which comes in today. CANCER (June 22-July 22). No news can be good news, though itÂs also boring news. However, you have this way of presenting bland news as if it were the most exciting information ever imparted, which is a talent that will be useful today. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Tables will turn. Someone who used to tower over you in either stature or intention will now appear quite diminutive. Lucky for that person, being on top brings out a benevolent side of you. YouÂll take the high road. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). YouÂll polish your personal qualities, as you deserve to. After all, you are rarer than the rarest gem. You belong in the beautiful light that helps you reect your many facets. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When you were younger, you had foolish moments, same as every young person. ItÂs why you have great compassion for the dumb things people do when they donÂt know better. ItÂs also why youÂll forgive someone tonight. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Today features an encounter with someone from your past or someone who reminds you of a past relationship. This quickly will work its way into a brand new chapter. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). DonÂt worry; you, too, will get to pull up a chair and eat at the sweet banquet of success. So keep the sunny attitude, and continue working. This is going to take some time. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You donÂt want to complicate a friendship, and thatÂs why youÂll make a decision about how your relationship is going to be and then stick with it. This is whatÂs easiest and best for all. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). YouÂre in no mood to do what other people want. So, while you have the energy to tackle an entire litany of demands, the only ones that will be honored are the ones issued from you to you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Regret is not an emotion thatÂs easy to build on. Though the past choices may not have all been ideal, youÂre moving on now. Gravitate toward the emotions you can build on Â„ understanding, compassion, grace. TODAYÂS BIRTHDAY (Sept. 24). The full Aries moon on your birthday is a harbinger of victory. Whatever youÂve been ghting, youÂll emerge triumphant. More highlights: A publication will involve you. YouÂll have to decide how famous you want to be. YouÂll journey far and wide in a group of like minds. Heartfelt promises open the new year. Leo and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 2, 22, 1 and 14.

Bush-era one. ÂThe House With a Clock in Its WallsÂŽ was easily the biggest draw on a quiet weekend at North American movie theaters, where the other three new wide releases all disappointed or downright Â” opped. ÂFahrenheit 11/9ÂŽ opened with $3.1 million in 1,719 cinemas Â„ a huge debut for most documentaries but a fraction of the $23.9 million opening generated in 2004 by MooreÂs record-breaking ÂFahrenheit 9/11.ÂŽ That Â“ lm went on to make $222.4 million worldwide, a record for documentaries. MooreÂs new Â“ lm, which examines the rise of Trump and other developments like the water crisis in his hometown of Flint, Michigan, was the Â“ rst release from former Open Road chief executive Tom OrtenbergÂs new distributor, Briarcliff Entertainment. It had been predicted to open with $5 million to $8 million. But despite a surge in success for documentaries at the box ofÂ“ ce Â„ including ÂRBG,ÂŽ ÂWonÂt You Be My NeighborÂŽ and ÂThree Identical StrangersÂŽ Â„ ÂFahrenheit 11/9ÂŽ didnÂt catch on. Dan FogelmanÂs ÂLife ItselfÂŽ and the home invasion thriller ÂAssassination NationÂŽ both barely made a blip in nationwide release. Though FogelmanÂs ÂThis Is UsÂŽ is one of TVÂs top-rated series, his ÂLife ItselfÂŽ bombed with $2.1 million despite a starry cast including Olivia Wilde, Oscar Isaac and Antonio Banderas. The Â“ lm Â„ an unabashedly sentimental tale of destiny across generations Â„ drew some of the most scathing reviews of the year, landing it a 13 percent ÂfreshÂŽ rating on Rotten Tomatoes. In an interview last week, Fogelman blamed Âprimarily white male critics who donÂt like anything that has any emotion,ÂŽ prompting many female critics to point out that they, too, thought ÂLife ItselfÂŽ was, as VarietyÂs Jessica Kiang wrote, Âmanipulative and contrived.ÂŽ The Amazon Studios release, which opened in 2,609 theaters, was one of the worst performing wide releases of the year, as was Sam LevinsonÂs ÂAssassination Nation.ÂŽ The Neon thriller grossed just $1 million in 1,403 theaters. But Universal PicturesÂ ÂThe House With a Clock in Its Walls,ÂŽ based on the classic book written by John Bellairs and illustrated by Edward Gorey, capitalized on a recent dearth of child-friendly options. The Â“ lm, directed by the horror veteran Eli Roth with a budget of $40 million, stars Jack Black and Cate Blanchett. ÂThis was on the high end of any expectations,ÂŽ said Jim Orr, head of distribution at Universal. Orr credited the studioÂs producing partners at Amblin Entertainment as well as the release date in a normally slow month. ÂWe really saw an opportunity in late September to kick off the fall season with this PG family Â“ lm, and obviously it was well-positioned,ÂŽ he said. With the fall movie season getting started, a few specialty Â“ lms hit theaters, drawing packed theaters in limited release. Bleecker StreetÂs ÂColette,ÂŽ starring Keira Knightley as the iconic French author, debuted with $156,000 in four theaters, good for a per-screen average of $39,000. Jacques AudiardÂs dark Western ÂThe Sisters Brothers,ÂŽ starring Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly, opened with $122,000 in four theaters for a $30,500 per-screen average. Last weekÂs top Â“ lm, ÂThe Predator,ÂŽ slid fast with a 65 percent drop, earning $8.7 million in its second week. Holding stronger was LionsgateÂs ÂA Simple Favor.ÂŽ Paul FeigÂs suburban noir, starring Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick, dropped only 35 percent for a $10.4 million second weekend. ÂFahrenheit 11/9ÂŽ may have decent weeks ahead leading up to the November midterm elections. ComScoreÂs PostTrak survey found that 82 percent of viewers gave it four out of Â“ ve stars. It landed an A CinemaScore. ÂThose who did see it really enjoyed it,ÂŽ said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday also are included. Final domestic Â“ gures will be released Monday. 1. ÂThe House With a Clock in Its Walls,ÂŽ $26.9 million. 2. ÂA Simple Favor,ÂŽ $10.4 million. 3. ÂThe Nun,ÂŽ $10.3 million. 4. ÂThe Predator,ÂŽ $8.7 million. 5. ÂCrazy Rich Asians,ÂŽ $6.5 million. 6. ÂWhite Boy Rick,ÂŽ $5 million. 7. ÂPeppermint,ÂŽ $3.7 million. 8. ÂFahrenheit 11/9,ÂŽ $3.1 million. 9.

See more on page 6INDEX | Lottery 2 | Local Sports 3 | Pro baseball 4 | Scoreboard 5 | Colleges 6 | NFL 7 | Auto Racing 8 The hat sitting innocently on my kitchen counter didnÂt stand a chance as I stormed past in a huff, swiping it across the room as my rage festered. I was beside myself. In a tight, two score game against the Redskins on Sunday with my Green Bay Packers needing every defensive stop necessary, Clay Matthews got called for his third roughing the passer penalty of the three-week-old season. To recap, the NFL changed the rule this offseason Â„ funny enough it was due to a hit on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers that ended his season Â„ to protect their money makers. The new rule doesnÂt allow defenders to drive quarterbacks into the ground on hits, something that against any other player on the offense is referred to as a Âtackle.ÂŽ It was an iffy game of ofÂ“ciating in my opinion. I found myself loathing the zebras running around the Â“eld, grazing on the PackersÂ chances of winning. All the while my Â“ance Taylor looks at me with a smirk, knowing how irrational IÂm acting. But she knows this is what sheÂs marrying into. My reaction to the refs was not unlike the reactions IÂve heard countless times on the sidelines of high school games. Some warranted, some a little biased. But sports have that funny way of taking logic out of things. My favorite insinuation is that these mostly-retired, minimally-paid referees at the high school level take bribes to make certain calls. Because why not take $20 to throw a meaningless non-district game that was probably over after the Â“rst quarter? It always seems to happen when one team Â„ usually the one currently behind Â„ gets a string of penalties called on it. Are these amateur-level refs perfect? Far from it. In my four years of covering games at this level IÂve seen a game or two decided by a missed call or a misinterpreted rule. Port CharlotteÂs Shevon Pearce got a pick-six taken off the board against Lemon Bay due to a ref thinking the play was over after he retreated into the end zone brieÂ”y on his return. The fans of Sarasota High School had a few gripes that were legitimate on Friday. A nasty helmet-to-helmet hit on an interception return went uncalled when a much-less violent one was Â”agged two drives later. But thatÂs what you get in high school. ItÂs not an ideal system. Mistakes will most certainly be made. But they do what they can. And so far, it hasnÂt cost anyone the game Â„ yet. Despite the good or bad ofÂ“ciating, By BEN BAUGHSPORTS EDITORItÂs the nationÂs fastest growing sport. The sport of pickleball has a well-established footprint in Charlotte County. And later this fall, Punta Gorda will be in the national spotlight as Charlotte High School will serve as the host site for the Amateur Athletic Union tournament. The 2018 AAU National Outdoor Pickleball Championships will be held Nov. 27 through Dec. 2. The tournament will consist of a number of divisions, including those for junior age players, 18 and under. The only requirement for junior age players is that they must be AAU members, said Sue Carman, PicklePlex director of fundraising. Junior age players interested in participating, who arenÂt already AAU members can register on line at aausports. org. The cost to become a member is $14. The girls and boys doubles division will be held Dec. 1 and the singles division Dec. 2. The AAU expects 500 participants for this yearÂs event, said Carman. The tournament is expected to double in size for the 2019 edition of the event, once it moves to PicklePlex of Punta Gorda at Florida Southwest College. ÂCharlotte County Tourism, Beef OÂBradyÂs and the PicklePlex board have been instrumental in bringing this tournament to Punta Gorda,ÂŽ said Carman. Those interested in participating can register at pickleballtournaments.comBy DOUG FERGUSONAP GOLF WRITERATLANTA Â„ A comeback not even Tiger Woods saw coming a year ago. A chaotic celebration that golf hasnÂt seen even in the best of times. Woods delivered the perfect ending to his amazing return from four back surgeries on Sunday with a performance that felt like the old days. He left the competition feeling hopeless as he built a five-shot lead early and hung on to win the Tour Championship. Woods raised both arms over his head after he tapped in for par and a 1-over 71 for a two-shot victory over Billy Horschel, the 80th victory of his PGA Tour career and his first in more than five years. ÂIt was a grind out there,ÂŽ Woods said. ÂI loved every bit of it.ÂŽ It felt like a coronation coming down the 18th green after he hit his second shot to the par 5 safely in a bunker in front of the green. The crowd came through the ropes and walked behind him, just like that walk from the left side of the 18th fairway when he won the Masters in 1997, and when the enormous gallery of Chicago followed after him when he won the Western Open that summer. They chased after any inch of grass they could find to watch the ending. This felt just as big as a major, maybe better considering where Woods had been. ÂI didnÂt want to get run over,ÂŽ Woods said with a laugh. Only when he was on the green, the last one to putt after Rory McIlroy tapped in for birdie, did it start to sink in. ÂAll of a sudden it hit me that I was going to win the By STEVEN WINEAP SPORTS WRITERMIAMI GARDENS, Fla. Â„ Receiver Albert Wilson threw a 52-yard touchdown pass to put the Miami Dolphins ahead midway through the fourth quarter, and then turned a short reception into a 74-yard score that sealed a 28-20 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. Miami coach Adam Gase used creative play-calling to overcome a wave of injuries and penalties, and a 17-minute deÂ“cit in time of possession. The Dolphins scored on a pair of shovel passes by Ryan Tannehill that each traveled less than a yard Â„ one on the Â”ip to Wilson, and an earlier similar pass that Jakeem Grant caught before turning the corner for an 18-yard score. ÂWe made some big plays when it mattered,ÂŽ Tannehill said. ÂWith the explosiveness we have, we just have to keep doing our job and not press.ÂŽ Thanks to all the Â”ashy plays, the Dolphins are 3-0 for only the third time since 1998, with a game at AFC East rival New England next. ÂWeÂre on the right track,ÂŽ Tannehill said. ÂAre we there yet? No. But the patterns weÂre establishing are going to take us there.ÂŽ The Raiders, led by Â“rst-year coach Jon Gruden, are 0-3 for the Â“rst time since 2014, when they started 0-10. TheyÂve blown a second-half lead in all three defeats. Oakland outgained the Dolphins, and Derek Carr threw for 345 yards. But Xavien Howard intercepted him twice deep in Miami territory, and the Dolphins mounted a Â“rst-half goal line stand to stay in the game. ÂWe got hurt on a trick play and didnÂt Â“nish some drives in the red zone,ÂŽ Gruden said. ÂThatÂs the story of the game.ÂŽ Trickery gave the Dolphins their Â“rst lead in the fourth quarter. Tannehill handed off to Frank Gore, who tossed the ball to Wilson on an end-around. Wilson Â„ a quarterback in high school Â„ then lobbed the Â“rst pass of his career to a wide-open Grant, who outmaneuvered two Raiders to the end zone. ÂI said he better catch it, and he better not get tackled,ÂŽ Wilson said.

Page 2 SP www.yoursun.com The Sun | Monday, September 24, 2018 By IAN HARRISONASSOCIATED PRESSTORONTO Â„ Blake Snell won his ninth straight start to increasing his major league-leading victories total to 21, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-2 on Sunday to stave off elimination. Tampa Bay began the day 7 games behind Oakland for the ALÂs second wild card and would be eliminated with one more loss or win by the Athletics, who hosted Minnesota later in the day. Snell (21-5) struck out 11 in 6 2/3 shutout innings, broke the Rays season record for wins set by David Price in 2012 and lowered his ERA to 1.90, the best in the AL. He has not lost since July 12 and is 9-0 with a 1.03 ERA starting with a win at Toronto on Aug. 10. He matched the Tampa Bay record for consecutive winning decisions set by Matt Moore from Sept. 29, 2012, to May 19, 2013. C.J. Cron and Brandon Lowe homered for the Rays, who are 16-5 in September and a major league-best 25-7 since Aug. 19. Tommy Pham reached base three times and scored twice as the Rays improved to 11-5 against Toronto thus year. He walked in the Â“rst, singled and scored on Joey WendleÂs two-out double in the fourth, then walked and scored on CronÂs twoout double in the sixth. Cron connected off Joe Biagini in the eighth, his 28th. Jose Fernandez walked Wendle, and Lowe followed with a two-run drive. Snell allowed three hits and walked two. Four relievers followed, including Sergio Romo, who pitched around a pair of singles in the ninth for his 23rd save in 31 chances. Blue Jays rookie lefthander Ryan Borucki (4-5) allowed two runs and three hits in seven innings.TRAINERÂS ROOMRays : CF Kevin Kiermaier stayed in the game after crashing hard into the scoreboard making a leaping catch on Randal Grichuk to end the fourth, but was replaced by Austin Meadows in the eighth. Kiermaier did not play Saturday because manager Kevin Cash said the two-time Gold Glove winner was banged up. Kiermaier also made a great catch on Jonathan DavisÂ sinking line drive for the Â“nal out of the third, stranding a runner at Â“rst. UP NEXTRays: Tampa Bay has not announced a starter for MondayÂs home series opener against the New York Yankees. Blue Jays: RHP Marco Estrada (7-13, 5.57) starts the opener of the three game series against visiting Houston.

Power and Pleasure Lately IÂve received letters from women about a ÂÂlittle secretÂÂ thatÂs made their sex life absolutely explosive! This one from Tina in Texas got a little spicy! (Those Texas women tell it like it is!) Tina writes: Dear Karen, For years my hus band and I had a great love life. He was sexy and passionate and so conÂ“dent. But when he reached his 50s, he started to struggle with getting and keeping an erection. The few times we did have sex, his erection was deÂ“ nitely softer, leaving us both unsatisÂ“ed. He tried every product out there; prescriptions, creams, testosterone, enhancement pillsÂƒ but nothing worked. I know this is terrible, but I found myself thinking ÂÂMy strong, passionate husband has become a sexual weakling.ÂÂ I had no idea it would all turn around in just 3 weeks! Last month, he came home from a business trip in Europe and shocked me with more sexual energy and pas sion than heÂs had in years. Hard as a rock, he tossed me around the bedroom like we were newlywedsÂ and gave me a night IÂll never forget! It was incredible Â… and so ex citing! He Â”at wore me out that night and itÂs been like that ever since. His erections are harder than ever, and the best part is his climax is so long and powerful, they spark the most in tense, toe-curling ÂmomentsÂ IÂve ever had! So here we are, enjoying the best sex of our livesÂƒ in our late 50Âs! When I asked my husband what caused such a dramatic change, he said on his trip he stayed in a hotel room next to an Italian nutritionist and his wife. Through the walls, he heard them passionately making love every single night, and sometimes again in the morning. One afternoon, he saw the husband leave their room and he couldnÂt believe it. The man looked much too old to be having so much sex. My husband couldnÂt help himself, so he asked the man his se cret. The nutritionist smiled, introduced himself as Vito, and told my husband he was 78 years old, his wife 65, and that after 32 years of marriage, their sex life was bet ter than ever. Then he took a small pack from his satchel, gave it to my husband, and said ÂThese tablets come from a small village where theyÂre culti vated organically from the most potent sexual extracts on earth. Be lieve me, they will give you a strong desire for sex, powerful erec tions, and a climax like youÂve never felt be fore! Then he laughed and said, ÂYouÂll be come an Italian Stallion, like me!ÂŽ Italian Stallion is right! These past several weeks have been a dream. My husbandÂs desire for me is through the roof. He takes me whenever he wants, and he even wakes up most days with a Âmorning salute!Â like he did years ago. I love it! HeÂs a sexual pow erhouse, beaming with conÂ“dence, and our marriage is stronger than ever. Karen, hereÂs why IÂm writing you. The pack of tablets is about to run out and we both desperately want more. IÂve looked ev erywhere but canÂt Â“nd them. Do you know anything about these Âsuper-sex tab letsÂŽ from Europe and how to get some here in the States? Sincerely, Tina C., Fort Worth, TX Tina, you and the rest of my readers are in luck because I do know about these secret European sex tablets. Ever wonder why older men from Italy and all over Eu rope have the lowest use of ED drugs, but are known worldwide for staying energized, sexually passionate well into their 80Âs? Well, for years, these men have relied on a unique blossom seed extract called P rovarin to enhance their sex ual power and performance. Milled on the fertile plains of northern Eu rope, ProvarinÂs extracts are harvested along the Baltic Sea where pure seeds, nutrient-rich soil, and perfect weather conditions combine to deliver maximum sexual potency. As Giovanni from Milan put it, ÂItÂs like sexual rocket fuel especially for us older guys!ÂŽ The best part from a womanÂs perspective, as you well know, is the extreme hardness and ongoing power is enough to send us over the blissful edge! I found out about Pro varin a few years ago when I was dating a cowboy from Wyo ming. He took Provarin every morning and oh my, that good olÂ boy sure rocked my nights! All-natural and safe to take, Provarin is still a well-kept secret for those in the know and they like to keep it that way. An oldschool, family busi ness, they donÂt have a website and do very little advertising. They donÂt need to. Longtime customers and word of mouth ensures their limited stock is sold out every year. They do have a dis tributer in the States and when I reached out for this article, a spokesman told me theyÂre giving special discounts and FREE 30-Pill PACKS to new customers while supplies last. He went on to say their telephone hotline guarantees you can place an order or request a brochure in under 4 minutes and it will be shipped the very same day. So there you go, Tina and the rest of you readers! Just give them a call today at 1-800-538-0543 ArenÂt you glad you asked?The European Super-Sex Pill Women Are Raving AboutÂƒ Now Available in the U.S., Giving Men 30 Pills Free ÂMy husband shocked me with more sexual passion than heÂs had in years. He tossed me around the bedroom like we were newlyweds, and gave me a night IÂll never forget! It was incredible Â… and so exciting!ÂŽKaren James is a noted journalist who specializes in relationships, romance, and sex.

The Sun | Monday, September 24, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3 Sarasota still had little chance against the scavenging Pirates of Port Charlotte on Friday. The Pirates (4-1, 0-1) still couldnÂt shake the turnover bug, but it didnÂt come back to haunt them this week. Next week against district-leading North Fort Myers, it might. The Pirates werenÂt the only ones earning big wins. Though it wasnÂt a blowout, CharlotteÂs 28-20 win over non-powder-puff opponent Fort Myers was a telling one. While the season-opening win over Dunbar High School looked like a solid upset at the time, the Tarpons (4-1, 1-0) have proven to be far better than the fading Tigers. With a signature win over the high-octane Green Wave, thanks to the offensive and defensive heroics of Jeremiah Harvey, Charlotte is making me yearn for that Week 10 matchup with the Pirates. For the other area teams, things didnÂt go as planned. North Port simply couldnÂt get its offense moving and was held scoreless with 19 yards in the second half while giving up 10 sacks to the DeSoto defense in a 20-9 loss.Similarly, the struggles of Lemon Bay (0-4, 0-1) prevailed Friday as they fell 28-6 to Cardinal Mooney. Weirdly they started slow and Â“nished strong, racking up 247 yards on the ground. Lemon Bay dominated the time of possession and held the Cougars to a single Â“rst down in the second half, but the early deÂ“cit was too much to overcome. In other area news, CharlotteÂs volleyball team showed its teeth with a sweep of North Fort Myers on Tuesday, the Red KnightsÂ Â“rst district loss of the season. On Saturday, varsity runners from Charlotte, Lemon Bay and North Port converged on the BobcatsÂ home course for the North Port Invite. Both North Port teams Â“nished in the top Â“ve of the Large School division while the Charlotte girls team Â“nished eighth in the elite division.WEEKFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY TIM KERNSean Shamasian robs the Cardinal Mooney receiver of a touchdown with a great interception to give the Manta Rays some Â“rst half momentum.

Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com The Sun | Monday, September 24, 2018 By RALPH D. RUSSOAP COLLEGE FOOTBALL WRITERAfter a season-high seven ranked teams lost, the back half of the AP college football poll got a makeover on Sunday. Five teams entered the Top 25, including No. 17 Kentucky for the Â“rst time since 2007. At the top it was mostly status quo, with Alabama, Georgia, Clemson and Ohio State staying Nos. 1-4. LSU moved up to No. 5, swapping places with Oklahoma after the Sooners needed overtime to get by Army. Alabama received a season-high 60 Â“rst-place votes Clemson had one. Kentucky is unbeaten and 2-0 in the Southeastern Conference for the Â“rst time since 1977. The last time the Wildcats were ranked was Nov. 11, 2007. Kentucky reached No. 8 under coach Rich Brooks that season and upset No. 1 and eventual national champion LSU, but Â“nished unranked.POLL POINTSThe Atlantic Coast Conference has three ranked teams in the Top 25 for the third time in four regular-season polls. No. 3 Clemson has played mostly as advertised and No. 16 Miami is slowly creeping back up the rankings after a lopsided opening loss to LSU sent the Hurricanes tumbling out of the top 10. Florida State lasted one week in the rankings and now Virginia Tech is out after maybe the most stunning result of the season so far. The Hokies lost 49-35 at previously winless Old Dominion. Boston College seemed to be emerging as a possible dark horse, but the Eagles also lasted only week. BC lost 30-13 at Purdue on Saturday after being No. 23 last week. Unbeaten Duke entered the rankings at No. 22 this week to keep the ACC from becoming the Â“rst Power Five conference to have a week this season with only two ranked teams. Two seasons removed from Clemson winning a national title, LouisvilleÂs Lamar Jackson winning the Heisman Trophy Â„ with ClemsonÂs Deshaun Watson as runner-up Â„ and the ACC Â“nishing with a 9-3 record in bowl games, the conference could use a team or two to separate from the mediocrity. North Carolina State (3-0) and Syracuse (4-0) are the only other unbeaten teams in the ACC, along with Clemson.UP AND DOWNNo. 14 Michigan is back where it started the season, moving up Â“ve spots this week. Miami also jumped Â“ve places, but that movement had as much to do with the teams around the Wolverines and Hurricanes losing. The seven ranked teams that lost Saturday were positioned between No. 13 and No. 23 in the rankings. Among the losers, No. 23 Mississippi State, pounded by Kentucky, and No. 19 Oregon, which let a victory slip away against No. 7 Stanford, managed to remain ranked. The Bulldogs dropped nine spots. The Ducks moved up one.INJoining Kentucky and Duke, ranked for the Â“rst time since October 2015, were two newcomers to this seasonÂs rankings and one returner. Â„ No. 18 Texas, which started the season ranked No. 23 but lost its opener to Maryland, has its Â“rst three-game winning streak in four years. Â„ No. 24 California slipped into the rankings for the Â“rst time since October 2015 during an off week. The Bears have wins against BYU and North Carolina. Â„ No. 25 Texas Tech is in after a convincing victory at Oklahoma State. The Red Raiders were ranked brieÂ”y last season.OUT:Exiting the rankings along with Virginia Tech and Boston College were two Big 12 teams and one from the SEC. Â„ Oklahoma State, a week after impressing at home, is out. Â„ TCU followed up its loss to Ohio State by falling at Texas. Â„ No. 22 Texas A&M played Alabama closer than any team so far this season, but it was not good enough to stay ranked.CONFERENCE CALLSEC Â„ 6 teams (Nos. 1, 2, 5, 10, 17, 23). Big Ten Â„ 5 (Nos. 4, 9, 14, 15, 21). Big 12 Â„ 4 (Nos. 6, 12, 18, 25). Pac-12 Â„ 4 (Nos. 7, 11, 19, 24). ACC Â„ 3 (Nos. 3, 16, 22). Independent Â„ 2 (Nos. 8, 20). American Â„ 1 (13).RANKED VS.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: AP Top 25 By TIM REYNOLDSAP SPORTS WRITERCORAL GABLES, Fla. Â„ The last time that Miami quarterback NÂKosi Perry started a real football game was 22 months ago, back when he was still in high school. That might be about to change. As if a short week wasnÂt going to present enough challenges for the Hurricanes Â„ who open defense of their Atlantic Coast Conference Coastal Division title at home Thursday night against North Carolina Â„ thereÂs also a quarterback decision to be made. Perry completed 17 of 25 passes for 224 yards and three scores as Miami (3-1) topped FIU 31-17 on Saturday, and now seems poised to bump Malik Rosier atop the HurricanesÂ depth chart. ÂWhen the time comes, whoever I think is the best guy to give us a chance to win will be the guy,ÂŽ coach Mark Richt said. That time seems to be here. Miami rose Â“ve spots to No. 16 in the AP Top 25 on Sunday, a day thatÂs typically a recovery one for the Hurricanes. But with a game on Thursday, Miami is in no-days-off mode: The HurricanesÂ coaches were studying Â“lm on North Carolina a couple of hours after the FIU game ended, and Richt plans four straight practice days leading up to the game against the Tar Heels. Perry will be getting Â“rst-team reps in those practices, maybe more than ever before. ÂI have a lot of conÂ“dence in NÂKosi,ÂŽ defensive lineman Gerald Willis III said. ÂHeÂs showing me a lot in practice. He plays like heÂs an older guy. IÂm really happy for him that heÂs getting the chance with opportunities heÂs having.ÂŽ Rosier has started 17 consecutive games for Miami, and the Hurricanes are 13-4 in those contests (not including his 1-0 record as a pinch-hit starter in the 2015 game at Duke that ended on an eight-lateral kick return for a Miami touchdown). Even while he and plenty of other top Miami offensive players dealt with injuries last season, Rosier led Miami to its Â“rst ACC title game appearance and a berth in the Orange Bowl. But heÂs never been very accurate, and thatÂs ultimately why he seems vulnerable now. Out of the 128 players with more than 200 pass attempts since the start of last season, only 13 have a lower completion rate than RosierÂs 53.7 percent. Perry, meanwhile, came off the bench Saturday and tied a Miami record with 14 completions in a 15-pass span. He started 10 for 10. ÂI wasnÂt really paying attention to the completions,ÂŽ Perry said. ÂIt just came natural for me.ÂŽ Perry came to Miami and was considered the heir apparent to Brad Kaaya. He committed to the Hurricanes when Al Golden was coach, then decommitted when Richt was hired and eventually re-commited. Perry said RichtÂs sales pitch was simple: The offense youÂll run at Miami is what can get you to the NFL. After two years of developing, Perry might be ready in RichtÂs eyes to start fulÂ“lling that vision and running his offense for real. The waiting game could be over. ÂThis profession, it is not add water, instant player,ÂŽ Miami defensive coordinator Manny Diaz said. ÂTheyÂve just got to do it over and over again. I think that is what you are seeing.ÂŽFor MiamiÂs NÂKosi Perry, the waiting game might be over AP PHOTOMiami quarterback NÂKosi Perry passes during the Â“rst half of an NCAA college football game against FIU. By MARK LONGAP SPORTS WRITERJACKSONVILLE, Fla. Â„ Marcus Mariota came off the bench and directed three scoring drives, including one in the fourth quarter, and Tennessee beat Jacksonville 9-6 Sunday for their third straight victory in the series. Mariota replaced Blaine Gabbert in the Â“rst quarter after Gabbert was knocked out of the game with a concussion. Mariota sat out last weekÂs victory against Houston because of an elbow injury sustained in the season opener. Mariota had been experiencing arm weakness along with numbness and tingling in two Â“ngers. The injury affects the velocity and spin he gets on the football. Mariota wore a glove on his injured right hand and was able to do just enough to beat the Jaguars (2-1) for the third straight time and Â“fth time in the past six meetings. Mariota completed 12 of 18 passes for 100 yards and ran for 51 more, including a 15-yard gain on a thirdand-1 play late. The Titans (2-1) milked the clock from there and ended up celebrating an early lead in the AFC South. Blake Bortles had one Â“nal chance to rally Jacksonville, but did little to get into Â“eld-goal range with 19 seconds remaining. The Titans talked openly about feeling as if they should have been division champs after sweeping Jacksonville last year. The Jags won the division and ended up advancing to the AFC title game. Jacksonville welcomed a chance to make a statement about the division, but Â”opped on the Â“eld. Bortles was mediocre at best, and the Jaguars mounted little on the ground. Bortles completed 21 of 34 passes for 155 yards. Josh LamboÂs 38-yard Â“eld goal tied the game with 10:48 remaining. It was LamboÂs 16th consecutive made Â“eld goal, the thirdbest streak in franchise history. But JacksonvilleÂs vaunted defense couldnÂt hold down the stretch, allowing a 65-yard drive with the game on the line.NO FOURNETTEJaguars running back Leonard Fournette missed his second straight game because of a strained right hamstring. Jacksonville ran for 87 yards without him. It didnÂt help that the team was down two offensive line starters Â„ left tackle Cam Robinson and right guard A.J. Cann.KEY INJURIESTitans punt returner Adoree Jackson joined Gabbert in the locker room in the second quarter and was later ruled out with a concussion. ... Titans LB Jayon Brown got hurt late in the game but jogged off the Â“eld. Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell left the game in the fourth quarter with a right ankle injury. Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus left brieÂ”y in the second half with a shoulder injury.UP NEXTTitans return home to take on defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia.

The Sun | Monday, September 24, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 7 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Â„ Josh Allen played with the poise of a well-seasoned quarterback for the Buffalo Bills by accounting for three touchdowns in his Â“rst road start in the NFL. Allen made MinnesotaÂs Kirk Cousins look like the raw rookie in a stunning 27-6 upset of the Vikings on Sunday. Cousins had three turnovers, including a lost fumble on a third-down sack inside MinnesotaÂs 20yard line, on each of the Â“rst two possessions. Buffalo turned those recoveries into 10 points and was on cruise control by midway through the second quarter as the crowd at U.S. Bank Stadium cranked up the boos. The Vikings (1-1-1) were 16-point favorites when the game began, allowing the Bills (1-2) to become only the sixth such underdog in the NFLÂs last 81 point spreads that big. SAINTS 43, FALCONS 37, OTATLANTA (AP) Â„ Drew BreesÂ 1-yard run capped an 80-yard touchdown drive to open overtime. BreesÂ score came after his apparent 3-yard TD pass to Alvin Kamara was overturned on video review that determined KamaraÂs knee was down before the goal line. Brees scored on a keeper on the following play, giving the Saints (2-1) the win on the day the 39-year-old quarterback set the NFL record for career completions. BreesÂ biggest play before the winner might have been his improbable 7-yard scoring run with 1:15 remaining that forced overtime. He ran to his left and then spun to avoid tackle attempts by Brian Poole and Robert Alford. AtlantaÂs Matt Ryan had his Â“rst career game with Â“ve scoring passes, including three to rookie Calvin Ridley. That wasnÂt enough for the Falcons (1-2) against the high-scoring Saints, who gained 534 yards.EAGLES 20, COLTS 16PHILADELPHIA (AP) Â„ Carson Wentz threw a touchdown pass on his Â“rst drive in nine months, then Wendell Smallwood ran in from the 4 for the go-ahead score. Adam Vinatieri tied Morten AndersenÂs career record of 565 Â“eld goals by connecting on all three tries, but the Colts (1-2) couldnÂt take advantage of two turnovers by Wentz inside the 20 in the second half. The defending Super Bowl champion Eagles (2-1) needed two defensive stops against Andrew Luck in the Â“nal 90 seconds. Indy had a Â“rst down at the Eagles 11 and two cracks from the 4, but LuckÂs pass to T.Y. Hilton sailed over his shoulder in the left corner of the end zone on third down and Derek Barnett sacked Luck on fourth down.RAMS 35, CHARGERS 23LOS ANGELES (AP) Â„ Jared Goff passed for 354 yards and three touchdowns, and Todd Gurley rushed for 105 yards and another score, leading the Rams over the Chargers in the franchisesÂ Â“rst meeting since their relocation to Los Angeles. Two seasons after the Rams kicked off professional footballÂs return to the nationÂs second-largest market after 21 years away, two NFL teams based in Los Angeles met on the Â“eld for the Â“rst time since Nov. 13, 1994. The teams put on an uncommonly entertaining show for a Coliseum crowd of 68,947 containing a surprisingly signiÂ“cant turnout of Chargers fans, but the RamsÂ offensive brilliance kept them ahead all day. Philip Rivers passed for 226 yards and hit Mike Williams with two touchdown passes for the Chargers (1-2), whose two losses have come against the powerhouse Chiefs and Rams without injured pass rusher Joey Bosa. Melvin Gordon rushed for 80 yards and a score.SEAHAWKS 24, COWBOYS 13SEATTLE (AP) Â„ Russell Wilson threw for two touchdowns in the Â“rst half, Chris Carson added a 5-yard TD run in early in the fourth quarter, and the Seahawks avoided an 0-3 start. Wilson hit Jaron Brown on an 18-yard touchdown early in the second quarter, and later found Tyler Lockett streaking up the sideline on a 52-yard scoring pass as Seattle (1-2) built a 17-3 halftime lead and cruised past the Cowboys. The duo of Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott didnÂt have the answers against a Seattle defense that had safety Earl Thomas on the Â“eld and welcomed back Bobby Wagner after the SeahawksÂ defensive leader missed Week 2 with a groin injury. Prescott was intercepted twice by Thomas including with 3:09 remaining at the Seattle 15 on a deÂ”ected pass, with Thomas bowing to the Dallas sideline at the end of the play.CHIEFS 38, 49ERS 27KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Â„ After winning his Â“rst three starts, all away from Arrowhead Stadium, second-year pro Patrick Mahomes Â“nally made his regular-season home debut and torched San FranciscoÂs banged-up pass defense for 314 yards and three touchdowns. Mahomes now has 13 touchdown passes without an interception, breaking the NFL record for TD passes in the Â“rst three weeks of a season. Peyton Manning threw 12 to start the 2013 campaign. MahomesÂ touchdown passes to Chris Conley, Demetrius Harris and Sammy Watkins along with a pair of TD runs by Kareem Hunt, helped Kansas City (3-0) race to a 35-7 lead late in the Â“rst half.PANTHERS 31, BENGALS 21CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Â„ Cam Newton threw for two touchdowns and ran for two others, while Christian McCaffrey racked up a career-high 184 yards rushing. Newton completed 15 of 24 passes for 150 yards and ran for 36 yards as the Panthers (2-1) won their seventh straight home game going back to last season. McCaffrey, who tied a franchise record with 14 receptions last week against Atlanta, did his damage on the ground this time with 28 carries. He surpassed his previous career high of 66 yards rushing and became the Â“rst Carolina player with a 100-yard receiving game and a 100-yard rushing game in back-to-back weeks. Andy Dalton was 29 of 46 with two touchdowns, but was intercepted four times, including twice by rookie cornerback Donte Jackson.RAVENS 27, BRONCOS 14BALTIMORE (AP) Â„ Joe Flacco picked apart DenverÂs depleted defense for 277 yards and a touchdown. Connecting with eight receivers, Flacco went 25 for 40 without an interception on a rainy afternoon. He threw 28 passes in the Â“rst half, when Baltimore (2-1) took control. The Ravens turned to their defense in the fourth quarter, twice stopping drives inside their 15. FlaccoÂs success came against a Denver backÂ“eld that began the day without injured cornerback Adam Jones (thigh) and lost cornerback Tramaine Brock (groin) in the Â“rst quarter. REDSKINS 31, PACKERS 17LANDOVER, Md. (AP) Â„ Adrian Peterson ran for 120 yards and a pair of 2-yard scores, Alex Smith threw two touchdown passes Â„ all in the Â“rst half Â„ and the Redskins held on over a gimpy Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, who again had complaints about a roughing-the-passer penalty on Clay Matthews. On a rainy afternoon, the Redskins (2-1) moved out to leads of 14-0 and, at halftime, 28-10, by putting together TD drives of 74, 75, 79 and 98 yards. Smith connected for TDs of 46 yards to Paul Richardson on the gameÂs fourth play and of 9 to Jamison Crowder in the second quarter. Playing with a bulky brace on his left knee, which he hurt in Week 1, Rodgers hobbled and limped around, and couldnÂt do enough to get the Packers (1-1-1) back into the game. He Â“nished 27 for 44 for 265 yards with two TDs.GIANTS 27, TEXANS 22HOUSTON (AP) Â„ Eli Manning threw for 297 yards and two touchdowns and rookie Saquon Barkley added a score. The Giants (1-2) were up by 14 at halftime but had trouble moving the ball in the second half and the Texans (0-3) had cut the lead to Â“ve before Manning threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard with about two minutes left. Deshaun Watson threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Lamar Miller with 1 second left to cut the lead to 27-22, but New York recovered the onside kick. Watson threw for 385 yards and two scores, but his interception was one of two second-half turnovers by the Texans, off to their worst start since dropping their Â“rst four games of 2008.BEARS 16, CARDINALS 14GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Â„ Cody Parkey kicked his third Â“eld goal of the game, a 43-yarder with 4:31 to remaining, to rally the Bears. Sam Bradford threw two Â“rst-quarter touchdown passes to put the Cardinals up 14-0, but was replaced by rookie Josh Rosen after fumbling the ball deep in Chicago territory late in the game. Rosen, the 10th overall pick in this yearÂs draft out of UCLA, drew a standing ovation from the Cardinals crowd as he jogged on the Â“eld. He drove Arizona past midÂ“eld, but on fourthand-5 from the Bears 45, his pass was intercepted by Bryce Callahan with 1:10 to play. Arizona got the ball back one more time and the game ended with Rosen sacked by Sherrick McManis, who also had one of two of BradfordÂs interceptions.As massive underdogs, Bills thump Vikings NFL: Sunday roundup TITANS 9, JAGUARS 6Tennessee 3 0 3 3 Â„ 9 Jacksonville 0 3 0 3 Â„ 6 First Quarter TenÂ„FG Succop 39, 4:59.

I started tearing up a little bit,ÂŽ Woods said. ÂI canÂt believe I pulled this off.ÂŽ He paused as his voice started to crack. More roars. Several players, from Zach Johnson to Rickie Fowler to Horschel, waited to greet him. It was Johnson who unveiled red shirts at the Ryder Cup two years ago in the team room that said, ÂMake Tiger Great Again.ÂŽ ÂThey knew what I was struggling with,ÂŽ Woods said. ÂIt was special to see them.ÂŽ One year ago, Woods was still waiting for his lower back to fuse and wasnÂt sure he could ever play again. He told stories of being unable to get off the couch to watch his kids play soccer, much less to chip and putt. He said after the second and third back surgeries in the latter end of 2015 that he already has achieved plenty in golf and anything else would be Âgravy.ÂŽ He was becoming a legend only in video highlights. Woods brought it all to life over four days at East Lake, and the players who have taken turns at No. 1 during his absence caught the full brunt of it. McIlroy faded early. Justin Rose faded late. All that was left was the 42-year-old Woods in that Sunday red shirt blazing brighter than ever and a smile he couldnÂt shake walking up to collect another trophy. He finished at 11-under 269 and won $1.62 million, along with a $3 million bonus for finishing second in the FedEx Cup. The only disappointment Â„ a minor one under the circumstances Â„ was realizing as he came down the 18th that Rose had made birdie to finish in a three-way tie for fourth, which gave him the FedEx Cup and the $10 million bonus. Without that birdie, Woods would have won his third FedEx Cup title after starting at No. 20 going into the Tour Championship. ÂCongrats, Rosie,ÂŽ Woods told him. ÂWorld No. 1, hell of a season.ÂŽ Actually, former world No. 1 for Rose. His four bogeys over the last 10 holes cost him the No. 1 ranking back to Dustin Johnson, who shot 67 and finished third. But this wasnÂt about the FedEx Cup or even the world ranking. This is TigerÂs big day, and nothing was going to change it. Woods had never lost when leading by three shots or more going into the final round. That was when he was regularly winning multiple times every season, compiling trophies at a rate never before seen in golf. Was anything different having gone more than five years without winning? Rose had said it was a bit more unknown, and ÂthereÂs a lot on it for himÂŽ as well as everyone else. But this was still WoodsÂ arena. The walk from the putting green snakes some 80 yards across the road and through a gallery, and everyone could hear him coming from the procession of cheering. And within the opening hour, the Tour Championship had that inevitable feeling. No one brings excitement like Woods, even when he plays so good and so smart that he eliminates any potential for drama. The buzz was endless. A couple of teenagers climbed into a tree to see him made a 10-foot birdie on the first hole. When the putt dropped and cheers died, there was a wild sprint some 200 yards up the hill as fans tried to get into position for the next shot. He tapped in for par, and another stampede ensued to line the third fairway. On and on it went. No one wanted to miss a shot. A year ago, there was no guarantee anyone would see much of Woods, much less Woods winning. HeÂs back again. This victory, his first since the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone in August 2013 Â„ 1,876 days, to be exact Â„ brought him to No. 13 in the world. Not bad for a 42-year-old with four back surgeries who returned to competition in December at No. 1,199. The next stop for Woods is to board a plane with the rest of his U.S. teammates for France and the Ryder Cup.TIGERFROM PAGE 1 second interception, Wilson scooted around the end after taking TannehillÂs short pitch and scored the clincher. Wilson and Grant ran side by side in the clear for the Â“nal 30 yards and exchanged a gleeful high Â“ve approaching the end zone. ÂWeÂve got guys who can do a lot of different things,ÂŽ Gase said. ÂThey can throw it, they can run it.ÂŽ OaklandÂs ball-control approach took a toll on a Miami front four that lost three players. Akeem Spence was ejected, and William Hayes and Andre Branch suffered knee injuries. The RaidersÂ Jordy Nelson had 139 yards receiving in the Â“rst seven minutes, and Â“nished with 173 on six catches. Tannehill went 17 for 23 for 289 yards and three scores with no turnovers.JARRINGMiamiÂs Kenny Stills took a big hit when he made a 34-yard touchdown reception in stride in the back of the end zone and slammed into the cushioned retaining wall.COSTLY FLAGSSpence was ejected in the second quarter for ripping off guard Kelechi OsemeleÂs helmet. Spence was penalized for unnecessary roughness, which negated a third-down sack by teammate Cameron Wake and led to an Oakland Â“eld goal.INJURY REPORTDolphins: Hayes (right knee) was hurt when he sacked Carr and missed the second half. ...

Â„ Kyle Busch has been one of the last four contenders standing in each of the NASCAR Cup SeriesÂ last three years, and now that heÂs secured his spot in stage two of the playoffs, heÂs approaching next weekÂs race on an unusual and foreign layout at Charlotte Motor Speedway with a devil-may-care attitude. That could be trouble for others who need to perform to advance. The elimination race will be run on a combination of CharlotteÂs 2-mile oval and a road course in the inÂ“eld. The ÂrovalÂŽ is a layout that is narrow in spots and slick in others, one that vexed many teams even when they were just trying to practice on it. ÂI donÂt know if IÂve seen more talk about something than the roval, really,ÂŽ BuschÂs team owner, Joe Gibbs, said. ÂWeÂve been talking about this thing. And I will say this: I think we wrecked four cars, didnÂt we, in practice getting ready for it? I Â“nally said, ÂNobody else goes over there.Â IÂm tired of wrecking stuff.ÂŽ Kevin Harvick, who along with Busch shares the series high with seven victories this year, said heÂs ÂterriÂ“ed of next week, to tell you the truth, just because thereÂs so many unknowns.ÂŽ Despite being third in the points race after Richmond, Harvick still hasnÂt clinched a spot in stage two, but Busch doesnÂt have that problem. He plans to approach it just like any other race, with designs on winning. ÂI think you can drive it differently because you can go force the issue sometimes and try to get a win or get a good Â“nish versus just kind of having to be stressed about it the whole day and on your toes about it the whole day,ÂŽ he said after notching his 50th career victory Saturday night at Richmond. Busch and Brad Keselowski have both clinched spots in the next round with playoff victories, and points leader Martin Truex Jr. also punched his ticket by winning the Â“rst two stages at Richmond, but Busch understands why Harvick and anyone else needing a good showing at Charlotte is concerned about what awaits there. ÂI think everybody is just nervous because itÂs very slick,ÂŽ Busch said of the roval, which has never hosted a Cup-level race. ÂI donÂt know why itÂs so slick. Like when we go to Sonoma, Sonoma doesnÂt feel this bad. When you go to the roval, though, youÂre just on edge the entire time. It feels like ice. YouÂre never comfortable.ÂŽ And mistakes, or being in the wrong place at the wr ong time, can be especially unforgiving. ÂIf you get off course, youÂre into a tire barrier, youÂre into a wall, youÂre hitting someone or something right away. ThereÂs no runoff,ÂŽ Busch said. ÂThatÂs why I think everybody is so (worried) about it is just the tightness of the course. But itÂs the same for all of us.ÂŽ Unless, like BuschÂs teammate, Denny Hamlin, or seven-time champion Jimmie Johnson, you need a strong performance to stay in the title hunt.Victory at Richmond eases playoff tension for Kyle Busch NASCAR: Federated Auto Parts 400
