It strikes fear in the hearts of woman of all ages. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it means much more than wearing a pink ribbons, ties or pink socks. Breast cancer awareness it about sharing personal stories about a very intimate subject. Nina Beaudry was brave enough to share her story and urges others to be tested. An RN, BSN and the Assistant Director of Cardiac Services of Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center, Beaudry is also a breast cancer survivor. Despite being busy with a career and family Â„ she and her husband Craig have raised two children Â„ Beaudry says she Â“nds time to get her yearly check up. She does them on her birthday so she can remember them easily. ÂI am a straight arrow,ÂŽ Beaudry said. ÂWe live a healthy lifestyle. I am a nurse and donÂt like to take medicines if I donÂt have to. Living healthy helps with that.ÂŽ In September, 2017 her world was shaken when she received a dreaded diagnosis Â„ she had breast cancer. It was only a week after Hurricane Irma blew through and she was still dealing with the aftermath of the storm when she was diagnosed. BeaudryÂs mammogram was done at the hospital where she works and read by Dr. Mary Gardner. ÂI was shocked when she told me,ÂŽ she said. ÂI have no history of breast cancer on either side of my family.ÂŽ While Beaudry is a proponent for monthly self exams, she said mammograms are a necessary tool for early detection. She said she would not have been able to feel her tumor in a self exam because it was too small. ÂWe found it very, very early; it would only be visible by a mammogram,ÂŽ she said. ÂIt was Beaudry overcomes breast cancer with faith and family CUT ÂN UP STYLING SALON PHOTONina Beaudry after getting 15 inches of hair cut o for ÂChildren For Hair Loss.Â By KIM LEATHERMAN STAFF WRITERLAKE PLACID Â„ Dustin Woods was the Â“rst to throw his hat in the ring when Councilwoman Arlene TuckÂs seat was announced after Tuck sent in her resignation months ago in order to run in for a county commissionerÂs seat. That resignation has become a reality since Tuck won the commissionerÂs seat and will be vacating the Town Council seat on Nov. 12. She will be sworn in for the county seat on Nov. 20. Woods, 33, is the lead pastor at Grace Bible Church in Sebring, where he lived for 10 years. He and his wife of four years, Ansley Stewart, live in Huntley Oaks, a subdivision in Lake Placid. Woods has resided in Lake Placid for the past three years. Woods has served on the Local Planning Association since last November. ÂI am a military brat; so I have lived all over the world,ÂŽ Woods said. ÂI Â“nally moved to Fort Meade in high school. I love small towns. My wife is from Lake Placid and we want to raise our family in a small town.ÂŽ Woods has a masterÂs degree in Business Administration from Warner University. His letter of intent says he feels his academic and executive leadership skills will be an asset to the council. In WoodsÂ opinion, the biggest concern for the Town of Lake Placid is a principle prospective. ÂThe council has to see the value in participating in our community,ÂŽ he said. ÂIt is a matter of preserving the charm and managing its growth.ÂŽ When asked about annexing more businesses into the town to promote growth he said most of the high-trafÂ“c businesses are in the townÂs limits. ÂAll of the main businesses are in town already,ÂŽ he explained. ÂThe grocery stores, banks and restaurants are in the downtown area.ÂŽ He said the town is several years away from letting in the big-box stores like Target and Walmart. In order to promote economic growth in the town, Woods said it goes back to progress and and growth. He explained that there is a balance between losing the charm of a small town while still be productive enough to provide local jobs. ÂI want to support our people,ÂŽ Woods said. ÂWe need to work together to Â“nd more creative ways to help local businesses Â”ourish. The local businesses are the ones that provide a lot of local jobs. I tend to lean on the preservation side, even though I am a little younger. I love to be able to walk into the hardware store and talk with the mayor. Who else gets to do that?ÂŽ Recently, the council came under Â“re for purchasing the former Church of Christ on U.S. 27 as its new Town Hall. Despite a stiff opposition and highly emotionally charged meetings from residents and business owners, the town Woods seeks appointment for LP council seat WOODS By PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERSEBRING Â„ Highlands County commissioners hope to hit all the high points Thursday evening on a sore subject for many: Garbage collection and recycling. The Board of County Commission will host a workshop on the garbage collection service provided by Waste Connections, including recycling both inside and outside local city limits. TheyÂll also touch on the progress of the countyÂs bear-proof garbage can program, and how well those containers are working with Waste ConnectionsÂ automated trucks. The discussions could touch on possible changes to the haulerÂs services. County commissioners Talking trash: Garbage topic of workshopCounty to also discuss recycling, bear-proof containers FLORIDA FISH AND WILDLIFE PHOTOA Florida black bear attempts to bite through the lid of a bear-resistant container. Bear-proof garbage cans will be one topic covered during ThursdayÂs workshop. By PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERSEBRING Â„ Runway Caf might have looked like a meeting of the gingerbread homeowners club on Saturday, but the witches there didnÂt arrive on brooms. They arrived in FAA-approved Â“xedwing aircraft, as do all pilots, especially members of the Ninety-Nines Inc., the international association of womenÂs pilots. Saturday marked the fourth annual Witches Fly-in, a Halloween costume gathering of members from all over Florida, and the Â“rst time they gathered in Sebring. Anne-Marie Houston, past president of the Paradise Coast Ninety-Nines and the founder of the Witches Fly-in, counted 35 pilots at SaturdayÂs event, in 15-20 aircraft. They Â”ew in from Fort Myers, Sarasota, Miami, Daytona and other places to meet at a central location. In the previous three years, they dropped in at Winter Haven Regional Airport. Last year, they went to Bartow Municipal Airport. This was their Â“rst time in Sebring. ÂThis is one of our biggest Â”y-inÂs,ÂŽ said Lisa Hannon, co-president of the Paradise Coast chapter. It built slowly, Houston said. ÂIt took a while to get this many witches to come,ÂŽ Houston said. Club Co-President Jeanne LaFountain said it gets larger and larger each year. ÂEvery year we see more people,ÂŽ LaFountain said. Not everyone came as a witch, and quite a few brought their husbands. One couple came as ÂStar TrekÂŽ StarÂ”eet personnel, she in a yellow uniform and he, courageously, in a red-shirted one.ÂWitchesÂ fly-in for a biteAnnual Ninety-Nines gathering at Sebring Airport PHIL ATTINGER/STAFFWitches and other Halloween characters dine Saturday at Runway Caf during the fourth annual Witches Fly-in, a gathering of all the Florida Ninety-Nines clubs Â„ the association of female pilots started in 1928 and Â“rst presided over by Amelia Earhart.

ItÂs being held at night to accommodate residents who work during the day. Some possible changes or discussions may focus on picking up garbage more often or picking up recycling less often, perhaps by returning to a two-day collection or other schedule, given the loss of markets for recyclables. Options might also include: Upgrading or increasing the number of trucks. Dealing with daily landÂ“ll closures during periods of heavy lightning. Building the operations facility the company planned to have at the landÂ“ll. In addition to garbage collection and recycling, county commissioners will discuss the Rehrig PaciÂ“c bear-proof cans that had trouble opening and dumping with automated trucks in Collier County. Highlands County ofÂ“cials asked Waste Connections this past summer to do more Â“eld tests to see if the cans will perform well. If they have, then they should work well for citizens who have had problems with bears getting into their garbage. The workshop will be held 5:30 p.m. Thursday in the county commission chambers at 600 S. Commerce Ave. in Sebring.GARBAGEFROM PAGE 1A decided to buy the church and the sale is pending. Woods said he would have eventually voted ÂyesÂŽ to purchase the building. He mentioned grants that may defray some of the cost. ÂI wish the church could have been in town,ÂŽ Woods said. ÂWe need the ofÂ“ce space and the town has been looking for a spot for 10 years. Now, Lake Placid [Police] Department can move into the old Town Hall and they will be closer to the schools. I would like them there, in case there was a problem at the schools, they wouldnÂt get an eight-minute delay.ÂŽ Woods said another reason he would have ended up voting for the church is because the property the town was considering building on was in the perfect location for a new Â“rehouse.WOODSFROM PAGE 1A Houston said the costumes are a way of making it fun, especially close to Halloween. ÂI was always into Halloween,ÂŽ Houston said. Starting a statewide costumed Â”y-in in late October seemed like a great way to get together and celebrate the season. The ÂwitchÂŽ name seemed to work, too: Witches are, mythically, the Â“rst women Â”iers. LaFountain said it also serves as a great way to promote aviation in general, especially to young women. The Ninety-Nines Club Â„ www.ninety-nines. org Â„ was founded Nov. 2, 1929, at Curtiss Field in Valley Stream on Long Island, New York. Their web site states all 117 women pilots at the time were invited to assemble for mutual support, the advancement of aviation and to create a central ofÂ“ce to keep Â“les on women in aviation. LaFountain said they got the idea to form the club after meeting one another in the WomenÂs Air Derby, also known as the Powder Puff Derby, where 20 pilots raced from Santa Monica, California, to Cleveland, Ohio. They sent out invitations to all women pilots to join the club and 99 showed up, LaFountain said. The group name honors those charter members, Louise Thaden was elected Secretary, their web site states. In 1931, Amelia Earhart was elected president and the group ofÂ“cially took its name at that time. Membership was immediately opened to other women as they became licensed pilots, the web site states. In recent years, the club has offered membership to women with student pilot certiÂ“cates. Women have been involved in aviation since its earliest days, according to Women in Aviation International, www.wai. org. E. Lillian Todd designed and built aircraft in 1906, and Helen Richey became the Â“rst woman pilot for a U.S. commercial airline in 1934. To date, LaFountain said, female pilots only account for 2 percent of all pilots in general aviation. ÂItÂs growing,ÂŽ LaFountain said. Women in Aviation has an overall percentage of 7.01 percent Â„ 42,694 pilots Â„ which in addition to student, recreational, sport and private pilots, also includes commercial, airline transport, Â”ight instructors and remote pilots. The Ninety-Nines work with schools to promote aviation, something the club is all about, Houston said. For the most part, young students already know quite a bit about aerodynamics and the workings of aircraft before they arrive. ÂWeÂre impressed by what kids know,ÂŽ LaFountain said. ÂTheyÂre not even pilots, yet. TheyÂre so enthusiastic.ÂŽ LaFountain said there is a huge shortage of pilots in the world, and students who want aviation careers can Â“nd them. ÂMy husband is 54 years old and made a career change,ÂŽ Hannon said. Hannon said they offer scholarships to all ages to learn to Â”y. Student pilots have to be 16 years old to Â”y solo, but may take the controls alongside a licensed pilot, as soon as that pilot feels itÂs safe to do so. Online sources list dozens of Â“rsts in juvenile and female aviation. On Aug. 1, 1911, Harriet Quimby, a journalist-turned-aviator, received Aero Club of America license number 37, becoming the Â“rst licensed woman pilot in the United States, according to History.net. More recently, 26-year-old captain Kate McWilliams of British carrier Easyjet has become the youngest commercial airline captain in 2016, CNN.com states. Likewise, Anny Divya of India in June 2017 at age 30 became youngest female captain of a Boeing 777 aircraft in the world, according to Traveler.com. In juvenile aviation, Victoria Louise ÂVickiÂŽ Van Meter (1982-2008) set several Âyoungest pilotÂŽ distance Â”ying records. She Â“rst took control of a plane at age 10, and the following year Â„ Sept. 20, 1993 Â„ she made headlines when she Â”ew from Augusta, Maine, to San Diego, California in a Cessna 172. She became the youngest ÂpilotÂŽ Â„ since she wasnÂt yet licensed Â„ to Â”y east to west across the continental United States and the youngest female pilot to cross in either direction. The next year, she Â”ew a Cessna 210 over the Atlantic Ocean to Scotland. Earhart, in 1932, did her accomplishments in reverse. First she Â”ew solo May 20Â…21 from Newfoundland to Northern Ireland, becoming the Â“rst woman to Â”y across the Atlantic. Then, on Aug. 25 that year, she became the Â“rst woman to complete a non-stop transcontinental Â”ight, from Los Angeles, California, to Newark, New Jersey.WITCHESFROM PAGE 1A Elina Lunin and Suzanne Hyatt, both pilots with the Sarasota chapter of Ninety-Nines Inc., the national association of female pilots, pose for a photo by a friend in their costumes during the fourth annual Witches Fly-in, this time held at Sebring Regional Airport. Organizers say members donÂt have to Â”y in as witches, but Halloween costumes are encouraged. PHIL ATTINGER/STAFFAnne-Marie Houston, standing at right, takes special attention at each annual Witches Fly-in, like the fourth annual event held Saturday at Runway Caf at Sebring Regional Airport. Having a Halloween-themed Â”y-in was her idea, and since the event is a gathering of the Florida Ninety-Nines womenÂs pilots organizations, it made sense, she said: Witches are the original female pilots. adno=3616332-1 Rent-a-Relative, Inc.

Readers may also email Letters to the Editor to firstname.lastname@example.org.Look at the campaign donorsAn excellent way to determine how a political candidate will represent your district is by looking at the donors who are Â“nancially supporting that candidate. Donors obviously give their support when they believe that the candidate will vote for their causes. In 2016, when Pigman ran unopposed, he received 98 percent of his money from groups outside of Highlands County. Only two individuals who reside in Highlands County Â“nancially supported him. Among his supporters were Marathon Oil and Koch Industries, (aka, Americans for Prosperity.) These two corporations alone gave more money than all of the residents of Highlands County combined. Why would they support Pigman? Well, he used his political capital to sponsor bills like House Bill 191, which was the Â“rst major step in attempting to bring fracking to Florida. Pigman claimed in a March 6, 2016 interview with the News-Sun that: ÂOur nation must not be dependent on other countries for energy.ÂŽ Undoubtedly, he would have you believe his Â“nancial support from the oil industry had nothing to do with his actions. So, in 2018, what has changed with PigmanÂs donors? Well, he can now count Chevron as a $1,000 donor, but he no longer has any Â“nancial support from folks in Highlands County. It appears that his two 2016 donors realized what his true motivations are, and these motivations had nothing to do with the improvement of the lives of people in PigmanÂs district. All of PigmanÂs supporters are currently giant corporations and PACs with massive self interests. In stark contrast to Pigman is his opponent, Audrey Asciutto. Ms. Asciutto has received 173 donations for her campaign and all of the donations are essentially from local individuals. She has taken no money from any corporation or PAC. Thus, Ms. Asciutto is not beholden to any special interest group and she will be an all out advocate for District 55. As a leader in the solar effort, we can be sure that tracking will not soon be polluting our drinking water. As a proud mother of three children, we can be sure that every effort will be made to improve our distressed schools. But most importantly, Ms. Asciutto will listen to our needs and seek to improve all of our lives.James Reid SebringDeSantis not good for governorRon DeSantis wants to be our next governor. South Florida has had enormous problems with red tide and toxic algae in the past year, so candidates want voters to think they are concerned. On his website, DeSantis says to stop toxic discharges. Apparently that means to stop releases of water from Lake Okeechobee which are connected with algal blooms on the southwest coast. For years, informed people have known that there is too much phosphorous, from phosphate fertilizer, going into Lake Okeechobee. ThereÂs no sign that DeSantis knows this or that he is willing to deal with it. He wasnÂt friendly to the environment or to workers during his years in the U.S. Congress. In 2016, DeSantis voted to prevent the FPA from enforcing the Agricultural Worker Protection Standard, which protects farm workers from pesticides. Fortunately, that measure failed. In 2017, DeSantis voted to weaken the Clean Water Act and allow pesticides to be dumped into bodies of water, which did pass. He also voted to prevent enforcement of the Department of InteriorÂs Clean Water Rule, important to coal mining areas. This measure passed. DeSantis voted to delay the EPAÂs Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Program, aimed at preventing lead poisoning in homes and elsewhere, in 2016. This measure failed. How is the EPA supposed to enforce anything without money? In 2017, DeSantis voted to slash the EPAÂs budget by $1.9 billion, and this measure passed. No, we donÂt need Ron DeSantis as governor at this crucial time.Dale L. Gillis SebringYOUR VIEW When I got the call from my mother, I put the wheels in motion to be out of the ofÂ“ce for a couple of days, just long enough to drive her to Illinois and return. Mom had back surgery in May. She doesnÂt like to Â”y at all. And, Dad had an appointment with a surgeon scheduled for the next week that he couldnÂt miss. That left me to get her back to our familyÂs hometown. My aunt had passed away in June and I had lost an uncle in July, both in-laws to my mother, but family nonetheless. Nothing was going to keep her from getting home for my cousinÂs funeral. The night before we left, there was no time for television. IÂm not sure that would have even mattered. I took care of as much as I could at work, and then at home. I quickly packed a bag with a few items and went to bed. All with the intention of being back in a few days. The Â“rst day we traveled a little harder than I had intended. We didnÂt head out as early as I expected and a stop for lunch in Lake City resulted in the loss of my motherÂs cell phone, which we didnÂt discover until we were in Alabama. The second day I insisted that we stop more frequently so Mom could get out and stretch. Through it all, she traveled like a trooper. She kept her mind off of things by her frequent calls to family with my phone. Fortunately, the place we had stopped at for lunch had found MomÂs phone and would hold it until my dad could stop by there on his way up the following week. We rolled into my uncleÂs late the second afternoon and what cousins werenÂt there already found their way there within the next 10 minutes or so. We sat in the living room and spilled over into the dining area (with seven cousins and their spouses, you can only imagine) as everyone discussed the events of the past couple of days and what my cousinÂs wife wished for a service. The visitation and service would be the following week, a little later than I had expected. After seeing how difÂ“cult all of this was on my uncle, I felt like I had to stay at least through the service. After all, he is 92 and had said goodbye to his wife of 70 years three months earlier and was now having to put his oldest son to rest. My uncle is a farmer. Television is not a staple in the house; itÂs a source of news and there had been no need to have it on since Mom and I had arrived. Sunday evening I went to my momÂs best friendÂs house to drop a box off for her grandson. While there, I caught a glimpse of this storm called Michael that was expected to hit the panhandle. Of course, it was far enough out that I knew it could do something different. I rushed back to my uncleÂs house and told my mom. The television then came on to see what forecasters were saying. I donÂt have to tell you what the forecast was or what the ending result was. WeÂve seen the horrifying pictures. My return home was delayed so that the hurricane could make its way across the states, whatever its actual path would be. My boyfriend Â”ew to Indianapolis to help me drive back to Florida and IÂm grateful he did. We went through parts of Alabama and Georgia that still had no power days after the storm passed, and it was a route that I wasnÂt accustomed to taking. It was the best route to travel, according to my dad, and I trusted his experience. My few days away turned into a week and a half. I worried about things at home and at work. Not only does the television stay off, but there is no WiFi at my uncleÂs house so my computer was of no use and my cell phone was of little use, except at the end of his driveway. I felt disconnected from the world, and in some sense, I guess I was. It was peaceful when I allowed my nerves to calm down and accept the fact there was nothing I could do about it. I need to learn to do that more often Âƒ and make more plans to disconnect at my uncleÂs farm. I have once again been reminded why itÂs one of my favorite places to be. Romona Washington is executive editor at the Highlands News-Sun. Contact her by email at romona.washington@ highlandsnewssun.comAn unexpected, but peaceful tripAT RANDOMRomona Washington All you have to do is take a look at the splintered homes piled up along littered roads in FloridaÂs Panhandle to realize the building codes there were no match for Hurricane Michael. And, if you need further proof, just look at the one home in Mexico City, Florida whose owners embraced a just-in-case mindset and exceeded building codes. That home stands amidst debris and foundations with no structures remaining. It is a testament to the idea that homes can withstand the strongest hurricanes Â„ if built to higher standards. That is a hard lesson we must learn from Hurricane Michael and its 155-mph winds. Florida is a hodge-podge of building codes. They were drawn up according to historic statistics on where hurricanes are most likely to hit. While some people would argue that makes sense, it seems little more than a guessing game to us. Florida is one of the countryÂs most likely targets for hurricanes. ItÂs not unusual in late summer to turn on TV and see a cone on a weather map with the Panhandle or the Keys right in the middle. The Â“rst serious attempt to strengthen the stateÂs buildings codes came in 1992 after Hurricane Andrew slammed South Florida. The result was some of the most stringent building codes in the nation in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. New homes there must be built to withstand 175 mph winds. Unfortunately, state ofÂ“cials stopped there. Other areas have codes that require homes to be built to withstand wind speeds ranging from 120 to 150 mph. In a National Public Radio story, structural engineer John Pistorino, who was involved in determining the stateÂs codes, said FloridaÂs guidelines for building codes are based on Âprobability of storms in the past ... It sort of goes down as you to further north in Florida.ÂŽ Homes in the Panhandle were mostly required to be built to 130 mph wind standards. Of course many, especially on Mexico City, were old Florida homes that have been standing since well before any building codes were determined. Thankfully, after witnessing MichaelÂs destruction, state and local ofÂ“cials are rethinking the building codes. There seems to be agreement they need to be stronger. At least thatÂs what Gov. Rick Scott and FEMA chief Brock Long said last week while walking through what is left of Mexico City. FloridaÂs Building Commission is looking at revising state codes now. There should be no doubt Hurricane Michael will weigh heavy on their decisions. Builders and contractors of course will likely Â“ght higher standards. The more hurricane-proof you build a home, the more it will cost. But, hopefully, most of those who make a living building homes will realize that money is not always the most important consideration. That safety and saving lives is what is most important. ItÂs difÂ“cult for us to believe that any of the baby boomers moving to Florida would let a few thousand dollars, versus having their home still standing after a hurricane, stop a purchase. The Building Commission, and lawmakers if needed, need to make all of Florida as safe from hurricanes as possible Make South FloridaÂs tough building codes standard for the entire coastline.

That is so small, but Dr. Gardner was able to detect that.ÂŽ A biopsy showed the tumor was in her milk ducts and it was localized; it had not spread. ÂDr. Gardner held my hand through the whole thing and said we would get through it,ÂŽ she said. ÂI kept asking myself, ÂWhat did I do?Â ÂHow did I get this?Â and ÂGod, what do I do now?ÂÂŽ She and her husband told their children, who were 25and 26 years-old at the time together. She said they were very upset initially but they supported their mom in her Â“ght against cancer. She said she was not worried about her husbandÂs reaction to what the treatments could do to her physically. ÂI am blessed to have Craig,ÂŽ she said. ÂHe doesnÂt care about the outside, he cares about whatÂs in your heart and how you treat others.ÂŽ Beaudry, her husband and her medical team made a plan of action. She had all of the imaging and test results she would need before her consult with the breast surgeon. She had a lumpectomy with intraoperative radiation. She said the decision for the intraoperative radiation was a no-brainer. ÂI was given a choice to have radiation after the lumpectomy for one minute a day for Â“ve weeks or radiation once during the surgery,ÂŽ she said. ÂDuring the operation (lumpectomy) they set the radiation machine and do about 10 minutes of radiation once. It is very focused on just the area where the tumor was. ItÂs almost like a laser.ÂŽ She was also happy because with the intraoperative radiation there would be no radiation tattoos and was a onetime procedure. The surgery was done as an out-patient procedure. Her doctor told her to take off work and rest for two weeks, but her boss ordered her to rest for three weeks. The lumpectomy scar is barely visible, according to Beaudry. She told her husband if she needed chemotherapy, she would refuse it. Being small in stature, she says she has many side effects to medications and would not want to have chemotherapy because of the reactions. Her friends, family and co-workers rallied around her during her diagnosis and treatment. ÂWe have a wonderful team at the hospital,ÂŽ Beaudry said. ÂAbout 30 people from my department came in to join me for the breast cancer rally. They should know how much they mean to me. They care for me so much. The staff, doctors and even their wives showed up to support me.ÂŽ Beaudry credits God for her healing. ÂThere were miracles along the way to get me to where I am,ÂŽ she said. Beaudry urges every woman to get a mammogram whether they have a family history or not. ÂThey caught my cancer very early,ÂŽ she said. ÂThat is the key for a good outcome. Do a well visit every year; not just when youÂre sick. As we get older, some things donÂt work anymore. One in eight women will get breast cancer each year whether there is a history of it or not.ÂŽCANCERFROM PAGE 1A COURTESY PHOTONina Beaudry is supporting others with breast cancer at a awareness rally, as others supported her.

Athletes with various disabilities competed in three-wheel and twowheel cycling, running, walking and tennis and softball throwing events. Even the oldest Special STARS athlete in Highlands County, Lee Bass Hughes, who is 84 years old, competed in an assisted walking event by using his walker. Hughes donned his Superman T-shirt during the event so he could Â”y down the track at the speed of light. He was able to win a third-place medal in the 50 meter assisted walk. In his heat, Joe Peacock took Â“rst and Timmy Cypress won second. ÂI liked that. It made me feel good,ÂŽ Hughes said about his walking event. ÂWhat is really important is that no matter what their age or disability, they keep on moving and getting exercise,ÂŽ Special STARS Coordinator Cindy Marshall said. ÂThere used to be a day that people with disabilities were locked up in institutions with very little activities. Now, they have opportunities to thrive in our community through exercise, socialization, employment, education and live in their own homes.ÂŽ Special STARS, which provides 14 sports and eight recreational activities for children and adults, STARS athletes give it their allGreat competition in track and field event COURTESY PHOTOThe oldest Special STARS athlete Lee Bass Hughes, 84, (left) races in the 50-meter assisted walk event against Timmy Cypress while volunteer Laverne Walker assists him. By KYLE HIGHTOWERASSOCIATED PRESSFOXBOROUGH, Mass. Â„ Running the football has been an adventure for the New England Patriots this season. Injuries and inconsistency were issues early on as the Patriots struggled in short yardage and failed to produce a touchdown in the Â“rst three games. Jeremy Hill was lost for the year after he suffered a knee injury in the New EnglandÂs season opener. Two games later, starter Rex Burkhead hurt his neck in the PatriotsÂ loss to Detroit and was also placed on injured reserve. Buoyed by the production of rookie Sony Michel, who had missed the preseason with his own knee issue, New England scored seven touchdowns on the ground over the next three games. Michel had four of them, to go along with two 100-yard games. But the PatriotsÂ running backs were again held out of the end zone in last weekÂs 38-31 win at Chicago. Production slowed considerably when Michel had to be helped off the Â“eld in the second quarter after having his left knee bent back awkwardly while he was being tackled. ÂWhat happened to Sony ... could happen to anybody at any time, unfortunately. So, we have to be prepared for those things,ÂŽ Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. ÂAt whatever point the die is cast and we know what it is, we go in that direction.ÂŽ Where that is exactly is to be determined as New England returns to AFC East play tonight at Buffalo.

The team travels around the state to different tournaments. Coach Merlin Fredericks started out just practicing and training every day with his son, Lucas Fredericks. Lucas told a few of his friends from school, who told a few of their friends and they all decided to join in. Coach Fredericks ofÂ“cially formed the Highlands United Soccer Club in February of this year. What started out just as a father-son activity has blossomed into a county wide adventure. Other parents volunteered to help coach the players and by word-of-mouth alone the program now has over 50 athletes participating. ÂIn a short space of time the athletes have done tremendously well,ÂŽ said Coach Fredericks. ÂIt shows the amount of talent in this county. This is never what I expected. It has just gotten bigger and bigger. When we applied we were ranked 19th in the state of Florida. We were very excited to be given that opportunity. These athletes train hard Monday through Friday after school and they would do more if we let them. None of these kids want to stop but without lights on our Â“elds we have to stop at sundown.ÂŽ The Highlands United Soccer Club won their Â“rst tournament in February in Avon Park. The team traveled to Boca Raton and won the 5 on 5 tournament. Most recently the team won in the Sarasota Soccer Tournament. ÂWe donÂt just do soccer out here,ÂŽ said Coach Fredericks.

We pray with these kids, we teach them about the bible and God. We want to make an impact on these kids. The statistics of the amount of people on social media is amazing. We want to draw these kids out of the home and into a sport. Coach Fredericks grew up loving soccer because of his father and brother. Fredericks came to America on a swimming scholarship but grew tired of swimming and decided to start focusing on soccer with his son. We have seven coaches, Fredericks said. Our coaches are heavily committed to building these kids up. My mission is to create the leaders of tomorrow. The vision came from my son. My son doesnt watch televi sion or have a phone. He goes to school, practices, does homework, and goes to bed. We put him in an environment where he doesnt need those things. He is focused and has goals. He wants to play in the English Premiere League when he grows up. As a parent I am trying to help him the way my parents helped me. I have always taught kids and that is a gift that God has given me. One of our players, Jeremiah Smith, his father passed away ve months ago and his mother is going through a tough time. He absolutely loves this, this is his sanctuary, and he needs these teammates. That is just one of many kids out here that need this club. What society is pushing on them today and we are trying to give them an alternative. Our mission is to develop their character.

CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDESECTION BMonday, October 29, 2018 HIGHLANDS HEALTH Dark chocolate is a staple in my house. What are you supposed to do if youÂre allergic to milk, and want to eat dark chocolate? ItÂs a good question. Milk is actually allowed as an ingredient in ÂdarkÂŽ chocolate, but sometimes it produces a harmful allergy in dairy-sensitive individuals. The reality is that most chocolates contain some milk, and itÂs undisclosed. The FDA actually tested 100 different brands of dark chocolate bars, and they speciÂ“cally tested it for the presence of milk. Of these 100 bars, only six of them listed the ingredient of milk! The other 88 bars did not disclose milk as an ingredient, yet 51 of them contained milk. Dairytainted chocolates are among the most frequently reported allergic reactions. ItÂs unfortunate, but true that milk can get into a dark chocolate product even when itÂs not directly added. The problem happens because the dark chocolate is often produced on the same equipment that makes their milk chocolate bars. And traces of milk often inadvertently wind up in the dark chocolate batter. ItÂs essentially a problem of cross-contamination. My best suggestion to you is to completely avoid dark chocolate (if youÂre allergic to milk or dairy) unless the brand youÂre buying is made on equipment dedicated to dark chocolate bars only. This is hard to Â“nd, but possible. This is why itÂs difÂ“cult to place your trust in the food industry. They donÂt mean to make people sick, but their laziness or sloppiness can lead to pain and suffering for some of you. As a result, you see warnings on the label that serve as a wink of sorts. This product Âmay contain dairyÂŽ or Âmay contain traces of milkÂŽ or this one, Âmanufactured in a facility that uses milk.ÂŽ There are others but if youÂre my best friend, I would tell you to replace the word ÂmayÂŽ with Âprobably!ÂŽ The take home message is you should not assume that your dark chocolate is free of milk, and you should not consume it if you have serious allergic reactions to milk, regardless of the label. I have a checklist of 14 alias names for milk-derived ingredients which may be hidden in your food. My list will help you Â“nd undisclosed milk in your candy bars and chocolates. If youÂd like to receive that as well as the longer version of todayÂs article, sign up for my newsletter at suzycohen.com and I will email this to you next week. IÂll also tell you why some chocolate bars arenÂt good for vegans. HereÂs a fun fact, white chocolate doesnÂt contain any cacao whatsoever, itÂs just a combination of cocoa butter, sugar, and milk, but no cocoa solids like dark and milk chocolate have. ItÂs deÂ“nitely something to avoid if youÂre dairy-intolerant or allergic to milk. In closing, when it comes to dark chocolate, the dairy free claims and statements on the label are best completely disregarded if the manufacturer fails to use dedicated machinery and equipment due to cross-contamination.Dark chocolate may contain milkDEAR PHARMACISTSuzy Cohen SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNPeople with high blood pressure taking medication for their condition are more likely to beneÂ“t from the therapy if they have good oral health, according to new research in the American Heart AssociationÂs journal Hypertension. Findings of the analysis, based on a review of medical and dental exam records of more than 3,600 people with high blood pressure, reveal that those with healthier gums have lower blood pressure and responded better to blood pressure-lowering medications, compared with individuals who have gum disease, a condition known as periodontitis. SpeciÂ“cally, people with periodontal disease were 20 percent less likely to reach healthy blood pressure ranges, compared with patients in good oral health.

ItÂs that time of the year again ... hunting season. Therefore, it is also time for a lot of people in our community to take assessment of the type of hearing protection that they use. If you are shooting guns then you should get the best sound-limiting ear plugs or devices that you can. If you get the little foam plugs from the store then they will usually cut out 10-15db of noise protection. Some may provide up to 20db. Of course, that is dependent upon how well it actually seals the ear. You can also get custom-made ear plugs made at a hearing health care providerÂs ofÂ“ce. They can be stylish or even almost invisible. There are many styles and purposes for the plugs. They have speciÂ“c ear plugs for speciÂ“c needs. For instance, musiciansÂ ear plugs would be different than the type that an industrial worker would use. Custom-made ear plugs can take out up to 35db of damaging noise and sounds. That is double of what most over-the-counter ear plugs will provide. Speech between two people carrying on a conversation is about 60db (just to give you an idea of what 35db of sound reduction would be). Depending upon your gun, almost all will produce damaging noise above 140db. Some guns and environments in which they are Â“red will produced noise up to 190db. Sudden noise exposure to sounds at 120db or more can cause immediate and irreversible damage. Other sounds can also cause permanent hearing loss. The list is lengthy: lawn mowers, power tools, pressure washers, motorcycles, trucking, noisy bars and loud concerts. Not only do we need to be careful of how loud the sounds are but to how long we are exposed to them. The more intense the decibel level, the shorter the time that you can be exposed to it before damage sets in. Did you know that if your ears ring after being exposed to noise you have done some damage to your hearing? If your kids are listening to loud music or using ear buds, then limit the volume and the amount of time they are in the ears. Studies show that 17 percent of kids between the ages of 12 and 16 already have noise-induced hearing loss brought on by the use of earbuds. Get naggy! Make them turn it down. Make them take them out for a while. Other than foam or custom ear buds there are also products such as SoundGear. This product can be used for all types of noise protection. There are three different styles. There is the SoundGear Insta-Â“t. It is the smallest and lightest on the market and provides dynamic and digital noise reduction. It is great for hunters or industrial workers and is comfortable to wear all day. They are ready to go right out of the box. Starkey Hearing Technologies also makes the SoundGear BTE (Behind-the-ear) and the SoundGear Custom. The BTE has two different technologies levels while the Custom has advanced electronic hearing protection and enhancement technology available on the market today. They allow for programming and personalization of your speciÂ“c needs. Protect your hearing and your families hearing. We often take our senses for granted until something happens that makes us take notice. Like something poking us in the eye and we canÂt see. Or we get sick and we canÂt taste food right or smells get messed up. Our hearing is a ÂsenseÂŽ that we can actually be diligent about protecting. Be active and enjoy life.

www.highlandsnewssun.com October 29, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B3referral to a dentist. ÂPhysicians should pay close attention to patientsÂ oral health, particularly those receiving treatment for hypertension, and urge those with signs of periodontal disease to seek dental care,ÂŽ Pietropaoli said. ÂLikewise, dental health professionals should be aware that oral health is indispensable to overall physiological health, including cardiovascular status,ÂŽ said study lead investigator Davide Pietropaoli, D.D.S., Ph.D., of the University of LÂAquila in Italy. The target blood pressure range for people with hypertension is less than 130/80 mmHg according to the latest recommendations from the American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology. In the study, patients with severe periodontitis had systolic pressure that was, on average, 3 mmHg higher than those with good oral health. Systolic pressure, the upper number in a blood pressure reading, indicates the pressure of blood against the walls of the arteries. While seemingly small, the 3mmHg difference is similar to the reduction in blood pressure that can be achieved by reducing salt intake by 6 grams per day (equal to a teaspoon of salt, or 2.4 grams of sodium), the researchers said. The presence of periodontal disease widened the gap even farther, up to 7 mmHg, among people with untreated hypertension, the study found. Bloodpressure medication narrowed the gap, down to 3 mmHg, but did not completely eliminate it, suggesting that periodontal disease may interfere with the effectiveness of blood pressure therapy. ÂPatients with high blood pressure and the clinicians who care for them should be aware that good oral health may be just as important in controlling the condition as are several lifestyle interventions known to help control blood pressure, such as a low-salt diet, regular exercise and weight control,ÂŽ Pietropaoli said. While the study was not designed to clarify exactly how periodontal disease interferes with blood pressure treatment, the researchers say their results are consistent with previous research that links lowgrade oral inÂ” ammation with blood vessel damage and cardiovascular risk. Hypertension is estimated to affect up to 40 percent of people over age 25 worldwide. Untreated or poorly controlled hypertension can lead to heart attacks, strokes and heart failure, as well as kidney disease. Hypertension is estimated to claim 7.5 million lives worldwide. Red, swollen, tender gums or gums that bleed with brushing and Â” ossing are tell-tale signs of inÂ” ammation and periodontal disease. So are teeth that look longer than before, a sign of receding gums, and teeth that are loose or separating from the gum line.ORALFROM PAGE 1B By Nancy DaleYOGA FOR LIFEThe Hopi Indians regard themselves as one of the Â“ rst inhabitants of America. Their village at Oraibi, Arizona clings to a 600-foot escarpment Ârising abruptly out of the desert plain, one of the oldest continuously occupied settlements in the US.ÂŽ Their culture expresses a Ârhythm of lifeÂŽ with a continual examination of the need for inner change (ÂBook of the Hopi,ÂŽ Frank Waters). Yoga, which dates back to Indian Sanskrit roots in the Sarasvati civilization in Northern India, 5,000 years ago, expresses a similar philosophy and practice that emphasizes awakening of the mind, intellect and self through the practice of transformative yoga postures. Although Yoga has roots in eastern Buddhist values, today, the practice is secular. Yoga, similar to the Hopi belief in discovering the inner human qualities, is a practice that internalizes the way we think and move. Our inner teacher speaks through the mind/body/ emotions and energy Â“ eld. For example, when we Â“ rst practice Yoga, we may Â“ nd it difÂ“ cult to move into certain postures due to tight muscles and limited thoughts that may say to us: ÂYoga is too difÂ“ cult.ÂŽ We let go of these limiting thoughts as we practice Yoga postures. LetÂs begin a simple relaxation pose: Tadasana or Mountain Pose A beginning Yoga practice of simply standing in ÂTadasanaÂŽ (Mountain Pose) with our eyes closed, feet shoulder width apart, long spine, arms straight down on each side while deeply inhaling/exhaling and letting of all distracting thoughts, helps us to relax. We can do this posture anytime we want to take a break from tension. When we hold Tadasana for ten minutes or longer, we begin to feel replenished on several levels of consciousness. We discover new potential energy and gradually release tight muscles through deep breathing. After standing quietly in Tadasana for ten minutes, release the posture slowly. Next, lay on the back with arms and legs outstretched at the sides. Keeping the eyes closed, observe how the physical body feels when you let the body sink into the mat. Close the eyes and inhale/exhale through the nose. Next, slowly raise one leg at a time above the hip, heel to the sky. Rotate legs slowly with concentration, not overstretching muscles. If there is limited mobility, do whatever the body allows at the present time. Over time, as we repeat the posture, we discover more lengthening of the muscles, less tightness and increased blood Â” ow. Yoga is a way to re-discover our physical potential at any age level, inÂ“ rmary or limitation. Yoga is a an inner/ outward exploration that provides us with a way to ÂgrowÂŽ and discover another dimension of ourselves that may have been lurking in the shadows. Take the Yoga journey of inner discovery into a dimension of wholeness. Begin that discovery by joining a Yoga class with other practitioners who are also on this journey.Personal transformation COURTESY PHOTOYoga is a way to re-discover our physical potential at any age level, inÂ“ rmary or limitation.

Due to its soothing and calming nature, itÂs often seen around our homes by way of room fresheners, soap, laundry detergent and more.Smelling lavender can gently uplift us and calm us emotionally. An essential oil diffuser with just a couple drops could reduce the effects of anxiety and depression. Using homemade balms or lotions made with lavender essential oil would be another easy way to incorporate its relaxing properties into our daily lives. Lavender has other uses, not just aromatically but internally as well. Many people donÂt know that lavender is edible. It can be added to our diets via its essential oil form in many different ways to calm physical ailments. Mild gastrointestinal distress can be gently settled using lavender. After discussing it with your primary care physician, ailments like gas, intestinal infections, or even worms could beneÂ“t from this essential oil in its therapeutic and food grade form. Just a couple drops under the tongue, or added into our tea, would be sufÂ“cient and ease discomfort. Externally, lavender could help heal our skin. The oil is one of the select extracts that can be applied undiluted directly on the skin generally without causing adverse reactions. It can be used to treat mild burns and prevent infection, while combined with coconut oil for example. Other skin irritations such as bug bites, allergic reactions and rashes can also be treated. Even thrush can beneÂ“t from having lavender added to an existing treatment plan. Those struggling with issues concerning their hair could also look to this natural approach. With coconut oil or avocado oil as a carrier, lavender can aid with many cranial concerns. A lavender treatment could provide some relief for itchy and dry scalps due to dandruff. Gently massaging the mixture into the scalp also is known to replenish those dealing with hair loss. A local essential oil representative or health food store could assist you in Â“nding a suitable and safe source to try.The benefits of lavender COURTESY PHOTOOctober is Pastor Appreciation Month at The Palms of Sebring.

But in this case, both fresh pumpkin and canned pumpkin are packed with nutrients, such as potassium, vitamin A and iron. If you want to use fresh pumpkin, look for pumpkins without blemishes that are Â“rm and heavy for their size. Whole pumpkins can be stored in a cool dark place for up to two months. If you use fresh pumpkin for bread, soup, pie or other recipes, donÂt throw away the seeds. You can bake them for a wholesome, crispy snack. If youÂre looking for convenience, canned pumpkin without salt is a healthy alternative. Just check the Nutrition Facts label on the can so that you know what youÂre getting. Canned pumpkin products may be labeled as Âpumpkin,ÂŽ Â100 percent pumpkinÂŽ or Âpumpkin pie mix.ÂŽ Canned pumpkin pie mix Â„ which some recipes call for Â„ usually contains added sugar and is therefore higher in calories than regular canned pumpkin. Try using regular pumpkin and reducing the amount of sugar the recipe calls for.Looking for tennis playersLAKE PLACID Â„ Tennis players needed to meet every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 8 a.m. All levels of skill welcome.

A day after the shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that left 11 dead, ofÂ“ cials released the names of the victims. The oldest of them was 97. The youngest was 54. They included a pair of brothers and a husband and wife. Said Stephen Cohen, co-president of New Light Congregation: ÂThe loss is incalculable.ÂŽCecil and David Rosenthal: ÂSweet, gentle, caring menÂCecil and David Rosenthal went through life together with help from a disability-services organization.

ÂIf they were here, they would tell you that is where they were supposed to be,ÂŽ Chris Schopf, a vice president of the organization Achieva, said in a statement. Achieva provides help with daily living, employment and other needs, and the organization had worked for years with Cecil, 59, and David, 54, who were among the 11 killed in SaturdayÂs deadly shooting. They lived semi-independently, and Cecil was a person who was up for all sorts of activities: a concert, lunch at Eat Ân Park Â„ a regional restaurant chain known for its smiley-face cookies Â„ even a trip to the Duquesne University dining hall, recalls David DeFelice, a Duquesne senior who was paired with him in a buddies program. ÂHe was a very gregarious person Â„ loved being social, loved people. ...

The two-star general had no sooner retired from the Army and started his job as city manager for this Gulf Coast community when it was slammed by a category 4 hurricane. Hurricane Michael became the most devastating hurricane to hit Florida in decades. Almost all of Panama CityÂs water, sewer, electric and cell services were wiped out. Despite McQueen having no municipal experience and having been on the job only two weeks, city leaders say heÂs exactly the man they need for the long recovery ahead. ÂI believe the Lord sent him,ÂŽ Panama City Commissioner Billy Rader said. ÂGod knew this was going to happen before we did.ÂŽ The 58-year-old was a rare choice when commissioners picked him out of a candidate pool of 80 people, and not just because his experience was from the military. When McQueen accepted the job six months ago, he asked the commission for a grace period to wrap up his military service and end his civilian job as a churchÂs business administrator. There was another pressing matter, too. ÂThere was a gentleman who needed a kidney,ÂŽ he says casually. ThatÂs right.

Â„ She Â” ipped through television channels and radio stations, scanning from conservative to liberal media, searching for any sign that the polarized nation had Â“ nally reached its tipping point. For days, Elisa Karem Parker had been seeing updates in the news: A pipe bomb sent to liberal political donor George Soros. One delivered to CNN. More to former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other prominent political Â“ gures villainized by those on the right Â„ a bizarre plot unfolding just ahead of the midterm election that will decide which party controls Congress. ÂItÂs like our country is becoming ÂThe Hunger Games,ÂÂŽ Parker, who considers herself squarely in the middle of the political divide, told her husband and teenage son over dinner. As authorities intercepted more than a dozen pipe bombs addressed to President Donald TrumpÂs most ardent critics Â„ and then, on Saturday, as news broke of yet another mass shooting in America Â„ political scientists and ordinary citizens observed again that rabid partisanship had devolved to the point of acts of violent extremism. Many wonder whether this latest spasm might be the moment that the nation collectively considers how poisonous the political culture has become and decides to turn the other way. ÂIf this isnÂt it, IÂd hate to think about what it will take,ÂŽ said Parker as she cast her ballot in early voting last week in Louisville, Kentucky. The mail-bomb plot is merely the latest in a series of stunning attacks to test how much political animosity Americans are willing to accept: the shooting of a Republican congressman at a baseball practice, the white supremacist rally that turned deadly in Virginia, the recent ricin scareletters mailed to Trump and other top members of his administration. On Friday, authorities arrested a suspect in the bomb probe Â„ a 56-yearold registered Republican and Trump enthusiast who Âappears to be a partisan,ÂŽ Attorney General Jeff Sessions said when asked about motive. By then, politicians and talking heads had already backed into the usual corners. Both parties blamed the other, and the president called for unity, then again described liberals and the media as villains. The hope Parker had that this might be a turning point faded. Then came the shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that claimed 11 lives, an attack likely to cause ugly partisan debates over gun control, Enough is enough: Fed-up Americans crave unity amid violenceVIOLENCE | 3 D one.

Page 2 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Monday, October 29, 2018NATION/STATEBy ANNE GEGGISSUN SENTINEL (TNS)FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. Â…Â… Nearly two years after Florida voters overwhelmingly approved medical marijuana, some citiesÂ temporary stops to cannabis businesses have turned into outright bans. Temporary bans in Boca Raton, Coral Springs, Margate, Tamarac and Pembroke Pines have become permanent, effectively keeping dispensaries out of certain communities and drawing concerns from medical marijuanaÂs proponents. They join at least seven other South Florida cities with bans. Benjamin Pollara, who was a political consultant in the 2014 and 2016 referendums to allow medical marijuana, said city governments are subverting the will of the people. More than 70 percent of Florida voters in 2016 agreed that medical patients with certain illnesses should have access to medical marijuana. ÂYouÂve got the biggest population center in the state and patient access has been seriously limited by these local governments passing bans, and I think itÂs really shameful,ÂŽ Pollara said. State rules adopted in 2017 left cities with two options: ban dispensaries outright, or regulate their locations to the same degree that pharmacies are regulated, which in most cases means allowing them in all commercial districts. The only restriction is that they must be at least 500 feet from a public or private school. In addition to the places where temporary bans have become permanent, other cities that ban them are Delray Beach, Highland Beach, Hillsboro Beach, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Royal Palm Beach, Sea Ranch Lakes and Southwest Ranches. Of the 64 dispensaries in Florida, 11 have opened across South Florida, with three in Broward County, three in Palm Beach County and Â“ve in Miami-Dade County, according to the state Health Department records. Even Lake Worth, the Â“rst South Florida city to have a dispensary, is rolling up the welcome mat, not wanting to attract more than its fair share. The city so far has two dispensaries and last month voted to ban any new ones. ÂThe state didnÂt put the right regulations in place,ÂŽ said Lake Worth Mayor Pam Triolo. Perhaps Lake Worth allowed them too quickly, he said. ÂIt put us in a very tricky predicament.ÂŽ Nearly two years since voters said they wanted medical marijuana, some cities have just recently started moving toward allowing dispensaries or tip-toeing toward more conversations about whether to allow them. Â„ Sunrise in August voted to allow them, after approving numerous 120-day moratoriums that were extended again and again. Â„ Hollywood City Commission last month unanimously agreed to allow them after an initial review. The Â“nal approval is expected soon. Â„ Boca RatonÂs leaders agreed on Monday to hold another workshop on the issue in the coming months. City leaders have complained theyÂve had limited options after the Legislature passed guidelines for the dispensaries. ÂThis is a prime example of how home rule is taken away,ÂŽ said Hollywood Commissioner Traci Callari. ÂOnce you open the door to one, you open the door to many. The last thing we need in Hollywood is a medical marijuana dispensary on every corner.ÂŽ Also, some cities have argued that people can have marijuana delivered delivery if they need it. Under that reasoning, dispensaries shouldnÂt open in every town. Because marijuana is still illegal under federal regulations, banking and credit cards canÂt be involved. Medical marijuana is a cash-only business, which is widely regarded as a magnet for crime. But authorities say there havenÂt been problems in some communities where theyÂve opened. Palm Beach County SheriffÂs Capt. Todd Baer in Lake Worth said no crimes have been reported at Lake WorthÂs two dispensaries. And there only have been three or four calls for service because of reports of suspicious people. ÂMost of my fears have been allayed,ÂŽ Baer told city leaders. ÂThe only fear I have is robbery because itÂs a cash business. Âƒ Both (dispensaries) run a very professional organization.ÂŽ Margate City Commissioner Lesa Peerman predicted that state rules eventually will broaden marijuanaÂs legality to render the dispensary bans moot. She belongs to a Florida League of Cities committee that supports legislation that would give cities more regulation over marijuana shops. That would give cities more latitude than the two current options, to ban them or regulate them no more than regular commercial pharmacies. DeerÂ“eld Beach Commissioner Todd Drosky said heÂs already hearing from his constituents uncertain about a third dispensary thatÂs in the pipeline to open in his city. DeerÂ“eld embraced dispensaries, refusing to make its initial ban on them permanent, in spite of some asking city leaders to wait and see. The dispensaries, he said, Âhave only opened recently Â„ so IÂm not ready to play judge and jury yet.ÂŽSome Florida cities that temporarily banned marijuana dispensaries now keep them out permanentlyFORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) Â„ Authorities say an airline pilot was arrested at a Florida airport after a loaded gun was found in his carry-on suitcase. The News-Press reports Brian Andrew Machtemes of Minnetonka, Minnesota, was arrested Friday at Southwest Florida International Airport. A Lee County Port Authority arrest report says the 54-year-old Sun Country Airlines pilot was arrested when a Transportation Security Administration agent found a loaded pistol in his suitcase. The report says Machtemes has a permit to carry the gun in Minnesota, but that it wasnÂt valid in Florida. The TSA allows unloaded Â“rearms in locked containers only as checked baggage. Airline spokeswoman Kirsten Wenker conÂ“rmed Machtemes is a pilot but declined further comment, citing privacy reasons. Machtemes was released on $5,000 bond. Jail records didnÂt show whether he had an attorney.Police: Pilot had loaded gun in suitcase at Florida airport STATE BRIEFS WASHINGTON (AP) Â„ Sensing that Jeff SessionsÂ days at the Justice Department may be numbered, some of his supporters want the White House to allow for a graceful exit for an attorney general they believe has dutifully carried out the administrationÂs agenda even while enduring the presidentÂs fury. It seems unlikely that efforts to soften a possible dismissal after the Nov. 6 midterm election would Â“nd sympathy in the White House, where President Donald TrumpÂs rage re mains unabated over the attorney generalÂs recusal from the Russia investigation. A hand-picked successor could theoretically oversee the rest of the probe in place of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. But some supporters say they hope that if and when Sessions is replaced, his record as senator and attorney general will be recognized and not overwhelmed by TrumpÂs attacks, or that the administration will at least respect the Justice Department by guaranteeing a smooth transition. A scenario advocated by at least one Sessions ally, former Cincinnati Mayor Ken Blackwell, would allow him to remain on the job until January and be permitted to resign on his own then rather than be Â“red immediately after the midterms. Blackwell said allies have made their case to administration ofÂ“cials that Sessions has successfully pushed the presidentÂs core priorities, including on illegal immigration, and deserves some sort of recognition from the White House that Âhe has more than a passing grade.ÂŽ ÂIt is not unknown, from anyone from John Kelly to Jared Kushner, that there is a base of support,ÂŽ said Blackwell, referring to TrumpÂs chief of staff and son-in-law. ÂA portion of that base is ready to continue advocacy for his service.ÂŽ Newt Gingrich, a former Republican House speaker who is close to the White House and calls himself a longtime ÂadmirerÂŽ of Sessions, said he would be open to serving as an intermediary if asked between the White House and Sessions supporters. ÂHe deserves a graceful exit. His career deserves a strong conclusion,ÂŽ said Gingrich, who called Sessions Âa strong conservative who has done strong work at the Department of Justice.ÂŽ Sessions, who has publicly acknowledged the presidentÂs displeasure, has plowed forward with the conventional duties of the job, including a regular calendar of events and announcements. On Friday, he spoke Â“rst at the Justice Department news conference announcing the arrest of a mail-bomb suspect in Florida. The president, though mindful that Sessions remains popular among much of his base, would seem unlikely to sign off on a plan to extend SessionsÂ time in ofÂ“ce, according to a White House ofÂ“cial and an outside adviser familiar with TrumpÂs thinking but not authorized to publicly discuss private conversations. Trump has repeatedly had to be talked out of Â“ring Sessions before November and has signaled to allies that he wants to make sweeping changes at the Justice Department once the midterms have concluded. He told The Associated Press this month that he was Ânot thrilledÂŽ with Sessions but made no commitment to dismiss him. If Trump were to wait, it would not be out of deference to Sessions, but rather because the White House would be managing the fallout from the midterms and preparing for a pair of presidential overseas trips in November, according to the ofÂ“cial. SessionsÂ decision to recuse remains his original sin in TrumpÂs eyes. Trump has fumed that Sessions has not done more to protect his personal interests and has vented about what he sees as SessionsÂ failure to get a handle on immigration and his lack of emphasis on combating transnational criminal organizations. Cameron Smith, a former Sessions Senate aide, said, ÂThe idea that this gets better Â„ they stand next to each other and sing common praises Â„ I just donÂt see anybody looking at that seriously.ÂŽ After being berated by Trump over the recusal decision last year, Sessions offered his resignation, but it was rejected. He has been widely viewed as determined to stay in the job because he believes in TrumpÂs agenda, which largely mirrors his own interests, and reluctant to leave a job for which he gave up a Senate seat. For more than a year, Trump has repeatedly polled advisers as to whether he should Â“re Sessions. Some of his closest aides, including attorney Rudy Giuliani, have counseled him not to do so, at least not yet. The case that SessionsÂ protectors outlined to Trump largely consists of three components: Â„ Firing Sessions, a witness in special counsel Robert MuellerÂs investigation of obstruction of justice, would add legal peril to his standing in the Russia probe. Â„ Doing so would anger the presidentÂs political base, which Trump cares deeply about, especially before the midterms. Â„ A number of Republican senators would rebel against the treatment of a longtime colleague and potentially not hold conÂ“rmation hearings for a replacement if the GOP holds onto the Senate. Blackwell, the Sessions friend, said conservatives are divided between those who support Â“ring him immediately and those who regard him as loyal to their cause, protective of their ideals and propelling TrumpÂs agenda. Gingrich, for instance, calls the recusal ÂinexcusableÂŽ even as he professes admiration for Sessions. The ground appears to have softened recently after some inÂ”uential Republicans, including Sen. Lindsey Graham, suggested Trump would have the right, after the elections, to select a replacement he trusted. Smith said one way Trump could enable a respectful exit would be for the White House to craft a smooth succession plan and allow Sessions to be part of the process. Ed Meese, a Reagan administration attorney general and Sessions friend, said he wasnÂt thinking about SessionsÂ departure because ÂI donÂt want to see him Â“red at all.ÂŽ ÂI think heÂs taken it with grace,ÂŽ Meese said of SessionsÂ response to TrumpÂs anger. ÂWhat he is recused from is less than 1 percent of the department and he has done an outstanding job in everything heÂs done in the department.ÂŽSome Sessions allies hope White House allows graceful exit AP PHOTOAttorney General Je Sessions pauses before speaking about the arrest of Cesar Sayoc, 56, of Aventura, Fla., in the package bom b case, during a news conference at the Department of Justice, Friday, in Washington.WEYERS CAVE, Va. (AP) Â„ Police are investigating the Virginia interstate crash of a minivan driven by a 99-year-old Florida man who died at the scene. Virginia State Police say the single-vehicle crash occurred in the southbound lanes of Interstate 81 in Augusta County. A police spokeswoman said Sunday that Lester P. White of Hobe Sound, Florida, was traveling alone. Police say WhiteÂs minivan ran off the right side of the interstate Saturday afternoon, crossed back on the southbound lanes and ran off the right side of the interstate, striking a guardrail and two highway signs. The police release says White wasnÂt wearing a seatbelt and was partially ejected from the vehicle.99-year-old Florida man dies in crash(AP) Â„ Two winning tickets were sold in Saturday nightÂs Powerball drawing to win a $688 million jackpot, which marks the fourth-largest lottery grand prize ever in U.S. history.

The Sun | Monday, October 29, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3NATION/WORLDhate speech and more. ÂI just canÂt believe the kind of violence that weÂre experiencing in our country,ÂŽ Pittsburgh resident Cindy Jennings said at a vigil for those targeted at the Tree of Life synagogue. ÂI feel like the leadership in our country right now is just encouraging violence, and I wish that that would stop.ÂŽ The volatile tribalism now so ingrained in American life will eventually right itself, says Robb Willer, a sociology professor at Stanford University, but not until the public decides itÂs had enough and stops rewarding politicians who use incendiary language and demonize the other side. ItÂs impossible to guess, he notes, how much damage will be done in the meantime. ÂThat is the question of our time: Are we going to choose to continue the war, or are we going to choose peace? And we donÂt know yet what the answer to that will be, because while a majority of Americans are fed up with the extremity of our political divisions, it does feel like weÂre stuck here,ÂŽ Willer says. ÂIt will get worse before it gets better.ÂŽ Animosity between parties has been growing for decades now, to the point that studies show Republicans and Democrats donÂt want to date one another, donÂt want their children to marry one another and donÂt want to live in the same neighborhoods at a rate unprecedented in modern America. At the same time, politicians began using increasingly apocalyptic language. Willer says those two forces Â„ the splintering of society along party lines and the ascent of vitriolic campaigning Â„ merged to create a breeding ground for violence. ÂIt was simmering,ÂŽ says Parker. ÂItÂs like the gas burner was on, then Trump lit the Â“re.ÂŽ The president vaulted to political prominence by promoting the racist and false conspiracy theory that Obama was not born in the United States, launched his presidential campaign by calling Mexicans rapists and murderers, and routinely describes his enemies, including the intended recipients of the pipe bombs, as Âevil,ÂŽ ÂÂdangerous,ÂŽ ÂÂthe enemy of the American people.ÂŽ ÂThat let loose a period of incivility, which is too mild a word; itÂs potentially explosive anger that can turn into violence,ÂŽ says Bob Shrum, a former Democratic strategist who last month started the Center for the Political Future, a program at the University of Southern California designed to restore sanity and bipartisanship in politics. HeÂs watched with frustration as some liberal politicians respond to TrumpÂs presidency by imitating his divisive style. He describes it as a Âcold civil war,ÂŽ where people consider those who disagree with them bad, un-American Â„ their enemy. ÂIs there a tipping point? I donÂt know,ÂŽ he says. ÂI do believe weÂre in a dangerous moment, unlike anything IÂve seen in my lifetime, and IÂm 75 years old.ÂŽ There is little evidence the tide will turn soon. Moderates are becoming increasingly rare in Washington, D.C., and Republicans willing to criticize TrumpÂs rhetoric, such as Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, are not running for re-election. ÂYou donÂt really have those reasonable voices kind of trying to bring everybody together,ÂŽ says Tom Freeman, a Republican attorney in Lincoln, Nebraska. ÂItÂs just kind of round and round we go, and the sides just get more and more extreme, and you donÂt have that rational leader in the crowd saying, ÂHey, letÂs dial it back.Â The sad thing is, if you did have that person, I donÂt know that anyone would listen to them.ÂŽ The polarization is bleeding into everyday AmericansÂ personal lives. Robert Major, a 51-year-old electrician and Republican from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, says he once moved because his landlord, a liberal, screamed at him for watching conservative news channels. Meeka Grayer, a 38-yearold radio talk show host and Democrat from Omaha, Nebraska, lost friends over the divide. One conservative friend posted on Facebook about the migrant caravan heading toward the United States from Central America, parroting the presidentÂs viliÂ“cation of the group. Grayer objected and was attacked for her comments, prompting her to block her friend. Though on opposite sides politically, Grayer and Major agree: The political climate is toxic and tiresome, but they have little conÂ“dence it will change because itÂs too useful to politicians who want to stay in power. ÂI think itÂs time for the little guy to take control, but will that happen?ÂŽ says Randy Wick, a 68-year-old Republican in Bloomingdale, Illinois, who blames Republicans, Democrats and the media for the division. ÂIt seems like a good olÂ boys club up there in Washington. ItÂs all about money.ÂŽ Willer, the Stanford sociologist, says the absence of political leaders brave enough to try to steer the country onto a better path means it will be left up to voters to break the cycle. Until then, the divisions will only get deeper. Some already casting votes for the Nov. 6 midterm election say they hope the system can self-correct. The future of the nation, the very concept of democracy, is at stake. ÂAmerica is resilient; we Â“nd a way even in our darkest days,ÂŽ 36-year-old Cordell Lawrence said as he voted last week in Louisville. Lawrence described himself only as a moderate, preferring not to make public what party he leans to because he worries that could hinder personal and professional relationships.

In August, he donated his left kidney to a man at his church, and took a few weeks to recover (the recipient is doing well). McQueen came to Panama City in 1988 for a job at a local community college. He met his wife here, and they raised their two children here. Over the years, he rose in the ranks of the military, from ofÂ“cer to Special Operations Command, to his Â“nal assignment as commanding general of the 108th Training Command headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina. There, he commanded some 7,000 soldiers. One of their tasks was to repair BaghdadÂs infrastructure. Another, more recent assignment was to help orchestrate the emergency response to Hurricane Florence on Sept. 14. He missed a recent city commission meeting because of that. On Sept. 24, he marked his Â“rst day on the job, and outlined to the local paper what he wanted to accomplish in his Â“rst 120 days. He spoke of looking Âdown and inÂŽ and Âup and outÂŽ to set the framework for a long-term strategic plan. He mentioned Â“veyear goals and a long-term vision that stretched toward 2050. All that lasted approximately two weeks. When Hurricane Michael bore down on FloridaÂs Panhandle, he ordered an evacuation for parts of the city and unrolled his Army bed mat and camouÂ”age blanket in the corner of the police chiefÂs ofÂ“ce. As the eyewall of the monster storm passed over the city, the police stationÂs roof threatened to lift. Water trickled into the building. When the storm passed, he surveyed the damage in this city of 40,000 people. Ninety percent of all the power poles were down. One of the two wastewater treatment plants was inoperable. Cellphones werenÂt working. The cityÂs lush tree canopy was in splinters, covering roads and homes. ÂThis is Baghdad with trees,ÂŽ he said. ÂOne hundred percent collapse of infrastructure.ÂŽ His own home wasnÂt damaged Â„ Âonly a few roof tilesÂŽ Â„ which allowed him to pour all of his focus into the city. Now, more than two weeks since the storm, heÂs still sleeping in the chiefÂs ofÂ“ce, but took a day to Â”y to Washington, D.C. His retirement ceremony from the military was Friday. It was his Â“rst day off since before the storm. After, he plans to return to Panama City and pull on his combat boots for the long haul. He knows he has his work cut out for him. Tens of thousands of homes are unlivable, and in a city where 75 percent of the schoolchildren get free or reduced price lunch, it will be a challenge to Â“nd affordable housing Â„ or any housing at all Â„ for the needy.

(AP) Â„ IBM announced Sunday it will acquire North Carolina-based opensource software company Red Hat in a $34 billion stock deal that the technology and consulting giantÂs chief executive says will advance the company to the next step in cloud computing. IBM and Raleigh-based Red Hat said in a joint statement that IBM would buy all Red Hat common shares at $190 apiece Â„ 63 percent above Red HatÂs closing price Friday. The two companies said the deal, approved by their respective boards, is subject to Red Hat shareholder and regulatory approval and should be completed in the latter half of 2019. Ginni Rometty, IBMÂs chairman, president and CEO, says the acquisition would make IBM the worldÂs No. 1 hybrid cloud provider Â„ thatÂs when companies use a mix of on-site, private and third-party public cloud services. ÂThe acquisition of Red Hat is a game-changer. It changes everything about the cloud market,ÂŽ Rometty said in the news release. The two companies said IBM intends to keep Red HatÂs headquarters in Raleigh, where it has more than 2,000 employees in a downtown ofÂ“ce building, as well as maintain Red HatÂs Âfacilities, brands and practices.ÂŽ Red Hat started in 1993, with its headquarters previously on the North Carolina State University campus.

SAO PAULO (AP) Â„ Jair Bolsonaro, a brash far-right congressman who has waxed nostalgic for BrazilÂs old military dictatorship, won the presidency of Latin AmericaÂs largest nation Sunday as voters looked past warnings that he would erode democracy and embraced a chance for radical change after years of turmoil. The former army captain, who cast himself as a political outsider despite a 27-year career in Congress, became the latest world leader to rise to power by mixing tough, often violent talk with hard-right positions. His victory reÂ”ected widespread anger at the political class after years of corruption, an economy that has struggled to recover after a punishing recession and a surge in violence. ÂI feel in my heart that things will change,ÂŽ said Sandra Coccato, a 68-year-old small business owner, after she voted for Bolsonaro in Sao Paulo. ÂLots of bad people are leaving, and lots of new, good people are entering. ThereÂs a light at the end of the tunnel.ÂŽ In Rio de Janeiro, thousands of Bolsonaro supporters gathered on iconic Copacabana Beach, where Â“reworks went off. In Sao Paulo, BrazilÂs largest city, cars horns could be heard honking and crowds celebrated as the results came in. There were also reports of clashes between his backers and opponents in Sao Paulo. Speaking to supporters from his home in Rio, Bolsonaro recounted how he was stabbed while campaigning last month and almost died. ÂI was never alone. I always felt the presence of God and the force of the Brazilian people,ÂŽ he said. Bolsonaro, who ran on promises to clean up Brazil and bring back Âtraditional values,ÂŽ said he would respect the constitution and personal liberty. ÂThat is a promise, not of a party, not the vain word of a man. ItÂs a promise to God,ÂŽ he said, standing next to his wife and many cheering supporters. Addressing supporters in Sao Paulo, his rival, Fernando Haddad of the WorkersÂ Party, did not concede or even mention Bolsonaro by name. Instead, his speech was a promise to resist. ÂWe have the responsibility to mount an opposition, putting national interests, the interests of the entire Brazilian people, above everything,ÂŽ Haddad said. ÂBrazil has never needed the exercise of citizenship more than right now. DonÂt be afraid. We are here. We are together!ÂŽ BrazilÂs top electoral court said Bolsonaro won with just over 55 percent of the vote, compared with just under 45 percent for Haddad. Bolsonaro went into Sunday the clear front-runner after getting 46 percent of the vote to HaddadÂs 29 percent in the Â“rst round of voting on Oct. 7, when 13 contenders were on the ballot. Opinion polls in recent weeks had him leading by as much as 18 percentage points, but the race tightened in the last few days. Several Brazilian heavyweights came out against him, arguing that he was a direct risk to the worldÂs fourth-largest democracy. His rise was powered by disgust with the political system. In particular, many Br azilians were furious with the WorkersÂ Party for its role in the graft scheme known as ÂCarwash.ÂŽ Haddad struggled to build momentum with his promises of a return to the boom times by investing in health and education and reducing poverty. Along the way, BolsonaroÂs candidacy also raised serious concerns that he would roll back civil rights and weaken institutions in what remains a young democracy. He frequently disparaged women, gays and blacks, and said he would name military men to his Cabinet. Minutes after he was elected, several international human rights groups put out statements demanding that Bolsonaro respect BrazilÂs democracy. In a highly unusual moment earlier Sunday, the chief justice of the Supreme Court, Jose Dias Toffoli, read out part of the Constitution to reporters after he voted. ÂThe future president must respect institutions, must respect democracy, the rule of law, the judiciary branch, the national Congress and the legislative branch,ÂŽ Toffoli said in remarks many took to be a rebuke of Bolsonaro and his more extreme positions. As late as Sunday morning, Haddad was still holding out hope that he could win after receiving several key endorsements late Saturday. Among them was a popular former Supreme Court justice, Joaquim Barbosa, who tweeted support for Haddad, saying BolsonaroÂs candidacy scared him. Likewise, former Attorney General Rodrigo Janot, one of the biggest crusaders against corruption in the WorkersÂ Party in recent years, also endorsed Haddad. One of the most important endorsements, particularly for young people, came from YouTube personality Felipe Neto, whose channel has nearly 27 million followers.Brazil elects far-right congressman Bolsonaro to presidency AP PHOTOWorkersÂ Party presidential candidate Fernando Haddad holds a Brazilian ag after casting his vote in the presidential runo election in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Sunday.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Monday, October 29, 2018By MATT SEDENSKY and MARYCLAIRE DALEASSOCIATED PRESSPITTSBURGH Â„ In a city known for its Jewish population, the neighborhood was the faithÂs spiritual heart and the synagogue a cornerstone of the community. For generations, Squirrel Hill has been known as one of PittsburghÂs most special enclaves, where the Tree of Life temple stood as a welcoming landmark. Residents marveled over their good fortune to live in a place that seemed open, accepting and secure. ÂPeople always felt safe here,ÂŽ said Jules Stein, a lifelong resident of Squirrel Hill who until recently belonged to Tree of Life. ÂIn one day, that changed.ÂŽ A gunman opened Â“re Saturday at the synagogue, killing 11 people. It was the type of violence that seemed impossible to many who called the neighborhood home. Tanya Cohen, who emigrated from Russia and lives near Tree of Life, always knew anti-Semitism existed but never thought it would strike so close. ÂIt seemed like here, those things were really far away and really removed from our reality,ÂŽ said Cohen, whose 12-year-old daughter was shaken by the sight of riÂ”e-carrying men in fatigues passing by their home. ÂThose are the things that we read in on a newspaper or in a book or watch in a movie.ÂŽ The former leader of Tree of Life, Rabbi Alvin Berkun, was dressed and ready to head to the synagogue on Saturday when his wife asked him to stay home because she didnÂt feel well. He said the congregation only posted security ofÂ“cers on the High Holidays, but even so never felt unsafe there. ÂThe community is very resilient and we will rebound,ÂŽ he said, Âbut it will leave a scar forever.ÂŽ Others, though grateful for the seeming bubble in which they lived, always feared such hatred could visit them. A 2017 report on PittsburghÂs Jewish community by Brandeis University researchers found 70 percent of area Jews were a little or somewhat concerned about anti-Semitism. Older Jews expressed the most fear: Onethird of those 65 and older said they were very concerned, versus 10 percent of those 18 to 34. The report estimated about 50,000 Jews call Greater Pittsburgh home. About 1 in 6 respondents said they had directly experienced anti-Semitism in the preceding year, mostly involving comments, insults, jokes and stereotypes. One person quoted in the report said, while walking to a synagogue, a motorist yelled Âdumb JewÂŽ and spat at them, before warning them to Âgo back to Squirrel Hill.ÂŽ Another told of a campaign sign for Donald Trump being put in their yard with a note saying it was from their Âneighborhood youth Hitler.ÂŽ ÂI have never been a person to say this could never happen here,ÂŽ said Aviva Lubowsky, a lifelong resident of Squirrel Hill who attended Hebrew school at Tree of Life as a child. ÂEver since 9/11, sitting in synagogue for the High Holidays, I feel like weÂre sitting ducks.ÂŽSynagogue attack shatters safety of longtime Jewish enclave AP PHOTOPersonnel from Chesed Shel Emes Emergency Services and Recovery Unit gather near the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Sunday. Robert Bowers, the suspect in the mass shooting at the synagogue, expressed hatred of Jews during the rampage and told ocers afterward that Jews were committing genocide and he wanted them all to die, according to charging documents made public Sunday. recognized Hebrew letters on CecilÂs calendar, the elder man was delighted to learn that his buddy was also Jewish and soon invited him to Tree of Life. DeFelice joined him on a couple of occasions and could see that Cecil cherished his faith and the sense of community he found at temple. Emeritus Rabbi Alvin Berkun saw that, too, in Cecil and David. ÂThey really found a home at the synagogue, and people reciprocated,ÂŽ he said. Cecil carried a photo in his wallet of David, whom Schopf remembers as a man with Âsuch a gentle spirit.ÂŽ ÂTogether, they looked out for each other,ÂŽ she said. ÂMost of all, they were kind, good people with a strong faith and respect for everyone around.ÂŽ The two left an impression on state Rep. David Frankel, who sometimes attends services at Tree of Life and whose chief of staff is the RosenthalsÂ sister. ÂThey were very sweet, gentle, caring men,ÂŽ Frankel said. Â... I know that this community will really mourn their loss because they were such special people.ÂŽMelvin Wax: ÂA sweet, sweet guyÂMelvin Wax was the Â“rst to arrive at New Light Congregation in PittsburghÂs Squirrel Hill neighborhood Â„ and the last to leave. Wax, who was in his late 80s, was among those killed when a gunman entered the synagogue Saturday and opened Â“re during Sabbath services. Fellow members of the congregation, which rented space in the lower level of the Tree of Life Synagogue, says Wax was a kind man and a pillar of the congregation, Â“lling just about every role except cantor. Myron Snider spoke late Saturday about his friend who would stay late to tell jokes with him. He said ÂMel,ÂŽ a retired accountant, was unfailingly generous. ÂHe was such a kind, kind person,ÂŽ said Snider, chairman of the congregationÂs cemetery committee. ÂWhen my daughters were younger, they would go to him, and he would help them with their federal income tax every year. Never charged them. ÂHe and I used to, at the end of services, try to tell a joke or two to each other. Most of the time they were clean jokes. Most of the time. I wonÂt say all the time. But most of the time.ÂŽ New Light moved to the Tree of Life building about a year ago, when the congregation of about 100 mostly older members could no longer afford its own space, said administrative assistant Marilyn Honigsberg. She said Wax, who lost his wife Sandra in 2016, was always there when services began at 9:45 a.m. ÂI know a few of the people who are always there that early, and he is one of them,ÂŽ she said. Snider said Wax, who was slightly hard of hearing, was a pillar of the congregation, Â“lling just about every role except cantor. ÂHe went Friday night, Saturday and Sunday, when there were Sunday services,ÂŽ said Snider, a retired pharmacist. ÂIf somebody didnÂt come that was supposed to lead services, he could lead the services and do everything. He knew how to do everything at the synagogue. He was really a very learned person.ÂŽ Snider had just been released from a six-week hospital stay for pneumonia and was not at SaturdayÂs services. ÂHe called my wife to get my phone number in the hospital so he could talk to me,ÂŽ Snider said. ÂJust a sweet, sweet guy.ÂŽJerry Rabinowitz: ÂTrusted confidant, healerÂDr. Jerry Rabinowitz and his partner in his medical practice were seemingly destined to spend their professional lives together. He and Dr. Kenneth Ciesielka had been friends with Rabinowitz for more than 30 years, since they lived on the same Â”oor at the University of Pennsylvania. Ciesielka was a few years behind Rabinowitz, but whether by fate or design, the two always ended up together. They went to the same college, the same medical school and even had the same residency at UPMC a few years apart. ÂHe is one of the Â“nest people IÂve ever met. WeÂve been in practice together for 30 years and friends longer than that,ÂŽ Ciesielka said. ÂHis patients are going to miss him terribly. His family is going to miss him terribly and I am going to miss him. He was just one of the kindest, Â“nest people.ÂŽ Former Allegheny County Deputy District Attorney Law Claus remembered Rabinowitz, a 66-year-old personal physician and victim in SaturdayÂs shooting, as more than a p hysician for him and his family for the last three decades. ÂHe was truly a trusted conÂ“dant and healer,ÂŽ he wrote in an email to his former co-workers on Sunday. ÂDr. Jerry Rabinowitz ... could always be counted upon to provide sage advice whenever he was consulted on medical matters, usually providing that advice with a touch of genuine humor. He had a truly uplifting demeanor, and as a practicing physician he was among the very best.ÂŽ Rabinowitz, a family practitioner at UPMC Shadyside, was remembered by UPMC as one of its Âkindest physicians.ÂŽ The hospital said in a statement that Âthe UPMC family, in particular UPMC Shadyside, cannot even begin to express the sadness and grief we feel over the loss.ÂŽ ÂThose of us who worked with him respected and admired his devotion to his work and faith. His loss is devastating,ÂŽ Tami Minnier, UPMC chief quality ofÂ“cer, wrote in a statement on Twitter.Joyce Fienberg: ÂMagnificent, generous, caringÂJoyce Fienberg and her late husband, Stephen, were intellectual power houses, but those who knew them say they were the kind of people who used that intellect to help others. Fienberg was among the 11 victims of a gunman who entered the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh Saturday and opened Â“re. The 74-year-old spent most of her career at the University of PittsburghÂs Learning Research and Development Center, retiring in 2008 from her job as a researcher looking at learning in the classroom and in museums. She worked on several projects including studying the practices of highly effective teachers. Dr. Gaea Leinhardt, who was FienbergÂs research partner for decades, said she is devastated by the murder of her colleague and friend. ÂJoyce was a magnificent, generous, caring, and profoundly thoughtful human being,ÂŽ she said. Stephen, who died in 2016 after a battle with cancer, was a renowned professor of statistics and social science at Carnegie Mellon University. His work was used in shaping national policies in forensic science, education and criminal justice. The couple married in 1965 and had moved to Pittsburgh in the early 1980s. Joyce began her work at the center in 1983. The couple had two sons and several grandchildren.Daniel Stein: ÂPassionate about the community and IsraelÂDaniel Stein was a visible member of PittsburghÂs Jewish community, where he was a leader in the New Light Congregation and his wife, Sharyn, is the membership vice president of the areaÂs Hadassah chapter. ÂTheir Judaism is very important to them, and to him,ÂŽ said chapter co-president Nancy Shuman. ÂBoth of them were very passionate about the community and Israel.ÂŽ Stein, 71, was president of the MenÂs Club at Tree of Life. He also was among a corps of the New Light members who, along with Wax and Richard Gottfried, 65, made up Âthe religious heartÂŽ of the congregation, Cohen, the congregation co-president, said. SteinÂs nephew Steven Halle told the TribuneReview that his uncle Âwas always willing to help anybody.ÂŽ With his generous spirit and dry sense of humor, Âhe was somebody that everybody liked,ÂŽ Halle said.Richard GottfriedRichard Gottfried was preparing for a new chapter in his life. Gottfried ran a dental ofÂ“ce w ith his wife and practice partner Margaret ÂPegÂŽ Durachko Gottfried. The dentist, who several have noted often did charity work seeing patients who could not otherwise afford dental care, was preparing to retire in the next few months. He, along with Wax and Stein, Âled the service, they maintained the Torah, they did what needed to be done with the rabbi to make services happen,ÂŽ Cohen said.LOSSFROM PAGE 1ALMANACToday is Monday, Oct. 29, the 302nd day of 2018.

The Sun | Monday, October 29, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger SaturdayÂs Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: The letter from the person taking tramadol for 10 years hit a nerve. Your answer prompted me to write. My 63-year-old husband has been on painkillers since 1994, when he tore his ligaments around L-5/S-1. He had back surgeries in 2002 (fusion and hardware), 2005 (remove hardware that was bothering him) and 2005 (two weeks later, emergency debridement surgery for infection). Over the years, he has taken every form of opiate out there, and when workers' compensation decided to stop paying for his OxyContin last year, his pain management specialist put him on buprenorphine 2 mg, twice a day. Nothing really helps; it just keeps the pain down to a dull roar. He also takes gabapentin for neuropathy. His pain doctor has now retired, but the doctor's associate keeps prescribing the tablets each month with no discussion of ever trying to wean him o. I'm not sure if these meds were ever intended to be for life. He has never abused the dosages, but he seems to think that if he were weaned o the medication that he would be in an unbearable amount of pain. Otherwise, he is in excellent health. We eat well, do yoga and Pilates, and ride our mountain bikes several times per week. Â„ R.A. ANSWER: Management of chronic pain is a complex issue. One study found that chronic opiate use did not actually reduce the pain the person is in, at least by self-reported pain measurements. Over time, the body adjusts to the amount of pain medication. On the other hand, there are some people who have much better pain control on opiates, so an experienced pain management specialist must use his or her best judgment, and sometimes a trial of reducing dosage is appropriate. Gabapentin is a common treatment to reduce overall pain. However, it is important to recognize that complete cessation of pain is unrealistic, and keeping the pain manageable and keeping up activity are appropriate goals. DEAR DR. ROACH: Can a blocked saliva gland cause a cough? I had one stone removed and continue to have swelling. I have a cough and wonder if they could be related. Â„ G.S. ANSWER: The symptoms of salivary gland stones mostly have to do with the glands themselves: swelling and sometimes pain. Initial management includes uid intake, moist heat and "milking" the duct to promote passage. A sour candy like a lemon drop, which promotes saliva, can help make the diagnosis, as it may cause an increase in pain, but it also can pop the stone right out if the stone is small or near the exit of the duct. Cough is not a usual symptom in salivary duct stones. DEAR DR. ROACH: How long after getting shingles should you take the shingles vaccine? Â„ C.M. ANSWER: You should wait until the shingles is completely healed before getting the vaccine. However, a recurrent case of shingles is quite unlikely in the rst year after getting shingles, so there is no rush to get the vaccine right away.DEAR ABBY: My daughter recently celebrated her 20th birthday. She's a good kid with a decent job who happens to like tattoos. My in-laws sent her a birthday card. This year, there was no gift but a note stating that they were not sending money as they felt she would use it toward more tattoos. When she read their note, my daughter broke down and cried. Should I ignore their rudeness and ignorance, or should I (or my husband) call them and stick up for our daughter? Â„ Trying To Be Nonjudgmental DEAR TRYING: What your in-laws did was uncalled for, and the person who should tell them that is your daughter because she's an adult. If they were really concerned that she would spend their gift money on a tattoo, they could have sent her a tangible gift Â„ an item of clothing or a gift card from a specic retailer. Shame on them. DEAR ABBY: I'm a 68-year-old divorced woman who has been dating a slightly older widower. We were beginning a nice relationship until he got mad at me for giving him a fever blister. He suggested we not see each other or talk for more than two weeks. After that, he texted me to see if my fever blister was gone. He said he was still sort of angry about it, and described how ugly and painful the blister was. I feel he was really petty, and it has put a damper on things. Am I wrong to feel this way? What is your advice? Hurry, please, because his blister is healing and he wants to see me. Â„ Embarrassed In Missouri DEAR EMBARRASSED: Your gentleman friend's behavior wasn't petty. The "fever blister" you gave him was a herpes virus. Before you see him again, talk to your doctor so he or she can explain how the virus is passed and what you can do to lessen the chances or prevent it in the future. If you do, you'll be doing both of you a favor. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND ON is about those people who rescue animals. Â„ Heloise "Dear Heloise: I believe it was Gandhi who once said, 'The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.' There are many wonderful people who nd a sad little stray or an animal that was dumped by a callous, uncaring person and bring the animal to us at the shelter. These rescuers dive under trucks, climb trees and do whatever they need to in order to save a cat or dog or any animal. They might hear a tiny cry or see a shivering animal, and they do what they can to provide shelter and food. "These are the unsung heroes, who seem to know no limit to kindness. To all of those who cannot look away, who cannot say, 'It's not my problem' when they see a homeless stray, thank you."

YouÂll make a decision based on what you feel, and popular opinion will not sway you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Maybe itÂs not always so important whether a particular belief is totally accurate or not. Is the belief useful? Does is make you better? Is it better for those around you? Helpful beliefs make things ow easily. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You were taught about the heroes that came before you, and itÂs now pretty clear that you werenÂt getting the whole story. The ugly side of history can be hard to reconcile, so hold on to the glimmers of benevolence. CANCER (June 22-July 22). YouÂre in a private mood. Plus, thereÂs just no benet to bragging. YouÂd rather lock your enviable accomplishments and beautiful pictures in a safe than put them on the internet. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If youÂve never heard of someone like you pursuing a goal, or you think the feat is just impossible, youÂll shut yourself o from the possibilities, thus ensuring that the event will not occur. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In some moments, life will be like watching a classic movie with scenes that donÂt quite t the current times. When old-fashioned beliefs are acted out, youÂll realize how much things have changed. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Those who are happy to help really do seem content in the act and donÂt appear to need special recognition for what they do. They donÂt draw attention to their kindness. These are the golden-hearted people to hold dear. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you have to ask to be treated well, it will make you wonder if youÂve chosen badly. But donÂt let that drag down your thoughts. Some people just need to be taught to get in touch with the spirit of compassion, teamwork and equity. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your best, most winning move will involve being fully engaged with the events of the day. You wonÂt even have time to stress over what might happen, because youÂre too busy building on the goodness that is happening. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). ItÂs a day to examine, update or acquire anew. Examine what, you ask? Update which? The same process applies to many areas of your life Â„ habits, thought processes, tools, relationships and more. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). ItÂs one thing to cherish a relationship in your heart and quite another to cherish it through your deeds. While the rst is nice for you, the second is nice for both of you, and it starts a ripple in the world at large. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Most people who donÂt nd good answers werenÂt looking for them. The opposite example will be you today, as you look for ways to uplift the people around you and nd prime opportunities to do so. TODAYÂS BIRTHDAY (Oct. 29). YouÂll perform good deeds, as always, without hope of reward. But youÂll be rewarded anyway, and publicly if youÂre not careful. Though fame means nothing to you, your stellar reputation will open doors for loved ones. This gets the nances owing, and life gets easier. June brings a big celebration. Gemini and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 19, 7, 26 and 41.

Movie guide: Capsule listings LOS ANGELES (AP) Â„ Eva Longoria and Gina Rodriguez will be among those honored at next monthÂs ALMA awards. Wilmer Valderrama is host of the celebration of Latino achievements in American entertainment and media. Activists Samantha Fuentes and Jamie Margolin also will be honored. Fuentes survived the Parkland, Florida, school shooting, and Margolin founded the Zero Hour movement to address climate change. Rodriguez, star of TVÂs ÂJane the Virgin,ÂŽ will share the awards spotlight with the showÂs cast. The Nov. 4 ALMA ceremony is airing live at 8 p.m. Eastern on sibling TV channels Fuse and FM. Performances by Ally Brooke and Amara La Negra will be featured. In a statement Friday, host Valderrama said Latino achievements and contributions need to be spotlighted more than ever at what he called a ÂcriticalÂŽ time. The ALMAs Â„ American Latino Media Arts Awards Â„ are back after a three-year hiatus in time for the 50th anniversary of UnidosUS, previously known as National Council of La Raza. UnidosUS is the nationÂs largest Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization. In 1995 it created the ALMAs as a way to promote fair, accurate and balanced portrayals of Latinos in the entertainment industry. Fuse Media made a multi-year agreement to become the exclusive multiplatform media home of the ALMAs. LONGORIA By JAKE COYLEAP FILM WRITERNEW YORK Â„ Michael Meyers Â„ or is it Jamie Lee Curtis? Â„ canÂt be stopped. ÂHalloweenÂŽ dominated the North American box ofÂ“ ce for the second straight weekend, carving up an estimated $32 million in ticket sales. The top four Â“ lms were all unchanged at the North American box ofÂ“ ce, according to Sunday estimates, as Hollywood left ÂHalloweenÂŽ to dominate the pre-trick-ortreating weekend. The sequel to John CarpenterÂs 1978 original, starring the 59-yearold Curtis as Laurie Strode, last week notched the biggest opening ever for a Â“ lm with a female lead older than 55. The Blumhouse Productions Â“ lm, distributed by Universal Pictures, is already one of the highest grossing slasher Â“ lms ever, with $126.7 million in ticket sales (plus another $45.6 million international) on just a $10 million budget. ÂHalloween,ÂŽ directed by David Gordon Green, slid a relatively modest 58 percent Â„ especially good for a horror release Â„ after setting a record for an October debut last weekend. Bradley CooperÂs lauded ÂA Star Is BornÂŽ remained in second place with $14 million in its fourth weekend. The Â“ lm, starring Cooper and Lady Gaga, has thus far grossed $148.7 million domestically, while proving an equally strong seller overseas for Warner Bros. ItÂs made $104.6 million internationally. SonyÂs superhero spinoff ÂVenomÂŽ also stuck in third with $10.8 million in its fourth weekend. The comic-book adaptation, starring Tom Hardy, has grossed $504.8 million worldwide. That trio of ÂHalloween,ÂŽ ÂÂVenomÂŽ and ÂA Star Is BornÂŽ has driven the October box ofÂ“ ce to a new high. With a few days to go, monthly ticket sales have already surpassed the record of $757.1 million from 2014, according to comScore, with $789.9 million in sales in October Â„ traditionally a fairly sleepy month in movie theaters. The submarine thriller ÂHunter Killer,ÂŽ was deepsixed with $6.7 million. The Lionsgate release and Millennium production, stars Gerard Butler, Gary Oldman and Common. Like previous Butler-led action Â“ lms like ÂDen of Thieves,ÂŽ ÂÂGeostorm,ÂŽ ÂÂLondon Has FallenÂŽ and ÂGods of Egypt,ÂŽ ÂÂHunter KillerÂŽ received poor reviews (36 percent ÂfreshÂŽ on Rotten Tomatoes). But those Â“ lms also fared far better abroad than in the U.S., something ÂHunter KillerÂŽ will hope to repeat. Other films in nationwide release also struggled to come anywhere close to the strong holdovers. After a promising limited release last weekend, Jonah HillÂs directorial debut, the coming-of-age skateboarding drama ÂMid90s,ÂŽ took in a mediocre $3 million 1,206 theaters for A24. Pure FlixÂs Christian war film drama ÂIndivisibleÂŽ took in $1.6 million on 830 screens. ÂJohnny English Strikes Again,ÂŽ the third film in the 15-year-old Rowan Atkinson comedy franchise, opened with a mere $1.6 million, though it, too, was designed with more of an international focus. (ItÂs already earned $107.7 million overseas.) The long-delayed ÂLondon Fields,ÂŽ starring Amber Heard, notched one of the worst openings in years, grossing a minuscule $160,000 from 613 theaters. The film had been tied up for three years in legal disputes, including a suit between Heard and producers over nudity in the Â“ lm. (ÂLondon FieldsÂŽ sported a 0 percent ÂfreshÂŽ rating from Rotten Tomatoes.) One new bright spot was Luca GuadagninoÂs remake of the horror classic ÂSuspiria.ÂŽ Opening in just two theaters, it debuted with a very strong per-screen average of $89,903 for Amazon Studios, a good start for GuadagninoÂs follow-up to the Oscar-winning ÂCall Me By Your Name.ÂŽ His ÂSuspiriaÂŽ has been somewhat divisive among critics (69 percent ÂfreshÂŽ on Rotten Tomatoes). Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday also are included. Final domestic Â“ gures will be released Monday. 1. ÂHalloween,ÂŽ $32 million ($25.6 million international). 2. ÂA Star Is Born,ÂŽ $14.1 million ($17.6 million international). 3. ÂVenom,ÂŽ $10.8 million ($17.3 million international). 4. ÂGoosebumps 2,ÂŽ $7.5 million ($10.3 million international). 4. ÂHunter Killer,ÂŽ $6.7 million ($3.2 million international). 6. ÂThe Hate U Give,ÂŽ $5.1 million ($1.2 million international). 7. ÂFirst Man,ÂŽ $4.9 million ($6.3 million international). 8. ÂSmallfoot,ÂŽ $4.8 million ($17.3 million international). 9. ÂNight School,ÂŽ $3.3 million. 10.

Overcoming the tragic loss of her personal coach, a debilitating diagnosis and having to transfer schools, Southworth is playing the best golf of her career. She shot an 81 last Monday to post the top individual qualifying score in Region 7. ÂHer consistency is the number one thing that has improved,ÂŽ Lemon Bay head coach Darrell Roach said. ÂBeing able to handle adversity is really what sets her apart from other players.ÂŽ Averaging a score of 39 over nine holes this season, Southworth also claimed the county and district titles and has established herself as the best female golfer in the area. ÂOver my 24 years, sheÂs easily in the top three (that IÂve coached),ÂŽ Roach said. ÂSheÂs right there. The biggest thing is her mental game and her ability to manage the course. If she has a bad shot, it doesnÂt turn into a triple bogey like a lot of the players. A bad shot to her is something to overcome and becomes a bogey at worst.ÂŽ Southworth said her parents threw her into several sports at a young age Â„ basketball, tee ball and soccer Â… to name a few. But she was only six when she made her choice. ÂIt was when we were watching a tour event on TV and I saw Tiger Woods,ÂŽ Southworth said. ÂTigerÂs my favorite Â… and I threw down a pillow and I pretended to put the ball on a tee and I took a swing. My dad freaked out and went to grab my mom and IÂm pretty sure it was that summer that they got me in a golf program. IÂve loved it ever since.ÂŽ Southworth player regularly from that point on. However, her journey isnÂt as innocuous as her start. ÂI have A.D.D. (Attention Deficit Disorder) really, really bad,ÂŽ Meadow said. ÂWhen I was in elementary school, I could sit there and hear the lights, I could hear the fans, I could hear people talking on the other side of the room. I could hear everything and I couldnÂt focus to save my life. The thing with A.D.D. is that you over-focus on everything.ÂŽ Meadow recalled stories from her childhood when she would ignore the people around her in order to stay focused on a task. ÂI hope they didnÂt think IÂm rude,ÂŽ she joked. Southworth never used her diagnosis as a crutch. Instead, she turned a blemish into an asset. She often refuses to leave a green until she figures out why she missed a putt and subsequently figures out how to make it. Her condition has facilitated a passion for art, something that she sees as a potential career in the future. Southworth paints regularly. Her most recent canvas is a metal car hood, one she has been painting in sections since the summer. ÂItÂs so cool,ÂŽ said Southworth. Have I doubted the Tarpons so far this season? Maybe. ItÂs mostly because I hadnÂt seen them live. IÂd heard they were good, but I wasnÂt sure. All of that changed on Friday when they overcame a 14-point hole on the road against a talented Port Charlotte team. My gut feeling after the game? Watch out. The Tarpons showed poise and grit after falling behind in a hostile environment with a booming 5,000-plus crowd surrounding them. In the Â“ rst quarter, the defense couldnÂt quell the PiratesÂ surge as Port Charlotte moved the ball on the ground with ease. Port Charlotte got on the board twice in the quarter with a 38-yard run from JaÂnyrein Washington and an 6-yard draw from Marc Jean-Louis. That score held until the have when Tarpons coach Binky Waldrop had to make a tough call. Was he going to stick with his sophomore backup quarterback or risk re-injury of his starter Alex Muse. Charlotte didnÂt need this win, but boy did they want it. Senior quarterback Alex Muse came in on the Â“ rst drive of the second half after pacing the sidelines for the Â“ rst two quarters. He wasted no time as the Tarpons scored on the second play from scrimmage on a jet sweep from Ashar Thomas. The Tarpons outscored the Pirates 21-0 in the second half and outgained them 321-61. Muse Â“ nished 8 for 10 for 205 yards and two touchdowns. Port Charlotte was down some defenders and started a heap of youngsters. But IÂm still somewhat confused on how that game Â” ipped so quickly. So what does this all mean? Well, Â“ rst off it means that Port Charlotte is virtually eliminated from the playoffs. I say virtually because there may be some crazy scenario that gets them in, but I donÂt see it happening. As for the Tarpons, they are one of the more complete teams IÂve seen this season. They have a stud offensive line with Â“ ve big and physical seniors. They boast a strong, triple-threat running game anchored by senior Jayden Grant. Muse, who didnÂt run much with fear of hurting his injured shoulder despite being a strong dual threat, proved he could stay composed and make timely throws when needed. TheyÂre defense can make a stop when needed and they have a coach thatÂs been around since long before I was born, IÂm sure. And combined they are mentally stable and composed. ItÂs a recipe for a deep playoff run. TheyÂve been tested multiple times and theyÂve answered all but once. TheyÂve spent most of the the season as this big question mark for me because I just didnÂt know. But Friday they passed the eye test.

Thanks to his defense, it didnÂt. The Eagles held onto a 24-18 victory at Wembley Stadium on Sunday after the Jacksonville Jaguars were twice held to a field goal in the fourth quarter, and failed to convert on fourth down with 3:41 remaining. ÂWe finished it,ÂŽ said Wentz, who threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns, all to different players. ÂAt the end of the day, we finished it. We still didnÂt finish the way we wanted offensively. We had a chance to seal the deal but went three-and-out, and the defense stepped up. So I think at the end of the day, we finished well this week.ÂŽ Philadelphia (4-4) surrendered a 17-point lead in the final quarter of a loss to the Carolina Panthers a week earlier, and lost in overtime to the Tennessee Titans on Sept. 30 despite holding a seven-point advantage. Although the Eagles failed to pick up a first down when they got the ball back with 6:52 remaining Â„ and rookie running back Josh Adams nearly fumbled on the first play, if not for the call being overturned on replay review Â„ they otherwise converted 7 of 12 thirddown opportunities. Jacksonville entered the fourth quarter down 17-12 after a failed 2-point conversion, and a pair of field goals by Josh Lambo kept them within six points even after the Eagles extended the lead on a 5-yard touchdown reception by tight end Zach Ertz. Blake Bortles, restored as the starter despite being pulled in a loss to the Houston Texans a week earlier, ran for 4 yards on fourth down with 4:26 left to prolong what would be the JaguarsÂ final drive. But he could not connect with Donte Moncrief on fourth-and-2 four plays later to seal the fate for Jacksonville (3-5).By JOE KAYAP SPORTS WRITERCINCINNATI (AP) Â„ Jessie Bates returned Jameis WinstonÂs fourth interception for a touchdown Sunday, and Randy Bullock kicked a 44-yard Â“ eld goal on the Â“ nal play that sent the Cincinnati Bengals to a 37-34 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who now have a question at quarterback. Winston was benched after matching his career high with four interceptions. Ryan Fitzpatrick rallied the Buccaneers (3-4) to a 34-34 tie with a pair of touchdown passes, including his 18-yard toss with 1:05 left. The Bengals (5-3) recovered from their second-worst drubbing under Marvin Lewis and pulled it out with their only scoring drive in the second half. Andy Dalton had completions of 23 and 9 yards to A.J. Green that got them in Â“ eld goal range. Tampa Bay has allowed at least 30 points in Â“ ve games and changed defensive coordinators two weeks ago. This time, Winston was the BucsÂ biggest problem. He threw four interceptions for the third time in his career, including one directly to Bates that the safety returned for CincinnatiÂs fourth defensive touchdown of the season. Winston went to the bench, and Ryan Fitzpatrick pulled Tampa Bay even. Fitzpatrick threw a 72-yard touchdown to Mike Evans, his Â“ fth TD pass of at least 50 yards this season Inspired by tragedy TIM KERN Lady Manta Rays golfer Meadow Southworth has established herself as a formidable force.

The Cleveland Cavaliers Â“red their coach on Sunday and named assistant Larry Drew interim head coach. The Cavaliers are off to a 0-6 start without James, who left Cleveland this summer for the second time in his career and signed with the Los Angeles Lakers as a free agent. Lue guided the Cavaliers to an NBA title in 2016 Â„ ClevelandÂs Â“rst pro sports championship since 1964 Â„ and helped the team to four straight Finals. ÂWe thank him for the many ways he has contributed to our success, wish him the best and he will always be remembered for leading a very special Cavs team back against the odds to win the title in 2016,ÂŽ general manager Koby Altman said in a statement. ÂThis is a different team equation, though, and one that we felt needed a different voice and approach that required this change.ÂŽ Assistant coach Damon Jones also was Â“red. A former Cavaliers player, Jones had been promoted during the offseason. Lue issued a statement in which he thanked team owner Dan Gilbert, former general manager David GrifÂ“n and Altman. ÂMy time here in Cleveland was truly special,ÂŽ Lue added. ÂI am very grateful for the dedication, sacriÂ“ce and support of all the players on our team, the tremendous coaches IÂve worked with and of course, our incredible fans.ÂŽ Players appeared to be caught off-guard by LueÂs dismissal. All-Star Kevin Love, who has missed the past two games with a sore left foot, posted a message to Lue on Instagram ÂYou helped me see the big picture,ÂŽ Love wrote. ÂLife changing experiences and teaching points. Nothing but love and admiration. Know we will work towards something greater together again. THANK YOU.ÂŽ Love also posted a photo of him and Lue hugging on the court at Oracle Arena after the Cavaliers rallied from a 3-1 deÂ“cit and won Game 7 of the 2016 Finals over Golden State. James also expressed gratitude toward his former coach on Twitter ÂT Lue thanks for the memories and more importantly our partnership bringing a (championship) to that deserved city/fan base,ÂŽ James said. ÂU know how to Â“nd me.ÂŽ The 41-year-old Lue has three years left on a Â“veyear, $35 million contract he signed after Cleveland won the title. He went 12883 in three-plus seasons as coach. Drew Â“lled in when Lue stepped aside for 10 games last season while dealing with chest pains, insomnia and anxiety. He came to Cleveland as an assistant in 2014 after serving as head coach for the Milwaukee Bucks (2013-2014) and Atlanta Hawks (2010-2013). The Cavaliers were hoping to remain competitive without James, but theyÂve been overmatched. They dropped their sixth straight game on Saturday night to Indiana and are off to their worst start since losing their Â“rst seven games in the 199596 season. Cleveland has trailed by at least 16 points in all six losses and the club has yet to lead in the second half. The Cavs have also been plagued by poor defense and communication issues, and has looked disorganized at times. The Cavaliers host Atlanta on Tuesday night. Led by rookie Trae YoungÂs 35 points, the Hawks clobbered the Cavs by 22 points in ClevelandÂs home opener last week. The Athletic Â“rst reported LueÂs Â“ring. NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers NHL: Tampa Bay Lightning NHL: Roundup NBA: RoundupCavaliers fire coach Tyronn Lue after 0-6 start By NICK KELLYTAMPA BAY TIMESAs the Lightning returns to Tampa after a Â“vegame road trip, so too will forward Danick Martel. Martel will rejoin the Lightning after a four-game conditioning assignment with AHL Syracuse, the Lightning announced Sunday. Martel tallied an assist during the four games. He did not play in any games while starting the season with the Lightning, so the stint in Syracuse gave Martel the chance to get some games in while the Lightning spent Â“ve games on the road. The Lightning claimed Martel off waivers from the Flyers on Sept. 22 after he played in four NHL games the previous season. Now having played in 203 AHL games, Martel has scored 68 goals and tallied 121 points. He rejoins a Lightning team that could be without left wing Ondrej Palat for a short period of time. Palat is day-to-day after blocking a shot with his foot during the road trip.Lightning recalls forward Danick Martel from AHL Syracuse CHICAGO (AP) Â„ Connor McDavid scored 53 seconds into overtime to lift the Edmonton Oilers to their third straight win, 2-1 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday. After two Blackhawks skaters got caught deep in their zone, McDavid Â“nished a 2-on-1 break, taking a cross-ice feed from Leon Draisaitl and beating Cam Ward from the left circle for his eighth goal. ChicagoÂs Brent Seabrook and EdmontonÂs Zack Kassian scored in the Â“rst period. ChicagoÂs leading scorer, Patrick Kane, assisted on SeabrookÂs goal to extend his point streak to six games. Cam Talbot stopped 31 shots as Edmonton improved to 3-1 in overtime games.KINGS 4, RANGERS 3LOS ANGELES (AP) Â„ Alec Martinez scored with 55 seconds remaining, and Los Angeles stopped a six-game skid. Martinez brought the puck from behind the net into the offensive zone and Â“red a wrist shot through the legs of Brendan Smith and past New York goaltender Henrik Lundqvist for his Â“rst goal of the season. Ilya Kovalchuk had a goal and two assists, Trevor Lewis scored and Jack Campbell made 22 saves in place of the injured Jonathan Quick for the Kings. Dustin Brown, making his season debut after breaking a Â“nger in Los AngelesÂ Â“nal preseason game, also scored. Vladislav Namestnikov and Tony DeAngelo each had a goal and an assist and Ryan Spooner also scored for the Rangers, who are winless in Â“ve road games. Lundqvist made 36 saves.RED WINGS 4, STARS 2DETROIT (AP) Â„ Anthony Mantha helped Detroit earn its Â“rst home win of the season. Mantha, Tyler Bertuzzi, defenseman Jonathan Ericsson and Justin Abdelkader scored for Detroit, which had been 0-3-1 at Little Caesars Arena. Dylan Larkin had two assists and Jonathan Bernier stopped 28 shots for his Â“rst win as a Red Wing, after signing as a free agent in July. Gemel Smith and defenseman John Klingberg scored for Dallas. Ben Bishop made 19 saves.ISLANDERS 2, HURRICANES 1RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Â„ Anders Lee had a goal and an assist, and New York beat Carolina. Ryan Pulock scored the go-ahead goal late in the second period and Josh Bailey had two assists for the Islanders, who have earned points in three straight games. Playing eight of their Â“rst 11 games on the road, theyÂve won two in a row for the Â“rst time. Teuvo Teravainen scored for Carolina while Sebastian Aho matched a pair of club records with an assist Â„ giving him points and assists in all 11 games this season, the longest active streak in the league. Thomas Greiss, who stopped 90 of the 91 shots he faced in his last two games against Carolina, made 38 saves while earning his Â“rst victory since a 2-1 win in the opener on Oct. 4. NEW ORLEANS (AP) Â„ Ricky Rubio had 28 points and 12 assists, Rudy Gobert had 25 points and 14 rebounds, and the Utah Jazz became the first team this season to beat the New Orleans Pelicans, 132-111 on Saturday night. 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. Rubio, who set up several of GobertÂs dunks with alley-oop lobs, was averaging just 6 points coming in and hadnÂt scored more than 13 in a game. Nikola Mirotic scored 25 points for the Pelicans.SPURS 110, LAKERS 106SAN ANTONIO (AP) Â„ DeMar DeRozan had 30 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists and the Spurs rallied in the fourth quarter, overcoming 35 points and 11 rebounds from LeBron James to beat Los Angeles. The SpursÂ first lead came at 93-91 with 10 minutes remaining when DeRozan laid in his own miss after beating three Lakers to the rebound. San Antonio would built the lead to eight points before James cut it to 106-105 with four straight points an assist to Josh Hart on a 3-pointer. DeRozan responded with a fadeaway jumper on Hart with 15.9 seconds remaining to help preserve the lead and the eventual win. Rudy Gay added 16 points and LaMarcus Aldridge had 15 points as the Spurs beat the Lakers for the second time in a week.CELTICS 109, PISTONS 89DETROIT (AP) Â„ Jaylen Brown scored 19 points, Marcus Morris added 18 and Boston handed Detroit its first loss of the season. Andre Drummond had 18 points and eight rebounds, and Stanley Johnson scored a season-high 16 for Detroit. The Pistons won their first four games of the season for the first time since 2008-09. The Celtics opened up a 103-74 lead with 5:15 left to play, cruising to a win in the first of consecutive games between the teams.BUCKS 113, MAGIC 91MILWAUKEE (AP) Â„ Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 21 points and Khris Middleton had 18 and Milwaukee beat Orlando to improve to 6-0, one shy of the record set by the 197172 team.

The Heat let a 19-point lead slip away entirely, and then found themselves trailing twice in the fourth quarter before outscoring Portland 19-7 in the final 3:52. DragicÂs 3-pointer with just under a minute left all but sealed the win for Miami, putting the Heat up nine. Damian Lillard had 42 points for Portland.BULLS 97, HAWKS 85ATLANTA (AP) Â„ Zach LaVine scored 27 points and Chicago was 7 of 10 from 3-point range in the fourth quarter to pull away from Atlanta. Jabari Parker scored half of his 18 points in the fourth quarter for the Bulls. Rookie Wendell Carter Jr. had 10 points and 10 rebounds while playing his first NBA game in his hometown. Taurean Prince led Atlanta with 16 points.GRIZZLIES 117, SUNS 96MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Â„ Marc Gasol scored 19 points, Mike Conley added 18 and Memphis took a big lead in the first half before coasting past Phoenix. MarShon Brooks matched Conley with 18 points, Garrett Temple added 15, and Wayne Selden 14. Deandre Ayton, the top pick in last summerÂs draft, scored 24 points Â„ tops for his young season Â„ and had eight rebounds.

The Sun | Monday, October 29, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3 ÂIÂm really slow and meticulous. But I canÂt wait to finish it.ÂŽ Slow and meticulous Â„ the characteristics of a precise and cerebral golfer. ÂI like to plan out shots, so when it comes to painting, I have an idea and I donÂt always know how IÂm going to do it, but I know IÂm going to do it,ÂŽ Meadow said. ÂSometimes I figure it out along the way, and I kind of do the same on the golf course. They both tie together a lot.ÂŽ While she headlines an impressive Lemon Bay girlsÂ golf team, Southworth wasnÂt always a Manta Ray. She attended Island Village Montessori school for 12 years, playing her first two seasons of high school golf for North Port. But when Island Village was force to shut down their 30-student high school program, Southworth chose Lemon Bay since it was about half the size of North Port. The transition to a new school as a junior wasnÂt the easiest. ÂThe first time I met the girls on the team, I felt kind of weird,ÂŽ said Southworth. ÂOne of the first times out, I was playing with two girls who I hadnÂt played with yet. One of them said, ÂOh no, I have to play with her? SheÂs scary.Â But now, weÂre great. I think itÂs really funny how people think IÂm intimidating when people first meet me and I donÂt mean to come off that way.ÂŽ After all Â… she points out Â… how scary can she be with a taco truck lunch box? SouthworthÂs food carrier of choice last year was a lunch box shaped as a bouquet of French fries. But as Southworth heads into her final and most important tournament of her high school career, she does it with a level of grief she never anticipated. After receiving instruction from her coaches at Capri Isles in her youth, Southworth got connected with area pro Peggy Kirsch. A record-setting professional who played in nine LPGA U.S. Opens, Kirsch brought Southworth with her to each course she worked for Â… from Herron Creek in North Port, to Sable Trace and eventually to The Cove in Englewood. ÂShe was amazing,ÂŽ Southworth said of her five years with Kirsch. ÂShe taught me a lot about course management, conditions and how to adapt to different circumstances.ÂŽ But on July 20, Kirsch lost control of her white Cadillac and struck an oncoming truck in her native New Hampshire, passing away suddenly at the age of 60. ÂI think about everything sheÂs told me when IÂm on the course,ÂŽ Southworth said. ÂI have a book and I would write down things that she told me. We also took a bunch of videos on stuff for me to remember to work on. She helped me a lot.ÂŽ Southworth said she is dedicating her senior season to Kirsch. After playing one of the best rounds of her career to win the county championship, Meadow was overjoyed while leaving the course and wanted to share her success with the person who was most responsible. Even though she knew the text would go unanswered, Southworth sent ÂI won!ÂŽ to KirschÂs phone number. ÂI know that she wouldÂve been ecstatic and over the moon that I played as well as I did,ÂŽ Southworth said. ÂNo matter how bad I played, she would always be so supportive. I was really glad that I did that this year, not just for me but for her.ÂŽ Southworth hopes to take her game to the next level, setting her sights on both college golf and eventually the professional ranks. ÂWell sheÂs been the leader all year,ÂŽ Lemon Bay head coach Darrell Roach said. ÂHer work ethic is second to none and her ability speaks for itself. That doesnÂt happen by accident. We havenÂt have any pros (at Lemon Bay) untilÂƒÂŽ Roach looked at Southworth, knowing that if anyone is going to do it Â… itÂs going to be the painter with the taco truck lunch box.INSPIREDFROM PAGE 1B There are high expectations for Lemon BayÂs Meadow Southworth at States, after capturing all-county and district honors.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Monday, October 29, 2018By MARC TOPKINTAMPA BAY TIMESLOS ANGELES Â„ My premise going into the World Series was to write how understandably hard it would be for Rays fans to root for Nathan Eovaldi. Even though they knew he was likely to be traded since he was a free agent after the season and that dealing him in July wouldnÂt impact whatever slim chances the Rays had to re-sign him. His medical history made him somewhat of a risk. They got back a promising prospect in lefty Jalen Beeks, who should be pitching in Tampa Bay a lot longer than Eovaldi would. But Âƒ but Âƒ but Âƒ He was pitching for the Red Sox. The rival Red Sox. The NSFW adjective-ofyour-choice Red Sox. So any sense of appreciation for Eovaldi would be negated, or at least considerably conÂ”icted, by seeing the Red Sox win again, a fourth title in 15 years. But then Friday happened. By now you have probably heard, and hopefully read, about what Eovaldi did in Game 3. In the longest World Series game in history, 18 innings and 7 hours, 20 minutes, delivering one of the most remarkable performances, working the Â“nal six-plus innings of the 3-2 walkoff loss to the Dodgers. ÂThe most incredible pitching performance IÂve ever seen,ÂŽ said veteran Boston starter Rick Porcello said, after wiping away tears. Eovaldi had already pitched the eighth inning in Game 1 on Tuesday and Game 2 on Wednesday, in the Â“rst back-to-back outings of a career spent primarily as a starter. He was supposed to be chilling Friday ahead of his Game 4 Saturday start. But there he was, warming up to come in for the 12th inning, and insisting on staying out there for every frame after that, throwing 97 pitches, hitting the high 90s with his fastball, every single one of the highest leverage with the game on the line. Tell me now how you canÂt root for this guy, even if he ends up helping those Red Sox to another title, as they took a 2-1 Series lead into Game 4. ÂThat was nothing short of incredible,ÂÂ Sox ace Chris Sale said Saturday. ÂI donÂt know if thereÂs anybody thatÂs ever done what heÂs done, given the scenario. ÂWeÂre in Game 1, Game 2 and Game 3 of the World Series, freezing cold weather in Boston, worse the second night than the Â“rst night. And then we have a six-hour travel day, where thereÂs not a whole lot of movement. And then he threw seven innings in the most high-leverage game of the year. ÂCheck the book, I donÂt know, but thatÂs incredible by any standard. I donÂt care who you are, what youÂve seen, thatÂs impressive.ÂÂ There was just as much praise coming from the other clubhouse, where the comparisons under discussion were San FranciscoÂs Madison Bumgarner and Dodgers Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax. ÂI appreciate everything about what he did (Friday) night,ÂÂ Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. ÂIÂm on the other side, but IÂm a baseball fan, IÂm a sports fan. And when you see people like that perform at the highest level and to stay focused, appreciating that that was three out of four (days pitching) for him, to go 90-plus pitches, hold his stuff, use his mix, and take three at-bats Âƒ and still keep going and give his team a chance to win, those are moments that donÂt come by very often.ÂÂ Even more so given the backstory. Eovaldi, 28, returned to the majors in late May after spending all of 2017 with the Rays rehabbing from a second Tommy John elbow surgery, then the unexpected late March setback of arthroscopic surgery to remove bone chips from the elbow. His two months went well, leading the Rays to logically deal him in late July, the parting one of mutual admiration. He still praises them for the Âtremendous jobÂŽ they did to get him back and how patient they were; Rays players and ofÂ“cials rave about the inÂ”uence and example he set with his remarkable work ethic and approach. (Blake Snell tweeted during FridayÂs game, ÂLetÂs go Eovaldi!!!!!!! #mydawgÂŽ) Red Sox manager Alex Cora knew they were getting a hard worker, great clubhouse guy and pitcher with ÂamazingÂŽ stuff Â„ from texting Rays pitching coach Kyle Snyder right after the deal. Now he has seen it play out, never more than Friday. That Eovaldi was maybe the only one not impressed with what he did Â„ ÂI donÂt know, I just try to go out there,ÂŽ he said Â„ was so Â“tting. After committing to use Eovaldi for the 12th inning, Cora Â“gured he would get a couple of innings and then start checking on him. Each inning, Eovaldi insisted he was okay, wanting to go back out. ÂLet me Â“nish this,ÂÂ he pleaded. Eovaldi did, albeit in a losing effort, allowing a home run to Max Muncy to lead off the 18th and feeling miserable about it. Eovaldi has done so much, and he likely made himself a lot more money wherever he signs, having fun and, most importantly, feeling good along the way. A couple of daysÂ rest, at the least, seems obvious now, right? Cora saw him Saturday morning at the team breakfast: ÂHe said heÂs ready to go tonight.ÂÂ Of course he was. How can you not root for that guy, no matter what jersey heÂs wearing?The stuff of legends MLB: Boston Red SoxNathan EovaldiÂs Game 3 World Series performance AP PHOTOBoston Red Sox starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi throws against the Los Angeles Dodgers during the 12th inning in Game 3 of the World Series baseball game in Los Angeles.

A ninth title at FedererÂs hometown event in Basel, where he was once a ball boy, matched the nine he has won at the Halle grass-court event in Germany. He closed the gap on the all-time singles titles list to Jimmy Connors, who leads with 109. Federer blew kisses to a 12,000 crowd in the renovated St. Jakobhalle, which now gives BaselÂs local hero a bigger main stage. ÂItÂs been a magical week. It was dream run for me,ÂŽ Federer said in his on-court acceptance speech, before his fansÂ ovation brought tears welling in his eyes. ÂTo come through and win again here in my hometown, never knowing if this might be your last time ... it obviously means a lot to me and it becomes very emotional,ÂŽ he said later. The top-seeded Swiss rallied from trailing by a service break in each set against the 93rd-ranked Romanian, whose serve was measured at 243 kph (151 mph) in his opening service game. Federer clinched minutes after saving a break point, taking his Â“rst match-point chance when Copil sent a backhand into the net. The title was the 37-year-old FedererÂs Â“rst in more than four months since winning on grass at Stuttgart in June. FedererÂs 151st singles Â“nal on the ATP tour shaped as one of his biggest mismatches by ranking. He has never lost a Â“nal to an opponent ranked below No. 87. Their Â“rst meeting came after Federer amassed 20 Grand Slam singles titles, while Copil has just one career match win at a Grand Slam Â„ in the 2015 Australian Open Â“rst round. The 28-year-old Copil came to Basel with career prize money Â„ $1.67 million Â„ signiÂ“cantly less than Federer earned just for winning the Australian Open in January. His second career runner-up Â“nish, both this season, earned almost 210,000 euros ($239,000). Copil, currently ranked No. 93, will rise to a career-best ranking of No. 60 when the new list is published Monday. ÂI would love for it to be the beginning of my career at this level,ÂŽ said Copil, who played his Â“rst tour-level match in 2009. The Â“rst-set tiebreaker was likely to be crucial given CopilÂs career record of 8-52 when losing the opening set in top-tier matches. Federer got a minibreak in the seventh point, being rewarded for solid defense from the baseline when Copil netted an attempted drop shot. After Copil saved two set points with big serves, Federer took the Â“rst on his own serve when his opponent sent a forehand long. Federer celebrated with a shout and a pump of his right Â“st. In the second set, Copil again quickly broke serve and this time held the key Â“fth game when Federer had two break points. It was a brief respite until Federer broke in CopilÂs next service game despite the Romanian ending one long rally with a backhand lob for a winner.Federer wins 99th title, beats Copil in Swiss Indoors finalSHANGHAI (AP) Â„ Xander Schauffele gave the Americans a sweep of the World Golf Championships and quickly put a winless sophomore season behind him. Schauffele made birdie on his Â“nal three holes Sunday, the last one a twoputt birdie from about 30 feet on the par-5 18th hole to beat Tony Finau in a sudden-death playoff and win the HSBC Champions. ÂWhen I was signing my card, I was like, ÂOh, wow. I actually went birdie-birdie to get in the playoff,ÂŽ Schauffele said. ÂI was just in my own world out there.ÂŽ He began the tournament by celebrating his 25th birthday. He ended it with one clutch shot after another in the closing stretch at Sheshan International for a 4-under 68, the lowest score of the Â“nal round, and his Â“rst victory in 13 months. Schauffele won twice in his Â“rst year on the PGA Tour to win rookie of the year. Last season featured high Â“nishes, but only one good chance at winning when he was a runner-up in the British Open at Carnoustie. Now he has three victories, the last two at the Tour Championship to end the 2017 season and now a World Golf Championship. Finau, who started the Â“nal round with a three-shot lead in his bid for a second PGA Tour-sanctioned victory, was ahead by one shot until Schauffele made an 18-foot birdie putt on the par-3 17th, only the fourth player to make birdie on that hole Sunday. Defending champion Justin Rose missed a 10foot birdie chance on the 17th and went to the Â“nal hole two shots behind. Trying to make eagle, he went from the bunker to the rough to over the green and into the water, making a bogey for a 72 to Â“nish four shots behind. That meant Brooks Koepka, who closed with a 69 and tied for 16th, stayed at No. 1 in the world for at least another week. Then, it was a battle between the two Americans. Finau faced a risky shot from his ball sitting high in the rough by going for the green. It narrowly cleared the water, leaving him an eagle putt from about 35 feet that he placed to a few feet from the cup. SchauffeleÂs second shot into the par-5 18th landed on the putting surface and rolled just over the back as the 25-year-old American said, ÂSit!ÂŽ six times before it settled just off the green. He ran his eagle putt 3 feet by and made that for birdie. He and Finau Â“nished at 14-under 274. In the playoff, Schauffele again hit the fairway and hit a 5-iron to the middle of the green. Finau went into the face of the bunker on the left, had no choice but to lay up, and his third shot was 20 feet on the fringe. He missed his birdie putt to extend the playoff. ÂDeÂ“nitely feel like I let one get away,ÂŽ said Finau, whose only PGA Tour victory was at the Puerto Rico Open two years ago. ÂXander played incredible golf today. It was playing tough out there. He posted a number and made birdie on a playoff hole when it counted. Hats off to him. He played nicely today and deserved to win.ÂŽ The United States becomes the Â“rst country to have four players win the four World Golf Championships. Phil Mickelson won the Mexico Championship, Bubba Watson won the Dell Match Play and Justin Thomas won the Bridgestone Invitational. The Americans also won all four WGCs in 2013 when Tiger Woods won two of them, Matt Kuchar won the Match Play and Dustin Johnson won in Shanghai. Americans now have won 41 of the 69 events since the World Golf Championships series began in 1999. Woods has won 18 of them. Rose was trying to join Woods as the only players to successfully defend a WGC title Â„ Woods has done it eight times Â„ and birdied the 13th and 14th holes to pull within one shot of the lead. But he misÂ“red from the fairway on the 15th into a bunker and made bogey, and he couldnÂt catch up. He needed to Â“nish second alone to replace Koepka at No. 1 in the world. ÂTough day for everybody,ÂŽ Rose said, alluding to only three players shooting in the 60s in the Â“nal round. ÂYou just look at the scoreboard. Seems like everyone fell apart. It was a three-horse race all day. It was hard to keep the mistakes off the card completely today.ÂŽ He gets another chance to go back to No. 1 when he defends his title in the Turkish Airlines Open next week. RoseÂs third shot to the 18th nicked SchauffeleÂs ball, sending both balls down the slope and into the water. Schauffele was allowed to replace his ball without penalty, though it was an indication how close his shot was from trickling down the hill and into the water, which would have cost him the tournament. Schauffele, under strong consideration but left off the Ryder Cup team as a captainÂs pick, moved to No. 12 in the world. Kiradech Aphibarnrat (71) and Andrew Putnam (72) tied for fourth. Putnam was making his debut in the World Golf Championships. TENNIS: ATP Tour GOLF: World Golf Schauffele wins HSBC for US sweep of World ChampionshipsTAOYUAN, Taiwan (AP) Â„ Nelly Korda shot a 4-under 68 to win the Taiwan Championship on Sunday for her Â“rst LPGA tour title. Korda Â„ the younger sister of Jessica Korda, who has won Â“ve titles on the LPGA tour Â„ had an eagle on the par-5 sixth hole and added two more birdies at the Ta Shee Golf and Country Club to Â“nish at 13-under 275. She was two strokes ahead of Minjee Lee, who shot a bogey-free 66. ÂTruthfully, I cannot put it into words,ÂŽ Korda said. ÂIt still hasnÂt hit. ItÂs deÂ“nitely one of the best days of my entire life. I can Â“nally check that off of my list, winning an LPGA event, something that I dreamed of ever since I started playing.ÂŽ Korda got her Â“rst birdie of the day on the par-4 No. 4 before the eagle on the sixth hole. ÂI was hitting it really well on the front nine,ÂŽ Korda said. ÂI mean, I played really solid. No. 4 is deÂ“nitely probably one of the hardest holes on this golf course because you have such a long approach into the green.ÂŽ Ryann OÂToole carded seven birdies Â„ including four of the last Â“ve holes Â„ against a pair of bogeys for a 67 and sole possession of third place at 10-under 278. ÂI just put myself in position and made putts,ÂŽ OÂToole said. ÂI bogeyed the Â“rst hole and I think the best thing I could have done was stay in the moment after that.ÂŽ Carlota Ciganda offset two bogeys with Â“ve birdies for a 69 that left her tied for fourth with Megan Khang (71). Local favorite Wei-Ling Hsu, who held a share of the lead with Korda after the third round, had Â“ve bogeys and closed with a 74 to Â“nish tied for sixth with Lydia Ko (72).Nelly Korda wins Taiwan Championship for 1st LPGA title GOLF: PGA

Howard for an 18-yard touchdown and completing another pass for the conversion. Now, the Bucs have to decide which one will lead the NFLÂs topranked offense. Winston opened the season on a fourgame suspension for violating the NFLÂs personal conduct policy and has thrown for six touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Against the BengalsÂ depleted defense, Winston went 18 of 35 for 276 yards with four interceptions and Â“ve sacks. Fitzpatrick Â“nished 11 of 15 for 194 yards and a passer rating of 154.9. DeSean Jackson caught a 60-yard touchdown pass that moved him ahead of Jerry Rice for the NFL record. He has 24 TDs of at least 60 yards. It also was JacksonÂs 29th career TD of at least 50 yards tying Randy Moss for second-most since the 1970 merger behind RiceÂs 36. Cincinnati couldnÂt hold a 27-6 lead set up by a big Â“rst half. Joe Mixon ran for 114 yards in the half and scored on runs of 1 and 8 yards. Tyler Boyd had six catches for 112 yards, including a 9-yard touchdown. The Bengals were coming off a 45-10 loss at Kansas City on Sunday night.Lots of intsWinston has thrown at least two interceptions in Â“ve straight games, tied for the most since 1990. His 13 interceptions over that span are tied with Fitzpatrick for the most in a Â“ve-game stretch over the past Â“ve seasons.InjuriesBuccaneers: RB Ronald Jones II suffered a hamstring injury in the second half. Bengals: G Clint Boling hurt his back late in the Â“rst half. DE Carl Lawson hurt his right knee. CB Dre Kirkpatrick left in the third quarter with an Achilles injury that kept him out of practice.Up nextBuccaneers: Play at Carolina on Sunday, Â“nishing a stretch of four road games out of Â“ve. Bengals: Have their bye week, followed by a home game against the Saints.BUCSFROM PAGE 1ÂThey were on a roll,ÂŽ said Jaguars coach Doug Marrone. ÂThey were getting on third down. We were having a tough time containing the quarterback ... and obviously, we couldnÂt contain the run.ÂŽ The Eagles finished with 395 total yards, their third-highest total this season, against the Jaguars, who entered the game with the leagueÂs second-ranked defense. Philly gained 133 rushing. Jacksonville claimed a 6-3 lead on two field goals by Lambo, including a career-long 57-yard attempt, but saw that disappear by halftime when rookie tight end Dallas Goedert had a 32-yard touchdown reception at the end of the second quarter. A 95-yard drive at the start of the third quarter ended with the Eagles taking a 17-6 lead after running back Wendell Smallwood took a screen pass 32 yards into the end zone, but the Jaguars marched 75 yards over nine plays and found the end zone when Bortles connected with Dede Westbrook under the uprights to trim their deficit to 17-12. That set the stage for the comeback, but the JaguarsÂ inability to get past the goal line despite two trips into the red zone ended their hopes of a fourth consecutive win at Wembley.No blame for bortlesMarrone said that Bortles was not the reason for the JaguarsÂ inability to win. Bortles, who went 24 for 41 with 286 yards and a touchdown, led the team in rushing with 43 yards on eight attempts. ÂHe gave us a chance,ÂŽ Marrone said. ÂHe went out there and gave us a chance. He ran the ball well (and made) quick decisions. I donÂt think we have a problem. I donÂt think heÂs the player that cost us the game. He played well overall. A total team effort.ÂŽLast in londonThe game, played before a record, pro-Eagles crowd of 85,870 fans, was the last of three played at Wembley this season. The Jaguars, who have played at the venue since 2013, have a contract to hold one game there annually through the 2020 season.InjuriesPhiladelphia: RT Lane Johnson injured his left knee on the EaglesÂ opening drive and did not return. LT Jason Peters was evaluated for a concussion late in the second quarter but returned after halftime. OLB Kamu Grugier-Hill left in the first half after an unspecified injury but was able to return, and CB Jalen Mills (foot) was injured a minute into the third quarter and missed the rest of the game. Jacksonville: FS Barry Church was evaluated for a concussion midway through the fourth quarter, but scans were negative. CB Quenton Meeks (knee), starting for the injured A.J. Bouye, left in the fourth quarter. LB Telvin Smith (shoulder) and CB Ronnie Harrison (knee) left the game in the second quarter but returned.Up nextPhiladelphia: Host the Dallas Cowboys on Nov. 11 after a bye week. Jacksonville: Face the Indianapolis Colts on the road on Nov. 11, also after a bye.JAGSFROM PAGE 1By NOAH TRISTERAP SPORTS WRITERFor a second straight year, Florida StateÂs bowl streak is very much in doubt. The Seminoles played in a bowl for a 36th straight season last year, but only after beating LouisianaMonroe in a rescheduled game that enabled Florida State to Â“nish the regular season at 6-6. That game took place after coach Jimbo Fisher had already left for Texas A&M. This year, Florida State (4-4) needs to win two of its Â“nal four games to end the regular season at .500. Although sub-.500 teams have gone to bowls in recent years, itÂs rare. The schedule the rest of the way isnÂt easy for the Seminoles: They face N.C. State, Notre Dame, Boston College and Florida, three of which are currently in the Top 25. HereÂs a list of the 37 teams that are already bowl eligible: Alabama Alabama-Birmingham Army Boise State Boston College Buffalo Central Florida Cincinnati Clemson Florida Florida International Fresno State Georgia Georgia Southern Houston Iowa Kentucky Louisiana Tech LSU Michigan North Texas Notre Dame Ohio State Oklahoma Penn State San Diego State South Florida Syracuse Texas Troy Utah Utah State Virginia Washington Washington State West Virginia Western MichiganBowl Watch: Florida StateÂs streak in jeopardy again AP PHOTOClemson defensive lineman Xavier Kelly, right, sacks Florida State back up quarterback James Blackman in the second half of an NCAA college football game in Tallahassee, Fla. By RICK STROUDTAMPA BAY TIMESDeSean Jackson may want to be traded, but the Bucs arenÂt going to oblige. At least thatÂs what you can draw from the comments by Bucs general manager Jason Licht when asked about an NFL Network report Sunday that Jackson had asked for a trade. Speaking on the Bucs radio network before SundayÂs game at Cincinnati, Licht did not address whether Jackson had indeed asked for a trade. But it doesnÂt sound like one will happen. ÂIÂll say this. DeSean Jackson and I have a great relationship,ÂŽ Licht said. ÂHeÂs one of my favorite people on the team, and Dirk has a great relationship with him and heÂs obviously a terriÂ“c player for us. ÂWeÂre 3-3, weÂre headed into big game today, weÂve got a big stretch of games coming up for us, and we donÂt like to talk about these stories. But I can say that my job and our job here is to Â“eld the best roster that we can to win games, and DeSean is a huge, huge part of that, not just today, but for the rest of the season. Other than that, I donÂt have anything else to add.ÂÂBucs GM Jason Licht: DeSean Jackson will be in Tampa Bay for Ârest of the seasonÂ COLLEGE FOOTBALL NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Myles Jack (44) reacts after sacking Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz (11), right, during the second half of an NFL football game at Wembley stadium in London.

(AP) Â„ When the reigning series champion slipped past him with one lap to go at Martinsville Speedway, Joey Logano Â“gured he had lost his shot at racing for NASCARÂs title. A win would earn Logano one of the four spots in the winnertake-all championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway. So if he didnÂt try something, his chance at a Cup championship might slip away. Logano used an old fashioned bump-andrun on Martin Truex Jr. to Sunday and snatch one of the four tickets to the Â“nale. Truex slid sideways across the Â“nish line and promptly declared Logano wonÂt take his title from him this year. ÂHe may have won the battle, but he ainÂt winning the damn war. IÂm not going to let him win it (the championship.) IÂm going to win it,ÂŽ Truex fumed. Logano took TruexÂs warning in stride. ÂOK. ThatÂs expected,ÂŽ Logano said. ÂThis was our shot, maybe our only shot, so we had to make it happen.ÂŽ Logano was showered in boos and Truex, standing on pit road next to his third-place car, jeered the winner with both thumbs down as Logano was interviewed over the address system. On pit road, Truex crew chief Cole Pearn Jr. had an angry exchange with Logano crew chief Todd Gordon. Nearly 30 minutes later, Pearn still appeared visibly angry. Truex and Pearn are part of Furniture Row Racing, which is shutting down at the end of the season, a year removed from its championship run. Naysayers cast doubt on the No. 78 defending its title with the closure looming, but both driver and crew chief are determined to prove everyone wrong. ÂWith everything weÂve got riding on it, the team closing down, itÂs tough to take,ÂŽ Pearn said of his confrontation with Gordon. ÂI used a few choice words I probably shouldnÂt have. I probably shouldnÂt be around a baseball bat or a jackhammer right now.ÂŽ Logano won the opening race to the third round of the playoffs by using the bumper on his Ford to shove Truex out of his way on the Â“nal lap. The contact caused both cars to wiggle, but TruexÂs slide was nearly sideways while Logano corrected after a swerve and straightened himself out as hurtled across the Â“nish line. ÂIÂm a hard racer, I donÂt think thatÂs a secret to anyone, and we are here to win a championship this year,ÂŽ Logano said. Eight drivers started the day vying for the four spots in the season-Â“nale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Now one of the slots is gone, to Logano of Team Penske, and NASCARÂs so-called ÂBig 3ÂŽ is still trying to lock down a berth. Truex, along with Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch, dominated the regular season and as a trio were expected to make it to Miami to race for the winner-take-all title. Instead, Truex wound up third. ÂWe should be in victory lane right now,ÂŽ said Truex. ÂI was next to him for six laps, I never knocked him out of the way. We were going to race hard for it, in my book. I cleared him fair and square. We werenÂt even banging doors. ÂAnd he just drove into the back of me and knocked me out of the way. Yeah, itÂs short track racing. But what goes around comes around.ÂŽ Logano was aware how he won was not popular but his eyes are on the bigger prize. ÂHe raced really clean and I laid the bumper to him. I donÂt expect him to be happy,ÂŽ Logano said. ÂWeÂve got to do what weÂve got to do, and heÂs got to do what heÂs got to do, and weÂll hash it out one way or the other. ThatÂs NASCAR racing. ThatÂs what the grassroots are, thatÂs what fans come here to see. Some may not like it.ÂŽ Logano led a race-high 309 of the 500 laps but had to contend with Penske teammate Brad Keselowski in the waning laps. That gave time for Truex, whose Toyota failed inspection prior to the race so he started 31st, to close in on the leaders. Truex first got past Keselowski, who raced Logano so hard it is clear Penske does not have team orders, and got to Logano with 10 laps to go. They raced side-by-side, door-todoor, round-and-round the Virginia paperclip until Truex finally got the lead with one lap remaining. Truex thought he was clear and headed to not only the right to defend his championship, but also his first career victory on a short track. Instead, Logano used his bumper to claw the victory back into his control and earned an enemy while doing so. ÂI was next to him for six laps, I never knocked him out of the way,ÂŽ Truex said. ÂWe were going to race hard for it, in my book. I cleared him fair and square. We werenÂt even banging doors. And he just drove into the back of me and knocked me out of the way. Yeah, itÂs short track racing. But what goes around comes around.ÂŽ More from Martinsville:TEAM ORDERSRoger Penske downplayed the questionably hard racing Keselowski waged with Logano with so much on the line for the organization. Had Logano slipped even the slightest, the team would have been heavily criticized for not allowing Logano to have an easier path to the victory. Penske dismissed any drama. ÂBrad knew what had to happen here today. I told them to use their heads. ThatÂs all I said. He knew exactly what was going on,ÂŽ Penske said, adding Keselowski also didnÂt deliberately impede Truex trying to move closer to Logano. ÂBrad could have blocked (Truex). You saw he didnÂt make it too hard for him to go by, so letÂs get on with it.ÂŽHamlin comes closeDenny Hamlin has won at least one race every season since his 2006 rookie campaign but that streak is in jeopardy with three races remaining. He Â“nished second at Martinsville, where he is a Â“ve-time winner. As he saw Logano move Truex ahead of him, he had just one thought: ÂCrash harder. Just crash harder. ThatÂs all I was hoping,ÂŽ Hamlin said.New deal for jj It took a long search for Hendrick Motorsports to land a new sponsor for Jimmie Johnson. About an hour before the race, Ally Financial said it would sponsor the next two seasons for Johnson. Ally will replace LoweÂs, which is leaving NASCAR at the end of the season. LoweÂs has been on JohnsonÂs car since his debut in 2001 through seven championships. The deal with Ally covers all 38 races a season Â„ a huge Â“nancial commitment in present-day NASCAR.Up next The middle race of the third round of the playoffs, Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway.
