Sports WireGood morning To Mel Feathers Thanks for reading! TheNewsSunBy MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERVENUS „ A 14-year-old male from Sebring, who was sitting in the bed of a truck, died Saturday around 2:15 a.m. after the driver failed to negotiate a left-hand curve on Old State Road 8, just south of Henry Drive in Venus. Andrew Warren Stephens, 14, was unrestrained and riding in the bed of the truck. He was ejected from the vehicle, which crossed both lanes of traffic on Old State Road 8 and overturned after hitting the ditch. Stephens was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the truck was taken to Florida Hospital in Lake Placid for injuries and was treated and released. It is unknown if he was wearing a seat belt. A 15-year-old female from Wesley Chapel, who was wearing a seat belt, received minor injuries and was not taken to the hospital for treatment. The Florida Highway Patrol is still investigating the incident.Sebring teen dies in traffic accident By MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ The dream to restore the Nan-Ces-O-Wee and turn it into modern apartments began in 2015, and now that vision is close to becoming a reality. Tony Collins purchased the Nan-Ces-O-Wee on March 12, 2015, and he has had to overcome many obstacles to find financing for the renovations. Collins had approached the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) for funds to help restore the historic building downtown, located across the street from Dees Place. However, funds from the CRA are reimbursable. Owners must make the improvements first and provide proof of renovations before the CRA disburses money. This system assures accountability, making sure that every penny spent by the CRA actually improves the downtown area. Collins investigated his financing options to find the best offer. He told the CRA that he had one offer, but he wanted a better one. He found it, and now the project has taken a long stride towards completion. Tony submitted his commitment letter as proof of financing for the project,Ž Kristie Vazquez, CRA Executive Director, said. We are so excited that this is becoming a reality!Ž The dream had almost died. The CRA grew tired of waiting for Collins to provide proof of financing. Previously, the newspaper reported the CRA had withdrawn incentives for the Nan-Ces-O-Wee in April, saying the money had been tied up for too long. The CRA wanted to see Collins, the developer who purchased the Nan-Ces-O-Wee and the Santa Rosa hotels, have a loan commitment to renovate the NanCes-O-Wee before tying up funds any longer. Collins had trouble finding financing earlier, but as the housing market improved, so did his options. He asked the CRA board for an extension, and they granted his request. The CRAs patience was rewarded with a loan commitment letter earlier this month. They [the CRA board] committed to supporting the project in the original amount of $450k, and I will be working to draft the development agreement for the By MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERAVON PARK „ A 2-yearold child and an adult were shot in a drive-by shooting in Avon Park on Saturday around 9 p.m., sending both to the hospital. The Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce received a call at 9:06 p.m. regarding shots “red in the area of 49 E. Metcalfe St. Another call came a few minutes later, but this time it was from the emergency room at Florida Hospital Heartland. The two gunshot victims were at the ER seeking treatment. Florida Hospital Heartland began treating the adult, but the 2-year-old child was ”own to Tampa General Hospital. Authorities believe that the injuries are not life-threatening. The Highlands News-Sun previously reported on a shooting that occurred earlier this year that was just two-tenths of a mile from this shooting. The area of 49 E. Metcalfe St. is just two streets over from the 200 block on Tulane Drive in Avon Park, where two people were injured in a drive-by shooting on June 25, 2018. The victims of the previous shooting „ one 15 and the other 22 „ were riding the same bike around 2:10 p.m. when someone drove by shooting multiple times. Injuries were non life-threatening in the previous shooting as well. Jomarris Tysheim Mack, 22, of Sebring was arrested around 5:15 p.m. near Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Lemon Street in Sebring for the June 25 shooting. As of press time, no arrests have been made in the shooting on Saturday and the HCSO is still investigating. Investigators are requesting help from residents to solve this crime. Anyone with information regarding this shooting should call 863-402-7200 or email Information can also be left with Heartland Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800226-TIPS or by visiting the organizations website at People who submit tips will always remain anonymous and may receive up to $3,000 cash for information.

The 33rd Annual CCC Festival provided an outdoor classroom filled with folk music, arts, crafts and living Florida history. The artistic booths, educational vendors and toe-tapping music created a lively atmosphere that captivated participants and kept them coming back. Weve been coming here every year for 18 years,Ž Phyllis Tomlinson said. We love it!Ž This CCC Festival is the only festival of its kind in the state,Ž Carla Kappmeyer-Sherwin, park services specialist, said. We still have returning CCC boys who visit.Ž Attendees learned how the CCC boys worked to keep their families from starving during the Great Depression. Unemployed and unmarried men ages 18-25, who were often hungry and poverty stricken, flocked to CCC camps where they built state parks, preserved the environment and learned job skills. They earned $30 a month, and $25 was sent back home to help their families. The money that was sent home is credited with saving 21 million Americans from starvation, Darrel Smith, former CCC Museum curator, said. It was the greatest vocational school our country has ever seen,Ž Smith said. Young men had a chance to finish their high school education and learn various trades, such as blacksmithing. Smith interviewed over 300 CCC boys so that he could create realistic reenactments for people who toured the CCC Museum. He portrayed Velmar Mack, who served in the CCC from 1936-1937 and described the way of life in the camps CCC Festival celebrates contributions of the CCC boys MELISSA MAIN/STAFFDarrel Smith portrayed Velmar Mack, a CCC boy, at the festival. Smith met and interviewed over 300 former CCC boys so that he could create realistic enactments for visitors at the CCC Museum.

Retired Colonel Mike Borders, director of the ceremony, thanked those that had assembled and introduced Betsy Waddell, president of the Veterans Council, who acted as emcee for the event. The Sebring High School JROTC Honor Guard posted the colors after the invocation, and Becky McIntyre sang two patriotic songs, The Star Spangled BannerŽ and God Bless AmericaŽ by Lee Greenwood. The veterans of the Korean War stood to be honored, and the crowd erupted in applause and took to their feet to honor those who had served.

When the Service Song MedleyŽ was played over the loudspeaker, men stood when the song representing their branch of service wafted through the air. The audience clapped enthusiastically as each branch of the military was honored. Retired Brigadier General Bobby Lee, a Sebring native who was appointed as the Chief of Army War Plans during Operation Desert Storm, was the guest speaker and addressed the crowd. Today marks the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, which has been called Veterans Day since 1954, he said. Lee said, I want to honor all those who have served our fellow Americans unconditionally, and for that I offer you my unwavering respect and admiration.Ž During his address, Lee recapped highlights of the Korean War. Approximately 36,000 people died in the Korean War, and 7,000 Americans are still missing. A few, maybe seven, were returned recently, he said. Hopefully if a peace treaty is signed between North and South Korea, many, many more will come home.Ž Although the Korean War ended, a peace treaty was never signed. Harry Truman never made a formal declaration of war. During this period, we led the nation in civil rights action,Ž Lee said. We ordered the integration of the military. This was the second time we had fought as an integrated force. The “rst time was during the Revolutionary War.Ž After Lees address, Mr. Charles Wiggins, a veteran, read his poem What Old Glory Means to Me.Ž His words brimmed with emotion as he spoke of the ”ag. One line of the poem said, Its the banner we all look to when our hearts are full of fear,Ž and another read, We must honor God and protect it, or our freedom may not last.ŽKOREANFROM PAGE 1A MELISSA MAIN/STAFFBecky McIntyre sang The Star Spangled BannerŽ and God Bless the U.S.AŽ at the Veterans Day Commemoration Ceremony on Sunday.

The goal is to have that agreement complete and for the boards approval on their agenda for the 26th [of November], Vazquez said. We hope to have that to Tony shortly after, where he can sign by December 1st, and get started with construction around the middle of March. I am meeting with the CRA to finalize their participation, Collins said. I am in process of putting together the final construction documents and pricing and moving forward. We should close on the loan and start construction by mid-February. I anticipate 12 months of construction, he said. It should be completed by early 2020. The Nan-Ces-O-Wee will be converted into 25 multi-family units. The apartment complex will have one and two-bedroom apartments with a long list of modern amenities, including key fob entry, a security system with video surveillance, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, a workout room and a community area with WiFi. I also anticipate allocating six to eight of the units for short-term professional apartments, Collins said. I plan to have up to four retail spaces on the first floor. We are looking at options to revisit the Santa Rosa and putting 41 additional units there, he said. The CRAs dream of increasing foot traffic downtown and having a ready market of buyers for merchants around the Circle and along the spoke streets coincided with Collins dream of restoring an historic building and turning it into modern apartments in an area where it is hard to find rental housing. The teaming of the two entities helped to make both dream come true for the benefit all parties involved, especially the City of Sebring.PROJECTFROM PAGE 1A MELISSA MAIN/STAFFThe Nan-Ces-O-Wee, an historic building at 139 N.

He was born on Sept. 6, 1946 in Washington, D.C. to Jules and Josephine DeGrave. He is survived by his wife, Patricia, and four sons, Robert J. DeGrave Jr. (Angela), Brian DeGrave (Paula), Michael DeGrave (Stephanie) and Greg Schaffer (Tiffany); and 16 grandchildren. Robert enjoyed golf, and was a member of the Sebring Golf Club. He was a proud business owner and a director of Sunny Hills Assisted Living Facility. A memorial service was held on Sunday, Nov. 11, 2018. Arrangements entrusted to StephensonNelson Funeral Home, 4001 Sebring Parkway, Sebring, FL 33870. Online condolences may be left at stephensonnelsonfh. com.OBITUARIES By DAVID AUSTINMASTER GARDENEROn Tuesday, Nov. 6, the Highlands County Commissioners voted unanimously to allow a teaching pavilion to be built on the property of the Bert J Harris Agricultural Civic Center with funds to be raised by the Highlands County Master Gardeners. The commissioners approved it to be named the Charles V. Reynolds Teaching Pavilion. As part of the funding, the Highlands County Master Gardeners will start selling honorary bricks that will be placed under the building and on walkways leading to the pavilion. The Master Gardeners hope to start sales of the bricks at the Nov. 17 Garden Festival at the Bert J Harris Agricultural Civic Center. The Festival runs 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and replaces the annual Plant Sale. Charles V. Reynolds wrote articles weekly in the Highlands News-Sun as a volunteer Master Gardener. Like everything he did it was a labor of love. During his time as a Master Gardener he wrote at least 80 horticulture related articles. He wrote with humor, as if he were having a conversation with each reader. When you read them he might as well been spinning a tale in your own living room. Charlie, as he was known by most, passed away June 3 this year. Reynolds was honored last year at the State of Florida Master Gardener convention as Master Gardener of the Year.Ž State coordinator, Wendy Wilber said that Charlie had been chosen because of the scope of his involvement in the community and not because of one project. Reynolds got involved without hesitation when the Avon Park Housing Authority needed help with their community garden. He visited that garden weekly and worked with the tenants. He started his Dream Chasers 4-H club that were comprised of underprivileged kids from that same housing developments community garden. Reynolds struck up a friendship with Tommy Sauls, the local guard at the Avon Park Correctional Institution. Tommy was in charge of the State Prisons Ornamental Plant Nursery. Together they forged a path for the inmates to be trained in FNGLA (Florida Nursery, Growers & Landscape Association) certi“cation and Agriculture Pesticide Applicator training. He drove 30 miles each way once a week for nearly two years. He proudly spoke of his students as My Boys.Ž The program gives inmates an opportunity to take a trade and knowledge with them as they left the prison system. Two of his “rst students now work in Floridas Agriculture industry. When Cindy Marshall of the Ridge Area ARC Aktion Club called, an organization serving and advocating for individuals with developmental and other disabilities in Avon Park Florida, Charlie went to work. He taught them about vegetable gardening and helped them set up the raised beds for their gardens. The Aktion Club is still heavily involved with assisting the Master Gardeners. One of the raised beds at their garden has a plaque with his name thanking him. Once a month Charlie spent an hour on the Barry Foster Show giving homeowners advice on taking care of their plants and growing gardens. The arm of his knowledge stretched out into the community and was multiplied by those he worked with. As quick as he was done with one project, he was off helping somewhere else. Whether it was planting school gardens, where he was known as Mr. Charlie,Ž or “xing an irrigation pipe at the Boys and Girls Club he was always busy. Behind him, he left a trail of trained Master Gardener volunteers. Temikia, from the Housing Authority Community Garden, Tommy from the Correctional Institution and Cindy at the Ridge Area Arc Aktion Club. When he earned State Master Gardener of the year in 2017 it was no surprise to me; I just wondered how it took so long. The next Monday he was back at work volunteering. That was just Charlie.

The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by the influenza virus. The flu can cause mild to severe illness and can be deadly „ especially to vulnerable people, including the very young, the elderly and those with certain chronic health conditions. Symptoms can include a sudden onset of fever, dry cough, headache, muscle aches, tiredness, sore throat, and nasal congestion or stuffiness. With school in session, children are in close quarters with other kids, raising the risk of contracting all sorts of illnesses, flu among them. Health officials have long touted the importance of getting vaccinated. Dr. Tracy Foo, S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control immunization medical consultant, encourages everyone six months and older to be vaccinated every flu season. Getting your flu vaccine protects not only you, but your whole family and community,Ž she said. Last flu season was one of the worst in recent years and highlights the importance of getting your flu vaccine.Ž Even if you were vaccinated last year, you should do so again this year because protection provided by last seasons vaccine decreases over time. Also, the flu vaccine is updated each year to keep up with changing flu viruses. ... Flu vaccine is available from many local providers „ including doctors offices, clinics, pharmacies, schools and workplaces. DHEC county public health departments offer flu shots. To learn more about where to get vaccinated, visit While there is no guarantee of not contracting influenza even with the vaccine, the proof is in the history of results. But too many people dont take getting a flu shot seriously. Flu viruses are easily transmitted from person to person. With the increased exposure the new school year, football season and the coming holidays bring, it is important to receive a vaccination in a timely manner. From the date of vaccination, it takes approximately two weeks for the antibodies that provide protection to develop in the body. In addition to getting vaccinated, South Carolina residents are encouraged to practice good health habits each day. ... While we count on our leaders and health experts to warn of and address the threat of the unusual, do your part against a known threat. Get a flu shot. An editorial from the Times and Democrat of Orangeburg, South Carolina.Protect yourself and othersThis summer on a swing through Boston, I took the Fenway Park tour. Along the way, our guide pointed out the retired Red Sox numbers hanging over the grandstands: No. 1 Bobby Doerr, No. 6 Johnny Pesky, No. 8 Yaz and others that included David Ortiz, Pedro Martinez, Jim Rice and Carlton Fisk, even though he played more years for the Chicago White Sox than the Bosox. When the guide announced No. 9 Ted Williams, I broke out in spontaneous applause, but absolutely no one joined me. Immediately, the reality struck me. Williams prestigious batting feats live on, but his gutsy service as a U.S. Marine Corp “ghter pilot who ”ew 39 missions during World War II and the Korean War with a stint as Major John Glenns wingman „ the events that prompted my respectful ovation „ are long forgotten. The Kid, a two-time Triple Crown winner, the last .400 hitter and possibly the most prodigious hitter for average and power, lives on. But as Americas fearless defender, Captain Ted Williams memory has faded among all except baseball historians. Let Williams pilot buddies describe his ”ying skills. In 1952, after heavy enemy “re hit Williams F-9 Panther, his aircraft was ablaze, and the hydraulics and radio were gone. But worried that broken legs would end his baseball days, Williams refused to parachute to safety. Instead, Williams made a spectacular daredevil belly landing. Anxiously awaiting Williams near the runway, his combat pilot friend Lieutenant Colonel Jerry Coleman, the slick “elding New York Yankees World Series champions second baseman and later San Diego Padres announcer who ”ew 120 missions in World War II and Korea, kidded Williams that he landed a lot faster than he ran the bases. Despite his close brush with death, Williams took off on another mission at 8:08 the next morning. Before he died in 2002, astronaut, former U.S. Senator and senior citizen Glenn, who returned to space at age 77, said that Williams was an excellent pilotŽ who may have batted .400 for the Red Sox, but he hit one thousand as a U.S. Marine.Ž And Williams, perhaps unknowingly, acknowledged Glenns praise when he said that of all his baseball accomplishments „ the 19 All-Star Games and two-time MVP awards that he garnered „ the honor which he most valued was being Captain Ted Williams. The great what ifŽ among the baseball bugs hot stove league discussions often centers on what Williams lifetime batting achievements would have been had he not lost “ve prime-time years during World War II and Korea. Williams stands in baseballs record books as having “nished his career with a .344 average, 2,654 hits, 521 home runs and 1,839 RBI. Sabermetricians calculate that had Williams played during his “ve years serving in wartime, his career totals would have been .342 with 3,452 hits, 663 home runs and 2,380 RBI. Opinions about who baseballs greatest hitter is always include Williams, Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Jimmie Foxx. But getting on base is what baseball is about, and in that category Williams has no equal. In .482 or nearly half his at bats, Williams successfully got on base or touched home. But somehow, Williams, the great American defender, is rarely discussed, an oversight that puzzled Coleman. Late in his life, Coleman commented that Williams and he knew one thing for sure. America was and always will be bigger and more important than baseball. Joe Guzzardi is a member of the Society for American Baseball Research and the American Internet Baseball Writers Association. Contact him at guzzjoe@ Glenn: Ted Williams batted 1.000 for AmericaGUEST COLUMNJoe Guzzardi So whats the “nal score? Who won the midterm elections on Tuesday night? The D team or the R team? Lets see. The Democrats and the progressive left have got Nancy Pelosi back as Speaker of the House for two years. Maxine Waters is ready to rumble too. Whoopee. Im sure Nancy, Maxine and their aged claque of Trump haters and progressives will quickly show America their nasty partisan nature. Theyve already signaled that they are more interested in trying to impeach Donald Trump than reaching bipartisan consensus on important issues like immigration or funding our infrastructure needs. Meanwhile, since the Republicans kept the Senate, for the next two years they get to con“rm any new Supreme Court justices and dozens more federal judges. The way I score it, the midterms add up to a monumental win for President Trump, the Republican Party and the rest of the country. It was presidents tireless campaigning and “ghting spirit that made the difference „ and made it a historic night. Its normal for the House of Representatives to switch parties in a presidents “rst midterm election. Ask George W. Bush. Ask Barrack Obama. Whats really historically abnormal in the midterms is for the presidents party to gain U.S. Senate seats, as the Republicans did. In the aftermath of Tuesdays results, its interesting to note how differently the Republicans and Democrats have reacted to their losses. President Trump and Mitch McConnell took it like adults. They didnt go on Fox News blaming the government of Saudi Arabia or some other country for messing with our election process to cause Republicans to lose the House to the Democrats. Republicans know you win some elections and you lose some. They know its how party politics in America works and has since about 1800. But on the left, the Democrats and their hit men in the deranged liberal media can never believe it when they lose an election. This time theyre trying to “gure out how the Republicans robbed them of the Senate. Was it the Russians? The Chinese? Iranian hackers? One of their deepest political thinkers, Joy Behar of The View,Ž blamed it on gerrymandering „ until she was told by someone on the show that senators are elected statewide. For the next two years it will be very interesting to see what bipartisanŽ legislation the Democrats propose „ and what actually ends up on the presidents desk. Id like to talk some more about the midterms, but in Southern California 11 young people and a brave police of“cer were gunned down at a college country music night in the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks. To say this latest mass shooting „ which reportedly was done by an ex-Marine who had mental problems „ hit close to home to my family is no exaggeration. In the early 2000s, while my daughter Ashley was in college in the Thousand Oaks area, she was a waitress in the Borderline. She worked many Wednesday college country nights like the one that has shocked the country less than two weeks after a gunman slaughtered 11 Jews in a synagogue in Pittsburgh. You ask when do these horrible killings stop. How do we stop future mass murderers from hurting more innocent people? Dan Bongino, the former Secret Service man, gave the answer on Fox the other night. He said it only stops When a good guy with a gun takes out a bad guy with a gun.Ž Hes right. We need to start protecting ourselves from bad or crazy people with guns with good people with guns. The president has people with guns protecting him. So do actors, rock stars, CEOs and billionaires. Congress has lots of people with guns protecting them „ even while some of them call for tougher gun control laws that would prevent the rest of us law-abiding citizens from defending ourselves. Good people with guns should be protecting our children in schools, churches, synagogues, bars „ wherever they hang. Or arent our children as important as movie stars and politicians?

One part of the scavenger hunt, which was created by Carla Kappmeyer-Sherwin, said, Name two kinds of native Florida trees.Ž Visitors had to read the informational posters and examine the dioramas to find the answers. The CCC boys worked to preserve the environment and protect it for all Americans. The festival linked the conservation efforts of its past with conservation efforts of today. Audubon educated participants about native bird species and encouraged people to protect plant and animals. Archbold Biological Station provided visitors with an opportunity to pet Miss Poser, a Florida Pine Snake, and offered tips on conserving local habitat. Jackson Creek and Back Porch Revival provided toe-tapping music during the morning. Joe Wallen, lead singer and guitarist for Jackson Creek, said, We love this festival. We love the company, the music and the reason they are having it „ the CCC boys.Ž The festival gave visitors, both young and young at heart, an opportunity to learn about the history of the United States and how they could be a part of conservation today.

SPORTS SECTION A Monday, November 12, 2018 • LOCAL • STATE • NATIONAL By JIM TAYLORCORRESPONDENTSEBRING … The Sebring Blue Steaks girls soccer team fell to the Mulberry Panthers by a score of 4-0 in their last preseason match on Thursday night at Firemens Field. The “nal score was not as important to Sebring Head Coach TJ Lackey as it was to switch his lineup around due to injuries to multiple starting players. We have two of our big starters from last year out with injuries,Ž said Lackey. We might get one back near the end of the season and the other we are not sure about right now.Ž With that, Lackey said they moved some people from the defensive side to the mid and forward positions, hoping they can utilize their speed and adjust to the position changes. Mulberry took the lead early when Olivia Gelsinger took a pass in front of the Sebring goal and placed it in the net to give the Panthers a 1-0 lead just two minutes into the match. Mulberry added to its lead with 18 minutes left in the “rst half off a corner kick, the goal by Anay Alcala to put the Panthers up 2-0. Mulberry eventually went into the half with a 3-0 advantage as Gelsinger scored her second goal of the match with ten minutes left in the “rst half.

When the New York Giants ”ashy wide receiver was asked Friday what he hoped his 1-7 team would do for the remainder of the season, Beckham didnt pull any punches. I think the goal is to win eight games, go 9-7 and go to the playoffs,Ž Beckham said. Even though no NFL team has ever pulled off such a comeback? Its not an easy task,Ž Beckham added. But thats the goal. We want to win every game and I want to do everything I can to help that. The Giants have been there before, gone 9-7 and got into the playoffs. Anything is possible. Its not impossible to win eight games. It wasnt impossible to lose seven. Anything can happen.Ž Beckham remained upbeat as his team prepared to face the San Francisco 49ers in Santa Clara, California tonight. He was certain his team is ready to turn it around, albeit in miraculous fashion „ provided the Giants do a better job of scoring touchdowns. Weve lost a lot of close games that we just didnt pull through,Ž Beckham said. We know what situations were in when we are in those close games. We just havent found a way to pull them through. Its easy to sit up here and be like we want to win eight games knowing that its very tough to do.

On Sunday, the “nal lap made all the difference, as Sebrings Nathanial Sparks passed Sick Sideways teammate Drake Kemper, giving him the overall MX-5 Cup Challenge victory. Kemper placed second in both Sundays race and in the overall two-race standings, while Selin Rollan made it a Sick Sideways podium sweep on Sunday with a third-place “nish. Sick Sideways owner John Dean II claimed third overall in the two-race event, which was part of the Michelin IMSA SportsCar Encore. Sparks previously won the Global MX-5 Cup Invitational in 2016, which was a precursor of sorts to the Challenge, so is no stranger to competing against the best MX-5 Cup drivers in the world in a two-race showdown. But there is one major difference between the two events; the winner of this weekends Global Mazda MX-5 Cup Challenge received $50,000. About halfway through the race I was telling myself its not too serious, Im here to have fun and then I said I think Im changing that right now,Ž Sparks said. This is serious. Fun can come later.Ž Sparks said he knew where he needed to “nish to come away with the overall win, but he did get a reminder from his father over the radio. I had it all “gured out,Ž he said. My dad did tell me with about 10 minutes left, hey you could win this and I was thinking I dont need that right now. Ten minutes is a long time.Ž Being able to stay home Sparks captures MX-5 Cup ChallengeSebrings Sick Sideways sweeps Sunday podiums ALLEN MOODY/STAFFSick Sideways drivers, from left, Nathanial Spark, Selin Rollan and Drake Kemper celebrate on the podium after taking the top t hree spots in Sundays Global Mazda MX-5 Cup Challenge race at Sebring International Raceway.

I got to invite people who I see every day. I go to the deli and Id say Come and see us and see what were all about. A lot of my close friends and family got to come and that made it special.Ž In Saturdays “rst race, Dean led the entire way until the “nal lap, when Japans Yuui Tsutsumi was able to get past on Sebrings famous Turn 17 to take the win, with Dean placing second and fellow Sick Sideways driver Robert Noaker taking third. Sparks was fourth, with Kemper placing “fth and veteran sportscar racer Andy Lally was sixth. Dean started from the pole both races and was leading Sundays race until an incident with Tsutsumi led to a drive-through penalty, which effectively took him out of title contention. That left the door open for Sparks, Kemper and Lally, but Lally dropped out of the race with some clutch issues and left the Sick Sideways drivers battling up front. Sparks said Kemper passed him with a clean, aggressive move and he was thankful for being able to return the favor on the last lap. While some drivers use the Global Mazda MX-5 Cup Presented by BFGoodrich as a springboard to a bigger series, Sparks said he really enjoys the Mazda series. I love this MX-5 Cup, thats why I keep coming back,Ž he said. I get to compete against some of the best we have, guys like John Dean, Andy Lallys out here and its great to have him running in our series. Nikko (Reger), our champion „ unfortunately he had some issues this weekend. And then theres my teammates „ Selin, Drake and Robert Noaker, a 14-year-old who got a podium Saturday. Being able to compete against those guys and bring home something for my team is amazing. To his credit, Dean picked up enough spots to claim third place overall and $10,000, while also making it a weekend to remember for Sick Sideways, who claimed “ve out of six podium spots, along with a sweep of the top three overall positions. Sparks said there were quite a few people who helped make the series what it is. Obviously we have to thank Mazda, Andersen Promotions, VP Fuels, BFGoodrich, all those guys who keep us going,Ž he said. And my family.

He was asked if he felt he had any pressure to be the one who kick-starts the offense. Not any more than I ever have,Ž said Beckham, who has caught 61 passes for 785 yards and two touchdowns this season. Hopefully I can start catching some of these things and start taking them to the crib, making bigger plays. I put more on myself. Whatever happens is whats going to happen, but I know that my mentality is not going to be to quit. Im not going to be out there not trying to go hard every play.

CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDESECTION BMonday, November 12, 2018 HIGHLANDS HEALTH Most people conjure up an image in their mind about eating oatmeal. Its usually the vision of someone over the age of 60, seeking the joys of regularity. But it should not be that cliche. If youre interested in a good meal that is packed with vitamins and minerals, and even some cancer-fighting phytonutrients, oatmeal is top of the list. Oatmeal can help support you in your quest to fight diabetes, obesity and colon problems. Here are 3 really convincing reasons to start eating oatmeal. 1. Want protection from germs or cancer? Oats are a very healthy source of carbs, fat, protein, and fiber. The most famous fiber of all is beta glucan,Ž a natural immunomodulator. It makes sure that your immune systems radar detector is on alert, thereby placing your fighter cells on guard in case home-invaders show up. The most common attackers are bacteria, viruses and rogue cells that cause cancer. Scientists have found evidence that it can stimulate the growth of new stem cells too. 2. Feeling Tired or Anemic? Oats contain many vitamins and minerals, especially iron. Just one cup of dried oats contains 26 percent of the Recommended Daily Allowance for iron. Obviously, you want to cook the oats. Whats nice about this is that iron supplements can be very hard on your gastrointestinal tract, and can cause stool discoloration, cramps, constipation and severe nausea or vomiting. So to have a delicious meal and know that youre getting much needed iron can be a blessing. 3. Need to work on blood sugar or cholesterol? It is the soluble fiber in oatmeal which can slow down the rate at which carbs are broken down and digested. This stabilizes your blood sugar, and prevents crazy peaks and troughs. Because it keeps blood sugar stable, oatmeal is theoretically great at preventing complications from diabetes or other chronic illnesses. It literally improves insulin resistance. I am definitely an oatmeal fan if you havent deduced that by now. I think I make the best too! Oatmeal lovers rarely go on statins too! Eating oatmeal even twice a week can have an immediate impact on longevity. Researchers have stated that no matter when you begin upping your intake of dietary fiber, the benefits to your health are virtually immediate. If youd like my delicious recipe for oatmeal, as well as a longer version of my article, sign up for my free newsletter at suzycohen. com and Ill email it to you. Youll also get a downloadable copy of my ebook, Spices That Heal.3 Convincing reasons to eat more oatmealDEAR PHARMACISTSuzy Cohen SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNDURHAM, N.C. … People younger than age 40 who have high blood pressure are at increased risk of heart failu re, strokes and blood vessel blockages as they age, according to a study in JAMA led by a Duke Health researcher. The study, which used new guidelines issued in 2017 that lowered the clinical definition of high blood pressure from earlier levels, suggests that identifying and treating the condition in younger people might have long-term benefit. This is a first step in assessing whether high blood pressure, as defined by the new criteria, is something that younger people should be concerned about as a potential precursor to serious problems,Ž said lead author Yuichiro Yano, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Community & Family Medicine at Duke. Although this is an observational study, it Hypertension increases risk of stroke in those under 40 BOSTON UNIVERSITY PHOTOA doctor taking blood pressure. SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNCigarette smoking has reached the lowest level ever recorded among U.S. adults, according to new data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the National Institutes of Healths National Cancer Institute (NCI). Still, about 47 million (1 in 5) U.S. adults used a tobacco product in 2017, and they used a variety of smoked, smokeless and electronic tobacco products. An estimated 14 percent of U.S. adults (34 million) were current (every dayŽ or some dayŽ) cigarette smokers in 2017 „ down from 15.5 in 2016 „ a 67 percent decline since 1965. A particularly notable decline occurred among young adults between 2016 and 2017: about 10 percent of young adults aged 18 to 24 years smoked cigarettes in 2017, down from 13 percent in 2016. This new all-time low in cigarette smoking among U.S. adults is a tremendous public health accomplishment … and it demonstrates the importance of continued proven strategies to reduce smoking,Ž said CDC Director Robert Redfield. Despite this progress, work remains to reduce the harmful health effects of tobacco use.Ž Data from the 2017 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), released in todays Morbidity and Mortality Smoking numbers hit all-time low SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNCHICAGO „ More personalized risk assessments and new cholesterol-lowering drug options for people at the highest risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) are among the key recommendations in the 2018 cholesterol guidelines from the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American College of Cardiology (ACC). The guidelines were presented this week at the Associations 2018 Scienti“c Sessions conference in Chicago, the premier annual global forum for the exchange of the latest advances in cardiovascular science for researchers and clinicians. The guidelines were simultaneously published in the American Heart Association journal, Circulation and the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. The updated guidelines reinforce the importance of healthy living, lifestyle modi“cation and prevention. They build on the major shift we made in our 2013 cholesterol recommendations to focus on identifying and addressing lifetime risks for cardiovascular disease,Ž said Ivor Benjamin, M.D., FAHA, president of the American Heart Association. Having high cholesterol at any age increases that risk signi“cantly. Thats why its so important that even at a young age, people follow a heartheathy lifestyle and understand and maintain healthy cholesterol levels.Ž Nearly one of every three American adults have high levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), considered the badŽ cholesterol because it contributes to fatty plaque buildups and narrowing of the arteries. About 94.6 million, or 39.7 percent, of American adults have total cholesterol of 200 mg/dL or higher, while research shows that people with LDL-C levels of 100 mg/dL or lower tend to have lower rates of heart disease and stroke, supporting a lower is betterŽ philosophy. High cholesterol treatment American Heart Association has new cholesterol guidelines AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION PHOTOA cholesterol test done at a lab.NEW | 2B STROKE | 3B SMOKING | 7B


B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | November 12, 2018 is not one size “ts all, and this guideline strongly establishes the importance of personalized care,Ž said Michael Valentine, M.D., FACC, president of the American College of Cardiology. Over the past “ve years, weve learned even more about new treatment options and which patients may bene“t from them. By providing a treatment roadmap for clinicians, we are giving them the tools to help their patients understand and manage their risk and live longer, healthier lives. A special report simultaneously published as a companion to the cholesterol guidelines provides a more detailed perspective about the use of quantitative risk assessment in primary prevention for cardiovascular disease. The risk calculator introduced in the 2013 guidelines remains an essential tool to help health care providers identify a patients 10-year risk for CVD. Because the calculator uses population-based formulas, the guidelines now urge doctors to talk with patients about risk-enhancing factorsŽ that can provide a more personalized perspective of a persons risk, in addition to traditional risk factors such as smoking, high blood pressure and high blood sugar to address under or over-estimated risk in some individuals. Risk-enhancing factors include family history and ethnicity, as well as certain health conditions such as metabolic syndrome, chronic kidney disease, chronic in”ammatory conditions, premature menopause or pre-eclampsia and high lipid biomarkers. This additional information can make a difference in what kind of treatment plan a person needs. In primary and secondary prevention, when high cholesterol cant be controlled by diet or exercise, the “rst line of treatment is typically statins, mostly available in generic forms and long-proven to safely and effectively lower LDL-C levels and CVD risk. For people who have already had a heart attack or stroke and are at highest risk for another and whose LDL-C levels are not adequately lowered by statin therapy, the guidelines now recommend the select use of other cholesterol-lowing drugs that can be added to a statin regimen. The guidelines recommend a stepped-approach of ezetimibe, available as a generic, in addition to the statin for these patients. If that combination doesnt work well enough, a PCSK9 inhibitor could be added, speci“cally for people who are at very high risk. This approach may also be considered in primary prevention for people who have a genetic condition that causes their very high LDL-C. There have been concerns over the cost of PCSK9 inhibitors and some insurance companies have been slow to cover them, so its important to note that the economic value of these new medications may be substantial only for a very speci“c group of people for whom other treatments havent worked,Ž Benjamin said. The Association is bringing together stakeholders to discuss “nancial barriers to the care of heart disease and stroke. We have been heartened that drug makers have recently agreed to reduce the prices of PSCK9 inhibitors and are making arrangements with payors to ease the “nancial burden for patients who could bene“t from the additional medication options.Ž The College has long recognized that the cost of PCSK9s have made patient access an issue. We are committed to helping physicians with access to care issues, while also bringing together stakeholders, including payer, industry and clinician representatives, to talk about opportunities to move forward together,Ž Valentine said. Our goal is to make sure the highest risk patients have access to the care they need.Ž Once treatment is started, whether only lifestyle modi“cations are prescribed or if medication therapy is added, adherence and effectiveness should be assessed at 4 to 12 weeks with a fasting lipid test, then retested every 3-12 months based on determined needs. Another new aspect of the guidelines is the recommendation of coronary artery calcium (CAC) measurements for people in some risk categories, when their risk level isnt clear and treatment decisions are less certain. A CAC score of zero typically indicates a low risk for CVD and could mean those people can forego or at least delay cholesterol-lowering therapy as long as they are non-smokers or dont have other high-risk behaviors or characteristics. This measurement of calci“ed plaque is a non-invasive heart scan that should be done by a quali“ed provider in a facility offering the most current technology. Recognizing the cumulative effect of high cholesterol over the full lifespan, identifying and treating it early can help reduce the lifetime risk for CVD. Selective cholesterol testing is appropriate for children as young as two who have a family history of heart disease or high cholesterol. In most children, an initial test can be considered between the ages of nine and 11 and then again between 17 and 21. Because of a lack of suf“cient evidence in young adults, there are no speci“c recommendations for that age group. However, it is essential that they adhere to a healthy lifestyle, be aware of the risk of high cholesterol levels and get treatment as appropriate at all ages to reduce the lifetime risk of heart disease and stroke. This lifespan approach to reducing CVD risk should start at an early age. Kids may not need medication but getting them started on healthy behaviors when theyre young can make a difference in their lifetime risk. When high cholesterol is identi“ed in children, that could also alert a doctor to test other family members who may not realize they have high cholesterol, because awareness and treatment can save lives. The guidelines offer more speci“c recommendations for certain age and ethnic groups, as well as for people with diabetes, all important for the comprehensive and individualized provider-patient discussion.NEWFROM PAGE 1B KECK MEDICINE/USC GRAPHIC AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION PHOTODrawing blood from the “nger to use in a cholesterol test. adno=3592755 EVENT&MEET GREETINTERVENTIONAL CARDIOLOGY & WOMENS WELLNESS CENTERWITHThursday, Nov. 29 | 4:30 6:00 pm Florida Hospital Medical Complex(Adjacent to Florida Hospital Sebring)4240 Sun n Lake Blvd., Second Floor, Suites 200 & 202 Meet our providers: € Phillip Jones, MD € Joseph Massaro, DO € Thomas Shimshak, MD € Marikit Masigla, APRN € Guinevere Bullard, MD € Vandy Mayworth, APRN Take a tour of our facilities, enjoy light refreshments and receive a FREE gift bag.

PAGE 13 November 12, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B3Do you know yours? We all should know why we do what we do. Hopefully, you know your Why!Ž Why do you get up every morning and start your day with a smile. What drives you? When you work with and for the hearing impaired patient there is a lot of why we do what we doŽ available. The last week has offered up diverse collections of hearing needs and assistance to be delivered. It was a week of never-ending brainstorming, teaching and also learning new tech skills, diagnosing, evaluating and attacking tinnitus and hyperacousis. It was a week for compassion. Being in this profession for 38 years and the proud owner of the oldest established hearing aid center in Highlands County (50 years this year), I pay particular attention to our Why.Ž Its important that no matter what type of organization or group (even if it is just a couple people) you are involved with, everyone should be on the same page of Why.Ž Its important from the moment you enter a facility that you feel comfortable and welcome, that you are able to communicate with someone about your needs. No matter what the facility is. Are the people greeting you the way you wish? You should feel like the most important person when you walk through that door. If you need help, you should get it ... right away. Why? Well, because you “nally made the effort to walk through the door and something is needed. Pretty simple concept. Make you feel special and wanted. How can we helpŽ ... Dont we all hate to just sit around and wonder if anyone knows we are waiting? Once that relationship is formed and is comfortable, then more Whys develops. Trust from the patient that maybe we can make their life better. Maybe we can help them talk with their spouse or their kids. Maybe someone just needs us to look at past diagnoses to see if there is light at the end of the tunnel. Maybe someone will just try and help you. A little over a year ago, we added a new hearing health care provider to our staff. Kendra Allen is young (28 years old) and compassionate. She knows her Why.Ž She listens to our patients and with honesty and kindness she explains how we can best help them ... and she loves it. She giggles and laughs and hugs. She listens. There is a saying that the boss can hear everything that goes on. Well, I call that owners ear!,Ž and I can. And I listen. I listen to the laughter that radiates through all the walls in our of“ce. From the front desk, down the hall past our practice administrator of“ce (Bonnie) and all the way to the back. I listen for the Why. Does everyone have it? Yes. There is patience, caring, excitement for the day to start, and smiles at the days accomplishments. The hearing industry covers a broad range of patients, from young children to seniors up in age, maybe even to 103. Hearing loss doesnt care where you come from either. With such a broad spectrum, the needs of a patient with a hearing loss is very personal and speci“c. No two people are alike. Their day may have started with the patient having to say goodbye to their 9-yearold puppy and not really feelingŽ like being in our of“ce. Bonnies WhyŽ was evident in the compassionate conversation that thus evolved. This is a situation where everyone needs to know their WhyŽ. Why you want to help. Perhaps there is a patient who has been told nothing will help and their medical records look bleak. Hopefully, you are working with someone who knows their WhyŽ and the extra steps and time are given to you. New technology provides new hurdles for all of us: you the patient and us the providers. When you know your Why,Ž it is fun and exciting. Often, my owners earŽ has heard patients say to Barbara out front that it is so fun to come here!Ž Barbara knows her Why! She has been enjoying the health care “eld for 60 years. That is a lot of WhyŽ going on. If you know your Why,Ž enjoy. Build on it. Spread those talents and help someone bene“t from that talent and enthusiasm. Let that “re burn. To hear better is to live better! Roseann B.

Always talk to your doctor before following any medical advice or starting a diet or exercise program.Know your whyHEARING MATTERSRoseann Kiefer demonstrates that the new blood pressure guidelines are helpful in identifying those who might be at risk for cardiovascular events,Ž Yano said. Yano and colleagues analyzed more than 4,800 adults who had blood pressure measurements taken before age 40 as part of the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults study (CARDIA), which began in 1985. About half of participants were African-American, and 55 percent were women. Study participants were sorted into four groups based on blood pressure levels set in 2017 by the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association: Normal (120 or lower systolic blood pressure over 80 diastolic or less); elevated (120-129 over less than 80); stage 1 hypertension (130-139 over 80-89); or stage 2 hypertension (140 or greater over 90 or greater). The researchers then tracked whether these participants had serious cardiovascular events over a median follow-up period of about 19 years. In all, 228 incidents occurred, with successively higher rates of events coinciding with successively higher blood pressure levels. Among young adults, those with elevated blood pressure, stage 1 hypertension, and stage 2 hypertension before age 40, as defined by the 2017 guidelines, had significantly higher risk for subsequent cardiovascular disease events, compared to those with normal blood pressure before age 40,Ž Yano said. In addition to Yano, study authors include Jared P. Reis, Laura A. Colangelo, Daichi Shimbo, Anthony J. Viera, Norrina B. Allen, Samuel S. Gidding, Adam Bress, Philip Greenland, Paul Muntner and Donald M. Lloyd-Jones. The study received support from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences.STROKEFROM PAGE 1B METRO CREATIVE SERVICESHypertension puts you at a higher risk for stroke adno=3627647-1 General Practice Urgent Care Botox/Filler Weight Loss931 Mall Ring Rd.

B4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | November 12, 2018 By UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTONMedical researchers are increasingly exploring medications used to treat chronic illnesses to see whether they also might stave off cognitive decline. A study published today in PLOS ONE suggests that some older adults who take a class of blood-pressure medication called angiotensin-II receptor blockers, or ARBs, might be reducing their risk of Alzheimers disease. Doug Barthold of the University of Washington and Julie Zissimopoulos of the University of Southern California, the studys lead authors, compared different blood pressure medications and examined their potential cognitive benefits within subgroups of people based on race, ethnicity, and sex. The researchers found that use of ARBs was associated with a lower rate of Alzheimers among black women and white women and men. Evidence of the reduced risk, however, was inconclusive among black men and Hispanic men and women. Repurposing existing drugs could be an inexpensive means to reduce the large and disparate burden of Alzheimers disease,Ž said Barthold, a UW research assistant professor in the School of Pharmacy. By analyzing commonly used prescription drugs in Medicare claims data, we can identify relationships with Alzheimers disease onset across diverse populations,Ž Strong evidence exists, he said, that managing high blood pressure is an important step to lowering the risk of Alzheimers disease and that some antihypertensive drugs may be more protective than others. The research included records of more than 1 million Medicare enrollees. ARBs containing valsartan, candesartan, and losartan were found to be more protective against Alzheimers than other anti-hypertensives, such as angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and four other classes of drugs. The results merit additional observational studies and randomized control trials that include men and women from diverse racial and ethnic groups, to investigate whether the drugs are causing the effect, the researchers suggested. Alzheimers disease is a growing public health problem. About 5.7 million Americans, most over 65, live with Alzheimers disease; that number is expected to grow to 7.1 million in 2025 and 13.8 million in 2050, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. At that incidence, even small delays in disease onset could substantially reduce the financial and caregiving burden facing Americans … pegged at $277 billion and 18 billion hours, respectively, in 2018. The building crisis also reflects the higher incidence of Alzheimers disease among women and racial and ethnic minorities, who are more likely to require high intensity care and have unmet care needs. Alzheimers disease is an enormous public health concern, and while more than a hundred potential drug treatments are in clinical trials, there are still no treatments available to prevent or slow the progression of the disease,Ž wrote Zissimopoulos. She directs the aging research program at the USC Schaeffer Center. All else being equal, for patients who are already being prescribed antihypertensives, these findings highlight a potential differential effect on their risk of acquiring Alzheimers, which a clinician may want to take into account.Ž Study co-authors were Geoffrey Joyce of USC, Whitney Wharton of Emory University, and Patrick Kehoe of University of Bristol (UK).Some hypertension drugs linked to reduced Alzheimers risk HIGHLANDS HEALTH EAR-TRONICS LEASE YOUR HEARING AID!

AWhole Marketplaceof Shoppingisrightat your Fingertips! Weekly Report (MMWR), describe the range and scale of tobacco-product use among U.S. adults. These products include cigarettes, cigars, e-cigarettes, hookah/ water pipes/pipes, and smokeless tobacco. The survey has been used to assess current cigarette smoking among U.S. adults since 1965, but ongoing surveillance of other tobacco products began more recently As tobacco landscape evolves, disparities persist The tobacco product landscape has changed in recent years to include newly developed products. In 2017, cigarettes were the most commonly used product (14 percent) among U.S. adults, followed by cigars, cigarillos, or filtered little cigars (3.8 percent); e-cigarettes (2.8 percent); smokeless tobacco (2.1 percent); and pipes, water pipes, or hookahs (1 percent). Of the 47 million adults who currently use any tobacco products, about 9 million (19 percent) reported use of two or more tobacco products. The most common tobacco product combinations were cigarettes and e-cigarettes. By subgroups, use of any tobacco product was highest among: € People with a General Education Development (GED) certificate (42.6%). € People who were uninsured (31.0%), insured by Medicaid (28.2%), or received some other public insurance (26.8%). € Non-Hispanic American Indian/Alaska Native (29.8%), multiracial (27.4%), white (21.4%), or black adults (20.1%) € Lesbian, gay or bisexual adults (27.3%). € People with an annual household income under $35,000 (26.0%). € People living with a disability (25.0%). € Adults living in the Midwest (23.5%) or the South (20.8%). € People divorced, separated, or widowed (23.1%), or people who were single, never married, or not living with a partner (21.0%). Among adults who reported serious psychological distress, about 2 in 5 adults (40.8 percent) used any tobacco product „ one of the most marked disparities in tobacco use „ compared with about 1 in 5 (18.5 percent) of those without serious psychological distress. For more than half a century, cigarette smoking has been the leading cause of cancer mortality in the United States. Eliminating smoking in America would, over time, eliminate about one-third of all cancer deaths,Ž said NCI Director Norman E. Sharpless, M.D., The persistent disparities in adult smoking prevalence described in this report emphasize the need for further research to accelerate reductions in tobacco use among all Americans.Ž What more can be done? Full implementation of comprehensive tobacco control programs at the national, state, and local levels can accelerate progress toward reducing tobacco-related death and disease in the United States. Such strategies and interventions include CDCs Tips From Former Smokers campaign, the FDAs Every Try CountsŽ campaign, and NCIs and toll-free national quitline (1-800-QUIT-NOW). These coordinated efforts, in combination with strategies that address the diversity of tobacco products, can reduce tobacco-related disease and death in the United States. The continued drop in adult smoking rates to historic lows is encouraging and the FDA is committed to accelerating declines in smoking and shifting the trajectory of tobacco-related disease and death through our comprehensive approach to tobacco and nicotine regulation,Ž said FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, M.D. Weve taken new steps to ultimately render combustible cigarettes minimally or non-addictive and to advance a framework to encourage innovation of potentially less harmful products such as e-cigarettes for adults who still seek access to nicotine, as well as support the development of novel nicotine replacement drug therapies. At the same time were also working to protect kids from the dangers of tobacco product use, including e-cigarettes.Ž Cigarette smoking remains the leading preventable cause of death and disease in the United States, and is responsible for the overwhelming burden of death and disease from tobacco use. Cigarette smoking kills an estimated 480,000 Americans each year, and about 16 million Americans suffer from a smoking-related illness. However, no form of tobacco use is risk-free.

PAGE 19 November 12, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B9By MEGAN WASSONMAYO CLINICA wide variety of safe, effective birth control options are available, and sometimes it can be tough to decide which one is the right choice. For someone who wants to get pregnant in a few years „ long-acting reversible forms of birth control (also called contraception) are likely the best option. There are several to choose from, and none affect your ability to conceive once you decide youd like to become pregnant. Long-acting reversible contraceptives give you consistent, reliable birth control without needing to think about it regularly, as is necessary for some other options, such as birth control pills, condoms, natural family planning or contraceptive sponges. There are three basic types of long-acting reversible contraceptives: intrauterine devices or IUDs, implants and injections. All require a prescription from your health care provider. An IUD is a small device placed in the uterus by a health care professional during an of“ce visit. There is a hormone-free IUD that works by preventing sperm from fertilizing an egg. There also are IUDs that contain the hormone progesterone. They work by thinning the uterine lining, thickening cervical mucus, and preventing sperm from fertilizing an egg. Depending on the type you choose, IUDs can be left in place for three, “ve or 10 years. For typical use, IUDs have a failure rate of less than one pregnancy in 100 women per year. As soon as the IUD is removed, your natural fertility is restored. A contraceptive implant is placed just beneath the skin on the inside of your upper arm. Its a ”exible plastic rod that is about the size of a matchstick. The implant releases a low, steady dose of a hormone that prevents pregnancy by suppressing ovulation, thinning the uterine lining and thickening cervical mucus. The implant can prevent pregnancy for up to three years. After that, it needs to be removed and replaced. Implants are as effective as IUDs, with protection against pregnancy higher than 99 percent. An implant must be removed by a health care provider. You can have it taken out at any time. You return to your natural level of fertility as soon as the implant is removed. A contraceptive injection is birth control you receive in the form of a shot once every three months. The injection, which contains the hormone progestin, prevents pregnancy in a manner similar to the contraceptive implant „ by suppressing ovulation to keep your ovaries from releasing an egg, as well as thickening cervical mucus to keep sperm from reaching the egg. If you always get your injections on schedule, every 12 weeks, the reliability of this birth control method is as high as an IUD or implant. If you wait longer than 13 weeks between injections, its effectiveness goes down signi“cantly. So if you choose the injection, you must be willing to visit your health care provider every three months. You can continue receiving the injections for as long as youd like. When you decide to stop getting the injections, there can be a short delay in the return of your fertility and ovulation. However, eventually your fertility will return to normal. Each of these long-acting reversible forms of birth control has speci“c risks and bene“ts, and they arent all appropriate for every woman. Your family health history, personal medical background and individual preferences must be considered. Talk to your health care provider about the pros and cons of each, based on your situation, to help decide whats right for you.Birth control before starting family WASSONSPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNLAKE PLACID „ The Better Living Community Center of Lake Placid (BLCC) has successfully run health and wellness programs over the last 10 years in partnership with Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center Lake Placid. Plans to further its mission of promoting health in the community in 2019 include a program for anxiety and depression recovery, monthly cooking schools featuring healthy, plant-based meals and a program for the prevention and care of patients with Alzheimers Disease, according to BLCC chairman, Antonio Roa, M.D. To help raise funds for these projects, a benefit musical concert featuring internationally-known soloist, author, motivational speaker, pastor and education activist Wintley Phipps will be held Saturday, Dec. 1, at 7 p.m. at the Genesis Center, Lake Placid. Phipps had the honor of singing at the Presidential Inaugural Prayer Service of President Obama in 2009 and 2013. He performed at several other distinguished celebrations during the administrations of Presidents Carter, Reagan, G.W.H. Bush, Clinton and G.W. Bush. He was soloist at the 13th and 14th European Parliament-hosted annual European Prayer Breakfast in Brussels, Belgium and at the wedding ceremony of Diana Ross in Switzerland. Twice a Grammy Award nominee, Phipps booming bass voice has been heard on Saturday Night Live and Sunday Live, at Carnegie Hall and the Vatican, with Billy Graham Crusades, and during Oprah Winfreys coverage of the 9-11 terrorist attacks. His interpretation of Amazing Grace was viewed by 16 million people, making him one of the most watched gospel music artists on YouTube.

B10 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | November 12, 2018 By NANCY DALEYOGA FOR LIFEYoga postures awaken dimensional awarenessŽ in the mind/body as demonstrated in the picture of YMCA Yoga practitioners holding Extended Warrior Pose.Ž This pose requires discipline and concentration to learn stability and balance. Yoga postures tap into a deeper level of consciousness to execute the postures, hold and relax into them with deep breaths, as the spine lengthens and becomes more ”exible. As expressed in the smiles of these Yoga practitioners, they are challenged holding the posture correctly, demonstrating resolve.Ž Yoga is a personal practice that explores our range of motion and increases blood ”ow carrying oxygen to all the vital organs. Extended Warrior PoseŽ emphasizes weight distribution on both sides of the body through the hips/legs while remaining stable, lengthening the arms to the sky and pressing “rmly down on the center of each foot. Lets practice extended warrior poseŽ beginning with awakening the body Before moving into any posture, we awaken the bodyŽ by standing for several minutes with eyes closed in Tadasana or Mountain pose. As we stand tall with straight spine, weight equally distributed in the hips/ legs, we quiet and calm the mind. In Tadasana, we deeply breath, inhaling/ exhaling through the nose. After a few minutes, we are ready to begin a Yoga sequence. Next, we raise both arms and stretch them into the sky. It is important when lengthening the spine upwards to tuck in the pelvis and straighten the pelvic curve in the lower back, releasing tension. Then, we bend forward with legs slightly bent to avoid strain in the back of the kneecaps; then just hang. Shake the head, inhale and round the back, then exhale and release lower to the ground. We slowly rise back to center, clasp the hands together in the back and again forward bend raising clasped hands as far as possible upward. At “rst, elbows may be bent and shoulders tight that may restrict the arms from raising straight back and up, but keep practicing. Extended warrior pose: Turn the body forward and extend the right leg to the right and bend the knee keeping the knee over the ankle. Lengthen the left leg as long as possible to the left with weight on the left side of the foot. Lift the arms up into a VŽ and open them wide. Keep weight evenly distributed into both hips. Keep the spinal curve long by tucking in the pelvis, tightening the hips. Lengthen the core upwards as you balance and gain stability. Keep inhaling/exhaling deeply and hold the pose for two minute before repeating it on the other side. With practice, the posture will gradually improve and the spine will lengthen to release tension, stress and increase relaxation. After holding the pose and repeating again on each side, come back to center in Tadasana. Yoga postures are a positive way to let go of mind and body and divert attention away from mental stress. Yoga is about a healthy practice to gain the most bene“ts.

Whole grains are grains that include the entire grain kernel „ they havent had their bran and germ removed by re“ning. Whole-grain foods are a rich source of healthy nutrients, including “ber, potassium, magnesium, folate, iron and selenium. Eating more whole-grain foods offers many health bene“ts that can work together to help reduce your risk of high blood pressure by: € Aiding in weight control, since whole-grain foods can make you feel full longer. € Increasing your intake of potassium, which is linked to lower blood pressure. € Decreasing your risk of insulin resistance. € Reducing damage to your blood vessels. € If you already have high blood pressure, eating more whole-grain foods might help lower your blood pressure. The Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet and the Mediterranean diet both recommend including whole grains as part of a healthy diet. According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, as part of an overall healthy diet, adults should eat at least 85 grams of whole-grain foods a day „ thats about 3 ounces, or the equivalent of three slices of whole-wheat bread.Whole grain foods may lower blood pressure AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATIONWhole grain foods may help you lower your blood pressure.

By GILLIAN FLACCUS, PAUL ELIAS and ANDREW SELSKYASSOCIATED PRESSPARADISE, Calif. „ With hearses standing by, crews stepped up the search for bodies in the smoking ruins of Paradise „ and relatives desperately looked for more than 100 missing loved ones „ as wild“ res raged Sunday on both ends of the state. The statewide death toll stood at 25 and appeared certain to rise. At least “ ve search teams were working in Paradise „ a town of 27,000 that was largely incinerated on Thursday „ and in surrounding Northern California communities. Authorities called in a mobile DNA lab and anthropologists to help identify victims of the most destructive wild“ re in California history. By early afternoon, one of the two black hearses stationed in Paradise had picked up another set of remains. People looking for friends or relatives called evacuation centers, hospitals, police and the coroners of“ ce. Sol Bechtold drove from shelter to shelter looking for his mother, Joanne Caddy, a 75-year-old widow whose house burned down along with the rest of her neighborhood in Magalia, just north of Paradise. She lived alone and did not drive. Bechtold posted a ” yer on social media, pinned it to bulletin boards at shelters and showed her picture around to evacuees, asking if anyone recognized her. He ran across a few of Caddys neighbors, but they hadnt seen her. As he drove through the smoke and haze to yet another shelter, he said, Im also under a dark emotional cloud. Your mothers somewhere and you dont know where shes at. You dont know if shes safe.Ž Of“ cials and relatives held out hope that many of those unaccounted for were safe and simply had no cellphones or other ways to contact loved ones.

At a weekend commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, the president who proudly declares himself a nationalistŽ stood apart, even on a continent where his brand of populism is on the rise. He began his visit with a tweet slamming the French presidents call for a European defense force, arrived at events alone and spent much of his trip out of sight in the American ambassadors residence in central Paris. On Sunday, he listened as he was lectured on the dangers of nationalist isolation, and then he headed home just as the inaugural Paris Peace Summit was getting under way. The visit made clear that, nearly two years after taking of“ ce, Trump has dramatically upended decades of American foreign policy posture, shaking allies. That includes French President Emmanuel Macron, who on Sunday warned that the ancient demonsŽ that caused World War I and millions of deaths were once again making headway. Macron, who has been urging a re-embrace of multinational organizations and cooperation that have been shunned by Trump, delivered a barely-veiled rebuke of Trumpism at the By JOSEF FEDERMAN and FARES AKRAMASSOCIATED PRESSJERUSALEM „ A fresh wave of “ ghting erupted between Israeli forces and Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip on Sunday, leaving at least six Palestinians dead just as Israel and Hamas had appeared to be making progress toward ratcheting down months of border violence. It was not immediately clear what set off the sudden, late-night burst of violence. In a statement, Hamas armed wing, the Qassam Brigades, said Israeli undercover forces in a civilian vehicle in“ ltrated 2 miles into Gaza and fatally shot one of its commanders. It said militants discovered the car and chased it down, prompting Israeli airstrikes that killed a number of people.Ž The clashes were still going on, it said. The Israeli military reported an exchange of “ reŽ had taken place during operational activity in Gaza and said that all IDF soldiers back in Israel.Ž It did not elaborate. The Palestinian Health Ministry said six people, including at least “ ve militants, were killed and seven others wounded. In Israel, the military said it had intercepted two rockets “ red from Gaza as air raid sirens continued to sound. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, on an of“ cial visit to France, announced he was rushing back to Israel to deal with the crisis. Sundays development shattered what appeared to be a turning point after months of bloodshed along the Israel-Gaza border, with weekly Hamas-led protests drawing thousands to the perimeter fence with Israel. Over 170 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli “ re in the border protests, in which Palestinians throw rocks, burning tires and grenades toward Israeli troops. Last week, Israel allowed Qatar to deliver $15 million in aid to Gazas cash-strapped Hamas rulers. Hamas responded by lowering the intensity of Fridays border protest.

Page 2 E/N/C The Sun | Monday, November 12, 2018By MARCO UGARTE and YESICA FISCHASSOCIATED PRESSQUERETARO, Mexico „ Local Mexican officials were once again Sunday helping thousands of Central American migrants find rides on the next leg of their journey toward the U.S. border. At a toll plaza to the west of the central Mexico city of Queretaro, where the group spent Saturday night, police helped find trucks to take migrants and prevented them from trying to stop drivers themselves. The government of Queretaro said via Twitter that 6,531 migrants had moved through the state between Friday and Saturday. It said that 5,771 of those were departing Sunday morning after staying in three shelters it had prepared, the largest of which was a soccer stadium in the state capital. Those numbers appeared even higher than counts made by officials when the group was in Mexico City for several days, raising the possibility that other migrants have caught up to the main caravan. The migrants began walking before dawn Sunday for Irapuato about 62 miles to the west after crossing into Guanajuato state, where local authorities also assisted them. A day earlier a similar scene played out as the caravan exited Mexico City. Dedicated metro trains moved migrants across the capital before dawn and at a toll plaza north of the city they formed orderly lines to wait for their turn to climb aboard passing 18-wheelers that were willing to help them cover the 124 miles to Queretaro. Emilson Manuel Figueroa managed a seat on the back of a flatbed truck packed with other migrants. I think that in my country I will get old and will never have something to live on,Ž said the 23-year-old cab driver from Honduras. The migrants appear to be on a path to Tijuana across the border from San Diego, which is still some 1,600 miles away. The caravan became a campaign issue in U.S. midterm elections and U.S. President Donald Trump has ordered the deployment of over 5,000 military troops to the border to fend off the migrants. Trump has also insinuated without proof that there are criminals or even terrorists in the group. Many migrants say they are fleeing rampant poverty, gang violence and political instability primarily in the Central American countries of Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua, and they have now been on the road for weeks. Mexico has offered refuge, asylum or work visas to the migrants, and its government said 2,697 temporary visas had been issued to individuals and families to cover them while they wait for the 45-day application process for a more permanent status. But most vowed to continue to the United States. (In the U.S.) we can earn more and give something to our family, but there (in Honduras) even when we want to give something to our children, we cant because the little we earn its just for food, to pay the house and the light, nothing else,Ž said Nubia Morazan, 28, of Honduras as she prepared to set out Sunday with her husband and two children.Migrant caravan heads to central Mexican city of Irapuato AP PHOTOCentral American migrants rest in a temporary shelter in Queretaro, Mexico, Saturday, Nov. 10. Thousands of Central American migrants were back on the move toward the U.S. border Saturday, after dedicated Mexico City metro trains whisked them to the outskirts of the capital and drivers began oering rides north.

By WAI-BOR WONG and YANAN WANGASSOCIATED PRESSSHANGHAI „ Online shoppers in China have shattered last years record by making $30.8 billion in sales on the countrys annual buying frenzy Sunday, as the tradition marked its 10th year. The spending binge has for years eclipsed Cyber Monday in the U.S. for online purchases made on a single day. This years tally was 27 percent higher than a year ago. It breaks from gloomy forecasts about the worlds second-largest economy, which is struggling with a tariff war with the U.S., a stock market slump and slowing overall growth. Known as Singles Day, the clamor for deals and discounts was heralded with characteristic fanfare by Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, which has turned an unof“cial holiday for people without romantic partners into a yearly windfall for digital retailers. A massive screen at Alibabas gala in Shanghai showed the surging sales numbers in real time. Just before 4 p.m. Sunday, the sales reached 168.2 billion yuan ($24.2 billion) „ surpassing the total purchases from last years Singles Day, according to “gures posted online by Alibaba Group. At the end of the 24-hour spree, Alibaba reported sales totaled up to 213.5 billion yuan ($30.8 billion). Alibaba Group CEO Daniel Zhang said the results re”ected the strength and rise of Chinas consumption economy.Ž Singles Day began as a spoof event celebrated by unattached Chinese university students in the 1990s. In Chinese, its called Double 11,Ž after the numbers in the month and date. The improvised holiday was co-opted by e-retailers in 2009 and transformed into Chinas version of Cyber Monday, as the Monday after Thanksgiving is known. Nearly $6.6 billion in sales were made on Cyber Monday in 2017, up about 17 percent from the previous year, according to Adobe Analytics. Ren Xiaotong, a 27-year-old accountant in Beijing, said she suspected online stores jacked up their prices in the lead-up to Singles Day so they could declare that items were discounted. But in the end, her skepticism didnt stop her from partaking. Singles Day is different now „ it has more tricks than before,Ž Ren said. You only save a few dozens of yuan at the end. That being said, I still bought a pair of shoes, simply to celebrate the festival.Ž The Twitter-like Weibo platform was blanketed with Singles Day-related posts on Sunday, from users proudly proclaiming that they had resisted the shopping urge this year to those who cheerfully listed an array of mundane purchases. Alibaba founder Jack Ma, who will step down as chairman in less than a year, attended the start of the gala in Shanghai and appeared in a video message in which he wrapped up live hair crabs, a popular online purchase. Singles Day is not a day of discounts, but rather a day of gratitude,Ž Ma said in the video. Its when retailers use the best products and best prices to show their gratitude to our consumers.Ž Chinese e-commerce platforms have come under “re in the past for peddling low-quality and counterfeit items. Hong Tao, an economics professor at Beijing Technology and Business University, said Singles Day encourages shoppers to prioritize cheap prices over high quality, causing them to purchase items they dont need. People are swept up in the festivities,Ž Hong said in a phone interview. This burst of consumption, con“ned to just one day, can be exhausting for both buyers and sellers.Ž The occasion also has big environmental implications. While both Alibaba and competitor have pledged to use biodegradable packaging to cut down on waste, research conducted this month by Greenpeace East Asia said many plastics marked biodegradableŽ and used by Chinese e-retailers can break down only under high temperatures in facilities that are limited in number across the country. Greenpeace estimated that by 2020, biodegradableŽ packaging could produce roughly 721 truckloads of trash in China every day.Chinas annual shopping frenzy shatters records again AP PHOTO Workers countdown to the start of Alibabas 11.11 Global Shopping Festival held in Shanghai, China, Saturday, Nov. 10.

The Sun | Monday, November 12, 2018 E/N/C Page 3By IVAN MORENOASSOCIATED PRESSMILWAUKEE „ Pabst Brewing Company and MillerCoors are going to trial, with hipster favorite Pabst contending that MillerCoors wants to put it out of business by ending a longstanding partnership through which it brews Pabsts beers. The case has high stakes for Pabst, whose lawyers argue that the companys very existence relies on the partnership with Chicago-based MillerCoors, which produces, packages and ships nearly all its products, which include Pabst Blue Ribbon, Old Milwaukee, Natty Boh and Lone Star. MillerCoors, meanwhile, says its not obligated to continue brewing for Pabst and that Pabst doesnt want to pay enough to justify doing so. The trial in Milwaukee County Circuit Court begins Monday and is scheduled through Nov. 30. Pabsts attorneys have said in court documents and hearings that MillerCoors LLC is lying about its brewing capacity to break away from Pabst and capture its share of the cheap beer market by disrupting Pabsts ability to compete. At a March hearing in which MillerCoors tried to have the lawsuit dismissed, Pabst attorney Adam Paris said stunning documentsŽ obtained from MillerCoors show that it went as far as hiring a consultant to “gure out ways to get rid of us.Ž MillerCoors has called that a mischaracterization of the consultants work. The 1999 agreement between MillerCoors and Pabst, which was founded in Milwaukee in 1844 but is now headquartered in Los Angeles, expires in 2020 but provides for two possible “veyear extensions. The companies dispute how the extensions should be negotiated: MillerCoors argues that it has sole discretion to determine whether it can continue brewing for Pabst, whereas Pabst says the companies must work in good faithŽ to “nd a solution if Pabst wants to extend the agreement but MillerCoors lacks the capacity. Pabst needs 4 million to 4.5 million barrels brewed annually and claims MillerCoors is its only option. It is seeking more than $400 million in damages and for MillerCoors to be ordered to honor its contract. During 2015 negotiations about extending the contract, MillerCoors announced it would close its brewing facility in Eden, North Carolina, and that it eventually might have to shutter another facility in Irwindale, California. Pabst contends that MillerCoors refused to provide any information to substantiate its claim that it would no longer have the capacity to continue brewing Pabsts beers, and that it wouldnt consider leasing the Eden facility and would only sell it for an astronomicalŽ price. Pabst says MillerCoors wouldnt agree to an extension unless Pabst paid $45 per barrel „ a commercially devastating, near-triple price increaseŽ from what it pays now. At the March hearing, Paris said MillerCoors knew Pabst couldnt accept that proposal because it would have bankrupted us three times over.Ž In court “lings, MillersCoors said Pabsts proposals to keep the Eden facility open were commercially unreasonableŽ and that Pabst sought a windfall through litigationŽ instead of offering to pay enough to keep a facility open. It also said the facilitys closing was to ensure the longer-term sustainabilityŽ of MillerCoors because thousands of new brewers have entered the market over the past decade. MillerCoors and Anheuser-Busch, which have the biggest U.S. market share at 24.8 percent and 41.6 percent, respectively, have been losing business to smaller independent brewers, imports, and wine and spirits in recent years, according to the Brewers Association. The beer market has shifted and beer lovers are increasingly demanding more variety, fuller-”avor, and local products from small and independent producers,Ž said Bart Watson, the Brewers Associations chief economist. Overall U.S. beer sales have declined, with shipments down from 213.1 million barrels in 2008 to 204.2 million in 2017, according to the Brewers Association. Pabst depends on MillerCoors because the only other U.S. brewer with capacity to make its products is AnheuserBusch, which doesnt do contract brewing, Paris said. It really is an existential issue for Pabst because it has no real alternatives,Ž Paris said at the March hearing. Paris said the report from the consultant MillerCoors hired in 2013 proves the company never intended to act in good faith. Pabsts attorneys say the report had sections focused on how to eliminate Pabst altogetherŽ and noted that MillerCoors would need to close two breweries to be sure they dont have excess capacity for contract manufacturing.Ž MillerCoors attorney, Eric Van Vugt, said in court that the company didnt rely on the consultants report when it decided to close Eden or when it has contemplated closing the Irwindale brewery. If we keep Irwindale open, yes, we can supply their beer,Ž Van Vugt said. No one disputes that. Thats the only factor that we need to look at.ŽPabst says MillerCoors is trying to put it out of business AP PHOTO Cases of Pabst Blue Ribbon and Coors Light are stacked next to each other in a Milwaukee liquor store. Pabst Brewing Company and MillerCoors are heading to trial starting Monday, Nov. 12, to settle a contract dispute in which Pabst accuses the brewing giant of trying to undermine its competitor by breaking a contract to make their products. By PATRICK WHITTLEASSOCIATED PRESSPORTLAND, Maine „ Valuable species of shell“sh have become harder to “nd on the East Coast because of degraded habitat caused by a warming environment, according to a pair of scientists that sought to “nd out whether environmental factors or over“shing was the source of the decline. The scientists reached the conclusion in studying the decline in the harvest of four commercially important species of shell“sh in coastal areas from Maine to North Carolina „ eastern oysters, northern quahogs, softshell clams and northern bay scallops. They reported that their “ndings came down squarely on the side of a warming ocean environment and a changing climate, and not excessive harvest by “shermen. One of the ways warming has negatively impacted shell“sh is by making them more susceptible to predators, said the lead author of the study, Clyde MacKenzie, a shell“sh researcher for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration who is based in Sandy Hook, New Jersey. Their predation rate is faster in the warmer waters. They begin to prey earlier, and they prey longer into the fall,Ž MacKenzie said. These stocks have gone down.Ž MacKenzies “ndings, the product of a collaboration with Mitchell Tarnowski, a shell“sh biologist with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, appeared recently in the journal Marine Fisheries Review. The “ndings have implications for consumers of shell“sh, because a declining domestic harvest means the prices of shell“sh such as oysters and clams could rise, or the U.S. could become more dependent on foreign sources. The scientists observed that the harvest of eastern oysters from Connecticut to Virginia fell from around 600,000 bushels in 1960 to less than 100,000 in 2005. The harvest of the four species declined from 1980 to 2010 after enjoying years of stability from 1950 to 1980, they found. The scientists reported that a positive shift in the North Atlantic Oscillation led to the degradation of shell“sh habitat. The oscillation is an irregular ”uctuation of atmospheric pressure that impacts weather and climate, which in turn affects things like reproduction and food availability for shell“sh. The study mirrors what Maine clam harvesters are seeing on the states tidal ”ats, said Chad Cof“n, a clammer and the president of the Maine Clammers Association. Maines harvest of softshell clams „ the clams used to make fried clams and clam chowder „ dwindled to its lowest point since 1930 last year. It will take adopting new strategies, such as shell“sh farming, for the “sheries to survive, Cof“n said. Clammers arent the reason theres no clams,Ž he said. We need to adapt, we need to focus our efforts on adapting to the environment we have.Ž Some near-shore shell“sh harvests in the U.S. remain consistently productive, such as the Maine sea scallop “shery, which takes place in bays and coastal areas in the winter. The states scallop “shery bottomed out at about 33,000 pounds in 2005, but has climbed in recent years, and its 2017 total of almost 800,000 pounds was the most since 1997. Many in Maine attribute the health of the “shery to conservative management, said Alex Todd, a scallop “sherman who also works the waters off Massachusetts. Up and down the coast, there have been good years recently compared to 10 or 15 years ago,Ž he said. But the scientists “ndings track with others who have studied the impact of warming waters on shell“sh, such as Brian Beal, a professor of marine ecology at the University of Maine at Machias. Beal, who was not involved in the study, has said rising seawater temperature could spell doom and gloom for the clamming industry and probably for other industries as well.Ž Thats especially true of valuable species that are important food items, like clams and mussels, he said. None of this can be attributed to over“shing, a term that is used willy-nilly and applied erroneously to these declines in commercially important shell“sh,Ž Beal said.Warming hurting shellfish, aiding predators, ruining habitat AP PHOTO A friends basket of clams sit in the water as Mike Suprin, of Rollinsford, New Hampshire, calls it a day after lling his basket with softshell clams at Cape Porpoise in Kennebunkport, Maine. A study by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration scientists released in 2018 concluded that valuable species of shellsh, including softshell clams, have become harder to nd on the East Coast because of degraded habitats caused by a warming environment. By DAVID BOROFFNEW YORK DAILY NEWSFormer journalist Sam Donaldson says he has been asked to prepare an af“davit to support CNNs case after the Trump White House banned reporter Jim Acosta earlier this week. Acosta was sanctioned Wednesday after a testy exchange with President Donald Trump during a lengthy news conference. The White House punished Acosta for placing his hands on a young womanŽ after he declined to give up the microphone, but witnesses and video of the incident do not appear to support such a claim. Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said she was suspending Acostas hard pass, which allowed him to enter the White House without supervision. First Amendment legal expert Floyd Abrams told CNNs Brian Stelter on Sunday that he believes the cable network should sue, and that its a really strong lawsuit.Ž I can understand CNN being reluctant to sue because the president keeps saying CNN is the enemy of me, and CNN might have reluctance to have a lawsuit titled CNN vs. Donald Trump,Ž Abrams told Stelters Reliable SourcesŽ show. That said, yes, I think they should sue.Ž CNN said in a statement that no decisions have been madeŽ on a lawsuit. We have reached out to the White House and gotten no response,Ž a CNN spokesperson said. However, the longtime ABC reporter Donaldson told Stelter that he has been asked to give an af“davit in connection with the incident, which he called dangerous for the press as a whole.Ž This is going to happen again,Ž Abrams told Stelter. Its likely to happen again. So whether its CNN suing or the next company suing, someone is going to have to bring a lawsuit. And whoever does is going to win unless theres some sort of reason.Ž The White House was accused of posting a doctored tape of the incident, but Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said Sunday that the recording was sped up,Ž not altered.Ž They do it all the time in sports to see if theres actually a “rst down or touchdown,Ž she told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday.Ž So, Im going to have to disagree with, I think, the overwrought description of this video being doctored as if we put somebody elses arm in there.Ž She denied the allegation that Acostas credential was pulled because he did un”attering stories about the White House. Chris, if what you just described were the standard, we would have cleaned out the entire building two years ago,Ž she said.Sam Donaldson asked to prepare affidavit in CNNs case over Jim Acosta banNATIONAL NEWS

The choice is ours. weekends centerpiece event: A gathering of dozens of leaders at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the base of the Arc de Triomphe to mark the passage of a century since the guns fell silent in a global war that killed millions. Bells tolled across Europes Western Front and “ghter jets passed overhead to mark the exact moment the devastating war came to a close. With Trump and other leaders looking on, Macron took on the rising tide of populism in the United States and Europe and urged leaders not to turn their backs by turning inward. Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism: Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism,Ž Macron said, adding that, when nations put their interests “rst and decide who cares about the othersŽ they erase the most precious thing a nation can have... Its moral values.Ž After Trump was gone, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who recently announced that she will not be seeking re-election, made an impassioned plea for global cooperation at the peace forum, saying World War I had made clear what disastrous consequences a lack of compromise in politics and diplomacy can have.Ž Trump, who has made clear that he has limited patience for broad, multilateral agreements, sat mostly stone-faced as he listened to Macron, who sees himself as Europes foil to the rising nationalist sentiment, which has taken hold in Hungary and Poland among other countries. Trump did engage with his fellow leaders, attending a group welcome dinner hosted by Macron at the Muse dOrsay on Saturday night and a lunch on Sunday. He also spent time with Macron on Saturday, when the two stressed their shared desire for more burden-sharing during a quick availability with reporters. But Trump was terse during some of his private conversations with world leaders, according to people with direct knowledge of his visit. One of the people described the president as grumpy.Ž They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss private conversations. The symbolism during Trumps visit couldnt have been more stark. Trump was missing from one of the weekends most powerful images: A line of world leaders, walking shoulder to-shoulder in a somber, rain-soaked procession as the bells marking the exact moment that “ghting ended „ 11 a.m. on Nov. 11, 1918 „ “nished tolling. The president and “rst lady Melania Trump had traveled to the commemoration separately „ White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders cited security protocols „ from the other dignitaries, who had traveled together by bus from the lyse Palace. As Trumps motorcade was making its solo trip down the grand Champslyses, which was closed to traf“c, at least one topless woman breached tight security, running into the street and shouting fake peace makerŽ as the cars passed. She had slogans, including the words FakeŽ and Peace,Ž written on her chest. Police tackled the woman and the motorcade continued uninterrupted. The feminist activist group Femen later claimed responsibility. Also traveling on his own was Russian President Vladimir Putin, who shook Trumps hand, ”ashed him a thumbs-up sign and patted Trumps arm as he arrived. Trump responded with a wide smile. National Security Adviser John Bolton had said at one point that Putin and Trump would meet in Paris, but they will instead hold a formal sit-down later this month at a world leaders summit in Buenos Aires. A Kremlin of“cial said later that U.S. and Russian of“cials decided to drop plans for the Paris meeting after French of“cials objected. Trump, who ran on an America FirstŽ platform, has jarred European allies with his actions. He has slapped tariffs on the European Union, pulled the U.S. out of the landmark Paris Climate Accord and the Iran nuclear deal and suggested he might be willing to pull the U.S. out of NATO if member counties dont signi“cantly boost their defense spending. Trumps eagerness to get along with the Russian leader „ in spite of Russias meddling in the 2016 election and numerous other aggressive moves in recent years „ has alarmed those who view Russia as a growing threat. Trump has also repeatedly branded himself a nationalist,Ž despite criticism from some that the term has negative connotations. At a news conference last week, Trump defended his use of the phrase. You know what the word is? I love our country,Ž he said, adding: You have nationalists. You have globalists. I also love the world and I dont mind helping the world, but we have to straighten out our country “rst. We have a lot of problems.Ž But Trump did not broach the divide as he paid tribute Sunday to U.S. and allied soldiers killed in World War I during a horrible, horrible warŽ that marked Americas emergence as a world power. We are gathered together at this hallowed resting place to pay tribute to the brave Americans who gave their last breath in that mighty struggle,Ž Trump said at the Suresnes American Cemetery and Memorial in the suburbs of Paris, where more than 1,500 Americans who died in the war are buried. It is our duty to preserve the civilization they defended and to protect the peace they so nobly gave their lives to secure one century ago,Ž he said after spending a moment, standing alone amid the cemeterys white crosses, holding a black umbrella. The Veterans Day speech came a day after Trump was criticized for failing to visit a different American cemetery about 60 miles outside of Paris on Saturday because rain grounded the helicopter he had planned to take. A handful of senior administration of“cials, including White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, went in the presidents place, while Trump remained behind at the ambassadors residence with no alternate schedule for hours. Trump delivered the speech as other leaders were gathered for the inaugural Paris Peace Forum, which aims to revive collective governance and international cooperation to tackle global challenges. Afterward he headed back to Washington.TRUMPFROM PAGE 1 Netanyahu had defended his decision to allow the transfer of the Qatari money, rejecting criticism that the move had strengthened the Islamic militant group. Netanyahu told reporters that it was the right stepŽ at the moment and that he was committed to restoring quiet along the Israel-Gaza frontier and preventing a humanitarian crisis in the coastal Palestinian territory. Every action, without exception, has a price,Ž he said. If you cant handle the price you cannot lead. And I can handle the price.Ž Israeli critics, including members of Netanyahus hardline coalition, accused him of capitulating to violence and of granting relief to the embattled Hamas group. The internationally backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, whose forces lost control of Gaza to Hamas in 2007, angrily accused the U.S. and Israel of being involved in a conspiracyŽ to permanently sever Gaza from the West Bank. He promised to take unspeci“ed measures against his Hamas rivals in the coming days. Hamas leaders in Gaza have described the arrival of the $15 million, delivered last week in three suitcases by a Qatari diplomat, as their “rst major gain of more than seven months of weekly protests along the perimeter fence. Hamas has been leading the protests since March 30 in a bid to ease a crippling IsraeliEgyptian blockade that was imposed in 2007 in order to weaken the militant group. The blockade has led to over 50 percent unemployment and chronic power outages, and prevents most Gazans from being able to leave the tiny territory. Israel says it is defending its border against militant in“ltrations, but its army has come under international criticism because of the large number of unarmed protesters who have been shot. With Hamas threatening to intensify the protests and international of“cials warning of a looming humanitarian crisis, Netanyahu on Thursday allowed the cash into Gaza. It is the “rst installment of $90 million that Qatar has pledged to cover the salaries of thousands of unpaid Hamas employees for six months. Israeli opposition “gures lambasted Netanyahu for appearing to cave in to violence. Army Radio played decade-old sound clips of Netanyahu, from when he was the opposition leader, threatening tough action against Hamas and criticizing his predecessor for being too soft. Even his erstwhile allies attacked him for indirectly doing business with a militant group that has fought three wars against Israel and is sworn to Israels destruction. Everyone knows where that money is going to go ultimately,Ž said Netanyahus agriculture minister, Uri Ariel. But in comments to reporters before traveling to Paris, Netanyahu said it was a question of alternatives.Ž He said the step was coordinated with security of“cials to restore quiet for Israeli citizens living near the Gaza border and to avert a humanitarian crisis. Later, at a press conference in Paris, when asked about his longer-term vision for Gaza, Netanyahu said there could be no political resolution as long as Hamas is in power.GAZAFROM PAGE 1from the Trump administration.

The worst of the blazes was in Northern California, where the number of people killed in that “re alone, at least 23, made it the third-deadliest on record in the state. Two people were also found dead in a wild“re in Southern California, where ”ames tore through Malibu mansions and working-class Los Angeles suburbs alike. The two severely burned bodies were discovered in a driveway in celebrity-studded Malibu, where residents forced from their homes included Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian West and Martin Sheen. Actor Gerard Butler said on Instagram that his Malibu home was half-gone,Ž and a publicist for Camille Grammer Meyer said the Real Housewives of Beverly HillsŽ star lost her home in the seaside enclave. Flames also besieged Thousand Oaks, the Southern California city in mourning over the massacre of 12 people in a shooting rampage at a country music bar Wednesday night. In Northern California, Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said the county consulted anthropologists from California State University at Chico because, in some cases, investigators have been able to recover only bones and bone fragments. The devastation was so complete in some neighborhoods that its very dif“cult to determine whether or not there may be human remains there,Ž Honea said. Authorities were also bringing in a DNA lab and encouraged people with missing relatives to submit samples to aid in identifying the dead after the blaze destroyed more than 6,700 buildings, nearly all of them homes. Fire“ghters gained modest ground overnight against the blaze, which grew slightly to 170 square miles from the day before but was 25 percent contained, up from 20 percent, according to the state “re agency, Cal Fire. But Cal Fire spokesman Bill Murphy warned that gusty winds predicted into Monday morning could spark explosive “re behavior.Ž About 300,000 people statewide were under evacuation orders, most of them in Southern California. Fire of“cials said Sunday morning that the larger of that regions two “res, the one that hit Malibu, grew to 130 square miles and was 10 percent contained. But the strong, dry Santa Ana winds that blow from the interior toward the coast returned after a one-day lull, fanning the ”ames. The count of lost structures in both Southern California “res climbed to nearly 180, authorities said. The large mobile home community of Seminole Springs, in the rugged Santa Monica Mountains north of Malibu, appeared devastated. Browns request for a major-disaster declaration from Trump would make victims eligible for crisis counseling, housing and unemployment help, and legal aid. Drought, warmer weather attributed to climate change, and the building of homes deeper into forests have led to longer and more destructive wild“re seasons in California. While California of“cially emerged from a 5-year drought last year, much of the northern two-thirds of the state is abnormally dry. Things are not the way they were 10 years ago. ... The rate of spread is exponentially more than it used to be,Ž said Ventura County Fire Chief Mark Lorenzen, urging residents to evacuate rather than stay behind to try to defend their homes.FIREFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOAnthropology students observe as human remains are r ecovered from a burned-out home at the Camp Fire, Sunday, in Paradise, Calif.

The Sun | Monday, November 12, 2018 E/N/C Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: I recently had surgery, and my blood pressure was monitored with a catheter. The readings were higher by 30 to 40 points compared with cu measurements taken at the same time. They were having a hard time getting the catheter readings down to 170. I am wondering which readings are to be used under blood pressure guidelines. „ R.R. ANSWER: A catheter (that's j ust a name for a tube inserted in the body) measures blood pressure directly. When people are in the operating room or in the intensive care unit, a catheter often is placed in the artery to give instant, direct measurements of the blood pressure. Several studies have shown that these are more accurate than noninvasive blood pressure measurements, especially in people with very low blood pressure. Cu measurements can be higher than catheter measurements in people who have sti blood vessels with calcium in them. These do not compress properly under the pressure of a cu, so blood will still go through even with immensely high cu pressures. In those people, only a catheter is accurate. Unfortunately, even arterial catheters sometimes can be inaccurate. Bubbles in the system, blood clotting and kinks in the catheter all can lead to abnormal results. However, a dierence of 30 to 40 points higher on a catheter than a cu is beyond my experience. I suspect a technical error, either in the measurement via arterial catheter or (more likely) via the cu. Errors in measuring the blood pressure by cu can come from several mistakes. The size of the cu needs to be appropriate for the arm: Both too small and too large cus will be inaccurate. The cu should be at the level of the heart, and the arm relaxed. The cu must be deated at a precise rate, often slower than I see done. Still, an error of 30 to 40 points is surprisingly large. Blood pressure guidelines are based entirely on cu measurements, but there usually is not a big dierence between them and arterial catheter readings. DEAR DR. ROACH: I was diagnosed with osteoma cutis. Any information on this condition would be appreciated. I have been told it is bone fragments that grow beneath the skin. It is my face that is aected. „ R.I. ANSWER: Osteoma cutis is a rare condition (I've never seen a case) where pieces of bone form in the skin. They can be minute to moderately sized, and the condition often is seen in combination with a hereditary syndrome, such as Albright's hereditary osteodystrophy or Gardner syndrome (with colon polyps). The face seems to be a common site of involvement, possibly in association with acne, sunburn or a cosmetic procedure like dermabrasion. It is surprising to me that the fragments under the skin are indeed bone, conrmed by microscopic evaluation, rather than calcications, which happen in many other conditions. Fortunately, abnormal bone growth leading to bone cancer has not been reported with this condition. Osteoma cutis usually is treated surgically to make the diagnosis (although the diagnosis also can be made by X-ray) or for painful lesions. Successful treatment with laser also has been reported.DEAR ABBY: I had bariatric surgery (gastric sleeve) ve months ago. I left my previous job because the way I was treated by my employer and co-workers changed drastically after my procedure. I am starting a new job soon and do not want to tell my new employer or coworkers that I have had this operation. People always treat you dierently once they know. I don't know anyone at the new job, and I prefer to keep this part of my life private. My boyfriend thinks I should tell at least HR, in case any medical issues arise while at work because then they would be able to inform medical personnel. I don't think they need to know. What do you think, Abby? „ Treated Dierently DEAR TREATED DIFFERENTLY: Your medical history is your own business. After ve months you should have healed from your surgery. I'm not sure what kind of complications your boyfriend is worried about, but if you experience any, the time to report it to HR will be when they occur. DEAR ABBY: Our 9-year-old son makes perfect grades in school. His friends all have cellphones, and I believe he should get one also. My husband disagrees and thinks he should be a teenager rst and learn more responsibility. With times changing so quickly and kids getting phones at 6 and 7 years old, am I wrong or is my husband old-fashioned in his approach? „ OldFashioned In The South DEAR OLDFASHIONED: Parents teach their children to be responsible by placing some responsibility on their shoulders. In the current landscape, it's a good idea for a child to have the ability to communicate with a parent in case of an emergency. You and your husband could give your son a ip phone so he can do that if necessary. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is about Social Security. „ Heloise "Dear Heloise: Recently, on the news, I heard a politician refer to Social Security as an 'entitlement program.' I nd this annoying because it sounds as if the government is being 'generous' in giving back the money I and others worked so hard for to ensure we had retirement income. Now, there's talk of reducing Social Security and even Medicare, which doesn't cover enough as it is right now. "For many Americans, Social Security does not keep up with the rising cost of food, utilities, medical care and housing, but at least it's better than nothing. However, 'nothing' is what I worry the government wants to give retired Americans. "Perhaps that's why so many people are working well beyond retirement age." „ Don K., Crown Point, Ind.Arterial blood pressure readings should be close to cu New employee strives to keep gastric surgery secret Reducing Social SecurityHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby


Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Monday, November 12, 2018 ARIES (March 21-April 19). Somewhere along this timeline, youre going to decide to stop forcing yourself to do other peoples version of fun and stick to the version thats all your own. Why not now? TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When hearts break, they dont heal all at once. In William Shakespeares Othello,Ž Iago says, How poor are they that have not patience! What wound did ever heal but by degrees?Ž You may still feel it. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your life ows best when you recognize what you need and you give yourself those essentials plus a pinch more for luck. But no more than a pinch! Because going too far past the essentials would set you back or get you stuck. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Setting yourself up to succeed will involve recognizing what and how much you can do and seeking help for the tasks that are likely to go beyond those limits. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Youll step into a teaching position today. The education will go beyond you when you choose your pupils well. Who is likely to pay it forward? Who with ties to the group needs the information most? VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The one you think of as a hero didnt aim for the role but landed there quite by accident. Having much preferred an easier, more ordinary route, this person found that life had other plans. You, too, will rise to the occasion when the time comes. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Physical, mental and emotional self-care is rooted in many practices (e.g., eating your vegetables, exercising, facing your fears) that unfortunately dont seem like fun at the outset but are nurturing of your best self. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When the situation calls for small talk, theres no getting out of it, so you might as well use it for the opportunity it is. All conversation is a kind of brochure that shows people who you are and what you can do. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Part of doing the right thing is doing it at the right time. Arguably, part of what makes it the right thing is that its right in a certain moment. If you took the action too far out of context, it would no longer hold such virtue. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Ever heard of compassion fatigueŽ? Its the sort of burnout that comes to those who care for and help everyone but themselves, to the extent that they become undernourished at all levels. Dont let it happen. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you are to devote yourself entirely to your challenge, youll need to put on blinders of a sort, to keep yourself from looking back or sideways. There is only one goal, and it is ahead. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Even in the closest of families, things get tricky around money. Its best avoided today. This Greek proverb will steer you well: Eat and drink with your relatives; do business with strangers.Ž TODAYS BIRTHDAY (Nov. 12). Welcome to your year of exceptional timing. In love, games and social fun, your impulse will auspiciously align with opportunity. More highlights this solar return: Youll accomplish something you didnt think you could. An event will go down in your personal history. And there will be a windfall to help you meet a goal. Pisces and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 40, 21, 10 and 30.

Everything is ampli“ed tenfold win or lose. The “rst playoff game I attended was Game 6 of the 201516 NHL Eastern Conference Finals with the Tampa Bay Lightning trying to close out the Pittsburgh Penguins without Steven Stamkos. My “ance Taylor is a huge Lightning fan and we planned to watch the game outside Amalie Arena on a screen they project onto the adjacent parking garage. About 10 minutes before the game we said screw it and found standing room only tickets to see it live. The atmosphere was electric and far louder than any game I had attended prior. Taylor wasnt as impressed considering she got to watch the Stanley Cup run a few years prior. But I was locked in. That was until the Lightning defense took a nap and the Pens took over to win 5-2 and force the best two words in sports: game sevenŽ. Even so, the crowd stayed engaged until the end and it was one of my favorite games up until I watched the Bolts thrash the Capitals in Game 5 of last years conference “nals. The playoffs are special. Not just in the pros, but college and de“nitely high school as well. Friday was my “rst chance to watch some real high school football playoffs when Charlotte High beat Clearwater 44-20 to reach the second round. I covered one game last year up in Dalton, Ga., but our local team was far overmatched and it was over before they stepped off the buses. The Fish Bowl was rocking Friday and the Tarpons fed off it and Im sure the same holds true for Venice High, which forced a running clock on Tampa Bay Tech. But before we jump to the upcoming rematches on tap for this Friday, lets look at some telling takeaways from last week. 1. Muse shows versatility I have watched Tarpon quarterback Alex Muse play a total of six quarters this season and hes piqued my interest for nearly every moment. He can throw, he can run. He can take a hit and he can certainly deliver one too. In those six quarters the senior dual threat has gone 15 of 23 By JOHN VITTASSUN CORRESPONDENTENGLEWOOD … How do you replace the greatest of all time? What does it take for a program to “nd success after the departure of their superstar? That is what head coach Emilio Baradith is grappling with as he enters his fourth season at the helm of the Lemon Bay boys soccer team. For the “rst time since coming to Englewood, Baradith is adjusting to life without Blake Dean. Dean scored a staggering 37 goals last season and set several unbreakable school records. He was named the HTP Florida Player of the Year, the Suns Player of the Year and had his jersey number retired. But Dean has since graduated and just wrapped up his freshman season at Florida Atlantic. Theres only one Blake Dean,Ž Baradith said. As long as I am here, nobody will ever wear number six again.Ž But despite having one of the best scorers in the state, Baradith admitted the formula didnt work last season. Finishing with a record of 6-13-1, Baradith knows that change can be good. He expressed excitement over the idea of developing a brand of soccer that focuses on teamwork and balance. Totally different ballgame this year, totally different players,Ž he said. We did a program where we worked out the kids and developed more soccer skills. We cant just play around one player. This year we have more players and will play in unison. Its totally different, Im stoked and I cant wait to see them play.Ž The objective last year was to get the ball to Dean. The senior would isolate a defender and use his top-”ight speed to beat that defender one-on-one and get it past the goalie.

They became the “rst team to gain over 500 yards and only come away with three points in their 16-3 loss. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 403 yards for Tampa Bay (3-6), but was intercepted twice and lost a fumble on a sack inside the Washington 10. The Bucs, whove lost three in a row and six of seven following a 2-0 start, failed to force a turnover on defense for the sixth straight game. Meanwhile, three of their four giveaways thwarted scoring opportunities, including Jacquizz Rodgers fumble on a reception that rolled 18 yards into the Washington end zone, where it was recovered by safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Alex Smith threw for 178 yards and one touchdown to lead the Washington Redskins to a victory, but the Redskins defense did most of the work. Dustin Hopkins kicked three “eld goals for the Redskins (6-3), who forced four turnovers and rebounded from a lopsided loss to Atlanta despite playing with a makeshift offensive line because of mounting injuries. Smith, who was 19 of 27 with no interceptions, threw 6 yards By GENARO C. ARMASAP SPORTS WRITERGREEN BAY, Wis. „ Aaron Jones ran for career highs of 145 yards and two scores, Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams connected for two touchdown passes and the Green Bay Packers beat the Miami Dolphins 31-12 on Sunday. The Packers (4-4-1) pulled away in the second half, sandwiching scoring drives around cornerback Bashaud Breelands interception deep in Miami territory. Green Bay went ahead 28-12 on Adams 25-yard touchdown catch with 7:24 left in the third quarter. Maybe this is the game that will get the Packers going in the tight NFC North race following a choppy “rst half of the season. Jason Sanders tied a Dolphins franchise rookie record with four “eld goals, but Miami (5-5) couldnt “nd the end zone. The Dolphins squandered another opportunity on the game-opening drive after Brock Osweiler fumbled away a shotgun snap. The Packers cashed in on that turnover, too, when Rodgers and Adams connected on their “rst touchdown for a 7-0 lead. But Jones, who “nished with 15 carries, gave Green Bay some much-needed balance. A slashing style and an explosive burst through the hole make Jones a threat to bust a big run on any carry. He accounted for 54 yards of total offense on the opening drive alone. Jones added a career-long 67-yarder to give him 96 yards on four carries in the “rst quarter alone. Osweiler was 23 of 37 for 213 yards in his “fth start for the injured Ryan Bucs make historyTampa Bay becomes first team to gain over 500 yards and score only a field goal in 16-3 loss to Washington AP PHOTOWashington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman intercepts a pass thrown by Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, intended for receiver Chris Godwin.Muse thrives, Indians evolve as football playoffs open Jacob HOAGSports Writer PLAYOFFS | 3 BUCS | 6With its superstar gone, Lemon Bay learns to play as a teamTEAM | 3 NFL: Green Bay 31, Miami 12 THIS WEEK IN SPORTS PREP SOCCER: Lemon Bay Manta Rays NFL: Washington 16, Tampa Bay 3Jones helps Packers run away for win over Dolphins AP PHOTOGreen Bay Packers Aaron Jones breaks away for a 67-yard run during the “rst half of Sundays game against the Miami Dolphins.DOLPHINS | 6

The Czech Republic kept its perfect record in the Fed Cup “nals by capturing the trophy for the sixth time in eight years by defeating the defending champion United States. Katerina Siniakova saved two match points before defeating So“a Kenin 7-5, 5-7, 7-5 in the “rst reverse singles on Sunday to give the Czechs an insurmountable 3-0 lead over defending champion United States in the best-of-“ve “nal. It was the “rst victory for the Czechs over the United States „ since the country was created after the split of Czechoslovakia in 1993 „ after four defeats in the Fed Cup. The Czechoslovakia team that won “ve Fed Cup titles was 2-6 against the U.S. It was an unbelievable match for me,Ž Siniakova said. It was up and down, with nerves. Im extremely happy that I won. I thank all who came for their support. It was felt.Ž U.S. captain Kathy Rinaldi said she was proud of her team despite the loss. We didnt get the result that we wanted but nobody can say we didnt give all out there,Ž Rinaldi said after her “rst loss as the captain. That match today, both girls, both players were incredible,Ž she said. Im so honored to have been part of that match, they really fought hard, the points were incredible, its just something I never forget.Ž In a hard-fought match at the O2 Arena, the 22-year-old Czech saved two match points when Kenin was serving at 5-4, and went on to convert her second match point on the indoor hardcourt in front of 14,500 fans. It was a long match, a lot of points, a lot of effort, long points,Ž Kenin said. We fought hard till the end. Its disappointing for me cause I had like two match points but couldnt turn things around. But I fought my hardest and I did everything I could.Ž Siniakova wasted a 3-0 lead in the “nal set and the 19-year-old Kenin, who was playing her second match in her debut Fed Cup tie, fought back. Kenin, who wasted three break points at 5-5, hit 43 winners but also made 76 unforced errors. Siniakova hit 24 winners. It was horrible, the worst (moment),Ž Siniakova said about the match points she faced. But its not the end until the “nal match point is converted.Ž At 3-0 down in the third set, Kenin needed treatment for what seemed to be a thigh muscle problem. The treatment was then repeated several times. It was obviously painful for me and I felt like it was just hard for me to move,Ž Kenin said. Trailing 3-1, the American wasted “ve break points in a game that took 19 minutes. On Saturday, Barbora Strycova rallied for a 6-7 (5), 6-1, 6-4 victory over Kenin to put the Czechs 1-0 ahead and Siniakova doubled the advantage with a 6-3, 7-6 (2) win over Alison Riske. The U.S. is the most successful country in the international team competition and won its 18th Fed Cup title last year with Rinaldi in her “rst season as the captain. The U.S. had not previously won the Fed Cup since 2000. On the way to the “nal, the Czechs beat Switzerland 3-1 in the “rst round and Germany 4-1 in the semi“nals. The “nal was marred by the absence of top players. Siniakova was the highest ranked at No. 31. After four of the top “ve U.S. women in the WTA singles rankings „ the Williams sisters, Sloane Stephens and Madison Keys „ decided to skip it, three players on the team made their Fed Cup debuts. The Czechs are weakened, too, missing their two top-10 players. Karolina Pliskova was ruled out due to injuries and Petra Kvitova due to illness. International Tennis Federation President David Haggerty said in Prague the ITF would like to have more top players in the competition in general. One of the concepts is to do something similar to what weve done with the Davis Cup. Nothing is determined (yet),Ž he said. Haggerty said the ITF would like to expand the Fed Cup World Group to 16 teams from the current eight because some of the top players are on the teams that are maybe nine through 16.ŽCzechs beat defending champion US 3-0 in Fed Cup final AP PHOTOKaterina Siniakova, center, and her teammates of the Czech Republic lift the trophy after winning the tennis Fed Cup Final between Czech Republic and United States in Prague, Czech Republic, Sunday, Nov. 11, 2018. The Czech Republic won the “nal 3-0. TENNIS: Fed Cup HAINAN ISLAND, China (AP) „ Gaby Lopez won her “rst LPGA Tour event with a 1-over 73 to “nish one shot ahead of Ariya Jutanugarn in the Blue Bay tournament in China. Lopez had bogeys on the last two holes at the Jian Lake Blue Bay Golf Club on Saturday and almost let the title slip away. She “nished at 8-under 280. Playing in a group with Lopez, No. 1-ranked Jutanugarn had a birdie on the “nal hole to also “nish on 73. Celine Boutier shot a 66 and “nished two shots off the lead. Lopez is the “rst winner from Mexico since Lorena Ochoa, a driving force for the game in that Latin American country. I mean, shes been my inspiration my entire life,Ž Lopez said of Ochoa. Thats why Im actually a professional golfer.Ž Ochoa was the LPGAs top-ranked golfer for several years until she retired in 2010. She won 27 LPGA Tour events. Lopez said she was also thinking of her grandfather, Jose Lopez, who died recently. I always told him that I was going to give him my “rst trophy,Ž Lopez said. Sadly I didnt, but he was with me all week long and I couldnt be more lucky, more fortunate to have him still alive in me.Ž Jutanugarn played the last two rounds with Lopez and was happy for her „ even in defeat. She did a great job last two days,Ž Jutanugarn said, knowing Lopez was nervous sometimes.Ž Lopez turned 25 on Friday and had a hole-inone in the third round, which turned out to be the difference. The tournament wrapped up “ve straight weeks of play for the LPGA in Asia.Gaby Lopez hangs on in China to win first LPGA title at Blue BayPLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico (AP) „ Matt Kuchar ended more than four years without a PGA Tour victory Sunday by closing with a 2-under 69 and holding up through a few nervous moments down the stretch to win the Mayakoba Golf Classic. Kuchar had a four-shot lead going into the “nal round. But after making two bogeys over the “rst 67 holes in the tournament, he made two bogeys in two holes on Nos. 14 and 15, and his lead shrunk to one shot when Danny Lee made a 20-foot birdie putt from the fringe on the 16th hole. Lee “nished with two pars for a 65. Kuchar still wasnt entirely in the clear. His 15foot birdie attempt rolled about 3 feet by the hole on No. 17 and he had to make that for par. And on the 18th, he left his 30-foot birdie putt about 3 feet short and had to roll that in to win by one shot. I didnt want a 3-footer on the last hole,Ž Kuchar said. I was hoping to have a three or four-shot lead for some wiggle room. But man, that felt awfully good.Ž The 40-year-old Kuchar had gone 115 starts on the PGA Tour since his last victory in the RBC Heritage at Hilton Head in April 2014. It comes at the end of what had been a disappointing year in which Kuchar “nished out of the top 70 on the PGA Tour money list for the “rst time since 2007, and he failed to make the Ryder Cup team for the “rst time in 10 years. My 2018 wasnt what I wanted,Ž Kuchar said. This is a high note. Its amazing thing to get a win. I go from Hola to Aloha. Im pretty excited about that.Ž Kuchar quali“es for the Sentry Tournament of Champions to start next year at Kapalua. He “nished at 22-under 262, breaking by one the 72-hole record at Mayakoba previously held by Harris English. Lee was the only player to make a sustained run at Kuchar, who had a fourshot lead to start the “nal round. PGA Tour rookie Cameron Champ had a 12-foot eagle attempt on the 13th hole that would have brought him to within two shots, but he missed the putt and sent his next tee shot into the mangroves, making double bogey. Lee had six birdies in 13 holes, but missed a 6-foot par putt on the 15th, unaware that Kuchar made a bogey behind him. J.J. Spaun (66) and Richy Werenski (67) tied for third. Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk closed with a 67 and was among those who tied for sixth. Kuchar won for the eighth time on the PGA Tour in a career marked more by consistency than trophies. This year, he had neither. He had only four top 10s „ his best “nish was a tie for “fth in Phoenix „ and was coming off a tie for 57th in Las Vegas. He added Mayakoba at the last minute, and with his regular caddie having previous plans, Kuchar hired a local caddie from El Camaleon. He referred to the week as a working vacationŽ because of the beaches and amenities at Mayakoba, though it felt like work at the end. Golf is such a funny game,Ž Kuchar said. Its hard to predict when its going to come around.ŽKuchar holds on to win Mayakoba Classic GOLF: Mayakoba Classic GOLF: Blue Bay tournament


The Sun | Monday, November 12, 2018 SP Page 3By BARBARA BOXLEITNERSUN CORRESPONDENTDevyn McCormick didnt pass on another chance to play football. The Port Charlotte High School graduate did not play the 2017 season after graduation, despite offers from Division I programs. Once he decided to resume football, Ave Maria University emerged as the ideal “t. Among three kickers/punters on this years squad, the freshman won the starting position over upperclassmen, one of whom handles the kicks on snaps inside the 10-yard line. Devyn is very well-schooled in the practice of kicking,Ž Ave Maria head coach Joe Patterson said. He takes it very seriously. He is always looking for ways to improve.Ž He has the height, the length, the power,Ž he said. Twice McCormick has been named Mid-South Conference special teams player of the week. I was a little surprised,Ž said the right-footed kicker, who practiced “eld goals and punting four times a week and kickoffs once a week during the summer. Its a pretty awesome feeling.Ž Through nine games, he ranked fourth in the conference with a 38.8 average on punts. He has been most valuable with his punting, according to the coach. Hes able to set up our defense for success,Ž Patterson said. Hes very good at dropping the ball inside the 10-yard line.Ž McCormick has been working toward consistency on “eld goals and kickoffs. As of Monday, he converted “ve of 11 “eld goal attempts, and three were 43 yards or longer. He had 44and 33-yard “eld goals against Edward Waters, the lone game he has converted twice. Half of his misses were blocked kicks. Having that range gives our offense con“dence,Ž Patterson said. We can come out of a drive with points.Ž McCormick said he has missed wide left on a couple of “eld goal tries in the 40-yard and longer range. Not keeping your head down and swinging a little over to the left,Ž he said about the cause. He tries to drive kickoffs deep so that the Gyrenes force the opponent to a touchback or “eld position inside the 5. He has averaged 58.2 yards per kickoff, and 12 of his 38 kickoffs resulted in touchbacks. Hes always had good hang time,Ž Patterson said. McCormick had a season-high “ve touchbacks against Edward Waters and three against Webber International.

MCCORMICKa team. The team depended on breaking balls (last year), one player attacking,Ž said Baradith. We cant win games like that. We didnt win many games even though we had a good scorer. With this team, were talking about building momentum up to the goal area, not just on a breaking ball.Ž Baradith is about to learn how strong of a foundation hes built. This years senior class was freshman when he arrived. Over his “rst three years, he divided his time amongst both the varsity and junior varsity teams, calling on his professional experience as a player when he traveled the globe to play for several international clubs. He knows that nothing will foster growth on the “eld better than repetition. Baradith made sure all of his players had a recreational league or club league to play in this summer. I based (our offseason approach) off a quote … We learn to speak by speaking. We learn to play by playing. The more you play, the better you get. When they came back (from summer vacation), they were more physically “t with more soccer skills and comprehension of the game.Ž Comprehension, learning and knowledge of the game are phrases that Baradith uses frequently. With just days until the Mantas “rst regular season game, he wants his team to understand the mental and tactical aspects of the game. Im concentrating mostly on helping the kids understand the game,Ž he said. I dont care much about the record right now, as long as we are learning.Ž Lemon Bay will roll out Alex Johnson in net, a keeper that surprised Baradith and his staff on his reads during junior varsity games last season. The rest of the pieces are interchangeable. Players will move around to different positions and substitutions will be commonplace as the Manta Rays “nd their new identity this winter. Ben Crumpton is someone who has learned a lot,Ž Baradith said. Ashton Gilbert and Harley Rusher have developed well through our program. Keegan Hoaglin moved here from Kentucky and has a lot of skills and can read the game.Ž Baradith admitted that no one or two players will be a focal point of his teams formations. Lemon Bay will play united and connected soccer. I think were going to do pretty good this year,Ž he said. Im really pushing academics and getting them to understand that they have a shot at college soccer and higher learning. My program is about them moving on after high school.Ž Baradith helped get Dean to the Division I level. But as the new season approaches, the Manta Rays are ready to turn the page and forge ahead together, as a team. MONDAY Boys SoccerNorth Port at Port Charlotte, 7 p.m. Girls BasketballGirls basketball preseason tournament at Charlotte 7:30 p.m.By JACOB HOAGSTAFF WRITERNot to be overlooked in the opening of the high school football playoffs, the swim season is reaching its peak. At Saturdays 2A regional meet, 20 events yielded state quali“ers from Lemon Bay and Port Charlotte High Schools. To qualify, swimmers had to “nish in the top two for an automatic bid, “rst for relay events, and the rest of the “eld was selected as needed to “ll the 24 slots. From Lemon Bay, Gage Denson quali“ed in both the boys 50-yard freestyle (21.93) and one-meter diving (336.55 points). He was joined by Charlie Plaisted (100-yard butter”y, 500-yard freestyle) and Meghan Brown (50-yard freestlye and 100-yard freestyle) as multi-event quali“ers. Reaching states in other events were Eddie David (200yard freestyle relay), Joey Sacco (200-yard freestyle relay) and Lily Collins (one-meter diving). Two relay teams also quali“ed. The girls 200-yard freestyle relay, achored by McKenna Lipkin, Reagan Vasbinder, Ashley Wik and Brown, and the boys 400-yard freestlye, including Sacco, Plaisted, Aiden Koss and Denson, will race this weekend. Port Charlotte is also sending a host of swimmers to the state meet to be held at the Sail“sh Splash Waterpark and Aquatics Center in Stuart on Saturday. Qualifying for the Pirates were Evelyn Negrette (100-yard butter”y), Daisy Marquardt (500yard freestlye and 100-breaststroke), Kevin Janson-Dugan (100-yard freestyle) and Oscar Marquardt (200-yard individual medley and 100-yard breastroke). The Pirates will also send three relay teams „ girls 200-yard medley and both 400-yard freestyle medley teams. Those teams include Bryanna Robinson, Negrette, Daisy Marquardt, Lucabella Romero, Janson-Dugan, Tanner Bloom, Karl Myers and Oscar Marquardt.

Throughout the season I assumed he was more of a runner than a passer (only 89 attempts in nine games, according to, but hes been able to “nd receivers down the “eld and make the throws. Sometimes theyre easy, like his 62-yard toss to a wide-open Freddie Fletcher, who was 10-15 yards away from any potential defender. But when the Tarpons need a throw in a tight spot, he can do that too. But he may be more dangerous with his legs. On Friday he made three Tornado defenders miss to reach the end zone on an 8-yard run, his second of two on the night. Hes good, Ill leave it at that. 2. Tarpon D bends, but doesnt break If you look at the yardage totals from Friday, you may not see it as a strong defensive effort. Charlotte gave up 457 yards to an explosive Clearwater offense led by senior quarterback Rent Montie, who has broken multiple school passing records this season. But yards dont mean much if you dont give up many points. They held the Tornadoes to 20 points, 5 for 12 on third downs and forced three turnovers, one of which was returned by sophomore John Busha for a 32-yard score. The Tarpons host another high-octane offense in North Fort Myers Friday. Charlotte won the “rst meeting 34-18. 3. Indians switching things up on offense Charlotte wasnt the only area team playing Friday, just the only game I was at so I phoned in some help from Venice Gondolier sports editor Vinnie Portell, who was there and has covered the Indians all year. Apparently Venice is making some slight, but effective changes on offense. The Indians have ramped up their already fast offense and have begun using some players in new ways. As for the new tempo, Portell said they snap the ball literally as the whistle blows.Ž Thats about as quick as you can get it. An up-tempo scheme keeps opposing defenses guessing constantly and doesnt allow for subs. Before long the defense will be caught out of position and big plays follow. Old players are also giving the offense new life, by playing new roles. Safety Noah Carr has been used as a receiver, backup quarterback Nico DallaCosta is taking some extra rushing snaps and speedy running back Mike Trapani has been a spell to bruiser Brandon Gregory. The Indians will face Braden River on Friday in a rematch of the this years thriller that Venice won 24-21 back in September.

Hopkins kicked “eld goals of 43, 43 and 26 yards, the last set up by Greg Stromans fourth-quarter interception and 24-yard return to the Bucs 14. The Redskins were outgained 279 yards to 136 in the “rst two quarters, yet led 6-3 at halftime after getting two “eld goals from Hopkins. The Bucs moved into Redskins territory on all “ve of their “rst-half possessions, but had little to show after Josh Norman made a leaping interception on the goal line of a pass intended for Chris Godwin, and Chandler Catanzaro missed a 30-yard “eld goal. Catanzaro also missed a 47-yarder early in the second half. Rodgers “nished with eight receptions for 102 yards for Tampa Bay. Godwin had seven catches for 100 yards.

RUSSOAP COLLEGE FOOTBALL WRITERThe day after earning a spot in the Big Ten championship game, Northwestern is ranked in The Associated Press college football poll for the “rst time this season. The Wildcats (6-4) were No. 24 in the Top 25 after beating Iowa to clinch the Big Ten West with two games to play. The rest of the Top 25 was fairly stable, especially at the top where the only difference in the “rst 11 teams from last week was No. 8 Washington State moving past No. 9 Ohio State and No. 10 LSU. Alabama is a unanimous No. 1, followed by Clemson, Notre Dame, Michigan and Georgia. Oklahoma is six and West Virginia seventh. UCF is still No. 11. Northwestern was ranked 17th at the end of last season, but lost three of four to start 2018.ADDThe Wildcats have had a strange season, losing early to Duke and Akron and late to Notre Dame, to become the “rst team in FBS to win a division without winning a nonconference game, according to ESPN Stats and Info. But they are 6-1 in Big Ten play, with only a 20-17 loss against Michigan. Northwestern has won four Big Ten games by four points or less, and beat Michigan State by 10.POLL POINTSThe number of teams with at least three losses increased from seven to 10 this week, including two teams (Northwestern and No. 25 Mississippi State) with four losses. Last year, the Top 25 released after week 11 of the regular season included six teams with three losses and none with four. The last time two fourloss teams were ranked this early in the season was Nov. 7, 1999, when No. 22 Purdue and No. 24 Ohio State were each 6-4.GETTING CLOSERArmy was to “rst team in others receiving votes this week, falling “ve points short of No. 25 Mississippi State. The Black Knights (8-2) have not been ranked since 1996.UP/DOWNNo big jumps into the top 10, but No. 19 Cincinnati moved up six spots and No. 15 Florida, No. 16 Penn State and No. 18 Iowa State all jumped “ve places. No. 20 Kentucky had the biggest fall of the weekend among ranked teams. The Wildcats fell eight spots after losing to Tennessee. Kentucky is on a two-game losing streak after reaching No. 9.OUT„ Fresno State fell out after losing to Boise State. The victory lifted the Broncos back in the rankings for the “rst time since September. „ North Carolina State is out after losing at home to Wake Forest. „ Michigan States fourth loss dropped the Spartans from the rankings.INNo. 21 Utah moved back into the rankings after beating Oregon after losing its top quarterback and running back to injuries in the previous week.CONFERNCE CALLSEC „ 6 teams (1, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25).

Indy (4-5) has won three straight. Tight end Eric Ebron had a career-high three touchdowns, including one on a 2-yard run, all in the first half. Blake Bortles threw for 319 yards and two TDs but the Jaguars (3-6) came up short when Kenny Moore III stripped the ball from Rashad Greene Sr. and Malik Hooker recovered for the Colts with 1:24 to go. Initially, Greene was ruled down by contact, but it was overturned on a replay review from the booth. Jacksonville, last years AFC runner-up, has lost five straight and six of seven since starting 2-0. Luck took full advantage of mismatches in the first half as the Jaguars struggled to cover Indys tight ends. Ebron, Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox teamed up to catch eight passes for 133 yards and all three scores. Luck wound up 21 of 29 with 285 yards and one interception but avoided being sacked for the fourth consecutive game „ the longest stretch of his pro career. But in the second half, the Colts struggled. They picked up only two first downs over the final two quarters and missed their only scoring chance when Adam Vinatieris 52-yard field goal slid wide right. Jacksonville, meanwhile, played keep-away. They cut a 13-point halftime deficit to 29-23 when Leonard Fournette capped a 17-play drive to open the third quarter with a 1-yard TD catch. After Josh Lambo missed his first field goal of the season, a 52-yarder wide left, he made a 55-yarder with 5:03 to go, making it 29-26. He never got another chance because of the fumble. It was a stark contrast from the first half, when the Colts were virtually unstoppable. Ebron got it started with a 53-yard catch and run, diving in for the score on the seventh play of the game. Former Colts receiver Donte Moncrief tied it at 7 with an 80-yard TD catch from Bortles, but Ebron answered with the second scoring run of his career on the final play of the first quarter. Ebrons 12-yard TD catch made it 21-7. Fournettes first touchdown run of the season made it 21-13, but Lambos extra point was blocked and the Colts nearly returned it for 2 points. The Colts then took advantage of two 15yard penalties on their next series, capping it with Alie-Coxs 1-yard TD catch. And when the Jags were called for offsides on the extra point, Marlon Mack scored on a conversion run to make it 29-16.INJURY REPORTJaguars: Center Brandon Linder and offensive tackle Ereck Flowers both left in the third quarter with knee injuries. Colts: Defensive end Carroll Phillips left in the first half with an injured groin and did not return. Defensive tackle Grover Stewart left with an injured ankle in the fourth quarter and did not return.UP NEXTJaguars: Jacksonville can snap its losing streak next Sunday when it hosts Pittsburgh.

The Sun | Monday, November 12, 2018 SP Page 7 NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) „ Tom Brady added another big chunk of NFL history to his resume. The Tennessee Titans made sure the Patriots quarterback didnt “ nish his 300th game. The Titans sacked Brady three times and hit him repeatedly as they beat New England 34-10 Sunday, snapping a seven-game skid against the Patriots in Mike Vrabels “ rst game as head coach against the team he helped win three Super Bowls. It was the most sacks allowed in a game this season by the Patriots (7-3), and coach Bill Belichick pulled Brady for Brian Hoyer midway through the fourth quarter. Only Brett Favre (326) has played in more games, both regular season and postseason, as a quarterback than Brady. The three-time NFL MVP also needed only three touchdown passes to tie Peyton Manning (579) for the NFL record for most TD passes all time for both the regular season and postseason. He left having thrown for 254 yards and no TD passes.SAINTS 51, BENGALS 14CINCINNATI (AP) „ Drew Brees threw three touchdown passes in the “ rst half, moving ahead of Brett Favre for second place on the career list, and the Saints rolled to their eighth straight victory. Brees led the Saints to touchdowns on all “ ve “ rst-half possessions with a nearly perfect performance „ only two incompletions. His 17-yard TD to Michael Thomas with 2 seconds left in the half gave him 509 career touchdown passes, one more than Favre. Up next: Peyton Mannings record 539. Brees had his way with the Bengals historically bad defense even diving over the pile to score a 1-yard touchdown. Cincinnati (5-4) became the “ rst team in the Super Bowl era to give up 500 yards in three consecutive games; New Orleans “ nished with 509.CHIEFS 26, CARDINALS 14KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) „ Patrick Mahomes threw for 249 yards and two touchdowns, outplaying Arizona counterpart Josh Rosen in a matchup of two of the NFLs bright young quarterbacks. Mahomes threw both TD passes to Tyreek Hill, the second giving the Chiefs “ rst-year starter 31 for the season. That broke the franchise record set by Len Dawson in 1964 „ with plenty of games to go. Not to mention the playoffs, with the Chiefs (9-1) barreling toward the No. 1 seed. Rosen had 195 yards passing with a touchdown and two picks, taking several brutal hits in the fourth quarter. David Johnson ran for 98 yards, with TDs on the ground and through the air, while Larry Fitzgerald passed Terrell Owens for No. 2 on the NFLs career receiving yardage list late in the game.Chargers 20, RAIDERS 6OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) „ Philip Rivers threw two touchdown passes, Melvin Gordon gained 165 yards and the Chargers won their sixth straight game. Rivers bounced back from a “ rst quarter with no completions to throw an 11-yard TD pass to Keenan Allen in the second quarter to give the Chargers (7-2) the lead for good. He hit a 66-yarder to Gordon on the opening drive of the second half. Los Angeles coasted from there against the Raiders (1-8), who have lost “ ve straight games by at least 14 points under coach Jon Gruden. They and have been outscored 75-9 in the past nine quarters in what has quickly become a lost season. Oakland started quickly by controlling the ball for 23 of 29 plays in the “ rst quarter and outgaining the Chargers by 129 yards. But Los Angeles allowed little after Melvin Ingram forced a fumble on a sack of Derek Carr early in the second quarter with the Raiders looking to add to a 3-0 lead. Rivers found his stride after that.RAMS 36, SEAHAWKS 31LOS ANGELES (AP) „ Brandin Cooks rushed for a 9-yard touchdown on the “ rst snap after Dante Fowler forced and recovered a fumble by Russell Wilson, and the Rams bounced back from their “ rst loss of the season. Jared Goff passed for 318 yards and two touchdowns, and Todd Gurley rushed for 120 yards and a score as the Rams (9-1) swept the season series with their division rivals. Los Angeles moved into commanding position for its second consecutive NFC West title, but only after plenty of late drama in a rivalry thats never lacking in excitement. Wilson threw three touchdown passes, rushed for 92 yards and nearly rallied the Seahawks (4-5) all the way back after his fumble. He hit Mike Davis for a short TD catch to cap a 90-yard drive with 1:56 to play. After the Seattle defense held, he got the Seahawks to the Los Angeles 35 before throwing four straight incompletions in the “ nal minute.BROWNS 28, FALCONS 16CLEVELAND (AP) „ Rookie Baker May“ eld threw a season-high three touchdown passes and rookie Nick Chubb streaked 92 yards for a TD as Cleveland ended a four-game losing streak. The Browns (3-6-1) played their most complete game this season under interim coach Gregg Williams, their defensive coordinator who improved to 1-1 since replacing the “ red Hue Jackson. May“ eld outplayed Falcons star quarterback Matt Ryan with a performance that further justi“ es Clevelands decision to take the QB with the No. 1 overall pick in this years draft. May“ eld completed his “ rst 13 passes and “ nished 17 of 20 for 216 yards. He threw a 28-yard scoring pass to Rashard Higgins, a 13-yarder to Chubb, and 11-yarder to Duke Johnson. Ryan and the Falcons (4-5) had their threegame winning streak „ and any playoff momentum „ stopped cold. And while May“ eld did damage, Chubbs record run was the backbreaker.BEARS 34, LIONS 22CHICAGO (AP) „ Mitchell Trubisky threw for 355 yards and three touchdowns, and the NFC North-leading Bears snapped a 10-game losing streak against division opponents. The Bears (6-3) had dropped nine of 10 against Detroit (3-6) and were seeking their “ rst victory over a division opponent since Oct. 31, 2016, against Minnesota. Chicago jumped to a 26-7 halftime lead with Trubisky and Allen Robinson leading the way. And the Bears surpassed their win total from last year with their third straight victory. Trubisky completed 23 of 30 passes against a short-handed secondary, with standout cornerback Darius Slay sidelined by a knee injury.BILLS 41, JETS 10EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) „ Matt Barkley stunningly sparked Buffalos bumbling offense with two touchdown passes, including one to offensive tackle Dion Dawkins. LeSean McCoy broke out of a season-long slump with 113 yards rushing and a pair of TD runs. Barkley made his “ rst start in nearly two years, and looked the best of any of the four quarterbacks the Bills (3-7) have trotted out this season. The 28-year-old journeyman was 15 of 25 for 232 yards while helping Buffalo snap a four-game losing streak as the Bills put up 451 yards of total offense. Barkley got the nod from coach Sean McDermott ahead of the ineffective Nathan Peterman despite having just two weeks of practice with the Bills since signing on Oct. 30. Rookie Josh Allen has missed four straight games with a sprained right elbow, and Derek Anderson is sidelined with a concussion. Barkleys last start came in the 2016 season “ nale for Chicago.TITANS 34, PA TRIOTS 10New England 3 7 0 0 „ 10 Tennessee 17 7 3 7 „ 34 First Quarter Ten„Smith 4 pass from Mariota (Succop kick), 11:29.

Buschs victory at ISM Raceway outside of Phoenix was the “nal qualifying event for next weeks “nale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, where it will be winner-take-all. Busch, Harvick and reigning series champion Martin Truex Jr., advanced into the championship round as expected. Joey Logano, whose day ended early Sunday with a ”at tire, has the fourth spot. The “eld is two Ford drivers, two Toyota drivers and represents four different organizations. Busch and Harvick have gone win-for-win all year, and Busch could have controlled Harvicks fate late in the race when he was lined up against Harvick teammate Aric Almirola on a restart. An Almirola victory would have eliminated Harvick from the playoffs, which Busch acknowledged considering. I did think about it,Ž Busch said. But Im here to win the race. They always want it to play out naturally.Ž Now Busch might just have the momentum to take the title. Id like to think it gives us a lot (of momentum) but I dont know, talk is cheap,Ž Busch said. Weve got to be able to go out there and perform and just do what we need to do. Being able to do what we did here today was certainly bene“cial. I didnt think we were the best car, but we survived and we did what we needed to do. Its just about getting to next week and once we were locked in, it was All bets are off and its time to go.Ž Harvick was the favorite to win Sunday and started from the pole but an early ”at tire made Sundays race more eventful than Harvick expected. He found himself racing late against Stewart-Haas Racing teammates Kurt Busch and Aric Almirola for the fourth transfer spot to Homestead, but Busch was wrecked late. We kept ourselves in position all day and there at the end, it was just like everybody wrecking and all over the place,Ž Harvick said. We just needed to stay out of trouble and try to “nd a safe spot there.Ž Brad Keselowski and Kyle Larson, both already eliminated from the playoffs, “nished second and third. Almirola was fourth and Harvick “fth. Harvick was stripped of his berth to Homestead that hed earned by winning a week ago at Texas when NASCAR ruled his car was illegal. The penalty forced him to requalify and he had to do it without his crew chief or car chief. But hes a nine-time winner at this track, was fastest in practice, started on the pole and led the “rst 72 laps before a ”at tire. That put Harvick back in 30th and one lap down, and he had to work his way back to the front the rest of the race. He was aided by a ”urry of mistakes by the other championship contenders. Clint Bowyer had a ”at tire that caused him to wreck, Kurt Busch was wrecked and that accident collected Chase Elliott, who earlier had been penalized for speeding on pit road. Kurt Busch had been penalized early in the race for passing the pace car. The intensity of the race picked up with a ”urry of late cautions that began when Ricky Stenhouse Jr. wrecked with 48 laps remaining. Stewart-Haas Racing used split strategy on the ensuing pit stop as Kurt Busch stayed on the track to move into second and Harvick pitted for new tires to restart sixth. NASCAR then stopped the race for the extensive cleanup needed for Stenhouses crash and the cars parked on the track for close 11 minutes. But Kurt Busch never got to “nd out if his strategy was the right one as he was promptly wrecked on the restart. Denny Hamlin, trying to keep his streak of winning at least once in every season, aggressively tried to dart to the front and while doing so shoved Buschs car into the wall. As Buschs car ricocheted back into traf“c he tagged Chase Elliott to end Elliotts bid to race his way into the “nale. Denny came out of nowhere and cleaned us out,Ž said Kurt Busch. Alex Bowman then spun, causing a cleanup, and Aric Almirola used the sequence to make his play for the victory. He restarted third, behind teammate Harvick, on the restart. Almirola dove to the bottom of the track to slip past Harvick and move into second. Another caution with 17 laps remaining put Almirola on the front row alongside Kyle Busch for the restart with 12 to go. But Almirola didnt have much for Kyle Busch, who pulled away.

NASCAR BASEBALLMolina, Realmuto homer as MLB All-Stars bounce back with win over Japan TOKYO (AP) „ Yadier Molina had three hits, including a three-run homer, and J.T. Realmuto also went deep to lead the MLB All-Stars over Japan 7-3 on Sunday for their “rst win of the six-game exhibition series after a pair of defeats. Realmuto hit an opposite-“eld solo homer to right in the fourth at Tokyo Dome, and Mitch Haniger scored the goahead run from second in a four-run “fth when Japan starter Shinsaburo Tawata threw wildly for an error on Mitch Hanigers bunt. One out later, Molina chased Tawata with an opposite-“eld, three-run homer to right for a 5-1 lead. The nine-time Gold Glove catcher picked off Seiji Uebayashi in the fourth inning. I felt like Yadis pick at “rst was huge,Ž MLB manager Don Mattingly said. We got in a little bit of a jam, pitch count is starting to climb, then Yadis pick.Ž Rookie Juan Soto hit a ”y ball in the fourth that was headed for the seats but hit the roof and was caught by right “elder Shogo Akiyama. Soto also hit the roof in Thursdays warmup game against the Yomiuri Giants. Winner Scott Barlow allowed one run and “ve hits in 4 1/3 innings and 65 pitches, striking out four. Eugenio Suarez hit an RBI double over Seiji Uebayashi in left in the seventh. He scored on Hanigers single. Having Yadi back there makes my life a lot easier,Ž Barlow said. I trust him very much and I trusted my defense as well.Ž
