HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN VOL. 99 | NO. 281 | $1.00 YOUR HOMETOWN NEWSPAPER SINCE 1919 An Edition Of The Sun Monday, October 8, 2018 Highlands Health ................ B1 Local Sports ...................... A7 Classifieds ...................... B4-7 Comics ................ NEWS WIRE Viewpoints ....................... A5 Weather .................... SPORTSGood morning To Cher Kole Thanks for reading! TheNewsSunBy MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ Home cooking can warm the belly and the heart, but it also starts most of the home “res in the U.S., according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA. In fact, cooking was responsible for over 50 percent of the estimated 364,300 residential house “res in 2016, FEMA stated. FEMA encourages people to wear shortsleeved shirts or tight-“tting sleeves when cooking, so that their sleeves will not dangle onto the stove or into hot pots. People should also keep children and pets three feet away from any cooking surface, such as a stove or grill. When carrying hot food or liquids to the table, children should also maintain their distance to prevent injuries. Parents or caregivers should never carry a child on their hips while preparing food. When cooking, try to stay off the cell phone and turn off the TV,Ž Assistant Fire Chief for the City of Sebring Dirk Riley said. Dont try to multi-task while cooking. Most of the “res across the country start in the kitchen, and the same scenario plays out here too. The majority of “res of “res we go to are kitchen “res. When you start getting a whole lot of things going on, its easy to get distracted,Ž Riley said. Most “res are started by unattended cooking. People start frying something, get distracted and walk away.Ž If people must leave the kitchen, then they should turn off the stove. People who are sleepy or have consumed alcohol should not use the stove or the oven. Items, such as oven mitts, wooden utensils and food packaging, that are too near the stove may catch on “re. Clear an area around the stove and do not place items, other than pots or pans, on the cooking surface. The National Fire Prevention Association offers these tips for people who decide to “ght small grease “res. Smother the ”ames by sliding a lid over the pot and turning off the burner. For an oven “re, turn off the oven and leave the door closed. If the ”ames escape the oven door, get out of the house and call 9-1-1. If you have any doubt about “ghting the “re, just get out! Another main cause of “res is careless smoking,Ž Riley said. People ”ick their cigarette butts off the front porch and it starts a “re, or people fall asleep while smoking.Ž We always stress to people to have smoke detectors, have a plan of escape and limit distractions while cooking.Ž Riley said. Fire safety plans are awesome. What we want to do is to account for everyone. Its important to have a meeting place. When we get there, we ask, Is everyone here? If we dont have everyone accounted for, we have to go into search and rescue mode, and our “re suppression efforts are delayed,Ž Riley said. Fire safety plans and safe cooking are important, because the City of Sebring had 4,148 Fire prevention starts at homeKitchen fires are the No. 1 cause TIPS FROM CITY OF SEBRING ASSISTANT FIRE CHIEF DIRK RILEY Time change is coming up. Its the perfect time to change those smoke detector batteries. Have an emergency plan with a meeting place. Practice that plan. Talking through it is good but practicing it is great. Do not multitask when cooking or bathing children. Let the phone go to voicemail; solicitors always call back. Turn pot and pan handles back so young, aspiring chefs dont try to grab them to see whats cooking. Practice fire safety with your children. Never play with a lighter or matches. Keep the lighters and matches put away. By KIM LEATHERMAN STAFF WRITERLAKE PLACID „ The Highway Park Neighborhood Council is pleased with the progress of the Veterans Memorial. The project that has been years in the making has progressed by leaps and bounds and is nearing completion. The Memorial is located at 1325 U.S. 27 S. and sits on land donated by Juanita Hawthorne and her family. A concrete block curved wall has been erected behind the fountain and other statuary and is having a smooth stucco “nish on it. Once that has cured, the neighborhood council will put up the letters that will spell out what the wall is. Within the wall are three ”ags, a landscaped area with a fountain and a Battle“eld Cross statue. The entire area is set under the watchful eyes of three bald eagles. Council President Evelyn Colon said there will be insignia from “ve branches of the military on the Veterans Memorial a step closer to completion KIM LEATHERMAN/STAFFThe Veterans Memorial at Highway Park is nearly complete. By INGRID UTECHCORRESPONDENTSEBRING „ Can Amtrak bring back even a little of the glamour of rail travel from bygone days with the two-phase renovation it is undertaking at the train station in Sebring? The goal sounds like a simple one: to bring a historic building into compliance with the Department of Transportation Accessibility Standards for the disabled. But the renovations required to meet this goal are so extensive that not only disabled passengers but all passengers will bene“t and some might even become a bit nostalgic. Prior to the initiation of any renovations, Amtrak had to obtain approval of the design work from the Sebring Community Redevelopment Agency. Plans also had to be reviewed by the Sebring Historic Preservation Commission and by the State Historic Preservation Of“ce to ensure the historic integrity of the station would be retained. The Sebring train station, with its Mediterranean Revival style architecture, stuccoed walls, red barrel tile roof, round arch doorways and windows, stepped parapet and decorative terra cotta, was constructed in 1924 by the Seaboard Airline Railway.

By PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ Mellanie Williams said it took about a year to listen to two conversations without it bothering her. Now she cant shut it off. At dinner two weeks ago, the supervisor with Highlands County Central Dispatch involuntarily started hearing a conversation from an adjacent table „ comprehending every word „ while in conversation at her table. She said new 911 dispatcher recruits usually learn in a year, too. It depends on the person,Ž Williams said. She and other “rst responders told of their duties and the need to grow their ranks at Saturdays First Responder Showcase at the Criminal Justice Academy and Fire Sciences Department at South Florida State College. It was hosted by both the college and the Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce. Melissa Kuehnle, director of Institutional Communications for SFSC, said scheduled demonstrations included the Avon Park Correctional Institutions Designated Armed Response Team (DART), the Sheriffs Of“ce Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team, the bomb squadŽ from the Florida Bureau of Fire, Arson & Explosives Investigations, Highlands County 911 Central Dispatch and the criminal justice, emergency medical and “re“ghting training programs.

They had to deal with trillions of mosquitoes and ”ies, wild cats and panthers. They had to grow their own food and hunt and “sh to supply the familys needs. This is the womans side of pioneer life. Few women had iron cooking stoves. Almost all the women cooked on socalled scaffold stoves in detached kitchensŽ at the rear of their homes. These stoves were crude affairs. One was constructed by building a frame of pine logs about three feet high and four feet square. Inside this frame, and on top of it, sand was poured. The logs were covered on the outside with clay or marl so they would not burn. The working “re was built on top of the sand. Pine lighter-woodŽ splinters, rich in turpentine, were used in starting the “res. Once started the “res were fed with hardwood which burned long and gave out intense heat. A few of the pioneers boasted of having iron grills for their scaffold stoves on which meat could be broiled. But most of the women placed skillets and Dutch ovens in the hot embers. Both types of utensils had iron legs about four inches long. Around and between these legs women would heap glowing embers. Descendants of the pioneers still get enthused over the delicious meals their grandmothers prepared for them. One thing the pioneers rarely had was good butter„that is, fresh butter. Many had milk cows and churns and made butter occasionally. But to keep butter fresh in this climate, without ice, was impossible. However, the women did the best they could after churning, they put the butter in a wooden bucket and buried it in a shady spot in wet sand, and kept moist cloths on top of it. But in no time the butter would become rancid. This was no particular hardship to the pioneer. In fact, many of them became so used to rancid butter that they insisted fresh butter did not have any ”avor. And they would not touch it until it became ripe.Ž For many years, the pioneers had to make their own soap by leaching the ashes of burned hickory logs and that took both time and skill. With both grease and lye ready, the pioneer women then proceeded to make their own soap and it was a long and tiresome process. But the soap “nally was made and while it did not smell like perfume, it got rid of the dirt. Women had few fancy clothesŽ to wash and iron. All that a man neededŽ said one old timer was a hickory shirt, a pair of dungarees and brogans for his feet.Ž For special doings, a man had a black suit which would last him 10 or 15 years. For the women, a few calico dresses and a dress for Sunday best were almost all they wanted. As for the children well, they wore almost anything and few of them had any shoes until they reached their teens.Ž Not many pioneers had money to buy clothes regardless of the familys needs. Many settlers had no money at all. This was not because they were shiftless or that the land was poor. The trouble was the pioneers could not get good prices for their products. Often they could not sell at any price. More often than not had to barter their products for the things they could not supply themselves; cloth, shoes, tobacco, spices, coffee, guns and ammunition, farm implements, and all the other luxuriesŽ and necessities every family needed. Because of its geographical location, Tampa became the bartering and shopping center for the west coast as well as Central Florida. From Donald B.

Part 2HISTORICALLY SPEAKINGElaine Levey emergency calls in 2017. Making a home escape plan is not complicated. Draw a simple map of the home showing all windows and doors, and talk with everyone in the home about how to escape. Ideally, there should be two ways of escape for every room. Make sure all doors and windows open easily so that people can actually use them to leave the home. Everyone should practice the plan at least twice a year and meet up at a designated meeting place, such as a tree, light pole of mail box. The plan should be practiced at night and during the day. Children should practice escaping the house through different doors or windows, and they should be taught how to escape on their own in case parents are not able to help them.FIREFROM PAGE 1A QUIT YOUR WAY Qui ng tobacco isnt easy.

Dispatchers have to take information from a victim/caller and monitor radio traf“ c, while also typing notes. Once they learn it, she said, its dif“ cult to shut off.Ž Smith has six open positions in the 911 dispatch centers two 12-hour shifts. Ideally, shed like to have eight or nine people per shift. Sgt. Vonnie Hoskins, over recruitment for APCI, said shes always looking to “ ll team positions on four DART units, split between two 12-hour shifts. John Brook, head of Security at APCI, said the response teams have lethal and less-thanlethalŽ weapons and vary tactics depending on the situation at hand. Curtis CurtŽ Ivy, Criminal Justice Academy director, said he has 28 in the law enforcement program right now, with another eight in corrections. Ivy said 911 training requires much the same as law enforcement: High school graduates age 19 or older with no felony convictions, domestic violence or dishonorable military discharges. Steve Ashworth, director of Fire Sciences and EMS training, said he has 63 students, with 18 training as “ re“ ghters, 27 as emergency medical technicians and 18 as paramedics. He expects to see another 20 paramedics join the program in January, 2019. Enrollment tripled with the advent of the “ re program,Ž Ashworth said. Along with 25 adjunct “ re instructors and two full-time EMS instructors is Fire Services Coordinator Paul Shannon, a captain with Polk County Fire & Rescue. Shannon said the “ re program has two old “ re engines „ 12-22 years „ both service compliant. They could roll to a “ re. Trainees are still learning. They demonstrated how to use a “ re hose to cool a propane tank whose pressure relief valve has blown open and ignited. Cooling it hopefully will prevent an explosion, Shannon said. They also showed how quickly they can get into full bunker gear, and let children help them man hoses „ to knock down traf“ c cones. The SWAT Team demonstrated rappelling skills. The team was late, as was the bomb squad from Floridas Bureau of Fire, Arson & Explosives Investigations, because of a report gun“ re earlier that morning in Avon Park. Sheriff Paul Blackman, who arrived with the SWAT Team, said they found subjects pretending to still be asleep behind closed doors of a house. SWAT member Sgt. Mike Delaney demonstrated a tie-off,Ž freeing up his hands and swinging mid-air. SWAT member Sgt. Wayne Gunn did an inverted drop, turning to descend head “ rst. Its useful to sneak up on windows, said SWAT Team Leader Capt. Kenny Johnson. Kathy Fluharty, Human Resources administrator for the Sheriffs Of“ ce, said she, Crime Prevention Specialist Nell Hays and Sgt. Kimberly Gunn saw a lot of people asking about law enforcement certi“ cation. Later that morning, Detective Monty Taylor and K9 Oregon demonstrated the dogs ability to locate explosives hidden in a backpack. It took just a few minutes. Law Enforcement Major Brandon Ball also introduced the teams two robots: Johnny 5Ž and Boots.Ž Boots has been shot seven times,Ž Ball said, pointing to a Order of the Purple Heart sticker on its camera case. The robots are excellent climbers and shooters, Ball said, and have aided in negotiation: Bringing pizza, cigarettes and beer to barricaded subjects. Most often, they just end situations, he said. Theyre very intimidating in your bedroom at two in the morning,Ž Ball said.SHOWCASEFROM PAGE 1A Highlands County Sheri s O ce Special Weapons and Tactics Team member Sgt.

Readers may also email Letters to the Editor to Ocala Star-Banner on a study examining how teacher-friendly states are: One of the problems with studiesŽ is the statistics they are built upon. There are many ways a numberŽ can be turned on its side or upside down. It was Mark Twain who said there are lies, damn lies and then there are statistics. A recent study took a look at what it calls the best and worst states for teachers. Its a complex matrix „ too much to fully explain here. The study launches from this viewpoint: Education jobs are among the lowest-paying occupations requiring a bachelors degree, and teacher salaries fail to keep up with in”ation. At the same time, demands on student achievement continue to rise. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, 1 in 5 teachers leave their jobs before the end of the “rst year, transferring to other schools or jettisoning the profession entirely, feeling overwhelmed, ineffective and unsupported.Ž Again, the matrix is complicated, combining weighted scores for nearly two dozen categories including average salaries, income growth potential, tenure predictions, quality of the local school system, pupil-teacher ratios, public school spending per student, teacher effectiveness requirements, teacher turnover, average commute (important here as affordable workforce housing continues to decline), prevalence of childhood disadvantage, average teacher pension, share of uncerti“ed teachers and more. The bottom line is Florida ranks 45th out of the 50 states plus the District of Columbia. As a teacher-friendly state, Florida scored (1 = best, 25 = average): € 25th … Average Starting Salary for Teachers (Adjusted for Cost of Living) € 46th … Average Salary for Teachers (Adjusted for Cost of Living) € 26th … Quality of School System € 30th … Pupil-Teacher Ratio € 41st … Public-School Spending per Student € 35th … Teachers Income Growth Potential € 37th … 10-Year Change in Teacher Salaries Granted, there are other quali“ers. The study says nothing about mild winters, sunny summers, beaches, transportation, taxation, cost of living or any number of quality of life issues that would likely make Floridas numbers much stronger. But, if the state of Florida is genuinely serious about raising academic performance, the study might include some thinking points „ if not talking points. We can look at the path to excellence in education in many ways but, from where we sit, none get there without excellent teachers. We dont want to politicize this issue, but its dif“cult not to. Neither Rep. Ron DeSantis nor Mayor Andrew Gillums political rhetoric are anything but, well, rhetoric. Gillums vow to pay Florida teachers $50,000 is a pipe dream, considering the Republican makeup of the Legislature. DeSantis will end the apparent monopoly of public schools in the state and is fully on board to replace it with a monopoly of charter schools. And neither seems ready to talk about the biggest threat to education we have in Florida „ legislative meddling/muddling in classroom creativity and letting teachers teach. Theres the yin and the yang of the bluster „ but neither candidate is seriously looking for answers for what ails us. Meanwhile, we face an uphill battle to keep competent teachers in our schools with 45 states apparently making the profession more appealing. Whatever we think of the statistics, can we agree we have some serious work ahead?Florida fails the teacher testAt last we all now knowThe Democrats just lost the coming election for they truly revealed themselves to the country and the world just how deceitfully crafty they are in perpetuating continuously unfounded allegations of a dirty deed. Yes, we now all know the Democrats have earned and sustained the grand title of dirty Democrats. Now, who will vote for the dirty Democrats? Not me. Never could, never will. Just too much dirt.Ralph Bell Lake PlacidGod given rights and KavanaughThomas Jefferson said there should be a separation of church and state. The U.S. Supreme Court doesnt make laws or take away God given rights. As to abortion and gay marriage, a law was enacted by a legislature the the court ruled on that law. As to Kavanaugh, he started the session in a combative introduction as opposed to Dr. Ford. So now people question his temperament to be a Supreme Court judge. Of course the session is full of partisanship as past nominations have been. What did you expect after the Republicans left an open seat on the court for 10 months. The best solution may be to not have lifetime appointments to the court. What would it take to limit congressman to 12 years and Supreme Court justices to 15 years?David Molloy SebringEliminate U.S. 27 turn osI was loading my car at Publix, when I heard a car crash and observed the roll over of a Ford Taurus. I believe it is now time to eliminate the turn offs on U.S. 27. With snowbirds returning, it has become way too dangerous for everyone. Snowbirds have a habit of using them to make a U-turn on U.S. 27. They pull out into oncoming traf“c slowly resulting in multiple car crashes every year. In addition, they drive very slowly in the passing lane resulting in frustrated drivers. Although this crash did not involve snowbirds, it is a warning for everyone of the upcoming season. My prayers are for the victims and families of the latest accident.Gerard Russo Lake PlacidSo, so wrongWe have a president who does not understand why the United Nations laughed at him. Boasting of his achievementsŽ like he was at one of his rallies, and blasting other countries in a speech that resembled to a new low. He refuses to admit Russia has had anything to do with election meddling as we come up to another election, and signs point to huge election vulnerability. He tweets endlessly, yet will not attend brie“ngs critical to our nation. He mocks and insults and speaks only to his base „ frenzied groups encouraged by his horrid behavior. I have never in my life see a president behave in such an unstatesman-like way. His lies read like a scroll. Its like weve all been shoved into an Alice in WonderlandŽ scene with him running around yelling off with their heads!!Ž The media is the enemy if they report truth. We have learned this selfmade business manŽ inherited huge sums of money from his father in convoluted tax schemes. We have not seen his tax returns. He keeps our heads spinning in a crazy shell game of diversion and slight of hand. This is not right. This is so, so wrong.Patricia Myers SebringYOUR VIEW Its not a great time to be a member of Congress. According to the latest Gallup poll, the congressional approval rate is currently just 19 percent, with 76 percent disapproving. Congress miserable showing surprises no one. After Election Day, campaign promises abruptly vanish, and are replaced by an agenda that voters would never have supported. Voters have their individual and well-founded gripes. But the re-election campaign of Kansas Republican Congressman Kevin Yoder re”ects an unusual degree of ”ip-”opping just weeks before the November 6. Yoder is running in Kansas competitive 3rd District which Hillary Clinton narrowly carried in 2016. In mid-July Yoder, who chairs the Homeland Security appropriations committee, pledged to provide $5 billion next year for President Trumps southwest border wall. President Trump, in turn, heartily endorsed Yoder. Just days later, however, Yoder teamed up with Democrats to support an amendment that would make it easier for asylum claimants to enter and stay in the U.S. The amendment passed on voice vote, and despite stinging criticism from the Trump administration, Yoder remained “rm, at least initially. But after Congress re-convened, Yoder walked back his support for looser asylum guidelines. Yoder, however, told McClatchy News that he will not remove an amendment that he sponsored, H.R. 392, the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act. The bill, also sponsored by Yoder, would eliminate per-country caps for employment-based green cards and raise per-country caps for family-based green cards. H.R. 392 would secure the vast majority of green cards for foreign nationals from countries that dominate the H-1B visa program, i.e., India and China. Yoders measure would thereby create more permanent competition for American science, technology, engineering and math workers (STEM) and thereby pressure Congress to raise the overall H-1B 85, 000 visa cap so that workers from other countries could get green cards. Yoder assured Indian lobbyists that Congress would pass a green card “x,Ž this year „ D.C. weasel-speak for make thing worse, in this case adding tens of thousands more H-1B visas. Should Yoders bill become law, those visas would displace or deny Americans professional jobs in tech, insurance, banking, hospitals, but would reward cheap labor employers like Microsoft, Amazon, and Google. In Yoders district, many of his constituents have already been displaced through the H-1B visa: in 2017 alone employers hired1,427 visas holders, Department of Laborcerti“ed and approved. Most are designated as Level 1 which the government de“nes as employees who perform routine tasks that require little if any judgement. Translated, low-skilled foreign nationals, mostly Indian, work in Yoders district, and with his blessing. Americans dont get a shot at those jobs. During the current 115th Congress, Yoder has consistently voted in favor of more employment-based visas for low and high-skilled workers. In 2017, Yoder co-sponsored the Small and Seasonal Business Relief Act to increase the number of low-skilled guest workers. Then, in 2018, Yoder voted in favor of the Omnibus Spending Bill to increase H-2B visas, and also voted for the Goodlatte-Ryan-Denham amnesty bill, H.R. 6136, that would have increased the number of green cards for overseas workers. Americans dont need to understand the H-1B minutiae to catch the drift. U.S. workers are being purposely, rampantly and permanently laid by foreign-born cheap labor. Yoders train-wreck H.R. 392 bill would escalate U.S. job displacement to historic and irreversible levels.

The outside curve or backside of the wall will have a plaque for all the armed services. This is not just for the veterans who live in Highway Park, it is for anyone who has served, who is serving and those who will serve,Ž Colon said. We make no distinction between those who served or will serve in the military. It doesnt matter what branch someone served in or their race; the memorial is here for whom honor is due.Ž There are a few more things to install in order to call the project complete. Inscribed paver stones will be placed around the memorial for a meaningful place to stroll. Anyone can purchase a paver stone and have it inscribed. Colon stressed that the honoree did not have to be a resident of Highway Park. Benches to sit and re”ect will be placed around the memorial as well. The Highway Park Neighborhood Council is a 501(C)3 non-pro“t, so donations are tax deductible We are registered with the Florida Department of Consumer Affairs,Ž Colon said. We are an open book. We have an excellent reputation that we have worked very hard on.Ž The projects price tag so far is about $15,000 and it is estimated to be about $20,000 by the completion date. Generous grants from Lowes, Keep Highway Park Beautiful, and services such as waived meter fees from the Town of Lake Placid and donated sod from A. Duda & Sons helped to fund the project. Project Lead, Dennis Crenshaw Sr., and volunteers such as Teddy Callahan, Elvis Kendrix and Arthur Scurry have donated their time, talents and resources to create the memorial. They often have people stop them and compliment them on the project when they are working on it. An unexpected positive effect of the memorial is the decrease in litter in the area of the memorial. Colon also said that there is an overwhelming sense of community pride that has been rekindled with this project.VETERANSFROM PAGE 1A KIM LEATHERMAN/STAFF The Veterans Memorial has taken two years to get this far. It has been funded by grants and donations.Amtrak took over operation and ownership of the station in 1971. The station was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places on March 16, 1990. In 1998, a historic preservation grant from the Florida Department of State and funds from Amtrak were used to stabilize the structure. Then, the City of Sebring led an $800,000 rehabilitation project. The station was rededicated during a ceremony on April 24, 1998. For the past 20 years, no further work has been done. Today, the station is showing its age, and the renovations are less about cosmetics and more about necessity. Phase I, which is complete, involved the addition of two handicapped parking spaces, the construction of a ramp from the parking lot to the entrance on the non-track (east) side of the station, and the modi“cation of doors to that entrance, so that they are powered with push button handicapped accessible switches. Also included in Phase I were interior renovations to the waiting room, restrooms, and ticket window to make them disabled accessible. Phase II, which will require more extensive work, is underway. Amtrak recently awarded a contract to En“eld Enterprises Inc., an established federal government contractor in Spring“eld, Massachusetts, to undertake Phase II. EEI has experience renovating train stations, including stations in Fayetteville, North Carolina, Spring“eld, Massachusetts, Westerly, Rhode Island, one in New Jersey, and two in California. The most visible Phase II activity will involve replacing the existing platform with a new 1,104 foot concrete platform, which will be 8 inches higher than the top of the track. Raising the platform will make it ADA compliant and much easier for able-bodied as well as disabled passengers to board and to exit the train. Phase II also calls for disassembling the outdoor shelters (freestanding wood canopies) that are on the track side of the platform and reconstructing them with new foundations. Structurally damaged wood will be replaced with the exact same type of wood as was used in the original, helping to keep with the stations historic look. Other canopy rehabilitation work will include new membrane roo“ng, replacement of damaged cast iron roof drain leaders, new under canopy light “xtures, and repainted/remounted historic wood signage at the canopy ends. A ramp from the parking lot to the elevated platform and emergency egress ramps at the north and south ends of the station also will be built. New platform lighting and metal railings on the track side of the station will be provided for additional safety. The entrance doors on the track side of the station will be modi“ed to make them handicap accessible. Last but not least, the roof will be replaced, except for the tiled portion, which will be kept intact. Tiles that are cracked or broken will be replaced with exactly the same type of tiles as the original ones. EEI will use local sub-contractors, except for the roo“ng, which will be undertaken by AP Construction LLC, in Lakeland,Ž EEI General Contractor David Heaton said. Estimated completion date for the entire renovation, according to Heaton, will be summer 2019. The Amtrak Corporate Communications Department would not disclose how the renovations are being funded and how much the renovations will cost. Two Northbound passenger trains and two Southbound passenger trains stop in Sebring each day. Amtrak has told EEI that its activities must not disrupt regular passenger train service, and EEI has agreed to provide passengers with a clear unobstructed path to trains, according to Heaton. Phase I and Phase II renovations do not include any work on the stations parking lot. However, preliminary design work for parking lot and storm water improvements is underway, according to Kimberly Woods, Amtrak Corporate Communications Department spokesperson. At one time, all train stations were treated the same. Today, Amtrak classi“es stations into one of four categories: Large, Medium, Caretaker and Shelter. The amount of service provided at the station is dependent in large part upon the amount of traf“c the station generates. Sebring is in the Caretaker category. The ridership at the station is under 20,000 annually and declining; the station is not served by other modes of transportation; the city is located is a low-density area and the station offers few amenities, except a waiting room, restrooms and a vending machine. As a Caretaker station, the facility is staffed by a part-time custodian hired by Amtrak who opens the station in the morning, comes back to close it at night, and is responsible for maintaining the restrooms and all public areas. But the station is unattended during the day, and tickets must be purchased by calling Amtrak or buying them online. Will the renovations make Amtrak treat the station differently? Exactly how the station will be staffed, once the renovations have been completed, has not yet been determined,Ž Woods said.TRAINFROM PAGE 1A INGRID UTECH/CORRESPONDENTRoof tiles at the Sebring train station show the wear and tear of the years.

PAGE 9 October 8, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B1 CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDESECTION BMonday, October 8, 2018 HIGHLANDS HEALTH Its hardly a secret that many foods today have non-sugar sweeteners added to them. As far as natural sweeteners go, stevia is the king. Its in a bazillion food products, many of which are aimed at people with diabetes or obesity. Powdered supplements and lozenges often contain stevia, its everywhere. Stevia is a plant-derived herb, so obviously there could be allergies. Maybe your throat itches or seizes up when sipping a stevia-sweetened drink or when you chew on sugar-free gum. Maybe you sneeze or your lips itch. Perhaps its a coughing “t or hives and a rash. Its all because of a very common allergen: ragweed. Are you allergic to ragweed? If you are, then you are also susceptible to sensitivities from stevia consumption. Before I discuss allergic symptoms, Id like to share the extraordinary medical bene“ts that stevia offers in case youre not allergic to it. Most people are not. Stevia helps with: diabetes, hypertension, kidney disease, pain and In”ammation, infections, and diarrhea. Stevia is 200 times sweeter than table sugar, contains almost no calories, and wont adversely affect your blood sugar when consumed. Thats why its an incredible herb for sweetening foods when youre on a diet, or if you are just health conscious. But the problem is the family tree. Stevia was born into the Asteraceae family, or Aster,Ž which essentially means that stevia is genetically kin to marigolds, daises, chrysanthemums, dandelion, lettuce, saf”ower, sun”ower, artemisia (wormwood), artichokes, endive, and, most importantly, ragweed. This is a botanical family that allergen-prone individuals need to stay away from. In fact, theres an estimated 23 million Americans who suffer from ragweed-triggered hay fever. Not all of those people are sensitive to stevia, or the other plants in the Aster family, but some of you are and may not have realized it until just now. Pollen from the ragweed and pollen from the stevia plant contain very similar proteins as part of their genetic make up. This means that theres cross-reactivity between them. Once the stevia protein passes through your gut, and gets absorbed by your bloodstream, it might get mistaken by your immune system and shot down! Your body might mistake it for the ragweed protein (because theyre so structurally similar) and then youre faced with miserable allergic symptoms. I have written a longer version of this article that features other natural sweeteners, as well as advice to help determine if youre truly allergic. Visit suzycohen. com and sign up for my free newsletter so I can email you this article along with precautions. In the meantime, keep track of symptoms that are suggestive of ragweed cross-reactivity such as throat, lip and mouth itching and swelling, hives, dizziness, coughing “ts, temporary shortness of breath, or throat pain. If you feel like youre sensitive, I recommend cutting out stevia from your diet until you get some answers and visiting a board-certi“ed immunologist for testing.The allergic connection between stevia and ragweedDEAR PHARMACISTSuzy Cohen SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNSEBRING „ In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the local non-pro“t Knotty Girl Loves, Inc. has teamed up with the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation to bring a clinical specialist to speak about breast health at the all womens networking group, Lunch Club Wednesday.

By SABRINA WHEATONCONTRIBUTED STORYJust a teaspoon is all the honey we need to sweeten our soothing, hot cup of chamomile tea. A little drizzle over biscuits or mixed with lemon are two more familiar ways weve frequently seen honey used. However, honey has many bene“ts that many of us havent ever considered, especially if the honey is local. When honey is created from local bees, those bees were exposed to our local plant life, and thus our population of pollen. Those of us who suffer from outdoor allergies could greatly bene“t from introducing honey into our daily diet. Ingesting that small amount of pollen could help our bodies build the immunities needed to “ght allergic reactions. Over time, our runny noses and itchy eyes are combated by introducing a little bit of honey daily into our tea, coffee, or raw.

Dr. Kenneth Davin Fine, a gastroenterologist, and creator of Oro-Intestinal Fitness Products ( and the Gluten/ Food Sensitivity Diagnostic Laboratory brought gluten sensitivity to the public consciousness more than 20 years ago. He says during those early years, gluten-sensitive patients usually experienced significant improvement in their health on a gluten-free dietŽ but his patients have told him in recent years they have seen fewer improvements. Products can now be labeled gluten free even if that food contains up to 20 parts per million of gluten,Ž Dr. Fine says. While that doesnt sound like a lot, a little gluten can go a long way in the reactions of the most active immune systems.Ž Gluten is a protein found in the cereal grains wheat, barley, rye, and oats. It is a mixture of proteins and causes illness in people with either celiac disease, when the immune reactions to gluten damage the intestinal tissues visible on a biopsy, or more commonly non-celiac gluten sensitivity. This happens when symptoms and intestinal dysfunction are present in the absence of such changes on a biopsy. Recent studies found that most (but not all) celiacs could eat gluten without resulting in damage to their small intestine. In his research, Dr. Fine has found that only about half of celiacs or non-celiac gluten sensitive patients can tolerate oats. He says gluten-free oatsŽ is a misnomer and may be responsible for symptoms experienced by people who think they are eating a gluten-free diet. Dr. Fine believes the gluten sensitivity epidemic is caused by: € A combination of greater immunoreactivity in most people stimulated by mainly environmental factors (stress, exposure to hormones in food, medicines, pollution, and possibly EMS from electronic devices). € The way many foods have been altered by producers so they can be manufactured in mass quantities more efficiently. € Widespread use of stomach acid-inhibiting medicines. € A general lack of breastfeeding in this country from 1955-1985 (when synthetic Gluten free isnt always what you think UC BERKELEY PHOTOMany products labeled gluten free contain traces of gluten.GLUTEN | 3B HONEY | 2B LUNCH | 2B

Being antibacterial and antimicrobial, honey has been known to treat wounds and even burns in emergency cases. Because of its highly viscous nature, it seals the wound and repels infection, helping wounds heal quicker and longer in cases when medicine wasnt readily available. This also extends to skin care. Being anti-in”ammatory and antibacterial, honey makes a good addition to the daily regimen of many people. It soothes the redness and in”ammation accompanied by blemishes and helps clear away the bacteria trapped beneath the skin. Honey can be applied via a homemade face mask or through buying a face wash. Check with your local honey vendor and ask what other natural products they may offer, such as face wash, deodorant or lip balm.

SFSC IS AN EQUAL ACCESS/EQUAL OPPORTUNITY INSTITUTIONBy NANCY DALEYOGA FOR LIFEYoga is natural for children as their mind and bodies are ”exible and able to ”ow into various poses. Many children in India learn Yoga very young as part of their daily life activities and maintain a lifelong practice that re-enforces self-acceptance and development of their natural abilities. In the Eastern cultural environment, children and adults can comfortably sit/eat and chat while in a deep squat. Their bodies are shaped by their practice. Introducing a Yoga practice to children at a very young age, accompanied by parents, awakens the family to unity, calmness and way to focus on positive energy and growth. Learning how to perform Yoga poses together, parents and children support each others growth and self-awareness, self-acceptance. As a childs body grows, parents can re-af“rm through a family Yoga practice, pro-active healthy breathing habits to reduce anxiety, and positive attitudes towards self, life and others. Yoga is non-competitive and teaches each person to grow from where they are, doing what the body is ready to do at different stages. As the family practices together, they grow in their own light of awareness supporting each other with praise and positive critical feedback. As the family unit ages together at different stages in their life process, Yoga teaches each person that they can always come into their own individual Yoga practice as a refuge from a chaotic world, simply by unrolling the Yoga mat or mentally doing so anywhere. Yoga travels inside of the individual. With all the swirl of schedules, activities, school, work, family chores and friends, a childs own inner re”ection may become blurred. Who am I? What is my identity/inner-talent? On the inward journey of Yoga, the focus is on awakening potential and talent from within. Parents can reinforce a childs self-image by practicing Yoga together and providing encouragement. Perhaps a special family Yoga Retreat can take place at a cabin in the woods, on the beach on a mild afternoon or with friends in the back yard or park enjoying the camaraderie of each other as all move forward with fun and laughter doing Yoga. Yoga is way to brighten young children and parents lives by reinforcing a positive, self-awareness of each others talents and participating in each others individual growth.Lets Practice: Downward DogŽWith everyone seated comfortably legs crossed or extended on a Yoga mat, begin by closing the eyes and everyone taking three deep breaths, inhaling/ exhaling slowly through the nose while picturing a beautiful scene. Next, “nd some pictures in a book of various Yoga poses. Yoga Magazine is a good source of poses performed by Yoga teachers/practitioners. Study the pose: Downward DogŽ to start. Next, elect a group leader for the practice and everyone study the Downward DogŽ picture. (It is better to study a picture of a posture in a book to support creative individual thinkingŽ rather than attempting to copy someone elses video interpretation). Bring your own self-awareness to the group. The group leader asks everyone to join in and together each one brings their own interpretation of the pose into the Practice. This is a new beginning for the family in their own self-created Yoga Retreat.Yoga: A family retreat adno=3616334-1 Dining with the Doctors For More Information or to RSVP Call (863) 385-0161 ext. 0725 S.

PAGE 11 October 8, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B3infant formula was falsely touted to be more healthy than breast milk). € Public health directives recommending that the public should eat mostly grains as part of the USDA food pyramid. € An evolution of agricultural practices leading to hybridization of grains to increase their gluten content, and more widespread use of herbicides and pesticides. Recently, there also has been a significant increase in the mass marketing of products said to assist the gut microbiome in digesting food. The microbiome is the genetic material of all the microbes „ bacteria, viruses, and fungi „ in the body. Dr. Fine says the best way to keep a healthy gut and microbiome is to eat the right foods. Researchers have sometimes detected a different microbiome in obese individuals compared to non-obese individuals; although this has attempted to be the blame for the obesity, it cannot be ruled out that their microbiome is different because they make different, and perhaps less healthful food choices,Ž Dr. Fine says. Other reasons for a poor microbiome are frequent exposure to antibiotics, the bactericidal chlorine added to public water, improper sleep, stress, and diets heavy in meat, cooked food (as opposed to raw vegetables/salads and fruit), and junk foodŽ and other sugar-laden foods. This is all typical of the modern lifestyle, which Fine says is a primary contributor to poor overall health If you really want to achieve a healthy body, you must have a healthy intestine and intestinal flora,Ž Dr. Fine says. And when it comes to immunologic food sensitivities, one must really be more restrictive of antigenic foods than was necessary years ago because of the progression of this immunologic epidemic.ŽGLUTENFROM PAGE 1B 114-115 Medical Center € Sebring, FL € 863-385-6655(Located behind Highlands Regional Hospital) M-Th 8 AM 5 PM € Fri 8 AM 1 PM € Most Insurance Accepted No Insurance?

B6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 8, 2018 Yes! The “ttingŽ is important. What is the “ttingŽ that I am referring to? It is the proper installation of a product. If you are getting married, then it is the tailoring that is going to make sure that your gown or tux “ts you perfectly. It will look perfect yet be comfortable enough for you to be in for many hours. How about your eye glasses ... they have to be “tŽ properly to ensure they are comfortable and you are looking through the proper part of the lens. Maybe you wear dentures or have dental implants ... those also need to be properly “t. If “t properly, you can still eat all the things you like to without pain. No matter what the product is that you are dealing with, you are spending your hardearned money on it and you want the very best results you can get ... right? So how about when you invest in better hearing? Part of what you are paying for is the expertise of your hearing health care provider. The person or practice that you choose to trust your better hearing with are being given the opportunity to improve your life ... To Hear Better Is To Live Better! So what should you expect to take place. You have had your hearing test. You had a thorough demonstration of technology and different styles of hearing aids that would work best for you ... you order your hearing aids ... now what? The next step: once the hearing aids have arrived is the “tting. You should allow at least and hour and a half, maybe a little more. Your “tting should involve more than showing you how to put in your hearing aids and change the batteries. During the “tting, many steps should be performed to ensure that the programming of your hearing aids are set appropriately. While you are wearing the hearing aids, calibration of the instruments and real ear measurement functions should be done to ensure exactly what the hearing aids are delivering into your ears. Then actual veri“cation and calculation of loud sounds to make sure they can never get uncomfortable ... and testing to make sure that sounds that are deemed softŽ are indeed audible to you with the hearing aids in. Feedback cancellation is set so that the instruments do not have annoying whistling in your ears. Another very important test that should always be completed is speech discrimination. This test should be done in quiet and also in noise. This test reveals how well you will understand speech in quiet and also in noise. It is important that you are tested in noise during the “ttingŽ of the hearing instruments so that the processors that control noise in your hearing aids can be adjusted appropriately for your speci“c hearing needs. Remember, during your hearing test we determined what your speech understanding capabilities would be with hearing aid ... therefore, it is now important to make sure that we are indeed delivering on those numbers. You may want your hearing aids to do everything automatically or would like some extra control with either a button, remote, or a smart phone. All of these will need to be set up and explained ... in detail. The hearing aids will need also need to physically fit properly and comfortably. Custom aids may need to be tapered or buffed on in the lab. The little ones with wires that go over the ears also need to be shaped and set to fit correctly. Your hearing aids will have the ability to talk, beep and/or make indicator sounds in your ears. These will also need to be demonstrated and set at comfortable levels so that they dont scare you or make you wreck your car when it says battery!Ž Your hearing aids are a computer. They are learning devices that record and specify the types of environments, speech signals and strength that are occurring. This is also set up at your fitting.Ž Hearing aids today may have Artificial Intelligence or AI and that allows the hearing aids to learn and adaptŽ to your needs. This adds a whole new segment to the fitting and follow-up care of your hearing aids. Your hearing aid fitting is not just walking into an office and picking up your instruments at a counter in a bag. It is not just being shown how to put them in and change the battery. Your fitting is a process. It is a journey that you will take with your hearing health care provider. Enjoy that journey. To Hear Better Is To Live Better. Roseann B.

THE NEWS WIRESTATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS Venom sets October record with $80M; Star Is Born soarsSee page 8 Monday, October 8, 2018 By MICHAEL HILL and BOB SALSBERGASSOCIATED PRESSSCHOHARIE, N.Y. „ A limousine loaded with revelers headed to a 30th birthday party blew a stop sign at the end of a highway and slammed into an SUV parked outside a store, killing all 18 people in the limo and two pedestrians in the deadliest U.S. transportation accident in almost a decade, of“ cials and relatives of the victims said Sunday. The collision turned a relaxed Saturday afternoon into chaos at an upstate New York spot popular with tourists taking in the fall foliage. Relatives said the limousine was carrying four sisters and their friends to a birthday celebration for the youngest. They did the responsible thing getting a limo so they wouldnt have to drive anywhere,Ž their aunt, Barbara Douglas, told reporters on Sunday. She did not want to name them publicly but added: They were wonderful girls. Theyd do anything for you and they were very close to each other and they loved their family.Ž The 2001 Ford Excursion limousine was traveling southwest on Route 30 in Schoharie, about 170 miles north of New York City around 2 p.m. when it failed to stop at a T-junction with state Route 30A, State Police First Deputy Superintendent Christopher Fiore said at a news conference in Latham, New York. It went across the road and hit an unoccupied SUV parked at the Apple Barrel Country Store, killing the limousine driver and 17 passengers, as well as two people outside the vehicle. The crash sounded like an explosion,Ž said Linda Riley, of nearby Schenectady, who was on a shopping trip with her sisters and had been in their parked car at the time at the store. When she got out of her vehicle, she saw a body on the ground, she said. People started screaming. The store manager, Jessica Kirby, told The New York Times that the limo was coming down a hill at probably over 60 mph.Ž Authorities said autopsies were being performed and didnt release names of victims or speculate on what caused the limo to run the stop sign. The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating.

By TRACY WILKINSONLOS ANGELES TIMES (TNS)WASHINGTON „ Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sunday that he had a productiveŽ meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, calling it another step forwardŽ in tortuous talks to dismantle the nations nuclear arsenal. Pompeo provided no details, but also said the meeting focused on preparations for a second summit between Kim and President Donald Trump. The “ rst, in June in Singapore, produced a vague declaration that has formed the basis for continuing, but “ tful, negotiations. There are many steps along the way and we took one of those today,Ž Pompeo said in Seoul in brief public comments alongside South Korean President Moon Jae-in. It was another step forward.Ž Trump, meanwhile, said on Twitter that he would look forward to seeing Chairman Kim again, in the near future.Ž Pompeo ” ew to Seoul after about four hours in Pyongyang that included lunch with Kim. He also went to Tokyo, and from Seoul was scheduled to continue to Beijing as he attempts to advise regional governments on his efforts and ensure support, or in the case of China, shore it up. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Pompeo and Kim re“ ned options for the location and date of that next summit.Ž Kim invited inspectors to visit the Punggye Ri nuclear test site to con“ rm that it has been irreversibly dismantled, Nauert said in a statement. But the statement made no mention of Yongbyon, North Koreas main nuclear facility. The South Korean government was encouraging the North to offer to dismantle part of Yongbyon, in exchange for the United States issuing a declaration ending the 1950-53 Korean War, as con“ dence-buildingŽ measures. The U.S., however, has been reluctant to issue such a declaration, concerned that could undermine its military presence in the region. The U.S.-North Korea dealings have not produced signi“ cant steps in disarming North Korea. Critics have said it is important for talks to produce more than statements of commitmentsŽ that are not backed by actions. And some experts wonder if Kim is willing to deal, or allow his people to deal, with anyone but Trump. Nauert, who was traveling with Pompeo, said he and Kim agreed to instruct their working-level teams to meet quickly to intensify discussions on the key remaining issues.ŽPompeo concludes pr oductive meeting with Kim Jong Un By MARK SHERMANASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ The moment conservatives have dreamed about for decades has arrived with Brett Kavanaugh joining the Supreme Court. But with it comes the shadow of a bitter con“ rmation “ ght that is likely to hang over the court as it takes on divisive issues, especially those dealing with politics and womens rights. With Kavanaugh taking the place of the more moderate Anthony Kennedy, conservatives should have a working majority of “ ve justices to restrict abortion rights, limit the use of race in college admissions and rein in federal regulators. The newly constituted court also might broaden gun rights, further relax campaign “ nance laws and halt the expansion of the rights of LGBT people, who three years ago won the right to marry nationwide with Kennedy in the majority. Yet Kavanaugh may have a hard time putting behind him the tumultuous con“ rmation process, which ended with the Senate voting 50-48 to con“ rm him Saturday, the narrowest margin of victory for a Supreme Court nominee in 137 years. In the public mind, there will always be this dark cloud hanging over the court, even if Kavanaugh is eventually embraced by all his colleagues on the court,Ž said Elizabeth Wydra, president of the liberal Constitutional Accountability Center. That cloud stems from allegations of sexual assault and other inappropriate behavior by Kavanaugh while he was in high school and college, along with his politically charged testimony that labeled the look into his past a political hit job by Democrats. Kavanaugh has forcefully denied any inappropriate behavior with women. He also acknowledged in a Wall Street Journal column that some of his testimony went too far, but did not apologize for anything he said. The bitter partisan “ ght over the con“ rmation could continue in another form if Democrats take control of the House after the November elections. Key House Democrats have said they would investigate Kavanaugh. In the meantime, the focus will be on the courts new majoritys willingness to take on controversial issues. A potential early test is two cases involving state efforts to strip public money from Planned Parenthood. The justices are considering appeals from Kansas and Louisiana. Lower courts have blocked the states from going forward. The court could announce Tuesday that it has rejected the appeals, if the justices voted that way in their private conference Friday. But they also could defer action to allow Kavanaugh to weigh in. It is far from certain that the court will move precipitously on this or any high-pro“ le issue. Its not going to be lost on anyone on the court that everybody is going to be watching the new court to see which issues they engage in,Ž said Paul Clement, solicitor general under President George W. Bush. The justices could look for cases that are more likely to produce consensus, including those about privacy protections in the digital age, Clement said.Supreme Court moves right, but how far, how fast?COURT | 4 LIMO | 4 D one.

Page 2 E/N/C The Sun | Monday, October 8, 2018Authorities look for man accused of kidnapping daughterSANFORD (AP) „ Authorities in Florida say a three-month-old girl was kidnapped by her father who hasnt had any contact with her since birth. The Sanford Police Department said they were searching for Tedrick Mazion after they say he took his daughter, Natori, from her mothers home early Sunday. Detectives say the infants mother tried to stop Mazion from taking the girl.Deputies say they fatally shot man who shot at themSTARKE (AP) „ Authorities in Florida say deputies fatally shot a man who “red at them. Jacksonville TV station WTLV reports that the man was fatally shot Sunday by deputies with the Bradford County Sheriffs Of“ce in Starke, a town in north Florida. The man wasnt immediately identi“ed. The TV station says the man had a mental illness and was off his medications. Deputies says the man walked out of a shed shooting at of“cers, prompting them to shoot back.Man sets fire to another homeless manOLDSMAR (AP) „ A Florida man is facing an attempted murder charge after police say he set “re to another homeless man during an argument at camp in a wooded area. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Of“ce on Saturday arrested 44-year-old Harold Rosenbaum at the camp in Oldsmar, Florida, along the Gulf Coast. Investigators say Rosenbaum intentionally set “re to 60-year-old James Heffernan using gas from a can after they got into an argument at the homeless camp. Investigators say Heffernan suffered burns on three-quarters of his body and was in critical condition Sunday. Another man, David Mahoney, burned his hands and feet trying to extinguish the “re. He was taken to a trauma center with non-life-threatening injuries. Rosenbaum was in jail on Sunday and couldnt be reached for comment.Man sues Disney, says false arrest during marriage proposalORLANDO (AP) „ A New York man who was arrested for getting into an altercation with a Walt Disney World worker just moments before he planned to propose to his “ance is suing the theme park resort, claiming he never touched the employee. Marc Rubin “led the lawsuit last month in state court in Orlando, Florida, alleging false arrest. The lawsuit says Rubin was scouting out a location in front of Cinderellas Castle in the Magic Kingdom to propose to his future wife three years ago. A Disney employee asked him to move back from the parade route. The Orlando Sentinel reports that the Disney worker told deputies that Rubin screamed and grabbed her, something he denies. Rubin pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct and was “ned $100 plus court costs. HEADLINES AROUND THE STATE By JOHN LEICESTER and GILLIAN WONGASSOCIATED PRESSLYON, France „ The missing president of the police agency Interpol sent his wife an image of a knife immediately before he disappeared in China, which she believes was his way of saying that he was in danger. Grace Meng detailed the chilling “nal exchange of messages with her husband, Meng Hongwei, to reporters Sunday in the French city of Lyon, where Interpol is based. Apparently con“rming her fears for his safety: China announced less than an hour after she spoke that Meng was under investigation on suspicion of unspeci“ed legal violations, making the vice minister for public security and Interpol chief the latest high-pro“le of“cial to be swept up in a government crackdown. The disciplinary organ of Chinas ruling Communist Party said in a brief statement on its website, Meng was suspected of violating the law and is currently under the monitoring and investigationŽ of Chinas new anti-corruption body, the National Supervision Commission. The statement was the “rst of“cial word on the 64-year-old Mengs fate. In Lyon, meanwhile, his wife was speaking for the “rst time about his disappearance. She said she hadnt heard from her husband since Sept. 25. Using his Interpol telephone, he sent her the knife image that day, four minutes after he sent a message saying, Wait for my call.Ž She said the call never came and she does not know what happened to him. Of the knife image, she said: I think he means he is in danger.Ž She said he was in China when he sent the message. This is the last, last message from my husband,Ž she said. After that I have no call and he disappeared.Ž Mrs. Meng was accompanied to the hotel where she held her press conference by two French police of“cers who were assigned to look after her. She said he regularly traveled back and forth between Lyon and China for his job. He had been on a three-country tour, to Norway, Sweden and Serbia, for Interpol before his latest trip back to China, she said. She would not allow reporters to show her face, saying she feared for her own safety and the safety of her children. Her voice trembled with emotion as she read a prepared statement. The appeal by Mengs wife for justice and fairness echoed pleas from the families of scores of people who fell afoul of the Chinese Communist Party under President Xi Jinpings rule. Some of them might have been pursued by Chinese authorit ies under Mengs watch.Wife of missing Interpol officer says he sent knife image as danger signal This photo shows the last message sent by missing Interpol President, Meng Hongwei, to his wife, Grace Meng. Mrs. Meng showed reporters the message, on her mobile phone, during a press conference in Lyon, central France, Sunday where Interpol is based. The message from Meng at 12:26 on Sept. 26 says wait for my call.Ž Four minutes later, he sent the photo of the knife. By STEPHEN WRIGHT and EILEEN NGASSOCIATED PRESSPALU, Indonesia „ Christians dressed in their tidiest clothes ”ocked to Sunday sermons in the earthquake and tsunami damaged Indonesian city of Palu, seeking answers as the death toll from the twin disasters breached 1,700 and of“cials said they feared more than 5,000 others could be missing. Indonesias disaster agency said the number of dead had climbed to 1,763, mostly in Palu. Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said many more people could be buried, especially in the Palu neighborhoods of Petobo and Balaroa, where more than 3,000 homes were damaged or sucked into deep mud when the Sept. 28 quake caused loose soil to liquefy. Based on reports from village chiefs in Balaroa and Petobo, some 5,000 people have not been found. Our workers on the ground are trying to con“rm this,Ž he said at a news brie“ng in Jakarta, Indonesias capital. Nugroho said that efforts to retrieve decomposed bodies in deep, soft mud were getting tougher and that some people may have ”ed or been rescued and evacuated. More than 8,000 either injured or vulnerable residents have been ”own or shipped out of Palu, while others could have left by land, he said. Of“cially, Nugroho said only 265 people are con“rmed missing and 152 others still buried under mud and rubble, nine days after the magnitude 7.5 earthquake and powerful tsunami hit Palu and surrounding areas. The government targets to end search operations by Thursday, nearly two weeks after the disaster, at which time those unaccounted for will be declared missing and considered dead, Nugroho said. In Palu on Sunday, at least 200 people, including soldiers, “lled the gray pews of the Protestant Manunggal church for a service. They sang as a young girl in a black and white dress with a red bow danced in the aisle, prayed and listened to a 30-minute sermon from the pastor, Lucky Malonda. A woman in the front pew wept. Min Kapala, a 49-yearold teacher, said she came to the city of more than 25 churches from an outlying area because her usual house of worship was destroyed and liquefaction moved a different piece of ground to its location. Outside the church, Malonda said the intensity of the disaster had taken even scientists by surprise and called it the will of God. Two people from his congregation were missing, he said. This is for sure part of godly intervention, not outside the power of almighty God, that cant be predicted or planned for by anything,Ž Malonda said. He said religious leaders are discussing holding inter-faith prayers but nothing has been agreed yet. Protestants, Catholics and Charismatics make up about 10 percent of the population of Palu, the provincial capital of Central Sulawesi. The province has a history of violent con”ict between Muslims and Christians, though tensions have calmed in the past decade. Indonesia is the worlds most populous Muslim country. As searchers continued to dig through rubble Sunday, Central Sulawesi Gov. Loki Djanggola said local of“cials were meeting with religious groups and families of victims to seek their consent to turn neighborhoods wiped out by liquefaction into mass graves. He said on local television that survivors in the Petobo, Balaroa and Jono Oge neighborhoods could be relocated and monuments be built in the areas, which now look like wastelands, to remember the victims interred there. Of“cials have said that it is not safe for heavy equipment to operate in those areas and that they fear the risk of the spread of disease from decomposed bodies. While grappling with immediate relief needs, the government is also mapping out plans to help more than 70,000 people, including tens of thousands of children, who have been displaced by the disasters to rebuild their lives. Social welfare of“cials have set up nurseries in makeshift tents as a stopgap to keep children safe and help them heal from the trauma. Market vendors have resumed business and roadside restaurants were open in Palu, but long lines of cars and motorcycles still snarled out of gas stations. In Jakarta, volunteers walked around thoroughfares empty of cars collecting donations for earthquake victims during the weekly carfree morning in the city center.Indonesian officials fear 5,000 missing from tsunami as Christians pray AP PHOTOSA man surveys the damage suered byPetobo neighborhood which was wiped out by earthquake-triggered liquefaction as the sun set in Palu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia, Sunday.

Haiti earthquake kills 11, injures 135PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) „ Emergency teams worked to provide relief in Haiti on Sunday after a magnitude 5.9 earthquake killed 11 people and left 135 injured. The countrys civil protection agency said that at least seven people died in the coastal city of Port-de-Paix and three people died in the nearby community of Gros-Morne in the province of Artibonite. It said that the injured were being treated at medical centers in the northern part of the country. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake hit at 8:11 p.m. Saturday night and was centered 12 miles northwest of Portde-Paix, which is about 136 miles from the capital of Port-au-Prince. The quake was 7.3 miles below the surface. It was felt lightly in the capital, as well as in the neighboring Dominican Republic and in eastern Cuba, where no damage was reported. Rescue workers in Haiti said they were not looking for any more victims. Damage was also reported at the police station in Port-de-Paix, and parts of a hospital and an auditorium collapsed in Gros-Morne. Parliamentarian Alcide Audne told The Associated Press that two of the deaths occurred in the auditorium.Outcry as Jews create own group in German far-right partyBERLIN „ Jewish members of the far-right Alternative for Germany party, or AfD, met in the southwestern German city of Wiesbaden on Sunday to create a Jewish section within the party „ a move that drew strong condemnation from other Jews. Nineteen people joined the new Jews in the AfDŽ group, local media reported. A leading member of the group, Wolfgang Fuhl, told the German news agency dpa, that only AfD members who were ethnically or religiously considered Jewish, could participate in the new group. Some 250 people protested against the Jewish AfD group in nearby Frankfurt. Youre not getting a kosher stamp from us,Ž said Dalia Grinfeld, the leader of the Jewish Students Union of Germany. Meron Mendel, the director of the Anne Frank Educational Center, called the creation of the group a PR stunt by the far right,Ž dpa reported. Despite repeatedly downplaying the horrors of the Holocaust, the far-right party has acquired some Jewish members who are drawn to its rhetoric against Muslim immigrants. Germany has seen an increase of anti-Semitic incidents including a series of violent attacks on Jews by Muslims. Most Jews, however, do not believe that the AfD will become a guarantor of Jewish life in GermanyŽ as some party leaders have touted in the past. At the same time there is widespread ambivalence among Jews in Germany when it comes to the more than 1 million migrants who came to Germany since 2015, the majority of whom are Muslims from countries like Syria or Iraq with attitudes hostile to Jews and Israel. The head of the Jewish Council, Joseph Schuster, has repeatedly warned that Jews shouldnt wear their traditional skullcap, or kippa, in German areas with large Muslim populations.

The Sun | Monday, October 8, 2018 E/N/C Page 3By HANNAH RODRIGUEZTHE SEATTLE TIMES (TNS)SEATTLE „ Catching an ear infection is uncomfortable enough, but imagine if the antibiotics a doctor prescribed didnt work. Its a problem that at least 2 million people in the U.S. face every year, when they catch infections that are resistant to antibiotics, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That makes the phenomenon known as antimicrobial resistance, or AMR, one of the biggest public health challenges of our time,Ž the agency said. AMR may cause 10 million deaths globally by 2050, based on rising drug resistance for six pathogens, according to a report commissioned by the British government in 2016. Last month, a group of scientists and doctors in Seattle started a nonpro“t organization to “gure out a solution. The group, known as Antibiotic Resistance Monitoring, Analysis and Diagnostics Alliance (ARMADA), said it wants to get a grasp on the situationŽ by building a database that tracks and “ngerprintsŽ bacterial strains. Right now a patient comes to the doctor with an infection and the doctor knows a lot about the patient, but doesnt know anything about the bug,Ž Dr. Evgeni Sokurenko, who founded ARMADA and teaches microbiology at the University of Washington, said in an interview last month at ARMADAs lab in Seattle. How a patient will react to an infection will be tracked in their medical records, but nothing is being tracked about the bug, even though the bug will repeat itself and no one will know what it has done in other patients.Ž The project will collect information on how drug-resistant strains of bacteria, or so-called superbugs, react to a variety of antibiotics. By sharing the data with hospitals and microbiology labs, health practitioners would then be able to immediately identify the most effective drug for patients. ARMADA has already collected data for 30,000 strains, a number it seeks to grow tenfold in two to three years. Since antibiotics are produced from natural compounds, bacteria have been developing resistance for millions of years, Dr. Prish Tosh, who specializes in treating infectious diseases at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, said in an interview last month. That includes resistance to undiscovered compounds, he said. A so-called biobank, such as the one ARMADA is building would be particularly useful for identifying what resistance has already been discovered in nature, he added. Brianna Strand, a native of Poulsbo, Wash., died when she was just 28 of complications from an infection she contracted that didnt respond to antibiotics. In 2013, during routine treatments for her cystic “brosis, Strands doctors discovered a lung infection caused by a bacteria strain called Mycobacterium abscessus. The superbug is resistant to multiple drugs, and is especially dangerous if contracted by individuals with weak immune systems, like Strand. Strand took a combination of two to three antibiotics per day over the following four years, in hopes that one would win the “ght, according to her father, Jim Oas. By May 2017, none of the drugs had proved effective, and Strands doctors decided to send her home. The hospital told her, Youre dying. Your lungs arent working so your organs and body are shutting down due to the carbon monoxide,Ž Oas said by phone last month. One doctor came in, got on his knees and asked for her forgiveness. She said she wanted to die in the house she grew up in so we took her home.Ž Strand is one of about 700,000 people who die of antibiotic-resistant infections every year, according to a 2016 Review on Antimicrobial Resistance. What I want to emphasize is how much guesswork we currently do when it comes to antibiotics,Ž said Dr. Scott Weissman, a pediatric infectious disease specialist at Seattle Childrens. The project receives funding the National Institutes of Health and partners with Seattle Childrens, Harborview Medical Center and Kaiser Permanente. Dr. Arjun Srinivasan, CDC associate director for Healthcare Associated Infection Prevention Programs, said technology is one part of the solution, but antibiotic resistance is still a complicated issue. ARMADAs project could be very useful as we learn more about the genetic machinery bacteria possesses,Ž Dr. Srinivasan said in an email. It is encouraging that bright and innovative people are working to apply innovative solutions. The threat is dynamic, serious and evolving.ŽDoctors, scientists fight superbugs that could kill millions KEN LAMBERT/THE SEATTLE TIMESBacterial samples are grown in Seattle, in a program in the “ght against antibiotic-resistant superbugs.Ž CORTE MADERA, Calif. (AP) „ Sonia Orbuch, who survived the Holocaust as a teenager in eastern Europe by joining a resistance group that was sabotaging the Nazis, has died in Northern California, a newspaper reported. She was 93. Orbuch died Sept. 30 at her home in Corte Madera, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Saturday, quoting her son, Paul Orbuch, and a longtime friend, Fred Rosenbaum. No cause of death was given. She was born Sarah Shainwald in the eastern Polish town of Luboml and was 16 when German forces took over the area in 1941 and began killing Jews, the newspaper reported. Her family ”ed to nearby forests and hid there for the winter. By spring, they joined a group made up of Soviet soldiers and civilians who targeted Nazi troops by blowing up trains, ambushing convoys and sniping at outposts. The group was reluctant to take in a Jewish family with no military skills, but the leaders were persuaded by Sonias uncle, who had been a scout in the Polish army and knew the region. The group thought her original name sounded too Jewish, so she was renamed Sonia. She had no medical training, but Sonia learned to tend to the wounded. She kept watch and went on raids. She always carried two grenades „ one for the Nazis and one for herself. She did not want to be taken alive. Suddenly, I was not afraid of bombs „ me, a girl who had been afraid of a ”y,Ž she said later. After the war, she married Isaak Orbuch and they moved to the U.S. Her husband died in 1998. Later in life, Sonia Orbuch became an author and lecturer. In 2009, she wrote her autobiography, Here, There Are No Sarahs,Ž and helped found the Jewish Partisan Educational Foundation, which honors the memory of the 20,000 to 30,000 Jews who fought in resistance groups in World War II.Sonia Orbuch, who fought Nazis as a girl, dies in California ORBUCHNATIONAL NEWS Maybe youve had multiple tests, only to nd out no one has any idea what you have.

The things of this earth are temporary. The things of God are eternal. Think it over. Some contentious issues, though, will be harder to avoid because federal law compels the courts involvement. In coming months, the issue of drawing political districts for partisan advantage will return to the court in a case from North Carolina. Last term, the justices failed to set limits on the practice known as partisan gerrymandering in cases from Maryland and Wisconsin. Kennedy was seen as the conservative justice most likely to side with liberals on the issue. His retirement dimmed the hopes of proponents of such limits. New state restrictions on abortion could make their way to the Supreme Court soon, along with challenges to the Affordable Care Act and protection from deportation for young immigrants. The leader of an anti-abortion group that supported Kavanaugh foreshadowed the “ght to come in a statement issued just after the con“rmation vote. Judge Kavanaughs distinguished judicial career has been built upon his constitutionalist approach to law, and we trust that this will serve all Americans well when Roe v. Wade inevitably comes before the Supreme Court for review,Ž said Catherine Glenn Foster, president of Americans United for Life, referring to the courts landmark 1973 abortion rights ruling. Kavanaughs arrival on the court after the most tumultuous con“rmation battle since Clarence Thomas faced allegations of sexual harassment by Anita Hill in 1991 hardens the alignment of party and ideology: “ve conservatives appointed by Republican presidents and four liberals by Democrats. That was true with Kennedy on the bench, but he voted with the liberals in cases that preserved abortion rights and af“rmative action, expanded LGBT rights and limited capital punishment. Two of those liberal justices, speaking Friday at Princeton University, talked about the courts legitimacy, without mentioning their new colleague. Every single one of us needs to realize how precious the courts legitimacy is. You know we dont have an army. We dont have any money. The only way we can get people to do what we think they should do is because people respect us,Ž Justice Elena Kagan said. Justice Sonia Sotomayor said the nine justices recognize the small world they inhabit, suggesting that the tense atmosphere surrounding Kavanaughs nomination is unlikely to be replicated on the court. We have to rise above partisanship in our personal relationships. We have to treat each with respect and dignity and a sense of amicability that the rest of the world doesnt always share,Ž Sotomayor said. Chief Justice John Roberts has been especially sensitive to portrayals of the court as a political institution. That perception has waxed and waned over the years, but it was particularly strong following the Bush v. Gore decision that sealed Bushs 2000 election. On a practical level, the four liberal justices need a vote from the right side of the court in which they otherwise divide on the familiar ideological fault lines. Kennedy and Sandra Day OConnor were justices who found the center,Ž Kagan said, and thats enabled the court to look as though it was not owned by one side of the other. Its not so clear that you know going forward that that sort of middle position „ its not so clear whether well have it.Ž In stressing Kavanaughs frequent agreement with Judge Merrick Garland on the federal appeals court in Washington, the new justices backers seem to be suggesting that Kavanaughs vote cannot be taken for granted. I saw him rule in favor of liberal parties. I saw him rule in favor of criminal defendants who were unsympathetic. For 12 years, I saw him rule where the law led and I expect him to do the same on the Supreme Court,Ž said Justin Walker, a University of Louisville law professor and former Kavanaugh law clerk. But the more widely held expectation among court watchers is that Roberts, who joined with the liberal justices to uphold President Barack Obamas health care overhaul, will determine how far and fast the court moves. You might think of him as the swing vote, but its less that he will be up in the air in various cases. But he will be important in determining which cases the court takes, how quickly they move and how they decide cases,Ž Clement said. For Wydra, the new role for Roberts underscores the courts shift to the right. I guess he is now the new center, which is rather frightening considering how conservative he is,Ž she said.COURTFROM PAGE 1 her 34-year-old niece Erin Vertucci was among the victims, along with Vertuccis newlywed husband, 30-year-old Shane McGowan. They were on their way to a friends birthday party, she said; her own daughter had been invited along but couldnt go. She was a beautiful, sweet soul; he was too,Ž Abeling said. The couple was married at a beautiful weddingŽ in June at a venue in upstate New York, Abeling said. They had everything going for them.Ž Vertucci, who grew up in Amsterdam, New York, was an administrative assistant at St. Marys Healthcare in Amsterdam, Abeling said. At the news conference, Fiore didnt comment on speed, or whether the occupants of the vehicle had been wearing seat belts. This is one of the biggest losses of life that weve seen in a long, long time,Ž NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt told reporters. Its the deadliest transportation accident since February 2009, when Colgan Air Flight 3407 crashed in Buffalo, New York, killing 50 people, Sumwalt said. And it appears to be the deadliest land-vehicle accident since a bus ferrying nursing home patients away from Hurricane Rita caught “re in Texas 2005, killing 23. The vehicle was an after-market stretch limousine, according to an of“cial who was briefed on the matter and was not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation publicly so spoke on condition of anonymity. Safety issues on such vehicles have arisen before, most notably after a wreck on Long Island in July 2015 in which four women on a winery tour were killed. They were in a Lincoln Town Car that had been cut apart and rebuilt in a stretch con“guration to accommodate more passengers. The limousine was trying to make a U-turn and was struck by a pickup. A grand jury found that vehicles converted into stretch limousines often dont have safety measures including side-impact air bags, reinforced rollover protection bars and accessible emergency exits. That grand jury called on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to assemble a task force on limousine safety. Limousines built in factories are already required to meet stringent safety regulations, but when cars are converted into limos, safety features are sometimes removed, leading to gaps in safety protocols, the grand jury wrote. On Sunday, New Yorks senior U.S. Sen., Chuck Schumer, noted he asked NTSB to toughen standards after the 2015 crash. I commend the NTSBs immediate aid on scene and am very hopeful that we will have concrete answers soon,Ž Schumer said. Limousine accidents remain rare, according to NTSB data. They accounted for only one death crash out of 34,439 fatal accidents in 2016, the last year for which data is available. Cuomo on Sunday released a statement saying, My heart breaks for the 20 people who lost their lives in this horri“c accident on Saturday in Schoharie. I commend the “rst responders who arrived on the scene and worked through the night to help. State police are working with federal and local authorities to investigate the crash, and I have directed state agencies to provide every resource necessary to aid in this investigation and determine what led to this tragedy.ŽLIMOFROM PAGE 1By JULIE CARR SMYTHASSOCIATED PRESSCOLUMBUS, Ohio „ The largest city named for Christopher Columbus has called off its observance of the divisive holiday that honors the explorer, making a savvy move to tie the switch to a politically safe demographic: veterans. Ohios capital city, population 860,000, will be open for business Monday after observing Columbus Day probably for as long as it had been in existence,Ž said Robin Davis, a spokeswoman for Democratic Mayor Andrew Ginther. City of“ces will close instead on Veterans Day, which falls on Nov. 12 this year. Native Americans and allied groups have long used Columbus Day to elevate issues of concern to them. That includes a peaceful protest of prayers, speeches and traditional singing in 2016 at Columbus City Hall „ underneath the statue of the explorer that sits out front „ to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline and to urge Ohio to support more renewable energy. The decision to stop observing the holiday was not triggered by the national movement to abolish Columbus Day in favor of Indigenous Peoples Day as a way of recognizing victims of colonialism, Davis said. Columbus Day marks the Italian explorers arrival in the Americas on Oct. 12, 1492. We have a number of veterans who work for the city, and there are so many here in Columbus,Ž Davis said. We thought it was important to honor them with that day off.Ž And, she said, the city doesnt have the budget to give its 8,500 employees both days off, she said. Columbus made its announcement Thursday in a two-paragraph news release focused on the impact on trash pickup and parking enforcement schedules. In that way, it avoided much of the consternation that has taken place elsewhere around the holiday. An attempt in Akron to rename the holiday grew ugly last year, dividing the all-Democratic city council along racial lines. Five black members voted to rename the holiday and eight white members voted not to, keeping the holiday in place. A similar effort twice failed in Cincinnati before a vote Wednesday “nally recognized Columbus Day as the renamed Indigenous Peoples Day. It became the second Ohio city to do so, after the liberal college town of Oberlin in 2017. Cleveland, which has a large ItalianAmerican population, continues to host a major Columbus Day parade. Organizers of the 39-year-old Columbus Italian Festival, traditionally held on Columbus Day weekend, were not given advance notice of the citys decision, said board member Joseph Contino. Its very in vogue politically right now to do that. Its not PC for me to say anything against indigenous peoples,Ž he said. You can kick Christians, you can kick Catholics. Thats the message that it sends to us and thats what it feels like; were Europeans and we lop Indians heads off. Which is just not true.Ž Contino said he viewed the decision on the holiday as a missed opportunity. If youre mayor of a city and its name is Columbus, why wouldnt you capitalize on that? Use it to unite everybody,Ž he said. Use this day to celebrate the entire culture, celebrate Italians and indigenous both.Ž Tyrone Smith, director of the Native American Indian Center of Central Ohio, said the citys decision is another step in embracing its growing diversity. The past is the past. It may not be pretty at times, but we cannot hold what happened back then against todays society, regardless their bloodline,Ž he said. The fact that the city of Columbus is taking action is a victory for everyone.ŽNo Columbus Day in Columbus?

The Sun | Monday, October 8, 2018 E/N/C Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: I have hyperhidrosis and want to know what, if anything, I can do to alleviate this condition. I am 71 and physically active. I exercise almost every day for an hour. I sweat profusely, mainly from my torso, but it's not only when I work out; it's also if I exert even a modest amount of energy or am anxious about an upcoming event. I wear an undershirt to soak up the sweat. It is embarrassing when I'm out in public and I nd that my shirt is soaked and sticking to my skin. This has been going on for years. My doctor tried changing my prescription drugs, but we did not see a change in my condition. I would appreciate any insight you might oer. If this is just the way I am, I'll accept it, but if there is a change needed in my lifestyle, I'll consider doing it. „ H.S. ANSWER: Primary hyperhidrosis is the term for excess sweating for no clear reason. It needs to be considered separately from sweating that occur as part of hot ashes or as night sweats. It sounds like it's pretty clearly the case in you. Many people with primary hyperhidrosis sweat in one particular location: The head and hands are common, but underarms are the most common. It sometimes runs in families, doesn't usually happen during sleep and usually is the same on one side as the other. It often starts around adolescence. It may not seem to readers like too horrible a condition, but people with it often report signicant social problems, both personally and professionally. It can lead to skin problems that stem from having constantly wet skin. It is common but varies widely in severity. The rst treatment for this is a prescription-strength antiperspirant, such as 20 percent aluminum chloride hexahydrate, which physically blocks sweat pores. It is applied at night (when sweating is least) to all the areas of excess sweating, every night until you see improvement, which usually takes a week or so. Then, the applications may be decreased to perhaps weekly. The medication is washed o in the morning. For people in whom this doesn't work and those with a relatively small, discrete area of sweating, botulinum toxin can be injected, which lasts for months. I don't know if you have too large an area of excess sweating for this to work. For people with underarm sweating, there is a device that uses microwaves to destroy sweat glands. Two treatments are about 95 percent eective, but they are expensive and not generally covered by insurance. Many people nd that regular exercise increases overall sweating. However, regular exercise has so many benets that I wouldn't recommend you reduce your exercise. I hope one of these treatments is helpful. DR. ROACH WRITES: A recent column from a person annoyed by medical professionals asking about smoking history led to some letters telling me (some nicely, others not so) that I was naive and that the real purpose of doing so was to bill insurance companies. A nurse who worked in Medicare fraud evaluation suggested that routine asking about smoking could lead to billions of dollars in excess billing, which would be fraudulent if, for example, the person who had smoked one cigarette decades ago was being billed for tobacco cessation counseling. Of course, it is appropriate to look for tobacco use and to advise smokers to quit. Unfortunately, well-meaning incentives to get health care providers to improve this can be misused.DEAR ABBY: My best friend of 40 years and her boyfriend live several states away from my husband and me. Every winter she and her friend expect to come to our home for a week. We simply can no longer do this. Her friend is a nice guy, but after a few days we can hardly stand it. He talks constantly and knows everything about everything. How can I politely tell my friend that we can't accommodate them anymore without hurting her feelings and maybe ending our friendship? „ Weary Out West DEAR WEARY: Try this. When your old friend mentions coming to visit, tell her you aren't up to having house guests. If she asks why, and she probably will, say you're not as young as you used to be „ it's true. Neither am I. Tell her you can accommodate them for a weekend. If that doesn't work, say your husband isn't up for company. (Also true.) DEAR ABBY: I recently received an invitation to a dear friend's grandson's 5th birthday party. In lieu of gifts, donations were requested to a choice of politically aliated "charitable" organizations. I cannot, in good conscience, support any of them. What's the appropriate course of action here? Must I give the child a gift anyway, or just stay away from the party? I don't want to get into any political discussions with parents or grandparents, and I think there would be hurt feelings if I don't show up. „ In A Bind DEAR IN A BIND: What a shame that a child's party was used as an excuse for a political fundraiser. I can't imagine any 5-yearold being "thrilled" to receive a political donation as a birthday gift. However, because the child is the grandson of a "dear" friend, I do think a gift is in order. Make it something a 5-year-old will enjoy, have it delivered, and nd an excuse not to attend if you feel it will devolve into something you prefer to avoid. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is about phone scammers. „ Heloise "Dear Heloise: I'm sick of phone scammers! Things have gotten so bad, and the scammers have gotten so sophisticated, that I'm afraid to answer the phone if it's a number I don't recognize. So now, even if a charity calls, I simply say, 'I take no solicitations by telephone.' Then I hang up. "The other day, I received an email that looked legitimate from my internet carrier, but something cautioned me to phone and inquire whether or not they had actually asked for my Social Security number, along with banking information. They hadn't sent me an email and told me to report this to the state consumer protection oce or to the Federal Trade Commission's online Complaint Assistant.

Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Monday, October 8, 2018 ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your warrior nature will be called out in a situation so ordinary and low-key youll be surprised at your own reaction. In Mr. Miyagis words, Its OK to lose to opponent. Must not lose to fear!Ž TAURUS (April 20-May 20). No matter how great your day may be going, theres always a tiny part of your mind too aware that somewhere in the world someone is having the worst day ever. Instead of letting that bring you down, you let it help you feel grateful. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Neuroscientists have captured it on lm „ molecules morphing into memories „ so is it such a stretch to say theres actual mass to what you remember? It will certainly feel as if that is the case today. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Social faux pas are easier than ever to make. An unanswered text or the wrong sort of social media comment could cause dissonance. Counteract by being more sensitive and conscientious than you think you need to be. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Maybe the repetition of certain behaviors seems silly, but if it means something to someone, then its signicance should be noted. Rituals matter to people „ unreasonably so! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The potential for fresh faces is high today. Youve the space for a new friend to drop into your world. If the other person also has the room, things will develop very quickly. If not, it will be a slow-grow situation. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Be aware that many dont have the high emotional intelligence it takes to bridge gaps of understanding between people. You do, and youll be called to use this talent today. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are several ways out of the entrapment of false need. Being grateful for what we have inoculates us from a lot of superuous needy feelings. So does dierentiating between need and want. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Youll wind up in an unexpected yet enjoyable conversation. It doesnt have to lead anywhere to add sparkle to your life. But if it does develop into friendship, that will be great, too. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There is an exhausting amount of nuance involved in casual social relationships. The trick is to be sensitive to your place without putting too harsh a limit on your natural instinct. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Youve been the mini-me,Ž and youve had a copycat of your own. These situations usually end in the same way „ with the realization that the similarities between even very similar people only go so far. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There are times for listening, for talking and for saying nothing, oering a compassionate heart and perhaps a hug. Youre sensitive to what mode is right for the situation, and youll lead with this understanding. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (Oct. 8). Youll gure out how youre uniquely strong and lean into that with gusto. Youll dazzle the onlookers, among whom will be old and new connections. More highlights of the solar return: a long plane ride and travels that are the envy of your friends, a pleasing oering to elders, and part two of a key relationship. Cancer and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 6, 40, 7 and 18.

The network calls Wilsons character on The Walking Dead,Ž Hershel Greene, the emotional core of the show.Ž Wilson starred on series from 2011 to 2014. His return for the upcoming season was announced just hours earlier on Saturday. Wilson already “ lmed his scenes for season nine.

(AP) „ Reality TV star Kim Kardashian West is suing a former security guard over an incident in Paris in which she was bound and robbed of jewelry that was worth millions of dollars. The News Journal reported Friday that West and an insurance company “ led the suit in New Castle County Superior Court in Wilmington, Delaware. It alleges negligence and misconduct and demands $6.1 million. Court documents name Pascal Duvier and his company as the defendants. The lawsuit states that armed men stormed Wests Paris hotel room in 2016. Insurer AIG Property Casualty Co. paid out $6.1 million to cover the losses. The lawsuit claims that Duvier failed to address several security breaches at the hotel, including a missing or broken lock on the hotels courtyard gate.Bette Midler apologizes after tweet causes backlashNEW YORK (AP) „ Bette Midler is apologizing for a tweet that caused a social media backlash when she compared the struggle of women to the history of racism. The singer-actress wrote that women are the n-word of the worldŽ and They are the most disrespected creatures on earth.Ž Midler was quoting the title of a 1972 song written by John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Part of the lyrics in the once-contentious 1972 song Midler was referring too are, Woman is the n„„r of the world, yes she is. If you dont believe me take a look to the one youre with. Woman is the slave to the slaves.Ž In a deleted tweet, she said song she was referring to rang true then, and it rings true today, whether you like it or not. This is not about race, this is about the status of women; THEIR HISTORY.Ž The comment drew sharp criticism from many who said it erased the atrocities committed against black people and the struggle of black women. Midler tried to defend the tweet before deleting it altogether and apologizing a few hours later, saying to black women: I am an ally and stand with you; always have. And I apologize.Ž By JAKE COYLEAP FILM WRITERNEW YORK „ In a weekend of perfect counterprogramming for Hollywood, the comic-book movie VenomŽ shrugged off bad reviews to shatter the October box-of“ ce record with an $80 million debut, while Bradley Coopers A Star Is BornŽ soared to $41.3 million. With $174.5 million in tickets sold at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore, it was easily the best October weekend ever thanks to two very different “ lms that both outperformed expectations. VenomŽ came in a critically panned, much-doubted foray by Sony Pictures to kick-start a Marvel expansion away from Spider-Man.Ž Warner Bros. A Star Is BornŽ remake rode a wave of hype, Oscar buzz and acclaim for Coopers directorial debut and Lady Gagas “ rst leading performance. One was a very iffy proposition; the other a sure thing. Both worked big time. We knew we had a hit,Ž said Warner Bros. distribution chief Jeffrey Goldstein of A Star Is Born.Ž We also knew that every time people saw the movie, they felt it, they cried, they loved it. People just like the movie.Ž That was more in question for director Ruben Fleischers Venom,Ž starring Tom Hardy as the antihero who “ rst appeared in 2007s Spider-Man 3.Ž The “ lm earned a dismal 32 percent freshŽ rating on Rotten Tomatoes. In Venom,Ž many expected another studio mis“ re with cinematic universeŽ ambitions. Yet audiences ” ocked to VenomŽ in record numbers, giving it a B-plus CinemaScore. The previous best October opening was 2013s GravityŽ with $55.7 million (not adjusted for in” ation). Adrian Smith, president of domestic distribution for Sony, said that even though the studio was con“ dent, I did not see $80 million coming.Ž The most telling number that explained the “ lms success, Smith said, was the 89 percent freshŽ audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. Venom,Ž which cost about $100 million to make (relatively modest for a superhero “ lm), grossed a total of $205.2 million globally. Steven ODell, Sonys president of international distribution, said the studio wanted to carve out a new approach for the comic-book adaptation with the PG-13rated Venom.Ž This is not a Marvel style; its not DC,Ž ODell said. Tonally, its its own unique direction.Ž While VenomŽ attracted a younger, majority male audience, crowds for A Star is BornŽ were more female, at 66 percent, and older, at 68 percent over 35. Warner Bros., which premiered A Star Is BornŽ last month at the Venice Film Festival, previewed the “ lm in special advance screenings in the days ahead of opening, adding an additional $1.3 million in ticket sales. The “ fth version of the oft-remade tale, which cost about $40 million to make, had been in development at Warner Bros. for decades, with earlier versions to potentially star Whitney Houston or Beyonce. With A Star Is BornŽ expected to play a large role in awards season, Goldstein said the “ lm is sure to run through Christmas. The movies soundtrack also reached No. 1 on iTunes this week. The two “ lms dominated the marketplace, though in limited release, Fox 2000s The Hate U GiveŽ opened with $500,000 on 36 screens. That gave George Tillman Jr.s adaptation of Angie Thomas best-selling young adult novel, starring Amandla Stenberg, a modest $14,000 per-screen average. The “ lm is set to expand nationwide in the next two weeks. Aubrey Wells, who wrote The Hate U GiveŽ adaptation, died Friday at age 58 after a “ ve-year battle with cancer. VenomŽ and A Star Is BornŽ helped push the year-todate box of“ ce further above last year, now up 9.2 percent. The industry is absolutely on “ re right now,Ž said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore. We just “ nished the second-best September ever.

SPORTSMonday, October 8, 2018 | | @Sun_PrepsBraves top Dodgers, force game 4The Atlanta Braves stayed alive in the National League Divsion Series Playos Sunday with a 6-5 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers at SunTrust Park. See more on line at | Auto racing 2 | Lottery 2 | NBA 2 | Local Sports 3 | Pro baseball 4 | Scoreboard 5 | Colleges 6 | NFL 7 | Golf 8 | Weather 8 Sometimes I worry about the future of football and Im somewhat torn on how to feel. From a fan of the NFL, I think the game is getting soft. The emphasis on protecting the offensive guys at the expense of quality defense is just as much a money move to me than a safety tactic. I get the merit, but I dont always agree with the decisions the NFL Competition Committee makes. I always say to myself, The players know the risks of the game and they take them head on.Ž But then I look at the younger athletes in the sport „ mainly high school. In the past two weeks two local games have had serious collisions that resulted in one player being taken to the ER and another taken away by helicopter. Its a dangerous game and unlike the college and NFL players, these high schoolers get nothing in return other than a promise down the line. There are lots of bad form tackles due to inexperience that result in these helmet-to-helmet collisions. And its not the fault of coaches or high school football organizations. Its just part of the game and I dont think it will change much going forward. For the kids safety, I hope we find a way to protect them without resorting to flag pulling, but that has yet to be seen. On the flip side, safety is key, but that doesnt mean I dont like good, clean hits and one of my favorite hitters so far this season has been North Port defensive back Bradley Augustin. Ive covered the Bobcats more than any other team this season, so I guess I have a limited sample size, but Augustin comes up big a lot. This past week, Augustin made a solid hit that jarred the ball loose from a Bayshore receivers hands on a key fourth down stop with under four minutes to play. It wasnt his hardest hit „ that came in the waning minutes By BEN BAUGHSPORTS EDITORA phone call would alter the direction of Greg Winklers coaching career. The Wisconsin native had coached football, wrestling and track, but it would be another sport that would transform his life. It was when his sons began to play soccer, a sport Winkler had limited experience with, but would become a focal point in his life, one that would ultimately see him be inducted into the Wisconsin Soccer Association Hall of Fame in 2015, and the Wisconsin Soccer Hall of Fame in 2017. Winkler is the new boys soccer coach at Charlotte High School. I had done a little bit of soccer in my college gym classes, soccer wasnt very popular yet, and the college I went to just had a club team, my high school still doesnt have the sport,Ž said Winkler. My kids started playing, somebody called me, and said, Do you want to coach. Im like, I dont know anything about it. And then I ended up helping somebody coach.Ž It was after that initial experience, Winkler made the decision to direct his energies to becoming a soccer coach. A high school opportunity presented itself, and Winkler made the transition from coaching football, to accepting an opportunity to coach a freshmen soccer team. It provided Winkler with the chance to immerse himself within the sport. The National Soccer Coaches Association of America, which is now the United Soccer Coaches, an organization that would present him with the coach of the year award in 2012, provided Winkler with a solid foundation, thanks to their comprehensive educational system, as he eventually earned a diploma through their program. My teams did really well, I ran a club for a long time in Wisconsin,Ž said Winkler, who was inducted into the Fond du Lac High School Athletic Hall of Fame, earning the distinction for his 17 years as a head coach that saw him accumulate 264 victories while at the helm of the soccer program, coaching both the boys and girls teams. The depth of his success with a sport, he knew little about, before making the transition, can be attributed in part to his demeanor. I like the fact that Im not a big yeller and screamer guy, even when I coached football, I wasnt a demonstrative guy on the sideline,Ž said Winkler, who served four years as the president of the Wisconsin Soccer Coaches Association. I try to give opportunities, and I felt like soccer “t my personality pretty well. It was a By DAVE SKRETTAAP SPORTS WRITERKANSAS CITY, Mo. „ Turns out the Kansas City Chiefs can play a little defense, too. The Chiefs beleaguered bunch forced Jacksonville quarterback Blake Bortles into five turnovers, including a pick-6 by defensive tackle Chris Jones, and Kansas City merely had to supplement with the NFLs highest-scoring offense in a 30-14 romp over the Jaguars on Sunday. Patrick Mahomes threw for 313 yards and ran for a touchdown, though he also threw his first two picks of the season, and Kareem Hunt added 87 yards and a touchdown on the ground as the Chiefs (5-0) marched all over the leagues topranked defense at soggy Arrowhead Stadium. Tyreek Hill, who was frequently matched up with the Jaguars Jalen Ramsey in an entertaining one-on-one affair, had four catches for 61 yards in a game that grew testy on both sides. Jones was ejected in the second half after he dropped an elbow on a Jaguars lineman while both were on the ground following a point-after attempt. Pass rusher Dee Ford joined him in the locker room later in the half when he was whistled for his second unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Hunt was flagged for head-butting linebacker Telvin Smith Jr. earlier in the game. Nobody had a worse day than Bortles, though. He was 33 of 61 for 430 yards with a touchdown and four interceptions and also ran for a TD „ though most of his yardage came in garbage time. Bortles also was stripsacked in the first half as early rains soaked the field. By that point, the Chiefs were on their way to a 20-0 halftime lead. Mahomes led them 73 yards on their first possession, finishing the drive himself with a short scramble for a touchdown. Then he led the leagues high-powered offense 82 yards for a field goal a few minutes later, leaving Jacksonvilles vaunted D second-guessing itself. Meanwhile, the Jaguars offense was having all kinds of problems. Jacksonville (3-2) drove inside the Kansas City 5 early in the By JOE KAYAP SPORTS WRITERCINCINNATI „ Michael Johnson returned an interception for the tying score, and Sam Hubbard went 19 yards with a fumble for the clinching touchdown Sunday, rallying the Cincinnati Bengals from a 17-point de“cit to a 27-17 victory over the Miami Dolphins. With Joe Mixon back from knee surgery, the defense making more game-turning plays in the fourth quarter, Cincinnati (4-1) pulled off its biggest comeback of the season and extended its best start since its 2015 playoff season. The Dolphins (3-2) had plenty of blame to go around for their second-half meltdown, helping the Bengals score those 27 consecutive points with mistakes. Andy Dalton threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Mixon to start the comeback, completing a drive that was extended by T.J. McDonalds personal foul on a third-down incompletion. Mixon returned after missing two games following knee surgery and ran for 93 yards in addition to catching three passes. The Bengals young defense sealed wins over Indianapolis and Baltimore with late turnovers. Two freaky bounces changed this one in the fourth quarter. Ryan Tannehills pass under pressure de”ected off the helmet of tight end Durham Smythe and caromed directly to Johnson, who ran 22 yards untouched for the tying score After Bullocks 20yard “eld goal gave the Bengals their “rst lead at 20-17, Tannehill was hit by Carlos Dunlap as he tried to pass and the ball ”ew to Hubbard, who ran untouched 19 yards to the end zone with 2:37 left to clinch it.

As the close calls and frustrating “nishes mounted, and wins eluded him, the 22-yearold Elliott could feel the pressure tighten each time he slipped into the No. 9 Chevrolet. But once Elliott raced to his “rst Cup win, the second victory wasnt far behind, and now the Hendrick Motorsports star pegged as NASCARs next most popular driver is thinking championship. There isnt any reason why we cant make a run at this deal,Ž Elliott said. Elliott stayed off pit road during a late caution and avoided similar disasters that struck the Stewart-Haas Racing drivers to pull away and win in overtime Sunday at Dover International Speedway. Elliott earned an automatic berth into the next round of the NASCAR Cup playoffs. Eight races after his “rst win at Watkins Glen, Elliott was back in victory lane again „ another needed dose of good news for NASCAR following the rousing success of the roval race last week at Charlotte. Elliott bounded over the wall and high-“ved Gordon, the driver he replaced in 2016, and shared a big hug with team owner Rick Hendrick. A year ago at Dover, Elliott coughed up the lead with two laps left to Kyle Busch, in what he called the most crushing defeat of his career. He left that race 0 for 70 in Cup. Elliott rubbed his head and leaned against his car, crestfallen as he replayed the final laps in his mind. Jimmie Johnson walked over to offer some encouragement and let Elliott vent. It was one big celebration on Sunday. When he won the race at Watkins Glen, it was like the world was lifted off his shoulders,Ž Hendrick said. Bill Elliott did not attend the race, but with more races like this one, its not hard to imagine son eventually eclipsing dads mark of one Cup championship. I think this only elevates his game,Ž Gordon said. Elliotts win means he can breathe a bit easier as the series shifts to treacherous Talladega, where anything can happen on the superspeedway. The top eight drivers after the next two races move on to the next round and Aric Almirola, Clint Bowyer, Kyle Larson and Alex Bowman are stuck below the cutoff with two races left in the round of 12. Weve had so many opportunities and been so close and had the car to win and been in position and I dont know, it just seems to not come through,Ž Almirola said. Denny Hamlin was second, followed by playoff driver Joey Logano. NASCAR playoff drivers took 10 of the top 15 spots. SHR was in control with Kevin Harvick early and Almirola late. Harvick led 286 laps and was on pace to sweep the Dover races until tire issues derailed his run and he “nished sixth. Almirola, who led 64 laps late and had his second career Cup win in sight, was running sixth off a restart when he got loose and connected with Brad Keselowski. That triggered a multicar wreck that collected championship contenders and brought out the red ”ag to force overtime. We were just lucky there and wound up dodging and weaving and being in the right place,Ž Harvick said. I guess that makes up for the bad luck of losing the race with an absolute dominant car.Ž Almirola had lost the lead when Bowyer wrecked. Elliott was third when he stayed out on yellow, and would lead the “nal 11 laps. I think that was our best opportunity to win the race, and it was our best opportunity to score the most points we could score,Ž crew chief Alan Gustafson said. Even if Denny would have passed us, which was certainly a possibility, it was still going to yield us more points than I think it would have had we pitted.Ž They got the points, the win „ and a championship hope still alive and well. Here are other items of note from Dover.JIMMI ES RIDEHendrick said there could be an announcement in the next month for Johnsons new 2019 sponsor. Lowes, which had been on the hood for all seven championships, said this year it was leaving the sport and Hendrick had yet to “nd another sponsor. Its really hard when you have someone thats so successful but theyve been tied to one brand for a long time,Ž Hendrick said. Johnsons bid for a record eighth NASCAR Cup title ended last week when he was eliminated from the playoffs. His No. 48 Chevrolet was forced to the garage at Dover during the pace laps because of mechanical woes and he “nished 36th. Johnson, who holds the Dover record with 11 wins, was an early hit when he dropped off 12 kids bikes at Martin Truex Jrs hauler as an apology of sorts for triggering a wreck last week at Charlotte that denied both drivers a shot at a win.BIG BETElliott had 12-1 odds in the “rst-ever race where legalized sports betting happened at the track. Dover International Speedway opened its on-site betting kiosk this weekend and became the only track that allowed sports gambling on its property. NASCAR does not prohibit its drivers or team members from betting on the race. NASCAR President Steve Phelps said the series is set to implement guidelines in the rulebook on sports betting in 2019.UP NEXTThe series heads to Talladega where Keselowski is the defending race winner.

By Chris HineSTAR TRIBUNE (MINNEAPOLIS) (TNS)AMES, Iowa „ It has been nearly three weeks since Jimmy Butler requested a trade from the Timberwolves, and although the Timberwolves were close to a trade this weekend, Butler is still on the team and uncertainty clouds his immediate future. The Wolves and Heat were close to a deal on Friday, but talks broke down late in the process, a source told the Star Tribune. The Heat have been aggressive in pursuing Butler and Miami is one of Butlers preferred destinations in a trade, but despite progress on talks this week, the teams couldnt get to the “nish line. The talks could restart, but the breakdown means it will likely take more time for the Wolves to deal Butler and the ambiguity around his status could remain into the regular season. ESPN reported that the trade progressed to the point where the Wolves shared Butlers medical information with the Heat and the owners for each team were consulted until the Wolves made 11th hour demands and the talks broke down. The report also said the Rockets have been aggressive in trying to acquire Butler while Yahoo reported the Clippers have interest in trading for Butler. ESPN reported the Heat softened their stance to include guard Josh Richardson in a potential deal. Thibodeau has said Butlers situation is ”uidŽ and has repeated many times over the last few weeks that he will make a deal as long as a good deal materializes. Butler remains away from the team of“cially as he rehabilitates his surgically-repaired right hand. The Wolves are at Iowa State on Sunday for a preseason game against the Bucks.Heat trade talks for Butler break down By TIM REYNOLDSAP BASKETBALL WRITERMIAMI „ For Ruth Riley Hunter, a new beginning comes in an old spot. Riley Hunters WNBA career started in Miami, and so will her NBA career. She debuts as a radio and television analyst for the Miami Heat on Monday, when the team begins the home portion of its preseason schedule against Orlando. The Heat “nalized her hiring about two weeks ago, and Riley Hunter „ she prefers to use her married name now „ is thrilled to get started. Its exciting times as a woman to have this opportunity,Ž she said. Riley Hunter will work radio for Heat home games and be an in-studio analyst on the television side when the team is on the road. She is the only woman scheduled to be a regular analyst on an NBA teams radio broadcast this season, although “ve teams have women as analysts „ at least in a part-time role „ on their television broadcasts. Also, more than half of the leagues 30 clubs have a female sideline reporter working at least some of the time. Its no longer a story to hire a woman,Ž Riley Hunter said. Its the perspective and value and experience that matters.Ž Riley Hunter spent her “rst two WNBA seasons with the now-defunct Miami Sol. She came to the Sol after leading Notre Dame to the 2001 national championship and quickly developed an af“nity for Miami. When you get a plane ticket going from South Bend, Indiana, to South Beach, its usually a one-way ticket,Ž Riley Hunter said. I made it my home.Ž Riley has been a television and radio analyst for Notre Dame womens games, and shes also been a broadcaster for San Antonios WNBA and G League clubs.

The Sun | Monday, October 8, 2018 SP Page 3 of the Bobcats loss to Sarasota when he sent a Sailor running back flying out of bounds „ but one of his more clutch hits. He hits clean and hits hard. The Bobcats rode the legs of running back Jalien Whye once again in their 17-6 win over the Bruins to move to .500 on the year. Whye earned his third 100-yard game this season. But the brightest spotlight of the week shined on the fields of Lemon Bay High School as the Mantas searched for their first win. Spoiler, they got it. For a team that has battled low numbers, injuries and blown leads, it was a sweet victory. The Mantas enjoyed a big day from Keegan Marinola, who rushed for 142 yards with a rushing and passing touchdown. They shut down the Estero offense and held them to just 3 points, scoring 26 themselves. The only other game going on Friday with the two Charlotte County teams enjoying their bye week was a battle of defending state champions. Defending 7A champ Venice rolled defending 2A champ Champagnat Catholic 58-6. With Super Bowl champion tight end Trey Burton „ Philly! Philly! „ in attendance, the Indians showed the Lions how things are done up there in 7A. Running back Brandon Gregory powered ahead for 141 yards and two touchdowns despite not playing much of the second half. The Indians continue to roll with little resistance on the horizon until the playoffs.

However, its reputation will be firmly cemented for years to come with the building of PicklePlex, a vision thats about to become a reality. The long awaited complex will be a welcome facility located on the Florida SouthWestern State College campus, attracting globally and nationally renowned tournaments. FSW looks forward to becoming the home of the PicklePlex of Punta Gorda, and were happy the FSW Charlotte Campus is able to provide the space needed to bring PicklePlex to life,Ž Keith Callaghan, Assistant Vice President, Economic Development and External Affairs.ŽWe anticipate this will bring excitement to our campus, exposing our students and the local community to the sport, and also bring local residents to our campus, including some who may have lived here 20 or 30 years but have never seen it.Ž The first phase of the project, is going through the permittal process, and the PicklePlex board has been meeting daily with the engineering firm to insure the facility will be ADA compliant, evacuation compliant, and offer area residents, local and visiting athletes, the best experience possible. The first 16 courts should be completed some time in January, with the first tournament scheduled for February, around Valentines Day. I would like to give a great many thanks to our board members, the numerous number of people at FSW that put in many hours to bring our vision to what I hope will be a great facility for both our local community and the great number of tourists that visit us every year,Ž said Ted Kegeris, PicklePlex president. Finally, I would like to thank the numerous people that contributed to this effort, whether it be their time and efforts or a monetary contribution. Pickle on!Ž Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the United States, and its popularity has been embraced by all age groups. High School students have already expressed their interest in using the 16 courts when theyre ready for use. We are looking forward to working with the college in their hospitality program,Ž said Gloria Reilly, PicklePlex board member. The PicklePlex plans on hosting several tournaments and pickleball events that will increase tourism and positively impact the economy of Charlotte County.Ž The second phase includes the building of 16 additional courts, a concession stand and bathrooms. Im excited with our FSW partnership and particularly looking forward to having activities for our Charlotte County youth once PicklePlex is completed,Ž said Sue Carman, PicklePlex board member.

If I didnt teach you something, and youre not doing something I want you to do, thats my fault.Ž Winkler enjoys watching the student-athletes develop, their evolution process as they begin to “gure things out and become creative. As the Tarpons head coach, Winkler, emphasizes its the players team, and though hell push them to do their optimal best, however, the outcome is contingent on the players who compose the roster. Ultimately, the responsibility is on the kids,Ž said Winkler. When they end up taking on more responsibility, we end up being more successful.Ž The transition to Florida was an easy one for Winkler, who fell in love with the state, and when the last of his four sons graduated from college, he and his wife made the decision to relocate to the Sunshine State. We didnt want to be in the cold weather anymore,Ž said Winkler. The Wisconsin Large School Coach of the Year in 2004, Winkler accepted the position as girls soccer coach at George Jenkins High School, after relocating to Florida. However, Winkler and his wife wanted to be closer to the Gulf of Mexico. His objective was to “nd a coaching position in Charlotte County, but there wasnt anything available. Winkler was teaching at SouthWestern Collegiate High School in Punta Gorda, when he accepted the boys soccer coaching position at Ida Baker, a post he would hold for two years. That was kind of tough because it was a long commute,Ž said Winkler. I wasnt connected enough to the school. I think part of my success is that Ive been able to talk to kids. Weve been able to get together outside of soccer for different activities. It was really dif“cult to do with that kind of commute.Ž A published author, Winkler took a year off from coaching to work on a non-soccer book with his wife. However, Winkler is the author of a sports related book Coaching a Season of Signi“cance. I told my wife, Im only going back to coaching if something opens up in Charlotte. I want to be part of the community. I want to be close to the school that I coach at. Charlotte would be the perfect situation. So fortunately, something opened up, and I was able to get in touch with Coach Nolan.Ž For Winkler, there are several critical components to being a great coach, and one thing he emphasizes is relationships. He tries to create bonds with parents and players. Im an educator, and I think a good teacher is a good coach,Ž said Winkler. If youre a good coach, youre probably a pretty good teacher. The kids, whatever youre trying to teach them, theyre picking it up.Ž And for Winkler, who had initially wanted to be a varsity wrestling coach in Wisconsin, the success hes enjoyed as a soccer coach is even more satisfying. Wrestlings an individual sport,Ž said Winkler. I like that sport because its just you. Your success is based on how hard you work, and the things youre willing to do to get better. You dont have to rely on teammates who maybe dont have the same kind of love for it you do, to be successful as an individual. (With soccer) its trying to get the team to work as one, and to be able to sacri“ce for each other, and to hold each other accountable. There are differences between football and soccer, and Winkler was able to make the successful transition between sports. Football was more like a chess match,Ž said Winkler. Im trying to out coach the other guy, trying to “gure out what hes doing; trying to come up with a scheme to stop it, or at halftime make an adjustment. Soccer, we have to know everything ahead of time. I think its a little bit different in that way, in that the knowledge has to be given to them, and we have to practice situations, and they have to take the ball and run with it.Ž Winkler has embraced life in Punta Gorda. Its his intention to get his team involved in the community with a number of service related projects. Its so much easier being close to the school that I can get there in a couple of minutes,Ž said Winkler. My wife and I were a big part of the community that we came from because of soccer.ŽWINKLERFROM PAGE 1 SUBMITTED PHOTO Greg Winkler, pictured with his wife Vikki, is the new boys soccer coach at Charlotte High School.

Page 4 SP The Sun | Monday, October 8, 2018By PAT GRAHAMAP SPORTS WRITERDENVER „ The 38-year-old journeyman catcher looked to his left and spotted his Milwaukee Brewers teammates spilling out of the dugout. Erik Kratz then looked straight ahead and saw his reliever standing alone. So he took off for Josh Hader to give him, the biggest hug. ... Because you celebrate all your celebrations. Because you never know if youre going to get another one,Ž Kratz said. Wade Miley pitched masterfully into the “fth inning before turning it over to a lights-out Milwaukee bullpen Kratz kept up his torrid hitting and the Brewers beat the Colorado Rockies 6-0 in Game 3 on a cool, misty Sunday to sweep their NL Division Series. The Brewers have won 11 straight dating to the regular season and advance to their “rst NL Championship Series since 2011. They will play the winner of the Dodgers-Braves series, starting Friday at Miller Park „ by the time that game starts, it will have been nearly three weeks since Milwaukee lost. One at a time, man. Thats what weve been saying, one at a time,Ž NL MVP candidate Christian Yelich said. Focus on the now.Ž In between sprays of sparkling wine inside the clubhouse, a chant rose up for Yelich: M-V-P! M-V-P!Ž No surprise, after the season he had. But then the team started chanting the same thing for Kratz. That might be the champagne talking,Ž Kratz cracked. With manager Craig Counsell making all the right moves, Milwaukees pitching staff held Nolan Arenado, Trevor Story and the bruising Rockies to a combined two runs and 14 hits in the series. Of the 28 innings in the matchup, Colorado scored in only one of them. The story of the series for us was certainly our pitching,Ž Counsell said. Its been that way for a couple weeks now, including Milwaukees 3-1 win over the Cubs at Wrigley Field last Monday in the NL Central tiebreaker. The next day, the Rockies outlasted the Cubs 2-1 in 13 innings to win the wild-card game. Making his postseason debut, Miley toughed the elements „ he wore short sleeves when the temperature was 46 degrees „ and was even tougher on Rockies hitters. The wily left-hander allowed three hits over 4 2/3 innings. A procession of “ve Brewers relievers allowed one hit the rest of the way. With two on, Hader got Ian Desmond to ”y out to end the ninth and start an on-“eld celebration. The “rst one to greet Hader was Kratz, who made his second postseason start and “nished 3 for 4 with a double. Acquired from the New York Yankees in May for a player to be named, Kratz is making quite a name for himself in the playoffs. He went 5 for 8 in the series. I really feel like Ive played my last game for the last 12 years because the game doesnt owe anybody anything,Ž Kratz said. When you understand that you appreciate these times more than anything else.Ž Orlando Arcia and Keon Broxton hit back-to-back homers in the ninth off Wade Davis to make it 6-0 and end any sort of drama. Jesus Aguilar had a solo shot in the fourth off German Marquez that Counsell sort of predicted. The Brewers manager said Saturday, Aggie is going to hit a home run in the playoffs, a big homer with men on base, I promise.Ž Granted, it wasnt with men on base. But it was still big and gave the Brewers a 2-0 lead. That was more than enough against a Colorado offense that was shut out twice in the series and hit .146 against M ilwaukees stingy pitching. Colorados three All-Stars „ Story, Arenado and Charlie Blackmon „ “nished the series with a combined “ve hits. We got into the dance. We fought, but we might not have played our best,Ž Rockies manager Bud Black said. Part of that is the opposition, how they played.Ž This is how well it went for the Brewers on the drizzly day: They scored twice in the sixth without a hit „ one on a balk and another on a wild pitch, with Kratz lumbering home for the second run. The 31-year-old Miley endured a bumpy season that saw him suffer a strained groin in March and later miss two months with a right oblique strain. He bottled up the Rockies with a cutter, curve and an effective change. Marquez went “ve innings and allowed two runs before being lifted for a pinch-hitter. He got the start over Denver native Kyle Freeland, whose 2.40 at Coors Field this season was the lowest mark for a starter in franchise history. Everyone wants to be the guy that takes the ball or has a big at-bat or makes a big play in the “eld,Ž Freeland said. Unfortunately, we werent able to get a win. It stinks a little bit that I wasnt able to pitch here at home.ŽTHIS & THATArenado wore a ski mask late in the game due to the cool conditions. ... OF Carlos Gonzalez lost the grip on his bat in the ninth and it wound up in the screen by the Rockies dugout. ... The Rockies have lost 11 of their last 13 postseason games.COOL BATSThe Rockies “nished 1 for 17 with runners in scoring position. You saw a lot of guys chasing bad pitches, including myself,Ž out“elder Carlos Gonzalez said. We were anxious.

Severino was 10-2 with a 2.74 ERA and .217 opponents batting average at home, just 9-6 with a 3.99 ERA and .257 opponents batting average on the road. Maybe my wife cooks better food here,Ž he said. New York is 19-9 in the postseason at new Yankee Stadium, where boisterous Bronx crowds try to intimidate. The Yankees were 53-28 there during the regular season, the second-best home record behind Bostons 57-24. The win over Oakland in last weeks wild-card game improved New York to 7-0 at home in the postseason since the start of the 2017 playoffs. The fans, theyre out there on the “eld with you,Ž Judge said. Every single pitch theyre locked in. Its electric.Ž New York is built for Yankee Stadium, where it takes advantage of the short right-“eld porch and hit 144 of its record 267 home runs. Boston is constructed in a similar fashion, knowing half its games are played in front of Fenways Green Monster lurking in left “eld. Two places that are historic franchises where the fans are de“nitely rowdy for their home team and against the visiting team,Ž Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes said This will be the “rst postseason game in the Bronx between the rivals since Boston won Games 6 and 7 of the 2004 AL Championship Series across the street at old Yankee Stadium, becoming the “rst major league team to overcome a 3-0 de“cit in a best-of-seven postseason series. All empires fall sooner or later,Ž then-Red Sox president Larry Lucchino said that night. A year earlier, Boones 11th-inning homer off Tim Wake“eld won Game 7 and the AL pennant. Now hes a rookie manager, leading a group of Baby Bombers that reached Game 7 of the AL Championship Series last year before losing to Houston. This fan base I feel like absolutely connected with kind of this new generation of Yankee player, this young corps that has developed,Ž Boone said Me watching from afar last year, especially in the postseason, you could kind of see that raw intensity connection that the fan base had with the players.Ž For all the focus on big boppers, J.D. Martinez, Mookie Betts and Andrew Benintendi for Boston, and Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and Gary Sanchez for New York, relievers have reigned in an error when starting pitchers often are shown the exit before they have a chance to stumble too much. New Yorks bullpen has allowed one run in 10 innings, led by Dellin Betances, Zach Britton and Aroldis Chapman. Red Sox relievers have given up “ve in 11 innings. Hoping for a deep outing, Boston manager Alex Cora selected Eovaldi for Game 3 over Rick Porcello, who pitched two-thirds of an inning of relief in Fridays opener and now will match up against 38-year-old lefthander CC Sabathia in Game 4. Eovaldi was 3-3 with a 3.33 in 11 starts and one relief appearance for the Red Sox, who acquired him from Tampa Bay in July. The 28-year-old right-hander, who throws at 97-98 mph, allowed no earned runs in three of four starts this year against the Yankees. He pitched for New York in 2015 and 16 before injuring his elbow, which required Tommy John surgery for the second time. His goal is to keep bats and fans quiet. Trying to keep the ball in the ballpark „ try and get quick outs, try not to let the crowd get too crazy and get behind them and get them going,Ž he said. Cora and the Red Sox wouldnt sound off about Judges musical taste „ not that they could hear the famous Kander and Ebb song on Fenways concourse through thick clubhouse walls after the 6-2 win in Game 2. Thats probably just something they do when they win,Ž the manager said. Yankees players were ready for familiar sounds when the series resume. Its been a while since Boston played Yankees in the playoffs. So the fans are going to be excited,Ž Betances said. They were pretty loud for that Oakland game. This is going to be a little crazier for this Boston game, for sure.ŽJudge blares New York, New York, as Red Sox head to BronxBy KRISTIE RIEKENAP SPORTS WRITERHOUSTON (AP) „ Ask any Houston Astro and theyll say the same thing: Alex Bregman was made for these moments. The young third baseman was great for the defending champions all season and now that the calendar has ”ipped to October hes taken his play to another level, slugging two home runs to help Houston to a 2-0 lead in the AL Division Series against the Indians. He loves the bright lights,Ž praised George Springer, MVP of the World Series last year. He loves the big stage ... he believes he should get a hit every time or make the big play or score the big run. Thats just who he is and when you have a guy like that it makes you want to do the same thing.Ž Game 3 is Monday in Cleveland. The 24-year-old Bregman had the best year of his career this season, leading the AL with a career-high 51 doubles, and setting career marks by hitting .286 with 31 homers and 103 RBIs. His breakout season helped carry the offense in a year where last years MVP Jose Altuve and shortstop Carlos Correa struggled with injuries. He brings joy to the team,Ž Altuve said. He shows up here and lets everybody know hes ready to play and ... you see how he plays and youre like: OK. I want to join him, and I want to play at the same level hes playing.Ž Bregman gave Houston its “rst run of the playoffs this season when he hit a solo homer off Corey Kluber in the fourth inning of Game 1 on Friday. It was the “rst of four homers hit by the Astros in a 7-2 win. The Astros were up by 1 in Game 2 on Saturday when Bregman connected off Trevor Bauer with two outs and none on in the seventh to add some insurance in the 3-1 victory. This is what its all about,Ž Bregman said. This type of baseball is a blast. Everybody in that clubhouse is living and dying on every pitch. Its fun to play these types of games.Ž Bregman, the second overall pick in the 2015 draft, hit four homers and drove in 10 runs in his postseason debut last season to help the Astros to their “rst World Series title. Selected as an All-Star for the “rst time, he hit a tiebreaking home run in the 10th inning at Nationals Park in July that sent the AL to victory. Bregman never seems daunted by important moments despite having played just two full seasons in the majors. Manager AJ Hinch said Bregman has a calm heartbeatŽ and he knows the Astros can always count on him when they need a big play whether it be on offense or defense. I love how he describes pressure. He describes pressure as a privilege,Ž Hinch said. That, to me, shows someone that gets it, someone that is going to be able to handle the moment.Ž Though Hinch and the Astros have come to expect this level of play from the former LSU standout, the manager sometimes takes a step back simply to appreciate his greatness. Its amazing to watch him do it time after time after time,Ž Hinch said. Were getting spoiled. Guys arent supposed to do it at this level at that rate hes been doing.Ž Altuve, who became the “rst Astro to win MVP since Jeff Bagwell collected the National League award in 1994, has been wowed by Bregmans development this season. In a stacked MVP race led by Bostons Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez and Angels star Mike Trout, Altuve believes that his teammates season was the most impressive. Bregman does something big for us every single game,Ž Altuve said. Hes the kind of player that you really want to have on your team. He had an MVP season. Hes my MVP.Ž Bregman isnt interested in discussing individual awards and accolades and says his only focus is helping the Astros repeat as champions. And as much as hes done so far, hes constantly working to do more and get better. This was de“nitely, de“nitely something I envisioned doing, (but) I think theres so much room to improve on both sides of the ball, and I look forward to working on it,Ž he said.The bigger the stage, the brighter Bregman shines MLB: Boston at N.Y.

Page 6 SP The Sun | Monday, October 8, 2018By RALPH D. RUSSOAP COLLEGE FOOTBALL WRITERNotre Dame moved into the top “ve, Texas and UCF reached the top 10 and the Southeastern Conference placed a season-high eight teams in the latest Associated Press college football poll. After three teams in the top eight and eight ranked teams overall lost on Saturday, there was signi“cant movement throughout the AP Top 25 except in the “rst four spots. Alabama stayed No. 1, with 59 “rst-place votes and Georgia remained No. 2. No. 3 Ohio State and No. 4 Clemson each received a “rst-place vote from the media panel. Notre Dame reached a season-high “fth after beating Virginia Tech on Saturday night. Texas jumped 10 spots to No. 9 after beating Oklahoma. The Longhorns are in the top 10 for the “rst time since Sept. 19, 2010, when they reached No. 7. No. 10 UCF has never been ranked higher during the regular season. The Knights, who have the nations longest winning streak at 18 games, “nished last season unbeaten and at No. 6. The SECs eight teams are the most by a conference since the SEC had eight on Oct. 16, 2016. The record for most teams in the AP Top 25 for one conference is 10 by the SEC on Sept. 8, 2015.POLL POINTSFor the “rst time this season, every unbeaten FBS team is ranked. After LSU, Oklahoma and Kentucky lost on Saturday, there are 11 undefeated teams left. The new unbeatens to join the rankings were both from the American Athletic Conference: No. 23 South Florida (5-0) and No. 25 Cincinnati (6-0). The Bulls “nished each of the last two seasons ranked, but for the Bearcats 2018 has been a turnaround season for second-year coach Luke Fickell. Cincinnati is bowl eligible for the “rst time since 2015 and ranked for the “rst time since Oct. 14, 2012. Including UCF, the American has three ranked teams, as many as the Atlantic Coast Conference, Big 12 and Pac-12. Re-entering the rankings were No. 22 Texas A&M and No. 24 Mississippi State from the SEC.OUT„ Stanford lost for the second straight week and dropped out for the “rst time this season. „ Michigan States second loss sent it out of the rankings for the “rst time. „ Virginia Tech and Oklahoma State both lost for a second time and dropped out again after re-entering just last week. CONFERENCE CALLSEC „ 8 teams (1, 2, 13, 14, 18, 21, 22, 24). Big Ten „ 4 (3, 8, 12, 14). ACC „ 3 (4, 16, 20). American „ 3 (10, 23, 25). Big 12 „ 3 (6, 9, 11). Pac-12 „ 3 (7, 17, 19).

The Bulldogs have had a smooth ride so far, but this is the “rst of three games in four weeks that will likely determine if they can repeat as SEC East champions. No. 7 Washington at No. 17 Oregon.

By JOEY KNIGHTTAMPA BAY TIMESThe Bulls may be winning ugly these days, but theyre sitting prettier in the national consciousness than they have since the end of the 2017 season. USF (5-0), a 58-42 winner Saturday at UMass, has cracked the latest Associated Press rankings, checking in at No. 23. Its the Bulls “rst appearance since the “nal 17 poll, where they “nished 21st. Complementing the ranking is the national attention being showered upon Bulls TB Jordan Cronkrite. The University of Florida transfer, who set a USF and American Athletic Conference single-game record with his 302-yard rushing performance against the Minutemen, was named to the Pro Football Focus Week 6 National Team of the Week. He also received a helmet sticker on ESPNs College Football Final. And hes a virtual lock to also be named AAC Offensive Player of the Week on Monday. Elsewhere in the AP poll, Florida (5-1) catapulted eight spots „ to No. 14 „ following its 27-19 upset of then-No. 5 LSU in Gainesville. The Tigers fell eight spots to 13th. UCF (5-0) climbed into the top 10 (up two spots from last week) following its 48-20 rout of SMU for its 18th consecutive triumph. Miamis dramatic 28-27 come-from-behind home win against FSU pushed the Canes (5-1) up only one spot, to 16th.Unbeaten USF cracks Associated Press top 25 poll TAMPA BAY TIMES PHOTOUSF running back Jordan Cronkrite carries the ball. By MARK LONGAP SPORTS WRITERGAINESVILLE, Fla. „ Jump pass. Double pass. Rocker step. Throwback toss. Those are apparently just a glimpse into Dan Mullens playbook. The “rst-year Florida coach has turned to a little trickery to help the 14thranked Gators mask their offensive de“ciencies. Daring DanŽ is perfect on the season with them, too. His latest play-calling masterpiece came Saturday against LSU. Mullen dialed up a throwback pass from seldom-used tight end Lucas Krull a former left-hander pitcher at Arkansas, to quarterback Feleipe Franks that set up the go-ahead touchdown in a 27-19 victory. The timing was impeccable. The execution was ”awless. The outcome was something Florida players and coaches are starting to expect. A week earlier, the Gators used a double pass nicknamed KodakŽ to beat Mississippi State 13-6 The play was named after rapper and Florida fan Kodak Black. So what about Krulls 15-yard completion to Franks? Thats just called throwback,Ž Mullen said. We have some cool, other plays in there. ... It was one that we had a long time ago. I wasnt smart enough to create cool names for plays until about four or “ve years ago. Thats just one weve had for a long, long time. But, sorry. Ive got to be more creative than just throwback.Ž No one will mind plain as long as its productive. And the Gators (5-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) have been productive while winning three straight. It hasnt been particularly pretty on offense, mostly because the teams line is a work in progress and Franks is far from a polished passer. Mullen, to his credit, has found ways to get the most out of both. Hes not asking the line to try to manhandle more physical fronts in a league “lled with them, and he has Franks making quick reads and, if nobody is open, scrambling for yards. Add in some deception, and Mullen and the Gators are doing enough to complement a stout defense that continues to be the backbone of the team Hes got every trick in the bag and he knows when to call the right play at the right time,Ž Krull said. Hes tremendous at what he does.Ž On a “rst-and-10 play at the LSU 17 and trailing 19-14, the 6-foot-6 Krull started in motion from right to left, took a handoff that resembled an end-around and then pulled up and ”oated a pass back to Franks, who had slipped into the ”at mostly unnoticed. Franks was tackled at the 2, setting up Lamical Perines touchdown run on the next play. I was hoping someone would run with me and Id kind of snatch it off someones head or something like that (and) make SportsCenter top plays,Ž Franks said. It certainly will end up on Franks growing highlight reel. He threw a jump pass for a touchdown in the season opener stirring memories of Florida great Tim Tebow. Franks started the double pass last week, the one that ended with Kadarius Toneys 20-yard TD toss to Moral Stephens. Franks 13th touchdown pass of the season came Saturday on a rocker step to Stephens, another play Tebow made famous at Florida. Franks took the shotgun snap, stepped toward the line of scrimmage like he was about to tuck it and run, and then rocked back and completed a 3-yarder to Stephens. It wasnt really an ode to Tebow,Ž Mullen said. It was an ode to score touchdowns. When you get down in there, you got to defend the quarterback because were willing to run the quarterback, and Feleipe is a willing runner. So all of the sudden that adds an extra person. Eyes get caught to him, people lost man coverage and we get somebody wide open in the end zone.Ž Mullen insists there are plenty more wrinkles in his playbook. Others could show up Saturday at Vanderbilt (3-3, 0-2), which has dropped 26 of the last 27 in the series. We have a bunch of them and you practice them,Ž Mullen said. Its more about your comfort level at executing it because its a big risk-reward play. You pick trick plays for certain defenses, certain looks, how they “t. Weve got a bunch more in the back pocket for when the time calls. If you call it at the right time and it works, you look like a genius, right? Or you call it and it doesnt work and: That guys an idiot. How did they think that would work? Its a lot about timing.ŽMullen finding a knack for trick plays at No. 14 Florida near the end zone to stop Cincinnatis opening drive, Vincent Taylor blocked a Bengals “eld goal attempt, and Jakeem Grant returned a punt 70 yards for a touchdown. Tannehill also put together a 95-yard drive for the other touchdown, culminating with his 22-yard pass to running back Kenyan Drake.

Bortles was strip-sacked on the first play of their next possession, and he threw the pick-6 to Jones on the first play of the next. Jacksonvilles calamitous half ended when Bortles, trying to force a pass into the end zone, instead bounced it off his offensive linemans helmet and right to Steven Nelson for another interception. In Bortles defense, his offensive line didnt give him a whole lot of time. He was sacked five times and the Chiefs had another 11 hurries, spending most of the game right in his face. Bortles only real highlight came late in the game, when he escaped the collapsing pocket and angled toward the sideline, then lowered his shoulder to finish off a 21-yard touchdown run The Jaguars recovered the onside kick, only for the Chiefs to force another turnover on downs.STATS AND STREAKSThe Chiefs first TD was the first allowed by Jacksonville on a teams opening possession. ...

The Sun | Monday, October 8, 2018 SP Page 7 CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) „ Graham Gano connected on a career-long 63-yard “eld goal with 1 second remaining to lift the Carolina Panthers to a wild 33-31 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday. Ganos winning kick, tied for second longest in league history, came after the Giants erased a 14-point de“cit. Eli Manning hooked up with Saquon Barkley on a 15-yard touchdown pass down the right sideline „ the rookie made a long dive into the end zone „ to put the Giants in front 31-30 with 1:08 remaining. Ganos previous career long was 59 yards. He was 4 for 4 on “eld goal attempts and has made 35 in a row at home dating back to 2016. Its the second year in a row the Giants (1-4) have been beaten by a monster “eld goal at the end. In the third game last season, Jake Elliott of the Eagles kicked a 61-yarder for a 27-24 win.Browns 12, Ravens 9, OTCLEVELAND (AP) „ Rookie Greg Josephs 37-yard “eld goal „ a knuckleball that barely cleared the crossbar „ with 2 seconds left in overtime. After rookie quarterback Baker May“eld drove the Browns (2-2-1) into position, Joseph, signed after Week 2 following Zane Gonzalezs release, lined his kick through the uprights to give Cleveland its “rst AFC North win in 19 tries. As Browns fans celebrated just the teams second win in two seasons, Joseph was mobbed by his teammates following Clevelands third OT game in “ve weeks. The Ravens (3-2) had plenty of chances, but Joe Flacco threw a costly interception in the “rst half and the Browns blocked one of Justin Tuckers “eld goal tries.Vikings 23, Eagles 21PHILADELPHIA (AP) „ Kirk Cousins threw for 301 yards and one touchdown, Linval Joseph returned a fumble 64 yards for a score and the Vikings won a rematch of last seasons NFC championship game. Carson Wentz and the rest of Philadelphias offense again struggled as the defending Super Bowl champions fell to 2-3. Nick Foles led the Eagles to a 38-7 rout over Case Keenum and Minnesotas top-ranked defense in the title game on his way to earning MVP honors against New England. Trying to rally from a 17-point de“cit midway through the third quarter, the Eagles were set up to take the lead after Roc Thomas dropped a backward pass and Nigel Bradham recovered the fumble at the Vikings 30 in the fourth quarter. But Wentz was called for intentional grounding and coach Doug Pederson elected not to let Jake Elliott try a 58-yarder.Rams 33, Seahawks 31SEATTLE (AP) „ Todd Gurley rushed for three touchdowns, Jared Goff passed for 321 yards and a score and the Rams remained unbeaten. Playing without their top two receivers due to concussions suffered late in the “rst half, the Rams leaned heavily on Goff, Gurley and wide receiver Robert Woods to escape Seattle and improve to 5-0. Gurley scored on a 2-yard run in the “rst quarter, and added TDs of 2 and 5 yards in the second half. Gurleys third rushing TD on the second play of the fourth quarter pulled the Rams within 31-30. But new kicker Cairo Santos hooked the extra point attempt and Seattle maintained a one-point lead.Chargers 26, Raiders 10CARSON, Calif. (AP) „ Philip Rivers threw for 339 yards and two touchdowns, the 59th 300-yard passing game of Rivers 15-year career and his eighth against the Raiders. He completed 22 of 27 passes and had a passer rating of 143.4. Melvin Gordon had 120 yards from scrimmage (58 rushing, 62 receiving). His 1-yard run during the second quarter gave Los Angeles (3-2) a 17-3 lead at halftime.Cardinals 28, 49Ers 18SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) „ Josh Rosen threw a 75-yard touchdown pass to fellow rookie Christian Kirk on Arizonas “rst play from scrimmage and the Cardinals used “ve takeaways to get their “rst win. The Cardinals (1-4) were unable to do much more on offense the rest of the way, with their only other scores coming on Josh Bynes fumble return for a TD and David Johnson TD runs on two short drives after turnovers by the 49ers (1-4). But that proved enough against a San Francisco offense that did little after an opening drive score behind backup quarterback C.J. Beathard.Lions 31, Packers 23DETROIT (AP) „ Matthew Stafford threw two touchdown passes and LeGarrette Blount ran for two scores. Detroit (2-3) earned a win it desperately needed under “rst-year coach Matt Patricia, going into its bye week. Green Bay (2-2-1) could not overcome uncharacteristic mistakes by veteran kicker Mason Crosby and two-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers, who lost two fumbles for just the third time in his 14-year career. Crosby missed a career-high four “eld goals in one game and botched an extra point to boot.Jets 34, Broncos 16EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) „ Isaiah Crowell ran for a franchise-record 219 yards, including a 77-yard touchdown, and Sam Darnold threw two TD passes to Robby Anderson, including a 76-yarder. Darnold also had a TD toss to Terrelle Pryor that sealed the game late in the fourth quarter for the Jets (2-3). The rookie quarterback “nished 10 of 22 for 198 yards and the three scores with an interception to help New York to its “rst win since the season opener. Crowell needed just 15 carries to break the team record of 210 yards rushing set by Thomas Jones in 2009 against Buffalo. New York “nished with 323 yards rushing and 512 overall yards. The Jets defense came up big, too, while playing without coordinator Kacy Rodgers, who is dealing with what coach Todd Bowles has called a seriousŽ illness. Bowles ran the defense against the Broncos and the Jets kept the pressure on Keenum all game, sacking him four times, two by Leonard Williams. They nearly had one more big play when Marcus Maye intercepted Keenums “nal pass and returned it 104 yards before being taken down by Courtland Sutton at the 1 to end the game.Steelers 41, Falcons 17PITTSBURGH (AP) „ Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown connected on two second-half touchdowns and the Steelers pulled away from the Falcons. Roethlisberger “nished 19 of 29 for 250 yards and three scores, including a 9-yard strike to Brown in the third quarter and a 47-yard dart to the All-Pro wide receiver early in the fourth as Pittsburgh (2-2-1) put together its most complete performance of the season. Brown caught six passes for 101 yards. His two touchdowns gave him 64 in his career, moving him past Hall of Famer John Stallworth and into second place on the franchises all-time TD reception list.Bills 13, Titans 12ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) „ Stephen Hauschka hit a 46-yard “eld goal as time expired. Buffalos defense forced three turnovers, and LeSean McCoy broke from a September slump with a season-best 85 yards rushing. McCoy sparked the decisive drive with a 13-yard catch on third-and-3. And backup running back Chris Ivory had a 9-yard run in getting the Bills across mid“eld. Rookie quarterback Josh Allen scored on a 14-yard touchdown run but was held in check as a passer. He “nished 10 of 19 for 82 yards and an interception. Buffalo (2-3) bounced back from a 22-0 loss at Green Bay last weekend. The Titans struggled on offense in failing to build off a 26-23 overtime win over the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles. After winning each of its past three by three points, Tennessee (3-2) found itself on the losing end of a tightly played game in which the kickers accounted for six “eld goals and the teams combined for 444 yards offense.Ganos 63-yarder for Panthers beats Giants AP PHOTOCarolina Panthers Graham Gano celebrates his game-winning “eld goal against the New York Giants.

When Nurmagomedov forced the biggest star in mixed martial arts to tap out Saturday night to end whats likely to be the most lucrative show in UFC history, he had fashioned the perfect response to McGregors verbal insults and physical attacks. But when Nurmagomedov promptly hurdled over the cage and fought with McGregors taunting cornermen while his own teammates ambushed McGregor in the octagon, the Russian champion and his friends might have seriously damaged careers that were just about to take off. These guys are in big trouble,Ž UFC President Dana White said. It is going to be ugly.Ž Executive director Bob Bennett said the Nevada Athletic Commission intends to “le a complaint following its investigation into the actions of Nurmagomedov and his team for setting off a post-“ght melee at UFC 229 immediately after McGregor submitted to Nurmagomedovs choke in the fourth round. Nurmagomedovs $2 million purse has been withheld, and he could face a hefty “ne along with a lengthy suspension. White said three members of Nurmagomedovs team were detained by police, but released after McGregor refused to press charges. White acknowledged Nurmagomedovs lightweight title could be stripped if his actions result in a signi“cant suspension. Theres going to be “nes,Ž White said. Theres going to be God knows what. Can these guys get visas to get back in the country? Well see how this plays out, but Ive been doing this for 18 years, and this is the biggest night ever, and I couldnt be more disappointed.Ž McGregors $3 million purse was not withheld after commission of“cials examined video footage and determined his side had done nothing wrong in the melee. While Nurmagomedov brawled with McGregor teammate Dillon Danis outside the cage, a few men from Nurmagomedovs camp „ at least two of whom appeared to be UFC “ghters, although the promotion and the commission havent formally identi“ed them „ climbed into the cage and confronted McGregor, who defended himself while getting sucker-punched from behind. McGregors “rst public response to the drama came on Twitter early Sunday morning: Good knock. Looking forward to the rematch.ŽUFC champ could face fine, suspension UFC: Llightweight title fightNAPA, Calif. (AP) „ Kevin Tway made a 10-foot birdie putt on the third hole of a playoff Sunday to win the season-opening Safeway Open for his “rst PGA Tour title. The son of eight-time PGA Tour winner Bob Tway, the 30-year-old former Oklahoma State player beat Ryan Moore on the par-4 10th after Brandt Snedeker dropped out on their second extra trip down the par-5 18th. After strong wind died down in the late afternoon on Silverados tree-lined North Course, Tway birdied the “nal two holes in regulation for a 1-under 71, then birdied all three holes in the playoff. In the playoff I made three birdies, so that was pretty good,Ž Tway said. Im kind of at a loss for words.Ž Moore birdied three of the last four in a 67. I didnt get off to the best start and my swing didnt feel that great,Ž Moore said. So I just had to grind a little bit and kind of “nd a little key for the day.Ž Snedeker, three strokes ahead entering the day and “ve in front with 11 to play, had four backnine bogeys in a 74. No one to blame but myself,Ž Snedeker tweeted. I have to “nd a way to win today.Ž The nine-time PGA Tour winner bogeyed the “rst three holes on the back nine, birdied the par-5 16th, bogeyed the par-4 17th and parred the 18th, missing from 9 feet. Phil Mickelson tied for 17th at 8 under after a 72. It was challenging but yet very playable conditions,Ž Mickelson said. Actually, I played pretty good. I hit two balls out of bounds on the “fth hole trying to go for the green, but other than that, I played pretty well.Ž Two-time defending champion Brendan Steele had a 75 to “nish at 3 under.Kevin Tway wins Sa feway Open playoff for 1st PGA Tour title GOLF: Safeway Open adno=3619089-1 5301 Heron Creek Blvd. North Port.
