A motorcycle passenger fell off after a wreck at the entrance of DeSoto Plaza, said Sebring Police Sgt. Viviane Buck. She was not wearing a helmet. Emergency medical personnel stabilized her at Highlands Regional Medical Center for a ” ight out to a trauma center, possibly Lakeland Regional Medical Center, based on the ” ight trajectory, Buck said.

By MARC VALEROSTAFF WRITERAVON PARK „ When a facade grant application stalls in the approval process due to no CRA Advisory Board Meeting, can the Community Redevelopment Agency Board go ahead and approve it? That question was presented at Mondays City Council meeting by City Council candidate Maria Sutherland. If a business turns in a facade grant applicant and there is no Main Street CRA Advisory Board meeting „ what is the remedy for approving this application because many of them have estimates with a time limit, she said. Sutherland asked if there is no Advisory Board meeting can the CRA Board take that responsibility? Last month there was no Main Street CRA Advisory Board meeting because it was cancelled and if it gets cancelled again this month then that means that facade grant just sits there until a meeting happens. City Administrator June Fisher said the Main Street CRA did not have a quorum for last months meeting. She is hoping they will have a quorum for this months meeting (5 p.m., today). If the CRA Board wants to skip the process of getting approval “ rst from the Advisory Board it could do that, but right AP discusses CRA procedures SUTHERLAND ANDERSON Florida TaxWatch has provided the 2018 Voter Guide to Floridas Constitutional Amendments in order to help educate voters on the issues before them on this Novembers ballot.

By MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ Anita Huber Scott, graduate of Sebring High School, lost her class ring over 40 years ago at a hotel in the Midwest. She thought it was lost forever, but she received a text from a fellow classmate in August that set in motion a chain of events that would eventually reunite her with her ring. Scott had purchased the ring from Highlands Jewelers when she was working in high school. In either 1978 or 1979, Scott had put her ring on the night stand beside her hotel bed. It fell off the night stand, and she forgot to pick it up the next morning. About 100 miles down the road, I remembered the ring,Ž Scott said. I thought, I guess Ill never see that ring again. We didnt have cell phones back then, so I didnt try to contact the hotel.Ž Two months ago, the woman who had her class ring saw a Facebook post for SHSs 1978 class reunion. The woman, who did not want to be named, had been given the class ring by her boyfriend in 1985, approximately six years after Scott lost the ring. Her boyfriend told her that he had purchased the ring from someone in Florida, but she had always felt uneasy about his statements and thought he might have been lying. She wondered if the ring should be returned. She had been searching for the owner of the ring for years and had stumbled onto our class of 78 Facebook page,Ž Scott said. The unnamed woman was delighted to “ nally make some headway on her search, especially since she has stage four cancer.

It was faith-based, took place in Washington Heights and invited all to make a better world. We cannot do it without your help,Ž event organizer Willie Olds said from a stage just north of the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Lemon Avenue. We have to change our minds. Make up your minds.Ž At one time, Olds said, the neighborhood of Washington Heights had grocery stores, repair shops, a dry cleaner and other typical businesses, but they left. Patrice Ayala, also an organizer, told the Highlands News-Sun that was in the 1960s. When big box stores moved into Sebring in the 1980s and drew business away from the historic downtown Circle, they took business from Washington Heights, too, she said. Olds then spoke about how many people had loved ones hurt or lost, one way or another, to crime. He recalled his own brother being shot in Olds Grocery. He said Christ can save the community from the troubles it suffers now, which continues to be street-level drug sales and gun violence. It aint a white thing. It aint a black thing,Ž Olds said: Its a God thing.Ž The event started at approximately 10:30 a.m. and continued past 3 p.m. Sponsored by Reaching Out International Inc. and Bread For Life Ministries, Hope for MLK Boulevard was a closedstreet event with lots of pedestrian traf“c. Among the organizers were Willie and Valerie Olds, Kevin and Patricia Ayala and Tony Diaz. Ayala said two or three people decided that day to dedicate their lives to Christ. Diaz said they ran out of food at the center on the corner of MLK Boulevard and Lemon and had a really good crowd. Free food continued to be served out of a recreational vehicle down the street: Hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks, along with music and prayers for those who have a need. Patricia Ayala said non-pro“t community-support groups on hand included Tri-County Human Services, Drug Free Highlands, the Florida Rural Health Network, Holy Trap Ministries, Transformers Ministry, South Florida State College and the iMAD Program „ I Make a Difference.Ž The Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce Community Oriented Policing Service (COPS) unit was on hand. There were plans to have the Sebring Fire Department on hand as well. Its unknown if they were able to stay, with more than one wreck on U.S. 27 that day. Praise dance teams and other performers came from Radical Praise Ministry, Faith and Familylife Worship Center in Sebring, Simply Redeemed Youth Worship Center in Lake Placid and other churches. Pastor Spencer Sanders with Church of God in Christ gave a closing prayer, with almost all remaining festival goers holding hands in a circle. Willie Olds said he wants to see the event repeated next year, but in the Highway Park neighborhood of Lake Placid, then in Southside Avon Park the year after that. Diaz said it was a chance to get out and show the love of Christ. Were going to be here for Christ and Christ alone,Ž Willie Olds said.Hope for MLKB brings crowdOlds: Future events in LP, AP Revelers pray toward the end of Saturdays Hope for MLK Boulevard event, a faith-based street fair held in Washington Heights at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Lemon Avenue..

Investigator Mike Hirsch led the departments investigative team to map and record the accident scene at the plaza entrance. Buck said preliminary reports said that, shortly before 3:12 p.m. Saturday, a southbound blue minivan turned left into DeSoto Plaza in front of the northbound motorcycle.

She noted the many art related events and activities that take place in the museum and its benefit to Avon Park and Highlands County.

Thomas responded, that is one of our main concerns.Ž Last year the HCA missed being awarded a grant by 1 point, but it doesnt mean the they cannot sustain their bills, she said. We may not be able to do all we want to do, but we will aggressively pursue grants.Ž They want to save their funds for projects and some of the donors have reduced the amount of their contributions this year, Thomas explained. Garrett asked if they had a retail outlet they would be able to sustain. Thomas responded, the alliance has a retail store where they get a low percentage for the sale of an artists work and the alliance receives a percentage from the classes that are held there. They expect to do OK.Ž With the current lease in effect until Oct. 31, 2020, council took no action at the Monday, Oct. 8 meeting toward extending the lease.LEASEFROM PAGE 1A PHIL ATTINGER/STAFFA light metallic blue minivan, resembling a Chrysler Town & Country, sits just inside the entrance to DeSoto Square on Saturday afternoon after a wreck with a motorcycle causing serious injuries.

Readers may also email Letters to the Editor to A recent editorial from The Decatur Daily (Alabama): A breast cancer diagnosis doesnt affect just the patient. It causes sorrow and fear for all the people who know the mother, grandmother, sister or wife confronting the disease. The statistics on breast cancer are grim. An estimated 266,000 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer this year, and the illness will kill 41,000 women, according to the Susan G. Komen organization. There will be 670 deaths in Alabama from breast cancer in 2018, the American Cancer Society estimates. Yet, there are positive signs. The Komen organization reports breast cancer mortality declined 39 percent in the United States from 1989-2015, and that makes efforts such as devoting October to breast cancer awareness important. Coloring this month pink helps various organizations raise money for research and improved treatment that will help decrease mortality from the illness. More importantly, having a breast cancer awareness month provides a chance to educate women about how they can lessen the likelihood theyll get breast cancer but detect it early if they do. There are some risk factors for breast cancer that are out of a womans control, including family history, her gender, age and ethnicity. Most breast cancer is found in women 55 and older, for instance. And women are 100 times more likely to get breast cancer than men. The American Cancer Society says there are steps a woman should take to reduce her chances of having breast cancer, including: Stay physically active. The ACS recommends getting 150 minutes of moderate exercise or 75 minutes of vigorous exercise every week, preferably spread out over several days. Limit use of alcohol. Women who drink should consume no more than one alcoholic drink a day, the ACS recommends. Stay at a healthy weight. The ACS recommends avoiding weight gain with a proper diet and exercise. Recommendations for detecting breast cancer vary based on a womans risk factors and age, but “nding the disease early and getting treatment clearly lead to better outcomes. The American Cancer Society says women who get regular mammograms are more likely to have their breast cancer found early, less likely to need the most aggressive treatments and more likely to be cured. The latest recommendations call for women at average risk of breast cancer to consider starting regular mammograms between the ages of 40-44 before getting them annually from 45-54. Women 55 and older may need them only every other year. So as the weather cools and fall arrives this month, take the opportunity to learn more about breast cancer. Women can make lifestyle changes that make them less vulnerable to the disease. They also can make sure to talk to their medical providers about screening. All of us can consider donating to an organization or project that helps “ght breast cancer, whether it involves research, purchasing new equipment or making detection accessible to those with limited resources. Think pink in October. Think prevention. Think early detection.Think pink during OctoberWe all have things in our life that are not exactly secret, but are also not things we share with everyone we meet. For me, that is that I am a Type 1 diabetic. I do not hide this fact from people, however it rarely comes up organically in conversation and as such most people in my life do not know this about me. With being diabetic comes dealing with both low and high blood sugars. These ”uctuations cause changes in my body and sometimes their effects can be quite negative. High blood sugars are characterized by extreme thirst, feeling lethargic, being moody or irritable, and frequent trips to the bathroom. Some of these symptoms are hard to identify as being related to blood sugar levels. For example, I cant always tell if the reason I get upset about something is because it genuinely upsets me, or if it is because my blood sugar is too high. Low blood sugars have symptoms such as shaking, feeling light headed, fuzzy brain,Ž sweating and tingling lips. These are all feelings that I can personally identify as being related to my blood sugar immediately. Low blood sugars just feel horrible. Whats even worse is that while youre feeling this way you must “nd the will to help yourself „ sometimes out of a dead sleep. I have been diabetic for 11 years now, but this does not mean that I have mastered this disease. This is because it is something you must always be thinking of. Unlike other illnesses where you might only have to take a pill at a certain time or once a day, diabetics must always be thinking of their disease. It in”uences every aspect of life, and is a serious factor in determining whether you have a good or a bad day. In our community there are quite a few people who have diabetes. A majority of those people have Type 2 diabetes however. The difference is that Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the pancreas does not make insulin, the hormone that regulates blood sugar levels, while Type 2 is when the body might make insulin but the body is resistant to it. Type 2 diabetes usually develops later in life for most people, though more and more young people are developing Type 2 diabetes due to unhealthy lifestyles. For some Type 1 diabetes develops during childhood, as it did with me. For others it might surface during a life event such as pregnancy, as it did with my mother who had gestational diabetes that was later realized to be Type 1. This is a life-altering disease that in”uences every part of the affected persons life. Currently there is no cure for Type 1 diabetes, and learning to control your diabetes is the best thing that can be done. There is always the chance that this could change, but until then it is important for diabetics „ Types 1 and 2 „ to be ever vigilant.Living with type-1 diabetesGUEST COLUMNAnsley Bohlman For baseball bugs, to use the 1900s word for fans, October is the sweetest month „ play in, play off, and eventually World Series games. Now, if only Alex Rodriguez went away, everything would be crackerjack. Rodriguez, baseballs most reviled player since Ty Cobb more than a century ago, has landed two primo broadcasting gigs, one announcing and one in-studio, at ESPN Sunday Night Baseball (SNB) and Fox Sports, respectively. ESPNs decision to hire Rodriguez is curious, to put it mildly. A bit of history: in 2015, ESPN summarily put the skids to former Philadelphia Phillies, Boston Red Sox and Arizona Diamondbacks pitching ace Curt Schilling. The reason: Schillings tweets which ESPN found offensive. To replace Schilling, ESPN selected Jessica Mendoza, a stand-out Stanford University and Olympian softball hurler. But, since softball isnt Major League Baseball, and Mendoza never racked up anything comparable to Schillings 216 big league wins, with an 11-2 post-season record that included the American League Division Championships most heroic efforts „ the bloody foot game „ many viewers rightly felt shortchanged. Then, in 2018, ESPN reshuf”ed the SNB announcers roster again, kept Mendoza, and added Matt Vasgersian and Rodriguez. ESPN, having endured a long period of losing viewers, hemorrhaging money and slashing staff, committed a huge judgment error. Rewarding a cheater is unpopular among the majority of baseball fans, and their displeasure is re”ected in SNBs dramatic ratings decline. Sports Illustrated de“ned the viewer drop-off as downright ugly.Ž The quali“ed announcers pool is vast; choosing a dirty player makes no sense. Thirty MLB franchises have about 100 fulland part-time announcers who have outstanding MLB quali“cations, earned on the up and up. Among them are the Oakland As Ray Fosse, the Atlanta Braves Don Sutton and the Pittsburgh Pirates Bob Walk, to name only a few. Despite what ESPN would like viewers to believe, Fosse, Sutton and Walk know as much about baseball as Rodriguez, and are less pompous. Rodriguezs baseball career was built in large part on PED cheating, then lying about it. Because of his role in the Biogenesis scandal, Rodriguez was suspended for 211 games, later reduced to 162 games. As Rodriquezs broadcast career evolves, another reason ESPN should torpedo him is abundantly clear -hes a self-absorbed gas bag who struggles to get even the smallest detail correct. Mendoza cant get a word in edgewise; she might as well return to Stanford. Media sources reported that Rodriquez unsuccessfully tried to put the skids to Mendoza who was in her contracts last year. Here are a few of the embarrassing blunders Rodriquez made during the National League wild card game between the Colorado Rockies and the Chicago Cubs. Rodriguez called Ian Desmond Desmond Howard,Ž identi“ed Rockies manager Bud Black as Buddy Bell,Ž and branded Albert Almora Jr. by the last name of Almonte.Ž Lets cut to the chase. The MLB Commissioners Of“ce and individual teams front of“ces make the rote observation on exposed PED abusers that they have violated MLBs drug policy. First-time offenders will receive an unpaid 80-game suspension „ really 68 games since the players have 12 days to get in condition at a minor league. But suspensions are less than a wrist slap compared to what the punishment should be. Pursuant to the Anabolic Steroid Control Act of 1990, PEDs illegal possession, distribution, sale and use are federal felonies that carry “nes and jail sentences.

On Aug. 1, 2018, Basett texted Scott and asked her a few questions. Do you still have your high school ring?Ž he asked. Scott replied, I lost it years ago.Ž Bassett asked her for details about her ring, including the color of the stone and her initials. The initials on the ring were AJH, the initials she had before she married. Scott felt that she would have been the only one with those initials. Contact her [the lady with the ring] and tell her your initials,Ž Bassett advised. Dont give personal information, credit card, etc.Ž Scott was hesitant about making contact, fearing a scam, but she texted the lady with the ring. The woman with the ring texted back and sent a picture of it. It was de“nitely mine!Ž Scott said. I kept getting messages all day, since she was excited about getting the ring back to its owner,Ž Scott said. She cleaned it up and put it in a box.Ž While Scott talked with the woman, she discovered that she lived in Reading, Pennsylvania, and Scott had cousins who lived in that area. I made calls to my cousin, Yvonne Yohn, and this lady made arrangements for them to meet up,Ž Scott said. We were still a bit on the cautious side. I was hoping I was not setting up Yvonne for disaster. On August 6, Scotts cousin, Yohn, met the woman and got the ring. My uncle, John Huber, mailed the ring to me,Ž Scott said. After 40 years without her class ring, Scott “nally received the ring in the mail on August 13. Scott, who lives in Thorn“eld, Missouri, ”ew into Sebring on Friday, Oct. 12 for her 40th class reunion. Bassett said, Im going to have you tell the story about your class ring at the reunion.Ž I was blown away to get my class ring back,Ž Scott said. You hear about things like this on TV, but it actually happened to me. Weve been doing research on my husbands dad and grandfather, veterans of WWI and WWII, and bringing relics from these wars to our family. We have a little museum of WWI and WWII in our basement. Now I have something, a relic, I can pass down to my family.ŽRINGFROM PAGE 1A now that isnt the process, Fisher said. Mayor Garrett Anderson said that since he has been sitting on the CRA Board he has done that many times. Sutherland said many of the applications are time sensitive in terms of their estimates, which if not approved in a timely matter would require the applicant to go back and get more estimates and resubmit the facade grant application. So if someone turns an application in and it didnt get reviewed because there wasnt a meeting and you dont have another meeting, will the CRA Board consider the application? Anderson responded that it seems like there is not a plan in place for that. Anderson asked if such a plan could be established Cant the CRA Board simply say give it to us?Ž Garrett asked. City Attorney Glinda Pruitt said they can, if thats the procedure they want followed. Councilman Terry Heston said the City has been having this problem for many years. Pruitt said Thursday that she did not receive formal direction from the City Council to look into the CRA Board issue the City Council discussed Monday. Only two of the Council Members requested that that be done,Ž she said. It is something that I have to formally bring before the CRA Board and get a direction from the majority of the Council. The statements made at the last Council meeting were merely a request, however, I have not received formal direction.ŽCRAFROM PAGE 1A them. It would ensure there was a broad consensus that new revenue is needed, and that the proposed tax or fee increase is the right way to get it. History has shown that a supermajority vote threshold is usually achieved when the Florida Legislature raises taxes or fees. The current revenue limit in the Florida Constitution is too weak to provide any real protection for Florida taxpayers and a supermajority vote requirement would be a simpler more effective taxpayer protection. In times of a budget shortfall, a supermajority requirement would increase the likelihood that unnecessary spending is addressed before taxpayers are asked to pay more. Cons It would make it too hard for the Legislature to raise taxes and provide suf“cient funding for education and other necessary government services. Unnecessary exemptions and tax loopholes would become enshrined in law. Legislators need ”exibility to respond to a changing economic environment. The amendment does not include a provision that would allow for tax increases in times of emergencies. Florida taxes are already low enough. The Legislature has cut taxes every year since 2009, even without a supermajority requirement. Analysis The concept of a supermajority vote to raise taxes is not new to Florida. The Constitution already requires a proposed constitutional amendment to create a new state tax or fee to be approved by not fewer than two-thirds of the voters voting in the election. In addition, the Legislature is prohibited from raising the corporate income tax rate above the current rate of 5.5percent without a three-“fths vote of the membership of each chamber of the Legislature. The Legislature also requires supermajority votes for local governments to raise many of their limited array of tax options. Several local option sales, motor fuel, and tourist development taxes require a supermajority vote of the local governing body (or referendum) to enact. A two-thirds vote of a local governing body is also required to levy a property tax millage rate that exceeds the rolled-back rate and a unanimous vote is required to exceed the rolled-back rate by more than 10percent. A majority plus one vote is required to increase local business taxes in certain circumstances. Most states (31) have some form of state revenue, appropriation, and/or tax limitation. This includes 15 states that require a supermajority vote of the Legislature to raise taxes. There are requirements of three-“fths (5 states), two-thirds (7 states), and three fourths (3 states). There are also two states that require a vote of the people to raise taxes. Florida TaxWatch has been recommending a higher standard to pass tax increases since 1995. Our recommendation has been a 60percent threshold, which is not as strict as the one proposed in Amendment 5. History has shown that when revenue increases are needed, the Legislature can muster enough support for super-majority approval. The last major state tax increase was in 2009. In response to the Great Recession and the resulting drop in revenues, the Legislature passed three major tax/fee increases, totaling more than $2billion. These were a $1.00 perpack tax increase on cigarettes and a 60-cent surcharge on other tobacco products, multiple increases to motor vehicle-related taxes and fees, and multiple courtrelated fee increases. The Senate voted unanimously for all three bills. There were dissenting votes in the house, but all of these would have passed with a three“fths requirement. One bill „ the motor vehicle tax increases „ would have fallen just short of a two-thirds vote. Another analysis by Florida TaxWatch showed that even back when signi“cant state tax increases were more common, most of them would have passed with a supermajority vote. Florida TaxWatchs recommended super-majority requirement does not apply to every fee increase „ like Amendment 5 does „ but mustering enough votes to pass minor fee increases should not be an insurmountable obstacle either. While signi“cant tax increases have been rare in the Legislatures recent history, in virtually every session a few bills pass that create a minor new fee or result in a relatively small increase in taxes or fees. There have been 10 of these over the last three sessions and all would have passed with a supermajority vote requirement. Half of the bills received unanimous votes in both chambers. Fiscal Impact The Revenue Estimating Conference of“cially adopted a zeroŽ impact since it is dependent on future legislative action. It would create a new constraint on the Legislatures ability to enact, authorize or increase state taxes and fees. Other research has shown that states with strict supermajority requirements levy taxes at a nearly identical level as other states, on average. Conclusion Even though there has not been a major state tax increase since 2009 and the Legislature has instead cut taxes in every session since then, the constitutional imposition of a well-crafted supermajority requirement is still an important taxpayer safeguard. It would ensure that a broad consensus is reached before Floridians are required to contribute more of their hard-earned money to support a bigger state government. A supermajority vote requirement not only protects taxpayers, it can also help avoid a more severe tax or revenue limit that could improperly and imprudently constrain state government (such as voter approval of all taxes).VOTEFROM PAGE 1A

CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDESECTION BMonday, October 15, 2018 HIGHLANDS HEALTH By SUZY COHENDEAR PHARMACISTOne of the most powerful attributes of essential oils is that they contain powerful compounds with constituents in them that promote relaxation. Its fun to experiment with oils because they work! Doctors from around the world have used oils to relax patients prior to surgery, ease depression and anxiety and impact GABA receptors, which calm us down. Fragrances instead of pills, its a novel idea, right?! In one fascinating study, researchers learned that snif“ng Jasmine essential oil may be as effective as commonly prescribed barbiturates or benzodiazepines when it comes to inducing calm and sleepiness. Essential oils do not pose serious adverse health risks or side effects such as daytime drowsiness, morning hangovers or tolerance withdrawal. Also, unlike OTC sleep aids, they dont induce anticholinergic side effects such as constipation, blurry vision and dry mouth. The easiest way to get essential oils into your blood stream within seconds is to inhale them. Pour a few drops onto the palms of your hands, rub together and inhale deeply. Do this three to “ve times then rub your palms onto your neck, or the bottoms of your feet. My favorite way to use essential oils at night is in a diffuser. You can add a few different oils to the diffuser and enjoy better sleep. Here are a few ideas to get you started: Lavender Dreams If theres one, number one proven oil to relax the body and mind, ease melancholy, and enhance sleep, its lavender. Combine lavender essential oils with any number of other oils for great sleep. For example, you could mix it with vetiver, frankincense or calendula. My favorite is three drops lavender combined with 3 drops sandalwood (equal mix) plus one drop of bergamot, all in my little diffuser by the bed. I nicknamed it lavender dreams, lol. Sleep Like a Baby Blend Another blend for enhanced sleep and relaxation is below. Depending on the size of your diffuser, you may want to use fewer drops, but either way, keep the ratio the same: € Four drops clary sage essential oil € Four drops ylang-ylang essential oil € Four drops of Roman chamomile € Two drops wild orange (or bergamot) Clary sage, ylang-ylang, and Roman chamomile are wonder ingredients for promoting relaxation, curbing anxiety, and clary sage is especially effective for helping women balance hormones, including fat-storing cortisol, which leads to belly fat. The Knock Out Blend For when sleep seems the farthest thing from your mind, and youve been in front of that computer all day, with all that circadian-disrupting blue light pouring into your eyeballs, this is the blend I really recommend. Combine three drops each of frankincense, bergamot, and sandalwood essential oils. Instead of “lling your home with synthetic perfumes that have hundreds of strange arti“cial chemicals, try natural essential oils.3 DIY essential oils to help you relaxDEAR PHARMACISTSuzy Cohen By MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ The libraries in Highlands County make sure that a good book can be enjoyed by everyone, even those who are blind or have limited vision. The libraries have a variety of services for people with varying degrees of limited vision „ large print books, electronic books and audio books. According to the National Federation of the Blinds website, approximately 486,400 Floridians have some type of visual disability. Since vision problems increase with age, and Highland County has a large number of senior citizens, services for those who are blind or have limited vision are greatly needed in this area. To meet this need, the Heartland Library Cooperative, a cooperative that includes seven libraries in “ve counties has 29, 613 large print books, 11,951 audio books and thousands of electronic books that can be downloaded on a computer or tablet and enlarged on the screen. In addition, library staff is trained to provide extra assistance to people who are blind or have low vision. The staff has a special application people may complete to receive talking books from the Florida Division of Blind Services. People who are blind, visually impaired or have a physical impairment that prevents them from being able to hold a book can have books on records, cassettes or in braille mailed to their home postage free. Libraries have the application from the Florida Division of Blind Services on “le and will explain the process for getting the books to people who need the service.

The tournament entry fee is $60 and includes lunch, prizes and a raffle. The contact number to play is 863-453-7555. Ruetz was a normal and happy 15 month-old who talked and laughed and cuddled. Then, all of a sudden, he lost the ability to communicate and, according to grandmother, Shannon Ruetz, he stopped looking at people and started looking through them. Linsey Ruetz and James White knew something was wrong with their son and after a round of doctors, fighting with insurance and many tests, their son was diagnosed with autism. Although the family suspected the diagnosis, it was made official on May 28, 2015; the toddler was 2 yearsold at that point. The Reutz family rallied around the toddler and did everything possible with several types of therapies with mixed results for years. With the help of science, hope has finally landed at the the Ruetz household in the form of stem cells. Shannon and Bradley Ruetz are the youngsters grandparents and Shannon has given up her retirement to take care of her grandson. She has to drive him and pick him up at Victory Ridge Academy, a special needs school in Lake Wales. Ruetz spends several hours a week on the road, not to mention a small fortune in gas. Shannon has a smile on her face when she speaks of her grandchild, even with explaining the negative side effects of the disorder. Sylas loves to take walks and touch all the leavesŽ she said. He loves to swim and and loves golf cart rides with his grandpa. He is non-verbal and has no upper body strength and suffers from high anxiety.Ž Shannon explained that the stem cell treatments from umbilical cord blood is showing amazing results. The treatments have not been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration. Swinging for stem cells COURTESY PHOTOSylas Ruetz is seen here at Victory Ridge Academy.

B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 15, 2018 the more she can move forward with a feeling of some control.Ž A proactive approach may help a patient better anticipate what to expect during her treatment and beyond, thus reducing anxiety. 2. Be transparent A common concern that Murphy hears: How do I tell my children? Its key to tailor the news based on age and circumstances. The preparation is really around knowing each kid and how they handle dif“cult information,Ž she says, adding that little ones know more than we give them credit for.Ž Dispense information as you get it in bite-sizedŽ pieces; calmly explain what could occur and how day-to-day routines may change during treatment. 3. Be receptive Whether its driving the kids to soccer practice, mowing the lawn or preparing meals for the week, help from others can lighten your load during a stressful time. Murphy recommends designating a representative to “eld and delegate the requests, as friends and loved ones afraid of bothering the family may hesitate otherwise. He or she can also serve as a spokesperson to share updates from the patient „ and forward messages from well-wishers. 4. Be rested Chemotherapy and radiation can cause fatigue, nausea and pain, among other side effects. Know that your body may have reduced capacity and react accordingly when needed. Sleep, after all, is a critical part of self-care. Says Murphy: Rightsize your expectations of physical activity and give yourself permission to change plans.Ž A spouse or sibling might videotape a childs dance recital and host an at-home showing afterward, for instance. 5. Be yourself When possible, pursue activities that have always lifted your mood (such as a book club or church group) and keep even small elements of past normalcy in the family schedule. Its about “guring out how a mom can still be a mom,Ž Murphy says. If reading is all I can handle, that means were all going to sit down at 9 oclock and enjoy our favorite book.Ž Sustaining your prior routine as much as possible is helpful while healing, she adds. 6. Be creative A paintbrush or piano is a powerful aid. Engaging in the healing arts really connects with the brains dopamine and pleasure center,Ž Murphy says. 7. Be inquisitive Cancer treatment can be costly. We often have the example of someone doing well, with solid insurance, but at a certain point the twists and turns of the care might be creating a strain,Ž Murphy says. We have a way to step in at any point to identify what some of those needs might be and try to plan for them.Ž 8. Be unguarded Even with a support system, some cancer patients may “nd the mental strain of cancer hard to handle. Thats when a counselor can be crucial. The value of talk therapy is evidence-based,Ž Murphy says. Many times, the worries and concerns in your head can be eased when you speak them out loud with validation and normalization.Ž If cancer-related anxiety or interrupted sleep persist, a psychiatrist may prescribe medication to help.CANCERFROM PAGE 1BIt is also very expensive and will require the youngster to travel to Panama City Panama for the treatments. According to Ruetz, the treatments work best if given before the age of seven. The treatments are given in three phases that are five days each and each phase costs $18,000. The total of the treatments are $54,000. That cost does not reflect the cost of travel and lodging. The family would appreciate any donations towards this potential life-altering treatments. A Gofundme account under StemCells for Sylas. Sponsoring a $100 hole in the upcoming golf tournament or entering to play will add additional funds towards his treatment.

Plank pose strengthens the wrists and tones the abdominal muscles/ shoulders, boosts energy and clears the mind. All Yoga postures require focus and concentration inward to create the internal image of the body an individual is visualizing. When lengthening the core and legs in a straight long line supporting the spine, the body is awakened in Plank, as the pose needs to be held for two minutes. Yoga poses with practice become easier as internal corrections are recognized and “xed based on the present stage of progress. Understanding how to perform the postures is the beginning of initiating the pose. Deep breathing is essential (inhaling/ exhaling through the nose in long breaths) and is a way to increase stamina to hold postures. Yoga is “rst about awakening the body with an internal image of how you want the body to respond, then holding postures to create correct alignment of all internal muscles/tissue/ skeleton. It is important to visualize the postures in the mind then activate the image/energy to achieve it. Learning the correct form in a Yoga class is the best way to learn how to initiate postures for the most internal/external bene“ts as well as disciplining the mind to hold and repeat the postures. When a pose is “rst initiated, the mind serves to imprint the correct form internally. Then the Practitioner works to create that image. When the mind tells the body how to perform the posture then the body muscle memory takes over. It is most interesting to feel what happens after the mind programs the pose in the Practitioners consciousness then turns the pose over to the body-mind to imitate. Gradually, the image the mind is teaching is articulated through the physical body as the breath is expanded and the ability to reformat the body to hold the correct posture occurs over time. Yoga is a very internal mental, physical, emotional, spiritual practice that the individual formats. It takes will, fortitude and concentrationŽ to apply postures in a slow precise method for the greatest bene“t to the body. More postures can be added and former ones are repeated in each practice. The motto is to just to do your best from where you are in the present moment. Yoga is a way to regenerate the body. Yoga is not about age,Ž it is about desire, dedication and practice with the individual in charge of their personal self-healing!The Plank of Life COURTESY PHOTOYoga practioner James at a YMCA class.

PAGE 15 October 15, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B7With all situations in life we identify, analyze and then deal with them. For example; if the car is dirty, you identify it or acknowledge the dirt...analyze it... how are you going to clean it? Maybe wash it in the driveway yourself with a little sweat. Maybe clean it by going through the automatic car wash. Perhaps call a mobile car service and have them come clean it. Finally; however you decide, you deal with it. This type of thinking is pretty universal. Its just being human. Some people will stress over health situations while others may not seem to let anything bother them. Professionally, I have learned over the years that people process their own situations quite differently than others. Often the person that they are the most uniquely different from is their spouse. The husband may want their wife to get a hearing evaluation but the wife will insist for years that everything is “ne with their hearing. Another scenario could be a wife who wants her husband replace his 15 year old hearing aid. His opinion is that is still turns on and whistles and therefore it has to be working properly. Sometimes it the kids who come in exasperated with the parents and just can not believe their parents dont care if they can hear or not!Ž The real truth in the matter is...they really do care. We all care about our speci“c situations or issues. Things have to be analyzed. Decisions have to be made. There is a lot of information that has to be processed. First things “rst though...remember, the very “rst thing is to identifyŽ the situation. Our hearing and communication abilities may present some hurdles. Very often it is the spouse, kids or signi“cant other who will bring the communication problem to the forefront. When a person gets a hearing loss they will often go through several steps on their way to dealing with it.Ž Hearing loss is considered an invisible disability. This is because it is very dif“cult for people with normal hearing to understand what someone with a hearing loss is going through. The “rst stage that a person will enter is Denial. People often feel less thanŽ and self-conscious so it is easier to “nd reasons for the problems that they are having. For example; problems understanding in the restaurant was because of the noise... not their hearing ability. The next round is Anger. Just like with other disabilities, often people go through the why me?Ž stage which often leads to resentment. This is because the person who cant understand in groups doesnt understand that you dont get why they dont want to go to the clubhouse for coffee hour. They feel excluded. Anger...anger that they cant “x it themselves. Move on to the Bargaining stage. now the hearing help has been sought out. Often anger and bargaining intermingles. Hearing aids have been “t; but, why do things sound different? Why is it still dif“cult to understand some people? Why isnt it all perfect?!! Throughout the teamwork with your hearing healthcare provider there will be bargaining.. what is important...what is reality? Its a journey that must be taken with a caring and knowledgeable hearing health care provider. As the journey continues there may come the next stage of Depression. Not all will go through this... or admit to it anyway. It is a rare individual who does not get a little bummed that a part of their anatomy is not up to snuff.Ž Depression is seen with withdrawal from friends and families; especially group environments where it is harder to carry on conversations. With care, knowledge and guidance the last stage of dealing with hearing loss is: Acceptance. Throughout this journey it is discovered what is important to you. What activities are important to you? How do we help you hear that special person with the extra soft voice? Maybe you love music and it has lost its soothing melody. Perhaps you like to go to the movies or just watch some sporting events on TV. Acceptance comes as your brain learns to functions with hearing nerves that you have not used in a while. It is an awakening that will take a little bit of time...but it will come...and life will improve. Take the “rst step. Seek out a quali“ed hearing health care provider. Life is Short. To Hear Better Is To Live Better.Stages of hearing lossHEARING MATTERSRoseann Kiefer adno=3619044-1 Gregg Shore, M.D. Specializing in InterStim Therapy for Incontinence in Highlands County!

I have some people that Im not thrilled with. And I have other people that Im beyond thrilled with,Ž Trump said. Mattis hasnt told meŽ that he plans to leave, Trump said, and didnt directly answer the question of whether hed like the Pentagon chief to quit. I had lunch with him two days ago. I have a very good relationship with him. It could be that he is. I think hes sort of a Democrat, if you want to know the truth,Ž Trump said. He may leave. I mean, at some point, everybody leaves. Everybody. People leave. Thats Washington.Ž Mattis was one of Trumps “ rst Cabinet picks after the 2016 election. He was long seen as a force for stability in foreign policy in an administration that has had to manage crises from North Korea to Syria under a president who prides himself on his unpredictability. But Mattis has been on the defensive after excerpts from author Bob Woodwards book FearŽ depicted the publicly taciturn military man as being critical of Trump in private.Trump suggests that defense secretary may be planning to quit AP PHOTODefense Secretary Jim Mattis speaks to reporters before an enhanced honor cordon with Greek Defense Minister Panagiotis Kammenos at the Pentagon, Tuesday, in Washington. By JON GAMBRELLASSOCIATED PRESSDUBAI, United Arab Emirates „ Saudi Arabia on Sunday threatened to retaliate for any sanctions imposed against it after President Donald Trump said the oil-rich kingdom deserves severe punishmentŽ if it is responsible for the disappearance and suspected murder of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi. The warning from the worlds top oil exporter came after a turbulent day on the Saudi stock exchange, which plunged as much as 7 percent at one point. The statement was issued as international concern grew over the writer who vanished on a visit to the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul over a week ago. American lawmakers threatened tough punitive action against the Saudis, and Germany, France and Britain jointly called for a credible investigationŽ into Khashoggis disappearance. Turkish of“ cials have said they fear a Saudi hit team killed and dismembered Khashoggi, who wrote critically of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The kingdom has called such allegations baselessŽ but has not offered any evidence Khashoggi ever left the consulate. Already, international business leaders are pulling out of the kingdoms upcoming investment forum, a high-pro“ le event known as Davos in the Desert,Ž and the selloff on Riyadhs Tadawul stock exchange showed that investors are uneasy. The exchange dropped by over 500 points, then clawed back some of the losses, ending the day down 264 points, or more than 4 percent. Of 188 stocks traded on the exchange, 179 ended the day with a loss. Something this big would de“ nitely spook Saudis reject threats as stocks plunge after Trump comments By GARY FINEOUTASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE, Fla. „ It was once argued that the trees would help save Floridas Panhandle from the fury of a hurricane, as the acres of forests in the region would provide a natural barrier to savage winds that accompany the deadly storms. Its part of the reason that tighter building codes „ mandatory in places such as South Florida „ were not put in place for most of this region until just 11 years ago. And it may be a painful lesson for area residents now that Hurricane Michael has ravaged the region, leaving sustained damage from the coast inland all the way to the Georgia border. Were learning painfully that we shouldnt be doing those kinds of exemptions,Ž said Don Brown, a former legislator from the Panhandle who now sits on the Florida Building Commission. We are vulnerable as any other part of the state. There was this whole notion that the trees were going to help us, take the wind out of the storm. Those trees become projectiles and ” ying objects.Ž Hurricane Andrew a generation ago razed Floridas most-populated areas with winds up to 165 mph, damaging or blowing apart over 125,000 homes and obliterating almost all mobile homes in its path. The acres of ” attened homes showed how contractors cut corners amid the patchwork of codes Florida had at the time. For example, ” imsy particle board was used under roofs instead of sturdier plywood, and staples were used instead of roo“ ng nails. Since 2001, structures statewide must be built to withstand winds of 111 mph and up; the Miami area is considered a high velocity hurricane zoneŽ with much higher standards, requiring many structures to withstand hurricane winds in excess of 170 mph. Though Michael was packing winds as high as 155 mph, any boost in the level of safety requirements for builders helps a home avoid disintegrating in a hurricane. Tom Lee, a homebuilder and legislator, says past hurricanes have shown time and time again that the stricter codes help. He said during past hurricanes he looked at the damage by plane and could tell if a home was built before the new code. The structural integrity of our housing stock is leaps and bounds beyond what it was,Ž said Lee.Florida Panhandle building codes lagged behind rest of state AP PHOTOSCandace Phillips retrieves personal items from her damaged home in Mexico Beach, Fla., Sunday, in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael. We spent 25 years of our marriage working to get here and were going to stay,Ž said Phillips of her and husbands plans to rebuild.

By AMY GUTHRIEASSOCIATED PRESSMEXICO CITY „ Hundreds more Hondurans have joined a caravan of migrants moving toward the countrys border with Guatemala in a desperate attempt to ” ee poverty and seek new lives in the United States. Dunia Montoya, a volunteer assisting the migrants, said Sunday that the group had grown to an estimated 1,600 people from an initial 160 who “ rst gathered early Friday in a northern Honduras city. Caravan participants planned to spend Sunday night at a community center in the town of Ocotepeque before attempting to cross into Guatemala on Monday. Montoya said many in the group might not be allowed to enter Guatemala because they lack of“ cial identi“ cation documents. The migration began to swell after local media coverage of the initial group whose members had agreed to depart together Friday from a bus station in San Pedro Sula, one of the most dangerous cities in Honduras. Hundreds more soon joined the ranks, wagering a mass exit could improve their chances for getting over borders.

Its unclear what sparked the blaze.Child is first to die in Florida flu seasonTALLAHASSEE (AP) „ Florida health of“cials say a child is the “rst to die during this years ”u season. The Florida Department of Healths Bureau of Epidemiology said in a report that the unidenti“ed child tested positive for in”uenza B and died between Sept. 30 and Oct. 6. The report did not say where the child dead but did say the child was otherwise healthy before getting the ”u. The child had not been vaccinated. In the “rst week of the ”u season, the state had only two ”u or ”u-like outbreaks. One was an unspeci“c strain and the other was strep throat. The Tampa Bay Times reports both strains hit schools in Hillsborough County. State of“cials said those outbreaks did not cause the childs death. No other details were released.Truck driver plunges to death off 80-ft exit rampFORT LAUDERDALE (AP) „ The driver of a semi-truck has died after veering off an exit ramp and plummeting at least 80 feet to his death.

Witnesses heard the children screaming from the water and helped pulled two to safety. The mother and an older child went to rescue the third child and also became caught in the strong current. Fire rescue pulled the two remaining children and Aboukhdair from the water. Aboukhdair was taken to the hospital and died Sunday.

Researchers from Florida Atlantic Universitys Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute are taking take nasal swabs, blood and urine looking for traces of the toxic blue-green algae ( cyanobacteria ) thats been plaguing Florida beaches. Theyre studying possible links between algae toxins and neurological diseases such as Alzheimers and Parkinsons, and potentially liver failure. The study is being funded though social media crowd-sourcing. The News-Press reports toxins from cyanobacteria produces health effects in humans and animals ranging from mild cold-like symptoms to neurodegenerative diseases, but theyre often unreported or misdiagnosed by public health authorities. Harbor Branch researchers say theres no data about human and animal exposure to the blooms. The state health department is not studying potential impacts of exposure. The study will be peer-reviewed after its completed. It could take six months to a year. HEADLINES AROUND THE STATE By GARY FINEOUTASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE „ Floridas 2018 midterm election is one of the most important in years. The governors of“ce and all three Cabinet seats are on the ballot; Republican Gov. Rick Scott is challenging three-term Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson; several congressional seats will be competitive; and Floridians will vote on several proposed constitutional amendments. The following are items of political interest from the past week.AMPED UP ABOUT ADSHurricane Michael this past week ravaged Floridas Panhandle, leading to multiple deaths and leaving a trail of destruction from the coast all the way to the Georgia border. The storm led both Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum and Gov. Rick Scott to shift their primary focus away from day-to-day campaigning. Republican gubernatorial nominee Ron DeSantis and other Republican statewide candidates collected relief supplies and delivered them to Panama City on Saturday. But that did not mean that campaigning ceased throughout the entire state. All the major campaigns continue to blanket the airwaves, although some campaigns did cease some negative ads that were airing in the regions impacted by the storm. And some were crying foul over some of the ads. Scott is running for U.S. Senate and his campaign wrote a letter demanding that television stations take down an ad paid for by Senate Majority PAC. The ad paid by the group supporting U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson faults Scott over education budgets cuts he approved during his “rst year as governor back in 2011. Steve Roberts, an attorney for the Scott campaign, wrote that the ad was falseŽ and misleadingŽ and that airing the ad while the state was dealing with Hurricane Michael diminishes the ability of the states government to communicate emergency safety information to Florida residents.Ž A spokesman for Senate Majority PAC told the Miami Herald this week that the committee stood by the ad. Meanwhile, the campaigns of Gillum and DeSantis traded blows over some of the ads running in their race. The Republican Party of Florida launched a new attack ad that says the Tallahassee mayor is running from an FBI investigation.Ž The FBI is investigating Tallahassee city government, but Gillum has said he is cooperating with the probe and says he is not the target of the investigation. The “rst open knowledge of the probe came in June 2017 when a federal grand jury subpoenaed “ve years of records from Tallahassee and a local redevelopment agency that involved high-pro“le projects and developers, including an ally of Gillum. Gillums campaign “red back with its own ad that featured “ve sheriffs calling the new ad falseŽ and pathetic.ŽSTORM KNOCKS OUT DEBATESHurricane Michael is knocking out some of the debates planned in Floridas two closely watched races. Scott and Nelson were supposed to hold a live debate next Tuesday on CNN. In a statement this past week, the cable network said that both campaigns agreed to the delay so the candidates can focus on response and recovery to the storm. Then Gillum announced late Saturday that he could not resume campaigning for several more days. In a Facebook message, Gillum said he could not leave town as long as thousands of residents remain without power. More than 110,000 customers of the Tallahasseeowned electric company lost power as a result of Hurricane Michaels high winds that brought down hundreds of trees across the city. Late Saturday there were still about 30,000 city customers still in the dark. Gillum was supposed to debate DeSantis on Tuesday in Orlando. There are still two debates between the two candidates scheduled for later this month.Attack ads and debates: The week in Florida politics JOHANNESBURG (AP) „ The International Committee of the Red Cross made an urgent appeal on Sunday to an af“liate of the Islamic State organization in Nigeria to spare the lives of two abducted health workers. The women risk the fate of a colleague who was killed by the extremists last month, the statement said. We urge you for mercy.Ž The global aid organization urged Nigerian authorities and others who might have in”uence to help. Speed and urgency are critical. A deadline that could result in the killing of another health care worker is less than 24 hours away.Ž The three health workers were seized in March in Nigerias northeastern community of Rann, where thousands have sought shelter from the deadly threat posed by Boko Haram extremists and a recent offshoot, the Islamic State West Africa Province group. That organization has grown into the largest IS-linked extremist group in Africa, with a tentativeŽ estimate of 3,500 “ghters, the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point said in a report in August. The killing in September of health worker Saifura Hussaini Ahmed Khorsa led to outrage. She was abducted along with Hauwa Mohammed Liman, who was working in a local hospital supported by the ICRC, and Alice Loksha, a nurse who worked at a center supported by the U.N. childrens agency. Nigerias government has said it continues to press for the release of all held captive by extremists, including Leah Sharibu, a student seized in a mass abduction in February. She remains held while more than 100 of her fellow students were released because she is Christian. Her mother in recent weeks has said her life was in danger. Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, who declared that defeating the extremists was a top priority when he took power in 2015, in recent days sent three Cabinet ministers to meet with the families of Sharibu and the abducted health workers, his of“ce said.Red Cross urges Nigerian militants to spare 2 health workers By RAF CASERT, GREGORY KATZ and JILL LAWLESSASSOCIATED PRESSBRUSSELS „ A ”urry of talks between Britain and the European Union ended Sunday without a Brexit agreement, leaving the two sides three days to close a gap in their positions before a make-or-break summit. An unscheduled, face-toface meeting between EU negotiator Michel Barnier and British Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab, and a hastily scheduled meeting of 27 EU ambassadors in Brussels, had sparked speculation that the long-awaited deal was imminent. Barnier dashed those hopes Sunday evening, writing on Twitter: Despite intense efforts, some key issues are still openŽ in the divorce talks. The key stumbling block remains the need to avoid a hard borderŽ between Ireland and the U.Ks Northern Ireland after Brexit, he said. British Prime Minister Theresa May is under intense pressure from her Conservative Party and its parliamentary allies not to give any more ground in negotiations, especially on the border issue. The British government said in a statement issued Sunday night there were still unresolved issuesŽ but insisted negotiators had made real progressŽ toward a divorce agreement. The lack of a breakthrough on the border increased the chances that the Brexit negotiations will fail to produce an agreement spelling out how the EU will interact with its former member and vice versa. EU of“cials have warned that real progress is needed at the summit starting Wednesday. The British government said it remained committed to making progress at the summit. An EU of“cial said no further negotiations were planned before the leaders of EU countries convene in Brussels. Both sides previously agreed that a special November meeting „ to be called only if there is enough progress this week „would be the deadline for reaching an agreement since Britain is set to leave the EU on March 29. The EU and the U.K. are seeking an elusive compromise position on the dif“cult Irish border question ahead of the summit. The Irish backstopŽ is the main hurdle to a deal that spells out the terms of Britains departure from the EU and future relationship with the bloc. After Brexit, the currently invisible frontier between Northern Ireland and Ireland will be the U.K.s only land border with an EU nation. Britain and the EU agree there must be no customs checks or other infrastructure on the border, but do not agree on how that can be accomplished. Raab, Britains Brexit secretary, was not expected in Brussels on Sunday, but he made a last minute trip for an in-person meeting with Barnier. The EUs backstopŽ solution „ to keep Northern Ireland in a customs union with the bloc „ has been rejected by Britain because it would require checks between Northern Ireland and the rest of the U.K. The alternative „ to keep the entire U.K. in a customs union until a permanent solution can be found „ has outraged pro-Brexit members of Mays divided government, who claim that approach would limit the countrys ability to strike new trade deals around the world. The idea is also anathema to the Democratic Unionist Party, a Northern Ireland Protestant party that props up Mays minority government. So even if May strikes a deal with Brussels, she will struggle to get it past her government and Parliament at home. Raabs predecessor, David Davis, wrote in the Sunday Times that Mays plans for continued close economic ties with the EU even after Britain leaves the bloc is completely unacceptableŽ and must be stopped by her ministers. May is struggling to build a consensus behind her Brexit plans ahead of a Cabinet meeting Tuesday that will be followed by Wednesdays EU summit. If Davis call for a rebellion is effective, the Cabinet meeting is likely to be fractious. Davis and former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resigned from Mays Cabinet this summer to protest her Brexit blueprint. While all three are members of the ruling Conservative Party, the two men have become vocal opponents of Mays plan, saying it would betray the Brexit vote and leave Britain tied to the EU without any say over its rules. Johnson, who regularly uses his newspaper column in the Daily Telegraph to excoriate Mays Brexit plan, said the EUs border backstop amounted to a choice between the breakup of this country or the subjugation of this country, between separation or submission.ŽRound of talks dont resolve Brexit problems ahead of summit AP PHOTOIn this photo taken on Wednesday, a man walks past a section of one of the Northern Ireland peace wallsŽ in Cupar Way, Belfast, Ireland. The land around the small town of Carrickcarnan, Ireland, is the kind of place where Britains plan to leave the European Union walks right into a wall „ an invisible one that is proving insanely dicult to overcome.

The Sun | Monday, October 15, 2018 E/N/C Page 3 DENVER (AP) „ Colorado and Wyoming residents woke up Sunday to “nd that an early season snowstorm had blanketed their homes and roadways with up to a foot of snow and sent temperatures plunging overnight. The storm caused crashes, snarled traf“c and temporarily closed some major highways due to icy conditions. The heaviest snow fell in an area stretching from Boulder, Colorado, through Wyoming to Montanas Beartooth Mountains. The National Weather Service reported snowfall measuring between 3 and 13 inches south of Sheridan, Wyoming, over the last 24 hours. About 3 inches of snow fell in Denver, where the temperature dropped from 60 degrees on Saturday to 20 degrees Sunday morning. A winter weather advisory was issued across the region, with the snow forecast to stop falling Sunday afternoon. An additional 2 inches was expected to fall around Fort Morgan on Sunday morning. Heavy snow was expected to fall in mountainous areas through Monday morning, including includes up to 12 inches forecast to fall on Pikes Peak near Colorado Springs. The storm shut down Interstate 25 at the Colorado-Wyoming state line for nearly 11 hours from Saturday night until Sunday morning. Of“cials temporarily closed parts of major highways in Wyoming and Colorado, including Interstate 80, Interstate 70, U.S. Highway 287, U.S. Highway 85 and U.S. Highway 87. Most were later reopened or set to reopen later Sunday. Transportation of“cials in Wyoming and Colorado reported several crashes, including one that blocked eastbound lanes on I-80 in southeastern Wyoming.

WASHINGTON (AP) „ President Donald Trump is backing off his claim that climate change is a hoax but says he doesnt know if its manmade and suggests that the climate will change back again.Ž In an interview with CBS 60 MinutesŽ that aired Sunday night, Trump said he doesnt want to put the U.S. at a disadvantage in responding to climate change. I think somethings happening. Somethings changing and itll change back again,Ž he said. I dont think its a hoax. I think theres probably a difference. But I dont know that its manmade. I will say this: I dont want to give trillions and trillions of dollars. I dont want to lose millions and millions of jobs.Ž Trump called climate change a hoax in November 2012 when he sent a tweet stating, The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.Ž He later said he was joking about the Chinese connection, but in years since has continued to call global warming a hoax. Im not denying climate change,Ž he said in the interview. But it could very well go back. You know, were talking about over a ... millions of years.Ž As far as the climate changing back,Ž temperature records kept by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show that the world hasnt had a cooler-than-average year since 1976 or a cooler-than-normal month since the end of 1985. Trump, who is scheduled on Monday to visit areas of Georgia and Florida damaged by Hurricane Michael, also expressed doubt over scientists “ndings linking the changing climate to more powerful hurricanes. They say that we had hurricanes that were far worse than what we just had with Michael,Ž said Trump, who identi“ed theyŽ as peopleŽ after being pressed by 60 MinutesŽ correspondent Leslie Stahl. She asked, What about the scientists who say its worse than ever?Ž the president replied, Youd have to show me the scientists because they have a very big political agenda.Ž Trumps comments came just days after a Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued a warning that global warming would increase climaterelated risks to health, livelihoods, food security, water supply, human security and economic growth. The report detailed how Earths weather, health and ecosystems would be in better shape if the worlds leaders could somehow limit future human-caused warming. Citing concerns about the pacts economic impact, Trump said in 2017 that the U.S. will leave the Paris climate accord. The agreement set voluntary greenhouse gas emission targets in an effort to lessen the impact of fossil fuels. On a different topic, Trump told 60 MinutesŽ that hes been surprised by Washington being a tough, deceptive and divisive place, though some accuse the real estate mogul elected president of those same tactics. So I always used to say the toughest people are Manhattan real estate guys and blah, blah,Ž he said. Now I say theyre babies.Ž He said the political people in Washington have changed his thinking. This is the most deceptive, vicious world. It is vicious, its full of lies, deceit and deception,Ž he said. You make a deal with somebody and its like making a deal with „ that table.ŽTrump says climate change not a hoax, not sure of its source LOS ANGELES (AP) „ Twenty-“ve people were taken to hospitals with mostly minor injuries following a series of crashes involving at least two cars and a bus that crashed through a concrete divider on a Los Angeles highway, authorities said. Five patients were in serious condition following the collisions shortly after 1 p.m. that shut down all lanes on Interstate 405 in the citys San Fernando Valley area, Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart said. The 20 others were in fair condition with minor injuries. A total of 40 people were evaluated at the scene, she said. The California Highway Patrol was investigating the cause of the pileup on the key north-south artery. It wasnt immediately known how many people were on the bus or where it was headed. Television news footage showed a white charter bus marked Transit SystemsŽ splayed sideways but upright across southbound lanes in the North Hills neighborhood. Its skid marks indicated it had gone sideways on the northbound side and then through the divider, City News Service reported. The buss front end was crumpled, and emergency window exits were popped open. An SUV next to it had extensive front-end damage. At least one crashed vehicle was in northbound lanes, which were reopened by about 2:30 p.m. The southbound side remained closed hours later, backing up traf“c for miles. Some motorists stuck in their cars walked off the freeway, apparently in search of toilets or drinks, City News Service reported. The patients in serious condition were three women, ages 49, 60 and 88, and two men, ages 30 and 69, Stewart said.

The shooting happened at a childs “rst birthday party Saturday afternoon in Taft, 12 miles (19 kilometers) north of Corpus Christi, the Texas Department of Public Safety said. Sgt. Nathan Brandley said those involved were distant relatives. Authorities did not say what the men were arguing about, but said the shooting occurred in the backyard of a residence. A 20-year-old man was in custody Sunday, Brandley said. The mans 37-year-old father was also a suspect, but he had not yet been arrested, Brandley said. Brandley identi“ed those killed as 62-year-old Juan Espinoza Sr., 20-year-old Juan Sandoval III, 22-year-old Jeremy Sandoval, and 25-yearold Nicky Sandoval. He said the three younger men were Juan Espinoza Sr.s grandsons. The wounded man, 43-yearold Juan Espinoza Jr., was airlifted to a Corpus Christi hospital. Brandley said he was expected to survive.Sheriffs office: Fresno teen kills father to protect motherFRESNO, Calif. (AP) „ Authorities say a Fresno teen fatally shot his father after an argument between his parents turned violent. The Fresno Bee reports Fresno County Sheriffs Of“ce spokesman Tony Botti says the teen is being questioned but will not face charges in the Saturday afternoon shooting at this time. Deputies arrived at 4:30 p.m. to a home and found the 54-year-old man dead. Botti says the teen and his parents were coming home from a family gathering when the argument started. The father had been drinking and allegedly began choking his 49-year-old wife at the home. Botti says the boy then shot the father, and called police.Former sheriffs deputy sentenced for theft from crime scenePUEBLO, Colo. (AP) „ A former Fremont County sheriffs deputy has been sentenced to two years in prison for stealing from the scene of a still-unsolved homicide and arson. Christopher Pape, 30, earlier pleaded guilty to felony evidence tampering and of“cial misconduct and theft for taking nearly $6,000 worth of silver ingots, coins and other items while helping to investigate the May 22 beating death of 76-year-old Kenneth Orchard of Canon City. The Pueblo Chieftain reports Jeanette Orchard said Pape picked up where her fathers robber and killer left off and made it nearly impossible to solve the case. Defense attorney Ryan Roberts said Pape is a good man who made a horrible mistake.Ž The theft was discovered due to differences in crime scene photos. Surveillance video from a pawn shop showed Pape selling some of the items.Utility shuts off power in California countiesSAN FRANCISCO (AP) „ Paci“c Gas and Electric says it will shut off power to about 87,000 customers in parts of more than a dozen Northern California counties. The utility issued a statement Sunday evening saying the move was prompted by extreme “re weather conditions and strong winds. Red ”ag “re warnings hit areas including the East Bay hills in Oakland and Fremont, the hills of Napa and eastern Sonoma counties, the Diablo Range, the North Bay mountains, the Sacramento Valley and the northern Sierra Nevada and Northern Coast Range. The utility says most customers can expect power to be restored on Monday night. Pat Hogan, senior vice president of electric operations, says: Nothing is more important than the safety of our customers and the communities we serve. We know how much our customers rely on electric service, and we have made the decision to turn off power as a last resort given the extreme “re danger conditions these communities are experiencing.Ž Gusty winds were expected Sunday in the hills of the Bay Area. Wind gusts in the higher elevations of the North Bay could reach as high as 50 mph.Services set for Virginia firefighter killed during MichaelRICHMOND, Va. (AP) „ Visitation and memorial services are set for this week for a “re“ghter who was killed while responding to a crash during Tropical Storm Michael. TV station WRIC reports visitations honoring Hanover County Fire Lt. Brad Clark will be held Monday and Tuesday at a funeral home in Richmond. A memorial service will follow on Wednesday in Doswell. Authorities have said Clark died when a tractor-trailer struck a “re engine at the scene of a two-vehicle crash Thursday night. The crash happened during heavy storm conditions. Clarks death is among six fatalities of“cials in Virginia have blamed on Michael. Local media reported Clarks family issued a statement Sunday saying they harbored no ill willŽ toward the tractortrailer driver, who was seriously injured, and were thankful for the communitys support.Georgia senator accused of briefly snatching students phoneATLANTA (AP) „ A Georgia Tech political group says Sen. David Perdue snatched a phone from a student who was video recording while asking the Republican lawmaker a question about Georgias governors race. Young Democratic Socialists of Americas Georgia Tech chapter posted video from the phone after Saturdays incident during Perdues visit to campus. A YDSA news release says the student was trying to ask Perdue about allegations that Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp is working to suppress minority votes. The release says Perdue snatched the phone and held it brie”y behind his back. It was soon returned to the student. In a statement, a Perdue spokesperson said the senator thought he was being asked to take a picture, so he grabbed the phone to take a sel“e. The statement says Perdue returned the phone upon realizing the student didnt want a photo. HEADLINES AROUND THE NATIONNATIONAL NEWS

Be sure to be in church this Sunday. investors, and Saudi just opened up for foreign direct investment, so that was big,Ž said Issam Kassabieh, a “nancial analyst at Dubai-based “rm Menacorp Finance. Investors do not feel solid in Saudi yet, so its easy for them to take back their funds.Ž In an interview scheduled to air Sunday, Trump told CBS 60 MinutesŽ that Saudi Arabia would face strong consequences if involved in Khashoggis disappearance. Theres something really terrible and disgusting about that, if that was the case, so were going to have to see,Ž Trump said. Were going to get to the bottom of it, and there will be severe punishment.Ž But the president has also said we would be punishing ourselvesŽ by canceling arms sales to Saudi Arabia. The sales are a tremendous order for our companies,Ž and if the Saudis dont buy their weaponry from the U.S., they will get it from others, he said. In a statement published by the state-run Saudi Press Agency, the kingdom warned that if it receives any action, it will respond with greater action, and that the kingdoms economy has an in”uential and vital role in the global economy.Ž The kingdom af“rms its total rejection of any threats and attempts to undermine it, whether by threatening to impose economic sanctions, using political pressures or repeating false accusations,Ž the statement said. The statement did not elaborate. However, a column published in English a short time later by the general manager of the Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya satellite news network suggested Saudi Arabia could use its oil production as a weapon. Benchmark Brent crude is trading at around $80 a barrel, and Trump has criticized OPEC and Saudi Arabia over rising prices. If the price of oil reaching $80 angered President Trump, no one should rule out the price jumping to $100, or $200, or even double that “gure,Ž Turki Aldakhil wrote. Its unclear, however, whether Saudi Arabia would be willing to unilaterally cut production. Aldakhil added that Saudi arms purchases from the U.S. and other trade could be at risk as well. The truth is that if Washington imposes sanctions on Riyadh, it will stab its own economy to death, even though it thinks that it is stabbing only Riyadh!Ž he wrote. Prince Mohammed has aggressively pitched the kingdom as a destination for foreign investment. But Khashoggis disappearance has led several business leaders and media outlets to back out of the upcoming investment conference in Riyadh called the Future Investment Initiative. That includes the CEO of Uber, a company in which Saudi Arabia has invested billions of dollars, as well as billionaire Richard Branson. Khashoggi has written extensively for the Post about Saudi Arabia, criticizing its war in Yemen, its recent diplomatic spat with Canada and its arrest of womens rights activists after the lifting of a ban on women driving. Those policies are all seen as initiatives of the crown prince.THREATSFROM PAGE 1The codes call for shatterproof windows, forti“ed roofs and reinforced concrete pillars, among other speci“cations. But it wasnt until 2007 that homes built in the Panhandle more than one mile from shore were required to follow the higher standards. And Hurricane Michael pummeled the region with devastating winds from the sea all the way into Georgia, destroying buildings more than 70 miles from the shoreline. Gov. Rick Scott said it may be time for Florida to boost its standards „ considered the toughest in the nation„ even further. After every event, you always go back and look what you can do better,Ž Scott said. After Andrew, the codes changed dramatically in our state. Every time something like this happens, you have to say to yourself, Is there something we can do better?Ž Mexico Beach, the Gulf Coast town destroyed by Michael, lacked a lot of new or retro“tted construction, said Craig Fugate, the former director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and a former emergency management chief for the state of Florida. The small seaside community had a lot of older mobile homes and low-income year-round residents working in the commercial “shing and service industries. Quiet, idyllic, what I call Old Florida,Ž Fugate said. This is not a bunch of high rises or brand new developments.Ž Bill Herrle, who owned a house near the shoreline in Mexico Beach until it was destroyed by the storm, said he wasnt sure it made a difference when the homes there were built. He said the storm took out his house built in the mid-80s as well as newer buildings put up recently. It wiped out both the older and newer homes. It looks like my entire street is razed,Ž said Herrle, who was not in Mexico Beach during the storm. David Prevatt, an associate professor of civil and coastal engineering at the University of Florida, said in an email Thursday that drone footage of the devastation in Mexico Beach showed structural damage to roofs and exterior walls, and damaged rafters and trusses, indicating the strength of the wind that caused those failures.Ž Prevatt noted the damage could have occurred at wind speeds lower than the 155 mph that the National Hurricane Center reported at Michaels landfall. That is, the homes could have been peeling apart before the eye and the hurricanes strongest core winds came ashore. Prevatt was preparing to lead a team to assess the damage. He said engineers will be asking how old the destroyed and damaged buildings were and under what version of the Florida building codes they were built. They also will be looking at the differences between the structures that survived and those that did not.CODESFROM PAGE 1infants in their arms and toddlers in strollers. They packed light, most carrying little more than a backpack. The caravan formed just one day after U.S. Vice President Mike Pence urged the presidents of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala to persuade their citizens to stay home. Tell your people: Dont put your families at risk by taking the dangerous journey north to attempt to enter the United States illegally,Ž said Pence. U.S. President Donald Trump threatened in April to withdraw foreign aid from Honduras and countries that allowed transit for a similar caravan that set out from the Central American country earlier this year. That caravan dwindled as the group approached the U.S. border, with some giving up along the way and others splitting off to try to cross on their own. Frustration with poverty is a common explanation by migrants for participating in the latest caravan. About 65 percent of Honduras people are poor and many get by on the equivalent of a dollar or two a day. The country of 9.4 million people has also led the world for homicide rates in recent years. Roberto Castro, one of the travelers in the caravan, said via telephone that he is a 26-year-old bus driver and construction worker, when there is work. These days, there is none, he said. Most of the migrants are on foot, walking shoulder-to-shoulder, 15 deep, at the edges of roads. Trucks with empty cargo holds have stopped intermittently to pick some up and get them as far along as possible. Other Hondurans handed out bottled water and food in a show of support. Castro said he grabbed a change of clothes „ a T-shirt and pants „ and joined the group Friday after not hearing for days from the mother of his two young children. He put her and the kids on a bus heading north from San Pedro Sula two weeks ago. He began crying as he described his worry about “nding them at one of the many waystations between Honduras and the U.S. It hurts,Ž he said between tears, because one just wants an opportunity.Ž Mexicos Interior Ministry issued a stern reminder Saturday that Mexico does not issue entry visas for those who dont meet the requirements to transit toward a neighboring country.Ž Also, Mexico said it issues visas at its consulates abroad, not at border entry points.MIGRANTFROM PAGE 1 By MICHAEL BALSAMO and MICHAEL HILLASSOCIATED PRESSAMSTERDAM, N.Y. „ The day after a mourning community said last goodbyes to eight of 20 victims of a limousine crash „ four sisters and four other relatives „ the Senates top Democrat called on federal regulators to formulate new safety standards for the vehicles. Sen. Chuck Schumer on Sunday pointed to glaring gaps in safety data and singled out the National Transportation Safety Board, which he said hasnt thoroughly investigated a limousine crash in three years. His criticism comes a week after the stretch limo loaded with 18 people on their way to a birthday party for one of the occupants ran a stop sign and crashed at the bottom of a hill in the town of Schoharie. Everyone in the limo died, including the four sisters, along with two pedestrians. The sad fact here is that right now everyone is talking about limo safety when we could have been studying it for the past few years,Ž Schumer said. The NTSB knows they need to “x this situation so we can have as much information as possible available.Ž At a news conference, he called on the NTSB to investigate every stretch limo crash that has occurred in the U.S. and use the data to make recommendations for safety standards that would then have to be implemented by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration. The NTSB „ charged by Congress to conduct independent probes and make safety recommendations „ agreed to investigate limo crashes on a case-by-case basis after a 2015 wreck that killed four women on New Yorks Long Island. But since then, Schumer said, multiple crashes should have been investigated and would have netted critical safety dataŽ about the structure and safety components of limousines. Federal crash data compiled by The Associated Press shows there were seven limo crashes in 2015 and two in 2016. Factory-built limousines must meet stringent safety regulations. But luxury cars converted to limos, like the one in last weeks crash, often lack such safety components as side-impact air bags, reinforced rollover protection bars and accessible emergency exits. Few federal regulations govern limos modi“ed after leaving the factory, and regulations often vary by state. Eric Weiss, a spokesman for the NTSB, declined to comment. In a 2015 letter, then-NTSB Chairman Christopher Hart said the board shared Schumers concern that relatively little information is available about how stretch limousines perform in a variety of crash scenarios.Ž Hundreds of mourners and the presiding pastor, the Rev. O. Robert DeMartinis, also sought answers Saturday at a church in Amsterdam at the funeral for Allison King; sister Abigail Jackson and her husband, Adam Jackson; sister Mary Dyson and her husband Robert Dyson; sister Amy Steenburg and her husband Axel Steenburg; and Steenburgs older brother, Richard Steenburg. The question that is in the hearts of so many is: Why?Ž The Rev. O. Robert DeMartinis told mourners. Why did these 20 individuals have to be taken from us so quickly and so unexpectedly?Ž DeMartinis of“ciated in June at the wedding of Amy and Axel Steenburg. It was Amys birthday that was being celebrated at the time of the crash. He recalled them as a laughter-loving couple who made a sign asking wedding guests not to take pictures because we suggest that you live in the moment.Ž While authorities continue to investigate the cause that wreck, New York prosecutors have charged the operator of the limousine company, Nauman Hussain, with criminally negligent homicide, saying he allowed an improperly licensed driver to operate an unserviceableŽ vehicle. Hussain has pleaded not guilty and has declined to comment on the crash.Calls for new regulation as limo crash victims mourned AP PHOTOThis photo shows a church program for a funeral Mass for eight of the 20 people killed in last Saturdays fatal limousine crash.

The Sun | Monday, October 15, 2018 E/N/C Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: What are your thoughts about the security and integrity of patient portals? Almost all of the physicians we see oer them now; some of them pushing their patients to sign up. While we understand that they oer advantages for both the patient and the physician's oce, we have been very reluctant to use them. The main reason is the security of sensitive information and separation from other patients' information. Several years ago, our previous doctor converted his patients' records to electronic format. Shortly thereafter, at an appointment, the doctor reviewed my husband's medical history with him and talked about a condition that had never been diagnosed previously. He maintained that since it was in my husband's record, it had to be correct. We have since transferred to another doctor. „ S.K.A. ANSWER: I would try not to let your bad experience with the electronic medical record keep you from taking advantage of the benets of patient portals. The issue with the mistaken diagnosis in the chart is one that was in existence long before the advent of the EMR. In the era of paper charts, I found mistaken diagnoses and, frankly, incorrect histories in a large number of patient charts. Most physicians have learned that when there is a discrepancy between the chart information and what the patient tells you, the patient is usually correct. We even have a term for it: "chart lore." It is surprising and disconcerting that your husband's former doctor apparently didn't learn that lesson, and it's good he found someone else, and good that the incorrect condition in the chart was identied. That's a paradoxical good outcome from the bad event „ the incorrect information probably was there in the old chart but not recognized as incorrect until your husband identied it. As far as safety, patient portals are as safe as electronic information can be in the modern world. It is a legal disaster for a physician's oce, hospital or insurer to have a security breach, just as it is for a bank containing your nancial information. DEAR DR. ROACH: I hope you can help me. I have had problems sleeping for many years, and I used diphenhydramine to get and stay asleep. Finally, last year I retired (I am 70) and stopped using it and started using two 10 mg melatonin pills to get to sleep. My problem is remembering. I forget almost everything I used to do. I can't remember how to make dishes I would make at the drop of a hat. I can't remember people's names, and I will change things because I can't remember what I was going to do. It is driving me crazy, and my husband is getting very angry with me when I can't remember. Is there something I can do or a supplement I can take to help me get rid of the forgetfulness? „ S.B. ANSWER: Melatonin is a generally safe drug that many people use for sleep. Compared with diphenhydramine, it is probably safer, since diphenhydramine use is clearly associated with falls and motor vehicle accidents the day after using. However, melatonin does have side eects, and the most common reported are headache, confusion and fractured sleep. These are more likely at higher doses, and the dose you are taking is very high. I recommend a dose of 0.5 mg to 1 mg; you are taking 40 times the recommended starting dose. I think it is likely the melatonin is the cause of your symptoms.DEAR ABBY: My husband, "John," recently returned from his fourth Middle East tour after having been gone for a year. As soon as he got back, his mother invited him and his two sisters on a vacation cruise for a week. He said yes, and they'll be leaving in a couple of weeks. The downside is „ no spouses allowed. John and I are in our mid40s. We have been married 25 years. I feel slighted, left out and, frankly, disrespected. I'm not sure how to bring this up to him or to his mom. I don't want to cause my husband, who is currently going through a difcult reintegration process, any stress. And I don't want to cause drama with his mother, who will regard my speaking up as an oense to her gesture for her children. Do I just keep my hurting mouth shut? „ Hurting In The Midwest DEAR HURTING: Because your husband is having a dicult time reintegrating, I do think you should keep your mouth closed. The reason you and the other spouses weren't invited may have been the cost involved. If it wasn't, then Mama may have wanted her "brood" around her and no one else. You say you and your husband have been married 25 years. That would make you a military wife. By denition, military wives are independent. If you feel you will be at loose ends while your husband is with his mother and siblings, I suggest you and other "excluded spouses" plan activities together to pass the time. If you all like each other, you could have a ball. Later, when the time is right, you and your husband could plan a private getaway just for the two of you. DEAR ABBY: Is there such thing as love at rst sight? „ A Penny For Your Thoughts DEAR PENNY: There is such a thing as strong mutual attraction. But love doesn't happen in an instant. Love requires actually getting to know someone. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is about people who choose to remain childless: "Dear Heloise: Years ago, when my husband and I got married in our late 20s, we decided we weren't going to have a family. No, we DON'T hate children. We're simply not 'child-oriented.' People with children keep saying, 'Oh, you don't know what you're missing.' That's true, because you can't miss what you never had. "We applaud those who wanted a family and love their kids, but it just wasn't for us. We're not sorry we decided to skip having children, and we really wish family and friends would stop asking rude questions, such as 'If you didn't want kids, why did you get married?' Parenting isn't for everyone." „ Mike and Tara D., Nashville, Tenn. Mike and Tara, you're right. Lately, more and more couples are remaining childless. „ HeloiseThe integrity and security of electronic patient portals Military husband returns home only leave with mom Childish, childless questionHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby


Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Monday, October 15, 2018 ARIES (March 21-April 19). The concept of closureŽ is a construct. Most things run on a continuum. So while there is no real ending, there also must be an ending, or life becomes too overwhelming to take in. The ritual of nalization will be key today. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Today is another chance at unnished business. The thing you dont want to do will be the thing to do rst. Get it out of the way. Nothing will be harder than beginning. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Socializing will be tricky. You dont want to leave anyone out, but the bigger the group gets the more complicated and dicult the event becomes. How far to take your sense of social responsibility, that is the question. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Even if a person is suggesting something that is in your best interest, if their approach is o, you will resist. Youre not into being controlled. Youre the authority of you, now more than ever. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If a belief is causing you stress, remember that you have many, many choices about what to believe. Also, there are ways to frame the truth to make it more appealing. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It will be appropriate and wise to extend a little blind faith. Even if the other person doesnt exactly deserve the trust, you might be surprised by how people rise to the occasion, and thats a nice kind of surprise to get. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). To say that people dont always use logic to make decisions is to understate things severely. People will use logic to justify their very illogical choices though! SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). What used to seem like a big deal just isnt anymore. Youve grown bigger than the circumstances and therefore youre now more able to give balanced attention to dierent parts of your life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You dont want to upset the apple cart. Its not because youre afraid. Youre receptive to change, though only if you can see the purpose. Strategy takes self-control. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Youre the cheerleader, the encouraging friend, and the condence and morale booster of your group. This kind of support will be invaluable and germane to todays best outcomes. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People can learn new skills all day every day and yet still be in stuck in the same work and life patterns if they dont also know how to implement the learning. A coach will help. Get one or be one. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Youre not waiting around for someone to tell you what to do. Youll see the big picture better than most will. The next move will seem rather obvious, though dont be surprised if you have to point it out. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (Oct. 15). Youre a problem-solver, and youll handle at least a dozen problems of various sizes before the year is over. Youll reach a new level of honesty in a relationship and thats when things get really interesting. More excitement: a cash surplus, the mastery of an old skill and a brief romantic getaway. Sagittarius and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 7, 16, 28 and 34.

Movie guide: Capsule listingsBy LINDSEY BAHRAP FILM WRITERLOS ANGELES „ The Neil Armstrong “ lm First ManŽ settled for a third-place landing at the North American box of“ ce in its opening weekend in theaters. The Ryan Goslingstarrer and a host of newcomers, like the family-friendly GoosebumpsŽ sequel and the neo-noir mystery Bad Times at the El Royale,Ž couldnt unseat last weeks top two “ lms, VenomŽ and A Star Is Born,Ž which again took “ rst and second place. As the month of October careens toward a box of“ ce record, the crowded marketplace can be a blessing or a curse for some “ lms in their “ rst weekends, although the hope is that they will play for weeks to come. Such is the idea for Universal Pictures First Man,Ž which took ” ight over the weekend with everything to its advantage „ prestige, good reviews (88 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), a movie star (Gosling) and an Oscar-winning director (Damien Chazelle). Studios estimated Sunday that First ManŽ earned $16.5 million in ticket sales from 3,640 North American theaters, and $25 million worldwide. That was on par with expectations, but not exactly an eye-popping number for a space epic that cost nearly $60 million to produce. For Universal Pictures president of domestic distribution Jim Orr, the box of“ ce intake for a “ lm like First Man,Ž which primarily appeals to older audiences not inclined to rush out to a movie theater on the “ rst weekend, is going to be a marathon not a sprint.Ž What we know is for these types of adult, fall “ lms for discerning audiences, its not about the opening weekend,Ž Orr said. Were very comfortable that its going to have a long life at the domestic box of“ ce.Ž Audiences for the PG-13 rated First ManŽ were primarily older (52 percent over 35), male (56 percent) and Caucasian (67 percent) and gave the “ lm a B+ CinemaScore. I never expected First Man to have an opening weekend trajectory that was off the charts,Ž said Paul Dergarabedian, the senior media analyst for box of“ ce tracker comScore. The comic book “ lm Venom,Ž meanwhile, continues to belie poor reviews in its second weekend in theaters. Sony Pictures estimated the “ lm added $35.7 million in ticket sales, down 56 percent from its “ rst weekend, to repeat at No. 1. The “ lm has earned $142.8 million to date from North American theaters. On the other end of the critical spectrum, Bradley Coopers A Star Is BornŽ continued to ride a wave of goodwill and awards buzz into its second weekend adding $28 million. With total domestic grosses at $94.2 million, the Warner Bros. pic starring Cooper and Lady Gaga will sail past $100 million in no time. Fourth place went to Goosebumps 2: Haunted HalloweenŽ which took in $16.2 million (down from the “ rst “ lms $23.6 million launch in 2015) while Bad Times At The El RoyaleŽ debuted in seventh place with only $7.2 million. The well-reviewed young adult “ lm The Hate U Give,Ž meanwhile, performed well in its expansion. The drama about a police shooting of a black teenager managed to crack the top 10 playing in only 248 locations, placing ninth with $1.8 million. It expands wide next weekend. And Amazon Studios Timothee Chalamet and Steve Carell addiction drama Beautiful BoyŽ opened on four screens to $221,437. With so many new “ lms at the multiplex, from big budget blockbusters to awards friendly dramas, audiences are helping propel October to record box of“ ce earnings. It also means some movies are getting lost in the shuf” e. There is a relentless onslaught of hits that keep on coming from every genre,Ž Dergarabedian said. People are a little overwhelmed right now. Theres a bevy of riches at the marketplace and some “ lms are going to struggle on opening weekend.Ž Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore.

The Class 6A Region 3 playoff hunt continues to muddy itself up and Friday night added to the uncertainty. Charlotte exposed North Fort Myers to take sole possession of first place in the district, Port Charlotte took care of business against Ida Baker to stay in the race and...Cape Coral Island Coast. Yes, Island Coast got just its second win in two years over a team undefeated in the district to that point that also beat Port Charlotte by two points. WHAT?! To make things weirder, Cape Coral was shut out in the 3-0 loss. Earlier in the season the Seahawks put up 31 points against a very talented Pirate defense. So nothing about that game made any sense. Its going to be a fun few weeks to close out the season, especially in 6A. As it stands now, which will change when the FHSAAs weekly power rankings come out later this week, Charlotte leads the district at No. 4 with North Fort Myers right behind in fifth, though after the loss to the Tarpons on Friday they should fall. Cape Coral came in at No. 7 before the loss and Port Charlotte sat at 13 last week. The Pirates look to see a bump this week after a 56-7 beatdown over Ida Baker. To recap how the playoffs work, the district winner „ at the time Charlotte „ gets an automatic bid to the postseason. Behind the district winner, it goes to the power rankings. The top four non-district winners get the chance to continue their seasons. Talking to Port Charlotte coach Jordan Ingman last week, he was confident in his teams chances in making the playoffs if the Pirates win out. That would mean wins over By JOHN VITTASSUN CORRESPONDENTENGLEWOOD … There are your typical All-Area volleyball captains, and then theres Lemon Bays Caroline Hill. Preceded by a warm demeanor and a comforting smile, Caroline is … well, sweet. With an aura more characteristic of a class president or pediatrician, you wouldnt know that Hill is one of the “ercest outside hitters in southwest Florida. Shes just uplifting. Shes never mad, never yelling,Ž Hills fellow captain and best friend Leanna Kelly said. Shes always encouraging everyone. Even if she gives constructive criticism, nobody ever takes it the wrong way because they know thats not how she means it.Ž With at least two matches remaining in her career, Hill is just the second player in Lemon Bay history to reach 700 kills, 500 digs and 150 blocks. Shes ripped 739 career kills, trailing only 2007 graduate Becca Toor … who went on to “nish third in Winthrop University history in hitting percentage. A four-year starter and two-time captain, Hills worth to the Manta Rays stretches far beyond her accolades. She gets along with everybody,Ž Lemon Bay head coach Pat Auer said. If somebody is making mistakes, shell go up there and tell them to try this or try that. Shes just a great captain. They just all look up to her, even I look up to her.Ž Auer “rst saw Hill play when she was in middle school, a few years before taking over the Manta Rays. Caroline was climbing the ranks with her Venice-based club team known as the Jellys. Her coach told me, Youve got to watch this Caroline girl,Ž Auer recalled. Then the “rst time we saw her hit, we were just like Wow. Shes just phenomenal with everything she does. Shell make a kill and congratulate everyone else.Ž Its that maturity and sel”essness that has endeared Hill as the Manta Rays leader. When asked about her leadership, Hill rattled off the names of the Lemon Bay players that came before her. They were all just very positive leaders and really demonstrated the attitude you want to have on the court,Ž Hill said. As Ive gotten older, Ive learned that thats what being a leader is. You want to take control, but in the right way.Ž Kelly, who was there for Hill back in fourth grade when she cut her face open on some ”oor panels while playing with a tennis ball, was quick to de”ect the credit to where it belongs.By STEVEN WINEAP SPORTS WRITERMIAMI GARDENS, Fla. „ Jason Sanders kicked a 47-yard “eld goal on the “nal play of overtime after Cody Parkey missed a 53-yard try for the Chicago Bears, who blew an 11-point lead in the “nal 16 minutes of regulation and lost to the Miami Dolphins 31-28 Sunday. Miamis Brock Osweiler threw for 380 yards and three touchdowns subbing for Ryan Tannehill, who sat out because of an injured throwing shoulder. Albert Wilson turned two short passes into long touchdowns in the fourth quarter and “nished with 155 yards on six receptions. The Dolphins took the kickoff to start overtime, marched 74 yards and were on the verge of victory when Kenyan Drake fumbled just before crossing the goal line. Eddie Goldman recovered for the Bears, who then drove to the Miami 35. But former Dolphin Parkey was wide right on his attempt with 2 minutes left. Miami (4-2) snapped a twogame losing streak and ended a three-game winning streak for Chicago (3-2). The Bears offense came alive after they trailed 7-0 at halftime. Miami then rallied from a 21-10 de“cit in the “nal 16 minutes of regulation to tie the game twice and force overtime. Mitchell Trubisky threw for 316 DOLPHINS | 7By PAUL NEWBERRYAP SPORTS WRITERATLANTA „ Matt Ryan threw for 354 yards and three touchdowns as the Atlanta Falcons snapped a three-game losing streak, holding off Tampa Bay 34-29 Sunday in Jameis Winstons return as the Buccaneers starting quarterback. The Falcons (2-4) scored on their first three possessions and held off a wild comeback by Tampa Bay (23), avoiding their first 1-5 start since 2007. Winston and the Bucs almost pulled off a miracle on the final play of the game after driving to the Atlanta 21. With no timeouts, the quarterback took the snap and tried to surprise the Falcons by taking off up the middle of the field. When he was about to be tackled at the 10, he pitched the ball toward receiver Adam Humphries, who couldnt hang on. The ball skipped to Mike Evans, who blindly flung it in the direction of DeSean Jackson at the 5. Jackson mightve had a chance to dive for the end zone, but he couldnt come up with another bouncing ball. It hopped out of bounds to end the game. Jackson ripped off his helmet, kicked the pylon in disgust and headed straight for the locker room. Winston threw for 395 yards and four TDs but also had a pair of interceptions, one a deep ball that was picked off at the Atlanta 1 as well as a deflected pass in the end zone that ricocheted high in the air and was grabbed by Brian Poole to deny another scoring chance. Ryans three TD passes gave him 274 in his career, passing Joe Montana for 16th on the career list. Falcons coach Dan Quinn made a gutsy call with just over a minute remaining, sending on Matt Bryant to attempt a 57-yard field goal with Atlanta clinging to a 31-29 lead. Bryants kick just cleared the crossbar, extending the Falcons lead.

By Tania GanguliLOS ANGELES TIMES (TNS)LOS ANGELES „ Last week, when former Los Angeles Lakers great Shaquille ONeal thought back to the legacies of Phil Jackson and the late Tex Winter, he remembered the routine. We did the same thing every day, came in, yoga, stretching, meditation, walk through triangle offense, practice, talk about it afterward,Ž ONeal said recently. The triangle offense has faded into the franchises past, but Lakers coach Luke Walton was part of those teams that followed that schedule and meditation is part of his daily life. And just because the Lakers added one of the best players ever this summer doesnt mean meditation has left the organization. Early in training camp, Walton brought in a specialist to lead the team through a session. Meditation is a practice that keeps one focused on the present, not on the past or future. That will be a critical skill for the Lakers this season. The future might be tempting to consider, the past might be easy to indulge, but the present matters more than anything else. The LeBron James edition of the Lakers must meld together, their young players must develop, and the franchises future will depend on what happens now. We expect to have a special season, we just have to put it all together, come together, but were not looking toward next summer or next season „ were into this season,Ž general manager Rob Pelinka said. We still have some work to do. We know what our plan is and were going to stick to that plan. But were not thinking about it right now. Were into this moment because we feel like we can do something very special.Ž Every day of practice this preseason, Walton has faced a luxury and a challenge. For the “rst time in his coaching tenure, his effort isnt so heavily focused on just the youngest players in the league. It has meant that he can go faster as he teaches the system. But he has to be careful not to go too fast. It doesnt make sense for us to move forward unless at least a majority of guys have a good feel for it so that we can execute that on the court,Ž Walton said. For the last two seasons, Waltons mission has been relatively simple. It was his job to develop a group of young players however he could to maximize their talent. Whether or not they were part of the Lakers future, those players development was critical. Either theyd remain and improve the team or theyd become attractive prospects for deals with other teams. Players like DAngelo Russell, Larry Nance Jr. and Jordan Clarkson became assets that helped the Lakers clear salary cap space and make the way for signing James. This year, that has changed. The Lakers mission on the court is twofold. They still have young players who need development „ Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart and Lonzo Ball, as well as rookies Moe Wagner, Svi Mykhailiuk and Isaac Bonga. But now they have veterans who can be reasonably saddled with expectations. This seasons team expects to be in the playoffs. They added James to a team that won 35 games and “nished 11th in the Western Conference. They added players with mercurial personalities but experience, knowledge and skills. JaVale McGee won a championship last season with Golden State, handling a heavy responsibility of slowing James in the NBA Finals. Rajon Rondo won a championship 10 years ago, but last season he was the point guard on a playoff team in New Orleans that pulled off a “rst-round upset of Portland. Lance Stephenson, who has played his best in the comfort of Indiana, has brought an enthusiasm and toughness to Lakers games that is becoming contagious. I de“nitely feel like the group of guys we put together, they can be the equivalent of the Bad Boys Detroit team,Ž McGee said. Its just a bunch of guys that will hit you in the mouth “rst and if they get hit in the mouth theyre not backing down.Ž As their play complements James, they might help the Lakers end a “ve-year playoff drought. They can also teach the younger players by example. You can tell that when me and Rondo are ciphering through our Rolodex of mental basketball capacity that those guys are like, OK, what are you all talking about?Ž James said. What are you all thinking about?

He is sitting here saying, Okay, if Im going to be up here, given this chance, I am going to give it my best. He is really using his speed to his advantage, which is creating a lot of opportunities for us, either drawing penalties or opportunities for himself. When youre doing that, it is just an added weapon in the arsenal. He rightfully deserves a spot in this lineup.Ž Joseph, who didnt have a point against the Blue Jackets, has played on the third line with Alex Killorn and Anthony Cirelli. Their line is the only one that has not experienced any changes through the first three games. By TOM CANAVANAP SPORTS WRITERNEWARK, N.J. „ Kyle Palmieri scored two goals for the third straight game and the New Jersey Devils rallied from their “rst de“cits of the season to beat the San Jose Sharks 3-2 on Sunday. Jean-Sebastien Dea capped the two-goal, third-period outburst with the game winner at 3:25 and Keith Kinkaid made 37 saves as the Devils started the season with three straight wins for the second straight year. Joe Pavelski and Timo Meier scored for the Sharks, who are heading home after a “ve-game road trip. Martin Jones made 33 saves as San Jose lost to New Jersey for the third time in its last 11 games. Palmieri, who had 24 goals last season, scored on a rebound in the crease 37 seconds into the third period to tie the game. After Kinkaid made a save in close minutes later, Dea stuffed a loose puck into the net after Jones let a shot by former Sharks defenseman Mirco Mueller slip between his pads. Logan Couture hit a goal post shortly after the goal, and Kinkaid made the lead stand late, holding off two late San Jose power-play chances. After a scoreless opening period, the Sharks took a 1-0 lead when Pavelski slammed home the rebound of a Brent Burns shot at 3:51 of the second period. It was Pavelskis 700th NHL point. Palmieri tied the game at 7:06 with shot from the left circle with the Sharks playing two men short. Meier put San Jose ahead with 4:25 left in the second period with a shot from the left circle on a quick counter attack.NOTES John Hynes coached his 249th game with the Devils, moving in third place in team history. Coincidently, he moved out of a tie with Pete DeBoer, the current Sharks coach. Sharks were 2-2-1 on road trip. Sharks F Evander Kane, who had four goals in the “rst “ve games, got his “rst assist of season on Pavelskis goal.

The Sun | Monday, October 15, 2018 SP Page 3 Shes naturally a leader,Ž Kelly said. She said she learned it, but shes a liar. It just comes to her. Shes just always looking out for other people before herself. Shes just trying to better everybody around her and then herself.Ž Carolines bond with her teammates did not have to be as strong as its become. Shes the best player on the team, and that could have been good enough, given that she doesnt even attend classes at Lemon Bay. But she made it a point to be their leader and make her teammates better on and off the court. Hill attends Florida Southwestern Collegiate High School in Punta Gorda, where she is dual-enrolled on the college campus. Shell graduate with a bundle of college credits, a 4.3 GPA and a 32 on her ACT. Shes already adapted to a university-style schedule of classes that includes online courses and a college syllabus. I really want to go to the University of Florida,Ž Hill said. If youve ever watched those girls,Ž she said smiling. I dont really know if (volleyball) would be in my future. I dont want to go to a small school just so I can play volleyball. Id rather go to UF, have that college experience and be able to focus on my career.Ž While academics may be Hills focus at the college level, she wanted to play volleyball in high school, and she wanted to do it for Lemon Bay. I went to L A Ainger Middle School, which is where all the kids from Lemon Bay go,Ž Hill said. My older siblings played sports there, my dad went there. All my friends from LA Ainger were going there, so it was just a way to stay connected with all my friends.Ž Hills opportunity to play for the Manta Rays was due in part to her brother, Jon. The Hill family lives just over the border in Sarasota County, and their address meant that Jon and Caroline would have to play for Venice. But Hills mother teaches in Charlotte County and Jon and Caroline attended school there. After petitioning the FHSIAA in 2011, Jon was granted permission to follow his fathers legacy and play for Lemon Bay. Caroline … now also eligible to suit up in orange and blue „ made varsity as a freshman but had to face the dif“cult logistical challenge of commuting to Punta Gorda for school only to hustle back towards Englewood for practice. In ninth and tenth grade, I had to get on the bus at LA Ainger Middle School at 6:20 in the morning, so I was starting my day very early,Ž said Hill. I wasnt really used to that hectic schedule.Ž During volleyball season, Caroline routinely endured 12-14 hour days depending on whether her team had a game. Her ride home from school wouldnt get her to Lemon Bay until 3 pm, making her 30 minutes late to practice every day. When she walked in (to practice), the dynamic just changed,Ž Auer said. She brings it. Shes the captain and MVP for two years now. I think her hitting and passing has gotten better and better. Shes one of the few players that play all the way around.Ž Once more of a physical presence in the middle, Hill now passes and defends almost as effectively as she hits. But in the end, Hills legacy wont be headlined by numbers. Her teammates, coaches and classmates will remember her for her grace and leadership. Her career aspirations are no surprise. I always thought I wanted to be a nurse,Ž said Hill. The older I get, I want to go even further than that. Im thinking either a pediatric nurse practitioner or working in dermatology.Ž Auer said he doesnt believe Hill realizes how good she is. Her aspirations off the court are high, but her intelligence and work ethic might be even greater. Shes even motivated her best friend to follow in her footsteps. When you say, Shes my other half „ its real life,Ž Kelly said. Caroline is always guiding me in the right direction. I want to go to Florida and become a PA so we can work together. That would be ideal.Ž No matter what she does, Hill will heal, improve and inspire those around her „ and that carries a lot of more value than a kill or a dig.STARFROM PAGE 1By BEN BAUGHSPORTS EDITORIts about winning in the classroom and on the field. The Charlotte Tarpons boys soccer team was recently recognized for academic excellence by the United Soccer Coaches, with its National Team Academic Award, for distinguishing themselves in the classroom, posting a cumulative 3.38 GPA. Its very exciting, I think as coaches, especially at the high school level, you definitely have to put an emphasis on student-athletes, and the student part,Ž said Greg Winkler, Charlotte Tarpons boys soccer coach. Theres usually a strong correlation between success and the academic GPA a team possesses.Ž A strong academic foundation has played a role in some of Winklers most successful teams. Those student-athletes possess the ability to think out of the box, demonstrate far greater creativity, are able to prioritize, understanding the importance of balancing athletics and academics, and have a tendency to make better decisions off the field, said Winkler. Its hard to develop a team when youre worried about if the kids are eligible or not,Ž said Winkler. Success in the classroom, is suggestive of the character of the players, and that theyre putting in the necessary effort to maintain their grades, and that will transfer over to the sport that theyre playing, said Winkler. Im excited about the United Soccer Coaches award, its one of the things they recognize,Ž said Winkler.ŽIve been really excited about the boys whove been showing up for our preseason stuff, their respectfulness and work ethic and the goals theyve set for themselves.

The Lemon Bay High School graduate has been a top offensive threat for the Southeastern University womens team. Through 13 games, including 11 starts, the redshirt freshman center forward has 10 goals and 11 assists to rank second on the squad and fourth in The Sun Conference in points. Shes been healthy and has been allowed to come on and shine for us,Ž said head coach Randy Belli, citing her Achilles tendon ailments during a 2017 redshirt season. Rusher had a season-high three goals and added two assists during an August win over Point University. She had a season-high three assists along with two goals in an October victory over Florida Memorial. Although the squad sometimes moves the offense via the long ball to the wings, most of the time the players rely on possession to mount attacks. Weve tried to build through the line,Ž Belli said. Most of the time the balls kept on the ground and worked through the line.Ž Rusher has scored in seven games and assisted in six. Im not the one to run on through super quick,Ž she said. The speed she doesnt have, she makes up for in other ways. During the summer, she said she practiced daily with her father and brother. The summer is meant for improving “tness and feeling comfortable on the ball,Ž she said. As a result, Belli said, she reported to camp in much better condition. Her high soccer IQ helps, too. Summers understanding of the game is a very high level,Ž he said. She puts herself in really good position to “nish.Ž Shes very good with both feet,Ž he said. Her vision is fantastic.Ž Rusher has been a playmaker for teammates, 15 of whom had at least one or more points entering today. Her biggest improvement has been my movement off the ball trying to get into spaces,Ž she said, adding that she becomes an extra option to get them (teammates) out of troubleŽ if they have opponents crowding them for possession of the ball.

Page 4 SP The Sun | Monday, October 15, 2018By JIMMY GOLENAP SPORTS WRITERBOSTON (AP) „ David Price was good enough, the Red Sox bullpen was even better, and Jackie Bradley Jr. delivered a goahead, three-run double off the Green Monster on Sunday night to lead Boston to a 7-5 victory over the Houston Astros and tie the AL Championship Series at one game apiece. Price fell one out short of his “rst career postseason win as a starter but still went back to the winning clubhouse for the “rst time in 11 playoff starts. Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel gave up an RBI single to Jose Altuve with two outs in the ninth before Alex Bregman hit a ”yball that was caught on the warning track in left “eld to end it, handing Houston its “rst loss in “ve playoff games this year. Game 3 is Tuesday in Houston, followed by two more at Minute Maid Park and a chance for the defending World Series champion Astros to clinch a second straight AL pennant at home. Price was spotted a tworun lead in the “rst inning and then fell behind 4-2 before Bradley clanged one off the Monster that Astros left “elder Marwin Gonzalez helplessly chased as it bounced back toward the in“eld. Price left with a 5-4 lead after walking Tyler White on four pitches with two out in the “fth, his second walk of the inning; in all, the Red Sox left-hander was charged with four runs on “ve hits and four walks, striking out four. Matt Barnes struck out Gonzalez to end the inning and then pitched a perfect sixth to earn the victory. Ryan Brasier pitched a scoreless inning and erstwhile starter Rick Porcello set the Astros down 1-2-3 in the eighth. Kimbrel retired the “rst two batters in the ninth, then George Springer hit his second double of the game. Altuve followed with a drive off the left-“eld wall, stopping at “rst when he slipped rounding the bag. Bregman launched a high ”y to left that Andrew Benintendi caught a step in front of the Monster. Gerrit Cole, who was so dominant in his Division Series start against Cleveland, gave up a double to Mookie Betts „ the “rst batter of the game „ as Boston sent eight batters to the plate in the “rst. Benintendi singled to score Betts and scored himself on a single by Rafael Devers, who was making his “rst appearance of the series. The AL Central champs tied it in the second on Springers two-run double down the right-“eld line. And when Gonzalez cleared the Monster „ and the seats above them „ with a two-run homer in the third, it looked like Price was headed for his 10th straight loss as a playoff starter (he has won two postseason games in relief.) But Boston, which won the AL East and a franchise-record 108 games, came back in the bottom half, starting with Xander Bogaerts one-out single and then a double that sent Gonzalez crashing back-“rst into the metal scoreboard on the left-“eld wall. He fell to the warning track, but after the training staff and manger AJ Hinch went out to check on him he stayed in the game. Cole walked Devers on four pitches to load the bases and struck out Ian Kinsler on three pitches before Bradley lofted one down the left-“eld line and off the Monster. As the ball bounced back toward the in“eld, it hopped on the padding along the side wall, just out of Gonzalezs reach. Betts scored an insurance run in the seventh, walking to lead off the inning and coming around to make it 6-4 on a wild pitch and a pair of passed balls. He gave Boston a 7-4 lead with an RBI double in the eighth.COLE SHOULDERCole was 15-5 in the regular season and shut down the Cleveland in Game 2 of the ALDS, when he struck out 12 and walked none to join Hall of Famer Tom Seaver as the only pitchers in postseason history to strike out a dozen or more without walking anyone. It was the “rst-ever postseason matchup of No. 1 overall draft picks, with Price going “rst to Tampa Bay in the 2007 draft and Cole the top pick by Pittsburgh in 2011.PRICE IS RIGHTPrice had been 0-9 in his “rst 10 career postseason starts, and his teams had lost all 10 „ the longest such losing streak in baseball history. He allowed three runs and got just “ve outs in Game 2 against the Yankees, the only Red Sox loss in the series. He seemed to be headed in the same direction falling behind 4-2 after three innings, but retired the Astros in order in the fourth on 10 pitches. In the “fth, he walked Bregman with one out and then, with two outs, he walked White. As manager Alex Cora came out to get him, Price had an animated talk with his in“eld on the mound „ a pep talk? Just venting? Who knows? As Price left the “eld, the crowd rose to applaud the pitcher they booed off the mound in Game 2 of the Division Series, and he tapped the brim of his cap.HOMER HAPPYIt was Houstons 14th straight postseason game with a homer, breaking the major league record that had been held by the Astros from 2001-04. RIDICULOUS REPLAYThe game skidded to a halt in the sixth inning after Jackie Bradley Jr. was tagged out by catcher Martin Maldonado on a nubber in front of the plate. Bradley never left the box, and claimed that the ball hit him, which would make it a foul ball. After a lengthy review for a rules check, Bradley resumed his at-bat. He ”ied out to right “eld on the next pitch/UP NEXTDallas Keuchel, who was 12-11 with a 3.74 ERA in the regular season, will start Game 3 for Houston. With Porcello pitching in relief on Sunday, the Red Sox are expected to start Nathan Eovaldi on Tuesday. By BETH HARRISAP SPORTS WRITERLOS ANGELES (AP) „ Dodgers manager Dave Roberts came into the postseason willing to let his starters go deeper into games. He has yet to find someone who can stick around. Hyun-Jin Ryu lasted 4 1/3 innings in Game 2 against the Milwaukee Brewers. Ace Clayton Kershaw managed just three innings in Game 1. Now, its Walker Buehlers turn. The rookie takes the ball on Monday night at Dodger Stadium, where he was 4-3 with a 1.93 ERA in 13 games (12 starts) during the regular season. Obviously threw the ball pretty good at home. But thats what youre supposed to do. You protect your home field,Ž Buehler said Sunday. Obviously 50,000 Dodger fans behind you doesnt hurt. And sleeping in the same city that youre going to play in and not having to fly anywhere is big.Ž The teams traded one-run victories in the first two games in Milwaukee, sending the series back to Los Angeles for Games 3, 4 and 5. Buehler made his postseason debut in the NL Division Series at Atlanta. The right-hander got tagged for five runs in the second inning of a 6-5 loss. He settled down after that in a five-inning outing. You could say that there was a little bit of nerves and anxiety, but that happens,Ž Buehler said. My first time there, I think I handled it fine. My heartbeat, I felt good with. I was more upset about kind of the decision to throw certain pitches.Ž Buehler has drawn comparisons to Kershaw based on his throwing ability, results and competitiveness. The 24-year-old rookie always projects an image of calm, and hes not one to dwell on a clunker. I know what happened and I was there, so Im more of a positive feedback guy,Ž he said. The only games I want to watch are the good ones and move forward and stick with what I have.Ž What Buehler had in the NL tiebreaker game was very good. He tossed one-hit ball into the seventh inning of Los Angeles 5-2 victory over Colorado that gave the Dodgers a record sixth consecutive division title. He retired his first six batters in the scoreless outing. Thats the version of Buehler that Roberts wants to see against a Brewers lineup featuring Christian Yelich, Ryan Braun and Jesus Aguilar. But if Buehler doesnt last long, Roberts already knows what hes got in his bullpen. Our guys have performed really consistent for me,Ž Roberts said. Weve talked about September 1 started our playoff run, and theyve been very successful, giving us a chance to hold our team within striking distance, have given us a chance to win games late.Ž The Dodgers rallied late in the first two games in Milwaukee, scoring four runs in the eighth and ninth of Game 1 only to lose 6-5 and scoring a combined four runs over the seventh and eighth to win 4-3 in Game 2. For Brewers starter Jhoulys Chacin, Game 3 is a return to the scene of his teams worst loss of the season. He was charged with nine runs „ eight earned „ and five hits in a 21-5 rout on Aug. 2. Cody Bellinger hit a grand slam off the 30-year-old righthander, who lasted just 4 1/3 innings. It wasnt my best game there, but during the season you got one or two bad games,Ž Chacin said. I know people might talk about that a lot. But Im just going to go out, just try to give my team a chance to win the game and just have fun.Ž The Dodgers belted six other homers in that game: two each by Joc Pederson and Yasiel Puig, and solo shots from Justin Turner and Brian Dozier. Chacin rebounded on short rest against Colorado in Game 2 of the NLDS, pitching five scoreless innings. Jhoulys is a true competitor, and hes out on the mound thinking of ways to beat you,Ž Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Sunday. Hes got a number of different tricks in his bag, so to speak, that he goes to get outs, and I enjoy that. Its gamesmanship, its competitiveness, its creativity on the mound.Ž NL MVP contender Yelich returns to his home state looking to be a factor in the series. He is 1 for 8 with two walks in the first two games and hit into a game-ending groundout with the tying run in scoring position on Saturday. Im confident were going to see a big hit from Christian in the next couple of days,Ž Counsell said. The Brewers held an optional workout Sunday in Los Angeles. The off day allowed both managers to reset their bullpens after the teams used a combined 27 pitchers in the first two games. The Dodgers used 14, while the Brewers went through 13. Jhoulys is capable of going deep into the game, and thats ideal,Ž Counsell said. But I think you also have to watch the game and see whats going on. Well be fresh tomorrow and ready to go, so thats good.ŽBy MARC TOPKINTAMPA BAY TMESWe told you in Sundays Tampa Bay Times that Rays coach Rocco Baldelli was a hot nameŽ for the six current managerial openings, and had already been connected with the Blue Jays, Rangers and Twins.

Page 6 SP The Sun | Monday, October 15, 2018 CINCINNATI (AP) „ James Conner ran for 111 yards and a pair of touchdowns on the eve of LeVeon Bells possible return, and Antonio Brown turned a short pass into a 31-yard touchdown with 10 seconds left as the Pittsburgh Steelers pulled off another improbable comeback in Cincinnati, beating the Bengals 28-21 on Sunday. The Steelers (3-2-1) have won eight in a row against their AFC North rival, three times rallying in the “nal minute at Paul Brown Stadium to keep it going. After Joe Mixons 4-yard touchdown run with 1:18 left got the Bengals (4-2) thinking this might “nally be the time they end the streak, Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers stunned them again. Brown caught a short pass and outran the secondary for the winning score, leaving thousands of Steelers fans twirling their towels in the stands. The Steelers are 16-2 at Paul Brown Stadium during Marvin Lewis 16 seasons as Bengals coach, including a pair of playoff wins. Same outcome as usual. This one ended with a brief scuf”e after Andy Daltons “nal pass fell incomplete, leaving him 3-12 all-time against Pittsburgh.RAVENS 21, TITANS 0NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) „ The Ravens piled up a franchise-record 11 sacks in the rain. ZaDarious Smith had three sacks and Patrick Onwuasor had two for the Ravens (4-2), who had six sacks by halftime. They “nished a sack off the NFL record for a game, shared by “ve teams. Dean Pees and the Titans simply couldnt stop his old team as the Ravens outgained Tennessee 361-106 and punted only once against a defense led by their former defensive coordinator. Pees came out of a short retirement to join “rst-year head coach Mike Vrabel. Joe Flacco threw for 238 yards and a touchdown for Baltimore. Alex Collins scored on TD runs of 13 and 2 yards. The Titans (3-3) lost their second straight and were shut out at home for the “rst time since moving into Nissan Stadium in 1999. Tennessee has not scored a touchdown in eight straight quarters. The Ravens couldnt have looked much better handing Tennessee its “rst shutout since Nov. 28, 2010.RAMS 23, BRONCOS 20DENVER (AP) „ Todd Gurley rushed for a career-high 208 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries and the Rams celebrated Wade Phillips homecoming. The Rams, who had surrendered 31 points in back-to-back games, improved to 6-0 in sending the Broncos (2-4) to their fourth straight loss. The Broncos pulled to 23-20 on Case Keenums 1-yard dart to Demaryius Thomas with 1:22 remaining, capping a 77-yard drive that included three defensive penalties. Rams receiver Robert Woods, however, knocked Brandon McManus onside kick out of bounds, and the Rams ran out the clock with Jared Goff (14 of 28 for 201 yards) twice taking a knee.JETS 42, COLTS 34EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) „ Jason Myers kicked a franchise-record seven “eld goals, Sam Darnold threw two touchdown passes, and the Jets held on to win consecutive games for the “rst time in more than a year. Morris Claiborne returned the “rst of three interceptions thrown by Andrew Luck for a touchdown as the Jets (33) moved to .500 by taking advantage of mistakes by the short-handed Colts (1-5), who lost their fourth straight. With Joe Namath and the 1968 Super Bowlwinning team celebrating its 50th anniversary, Darnold was 24 of 30 for 280 yards, with TD throws to Terrelle Pryor and Chris Herndon and an interception to give New York its “rst back-to-back victories since taking three in a row in Weeks 3-5 last season.TEXANS 19, BILLS 14HOUSTON (AP) „ Johnathan Josephs 28-yard interception return for a touchdown with 1:23 remaining lifted the Texans. Houston trailed by three when Phillip Gaines was called pass interference on Will Fuller in the end zone with 2 minutes remaining, moving the Texans 41 yards to the 1-yard line. But the Texans (3-3) lost 7 yards on three plays, capped by an incomplete pass intended for Ryan Grif“n that Matt Milano knocked down to force Houston to kick. A 27-yard “eld goal by Kaimi Fairbairn tied it with 1:34 remaining. Two plays later, Joseph stepped in front of a pass from backup Nathan Peterman intended for Kelvin Benjamin and dashed untouched into the end zone to put the Texans on top and help them avoid their third straight overtime game.VIKINGS 27, CARDINALS 17MINNEAPOLIS (AP) „ Latavius Murray helped the Minnesota Vikings revive their running attack with 155 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries, wearing down the Cardinals. Even Kirk Cousins joined the fun for the Vikings (3-2-1) with an option-style run across the goal line in the third quarter, before throwing to Adam Thielen for a score on the following possession. Thielen had 11 receptions for 123 yards, his sixth straight 100-yard game to become the “rst player in the NFL since 1961 to start a season with a streak that long. Thielens 58 catches are the most in league history through six games.SEAHAWKS 27, RAIDERS 3LONDON (AP) „ Russell Wilson threw for three touchdowns, including one off a botched snap in the second quarter. Chris Carson rushed for 59 yards and rookie Rashaad Penny gained an additional 43 for the Seahawks (3-3), who played to a vociferously supportive crowd „ a London-record 84,922 were in attendance „ despite the Raiders (1-5) being the designated home team. Oakland quarterback Derek Carr left with an apparent left arm injury with 8:52 remaining in the fourth quarter after the last of his six sacks and did not have the chance to return before the Seahawks ran out the clock.REDSKINS 23, PANTHERS 17LANDOVER, Md. (AP) „ Josh Norman bounced back from his prime-time benching by intercepting former teammate Cam Newton and forcing a fumble. Norman ended his 19game interception drought by catching a jump ball thrown by Newton on a third-and-long play early in the second quarter, his “rst pick since Dec. 24, 2016. Norman also popped the ball out of Panthers rookie receiver D.J. Moores hands in a showcase performance against the team that abruptly cut ties with him after his All-Pro 2015 season. Newton threw for 275 yards and two touchdowns on 27 of 40 passing and rushed for 43 yards in a turnover-marred loss. He engineered a late drive that got the Panthers to the Washington 16-yard line, but threw incomplete on second, third and fourth downs to seal the loss.CHARGERS 38, BROWNS 14CLEVELAND (AP) „ Philip Rivers threw two touchdown passes to Tyrell Williams „ the veteran quarterback threw a block „ and Melvin Gordon had three TD runs as the Chargers banged around rookie Baker May“eld and the Browns. The 36-year-old Rivers continued one of the best starts of his 15-year career, leading the Chargers (4-2) to their third straight win. Rivers “nished 11 of 20 for 207 yards and had only one mistake, an interception midway through the fourth quarter. San Diego did most of its damage on the ground, with Gordon running for 132 yards and scoring on runs of 4, 10 and 11 yards.Steelers shock Bengals in final seconds, 28-21 AP PHOTOPittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown runs for a touchdown in the second half of an NFL football game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Sunday, Oct. 14, 2018 in Cincinnati.

The Sun | Monday, October 15, 2018 SP Page 7 yards and three second-half touchdowns, but the Bears were hurt by two turnovers in the red zone. Jordan Howard lost a fumble at the 1, and Trubisky was intercepted in the end zone by T.J. McDonald. Trubisky then threw a 29-yard pass to Anthony Miller for a go-ahead score late in the fourth quarter, but Miami needed only one play to tie it again, with the dynamic Wilson weaving through the secondary for a 75-yard score. Wilson earlier scored on a 43-yard catch and run. Chicagos Tarik Cohen scored on a 21-yard run and had a long catch and run. Kyle Fuller had two interceptions, the second of which set up a Bears touchdown. But Miami contained the Bears Khalil Mack, ending his streak of at least one sack and one forced fumble in every game this season. Miami netted 541 yards without Tannehill, who had been nursing a shoulder injury for several weeks. He worked out before the game, and it was then decided he should sit. Frank Gore rushed for 101 yards. Osweiler, who signed with Miami as a free agent in March, went 28 for 44 and overcame two interceptions.INJURY REPORTDolphins : Miami had two defensive ends inactive and lost Jonathan Woodard in the second quarter with a possible concussion.

Calvin Ridley, who was leading the Falcons with six touchdown catches, went out in the first half with an ankle injury and didnt return. Mohamed Sanu was sidelined in the second half with a hip problem. The loss of two receivers forced the Falcons to give more playing time to Justin Hardy, Marvin Hall and Russell Gage. Also, defensive tackle Jack Crawford, who was filling in for injured Grady Jarrett, left briefly with a head and neck problem. After being checked out, he was able to return to the game for Atlanta. The Bucs lost defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, who walked slowly off the field in the fourth quarter with an undisclosed injury.

RUSSOAP COLLEGE FOOTBALL WRITERAfter four of the top eight teams lost, The Associated Press college football poll had a new look behind No. 1 Alabama, with Ohio State reaching No. 2, LSU jumping back to No. 5 and Michigan moving into the top 10 for the first time this season. The Crimson Tide received all but one of the 61 first-place votes from the media panel Sunday, with Ohio State receiving the other. No. 3 Clemson and No. 4 Notre Dame also moved up a spot. LSU jumped eight after handing Georgia its first loss of the season. The Bulldogs slipped from No. 2 to No. 8. No. 6 Michigan has its best ranking of the season after blowing out Wisconsin and Texas is up two spots to No. 7. No. 9 Oklahoma moved back into the top 10 while idle and Central Florida remained No. 10. POLL POINTSEight ranked teams overall lost Saturday, including three previously unbeaten teams. Joining Georgia among the previously undefeated on Saturday were West Virginia and Colorado.UPAll the losses up and down the rankings meant plenty of movement. Joining LSU and Michigan as teams that gained at least four spots were: „ No. 12 Oregon jumped “ve after beating Washington in overtime. The Ducks have their best ranking since September 2015. „ No. 17 Texas A&M moved up “ve after edging South Carolina on the road. „ It was a good week to be idle and watch teams plummet. No. 14 Kentucky and No. 16 North Carolina State each gained four spots in an idle week, and No. 20 Cincinnati moved up “ve. DOWN„ No. 13 West Virginia lost at Iowa State and fell seven spots after reaching a season high last week. „ No. 15 Washington dropped eight spots after losing at Oregon. „ No. 18 Penn States second straight close home loss, this time to Michigan State, dropped the Nittany Lions 10 spots. „ No. 23 Wisconsin, which started the season ranked fourth, dropped eight spots after its second loss.OUT„ Colorado reached No. 19, racking up wins against a weak schedule, but USC manhandled the Buffaloes in Los Angeles and now they are unranked. „ Miami, which started the season at No. 8, is out altogether after losing at Virginia. „ Auburn, which started the season ninth, is out and no longer receiving votes after getting beat at home by Tennessee and falling to 4-3. IN„ Iowa surged into the rankings for the “rst time this season at No. 19. „ No. 24 Michigan State is back in after a week out. „ No. 25 Washington State moved in just in time to host ESPNs College GameDayŽ for the “rst time ever with Oregon coming to town. Getting to Pullman, Washington, is notable for the show because for years it has been followed around by Wazzu fans waving the Ol Crimson school ”ag.CONFERENCE CALLA week after the Southeastern Conference placed a season-high eight teams in the poll, the SEC lost one and the Big Ten gained two.

NFL: Dallas 40, Jacksonville 7 COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Top 25 pollBy SCHUYLER DIXONAP PRO FOOTBALL WRITERARLINGTON, Texas „ Dak Prescott threw two touchdown passes to Cole Beasley to spark the previously punchless Dallas passing game and rushed for a career-high 82 yards in the Cowboys 40-7 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Perhaps pumped up by some pregame mingling with UFC fighter Conor McGregor the Cowboys rolled to a 24-0 halftime lead, with Beasley getting his first two touchdowns of the season for the NFLs 30th-ranked passing offense that was facing the leagues No. 1 pass defense. Prescott had 151 of his 183 yards passing in the first half because Dallas didnt need to throw while coasting during a second-half blowout. The 2016 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year had already his personal best in rushing for a game when he spun out of a sack for the longest run of his career, a 28-yarder. He scored Dallas first touchdown on a 17-yard run The Cowboys (3-3) won their first three games of the season at 9-year-old AT&T Stadium for the first time. Most of their offensive struggles have been in the three road losses. No such difficulties this time, even when Prescott lost control of the ball twice and basically dribbled to himself on two of his career-high 11 runs. He also completed a firstdown pass to former Baylor power forward Rico Gathers, making it quite the basketball day as well. Beasley had his second career 100-yard receiving game with 101 yards on nine catches. The scoring plays were from 17 and 9 yards. Trailing by at least 20 at halftime for the second straight week, the Jaguars (3-3) had to abandon their preferred running attack again. They also were without Leonard Fournette for the fourth time with a hamstring injury, and have a banged-up offensive line on its third left tackle. Blake Bortles, who established a career high in yards passing in consecutive weeks and had a chance to become the fifth NFL quarterback with three straight games of at least 375 yards, was 15 of 26 for 149 yards with a touchdown and an interception. The Dallas defense, a top 10 unit overshadowed coming into the game, lost its shutout on Bortles 34-yard pass to Dede Westbrook midway through the third quarter. But the Cowboys answered with their second interception of the season, by Jeff Heath as part of triple coverage and Jourdan Lewis recovery just barely inbounds of receiver Keelan Coles fumble after a catch. The centerpiece of the Dallas offense, NFL rushing leader Ezekiel Elliott, was something of an afterthought with the prolific passing in the first half. But he finally passed Prescotts rushing total for good on a 15-yard scoring run for a 37-7 lead and finished with 106 yards on 24 carries.DRAFT COMPARISONSIt was the first meeting for Elliott and outspoken Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who was taken one spot behind the Cowboys star at No. 5 in the 2016 draft. Both teams are obviously happy with the pick. The Jaguars rode their defense to a spot in the AFC championship game last season, and Elliott has been arguably the leagues most productive back in two-plus seasons. The 2016 rushing leader as a rookie, Elliott was suspended for six games last season over domestic violence allegations. Ramsey almost had an interception on the sideline at the goal line with the Jaguars down 24-7 late in the third quarter, but couldnt get his second foot inbounds.TEXAS HOMECOMINGFour-time All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles had four carries for 7 yards and a 5-yard catch as the backup to T.J. Yeldon less than a week after signing with the Jaguars. It was the former Kansas City stars first game at the home of the Cowboys. He was a freshman on Texas national championship team during the 2005 season and lives near Houston.INJURIESJaguars : DE Calais Campbell left in the first half with a rib injury. ...

It also snapped a 149-race losing streak for Almirola and atoned for his ohso-close moment in the season-opening Daytona 500. I just love racing at Talladega and I came to the track with the mindset that we were going to go race and we were going to go give them hell, and if we wrecked, we wrecked,Ž Almirola said. And if we win, we win. And we won. What a cool time to do it, too.Ž More important, it showed that SHR arrived at Talladega prepared to work as a four-car team and ensure one of its drivers made it to victory lane. The SHR Fords were untouchable all weekend. They swept qualifying, won every stage of Sundays race and used teamwork to pull away from the “eld. As the laps wound down, Kurt Busch led his three teammates in a straight line and pulled the train away from the pack, which couldnt organize itself behind the SHR group to mount any sort of challenge. But the dynamics changed when Alex Bowman spun with three laps remaining to bring out an ill-timed caution. Now the race was going to overtime, and the SHR cars didnt have enough gas for the extra laps. First Buschs fuel light began to ”icker. Then Kevin Harvick got the same warning. As the “eld roared to the green ”ag, Harvick forfeited a shot at victory by pulling off the track to get enough gas to make it to the “nish. Busch stayed out as the leader with Almirola and Clint Bowyer looking for a slot to slip past him for the victory. Then Busch ran out of gas headed to the checkered ”ag and Almirola zipped by for his “rst victory of the season, “rst since joining SHR this year as the replacement for Danica Patrick, and “rst since the rain-shortened Daytona race in July 2014. It was the second Cup victory of his career. Almirola was also leading on the “nal lap in overtime of the season-opening Daytona 500 until he was wrecked by winner Austin Dillon. Almirola thought he had last weeks race at Dover won until a caution triggered by teammate Bowyer ruined his shot at the victory. A week later, he got his checkered ”ag and his stamp into the round of eight into the playoffs. Four or “ve times this year I feel like weve had a shot to win and havent been able to seal the deal,Ž Almirola said. Bowyer “nished second, followed by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. in a Ford from Roush Fenway Racing. Busch faded to 14th and Harvick wound up 28th „ a disappointing end because SHR was poised for a 1-2-3-4 “nish before the race went to overtime. But the team understood how dominant it had been all day and fortunate it was to leave Talladega with one driver locked into the next round of the playoffs and the other three still in contention. The playoff “eld will be trimmed from 12 drivers to eight after next weeks race at Kansas Speedway. Mine sputtered there on the fuel pressure and it dropped down in the red and they did the right thing of coming in and pitting and not taking a chance,Ž Harvick said. You just need to put yourself in a position to where youre good for next week, just glad that one of our cars won, and happy for Aric.ŽUP NEXT The elimination race of the second round of the playoffs, at Kansas Speedway, where Kevin Harvick won in May and Martin Truex Jr. won last October. Harvick, Truex and Kyle Busch have combined to win the last “ve races at Kansas. NASCAR: Alabama 500 GOLF: CIMB ClassicAlmirola advances in playoffs with Talladega winBy NICOLAS ANILASSOCIATED PRESSKUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia „ Marc Leishman shot a 7-under 65 in the “nal round to win the CIMB Classic Sunday by “ve strokes and equal the tournament course record. The Australian was in “ne form as he strolled to his fourth PGA Tour title and matched Justin Thomas tournament record of 26-under 262 in 2015 on the PGA Kuala Lumpur West course. Leishman started strongly with four birdies in the “rst “ve holes, before turning in another long birdie putt on the ninth for 31. Two more birdies on the 10th and 16th followed and sandwiched his lone bogey at the 13th, before he birdied the “nal hole and celebrated with a “st pump. I feel unbelievable right now,Ž Leishman said after securing 500 FedEx Cup points for his victory. I knew that even though I got off to a good start, I still needed to grind because theres some tough holes out there. Managed to hit some good shots and this is the result. Its great to get back in the winners circle, excited to be back in Malaysia and leaving with this.Ž Leishman plans to celebrate his victory with some beers.Ž Well sit that (trophy) in the middle of the table tonight and have a few beers and just talk about it and just have a good night with friends really. Im looking forward to doing that tonight.Ž First-round leader Bronson Burgoon shot a 68 to “nish tied for second, along with Emiliano Grillo and Chesson Hadley. Thomas “nished tied for “fth place after ending the “nal day with an 8 under 64, along with Gary Woodland (71) and Louis Oosthuizen (69). Shubhankar Sharma, part of the trio of joint-leaders coming into the “nal round, faltered on the “nal day to “nish tied for 10th after an even-par 72. Disappointing, not really happy with the way I “nished. But again, as always, a great experience for me going forward and I think my game is in a good state for the next two weeks,Ž Sharma said.Australian Leishman wins CIMB Classic by 5 strokes AP PHOTOMarc Leishman of Australia celebrates after his putt on the eighteenth hole during the “nal round of the CIMB Classic golf tournament. adno=3621118-1 5301 Heron Creek Blvd. North Port.
