HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN VOL. 99 | NO. 241 | $1.00 YOUR HOMETOWN NEWSPAPER SINCE 1919 An Edition Of The Sun Monday, October 1, 2018 Highlands Health ................ B1 Local Sports .................. A8-10 Classifieds ...................... B5-7 Comics ................ NEWS WIRE Viewpoints ....................... A6 Weather ......................... A10Good morning To Vernon Hickey Thanks for reading! newssun.com facebook.com/ newssuntwitter.com/ TheNewsSunFind your expanded sports package and weather map in this section today.In todays edition By MARC VALEROSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ The School Districts “ve-year work plan includes no new classrooms while about 10 percent of the students, including nearly 200 at one school, have classes in portables. The plan, which is submitted annually to the Florida Department of Education, shows the number of students at each school, the capacity of each school and district plans to add classrooms either from new classroom wings or new school construction. The districts 2018-19 plan is very similar to its 2017-18 plan from last year. It [the plan] is required if you have any planned student station construction over the next “ve years,Ž said Assistant Superintendent of Business Operations Mike Averyt. Even though we have a classroom building that we want to build, at this point the board hasnt indicated that they want to move on that project so I didnt put in the “ve-year work plan.Ž If it was in the plan it would be funded with the school half-cent sales tax, he added. The report is to determine if you have a “nancially feasible plan to fund your new student stations, Averyt said. At this point we dont have any need for new student stations in the next “ve years,Ž he said. There are about 10 percent in portables. It has been stated before that the districts next classroom construction project would be a classroom wing at Lake Country Elementary School. The number of students in portable classrooms is an indicator that there is a need for new student stations, Averyt said. When the district had more than 200 portables on its campuses, it was a clear indication that more student stations were needed, which in 2006 prompted the construction of new classroom wings, the acquisition of the building that became the Kindergarten Learning Center and the construction of Memorial Elementary School. The districts “ve-year work plan shows that a total of 1,204 (10 percent) will be educated in relocatable units in 2018-19 including: 191 at Lake Placid Elementary, 164 at Lake Country Elementary, 160 at Sun n Lake Elementary and 140 at Park Elementary schools. Four schools have no students in portables: the Kindergarten Learning Center, Memorial Elementary, Hill-Gustat Middle and Avon Park High schools.Classroom portables not going away soon MARC VALERO/STAFF/Assistant Superintendent of Business Operations Mike Averyt. By MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ For business owners or tenants in downtown Sebring seeking to remodel their interiors, the Sebring Community Redevelopment Agency, or CRA, may provide a helping hand. The CRA offers a special grant called the Anchor Tenant Grant Program. This program provides funds to renovate the interior of commercial buildings in the CRA district. This district is mainly in the downtown and historic areas of Sebring, which centers around the Circle. Grant funds will be available for up to $100,000 to attract a high quality anchor tenant to the district,Ž Vazquez said. It is for stores that will make a big splash downtown, like an anchor store in a mall, and encourage other businesses to go there.Ž For this particular grant, CRA calling for grant applications MELISSA MAIN/STAFFThe Habitat for Humanity ReStore recently underwent a huge overhaul to the exterior of their building that was assisted by Sebring CRAs Facade Grant.

Candystore. com collated data from the past 11 years to generate a list of the highest selling candies nationally as well as by individual state. There were some surprises and some no-brainers. Heres a hint, Circus Peanuts were not in the running; neither were Neccos Wafers. This year, the national list of favorite candies given out during Halloween are: 1. Skittles 2. M&Ms 3. Snickers 4. Reeses Peanut Butter Cups 5. Starburst 6. Candy Corn 7. Hot Tamales 8. Hersheys 9. Tootsie Pops 10. Jolly Ranchers Some candies were tops in several states such as Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. Washington and Nebraskas results were a little shocking as salt water taffy was named favorite. Salt water taffy is great but not better than all the other candies available. Floridas not so spooky but oh-so-sweet favorite list reads as follows: 1. Snickers 2. Skittles 3. Reeses Peanut Butter Cups Snickers upset the hold Skittles had on the state last year. According to Candystore.com, Floridians purchased 660,689 pounds of Snickers last year; thats nearly 82,000 pounds more than the second place Skittles, which had 578,790 pounds sold.

But a U.S. District Court judge said to hold on a bit. Freeman, who was the Democratic nominee for Congress from District 17, died unexpectedly on Sunday, Sept. 23. The Democrats planned to choose who would run in her place on Saturday, before U.S. District Judge Elizabeth Kovachevich issued a temporary restraining order Friday to prevent that from happening. At the heart of the matter is a state statute that prevents several possible candidates, such as Pam Keith and Roy David Walker, from running. The two filed suit in Tampa on Friday and will have a noon hearing today before Kovachevich.

www.highlandsnewssun.com October 1, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A3Into the forests they would go making their way through the wilderness where white man had never been before, to settle down and build a home. They were pioneers. The homes were simple, built of logs and thatched with fronds of palmettos. Only a few had glass in the windows. Practically all had wooden shutters hung on hand-made wooden hinges which creaked and groaned when strong winds blew. During the winter months shutters were kept closed but in warm weather they were thrown back and the houses swarmed with ”ies and mosquitoes. The mosquitoes were the bane of the pioneers existence. During the rainy season, when the ”at-woods land stood covered with water for weeks, the mosquitoes bred by the trillion and often made life almost unbearable. In attempts to repel the pests, smudge “res succeeded in driving away almost all the mosquitoes by feeding the “res with cow chips. But the smoldering cow chips didnt smell none too goodŽ when they went to bed. The pioneers slept under cotton-mesh netting to get a little rest. Almost every old-timer tells about having encountered gaunt wild cats or panthers, fully six-feet long and frightfully vicious, but so far as is known, no pioneer was ever killed by one of these animals. However, few of the early settlers were fortunate enough to escape from having some of their cattle killed by the wolves which then roamed through the back country in savage packs. Many years passed before all the wolves were exterminated. The worse task every settler undertook was clearing the ground for crops. Trees had to be cut down and tangled underbrush cleared away. Then followed the endless, back-breaking task of grubbing out the roots. Sometimes it took more than a month to clear one acre. As soon as a small space was ready for cultivation, the “rst garden was planted; sugar cane, sweet potatoes, blackeyed peas, squash and corn. Then came trouble from the animals and birds. The tender vines of the sweet potatoes were most tempting for the deer which overran the region and the pioneer often had to build barricades to prevent their crops from being entirely devoured. Rabbits caused more grief. And the wild turkeys were attracted to the gardens, causing no end of trouble. They came in ”ocks and gobbled up the tiny green sprouts as they burst through the soil. Scarecrows didnt frighten them away. Hundreds had to be shot before the others learned that the luscious peas and corn had not been planted especially for them. Despite the fact that the birds and animals often devoured crops, none of the pioneers ever suffered from lack of food. The woods and swamps were alive with game; deer, squirrels, raccoons, opossum, turkeys and quail. Also blue wing teal ducks, wood and brindle ducks, green necked mallard ducks, and curlews. There never was a time, winter or summer, when the pioneer could not go out into the woods and shoot a mealŽ for his family. When the settlers tired of game, they always had “sh. Most of the pioneers liked mullet, but if they preferred pompano, or trout, or red “sh, or any of a hundred other species, all they had to do was go out in a boat for an hour or so, cast a net, “sh awhile and come back loaded down.

A4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 1, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com the CRA will only consider businesses in one of the following categories: € restaurant, € bakery or doughnut shop, € grocery store or specialty food shop, € clothing boutique, € home improvement, € gym or exercise studio, € full-service spa, € specialty health food store or organic food store, € handmade olive oils, vinegars and soaps and € entertainment or family activities. For businesses that do not fall into one of these categories, or have the ability to pull a large number of people downtown, the CRA offers a different grant, the Downtown Revitalization Grant Program. The Anchor Tenant Grant Program covers the following types of renovations: € room and space recon“guration (including wall relocations), € building expansion, € plumbing upgrades and installation, € ADA upgrades to meet requirements, € lighting and electrical, € mechanical, HVAC, and energy ef“ciency upgrades, € “re suppression system and “re protection requirements, € ventilation system and € structure stabilization (repair and replacement of foundations, footers, load bearing walls, roo“ng systems). The grant application period for the Anchor Tenant Grant Program opens Oct. 1, 2018 and ends Jan. 21, 2019. This will be a competitive grant application, and applicants will be considered for evaluation on Jan. 21, 2019 at the CRA meeting. This grant is open to people who own buildings or tenants who lease space from an owner. Tenant must get the approval of their building owner. People who want to be considered for the grant must complete the entire application. Partial applications will not be considered. If you “ll out any other grant application, it will be much more involved than what we are asking for,Ž Kristie Vazquez, executive director of the CRA, said. As the CRA utilizing tax-payer dollars, we have a “duciary responsibility to make sound investments with those funds,Ž Vazquez said. These are all reimbursable grants,Ž she said. The applicant pays up front. At completion, they will show us the required documentation to complete the reimbursement.Ž After completing an application, business owners will be required to give a presentation before the CRA on Jan. 21, 2019. Owners will need at least three quotes for renovation projects. People who wish to complete the remodeling work themselves can apply for the grant, but they will only be reimbursed for materials, not labor. Applicants are also required to have a business plan, but if a business owner needs assistance completing a business plan, the CRA will connect the individual with Michael Noel from the Florida Small Business Development Center, or SBDC. Individuals can also contact Noel at 863784-7378 or by emailing michaelnoel@usf.edu. Applicants will be ranked on the following criteria: € “nancial strength of the proposed project (up to a maximum of 40 points), € comprehensive business plan for the project and proposed future business use (up to a maximum of 40 points) and € contribution to the aesthetic appeal of the CRA district (up to a maximum of 20 points). The scores of each board member will be averaged to determine a “nal score. The amount of grant funding available to an applicant will be based on the applicants score. Our evaluation process is more structured and now contains a ranking system,Ž Vazquez said. Any of the supplemental information we are now requesting is to substantiate any grant request. With the score system, our board was happy to take the emotional aspect out of it and judge more objectively,Ž she said. We did a lot of research on how other CRAs execute grant programs. Plenty of people had scoring systems, so we looked at that and tweaked it for what worked best for our CRA.Ž If a business owner has a type of business that was not covered under the Anchor Tenant Grant Program, then the owner can apply for the Downtown Revitalization Grant Program. The scoring system for the Downtown Revitalization Grant Program is the same as the Anchor Tenant Grant Program. In addition, the interior building improvements that are covered are the same for both grants. The CRA has budgeted $150,000 for this grant program. Any and all awards will be granted based on the project parameters, “nancial need and catalyst effect to the redevelopment areas as deemed appropriate by the CRA board,  Vazquez said. The grant will be awarded and reviewed on a “rst come, “rst served case-by-case basis by the CRA board throughout the “scal year. Commercial or multi-family residential property located in the CRA area is eligible for participation in this grant. These grants hope to improve new or existing businesses downtown, remedy code violations, provide ADA access and assist existing businesses that are struggling due to blight. One of the ways that the CRA hopes to eliminate blight in the CRA district is through the use of these grants that will bring new businesses downtown and improve existing businesses.GRANTFROM PAGE 1A MELISSA MAIN/STAFFThis commercial space, at 125 W.

The requirements for federal office are federal law,Ž she said. The states cant make requirements for federal office.Ž Keith and Walker both found out from the Florida Democratic Party on Friday they would be prevented from running and Keith filed the suit that afternoon. She called me and we started talking and she was on her way to Tampa to file suit and asked me if I wanted to be a part of it and I said absolutely because this is preventing the people from District 17 from having their voices heard and choosing who they want to pick as their nominee,Ž Walker said. With the election less than 40 days away, Keith said those candidates who just ran for office „ she ran for the Democratic nomination for Congress in District 18 and Walker ran for the Democratic nomination for agriculture commissioner „ were better prepared to to jump right into the election than somebody who has been sitting on the sidelines. We have websites, logos, fundraising mechanisms in place,Ž she said. We can hit the ground running.Ž Walker agreed and said he would be ready to go if needed. Were definitely jumping through hoops and thats why we as Democrats are working together,Ž he said. This will happen real fast.

Walker and Keith may not be the only candidates interested „ as well as affected by the outcome of todays ruling „ Bill Pollard, who was defeated by Freeman for the District 17 nomination „ is one possibility, as is Todd Truax, who ran for the Democratic nomination in District 19, and a favorable ruling for Keith and Walker will allow the Florida Democratic Party to have their choice of a number of qualified candidates. Keith said while the ruling will affect the Democratic Party this time, its one that both parties have a vested interest in, as regardless of which party a person belongs, they should want to see the Democrats and Republicans send forth their best candidates for office, and this state statute can prevent it from happening. Its the Democrats this time, it could be the Republicans next time,Ž she said. Democratic Party officials are expected to hold a conference call today after Judge Kovachevich renders a decision and Keith and Walker optimistic the judge would rule in their favor. Pam and I are doing this for the voters from both sides because I believe all voters have the right to have their voices heard at the polls,Ž Walker said. Its a constitutional right and this statute is preventing that.ŽFREEMANFROM PAGE 1A adno=3616332-1 863-385-SKIN (7546)HeartlandSkinCenter.comJennifer A.

www.highlandsnewssun.com October 1, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A5By KIM LEATHERMAN STAFF WRITERAVON PARK … Gar“eld Douglas Christie, 24, of Avon Park was arrested on Saturday, Sept. 22 by Highlands County Sheriffs Deputies. He is being charged with one felony count of burglary of an unoccupied vehicle and one felony count of larceny grand theft of $300 or more but less than $5,000. The deputy estimated Christie stole $1,955 worth of items from Ronda CallahanVanhorns car. According to the arrest report, CallahanVanhornsaid she went to her car, a white Jaguar, about 10 p.m. She was surprised to see Christie sitting in her car when she opened the drivers side door. Callahan-Vanhorn ordered Christie to get out of her car and told him he did not have permission or the right to be in her car. Callahan-Vanhorn was able to give deputies a good description of the man because she was close enough to get a good look at him and the dome light in the car lit up the interior. The victim described the suspect as a black male in his early 20s, a short afro. She also said he was wearing all black clothing. When Christie walked away, the victim said he was carrying a black and and blue bag as well as a red one. The suspect ”ed the scene before deputies could arrive. The next day, CallahanVanhorn said she was driving northbound on U.S. 27 when she saw Christie walking in front of Raceway gas and convenience store. He was carrying a black and blue bag. She called Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce and two of“cers arrived at the scene. They arrested Christie. Callahan-Vanhorn was called and brought to the scene. She was able to make a positive identi“cation and said that the suspect was the one who stole from her. She agreed to make a formal statement and Christie went to the jail. The items that were stolen and the estimated value are: a Hewlet Packard laptop worth $1,600, a DJ microphone at $70 and a blue and black laptop bag worth $25; and a couple of speaker cords and two auxiliary cords worth $200.Eyewitness identification leads to arrest CHRISTIE By MARC VALEROSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ In a one day survey recently involving 80 school bus drivers, Highlands County reported seven incidents of vehicles illegally passing a school bus. The Florida Department of Education illegal passing survey is done on one day each school year with most districts participating. A total of 9,009 bus drivers participated in the survey for 2018, reporting a total of 10,937 vehicles passing illegally and of that total, 5,379 occurred in the morning, 229 midday and 5,329 in the afternoon. In Highlands County, six of the seven incidents occurred in the morning hours: three were passing from the front and four passing from the rear of the bus. School District Transportation Director David Solomon said when there is an incident of illegal passing the driver noti“es the districts transportation supervisor who noti“es the Sheriffs Of“ce, which will patrol the area. We have had people who have passed on the [right] side and that is really dangerous there, but we dont get too many of those,Ž he said. Some people are very impatient and they start out late to wherever they are going and then they get into a rush. We try not to have routes where buses are constantly stopping and starting because that is aggravating to drivers behind us. So we try to take that into consideration and spread our stops out.Ž Florida law states that students can walk up to 1 1/2 miles to a bus stop, but the district does not have any students walking anywhere near that distance to a bus stop, Solomon said. Sometimes you wonder why drivers are rushing and sometimes they are probably late to work, he said. Thankfully there hasnt been an accident related to illegal passing. Statewide on the survey day there were 447 incidents of vehicles passing a school bus on the right side.Survey tallies illegal school bus passing MARC VALERO/STAFFDuring a recent one day survey, Highlands County District school bus drivers noted seven incidents of vehicles illegally passing a school bus.

And fortunately, the consequences of venturing out in the summer without bug spray are usually little more than itchy bumps. But thats not the case elsewhere around the world, where mosquitoes are responsible for hundreds of millions of cases of illness and millions of deaths each year. Theyre easily the worlds deadliest animal, even more so than humans. Malaria is a particularly devastating mosquito-borne illness. About half of the worlds population lives in areas at risk of malaria, which sickens millions and kills hundreds of thousands of people each year, most of them in Africa. One group of species „ Anopheles gambiae „ out of the roughly 3,500 types of mosquitoes on earth is responsible for most of that epidemic. And researchers recently announced that they successfully tested a gene modi“cation technique that could cause entire populations of Anopheles gambiae mosquitoes to self-destruct. Theres just one small catch. We dont really have any idea what would happen without mosquitoes. Theyre food for other animals, they help pollinate plants, they compete with other nasty animals. Getting rid of them could be a disaster, or it might not make much of a difference at all. According to a report published Monday, scientists have “gured out how to genetically engineer mosquitoes that pass along sterility when they mate. An entire population can be wiped out in a few generations, which for mosquitoes would take just a few months. Humans have experimented with lower-tech methods of mosquito eradication for decades. In fact, the United States struggled with malaria until the 1950s, when aggressive pesticide spraying and other anti-mosquito efforts effectively eradicated the disease here. Lots of counties still routinely spray for mosquitoes, although not without some controversy. And yet, the biting pests remain very much with us. In remote places with minimal infrastructure and year-round mosquito breeding seasons, the challenge is even tougher. So scientists have been trying to come up with a more effective solution than pesticides. What little research has been conducted on the importance of the Anopheles gambiae mosquito suggests that eradicating it might not have much of an impact. They certainly wouldnt be missed by humans. But far more study will be required before releasing genetically engineered, self-destructing insects into the wild. Of course, research on genetically altered mosquitoes raises broader ethical and ecological questions as well. Harmful arti“cial genetic traits that can rapidly spread through a population could be used as a powerful biological weapon, for example. Billions of species have come and gone in the long history of our planet. More than a few of them owe their demise to humans. Life on earth is still soldiering on, at least for now. Any chance to wipe out malaria and other massively destructive diseases merits investigation. But if were going to intentionally eradicate a species, wed better make sure we fully understand the consequences. An editorial from the Post and Courier in Charleston, South Carolina.Eliminating the pestsAccess issues are everywhereAs a person with a disability, I can directly relate to the articles that [Highlands NewsSun Staff Writer] Kim Leatherman has written about ADA accessibility issues. I appreciate the effort that Mr. [Randy] Reinhardt has put into addressing them in Lake Placid. He shouldnt need to “le a lawsuit to get access to local establishments, neither should anyone else. Unfortunately, some people/businesses/corporations/municipalities, etc will only respond to legal action. That said, there are numerous businesses throughout the county that are not ADA compliant. Most of the issues stem from the many older buildings in our county, yet could be resolved by the business owners investing an extremely minimal amount of money in a portable ramp, wireless doorbell and printing a sign with information regarding how to get access to their establishment. The more complex issues can typically also be solved with minimally invasive and relatively little cost. When I personally see an access issue, I try to talk to the business owner or management to let them know and offer inexpensive solutions. The responses I get fall into a few categories: 1) appreciative of the info; 2) not my problem; or 3) were grandfathered inŽ. Even those who are receptive to my approach, rarely follow through on “xing their access issues. It can be exhausting trying to advocate for access. Most people with disabilities dont have the knowledge or the energy to “ght for access. I thank Mr. Reinhardt for his efforts to make places accessible for all.Michelle L. Hull Avon ParkSenators need to do their jobEnough of the bul.s..t, grandstanding, politics and plain stupidity taking over our sensible propose for this wonderful nation. Do your job!

There are many similar tools out there but these two have served me well. Be a hostage no more to invasive callers or email rip-offs.Warren Pender SebringYOUR VIEW As I get older myself, I realize more and more just how precious life is. I have lost an aunt and an uncle in the past few months, as well as a staff member and a columnist, two people that I spoke to or saw more than I did my aunt and uncle. While I have a lot of respect for and value the time I spent working with Jay Meisel and Hank Kowalski, its a shame that I can admit they had more of my time than my family members. Granted, the family that I speak of lives in Illinois, but I should have made more of an effort to go back on a regular basis, to write them a quick note or pick up the phone and call them. Those are my regrets. They are regrets Ill carry with me forever. While I cant go back and make it up to my aunt and uncle, I can make a better effort to see other family and friends on a more regular basis. I am one of those people that we all read about. I have earned plenty of vacation time through the years, yet at the end of every year I end up losing more than half of it. Each year I vow that it will be the year that I dont lose any of my vacation time, but the year seems to sweep by so quickly that the next thing I know, its Dec. 31 and a new year begins. According to research conducted by Project: Time Off, private sector organizations in the United States have accrued a collective $224 billion in unused paid time off from 2014 to 2015. From 2000 to 2013, the average employee has steadily reduced the amount of vacation time taken, from 20.9 days per year to just 16. In all fairness, my bosses in the past few years have reminded me that taking time is not only a healthy thing for me, but it is also bene“cial for them. If I take the time off I can rest and regroup, returning with a fresh mind and be re-energized for the tasks that lie ahead of me. Ive listened to some of the fun stories that co-workers have told about their cruises to the Caribbean, or a tour of Canada. Its not like I have small children in my house anymore, so theres really nothing holding me back. Just me, thats it. With only three months left this year, Im going to try really hard to get more of my time in. It may not be a trip back home to Illinois, and most likely wont be a tour or cruise, but a trip to the mountains, or a trip to see family who lives closer may be something I can work on. Maybe it will just be a road trip. The last one I took was quite relaxing. Thanks to the many trips I made with my parents driving between Illinois and Florida when I was a teenager, driving long distances is not something that worries me. I actually look forward to the next trip, with or without a passenger. I have earned the time, so I just need to make myself take it. Maybe this will be my “rst year in decades!

Burnikel10/1/18Saturday’s Puzzle Solved10/1/18By KIM LEATHERMAN STAFF WRITERLAKE PLACID „ Theyre back. Its lovebug season again; yes, it seems like it just passed. Believe it or not, lovebugs have two seasons in which to pursue their amorous affairs. Lovebugs appear when weather is warming up, in April or May, and in August or September. University of Florida Entomology Professor Norman Leppla said the black bugs do not threaten humans „ just cars. They may be a nuisance, but at least they dont bite or sting, and they dont live very long. Leppla said the adults only live about two weeks. Theres not much to do but wait them out,Ž Leppla said. The acid created in their bodies as they are drying on the hood of cars can damage the clear coating of the paint job. The good professor gave some advice: They are not too bad if you get them off quickly after driving,Ž he said. Get the hose out and rinse the car off when you get home, at least within 24 hours. I keep a bottle of water and paper towels in the garage.Ž There are many types of home remedies to get the carcasses off the car and there are commercial products that are purported to work. Leppla says that he has a home remedy he swears works. Take some dryer sheets and wet them,Ž he said. Wipe the car down good with them. It kind of turns the nastiness into “ngerprinting. Then rinse the car well with water. We wax our cars before every lovebug season; they dont seem to stick as much.Ž Leppla recommends using a mesh screen, available at auto parts stores to guard against clogging radiators. It is not your imagination if you thought the pesky bugs are worse on the highways. According to Leppla, the reason the lovebugs do the suicidal samba is because they are attracted to something in the car exhaust, such as hydrocarbons. Also, the females lay their eggs along roads, such as U.S. 27, because the larvae eat decaying vegetation and eat the nectar that the ”owering weeds grow. Lovebugs are not native to North America and werent documented in Florida until about 1940. They traveled here from South or Central America, where they are native. No one is sure why they jumped the southern continent. There is an urban legend that has been debunked. The myth states that the mad scientists at UF were breeding the bug to kill mosquitoes or some other reason. When an accident in the lab „ similar to a Jurassic ParkŽ incident „ happened and all the red and black lovebugs escaped. UF Professor of Entomology Phillip Koehler once said publicly that he had no idea where the rumor-turned-legend started and it could not possibly be true. He reasoned the mad scientists at UF would have created the bug to be blue and orange instead of black and red.Love(bugs) is in the air UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA PHOTOLovebugs swarm a building.

By DOUG FERGUSONASSOCIATED PRESSSAINT-QUENTINEN-YVELINES, France „ Payback belongs to Europe, and so does the Ryder Cup. Two years after the Americans thought they had their Ryder Cup problems “gured out, Europe reminded them Sunday why it practically has owned this shiny gold trophy for the last quarter-century. British Open champion Francesco Molinari was just as good on his own as he was with Tommy Fleetwood. The best year of the Italians gol“ng life got even better at Le Golf National when he became the “rst European „ and only second player since the current format began in 1979 „ to win all “ve of his matches. The last one set off a wild, champagne-soaked celebration. Europe already was assured the 14 points it needed because they were guaranteed halves in two matches. Molinari made it of“cial. He was 2 up and safely on the green at the par-3 16th green when Phil Mickelson hit into the water, removed his cap and conceded the match. The “nish was most appropriate. The celebration and singing had already begun. The Europeans were treated like rock stars before more than 50,000 fans. All that remained was Alex Noren in the anchor match. He was 1 up on the 18th hole when DeChambeau stuffed his approach to 2 feet for a conceded birdie. Noren hit the “nal shot in this Ryder Cup, a 40-foot birdie putt to win the match, and the stoic Swede hurled his cap.Europe beats US to win Ryder CupA dominant performance across the pond ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTO /BY LAURENT CIPRIANIEurope team captain Thomas Bjorn, center, holds the trophy aloft as he celebrates with his team after Europe won the Ryder Cup on the “nal day of the 42nd Ryder Cup at Le Golf National in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, outside Paris, France on Sunday. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSSTATE COLLEGE, Pa. „ The largest crowd in Beaver Stadium history, a sparkling whiteout, was rocking. Penn State and its dynamic and gritty quarterback Trace McSorley had Ohio State reeling midway through the fourth quarter. And then just like that, everything changed, and for the second year in a row the Buckeyes swiped victory away from the Nittany Lions in another wild game between the Big Ten powerhouses. Dwayne Haskins threw two touchdown passes in the “nal seven minutes as No. 4 Ohio State wiped out a 12-point de“cit to beat No. 9 Penn State 27-26 Saturday night. That sideline was not giving up,Ž Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said. There was a time, now, you looked up and saw those white pom-poms and that whole deal and thought that was over.Ž McSorley set a school record with 461 yards of total offense, including a career-high 175 rushing and threw two touchdown passes, and the Nittany Lions (4-1, 1-1) went up 26-14 with 8 minutes left in the fourth quarter on a 1-yard TD plunge by Miles Sanders. The record-breaking crowd of 110,889 was singing along to Sweet CarolineŽ and Livin on a Prayer.Ž It looked like the Nittany Lions would get another home victory against the Buckeyes (5-0, 2-0) like they did in 2016. Instead, for the second straight season, Ohio State made a fourth-quarter rally from a double-digit de“cit. As far as Penn State coach James Franklin has taken the Nittany Lions in four-plus seasons, he said they cant quite consider themselves an elite program until they start closing out games like this. And he promised to change it. Its not going to happen again,Ž Franklin said. Im not a negative guy. But I am going to make sure that as our program, that we do everything right and we grow every single day and we challenge ourselves every single day and we get uncomfortable, we get comfortable being uncomfortable and break out to that next phase.Ž The game ”ipped quickly. Haskins connected with Binjimen Victor, who weaved and slipped through tacklers for a 47-yard touchdown catch and run that cut it to 26-21 with 6:42 left. Meyer said Victor, a junior who Ohio State has been waiting to blossom, gave us hope.Ž Ohio State rally stuns Penn State By RUTH ANNE LAWSONSTAFF WRITERSEBRING … The Sebring Blue Streaks swiftly defeated the Desoto Bulldogs in three sets on Thursday night. It was retro night for the Blue Streaks as they sported uniforms from years past. In the Class 6A-District 10 match, Sebring topped DeSoto by scores of 25-14, 25-21 and 25-12. The Blue Streaks record is now an impressive 13-2 for the season and 4-0 in district play. We really wanted to work on running different offenses,Ž said Sebring Coach Venessa Sinness. We know we are small on the front row so we have to be quick and fast. Thats what we did a lot of tonight. It worked really well. We did kind of break down mentally on our serve receive and that is something we cant do. We have to be fundamentally sound in that but we got to do a lot of stuff with hitting which is what we need to work on. I was very happy with that. Ashley Bible is our freshman, she knows how to stay in system, connects with the ball well, sees the block, and we are still working on the tip. She is in that point now where she is doing really good. We are going to need her and Courtney Webb in the stretch of things as the season goes on.Ž Sebring came out hot with libero Emily Bible serving a three-point run that included two aces to put the Blue Streaks up 8-2.

After school sessions are oered.Penn State could not put the Buckeyes away with a closing drive, but the Nittany Lions buried Haskins and Ohio State at their own 4 with 4:35 left on the clock. It was tough, but we wanted it to be tough,Ž Haskins said. A screen to J.K. Dobbins got 35 and took Ohio State out of the hole. Mixing runs and passes, the Buckeyes worked their way into Penn State territory. Haskins hit K.J. Hill with a quick pass to the outside and the receiver picked up a couple of blocks, broke a tackle and went in for a 24-yard score that made it 27-26 with 2:03 left. One of the great drives in Ohio State history,Ž Meyer called it. McSorley and Penn State could not come up with a response. On fourth-and-5 from the Ohio State 43, McSorley handed off to Sanders on a read option and the back was smothered by Chase Young. We obviously didnt make the right call in that situation, and thats on me, nobody else,Ž Franklin said. Meyer said Ohio State expected Penn State to give McSorley an option to run. It was very emotional,Ž McSorley said of the Penn State locker room after the game. It was just one of those things where you lose by one point and everyones mind, immediately, its just, what could I have done better?Ž THE TAKEAWAY Ohio State: The Buckeyes now have two come-from-behind victories away from Columbus against quality competition, adding this one to the TCU win two weeks ago. Yet, still, there seems to be much work to do. Penalties and a propensity to give up long gains continue to dog Ohio State.OHIOFROM PAGE 8A ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTO /BY CHRIS KNIGHTOhio States K.J. Hill (14) runs in for the winning touchdown against Penn State on Saturday night. The Buckeyes beat the Nittany Lions by a score of 27-26.Europe won, 17-10, the most lopsided victory since consecutive 189 victories by Europe more than a decade ago when the Americans looked utterly lost. They formed a Ryder Cup Task Force, spearheaded by Mickelson, after the 2014 loss. The idea was to build continuity and momentum, and it seemed to work when they won at Hazeltine in 2016. Now, maybe its back to the drawing board. Mickelson was desperate to make this team because the 48-year-old saw it as his last chance to win a Ryder Cup on European soil. He wound up losing both his matches. He started the week by setting a record with his 12th Ryder Cup appearance. He ended it by setting a more dubious Ryder Cup record with 22 losses. He wasnt alone. Tiger Woods went 0-4, the “rst time in his eight Ryder Cups that he failed to contribute a single point. But this was more about the Europeans as a team, and they were tougher than ever on a course they know well. This team has been incredible from the start,Ž Molinari said. We were determined to do the job. Nothing was going to stop us. And you saw it on the course.Ž Trailing 10-6 going into the “nal day of singles, the Americans needed to put red points on the board early to build momentum. It never happened. Justin Thomas won the leadoff match over Rory McIlroy, but not until the 18th hole. Webb Simpson and Tony Finau, the lone bright spot among the wild-card picks for U.S. captain Jim Furyk, won easily. Behind them, Woods was hanging tough against Jon Rahm and Dustin Johnson started to pull ahead of Ian Poulter. Theres always a moment where it looks like a spark of light,Ž Furyk said. When it was there for us, Europe played really well.ŽEUROPEFROM PAGE 8A ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTO /BY ALASTAIR GRANTEuropes Ian Poulter celebrates after winning the 14th hole during a singles match on the “nal day of the 42nd Ryder Cup at Le Golf National in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines on Sunday.

Highlands Health CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDESECTION BMonday, October 1, 2018 Im sure youve heard of those delicious orange-colored fruits called papayas. I absolutely adore them more than mangoes and peaches which have the same mushy texture and drip all over your chin. Papayas themselves have all kinds of proven health bene“ts. For one, they are extremely “ber-rich. Also, the antioxidant content is extraordinarily high and combined with Vitamin C, these are fantastic to help with the maintenance of healthy cholesterol levels and atherosclerosis (the build-up of plaque in the arteries). But today, Id like to focus on a special, and highly bene“cial compound found in the leaves and fruit of the papaya called papain. Papain is an enzyme which means it helps drive reactions in your body. For example, if you eat a hamburger, one enzyme in your body, that you produce, called proteaseŽ helps break down the meat and turn it into smaller protein molecules called amino acids. Enzymes that break down proteins are termed proteolyticŽ enzymes. In the case of papain, its not made by you. Its made by a fruit. When you eat it, it still drives (catalyzes) metabolic reactions in your body that help you break down food, especially proteins. So papain is also a proteolytic enzyme. Papain, from the papaya, bromelain is from pineapple, and pepsin, an enzyme naturally occurring in the gut, are all similar proteolytic enzymes, which again, break down proteins. So these all help you eat proteins. All three of these stimulate healthy digestion, especially the break down of fats and proteins into smaller molecules that your body can absorb. This reduces putrefaction of foods stuck in your colon, and the resulting smelly gas. In doing so, this could lead to a reduction in in”ammation in your gut. This proteolytic action could also serve as a very mild diuretic and gut sootherŽ of sorts by reducing the risk of heartburn, bloating, and indigestion. In Ayurvedic medicine, papain is seen as a diuretic and anti-bloating tonic which suppresses in”ammation. In fact, so many cultures revere the beautiful papaya tree which is known as The Tree of Good Health.Ž Impressive bene“ts of papaya and papain 1. Heal your skin and wounds Like the aloe plant, throughout history, the skins and leaves of papayas can be applied to minor burns and wounds to speed up the healing process. We use a lot of triple antibiotic ointment in our country, however, where drugs are not promoted, you see natural remedies. As an example, in Latin America, Hawaii, and Tahiti, papain leaves are used commonly for burns. Its not folk medicine, its true. Research has clearly proven that papain stimulates the healing process, and helps sooth burns and injuries to the skin, and all without harming the healthy skin around it. In studies, papain has proven to stimulate wound healing through several fascinating mechanisms.2 First, papain stimulates the formation of cytokines that promote cellular reproduction and healing. Second, papain creates an environment that discourages the formation of harmful microorganisms.3 In this way, papain creates an environment which accelerates wound healing and skin repair in every way. Papain is at the forefront of all kinds of skin research right now, not only for skin rejuvenation and beauty, but also to healing severe burns. It is exciting to see all this come to fruition.6 benefits of papayaDEAR PHARMACISTSuzy Cohen PAPAYA | 7B SPECIAL TO THE HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNThe American Cancer Society will release the second edition of What to Eat During Cancer Treatment on today.

The study, published online in Alzheimers & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimers Association, is the “rst to forecast Alzheimers disease by race and ethnicity. CDC researchers predict that Hispanic Americans will have the largest projected increase due to population growth over the projection period, although because of the relative size of the population, non-Hispanic whites will still have the largest total number of Alzheimers cases. The burden of Alzheimers disease and related dementias in 2014 was 5 million people, which is 1.6 percent of the U.S. population in 2014 „ 319 million people. This burden is projected to grow to 13.9 million, nearly 3.3 percent of the population in 2060 Alzheimers disease, related dementias to double by 2060CDC GRAPHIC SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNIn what Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers call an unusually comprehensive analysis of nationwide data, they conclude that the rate of lawnmower injuries persists at close to 6,400 a year, most of them requiring surgery and hospitalization, and costing an average of $37,000 per patient. A report of the study, tracking eight years of data between 2006 and 2013, was published in the Sept. issue of Public Health Reports. Despite consumer education programs and warning labels, lawnmower injuries in the United States remain a serious public health concern,Ž says Deborah Schwengel, M.D., assistant professor of anesthesiology and critical care medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the studys senior author. She is also associated with Johns Hopkins Childrens Center. Overall the new analysis showed that the most frequent injuries were to men (43,567 of 51,151, or 85.2 percent), and that children up to age 4 were six times more likely to have a foot/toe or lower extremity injury and 1.7 times more likely to have an amputation than those age 15 and above. Conversely, older teens and adults age 15 and above were 8.3 times more likely to have an injury to the hand or upper extremity. This, the researchers say, suggests that young children are more likely to get injured by running into the yard while a family member operates the lawnmower or by getting their foot trapped in the machine while sitting in the operating members lap, and that the majority of teens and adults sustain injuries from sticking their hands into the mower to clear debris. The data were not able to inform the researchers about the type of mower that caused an individual injury; what mower designs were most likely associated with injuries; or whether those injured were bystanders or doing the mowing. Previous studies, says Schwengel, have generally collected data only on certain types of injuries associated with consumer Lawnmower injuries remain a serious matter AP PHOTOColton Callaghan, 2, plays on Labor Day with his toy lawnmower.DISEASE | 4B INJURIES | 10B

B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 1, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com By NANCY DALE YOGA FOR LIFEOne of the first signs of anxiety/stress is shortness of breath when our chest hardly expands to its greatest capacity. Thus, to relax, open the chest and lengthen the inhales/ exhales. Expanding the chest is based on deep inhales and long exhales that inflate the front and back thoracic cavity. The healing breath, as we say in Yoga is purposeful, as the deeper and longer we inhale we send fresh oxygenated blood throughout the body. Deep breathing and opening the chest helps to relax tension and relieve anxiety in the mind and body. There are several Yoga postures that open the chest to expand the length of the inhales and exhales. Stand in TadasanaŽ which lengthens the spine and is a starting point for breathing deeper. With eyes closed, stand or sit tall, take a deep long inhale through the nose and count how long it takes. Visualize sending oxygen through the top of the head and hold the breath for a count of 3. Then, exhale and count how long it takes. Work on lengthening the inhales and the exhales to the same count. Take 10 deep breaths very slowly in Tadasana. This is a great way to take a break at work to refresh and regenerate. One Yoga pose that opens the chest is Pigeon Pose.Ž When in this posture, the chest is thrust forward and the neck curved back. It also lengthens the spine when the head is arched backwards. Hold the pose for a count of 10 and repeat with each leg folded underneath the core, three times. Chair PoseŽ also opens the chest when you start from Tadasana. Bend the knees with arms extended forward, touch the ears as you inhale pulling the arms forward while pulling the buttocks back. Keep deeply breathing and hold the pose for a count of 10. Repeat the pose five times. The breathŽ is the most important part of Yoga incorporated into each pose. After a Yoga practice, the mind, body and emotions will be calmed and clear. This is why in Yoga we call it the cleansingŽ breath. At night before retiring, stand up against a wall, arms extended upwards and forward bend from the waist as you inhale and exhale deeply. Just hang with the buttocks resting against the wall for as long as comfortable. Expand the chest with long inhales and exhales as you slowly rise. Use the breath as a way to cleanse the mind/body of negativity. It works!Yoga for life: expanding the chest COURTESY PHOTOYoga students at YMCA doing Pigeon Pose,Ž expanding the chest.

Red“eld, M.D. Early diagnosis is key to helping people and their families cope with loss of memory, navigate the health care system, and plan for their care in the future.Ž Alzheimers disease is the “fth most common cause of death for Americans ages 65 years and older. It is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and, eventually, a persons ability to perform even the simplest tasks, such as bathing, feeding, and dressing. CDC researchers estimated the number of people with Alzheimers by age, sex, race and ethnicity in 2014 and 2060 based on population projections from the U.S. Census Bureau and percentages of Medicare Fee-for-Service bene“ciaries ages 65 years and older with Alzheimers disease and related dementias from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Key “ndings Among people ages 65 and older, African Americans have the highest prevalence of Alzheimers disease and related dementias (13.8 percent), followed by Hispanics (12.2 percent), and non-Hispanic whites (10.3 percent), American Indian and Alaska Natives (9.1 percent), and Asian and Paci“c Islanders (8.4 percent). By 2060, the researchers estimate there will be 3.2 million Hispanics and 2.2 million African Americans with Alzheimers disease and related dementias. The increases are a result of fewer people dying from other chronic diseases and surviving into older adulthood when the risk for Alzheimers disease and related dementias increases. Caregivers need support The report also addresses the need to provide support to caregivers of persons living with Alzheimers and related dementias because an early diagnosis can help caregivers plan for the life-changing experience of caring for a friend or family member with these conditions, which can also impact the caregivers health and well-being. It is important for people who think their daily lives are impacted by memory loss to discuss these concerns with a health care provider. An early assessment and diagnosis is key to planning for their health care needs, including long-term services and supports, as the disease progresses,Ž said Kevin Matthews, Ph.D., health geographer and lead author of the study with the CDCs Division of Population Health within the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. CDC works to understand and improve the lives of people with Alzheimers and related dementias, and their families, by: Collecting, analyzing, and disseminating data on cognitive decline and caregiving to guide public health action. Promoting awareness of Alzheimers disease and other dementias, including the importance of early assessment and diagnosis. Collaborating with partners to develop, promote, and disseminate effective strategies to train health care workers about early signs of dementia despite cultural differences.

www.highlandsnewssun.com October 1, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B72. Address sinus and breathing problems In studies, we have learned that papain helps to digest„or thin mucus, speci“cally by diluting sinus mucin, a glycoprotein in mucus. In this way, papain could be great for helping people with sinus issues of all kinds.4 Besides being wonderful at helping to thin sinus mucus, though, today were learning about the ability of papain to penetrate the mucosal membrane in the gut for various medicinal bene“ts, such as repairing damaged endothelial cells in the gut lining.5 3. Reduce bloating and diarrhea As I mentioned earlier, both papain and bromelain, from pineapples, are enzymes which have been found to ease in”ammation and improve digestion, as well as easing bloating and constipation. In a recent 2013 STUDY, a papain preparation signi“cantly improved all these aspects of digestion in people with GI dysfunction. In another recent STUDY, a male patient with gluten intolerance added 18,000 mg. of papain once a day, every day, for one month (while eating a gluten-free diet) and experienced fewer loose stools as well as improved stools, less diarrhea, and a great decrease in bloat. 4. Fight colds and ”u faster Papain improves the immune system chie”y by modulating in”ammation. In”ammatory conditions, from IBS to Crohns to virtually any autoimmune disorder all signal the immune system to go to work, de”ecting much needed soldiers (immune cells, cytokines, and T cells) away from “ghting off disease and toward “ghting against their own system. Both papain and PAPAYA SEEDS have demonstrated remarkable abilities to promote wound healing, a good sign of any compounds ability to activate the immune system. Also, papaya seed extracts were shown in this STUDY to be able to help “ght diseases like malaria and dengue fever. Researchers believe that it is the phytochemicals in papaya such as phenolics and carotenoids that are so bene“cial in modulating immune system agents such as cytokines, transcription factors, and antioxidant enzymes. 5. Improve antioxidant system Papain contains compounds that make it a potent antioxidant, helping to protect the body from cellular damage caused by free radicals. They have a good supply of natural folate which supports your methylation processes, as well as plenty of vitamin C. Being orange, you might expect some beta carotene as well, and youd be correct! Papain, in fact, is a very strong antioxidant, on par with other antioxidants you think of such as Vitamin C and E. 6. Fight cancer as hard as you can We are learning some fascinating things about using enzymes like papain to “ght cancer, speci“cally by attacking the cancer cell. The speci“c action papain has on cancer cells is by dissolving the protein coating around the cancer cell. Brie”y, the thick protein coating on these cancer cells is called “brin.Ž It not only prevents chemotherapy from doing a complete job of eradicating the cancer, this coating also keeps the immune system from identifying and destroying these cancer cells. Also, it so impedes chemotherapy from acting on cancer cells that industrial strengthŽ doses must then be used which destroy the human system in an effort to destroy the cancer cell. Pregnant women should not consume papaya seeds Theres a lot of controversy about papaya seeds or extracts being a male contraceptive. This is based upon two studies done on lab rats, and then on monkeys. The papaya extract was injected, at a very high dose. I dont think it applies to human males personally, but that said, if youre concerned about male fertility, then just avoid them. How to get papayas into your life If you are not allergic, papayas are a fantastic fruit to just peel and eat. Again, be careful with the skin. Just like mangoes, there can be allergies to it. Again, as I stated earlier, if you are allergic to mangoes, stay away from papaya as well as cashews. Also if you have a latex rubber allergy, there is a moderate cross sensitivity with papayas, so avoid them.

www.highlandsnewssun.com October 1, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B9By SCOTT GOTTLIEBFDA COMMISSIONERThis week marks the of“cial start of ”u seasonŽ for 2018-2019. The FDA, along with its partners across the Department of Health and Human Services, has been working throughout the year to prepare the development of a safe, effective ”u vaccine for the season. I got my ”u shot this week at an event in Washington, along with the U.S. Surgeon General Jerome M. Adams. With the severity of last years ”u season, I know that there are questions about the effectiveness and bene“ts of the ”u vaccine. I want to take this opportunity to update you on what weve learned from last season, the steps were taking to improve our readiness and the effectiveness of this coming years ”u vaccine, and the continued importance of getting vaccinated. While the effectiveness of the vaccine may vary year to year, I want to assure you that evidence remains strong to support the bene“ts of the annual ”u vaccine for most people. Though ”u season is generally thought of as starting in September, we at the FDA work year-round to prepare for each ”u season. And were committed to working together with the scienti“c and medical communities to better protect the public against the ”u and apply lessons learned to improve vaccine effectiveness each year. The FDA has a key role in selecting the strains to be included in seasonal ”u vaccines. Because theres often more than one type of in”uenza virus circulating each season, in”uenza vaccines are designed to target three or four of the in”uenza viruses that are most likely to circulate during the season: two in”uenza A types (H1N1 and H3N2) and one (trivalent formulation) or two (quadrivalent formulation) types of in”uenza B. One of the challenges in “ghting ”u is that the viruses can change their genetic make-up rapidly „ not only between ”u seasons, but also during the course of a single season. As a result, the seasonal in”uenza vaccine needs to be evaluated annually to see whether its composition needs to be adjusted. This evaluation is based on the in”uenza viruses, or strains, that are expected to be in circulation during the upcoming in”uenza season. The need to evaluate and potentially change the vaccine strains is unique to the in”uenza vaccine, as the composition of antigens included in other preventive vaccines doesnt change. To select the in”uenza virus strains for inclusion in each seasons ”u vaccine, the FDA, World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other partners review data collected on the circulating strains of in”uenza from around the world to identify those strains that are most likely to cause the most illness during the U.S. ”u season. Since it generally takes several months for in”uenza vaccines to be produced, ”u strains for the next season need to be selected months in advance to ensure were prepared with enough supply when ”u season hits. Our advisory committee met in March, 2018 to select the strains for this upcoming season. Last years ”u vaccine was less protective than it had been in many previous years. In part, this was because the vaccine was not as effective against one of the predominant circulating strains of in”uenza. That circulating strain of in”uenza was contained in the vaccine. In other words, we guessed right about the common strains that dominated last years ”u season. The problem was that the seedŽ in”uenza strain that was used to produce the vaccines had changed in some subtle but meaningful ways. Its now believed that part of the reason that the vaccine was not as protective is that the ”u strain used to manufacture the vaccine mutated very subtly during the development process. The result of these small, but very targeted changes, was that the protective immune antibodiesŽ that the ”u vaccine elicited were slightly different than what people needed to mount the most effective immune response to the virus. This isnt the “rst time that the vaccine strains have deviated in some important ways from the in”uenza strain that ends up circulating during the ”u season. But weve learned a lot of lessons from these highly unfortunate incidents. And weve improved our scienti“c methods to reduce the odds that it happens again. We have some con“dence, based on the pattern of in”uenza circulating now in the Southern hemisphere, that the ”u strains chosen for this years U.S. seasonal ”u vaccine should offer Americans good protection. A seasonal ”u vaccine is one of the most effective and safest ways to protect yourself, your family and your community from the ”u and serious ”u-related complications, which can result in hospitalizations. Flu vaccines work by preparing the bodys immune system when exposed to multiple strains of in”uenza viruses circulating during the in”uenza season. When a person gets vaccinated, their bodys immune system is able to recognize and respond to a future exposure of the disease-causing agent to prevent that disease.FDA head urges flu vaccinations GOTTLIEB adno=3616744-1 The Palms of Sebring Fall Festival 863-385-0161 ext. 0725 S.

B10 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 1, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com products without addressing issues of cost or national scope. To better understand the extent of the problem, Schwengel and her team drew on information gathered for the United States Nationwide Emergency Department Sample (NEDS), the largest emergency department database in the U.S. Overall, they focused on medical record reports of lawnmower-related emergency department visits and hospitalizations from Jan. 1, 2006, to Dec. 31, 2013. NEDS captures 25 million to 30 million emergency department visits, or 20 percent of all emergency department visits in the U.S., each year. The researchers also collected age, geography, gender and other information about those injured, along with the day of week and month when each visit occurred. For the analysis, the research team identi“ed 14,878 lawnmower injuries over the eightyear period, which, when adapted to re”ect national ER visit data, represented an estimated 51,151 injuries, and consisted of about 6,394 cases per year on average. For the entire study population, most of the injuries were lacerations (23,907 of 51,151, or 46.7 percent), fractures (11,433 or 22.4 percent) and amputations (11,013 or 21.5 percent). The most common injury locations were wrist or hand (33,477, or 65.4 percent) and foot or toe (10,122 or 19.8 percent). Of the 51,151 cases, 43,567 (85.2 percent) were in men; 19,162 (37.5 percent) happened in the South; 33,886 (66.3 percent) occurred on a weekday; and the majority, 36,686 (81.7 percent), occurred between April and September. By looking at standardized injury codes, or E-codes, the researchers were able to look at national averages of treatment costs for the codes and determine that emergency room charges totaled an average of $2,482 per patient, and average inpatient charges totaled $36,987 per patient. Schwengel and her colleagues caution that the study was limited to E-codes that are used by hospitals primarily for administrative purposes, and that the collection and reporting of these codes varies from state to state. However, they say the “ndings are comparable in outcome to previous studies, and that the NEDS data sample allowed for more in-depth analyses of charges, procedures performed and patient demographics for these types of injuries. Understanding what types of injuries occur in certain groups should help engineers design safer lawnmowers and policymakers create more appropriate prevention policies,Ž says Schwengel. One example of a better lawnmower design that could prevent injury, the researchers say, would be one with stopping features that automatically activate when human ”esh is detected near blades. Other authors on this paper were Daniel G. Hottinger, Isam Nasr, Joseph K. Canner and Rahul Koka of Johns Hopkins and Deepa Kattail of McMaster Childrens Hospital.INJURIESFROM PAGE 1BShall we? What is it? It is a sticky or waxy substance that secretes from special glands in the outer ear. It can be thick or runny. It may be cream colored, light yellow, golden brown, gray or even black. It may look like honey. There are a few things that make up cerumenŽ or ear wax. There are alcohol, oils, cholesterol, and triglycerides. It is important for us to have ear wax because it protects the skin in the outer ear. The wax helps our ears to stay clean and to keep bugs from getting into the canal. Even a small amount of ear wax provides us with protection from fungi, dust, foreign objects, insects, bacteria, and water. The color of ear wax can tell us a few things. If the ear wax has a red tint then it is a sign of bleeding. Usually wax is light yellow or honey colored; so if wax gets stuck in your ear and stays for a while it may turn dark brown or black. Dark brown or black wax may have gotten some dirt or dust stuck to it. Cells in your ears actually migrate the sticky stuff out the ear canals. Our jaw movement also helps that progression. Ears that are small or have irregular shapes will typically have more problems with wax not running out of the ear; thus, often a result of impaction will occur. One of the most common reasons that patients go to see doctors is for a blocked up feeling in the ear. If you experience a decrease in your hearing, dizziness, ear pain, ringing, itching or a drainage from your ear canal or pain it may be an indication that you have a impaction of ear wax. While there are over-the-counter drops and flushing mechanisms that you can purchase, take precautions while using them. Unless you know for certain that you do not have any holes in your eardrums then you should first visit your hearing health care provider for a professional assessment of the problem. Most offices will have a computerized video otoscope so that you can actually see inside your ear canal and determine what the appropriate resolution should be. If you wear hearing instruments all day long then you may also build up ear wax sooner. With the ear canal semi-open the ear wax simply will not run out as fast. Your hearing health care provider should have you on a scheduled maintenance plan for the cleaning of your hearing instrument and the cleaning of your ears. Depending upon each individuals ear wax production you may need to see your hearing health care provider sometime between one month to a maximum of six months. Most people can go four to six months. Others get clogged up in a month. There are many variables that will determine your time table for visits. The type of hearing aids and degree of hearing loss, for example. If you have a bad hearing loss and little ear canals ... a little bit of wax can not only clog up your hearing aids but stop up your ears and literally you cant hear anything. The trick is to get your cleaning appointments dialed in so that we are getting the wax out before it is causing you a problem with your hearing aids and your hearing.

THE NEWS WIRESTATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS Haddish and Hart lead Night School to No. 1 with $28MSee page 8 Monday, October 1, 2018 By TIM DAHLBERGASSOCIATED PRESSLAS VEGAS „ A small bouquet of dried ” owers was wedged inside the padlock on Gate 5 of the killing ground that was the Route 91 Harvest Festival one recent day, the only visible reminder that it was the site of the worst mass shooting in modern American history. A peek inside the chain-link fence, covered in green sheeting to keep out prying eyes, revealed a sprawling patch of asphalt and little else. Towering above were the gold windows of the Mandalay Bay, where a gambler spent the last minutes of his life in room 32-135 taking the lives of 58 others in a meticulously planned slaughter. Around Las Vegas, there are scattered remembrances of the horrors of that night a year ago. Almost every week, theres another court-ordered release of police body-camera videos that provide ” ashbacks to the night the gunman turned the fun of the glittering Las Vegas Strip into a nightmare of death and despair. And lawsuits by MGM Resorts International to force survivors to give up their right to sue the casino company that owns Mandalay Bay opened fresh wounds over the summer. But the Vegas StrongŽ T-shirts and car stickers have largely been put away. The original handmade white crosses for each victim have long since been taken away from the Welcome to Fabulous Las VegasŽ sign to eventually reside in a museum in neighboring Henderson, though some new ones were brought in for the anniversary. There has been no closure, at least of“ cially. Authorities say they will likely never be able to determine what it was that turned a high-limit video poker player into a mass murderer. But in a city that has always looked ahead relentlessly, theres not a lot of time devoted to re” ection. Even while pausing to remember the victims on the anniversary of the shooting, Las Vegas moves forward. A lot of the feeling among people is more, Lets move on,Ž said Pauline Ng Lee, a community activist and chairwoman of the Nevada Republican Mens Club. We dont have a lot of long traditions here. You can see it with buildings. Casinos come up, casinos get knocked down. People tend to look forward, not back.Ž Indeed, a look out one side of the high windows of the Mandalay Bay shows the normal sight of dozens of tourists lined up to have their pictures taken in front of the Welcome to Las Vegas sign. A glance to the left draws the eye to the vacated and somber site of the shooting on 15 acres of valuable Las Vegas Strip land that for the foreseeable future simply cannot be used for anything. Owner MGM Resorts International has no plans for the venue and no timeline for making any decisions. Meanwhile, on the other side of the hotel, work goes on around the clock on a new $1.9 billion stadium that will be the home of the NFLs Las Vegas Raiders beginning in 2020. Its a reminder that Las Vegas moves on like it always has, through the good times and the bad. Its not that the city has forgotten the shooting or the victims. The white crosses adorned with pictures of those killed were moved recently for the anniversary to the rotunda of the Clark County government building, accompanying a heart-wrenching display of paintings of each person. Gathered together for one night to enjoy country music, they are now linked together in eternity. Theres a makeshift memorial garden downtown, just around the corner from an adult bookstore, where painted stones and pictures hung in newly planted trees tell stories of lives lost. Rest easy with my grammy, Beebra,Ž read the inscription on one framed picture of a smiling woman and her young children. On a recent day, a few workers were digging a hole for a 3,000-pound Las Vegas pauses but looks ahead a year after mass shooting In this Sept. 25 photo, people look at a display of wooden crosses and a Star of David on display at the Clark County Government Center in Las Vegas. The crosses and Star of David had been part of a makeshift memorial along the Las Vegas Strip erected in memory of the victims of the Oct. 1, 2017, mass shooting in Las Vegas. AP PHOTOSIn this Sept. 21 photo, the Mandalay Bay hotel and casino re” ects the last sunlight of the day along the Las Vegas Strip in La s Vegas. The hotel was the scene of the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history when a gunman killed 58 people at a country music festival in 2017. By STEPHEN WRIGHTASSOCIATED PRESSMAKASSAR, Indonesia „ An early warning system that might have prevented some deaths in the tsunami that hit an Indonesian island on Friday has been stalled in the testing phase for years. The high-tech system of sea” oor sensors, data-laden sound waves and “ ber-optic cable was meant to replace a system set up after an earthquake and tsunami killed nearly 250,000 people in the region in 2004. But inter-agency wrangling and delays in getting just 1 billion rupiah ($69,000) to complete the project mean the system hasnt moved beyond a prototype developed with $3 million from the U.S. National Science Foundation. It is too late for central Sulawesi, where walls of water up to 20 feet high and a magnitude 7.5 earthquake killed at least 832 people in the cities of Palu and Donggala, tragically highlighting the weaknesses of the existing warning system and low public awareness about how to respond to warnings. To me this is a tragedy for science, even more so a tragedy for the Indonesian people as the residents of Sulawesi are discovering Over 800 dead in Indonesia quake and tsunamiWarning system might have saved lives AP PHOTOPeople survey damage outside the shopping mall following earthquakes and tsunami in Palu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia, Sunday. Rescuers try to reach trapped victims in collapsed buildings after hundreds of people are con“ rmed dead in a tsunami that hit two central Indonesian cities, sweeping away buildings with massive waves.ONE YEAR LATER By DARLENE SUPERVILLE and MICHAEL BALSAMOASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ FBI agents on Sunday interviewed one of the three women who have accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct as Republicans and Democrats quarreled over whether the bureau would have enough time and freedom to conduct a thorough investigation before a high-stakes vote on his nomination to the nations highest court. The White House insisted it was not micromanagingŽ the new one-week review of Kavanaughs background but some Democratic lawmakers claimed the White House was keeping investigators from interviewing certain witnesses. President Donald Trump, for his part, tweeted that no matter how much time and discretion the FBI was given, it will never be enoughŽ for Democrats trying to keep Kavanaugh off the bench. And even as the FBI explored the past allegations that have surfaced against Kavanaugh, another Yale classmate came forward to accuse the federal appellate judge of being untruthful in his testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee about the extent of his drinking in college.

Page 2 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Monday, October 1, 2018 By GARY FINEOUTASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE „ Floridas 2018 midterm election is one of the most important in years. The governors of“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:RUNNING MATE UNDER FIREThe campaign of Republican Ron DeSantis is going after Democrat Andrew Gillum over comments made by his running mate nearly two decades ago. Some voters this week got text messages that noted in”ammatory comments made by lieutenant governor nominee Chris King back in 1999. King, who narrowly lost a student election at Harvard University at the time, blamed the schools newspaper for his loss. He said at the time that he was nailed to the crossŽ and that most of the editorial staff that was so hard on me, the vast majority were Jewish.Ž The text messages said that the comments raise serious concerns about Gillums ever-mounting ties to blatant anti-Semitism.Ž King, who is a liberal Christian, previously apologized for the comments when they surfaced ahead of the August primary for governor. King came in “fth in the election won by Gillum. The Gillum campaign sharply criticized the text messages as a smear tacticŽ by the DeSantis campaign. Ron DeSantis is running one of the most divisive and toxic campaigns in Florida history,Ž said Johanna Cervone, a spokeswoman for Gillum. These type of abusive tactics are straight out of the Trump playbook and will not go unanswered.Ž DeSantis, during a campaign stop Friday in Doral, defended reminding voters of Kings comments. I think the comments are what they are, right?Ž DeSantis said. The text messages sent out by the campaign came a few days after DeSantis faulted Gillum for his support of groups such as The Dream Defenders and said that I can “nd anti-Semites around him.Ž The activist organization, which did a monthlong sit-in of the Florida Capitol back in 2013, has been sharply critical of Israels treatment of Palestinians and has called for a boycott of Israel. Gillum has said he does not support a boycott of Israel.DUELING WEBSITESThe two candidates running for Floridas chief “nancial of“cer lashed out at each other this week. Republican and current CFO Jimmy Patronis launched a website called RingsCriminalRing. com that purports to highlight Democrat Jeremy Rings shadyŽ campaign donations. The site also delves into an investigation that showed a researcher paid by the Florida Democratic Party accessed Patroniss driving records online. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement, which looked into the incident, concluded that no crime had occurred because the information was not used for fraudulent purposes. Katie Strickland, a spokeswoman for the Patronis campaign, maintained that Rings connections to criminal and scandalous donors yet again reveals his stunning lack of judgment.Ž It only took a few days for the Ring campaign to launch a rival website called JimmyPatronis. info that bashed some of Patronis campaign donors for their past legal run-ins. The site also includes a digital ad highlighting an incident where Patronis reimbursed the state for using a state-owned SUV while on private business. Patronis did not reimburse the state until he was questioned about his car use by a reporter. Patronis got a ticket while driving the SUV because he had an accident while traveling to his political consultants of“ce to pick up thank-you cards.CLINTON TO CAMPAIGN FOR GILLUMHillary Clinton may have lost Florida in the 2016 presidential election, but shes coming back to the state to help campaign for Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum. Gillums campaign announced that Clinton will join Gillum on Oct. 23 in South Florida. The announcement did not specify exactly where the two would be campaigning. Clinton made several visits to the Sunshine State ahead of the 2016 election, but the Democratic nominee lost the state to President Donald Trump by nearly 113,000 votes. Clinton, however, still got more votes than President Barack Obama did when he carried Florida in his two elections.CAMPAIGN STAFFER FIREDGillums campaign has “red a staffer after offensive tweets dating back to 2012 and 2013 surfaced early Saturday. The tweets purportedly posted by Manny Orozco-Ballestas depicted messages degrading to women and body-shaming. Screenshots of the deleted tweets were posted by conservative blogger Jacob Engels, who also has contributed to the rightwing conspiracy theory website Infowars and is an ally of Trump associate Roger Stone. The type of language this young man used on social media before his employment with our campaign is unacceptable and he will no longer be working with the campaign,Ž Gillum campaign spokesman Joshua Karp said in a statement to the Miami Herald. Orozco-Ballestas became the campaigns youth director roughly two weeks ago. Engles previously criticized him for a photo posted on Instagram last summer, in which OrozcoBallestas wore a shirt making an explicit reference about President Donald Trumps voters.Text messages and websites: This week in Florida politics New submarine USS Indiana commissioned at Florida portPORT CANAVERAL (AP) „ A new fast attack nuclear-powered submarine thats named after the state of Indiana has been commissioned in Florida. The nearly 380-footlong USS Indiana entered service Saturday following the U.S. Navy commissioning ceremony in Port Canaveral, Florida. Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb spoke at the ceremony, calling the new vessel a modern marvel.Ž The sub can reach speeds of more than 25 knots, and its powered by a reactor that wont need refueling during the ships entire planned life. Construction began in 2012 on the USS Indiana, which is the Navys 16th Virginia-class fast attack submarine. The submarine is the fourth vessel to be named after Indiana. Two others were battleships „ one used during the 1898 Spanish-American War and the other during World War II.K-9 dog named Fang killed by carjacking suspectJACKSONVILLE (AP) „ Authorities in Florida say a police dog was shot and killed while chasing an armed carjacking suspect. The Jacksonville Sheriffs Of“ce said in social media posts that the K-9 dog named Fang died early Sunday.

In a WPLG-TV report, Hallandale Beach Fire Rescue said the horses were so badly injured in the collision early Saturday that they needed to be euthanized. Gulfstream spokesman David Joseph said one of the horses ran off with a female rider and struck a second horse and its practice rider. Joseph said one jockey suffered a fractured jaw, while the other was treated at a hospital for a minor injury. The collision did not affect the Florida Sire Stakes at the racetrack later Saturday.Sheriffs office: 37 cats found locked in small moving truckHOLIDAY (AP) „ A Florida woman faces dozens of animal cruelty charges after authorities found 37 cats inside a small moving truck.

HEADLINES AROUND THE STATEBy YURI KAGEYAMAASSOCIATED PRESSTOKYO „ A powerful typhoon ripped through Japan on Sunday, forcing cancellations of ”ights and trains, including in the Tokyo area as authorities warned of strong winds and torrential rain. Farms and homes in Miyazaki on the southern main island of Kyushu were ”ooded as Typhoon Trami swept across southwestern Japan. Evacuation orders were issued for tens of thousands of people over a widespread area, including more than 250,000 people in the city of Tokushima on the island of Shikoku, the national broadcaster NHK reported. At least 51 people were injured in southern Japan, it said. Many ”ights were canceled at major airports throughout Japan, including Tokyos Narita and Haneda. The storm destroyed power lines on the southern islands of Okinawa on Saturday. Trami was expected to hit Tokyo late Sunday, and slam northern Japan on Monday. Bullet trains and other train lines were shutting down while the storm passed. Tokyos train lines announced they were shutting down after 8 p.m. The typhoon is projected to hit regions ravaged earlier this month by Typhoon Jebi, which caused landslides and ”oods and temporarily shuttered Kansai International Airport. The strongest typhoon to hit Japan in 25 years, Jebi caused 11 deaths in and around Osaka. The airport also was closed for this latest typhoon.

By BASSEM MROUEASSOCIATED PRESSBEIRUT „ A Syrian rebel group said Sunday it would not pull back its “ghters from front-line positions in the contested northwestern province of Idlib, where Russia and Turkey agreed to set up a demilitarized zone this month to avert an all-out offensive by Syrian government forces. Failaq al-Sham, one of the main Turkey-backed factions in northern Syria, also said that one of the conditions of the RussiaTurkey deal „ for rebel groups to withdraw heavy weapons from the zone „ is meaningless since it has no such weapons there. We will leave in this buffer area all what is needed to repel any treason or aggression such as anti-armor weapons,Ž the group said. The Turkey-Russia deal calls for the removal of all members of Syrian radical groups from the demilitarized zone, as well as the removal of tanks, armored personnel carriers and rebel artillery weapons form the area. The demilitarized zone is expected to be established by Oct. 15. It will cover a stretch of about 9-12 miles with troops from Russia and NATOmember Turkey conducting coordinated patrols in the zone. But Failaq al-Sham also said it would not accept any Russian patrols in rebel-held areas once the agreement goes into effect. The groups statement is likely to complicate matters further for the Russia-Turkey deal. The statement was released hours after the Britainbased Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Failaq al-Sham had begun removing some of its heavy weapons and evacuating some of its positions in the adjacent Aleppo province, which borders Idlib. On Saturday, another rebel-group, Jaysh al-Ezzah, also expressed reservations toward the deal that averted a government offensive on Idlib province, the last major stronghold of the Syrian opposition. Jaysh al-Ezzah said demilitarized zones should not only be established in rebel areas but also in areas under government control. The group also said Turkey should ensure the Idlib deal does not end up like last years deescalation zones in central and southern Syria, where rebel-held areas were later simply taken over by government forces. Last week, two jihadi groups in Idlib „ the al-Qaida-linked Horas al-Din and Ansar al-Din „ rejected the deal calling it a great conspiracy.Ž However, the main al-Qaida-linked group „ Hayat Tahrir al-Sham „ that is also the largest militant group in Idlib, has not yet announced its position regarding the demilitarized zone.Syrian rebel group wont abandon front lines in provinceUK to send 800 troops to Arctic, cites concerns about RussiaLONDON (AP) „ Britains defense secretary says the U.K. plans to boost its military presence in the Arctic next year amid concerns about increasing Russian aggression. Gavin Williamson told The Sunday Telegraph that the government is preparing a defense Arctic strategyŽ that would deploy 800 army and marine commandos to Norway in 2019 and establish a new military base there. The newspaper says Britains actions are prompted partly by anticipation that Russia will keep expanding its presence in the Arctic and of a rush for the regions oil as polar ice melts due to climate change. Williamson said: We see Russian submarine activity very close to the level that it was at the Cold War, and its right that we start responding to that.ŽOpponent of new US base on Okinawa elected governorTOKYO (AP) …… An opponent of the construction of a U.S. Marine base on the southern Japanese island of Okinawa won election as governor Sunday, beating a candidate backed by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abes ruling coalition. Denny Tamaki, the son of a U.S. serviceman and a Japanese woman, claimed victory over Atsushi Sakima in the closely fought race, Kyoto reported, as vote counting continued. Tamaki opposes a government plan to build a new military facility, enabling the closing of the Futenma Marine base in the center of a densely populated city. Many in Okinawa, which hosts about half of the 50,000 U.S. military personnel in Japan, want the base moved off the island, or even out of the country. Local residents have complained of crime, noise, pollution, and accidents associated with the U.S. bases, and protests have hampered construction at the new site for 20 years. Japan, whose own military is restricted by a paci“st constitution, relies heavily on the U.S. for security in a region that includes China and North Korea. Abes ruling Liberal Democratic Party sees the delay to the base project as a risk to the alliance. HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLDWORLD/STATE NEWS

That man, charged with stealing a car while on probation, was unhappy about how long it was taking to resolve his case. He wrote me the most vicious letters,Ž Katz said. The mildest one began, you senile old son of a „ well I wont quote all the language he used, but it got pretty violent.Ž Katz became a lawyer in 1951, after serving in World War II, and continues working on a contract basis with the state of Connecticut as a special public defender. He does almost all of his work in person and over the phone, rather than using computers, but he impresses far younger colleagues with his sharpness of mind and recall of detail. And he has no plans to retire. I like what Im doing. I wouldnt know what to do if I werent practicing law,Ž he said. There are frustrations to beat all hell, but I like what Im doing. Its very satisfying.Ž Katz, of Avon, was born on May 15, 1919 „ straw hat day, he explained. In those days men would wear a straw hat from mid-May to mid-September. After that, someone would take it off your head and put their “st through it, he said. He graduated from Connecticut State College, the school that became the University of Connecticut, and saw action in World War II in North Africa, Italy, France and Germany before attending law school at UConn. Superior Court Judge Omar Williams said Katz is asked to handle very dif“cult cases with tough defendants, and is very good at what he does. Obviously, its amazing that there is someone who is 99 years old who is still working in this “eld,Ž Williams said. But to be putting out that type of work product, to be every bit a persuasive advocate „ its absolutely incredible.Ž One recent day, Katz was trying to “nd a client in a burglary case. The man had appeared on similar charges a few days before in New Britain, and his lawyer in that appearance had not gotten back to Katz to tell him of its resolution. Despite being on the docket, the client had not been brought from prison to the courthouse. A typical St. Matthew 6:3 case,Ž Katz lamented. The left hand has no idea what the right is doing.Ž David Warner, the supervisory public defender in Hartford, said nobody that he knows of has ever questioned Katzs competence to practice law. He tells some amazing stories about his career, about the war,Ž Warner said. I thought he was joking when he “rst told me his age. Youd never know it from talking to him.Ž As a special public defender, Katz is paid $350 per case, no matter how much work he puts in, unless the case goes to trial, and then he gets an hourly wage. Katz also serves as a magistrate for small claims cases, does free legal work on civil cases for Statewide Legal Services and provides free legal assistance to veterans. He dedicated himself to public service after an uncle, who put Katz through college, refused his offer to pay him back. He said, No, what you will do is “nd someone else who needs your help, and you will help them,Ž Katz said. It just hit me that that was the right thing to do.Ž The American Bar Association said it could not determine whether Katz is the oldest practicing lawyer in the United States, and the National Association of Public Defenders says it also does not keep those records. However, having been a public defender myself for 31 years and involved with public defense since that time, I know of no one remotely approaching that age who is still active as a public defender,Ž said Ernie Lewis, the groups executive director. Katz said he plans to end his legal career when they carry me out of here.Ž In the meantime, he attends regular seminars to keep up to date on the law and wants to take a course to make him more computer literate. And the accused car thief who had such vicious words for Katz? He came around a bit once Katz managed to get the case tossed. The suspects case was taking longer than expected because Katz was having a forensic examination done of a phone that was found in the stolen car. That exam found messages that proved two other men had stolen the car and were renting it to his client. I think he mumbled a thank-you on the way out of court,Ž Katz said, chuckling, but very low key.ŽLawyer, 99, will retire when they carry me out of here AP PHOTOIn this Sept. 24 photo, attorney Morton Katz poses outside Superior Court in Hartford, Conn.

(AP) „ A car explosion that rocked downtown Allentown left three males dead, including the likely perpetrator,Ž of“cials said Sunday as federal authorities who are leading the investigation looked ahead to autopsies. We know theres been a criminal incident,Ž District Attorney James Martin told reporters at a news conference Sunday. We have a high degree of con“dence that the perpetrator was probably killed in the incident.Ž Authorities released no information about the possible cause of Saturday nights blast, including whether it was a bomb, but Martin said, Loads of us in law enforcementŽ are con“dent this was A. an isolated incident and B. theres no continuing threat.Ž Authorities are seeking the publics help in getting clues and asked anyone with information to call the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which is leading the investigation. The blast occurred a block from the PPL Center sports arena and two blocks from the popular Hamilton Street dining area in Allentown, a city of about 120,000 about 60 miles northwest of Philadelphia. The block where it occurred is a mixture of residences and small businesses, including a restaurant and a bar. The FBI, state police, and city and county authorities are investigating along with the ATF. Resident Carlos Perodin told The Morning Call of Allentown, the “re was crazy,Ž he said. The car was pretty much split in half.Ž Another witness to the aftermath of the explosion, Stephanie Connelly, told The Morning Call that she saw body parts strewn across the street. Autopsies were planned Monday on the three males found dead after the 9:30 p.m. explosion, Lehigh County Coroner Scott Grim said Sunday afternoon. Grim said he would probably be able to release the names Monday once their identities are con“rmed and their families are noti“ed. Authorities swarmed the area after the explosion. A bus station was turned into a makeshift command center with armored vehicles, dozens of police cruisers, mobile command units and even portable bathrooms, the paper reported. Several portable tents were also erected for evidence processing. Residents were asked to avoid the area, and people who live nearby were asked to shelter in place. A shelter was set up at an elementary school. The FBI had earlier said it was working with other agencies and to assess the situation and determine the cause, with public safety the bureaus highest priority.Ž Of“cials asked anyone who witnessed the blast or had information about it to contact investigators.3 dead after car explosion; perpetrator probably killed THE MORNING CALL VIA APFederal and local authorities investigate along North Hall Street in Allentown, Pa., Sunday after a “ery car explosion rocked the neighborhood on Saturday night.

The surf resort has closed pending the test results from the CDC, he said. Its unclear if the park remained closed Sunday morning and the CDC did not immediately respond to a call seeking information on whether others who visited could have Naegleria fowleri. The CDC says people are typically infected when they go diving or swimming in warm freshwater places. Normally, people are infected when contaminated water enters through their nose, according to the agency.Teacher gets 40 years for sexually assaulting studentsAURORA, Colo.

McNaughton says he isnt sure if they will reach an agreement by Monday but that hes cautiously optimistic. The U.S. and Canada are under pressure to reach a deal by the end of the day Sunday, when the U.S. must make public the full text of the agreement with Mexico.

The Honolulu StarAdvertiser reported Saturday that researchers say along with fewer humpback whale sightings, fewer male Hawaiian humpback whales have been recorded singing. Researchers have also observed a decline in the number of mother-calf pairs for the past three seasons. But despite the downward trends, scientists are not too concerned just yet. Ed Lyman with the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary says there are still plenty of whales out there. Researchers have yet to “gure out what is causing the decline in sightings. One idea is that the humpback whales have simply decided to go farther offshore or elsewhere than the usual spots where they are sighted. Whale researchers plan to meet in Hawaii in November to discuss the matter.

Kavanaugh has denied Ramirezs allegation. The person familiar with Ramirezs questioning, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, said she also provided investigators with the names of others who she said could corroborate her account. But Christine Blasey Ford, a California professor who says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers, has not been contacted by the FBI since Trump on Friday ordered the agency to take another look at the nominees background, according to a member of Fords team. Kavanaugh has denied assaulting Ford. In a statement released Sunday, a Yale classmate of Kavanaughs said he is deeply troubled by what has been a blatant mischaracterization by Brett himself of his drinking at Yale.Ž Charles ChadŽ Ludington, who now teaches at North Carolina State University, said he was friend of Kavanaughs at Yale and that Kavanaugh was a frequent drinker, and a heavy drinker.Ž On many occasions I heard Brett slur his words and saw him staggering from alcohol consumption, not all of which was beer. When Brett got drunk, he was often belligerent and aggressive,Ž Ludington said. While saying that youthful drinking should not condemn a person for life, Ludington said he was concerned about Kavanaughs statements under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Speaking to the issue of the scope of the FBIs investigation, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said White House counsel Don McGahn, who is managing Kavanaughs nomination, has allowed the Senate to dictate what these terms look like, and what the scope of the investigation is.Ž The White House isnt intervening. Were not micromanaging this process. Its a Senate process. It has been from the beginning, and were letting the Senate continue to dictate what the terms look like,Ž Sanders said. Senate Judiciary Committee member Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., requested an investigation last Friday „ after he and other Republicans on the panel voted along strict party lines in favor of Kavanaughs con“rmation „ as a condition for his own subsequent vote to put Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. Sen. Susan Collins said Sunday she is con“dent in the investigation and that the FBI will follow up on any leads that result from the interviews.Ž The Maine Republican supports the new FBI investigation and is among a few Republican and Democratic senators who have not announced a position on Kavanaugh. Republicans control 51 seats in the closely divided 100-member Senate and cannot afford to lose more than one vote on con“rmation. Senate Republicans discussed the contours of the investigation with the White House late Friday, according to a person familiar with the call who was not authorized to discuss it publicly. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., had gathered Judiciary Committee Republicans in his of“ce earlier. Republicans later called the White House to discuss the scope of the probe, the person said. But Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, a Judiciary Committee member, doubted how credible the investigation will be given the time limit. Thats bad enough, but then to limit the FBI as to the scope and who theyre going to question, that „ that really „ I wanted to use the word farce, but thats not the kind of investigation that all of us are expecting the FBI to conduct,Ž she said. Trump initially opposed such an investigation as allegations began mounting but relented and ordered one on Friday. He later said the FBI has free rein.Ž Theyre going to do whatever they have to do, whatever it is they do. Theyll be doing things that we have never even thought of,Ž Trump said Saturday as he departed the White House for a trip to West Virginia. And hopefully at the conclusion everything will be “ne.Ž He revisited the scopeŽ question later Saturday on Twitter, writing in part, I want them to interview whoever they deem appropriate, at their discretion.Ž Sanders said Trump, who has vigorously defended Kavanaugh but also raised the slight possibility of withdrawing the nomination should damaging information be found, will listen to the facts.Ž At least three women have accused Kavanaugh of years-ago misconduct. He denies all the claims. The third woman, Julie Swetnick, accused Kavanaugh and Judge of excessive drinking and inappropriate treatment of women in the early 1980s, among other accusations. Kavanaugh has called her accusations a joke.Ž Judge has said he categoricallyŽ denies the allegations. Swetnicks attorney, Michael Avenatti, said Saturday that his client had not been contacted by the FBI but was willing to cooperate with investigators.PROBEFROM PAGE 1By HOPE YENASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said on Sunday she was once a victim of sexual assault, but said womens shared outrage over such misconduct shouldnt affect Judge Brett Kavanaughs Supreme Court nomination. Conway made the comments on CNNs State of the UnionŽ while defending Kavanaugh against sexual misconduct allegations. She argued that his opponents were wrongly politicizing his nomination and turning it into a meeting of the #MeToo movement.Ž Conway said the news media and others often treat victims differently based on their politics.Ž I feel very empathetic, frankly, for victims of sexual assault, sexual harassment and rape. Im a victim of sexual assault,Ž Conway said. But she added: I dont expect Judge Kavanaugh or Jake Tapper or (Republican Sen.) Jeff Flake or anybody to be held responsible for that. You have to be responsible for your own conduct.Ž Conway did not elaborate Sunday on her experience, though shes previously alluded to her own #MeToo moment. She told a Politico forum last December that during the 2016 presidential campaign she sought to denounce cases of sexual harassment by congressmen against her and others when she was a GOP political operative, but was ignored by the press. In that talk, Conway referred to an MSNBC appearance she made in October of 2016, a day after the release of an Access HollywoodŽ tape that caught then presidential candidate Donald Trump in 2005 boasting offcamera about groping women. She implied in those comments that members of Congress had behaved inappropriately. I would talk to some of the members of Congress out there. I remember when I was younger and prettier, them rubbing up against girls sticking their tongues down womens throats. It was true,Ž Conway said during a post-presidential debate interview. Conway did not offer additional details Sunday. Asked about how she deals with her experience with sexual assault while working for Trump, whos been accused of sexual harassment, Conway said: Dont con”ate that with this, and certainly dont con”ate that with what happened to me.Ž Conway said her experience helps her understand that victims should all be heard, and they should be heard in courts of law.ŽWhite House aide Conway says she was sexual assault victim AP FILE PHOTOIn this Aug. 30 “le photo, counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway walks toward the West Wing of the White House, in Washington. rock with the victims initials.

Doctors and nurses rushed in to try to save the wounded, and people „ including players from the citys newly minted NHL team „ lined up by the hundreds to donate blood. Residents dug deep into their pockets to donate to the victims and their families. It was, former Las Vegas Review-Journal gossip columnist Norm Clarke said, reminiscent of the response to the 1980 MGM Grand “re that killed 85, when there was a community outpouring for those killed. As with the “re, most of the shooting victims were tourists. Only “ve were from the Las Vegas area. But Las Vegas itself is a city that largely is a collection of immigrants from around the nation and the world, many with no ties to each other before the shooting seemed to bring them together, at least temporarily. Lee, the community activist, remembers neighbors in gated communities who had done little but nod at each other over the years gathering to talk afterward. And a ceremony at the “rst Golden Knights hockey game a few days later had anyone who watched shedding tears. Soon, though, Vegas StrongŽ largely morphed into Vegas BornŽ with the hockey team. Its improbable run into the Stanley Cup Final became more of a story than the way the team helped bring a city together to heal. And through it all, the fun never really stopped on the same Strip where the massacre unfolded. A city that attracts 42 million visitors a year kept the welcome mat out following the shooting as tourists drank, partied and threw the dice inside bustling casinos. Its taken the Mandalay Bay some time to recover its footing, and tourism numbers are down slightly this year. But Las Vegas reinvention continues with the new stadium and the resumption of construction at two big hotel projects. The city will mark the anniversary with a string of events in the days surrounding Oct. 1. And at 10:01 p.m. „ the time the shooting began „ the lights on gleaming marquees will dim along the Strip. Its not closure, but it is one more tribute in a way only Las Vegas can give. Then, as always, the city that never sleeps will move forward once again.VEGASFROM PAGE 1 right now,Ž said Louise Comfort, a University of Pittsburgh expert in disaster management who has led the U.S. side of the project, which also involves engineers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and Indonesian scientists and disaster experts. Its a heartbreak to watch when there is a welldesigned sensor network that could provide critical information,Ž she said. After a 2004 tsunami killed 230,000 people in a dozen countries, more than half of them in the Indonesian province of Aceh, a concerted international effort was launched to improve tsunami warning capabilities, particularly in the Indian Ocean and for Indonesia, one of worlds most earthquake and tsunami-prone countries. Part of that drive, using funding from Germany and elsewhere, included deploying a network of 22 buoys connected to sea”oor sensors to transmit advance warnings. A sizeable earthquake off Sumatra island in 2016 that caused panic in the coastal city of Padang revealed that none of the buoys costing hundreds of thousands of dollars each were working. Theyd been disabled by vandalism or theft or just stopped working due to a lack of funds for maintenance. The backbone of Indonesias tsunami warning system today is a network of 134 tidal gauge stations augmented by land-based seismographs, sirens in about 55 locations and a system to disseminate warnings by text message. When the 7.5 quake hit just after 6 p.m. Friday, the meteorology and geophysics agency issued a tsunami alert, warning of potential for waves of 2 to 10 feet. It ended the warning at 6:36 p.m. That drew harsh online criticism, but the agencys head said the warning was lifted after the tsunami hit. Its unclear exactly what time tsunami waves rushed into the narrow bay that Palu is built around. The tide gauges are operating, but they are limited in providing any advance warning. None of the 22 buoys are functioning,Ž Comfort said. In the Sulawesi incident, BMKG (the meteorology and geophysics agency) canceled the tsunami warning too soon, because it did not have data from Palu. This is the data the tsunami detection system could provide.Ž Adam Switzer, a tsunami expert at the Earth Observatory of Singapore, said its a little unfairŽ to say the agency got it wrong. What it shows is that the tsunami models we have now are too simplistic,Ž he said. They dont take into account multiple events, multiple quakes within a short period of time. They dont take into account submarine landslides.Ž Whatever system is in use, he said, the priority after an earthquake in a coastal area should be to get to higher ground and stay there for a couple of hours. Power outages after the earthquake struck meant that sirens meant to warn residents to evacuate did not work, said Harkunti P. Rahayu, an expert at the Institute of Technology in Bandung. Most people were shocked by the earthquake and did not pay any thought that a tsunami will come,Ž she said. Experts say the prototype system deployed offshore from Padang „ a city extremely vulnerable to tsunamis because it faces a major undersea fault overdue for a massive quake „ can provide authoritative information about a tsunami threat within 1 to 3 minutes. That compares with 5 to 45 minutes from the now defunct buoys and the limited information provided by tidal gauges. The systems undersea seismometers and pressure sensors send data-laden sound waves to warm surface waters. From there they refract back into the depths, traveling 12 to 20 miles to the next node in the network and so on. The Padang networks “nal undersea point needs just a few more kilometers of “ber optic cable to connect it to a station on an offshore island where the cascades of data would be transmitted by satellite to the geophysics agency, which issues tsunami warnings, and to disaster of“cials. Indonesian of“cials whove been supportive of the new early warning system did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Since the 2004 tsunami, the mantra among disaster of“cials in Indonesia has been that the earthquake is the tsunami warning and signal for immediate evacuation. Not everyone is convinced a tsunami detection system is essential. What Indonesian colleagues have commented upon is that people were confused about what to do with the alert information,Ž said Gavin Sullivan, a Coventry University psychologist who works with the Indonesian Resilience Initiative on a disaster preparation project for the Indonesian city of Bandung.TSUNAMIFROM PAGE 1FROM PAGE ONE

The Sun | Monday, October 1, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: My grandson, age 26, was diagnosed with aortic stenosis at birth. He has had two surgeries to temporarily x the problem. He recently saw his doctor and was told that he must reduce his weight (311 pounds) within a few months in order to undergo his nal surgery (valve replacement). He was told how to do this „ more exercise and healthier eating habits „ but one might just as well talk to the wall. The doctor has told him that ideally his weight should be 200 pounds, but the doctor would be satised with 225-250. How do I get him to see the importance of becoming healthier so he doesn't die on the operating table or not be able to have the surgery? „ T.S. ANSWER: I wish I knew the answer that would work for everyone. I would settle for an answer that would work for most. Your grandson's doctor is certainly right that a better diet and more exercise are an eective way to lose weight. Unfortunately, advice alone rarely leads to sustained signicant weight loss. There are many reasons that people gain weight and others that make it hard to lose weight. Simply receiving the advice is probably not going to work. Given how serious his issue is, your grandson should be seeing an expert in weight loss. In addition to diet advice and exercise, he certainly should consider other treatments, including medication and surgical procedures. These increase the likelihood of long-term signicant weight loss. Some procedures to help people lose weight can be done endoscopically with minimal risk. This is especially relevant for people who are not good candidates for traditional surgery, such as people with heart problems. You would think that a necessary cardiac surgery would be sufcient motivation to lose weight, but my experience suggests that he will need much more help. DEAR DR. ROACH: I like to research my various conditions online so that I can have discussions with my physicians. The internet is wonderful for that, but I am increasingly frustrated with the plethora of pseudoscience sites/ articles. What tips can you suggest in order to nd accurate, scientic information for health concerns? „ D.M. ANSWER: I share your concern. The misinformation I see on a daily basis ranges from benign to dangerous. You can nd something that will agree with whatever position you want to take. There are a few sites that I trust. My rst place to start is the National Library of Medicine at www.medlineplus.gov. The information, some of which comes from the National Institutes of Health and some from trusted partners, is reliable and written at dierent levels of sophistication to match the type of question. Some institutions, such as the Mayo Clinic, have very robust and reliable information written for the public. UpToDate, a continuously updated medical textbook for professionals, has a patient education library with well-written information. Many medical societies have excellentquality information. Unfortunately, there are unreliable groups with very reliable-sounding names, so one must be very cautious. There are sites that rate health information as to reliability. The Health On the Net Foundation certies websites as to trustworthiness with its HONcode, which can be found on pages that meet its criteria. Web of Trust is an add-on to web browsers that rates reputation of websites. This can sometimes let you know when you are on an unreliable site.DEAR ABBY: My daughter, "Roxanne," married right out of high school. Eleven years later she nally woke up and realized the man of her dreams was a deadbeat. She has now been divorced as long as she was married. She's very sensitive, and I don't know how to tell her she needs to change her attitude about life in general, because no one wants to hear her recite all the bad things that have happened to her since childhood. Roxanne is a wonderful, beautiful woman, and my heart breaks to think of her spending the rest of her life alone. I don't mind listening so she can get it out of her system, but how do I get her to let it go and move forward? „ Mom Who Loves Her In Kentucky DEAR MOM: Tell her you love her, but that repeating her unresolved grievances is getting her nowhere. She needs to talk to a licensed professional. Urge her to discuss these painful things with a therapist who can put her on a path to putting them behind her. DEAR ABBY: I am a junior in college, and I recently transferred from a two-year school to a fouryear school. I have a few friends, but their class loads are so heavy I don't get to spend time with them. I have considered joining one of the two sororities on campus. But I am worried that if I do I will have to change my personality and likes/dislikes in order to t in. I'm not concerned with how I look vs. how they look, but rather if I will t in. I want more friends and friendships that will last beyond school, but I don't want to lose who I am because I joined a sorority. „ To Rush Or Not To Rush DEAR TO RUSH OR NOT: Membership in a sorority does not guarantee that you will have friendships that last beyond college. If you want to widen your social circle, the same thing can be accomplished by living in a dorm and joining clubs and special interest groups on campus. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is about looking for salespeople in department stores: "Dear Heloise: Two days ago, I went into a major department store to make a purchase, found what I wanted, but I had to hunt down a salesperson to ring it up! So many stores have cut back on one of their most important assets „ PEOPLE. "Why bother to open your doors if you don't have enough people to wait on customers, help them nd what they are looking for and then ring up the item? And so many salespeople are poorly trained or are burdened with additional chores, making it dicult to pay attention to a customer. I guess service is becoming a thing of the past." „ Vicki T., Middle River, Md. Vicki, this seems to be a growing problem. So, readers, do you face this problem where you live? Write and let us know. „ HeloiseSignicant weight loss requires a trusted support system Mom sees lonely life ahead for easily hurt daughter Where has service gone?Hints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby

Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddishs Night SchoolŽ debuted with $28 million in ticket sales, according to estimates Sunday. The race for the weekend top spot was, in the end, a laugher. Warner Bros. animated release Smallfoot,Ž which cost about $80 million to make, trailed in second with $23 million. Not since Melissa McCarthys The BossŽ topped the box of“ ce in April 2016 has a comedy that didnt mix other genre elements been No. 1. The romantic comedy Crazy Rich AsiansŽ was a huge success, leading the box of“ ce for four straight weeks, and Tyler Perrys two horror-comedies „ Boo! A Madea HalloweenŽ and its sequel „ both opened at the top. But big-screen comedy has been in a tailspin for years. It took two of comedys biggest names teaming up to push Universals Night SchoolŽ to the years best comedy opening. Weve been very consistent in this genre,Ž said Jim Orr, distribution chief for Universal. When you get in business with people like Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish who are just on “ re, and then really extraordinary “ lmmakers like (producer) Will Packer, thats how you get good results.Ž More than most studios, Universal has stuck by comedy. This year, it also released the prom-night farce BlockersŽ ($60.1 million worldwide on a $21 million budget) and the comic musical Mamma Mia! Here We Go AgainŽ ($390.1 million worldwide on a $75 million budget). Its the second straight No. 1 for Universal, which last week led ticket sales with the Amblin Entertainmentproduced fantasy The House With a Clock in Its Walls.Ž It earned $12.5 million in its second weekend. We have a very diverse approach to our slate,Ž Orr said. Were not just superhero movies or anything else like that. When you see these kinds of results, you know that thats the right thing to do, that it pays off.Ž Frights not laughs have become the hotter attraction at the movies, but for one weekend at least, horror and comedy switched roles. Lionsgates Halloween-themed Hell FestŽ debuted meekly with $5.1 million. Over the last few years, comedy has just taken a real roller coaster ride with audiences either not locking into the premise or not vibing with the stars,Ž said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst or comScore. The quality, or at least the perceived quality of many of the movies, especially the R-rated comedies, has been so bad that time after time people got disenchanted by the genre.Ž Night School,Ž in which Hart plays a man who returns to his high school to get his GED certi“ cate (Haddish plays his teacher), fared poorly with critics, earning a 30 percent freshŽ rating on Rotten Tomatoes. But the draw of Hart and Haddish was enough to supersede bad reviews. This is Harts 11th No. 1 “ lm. It also helped that Night SchoolŽ reteamed Haddish with director Malcolm D. Lee. Their Girls TripŽ was 2017s biggest comedy hit, making $140.4 million globally. Night SchoolŽ drew a diverse audience: 37 percent white, 30 percent African-American and 24 percent Hispanic. David Lowerys The Old Man & the Gun,Ž which Robert Redford has said will be his “ nal “ lm as an actor (though hes wavered on that), opened in “ ve theaters, scoring a strong per-screen average of $30,000. Redford plays an aged bank robber in the heist “ lm co-starring Sissy Spacek and Casey Af” eck. And Free Solo,Ž National Geographics documentary about rock climber Alex Honnolds ropeless ascent of Yosemites El Capitan, grossed $300,804 in four theaters. The per-screen average of $75,201, the company said, is the best screen-average opening ever for a documentary. National Geographic debuted E. Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chins “ lm not just in the usual limited-release cities of New York and Los Angeles, but in climbing capitals Denver and Boulder, Colorado. The Night SchoolŽ-led weekend „ up 15.5 percent compared with last year „ helped Hollywood score the second-best September at the box of“ ce. It follows September 2017, when ItŽ set records. Warner Bros. horror spinoff The NunŽ ($330 million worldwide) was this months top “ lm. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore.

As the dust of Friday night settles, Im the one still smiling. Thursday on the Sun Sports podcast, me and my co-host Vinnie Portell of the Venice Gondolier unveiled our selections for our high school fantasy football league. Vinnie, who Ive worked with since we were sophomores at the University of South Florida, went mostly Pirates at the top of the draft „ as he swiped quarterback Logan Rogers, the explosive Marc Jean-Louis and a receiver Ive been hyping these past couple weeks in Tyler Perry. I later forced him to swap Perry for Weston Wolff of Venice. That worked out well for me. It was a fun little addition to our podcast. We ran a fourteam fantasy league at my last paper in Georgia and the players really seemed to enjoy it. In fact, I won that league as well. Following the draft, Vinnie was quite pleased with his squad, and Ill admit I was a bit nervous given the firepower that Port Charlotte possesses. As the one that covers them primarily, I know better than most. In his words: Im going to make you watch yourself lose.Ž Boy did that backfire on him. Turns out Perry was the only fantasy stud on Friday in the Pirates loss to North Fort Myers. The 6-foot-3 wideout made the most of his opportunities, catching five balls for 147 yards and two scores in garbage time of a 49-13 romp. The two touchdowns actually salvaged a solid day for Rogers, who finished with 20 points, but it was no match for my team, which outscored Vinnies 128-59. Ill rattle off some of my teams scores. Charlotte quarterback Alex Muse got me 14 with two touchdowns, Venice running back Brandon Gregory had 168 all-purpose yards to the By JACOB HOAGSTAFF WRITERAt 5-foot-8, 175 pounds, North Port High School running back Jalien Whye isnt fooling anyone as an imposing being. But dont tell him that. Whye has a thirst for contact regardless of size or strength. He doesnt shy away from top-level defenders, rather he seeks them out. Just ask the Lakewood Ranch defenders who let him run for 212 yards and four touchdowns on Friday. Even though Im a smaller guy, I do play physical,Ž Whye said. To me, heart and pride are everything. I may not be the biggest running back, but I for sure have the biggest heart. For me, I like to go for the biggest linebacker, I want him. Whether I lose or win, I want him. I need to work on my speed, but what I lack in speed I make up in power.Ž Hes not a big back, but he certainly packs By DOUG FERGUSONAP GOLF WRITERSAINT-QUENTINEN-YVELINES, France „ Europe waited two long years for that one moment when the Ryder Cup was back in its hands. Exactly when it happened Sunday was unclear, making it all the better. At roughly the same time, in two singles matches on two greens at Le Golf National separated by 150 yards of water, Francesco Molinari and Sergio Garcia each made par to secure at least a half-point, either one giving Europe the 14 points it needed to regain the Ryder Cup from the Americans. As the celebration was just getting started, Molinari capped off the “rst 5-0 week at the Ryder Cup for a European. Three of those points came at the expense of Tiger Woods, who left France without contributing a point. Molinari won his singles match against Phil Mickelson, of“cially putting the winning point on the board for Europe and putting Mickelson in the record book for the most losses in Ryder Cup history. Then, Garcia won his match to set the record for the most career points in Ryder Cup history. It was like that all week. Europe produced stars old and new with a team that was as strong as ever. We got it right this week,Ž European captain Thomas Bjorn said. We never, ever looked toward their team about what they were about. We were about us as a team and what we do. ... Everything that this Ryder Cup was is what I think the Ryder Cup should be about for a European team.Ž Mostly, its about winning. The “nal shot came from Alex Noren, who after conceding a short birdie putt to Bryson DeChambeau on the 18th hole, made a 40-foot birdie putt to win the match. That made it 17-10, the biggest Ryder Cup rout in 12 years. Two years after the Americans thought they had their Ryder Cup problems “gured out, Europe reminded them Sunday which team practically has owned that shiny gold trophy for the last quarter-century. Europe now has won nine of the last 12. The Americans remain winless away from home since 1993. And there wasnt much U.S. captain Jim Furyk could do about it. They played some great golf this week, and I take my cap off,Ž Furyk said. Thomas was a better captain and their team outplayed us. And theres nothing else more you can say. They deserved to win.Ž Molinari was just as good on his own as he was with Tommy Fleetwood, and the best year of his gol“ng life somehow got better. Just over two months ago, he was posing with that silver claret jug at the British Open as Italys “rst major champion. This felt just as sweet because it was a trophy he shared with a team. This team has been incredible from the start,Ž Molinari said. We were determined to do the job. Nothing was going to stop us. And you saw it on the course.Ž It was the most lopsided victory since consecutive 18-9 victories by Europe more than a decade ago when the Americans looked utterly lost. They formed a Ryder Cup Task Force after the 2014 loss. The idea was to build co ntinuity GOLF: Ryder Cup AREA SPOTLIGHT: North Port Football THIS WEEK IN SPORTS NFL: Jacksonville 31, N.Y.

He refused to let it happen again. Bortles threw two touchdown passes, including a 67-yarder to Donte Moncrief, and the Jaguars offense gave the defense plenty of help in a 31-12 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday. Bortles ended up with a career-high 388 yards passing, topping 375 yards for the second time in three games. (The defense) played incredible again today,Ž Bortles said. There were some sloppy parts of the game that weve got to clean up, but to give them some points to go play with the lead was good.Ž It was a much different story a week ago, when the Jaguars (3-1) managed just two “eld goals in a 9-6 loss to Tennessee. Bortles was clearly off in that one. He was much sharper against the Jets (1-3), who have dropped three straight. He found T.J. Yeldon wide open for a 31-yard score in the second quarter and then beat a blitz with the deep pass to Moncrief down the sideline. The pass to Moncrief was Jacksonvilles lone offensive highlight in an ugly second half. The Jaguars had three turnovers that led to nine points for the Jets. Its just growth. Thats the easiest way to say it,Ž Jaguars defensive tackle Malik Jackson said. Weve got to be consistent like this all time. Offense dropped the ball last week, so to speak, but this week they picked it up and put 500 yards on the board. Thats the best measure of a man and a football player „ to put that turmoil behind you and move on and show your growth, and we did that.Ž Jets rookie Sam Darnold was harassed early and often, getting sacked three times and nearly throwing three interceptions.

PETERSBURG, Fla. „ The Tampa Bay Rays found success with a new pitching formula. Ryan Yarbrough got his rookie-leading 16th win and the Rays turned another bullpen game into their 90th victory, beating the Toronto Blue Jays 9-4 on Sunday. The Rays (90-72) went to the unconventional plan of using relievers to open games in addition to traditional starters in mid-May because of injuries. The results were about equal, as Tampa Bay went 46-38 with regular starters and 44-34 when utilizing the bullpen, and the trend began to take hold around the majors. But no team did it as often as the Rays. I dont think you can really argue with the results weve had with it, and not just with me but with other guys too,Ž Yarbrough said. For it to work that well was a big blessing, and you never know, if it didnt work that well, wed never know where we could be right now.Ž Ryne Stanek was Tampa Bays openerŽ for the 29th time and went two scoreless innings. Yarbrough (16-6) followed and gave up two runs and four hits over three innings to get his 14th relief win. Austin Pruitt went the “nal 3 1/3 innings to pick up his fourth save. Hes gone three or more innings in four of his “ve career saves. The Rays went 87-60 after losing 12 of their “rst 15 games. Hopefully the groundwork has been laid,Ž Rays manager Kevin Cash said. The core group that has gotten some opportunities, played at a really high level, learned how to win together.Ž Outgoing Blue Jays manager John Gibbons decided to have some fun in the “nale and let 35-year-old catcher Russell Martin manage the game. Martin said he thought about it for a couple secondsŽ before deciding to keep himself on the bench, declining the opportunity to serve as a player-manager. It was fun,Ž Martin said. Didnt realize how much went into it. A cool experience. Its tougher than it looks.Ž Toronto announced Wednesday that Gibbons will not be back as manager next season. Hes one of my favorites,Ž Martin said. Im going to miss him. Hes a special guy. Hes kind of like having a second dad.Ž Over two stints totaling 11 seasons, Gibbons went 793-789 with the Blue Jays. Toronto “nished 73-89, a three-game drop from 2017. Tampa Bay improved 10 games from last year and joined the 2012 Rays (90) and 2013 Texas Rangers (91) as the only 90-win teams since the second wild card was introduced in 2012 to miss the postseason. Joey Wendle and Jake Bauers both had two RBIs for the Rays, who went 13-6 against Toronto. Tampa Bay has dominated the series at home, going 111-74. Sam Gaviglio (3-10) allowed “ve runs and six hits in 5 2/3 innings.SEATS AVAILABLEDespite the strong on-“eld showing, the Rays announced home attendance of 1,154,973 was their lowest since 2005 (1,141,699). Tampa Bay drew 1,253,619 last season. Sundays crowd was 13,313. Only Miami (811,104) drew fewer fans.STAYING THE COURSEThe Rays are happy with the progress of two-way player Brendan McKay at Single-A Charlotte this season and plan to continue the experiment. Where this ends up going I think we dont know exactly still, but were really encouraged,Ž Tampa Bay senior vice president of baseball operations Chaim Bloom said. Bloom said McKay, whose season ended prematurely because of an oblique injury, has been working in the instructional league and has gotten back to where hes a healthy player.ŽRAYS HOT STREAKSTommy Pham walked in the third to extend his on-base streak to 32 games, the longest active streak in the majors.

MLB: Tampa Bay 9, Toronto 4Daniel Watson Medical News Today BOSTON Š The medical community now has a safer and more effective alternative to sex pills, which they can immediately start offering to male patients. It will not require a prescription. The alternative, called Sensum+ is an amazing new sex cream that activates a sensation pathway on the penis known as TRPA1. When applied as directed, it leads to incredible arousal and much more satisfying erections. It also promotes powerful climaxes and ultimately results in signi“ cant imp rovements in performance. Men can expect outstanding sexual imp rovements with regular use. The penis will become hyper sensitive, making them easily aroused and excitableŽ explains Dr. Henry Esber, the Boston based physician who introduced Sensum+ to market. And thats because Sensum+ does what no other sex pill or drug has done before Š it stimulates a special sensory pathway right below the skin, which leads to phenomenal sensation.Ž Overtime, constant exposure (especially if circumcised) leads to decreased penis sensitivity, which can cause problems with arousal and erection quality. There just isnt enough feeling to get excited.Ž Diabetes, antidepressants and normal aging also leads to desensitization, a can make the situation even worse.Ž This is what makes Sensum+ so effective and why the clinical studies and clinical use studies have been so positive.ŽMISDIAGNOSIS LEADS TO UNNEEDED PRESCRIPTIONSAfter years of clinical research and testing, Dr. Esber and his team have discovered an incredible compound that triggers arousal while helping men achieve erections more easily. This compound isnt a drug. Its the active ingredient in Sensum+ And according to users, it produces sensational results. Many men report remarkable imp rovements in sexual performance and overall satisfaction. They are more sexually active than theyve been in years with the average Sensum+ user over the age of 50. Clinical studies show Sensum+ s key ingredient activates the TRPA1 sensation pathway right below the skin of the penis. According to research, many men adults and seniors who suffer sexually have lost sensation in their penis due to constant rubbing and exposure and health related issues such as diabetes, hernia surgery, use of some antidepressants, multiple sclerosis, and other type of illnesses. This desensitization often makes sex extremely challenging. Without a 100% feeling in the penis, its next to impossible to get truly aroused. Worse, modern day sex drugs have absolutely no effect on sensation and are laden with side effects. They simply stimulate an erection by enhancing blood ” ow. Its why most men are rarely satis“ ed after taking them and why Sensum+ users are al ways stocking up on more and couldnt be happier. We knew the science behind Sensum+ was there, but we never expected results like were seeing. Its far exceeded our expectationsŽ said a spokesperson for the company. A STAGGERING 80% IMPROVEMENT IN SENSITIVITYResearchers have conducted several clinical studies on Sensum+ and the results from the most recent are undoubtedly the most impressive. A data analysis of three clinical sur veys of 370 men showed that an amazing 80% of Sensum+ users experienced dramatic improvements while using the cream and as a result were aroused easier and a phenomenal boost in performance. Additionally, 77.4% of men also reported much more satisfying climaxes, making sex for both them and their partners nearly 300% more satisfying. I have full feeling and sensitivity back in my penis. Everything feels better. My erections are harder, Im more easily aroused, I can “ nally climax again. This stuff honestly works like magic in the bedroom. I couldnt be happier at 66!Ž raves one Sensum+ user. HOW SENSUM+ WORKSSensum+ is a new sex cream for men thats to be applied twice a day for the “ rst two weeks then just once every day after. There are no harmful side effects for either the user or partner. It also does not require a prescription. The active ingredient is an organic compound known as cinnamaldehyde with a patented combination of sexually rousing extracts. Research shows that as men get older, they often lose sensitivity to the penis. Although very subtle, this desensitization can signi“ cantly hinder sexual performance and lead to serious problems with becoming aroused and staying/getting hard. The cinnamaldehyde in Sensum+ is one of the only known ingredients to activate a special sensation pathway on the penis called TRPA1. Once activated, it restores tremendous sensation to the penis, stimulating arousal and powerful erections. This would explain why so many users are experiencing impressive results so quickly and why the makers of Sensum+ offer their low cots cream with an amazing guarantee. GUARANTEE DISCOUNTED SUPPLY TAKES RISK OFF CONSUMERSA large percentage of men report life changing results with Sensum+ Thats why it is now being sold with an above-industry standard guarantee. We can only make this guarantee because we are 100% certain this cream works,Ž says Esber. We want to take risk off the consumers. So besides offering massive discounts, were also offering this guarantee, so they dont have to risk a cent.Ž Heres how it works: Use the cream exactly as directed and in just one week, you must feel a signi“ cant improvement in sexual sensations. You must be more easily aroused with harder, longer lasting erections and be having the best sex youve had in years. Otherwise, simply return the empty bottles. Then, the company will refund your money immediately.HOW TO GET SENSUM+This is the of“ cial release of Sensum+ As such, the company is offering a special discounted supply to any reader who calls within the next 48 hours.

After running for a 60-yard touchdown up the middle in one of his first games, the coach immediately switched him to running back. Much like his idol, former San Diego Charger and NFL Hall of Famer LaDanian Tomlinson, Whye is a patient player that gets stronger as the game wears on. He gets close to 20 carries each week and is the workhorse of the offense. That takes a toll on some high school backs, but when most running back would start to slow down, Whye gets his second wind. I like to get into my groove,Ž Whye said. I can make a play on one or two plays and keep going. Coach relies on me to move the ball and I tell him I got him.Ž Whye is relied upon as the lifeblood of the offense, all credit to the offensive line as well, but he makes the offense churn most Friday nights. For instance, against Lakewood Ranch, Whye had a hefty 43-carry workload. Thats a lot of pressure for the young back, but he wears it with pride. When his team counts on him, he delivers more often than not. I like it,Ž Whye said. If we get down in a situation and everybody tells me, Come on Jalien we need you, that makes me strive to do better. I like the pressure, I like when Im relied on to make big plays.Ž That role also comes with soaking up pressure from other players like sophomore quarterback Steffan Johnson. Johnson hasnt quite hit his stride just yet as a young player. Having Whye carrying the load gives him more time to progress as a thrower and let his running back help manage the game. Obviously thats huge for us,Ž Hatler said. In the passing game, the play action has been OK for us and we have to be more efficient, but having a good running game certainly helps with that.Ž A lot of times he plays hobbled. Hes battled through both a high ankle and knee sprain this season, but was still able to rush for a then season-high 124 yards and two touchdowns against Sarasota. Ive just been practicing hard to get back to where I was,Ž Whye said. I missed a couple games this year do to injuries, but it didnt stop me. I came back and bounced back.Ž Playoffs might not be in the cards for Whye and the Bobcats this season as they continue to build up the program, but thats not everything for him. He wants to show the younger kids how to work so in turn down the road they can lead the team to new heights. Practicing hard and working hard knowing that I have the potential to do something for this team, it keeps me going,Ž Whye said. I just keep working hard.ŽWHYEFROM PAGE 1SUN PHOTO BY TOM ONEILNorth Port running back Jalien Whye carries during a game against Sarasota on Sept. 14. tune of 30 points and North Port running back Jalien Whye nearly outscored Vinnies whole team with a 45-point effort with 200-plus yards on the ground. I could go on. For anyone reading this wondering why Im beating my chest over fantasy football, you obviously havent played, and I recommend you do and keep up with our league. Its a fantastic fake sport. But for the people who arent into it, there were plenty of realŽ sports going on Friday as well. It was a mixed bag for area football. While Port Charlotte was muddying up their playoff picture, Charlotte was running away with another one „ with their backups playing most of the second half, I hear. Before he was pulled with the Tarpons holding a commanding lead, running back Jayden Grant totaled 100 yards on six carries with two touchdowns. Quarterback Alex Muse added two touchdowns of his own. The Tarpons margin of victory this season has hovered around 23 points per contest with two shutouts. They seem to be legitimate playoff contenders outside of the loss to Venice, who seems state-title legitimate after a thrilling 24-21 win over Braden River. After a near two-hour lightning delay, the Indians squeaked out a rivalry win over the Pirates. That should hold up until one of the coaches turns the other one in for some violation, to keep with tradition. Celebrating homecoming, North Port took advantage of a good matchup with Lakewood Ranch and heeded my sound advice in my Things to WatchŽ tweet before the game. They fed Whye like it was a Thanksgiving feast. Whye had 43 carries on the night, amassing 212 yards and four touchdowns „ and again, 45 fantasy points. The bruising back has carried the load and the pressure of being the guy to keep the offense churning this season. The Bobcats shook off two close losses from weeks prior and beat the Mustangs, 34-6, as they earned their first district win. Lastly, Lemon Bay held undefeated Hardee scoreless through the first half, which is a feat in itself. But the Mantas couldnt hold on as the Wildcats pulled away, 21-0. Another week of prep football is in the books and the season is now half over. As much as I enjoy covering all sports, theres a special place in my heart for football, real or fake. Now, with district play in full swing, the contenders are separated from the pretenders and the playoff-caliber teams emerge. Outside of my fantasy team, it has yet to be determined which team will make the biggest surge down the stretch. Could it be Charlotte? Could Venice repeat as 7A state champs? Maybe if I keep picking against them on the podcast they might. It has yet to be seen, but I look forward to figuring it out over the course of the next five weeks.LUCKFROM PAGE 1 HOMETOWN HEROES: Ricky Knapp

The Knights (4-0), who defeated Pittsburgh, 45-14, on Saturday afternoon, moved up a spot to No. 12 in the AP poll and No. 13 in the coaches poll. Its the 17th consecutive week during which UCF has been ranked in the AP poll dating back to last season. UCF, which owns the nations longest win streak at 17 games, hosts SMU at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Spectrum Stadium. The highest ranked conference champion from the Group of 5 leagues in the College Football Playoff rankings, which will be released starting Oct. 30, earns a New Years Six bowl bid. Miami dropped a spot to No. 17 in the AP poll despite dominating North Carolina on Thursday. Florida jumped back into the AP rankings at No. 22 with its 13-6 win over then-No. 23 Mississippi State on Saturday. Elsewhere, the top two spots remained unchanged in both polls, with Alabama at No. 1, followed by Georgia.

And so is the Dolphins undefeated start. Tom Brady threw for 274 yards and three touchdowns and the New England Patriots handed Miami its “rst loss of the season in a 38-7 rout on Sunday. It denied the Dolphins (3-1) their “rst 4-0 start since Hall of Fame coach Don Shulas last season in 1995. I thought we got what we needed from our team today,Ž Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. Brady improved to 15-1 as a starter against Miami. We hadnt played well in the last weeks,Ž Brady said. This games great. But youve gotta turn the page.Ž New England (2-2) may be doing that without one of its best players. Tight end Rob Gronkowski, one of Bradys favorite targets, left the game in the third quarter with a right ankle injury and did not return. It put a slight damper on an afternoon in which New England showed the kind of consistency on both sides of the ball that had been missing in back-toback losses to Jacksonville and Detroit. Since 2002, the Patriots are 7-0 after back-to-back losses. In its two losses, New Englands offense struggled to “nd its rhythm and sustain drives on third down. It did both Sunday, taking advantage of a Dolphins defense that couldnt seem to match the Patriots speed. Running back James White “nished with a rushing and receiving touchdown. Rookie running back Sony Michel also rushed 25 times for 112 yards and his “rst career touchdown. It was perfect timing after Rex Burkhead went on injured reserve last week with a neck injury. Miami struggled in every phase and looked very much like the team that has lost 10 straight road games to New England. Ryan Tannehill “nished 11 for 20 for 100 yards and an interception. He was pulled in the fourth quarter in favor of Brock Osweiler. Osweiler connected with Frank Gore for a 6-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter for Miamis lone score. Not a lot went right for us,Ž Tannehill said. Miami was just 3 of 11 on third down and managed only 172 total yards. The Dolphins also had two turnovers and were whistled for 10 penalties, totaling 89 yards I feel like its nothing they did,Ž running back Kenyan Drake said. I felt like we out there and the penalties and all those things killed us.Ž Miami had a strong start on defense, intercepting Brady on New Englands second offensive series. But following a quick Dolphins punt, the Patriots bounced back with a 55yard TD pass from Brady to Cordarrelle Patterson to take a 10-0 lead. The 55-yard pass was New Englands longest play of the season. Patterson caught the pass over his shoulder along the sideline and stutter-stepped past safety T.J. McDonald to “nd a clear path to the end zone. Then about midway through the second quarter, Tannehill fumbled a snap to begin a series that was recovered by Patriots linebacker Kyle Van Noy on the Dolphins 2 White ran it in for a touchdown on the next play to make it 17-0 The Patriots then ended the half with a 15-play, 85-yard drive capped by an acrobatic touchdown grab in the end zone by Phillip Dorsett. Dorsett, who had no catches in last weeks loss to Detroit, “nished with four catches for 55 yards.MR. 200Dolphins running back Frank Gore became the eighth running back in NFL history to appear in 200 NFL games. Gore took the “eld in the “rst quarter of Miamis matchup with the Patriots. With 14,124 rushing yards, Gore entered the day ranked fourth on the NFLs all-time rushing list behind only Emmitt Smith (18,335), Walter Payton (16,726) and Barry Sanders (15,269).INJURIESDolphins center Daniel Kilgore left the game in the “rst half with an arm injury. Safety Bobby McCain left with a knee injury.UP NEXTThe Dolphins visit Cincinnati next Sunday. The Patriots host the Colts on Thursday night.By ANDREW SELIGMANAP SPORTS WRITERCHICAGO (AP) „ From the moment they identi“ed him as the quarterback to lift their struggling franchise, the Chicago Bears envisioned big games from Mitchell Trubisky. As breakthroughs go, this was a huge one. Trubisky threw a career-high six touchdown passes „ one shy of the NFL record „ and the NFC North-leading Bears pounded the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 48-10 on Sunday. The Bears (3-1) won their third straight with Trubisky delivering the sort of performance general manager Ryan Pace envisioned when he traded up a spot to draft the prized quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick last year. He “nished one TD pass short of the franchise mark set by Sid Luckman against the New York Giants in 1943. Luckman is tied with seven others in NFL history to throw seven TD passes in a game. The Bears also racked up 483 yards in this one, nearly matching their record of 488 in that same game, on the way to their highest point total since 5120 victory over Tennessee in 2012. Its very humbling because you know the history of the Bears and how many great players have come through this organization,Ž Trubisky said. For me, youre just trying to create your own legacy and try to make a path.Ž The defense did its part, harassing Ryan Fitzpatrick before Jameis Winston took over to start the second half. And the Bears (3-1) matched their longest win streak since a 3-0 start in 2013. Trubisky had never thrown for more than two touchdowns in a game. But he tossed “ve in the “rst half alone as Chicago grabbed a 38-3 lead. The only other player with more in a single half since 1991 was Green Bays Aaron Rodgers with six in the “rst two quarters against the Bears in a romp at Lambeau Field in November 2014. Trubisky had no trouble “nding wide-open receivers against a struggling secondary, completing 19 of 26 passes for 354 yards. Hopefully, this is a day where we look back down the road here,Ž Bears coach Matt Nagy said, and say, Remember that day where he had that great game? And it helped catapult him into being a great quarterback.Ž Khalil Mack had a strip-sack in the “rst half against Fitzpatrick. That made him the “rst player with a sack and forced fumble in four straight games since Robert Mathis for Indianapolis in 2005. He also appeared to tip the ball as Winston released a pass that Danny Trevathan picked off on the “rst drive of the second half. OVERMATCHEDComing off a tight loss to Pittsburgh on Monday night, the Buccaneers (2-2) were simply overwhelmed in this one. We should “re every person that was on that “eld today, starting with me. That was horri“c,Ž coach Dirk Koetter said.INJURIESBuccaneers: TE O.J. Howard left in the “rst half because of a knee injury. ... CB Carlton Davis III aggravated a groin injury. Bears: LB Sam Acho left in the “rst half with a pectoral injury.UP NEXTBuccaneers: Have bye week. At Atlanta on Oct. 14. Bears: Have bye week. At Miami on Oct. 14. and Jalen Ramsey each dropped INTs that would have ended New Yorks “rst two scoring drives. Regardless, the Jaguars allowed 178 yards, allowed 10 “rst downs and recorded its “rst safety since 2014. It was the teams best defensive output since holding Cincinnati to 148 yards last November. The Jets scored their lone touchdown following Yeldons fourth-quarter fumble, a 2-yard pass from Darnold to Jordan Leggett. It was hardly the Židentity gameŽ the Jets had wanted. I felt we took a step back today,Ž Jets coach Todd Bowles said. Nobody played well. We gave up a bunch of yards. We usually “ght to be in ballgames. Were usually in every ballgame. But we shot ourselves in the foot too much in the “rst half today. Its back to the drawing board in every phase „ offense, defense, special teams. Its back to the drawing board. The other three games, we lost on silly things but we were in ballgames. Today, I dont think we were in the ballgame. We didnt give ourselves a chance.Ž It was about what the con“dent Jaguars expected. They improved to 6-1 following losses in coach Doug Marrones two seasons. Jacksonvilles biggest concern coming out of the victory was the health of running back Leonard Fournette, who re-injured his strained right hamstring. Fournette missed the last two games while trying to get back to full speed, but tweaked it during his return. Fournette ran 11 times for 30 yards before leaving the game for good. Marrone said hes worried about the relapse. Id be (lying) if I said no,Ž Marrone said. Anytime you come back and youre ready to go and then all of a sudden you get injured again, its not a good sign.ŽQB STATSBortles completed 29 of 38 passes, with an interception on a ball tipped at the line of scrimmage. Darnold was 17 of 34 passing for 167 yards. The 1-2 punch of Bilal Powell and Isaiah Crowell combined for 26 yards rushing. Weve got to make plays that were there,Ž Darnold said. Ive got to make throws that are there and not think too much, take what they give me and well start to find completions and get into a rhythm.ŽFIRST SACKSJets defensive lineman Leonard Williams and Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue recorded their first sacks of the season. Williams took down Bortles in the second quarter. Ngakoue sacked Darnold on the last play of the “rst half.KEY INJURIESJaguars center Brandon Linder was ruled out at halftime with a back injury. ...

The Sun | Monday, October 1, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 7 NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) „ Marcus Mariota hit Corey Davis with a 10-yard touchdown pass just before the end of overtime, and the Tennessee Titans beat the Philadelphia Eagles 26-23 on Sunday for their best start since 2013. The Titans trailed by 14 in the third quarter before rallying for the lead. They also trailed 23-20 in overtime before coming back again behind Mariota, who in his “rst start since being knocked out of the season opener with an injured elbow threw for 344 yards and two touchdowns while also running for a score. On the game-winning drive, the Titans converted three fourth downs, one by penalty. Mariota hit Taywan Taylor with a 19-yarder on fourthand-15, and Mariota found a wide-open Dion Lewis on fourth-and-2 for a 17-yard gain. Facing third-and-goal and the clock running out, Mariota found Davis for the receivers “rst TD catch in the regular season.Raiders 45, Browns 42, OTOAKLAND, Calif. (AP) „ Derek Carr threw four TD passes and a game-tying 2-point conversion with 30 seconds left in regulation to set up Matt McGranes 29-yard “eld goal in overtime that gave Oakland its “rst win since Jon Grudens return as coach. McGrane missed a 50-yard “eld goal on the opening possession of overtime before Carr drove the Raiders (1-3) back down the “eld again after a defensive stop for the game winner with 1:46 left in the period. The “eld goal dealt the Browns (1-2-1) another tough loss as they blew a 14-point lead in the second half and then allowed to get the game-tying TD and 2-point conversion in the “nal seconds of regulation to spoil Baker May“elds NFL starting debut.Cowboys 26, Lions 24ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) „ Brett Maher kicked a 38-yard “eld goal as time expired, lifting Dallas over Detroit. Mahers fourth “eld goal was set up by Dak Prescotts 34-yard completion to running back Ezekiel Elliott on a deep throw after Matthew Stafford had put the Lions in front with a 38-yard touchdown to Golden Tate, their second TD connection of the day. Elliott had 240 all-purpose yards, with 152 yards rushing and 88 receiving. The best offensive day of the season for a previously struggling Dallas offense spoiled Staffords homecoming again, with his third straight loss at the home of the Cowboys (2-2). The former Dallasarea high school star threw for 307 yards. Trailing 20-10, Stafford led the Lions (1-3) 75 yards to rookie Kerryon Johnsons “rst career touchdown, an 8-yard run that started a back-andforth “nal quarter.Bengals 37, Falcons 36ATLANTA (AP) „ Andy Dalton threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Green with 7 seconds remaining, lifting Cincinnati over Atlanta. Dalton moved the Bengals 75 yards in about four minutes. He completed two passes on fourth down to Tyler Boyd, who had 11 catches for 100 yards, to keep the drive alive. Green, the former University of Georgia star making his “rst return to the state of Georgia, made a diving catch in the right side of the end zone to cap the drive. He had four catches for 78 yards. Giovani Bernard ran for 69 yards and two touchdowns for Cincinnati (3-1). Matt Ryan continued his resurgence by throwing three scoring passes, including two to rookie Calvin Ridley, for the Falcons. As was the case last week, when he had his “rst career game with “ve touchdown passes in a loss to New Orleans, Ryan had too little support from an injury-depleted defense.Texans 37, Colts 34, OTINDIANAPOLIS (AP) „ Kaimi Fairbairn took advantage of his second chance on a 37-yard “eld goal attempt, making it as time expired in overtime to give Houston a victory over Indianapolis. He had missed the “rst kick wide left „ just after Indy called timeout. Houston (1-3) ended the leagues losing streak at nine games with its “rst victory since Nov. 19. The Colts threw an incomplete pass on fourthand-4 from their 43, giving the ball back to Houston with 24 seconds to go. Deshaun Watson then connected with DeAndre Hopkins on a 24-yard pass to set up the winning kick. Its the third time in four weeks Indy (1-3) has come up short in the closing minutes. The loss spoiled Adam Vinatieris record-breaking day. The 45-year-old kicker became the leagues career leader in “eld goals when he made a 42-yarder with 2 seconds left in the “rst half and he extended the mark to 567 with a 44-yarder to give the Colts a 34-31 lead in overtime. But Fairbairn tied the score with a 29-yard kick and won it with the 37-yarder.Seahawks 20, Cardinals 17GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) „ Sebastian Janikowski, who had missed twice earlier in the game, kicked a 52-yard “eld goal as time expired to give Seattle a victory over Arizona and spoil the debut of Cardinals rookie Josh Rosen as the starting quarterback. The Seahawks (2-2) mounted their winning drive after Phil Dawson missed a 45-yard “eld goal that would have given the lead to Arizona (0-4) with 1:50 to play.Saints 33, Giants 18EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) „ Alvin Kamara ran for three second-half touchdowns and New Orleans defense stepped out of Drew Brees shadow in a victory over New York. Wil Lutz matched his career high with four “eld goals as the Saints (3-1) built a 12-7 halftime lead. Kamara broke the game open with scoring runs of 9, 4 and 49 yards to ice New Orleans third straight win and send New York to its third loss in four games. Kamara had 134 on 19 carries. If there was a surprise, it was the Saints defense, which came in ranked 30th in the league. After giving up a 2-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning to Sterling Shepard on the Giants opening drive, New Orleans limited New York to a 33-yard “eld goal by Aldrick Rosas in the third quarter and a late 1-yard TD run by Saquon Barkley, followed by a 2-point conversion pass from Manning to Shepard. The anticipated slugfest between the 39-yard old Brees and the 37-yearold Manning never materialized. Brees, who came in needing 418 yards passing to break Peyton Mannings NFL career mark, “nished 18 of 32 for 217 yards. Manning was 31 of 41 for 255 yards as the Giants (1-3) “nished with just 299 total yards.Packers 22, Bills 0GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) „ Aaron Rodgers and Jimmy Graham connected on their “rst touchdown pass of the year, and Green Bay put together its most complete defensive effort of the season in a win over the Buffalo. Aaron Jones added 65 yards and a score on 11 carries for the Packers, who slowed in the second half after a fast start on offense. The defense didnt let up against the Bills. Green Bay (2-1-1) posted its “rst shutout since a 9-0 win over the Jets in 2010. Rookie quarterback Josh Allen accounted for three turnovers, including two interceptions and a fumble late in the fourth quarter that stood on review. He was 16 of 33 for 151 yards. The Bills had a much tougher time on the road in the NFC North, a week after a stunning win at heavily favored Minnesota. Buffalo did manage to force Rodgers to throw his “rst interception of the year. Rodgers also fumbled the ball away early in the fourth quarter after a sack by Taron Johnson. But a 16-0 lead at the half was more than enough cushion against Buffalos feeble offense. Even the return of running back LeSean McCoy, who missed a game because of a rib injury, didnt help the Bills (1-3).Chargers 29, 49ers 27CARSON, Calif. (AP) „ Philip Rivers threw for three touchdowns, Melvin Gordon rushed for 104 yards and Los Angeles rallied for a victory over San Francisco. Caleb Sturgis had three “eld goals, including one from 21 yards with 7:41 left that gave the Chargers (2-2) the lead, but he had an eventful day with two missed extra points. Rivers was 25 of 39 for 250 yards. Gordon had his “rst 100-yard game since last Oct. 29 against New England. Gordon and Austin Ekeler each caught touchdowns, the “rst time the Chargers have had two running backs catch touchdowns since Jessie Hester and Darren Sproles did it on Nov. 22, 2010, against Denver. C.J. Beathard, who got the start for San Francisco (1-3) after Jimmy Garoppolos season-ending knee injury, was 23 of 37 for 298 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.BEARS 48, BUCS 10Tampa Bay 0 3 0 7 „ 10 Chicago 14 24 7 3 „ 48 First Quarter Chi„T.Burton 39 pass from Trubisky (Parkey kick), 12:20.

Page 8 SP www.yoursun.com The Sun | Monday, October 1, 2018 and momentum, and it seemed to work when the Americans won at Hazeltine in 2016. Now, maybe its back to the drawing board. Lets be honest „ the European side played some exquisite golf,Ž Mickelson said. The same couldnt be said for Mickelson or Woods, two giants of their generation, both with losing records in the Ryder Cup. Mickelson didnt even play on Saturday and lost his matches on Friday and Sunday. He started the week by setting a record with his 12th appearance in the Ryder Cup, and it ended with 22 losses, a record by either side. At 48, he might not get another chance. I did not play well this year,Ž Mickelson said. This could very well, realistically, be my last one.Ž Woods was 0-4, the “rst time in eight Ryder Cups that he failed to contribute a single point. This was one week after he capped a personal comeback following four back surgeries by winning the Tour Championship, the 80th of his PGA Tour career and “rst in more than “ve years. But he looked like he lacked energy on the course and certainly in his speech over the last two days. Its disappointing because I went 0-4, and thats four points to the European team,Ž he said. And Im one of the contributing factors to why we lost the cup, and its not a lot of fun. Its frustrating because I thought we were all playing pretty well, and I just didnt perform at the level that I had been playing, and just got behind early in the matches and never got back.Ž But this was more about the Europeans as a team, and they were tougher than ever on a course they know well. Trailing 10-6 going into the “nal day of singles, the Americans needed to put red points on the board early to build momentum. It never happened. Justin Thomas won the leadoff match over Rory McIlroy but not until the 18th hole. Webb Simpson and Tony Finau, the lone bright spot among the wild-card picks for Furyk, won easily. Behind them, Woods was hanging tough against Jon Rahm and Dustin Johnson started to pull ahead of Ian Poulter. Theres always a moment where it looks like a spark of light,Ž Furyk said. When it was there for us, Europe played really well.Ž It wasnt there long. Rahm won two straight holes with pars to seize control. Johnson hit into the water on the 13th during a four-hole slide that took him from 1 up to 2 down, a match Poulter wound up winning.RYDERFROM PAGE 1 TODAY / TONIGHTVariable clouds, a t-storm Mainly clear and humidHIGH 93 LOW 7555% chance of rain 10% chance of rainPartly sunny, humid; a stray p.m. t-storm90 / 7440% chance of rain TUESDAY GULF WATER TEMPERATUREMostly sunny, a t-storm around in the p.m.91 / 7340% chance of rain WEDNESDAYPartly sunny, showers around in the p.m.91 / 7360% chance of rain THURSDAYMostly sunny with a thunderstorm possible91 / 7130% chance of rain SATURDAYPartly sunny and humid92 / 7225% chance of rain FRIDAY 1 3 6 6 2 1 Trees Grass Weeds Moldsabsentlowmoderatehighvery highabsent 050100150200300500 320-50 Good; 51-100 Moderate; 101-150 Unhealthy for sensitive groups; 151-200 Unhealthy; 201-300 Very Unhealthy; 301-500 HazardousSource : scgov.net 8 a.m. 10 a.m. Noon 2 p.m. 4 p.m. 6 p.m.The higher the AccuWeather.com UV Index’ number, the greater the need for eye and skin protection. 0-2 Low; 3-5 Moderate; 6-7 High; 8-10 Very High; 11+ Extreme.RealFeel Temperature is the exclusive AccuWeather. com composite of effective temperature based on eight weather factors.UV Index and RealFeel Temperature TodayPrecipitation (in inches)Precipitation (in inches)Precipitation (in inches)Temperatures Temperatures TemperaturesSource : National Allergy Bureau CONDITIONS TODAY AIR QUALITY INDEX POLLEN INDEX WEATHER HISTORY WEATHER TRIVIA’ PORT CHARLOTTE SEBRING VENICE8289991009293Air Quality Index readings as of SundayMain pollutant: ParticulatesPunta Gorda through 2 p.m. Sunday Sebring through 2 p.m. Sunday Venice through 2 p.m. Sunday24 hours through 2 p.m. Sun. 0.00Ž Month to date 7.57Ž Normal month to date 6.84Ž Year to date 56.27Ž Normal year to date 44.03Ž Record 1.03Ž (1995) 24 hours through 2 p.m. Sun. 0.00Ž 24 hours through 2 p.m. Sun. 0.00Ž Month to date 5.94Ž Normal month to date 6.93Ž Year to date 38.76Ž Normal year to date 42.77Ž Record 1.03Ž (1928) High/Low 92/75 Normal High/Low 89/71 Record High 95 (1986) Record Low 64 (1967) High/Low 90/76 High/Low 91/75 Normal High/Low 88/71 Record High 97 (1988) Record Low 64 (1967)Pollen Index readings as of Sunday MONTHLY RAINFALLMonth 2018 2017 Avg.

The longtime USA Basketball teammates had accomplished another piece of history together. The pair has been a key part of all three titles and hasnt lost a World Cup game in nearly 12 years, including Sunday nights 73-56 win over Australia in the gold medal game. It means a lot. I was saying yesterday in the press conference that theres this misconception out there that this is easy for us,Ž Bird said. I get it, because the scores can say that at times. But this isnt easy. Were thrown together and need to “gure it out on the ”y. We need to peak at the right time. Its extremely satisfying when we get it done.Ž Bird now is the most decorated athlete in World Cup history, winning four gold medals and one bronze. I dont know if I can put it in perspective because Im still in it,Ž Bird said. The victory gave the U.S. 10 World Cup gold medals and was the 22nd win in a row overall for the Americans dating back to the bronze medal game in 2006. That was the same year that Australia won its only World Cup title. The Americans lost to Russia in the semi“nals and havent lost since in the World Cup or Olympics. The win also made Dawn Staley the “rst person ever to win a World Cup title as a player, assistant and head coach. The U.S. didnt have its entire team together until a few days before the tournament started as Bird, Breanna Stewart and Jewell Loyd were winning the WNBA championship with the Seattle Storm. Stewart, who was the WNBA regular season and postseason MVP, added the MVP of the World Cup to her resume after scoring 10 points in the championship game. Its been an incredible few months, thats for sure,Ž Stewart said. The biggest thing about it all is its all focused on the team and having the team win.ŽGolden girls: US wins 3rd straight womens hoops World Cup AP PHOTOSue Bird of the United States, left, lifts the trophy as Queen Letizia applauds after winning the Womens Basketball World Cup “nal match. By STEPHEN WHYNOAP HOCKEY WRITERT.J. Oshie stepped to the microphone and apologized for his voice. It was hoarse from days and nights of celebrating the Washington Capitals Stanley Cup triumph and fans now had gathered on the National Mall after the championship parade. Oshie had enough left to start a chant among the tens of thousands of fans: Back-to-back! Back-to-back!Ž With a full voice and the shortest summer of his career behind him, Oshie hasnt changed his tune that the Capitals can repeat. If we continue with our style of play and everyone chips in like we did, I think we have a really good chance,Ž Oshie said. I know the odds are against us, we had a short summer, everyone else has a couple more months of training on them. But we still have all the pieces.Ž Even though the Pittsburgh Penguins went back-to-back in 2016 and 2017, the odds are against Washington repeating despite bringing back an almost identical roster from last years run. What the Capitals showed teams gunning for the Cup in 2019 is how a championship window is never closed as long you make the playoffs. The Penguins Boston and Tampa Bay in the Eastern Conference, and the San Jose Sharks and St. Louis Blues in the West, take note: Previous postseason success and failure is little indication of whatll happen next. They dont give up after a lot of tough years,Ž Blues winger Vladimir Tarasenko said of the Caps. They work on their game, play hard and “nally reach their goal. This is really good example for us. I think thats what we need to try to do.Ž The race to the playoffs begins with the Capitals and Vegas Golden Knights not favored to make it back to the Cup Final, Sidney Crosby ready to take back the trophy he has hoisted three times, Connor McDavid looking to lift the Oilers back into contention and an in”ux of talent in the West again threatening to make this spring another heavyweight rumble. Tampa Bay kept its deep core together, Boston is hoping for better health and Pittsburgh is loading up for another shot with Crosby eager to one-up career rival Alex Ovechkin again.Teams load up to challenge Caps WOMENS BASKETBALL: World Cup NHL: Preview adno=3616874-1
