Sports WireGood morning To Joseph Angell Thanks for reading! newssun.com facebook.com/ newssuntwitter.com/ TheNewsSunRichie retires, for nowCommissioner thanked for 18 years of serviceBy PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ Jack Richie has spent the last eight years serving on the Highlands County Board of County Commission. He spent another 10 before that serving on various county advisory committees and heading up what was then the Highlands County Homeowners Association, a council made up of representatives from all the local homeowners associations from subdivisions and mobile home parks. During a presentation at Tuesdays Board of County Commission meeting, the last for Richie, Chair Greg Harris said two commissioners had served with Richie during his full eight-year tenure. You have been very passionate about your duties, youve been very passionate about the citizens of Highlands County,Ž Harris said. Youve been over-passionate about the ones, especially in Lake Placid at times, but you always did what they asked you to do and (those are) the comments that I hear.Ž Other commissioners had similar accolades. Board Vice Chair Jim Brooks said Richie has passion for all of Highlands County, which he saw when Richie was chair of the “rst “re assessment committee more than a decade ago. Commissioner Don Elwell said he learned a lot from Richie. He was literally a full-time commissioner: Ate it, lived it, breathed it. It was, you know, something where he poured himself into it every day and into many, many evenings, as well,Ž Elwell said. He said Richies dedication was a model to follow. Richie, a Lake Placid resident, has now opted to take a rest, at least for a couple of months. Elwell said Richie had said he looks forward to talking to all commissioners, now that he will no longer be bound by Florida Government-in-theSunshine Law. Look forward to some late-night phone calls from Jack, Greg,Ž Elwell said. Richie said he was glad to work with all the commissioners and the new county administrator „ Randy Vosburg „ and his team over the past nine months. We have to remember, its not about us. Its about Highlands County. That covers us, and we have to continue thinking in that direction,Ž Richie said. Earlier this year, Richie, a Republican, ran for re-election to County Commission District 4. He had one opponent: Arlene Tuck, also of Lake Placid. With no Democratic candidate, all voters were allowed to cast ballots on that race in the August primary. Tuck had 11,145 votes over Richies PHIL ATTINGER/STAFFJack Richie of Lake Placid, on left, greets Road & Bridge Director Kyle Green at a party to celebrate Richies eight years of service as a Highlands County commissioner. Election dayHow District 55 candidates spent their By PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ Win or lose, candidates for Florida House of Representatives, District 55, ended their campaigns on Tuesday. So what did they do to stump for those last-minute votes? Audrey Asciutto, D-Sebring, said she was up at 4:30 a.m. to put signs on the approaches to voting precincts and then started canvassing voters throughout the district with her volunteers, over the phone and door-to-door. She found people very receptive. What was super-surprising (is) people are planning on voting,Ž Asciutto said. Theyve said, Oh yes, we are planning on voting.Ž Representative Cary Pigman, R-Avon Park, spoke to the Highlands News-Sun from Okeechobee, after having already visited Sebring. I havent made it Glades (County) this week,Ž Pigman said. Its a big district.Ž He found a similar enthusiasm among voters he knows, both in Sebring and Okeechobee, when he visited their shops or of“ces. It was a change from his “rst campaign, he said. If we go back six years ago, a lot of people I called up had forgotten about the election,Ž Pigman said. Theyd say, Is that today? What I noticed now, is enthusiasm seems to be much higher than years past.Ž To what did he attribute that change? Pigman chuckled. (President Donald) Trump is quite a force,Ž Pigman answered. If you love him, boy he gets you mobilized into action. If you hate him, boy he gets you mobilized into action.Ž Asciutto said people had told her they wanted to end nationwide quarrels. One thing that Ive been running into across the political spectrum, they dont want the divisiveness,Ž Asciutto said. They want people to come together as a country, and they dont want to be hated, and they dont want to be scared.Ž She said an increase in reported hate crimes over the last two years has upset many voters, especially shootings that made national headlines in late October. She said women had reported more aggressive behavior. Had she PHIL ATTINGER/STAFFCampaign signs line Home Avenue in Sebring Tuesday outside the polling precinct at the Masonic Lodge 249 in Sebring.

Although their votes didnt count, they learned about the election process. LP Middle Guidance Secretary/Registrar Shelly Service said all the schools civics classes were involved as poll workers in the mock election. Highlands County Supervisor of Elections Penny Ogg helped make the student voting experience a success, she said. They brought in the voting stations/booth, ballot covers and rolls of I VotedŽ stickers. So the students are going to have a real voting experience,Ž Service said. Similar to an actual voting precinct, a table was set up with poll workers who had a list of the names from all the classes. The students who were voting went up to one of the student/poll workers who highlighted their name, Service said. At the next table, the voters received a ballot with a cover. After marking their ballot at the voting booth, the students dropped it into the ballot box and received their I VotedŽ sticker. It was so cool; I thought it was awesome,Ž she said. The one-page ballot was abbreviated from the General Election Ballot. It did not include the state house and senate elections nor the judge retentions and some of the State Constitutional Lake Placid Middle students on the left register to vote in a practice election Tuesday morning with the students on the right serving as poll workers.

BORDERTwo vehicle accident, one driver sent to ERBy KIM LEATHERMAN STAFF WRITERSEBRING „ A two-vehicle crash sent one driver to a local emergency room on Tuesday morning. The collision happened at Thunderbird Road and Fiat Avenue. It involved a ”atbed truck hauling a large drainage-type pipe belonging to Excavation Point Inc. and a maroon Cadillac sedan. The Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce responded to the scene but was waiting for the Florida Highway Patrol to take over the investigation. The deputy said the driver of the Cadillac came from North Egret Street. In an effort to cross Thunderbird Road to get to Fiat Avenue, the female driver reportedly failed to stop at the stop sign at Egret Street and continued northbound. The ”atbed truck was heading west on Thunderbird Road and hit the passengers side of the Cadillac. The car was forced off the road and “nally came to rest in a residential driveway facing north. The side air curtains and airbags were deployed in the Cadillac. The female driver of the sedan was taken to a local emergency room.

www.highlandsnewssun.com November 7, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A3Slow speed chase lands Sebring man in jailBy KIM LEATHERMAN STAFF WRITERSEBRING „ Frank L. Laws, 38, of Sebring was arrested by Sebring Police on Sunday, Nov. 5, just after 1 a.m. Laws is facing a felony count of resisting an of“cer and ”eeing law enforcement who were running with lights and sirens on; three felony counts of using a deadly weapon; resisting an of“cer without violence and possessing marijuana, less than 20 grams. Sebring police of“cers responded to a report of a subject using his black GMC vehicle to ram into a white Nissan Maxima driven by Ebony Watson. The driver of the GMC was identi“ed as Frank Laws. The arrest report states the of“cers were in marked police cars with lights and sirens on as they responded to the call. Dispatch told the of“cers that Laws was intentionally using his vehicle grill to repeatedly ram into the back of the Nissan. Of“cers located the duo on Sebring Parkway at Ben Eastman Road and the of“cers attempted a traf“c stop on Laws. The report alleges that Laws refused to pull the vehicle over and instead kept driving on Sebring Parkway, driving about 30 mph. Laws kept driving and turned north on Memorial Drive and continued to drive slowly, about 20 mph. The report shows that Laws kept driving and turned on Sunset Drive, turned east and “nally pulled the car over. The of“cers drew their weapons and approached Laws vehicle. Laws was not “nished resisting however; he refused to exit his GMC after of“cers gave several commands for him to do so and raise his hands as well. The arresting of“cer wrote that one of the of“cers holstered the “rearm and replaced it with his taser. Laws “nally exited the GMC but refused to comply with any other commands given by the of“cers. Eventually, of“cers were able to handcuff Laws before taking him to the county jail. Weston told police that Laws used the front of his car to strike the back of her car on purpose on three occasions; he allegedly hit her car at the intersection of East Center Avenue and Sebring Parkway, Broad Street and Grand Street, and at Harris Street and Lemon Avenue. The of“cers wrote that Weston kept driving because she was afraid of Laws. Upon searching the defendants vehicle, of“cers found a marijuana cigar. After running Laws license, dispatch told of“cers it was suspended in October for “nancial obligations.Ž The Highlands Clerk of Courts website shows multiple charges and court court cases against Laws since 1996 ranging from retail theft to domestic charges, and drug possession to driving on a suspended license and resisting arrest.

A4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | November 7, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Sebring man facing assault chargesBy KIM LEATHERMAN STAFF WRITERSEBRING „ Brian T. Farrell, 54, of Sebring ended his weekend with a stay at the Highlands County Jail after Sebring police of“cers arrested him Sunday, Nov. 4. He is facing two counts of third degree felony charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. According to the arrest report, of“cers were called out to a disturbance between neighbors in progress. The dispatcher also warned of“cers that the residents were waving canes, rakes and at least one had a loaded crossbow. When of“cers arrived, they approached Farrell who said he was simply walking his dog down the street when the “rst victim, Julio A. Roman Jr., stated yelling at him. A second victim, David Simmonds, said he saw the altercation and thought it arose from a previous incident with Romans son. According to the report, Simmonds said that Farrell told Romans son that he was going to sicŽ his dog on him. Reports state Roman said that he walked over to where Farrell and his dog were in the middle of the street when Roman swung his rake at Farrell, striking him in the hand. Farrell told the of“cer that he raised his walking stick to protect himself from Roman and his rake. Farrell told of“cers that after that, he proceeded to go back into his home. The report notes the walking stick had a pointed metal tip on one end. When of“cers spoke with Roman, he said he was out working in his yard when he and Farrell started arguing. Roman said Farrell was yelling at his dog in order to get it to attack him. The report states Roman said Farrell yelled get himŽ before he let go of the leash. Roman said the dog aggressively approached him and was wrapping himself around his legs. Roman was worried about the dog biting and used his rake to try and keep the dogs face away from him. He told the of“cers that Farrell then went after him with the walking stick and he once again swung the rake to defend himself. Roman said that Simmonds came to separate them. Farrell took his dog and went back into his house but exited a few minutes later with a pistol-styleŽ loaded crossbow. Roman did not see Farrell point the crossbow at him because he was looking elsewhere, but Simmonds told Roman and the of“cers he indeed pointed it at Roman, the report states. According to the victims, Farrell still had his dog and it was under control by then. Simmonds said Farrell was pointing the weapon at him and he began to walk to his residence. The arresting of“cer spoke with a witness to the disturbance who corroborated both Romans and Simmonds statements. Farrell was arrested, cleared at the local hospital and taken to jail. Farrell is still in jail with bail set at $20,000. FARRELLis to meet at 6 p.m. Thursday at the EAA Aviation Development Center at Sebring Regional Airport.

www.highlandsnewssun.com November 7, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A5Judge Dana Moore honored for election victoryBy JEFF ROSLOWPOLK SUN CORRESPONDENTPOLK COUNTY „ This past summer Dana Moore became the “rst African American judge for the 10th Judicial Circuit in six years and the Virgil Hawkins Bar Association honored her election to the position Nov. 1. In the Aug. 28 election Moore beat Stephen Pincket in his second run to be circuit judge, taking 61 percent of the vote. It was an upset as Moore, who ran with very few knowing who she was in the three-county area of Polk, Highlands and Hardee counties, said knocking on doors and working to get people out to vote was a key to victory. When it was announced it was our surprise she was going to run,Ž said Kenneth Glover, Polk Countys “rst black prosecutor, And she got elected in a landslide.Ž Her husband, Terrence, said it was like David beating Goliath. He had a name (people knew), he outspent us by leaps and bounds,Ž Dana Moore said Thursday. She said she thought her chance to win would be helped greatly if she could get before the voters and show she would provide justice for all.Ž If it was one person or 100 persons to spread my messageŽ she could do it, she said. It was not 100 people. It was essentially three: she, her husband, and a campaign worker. On Aug. 28 I realized those efforts worked and I could not have done it without my family, friends and supporters.Ž Moore was a Winter Haven attorney for 15 years and a childrens advocate, was a staff attorney for the 10th Judicial Circuit, a civil attorney for the Of“ce of Criminal Con”ict and Civil Regional Counsel in the 2nd District and a private practice attorney. She said she will do her best in serving in the three-county area and follow Judge Karla Wrights legacy, who was the “rst black female judge in the circuit. Wright died in September 2012, just a few months before she planned to retire from the bench. (Wright) planted the seeds, nurtured the seeds and watched them bloom. I hope she is happy with the harvest,Ž Moore said. Moores work in the area speaks to the commitment of the Virgil Hawkins Bar Association and that is to serve the community. That includes her volunteer work on the boards of the Healthy Start Coalition, Girls Inc. in Winter Haven, Chain of Lakes Achiever and New Beginnings High School in Winter Haven. This dedication to the community follows that of her predecessor, Judge Wright. When she “rst came to Polk County she was a blazing trail for us,Ž Glover said of Wright. She got to work, did this and that, and took on community service.Ž Of her qualities, professionalism and community service stood out most in her career. Polk County attorney Karen Meeks noted that of Wright, calling her a consummate professional shortly after she passed away. She expected the attorneys to be prepared,Ž she said. In her devotion to serve the community was some that she, along with her husband, Dr. Victor Wright, who passed away “ve months before her, was a quality for which both will be remembered. Area attorney Cassandra Denmark said Dr. Wright, a Bartow podiatrist for 29 years, was her grandsons mentor. Hed eat lunch at school with him, spend Saturdays with him and encouraged how important it is to get educated. He also helped to start the Virgil D. Hawkins Inc. Auxiliary in the 10th Judicial District. In 2011 the organization awarded $80,000 in scholarships to area high school students. They (Dr. and Judge Wright) had morals and values. They were the epitome of a family and would always give back to the community. He was a doctor and shes a judge, but they are both so humble,Ž Denmark said shortly after he died. With the election of Moore to circuit judge, Glover said the spotlight on Polk County can only shine brighter and help make the community grow, not only in population but in respect. I have the hope and we have the opportunity to be one of the greatest counties to live in,Ž he said. We welcome you. We will grow and be heard.Ž Circuit judges are elected to six-year terms and are paid $160,688 annually. experienced it? Oh, God, yes,Ž Asciutto said. People acted more empowered. They seemed to think they could be more rude to you or speak bad to you in public.Ž However, she said shed focused her campaign more on issues: Health care, education and economic development. She noticed a lot of voters had approached her at the precincts, while she was the safe zoneŽ away from the doors, for information on Florida Constitutional amendments. People seem to be sure about speci“c ones, like Amendment 4,Ž Asciutto said, the amendment to restore civil rights to paroled ex-convicts. I cannot recall anyone whos really been against it.Ž She even found, while working on her computer at the Okeechobee Dunkin Donuts, an older couple „ Trump supporters „ heard her talking about the election, asked her what she knew about the results, thus far, and told her of their grandchildren. She found out they also supported Amendment 4. It makes me want to cry,Ž Asciutto said. Across the board, people have been good with that.Ž Asciutto did take a moment, about 9:309:45 a.m., to congratulate Highlands County Commissioner Jack Richie, R-Lake Placid, at his last meeting before being replaced by Arlene Tuck, R-Lake Placid, who won the District 4 seat in August. Likewise, Pigman said he spent part of Tuesday outside of his own campaign at political rallies for Republican candidates for Florida Governor, Commissioner of Agriculture and Attorney General. Asciutto said she would probably join the votewatch party at Highlands County Democratic Party headquarters in Sebring. Pigman said he planned to spend part of the night at the Republican Club, gathering at Sebring Elks Lodge No. 1529. But “rst, he said, he needed to pick up one of his kids from middle school in Okeechobee and get them home. Life goes on,Ž he said.VOTESFROM PAGE 1A 9 SPEED AUTO TRANS, REAR PARK ASSIST, FRONT & REAR PASSENGER EXPRESS-DOWN adno=3628128-1 GM SUPERSTORECHEVROLET € BUICK € GMC € CADILLACALAN JAY ALAN JAY441 US Highway 27 N. | Sebring, FL 33870Sales (863) 386-6312 | Service (863) 402-4210Sales Hours: Mon-Fri 8:00 AM-7:00 PM, Sat: 9:00 AM-5:00 PMALANJAY.COM ALANJAY.COM ALANJAY.COMSEE ALL OF OUR INVENTORY ATLIKE US FOR DISCOUNTS, PROMOTIONS & MORE!!

One that stands out is the race for Agriculture Commissioner. It seems the the Democrats have nominated a lawyer, Nikki Fried, from farming Mecca of Fort Lauderdale as their candidate. A candidate that has a grand total of zero knowledge or experience in agriculture. She even admits she has no ties to rural farming parts of the state. Has she even raised a houseplant? Yet somehow, this person wants to run the agency that oversees the multi-billion dollar agriculture industry in Florida. Does this seem sane? On what planet does this make sense? It isnt about party; it is about quali“cations for a job and she is in no way quali“ed for this. To make this seem even more like you have stepped through the looking glass, she even has a slight lead in the polls?!? Please people, for the sake of Floridas farms, ranches and citrus, vote for Matt Caldwell. He is a seventh generation Floridian and as a member of the Florida House of Representatives has served and chaired committees that dealt directly with Floridas farms and natural resources. He comes from a ranching family. He knows the issues and problems facing Florida agriculture. You have to know that to vote for a lawyer who spent her life in the city and knows nothing about agriculture is just laughable.Dana Orr Avon Park Editors note: The above letter was received prior to the election, but too late to meet deadlines to run prior to Election Day.Climate change again?Has our local paper taken a turn to the left? Why is it running editorials from other papers insisting climate change is a problem we created, and we must “x? Sundays editorial has the Miami area worried about losing a foot or two over 50 years. Compared to Al Gores An Inconvenient Truth,Ž thats a win already. His predictions showed Sebring would soon be a coastal community. As someone who grew up in Michigan and watched the shoreline dunes absorb houses, and then spent 30 years in a coastal California community where we studied the causes of coastal erosion, I would point our friends in Miami to something other than government regulations to try to stop climate change. Our living planet, like all of us, changes over time. On coastlines, natural geo-physical causes include surface erosion as waves pull away sand and other deposits while sloughing destabilizes the subsurface. Man-made structures, like mansions and seawalls that impact the natural occurrences, are likely doing more damage to the coast than climate change. I dont deny natural climate change. However, to believe mans carbon footprint is a major factor we can change is expensive science “ction.Neal Hotelling SebringYOUR VIEW Semper gratus, Semper fidelisIt is good and proper for a man to eat and drink, and to “nd satisfaction in his toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given him … for this is his lot. Moreover, when God gives any man wealth and possessions, and enables him to enjoy them, to accept his lot and be happy in his work … this is a gift of God. He seldom re”ects on the days of his life, because God keeps him occupied with gladness of heart.Ž Ecclesiastes 5:18-20. As we celebrate our country, our work and lot,Ž and gather together with loved ones to share Thanksgiving, are you occupied with gladness of heart? Semper gratus, is Latin for always grateful. Thanksgiving itself is an expression of gratitude. Gratitude for those around us, for each persons life. For all we have and also what we dont have. Thanksgiving for our country, freedoms, accomplishments, and the ability to look to the future. Gratitude toward those who have helped and carried you, and grace toward those you now carry. This day you have been given should not be spent lightly, your story and talents not taken for granted. Gratefulness should be ongoing, daily, faithfully. Semper “delis, is Latin for always faithful. The motto of the United States Marine Corps, it is backed by the values of honor, courage and commitment. In November, we celebrate the birthday of the Marine Corps and also honor all veterans who have served and sacri“ced for our country. Service members who have committed to protect our country and our freedoms, faithfulness without compromise. If only we would commit such faithfulness to maintaining a sincere gratefulness all year long. What a change in perspective we would have. What a positive shift in culture we would see, and beautiful openness to others we would experience. So “nd lasting satisfaction and true thankfulness as you toil this life. Become pre-occupied with gladness of heart, remain always grateful and always faithful. Dedicated in honor of Grandma Betty Marine, who left this earth to be with her Heavenly Father on Nov. 4, 2018.

ChampionforChildren.org for information.OUR CHILDREN, OUR FUTURECarissa Marine Richie has served county wellFor the past eight years, Jack Richie has had a seat on the Highlands County Board of County Commission. The word spoken by his peers over and over Tuesday morning regarding his service was passion.Ž Richie, a U.S. Air Force veteran, retired from his financial company and settled into an activist life here in Highlands County in 1987. Before being elected, he proved his passion for the county and his willingness to be a public servant. He was active on the illegal dumping committee. He spoke up in 2005 as a resident of Sun N Lakes South when the county offered to help the Town of Lake Placid with its growth management. Richie wanted to make sure the residents of outlying subdivisions were not forgotten. One of his volunteer stints was that as chairman of the Highlands County Homeowners Association from 20012010. He also served as president of the Sun N Lakes South Volunteer Fire District. During his tenure, the district went from a fire barn to a modern fire station with new equipment, all funded through the special improvement district. Richies first run at County Commission in 2006 was lost in the primary election to J.D. Barrett. However, the loss did not hinder his concern and passion for the county or its residents. He was a regular fixture in the audience at most commission meetings. He was elected to the County Commission in 2010 and has served on a number of boards. He worked closely with the Florida Department of Transportation on the Lake June and McCoy Project to reduce roadway pollutants. He has also worked closely with residents of Highway Park, acknowledging that he alone cant get the neighborhood and its residents money for their projects, but he will continue to work with and support them. Richies last meeting as an elected commissioner was Tuesday. Board Chair Greg Harris said it has been a great honor to serve with Richie, speaking of how passionate Richie is about his duties to the citizens of Highlands County. Harris said the one thing that has been resonated through the county is that Richie has always done what the citizens have asked. Fellow commissioner Jim Brooks agreed that Richie has done a great job presenting Highlands County and all of its people. He recalled a time in the early 1990s when Richie, as chairman of the countys fire committee, joined in the conversations of forming a countywide fire service, just as recently been accomplished. Don Elwell said he too had learned a great deal from Richie. He said, Jack has literally been a full-time commissioner. He ate it, breathed it, lived it, poured himself into it every day, as well as evenings. His commitment has been a model to follow.Ž Richie thanked his fellow commissioners for their kind words. He voiced his support of County Administrator Randy Vosburg, saying he has done a fantastic job and the county now has a super team spirit.Ž He reminded the countys directors, many of who thanked him for his service, that its not about us (commissioners), but its about Highlands County.Ž Richie vowed he would be back in the commissions audience after Jan. 2, confirming Elwells comment about taking a short sabbatical. We also want to extend a big thanks to Jack Richie for his dedication to serving Highlands County. His successor, Arlene Tuck, will be sworn in as a first-time county commissioner on Nov. 20. She has some big shoes to fill.

Since then, Richie has focused on serving out his remaining time on the commission, but he is tight-lipped about his plans after the start of the new year. Ive been through about every committee in the county,Ž Richie said. Thats how I learned about problems (in the county).Ž Before being elected to the county commission in 2010, he served as the head of the countywide homeowners association, putting issues to the sitting county commissioners, based on those raised by members at the homeowners meetings. I had everyone in the county (government) involved in one way or another,Ž Richie said. Richie said in addition to county commissioners, hed have department heads make presentations to the members, helping residents understand more about what goes on in county government. Ann Pollard, who was on hand at Tuesdays send-off meeting, said county employees have continued to do this through the Lake Placid Breakfast Rotary meetings, something of a continuance of that tradition of reaching out to residents. Richie is also known for meeting with members of Highway Park, a traditionally economically challenged neighborhood in the greater Lake Placid area. Although he often told them I dont have any money for you,Ž he would say in the same breath that he would advocate for whatever programs and community initiatives residents wanted to create. One improvement the neighborhood saw in the last three years was gateway landscaping along U.S. 27, a $750,000 project through the Florida Department of Transportation. FDOT covered maintenance for the “rst year, after which the county took it over at approximately $37,080 per year. Although an assessment was proposed to pay for it, Evelyn Colon, executive director for the Highway Park Neighborhood Council, said residents couldnt pay that much. Most homes use three to four lots to get one house (built),Ž Colon said in 2015. Its a great community of hard-working people.Ž But she also said the facelift could invite more visitors and businesses, which would improve sales and property taxes. If you dont put things in, you cant expect to get things out,Ž Colon said. Everything really supports the other.Ž Richie talked to county administration at the time and got assurance the county could absorb the maintenance cost. This is for Highlands County, not just Highway Park,Ž he said, adding he didnt want to see the county lose $750,000 by not mowing the lawn.Ž Come on. Ill get out and mow the lawn,Ž Richie said. Richie also put work into “nding solutions for illegal dumping, which in his district was taking place in undeveloped areas of Placid Lakes and Highland Park Estates, but especially in Sun N Lakes South, near where the subdivision abuts State Road 70. In Highway Park, as with the landscaping, grant funds helped residents instill programs to do away with illegal dumps. Taking care of the problem elsewhere, including most northern parts of the county, involved having the County Commission pay for the Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce to hire and out“t an environmental crimes deputy, speci“cally to investigate illegal dumps and cite those responsible. For more recent work, Richie got thanks for helping ensure Highlands County has a countywide “re district and an assessment to pay for improvements. Marc Bashoor, Public Safety director and chief of Highlands County Fire Rescue, said he has talked with Richie extensively over the last three to four months, and thanked him for his advocacy. Richie, in turn, thanked him for giving attention to “re departments in Lake Placid, Placid Lakes, Sun N Lakes South, Highland Park Estates and Venus. The general feeling,Ž Bashoor said of Lake Placid area residents, is that the focus has (often) been on the north side of the county.Ž Richie said hes looking forward to some time off. Its been a tough time over the last six years, he said, with some family tragedy, including the death of his wife. For now, he looks forward to spending time with some of those family members, even for just a month or two. What hell do next, however, he isnt saying, but he “gures hell probably stay involved in the community, one way or another.RICHIEFROM PAGE 1A PHIL ATTINGER/STAFFCounty Administrator Randy Vosburg, standing, presents County Commissioner Jack Richie, at right, with plaques and a commemorative framed photograph of the Board of County Commission on his last meeting as a commissioner.

Lane carded rounds of 88-92 for a 180 total over the dif“cult and demanding El Campeon course, which features a hilly terrain. Im very proud of Lane,Ž said Sebring High School boys golf coach Vince Liles. El Campeon is one for the hardest courses in Florida to play from the “rst shot you make to the last putt you hole.Ž Revell, who enjoys practicing and works diligently to improve his game, had a solid regular season, but the Blue Streak golfer played his best when it counted the most by shooting a 78 at the regional tournament to earn a spot at the State Championship as an individual. Sebring shot a 338 to “nish third at the regional tournament. Only the top two teams advanced. Jesuit (Tampa) “nished “rst with a 308, while Lake Wales placed second with a 336. It was disappointing to miss going to state by only two shots,Ž said Liles. But we have a young team and were only going to get better.Ž Lane played steady golf at the State Championship, but a couple of bad holes each day hurt his score. Lane played great, he just had a few bad holes each day,Ž Liles said. Lane said it was the hardest course he had ever played and he looks forward to the challenge next year.

After locking up a spot in the Southeastern Conference championship game for the second year in a row, Georgia brie”y celebrated but quickly turned its attention to Saturday nights game against Auburn, the 122nd meeting in the Deep Souths oldest rivalry. Theres not anybody on our team thats going to be worrying about anything but Auburn,Ž coach Kirby Smart said Monday. Thats the next task at hand. Thats what we have to be focused on. Our goal is to play the next team, whoever the next team is, and we try not to have real big highs and no real big lows. We want to stay neutral, right in the middle.Ž The Bulldogs will get another shot at the team they faced in last years national championship game. Top-ranked Alabama, which hasnt been seriously challenged this season, locked up the SEC West title with another dominating win, 29-0 over LSU Both Alabama (9-0, 7-0 SEC) and Georgia (8-1, 6-1) are heavily favored to win their remaining regular-season games, which would set them up for de facto playoff game with the SEC title on the line Dec. 1 at MercedesBenz Stadium in Atlanta „ the same spot where they played their classic title game almost 10 months ago.

The Bulldogs take on Auburn on Saturday. The Freshwater Fishing Forecast for the second half of the first week of November gives anglers the second half of the new moon phase, (new moon occurs today) and a fall weather forecast which is ideal except for the lack of wind speeds over the next three days. All fishing factors considered, the new moon effect-level will be of medium strength since it occurs in the middle of the fourteen-day period between the lunar orbit perigee and apogee. And one of the mid-level characteristics is a weak wind speed usually below five miles per hour (mph), which is exactly what the forecast predicts until the weekend when an ideal wind of eight to ten mph occurs. Best Fishing Days: Today through Friday the new moon will cause fish to form larger than normal numbers of feeding fish for slightly longer duration when they do feed. Major Fishing Period: Today the moon is overhead at 12:18 p.m. and solar noon at 12:09 p.m. which will cause a feed intensity rating of 6-7 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. This period moves later daily by 45 minutes. Minor Fishing Periods: Today there are two minor periods.

While the Bulldogs are certainly eager to get another crack at Alabama, no one wants to talk about that matchup. Not yet, anyway. Clearly, the four players made available to the media on Monday had been coached up to talk only about Auburn (6-3, 3-3). We clinched the East „ thats great. Now its back to work,Ž defensive end Jonathan Ledbetter said. Were back to the drawing board getting ready for this week. Were not worried about anything down the line except Auburn.Ž One reporter pressed defensive back J.R. Reed even more, asking if there was ever a time he daydreamedŽ about facing Alabama. Do you daydream about Alabama?Ž Reed joked. I dont have to play em,Ž the reporter replied. Reed chuckled. No, I dont daydream about Alabama at all,Ž he said. Yeah, theyre on our schedule now. But were worried about Auburn.Ž Georgia locked up the East with an impressive 34-17 victory at No. 12 Kentucky completing another perfect run through the division side of its schedule. Ho-hum. Thats merely the “rst of several items on the Bulldogs checklist. There was a little celebration,Ž Reed said, but we know that winning the East doesnt mean that much.Ž Georgia opened as a 14-point favorite over Auburn, which is coming off one of the better performances of a disappointing season. The Tigers rallied from a 10-point de“cit in the fourth quarter to knock off Texas A&M 28-24 „ and an upset of the Bulldogs would really give 2018 a whole new perspective. These long-time rivals are certainly familiar with each other. This met twice a year ago, with Auburn romping to a 40-17 victory late in the regular season before Georgia bounced back with a dominating 28-7 triumph in the SEC championship game. Youve got two good football teams playing against each other, competing and playing their hearts out,Ž Ledbetter said. Its a physical game, always. Its one of my favorite games of the season, so Im looking forward to it. Im always looking forward to a challenge.Ž An even bigger challenge is still to come. But all that talk about a rematch with Alabama will have to wait. Every week we have to come with the same approach,Ž offensive lineman Andrew Thomas said. We have to win out the rest of the way to be where we want to be.ŽGEORGIAFROM PAGE 8A PHOTO BY CURTIS COMPTON /ASSOCIATED PRESSGeorgias Jonathan Ledbetter celebrates a 34-17 victory over Kentucky with the fans to win the SEC East on Saturday in Lexington, Ky.adno=3618486-1 no36184861 dn dn dn dn d d d o o o o o no o no no n n n n n 61 1 1 61 1 =36 =36 =36 =36 3 = = 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 486 6 486 6 86 486 6 86 8 848 848 848 48 48 4 84 84 4 84 8 84 8 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Savings Bushel Bag Your Own Specials!

Tune in online at www.newsjournalonline.com/ daytonamotormouthsCUP STANDINGS WHATS ON TAP QUESTIONS & ATTITUDECompelling questions ... and maybe a few actual answers Did Kevin Harvick just become the Cup favorite again? GODSPEAK: Harvick is the man. He called the Texas win after Martinsville and delivered. KENS CALL: Once he wins again at Phoenix, lets say he enters Homestead on a roll. Yep, the favorite. Whos the best bet to reach the Final 4 by winning at Phoenix? GODSPEAK: Given his rage after Texas, Im shifting my vote over to Aric Almirola to take that win. KENS CALL: If were assuming Harvick doesnt win, I tend to think its Chase Elliotts destiny to have a shot at Homestead. ARIC ALMIROLA VS. JOEY LOGANO: Almirola had a top-“ve car but “nished eighth at Texas because Logano shoved past him in the closing laps. Almirola is “ghting for his playoff life going into Phoenix. GODWIN KELLYS TAKE: Said Almirola: If that is the way he wants to race me ƒ and we are out here “ghting for our lives, that is “ne. When Homestead comes around, if I am not in, he will know it.Ž WINNER: Kevin Harvick REST OF TOP 5: Aric Almirola, Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott FIRST ONE OUT: Alex Bowman DARK HORSE: Kyle Larson DONT BE SURPRISED IF: Harvick wins. He called his shot at Texas and calls the shots at Phoenix.Now youre talking symmetry?Yes, symmetry. Everything just might be lining up in the proper order for the conclusion of the 2018 Cup Series season. Remember, on three different occasions this year, a driver put together a three-race win streak. Kevin Harvick did it beginning in Week 2. Kyle Busch followed in spring. And Brad Keselowski had his own hat trick starting in early September. Itd be “tting to end the year with another.Youre assuming Harvick wins Phoenix?He has a bit of a track record there, you know. Nine of his 45 career wins have come at Phoenix, including this past March, when he capped his three-race streak. If he does it again, he goes to Homestead with a chance at another three-peat and, of course, the championship. To help his cause, lets assume Joey Logano would be a little more careful around a guy like Harvick.„ Ken Willis, ken.willis@newsjrnl.com1. Kevin Harvick 4143 2. Kyle Busch 4128 3.

The Logano burnTwo races into the NASCAR Cup Series Round of 8 and Joey Logano has a pair of high-pro“le drivers giving him the stink-eye. Logano did a bump and run on Martin Truex Jr. at Martinsville and roughed up Aric Almirola at Texas during a late restart, which probably cost Almirola “ve “nishing positions. Both Truex and Almirola have vowed revenge, if necessary. Loganos haters list will likely grow at Phoenix.2. Bubble boy sagaHalf the Championship Round “eld has been decided. Any of the remaining six hopefuls can win at Phoenix and get in for Homestead. At least one driver will go in on points. Kyle Busch has a slim threepoint lead on Martin Truex Jr. In the must-win category are Chase Elliott, who is minus 39 to the leader, followed by Aric Almirola (-57) and Clint Bowyer (-73). I am “red up. Lets go,Ž Almirola said.3. Long truckersThe NASCAR Camping World Truck Series doesnt get much ink on this page because there is so much going on in the Cup Series. After taking a peek at this weeks schedule, well, just a tip of the hat to those truckers. First, it is a 2,100mile drive. Once they get to ISM Raceway in Avondale, Arizona, they do all their business Friday, starting with practice at 10:30 a.m. and ending with a race at 8:30 p.m. Chins up, guys.„ Godwin Kelly, godwin. kelly@news-jrnl.comJoey Logano is smiling now, after qualifying for the Championship Round, but is he making too many garage-area enemies to win the title? [AP/PAUL SANCYA] 1. Harvick calls itAfter a disappointing 10thplace “nish at Martinsville, Kevin Harvick said he would turn things around at Texas. He kept his promise. He led 177 of 337 laps and survived three late restarts and overtime to win and get his golden ticket to the Championship Round.2. Busch League dayKyle Busch had a rotten day at Texas. He “nished 17th. We had a fast car,Ž crew chief Adam Stevens said. You speed on pit road, you go to the back and you have a loose wheel under green, then lose a couple laps.Ž The only good news is that Busch remains up in points.3. Unusual veGenerally speaking, the drivers still alive in the NASCAR playoffs hog top-“ve positions out of desperation. Three of the top “ve drivers at Texas were not championship-eligible. Ryan Blaney, who started on pole, led the charge of the less fortunate with a second-place showing.„ Godwin Kelly, godwin. kelly@news-jrnl.comKevin Harvick celebrates on top of his race car after winning Texas.

AROUND TOWN SECTION B Wednesday, November 7, 2018 Sebring Art, Wine and Jazz Festival hits the right notesBy SHARON WEATHERHEAD CORRESPONDENTHighlands County came alive last weekend with excitement at the Sebring Art, Wine and Jazz Festival downtown on the Circle. The event was presented by Duke Energy and was brought to you by the Highlands Art League. The sounds of jazz “lled the air on Saturday and Sunday. Entertainment was provided by Emanon Jazz, Craig Singleton and the Big City Band, Wings of Faith Praise Team and Take 6, featuring Charlie Redd on stage in Center Park. Artists of all types including paintings, ornaments, holiday decorations, jewelry, pottery, ceramics, woodworking and various handmade items, “lled the tents along the spokes of the circle.

The high-energy duo of Eric Gunderson and Stephen Barker Lisles, who are songwriters, guitarists and producers of their own music, will be joined in Sebring by the Nashville-based duo Dairy Daughters, featuring Avon Parknative Shelby Dressel. Dressel gained local and national fame as a 2009 American Idol “nalist and partners with Minnesota-native Megan Gertken in the group. The outdoor festival-style concert will be presented by Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center and Visit Sebring, Lake Placid and Avon Park. Dairy Daughters open the show at 6:30, followed by Love and Theft at approximately 8 p.m. ACM, CMA and CMT-nominated Love and Theft got its start in 2006, and very quickly started turning out music that rose the charts and appealed to a broad country music audience. By 2009 the duo had released its “rst hit album RunawayŽ and by 2011 the No. 1 Angel EyesŽ was released. As a songwriter, in 2009 Liles co-wrote the Martina McBride hit Wrong Baby Wrong Baby Wrong,Ž and the group now regularly performs the track in live shows. The longtime music partners agree that their potent musical chemistry re”ects their personal rapport. The thing about us is that we really are best friends, and thats helped to get us through the tougher times,Ž Gunderson said. At the same time, though, were different enough personality wise that the combination works. Stephens naturally a more social person than I am, and Im a little more introverted. He tends to see the best in every person and every situation, and Im kind of the opposite. My songwritings different from his, and when were in the studio, his approach is different from mine. The way we play guitar is different. The way we arrange songs is different. But our differences come together to make something that each of us couldnt do on his own.Ž The pairs second-nature chemistry led them both to agree that the occasion of their third album called for the bold musical statement that Whiskey On My BreathŽ would ultimately become. In some ways, weve played it safe in the past, and I think were COURTESY PHOTOLove and Theft will play at Sebring International Raceway on Saturday.Scribblers & Scribes to meetSEBRING „ The FWA group, Sebring Scribblers & Scribes, will have their monthly meeting for November today, Nov. 7, at 6 p.m. at Cowpokes Watering Hole Restaurant (863-314-9459), 6813 U.S. Hwy 27 South in Sebring.

www.highlandsnewssun.com November 7, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B3Lake Placid loves these audiobooksThe Rooster BarŽ by John Grisham takes you inside a law “rm thats on shaky ground. Mark, Todd, and Zola came to law school to change the world. Now, as third-year students, these close friends realize they have been duped. When they learn that their school is one of a chain owned by a shady New York hedge-fund operator who also happens to own a bank specializing in student loans, the three know they have been caught up in The Great Law School Scam.Ž Danielle Steels The Right TimeŽ is an intimate, richly rewarding novel about pursuing ones passion and succeeding beyond ones wildest dreams. Abandoned by her mother at age 7, Alexandra Winslow takes solace in the mysteries she reads with her devoted father „ and soon she is writing them herself, slowly graduating to dark, complex crime stories that re”ect skill, imagination, and talent far beyond her years. After her fathers untimely death, Alex is taken in by the nuns of a local convent, where she “nds 26 mothers to take the place of the one she lost, and the time and encouragement to pursue her gift.Ž The StoreŽ by James Patterson doesnt just want your money „ it wants your soul. Imagine a future of unparalleled convenience. A powerful retailer, The Store, can deliver anything to your door, anticipating the needs and desires you didnt even know you had. Most people are “ne with that, but not Jacob and Megan Brandeis. New York writers whose livelihood is on the brink of extinction, Jacob and Megan are going undercover to dig up The Stores secrets in a book that could change the entire American way of life.Ž Murder Games,Ž also by James Patterson, is next on our list. A wealthy hedge fund manager is brutally murdered on the doorstep of his Upper East Side town house in Manhattan. Elizabeth Needham, the tenacious cop in charge of the case, turns to an unlikely ally … Dylan Reinhart, a brilliant professor whose book turned up in connection with the murder. Along with the book was one other clue: a single playing card. When another dead body and another playing card are found, Elizabeth and Dylans worst fears are con“rmed. Theyre hunting for a serial killer.Ž Elin Hilderbrands The IdenticalsŽ is a summertime story about identical twins who couldnt be any less alike. Nantucket is only two and a half hours away from Marthas Vineyard by ferry. But the two islands might as well be worlds apart for a set of identical twin sisters who have been at odds for years. When a family crisis forces them to band together „ or at least appear to „ the twins slowly come to realize that the special bond that they share is more important than the sibling rivalry thats driven them apart for the better part of their lives.Ž Other good listens include: Camino IslandŽ by John Grisham, The RisingŽ by Ryan DAgostino, The People vs. Alex CrossŽ by James Patterson, The Romanov RansomŽ by Clive Cussler.

But eventually you come around and realize that you need to be true to yourself. I dont mind that songs like Whiskey On My Breath and Everybody Drives Drunk may be a little controversial, because theyre honest, and I think that theyll make people think about how they feel about life. Those songs are both really personal for us,ŽGunderson continued. They show a side of us thats legitimately us, and how weve grown up and matured in the time that weve been in this business. But there are plenty of songs on this album that are just good, fun songs, and thats still a side of us too.Ž General admission to the Saturday evening concert is $30.

By ADAM C. SMITHTAMPA BAY TIMESTALLAHASSEE „ Florida broke the hearts of Democrats once again Tuesday, as President Donald Trumps anointed gubernatorial candidate, Ron DeSantis, edged out presumed frontrunner Andrew Gillum. The photo “ nish delivered Floridas top of“ ce to the GOP for a sixth straight election, and is sure to leave Democrats shattered about how they could lose an election where they seemed to have so many advantages. Dozens of polls showed Gillum consistently holding a narrow lead over DeSantis, and state Democrats were optimistic that the presidents unpopularity, DeSantis close association with Trump and enthusiasm among Gillum supporters would end two decades of utter GOP dominance over state government. Democratic strength in urban areas fell barely shy of overcoming the overwhelming Republican strength most everywhere else. The result is that Republican not only will continue to control the governors of“ ce and Legislature, but Gov.-Elect DeSantis also will appoint three state Supreme Court justices and shift the court rightward for a generation. An Ivy League former Navy JAG, DeSantis, 40, was in many respects the status quo candidate, promising to keep Florida heading in the direction it is already going. The highest turnout midterm election Florida has seen in decades served as a referendum on Trump, who two years ago narrowly won Floridas 27 electoral votes. To a lesser extent, it also served as referendum on 20 years of one-party Republican rule. Florida validated both, even if it was a squeaker. And a nerve-wracking night. After polls in most of the state closed at 7 p.m., early returns showed Gillum and Democratic incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson slightly ahead. At DeSantis election night gathering at Orlandos Rosen Centre Hotel, about 200 people quietly and nervously sipped cocktails and looked at their phones in the dimly lit ballroom. Then, shortly after about 8 p.m., returns from the western Panhandle in the Central Time Zone came in. Gillums small lead quickly shrank then reversed to a slight lead by DeSantis and Rick Scott. Congressman Matt Gaetz, a close DeSantis ally and surrogate, walked past the area where reporters were cordoned off from the crowd to proclaim, with a “ st pump, the Panhandle is coming in!Ž Im so anxious and so excited!Ž he said, throwing his head back.

By BRIANNA KWASNIKSTAFF WRITERAfter two years of hard work and campaigning, the Charlotte County Yes! For Success amendment came to fruition. Yes! For Success, also referred to as the millage referendum, proposed homeowners pay an additional $1 for every $1,000 of property value. The plan will bring an additional $17 million to the district. Members of the School Board and supporters of the referendum were at the Historic Charlotte County Courthouse in downtown Punta Gorda to watch the results come in. With early voting and mail-in ballots counted, the referendum showed an early and wide lead. In the end, the community voted in favor of the referendum by over 10,000 votes. Im thrilled that the community saw the value and voted to support the referendum,Ž said Sue Sifrit, a former School Board member who spearheaded the referendum in Charlotte County. School Board Vice Chairman Lee Swift was also present at the courthouse to watch the results come in. He said he feels better about retirement, knowing the referendum has passed. Cara Reynolds won the election for his seat. I think it puts us on the road for a lot of good things,Ž he said. The district intends to tap a citizen oversight committee to monitor the spending of the referendum revenue, and report to taxpayers. When meeting with the public, the School Board told the public that dollars raised from the referendum would help provide competitive pay for staff.

Bill Nelson campaigns in Orlando.SENATE: SCOTT LEADS IN TIGHT RACERepublican Gov. Rick Scott led incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson at press time in a razor-thin race for the U.S. Senate. Nelson was seeking a fourth term. Democrats needed a Nelson win to keep alive their hope of capturing a Senate majority. With 99 percent of the statewide vote counted, Scott was leading Nelson by about 57,000 votes. Scott had 50.36 percent of the state vote to Nelsons 49.64 percent.This was the most di cult Senate race Nelson had faced. Scott, a wealthy former hospital executive, poured $60 million of his own money into the race. It was a largely negative campaign, with Nelson criticizing Scott as an untrustworthy Trump supporter who has used the governors o ce to increase his wealth. His supporters also hit Scott for the states environmental problems, calling him Red Tide RickŽ for the deadly algae that has killed millions of “ sh o the Florida coasts. Scott depicted Nelson as a confused, empty-suit politician who has achieved little in his time in Washington. „ Sta report

The race for Rooneys seat has been dramatic, including three Republican candidates ganging up against each other in the primary, to the untimely death of Democrat candidate April Freeman. Though Freemans name was still on the ballot, Freemans votes went to newcomer Allen Ellison. With 206 of 234 precincts reporting Tuesday night, Steube received 62.1 percent of the vote, or 186,817 votes. Ellison received 37.9 percent of the vote, or 113,777 votes. From day one, this campaign has been about bringing real conservative reforms to Washington that will help hard-working Floridians across this district and across our great state,Ž Steube said Tuesday night. It is imperative that Congress “x our broken borders and immigration system, protect our economy, and ensure that the sacred rights we proudly enjoy as Americans are safeguarded at every step of the way.Ž During his editorial meeting with the Sun Steube said he wanted to be a part of committees focused on agriculture, since District 17 has more cattle than peopleŽ and is the top citrusproducing district. With his gun in his holster, Steube advocated for gun-free zones to protect citizens Second Amendment rights. Im proud of the campaign that weve run and the enthusiasm felt from all of the people around the district. It has truly been a humbling experience to learn about the issues that matter to so many,Ž Ellison said Tuesday night. Whether in Congress or in the private sector, there is much work that we can do together.Ž What people should focus on is the results Republicans have had in the recent years in Florida,Ž Steube said. When working with Democrats, Steube said he would compromise on some issues, if there are any he agrees with. But everything the Democrats are putting out arent things Im going to support,Ž he told the Sun Thursday, citing Nancy Pelosi as a major hurdle for the GOP. My focus would be to try to get candidates back in the seats we lost,Ž he said. While campaigning, Ellison was skeptical of Steubes overwhelming support of Trump. You are representative of the people of your district, the people of this country. You should never go into Congress with the sole aim to represent the President.Ž I could not be more eager to get started and help President Trump continue to Make America Great Again! God Bless you, your families, and our great country,Ž Steube said Tuesday night. As for 2020, Ellison plans to run again for the seat. A 2020 run has always been the goal,Ž he said. With a full ”edge campaign, adequate time and resources, we know that we can chart a path to victory.ŽEmail: Lhardaway@sun-herald.comBy BRIANNA KWASNIKSTAFF WRITERAfter almost a year of campaigning, Cara Reynolds will take Lee Swifts position on the Charlotte County School Board for District 1. Reynolds, who announced her candidacy in January, was at Leroys Southern Kitchen & Bar in downtown Punta Gorda Tuesday night watching the results come in, surrounded by family and supporters. Reynolds, who has three children in Charlotte County Public Schools, formerly taught in Charlotte County schools for seven years. She advocated for transparency in the School Board, and making meetings more accessible to the public. She also ran on the premise of pushing for better mental health training for staff, expanding vocational training, improving treatment of teachers, and using teachercreated baseline tests administered early in the year, and one end-of-year test, rather than statewide testing. Swift, who is retiring from the board after 24 years, and who also is Reynolds neighbor, said she worked hard to get the position. Reynolds and her family were out campaigning throughout early voting and on election day at various polling locations. In response to her victory, Reynolds sentiment was short: Its fantastic. Im thrilled and ready to get to work.Ž Superintendent Steve Dionisio and chairman Ian Vincent stopped by Leroys to congratulate Reynolds on her victory. ŽIm looking forward to working with Cara,Ž said Vincent. I got to know all three candidates, I felt like I wouldve been able to work with any of them. I dont know that much about Cara, but I know her hearts in the right place and like all of our current School Board members, know that shes going to make decisions in students best interest.Ž Reynolds won the seat with 56 percent of the vote, just shy of 10,000 votes over her opponent, Cathy Janiak. Janiak was across town watching the results come in at Buffalo Wings & Rings in Port Charlotte. I spoke with Cara and gave her my congratulations. I wish her all the best as she begins her tenure on the board,Ž Janiak said.By DANIEL SUTPHINSTAFF WRITERA Heartland native, Florida Rep. Ben Albritton (R-Wauchula) pulled away early to win the State Senate District 26 seat in Tuesdays General Election against political newcomer Catherine Price (D-Lake Wales). At the time of this report, Albritton received 116,983 votes where Price had only received 62,687 in the district, which encompasses all of Hardee, DeSoto, Highlands, Glades and Okeechobee counties, as well as parts of Polk, Charlotte and Lee counties. Charlotte, Hardee and Highlands counties were still tallying their results. It is a huge task to be a State Senator,Ž said Albritton. Its a huge blessing that our constituents turned out and chose us.Ž The seat opened up when current Sen. Denise Grimsley (R-Lake Placid) made an unsuccessful run in the Republican primary for state commissioner of agriculture. Campaign fundraising was an early sign of the mountain Price had to climb. In the end, Albritton raised just over $340,000 for his campaign, whereas Price raised just under $49,000, according to the most recent reports from Floridas Division of Elections. While Albritton believes fundraising helped his campaign in reaching the districts constituents, his partys message played just as much a part of the win. I believe that our message about being deeply interested in every corner of the district and spending time talking to voters has shown our constituents that we care,Ž said Albritton. Thats not going to change when we walk through the door in Tallahassee. It was important to them and it is important to me.Ž Price, a nurse and public health administrator, promoted better health care and improved access to affordable care in the state. There is a lot that needs to be done in Florida,Ž said Price. I think that I did the best that I could. I think that we traveled extensively (but) its a very conservative area. I hope that my opponent will make himself more available to the community and understand the problems that are out there.ŽEmail: dsutphin@sun-herald.comBy BETSY CALVERTSTAFF WRITERRepublicans will hold on to their 14-year sweep of the Charlotte County Commission as incumbent Stephen R. Deutsch easily beat Joan V. Fischer in Tuesdays election. Deutsch pulled in 61 percent or 52,038 votes to Fischers 38 percent, 32,722 votes. Fischer was the “rst Democrat to run for the County Commission in at least 10 years. Hes done a good job,Ž said voter and former Punta Gorda City Council member Kim Devine. I worked with him for four years. Hes steady, and we have a lot of changes coming, a lot of big things with Sunseeker (the planned resort in Charlotte Harbor). Hes knowledgeable. To have someone who doesnt know the job could be detrimental.Ž I stuck to the issues,Ž Deutsch told the Sun I ran on my record.Ž There was no love lost between the two candidates. Neither expects to run again. Deutsch is 78 and Fischer, 85. Deutsch saw many of his campaign signs removed, and felt that Fischer should have known about that. Fischer said her signs were removed too, by county staff enforcing sign rules. Asked if she would congratulate Deutsch, Fischer said with a smile, If I see him.Ž Fischer had accused the commission of failing to be transparent in its deliberations and decision-making „ an accusation that frustrated Deutsch. If were in an elevator, we dont even talk,Ž he said of the commission members. The last Democrat to sit on the commission was Sarah Devos, elected in 2004. After that, Democrats that became commissioners had switched parties before running. Fischer said she is glad she ran. It was important that I ran this time. That will encourage Democrats to run (in Charlotte County),Ž she told the Sun It has motivated the Democratic party to participate, to know that they are not alone. So many people think they are the only Democrat here.Ž One group that voted for Fischer was those angry with the commission for removing septic systems, and forcing those residents to pay for sewer connections. Fischer campaigned on getting the county to pay for the connection, and gained some voters that way. I heard from a young woman who is a DeSantis and Scott (Republican) voter. She was going to vote for Fischer,Ž said local Democrat Marie Coscia. She said she feels that commissioners are into the sewer projects for the money end of it ƒ Joans looking to curb some of that.Ž Deutsch also aggravated some by refusing to blame the algae problem with red tide on human pollution, as scientists have not been able to show that. He doesnt pander,Ž Devine said of his refusal to fan the ”ames of blame about red tide. Bob Peterson of Port Charlotte is a staunch Republican, and he voted for Deutsch even though Deutsch is a moderate New England-style Republican. Hes a very friendly guy.

And, shell get that chance. Only 362 votes separated Carey and incumbent candidate Rachel Keesling in Tuesdays election. When the final numbers were in, Carey won with 51.7 percent, or 5,565 votes, to Keeslings 48.3 percent, or 5,203 votes, according to the Charlotte County Supervisor of Elections Office. I feel overwhelmed by the support of our community,Ž said Carey. I met so many people during the course of the campaign that were supporting what I stood for and I was hoping that it would turn out this way. ...

With all precincts reporting Tuesday, incumbent County Commissioner Alan Maio handily beat his Democratic opponents in “nal results reported by Supervisor of Elections Ron Turner. Maio defeated Wesley Anne Beggs to earn a second term on the county commission representing District 4, which is mainly the Siesta Key area. Maio received 108,400 votes or 53.89 percent to Beggs 92,738 votes or 46.11 percent. Attempts to reach Maio on his victory were unsuccessful. We ran a good race,Ž Beggs said. Im so proud of how far weve come, and Im so thankful for the many people who believed in me.Ž As the results of early voting were posted, Maio posted only a narrow lead over Beggs. But as results of same-day voting rolled in, the incumbent increased his margin of victory to the “nal totals when the votes of all precincts were tabulated. Yet, as Beggs re”ected on the numbers for her, she saw positives in the results. I think it shows the community is ready for a change,Ž she said. According to “nal results on the supervisor of elections website, 66.10 percent of the countys 318,384 registered voters cast ballots in Tuesdays general election. Maio will be sworn in for his next term later this month. The county experienced only one problem with voting Tuesday, with the Sarasota Herald Tribune reporting Tuesday afternoon that there was a problem with ballots for Precinct 501 in Osprey, which was quickly recti“ed, according to the story.Email: jondaltonwr@gmail.com SARASOTA COUNTY COMMISSION D ISTRICT 1 SINGLEDISTRICT By ALEXANDRA HERRERA STAFF WRITERNORTH PORT „ North Port residents will see little change to the City Commission this year, with incumbent Jill Luke winning against newcomer Peter Bartolotta in the District 5 race. Luke, who was elected in May 2017 during a special at-large election, will continue to represent District 5. District 5 covers The Jockey Club through the West Villages. The race between Luke and Bartolotta was close with Luke winning by 1,964 votes; she had 13,742 votes compared with Bartolottas 11,778. Luke said she plans to keep the momentum going in the commission and is very grateful for the support. Luke added City Hall has come 180 degrees since she was elected in 2017 with all the changes to departments and leadership. There is so much going on,Ž Luke said. She said she plans to continue working with the commission on the Warm Mineral Springs master plan, the opening of the citys new pool, policies, procedures and the continued expansion in the West Villages „ she also added that these are exciting times in the city of North Port with all the changes going on. Our residents took a stand for their city,Ž Luke said. She added the race was very politically run and the residents made their voices heard during the election. Bartolotta, who ran his “rst City Commission race, was also thankful following his loss. While Bartolotta has no plans to run again, he said that running the campaign has been humbling. He added that hearing from voters, listening to conversations and having meaningful conversations had been the best part. Bartolotta was thankful to everyone who supported him through his run and his own team. He added that he was willing to help the city however they may need it, but he plans to stay retired. I look forward to a bright future,Ž Bartolotta said. Bartolotta previously served on the North Port Economic Development Advisory Board and founded Vision North Port in 2006. Bartolotta said residents should remain involved and stay engaged.Email: aherrera@sun-herald.comBy ALEXANDRA HERRERA STAFF WRITERNORTH PORT „ Pete Emrich was victorious Tuesday night and will represent District 4. Emrich ran unsuccessfully in 2017 against current Commissioner Jill Luke, but will now “ll the seat of outgoing Vice Mayor Linda Yates. Emrich ran against newcomer Kevin Rouse for the district. District 4 covers the Biscayne Drive and Tamiami Trail areas of the city. Emrich is married to Englewood Sun Community News Editor Elaine Allen-Emrich. Emrich said it has been a long year and it has been fun. We set our goals and have achieved that,Ž Emrich said. Emrich worked for the city for 20 years. He said he is looking forward to working for the city again. Emrich received 61 percent of the votes on Tuesday night, while Rouse received 38 percent. I had a lot of pride and I get to go back and work with the same people. Its an opportunity I cherish,Ž Emrich said. During his speech at Olde World Restaurant and Lounge, Emrich said he appreciated the support and said he believed in everything the city stands for. He plans to push for better customer service for residents, tidying up the Uni“ed Land Development code, developing Warm Mineral Springs and ensuring city funds are spent responsibly on budget. While Rouse lost to Emrich, he said he plans to continue to be involved with the city. Weve run a positive campaign and only responded in defense,Ž he said. He added he respected the voters choice, but this race proved how much each vote counted. Rouse said he and his family will continue to grow their network and work with the city.

While Rouse has no plans to run again in the city of North Port, he plans to run again in Sarasota County. I will represent North Port,Ž Rouse said.

Newcomer, of sorts, Christian Ziegler defeated his Democratic opponent Ruta Maria Jouniari. In the District 1 seat contest, Ziegler gained 112,206 votes or 55.54 percent against Jouniaris 89,835 votes or 44.46 percent of the total votes cast. Ziegler and Jouniari were vying for the open District 1 seat, which is in the North Sarasota area, after current Commissioner Paul Caragiulos decision last December to forgo another term. Ziegler had received Caragiulos endorsement for the seat last December when the incumbent announced that he would not seek another term. Attempts to reach Ziegler were unsuccessful. In an ironic twist, the campaigns run by all four candidates in this years election will be the last countywide races for the County Commission. By an overwhelming majority Tuesday, county voters approved a change to the Sarasota County Charter for so-called single-member districts, meaning a candidate for the commission will be elected only by the voters in his or her speci“c district. Ziegler, husband of Sarasota County Schools Board Chair Bridgette Ziegler, will be sworn in for his “rst term later this month.Email: jondaltonwr@gmail.com EMRICH LUKE MAIO ZIEGLERBy SCOTT LAWSONNORTH PORT EDITORSARASOTA „ Sarasota County residents voted overwhelmingly to change the county charter so commissioners will no longer be voted for by the entire county electorate. The charter amendment was pushed by Sarasota Alliance for Fair Elections who gathered more than 15,000 signatures to get the question on the ballot. It was about 60-40 percent in favor of the single-district view, with 114,538 for while 76,707 were against the change. Currently, commissioners represent a speci“c district they live in, they are elected at large by all county residents. Single-member districts were abolished by county voters in 1994 in favor of the current system. A representative with Sarasota Alliance for Fair Elections was unavailable for comment by deadline Tuesday night. In North Port, city voters approved a charter amendment that replaces the current City Charter with one that, of“cials say, offers clarity to the document. There have been 16 amendments to the charter since its inception,Ž North Port City Commissioner Debbie McDowell recently wrote in a column. Some amendments were simple and some were complex. Every time there is an amendment, it requires a referendum and the voters get to decide if that amendment will be incorporated into the existing charter.Ž The numbers for the change were about 58-42 percent in favor of it „ with numbers coming out to 14,418 for and 10,158 against.Voters want return to single-district electionsNorth Port voters OK charter referendum Alan Maio maintains seat on County Commission Jill Luke retains City Commission district PHOTO PROVIDED BY LORETTA MARTINNorth Port City Commissioner Jill Luke speaks to supporters at Common Grounds in North Port after her win Tuesday night.Christian Ziegler wins County Commission seat Pete Emrich wins City Commission District 4 SUN PHOTO BY MONICA AMAYANewly elected North Port City Commissioner Pete Emrich celebrates his victory with his wife, Elaine Allen-Emrich, who is the Englewood Sun community news editor, on Tuesday night in North Port.SUN PHOTO BY JERRY BEARDArea Democrats react to the news of another national seat won from Republicans.Election night drama

The Sun | Wednesday, November 7, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5 SARASOTA/DESOTO COUNTIES 2018 ARCADIA/DESOTO STATE SENATE DISTRICT 23 STATE HOUSE DISTRICT 74 By WARREN RICHARDSONSUN CORRESPONDENTSARASOTA „ Supporters of the Legacy Trail were in a cheering mode Tuesday night as Sarasota County voters approved a referendum allowing for the expansion of the popular trail. With all Sarasota County precincts reporting Tuesday night, 137,853 voters, or 70.58 percent, cast ballots in favor of the measure compared to 57,470 votes or 29.42 percent opposed. The question on Tuesdays ballot asked voters to allow Sarasota County of“cials to borrow up to $65 million to purchase an additional 6 miles of abandoned railroad corridor to extend the Legacy Trail into downtown Sarasota, and construct the entire 9-mile extension. The referendum was necessary since the purchase price exceeded the $22.6 million limitation in the countys charter on the countys borrowing power without voter approval. We are just thrilled,Ž said Andrea Seager, co-chair of the group Vote Yes for the Sarasota County Legacy Trail Extension. Were extremely grateful to the county commission for the opportunity to ask the residents of Sarasota County if they wanted the Legacy Trail extended. Its been a long, long haul and were just really, really thrilled with the results.Ž Earlier, Seager indicated supporters had talked to a multitude of county voters about the referendum and received few negative comments about it. With the passage of the referendum, county of“cials will now prepare for a closing on the remaining 6 miles of abandoned corridor. That closing is scheduled to take place in May, contingent upon passage of the referendum. According to county of“cials, the borrowing of the $65 million will occur through the issuance of two bond series. The “rst series of bonds will be issued in 2019 in the amount of $35 million. That will cover the acquisition costs of the next segment at $30.1 million and design and engineering work. The latter will include work on connections to the trail in Venice and North Port. The second series of bonds will be issued in 2020 in the amount of $30 million which will be used to construct the extension of the trail. According to estimates by the countys budget staff, approval of the referendum will result in a property tax increase of $16 on a home with a taxable value of $200,000.Email: jondaltonwr@gmail.comBy CRAIG GARRETTARCADIAN EDITORTuesdays election held few surprises for DeSoto County. But one man did astonish even his close supporters. Former Arcadia councilman Lorenzo Dixon finished second in a four-person race for three open council seats. The citys mayor, Judy Wertz-Strickland, cruised to re-election with about 50 more votes than Dixon. In an unofficial tally, Councilman Keith Keene finished a single tick behind Dixon with 872 votes. Civic-minded Jackie Tucker was outside the circle with 771 unofficial votes. Roughly 53 percent of DeSotos 16,735 registered voters turned out on Tuesday, a sizable number of those in early results choosing state Republicans over Democratic rivals. I will try to do my best to not disappoint,Ž Dixon told a supporter following a fairly quick one-hour tally after DeSotos 15 polling stations closed at 7 p.m. The DeSoto Board of County Commissioners has one new face and a veteran returning to his seat at the Nov. 27 swearing-in ceremonies. Republican J.C. Deriso dispatched Democrat Mark Anderson with about 58 percent of the votes, while incumbent Democrat Elton Langford carried the evening with nearly 75 percent of the vote over No Party Af“liation candidate Brian Cho Chung Hing, a newcomer in DeSoto politics. Deriso replaces long-serving Commissioner James Selph, who retires from public service after 48 years. Deriso ran an unusual campaign „ no social media. It was old-fashioned shaking hands and listening to concerns,Ž he said. And I credit Mark (Anderson) with running a clean campaign. I cant say enough about that.Ž Langford gained some added prominence in July in opposing phosphate giant Mosaic Fertilizer in its bid to mine in DeSoto County. That issue comes before a third-party mediator in the near future, however. I am humbled by DeSoto County taking care of me, right to the end,Ž Langford said.By STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERRepublican Joe Gruters will serve as the District 23 state senator in Tallahassee, defeating Democrat Faith Olivia Babis. Gruters wound up with a commanding lead in both in Sarasota and Charlotte counties. I am incredibly grateful to serve the community I love,Ž Gruters said. He promises he will “ght every dayŽ in Tallahassee to represent his constituents in Sarasota and Charlotte counties. Gruters won with 56.48 percentage of the vote with 142,752 votes to Babis 110,003. Among Gruters accomplishments, he served as Florida House of Representatives District 73 representative for Sarasota and Manatee counties. He has been the chairman of the Republican Party of Sarasota County since 2007, and served as cochair of President Trumps Florida campaign. Nominated by President Trump to serve on the Amtrak board of directors, Gruters is currently awaiting U.S. Senate con“rmation, his campaign website states. Serving as a state senator and on the Amtrak board isnt mutually exclusive, he said. Gruters told the Sun editors he believed protecting the environment was critical, but job growth and the economy topped his list of priorities. Gruters wants to fund more research into red tide and take bigger steps toward fixing the algae problems involving Lake Okeechobee. I knew I was in for a tough battle,Ž said Babis. She feels she ran a good, competitive race. Babis works as peer mentor at the Suncoast Center for Independent Living and serves on the Citizens with Disabilities Advisory Board for the City of Sarasota. She believes she brought to light many of the issues the disabled face. Among the issues, she campaigned for expanded Medicaid coverage and social services. In Sarasota County, with all of its precincts counted, Gruters received 112,528 votes, 55.28 percent of the ballots cast, while Babis saw 91,021 votes, 44.72 percent of the ballots cast. With 36 of Charlotte Countys 36 precincts within District 23 counted, Gruters received 29,379 votes, 61.49 percent of the ballots cast.

Buchanan, the son of U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, recently moved to the south part of Sarasota County to ensure he lived in the district. He handily defeated South Venice attorney Tony Mowry in the State House race. Buchanan works in real estate and calls himself an entrepreneur. He bested North Port Vice Mayor Linda Yates in an August primary. We worked very hard; left it all out on the “eld and I am overwhelmed with the support we received,Ž Buchanan said. He said a grassroots effort assisted with the win. Weve knocked on tens of thousands of doors with people on one-onone settings. Weve run a very positive campaign and I think people responded to that.Ž Buchanan won with a “nal total of 51,166 over Mowrys 36,469, a 51-40 percentage win with a third candidate picking up the rest of the votes. In the State House, he said his goal is to make sure we keep Floridas economy on the right track ... and weve got a lot of local issues to concentrate on.Ž Buchanan said hed like to get improvements to River Road expedited and push on red tide research to help “ght the slog that polluted Gulf Coast waters much of the last year. He credited Mowry with running a positive campaign as well. Mowry is a Venice attorney specializing in elder law. He is an alum of Venice High School who attended North Central College and Temple Law School. He is currently a major in the U.S. Air Force Reserves. Obviously we knew the numbers were tough in this district,Ž Mowry said when learning of the results. (President Donald) Trump won by 23 „ but we gave it our best shot. We showed that theres excitement, but we just couldnt get to the numbers.Ž District 74 represents much of South Sarasota County, from Nokomis to Englewood, all of North Port and a huge swath of eastern portions of the county. A third candidate, independent Robert Kaplan, managed about 2.5 percent of the votes cast.

My job was to make these two candidates I ran against govern from the middle,Ž Kaplan said. Kaplan, who said he is 63, said he wont be running for of“ce again, noting he didnt feel he received support from media in its coverage of him. This is my third and last run.

Matt Caldwell was leading Democratic lobbyist and lawyer Nikki Fried in the race to replace departing Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam. Caldwell is a real estate appraiser and seventh generation Floridian who served as chairman of the House Government Accountability Committee. He served eight years in the House. Fried based a large part of her campaign advocating for the medical marijuana industry and criticizing the states implementation of a constitutional amendment approved by voters allowing its use. Fried would be the first woman elected as Florida agriculture commissioner. MIDTERM ELECTION 2018 CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER AGRICULTURE COMMISSIONERSTATE AMENDMENTS ATTORNEY GENERAL TALLAHASSE (AP) „ Republican Chief Financial Of“cer Jimmy Patronis was leading former Democratic Sen. Jeremy Ring as he tries to keep the of“ce he was appointed to when Jeff Atwater resigned last year. Patronis served eight years in the state House and was a member of the board that regulates the states utilities when Scott appointed him the states top “nance of“cial in June 2017. Ring is a former Yahoo executive from Broward County. He served in the state Senate from 2006 to 2016.By TERRY SPENCERASSOCIATED PRESSBALLOT QUESTIONSFlorida voters passed bans on greyhound racing, offshore oil drilling, using electronic cigarettes in most businesses and made it more dif“cult for casino gambling to expand and taxes to be increased. The 12 constitutional amendments required 60 percent to pass and all but Amendment 1 passed. They number 1-7 and 9-13 after the state Supreme Court removed Amendment 8 from the ballot. Amendment 13 banned dog racing in Florida by 2021. Thats a blow to the industry thats been dwindling over the past two decades. Only “ve other states have active dog racing. Since Amendment 4 passes, it could have a long-lasting impact on the states politics as most felons who complete their sentences will now have their voting rights automatically restored. It does not apply to murderers and rapists. More than 1.5 million ex-felons couldnt vote in Florida, and critics of the states felon voting ban say it disproportionally affects minority voters who tend to support Democrats. Here are the remaining ballot questions: „ Amendment 1 was the only measure that failed. It would have increased the states property tax homestead exemption from $50,000 to as much as $75,000 on homes worth more than $100,000. It was just below the 60 percent threshold. „ Amendment 2 passed. It will permanently keep in place a 10 percent cap on property tax assessments for commercial and rental properties that is current law, but is set to expire next year. „ Amendment 3 easily passed. It will require statewide voter approval to expand casino gambling in Florida, taking control out of the hands of the Legislature. „ Amendment 5 passed. It will require a two-thirds majority vote before the Legislature could increase taxes or fees. „ Amendment 6 passed, providing additional rights to crime victims and would raise the mandatory retirement age for judges from 70 to 75. „ Amendment 7 passed. It will require a supermajority vote before state university boards of trustees can raise fees. It will also pay death bene“ts, including help with education expenses, to the survivors of “rst responders who die on the job. „ Amendment 9 passed. It prohibits oil drilling in state waters and ban vaping in work places where smoking is already prohibited. „ Amendment 10 passed. It will require the state to create an Of“ce of Domestic Security and Counter-Terrorism and maintain a Department of Veterans Affairs, which already exists. It also sets the start of the annual legislative session to January instead of March in even-numbered years and requires counties to elect a sheriff, tax collector, property appraiser, elections supervisor and circuit court clerk. „ Amendment 11 easily passed. It allows the Legislature to make some changes to criminal laws retroactive. It would also repeal language in the constitution thats now considered obsolete. „ Amendment 12 passed. It bans elected of“cials, agency heads, judges and others from paid lobbying while serving and for six years after leaving of“ce instead of the current two. TALLAHASSE (AP) „ Republican Ashley Moody defeated Democratic state Rep. Sean Shaw, keeping the states top law enforcement position in Republican hands. Moody is a former judge and federal prosecutor from the Tampa area who has criticized Shaws lack of experience in the courtroom. Shaw would be Floridas “rst black attorney general. He is the son of the late state Supreme Court Justice Leander Shaw. He campaigned as a consumer advocate and called for new gun restrictions.

MOODY PATRONIS CALDWELL Patronis elected chief financial officerAgriculture Commissioner: Caldwell defeats Fried Moody defeats Shaw for Attorney General By STEVE PEOPLESASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ Democrats were gaining signi“cant ground in the battle for House control Tuesday night, while Republicans held onto their majority in the Senate as voters weighed in on the “rst nationwide election in Donald Trumps turbulent presidency. With control of Congress, statehouses and the presidents agenda at stake, some of the nations top elections were too close to call. Democrats won half the seats they needed to claim House control with dozens additional competitive contests remaining. Victories in contested races across Florida, New York, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Minnesota gave them cause for optimism. The Democrats narrow path to the Senate was slammed shut after setbacks in Indiana, Tennessee, North Dakota and Texas. Trumps team immediately sought to give him credit for retaining their narrow Senate majority, even as their foothold in the more competitive House battle“eld appeared to be slipping. Its a huge moment and victory for the president,Ž Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters at the White House Tuesday night. Two issues more than any others were on voters minds. 25 percent described health care and immigration as the most important issues in the election, according to AP VoteCast, a national survey of the electorate. Nearly two-thirds said Trump was a reason for their vote. Democrats, whose very relevance in the Trump era depended on winning at least one chamber of Congress, were laser-focused on health care as they predicted victories that would break up the GOPs monopoly in Washington and state governments. The political and practical stakes were sky-high. Democrats could derail Trumps legislative agenda for the next two years should they win control of the House. And they would claim subpoena power to investigate Trumps personal and professional shortcomings. Some Democrats have already vowed to force the release of his tax returns. Others have pledged to pursue impeachment, although removal from of“ce is unlikely so long as the GOP controls the Senate or even maintains a healthy minority. Yet Trumps party will maintain Senate control for the next two years, at least. In Texas, Sen Ted Cruz staved off a tough challenge from Democrat Beto ORourke, whose record-smashing fundraising and celebrity have set off buzz he could be a credible 2020 White House contender. In the leadup to the election, Republicans privately expressed con“dence in their narrow Senate majority but feared the House could slip away. The GOPs grip on high-pro“le governorships in Florida, Georgia and Wisconsin were at risk as well. Long lines and malfunctioning machines marred the “rst hours of voting in some precincts, including in Georgia, where some voters reported waiting up to three hours to vote in a hotly contested gubernatorial election. More than 40 million Americans had already voted, either by mail or in person, breaking early voting records across 37 states, according to an AP analysis. Nearly 40 percent of voters cast their ballots to express opposition to the president, according to AP VoteCast, the national survey of the electorate, while one-in-four said they voted to express support for Trump. Overall, 6 in 10 voters said the country was headed in the wrong direction, but roughly that same number described the national economy as excellent or good. The presidents current job approval, set at 40 percent by Gallup, was the lowest at this point of any “rst-term president in the modern era. Both Barack Obamas and Bill Clintons numbers were 5 points higher, and both suffered major midterm losses of 63 and 54 House seats respectively. Democrats needed to pick up two dozen seats to seize the House majority and two seats to control the Senate. Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin in West Virginia and Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin won re-election. And in New Jersey, Democrats re-elected embattled Sen. Bob Menendez, who, less than a year ago, stood trial for federal corruption charges. The Justice Department dropped the charges after his trial ended in an hung jury. Democrats performance in the House battle“eld was mixed. In Virginia, political newcomer Jennifer Wexton defeated two-term GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock. The Republican incumbent had been branded Barbara TrumpstockŽ by Democrats in a race that pointed to Trumps unpopularity among college-educated women in the suburbs. In south Florida, former Health and Human Services Secretary Donna Shalala defeated Republican Maria Elvira Salazar. Democrats failed to defeat a vulnerable incumbent in Kentucky, where Republican Rep. Andy Barr won over former Marine “ghter pilot Amy McGrath. All 435 seats in the U.S. House were up for re-election, although fewer than 90 were considered competitive. Some 35 Senate seats were in play, as were almost 40 governorships and the balance of power in virtually every state legislature. Meanwhile, several 2020 presidential prospects easily won re-election, including Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Tuesdays elections also tested the strength of a Trump-era political realignment de“ned by evolving divisions among voters by race, gender, and especially education. Democrats were most optimistic about the House, a sprawling battle“eld set largely in Americas suburbs where more educated and af”uent voters in both parties have soured on Trumps turbulent presidency, despite the strength of the national economy. Democrats faced a far more dif“cult challenge in the Senate, where they were almost exclusively on defense in rural states where Trump remains popular. Democratic Senate incumbents were up for re-election, for example, in North Dakota, Indiana, and Missouri „ states Trump carried by almost 25 percentage points on average two years ago. History was working against the president in the Senate: 2002 was the only midterm election in the past three decades when the party holding the White House gained Senate seats.Dems gain in quest for House control but GOP retains Senate Voters wait in line in the gymnasium at Brunswick Junior High School to receive their ballots for the mid-term election, Tuesday, in Brunswick, Maine.

The Sun | Wednesday, November 7, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7 Pigman wins final termAlbritton elected to Florida Senate, District 26By PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ Cary Pigman, by a 2-1 margin, won a “nal two-year term as Florida Representative for District 55. Because of term limits, he will not be allowed to run again. The old joke is that you spend three terms practicing and then in your last term you get to run some things,Ž Pigman, R-Avon Park, said Tuesday after district-wide results were published. His challenger, Democrat Audrey Asciutto, said she was disappointed with the election results, of course, but overall she thought the midterm elections gave a great showing for Democrats in the area. Next for me is to kind of keep moving forward,Ž said Asciutto, who works in real estate. Im going to keep selling houses and keep active in the community.Ž Of the 55,877 votes cast in District 55, Pigman received 36,848, or 65.94 percent, and Asciutto received 19,029, or 34.06 percent. Locally, the PigmanAsciutto race was a little more of a 2-1 ratio. Out of 39,106 local votes cast for District 55, Pigman took 25,181 votes, or 64.39 percent. Asciutto took 13,925 votes, or 35.61 percent. Overvotes were at 3, while the undervotes totaled 1,019. Pigman also took the majority of votes in Glades and Okeechobee counties, as well as the portion of St. Lucie County that is in the district. Meanwhile, Ben Albritton, R-Wauchula, has claimed the state seat vacated by former Republican Sen. Denise Grimsley of Zolfo Springs. Albritton gained 117,719 votes in District 26 „ 65.1 percent of the ballots „ over 63,100 votes, or 34.9 percent, cast for Catherine Price, D-Lake Wales. Total votes cast were 180,819. In the District 26 Florida Senate race, Highlands County voters mirrored the 2-1 ratio. Out of 39,161 votes cast in the Florida Senate race, 26,302, or 67.16 percent, voted for Albritton while 12,859, or 32.84 percent, chose Price. One overvote was tallied, along with 966 undervotes. For his part, Pigman complimented Asciutto for running a very policy-oriented campaign,Ž which he said he also did. She presented her positions well,Ž Pigman said. We can feel passionate about issues.Ž One of those issues was health care, which Asciutto argued from a patient side and in which Pigman works as an emergency room physician. He said hes looked at health care in a non-partisan fashion, and that would be one issue he would address when he returns to Tallahassee. I will look at how we can provide more care to more people,Ž Pigman said. Asciutto said she plans to stay active in advocating for greater health care coverage for all people. She believes that many have gotten the message about the need, but perhaps many more did not during her campaign. Maybe the last “ve to six months was not enough time,Ž Asciutto said. Pigman also said he has a couple of water projects in the district he wants to see completed; the Spring Lake Improvement District request for water and sewer infrastructure along U.S. 98 being one of them. Pigman said he has seen water projects completed in the districts other counties: Glades and Okeechobee counties. Highlands County is deserving,Ž he said. PHIL ATTINGER/STAFFPat Myers, independent voter, stumps for gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum on Tuesday along Sebring Parkway, on the street outside Polling Precinct 25, the Church of Christ. Myers said she was tired of the hate and vicious verbal attacks between people, and she hopes to see more constructive dialogue between opposing viewpoints.AP council winners are Gray, Sutherland and SpurlockBy MARC VALEROSTAFF WRITERAVON PARK „ Brenda Gray came out on top in the Avon Park City Council election Tuesday night, with 1,402 votes as of press time. The top three vote getters, out of a “eld of seven, will win the council seats available in this election. Rounding out the top three are Maria Sutherland with 1,165 votes and Stanley Spurlock with 1,051 votes as of press time. It was a lot of hard work,Ž Spurlock said. I am very excited. I am ready to go to work to move Avon Park forward.Ž Im ecstatic, a lot of hard work,Ž Sutherland said. I think we can get a lot done for the city. I look forward to working with Brenda Gray.Ž Gray said she got back into town Tuesday evening after doing some business and got the word that she won. She thanked God and thanked the voters for the opportunity to continue her service to the city. She said she will do her best for the city. When Gray asked who else won, Highlands News-Sun informed her of the vote totals. Gray said she hopes to work together with those newly elected to the council for the betterment of the city and hopes there will not be any personal agendas.Ž The remaining City Council candidates garnered the following as of press time Tuesday night: Craig Marans, 593 votes; incumbent Terry Heston, 978 votes; Charles Howell, 438 votes; and incumbent Dora Smith, 690. Heston served three terms on the council, while Smith served one term, having been appointed in 2015. At Precinct 2, the Avon Park City Council Chambers, Will Simmons said Tuesday afternoon he was voting for the big onesŽ the races for governor and the U.S. Senate. What about the Avon Park City Council race? No, those arent really that important,Ž Simmons replied. Art Williams said the important races included the governor, City Council and the amendments. Have you been tracking the Constitutional amendments? Absolutely,Ž he replied. Outside the City Council Chambers, Avon Park City Council Candidate Maria Sutherland, wearing a sun hat, shaded herself from the afternoon sun with one of her campaign signs. If I dont win at least I will walk away with a tan,Ž she said with a laugh. She hasnt seen too many of the other candidates at the polls, Sutherland said. I havent seen or heard any other candidate come by other than [Craig] Marans and [Stanley] Spurlock,Ž she said. Us three are the only ones that have been out holding up signs. The Avon Park “re“ghter union has been out here supporting us. We have had quite a few citizens come out and sit with us, as well. It has been great. It has been a real fun experience.Ž There was a total of 6,317 votes cast in the city election, with 15 overvotes and 2,143 undervotes. The winners will be sworn into of“ce at an organizational meeting of the city council at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13. Council members are elected to serve a three-year term.Steube easily takes congressional seatBy KIM LEATHERMAN STAFF WRITERSEBRING „ Highlands County voters chose Republican Greg Stuebe over his Democratic opponent, Allen Ellison of Sebring. The “nal tally, as of press time on Tuesday night, was Steube with 66.09 percent or 25,885 of the votes to Ellisons 33.91 percent or 13,280 votes. The total number of votes calculated by the Highlands County Supervisor of Elections website showed a total of 39,165 votes. According to ”oridaelectionwatch. gov, in the district Stuebe earned 192,704 votes, or 62.26 percent. Ellison received 116,812 votes, or 37.745 percent. The total votes cast in this race was 309,516 as of press time. There was a total of 39,165 votes cast, with 3 overvotes and 960 undervotes. Steube is from Sarasota and will be representing Floridas 17th Congressional District, which covers several counties, in total or in part, including Highlands, Charlotte, Glades, Hardee, Hillsborough, Lee, Manatee, Okeechobee and Polk. The seat became available after incumbent Republican Thomas Rooney decided to retire. Steubes victory was not a surprise as he ran in a predominantly Republican district. In Highlands County alone, the registered voters are divided as follows: Democrats with 18,037 registered voters; Republicans with 27,461 and othersŽ at 13,774. This is according to the Highlands County Supervisor of Elections as of Oct. 9. Steubes platform was one of conservative values and included second amendment rights, immigration policies that include building the wallŽ to fruition, and having a pro-life stance. Ellison was “ghting an uphill battle as he took up his candidacy after the unexpected death of fellow Democrat, candidate April Freeman on Sept. 23. The Florida Democratic Party decided Ellison would be its best hope to win the congressional seat. Ellison did not have much in the way of campaign funds, while Steube had well over $100,000. Ellison also ran a race in which his name was not even on the ballot as the General Election ballots had been approved and printed before Freemans sudden death. The ballots would be used and voters were informed by the Supervisor of Elections that a vote for Freeman would count as a vote for Ellison. Ellison was born in Avon Park and is the CEO and founder of Center for Economic & Policy Development. His platform was to address the issues of immigration and health care reform, curbing gender inequality, global warming and “nding a solution to help those with disabilities. GRAY SPURLOCK SUTHERLAND STEUBE ELLISONGovernors race goes to DeSantisBy PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ As of 11 p.m. Tuesday, the Florida Division of Elections had yet to call the governors race. However, Democrat Andrew Gillum conceded the race to former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis shortly after 11 p.m. Results showed DeSantis, Republican, with a tiny lead over Gillum: 4,015,047 votes (49.87 percent) versus 3,937,929 votes (48.91 percent) „ a difference of 76,118 votes, or just less than 1 percent. That statewide difference was only twice as much as the number of votes cast in Highlands County this election by mail, early votes and on Election Day. Meanwhile, the Highlands County Supervisor of Elections Of“ce reported a 67.7 percent turnout „ 40,128 ballots cast out of 59,272 active registered voters. Of those, 11,695 had come in by mail, 12,640 by early voting and 15,793 on Election Day. Highlands County Supervisor of Elections Penny Ogg did not know if that turnout was the biggest midterm turnout the county had seen, but was impressed. For midterms, thats a big one. We had 76 percent turnout for a presidential so 67.7 percent is big,Ž Ogg said. Its an exciting day.Ž Of Highlands County voters, 39,762 voted in the governors race. Of those, 26,262, or 66.05 percent, voted for DeSantis and 12,761 or 32.09 percent, voted for Gillum. In other state races: Florida Attorney General candidate Ashley Moody, Republican, carried 4,168,940 votes statewide, or 52.41 percent, over Democrat Sean Shaw, who got 3,643,815, or 45.81 percent. Jeffrey Marc Siskind, a non-party candidate, took 141,773 votes, or 1.78 percent. Locally, she won the race by a large margin: A 2-1 ratio of 27,204 votes (68.92 percent) to 11,568 votes (29.31 percent). Again, Siskind took 1.77 percent, this time with 699 votes. Jimmy Patronis took the contest for Florida Chief Financial Of“cer over Jeremy Ring. Patronis had 4,089,274 votes, or 52.03 percent, while Ring had 3,769,786 votes, or 47.97 percent. In Highlands County, Patronis showed an easy win, a greater than 2-1 ratio of 26,511 votes (67.8 percent) over Rings 12,544 votes (32.08 percent). Another 49 votes „ 0.13 percent „ went locally to write-in candidates. Florida Commissioner of Agriculture candidate Matt Caldwell, Republican, carried 3,965,363 votes, or 50.25 percent, over Democratic candidate Nicole NikkiŽ Fried, who received 3,926,060, or 49.75 percent. Its a difference of 49,475 „ 0.6 percent. Locally, Caldwell won the race cleanly, in another 2-1 margin: 25,987 votes (66.04 percent) to 13,364 votes (33.96 percent). In Highlands County, the majority of voters chose Republicans for every other state and federal of“ce, voted to retain all judges and voted in favor of every balloted Florida Constitutional amendment.

The Sun | Wednesday, November 7, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 9 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Yesterdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: Is there any evidence that taking turmeric prevents cancer? I have a friend who is convinced that it does. „ M.S. ANSWER: There are hundreds of cancers, some of which we can treat and a few of which we can prevent. Turmeric cannot, unfortunately, prevent all cancers. There are reasons to think that turmeric may have benets. Some studies have suggested benet in certain types of cancers, including leukemias and colon and prostate cancers, but I have to emphasize that turmeric (or its active substance, curcumin) is not, by itself, a completely eective preventive or treatment for cancer. Even people taking large amounts of turmeric and with an outstanding diet can get cancer. A recent study suggested that people who use alternative treatments for cancer had worse outcomes than people who did not. This prompts a reminder that potential therapies like curcumin should be recommended only as part of comprehensive cancer care and only after discussion with a cancer specialist. DEAR DR. ROACH: I am 75 years old and had a case of vertigo along with an ear infection. An evaluation included an MRI and bloodwork, and a week later, the earache was gone. I was told that the vertigo was due to the earache. The following week, I had a dentist appointment and needed a lling. I was feeling ne when I entered the dentist's chair. The assistant reclined the chair, and the lling went well. When I was lifted back up, I was so dizzy that I felt like I had gotten o of a roller coaster. I had dry heaves. The next day I went to my druggist, and he suggested Bonine for motion sickness, but all it did was make me sleepy. Did the position of the dental chair cause the vertigo to come back? I'm afraid to go back to the dentist. What can I do? „ D. ANSWER: The most likely diagnosis is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. While I can't be sure of this, the onset of severe symptoms with change in position is suggestive, and the fact that it came and went at least twice over a week or so is also consistent. Finally, an MRI scan (which is often not needed) rules out some of the more worrisome causes of vertigo. BPPV is a common, probably the most common, cause of vertigo. Your description of feeling like you have gotten o a roller coaster is a powerfully evocative description of vertigo, which many people describe as a feeling they are moving when they are not (some people say it's the world that's moving). Although BPPV will get better on its own, a physical maneuver can be performed by an experienced clinician that repositions the crystals inside the organ of balance, which help the brain determine which way is up. This sometimes can cure the symptoms immediately. Vestibular rehabilitation is eective for people with a more prolonged course. If your symptoms don't get better, it's time to re-evaluate. DR. ROACH WRITES: A recent column about back pain in a 69-year-old woman exercising two or more hours a day led me to conclude she may have been overdoing it. One reader wrote in that changing some of her exercise to yoga was successful in resolving these painful "knots" in her back. As always, I am happy to hear from readers and share their wisdom, especially when it's something I should have thought of but didn't.DEAR ABBY: My stepson "Arnold" recently moved out, and I found a notebook he left behind that I thought I'd use. Inside was a journal entry he had made last year about someone he loved. The problem is, it's directed to another man. I want to believe that's not true, but the writing and everything else checks out. I wish I had never seen it. We're a Christian family and have conservative views. Arnold never dated much, but we thought it was because he was so focused on his education. None of us would have ever expected this. There were no signs whatsoever. I feel such a burden right now. I know why he wouldn't tell his parents. His dad would be devastated. I never keep anything from my husband, and I feel terrible not being able to share this. But I don't want to reveal what I saw if my stepson isn't ready. What should I do? Should I ask Arnold about it? How can I take this burden o my shoulders? „ Stressed In The West DEAR STRESSED: I am a rm believer in communication. Return the notebook to Arnold, and when you do, use it as an opportunity to open a conversation with him about it. I do not think you should unburden yourself to your husband. The person to "out" Arnold should be Arnold. DEAR ABBY: At what age is it inappropriate for an uncle to cuddle his niece? She's in fth grade. I don't do anything except put my arm around her while sitting on the couch. She still likes it, but when should I stop this activity with her? „ Wondering In The South DEAR WONDERING: I don't regard an uncle putting his arm around his niece to show aection as "cuddling." However, the age when the displays of aection should be curtailed is when the girl is physically mature enough that it makes either her or her uncle uncomfortable. Dear Heloise: When a recipe calls for CUTTING DRIED FRUIT, it's easier and faster to use a pair of scissors that are lightly coated with cooking spray. Just snip the fruit into small pieces with the scissors. „ Holly Y., Red Oak, Iowa Dear Heloise: This information is in regard to wonderful silicone covers that you can put on pots and bowls. They make a wonderful vacuum seal on both, but be careful taking them o pans or pots when they're hot because of steam. The rst time I used one on my frying pan and lifted it with my ngers, I got burned. Use a spatula or tongs to lift the cover. „ Annie in Ohio Dear Readers: It was a happy accident that tea bags were invented. Originally, samples of tea were sent in tea bags until someone got the brilliant idea to brew a cup of tea with the tea bag samples. „ HeloiseTurmeric is not helpful at ghting, preventing cancers J ournal left behind reveals stepson's love for a man Give dried fruit a few snipsHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby

Page 10 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Wednesday, November 7, 2018 ARIES (March 21-April 19). You wont regret taking the high road. To extend dignity and peace to another is to extend it to yourself. Doing the right thing is its own reward, but this time it will come with a bonus. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Its not like you consciously pick and choose which youŽ to be. The right version of you just emerges unbidden to handle the situation. Too much interference by your conscious mind can only slow you down. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Just because you lower your pride doesnt mean youre signaling defeat. This may be an act of deference, respect or strategy. Humility takes strength. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Gather experience. Repetition of the same task is experience, too, but its not going to grow you like facing the unknown. Youll learn more about yourself in the face of fresh experience than you would through introspection. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Beware of people who act like theyve got it all gured out. Perhaps they really have sorted through a small section of life, and you can learn from them in that regard. But thats not true for every regard. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will express yourself in an open, condent manner and with great warmth and heart. Loved ones will feel lucky to be on the receiving end of your generosity. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Brilliance! Forcefulness! Courage in action! After you give yourself a moment to soak in your victory, rest. Thats the step not to skip. If you keep going full tilt without a rest, youll risk a setback. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The quality of attention you give will make you a favorite among your people. Not only do you acknowledge others when they speak, you also extend an appreciation for the personal risk-taking that may be involved. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Take full advantage of this world before rushing to explore the next one. Youll get there soon enough. And when you do, youll probably look back and count today as being among the gold ole days.Ž CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Can you arrange your schedule so that you can catch the sunset? The magical time just before the sky falls asleep will bring a benet to your psyche and may even make your dreams sweeter. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Something changes to set the usual dynamics of a close relationship a little o-kilter. This is a move toward improvement though it may not seem like it right away. Youll avoid stagnation. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A handwritten letter was once the prevailing method of communicating on matters of news, love, gratitude and intention. Now its a rarity, which is why, if you write someone a note, it will be a cherished memento. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (Nov. 7). Youll push for a change that could transform your whole scene, and it will. Go forward with your plan regardless of popular opinion. (There are some people you shouldnt even give the chance to weigh in.) Also in 2019: high expectations met, love, loyalty and professional advancement. Pisces and Aries adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 44, 20, 4 and 11.

School Board members and referendum supporters held town halls across the community to answer any questions the public had about the referendum, and clear up any confusion. At one meeting in late October, Superintendent Steve Dionisio and chairman Ian Vincent pulled up chairs to sit with members of the public and discuss the referendum. With all precincts reporting, 47,029 of the votes, or 56 percent, were in favor of the referendum, with 36,627 against. Vincent said he was almost at a loss for words seeing the results come in. As the remaining precincts came in, Vincent said he wanted to give a great big thank you to the community. They had said loud and clear education is important in Charlotte County.Ž Superintendent Steve Dionisio said the School Board has a lot of work ahead to get ready to implement all of the initiatives the additional dollars will bring to the district. This has been a long journey, but it ended successfully with the community showing Charlotte County Public Schools that t hey support us,Ž Dionisio wrote in a statement.SCHOOLFROM PAGE 1 FROM PAGE ONEnot uncommon for the mix of suits, MAGA hats and biker attire typically seen at DeSantis events. We knew coming into this race that it was going to be neck-and-neck but the Panhandle is going to throw down.Ž At around 8:30 p.m. in Tallahassee, the crowd at Gillums party, which had swelled to hundreds, nervously watched as MSNBC continued to say both races were still too close to call. They cheered as Democrats in other states were declared winners or seemed to have leads „ Gov. Gina Raimondo in Rhode Island who easily won, or Rep. Beto ORourke, running against Texas senator Ted Cruz. But when the screens showed early results from the Florida races, the crowd seemed to hold their breath. A brief chant of bring it homeŽ broke out after staffer Millie Raphael tried to ease the crowd. Its really close,Ž she said. We continue to believe in him, in us, in the power of people. Meanwhile in Orlando by 9 p.m. the sitting crowd was on its feet, in front of the stage and the mega Fox News screens, booing any mention on Fox News of Democrats winning races across the country, and cheering for any Republican amids chants of Ron, Ron, Ron!Ž For Florida Democrats, the contest was a proxy for the debate that has been raging for years among Democrats: Are they better off “elding centrists to appeal to swing voters or liberals who actually excite the base of the party. Florida Democrats for decades gravitated toward cautious, pro-business centrists from the swing voter mecca of Tampa Bay. And they kept losing. With Gillum, they not only picked the “rst ever African-American nominee for governor but also an unapologetic member of the partys liberal wing. Unlike Nelson, he advocated Medicare for All, legalization of marijuana, and a $15 minimum wage. That debate is certain to continue with Gillums loss. Many Republicans believe moderate former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham would have been a stronger nominee, more likely to win over swing voters and Republicans disaffected with Trump. Gillum seemed to have what it takes: skill, luck and timing. He also possesses a charisma, likability and natural political skill that Florida hasnt seen since Sen. Marco Rubio rose to prominence. Gillum won the primary with just 34 percent of the Democratic vote and immediately became a national political sensation. Race became an issue immediately. On day one of the general election, DeSantis on Fox News warned that Florida voters that Gillum would monkey this upŽ in Florida. Fox issued a formal rebuke for what was widely viewed as a racial comment but DeSantis said was merely a poor choice of words. DeSantis, meanwhile, lacked much of a message beyond attacking Gillum and often looked uncomfortable or unenthusiastic on the campaign trail. He overwhelmingly beat Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam in the primary mainly thanks to an endorsement by Trump and by appearing constantly on Fox News in Washington to cheer the president and denounce the Russia investigation. He has an impressive background „ growing up in a working class Dunedin family, and then going to Yale, Harvard Law, and the U.S. Navy „ but many Republicans worried he was a weak general election candidate. DeSantis followed closely the Trump playbook of warning voters they should fear Gillum. The Tallahassee Mayor Gillum was a corrupt, weak-on-crime radical who would kill Floridas economy. Hes accused me of everything but being a child of God,Ž Gillum quipped in a recent interview. The Tallahassee mayor faced the cloud of an ongoing FBI corruption investigation into Tallahassee City Hall, including revelation s that the mayor had accepted free gifts from an undercover agent posing as a developer. DeSantis repeatedly talked about that investigation, as well as the crime rate in Tallahassee and Gillums call to abolish ICE in its current form. Gillum proposed raising corporate taxes to better fund education, and DeSantis warned that was likely just the start of the taxes Gillum would try to raise. Shell-shocked Florida Democrats will now face the same painful process they have gone through in every midterm ele ction for 20 years: Pondering what went wrong and what, if anything, they can do to “nally win. Since the virtually tied presidential election of 2000, Democrats have won two and lost two presidential races in Florida, but lower turnout midterm elections have been too steep a hill „ often just barely. Alex Sink in 2010, Charlie Crist in 2014, and now Gillum in 2018 lost the all-important governors race by about 1 percentage point.DESANTISFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTO A Republican Senate candidate Rick Scott supporter crosses her ngers at an election watch party, Tuesday, in Naples.

It was a celebration that proved a bit premature.See page 4.INDEX | Golf 2 | Lottery 2 | Local Sports 3 | NFL 4 | Scoreboard 5 | NHL 6 | Weather 6 By JOHN MARSHALLAP BASKETBALL WRITERThe 2017-18 college basketball season had everything a fan could want. Standout performances, a No. 1 seed “nally falling in the “rst round of the NCAA Tournament and Villanova cutting down the nets for the second time in three seasons. Oh, and Sister Jean and Chicago-Loyola giving hope to underdogs everywhere by reaching the Final Four. A new season starts Tuesday, and its been a long seven months to wait for a sport that seems to top itself every year. To get you ready, weve got a guide on the top teams, players and other tidbits to look for in 2018-19:TOP TEAMSKansas. Bill Self has another strong recruiting class, a preseason AllAmerican in Memphis transfer Dedric Lawson and a No. 1 ranking. Kentucky. Coach Cal has another roster full of future pros. Hes also got Reid Travis, a grad transfer from Stanford who happens to be one of the nations top players. Gonzaga. The Zags broke through to the Final Four two years ago. They could be even better this year. Duke. Coach K outdid himself with this years recruiting class with what could be three of the top “ve picks in the NBA draft. Virginia. OK, so that “rst-round NCAA Tournament loss to UMBC was ugly and history-making. But the Cavaliers have nearly everyone back and plenty of motivation. Tennessee. The Vols have never been to the Final Four. That could change this season „ theyre that good.TOP PLAYERSCarsen Edwards, Purdue. He was super productive as a sophomore last season. Expect even more from him now that the Boilermakers need him even more. Luke Maye, North Carolina. The player who hit the shot to send the Tar Heels to the Final Four in 2017 averaged a double-double last season and will be counted on even more this year. R.J. Barrett, Duke. The athletic freshman has yet to play a game but has already created a buzz and could be the No. 1 overall pick in next years NBA draft. Dedric Lawson, Kansas. The former Memphis forward gives the Jayhawks plenty of talent and experience on an otherwise young roster. Ethan Happ, Wisconsin. The Badgers sure are glad this multitalented big man decided to withdraw from the NBA draft. Opponents will not be. Caleb Martin, Nevada. The do-everything forwards decision to return with twin brother Cody is a big reason the Wolf Pack are being mentioned as a Final Four team.MID-MAJOR MONSTERSNevada. The Muss bus is loaded with talent and is driving toward what could be the best season in program history. Loyola-Chicago. No way the Ramblers and Sister Jean will be overlooked again. Western Kentucky. Top recruit Charles Bassey will push the Hilltoppers up the big hill. Buffalo. Bulls have “ve of their top six scorers back from a team that knocked off Arizona in the opening round of the NCAAs. Marshall. The Thundering Herd and coach Dan DAntoni are looking for an even deeper March run after knocking off Wichita State in the opening round of the NCAAs.FRESHMEN PHENOMSZion Williamson, Duke.

This is the earliest that the Southeastern Conference Championship Game has been set.But now what?The rest of the conference is left to eat the scraps that fall from the plates of the leagues top dogs. A chance at a New Years Six bowl remains (if Alabama and Georgia both make the College Football Playoff), but even that feels like a consolation prize. No national title. No conference title. Take your pick of the following quotes and see what the great Vince Lombardi thought about not coming out on top. Show me a good loser, and Ill show you a loser.Ž Second place is meaningless.Ž And, of course: Winning isnt everything; its the only thing.Ž So if you arent Alabama or SEC FOOTBALL FOCUS: The SEC Championship Game is set. Now what?By David MurphyTHE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER (TNS)Its worth repeating: The biggest impediment standing in the way of taking another step forward this offseason is that they have very little idea of where they are standing to begin with. Thats not a knock on the navigational abilities of Matt Klentak or the front of“ce that surrounds him. Its just the unfortunate reality of the Phillies current situation. There is very little that the Phillies can do this offseason to become a legitimate World Series contender if they do not also see a signi“cant appreciation in the pieces that they have spent the last three-plus years putting into place. Where once there was a variety of methods for cobbling together a pennant-winning roster, there is now a formula that seems to get more universal with each offseason. You develop a foundation of three or four young hitters with base-reaching ability and 20-home-run power, you prioritize value while building a deep inventory of starters, and then you spend whatever money you have on whatever the top of the free-agent market has available. All three parts of that formula are important to keep in mind as Klentak and his fellow general managers gather in California for their annual meetings starting Tuesday. For most of the last year, the narrative surrounding the Phillies has centered almost exclusively on their desire to make a big splash in this years free-agent market, which of“cially opened for business this weekend. At times, the public perception seemed to hold that the last couple of seasons were nothing more than a biding of time until John Middleton could ride in on his credit line and conjure the ghosts of 2008 with a stroke or two of the pen. But waiting for Manny Machado and Bryce Harper to reach free agency was never going to be the hard part of the process. After all, that was inevitable, much more so than persuading them to actually sign here in Philly. The disconcerting thing about the Phillies current position is that the heaviest lifting was supposed to be done by now. This offseason was never supposed to be make-or-break. Four years ago, when the former regime “nally acknowledged that the organization was on the precipice of a lengthy rebuilding project, there were a number of different road maps one could envision for the return trip to contention. The one commonality they shared was 2019 as a destination: if not a culmination of the previous years work, then certainly one of the “nal rest stops before David Murphy: With or without Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, Phillies need creativity to become a contender MLB | 3By JACOB HOAGSTAFF WRITERA thunderous crowd roared throughout the Barron Collier gymnasium Tuesday night. Filling every seat, an even mix of Pirate and Cougar faithful pounded the wooden bleachers beneath their feet, making it hard to speak with those sitting around you.

Whaley was just getting hooked on golf in Syracuse, New York, and she was good enough to compete in tournaments when her name was scratched off the entry list of a junior tournament for boys because she was a girl. And now Ive played in a PGA Tour event,Ž said Whaley, who at the 2003 Greater Hartford Open became the “rst woman in 58 years to qualify for a PGA Tour event. Look how far weve gone. Its not where we need to be, but were making progress. And that makes me smile.Ž Around the time Whaley had her “rst whiff of discrimination as a young girl, Barrie Naismith Jeffcoat was working at a golf club in Atlanta as a 29-yearold woman who was giving lessons and going nowhere. She hired young men to handle the carts and pick up golf balls from the range. Some of them went on to become PGA professionals and got jobs at other clubs. She couldnt join the PGA as a certi“ed pro because she was a woman. Something was wrong with this picture,Ž Naismith Jeffcoat said in a telephone interview Monday from her home in Virginia. At the time I was giving lessons to Superior Court Judge (Joel) Fryer. He gave me the name of his attorney. The attorney advised me to call the PGA. I got a lawyer on the phone with the PGA and he told me, You can call Jimmy Carter, but it wont do you any good.Ž Instead of calling the president, she “led a lawsuit against the PGA in 1978. By the end of the year, the PGA signed the Naismith Consent Degree, giving women equal rights to become PGA professionals. Naismith became the “rst female member on Feb. 1, 1979. She stayed with the PGA a few more years, yet the impact will be felt strongest this week at the PGA of Americas annual meeting in California. Whaley is set to become the “rst female president in its 102-year history. Im so thrilled shell have a high pro“le,Ž said Naismith Jeffcoat, who has never met Whaley. There will be a lot of young women that will take up the game and want to be involved. Its very exciting to me to see it come to fruition.Ž Whaley is a consensus-builder, perhaps her greatest asset. She is foremost a golf professional, still giving private lessons at Suzy Whaley Golf, the course she owns in Cromwell, Connecticut, and serving as PGA director of instruction at the Country Club of Mirasol in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, during the winter months. Her husband, Bill, was her “rst golf coach. Both her daughters played in college. My strength would be that I love the game of golf. I want to get clubs in peoples hands,Ž said Whaley, recently certi“ed as a master professional. My vision for the membership is to help enhance their careers. How can we get them resources and tools to go where they want to go?Ž She also recognizes the historic occasion of the annual meeting Friday, and she doesnt take it lightly. Its de“nitely historic, and Im honored and completely grateful the membership has that faith and trust,Ž she said. I look at myself as a PGA professional “rst. Obviously, Im a woman. I understand the moniker. There are women who have paved the way before me.Ž One was Renee Powell, who last year was inducted into the PGA of America Hall of Fame. Another was Sue Fiscoe, who ran unsuccessfully for national of“ce at the PGA in 2012, which motivated Whaley to run herself two years later. Whaley rose to national prominence when she won the Connecticut PGA section in 2002, earning a spot in the Greater Hartford Open. Thats what inspired Annika Sorenstam to say she would accept an invitation to a PGA Tour event, which she received within weeks at the Colonial. Sorenstam played two months before Whaley. Her name recognition might have received a boost when weeks before Whaleys election as secretary in 2014, Ted Bishop was ousted as PGA president for calling Ian Poulter a Lil girlŽ during a social media rant. But while Naismith Jeffcoat caused consternation in some circles „ after she joined the PGA of America, two men threatened to sue to join the LPGA „ Whaley received 53 percent of the votes from PGA delegates, only three of whom were women, and won election by 19 percentage points. After two years as secretary and two years as vice president, its time for the 51-yearold Whaley to lead the 29,000 men and women at the PGA of America. She didnt want to be president because shes a woman. She still understands the moment in front of her. I wanted to have a seat at the table, a voice in the room,Ž she said. I didnt look at it as male or female. I felt I had something to contribute. That doesnt mean its not dif“cult. Its an enormous opportunity for equality, and to showcase to women what they can do. Golf is an $84 billion industry we want to contribute to.ŽA golf pro first, Suzy Whaley now breaking barriers AP PHOTO Golf pro Suzy Whaley stands on the driving range as she gives a lesson at Blue Fox Run in Avon, Conn. Fifteen years after becoming the rst woman to qualify for a PGA event in 58 years, Whaley is expected to be elected on Friday as the rst female president of the PGA of America.

A year ago at this time, the assumption was that the Phillies had the makings of that base layer of success. In Rhys Hoskins and Odubel Herrera, they had two top-half-of-the-order hitters who were in the early stages of well-below-market contracts. In Aaron Nola, they had a cost-controlled, top-half-of-the-rotation starter. In Scott Kingery, J.P. Crawford, Mickey Moniak, and Adam Haseley, they had a pool of promising talent from which another hitter or two could emerge. None of those players is yet a sunk cost. Kingery and Crawford wouldnt be the “rst Top 50 prospects to bounce back from awful rookie seasons. Moniak wouldnt be the “rst top overall pick out of high school to take a few minor-league seasons to “nd his game. Haseley “nished the year with a strong performance at double A and could be in the majors soon. Yet when you look at the teams that have made it to the World Series over the past few seasons, you see lineups that were well ahead of where the Phillies is at junctures similar to where the Phillies are now. Five of the last six participants in the World Series had at least three young hitters who were more or less home-grown who each logged an OPS of .800+. The one exception, the Cubs, featured two such hitters who had MVP-caliber seasons (Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo) surrounded by several other young, cost-controlled bats. The Astros had George Springer, Alex Bregman, Carlos Correa, and Jose Altuve. The Dodgers have featured Corey Seager, Cody Bellinger, Yasiel Puig, and Joc Pederson. Same goes for the Indians (Jose Ramirez, Francisco Lindor, Jason Kipnis), and this years Red Sox (Mookie Betts, Xander Boegarts, Andrew Benintendi). At the moment, Hoskins is the only Phillies hitter who has a full .800 OPS season to his credit. Add a hitter such as Harper or Machado to the mix and you could see how the current mix could work. If Carlos Santana is counted on to be only a “veor six-hole hitter behind Hoskins and an MVP-caliber newcomer. If Odubel Herrera is free to swing away out of the sixor seven-hole. And so on. But the Phillies also might be at a point where they need to start taking some chances in the trade market. One area where they have been rather quiet is in procuring cost-controlled talent from somewhere other than the amateur markets. This is particularly true in the pitching market, where in recent years, the Indians acquired Trevor Bauer, the Red Sox acquired Rick Porcello, the Dodgers traded for Alex Wood, and the Cubs landed Jake Arrieta. Up to this point, patience has been a viable strategy, but the time for making tough decisions has arrived. Offering Machado or Harper the biggest contract in big-league history is not a tough decision. Parlaying the promise of the Phillies current assets into legitimate “rst-division big-league talent could be the venue where the future is won or lost.MLBFROM PAGE 1Georgia, what is there left to play for? Here are a few things.Benny Snell Jr.Georgia downed Kentucky 34-17 on Saturday in the unof“cial SEC Championship playin game, putting an end to the Wildcats Cinderella run. By any measure, Kentuckys season has been a success after being picked to “nish “fth in the SEC East. But no title, no glory. At least one Wildcat certainly wont relent, though: Benny Snell Jr. The junior running back has set out to prove doubters wrong from the seasons outset, and he did just that out of the gates. But in the “ve games since rushing for 165 yards and four touchdowns against Mississippi State, Snell has rushed for 100 yards just once. And in that span, hes found the end zone just three times. You want to prove youre one of the best backs not only in the conference but in all of college football? Put the last few games in the past and run wild through Kentuckys weak remaining schedule.FloridaA year ago, in the wake of Jim McElwains “ring, Florida folded to close the season. The Gators beat UAB but were dominated by Missouri and dropped games to South Carolina and Florida State. Dan Mullen was brought in during the offseason, and Florida has looked like a different team in 2018. But the Gators have been hit by adversity once again „ albeit less adversity than program members receiving death threats „ by losing back-to-back games to Georgia and Missouri. The rest of the season is an opportunity to show things are different under Mullen, that the team wont fold under pressure.LSUThe Tigers havent “nished “rst in the SEC West since 2011, the same year they lost to Alabama in the BCS National Championship Game. Since that year, however, LSU has fallen from SEC and national title contention. A win over Alabama would have vaulted the Tigers back to the conference championship game. Instead, the Crimson Tide entered Tiger Stadium and manhandled Ed Orgeron and Co. Like Florida, LSU can show growth by rediscovering its stride in the “nal three games of the year. Finish the regular season 10-2, win a bowl game, carry the momentum into 2019 and give Alabama a run for its money ƒ by somehow unearthing Tua Tagovailoas kryptonite or convincing Nick Saban to not “eld a defense.AuburnTwo words: Iron Bowl. Drew Lock Missouris quarterback returned to form in the Tigers 38-17 win over Florida on Saturday, throwing for 250 yards and three touchdowns. Now, Drew Lock needs to keep it rolling. A midseason lull left some, including draft analysts, to question whether Lock will be a “rst-round pick come April. Three games against SEC bottom-dwellers remain on Missouris schedule. If Lock can perform as he did against the Gators and lead the Tigers to an 8-4 regular-season “nish to close out his college career, scouts and analysts might switch their tune again.Trending upMissouri As mentioned, the Tigers bounced back from a crushing loss to Kentucky with their “rst win over a ranked opponent since 2014. It was Barry Odom and Locks “rst win over a ranked team. Missouri closes out its schedule with three games against teams with losing records. As an added bonus for Tigers fans, Kansas announced that it will not retain David Beaty at the end of the season.Trending downTexas A&M The Aggies have dropped two straight games, the latest a 28-24 defeat at the hands of Auburn. To make things worse, A&M surrendered 14 points to the Tigers in the “nal six minutes of the game while unable to put any points on the board for itself in the fourth quarter. The Aggies have the opportunity to rebound the next two weeks with games against Mississippi and UAB.

Playing for a regional championship against Palm Harbor University, the Indians cheers were a little bit louder and their high-“ves a little bit stronger as they knew what was at stake. Fighting through the emotions, Venice fought back Palm Harbor in three straight sets (25-17, 25-20, 25-17) to win its 12th regional championship. There was de“nitely a crazy vibe tonight,Ž senior middle hitter Aja Jones said. We all wanted this so bad and we were willing to do whatever we needed to do to get it. We were all super excited and there was great energy out on the court.Ž The win means that Venices season stays alive, as the Indians will travel to play the winner of St. Thomas Aquinas and Mater Academy Charter for the state semi“nals on Saturday afternoon. Though Venice swept Palm Harbor, it wasnt easy for the Indians. The Hurricanes kept it close with the Indians throughout the “rst set, tying the set at 10-10 at one point. However, Jones provided a spark for Venice. The senior unleashed devastating kills on the Hurricanes, knocking over multiple players on the night with the power of her shot. Aja turned out big tonight,Ž Venice coach Brian Wheatley said. Weve been working on her blocking and she had, I think, eight or nine blocks tonight, which is a season-high from her. They didnt really have an answer for any of our hitters.Ž Along with Jones, outside hitter Paradise Gibson overwhelmed Palm Harbor to take the “rst set. By the end of the night, both Jones and Gibson “nished with a team-high 14 kills. Venice got out to a quick 11-3 lead in the second set and looked well on its way to an early night, but then each side got a little sloppy. Shots into the net, out of bounds, missed digs and penalties hurt both teams in the second set, but once again Jones rallied her team with two kills and a block over the “nal four points of the set. Leading 2-0, everyone got involved for Venice in the “nal set. Kills from Gibson, Jones, Sadie Kluner and Carley Faulkner kept the Hurricanes at bay just long enough for the Indians to pull away. You know, we had our best defensive and blocking night, probably of the year,Ž Wheatley said. Weve really been concentrating hard on that the last couple of weeks and it de“nitely showed tonight. Theyre a strong defensive team over there, and you gotta hand it to them because they kept on them, but it was good to see us “nish there.ŽIndians quell Hurricanes to win regional finals SUN PHOTOS BY JUSTIN FENNELLVenice players celebrate on their sideline as the Indians extend their lead. Senior middle hitter Aja Jones delivers one of her 14 kills in Tuesday nights regional “nals match. Venice senior Paige Canevari blocks Palm Harbors Jessa Mielke at the net. AREA PREPS: Charlotte Tarpons Port Charlotte. When the Lady Cougars needed a block, they got it. When they had to get a bounce to go their way, they did. Even when a ball seemed untouchable, they seemed to always find a way to keep it in play. It was (frustrating),Ž Krause said. They played great. I just think we were a little off today. I give a lot of credit to them, they played great.Ž The first set introduced the theme of the night with a long, nail-biting back-and-forth. After the Lady Pirates jumped to a 7-3 lead, the largest lead stretched to just three as the Lady Pirates battled their way to a 25-20 win thanks to three kills by sophomore Azvah Dailey and two aces by sophomore Laticia Nina to end on a 7-0 run. Dailey led the team with 16 kills. In the second set, Barron Collier held more control, but it still came down to the wire. Holding an 18-17 lead, the Lady Cougars were able to secure 6 of the final 10 points to win 21-25 and swing the momentum back in their favor. Barron Collier rode that momentum and won the third set handily 25-16. But the Lady Pirates heads didnt drop. The largest lead of the fourth set was three and it came on the matchs final point. Facing a 24-20 deficit with the season on the line, Port Charlotte gave one last push, scoring two points before the Lady Cougars killed the ball for the matchsealing point.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Wednesday, November 7, 2018By DENNIS WASZAK Jr.AP PRO FOOTBALL WRITERNEW YORK „ Start them right away? Ease em in? Have them sit a whole season? When it comes to developing young quarterbacks in the NFL, it all depends on who you talk to. Some teams think its best to throw rookie QBs into the “re to learn on the job. Others prefer to gradually work them into the offense. Some say its more bene“cial to have them grab a cap and clipboard and take it all in from the sideline. I think every position is the same,Ž Jets offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates said. If someone cant handle it mentally, then you dont want to put them on the “eld, because naturally theyll play slower and be thinking instead of reacting.Ž Sam Darnold clearly passed that test for New York, and the No. 3 overall pick in April was under center to start the season. If a player shows the athletic ability, the talent and has the mental capacity to handle a gameplan and go into a game and be successful,Ž Bates said, then hes ready to play.Ž That doesnt mean things have necessarily gone smoothly for the former USC star. Darnolds 14 interceptions lead the league and have contributed to the Jets 3-6 start. So have his 55.0 percent completion rate and 68.3 quarterback rating, which also rank among the worst in the league. Still, some point to these early struggles as crucial building blocks for the future. Im going to continue to learn,Ž Darnold said Sunday after a 13-6 loss at Miami in which he threw four INTs. Theres always lessons to be learned.Ž Of the 32 quarterbacks currently listed as starters for their teams, 12 were under center in Week 1 of their “rst season. On the ”ipside, some veteran superstar QBs waited a while before they got their chances. Aaron Rodgers was stuck behind Brett Favre in Green Bay before “nally starting in his fourth season. Philip Rivers didnt start with the Chargers until his third year, when Drew Brees went to New Orleans. Even Brees didnt get his “rst NFL start until his second season. Tom Brady, Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Alex Smith werent Day 1 starters, either. In an ideal world, it gets to be like Drew, who had a chance to watch a little, or Tom Brady and Aaron,Ž said former quarterback Rich Gannon, the 2002 NFL MVP and now an analyst for CBS Sports and SiriusXM NFL Radio. Patrick Mahomes sat behind Smith in Kansas City until Week 17 as a rookie last year, and now is a leading MVP candidate as one of the NFLs top gunslinger s with a league-leading 29 TD passes for the 8-1 Chiefs. We knew that Patrick was very talented, but any time that an NFL team goes with a young quarterback, usually its a very challenging endeavor,Ž Chiefs owner Clark Hunt said. Sometimes it takes time, several years, but as weve seen, Andy (Reid) had Patrick ready to go Week 1.Ž Gannon thinks the Chiefs provide the perfect blueprint. Mahomes had a chance to watch a master of his domain for a year,Ž he said. Alex Smith knew that system inside and out, has great huddle command and leadership skills. Maybe he doesnt throw it like Mahomes does, but this is a guy who was willing to share and help him for that year, and were seeing the fruits of it now. Thats the best situation you can have.Ž Again, that depends on who you ask. In the past three drafts, 11 quarterbacks were taken in the “rst round „ including Darnold, Clevelands Baker May“eld, Buffalos Josh Allen, Arizonas Josh Rosen and Baltimores Lamar Jackson this year. Jackson is the only one to not yet start at least one game. Baltimore has Joe Flacco leading the huddle, but Jackson has still been used in the offense and is the Ravens second-leading rusher. The Browns wanted to have May“eld, the No. 1 overall pick this year, sit and learn behind Tyrod Taylor. But like most plans in Cleveland, it back“red. Taylor got hurt in Week 3 and May“eld was thrust into the lineup, helping the Browns rally to beat the Jets in a nationally televised game and end a 19-game winless streak. May“eld has shown poise and promise, but lacks playmakers and is dealing with a coaching change after Hue Jackson was “red. In Buffalo, the Bills werent anticipating Allen starting in the second week. They were taking what coach Sean McDermott called a calculatedŽ approach. But after AJ McCarron was traded before the season opener and Nathan Peterman bombed in Week 1, McDermott was left with no choice but to turn to Allen. The rookie has been dealing with a sprained right elbow and is uncertain to play Sunday against the Jets. When you draft a quarterback like we did, theres a part of it where you have to say, Hey, hes going to play either A, B, or C „ early, middle, or late or next year.Ž McDermott said. You have to be OK with all of that.Ž The initial plan in Arizona was to have Rosen learn behind Sam Bradford. All that changed when the veteran was ineffective and benched in favor of the No. 10 overall pick. Rosen took his lumps with some turnover-“lled performances. Then, Mike McCoy was “red as the Cardinals offensive coordinator and Bradford was later cut „ leaving the job to Rosen. His demeanor allows him to have success,Ž new offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich said. Quarterbacking in this league is hard and when things go bad, this kid tends to be “ne.Ž But, some say too many adverse situations could end up having long-term deleterious effects on a young player. When you put them in before theyre ready, they also get hurt: Josh Allen, Josh Rosen,Ž Gannon said. The speed of the game is way too fast for them. ... Or they have a bad experience, like what wound up happening with (the Jets) Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith, or going back to Ryan Leaf (with the Chargers). They play right away before they are physically or mentally ready or maturity-level ready. They get benched and booed and maybe run out of town, the coach gets “red, and then the next thing, theyre on their third or fourth team. They think he will be a savior and hes not ready to play. How is that being responsible from a coach and ownership standpoint? Its doing a tremendous disservice.Ž Tampa Bays Jameis Winston and Tennessee Marcus Mariota started right away after being the top two picks in 2015, but the jurys still out on both. For those who preach patience, 25 of the 32 current QBs started a game at some point in their rookie season. And, several held on to the job from there. Quarterbacks such as the Rams Jared Goff (No. 1 in 2016) and the Bears Mitchell Trubisky (No. 2 in 2017) started and struggled as rookies, but bene“ted from changes in coaching staffs and philosophies and took leaps in their second seasons. So, whos right? Well, all of the above. Theres certainly valuable experience when you stand and watch,Ž McDermott said. But we all know theres no substitute for the experience when youre actually behind the wheel. Theres a lot of value to that.Ž NFL: QuaterbacksBy TIM DAHLBERGAP SPORTS COLUMNISTMichael Thomas reached behind a goal post to pull out a ”ip phone in homage to a memorable touchdown celebration of the past. Benjamin Watson used his touchdown catch to let everyone know that he and his wife are expecting „ and its going to be twins. That was cause enough for celebration itself on a feel-good weekend for the NFL. So, too, was that bettors in Las Vegas and elsewhere “nally turned the tables and took the bookies for millions of dollars. They could have just as easily been popping champagne corks at NFL headquarters in New York. A season that began in turmoil has reached its midpoint and the league is riding a new high, with television ratings up and fans “lling stadiums to cheer their favorite teams. Suddenly, the NFL is fun once again. It showed Sunday in a shootout in New Orleans that was widely entertaining even without the touchdown props. Then, if any further evidence was needed, it was provided in prime time when Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers squared off in a showdown of quarterback greats. Brady and the New England Patriots won that one, and once again are treating another visit to the Super Bowl as their birthright. Out west, meanwhile, the Rams are trying to win fans again in Los Angeles with a team that could “nd its way to Atlanta, too. And a new group of exciting young quarterbacks are letting everyone know the future of the sport is in good hands. What could go wrong? Well, plenty, especially if President Trump takes an interest in the league once again. But these are good times for a league that has taken blow after blow the last few years only to emerge with its position of Americas favorite sport safely intact. Were the best,Ž Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said at last months owner meetings. And I know thats ironic since weve had some criticism, too. But I think thats healthy.Ž What is really healthy are offenses around the league, with scoring at record levels and 27 of 32 teams averaging more than 20 points a game. New rule changes designed to protect the quarterback and free up offenses have worked exactly as planned, despite some grumbling early by players upset they couldnt hit like they did in the past. Healthy indeed. Things are so good that even Roger Goodell couldnt mess it up. Actually, maybe he can. Not many were paying attention, but there were still a few protests during the anthem over the weekend and the issue is one presidential tweet away from blowing up once again. Meanwhile, Colin Kaepernick remains unemployed, something everyone in the league should be ashamed about. For now, though, the attention is on the game itself. And it can be argued that the game has never looked better. Theres no confusion anymore about when a catch is really a catch, and even Clay Matthews of the Packers seems to have “gured out how and when to safely take down the opposing quarterback. There are dominant teams on both coasts, and a few high scoring games that are reminiscent of the old American Football League. The concussion issue has subsided, though the disturbing fact remains players are still suffering from them „ at great risk to their long term health. Even fans of the hapless Cleveland Browns have something to be happy about with a couple of wins and a couple coaches “red. They also have a franchise quarterback in Baker May“eld and a potential upside thats the envy of better teams. It didnt happen exactly by design. A lot of the NFLs good fortune is due to good luck and an unwillingness of fans to let go of their favorite sport despite its many ”aws. There still is no real grand plan to end the protest debate, no long term solution to the fact football played at the highest level can shorten lives. The of“ciating continues to get in the way „ often at just the wrong time „ and theres a real chance games arent played when the current collective bargaining agreement expires and players “nally make a stand for guaranteed contracts. For now, though, those are distant threats. The league remains the most popular in the country by far, and the addition of legalized betting around the country will boost it even more just like fantasy football has done in recent years. What once looked like a season lost is now looking like a season to remember. NFLBy STEPHEN HAWKINSAP SPORTS WRITERARLINGTON, Texas „ The Dallas Cowboys defense might want to delete that last group photo. It was a celebration that proved a bit premature. On this Monday night, the Cowboys didnt defend their star in a 28-14 loss „ except for Byron Jones shoving Kevin Byard when the Tennessee Titans safety did his best imitation of Terrell Owens infamous taunting on the mid“eld logo 18 years ago. Theres no need for it,Ž Jones said. Were all having fun, but I think when you go and try to go on the star ... everyone knows what going on the star means.Ž Byrads interception in the end zone of Dak Prescotts pass came right after Jaylon Smith recovered the second fumble by Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota and the Cowboys (3-5) looking to build on their early 7-0 lead. That was a big play in the ballgame not to be able to cash in there,Ž coach Jason Garrett said. That was big in the game.Ž Just two plays later, it looked like Smith had another recovery after what would have been Tennessees third lost fumble in a “ve-minute span. The defense had already posed for another group photo, like it had after two fumbles by Mariota, before the play was overturned on a replay review. After keeping the ball, Mariota and the Titans (4-4) went on to “nish a 15-play drive that tied the game. They didnt have any more turnovers and never trailed again. One thing that defensively that we try to uphold is creating turnovers,Ž Jones said. You cant just do it in the “rst quarter and expect the game to go your way. You have to do it throughout the entire game.Ž NFL: CowboysBy RALPH D. RUSSOAP COLLEGE FOOTBALL WRITERThe Associated Press has been honoring college footballs best with an AllAmerica team since 1925. The full three-team AP All-America selections will be unveiled in December. The eighth All-America watch of the season features Arizona States top target; Alabamas dominant defensive tackle and Boise States quarterback, all on the verge of breaking records.SPOTLIGHTNKeal Harry, WR, Arizona State Harry came into the season as one of the most highly touted receivers in the country. He has not put eye-catching numbers as Arizona State has tried to lean heavily on its running game, but he has been steady and productive. No Pac-12 receiver has been a more effective target, according to Pro Football Focus Harry broke out with his best game of the season last week in a huge victory for the Sun Devils against Utah. The 6-foot-, 221-pound junior had nine catches for 161 yards and three touchdowns. For the season, he has 55 catches for 828 yards and nine TDs. What they are saying: We didnt throw it a lot, but we made it count. NKeals a fabulous player and he has two back-toback games now where without his presence, it hurts you,Ž Arizona State coach Herm Edwards said. Outlook: The Sun Devils are in the drivers seat in a cluttered Pac-12 South race. Some more big efforts from Harry could help get them to the conference title game.WHOS HOTQuinnen Williams, DT, Alabama Williams has been hot all season but he came up huge in Alabamas biggest game of the season so far against LSU. He had 10 tackles, seven solo stops and 2 sacks against the Tigers. The third-year sophomore entered the season without much fanfare after being a reserve for the Crimson Tide last year. The 6-foot4, 298-pounder is talked about as the possible “rst overall pick in next years NFL draft, surging past a slew of talented defensive line who will be available in April.WHOS NOTEd Oliver, DT, Houston Oliver “gures to be high “rst-round draft pick by the NFL in April, and the school was promoting him as a Heisman Trophy contender coming into this season. He was mostly living up to his hype, making the midseason All-America team, but he was injured against Navy three weeks ago and has not played the Cougars last two games. Last week he was expected to come back, but was a late scratch against SMU. The competition at defensive tackle is stiff. If Oliver misses more time, he could get shut out from postseason honors.GROUP OF FIVE STARBrett Rypien, QB, Boise State The senior has thrown for 2,779 yards with 24 touchdowns and six interceptions for a Broncos team that began the season with hopes of a getting into a New Years Six bowl and the playoff discussion. Thats likely gone after two losses, but the Mountain West crown is still very much in play. Rypien leads Boise State against No. 16 Fresno State this week. Last season, he threw for 246 yards against the Bulldogs tough defense, but completed only 53 percent and didnt throw a touchdown pass. He is poised to become the Mountain West career leader in yards passing and completions.

Defending champion: Patton Kizzire. Last week: Bryson DeChambeau won the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas. FedEx Cup leader: Xander Schauffele. Notes: Jordan Spieth makes his “rst appearance in Mayakoba, and his “nal appearance before getting married. ... Rickie Fowler and Tony Finau give the “eld three of the top 15 players in the world. ... For the second straight week, a fall event on the PGA Tour has a higher strength-of-“eld rating than the Rolex Series event on the European Tour. ... Chris Stroud is the only player to compete at Mayakoba every year since it began in 2007. ... Abraham Ancer is among seven Mexican professionals in the “eld, three of whom have full PGA Tour cards. ... Fred Funk won the inaugural tournament at age 50. ... Graeme McDowell is the only player born outside the U.S. to have won in Mayakoba. ... Kizzire, who beat Fowler by one shot last year, won twice in four tournaments when he added a title at the Sony Open. He didnt have another top 10 the rest of the season and got the last spot into the Tour Championship. Next week: RSM Classic.

Parel could win with a “nish as low as fourth. ... Steve Stricker (No. 13) is the only player among the 36man “eld not playing. Stricker ends the year with $1,196,235 in seven events. Stricker played 12 times on the PGA Tour and earned $582,566. ... Langer has won the Schwab Cup three times in the last four years.

The video shows players discussing their ineffective penalty kill and mocking assistant Martin Raymond in what appears to be a recording from a camera mounted on the dash of an Uber Drivers van or SUV. There are seven players in the vehicle, including Matt Duchene, Chris Wideman, Chris Tierney and Thomas Chabot. Post Media shared the video on its YouTube page Monday night. It said the video was originally posted elsewhere over the weekend and has since been deleted. Its not clear who posted the original video. Players ridiculed Raymond, who handles the teams penalty-killing unit. Duchene calls Raymond the only coach in NHL history to have the worst power play and the worst PK within a calendar year.ŽSenators players filmed trashing team, coach while in Uber NHL By JAY COHENAP SPORTS WRITERCHICAGO „ Joel Quenneville knew the deal. After three Stanley Cup titles and nine playoff appearances with the Chicago Blackhawks, the longtime coach “gured this was a big season for him. I only think were in the winning business and we better win,Ž Quenneville said on the “rst day of training camp. Two months later, it was over. The Blackhawks “red Quenneville on Tuesday, ending a wildly successful run that returned the franchise to the top of the NHL after years of heartache. Chicago has lost “ve in a row. This is certainly a very dif“cult decision,Ž general manager Stan Bowman said in a statement. But I believe it is in the best interests of the Blackhawks organization. We need to maximize each and every opportunity with our playoff goals in mind and create continued growth and development throughout our roster at the same time. After much deliberation the last several days, with great respect to what Joel has meant to the Blackhawks, we knew we had to make a change.Ž The 60-year-old Quenneville had another year left on a three-year contract extension he signed in 2016 that pays him $6 million per year, second highest in the NHL behind Mike Babcock in Toronto. He was the longest-tenured head coach in the NHL and the second coach “red in the past three days after the Los Angeles Kings dismissed John Stevens. Whenever Quenneville wants to get back to work, he likely will have plenty of suitors. The former NHL defenseman has 890 wins in 22 years as a head coach with St. Louis, Colorado and Chicago. Scotty Bowman, Stans father and a senior adviser with the Blackhawks, is the only man with more regular-season victories. Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Keith and Seabrook blossomed with Quenneville behind the bench, and the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup in 2010, 2013 and 2015. They also made it to the conference “nals in 2009 and 2014. Quenneville “nishes with a 452-249-96 record with Chicago. He also went 76-52 in the playoffs with the Blackhawks for the best record in franchise history.Blackhawks fire 3-time Stanley Cup-winning coach Quenneville AP PHOTOIn this July 21, 2017 “le photo, Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville speaks at a news conference during the NHL hockey teams convention in Chicago.
