Candidates for Florida Governor and U.S. Senate have either left their campaigns to lead disaster preparations from their elected ofces or have asked supporters to prepare and/or donate for what they expect to be a massive need. Forecasters expect Michael to come ashore on the Panhandle or Big Bend coast Wednesday as a Category 3 storm, bringing an eight to 12-foot storm surge in places. Both Gov. Rick Scott and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum returned to that city Monday to oversee disaster preparations. Scott issued an emergency disaster declaration for 35 Florida counties and issued a letter to the president, asking for a pre-landfall emergency for the entire state, according to the Tallahassee Democrat. Scott is challenging Democratic threeterm incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson for his Senate seat. The Tallahassee Democrat reported that Nelson also left the cam paign trail Monday to y to Tallahassee and meet with ofcials at the statewide Emergency Operations Center. On Monday, Nelson was not able to get into the Florida EOC, according to the Tallahassee Bureau of the Miami Herald/ Times which cited the heated election An in-depth look at Amendment 2 Florida TaxWatch has provided the 2018 Voter Guide to Floridas Constitutional Amendments in order to help educate voters on the issues before them on this Novembers ballot.

Amendment 2 Title Limitations on Property Tax Assessments Placed by 2017 Florida Legislature Amending Article XII, Section 27 Ballot Summary Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to permanently retain provisions currently in effect, which limit property tax assessment increases on specied nonhomestead real property, except for school district taxes, to 10 per cent each year. If approved, the amend ment removes the scheduled repeal of such provisions in 2019 and shall take effect January 1, 2019. A Yes Vote Means No change in current law. The 10 per cent cap on annual non-homestead prop erty tax assessments, which was approved by the voters in 2008 and is set to expire on Jan. 1, 2019, will be made permanent. A No Vote Means The 10 percent cap on annual AP approves War Dog Memorial By MARC VALERO STAFF WRITER AVON PARK The War Dog Memorial donation to the City from Battle of the Bands Inc. got nal approv al from the City Council after ve months of work ing out various issues. Anna Marie Feeney, pres ident of Battle of the Bands, announced that a ground breaking for the memorial, honoring servicemen and their dogs who served along side of them, will be held at noon Friday in front of the Citys Community Center at 310 W. Main St. Before the City Council approved the maintenance agreement for the monu ment, Feeney said this is a golden opportunity for the City because, years from now we will all be gone, but this monument will stand for our soldiers and their guardians. Addressing the City Council, Veterans Council of Highlands County President Elizabeth Waddell said this county is com prised of 20 percent veter ans and tax money comes from them. Their pensions and retirement funds go to support local businesses. I cant understand for one why you have thrown the bricks and IEDs [im provised explosive devices] in the path of the War Dog Memorial, she said. This is too important; these dogs saved many lives corpsman, Marines, Army. The monument is free to the City, but what the heck is going on, Waddell said. City Councilman Jim Barnard noted that he was a combat veteran in Vietnam and had a scout dog and has been support ing the monument effort for almost six months. It seems like it has dragged on and on, he said. I cant understand that when we have a gift given to us there has to be such a long legal delays. I believe we are at the point where we can move forward. Barnard made a motion to approve the revised version of the monuments maintenance agreement. City Attorney Glinda Pruitt had prepared the maintenance agreement, but attorney Gerald Buhr, representing Battle of the Bands, made revisions to the agreement. The City Council voted 3-1 to approve the agree ment. Councilwoman Dora Smith voted no stating she believed the placement location should be in Veterans Square. Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray was not in attendance. The War Dog Memorial will feature some simi larities to a monument in MARC VALERO/STAFF The groundbreaking for War Dog Memorial will be held at noon Friday in front of the Avon Park Community Center, 310 W. Main St. Force for good Graham has volunteered over 40 years at county jail By MELISSA MAIN STAFF WRITER SEBRING Bobbie Graham, 85, has been volunteering at the Highlands County Jail for 44 years, and she has helped thousands of women during some of the saddest and most anxious moments of their lives. Her visits bring hope, encourage ment and direction to women who have lost their way; these women need guidance and a smile to help put their lives on the right track again. I never ask the ladies what they did to get there, Graham said. Instead she teaches them about the Bible and tries to instill morals and values in them. These women need someone to talk to and encourage them in a better way of life, Graham said. I talk to them in a way that they can understand. Since the jail has people enter and leave on a daily basis, her Bible study attendance uctuates from six people to over 30 at any given time. Every Monday at 1 p.m. Graham vis its the jail. We have a series of DVDs that come from Twin Lakes Church in California, she said. Its all Bible, and it teaches them about what really matters and what doesnt. It teaches them how to live in a way that pleases God. The studies teach the ladies how to forgive, how to become a Christian and how to pray. Graham never imagined herself be coming a part of a jail ministry. A lady that went to Bible Fellowship Church named Dottie Heater was going to the jail. She asked me, Would you be interested in going? I told her, I dont think so, Graham said. It wasnt something I wanted to do. I had gone back and forth to prisons and jails across Florida visiting my brother. I was really worn out from that, and I didnt want to see a jail or prison again. Even though Graham was weary of prisons, she told Heater she would think about it. If you want to see what its like, meet me at the jail at 6 p.m. on Monday, Heater told her. I did go and meet her. I was saying, No, but the Lord was saying, Yes. Graham has been going to the jail every Monday since, except for a break to visit her family during the summer. Her Monday afternoon visits at 6 p.m. eventually changed to Mondays at 1 p.m. after her retirement. Graham didnt feel qualied to teach the women about the Bible when she rst started, because she only knew one Bible verse and had only been a Christian for one month. However, she had a heart for people. Bobbie Graham leads a Bible study for incarcerated women on Mondays at 1 p.m. She has been leading a Bible study for in the jail for over 40 years. COURTESY PHOTO/HIGHLANDS COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICE Bobbie Graham started volunteering at the Highlands County Jail in 1974, and she has been helping women who have come through the jail ever since. After I got started [at the jail], it seemed I couldnt stop. It was my passion. I couldnt wait for Monday to come again. I met some really nice women who wanted to listen and learn about God.

The accident ended with the drivers of two vehicles going to the emergency room because of injuries. The nature and seriousness of the injuries are unknown as of press time on Monday afternoon. Highlands County SheriffÂs deputies and Emergency Medical Services were the Â“ rst to arrive on scene. They were followed by the West Sebring Volunteer Fire Department. FHP took over the investigation upon arrival. Emergency vehicles and vehicles involved in the crash blocked both the west and eastbound lanes of Powerline Road for a time. A Utility Terrain Vehicle (Kubota) was driven by 51 year-old Richard Sanders. MaÂneshia Gilchrist, 21, drove a 2009 maroon Sebring Outlook sports utility vehicle. A third vehicle, a 2008 Ford pickup truck, was involved but was parked on the side of the road, bordering an orange grove. The truck had a CrutchÂ“ eld Groves emblem on the door. Both vehicles were appeared to be heading east on Powerline Road when they somehow collided. There was heavy damage to the front passenger side and lesser damage down the length of the passenger side of the SUV. When the SUV rested, it was blocking the westbound lane entirely and some of the eastbound lane, facing east. The Kubota UTV was in two pieces and landed on itÂs side, on the passengerÂs side of the vehicle. The nose of the vehicle was pointing westward. The driver was reportedly ejected. The back ÂbedÂŽ of the UTV was laying separately and upside down several feet away. A tank to hold liquid was also laying separately next to the Âbed.ÂŽ KIM LEATHERMAN/STAFFMaÂneshia Gilchrist drove this red SUV that collided with a Kubota Monday morning. She was sent to the hospital. The Monday crash is still under investigation but it appears as though the Kubota hit the parked Ford truck. Woman charged with stealing from ex-boyfriend, his momBy MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERAVON PARK Â„ A woman allegedly stole her ex-boyfriendÂs PlayStation 3, grinder and glass smoking pipe and his motherÂs 12-gauge pump action shotgun.

The victim, who reported the stolen items, also told deputies that her sonÂs ex-girlfriend Âhad knowledge of the shotgun being kept inside the camper trailer,ÂŽ the report states. Deputies examined Snapchat messages to the victimÂs son. Messages, which were partially redacted in the arrest report, mentioned the shotgun had been hiding in WigginsÂ closet. Deputies were also reportedly advised that Wiggins was in possession of her ex-boyfriendÂs marijuana ÂgrinderÂŽ valued at $70 and a Âbowl,ÂŽ or glass smoking pipe, valued at $20. These items were allegedly stolen from a black Ford F-150, which belonged to one of the victims.

Unfortunately, itÂs also entirely necessary, given that the Trump administration and Congress are more than happy to let internet providers restrict what we Â„ the American people Â„ can see and access online. Just on Sunday, the U.S, Justice Department sued to stop California from requiring Ânet neutrality,ÂŽ the concept of protecting full and equal access to the internet. ItÂs a sad day Â„ and a threat to our democracy Â„ when the federal government goes to bat for those who would squelch the free flow of information. Why is this a big worry? President Donald Trump and his administration have been all about attacking independent news sources and trying to reshape the media into a lapdog that supports all the presidentÂs policies. As much as the internet has been abused by bogus web and social media sites, an independent internet is an important part of maintaining an informed citizenry. Getting rid of net neutrality also means you might pay more for such things as streaming movies from particular sites. You might also suddenly find you canÂt go into competition with an established web-based company with your own web-based start-up because you donÂt have the deep pockets to pay for fast internet speeds. Last year, the Federal Communications Commission pulled back Obama-era rules to protect internet access. Several states, including Washington, Oregon and Vermont, have enacted some protections in response. But a bill California Gov. Jerry Brown signed on Sunday gives that state the nationÂs toughest laws protecting internet freedom. Average Americans have come to assume that the internet is a level playing field where they can go wherever they want. But the big internet service providers see an opportunity to make huge profits by speeding up connection speeds for companies willing to pay a premium while slowing down speeds for those who donÂt pay. That would put corporate entities in the position of deciding who gets information at what speed. Many valued voices on the internet could be throttled out of existence. ... Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan and 22 other state attorneys general earlier this year filed a lawsuit in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to overturn to FCC decision. Arguments in the lawsuit have been scheduled for February. At the time of the filing, Madigan said the repeal of net neutrality would allow internet service providers to block or slow access to some content and charge consumers to access certain sites. Telecommunication companies say they dread the thought of having to contend with a patchwork of internet access laws from state to state. No doubt. But the solution is not the wholesale dispensing with net neutrality. Rather, the companies should be leading the charge for a free and open internet. Net neutrality is one of many issues in which states suddenly find themselves having to take an activist stance on national policies so as to protect their residents. States also are stepping up on immigration, LGBTQ and environmental issues. They have been forced to do so by an administration and Congress that are failing to meet the needs and heed the wishes of average Americans.50-48Wow, sounds like the results of a very exciting football game, but in reality it was the Â“nal vote of your Senate in action. Candidate Kavanaugh was approved by this narrow vote, which of course, was right down the dreaded ... party line. [Mitch] McConnell told the Republicans to vote for him and [Chuck] Schumer told the Democrats not to vote for him. Ah, democracy in action. I canÂt believe that all Republicans think Kavanaugh is the best person to be on the Supreme Court. We elect 100 Senators to go to DC to speak for the rest of us in matters of state. However, once they arrive in Washington the two-party system sets in and instead of voting their conscience, they vote the party line with almost no crossing the mystical Âother side of the aisle.ÂŽ The two-party system is not working, and the only way to change some of the rancor in Washington is a strong third party and term limits. Now, I realize that is Âpie in the sky,ÂŽ but somehow the 535 people we send to Congress have got to be brought up short, and start working for us, not just themselves. The two parties have divergent ideas of what is best for the country and that is Â“ne, but it seems to me that they might be a little more accommodating to each others way of doing things and reach more compromising answers. The two-party line is a loser.Lowell Henline SebringThank youI am writing to say thank You to two wonderful ÂangelsÂŽ that were sent to rescue myself and companions on Saturday, Sept. 22. We were on our way to the Orlando airport and as we were leaving Avon Park, our right back tire picked up a piece of steel and went Â”at. We immediately called AAA, who would not be able to come for 90 minutes. While we were waiting, two gentlemen in a green pickup truck were on their way home from work when they noticed our dilemma and asked if we needed help. They were very pleasant and in the middle of the afternoonÂs very hot sun changed our tire and got us going within a half an hour. When we offered to give them some money to say thank you, they refused saying they were Christians and could not accept anything. We truly are so thankful and also think that we need to recognize that there are many good people in this world. Thank You!Elsie Howe Lake PlacidYOUR VIEW The 10 percent cap on annual non-homestead property tax assessments will expire on Jan. 1, 2019. Beginning with the 2019 tax year, all non-homestead property will be assessed at full market value, as determined by the property appraiser, and there will be no limit to the increase in future assessments. The Arguments Pros Repeal of the 10 percent non-homestead property assessment cap would result in an immediate, massive tax increase of up to $700 million annually. The current cap helps mitigate the multi-billion tax shift that FloridaÂs property tax system creates. The 10 percent cap provides much less protection than the Save Our Homes cap that applies to homestead property (the lesser of 3 percent or inÂ”ation). This shift is growing even with the 10 percent cap in place; if the cap is repealed the shift will skyrocket. Repeal of the cap would increase rents, as landlords will pass their increased taxes on to renters, further burdening a large portion of Florida families and making affordable housing an even more elusive goal in Florida. Repeal of the cap would increase taxes on businesses, resulting higher prices, fewer jobs, reduced salaries, and a weaker economy. The cap does not apply to school taxes so it does not impact school funding. The potential combination of voter approval of Amendment 1, but not Amendment 2, would magnify the negative impacts of repealing the non-homestead cap. Cons Florida should not have caps on the growth of property tax assessments as they limit the revenue producing capability of local governments. Repeal of this cap would provide additional revenue to fund government services. Assessment caps can create real estate market distortions and lead to unequal tax treatment of similarly situated property owners. This cap only beneÂ“ts businesses and other nonhomestead property while doing nothing for homestead property owners. Analysis The 10 percent cap on non-homestead property was approved by the voters in 2008. It was part of an amendment that made several changes to property taxation in Florida, including an additional $25,000 homestead exemption, and allowing for portability of Save Our Homes (SOH) beneÂ“ts. The amendment also included a scheduled repeal of the cap on January 1, 2019 (the other changes were permanent); however, the amendment also required the Legislature to place a proposed amendment on the 2018 General Election ballot to extend the cap, and the 2017 Legislature passed House Joint Resolution (HJR) 21 to do so. If the amendment is not approved by at least 60 percent of those voting, taxpayers will lose this important protection. This does not just mean there will no longer be a cap on future assessment growth, it means that non-homestead property will suddenly be assessed at full market value. The state estimated that if the cap is allowed to be repealed, the resultant tax increase in 2019 could be as high as $688.1 million (at the current average statewide non-school millage rate of 10.78 mills). Using newer property tax forecasts by the Revenue Estimating Conference, Florida TaxWatch estimates the potential tax increase exceeds $700 million. The adoption of the non-homestead assessment was, in part, a reaction to the Save Our Homes (SOH) amendment which was passed in 1992, as well as the 2008 amendment proving an additional homestead exemption and SOH portability. SOH created an inequitable property tax system in Florida. Not only can similarly situated homeowners have very different tax bills, but SOH also shifted billions of dollars in taxes from homestead to non-homestead property. This is because SOH does not really limit total taxes, it only limits assessments on one segment of taxpayers. This is especially true during times of strong home value growth. From 2000 to 2007, the average homestead tax bill (if under SOH the whole time) fell by 1.1 percent. The average non-homestead tax bill more than doubled, increasing 116 percent. Tax growth was even higher for just non-homestead residentialÂ„151 percent. This means that the growth in total property taxes levies from $14.3 billion in 2000 to $30.4 billion in 2007 was borne almost entirely by non-homestead property. The non-homestead assessment cap helps to limit the tax shift, which is still rising. Loss of the cap would escalate the growth of the shift. Fiscal Impact The Revenue Estimating Conference ofÂ“cially adopted an ÂŽindeterminateÂŽ impact since it is unknown if the amendment will be approved by the voters. If the constitutional amendment is approved, the Â“scal impact is zero. If not approved, the Conference adopted the following impact: property tax revenue increases of $688.1 million in 2019-20, $673.1 million in 2020-21, and $669.8 million in 2021-22. This is based on the current statewide average nonschool millage rate, and was made in March 2017. Using newer property tax forecasts by the Revenue Estimating Conference, Florida TaxWatch estimates the potential tax increase exceeds $700 million. Conclusion The 10 percent non-homestead assessment cap, created by the voters in 2008, helped to stem the multi-billiondollar tax shift from homestead to non-homestead properties that FloridaÂs property tax system currently creates. It is a relatively limited, but important, safeguard for renters, businesses, owners of vacant lands, snowbirds, and other second homeowners Â„ and it is the only significant one they have for real property. On average, non-homestead property is taxed at 91 percent of its just value, while SOH and numerous exemptions result in homestead property being taxed on 53 percent of its value. Loss of the non-homestead cap will result in a large tax increase of up to $700 million annually, which would have a serious impact on Florida, decreasing disposable income, increasing rents and business costs, and exacerbating and perpetuating the existing inequities of FloridaÂs property tax system. There would also be no limit on the growth of future assessments on nonhomestead property.AMENDMENTFROM PAGE 1A

Burnikel10/10/18TuesdayÂ’s Puzzle Solved10/10/18 CROSSWORD PUZZLES Her full-time job with the Highlands County School Board was as a liaison for the migrant population. She helped connect people with services for 24 years. Graham knew students from all over the county due to her work with the School Board, and she has met some of them again at the jail. ÂI had done some of the same stuff they were doing,ÂŽ Graham said. ÂI was partying and using bad language, but I stopped when I became a Christian. I knew there had to be a better way of life. ÂAfter I got started [at the jail], it seemed I couldnÂt stop,ÂŽ she said. ÂIt was my passion. I couldnÂt wait for Monday to come again. I met some really nice women who wanted to listen and learn about God.ÂŽ Years ago, Graham saw a girl she knew well from school. Her mom had been a teacher at the school. ÂShe was very excited to see me [at the jail Bible study]. She had saved up her medication and planned to kill herself, but she thought about what I would think about her doing that and she didnÂt do it. ÂShe was going to do it that Sunday night, and then she thought about what I would think when I came on Monday,ÂŽ she said. Graham was thankful that her presence at the jail saved the young womanÂs life. Graham tells the women, ÂI hope to see you in Burger King or Walmart and not back here again. ItÂs good to see them out. They donÂt have that worried and anxious look on their faces.ÂŽ One of the stories Graham remembers most is visiting a woman who was in isolation, because she had committed murder. The isolation cells at the former jail were narrow with just a bunk, toilet and sink. ÂThe woman had told a guard that she wanted to talk to me, so they put me in a cell with her and locked the door. ÂThe guard went to dinner,ÂŽ Graham said. ÂMe and the lady sat on the bunk and had a sincere talk. She had sort of snapped when she committed murder. ÂWhen I called for the guard to get me out, she wasnÂt there,ÂŽ Graham said. ÂThe inmates were banging on the bars and saying, ÂChurch lady wants to get out.Â The guard Â“nally remembered and apologized.ÂŽ Although that occurrence was a little discomforting, almost all of GrahamÂs interactions with the jail have been positive ones. ÂI am thankful they allow us to come in and visit with the inmates,ÂŽ she said. ÂThey are very hospitable. ÂThe guards are very nice,ÂŽ Graham said. ÂWe have an escort to go in and an escort to go out. The guards help us get to where we need to go, and they make an effort to keep us comfortable and safe. ÂWeÂve been learning Bible verses at the jail, and I was buying little cards with Bible verses on it to give to the ladies at the jail,ÂŽ Graham said. When the local Christian bookstores closed, she had trouble Â“nding printed Bible verses. ÂAdam Smehyl has been helping me make copies of Bible verses, so I can give them to the inmates,ÂŽ she said. ÂI have a lot of people who give me help and encouragement,ÂŽ Graham said. ÂI donÂt think I could do it without prayers and encouragement.ÂŽ Volunteering at the jail is not the only way Graham helps people. She also volunteers at Nu-Hope and Habitat for Humanity. Graham believes she will be like her friend Ruthie Webb who volunteered at the jail until three weeks before the Lord took her away. Webb passed away at age 96 or 97, Graham said. ÂIÂll probably be like Ruthie and go right up until the last,ÂŽ she said. ÂIÂm 85 and so far, so good. IÂm in good health.ÂŽGRAHAMFROM PAGE 1A MELISSA MAIN/STAFFBobbie Graham received a certiÂ“cation of appreciation from the Highlands County SheriÂs Oce for her volunteer work with female inmates at the jail.run between Nelson and Scott as a possible factor. Nelson was only able to speak with reporters outside the EOC, the Herald/Times reported. He kept comments to storm preparations and avoided all political talk, the paper stated. He also reportedly sent a letter for ScottÂs chief elections ofÂ“cial, requesting an extension of TuesdayÂs voter registration deadline to better accommodate people in 11 counties forced to evacuate for the storm. The Herald/Times reported a similar issue existed two years ago, during Hurricane Matthew, at which time U.S. District Judge Mark Walker issued an order to extend voter registration online. Scott called Michael a Âmonstrous hurricane,ÂŽ just hours away from landfall, and urged people to evacuate from low-lying areas, during to a press conference Tuesday morning broadcast by CNN. ÂDonÂt think you can ride this out if youÂre in a low-lying area,ÂŽ Nelson said. National Hurricane Center Director Ken Graham told CNN he is most worried about the storm surge from the Apalachicola area of the Florida Panhandle, past the Big Bend to Tampa Bay. The water on the coast is relatively shallow, Graham said, allowing water to build into huge waves, and the shape of the entire area is concave, trapping water. Graham said the sparsely-populated area of the Big Bend will see storm surges of eight to 12 feet, but that wonÂt let other heavily-populated areas off the hook. ÂTampa Bay, two to four feet, all the way to Pensacola, two to four feet,ÂŽ Graham said. He also said coastal river inlets will Â”ow backward as Michael gets closer to land. In Apalachicola, a small Panhandle town, Mayor Van Johnson Sr. said its 2,300 residents had Â“lled sandbags, boarded up homes, lined up to buy gas and groceries and were leaving what could be the hardest strike on the city in his life Â„ 59 years, the Herald/Times stated. Gillum, Democrat, also Â“lled sand bags with residents and urged them to prepare. He also requested 500-600 linemen Â„ well more than the 100 usually on staff for the city. One of the chief criticisms against him, according to the Tampa Bay Times has been how long it took to get power restored after Hurricane Hermine in 2016 for more than 100,000 people. The slow pace then set off a Â“ght between Gillum and Scott at the time, Tampa Bay Times stated. However, GillumÂs ofÂ“ce reports he spoke with Scott about the storm on Sunday afternoon. In fact, the mayor of Tallahassee is a ceremonial position. The city manager is responsible for running the city, Tampa Bay Times reported, and the call of whether or not to bring in extra power crews to help in 2016 fell to the cityÂs utility director. Since 2016, the city has signed mutual aid agreements with private utilities. Gillum is also in a tight race for governor with Ron DeSantis, Republican and former U.S. Representative for FloridaÂs 6th congressional district. DeSantis is still on the campaign trail, but has asked supporters to bring donations of water, food and other supplies to his events, for distribution after the storm hits. There has been no ofÂ“cial word from either Democrat Allen Ellison or Republican Greg Steube, candidates for U.S. House of Representatives, Florida District 17, on their involvement with disaster preparations.CANDIDATESFROM PAGE 1A For tee times call (863) 453-5210 Get PGA Golf Lessons by Jason Beatty.

A8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 10, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Old pavilion razed to make room for new By KIM LEATHERMAN STAFF WRITERLAKE PLACID Â„ The decrepit and dilapidated picnic pavilion at the Lake June Ball Fields near the boat dock was razed several days ago to make room for an entirely new waterfront project. The old pavilion had restrooms that were trashed beyond repair. The project will be done in three phases; removal of the old pavilion is the Â“rst step as the town gets ready to begin the project. According to Town Administrator Phil Williams, the latest acts of destructive vandalism was the straw that broke the proverbial camelÂs back. After the score boards were torn off the wall by vandals, Williams and Town Council members ordered the pavilion be torn down. ÂPolston Engineering is Â“nalizing the plans and ultimately we would like to have it out for bid with the bid closing date being sometime in late November,ÂŽ Williams said. ÂI had the ofÂ“ce staff call everyone who had the pavilion reserved for a party but a press notice would be better because a lot of people just show up without reserving, which is okay, but if someone had it reserved legitimately we would move the Â“rst party on.ÂŽ Once a contractor has been selected, two pavilions will be erected, a major and a minor one. A bathroom facility similar to the one in Stuart Park will be constructed. In the Â“nal phase, parking lot issues will be addressed. A new boat dock will also be part of the project in the third phase. The entire scope of the project is estimated to cost $500,000. The town sought and received several grants to help pay for the razing and replacing of the pavilion and bathroom and dock upgrades. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission grant, called the Florida Boating and Improvement Program Grant, will help to pay for the new dock and bathrooms. The Highlands County Tourist Development Council will also kick in for the bathrooms, which are located near Lake June, a popular tourist destination. Three roofs at the Lake June Ball Fields Complex were to be repaired by Wells RooÂ“ng. Only one roof was mostly completed before the owner, Robert ÂJimmyÂŽ Wells was arrested for allegedly defrauding dozens of residents by taking deposits of up to half the coast of roof repairs and not doing the work. The barn was only semi-complete. The pump house wood has rotted and the roof will need to be replaced. One of the pavilion-style picnic tables had a metal roof that was peeled back like a sardine can. Recreation Supervisor Harry Durbano has proven to be handy with tools and his imagination. As workers were tearing down the old pavilion, Durbano noticed that the roof was metal and was able to recycle the material. ÂThe old pavilionÂs roof was metal and there wasnÂt anything wrong with it,ÂŽ Durbano said. ÂI just cut it and replaced it. The wood holding up the roof was Â“ne; it wasnÂt rotted. I will have to get to the pump house too. The wood on that one is pretty badly rotted though. It will take a little extra time.ÂŽ Durbano is also the same person who built the announcerÂs box at the Miracle League Â“eld. COURTESY PHOTOSSeen here is the newly roofed pavilion, which Recreation Supervisor Harry Durbano fashioned from the metal roof of the large old pavilion that was razed. The roof over this picnic table was torn after Hurricane Irma came through Highlands County last September.

www.highlandsnewssun.com October 10, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A9Highlands: 9 percent of teachers assigned out-of-fieldBy MARC VALEROSTAFF WRITERSEBRING Â„ The Highlands School District has 9 percent of its teachers assigned to duties in a subject outside the Â“eld in which they are certiÂ“ed to teach. A listing on the districtÂs website shows 79 teachers out of 881 teaching out-of-Â“eld. That number is down from one of the recent high points in 2015 when 11 percent (98 out of 890) were teaching out-of-Â“eld. The recent low point was in 2014 when 4.6 percent (41 out of 889) listed as teaching out-of-Â“eld. The district notes that the listed teachers are certiÂ“ed, buy may be assigned one or more classes outside their areas of certiÂ“cation and are required to take appropriate steps to comply with the statutory regulation. Most of the out-ofÂ“eld assignments are listed as ESOL for English for Speakers of Other Languages. Human Resources Manager Jodi Lee said if a teacher has one student or 10 students who are English Language learners the teacher needs to work toward the ESOL endorsement, which has Â“ve classes of coursework. They are required to take one ESOL class per year until they obtain the endorsement, so it could take up to Â“ve years, she said. In 2005, the district started requiring new elementary, language/arts and reading teachers to immediately begin ESOL training. Elementary education is listed as out-of-Â“eld for 11 teachers. To view the list of teachers and their schools and subjects they may be assigned out-of-Â“eld go to the districtÂs website at www2.highlands.k12.Â”.us. From the homepage near the bottom-right under ÂannouncementsÂŽ click on Teachers Assigned Out-of-Field. According to the Florida Department of Education, a district must post known out-of-Â“eld teachers on the districtÂs website within 30 days before the beginning of each semester. If a district hires an out-of-Â“eld teacher or if a teacher becomes out-of-Â“eld after that date (because, for example, an ELL (English language learner) has been placed in his/her class), they must promptly update the website posting. A Florida Department of Education schoolby-school listing of the number of out-of-Â“eld teachers from 2016-17 shows the percentage varies among the Highlands DistrictÂs schools. Lake Placid High had the lowest percentage at 3.3 percent while Memorial Elementary had the highest percentage of out-of-Â“eld teachers with 25.1 percent and Lake Placid Middle had the second highest at 23.2 percent. The 2016-17 data showed districtwide DeSoto had 31.7 percent of its teachers assigned out-of-Â“eld. The Heartland area school with the highest percentage of out-of-Â“eld teachers was Clewiston Middle, in Hendry County, at 37.8 percent. MARC VALERO/STAFFThe School Board of Highlands County has 9 percent of its teachers assigned to duties in a subject outside the Â“eld in which they are certiÂ“ed.Sebring man faces drug chargesBy MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERSEBRING Â„ An undercover detective reportedly coordinated a drug sale with a Sebring man and purchased an ounce of cannabis from the man. Highlands County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce narcotics detectives arrested Dominique Rakeen Graham, 26, of Sebring on Friday, Oct. 5. Graham was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell within 1,000 feet of a speciÂ“ed area (convenience store), possession of drug paraphernalia with intent to distribute, use of a two-way communication device to facilitate a felony and owning or possessing a vehicle for the purpose or intent of selling or delivering narcotics. On Friday, narcotics detectives within the crime suppression unit began dialoguing with Graham via cellphone and social media, the arrest report states. Detectives reportedly coordinated a sale of one ounce of cannabis for $125. Graham and the detectives arranged a meeting at the Citgo gas station in Sebring. Detectives spotted Graham in his white InÂ“niti SUV, which detectives had observed on numerous prior occasions. Detectives extracted Graham from the vehicle, the report states. A search of the vehicle reportedly revealed a Walmart grocery bag with a smaller plastic bag inside it that contained a green, leafy substance, which Â“eld tested positive for cannabis. The total weight of the cannabis was 29.4 grams, and detectives also found $1,100 in the front driver door compartment and $1,031 on Graham, the report states. ÂThe currency was wrapped in a dealer fold in denominations of $20s, $5s, $1s, which is consistent with the street-level sale of narcotics,ÂŽ the report states.

A10 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 10, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com SPORTS SECTION B Wednesday, October 10, 2018 Â• LOCAL Â• STATE Â• NATIONAL Brees sets NFL record for passing yards New Orleans veteran passes Peyton ManningBy BRETT MARTELASSOCIATED PRESSNEW ORLEANS Â„ Drew Brees became the NFLÂs all-time leader in yards passing Â„ and he did it with a certain panache and precision that made the 39-year-old quarterback look far from Â“nished. Brees eclipsed Peyton ManningÂs previous record of 71,940 yards with a 62-yard touchdown pass to rookie TreÂQuan Smith during the second quarter of a 43-19 victory over the Washington Redskins on Monday night. ÂJust so grateful for the opportunity to play this game and to have played it so long and to have the teammates that I have, and the New Orleans Saints organization, and this great city and this great fan base. ItÂs just truly been a dream come true,ÂŽ Brees said. ÂIÂll be able to reÂ”ect on it maybe a little bit more when my career is done. I still feel like thereÂs work to be done.ÂŽ Brees entered the game needing 201 yards for the record. He had 250 by halftime. Brees, who already holds the single-season record for completion rate at 72 percent last season, Â“nished the game a remarkable 26 of 29 for 363 yards, no interceptions and three touchdowns Â„ two of them going to Smith, a third-round draft choice out of Central Florida. In a victory at Atlanta earlier this season, Brees broke Brett FavreÂs career record of 6,300 completions. Brees still needs 41 touchdown passes to surpass ManningÂs record of 539, something the Saints quarterback could achieve next season if he maintains his current level of play. But Brees also would have to outpace New EnglandÂs Tom Brady, who has 500 TD passes, the only active player with more than Brees in that category. Brees now has 499. Manning, a New Orleans native whose father, Archie, starred for the Saints, could not attend the game because of a scheduling conÂ”ict. However, he had pre-recorded a congratulatory message played on the SuperdomeÂs video boards. Shown on the video slicing tomatoes, Manning deadpanned that his time as the career yards passing leader have been Âthe greatest thousand days of my life.ÂŽ ÂThanks to you, thatÂs over now,ÂŽ Manning continued as the laughter erupted in the stands. ÂYouÂve ruined that for me.ÂŽ On a more serious note, Manning said Brees broke the record Âthe right way.ÂŽ ÂAll your hard work and dedication have paid off,ÂŽ Manning said while holding up a photo of himself and Brees standing side-by-side in 2000, when Brees was still at Purdue and Manning was a third-year pro. ÂYou and I have come a long way since this picture.ÂŽ BY GERALD HERBERT/ASSOCIATED PRESSNew Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (9) set the record for passing yards in a career in Monday nightÂs win over the Washington Redskins. Good fishing returns this weekendThe Freshwater Fishing Forecast for the second half of the second week of October gives anglers the end of the new moon week today and Thursday and the effects of hurricane Michael today through Thursday. So all Â“shing factors considered, high southerly winds will dominate the last two days of the new moon week. Friday will be the Â“rst day of regular seasonal weather patterns again, however the lunar inÂ”uence will be very weak and feeding activity will be random, and without a pattern. But bright sunshine will cause Â“sh to feed when oxygen rates are highest in the middle to late afternoon. Best Fishing Days: Considering the weather washout of the last two days of this new moon phase--today and tomorrowÂ„ Friday through the weekend from 4-8 p.m. will be most productive. Major Fishing Period: Today the moon is overhead at 2:39 p.m. and solar noon at 1:12 p.m. and will create a feed intensity rating of 4-5 today due to the storm, otherwise it would be in the 7-8 range from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Daily this period moves 50 minutes later. Friday through the weekend the 4-9 p.m. hours will be best. Minor Fishing Period : Today the moon-rise occurs at 8:45 a.m. and will create a feed intensity rating of 2-3 from 7-9:30 a.m. Daily this period moves later by one hour. Prime Monthly Periods: October 10-12 new moon, 21-26 full moon, November 4-9 new moon, 20-25 full moon, December 4-9 new moon, 19-24 full moon.

The Gold Cup is for 911 GT3 Cup race cars built between 2014 and 2016, and the Puerto Rican driver has dominated the class this season, with 11 victories from the seasonÂs 14 races to date. And while the championship is almost a foregone conclusion, Gomez is still chomping at the bit to go racing. ÂHonestly, IÂve been like a little kid,ÂŽ Gomez said. ÂI canÂt sleep. I canÂt eat. I just need to get to Atlanta. ÂIÂve been training really hard physically. IÂve been doing long hours in the simulator, just to show our true potential. Since we only have to start the Â“rst race, I can show what I really can do, because all season, IÂve been giving my 100 percent. IÂm always making sure the car ends up in one piece to secure the championship.ÂŽ With 11 wins, Gomez has had plenty of highlights throughout the season. ThereÂs one race in particular that stands out to him. ÂThe (Â“rst) race at Barber,ÂŽ said Gomez, referring to the doubleheader at the picturesque Alabama circuit back in April.

It is always entertaining every time they play each other in any sport. The Blue Streaks and Green Dragons faced off at the net Monday night in front of a packed gym. For Lake Placid it was senior night and emotions were high. Sebring defeated Lake Placid in three hard-fought sets by scores of 2522, 25-12 and 25-20. The Green Dragons jumped to an early lead in the Â“rst set with Jenna Capuano going on a Â“ve-point run to claim the lead. Capuano also contributed 17 assists, 6 digs and 2 aces. SebringÂs Julie Crow cut the deÂ“cit to 5-4. The Green Dragons built their lead to 11-9 and Valeria Vega furthered that lead with an outstanding Â“ve-point run putting Lake Placid up 17-9. Lake PlacidÂs Raeley Matthews led her team with 19 kills and 17 digs. Sebring trailed Lake Placid 20-11 when Carly Webb went on a six-point run to pull within 20-18. The Blue Streaks tied the game at 2222, and SebringÂs Allie Cannady made the Â“nal three-point run to win the Â“rst set, 25-22. ÂI am very proud of my young ladies,ÂŽ said Sebring Coach Vennessa Sinness. ÂWe came out weak and unfocused and being able to refocus ourselves. It really shows integrity and discipline on our part. I am really proud of Emily Vickers and Julie Crow. Julie had a heck of a game tonight, I am so proud of her, she served the heck out of the ball and we needed that.ÂŽ Set two was neck-and-neck until Sebring pulled ahead 15-6. Jordan Sinness furthered the Blue Streaks lead with a three-point run to make it 21-9. The Blue Streaks went on to defeat the Green Dragons with a Â“nal score of 25-12. ÂI think we played hard but it just wasnÂt in the cards tonight,ÂŽ said Lake PlacidÂs Melina Oxer. ÂI donÂt think we need to give up because we have a lot of games left. This is our senior night and these girls donÂt realize how fast it goes by. It is a very emotional night. I am not going to play in college so this is my last chance. I have a lot of friends that play for Sebring, so it was fun to play them for the last time. I love my team to death. ItÂs the dream team and I couldnÂt RUTH ANNE LAWSON/STAFFSebringÂs Allie Cannady hits the ball past Lake Placid blockers Raeley Matthews (9) and Sariah Barajas (10) in Monday nightÂs match.

Lake Placid jumped to an early lead with Capuano going on a four-point run to take a 7-4 lead. The Blue Streaks tied the game at 7 and pulled ahead 14-13. The lead widened as Ashley Bible scored several points to make it 17-14. The teams inched ahead until Sebring de feated Lake Placid 25-20 giving them a 3-0 victory. I always know going into this kind of match it is emotional, said Lake Placid Coach Charlotte Bauder. I dont know what kind of hold Sebring has on us emotionally but we get a ten-point lead and we die off and dont nish the set. We missed serves when it was crucial, a lot of balls into the net and a lot of mistakes. We have to learn how to put things away, nish games, nish sets so we can ultimately win the match. We are never going to win when we lay down and die. We have work to do if they want to get past regionals. I have to give a shout-out to all my seniors it is their last night, I have been with these kids since the seventh grade, they played well and brought it tonight. The Lake Placid Green Dragons and the Sebring Blue Streaks are preparing for districts that are quickly approaching.

Honestly, it was one of my best races in my life, because I was able to show my true potential, going from last to rst and managing my way through trafc. That was denitely one of the biggest highlights of the season. Gomez is quick to credit his team, NGT Motorsport, for his per formance. This years title would be the teams sixth in GT3 Cup Challenge USA competition. NGTs a great team, he said. I think that championships are won in training, so (team own er) Ramez (Wahab) and all the guys in NGT give specic focus in having long hours in data, just going deep into data and nding where the speed is. We emphasize that a lot in NGT. I feel like a family at NGT. Like, all the guys are literally my brothers and Ramez and (his wife) Sylvia are like my second parents. Every time I go to the track, I feel like its my second family. This is Gomezs third season in the GT3 Cup Challenge USA, which he entered for the rst time in 2016 as the IMSA Hurley Haywood GT3 Scholarship recipient. He feels strongly about how the series has helped him develop as a driver. First of all, being in the ofcial Porsche GT3 Cup series in the U.S. is a prestige, he said. Its an honor. I mean, Im battling against the best amateur drivers in the U.S. driving Porsches. So, just to be around them, I learn a lot. The Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama wraps up its 2018 season with two 45-minute races at Road Atlanta as part of the prestigious Motul Petit Le Mans event week for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The rst GT3 Cup Challenge USA race takes the green ag at 5:55 p.m. Thursday.

Belly-up to the pod! Tune in online at www.news-journalonline. com/daytonamotormouthsCUP STANDINGS WHATÂS ON TAP QUESTIONS & ATTITUDECompelling questions ... and maybe a few actual answers WhatÂs your percentage on Chase ElliottÂs chance to win the championship? GODSPEAK: Young Chase improved his standing by winning Dover and advancing. He moved up to a 50 percent chance. KENÂS CALL: HeÂs running well at the right time, which kinda tells me heÂll make the Final Four, at which point, by my math, he has a 1-in-4 shot. WhereÂs my calculator? Got it: 25 percent. WhoÂll be happy to see the Talladega City Limits sign? GODSPEAK: LetÂs go with Jamie McMurray, who has no ride in 2019. He is sneaky, restrictor-plate good, and a Talladega win would let him exit NASCAR with a big win. KENÂS CALL: No doubt, Alex Bowman. If you only have one shot to advance in the playoffs, and that one shot hinges on victory, you take your chances on a plate race. CLINT BOWYER VS. RYAN NEWMAN: Bowyer said his No. 14 Ford was jolted by NewmanÂs No. 31 Chevy, which eventually led to him crashing out of the race. GODWIN KELLYÂS TAKE: Bowyer is a playoff driver, and Newman is making laps until 2019, when he joins Roush Fenway Racing. Bowyer was not happy. ÂI got tore up passing a lapper,ÂŽ Bowyer groused. WINNER: Brad Keselowski REST OF TOP 5: Joey Logano, Chase Elliott, Denny Hamlin, Aric Almirola FIRST ONE OUT: Ryan Blaney DARK HORSE: Ricky Stenhouse Jr. DONÂT BE SURPRISED IF: Keselowski or Logano wins this race. They have six victories in their past eight starts at Talladega.Why didnÂt Denny force the issue?LetÂs start with the obvious. Denny Hamlin and Chase Elliott have a history, and in terms of public reaction, DennyÂs reputation took a hit. So when Denny had a shot to stick his nose in there in Turn 1 at Dover, on the Â“nal restart, he appeared to back off and let Chase run it out. ThatÂs understandable in one respect, but then again, man, that wouldÂve been spectacular entertainment if heÂd gone ugly on him.Where is Christopher Bell next year?Probably back in XÂ“nity, though he has nothing to prove there. ItÂs never been just about ability in auto racingÂs pecking order. Often, manufacturers and sponsors have the Â“nal say about who gets promoted. In better economic times for NASCAR, Bell would almost be able to call his shot, depending on contractual issues. Now, not so much. But is he ready? You better believe it.Â„ Ken Willis, ken. email@example.com. Kevin Harvick 31012. Kyle Busch 3096 3. Martin Truex Jr. 3069 4. Joey Logano 3064 5. Chase Elliott 30566. Kurt Busch 3054 6.

Pat on backChase Elliott got a pat on the back from his car owner Rick Hendrick after winning Dover. ÂYou know he is smart, he is like his dad,ÂŽ he said. ÂHe is really smart, he knows when to race and he has got unbelievable car control. IÂm just very fortunate to have him in our camp.ÂŽ2. Laps donÂt countKevin Harvick led at Dover Â“ve times for 286 (of 404) laps but Â“nished sixth. Elliott led once, led 11 consecutive laps and won the race in overtime. Harvick will take the Cup Series points lead to Talladega. ÂI donÂt really care about points,ÂŽ he said. ÂIÂd rather win.ÂŽ3. Teammate cautionAric Almirola looked like he was on his way to victory, but with eight laps to go in regulation, his teammate Clint Bowyer crashed, which brought out a decisive yellow Â”ag. ÂWeÂve had so many opportunities,ÂŽ said Almirola, who Â“nished 13th. ÂIÂm frustrated and mad and angry.ÂŽÂ„ Godwin Kelly, godwin. firstname.lastname@example.orgChase Elliott scored his second Cup Series win of the season at Dover, then scored a compliment from his car owner. [AP/ NICK WASS] 1. In the holeAlex Bowman has dug himself a deep playoff hole thanks to a 28th-place Â“nish at Dover. He is 92 points behind points leader Kevin Harvick and 34 points below the cut line for advancing. Car owner Rick Hendrick has two drivers in the playoffs, but only one going into the Round of 8. ÂWe hope Alex can get the win down there,ÂŽ said Hendrick, while celebrating with his Dover winner Chase Elliott.2. Welcome, wild-cardWhile Charlotte Motor SpeedwayÂs Roval race has become a wild-card race of sorts for playoff contenders, Talladega Superspeedway will always be a driverÂs worst nightmare. Eight of the 12 survivors would like to win this race and join Chase Elliott with a pass to the Round of 8. This big, 2.66-mile tri-oval, which is a lane wider than Daytona, always produces major white-knuckle moments.3. Entertainment valueTalladega Superspeedway must have enormous entertainment value because NASCARÂs two television partners are airing races on their broadcast networks. Fox will show the Camping World Truck Series race on its primary network Saturday, while NBC is doing the same on Sunday with the Cup Series event. This will be only the second (and last) Truck Series event to make the big stage at Fox. Enjoy.Â„ Godwin Kelly, godwin. email@example.comAll eyes will be on Talladega Superspeedway Sunday to see how the 500-mile race scrambles the NASCAR playoff Â“eld.

AROUND TOWN SECTION A Wednesday, October 10, 2018 Barktoberest another big successBy TOM MEISENHEIMERCORRESPONDENTIt literally ÂreignedÂ cats and dogs last Saturday in Lake PlacidÂs Devane Park at the 5th annual Barktoberfest sponsored by Pawsitive Effects, a not for proÂ“t company Steve and Gini Shevick founded to collect pet and food items to be shared by the 11 area shelters in Highlands and Hardee counties. Over 50 dogs and cats ranging from 7-week old puppies to older dogs and cats were up for adoption. Parents never expecting to adopt an animal could not say no as their kids held a puppy, falling in love at Â“rst site with their new pet. Senior citizen Danny Breese just lost his 16-year-old dog and he beamed as he found 9-week old Heidi a black and white puppy to take home. The park was jammed packed by 10 a.m. with people attending the event designed to offer animals up for adoption, fundraising for area shelters, education and a fun day for animal lovers. There was food, a silent auction, $790 dollars worth of tickets were sold for the 50/50 rafÂ”e and the winner generously donated her winnings back. RafÂ”e basket drawings were held for folks donating an item. Vendors abounded selling all types of pet related things from artist Maureen Fulginiti doing pet portraits to RhondaÂs Grooming offering nail clipping. A vet was on hand to answer pertinent questions. And the kids were kept busy petting as many dogs and cats as they could. The morning began with Marti Capodiferro, ofÂ“ce manager at the Lake Placid Chamber of Commerce singing a powerful rendition of the national anthem. Immediately after an opening prayer, a drawing was held with Mary Smit winning a $500 VISA gift card and David Stone a $400 Yeti cooler.

Susan Rhodes, micro chipped by Animal Services and family photos were taken with pets and Santa.

It wasnÂt an annoying sound; instead, it was a sound with a purpose. Twenty-two bikes pulled out to begin a 78-mile ride that would beneÂ“t two small children. Organizer Stan Epling II, is the president of the Highland Chapter Low Twelve Masonic Riders Association, which is an international association of motorcycle enthusiasts. ItÂs a little different than most groups, in that its members are all Master Masons. However, Epling explained that since this is the Â“rst formal ride for the association, which formed in Sebring just six months ago, it was open to any and all riders. ThatÂs because of the memorial/charity aspect of this special event. A couple months ago, one of their lodge members, William Moncrieff, lost his wife, Emily, 23, to a car/ train wreck. Emily and her girlfriend were killed at a Frostproof railroad crossing. Moncrieff was left with raising their two sons alone. So, a memorial fund was set up at MIDFLORIDA Credit Union for Henry, age 2, and Rheit, age 1. Emily had worked at the bank. Epling, who goes by the nickname, ÂSpankyÂ and his fellow riders thought it would be Â“tting for them to hold their Â“rst ride for a charitable cause. They plan to make some type of memorial ride every year in the future too. All the proceeds from the day and the 50/50 drawing are going into the boysÂ fund. COURTESY PHOTOFrom left; Stanley ÂSpankyÂ Epling II, Emily MoncriefÂs mother Viki Sager and William Moncrief. The Highlands Chapter of the Low Twelve Masonic Riders Association presented Moncrief with $875.Brew Jam races to SIRSebring Raceway hosting beer/music festivalBy Special to Highlands News-SunSEBRING Â„ Sebring International Raceway is known for great parties, and Brew Jam Grand Prix on Oct. 13 will add to its legacy.

More than 30 beers from breweries including Salt Water Brewing, Yuengling and Sam Adams will keep guests hydrated as the Hatley Band, Ari and The Alibis and Kettle of Fish perform on stage starting at 3:30 p.m. A portion of proceeds from the event will beneÂ“t the Veteran Services OfÂ“ce (VSO) of Highlands County. The VSO serves the Veteran, and his or her family, by providing services and assisting in the application for additional beneÂ“ts through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Gates open at 3 p.m. with a $5 cover charge that includes a full day of entertainment and music. Hours of unlimited beer sampling is just $20 more.

Event t-shirts will be on sale and will feature the Brew Jam alligator jamming on his guitar.Kettle of FishÂ„ 7:30 p.m.Kettle of Fish music features blues, soul and funk with the energy of rock Ân roll. They make old songs new again, and their originals sound like classics. Kettle is one of the hottest live acts in Southwest Florida, headlining to thousands, and opening for such acts as Eddie Money, Marshall Tucker Band, Elvin Bishop, Dickey Betts and many more playing mostly originals and deep-track covers. Kettle has been led by singer and principal songwriter Dana Lawrence since its inception in 2001. Current members include Greg Poulos on guitar (formerly with the Freddie King Band, the Venturas, Rock Bottom), Chris Guertin on bass (Big Kahuna Band), Rick Andre on drums (has toured with the Platters, Ben E King, Chuck Berry) and Robin Swenson on keys (Four Seasons, Aretha Franklin). Other honorary members include Thorson Moore, the rising star Kevin Miller on guitar, Garrett Dawson on drums/percussion, Andy Wallace or Matthew Frost on keys, Jimmie Fadden (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band) on drums and harmonicas.Ari and the AlibisÂ„5 p.m.Infusing funk, jazz and samba with blues soul and rock, Ari and the Alibis have created a memorable ear-catching sound. Formed in September of 2013, Ari and the Alibis quickly became one of the top acts in their native Tampa Bay music scene, as evidenced by their 2015/16 nomination for best local band in Tampa Bay and Ari for best jazz vocalist.

www.highlandsnewssun.com October 10, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B3So, after an all-you-could-eat breakfast, a safety meeting was held that laid out the route and went over signals that ÂSpankyÂ would use along the way. Then, it was time to warm up those engines. Most participants wore their leather colors, representing the rider clubs they belong to. Several riders were from the American Legion Post 69, in Avon Park. Dave and Sharon Marcum were aboard their Harley trike motorcycle. What made them unique is that they are from Arizona, riding cross-country. They learned of the charity ride and decided they wanted to be part of it. James Cagle said he was a late bloomer to riding motorcycles and has only been riding for Â“ve years. HeÂs the chaplain of the Avon Park American Legion. Cagle served 20 years in the Navy, followed by a career as a school teacher, before retiring. Meanwhile, Hank Smith of Avon Park has been a biker for 33 years. He is the plant manager at Sebring High School. He takes about a 250-mile ride almost every weekend. Smith knew of Emily Moncrieff through his church, and wanted to be a part of the memorial ride. Right on time, Epling, riding his 1000 V-Star Yamaha, led the group on an adventure that would take them through much of Highlands County on a ride with a purpose. The weather cooperated as well. It was a perfect day for an excursion! Anyone wishing to donate to the boysÂ fund, or who would like information about joining the Masons, or becoming a member of the Low Twelve Motorcycle Association can call Epling at 863-3816419. Thanks to all who participated!RIDEFROM PAGE 1B JERRY MEISENHEIMER/CORRESPONDENTHank Smith drives about 250 miles each weekend.

Families adopting a new pet had the beneÂ“t of receiving a neutered pet with shots. Each family received a photo with their adoptee and offered free obedience training as well as a supply of free treats. By noon over 20 animals went to new loving homes. The Â“rst dog was adopted at 10:09 a.m. The Â“rst kitty at 11:14 a.m. When all was said and done, there were 38 adoptions and $25,000 was raised for local animal shelters. The Shevicks wanted to thank all of the sponsors, adopters, donors and volunteers for helping the event to be another big success. There were huge dogs, mini dogs, barking dogs, shy dogs, groomed dogs, messy dogs, cute kittens and full grown cats of all color combinations. One booth even had recused critters like a 12 year old Cuban Rock iguana. And a goat even made it to the best dressed pet contest. Three year old Trey Hall from Lake Wales had his mom purchase a blow up rubber dog for him. She was witty as she said, ÂŽDonÂt need to feed or train that one.ÂŽ You can still have a chip placed into your pet for $10 by visiting Animal Services at 7300 Haywood Taylor Blvd in Sebring. That way if your pet is lost and found you will be notiÂ“ed and it will be returned to you.

THE NEWS WIRESTATE Â€ NATIONAL Â€ WORLD Â€ BUSINESS Wednesday, October 10, 2018 By JENNIFER SINCO KELLEHERASSOCIATED PRESSHONOLULU Â„ If you got incessant phone calls last week from a hospital that cares for Hawaiian monk seals, you were butt-dialed. Or, more speciÂ“cally, foot-dialed. By a gecko. Marine mammal veterinarian Claire Simeone was at lunch when she got a call from Ke Kai Ola, the Big Island hospital where sheÂs director. There was silence on the other end. Nine more silent calls followed. Fearing a seal emergency, she rushed back. She wasnÂt the only one getting calls, and people started asking why the hospital was calling non-stop. Trying Â“gure out why a ÂbazillionÂŽ calls were made from one line, she called the phone company and a rep tried to talk her through Â“nding a possible line on the fritz. She walked into a lab and found the culprit. The gecko was perched on a phone, making calls to everyone in the recent call history with ÂHIS TINY GECKO FEET,ÂŽ she wrote in a Twitter thread the next day, detailing the saga. Social media delighted in the tale and some people offered jokes about a certain companyÂs gecko calling to save you money on your car insurance. After discovering the mystery caller, Simeone caught the gecko and put it outside, she said Tuesday. ÂIf thereÂs a little gecko that helps us share the story of conservation, then thatÂs a win,ÂŽ she said of the work she does caring for the endangered seals. Gecko butt-dials ÂbazillionÂ times AP PHOTOThis Oct. 3, 2018, photo provided by The M arine Mammal Center hospital director Claire Simeone shows a gecko on a phone at the center in Kailua Kona, Hawaii. The gecko is the culprit in making numerous calls in the phonesÂ recent call history with his tiny feet. By ZEKE MILLER, DEB RIECHMANN and JONATHAN LEMIREASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON Â„ In the latest shake-up for President Donald TrumpÂs turbulent administration, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley abruptly announced Tuesday she is resigning at the end of the year, raising fresh questions about the Trump team and about the outspoken diplomatÂs own political ambitions. The news blindsided some key U.S. allies and many congressional Republicans involved in foreign policy matters. And it came less than a month before congressional elections, thwarting White House efforts to project an image of stability, with the loss of one of the highest-proÂ“le women in the administration at a time when womenÂs votes are being vigorously pursued. But Haley, the former South Carolina governor, has often been an unpredictable and independent force in the Trump administration. At times she has offered strikingly different perspectives on world events from her more isolationist-minded boss. A smiling Haley announced her decision at an Oval OfÂ“ce meeting alongside the president, bringing up her own political prospects even as she underscored her continued support for Trump. Without prompting from reporters, she said she had no plans to run for president Âin 2020ÂŽ and would campaign for Trump. Haley, who is 46 and not personally wealthy, hinted in her resignation letter to Trump that she is headed to the private sector. ÂI have given everything IÂve got these last eight years,ÂŽ she said, referring to her six years as governor as well as her time at the U.N.

By JESSICA GRESKO and MARK SHERMANASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON Â„ Brett Kavanaugh took the bench with his new Supreme Court colleagues for the Â“rst time Tuesday in a jovial atmosphere that was strikingly at odds with the tension and rancor surrounding his high-court conÂ“rmation. The new justice dived into his new job, asking a handful of questions in the Â“rst arguments of the day following a traditional welcome from Chief Justice John Roberts, who wished Kavanaugh Âa long and happy career in our common calling.ÂŽ Kavanaugh took his seat at the end of the bench to RobertsÂ far left, a visible manifestation of a moment that Republicans have dreamed of for decades, with Â“ve solidly conservative justices on the court, and Democrats have dreaded. His path to conÂ“rmation was turbulent Â„ opposition to him intensiÂ“ed after Christine Blasey Ford accused him of sexually assaulting her decades ago, when they were teenagers. Kavanaugh denied it. In court, Kavanaugh asked questions of both sides in arguments over increased prison sentences for repeat offenders. He jumped in with his Â“rst question after most of the other justices had spoken. Questions from Kavanaugh and Justice Neil Gorsuch, President Donald TrumpÂs two highcourt picks, suggested they could vote against the Trump administration and side with a criminal defendant from Florida who is Â“ghting an increase in his sentence from just over six years to possibly more than 15 years. As Gorsuch did in his Â“rst arguments last year, Kavanaugh focused heavily on the importance of follo wing earlier decisions of the court. Both men testiÂ“ed about their respect f or Supreme Court precedent, though Gorsuch already has been in the majority to overrule four high-court rulings. Referring to a 2010 decision known as Curtis Johnson, Kavanaugh asked Justice Department lawyer Frederick Liu what the court should do Âif weÂre trying to follow Curtis Johnson strictly?ÂŽ There were no disruptions in the courtroom, and the justices laughed at one anotherÂs jokes. Justice Sonia Sotomayor even appeared to playfully pinch GorsuchÂs arm as she asked a question about the kind of physical force necessary to have a crime be treated as violent under a federal enhanced sentencing law. When the session came to an end, Kavanaugh shook hands with his new seatmate, Justice Elena Kagan. They also chatted privately before the arguments began. From time to time, Kavanaugh put on reading glasses to glance at papers in front of him. KavanaughÂs wife and two daughters were in seats reserved for justicesÂ guests, along with retired Justice Anthony Kennedy. Kavanaugh replaced Kennedy on the bench. There was a long line of people hoping to see KavanaughÂs Â“rst appearance. Police put up barricades in front of the cour t, but there were few protesters in the early morning.Kavanaugh takes his place on Supreme Court By TAMI ABDOLLAHASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON Â„ A new law requires the Federal Emergency Management Agency to investigate how it came to award Hurricane Maria relief contracts to a company with an unproven record.

Page 2 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018STATE/WORLD NEWSBy GARY FINEOUTASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE Â„ A partisan brushÂ“re blew up Tuesday amid the threat of Hurricane Michael over voter registration deadlines in the battleground state of Florida. The Florida Democratic Party sued in federal court, asking a judge to extend the stateÂs registration deadline by at least a week. FloridaÂs deadline to register to vote was Oct. 9, 28 days ahead of the Nov. 6 election. Democrats including Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who is running for governor against Republican Ron DeSantis, called for an extension as MichaelÂs imminent arrival prompted evacuations and the closing of government ofÂ“ces across the Panhandle. Shortly before midnight Monday, Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner, who works for Republican Gov. Rick Scott, told local election supervisors that if their ofÂ“ces were closed Tuesday, then they could accept paper applications on the day their ofÂ“ces reopen. In his order, Detzner said giving some supervisors this extra day to accept paper registration forms would ensure all ofÂ“ces in the state will be open the same number of days. Democrats are contending in their lawsuit that DetznerÂs solution is inadequate and not equally available to all Floridians. The lawsuit asks what happens to people who evacuate and canÂt make it back to their local elections ofÂ“ces on the day they reopen. ÂThis limited, confusing, and inconsistent solution is not sufÂ“cient to adequately protect the voting rights of Floridians,ÂŽ reads the lawsuit, Â“led in the federal court in Tallahassee. John Tupps, a spokesman for Scott, did not say if the state planned to Â“ght the lawsuit, but said that ÂGov. Scott is focused on keeping Floridians safe as a major hurricane rapidly approaches our state.ÂŽ He added that Âthe governor believes that every eligible voter should be able to register to vote and Floridians can go online right now to do so. In fact, nearly 10,000 people have registered to vote online since midnight.ÂŽ Democrats two years ago sued to extend FloridaÂs voter registration deadline because of the disruption caused by Hurricane Matthew. A judge sided with Democrats and extended the deadline a week. But a key difference from 2016 is the creation of an online site that allows Floridians to either register or update their registration. Florida had more than 13 million registered voters as of the end of August, according to the state Division of Elections. Several statewide elections in recent years have been decided by very narrow margins. ÂI do think we ought to do whatever we can to extend registration to folks, especially given the fact that most people are trying to scurry away from these areas,ÂŽ Gillum said Monday. ÂThey arenÂt thinking about voter registration.ÂŽFlorida Democrats sue to extend voter registration deadline MORE HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATE2 workers electrocuted at construction sitePALM COAST (AP) Â„ Authorities say two Florida construction workers were electrocuted when the equipment they were operating struck a power line. News outlets report that 37-year-old Richard Hockaday and 39-year-old Gerald Anderson died Monday morning while working at a residential construction site in Palm Coast. The Flagler County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce says a concrete pump truck boom touched a high-voltage line, sending about 13,000 volts of electricity through the men.

The Gainesville Sun reports that an Alachua County jury awarded $12.5 million each on Friday to the parents of 20-year-old Abigail Dougherty. Dougherty was killed by a Waste Corporation of America garbage truck nearly two years ago. The jury found that WCA of Florida, LLC was 80 percent liable.

By ISABEL DEBREASSOCIATED PRESSJERUSALEM Â„ In a groundbreaking case, Israel has detained an American graduate student at its international airport for the past week, accusing her of supporting a Palestinianled boycott campaign against the Jewish state. The case highlights IsraelÂs concerns about the boycott movement and the great efforts it has made to stop it. The grassroots campaign has made signiÂ“cant inroads in recent years, particularly among university students and millennials. Lara Alqasem, a 22-yearold U.S. citizen with Palestinian grandparents, landed at Ben-Gurion Airport last Tuesday with a valid student visa. But she was barred from entering the country and ordered deported, based on suspicions she is a boycott supporter. An Israeli court has ordered that she remain in custody while she appeals. The weeklong detention is the longest anyone has been held in a boycott-related case, and it was not immediately clear on Tuesday when a Â“nal decision would be made. In the meantime, she has been spending her days in a closed area with little access to a telephone, no internet and a bed that was infested with bedbugs, according to people who have spoken to her. Alqasem, from the Fort Lauderdale suburb of Southwest Ranches, Florida, is a former president of the University of Florida chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine. The group is a branch of the BDS movement, whose name comes from its calls for boycotts, divestment and sanctions against Israel. BDS supporters say that in urging businesses, artists and universities to sever ties with Israel, they are using nonviolent means to resist unjust policies toward Palestinians. Israel says the movement masks its motives to delegitimize or destroy the Jewish state. ÂLara served as president of a chapter of one of the most extreme and hateÂ“lled anti-Israel BDS groups in the U.S.,ÂŽ said Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan, who spearheads the Israeli governmentÂs efforts against the boycott movement. ÂIsrael will not allow entry to those who work to harm the country, whatever their excuse.ÂŽ The ministry said that during AlqasemÂs involvement with Students for Justice in Palestine, the club advocated a boycott against Sabra hummus, an Israeli-owned brand of chickpea dip. On Tuesday, Erdan Â”oated a possible compromise, saying in a radio interview that he would rethink his decision to expel her if she apologizes and renounces her support for BDS. ÂIf Lara Alqasem will tomorrow in her own voice, not through all kinds of lawyers or statements that can be misconstrued, say that support for BDS is not legitimate and she regrets what she did, we will certainly reconsider our position,ÂŽ he said. Israel enacted a law last year banning any foreigner who Âknowingly issues a public call for boycotting IsraelÂŽ from entering the country. It also has identiÂ“ed 20 activist groups from around the world whose members can be denied entry upon arrival.

WARSAW, Poland (AP) Â„ PolandÂs president and descendants of Holocaust survivors held a graveside ceremony Tuesday to honor a Polish diplomat in Switzerland who helped Jews escape Nazioccupied Poland during World War II by issuing phony Latin American passports. The ceremony took place at the Friedental cemetery in Lucerne, Switzerland, where Konstanty Rokicki was buried in 1958 in a simple grave after dying in poverty. A new gravestone was placed that describes his role in saving Jews. RokickiÂs actions were a Âbrighter star in that night of black despair,ÂŽ Duda told dozens of attendants. Rokicki was vice-consul at PolandÂs consulate in Bern, and worked to get Jews out of Poland with other Polish diplomats and Jewish activists Abraham Silberschein and Chaim Eiss. During 1942-43, he bought and otherwise obtained blank passports from countries including Paraguay, Honduras and Haiti, and Â“lled them in with names and photographs of Polish Jews, secretly delivered from Poland. Historians believe that 330 people were known to have been saved thanks to such passports. The fate of another 430 has not been determined, while a further 387 were killed despite having the false documents. On Tuesday, some relatives of those saved displayed the documents issued by Rokicki. The ceremony was part of President Andrzej DudaÂs state visit to Switzerland.Polish leader honors WWII diplomat who tried to help Jews AP PHOTOAndrzej Duda, President of Poland, front left, kneels down during the inauguration of a monument to honor the polish holocaust savior Konstanty Rokicki at the cemetery Friedental in Lucerne, Switzerland, Tuesday. MORE HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLDSyrian president grants general amnesty to army desertersBEIRUT (AP) Â„ Syrian President Bashar alAssad granted general amnesty on Tuesday to army deserters both within Syria and outside the country, a move that could boost the return of refugees who Â”ed violence in their war-torn country. The decree, published by state media, said the amnesty did not include ÂcriminalsÂŽ and those on the run unless they turn themselves in to authorities. Deserters in Syria have four months to do so; those abroad have six months. Since SyriaÂs conÂ”ict began in March 2011, tens of thousands of soldiers have either deserted their posts or defected and joined rebels trying to remove Assad from power. The amnesty also includes draft dodgers. The new amnesty does not include army defectors, some of whom are still Â“ghting against the government, mostly in the northwestern province of Idlib, the last major rebel stronghold in the country. The amnesty could encourage the return of refugees, some of whom have not been able to go back home because they were blacklisted for running away from military service. Other men have feared that if they return they will be punished or forced to join the military.Brazil candidate accused of spreading fake news storiesSAO PAULO (AP) Â„ The runoff race for BrazilÂs presidency is already heating up with a battle over fake news. The center-left contender is accusing his far-right rivalÂs campaign of defaming him with false news stories. Independent fact checkers say Haddad has been targeted by a wave of false allegations, some accusing him of planning to shut down churches and distribute textbooks teaching children to be gay.Group: Poisoning suspect honored by Putin in 2014LONDON (AP) Â„ One of the two suspects in the poisoning of a Russian ex-spy in England is a medical doctor in Russian military intelligence who was honored as a Hero of the Russian Federation by President Vladimir Putin in 2014, a group of British investigators said Tuesday. British police say two GRU agents traveling under the aliases Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Borishov used a Soviet-made nerve agent to poison Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the English city of Salisbury in March. Investigative organization Bellingcat said it had used documents and other research to identify Petrov as Dr. Alexander Mishkin, a member of RussiaÂs GRU intelligence agency. Last month, it said that BorishovÂs real identity is GRU Col. Anatoly Chepiga.
The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3 NATIONAL NEWSBy RICHARD LARDNERASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON Â„ A push to give the Justice Department more enforcement authority over the lucrative and at times shadowy world of foreign lobbying is stalled amid opposition from pro-business groups, nonproÂ“ts and privacy advocates. Organizations that range from the inÂ”uential U.S. Chamber of Commerce to the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers have raised objections to legislation that would sharpen the teeth of the Foreign Agents Registration Act. The law, enacted 80 years ago to expose Nazi propaganda, requires people to disclose when they lobby in the U.S. on behalf of foreign governments or political entities. While thereÂs bipartisan support for cracking down on unregistered foreign agents, several of the changes proposed in congressional bills could backÂ“re by sweeping in a host of unintended targets, according to critics. That pushback has effectively kept the legislation from advancing as lobbying groups press for revisions. One of the most contentious provisions would eliminate a popular loophole that permits lobbyists representing foreign commercial interests to be exempt from the law, known as FARA. That shift, one business group has warned, could extend the rigorous disclosure requirements to U.S. subsidiaries of global companies, stigmatizing them as foreign agents even though they employ thousands of Americans. Congressional interest in fortifying the law comes in the aftermath of RussiaÂs meddling in the 2016 election and a special counsel investigation thatÂs drawn greater attention to the inner workings of international inÂ”uence peddling. Most recently, Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman, admitted in a plea deal that heÂd failed to register as a foreign agent when he directed a lobbying operation for Ukrainian interests. Prosecutors said he concealed millions of dollars in income for the work from the IRS. Earlier this year, federal prosecutors unveiled an indictment against a Russian troll farm accused of interfering in the 2016 election through bogus Facebook posts that revealed how foreign parties can weaponize social media to inÂ”uence public opinion. Yet criminal cases under FARA have been rare, with fewer than a dozen since 1966 as the Justice Department generally emphasized voluntary compliance over prosecution. Lawmakers supporting the bills say a 2016 inspector generalÂs report found that the department lacked the tools it needed to properly enforce FARA. A violation of the law is punishable by a Â“ne or up to Â“ve years in prison. But the defense lawyers association and the Center for Democracy and Technology, a civil-liberties group, have declared that Fourth Amendment privacy protections would be undermined by a section of the bill that would expand the Justice DepartmentÂs power to investigate possible violations of the law. And an alliance of more than 40 nongovernmental organizations called InterAction has urged lawmakers to repair vague and outdated provisions in the current law before passing a new one that strengthens the governmentÂs hand. These groups fear that the law, if not repaired, could leave nonproÂ“ts open Âto possible politicized enforcement actions and attack,ÂŽ according to an open letter they wrote earlier this year.Objections blunt momentum for foreign lobbying law overhaul MORE HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE NATIONLimo service lawyer says violations fixed before fatal crashSCHOHARIE, N.Y. (AP) Â„ The limousine service under scrutiny after a crash that killed 20 people Â“xed safety violations in its Â”eet before the tragedy, said a lawyer who suggested the driver was unfamiliar with the rural road. Prestige Limousine has been criticized for maintaining vehicles rife with violations and for employing a driver lacking a commercial license. The deadly crash Saturday west of Albany also has shined fresh light on the controversial history of the businessÂ owner, a former FBI informant. The limousine that ran a stop sign at a T-intersection was cited for code violations Sept. 4, including a problem with the antilock brake system malfunction indicator system. Four of the Gansevoort, New Yorkbased companyÂs limos were cited for 22 maintenance violations this year, though none were deemed critical. ÂThose safety issues had been addressed and corrected,ÂŽ attorney Lee Kindlon, who represents Prestige, told CBS News in a segment Tuesday. ÂNot all infractions are major. A lot of these things are minor and were Â“xed.ÂŽ Kindlon said he doesnÂt think those infractions contributed to the crash.Nicks, Def Leppard among first-time rock hall nomineesNEW YORK (AP) Â„ Stevie Nicks, whoÂs already in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Fleetwood Mac, has been nominated for inclusion as a solo artist next year, along with other Â“rst-time nominees Def Leppard, Todd Rundgren, Devo, John Prine and Roxy Music. Nine other artists are returning to the ballot for another try, including Janet Jackson, Radiohead and The Cure. Generally, about Â“ve to seven nominees each year are voted into the hall, located in Cleveland, Ohio. Past inductees and industry experts vote on who gets in, and fans have a ballot, too. Winners are announced in December, with the 34th annual ceremony scheduled for March 29 at BrooklynÂs Barclays Center.Young activist to make TV debut as transgender superheroBANGOR, Maine (AP) Â„ An activist in Maine who won a lawsuit over using the girlsÂ bathroom at her school is making her TV debut as a transgender superhero. The Bangor Daily News reports 21-year-old Nicole Maines will appear on Season 4 of The CWÂs series ÂSupergirlÂŽ Sunday. The Orono native will play Nia Nal, also known as Dreamer. Producers say the character is a Âsoulful young transgender woman with a Â“erce drive to protect others.ÂŽ The character is believed to be the Â“rst transgender superhero on U.S. television. Maines gained attention for her lawsuit against her school district after her elementary school said she could no longer use the girlsÂ bathroom. MaineÂs highest court ruled in 2014 that ofÂ“cials violated state anti-discrimination law. Maines has made previous TV appearances, including the show ÂRoyal PainsÂŽ and the HBO documentary ÂThe Trans List.ÂŽBy STAN CHOEAP BUSINESS WRITERNEW YORK Â„ U.S. stock indexes ended Tuesday nearly where they began, as interest rates let off the accelerator following their sharp rise last week. But the modest moves for indexes masked some roiling underneath. Raw-material producers plunged on worries that inÂ”ation and weaker demand are eating into their proÂ“ts. On the opposite end were technology stocks and other sectors, which recovered some of the sharp losses caused by last weekÂs rapid rise in interest rates. Altogether, the crosscurrents left the S&P 500 down 4.09 points, or 0.1 percent, at 2,880.34. It had wafÂ”ed between small gains and losses for most of the day, and roughly three stocks rose in the index for every two that fell.

The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger YesterdayÂs Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a female in my mid-60s and recently have been diagnosed with a cyst on my left kidney. I do not have diabetes nor a heart condition, never smoked nor used drugs, don't drink and take over-thecounter or prescription medicines only when absolutely necessary, which is rare. I also don't like, thus never eat, spicy foods, nor do I drink coee/tea/caeine. I have only an occasional candy bar. I know that kidneys lter out bacteria but am still wondering how could a cyst, or any renal ailment, be bestowed on such "clean" kidneys? Can you please also elaborate on kidney cysts? Â„ V.B. ANSWER: A cyst is just a uid-lled sac, and they are common in the kidneys, especially as people get older. They are more common in men: Among adults aged 50-70, 15 percent of men and 7 percent of women have had a kidney cyst. It does not seem that diet or medication predispose someone to developing kidney cysts. They may arise from diverticula (outpouchings) in the kidney's collecting tubule. Obstruction of the tubule, such as by a stone, may predispose to them, too, but it is not necessary for a stone to develop a kidney cyst. Most simple cysts do not require treatment. Once it is clear that the cyst is not cancerous (rare), it can be left alone, or sometimes may require a follow-up scan to be sure the cyst is stable. Incidentally, the kidneys shouldn't have to lter out bacteria. The kidneys lter smalland medium-sized waste products from the blood and help regulate salt and water balance. Bacteria shouldn't be in the blood for more than a few minutes (bacteria sometimes come through the body's defenses, especially in the gastrointestinal tract, from the mouth all the way to the end): There's no reason you should have bacteria in your blood. DEAR DR. ROACH: I nd the warnings about limits on taking acetaminophen (Tylenol) to avoid liver damage very confusing. Regular and extra-strength versions of acetaminophen warn not to take more than 4,000 mg in 24 hours. Other formulations say 3,000 or even 2,000 per day. If I take one Excedrin PM with 250 mg of acetaminophen at night, what are the limits on other acetaminophen products the next day? I sure don't want to risk liver damage, but acetaminophen doesn't cause the digestive problems of NSAIDs. What if you are prescribed Norco? Â„ H.C. ANSWER: You are right that dierent over-the-counter products containing acetaminophen have dierent limits printed on the label. For healthy adults, the limit is 4,000 mg. For people who use alcohol excessively or those with mild liver disease, even that amount is still safe, according to studies, even though many physicians (including myself) would recommend a somewhat more cautious threshold, such as 3,000 mg daily. What's very important is to recognize that many over-the-counter medicines have acetaminophen in them. Also, prescription medications, such as Norco (hydrocodone with acetaminophen, also sold as Vicodin or Lorcet, among others) and Tylenol No. 3 with codeine have acetaminophen as well. People on multiple medicines need to look carefully at all sources to total up their acetaminophen dose for the day to keep their total below the recommended dose.DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 27 years and have three wonderful kids. The youngest is 16. I recently found out I may have another son from a relationship prior to my marriage. The woman never notied me or asked for child support. I found out through someone else a couple of months ago and, thanks to social media, was able to nd him and look at his picture. The problem is, when I mentioned it to my wife, she did not want to discuss the possibility. What would you recommend in a situation like this? Should I say nothing and let it be, or risk ruining my marriage? Â„ Vacillating In Virginia DEAR VACILLATING: I don't see how establishing the truth could "ruin" your marriage unless your wife is self-centered and immature. However, rather than suddenly appear out of nowhere with the news, it might be better to reach out to the woman you had the relationship with, tell her what the friend told you and ask her if it's true. If she concealed the information from her son or from the man who raised him, possibly thinking the boy was his, it could be traumatic for everyone concerned. DEAR ABBY: My daughter, a widow, started going out with men she meets on dating websites last year. She has three children; the youngest is 10. She has a full-time job and doesn't smoke, drink or use drugs. She goes out ve to seven times a week. I have all the responsibility for the children's care, school, church, laundry, cooking, etc. I'm feeling very overburdened. Am I wrong or is it now normal for a mother to go out that much? When she's home, she's constantly checking her texts and social media. Â„ Used In Texas DEAR USED: You are entitled to a life of your own, so stop doing your daughter's job as much as you have been and start doing some things for yourself. Dear Heloise: I read your column every day. I have recipes that call for HEAVY CREAM, but all I see on store shelves is whipped cream. Is there a substitute for heavy cream? Â„ Jerry B., Hammond, La. Jerry, you can make your own heavy cream. It needs j ust two ingredients: 3/4 cup whole milk 1/3 Cup butter Melt the butter. Once it melts, pour it into the milk and stir. You can use your substitute in place of heavy cream, but this will not whip. If you need to whip the cream into peaks, then use a whipping cream.

Page 6 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018 ARIES (March 21-April 19). Becoming you is a never-ending process. ThereÂs something you once would have thought of as a creative risk that now seems like a natural part of who you are. Acknowledge your growth. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The irony is, now that youÂve stopped working for a favorable response, youÂve fallen into a state of extreme favor, to the extent that it almost seems you can do no wrong. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Would you believe some people nd talking harder than physical work? Though you gravitate toward connection, community and conversation, youÂll be dealing with people who donÂt. TheyÂll be glad you came along. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are feeling rather sure of yourself, and why shouldnÂt you be? YouÂve put in the time, the practice and the professional hours, and youÂre about due for some serious payback. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You probably wonÂt be able to shake the sneaking suspicion that a move in any direction will land you in a place thatÂs better than where you currently stand. YouÂre right. This isnÂt bad, but better is on the horizon. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). ItÂs not what you know; itÂs when you say it. And keep in mind that for some bits of knowledge, the best time may very well be never. Anyway, you wonÂt be sorry you used discretion. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A place for everything and everything in its place may work for home organization or a desk drawer, but it doesnÂt work for your heart. Emotions are messy and sometimes defy compartmentalization. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). YouÂll be the great mediator today, and your methods are pretty straightforward. You will ask good questions, listen carefully to the answers and get right to the crux of the problem. Then you sort it out. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Maturity, compassion, selessness Â„ they need no reward. These are transcendent ways of operating in the world, and you donÂt have to wear the behavior long to gure out that itÂs just who you are. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Just as core strength is a foundation of overall tness, character strength is the base from which a good life is built. ItÂs pretty simple to fortify your strength of character. Just do the right thing. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Feeling good will happen one list item at a time. So take out that long page of directives and start working it. YouÂll be amazed at how ticking o the smallest item can lift your spirit high. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The recurring question has to do with what you owe your loved ones, your community and the world at large. ItÂs the same thing on the personal scale as it is on the vast one. TODAYÂS BIRTHDAY (Oct. 10). While a big beautiful life often happens by following through with conscious and deliberate intentions, there have also been times when youÂve overthought it and missed the mark. YouÂll be glad to know that an unusual number of happy accidents and boons of dumb luck will augment your fortunes this solar return. Gemini and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 30, 33, 7 and 16.

ÂThe Trump Administration bungled the response to Hurricane Maria so badly that almost 3,000 people died Â„ we need to get to the bottom of what happened, and that includes Â“guring out why we gave a $30 million contract for necessary emergency supplies to people who didnÂt know what the hell they were doing,ÂŽ Maloney said in a statement. ÂThis audit should be part of a comprehensive look at what this administration did wrong. We canÂt ever let this happen again.ÂŽ Trump has praised his administrationÂs response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico as Âan incredible, unsung success.ÂŽ Democrats on a Senate oversight committee found in April that FEMA failed to adequately research whether winning bidders could deliver as promised. FEMA awarded the company two contracts Oct. 10 to provide 500,000 tarps and 60,000 rolls of plastic sheeting. More than a half dozen others also bid, but FEMA said it could not provide details about their identity or their bids. It was not clear how thoroughly FEMA investigated Bronze Star or its ability to fulÂ“ll the contracts. Formed by two brothers in August, Bronze Star had never before won a government contract or delivered tarps or plastic sheeting. The company was formed less than two months before bidding on FEMAÂs tarp and sheeting contracts.FEMAFROM PAGE 1 he recounted how she has had to work on tough issues, such as Iran and North Korea. White House ofÂ“cials had sought to put a hold on TrumpÂs record-setting turnover in the run-up to the Nov. 6 elections, with aides being asked months ago to step down or commit to stay through Election Day to avoid adding to a sense of turmoil. Still, the prospect of post-midterm changes continues to hang over the West Wing, and HaleyÂs exit was one that has been discussed, according to a senior administration ofÂ“cial not authorized to publicly discuss private conversations. A number of ofÂ“cials speculated that the timing was meant to preserve the ambassadorÂs own political future. A post in the Trump administration has proven to be a rickety stepping-stone to either lucrative private sector work or hopes for higher ofÂ“ce, and the risk to those ambitions might only increase after the elections if Democrats make signiÂ“cant gains in Congress. Trump said Haley Â“rst discussed leaving with him six months ago. The senior ofÂ“cial noted that their conversation coincided with the appointments of Mike Pompeo as secretary of state and John Bolton as national security adviser in an earlier upending of top foreign policy ofÂ“cials. Haley had expressed some frustration that her voice had been diminished as the two men became the aggressive new faces of TrumpÂs international policy, the ofÂ“cial said. More recently, there was the awkward moment at the U.N., when TrumpÂs boasting of American economic strength under his leadership brought laughter at a General Assembly session. He insisted later that the delegates were laughing with him, not at him. The six-month timeline also coincides with a high-proÂ“le spat between Haley and the White House in April, when she drew the presidentÂs ire for previewing in a television appearance the administrationÂs planned imposition of a new round of sanctions on Russia. When the sanctions never materialized, White House ofÂ“cials said the plans had changed without Haley being briefed, and economic adviser Larry Kudlow suggested she was confused. ÂI donÂt get confused,ÂŽ Haley said in a sharply worded response to the West Wing. Haley was appointed to the U.N. post in November 2016 and last month coordinated TrumpÂs second trip to the United Nations, including his Â“rst time chairing the Security Council. A rookie to international politics, the former South Carolina governor was an unusual pick for to be U.N. envoy. ÂIt was a blessing to go into the U.N. every day with body armor,ÂŽ Haley said, saying her job was to defend America on the world stage. Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One he was considering Â“ve candidates for HaleyÂs job and that a successor would be named in two to three weeks Â„ or maybe sooner. Among those under consideration, Trump said, is former deputy national security adviser Dina Powell. Trump told reporters that he has heard his daughter Ivanka TrumpÂs name discussed for the post, but said if he selected her heÂd be accused of nepotism. In a tweet, the presidential senior adviser and eldest daughter praised Haley, saying Trump will Ânominate a formidable replacement for Ambassador.ÂŽ She added: ÂThat replacement will not be me.ÂŽ U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard GrenellÂs name has also been Â”oated for the post, but Trump suggested heÂd rather keep him in his current post Âbecause heÂs doing such a good job.ÂŽHALEYFROM PAGE 1 By BRISTOW MARCHANTTHE STATE (COLUMBIA, S.C.) COLUMBIA, S.C. Â„ Nikki Haley will leave her post as United Nations ambassador with a burnished national reputation. But she also will be leaving public service with up to $1 million in debt. The former South Carolina governorÂs personal finances are detailed in her public financial disclosure as ambassador. HaleyÂs debts include a string of liabilities incurred over her years in the Trump administration and state government. Last year, Nikki Haley and husband, Michael Haley, took on more than $1 million in mortgage debt for an investment-rental property, the 2017 disclosure shows. The Haleys took over a Lexington commercial property with an outstanding mortgage previously owned by the ambassadorÂs parents. That property was sold by the Haleys in January 2018 for $1.2 million, more than enough to pay off the mortgage. However, the Haleys Â„ who also have two college-age children Â„ have other debts as well. In her disclosure, Haley reported she has a personal 30-year mortgage of between $250,000 and $500,000, and a line of credit of up to $500,000. Haley also reported debt on two credit cards as liabilities, one with between $10,000 and $15,000 owed on it, the other with $15,000 to $50,000 owed. Haley reported earning $9,759 as governor in 2017, before she resigned in January to join the Trump administration, as well as a bank account with between $1,000 and $15,000 in it. She also listed her state retirement account as an asset. She did not report any income from her 2012 memoir ÂCanÂt Is Not An Option,ÂŽ saying its value was Ânot readily ascertainable.ÂŽ Michael Haley reported a bank balance of from $15,000 to $50,000, and between $50,000 and $100,000 in rental income from the Lexington property before it was sold. It is unclear what HaleyÂs next move will be when she leaves the U.N. post at the end of the year, but she could transition to a lucrative private-sector job. ÂThe rewards after two successful terms as governor could be great, whether that means serving on boards and commissions or something else,ÂŽ said former South Carolina Republican Party chairman Katon Dawson. ÂIÂm not sure if thatÂs why she did it. But I know those opportunities will be available.ÂŽHaley will leave UN ambassadorÂs office with up to $1 million in debt adno=3618721-1 2006 CHEVROLET HHR ..................LT MODEL, SUNBURST ORANGE ............................. $4,587 2012 BUICK LACROSSE .................ONE OWNER, CXL MODEL, LOADED ........................ $12,887 2009 TOYOTA TACOMA ..................REG CAB, AIR, 5 SPD.......................................SALE! $7818 2014 JEEP WRANGLER... ...............SPORT S MODEL, AUTOMATIC, 4X4 ........................ $21,587 2015 FORD TAURUS......... ..............ONE OWNER, 28,000 MILES, NICE! ..................NA VIGATION 2016 RAM 1500............. ................BIG HORN, CREW CAB, 4X4, NICE ...............................

When the season starts next week, there will be the leagueÂs Â“rst head coach born and raised outside North America and the Â“rst HispanicAmerican full-time head coach. And thereÂs a real chance that before long, someone like Becky Hammon could become the Â“rst woman to lead a NBA club. In a league where minorities make up the overwhelming majority of stars on the Â”oor, thereÂs still a movement to make those same diverse strides in who is calling the shots on the sideline. ÂThe league is starting to move in a direction with the coaches of being more diverse,ÂŽ said Memphis coach J.B. Bickerstaff, whose father also was a head coach in the NBA. ÂAnd itÂs just about opportunity and everybody wants an equal playing Â“eld. And I think when you get an equal playing Â“eld you know people from all backgrounds can rise to the occasion.ÂŽ ThatÂs what the Suns believed when they hired Igor Kokoskov, a native of Serbia, and the Charlotte Hornets did when they tabbed James Borrego Â„ the leagueÂs Â“rst full-time Hispanic coach. BorregoÂs whose seat on the front row of the SpursÂ bench was inherited by Hammon after she was promoted by San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich Â„ after a summer where Hammon was a candidate to take over in Milwaukee. PopovichÂs team has long been at the forefront of Â“nding talented players in places far outside the U.S. and itÂs no surprise heÂs thought outside the box to grow his coaching tree.

By RICK STROUDTAMPA BAY TIMESTAMPA Â„ Ali Marpet is one of the great Â“nds by the Bucs, a Div. III player from tiny Hobart College in Geneva, N.Y. He has started 44 games, at three different positions, since being selected in the second round of the 2015 draft. On Tuesday, the Bucs made Marpet one of the highest-paid guards in the NFL, signing him to a Â“ve-year contract extension worth $10.825-million per year. It also includes $27.125 million in guarantees. The deal makes Marpet, 25, the third highest-paid left guard in the NFL in terms of average salary behind the Jaguars Andrew Norwell ($13.3-million) and the Raiders Kelechi Osemele ($11.7 million). The 6-foot-4, 307-pound Marpet also has played right guard and center. He was moved to left guard this season with the signing of Ravens free agent center Ryan Jensen. The Bucs traded up in the second-round in 2015 to draft Marpet, who was a relative unknown except in some NFL circles until he became the Â“rst Div. III player picked to play in the 2015 Senior Bowl. It was the same draft that the Bucs took quarterback Jameis Winston No. 1 overall and used another second-round pick on Penn State left tackle Donovan Smith. Marpet has been a selÂ”ess player for the Bucs. He began his career at right guard but last season, the team moved him to center. Offensive line coach George Warhop said he believed Marpet could make a Pro Bucs sign Ali Marpet to a five-year contract extension worth $10.825 million per year TAMPA BAY TIMES PHOTOBuccaneers oensive guard, shown here Ali Marpet (74) signing the helmet of JJ Thararuck, 6, of Tampa as JJÂs mother Tiany watches Friday, Aug. 3, 2018.

SPORTS ON TVBy DOUG FERGUSONAP GOLF WRITERBrooks Koepka had two sets of daily reminders for a season that PGA Tour players voted as the best. One was his annual list of goals that he writes every Jan. 1 during quiet time on the beach, some of them golf speciÂ“c, some of them about life. He tacks the list in the middle of his closet so he canÂt miss it when heÂs getting dressed, packing for a trip or getting his watch and wallet. ÂIÂm deÂ“nitely ahead of schedule on certain things,ÂŽ Koepka said Tuesday. No doubt he was referring to winning two majors, which made him the obvious choice as PGA Tour player of the year. His second straight U.S. Open title made him the Â“rst back-to-back winner since Curtis Strange in 1988-89. His two-shot victory in the PGA Championship made him only the Â“fth player in 100 years to win in the same season the two U.S. majors held on different courses. And he missed on a few goals. One was to not miss a cut, which ended in Canada with a 77 in the opening round that led to a weekend off. Another was to Â“nish in the top 10 in half of his events. And then there was one that made him laugh just to say it. ÂStay healthy,ÂŽ Koepka said. His left wrist was bothering him last December in the Bahamas, where he Â“nished last in an 18-man Â“eld, 21 shots out of the lead. A month of rest didnÂt help. He started the new year at Kapalua and Â“nished last in a 34-man Â“eld, 37 shots behind. Only then did he discover a partially torn tendon that kept him out of the Masters during his four months away from golf. That led to the second reminder. It was a quote from Kobe Bryant after the Los Angeles Lakers great ruptured his Achilles tendon. Koepka set the quote as wallpaper eight months ago so that he would see it every time he activated his phone. ÂIt was too long for me to quote it exactly, but it was to wake up every day and Â“nd the positive because you were one step closer to being you, and to enjoy the moments of frustration because with each step you get better and better, and to embrace those moments,ÂŽ Koepka said. ÂI just changed it the other day.ÂŽ Koepka leaves this weekend for the start of a new PGA Tour season, even though the year isnÂt over. He is playing the CJ Cup in South Korea, followed by the HSBC Champions in Shanghai, and then his title defense at the Dunlop Phoenix in Japan the weekend before Thanksgiving. This was his one week at home, a chance to more clearly view the happy side to the year. The ballots were sent to PGA Tour players right after the Tour Championship. In the week before the votes were due, Koepka was part of his Â“rst losing U.S. team at the Ryder Cup. One of his tee shots during the opening session struck a spectator, causing her to lose sight in her right eye. He was shaken when it happened, and then the following week when he learned the extent of the damage. ÂIÂm heartbroken,ÂŽ he said at St. Andrews for the Dunhill Links Championship. There also was a report that Koepka and Dustin Johnson, one of his best friends in golf, had to be separated during a skirmish at a Ryder Cup party. Koepka says they didnÂt Â“ght and that he and Johnson found the report to be Âfunny.ÂŽ Johnson was at The BearÂs Club when Koepka won the Jack Nicklaus Award, and they made a short video poking fun at the Â“ght before Johnson congratulated him on winning player of the year. ÂIÂve got one of these, too,ÂŽ Johnson said. ÂWell, this bad boyÂs mine,ÂŽ Koepka replied. Getting another one will be no small feat if Koepka chooses to put that on next yearÂs list. He is the sixth winner in the last six years, the longest streak since players began voting on the award in 1990. The most recent winners were Justin Thomas, Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods. Thomas and Johnson won three times and took turns at No. 1. That doesnÂt trump two majors by a guy who spotted the Â“eld some four months. ÂSo many guys can take over the top spot,ÂŽ Koepka said. ÂItÂs probably the best group of guys that IÂve ever seen, and they keep coming. And you throw Tiger into the mix now. You never know whatÂs going to happen.ÂŽ Koepka never saw a year like this coming, at least not the way it started.Messages motivate Koepka AP PHOTO In this Aug. 12, 2018, Â“le photo, Brooks Koepka holds the Wanamaker Trophy after he won the PGA Championship golf tournament at Bellerive Country Club, in St. Louis.

The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3 After spotting Sarasota Christian a 14-11 lead in a contested first set, Nina entered the game and changed the complexion of it. Once Nina took the floor, Port Charlotte closed out the set on a 14-6 run. The set was capped at 25-20 with an ace from junior Kiersten Tisdale. Â(Nina) brings a lot of ball control and an explosiveness,ÂŽ Port Charlotte coach Kevin Krause said. ÂSheÂs an awesome passer and good all around.ÂŽ In the second set it was much of the same. The first half was tight, but Port Charlotte sparked a 13-3 run yet again to take a commanding 20-11 lead. Sarasota Christian began to surge toward the end, but a forceful kill from sophomore Alcia Kowalski, giving the Lady Pirates a 25-18 set win. Port Charlotte exuded a certain fire across the court in the win. From Nina to Kowalski to senior Alani Qualls, balls were being fired toward the Lady Blazers with authority. ÂItÂs huge,ÂŽ Nina said. ÂHonestly our passing has gotten a lot better from last week to this week. WeÂve been doing a lot of passing in practice and I think itÂs showing because now weÂre able to set our middles and our middles are so powerful. ThatÂs an easy side out point.ÂŽ Port Charlotte got off to a hotter start in the third set. An early 14-4 run gave them a 17-7 lead that would carry the Lady Pirates to a 25-14 set win and the match victory. Junior Maggie Poulakis served up three straight aces to seal the match. Qualls led the team with nine kills, adding two blocks as well. Nina finished with four kills, an ace and a block. For seniors Christina Collins, Makenzie Stewart, Samantha DiBene and Qualls, thereÂs plenty of unfinished business as the Lady Pirates look to repeat as Class 7A District 10 champs. If itÂs up to the team, TuesdayÂs win wonÂt be their last. But they enjoyed it as if it was. ÂWe had lots of fun out there,ÂŽ Qualls said. ÂWe were just kind of playing for the seniors and having a good time all together.ÂŽ Email Jacob Hoag at Jhoag@sun-herald. com and follow him on Twitter @ByJacobHoag.SENIORSFROM PAGE 1Port CharlotteÂs McKenzie Stewart (7) defends against Sarasota ChristianÂs Cassie Bontrager (8) Tuesday, October 9. 2018 at Port Charlotte High School.

After entering the game with every intention of contending for the win, the Pirates Â”opped on defense and sputtered on offense with the exception of two late touchdown drives with the game out of hand. The list of negatives far surpassed the positives, but thatÂs not to say the Pirates have put that game behind them, pretending it didnÂt happen Â„ no matter how much theyÂd like to. ÂWe just got out played, outcoached, out-everthinged,ÂŽ Port Charlotte coach Jordan Ingman said. ÂBut itÂs not in the past. We learn from it still every day. We think about it and get better from it. As young as we are, we have to take every teachable moment and try to extract all information from it. ÂWe havenÂt looked away from it or forgotten about it in any way because there was so many teachable moments. As hard as they are, youÂve gotta learn from them. You canÂt look away from it or youÂve wasted a failure as Saban says.ÂŽ The Pirates had plenty of time for reÂ”ection over the last 12 days as they regrouped over the timely bye week. TheyÂve poured over the Â“lm, theyÂve tweaked their schemes and most importantly, theyÂve shifted their focus to the Â“nal stretch of the season. Needing to win out, to put themselves in the best possible position to slide into the playoffs, the next four games Â„ mainly the matchup with the Tarpons on Oct. 26 Â„ begin their playoffs. If the Pirates win out and beat Charlotte, North Fort Myers would be in the driver seat to win the district with two wins already. In the FHSAA Class 6A power rankings, Charlotte and Cape Coral currently sit ahead of the Pirates, but thereÂs plenty of football left to play. Much like last year, Ingman believes if they can get to 8-2, they have a good chance of reaching the postseason. ÂWeÂre in a must win situation,ÂŽ Ingman said. ÂIf we win out I feel like weÂll be in. We know we have to win every game from here on out and IÂm sure there are some scenarios that may go against us, but itÂs to early to tell. Last year we were 8-2 and we were the six seed. So we feel if we go 8-2 again, weÂll have a good shot to make it in.ÂŽ The Â“rst two teams up are Ida Baker and Island Coast, who will catch a team eager to reprove themselves at the wrong time. The Bulldogs and Gators have combined for a single win and just over seven combined points per game this season. The next two games provide a favorable opportunity for Port Charlotte to regain their mojo and tune up for the battle royale that awaits afterward. ÂThat deÂ“nitely wasnÂt how we expected that game (against North Fort Myers) to go, but our playoff chances arenÂt over,ÂŽ senior offensive lineman Caden Marcum said. ÂOctober 26, thatÂs our main focus. We go there and win and we have a good chance to go to the playoffs. WeÂre looking forward.ÂŽ Email Jacob Hoag at Jhoag@sun-herald.com and follow him on Twitter @ByJacobHoag.Tough loss gone, but not forgotten for Pirates PHOTOS BY TOM OÂNEILLPort Charlotte running back Marc Jean-Louis (3) carries against Sarasota on September 21, 2018 at Port Charlotte High School.

PREP FOOTBALL By STEPHEN MCKAYSUN CORRESPONDENTThough the North Port Lady Bobcats hosted Pink-Out Night to beneÂ“t breast cancer awareness Tuesday night, they also managed to give a hearty workout to many of their fans hearts. Throughout much of the night the Bobcats volleyball squad found itself trying to dig itself out of one hole after another. But as the cardiac ÂCats were at their best when facing their greatest adversity, they managed to pull off a 3-1 victory over the DeSoto Bulldogs in a non-district contest. ÂWe have a lot of work to do even though weÂre nearing the end of our season,ÂŽ said BobcatsÂ head coach Chassity Taylor. ÂBut, the only reason we came out on top tonight is because of the Â“ght these girls have. They refused to give up.ÂŽ North Port won by set scores of 25-18, 19-25, 3028 and 25-21. In all four games, including those they won, North Port trailed most of the way. In the opener, the Bobcats managed three early one-point leads before DeSoto took over to lead by as many as Â“ve points. Slowly they managed to crawl back to forge ties at 15 and 16. But after falling behind 18-17, the game took a dramatic turn. With sophomore Olivia Deivert at the service line, North Port reeled off the Â“nal nine points of the game for the come-from-behind win. ÂI just did what I could to help my teammates out,ÂŽ said Deivert. ÂI tried to pick my spots and my teammates did the rest.ÂŽ While Deivert scored a pair of aces during the Â“nal run, she was aided by strong sets from senior Sydney Hoggarth and a pair of kills each by Abby Hutchinson and Zoey Daniels. Hutchinson Â“nished the match with a team high 14 kills while Daniels added another 10. The Bobcats led only brieÂ”y in game two, the only one they ultimately dropped. Game three looked to be an even greater struggle. North Port trailed by as many as eight points and didnÂt gain its Â“rst lead until overtime. First tying the game at 22-22, consecutive kills by Hutchinson and Daniels Â“nally gave the ÂCats a 25-24 lead. Freshman Halee Rhoads blocked a pair of kill attempts by DeSoto in overtime and Hutchinson tipped over the winning point. A 1-0 lead was all North Port could manage in the fourth game before quickly falling behind by nine points. A Hutchinson kill gave the home team its Â“rst lead at 19-18 with Deivert again at the service line. Deivert Â“rst took over with her team behind 18-15. Deivert helped turn a three-point deÂ“cit into a Â“ve-point advantage. Daniels had the Â“nal say in the match with a strong kill to mid-court. ÂBeing behind is sometimes the most fun you can have,ÂŽ said Daniels. ÂIt really gets me going and the team really pulls together when we have to Â“ght for it. We all kind of feed off each other in those tough situations.ÂŽ Deivert and Hoggarth led the team in aces with 5 and 4 respectively. Hutchinson added to her strong night at the net with a team high 5 blocks. The Bobcats will Â“nish their regular season at home on Thursday at 7 p.m. On senior night the team will honor its two seniors Hoggarth and Kristina Sherstobitova.Bobcats defeat Bulldgos PREP VOLLEYBALL 2 0 1 8 1 0 1 0 s p r t 0 3 0 0 1 p d f 1 1 0 O c t 1 8 0 3 : 4 8 : 2 2
Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018By TOM WITHERSAP SPORTS WRITERCLEVELAND Â„ When the challenge arose in August, the Houston Astros responded like champions. TheyÂre doing it again in October. Two months ago, last yearÂs World Series winners hit one of those predictable lulls that every team encounters during the dog days of a season. Maybe feeling a bit overconÂ“dent and invincible, the Astros were caught atop the AL West by the Oakland Athletics, a scrappy squad that sneaked up on everyone in 2018. But just when it appeared the Astros might be in some trouble, they switched on their after-burners. After Aug. 18, Houston went 29-10 to Â“nish with 103 wins. ÂThere is an extra gear that our guys have,ÂŽ explained manager A.J. Hinch. ÂAnd once we hit the postseason, it looks like, as of right now, our guys really, really turned it on.ÂŽ Showing no weaknesses while exposing ClevelandÂs Â”aws at every opportunity, the Astros took another step toward defending their crown Monday by Â“nishing off a surprisingly easy three-game AL Division Series sweep with an 11-3 blowout of the Indians, who were overmatched on the mound, at the plate and in the Â“eld. Houston outscored Cleveland 21-6. The Astros outhit the Indians .327 to .144 and banged out eight homers with making an error. ÂThey beat us in every area of the game,ÂŽ said Indians reliever Trevor Bauer, whose two throwing errors in the seventh inning of Game 3 propelled HoustonÂs convincing clincher. ÂTheyÂre tough, man. They keep coming. We didnÂt play our best. IÂm not sure if they played their best either, but they played much better than we did. And so, the better team won.ÂŽ The Astros, who have some time to relax and get ready for the BostonNew York series survivor in the ALCS, can win in so many different ways. They have one of baseballÂs best rotations, anchored by Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole, a devastating 1-2 pitching punch that staggered the Indians in Houston. The Astros can play long ball, small ball and any kind of ball needed with a balanced lineup loaded with contact hitters. Sure, theyÂve got AllStars in Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman, but the Astros are a selÂ”ess group that plays as one. ÂWe have the most complete team in baseball,ÂŽ Verlander said between puffs on a cigar as his teammates showered each other with champagne in the clubhouse. ÂIÂve been part of really special teams, but the drive to win here trumps everything else. Everybody is OK with whoever is the hero.ÂŽ It was Verlander in Game 1, Marwin Gonzalez in Game 2, and George Springer was among a number of deserving candidates with two homers in Game 3. Springer has found his groove at just the right time. The 2017 World Series MVP was sidelined by a sprained left thumb that landed him on the disabled list in August. He struggled after returning and connected on just three homers over the Â“nal six weeks of the regular season. The postseason is his playground. Springer hit three homers in the Â“nal two ALDS game, giving him a franchise record 10 postseason homers. ÂI said this to our team in there Â„ special teams do special things in October,ÂŽ Hinch said. ÂAnd I believe that about players. George is one of them. WeÂve seen him come up as an uber-prospect, produce at an uncanny level, hit the lowest of the lows in the World Series and then be the World Series MVP. ÂI donÂt think this should surprise anyone. HeÂs a really special player.ÂŽ On a really special team. Before his team was pushed aside by the Astros, Indians manager Terry Francona sat at his ofÂ“ce desk and described what makes them so good. ÂWell, besides the talent, because they are obviously really talented, I do think they do a really good job of playing until the gameÂs over,ÂŽ he said. ÂLike itÂs been noticeable for a while. You know some times, like I think I said this the other day, when you beat them, sometimes they just run out of time. ÂYou gotta have talent, but when you have talent and you play the game the right way, so thatÂs why they have a lot of ways to come at you.ÂŽ Oddly, the Astros seem to get overlooked, lost deep in the heart of Texas amid the endless debate about whether the Yankees or Red Sox are the leagueÂs best. Houston makes its case on the Â“eld. ÂThatÂs a big-time rivalry and I understand that,ÂŽ Springer said, adding the Astros arenÂt craving publicity. ÂBut itÂs all about us and our task at hand. ThatÂs all we focus on. WeÂre going to sit back and watch and see what happens.ÂŽ While he watched his young teammates party after another postseason triumph, Verlander looked like a proud father. He arrived last season to help the Astros get over the hump, and now that they have, thereÂs no going backward. ÂAt no point this season was there any complacency with this team,ÂŽ he said. ÂIf I had been traded here after they won the World Series, instead of before it last year, I would have assumed this was a young and hungry team when I walked in the clubhouse. ÂNo one takes anything for granted here. ThatÂs the DNA of the guys in this clubhouse. This team has a propensity to do big things in big spots.ÂŽ MLB: Houston AstrosEasy as 1-2-3: Astros put on spectacular show in ALDS sweep By TOM WITHERSAP SPORTS WRITERCLEVELAND Â„ For the third year in a row, the unmistakable aroma of champagne wafted into the hallway outside the visitorÂs clubhouse following the Â“nal game at Progressive Field. On the Cleveland side, the smell was sour. The Indians were built for one goal: to win their Â“rst World Series since 1948. Yet after cruising to a third straight AL Central title, they couldnÂt get past the Â“rst round. October rejects again. ÂWe had a good year,ÂŽ said pitcher Trevor Bauer, whose shift from the starting rotation to the bullpen for the postseason maybe best summed up ClevelandÂs unsatisfying, disjointed season. ÂWe deÂ“nitely could have gone further. We had a lot of talent here and it didnÂt go our way.ÂŽ Nothing went ClevelandÂs way. But beyond being swept by the impressive Houston Astros, who were superior at every level, the Indians barely put up a Â“ght. Postseason push-overs. The Indians were so close in 2016, when they took the Chicago Cubs into extra innings in Game 7 of the World Series. Now theyÂve lost six straight playoff games since opening a 2-0 lead in last yearÂs ALDS against the Yankees. ÂThis isnÂt the way we drew it up,ÂŽ said reliever Andrew Miller. ÂThis is 25, 40 guys that have plans of winning the World Series. It obviously didnÂt go our way.ÂŽ Other than All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor, who batted .364 and homered twice, the top of ClevelandÂs lineup bordered on embarrassing. Michael Brantley, Jose Ramirez, Edwin Encarnacion and Josh Donaldson hit a combined .095 (4 of 42) with two RBIs, zero extra-base hits and 12 strikeouts. ItÂs the second straight postseason Â”op for Ramirez, who was an MVP candidate until he faded down the stretch. HeÂs now 2 for 31 in two playoff appearances, an alarming trend heÂll have to wait a year at least to address. Following MondayÂs loss, Ramirez had to be coaxed to speak with reporters by Encarnacion before delivering answers as futile as his swings. ÂI didnÂt perform to how I wanted to,ÂŽ he said through a translator. ÂBut these are things that happen in baseball.ÂŽ ClevelandÂs pitching wasnÂt much better. Ace Corey Kluber had his second straight puzzling postseason as the 20-game winner didnÂt look like himself in Game 1. The bullpen, a mess for months, completely collapsed in Game 3 after BauerÂs two throwing errors in the seventh inning opened the Â”ood gates for HoustonÂs 11-3 rout. There are numerous reasons why the Indians arenÂt moving on, but the teamÂs failure to address the bullpenÂs issues, which began when Bryan Shaw and Joe Smith werenÂt resigned last winter, is at the top of the list. Because Miller, Cody Allen and Co. couldnÂt be counted on, manager Terry Francona moved Bauer, arguably the teamÂs best starter who was on his way to a possible Cy Young when a line drive broke his leg in August, into a relief role. The decision backÂ“red, and while itÂs easy to second-guess Francona following the IndiansÂ early exit, Bauer wasnÂt comfortable in his role. ÂUnfortunate that I got hit with the line drive, kind of disrupted the Â”ow for me personally,ÂŽ Bauer said. ÂPersonally, a lot of bitterness about that. And as a team, I think that we have a good group of core players here, so thereÂs a lot of hope for the future.ÂŽ Looking ahead, the Indians should stay atop their division. But thatÂs no longer enough. Cleveland will return one of baseballÂs best starting staffs in Kluber, Bauer, Carlos Carrasco and Mike Clevinger, the Â“rst foursome in baseball history to reach 200 strikeouts apiece. The bullpen, though, will likely look very different with Miller, Allen and Oliver Perez eligible for free agency. Allen is the teamÂs career leader in saves, but his ERA bloated to a career-worst 4.70 this season and his struggles Â„ and impending free agency Â„ led to the Indians trading top prospect Francisco Mejia to San Diego for lefty Brad Hand, who may take over as ClevelandÂs closer in 2019. With Lindor and Ramirez under contract through 2021 and Encarnacion and under control until 2020, the IndiansÂ core remains at championship level. Brantley, Donaldson, Melky Cabrera, Lonnie Chisenhall and Rajai Davis are all expected to be on the freeagent market, so Cleveland could have a different look at several positons in Â19. As his teammates shared somber yet heartfelt hugs after MondayÂs loss, Brantley stood near his corner locker and spoke quietly with Josh Tomlin, the teamÂs longest-tenured player. Tomlin didnÂt make the postseason roster and surely wonÂt return. For years, Brantley and Tomlin have represented the IndiansÂ heart and soul Â„ two selÂ”ess, dedicated role models for the teamÂs younger players. BrantleyÂs inspirational comeback from an injury-shortened 2017 season may pressure the Indians to re-sign him. HeÂll be 32 in May, but there arenÂt many better outÂ“elders in the game and fewer mean as much to their team as Brantley does to the Indians. When the IndiansÂ Â“nally surrendered in Game 3, with orange-clad Houston fans outnumbering Cleveland, BrantleyÂs mind turned to his future Â„ and the real possibility of leaving. ÂIÂve got a lot of thinking to do,ÂŽ he said. ÂIÂve got my family to talk to. IÂve got these guys in this room to still talk to. Then, weÂll go from there. You never know whatÂs going to happen in the offseason.ÂŽ For the Indians, this postseason felt more predictable.Bitter finish: IndiansÂ first-round exit leaves sour taste AP PHOTOCleveland IndiansÂ Jason Kipnis, left, is hugged by starting pitcher Mike Clevinger after the Houston Astros defeated the Indians 11-3 in Game 3 of a baseball American League Division Series, Monday, in Cleveland. MLB: Cleveland IndiansBy PAUL NEWBERRYAP SPORTS WRITERATLANTA (AP) Â„ Even with all their star power and deep pockets, all their booming hitters and ace pitchers, the Los Angeles Dodgers are approaching three decades since their last World Series championship. TheyÂre making another run at that elusive title. Only this time, Manny Machado is along for the ride. The slugging shortstop hit a three-run homer that wrapped up a 6-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Monday, sending Los Angeles to the NL Championship Series for the third year in a row and fourth time in six seasons. This is what the Dodgers had in mind when they acquired the free agentto-be from the lowly Baltimore Orioles back in July. TheyÂre hoping Machado is the one who turns Tinseltown into Titletown for the Â“rst time since 1988. ÂCanÂt say enough about him,ÂŽ Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said. ÂA player of his caliber, there are so many expectations put on him.ÂŽ Machado had only three hits in a 3-1 division series victory over the Braves, but two of them were homers. He Â“nished with six RBIs. ÂWe prepared ourselves to get here,ÂŽ Machado said. ÂWeÂre not going to stop till we get what we want.ÂŽ Clearly, nothing less than a World Series title will do. While the Dodgers went through the customary celebration that follows any postseason victory Â„ they doled out T-shirts and caps, posed for pictures in the middle of SunTrust Park, then doused themselves with beer in the clubhouse Â„ the focus turned quickly to the next round. The Dodgers will face the Brewers in the NLCS. Game 1 is Friday night in Milwaukee. ÂWe all know that thereÂs a lot more work to be done,ÂŽ Roberts said. ÂWe have eight more wins to go.ÂŽ Los Angeles spent much of the season locked in a tight race with division rivals Colorado and Arizona, and required a one-game playoff with the Rockies to clinch its sixth straight NL West title. ÂWe took a hard path to get to this point, but I do think it made us stronger and kind of galvanized our team,ÂŽ Roberts said. It certainly helps to have a player of MachadoÂs caliber bolstering an already potent lineup. The Dodgers hit a franchise-record 235 homers during the regular season, and added eight more in the NLDS. ÂTheyÂre a very powerful team,ÂŽ Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said. ÂItÂs what theyÂve done all year is hit home runs. WeÂre not built like that yet.ÂŽ Indeed, the Baby Braves were thoroughly overmatched in their Â“rst postseason appearance since 2013, hitting .154 overall and scoring just eight runs. Though the future looks bright for a team that pulled off a massive rebuilding job much quicker than expected, Atlanta was not quite ready to contend with a team of the DodgersÂ quality. Los Angeles had too much power, too much depth, too much pitching. Not to mention too much Machado. ÂIt was a great ride,ÂŽ Snitker said. ÂWe took a huge step forward this year. We had some very young players get a lot of great experience, both during the regular season and the postseason. And we have some really good players coming up. I really am excited about the future of the Atlanta Braves right now.ÂŽ The Dodgers are locked Â“rmly in the present. This is a franchise desperate to win one more game than it did a season ago, when the Houston Astros took Game 7 of the World Series at Dodger Stadium. ThatÂs why they acquired Machado. ÂComing over from Baltimore midway through the season Â„ new ball club, new atmosphere, new teammates, new coaching staff, new front ofÂ“ce, I mean, itÂs always a bit of an adjustment,ÂŽ he said. ÂBut theyÂve been nothing but amazing to us, to myself and my family. And coming here to a winning ballclub thatÂs been determined the whole way since last year to get into this situation and further, IÂm just sitting here enjoying everything, enjoying the ride.ÂŽ Machado wasnÂt the only in-season acquisition to play a key role in the clinching victory over the Braves. David Freese, picked up from Pittsburgh just minutes before the trade deadline, came through with a pinch-hit, two-run single that put the Dodgers ahead to stay in the sixth. The MVP of St. LouisÂ improbable victory in the 2011 World Series, Freese is eager to take part in another magical postseason run. ÂYou never know what this game is going to give you, what opportunities arise for you,ÂŽ Freese said. ÂYou just gotta be ready.ÂŽDodgers counting on Machado to push them over Series hump MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers

Page 6 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018By RALPH D. RUSSOAP COLLEGE FOOTBALL WRITERThe Associated Press has been honoring college footballÂs best with an All-America team since 1925. The AP midseason All-America team will be released Oct. 16. The full three-team AP All-America selections will be unveiled in December. The Â“fth All-America watch of the season features a Miami defensive tackle dominating as a senior, FloridaÂs emerging star safety and Old DominionÂs X-factor.SpotlightGerald Willis III, DT, Miami The road to stardom for the former blue-chip recruit has been circuitous Willis started his career at Florida in 2014, transferred to Miami, sat out a season, injured his knee in 2016, and stepped away from football last year. He returned this year to Â“ll a major need for the Hurricanes on their defensive front. The 300-pound senior has been a star for one of the best defenses in the nation, ranking second overall in tackles for loss with 12.5. No. 16 Miami leads FBS in that category with 12 per game. The Outland Trophy, which goes to the top interior lineman in college football, named him its player of the month for September. What they are saying: ÂGerald is playing as good as anybody weÂve had here, for sure.ÂŽ Â„ Miami defensive coordinator Manny Diaz. Outlook: This is the year of the defensive lineman in college football so Willis will have to keep up his torrid pace to be an All-American at that position.WhoÂs hotBrad Stewart, S, Florida Stewart made the play of the game against LSU last week for the 14thranked Gators, returning an interception for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. It wasnÂt just one play, though. According to Pro Football Focus College, Stewart was the highest-graded player in the game for Florida. The sophomore from New Orleans was pushed into a starting role due to injuries this season and over the last three games he has settled in as one of the best players on a very good defense.WhoÂs notWill Grier, QB, West Virginia Grier had three interceptions against Kansas, all in scoring territory, and fumbled. He has six interceptions this season. The preseason All-American has mostly been great, averaging 363 yards passing per game with 21 touchdown passes. He is unquestionably a Heisman contender. But some of the other quarterbacks around the country, speciÂ“cally AlabamaÂs Tua Tagovailoa, OklahomaÂs Kyler Murray and Ohio StateÂs Dwayne Haskins, have been so good that Grier needs to be spectacular just to keep up. DonÂt bet against him doing just that.Group of five starOshane Ximines, DE, Old Dominion Old Dominion made a lot of noise by upsetting Virginia Tech, but Ximines has been making plays all season. The senior has 7.5 sacks, which is tied for second in the nation and one behind the school record of 8.5 he had last year. At 6-foot-4 and 255 pounds, Ximines has gone from two-star recruit to legitimate NFL draft prospect.On the line(ESPN analyst Cole Cubelic, a former guard at Auburn, identiÂ“es an offensive lineman playing at an All-America level) Garrett Bradbury, C, North Carolina State. The Â“fth-year senior is in his third season as a starter for the 20th-ranked Wolfpack, leading a line that has allowed only two sacks in Â“ve games. ÂHe excels with quickness reaching a nose guard or climbing to her second level. ÂHas enough power to hold his own at the line of scrimmage and help double-teams.ÂŽ Â„ Cubelic.All-America matchupMichigan DEs Chase Winovich and Rashan Gary vs. Wisconsin OL David Edwards, Jon Dietzen and Cole Van Lanen. Winovich and Gary might be the best pair of defensive ends on one team in the country. Gary was a preseason second-team All-American. He plays the strong side and tends to face more double-teams. Winovich is a relentless pass rusher from the weak side and tends to get one-on-one matchups he can exploit. WisconsinÂs offensive line has three players, including Edwards, who received preseason All-America recognition. Edward takes the right side tackle spot and Dietzen and Van Lanen rotate on the left. The sophomore Van Lanen has been taking on a bigger load lately. Against Nebraska last week, Van Lanen graded out as one of the best blockers in the country, according to Pro Football Focus College.AP All-America Watch: Miami DÂs middle man; ODU X-factor AP FILE PHOTOIn this Sept. 27, 2018, le photo, North Carolina quarterback Chazz Surratt (12) dives in for a touchdown as he is tackled by Miami defensive lineman Gerald Willis III (9) during the rst half of an NCAA college football game in Miami Gardens, Fla. Willis is second in the nation in tackles for loss with 12.5. COLLEGE FOOTBALL By MARK LONGAP SPORTS WRITERGAINESVILLE, Fla. Â„ Florida coach Dan Mullen opened his Â“rst team meeting this week talking about handling success. HeÂll Â“nd out Saturday if anyone was paying attention. Coming off the programÂs most signiÂ“cant victory in three years and with a rivalry game against No. 2 Georgia looming in two weeks, the 14th-ranked Gators are facing the sometimes-daunting task of avoiding a letdown at Vanderbilt. ÂWe won, so guess what, TwitterÂs going to tell you how great we are,ÂŽ Mullen said. ÂIf you like being told how great you are, get back to work and letÂs win again, OK? If youÂd rather be told that youÂre no good and you stink, well then you donÂt have to work very hard and everyone will tell us we wonÂt win the game and then everybody will tell us how bad we are. ÂWhen you walk on campus like today, everyoneÂs patting you on the back, right? ItÂs only about six inches lower that theyÂre kicking you in the rear end, right? ItÂs about that much difference. I like the pat on the back rather than the kick in the rear end, so letÂs just keep working to keep it six inches higher.ÂŽ Florida (5-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) has won four straight since losing at home to Kentucky, none bigger than last weekendÂs 27-19 victory against then-No. 5 LSU. ItÂs the teamÂs longest winning streak since a 6-0 start in 2015 that included a lopsided win over then-No. 3 Mississippi. The Gators have been up and down since. If they want to keep going in the right direction, they have to Â“nd a way to get motivated for an 11 a.m. kickoff on the road against one of the Â“ve SEC teams without a league victory and in front of an expected crowd of about 30,000. ÂWe deÂ“nitely understand,ÂŽ receiver Josh Hammond said. ÂWeÂre going to treat Vanderbilt as a big game because itÂs the next game coming up. WeÂve still got to be ready to prepare and treat it as if itÂs a national championship game and come out ready to practice and continue to get better. ÂI think that will be the biggest thing moving forward: just to not let our improvement that we keep making going up and let it slip or plateau. WeÂve got to continue to get better, get better, get better and it will propel us into the game on Saturday.ÂŽ The Gators have won four in a row and 26 of the last 27 against Vandy (3-3, 0-2). Instead of focusing on how one-sided the series has been or that the Commodores lost their two conference games this season by a combined 51 points, Mullen pointed to how tough Vanderbilt has played Florida in the past. The Gators shouldnÂt require much of a reminder since the last three games have been close. Florida needed a late Â“eld goal for a 9-7 victory in 2015 and three turnovers to win 13-6 the following year in Nashville. The Gators had a little more breathing room last year, but the 38-24 outcome was a one-score game until Malik DavisÂ late touchdown run. ÂFor our guys to have any thought except for how hard I can go on the next play would be us taking a step backwards as a team,ÂŽ Mullen said. ÂThat has to be the focus of everybody within the program.ÂŽTrap game? No. 14 Florida trying to avoid letdown vs Vandy top assistant is Italian Ettore Messina, and Brett Brown had been coaching for nearly two decades in Australia before Popovich hired the current Philadelphia head coach for his staff. ÂItÂs got nothing to do with quotas or anything like that, just people who are qualiÂ“ed for jobs and getting the opportunity,ÂŽ Popovich said. ÂSo, there are no ceilings for anybody based on race or religion or gender or anything like that.ÂŽ NBA Commissioner Adam Silver asked teams to review their hiring practices in the front ofÂ“ce following the workplace harassment investigation of the Dallas Mavericks, with the hope of more women being hired at the senior levels. He doesnÂt have the same concerns at the coaching level, in part because of HammonÂs success. When she coached the Spurs to the Summer League title in 2015, Silver said he had Âno doubtÂŽ that a woman would someday coach an NBA team. ÂI think just like weÂve seen enormous change in our society, just in the last decade, I think thatÂs another ceiling, another barrier that will be broken,ÂŽ Silver said at the time. He credited women such as Hammon and players willing to follow them for his belief. But Popovich and other coaches say the credit goes to Silver for making diversity and inclusion such important themes in the NBA. ÂI think our league is probably the most diverse league, whether itÂs nationality, race, gender, whatever it is,ÂŽ Casey said. ÂI know we have issues as far as things are going on just like corporations in the world, but it starts with AdamÂs outlook. He really promotes that from a leadership standpoint of diversity, inclusion, the whole nine yards, but it starts with him.ÂŽCOACHESFROM PAGE 1Bowl or two at that position. Marpet didnÂt play poorly in his Â“rst year at that position. But when the Bucs saw an opportunity to improve the overall blocking by adding Jensen, Marpet agreed to be on the move again at left guard. ÂIf it helps our team, IÂm all for it,ÂŽ Marpet said at the time. ÂAnd I think it helps our team.ÂŽ Having never missed a start in 52 games, Smith is also in position for a contract extension and will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of 2018. The Bucs also have met with Drew Rosenhaus, the agent for middle linebacker Kwon Alexander, who is also in line for a new deal. Email Jacob Hoag at Jhoag@sun-herald.com and follow him on Twitter @ByJacobHoag.MARPETFROM PAGE 1thrilled and incredibly humbled,ÂÂ Cash told the Times this morning. ÂI donÂt know if surprised is the right word, or Â”attered that they were willing to give me that long of a deal. ÂThis shows the longterm commitment from the Rays in wanting to see this through and continue to get the organization back to where it was in (the playoff years of) 2008, 2010, 2011, 2013.ÂÂ In the release from the team, principal owner Stuart Sternberg said: ÂKevinÂs abilities, leadership and character have exceeded our lofty expectations. I look forward to having him and his family a part of our organization for the years ahead.ÂŽ Also, GM Erik Neander said: ÂWe couldnÂt be happier with the impact that Kevin has made on our organization, an impact that extends well beyond our major league club. WeÂre thankful for this stability and the many advantages that it provides, especially the opportunity to continue learning and improving together.ÂŽ Cash impressively led the Rays to 90 wins this season, dealing with a winter/spring purge of veterans from the roster, injuries to several key pitchers, introduction and implementation of the unorthodox opener pitching strategy, additional July trades and transitioning to a core of young players. Cash received considerable praise around the game for his work, and is expected to Â“nish in the top three in the American League Manager of the Year voting. Players lauded his strong communication skills and how he created a relaxed environment for them. ÂWhat our guy has done has been as difÂ“cult a job thatÂs been asked of a manager and then delivering. Âƒ (and) been incredibly successful,ÂÂ Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg said in September. ÂHeÂs found a way through a lot of turmoil, a lot of change, and has been just a gem.ÂÂ Cash was hired with no previous managing experience (and only two years as a coach) after the October 2014 departure of Joe Maddon, and has compiled a 318-330 record. In each of the last two seasons, the Rays had the most wins of an AL team that didnÂt make the playoffs. Cash goes into 2019 as the most senior AL East manager, matching HoustonÂs A.J. Hinch for fourth most tenured in the AL, and Hinch and Maddon (now with the Cubs) for sixth in the majors. If Cash stays through 2024 he will be longest serving manager in Rays history, surpassing MaddonÂs nine years. Cash said he got the sense the Rays were thinking long term last off-season when they made several coaching changes to assemble a staff he felt was best suited to the situation.

The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7By TOM HAYSASSOCIATED PRESSNEW YORK Â„ The father of a blue-chip college basketball recruit testiÂ“ed Tuesday that an assistant coach at the University of Louisville gave him a secret payment of $1,300 as part of a deal to get the son to sign with the school. At a criminal trial about corruption in big-time basketball, Brian Bowen Sr. described meeting assistant Kenny Johnson two separate times in 2017 to try to collect cash in violation of school and NCAA rules. Bowen testiÂ“ed that the Â“rst time, Johnson was ÂshockedÂŽ and ÂÂ”abbergastedÂŽ when he told him that defendant Christian Dawkins had promised that the coach would help the father with paying rent. The next time, he said, Johnson handed over $1,300 Â„ reluctantly. ÂHe made it clear that this was a one-time deal for him,ÂŽ Bowen said in federal court in Manhattan. ÂHe said Louisville didnÂt pay basketball players.ÂŽ There was no immediate response Tuesday to a message seeking comment from a lawyer for Johnson, who was never accused of a crime. The testimony about the recruitment of Brian Bowen Jr. came in a case that prompted Louisville to Â“re both Johnson and its legendary coach, Rick Pitino. Johnson is now an assistant at La Salle. Dawkins, former amateur coach Merl Code and former Adidas executive James Gatto, have pleaded not guilty to charges they sought to use under-the-table payments of up to $100,000 from Adidas in exchange for commitments from top prospects to major programs seen as a path to the pros. Their lawyers havenÂt disputed that payments were offered, but they argue that the schools never suffered any harm. Brian Bowen Sr. took the witness stand in federal court in Manhattan as part of an agreement with the government that will spare him from prosecution. On Tuesday, he testiÂ“ed that he tried to keep quiet about the Âmoney schemeÂŽ that he knew broke the rules, even going as far as keeping his son in the dark about it. ÂI didnÂt want him to get involved in something that was wrong. ... And I deÂ“nitely didnÂt want my son to lose his eligibility,ÂŽ he said. The former police ofÂ“cer testiÂ“ed that when Â“rst confronted by the FBI, he lied to agents by denying he knew about the scheme. He said he later decided he had no choice but to cooperate. Once the scandal broke, Louisville withdrew Brian BowenÂs scholarship before he ever played a game. HeÂs currently playing professionally in Australia.Basketball playerÂs father: Louisville assistant gave cash AP PHOTOBrian Bowen Sr. arrives at federal court, Thursday, Oct. 4, 2018, in New York. When Brian Bowen Jr., one of AmericaÂs brightest high school basketball stars, announced in June 2017 that he would attend the University of Louisville, a school that had not been on anyoneÂs radar as his possible destination, sportswriters called it a coup that Âcame out of nowhere.ÂŽ In a trial that began Monday, federal prosecutors will argue that the signing wasnÂt luck at all but the result of a payo to BowenÂs father. NCAASTOCKTON, Calif. (AP) Â„ Alex Spanos, the son of Greek immigrants who used a self-made fortune from construction and real estate to buy the Chargers in 1984, died Tuesday. He was 95. The Chargers announced SpanosÂ death. Faye Spanos, his wife, died in August at 92. After building a nationwide construction empire based in Stockton, his Northern California hometown, Spanos realized a lifelong dream of owning an NFL franchise when he bought controlling interest in the San Diego Chargers from Gene Klein in 1984 for about $50 million. He eventually bought all but 3 percent of the team. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell hailed Spanos as Âan American success story, driven by a tireless work ethic inspired by his humble beginnings.ÂŽ ÂAlex became one of the countryÂs most successful businessmen, but he never forgot his roots and the call to help others,ÂŽ Goodell added in a statement. ÂAlong with Faye, his beloved wife of nearly 70 years, AlexÂs philanthropic and civic contributions touched many lives throughout California and around the country. He was a marvelous friend and partner whose impact on the NFL will never be forgotten. We all beneÂ“ted from AlexÂs compassion, character and zest for football and life.ÂŽ Spanos hadnÂt been in charge of day-to-day management of the Chargers since 1994, when he turned over the responsibilities to Dean Spanos, his oldest son. Dean Spanos decided to move the Chargers from San Diego to Los Angeles last year. The team announced in 2008 that Alex Spanos was suffering from dementia, and he eventually stopped attending games. ÂLaura and I send our condolences to the Spanos family on the death of their beloved patriarch, Alex Spanos,ÂŽ former President George W. Bush said in a statement. ÂAlex was one of a kind. ... He was a wonderful citizen and friend, and the Bush family will miss him.ÂŽ Born in Stockton on Sept. 28, 1923, Spanos took an unlikely road to NFL ownership. After working in his fatherÂs bakery and serving in the Air Force during World War II, Spanos borrowed $800 from a banker to buy a truck from which he sold sandwiches to migrant farm workers in the San Joaquin Valley. He began investing in real estate and started a construction company that mostly built apartment buildings, eventually expanding its footprint across the Sunbelt and Midwest. Spanos and his wife were generous philanthropists, giving to many causes related to hospitals, universities and youth programs. He gave extensively to the University of the PaciÂ“c, his alma mater in Stockton, where the Alex G. Spanos Center houses the TigersÂ basketball and volleyball teams. He was an avid golfer and counted among his friends Bob Hope, Gerald Ford and many prominent politicians. Hope sometimes attended Chargers home games, sitting in SpanosÂ box. ÂAlex Spanos lived the American Dream,ÂŽ former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said on Twitter. ÂHis incredible story should inspire each and every one of us. As a son of immigrants, he rose from working in his fatherÂs bakery to become a titan of real estate and business. But more importantly, he used his money and platform to give back to the world. He was a dear friend and IÂll miss him dearly.ÂŽ During his third season of Chargers ownership, Spanos Â“red legendary coach Don Coryell after the Chargers started 1-7 in 1986. It took nine seasons for the Chargers to make their Â“rst playoff appearance under SpanosÂ ownership, in 1992. After then-general manager Bobby Beathard nearly resigned following the 1993 season due to a feud over signing bonuses for free agents, Alex Spanos put Dean in charge of day-to-day operations of the team. With Beathard remaining, the Chargers made their only Super Bowl appearance, a 49-26 loss to San Francisco in January 1995. It was Alex Spanos who Â“rst raised the topic of a new stadium in 2000, just three years after the city expanded Qualcomm by 10,000 seats for the Chargers, touting it as being Super Bowl-quality. The stadium hosted Super Bowls in 1998 and 2003, but the city fell behind on maintenance and it fell out of the Super Bowl rotation. Alex Spanos wasnÂt held in warm regard by many San Diego fans and was booed during a halftime ceremony to retire Hall of Famer Dan FoutsÂ No. 14 in 1988. After that, Alex Spanos didnÂt participate in similar ceremonies. The Chargers last year left San Diego, their home of 56 years, and moved north after years of fruitless attempts to secure funding for a new arena to replace aging Qualcomm Stadium. The Chargers are currently in the midst of their second of three seasons playing at StubHub Center in suburban Carson, but they will share a multibillion dollar stadium complex in Inglewood with the Los Angeles Rams upon its completion in 2020. Spanos is survived by four children, 15 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.Alex Spanos, Chargers owner and businessman, dies at 95 AP PHOTOThis is a 1986 Â“le photo showing Alex Spanos.

NFL: Alex SpanosBy JIMMY GOLENAP SPORTS WRITERThree-time Olympic gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings, already the most decorated beach volleyball player in history, will pair with defensive star Brooke Sweat in an attempt to make it to the Summer Games for a sixth time. The decision kicks off a two-year qualiÂ“cation process that would send Walsh Jennings to Tokyo in 2020 a month before she turns 42. Sweat, eight years younger, is a four-time AVP defensive player of the year who competed in Rio de Janeiro in her only Olympics. ÂI was so excited that Brooke wanted to play,ÂŽ Walsh Jennings said in an interview with The Associated Press. ÂSheÂs literally a Jedi on defense. You can tell Brooke was born to play this game. SheÂs elevated every single partnership sheÂs ever had.ÂŽ A Â“ve-time Olympian Â„ she also went to Sydney on the U.S. indoor volleyball team Â„ Walsh Jennings won three gold medals with Misty May-Treanor, who retired after the 2012 Games. Walsh Jennings paired with London silver medalist April Ross in 2016 and earned bronze, but the pair split when Walsh Jennings left the AVP over philosophical differences and formed her own tour, called p1440. The new partners will compete together for the Â“rst time Oct. 18-21 at the p1440 event in Las Vegas. ÂIÂm so excited to Â“nally be on the same side of the net as Kerri,ÂŽ Sweat told the AP. ÂIÂm excited to play defense behind that block. SheÂs the best blocker, and it makes my job on defense way easier.ÂŽ Beach volleyball partners can take years to learn each otherÂs strengths and weaknesses, along with the quirks that emerge while traveling on a world tour that bounces among Europe, Asia and North and South America. Walsh Jennings, nicknamed ÂSix Feet of Sunshine,ÂŽ is a ruthless competitor, a relentlessly optimistic chatterbox, a Stanford graduate and now a budding mogul who formed her own tour rather than give up on her vision to grow the sport. Sweat grew up in Fort Myers, Florida, and stayed home to attend Florida Gulf Coast University rather than make the usual pilgrimage to the beach volleyball hub in Southern California. ÂI probably will do most of the talking,ÂŽ Walsh Jennings said with a laugh. ÂSheÂs a really grounded, really good human being. If you have a problem with Brooke, you are just not a good human being.ÂŽ Sweat, who pronounced herself recovered from May rotator cuff surgery, attended the San Jose p1440 event last month as a spectator. The two practiced together last week for the Â“rst time. ÂIt just conÂ“rmed what IÂve always thought about Kerri: She just raises the level of hard work and professionalism,ÂŽ Sweat said. ÂI always want to show up for practices wanting to be the hardest worker on the court, and I think Kerri gives me a run for my money.ÂŽ Two-person teams qualify for the Olympics by earning points on the FIVB world tour over a two-year period that began in the spring. The two are starting at zero and will have to work their way up into the top two dozen Â„ and be one of the top two U.S. teams Â„ to make it to Tokyo. ÂI have no points on the qualiÂ“cation,ÂŽ Walsh Jennings said. ÂItÂs a new situation for me, which I donÂt like.ÂŽ SweatÂs Olympic experience will be an advantage, Walsh Jennings said. Sweat, paired with Lauren Fendrick, arrived in Rio as the No. 13 seed of 24 teams. They were eliminated after going winless in pool play and Â“nished tied for last. ÂRio was devastating, but now IÂm in a place where I can look back and learn from everything,ÂŽ Sweat said. ÂMostly, IÂm learning from the journey to Rio, not being so stressed out about everything.ÂŽ OLYMPICS: VolleyballWalsh Jennings pairs with Brooke Sweat for 2020 Tokyo try AP PHOTOThree-time beach Olympic volleyball gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings has a new partner as she tries to qualify for the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo.

Coach Mike Sullivan said Murray suffered the concussion during practice Monday and reported potential symptoms to the training staff immediately afterward. Sullivan did not offer specifics on the nature of the contact that led to the injury. This is the third time in his NHL career the 24-year-old Murray has been diagnosed with a concussion. He suffered one in practice last February and missed nearly a month. He also suffered a concussion late in the 2015-16 season when he collided with PhiladelphiaÂs Brayden Schenn. Sullivan said the team is focusing on MurrayÂs health and not the number of concussions he has suffered. ÂItÂs really hard to make any sort of, to draw any conclusions with this stuff because I think everybody is different,ÂŽ Sullivan said. ÂThatÂs been my experience in dealing with concussions over the years. The nature of these is different. Sometimes players bounce back extremely quick and others tend to linger and itÂs hard to predict.ÂŽ Murray, who won a pair of Stanley Cups with the Penguins in 2016 and 2017, struggled during the opening week of the season. He allowed six goals in an overtime victory over Washington and then let in five in a loss to Montreal. Sullivan was quick to spread around the blame for PittsburghÂs sluggish start, pointing to a group that played sloppy away from the puck. ÂWeÂve got to be a more difficult team to play against,ÂŽ Sullivan said. Casey DeSmith will get the first chance at replacing Murray. The Penguins also recalled Tristan Jarry from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League.
