The board unanimously passed a resolution to approve an agreement with Polston Engineering for architectural services. Polston Engineering obtained a proposal from local architect Michael GrifÂ“th for a not-to-exceed price of $18,590 for the lanai remodel. The board of supervisors is considering enclosing the porch areas for more air conditioned dining space. Tanya Cannady, general manager for Sun Ân Lake, told the board, ÂMr. GrifÂ“th will be able to start the project next week.ÂŽ GrifÂ“th will be meeting with the board and district staff to discuss details regarding the project on Monday, Oct. 29. Supervisor Dan Stegall suggested that the board consider a type of removable divider that would allow the lanai area to be partitioned off for meetings and opened up as needed. Stegall felt that this type of Â”exibility might attract more business for the restaurant. The partitioning will be discussed again at the meeting on Oct. 29. Supervisor Ray Brooks expressed his frustration with the interior of the dining area of the Island View Restaurant. He agreed with updating the lanai furniture, but he felt that the rest of the interior needed to renovated as well. Resident Bill Norcross agreed with Brooks that the dining room needed upgrades. Supervisor Joe Branson requested that Cliff Easum, golf club general manager, provide a monthly report about golf memberships so that the board could see trends in the golÂ“ng. The report would also enable the board to see the impact of changes in golf fees on actual golf play. Easum told the board, ÂOctober and November are trending strong at the club.

On Wednesday, Sebring Police Department arrested Elie Francois Jean Aimee, 57, of Sebring. Jean Aimee was charged with aggravated battery on a person with a deadly weapon. A Sebring police officer arrived at the residence at approximately 6:35 p.m. on Wednesday. The officer spoke to the victim who stated that she had lived in the residence for a month-and-a-half. According to the victimÂs statement, the relationship was only friendly, not romantic, but she decided to move out of the residence because ÂJean Aimee had gotten Âgrabby.ÂÂŽ She had arrived at the house earlier that day to remove her belongings, the victim said. When she returned to the house, the victim and Jean Aimee began a verbal confrontation that turned physical, the report states. The victim said Jean Aimee opened the front door of the residence and was holding the machete he usually keeps in his bedroom. He then grabbed the victim by her left arm and her hair and tried to pull her into the residence, the report states. The victim reported that Jean Aimee swung the machete at her and she believes that the handle hit the ring finger on her left hand. The officer noted the tip of her ring finger on her left hand was red and swollen. The physical altercation continued, and the suspect allegedly pushed the victim up against the inside of the front door while it was open, which caused the victim to fall to the ground and break the key off the upper deadbolt lock. The officer did note that the key was broken off of the front door. The victim said that after the key was broken, the key chain fell to the ground, and she picked it up in case Jean Aimee pulled her inside and she had to get out. Jean Aimee told the officer that the confrontation was only verbal, not physical, and the officer was unable to locate a machete. The officer reported seeing a surveillance system in Jean AimeeÂs bedroom, but the suspect stated it was not working and would not review it. The officer also talked with a neighbor who reported hearing and seeing a disturbance between the victim and the suspect from across the street. The neighbor told the officer that she heard a loud bang from across the street. A short time later the neighbor reported seeing both the victim and the suspect outside the residence pushing each other. The neighbor reported that it appeared that the victim was trying to get inside the residence and the suspect was trying to keep her outside the house. The witness allegedly stepped outside the residence and yelled, ÂstopÂŽ several times. The witness told the officer that the victim yelled, ÂHe has a knife.ÂŽ ÂLeave,ÂŽ the witness allegedly replied to the victim. Although the witness did not see a knife or machete at any point, she went back inside her residence and called for help, the report states.Sebring man accused of aggravated battery JEAN AIMEEBy KIM LEATHERMAN STAFF WRITERAVON PARK Â„ A two-vehicle accident resulted in a roll over on Friday afternoon. According to a Highlands County SheriffÂs Deputy on the scene, there were no injuries. The accident report was not ready as of time of press time on Friday. Janire Cerapio was the driver of a Nissan Rogue. She said she was headed east on W. Walnut Street and stopped her car at the corner of S. Florida Avenue and W. Walnut Street. Upon entering the intersection to cross the street and continue on W. Walnut, her car collided with a black Ford F-150 extended cab pick up truck. Witnesses say the Ford pickup truck was headed south on S. Florida Avenue. The Rogue had heavy front end damage and came to rest facing east southeast in the intersection. The Ford rolled over onto the driverÂs side and landed facing north on S. Florida Avenue. The Rogue had three children, ages 4, 5 and 7 who Cerapio just picked up from school. A deputy at the scene said there were two people in the Ford and a dog. No one had any injuries and no one was taken to the hospital. Highlands County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce was joined by City of Avon Park Fire Department and Highlands County EMS. Cerapio was visibly shaken but said she was uninjured. ÂIÂm just happy to be alive and have my babies safe,ÂŽ she said. ÂI just bought the car last month but it can be replaced. My babies canÂt.ÂŽ CerapioÂs sister, Maria Velez who was taking care of the kids and helping her sister, remarked that the residential roads in the neighborhood can be very dangerous. The driver of the Ford and its passengers were not readily identiÂ“ed. Fault will be assigned after the investigation is complete.Roll over wreck had no injuries KIM LEATHERMAN/STAFFA rollover accident in Avon Park Friday afternoon did not have any injuries.

If an overhead trafc-sig nal sensor being tested on the Parkway at Scenic Highway works well, its possible that having one at Memorial would shave time needed to x that intersection. Its academic right now, he said: He doesnt have a cost estimate yet, and once he does, the county and city of Sebring who share jurisdiction of that site would have to ask for bids from a contractor. The county does not have its own milling machine, Howerton said, but milling the asphalt would be part of the work, so a contractor needs to be able to do that. Likewise, Howerton said hed like to see one contractor do all the work needed at Parkway and Memorial, to further save time and save the inherent difculty of coordinating more than one company at the same time. Its a busy intersection, providing an interchange for trafc heading to and from U.S. 27, downtown Sebring and even down town Avon Park, by way of Memorial. It also provides access to three shopping plazas, two of them through Memorial, just one block off the U.S. 27 and Park way/Schumacher Road intersection, which alone carries 50,000 car trips per day. Relief for those two intersections wont arrive until the end of 2019, when Sebring Parkway Phase III gets done. The 2023 prediction for trafc at Memorial and College Drives, with the addition of Parkway Phase III and a trafc roundabout, is 10,000 cars per day, Howerton said. Its only expected to go up to 15,000 per day by 2040, he said. A 2012 trafc study done for South Florida State College by Tindale-Oliver & Associates Inc. of Bar tow said, without Phase III, trafc in 2020 just two years from now could average between 8,000-9,000 trips per day on Memorial Drive and as high as 12,500 per day on State Road 17 between Avon Park and Sebring. With Phase III and a tra ditional T-road intersec tion on Memorial Drive, trafc counts on Memo rial Drive could drop to 5,500-6,500 trips per day south of College Drive, the study said. On S.R. 17, trip counts could drop to less than 9,000 trips per day, and Phase III would handle 7,700 inter-city trips. The roundabout was added to the plan by former county engineer Ramon Gavarrete to make for smoother trafc ow at the Memorial and Parkway/College Drive point. For now though, the Parkway at Memorial Drive could see a signif icant portion of those 10,000 trips from Memo rial, added to its Parkway through-trafc. Shutting down a lane at a time anywhere near that disrupts motorists, Howerton said. Shutting down the whole Park way/Memorial junction is not an option. Meanwhile, heavy truck tires and constant use has worn potholes and groves in the pavement. The intersection has needed work for while, but Howerton said one reason that work has been delayed, aside from budgets, is that reinstall ing trafc sensor loops takes a lot of work, once the pavement has cured, to go back in and re-cut the pavement to install the sensors. Cutting the pavement also lets water get under the road surface, he said. An overhead sensor might avoid that, he said. They are more expensive $13,000 each versus $10,000 to reinstall the loops but they keep working during and after the repaving work, and trafc would move through more smoothly both during and after construction. Howerton has already said that the overhead sensor at Scenic Highway took two months to get. Theyre on back order now, he said. Plus, that one is slated to go to the Parkways 90-degree turn once that spot becomes a threeway intersection. Parkway/Memorial needs improvement Overhead sensor might shave work time PHIL ATTINGER/STAFF The westbound view of Sebring Parkway at Memorial Drive shows several potholes leading up to the intersection. By KIM LEATHERMAN S TAFF W RITER LAKE PLACID Prin cesses and pirates, ghosts and ghouls will be roaming the streets of downtown soon. The fth anniversary of the Lake Placid Community Event will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 31. Interlake Boulevard and Main Avenue will be closed to motorists at 5 p.m. Be prepared to detour. Several traditions that have formed over the years will continue. Interlake Boulevard and Main Avenue will have individuals and business vendors handing out candy, coloring books and even play games for trick-or treaters at this not-so-scary event. Vehicles will line the thoroughfares for trunkor-treaters, where trunks get transformed into different themed Hal loween motifs. Some are a bit scary, while others are just silly. New this year is a haunted house host ed by Michael Rios of Renshinkan Karate, also known as the Heymans Martial Arts studio. Lake Placid Police Chief James Fansler said there will be signs to direct people to the new and otherworld ly house. Another highlight that is sure to be a favorite tradition is the outdoor movies at the Lake Placid Journal off of Main Ave. The owners of the com plex, Elizabeth and Ken LeBlanc, will be showing the kids movie Hotel Transylvania at 8 p.m. The Halloween event was the brainchild of Fansler after he saw the dangers of hundreds of kids walking down CR 621 in the dark, wear ing dark costumes with trafc nearby. If they choose not to attend the downtown event, I encourage parents to make sure their children wear highly visible, pos sibly reective clothing, Fansler said. Anything that will make them visible to trafc. Parents will want to check candy before allowing any to be consumed. Parents may also want to visit the Sheriffs website to check neighborhoods for any/all sexual offenders. Parents may want to make a plan for getting separated during trickor-treating. Have a meet ing place and time in the event a child or parent cannot nd the other. Fansler and his staff of ofcers will be patrolling the event and have safe ty plans in place. However, if they come to the downtown event, we vet our applicants and the route is blocked off and safe. If they attend the event down town, LPPD will have a booth set up in front of the PD as well as several ofcers out along the route. By MELISSA MAIN S TAFF W RITER LAKE PLACID A trafc stop at the inter section of Lake Mirror Drive and US 27 ended with deputies discov ering over 20 grams of cannabis on the pas senger. On Wednesday, High lands County Sheriffs Ofce arrested Thomas Nicholas Timm, 20, of Lake Placid. Timm was charged with posses sion of over 20 grams of marijuana and posses sion of drug equipment. A deputy saw a ma roon Nissan Maxima approach the intersec tion of Holmes Avenue and CR 29 and report edly fail to come to a complete stop. Due to trafc, the deputy was not able to conduct the stop until the driver turned onto Lake Mirror Drive from US 27. When explaining the reason for the trafc stop, the passenger became visibly nervous, with his arms and legs shaking, the deputy reported. The deputy requested that a K-9 complete a free air sniff. The deputy queried the driver and passen ger information using his mobile computer terminal and wrote a written warning for the driver, Morgan Keck, for failing to come to a complete stop at the sign. The deputy with the K-9 reported that he had received a posi tive result from his K-9 partner. Based on this result, the deputies conducted a search of the vehicle and found a hand-rolled cannabis cigarette on the front passenger oorboard directly where Timm was sitting. Deputies also found two clear bags of a green leafy substance that tested positive for cannabis, the report states. The total weight of the cannabis was reported to be 29.6 grams. Timm was placed under arrest and was transported to the jail. The driver was report edly taken by EMS for medical reasons, and the vehicle was re moved from the scene by a family member of the driver.

This person will serve the people of a speciÂ“c state district. He or she can offer amendments to our state constitution and will have to serve on committees. A state representative has an extremely busy schedule, carrying out a vast scope of work in order to best represent his or her constitutions. Their job as an elected ofÂ“cial may be seen as a full-time job on part-time hours as they may continue to work their ÂnormalÂŽ job as much as possible. The Florida state representative earns a modest salary to do the work. The elected ofÂ“cial is limited to four two-year terms in this capacity. Geographically, District 55 is one of the largest districts in the state of Florida. It encompasses Highlands, Glades and Okeechobee counties, as well as part of St. Lucie. This yearÂs election sees two qualiÂ“ed candidates going head to head to serve District 55. One is an experienced incumbent nearing the end of his third term; the other is an enthusiastic newcomer to the political role. Both candidates made health care, education and economic development among their top priorities. They both agree that it is important to have a network of people whom they can bounce ideas off of and rely on to learn more about issues that may not be in their main focus. According to votesmart.org, the incumbent last sponsored or co-sponsored a bill in March 2017. He didnÂt vote on Â“ve of the 18 bills introduced since his co-sponsored bill. When talking about the issues of concern, Audrey Asciutto talks about the need for more affordable housing in the district she hopes to serve. When talking about improving education in the state, she reminds us she has a vested interest. The single mother of three has a child in high school, one in middle school and one in elementary school. If elected, she pledges to continue to be a visible part of Highlands County. She will talk with her childrenÂs teachers and hear the concerns of other people as she shops in the local stores. She believes she knows how to communicate with her constituents in a way that they will understand her and she will understand them. The incumbent, Cary Pigman, has had six years in ofÂ“ce, during which time he has sponsored or co-sponsored six bills, according to votesmart.org. In March 2017, he co-sponsored a bill that authorized residents to challenge school textbooks. However, our education system is still a mess with Highlands CountyÂs district ranked 57th in the stateÂs 67 counties. Poverty is a concern for citizens of Highlands County. The countyÂs poverty rate Â„ 38.8 percent in Avon Park, 27.2 percent in Sebring and 54.7 percent in Lake Placid Â„ exceeds the national average of 14 percent, according to government data from 2015-2016 that was analyzed by Data USA. The county is one of the stateÂs worst recovered 12 counties from the recent depression. Six years is a long time to be in ofÂ“ce without seeing more improvement than we have. While itÂs hard to ignore experience and six years of dedication, we feel itÂs time for a change. Audrey AsciuttoÂs overall enthusiasm and fresh look at the districtÂs problems is why the Highlands News-Sun endorses her for State Representative for District 55.State Representative District 55One life?What is the value of one human life? Many countries are pondering that very thought after the horriÂ“c murder of Jamel Khashoggi by members of the Saudi Arabian government. It is now clear that someone from Saudi Arabia ordered that killing and now several countries are concerned about their bottom line, as they all have Â“nancial deals in the works with the Saudis. Spain has a $2 billion deal, Canada has a $13 billion contract and we know the United States has a $110 billion arms deal pending. All of these deals involve thousands of jobs and a big boost to the economies of these countries. The conÂ”ict now is between human rights and dignity and the Âbottom line,ÂŽ in the ledger. Russia has claimed that their dealings with the Saudis wonÂt be changed and why should they? Putin has been accused of several Russian defectors deaths, but he simply denies that and nothing happens. So one more death is not important. The Saudis, on the other hand, simply tell the rest of us that if you mess with us, we will either stop the oil or price it through the roof. The rest of the world has been a slave to Middle East oil for a hundred years and canÂt seem to get their act together. So now with this worldwide drama unfolding, what do we do? It is either human rights and the value of human life, or the pocket book. Thousands of people will be affected with the decisions of the higher ups. If all the world thinks about are Â“nancial deals with the Saudis, the world is in a world of hurt.Hal Graves SebringCivics ignoranceRecently I have read how disturbingly ignorant many younger people are about our nationÂs founding, its government and basic events in our history. This came as no surprise as IÂve witnessed it Â“rsthand. I once worked with a lady in her 40Âs who thought the nationÂs capital was in Washington State and was foggy on where that was except that it was Âsomewhere out west.Â During the last presidential campaign, a prominent media channel did interviews on public streets interviewing people with questions as to when election day was, who was in the running, etc. ÂI donÂt knowÂŽ was a common answer. Students and older adults were asked if they could identify photos of prominent political Â“gures. Answers ranged from, ÂIsnÂt she / he some actress?ÂŽ to ÂNo idea who that is.ÂŽ One question concerned the year our Constitution was signed. A college student replied, ÂWasnÂt that in the 1980Âs?ÂŽ The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, which sponsors a civics survey, determined the following: Seventy-two percent of respondents either incorrectly identiÂ“ed or were unsure of which states were part of the 13 original states; Only 24 percent could correctly identify one thing Benjamin Franklin was famous for, with 37 percent believing he invented the light bulb; Only 24 percent knew the correct answer as to why the colonists fought the British; Twelve percent incorrectly thought WWII General Dwight Eisenhower led troops in the Civil War; 6 percent thought he was a Vietnam War general; and While most knew the cause of the Cold War, 2 percent said climate change. ItÂs estimated that only 19 percent of those under 45 would pass a basic citizenship test. Equally alarming is the indifferent attitude of some toward voting. Excuses range from, ÂI donÂt have time.ÂŽ to ÂI donÂt know who to vote for.ÂŽ Well, I say make time and study the candidates and proposed measures. Your future as well as that of the local municipalities, your state and your nation depend upon it.Warren Pender SebringOUR VIEW I read the news today, oh boy. And by ÂreadÂŽ I mean skimmed. And by ÂnewsÂŽ I mean aggregates. And by ÂtodayÂŽ I mean round-the-clock. And by Âoh boyÂŽ I mean IÂm suffering from email newsletter overload. Pretty much every major news outlet has joined the booming newsletter business. The Washington Post proudly declares that it now publishes 65 Â„ yes, 65 Â„ different newsletters. In fact, the other day I read in a newsletter published by Politico that the Post is looking for a newsletter editor Âto support a wide portfolio of editorial products that have become an essential part of the PostÂs success in reaching and retaining readers.ÂŽ Indeed, most publishers use newsletters as loss leaders to reach and retain Â„ although a few of these missives thrive as proÂ“t making, standalone publications. ItÂs high tide for those who enjoy having news pinged at them relentlessly in numbered and bulleted form. The modern newsletter era got serious in 2007 when the veteran Washington newshound Mike Allen began emailing his ÂPolitico Playbook.ÂŽ Allen has a knack for ferreting out the most compelling nuggets in other peopleÂs stories and summarizing them, Walter Winchell-style. Two years ago he moved his newsletter to Axios, while Politico continued to produce ÂPlaybookÂŽ Â„ which has mushroomed to 10 different regional editions. The ability to simply click-to-receive scores of newsletters presents the same sort of problem for me as doughnuts do at an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet. I start most days with ÂMorning BrieÂ“ngÂŽ from The New York Times and ÂThe 10-PointÂŽ newsletter from the Wall Street Journal. I read Mike Allen plus several editions of ÂPlaybookÂŽ along with its sister, ÂMorning Media,ÂŽ and its politically-focused cousin, ÂMorning Score.ÂŽ I read the PostÂs ÂMorning 202,ÂŽ which might be the most wordy newsletter on the market. Then I skim newsletters from a dozen local and regional newspapers before turning my attention to ÂNFL Daily,ÂŽ ÂIP Law360ÂŽ and a passel of other soft-news newsletters. This continues through afternoon and evening updates, until the day winds down with The TimesÂ ÂEvening BrieÂ“ngÂŽ at dinner and CNNÂs ÂReliable SourcesÂŽ at bedtime. IÂm embarrassed to say this is by no means my complete list. So whatÂs happening here, to news organizations and consumers? For most publishers, the newsletter gambit is yet another attempt to recover from the ghastly miscalculation decades ago to ignore the InternetÂs proÂ“t potential. Publishers belatedly erected pay walls, but many readers had already slipped away. Done right, newsletters are useful marketing tools to entice readers to click their way back to a paying mode. Done wrong, they are just another example of squandering valuable content on an audience of freeloaders. As I write this, the Boston Globe has announced its ÂMetro HeadlinesÂŽ newsletter, declaring: ÂItÂs free, just like our other two dozen newsletters.ÂŽ The New York Times then unveiled its 56th newsletter: ÂFive Weeknight Dishes,ÂŽ described as Âweeknight recipes for busy people who still want something good to eat.ÂŽ Makes sense to me. IÂm a busy person because I canÂt stop clicking. I could use a daily newsletter aggregating the very best of the dayÂs newsletters. Peter Funt is a writer and speaker. His book, ÂCautiously Optimistic,ÂŽ is available at Amazon.com and CandidCamera.com.How many newsletters do you receive?COLUMNISTPeter Funt

Approximately 100 people had already signed up for the Trick or Trot run/walk. She also updated the board about the new program, Coffee and Conversations, that provides an opportunity for businesses and organizations to talk to residents. Tom Kosty addressed the board during public comment time and expressed his concern over change orders. He asked Cannady about her ability to authorize change orders. Cannady conÂ“rmed that she could approve a change order under $10,000. Kosty asked her how often she could authorize the change orders, but she told him that she would need to research the information and get back to him. Earlier in the meeting, Cannady had mentioned her ability to authorize a change order, but she also told the board that she would inform them about the decision and make sure they were aware of any changes that needed to take place. Kosty was also concerned that the district had been unable to Â“nd records from recent years, and he deÂ“ned that as anything within the last 10 years. Chrissy Hardman, records management liason, told Kosty that the district followed the minimum regulations of the State of Florida. Kosty responded, as you read through the law, it points out these are minimums. Hardman told Kosty that sometimes records were kept longer, but it was their policy to follow state guidelines. She also told Kosty that he could come examine the records in her ofÂ“ce to see the record keeping system for himself. Cannady clariÂ“ed by saying, ÂWe donÂt have a district policy.ÂŽ Sun Ân Lake simply follows the requirements set forth by the state. Kosty told the staff that he would like to see a policy on the destruction of public records. When he was reminded about his three-minute time limit, he told the board that imposing the time limit was a recent occurrence and he did not agree with the time limit. Kosty also told the board and staff to keep in mind that the public, or the people, are the ones paying the bills. Supervisor Ray Brooks encouraged the board members to consider sending out surveys to gather input from residents about adding recreational opportunities at Sun Ân Lake. We should ask people what they think about the proposed activities, he said. The next meeting for the board of supervisors will be Friday, Nov. 9 at 9 a.m.REMODELFROM PAGE 1AJPMorgan Chase & Co.

ÂThe program works,ÂŽ said Harris, ÂThe hardest part of the program is the waiting. You just have to be patient.ÂŽ His advice for veterans is to stay on the radar and apply for what programs you can. Along with Operation Homefront heÂs a big fan of Veterans Affairs as well. ÂYou gotta stay in the loop. Find all the programs.ÂŽ Harris is very appreciative of his case worker, Rachel Boyd for the opportunity to move into the house in Lake Placid. For two years he pays no rent, no mortgage, just a small amount each month that covers taxes and the homeÂs warranty. Then, after the two years of living in the house the deed is handed over and he owns it free and clear. The program began back in 2012 and since then over 600 families have applied and 504 have graduated from the program, meaning they have received their deed and own the property, mortgage-free.

A8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 28, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com 863-441-1317. Fred Wild Elementary third-grade language arts and social studies teacher Stephanie Davis has been taking her students each year to Ag-Venture since it started in 1999. ÂHaving worked as a teacher at Fred Wild Elementary since 1980, I have had the opportunity of watching students gain knowledge of Florida agriculture, speciÂ“cally that of Highlands County,ÂŽ she said. Much has changed in education since she graduated from the University of Florida in 1980, Davis noted. The students of today are more adept technologically than their parents were in the thirdgrade. At the same time, todayÂs students need more hands-on learning experiences. Many working families may not have the time to spend with their children in these types of activities. ÂI am now teaching students whose parents once attended AgVenture while attending Fred Wild Elementary,ÂŽ she said. These students are just as eager and excited as their parents were to learn about bees, strawberries, beef, grapes, ornamental horticulture, citrus, alligators, forestry, the water cycle, poultry, dairy, caladiums, citrus, and vegetables, to name a few, Davis said. Although, she is not a new visitor to Ag-Venture, Davis said, she enjoys the painstaking work that is put into Ag-Venture to provide her students with realistic exhibits and hands-on activities that teach the value and importance of agriculture. ÂEach year I witness the childrenÂs excitement of climbing on a farm tractor, pumping water from an old-fashioned well, feeling cottonseed hulls and various types of seeds that are used in feed for livestock,ÂŽ she said. ÂI have never seen so many children as eager to answer questions, so that they might receive a birdÂs feather, a tree ring, a chance to blend up fresh strawberries. These are just a few of the experiences that our students are a part of as volunteers make learning come to life.ÂŽ Prior to attending Ag-Venture, students have learned about both plants and animals in reading and science, Davis explained. They have also learned how to classify living things. A pretest is given to Â“nd out what they already know about Florida agriculture. The term ÂagricultureÂŽ is something that we have to explain to them, she said. The idea that most of the things we eat do not come originally from the grocery store is something they have not thought much about. The students are amazed at the many bi-products of beef such as marshmallows, lipstick and bone china, as they play Beef-o-Bingo. They also enjoy tasting many delicious treats like strawberry milkshakes, egg omelets, honey and gator tail. Students return at the end of a fun-Â“lled day with an Ag-Venture T-shirt, a colorful cowboy hat, a bag full of prizes, plants they have planted, terrariums, candles they have made from beeÂs wax, and much more. As they ride back to school on the school buses, the children talk excitedly and peek into their AgVenture bags, Davis said. Once in the classroom, students share their favorite station at Ag-Venture and take a post-test to demonstrate what they have learned. A writing activity also takes place, the following day, to allow students to express themselves through writing. ÂThe work and commitment of the approximately 150 volunteers of Ag-Venture has made a difference in so many childrenÂs lives. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the AgVenture Board for all that they have done to create this wonderful learning adventure,ÂŽ Davis said. ÂThanks to their hard work, I have now witnessed two generations who will always treasure their days at Ag-Venture.ÂŽ Jaci Stocking, who has been a third-grade teacher for 14 years at Woodlawn Elementary, tells her students they will be taking the annual third-grade Â“eld trip to Ag-Venture where they will learn about agriculture in Florida. ÂI tell them this will be one of the best Â“eld trips youÂll take as a elementary student,ÂŽ she said. ÂThe students have heard about this trip from siblings or older friends and start asking questions right away at the beginning of the year.ÂŽ In her years of observing students at AgVenture, what are some of the favorite things the students like about the it? They like making strawberry shakes and petting real live alligators, Stocking said. ÂThey get to start their own plants, which has coincided with what weÂve done in our science studies,ÂŽ she said. They also like being up close to real farm animals and love climbing on the farm machines (tractors) and all the goodies they get throughout the dayÂs events. They also really love their cowboy hats and wear them proudly, Stocking said. Beforehand, they are given a pre-test. ÂWe review that we need to listen to because each of the venue people will give them the answers,ÂŽ Stocking said. Afterwards they do take the post-test to see what theyÂve learned from their Â“eld trip. Any funny or unusual things you remember about Ag-Venture? ÂThe Â“rst crack of the whip at the end of the event is always fun to watch the expressions on the kidsÂ faces,ÂŽ Stocking said. ÂWe see excitement and engagement with the kids as theyÂre learning through the hands on activities. ÂWe appreciate the work the agriculture volunteers do for our students. I know this takes a lot of prep time and we want them to know that it is well worth it. Last year, even with Hurricane Irma, they still did not miss a beat with still putting on such a fun program for the students of Highlands County.ÂŽ For more information, visit the Highlands County Ag-Venture website: highlandscountyag-venture. com.IMPACTFROM PAGE 1A FILE PHOTOHighlands County Ag-Venture provides third-graders an opportunity to learn about agriculture, from knowledgeable volunteers, at 14 stations from alligators, animals and beef to citrus, dairy and vegetables.adno=3620104-1 www.edwardjones.comMember SIPC Call or visit your local Â“nancial advisor today.*Annual Percentage Yield (APY) effective 10/23/18.

By RUTH ANNE LAWSONSTAFF WRITERAVON PARK Â… The Avon Park Red Devils were on the wrong end of a 40-0 shutout against Lakeland Christian on Friday night at Joe Franza Stadium. The loss dropped Avon Park, which lost quarterback Tyrek Dunlap to injury, to 5-4 on the season. ÂWe go the crap kicked out of us,ÂŽ said Avon Park Coach Jerry Hudnell. ÂOur kids were not ready for the punch in the mouth that we got right off the bat. Lakeland Christian came out and scored on the first play of the game and we lost our quarterback in the second quarter. It took the wind out of our sails.ÂŽ The Vikings showed their strength early when quarterback Elijah Hunter passed to Trent Mason for a 75-yard touchdown on the first play of the game. The extra point gave the Vikings a 7-0 lead. Avon Park gained a lot of yards but failed to capitalize. The Red DevilÂs Earl Collins ran for 95 yards on the night. Lakeland Christian extended itÂs lead in the second quarter. Bo Copen ran the ball 22 yards for a touchdown. The Vikings kicked the extra point to go up 14-0 with 11:17 left in the second quarter. Lakeland Christian scored again as Reese Collins caught an 80yard touchdown pass.

The Red Devils were beaten by the Vikings on Friday night. The Freshwater Fishing Forecast for the last four days of October give anglers the development of a strong last quarter moon phase and an absolutely perfect Â“shing-weather forecast. Just as the lunar perigee event causes a ÂsuperÂ qualiÂ“cation when it occurs at the same time as the new and full phases, so too will it be with this weekÂs last quarter phase when it occurs on Wednesday along with the lunar perigee. All Â“shing factors considered, the next four days could not be any better for anglers to catch Â“sh. Every Â“shing factor aligns perfectly, which will result in Â“sh forming daily feeding migrations in larger numbers for longer duration primarily during the sunrise and sunset periods. Water temperatures are now where FloridaÂs freshwater Â“sh can feed-at-will. The ideal feeding temperature range occurs twice a year, in the late fall and early winter, and again in the spring and early summer seasons. From now until the Â“rst major winter cold front occurs, water temps will be in the seventy to eighty-two degree range. Fish are able to now digest food at normal rates because dissolved oxygen rates increase substantially in the cooler water. As a result all species feed freely without physical stress; feeding just about every other day. ÂThe Florida largemouth bass pack on most of their annual weight gain when water temperatures are 70-82 degrees on the waterÂs surface.ÂŽ Fall season mild cold fronts do not Âshut-downÂ feeding activity or even slow it down. In fact the opposite takes place. The fall season means a feeding frenzy will ensue until temperatures in the sixty-degree range occur. It starts with the trophy largemouth females (male largemouth bass do not grow larger than sixteen inches in length, no matter how long they live) which suffer the most in hot temps. TheyÂll quickly regain the weight they lost in the summer months and then pack weight on. When FloridaÂs bass go to school this time of year, they learn one lesson, and that is to stay alive while they hunt, all while being driven by intense hunger. So anglers need to understand that their bait-offering must appear ÂnaturalÂ in the seasonal mode of a Âfeeding frenzyÂ. Bait action and speed at the correct depth therefore, is essential in tricking ÂBig GirlsÂ into making a mistake. This is the one time of year when large monster bass actually chase their prey down instead of Âwaiting in ambushÂ within cover.

The Braves had beaten the Blue Streaks every year since the rivalry was rekindled in 2011. With the win, Sebring improved to 7-2 overall and 3-1 in Class 6A-District 8 play and on the brink of making the postseason. ÂBig win for the program,ÂŽ said Sebring Head Coach LaVaar Scott. ÂBig win for Sebring High School, we have only beaten them like one time in school history. We Â“nally win a big game when we needed one with our backs against the wall, we did it.ÂŽ Sebring barely eked out 200 yards of total offense against the over 300 totaled by Lake Gibson, though compiling a lot of yardage was not necessary when special teams blocked the Â“rst two punt attempts by the Braves, resulting in two Â“rst-quarter touchdowns. SebringÂs Shareal Taylor blocked both punts, the Â“rst giving the Blue Streaks the ball on the BraveÂs 26. Four plays later, on a fourth-and-6, DJ Williams connected with Norris Taylor for a 22-yard pass in the end zone for a touchdown that put Sebring up 7-0. Forcing Lake Gibson to punt on its next possession after a nine-yard sack by Jordan Rose, Shareal Taylor blocked his second punt with Sebring recovering on Lake GibsonÂs 4-yard line. Williams scored two plays later on a 6-yard scoring jaunt as Sebring held a 14-0 lead midway through the Â“rst quarter.Blue Streaks knock off BravesSebring beats Lake Gibson for big district win PHOTO BY JIM TAYLOR/CORRESPONDENTSebringÂs Kasey Hawthorne stops Lake GibsonÂs Jaylon Glover for no gain during Friday nightÂs Class 6A-District 8 game at Firem enÂs Field.

Avon ParkÂs starting quarterback Tyrek Dunlap ran for 26 yards before he suffered an injury in the second quarter. Lakeland Christian regained possession and swiftly made its way down the field to Avon ParkÂs 6-yard line. The Vikings handed the ball off to Copen who ran the ball in the final yards for a touchdown to go up 26-0. Lakeland Christian struck again as Mason scored on a 50-yard touchdown to make it 33-0 at the half. Avon ParkÂs Xavier Holdman stepped in as the quarterback for the Red Devils and rushed for 31 yards. ÂWe fought pretty hard but minor mistakes hurt us badly,ÂŽ said Xavier Holdman. ÂWe have to get better. I stepped up at quarterback tonight and it made me feel like I had to take charge, be the man of the team and put the team on my back. WeÂve had better days. I fought the best I could at quarterback. This is my senior year and it has been pretty good so far. I would like to make the playoffs. We are going to get back to practice and try to get healthy for next week.ÂŽ Lakeland ChristianÂs Hunter Laurell intercepted the ball on Avon ParkÂs 28-yard line and Ben Oxendine ran the ball in for another touchdown. The Vikings booted the point after to make it 40-0. ÂI did see a lot of positive tonight,ÂŽ said Hudnell. ÂKevin Young stepped up and played well and Xavier Holdman came in at quarterback for us and did a great job. We always seem to pick up a lot of yards but it is our Achilles Heel. Once we get some steam going we end up having a bad snap, a fumble or something that stops us. This group of seniors have been very successful over the last four years but I am sorry we didnÂt get a win in their last home game of the season.ÂŽ Coach Hudnell put all the seniors in the game to finish the final play of their last home game of their senior year. The Avon Park Red Devils will travel to Lake Placid for their final game of the season. The Red Devils and the Lake Placid Green Dragons are long time rivals.

B4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 28, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com a top water bait with several pauses added into the retrieve process. ItÂs very likely a ten-plus pound bass will rise to the surface to spectacularly consume it. SheÂs got to make-up, catchup, to what her body needs to be healthy after suffering in the heat, unable to eat, for the past three months. If at this point in my article youÂre not planning to Âsoon by on the waterÂ joining the hunt for trophy bassÂƒ..youÂre not an angler. To hook big bass youÂve got to Âbe hookedÂ yourself. Tis the season to beÂƒ.setting a heavy gage 5/0 hook. My secret for boating giant bass: First off, get it out of your head to Âturn her after you set the hookÂ. Large bass are incredibly strong and if not hooked perfectly in bone or cartilage will rip-free and calmly swim away, tired but relievedÂ„ the opposite of your state of mind. Instead of countering her attempt to escape with your sheer power--holding the rod high and pulling her to the surface with a stout rodÂ„try Âfree-spoolingÂ the reel and using your thumb pressure on the spool to control the amount of line you allow her to take as she Â”ees the scene. Allow her to run, albeit under your limiting control, until she begins to tire out, which is usually about Â“fteen to twenty seconds. I always love to feel how strong each giant bass isÂƒunder my thumb (where every big girl should be by the way). Once sheÂs tired, she doesnÂt have the strength to pull off the hook. You must visualize each bass as if they are barely hooked and any strong counter to her action will result in a lost Â“sh. Since IÂve employed this tactic IÂve increased my trophy catch rate from Â“fty percent to about ninety percent. Also stop Â“ghting the bass with your rod straight up. Instead keep the rod on the water surface. If she is ÂallowedÂ to swim downward to cover, while under your thumb, she wonÂt be tail-walking across the surface attempting to tear free, which a majority of the time occurs. The second secret to my Big-Bass Success is, a larger-then-needed trolling motor. One which can chop its way through any vegetation, pulling my boat into the Âthick of itÂ and to the side of a tired-out bass which cannot Â“ght any more due to exhaustion, which IÂve designed and controlled. I like to think of it as Âroping and ridingÂ a wildÂƒ.bass, like a cowboy does with a horse in the wild. Of the last forty bass over ten pounds that IÂve boated, seventy-Â“ve percent have been barely hooked. Exhausted and unable to Â“ght anymore, they roll over, unable to Â”ee the net. Best Fishing Days: Tuesday through Thursday during the sunrise and sunset periods. Major Fishing Period: Today the moon underfoot period occurs at 4:52 p.m. and the sunset at 6:45 p.m. and will create a feed intensity rating of 3-5 depending on the lake typeÂ„deeper lakes recover faster from summer heat than shallow lakes. However this transitional phase should be over by the end of this week. The feeding migration will be from 4-7:30 p.m. Daily this period moves later by an hour. Minor Fishing Period: There are two minor periods until Wednesday, one during the moonset which occurs today at 11:22 a.m. and the second during the moon overhead period, today at 4:52 a.m. Therefore the midday period will be better until the moon overhead period occurs during the sunrise period starting Wednesday morningÂ„7:18 a.m. and 7:36 a.m. respectively, achieving a 3-4 rating. Today solar noon occurs at 1:09 p.m. and the moonset at 11:22 a.m. which will create the same rating from 10:30 a.m. Â… 1:30 p.m. Prime Monthly Periods: November 4-9 new moon, 20-25 full moon, December 4-9 new moon, 19-24 full moon.

www.highlandsnewssun.com October 28, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B5By BRANDON C. WILLIAMSASSOCIATED PRESSWeek 8 doesnÂt offer too many ÂcanÂt missÂŽ fantasy starts, but astute owners who have worked the waiver wires or patiently waited for a slow starter to finally gain steam will be rewarded, as the slate provides a handful of under-the-radar performers who will deliver quality numbers. On the flip side, those players who struggled during the first seven weeks wonÂt see much of a respite. As the midway point of the season Â„ and the NFL trade deadline next week Â„ approaches, most of this seasonÂs disappointing fantasy players are likely to continue showing their true, frustrating colors. START: Jameis Winston, QB, Buccaneers: Yes, the turnovers (seven in three games) is cause for concern, but Winston has also thrown for 760 yards and four touchdowns in his first two starts and gets a Bengals defense that is 28th in fantasy points per game allowed to opposing quarterbacks. What puts Winston high atop the must-start mountain is a renewed effort to run, as he has rushed for 84 yards and a touchdown in the last two games. ItÂs hard to envision Winston, who has attempted 93 passes in his two starts, not finding the end zone multiple times in what should be a high-scoring affair. SIT: T.J. Yeldon, RB, Jaguars: His pass-catching skills have made him a darling in PPR leagues, but Yeldon has yet to eclipse 60 rushing yards in a single game, a feat that becomes even less likely with the addition of Carlos Hyde to the Jacksonville backfield. The trip to London becomes less fruitful for Yeldon as he contends with an Eagles defense that is second in fewest fantasy points per game allowed to opposing running backs and seventh overall against the rush. There will be some flex appeal to Yeldon in PPR formats, but the prospect of Hyde cutting into his touches diminishes his value in other types of leagues. START: Marlon Mack, RB, Colts: Mack has averaged nearly 7 yards per carry in his last two games and will face an Oakland defense that is 27th in yards per carry allowed (4.7) and 22nd overall. HeÂs shown potential as a pass catcher out of the backfield, and while rookie Nyheim Hines will get the bulk of snaps in passing situations, expect Mack to be targeted a few times. Mack is an RB2 with a chance to produce RB1 numbers. SIT: Nelson Agholor, WR, Eagles: Part of the reason why the champs have struggled offensively, Agholor has just one touchdown this season and has been held under 30 receiving yards four times, including last weekÂs feeble 20-yard effort in the loss to the Panthers. DonÂt expect Agholor to find his 2017 form in London against a Jaguars defense that leads the league with 195.4 passing yards per game. Although heÂs averaging nearly eight targets per game, Agholor has done little to justify Fantasy plays for week 8 Four teams on a bye weekFANTASY | 8B Located in Fairmount Cinema Square3750 U.S Highway 27 N.

B6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 28, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com ÂThe team has delivered incredible performance, and weÂve been fortunate to develop a number of new opportunities for Mustang Sampling through our involvement, so this is a program that we were eager to continue into the future. We are already looking forward to Daytona.ÂŽ ÂWe are thrilled to continue our program with Mustang Sampling to be the title sponsor of our No. 5 Mustang Sampling Racing Cadillac Prototype,ÂŽ said Action Express Racing team owner Bob Johnson. ÂWe are proud to build on this partnership and look forward to continuing to deliver for Mustang Sampling both on and off of the track.ÂŽ Mustang Sampling also launched an online merchandise store for race fans in 2018 at www.mustangsamplingracingstore. com. The site has a wide range of options for men, women, and children alike. Mustang Sampling anticipates growing the range of products ahead of the 2019 IMSA season. Continental Tire Challenge ItÂs been nearly two weeks since this yearÂs set of IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge champions were crowned following the Â“nale at Road Atlanta on October 12. But the feeling of accomplishment hasnÂt diminished at all with the passing of time for any of the championship teams. With a new race car and a new driver pairing, Team TGM came into the 2018 Grand Sport (GS) class determined. The team was still seeking its Â“rst win in the series and had come close in past races, yet this season seemed different. With sports car veterans Hugh Plumb and Owen Trinkler sharing the No. 46 Mercedes-AMG GT4, the team Â”ew quietly under the radar for the Â“rst half of the season until that elusive Â“rst win was Â“nally captured at Lime Rock Park in July. It was there that Team TGM then captured something else Â… everyoneÂs attention. The victory was the Â“rst for the MercedesAMG GT4 in North American competition and capped off a streak of consecutive top-10 Â“nishes for the team that started with the Â“rst race of the season. Trinkler and Plumb went on to become the only team in the GS Â“eld that Â“nished on the lead lap in all of the seasonÂs 10 races, scoring an average Â“nishing position within the top Â“ve after taking additional wins at VIRginia International Raceway in August and WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in September. The duo entered the Â“nal race of the season with a 31-point lead, only needing to meet drive-time requirements to clinch the title. For a team that entered the season winless so far in Continental Tire Challenge competition, the 2018 campaign turned into a dream come true. ÂTo say itÂs gratifying is really the biggest understatement in the world,ÂŽ said Team Owner Ted Giovanis. ÂItÂs really amazing what we accomplished this year. We set out a plan, we started executing that plan, we kept our heads down and of course the team did a great job, just like the other teams did. ÂWe just kept moving down the road and then all of a sudden, we were at Lime Rock and we had a win. So, we went back to the plan and kept going again. Here we are. And to some extent, weÂre here because of our own performance, but we placed ourselves in a position to take advantage of other peopleÂs misfortunes at some point in time. it just appeared to us and we got ourselves in a really good position just before the last race.ÂŽ TCR Class The Â“rst year for the TCR class in IMSA is ofÂ“cially in the books and if the classÂ Â“rst 10 races were any indication, its future is bright. This year, TCR provided the third-closest Â“nish in series history, multiple last-lap passes for the win, emotional Â“rst victories for a handful of teams and drivers, and a backand-forth, season-long championship battle that approached the season Â“nale with just Â“ve points separating the top two teams. Coming out on top, though, was the No. 77 Compass Racing Audi RS3 LMS of Britt Casey, Jr. and Tom Long, a duo that Â“rst connected at the end of 2013. A friend of CaseyÂs introduced the then 15-year-old to the sports car veteran. Long Â… who was the outgoing team manager for Freedom Autosport as he transitioned to co-driving the Mazda Prototype in the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Â… tested with Casey in early 2014 and put him in a Freedom race car in IMSA later that year. ÂHe literally gave me my Â“rst professional shot, which is really cool,ÂŽ said Casey. ÂHeÂs always been a background mentor for me. HeÂs deÂ“nitely like family, both of our families are really close now since that time. We met each other through racing and continued the relationship through that. Tom has really been probably the most key Â“gure in my racing career.ÂŽ The close relationship was surely to the co-driversÂ beneÂ“t as they worked Â”awlessly together throughout the season. Long and Casey Â“nished in the top Â“ve in every race, stood on top of the podium more times than any other team (four), completed all but two laps of competition and, for good measure, added three Motul Pole Awards. ÂTo put the stamp on it the Â“rst year in, itÂs deÂ“nitely history making,ÂŽ Casey said of earning the Â“rst TCR championship. ÂIt was hard earned, it was difÂ“cult regardless of our teammates being our biggest competitor. ÂI think everyone executed accordingly and as much to plan as we could have been. I think weÂre all really, really proud of that. The car literally had zero scratches on it the entire year and I think that played a huge part in our success. I think everyone just did their jobs and it was deÂ“nitely a hardearned effort.ÂŽ Last year, both Devin Jones and Nick Galante were racing Porsche Caymans for different teams in the Continental Tire Challenge. In January 2018, Jones and Galante were suddenly teammates, sharing a BMW for BimmerWorld Racing. It was a move that will go down in the record books, as Jones and Galante were awarded the Â“nal championship in the Street Tuner (ST) class and the Â“rst championship for longtime series competitor, BimmerWorld. For Jones, though, there wasnÂt much of an adjustment period of getting settled in with BimmerWorld and his new co-driver. ÂNick and I knew from the Â“rst laps we turned at the Roar in January that we had a car and team that was capable of contending for wins,ÂŽ said Jones. ÂThe funny thing about Nick and I is, we both have very different driving styles, but we learned a lot from each other over the course of the season. We were always able to lean on one another from track to track. The whole pairing was really special and I was just so happy to be a part of it.ÂŽMUSTANGFROM PAGE 1B adno=3623809-1 BRADENTON Cortez Plaza (941)752-3300SARASOTA SOUTHClark Road (941)921-2121SEBRING LAKESHORE MALL (between Belk and Sears) (863)382-7771SARASOTA NORTH University Pkwy (941)359-8400 DonÂt MISS the OPPORTUNITY TO TEST ALL-NEW TECHNOLOGY!Special Hearing Health Event This Week Only!

www.highlandsnewssun.com October 28, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B7Sebring special teams pinned Lake Gibson back on their own 12 on the ensuing kickoff, forcing them to punt again three plays. Sebring took advantage of a short Â“eld, getting the ball back on Lake Gibson 30-yard line. The Blue Streaks drove the ball down the Â“eld and eventually scored on the Â“rst play in the second quarter on a 7-yard run by Williams as Sebring took a 21-0 lead. Lake Gibson regrouped, slowing the Sebring offense as the Braves got theirs back on track. Lake Gibson quarterback Travis Williams brought his team back to within seven points, 21-14, as he threw two touchdowns passes to Malachi McNealy, the Â“rst for 69 yards and the second for 25 yards. With three and a half minutes left in the Â“rst half, Sebring put together their best drive of the night, going 74 yards in nine plays with Devion Littles capping off the drive with a 1-yard touchdown run to push the Blue Streaks lead back to 14, 28-14, going into the half. Sebring opened up the second half with a 64-yard drive, highlighted by a 26-yard run by Williams and a 23-yard run by EJ Lockett. Kasey Hawthorne Â“nished it off with a 6-yard touchdown run to give the Blue Streaks a 35-14 lead. Lake Gibson attempted to answer quickly on its next possession, Shareal Williams stopped that with an interception on a tipped pass. The Braves did score later, Â“nishing a 74-yard drive with a 3-yard touchdown run by Jaylon Glover to make the score 35-21 heading into the fourth quarter. The Sebring defense came up huge in the fourth, as Rose stopped Glover short on a fourthand-two, causing a turnover on downs at the Sebring 26. Lake Gibson again drove into Sebring territory on its next possession, again reaching the 26, this time they took a shot at the end zone, only to be thwarted by Shareal Taylor with his second interception at the goal line and bringing it back to SebringÂs 38. With two minutes left in the game, the Sebring defense put their Â“nal stamp on the game as Roger Yarde forced a fumble and Chase Doty returned it 50 yards to give the Blue Streaks a 42-21 lead. Lake Gibson ended the game with a meaningless touchdown as time ran out to make the Â“nal score 42-27. Lake GibsonÂs Glover rushed for 84 yards on 19 carries and a touchdown. Travis Williams completed 14 of 28 passes for 261 yards and two touchdowns and two interceptions. McNealy caught 6 of those passes for 167 yards and two touchdowns. SebringÂs DJ Williams rushed for 78 yards on 17 carries with two touchdowns, while going 4 for 10 for 64 yards and a touchdown in passing. The Sebring defense accounted for Â“ve sacks, two interceptions and a fumble recovery for a touchdown. ÂWe came out and played, we have been a second half team,ÂŽ said Scott. ÂTonight we came out and played in the Â“rst half. They kids worked hard, I thought they were going to hang their heads after the loss to Lake Wales, they came out practiced hard and played hard tonight.ÂŽ As for the playoff picture, Scott said he was not sure and lets the Athletic Director play with the numbers. ÂWe still have to go out and win next week,ÂŽ said Scott.STREAKSFROM PAGE 1B PHOTO BY JIM TAYLOR/CORRESPONDENTSebringÂs DJ Williams (3) picked up 78 yards rushing on 17 carries and two touchdowns in the Blue Streaks 42-27 win on Friday night.

B8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 28, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Carson Wentz throwing in his direction. START: Josh Gordon, WR, Patriots: The prospect of his first monster game in a New England uniform is rising. Gordon caught four passes for 100 yards in last weekÂs win over the Bears and he has seen his targets rise from six in his first two games to 16 over the past two outings. The Bills are fourth in receiving yards allowed, but they have given up 13 passing touchdowns, tying them for 20th overall. While Gordon has only one touchdown in New England, that is likely to increase on Monday night. SIT: Matthew Stafford, QB, Lions: DetroitÂs gunslinger has thrown at least two touchdowns in five straight games, a streak that will be tested by a Seattle pass defense that is tied for second with only eight scoring passes allowed. No longer the ÂLegion of Boom,ÂŽ the Seahawks still lead the league in fewest net passing yards allowed and are in the top 10 in interceptions. An improved ground game has led Stafford to throw a combined 48 passes in the last two games, and if the Lions are able to remain balanced offensively, then StaffordÂs prolific yardage totals will also take a sizable hit. START: Raheem Mostert, RB, 49ers: If Matt Breida (ankle, hamstring) canÂt go, then Mostert gets a great matchup against the Cardinals, who have the worst run defense in the league. Arizona also is dead last with 12 rushing touchdowns allowed, further bolstering MostertÂs value. He has averaged 7.6 yards per carry over the past two weeks and is a solid receiver out of the backfield; even if Breida happens to play, Mostert should still get enough touches to get RB2 status in PPR formats. SIT: Isaiah Crowell, RB, Jets: With Bilal Powell (neck) facing potential retirement, Crowell will get his share of the 13 touches per game that Powell totaled. However, Crowell must face a Bears defense that is third against the run and is the only team that has yet to allow a touchdown on the ground. Crowell has rushed for a combined 69 yards on 24 carries in the two games since he ran through the Broncos for 219 yards, making him a longshot of an RB2. He still wonÂt be heavily involved in the passing game, further dampening his value in PPR formats. START: Mitchell Trubisky, QB, Bears: HeÂs proven the six-TD outburst he had against the Buccaneers wasnÂt a fluke, as Trubisky has thrown for 649 yards and five touchdowns in his last two games. The Jets are 25th in receiving yards allowed and have given up 13 touchdown passes, and with coach Matt Nagy taking the gloves off Trubisky, this makes for a great opportunity to run with the budding fantasy standout. SIT: Baker Mayfield, QB, Browns: The Steelers are 29th in fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks, and while that makes starting Mayfield intriguing, heÂs best off on the fantasy bench. HeÂs averaged just 226.5 passing yards per game in the last two weeks and could remain near that total if the Browns make a commitment to getting running back Nick Chubb an extensive workload.FANTASYFROM PAGE 5B ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTOTampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston is a good fantasy play this week against the Cincinnati Bengals.

THE NEWS WIRESTATE Â€ NATIONAL Â€ WORLD Â€ BUSINESS Mexico torn between stopping, aiding migrant caravanSee Page 8 Sunday, October 28, 2018 By CATHERINE LUCEYASSOCIATED PRESSMURPHYSBORO, Ill. Â„ President Donald Trump mourned the dead and forcefully condemned anti-Semitism Saturday after a mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that left 11 dead. But faced with another national tragedy, he could not long turn his focus away from the midterm elections or himself. Nine days from elections that will determine the control of Congress, Trump stuck to his plans to appear at an agricultural convention and a political rally. Throughout the day, he expressed sorrow, called for justice and bemoaned hate, getting regular updates on the shooting. But he also campaigned for candidates, took shots at favorite Democratic targets House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Elizabeth Warren and made jokes about his hair. At a massive rally in southern Illinois for U.S. Rep. Mike Bost, Trump condemned the shooting as an Âevil anti-Semitic attack.ÂŽ But he said cancelling his appearance would make Âsick, demented people important.ÂŽ The slaughter at a baby-naming ceremony followed a tense week dominated by a mail bomb plot with apparent political motivations and served as another toxic reminder of a divided nation. It also again underscored TrumpÂs reluctance to step into the role of national uniÂ“er at tense moments as well as his singular focus heading into elections that could dramatically change his presidency. Trump sought to Trump calls Pittsburgh synagogue attack ÂevilÂ anti-Semitism AP PHOTOPresident Donald Trump speaks to an overow crowd at a rally at Southern Illinois Airport in Murphysboro, Ill., Saturday.NEW YORK (AP) Â„ Law-enforcement agencies around the U.S. are deploying extra ofÂ“cers at synagogues and Jewish centers in response to a shooting that claimed 11 lives at a Pittsburgh synagogue. Police in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and other cities said Saturday that while they knew of no credible threats against houses of worship in their communities, they were stepping up patrols out of an abundance of caution. Authorities say gunman Robert Bowers opened Â“re during a service at Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh Saturday morning, killing 11 and wounding six. In New York City, Chief of Department Terence Monahan said ofÂ“cers equipped with heavy weapons have been sent to houses of worship throughout the city. The Chicago Police Department said it was providing special attention to synagogues.Police boost patrols at synagogues after Pittsburgh shooting AP PHOTOLaw enforcement ocers check possible entrances to The Tree of Life synagogue where multiple people were killed and others injured in a deadly shooting, Saturday.TRUMP | 4By JOSH MAGNESSMCCLATCHY WASHINGTON BUREAU (TNS)WASHINGTON Â„ After police say a man stormed into a Pittsburgh synagogue and killed at least 11 people, a social media account with the suspected shooterÂs name began to circulate online. Police have identiÂ“ed the suspect in the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood as 46-year-old Robert Bowers. Six people Â„ including four police ofÂ“cers Â„ were also reported as injured in the shooting at the place of worship for Jews. As news broke of the shooting, some on social media noted that Bowers had an account on the social media site Gab. Gab describes itself as Âan ad-free social network for creators who believe in free speech, individual liberty, and the free Â”ow of information online. All are welcome.ÂŽ Andrew Torba, founder of Gab, said that he created the website because of Âthe entirely left-leaning Big Social monopoly,ÂŽ Newsweek reported. The site was founded in 2016. Vox reported that the platform has become a virtual gathering place for some members of the alt-right, a movement of white nationalist, anti-Semitic and white supremacist groups. The Gab logo resembles Pepe the frog, a meme that has been adopted by some members of the alt-right, as noted by VICE. But Utsav Sanduja, GabÂs Chief Operating OfÂ“cer, told VICE that it is simply looking to protect the free speech of its users. ÂWeÂre very worried about peopleÂs rights,ÂŽ Sanduja told VICE. ÂA lot of political speech is being labeled as hate speech and is simply being wiped off the map.ÂŽ An account with the same name as the suspected shooter contains many disparaging posts about people of Jewish faith, as seen in an archive of the account. The account shared a message that said ÂJews are waging a propaganda war against Western civilization.ÂŽ The account associated with Bowers also appears to indicate that he was about to attack the synagogue. The Â“nal message on the account Â„ sent out Saturday just a few hours before the shooting Â„ says ÂHIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society) likes to bring invaders in that kill our people. I canÂt sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, IÂm going in.ÂŽ Gab suspended the account Saturday afternoon, and then, in a post on Medium. com, the social media platform wrote that it Âunequivocally disavows and condemns all acts of terrorism and violenceÂŽ and is working with law enforcement. ÂShortly after the attack, Gab was alerted to a user proÂ“le of the Suspected synagogue shooterÂs anti-Semitic posts surface online By TERRY SPENCER and ELLIS RUAASSOCIATED PRESSFORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. Â„ Thirteen years ago, mail bomb suspect Cesar Sayoc traveled the country leading a mixedrace troupe of male exotic dancers Â„ he ran scams and had a temper, but a fellow dancer who is African-American said he never expressed racism or homophobia. Years later, working as a pizza driver, Sayoc would often express hatred for minorities, Jews and gays, his manager said. He drove a van plastered with stickers supporting President Donald Trump, criticizing media outlets and showing riÂ”e crosshairs over liberals like Hillary Clinton and Â“lmmaker Michael Moore. But she kept him around, even though she is a lesbian, because he was honest, dependable and never got into Â“ghts. Why Sayoc changed so radically over the years remains a mystery, but to those who know him, there seems little question that he did. ÂWe were friends, we were boys, we traveled in the same van, slept in the same room,ÂŽ said former dancer David Crosby, who is black. ÂWhen I think of the guy I knew and the guy I see now on MSNBC, CNN and at Trump rallies, I think, ÂDid he really slip?ÂÂŽ He thinks TrumpÂs sometimes bombastic criticism of liberals may have pushed Sayoc over the edge. ÂHe really wasnÂt a bad guy,ÂŽ a puzzled Crosby said. But former pizza restaurant manager Debra Gureghian said that while Sayoc originally came across as respectful, articulate and polite, within days a dark side emerged and he told her he was disgusted by her sexuality. ÂI was an abomination, I was GodÂs misÂ“t ... I was a mistake,ÂŽ Gureghian said of her former employee, who quit his job earlier Mail bomb suspectÂs personality changed radically AP PHOTODebra Gureghian, manager at New River Pizza, and former co-worker of Cesar Sayoc, poses for a portrait on Saturday, Oct. 27, in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Page 2 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018Dear Mr. Berko: When our father passed away about a year ago, he left my sister and me eight stocks. We have decided to keep the Â“ve utility stocks and continue reinvesting the dividends each quarter. Please give us advice on keeping or selling the other three Â„ Cincinnati Financial, Zogenix and Medtronic Â„ which we know nothing about. Â„ CC, Jonesboro, Ark. Dear CC: I canÂt advise you competently because I know nothing about your stock market experiences, risk tolerances, shortand long-term goals, capital and income needs, debts, etc. Cincinnati Financial (CINF-$74.10) markets property and casualty insurance, life and health insurance, and Â“nancial services through independent insurance agencies around the nation. I graduated from college the year that CINFÂs CEO, Steve Johnston, was born. CINF has a good portfolio of Â“nancial products and a stable balance sheet. Its long-term debt is 9 percent of capital. Management has excellent underwriting practices, and proÂ“t margins are improving nicely. Since 2000, premium income has tripled, and the dividend, now $2.12 and yielding 2.1 percent, has been increased each year and has tripled. And the share price has increased almost sixfold since the Great Recession low of $13. Meanwhile, healthy premium growth from its property/casualty lines and rising policy retention levels should boost 2019 revenues to $5.5 billion, up from $5.3 billion this year, and improve earnings to $3.47 a share, up from $3.20. And the dividend may be increased by 5 percent, to $2.24. CINF is a solidly managed insurance holding company, and the fact that millions of shares are owned by Vanguard, BlackRock, Bank of America, J.P. Morgan and the Royal Bank of Canada is proof of the pudding. But I donÂt care to own the shares of this large-cap company, primarily because CINF is priced ahead of itself, at 23 times earnings, and also because I doubt that the Bengals will ever win a Super Bowl. Zogenix (ZGNX-$41.21) is one of the innumerable biotechnology Â“rms that can trade like a bull in a china shop. ZGNX is engaged in the development and commercialization of therapeutic solutions for people living with serious and rare disorders of the central nervous system. One of its products, ZX008, is a low-dose fenÂ”uramine for treatment of Dravet syndrome and LennoxGastaut syndrome, a rare and severe form of epilepsy that commences in childhood. In the past three years, ZGNX has lost nearly $1.5 billion. However, 4 million shares are owned by Perceptive Advisors, a New York hedge fund that has made hundreds of millions of bucks in the past few years taking positions of biotech issues. And Scopia Capital Management, another New York hedge fund specializing in biotech issues, has a 3.4 million-share position. If you can handle well-above-average risk, ZGNX could give you well-above-average long-term gains. But its 52-week price range of $12 to $62 a share suggests that ZGNX could also give you well-above-average longterm losses. There are Â“ve brokerages covering ZGNX, and each has a ÂbuyÂŽ recommendation on the stock. And I think thereÂs a 71 percent chance that there will be 20 to 25 more points in the stock by late 2019. Founded in 1949 as a medical equipment repair shop, Medtronic (MDT-$96) is now the worldÂs largest manufacturer and distributor of implantable biomedical devices and sells its products in 160 countries via 372 locations.

Email Malcolm Berko at email@example.com.Three unknown stocks explained MalcolmBERKOC STATE NEWSBy TAMARA LUSHASSOCIATED PRESSPANAMA CITY, Fla. Â„ More than two weeks after the powerful eyewall of Hurricane Michael passed over Bay County, Mark Ward wonders when the power will work again. And the sewer. And the water. ÂWeÂve been living out of coolers. WeÂve been grilling out.ÂŽ He points to a red cooler and two grills in front of his mobile home. He has to shout to be heard over the buzz of a generator. Although electric, water and sewer service were restored to Panama City residents on Wednesday, those like Ward who live in the rural parts of Bay County still lack basic services. ÂItÂs a struggle. You feel frustrated because our local government seems to care more about the tourism industry than the hard-working people,ÂŽ says the 49-year-old. ÂYou go off some of these dirt roads that are still unpaved, these houses are crushed. These people have no resources.ÂŽ County spokeswoman Valerie Sale says she understands why people in rural areas feel left behind. ÂWhen you live that far away from a municipal area, thereÂs a feeling of isolation,ÂŽ she said. ÂThereÂs no question itÂs a challenge to reach those folks. Under normal circumstances it takes 45 minutes to an hour to get to some of those northern parts of the county.ÂŽ Bay County is known for its sugar-sand beaches. Panama City Beach, which made it through relatively unscathed from the storm, is a mecca for spring breakers each year. Mexico Beach, another stunning community on the Gulf of Mexico, was almost obliterated by the storm. Stark, stunning visuals of the destruction there have been a staple of posthurricane news coverage. But the rural folks in Bay County say they feel invisible. About 180,000 people live in the county, and according to the Census, 14 percent of them live in poverty. ÂWhereÂs the help?ÂŽ asks Ward. HeÂs one of the lucky ones in the Bayou George neighborhood. He has insurance. His mobile home was mostly spared. He has a generator, and he rigged a hand pump for the well. His next-door neighbors didnÂt fare as well: Michael stripped their mobile home to a wood skeleton. They clung to debris, but Â“nally ran for safety to WardÂs home during the eye of the storm with a cat and her newborn kittens. ÂIÂve got seven people in my house right now. Three bedrooms, two baths,ÂŽ said Ward. ÂTheyÂve been with me since the storm.ÂŽ For the Â“rst week, he drove across the state line into Alabama for gas to run the generator. Gas has been easier to get locally in recent days, but lines are still long, he said. Because one of the people staying with him has diabetes, her insulin must remain cold, which is why they need to run the generator so much. WardÂs property beside the road is a tangle of oak trees, twisted metal and downed power lines. Without Â”inching, he steps over and under the wires as if they were rope. ÂJust tuck up under here,ÂŽ he says, ducking under a thick power line. Sale, the county spokeswoman, says the Red Cross has roving emergency response vehicles, and a Â“re station in nearby Bayou George is a distribution point where groups have been dropping household items, food and tarps. Ward says the neighbors have been relying more on each other. He checks in frequently with a group of twentysomething men and women who live across the street in a mobile home on a few acres. ÂYouÂre good on your MREÂs?ÂŽ he asked them on a recent day. ÂIf you want water, you know where my pump is. ThereÂs also a bathing station there. Bring a washrag. ThereÂs bars of soap.ÂŽ ÂYeah, IÂll probably use that, but my dadÂs got a running creek he said we could go use,ÂŽ said Ronald Lauricella, who owns the mobile home on the property. Their yard is a mishmash of downed limbs, piled-up garbage and two tents. Two dogs and a small kitten roam the property. Lauricella is staying in one tent and keeping food in another. The inside of his mobile home is another explosion of chaos. The front door and his bedroom window were blown out from the hurricaneÂs winds. Water soaked the carpets and drywall. ÂThereÂs bugs everywhere,ÂŽ he said. ÂIt smells. You can smell the mold growing.ÂŽ Lauricella, 19, has no property insurance. HeÂs in between jobs, and hopes to make it to an interview at a restaurant this week if he can scrape up enough money for gas. He Â“gures itÂs his only hope to recover from the storm. ÂNo oneÂs really sending help our way,ÂŽ Lauricella said.Folks in rural part of Panhandle ask: WhereÂs the help?

By LAWRENCE MOWER and DAVID SMILEYTAMPA BAY TIMESTALLAHASSEE Â„ An undercover FBI agent might have paid more than $4,000 in food and drinks for one of Andrew GillumÂs campaign fundraisers in 2016, according to a new batch of records released Friday. But the contribution in early 2016 does not appear in the records for GillumÂs political committee, raising new questions less than two weeks before FloridaÂs governorÂs race between Gillum and Republican Ron DeSantis is decided on Nov. 6. The fundraiser for GillumÂs political committee, Forward Florida, was on April 11, 2016, at the home of Adam Corey, a former lobbyist and a former longtime friend of GillumÂs, according to an invoice and emails released by CoreyÂs lawyer, Chris Kise. About 40 people who attended the fundraiser were served Â“let mignons, salmon mousse canaps and cocktails, provided by 101 Restaurant, which was then run by Corey. Emails show Corey billed ÂMike Miller,ÂŽ who happened to be an undercover FBI agent investigating Tallahassee corruption, for the $4,300 tab. ÂAttached is the invoice for the dinner you graciously offered to sponsor,ÂŽ Corey wrote to Miller Â“ve days after the fundraiser. ÂAs mentioned, it was a bit higher than I expected because of some last minute attendees so let me know what you would like to cover and IÂll handle the rest. Again, I really appreciate this!ÂŽ Forward FloridaÂs records do not show the contribution, and itÂs unclear from the records whether Miller, or someone else, ultimately paid for it. Geoff Burgan, a Gillum campaign spokesman said in a statement that KiseÂs decision to release the records was politically motivated, and that Gillum Âdid not receive any contributions or in-kinds from Mike Miller.ÂŽ But an email from Corey to Brice Barnes, a campaign Â“nance consultant who was helping Gillum at the time, indicates that Gillum was aware of MillerÂs help. ÂDid he connect with Mike Miller to thank him for co-sponsoring the food?ÂŽ Corey asked Barnes. ÂHe sent him a personal note,ÂŽ she replied. Reached Friday, Barnes said, ÂI donÂt have any information other than the email exchange.ÂŽ Juan-Carlos Planas, an elections law attorney and former Republican Miamiarea state Representative, called the lack of reporting Âa clear violation.ÂŽ ÂItÂs something that should automatically be sanctioned,ÂŽ he said. Planas said campaigns are often lax about documenting in-kind catering contributions despite the requirements of state law. He said heÂs a stickler with his clients because itÂs something that can easily be overlooked on Â“nance reports. Mark Herron, the attorney registered as an agent for Forward Florida when the committee initially opened, did not immediately respond for comment. The latest release of records came from Kise, a Tallahassee attorney who on Tuesday released 150 pages of records, including texts messages and emails between Corey, Gillum and Miller. Those records indicated that undercover agents gave Gillum a ticket to the Broadway musical ÂHamiltonÂŽ during a trip to New York in 2016, a revelation that has dominated the second-to-last week of GillumÂs historic run for governor. Gillum cut ties with Corey, his friend since college, last year. But the more than 80 pages of records released Friday led to additional questions about GillumÂs coziness with the former lobbyist and his clients. Corey either arranged or attended seven trips for Gillum in 2016, including a February trip to Tampa to meet with affordable housing developer Peter Leach, one of CoreyÂs clients, and a two-night trip in Atlanta in July. FridayÂs records show Leach billed Corey $200 for the round-trip Â”ight aboard his companyÂs jet. Gillum paid for his share out of his ofÂ“ce account, according to previous reports. While on the trip, Gillum also met with former Gov. Charlie Crist, who was running for Congress, and former Chief Financial OfÂ“cer Alex Sink. ÂThe mayor was invited by Peter Leach to a meeting at his ofÂ“ce to learn about some of the work he was doing to advance wraparound social services in schools and housing developments,ÂŽ GillumÂs chief of staff, Jamie Van Pelt, told the Tallahassee Democrat last year. ÂWhile visiting Tampa the mayor also met with local political leaders before returning to Tallahassee.ÂŽ The purpose of the Atlanta trip is unknown. The records include emails with Gillum asking Corey to upgrade his room at a Westin hotel, but they do not show who ultimately paid the bill. Kise said Friday that Gillum did not reimburse Corey. ÂMayor Gillum did not pay Corey for those hotel rooms,ÂŽ he said. ÂYou will have to ask him for his credit card records to determine whether he paid for them himself.ÂŽ Kise, has been compiling the records in response to a Florida Commission on Ethics probe looking into whether Gillum accepted gifts worth more than $100 without disclosing them during the New York trip and a trip to Costa Rica. The complaint was Â“led this year by Tallahassee businessman Erwin Jackson, a longtime Gillum critic. On Thursday, Jackson said he had asked the ethics commission to include the Tampa trip in his complaint.New Gillum documents show FBI agent might have paid for fundraiser dinner WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.

Â„ Forty-eight years after leaving Eastern High School to join the United States Navy, Dann Huisken recently received his diploma. In 1970, the nowretired chief petty officer was an 18-year-old senior at Eastern who decided to enlist in the midst of the Vietnam War. ÂI knew I needed structure and to get away,ÂŽ Huisken, 66, told the Lansing State Journal. ÂThe Navy was the perfect opportunity.ÂŽ He first moved to Lansing in fourth grade, attending Forest View Elementary, West and Water French junior high schools en route to Eastern. His mother wouldnÂt let him join the United States Army. She did, however, allow him to enlist in the U.S. Navy. ÂShe liked their uniforms,ÂŽ Huisken said moments before he was awarded his high school diploma by the districtÂs Board of Education. Under Michigan law, honorably discharged veterans of World War II, Korea, or Vietnam can obtain their high school diplomas if they enlisted or were drafted before they could do so. After enlisting, Huisken headed to Detroit for a battery of tests and was made a radioman after acing a communications test. Huisken volunteered to go to San Diego for boot camp. His first posting in the Navy was in the Philippines, where he stayed for 18 months. He was assigned to the aircraft carrier USS Constellation in 1973, which was stationed off the coast of Vietnam. Later, after undergoing shoulder surgery, Huisken was stationed on the Greek island of Crete as well as in Nevada. He was honorably discharged from the Navy in 1980 after a decade of active service. He followed that with 16 years in the Navy Reserve. Before leaving active duty, Huisken applied for and received his GED. But he still wanted that h igh school diploma from his former school.By KSENIA GORINSHTEYNMINNESOTA DAILYMINNEAPOLIS Â„ With blank pages in front of them, participants sat at tables organized in a tight, intimate circle. Observing the different charcoal tools available to them, they listened to the artist describe their various uses. ÂDonÂt eat the charcoal,ÂŽ said Caytlin Neuburger, a University of Minnesota senior studying communications and studio art with a focus on illustration. ÂItÂs not meant to be ingested, but as long as you arenÂt eating giant bags of it you should be good.ÂŽ TransFabulous workshops create a space for trans youth Â„ though all are welcome Â„ to express themselves through different artistic mediums while connecting the Twin Cities transgender community. This monthÂs workshop presented charcoal as an artistic outlet, Minnesota Daily reported. What began as a summer series at several Hennepin County Library branches has grown into a monthly workshop at the Minneapolis Central Library. The workshops feature a different artist and medium every month, focusing on trans and gender nonconforming artists. ÂItÂs a way for a group that doesnÂt have a lot of programming offered to say the library is for you,ÂŽ said Ray Lockman, a librarian at the Minneapolis Central Library and one of three project managers for TransFabulous. ÂThatÂs been a really cool thing to watch as people stop by for one and it kind of transforms their feeling of belonging.ÂŽ The workshop gives the artist freedom to teach the medium in their own style. Neuburger led the night with casual conversation and encouraging suggestions that allowed each participant to explore charcoal as a form of their own. Â(Charcoal is) a forgiving medium, but also a little delicate,ÂŽ Neuburger explained. The inspiration for the night was a still-life set-up in the middle of the room that included a mirror, a pride Â”ag and a bouquet of lavender in a teapot, among additional objects. Each workshop attendee began their still-life drawing differently. Some started with small details, like individual lavender buds, and others started with larger shapes and Â“gures that would be Â“lled with Â“ne details later. ÂArt is very much a community-driven sort of activity,ÂŽ Neuburger said. ÂIf people do want to bring some heavier emotions into art then itÂs a great way to express that in a way where you can get feedback.ÂŽ The community curators try to organize the workshops so that one monthÂs medium isnÂt similar to the next. This allows attendees to explore several artistic skills and Â“nd the one that resonates most. ÂIÂm just blown away by peopleÂs creativity and their ability to take on an entire workshop and lead as well,ÂŽ said Chase Underwood, a university junior studying family social science. Underwood attended a zine workshop two years ago and is now a TransFabulous community curator. TransFabulous is a space for trans youth to meet other trans people in the community and to express emotions and issues that may otherwise be difÂ“cult to convey. ÂI think that art is a way for trans people to feel resilience in a lot of ways,ÂŽ Underwood said. ÂIt can be really healing being able to focus on your identity. ItÂs another way for us to create our own representation.ÂŽNATIONAL NEWS ANSWER TO CROSSWORD FIBBERLIBIDOSTRAP AMARNAUNITARDSCHAFE KIBITZCROSSBOWRETRO ENYAOAKENHIDEARSON SNARKYICETDOME OTTERABACUSMENSSHOP WRENCHRESTVINETORY LIPOUBEREGADASHLAR SOSALLACARDIBLEDTO EBOOKUSAUSAARIES NOLITABRATZDONUTS BALEDTHEFBIPARTB LEDGESAVEUSUSESJIF INVADENEWTAPSOTATA GAINABELTRIPSEIZED HECTARESTOILETSEZME LUSHPUNTTWITCH ARBYSEGANEPSONLAMP LEAPSSANDRAOHEMINOR ENNUITHEREIGOPOPDUO STATEMADDOWTOSSEDMichigan veteran receives high school diploma after 48 yearsMinnesota workshops provide space for transgender youth AP PHOTOIn this Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2018 photo, University of Minnesota senior Caytlin Neuburger teaches an art class at Central Library in downtown Minneapolis.

Â„ A cast of political and legal adversaries met in a Beaufort County courtroom Friday to argue the guilt or innocence of the notorious pirate Blackbeard, 300 years after he was killed in a battle in the waters off North CarolinaÂs Ocracoke Island. It was a mock court, but the evidence presented came straight from the historical record, and the questions were real. Was Blackbeard a stone-cold criminal who treasonously slaughtered King George IÂs men aboard their ship that November day in 1718? Or was he the victim of an unlawful ambush Â“ghting in selfdefense against a crew of men he had no way of knowing represented the royal crown? ÂWe are speciÂ“cally interested in whether it was lawful and proper for the colony of Virginia to dispatch armed forces into their neighboring colony of North Carolina in order to capture or kill suspected pirates operating out of the ports of Bath and Ocracoke,ÂŽ real-life Superior Court Judge J. Carlton Cole told the courtroom. Over the course of the next two hours, nearly 100 observers, including dozens of local school students and some county residents who may claim descendancy from some of BlackbeardÂs former crew members, listened as present-day Beaufort County District Attorney Seth Edwards faced off against business and probate attorney J. Erik Groves of Waxhaw. Edwards represented a powder-wigged Virginia Lt. Gov. Alexander Spotswood, portrayed by Dennis Loba of Virginia. It was Spotswood who personally Â“nanced the hiring of a pair of private vessels and crew to make a foray into the waters off North Carolina to Â“nd and either kill or capture Blackbeard and his piratical associates. Groves represented Blackbeard, portrayed in villainous splendor by Carl Cannon of Beaufort. Having been slain and beheaded during the skirmish in 1718, Blackbeard did not take the stand in his defense at FridayÂs proceedings.Legend vs. truthThe event was one of many in coastal N.C. communities this year that have commemorated the 300th anniversary of BlackbeardÂs demise, some more scholarly than others. This one was organized and scripted by N.C. historian, author and Â“lmmaker Kevin Duffus, who has spent thousands of hours Â“nding and studying primary-source documents to try and sort Blackbeardian legend from truth. As costumed players noted in ÂcourtÂŽ using details Duffus has gleaned from his years of research, Blackbeard Â„ whose non-pirate name likely was Edward Thatch and who may have been born Edward Beard in Beaufort County Â„ has been the subject of much conjecture and exaggeration, some of it his own. Blackbeard is said to have cultivated a fearsome reputation during his two years as a professional pirate, but that may have been a way to prevent violence rather than to promote it. If other ship captains believed he might kill them, the theory goes, they might have been more likely to give up their cargo without a Â“ght. Through ÂtestimonyÂŽ on Friday, Duffus showed that the lieutenant governor of Virginia might have used BlackbeardÂs notoriety to justify sending armed forces into North Carolina, when what he may really have wanted was to embarrass thenGov. Charles Eden and possibly seize BlackbeardÂs rumored piles of treasure. As Duffus asserted Friday, the 1700s were difÂ“cult economic times for colonial governments and their people, both of whom may have been willing to take what didnÂt belong to them in order to survive. Even George I was willing to overlook a bit of plundering. He issued a pardon for pirates, which North Carolina extended to Blackbeard and his men though they did not technically qualify for it, having committed additional crimes after the cutoff date it speciÂ“ed. George issued a second, more lenient pardon that almost certainly would have exonerated Blackbeard and his men if they had lived to see it arrive by ship from England.What happened on that day in 1718?Role-players at FridayÂs hearing suggested Blackbeard might have been getting out of the pirate business in 1718. He may have intentionally run his Â”agship, the Queen AnneÂs Revenge, aground near Beaufort Inlet off present-day Atlantic Beach, forcing the immediate layoff of most of his 300 men. He later traveled with a smaller group to Ocracoke, and was there in November when SpotswoodÂs hired guns found him. Accounts of the day report that when he saw the ships approach him, Blackbeard called to ask who they were and where they were from. The leader of the mission, Lt. Robert Maynard, played Friday by John Collamore of Virginia, told him they werenÂt pirates, and that they were coming for him. Spotswood had hired the men under the authority of a general proclamation by the king to go after pirates, but he had no speciÂ“c charge from George I to pursue Blackbeard. Spotswood, not the Royal Navy, paid the men, whose personal boats had no insignia of the Royal Navy. At the time, the Royal Navy had no uniforms, so the men wore clothing of the day. Spotswood indicated the ship had a Â”ag, likely the Union Jack, but the weather was so still that day that the ships to be pulled by row boats, so the Â”ag likely was hanging limp. Under the circumstances, Duffus postulated, Blackbeard probably thought he was being attacked by disgruntled former employees or South Carolinians looking for revenge over his earlier blockade of their Charleston port.WhatÂs the verdict?For his part, Spotswood argued through his living history actor, he viewed it as his duty to go after Blackbeard because Gov. Eden not only tolerated the pirate, but was in cahoots with him. The exercise had no effect on BlackbeardÂs legal standing. But in DuffusÂ view, it wasnÂt Blackbeard who was on trial Friday, but popularized history, which sometimes lacks context and often overlooks facts. ÂThe evidence is overwhelming,ÂŽ Duffus said afterward, Âthat Blackbeard wasnÂt such a bad guy.ÂŽBlackbeard the pirate goes on ÂtrialÂ in NC courtroom AP PHOTONorth Carolina historian and author Kevin Duffus wrote the script for a mock trail of Bluebeard the pirate in Washington, N.C., based on documents found in courthouses and archives.

To bolster his argument for sticking with the rally, Trump argued that the New York Stock Exchange was opened the day after 9/11, though in fact it was reopened on September 17. Speaking to a massive, cheering crowd at an airport hangar in southern Illinois, Trump said Âthe hearts of all Americans are filled with grief, following the monstrous killing.ÂŽ He told reporters before the rally that he would travel to Pittsburgh, though he did not offer details. He also sought to distance himself from the man arrested in the shooting, calling him ÂsickÂŽ and saying Âhe was no supporter of mine.ÂŽ Trump promised to change his tone for the Saturday night rally given the events of the day. While he avoided some of his most fiery rhetoric, he still targeted Pelosi and Democrats and the crowd gleefully shouted Âlock her up,ÂŽ in reference to Hillary Clinton, one of the targets of the bomb plot. Continuing to emphasize his hardline immigration rhetoric, Trump said: ÂRepublicans want strong borders, no crime, and no caravans.ÂŽ TrumpÂs speech to a convention of the Future Farmers of America had all the hallmarks of a Trump rally, as the president riffed on trade, jobs and some of his political enemies. At one point he also joked about his hair. He said it was ruffled by the rain as he left Washington, adding ÂI said, Âmaybe I should cancel this arrangement because I have a bad hair day.ÂŽ Trump offered an unsparing denunciation of anti-Semitism, which he said was the motive behind the attack, in contrast to remarks after clashes between white supremacists and counterprotesters in Charlottesville last year. Then, he only inÂ”amed tensions by blaming both sides for the violence. Speaking to young farmers in Indianapolis, Trump called on the country to come together, before inviting a pastor and rabbi on stage to pray. Earlier in the day, Trump speculated that the death toll in Pittsburgh would have been curbed if an armed guard had been in the building. With both the number of deaths and details of the synagogueÂs security still to be disclosed, Trump said gun control Âhas little to do with itÂŽ but Âif they had protection inside, the results would have been far better.ÂŽ But the attack did not persuade him that tighter gun controls are needed. ÂThis is a case whe re, if they had an armed guard inside, they might have been able to stop him immediately,ÂŽ Trump said. ÂMaybe there would have been nobody killed, except for him, frankly. So itÂs a very, very Â„ a very difficult situation.ÂŽ In previous mass shootings, Trump has at times said he would consider tightening gun laws but in the main has called for more armed guards in places such as schools. ÂThe world is a violent world,ÂŽ he said before his speech. ÂAnd you think when youÂre over it, it just sort of goes away, but then it comes back in the form of a madman, a wacko. ... They had a maniac walk in and they didnÂt have any protection and that is just so sad to see, so sad to see.ÂŽ Trump said lawmakers Âshould very much bring the death penalty into vogueÂŽ and people who kill in places such as synagogues and churches Âreally should suffer the ultimate price.ÂŽTRUMPFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOA man holds his head as he is escorted out of the Tree of Life Congregation by police following a shooting at the Pittsburg synagogue, Saturday. alleged Tree of Life Synagogue shooter,ÂŽ the statement read.

He is scheduled to make his Â“rst court appearance Monday. That radicalism is a stark contrast to the mid-2000s, when Sayoc managed and performed with two male-dance revues Â„ ÂMen of SteelÂŽ and ÂAmerican Hunks.ÂŽ He never expressed political views back then, Crosby said. ÂI donÂt know if he was a Democrat or Republican,ÂŽ said Crosby, who now runs a gym and is a comedian near Minneapolis. Along with three or four other chiseled men, Crosby and Sayoc traveled the country by van, stripping to G-strings for screaming women in honkytonks and nightclubs. They would check into a motel, perform, bring women back to party, sleep a few hours and then get up early the next morning to drive several hours to the next gig. ÂItÂs a hard life,ÂŽ Crosby said, quite seriously. The partying, bad food and lack of exercise takes a toll, he said. Sayoc hosted, then danced last. Crosby said he and the other all-but-naked dancers would bring women up on stage, make them and their friends laugh and do some sexual innuendo Â„ except Sayoc, who wasnÂt a good performer.

He said Sayoc had a Âzero to 100ÂŽ temper and would sometimes use his 6-foot, 250-pound frame to intimidate other men. ÂIf he wasnÂt happy about something, he would deÂ“nitely let you know,ÂŽ Crosby said. Still, he never saw Sayoc hit anyone and he treated his employees well Â„ though he would sometimes scam the showsÂ Â“nancial backers. For example, Crosby said Sayoc would sometimes drive separately in his own older van, though not the now infamous one he was arrested with. He would then take parts from the troupeÂs newer van, which was owned by an investor, and swap them with dying parts from his clunker, Crosby said. Sayoc would then ask the investor to pay for the troupe vanÂs now-needed repairs. Twelve years later, however, when Sayoc worked for Gureghian at New River Pizza in Fort Lauderdale, honesty and reliability were his job-saving attributes. He never stole and customers never complained, Gureghian said. But until he quit earlier this year, he regularly subjected co-workers to Â“ery political rants. Gureghian called his views Âpure hatred.ÂŽ He detested liberals, blacks, Jews and especially gays, who he called slurs, Gureghian said. Gureghian said Sayoc used his van for deliveries and one rainy night he offered her a ride home. ÂThe Â“rst thing I did was kind of look to make sure Â„ God forbid Â„ if something happened, can I open that door to get out and how do tuck and roll?ÂŽ she said. Sayoc lived in the van and Gureghian said it was a mess. There were empty containers from fast-food restaurants, menÂs Â“tness supplements and alcoholic beverages. Dirty clothes were everywhere. And, ominously, there were dolls with their heads cut off. ÂHe told me he was Â“xing them for his two nieces,ÂŽ Gureghian said.PERSONALITYFROM PAGE 1 CESAR SAYOC By JAY WEAVERMIAMI HERALD (TNS)MIAMI Â„ The quick arrest of a homeless man living in his van on charges of sending more than a dozen mail bombs to notable Democrats around the country may have signaled the climax of a massive federal investigation during the past week Â„ but itÂs far from over. Federal agents are still searching for other possible suspects in South Florida who may have helped Cesar Sayoc, the former stripper and self-described entertainment promoter who was arrested Friday at an auto parts store in Plantation. Friday night, FBI agents questioned a person at a Broward County residence with a potential connection to Sayoc, but nothing came of the interview, according to law enforcement sources familiar with the probe. Investigators are also analyzing SayocÂs impounded van in which he lived and allegedly built the pipe bombs because it contains a trove of valuable evidence, from explosive-device materials to credit-card receipts. They say the vehicle, covered with attacks on critics of President Donald Trump, directly links the 56-year-old Aventura man to the crime of mailing explosive devices from South Florida to the Democratic targets. Among them: former President Barack Obama, former Democratic presidential Hillary Clinton, actor Robert De Niro and billionaire Â“nancier and political megadonor George Soros. According to sources, Sayoc told FBI agents and other authorities during a brief interview at the bureauÂs South Florida Â“eld ofÂ“ce in Miramar that he never meant to hurt any of the intended targets Â„ though the FBIÂs director later said the pipe bombs were not Âhoax devices.ÂŽ Sayoc eventually clammed up, invoking his Miranda rights and asking to speak with a lawyer. Despite allegedly committing practically the entire mail-bombing campaign from South Florida, Sayoc will be whisked away to New York after appearing in federal court in Miami for a removal hearing on Monday. He will be prosecuted by the U.S. AttorneyÂs OfÂ“ce in the Southern District of New York, based on evidence that at least Â“ve of the 14 packages were sent to that area, including CNNÂs ofÂ“ces in Manhattan. Many criminal and legal experts in South Florida called the New York U.S. Attorney OfÂ“ceÂs takeover of the case a classic Âpower grabÂŽ of a national case that really belongs in South Florida. One former federal prosecutor said MiamiÂs new U.S. attorney, Ariana Fajardo Orshan, got a Âdose of the SDNY.ÂŽ During a Friday news conference at the Justice Department in Washington, D.C., Fajardo was conspicuously absent from the stage of senior ofÂ“cials, which included Attorney General Jeff Sessions, FBI Director Christopher Wray and the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, Geoffrey Berman. Wray credited the Âphenomenal workÂŽ of federal agents and FBI lab experts along with state and local police in New York, the Washington, D.C., area, Delaware, Florida and California, where authorities say the bomb-Â“lled manila envelopes were sent by Sayoc since Oct. 18. All of the packages, which had the return address of the congressional ofÂ“ce of U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, were routed through a U.S. Postal Service mail sorting facility in Opa-locka. A trail of telltale clues helped investigators quickly focus the nationwide manhunt on Sayoc. Among the connections: a latent Â“ngerprint on an envelope sent to California Rep. Maxine Waters along with DNA residue on two devices sent to Waters and Obama. They matched with DNA records kept by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement that were collected from Sayoc in previous state criminal cases. Wray thanked FDLE for Âtheir very quick workÂŽ in helping make the DNA connection before SayocÂs arrest Friday morning. ÂWe do believe that weÂve caught the right person,ÂŽ he said. ÂOnce I knew they (the FBI) had a print, I was pretty conÂ“dent weÂd be able to Â“nd the right person.ÂŽ Agents also scrutinized SayocÂs voluminous social media posts, his cellphone records and his movements throughout South Florida to link him to the threats against Democratic targets. Sources told the Miami Herald that those database searches did not reveal evidence that Sayoc was inÂ”uenced by any terrorist organizations, including Islamic State. The notorious Middle Eastern terrorist groupÂs propaganda has been posted on social media of several convicted felons who attempted to carry out past bombings in South Florida. Wray would not say if there might be other potential suspects associated with the packages, citing the ongoing investigation. Sayoc, who is being held at the federal detention center in downtown Miami, was arrested on a criminal complaint on charges of interstate transportation of an explosive, illegal mailing of explosives, threats against a former president and other high-ranking former government ofÂ“cials, threatening interstate communications and assaulting federal ofÂ“cers. The Â“ve charges carry a potential 58 years in total prison time if Sayoc is convicted, Sessions said.Feds widen search for others who may have helped Florida mail-bomb suspect

My first game patent was for a family video poker game titled Fortune 1 Draw Poker. In the 1980s, I introduced Megabucks, the first wide-area progressive-jackpot slot machine network.

Even worse, most people havenÂt been socking away even $5,000 annually. About 24 percent of workers said they had less than $1,000 saved for retirement, according to the 2017 Retirement Confidence Survey, and a whopping 55 percent of workers had less than $50,000 saved. Conventional wisdom has long suggested that you save and invest 10 percent of your income each year, but thatÂs not best for all.

While a stock slide of more than 40 percent over that period seems to imply that some aspect of the business went off the rails, the more likely explanation is far less entertaining: The company has simply posted some earnings per share (EPS) numbers in past quarters that didnÂt meet analyst expectations. That doesnÂt mean the business is struggling. In fact, secondquarter 2018 revenue jumped 14 percent, and net income soared 26 percent compared to the year-ago period. ItÂs true that Owens Corning has experienced higher-thanexpected material costs, which dragged down gross profit margin in the first six months of the year. But the temporary headwinds donÂt justify how the shares have been punished. That has created an intriguing opportunity for long-term investors. Owens Corning stock is now looking undervalued, with a forwardlooking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio recently well below 10. The tumbling share price has also nearly doubled the dividend yield, recently at 1.7 percent. (The dividend payout has increased by an annual average of 7 percent over the past four years, too, and has plenty of room to grow more.) With management expecting an eventual rebound in material purchasing prices, Owens Corning deserves a closer look. Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentUnder Armour LossesMy dumbest investment by far has been shares of Under Armour. I saw the companyÂs logo everywhere, which seemed promising. I bought shares three times in about five months Â„ after it would drop, IÂd buy more. I stopped after the bad quarters started to stack up, and finally sold most of it to take a tax loss this year. I put the proceeds into my favorite stock, Apple. The lesson I learned is that I prefer stocks that pay dividends. Dividends keep paying you, even if you have to wait for a company to turn its fortunes around. Dividends also let you engage in dollar-cost averaging, reinvesting your dividends into additional shares of stock. IÂm much happier now with Apple, which is a dividend payer and a growth company. ItÂs the best of both worlds. Â„ Mike C., Apex, North Carolina The Fool Responds: Apple has indeed been rewarding its shareholders well, with both dividends and share-price appreciation. ItÂs not a guaranteed gold mine, though. Under Armour has indeed fallen from its heights of a few years ago. Still, it has its believers, who see growth opportunities abroad, promise from its cost-cutting initiatives and a return to dependable profitability looming. Believers may want to hang on, but thereÂs nothing wrong with favoring solid, growing dividend payers, either. Split-AdjustedQ What does Âthe index effectÂŽ mean in the investment world? Â„ H.R., Jackson, MichiganAThe index effect is what happens when a given stock is added or removed from a major stock index. Remember that companies are routinely added to or removed from various indexes Â„ sometimes because they grow too big or small for the index theyÂre in, sometimes because they merge with or are acquired by another company, or perhaps because theyÂve grown more or less important.Consider the Standard and PoorÂs 500, or ÂS&P 500,ÂŽ as an example. ThereÂs more than $3 trillion invested in index funds that track it Â„ so if it adds a new company to its roster, all of those funds will have to buy shares of that stock, and all that buying can send the stock price up to some degree. Conversely, stocks removed from an index can see their prices fall. Typically, though, these spikes or drops are not long-lasting.***QWhat education and credentials do stockbrokers have to have? Â„ G.B., Portland, OregonAA college degree is often required. Stockbrokers also need to be registered with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), typically by passing the Series 7 (general securities representative exam) licensing examination Â„ and perhaps some other exams, too, such as Series 63 (uniform securities agent state law exam) and Series 65 (uniform investment adviser law exam).Remember, though, that these exams donÂt measure a brokerÂs skill at identifying great investments. Worse still, brokers donÂt have to abide by the fiduciary standard that applies to investment advisers, requiring that recommendations be in your best interest. Instead, they just have to offer ÂsuitableÂŽ (and possibly high-cost) investments. It can be helpful to think of them, generally, more as salespeople than as independent financial advisers.Want more information about stocks?

The U.S. personal savings rate was 6.6 percent in August, which is lower than it has been in recent months. (It was 7.4 percent in February, for example.) Consider, too, that Americans were saving more than 10 percent of their income for much of the 1960s and 1970s. Since most of us will be relying on ourselves for much of our retirement income, itÂs important that we sock away enough to live off of in the future. DonÂt just assume that youÂre doing enough. If you save, say, $5,000 per year for 25 years, that might seem like a lot, but if, invested, it grew at 8 percent annually, it would total close to $400,000, That would give you under $16,000 in your first year of retirement, if you made a conservative 4 percent withdrawal. Add that to Social Security retirement income (which recently averaged about $17,000 annually) and it still wouldnÂt be a lot to live on. 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

A Facebook friend informed him about it. The message arrived late at night while I was sleeping, and he woke me to tell me the news. He is now receiving condolences from friends that he is responding to as though he were grieving. Abby, the old girlfriend and my husband split up on very bad terms. She not only cheated on him but gave him an STD. I am appalled and feel hurt that this is happening. Friends of mine are surprised and suspicious about it. I confronted my husband and asked him if the situation were reversed and I were the one who died and an old ame started receiving condolences, how would he feel? Jerry said it wouldnÂt bother him. Is it normal to send condolences to old ames? Â„ DEATHLY CONFUSED IN TEXAS DEAR DEATHLY: ItÂs normal to inform others about a death, but considering the circumstances of the breakup, whatÂs going on isnÂt Ânormal.ÂŽ ItÂs possible that the messages your husband is receiving are from other Facebook friends who are connected to the sender of the original message. While it isnÂt unusual for old friends to reach out to each other after news of a death, to convey it in the form of a condolence to an ex-boyfriend after the romance is long over strikes me as somewhat odd. My advice is to remain calm, donÂt let it give you heartburn and wait for the emotions to subside with time. DEAR ABBY: The holidays are approaching, and I suspect many young couples are facing the same problem about where to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have two daughters Â„ one married and one single. The married daughterÂs motherin-law has declared that this is ÂherÂŽ year for Thanksgiving, and next year is ÂherÂŽ year for Christmas. She has three sons, none of whom lives within four hours of her home. All three sons have children. DonÂt you think the sons and their wives should decide for themselves if they want to travel for the holidays? They may prefer to spend Christmas morning in their own homes. Also, what about her daughters-in-lawÂs parents? Perhaps they, too, have other grown children who would like to decide what they want to do for the holidays. My philosophy is to plan my holidays and invite my children. If they can come, great! If not, there are no hard feelings. If all of my children and grandchildren canÂt be here at the same time, I focus on the ones who are and enjoy the time I have with them. I think the woman is being disrespectful to her sons and daughters-in-law. What say you? Â„ FOCUS ON A GOOD TIME DEAR FOCUS: As your letter illustrates, not all mothers-in-law are alike. Some are iron-sted matriarchs who demand obedience from their grown children. Others, like you, are more easygoing. In my opinion, the woman you have described is less disrespectful than overbearing.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Do you have any ideas for making homemade potpourri? Â„ Teresa from Texas Yes, I am a fan of potpourri. The scent is so lovely around the house. You donÂt need to go farther than your kitchen to nd the ingredients to make an inexpensive potpourri. HereÂs how: Â„Combine your favorite dried spices, such as cloves, rosemary, bay leaves or lavender, thinly sliced dried citrus, such as lemon or orange, along with cinnamon sticks, allspice berries or dried rose buds or anything else you love. To enhance the fragrance, sprinkle vanilla or almond extract on the top. Â„Place bowls of potpourri in the warmest part of the room and away from pets and small children. You can set them near a candle or on a mantelpiece or near a lamp because the heat will bring out the aroma. Â„Potpourri makes a great holiday gift. Buy glass candle jars when they are on sale at big box stores. You can ll them with holiday potpourri and wrap a ribbon around the jar for an aromatic gift. Â„ Heloise Dear Readers: Most of us love dessert, and even better, one that is healthy, tasty and fast to make. Try this: Slice apples, peaches, pears or bananas. Sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg. Drizzle honey on the top. Bake on a lower temperature like 250 degrees for 5-10 minutes or until soft. Â„ Heloise Dear Heloise: My children are learning to do their own laundry. Do you have a quick checklist I can give them to use to follow to get good results? Â„ Victoria in Louisiana Dear Victoria: Indeed I do. Make sure you give each child a plastic laundry basket with a dierent color to hold their clothes. You should be on hand at rst to guide them through these simple steps: Â„Separate light clothes from dark. Â„Sort out delicate garments from heavier fabrics. Â„Clean out pockets and close zippers and hooks. Â„Pretreat spots and stains. Â„Choose the right washing cycle and measure detergent exactly. Â„ Heloise Dear Readers: When you are bringing cooked food to a potluck dinner or party, it can be such a hassle to keep it hot and to prevent it from spilling. HereÂs an easy solution: Put hot stews, soups, vegetables or pasta into a wide-mouth, half-gallon thermos. The food will remain hot and wonÂt spill inside your car. Â„ Heloise Dear Readers: As we know, home appliances break down and require repairs, which can be expensive, especially after the warranty expires. When you get an appliance, always keep the booklets that come with it. If something happens to the appliance, you can look at the troubleshooting sections to see what steps to take before calling for a repair service. Here are the simple ones to do: Â„ Check to be certain that the appliance is properly plugged in. Â„ Examine home fuses to be sure that one is not blown. Â„ Look to see if the lid or doors are ajar or not closed tightly. Â„ Heloise Dear Readers: If you are keeping cans of gas, paint containers or pesticides in your garage, they can be dangerous. Store them all in a safe place, such as high on shelves or locked in a separate area. Â„ HeloiseCondolences for death of manÂs ex-girlfriend confuses his partnerDear Abby Hints from Heloise
Page 8 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018WORLD NEWSBy CHRISTOPHER SHERMANASSOCIATED PRESSTAPANATEPEC, Mexico Â„ The Mexican government seems torn between stopping several thousand Central American migrants from traveling toward the U.S. border in a caravan or burnishing its international human rights image. On Saturday, more than a hundred federal police dressed in riot gear blocked a rural highway in southern Mexico shortly before dawn to encourage the migrants to apply for refugee status in Mexico rather than continuing the long, arduous journey north. U.S. President Donald Trump has urged Mexico to prevent the caravan from reaching the border. Police let the caravan proceed after representatives from MexicoÂs National Human Rights Commission convinced them that a rural stretch of highway without shade, toilets or water was no place for migrants to entertain an offer of asylum. Many members of the caravan have been travelling for more than two weeks, since a group Â“rst formed in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Not long after the caravan resumed the trek north Saturday, government ofÂ“cials were seen for the Â“rst time directly helping the migrants by giving rides in trucks and providing water along the scorching highway. Most of the migrants in the caravan appeared determined to reach the U.S., despite an offer of refuge in Mexico. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto launched a program on Friday dubbed ÂYou are home,ÂŽ which promises shelter, medical attention, schooling and jobs to Central Americans who agree to stay in the southern Mexico states of Chiapas or Oaxaca, far from the U.S. border. MexicoÂs Interior Ministry said that temporary identity numbers have been issued to 111 migrants under the program. The IDs, called CURPs, authorize the migrants to stay and work in Mexico, and the ministry said pregnant women, children and the elderly were among those who had joined the program and were now being attended at shelters. After another brutally hot day on the road with her husband and 8-year-old son, Alejandra Rodriguez said the possibility of health care and a work permit in Mexico sounded enticing. But as she laid out a tarp and blanket to sleep in a covered parking area in Tapanatepec, the 26-yearold from Tegucigalpa, Honduras said sheÂd prefer to start a new life further north. She had heard that job opportunities were scarce in southern Mexico. Orbelina Orellana said she and her husband were determined to continue north as well. ÂOur destiny is to get to the border,ÂŽ said Orellana, who left three children behind in San Pedro Sula. She was also suspicious of the Mexican proposal, fearing that she would be deported if she applies for asylum in Mexico. Mexican ofÂ“cials have greeted the caravan with a mixture of hospitality and hostility. Several mayors have rolled out the welcome mat for migrants who reached their towns Â„ arranging for food and camp sites. At other times, police have ejected migrants from passenger buses or prevented smaller groups from joining the caravan. The caravan still must travel 1,000 miles to reach the nearest U.S. border crossing at McAllen, Texas. The trip could be twice as long if the 4,000 or so migrants head for the Tijuana-San Diego frontier, as another caravan did earlier this year. Only about 200 in that group made it to the border. This yearÂs caravans have earned the ire of Trump. The Pentagon approved a request for additional troops at the southern border, likely to total several hundred, to help the U.S. Border Patrol as the president seeks to transform concerns about immigration and the caravan into electoral gains in the Nov. 6 midterms. Stoking fears about the caravan and illegal immigration to rally his Republican base, Trump insinuated that gang members and ÂMiddle EasternersÂŽ are mixed in with the group, though he later acknowledged there was no proof of that.Mexico torn between stopping, aiding migrant caravan By TRISHA THOMAS and NICOLE WINFIELDASSOCIATED PRESSVATICAN CITY Â„ A monthlong meeting of Catholic bishops marked by demands for womenÂs rights wrapped up Saturday with delegates saying a place for women at the churchÂs decision-making table was a Âduty of justiceÂŽ and that the church as a whole must recognize the urgency of Âinescapable change.ÂŽ Pope Francis had called the summit of church leaders to debate ways to better minister to young people and help them Â“nd their vocations in life. But the synod was quickly taken over by debate about issues that are particularly dear to the young in many parts of the world: the clergy sex abuse scandal, respect for gays, and womenÂs rights. The issue of women was particularly acute given only seven nuns were invited to participate in the synod alongside 267 cardinals, bishops and priests. None of the women had the right to vote on the Â“nal document. A petition launched on the sidelines of the synod demanding women religious superiors be allowed to vote garnered some 9,000 signatures, but reference in a draft to the gender disparity at future synods was scrapped in the Â“nal document. The language that was kept, however, was strong and included one of the few straight-forward recommendations in the entire 60-page document. ÂThe synod recommends that everyone be made aware of the urgency of an inescapable change,ÂŽ it said. It called for greater presence of women in church structures at all levels, including positions of responsibility, while respecting that the priesthood remains for men only. ÂItÂs a duty of justice, that Â“nds its inspiration in the way Jesus related to the men and women of his time, as well as the importance of the role of some female Â“gures in the Bible, in the history of salvation and in the life of the church,ÂŽ the document read. Church doctrine reserves the priesthood for men, given ChristÂs apostles were male. Women have often complained they have a second-class status in the church. HistoryÂs Â“rst Latin American pope has vowed to change that, but he has done little and counts no women among his own advisers. Paragraphs referencing the role of women in the church were among the most contested during the Â“nal vote Saturday. But the full text passed with only the paragraph referencing homosexuality and Âsexual inclinationsÂŽ receiving enough no votes as to threaten passage. In the end it passed with 178 yes votes and 65 no votes, approved with 12 yays to spare. The Â“nal text made no reference to ÂLGBTÂŽ faithful, which had been used in the preparatory document in what was a Â“rst for a Vatican text. While the term was rejected for the Â“nal document, the delegates voted to not scrap that initial text but to consider it Âcomplementary,ÂŽ suggesting that the LGBT term lives on in an ofÂ“cial way. On abuse, the bishops stopped short of issuing a straight-forward communal apology for the decades of sex abuse and cover-up committed by priests and their superiors against young people. While that section of the document was entitled ÂSeek Pardon,ÂŽ the text voted on by bishops said merely that no amount of repentance can heal the trauma caused to victims. Thirty bishops voted against it.Vatican meeting endorses women at the decision-making table AP PHOTOMexican federal police in riot gear block the highway to keep a thousands-strong caravan of Central American migrants from advancing on their way to the U.S. border, outside Arriaga, Mexico, Saturday.

C4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 28, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Home inspection finds that can stop a sale in its tracksHome inspections are a part of pretty much every real estate transaction, and that is understandable. Buying a home is the biggest Â“nancial decision most people will ever make, and you want to make sure you are making a good purchase. When we are working with sellers, we tell them not to get an inspection. ThatÂs not because we donÂt think they are important, but rather because the buyer is most likely going to want to get their own inspection, so there is no need for the seller to pay for something the buyer will be getting done on their own anyway. But we do encourage anyone who is considering putting their home up for sale to look at their home from the point of view of an inspector in order to identify any issues that need to be addressed. Some issues may not look like much to you if you have been living in the home for a long time and are used to them, but they may raise a big roadblock on the path to a successful sale. Here are some of the main things that can come up in an inspection that may kill your sale: 1. Structural issues This one should be obvious. If your home has issues with the basic structure or foundation, that is going to be a big problem for a potential buyer. These kind of issues can be very costly to Â“x, but need to be addressed immediately, unless you are willing to list your home at a deep discount. 2. Roof issues Another obvious potential problem spot. Any leaks Â„ and any interior damage the water has caused Â„ need to be Â“xed before a sale. Consult a reputable and licensed professional roofer. They may be able to repair your roof without needing to get the entire thing replaced. Roofs can be a big sticking point because opinions can vary on the need to replace older roofs, so getting an opinion from a trusted professional can be a big help. 3. Water damage and mold All water damage doesnÂt come from above. It can also come from below. If you have drainage issues that have caused water incursion in your home, you will need to have that issue resolved. Along with water damage, there can also be associated mold issues. Both of those can be huge stumbling blocks on the road to a sale. The following issues are mostly associated with older homes, but can still become a problem if you are thinking of listing your home: 1. Wiring Older homes may not be able to handle the load associated with modern conveniences. Not only can this be an annoyance with constantly tripping breakers, it can also be a Â“re hazard. A lot of electrical issues can be Â“xed without a great expense, but they still should be addressed by a professional. 2. Plumbing Most plumbing problems can be Â“xed with a quick trip to the hardware store, so making sure all your faucets are leak-free before showing your home is an easy task. 3. Well water If your home is on a well, make sure the pump is up to snuff and that your water is properly treated to not to be off-putting to potential buyers. You may have gotten used to the taste, but that doesnÂt mean somebody else wants to deal with it. Older homes also may have asbestos and lead paint that have to be dealt with before a sale. They are also things that must be disclosed before a sale can be completed, so just covering them up is not a solution. ItÂs important to remember that no home inspection of a pre-existing home is ever going to be perfect (if it is, that is probably a red Â”ag). The inspectorÂs job is to Â“nd things, and they are going to do just that. But donÂt let a few small issues stand between you and a home you love otherwise. Work with your Realtor to come to an understanding with the seller about what must be Â“xed before the sale and what you can handle after you move in.

C6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | October 28, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Campbell ranked in REAL TrendsBy Special to Highlands News-SunSEBRING Â„ Jeanny Campbell, a veteran Realtor with Re/Max Realty Plus, was recently recognized in the 2018 REAL Trends ÂAmericaÂs Best Real Estate ProfessionalsÂŽ rankings. The prestigious survey is divided into four categories: individual agents by sales volume, individuals by transaction sides, agent teams by volume and teams by sides. In Florida, Campbell placed 109 for most transactions as an individual agent. ÂItÂs an honor to be listed among such hardworking and dedicated professionals across the state and the country especially being from a small market in Highlands County compared to much larger markets,ÂŽ Campbell said. ÂThe Highlands County market has been strong, steadily improving in all areas, not only in residential, but also in vacant land, acreage and commercial. ÂThat, along with my 39 years of real estate expertise, allows for the ideal opportunity to provide clients with the highest level of customer service,ÂŽ she said. Campbell is proud to be associated with the Re/Max team, which sells more real estate in the county than any other real estate company, according to a recent press release. The combined Sebring and Lake Placid ofÂ“ces have reached 1,000 in closings and over $116 million in closings. ÂReal estate is a very competitive business and weÂre proud of our Re/ Max agents and teams for their outstanding professionalism and commitment to raising the bar in real estate,ÂŽ Re/Max CEO Adam Contos said. ÂThe real measure of success is customer satisfaction and thatÂs why year in, year out, homebuyers and sellers turn to Re/Max to help them with one of lifeÂs biggest investments.ÂŽ Nearly 1 in 4 agents (22.7 percent) in the REAL Trends 2018 ÂAmericaÂs Best Real Estate ProfessionalsÂŽ rankings is a Re/Max agent Â„ more than any other brand, according to the press release. Campbell can be reached at 863-3811848, e-mail Jeanny@ JeannyCampbell.com and everyone is encouraged to download her free app getmobile.remax.com/ JeannyCampbell. CAMPBELLUS average mortgage rates edge upBy The Associated PressLong-term U.S. mortgage rates edged slightly higher this week amid continued anxiety in Â“nancial markets as interest rates rise. Home borrowing rates remain at their highest levels in more than seven years, with the key 30-year rate approaching 5 percent. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday the rate on 30year, Â“xed-rate mortgages ticked up to an average 4.86 percent this week from 4.85 percent last week. A year ago, it stood at 3.94 percent. The average rate on 15-year, Â“xed-rate loans rose to 4.29 percent this week from 4.26 percent last week. Anxiety over rising interest rates, which stem from strength in the economy, has buffeted Â“nancial markets in recent weeks and spilled over into the housing market. Stocks have swooned over the last three weeks as investors worried about interest rates as well as trade tensions between the U.S. and China, and slowing economies outside the U.S. As of Wednesday, the S&P 500 index had plunged 9.4 percent in just three weeks, with two separate six-day losing streaks. It hadnÂt had a streak of losses that long since November 2016. The combination of higher borrowing costs and increasing home prices has made home ownership less affordable. Sales of new U.S. homes plunged 5.5 percent in September, the fourth straight monthly drop as the housing market cools, the government reported Wednesday. The annual rate of home sales has dropped 15.3 percent since May, eliminating much of the strength in sales from the Â“rst Â“ve months of 2018. Builders had assumed that a stronger economy would boost sales, yet a greater share of new construction is going unpurchased. Interest rates on Treasury bonds, which have climbed to seven-year highs in recent weeks, were steady this week. The yield on the key 10-year Treasury note, which can inÂ”uence mortgage rates, was at 3.14 percent Wednesday, down from 3.15 percent last week. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnÂt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. The average fee on 30year Â“xed-rate mortgages was unchanged from last week at 0.5 point. The fee on 15-year mortgages also held steady, at 0.4 point. The average rate for Â“ve-year adjustable-rate mortgages rose to 4.14 percent from 4.10 percent last week. The fee remained at 0.3 point.

FURNISHEDadno=3619649-1Creating the perfect kitchen islandBy MELISSA RAYWORTHTHE ASSOCIATED PRESSInterior designer Abbe Fenimore knew that adding a kitchen island was one of the most important decisions sheÂd make in remodeling her 1940s-era home in Dallas. A well-designed kitchen island can offer storage space, a work surface, comfortable seating Â„ even a cooktop or spare sink. But like so many aspects of kitchen design, it needs to be planned with extra care. An item this large and central isnÂt something youÂll want to replace within just a few years. So Fenimore and her husband created a cardboard island in their kitchen with precise dimensions to live with it before committing. They tinkered with the details on its size and location. They debated which features were necessary, and which were too much of a splurge or took up too much space. In the end, that island Âhas become the literal hub in our home for socializing,ÂŽ Fenimore says. WeÂve asked Fenimore, founder of the design Â“rm Studio Ten25, and two other interior designers Â„ Los Angelesbased Betsy Burnham and New York-based Jenny Kirschner Â„ for their thoughts on great kitchen-island design and trends.Map out the detailsBecause careful planning is so important, Burnham suggests working with a designer on kitchen-island design or Â“nding resources online for drawing up a Â”oorplan. ÂYouÂre going to need about 3 feet of space around it Â„ at least 3,ÂŽ she says. Homeowners sometimes end up with too crowded a kitchen if they choose an island thatÂs too large. ÂIt shouldnÂt literally be an island off by itself,ÂŽ Burnham says, Âbut it shouldnÂt be too close to perimeter countertops either.ÂŽ Other important questions: How many people do you want to seat? Leave plenty of depth for peopleÂs legs when they sit on bar stools or seats at your island. And do you want one level or two? Burnham loves the clean lines of one level surface. But Kirschner sometimes designs an island with two levels Â„ one at counter height for cooking prep and a lower level at table height, so you can sit in chairs rather than bar stools. Families with young kids who worry about little ones falling off bar stools often love this option, Kirschner says.Specialty storageSome of FenimoreÂs favorite elements are deep, pull-out drawers for pots and pans, and drawers with mechanisms that lift a mixer or other small appliance up and out for easy use. Also: drawers designed to hold containers of spices, and deep drawers holding metal containers for serving utensils, as you might see in a restaurant kitchen. ÂA lot of people underestimate storage needs,ÂŽ Fenimore says, so really think about how you cook and what you use. Kirschner also suggests considering what you might want to store that isnÂt technically a ÂkitchenÂŽ item. Her island includes drawers for her childrenÂs art supplies, because the island is where they do arts and crafts projects. Islands often have closed storage, but some people prefer some open shelving. Fenimore has a trash can built into her island, with a stainless steel opening in the islandÂs surface where unwanted items can easily be swept during cooking. ItÂs a detail that didnÂt add much to the cost but makes life exponentially easier.e cooktop questionIt sounds lovely Â„ having your stovetop in the island, so you can chat with someone seated there while youÂre cooking. But things splatter, Kirschner points out. And tearing up the Â”oor to add power and gas lines can be expensive if your kitchen doesnÂt already have these utilities in the middle of the Â”oor. The same goes for adding a sink to your island: These designers say an island sink is a great feature and popular with clients, but you have to consider the expense if youÂll need plumbing work done in the Â”oor. Lastly, your cooktop needs ventilation. Do you want a range hood mounted in the ceiling and looming over your kitchen island? ÂThere are downdraft vents,ÂŽ Kirschner says, Âbut they tend to not work nearly as wellÂŽ at ventilating your cooking space as overhead ranges do.Match or coordinate?Some people love an island that seamlessly matches the rest of the kitchen, with countertops and cabinetry identical to what runs along the roomÂs perimeter. But our three designers say you can also think of your island like a piece of gorgeous furniture that is coordinated with the rest of the room but a little different. If you want the island to be the kitchenÂs focal point, Kirschner says, get creative. Kirschner loves natural stone surfaces for kitchen islands, especially quartzite, which she says has beautiful veins of color but is more durable than marble. Burnham agrees that a kitchen island can be a dramatic statement, and there is a wide variety of styles. Do you want a European farm-table look, or modern and sleek marble? ÂWeÂve seen a lot of the dark blues and grays and greens, in reaction to all the white kitchens we were seeing for a while,ÂŽ Burnham says. ÂMaybe mix things up. Keep all the countertops the same, but maybe the perimeter cabinetry is one color and the island cabinetry is a different color.ÂŽ THE ASSOCIATED PRESSThis undated photo shows an urban farmhouse style kitchen in a Manhattan Beach, Calif., home designed by Betsy Burnham, where the kitchen island oers ample storage and an extra prep sink for use while cooking.

Although tiny pendant lights were once popular, designers now tend to choose more substantial overhead lighting above kitchen islands and select Â“xtures that can express the homeownersÂ personal style.

See page 2 for coverage. INDEX | Golf 4 | Lottery 2 | MLB 4 | Local Sports 3 | NBA 2 | NHL 2 | Tennis 6 | Scoreboard 5 | Colleges 7 | NFL 6 | Weather 8 By BOB FERRANTEASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE, Fla. Â„ Trevor Lawrence threw four touchdown passes, and No. 2 Clemson handed Florida State its worst home loss in program history with a 59-10 victory on Saturday. Lawrence completed 20 of 37 passes for 314 yards before staying on the sideline for good late in the third quarter. Tee Higgins and Amari Rodgers each had two touchdown receptions. The Tigers (8-0, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) moved to 8-0 for the seventh time in school history, including the third time in the last four seasons. They were dominant in the second quarter, scoring four touchdowns on consecutive drives en route to their fourth strwaight victory over the Seminoles. Florida State (4-4, 2-4) couldnÂt get out of its own way, suffering its most-lopsided defeat at home Â„ surpassing a 58-14 loss to Southern Miss in 1981. It was also the most points allowed by the Seminoles at Doak Campbell Stadium. ItÂs the Â“ rst time Clemson has won four straight in a series that dates to 1970. ItÂs also the Â“ rst time Florida State has lost four consecutive games to an ACC program (Miami previously achieved that feat before joining the league). Deondre Francois completed 17 of 36 passes for 180 yards and an interception for the Seminoles before departing due to injury. James Blackman came in and had a 73-yard touchdown pass to Keyshawn Helton. Florida State had not allowed 30 points in 11 straight games, but that streak was snapped less than a minute into the third quarter when Lawrence connected with Rodgers on a 58-yard catch and run.The takeawayClemson: The Tigers have cruised the last three weeks by a combined 163-20. Florida State: Florida State is 0-5 against ranked teams since the start of the 2017 season. Four of those losses are by double digits, including a 31-14 loss at Clemson last fall.Up nextClemson: Hosts Louisville on Saturday. Florida State: Visits No. 22 North Carolina State on Saturday, the second of three straight ranked opponents on the schedule. Florida State also plays at No. 3 Notre Dame on Nov. 10. COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Florida StateClemson hands Florida State worst home lossBy MARK LONGAP SPORTS WRITERJACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Â„ Jake Fromm threw three touchdown passes, ending speculation about freshman Justin Fields supplanting him in the starting lineup, and No. 7 Georgia beat ninthranked Florida 36-17 on Saturday. The Bulldogs took advantage of FloridaÂs three turnovers and an injury to cornerback C.J. Henderson to win the ÂWorldÂs Largest Outdoor Cocktail PartyÂŽ for the second straight year. Fromm completed 17 of 24 passes for 240 yards, none bigger than the three for scores Â„ all on third down. The Â“ rst two went to Jeremiah Holloman, who beat C.J. McWilliams both times. The Bulldogs (7-1, 5-1 Southeastern Conference) clearly were picking on McWilliams after he replaced Henderson (back) on the Â“ rst series. There had been talk that Georgia coach Kirby Smart would get highly touted freshman Fields more work following a 20-point loss to LSU. Fromm smashed those rumors. Florida (6-2, 4-2) took a one-point lead early in the third quarter Â„ Feleipe Franks threw a perfect, 36-yard touchdown pass to Freddie Swain Â„ but Georgia answered with another Fromm-to-Holloman connection and then pulled away late. Franks fumbled trying to get the ball out of the shadow of his goal line and gave the Bulldogs the ball at the 1. Georgia came up short on six attempts from inside the 2 and had to settle for a Â“ eld goal and a 23-14 lead. Despite the impressive goal-line stand, Florida couldnÂt get another stop. Fromm found Terry Godwin on another third down for a 36-yard score and a 29-17 advantage. The Gators were in big trouble at that point because theyÂre not built COLLEGE FOOTBALL: South Florida COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Florida Gators GOLF: Charlotte Lady TarponsBy BEN BAUGHSPORTS EDITORIt was a book by Pia Nilsson and Lynn Marriott that changed Charlotte Lady Tarpons golfer Becky DavisÂ approach to the sport. The book was called Be a Player and its influence continues to resonate with Davis, shaping the way she approaches each shot. She read the book about a year ago. ÂIt was basically about staying positive or neutral, whether you hit a bad or a good shot,ÂŽ said Davis. ÂYou canÂt let your mind get to you.ÂŽ ItÂs difficult to imagine how much better Davis would be, if the 18-yearold had made those adjustments earlier in her career. ÂShe hit the ground running her freshman year, and that was the first year we won Counties,ÂŽ said Josh Hoffart, Charlotte Lady Tarpons girlsÂ golf coach. ÂShe was the medalist in all three of those events. It was one of her big goals. She was hoping to get that fourth year in a row medalist.ÂŽ However, in 2018, she placed second, missing by a stroke, but still earning All-County status for her efforts. But when the season started there was a defined objective for Davis, qualifying for States, a goal she achieved through hard work, a competitive spirit and an intense desire to perform consistently at the elite level, something she has done throughout her interscholastic career. ÂAt the end of last season, as we were driving away from the Regional tournament, we had dinner and talked about next year, and how it was going to be different, so it was literally a year in the making,ÂŽ said Hoffart. ÂShe had turned a big corner last season, as she had mentioned. The mental approach to the game was the last barrier needed to break through to jump into the 70s.ÂŽ Davis improved her scoring in 2018, shaving a stroke off her average, going from 79 to 78. Placing an emphasis on her new approach, was a solid foundation that she was able to build upon throughout the season, said Hoffart. Charlotte County played a large role in the way Davis was introduced to the sport. She started by participating in a golf camp, when she was 10-years-old at Deep Creek Golf Club, working with the clubÂs professional Todd Evans, and that experience would serve as the catalyst for her trajectory, sending her down a path that would become a passion. ÂTodd, he was just so nice, and he was so willing to help anybody who wanted it,ÂŽ said Davis. ÂSo, my dad just wanted me to start taking lessons. I fell in love with it after that.ÂŽFocused and driven PHOTO BY BEN BAUGHDavis has been a model of consistency for the Charlotte Lady Tarpons golf team.

King threw touchdown passes of 15, 38, 30, 52 and 27 yards and had scoring runs of 47 and 36 yards. He Â“ nished 28 of 41 passing. The seven total touchdowns set a career high. Marquez Stevenson caught six passes for 106 yards and two touchdowns, Jeremy Singleton had Â“ ve receptions for 125 yards and a touchdown and Courtney Lark caught four passes for 85 yards before exiting early in the fourth quarter with an injury. Houston (7-1, 4-0 American) won its Â“ fth straight, totaling a season-high 684 yards of offense. Johnny Ford rushed for 106 yards and two touchdowns, and Jordan Cronkrite rushed for 73 yards and a touchdown to lead USF (7-1, 3-1), which saw its eight-game winning streak snapped. Blake Barnett Â“ nished 26 of 39 for 263 yards and a touchdown. After a safety on King for intentional grounding in the end zone, USF cut the lead to 28-26 on a 23-yard Â“ eld goal by Coby Weiss with 10:47 remaining in the third quarter, but the Bulls would not get any closer.

Victor Hedman, among the NHLÂs top defensmen, will be out at least a week with an upper body injury. The Norris Trophy winner was injured Friday when he crashed into the boards on a check by Ryan Reaves. Ondrej Palat, meanwhile, is day to day with a lower body injury sustained after blocking a shot in the third period against the Golden Knights. The Lightning plays tonight at Arizona.

New Orleans played without star forward Anthony Davis. He was ruled out shortly before the game because of his sprained right elbow Â„ an injury through which heÂd played in a victory a night earlier over Brooklyn. The Davis-Gobert matchup has been a competitive and compelling one in recent seasons. With Davis out, Gobert had his best game of the young season. HeÂd come in averaging 14.5 points and had not scored more than 19 points in a game this season.

The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3 Golf has also provided Davis with a positive outlet, allowing her to stay in peak physical condition, and she also finds the sport therapeutic. ÂIÂve always been the type of person whoÂs wanted to keep fit,ÂŽ said Davis, whoÂs committed to Savannah State University. ÂI do have some days when IÂm super lazy and donÂt want to do anything. Golf is a fun sport to play, and itÂs hard and people underestimate it. ItÂs also a great way to take out your emotions, if youÂre having a bad day.ÂŽ And although the sport can be stressful, Davis is able to maintain her equanimity in a very unique way. ÂUsually, I get a song stuck in my head, and IÂll go out and continuously sing that song,ÂŽ said Davis. ÂSo, when IÂm not over the top of the ball, I have something to think of, so I donÂt always think about golf because that will mess up your game.ÂŽ Hoffart was able to witness DavisÂ evolution as a golfer up-close, and has seen her development and progression over time. ÂI knew Becky before she started playing for us,ÂŽ said Hoffart. ÂShe was around the golf course, the first couple of years I was coaching. She was a lot younger, and I was just starting to see improvements in her game. She was starting to get that real bug, wanting to be a competitive golfer. We had high hopes and a high ceiling in mind when she entered (high school). She hit the ground running.ÂŽ ItÂs that competitive desire, an intense motivation that comes from within, that has served as the impetus for Davis to reach an elite level. DavisÂ work ethic and indefatigable nature on the golf course have made an impact thatÂs palpable, not only with her ability to achieve optimal results, but itÂs been a positive influence on others. ÂShe has brought a lot to the team, not just her scores, but her approach to the game, pushing some of the other girls to try to improve themselves, bringing a competitive aspect to the program,ÂŽ said Hoffart. ÂIt certainly helped pay off for all of us. ThereÂs a lot of things IÂve learned from just being around her and seeing the way she approaches her shots. ItÂs been fun and a true pleasure and a blessing to have her out here.ÂŽ Davis has worked consistently to improve her game, whether it be driving distance and accuracy, sand saves, greens in regulation, putting; all of those variables have made a marked difference in her scoring average. ÂI would say my short game was really good this year; I did have some moments where I didnÂt shine, but thatÂs golf,ÂŽ said Davis. ÂYou canÂt really do anything about that, but my long game has always been good. My driving, my driver off the tee isnÂt as good as I would like for it to be. My short game has improved from last season. IÂve missed a lot of fairways, but I usually make it up.ÂŽ Renowned for her consistency, DavisÂ competitiveness is evident and her desire to win is palpable. ÂAt county and districts, I missed medalist by one stroke, and that killed me, losing by one stroke,ÂŽ said Davis. ÂI would rather lose by 15 than one. I would rather think about all the putts or little chips I couldÂve done better.ÂŽ Davis and Hoffart, have a very close relationship, much like daughter and father, and that has played a role in her trajectory. ÂAt regionals, my emotions were frantic because on the second to last hole to play, I was four strokes behind the girl I needed to beat, if I wanted to make it to States,ÂŽ said Davis. ÂSo, coach came up to me, and he was like, ÂYou canÂt give up because you have to play through all 18 holes.Â He was right because the girl blew up on the second to last hole, and I had birdied. So, I gained my lead back. I ended up making states. When I figured that out, all my emotions just came out. I started crying. It was so overwhelming. I worked so hard for this moment, and it finally proved that the golf Gods were on my side.ÂŽ States will offer its own series of challenges as Davis will be pitted against FloridaÂs best high school golfers. The tournament, 36 holes, will be Nov. 6-7 at the Mission Inn Resort and Club in Howey-in-the-Hills. Davis remains humble and grounded, realizing the challenges associated with the upcoming tournament. She knows sheÂll be playing against the course and not the other golfers. ÂIÂm not expecting to win my class,ÂŽ said Davis. ÂItÂs nerve wracking. I have expectations for myself, and my expectation was just to make it. IÂm not saying thatÂs good enough. I achieved my goal. My objective is to shoot in the 70s both days.ÂŽ PHOTO BY BEN BAUGHDavis and tarpons girls golf coach Josh Hoart, have had a daughter-father type of relationship.

COLLEGE SWIMMING: Lady Manta RaysLady Manta Rays excelling intercollegiately By BEN BAUGHSPORTS EDITORThe Charlotte Tarpons are poised to be a force on the hardwood this fall. Coach Tom Massolio, a former Tarpons player, is entering his 22nd year at Charlotte High School, and his impressive resume includes 10 20-win seasons. A deep roster is redolent of another successful season. Players are committed to this season, already preparing for this fall and winterÂs demanding schedule, by spending time in the weight room and running to stay in peak condition. They had the opportunity this summer to participate in several AAU events, said Massolio. The Â“nal roster for the upcoming season hasnÂt been set. ÂThe last couple of months weÂve been able to do that,ÂŽ said Massolio. ÂSo, that was kind of neat, even though we donÂt have our full team. We were able to see guys in a different atmosphere. ItÂs been good for us.ÂŽ An experienced roster will be a key variable as the season goes forward, and Massolio has to look no further than the seniors on his team, three of the four seniors have been part of the varsity program for the past three years, Ahmad Johnson, Makai Reeves and Kenny Scribner. The Tarpons also have Juniors Faustin Phanor and Tyrik Gainer and Sophomore Tre Carroll. ItÂs that depth that makes the Tarpons formidable. ÂWe have quality minutes coming back for us,ÂŽ said Massolio. ÂThat makes it a lot easier transitioning coming into the upcoming season. When you have guys that know whatÂs expected of them, have been in the battles and know what we want as a team, itÂs going to be very beneÂ“cial. Experience is always good.ÂŽ The Tarpons open practice on Nov. 5, and they start the season with the Classic, two weeks later on Nov. 19. A demanding schedule starts with the two Classic games, with a calendar that features a full slate going forward from Nov. 29, said Massolio. ÂDecember is crazy for us,ÂŽ said Massolio. ÂWe have a lot of games in December, but with the experience that we have coming back, and those kids who put in the quality time this summer with us, I feel pretty conÂ“dent about what weÂre going to do with what we have going on.ÂŽ However, itÂs those opportunities that are part of this seasonÂs schedule, where the Tarpons will be taking part in a number of tournaments on the road including playing in Tennessee and the prestigious City of Palms Tournament in Fort Myers, that provide motivation and an enthusiasm thatÂs palpable. ÂThe biggest thing I try to instill in kids, and if someone had a formula for this theyÂd be a millionaire,ÂŽ said Massolio. ÂYou just donÂt want kids to regret what theyÂve done. The opportunity to practice, to play, to experience the things weÂre going to experience, and those are the things that you just canÂt get back. Every day we step out on the court and do something, we canÂt get it back. Put forth the effort, put forth the time to get better. Every person I know, I donÂt care how much youÂve done, if you want to do something, go out and do it.ÂŽ HIGH SCHOOL: BasketballTarpons ready for basketball season Tuesday Volleyball Venice Â„ Regional semiÂ“nals vs. Lakewood Ranch, 7 p.m. Port Charlotte vs. Charlotte, 7 p.m. Wednesday Diving Lemon Bay Â„ District meet at Lely High School, 3:30 p.m. LOCAL SPORTS CALENDAR 36-yard touchdown run to give Houston a 35-26 lead with 8:25 remaining in the third.

King found Raelon Singleton for a 27-yard touchdown pass with eight minutes left to up the lead to 21.The takeawayUSF: The Bulls rebounded from another sluggish start to tie the game twice in the second quarter but were unable to stop King. USF rushed for 176 yards in the Â“rst half, but were held to 28 yards in the second half. Houston: The CougarsÂ offense led by King was able to beat USF both in the air and on the ground.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018 GOLF: HSBC ChampionsSHANGHAI (AP) Â„ Tony Finau struggled for so much of Saturday in the HSBC Champions that he was hopeful of a strong Â“nish to carry some momentum into the Â“nal round. He got much more than he imagined. Finau closed with three straight birdies for a 2-under 70 and kept his three-shot lead because of a late collapse by Justin Rose, who played the Â“nal two holes in Â“ve more shots than Finau required. ÂThere was no need to panic,ÂŽ Finau said. ÂJust play some good golf coming down the stretch, and I was able to do that.ÂŽ Finau was at 13-under 203 and led by three over Justin Rose, Masters champion Patrick Reed and Xander Schauffele. Finau was on the verge of falling three shots behind on the 16th hole after Rose had pitched to within 3 feet for a birdie, and Finau hit wedge that came up well short. He rolled in a 20-foot birdie putt from off the green to stay within two shots, hit a tee shot that rolled to within 18 inches of the cup for a short birdie on the par-3 17th, and then holed a 12-foot birdie putt on the 18th. Rose wasted a great round with a sloppy Â“nish and had to settle for a 70. He was two shots ahead going to the 17th when his tee shot went off the side of a hill and into a hazard, leading to double bogey. Then, his 4-iron to the par-5 18th was too far right and tumbled down the hill and into the water. He had a chance to save par until missing a 4-foot putt. ÂThree back going into tomorrow, which is not exactly how it looked like it was going to be with a couple holes to play,ÂŽ Rose said. ÂThere are three guys at 10 under who are all going to be chasing pretty hard, but nothing to lose tomorrow. ItÂs going to take a good round. IÂm playing well, feeling good. Just got to put that last couple holes behind me and come out a little bit angry tomorrow.ÂŽ Reed didnÂt make a par over the last six holes, with four birdies and two bogeys. He missed a 15foot eagle chance on the reachable par-4 16th, and then peeled his tee shot to the right down the slope into the hazard on the 17th to make bogey. A short birdie on the 18th gave him a 70. But the real collapse came from Rose, who had led since a short birdie on the seventh hole and appeared to be in complete control of his game. And then it was gone. His double bogey on the 17th hole sent him from a two-shot lead to a one-shot deÂ“cit, and then he compounded it with another mistake on the 18th. Rose played the Â“nal two holes at Sheshan International in 11 shots compared to FinauÂs six. Schauffele rolled in a long birdie putt on the 16th and momentum until his second shot went into the water on the 18th, though he scrambled for par for a 69. Andrew Putnam, playing in his Â“rst World Golf Championship, had a 67 and was Â“ve shots behind, along with Tommy Fleetwood (72). Fleetwood was two shots behind until he chopped up the par-5 14th hole, three-putting from 12 feet for a triple bogey. Rory McIlroy also had an 8 on the 14th hole as he continued a big slide with a 75, leaving him 21 shots behind Finau. It not only was the second triple bogey this week for McIlroy, he has had Â“ve scores of 6 or higher on his card this week. Brooks Koepka, in his debut at No. 1 in the world, had a 71 and was 14 shots behind. FinauÂs only victory was in 2016 at the Puerto Rico Open, an event held opposite the Match Play in Texas. He had a three-shot lead going into the weekend, which was gone when he missed a short par putt on the Â“fth hole and failed to convert a 5-foot birdie putt on No. 7 as Rose was making his move. The 29-year-old American took only four putts over the last four holes, starting with a tough up-and-down from a bunker behind the 15th green that barely reached the fringe and trickled down to about 4 feet. By the end of the round, everything was going his way. Not only did he hit a Â”awless tee shot into short range on the 17th, he got away with a poor tee shot into a bunker on the 18th and a shot that left him a lot farther from the green than he wanted. No matter. He made the putt and was on the verge of getting a victory to go with his consistent play this year. ÂIÂm looking forward to tomorrow,ÂŽ Finau said. ÂIÂve got a world-class Â“eld chasing after me. This is the position you want to be in and IÂll be looking to close out my Â“rst tournament in this position, which is exciting for me. ... IÂm going to have fun no matter the outcome and hopefully make a lot of birdies and have those guys have to do something special tomorrow to beat me.ÂŽLate rally lets Tony Finau keep 3-shot lead in HSBC AP PHOTOSTony Finau of the United States tees o during round three of the HSBC Champions golf tournament held at the Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai.

TAOYUAN CITY, Taiwan (AP) Â„ Nelly Korda shot a 3-under 69 to share the lead with Wei-Ling Hsu after three rounds of the LPGA Taiwan Championship on Saturday. Playing in front of a home crowd, Hsu finished with an even-72 on Saturday after shooting 68 and 67 in the first two rounds. Korda and Hsu have a total of 9-under 207 and both will be looking for their first LPGA titles in SundayÂs final round at the Ta Shee Golf and Country Club. ÂI think IÂll definitely be a little nervous,ÂŽ Korda said of SundayÂs round. ÂAnyone who is in contention on a Sunday will obviously feel those types of feelings. But IÂll also be excited and just happy to be in that position.ÂŽ Korda will be playing in the final round with Hsu, who she knows will be the crowd favorite. ÂWei-Ling was playing right behind me (today), but you heard a couple roars,ÂŽ she said. ÂI think itÂs awesome to see how much they support womenÂs golf out here and just how they support a home player is really great. ItÂs really nice to see.ÂŽ Korda, the sister of fellow LPGA player Jessica Korda, dropped a shot on No. 13 but birdied two of the last five holes to move into a tie atop the leaderboard. Five players are within two shots of the leaders: Jin Young Ko (69), Bronte Law (69), Megan Khang (70), Lydia Ko (72) and Jodi Ewart Shadoff (73). ÂThereÂs a lot of girls stacked up on the leaderboard,ÂŽ Korda said. ÂSo you know, IÂm just going to be one of those girls thatÂs fighting for it.Â GOLF: LPGA Taiwan ChampionshipNelly Korda shoots 69 to share 3rd-round lead in Taiwan By ANTHONY PEREZTAMPA BAY TIMESLOS ANGELES Â„ The RaysÂ way is spreading. The number of teams that began using an opener to start games, and even more that began analyzing and considering it, is the highest proÂ“le and most impactful example. Literally game-changing. Then there was last weekÂs double play, the hiring of coaches Rocco Baldelli (by the Twins) and Charlie Montoyo (Blue Jays) as managers Â„ the most recent example of teams hoping to tap into their success, in process and performance, a different way. Similarly, the interest by the Mets and Giants in senior vice president Chaim Bloom for a general manager job. To be clear, Baldelli and Montoyo certainly got hired on their merits, and they might have gotten the exact same opportunities, or even better, had they been working elsewhere. But there is deÂ“nitely a sense of curiosity in the industry about how the Rays do things Â„ and clearly not everything they think of and try works out Â„ and hiring from their staff is one way to access some of those processes. Even though they had been let go, former pitching coach Jim Hickey (who went to the Cubs) and hitting coach Derek Shelton (Blue Jays, Twins) were debriefed as well. So, apparently, is trading for their players, as RHP Nathan Eovaldi found out when he got shipped to Boston in late July. ÂWhen I got traded over here, that was some of the questions I was asked, ÂWhy are the Rays so good? What are they doing over there to be so successful?Â Â Eovaldi said before his epic World Series performance Friday night. ÂAnd it starts with the management. (Manager Kevin) Cash does a really good job over there, and Charlie got hired with Toronto and Rocco is with the Twins now. ÂWhen I was hurt in 2017, when I was rehabbing down there (and spending games) in the dugout, IÂm picking the playersÂ minds, but IÂm also picking the coachesÂ minds. And I learned a lot from Rocco just about the small things. ÂSo just picking his mind and learning the little things about the game from him. I feel like a lot of the teams, when you have good success, the coaches end up going somewhere else.ÂÂ Red Sox manager Alex Cora had praise for both Baldelli, whom he credited for improvement in the RaysÂ running game, and Montoyo, a fellow Puerto Rican, for being Âa great baseball man.ÂÂ The Rays are now tasked with replacing two coaches, which comes as the Jays and Twins along with the Angels and Reds, who also just hired managers, are also looking to do so. (And the Rangers and Orioles eventually will.) That process includes coming up with a list of names and considering restructuring since BaldelliÂs Â“eld coordinator position was created to match his skills. The Rays like to promote from within, but it wouldnÂt be a surprise for them to go outside for at least one new coach. Between the two hires, they need at a native Spanish speaker and an inÂ“eld expert. As for the bench coach, MontoyoÂs vast game managing experience (in the minors) and quick thinking/anticipating seemed good assets for Cash, and may be logical prerequisites. Rays rumblings ThereÂs nothing ofÂ“cial, but the usual Mets sieve-like news leaks sure make it appear they are picking agent Brodie Van Wagenen for the GM job over Bloom. As disappointed as Bloom (also a candidate for the Giants job) might be, this is probably a good thing long term. Âƒ LHP Blake Snell joined Boston LHP Chris Sale and Houston RHP Justin Verlander as Â“nalists for the players-voted AL outstanding pitcher award to be announced Nov. 27. (Cy Young news comes Nov. 14.) Âƒ. Not sure there was an obvious candidate Â„ maybe Joey Wendle at second base? Â„ but it sure seemed odd as good as the Rays defense was to have no Gold Glove Â“nalists. Âƒ Ex-Ray Corey Dickerson is a Â“nalist for the NL leftÂ“eld award. Âƒ With information gathering complete, the next procedural step in the grievance Â“led by the union against the Rays (and three other teams) over usage of revenue sharing funds would be talks to either settle or go to a hearing before an arbiter. Âƒ The annual Fan Fest is slated for Feb. 9. Âƒ The downtown Tampa Con Agra plant site that Lightning owner Jeff Vinik just bought had been of interest to the Rays for a stadium, but Tampa ofÂ“cials told them in 2016 it likely wouldnÂt be available. Hmm. Success, innovation begat departures MLB: Tampa Bay Rays

Page 6 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018By MATT BAKERTAMPA BAY TIMESOCALA Â„ Al and Judy Dunlap have assembled a family compound over the years. ThereÂs the lake house, and the farm house, and the main home, all surrounded by horse pastures and guarded by an army of animal statues. Soon enough, the Florida State football program will feel the same way Â„ like one giant Dunlap complex. The SeminolesÂ practice Â“elds, indoor practice facility and champions club seating area are all named after this married couple of 50 years. When FSUÂs football-only facility opens in 2021, the DunlapsÂ name will be on it, too, thanks to their $20 million pledge. The Seminoles announced that donation before SaturdayÂs Clemson game as part of their $100 million fundraising campaign. Add in their previous contributions, and the DunlapsÂ donations to the Seminole Boosters top $40 million Â„ all from a Northern couple with no previous ties to the school. The relationship began when Al, a former lightning-rod business executive, was asked to include FSU on his speaking tour twenty-something years ago. ÂThe Â“rst words out of my mouth at FSU were, ÂGeez, you have classrooms. I thought you just had sports facilities,ÂÂŽ said Al, 81. He and Judy learned that FSU had more than football Â“elds, but it needed more, too. ÂI used to always say, ÂI am really concerned about leadership in America,ÂÂŽ Judy said. ÂI must have said it enough times, because they then came and presented us the opportunity to build this student success center.ÂŽ FSU dedicated that Albert J. and Judith A. Dunlap Student Success Center in 2008 to help all students prepare for interviews and learn about leadership and community service. Eventually, their contributions veered toward their mutual interest in sports. Judy was active in athletics growing up in Wisconsin, and AlÂs football success as a kid in New Jersey got him to West Point. But with football and college, Al became a successful, albeit controversial, businessman. He earned the nickname ÂChainsaw AlÂŽ for the way he ruthlessly cut expenses and employees. Many of his stops needed turnarounds. His overhaul of Scott Paper was a success, but his career at Sunbeam ended in a fraud scandal. Now retired, Al said he wanted to get involved in the football facility because it would boost the programÂs efÂ“ciency by placing everything in one, $60 million, 122,000-square-foot complex. ÂItÂs going to put all of their facilities, the football Â“elds, the training, in one area,ÂŽ Al said. The DunlapsÂ donation comes during a down season for the Seminoles, who are in danger of having their NCAA-record 36-year bowl streak snapped. But Al remains optimistic about the SeminolesÂ future under coach Willie Taggart. ÂHeÂs doing a turnaround, and as a guy who turned around nine multi-billion-dollar corporations on three continents, I know what heÂs up against,ÂŽ Al said. ÂI know about the criticism, and I know what it takes. And heÂs going to do it.ÂŽ COLLEGE FOOTBALLOcala couple pledges $20 million for FSU football facility BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) Â„ JÂMar Smith threw for 217 yards and a touchdown and Louisiana Tech beat Florida Atlantic 21-13 on Friday night to snap the OwlsÂ 10-game home winning streak. Louisiana Tech (6-2, 4-1 Conference USA), which is bowl eligible for the Â“fth straight season, scored two touchdowns in the Â“nal three minutes of the Â“rst half for a 14-10 lead. Smith found Teddy Veal in the end zone to extend Louisiana TechÂs lead to 21-13 with 8:27 remaining. FAU appeared to get the ball back with just over two minutes left, but Louisiana TechÂs drive was extended after a 15-yard penalty on the punt. Jaqwis Dancy rushed for 116 yards and one touchdown for Louisiana Tech. Defensive end Jaylon Ferguson broke the C-USA career sack record in the Â“rst half with his 38th. Rafe Peavey made his Â“rst start of the season, replacing seven-game starter Chris Robison, and was 15-of-26 passing with an interception for FAU (3-5, 1-3). Devin Singletary carried it 19 times for 171 yards and one touchdown. Singletary scored on the opening drive for his nation-leading 15th rushing touchdown of the season. HeÂs tied with quarterbacks Eric Crouch and Colin Kaepernick for 11th in FBS history with 59 rushing touchdowns.Louisiana Tech ends FAUÂs 10-game home winning streak 21-13By ANDREW GREIFLOS ANGELES TIMES (TNS)LOS ANGELES Â„ Doc Rivers this week listed all that had happened in his sonÂs life since he was traded this summer. ÂGoing to a new city, Â“nd a new apartment, new baby,ÂŽ the Los Angeles ClippersÂ coach said. ÂThere was a lot of change for him.ÂŽ Austin Rivers is the Â“rst to say that not all change is bad. The Clippers (3-2) and Washington Wizards (1-4) meet Sunday at Staples Center in the Â“rst on-court reunion of the father and son who became the Â“rst in NBA history to share a sideline. They also saw their coach-player relationship become one of the most scrutinized in all of the NBA and a frequent target for complaints of favoritism during 3 1/2 years together. The Clippers dealt Austin Rivers to Washington on June 26 in exchange for center Marcin Gortat. ÂThat was a tough day,ÂŽ Doc Rivers said. ÂIt would have been a lot tougher if it hadnÂt have been for Austin. Austin handled that so well it made me feel good. He talked about, ÂListen, we did something no oneÂs ever done in the history of the game.Â There were some ups and downs to it, but there were more ups than downs and he was very thankful.ÂŽ Thankful, Austin Rivers said this week in the debut episode of his podcast, ÂGo Off,ÂŽ because when his father traded for him in January 2015 he was a Âbelow-average pro trying to Â“gure it out.ÂŽ ÂLetÂs call it for what it is,ÂŽ he said. ÂI played for my father in the NBA, thatÂs crazy. I never thought I would want to do that or actually do it and then it happened.ÂŽ During 243 games with the club the former 10th overall pick in the 2012 draft averaged 11.1 points a game, played well in three playoff appearances and salvaged his career. The 6-foot-4 guard averaged a career-high 15.1 points last season and exercised a $12.6 million player option in June. Five days later while training in Miami with future Wizards teammate John Wall, he received a call from Clippers assistant Sam Cassell warning that a trade was in the works. ÂIÂm sitting there like, ÂWhat? What?ÂÂŽ he said of the chat with one of his position coaches. ÂAnd then like that I get a call. Once Doc and Lawrence (Frank, Clippers president of basketball operations) call itÂs real.ÂŽ Also real was the increasing desire to uncouple his career from that of his father. As the teamÂs president of basketball operations at the time, Doc Rivers drew criticism not only for acquiring his son in a trade in 2015 but extending him a three-year contract worth $35 million one year later. Former Clipper Glen Davis, while complaining about being coached by Doc Rivers in a 2017 Instagram video, also criticized Austin Rivers as a Âbum whoÂs been given the world. Shut up, and just stay under your father.ÂŽ A SportsCenter anchor, Michael Eaves, reported in 2017 that Chris Paul felt Austin was entitled, that Doc Rivers treated him differently and also killed a trade for Carmelo Anthony because it would have shipped out Austin. Both Rivers called the Anthony trade report false. Not everyone who shared a locker room with Doc and Austin Rivers called the dynamic a problem. ÂThereÂs a lot of good things and also things that are like, ÂOK, this is a challenge,ÂÂŽ said Luc Mbah a Moute, who played for the Clippers from 2015-17 and returned this summer after one season with Houston. ÂI think they handled it well. I think they were successful at it. I think Austin is a good player and he went out and competed every night. I think Doc at least had the right intentions to make the right decisions when I was on the team. Â(Austin) was a big part of what we were doing and I think the reason why we were not successful or why we were successful, itÂs not because of that relationship.ÂŽ Said Clippers forward Danilo Gallinari, who joined the organization last season: ÂAustin had a great year for us last year. YouÂd think that it could be a weird situation or a strange situation, but it was Â“ne.ÂŽ Austin Rivers said he communicated to Cassell and his father last season his uncertainty whether to re-sign as a free agent in 2019. If he played well elsewhere, he believed, there would be Âno more daddy-son talk.ÂŽ ÂThis is no BS, no Âƒ I love the Clippers organization, how could I not?ÂŽ Austin Rivers said. ÂI came there as a kid and developed into a man. I came there as an unprofessional and developed into a professional and came in there as an OK player leaving as a starting-level player. So everything I did there I appreciate. ÂBut I felt like my head was hitting a ceiling because I was ultimately playing for my dad and no matter what I did it always came back to that. Âƒ I could score 60, 50, 40, whatever and people would be like, ÂOh, his dadÂs the coach. ÂƒÂ ÂFrom a public standpoint it was rough like, I donÂt know if I want to do this anymore. I would like to go somewhere else and just be free. When I got traded after that a part of me was sad because IÂm leaving my family and my friends and the people I grew there, but part of me was like, this is what IÂve been waiting for.ÂŽ Doc Rivers said he was proud of his sonÂs handling of the attention, which began when he was a top-rated high school player in Florida. Austin was often compared to his father and older brother, Jeremiah, who played at Georgetown and Indiana. ÂI thought what he did the best here was he played the biggest in the biggest moments, which is what you needed him to,ÂŽ Doc Rivers said. ÂThere was a lot of focus on him all the time and that was too bad but thatÂs just life in general. Overall, I really enjoyed coaching him.ÂŽ Come Sunday, heÂll coach against him.Austin Rivers embraces challenge of excelling as a pro without stigma of playing for his father COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Florida Atlantic By RICK STROUDTAMPA BAY TIMESTAMPA Â„You want Jason Licht as your general manager. Let him pick your players. HeÂs absolutely going to crush it. For your fantasy football team. IsnÂt that what the Buccaneers have become? The Bucs have the No. 1 offense in the NFL, averaging 449.5 yards per game. Kansas City? The Rams? Puh-leeze. The Bucs have the leagueÂs best passing offense, averaging 376.8 yards per game. It doesnÂt seem to matter who plays quarterback, either. Ryan Fitzpatrick set an NFL record with three straight games of more than 400 yards passing and at least three touchdowns. Even that wasnÂt enough to keep him from losing his job to Jameis Winston when his threegame suspension ended. Credit Licht for providing coach Dirk Koetter the kind of skill players that any offensive-minded coach would love. Mike Evans. DeSean Jackson. O.J. Howard. Cameron Brate. Adam Humphries. Chris Godwin. ÂYouÂve got Â“ve guys with over 20 catches and everybody has touchdowns and produce vertically down the Â“eld,ÂÂ said Bengals coach Marvin Lewis. ÂSo yeah, theyÂre doing a great job spreading the football around and guys are taking advantage of their opportunities.ÂÂ In fact, the Bucs are on pace to produce an astonishing 7,192 total yards of offense. That would put them within striking distance of the Greatest Show of Turf, the St. Louis Rams in 2000, when they compiled an NFL record 7,335 yards. (Since broken by the 2011 Saints at 7,474). ÂI remember. Kurt Warner, Marshall Faulk, Torry Holt, Issac Bruce,ÂÂ Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston said reeling off the play-makers for the Rams. ÂI say every week itÂs a blessing to have the people we have on this team. Really at every level of this offense, starting with the offensive line, in the backÂ“eld and guys outside on the perimeter. ThatÂs a credit to the guys upstairs, Jason Licht. ItÂs a blessing to be a quarterback in this type of offense and to have those types of weapons.ÂÂ For years and years, the only identity the Bucs had was defense. From Lee Roy Selmon to Derrick Brooks and Warren Sapp. And what happened? They lost 9-0 to the Rams in the NFC Championship game to end the Â79 season. Twenty years later, Tony DungyÂs team led the Greatest Show of Turf 6-5 and were 4:44 from the Super Bowl when the RamsÂ Kurt Warner found Ricky Proehl for a touchdown. Even the BucsÂ Super Bowl XXXVII championship team was driven by D. Five interceptions spearheaded the 48-21 victory over the Raiders. But now? The Bucs are a fantasy fanaticÂs dream. The Bucs should Â“nish in the top 10 in the NFL in total yards for the third time in four seasons since Koetter arrived. Prior to that, they did it three other times in franchise history. Evans has become among the most productive receivers. He is 10th in the NFL with 591 yards on 40 receptions, a 98.5 average, with three touchdowns. ÂI think he had a great off-season, a great training camp,ÂÂ offensive coordinator Todd Monken said. ÂHeÂs playing at a very high level. Playing fast. He really is concentrating on yards after catch. HeÂs doing a better job there. His releases. We try to move him around a little bit, but thereÂs such comfort in him in the positions we put him. So having the weapons we have, we never look at it as a mismatch for us.ÂÂ Jackson got off to an incredibly hot start. He still leads the NFL with a 22.9 yard average. Jaccpot was putting up 106 receiving yards per game until Winston returned. In standard league scoring for fantasy football, heÂs scoring about 13 points per game. Evans is just behind him at 12.3 per game. Both Fitzpatrick (26.25 points) and Winston (22) are pretty productive. By comparison, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is at the top of the food chain at 28 points per game. Howard (7.8) and Brate (5.4) are more than serviceable tight ends. Where the Greatest Show on Turf comparison breaks down is on several levels. Start with the fact that the Bucs have nobody who resembles Marshall Faulk Â„ or the Rams Todd Gurley for that matter. The Bucs are 31st in rushing offense, averaging 85.5 per game. Still, when you can remember Sapp pleading to the Bucs offense to Âjust give me 17 (points),ÂÂ watching the Bucs average 27.8 points per game is, well, kind of a Tampa Bay fanÂs fantasy. Winston, who says he never played fantasy football when he was at Florida State, insists the only points heÂs interested in are the ones on the scoreboard. ÂOne thing about the Greatest Show on Turf, they went to the playoffs,ÂŽ Winston said. ÂThey won the Super Bowl. Those are the aspirations we have as a team.ÂŽ Or as Koetter says, ÂYards and stats are nice to look back on later. But right now youÂve got to get one more point than the other team. Yards have to transfer to points, points have to transfer to wins. ThatÂs really the only way you can look at it right now.ÂÂ NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers NBAItÂs not a fantasy, Tampa Bay has the NFLÂs No. 1 offense
The Sun | Sunday, October 28, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7NO. 8 OKLAHOMA 51, KANSAS STATE 14NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Â„ Kyler Murray passed for 352 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another score to help Oklahoma beat Kansas State. The Sooners (7-1, 4-1 Big 12) rolled up a season-high 702 total yards and only punted once, and that was in the fourth quarter after Murray was done for the day. CeeDee Lamb caught four passes for a career-high 160 yards and two touchdowns, and Kennedy Brooks ran for 94 yards and two scores. The Sooners won their second straight since losing to Texas. Oklahoma held Kansas State (3-4, 1-4) to 245 yards. Alex Barnes, who entered the game as the Big 12Âs leading rusher, was limited to 28 yards on 13 carries. The Sooners gained 209 yards in the first quarter and took a 17-0 lead. Murray threw two touchdown passes in the period, including an 82-yard connection with Lamb.NO. 12 KENTUCKY 15, MISSOURI 14COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) Â„ Terry Wilson threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to C.J. Conrad on the final play to lift Kentucky past Missouri. Kentucky took over on its own 19 with 1:24 left. With 4 seconds left, Wilson threw toward Ahmad Wagner in the back left corner of the end zone. Wagner caught the ball out of bounds, but Missouri cornerback DeMarkus Acy was called for pass interference, giving Kentucky an untimed down that it turned into the winning score. Lynn Bowden Jr. returned a punt 67 yards for a touchdown with 5:18 left to pull the Wildcats (7-1, 5-1 Southeastern Conference) to 14-9. Kentucky held Missouri (4-4, 0-4) without a first down on eight second-half possessions. Wilson, who was replaced by backup Gunnar Hoak for part of the second half, completed 22 of 31 passes for 267 yards. Bowden had 13 catches for 166 yards. Benny Snell, who entered the game as the nationÂs fourth-leading rusher, gained just 67 yards on 19 carries.CALIFORNIA 12, NO. 15 WASHINGTON 10BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) Â„ Linebacker Evan Weaver scored on a 36yard interception return in the third quarter after Washington made a change at quarterback, and California overcome a sluggish day offensively. The Golden Bears (5-3, 2-3 Pac-12) had only 245 yards and were limited to two field goals, but Weaver and the defense repeatedly bailed out the struggling offense while dealing a serious blow to WashingtonÂs hopes of a second Pac-12 title in three seasons. The Huskies (6-3, 4-2) entered the day with a half-game lead over No. 14 Washington State and No. 24 Stanford but fell to second place despite not allowing an offensive touchdown. Washington starting quarterback Jake Browning threw his 90th career touchdown pass in the first quarter but was benched late in the third after the Huskies went threeand-out on their second drive of the second half. Redshirt freshman Jake Haener replaced Browning and threw an incompletion on his first pass before Weaver picked off the pass on a third-and-8 play. Browning returned after two series. He completed 11 of 21 passes for 148 yards.NO. 17 PENN STATE 30, NO. 18 IOWA 24STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) Â„ Nick Scott intercepted a pass to thwart Iowa at the Penn State 2 with 3:18 left and the Nittany Lions held on to avoid a third straight home loss. Penn State (6-2, 3-2 Big Ten) needed one last defensive stand to hold off Iowa (6-2, 3-2), which got to the Nittany Lions 44 with less than a minute left. On fourth-and-10 with 7 seconds left, Penn StateÂs pass rush swarmed Nate Stanley, who flipped backward to offensive tackle Tristan Wirfs. The 300-pounder rumbled 15 yards before being dragged down with no time left. It was a fitting end to an odd game with little sustained offense. Iowa scored on two safeties and a touchdown pass by punter Colten Rastetter to defensive tackle Sam Brincks on a faked field goal in the first half. Penn State played three series in the second quarter without starting quarterback Trace McSorley.NORTHWESTERN 31, NO. 20 WISCONSIN 17EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) Â„ Clayton Thorson ran for two touchdowns and threw a scoring pass to help Northwestern beat Wisconsin. The first-place Wildcats (5-3, 5-1) solidified themselves as contenders for the Big Ten West championship while gaining some revenge for a loss at Camp Randall Stadium early last season. With quarterback Alex Hornibrook sidelined by a concussion and the defense without several injured starters, it was a rough afternoon for Wisconsin (5-3, 3-2).

(AP) Â„ Kyle BuschÂs road to the championship round was made a little bit easier when he won the pole at Martinsville Speedway. Busch turned a lap at 96.254 mph around the Virginia paperclip to earn the top starting spot in SundayÂs race, the Â“rst of the third round of NASCARÂs playoffs. Eight drivers remain eligible for the title, but only four will advance to the season Â“nale shootout. A win in any of the three races in this round of the playoffs earns a driver an automatic berth. Busch won Martinsville last year to earn a spot at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and heÂs been so good all year as a member of NASCARÂs so-called ÂBig 3ÂŽ that advancing to the Â“nale is almost a given. He said Saturday after qualifying that the pressure has been amped considerably. ÂAnytime youÂre under pressure or under the amount of stress as what this round is to get yourself into the Â“nal four for Homestead, anytime you can kind of take a step back and have a clear head is a good time,ÂŽ Busch said. ÂThe pressure that sets in over these next two weeks if youÂre behind the cutoff line ... that can certainly wear on your during the week. You try to have other things to do to kind of take your mind off of it a little bit. This is what we live, eat, breath, sleep, everything. ItÂs always on our mind.ÂŽ The ofÂ“cial lineup is not set until after Sunday morningÂs inspection, and drivers whose cars fail inspection will start from the rear. Pit selection will occur after cars are inspected, and Busch is eager to claim the Â“rst stall on pit road to ease his exits during the race. ÂObviously starting position is important, but the opportunity is really to have that pit box,ÂŽ Busch said. ÂThat number one pit box will hopefully do us good and we can have a good day, run up front much of the day and Â“nish there.ÂŽ Clint Bowyer qualiÂ“ed second in a Ford from Stewart-Haas Racing, which has all four of its drivers in the Â“eld of eight. SHR teammate Aric Almirola qualiÂ“ed Â“fth, Kurt Busch was seventh and Kevin Harvick 13th. Chase Elliott was the lowest-qualifying playoff driver at 21st. Winner of two of the last three races, Elliott was terse after his poor qualifying effort. Asked what he needed to do better in qualifying, Elliott answered: Âto go a lot faster.ÂŽ And his hopes for the start of SundayÂs race because heÂs starting mid-pack?

BUSINESS/CLASSIFIEDS/ REAL ESTATE AVON PARK Â• LAKE PLACID Â• SEBRINGSECTION DSunday, October 28, 2018US new-home sales slump for 4th straight monthBy JOSH BOAKAP ECONOMICS WRITERWASHINGTON Â„ Sales of new U.S. homes plunged 5.5 percent in September, the fourth straight monthly drop as the housing market cools with mortgage rates rising. The Commerce Department said Wednesday that newly built homes sold at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 553,000 last month. New-home sales in August were downwardly revised, erasing the previously reported gain. The annual rate of home sales has dropped 15.3 percent since May, eliminating much of the strength in sales from the first five months of 2018. Builders had assumed that a stronger economy would push up sales, yet a greater share of new construction is going unpurchased. There is 7.1 monthsÂ supply of new homes on the market, the highest level since March 2011 when the real estate bust caused by subprime mortgages was still weighing on the economy. Housing has found itself in a downturn in recent months despite the unemployment rate falling to a nearly half-century low of 3.7 percent. The National Association of Realtors said last week that existing-home sales Â„ the largest share of the market Â„ had plummeted 3.4 percent in September to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.15 million. The major culprit for the decline in homebuying appears to be higher borrowing costs. Average 30-year mortgage rates have climbed to 4.85 percent from 3.88 percent a year ago, according to mortgage buyer Freddie Mac. Increasing interest rates can make homeowners less likely to upgrade to a new property if it requires them to spend more each month on repaying a home loan. The new-home sales report is volatile on a monthly basis. But the declines in September were sharpest in the Northeast and West, the two most expensive housing markets. Newhome sales slipped in the couth and increased in the Midwest. The average sales price has slumped 0.6 percent from a year ago to $377,200.

This private ticketed event will take place from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, and the Â“rst 100 customers in each store will receive a Belk gift card ranging from $5 to $1,500. Since 2012, the Belk Charity Sale has contributed more than $50 million in donations to over 6,000 nonproÂ“ts across the South. To access the private shopping event, customers must purchase a $5 ticket and that $5 ticket price will be deducted from their total purchase when they return to shop on Nov. 3. Tickets can be obtained from partnering charities, and 100 percent of proceeds will stay with that organization. Tickets can also be purchased directly from Belk, and those proceeds will be divided among that storeÂs partner charities. All stores across BelkÂs 16-state footprint are participating in the Fall Charity Sale, each partnering with organizations in the communities they call home. Flight training school open in SebringBy Special to Highlands News-SunSEBRING Â„ Sebring Flight Academy, formerly known as Leading Edge Flight Training School, is ready and open for business with a brand new TAA IFR glass panel equipped Bristell Aircraft along with a Cessna 172. The school, at the Sebring Regional Airport, also offers FAA approved simulator training in the Redbird FMX, a superior-quality, full motion, Advanced Aviation Training Device. ÂThe Sebring airport has so much to offer and now a professional Â”ight school is here,ÂŽ General Manager Brant Howell said. ÂUtilizing modern aircraft, and with housing and Â“nancing available we offer an accelerated program to become a professional pilot that is simply not available at conventional Â”ight schools. ÂItÂs a great time to be involved in aviation, the airlines are hiring, and career opportunities have never been better,ÂŽ Howell said. ÂOur students have the ability to obtain their LSA instructor certiÂ“cates in as little as four months and then be paid while they build time and experience,ÂŽ 4 tax breaks for teachersBy TINA OREMNERDWALLETThe Â”ood of education-related tax advice that seems to crest during back-to-school season often centers on students or their parents. But teachers can score a few tax breaks, too Â„ if they do their homework. Three tax pros share their own lesson plans for cutting teachersÂ tax bills. 1. Educator Expense Deduction WHAT IT IS: A $250 deduction to help recoup out-of-pocket costs for outÂ“tting a classroom, getting training or buying teaching materials. HOW IT WORKS: K-12 teachers can take this deduction regardless of whether they itemize on their taxes or take the standard deduction. TheyÂre not the only ones eligible for this tax break, though. School counselors, principals or aides may also be able to take the educator expenses deduction if they worked at least 900 hours in a qualifying school during the school year, says Tracie Miller-Nobles, a certiÂ“ed public accountant and member of the American Institute of CPAsÂ National CPA Financial Literacy Commission. If your spouse is also a teacher and youÂre Â“ling jointly, you might qualify for a bigger deduction. ÂSometimes individuals donÂt realize that if theyÂre married and both spouses are eligible educators, they actually get $500 for that deduction,ÂŽ she says. 2. Charitable Contribution deductions WHAT IT IS: A tax deduction for donations to charitable organizations, including nonproÂ“t schools. HOW IT WORKS: If the educator expense deduction doesnÂt cover everything a teacher has spent out of pocket for items that end up belonging to the school, teachers might be able to deduct the rest as a charitable contribution, says Lauri Pitcher, a CPA and president and CEO of accounting Â“rm Lucia & Co. in San Bernardino, California. Taking this deduction will require good record-keeping; it may also require working with the principal or other school administrators to get receipts that will substantiate the donations, she says. Also: You have to itemize on your tax return to deduct charitable contributions. So if you plan on taking the standard deduction Â„ which has nearly doubled under the new tax rules Â„ this tactic might not be for you. 3. Lifetime Learning Credit WHAT IT IS: A tax credit Â„ which is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in your tax bill Â„ equal to 20 percent of the Â“rst $10,000 spent on tuition and fees. The maximum credit is $2,000 per return. HOW IT WORKS: The Lifetime Learning credit is available to graduate students, which means it can be a great tax break for teachers who are pursuing a masterÂs degree, says Melinda Nelson, a CPA and partner at accounting Â“rm Henry + Horne in Tempe, Arizona. Teachers who are simply taking classes to improve job skills can also qualify Â„ pursuing a degree isnÂt required. You may qualify for this tax credit if your modiÂ“ed adjusted gross income (MAGI) is $66,000 or less ($132,000 or less if you Â“le jointly). If your MAGI is between $56,000 and $66,000 ($112,000 to $132,000 if you Â“le jointly), you can get a reduced credit. You canÂt get the credit if your MAGI is over $66,000 ($132,000 if Â“ling jointly). 4.

For people who want human help, the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA) is a federal grant program that helps local organizations offer free in-person taxprep services to lowand moderate-income people. HOW THEY WORK: You probably qualify for Free File if your adjusted gross income is under the limit (currently $66,000). Note that even if the software for your federal tax return is free, there might be a fee for your state tax return. Visit the IRSÂs Free File website to check your eligibility and Â“nd the right software package. For VITA, the income limit generally is $54,000; the IRS website also has a VITA directory that can help you Â“nd a program in your area.

www.highlandsnewssun.com October 28, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | D5Tractor Supply raises money for 4-H youthsSPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNSEBRING Â„ Florida 4-H youth will experience valuable hands-on learning opportunities as a result of Tractor SupplyÂs 2018 Paper Clover Campaign, a biannual fundraiser held in partnership with National 4-H Council. Florida Tractor Supply stores collectively raised $59,326 in 2018 through donations made with purchases in store and online. Earlier this month, Florida Tractor Supply customers participated in the Fall Paper Clover event by purchasing paper clovers Â„ the emblem of 4-H Â„ for a donation during checkout at stores nationwide or through purchases made online at TractorSupply.com. From Oct. 3-14, Florida Tractor Supply stores raised $34,787. The Florida funds raised are a portion of the more than $1 million nationwide grand total Â„ marking the most successful fundraiser in Tractor SupplyÂs history. Combined with results from the Spring Paper Clover event held earlier this year, Florida stores raised a total of $59,326. According to Christi Korzekwa, senior vice president of marketing at Tractor Supply Company, there is immense value in supporting 4-H youth and their skills and interests. ÂSupporting todayÂs youth means supporting tomorrowÂs leaders,ÂŽ said Korzekwa. ÂSince 2010, Tractor Supply customers and team members have understood and supported the Paper Clover mission Â„ to help provide vital hands-on learning opportunities and empower more 4-H youth to become leaders in their lives, careers and communities.ÂŽ Fundraising efforts from Tractor SupplyÂs Paper Clover event fund scholarships for numerous state-level 4-H programs nationwide, and every Florida donation beneÂ“ts Florida youth. Scholarships are used for camps and leadership conferences, where attendees learn everything from animal care and woodworking to networking practices and civic responsibility. ÂThanks to our partnership with Tractor Supply Company, its team members and the communities it serves, Paper Clover provides more youth with opportunities to learn-by-doing Â„ something that is vital to the development of their passions and interests,ÂŽ said Jennifer Sirangelo, president and CEO of National 4-H Council. ÂItÂs initiatives like Paper Clover that help empower and inspire youth to handle lifeÂs challenges, contribute to the world around them and ultimately develop into tomorrowÂs leaders,ÂŽ Sirangelo said. The Fall Paper Clover event rounds out the ninth year of the campaign, which generated $1,999,661 in 2018. The companyÂs biannual fundraiser has collectively generated more than $14.9 million in essential funding to date. The Paper Clover campaign will return to Florida Tractor Supply stores next spring.

www.highlandsnewssun.com October 28, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | D7Are you afraid of your college debt?ÂAsk BriannaÂŽ is a column from NerdWallet for 20-somethings or anyone else starting out. IÂm here to help you manage your money, Â“nd a job and pay off student loans Â„ all the real-world stuff no one taught us how to do in college. Send your questions about postgrad life to askbrianna@ nerdwallet.com. Student loans arenÂt scary the way roller coasters are Â„ a quick hit of adrenaline and a silly souvenir photo to capture the moment. No, student loans are scary because they alter the way you see your future. They Â“ll you with dread that youÂll never have a house, a vacation to remember or a secure retirement. ItÂs understandable that you would avoid looking at something that gives you nightmares. But just like exposure therapy can help people who are afraid of snakes, for example, you must face your student loans if you want to free yourself from their grasp. That dread will dissolve once you make a plan to lower your bills and say goodbye to debt. STEP 1: FIND OUT WHERE YOU STAND A Â“fth of those with student debt were behind on their payments in 2017, according to the Federal Reserve. YouÂre far from alone if youÂre overwhelmed. To move beyond your fears, come face to face with what you owe, to whom you owe it and when itÂs due. Go to the National Student Loan Data System click ÂFinancial Aid ReviewÂŽ and create or enter your Federal Student Aid username and password. On the next screen, youÂll see a list of the federal student loans under your name. Click on the number of the loan in the left-most column to bring up details about it. YouÂll see the total amount left to repay and the name and website of the company that collects your bill, known as your servicer. Next, check your credit report for private student loans. You can access one report from each of the three major credit bureaus annually at annualcreditreport. com, or you can use a free online credit reporting service. In the accounts section, student loans will likely be listed as installment loans. Take note of the company that owns the loan and what the balance is. ThatÂs the hard part. And now itÂs over. STEP 2: GET CONTROL OF YOUR BILLS While you must know your overall student loan balance to make a strategic repayment plan, your total monthly bill is the more important number. Not sure how much youÂve been paying to each bank or servicer? Log in to their online portals to Â“nd out. While youÂre there, note the interest rate on your loans, too. At this point, make a list of loans that includes the company you pay, whether the loan is federal or private, the amount you owe per month, the amount you owe overall, and the interest rate. Rank the loans by interest rate, with the highest at the top. This is what youÂre working with. Now, compare your total monthly payment with your take-home pay. Are you earning enough to cover not only your loans, but also the essentials like your housing costs and food? Do you have anything left for retirement or emergency savings? If the answer is ÂnoÂŽ to either or both, cutting your loan bill is your priority now. STEP 3: TAKE ACTION To give yourself more breathing room, you have a few options: Sign up for an income-driven repayment plan. For federal loans, this limits your loan bill to a percentage of your income, and will free up the money you need in other parts of your life. Call your lender. Your ability to pay less toward private loans depends on individual lendersÂ policies. Ask for lower or interest-only payments for a period of time. Avoid extended forbearance. While postponing your payments might sound like a good idea, reserve this for short-term stints Â„ like a month when you have a big medical bill to pay. If you canÂt afford your loans for the foreseeable future, choose a more permanent strategy. If you have a month of expenses or more saved for emergencies and youÂre able to contribute up to the employer match on your 401(k), you can tear into those loans. Pay off the highest-interest loans Â“rst to save the most money. Or reÂ“nance, if you have good credit or a co-signer; you may be able to get a lower interest rate, especially on higher-interest private loans, which will help you pay off loans faster.
