TheNewsSun By PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ Federal funds have now of“ cially been transferred to the Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ ce to fund the Safe Schools Program. Highlands County commissioners approved a budget amendment last Tuesday to let Sheriff Paul Blackman move $255,000, which the Federal Emergency Management Agency sent as a Hurricane Irma reimbursement, into an account to let him buy school resource deputies uniforms, Kevlar vests, equipment belts, weapons and radios „ in-car and hand-held at $5,000 each. With 11 new deputies to put into local schools under the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, enacted after the Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland, Blackman said he would need a total of $469,000. These funds would help pay equipment costs, Blackman said: $42,000 per deputy. Blackman told commissioners early this month that Gov. Rick Scott allocated funds for one-time startup costs for the Safe Schools Program, but the Florida Legislature said no. Thats how he lost n expected $70,000 from the school board.FEMA funds transferred to Safe Schools BLACKMANFlorida 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.

According to a complaint “ led in May, The School Board of Highlands County negligently failed to adequately supervise a student who physically bulliedŽ the plaintiff (student), which caused the injuries the plaintiff suffered. On Thursday, the School Board offered a settlement proposal to the student. The School Board is being represented by the Winter Park law “ rm Carman, Beauchamp, Sang & Gonzales. On Oct. 9, the students attorney, Sessums Law Group, Sebring, “ led two separate proposed settlement agreements to the defendants in the lawsuit „ the School Board and a student named in the lawsuit. Clerk of Court records do not show the amount offered in proposed settlement agreements. The complaint states that on or about Aug. 21, 2017, the plaintiff, who was a Sebring High student, entered the locker room on school property to hang up his keys prior to football practice. Upon entry into the locker room another student came up behind the plaintiff and slammed him into the ” oor. The other student proceeded to hit the plaintiff and pick him up and slam him around multiple times, the complaint states. The incident was witnessed by several other teammates. The school failed to call 911 for emergency help and the plaintiff was transported to the emergency room by his mother, where the plaintiff was diagnosed with a broken collar bone and probable concussion, the complaint shows. A motion “ led by the School Boards attorney (Carmen, Beauchamp ...) on April 30 stated the lawsuit should be dismissed because the plaintiff failed to provide suf“ cient facts in which, the alleged incident was reasonable foreseeable to the HCSB [Highlands County School Board].Ž A jury trial is scheduled for May 13, 2019 in the 10th Judicial Circuit Court, Highlands County.School district offers settlement in alleged bullying By MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ A Heart Like His Foundation donated 3,000 meals to Heartland Food Bank on Thursday, and the organization plans to continue their support of the hungry in Highlands County. We found out that Heartland Food Bank distributes to many food pantries.

We would walk into the mountains of Honduras with bags of clothes and food from Kids Against Hunger. The look on their faces when we handed them a bag of food was as if we had handed them a million dollars,Ž May said. This was an amount of hunger we hadnt been exposed to before.Ž Nancy and Matt May took pictures of the food bags from Kids Against Hunger and searched for information about the organization. We realized it was a practical solution to solving hunger.

He said in his home town, the Bronx, there arent fall festivals like the Heartland Family Fall Festival held Saturday at the Mall. Instead, he and his wife, Melissa, left the patch with two free min iature pumpkins for their kids, 6-year-old Maxx and 1-year-old Mia. Eileen Powers, working the sales booth for the Pumpkin Patch larger pumpkins went for $2-$5 said the trafc had been consistent, with families really enjoying a chance to pick out a pumpkin for Halloween. Were excited about the day so far, said Highlands News-Sun Publisher Tim Smolarick at noon, just three hours into the 12-hour event. The Pumpkin Patch has been a great suc cess, Smolarick said, tallying approximately ,000 kids having gone through the Kids Zone in the atrium between Belk and Sears, which contained both the Pumpkin Patch and an inatable basketball and soccer ball shooting game. The dunk tank, which had already had Liz Barber of the Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce, Highlands County Board of County Commission Chair Greg Harris and Sebring Police Chief Carl Hoglund had been hilarious, Smolarick said. Shortly after that, Sebring Fire Chief Robert Border got dunked in by Jace Jones, 2-1/2 years old, with help from Josh Chavis of McPhails Auto Sales, the dunking booth sponsor. Lori Lammie and Marilyn Reyes of H&R Block had coloring pages for kids of all ages at a booth inside the main entrance, and the main stage hosted presentations by several local agencies, including the Highlands County Sheriffs Ofces K9 Unit. Vocalists performed on the inside stage and on another opposite the dunk tank, also surrounded by a bounce house and slide as well as vehicle exhibits from law enforcement, re departments and auto motive/outdoor vehicle sellers. Even Lara FenielloMarkland, working a booth for Rent A Relative Inc., a family business that provides chores for home-bound seniors, said the event had brought a lot of people and fun. She spent the morning and afternoon across from a window display of fall weather clothes on mannequins topped with skulls and witches hats. Smolarick said the fall weather eluded the event this time. Saturday was supposed to be cooler weather, but the Farmers Almanac had the latest cold fronts arrival off by at least a day. Better luck next year, he said: This will be a regular event.

A4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 21, 2018 By PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERAVON PARK „ A local man allegedly tried to get away with an illegal ATM withdrawal by covering his face with a shirt. It didnt work. Highlands County Sheriffs deputies arrested Jessie Wayne Fowler, 35, of Avon Park on Thursday under two counts of fraud/using another persons identity without consent, three counts of committing a third-degree felony while wearing a mask, one count of committing a second-degree felony while wearing a mask and one count of committing a “rst-degree misdemeanor while wearing a mask. Sheriffs Public Information Of“cer Scott Dressel reported in a press release that Fowler allegedly pulled his shirt up over his face two of four times he used the card. However, surveillance cameras did record him and the license tag of the vehicle he was driving, Dressel said. Wearing a mask „ or covering your face with a shirt „ during the commission of a crime upgrades the charges by a step. Dressel said that means Fowler actually faces one “rst-degree felony charge, three second-degree felony charges and two third-degree felonies. In his release, Dressel points out that not all arrests lead to convictions. Everyone is considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Deputies also seek two others alleged to have illegally used the victims ATM card: 28-year-old Holly E. Peoples and her husband, 27-yearold Clayton Nathaniel McCaskill, also of Avon Park. The investigation began July 30 after the victim reported multiple unauthorized charges on her card and identi“ed Peoples and McCaskill as likely suspects. Dressel said security camera footage from two locations where the card was used suggests Peoples and McCaskill used the card. A third person, who turned out to be Fowler, was also captured on camera, along with his vehicle. Peoples is currently wanted for eight counts of fraud/using another persons identity without consent and McCaskill is wanted for “ve counts of that same charge, Dressel said. Anyone with information about this case is urged to call Det. Steven Ritenour at 863-402-7811 or They may also leave an anonymous tip with Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS (8477) or online at www. heartlandcrimestoppers. com. Crime Stoppers tips can be eligible for a cash reward of up to $3,000.One charged with debit fraudTwo more sought in alleged fraud case FOWLER PEOPLES MCCASKILLBy MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERLAKE PLACID „ A Lake Placid police offer conducted a traf“c stop at 108 Lakeview Street, because the driver of four-door sedan demonstrated erratic driving behavior. After a search of the vehicle, the of“cer found illegal drugs. A Lake Placid Police of“cer arrested Robert Michael Crago, 30, of Lake Placid on Thursday at 12:44 a.m. Crago was charged with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and possession of drug equipment. The of“cer noted that Crago turned onto Heartland Boulevard and crossed the fog line. Noting the driving behavior, the of“cer followed Crago when he turned onto Hillcrest Ave. in the oncoming laneŽ and crossed both solid yellow lines to return to the correct lane heading south,Ž the report states. Following the traf“c stop, the of“cer received permission to search the vehicle, and he found a small plastic bag containing a clear crystal-like substance inside Roberts black leather wallet,Ž the report states.

PAGE 5 October 21, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A5John Robert AlexanderJohn Robert Alexander, 82, of Frostproof, Florida, died peacefully on Oct. 18, 2018, in his home, comforted by his loving family and his belief in his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Born to Hugh and Hazel Alexander of Lake Wales, Florida on May 23, 1936, John was a child fascinated by everything, a trait that characterized his entire life. In high school he excelled academically, athletically, and artistically. He earned academic honors at Lake Wales High School while playing as an end on the football team and as a bassoonist in the concert band. He attended Purdue University on a Naval ROTC Scholarship and played the largest drum in the world in their marching band. He later transferred to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he competed on the gymnastics team in the pommel horse and ring events. He graduated in 1958 with a Bachelor of Science in Banking and Finance. Five days after his college graduation, on June 7, 1958, John married Sarah Jane Grif“n of Frostproof, Florida, beginning their shared life of mutual devotion, passionate love for their family, and an abiding con“dence in Christ. For more than 50 years, John remained dedicated to his church, First Presbyterian Church of Frostproof, where he faithfully sang in the church choir every Sunday, taught Sunday school classes and served as an Elder and moderator of the Session. He especially enjoyed his interaction with young and old members alike as their mutual faith in the Lord grew. Johns professional career began as a second lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps. Ultimately, he rose to the rank of captain, serving three years as an active duty Marine and “ve years in the Marine Corps Reserves. John touted his military service, in addition to more than 40 years working at Ben Hill Grif“n, Inc., as the foundation of his successful business career. John went on to serve as chief executive of“cer and president of Atlantic Blue, Inc., and retired as chief executive of“cer and chairman of the board of Alico, Inc. John was an avid sportsman, and throughout his life he loved hunting quail, deer, turkey, and dove with his many friends and family. He always cherished the time he spent as a boy with his brother, Jim, and father, Hugh, hunting quail on the Kissimmee River. He traveled throughout the United States as captain of the Second Marine Division Ri”e and Pistol Team, and in his retirement in 2009, he competed regularly on sporting clay and skeet teams throughout Central Florida. He and Sarah Jane often set out on big game hunts in the western United States and South Africa. His enthusiasm for the outdoors stretched to the Florida Keys and included “shing, boating, scuba diving and catching lobster. This dual love of the land and the sea earned him the nickname of Jacques Dundee,Ž a merger of his more famous counterparts Jacques Cousteau and Crocodile Dundee. He simply loved life. Johns unwavering care for his community and state was evident in his involvement in Florida TaxWatch, Florida Taxation and Budget Reform Commission, Florida Citrus Commission, Rotary International (Paul Harris Fellow and founder of the annual Frostproof Wild Game Dinner), Farm Credit of Southwest Florida, Floridians for Better Government, Florida Chamber of Commerce, Frostproof Police Retirement Pension and Polk State College Foundation. Johns accomplishments, however, pale in comparison to the surpassing love and acceptance he experienced from his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. John died in faith, believing that my Redeemer lives, and He shall stand at last on the earth; and after my skin is destroyed, this I know, that in my ”esh I shall see God.Ž (Job 19:25-26). Affectionately known as Pop,Ž Daddy,Ž PappyŽ or just John,Ž John Alexander is survived by his wife of 60 years, Sarah Jane Grif“n Alexander of Frostproof, Florida; a son, John David Alexander (Cindy) of Lake Wales, Florida; two daughters, Laura Grace Alexander of Winter Park, Florida and Nancy Alexander Caswell (Lee) of Atlanta, Georgia; and “ve grandchildren, Britton Alexander and Keaton Alexander of Tampa, Florida, R.E. Lee Caswell Jr., Grace Alexander Caswell and Sarah Mann Caswell all of Atlanta, Georgia. He is also survived by his brother, James Hugh Alexander (Nancy) of Palm Coast, Florida as well as extended family in Florida, throughout the United States and in England.

Rexford, who was born in Canton, Pennsylvania on June 3, 1943, was the son of Marian (Aumick) and Richard Darrow. Rexford moved to Lake Placid in 2006 from Miami, Florida after retiring as the principal of South Miami Elementary School. Rexford was a member of the Coconut Grove Masonic Lodge No. 258 F&AM, Lake Placid Moose Lodge 2137, and Memorial United Methodist Church of Lake Placid. One of Rexfords greatest passions was music. He was a member of The Barbershop Harmony Society, and sang in various quartets over the years. He delighted in opening up his home to friends, family, and especially to his beloved grandchildren. Rexford is survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Barbara; son, Rexford Gene Darrow (Shannon); daughter, Caroline Sanabria (Edgar); four grandchildren, Soleil Sanabria, Heidi Darrow, Ciel Sanabria, and Rexford Gene Darrow III; and sister, Connie Bates (Roland). Rexford will also be remembered by his nieces, nephews, extended family, and dear friends. Rexford was known for his infectious bass laugh, abundant love for others, strength of character and grit.

Readers may also email Letters to the Editor to Amendment 5 on the Nov. 6 ballot is little more than the gift of an excuse for lawmakers to use when they do not properly fund programs such as education, health care and mental health. The amendment, as written, would require a super majority of two-thirds of both the House and Senate to pass a bill to enact a new tax or fee or increase existing taxes or fees. Many voters will believe this is a good thing. Make it tougher on lawmakers to raise my taxes. Making it near impossible to raise taxes is not a good thing. Voters need to have con“dence in lawmakers that they will not needlessly raise taxes and, if they do, then they face the wrath of constituents. That is the better way to control taxes. Consequences of this law could mean the lack of funding for education and health care. It might mean the addition of tax loopholes and an inability to raise taxes to provide for needs that arise in an emergency „ like a hurricane or a recession. Those in favor will argue that it should be hard to raise taxes. Hard is the key word. The amendment would ensure, they say, that there is a large consensus when taxes are raised and that a super majority requirement would protect taxpayers. The Legislature, however, is already prohibited from raising the corporate income tax rate above the current 5.5 percent without a three-“fths majority vote of both the House and the Senate. Florida has some of the lowest taxes in the nation. That is a reason many people cite for moving here. The Legislature has cut taxes every year since 2009. So why do we believe a super majority is needed to protect us from tax-loving lawmakers? It just isnt the case. We recommend a no vote for Amendment 5. An editorial from the Charlotte Sun.Vote no for Amendment 5 YOUR VIEW Feedback of supportDue to Floridas medical malpractice wrongful death law, some people who have lost loved ones cannot recover for their losses. When patients die from medical malpractice in Florida, the persons who have no recovery rights for the loss of their loved ones are: children older than 25, the parents of an adult child over 25 years old, also, domestic partners, “ances, common law spouses, and siblings. The spouses and children under 25 of a decedent are eligible. The estate could recover for funeral expenses and medical bills, but the net recovery for those items is not enough to support the tremendous costs of the lawsuit. That makes these cases economically unfeasible. Many people who die from medical malpractice leave no one behind who can seek justice for this ultimate harm. As a result, the wrongdoers are never held accountable for their actions. Conduct that gets rewarded gets repeated. It does not apply when persons die from other forms of negligence, such as car accidents, slips and falls, and unsafe products. This Wrongful Death law is commonly referred to as Florida Statute 768.21. However the original bill that was effective Oct. 1,1990 is not available online, and must be requested from Tallahassee archives. It was Bill CS/SB 324 Relating to Wrongful Death Actions, Companion Bill CS/HB 709. Continue to respond to Kits Crusade, P.O. Box 1792, Avon Park, FL 33826 with how this statute has affected you and your family personally, your support comments in desiring to see the statute changed to bene“t all, or if you would like to know anything more about this statute.Millie Corbin (mother of Kit Corbin) Julia Hohnes (sister of Kit Corbin) SebringMission to help hurricane victimsThe Tanglewood Community Church Pastor Bill Burnham, Covenant Presbyterian Church Pastor Tom Schneider, and The Highlands Tea Party Chairman John Nelson are teaming up to deliver a truck load of emergency supplies to the citizens of Hurricane Michael.

Costumes and skeletons, scares and candy. Trick or treat and the Snoopy Halloween special. Among my favorite memories were the awesome decorations in my neighborhood. People went out of their way to make it a fun day for the kids. Later, when I had kids of my own, I had the pleasure of raising them is a neighborhood much like the one in which I was raised. All the families made a big deal out of ensuring the kids had fun memories and every house was spooktacular. Sadly, it seems people have forgotten how much fun this is. Driving through much of Highlands County, I see only a small smattering of people have bothered to decorate for Halloween. It is a shame really, because it is depriving kids today of the fun and wonder of that scary house with the big jack-o-lantern down the street. I am going to say this, step it up people, give the kids what we enjoyed, and decorate. Dont let todays kids miss out on the fun.Dana B. Orr Avon ParkIntention to vote for NelsonDuring his years in the U.S. Senate, Bill Nelson has been a centrist. I have noticed that attack ads put out by Rick Scott want us to believe that Nelson has an alarming absenteeism problem. The Govtrack website puts his absenteeism rate at no more than 2.3 percent. According to a website sponsored by the Florida Republican Party, only 10 bills sponsored by Bill Nelson have become law. It isnt easy to pass laws when you are in the minority. PolitiFact counted the bills passed somewhat differently: Bill Nelson sponsored 77 bills that passed the Senate. One law that he gets credit for is the Truth in Caller ID Act. Nelson introduced it in 2006, 2007 and again in 2009 before it became law in 2010. Bill Nelson has vigorously supported Israel against Hamas, which controls the Gaza strip. Nelson sponsored the Resolution for Israeli SelfDefense on that subject. The Resolution notes that Hamas had “red 350 rockets into Israel in 2010, 675 in 2011 and over 900 in 2012. It also reiterates that Hamas must accept Israels right to exist as a condition of any negotiations. Nelson supported moving the U.S. Embassy to Israel to Jerusalem. Ocean Champions says that Nelson has worked tirelessly to restore the Everglades. Nelson is also credited with leading a bipartisan effort to develop a national strategy to prevent harmful algal blooms, such as the ones plaguing Florida coasts in the last few months. I intend to vote for Bill Nelson for U.S. Senate.Dale L. Gillis SebringIn Highlands County, voters are fortunate in that they have a direct say in who “lls their constitutional of“ces. In addition to electing me as your sheriff, you are also able to directly control who serves as your tax collector, clerk of courts, property appraiser and supervisor of elections. But did you know that right is not guaranteed, and that voters in several Florida counties do not get to make that choice? There are 20 charterŽ counties in our state, and in eight of those charter counties, the voters have lost their right to choose at least one of their constitutional of“cers. In those counties, those of“ces are “lled by people who have been appointed rather than elected. And those appointees do not answer directly to the people they serve. Instead, they answer to an administrator, board or charter review commission instead of who their real boss should be „ the people they serve. When voters lose their right to select the leaders of their government agencies, not only does it reduce accountability, it also erodes your constitutional right to have a direct say in how your government operates. This November, you can make sure that right is protected. Amendment 10 would protect the right of voters in every county in the state to have constitutional of“cers that have been chosen by the voters, not the bureaucrats. That is why it is supported by every sheriff in the state, as well as the states elected clerks of the court, property appraisers and tax collectors. That isnt all Amendment 10 would do. The amendment is known as the protection amendmentŽ for three more reasons. In addition to protecting your right to choose your constitutional of“cers, Amendment 10 would also: Protect our security by creating the Of“ce of Domestic Security and Counterterrorism as part of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. This would make the FDLE the lead domestic security and counter-terrorism agency in FloridaŽ and would mandate that the of“ce will support other agencies involved with investigation and prosecution related to terrorism. „ Protect your tax dollars by improving state budgeting with a mandate that the Legislatures annual session begins in January on even-numbered years. „ Protects veterans by making the structure and governance of the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs mandatory. Yes, the state currently has this of“ce, but it functions on approval of the legislature. Amendment 10 would make it mandatory, not optional. Those are four very important changes that will protect not only your right to vote, but also help protect our families from terrorism and protect our states 1.5 million military veterans by guaranteeing they are represented in Tallahassee. I hope you will join me in supporting Amendment 10 with a yesŽ vote this November. Paul Blackman is sheriff of Highlands County.

PAGE 7 October 21, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A7with exceptions; permits more restrictive local ordinances.Ž Note This amendment is a bundledŽ amendment, which means that a single YesŽ or NoŽ vote applies to all components of the amendment. Voters cannot separate the components of the amendment. A Yes Vote Means Piece 1: Drilling for exploration or extraction of oil or natural gas will be prohibited on lands beneath all state waters which have not been alienated and that lie between the mean high-water line and the outermost boundaries of the states territorial seas. Piece 2: Vaporgenerating electronic devices will be added to current prohibition of tobacco smoking in enclosed indoor workplaces, with certain speci“ed exceptions. The practice of vaping will be treated the same as smoking regular cigarettes. A Note Vote Means Piece 1: There would be no constitutional safeguard against offshore drilling for oil and natural gas on lands beneath all state waters. Any legislative prohibition could easily be lifted. Piece 2: Floridians will continue to be subjected to second-hand vapor when they attend movies or restaurants and other public places. The Arguments Pros Piece 1: The prohibition against offshore drilling and exploration in our state waters sends a message to the federal government that Floridas tourism based economies and oil do not mixŽ and re”ects the economic value of Floridas natural resources. Piece 2: Health experts warn that nicotine ingested while vapingŽ can increase the risk of heart disease. Some brands of vapor-generating electronic devices contain formaldehyde, diacetyl, and high levels of toxic metals. Cons Piece 1: Domestic oil and gas development is a key driver of Floridas economy and supports many highpaying jobs and investments. Offshore oil and gas exploration should remain an option, at least in part to help meet energy needs. Advances in technology continue to make drilling less environmentally obtrusive. Piece 2: Linking offshore drilling with electronic cigarette use just doesnt make sense. Voters should be able to make decisions on public health and its economic future separately. Vaporgenerating electronic devices, such as e-cigarettes, offer smokers an effective way to consume nicotine while giving up the harmful chemicals found in tobacco products. General: The bundlingŽ of separate and unrelated issues into a single amendment unconstitutionally prevents voters from making a simple yesŽ or noŽ decision on each issue. Analysis Piece 1: It is the policy of the state to conserve and protect its natural resources and scenic beauty. Oil and gas drilling in Floridas territorial waters is regulated by the Florida Department of Environmental Regulation. In 2006, Congress approved a federal moratorium that bans drilling along almost all of the eastern Gulf of Mexico, an area which extends 125 miles off Floridas west coast. This moratorium also contains a wellcontrol rule that was adopted in the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon disaster. An executive order signed by the President of the United States in April calls for these regulations to be reconsidered. The ballot measure prohibits oil and gas drilling for exploration or extraction in and beneath all state waters which have not been alienated and that lie between the mean high-water line and the outermost boundaries of the states territorial seas. The transportation of oil and gas products produced outside those waters is unaffected. Piece 2: In 2002, the constitution was amended to prohibit tobacco smoking in enclosed indoor work places. Florida law currently permits indoor smoking of tobacco in private residences, retail tobacco shops, designated smoking guest rooms, stand-alone bars, rooms designated for smoking cessation and medical or scienti“c research, and customs smoking rooms in airport in-transit lounges. The current prohibition against tobacco smoking in enclosed indoor work places was enacted before vapor-generating electronic devices were marketed in the U.S. A 2016 study of the health risks from passive exposure to such vapor concluded that the absolute impact from second-hand exposure to tobacco vapor has the potential to lead to adverse health effects.Ž Other studies have shown that probable cancer-causing chemicals, such as formaldehyde and acetaldehyde, are measurable in some e-cigarette vapor. The ballot measure prohibits vapor-generating electronic devices in enclosed indoor workplaces, just as smoking tobacco is currently prohibited. Retail locations where vapor-generating electronic devices are sold are added to the list of indoor locations where the use of vapor-generating electronic devices is permitted. Fiscal Impact The Department of Environmental Protection does not anticipate any “nancial impacts associated with the prohibition against offshore drilling for oil and natural gas. The Department of Business and Professional Regulation enforces compliance with the prohibition against indoor tobacco smoking consistent with Florida law. Any “nancial impact to state or local government is expected to be minimal. Conclusion The bundling of two or more separate issues into a single ballot measure, although potentially confusing to voters, has been upheld by the Florida Supreme Court. This bundling has the potential to require voters to accept constitutional changes they may not like in order to get constitutional changes they do like. The constitution loses much of its signi“cance as the foundational instrument of government when the process of constitutional amendment or revision is used as a substitute for legislation. Incorporating what is essentially a legislative matter into the constitution undercuts the legislative process and limits legislative responsibility and discretion. Once incorporated, it is extremely dif“cult to remove what is essentially a statutory provision from the constitution. The contents of the Florida Constitution should be limited to matters that are essential or fundamental. Matters that are ordinarily handled through the legislative process, such as where people can and cannot smoke tobacco products, should be excluded from the Constitution.AMENDFROM PAGE 1A adno=3616934-1Solar rights, for us... not the large utilities.

Blackman said his allocations under the county budget was for salaries. He told them during the budget process, he said, that hed buy equipment internally. Elwell asked if Blackman was repurposing patrol vehicles for school deputies, and he said they were. Sheriffs Business Administrator Rob Reed said the county also allocated $400,000 in the 10-year capital “nancial strategy to replace sheriffs vehicles. Blackman said road patrol vehicles must be retired to other divisions when they hit 80,000 miles. Of his 80 road patrol vehicles, 28 have more than that.

SPORTS SECTION B Sunday, October 21, 2018 • LOCAL • STATE • NATIONAL By MARK PINSONSPORTS EDITORLAKE WALES „ Lake Wales running back Johnny Richardson scored two touchdowns to lead the Highlanders to a 35-20 win over Sebring in an important Class 6A-District 8 game on Friday night at Legion Field. The hard-fought win improved Lake Wales to 7-1 overall and 3-0 in district play, while the loss dropped Sebring to 5-2, 2-1. We played with a lot of effort but we made too many mistakes,Ž said Blue Streaks coach LaVaar Scott. We had plenty of opportunities but didnt take advantage of them. Lake Wales gave us a chance with a couple of turnovers in the fourth quarter and then we gave it right back to them. Its a disappointing loss, but we have to regroup because we still have a chance to make the playoffs.Ž After a scoreless “rst quarter, Lake Wales got on the scoreboard with a 10-yard run by Johnny Richardson. The extra point snap was muffed and the Highlanders had a 6-0 lead with 8:11 remaining in the second period. Sebring moved the ball into Lake Wales territory on its next possession but a fourth-down pass fell incomplete to kill the drive. Lake Wales utilized Richardsons speed on its next drive as the junior speedster took a screen pass 32 yards for a touchdown. A 2-point run gave the Highlanders a 14-0 lead with 2:14 left in the “rst half.

By JIM TAYLORCORRESPONDENTAVON PARK … In a game much closer and exciting than what the “nal score may indicate, the Avon Park Red Devils were not able to keep pace with the Cardinal Mooney Cougars in a 48-34 loss on Friday night at Joe Franza Stadium. The win improved the Cougars to 8-0 overall, while the loss dropped the Red Devils to 5-3 on the season. Offensively, we did what we wanted to do,Ž said Avon Park Head Coach Jerry Hudnell. We controlled the clock, we controlled the tempo, that is now an 8-0 team, that speaks volumes in itself. We hung with them, arguably our best defensive player is out and that showed.Ž Offensively, the Red Devils put up a total of 395 yards while the Cougars totaled 396, half of that coming from their wide receiver Meko Mayes. The difference ended up being two turnovers by Avon Park inside their own 20. Cardinal Mooney opened the game with a 54-yard drive to take a 7-0 lead on a 3-yard quarterback keeper. The Red Devils cut that lead to one late in the second quarter on their second possession, their “rst in the “rst quarter was a 13-play, 61-yard drive that stalled at the Cougars 19 that took over seven minutes off the clock. This drive was a 14-play drive for 61 yards that concluded with Tyrek Dunlap scoring on a keeper to make the score 7-6 with 2:58 left in the half. Then a scoring frenzy ensued as Cardinal Mooney answered, connecting on two 32yard passes, the second for a touchdown as the Cougars went up 14-6 with 2:34 left in the half.Cougars claw past Red DevilsCardinal Mooney beats Avon Park in offensive shootout BY JIM TAYLOR/CORRESPONDENTAvon Parks Earl Collins (12) rushed for 44 yards and caught four passes for 45 yards and a touchdown in Friday nights game against Cardinal Mooney. The freshwater “shing forecast for the fourth full week of October gives anglers the full moon phase week and a fall season weather forecast that will put anglers in the mood to go “shing. All “shing factors considered, anglers will enjoy a very good “shing week. The full moon occurs Wednesday which means the entire “shing week will produce above average results, and the weather conditions will provide plenty of “shing factor-change resulting in greater “sh-adjustment activity. For daytime anglers to have a productive full-moon “shing week, there needs to be nighttime cloud-cover to shutdown nighttime feeding activity when the moon is directly overhead. Fish will not feed successfully without bright moonlight, and as a result will feed twelve hours later when the moon is underfoot during solar noon light at 1:09 p.m. Good news, the weather forecast predicts signi“cant cloud-cover Tuesday through the end of the week. This will greatly slowdown the midnight feeding activity and increase substantially midday feeding activity. A steady medium north wind will drop temperatures today into the lower eighty degree range, starting the typical fall season weather-pattern norm. By the end of this month water temperatures will decline into the top of the ideal feeding temperature range of seventy-two to eighty-two degrees. Dissolved oxygen rates will become ideal for “sh to digest at annual high speeds, essentially enabling “sh to feed-at-will. About time!

PAGE 11 October 21, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B3By BRANDON C. WILLIAMSFantasy football in 2018 has been de“ned by a revival at quarterback. Entering Week 7, the position is 12 to 15 players deep with quality starters along with a handful of others who can deliver above-average numbers, depending on the matchup. There are also those who came into the season expecting to put up monster numbers but havent. There will be more of the same at the position this week, as well as some under-the-radar backs who need to be in most lineups and a receiver who has worked his way into WR2 status. START: Sony Michel, RB, Patriots: Hes arrived to borderline RB1 status. In his past three games, Michel is averaging 105.1 yards on a solid 4.7 yards per carry average while scoring four touchdowns. By averaging 22.1 carries a game, Michel has shattered the longtime fear of fantasy owners committing to Patriots running backs. Even against a Bears defense that is second only to the Ravens in fantasy points allowed per game to opposing running backs, Michel belongs in most lineups. SIT: Deshaun Watson, QB, Texans: Watson looks like a quarterback with only 13 games of experience under his belt. In his past two starts, Watson has thrown three interceptions and has led the offense to only two drives that resulted in touchdowns. A lot of his issues come from the fact Houstons running game averages just 3.9 yards per carry and has only one rushing touchdown from its backs (Watson has the only other rushing TD), a problem that will not be resolved on the road against a Jaguars D that is fourth in fewest fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks. Better days lie ahead for Watson, but Sunday wont be one of them. START: John Brown, WR, Ravens: Nothing says reboundŽ like facing the Saints pass defense that is the most fantasy-friendly unit against opposing receivers. Brown had only three targets last week against the Titans but should easily return to the nearly nine targets per game he had before that. New Orleans has given up 21 passes of at least 20 yards, which plays well for Brown, who had at least one catch for better than 20 yards in each game prior last week. Expect at least 2-3 shots up top to Brown, wholl make the most of the opportunities. SIT: Dalvin Cook, RB, Vikings: Although Cook practiced Wednesday without a hitch, the weekly saga continues for owners of Cook. He has only 10 touches over the last four games and even if he does get on the “eld, theres no guarantee how many touches hell see. Cook could miss out on a Jets defense that is a modest 17th against the run, which means Latavius Murray owners should be ready to plug him in as either an RB2 or ”ex if Cook is either limited or completely unavailable. START: Marquise Goodwin, WR, 49ers: Finally healthy, Goodwin torched the Packers for 126 yards and a pair of touchdowns on just four catches. The Rams secondary has struggled without injured All-Pro corner Aqib Talib, having allowed nine touchdown passes in the last four games. Expect Goodwin „ who has just 14 targets all season „ to approach double digits in a game where the 49ers will likely be playing catch-up. Niners quarterback C.J. Beathard has thrown two touchdown passes in three straight games and is likely to keep that streak if he gets Goodwin involved from the outset. SIT: Jordan Howard, RB, Bears: Howard has just one touchdown thus far and has become almost nonexistent in the Chicago passing game. Tarik Cohen continues to eat away into his snaps and Howards 3.5 yards per carry only makes using him tougher. Even though the Patriots are a middle of the road run defense (18th overall), Howard probably deserves to be benched, especially in PPR formats.The Best fantasy plays of the week Living Room Meet grocery shoppingPublix groceries delivered right to your door.

Lake Wales scored to go up 28-14, but once again Sebring answered as Williams ripped off a 50-yard scoring run. The point after was wide right to make it 28-20 with 3:34 remaining to play. Lake Wales had a fourth-and-one at its 40-yard line with under two minutes to play, but the Highlanders were able to draw Sebring off sides with a hard count to pick up a “rst down.

PAGE 13 October 21, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B5another minor cold front arrives, producing a perfect “shing wind out of the north late Thursday night. A perfect west “shing-wind will prevail Friday and next weekend. And remember, even though the temperatures feel much better in the lower eighties, dont disrespect the midday sun. I wrote the following admonishment in my August 5 article and it stands a valid piece of advice for this week tooƒ Play it safe and bring lots of drinks with electrolytes and use adequate sun protections, such as a large brim hat and sun-blocker. Even a silly-looking sun umbrella attached to the seat isƒin smart fashion.Ž (It has been brought to my attention that some of my readers were offended by the reference of umbrellas as sillyŽ.) To be clear, the context of my advice was physical safety, i.e. playing it safe by protecting ones self by using an umbrella, even though it might lookƒsilly on a bass boat. And on August 12 one week later, I again expressed concern for all anglers physical well-beingƒ All “shing factors considered, anglers will need to endure the heat of the day in order to have success. So protect yourself from the Florida summer sun, by using all means necessary to ensure your health; plenty of water and electrolytes, protective clothing, sun blocker several times during the trip and why not fasten an ugly umbrella to your “shing seat to provide much needed shade.Ž Next time Ill use unattractive instead of silly or ugly. Silly ShadeŽ is far better than skin cancer and ugly umbrellas are a beautiful thing in the Florida sun every day of the year since they block cancerous sun raysƒ.especially on ears and noses. Best Fishing Days: Tuesday through Thursday a cloud covered full moon will produce very good “shing results during the midday noontime hours. Major Fishing Period: Today the moon is underfoot at 11:02 a.m. and solar noon at 1:09 p.m. and will create a feed intensity rating of 4-5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Daily the rating will increase by a half number until Thursday when it reverses at the same rate. I believe the midday feeding activity will remain centered on solar noon until Saturday when the underfoot period at 4 p.m. starts to improve the sunset period. Minor Fishing Period: Today the moon-rise occurs at 5:25 p.m. and the sunset at 6:51 p.m. and will create a feed intensity rating of 4 from 5-8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday evenings could end-up being better than the major period due to dissolved oxygen rates being at the highest rate at this time. Im predicting ideal oxygen rates in our lakes by Halloween. The lunar perigee occurs on that day along with the last quarter moon phase. If Im correct, some of the best sunset “shing days of the year will occur. Prime Monthly Periods: October 21-26 full moon, November 4-9 new moon, 20-25 full moon, December 4-9 new moon, 19-24 full moon.

B6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 21, 2018 Avon Park came back and pulled a play from their bag of tricks as Kevin Young threw a 40-yard halfback pass to Javarius Smith for a touchdown to tie the game at 14 with 57 seconds left in the half. The Cougars tried to quick strike the Red Devils again, this time Jorden Constant picked off a deep Cougar pass and returned it to the Cardinal Mooney 31. Dunlap hit Smith for 23 yards and two plays later, gave the Red Devils their “rst lead of the game at 21-14 with a 3-yard touchdown toss to Xavier Holdman with 3 seconds left in the half. The Cougars retook the lead early in the third quarter, scoring on a 22-yard run to make the score 21-20, then recovered an Avon Park fumble and returned it 18 yards to take the lead 26-21. The Red Devils answered with an 11-play drive for 72 yards that was capped off with a 16-yard pass from Dunlap to Earl Collins to give the Red Devils a 27-26 lead. Cardinal Mooney added a score late in the third quarter on a 36-yard touchdown pass to put the Cougars back up heading into the fourth quarter 34-27. The Red Devils tied the game midway through the fourth quarter at 34 on a 20-yard run by Dunlap. That lead would be short lived as again the Red Devils had no answer for Mayes as he caught a 47-yard touchdown pass to push the Cougars back to the lead at 41-34 with “ve minutes left in the game. On the ensuing kickoff, the of“cials called Avon Park down at the 6-yard line stating his knee hit the ground on the catch and return. The Red Devils then lost a fumble on their next play, giving the Cougars the ball on their own four. Though the defense tried to make a stand, Mayes caught a 4-yard touchdown pass three plays later to make the “nal score 48-34. We made mistakes in the red zone again and it is killing us,Ž said Hudnell. We are getting really good at shooting ourselves in the foot.ŽMayes would end up with 9 catches for the Cougars that totaled 197 yards and three touchdowns. The Red Devils rushed for a total of 182 yards with Dunlap picking up 95 on 20 carries and two touchdowns. Dunlap also completed 13 of 24 passes for 173 yards and two touchdowns. Smith caught 6 passes for 131 yards and a touchdown.

Preparations continue for several teams for the inaugural IMSA Michelin SportsCar Encore at Sebring International Raceway on Nov. 9-11, 2018. After two full days of practice and qualifying on the 3.74-mile, 17-turn track, the featured event takes place on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 12 p.m. with a four-hour race featuring LMP3, GT3, GT4 and TCR race cars. Drivers and teams will be competing for a $10,000 winners prize and a $5,000 Michelin tire credit to apply for the 2019 season. It is also an opportunity for teams to get experience on the new-for-2019 Michelin tires. One of those such teams is the South Florida-based P1 Motorsports, who has entered an LMP3 car for the event. We have a lot of information already on the tires, we were pretty much the “rst team to have the car in America dating back a couple of years now,Ž said P1 Motorsports team manager Alberto Pea. Its still convenient for us to go out and just to get a one up on the tires and see for next year.Ž At the IMSA Michelin SportsCar Encore, teams are allowed a minimum of two and a maximum of three drivers per car. Platinum-rated drivers are prohibited, and each car may have a maximum of one gold-rated driver, which cannot participate in qualifying. The event is an unprecedented opportunity for drivers to experience IMSA in a low-pressure setting at one of North Americas iconic road courses. Its opportunities like that, Pea believes, that make it so attractive. Theres no replacement for seat time,Ž he said. Any time we dont have to spend a lot of money to run a track, and still have a good time, it is always a plus. So thats what our drivers really looking forward to more than anything. Just going out there and having a good time.Ž In addition to the LMP3 cars that make up the IMSA Prototype Challenge, other cars eligible to compete include GT3 cars, which are the basis for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GTD class, GT4 cars that compete in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge GS class, and TCR cars that debuted in the Continental Tire Challenge in 2018. Tickets will be sold at the gate of Sebring International Raceway each day, and military veterans will be admitted free on Sunday (Veterans Day) with proper ID. Following Saturdays on-track action, there will be a concert at 7 p.m. featuring one of country musics top artists Love and Theft along with the Dairy Daughters. We are going to use the Encore race as a test session for next season,Ž said KohR Motorsports Team Owner Dean Martin. It should give us some insight into what the car is going to want with the Michelin tires for Sebring in 2019. Were trying to get a leg up on 2019 because we are very disappointed with our “nishing position in the team championship this year (second) and were not going to let that happen again next year.Ž Martin will “eld two Ford Mustang GT4s at the IMSA Michelin SportsCar Encore and plans to have a little fun, as hell pilot one of the racecars alongside 2018 full-season drivers Kyle Marcelli and Nate Stacy. This will be Martins “rst time in the drivers seat since taking two wins and an additional podium “nish in seven races back in 2017. GMG Racing, led by James Sofronas, returns to the IMSA “eld with an Audi R8 LMS GT4 after contesting the season-opening BMW Endurance Challenge at Daytona earlier this season. Sofronas will co-drive the car with Audi Sport customer racer Jason Bell. The upcoming Encore at Sebring will be an event like no other, and were thrilled to be a part of it with Jason Bell,Ž added Sofronas. The event will welcome a new tire partnership that marks a new era ahead of IMSAs 50th Anniversary, and the “rst preliminary run of the new Michelin Pilot Challenge (what the series will be known as in 2019) will be a great way to see what the series has on offer, and of course at one of the most iconic circuits, Sebring International Raceway. Jason should be a great addition. Sebring requires a great combination of patience and aggression, and Im sure hell love it. Our Audi R8 LMS GT4 will be really matched there, so were aiming to be quick right out of the box.Ž One of the TCR cars in the “eld will be 2018 entrant Rumcastle Racing, a family-run operation spearheaded by Jerod Rumburg. Brothers Tanner and Luke Rumburg will be behind the wheel at Sebring, where they recorded their best “nish this season of second place. We simply love Sebring, and its heritage,Ž said Jerod Rumburg, And we are looking forward to trying out the new tires. Its always great to race when given a chance like this.Ž The IMSA Michelin SportsCar Encore will kick off with two days of practice and qualifying on the 3.74-mile circuit before Sundays race at 12 p.m. ET. Teams are allowed a minimum of two and a maximum of three drivers per car. Platinum-rated drivers are prohibited, and each car may have a maximum of one gold-rated driver, which cannot participate in qualifying.IMSA SportsCar Encore at SebringExciting weekend of racing set for November Preparations continue for several teams for the inaugural IMSA Michelin SportsCar Encore at Sebring International Raceway on Nov. 9-11.

Page 2 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 21, 2018Dear Mr. Berko: Back in the middle of 2014, I wrote and asked you to recommend a good utility stock for my 77-year-old mother. Mom had a $13,000 certi“cate of deposit that was coming due, and the interest rate on her renewal was terrible. Seeing as the women in my family have long lives, we wanted a utility that would regularly raise the dividend, as well as increase in value. You recommended Dominion Energy, and we believed you. So that summer, we bought 150 shares at $75.25, and the stock paid Mom 3.1 percent. But now Dominion is about $72, and we have a loss of about $500. We cant afford to lose money. And we never expected this to go down in price, because you said in your email to us, This issue should have strong dividend growth and modest principal appreciation over the long term.Ž We have two other stocks, and both are up. So why hasnt Dominion gone up when the stock market is way up? Did you give us bad advice? What should we do now? „ SP, Durham, N.C. Dear SP: It looks as if I gave you bad advice, but looks are often deceiving. I apologize, but I know my apology wont encourage Dominion Energy (D-$72.70) to traipse back to your $75.25 cost basis. However, when your mom bought Dominion four years ago, the dividend was $2.35. And I hope you noticed that Ds dividend has increased in each of the past four years, to $3.34 a share. When your mom bought D, she was getting $352 in dividend income each year, or $88 each quarter. Now that Ds dividend has increased, Mom is getting $501 annually, or $125.25 every quarter. Thats nearly a 50 percent increase in income. And by the end of this year, your mom will have received $2,300 in dividends. Please dont worry about the small loss, as I will give you a guaranteed maybeŽ that within a dozen months, D will trade at your cost basis or higher. Dominions shares rose to over $85 late last year. Investors were expecting a positive ruling from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission concerning taxes on Dominion Energy Midstream Partners, a highly ef“cient master limited partnership. But the ruling was negative, and Ds price collapsed to the low $60s. Working with government bureaucrats such as the dunderheads at FERC is like trying to row your boat in a lake of mud. But recently, FERC reversed its ruling, and Dominion shares have recovered nicely since September. The new ruling allowed Dominions management to pro“tably acquire Dominion Energy Midstream Partners. Management expects the transaction to close by years end. As the Bard said, alls well that ends well. But it doesnt end here, because there may be more good news to come. Dominion is in talks to buy SCANA Corp. (SCG$39). SCANA has faced government regulatory problems after canceling its nuclear construction project, which could bankrupt the company. SCANA, a $4 billion-revenue utility, has some 1.6 million electric and gas customers in the Carolinas and 450,000 customers in Georgia. An unfavorable regulatory ruling from the stupids at FERC would encourage Dominion to withdraw its offer. What should we do now?Ž you asked. Well, you and your mom could either buy another 100 shares of Dominion or just stay the course and let those revenues, pro“ts and dividends grow each year. This year, Dominion should post $13 billion in revenues, and in 2019, Ds revenues could rise to $13.5 billion. And Dominion should be able to maintain its high payout, thanks to the income it receives from Dominion Energy Midstream Partners. Managements earnings guidance for 2019 is $4.37 a share, compared with $3.75 in 2018, and a $3.72 dividend, versus $3.34 this year, looks like a shoo-in. Ds pro“table future looks like a shooin, too. Going out four to “ve years, Wall Street believes that D could post $15 billion in revenues on its books. And by 2023 „ aided by a lower tax rate, at 19 percent „ earnings of $5.25 a share and a $4.70 dividend are a de“nite possibility. So you must have the patience to hold Dominion for another few years, as some analysts believe that it could trade at over $100 a share. Email Malcolm Berko at be patient with Ol Dominion MalcolmBERKOC By BRENDAN FARRINGTON and JAY REEVESASSOCIATED PRESSPANAMA CITY „ Already sick with strep throat and asthma, Aleeah Racette got sicker when she cleaned out a soggy, moldy home after Hurricane Michael, so she sought help at the hospital where she began life. She was stunned by what she saw there. The exterior wall of Bay Medical Sacred Heart in Panama City is missing from part of the building, and huge vent tubes attached to fans blow air into upper ”oors through holes where windows used to be. Plywood signs with green spray-painted letters point to the entrance of the emergency room, the only part of the 323-bed hospital still operating. Ive never seen anything like this before,Ž Racette, 20, said Thursday in a croaky voice. I was born in this hospital.Ž Medical services in the Florida Panhandle are still on life support more than a week after Hurricane Michael. Panama Citys two major hospitals, Bay Medical and the 216-bed Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center, still arent admitting patients. Only emergency room services are available at either facility. Patients with the most serious needs are being sent to other hospitals by ambulance or helicopter. Both hospitals are receiving help from Disaster Medical Assistance Teams, which set up air-conditioned tents in parking lots and operate something like the military “eld hospitals depicted in the old television series M*A*S*H. Besides the care theyd provide on a typical basis, like treating Racettes strep throat, doctors and nurses also are treating many people with storm-related injuries and health conditions. Were seeing cuts, were seeing bruises and fractures,Ž said Martha Crombie, a spokeswoman for Bay Medical Sacred Heart who was ”own in from Nashville, Tennessee, to help with hospital communications. Back injuries are common, she said, as are people who have chronic illnesses and are out of medication. The hospital is “lling prescriptions and providing a list of open pharmacies. Crombie said Bay Medical Sacred Heart and its other facility in Panama City Beach have treated an average of 200 people a day „ a number she expects to rise when a county curfew is lifted. She said fewer patients arrive after the nightly curfew takes effect, which does have an exemption for people with medical emergencies. Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center spokesman Brad Palmer said the facility had treated 560 emergency room patients in the week since the storm. While they arent admitting patients, the hospitals are stabilizing people with serious injuries or illness and transporting them to hospitals outside the heavily damaged areas. Some people go to the outdoor medical tents, which is where Racette was treated at Bay Medical Sacred Heart. Tony Averbuch, who leads the team of government workers providing care outside the hospital, said business is steady. Right now were seeing between 80 and 100 people a day at this site, but were one of many sites that are across Florida,Ž he said. The teams work “lls a critical need for patients and the medical community, as Crombie said Bay Medical Sacred Heart is still trying to check on the well-being of its own workers. Of 1,700 employees, she said, the hospital has heard from only about half, many of whom likely lost phone service and internet connection or evacuated because of the storm. Hospital executives did a helicopter tour with employees homes mapped out. It was eye-opening and eye-popping,Ž Crombie said. Conditions are improving, but its unclear when area hospitals might resume normal operations. Cleanup crews swarmed Bay Medical Sacred Heart on Thursday, the same day it regained power. The water also is back on, even though its not yet safe to drink.Panhandle medical care on life support after Michael Aleeah Racette receives medical treatment inside the Florida 5 Disaster Medical Assistance Team tent, outside the Bay Medical Sacred Heart hospital, in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael in Mexico Beach, Thursday.

The Tallahassee Democrat reports unclear which of the 15 ships, or how many, that grounded on the Franklin County barrier island during the storm 119 years ago were exposed by Michael. Facing the Gulf of Mexico, the wooden ships now rest in plain view near the west end of the island. State of“cials say resources are being used for more urgent hurricane recovery efforts, and there are no plans for state archaeologists to visit the site. The 1899 hurricane crossed over the Florida Keys into the Gulf of Mexico where it strengthened into what would be classi“ed today as a Category 2 storm.City Commissioner accused in shooting held without bailBARTOW (AP) „ A Florida city commissioner is being held in jail without bail, accused of fatally shooting a man he accused of shoplifting a hatchet from an Army-Navy surplus store. The Lakeland Ledger reports Michael Dunn appeared in court on Saturday. A grand jury indicted 47-year-old Michael Dunn on a second-degree murder charge Friday. Surveillance video shows the Lakeland commissioner shooting 50-year-old Cristobal Lopez on Oct. 3. The video shows Dunn holding a gun in his right hand while trying to keep Lopez from carrying the hatchet out of the store. Dunn grabs Lopezs shirt, and Lopez is partly out the door, raising the hatchet, when Dunn “res and Lopez falls, mortally wounded. Dunns attorney, Rusty Franklin, has previously said the shooting was justi“ed because Lopez was holding the hatchet.Police: Man beats ex-wife, drowns Chihuahua in poolPEMBROKE PINES (AP) „ Police say a Florida man drowned a disabled Chihuahua while “ghting with his exwife by tossing the dog into a backyard swimming pool. Pembroke Pines police say 40-year-old Juan Manuel Gonzalez also grabbed the woman by the face and cut her lip Thursday night. Police say Gonzalez reportedly said you cant swim but youre going to learn tonight,Ž just before throwing the dog in the pool. The police report didnt describe the dogs disability. The woman, who is pregnant, said she could hear the dog crying in the water. The SunSentinel reports that Gonzalez denied hurting his ex-wife, but admitted throwing the dog in the pool. Police named Gonzalez the primaryŽ aggressor and arrested him on domestic violence and animal cruelty charges. Its not known whether he has a lawyer.Man killed by commuter trainLAKE WORTH (AP) „ Authorities say a man was struck and killed by a Florida commuter train. The Palm Beach Post reports that the man died at the scene Thursday evening in Lake Worth. The Palm Beach County Sheriffs Of“ce says the man laid down in front of a Tri-Rail train just before it hit him. Tri-Rail says the train was carrying 422 passengers. The line was closed for about three hours, requiring passengers to be bused between the Boynton Beach and Mangonia Park stations.Fantasy Fest begins with king, queen coronationKEY WEST (AP) „ The Florida Keys wacky and often-decadent costuming and masking festival is kicking off with a coronation ball to crown the 10-day festivals king and queen. Fantasy Fest begins Friday in Key West. The celebration started in 1979 when a small group of Key Westers were looking to bolster business between summer and winter. There are almost 100 events this year, including Sundays Zombie Bike Ride, the Wednesday Pet Masquerade and next Fridays Masquerade March. The Fantasy Fest Parade is set for next Saturday night and is expected to attract more than 60,000 revelers. King and queen candidates campaign by raising money for AH of Monroe County. Since 1989, the competition has raised more than $4.5 million for the organization that helps Keys residents affected by AIDS and HIV.Nature-themed resort will be built at Walt Disney WorldLAKE BUENA VISTA (AP) „ Walt Disney World says its going to build a new nature-themed resort. The Florida-based theme park resort said Thursday that the as-yet-unnamed resort will open in 2022. It will have 900 hotel rooms as well as villas for Disneys timeshare program. The new project joins three other resort construction projects underway at Disney World. The 27,000-acre tourist destination already has 36 resorts on its property, as well as four theme parks.

Seeking to maintain order after a chaotic Friday in which thousands rushed across the border bridge only to be halted by a phalanx of of“cers in riot gear, authorities began handing out numbers for people to be processed in a strategy seen before at U.S. border posts when large numbers of migrants show up there. Once they were processed, migrants were bused to an open-air, metal-roofed fairground in the nearby city of Tapachula, where the Red Cross set up small blue tents on the concrete ”oor. Easily 3,000 people or more the previous day, the crowd on the bridge thinned out noticeably. But the slow pace frustrated those stuck on the bridge, where conditions were hot and cramped, and some pleaded at the main gate: Please let us in, we want to work!Ž Behind it, workers erected tall steel riot barriers to channel people in an orderly fashion. Each time a small side gate opened to allow small groups in for processing, there was a crush of bodies as migrants desperately pushed forward. Scarleth Cruz hoisted a crying, sweat-soaked baby girl above the crowd, crying out: This girl is suffocating.Ž Cruz was among the many who appeared willing to accept any kind of migratory relief Mexico might offer. Cruz, 20, said she was going to ask for political asylum because of threats and repression she faced back in Honduras from President Juan Orlando Hernandezs governing party. Why would I want to go to the United States if Im going to be persecutedŽ there as well, she said. Mexicos Interior Department said in a statement that it had received 640 refugee requests by Hondurans at the border crossing. It released photos of migrants getting off buses at a shelter and receiving food and medical attention. At least a half-dozen migrants fainted amid the heat, and a steady stream abandoned the bridge to cross the Suchiate River by swimming, fording its shallows with the aid of ropes or ”oating in groups of about 10 on rickety rafts. None were visibly detained despite the presence of hundreds of police lining the bridge. Some migrants tore open a fence on the Guatemala side of the bridge and threw two young children, perhaps age 6 or 7, and their mother into the muddy waters about 40 feet below. They were rafted to safety in on the Mexican bank. Some on the bank yelled warnings to migrants on the bridge not to get on buses organized by Mexican authorities, claiming it was a ruse to deport them. There was no evidence of anyone being deported through such trickery, but the warnings made plenty leery of boarding. A Mexican migration of“cial who declined to give his name because he was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly said that between Friday and Saturday, authorities had deported by bus about 500 people who voluntarily decided to return. Migrants have commonly cited widespread poverty and gang violence in Honduras, one of the worlds deadliest nations by homicide rate, as their reasons for joining the caravan. At the gate, Mexican workers handed food and water to the migrants. Through the bars, a doctor gave medical attention to a woman who feared her young son was running a fever. Some migrants returned to Tecun Uman on the Guatemalan side to buy food and supplies. Local women brought water for the migrants to bathe. The caravan elicited a series of angry tweets and warnings from U.S. President Donald Trump early in the week, but Mexicos no-nonsense handling of the migrants at it southern border seems to have satis“ed him more recently. So as of this moment, I thank Mexico,Ž Trump said Friday at an event in Scottsdale, Arizona. I hope they continue. But as of this moment, I thank Mexico. If that doesnt work out, were calling up the military „ not the Guard.Ž He also warned the migrants that they should turn back. Theyre not coming into this country,Ž said Trump, who has sought to make the caravan and border security in general a campaign issue for Republicans ahead of the U.S. midterm elections. Also Friday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met in Mexico City with his Mexican counterpart, Luis Videgaray, with the caravan high on their agenda. The Mexican Government is fully engaged in “nding a solution that encourages safe, secure, and orderly migration,Ž State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert said Saturday, and both the United States and Mexico continue to work with Central American governments to address the economic, security, and governance drivers of illegal immigration.Ž Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said late Friday that Mexico does not permit and will not permit entry into its territory in an irregular fashion, much less in a violent fashion.ŽMexico slowly processes caravan migrants at Guatemala border AP PHOTOMexican navy personnel hand out food to Central American migrants stuck in no mans land on the bridge over the Suchiate River that is the border between Guatemala and Mexico, near Ciudad Hidalgo, Mexico, Saturday. The entry into Mexico via the bridge has been closed. The migrants have moved about 30 feet back from the gate that separates them from Mexican police to establish a buer zone. About 1,000 migrants now remain on the bridge between Guatemala and Mexico. By MARI YAMGUCHI and FRANK JORDANSASSOCIATED PRESSTOKYO „ European and Japanese space agencies said an Ariane 5 rocket successfully lifted a spacecraft carrying two probes into orbit Saturday for a joint mission to Mercury, the closest planet to the sun. The European Space Agency and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency said the unmanned BepiColombo spacecraft successfully separated and was sent into orbit from French Guiana as planned to begin a seven-year journey to Mercury. They said the spacecraft, named after Italian scientist Giuseppe BepiŽ Colombo, was in the right orbit and has sent the “rst signal after the liftoff. ESA says the 1.3 billion-euro ($1.5 billion) mission is one of the most challenging in its history. Mercurys extreme temperatures, the intense gravity pull of the sun and blistering solar radiation make for hellish conditions. The BepiColombo spacecraft will have to follow an elliptical path that involves a ”y-by of Earth, two of Venus and six of Mercury itself so it can slow down before arriving at its destination in December 2025. When it arrives, BepiColombo will release two probes „ Bepi and Mio „ that will independently investigate the surface and magnetic “eld of Mercury. The probes are designed to cope with temperatures varying from 430 degrees Celsius (806 F) on the side facing the sun, and -180 degrees Celsius (-292 F) in Mercurys shadow. The ESA-developed Bepi will operate in Mercurys inner orbit, and JAXAs Mio will be in the outer orbit to gather data that would reveal the internal structure of the planet, its surface and geological evolution. Scientists hope to build on the insights gained by NASAs Messenger probe, which ended its mission in 2015 after a four-year orbit of Mercury. The only other spacecraft to visit Mercury was NASAs Mariner 10 that ”ew past the planet in the mid-1970s. Mercury, which is only slightly larger than Earths moon, has a massive iron core about which little is known. Researchers are also hoping to learn more about the formation of the solar system from the data gathered by the BepiColombo mission.Europe, Japan send spacecraft on 7-year journey to MercuryBy BASSEM MROUEASSOCIATED PRESSBEIRUT „ The Islamic State group early Saturday released two women and four children they had been holding since July in the “rst part of an exchange with the Syrian government that will set free dozens of women related to members of the extremist group, opposition activists said. The women and children were among 30 people kidnapped by IS in the southern province of Sweida on July 25 when they carried out a raid that left at least 216 people dead. One woman died in IS custody while another was shot dead. In August, a 19-year-old man was also killed while in detention. The rare attacks in Sweida province, populated mainly by Syrias minority Druze, came amid a government offensive elsewhere in the countrys south. The coordinated attacks across the province, which included several suicide bombings, shattered the calm of a region that has been largely spared from the worst of the violence of Syrias seven-year-long civil war. Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the women and children were the “rst batch of the exchange, adding that more will follow. The Observatory said the government in return will release 60 women held by authorities and a $27 million ransom. The Suwayda 24 activist collective posted a picture of a woman and four children who were released adding that authorities freed 17 wives of IS “ghters and eight of their children. It added that 21 women and children still being held by IS will be set free in the coming days. Suwayda 24 identi“ed the released women as Rasmiya Abu Ammar and Abeer Shalgheen and her four children. I am very happy. My happiness is great but it would have had been better had they released my son with me,Ž Abu Ammar told reporters shortly after her release. Shalgheen, standing next to her two sons and two daughters, told Syrian TV we were con“dent that we will be set free but at some times (during detention) we were so desperate that we wished the ceiling fell on us.Ž The July 25 attack on the southern city of Sweida and nearby villages was one of the deadliest by the extremists since they lost most of the land they once held in Syria and Iraq. State news agency SANA quoted the governor of Sweida Amer Ashi as saying that the six hostages were freed as a result of the tight siege imposed by Syrian troops on the extremists in the desert area outside the city of Sweida. He said that more hostages will be freed soon. SANA quoted the women as saying that they lived through harsh conditions during their 88 days of detention adding that they suffered from sickness, hunger, cold and hot weather amid “ghting.IS frees 6 hostages in exchange with Syria SANA VIA APThis photo released by the Syrian ocial news agency SANA shows Abeer Shalgheen and her four children after being freed by the Islamic State group that kidnapped them on July 25 during a raid by the extremists on the southern province of Sweida, Syria, Saturday.

Name That CompanyI trace my roots back to 1968, when I was formed as one of the first hospital management companies in the United States. Over many years, I built and acquired lots of hospitals. In 1994, I merged with Columbia Healthcare, which had previously acquired Humanas hospital operations. I recently boasted 178 hospitals, plus 119 surgery centers, in 20 states and the United Kingdom. Ive been taken public and private several times in my life, and I am currently publicly traded, with a recent market value north of $46 billion. I have 249,000 employees and more than 28 million patient encounters each year. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. high payout ratios can warn you to minimize your losses. A huge dividend yield can be due to the stock having plunged in price, with few investors believing in it. If an industry enters a downswing, as happens in cyclical industries and during economic crises, there may not be any earnings to distribute, leading to dividend cuts or suspensions „ which can turn out to be temporary or permanent. Companies with inconsistent histories of dividend payments can be disappointments „ especially in a bear market, when external factors may strain their resources. Fortunately, many companies sport long dividend histories. Procter & Gamble, for example, has paid a dividend every year since 1891! A companys payout ratio „ calculated by dividing the annual dividend by earnings per share „ reflects the sustainability of its dividend. If a company is paying out more than its making, thats not a good sign, so a payout ratio well below 100 percent is best. To see some promising dividendpaying stocks weve recommended, check out our Motley Fool Stock AdvisorŽ service at .The Motley Fool TakeProfitable StorageIf youre looking for solid stocks with dividend yields over 3 percent, real estate investment trusts, or REITs, are an excellent option. Theyre required to pay out 90 percent of their taxable income to shareholders, and many pay 100 percent. One REIT for investors to consider is Public Storage (NYSE: PSA), which has a dividend yield recently over 4 percent. Public Storage primarily acquires, develops and operates self-storage facilities, and it boasts more than 2,400 facilities in 38 states and 228 facilities in western Europe. It generates revenue through rental income from tenants, and it can boost that by raising prices in supply-constrained markets or via higher occupancy rates. On the downside, tenant leases tend to be short-term in nature, which can lead to a more cyclical business. Public Storage offers a lot of stability. Over the past few quarters, its occupancy rate has easily topped 90 percent „ and its even stronger in the supply-constrained West Coast regions. It also has more market share than the next three largest publicly traded self-storage companies combined. Investors can enjoy its dominant market-share position, thanks to its early acquisition strategy that gobbled up facilities in a highly fragmented industry. People will always need a place to store extra stuff; that demand isnt going away anytime soon. That makes Public Storage well worth considering for long-term investors seeking income. Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentListen to Your SpouseAs a man, I should have known better when my loving spouse said she did not understand why a real estate limited partnership was a good investment for our (very modest) college savings for our daughters and/or future house purchase. But I, of course, in my male wisdom, not only listened to the brokerage salesperson, but also elected to invest in it in my IRA. Well, it was later revealed that my brokerage was misbehaving, and it wiped out many thousands of investors, pushing limited partnerships and suggesting that they were as safe as CDs. I lost the entire $2,000 investment in my IRA. And by the way, I shouldnt have had a tax-advantaged investment in my IRA anyway, as the IRA is already tax-advantaged. You pay your money for some education. I also try to listen to my spouse more. „ B.H., online The Fool Responds: You learned some great lessons. For starters, some investments are better suited for IRAs than others. Stocks you expect to grow the fastest and securities paying hefty interest or dividends might be good for your Roth IRA, as you can expect not to be taxed on withdrawals. Tax-free bonds, on the other hand, neednt be in a tax-advantaged account. Meanwhile, know that many limited partnerships are fine investments, but they do work a little differently than common stocks, and you should read up before investing. A Reorganized S&P 500QI heard that the S&P 500 recently reorganized itself. What does that mean? „ A.B., Winona, MinnesotaAThe Standard & Poors 500 index of 500 big companies is adjusted regularly, with some companies being removed from the index while others are added to replace them. For example, Twitter was added to the index in June to replace Monsanto, as Monsanto was being acquired by the German company Bayer and would no longer be a stand-alone company or stock. The index recently underwent a bigger transformation than usual, though, as it changed how it classifies and groups certain companies. Gone is the Telecoms sector, replaced by a new Communications Services sector. The new sector will contain not only companies that provide various communication platforms but also companies offering media content. Some of its components will be Comcast, AT&T, Verizon Communications, Walt Disney, Facebook, Twitter, Netflix and Googles parent, Alphabet. The change was made to better classify companies with operations that span both communication channels and content. The reorganization wont really affect those invested in the overall S&P 500 index, but if youve invested in any funds specializing in various sectors, the holdings in them may well have changed. ***QWhat do you think about investing in companies that have filed for bankruptcy protection? Their stocks look cheap „ might they not recover and be good investments? „ R.Y., Strasburg, VirginiaAIts best to steer clear of bankruptcies. Holders of common stock tend to get little or nothing when companies emerge from bankruptcy, while creditors and others might get some pennies on the dollar. These companies also often emerge with new stock, their old stock rendered worthless. Give them some time to perform post-bankruptcy before considering investing.Want more information about stocks? Send us an email tos SchoolKnow Your Dividend Red FlagsIt can be hard to beat dividend stocks. The best ones not only pay you regularly throughout the year (and increase those payouts over time), but their share prices also grow. Still, just like other stocks, dividend payers are not guaranteed to do right by you. Learn to spot red flags and you may be able to avoid some losses. Researchers Eugene Fama and Kenneth French, studying data from 1927 to 2014, found that dividend payers outperformed non-payers, averaging 10.4 percent annual growth vs. 8.5 percent. Meanwhile, dividends have accounted for 42 percent of the return of the S&P 500 Index between 1930 and 2017, per Morningstar data. Still, every year, plenty of companies reduce or even eliminate their payouts „ often in times of trouble, when their stock prices are also heading south.

The Sun | Sunday, October 21, 2018 E/N/C Page 7 CROSSWORD PUZZLE DEAR ABBY HELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY: Ive had it up to here with my crabby next-door neighbor. She grows vegetables in her garden „ squash and pumpkins at this time of year. Our properties are separated by a wire fence. A few days before Halloween last year, a friend brought her two grandsons, who are 4 and 6, for a visit. They were excited to nd a pumpkin in my yard that weighed about 10 pounds and managed to get it into my house because they wanted to make a jacko-lantern. No sooner did I reach for the phone to tell my neighbor what they had done than she came banging at my door accusing the boys of theft! To make peace, I handed the pumpkin to her with my apologies. This morning I noticed two pumpkins have tendrils that have crept through the fence and are now growing on my property. More than one person has told me, Theyre on your property, so they belong to you.Ž Another has said that if my tree grows over her property, she has the right to trim the branches. Ergo: I get to keep the pumpkins. I think a fair solution is to keep one pumpkin and give her the other. But Crabby CathyŽ might have other ideas. Before this gets ugly again, what do you say? „ PUMPKIN PILFERER IN PETALUMA, CALIF. DEAR P.P.: Your crabbyŽ neighbor was correct. Your friends grandsons DID help themselves to her pumpkin, and it was wrong. You and your friend should both have apologized to the woman when you realized they had purloined the pumpkin, returned it and taken the kids to the store to buy one they could cut up. If you pull the trick youre planning, it wont necessarily be a treat. You may escalate an already unpleasant situation beyond pumpkin season, and I dont recommend it. DEAR ABBY: I volunteer for a group that supports a cause close to my heart. Our group supports the local chapter in any way we can, and were currently preparing for a fundraiser. In an eort to get donations I have contacted some large national businesses and some small local ones. I try to send an email if I can, so I wont interrupt the owner during business hours and get an answer either when business is slow or after hours. Many of the small businesses have not responded, and it has been well over a month since I contacted them. Would it be rude to contact them again to ensure they received my original message, or would it be better if I went in person to talk to someone? I understand not every business can aord to donate, but having a denite answer would be helpful. „ WELCOMING DONATIONS DEAR WELCOMING DONATIONS: I have always believed the personal touch is the best, particularly when youre putting a touchŽ on someone for money.

Page 8 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 21, 2018By ROBERT BURNSAP NATIONAL SECURITY WRITERWASHINGTON „ With his demand that the Pentagon create a new military service „ a Space Force to assure American dominance in spaceŽ „ President Donald Trump has injected urgency into a long-meandering debate over the best way to protect U.S. interests in space, both military and commercial. At the same time, his approach has left many struggling to understand the basics, such as what a Space Force would do and how much it might cost. The Pentagon is expected to have enough details “lled out by early next year to include a Space Force plan in its 2020 budget request to Congress. Until then, the idea has taken on a life of its own at Trumps political rallies, powered at least in part by his con”ating of the nations civilian space program with the militarys separate role of providing space-based navigation and communications satellites. At a June rally in Minnesota, for example, Trump alluded to his decision in December 2017 to refocus the civilian space program to human exploration as a “rst step toward returning an astronaut to the Moon. This prompted some in the crowd to chant, Space Force, Space Force!Ž Trump responded by ticking off the names of the current military services and adding, Now were going to have the Space Force. We need it.Ž But just what is this thing? Some may think it would assemble a razzle-dazzle new army for the heavens that would deploy soldiers in space or arm astronauts with galactic superweapons. Analysts say the reality is that building space muscle is more about reordering the way the Pentagon already uses space than about combat. In “ts and starts, the military has been trying for decades to reorganize and accelerate technological advances in space. Some blame the Air Force, which has had the lead, for underinvesting in space because it prefers spending on warplanes. Details are still in play, but the main idea is this: “nd more effective ways to defend U.S. interests in space, especially the constellations of satellites that U.S. ground, sea and air forces rely on for navigation, communications and surveillance. These roles make them increasingly tempting military targets even as China and Russia work on ways to disrupt, disable and even destroy American satellites. This isnt science “ction. This isnt about creating space marines or some expeditionary space force that is going to go out and conquer the universe,Ž says Todd Harrison, director of the aerospace security project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. This is simply a reorganizationŽ of existing space assets so that they can be use more effectively in a uni“ed chain of command with one person in charge. Still, questions abound as some in the Pentagon talk about someday basing anti-missile weapons in space. Would a Space Force, which has yet to be authorized by Congress, consume an intelligence agency such as the National Reconnaissance Of“ce, responsible for building and operating reconnaissance satellites? What about the Missile Defense Agency, which runs ground-based anti-missile systems that rely on space to defend U.S. territory? Also to be determined is how it would connect, if at all, to the security policy goals of U.S. military allies and to U.S. civilian space entities to realize Trumps declared vision of gleaming new spaceshipsŽ built to conquer the unknown?Ž Trump publicly raised the prospect of a Space Force in March. In seemingly offhanded comments to Marines in California he said, You know, I was saying it the other day, because were doing a tremendous amount of work in space. I said maybe we need a new force. Well call it the Space Force. And I was not really serious. Then I said, What a great idea.Ž Three months later, on June 18, the great ideaŽ became an order. Trump told the Pentagon to immediately get started on building a Space Force. Since then, Space ForceŽ has become a staple at Trump political rallies. William D. Hartung, director of the arms and security project at the Center for International Policy and a longtime Pentagon critic, has written that Space ForceŽ could become the rhetorical equivalent of the WallŽ „ a big idea that appeals to Trumps base but would be wildly impractical and hugely expensive to implement.Ž Just how expensive it might be is a matter of debate. The Air Force has estimated that it might cost $13 billion in the “rst “ve years. Others, including Harrison, say thats an exaggeration. In late August, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said he was awaiting staff work on an estimate to be included in next years defense budget request. Tom Nichols, an author and professor of national security affairs at the U.S. Naval War College at Newport, Rhode Island, said no one should think a Space Force will produce an economic windfall of space contracts. People who think a space force will create a new economic boom dont realize that our space infrastructure already exists,Ž he wrote an email, stressing that he was speaking in a private capacity. Any additional spending will likely be concentrated in research and knowledge-centric areas, not depressed manufacturing states. Put simply: We are not going to start building Klingon battle cruisers or the Moonraker ”eet in West Virginia or Ohio.Ž Misconceptions aside, Harrison and many other defense analysts argue that a Space Force is needed. In Harrisons view, its about consolidating authority and responsibility for national security space in a single chain of command: reorganization, in other words, and building a bigger cadre of space strategy professionals. He argues that the space workforce now is so scattered across the military services and the intelligence agencies that it has not been possible to create a viable career path that will attract the right people. He likens the Space Force proposal to the creation of the Air Force in 1947. It was not built from scratch. It was made a separate military department after having resided in the Army as the Army Air Corps. Although a Space Force would require its own civilian and military leadership and presumably its own uniforms and additional personnel, other steps to consolidate the space chain of command would be bureaucratic. In fact, one of the main moves already in motion is to recreate U.S. Space Command, which existed from 1985 to 2002, when it was disbanded to establish U.S. Northern Command in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Although Space Command went away, its functions did not. They were absorbed by U.S. Strategic Command, and the Air Force retained its lead role in space through Air Force Space Command.Trump space force plan is grounded in real needs but hazy AP PHOTOIn this Aug. 9 “le photo, Vice President Mike Pence gestures during an event on the creation of a U.

The system had to send in the divers nearly 100 feet into a sewer well after the wipes, congealed by grease and other items sent into the pipes, clogged the suction intake pumps to the Plum Island Wastewater Treatment Center on James Island. The divers couldnt smell in their suits or see in the inky darkness. But as soon as they came back up, they got a bleach bath still in their suits. It just wasnt wipes. The divers found pieces of metal, a baseball and less unusual items like tampons, string, hair, makeup pads and assorted paper, authorities said. A push to remind people that ”ushable wipes often arent ”ushable has helped some in the past few years, Charleston Water System Chief Operating Of“cer Andy Fairey told The Post and Courier of Charleston. But mostly, employees have found better ways to keep the balls of used wipes from clogging pipes and pumps, Fairey said. The problem with the pumps earlier this month actually happened because the system was trying to be proactive, reducing the water ”ow in sewage pipes to prepare for possible heavy rain as Hurricane Michael approached, Fairey said. But those rains never came, and the pumps pulled in clots of wipes that were lining the bottom of the pipes, Fairey said.Workers take dive to unclog sewer pumps PHOTOS BY CHARLESTON WATER SYSTEM VIA APThis photo provided by Charleston Water System on Saturday, shows divers getting ready to deep dive into the sewer.

C6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 21, 2018 US mortgage rates fall slightly 30-year at 4.85 percent The Associated Press WASHINGTON Long-term U.S. mortgage rates dipped slightly this week, taking a pause after weeks of steady increases stoked by rising interest rates. Home borrowing rates remain at their highest levels in more than seven years, with the key 30-year rate approach ing 5 percent. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday the rate on 30-year, fixed-rate mort gages declined to an average 4.85 percent this week from 4.90 percent last week. Last weeks average was the highest level for the benchmark rate since spring 2011. A year ago, it stood at 3.88 percent. The average rate on 15-year, fixed-rate loans eased to 4.26 percent this week from 4.29 per cent last week. Anxiety over rising interest rates a consequence of a strong economy has roiled financial markets in recent weeks and spilled over into the housing market. The combination of higher borrowing costs and increasing home prices has made home ownership less affordable. Interest rates on Treasury bonds, which climbed to seven-year highs last week as their prices dropped, steadied this week. The yield on the key 10-year Treasury note, which can influence mortgage rates, was at 3.15 per cent Wednesday, down from 3.16 percent last week. Rising interest rates have sent mortgage pay ments climbing twice as fast as home values, with typical monthly payments now 15.4 per cent higher than they were a year ago, real estate data company Zillow said in a research note on Wednesday. Factoring in the 6.5 per cent gain in home values, it now costs about $118 a month more to buy the same house today compared with a year ago. Still, the economy and consumer sen timent remain very robust, and that will sustain (home) purchase demand, particularly in affordable markets and neighborhoods, said Freddie Mac chief economist Sam Khater. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. The average fee on 30year fixed-rate mortgag es was unchanged from last week at 0.5 point. The fee on 15-year mort gages fell to 0.4 point from 0.5 point. The average rate for five-year adjustable-rate mortgages rose to 4.10 percent from 4.07 percent last week. The fee held steady at 0.3 point.

Friday afternoon at Beef OBradys in Punta Gorda, the Tarpons coaches and players gathered for a team meal, but the signi“cance of the turnout took on greater meeting. The Tarpons presented Linda and Phil Wilson with a check for $2,200, with the proceeds going to the American Cancer Society, as part of the Tarpons efforts to raise awareness for breast cancer. The team sold pink long and short sleeve t-shirts. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. The Tarpons honored breast cancer survivors Sept. 28, at their home game against Island Coast. We wanted to go a little bit above and beyond with this thing this year, rather than just wear pink tape on our wrist,Ž said Binky Waldrop, Charlotte Tarpons head football coach. The kids wore pink jerseys and they get to keep those. Everything we did that week, we had a great understanding of why we did it. Thats something that theyll have in their closet forever to remember.Ž Linda Wilson, a breast cancer survivor, accepted the check with her husband, Phil Wilson, on behalf of the American Cancer Society. The Wilsons have been involved with Charlotte High School for more than four decades. Waldrop also recognized WrightWay Emergency Services for their part in the fundraiser. The things that these two people have done for the community has been phenomenal.,Ž said Waldrop. Were just happy we could make a little donation. Its not much, but its really a lot of money for just selling t-shirts. Were happy to be able to do this. Its a feel good thing. We put it on the kids. They had a lot of stake in this.

Koepka had a three-round total of 13-under 203. Ian Poulter, who shot 68 Saturday, was tied for second place with second-round leader Scott Piercy, who had a 72. The 28-year-old Koepka, who trailed by one stroke after two rounds, will move to the top of the world rankings if he wins the tournament and former No. 1 Justin Thomas, the defending champion here, does not “nish any better than second. Thomas shot a 71 Saturday and is at 1 under, 12 strokes behind Koepka and tied for 43rd. It would be Koepkas “rst appearance at No. 1. Dustin Johnson is currently No. 1, Koepka is third and Thomas fourth. Johnson and No. 2 Justin Rose are not playing this week. There were six golfers tied for fourth in South Korea, including Rafa Cabrera Bello, who shot 65 Saturday, and “rst-round leader Chez Reavie (70). Shubhankar Sharma of India had the round of the day, a 64, to move to 3 under, 10 strokes behind Koepka. Koepka, the three-time major champion who was recently voted the Player of the Year on the PGA Tour, started with eight straight pars.

PAUL, Minn. „ J.T. Browns past year has been nothing short of busy and “lled with changes. After Brown spent the “rst six years of his professional career in the Lightning organization, the team placed him on waivers in January. He spent the rest of the 201718 season with Anaheim. In the offseason, he signed with the Wild, his hometown team. He settled into a Minnesota home with his wife, Lexi, and young daughter, Lily, who will soon be an older sister with a baby boy due in December. Brown also became the “rst NHL player to peacefully protest during the national anthem when he raised his “st on Oct. 7, 2017, before a game against the Panthers in order to bring awareness to police brutality, racial injustice and inequalities.Ž He announced he would no longer raise his “st during the national anthem on Oct. 18. Shortly after, he accepted an invitation from Tampa police chief Brian Dugan to spend a day with Tampa police. Brown has continued to participate in a variety of programs and events to help the community, including a 24-hour Twitch. tv video game stream that he held to raise money for Hockey is for Everyone. Ahead of Saturdays game, the Times caught up with Brown: What has the past year been like for you? Its de“nitely been different. Obviously, a change of scenery. Spent a majority of my career with Tampa and their organization, but its been a good change for me to come back home.Ž What will it be like playing against the Lightning? Im sure it will be weird. Thats really the only thing I can think of. Obviously, the “rst time playing against a lot of the guys I played with for the past four, “ve years. Im sure once the game gets started, kind of all that goes away.Ž What are you taking away most from your time in Tampa as a hockey player? A lot of it comes from the culture that was around Tampa and the guys that were in the room. You take everything from the coaching staff on down, it was a good situation. We had a lot of good runs there. Youve just got to try and use as much of that as possible. Obviously, Im older and have a little more experience now.Ž It was about a year ago that you peacefully protested during the national anthem. (The time since has) been good. Me, myself and my family just trying to “nd our ƒ I dont know how to exactly word it. Since then, just trying to “nd what outlet is going to be the best way for us to obviously not just sit back but at the same time focus on the things that really matter outside of hockey.Ž You made an effort to become involved with Tampa police of“cers, participating in the ride along. What did you take away from that experience, as well as other community events and programs? To be able to use some of the things I tried to do in the past and make an improvement, coming here to Minnesota. We had a little experience working with the Tampa police department. I think I gained a good friend out of it, too. ƒ Chief Dugan, he has texted me since I left and went to Anaheim and since I left and went to Minnesota, he has still kept up and has sent some texts back and forth. Thats one thing I wasnt really expecting out of it, but at the same time, I am very grateful for it. Going forward, Im looking to not necessarily have the exact same thing but try to do something along those lines. Keep evolving it.Ž You worked alongside Lightning owner Jeff Vinik on some community-related programs and events. What was your experience like with him over the years? Jeff was very good. We had plenty of good talks and how were we going to get the message across in the best way possible. Also, what could he do to help me? That was kind of his main question. Me and him would go back and forth and talk. He would use his connections to get me in touch with the police of“cers as well as him being there. The biggest thing for me was him saying, What can I do to help? I want to be able to help you.

The Charlotte High School graduate played in “ve of seven games, matching his total appearances during the whole 2017 season. The 6-foot-3 sophomore completed six of seven pass attempts for 47 yards during an Oct. 13 win over William Jewell, for which North Port High product Zach Hand started at offensive tackle. Simms rushed four times for 13 yards, including a 1-yard touchdown in the third quarter. The score was his “rst of the season. Simms, who redshirted the 2016 season, completed “ve of nine attempts for 35 yards in the previous game and also had four rushes for 13 yards. More football Missouri Western State University quarterback Dom Marino rushed 14 times for 121 yards, including touchdowns of 43 and 9 yards, against Central Oklahoma. The Venice High graduate led players from both teams in rushing. He completed 12-of-24 passes for 118 yards but threw two interceptions. Wofford College freshman T.J. Luther had a 38-yard kickoff return against Furman. The wide receiver out of Port Charlotte High had a 16-yard reception. Running back DVonte Price of Florida International University carried nine times for 31 yards against Middle Tennessee State. He played for the Tarpons. Georgia Southern University running back Matt LaRoche, a past Indian, had six rushes for 26 yards against Texas State. Another from the Indians, Virginia Tech defensive lineman Jarrod Hewitt made two tackles against North Carolina. Coastal Carolina University quarterback Bryce Carpenter completed nine of 19 pass attempts for 133 yards in a loss to Louisiana Monroe. The former Indian rushed 17 times for 56 yards. Jaivon Heiligh of Coastal Carolina had two catches for 32 yards against Louisiana Monroe. He competed for Venice.

The Charlotte High School graduate is the lone freshman „ and only Floridian „ on the squad of eight. Hes a good kid. He does everything we ask him to do,Ž head coach Dale Boring said. Hes pretty much going at the rate we expected.Ž McClary used the summer to become accustomed to the longer distances of college races. I increased six miles every week and peaked out at 70 miles a week,Ž he said. Early this season the runners had been doing 65 miles a week but are now running 55, including a 14-mile run during the weekend, he said, as the season nears its homestretch. The summer training got him into race form, which showed from the beginning. He “nished third among the Vikings in the September season opener, the Griffon Open 7K. His body fat was real low,Ž Boring said. He was ripped.Ž McClary was “fth among the Vikings in the next three races. In the Oct. 6 Gary Stoner Invitational, he covered the 8K course in a personal best of 31:30. He said he tries to position himself in the middle pack, within distance of the lead group, and passes runners as the race progresses. We generally get out a lot faster,Ž he said. Its a lot more bunched up than normal.Ž Boring said he doesnt suggest a certain race strategy. Rather, he said, We basically set up goals so he is somewhere he needs to be. So its not too fast for him.Ž The terrain has required an adjustment. The courses are a lot harder,Ž McClary said. Its muddy and unstable ground.Ž Because of the difference in soil, the wet courses have areas that are like sludge,Ž he said. Its a bit more dif“cult terrain to tackle.Ž With his history of running on ”at land, he has encountered courses with hills. One such case was the Benedictine Rocky Raven Invite, where he had his slowest 8K time this season. He said the course had 400 meters of a gradual incline.

Hartman hooked up with Jack Freudenthal on a 9-yard touchdown pass to put Wake Forest ahead 10-0, but the Demon Deacons didnt score on their next 11 drives until a touchdown drive in the games final six minutes. Were not where we want to be,Ž Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson said. This is not where I thought wed be, but it is what it is and you have to make the best of it. All of these young kids getting reps are going to start getting better.Ž Brian Burns and Joshua Kaindoh had two of Florida States five sacks. The Seminoles now have 24 sacks this season.

Injuries have crushed the depth of the unit, with three linebackers out for the season. The Demon Deacons only scholarship linebacker, Justin Strnad, had 12 tackles to lead a patched-up group. Free safety Luke Masterson moved up to linebacker and had five tackles against Florida State. Ive just never been through anything like this in 19 years of being a head coach that you get that cleared out at one position,Ž Clawson said. We are paper thin.

It was another frustrating performance by the Demon Deacons injury-depleted defense, which had allowed 36.8 points per game coming into Saturday.

UCF „ which was outgained 496-427 „ went up 20-3 by scoring on four consecutive possessions in the second quarter, then made it a full-”edged rout with those late big plays. Receiver Quadry Jones threw a 42-yard touchdown pass to Adrian Killins on a trick play, and Matthew Wright kicked three “eld goals for the Knights. With Milton sitting this one out while in full uniform from the sideline, Mack was 12 of 20 for 69 yards but was more dangerous with his legs, rushing 7 yards for an early touchdown. Freshman Holton Ahlers was 29 of 53 for 406 yards with a 29-yard touchdown pass to Trevon Brown, and added 69 yards rushing in his “rst start. But his fumble while attempting a jump pass inside the 5-yard line was returned by Evans for the game-sealing score. The Pirates (2-5, 0-4) have lost three straight and four of “ve. Jake Verity put ECU up 3-0 midway through the “rst with a 34-yard “eld goal.THE TAKEAWAYUCF: The big question in the aftermath of this one centered on Milton, after the quarterback said earlier in the week that he tweaked his ankle while scoring the goahead touchdown a week earlier at Memphis. The Knights missed him perhaps more than the “nal score would indicate „ ECU was on the verge of making this a one-score game with 10 minutes left before Evans fumble return. Now UCF has an open week to get him closer to 100 percent before a visit to dangerous Temple „ which took down No. 20 Cincinnati on Saturday. East Carolina: The Pirates lost their sixth straight against Top 25 opponents, havent beaten one since 2014 and havent knocked off a top-10 team in a decade. But this one didnt feel like so many of the others „ and not necessarily because the Knights werent at full strength. This was a measurable sign of progress, because each of ECUs previous four ranked opponents hung at least 60 points on them.UP NEXTUCF: Has an open weekend before trying for their 21st consecutive victory on Nov. 1 against Temple. East Carolina: Also has no game until playing host to Memphis on Nov. 3.UCFFROM PAGE 1B Cronkite, the nations third-leading rusher at 151.4 yards per game, “nished with 103 yards on 16 attempts for his school record-tying “fth consecutive 100-yard game. Kevin Mensah rushed for 120 yards and two TDs for UConn (1-6, 0-4), which also got 197 yards and two touchdowns on the ground from quarterback David Pindell. USF, one of two remaining unbeaten teams in the AAC, has rallied from double-digit, fourth-quarter de“cits to win three times this season. With UConn entering the game yielding nearly 54 points per game, the heavily favored Bulls didnt seem to be candidates to trail 7-0 late in the second quarter. But Barnett threw interceptions on USFs “rst two possessions, UConn turned the “rst one into a touchdown, and the Bulls offense was unable to get on track until Ford “nished a seven-play, 80yard drive with a 15-yard run that evened the score less than a minute before halftime. It was only the second time UConn hasnt trailed at the half all season. But the prospect for an upset faded quickly. Randall St. Felix, who had two receptions for 123 yards, turned a quick sideline throw in front of the USF bench into a 75-yard on the “rst play from scrimmage of the second half. Two defenders whiffed trying to make the tackle, giving the speedy receiver a clear path to the end zone.THE TAKEAWAYUConn: Until Saturday night, the Huskies hadnt held an opponent to fewer than 49 points. Despite yielding 346 yards rushing, they were able to stay within striking distance much of the night with a productive running attack (322 yards) of their own. USF: The Bulls did what theyve done all season „ win while looking vulnerable against almost everyone they play. The offense gained 611 yards, but was forced to settle for “eld goals attempts on two long drives. Defensively, theyre bound to not be happy after allowing both Pindell and Mensah to rush for more than 100 yards. POLL IMPLICATIONSWith No. 16 North Carolina State and No. 20 Cincinnati losing for the “rst time, USF is one of six unbeaten teams remaining in the Football Bowl Subdivision. The Bulls didnt earn any style points against UConn, though, so it wont be surprising if their climb is minimal in the next AP poll.USFFROM PAGE 1B AP PHOTOConnecticut running back Kevin Mensah (34) “nds a hole in the South Florida defense to score on a 10-yard touchdown run during the “rst half of an NCAA college football game Saturday, in Tampa, Fla.


Page 4 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 21, 2018By MARC TOPKINTAMPA BAY TIMESST. PETERSBURG „ Rocco Baldelli has sure been popular this off-season. And busy. The current Rays coach and former out“elder interviewed with “ve of the six teams looking to hire a manager „ the Angels, Blue Jays, Rangers, Reds and Twins. And he appears very much in the running for several of the jobs. That Baldelli, 37, emerged as a managerial candidate was not unexpected. He is young, bright, sharp, communicative, confident, humble, versed in analytics „ all characteristics that fit well with what teams seem to be looking for now in managers. Plus, he has the perspective of four years in a front/office scouting role. There were some whispers last winter of interest by the Yankees, and chatter going back years that he could someday manage. That the Rays are coming off a successful season, and were innovative in doing so, helped boost his appeal as well. Teams often want to copy others and will seek to emulate what Kevin Cash and Co. did well. That Baldelli, with four years experience as a coach and none managing, wound up a person of interest to so many teams was surprising. And probably ”attering to Baldelli, who has declined comment on all aspects of the situation. Based on whats been reported publicly, he may have been the only candidate to interview with “ve teams. (The Orioles are reportedly looking to hire a GM “rst then a manager.) Will Baldelli get one of the jobs? There appears to be three good chances. The Rangers seem high on Baldelli, with some chatter that after picking tough-guy Jeff Banister over Cash going into 2015 they now want to go the other way for a leader, and see Baldelli in that culture-building/positive-thinking mold. Baldelli also would seem a good “t with the analytic-driven execs running the Jays and Twins, who came from the Indians, where, for what its worth, Cash coached for two years before getting the Rays job. (In Minnesota, Baldelli is competing against former Rays hitting coach Derek Shelton, who spent 2018 as the Twins bench coach). The Reds appear to have passed, given planned second interviews with David Bell, Brad Ausmus and Joe Girardi. With Girardi withdrawing, Bell may be the favorite. (Rays bench coach Charlie Montoyo was also one of their original 12 candidates.) The Angels are a bit of a wild card, having been the hardest to read as they transition from strong-willed and oldschool Mike Scioscia. Eric Chavez has been rumored there. Also relevant to this process: How readyŽ „ beyond the lack of game-running experience, which no longer seems to matter „ do teams deem Baldelli to be. Whether Baldelli is sure he wants to make the commitment to manage, rather than pursuing the GM-type track others have predicted for him. And, should there be multiple offers, where the Rhode Island raised Baldelli sees the best situation, chance to win and lifestyle. With the least appealing opening, the Reds are trying to strike “rst; the others may be aiming for post-World Series/pre-GM meeting announcements.Job fairThe Rays plan to keep their coaching staff as is if no one gets hired elsewhere. If they lose Baldlelli, whose title is major-league “eld coordinator, they could reorganize, given his broad duties working with out“elders, coordinating development and serving as sort of an assistant bench coach. For example, assistant hitting coach Ozzie Timmons could move off “rst base and they could hire there. ƒ Senior VP Chaim Blooms opportunity for the Mets GM job should be further de“ned this week when “nalists will have second interviews and be made available to the media. He is reportedly also a candidate for the Giants GM job.Rays tales: Why Rocco Baldelli is a hot candidate for manager openings MLB By KYLE HIGHTOWERAP SPORTS WRITERBOSTON „ Chris Sale has resumed throwing and says hes ready to pitch Game 1 of the World Series after missing an AL Championship Series start and being hospitalized with an illness. The Boston Red Sox ace also had some fun with reporters while discussing what made him sick. Sale threw a bullpen session during Bostons workout on Saturday and says he will go through his normal routine before taking the mound at Fenway Park for Tuesdays opener against either the Los Angeles Dodgers or the Milwaukee Brewers. Sale was initially slated to pitch Game 5 of the ALCS against Houston but was ruled out after the illness left him weak. He says the ailment was a stomach thingŽ and he just kind of got sick.Ž But he also joked it was caused by irritation from a belly-button ring. Although Sale remained deadpan during the comment, he has not been observed with a pierced navel.Bostons Chris Sale back to normal, ready for World Series MLB: Boston Red Sox By PAUL SULLIVANCHICAGO TRIBUNE (TNS)While discussing a 107-year-old White Sox strikeout record he was closing in on back in September 2015, Chris Sale was staring at the lanyard holding my press credential. It was near the end of another dominant season gone to waste, and Sale clearly was tired of the losing. Its cool to talk about, to talk to your buddies and your family about stuff like this (record),Ž Sale told reporters. But I see a (reporter) wearing a postseason lanyard right there. You dont get to the postseason with strikeouts. You dont get to the playoffs with fancy numbers and stuff like that. You get there by wins, and I think everybody in this clubhouse and everybody around majorleague baseball can tell you that theres one thing thats important, and thats winning.Ž A little more than three years later, Sale “nally is where he always wanted to be: starting Game 1 of the World Series, which begins Tuesday night at Fenway Park. It has been a long and adventurous journey for the Red Sox ace, who started out in the White Sox bullpen in the summer of 2010 and quickly developed into one of the games elite starters. Sale was supposed to be leading the White Sox into the World Series, having signed a “veyear, $32.5 million deal with two team-option years during 2013 spring training that made him one of the games biggest bargains. The White Sox annually tried to surround him with enough talent to get to the postseason, but they “nally gave up after 2016 and dealt him to the Red Sox in the trade that kickstarted the rebuild. Most lauded the deal that brought top prospects Yoan Moncada and Michael Kopech to the White Sox. But Moncadas “rst full majorleague season this year was a disappointment, and Tommy John elbow surgery in September ended the promising beginning of Kopechs major-league career. Sale, meanwhile, has started the last two AllStar Games wearing a Red Sox uniform and has gone 29-12 with a 2.56 ERA and 545 strikeouts in 3721/3 innings. At one point this season he went 6-0 with an 0.20 ERA over seven starts, the best seven-start span since Bob Gibson posted an 0.14 ERA in 1968. But we havent seen the best of Sale in October, and who knows how long he will be allowed to go after being hospitalized with a stomach illness after starting Game 1 of the American League Championship Series. Sale battled shoulder issues during the second half and probably missed a chance at winning his “rst Cy Young Award by resting his arm to be strong for the postseason. He pitched only four innings in the ALCS loss to the Astros, allowing two runs on one hit, four walks and a hit batter. More worrisome was the fact Sales average fastball velocity dipped from 95 mph to 92 from his division series victory over the Yankees. But after waiting so long for this opportunity, Sale should be ready to return to his normal self on a prime-time stage with the nation watching. It will be a bittersweet moment for the White Sox, who knew they were dealing one of the best pitchers in franchise history when they sent Sale to Boston. He could be dif“cult to deal with at times, as evidenced by the episode in which he sliced up his teammates throwback uniforms so he wouldnt have to pitch in one and the day he ripped management over the decision to stop allowing Adam LaRoches son, Drake, to be with the team. Once he even tried to get into the visitors clubhouse after an on-“eld brawl with the Royals, hoping for Round 2. But the White Sox always chalked it up to Sales competitive nature, and nothing he could do off the “eld ever trumped what he did on the mound. Sale has one more season in Boston before hitting free agency, where he “gures to command one of the biggest contracts in the game. He never complained about his team-friendly contract, even after White Sox teammate Jeff Samardzija ”ed for a $90 million deal with the Giants after the 2015 season. Dont feel bad for me, man,Ž he told me at SoxFest in 2016. Im in a good spot, trust me. Ive said it a million times: I knew exactly what I was getting into when I got into it. My agent thoroughly traveled down every avenue that could possibly be traveled down. And Ill have my shot again hopefully.Ž When I asked Sale if he thought the traditionally conservative-spending White Sox would pony up the kind of money needed to keep him on the South Side for years to come, he said it was too hard to even talk aboutŽ playing elsewhere. I love Chicago and Im glad Im here now,Ž he said. I appreciate it while I have it.Ž White Sox fans appreciated Sale while he was in Chicago, and no doubt many will be rooting for him when he takes the mound Tuesday to start the World Series. Maybe someday he will come back to the place he loved, helping take the rebuild to the next step, as Jon Lester did in signing with the Cubs in 2014. You can always dream.

(AP) „ Tua Tagovailoa threw touchdown passes to four receivers and No. 1 Alabama started fast again in a 58-21 victory over Tennessee on Saturday. Alabama had touchdowns on its first four possessions while outscoring Tennessee 28-0 and outgaining the Volunteers 217-6 in the opening period. Alabama has outscored opponents 165-31, and Tennessee has been outscored 69-16 in first quarters this season. Tagovailoa went 19 of 29 for 306 yards before leaving midway through the third quarter with Alabama ahead 51-14. He took a big hit on his final play of the day, a 51-yard touchdown pass to Henry Ruggs III. Earlier, Tagovailoa connected on touchdown passes to Jerry Jeudy, Jaylen Waddle and Irv Smith Jr. The Heisman Trophy contender has thrown 25 touchdown passes without an interception this season. Alabama (8-0, 5-0 Southeastern Conference) beat Tennessee (3-4, 1-3) for the 12th straight year and had the highest points total either team has ever recorded in the 101-game history of the series. Alabama is scoring 54.1 points per game. Tennessee quarterback Keller Chryst went 9 of 15 for 164 yards with two touchdown passes after replacing injured starter Jarrett Guarantano in the second quarter.NO. 3 CLEMSON 41, NO. 16 NORTH CAROLINA STATE 7CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) „ Trevor Lawrence threw for a careerhigh 308 yards, Travis Etienne rushed for three touchdowns and Clemson turned an expected Atlantic Coast Conference showdown into a rout. The Tigers (7-0, 4-0) opened with seven straight wins for the third time in four seasons in topping the Wolfpack (5-1, 2-1) for the seventh consecutive season. It was the ACCs first matchup of undefeated teams this deep in a season since 2013, a game that also took place in Death Valley. But unlike five years ago when the Tigers were pummeled by eventual national champ Florida State 51-14, Clemson who took control early and never gave the Wolfpack a chance to rally. North Carolina State quarterback Ryan Finley came in leading the ACC at more than 324 yards passing a game. He managed just 156 yards passing with two interceptions and a fumble.NO. 5 LSU 19, NO. 22 MISSISSIPPI STATE 3BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) „ Michael Divinity Jr.s interception set up Nick Brossettes short touchdown run, Cole Tracy kicked four field goals, and LSU beat Mississippi State. Still, the Tiger Stadium crowd left angry after LSUs top linebacker, Devin White, was ejected for targeting in the fourth quarter, meaning he will not be eligible to play in the first half of the Tigers upcoming showdown with unbeaten and topranked Alabama. White appeared to lower his head as he leveled quarterback Nick Fitzgerald a moment after he released a pass that was intercepted by defensive back Kristian Fulton. The targeting penalty wiped out the turnover, and LSUs celebrations also drew two flags for unsportsmanlike conduct, resulting in 45 yards in penalties on one play. Safety John Battles interception prevented Mississippi State (4-3, 1-3) from scoring on the drive and virtually sealed the result Safety Grant Delpit came through with several drive-stalling plays for the Tigers (7-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference), including two interceptions and a fourth-down sack.NO. 6 MICHIGAN 21, NO. 24 MICHIGAN STATE 7EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) „ Shea Patterson threw two touchdown passes and Michigan snapped a streak of 17 consecutive losses to ranked teams on the road. The game was delayed for 1 hour, 15 minutes in the first quarter because of lightning in the area. The Wolverines (7-1, 5-0 Big Ten) had lost eight of 10 against their in-state rivals and those setbacks have led to them not winning a Big Ten title since 2004. The Spartans (4-3, 2-2) struggled to move the ball, getting held to 94 yards and failing to convert any of its 12 third downs. Pattersons 79-yard pass to Donovan Peoples-Jones put Michigan ahead late in the third quarter. He converted a fourthand-2 from the Michigan State 41 early in the fourth, setting up Ben Masons 5-yard run that gave the Wolverines a 21-7 lead. The Ole Miss transfer was 14 of 25 for 212 yards. Michigans Karan Higdon had 144 yards rushing on 33 carries against the nations topranked rushing defense.NO. 9 OKLAHOMA 52, TCU 27FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) „ Kyler Murray threw four touchdown passes, Kennedy Brooks and Trey Sermon had 100-yard rushing games with scores and Oklahoma rebounded from its only loss this season to beat TCU for the third time in 11 months. The Sooners (6-1, 3-1 Big 12) won their 18th consecutive true road game, never trailing after scoring touchdowns on each of their first four drives in their first game since losing to Texas two weeks ago. Brooks ran for 168 yards on 18 carries with an early 21-yard TD. Sermon ran 17 times for 110 yards and scored twice before walking gingerly off the field after being tended to by trainers with about 8 1/2 minutes left. This was a rematch of the Big 12 Conference championship game last December, when Oklahoma won three weeks after beating TCU (3-4, 1-3) in the regular season.NO. 10 UCF 37, EAST CAROLINA 10GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) „ Darriel Mack Jr. stepped in for Heisman Trophy hopeful McKenzie Milton and rushed for 120 yards and a touchdown, and UCF forced five turnovers en route to its 20th straight victory. Nate Evans returned a fumble 94 yards for a momentum-changing touchdown with 10:07 left, Greg McCrae added a 74-yard TD run and the Knights (7-0, 4-0 American Athletic) turned all those takeaways into 24 points. UCF „ which was outgained 496-427 „ went up 20-3 by scoring on four consecutive possessions in the second quarter, then made it a full-fledged rout with those late big plays. Receiver Quadry Jones threw a 42-yard touchdown pass to Adrian Killins on a trick play, and Matthew Wright kicked three field goals for the Knights. With Milton sitting this one out while in full uniform from the sideline, Mack was 12 of 20 for 69 yards but was more dangerous with his legs, rushing 7 yards for an early touchdown. The Pirates (2-5, 0-4) have lost three straight and four of five.NO. 14 KENTUCKY 14, VANDERBILT 7LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) „ Benny Snell Jr. rushed for 169 yards, including the go-ahead 7-yard run with 8:04 remaining that helped Kentucky pull away. The Wildcats (6-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) clinched bowl eligibility for a third consecutive season and stayed in contention in the East division with their third straight victory over the Commodores (3-5, 0-4). But it took linebacker Kash Daniels fourth-down forced fumble that Quinton Bohanna recovered at the 20 midway through the fourth quarter to jump-start Kentucky from game-long inconsistency. Snell took control from there, rushing 10 times for 74 yards on the drive that ended with his ninth TD run. The junior rushed 32 times for his 16th car eer 100-yard game on a blustery night that Kentucky had to work hard to outgain Vanderbilt 298-284.NO. 15 WASHINGTON 27, COLORADO 13SEATTLE (AP) „ Jake Browning threw a 26yard touchdown pass to Aaron Fuller on fourth down with less than four minutes remaining, and Washington held off Colorado. Rather than trying for a long “eld goal, Browning and the offense stayed on the “eld. Facing a blitz, Browning found Fuller on a quick slant with nothing but the end zone ahead. Salvon Ahmed and Kamari Pleasant both scored on touchdown runs in the “rst half for the Huskies (6-2, 4-1 Pac-12). They played without starting running back Myles Gaskin due to a shoulder injury. Washington linebacker Ben Burr-Kirven had 15 tackles and an interception. Steven Montez threw for 144 yards for Colorado (5-2, 2-2).NO. 18 PENN STATE 33, INDIANA 28BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) „ Trace McSorley passed for 220 yards, ran for 107 and had a hand in three touchdowns in Penn States victory over Indiana. Penn State (5-2, 2-2 Big Ten) rallied to snap a two-game losing streak after Indiana (4-4, 1-4) took a 21-20 lead in the third quarter on Steve Scotts 3-yard touchdown run. Johnathan Thomas took the ensuing kickoff back to the Indiana 5, setting up McSorley for the go-ahead touchdown on the next play. Brandon Wilson partially blocked the extra point, leaving Penn States lead at 26-21. Indiana forced Penn State to punt on the Nittany Lions next drive, but J-Shun Harris fumbled the punt return and turned the ball over. Five plays later, McSorley nearly walked into the end zone to make it 33-21 lead. Miles Sanders ran for 72 yards and a touchdown.NO. 19 IOWA 23, MARYLAND 0IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) „ Nate Stanley threw for 86 yards and a touchdown for Iowa. Anthony Nelson added a TD on a fumble recovery for the Hawkeyes (6-1, 3-1 Big Ten). They held the Terrapins (4-3, 2-2) to 115 yards and seven “rst downs on a day when wind gusts topped 40 mph. After settling for a pair of short “eld goals, Iowa went into halftime ahead 13-0 after Stanley found Brandon Smith for a 10-yard TD grab „ which Smith made with one hand „ with eight seconds left in the second quarter. Nelson, a defensive end, made it 23-0 late in the third quarter by falling on a botched handoff from backup quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome in the end zone. Ivory Kelly-Martin ran for 98 yards for Iowa.TEMPLE 24, NO. 20 CINCINNATI 17, OTPHILADELPHIA (AP) „ Anthony Russo threw a tying 20-yard touchdown pass with 49 second left to Brandon Mack, and then a 25-yarder to Isaiah Wright in overtime for Temple.

Cincinnati (6-1, 2-1) got a “rst down on its “rst play of overtime, but an errant snap behind quarterback Desmond Ridder left the Bearcats with second-and-21 and a personal foul pushed them even farther back. Ridders pass was intercepted by by Shaun Bradley on third-and-36 to end the game.NO. 23 WISCONSIN 49, ILLINOIS 20MADISON, Wis.

Tatum had just given the Celtics a three-point lead with two free throws with 7.9 seconds left and the Knicks called their final timeout. They had trouble getting the ball inbounded from the sideline, and Knicks guard Trey Burke had to race into the backcourt to retrieve it as the clocked ran down. He pulled up for a 3-pointer from well beyond the arc and Tatum jumped to contest it, fouling Burke for three free throws that could have tied it. But he missed the first and the Knicks couldnt grab the rebound when he intentionally missed the third. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 24 points for the Knicks, who lost rookie Kevin Knox to a sprained left ankle in the first quarter. Enes Kanter had 17 points and 15 rebounds before fouling out of their second two-point loss in two nights. 76ERS 116, MAGIC 115 PHILADELPHIA (AP) „ JJ Redick hit a 3-pointer with 17 seconds left to lift the 76ers over the Magic. Redick had his best game since moving to Philadelphias bench at the start of the season, scoring 31 points on 10of-20 shooting, including eight 3-pointers. Aaron Gordon had a chance to tie it with 10 seconds remaining but missed his second free throw, and a desperation heave by Terrance Ross missed the net entirely. Joel Embiid had 32 points and 10 rebounds for the 76ers, including 19 points by halftime. He did it with an outside game in the first half but was more of a force down low after intermission. RAPTORS 117, WIZARDS 113 WASHINGTON (AP) „ Taking over with Kawhi Leonard getting a night off, Kyle Lowry delivered 28 points and 12 assists Saturday night to help the Raptors improve to 3-0 with a victory over the Wizards. The Raptors rested Leonard on the second half of a back-to-back and third game in four days to open the season. Washington finished the game without ejected coach Scott Brooks. Bradley Beal scored 32 points, going 6 for 11 on 3s, and John Wall added 25 points and six assists for the Wizards, who are 0-2, with both games at home. Beal broke Washingtons franchise record for most 3-pointers in a career, surpassing Gilbert Arenas previous mark of 868 by making his 869th with a little more than 4 minutes left in the game. PACERS 132, NETS 112 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) „ Victor Oladipo had 25 points and seven rebounds to lead the Pacers to a victory over the Nets. Kyle OQuinn came off the bench and scored 14 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter. Bojan Bogdanovic and Tyreke Evans each scored 15 points for the Pacers (2-1), who bounced back following a 118101 loss at Milwaukee on Friday, the first night of a back-to-back. Joe Harris and Caris LeVert each scored 19 points for the Nets (12), who have lost seven straight at Indiana. PISTONS 118, BULLS 116 CHICAGO (AP) „ Blake Griffin had 33 points and 12 rebounds, Ish Smith scored all 15 of his points in the second half, including the game-winning basket, and the Detroit Pistons beat the Bulls 118-116 on Saturday night in Chicagos home opener. Griffin was 12 for 23 from the field, including 5 of 7 on 3-pointers, as Detroit won its second straight to start the season. Zach LaVine had 33 points on 12-of-22 shooting for Chicago, which dropped its second consecutive game. The Bulls played without starters Kris Dunn (excused absence) and Lauri Markkanen (sprained right elbow), and reserve Denzel Valentine (left ankle). With the score tied at 116, Smith drove through the defense for a layup with 5.4 seconds left. Detroit had a 60-58 halftime lead despite shooting 34 percent in the first two quarters. Griffin had 16 points on 5-of-7 shooting. LaVine had 19 first-half points for Chicago. The Pistons led 85-84 entering the fourth before the Bulls scored four straight points. Smith put Detroit back on top 89-88 and the Pistons held a slim advantage until LaVine hit a 3-pointer with 24.6 seconds left. After Smiths basket, Chicago had a chance to tie or go ahead with a 3, but LaVine lost the ball „ he was pressured by Griffin „ as he rose for a 3-pointer. HORNETS 113, HEAT 112 MIAMI (AP) „ Kemba Walker scored 39 points, including the game-winning free throw with a half-second left, and the Charlotte Hornets spoiled Dwyane Wades “nal home opener by topping the Miami Heat 113-112 on Saturday night. The Hornets led by 26 points midway through the third quarter, then wasted it all before Walker saved them on a night when he eclipsed the career 10,000-point mark. Wade scored to tie the game with 12.3 seconds left, setting up the final play. Walker drove on Miamis Rodney McGruder, wound up on the ground and referee Scott Wall called a blocking foul „ one the Heat argued to no avail. Walker made the first, missed the second and time expired before anyone could contain the rebound. Malik Monk scored 15 for Charlotte, and Marvin Williams added 13. Wade led the Heat with 21 points. Goran Dragic scored 20, McGruder finished with 19 and Hassan Whiteside grabbed 15 rebounds for Miami. Charlotte was 12 for 20 from 3-point range in the first half, fueling its run to the huge lead. The Hornets then went 1 for 12 from beyond the arc in the third quarter, and missed their first three tries from deep in the fourth quarter before Monk rattled one down for a 103-97 lead with about 5 minutes left. But it wasnt over, not by a long shot. Wade made a pair of 3-pointers, then set up Whiteside for a basket that got the Heat within 107-105. Miami kept chipping away, getting within 111-110 on a drive by McGruder with 46 seconds left. After Michael Kidd-Gilchrist made one of two foul shots, the Heat had the ball down two with 24.7 seconds left. Wade tried a 3 for the lead and missed badly „ so badly that he knew where the rebound was going. He scooted in, got the board himself and laid it in for a tie with 12.3 seconds left to mark the first time that the Hornets hadnt led in the second half. Thats when the Hornets gave the ball to Walker for their final play, and he delivered. The Heat led 15-6 early, and it didnt last long „ as the next 24 minutes were basically all Charlotte. The Hornets had separate runs of 11-2 and 20-6 in the second quarter to take a 72-52 lead, and Cody Zellers dunk midway through the third put the Hornets up 82-56. Miami outscored Charlotte 26-10 over the remainder of the third to get within 92-82 going into the final quarter. Dragic had 13 of his points in the third, and his alley-oop to Bam Adebayo for a dunk got the Heat within six less than a minute into the fourth.Tatum helps Celtics hold off Knicks AP PHOTOSBoston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum gestures after scoring a three-point goal during the rst half of an NBA basketball game against the New York Knicks, Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018, at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Yes, he is 22 points outside the cutoff line. Yes, he has to leapfrog a couple of other guys to make the “nal eight, who will contest the next three rounds before the season-ending race at Homestead. But Blaney has always considered the fast mileand-a-half track one of his best, even though hes yet to win here in seven career starts. He has led laps four times, was on the pole for the spring race last year and was strong this past spring before ultimately wrecking out. This is a good track for us. I cant think of another track to go to trying to win it,Ž Blaney said. Weve had a good chance, especially the “rst race this year before I wrecked ourselves. So hope we have a good shot Sunday to move on.Ž The trouble for Blaney is that just about everybody on the bubble is also strong at Kansas. Clint Bowyer, who is seventh and 21 points inside the cutoff line, considers the track his home after growing up in Emporia. Martin Truex Jr. is currently riding the bubble, 18 points to the good, and swept the races at Kansas last year before “nishing second to Kevin Harvick this past spring. Brad Keselowski is the “rst driver outside the cutoff, and while he has just three top-5 “nishes in 17 starts at Kansas, he quali“ed “fth on Friday „ right behind Blaney, his Penske Racing teammate, who is four points back of him as they jockey for a spot in the next round of the playoffs. Blaney said that dynamic hasnt created any tension in their garage. The two have continued to share ideas as they prepare for Sunday, which is the only way team owner Roger Penske would have it. Brad and I have always been open with each other, which is great,Ž Blaney said. Its our season pretty much, our chance at a championship is this weekend, but you try not to let that distract you and just do the best you can.Ž Kyle Larson and Alex Bowman are the two drivers that basically face must-win situations Sunday. Larson was penalized 10 points last week at Talladega for using unapproved materials to “x damage on his car, and that punishment was upheld through two rounds of appeals on Friday. That left the Chip Ganassi Racing driver in a 36-point hole, an uphill challenge made even more dif“cult after a wreck in practice forced him into a backup car and will land him at the back of the “eld for the start. But like Blaney and the rest of the contenders, Larson feels good about his chances at Kansas. In May, I felt really, really good,Ž he said. I made a mistake in qualifying and spun, we had to change tires, drove to the front pretty easily in the race, won the second stage, passed guys like Harvick and (Kyle) Busch and Truex, and Blaney was really good that day. Then Harvick passed me on one of the later restarts and then Blaney and I got together and we had to repair damage and stuff.Ž Larson was still able to recover and “nish fourth, but he left Kansas feeling as if he had the best car that day. At the very least, he was on even footing with Harvick and Blaney. Bowman is the only driver who mathematically must win, and even he feels good about his chances at Kansas. He won a couple of times at the track in ARCA and has been strong in his few Cup starts. This is one of my better tracks,Ž he said, so Im excited. I think we have a shot of winning for sure. ... Im glad its Kansas, I love this place, really enjoy it.Ž Joey Logano will start from the pole, giving him a good chance of earning stage points and securing his place in the next round „ hes currently “fth and 39 points ahead of the cutoff. Harvick quali“ed second, and at third in the playoff race he needs only to stay out of trouble to advance. Busch will start seventh and Kurt Busch will start 11th as both try to lock up spots in the next round. Each of them should be in good shape if he manages to avoid any kind of chaos.Bubble drivers have high hopes for Kansas elimination race NASCARon the 11th „ the only hole where he looked in any kind of trouble. It was good on the 11th, just to make sure I didnt have any bogeys, that was kind of the big thing,Ž Koepka said. I unfortunately threeputted the next (par-5 12th). Just got to work on my wedge game, which wasnt very good today.Ž Looking ahead to the “nal round, he added: My con“dence has always been pretty high. Anytime you can win three majors youre going to be feeling pretty good about yourself. To do what Ive done over the last two years has been special, but Im looking to build on that.Ž After a round of “ve birdies and a bogey, Poulter also knew what he needed to do on Sunday. Tomorrow, I think its not as windy as Thursday, so with that in mind, I think the scorings going to be pretty good,Ž said Poulter, who has improved to No. 35 in the rankings after coming close to losing his card on the PGA Tour in 2016. Tomorrow, Im going to need to make a few birdies. Obviously, Brooks is in cruise control right now and obviously I am going to need a shoot a low one.Ž Piercy, looking for his “rst individual win on the PGA Tour since the Barbasol Championship in July 2015, started with a birdie, but needed to make birdies on his last two holes to ensure he “nished on even-par. Im a little frustrated. I felt I rolled the ball really well today and I kept hitting lip after lip. A couple mistakes like hitting it in the cross bunker on the sixth.just a little sloppy and the ball-striking wasnt quite there,Ž said Piercy. Just made stupid little mental errors today and its hard to come back from it.Ž The $9.5 million tournament is the second in the PGA Tours threeweek Asian swing culminating in the WGC-HSBC Champions next week in Shanghai.KOEPKAFROM PAGE 1B adno=3621120-1 5301 Heron Creek Blvd. North Port.

BUSINESS/CLASSIFIEDS/ REAL ESTATE AVON PARK • LAKE PLACID • SEBRINGSECTION DSunday, October 21, 2018 SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNLAKE PLACID „ Keep America Beautiful, the nations iconic community improvement nonpro“t organization, announced the organization is providing the Highway Park Neighborhood Council/Keep Highway Park Beautiful with a $10,000 grant as part of the 2018 Keep America Beautiful/Lowes Community Partners Grant Program. The 2018 Keep America Beautiful/Lowes Community Partners Grant Program engages local volunteers, working alongside Lowes Heroes volunteers, to take action on projects that focus on critical, local needs. Keep Highway Park Beautifuls grant received in mid-September is helping to pay to install the electrical, purchase two additional ”agpoles, build a 30-inch wide wall for signage, purchase military plaques representing the “ve branches of the armed forces US Army, Navy, Marine Corp, National Guard and Air Force, pay for professional contractors required to install the poles and plaques and build the wall. This $10,000 will go a long way toward helping to “nish this wonderful memorial that is dedicated to ALL service members, regardless of race, ethnicity, economic standing, locality or background. The monument celebrates all veterans. The agency is continuing to raise funds for the $7,500 still needed to add proper lettering, pavers, and benches to complete the project,Ž said Dennis Crenshaw, senior project lead. In addition to Keep Highway Park Beautifuls grant initiative, Lowes is supporting more than 40 other Keep America Beautiful grant-funded community service projects in 2018 as well as Keep America Beautifuls Great American Cleanup. Since the partnership began in 2011, Lowes has contributed nearly $8 million, with more than 2,100 Lowes Heroes volunteers helping Keep America Beautiful improve local communities. For more information, to Highway Park receives $10,000 grant from LowesSPECIAL TO THE HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNORLANDO „ Nine Allstate agency owners from the Orlando area, including one in Sebring, recently came together to secure an $8,000 Allstate Foundation Helping Hands Grant to bene“t the Central Florida American Red Cross chapter. The grant will support The American Red Cross mission to respond to disaster in a moments notice by providing relief to emergency responders as well as “nancial assistance to those affected by the disaster. By volunteering their time distributing free Allstate Foundation disaster preparedness kits to community members, the agency owners earned $1,000 grants each for the American Red Cross. The Allstate Foundation kits included a “rst aid kit, an emergency blanket, a ”ashlight, among other essential items and local resources from the American Red Cross to help area residents prepare. The Central Florida American Red Cross will use the $8,000 grant to further its disaster relief work throughout the state. Disasters affect nearly one million people each year, yet 85 percent of Americans are unprepared for one. Our Allstate volunteers see “rsthand the opportunities and challenges facing the communities they serve,Ž said Polette Hernandez-Myers, Allstate agent. Following the devastating aftermath of hurricanes in 2017, we know the importance of stepping up to help Orlando community members prepare for any potential disaster.Ž The Orlando American Red Cross is one of thousands of organizations this year to receive Allstate Foundation Helping Hands Grants secured by agency owners, personal “nancial representatives and licensed sales professionals on behalf of the nonpro“ts where they volunteer. The grants support organizations addressing domestic violence, youth empowerment, disaster preparedness, hunger and other causes. The Helping Hands Grants are one example of The Allstate Foundations legacy of service and giving: Since The Allstate Foundation was founded in 1952, it has contributed over $449 million to support community nonpro“ts. In 2017, The Allstate Foundation contributed more than $33 million to support local Allstate agency owners earn $8,000 grant for the American Red Cross By JOSH BOAKAP ECONOMICS WRITERWASHINGTON „ U.S. home construction fell 5.3 percent in September, a sign that recent hurricanes and rising mortgage rates may be weighing on the market. The Commerce Department said Wednesday that housing starts slipped last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.2 million, down from 1.27 million in August. So far this year, starts have increased 6.4 percent. But the pace of homebuilding has downshifted since May September ground breakings were also likely hurt by Hurricane Florence striking North Carolina „ and ground breakings could possibly be depressed in October after Hurricane Michael hit the Florida panhandle. Starts are stagnating as the housing market slows, though Septembers numbers were suppressed by the hurricane affecting the Carolinas,Ž said Tendayi Kap“dze, chief economist at Lending Tree, an online loan broker. Homebuyers are facing new cost pressures that could be dampening demand. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac says that the average 30-year “xed-rate mortgage jumped to 4.9 percent last week, the highest level since 2011. The combination of higher borrowing costs and rising home values has made home ownership less affordable. It may be tempting to draw national conclusions from these storm-related dips and rallies, but the regional blips cant obscure the year-long malaise in the national single-family home construction market: Starts have been hit or miss, sales ”at and permits trending downward for months,Ž said Aaron Terrazas, a senior economist at the real estate “rm Zillow. After the Commerce Department released the report, shares in home builders and building materials retailers dropped in Wednesday morning trading. Shares for the building companies Lennar, PulteGroup and D.R. Horton were each down by more than 2 percent, while shares in Home Depot and Lowes slumped more than 3 percent. Builders appear to be adapting to the affordability challenges. Starts for multi-family buildings such as apartments have increased at a faster clip than single-family houses year to date. Still, much of Septembers decline came from a decline in ground breakings for multi-family buildings. Housing starts fell last month in the South and Midwest, but they increased in the Northeast and West. The construction data can be volatile, so the regional levels of homebuilding can change sharply on a monthly basis.

On Wednesday, Oct. 17, the Commerce Department reports on U.S. home construction in September. By MIKE SCHNEIDERTHE ASSOCIATED PRESSORLANDO „ Heather and Clark Ensminger breathed sighs of relief when their Los Angelesbound plane took off from Florida on time: Their biggest hurdle was now eliminated for achieving their goal of visiting six Disney parks on two coasts in one day. They succeeded Wednesday, visiting four Disney parks in the Orlando area and two in Anaheim, California, with a 2,500-mile cross-country ”ight and two time zones in between, all within 20 hours. It was incredible, unbelievable, surreal,Ž Heather Ensminger, 30, said in a phone interview early Thursday as the Kingsport, Tennessee, couple prepared to return to the California Disney parks for a second day. Adding to the surreal feeling, they said, was the media interest in their Disney pilgrimage after an Associated Press story about their plans was published. As they traveled from park to park, they were bombarded with calls and texts from radio stations, TV outlets and newspapers, wanting to know where they were on the journey. A camera crew from Disney Worlds publicity of“ce tracked them down for an interview, and they were stopped by Disney guests who recognized them from media reports. They also updated friends and fans of the Disney parks throughout the day, with posts on a Facebook page for Heather Hi Mickey, Bye Mickey6 Disney parks on 2 coasts in 1 day PHOTO VIA DISNEYA Tennessee couple recently achieved their goal of visiting six Disney parks on two coasts in one day.

D2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 21, 2018 By MARLEY JAYAP MARKETS WRITERNEW YORK „ Strong earnings are sending U.S. stocks higher Friday at the end of a choppy week of trading. Consumer products maker Procter & Gamble is surging after reporting strong sales of beauty products in its latest quarter, while credit card company American Express and payment processor PayPal also jumped. Technology and internet companies are on the rebound after some recent losses. While stocks are on track to “nish the week higher, most of the markets recent gains have been swiftly followed by losses. The S&P 500 hasnt risen by two days in a row since Sept. 20, the last day of a three-day string of gains. That was also the day of the benchmark indexs most recent record high. Its down 4.6 percent since then. KEEPING SCORE: The S&P 500 index gained 20 points, or 0.7 percent, to 2,788 after it fell 1.4 percent on Thursday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 162 points, or 0.7 percent, to 25,552. The Nasdaq composite climbed 77 points, or 1 percent, to 7,562. The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks edged up 5 points, or 0.3 percent, to 1,566. The S&P 500 has fallen for three weeks in a row, but is on track to rise 0.8 percent this week. LOOKING GOOD: The worlds largest consumer products maker is on track for its biggest gain in a decade. Procter & Gamble said sales of fabric and home care products edged higher in its latest quarter while beauty products revenue jumped 20 percent. The maker of Tide detergent, Pampers diapers and Gillette razors posted a bigger pro“t than analysts expected and its stock added 7.5 percent to $86.32. PayPal surpassed expectations in the third quarter and also announced a partnership with American Express. PayPal surged 11 percent to $86.02. American Express said spending on its credit cards increased and its results were better than analysts expected. American Express gained 4.1 percent to $107.05. Ebay, PayPals former corporate parent, slid 6.9 percent to $29.37. MARKET LEADERS: Amazon rose 1.8 percent to $1,802.32 while Microsoft jumped 1.6 percent to $110.28 and Apple added 1.4 percent to $219.03. The stocks have soared in recent years, which helped make them the three most valuable U.S. companies, but theyve struggled lately as investors worry about economic growth in the U.S. and the possibility that trade tensions and rising interest rates will stem that growth. BONDS: Bond prices slipped. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose to 3.20 percent from 3.17 percent. ASIA: China said economic growth sank to a post-“nancial crisis low of 6.5 percent in the third quarter. Chinese “nance of“cials launched a media blitz to shore up con“dence in the countrys sagging stock market. Chinas economy has gradually slowed for years, even before a trade dispute between Beijing and U.S. President Donald Trump led to higher tariffs. The Chinese government tightened controls on lending last year to rein in a debt boom, but that, too, has affected the economy. Hong Kongs Hang Seng rose 0.4 percent Seouls Kospi added 0.4 percent. Tokyos Nikkei 225 shed 0.6 percent. EUROPE: Germanys DAX lost 0.2 percent and Frances CAC 40 sank 0.6 percent. Londons FTSE 100 gained 0.3 percent and the FTSE MIB continued to slip tensions between European Union of“cials and Italys new government affected Italian stocks. Government bond prices slipped slightly and yields rose. ENERGY: Benchmark U.S. crude rose 1.3 percent to $69.51 per barrel in New York 5. Brent crude, used to price international oils, gained 1.6 percent to $80.62 a barrel in London. CURRENCY: The dollar rose to 112.56 yen from 112.20 yen. The euro rose to $1.1487 from $1.1465.US stocks jump following strong company earnings THE ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this Oct. 11 “le photo specialist James Denaro works at his post on the ”oor of the New York Stock Exchange.

PAGE 43 October 21, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | D5Job growth is found to be no cure for a communitys povertyBALTIMORE „ A healthy dose of job growth has long been seen as a likely cure for poverty. But new research suggests that poor Americans are frequently left behind even when their cities or communities bene“t from hiring booms. That is among the “ndings of a study led by Raj Chetty, a Harvard economist whose newly launched Opportunity Atlas found no association between job growth and economic mobility for poor residents of the affected areas.Western government officials cancel trip to Saudi eventPARIS „ Senior government of“cials from the U.S., France, Britain and the Netherlands joined a growing list of people cancelling out of an investment conference in Saudi Arabia. Their moves come amid questions over the kingdoms involvement in the disappearance of dissident writer Jamal Khashoggi. Many business executives and “nancial leaders, include IMF chief Christine Lagarde, have already canceled as well.Stocks sink on weak industrial earnings; tech skid resumesNEW YORK „ U.S. stocks slumped again Thursday as investors continued to sell shares of technology and internet companies, industrials, and companies that rely on consumer spending. Several industrial companies tumbled after releasing weak quarterly reports, and European stocks also fell as European Union leaders criticized Italys spending plans.Chinas yuan sinks further after US currency reportBEIJING „ Chinas politically sensitive yuan has sunk to a 22-month low against the dollar after the U.S. Treasury chose not to label Beijing a currency manipulator amid a mounting tariff battle. The yuan dipped to 6.9411 per dollar, the closest it has come to breaking the symbolic level of seven to the greenback since December 2016. That helps exporters cope with U.S. tariffs of up to 25 percent imposed in a “ght over Beijings technology policy. But it raises the risk of in”aming American complaints.CFPB investigates controversial writings of Trump appointeeNEW YORK „ The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is investigating the writings and comments of Eric Blankenstein, a Republican appointee overseeing the agencys anti-discrimination efforts, which he alleged that most hate crimes were fake and said using racial epithets did not mean a person was racist. Blankensteins is in charge of all investigations into discrimination by banks and other “nancial companies. He is also one of the highest paid government employees, making more than $250,000 a year.US stocks typically ride midterm elections to solid gainsNEW YORK „ Regardless of how midterm elections turn out, Wall Street usually ends up a big winner. The S&P 500 index has climbed in the 12 months after each of the midterm elections going back to 1946. Even so, the outcome of the Nov. 6 elections may have policy implications that could affect the market. Thats if anything ends up getting done. Should the Democrats wrest control of either the House of Representatives or the Senate, Washington could be facing two years of gridlock, analysts say.China regrets US leaving postal union amid trade disputeBEIJING „ China says it regrets the U.S. decision to leave the United Nations treaty that regulates international postage, amid a worsening trade dispute between the worlds top two economies. Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said Thursday the move should not be linked to China, despite arguments that the arrangement bene“ts manufacturers from China and other countries by making it cheaper to ship packages from Beijing to New York than from San Francisco to the U.S. East coast.European and Asian leaders seek to boost trade, securityBRUSSELS „ Europe and Asia should use their combined economic clout to tackle global challenges such as trade tensions that put millions of jobs at riskŽ and the threat of climate change, a top European of“cial said Thursday. European Council President Donald Tusk spoke in Brussels as he opened the AsiaEurope summit, which brought together 30 European leaders with their counterparts from 21 Asian nations.American Express profits jump 22 percent, beating forecastsNEW YORK „ American Express said its third quarter pro“ts jumped by 22 percent from a year earlier, as the credit card giant bene“ted from a lower tax rate and increased spending on the companys credit cards. American Express card users spent $294.7 billion on their cards globally last quarter, an 8 percent jump from a year earlier.

PAGE 45 October 21, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | D7Ensmingers travel-agent business. The trip was planned for their 10th wedding anniversary, but it also marked a sadder occasion: the “rst anniversary since Heather Ensmingers father had died. Last year, a few days before the Ensmingers planned to visit Walt Disney World in Florida for a vacation with her parents, Heathers father had a fatal heart attack. A couple months ago, I was having a hard time with the anniversary of my dads death and my husband began planning the trip without letting me know,Ž Heather Ensminger said. She ultimately was tipped off by her credit card company after Clark used points to pay for part of the trip. The Ensmingers love all things Disney, and even though they live in Tennessee, they are annual passholders to Disney World. At one time, they were visiting the theme park resort six times in a year. After an evening ”ight to Orlando, the couple arrived at Disneys Hollywood Studios on Wednesday at 6:15 a.m., Eastern Daylight Time, and were the “rst people let into the park when it opened for breakfast at 7 a.m. About two hours later, they went to Epcot, and by 10:30 a.m. they were at the Magic Kingdom where they drank apple cider at Gastons Tavern. Following lunch at Animal Kingdom, they made it to Orlando International Airport by midafternoon. The ”ight was the worst part. To save money, they both sat in middle seats, “ve rows apart. Clark, whos about the size of an NBA player, endured a tight squeeze as his knees hit the seat in front. The plane touched down at Los Angeles International Airport about 6:45 p.m., Paci“c Daylight Time, and, after navigating rush hour traf“c, they were at Disney California Adventure Park more than an hour later. Before leaving Disneyland at 11:30 p.m., Paci“c Daylight Time, they sat down on a bench on Main Street and just soaked it all in. We took “ve minutes to just look at each other and say, Wow we did it! What a great day,Ž Heather Ensminger said.DISNEYFROM PAGE 1Dcommunities.

Loving where you live extends beyond walls and fences, and we applaud Keep America Beautifuls vision.ŽLOWESFROM PAGE 1D Most people would be better off not having mortgages in retirement. Relatively few will get any tax bene“t from this debt, and the payments can get more dif“cult to manage on “xed incomes. But retiring a mortgage before you retire isnt always possible. Financial planners recommend creating a Plan B to ensure you dont wind up house rich and cash poor.Mortgage-free retirement is usually bestMortgage interest is technically tax deductible, but taxpayers must itemize to get the break „ and fewer will, now that Congress has nearly doubled the standard deduction. Congress Joint Committee on Taxation estimates 13.8 million households will bene“t from the mortgage interest deduction this year, compared to more than 32 million last year. Even before tax reform, people approaching retirement often got less bene“t from their mortgages over time as payments switched from being mostly interest to being mostly principal. To cover mortgage payments, retirees frequently have to withdraw more from their retirement funds than they would if the mortgage were paid off. Those withdrawals typically trigger more taxes, while reducing the pool of money that retirees have to live on. Thats why many “nancial planners recommend their clients pay down mortgages while still working so that theyre debt-free when they retire. Increasingly, though, people retire owing money on their homes. Thirty-“ve percent of households headed by people ages 65 to 74 have a mortgage, according to the Federal Reserves Survey of Consumer Finances. So do 23 percent of those 75 and older. In 1989, the proportions were 21 percent and 6 percent, respectively. But rushing to pay off those mortgages may not be a good idea, either.Dont make yourself poorerSome people have enough money in savings, investments or retirement funds to pay off their loans. But many would have to take a sizeable chunk of those assets, which could leave them short of cash for emergencies or future living expenses. While there are certainly psychological bene“ts related to being mortgage-free, “nancially, it is one of the last places I would direct a client to pay off early,Ž says certi“ed “nancial planner Michael Ciccone of Summit, New Jersey. Such big withdrawals also can shove people into much higher tax brackets and trigger whopping tax bills. When a client is wealthy enough to pay off a mortgage and wants to do so, CFP Chris Chen of Waltham, Massachusetts, still recommends spreading the payments over time to keep the taxes down. Often, though, people in the best position to pay off mortgages may decide not to do so because they can get a better return on their money elsewhere, planners say. Also, theyre often the ones af”uent enough to have big mortgages that still qualify for tax deductions. Mortgages many times have cheap interest rates that are deductible and thus may not be worth paying off if your portfolio after taxes can outpace it,Ž says CFP Scott A. Bishop of Houston.Minimize the mortgageFor many in retirement, paying off the house simply isnt possible. The best case wishful thinking scenario is that theyll have a cash windfall via an inheritance or the like that can be used to pay off the debt,Ž says CFP Rebecca L. Kennedy of Denver. In pricey Los Angeles, CFP David Rae suggests mortgage-burdened clients re“nance before they retire to lower their payments. (Re“nancing is generally easier before retirement than after.) Re“nancing can spread your remaining mortgage balance out over 30 years, greatly reducing the portion of your budget it eats up,Ž says Rae, whose of“ce is in West Hollywood. Those who have substantial equity built up in their homes could consider a reverse mortgage, planners say. These loans can be used to pay off the existing mortgage, but no payments are required and the reverse mortgage doesnt have to be paid off until the owner sells, moves out or dies. Another solution: downsize to eliminate or at least reduce mortgage debt. Should you pay off mortgage before you retire?NERD WALLET Liz Weston adno=3619532-1 NEW CONSTRUCTION NEW CONSTRUCTIO N Absolutely Sunning 3BR/2BA/2Car Gar, pool home with is own dock.

D8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 21, 2018 By CHRISTOPHER RUGABERAP ECONOMICS WRITERWASHINGTON „ U.S. home sales fell for the sixth straight month in September, a sign that housing has increasingly become a weak spot for the economy. The National Association of Realtors said Friday that sales declined 3.4 percent last month, the biggest drop in 2 years, to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.15 million. Thats the lowest sales pace since November 2015. Hurricane Florence dragged sales in North Carolina, but even excluding the storms effects, sales would have fallen more than 2 percent, the NAR said. After reaching the highest level in a decade last year, sales of existing homes have declined steadily in 2018 amid rapid price increases, higher mortgage rates and a tight supply of available houses. Housing will likely weaken further in the coming months, weighing on economic growth. Septembers weakness came before mortgage rates jumped further this month to their highest levels in seven years. Sales fell 4.1 percent in September from a year ago. Without a doubt there is a clear shift in the market,Ž said Lawrence Yun, chief economist at the National Association of Realtors. One sign of the shift is that demand for existing homes is slowing. Home prices are rising at a slower rate and the supply of available houses, while low, is increasing. Buyer traf“ c has also declined, Yun said. And with rents also stabilizing in many cities, many would-be buyers may not feel as much pressure to buy a new home. Renting itself may be seen as a better bargain as rising mortgage interest rates, still-rising home prices and sluggish wage growth dent the affordability advantage of a typical mortgage,Ž said Aaron Terrazas, senior economist at real estate data provider Zillow. Although housing is unlikely to add to growth this year, analysts are still mostly optimistic about the broader economy. Housing is no longer a tail wind for the economy, but the headwinds are blowing very gently,Ž said Michelle Meyer, an economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, before the report was released. Sales have fallen by the most in the West, where most of the nations hottest real estate markets are located and where prices have soared for several years. Sales tumbled 12.2 percent in that region in the past year, compared with just 5.6 percent in the Northeast and 1.5 percent in the Midwest. They dropped just 0.5 percent in the South from a year earlier, despite a sharp decline in September due to Hurricane Florence. The highest-priced homes are also reporting slower sales, a shift from earlier this year, when sales slowdowns were concentrated in mid-priced and cheaper homes. Homes priced at $1 million and higher saw sales drop 2 percent from a year ago. Higher borrowing costs are making housing less affordable. The average rate on a 30-year “ xed mortgage slipped this week but remained near a seven-year high of 4.85 percent. A year ago, it stood at 3.88 percent. There are also signs that home owners are increasingly unwilling to sell as mortgage rates rise. Thats because many have rates below 4 percent, so selling a home and buying a new one would require them to accept a higher rate. The Realtors surveyed consumers and found that 16 percent are unwilling to give up their mortgage rate and buy a new home. Thats up from a typical level of 10 percent.US home sales fell in SeptemberSlowest pace in 3 years THE ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this Aug. 30 “ le photo a sale signs stand outside a home on the market in Denver.
