First, a security guard had the approach blocked, ready to question or refuse anyone who was not a regular member or invited guest. Second, and more importantly, the 28 who gathered Friday night to praise God and ask for guidance remembered 11 who died in the Pittsburgh Massacre and 91 or more who died 80 years ago in the Nazi-sponsored riots of Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass.Ž On Nov. 9, 1938, Nazis in Germany, Austria and the Sudetenland of Czechoslovakia staged riots, burned or destroyed 267 synagogues and vandalized or looted 7,500 Jewish-owned businesses. Cantor Riselle Bain said Friday during the worship service that Berlin had so many broken business windows, streets were paved in broken glass, hence the name. Kristallnacht is generally considered the start of the Holocaust, because nearly 30,000 Jews were relocated to concentration camps that night. Only when liberating armies reached those camps at the end of World War II would the rest of the world know about the systematic, tortuous deaths of 6 million Jews, 200,000 Roma and at least 250,000 mentally or physically disabled patients, mainly German and living in institutions. But there were lights in the darkness, Bain said. She retold the story of how, from 1942-1944, a group of 13-15 year old Jewish boys in Czechoslovakias Terezin Ghetto risked their lives to produce a free-press magazine under the noses of their German captors. Unlike other ghettos, Terezin, a fortress town near Prague, had a thriving cultural life from the artists, musicians and academics imprisoned there, Bain said. Germans used it as a show campŽ to deceive the International Red Cross about conditions. Bain said the teenagers news magazine, Vedem „ to seeŽ „ told the true story of the ghetto, in de“ ance of Nazi censorship. The 40 Jewish boys who produced it lived in Home No. 1,Ž a three-tiered bunk room inside an converted school named L417, Bain said. Guided by teacher Walter Eisinger, a communist who preached free thought, they formed The Republic of SKHID,Ž a secret society to produce the magazine, named after Eisingers favorite book about a Russian orphanage. Despite overcrowding, disease, rats and bed bugs, the boys produced Vedem under direction of 14-year-old editor Petr Ginz, who urged contributors to write about what they saw, did and thought. Bain said they wrote at a wooden table in the center of the room or on their bunks, with bunk mates Temple Israel honors victims By MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ Marilyn Blair has dedicated her life to helping others; she worked tirelessly in the public school system, and when she retired, she began volunteering to continue making a lasting impact on the world around her. Blair spends much of her volunteer time helping environmental causes and teaching children about the environment.

Once Blair retired, she began volunteering all year, not just during the summers. I love outdoor stuff. Thats why I love volunteering at Archbold, Jay Watch and Ridge Rangers. The people at Ridge Rangers and Archbold are so great,Ž she said. They care about the environment, and they are so fun to be around.

By MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ On Thursday, Highlands County Sheriffs Office deputies lined State Road 66 and Orange Blossom searching for a man who reportedly tried to break into his ex-girlfriends home. Robert William McGee, 38, of Lake Placid, was arrested by HCSO on Thursday. McGee was charged with burglary of a residence while unarmed, possession of burglary tools and violation of probation. The victim, McGees ex-girlfriend, called law enforcement for help, because her ex-boyfriend was allegedly attempting to break into her home. She advised deputies that McGee was banging on the door and windows, and she could hear someone attempting to get into the back door with a small pry tool. When deputies arrived, they observed a white male wearing blue jeans and a gray shirt and hat, who was standing near the side of the home near a parked truck. Deputies reported that he fled on foot and that a chase ensued, which included units from the patrol, K-9 and Polk County air units. The victim explained that McGee was able to unlock two of her three locks prior to their arrival. A deputy noted small pry marks surrounding the locks. While searching the area, deputies reportedly spotted a small chisel with an orange handle. They also spotted his gray shirt draped over the pickup truck and his tennis shoes near the rear door, and the victim confirmed the items belonged to McGee. The victim told deputies that McGee was on probation and that he had an active no contact order in place.Ž This information was confirmed by dispatch. McGee was found several hours later hiding in the wooded area behind the residence.Man tries to break into his ex-girlfriends home MCGEE No matter what youre looking for, From a new job to a place to live, Classified has what you need!

We will not accept any Letters to the Editor that mention a business in a negative tone, as they have no means to defend themselves. Please keep Letters to the Editor to less than 250 words.

Readers may also email Letters to the Editor to editor@newssun.com. Many folks with graying (or thinning) hair and achy joints remember 1968. With apologies to Ervin Drake, composer of a song that was a hit for Frank Sinatra in 1965, it wasnt a very good year. Oh, it ended all right for fans of the Detroit Tigers (who won the World Series), the Beatles (the white albumŽ was released that year) and the space race (the “rst two Apollo ”ights took place in the fall and winter, capped by Apollo 8s gutsy lunar orbital mission at Christmastime). However, those highlights were preceded by assassinations (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy) and world crises (the Vietnam War reached peak ugliness with the Tet offensive; North Korea captured a U.S. ship, killing one sailor and holding 82 others in brutal captivity for nearly a year; and the Soviet Union and its allies put down reform efforts in Czechoslovakia). There also were massive protests (against U.S. involvement in Vietnam and for civil rights) that, unfortunately, ”ared into violence, particularly following Kings murder and at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. (No one who saw the scene outside the International Amphitheatre, broadcast in real time on TV, will ever forget it). So, why are we offering a history lesson about what Smithsonian Magazine has called The Year That Shattered America?ŽConsider the news of the last week: A man allegedly killed two African-American shoppers at a grocery store in Jeffersontown, Kentucky, after trying unsuccessfully a few minutes earlier to enter a black church. (We doubt his intentions were to pray at the altar.) A Florida man was charged with sending mail bombs „ forget what youve seen on social media; they werent duds „ to a bunch of prominent Democrats, including former President Barack Obama. A Pittsburgh man with an assault ri”e, three pistols and a history of virulent and repugnant anti-Semitism is accused of slaughtering 11 worshippers, most of them elderly, at a synagogue in the citys Squirrel Hill neighborhood. So, its not ”oating into the ether to think back to 1968 „ 50 years ago; imagine that „ and wonder if history is on the verge of repeating or even topping itself, especially seven days out from a midterm election thats being spun as Armageddon by some of our brethren in the national media and by opposing political forces who are convinced that this is good vs. evil and the very survival of mankind depends on their respective side prevailing. Some will call that hyperbole; we increasingly see reality. Some will accuse us of saying both sides do it.Ž No, we arent; were reinforcing our position that this country is so polarized right now, you could present the exact same information and variables to a group of people and they will see, hear and believe entirely different things. Such polarization also contributes to dislodging the tenuous governors that, up until now, have kept cretins like the three who became infamous last week, and others who have committed violent acts in the past, from acting on those impulses. Its not going away in seven days. Neither will the round-the-clock discussion of the political implications of these horri“c crimes, which of course commenced before the police tape had been secured at the crime scenes. Neither will the passions over the ultimate direction of this country, whose citizens increasingly arent able to connect on any level. So this likely will fall on deaf ears, but weve got to try. Everybody from the White House to residents of the countrys smallest voting precinct needs to tone it down, because this particular trip back to the futureŽ doesnt need to happen. We fear the consequences if it does. Online: http://www.gadsdentimes.com/Lets not repeat this historySchool securityAll the news of late has been politics and the election is of vital importance, but other items keep coming up that need attention. Two weeks ago, two 11-year-old girls in Polk County went to school with knives, intent on doing harm to other girls. They were stopped because another student reported them. No harm was done. A few days ago, two teenagers got in a “ght in the hallway of a school in North Carolina and the one boy pulled out a gun and killed the other. Three things come to mind. First, why did the boy have a gun? Second, where did he get the gun? Third, how did the gun get into school? Local authorities have struggled with ideas about how to prevent school shootings but these incidents keep happening. According to the internet, there have been 286 school shootings since 2009 all over the country. A squad car in the parking lot, of“cers at the doors and cameras all over the schools do not seem to be the answer. The shootings have been students shooting students, not outside individuals coming into the schools. Are we not ignoring the obvious that the weapons are coming to school either on a students person or in his/her backpack? Parents could be the “rst line of defense by checking the childs pack before school, but barring that, a random bag inspection could be done at the school. This is not an invasion of a students privacy, but possibly a method to insure school safety. Just an idea folks, nothing else seems to be working.Hal Graves SebringŽGodspellŽ should be seen by allMy friends and I were fortunate enough to see the opening of GodspellŽ this past Friday night. We would like to highly recommend this play to everyone in Highlands County. For those who have never seen it, it is a musical based on the teachings of Jesus. Each actor had a wonderfully, clear voice and used it to full advantage as the stories of the New Testament were presented in creative and clever ways. In this age of adversity, we couldnt help thinking that this play should be seen by all, so that Jesuss teachings come to fruition. Hope all will try and see this wonderful show.Millie Grimes SebringYOUR VIEW The other day when scrolling through a news app on my phone, I read a story by a woman who listed 10 things she wished she could tell her younger self. Of course, many of us have also heard country recording artist Brad Paisleys song about the same subject matter. The story I was reading made me think of the things I would tell my own younger self. I too would tell myself to pay more attention to my health. I would “gure out a better way to deal with stress than reaching for that next bag of potato chips. Instead of eating, I would get out and ride my bike. I would continue to do my exercises every evening. I would somehow learn to like cooked vegetables more than I do. I would be more sure of myself. Instead of thinking I had to prove my worth at one place, I would have been more open minded when I was asked by my new husband to consider moving to north Florida. Heck, I might have even moved out of state before I met the young man I would marry. That adventurous person has always been within, but had I not met him I wouldnt have the two beautiful children I have been blessed to raise. I would take more vacations rather than giving up so much of the time I earned. After my divorce, vacations were hard to afford. Instead of taking a week or two off, the children and I would take long weekends and make short little trips around the state. Looking back, we had fabulously fun staycationsŽ but I see now where I felt like I might have been taking too much time and cut those little trips down in number. Now that my children are adults, I try to “gure out ways so that we can all get away together. Trying to juggle three adult schedules is not so easy. I would have saved more money or invested in my 401k as early as I could have and never borrowed from it. Now that Im over that 55 mark, I dream of retiring some day but wonder if Ill truly be able to afford it. So many people I know have retired only to come out of it after a couple of years because they see Social Security is not enough to see them through. Who knows, by the time I am ready to retire there may no longer be Social Security. If thats the case, then what? I would have taken better care of my feet. Instead of wearing three-inch heels every day, I would have worn something more reasonable. Then my knees might not ache the way they do and perhaps the bones in both my big toes wouldnt be bone on bone. I would not have been so worried about the fashion had I known how my joints would feel one day. I would have watched more intensely when my dad helped me with something around the house or with my car. Ive never been one to ask for help with things, but Daddy never turned one of my requests down. Now that his shoulder is in need of surgery, I just do the best I can with what needs to be done and wait that maybe Ill get this chance again. Goodness knows, there always seems to be something that needs done around the house. I sometimes think I would have done things differently with raising my children, but honestly Im very proud of the young adults they are today … maybe not always proud of every minute, but I am proud that they are productive members of society. I would certainly carry a notebook with me to jot down the stories told between my parents and their best friends, or between my parents and their own sisters and brothers. Stories of generations past and fun had as children are lost as the storytellers themselves pass from this life. I thought of this last month while riding around with my mom and uncle, listening to the stories of their parents, their aunts and uncles, their cousins and even their neighbors. We were riding through the countryside and I immediately wished I had a notebook in which to write some of the stories being told. In that same thought, I would remind my younger self that time spent with grandparents is something you can never get back. Despite how I felt in my younger days, I wish I had paid closer attention to the words my mom spoke to me. She would tell me when Id be back in Illinois visiting family and friends that I should stop by and see my grandparents, even for just a few minutes, more often that I actually did. Now I have to stop by and visit them at a cemetery. The house they lived in has long been gone; torn down so that the church next door could have a parking lot. Id love to eat some of my grandmas homemade noodles and chicken piled on top of a helping of mashed potatoes, or see her quilting frames set up in the living room with her next piece of artwork stretched across it. I would also do a better job of documenting the days of my own childrens youth. A camera was always close by and I wrote in a journal daily. However, the pictures are in boxes and many of the pictures dont have dates on them. My goal each winter is to get the pictures out of the boxes and into photo albums, but each winter there is something else that takes more precedent. And, yes, I am old schoolŽ about photos just as I am with newspapers and books. Electronic, or digital, versions are a weak substitute for the real thing. I only mention these things so that perhaps my own children will read these thoughts and not repeat these wishes in another 30 or 40 years. And, so that my parents will see that it took me a while, but I “nally hear what theyve been saying. Maybe you share some of these thoughts too, or have some other words of wisdom you would share with your younger self. Take time to share them with your own family members. Its never too late to give them guidance, but some day many of these opportunities may no longer be available to us. Romona Washington is executive editor of the Highlands News-Sun.

They used an old typewriter found in the schoolhouse, and smuggled in paper from of“ces in the ghetto, Bain said. When the typewriter ribbon ran out after the 30th issue, they wrote the remaining 53 issues by hand. Sometimes they would sneak into forbidden sections of the ghetto to write articles. To guard their identities and lives, Vedem staffŽ adopted nicknames: Editors Of“ce,Ž War Correspondent,Ž Tiny,Ž Cement,Ž Baked Glasses,Ž SalamiŽ and Gremlin.Ž Bain said, of the 100 boys who passed through Home No. 1 from 1942-1944, many are known only by their nicknames. The magazine had a priceŽ on the cover and some light-hearted articles, but had poems about people dying or families separated and drawings of a family boarding a ghetto-bound train, an old person suffering from illness or a guard holding a gun. They produced one copy of Vedem each week, circulatedŽ it „ read it aloud „ Friday nights in Home No. 1, with lookouts and secret signals for approaching guards. Weekly readings, Bain said, provided a rare forum for personal victory, comradery and self-esteem, and eventually attracted some of Terezins cultural and academic elite, who were drawn to the expressions of spirit, truth and solidarity.Ž That solidarity repeated Friday night, as the faithful recited Psalm 121 and Psalm 23. Both speak of God as the refuge and source of strength and safety, but Psalm 23 speaks to grief, Bain said: It reminds Jewish people God will not forsake them. They then said a prayer for the 11 killed Oct. 27 in Pittsburgh, as one-by-one people rose to light candles to honor Joyce Feinberg, 75; Richard Gottfried, 65; Rose Mallinger, 97; Jerry Rabinowitz, 66; Cecil Rosenthal, 59; his brother, David Rosenthal, 54; Bernice Simon, 84; her husband, Sylvan Simon, 86; Daniel Stein, 71; Melvin Wax, 88, and Irving Younger, 69. Then they lit a single candle to remember and honor all those killed, injured, robbed and displaced by Kristallnacht. Donna Wasson, who taught elementary science in Germany from 1986-1989, said the mood had changed in Germany. Kristallnacht memorials in Berlin were huge. There were literally thousands of candles lighting the streets as people marched in vigil,Ž Wasson said. It was amazing.ŽHONORFROM PAGE 1A see preserves. Ive learned to use chainsaws, and Ive learned what are weeds and what are rare plants.Ž At Archbold, Blair teaches children about the environment and takes them on trails. She also helps with data collection on scrub jays and assists the station wherever needed. Ridge Ranger Director Bill Parken said, Ridge Ranger Marilyn Blair is an amazing inspiration to everyone, including the staff at the state, federal, and non-governmental conservation organizations where she volunteers. Her leadership and constant efforts at cleaning up old dumping grounds, while hiking the trails on conservation lands, has resulted in the removal of many tons of discarded appliances, car parts, roo“ng material, and glass bottles; returning hundreds of acres to pristine nature,Ž Parken said. Along with other Ridge Rangers, Blair has put up fences, taken down fences and picked up tons of trash. I helped pick up trash at Carter Creek. We picked up 42,000 bottles, most of them beer bottles. You could ”oat a battleship on all that beer.Ž Blair started counting the beer bottles Ridge RangerS removed from the property in 2010. Although she didnt pick up all the bottles herself, she began counting them to see the impact of the work they were doing. In addition to removing trash, Blair also locates rare plants for preservation and removes exotic plants that threaten to take over native landscape. She collects acorns to plant so that she can help restore scrub at the Royce unit of the Lake Wales Ridge Wildlife and Environmental Area. Although Blair dislikes cutting down trees, she cuts down sand pines to make habitat more open for Florida scrub jays, a threatened species. Scrub jays dont like habitat with a lot of tall, bushy trees,Ž Blair said. The jays cant see their predators in an overgrown habitat. It goes against my feelings to cut down trees, but its something thats got to be done,Ž she said. I like to feel like I have made a difference, and it has with these things [environmental projects],Ž Blair said. At 73 years old, Blair still lifts a chain saw, cuts up fallen trees and works to improve the environment. She feels that volunteering keeps her body in shape and challenges her mind. I really enjoy it,Ž she said. I wouldnt do it if I didnt.

CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDESECTION BMonday, November 5, 2018 HIGHLANDS HEALTH White sage is known botanically as Salvia apiana and can be purchased in a bundle and you can also drink it as a tea. This plant has impressive medicinal properties and is used in many wellness rituals. I think some people mistakenly assume you can get high off it, but you cant. I also want to emphasize this is a medicinal herb for everyone, and its not just for new agers, and its bene“ts were put on earth for all to utilize. Sage is just like every other herbal remedy youve heard of. You can take herbs as a dietary supplement, you can drink tea from the plant, or you can apply an herb as a compress. You can distill plants and inhale their essential oils, think of lavender or peppermint. Its all medicine! Im just giving you a new way to extract the medicine from a plant, by burning it, and this practice is referred to as smudging. 1. Treats Sinus Infections You can inhale the aroma given off a burning white sage bundle for a few minutes, or you can drink it as a tea. However you do it, its the compound called eucalyptolŽ also known as 1,8-cineole that when inhaled, reduces painful sinus in”ammation. It may kill the associated pathogens too! Thats pretty amazing considering the side effects of prescribed antibiotics and antihistamines. 2. Calms a Sore Throat Sage leaf tea is a proven strategy for alleviating a sore throat, at least according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Plant Guide. Sage tea as you know will reduce mucous secretions of the sinuses, throat, and lungs. 3. Relieves Menstrual Pain White sage tea might provide relief from menstrual period cramps and possibly some symptoms of menopause like sweating and hot ”ashes. This bene“t occurs because sage contains phytoestrogens, which are plant-derived estrogens. 4. Provides Cleansing Energy Sage is kind of like an eraser, it will help remove the days burdens and ease emotional suffering. It may help with mild anxiety or depression. Smudging is the quickest way because when you inhale, the compounds go straight to your bloodstream and brain. Just FYI, the practice of burning herbs (aka smudging) is a non-religious one. Youre just burning plant leaves rather than swallowing the supplement. If youd like, you can certainly pray while you burn the medicine. 5. Cleans the Air Burning the embers of sage (aka smudging) in a room is helpful if someone is sick. My tip is designed to clean a room where someone has been coughing or sneezing from pneumonia, or in”uenza for exampleƒ and you desire to clear the air space of these germs so you dont catch it too. If you work in nursing homes, clinics or hospitals, you might want to go home and smudge yourself to help deter infection from pathogens that hitched a ride on your clothes. Research has found that burning sage for an hour reduced the levels of bacteria in the air by 94 percent, and this bene“t lasted for 24 hours. If you dont want to burn it, drinking sage tea is an option. You can make your own white sage tea, or buy a commercially prepared form at health food stores and online.By JOHN HOPKINS MEDICINEA research team including experts from Johns Hopkins conducted a survey to determine trends in e-cigarette use. Based on more than 400,000 responses from the national telephone survey led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the researchers estimate that 1.4 percent of the population in the U.S. vapes. Yet these roughly 1.9 million people do not report smoking cigarettes regularly. E-cigarettes contain the addictive chemical nicotine, and as they are unregulated can contain Nearly 2 million vape regularlyE-cigs contain many of same cancer-causing agents as regular cigarettes VANESSA M. BLAHA PHOTOVaping may be less harmful than traditional cigarettes but still comes with many health risks. By JOHN HOPKINS MEDICALA new study of survey data “nds that only a minority of parents choose not to immunize their children against the sexually transmitted human papillomavirus (HPV) due to concerns that vaccination would encourage or support youth sexual activity, a reason frequently cited by doctors as a barrier to advocating for this vaccine. Instead, the results show, parental concerns that steer young people away from vaccination tend to focus on safety worries, lack of necessity, knowledge about HPV and absence of physician recommendation, according to Johns Hopkins researchers who led the investigation. The “ndings, published in the November issue of the Journal of Adolescent Health, could help public health of“cials and professional societies develop new interventions to increase rates of HPV vaccination. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the vaccine„beginning at age 9„in 2006 for females and in 2009 for males. Worldwide studies have shown the vaccine to be virtually 100 percent effective and very safe, with the FDA concluding that the vast majority of side effects are minor, and that bene“ts continue to outweigh adverse events. Despite recommendation by ACIP to include the vaccine as part of the routine childhood vaccination series, current use of the vaccine in the U.S. remains relatively low. In 2016, the most recent year for which data on vaccination rates HPV vaccine: Why parents choose to refuse JOHN HOPKINS MEDICINE PHOTO By STANFORD MEDICAL CENTERA decade of data documenting live births in the United States links babies of older fathers with a variety of increased risks at birth, including low birth weight and seizures, according to a new study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. The data even suggest that the age of the father can sway the health of the mother during pregnancy, speci“cally her risk for developing diabetes. We tend to look at maternal factors in evaluating associated birth risks, but this study shows that having a healthy baby is a team sport, and the fathers age contributes to the babys health, too,Ž said Michael Eisenberg, MD, associate professor of urology. Data from more than 40 million births showed that babies born to fathers of an advanced paternal age,Ž which roughly equates to older than 35, were at a higher risk for adverse birth outcomes, such as low birth weight, seizures and need for ventilation immediately after birth. Generally speaking, the older a fathers age, the greater the risk. For example, men who were 45 or older were 14 percent more likely to have a child born prematurely, and men 50 or older were 28 percent more likely to have a child that required admission to the neonatal intensive care unit. Still, these numbers arent reason to drastically change any life plans, as the risks are still relatively low, Eisenberg said. He compared the increased risks to buying lottery tickets. If you buy two lottery tickets instead of one, your chances of winning double, so its increased by 100 percent,Ž he said. But thats a relative increase. Because your chance of winning the lottery started very small, its still unlikely that youre going to win the lottery.

A paper describing the study was published online Nov. 1 in the British Medical Journal. Eisenberg is the senior author. Resident physician Yash Khandwala, MD, is the lead author.

B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | November 5, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Its here! Its of“cial! Yay! Fall has arrived ... and in Florida that just mean lower humidity and beautiful weather. You may be from up north or you may be home grownŽ but either way, the fall season is a wonderful time of year. With the change of seasons we realize that the holidays are just around the corner. Thanksgiving is coming up fast. It is by far my favorite holiday. It is a time for family and friends to come together and just enjoy each other. It is a time that lets everyone reminisce and make new memories at the same time. Usually the holiday season just seems to make people a little happier. That is most people. Some people may be dealing with the loss of a loved one. They may have depression and the holidays make it worse. Perhaps they have a disability like a hearing loss that makes socializing dif“cult. It is important to remember that everyone has their own issues and their own needs and that a little kindness will provide not just an immediate effect but also a butter”y or ripple into the environment that will go on for generations. So how can you reach out and help? In Highlands County we have many people who wear hearing instruments. We are an active community with many young seniors. There are many who have a hearing loss who can not afford them. While many people may have insurance to help with the cost of hearing aids, or perhaps Medicaid (Medicare does not pay for hearing aids), most will have to pay for the hearing aids themselves. So what do we do? In our community, our of“ce, Lampe & Kiefer Hearing Aid Center, Inc., partners with the Starkey Hearing Foundation to provide hearing instruments free of charge to those who qualify. Starkey Hearing Technologies and the Starkey Hearing Foundation have been providing hearing instruments for those in need for 50 years. Co-Founders Bill and Tani Austin started the Foundation 30 years ago to get a more organized approach at helping those who would otherwise live a quiet, muted life.Ž Their mantra: Alone we cant do much. Together we can change the world.Ž Annually, they have the Starkey Hear Now Gala in Downtown Minneapolis. At the last gala that we attended we had the opportunity to hear inspiring speakers about special life goals and successes. There were stars and celebrities and live auctions to raise money for this wonderful organization. We listened to President George W. Bush, President Bill Clinton., Ashton Kutcher (he was awesome speaking about his organization that works with the FBI to catch child porn creeps on the internet). We got to hear from guests who have been helped from the foundation. We were entertained by Lionel Ritchie. This is no small foundation. The Starkey Hearing Foundation raised $8 million that night so Starkey Hearing Technologies can provide the gift of better hearing. So far they have provided over 100 million hearing aids in more than 100 countries. They do this by donations and literally thousands of volunteers. So, do you have some old hearing aids laying around? It doesnt matter what style they are or how old they are. It doesnt matter if they work. Never throw old hearing aids away. If you bring them to our of“ce (Lampe & Kiefer Hearing Aid Center, Inc., 130 S. Commerce Ave., Downtown Sebring; phone 385-3497) we will send them to the Starkey Hearing Foundation in your name. They will send you a thank you letter that you can use as a donation off of your income taxes. (If they are working and you would rather they be used on someone locally, if at all possible we will accommodate that wish). Starkey will then re-condition the donated instruments, or salvage whatever components and plastics and use them to build hearing instruments for people in other countries. In the United States, people who need instruments will get new, premium quality hearing instruments. We all have many things to be thankful for. We are are thankful that we are given the opportunity of partnering with the Starkey Hearing Foundation for over 30 years. This partnership has given us multiple blessings of providing the gift of better hearing to hundreds of people locally. Community partners such as our of“ce provides free hearing tests for applicants. We also provide (free) all services that are necessary to obtain, “t the instruments provided by Starkey Hearing Foundation, as well as all follow up appointments and ongoing care. Look in your drawers. You too can help to give the gift of better hearing. Drop them by anytime. Thank you in advance.

People typically have a lot of questions as they research their Medicare options, which primarily include Original Medicare, Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement plans, before “nding the plan that best “ts their needs. Here are a few of the most commonly asked questions: When is the annual enrollment period to choose a Medicare plan for 2019? The Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plan Annual Election Period takes place from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7, 2018, for coverage that takes effect Jan. 1, 2019. Does Medicare include coverage for my prescription drugs? Original Medicare does not cover most prescription drugs. Many Medicare Advantage plans include prescription drug coverage, or you can sign up for a Part D Prescription Drug Plan separately. A licensed agent can look up your medications and tell you what the cost of each drug would be on a plan. How do I “nd out if my doctors, hospitals and specialists are in my Medicare Advantage plans provider network? Most Medicare Advantage plans offer easy-to-use online tools to help you “nd doctors and hospitals that are in the plans network. Full information on 2019 Medicare health and prescription drug plans is available on medicare. gov, and for Humana plans at humana.com/ Medicare.

www.highlandsnewssun.com November 5, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B3By NANCY DALEYOGA FOR LIFEIn Bombay, India, I watched a woman balancing a basket of laundry on her head as she walked to a stream to wash clothes. She had great stability. When we practice Half-MoonŽ Yoga pose, we become aware of our own balance and stability or, lack of it. and train ourselves to improve. In all of our activities, we can gain more con“ dence if we feel secure in our balance. For example, when we climb a ladder to paint a wall, we want to be feel secure in our balance and stability to prevent a fall. Half-MoonŽ pose builds con“ dence and stability that we can translate into our daily activities to feel independent. Lets practice HalfMoonŽ pose Yoga practitioner, Colleen Polonsky at the Peter Powell Roberts Museum Yoga class in Avon Park, demonstrates how to balance in this posture. Start the pose from Tadasana (Mountain Pose), standing with feet shoulder width apart, long and straight back. With the left arm resting on the left hip, inhale, bend the right knee with toes pointing in the same direction. Slowly, with concentration on precise movements, open the front of the body to the left as you lower the right arm to a block placed in front of the arm and right foot. Gradually, raise the left leg sideways in a straight line with the left hip and straighten the right knee. The goal is to open the body with straight arms aligned over each other. Point the toe of the raised leg. If you are just learning the pose, keep the left hand resting on the left hip and the head in a neutral position, eyes straight forward until you feel secure in raising the left arm to the sky. Hold the pose for two minutes. It is a good idea to use the block as you gain balance and stability in the posture. The more you lengthen the left arm to the sky by tightening the coreŽ muscles of abdomen and buttocks, the better you can achieve balance. Performing this pose, you engage the mind in concentrationŽ and focus on slow, detailed movements. Half-MoonŽ is a good posture to incorporate into a daily Yoga practice. For your personal Yoga practice, repeat and hold poses you already know for one minute. The longer we repeat the poses with correct form, we will discover improvement as the core elongates and we become more ” exible. A well-initiated posture is based on the best we can do at the present time. The aim is to achieve effortless alertness when the body is steady and relaxes. As we say, once you achieve your best form, relax in the posture. Stay focused in the mind with the pictureŽ of the pose and teach it to the body to record into muscle memory. Yoga practice is a mental, physical, emotional energy that we awaken every time we throw out the Yoga mat. It is a continual learning process. And, most important, remember to have fun as you evolve!Half-Moon teaches strength and stability COURTESY PHOTOColleen demonstrates Half-Moon pose.

B4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | November 5, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com a study showing that the number of older men fathering children was on the rise. Now, about 10 percent of infants are born to fathers over the age of 40, whereas four decades ago it was only 4 percent. Were seeing these shifts across the United States, across race strata, across education levels, geography „ everywhere you look, the same patterns are being seen,Ž Eisenberg said. So I do think its becoming more relevant for us to understand the health rami“cations of advanced paternal age on infant and maternal health.Ž Eisenberg and his colleagues used data from 40.5 million live births documented through a data-sharing program run by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Center for Health Statistics. The researchers organized the information based on the fathers age „ younger than 25; 25 to 34; 35 to 44; 45 to 55; and older than 55 „ and controlled for a variety of parameters that might skew the association between the fathers age and birth outcomes, such as race, education level, marital status, smoking history, access to care and the mothers age. The data suggested that once a dad hits age 35, theres a slight increase in birth risks overall „ with every year that a man ages, he accumulates on average two new mutations in the DNA of his sperm „ but birth risks for infants born to fathers of the subsequent age tier showed sharper increases. Compared with fathers between the ages of 25 and 34 (the average age of paternity in the United States), infants born to men 45 or older were 14 percent more likely to be admitted to the NICU, 14 percent more likely to be born prematurely, 18 percent more likely to have seizures and 14 percent more likely to have a low birth weight. If a father was 50 or older, the likelihood that their infant would need ventilation upon birth increased by 10 percent, and the odds that they would need assistance from the neonatal intensive care unit increased by 28 percent. What was really surprising was that there seemed to be an association between advanced paternal age and the chance that the mother would develop diabetes during pregnancy,Ž said Eisenberg. For men age 45 and older, their partners were 28 percent more likely to develop gestational diabetes, compared with fathers between 25 and 34. Eisenberg points out that possible biological mechanisms at play here are still a bit murky, but he suspects that the mothers placenta has a role. Beyond correlation Moving forward, Eisenberg wants to look into other population cohorts to con“rm the associations between age and birth risks, as well as begin to decode some of the possible biological mechanisms. Scientists have looked at these kinds of trends before, but this is the most comprehensive study to look at the relationship between the fathers age and birth outcomes at a population level,Ž said Eisenberg. Having a better understanding of the fathers biological role will be obviously important for the offspring, but also potentially for the mother.Ž Other Stanford co-authors of the study are professor of obstetrics and gynecology Valerie Baker, MD; professor of pediatrics Gary Shaw, DrPH; professor of pediatrics David K. Stevenson, MD; and professor of biomedical data, Ying Lu, PhD. Eisenberg is a member of Stanford Bio-X, the Stanford Child Health Research Institute and the Stanford Cancer Institute.

B10 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | November 5, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com are available, only 50 percent of eligible females and 38 percent of eligible males had completed the vaccine series. We wanted to better understand why parents choose not to vaccinate their children against HPV, since that information is critical for developing improved public health campaigns and provider messages to increase vaccination rates,Ž says study author Anne Rositch, M.S.P.H., Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Epidemiology at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. She holds a joint appointment in oncology at the Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center. During those years, the survey included questions about whether parents planned to vaccinate their children against HPV if they hadnt already„and, if not, why they were choosing not to. The research team analyzed responses to that speci“c question, which was asked each year from 2010-2016. In 2010, there were responses from 3,068 parents of girls and 7,236 parents of boys age 13-17. In 2016 there were responses from 1,633 parents of girls and 2,255 parents of boys age 13-17. The question was open-ended, allowing parents to name their reasons rather than choosing from a list. Rositch and her colleagues, including Anna Beavis, M.D., M.P.H., and Kimberly Levinson, M.D., M.P.H., both assistant professors in the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine; and Melinda Krakow, M.P.H., Ph.D., a former masters of public health student at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, sorted the answers into reasonŽ categories, separating the data by year and by childrens gender. They found that for girls, the top four reasons parents gave for not vaccinating stayed relatively stable between 2010 and 2016. These included safety concerns (cited by 23 percent of non-vaccinating parents in 2010 versus 22 percent in 2016), lack of necessity (21 percent versus 20 percent), knowledge (14 percent versus 13 percent) and physician recommendation (9 percent versus 10 percent). Those citing their childs lack of sexual activity shrank by nearly half over these years (19 percent versus 10 percent). Physicians may also be more likely to broach the subject with parents, and recommend the vaccine, if they themselves better understand that relatively few parents avoid vaccinating due to concerns over sexual activity. We think all physicians need to be champions of this vaccine that has the potential to prevent tens of thousands of cases of cancers each year,Ž Beavis says. Providing a strong recommendation is a powerful way to improve vaccination rates.Ž Up to 80 percent of sexually active Americans will be infected with HPV at some point during their lives, according to the American Sexual Health Association. The HPV vaccine can protect against nine cancer-causing strains of HPV. The recommended dosing schedule for the vaccine now involves two injections if the “rst is administered before age 15, or three injections if the “rst is administered after age 15.VACCINEFROM PAGE 1Bother harmful chemicals. Although adults report using e-cigarettes to wean themselves off of traditional cigarettes, younger generations are taking up vaping without prior experience smoking. Unlike regular cigarettes, e-cigarettes dont contain cancer-causing tar because they dont burn tobacco. But they do contain nicotine, the addictive substance in cigarettes. Most e-cigarette brands offer a variety of cartridges with different levels of nicotine. In general, e-cigarettes contain less nicotine than in a regular, combustible cigarette. One study determined that it would take about 30 puffsŽ on an e-cigarette to deliver the one milligram of nicotine contained in a regular cigarette. The nicotine usually is dissolved in a compound like propylene glycol or glycerin. Researchers have also uncovered a large number of other cancer-causing chemicals in e-cigarette aerosols or vapor, including formaldehyde, toluene, acetaldehyde, and acrolein, heavy metals such as cadmium, lead and nickel, nitrosamines, and tiny particles of matter that can lodge themselves in the deepest parts of the lung. Flavoring chemicals are also found in most e-cigarette nicotine cartridges. The World Health Organization estimates that e-cigarette makers offer more than 8,000 flavors of their product, including flavors like bubble gum and popcorn. Some researchers worry that these flavorings will make e-cigarettes more attractive to children and teens, and encourage more young people to become addicted to nicotine. E-cigarettes and regular cigarettes contain many of the same cancer-causing chemicals. For the most part, the levels of these chemicals are lower in e-cigarettes than in regular cigarettes. However, there are some data that suggest that toxins such as formaldehyde are produced at increased levels in higher voltage, tank systemŽ e-cigarettes compared to standard e-cigarette devices. Their findings in a brief research report, published on Oct. 9 in the Annals of Internal Medicine, suggest that regulating sales and education for vulnerable young people may be needed to prevent more people from getting hooked on nicotine. The researchers found that 60 percent of vapers were younger than 25 years old. Michigan had the highest prevalence of vapers in the population, whereas Alaska had the fewest. People who only smoked e-cigarettes also engaged in more risky behavior, such as binge drinking, risky sex and drug use. The lead author of the study, Michael Blaha, M.D., M.P.H., director of clinical research for the Ciccarone Center for the Prevention of Heart Disease and associate professor of medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, is available for interviews.VAPEFROM PAGE 1B adno=3610578-1 adno=3627161-1 adno=3627164-1 The Center for Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine is a comprehensive outpatient center with a team of professionals including general surgeons, podiatrists, registered nurses and dietitians who specialize in wound care.

THE NEWS WIRESTATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS With $50 million debut, Bohemian Rhapsody is no poor boySee page 8 Monday, November 5, 2018 By RACHEL BLUTHKAISER HEALTH NEWSGoing to the doctors of“ ce can feel so routine. You sit in the waiting room, “ ll out the paperwork, get measured and hop onto the exam table. But medical appointments for patients with disabilities require navigating a tricky obstacle course, full of impediments that leave them feeling awkward and could result in substandard care. Despite laws that require ramps and wider doors for access, many health care providers dont have scales that can accommodate wheelchairs, or adjustable exam tables for patients who cant get up on one by themselves. Dr. Lisa Iezzoni, a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School who has multiple sclerosis and uses a wheelchair, said she went 20 years without properly being weighed. This can result in treatment plans, and even prescriptions, based on educated guesses rather than exact information, she said. The Affordable Care Act was set to update standards for accessible medical treatment within the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which is enforced by the Justice Department. But the Trump administration stopped action on this change late last year as part of its sweeping effort to roll back regulations By SHASHANK BENGALI and RAMIN MOSTAGHIMLOS ANGELES TIMESTEHRAN „ Iranians in dozens of cities marked the 39th anniversary of the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran with government-organized rallies Sunday that doubled as a show of de“ ance against the renewal of American sanctions. Thousands of civil servants, high school students, members of the security forces and others gathered near the embassy site in central Tehran chanting slogans against the United States, Saudi Arabia and Israel. The heavily choreographed annual demonstrations took on an added edge with the Trump administration reintroducing U.S. sanctions starting Monday against Irans oil, banking and shipbuilding industries. The oil sanctions in particular are expected to signi“ cantly reduce Irans revenue. The U.S. has granted exemptions for eight countries and territories to continue importing Iranian crude but in reduced quantities. Some demonstrators carried placards that read, We welcome sanctions,Ž and said they would be less punishing than those the Obama administration imposed with international allies before the 2015 agreement on Irans nuclear program. It is more a psychological war and bluff waged against the Iranian people,Ž said Mohammad Nouri, 26, a cleric. It can even be a blessing in disguise, if we are clever enough to use the opportunity to enhance domestic By DARLENE SUPERVILLEASSOCIATED PRESSPENSACOLA, Fla. „ President Donald Trump on Saturday used his “ nal Florida campaign event before next weeks elections to implore supporters to send Republicans to the governors mansion and the U.S. Senate, claiming that allowing Democrats to win either of“ ce would bring ruin to the state he also calls home. Trump returned to Florida for the second time this week to help rally support for Gov. Rick Scott, who is challenging Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson. Trump also sought to boost former Rep. Ron DeSantis, who is facing off against Andrew Gillum, the Democratic mayor of Tallahassee, in the race for governor. Trump argued that Gillum would destroy FloridaŽ and claimed that Gillums policies would be a total nightmareŽ for the state. You have only one choice, Ron DeSantis for governor,Ž Trump told thousands of cheering supporters at a rally at Pensacola International Airport, with Air Force One park right outside of the hangar. If you want to pay high taxes, you ought to vote for the mayor of Tallahassee,Ž Trump said. You will destroy the state that I love.Ž Trump noted that he also calls Florida home; his Mara-Lago estate is located in Palm Beach and he spends most weekends there in the winter. He also said of the Democrat: Andrew Gillum is not equipped to be your governor. Its not for him.Ž Trump criticized Nelson, too, claiming that he only sees the former astronaut around election time when hes on television every night.Ž Earlier Saturday, Trump campaigned in Montana, where he made it clear that he wants to see Democrat Jon Tester booted from the Senate on Tuesday over a personal grudge as much as political ambition. Trump blames Tester for the defeat of his nominee to run the Department of Veterans Affairs. The president told hundreds of cheering supporters at a separate airport rally in the Montana chill that Tester tried to destroyŽ Ronny Jackson, a Navy admiral and White House doctor. Thats why Im here,Ž Trump said. Ive never forgotten it and its honestly one of the reasons Im here so much,Ž said Trump, who last campaigned in Montana in mid-October. Its a disgrace, what he did to that man.Ž LAKE HALLIE, Wis. (AP) „ A western Wisconsin community on Sunday was grieving the deaths of three Girl Scouts and a parent who were collecting trash along a rural highway when police say a pickup truck veered off the road and hit them before speeding away. Authorities have not released the names of the girls or the woman who were struck by the truck Saturday in Lake Hallie, or the name of a fourth girl who survived but was in critical condition at a Minnesota hospital. The girls were members of Troop 3055 and were fourth-grade students in nearby Chippewa Falls, which is about 90 miles Iranians rally on eve of new US sanctions to mark anniversary of 1979 embassy takeover AP PHOTOIranian demonstrators burn representations of the U.S. and Israeli ” ags during a rally in front of the former U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Iran, on Sunday, marking the 39th anniversary of the seizure of the embassy by militant Iranian students.

Page 2 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Monday, November 5, 2018 By BRENDAN FARRINGTON and GARY FINEOUTASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE „ Floridas 2018 midterm election is one of the most important in years. The governors of“ce and all three Cabinet seats are on the ballot; Republican Gov. Rick Scott is challenging three-term Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson; several congressional seats will be competitive; and Floridians will vote on 12 proposed constitutional amendments. Here are items of political interest from the past week.SOCIAL MEDIA ADVANTAGE?OK, so retweets and Facebook likes arent votes, but a candidates social media presence can be a sign of support. In the race for governor, Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum has a clear social media advantage over Republican former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis. Gillums Twitter campaign account has more than 427,000 followers, compared to the more than 91,000 followers on DeSantis campaign account. While DeSantis has more than 243,000 Twitter followers on the account set up for his congressional of“ce, the account was deactivated when he resigned his seat Sept. 10. While Gillum still has an of“cial account for the mayors of“ce, it only has 1,598 followers. Gillum has nearly 203,000 people who follow his campaign Facebook page, compared to nearly 147,000 people who follow the DeSantis campaign page. In the U.S. Senate race, Republican Gov. Rick Scott has a clear advantage over Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson when comparing Twitter campaign accounts. The Scott campaign has more than 50,000 followers, while the Nelson campaign has a little more than 13,000 followers. But when it comes to their of“cial government accounts, Nelson tops Scott with 369,000 followers compared to 209,000 for the governor. On Facebook, the Scott campaign account dominates over Nelson, with more than 237,000 people following his political page. Nelsons campaign page has only 34,000 followers. But when it comes to of“cial government Facebook pages, nearly 236,000 people follow Nelsons Senate page, while Scotts of“ce doesnt have a Facebook page.GREENE HANDS OUT THE GREEN BUT NOT AS MUCHBillionaire Jeff Greene boasted about the help hes giving Democrats up and down the ballot, but its a fraction of what he promised to spend had he won the nomination for governor. Greene spent nearly $36 million of his own money on the primary, only to come in fourth. Before losing, he set up a political committee and stocked it with $5 million that he said hed spend to help other Democrats if he were the nominee. Immediately after the election, he took the money back. This week, he sent out a press release saying he contributed $100,000 to help Democratic nominee for governor Andrew Gillum, $100,000 for a political committee supporting Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and $25,000 for a committee backing Democratic agriculture commissioner nominee Nikki Fried.THE FINAL TALLYWhen Floridas campaign for governor started, Andrew Gillum and Ron DeSantis were far behind their rivals in raising money for their campaigns. The “nal campaign “nance reports show, however, the two main candidates raised more than $100 million altogher, between their regular campaign accounts and their political committees. Much of that money ”owed in after the August primary. DeSantis raised nearly $54 million, while Gillum hauled in nearly $53 million. Gillum, who upset other candidates to win the Democratic primary, has received backing from some wellknown billionaires such as investor George Soros who has given $1.2 million in the last 18 months. Gillum has also received $2.8 million from the group formed by hedge fund billionaire Thomas Steyer. Gillum also got $7.5 million from the Democratic Governors Association. The Republican Governors Association, meanwhile, gave $3 million directly to DeSantiss political committee, but the group also independently spent money on ads aimed to boost DeSantiss campaign. Chicago hedge fund manager Kenneth Grif“n donated $5.75 million to DeSantis, while Isaac and his wife Laura Perlmutter gave him $2.5 million. Isaac Perlmutter is the chairman of Marvel Entertainment.Social media and green: The week in Florida politics HEADLINES AROUND THE STATESheriff: Keys boater found dead after searchKEY WEST (AP) „ Authorities say a Florida man was found dead in the water after a search that lasted more than 24 hours. The Monroe County Sheriffs Office says 64-year-old Raymond Fenton Robbins went to sea on his boat Friday morning as usual but did not return. Searchers found his boat Friday night but Robbins was not on board. The Keys sheriffs office dive team and the Coast Guard launched a search for Robbins. His body was found late Saturday in waters near Stock Island. He was wearing dive gear. It wasnt immediately clear how Robbins died. Authorities say an autopsy is planned and the investigation is continuing.31 years later, man charged in womans rapeCORAL SPRINGS (AP) „ After 31 years, police in Florida have arrested a man in a womans rape based on new DNA testing of old evidence. The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that 60-year-old Frank Montana was extradited last week to Florida after serving prison time in Minnesota for a similar sexual assault. Investigators say DNA evidence shows Montana was the man who raped a Coral Springs woman in 1987 wearing a ski mask and claiming he had a gun. The DNA evidence linked to Montana was on a tampon the woman was wearing when she was assaulted. A judge has ordered that Montana remain jailed without bond on two counts of sexual battery with a weapon. Jail records did not indicate Saturday whether Montana has a lawyer.City votes for money to move Confederate soldier statueLAKELAND (AP) „ A Confederate soldier monument will be moving from a Florida citys downtown park now that money has been found to pay for it. The Lakeland Ledger reports that the city commission voted to use $225,000 from red light camera violations to move the monument from Munn Park in Lakelands downtown to a local park dedicated to veterans. The move is expected to be completed by Jan. 31. The commission voted in May to move the statue to the veterans park but provided no taxpayer money to pay for it. Private donations fell well short of the amount needed. The statue, like many others across the South, depicts a generic Confederate soldier atop a pediment. Some commissioners said the veterans park is a more appropriate site for the monument.Survey will decide how much sand lost to Hurricane MichaelPANAMA CITY BEACH (AP) „ Coastal engineers next week will conduct a survey of Panama City beach to figure out how much sand was lost when Hurricane Michael roared ashore. A preliminary estimate is that the storm siphoned off more than 1 million cubic yards of sand from Panama City Beach shores. Thats about the carrying capacity of between 60,000 and 130,000 dump trucks. The Panama City News Herald reports that officials are still not sure of the total impact. Authorities say beach erosion could have been far worse but the storm surge at Panama City Beach was not as high as in other places impacted by Michael. Michael hit the Panhandle on Oct. 10 as a powerful Category 4 hurricane, causing numerous deaths and destruction. Trump was in Montana to boost GOP Senate candidate Matt Rosendale, who is challenging Tester in Tuesdays election. The rallies are part of Trumps multistate blitz in the run-up to Tuesdays balloting, when control of the House and Senate „ and perhaps the future of Trumps agenda „ are at stake. Trump said having Rosendale in the Senate will be phenomenal.Ž The president blames Tester for the backlash against Jackson, who eventually withdrew his nomination after facing anonymous ethics allegations, including claims of on-the-job drunkenness and wrecking a government vehicle. Jackson denied the allegations. Tester, the top Democrat on the Senate committee that oversees veterans issues, had released a list of the allegations against Jackson that was compiled by the committees Democratic staff. Trump, however, doesnt mention that the allegations werent the only factor that contributed Jackson withdrawing from consideration. Lawmakers questioned Jacksons limited managerial experience and his “tness to run a department as sprawling as the VA. At both rallies, Trump sought to rally the energized crowds by talking up the economy and tax cuts, new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, border security and several caravans of Central American migrants who are slowly advancing toward the U.S.-Mexico border. He mentioned plans for a new military branch called the Space Force, and complained anew about the news media. Trump also defended his decision to focus almost exclusively on the migrants and immigration in the closing days of the election. He recently announced that he intends to change asylum procedures, end the constitutional guarantee of birthright citizenship and build numerous tent citiesŽ to hold migrants caught crossing the border illegally. You can only say so many times that we created 250,000 jobs last month,Ž Trump said in Montana, in defense of his focus on immigration that some of the presidents critics say amounts to fear-mongering. Trump has denied trying to instill fear as a reason to vote Republican on Election Day. When were “xing a problem or “xed a problem theres no reason to go on about it for 45 minutes,Ž Trump said. Trump also called up Rep. Greg Gianforte to speak from the podium but did not repeat his praise of the congressman, who was convicted of body slamming a journalist just before winning a 2017 special election. Trump had said during last months Montana stop that anyone who can do a body slam is my kind of guy.Ž The president subsequently was criticized for seeming to glorify violence against journalists.FLORIDAFROM PAGE 1By GARY FINEOUT and TAMARA LUSHASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE, Fla. „ A man trying to stop a shooting attack on a Florida yoga studio said Sunday that he wrestled with the attacker after his gun jammed, a move credited with giving others time to ”ee the rampage that killed two people and wounded six others. Yoga student Joshua Quick spoke to ABCs Good Morning America on Sunday and said he grabbed Scott Paul Beierles gun after it jammed, and hit him. Tallahassee Police have identi“ed Beierle as the man who posed as a customer to get into the studio Hot Yoga Tallahassee during a Friday night class and started shooting. Police said Beierle, 40, then turned the gun on himself but authorities have offered no motive in the attack. Quick said Beierle was able to grab the gun back and then pistol-whipped him. I jumped up as quickly as I could,Ž said Quick, who had visible facial injuries. I ran back over and the next thing I know Im grabbing a broom, the only thing I can, and I hit him again.Ž It gave some in the studio time to ”ee. Thanks to him I was able to rush out the door,Ž Daniela Garcia Albalat told Good Morning America. She was in the class and thought she was going to die. He saved my life.Ž Two women „ a 61-year-old faculty member at Florida State University, and a 21-yearold FSU student „ were fatally shot. Dr. Nancy Van Vessem was an internist who also served as chief medical director for Capital Health Plan, the areas leading health maintenance organization. She was also a faculty member at Florida State and a mother. Maura Binkley, who grew up in Atlanta and was a double major in English and German, was set to graduate in May. Beierle was described as a brooding military veteran and former teacher, who appeared to have made videos detailing his hatred of everything from the Affordable Care Act to girls whod allegedly mistreated him in middle school. The videos were posted four years ago, and were removed from YouTube after the shooting. Numerous disturbing details about him have emerged. Hed once been banned from FSUs campus and had been arrested twice for grabbing women even though charges were ultimately dropped. Beierle, who had moved to the central Florida town of Deltona after getting a graduate degree from FSU, appeared to post a series of videos on YouTube in 2014 where he called women whoresŽ if they dated black men, said many black women were disgustingŽ and described himself as a misogynist. A Tallahassee police spokesman would not con“rm or deny the videos were Beierles. However, the man speaking in the videos looks like Beierle and biographical details mentioned in the videos match known facts about Beierle, including details of his military service. The posters YouTube username included the word Scott,Ž Beierles “rst name. The existence of the videos was “rst reported by BuzzFeed. A woman who “led a police report against Beierle told The AP shes never forgotten how creepyŽ he was. Courtnee Connon was 18 in 2012 when, she said, Scott Paul Beierle grabbed her buttocks at a Florida State dining hall. She declined to press charges, however. She learned of Beierles involvement Friday when a local reporter found her name in a police report and called her. I was totally just shocked,Ž she said. Since then, Ive been feeling a little guilt. If Id pressed charges, would that have stopped him from doing this? How was he not monitored somehow?Ž Four years after that, Beierle was arrested for misdemeanor battery after a young woman said he approached her at the swimming pool of a Tallahassee apartment complex, complemented her rear end and offered to rub sunscreen on it, records show. The woman said she declined the offer and, according to an af“davit, Beierle then slapped her on the buttocks and grabbed her. The top prosecutor for the of“ce that handled Beierles 2016 charge, William N. WillieŽ Meggs, has no personal recollection of that case. However, since the 2012 battery charges were dropped, Meggs said, it would have been routine for Beierle to receive a deferred prosecution deal. It would not have been atypical as a “rst-time offender for him to get diversion,Ž said Meggs, since retired as state attorney for Floridas Second Judicial Circuit. We should have called the victim to make sure she was OK with him getting diversion.Ž Its not clear from the court “le whether that occurred, and the woman didnt respond to emails seeking comment. The AP doesnt publicly identify sexual assault victims unless they choose to speak. Court records indicate prosecutors agreed to dismiss the battery charge after Beierle completed a six-month diversion agreement requiring him to stay out of trouble, not drink alcohol to excess and to follow a psychologists recommendations.Man says he wrestled with gunman during yoga studio shooting TALLAHASSEE DEMOCRAT VIA AP/Police investigators work the scene of a shooting, Friday in Tallahassee, Fla.

(AP) „ A rare corpse ”ower,Ž nicknamed from its putrid smell, is in bloom at the greenhouse at New Hampshires Dartmouth College. College of“cials say the plant, nicknamed Morphy, opened Saturday. And the Hanover greenhouse is going to be open to the public for extended hours Sunday. The ”ower is native to Sumatras equatorial rainforests and has a long, pointy stalk with a skirtlike covering and tiny yellow ”owers at its base. It blooms just for several days. When it does, it has an odor described as rotting ”esh, a decaying animal or even soiled baby diapers. The 15-year-old lime green and burgundy plant last bloomed in 2016, and before that, in 2011. Last time, it reached a height of 7 feet, 6 inches.ODD NEWS across the federal government. I was in shock when I heard that (Attorney General Jeff) Sessions Justice Department had pulled back on their rule-making,Ž said Iezzoni. Denise Hok, 54, who lives in Colorado Springs, Colo., and uses a wheelchair, opts for home health care when possible and avoids doctors of“ces where it feels like it doesnt really matter if something is wrong.Ž When of“ces dont have accessible equipment, she said, it sends a message.Ž The ADA, a 1990 civil rights measure designed to prohibit discrimination against people with disabilities, requires that public places be accessible, meaning new buildings and certain commercial establishments must provide ramps, doorways wide enough for a wheelchair, handrails and elevators. The law applies only to “xed structures, though, and doesnt address furnishingsŽ unattached to buildings. At doctors of“ces, that means scales, tables, X-ray machines and other diagnostic equipment arent legally circumscribed. The result is that movie theaters and laundromats have to be accessible to all people, but important aspects of the medical industry do not, said Megan Morris, an assistant professor in the department of family medicine at the University of Colorado who has studied patients with disabilities and their access to health care. The ACA directed a federal panel, the Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board, to take steps to close this gap by issuing standards for determining what medical equipment could be deemed accessible.Ž Their report was “nalized in January 2017, just before President Barack Obama left of“ce. But the DOJs decision in December not to update enforcement accordingly reinforces the disparities in how people are treated, said patients and disability rights advocates. Paul Spotts, 58, who is paralyzed from the chest down, said his checkups are a joke.Ž His doctors check his eyes and ears but they dont put him on a scale or exam table because they cant. They dont know how tall he is and they rely on how much he thinks he weighs. Patients with disabilities report feeling ickyŽ „ as if doctors and nurses dont want to touch them to examine them, explained Colorados Morris, based on her research, adding that theres a psychological toll to being treated as an otherŽ by the medical system. Spotts, who also lives in Colorado Springs and has used a wheelchair for 30 years, “nds it exasperating. He spends a lot of his time during appointments explaining his medical care to doctors who dont understand how his bladder works, what his circulation problems are or how to treat his leg spasms. The lack of equipment mirrors a lack of physician training and sensitivity to the issue, experts said. To get at this frustration, or even the perceptions that lead to it, we need to think more broadly: How do we equip our health care providers?Ž Morris said. There is implicit bias, and they dont realize they may or may not be treating patients with disabilities differently.Ž Dealing with exam tables and scales may be the “rst step. I think that all of us want to take the absolute best care of our patients, we want to account for patient needs,Ž said Dr. Michael Munger, president of the American Academy of Family Physicians. How physician practices adjust often relates to their specialty and primary patient population, not to mention the “nancial calculation. A small practice might balk at the $1,800-to-$5,800 price tag for an adjustable table. Sometimes its a matter of local solutionsŽ and workarounds, such as sending a patient to a hospital to be weighed if a small practice doesnt have an accessible scale, Munger said. Thats easier said than done for a patient like Spotts, who would have to drive more than an hour to reach a hospital that could weigh him. Space is also an issue, Munger said. Sometimes exam rooms simply arent big enough to accommodate larger tables and chairs for family members and still have enough space to maneuver a mobility device. Spotts said the rooms generally arent big enough, period. Some medical systems are taking action. The Department of Veterans Affairs has used the U.S. Access Boards standards to adopt similar accessibility guidelines. In Colorado, Centene, the largest Medicaid insurer nationwide, adopted similar guidelines. States are using their Medicaid programs for similar, limited efforts. California has worked with the disability community to create a survey for Medicaid providers, “nding where gaps are and creating regulations requiring accessible equipment like exam tables and scales, going so far as to create a database of which providers have them. But with the Trump administration failing to move forward, what care people with disabilities receive may depend on where they live. Said Hok: Under certain conditions, (it seems as if) you dont matter as much as someone whos not broken.Ž Kaiser Health News (KHN) is a national health policy news service. It is an editorially independent program of the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation.DISABILITYFROM PAGE 1 east of Minneapolis. Our hearts are broken for the girls and families of the Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes,Ž CEO Sylvia Acevedo of Girl Scouts of the USA said in a statement Sunday. The Girl Scout Movement everywhere stands with our sister Girl Scouts in Wisconsin to grieve and comfort one another in the wake of this terrible tragedy.Ž Counselors, faith leaders and trained school staff would be available at least through Monday at two elementary schools, according to Chippewa Falls School District Superintendent Heidi Eliopoulos. This is a dif“cult time for our students, families and staff,Ž Eliopoulos said in a message to parents. We will be providing ongoing support for both students (and) families and staff for as long as needed.Ž Teddy bears, balloons and candles sat on two wooden benches in front of Halmstad Elementary School on Sunday while dozens of families met inside with faith leaders and counselors. Families did the same at Southview Elementary School, the other school in Chippewa Falls the girls attended, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported. Its been very nice. Theres been a lot of people „ its been a very supportive environment,Ž said Michelle Golden, human resources director for the school district. Lake Hallie police Sgt. Daniel Sokup said the pickup, a black Ford F-150, crossed a lane and veered into a roadside ditch, striking the victims. Other members of the troop were picking up trash from the opposite shoulder. The 21-year-old driver, Colten Treu of Chippewa Falls, sped off but later surrendered. He will be charged with four counts of homicide, Sokup said. It was unclear Sunday if Treu had an attorney who could speak for him. Police misspelled Treus “rst name as ColtonŽ in initial news releases. Sokup said it was not immediately known if there were other factors that might have led the driver to leave the road. The Star Tribune reported that the crash happened before a hill and there were no blind spots, and Sokup said it was not an unsafe area.Ž But Cecily Spallees, a personal care attendant at a group home near the crash site, told the newspaper that drivers regularly speed on that stretch of road, which quickly changes from a 55-mph to a 35-mph zone. Troop 3055s regional council, the Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes, expressed its condolences on Facebook and said a vigil will be held Sunday evening at the girls school.MOURNSFROM PAGE 1industries and wean our economy off of petrodollars.Ž Others said Irans economic problems were more because of domestic corruption and mismanagement than unilateral U.S. measures. Trump is saber-rattling and wants to maximize pressure on the people so there will be a gap between the people and our rulers. No way „ it is impossible,Ž said Saeed Biagi, 40. We have to brace for bad days and get rid of our incompetent managers. Unfortunately, people from the poorer walks of life will suffer more than ever (from sanctions) but we have no option but to resist and rely on ourselves.Ž The demonstrations marked the day that Iranian students raided the U.S. Embassy and held 52 Americans hostage for 444 days in retaliation for U.S. support for the deposed monarch, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. Speaking from a platform, the commander of the Revolutionary Guards, the paramilitary force close to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said the U.S. sanctions were part of 40 years of failed plots of American administrations.Ž God willing, these new sanctions, which are part of the soft war against the Iranian nation, will fail too,Ž said the commander, Lt. Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari. Irans leaders accuse the Trump administration of reneging on the nuclear deal even after United Nations inspectors said Tehran was complying with its obligations to curb uranium enrichment in exchange for relief from international sanctions. The Trump administration has said it wants to punish Iran for its other activities in the Middle East, including sending “ghters to support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Houthi rebels “ghting Saudi forces in Yemen. The sanctions have sent the Iranian currency plummeting to an all-time low against the dollar and caused shortages of a range of goods, from diapers to medicines. But it is not clear they will accomplish the administrations stated goal of driving a wedge between the Iranian people and their rulers. We are suffering from the painful sanctions, and possibly we will suffer more ƒ but honestly speaking, we will tolerate and support our Islamic Revolution,Ž said Masoumeh Khodaverdi, 40. Her 7-year-old son held a ”ag bearing the revolutions favorite slogan: Death to America.ŽIRANIANSFROM PAGE 1 By SYDNEY LUPKINKAISER HEALTH NEWSModern technology has helped medical professionals do robot-assisted surgeries and sequence genomes, but hospital software still cant handle daylight saving time. One of the most popular electronic health records software systems used by hospitals, Epic Systems, can delete records or require cumbersome workarounds when clocks are set back for an hour, prompting many hospitals to use paper records for part of the night shift. Its mind-boggling,Ž said Dr. Mark Friedberg, a senior physician policy researcher at RAND. In 2018, we expect electronics to handle something as simple as a time change.Ž Dr. Steven Stack, a past president of the American Medical Association, called the glitches perplexingŽ and unacceptableŽ. Carol HawthorneJohnson, an intensive care nurse in California, said her hospital doesnt shut down the Epic system during the fall time change. But shes come to expect that the vitals she enters into the system from 1 a.m. to 2 a.m. will be deleted when the clock falls back to 1 a.m. One hours worth of electronic record-keeping is gone,Ž she said. Hospital staff members have learned to deal with it by taking extra chart notes by hand, but its still a burden, she said, especially if vitals change, or a patient needs something like a blood transfusion. Although hospitals often avoid the software glitches by turning the software off and switching to paper charts, its far from ideal because hospitals have become increasingly reliant on electronic systems, said Stack, an emergency physician in Kentucky. When [electronic medical records] work, its wonderful,Ž he said, but when the system is turned off, doctors cant use it to access patient records or order tests. Whiteboards are a thing of the past, and some staff members arent as comfortable with paper records because theyve relied on electronic records their entire careers. The one-hour pause slows everything down, which can cause patients to spend more time in emergency department waiting rooms, prompting some to go home before seeing a health care provider. Thats dangerous, Stack said. Not all hospitals turn Epic off, however. At Johns Hopkins Hospital, providers who need to check patients periodically through the night use a workaround. They enter vitals at 1 a.m. and then when the clock falls back an hour later and they have to enter new vitals, they list them at 1:01 a.m. They leave a note that its an hour later, not a minute later. Thats how the Cleveland Clinic does it, too. Other electronic medical records systems may require similar workarounds, said Jennifer Carpenter, vice president of IT clinical systems at University Hospitals in Cleveland, which uses several electronic medical records systems. Cerner, another major electronic medical records company, was unavailable for comment, but many hospitals plan for Cerner to be down during the time change, too. When asked to comment on the glitches and workarounds, Epic spokeswoman Meghan Roh said in a statement: Daylight (Saving) Time is inherently nuanced for health care organizations, which is why we work closely with customers to provide guidance on how to most effectively use their system to care for their patients during this time period. Were constantly making improvements and looking for opportunities to enhance the system.Ž But Friedberg pointed out that hospitals are locked into their electronic medical record systems because theyve invested so much money in them. And it would cost even more to convert and transfer the records into a new system. As a result, theres little incentive for software companies to improve their products, he said.Daylight saving time stumps hospitalsNATIONAL NEWS SHUTTERSTOCK PHOTOSome hospitals struggled with the time change when logging patient records.

The Sun | Monday, November 5, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: I'm an 88-year-old woman whose platelets went into the 500,000 range. I was sent to a hematologist/oncologist, who said it was a bone marrow disease. I was put on hydroxyurea 500 mg. A couple of months later, a blood test showed enlarged red blood cells, which I understand is from the hydroxyurea, but my doctor says it also prevents blood clots and strokes. However, in July I got a blood clot in my leg, and I am now on Xarelto for life. My question is if you think I could get additional clots from hydroxyurea, and if this is the best treatment. „ G.R. ANSWER: You have a condition called essential thrombocythemia. "Essential" means we don't know what causes it; while "thrombo-" is for "clot"; "cyt" is for "cell"; and "hemia" is for the blood, so it's too many clotting cells (platelets) in the blood. Some people get diagnosed because of symptoms such as headaches, or due to complications, especially clotting or bleeding. However, many are diagnosed just because their routine blood test shows a high platelet level. The goals of treatment are to relieve symptoms, if any, and to prevent complications. Hydroxyurea dramatically reduces risk of blood clots, from 24 percent to less than 4 percent in people at high risk, like you (over 60 and with a history of clot). Most experts would use an anticoagulant like rivaroxaban (Xarelto) in someone who had a clot despite taking hydroxyurea. It is very eective at preventing future clots. As best I can tell, you are on the treatment that most experts would recommend. DEAR DR. ROACH: What causes (and what can cure) bruxism? I have had the problem for 12 years and have sought help from my dentist, doctor and others. Each has his or her own theory about the cause „ but no one has a cure. Every night, I wear a "splint" (night guard), as I have cracked a few teeth in the past, before we knew bruxism was one of my problems. „ L.D. ANSWER: Bruxism (jaw clenching and grinding at night) seems to be an exaggeration of a normal response to arousal from sleep. They come from uncontrollable impulses from part of the brain, the brainstem, involved in very basic maintenance of blood pressure and the motor system. Although researchers have tried interventions to improving sleep quality, they have been unable to show improvement in the grinding behavior itself. Treatment is then primarily aimed at preventing damage to the teeth, jaw, muscles and joints involved, and the use of an oral device, such as your occlusive night guard, improves sleep quality and reduces damage to teeth, at least anecdotally. DR. ROACH WRITES: A recent column on statin treatment for high cholesterol included a comment on adopting a mostly plant-based diet to reduce cholesterol and reduce heart risk, and several readers asked if I had a diet in mind. I feel strongly that no one diet is right for every person, so I resist giving exact advice on diet. By "mostly plant based" I mean that the majority of someone's nutrition should come from vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains and nuts. Fish is optional for people who want that. Meats should form a smaller part of the diet than most people take in, while processed grains and simple sugars should be taken in very sparingly. There are many places for getting good diet information, and a dietician nutritionist is a valuable consultant for people with specic questions.DEAR ABBY: I'm a 34-year-old man who lives with my father, who is 76 years old. I'm currently without a j ob, but when I have one, I buy food and whatever else is needed for the house. I believe I'm doing my fair share. I love my father dearly, but I can't stand him as a person. He can be very rude and verbally abusive. He has told people we know very personal things about me. When we're visiting family, if I ask for something to eat or drink, he'll answer, "No! You don't need anything." (I can tell that the relatives are annoyed by him, too.) Dad played a major role in ruining a relationship with a woman I was dating. I don't invite any of my new friends over because I know he'll have something sarcastic to say. He also accuses me of not doing any cleaning around the house, but he fails to notice that I have done it at night while he was asleep. I rarely converse with him because we have nothing in common. He takes almost no interest in what I have to say, even when I tell him about something I saw on TV. He says, "Well, you shouldn't be watching that." I keep my mouth shut because I need a place to live, but day by day, more and more, my rage is building, and I want to tell him o. Help, please. „ Living With A Tyrant DEAR LIVING: Do not tell him o. Although you may be living "rentfree," you are paying plenty for the "privilege" of staying under his roof. It appears your father resents having you there as much as you dislike being there. Do whatever you can to nd a job. When you do, save every penny. And, for the sake of your self-respect, move out as quickly as possible so you can start living a normal life. You may need to nd a roommate, but anything would be better than this. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is about "buzz driving." „ Heloise "Dear Heloise: My Sound O is about people who think they can have a couple of beers and then drive safely. Don't people realize that 'buzz driving' can kill people, earn them time in jail or, at a minimum, a heavy ne? It also can ruin future job opportunities. It's simply not worth it." „ Suzanna Y., Astoria, Ore. Dear Readers: Here are some other uses for dental oss: Sew on buttons. Cut a layer cake. String beads for necklaces.„ Heloise Dear Heloise: Since I lacked enough counter space to serve food when my family came over, I took my old ironing board and covered it in foil. Then I draped it with a very large tablecloth, so that it looked more like a narrow table. It worked perfectly. „ Hannah K., Bonita Springs, Fla.Thrombocythemia is too many clotting cells in the blood Overbearing father makes living at home frustrating Do not drive with a 'buzz'Hints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby

Page 6 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Monday, November 5, 2018 ARIES (March 21-April 19). Inner peace will be a matter of putting things into two categories, mine to solveŽ and not mine to solve.Ž Of course, anything you dont have control over goes into the second category. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Witnessing a masterful piece of work will inspire you to create something of your own. Keep your expectations reasonable and your heart light. Then congratulate yourself for putting something in the world that wasnt there before. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). People sometimes say be honestŽ when they really mean validate me.Ž Consider the source and how personally the individual is likely to take your answer. Give a softer, warmer, gentler version of the truth. CANCER (June 22-July 22). There really is such a thing as being overprepared. Its a point at which youre past being ready and youre cutting into the energy that could be used doing the real thing. Sense when youve come to that point, and stop. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Dont be shy. When you include others in your work and fun, youll be doing both of you a favor. You can make someones life more interesting. Believe it! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It happens. People who are supposed to be supporting you may be the very ones bringing you down. Overfamiliarity can create such dynamics. Its worth a little scrutiny. Your best supporters today denitely may be strangers. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Oddly, you will attract more of the good stu just when you decide to stop striving. The best moment is when you realize that you dont want or need anything more than you already have. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Autonomy is your best look, so dont be surprised at the attention youll get today. People see you making money and/or having fun independently, and they want to get closer. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). As a rule, arguments dont change minds. To lead someone to believe dierently, its persuasion you need, not a ght. Persuasion takes time and requires that you get greater insight into the belief you want to change. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your ideas are mightier than you know, so be careful what you dwell on, as your thoughts have a way of becoming realities rather quickly these days. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Someone you love is confused and in need of training to navigate a situation. You may not be the expert this person needs, but you can facilitate the help, which will make you feel just as good. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Matters of scale will have a bearing on your outcome. Playing too small wouldnt net you the big prize, and playing too big might ruin your chance at enjoying the small prize. Match your game to the game youre playing. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (Nov. 5). Youll get caught up in magic circles of reciprocal love expressed through family connections, friendships and romance. Because giving love is such a high energy vibration, running it through you has a way of healing pain and mending sorrow. Also of note are an increase in resources and a more liquid nancial status. Cancer and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 6, 20, 18 and 45.

Movie guide: Capsule listings By JAKE COYLEAP FILM WRITERNEW YORK „ The Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian RhapsodyŽ and 20th Century Fox are „ for now, at least „ champions of the world. Bohemian Rhapsody,Ž starring Rami Malek as the late Queen frontman, shrugged off production troubles and mediocre reviews to debut with $50 million in weekend ticket sales in U.S. and Canada, and another $72.5 million internationally, according to studio estimates Sunday. That was well beyond expectations, which had pegged the “ lm closer to $35-40 million in its opening weekend. But audiences rushed to theaters to see the widely praised performance by Malek, the Mr. RobotŽ star, and to hear Queens foot-stomping anthems like We are the Champions,Ž Another One Bites the DustŽ and the operatic title song. The movie, which Bryan Singer directed before being replaced by Dexter Fletcher, at times has an almost concert-like feel, including a lengthy re-creation of the bands 1985 Live Aid performance. It really is a celebration of Queen and their music, and I think we did a really good job of letting people know that thats what this is,Ž said Chris Aronson, distribution chief for Fox. In soaring to No. 1, the Fox release trounced one from Disney, which will soon own the studio. Despite a production budget of $125 million, the Walt Disney Co.s lavish, big-budget The Nutcracker and the Four RealmsŽ opened with just $20 million. Disney is set to merge with Fox in the coming months, effectively ending the 103-year-old Fox, one of Hollywoods six major studios. We were hoping for a stronger start, but we do think its a “ lm that people will “ nd as we head into the holidays,Ž said Cathleen Taff, head of theatrical distribution for Disney. Though Disneys record of success is the envy of Hollywood, The Nutcracker and the Four RealmsŽ marks the studios third mis“ re this year following the underperforming A Wrinkle in TimeŽ and Solo.Ž The studios CGI-stuffed resurrection of E.T.A. Hoffmann story was positioned as an early holiday season release, but ” opped with critics (34 percent freshŽ on Rotten Tomatoes) and sparked only modest interest from audiences. It grossed $38.5 million overseas. Bohemian Rhapsody,Ž made for $52 million, was largely dismissed by critics as an overly conventional rock biopic (60 percent freshŽ on Rotten Tomatoes). But the “ lm proved more popular with moviegoers, who gave the PG-13 release, produced by Graham King, an A CinemaScore and 4 1/2 stars out of “ ve on Comscores PostTrak audience survey. Even in the negativity that came out of critics, there was always a but, almost universally: But Rami is great,Ž noted Aronson. Im very happy for Graham and Rami and the entire “ lmmaking team. And Im happy for the home team. This is a big win for Fox.Ž Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for Comscore, praised Foxs rollout of the “ lm as pitch perfect.Ž Dergarabedian also cited Maleks breakout big-screen performance and the sustained interest in all things musical at the box of“ ce. Musically based “ lms have lately been major draws in theaters, from Foxs own The Greatest ShowmanŽ earlier in the year to Warner Bros. Oscar favorite A Star Is Born,Ž which collected another $11.1 million in its “ fth weekend for $165.6 million overall. It seems that audiences cant get enough of movies that have music baked into their DNA,Ž Dergarabedian said. Thats proving to be a very successful formula.Ž Another winning formula „ Tiffany Haddish plus anything „ came up short over the weekend. Nobodys Fool,Ž which paired Haddish with another box-of“ ce force in writer-director-producer Tyler Perry, opened in third with a so-so $14 million. While far from disastrous for a movie that cost $19 million to make, the muted performance of Nobodys FoolŽ seemed likely a result of oversaturation. Two “ lms starring Haddish „ Night SchoolŽ and The OathŽ „ have opened in the past six weeks, and Night SchoolŽ is still No. 12 at the box of“ ce. In limited release, Joel Edgertons acclaimed gay conversion therapy drama Boy Erased,Ž starring Lucas Hedges, opened with a strong per-theater average of $44,000 in “ ve theaters. Matthew Heinemans A Private War,Ž starring Rosamund Pike as war correspondent Marie Colvin, opened in four theaters with a per-theater average of $18,000.

For some teams that narrowly missed out on the postseason, maybe this isnt as much a time of relief. For others, who have been gassed and injured all season, its “nally time to relax. For me, its a time of re”ection. It seems like I was just out at Port Charlotte High Schools “rst fall practice talking to kicker Derek McCormick about the upcoming season. Since then Ive watched crazy ”ea ”icker trick plays, insane one-handed, under-the-leg catches, inspiring comebacks and heartbreaking defeats. Its been one heck of a ride, but its not over yet. Now were heading into the postseason with two teams remaining. Charlotte and Venice high schools will each host the “rst round and are itching for a deep run. But before we look ahead, I think its important to see how we got here. Before I switch into playoff mode, lets wrap up each teams regular season. Port Charlotte (7-3) It was an up-and-down season for Port Charlotte, who entered the season with tons of promise. Surprisingly, they were the odd team out of the postseason. The Pirates had talent all over the “eld, but their inexperience and depth hurt them in key games, most notably losses to Charlotte and North Fort Myers. After the 49-13 loss to the Red Knights, the Pirates entered survival mode and needed to win out to have a shot at the postseason. With wins over Ida Baker, Island Coast and Southeast, they came up one game short after rival Charlotte overcame a 14-point de“cit to send the Pirates home for the season. Bright spots: The Pirates offensive playmakers made for exciting games to watch. The electric feet of senior Marc Jean-Louis and the touch throwing of sophomore Logan Rogers was a pleasant surprise. Rogers threw for 14 touchdowns By STEVE REEDAP SPORTS WRITERCHARLOTTE, N.C. „ Cam Newton cant keep from grinning when he looks around at the playmakers that surround him in the Panthers locker room. The talent level we have on this team is extremely scary,Ž Newton said. The Panthers proved that again Sunday. Newton completed 19 of 25 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns, running back Christian McCaffrey racked up 157 total yards and scored twice and second-year wide receiver Curtis Samuel scored on a 33yard double reverse and hauled in a 19-yard TD catch midway through the fourth quarter to seal Carolinas 42-28 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. The Panthers (6-2) are on a roll midway through the season, scoring 99 points in the last nine quarters. They have wide receivers that can run the ball, running backs that can catch, a big body receiver, a third-down receiving specialist, one of the best pass-catching tight ends in the league and, of course, a onetime league MVP at quarterback who can do it all. Those weapons were all on display in the “rst half as the Panthers scored touchdowns on “ve straight possessions to build a 35-7 lead en route to their 10th straight win at home. Even a little FitzmagicŽ wasnt enough for the Buccaneers (3-5). Ryan Fitzpatrick, who started in place of the turnover-prone Jameis Winston, “nished with 243 yards passing and four touchdowns „ two each to Adam Humphries and O.J. Howard „ and led the Bucs back to within 3528 in the fourth quarter before running out of steam. Fitzpatrick threw two costly interceptions „ one on the games second possession which led to Carolinas “rst touchdown, and other late in the fourth quarter that sealed the Bucs fate. We know we have the talent, its just we cant keep digging ourselves in these holes, especially on the road,Ž Fitzpatrick said. The de“cit „ and Carolinas offensive “repower „ proved too much. Tight end Greg Olsen called the versatility the Panthers now have on offense with players like McCaffrey, Samuel and D.J. Moore is unlike anything hes seen since his arrival in Carolina in 2011. We have guys who are so explosive, so dynamic By BEN BAUGHSPORTS EDITORIt was while playing a round of golf at the Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota with his father, that the course of Charlotte Tarpons golfer Jacob Smith, would be forever altered. The senior quali“ed for State, and will begin play Tuesday in the Class 3A tournament at the Mission Inn and Resort at Howey-in-the-Hills. Smith was 15-years-old at the time, the summer prior to his Freshman year in high school, when a propitious event occurred. Both Smith and his father birdied the same hole. It was the “rst time they had ever done that while playing together. The look on his face, his eyes were so wide; he was ecstatic,Ž said Smith. That made me feel kind of special.Ž It was at that moment, Smith made the decision to direct his focus solely toward golf. He had also been playing another sport, but his evolution as a golfer far outweighed any athletic endeavor he had previously been involved in. I had played basketball before that (Smith took up golf at age 11),and I was strictly basketball up until then,Ž said Smith. I said, Im quitting basketball because Im not getting anywhere with it. I said, Im going to start doing golf. I dont miss basketball at all.Ž Smiths stability and equanimity on the golf course, are an attribute that have been a critical component in his success, and that was apparent with his play at regionals. Smith shot a 73 to qualify for states. As an athlete, I push myself to do better,Ž said Smith. I know I couldve done better at regionals, but I cant complain how I “nished up. It started off a little choppy. It was up and down with birdies and bogeys, back and forth, and then I calmed down. I had 13 pars straight.

ANTALYA, Turkey „ Justin Rose is No. 1 in the world again, and this time it feels even more special. More than having the top ranking, he goes home with a trophy. Rose rallied from a three-shot deficit Sunday with a 3-under 68, and then defeated Li Haotong of China on the first playoff hole with a par to win the Turkish Airlines Open for the second straight year. The first time Rose reached No. 1 in the world was two months ago, a bittersweet moment because he lost the BMW Championship outside Philadelphia in a playoff against Keegan Bradley. This time Ive got some silverware,Ž Rose said. Last time it was muted because I was still so mad at not winning the tournament at the BMW. But this time Ive got the double kind of winning feeling, so it might be a bit more fun to celebrate it at this time.Ž The 38-year-old from England has plenty to celebrate of late. He won the FedEx Cup on the PGA Tour with its $10 million bonus, but much like getting to No. 1 in the world for the first time, it was an awkward moment because he had a chance to win the Tour Championship and instead closed with a 73 and tied for fourth. Those were big achievements that felt at the moment like consolation prizes. Not having that winning feeling in a tournament but still coming away with accolades,Ž Rose said. I was keenly aware that I wanted to get back in the winners circle, and it was good to get it done today.Ž He needed help from Li, who closed with a 71 and lost the playoff with a three-putt bogey from just inside 10 feet. Its a tough day for me,Ž Li said. I think I played well the whole week, but didnt hole a few putts on the last and that was it.Ž Rose made his fourth birdie of the round at the 14th for a two-shot lead. Li responded with a stunning approach to tap-in range on the par5 15th for an eagle and a share of the lead when Rose three-putted from long range for par. Rose made a 4-foot birdie on the 16th to regain the lead, only to give it back with a three-putt bogey on the 17th. Li three-putted from long range on the 18th for bogey and Rose was set to win in regulation when he blasted out of a bunker to 4 feet, only to miss the short par putt. Rose missed a 15-foot birdie putt on the 18th in a playoff. Li missed his birdie putt for the win, and then missed the par putt to lose. It was the 21st victory worldwide for Rose, and the first time he had successfully defended his title. While the Turkish Airlines Open was only his second title this year, he has been at a consistently high level over the last two months. Rose has finished no worse than eighth in his last six tournaments dating to the second FedEx Cup playoff event on the PGA Tour. Going back to his victory at the Colonial on the PGA Tour, he has finished in the top 10 in 11 of his last 13 tournaments. Rose said it was the best golf of his career as a collective body of work.Ž Just the consistency of it,Ž he said. I think I averaged 68.9 on the PGA Tour this year, and thats way lower than Ive ever averaged before. The fun thing is I still feel like theres improvement to be had and thats what Im looking for. Im really looking forward to the offseason to still work at a few things and still get better. I think thats the exciting part „ at 38, I still feel like there is improvement to be achieved.Ž Rose was headed home to the Bahamas instead of playing the next Rolex Series event in South Africa, and he was not planning to be at the Race to Dubai finale at the DP World Championship. He would have to win to overtake British Open champion Francesco Molinari. Rose kept the No. 1 ranking for two weeks the first time he reached the top. Brooks Koepka will have a chance to take it back in two weeks when he defends his title at the Dunlop Phoenix Open on the Japan Golf Tour.

The Sun | Monday, November 5, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3 play more conservatively when the situation calls for it. Some of Smiths success can be attributed to hows hes able to adjust, with club selection taking on added signi“cance. Driving distance is an important variable, but how he approaches each hole has just as much gravitas. Smith makes use of every club in his bag. Sometimes I hit irons off of a couple of tees, or I hit hybrids or a 3-wood,Ž said Smith. Something to keep me out of trouble without having to go to the driver. Sometimes you have to put the driver away and play with the little clubs, even though it means its longer to the greens, and thats probably the biggest thing Ive learned this year. A big part of my game this year was my long irons.Ž Tarpons coach Scott Harvey places an emphasis on scoring yardages, playing smart, so the golfers on the roster can keep themselves out of trouble. When we start off the season, we dont take drivers, hopefully that sets into what we want to accomplish,Ž said Harvey. Smith may be the “rst Tarpons boys golfer to have quali“ed for States, and the “rst to earn the distinction during Harveys 18 years of coaching. Its been a long time coming, and Jacob is the one who could break through,Ž said Harvey. However, Smiths in”uence is far greater than just his play on the golf course, hes also been a mentor to the younger players on the team. As much as everyone has said, Golf is an individual sport. Youre still on a team,Ž said Smith.ŽYou can only do as good as your team does. I help out where I can, and do whats best for the team.Ž Basketball did have its bene“ts, helping Smith with his endurance, as he has to carry his bag for nine or 18 holes during tournament play. Its de“nitely no easy task,Ž said Smith. Sometimes people dont realize how hard it is to maintain your stamina when youre walking around with a big bag on your back in the middle of the heat. I think it would have de“nitely been a bigger struggle coming into my freshman year, if I hadnt been in basketball.Ž Smith is extremely competitive, and cites Phil Mickleson and Ricky Fowler as his favorite golfers. Hes been exposed to the sport for some time, and watches a lot of golf on television. My dad has been a PGA member for 20 something years now,Ž said Smith. We have all the Masters ”ags and PGA ”ags and caddies jerseys hanging around the house. Pictures from all the events of Arnold Palmer and Gary Player.Ž And like Mickleson, Smiths game is frequently up and down, “nding himself often having to rely on his short game. But its Smiths role as a team leader that continues to make an impact, said Harvey. The area golf courses have also helped Smith in his evolution as a player. Smith has also worked to re“ne his swing with professional David Hronek at Charlotte Harbor National Golf Club. Charlotte Harbor National, The Links, Deep Creek, Twin Isles, St. Andrews South, they let the kids play,Ž said Harvey. They welcome them and it really helps tremendously in getting them out and playing.Ž This weeks tournament extends the season a few more days, the practice round is Nov. 5, with the tournament taking place Nov. 6 and 7. That used to be the cry when we had teams that we wanted to go to states back in the 2000s, Three more days,Ž said Harvey. And Jacob got that for me.ŽLINKSFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY BEN BAUGH Jacob Smith shot a 73 at regionals to qualify for the 3A State Tournament, that will be played Nov. 6-7 at the Mission Inn and Resort at Howey-in-the-Hills. and ran for another seven. Jean-Louis added 16 total touchdowns and over 1,000 yards of total offense. Lemon Bay (2-8) The Mantas are certainly sitting back and thanking the football Gods that the season is over. Lemon Bay battled injury and fatigue all season. Given the circumstances they faced all year, their issues on the “eld were somewhat justi“ed. Compile their low numbers with a brutal schedule and the season was a constant uphill battle. They played two teams in the current playoff “eld and a few other teams with strong resumes and winning records. The Mantas earned wins over Estero and North Port, closing their season by taking home the Golden Hammer against the Bobcats. Bright spots: Though they struggled to hold teams back in the “nal quarter when gassed, Lemon Bays defense held strong through most of its games. Their ability to limit time of possession and force turnovers gave them a chance in a lot of their games. Offensively, DeVante Roberson and Keegan Marinola were two of the Mantas top playmakers with multiple scores on the year. North Port (3-7) For the early part of the season, things were looking good for the Bobcats. They were a few plays away from being 4-1 after “ve games. A late score cost them the game against Sarasota and they werent able to hold a halftime lead against DeSoto, who is off to the postseason. The biggest problem for North Port was the inability to “nd offense outside its strong run game with senior Jalien Whye. Whye was the bell cow all season, averaging over 100 yards per game with eight touchdowns. Against Venice, Whye went down with a knee injury and the Bobcats had to continue their toughest stretch of the season without their team MVP. All in all though, they showed promise in a program that has been yearning for stability and success. Head coach Brain Hatler is in the midst of a culture change and the program looks to be trending in the right direction. Bright spots: Pairing a smothering defense with their above average rushing attack kept the Bobcats in most games. Against Ida Baker, the defense caused two turnovers in a stalemate of a game to spark a win. In games North Port won, it won the turnover battle and forced 14 turnovers on the year, according to maxpreps.com. Now for the playoff teams. Charlotte (8-2) After the lopsided loss to Venice early in the season, a lot of people questioned how good Charlotte really was, and many people still do. But the Tarpons currently sit as the No. 2 seed in Region 6A-3 and are set to host some playoff games. The Tarpons rely heavily on their running game as well as a strong defense. Senior tailback Jayden Grant has been the workhorse with over 500 yards and 10 touchdowns. Pair him with dual-threat quarterback Alex Muse and the offense has taken ”ight. The Tarpons have averaged nearly 30 points per game and have proven they can “ght when needed. Charlotte recovered from a 14-plus-point de“cit twice this season and are hoping for a deep playoff run. Bright spots: Its easy to give all of the credit to the running game and quarterback play, but the real heroes for Charlotte lie in the trenches. Behind an all-senior offensive line, the Tarpons have been able to bully their way down the “eld. With a stable of running backs and playmakers, unless they face a superior defensive front, its hard to wear them down. Venice (9-1) Another state title run? Looks like it. The perennial powers in 7A are back at it again with another stout season. The Indians rolled Palmetto and outlasted Braden River on their way to a third straight district title. With the exception of the win against Braden River that came down to the wire, no other win was closer than 17 points. They retain their place as the class of the area with future college athletes galore and look like the team to beat in the region. Bright spots: Its tough to stand out on a team as talented as Venice and even harder when you sit the second half most games. But when you can still average 92 yards per game with over 20 touchdowns, youre doing alright. Senior running back Brandon Gregory, our Sun Preps fantasy MVP, has been a freight train this season with little resistance. He has over 800 yards and two “ve touchdowns games to his credit. The Indians want to ride him to another state title, and they just might.

Charlotte, DeSoto County and Venice high schools are the only area teams moving on to the postseason and each got to see who they will face on Friday in the opening round. Charlotte (8-2) will host Clearwater High School (6-4) out of Region 6A-3, No. 7 DeSoto will travel to No. 2 Jesuit High (6-1) and Venice (9-1) will host Tampa Bay Tech (7-3) in Region 7A-3. Second-seeded Charlotte opted to rest injured quarterback Alex Muse for the season “nale, which is the smarter move for the future, but may have cost them the No. 1 overall seed in the region after it fell to Palmetto. The Tarpons will still have the opportunity to host the “rst two rounds if they move on. Venice was deemed the top team in 7A-3 and will host the Titans for the “rst step in their quest to repeat as state champions. Venice has been nearly unstoppable after its season-opening loss to 8A powerhouse Vero Beach. They will host throughout the region tournament. Email Jacob Hoag at Jhoag@sun-herald.com and follow him on Twitter @ByJacobHoag.Area teams find out their playoff matchups By CHUCK BALLAROSUN CORRESPONDENTESTERO „ The past few seasons have not been kind to the Charlotte High School boys swim team when it came to regionals. Coach Jeff Cain would put some really good relay teams in the “eld, only to get DQed or underperform. Saturday, at the Region 3A-3 Swimming & Diving Championships at Florida Gulf Coast University, their luck changed as the Tarpons could do no wrong. Dylan Hacker placed second in the 200-yard individual medley and the 100-yard breaststroke (breaking a school record in the latter), and joined Joshua Eaton, Casey Keller and Carl Eisen in an upset victory in the 200-yard freestyle relay for another automatic berth at states next week in Stuart. The result was a thirdplace “nish for the boys team, behind only Venice and Barron Collier. Everybody made improvements. They are young, they swam hard, the boys did well and they all did well,Ž Cain said. As for the relays, its the “rst time weve put it all together this year. Before that we mixed it up. Give credit to the kids.Ž Cain quickly got in a good mood when his boys 200 medley relay team placed third and it only got better as Eaton placed “fth in the 50 free and later earned a tie for third in the 100 breaststroke, putting him in good position to reach states as an at-large. The top two “nishers in each region earn automatic berths to states. After that the remaining top 16 “nishers based on time earn at-large bids. Those times wont be known until all the results in the region are in. With region 3A being known as a fast region, even Eisens 10th place in the 100 freestyle and 9th in the 50 freestyle gives him a punchers chance at sneaking into states in one or both races. In relays, only the winner is guaranteed a spot, and the Tarpons came up big in the 200 freestyle. This week weve been lowering the stress levels and doing easier sets and that really helped us go fast and get our sprint on,Ž Eaton said. Im surprised we could hold our ground so well and Im very proud of it.Ž Eaton got the Tarpons up front early on the “rst leg. When Keller and Eisen were able to hold the lead for Hacker for the anchor leg, it was the senior leader who closed the deal. We were all on our game. I saw we were about even at the end of the third leg. I like to anchor. The last two years our 400 free relay team got disquali“ed and we were hoping it wouldnt happen this year,Ž Hacker said. The girls team “nished 14th as a team and will be hard pressed to send anyone to states. Karys Nelson took ninth in the 50 freestyle and the girls 200 freestyle relay team “nished sixth, making them longshots to make the state “eld. Nobody could stop Venices boys, who won their fourth straight regional title, lapping the “eld in the process (they beat runner-up Barron Collier by almost 150 points). Rene Strezenicky won the 100 and 200 freestyle and the 400 freestyle relay to lead the Indians. We had a lot of “rstand second-place “nishes and thats a great way to start the day and get those automatic bids to state,Ž said Venice coach Dana Minorini. These kids are fantastic and were having fun with this program and the kids thrive in it.ŽHacker, relays go to states for Tarpons SUN PHOTO BY CHRIS BLAKECharlottes Dylan Hacker competes in the Boys 200 Yard Individual Medley during Saturdays 3A Region 3 Championship at the Florida Gulf Coast University Aquatic Center.

Page 4 SP www.yoursun.com The Sun | Monday, November 5, 2018By DAVID LENNONNEWSDAY (TNS)CARLSBAD, Calif. „ Dave Dombrowski, now the architect of a World Series champion in each league, will begin his victory lap this week when the general managers meetings „ the annual gathering otherwise known as the unof“cial start of Major League Baseballs hot stove season „ kick off Monday at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa. But as all these front-of“ce types converge in SoCal, will they consider the blueprint of Bostons Dombrowski „ who also put together the 2003 world champion Marlins „ something worth emulating in the months ahead? The Red Sox far outspent anyone else in baseball with a $238-million payroll „ well past the $197-million luxurytax threshold „ so those 119 wins came at a signi“cant cost. The key part of last offseason for Boston was waiting out J.D. Martinez. He didnt sign his “ve-year, $110-million contract until late February, and his $23.75-million salary for 2018 turned out to be a relative bargain as he put up MVP-caliber numbers. Taking the pulse of this offseasons marketplace is one of the main activities at the GM meetings, with agents getting the opportunity to shop their clients for the “rst time. Its also worth noting that the luxury-tax threshold will bump up to $206 million for 2019, so the top-spending teams will have a little extra cash to play around with this winter. How much of that will wind up in the pockets of players will be watched closely by both sides in the months ahead. Consider this week more of a feeling-out process, with the action ramping up as we move closer to the winter meetings „ MLBs offseason carnival „ which commence on Dec. 9 in Las Vegas, appropriately enough. So here are a few things to keep an eye on in the days ahead: The question on everyones mind after the World Series „ aside from Dave Roberts puzzling bullpen usage in Game 4 „ is how much, if at all, Manny Machados bizarre behavior will hurt him in free agency. From his de“ant stance on his occasional leisurely stroll out of the batters box „ Im not Johnny HustleŽ „ to spiking “rst basemen not once, but twice, Machado certainly had no interest in projecting a solid clubhouse presence for any prospective suitors. Should it matter? Machado batted .227 (15for-66) with three homers, 12 RBIs and a .672 OPS in 16 postseason games. The lasting image from the Game 5 clincher, and a particularly satisfying one for the Red Sox, was seeing Machado crumble to a knee while whif“ng on a Chris Sale slider for the “nal out of the 2018 season. The feeling here is that Machado is just too huge a talent for a team to sweat the unsavory parts of his makeup, but it should make the Yankees „ already a World Series contender „ think twice about paying him $300 million to potentially corrupt their young, talented core. Expect some anonymous hesitation to surface during the GM meetings, but its the time of year when poker faces prevail before the cards are shown later on.A NATIONAL CONUNDRUMIt feels as if weve been following the countdown to Bryce Harpers free agency ever since the Nationals made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft. And although D.C. is the only professional home hes known, there was no way Harper „ a client of agent Scott Boras „ was going to set his price before hitting the open market. On Friday, the Nationals made the procedural move of extending the $17.9-million qualifying offer to Harper, simply to ensure that theyll be compensated if he opts to sign elsewhere. As much as Harper has meant to the perpetually underachieving franchise in D.C., you have to wonder if GM Mike Rizzo „ and the Lerner family ownership „ would be OK with pressing the reset button to some degree and retooling around the next generation, which includes talented youngsters Juan Soto and Victor Robles. Then again, the Lerners do have a robust business history with Boras, so it wouldnt be surprising at all to see a megadeal struck at some point for him to stay with the Nats.BVW: AGENT OF CHANGE?Brodie Van Wagenen, introduced Tuesday as the 13th GM of the Mets, comes armed with a primary mission statement this offseason: Make the franchise a winner again. But the Wilpons bold move to tap this former CAA agent to lead their front of“ce is likely to have greater rami“cations across the sport, starting with how Van Wagenen is received by his new peers „ and the group he defected from. Both BVW and Mets COO Jeff Wilpon insist that the potential con”ict of interest has created no lingering suspicion from either the Commissioners Of“ce or the Players Association, but those are only words at this point. The proof will come this week when BVW winds up interacting not only with the other 29 GMs in this contained resort setting but other agents. Will it be as seamless as the Mets predict? Or could these uncharted waters be a little more turbulent than weve been led to believe? Dave Stewart, a former All-Star pitcher and agent, lasted only two years as GM of the Diamondbacks, so the BVW hiring still has to be considered an experiment in this realm. I know Im not the path of least resistance,Ž BVW said during his introductory news conference at Citi Field. The next few days should give us an idea of just how on the money that statement is.ANOTHER BEAR MARKET AHEAD?In the past few weeks, there has been speculation (hope?) that free agents will jump to sign much earlier this offseason after what happened a year ago, when waiting left many players out in the cold. From what weve seen already, that could be the case. The Dodgers David Freese and the Yankees Brett Gardner „ certainly not big-ticket free agents „ worked quickly to get new deals to stay put with their current teams, who ripped up their options for new one-year deals. Freese agreed to $4.5 million, a $1.5-million trim, and Gardner accepted $7.5 million (plus a $2-million buyout), down from his $12.5M team option. David Price, who shrugged off his postseason demons and should have been the World Series MVP, chose not to opt out of his current pact, staying with the $127 million he has remaining over the next four years. Clayton Kershaw, who “gured to be one of the big winter prizes, did opt out of his original seven-year, $215-million contract „ but only because he agreed Friday to a new three-year, $93-million deal to remain in Los Angeles. Friday was the deadline for teams to extend $17.9-million qualifying offers, with seven players reportedly receiving them „ Harper, Yasmani Grandal, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Patrick Corbin, A.J. Pollock, Dallas Keuchel and Craig Kimbrel. Its the smallest number of players to receive the qualifying offer since the system was implemented in 2012, and they now have until Nov. 12 to accept or reject the offers. If a player who gets the qualifying offer signs elsewhere, his former team receives a conditional draft pick, depending on market size and payroll, rather than a supplemental “rst-rounder, as it was before 2017. Were only in the “rst few days of free agency, but the activity could pick up in a hurry, with teams also looking to make trades to clear some payroll space. The Cubs and Indians reportedly are preparing to do so.Baseballs GM meetings could trigger flurry of free-agent activity By JEROME PUGMIREAP SPORTS WRITERPARIS „ Karen Khachanov upset a tired-looking Novak Djokovic 7-5, 6-4 to win the Paris Masters title and deprive Djokovic of the chance on Sunday to match Rafael Nadals record of 33 Masters titles. Djokovic, a record fourtime champion at the indoor event, looked out of energy after an epic three-hour semi“nal win against Roger Federer on Saturday. After also being taken to three sets by Marin Cilic in Fridays quarter“nals, Djokovics semi“nal “nished at around 8 p.m. local time and he felt he was unable to recover suf“ciently from that draining encounter. I didnt unfortunately. But I dont want to talk about that,Ž Djokovic said. I want to talk about how well (Khachanov) played all week and absolutely deserved to win today.Ž Asked again whether it was a case of emotional fatigue, after such an intense tussle with Federer, Djokovic repeated his praise for Khachanov. Karen played really well and he deserved to win,Ž Djokovic said. All the credit to him.Ž Although Djokovic broke in the fourth game to move 3-1 up and then led 30-0 on serve, the unseeded Khachanov broke him straight back and the momentum abruptly shifted away from Djokovic. I stepped in more inside the court,Ž Khachanov said. I started to move him and maybe he didnt expect that I could do it after being down 3-1 with a break.Ž Djokovic seemed agitated at times and twice turned to his box to remonstrate about an unspeci“ed issue during the “rst set. Khachanov broke for 6-5 when he hit a powerful shot down the line that Djokovic could only scoop back into the net. The Russian won the “rst set with a big “rst serve that Djokovic could not return, stretching out his racket in vain as the “zzing ball clipped the frame. Djokovic struggled to handle Khachanovs brutal two-handed, cross-court backhands from the baseline, which often landed near his ankles, and dropped his serve again to trail 2-1 in the second set. He had to save three more break points in the seventh game to hold for 4-3 down. He was playing big from the back of the court, ”at backhands and forehand. He can really hurt you,Ž Djokovic said. His serve is really, really strong and precise.Ž After both players held to love, Khachanov showed no nerves „ even though he was in his “rst Masters “nal „ and served out the match. He secured victory on his “rst match point when Djokovic chopped a backhand return wide. The imposing Khachanov thrust both his arms in the air and, moments later, knelt down to kiss the court. Its a breakthrough season. And this title, its a good year-end I would say,Ž Khachanov said. Maybe Im not crying, but still Im really happy.Ž Djokovic will return to No. 1 in the rankings for the “rst time in two years on Monday, but the Serb will be disappointed at missing out on a 73rd career title, having withstood the best of Federer on Saturday. Still, the Wimbledon and U.S. Open champion has plenty to feel good about after a 22-match winning streak, and he remains favorite for the season-ending ATP Finals in London, beginning Nov. 11. Im satis“ed of course and Im going to be No. 1 tomorrow. What more can I ask for? I mean, I won 20-plus matches in a row and had a most amazing last “ve months,Ž he said. Im getting into (the) season “nale feeling good about my game.Ž The 22-year-old Khachanov, ranked 18th, is the “rst Russian to win here since Nikolay Davydenko in 2006. Marat Sa“n won it three times before that. Two-time Grand Slam champion Sa“n won the last of his Paris Masters titles in 2004, when Khachanov was a young boy. I watched (Sa“ns) matches but later, not at the age of eight,Ž he said. Im just really proud of myself that I could be in this list of winners.Ž Khachanov added this title to the Kremlin Cup in Moscow last month for his third title of the year and fourth overall. He had won his previous three “nals, and said his 100 percent record helped him when he stepped on court against the 14-time Grand Slam champion. I was thinking, OK, (Djokovic) has, I dont know, 70 titles and I have three,Ž Khachanov said. But 3-0, you know? So maybe it was in the back of my mind.ŽKhachanov stuns to win 1st Paris Masters title Novak Djokovic of Serbia shows frustration during the “nal match of the Paris Masters tennis tournament against Karen Khachanov.

Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com The Sun | Monday, November 5, 2018 By RALPH D. RUSSOAP COLLEGE FOOTBALL WRITERNo. 7 West Virginia re-entered the top 10 of The Associated Press college football poll after another weekend in which the number of ranked teams losing reached double digits. Unanimous No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Clemson and No. 3 Notre Dame remained unchanged, and No. 4 Michigan, No. 5 Georgia and No. 6 Oklahoma each moved up a spot. The Mountaineers surged from No. 12 after beating Texas on a go-ahead 2-point conversion in “nal minute. Ten ranked teams lost this weekend, four in games against other ranked teams. Over the last two weeks, 21 ranked teams have lost, the most over a two-week span since the AP poll expanded to 25 in 1989. Iowa State was ranked for the “rst time this season, one of “ve teams to move into the ranking this week.POLL POINTSThere are seven teams in the ranking after Week 10 of the regular season that already have lost three times. If that seems like a lot, it is. Last season after Week 10, there were three teams in the Top 25 that had lost three games. In the previous “ve years, from 2012-16, there were a total of “ve teams ranked in the Week 10 AP poll that already had lost three times. Whats going on? A few logistical changes to the college football season are at least a part of the increase. The Big Ten went to a nine-game conference schedule in 2016, joining the Big 12 and Pac-12, meaning more opportunities for those teams to pick each other off. The Big 12 restarted its conference championship game last year after six-year hiatus. That condensed the conferences regular season, which from 2011-16 ran through the “rst weekend of December. Also, there has been an increase in September conference games in recent years. Still, the only scheduling change throughout the Football Bowl Subdivision this season is in the Sun Belt, which became the “nal conference to add a championship game. In conclusion: There are more opportunities for teams to lose, so the new normal is likely somewhere between this seasons seven ranked three-loss teams by Week 10 to last seasons three.THIS WEEK IN BAMAAlabama has been ranked in the top 5 for 49 straight weeks, the second longest streak to Miamis 55 weeks from Oct. 8, 2000-Oct. 26, 2003. There have been three other streaks of 48 straight top-“ve appearances: Alabama, preseason 2011-Dec. 8, 2013. Ohio State, preseason 1973-Sept. 20, 1976. Oklahoma, Nov. 16, 1953-Nov. 11, 1957.UPAll those ranked teams losing propelled a few teams to new heights in the Top 25. „ No. 13 Syracuse moved up nine spots to its best ranking since 1998, when the Orange got to No. 11. „ No. 14 Utah State is up four spots and has its best ranking since “nishing 10th in 1961. „ No. 16 Fresno State moved up four spots. The Bulldogs were last ranked this high in 2015, when they reached 15 with Derek Carr at quarterback. „ No. 17 Boston College jumped seven spots and has its best ranking since 2007, when the Eagles last played in the ACC championship game and spent much of the season in the top 10.DOWN„ Unbeaten No. 11 Central Florida fell two spots after beating Temple 52-40. The Knights ran their winning streak to a nations best 21 straight games. „ No. 9 LSU slipped “ve spots after being shut out by Alabama. „ No. 19 Florida dropped six spots after losing for the second straight week. „ No. 21 Penn State fell seven places after being blown out by Michigan.INThere is a lot of recycling going on in the Top 25 this season. While Iowa State is in for the “rst time since last season, No. 20 Washington, No. 22 North Carolina State, No. 24 Michigan State and No. 25 Cincinnati all reappeared in the poll.OUTUtah fell out, leaving the Pac-12 with only two ranked teams, No. 10 Washington State and No. 20 Washington. The last time the Pac-12 had only two ranked teams was Oct. 16, 2016. „ Houston and Virginia had one-week stays in the Top 25 after making their debuts last week. „ Iowa and Texas A&M fell out after losing for the second straight week.CONFERENCE CALLSEC „ 6 teams (1, 5, 9, 12, 18, 19).

Darnold tried to rally the sputtering Jets (3-6) from a 6-3 de“cit, but following a punt the rookie took a high snap and made an ill-advised throw to tight end Eric Tomlinson. Baker stepped in front for his “rst career interception and scored untouched. I didnt throw it with con“dence,Ž Darnold said. I just alligator-armed it „ threw it a little bit short.Ž Much of the game was a slog, but Baker provided a video highlight celebrating with his teammates. There is nothing like it,Ž he said, game ball cradled under his arm. It is the sweetest feeling ever, especially getting in the end zone, seeing your brothers running toward you.Ž T.J. McDonald and Walt Aikens made interceptions to end the Jets “nal two possessions. The guys did a good job of complementary football,Ž Dolphins coach Adam Gase said. They played together.

Gase improved to 5-1 against the Jets, including two wins this year. The Jets lost their third in a row and have scored 33 points during the skid. Theyve dropped nine of their past 10 road games dating to 2017. Darnold went 21 for 39 for 229 yards and a passer rating of 31.8. He came into the game tied for the NFL lead with 10 interceptions and the four picks were a new high. Two for sure hed like to have back,Ž coach Todd Bowles said. Back to the drawing board.Ž Cameron Wake and Akeem Spence had two sacks apiece for the Dolphins, who had allowed 102 points the previous three weeks. Everybody playing together, front to back side to side, and getting a win, thats about as rewarding as it is,Ž Wake said.TO THE BENCHJones, whose tendency to freelance has been an issue, watched the second half from the sideline. Gase said he didnt know whether Jones was hurt. It sounds like he pulled himself out,Ž Gase said. Ive just got to “nd out what happened there.Ž Jones didnt talk to the media after the game.DOLPHINS SUBMiami totaled only 168 yards, but Brock Osweiler improved to 2-2 as a starter “lling in for the injured Ryan Tannehill Osweiler went 15 for 24 for 139 yards and took four sacks, but his unit committed no turnovers. It was just a good old-fashioned “ght on the “eld, and it was fun,Ž Osweiler said. We won.ŽINJURY REPORTDolphins: LT Laremy Tunsil (knee) left in the fourth quarter. ...

GORMANASSOCIATED PRESSNEW YORK „ By the time Mary Keitany was pacing her way up Manhattans First Avenue, she had no reason to look back for challengers. The Kenyans lead was growing over the strong womens “eld with every stride, and all she thought about was the “nish line. Lelisa Desisa of Ethiopia didnt break out into a big grin until he pulled away from two opponents late in the race. In perfect crisp autumn weather for distance runners, Keitany and Desisa won the New York City Marathon on Sunday in near record times. Keitany, 36, became the second woman to win the marathon four times. She ran the race in 2 hours, 22 minutes, 48 seconds, the second fastest time for the course in history. Margaret Okayo of Kenya set the record of 2:22:31 in 2003. I can say the course record was not in my mind,Ž Keitany said. For me, winning was the most important.Ž Desisa, 28, held off countryman Shura Kitata by 1.99 seconds for his “rst win in New York, joining victories at the Boston Marathon in 2013 and 2015.

From that point, the question was not whether Keitany would win. Rather, it was by how much. She beat countrywoman Vivian Cheruiyot by 3 minutes, 13 seconds.

MISSED FIELD GOALS„None.NEW ORLEANS (AP) „ Michael Thomas caught a late 72-yard touchdown reception and then celebrated with a cellphone in a throwback to another famous New Orleans play, and the streaking Saints handed the Los Angeles Rams their first loss of the season with a 45-35 win on Sunday. Drew Brees passed for 346 yards and four touchdowns in New Orleans seventh straight win, and Thomas finished with a club-record 211 yards receiving. But what happened after their last connection of the day really stole the show in a wild shootout between two of the NFLs best offenses. Thomas long TD came on a pivotal third-down play with about four minutes to go, when the Rams seemed to expect the Saints to run a play closer to the first-down marker. Thomas ran free behind Marcus Peters, caught Brees long throw virtually in stride and ran straight to the goal post, where he got out an old-school flip phone „ reminiscent of Joe Horns Sunday night TD celebration in 2003.TEXANS 19, BRONCOS 17DENVER (AP) „ Brandon McManus missed a 51-yard field goal as time expired, leaving Demaryius Thomas a winner in his homecoming and Houston escaped Denver with a win. The Texans (6-3) won their sixth straight and the Broncos (3-6) lost for the sixth time in seven games. Thomas finished with three receptions for 61 yards, but two of them were back-to-back for 31 and 18 yards on the Texans opening touchdown drive. McManus second miss of the game came after Case Keenum completed an 18-yard pass between two defenders to Emmanuel Sanders on fourth-and-8 from the Denver 45-yard line.CHARGERS 25, SEAHAWKS 17SEATTLE (AP) „ Philip Rivers made his 200th consecutive start and kept Los Angeles surging at the midpoint of the season, surviving a late rally by Seattles Russell Wilson. Rivers threw for 228 yards and two touchdowns, Melvin Gordon added 113 yards rushing and the Chargers won their fifth straight with a 25-17 win over the Seahawks on Sunday. Rivers threw touchdown passes of 12 yards to Tyrell Williams and 30 yards to Mike Williams, and let the Chargers defense stymie Russell Wilson until the final minutes. Seattle had won four of five following a 0-2 start. Desmond King provided the deciding points for Los Angeles (6-2) by stepping in front of Wilsons pass for David Moore and returning it 42 yards for a touchdown with 6:44 remaining to give the Chargers a 25-10 lead. Wilson managed to make the final minutes nervous for Los Angeles.STEELERS 23, RAVENS 16BALTIMORE (AP) „ James Conner rushed for 107 yards and caught a TD pass for the Steelers (5-2-1), who have won four straight since falling to the Ravens at home on Sept. 30. Roethlisberger went 28 for 47 for 270 yards. His 1-yard run put Pittsburgh up 20-6 in the third quarter, and the 36-year-old showed his grit by missing only one play after being flattened during a sprint from the pocket with just over 13 minutes left. The Ravens (4-5) scored only one touchdown in their third straight defeat. Joe Flacco was limited to 209 yards passing and sacked twice. Pittsburgh opened the second half with a drive that lasted nearly seven minutes and ended with a 1-yard plunge by Roethlisberger. The conversion sailed wide to the right, keeping the score at 20-6.CHIEFS 37, BROWNS 21CLEVELAND (AP) „ Patrick Mahomes passed for 375 yards, threw three touchdown passes „ two to Travis Kelce „ and continued the best start by an NFL quarterback in 68 years as Kansas Citys impossible-to-handle offense kept rolling with a win over the Browns, who played their first game since coach Hue Jacksons firing. Kareem Hunt had two scoring runs and one receiving for the Chiefs (8-1), who came in averaging 36.3 points per game with an offense overloaded with weapons for Mahomes. The 23-year-old used all of them in winning his first pro matchup against Baker Mayfield and the Browns (2-6-1). Mahomes and Mayfield didnt match their epic college meeting in 2016, when they combined for more than 1,700 yards in offense. But the Chiefs put on another impressive offensive show with 499 total yards, averaging 8.6 per snap.VIKINGS 24, LIONS 9MINNEAPOLIS (AP) „ Danielle Hunter had 3 of Minnesotas franchise-record 10 sacks and a fourth-quarter fumble return for a touchdown, making for a miserable afternoon for Matthew Stafford and the Lions. Hunter, the fourthyear defensive end, also was credited with nine tackles and four quarterback hits as the Vikings (5-3-1) limited the Lions to 214 total yards. The Lions had a streak of 25 consecutive games with at least 14 points stopped in humbling fashion. Starting a stretch of three straight NFC North games with a badly needed win before their bye, the Vikings beat the Lions (3-5) at home for the first time in three matchups at U.S. Bank Stadium.BEARS 41, BILLS 9ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) „ Jordan Howard scored two touchdowns and the Bears defense had two others in a win over the Bills in what proved to be another comedy of errors for Buffalo and its anemic offense. Eddie Jackson scored on a 65-yard fumble return and Leonard Floyd returned a tipped pass 19 yards for another score some 3 1/2 minutes apart in the second quarter. Howard, set up by Tarik Cohens 38yard punt return then scored on an 18-yard scamper to cap a run in which the Bears scored four touchdowns over a span of 12 minutes, 20 seconds in the second quarter. The Bears won their second in a row and improved to 5-3 to match their best start to a season through eight games since 2013. Chicago also matched its win total from last year.FALCONS 38, REDSKINS 14LANDOVER, Md. (AP) „ Julio Jones ended his 12-game touchdown drought, Matt Ryan threw for 350 yards and four scores and the Atlanta Falcons flexed their offensive muscles with a blowout of the Redskins that extended their winning streak to three games. Jones caught seven passes for 121 yards with the biggest coming on a 35-yard screen pass with just under four minutes left that sealed the victory.

Harvick rocketed past polesitter Ryan Blaney in overtime Sunday, after the third restart in the “nal 35 laps, to win the Texas fall race for the second year in a row and take one of the four championship-contending spots for the season “nale in two weeks. We dont come here to count our “ngers and toes to try to “gure out how were going to make it. We want to earn it,Ž said Harvick, who led 177 of 337 laps. Today we earned our way in and were going to go and race again next week and try to win another race and see what we can do at Homestead.Ž After taking the inside on the “rst two restarts, and brie”y losing the lead after the second one, Harvick opted to start from outside for the green-white-checkered “nish. By time they got to the backstretch, Harvick had pushed his No. 4 Stewart-Haas Ford in front of Blaney and raced to his eighth win of this season and 45th overall. I thought if I could keep him from “nishing the corner I could drive back by him,Ž Harvick said. It all worked out.Ž Of Harvicks 32 starts in the Lone Star State, his only two wins are the last two fall races to get into the “nal four. The 2014 Cup champion has 20 top-10 “nishes at the 1 1/2mile track. He won both stages Sunday, marking the fourth time this year he did that and went on to win the race. With Harvick and Martinsville winner Joey Logano in the No. 22 Ford of Team Penske locked in, the series goes to Phoenix next week with only two spots up for grabs for the championship run at Homestead. Kyle Busch, a seven-time winner this year, and defending Cup champion Martin Truex Jr. are among the other six title contenders. They are comfortably above the cut line for points, but Chase Elliott or any of Harvicks three SHR teammates „ Clint Bowyer, Aric Almirola and Kurt Busch „ could advance with a win in Phoenix. Logano was third at Texas. Elliott was sixth, followed by Kurt Busch and Almirola, who had also gone to the rear at the start of the race for unapproved body modi“cations. Truex, who was close to clinching a title spot before that bump-and-run by Logano on the “nal lap to win at Martinsville last week, “nished ninth. Kyle Busch was 17th and Bowyer 26th after starting on the front row but making contact with Denny Hamlin on the “rst lap. After the “rst of the late restarts, Harvick was on the inside and was able to keep Blaney from clearing him on the backstretch. Harvick was already starting to rebuild his lead „ it had been nearly 4 seconds before the caution „ when another yellow ”ag came out. Harvick was on the inside again for the next restart, but Blaney was able to get by him for the lead. Blaney led seven laps before Harvick went under him and was again putting distance between them before Joey Gases spin brought out the last of eight cautions. They were hard. They were challenging,Ž Blaney said about the restarts. That was really the only shot we had to beat him, to be honest with you. We got by him one restart and I just couldnt hold him off. ... The last one, he took the top, like I knew he was going to go. He motored around me.Ž Truex had to start at the rear of the “eld because of an engine change. He also dealt with a loose tire and had a pass-through penalty during the race for driving through too many pit boxes, and was a lap down before getting that back one the “rst of the late cautions. We got a little bit of luck on our side after that to be able to get back on the lead lap. Happy about that for sure,Ž he said. To start exactly where we were I think is a decent day. The only difference is theres one less spot available.ŽLOOK OUT LOGANOTruex has vowed that Logano wont win the Cup title after what happened at Martinsville. Now Almirola is upset with Logano after one of the late restart in Texas. He just continues to make things harder on himself,Ž Almirola said. After working himself back to the front of the “eld, Almirola said Logano about wreckedŽ them both after coming down into his door in Turn 3. If thats the way he wants to race me when hes already locked into to Homestead and were out here “ghting for our lives, thats “ne,Ž he said. When Homestead comes around, if Im not in, hell know it.Ž Logano said they were still racing at the end in a tight turn.ERROR TO THE BACKJimmie Johnson was sent to the rear of the “eld after the No. 48 Chevrolet twice failed prerace inspection. NASCAR later said it erred in penalizing Johnson at the start of the race because his car passed inspection the third time. He had quali“ed 23rd for his 600th start with Chad Knaus as his crew chief. There is no format for the teams to communicate to the tower. So, whatever the tower says is the way it is,Ž Johnson said. This is just one of a few calls that have been wrong due to that situation. I dont know how they do it.Ž Johnsons teammate with Hendrick Motorsports, William Byron in the No. 24, was sent to the back of the “eld after three failed inspections. Just short of 100 laps into the race, Johnson got loose and wiggled in front of Byron, who ended up in a spin after making contact with his teammate.UP NEXTThe last race in the third round of the playoffs, Sunday at Phoenix.
