About 285 of the townÂs 1,000 people deÂ“ed mandatory evacuation orders, the Associated Press reported. ItÂs unknown how many got out. When Hurricane Irma hit Highlands County, local residents evacuated, but also had shelters. Those shelters have come under criticism by at least one resident who stayed in one and found conditions unbearable.ConcernsMark Zembower, twoyear resident of Sebring, spoke with the Highlands News-Sun and wrote a column on the matter, published Sept. 16 this year, in which he called What if you had to shelter?

By KIM LEATHERMAN STAFF WRITERBARTOW Â„ Former Highlands County resident Audra Rei Watson Pender, 39, of Bartow, was arrested on Oct. 9 because she failed to get medical attention for her 14 year-old daughter Rhianon Quinn after she ingested her motherÂs methamphetamine on Feb. 20, according to Bartow Police Department release. Hours later, Quinn was pronounced dead of methamphetamine intoxication on Feb. 21. Pender was charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child and tampering with evidence. Matthew Wayne Christian, 20, of Bartow, admitted to the Bartow ofÂ“cers that he was in a romantic relationship with the minor victim. Bartow Police Department said in a press release that Christian was charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child, possession of child pornography and transmitting material harmful to minors in the form of nude pictures. According to the press release, the BPD was called to PenderÂs home at 1481 Steward Street in Bartow at approximately 11:10 p.m on Feb. 20. They arrived to Â“nd the teenager unresponsive. Quinn was taken to Bartow Regional Medical Center but was pronounced dead at 12:39 a.m. on Feb. 21. The death was suspicious and the detectives interviewed the mother and Christian. Christian told the ofÂ“cers that earlier in the day, Quinn took methamphetamine she had found in a drawer in her motherÂs bedroom. The report states Quinn contacted her mother, who was at work, to tell her what she took and what she was feeling. Pender informed her daughter she was having symptoms of an overdose. An hour later, Pender arrived at the home and found Quinn Âin an extremely agitated state, displaying signs of a narcotics overdose,ÂŽ the release said. Despite QuinnÂs distress, neither Pender or Christian sought professional medical attention. The two suspects did try to put Quinn in a cold bath to Âalleviate symptoms.ÂŽ The arrest report states Christian asked Pender about a dozen times to call for help. ÂI canÂt; I have drugs in the house,ÂŽ Pender said according to the arrest report. Pender left Christian to deal with Quinn in the tub and stated, ÂIÂve got to hide this.ÂŽ She left with a Walmart bag Christian thought was full of narcotics and eventually came back without it. Pender told Christian if he contacted the authorities about what really happened, she would tell the police that he was having a sexual relationship with the minor victim. It was only after removing the narcotics from the home and Â“nding the child unresponsive, did Pender call the authorities. The report shows it was some six hours after Pender was notiÂ“ed by Mother arrested after daughter dies from overdose PENDER CHRISTIAN By MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERSEBRING Â„ Sun Ân Lake Improvement District of Sebring discussed zoning changes and the collection of assessments at the Board of SupervisorÂs meeting on Friday. Sun Ân Lake is considering changing its method of collecting assessments. Currently, Sun Ân Lake bills residents for their assessments. However the district is considering having the Highlands County tax collector bill for assessments. Section 197.3632 of the Florida Statutes allows a local government to enter into a written agreement with the tax collector for the billing and collection of assessments as long as the tax collector is reimbursed for administrative costs, such as personnel, postage, programming and other associated costs, General Manager Tonya Cannady stated. The Spring Lake Improvement District, the City of Sebring and the Town of Lake Placid utilize the Highlands County tax collector for their billing, Cannady stated.Sun Ân Lake discusses zoning, assessment collection MELISSA MAIN/STAFFFrom left, the board of supervisors Â„ Dan Stegall, Mike Gilpin, President Mark Camp, Vice President Joe Branson and Ray Brooks Â„ discussed zoning and the collection of assessments at the Oct. 12 meeting.

By KIM LEATHERMAN STAFF WRITERLAKE PLACID Â„ The Lake Placid Historical Society Depot Museum, or as locals call it, ÂThe DepotÂ, has not been able to open recently because of a lack of volunteers. The museum is at 12 E. Park St. The society is desperately seeking volunteers in order to open the Depot for tourist season which is just around the corner. Volunteer, head cook and bottle washer, Jerry Pendarvis, said the non-proÂ“t organization has been operated and maintained by volunteers since its doors opened in 1984. While there have been shortages of volunteers before, it has never been this bad, he said. ÂWe have lost a lot of good people,ÂŽ Pendarvis said. ÂThere are a lot of people age-out, retire, pass away and move. We have lost a lot of workers and board members too.ÂŽ Pendarvis understands that not everyone can be a volunteer. He had to wait to volunteer until after he retired from the Highlands County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce in 2010. He started in 2011. It is Â“tting that Pendarvis is spending his Golden Years at the train depot. He began his working career there also. He said he worked for $1 per hour at the Atlantic Coast Railroad loading rail cars. He said it wasnÂt much but it was better that the local grocers who paid 30 cents per hour. Of course, now that he is a volunteer, he is paid in smiles and gratitude. ÂYou have to be retired to volunteer,ÂŽ Pendarvis said. ÂItÂs tough for young people because they have to work and have families. Some retirees have grand kids that they want to spend time with or are raising.ÂŽ The job is not too hard and a history degree is not needed. Pendarvis said he and others will teach new volunteers whatever they need to know. In Lake Placid, there may not be anyone better to learn local history from than Pendarvis Local historyLP Train Depot needs volunteers to open KIM LEATHERMAN/STAFFLake Placid Historical Society Depot Museum is searching for volunteers.SHELTER | 7A ARREST | 3A ZONING | 3A DEPOT | 4A ÂWe have lost a lot of good people.

On Monday, Highlands County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce arrested Stephanie L. Ridge, 41, of Indiana. Ridge was charged with second degree petit theft, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and possession of drug equipment. HCSO was dispatched to Walmart in Avon Park in regards to a theft complaint. The suspect reportedly put blank price tag stickers on items in her shopping cart. Ridge did purchase a few items from the store, but she failed to pay for other items in her cart, which totaled $92.76. According to the report, she exited all points of sale without paying for the other items. Ridge was placed under arrest for petit theft. The deputy asked Ridge if she had drugs or weapons in her possessions, and she reportedly denied having either of these items. Ridge was allegedly hesitant when the deputy attempted to take her purse from her. On the way to the jail, the deputy asked her again about drugs or weapons. She reportedly told the deputy that she did not know of any drugs. When Ridge was at the jail, an inventory was taken of her purse, and the following items were reportedly found: Â“ve glass pipes and a plastic bag containing a white, crystal-like substance, which Â“eld tested positive for methamphetamine. The deputy noted that the pipes were the type commonly used for smoking illegal narcotics.Indiana woman charged with theft, illegal drugs RIDGE By KIM LEATHERMAN STAFF WRITERSEBRING Â„ Miguel Valdes Chang was arrested by Sebring Police Department at about 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 4. He was charged with one felony count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. OfÂ“cers were dispatched to 108 Shannon Way following an anonymous call claiming there were members from two families with guns and weapons arguing in between the houses of 108 and 102 Shannon Way. The arrest report says that the arresting ofÂ“cer arrived at the scene to Â“nd another ofÂ“cer had Chang detained. The second ofÂ“cer was able to speak with the victim, Joe Salsa Perez, who said that he and his wife, Carmen Carrion, were returning home from a shopping trip at Walmart when the assault happened. In a sworn statement, Perez told the ofÂ“cer that he and his wife were exiting their car when Chang approached them. Although they claimed they did not know Chang personally, the suspect wanted to speak with them. Perez stated they spoke of a Â“ght that happened between two people (names redacted) at Sebring High School on Oct. 3, but Perez told Chang he didnÂt want to talk to him because he appeared drunk. Chang allegedly pulled a black gun out of his front pocket and Perez ran for his residence and called 911. As he was waiting for Sebring Police Department, Perez saw Chang run into his house at 102 Shannon Way. Perez said he heard ChangÂs family screaming at him, ÂDonÂt do that,ÂŽ the report said. CarrionÂs sworn statement supported her husbandÂs and added she told Chang that he was making the problem worse than it already was. ThatÂs when she said Chang pulled the gun out of his pocket and his family started yelling. She grabbed a minor and ran into her house. The Sebring police ofÂ“cer questioned the minor who said she was playing basketball when the couple returned from Walmart. The minor said she was with the couple by the time Chang confronted them and saw him pull what appeared to be a black gun out of his pants pocket and made a show of pulling back the slide to ÂchamberÂŽ a round into the gun. She ran into the house with Perez and Carrion afterward. The suspectÂs girlfriend, Ariadna Rodriguez, who lives with him, told ofÂ“cers that Chang did not own any guns. She signed a search warrant waiver and let the ofÂ“cers into the home to conduct a search. At least three ofÂ“cers did a search of the home. The search turned up a a black Airsoft gun, Âthat looked like a real semi-automatic handgun,ÂŽ the report stated. The Airsoft gun was found on the Â”oor, behind the headboard in RodriguezÂs bedroom. Rodriguez said she did not know whose gun it was. An Airsoft gun shoots plastic spheres similar to metal ÂBBs.ÂŽ The three victims want to press charges against Chang.Man facing assault charges after using fake gun CHANG By MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERSEBRING Â„ Highlands County has numerous accidents and fender benders daily, but sometimes crashes turn deadly and loved ones need to be notiÂ“ed. Last weekÂs crash on Wednesday in Lake Placid on U.S. 27 resulted in one fatality and two serious injuries. This tragic crash demonstrates the need to update emergency contact information with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, or DHSMV. When serious crashes occur, family members and friends want to be able to rush to a loved oneÂs side and provide assistance, but this is not possible if law enforcement ofÂ“cers donÂt have updated phone numbers and addresses. October is ECI (Emergency Contact Information) Awareness Month for the Florida DHSMV. ÂRegistering emergency contact information is the Â“rst step to providing peace of mind for loved ones,ÂŽ DHSMV Executive Director Terry Rhodes said. ÂFloridians should keep their information updated in the ECI system, so law enforcement can notify contacts immediately.ÂŽ The process takes just a few minutes and can be completed online at Â”hsmv.gov. The website states, ÂThis service will allow you to provide emergency contact information to law enforcement in the event of an emergency. This information may save crucial time if ever it becomes necessary to contact family members, or other loved ones. This service is only available to individuals holding a current Florida Driver License or Florida IdentiÂ“cation Card.ÂŽ Children as young as Â“ve years old can apply for a Florida ID card, and their emergency contact information can be registered in the secure ECI system. When teenagers apply for their licenses, they can also add their emergency contact information. The Highlands County Tax CollectorÂs ofÂ“ce can only update emergency contact information for a new license or ID card, a renewal card or a replacement card. Unless it is for one of these speciÂ“c circumstances, people must update their information online at Â”hsmv.gov. Only law enforcement will have access to this personal information and the contact information will not be used for any other purpose. This emergency contact system was developed in Florida after the death of a young woman, Tiffany Olson. On Dec. 7, 2005, Olson was a passenger on a motorcycle when the motorcycle collided with another vehicle. TiffanyÂs mother, Christine Olson, was not notiÂ“ed of her daughterÂs death for several hours. Christine Olson worked with state Sen. Bill Galvano to include emergency contact information in the D.A.V.I.D. (Driver And Vehicle Information Database) system, a secure database used by most Florida law enforcement agencies. ÂThrough unimaginable tragedy, Christine Olson selÂ”essly worked to create a program that would beneÂ“t all Floridians,ÂŽ Galvano said. ÂI am honored to have helped create the ECI program and proud of the service it has provided families over the past 12 years.ÂŽ ÂTaking two minutes to register or update your ECI can save you hours of worry, fear and not knowing,ÂŽ Christine Olson said. ÂDo it today Â„ your family is counting on you.ÂŽDHSMV urges contact info be updated UPDATE YOUR INFOResidents can update their contact information in less than five minutes by completing the form at flhsmv.gov.

Detectives interviewed Dr. Anid Phelps, who pronounced Quinn dead, who said in a sworn statement that Pender told her a different story than what actually happened. Pender also withheld the fact that Quinn had ingested methamphetamine narcotics. That information would have aided the medical professionals to a diagnosis and treatment. Phelps told detectives that if Quinn had been brought to the hospital just two hours sooner Quinn would still have been alive with specialized treatments. A warrant to search QuinnÂs Facebook messenger and cell phones between the girl and her mother conÂ“rmed the timeline Christian gave police (about six hours from the time she took the narcotics until the time Pender sought help. ChristianÂs cell phone revealed child pornography and nude pictures ARRESTFROM PAGE 1A Cannady told the board of supervisors the Â“rst step was to provide the tax collector and the district with a timeline to implement the uniform method of collection with the tax collector. She requested that the board vote on a resolution to hire Lewis, Longman and Walker, P.A. to assist with legal advice and compliance with Florida statutes. The proposal was to approve the Â“rm at a rate of $315 an hour and for the fee to not exceed $10,000. Supervisor Ray Brooks said, ÂI think Attorney John McClure walked us through this before. Why are we using someone else? If John McClure has done it before, why not use him again?ÂŽ The board of supervisors agreed to get more information on the issue regarding McClure, and the resolution to use the law Â“rm of Lewis, Longman & Walker, P.A. was denied. In 2007, Sun Ân Lake had used the county tax collector for the collection of assessments, and Ray Brooks thought that McClure had been the attorney to help with the process. However, no one at the meeting knew why Sun Ân Lake had stopped using the county to collect assessments. Cannady said Charles Bryan, former tax collector during the time the assessments were collected by the county died, so Cannady was unable to discuss the matter with the person who had been the tax collector. The board of supervisors was open to considering the idea of uniform tax collection by the county tax collector, but they wanted to know if it was possible to use McClure. In addition to discussing the collection of assessments, the board also discussed increasing the minimum square footage on living space for Unit 16. The district proposed increasing the living square footage on single family residential homes on a golf course from 1,000 square feet to 1,600 square feet. Singlefamily homes not on a golf course would only be increased to 1,200 square feet of living space. Multi-family, R3 zoning, was proposed to be increased from 750 square feet for homes not on a golf course to 1,200 square feet. For homes on a golf course, the multi-family minimum square footage was proposed to be increased from 750 square feet to 1,600 square feet. Ray Brooks felt that the increase in square footage was not enough. He felt that it was best to seek a larger minimum requirement. The district had met with the county attorney to discuss the issue, and County Commissioner Ron Handler from District 3 attended the meeting. Handler told the board of supervisors, ÂWe are here to do whatever you want to do. ItÂs your subdivision.ÂŽ His main concern was just getting lots back on the tax roll. Although Handley wanted to support the district in their desire to increase the minimum square footage on the living area, he did tell the district that larger homes were more difÂ“cult to sell. He also told the supervisors that if a home had 1,200 square feet of living space, then the overall house would be even larger. A two-car garage was usually around 400 square feet and a back porch was approximately 100 square feet, so the total area under roof would be larger. The board took a consensus on the matter, and all the supervisors voted yes, except for Brooks. Based on the boardÂs consensus, the district will move forward with the zoning application process. During public comment, resident Larry Bertetto voiced his concerns. He said, ÂI am a little concerned about the restaurant not making money. I donÂt see many cars parked there after 7 p.m.ÂŽ Bertetto questioned why the board should spend $900,000 on a restaurant that doesnÂt make money. He felt that any business should operate to make money. ÂSomebody needs to work to get people in there,ÂŽ he said.ZONINGFROM PAGE 1ASEBRING Â„ The Highlands County NAACP branch will host its annual Freedom Fund Dinner at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20, at Sebring Elks Lodge, 2618 Kenilworth Blvd. in Sebring.

He has lived in Lake Placid his entire life except for the four years he served in Vietnam. ÂWe would like volunteers to be members of the Historical Society,ÂŽ he said. ÂItÂs usually people we know. ItÂs not that elaborate. We have someone in the front to greet people and then another volunteer to show guests around. Someone collects a $2 donation instead of admission. We have two shifts from 10 a.m.12:30 a.m. and from 12:30 p.m.3 p.m. We will be open Wednesday, Thursday, Fridays and special events, such as the Caladium Festival.ÂŽ The society would like people who can greet and give tours but also be able to do some handiwork or maintenance. Pendarvis said simple repairs can become costly if a handyman has to be called. ÂA house doesnÂt take care of itself,ÂŽ Pendarvis said. ÂYou have to maintain it. DonÂt worry, we wouldnÂt ask any 90 year-old volunteers to get on the roof.ÂŽ Volunteering at the Depot Museum offers a chance to meet new friends, time travel and learn more about the area. Volunteers have several stories that are handed down word of mouth in addition to what is in the history books. Some items of note in the museum are Jacqueline KennedyÂs dress, Melvin Dewey history and a movie, turpentine industry items, a printing press, a 1920s jail and a train caboose. Pendarvis gave a tour that included an old switchboard similar to the type he used in the service. ÂItÂs easy to use,ÂŽ he said as he played with the plugs.

The family fun day is a fundraiser for the 4-H Clovers. The 4-H clubs are known to support the community. This fundraiser helps to support their efforts. The event will have something for everyone, whether itÂs a newborn getting a photo in a wheelbarrow, face painting or buying homemade goodies at the bake sale. Paula Sapp is the 4-H leader for the Lake Placid Clovers. She is also a professional photographer. There will be decorated photo-op booths where kids and grown ups can strike a pose and get a professional picture taken for Christmas card covers. Picking out the perfect pumpkin from the patch can really work up an appetite. Hamburgers and hot dogs Â„ hot off the grill will be available for lunch. Desserts will cool off visitors as snow cones are served up cold and sweet. Popcorn and other goodies will be available. Games and face painting are sure to keep the youngsters entertained. Sapp has overseen the Pumpkin Patch since its inception and knows that it is very important to the Clovers as well as those in need in the community. The Clovers take the money they raise and put it to use in local charities or help families they know need it. ÂEvery year, proÂ“ts made are put into our account to help those in the community as needs arise,ÂŽ Sapp said. ÂI tell the kids these are our ÂDo Good Dollars!ÂÂŽ There are a plethora of pumpkins in the patch; the pumpkins range from tiny to tremendous. The prices are marked according to their size. Children will love climbing on the bales of hay. This year, a special donation jar will be set out to help the family of one of the CloversÂ members who was in a terrible accident recently.PickinÂ pumpkins at annual Pumpkin Patch COURTESY PHOTO/SAPPChristmas cards can be made from the the photo booths and a professional photographer. adno=3620029-1 Death In Them Thar Hills A Murder Mystery DinnerSaturday October 27, 2018 at 6:00 PM (doors open at 5:30 pm)at the Ramon Theater15 East Wall Street in Historic Downtown Frostproof, FL$40 per ticket Â… Includes Dinner 863-635-7222 (Tuesday-Friday 11am-2pm) No Refunds or Exchanges Advance reservations may be purchased online at www.ramontheater.com or at Ramon Theater O ce Â€ 11 E.

OBITUARIES By PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERAVON PARK Â„ Work continues and will continue for some time on improvements to U.S. 27 and State Road 64 in Avon Park. However, based on calls for emergency personnel to wrecks both on the highway and on side streets, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are advised to use caution in and anywhere near the work zone. One hurried motorist ran into the rear left wheel of a school bus Friday morning at an intersection two blocks east of U.S. 27 and two blocks south of Main Street, an area where many motorists have sought shortcuts around the construction congestion. Injuries and deaths from wrecks and pedestrians being hit on the roadways were one major reason for improvements to the area. At a town meeting in May 2015, then Avon Park city manager Julian Deleon said the right turn from U.S. 27 onto SR 64 needed a better turning radius. He said semi-trailers could barely avoid hitting the line of cars waiting to turn left onto U.S. 27. He also echoed the calls of many at the time to have a traffic signal installed at Shop 16 Road, an entrance to the Avon Park Walmart Supercenter. At Palmetto Street, he and then Sheriff Susan Benton had counted 14 crashes in four months. Benton suggested closing Palmetto to cross traffic and making that Walmart entrance right-turn only. FDOT, working with Walmart, now has a signal at Shop 16 Road and has closed Palmetto to cross-traffic, while still allowing left turns from the highway to the entrance and Palmetto. Before those improvements were made, however, a man died trying to cross that junction on foot. Francisco Meza, 45, reportedly crossed from the Walmart side into the path of a northbound motorist at 7 p.m. on a December night, when visibility is low. A witness described the driver as Âflying,ÂŽ but no charges were filed. The witness further stated the light was needed at Shop 16 Road, to slow traffic on that stretch. Accidents have fallen to few, if any, at that spot. With major road construction underway, however, and traffic constrained to two lanes each way in places, accidents have increased for other spots. West Camphor Street, for example, has a median crossing and six fast food restaurants, all with drive-through lanes, just south of it: McDonaldÂs, Taco Bell and WendyÂs on the east side, and Burger King, Checkers and LilÂ Caesars on the west. Brian Rick, public information officer for FDOT, District 1, said motorists need to remember construction will take at least another year. They need to slow down, plan alternate routes and use caution throughout the Avon Park U.S. 27 corridor. Residents would have had their first big look at the $8 million construction project during a public information meeting on May 23 this year. Work started in June and is on schedule, so far, to finish in late 2019. Construction crews are installing concrete pavement at the U.S. 27/ SR 64 intersection itself, with the road beyond the intersection repaved in asphalt, according to FDOT District 1 Communications Manager Zach Burch. Intersection improvements will include a new right turn lanes from eastbound SR to southbound U.S. 27 and from southbound U.S. 27 to SR 64, Burch said. The intersection will have new traffic signals with overhead visual detectors to help manage signal changes, Burch said. The detectors replace standard electromagnetic loops typically installed in the pavement at each approach to the intersection. U.S. 27 will also get concrete pavement southbound from West Pleasant Street to Paulk Street and northbound from Dyal Street for West Hill Street, Burch said, and SR 64 will get concrete pavement from U.S. 27 up to Self Avenue. The contractor will mill and resurface the roadway on U.S. 27 from Townsend Road to Batts Street and on SR 64 from Collier Avenue to Self Avenue. The contractor will also install curbs and gutters, traffic separators, sidewalks, street lights, signs and pavement markers.

Readers may also email Letters to the Editor to email@example.com. A recent editorial from The Ashland Daily Independent (Kentucky): It was a time of mourning in Florence County, South Carolina. It should also be a time of mourning across the nation. We are referring to the shootings of seven ofÂ“cers and deputies in the South Carolina community during a single incident. Reports from CNN and other news outlets indicate a gunman opened Â“re with high-powered weaponry on ofÂ“cers serving a search warrant at an upscale home located about 40 minutes from Myrtle Beach. Veteran Florence Police Department ofÂ“cer Terrence Carraway Â„ who gave his entire career to serving the citizens of his community Â„ was murdered by the gunman. Six other ofÂ“cers were shot. Witnesses said Carraway, in heroic fashion, was killed trying to help his fellow ofÂ“cers as they took gunÂ“re. The search warrant was being served while authorities investigated a report that a man at the home had abused a foster child. To put this in the proper perspective, these ofÂ“cers were attempting to pursue justice on behalf of a victimized child. They were doing righteous work only to be targeted. Carraway gave his life for such a noble purpose. Fox News reports at least 67 law enforcement ofÂ“cers were killed in the line of duty so far in 2018. In 2017, 129 ofÂ“cers were killed. In 2016 a record number of ofÂ“cers, 135, were killed. Just a quick check of recent events shows the magnitude of the lethal violence ofÂ“cers on an almost daily basis. In Mississippi two ofÂ“cers were slain, allegedly by a man repeatedly paroled from prison and with a long criminal history. Last month, an ofÂ“cer was shot to death while responding to a seemingly routine disturbance call at an auto parts store in Sacramento, California. Again, the alleged offender had a felony history involving weaponry. A deputy in Kansas was killed by, you guessed it, a gunman with a lengthy criminal history. In Georgia a police chief was killed by a criminal suspect Â”eeing authorities. In Fort Worth Texas a detective was ambushed and shot in the head while conducting surveillance related to a robbery spree. In California a corrections ofÂ“cer died from injuries suffered in an attack by multiple inmates. Obviously the proliferation of guns among felons and convicts is a huge part of the equation. Another part is the hatred a small segment of our society has towards the rule of law. We believe our society needs to take a much more aggressive approach on keeping guns away from criminals. We also believe America needs to invest in our criminal justice system Â„ speciÂ“cally more prisons Â„ to lock up gun toting repeat offenders for good. If you are violent, robbing people with weapons or breaking into homes, you go to prison for good. There is a pattern with these types of offenders. Robbery, arrest, conviction, released on parole, repeat. We are thankful for the fearless work from law enforcement and believe, in our view, we can do a much better job of appreciating the profound dangers our law enforcement ofÂ“cers face every day. But it is more than just appreciation that is required. Reform of the system is what is truly needed to put the violent, dangerous offenders away.Reform needed to protect law enforcementK-9 deathA sheriffÂs K-9 was murdered Sept. 30 during the performance of his duties and the killer can be given only Â“ve years in prison! He murdered a law ofÂ“cer. K-9 Fang was as much a cop as is the cop on the beat. True, he walked on four feet instead of two, his uniform was a collar and leash, he did not carry handcuffs, radio, phone, Â“rearm or any other equipment police must have but the K-9 was still a law ofÂ“cer and should have been respected as such. That sentence which can be given to FangÂs killer is only a slap on the wrist! He should be given the same punishment as he would get if his victim was a human ofÂ“cer. Think about itÂƒClarice Carter Lake PlacidÂSilly umbrellasÂI would like to comment on an article that Dave Douglas wrote a while ago. He was talking about Â“shing and the bass boats with Âsilly umbrellasÂŽ on them that he had seen on the lake. Mr. Douglas have you ever been diagnosed with skin cancer? Well my husband has and had to have a small part of his ear removed because of it, plus other small parts on his face treated. He is one of the ÂsillyÂŽ boaters on the water. Do you really think he should give up the one thing he really enjoys so as to not look ÂsillyÂŽ to you. Remember Mr. Douglas there are a lot of older people that live down here and enjoy Â“shing with Âsilly umbrellasÂŽ to protect themselves.Patty Gillie SebringThoughts on Kavanaugh debacleItÂs a wrap though RepublicanÂs Kavanaugh Supreme Court charade and the heist of another Supreme Court seat was a wrap before it started. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had already stated that Kavanaugh would be conÂ“rmed. Mitch had reduced Christine FordÂs appearance to a mere formality and dismissed her testimony as meaningless. Here is what America is getting with a new conservative Republican Supreme Court justice. Kavanaugh is a rabid religious anti abortionist. His opening statement gave him away as arrogant and hostile. Kavanaugh disqualiÂ“ed himself for the Supreme Court Â„ indeed for any court Â„ by lying under oath at his hearing. His intemperate personal attacks on members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and his partisan tirades against what he derided as a conspiracy of liberal political enemies show a strikingly injudicious temperament. How would you like to appear before a judge like this? No wonder Trump picked Kavanaugh; he sounds just like Trump.Ron Lowe Nevada City, CAYOUR VIEW These are the best of times, and the worst of times, for being well informed. We have a vast landscape of news sources, yet we tend to view them through a peephole rather than a porthole. If you believe, as I do, that it is a civic responsibility to stay abreast of current events, consider taking a few steps to be a better news consumer. DonÂt be screen-centric. TV, computers and phones bring us most of our news, in forms that are fast and convenient. But if youÂre among those who never, ever, come in contact with a physical newspaper or magazine, Â“x that. More research is needed, but it appears that people absorb content better when read on a printed page, especially with longer articles. Regardless, holding a paper or magazine and scanning each page is distinctly different, and often more enlightening, than scrolling through the same material on a screen. Listen to NPR. I got my start in radio at a time when national hourly newscasts were detailed, reliable and easily available across the dial. They are still produced by several networks, but on many afÂ“liated stations they have been truncated or eliminated. The shining exception is National Public Radio. Driving through Mississippi and Alabama this summer, a regional network of NPR stations proved to be my best connection to news from Washington and the world. NPRÂs hourly newscasts are carried by more than 1,000 stations, where they tend to be part of the conversation, not part of the clutter. Read e-letters. The newsletter business is booming. Almost every news organization in America, large and small, will send you a daily email summarizing its coverage. E-letters are usually free and, while not a substitute for the full story, provide a useful starting point for catching up on the dayÂs news. I recommend one of the original e-letters and still among the best: PoliticoÂs Playbook. Although it has an inside-the-Beltway focus, it is a very readable and nonpartisan digest, delivered for free before 7 a.m. ET. Sample Hannity and Maddow. Depending on your political orientation, you probably watch either Sean Hannity on Fox News Channel or Rachel Maddow on MSNBCbut never both! Try crossing over, at least occasionally. Hannity and Maddow have emerged as the ratings leaders in cable-TVÂs nightly effort to dissect the Trump White House. My friends are aghast when I mention watching both. Still, these two thought leaders help set (in HannityÂs case) or reÂ”ect (more so in MaddowÂs case) the national agenda. Go up front. Even if youÂre not a news junkie you are likely to enjoy perusing the front pages of hundreds of daily newspapers, online, for free. The Newseum in Washington (newseum. org) assembles readable PDFs of front pagesfrom the Daily News-Miner in Fairbanks, Alaska, to the St. Augustine Record in Florida. If itÂs true that Âall politics is local,ÂŽ it can be said that all news is too. YouÂll be surprised at how dramatically the mood of the nation is reÂ”ected on these daily fronts. Go long. Too often we rely on summaries of summaries (indeed, the e-letters cited above are part of that). Stretch your mind and your insight by balancing news digests with long-form articles. Some of the best reporting these days is being done by The New Yorker, The Atlantic and The New York Times Magazine, among others that invest heavily in hiring top writers and giving them the time and space to really drill down. Matriculate. Every so often try reading a college newspaper. Hundreds of student publications are produced on campuses around the country, and while some are read by local residents, most are completely invisible to the general public. A useful list of the top 50 college newspapers, with links, can be found at collegechoice. net. Number 50 is The Bucknellian at Bucknell University in Pennsylvania; number one is the Yale Daily News in Connecticut. You probably have little interest in, say, food complaints at the dining hall, but when, for example, young Yale journalists assess a Supreme Court nominee, itÂs intriguing reading. Talk about it. Nowadays we are so set in our opinions that weÂre afraid to discuss current events with colleagues, friends and family. If theyÂre in another camp, or have a differing view, the risk of broaching a subject seems greater than any possible reward. Yet, this very type of discourse is central to the evolution of our own thinking. IÂve found that creating a small email circle is a useful way to bounce thoughts off people I know, without the peril of raised tempers or overly hurt feelings. If youÂre brave enough to talk about news at the ofÂ“ce or dinner table, my advice is to listen more and pontiÂ“cate less. This is, after all, the age of wisdom, and the age of foolishness. We can each do more to promote the former. Peter Funt is a writer and speaker. His book, ÂCautiously Optimistic,ÂŽ is available at Amazon. com and CandidCamera. com. 2018 Peter Funt.

www.highlandsnewssun.com October 14, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A7local emergency management Âincompetent.ÂŽ He said he saw old people at the Highlands News-Sun Center Â„ a local wind-compliant shelter at the Highlands County Fairgrounds Â„ sitting on the Â”oor and crying without cots or blankets. In his column, Zembower said a source told him that in 2004, during Hurricane Charley, evacuees from Miami sheltered at the Sebring Fairgrounds without cots or blankets on Âfreezing concrete.ÂŽ ÂNaturally, (Emergency Management) learned from this Â“asco and 13 years later had cots and blankets in store in preparation for Hurricane Irma, right?ÂŽ he writes. There were none, he said. Over 60, he joined more than 400 others on Âunforgiving and freezing concreteÂŽ because Âfor some idiotic reason the (air conditioning) couldnÂt be turned down.ÂŽ ÂI watched an elderly man from Avon Park attempt to console his post-stroke ridden wife who was lying in agony on the freezing Â”oor crying her eyes out with only a thin towel partially covering her,ÂŽ Zembower wrote. ÂIt was among the most saddest things IÂve ever witnessed, as I tried, in vain, to acquire a cot of even a blanket for her from the staff running the shelter.ÂŽ He stayed at the shelter a week, while his home was Â”ooded, and only got a cot after Â“ve days from the American Red Cross, he said, after its volunteers arrived to take over the shelter. He alleges the volunteers told him they hadnÂt seen a Âless prepared and apatheticÂŽ community shelter. He also states, despite hot showers being available on the other side of the convention center, it took two weeks for the Red Cross to arrange a cold shower across the street at Sebring High School. When asked if he had had a chance to address these matters with Highlands County Emergency Management, Zembower said he hadnÂt. ÂI was going to take this approach,ÂŽ he said, referring to the column. ÂIf this didnÂt work, I was going to take other means.ÂŽAnswersEmergency Management Manager LaTosha ÂToshÂŽ Reiss said the county hasnÂt invested in cots and blankets since the 2004 hurricane season because all the needed cots and blankets, per shelter, would have to be stored in a climate-controlled building between storms to prevent dry rot. There are liability issues if someone trips on one, she added, and the county canÂt afford insurance against that. She did not note that it had been 12-13 years since the county last saw a storm big enough to warrant opening multiple shelters. Before Charley, the previous major storm in Highlands was Hurricane Donna, in 1960. When needed, she said, the three local Tier I hurricane wind-compliant shelters for the general public are the Avon Park Recreation Center, Highlands News-Sun Center and Lake Placid High School commons Â„ not the gym. The Bert J. Harris Jr. Agricultural (Agri-Civic) Center serves as a special needs shelter for people whose health depends on electricity, such as those using oxygen concentrators. The Health Department was a special needs shelter, at Â“rst, for Charley, but the roof failed and residents had to move to the AgriCivic Center. Reiss said thereÂs a move to make it a special needs shelter again, but the building still needs a few more modiÂ“cations. The county has four Tier II shelters Â„ refuge shelters Â„ for after a storm or to house people displaced by Â”ood. Another eight Tier III shelters can house people during a hazardous materials incident, wildÂ“re or cold weather. One challenge for disaster recovery, Reiss said, is that most Tier II and Tier III shelters are schools. ÂThe faster we cane get kids back to school, the faster we can get back to normality,ÂŽ Reiss said. OfÂ“cials try to relocate evacuees to bigger shelters as soon as possible. Plus, each smaller shelter needs a staff of shelter workers with emergency personnel and nurses, the same as a big shelter, but for 50 spaces, not 500-1,000. She said the county shut one shelter down shortly after Irma and moved shelter residents to a bigger space, because it had just 20 people. Eventually, everyone was at the Fairgrounds convention center, she said.PreparednessThe American Red Cross and local emergency managers advise residents to prepare a kit of supplies to evacuate to a shelter or other place out of harmÂs way. An emergency blanket is one of the items on the list, along with: Water, one gallon per person per day, with a three-day supply for evacuees. Non-perishable, easyto-prepare food, again with a three-day supply. A Â”ashlight, a battery-powered or handcrank radio and extra batteries. A Â“rst aid kit and seven-day supply of personal/prescription medications. A multi-purpose tool. Sanitation and personal hygiene items. Copies of personal documents, sealed in Ziploc bags against getting wet. A cell phone with chargers. Family and emergency contact information. Extra cash. Map(s) of the area. The Red Cross suggests additional items for families and people with medical issues. A shelter can only provide 20 square feet per person, Reiss said: 3.5 feet by 7.5 feet, enough for a twin-size blow up mattress and bag of supplies. ÂItÂs not ideal, but it is a safe place for people to be,ÂŽ Reiss said. Families can combine their space, and if the shelter is not at capacity, shelter managers might be able to give leeway. However, Reiss has learned that in the Panhandle right now, space is tight. People sometimes donÂt to leave home because there are no pet-friendly shelters and regular shelters do not allow pets, only service animals. The county is working to set up a pet-friendly shelter, Reiss said. She reminds residents such a shelter requires animals to stay in kennels/carriers and have vaccinations. ÂSome people think that pet friendly shelters are one big dog park,ÂŽ Reiss said. Reiss recommends people Â“nd out early what motels accept pets and which local veterinarians board pets in a storm.

The 2018 hurricane season has been less active than last year, but spawned perhaps the worst storm to hit Florida in Hurricane Michael.

By JENNA FRYERASSOCIATED PRESSTALLADEGA, Ala. Â„ Times were already changing long before Jimmie Johnson strolled through a Las Vegas casino unnoticed, full Â“resuit and all. It was the start of NASCARÂs playoffs and the seven-time champion, wearing a Â”ame-retardant billboard, was surprised that he failed to garner even a quizzical stare. Johnson had already lost LoweÂs, the only sponsor heÂs had at NASCARÂs top level. Now he was just another face in the crowd even though the start of the playoffs were just days away and the most decorated driver of his generation was there to promote. How utterly off-kilter for Johnson. But losing LoweÂs, Â”oundering in a long losing streak during a dismal time at Hendrick Motorsports, going unnoticed in a hotel lobby, none of that compared to what was still to come in this bizarre season for ÂSeven Time.ÂŽ The biggest stunner came this week when team owner Rick Hendrick, after 17 years of babysitting the delicate relationship between Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus, pulled the plug on the longest pairing in NASCAR. Knaus built the No. 48 team around Johnson from scratch. He was atop the pit box for the record-tying seven titles and 81 of JohnsonÂs 83 career Cup victories. The two have been together since bachelorhood, through marriage and now children for both. They were fueled by the chase for eight, the elusive number neither The King of The Intimidator could reach. Their farewell tour begins today at Talladega Talladega starts last run for dynamic duoJohnson and Knaus a special team in NASCAR history ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTO/BY CHUCK BURTON Crew chief Chad Knaus, left, talks with driver Jimmie Johnson.

By DAVE DOUGLASSHIGHLANDS BASS ANGLERThe Freshwater Fishing Forecast for the third week of October gives anglers the arrival of the Â“rst quarter moon phase and a weak rainy season weather forecast, meaning four out of seven days this week will be sunny with no chance of a daily rain storm. All Â“shing factors considered, anglers will have the least help from the moon during this week due to the moon arriving at its furthest orbit point from earth on Wednesday Â„ lunar apogee Â„ and the Â“rst quarter phase arriving the day before. Therefore Â“sh will still be cueing off of the Âhigh dissolved oxygen period of the dayÂ which is from 4-8 p.m. ÂDreaming of water temperatures in the lower 80-degree range on the surfaceÂƒand a giant bass engulÂ“ng a red-shad colored lizard sliding off of a lily pad leaf into the waterÂŽ. Even though water temperatures are still too high for bass and pan Â“sh to digest food normally because of low oxygen rates, the good news is, there will be an Âideal Â“shing windÂ all this week. And winds will remain out of the east until next weekend when it switches out of the south. Fish feeding patterns form when weather remains consistent over a period of several days, and today through Friday weÂll experience exactly that scenario. Add the ideal wind speeds of six to eight miles per hour and the Â“fty-Â“fty percentage sun-to-cloud ratio, and anglers should do better than average published Â“shing-help charts predictionsÂ„all unanimous predicting a 2-3 rating all this week. Low dissolved-oxygen stress on bass will continue until temperatures decline below 83 degrees. Bass digestion speeds reach the fastest annual rate when water temperatures are in the 72-82 degree range on the water surface. Bass feed most aggressively annually during the ideal temperature months; traditionally November through December (or until water temp averages drop out of the seventy degree range) and from April through June. Best Fishing Days: Looking at the weather forecast Tuesday through Thursday, there is predicted to an even mix of clouds and sunshine with Tuesday being predominately sunny. Therefore midday and sunset hours on those days will be most productive.

The crucial win improved Lake Placid to 4-4 overall and gave the Green Dragons important points that are calculated to see who makes the state playoffs at the end of the season. The victory moved Lake Placid from seventh to sixth and puts the Dragons in a great position. ÂI think we came out ready to play and I was excited to see that,ÂŽ said first-year Lake Placid Coach Andy Judah. ÂI wasnÂt excited about ThursdayÂs practice and it made me a little nervous. The offense made the corrections and having our offensive line back helped tremendously. We got a big victory on the road against a 5-2 LaBelle team is incredible. Hats off to the defense. They played well and made a couple adjustments.ÂŽ Lake Placid struck first as quarterback Shamar Mitchell connected with wide receiver Erskin Tolliver for a 24-yard touchdown pass to give the Dragons a 6-0 lead with 6:11 left in the first. LaBelle, which dropped to 5-2, answered as Trace Burchard caught a pass for a 55-yard gain.

After a 33-yard quarterback keep by Mitchell, White pushed his way into the Cowboys end zone to give the Dragons a commanding 32-18 lead in the fourth quarter. Lake PlacidÂs defense did an incredible job stopping the Cowboys offense the entire game. LaBelleÂs Hernandez is quick and elusive but was contained this night.

ÂThis was a great win and I think we are a good team but we just have to work hard. It feels great to beat LaBelle on their homecoming night. We lost during our homecoming so it feels great to make them lose at theirs. I went hard tonight for my team and had the mindset and confidence to keep going and not give up.ÂŽ LaBelle made it tough on Lake Placid. ÂLabelle made it close there for a while and we knew they would,ÂŽ said Judah. ÂI was really excited that during the fourth quarter we ran it, we told the offensive line to take us home and they did.

That shows our consistency Â… we may not have always had the fastest car, but we played our strategy right, kept it clean and had a great year.ÂŽ And with the drop of the checkered Â”ag, it was BimmerWorld RacingÂs long overdue time to cheer. James Clay alongside Tyler Cooke in the No. 82 BimmerWorld Racing BMW M4 GT4 delivered the carÂs Â“rst overall North American victory by nearly nine seconds after leading the Â“nal 19 laps of the race. The win is a series Â“rst for Clay, and CookeÂs Â“rst since 2013. But there was another signiÂ“cant Â“rst for BimmerWorld at the end of the race Â… the No. 81 BMW 328i of Nick Galante and Devin Jones, with four wins on the season, captured the organizationÂs Â“rst ever Continental Tire Challenge title and the Â“nal championship for the ST class, which also saw its conclusion on Friday. The duo Â“nished third on Friday to MINI JCW and Bodymotion Racing. ÂItÂs a fantastic day,ÂŽ said Team Owner James Clay. ÂBig win in GS. Going into the winter on a day like this is just fantastic. Tyler drove an awesome race, the ST guys drove a fantastic year. The whole season. To capture the championship, this last championship for the ST class, itÂs a special day.ÂŽ ÂIt was an emotional win,ÂŽ said Cooke. ÂLast time I won a pro race my dad was alive and I still remember the phone call after the race. It was deÂ“nitely emotional crossing the start/Â“nish line. We work so hard. Year in, year out weÂve been right there and to Â“nally get that win for BMW, BimmerWorld, James, I canÂt think of a better way to end the season. The last one for Continental, which thatÂs a cool part, and hats off to the ST guys, they drove Â”awless all year. They deserve that championship.ÂŽ ÂChecked off the last championship of the ST class, great to wrap it up here,ÂŽ said Galante. ÂRunning with as many JCW guys, all year been great. They run a great program. They have raced us clean all year. It was really fun. And the guys at Bodymotion really made this season fun. Hats off to Trent Brown on the engineering box who got us through all these races and my sponsor with the Racing to End AlzheimerÂs initiative. ItÂs been a really good year.ÂŽ Five different GS manufacturers took turns atop the classÂ leaderboard, with McLaren and Mercedes-AMG taking the Â“nal two spots on the overall podium. Polesitters Paul Holton and Matt Plumb in the No. 76 Compass Racing McLaren GT4 Â“nished runner-up, while the No. 57 Winward Racing/HTP Motorsport MercedesAMG GT4 of Bryce Ward and Indy Dontje took third, DriverÂs Title The closest driversÂ championship battle in the Continental Tire Challenge entering FridayÂs race was that in the TCR category. Compass RacingÂs Tom Long and Britt Casey, Jr. in the No. 77 Audi RS3 LMS were ready to defend their Â“ve-point margin against teammates Rodrigo Sales and Kuno Wittmer in the No. 74. And it was shaping up to be a tantalizing battle, as the No. 74 had mechanical issues during ThursdayÂs qualifying, which meant the team would have to climb from last to the front of the Â“eld for a shot at the title. However about 40 minutes into the race, the No. 74 machine got away from its driver, Sales, and went into the Turn 6 wall. The car was done for the day and the No. 77 secured the championship by 13 points, 318-305. ÂItÂs an incredible day, being so close to winning the Continental Tire championship before, this is it,ÂŽ said Tom Long, who made his 100th Continental Tire Challenge start at Road Atlanta. ÂItÂs a big day for not only for Britt Casey, Jr. and I, but obviously for Continental and the ST class as itÂs the class I started in. Our Audi RS3 LMS TCR car has just been incredible all season. I canÂt thank Compass Racing enough for the excitement that they brought us this year. I couldnÂt be prouder of the program.ÂŽ The No. 77 went on to Â“nish third behind polesitters Tom OÂGorman and Kenton Koch in the No. 12 eEuroparts.com Racing Audi. This was the second victory for the duo that joined the TCR Â“eld midway through the season and it came on the heels of OÂGormanÂs Â“fth consecutive Motul Pole Award. ÂIt was a special day, especially after Â“ve poles in a row,ÂŽ said OÂGorman. ÂWe came in midseason and to come away with four podiums, two wins on six races is a huge amount of momentum into next year. We would love to be here again. ItÂs just such an honor to be involved with the eEuroparts team. IÂm happy to bring it home.ÂŽ Michael Johnson and Stephen Simpson in the No. 54 JDC-Miller MotorSports Audi RS3 LMS TCR would complete the podium with their second place Â“nish. ManufacturerÂs Title With a three-car effort slated for the MINI JCW Team in 2018, the goal in mind was a manufacturerÂs championship. It would be a Â“rst for the marque in the Continental Tire Challenge since joining the ST ranks in 2015. Finally, that moment came with the end of the 2018 season at Road Atlanta. It was the tightest battle across all categories entering FridayÂs race, as BMW Â… represented by BimmerWorldÂs Nick Galante and Devin Jones Â… led MINI by two points in the standings. Ergo, one position would determine the results. BMW looked to have not only the win, but also the manufacturerÂs title locked up as they led the majority of FridayÂs race. However, the team was forced to pit with under 10 minutes remaining for fuel and gave way to the No. 73 MINI JCW of Mat Pombo and Mike LaMarra who went on to win. The No. 21 Bodymotion Racing Porsche Cayman of Jason Rabe and Max Faulkner took second. It was the third win of the year for the No. 73 pairing and the Â“fth total win for MINI. MINI topped BMW in the manufacturer standings by just three marks, 331-328. ÂI mean I was just kind of cruising,ÂŽ said Pombo. ÂI thought Devin and Nick were pulling, they were managing the gap. I felt like we were going to be really close on fuel, so I was hoping that they would be even closer. I hate winning it that way, but they had a great season so congrats to Nick and Devin on their championship. WeÂve been Â“ghting to bring MINI this championship and (Team Owner) Luis (Perocarpi) and Tonine (McGarvie) and everyone at MINI, we couldnÂt have done this without the support of the manufacturer. My brother (Mark), Derek Jones, my teammate, Mike LaMarra, unreal to win at my home track.

B4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 14, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Superspeedway, and when they part, Johnson still will be tied with Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt Sr. with seven titles. Knaus will be tied with crew chief Dale Inman. If No. 8 ever comes, it will come for one of them, not both. Knaus is moving to the No. 24 team, where he started at Hendrick Motorsports so many years ago building cars for a new guy named Jeff Gordon, to crew chief another fresh-faced young talent in William Byron. Rick Hendrick went to his farm system to pair Johnson with Kevin Meendering, one of those lifelong Hendrick guys who started with the company as a high school part-timer and learned how to be a crew chief. It is the end of an era, indeed. ÂWeÂve lasted longer than the average length of a marriage in the United States. WeÂve worked really hard,ÂŽ Knaus said. So hard they nearly destroyed the relationship on more than one occasion. Johnson and Knaus arenÂt wired the same but have always chased winning. The path each took wasnÂt always orderly and Knaus, so rigid, intense and inÂ”exible, sometimes clashed with JohnsonÂs easygoing demeanor. The louder Knaus yelled, the quieter Johnson became. Hendrick threatened to break them up. Sat them down over milk and cookies because they were acting like children, blaming each other and bickering over their inability to win a championship. They agreed to work as hard on their relationship as they were working on their goals, and it led to title after title and a winning pace not seen in decades. Only now they arenÂt winning anymore, and for a variety of reasons that Johnson and Knaus cannot solely control. Hendrick Motorsports is in a massive rebuild, Chevrolet has lagged behind its competitors this year and JohnsonÂs young teammates donÂt know what they donÂt know so arenÂt in position to take charge of the march out of this mess. ThatÂs how Johnson gets stuck in a 53-race losing streak headed into Sunday. And at some point, Hendrick has no choice but to step in and try something new, anything new, even if it means splitting the greatest combination since Petty and Inman. ÂItÂs not like weÂre trying to kill each other. ThatÂs not where this is,ÂŽ Knaus said. ÂItÂs an opportunity for growth for both of us. In order to be committed in a team-oriented environment for that long, thereÂs a lot of deep digging that you have to get through. ÂAnd weÂve done that, and weÂve put forth the effort and itÂs time right now to do something different. It really is itÂs the right time for the company.ÂŽ So, six more races, thatÂs all these two have got left together, and theyÂd like to make it count. Johnson tried to snap that losing streak two weeks ago on the roval at Charlotte but his attempt at a last-lap pass of Martin Truex Jr. ended with both drivers spinning and Johnson knocked out of the playoffs. But anything goes these Â“nal six weeks because when itÂs over, nothing will be the same. Knaus will be at the No. 24 trying to mold Byron into the next Johnson or Gordon. Johnson will have a new sponsorship and new face leading his team as Hendrick gives Meendering a chance to be the next Knaus. Until then, they have nothing to lose and every reason to try to snap that losing streak and celebrate one last time in victory lane together. ÂWeÂre Â“erce competitors, we both want to win races, we both want to win championships and we acknowledge the fact that weÂve had a hell of a run,ÂŽ Johnson said. ÂItÂs been a long, amazing run of 17 years. Sometimes change brings new opportunity. Change brings excitement, a new breath of fresh air, a spark. ÂWhatever it might be, that opportunity is now here for us. WeÂve been highly committed to each other, this team and our relationship, but itÂs just to the point where we feel like change is the next step and potentially the next step for our next level of greatness as individuals. It just feels like itÂs time.ÂŽTEAMFROM PAGE 1B CHUCK BURTONNASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson, right, speaks to the media as crew chief Chad Knaus, left, listens during a news conference on Thursday. By BRANDON C. WILLIAMSASSOCIATED PRESSAfter Â“ve weeks, fantasy owners of Dalvin Cook and Devonta Freeman are lamenting those draft picks, while those who gambled on Austin Ekeler and Tyler Boyd feel as if their fantasy IQs went up sharply. Week 6 constitutes a make-or-break moment for a host of players who have yet to live up to their preseason projections, along with those labeled as breakouts who are still digging to see the light of the expectations placed among them. START: Jameis Winston, QB, Buccaneers: Making his Â“rst start of the season, Winston gets a plum matchup against a Falcons secondary that has been strafed for 12 touchdown passes and is 28th in fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks. Winston was 16 of 20 for 145 yards and a touchdown after mopping up for Ryan Fitzpatrick in a loss at the Bears. He wonÂt waste time getting the ball downÂ“eld to Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson, so plug him in and watch him make up for lost time. SIT: Jared Goff, QB, Rams: Receivers Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp both remain in concussion protocol and while itÂs possible both will play, the matchup at the Broncos is Â“lled with hurdles. Goff has been just OK on the road, averaging a modest 18 fantasy points in his Â“rst two road games compared to the 33 PPG he has averaged in three games in Los Angeles.

www.highlandsnewssun.com October 14, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B5Facing the Denver pass rush is also an issue, but Mother Nature will be the biggest reason to sit Goff, as the forecast Sunday calls for snow Â”urries and temperatures in the midto upper-20s at kickoff. START: James White, RB, Patriots: Even with Julian Edelman back and Josh Gordon continuing to be added into the Â”ow of the passing game, White remains a great play for the potential Sunday night slugfest against the Chiefs. In the last two games, White has 18 catches for 145 yards and two touchdowns and will maintain that type of production against a Kansas City defense that allows seven catches and 90 yards per game to opposing running backs. In PPR formats, White is a borderline RB1 this week. SIT: Adrian Peterson, RB, Redskins: The injuries (ankle, knee, shoulder) are piling up on Peterson, who had only six yards on four carries in the Monday night loss at New Orleans. The Panthers have the sixth-best run defense in the league and itÂs unlikely the Redskins will give him a full workload. If Peterson is limited, it will be a mild disappointment for those whoÂve used him as a sneaky good pass catcher in PPR formats. START: Tyler Boyd, WR, Bengals: Only the Buccaneers and Saints allow more fantasy points per game to opposing receivers than the Steelers, who can no longer put the bulk of their focus solely on A.J. Green. Boyd has caught nearly 70 percent of his targets and has seven catches of better than 20 yards, making him an excellent WR2 play against a Pittsburgh pass defense that has given up 13 touchdown passes and 21 completions of better than 20 yards. SIT: Amari Cooper, WR, Raiders: HeÂs become too inconsistent, drawing only one target in last weekÂs loss to the Chargers. Whatever the cause of the disconnect between him and quarterback Derek Carr, CooperÂs down-up-downup-down act is already wearing thin with his fantasy owners. The Seahawks secondary is no longer the feared unit it once was, but they are still ninth in the league in passing yards allowed per game and are second with nine interceptions. Maybe Cooper continues his yo-yo trend, but thereÂs little motivation to risk a spot in the lineup for it. START: Chester Rogers, WR, Colts: With T.Y. Hilton doubtful, Rogers again plays the role of top wideout for Indianapolis, who faces a Jets team that is 26th in fantasy points allowed per game to opposing receivers. This should play well for Rogers, who was targeted 11 times in each of the last two games. He has yet to score a touchdown this season yet the high volume of targets from Andrew Luck only increases the chances of him Â“nally visiting the end zone. SIT: Greg Olsen, TE, Panthers: Yes, heÂs slated to play against the Redskins on Sunday. However, there is no indication as to how much heÂll be used. Either way, Olsen will need this game to get back into form. Washington is a modest 17th in fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends, so thereÂs no need to feel that Olsen is missing a must-start opportunity. Olsen owners will be best off using this game as a gauge to how far along he is before becoming a viable fantasy starter once again. START: Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals: After failing to throw multiple touchdown passes for the Â“rst time this year in last weekÂs loss to the Dolphins, Dalton will make up for lost chances against the Steelers, who are 31st in fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks. Dalton is averaging a solid 23 fantasy points per game and will exceed that number facing a defense thatÂs allowing 320.4 passing yards and nearly three touchdown passes per contest. SIT: Dion Lewis, RB, Titans: Since scoring 16 fantasy points in Week 1, Lewis has a combined 15 FP in the last four games. The Titans have been unable to effectively utilize Lewis, who has only 60 rushing yards on 25 attempts over his last three games. DonÂt expect those numbers to suddenly trend upward against a Ravens defense that is seventh in the league in rushing yards allowed and has given up only two rushing touchdowns all season.FANTASYFROM PAGE 4B By BARRY WILNERASSOCIATED PRESSThere can be no better measuring stick for the Chiefs and young quarterback Patrick Mahomes than what they tonight. Beat the Patriots in Foxborough and all that excitement in Kansas City might be validated. Remember, though, that the Chiefs, with Alex Smith, went into Gillette Stadium and won the 2017 kickoff to the season. They went on an up-and-down ride the rest of the way, lost in the wild-card playoff round, while the Patriots straightened out and made the Super Bowl before losing to Philadelphia. Mahomes, of course, has looked immune to any sort of high-stakes pressure in leading the Chiefs (5-0) to the top of the AFC. He embraces this challenge and trying to outdo Tom Brady. ÂIt is going to be a great opportunity,ÂŽ says Mahomes, who has a league-best 14 touchdown passes. ÂHe is one of the greatest quarterbacks, if not the greatest to ever play. I am going against their defense, but as a team we are going to go in and try to compete. They are a good team in the AFC every single year. Just to compete against one of the best teams in the league is going to be an awesome opportunity.ÂŽ How familiar is Mahomes with three-time league MVP Brady, whom he has never met? ÂI deÂ“nitely watched a good amount of him in college (at Texas Tech),ÂŽ he says. ÂCoach (Kliff) Kingsbury actually played with Tom at one point. He liked to show me some things that he did where he was in the pocket, his pocket movements and things like that. I have deÂ“nitely taken some things from him. He does it at such a high level, itÂs something you have to strive to be like.ÂŽ New England (3-2) is striving to be, well, New England. After a 1-2 start, the Patriots appear to have gotten back on their usual winning path. The weekend began with PhiladelphiaÂs 34-13 road victory over the New York Giants. Carson Wentz threw a season-high three touchdown passes for the Eagles (3-3). They beat the Giants (1-5) for the fourth straight time and seventh in eight games. Off this week are Detroit (2-3) and New Orleans (4-1) Pittsburgh (2-2-1) at Cincinnati (4-1) One of the NFLÂs most vicious and yellow-tinted rivalries As in: Â„These teams combined for four penalties for unnecessary roughness, one for unsportsmanlike conduct, one for taunting, one for roughing the passer, and two 15-yard penalties for grabbing a facemask in their previous meeting.

Â„The Bengals are 8-24 vs. the Steelers under coach Marvin Lewis Â„Lewis is 2-15 at Paul Brown Stadium against Pittsburg. Â„ Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is 24-4-1 in his native Ohio, including the postseason. HeÂs 13-2 at Paul Brown Stadium with 23 TDs, 10 interceptions. Los Angeles Chargers (3-2) at Cleveland (2-2-1) When last they met in Cleveland, the Browns won in their 15th game to avoid a perfect season on the wrong side of the ledger. So they lost every game in 2017, including at the Chargers. ÂNot to speak too much of last year, but I could not believe and I did not feel like they were an 0-16 team or 0-14, whatever they were when we played them last year,ÂŽ says Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. ÂIt was a good football team. They just did not Â“ nd ways to win and so many (games) they had opportunities.ÂŽ TheyÂve got two wins already and lead the NFL with 15 takeaways, two more than in the entire 2017 season. Baltimore (3-2) at Tennessee (3-2) Two clubs coming off down weekends: Tennessee was punchless at Buffalo, Baltimore was inept offensively at Cleveland. Both can play D, though, so donÂt expect a lot of end zone activity in Music City. The Ravens are playing a third straight road game, then have four of the next Â“ ve at home. They lead the NFL in scoring defense, allowing 15.4 points per game, with no TDs in a second half. The Titans have allowed seven points in the Â“ rst quarter and lead in red zone defense, allowing three TDs in 13 possessions for a 23.1 percent success rate by opponents. Chicago (3-1) at Miami (3-2) The Bears have won three in a row and come off a bye. They havenÂt earned four straight wins since 2012. With Khalil Mack revitalizing the defense, Chicago ranks No. 1 against the run and second overall. If second-year quarterback Mitch Trubisky truly has found the passing rhythm Â„ his six TD throws in a rout of Tampa Bay tied for second most in an NFL game Â„ the Bears needs to be taken seriously. Miami was taken seriously until it laid eggs at New England and Cincinnati, where it blew a 17-0 lead. The Dolphins rank third worst in yards and Â“ fth worst in points. They have been outgained by 94 yards per game, which ranks third worst. Carolina (3-1) at Washington (2-2) Washington was on the wrong end of the record-setting Brees blitz through the air in New Orleans, and was damaged as much by penalties as inefÂ“ cient defense. The usually precise Alex Smith threw an interception and was generally off-target. Now comes Carolina, which has seven picks, is plus-5 in turnovers, and has nine sacks. The Panthers also have the NFLÂs top rushing offense, in part because quarterback Cam Newton is such a weapon on the ground. Newton is 4-0 with nine TDs and zero picks for a 115.4 passer rating vs. Washington, along with two rushing scores. Washington has lost Â“ ve straight to Carolina. Los Angeles Rams (5-0) at Denver (2-3) While DenverÂs defense has been getting Orange Crushed recently, LAÂs offense has looked unstoppable. Jared Goff leads the league with 1,727 yards passing and ranks second with a 119.7 passer rating. In the past month, Goff is averaging 374 yards per game. Todd Gurley tops the NFL with seven TD runs and ranks second with 645 scrimmage yards. Of concern for the impressive receiving group is that Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp each left last weekÂs win at Seattle with concussions. Denver star LB Von Miller has gone sackless the past three weeks. The Broncos yielded 323 rushing yards to the Jets, so, yes, that has caught GurleyÂs attention. Jacksonville (3-2) at Dallas (2-3) Oddly, Dallas has never won its Â“ rst three home games at Jerry World. With RB Leonard Fournette still hurt, the showpiece matchup with Ezekiel Elliott disappears. Elliott has been the prime weapon for Dallas and is averaging 154 yards from scrimmage per game in the past three. But the passing game is 30th as Dak Prescott struggles without a topnotch receiver. HeÂll face the stingiest defense in the NFL. Seattle (2-3) vs. Oakland (1-4) at London Wonder if the Raiders will have as many fans in Wembley as they did in StubHub Center. They could really use the support as Jon GrudenÂs return season spirals out of control. ÂIÂm going to continue to emphasize the good and do everything I can to Â“ x the things that are bad, because most of the things that are bad, my Â“ ngerprints are all over,ÂŽ Gruden said. Such as a defense, minus the traded Mack of course, that ranks 30th. Oakland has the fewest QB pressures in the league (29), tied for fewest sacks (six), and is tied for third-fewest takeaways (Â“ ve). Seattle makes its Â“ rst regular-season overseas appearance. Worth watching: Â„Pete Carroll seeks his 91st win with the team to pass Mike Holmgren as winningest coach for the franchise. Â„Russell Wilson is 25-6 after a loss, the best record of any quarterback since the merger. Â„Seahawks kicker Sebastian Janikowski spent 18 seasons with the Raiders, holding the franchise record for points (1,799) and games (268). Indianapolis (1-4) at New York Jets (2-3) If any team needed the long layoff from a Thursday nighter, it was the Colts. They went into New England undermanned and then got hammered with more injuries, giving them little chance against the Patriots. Assuming they are somewhat healthier, this is a far better chance for Indy to straighten out its season. Andrew LuckÂs arm looks strong, but who does he have to throw to if T.Y. Hilton isnÂt in the lineup? New York opened up its offense in a win over Denver, letting Sam Darnold occasionally Â” ing the ball downÂ“ eld and it led to some huge plays. The Colts are vulnerable to that. Buffalo (2-3) at Houston (2-3) Each team comes off a tight victory in which the offenses were stagnant, while the defenses and kicking games were decisive. Houston wants things more open when it has the ball, with Deshaun Watson connecting on throws to DeAndre Hopkins. BuffaloÂs solid second-year cornerback TreÂDavious White, will be tested. Apparently fully healthy after two tough years, Texans DE J.J. Watt is tied for the NFL lead with six sacks. Watt had an 80-yard interception return for a score in his previous game against the Bills in Houston, a 23-17 win in 2014. Arizona (1-4) at Minnesota (2-2-1) What could be a mismatch Â„ Arizona has the NFLÂs worst offense and has scored all of 65 points Â„ has one intriguing element. Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald, a likely Hall of Famer, returns to his hometown for the sixth time in his 15-year career, with an average of 87.4 receiving yards and no touchdowns at Minnesota. On the other side, wideout WR Adam Thielen leads the league in receptions (47) and is second in yards (589). HeÂs also Â“ rst in third-down catches (14). Thielen is the third player in NFL history with Â“ ve 100-yard games to start a season, the Â“ rst since 1961.

www.highlandsnewssun.com October 14, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B7period occurs at 5:59 p.m. and the sunset at 6:58 p.m. and will create a feed intensity rating of 3-4 today from 4-8 p.m. This period will remain consistent for the Â“rst half of this week. After last weekÂs clouding conditions and high winds, dissolved oxygen rates in our lakes are dangerously low but by the end of this week, oxygen rates should be back at normal seasonal rates of 5-6 parts per million oxygen. For this reason the morning underfoot period, which today is at 5:34 a.m. will have little positive effects on Â“sh to trigger feeding. However by Thursday through next weekend this lunar event will occur after 9 a.m. with will work with the beginning of oxygen production in our lakeÂs vegetation areas. Minor Fishing Period: Today the moonrise occurs at 12:33 p.m. and solar noon at 1:11 p.m. and will create a feed intensity rating of 2-4 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This period will remain consistent until Wednesday when morning feeders start to cue off of the moon underfoot period during 8-9 a.m., essentially causing the migration period to back up and start earlier. Prime Monthly Periods: October 21-26 full moon, November 4-9 new moon, 20-25 full moon, December 4-9 new moon, 19-24 full moon.

Seasonal Safety Notes: Lightning is a very serious threat during the Florida rainy season. The standard rule: Be no more than 3-4 minutes away from a vehicle or permanent structure. So the time your boat is able to travel from your Â“shing-hole to one of the two safe-place options, should be less than 4 minutes. If you get caught on the lake with no time to get to safety, keep motors Âin the waterÂ and lay down as low as possible andÂƒ.. persuade yourself not be this irresponsible with yourself ever againÂ„been there done that. Istokpoga.info News: The lake level is at 39.20 feet above sea level, which is the maximum level in the seasonal management schedule todayÂ„3-4 inches below the annual high level of 39.50ÂŽ. The minimum level currently is 39.00Â. Today, one of four S68 spillway gates is open 1 foot and Â”owing 200 cubic feet per second to remain on schedule. This seasonal Ârain-buffer scheduleÂ is necessary because the lake Â“lls six times faster than water is able to be released during major rain events.

THE NEWS WIRESTATE Â€ NATIONAL Â€ WORLD Â€ BUSINESS Searches intensify after body is found in MichaelÂs wakeSee page 4, and another Hurricane Michael-related story on page 8 Sunday, October 14, 2018 DPA (TNS)President Donald Trump has promised that Saudi Arabia would face Âsevere punishmentÂŽ if the kingdomÂs leadership was behind the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The writer and Saudi dissident has not been seen since Oct. 2, when entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to deal with paperwork required to marry his Turkish Â“ ancee. World leaders have demanded an explanation from Riyadh after U.S. and Turkish media reports that authorities believe Khashoggi, a legal U.S. resident, was killed in the consulate. Saudi Arabia denies accusations it was behind his disappearance and has claimed that Khashoggi left the building before he went missing. ÂWe are going to get to the bottom of it and there will be severe punishmentÂŽ if Saudi Arabia killed him, Trump told CBS News in an interview released Saturday. Asked if Khashoggi was killed on the order of the Saudi government, Trump replied: ÂItÂs being investigated, itÂs being looked at very, very strongly, and we would be very upset and angry if that were the case.ÂŽ ÂAs of this moment, they deny it, and they deny it vehemently. Could it be them? Yes,ÂŽ he said. But Trump said he was reluctant to cancel a $110 billion arms deal with the Saudis, even if Riyadh is found responsible. ÂI donÂt want to hurt jobs. I donÂt want to lose an order like that. And you know what, there are other ways of punishing Â„ to use a word thatÂs a pretty harsh word Â„ but itÂs true.ÂŽ Khashoggi, a critic of the Saudi government, Khashoggi published his work in Western media outlets including the Washington Post.By DARLENE SUPERVILLE and ZEKE MILLERASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON Â„ Freed American pastor Andrew Brunson fell to one knee in the Oval OfÂ“ ce and placed his hand on President Donald TrumpÂs shoulder in prayer on Saturday, asking God to provide the president Âsupernatural wisdom to accomplish all the plans you have for this country and for him.ÂŽ Trump welcomed Brunson to the White House to celebrate his release from nearly two years of conÂ“ nement in Turkey, which had sparked a diplomatic row with a key ally and outcry from U.S. evangelical groups. Brunson returned to the U.S. aboard a military jet shortly before meeting the president. He was imprisoned for nearly two years after being detained in October 2016, formally arrested that December and placed under house arrest on July 25 for health reasons. ÂFrom a Turkish prison to the White House in 24 hours, thatÂs not bad,ÂŽ Trump said. BrunsonÂs homecoming amounts to a diplomatic Â„ and possibly political Â„ win for Trump and his evangelical base. Coming on the heels of the conÂ“ rmation of a conservative justice to the Supreme Court, BrunsonÂs return is likely to leave evangelical Christians feeling good about the president and motivated get to the polls in the Nov. 6 midterm elections. Brunson appeared to be in good health and good spirits. When he asked Trump if he could pray for him, the president replied, ÂWell, I need it probably more than anyone ese in this room, so that would be very nice, thank you.ÂŽ Brunson left his chair beside Trump, kneeled and placed a hand on the presidentÂs shoulder.

Trump promises Âsevere punishmentÂ if Saudis killed journalistBy AL-HADJI KUDRA MALIRO and CARA ANNAASSOCIATED PRESSBENI, Congo Â„ A runaway hearse carrying an Ebola victim has become the latest example of sometimes violent community resistance complicating efforts to contain a Congo outbreak Â„ and causing a worrying new rise in cases. The deadly virusÂ appearance for the Â“ rst time in the far northeast has sparked fear. Suspected contacts of infected people have tried to slip away. Residents have assaulted health teams. The rate of new Ebola cases has more than doubled since the start of this month, experts say. Safe burials are particularly sensitive as some outraged family members reject the intervention of health workers in the deeply personal moment, even as they put their own lives at risk. On Wednesday, a wary peace was negotiated over the body of an Ebola victim, one of 95 deaths among 172 conÂ“ rmed cases so far, CongoÂs health ministry said. Her family demanded that an acquaintance drive the hearse, while they agreed to wear protective gear to carry the casket. A police vehicle would follow. On the way to the cemetery, however, the hearse peeled away Âat full speed,ÂŽ the ministry said. A violent confrontation followed with local youth once the hearse was found at the familyÂs own burial plot elsewhere. The procession eventually reached the cemetery by dayÂs end. The next day, with a better understanding of what was at stake, several family members appeared voluntarily at a hospital for Ebola vaccinations, the ministry said.

By RUSS BYNUMASSOCIATED PRESSMEXICO BEACH, Fla Â„ Tom Garcia watched in terror as Â“ ngers of water pushed inland across the beach and began Â“ lling up his home. His wife handed him a drill and Garcia used screws to pin his front and back door shut. But soon the storm surge from Hurricane Michael was up to his chest. His dogs sat on his bed as it Â” oated. He said it took all of his strength to hold his sliding door shut as the waters outside the glass rose higher than those Â” ooding the house. ÂIt was life or death,ÂŽ Garcia said through tears Friday as he walked amid the destruction in Mexico Beach. Michael was one of the most powerful hurricanes to ever make landfall in the U.S., and this Gulf Coast community of about 1,000 people was in its bullÂs-eye Wednesday. While most residents Â” ed ahead of the stormÂs arrival, others stayed to face the hurricane. They barely escaped as homes were smashed from their foundations, neighborhoods got submerged, and broken boards, sheet metal and other debris Â” ew through the air. Hector Morales, a 57-year-old restaurant cook, never even thought about evacuating. He grew up in Puerto Rico, where he said Âyou learn how to survive a storm.ÂŽ His mobile home isnÂt on the beach. But the canal lined with boat docks behind his home quickly overÂ” owed as the hurricane came inland. Soon, Morales said, his mobile home started Â” oating.

News outlets report 60-yearold John Stapleton was arrested Thursday on charges including lewd and lascivious molestation of a victim under 12. Okaloosa County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce deputies say the attack happened at a Crestview middle school that was turned into temporary housing for shelter from Hurricane Michael. Deputies say a witness reported seeing a video of the homeless man touching a child in inappropriately underneath her clothing. They say authorities found the video and Stapleton admitted to touching the girl, though says it was Ânot in a lewd manner.ÂŽ ItÂs unclear if Stapleton has a lawyer.Woman says she fatally stabbed husband after tripping on rugLAKELAND (AP) Â„ A Florida woman charged with killing her husband told investigators she accidentally stabbed him after tripping on a rug. The Orlando Sentinel reports Rachel Fidanian of Lakeland was charged this week with second-degree murder for the June 25 death of her 40-yearold husband, Bryant Fidanian. The 38-year-old suspect told Polk County sheriffÂs investigators she was cutting pizza with a knife when the coupleÂs dog came into the house covered in feces. She said she ran toward the dog, tripped on a rug and fell into her husband, stabbing him in the chest. While she described their relationship as Âwonderful,ÂŽ detectives say neighbors reported frequent arguments and deputies had been called seven times to the home. Fidanian was being held without bond Friday. Court records donÂt list an attorney.Woman charged in baby sonÂs hot car deathSPRING HILL (AP) Â„ Authorities say a Florida woman has been charged in the death of her infant son, who was left alone in a hot car. A Hernando County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce news release says 38-year-old Cami Lee Moyer was arrested Tuesday and charged with third-degree murder and child neglect. Detectives say 9-month-old Keyton OÂCallaghan was left in his motherÂs car outside a Spring Hill home one night in August and discovered by his father shortly before noon the next day. The father performed CPR on the boy until rescuers arrived. The infant was pronounced dead at the hospital. Moyer was being held without bond.

Charlie Minn is the director of ÂParkland: Inside Building 12ÂŽ, a graphic, two-hour retelling of the ValentineÂs Day massacre at Majory Stoneman Douglas High School. The show opened this weekend to a small, private audience that included survivors. Minn convinced students to share their videos with him. He originally didnÂt blur any of them, saying people should see the full impac. But after a parent advocacy group complaine, he decided to blur the images of the deceased victims.

TheyÂre the 21st and 22nd fatal collisions this year, out of 24 total panther deaths. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says the remains of the male and female, both 4 months old, were collected Wednesday near Dinner Island Ranch Wildlife Management Area in Hendry County. Florida panthers once roamed the entire Southeast, but now their habitat mostly is conÂ“ned to a small region of Florida along the Gulf of Mexico. Up to 230 Florida panthers remain in the wild. HEADLINES AROUND THE STATE HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLDJAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) Â„ Torrential rains triggered Â”ash Â”oods and landslides on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, killing at least 27 people, including a dozen children at a school, ofÂ“cials said Saturday. A Â”ash Â”ood with mud and debris from landslides struck Mandailing Natal district in North Sumatra province and smashed an Islamic school in Muara Saladi village, where 29 children were swept away on Friday afternoon, said local police chief Irsan Sinuhaji. He said rescuers retrieved the bodies of 11 children from mud and rubble hours later. The National Disaster Mitigation AgencyÂs spokesman, Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, said rescuers and villagers managed to rescue 17 other children and several teachers on Friday and pulled out the body of a child on Saturday near Aek Saladi river, close to the school. A video obtained by The Associated Press showed relatives crying besides their loved ones at a health clinic where the bodies of the children were lying, covered with blankets. Nugroho said two bodies were found early Saturday from a car washed away by Â”oods in Mandailing Natal, where 17 houses collapsed and 12 were swept away. Hundreds of other homes were Â”ooded up to 7 feet high, while landslides occurred in eight areas of the region. Four villagers were killed after landslides hit 29 houses and Â”ooded about 100 buildings in neighboring Sibolga district, Nugroho said. He said Â”ash Â”oods also smashed several villages in West Sumatra provinceÂs Tanah Datar district, killing Â“ve people, including two children, and leaving another missing.

KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) Â„ Seven people, including South Korean climbers, were killed and two more are missing on Gurja Himal mountain after a strong storm swept through their base camp, Nepalese police said Saturday. A storm Friday night destroyed their camp and two rescue helicopters sent early Saturday were unable to land because of bad weather conditions on the mountain, said police ofÂ“cial Bir Bahadur Budamagar. Villagers who reached base camp Saturday afternoon found the bodies of four South Korean climbers, two Nepalese guides and another person yet to be identiÂ“ed, while the search was continuing for two more, Budamagar said. There were Â“ve South Korean climbers and four Nepalese guides in the camp when the strong storm hit. It was unlikely the weather would clear on Saturday and helicopter Â”ights were likely to be possible only on Sunday. A police team was heading toward the base camp on foot and will likely reach there on Sunday, Budamagar said.

BEIRUT (AP) Â„ The Islamic State group stormed a settlement for displaced people in eastern Syria and abducted scores of civilians in the latest attack by the extremists on civilians, a U.S.-backed Syrian force and a war monitor said on Saturday. The area in SyriaÂs eastern Deir el-Zour province has been witnessing days of intense clashes between IS and the U.S.backed Syrian Democratic Forces amid bad weather and low visibility. The SDF said in a statement that the Â“ghting on Friday in the Hajin camp for the displaced left 20 IS gunmen and ÂseveralÂŽ SDF Â“ghters dead. It added that IS gunmen seized civilians by force and took them to areas in the last pocket of territory they control in the region. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors SyriaÂs war, said as many as 130 families were abducted by the extremists. The Observatory warned that IS might kill them. The Observatory said the families are mostly made up of foreign women, including widows of IS members who had been killed earlier in the Syrian war. Since IS lost most of its self-declared caliphate in Syria and Iraq over the past two years, the extremists have been resorting to attacks on civilians to show that they are still effective. The area of FridayÂs attack is on the edge of the last pocket held by IS in Syria. Intense Â“ghting has been ongoing on the area since Wednesday, amid a sand storm. Not counting the dead in the camp for the displaced, the Observatory said the Â“ghting in the area in the past three days killed 37 SDF Â“ghters and 58 IS gunmen. The SDF launched an offensive to regain control of the IS-held pockets of territory last month.Islamic State kidnaps 130 families in eastern Syria, monitor reportsAfrican youth opposition movement aims to drive changeNAIROBI, Kenya (AP) Â„ Popular young opposition leaders from East Africa are uniting with like-minded colleagues in West and Southern Africa to form a movement to challenge the misrule that has plagued the continent. Kenyan legislator Babu Owino said in a talk late Friday with Ugandan pop star-turned-opposition Â“gure Bobi Wine (whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu) and Kenyan activistturned-politician Boniface Mwangi that they are reaching out to South AfricaÂs Julius Malema and ZimbabweÂs Nelson Chamisa, among others. ThereÂs a deliberate effort in Africa by senior politicians to distance youth from politics and governance, yet 70 percent of the continentÂs population is below the age of 35, said Ssentamu. Ssentamu, a lawmaker since last year, says heÂs Â“ghting for freedom from oppression and wants 74-year-old Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, in power since 1986, to retire. Ssentamu is facing treason charges in Uganda after being arrested and tortured for allegedly organizing the stoning of the presidential motorcade. The government denies allegations that Ssentamu was tortured. Ssentamu said he was happy to speak freely in Kenya because in Uganda police would violently disperse any of his public meetings. He said never wanted to become a politician but he felt he had been complaining for too long. Mwangi said despite AfricaÂs people mostly being young, the majority of the continentÂs leadership was elderly. ÂWho are they speaking for? They are stealing, looting and borrowing heavily,ÂŽ said Mwangi. He urged young people to actively engage in politics, run for ofÂ“ce and make changes from within rather than simply complaining from the outside.Saudi-led airstrike kills 17 in contested Yemeni port citySANAA, Yemen (AP) Â„ An airstrike by the Saudiled coalition targeting YemenÂs Shiite rebels known as Houthis killed at least 17 people in the port-city of Hodeida on Saturday, Yemeni rebel ofÂ“cials said. The strike, which hit in the Jebel Ras area, also wounded 20 people, a spokesman for the rebel-run Health Ministry, Youssef al-Hadari, said. Hodeida, with its key port installations that bring in U.N. and other humanitarian aid, has become the center of YemenÂs conÂ”ict, with ground troops allied to the coalition struggling to drive out the rebels who control it. Tribal leaders said the strike hit trafÂ“c, including a bus that was completely destroyed, killing all inside, adding that women and children were among the dead. The tribal leaders spoke on condition of anonymity, fearing for their safety. The death toll is expected to rise as many of the wounded were in critical condition. The Saudi-led coalition has been locked in a stalemated war with the rebels since 2015. An estimated 10,000 people have been killed in YemenÂs conÂ”ict, which has produced what the United Nations says is the worldÂs worst humanitarian crisis.Retired priest who admitted to molesting children dies at 97HAGATNA, Guam (AP) Â„ A retired priest accused in more than 130 sexual abuse lawsuits and who admitted to molesting children on Guam has died. The PaciÂ“c Daily News reports the Archdiocese of Agana says Louis Brouillard, who was ordained on Guam in 1948, died Wednesday in his native Minnesota. He was 97. The archdiocese, in a statement released Friday, said BrouillardÂs health had been declining in recent months. Brouillard served on Guam until 1981 as a parish priest in Mangilao, Chalan Pago, Barrigada, Malojloj and Tumon, and as a teacher at Father Duenas Memorial School. Brouillard, in a 2016 interview with a PaciÂ“c Daily News reporter, stated ÂitÂs possibleÂŽ he sexually abused boys while serving on Guam. He later signed an afÂ“davit admitting to abusing 20 or more boys on the island.WORLD/STATE NEWS

We are both gainfully employed in sales, and together we earn nearly $175,000 annually. After doing poorly in the stock market during the past two years, we decided to change stockbrokers and Â“nd a professional whom we could work with to build a solid portfolio with stocks that have good growth potential. At this point, dividend income is not important to us. Our new broker has recommended that we invest $100,000 in 10 different sectors Â„ telecommunications, utilities, tech, retail, pharmaceuticals, Â“nance, biotechnology, oil and gas, defense, and foreign stocks. He wants us to invest $10,000 in each sector, and the Â“rst stock he has recommended is U.S. Cellular. My partner doesnÂt care for this stock, and he wants to settle this disagreement before we proceed with the other sectors. Please give us your opinion of this stock. Â„ JF, Detroit Dear JF: U.S. Cellular was founded in 1983, and its cellular business is promoted by 256 retail stores and kiosks around the country. In my opinion, this cellular company is a great big huge blah. And I canÂt imagine one single reason in the entire universe this broker would recommend an investment of $10,000 in U.S. Cellular (USM-$44). USM has to be among the most mundane, tiresome, dull, boring, humdrum public companies traded on the New York Stock Exchange. And because a company usually imitates the personalities in its top management, USM must have pitifully tiresome, terribly mundane, appallingly dull, incredibly boring and dreadfully humdrum management. USMÂs chief accounting ofÂ“cer doesnÂt own a single share of USM. USMÂs senior vice president in charge of sales doesnÂt own USM stock, either. Neither do the executive vice president of operations, the chief technology ofÂ“cer, the EVP of Â“nance and numerous other ofÂ“cers and directors of this 6,000-employee company. The reason so many ofÂ“cers and directors donÂt own USM stock is simple: None of them feels the stock is worth a beggarÂs dime. During the past 10 years, the market price of USM (even with buybacks beginning in 2009) shares has been on a gentle decline, with a steady rate of lower high prices and a steady rate of lower low prices. I wouldnÂt recommend this stock to a mudsill in a cockÂ“ght. Revenues of this cellular company, which serves 5.1 million U.S. customers, have been up and down on its income statements like a $1 Duncan yo-yo since 2008. That year, USMÂs revenues were $4.2 billion, but even as revenues have grown for nearly all cellular companies for the past decade, USM will be fortunate to record revenues of $3.9 billion this year. Even T-Mobile and Vodafone continue to grow revenues. By some kind of corporate black magic, USMÂs management was able to make about $300 million (7.5 percent) of revenues disappear into the ether. And while other telecoms managed to produce respectable net proÂ“t margins of 4 to 5 percent, USMÂs net proÂ“t margins have been all over the map Â„ from less than 1 percent in 2008 to 5.1 percent to 3.2 percent to 2.5 percent to 6 percent (wow) to 1.2 percent to 0.3 percent to 1.9 percent. And over the past 10 years, USMÂs earnings have been just a screw-up and a screwdown. Last year, USMÂs management embarrassingly posted earnings of 14 cents a share, and this year, earnings may, on a wing and a prayer, come to 80 cents a share, with net proÂ“t margins fortuitously expected to come in at 1.7 percent. And dividends? Well, IÂm told that USM has, since the Civil War, never paid a dividend. Frankly, thereÂs no reason for this to be a public corporation. In the past 10 years, this company has been sitting at its NYSE post like a blob, trading about 100,000 times a day. Its inutile, dozy management should petition the NYSE to delist USM and make room for another company that could better represent the Big Board. DonÂt dare buy USM. If this is one of your new brokerÂs recommendations, youÂd better send me his other recommendations, too.

Inspectors with the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs found the remains Friday at the former Cantrell Funeral Home, just hours after receiving the letter telling them where the bodies were located, Detroit police Lt.

The remains of the infants, some of them apparently stillborn, were in a false ceiling between the Â“rst and second Â”oors, Brower said. Authorities do not know how long the remains had been stored there, he said. Investigators also have not determined who might have left the bodies there. ÂObviously, it was either an employee or someone who had knowledgeÂŽ of the funeral home and the building, Bowser said.

Jameca LaJoyce Boone, the funeral homeÂs designated manager for a year before its closure, said she was shocked by the discovery of bodies in the ceiling.

By RYAN BEENEBLOOMBERG NEWS (TNS)WASHINGTON Â…Â… Jared Kushner, President Donald TrumpÂs sonin-law, paid almost no federal income taxes in several recent years despite a ballooning net worth and billions of dollars spent building his real estate empire, the New York Times reported Saturday. Citing conÂ“dential Â“nancial records, the Times reported that Kushner, a senior White House adviser, for years minimized his tax bills by booking heavy losses on reported depreciation of his real estate holdings that overwhelmed his reported income. The Times noted that nothing in the documents indicate that Kushner or his company broke the law. In a 2015 example, Kushner booked $8.3 million in losses driven by ÂsigniÂ“cant depreciationÂŽ of real estate owned by Kushner and his company. The loss offset KushnerÂs income of $1.7 million in salary and investment gains, the Times reported. More than a dozen tax accountants and lawyers reviewed the records for the Times. One told the newspaper that the records indicated that Kushner paid little or no federal income taxes in Â“ve of the past eight years. The documents reviewed by the newspaper describe KushnerÂs business dealings and Â“nances from 2009 to 2016. They were drafted with KushnerÂs participation as part of a review of his Â“nances by a prospective lender and contain information from his federal tax Â“lings in addition to other data provided by advisers, according to the Times. The records were given to the newspaper by Âa person who has had Â“nancial dealings with Kushner and his family,ÂŽ it said. A spokesman for KushnerÂs attorney told the Times that Kushner followed the advice of attorneys and accountants, and Â“led and paid all taxes required by law. The spokesman also said he wouldnÂt respond to assumptions taken from documents that offer an incomplete view of KushnerÂs Â“nances, the paper said.Jared Kushner used paper losses to minimize his taxes, report says KUSHNERTrump signs Save our Seas Act into lawKETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) Â„ President Donald Trump recently signed into law a bill that lawmakers have called a point of unity among Republicans and Democrats.

The program works to reduce debris through research, prevention and reduction. The Save our Seas legislation keeps the program going by continuing to authorize $10 million per year for the next Â“ve years. The bill also encourages the executive branch to reach out and engage the leaders of countries Â„ located primarily in Asia Â„ that are responsible for much of the sea pollution found around the planetÂs oceans.

Chuck Grassley, authorized the letterÂs disclosure following consultation with the department. The letter blacks out the names of four other Clinton researchers whose security clearances were withdrawn last month. The committee says the update on ClintonÂs security clearance is part of an ongoing State Department review related to her use of a nongovernment email server.By JENNIFER A. DLOUHYBLOOMBERG NEWS (TNS)WASHINGTON Â…Â… Donald TrumpÂs presidency has inspired huge protests, with hundreds of thousands of women marching on the National Mall and scientists swarming the White House fence. But now the Trump administration is seeking to restrict protests by effectively blocking them along the north sidewalk of the White House and making it easier for police to shut them down. A National Park Service proposal also would open the door to charging organizers for the cost of putting up barricades or reseeding grass. The proposed regulation could curtail demonstrations on some of WashingtonÂs most popular staging grounds for protests, including the National Mall where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his ÂI have a dreamÂŽÂ speech in 1963. It also includes Lafayette Square across from the White House and the Pennsylvania Avenue sidewalks in front of the Trump International Hotel. The proposal dovetails with RepublicansÂ increasingly heated campaign rhetoric over Âmob ruleÂŽ and the boisterous protests against the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Trump has also been antagonistic toward protesters, once waxing nostalgic about how it used to be socially acceptable to assault them. ÂWhen you think about petitioning your government for redress of grievances, this is the nationÂs capital Â…Â… this is where you come to do it,ÂŽ said Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, executive director of the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund, which opposes the proposal. ÂAnd now you have the Trump administration that is not only engaging in extreme rhetoric against demonstrators and suggesting that protests should be illegal,ÂŽ but Âtaking concrete actions to suppress dissent and suppress free speech.ÂŽ The proposal, issued in August and open for comment through Monday, says demonstrations can impose substantial costs on the federal government. Some of the changes are designed to Âpreserve an atmosphere of contemplationÂŽ around the memorials, the Park Service said. Other revisions, according to the proposal, would help protect National Mall grass from being trampled and give the Park Service more time to negotiate logistics before permits would be issued for demonstrations. Fee requirements could make mass protests Âtoo expensive to happen,ÂŽ said Arthur Spitzer, legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union in the District of Columbia. ÂManaging public lands for the beneÂ“t of the American peopleÂŽ Â…Â… whether demonstrators or tourists Â…Â… Âis what Congress funds the National Park Service to do,ÂŽ Spitzer said in a blog post. ÂWhile the Park Service may be strapped for funds, it cannot balance its budget on the backs of people seeking to exercise their constitutional rights.ÂŽ Current National Park Service rules for rallies and marches have been forged through decades of court cases, including lawsuits that successfully challenged government restrictions. The proposal would rewrite many of those rules Â„ and, if enacted, face certain litigation. The plan would transform the way the agency vets demonstrations and where they can be conducted. For example, it could blur the lines between the Park ServiceÂs treatment of demonstrations, which typically get more deference, and Âspecial events,ÂŽ such as festivals and the Â“lming of movies.Trump proposal could squelch Washington protests HEADLINES AROUND THE NATIONNATIONAL NEWS

He was accused of committing crimes on behalf of Kurdish militants who have been Â“ghting the Turkish state for decades and to aid a Pennsylvania-based Muslim cleric, Fethullah Gulen, accused by Turkey of engineering the failed coup. He faced up to 35 years in jail if convicted of all the charges against him. Administration ofÂ“cials cast BrunsonÂs release as vindication of TrumpÂs hard-nosed negotiating stance, saying Turkey tried to set terms for BrunsonÂs release but that Trump was insistent on BrunsonÂs release without conditions. Trump maintained there was no deal for BrunsonÂs freedom, but the president dangled the prospect of better relations between the U.S. and its NATO ally. ÂWe do not pay ransom in this country,ÂŽ Trump said. Where previous administrations kept negotiations over U.S. prisoners held abroad close to the vest, Trump has elevated them to causes clbres, striking a tough line with allies and foes alike. Trump thanked TurkeyÂs president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who had resisted the demands of Trump and other high-level U.S. ofÂ“cials for BrunsonÂs release. Erdogan had insisted that his countryÂs courts are independent, though he previously had suggested a possible swap for Brunson. The U.S. had repeatedly called for BrunsonÂs release and, this year, sanctioned two Turkish ofÂ“cials and doubled tariffs on steel and aluminum imports citing in part BrunsonÂs plight. Trump said the U.S. greatly appreciated BrunsonÂs release and said the move Âwill lead to good, perhaps great, relationsÂŽ between the U.S. and fellow NATO ally Turkey, and said the White House would Âtake a lookÂŽ at the sanctions. Trump asked Brunson and his family which candidate they voted for in 2016, saying he was conÂ“dent they had gone for him. ÂI would like to say I sent in an absentee ballot from prison,ÂŽ Brunson quipped. Evangelical voters overwhelmingly voted for the president despite discomfort with his personal shortcomings, in large part because he pledged to champion their causes, from to defending persecuted Christians overseas to appointing conservative justices to the Supreme Court. In the space of seven days, less than a month from the midterm elections, Trump delivered on both fronts. Prominent evangelical leaders such as Tony Perkins have championed BrunsonÂs case, as has Vice President Mike Pence. First word of BrunsonÂs arrival back on American soil Saturday came from Perkins, president of the Family Research Council. Perkins tweeted just after noon that he had landed at a military base outside Washington with Brunson and his wife, Norine. Erdogan said on he hoped the two countries will continue to cooperate Âas it beÂ“ts two allies.ÂŽ Erdogan also called for joint efforts against terrorism, and he listed the Islamic State group, Kurdish militants and the network of a U.S.-based Muslim cleric whom Turkey blames for a failed coup in 2016. Relations between the countries have become severely strained over BrunsonÂs detention and a host of other issues. A Turkish court on Friday convicted Brunson of having links to terrorism and sentenced him to just over three years in prison, but released the 50-year-old evangelical pastor because he had already spent nearly two years in detention. An earlier charge of espionage was dropped. Hours later, Brunson was Â”own out of Turkey, his home for more than two decades. He was taken to a U.S. military hospital in Landstuhl, Germany, for a medical checkup. ÂI love Jesus. I love Turkey,ÂŽ an emotional Brunson, who had maintained his innocence, told the court at FridayÂs hearing. BrunsonÂs release could beneÂ“t Turkey by allowing the government to focus on an escalating diplomatic crisis over Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi contributor to The Washington Post who has been missing for more than a week and is feared dead after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Turkish ofÂ“cials suspect Khashoggi, a critic of the Saudi government, was killed in the consulate; Saudi ofÂ“cials deny it. Trump maintained the two cases were not linked, saying BrunsonÂs release amid the Khashoggi investigation was Âstrict coincidence.ÂŽ Turkey may also hope the U.S. will now lift the tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminum imports, a move that would inject conÂ“dence into an economy rattled by high inÂ”ation and foreign currency debt. But BrunsonÂs release doesnÂt resolve disagreements over U.S. support for Kurdish Â“ghters in Syria, as well as a plan by Turkey to buy Russian surface-to-air missiles. Turkey is also frustrated by the refusal of the U.S. to extradite Gulen.FREEDFROM PAGE 1manipulated the corpse,ÂŽ it added. Ebola spreads via bodily Â”uids of those infected, including the dead. The Beni community where the confrontation occurred is at the center of Ebola containment efforts. To the alarm of the World Health Organization and others, it is also where community resistance has been the most persistent Â„ and where many of the new cases are found. Chronic mistrust after years of rebel attacks is part of the Âtoxic mixÂŽ in Beni, WHOÂs emergencies chief, Peter Salama, said in a Twitter post. So far, the Ebola work in Beni has been suspended twice since the outbreak was declared on Aug. 1. A Âdead cityÂŽ of mourning in response to a rebel attack caused the Â“rst. WednesdayÂs violence caused the second. With each pause, crucial efforts to track thousands of possible Ebola contacts can slide, risking further infections. Defending themselves, Beni residents have pointed out the shock of having one of the worldÂs most notorious diseases appear along with strangers in biohazard suits who tell them how to say goodbye to loved ones killed by the virus. ÂUntil now we didnÂt know enough about Ebola and we felt marginalized when Red Cross agents came in and took the corpse and buried it without family members playing a role,ÂŽ Beni resident Patrick Kyana, who said a friend lost his father to the virus, told The Associated Press. ÂItÂs very difÂ“cult. Imagine that your son dies and someone refuses to let you assist in his burial. In Africa we respect death greatly.ÂŽ Until recently many people in Beni didnÂt believe that Ebola existed, thinking it was a government plot to further delay presidential elections, Kizito Hangi, president of BeniÂs civil society, told the AP. Now the population has started to catch on and cooperate, Hangi said. ÂThe problem was that the health workers all came from outside, but local specialists have been included to persuade and inform people in local languages.ÂŽ The head of emergency Ebola operations with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, Jamie LeSueur, acknowledged the problem. In early October two Red Cross volunteers were severely injured in an attack during safe burials in the community of Butemo. Another volunteer was injured in September by people throwing stones. ÂIt raised a lot of questions for all of us. Where is the violence coming from?ÂŽ he said. They have stepped up efforts to collaborate with communities and be clearer about messaging while working within cultural norms as best as possible. ÂOf course there are limitations,ÂŽ LeSueur said. ÂSome people like to view the corpse as it is buried but with Ebola it is difÂ“cult to open up the body bag.ÂŽ In the emotionally charged environment where families have lost loved ones, a misstep could quickly raise tensions. While CongoÂs government is acting to give more protection to its own safe burial teams in Beni, LeSueur noted that the ÂmilitarizationÂŽ of similar efforts in the far deadlier Ebola outbreak in West Africa a few years ago led some residents to hide or not report deaths from the virus. ÂI donÂt think that will be the case in this eventÂŽ but everyone remembers that lesson, he said. With its position of neutrality the Red Cross doesnÂt use armed guards in any case, LeSueur added. ÂCommunity acceptance, thatÂs our security.ÂŽEBOLAFROM PAGE 1 By RUSS BYNUM and BRENDAN FARRINGTONASSOCIATED PRESSMEXICO BEACH, Fla.

About 1,700 search and rescue personnel have checked 25,000 homes, Florida Gov. Rick Scott said. Authorities say there is little doubt the death toll will rise from the storm, which made landfall Wednesday as a Category 4 hurricane with 155 mph winds and heavy storm surge. The tally of lives lost across the South stood at 15, including the victim found in the rubble of Mexico Beach, where about 1,000 people live. ÂEverything is time consuming,ÂŽ said Capt. Ignatius Carroll, of the South Florida Urban Search and Rescue task force. ÂYou donÂt want to put a rush on a thorough rescue.ÂŽ More roads were passable along the storm-ravaged coast as crews cleared downed trees and power lines, but trafÂ“c lights remained out and long lines heightened tensions at one of the areaÂs few open gas stations. ÂI want you to get back in your vehicle and stop!ÂŽ one woman shouted at a man accosting her as she tried to squeeze her car between two idling vehicles at a Panama City service station running two fuel pumps on a generator. ÂYouÂre an idiot!ÂŽ the man shouted back. About 4,000 members of FloridaÂs national guard have been called up to deal with the storm, including 500 added on Saturday. Nearly 2,000 law-enforcement ofÂ“cials have been sent into the Panhandle. Schools will stay closed indeÂ“nitely, a hospital halted operations and sent 200 patients to hospitals elsewhere in Florida and in Alabama, and more than 253,000 customers in the Panhandle remain without power. ÂEverybody just needs to help each other right now,ÂŽ Scott said after meeting with emergency responders in the Panama City area. Some residents were packing up and getting as far away as they could. ÂWeÂre getting our stuff and weÂre going,ÂŽ said Jeff Pearsey, 48. Michael was one of the most powerful hurricanes to ever make landfall in the U.S. While most residents Â”ed ahead of the stormÂs arrival, others stayed to face the hurricane. Some barely escaped with their lives as homes were pushed off their foundations and whole neighborhoods became submerged. How many others were not so fortunate was still not clear. By one count, state ofÂ“cials said, 285 people in Mexico Beach deÂ“ed mandatory evacuation orders and stayed behind. ItÂs unclear how many people stayed behind in nearby communities. One who did, Albert Blackwell, was preparing on Saturday to cover holes in the roof of his apartment and take a chain saw to trees that fell and broke his windows just outside Panama City. ÂIÂm the idiot that rode it out here in this place,ÂŽ said Blackwell, 65, sweat dripping from his face. He doesnÂt plan to leave; he wants to protect his home from looters. Emergency ofÂ“cials said theyÂve received thousands of calls asking about missing people, but with cellphone service out across a wide area, they found it impossible to know who among those unaccounted for were safe but just unable to dial out to friends or family. Federal Emergency Management Agency chief Brock Long said he expected the death toll to rise. Searchers were trying to determine if the person found dead in Mexico Beach had been alone or was part of a family. Authorities have set up distribution centers to dole out food and water to victims. TheyÂve also set up a triage tent to treat residents stepping on nails and cutting themselves on debris. President Donald Trump announced plans to visit Florida and hard-hit Georgia early next week but didnÂt say what day he would arrive. On Saturday he approved federal disaster aid relief for four Alabama counties affected by the storm.Searches intensify after body found in MichaelÂs wake AP PHOTOMembers of a South Florida urban search and rescue team try to gain entry to a home while looking for survivors of hurricane Michael in Mexico Beach, Friday.

NEW YORK TIMES SUNDAY CROSSWORDFOR ANSWERS TURN TO PAGE 3No. 1007 Name That CompanyI trace my roots back to 1898, when my founder failed to make granola and flaked wheat berries instead. He later flaked corn, and a breakfast staple was born. I introduced my Bran Flakes in 1915. I was one of the first companies to include nutritional information on packaging. I increased my hiring during the Great Depression and made K rations for soldiers in World War II. IÂm based in Battle Creek, Michigan. Today my brands include Pringles, Cheez-It, Keebler, Special K, Pop-Tarts, Eggo, Famous Amos, Morningstar Farms, Nutri-Grain, Kashi and RXBAR. I rake in about $13 billion annually. Who am I?Think you know the answer? WeÂll announce it in next weekÂs edition. HereÂs a simplified example. Imagine that the S&P 500 rises 10 percent, falls 30 percent, then rallies 10 percent. Without using leverage, this would turn a $1,000 investment into $847. ThatÂs not a great performance, but you live to invest another day, and a gain of about 18 percent would make up for the loss. On the other hand, a triple-leveraged (Â3xÂŽ) S&P 500 ETF would turn that into a gain of 30 percent, a drop of 90 percent, and a gain of 30 percent. Your original $1,000 investment would plunge in value to just $169 Â„ and you would need a 492 percent rebound just to get back to even. ThatÂs why leveraged ETFs are so dangerous. Of course, this is a simplified example and the market doesnÂt generally move 10 percent (or 30 percent) in a day, but even smaller ups and downs can have a devastating effect over time. Both the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the independent Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) have warned about the risks of leveraged ETFs. Stick with regular, non-leveraged ETFs, and learn more about them at etfdb.com and fool.com/ investing/etf .The Motley Fool TakeIn Your Face(book)Many investors have been worried that FacebookÂs (Nasdaq: FB) growth rate would hit a wall, but its latest earnings report instead showed signs of significant operating momentum. Its number of monthly active users jumped 11 percent year over year to over 2.2 billion people (!) in the second quarter of 2018; roughly two-thirds of those folks logged in to the service at least once a day. Facebook had no trouble monetizing all of that engagement, either, as advertising sales spiked 42 percent year over year to $13 billion. FacebookÂs average revenue per user has room to grow, and the company is still early in the game in exploiting the fast-growing online advertising industry. Importantly, it also owns other major social media businesses, including WhatsApp and Instagram. Its media empire generates a gross profit margin of 83 percent and an operating profit margin of 44 percent. Sure, the companyÂs expansion pace is slowing, as tends to happen with companies that grow huge. ItÂs also likely that its fat profit margins will shrink some as Facebook spends billions bulking up its data infrastructure and rolling out service improvements. But thereÂs no social media business that can come close to claiming the community engagement Facebook has attracted, let alone its market-thumping earnings power. With its core business looking healthy, this stock could be poised for strong long-term gains. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Facebook.) Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentHung UpMy dumbest investment was in the Finnish telecom Nokia. I read in a well-respected investment newsletter that the company would soon be closing a deal to sell equipment in Russia. But the market crash of 2008 sent Nokia shares down deep. I kept hanging in there, but finally got disgusted and took the loss. It was too much of a hassle, waiting on a loser. I still wish them luck. Â„ A.M., online The Fool Responds: Nokia was once a titan in the smartphone arena, boasting more than half the global market in 2007. By 2013, though, its share had dropped to 2 percent. The 2008-2009 market crash was not its sole problem, though Â„ its lunch was being eaten by Apple and GoogleÂs Android system. While other companiesÂ stocks recovered after the market crash, NokiaÂs stock kept dropping for some years. Nokia is still a significant smartphone name, but itÂs no longer making its own devices. It sold its smartphone business to HMD Global (a company run by former Nokia executives) and is licensing its name, which appears on the phones. Never invest in a stock just because of rumors youÂve heard about it Â„ and if itÂs falling, be sure to do enough digging to find out whether its troubles seem temporary or lasting. Nokia still has believers today; they expect growth from deals with China-based companies and the rollout of new 5G networks. Share-Splitting MathQDoes it benefit shareholders when companies buy back shares? Â„ G.L., onlineAIt certainly can, as the reduction in the share count leaves each remaining share with a bigger stake in the company. (Imagine a pizza being cut into seven instead of eight pieces Â„ each piece will be bigger.) But the company should buy back shares only when theyÂre undervalued. If it buys back overvalued shares, it gets fewer shares for its money and destroys shareholder value. That money might have been better spent paying dividends or in some other way. HereÂs how buybacks work, in a simplified example: Imagine that Acme ExplosivesÂ (ticker: KBOOM) earnings have stalled at $10 million annually, and it has 10 million shares outstanding. Its earnings per share (EPS) are thus $1. If Acme buys back a tenth of its shares, leaving 9 million, then its EPS suddenly rises to $1.11 ($10 million divided by 9 million). When studying a companyÂs financials, itÂs preferable to see earnings growing mostly due to business growth, not share buybacks. You can examine a companyÂs income statement for signs of buybacks Â„ or look up news reports on them. Apple, for example, had 6.5 billion shares outstanding back in 2013, and its recent share count was 4.9 billion. That reflects share buybacks. ***QIf I buy shares of a stock after its Âdate of recordÂŽ for a stock split, but before the actual split, will I get the additional shares? Â„ R.B., Dothan, AlabamaAYes. As long as youÂre holding the stock on the date of the split, your shares will be split Â„ increasing in number and decreasing in share price proportionately. The record date is mainly for accounting purposes.Want more information about stocks?

But beware of leveraged ETFs Â„ the ones that tend to have Â3xÂŽ or Â2xÂŽ in their names. First, though, understand what ETFs are. TheyÂre kind of like mutual funds (index funds, typically) that trade like stocks. You can buy or sell as little as a single share, as often as youÂd like during the trading day Â„ but youÂre often best served holding on to good ones for years, just as with stocks of great companies. Leveraged ETFs, though, are designed to deliver some multiple of the daily performance of whatever underlying index the ETF tracks. (A Â2xÂŽ fund, for example, seeks to double the indexÂs return.) But over time, daily movements in the underlying index can create losses for those who hold shares over longer periods of time Â„ even if the index rises overall. 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7 CROSSWORD PUZZLE DEAR ABBY HELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY: I am conicted about boundaries being crossed between my family therapist and me. My 7-year-old son and I have been seeing someone we both bonded with and felt comfortable with. That is, until the therapist and I found each other on an online dating site. We matched a few months ago. Once I realized it was him, I felt embarrassed and blocked him on the site. He sent me an email within three minutes acknowledging that he knew it was me. He said he thought I was ÂawesomeÂŽ and that I look better in person than in my pics. I was so embarrassed I didnÂt respond. A couple of months went by and neither of us brought it up. My son invited him to his birthday party and he did attend. It wasnÂt until later that I realized therapists are not supposed to attend social events with patients. We also text often, during late-night hours. A couple of weeks after my sonÂs birthday party he tried matching with me again on the dating site. I was surprised and sent him a text asking him what he was doing. He responded by asking me if I was enjoying it, but did not answer my question. I do have a slight crush on him, but IÂm not sure what his intentions are. I am aware that itÂs unethical. Â„ UNETHICAL CRUSH DEAR UNETHICAL: You are correct that what the therapist has been doing is a breach of professional ethics. There is a reason for it. Patients are extremely vulnerable to manipulation. When the online irtation rst started, you should have changed therapists. Heaven only knows how many other patients he has done this with. My advice is to draw the line, establish a working relationship with another therapist, and decide whether you want to report him to the association that licensed him to practice. You may have a crush on him, but what he is doing is predatory. DEAR ABBY: Common manners are going extinct quicker than the dinosaurs did. I was raised to open doors, stand up for women sitting down at the table, etc. Nowadays opening the door for most women feels like getting slapped in the face. There is no acknowledgment of any kind. Has our society disintegrated that far? These days if I open the door for someone and she doesnÂt acknowledge the courtesy, I say, ÂThank you!ÂŽ loud enough for her to hear and watch the reaction. IÂm waiting for someone to slap me one day. Â„ GOOD MANNERS IN TEXAS DEAR GOOD MANNERS: I agree that when a courtesy is extended, it should be acknowledged. If it isnÂt, shouting at someone is rude and makes you appear more like a petulant boor rather than the genteel individual your parents raised you to be. P.S. When a gentleman opens a door for me Â„ oldfashioned girl that I am Â„ I always thank him. Then I add, ÂYou were raised RIGHT!ÂŽ which is true, and we go our separate ways with a smile.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

First contact the American Moving & Storage Association (www.moving. org). They certify movers to make sure that you are getting a professional operator. Then take these steps: 1. Make sure you fully understand the bid. Get a binding estimate rather than a Âguestimate,ÂŽ where the price might be higher than the quote. 2. Read the ne print carefully, so you know precisely whatÂs included. 3. Consider purchasing extra insurance, if that is an option, in order to have plenty of coverage for potential damages. P.S.: If you can move in the o-season, from around April through September, prices will be lower. Â„ Heloise Dear Heloise: I have just gotten married, and IÂm starting to cook. How many knives do I need in my new kitchen? What kind? Â„ Becky from Illinois Dear Becky: Most cooks know that itÂs important to have a good, sharp knife to take care of kitchen cooking. In fact, you only need three basic knives to do your culinary duties when you begin cooking. You may add more as your skills develop. Here are the basics: 1. A long chefÂs knife will be key for chopping and slicing. 2. A paring knife with a 2to 4-inch blade will be good for peeling vegetables and fruits. 3. A serrated knife is essential for slicing bread. Â„ Heloise Dear Readers: All of us eat drink and eat around our computers, although itÂs not the best idea. And, of course, accidents do happen. If you spill liquid into your keyboard, act quickly. Shut the computer down and disconnect the keyboard. If the liquid is a non-sticky beverage and itÂs not a big amount, turn the keyboard upside down to drain out as much of the liquid as you can. A hair dryer will help to dry out the keyboard, but donÂt hold it too close. Be sure to move the dryer around. Wipe o any leftover moisture with a clean cloth. Â„ Heloise Dear Heloise: My children are tired of the same old breakfast foods. Do you have any ideas for something else I can feed them? Â„ Emily from Connecticut Dear Emily: Yes, I do. For example, you can put cut-up fruit and yogurt in icecream cones, or you can make this crunchy breakfast bread. Mix together 2 lightly beaten eggs, 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter,1/4 cup honey and 2/3 cup of non-fat dry milk powder. Add 3 cups of your childÂs favorite dry, pebble-type cereal.

They fought their way onto a Â“shing boat that had been tied to a palm tree and climbed inside. Morales left his neighbors in a bathroom below the boatÂs deck, while he sat in the captainÂs chair. He said they stayed in the boat for six hours before the winds calmed and the surge receded. ÂI lost everything Â„ my clothes, wallet, credit cards,ÂŽ he said. ÂBut I made it.ÂŽ Bill Shockey, 86, refused when his daughter pleaded with him to leave Mexico Beach. He said he didnÂt want to leave behind his collection of ÂGone with the WindÂŽ dishes and antique dolls. So he stashed those valuables up high in a closet before heading to his daughterÂs newly built two-story home next door. With a pocket full of cigars and his cat named Andy, Shockey watched the hurricane roll in from an upstairs bedroom. The wind shredded the roof of his single-story home. Water rose nearly to the top of his garage door. A neighborÂs home across the street got shoved off its foundation. Was he scared? ÂWorried, I think, is more like it,ÂŽ Shockey said. His daughterÂs home took in some Â”oodwaters downstairs, but was otherwise unscathed. ShockeyÂs own home of 24 years didnÂt fare so well, though his collectibles survived. ÂItÂs a wipe out,ÂŽ he said, adding that he plans to sell his property rather than rebuild. ÂWhenever they want, IÂm going to move in with my son in Georgia.ÂŽ For years, Hal Summers has managed Killer Seafood, a Mexico Beach restaurant known for its tuna tacos. Michael destroyed the eatery as well as SummersÂ townhome on the beach. Summers rode out the storm at his parentÂs house nearby. They had evacuated, but an elderly friend was staying there and Summers promised to watch him. Summers knew they had to get out when, about 30 minutes after the storm made landfall, water surging into the homeÂs kitchen rose up to his neck. He opened the front door and fell in deeper when he tried to step onto front stairs that had washed away. Summers said his parents recently added a large, outdoor bathroom onto their home and he saw the door was open. The large sink was still above the water. He grabbed a bench that was Â”oating by, and shoved it into the open bathroom to give them something to stand on. Then he helped the elderly man inside. ÂI knew we could sit on the sink or we could stand on the sink if we had to,ÂŽ Summers said. ÂI had to hold the door shut or it would just keep Â”ooding. There was a little crack and I could just see everything Â”ying. I thought, ÂOh my God.ÂÂŽ They never had to stand on the bathroom sink. Finally, the Â”ooding receded. While Garcia and his wife survived the hurricaneÂs wrath, he was out Friday searching for his daughter and mother. Kristen Garcia, 32, and her 90-year-old grandmother, Jadwiga Garcia, were staying in a second-Â”oor beachfront apartment Wednesday as the storm came ashore. Garcia said his daughter called him to say the apartment was Â”ooding and they had taken shelter in the bathroom. He hadnÂt seen them in the two days since the storm passed, and hadnÂt been able to gain access to their apartment. He had tears in his eyes recalling their last conversation. ÂShe said, ÂDad, get down here,ÂÂŽ Garcia said. ÂI said, ÂItÂs too late.ÂÂŽFURYFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOPeople drive along a damaged road in the aftermath of hurricane Michael in Mexico Beach, Friday. By TERRY SPENCERASSOCIATED PRESSFORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. Â„ FloridaÂs disjointed property insurance system that relies almost exclusively on small and midsize companies will take a multibillion-dollar loss from Hurricane Michael, but has sufÂ“cient reserves and backups that providers should be able to pay claims without problems, analysts say. Major national players like State Farm, Allstate and Liberty Mutual write few if any homeowners policies in Florida because of the high risk of hurricane losses, leaving the market to smaller companies and the state-created insurer of last resort, Citizens Property. Boston-based Karen Clark & Company, which models catastrophes, estimates Florida private insurers will pay $6 billion in claims for wind and storm surge damage to residential, commercial and industrial properties and vehicles. The estimate doesnÂt include losses covered by the National Flood Insurance Program, which has about 60,000 policies in the hardest-hit Florida counties. The program had no immediate estimate on its losses. Analysts say that, despite their smaller size, Florida insurers should be able to cover their Michael losses through re-insurance Â„ policies insurance companies purchase from global companies like LloydÂs of London to cover catastrophic losses. Most of the stateÂs damage from WednesdayÂs Category 4 storm is in the sparsely populated Panhandle, lessening the Â“nancial blow. Florida insurers Âare built to be able to withstand these types of storms that are expected to happen every 10 to 15 years,ÂŽ according to Brian C. Schneider, a senior director at the analytics Â“rm Fitch Ratings. The company said the reinsurance programs performed well after Hurricane Irma last year, which caused about $50 billion in damages in Florida. But, Schneider said, the industry believes many Florida insurers would not survive if a major storm made a direct hit on Miami, Tampa or another major city. The reinsurance company Swiss Re estimated last year that a Category 5 storm hitting Miami could potentially cost the industry almost $200 billion. The state has about $17 billion in a fund to help private companies pay hurricane claims if they run into trouble. Major insurance companies Â”ed FloridaÂs homeowners market after 1992Âs Category 5 Hurricane Andrew hit south of Miami, destroying much of the city of Homestead and causing $45 billion in damages, adjusted for inÂ”ation. After the companies Â”ed, many property owners could only get policies from Citizens Property and its predecessor, peaking at about 1.5 million policies in 2012. The state, wanting to reduce its exposure, for most of the last 20 years has been enticing smaller, niche companies into the market but required them to obtain re-insurance. The industry was also helped by a 12-year gap between hurricanes hitting the state from 2005 to last year. Their revenue is helped as Florida has the most expensive homeowners insurance in the nation, according to the Insurance Information Institute, with homeowners paying an average annual cost of just under $2,000 in 2015, the latest year available. The push worked as CitizensÂ footprint has shrunk by 72 percent, but remains the stateÂs second-largest property insurer with about 420,000 policies Â„ most of them in South Florida, far from MichaelÂs damage zone.

www.highlandsnewssun.com October 14, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | C34 fall decor tips Â„ that have nothing to do with pumpkinsTHE ASSOCIATED PRESSDriving down a city alley the other day, a Â”ash of fur caught my eye. Nope, it wasnÂt another chimpanzee-sized rat. It was a formerly prized possession: a faux Moroccan Beni Ourainstyle rug, pale and shaggy with a dark diamond pattern, a once-bold accent that had imbued its ownerÂs apartment with of-the-moment style. Until that moment passed. Or the dog had one accident too many. Whatever the reason, all trends must pass, and fall is a time when we look around and reassess the house we are about to cozy up in for the foreseeable future. (When is spring, anyway?) ThatÂs when we notice the artwork we still havenÂt hung, the pillows that arenÂt quite the color they used to be or the rug thatÂs no longer as chic as we thought it was. This is why, DIY decorators, designers wisely advise us against trends: ÂI actually try to steer clear of trends,ÂŽ says Chicago designer Summer Thornton. ÂTheyÂre more likely to look dated in a few years.ÂŽ Still, if youÂre ready for a fall update this year, Thornton and fellow Chicago designer Amy Kartheiser weighed in on some of the fresh ideas that are Â”oating around right now. Try a mellow yellow. Terra cotta is poised to take over from ÂmillennialÂ pink as the color of the moment, but soft yellow might be a better bet for an accent color that looks cool now and has staying power. ÂSure, some colors become wildly overused and popular,ÂŽ says Thornton. ÂBut I think any color can feel fresh if it is used in a new way, because itÂs more about the combination of colors and how they work together than any single color.ÂŽ Yellow can mix with terra cotta or add a spark to blues. ÂI donÂt like bright, sunny yellow,ÂŽ says Kartheiser, Âbut I love golden yellow. ItÂs very warm and cozy, and it also gets into that brass color that you see everywhere. ThereÂs something comforting about it. Everything comes around,ÂŽ says Kartheiser, Âand I just feel that itÂs a color thatÂs come around.ÂŽ Get into (postmodern) shape. Geometric shapes have been a huge design trend for several years, but itÂs time for a twist. The abstract art of the 1980s is inÂ”uencing everything from fabric and wallpaper prints to metal wall sculptures to sofas with curved backs. ÂIÂm pulling elements and inspiration from the late 1800s up through the 1980s and everything in between,ÂŽ says Thornton. ÂI think people are branching out more and pulling from the Â60s, Â70s, and Â80s.ÂŽ Go wallpaper-crazy. And speaking of the Â80s: ÂThe wallpapers of the Â80s are coming back,ÂŽ says Kartheiser. ÂWe had wallpaper in every single room growing up.ÂŽ The design world, she says, has been bringing that idea back, and itÂs catching Â“re. ÂPeople are feeling bolder and more conÂ“dent in their choices, and I always tell clients that itÂs the thing youÂre the most afraid of that you end up loving the most once itÂs installed. ThatÂs what wallpaper and big bold prints do.ÂŽ Our advice? Take the plunge into granny chic with an allover Â”oral. Hang a portrait. Whether you have your own private Louvre or just a carefully chosen piece or two, consider adding a portrait to your mix of artwork. ÂI think thereÂs something about peopleÂs faces that engages you or draws you in,ÂŽ says Kartheiser. ÂThink about Mona Lisa Â„ how many people have talked about that portrait of this woman?ÂŽ The unveiling of the ofÂ“cial portraits of Michelle and Barack Obama earlier this year sparked even more interest in the art form, she says. ÂIÂve always been a huge fan of portraiture,ÂŽ says Thornton. ÂWe have our foyer Â“lled with a mixture of antique and modern portraits from around the world. They bring a sense of history and character to a home.ÂŽ Portraits donÂt need to be family members (in fact, itÂs more fun if theyÂre not), and they donÂt need to be expensive to look good. Vintage portraits, whether photographs or paintings, can often be found in antiques stores or even your nearest thrift shop.

C4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 14, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com To protect pollinators, go easy on the fall garden cleanupBy DEAN FOSDICKThe Associated PressTime to rake up the yard, deadhead the perennials and till the vegetable garden? Not so fast. Popular opinion is swinging toward letting things stay just as they are through winter Â„ decayed and drab but serviceable. Displaying a messy yard may not win any good-neighbor awards, but entomologists say our vital but dwindling insect pollinator populations would be much better off. ÂPeople are increasingly recognizing the value of having good habitat throughout the seasons,ÂŽ said Deborah Landau, a conservation ecologist with the Maryland/D.C. chapter of the Nature Conservancy. ÂSometimes itÂs hard to make the connection with the insects you see in the garden in the warm months with the dried litter remaining when it cools, but itÂs important to keep that structure going through winter,ÂŽ Landau said. Such structure includes standing stalks of dead plants, especially under Â”ower heads, where butterÂ”ies seek shelter. It also includes layers of leaf litter that collect to protect larvae, egg masses, hibernating wild bees, dormant spiders and many other beneÂ“cial insects. ÂCavity-nesting bees may have made their home in old canes of raspberries and perhaps some ornamental grasses,ÂŽ said Rebecca Finneran, a consumer horticulture educator with Michigan State University Extension. ÂThese two items usually are not cleaned up until spring anyway, but they also can be preserved by placing them (upright) in an out-of-the-way location such as behind a compost pile, and the larvae will still hatch. ÂThe main thing is not to destroy the stems,ÂŽ she said. Pollinator cautions aside, which autumn landscape chores are most important, and which can safely be left until spring? Build a priority list. Consider: Â„ Giving your yard at least one last soaking before reeling up the hoses for winter. Â„ Planting a cover crop and adding new perennials including bulbs, trees and shrubs at a time when fall moisture can help establish their root systems. Â„ Removing ailing plants to help with disease control during the upcoming planting season. Â„ Not disturbing bare soil where many wild bee species, including bumblebees, overwinter in small nests. ÂMany of our ground-nesting species will not be bothered by a general cleanup, but I will tell you that I had bumblebees working my late-blooming coral bells up until frost,ÂŽ Finneran said. Â„ Delaying tilling. Put nature to work through winter with earthworms. Â„ Postponing pulling up your summer annuals and chrysanthemums until spring. TheyÂll trap whatever leaves blow by, creating their own enriching mulch while shielding insects. ÂWhat I tell people concerned about how things might look is just clean up in the front yard and let things go in the back,ÂŽ Landau said. ÂRemove any layers of material from the garden that might have fungus in it. But if itÂs simply dead, leave it alone.ÂŽ Brush piles are great wintertime protection for a variety of wildlife species, and the more you can leave them untouched, the better, she said. ÂOtherwise, you might unearth or squash insect larvae. ÂLeave at least a little corner of the property intact,ÂŽ Landau said. ÂAny little bit will help since you have insects living in your garden the year-round.ÂŽ THE ASSOCIATED PRESSThis Sept. 2 photo shows a brush pile taken near Langley, Wash. The pile is an example of a gardener trying to provide wintertime protection for a variety of wildlife species in his yard, including pollinators. 25 CU. FT.

Mortgage rates leap to 7-year highs30-year at 4.90 percentTHE ASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON Â„ Long-term U.S. mortgage rates leaped this week to their highest levels in seven years amid global anxiety over rising interest rates that has gripped Â“nancial markets. Costs for would-be homebuyers are climbing. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday the rate on 30-year, Â“xed-rate mortgages jumped to an average 4.90 percent this week from 4.71 percent last week. ThatÂs the highest level for the benchmark rate since April 2011. A year ago, it stood at 3.91 percent. The average rate on 15-year, Â“xed-rate loans rose to 4.29 percent this week from 4.15 percent last week. The Federal Reserve recently signaled its conÂ“dence in the economy by raising a key interest rate for a third time this year, forecasting another rate hike before yearÂs end. It was the central bankÂs third increase in shortterm interest rates this year, with one more expected before yearÂs end. Strong economic data and a positive outlook from Fed ofÂ“cials have spurred a sell-off in U.S. Treasury bonds, especially longer-term bonds, stoking concerns over even higher interest rates. As anxiety over higher rates spiraled, Â“nancial markets around the world suffered a massive sell-off. U.S. stocks marked their biggest drop since February on Wednesday, as the Dow Jones industrial average slid 831 points. Stocks sank again on Wall Street on Thursday morning. President Donald Trump stepped in to assert that the Fed Âis making a mistakeÂŽ with its rate increases and accused the central bank of having Âgone crazy.ÂŽ Interest rates on Treasury bonds have climbed to the highest levels in seven years as their prices have dropped. The yield on the key 10-year Treasury note, which tends to inÂ”uence mortgage rates, was at 3.16 percent Thursday morning. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnÂt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. The average fee on 30year Â“xed-rate mortgages rose to 0.5 point from 0.4 point last week. The fee on 15-year mortgages also increased to 0.5 point from 0.4 point. The average rate for Â“ve-year adjustable-rate mortgages jumped to 4.07 percent from 4.01 percent last week. The fee was unchanged at 0.3 point. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSThis Wednesday, Oct. 3, Â“le photo shows a home oered for sale in the Atlanta suburb of Roswell, Ga. On Thursday, Oct. 11, Freddie Mac reports on the weekÂs average U.S. mortgage rates. Many mortgage lenders give preferential terms to physiciansBy MORTGAGE PROFESSORJACK GUTTENTAGMortgage lenders offer special deals to doctors Â„ some doctors, anyway. I am a doctor but I am not eligible for any special loan programs because my doctorate is in economics. Economists and others with doctorates in philosophy have no special features that make them attractive as mortgage borrowers. On the other hand, lenders view physicians as especially attractive borrowers, and many lenders court them. Why? Because they have preset career paths with well-deÂ“ned increases in income. For example, the physician whose inquiry stimulated me to write this article told me he was in the Â“nal year of a three-year residency, had signed on for three additional years of subspecialty training during which his income will increase 5 percent per year, and after those three years his income will increase by a factor of Â“ve! This career path, which is typical, makes physicians relatively immune to the market hazards that may threaten the ability of most other borrowers to pay their mortgage. Another attractive feature of physicians as borrowers is that lenders can target physicians and market their services to them well in advance of the physicianÂs need for funds. Are there any other professions that qualify for preferential treatment? Yes but it varies lender to lender. Most if not all lenders who offer special loan programs to physicians extend them to dentists as well. Some will include podiatrists and veterinarians; a smaller number include optometrists, accountants and attorneys. I even found one that covered registered nurses. But none covered economists. One important concession made to physicians is the reduction or elimination of a down payment requirement, without a mortgage insurance requirement. Of some 10 lenders I checked, seven required no down payments on loans up to $650,000 to $750,000 or thereabouts. The other three offered ÂÂ”exibleÂŽ requirements. As a point of comparison, non-physician borrowers who take conventional loans must put 20 percent down to avoid mortgage insurance. Veterans are eligible for no-down payment loans under the VA program, but they pay a guarantee fee. FHA borrowers must put 3 percent down and pay an insurance premium. In addition, the maximum loan amounts available on FHA, VA and conventional loans underwritten by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are signiÂ“cantly lower than those available on physician loans. Another important concession made to physicians is the acceptance of anticipated income in evaluating their ability to pay. On all other mortgage loans, ability to pay is based strictly on past and current income. Anticipated income is not considered because it is viewed as too chancy. But with physicians, the path to future income is so well deÂ“ned that lenders are willing to use it. Are physician loans priced lower? The short answer is that I do not know; they could be priced lower or higher. The 18 lenders who present their physician loan programs on https://www.leveragerx. com/physician-mortgage-loans/ explain their programs in considerable detail, but none of them say anything about prices. Here is how a physician can shop for a physician loan: Â€ You must Â“rst decide the kind of mortgage you want, which may require a little homework on my website,mtgprofessor. com. Â€ Go to the site shown above and identify four or Â“ve lenders that offer the down payment and maximum loan that meets your needs, and verify that they operate in your state. Â€ You must obtain price quotes from all of them on the same day because lenders reset their prices every day. Â€ A price quote includes the interest rate, points and Â“xed-dollar fees. On adjustable rate mortgages, pricing is more complicated and you would do well to read ÂBorrower Guide to Adjustable Rate MortgagesÂŽ on my website.

Many low-cost alternatives can provide high style at an affordable price. Looking to get a luxury look for less? Here are some general tips and cost-saving design hacks to keep in mind. 1. Look for fabric blends. From pillow fabric to area rugs, blends of various materials are often lower in price. 2. Consider indoor/outdoor materials and fabrics. A popular cost-saving designer hack is to use indoor/outdoor area rugs indoors. Typically the rugs are modern in design, long-lasting and a fraction of the cost. 3. Source locally. A large part of the cost of an item may be related to the cost of shipping and handling. Whenever possible, pick up an item in-store. 4. Use mirrors instead of artwork. Mirrors tend to be less expensive than artwork and can be used in pairs or in a series. 5. Go frameless. Instead of using framed artwork, consider gallery-wrapped artwork instead. The pieces are printed canvases that have been wrapped around a wood frame. Gallery-wrapped artwork is typically considerably less expensive than artwork that is framed. 6. Go to sample sales. Sample sales, in which Â”oor models are sold, are a great way to score a great Â“nd at the fraction of the cost of a new item. While the items are sold as-is, they arenÂt really used and in many cases are in like-new condition. 7. Use side tables instead of traditional nightstands. In many instances using night tables will not only save money, but help to create a lighter look in a space.LOOKS | 6C
C6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 14, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Does renting make more sense than buying?By DAWN DELLCONTRIBUTED STORYSome people donÂt think buying a home makes sense. They feel like renting is a smarter move. On the other hand, some people think renting doesnÂt make any sense. For the most part, arguing it one way or another is about as useful as arguing politics or religion Â„ whatever ÂsideÂŽ youÂre on, you have your point of view, feelings, and reasons. But there are also people who are open to debate. If thatÂs you, read on. This will give you some food for thought and help you make up your own mind about whether it makes more sense to buy a home or rent one.At least you have the optionPicture living back in Medieval times. Only a few people are allowed to own land, and youÂre not one of them. You can live on a lordÂs land, but youÂll have to give him a certain percentage of whatever you grow or raise. How do you feel about that? Are you OK with that? Is it fair? Probably not. So, look at it this way: At least now you have the option of buying property. Whether or not you want to exercise that right is your choice. And it is a choice. You can also decide that youÂd rather not own the property you live in. You can certainly still rent from a landlord. (Although they probably wonÂt accept bushels of wheat, baskets of vegetables, or a goat as payment. YouÂll need to somehow convert that to cash money.) But owning property isnÂt for everyone. It comes with responsibilities, risks, and limitations that not everyone is cut out for. Both come with responsibilities, risks, and limitations. Many people who claim renting makes more sense feel that way because: Â€ They feel like values are too high. (Unaffordable.) Â€ They feel like itÂs too risky. (The market could crash. Values could go down.) Â€ They could lose their house (if they lost their job and fell behind on mortgage payments). Â€ ThereÂs a lot of cost to maintain a house. Â€ It will Âtie them down.ÂŽ (They wonÂt be able to move to the coast of Costa Rica and surf for 7 months.) All of those are valid and possibly true reasons for not buying a home. However, renting also comes with responsibilities, risks, and limitations: Â€ Rents arenÂt necessarily more affordable than buying a house, and they can go up over time (and probably wonÂt go down). Conversely, the value of a home you own will most likely go up over time, even if it does go down. Â€ ThereÂs risk that a landlord could not renew a lease and force you to move. Â€ While you arenÂt usually entirely responsible for maintenance, you can be held responsible for things that break or get damaged. You may also be responsible for some upkeep and maintenance costs. Â€ You donÂt have much say in what gets done around the house or apartment. YouÂre at the mercy of a landlord doing something (or allowing you to do something to it). Â€ A lease can tie you down as much, if not more, than owning a house that you can choose to sell or rent out if you want to move at some point. Obviously this isnÂt a complete comparison list of risks, responsibilities, and limitations. There are certainly more we could get into. ItÂs just to make a point, which is whether you buy or rent a home, you will have risks, responsibilities, and limitations placed upon you. The only true solution is to live for free in your childhood home forever and ever Â„ and even that probably isnÂt entirely ÂfreeÂŽ or without responsibilities and limitations. You canÂt live somewhere entirely for free, but what you can do for free is Â“ gure out whether you should buy a place to call home, or rent one instead. Dawn Dell is a Realtor with Heartland Real Estate Corp. in Sebring. METRO CREATIVE IMAGESYou canÂt live somewhere entirely for free, but what you can do for free is Â“ gure out whether you should buy a place to call home, or rent one instead.8. Consider glass instead of wood. Glass tables will be a lower-cost alternative in most instances. 9. Paint. Painting is one of the least expensive ways to add color and help decorate a space. 10. Repurpose. Whenever possible, consider repurposing or reusing an existing item in a creative or unique way.

The Houston Astros held a 3-2 lead over the Boston Red Sox heading into the bottom of the seventh inning.

Â„ McKenzie Milton threw for 296 yards and ran for the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter as No. 10 Central Florida weathered its Â“rst signiÂ“cant test of the season before escaping with a 31-30 victory over Memphis on Saturday. MiltonÂs 7-yard touchdown with 12:14 left completed a comeback for the Knights (6-0, 3-0 American Athletic Conference), who trailed 30-14 with 2:04 left in the Â“rst half. The victory was UCFÂs 19th straight Â„ the nationÂs longest winning streak Â„ but it was by far the toughest game of the season for the Knights, who defeated their Â“rst Â“ve opponents by double-digits. Even in the closing seconds, Memphis (4-3, 1-3) seemed on the way to at least have a chance for a game-winning Â“eld goal as the Tigers moved to the UCF 31. Memphis botched clock management in the Â“nal 30 seconds, getting hit with a motion penalty that required a clock runoff, and then Brady White completed a 9-yard pass to Tony Pollard and the seconds slipped away. Darrell Henderson, who leads the nation in rushing, had 199 yards and a touchdown on the ground on a career-best 31 carries for Memphis. It was the Â“rst meeting since last yearÂs American Athletic Conference championship game, which UCF won 62-55 in double overtime. SaturdayÂs momentum swing for the Knights, who struggled to contain Memphis in the early stages, came in the third quarter. With UCF facing fourth-and-1 at their 29, the Tigers bunched at the line of scrimmage and quickly ran a play. Taj McGowan burst through the initial defense and went 71 yards for a touchdown to cut the Memphis lead to 30-24. That set the stage for MiltonÂs winning score, capping a 74-yard drive.THE TAKEAWAYUCF: Milton, a Heisman Trophy candidate, led the Knights in a game where they struggled at time By BEN BAUGHSPORTS EDITORPitching depth was the mother of necessity. And the lack of it, nine years ago, during weekend tournaments, helped a travel team based in Venice, evolve into the Florida Burn. ÂSeveral years ago, Craig Faulkner and I were coaching a summer league,ÂŽ said Mark Guthrie, a 15-year former Major League Baseball veteran, who along with Faulkner, the Venice High School baseball coach, founded the Florida Burn. ÂA team made up of players from Venice High School. We had a pretty good group. There were some talented incoming freshman and there were some incoming juniors. We had 15 or 16 players and the kids did very well. They entered national tournaments, and weÂre getting to the Â“nal eight and sometimes the Â“nal four, and then we would run out of pitching. If we play eight games in a weekend, it becomes kind of difÂ“cult.ÂŽBuilding a successful foundationThe program has sent a deep volume of players to the professional and collegiate levels, earning a reputation for developing athletes who are fundamentally sound, and possess the necessary attributes to succeed in a Â“ercely competitive environment. The Florida BurnÂs commitment to excellence is so renowned, that theyÂre sought out by those wanting to improve their skills and direct their energies toward reaching the next level. ÂWhen we got into this, we had a lot of other organizations calling our kids, asking them to come play,ÂŽ said Guthrie. ÂWe donÂt recruit kids. We throw out the information for our tryouts, and they show up. If thereÂs someone who has questions about the organization, we can call him, but we donÂt have a recruiter as some organizations do. Ours is just really word-of-mouth. ThatÂs just how weÂve always done it.ÂŽA steady influencePlayers who go through the program, have an opportunity to work with an experienced coaching staff, who themselves enjoyed successful careers at the collegiate and professional levels, providing in-depth and comprehensive instruction. The evolution and marked improvement of the of the student-athletesÂ By TERESA M. WALKERAP SPORTS WRITERNASHVILLE, Tenn. Â„ Jordan Scarlett ran 48 yards for the go-ahead touchdown on the Â“rst play of the fourth quarter, and No. 14 Florida rallied from an 18-point deÂ“cit to beat Vanderbilt 37-27 Saturday in a game marred by a near brawl with both head coaches yelling as each team spilled onto the Â“eld. Southeastern Conference Commissioner Greg Sankey was on hand for a Â“rst-hand view of the incident. An ofÂ“cial held back Florida coach Dan Mullen as he yelled at Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason who was near the GatorsÂ sideline after checking on the Commodore defender whose helmet was knocked off by a hit by linebacker James Houston IV. Both teams spilled onto the Â“eld, drawing unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. The penalty cost the Gators their leading tackler, with Vosean Joseph ejected for his second such penalty of the Â“rst half. Two people escorted an emotional Joseph off the Â“eld. Mullen and Mason hugged each other at midÂ“eld after the game. That overshadowed the Gators (6-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) scoring 24 straight points after By NICOLAS ANILASSOCIATED PRESSKUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia Â„ Gary Woodland birdied the 18th hole for a 5-under 67 to move into a three-way tie for the lead with Marc Leishman and Shubhankar Sharma after three rounds of the CIMB Classic on Saturday. Woodland just missed an eagle putt, while Sharma (66) and Leishman (67) had to settle for pars on the parÂ“ve Â“nal hole. Playing in the last threesome of the day, the leading trio had 54-hole totals of 19-under 197 on the TPC Kuala Lumpur West course. They had a two-stroke lead over Louis Oosthuizen, who moved up the leaderboard with a 65, and Â“rst-round leader Bronson Burgoon (67) in the Â“rst of three U.S. PGA Tour events in Asia. Woodland equaled the course record of 61 on Friday that Justin Thomas shot on his way to winning the event in 2015. The American was again consistent. ÂKind of got a little loose there a little bit on the back nine, maybe ran out of gas a little, but it was nice to Â“nish up with a birdie and get some momentum going into tomorrow,ÂŽ Woodland said. Leishman had an eagle and three birdies on his Â“rst Â“ve holes to be 5 under, but was 1 over on the back nine with bogeys on the 11th and 13th after a birdie on the 10th. ÂHappy with the round, gave myself a good chance tomorrow, so hopefully I can be hot like I was that Â“rst 10 holes today,ÂŽ Leishman said. Sharma has already won in Malaysia this year when he clinched the Maybank Championship in February. ÂGood thing is that IÂve been in this position before so I know what happens and what my mind goes through, so IÂll just try and relax myself as much as possible,ÂŽ Sharma said. ÂThe way IÂm playing, IÂm pretty sure IÂll play well tomorrow as well.ÂŽ Stewart Cink shot 63 for the low round of the day and was four strokes off the lead. Thomas, trying to win the tournament for the third time in four years, had a 69 and was at 12-under, seven behind.

Â„ Victor Hedman, Cedric Paquette and Yanni Gourde had Â“rst-period goals, and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 8-2 Saturday night. Brayden Point scored in both the second and third periods, and Andrei Vasilevskiy had 30 saves for Tampa Bay. Alex Killorn, Nikita Kucherov and J.T. Miller had the other Lightning goals. Tampa Bay, which led the NHL in goals last season, had scored just twice over 125 minutes in its Â“rst two games. Tampa Bay was held scoreless during the Â“nal 159:27 of the 2018 Eastern Conference Final by eventual Stanley Cup champion Washington. Columbus got goals from Josh Anderson and Oliver Bjorkstrand, and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 23 shots. Hedman and Paquette scored before Gourde put the Lightning up 3-0 late in the Â“rst and stopped an 0 for 10 season-opening Tampa Bay power-play slide. Anderson, who beat Tampa BayÂs Dan Girardi to wipeout a potential icing and soon after scored, and Bjorkstrand cut the Blue Jackets deÂ“cit to one in the second. PointÂs goal with 44.6 seconds left in the second made it 4-2. Point and Alex Killorn both had a power-play goal during a four-goal third-period that also saw Kucherov get his Â“rst goal. Miller got Tampa BayÂs fourth power-play goal with two-tenths of second left. NOTES: Julian Green was among a group of U.S. MenÂs National Soccer team players in attendance. They were watching both teams play soccer during a pregame workout when the Blue Jackets had their ball get stuck on an overhanging vent. After players attempted to dislodge it with a pole, a stadium worker retrieved the ball using a portable lift. ... Columbus D Seth Jones, who sprained his knee during the preseason, could be back in two to four weeks. ...

Lightning: Play the fourth of a Â“ve-game homestand Tuesday night against the Carolina Hurricanes. WALTON HEATH, England (AP) Â„ Eddie Pepperell will take a three-shot lead into the Â“nal round of the British Masters after a 1-under 71 Saturday as he looked for his second European Tour title and a likely place in next yearÂs Masters. Pepperell was on 9-under 207 at Walton Heath with fellow Englishman Jordan Smith (70), SwedenÂs Alexander Bjork (68), American Julian Suri (69) and FranceÂs Julien Guerrier (70) tied for second. A victory on Sunday would take Pepperell into the worldÂs top 35 and almost certainly secure a Masters debut in 2019. The top 50 at the end of the year are guaranteed a place in the Â“rst major of the year at Augusta National in April. The 27-year-old Pepperell began the day with a three-shot lead and was four clear when he holed from 14 feet for an eagle on the parÂ“ve 11th, with playing partners Smith and Matt Wallace (73) remarkably doing likewise. Smith also birdied the 12th after Pepperell three-putted and another birdie on the 15th took Smith within two shots of the lead, only for him to immediately drop a shot on the next. Ryder Cup star Tommy Fleetwood was seven shots off the pace after rebounding from a 77 on Friday with a 70, while Ryder Cup teammate and tournament host Justin Rose was another stroke adrift following a 69. A top-two finish on Sunday would see Rose reach the top of the world rankings for the second time this season, the 38-year-old having spent two weeks as No. 1 in September. ÂThat hasnÂt actually been on my mind,ÂŽ Rose said. ÂItÂs going to be tough to get there as IÂve got a lot of points to defend, but IÂve just got to focus on playing well.ÂŽBy JENNA FRYERAP AUTO RACING WRITERTALLADEGA, Ala. Â„ Times were already changing long before Jimmie Johnson strolled through a Las Vegas casino unnoticed, full Â“resuit and all. It was the start of NASCARÂs playoffs and the seven-time champion, wearing a Â”ame-retardant billboard, was surprised that he failed to garner even a quizzical stare. Johnson had already lost LoweÂs, the only sponsor heÂs had at NASCARÂs top level. Now he was just another face in the crowd even though the start of the playoffs were just days away and the most decorated driver of his generation was there to promote. How utterly off-kilter for Johnson. But losing LoweÂs, Â”oundering in a long losing streak during a dismal time at Hendrick Motorsports, going unnoticed in a hotel lobby, none of that compared to what was still to come in this bizarre season for ÂSeven Time.ÂŽ The biggest stunner came this week when team owner Rick Hendrick, after 17 years of babysitting the delicate relationship between Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus, pulled the plug on the longest pairing in NASCAR. Knaus built the No. 48 team around Johnson from scratch. He was atop the pit box for the record-tying seven titles and 81 of JohnsonÂs 83 career Cup victories. The two have been together since bachelorhood, through marriage and now children for both. They were fueled by the chase for eight, the elusive number neither The King of The Intimidator could reach. Their farewell tour begins Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway, and when they part, Johnson still will be tied with Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt Sr. with seven titles. Knaus will be tied with crew chief Dale Inman. If No. 8 ever comes, it will come for one of them, not both. Knaus is moving to the No. 24 team, where he started at Hendrick Motorsports so many years ago building cars for a new guy named Jeff Gordon, to crew chief another fresh-faced young talent in William Byron. Rick Hendrick went to his farm system to pair Johnson with Kevin Meendering, one of those lifelong Hendrick guys who started with the company as a high school part-timer and learned how to be a crew chief. It is the end of an era, indeed. ÂWeÂve lasted longer than the average length of a marriage in the United States. WeÂve worked really hard,ÂŽ Knaus said. So hard they nearly destroyed the relationship on more than one occasion. Johnson and Knaus arenÂt wired the same but have always chased winning. The path each took wasnÂt always orderly and Knaus, so rigid, intense and inÂ”exible, sometimes clashed with JohnsonÂs easygoing demeanor. The louder Knaus yelled, the quieter Johnson became. Hendrick threatened to break them up. Sat them down over milk and cookies because they were acting like children, blaming each other and bickering over their inability to win a championship. They agreed to work as hard on their relationship as they were working on their goals, and it led to title after title and a winning pace not seen in decades. Only now they arenÂt winning anymore, and for a variety of reasons that Johnson and Knaus cannot solely control. Hendrick Motorsports is in a massive rebuild, Chevrolet has lagged behind its competitors this year and JohnsonÂs young teammates donÂt know what they donÂt know so arenÂt in position to take charge of the march out of this mess. ThatÂs how Johnson gets stuck in a 53-race losing streak headed into Sunday. And at some point, Hendrick has no choice but to step in and try something new, anything new, even if it means splitting the greatest combination since Petty and Inman. ÂItÂs not like weÂre trying to kill each other. ThatÂs not where this is,ÂŽ Knaus said. ÂItÂs an opportunity for growth for both of us. In order to be committed in a team-oriented environment for that long, thereÂs a lot of deep digging that you have to get through. ÂAnd weÂve done that, and weÂve put forth the effort and itÂs time right now to do something different. It really is itÂs the right time for the company.ÂŽ So, six more races, thatÂs all these two have got left together, and theyÂd like to make it count. But anything goes these Â“nal six weeks because when itÂs over, nothing will be the same. Knaus will be at the No. 24 trying to mold Byron into the next Johnson or Gordon. Johnson will have a new sponsorship and new face leading his team as Hendrick gives Meendering a chance to be the next Knaus. Until then, they have nothing to lose and every reason to try to snap that losing streak and celebrate one last time in victory lane together. ÂWeÂre Â“erce competitors, we both want to win races, we both want to win championships and we acknowledge the fact that weÂve had a hell of a run,ÂŽ Johnson said. ÂItÂs been a long, amazing run of 17 years. Sometimes change brings new opportunity. Change brings excitement, a new breath of fresh air, a spark. ÂWhatever it might be, that opportunity is now here for us. WeÂve been highly committed to each other, this team and our relationship, but itÂs just to the point where we feel like change is the next step and potentially the next step for our next level of greatness as individuals. It just feels like itÂs time.ÂŽ Pepperell takes 3-shot lead into final round of British MastersTalladega starts final 6-week run for Johnson and Knaus GOLF: British MasterÂs NASCAR: Talladega NHL: Tampa Bay 8, Columbus 2Lightning stop scoring drought, beat Blue Jackets 8-2 AP PHOTOTampa Bay Lightning center Brayden Point celebrates his goal against the Columbus Blue Jackets during the second period of SaturdayÂs game.
The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3 skills and abilities from the time they join the Burn, to when they leave the program, to attend college or play professionally, is a testament to the strong foundation and commitment to the program made by the coaches. ÂWhen I see the people whoÂve joined our group, the coaching staff, guys that are helping out, it doesnÂt surprise me how the players have progressed,ÂŽ said Guthrie. ÂI really believe that once our kids get to play for these guys, it will be the best opportunity they can have, and thatÂs really all you can ask for. I have very good friends on the coaching staff. They do a great job.ÂŽ The Burn has multiple teams competing at multiple levels, with 200 players participating in the program each summer. ÂOur goal is to keep all 200 players happy,ÂŽ said Guthrie. ÂWeÂre very fortunate to have coaches who are on the same page as we are, coaches that have learned the same system weÂve learned and have the same objectives that we do.ÂŽFinding your placeThis fall, the Burn features seven teams, four platinum and three premier teams, and thereÂs a place for every player participating in the program. ÂThere are certain kids that are top level team kids, and there are kids that are third level team kids, and each team provides a different experience,ÂŽ said Guthrie. The Burn has evolved from its nascent stages when they had only one or two teams, showcasing some of the areaÂs best players. Guthrie, has three sons, and each of them played baseball at a different level. ÂIf we have a kid who plays on the third team or the fourth team, and he wants to try and develop himself to get better, thatÂs one thing, and thatÂs great for him,ÂŽ said Guthrie. ÂWe have the platform to do that with the Florida Burn.ÂŽ However, the Burn isnÂt just limited to the gameÂs elite, itÂs for those players who have a passion and enthusiasm for baseball thatÂs palpable. ÂBut if we have a kid who just loves playing the game, maybe heÂs not going to be a high velocity guy or maybe he struggles with certain aspects of the game. But man, he still loves going out there doing it. And if thatÂs what he wants to do, thereÂs a spot for that as well.ÂŽ The evolution process of the players, having the opportunity to watch them develop, is extremely satisfying for the coaches. A number of players have emerged, with a sharp trajectory, rising from the third team as a sophomore, to the second team as a junior and playing with the BurnÂs top team as a senior, said Guthrie. Players whoÂve been cut previously, have returned, and through their hard work and determination have made teams, risen to higher levels and have gone on to play collegiately. ÂSo, thereÂs all different kinds, and when youÂre dealing with a large quantity of kids, you donÂt know where theyÂre all going to end up; itÂs not an exact science,ÂŽ said Guthrie. ÂWe do the best we can, but we donÂt get it 100 percent right. In that respect, itÂs very good for us to have multiple levels of teams and opportunities for everybody to keep playing.ÂŽBuilding bondsThe coaching staff is passionate about what they do, and not only do they derive a great deal of satisfaction from watching the players progress, they develop relationships with the players, providing them with insight and knowledge that goes far beyond the baseball diamond. ÂAs a coach, with the high school kids that I have, in the summer and fall leagues, I will tell them what I think, and try to get them better,ÂŽ said Guthrie. ÂThe problem is that thereÂs so many kids that arenÂt coached by the time they get to the high school level. WeÂre really starting with an open book, ThereÂs a lot to do. ThereÂs a lot for them to learn. The intricacies of the game can make them look like an instinctively better player, ThatÂs what weÂre trying to develop.ÂŽFamily and a fortuitous opportunityGuthrie never envisioned the Burn would grow and Â”ourish into the program that itÂs become. It was in 2004, while recovering from shoulder surgery, that he had an opportunity to help his sons during the baseball season. He hadnÂt had much of a chance to see them play, and began working with a 9-year-old team, that his son Dalton and his friends were playing on. ÂWe just went around the park, and made up a little team, played and did some stuff,ÂŽ said Guthrie. ÂThat team ended up staying together all through their 14-year-old year. We had a lot of professional players end up being on that team. I think there were six professional players and 12 collegiate players on that one 9-year-old team. ThatÂs kind of what started it.ÂŽA different callingThe opportunity to take a year off from Major League Baseball and spend time with his family was an experience Guthrie enjoyed. He would go to spring training with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 2005. ÂThatÂs kind of what started it,ÂŽ said Guthrie. ÂI got my shoulder better. I was a 37 or 38 -year-old pitcher with the Rays. I wasnÂt the right age to be with the Rays. I came back, I was healthy and I was pitching well. I got released halfway through spring training. Lou Piniella called me in, and said, ÂHey, I think you can still play. IÂll make some calls to some other people. IÂll hook you up.ÂÂŽ Guthrie was appreciative of PiniellaÂs gesture, but found great satisfaction in being home with his family and coaching his kids. A member of the 1991 World Series Champions, the Minnesota Twins, Guthrie made the decision to retire after 15 years in the big leagues. The Venice High School graduate, developed a team for his oldest and middle sons, Kevin and Dalton, the Gulf Coast Greyhounds, coaching them until they began high school. It was from this nascent stage the Florida Burn would eventually emerge. Coming home provided Guthrie with an opportunity to stay in touch with the community, allowing him to develop relationships with people through the Burn.Imparting knowledgeThe players he coaches on the Burn are aware of GuthrieÂs Major League Baseball experience, but itÂs the coachesÂ depth of experience, their knowledge and methodologies, and how they can take that information and apply it to improve their game that are critical components. ÂI think if they get an inkling that you donÂt know what youÂre talking about, your 15 year career goes right out the window,ÂŽ said Guthrie. ÂYou have to show them that you do know what youÂre talking about. But you have to show them that you do care about them, and then you go from there. Kids today want answers, reasons for what theyÂre doing.ÂŽ Guthrie isnÂt an overly mechanical teacher, and explains that to his pitchers and hitters as heÂs working with them. ÂYou have to show them how it feels and why it will be successful,ÂŽ said Guthrie. ÂYou have to communicate with each kid differently.ÂŽ Guthrie believes heÂs been successful as a coach because he had to work to survive at the Major League level, taking in every little piece of information. ÂA guy like me, I had to continually talk to people, to try to Â“gure out what they were trying to tell me, and thatÂs what we try to do with the kids,ÂŽ said Guthrie.Preparation for the futureThe Burn is a key variable in preparing the players who participate in the program for baseball at the next level, the challenges theyÂll face, what they can expect, as they navigate through a world thatÂs foreign and at times demanding and difÂ“cult. ÂTheyÂre all different, some take in more than others, some buy in more than others, just like any program,ÂŽ said Guthrie. ÂOur job is to make sure that when they set foot on campus, or wherever they go, they know what theyÂre in for. College baseball is a different world. ItÂs not high school baseball. They have guys who are feeding their families, guys who are getting a stipend for coaching. We try to make sure the kids are ready. We have to be realistic with them, and try to place them in the right places, and thatÂs a difÂ“cult task.ÂŽ The different dynamics endemic to high school baseball are also a critical component, where younger athletes progress from playing on all-star teams, move up the levels, and then Â“nd that only nine of them will be playing on the high school team. ÂSo, the coach becomes the villain for two-thirds of the kids in town, and thatÂs a difÂ“cult pill to swallow for a lot of people, when you have to make those cuts,ÂŽ said Guthrie. ÂThe high school coach is cut and dry, a lot of times when whoÂs playing. The college guy is cut and dry, youÂre either going to play or youÂre not.ÂŽ The Burn plays a key role by encouraging its players, so theyÂre able to Â”ourish in the program, Â“nding the right place, putting them with the right coach and teammates, so they can succeed. ÂWhile we still encourage, we have to be realistic, with what they want to accomplish,ÂŽ said Guthrie. ÂWe try to explain to them in an honest manner, this is what you have to do to get there. ItÂs just the way the game is. Sometimes you have to hear constructive criticism. Other times, you get praised when you accomplish those goals. ThatÂs tough. ThereÂs an art to that, and I think our coaches are pretty good with that.ÂŽBURNFROM PAGE 1By STEPHEN MCKAYSUN CORRESPONDENTWhen the scores from the 2018 Charlotte County Championships were announced at South County Regional Park in Punta Gorda Saturday, there was a huge collective cheer from the Port Charlotte Pirates when they learned they had swept the boys and girls team events. But those were just the Â“nal cheers, as each of the 24 events was highlighted by an ever-present roar streaming from the encouragement of poolside teammates. The Pirates tallied 561 points to take top honors in the girlÂs meet, with Charlotte High scoring 529 and Lemon Bay 326. The Â“nal was razor thin in the boyÂs competition as Port Charlotte edged Lemon Bay 466 to 465 with Charlotte scoring 421. ÂThe kids were excited for it, they came out here with the goal to win,ÂŽ said Pirates coach J.R. Whaley. ÂWe had some really good swims from the upper-level kids. And the new swimmers have made huge strides and that means good things going forward. WeÂve got a few weeks now until districts and this gave us a lot of good information for (districts).ÂŽ Though host Charlotte entered a relatively small squad, which made it difÂ“cult for it to accumulate team points, the FightinÂ Tarpons had a swimmer or diver Â“nish Â“rst in 17 of the 24 events. The Port Charlotte girls won four individual events and the boys one. Evelyn Negrette took the girls 200yard freestyle by better that Â“ve seconds. She also edged teammate Arianna JansonDugan in the 100 butterÂ”y. Daisy Marquardt touched Â“rst in the girlÂs 200 individual medley while Bryanna Robinson was best in the 100 backstroke. Furthermore, the Pirates were boosted in the team competition with depth. In addition to their Â“ve combined event wins, Port Charlotte picked up 14 top-3 Â“nishes. ÂWeÂve been training really hard lately so I think thatÂs really helped my times,ÂŽ said the PiratesÂ Janson-Dugan who earned a personal best in both individual events she swam. ÂWe still have a couple of weeks left before districts, so I think all of us can continue to improve.ÂŽ Janson-Dugan picked up 32 points with a fourth in the 200-yard individual medley in addition to her runner-up in the 100-butterÂ”y. Her brother, Kevin, also had a good day winning the boyÂs 100 freestyle. He was second in the 100 backstroke. The strongest event for the Manta Rays was boyÂs diving. Gage Denson added 20 points to the Lemon Bay overall score by collecting 180 points to win the six-dive event. Denson, a two-time state qualiÂ“er, produced another 17 team points with his runner-up Â“nish in the boyÂs 50 freestyle. Collin McCarty, Hunter Fazler and Victor Fazler rang up 45 points for Lemon Bay in boyÂs diving. Gage McCauley, a freshman at Charlotte High, secured 17 for second. The TarponsÂ Lindsey Akins led the way in girls diving with 168. She topped teammate Kylie McQueenÂs 147.5. ÂI do better when itÂs early in the morning and when I have opponents to dive against,ÂŽ said Akins, a junior. ÂThere arenÂt always divers in other schools so we end up diving against each other. The pressure of having to compete against another school really helps my focus.ÂŽ Like the swimmers, the divers are getting ready for the post season. ÂKylie had her best meet of the season and for Lindsey we toned it down a little bit,ÂŽ said Charlotte dive coach Patti Oaks. ÂToday we were focusing on dives (Lindsey) will need for districts. TodayÂs dives had some lower degrees-of-difÂ“culty that sheÂll need t oget right.ÂŽ For host Port Charlotte, their list of event winners was long. The TarponsÂ girls were Â“rst in four individual events and swept all three relays. The boys were tops in seven individual races while also winning three relays. Their swimming event winners were Karys Nelson (50 freestyle, 100 freestyle), Melody Stelmaszek (500 freestyle) and Vanessa Deel (100 breaststroke). The boys touching Â“rst were James Rose (200 freestyle, 100 butterÂ”y), Dylan Hacker (200 individual medley, 100 breaststroke), Joshua Eaton (50 freestyle, 100 backstroke) and Casey Keller (500 freestyle). ÂWe donÂt have the numbers, so for us to stay as close as we did with about half as many kids is a pretty impressive day,ÂŽ said Port Charlotte coach Jeff Cain. ÂRight now, weÂre gearing up for districts, regionals and states. We practiced this morning before the meet and the team is tired. When we get to the post season, thatÂs when we expect to be at our best.ÂŽPort Charlotte sweeps County Championships SUN PHOTO BY JENNIFER BRUNOPort CharlotteÂs Evelyn Negrette wins the 100 YD ButterÂ”y event on Saturday during the county swim meet. By JACOB HOAGSTAFF WRITERAfter Hurricane Michael became a threat to the Florida panhandle, forcing the cancelation of the FSU cross country invite, local teams had to scramble for a new event. A few teams were able to slide into the Lely Trojan Invitational, an event in which the Charlotte High School girls team took the top spot. Charlotte (50) beat out 19 other schools including Venice (Â“fth place, 165) and Port Charlotte (sixth place, 169). Scoring for the Lady Tarpons were Mackenzie Flowers (6th, 20:53.10), Victoria Simeone (8th, 20:51.41), Hannah Piacitelli (13th, 21:08.98), Aleecia Collins (14th, 21:10.57) and Alexa Roughton (18th, 21:17.91).

On the boysÂ side, the Pirates lead the area teams, Â“nishing seventh out of 24 teams with 195 points. Venice was close behind with 232 points and Charlotte in 18th with 444 points. Competing individually, Lemon BayÂs Jake Perry (20:26.59) Â“nished 110th and teammate Taylor Green (22:25.76)behind him in 157th.

Page 4 SP www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018By JAY COHENAP SPORTS WRITERMILWAUKEE Â„ Justin Turner and the Los Angeles Dodgers know all about performing in the postseason. Backed into a tough spot Saturday, the red-headed slugger delivered once again. Shut down for most of the afternoon, Los Angeles staged another late rally and Turner hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning to lift the Dodgers over the Milwaukee Brewers for a 4-3 victory that evened the NL Championship Series at a game apiece. The high-powered Dodgers had two measly singles off Wade Miley before breaking through against one of baseballÂs best bullpens. After forcing the Brewers to use six relievers in MilwaukeeÂs 6-5 victory Friday night, the NL West champions put that extended look to good use in Game 2, especially against faltering All-Star Jeremy Jeffress. ÂAs long as we have outs left, we know weÂre in the game,ÂŽ Turner said. Milwaukee wasted a terriÂ“c performance by Miley in its Â“rst loss in three weeks, ending a 12-game winning streak that produced free burgers for its fans as part of a promotion by a local restaurant chain. Orlando Arcia and Travis Shaw homered, and Lorenzo Cain robbed David Freese of a two-run drive with a leaping grab over the wall in center Miley pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings in his second career playoff start and had two hits in his Â“rst multihit game since 2014. ÂWe were in really good shape with the effort that Wade gave us,ÂŽ Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. ÂHe pitched beautifully.ÂŽ The best-of-seven series moves to Dodger Stadium for Game 3 on Monday night. Walker Buehler pitches for Los Angeles and Jhoulys Chacin gets the ball for Milwaukee. Miley handed a 2-0 lead over to his bullpen and Shaw tacked on a solo drive in the sixth delighting a yellow towel-waving crowd of 43,905 at Miller Park. But that was the last run for the Brewers, and the Dodgers Â“nished off their rally this time around after nearly taking Game 1. Cody Bellinger got Los Angeles on the board with an RBI single in the seventh, chasing Corbin Burnes and stopping an 0-for-15 slide in the playoffs that landed him on the bench at the start of the game. Austin Barnes forced in another run with a bases-loaded walk off Jeffress, but the righthander escaped when pinch-hitter Yasmani Grandal bounced into a double play. The Dodgers went right back to work in the eighth. Chris Taylor reached on a leadoff single before Turner hit a long drive to left off Jeffress, admiring the ball with his bat pointed toward the sky before rounding the bases and participating in several different celebrations with his giddy teammates on his way to the dugout. Turner bounced back after striking out a career-worst four times in Game 1. ÂIt felt good,ÂŽ Turner said. ÂI knew it was a homer, and itÂs cool to run around the bases and see all your teammates going crazy, jumping up and down waiting for you.ÂŽ Jeffress also struggled in Game 1, allowing two hits while only recording one out. He was charged with two runs and six hits in 3 1/3 innings in three appearances in the Division Series against Colorado, including a blown save in the opener. ÂItÂs intense baseball games, man,ÂŽ Jeffress said. ÂTheyÂre going to be like this for the rest of the postseason. WeÂre going to battle, theyÂre going to battle. Just be ready.ÂŽ Los Angeles has scored eight runs against MilwaukeeÂs bullpen, all in the seventh inning or later. ÂThe more you face the relievers, the easier itÂs going to get,ÂŽ Bellinger said. It was TurnerÂs seventh career playoff homer. He was co-MVP of the NLCS last year with Taylor when Los Angeles made it to the World Series for the Â“rst time since 1988. The Dodgers are making their sixth straight appearance in the playoffs while the upstart Brewers are in the postseason for the Â“rst time since 2011. That advantage in experience seemed to pay off Â„ especially when Turner came up with the big blow. ÂHe personiÂ“es everything that I believe in as a baseball player, as a professional. ... HeÂs the glue for our club,ÂŽ manager Dave Roberts said. Save for Yasiel Puig snapping his bat over his leg after striking out swinging with the bases loaded in the seventh, Los Angeles stayed steady as Milwaukee tried to hold on. Pedro Baez got four outs for the win, and Kenley Jansen worked the ninth for the save. Jansen broke NL MVP-favorite Christian YelichÂs bat for a groundout with a runner on second for the Â“nal out. REMEMBER WHENFormer major league slugger Prince Fielder threw out a ceremonial Â“rst pitch. Fielder said Counsell helped him a lot when they played together in Milwaukee. ÂThere was one time I was thinking about bunting and he told me if I bunt, heÂll punch me in the face,ÂŽ a chuckling Fielder said.UP NEXTChacin had his worst start of the season at Los Angeles on Aug. 2, allowing nine runs, eight earned, and Â“ve hits in 4 1/3 innings in a 21-5 loss. The veteran right-hander is 5-5 with a 4.96 ERA in 12 career starts at Dodger Stadium. Buehler is making his second career start against Milwaukee. The rookie right-hander tossed seven innings of Â“ve-hit ball in a 1-0 loss to the visiting Brewers on July 31. By MARC TOPKINTAMPA BAY TIMESST. PETERSBURG Â„ The RaysÂ primary target this offseason seems to be adding a right-handed impact bat. And to do so, they are likely to get rid of the one they have, 30-homer hitting 1B/DH C.J. Cron. Why? In short, to try to upgrade. And gain some positional versatility. The Rays are in the unusual position of having some Â“nancial Â”exibility, with at least a chance to shop on a higher shelf than usual. Whether that leads to Nelson Cruz, Josh Donaldson or Andrew McCutchen, or someone else similarly intriguing, via free agency or trade, they might as well look around. RELATED: More Rays coverage Cron did well (.253 average, 74 RBIs, .816 OPS, 2.0 WAR) but was not the kind of intimidating presence they could use in the middle of a lineup that still leans to the left, even after the wise addition of Tommy Pham. So rather than commit $5 million plus to Cron, theyÂd seem better served to trade him (having given up minor-league INF Luis Rengifo to get him from the Angels), and probably before the Nov. 30 contract tender deadline, which commits them to his salary. Then they can sort through the market, see what kind of Â“ts are available. At the same time, explore whether itÂs worth trading one of the lefty-hitting outÂ“elders (Mallex Smith most likely). They have the potential for DH and/or Â“rst base to be covered by lefty swingers Ji-Man Choi and Jake Bauers (unless heÂs ticketed for a season-opening Triple-A stint), and other options coming through the minors. And they could look in the spring at Matt Duffy and/or Daniel Robertson at Â“rst, just to see if there are even more options. Cron was good, but they have a chance to do better, and they should take it. Job fair Coach Rocco Baldelli is very much Âa hot nameÂŽ among candidates, as we heard from an MLB exec last week, for several, if not most, of the current six manager openings. HeÂs been reported to have interviewed or at least linked to the Twins (where former Rays hitting coach Derek Shelton is also a candidate), Rangers and Blue Jays. The Angels and Reds are also possibilities; the hot mess Orioles, well, maybe not. Âƒ With senior VP Chaim Bloom interviewing last week for a GM job with the Mets, it wouldnÂt be a surprise to see his name also surface as a strong candidate in San Francisco. TV time With fewer big-name players but more wins, the Rays saw TV ratings drop 9 percent for games on Fox Sports Sun from last year (from 2.70 to 2.45), and about 6,000 households (to 46,000), per Forbes.com. The Rays ranked 20th of the 29 U.S.based teams, and their games were third overall in the Tampa Bay market during primetime and Â“rst on cable. Âƒ The next TV reporter will be the sixth hired in eight seasons, following Laura Rutledge, Kelly Nash, Emily Austen, Alex Corddry and Michelle Margaux, who left to cover the Houston Rockets.Is moving on from C.J. Cron the right move for Rays? TAMPA BAY TIMESC.J. Cron is greeted in the Rays dugout after scoring against the Blue Jays during the sixth inning on Sept. 21, 2018.

Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Â„ Jordan Ellis ran for a touchdown and Virginia kept MiamiÂs high-powered offense from ever getting going. Ellis scored on a 7-yard run in the Â“rst half and Brian Delaney kicked three Â“eld goals for the Cavaliers (4-2, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference). Miami appeared to have stopped Virginia on a third-down run in the Â“nal minutes, but a personal foul call against Tito Odenigbo kept the drive alive and the Cavaliers were able to most of the rest of the clock out. The Hurricanes (5-2, 2-1) scored on an 11-yard run by Malik Rosier with 3:04 left, pulling them to 16-13, but when they tried an onsides kick, Virginia tight end Evan Butts Â“elded it and returned it 30 yards to the Miami 27. The Hurricanes used all three of their timeouts to stop the clock, but OdenigboÂs personal foul after Bryce Perkins was stopped a yard short of a Â“rst down foiled their comeback bid. NO. 13 LSU 36, NO. GEORGIA 6BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) Â„ Joe Burrow passed for 200 yards and had two short touchdown runs, LSUÂs defense staggered GeorgiaÂs normally proliÂ“c offense, and the 13th-ranked Tigers beat the No. 2 Bulldogs 3616 on Saturday to give coach Ed Orgeron a signature victory. Five fourth-down decisions by Orgeron inÂ”uenced the result. LSU converted all four times it ran an offensive play on fourth down, sustaining three drives that produced a total of 13 points. In another instance, Orgeron called timeout and elected to punt on fourthand-2 after the offense initially remained on the Â“eld. That decision pinned Georgia at its 4, and Kristian FultonÂs interception of Jake FrommÂs pass shortly afterward set up another of Cole TracyÂs Â“ve Â“eld goals. Clyde Edwards-Helaire rushed for 133 yards for LSU (6-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference), and Justin Jefferson caught six passes for 108 yards, including a 41-yard snag of a pass riÂ”ed over the middle and between converging defenders. That catch set up BurrowÂs second TD in the fourth quarter. Nick Brossette added a short touchdown in the Â“nal minutes after BurrowÂs 59-yard scamper. Fans rushed the Â“eld, ignoring pleas not to do so from the public address announcer, as the game ended. Fromm had by far his worst game of the season for Georgia (6-1, 4-1), completing 16 of 34 passes for 209 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.IOWA STATE 30, NO. 6 WEST VIRGINIA 14AMES, Iowa (AP) Â„ Freshman Brock Purdy threw for 254 yards and three TDs and Iowa State throttled West Virginia, handing the Mountaineers their Â“rst loss in emphatic fashion. David Montgomery had a career-high 189 yards rushing for the Cyclones (33, 2-2 Big 12), who capped a wild day by beating a Top 25 team for the Â“fth time in seven tries. Iowa State scored 20 straight points after spotting West Virginia (5-1, 3-1) an early touchdown off a turnover. Purdy then found Deshaunte Jones through a pair of defenders on a sprawling 32-yard TD grab that, after a two-point conversion, put Iowa State ahead 28-14 with 12:17 to go. Iowa StateÂs defense dominated the high-Â”ying Mountaineers on a windy and chilly night. West Virginia gained just 152 yards, 420 below its season average.NO. 17 OREGON 30, NO. 7 WASHINGTON 27, OTEUGENE, Ore. (AP) Â„ C.J. Verdell scored on a 6-yard run in overtime and Oregon knocked off Washington. Verdell Â“nished with 111 yards but none were sweeter for the Ducks than the Â“nal 6, when he sprinted nearly untouched on thirdand-goal and set off a wild celebration in the east end zone of Autzen Stadium. The Ducks (5-1, 2-1 Pac12) were fortunate to reach overtime after Washington kicker Peyton Henry missed a 37-yard Â“eld-goal attempt on the Â“nal play of regulation. HenryÂs kick was wide right. Washington (5-2, 3-1) took possession Â“rst in overtime but had to settle for HenryÂs 22-yard kick after stalling inside the 10. The Huskies had a chance to force a long Â“eld goal as Oregon faced third-and-11 after a holding call. But Justin Herbert threw a strike to Dillon Mitchell for 17 yards and the Ducks had Â“rst-and-goal. Three plays later, Verdell sprinted into the end zone. Herbert didnÂt have his best day, playing in front of a large gathering of NFL executives that included Denver Broncos GM John Elway. He was 18 of 32 for 202 yards and two touchdowns.NO. 5 NOTRE DAME 19, PITTSBURGH 14SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Â„ Ian Book threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to Miles Boykin with 5:43 remaining and Notre Dame remained unbeaten. The Fighting Irish are 7-0 for the Â“rst time since 2012, the year they went to the BCS title game. Pitt (3-4) led 14-12 thanks to a long Â“rst-quarter touchdown drive and Maurice FfrenchÂs 99-yard kickoff return to start the second half. Pat NarduzziÂs Panthers were looking to upset an Associated Press top-Â“ve team for the third straight season after knocking off No. 3 Clemson in Death Valley during the 2016 season and No. 2 Miami last November in Pittsburgh. But the Irish, who were held to 80 yards rushing, prevailed behind Book, who is 4-0 as a starter since replacing Brandon Wimbush. Book threw two interceptions, and had 264 yards passing. Kenny Pickett was 19 for 28 for 126 yards, and was sacked by Khalid Kareem Â„ Notre DameÂs only sack of the game Â„ for a loss of 14 yards on PittÂs Â“nal possession to set up a fourth-andlong the Panthers could not convert. Pitt also failed on a fake punt on its second-tolast drive.MICHIGAN STATE 21, NO. 8 PENN STATE 17STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) Â„ Brian Lewerke threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Felton Davis with 19 seconds left to lift Michigan State past Penn State, making it two consecutive seasons that the Spartans used a late score to hand the Nittany Lions a second straight loss. Lewerke completed 25 of 52 passes for 259 yards with an interception and two touchdowns for the Spartans (4-2, 2-1 Big Ten). They were coming off a loss at Northwestern. Davis, who came back from an injury he sustained on the previous drive, Â“nished with eight catches for 100 yards. Miles Sanders ran for 162 yards and a touchdown for the Nittany Lions (4-2, 1-2). Trace McSorley completed 19 of 32 passes for 192 yards with a touchdown to become the programÂs career passing yardage leader.NO. 1 ALABAMA 39, MISSOURI 10TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Â„ Tua Tagovailoa passed for 265 yards and three touchdowns before leaving early in Alabama victory over Missouri. The Crimson Tide (7-0, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) shrugged off another would-be challenger in the league, but got a scare when the star quarterback went down after sliding at the end of a run in the third quarter. Tagovailoa went to the medical tent on the sideline after aggravating a sprained right knee. He was joined by his parents, and Jalen Hurts led the Tide the rest of the way with a big lead over the Tigers (3-3, 0-3). Tagovailoa was playing with a brace on his right knee, sprained last week against Arkansas. Jerry Jeudy gained 147 yards on three catches, including an 81-yard touchdown from Tagovailoa on the gameÂs second play. DeVonta Smith had four catches for 100 yards and a touchdown before leaving with an apparent leg injury after a 57-yard gain in the second quarter.NO. 3 OHIO STATE 30, MINNESOTA 14COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Â„ Dwayne Haskins threw for 412 yards and three touchdowns and Ohio State held off persistent Minnesota. The Buckeyes (7-0, 4-0 Big Ten) needed Blake HaubielÂs two second-half Â“eld goals and HaskinsÂ late touchdown pass from K.J. Hill to put away the Gophers (3-3, 0-3). Hill made the play of the game with a turnaround, one-hand grab that he turned into a touchdown in the second quarter. He had a career-high nine catches for 187 yards. For the second straight week, a heavy underdog came into Ohio Stadium and shut down the BuckeyesÂ running game. The Gophers held tailbacks J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber to a total of 86 yards, without a single carry longer than 11. MinnesotaÂs Mohamed Ibrahim ran 23 times for 157 yards and two scores.NO. 9 TEXAS 23, BAYLOR 17AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Â„ Shane Buechele came on for injured quarterback Sam Ehlinger early in the Â“rst quarter and Texas beat Baylor when the BearsÂ Â“nal pass sailed through the back of the end zone. Charlie Brewer drove the Bears from their own 3 to the Texas 17 before he had to rush his Â“nal three throws under intense pressure. The victory made Texas (6-1, 4-0 Big 12 Conference) bowl eligible. Freshman running back Keaontay Ingram ran for 110 yards, TexasÂ Â“rst 100-yard rushing effort of the season. Defensive end Charles Omenihu had two sacks and was chasing Brewer on the last three plays. Brewer passed for 245 yards and a touchdown for the Bears (4-3, 2-2).NO. 12 MICHIGAN 38, NO. 15 WISCONSIN 13ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Â„ Shea Patterson accounted for 214 yards of offense and a touchdown, leading Michigan past Wisconsin. The Wolverines (6-1, 4-0 Big Ten) beat a ranked conference team for the Â“rst time since topping the Badgers two years ago. They have won six straight games since opening with a loss to Notre Dame. The Badgers (4-2, 2-1) had won a record 17 straight regular season Big Ten games, and 10 consecutive road games in and out of conference play. Patterson, who had an 81yard run, scored on a 7-yard run and connected on a 2-point conversion pass to put Michigan up 21-7 early in the third. Patterson was 14 of 21 for 124 yards and ran for a career-high 90 yards and a score on nine carries.TENNESSEE 30, NO. 21 AUBURN 24AUBURN, Ala. (AP) Â„ Jarrett Guarantano passed for 328 yards and two touchdowns and Tennessee snapped an 11-game Southeastern Conference losing streak. The Volunteers (3-3, 1-2) forced three turnovers from AuburnÂs lackluster offense, intercepting two of Jarrett StidhamÂs passes and getting a strip sack that resulted in touchdown by Alontae Taylor. The Tigers (4-3, 1-3) are off to their worst SEC start since also going 1-3 in 2015.NO. 22 TEXAS A&M 26, SOUTH CAROLINA 23COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Â„ Kellen Mond threw for 353 yards and freshman Seth Small had four Â“eld goals, including the go-ahead kick in the fourth quarter, for Texas A&M. The Aggies (5-2, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) won their third straight this season and moved to 5-0 against the Gamecocks (3-3, 2-3) since joining the league in 2012. Mond also had a 4-yard touchdown pass to Jace Sternberger in the second quarter and, when Small hit a 32-yard Â“eld goal on the AggiesÂ Â“rst drive of the second half to go up 16-0, it looked like more than enough to put away the Gamecocks. But Jake Bentley, returning from a knee injury, led a pair of third-quarter TD drives Â„ and the two-point conversions both times. Vanderbilt jumped out to a 21-3 lead midway through the second quarter. With the comeback, Florida won its Â“fth straight this season. The Gators also beat Vanderbilt (3-4, 0-3) for the Â“fth straight year and 27th time in 28 games in this series. Vanderbilt turned three turnovers into 17 points, and the Commodores also sacked Feleipe Franks twice and stripped him of the ball once. They also intercepted Franks once. Kyle Shurmur threw two touchdowns with his father, New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur, in the stands. Jamauri WakeÂ“eld also ran for a TD. When Florida could hold onto the ball, the Gators simply dominated and outgained Vanderbilt 576-336 in total offense. Scarlett Â“nished with 113 yards rushing, and Lamical Perine added a TD run and 121 yards rushing. Franks threw for 284 yards and two touchdowns. His second, an 11-yarder to Freddie Swain, padded the lead midway through the fourth quarter to seal the comeback.TAKEAWAYSFlorida: The Gators struggled yet again with too many penalties. The costliest came when they left the sideline while Vanderbilt trainers tended to lineman Dare Odeyingbo and coaches started yelling at each other. That unsportsmanlike conduct penalty wound up being the second for Joseph. The linebacker had been flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct on VanderbiltÂs third TD drive for slamming a running back to the ground after the whistle. Vanderbilt: The Commodores start 0-3 in league play for a sixth straight season. It didnÂt help that they lost running back KeÂShawn Vaughn early in the second quarter to an unspecified injury. Vaughn finished with one catch for 75 yards and a TD and he ran seven times for 56 yards before being hurt. POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Gators played sloppily enough with penalties and turnovers that holding their ranking will be good after their escape in Nashville.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Roundup
The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 7By TOM JONESTAMPA BAY TIMESTAMPA Â„ Know what is one of the hardest things in football to do? Well, besides blocking Khalil Mack or getting a decent answer out of Bill Belichick? Looking at an NFL schedule before the season and predicting which games a team will win. ItÂs impossible. Take todayÂs Bucs game in Atlanta. Before the season, this game looked like a thorny proposition. Today? It looks a tad more rosy. Which just goes to show you that picking games in the NFL is risky business. Seriously, you might be better off Â”ipping coins or throwing darts or letting your pet goldÂ“sh pick. ThatÂs because so much changes from week to week. Teams get hot and cold. Weather can play a factor. A great kicker can win a game and a lousy kicker can lose one. A bad call could ruin a good day. Most of all, injuries, especially at key positions, can play havoc with any team. Before the season, it looked like Kansas City was a pushover because it had a kid quarterback. Turns out that kid, Pat Mahomes, is pretty good. Or how about the 49ers? Before the season, they were a scary team because of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. But now? Garoppolo is out for the year and no one is afraid of quarterback C.J. Beathard. Three weeks ago, the Patriots dynasty appeared over. Now itÂs back on track. And so much of a teamÂs success depends on the opponents and catching them at the right or wrong time. See, you just never know what gifts the NFL schedule will give you, and it appears the NFL will give the Bucs another one Sunday after Tampa Bay already has had a couple. The BucsÂ second game of the year was against the defending-champion Eagles. But the Bucs caught a bit of a break by facing backup Nick Foles instead of star Carson Wentz. That was a gift, and the Bucs took advantage. Then came the next week against the Steelers. They were missing all-world running back LeÂVeon Bell. Their locker room had turned into a hot mess because of in-house bellyaching by diva wide receiver Antonio Brown. That was a gift and the Bucs did not take advantage. So now what? The Bucs might be catching another gift this Sunday as the Falcons have injuries to two key stars. Running back Devonta Freeman and defensive tackle Grady Jarrett are both beat up. Maybe theyÂll play, maybe they wonÂt. Either way, they arenÂt 100 percent, and those are gifts a team must take advantage of. Now, to be fair, the Bucs have some injuries, too, especially to their defensive secondary. Nevertheless, for Tampa Bay, this is a huge game. Besides the injuries, the Falcons, even with quarterback Matt Ryan, are not nearly as good as we all thought they would be. At 1-4, theyÂre last in the NFC South and are giving up points like they are the, well, Bucs. That makes this game winnable for Tampa Bay, certainly more winnable than it seemed when we all looked at the schedule before the season. And because itÂs winnable, that makes it critical. Now, look, thereÂs not a ton of difference between 3-2 and 2-3. A loss Sunday doesnÂt snuff out Tampa BayÂs season. But the Bucs need this game. Not just for the standings, but for their psyche. The loss two weeks ago in Chicago was the kind of loss that shakes your core and raises serious doubts about everything youÂre doing. The Bucs were beaten so soundly that you wonder if they can stop anyone or ever win again. So when you consider that and look at the gift the NFL schedule-maker might be giving you, you realize how important this game is. If you canÂt win this game against a beat-up 1-4 team with your starting quarterback Â“nally back in place, which games are you going to win? So who is going to win this game? Flip a coin. But who NEEDS to win this game? The Bucs.SundayÂs game is winnable for Tampa, which makes it critical TAMPA BAY TIMES PHOTOQuarterback Jameis Winston looks to pass during the second half of the BucsÂ loss to the Bears Sept. 30 in Chicago. By BARRY WILNERAP PRO FOOTBALL WRITERThere can be no better measuring stick for the Chiefs and young quarterback Patrick Mahomes than what they face Sunday night. Beat the Patriots in Foxborough and all that excitement in Kansas City might be validated. Remember, though, that the Chiefs, with Alex Smith, went into Gillette Stadium and won the 2017 kickoff to the season. They went on an upand-down ride the rest of the way, lost in the wildcard playoff round, while the Patriots straightened out and made the Super Bowl before losing to Philadelphia. Mahomes, of course, has looked immune to any sort of high-stakes pressure in leading the Chiefs (5-0) to the top of the AFC. He embraces this challenge and trying to outdo Tom Brady. ÂIt is going to be a great opportunity,ÂŽ says Mahomes, who has a league-best 14 touchdown passes. ÂHe is one of the greatest quarterbacks, if not the greatest to ever play. I am going against their defense, but as a team we are going to go in and try to compete. They are a good team in the AFC every single year. Just to compete against one of the best teams in the league is going to be an awesome opportunity.ÂŽ How familiar is Mahomes with three-time league MVP Brady, whom he has never met? ÂI deÂ“nitely watched a good amount of him in college (at Texas Tech),ÂŽ he says. ÂCoach (Kliff) Kingsbury actually played with Tom at one point. He liked to show me some things that he did where he was in the pocket, his pocket movements and things like that. I have deÂ“nitely taken some things from him. He does it at such a high level, itÂs something you have to strive to be like.ÂŽ New England (3-2) is striving to be, well, New England. After a 1-2 start, the Patriots appear to have gotten back on their usual winning path. The weekend began with PhiladelphiaÂs 34-13 road victory over the New York Giants. Carson Wentz threw a season-high three touchdown passes for the Eagles (3-3). They beat the Giants (1-5) for the fourth straight time and seventh in eight games. Off this week are Detroit (2-3) and New Orleans (4-1)Pittsburgh (2-2-1) at Cincinnati (4-1)One of the NFLÂs most vicious and yellow-tinted rivalries As in: Â„These teams combined for four penalties for unnecessary roughness, one for unsportsmanlike conduct, one for taunting, one for roughing the passer, and two 15-yard penalties for grabbing a facemask in their previous meeting. Â„Cincinnati set a club record with 173 yards in penalties in that messy affair, when the Steelers overcame a 17-0 deÂ“cit to win. More numbers of note: Â„The Steelers have won the past six games in this series, nine of 10 and 14 of 17. Â„The Bengals are 8-24 vs. the Steelers under coach Marvin Lewis Â„Lewis is 2-15 at Paul Brown Stadium against Pittsburg. Â„ Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is 244-1 in his native Ohio, including the postseason. HeÂs 13-2 at Paul Brown Stadium with 23 TDs, 10 interceptions. Los Angeles Chargers (3-2) at Cleveland (2-2-1) When last they met in Cleveland, the Browns won in their 15th game to avoid a perfect season on the wrong side of the ledger. So they lost every game in 2017, including at the Chargers. ÂNot to speak too much of last year, but I could not believe and I did not feel like they were an 0-16 team or 0-14, whatever they were when we played them last year,ÂŽ says Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. ÂIt was a good football team. They just did not Â“nd ways to win and so many (games) they had opportunities.ÂŽ TheyÂve got two wins already and lead the NFL with 15 takeaways, two more than in the entire 2017 season.Chicago (3-1) at Miami (3-2)The Bears have won three in a row and come off a bye. They havenÂt earned four straight wins since 2012. With Khalil Mack revitalizing the defense, Chicago ranks No. 1 against the run and second overall. If second-year quarterback Mitch Trubisky truly has found the passing rhythm Â„ his six TD throws in a rout of Tampa Bay tied for second most in an NFL game Â„ the Bears needs to be taken seriously. Miami was taken seriously until it laid eggs at New England and Cincinnati, where it blew a 17-0 lead. The Dolphins rank third worst in yards and Â“fth worst in points. They have been outgained by 94 yards per game, which ranks third worst.Jacksonville (3-2) at Dallas (2-3)Oddly, Dallas has never won its Â“rst three home games at Jerry World. With RB Leonard Fournette still hurt, the showpiece matchup with Ezekiel Elliott disappears. Elliott has been the prime weapon for Dallas and is averaging 154 yards from scrimmage per game in the past three. But the passing game is 30th as Dak Prescott struggles without a topnotch receiver. HeÂll face the stingiest defense in the NFL.Indianapolis (1-4) at New York Jets (2-3)If any team needed the long layoff from a Thursday nighter it was the Colts. They went into New England undermanned and then got hammered with more injuries, giving them little chance against the Patriots. Assuming they are somewhat healthier, this is a far better chance for Indy to straighten out its season. Andrew LuckÂs arm looks strong, but who does he have to throw to if T.Y. Hilton isnÂt in the lineup? New York opened up its offense in a win over Denver, letting Sam Darnold occasionally Â”ing the ball downÂ“eld and it led to some huge plays. The Colts are vulnerable to that. Buffalo (2-3) at Houston (2-3) Each team comes off a tight victory in which the offenses were stagnant, while the defenses and kicking games were decisive. Houston wants things more open when it has the ball, with Deshaun Watson connecting on throws to DeAndre Hopkins. BuffaloÂs solid second-year cornerback TreÂDavious White, will be tested. Apparently fully healthy after two tough years, Texans DE J.J. Watt is tied for the NFL lead with six sacks. Watt had an 80yard interception return for a score in his previous game against the Bills in Houston, a 23-17 win in 2014.Undefeated Chiefs, Mahomes await major test in New England NFL: Preview NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers By GENARO C. ARMASAP SPORTS WRITERJim Taylor, the ferocious Hall of Fame fullback who embodied the Green Bay PackersÂ unstoppable ground game during the Vince Lombardi era and helped the team win four NFL titles and the Â“rst Super Bowl, died Saturday. He was 83. He died unexpectedly at a hospital in his hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the team said. Taylor played on the great Packer teams and was the leagueÂs MVP in 1962. He scored the Â“rst rushing touchdown in Super Bowl history. ÂHe was a gritty, classic player on the Lombardi teams and a key Â“gure of those great championship runs,ÂŽ Packers President Mark Murphy said of the player who left his mark on Âmultiple generations of Packers fans.ÂŽ Taylor was voted into the Hall in 1976. David Baker, president of the Hall, lauded Taylor for not only personifying LombardiÂs Ârun to daylightÂŽ philosophy but for living his life as he played game, with Âpassion, determination and love for all he did.ÂŽ Taylor spent 10 seasons in the NFL after being drafted in the second round out of LSU in 1958. He joined a backÂ“eld that featured Paul Hornung and began to thrive when Lombardi took over in 1959. Lombardi devised the PackersÂ ÂSweep,ÂŽ which featured pulling guards Jerry Kramer and Fuzzy Thurston clearing the path for Taylor or Hornung running around the end. The 6-foot, 216-pound Taylor best fulÂ“lled the playÂs punishing effectiveness, a workhorse always charging forward, dragging wouldbe tacklers along. ÂHe taught me lots of character, and virtues, and principles,ÂŽ Taylor said of Lombardi, with whom he occasionally feuded, in a 2001 interview with the Pro Football Hall of Fame. ÂHe established a caliber of football that he felt like would be championship.ÂŽ In 1960, Taylor ran for 1,101 yards, topping Tony CanadeoÂs franchise mark of 1,052 yards in 1949. It was just the beginning. He Taylor ran for Â“ve straight 1,000-yard seasons from 1960-64 and led the Packers seven consecutive times in rushing. In 1961, Taylor ran for 1,307 yards and scored an NFL-best 15 touchdowns as the Packers rolled to a 37-0 victory over the Giants in Green Bay for LombardiÂs Â“rst title. The next year would be TaylorÂs Â“nest. He ran for 1,474 yards and 19 TDs in 14 games, and scored the only touchdown in the PackersÂ 16-7 victory over the New York Giants for the second of his four titles. Taylor said that season, when Green Bay Â“nished 13-1 in the regular season, stood out for him. ÂBeing voted the MVP of the league in 1962 is something that I look back and cherish,ÂŽ Taylor said. ÂI felt like I accomplished and achieved my goal.ÂŽ Taylor was at his toughest, picking up 85 yards on 31 carries against the vaunted Giants defense featuring linebacker Sam Huff. Taylor sustained a gash to his elbow that required seven stitches at halftime and cut his tongue during the game. ÂIf Taylor went up to get a program, Huff was supposed to hit him. Wherever Taylor went, Huff went with him,ÂŽ Kramer told The Associated Press in 2008. ÂI remember sitting next to Jimmy on the way home and he had his topcoat on. He never took it off. He had it over his shoulder and the guy was shivering almost all the way home. He just got the hell beat out of him that day.ÂŽ That game was one of several that helped launch pro football into the television era, and TaylorÂs contributions to the Packers endured. Taylor, also a member of the 1965 title team, Â“nished his Packers career after the 1966 season as the franchiseÂs all-time leading rusher and held single-season marks for yards and TDs.

After winning five state titles and having several memorable players pass through his gym, each group of players is special for Wheatley, but none can really compare to this yearÂs group. ÂThe thing IÂll probably remember most about this group is that theyÂre kind of like my own kids,ÂŽ he said. ÂTheyÂre all friends with Brooke (Wheatley), so theyÂve all been sleeping over at my house since they were 8 years old. When they first got into high school, we had to train them to say coach Wheatley and not coach Brian. ÂTheyÂve never been scared of me. A lot of groups will come in and be scared to death of me. If anything, I would raise my voice and they would laugh.ÂŽ When his daughter Brooke turned 8 years old, Wheatley decided to give her and her friends a head start on learning the sport of volleyball through his Venetian Bay club team. Originally, the group began with Brooke, Carley Faulkner, Caitlin Montgomery, Sadie Kluner and Sophie Fraser, along with a few others. However, the youngest club teams were 10 years old, and WheatleyÂs group struggled to compete at first. Being so young, only one player on the team could actually serve the ball over the net. Knee pads covered nearly their entire legs, and their spandex fit like basketball shorts, said Wheatley. ÂWe started going to tournaments and we had to play in the 10-and-under group,ÂŽ he said. ÂWe couldnÂt serve the ball over the net, so we had to hope the other team would mess up. So, we didnÂt win a match for the first year, which was fine.ÂŽ Though they lacked the height and power to do much damage on the court, Wheatley adjusted his workouts to fit their needs. Using balloons, tennis balls and trampolines, he did whatever he could to size the game down to a childÂs level. Eventually, in the last game of the groupÂs second season together, it paid off. ÂWe won our first match at the end of the second year, and you would have thought we won the national championship,ÂŽ Wheatley said. While the girls were competing for secondto-last place in a club tournament, Wheatley convinced his team they were playing in the championship round. When they won, he handed out medals to the girls who couldnÂt have been more thrilled. Since that first victory together, the group has kept getting better. With aspirations of one day playing for Venice High, five of the original group stayed with the team all the way to the varsity level. And not only did the girls make varsity, but they also brought home their own state title in 2017. ÂItÂs really crazy because we always thought about being state champions and playing for the varsity team at Venice one day,ÂŽ senior Carley Faulkner said. ÂItÂs really exciting because weÂve all become each otherÂs best friends and we all hang out outside of volleyball. They definitely mean a lot to me, IÂm gonna have to visit them when I go off to school.ÂŽ Over the years, the girls became close. From playing volleyball together nearly year-round to traveling across the country to play in tournaments, the girls of Venice volleyball have become like a second family. ÂIÂve been with them for so long,ÂŽ Brooke Wheatley said. ÂItÂs weird to think about, that I wonÂt be playing volleyball at all, or playing with them. So IÂm just enjoying the moment.ÂŽ While this yearÂs senior group of Venice girls volleyball players have accomplished much since first coming together as 8-year-olds, their time together isnÂt over just yet. Though the regular season is finished and the Indians already honored their seniors at the TeePee, the most important stretch of the season is about to begin for Venice. ÂIt was emotional, but what Wheatley told us was that itÂs not the last time we play in that gym,ÂŽ Fraser said of ThursdayÂs senior night. ÂItÂs just our last time playing there in the pre-season. Playoffs is our real season, and now itÂs time to go.ÂŽ Coming off a 20-5 regular season and an undefeated run through 8A District-11, Venice has earned a bye for the first round of the district tournament. But when Tuesday comes around, the Indians, who will host the winner of Braden River vs. Sarasota, will begin their final run together Â„ with their eyes on the ultimate prize. ÂReally my goal for that whole group was that I just wanted them to have a good high school experience,ÂŽ Wheatley said. ÂThereÂs a lot of different facets of high school, but I wanted that part to be as good as it could possibly be. WeÂre not done this year, weÂve still got some work to do. Hopefully we play loose and go for it.ÂŽVolleyball seniors ready for one last run SUN PHOTO BY JUSTIN FENNELLThe 10 Venice volleyball seniors and their parents were honored before Thursday nightÂs senior night game against top-ranked Oviedo at the TeePee.

BUSINESS/CLASSIFIEDS/ REAL ESTATE AVON PARK Â• LAKE PLACID Â• SEBRINGSECTION DSunday, October 14, 2018When a student debt becomes a lot of troubleStories about student loan borrowers with six-Â“gure debt loads might shock us, intrigue us or appeal to our deep-seated sense of Â“nancial schadenfreude. But borrowers with very high balances, for the most part, are not the ones to worry about. Those who owe less than $5,000 are. ThatÂs because theyÂre most likely to fall behind. Almost a third of them who began repayment between August 2011 and August 2012 defaulted within four years, according to an analysis by the Urban Institute, a nonproÂ“t research organization. Just 15 percent of borrowers who owed $35,000 or more defaulted on the same timeline. Borrowers with a small amount of student debt are more likely to have left school without degrees, affecting their employment options, earnings and ability to repay. Attending for-proÂ“t schools with poor job placement rates and having other, non-student debt to manage also put borrowers at risk. Simply keeping your student loan balance low isnÂt a defense against default. All your education-related choices Â„ what school you go to, what you study, what you do after graduation Â„ affect whether youÂll get those loans off your back. HereÂs how to keep a little debt from turning into a lot of trouble.Choose a school carefullyDefaulting on student debt means youÂve missed nine months of payments on federal loans Â„ often fewer than that for private loans. Avoid default at all costs. It can wreck your credit and, for federal loans, lead to withheld paychecks, Social Security checks and tax refunds. With poor credit, youÂll have a harder time qualifying for a mortgage or auto loan; you may even have to pay a deposit to set up utilities in your home. One of the biggest steps in achieving the Â“nancial stability needed to avoid default is simply to graduate Â„ and your chances of graduating are much worse if you go to a for-proÂ“t school. Compared with students at twoand four-year public and private colleges, those at for-proÂ“ts are the least likely to get a degree within six years, and they earn the least 10 years after starting school, according to an analysis ASK BRIANNA Brianna Mcgurra Women business owners find ways to deal with gender biasBy JOYCE M. ROSENBERGTHE ASSOCIATED PRESSNEW YORK Â„ It can be subtle, like failing to make eye contact with a woman business owner but engaging in animated conversation with her male co-owner. Or more blatant, like asking an owner whoÂs seeking investor money if she plans to have children. Many women business owners say theyÂve encountered gender discrimination from potential investors, customers and employees who donÂt grasp the reality that a woman can be a CEO, trial attorney or own a technology company. Many women are taken aback at Â“rst and donÂt know how to respond to comments or behavior they Â“nd insulting, intrusive and demeaning. But over time, they Â“nd strategies to deal with bias. When Amanda Bradford speaks at technology conferences and forums, discussing coding and algorithms, some men tell her afterward, Âthis is something I didnÂt expect when you opened your mouth.ÂŽ They assume that because sheÂs a woman, sheÂs the marketer, not the inventor of The League, a dating app. When Bradford sought funding for her San Francisco-based company, ÂI often felt like I didnÂt get the credit for having the technical experience,ÂŽ she says. Women business owners are not immune from the gender discrimination that is continually in the news Â„ even as itÂs more and more likely a customer or potential investor will Â“nd themselves speaking to a woman if they want to see the boss. The number of women-owned businesses in the U.S. has grown to more than 10 million from 5.4 million in 1997. Susan Duffy, executive director of the Center for WomenÂs entrepreneurial Leadership at Babson College, says that while women owners are more visible and accepted than decades ago, Âsomeone still assumes that if youÂre the CEO youÂre the white guy in the suit or the white guy in the hoodie.ÂŽ Potential customers or investors often assume that Gabby Slome and Alex Douzet, two of the co-founders of dog food manufacturer Ollie, are married.

Potential customers or investors often assume that Slome and Alex Douzet, two of the co-founders of dog food manufacturer Ollie, are married. Outsiders canÂt seem to get their minds around the fact that Slome, whoÂs married to someone else, could be running a business without her husband, or without him bankrolling her.

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTSBy The Associated PressHigher rates both a sign of US economic might and risk to itWASHINGTON Â„ This weekÂs dizzying sell-offs in the Â“nancial markets have been a rude reminder that the U.S. economy is no longer relying on ultra-low interest rates to fuel growth. Borrowing costs are starting to climb for companies, homebuyers and the U.S. government Â„ all of which could eventually dampen economic growth.Trump steps up his attacks on Federal ReserveÂs rate hikesWASHINGTON Â„ President Donald Trump on Thursday escalated his attack on the Federal ReserveÂs interest rate increases, asserting that Âthe Fed is out of controlÂŽ and blaming it for this weekÂs plunge in stock prices. ÂItÂs a correction that I think is caused by the Federal Reserve with interest rates,ÂŽ Trump replied when asked by reporters in the Oval OfÂ“ce about the stock market swoon.Can earnings season come to the rescue for stocks?NEW YORK Â„ Earnings season is about to ramp up, and investors hope another round of big numbers will pull the market out of its recent swoon. ThatÂs what happened this spring, but many companies have already warned that proÂ“t expectations may be too high this time around.AP Exclusive: Tests show toxin in chain storesÂ jewelryLOS ANGELES Â„ Some national retailers say theyÂre making changes after testing found a toxic metal in jewelry on their storesÂ shelves. Analysis done for the nonproÂ“t Center for Environmental Health revealed cadmium in products sold by Ross, Nordstrom Rack and Papaya. The precise health risk from the jewelry is unclear, but extended exposure to cadmium can cause cancer and reproductive harm. Most of the tainted items were sold at Ross. The retailer says it has addressed the issue with its supplier.Mortgage rates leap to 7-year highs; 30-year at 4.90 percentWASHINGTON Â„ Long-term U.S. mortgage rates leaped this week to their highest levels in seven years amid global anxiety over rising interest rates that has gripped Â“nancial markets. Costs for would-be homebuyers are climbing. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac says the rate on 30-year, Â“xedrate mortgages jumped to an average 4.90 percent from 4.71 percent last week. ThatÂs the highest level for the benchmark rate since April 2011. The rate on 15-year, Â“xed-rate loans rose to 4.29 percent from 4.15 percent.Facebook says it purged more than 800 spam accounts, pagesNEW YORK Â„ Facebook says it has purged more than 800 U.S. pages and accounts for spamming users with garbage links and clickbait. Facebook accuses their backers of Âcoordinated inauthentic behaviorÂŽ for setting up networks of pages and accounts designed to mislead users about who they are and what theyÂre doing.Risk of streaming fatigue as Walmart, AT&T, Disney join frayNEW YORK (AP) Â„ As Walmart, AT&T and Disney join stalwarts such as NetÂ”ix in streaming video and creating original shows, the plethora of new services creates a risk for streaming fatigue. Walmart said it is partnering with MGM to create original content for its video-on-demand service Vudu. On Wednesday, AT&T announced it would create its own streaming service centered on HBO and Turner content and libraries and its other properties. And Disney is set to launch its own service late next year.Shareholders must vote on MuskÂs return as Tesla chairmanIf Tesla CEO Elon Musk wants to return as How not to inherit momÂs timeshareTimeshare owners James and Barbara Ruh enjoy their annual vacations in Hawaii, but they donÂt want their daughters to be obligated to take over the contracts when they die. So the Ruhs, who are attorneys with ofÂ“ces in Santa Barbara, California, and Edwards, Colorado, created a trust to hold their timeshare interests. The daughters, who are co-trustees with their parents, can keep the timeshares, sell them or abandon them after the parentsÂ deaths, Barbara Ruh says. The trust is designed to prevent the timeshare resort developer from going after their daughters for any unpaid or ongoing costs. ÂIf our daughters do not want the timeshares, they will not be liable individually for any fees,ÂŽ Ruh says. Timeshare experts say itÂs usually not necessary to create a trust, with its attendant hassles and expense, to avoid inheriting a parentÂs vacation ownership. Families have a variety of options to assure nobodyÂs getting an obligation they donÂt want. For those who donÂt know, timeshares are a way to use vacation property for a week each year. Traditionally timeshares included a real estate deed, but now theyÂre commonly sold as a Âright to useÂŽ contract ÂthatÂs more like a gym membership,ÂŽ says timeshare attorney Michael Finn of Largo, Florida. In addition to the upfront cost of buying, owners must pay annual maintenance fees, which currently average about $900 but can total $3,000 or more for higher-end properties. Owners may also face special assessments to cover repairs or damage from natural disasters. Since timeshare contracts typically include Âin perpetuityÂŽ clauses, owners can be on the hook for these fees for life Â„ and the obligation to pay passes to anyone who inherits the contracts at the ownerÂs death. The good news: No one has to inherit an unwanted timeshare. ÂTimeshare companies sometimes assert they will chase offspring and heirs for debts, (but) I have never heard even one anecdotal story of this happening,ÂŽ says Jeff Weir, chief correspondent for RedWeek, a timeshare rental and resale site. Here are three important things to know:1.Timeshares donÂt have to be for lifeIf itÂs clear none of the kids wants the timeshare, owners may be able to sell or give away their interest before death, assuming any Â“nancing used to purchase it has been paid off. (See my previous column, ÂHow to Get Rid of a Timeshare .ÂŽ) In some cases, owners who are too frail or poor to travel have had success simply asking the resort to take back their timeshares, says Brian Rogers, owner of Timeshare Users Group, a forum for timeshare owners. If the resort refuses, the owner can abandon the timeshare, although that may lead to collection actions and damage NERD WALLET Liz Weston DEBT | 2D BIAS | 2D INHERIT | 3D HIGHLIGHTS | 3D

Almost half of students who started attending for-proÂ“ts in 2004 defaulted on their student loans within 12 years, according to a report from the Brookings Institution, a nonproÂ“t public policy organization. When researching colleges, use resources like the U.S. Department of EducationÂs College Scorecard to view graduation rates and average salary after attending. Steer clear of schools that arenÂt forthcoming about whether theyÂre accredited or licensed to operate, pressure you to enroll, or advise you to take out private student loans or borrow up to the full cost of attendance without sharing other options.TIE YOUR DEBT LOAD TO YOUR MAJORYour chosen major will also affect how much money you earn. Make sure the school and the speciÂ“c program of study will prepare you for a well-paying job in your industry. Ask students and alumni at the schools youÂre considering how much job-search support they received. Finally, borrow the least amount you can manage while still covering your expenses while in school. Dropping out due to Â“nancial stress can also hurt your chances of getting a stable job. The Bureau of Labor StatisticsÂ Occupational Outlook Handbook is a good place to start researching your likely salary after graduation. Use that expected salary to determine how much to borrow. An affordable monthly loan payment is 10 percent or less of your after-tax income once you start working.

ÂThey think, he must have funded me. They donÂt understand that IÂm doing this independently of him,ÂŽ says Slome, whose two-year-old company is based in Manhattan. Slome has learned to turn an uncomfortable moment into a pitch about Douzet and herself. ÂI tell them, we met because of shared business interests, and our joint abilities and skill sets make us good business partners,ÂŽ she says.

SheÂs also been in meetings where she wasnÂt given the chance to speak. For a while, she was silent. But as time went on, she realized that she has the right to speak. ÂI have more power. I have a voice now. I can actually say, ÂthatÂs not OK,ÂÂŽ Strebel says.

Try bothBy JOSH BOAKTHE ASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON Â„ This weekÂs dizzying sell-offs in the Â“nancial markets have been a rude reminder that the U.S. economy is no longer relying on ultra-low interest rates to fuel growth. Borrowing costs are rising for companies, homebuyers and the U.S. government Â„ all of which could eventually dampen economic growth. Yet the climb in interest rates also reÂ”ects an economy thatÂs still managing to accelerate on the energy of an expansion in its 10th year Â„ the second-longest such streak on record. The pace of growth has picked up this year in part because of President Donald TrumpÂs tax cuts, which have also increased the federal budget deÂ“cit and contributed to the higher rates now spreading through the economy. For the moment, Trump is content to blame the Federal Reserve and its gradual rate hikes for the stock market fall. On Thursday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average tumbled 2.1 percent Â„ or 546 points, after having sunk 831 points on Wednesday. Fed ofÂ“cials last month raised its key short-term rate for the third time this year, and a fourth hike is likely before yearÂs end. Jerome Powell, whom Trump elevated to the FedÂs chairmanship, is trying to keep inÂ”ation in check and unwind the central bankÂs programs that were launched to rescue the economy after the 2008 Â“nancial crisis. Much of the FedÂs efforts after the crisis depended on keeping borrowing rates, for consumers and businesses, at record lows for seven years. But Trump now sees the FedÂs gradual return of rates to normal levels as disrupting the stock market and an economic boom that he argues would otherwise endure for many years. ÂI think the Fed is out of control,ÂŽ the president told reporters Thursday. ÂI think the Fed is far too stringent, and theyÂre making a mistake and itÂs not right. Despite that, weÂre doing very well, but itÂs not necessary in my opinion. And I think I know about it better than they do.ÂŽ Economists generally view the recent rate increases as a natural response to improved growth. The unemployment rate has reached a 49-year low of 3.7 percent. Most private forecasts expect the economy to expand roughly 3 percent this year, up from 2.3 percent a year ago. Against that backdrop, a rise in borrowing rates may not be cause for alarm. ÂHigher interest rates need not be a threat Â„ they can and should be taken as a sign of economic strength,ÂŽ said Carl Tannenbaum, chief economist for Northern Trust. With growth accelerating, demand for credit typically also increases. And that additional demand for debt generally causes borrowing rates to climb. Some of that greater demand has come from the federal government as the budget deÂ“cit has jumped $232 billion so far this Â“scal year, largely on the need to Â“nance the presidentÂs tax cuts. The rate charged on 10-year U.S. Treasury notes has surged from 2.46 percent at the start of 2018 to nearly 3.16 percent. ÂThe big difference between now and a year ago is tax reform,ÂŽ Tannenbaum said. ÂWe all anticipated it would have a very powerful shortterm impact on economic activity.ÂŽ But faster growth can produce some pain for the stock market and homebuyers as rates adjust upward. Should rates surge too much, they could trigger a recession as companies and consumers struggle to repay debt. For now, most economists foresee no downturn in the near future. The Fed is trying to steer growth forward while avoiding an acceleration in inÂ”ation. But by raising its short-term rates, itÂs restricting a pool of credit that has bolstered the multi-year stock rally. The resulting higher rates have led many investors to unload shares. Over the past week, U.S. and global markets have sold off at a speed that has jolted market watchers. The presidentÂs escalating series of tariffs against imports from China are contributing to the concerns. ÂIn the past few days, a handful of companies exposed to trade with China have discussed how the tariffs are starting to adversely impact their business through both higher costs and slower demand,ÂŽ Mark Haefele, chief investment ofÂ“cer at UBS Global Wealth Management, said in a note to clients. TrumpÂs top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, tried Thursday to ease concerns about the tariffs by saying the administration is having discussions for a meeting between Trump and President Xi Jinping of China at the upcoming G-20 summit in Argentina. Stocks are far from the only market being hurt by higher interest rates. Homebuyers also stand to feel some pain. The average 30-year Â“xed rate mortgage jumped this week to 4.9 percent, the highest level in seven years, according to mortgage buyer Freddie Mac. Higher rates increase the costs for would-be homebuyers and could stymie home sales, which could also depress consumer spending. Sales of existing homes have already tumbled 1.5 percent in the past 12 months, according to the National Association of Realtors. Danielle Hale, chief economist at realtor.com, predicted that average rates will reach 5 percent and said Â“rst-time buyers might pull back from the market. ÂThey might have to pause and reassess, and it might impact their budget enough that they step out of the housing market and wait and save more money for a down payment,ÂŽ Hale said. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSTrader Peter Tuchman works on the Â”oor of the New York Stock Exchange. The marketÂs recent decline was set o by a sharp drop in bond prices and a corresponding increase in yields last week and early this week. ÂHigher interest rates need not be a threat Â„ they can and should be taken as a sign of economic strength,ÂŽCarl Tannenbaum, chief economist for Northern Trust.

www.highlandsnewssun.com October 14, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | D3Single mom masterminds $700K swing from debt to savingsBy KEVIN VOIGTNERDWALLETWhen Takiia Anderson graduated from Boston College Law School in 1999, she was a single mom with a 2-yearold child, nearly $100,000 in student loans and a new job as a government attorney that paid $34,102 a year. She didnÂt like that math. ÂPeople are talking about 20 years to pay off a student loan, and my daughter is going to college in 16 years,ÂŽ recalls Anderson, now 47 and based in Atlanta. ÂI didnÂt want to be in a situation where IÂm helping her pay for college while IÂm still paying my student loan.ÂŽ Today, AndersonÂs student debt is long gone. She has nearly $500,000 in retirement savings, and her daughter, Taje Perkins, Â“nished her third year at Spelman College in Atlanta with no student loans to cover its nearly $30,000 per year in tuition and fees. How did she do it? She set a series of targets and kept a laser-like focus on them that, even though she later became a high-earner and has ridden a surging stock market, can serve as a lesson to others today. ÂAny time I got a raise, a bonus or a tax refund, I put it toward my debt, my daughterÂs education savings and then retirement,ÂŽ Anderson says.Tough choice: save for retirement or college?Many Â“nancial advisers would advise Â”ipping those last two priorities: ÂThe same way that airplane announcements tell us parents should put on their own oxygen masks before assisting their children, parents should prioritize saving for retirement and putting themselves in a good Â“nancial position before saving for their childrenÂs education,ÂŽ says Paul R. Ruedi, CEO of Ruedi Wealth Management in Plano, Texas. Yet more parents like Anderson are prioritizing saving for college over retirement Â„ 56 percent are doing the former vs. 54 percent the latter, according to a recent survey by Sallie Mae one of the nationÂs largest student loan lenders. ÂAlthough college wasnÂt as expensive when I went in 1989, I know what itÂs like not to have to pay those bills, and thatÂs what I wanted for her,ÂŽ says Anderson, a Howard University graduate.Tackling her big debt firstAnderson attacked her student loan debt Â“rst with single-minded determination. ÂWe didnÂt have cable. No internet,ÂŽ she recalls, adding that instead they watched old or borrowed DVDs and VHS tapes. ÂI was literally living in overdraft protection. But I was paying my bills on time. I drove the same car for 12 years, cooked at home and packed lunches.ÂŽ As her salary increased and she was promoted to roles with the U.S. Department of Labor in Maryland, Philadelphia and Atlanta, she pumped more cash toward her debt. ÂEven when I was making low six Â“gures, I was renting $1,200 apartments Â„ a lot of money for some people, but much less than I could afford,ÂŽ she says. In the end, Anderson was able to pay off her $100,000 in debt in nine years rather than 20.College saving: from $135 in change to $12k a yearAnderson began saving for her daughterÂs education when Taje was 3 years old. She started small. Following advice she heard on ÂOprah,ÂŽ Anderson paid for daily expenses in cash and at the end of each day threw change in a drawer. After one year, she had $135 that she used to open a savings account for Taje. She later rolled that into a 529 college savings plan and began contributing $50 a month. Once Anderson paid off her student loans and credit cards in 2008, she began saving $12,000 a year toward her daughterÂs education. By the time Taje started college, Anderson had saved $56,000 and added another $22,000 during her Â“rst years. But to do so, Anderson quit contributing to her government retirement plan for two years Â„ a move most Â“nancial advisers would caution against. ÂFortunately, the two years I didnÂt contribute to my retirement plan was during the Â“nancial crisis,ÂŽ she says. In 2010, she resumed contributing to her employer-sponsored retirement plan up to the legal limit Â„ $16,500 a year at that time Â„ Âto catch up,ÂŽ she says. AndersonÂs max contributions have aligned nicely with the current nine-year bull market, in which the S&P 500 index has seen annualized returns of about 10 percent.Debt-free means more life choiceSome might view AndersonÂs story as one of sacriÂ“ce, but she believes that aggressively paying down her debt has brought her freedom, like the opportunity to choose early retirement this year after working 20 years with the government. Anderson has $15,000 in emergency savings, owns a home and is doing contract legal work to keep earning some money. She also writes a personal Â“nance blog, ÂThe Frugal Biddy.ÂŽ Her daughter has begun her last year in college, and she will be taking over payments from her mother and getting student loans to Â“nish her degree. Dedicating Â“ve or 10 years of a career to pay down debt Âmay seem to some that they are losing their life, but what they donÂt realize is how much they gain,ÂŽ says Anderson.

Resorts are unlikely to sue elderly customers over abandoned, paid-off timeshares, Rogers says, and many older owners donÂt care what happens to their credit anyway.2. The kidsÂ names should not be on the deedTimeshare salespeople may encourage putting heirsÂ names on the deed as a ÂconvenienceÂŽ to make it easier for an ownerÂs children to use the property on their own, Finn says. What this actually does is trap the kids into inheriting the timeshare. Parents who fell for this gambit can ask the resort developer to remove those names from the deed, and the developer likely will comply if thereÂs no loan outstanding against the timeshare, he says. Another tip: The kids shouldnÂt ever pay the maintenance fees directly, even if theyÂre handling the rest of the parentÂs Â“nances. Those fees should always come from the parentÂs bank account, Finn says.3. Heirs can disclaim the timeshareIf the timeshare is the Âright to useÂŽ type, the heirs should direct the executor to inform the resort that the owner died, so the resort can take steps to take back the timeshare, Finn says. If the timeshare has a real estate deed or thereÂs a speciÂ“c bequest in the ownerÂs will Â„ ÂI give my timeshare to my daughters Sally and Simone,ÂŽ for example Â„ Finn recommends the heirs Â“le a written disclaimer of interest with the probate court handling their parentsÂ estate. ÂYouÂre letting everybody know, ÂI do not have or want any interest in this property. If I ever did have any, I am disclaiming any interest now,ÂÂŽ Finn says.

Envisioning an even tougher struggle than in recent years, many companies are taking steps theyÂve not tried before in trying to recruit seasonal workers.Trump signs bills to help patients stop overpaying for drugsWASHINGTON (AP) Â„ President Donald Trump has signed into law two bills that would allow pharmacists to tell consumers when paying cash would be cheaper than using insurance for their prescriptions. Under bipartisan legislation he signed Wednesday, health plans or middlemen can no longer prohibit pharmacists from telling customers when they would be better off not using their insurance plans. Trump complained that drug prices are Âway out of whackÂŽ and Âway too high.ÂŽSpark it up, eh!

Stock market experts say this is a stumble, not a plungeBy SARAH SKIDMORE SELL and ALEX VEIGATHE ASSOCIATED PRESSWoah, what was that? After months of relative calm, Wall Street has been jolted by a sudden run of turbulent trading. The swoon wiped more than 1,300 points from the Dow Jones Industrial Average over two days and dragged the benchmark S&P 500 index down more than 5 percent. The VIX index, which measures how worried traders are about a decline in stocks, climbed Thursday to its highest level since February, when the S&P last had a correction, or a 10 percent drop. What now? Experts say this new eruption of market volatility should not be surprising, especially after the long stretch of relative calm investors have enjoyed. Over the summer, traders set aside worries about the escalating U.S.-China trade dispute and instead focused on more encouraging developments: solid economic growth and record corporate earnings. It helped that stocks were on the rise Â„ the S&P 500 hit an all-time high just four weeks ago. So after several months of gains, a pullback would be expected, said John Lynch, chief investment strategist at LPL Research. ÂVolatility is back and it may require more active strategies on the part of investors to pursue their long-term goals,ÂŽ Lynch said. ÂVolatility is also not to be feared, but embraced, as varying data points will cause bouts of market anxiety. But remember that fundamentals are still strong.ÂŽ The economy is indeed quite strong by many measures Â„ consumer spending is growing, unemployment is low and manufacturing surveys are near record levels. And many experts say that is more important than the marketÂs daily ups and downs. So whatÂs behind this weekÂs upset? Investors have grown concerned about a recent, steep drop in U.S. government bond prices and an ensuing upward move in bond yields, which makes bonds more attractive relative to stocks. The market is also worried about rising interest rates, which tend to climb on expectations of future economic growth and inÂ”ation and can increase costs for business Â„ slowing growth and dampening corporate proÂ“ts. ÂThereÂs some concern that third-quarter earnings could be maybe a little bit less robust than they were in the second quarter and there could be more pressure on profit margins,ÂŽ said Willie Delwiche, investment strategist at Baird. Worries about a slowdown in the global economy and the escalating U.S.-China trade dispute also have contributed to investorsÂ unease. And markets typically see increased volatility in months preceding midterm elections. ÂWe are not surprised by the uptick in volatility toward more normal levels,ÂŽ market strategists at Wells Fargo Investment Institute wrote in a report Thursday, adding that ÂitÂs too soon to say that the pullback is over.ÂŽ Having bonds and equities selling off may feel like the worst of both worlds for investment portfolios, but the marketÂs shift isnÂt as bad as it might seem, said Michael Crook, head of institutional strategy at UBS Global Wealth Management. He notes that the S&P 500 is basically back to where it was during the summer, and only down slightly from its all-time high. In addition, the negative return in bonds barely registers when one considers how bonds have performed this year. ÂThatÂs very normal volatility, and while it has been acute Â„ like all market drops Â„ it only erases a few weeks of gains,ÂŽ Crook said. The marketÂs stability in 2017 may have given investors a false sense of security too, said Nationwide Chief of Investment Research Mark Hackett. The fundamental strength of that year resulted in historically low volatility and market pullbacks. One natural reaction to increased volatility is the inclination to get off the wild ride and sell. If you have a lengthy time horizon for the investment, say a decade, the general recommendation is to resist that temptation. Stocks have historically offered some of the biggest returns over the long term for investors. For investors who want less volatility, bonds, savings accounts or other investments offer less risk. The trade-off is that returns over the coming decade will likely be lower. Remember that what is happening in the headlines is not necessarily what is happening in your portfolio, said Judith Ward, a senior Â“nancial planner at T. Rowe Price.Still feeling jumpy? Review your portfolio and make sure your holdings are where you want them to be and that theyÂre on course to meet your goals. Rebalance the portfolio, if needed, but resist the urge to Â”ee. Any Â“nancial adviser will remind you that those who sold in the depths of the global Â“nancial meltdown missed out on big gains in years that followed. So whatÂs behind this weekÂs upset? Investors have grown concerned about a recent, steep drop in U.S. government bond prices and an ensuing upward move in bond yields, which makes bonds more attractive relative to stocks.

www.highlandsnewssun.com October 14, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | D7Retailers up their game after Toys R Us closuresFocusing on making stores a dynamic shopping experienceBy ANNE DÂINNOCENZIOTHE ASSOCIATED PRESSNEW YORK Â„ When Toys R Us closed its doors, customers mourned the loss of a beloved brand that conjured memories of their own childhood. Retailers, on the other hand, saw an opportunity. Rather than cede any more ground to online behemoth Amazon, companies like Target, Walmart and Party City ramped up their offerings. Now, ahead of the pivotal holiday season, theyÂre going even further by focusing on making their stores a dynamic shopping experience. That means creating play areas for kids, offering demos of new toys and staging events like scavenger hunts in the stores. Retailers are trying to grab a piece of the nearly $3 billion left on the table by Toys R Us, or 12 percent of the U.S. toy market, according to NPD Group Inc., a market research group. Last month, Party City opened 50 Toy City pop-up shops that feature six-by-eightfoot Lego dinosaurs and other interactive displays. Walmart says 30 percent of its holiday toy assortment will be new. It will also offer 40 percent more toys on Walmart.com from a year ago. In November and December, the companyÂs toy area will be rebranded as ÂAmericaÂs Best Toy Shop.ÂŽ Starting in late October, Target will devote extra space at 500 stores located near former Toys R Us stores for bigger toys like electric cars, playhouses and musical instruments as well as adding nearly 200 more products. And 100 Target stores will see new layouts and Â“xtures in the toy area. The company is also expanding the number of kidsÂ events it hosts. Most recently, it had a Lego Minecraft event that featured a scavenger hunt. At least one foreign toy retailer is looking into the U.S. market after the demise of Toys R Us. Mexico-based Distroller World, an experience-based retailer with more than 60 stores in Mexico and Latin America, is set to open its third store in the U.S. in October. And it will be approaching U.S. department stores to open shops to replicate its model in Mexico, says CEO Daryn Fillis. At the center of the experience: Parents and children create their own adventure to adopt an alien baby delivered in a space capsule. ÂItÂs all about the demonstrations, the hands-on experience,ÂŽ said Jim Silver, editor-in-chief of TTPM, a toy review site. ÂWhen you get your hands on a toy and you can touch and feel, it does lead to greater sales. And those are the experiences that shoppers enjoy.ÂŽ Meanwhile, Amazon is reportedly planning a toy catalog to be distributed at its Whole Foods stores. The company declined to comment on the catalog, but analysts say Amazon could grow its market share in toys from 15 percent to 20 percent this year. Toy sellers had been long taking advantage of Toys R Us woes, but it stepped up its efforts when the chain Â“led Chapter 11 in the fall of 2017 and accelerated the pace when the chain announced it was liquidating its operations in March. As of early this year, Toys R Us had more than 800 U.S. stores. It closed the last 200 stores at the end of June. But no one can replicate Toys R UsÂ constant supply of hot products to its stores until Dec. 25. In fact, NPD expects 20 percent of Toys R Us sales will Âsimply evaporate.ÂŽ ItÂs not issuing a holiday toy sales forecast, but others expect the Â“gure to be unchanged compared to a year ago, when it was up about 2 percent. With reports of the retailerÂs demise, there was an outpouring of nostalgia from shoppers, and some analysts credit that empathy for helping to drive an uptick in toy sales for the Â“rst half of the year. U.S. toy sales from January through June increased 7 percent to $7.9 billion, according to NPD. Last year, toy sales increased 1 percent to $20.7 billion from 2016. ÂI am convinced that the strong toy industry growth so far this year has been at least partially supported by the empathy that people felt toward losing a store like Toys R Us,ÂŽ said Juli Lennett, NPDÂs senior vice president and industry adviser for toys in a statement. ÂI think it brought about an emotional response that resulted in parents buying more toys overall.ÂŽ Even FAO Schwarz is taking advantage of the nostalgia. The iconic toy store is set to reopen in November in Manhattan shuttering three years ago. The store will be staffed with theatrical performers and will feature new play areas like a mini grocery store where kids can buy pretend food made of wood. In another section, thereÂll be a mechanic who will help kids build radio controlled race cars. FAO Schwarz is also bringing back the oversized piano made famous in the Tom Hanks movie ÂBig.ÂŽJessica McCune, 30, was a big fan of Toys R Us and she stocked up on a number of toys when the stores were closing. Although she said she plans to shift her toy shopping to Walmart, Target and Amazon, she still misses her old go-to.

It will also oer 40 percent more toys on Walmart.com from a year ago.

D8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 14, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com 4 signs youÂre not ready to be a homeowner Â„ and what to do about itBy DEBORAH KEARNSBANKRATE.COMBuying a home is a major life milestone, right up there with snagging a dream job or Â“nding true love. Your heart might be set on becoming a homeowner, but red Â”ags might indicate youÂre not yet ready to make the leap. For many, particularly millennials, homeownership represents much more than a Â“nancial investment. In a recent Homes.com survey on millennial attitudes toward homebuying, 74 percent of millennials equate home ownership with stability. Although it will likely take them longer to meet their goal, 68 percent of millennial respondents said theyÂre likely to buy a home at some point in the future, the survey found. Whether itÂs too much debt, a lack of savings or a roving lifestyle, there are several reasons why potential homeowners might want to delay a home purchase. Here are four of them Â„ and advice on how to overcome these obstacles.1. You have too much debtTo get approved for a mortgage, you must show you can handle all of the expenses of owning a home (including the ones that arenÂt rolled into your monthly mortgage payments). You also have to meet your other Â“nancial obligations, and that might be a challenge if you already have a mountain of debt on your plate, says Jennifer Beeston, branch manager and vice president of mortgage lending with Guaranteed Rate. ÂA lot of people approach buying a home in terms of whatÂs the max they can afford,ÂŽ Beeston says. ÂWith lendersÂ guidelines getting looser, some will accept a debtto-income ratio of up to 50 percent, but thatÂs based on your mortgage payment and debts that show up on your credit report in relation to gross income.ÂŽ Beeston adds that DTI calculations donÂt take into account expenses such as schooling, daycare, income taxes, healthcare and retirement savings. How to overcome it: Pay down your debt to a manageable level. If youÂve accumulated a lot of debt over time, consider a personal loan to consolidate them into one streamlined, and preferably lower-interest, monthly payment. And avoid getting sucked into a new debt trap by cutting spending and diligently paying down debt. A debt consolidation calculator can help you determine how to strategically consolidate and pay down your debt.2. Your credit isnÂt stellarYour credit history and credit score are closely linked to the mortgage pricing youÂll receive Â„ and that impacts your monthly payments for the life of the loan, says Dan Green, CEO of Growella, a mortgage news and advice website. A good starting point is to give yourself a credit check-up to see where you stand. You can get you free credit report and score from Bankrate. ÂIf your credit score is not optimal, youÂll pay more for a mortgage,ÂŽ Green says. ÂYour credit score today will have a huge impact on the homes youÂre looking at and can afford. It may be sensible to wait to buy and work on your credit.ÂŽ LetÂs do a quick calculation for two borrowers applying a 30-year, Â“xed-rate mortgage for $300,000 with 10 percent down. Jen has an excellent credit score and was offered a 4.75 percent interest rate and Sarah, who has a lower score, was offered a 5 percent interest rate. SarahÂs monthly payments are roughly $41 more than JenÂs but where she really gets dinged is in overall interest paid. SheÂll pay nearly $15,000 more in interest of the loanÂs lifetime because she didnÂt get a lower interest rate. How to overcome it: To boost your credit score, pay your credit cards and other debts on time. Ideally, credit cards should be paid off in full every month. Avoid opening new credit lines unless youÂre establishing a credit history. Finally, keep your credit utilization ratio to 30 percent or less of your available credit limit for each credit account. In other words, your balances shouldnÂt exceed 30 percent of your maximum credit limits. If youÂre emotionally and mentally ready to buy a home, thereÂs likely a home you can buy. The catch: you might have to settle for less than your ideal home if your credit and Â“nances impact what you qualify for, Green points out.3. You donÂt have enough savingsBuying a house comes with a lot of upfront expenses that go beyond your monthly mortgage payment. Expect to pay 2 percent to 4 percent of a homeÂs purchase price in closing costs. Plus, thereÂs the down payment (anywhere from 3 percent to 20 percent of the purchase price, depending on your loan type) and moving expenses to factor in. But itÂs the hidden costs of homeownership that take many new homeowners by surprise. These might include homeowners association dues, condo/assessment fees, routine maintenance, utility bills and major repairs. Ideally, homeowners should save roughly 1 percent of the homeÂs purchase price each year for maintenance expenses, says Adam Smith, president of the Colorado Real Estate Finance Group. Many people donÂt have that kind of cash on hand. A recent Bankrate survey found that just 39 percent of Americans would pay for a $1,000 unexpected expense from savings. How to overcome it: To save more, pay yourself Â“rst by depositing a set amount from each paycheck into a savings account. If you have to start small, thatÂs OK. Consider opening a high-yield savings account to accrue interest on your cash. Cut back on unnecessary spending such as monthly subscription services, eating out, impulse shopping and other Â“nancial vices. Depending on your income and credit proÂ“le, you may qualify for homebuyer assistance programs that can help you pay for down payment and closing costs for a home.4. You want a carefree lifestyleIf youÂre someone moves frequently, buying a home might not make Â“nancial or practical sense. Lifestyle plays a huge role in the decision to rent versus buy, Smith says. Remember that the bigger the house, the more maintenance and upkeep. If you want to keep things low-key, buying a condo or continuing to rent might make more sense until youÂre ready for more responsibility. Another thing to consider if you donÂt tend to sit still: it might be a hassle to sell your home or rent it out eventually. Home values can go up or down over time so there are no guarantees that youÂll be able to sell. How to overcome it: Take time to consider your lifestyle factors that impact your housing choices, including whether you plan to move around a lot, your ability keep up with and pay for ongoing maintenance, your commute, and current or future family needs. And take care with buying a house with a partner if you donÂt share similar Â“nancial and life goals, Beeston says. ÂDonÂt rush to buy a house because youÂre reacting to a life event,ÂŽ Beeston says. ÂTake your time. ItÂs a big purchase, and thereÂs no guarantee youÂll get what you paid Â„ or more Â„ for it.ÂŽ METRO CREATIVE SERVICESBuying a home is a major life milestone.Toyota recalls trucks, SUVs and cars to fix air bag problemBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSDETROIT Â„ Toyota is recalling nearly 188,000 pickup trucks, SUVs and cars worldwide because the air bags may not inÂ”ate in a crash. The recall covers 2018 and 2019 Tundra pickups and Sequoia SUVs as well as 2019 Avalon sedans. Toyota says the air bag control computer can erroneously detect a fault when the vehicles are started. With a fault, the air bags may not deploy in a crash. The company wouldnÂt say if the problem has caused any injuries. Toyota will notify owners and dealers will update the air bag control software. The recall is expected to begin Oct. 22. Toyota says the recall covers about 185,000 vehicles in North America and 2,600 in other markets. adno=3619576-1 Newly Expanded! Now over 3,000 sq ft!
