SALESContinued From 1A Talking while driving targetedA proposal that would allow law-enforcement officers to pull over motorists for using cell phones while driving will be back before lawmakers in 2019. Sen. Wilton Simpson, R-Trilby, has filed a measure (SB 76) called the Florida Ban on Wireless Communications Devices While Driving Law, which would prohibit texting, reading data or talking on wireless handheld devices while behind the wheel. Currently, texting while driving in Florida is prohibited, but it is enforced as a secondary offense. That means motorists can only be cited if they are stopped for other infractions, such as running a stop sign or speeding. The House during the 2018 legislative session approved a proposal that would have made texting while driving a primary offense, allowing police to pull over motorists for tapping away on phones. But the measure failed to advance in the Senate amid concerns about issues such as minority drivers facing increased racial profiling. Simpsons new proposal, which is filed for consideration during the 2019 session, would impose a broader ban on use of cell phones by drivers and allow enforcement as a primary offense. It would allow drivers to communicate handsfree on wireless devices. Also, motorists would be allowed to use handheld devices for such purposes as getting safety-related information or for navigation.

Arguments set in marijuana smoking caseAn appeals court will hear arguments Jan. 8 in a legal battle about whether a ban on smoking medical marijuana violates a 2016 constitutional amendment. The 1st District Court of Appeal on Monday scheduled the arguments in an appeal filed by the Florida Department of Health, according to an online docket. The case stems from a 2017 state law that was designed to carry out a voter-approved 2016 constitutional amendment that broadly legalized medical marijuana. The 2017 law included a ban on smoking marijuana, which drew a challenge from plaintiffs including the group People United for Medical Marijuana and two patients. Leon County Circuit Judge Karen Gievers ruled in May that the smoking ban violated the constitutional amendment. But supporters of the ban have argued that smoking poses health risks for patients, who can use medical marijuana in other forms to treat their conditions. News Service of Florida

By KEVIN KRAUSEDallas Morning NewsFORT WORTH, Texas It didnt matter to James Godwin that other owners, including actor Nicolas Cage, agreed to part with their Tyrannosaurus bataar skulls after federal authorities said they were among numerous fossils that were illegally smuggled out of Mongolia. Godwin wants his bataar skull back. The Wichita Falls anesthesiologist and fossil enthusiast has taken the matter to trial, saying the government waited too long to file a forfeiture lawsuit. U.S. District Judge Reed OConnor heard evidence Tuesday during a one-day trial and will settle the matter when he is ready to rule. Godwin, 76, is believed to be the first U.S. owner of a Mongolian dinosaur fossil to contest a government forfeiture action since authorities began cracking down in 2012 on the little-known black market in dinosaur bones. Since then, more than 18 specimens have been returned to Mongolia, and two men have been convicted in federal court of smuggling fossils into the U.S. I had a giant spider web, James Hasskamp, a supervisory agent for Homeland Security Investigations in Wyoming, said during testimony Tuesday. It just rapidly spread out. Godwin is fighting to keep his prized specimen, which he acquired from a Wyoming retail store he partly owned. He is described in recent court filings as having a passion for nature and amateur paleontology. The feds maintain that his 70 million-year-old dinosaur skull, which belonged to an Asian relative of Tyrannosaurus rex, was among a horde of dinosaur fossils stolen from Mongolia years ago. Two previous owners of Godwins fossil Rick Rolater and Eric Prokopi pleaded guilty to conspiring to smuggle dinosaur fossils in connection with other cases from the investigation, according to federal authorities. The government brought its lawsuit involving Godwins fossil under the National Stolen Property Act, which often is used to prosecute antiquities trafficking. Under the law, the government has five years from the time an offense is discovered to bring a forfeiture lawsuit. Agents seized Godwins fossil in July 2013, and the U.S. attorneys office filed suit in August 2017. However, Godwins lawyer, Michael A. Villa Jr., argued Tuesday that the clock didnt begin ticking when the skull was seized but in July 2012, when agents first learned of Godwins name in connection with the dinosaur skull. The statute of limitations begins when the government possesses facts sufficient to trigger an investigation not whenever the government decides it has sufficiently verified the facts, Villa said in a recent court filing. The skull, valued at about $225,000, is being stored at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Mont., according to court records. Paleontologists from the U.S. and Mongolia had been expected to testify, but in a ruling earlier this month the judge narrowed the scope of the trial to the question of whether the statute of limitations had expired. The international custody battle has provided a rare look into fossil-smuggling networks. For example, one U.S. dealer traveled to Mongolia to obtain fossils from a supplier and shipped them to China to avoid a U.S. Customs inspection. From there, the fossils were shipped to the United Kingdom and then into the United States, federal officials have said in court filings. The governments investigation began when someone called federal agents in 2012 to report seeing a bataar skull for sale in Rolaters Wyoming store for $320,000. Rolater, 73 of Denton was the largest U.S. seller of high-end Mongolian and Chinese fossils, government lawyers said in court filings. He pleaded guilty in Wyoming in 2014 to a charge of conspiracy to smuggle goods into the U.S. and was sentenced to six months probation. When Homeland Security Investigations agents questioned Godwin about the skull in 2013, he told them he didnt know it was illegal to possess such items until he heard about a 2012 case involving a fossil smuggler, court records say. Godwin also claimed that if it was illegal to possess or sell Mongolian fossils, there was never any enforcement of those prohibitions, Assistant U.S. Attorney Dimitri N. Rocha said in the amended forfeiture lawsuit. Homeland Security Investigations found that Godwins bataar skull was unearthed from the Nemegt Basin in the Gobi Desert in Mongolia between 2000 and 2011, according to the forfeiture lawsuit. It ended up in the hands of a U.S. citizen living in Japan who sold it about 2009 to Prokopi in the U.S., court records say. Prokopis misadventures in the dinosaur fossil world are the subject of a recent book. He served three months in jail and agreed to hand over his fossils in an agreement with federal prosecutors in New York. Prokopi sold the bataar skull to a Florida fossil dealer, who sold it to a man who did restoration work on it, federal authorities say. That person sold the skull to the By Nature Gallery, a retail store in Wyoming and Colorado that Godwin owned with Rolater, court records say. The gallery transferred it to Godwin in 2012. It was unclear from testimony Tuesday whether that transfer constituted an actual sale. Godwins fossil did not come with import documents or a certificate of authenticity as other fossils do, authorities say. Godwin recently divulged in court documents that about 40 percent of his bataar skull is fake, meaning that portions of it were filled in with cast resin as part of a restoration. Such work is common for unearthed fossils, which typically are found with pieces of bone missing. The Gobi Desert is fertile ground for fossils from dinosaurs such as the Tyrannosaurus bataar, which roamed the Earth during the Cretaceous period. Bataar fossils were first found in that part of Mongolia during a 1946 expedition, according to the forfeiture lawsuit. The fossils arent known to be found elsewhere in the world, experts say. Multiple Tyrannosaurus bataar skulls that were dug out of the Gobi desert and smuggled out of Mongolia ended up in the hands of private U.S. collectors who dished out six figures for the fossils, court records say. In Mongolia, which is nestled between China and Russia, antiques and relics such as dinosaur fossils are the property of the government even if theyre excavated from private land, the forfeiture lawsuit says. KEVIN KRAUSE/D allas Morning Sun/TNSJames Godwin returns to federal court in Fort Worth for the remainder of his forfeiture trial in which he is contesting the governments seizure of his rare dino saur fossil. Doctor makes case to keep dinosaur skull Go For Launch: International Space Station turns 20 years oldBy RICHARD TRIOUOrlando SentinelFORT WORTH, Texas It didnt matter to James Godwin that other owners, including actor Nicolas Cage, agreed to part with their Tyrannosaurus bataar skulls after federal authorities said they were among numerous fossils that were illegally smuggled out of Mongolia. The International Space Station has turned 20 years old. Construction for the orbiting marvel began with the launch of the Zarya Functional Cargo Block from Kazakhstan on Nov. 20, 1998. The temporary control module for the ISS took off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, the cargo of a Proton rocket. It was the building block for many modules to come, including the Unity node that brought up just two weeks later on STS-88 by the crew of Space Shuttle Endeavour. While Zarya was launched by the Russian Space Agency, it was built by Boeing and the agency. Unitys mating with Zarya was the first of many missions for what is now a structure with a 240-footlong pressurized module, 357.5-foot-long truss and 239.4-foot-long solar array that weighs 925,335 pounds with a habitable space of 13,696 cubic feet. The current structure, or at least the major components of it, comes courtesy of 42 assembly missions, 37 of them from the space shuttle program. The space station hosts a six-person crew and has had more than 230 individuals from 18 countries on board. It has been continuously occupied since November 2000. Astronaut Peggy Whitson lived there the longest at 665 days. It has also hosted more than 2,500 scientific experiments from more than 100 countries. The station orbits the on average 240 miles above the Earth once every 90 minutes or so at 5 miles per second. After 20 years, thats more than 116,000 orbits and more than 2.9 billion miles traveled.

Actress says Avenatti had been violent beforeBy AMES QUEALLYLos Angeles TimesLOS ANGELES The 24-year-old actress who accused Michael Avenatti of domestic violence last week claims he had been abusive to her before, according to court records made public Tuesday. Mareli Miniutti claimed Avenatti had a history of being verbally abusive and financially controlling during their yearlong relationship, according to a declaration made as part of a request for a restraining order against Avenatti filed in Santa Monica this week. In the filing, Miniutti said a fight about money led Avenatti to shove her, twist her arm and drag her out of their luxury West Los Angeles apartment last week. Avenatti who gained fame as the attorney representing porn actress Stormy Daniels in a lawsuit against President Donald Trump was arrested on suspicion of felony domestic violence on Nov. 14, police said. He was released on $50,000 bail and is expected to appear in court next month. The Los Angeles County district attorneys office has yet to receive a case from the Los Angeles Police Department. Avenatti has repeatedly denied wrongdoing, and has lashed out at media outlets and insinuated in a series of tweets that his arrest was a setup by a conservative activist. Miniutti and Avenatti began dating in October 2017, and she said she had lived with Avenatti since the beginning of the year.
Baby-boomers and Generation X no doubt recall the days when they had to stay home from school and away from friends when they contracted chicken pox, measles or mumps. For many people, the vaccines for these diseases came as a relief. Now, anti-vaxxer organizations such as Texans For Vaccine Choice are not only taking advantage of Texas law to push conscientious exemptions for kids in Texas public schools, they are also arguing state-regulated day care centers should be subject to the same exemptions. Thats madness. Its bad enough that its taken nearly 20 years to undo the damage caused by discredited physician-researcher Andrew Wakefield and his baloney paper linking vaccines and autism. Now, anti-vaxxers use terms such as parental choice, medical freedom and other rhetoric to try to sell bogus fears as a form of limited government instead of acknowledging its a repudiation of scientific fact: Vaccines are the best way to prevent infectious diseases from spreading. Texas is only one of 17 states (and D.C.) that allow parents of public school students a philosophical (read personal belief) exemption from vaccinating their children. Unfortunately, that number continues to increase. In the 2010-11 school year, the percentage of public school students with a conscientious exemption was 0.45 percent. By the 2017-18 school year, that figure grew to 1.07 percent. People may argue that 1 percent of a public school population of nearly 5.5 million isnt all that much. But scientists agree that the herd immunity rate required to keep people safe from disease is anywhere from 90 percent to 95 percent. Right now, Texas school districts fall within that range, but as the number of exemptions grows, the herd immunity is put more at risk. Applying the personal exemption standard to child care facilities would be a dangerous road to take. The CDC recommends that children do not start to get vaccines for measles until they reach at least 12 months of age. Should parents have to risk their kids getting the measles at such a young age from older, unvaccinated children? We dont believe so. Texas was one of 25 states last year to report cases of the measles. Medical experts and researchers say that the continued growth in the number of parents not getting their children vaccinated is increasing the risk of a measles outbreak. One doctor said, It is really not a question of whether these outbreaks will occur but when. We should be thankful that technology and medical advances managed to bring us out of the dark ages. Its remarkable that in the early 1960s, measles cases numbered in the hundreds of thousands. By the early 1990s, measles practically vanished. Now, its slowly starting to make a comeback. Texans For Vaccine Choice is only trying to make things worse, and their position that personal exemptions are allowed for child care facilities is something Texans cannot accept. OPINION Leftovers are not only the best part of Thanksgiving; for many of us, leftovers are actually the best parts of life. Most people wont give you the evil eye if youre going for what remains after theyve made their choices. I learned early that if you focus your appetite on what others dont want, you can feast every day. Heres the real secret: The trifles, scraped off the sides, have the best flavor. I live for scraps. I want the bits the burnt parts, the crispiest pieces, the gravy and the bones. When Bruce Springsteen sings, on the Tunnel of Love album, about the way that spare parts and broken hearts keep the world turning, he gets it right. That which functions meticulously, elegantly and impeccably is not what well find at either humanitys core or the center of most kitchens. Real life is messy and not always perfectly timed. But the toughest parts of whats left over keep. Delicacies have to be consumed the moment theyre presented or else they can kill you. Would you like salmon mousse served on thinly sliced avocado seven hours after it was plated? Not if you want to spend the next day upright. How about if I throw some stuffing into the gravy and heat it up? Want that for a snack? I make stuffing from stale bread. There is basically no expiration date. Thanksgiving, more than any other holiday, is all about leftovers. Celebrating gratitude, bounty and harvest, Thanksgiving is about the relief you feel when you have more than enough. That signature sense of satisfaction is ideally braided with the recognition of both community and interdependence. Thanksgiving is also, of course, about imitating the first feast offered by native people to uninvited visitors who ended up surprising them by being the People Who Would Never Leave. In this manner, they set the pattern. Thanksgiving is indeed the holiday of people who never know when its time for them to go. One of the primary reasons you want them to go is so that you can start on the leftovers. With leftovers you can help yourself. Help yourself is a wonderful phrase because it works in every context: You can use it as a rebuke to those who are lazy, you can use it as an invitation to those who seem hesitant and, if youre Tom Jones in 1966, you can use it to turn yourself into a sex object rather than turn women into one. Helping yourself to leftovers means not waiting to be served, not having to stick to certain portions and not having to balance your diet. To eat leftovers, you dont actually even have to sit down. The food is up for grabs sometimes quite literally. Turkey that had been served beautifully, eaten gracefully, savored over the course of hours and discussed as a delicacy on Thursday can, by Friday, be eaten while being held in one fist while the other hand is grabbing a can of diet soda from the fridge. If Thanksgiving is about following recipes and cooking inside the lines, leftovers are about cooking and eating outside the lines. We can employ the language of those in marketing and instead of calling them leftovers, refer to them as previously loved, environmentally friendly, gently used and repurposed. While nobody wants food thats been around so long it can be labeled collectible, a lot of leftovers have some serious shelf life. Mistakes in preparation of leftovers, far less serious than errors in the original main meal, can lead to delicious inventions. Think turkey tetrazzini, pot pie and club sandwich. And some things are simply better the second time around. These include pasta, turkey and love. There are, in fact, a number of book series called Second Chance at Love. Personally, Id like to start an imprint called Second Chance at Lasagna. Lets just say that it would have a wider audience. We could modify the food themes as well. For St. Patricks Day, thered be Second Chance at Beer and the obvious choice for Thanksgiving would be Second Chance at Giblets. Second helpings can lead to serendipitous pairings: theyre the blind dates and meeting cutes of the food world. Sustaining works or art can be created from whats been put aside, thrown away or left over. Help yourself.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman ANOTHER VIEW Improve hurricane forecastsWe depend on accurate, timely weather forecasts to let us know when inclement weather is expected or possible, and we think Hur ricane Michael pr oved more research is needed to provide more warning when a deadly, destructive storm is imminent. Michael grew quickly, and even the best com puter models could not foresee how ferocious and deadly the stor m would be. Thr ee days before landfall, one of the more reliable models, the ECMWF (which stands for the Eur opean Centra for W eather Forecasting), showed Michael with peak winds of just under 95 mph when it reached the Gulf of Mexico south of Mexico Beach. After that, as we know, the storm intensified quickly, slamming the coast with winds of at least 155 mph. So, with all the money and effort this country has spent on improving hurricane forecasting, we believe that the forecasts should be more accurate. To fine-tune and improve future forecasting for hur ricanes in this age of climate change, meteorologists, climatologists and others must study ever ything that transpir ed with powerful, aberrant hurricanes like Florence, Gordon, Michael and Maria, and utilize the data to determine how Michael intensified in three days from a tropical depression to the fourth most powerful hurricane to hit the mainland United States. Some of that data will come from sensors deployed in Mexico Beach, which was walloped with a three-story storm surge, according to a Washington Post report that appeared in the Nov. 12 edition of The News Herald. Other data that should be re-ex amined are the intensity models that are used as gauges of how str ong a hur ricane will be at a future time. Although there has been marked improvement in long-range-forecasts, especially in the last 10 years, the forecast models and other tools used have not been recalibrated enough, as record offshore tem peratures can cause a storm to blow up into a monster much faster than it has ever before. W e know mor e about tropical cycles now, but not enough, and we think a concerted effort of weath er observers, scientists and perhaps even some ambitious students at the Florida State University Meteorology Depar tment and others like the Hurricane Hunters can collaborate to further improve our understanding of the sciences that would improve computer weather models and future tropi cal cyclone forecasts. And while we normally ar e one to urge fiscal restraint, this is one area with lives, livelihoods, property and so much more at stake money should be a secondary consideration. But, perhaps, a way to measure improvement in forecasting from season to season is in order. We wont suggest a mon etary figure, but we know it will be expensive. Befor e the Atlantic hur ricane season comes to a close later this month, we are confident all those involved in this crucial piece American security will be mapping out how they can ensure the 2019 season doesnt bring any surprises like this one did.Leftovers: The best partDallas Morning News Gina Barrecawww.ginabarreca.com Panama City News HeraldTexas anti-vaxxers look to gain ground Gina Barreca is a board of trustees distinguished professor of English literature at University of Connecticut and the author of 10 books.Now, anti-vaxxers use terms such as parental choice, medical freedom and other rhetoric to try to sell bogus fears as a form of limited government instead of acknowledging its a repudiation of scientific fact: Vaccines are the best way to pre vent infectious diseases from spreading.

By JENNIFER HABERKORNLos Angeles TimesWASHINGTON The only Democrat publicly considering a challenge to Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for the House speakership abruptly announced Tuesday that she would support the California Democrat instead, after being given a new committee chairmanship. It was a setback for the Democratic rebellion trying to block Pelosi from regaining the speakers gavel, and a reminder of her effectiveness at sidelining opposition. It showed Pelosi is willing to use an aggressive strategy to flip her opponents, including doling out coveted committee assignments. The decision by Rep. Marcia L. Fudge, D-Ohio, to step aside comes as Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass., another prominent member of the anti-Pelosi faction of Democrats on Capitol Hill, was shouted down at a town hall meeting Monday over his stance on Pelosi. 6A THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2018 NATIONAL LAKE CITY REPORTER Sen. Bill Galvano became president of the Florida Senate on Tuesday, promising to leave a contentious election behind and to promote a more civil discussion of issues facing the nations third-largest state. Galvano, a 52-yearold Republican lawyer from Bradenton, told the 40-member Senate there is little he can do to stem the tide of modern-day incivility that has become so pervasive in an era of social media and the 24-hour news cycle. But I can tell you that while I am serving as Senate president, the Florida Senate will have civility, transparency, candor and opportunity, including an opportunity for the people of Florida to be heard, Galvano said. Galvano was unanimously elected president during a one-day organization session that included putting in place new House and Senate leaders and swearing in lawmakers. Rep. Jose Oliva, R-Miami Lakes, was also elected Tuesday to serve as House speaker. Galvano brings a wealth of legislative experience to his presidency. As a House member, he served as a rules committee chairman, oversaw the investigation of a House speaker and helped negotiate a complicated gambling agreement with the Seminole Tribe of Florida. In the Senate, Galvano has handled the education budget and shepherded a major higher-education package through the Legislature. But in contrast to outgoing President Joe Negron, a Stuart Republican who made the higher-education package a top priority, Galvano outlined a series of issues where he expects to see legislative initiatives but said he would leave the details to individual senators to develop. A presiding officer, in my opinion, should be somewhat of a traffic cop, directing the traffic that comes from the members, Galvano told reporters after the organization session ended. Im not going to dictate to them. Theyre going to tell me the direction in which to go. News Ser vice of Florida OLIVIER DOULIERY/A baca Press/TNSOhio Rep.

The public warning issued Tuesday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Public Health Agency of Canada comes eight months after a deadly outbreak centered around the Yuma, Ariz., cultivation region killed five people. U.S. and Canadian authorities believe the current outbreak is unrelated to springs Yuma outbreak.

But the tribe is back, and with its key core of players still intact, Fort White believes it can finally reach the big dance. It wont be easy returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2014, but the Indians are confident they can make some noise in District 4-5A. Fort White will learn how its team stacks up as early as next week, when the Indians host defending league champion Bradford in Tuesday nights regular season opener. Were going to find out quick, fast and in a hurry, Fort White head coach Isiah Phillips said of the season-opener. All I want my guys to do is compete. Fort White is poised to bring back key returners like Chris Butler, Darren Mathews and Christian Wilson. The Indians are expected to also receive a boost from their football players like Myles McClain, Derrick Roberson and Kam Calhoun. Terrance Jones may be returning too but is currently nursing a shoulder injury. Phillips says his team is still building chemistry since the group hasnt spent much time together, due to conflicting schedules and players leaving for the break. Over half my team is coming from football so were trying to make the transition, he said. Were still trying to get over losing the game like that in football and [were] trying to start off positive in basketball. Theyre getting back in the groove of things. Theyre working really hard.

By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressThe winner between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson might be the least relevant aspect of their Friday night match in Las Vegas. Far more compelling was the outcome of a 72-hole exhibition played over two courses for an obscene amount of money Harry Vardon received nearly seven times more than what he had won from his one-shot victory over Willie Park Jr. in the 1898 British Open. That next summer, Vardon and Park played an exhibition billed by the British press as the greatest golf competition ever. Vardon won 100 British pounds with his 2-up advantage at North Berwick before 10,000 spectators, and another 100 pounds for completing the 11-and-10 rout at his home course of Ganton. So Woods vs. Mickelson is nothing new, except the public is not allowed at Shadow Creek. Whats unique about this exhibition, with $9 million supposedly going to the winner, is the delivery. This is golfs first venture into pay-per-view, and organizers were smart to keep the price at $19.99, which is about 25 percent of what a compelling heavyweight fight would command. How many people care enough to sign up on Black Friday? Um, no, Rory McIlroy said when he was asked last week in Dubai if he would pay to watch. I contemplated it. I was having lunch with Phil at one of the FedEx Cup events and I said, I might watch it. He took $25 out of his pocket and said, No, heres $25, Ill pay for it for you. Thank you. McIlroy says it might have been worth it 15 years ago, but that now it has missed the mark a little bit. Woods and Mickelson remain the two biggest names in golf even in this tidal wave of youth, but their one-sided rivalry Woods was the only rival Mickelson had, not the other The real measure of Tiger vs. Phil is how many watchFILE Fort White guard Myles McClain looks up court against Keystone Heights last season.

Oklahoma helped itself by taking a 48-34 rebounding advantage, including 15-7 on the offensive glass.

While at least one coach has been fired already in each of the other Power Five conferences, the SEC doesnt have any coach on the brink of being let go heading into the final weekend of the regular season. Barring a surprise move, 2019 would mark the first time since 2006 that the SEC begins a season with no new head coaches. Its unusual, said former Arkansas and Mississippi coach Houston Nutt, who now works as an analyst for CBS Sports. Everyone ought to be happy and working even a little bit harder since the ax didnt fall. The potential lack of coaching movement in the SEC doesnt necessarily mean schools are getting more cautious about making changes. After all, five of the leagues 14 members had new coaches this year. The only SEC coaches who started their current jobs before 2016 are Alabamas Nick Saban, Auburns Gus Malzahn, Kentuckys Mark Stoops and Vanderbilts Derek Mason. Things had to settle down at some point just to give all these new coaches a chance to prove themselves. Various circumstances helped out some coaches whose jobs otherwise might have been in jeopardy. Auburn (7-4, 3-4 SEC) is out of the Top 25 after being ranked as high as eighth this year, but Malzahn is in the first year of a seven-year, $49 million deal and firing him would be costly. Malzahns buyout after this season would be $32 million. Both athletic director Allen Greene and Auburn President Steven Leath have said Malzahn will be back next season. Theres no doubt, Malzahn said last week. Ill be the coach and well get this thing turned around. Thats what were going to do. Mason owns a 23-37 record in five seasons at Vanderbilt. The Commodores (5-6, 2-5) would earn their second bowl bid in three years with a victory over Tennessee this week but will clinch a fifth straight sub-.500 season with a loss. Although Vanderbilt is considered the toughest job in the SEC, Mason inherited a program that had posted back-to-back 9-4 records and Top 25 finishes under James Franklin. Mason still seems safe with Vanderbilts athletic department in transition. David Williams II announced in September he would step down as Vanderbilts athletic director once a replacement is hired. It would be rather unusual for a lame-duck athletic director to make a coaching change by removing a guy hed hired. Senior quarterback Kyle Shurmur offered his support for Mason, who is seeking a third consecutive victory over Tennessee. The Commodores havent beaten Tennessee three straight times since the 1920s. Coach Mason has been consistent since day one with his message, and I think weve all grown, Shurmur said. Hes a great coach, and I think hes going to be here a long time. Any questions about Missouri coach Barry Odoms future likely were answered when the Tigers won their last three games to improve from 4-4 to 7-4. Odom has an 18-18 mark in three seasons. South Carolina (6-4, 4-4) is having a somewhat disappointing season, but Will Muschamp is 21-15 and headed to a third straight bowl appearance with a program that went 3-9 the year before his arrival. South Carolina gave Muschamp a new sixyear, $28.2 million contract after the Gamecocks went 9-4 last season.
LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2018 A9 DEAR ABBY: Our family went away for a two-week vacation. One of my co-workers suggested I hire her daughter to stay in our home and take care of our pets and plants in our absence. The daughter is 20 years old and a student. We agreed upon a gener ous payment and paid her as s oon as we got home. Everything was fine, except our stockpile of Costco items (granola bars and juice boxes) out in the garage was nearly depleted. When I asked her about it, she texted me back almost in a joking way that she had helped herself and meant to replenish the supply, but it had slipped her mind. She had also borrowed a couple of items from our home she forgot to return (blow-dryer, a game and our wine glasses), but returned them once it was brought to her attention. I was happy just to come home to my plants and animals being alive and our house in one piece. My husband, on the other hand, was not. He suggest ed I inform my co-worker th at I wont be hiring her daughter again because she was very unprofessional. What is your opinion on the matter? HOUSESITTING IN THE EAST DEAR HOUSESITTING: I agree with your husband. Although the daughter isnt a professional house-sitter, she should not have taken items from your home without permission or without informing you about what she had bor rowed. And if she was not gi ven permission to help herself to the goodies in your garage, she should have left them where they were or offered to compen sate you for them upon your ret urn. I suppose the omis sion could be chalked up to imma turity, but I do think it should be mentioned. DEAR ABBY: I have been dating this guy for 2 1/2 years. We started dating when he was separated and in the process of getting divorced. My friends and family have met him, but he has introduced me only to his friends. He didnt want me to meet his family until now. (I dont know why.) He has a 3-year-old daughter. One day I sent him an article about your kids shouldnt be the most important. He became upset because he thought I was trying to separate him and his daughter. I explained that the article says you should love yourself first, but he still misunderstood me. I told him Im tired of him doubt ing and my love. He isnt sure if w e are going to get married in two years. What should I do? I want this relationship to work, but at the same time I feel like he is dragging me nowhere. VERY INSECURE IN CALIFORNIA DEAR VERY INSECURE: You say that although you have met this mans friends, you still have yet to meet any mem bers of his family. Why no t? After 2 1/2 years, this is a red flag. That after all this time he says he isnt sure he wants to marry you is an even bigger one. Put your cards on the table, and tell him you think it would be better for both of you to start seeing others because even after 2 1/2 years he still isnt ready for a commitment and you are.

Staying on top of your responsibilities will help you avoid a run-in with someone counting on you to do your part. Ask for help to meet your obligations if necessary. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): While looking for opportunities, dont get saddled with someones problems or projects. The best way to get ahead is to do whatever it takes to promote yourself, your skills and your ideas, not working to promote the interests of others. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Look at partnerships carefully. If you think both parties will benefit, great. If not, be prepared to walk. Do a background check; honesty may be an issue. Do your best to build up strength and endurance. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Dont let the little things get to you. Socialize with people who motivate you to be your best. Monitor those who have bad habits and who try to coax you to join in. Proper diet, exercise and less indulgence are recommended. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Participate in trade shows or meetings that will broaden your sense of awareness and give you a better understanding of whats possible. Refuse to let a personal problem you are dealing with stifle your chance to learn something new. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Short trips, getting together with old friends or colleagues or just taking a moment to gather your thoughts and formulate new plans will do you good. Dont let someone put demands on you or take up too much of your time. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Put more effort into emotional relationships. Take time to listen to problems, nurture connections and protect against love loss. Dont evade issues or mislead someone about the way you really feel. Honesty is the best policy. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Anger will mount if someone misleads you. Dont engage in a battle you cannot finish. You should do your best to nurture partnerships, not disrupt them. Put your time and energy into something constructive that will get you ahead. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Spend more time on domestic issues. Make changes at home that will improve personal relationships. Your effort wont go unnoticed and will ward off someones complaints. Dont let someone from your past disrupt your life. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Finish what you start, and positive changes will come your way. Taking on a job that requires your full attention will also end up lining your pockets with extra cash. A personal gain will change your life. Romance is encouraged. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stick close to home, and dont let important documents lapse. Keeping everything in order will help you avoid getting into trouble. Look to someone you know you can trust for good advice. Comedian-director Terry Gilliam is 78. Actress Lin Tucci is 67.

Without a doubt, the Mondaynight scoring extravaganza between the Rams and Chiefs was entertaining. It had more spectacular plays and head-spinning twists than a game of Madden or a matchup of teams from college footballs defense-challenged conference. As for it being a pro football classic, no way. And for those yearning to see a rematch in the Super Bowl, dont count on it unless each team finds a consistent defense. Yeah, we know, there were several big defensive plays that produced points in Los Angeles 54-51 victory, the highest-scoring Monday night contest ever and the only time two teams have each exceeded 50 points in the same game. Aaron Donald might have cemented a second straight NFL Defensive Player of the Year award with his strip-sacks of Patrick Mahomes. There were three picks, though two came when Mahomes was in desperation mode. There were four lost fumbles as each defensive line made its present felt for a few seconds. The box score looks as long as one of Andy Reids play sheets. What America saw was Madden 19 at its most frenetic. And thats exactly what much of the current sporting public covets. Give them receivers running free like deer in a meadow ; light shows of points on the scoreboard; announcers fawning over the action while ignoring the quality of performance; and offensive records galore. This was a home run derby with major league sluggers in a Little League park. It was a hockey shootout with NHL skaters facing amateur goalies. A dunk contest on 9-foot rims. Fantastic fun? For sure. But it can also be seen as an indictment of how the NFL helped along by college footballs evolution has headed toward flag football. How did we get to a point where the third-highest scoring game in NFL history, chock full of flying flags (21 accepted penalties for 195 yards), terrible coverage and some overzealous coaching is labeled a masterpiece? A couple of things are contributing, says Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy, now an analyst for NBC. The skills of the players on offense and the way the coaches are designing things is one. And the practice schedule that has been reduced really favors the offense now. You cant do as much work in the offseason and at training camp, and that hurts the defenses. Quarterbacks take their groups and they can get together and throw and work on their timing for two or three weeks. Defenses cant do that, so they are behind the eight ball from the outset. And the rules and officials have evolved to favor receivers and quarterbacks. It comes to fruition weekly. Consider that the NFL has had the most points scored (7,791), most touchdowns (895) and most touchdown passes (570) through 11 weeks in its history. The 54-51 frenzy is the punctuation mark. At least so far. Dungy and his NBC studio partner, former safety Rodney Harrison, bemoan the lack of fundamentals on defense. We saw as many examples of that on Monday night as we did tight spirals from Mahomes and Rams quarterback Jared Goff. A lot of coaches in general go over scheme so much and designing things and how you play your responsibility and all the things offensive teams can do, Dungy says. We have lost sight of the basics, you see the poor fundamentals. Adds Harrison, one of the best tacklers and cover guys at his position: One thing I have learned weekly and has become a lot more prevalent because of all the emphasis on the changing of the rules is that they dont teach a lot of technique in college anymore. Its all about a scheme and all these different formations and you try to trick people and do all this misdirection. Coaches spend so much time on plays they forget about teaching technique. Cornerback dont have technique, they panic when they are down the field. The ball is in the air, they dont look back, cant make a play. It was something we saw plenty of Monday night. Of course, receivers such as Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods can make any defenders look bad. But when skill players are uncovered so often, it makes you wonder if the offense is on a power play. As old school guys, we appreciate and we respect defense, Harrison adds. I said something (Sunday) night: If I was a general manager, I would never hire a defensive-minded coach as a head coach. The league is about scoring points and developing young quarterbacks; see Andy Reid and the Chiefs, Sean McVay and the Rams, Matt Nagy and the Bears. You have these coordinators that have a very creative mind for offense. But look at their defenses, they dont have great defenses. The league has really changed. 54-51 bears witness to that. With more likely to come.

This feels old, and the relentless promotion at times has made it feel contrived. Is it a bad idea? Not at all. There is no downside to Woods and Mickelson squaring off in a pay-per-view event on a beautiful golf course at Shadow Creek that everyone seems to know but hardly anyone has seen. But when the biggest upside is that theres no downside, selling it becomes an uphill battle. There will be plenty of talking, and Mickelson is rarely without words. There will be side action. Thats part of what makes this different from the Showdown at Sherwood, a Monday night exhibition between Woods and David Duval in 1999 when they were in their prime and battling for No. 1 in the world. The question is whether it has a future. Thats about the only thing that piques the interest of Alastair Johnston, vice chairman of IMG who knows a little about these golf exhibitions. Johnston was deeply involved with the Skins Game when it began in 1983 until it had run its course in 2008. In the midst of that run were the Monday night matches that featured Woods against Duval, Sergio Garcia and then a team format that ended thankfully when it had Woods, Mickelson, John Daly and Retief Goosen. Its very tough for me to criticize it, but its very tough to praise it, Johnston said. That covers a lot of territory for a lot of golf fans. Those who live to criticize will be reaching for low-hanging fruit. Those who want to watch Woods and Mickelson go head-to-head will have no trouble finding entertainment. Ill be interested, from a professional standpoint, in how many viewers it gets, how many pay, Johnston said. How many people actually care to spend money on that, and does it lead to other opportunities and different delivery systems? Golf hasnt been tested like that. Thats what intrigues me. The PGA Tour has approved only one of these matches, even as there is talk of a franchise. History suggests this wont have much staying power. The Skins Game was ideal for Thanksgiving weekend, and there was plenty of star power among Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Lee Trevino, Tom Watson, Fred Couples and others. Golf has that now with a strong core of young major champions, and perhaps thats in the future. But more episodes of Woods and Mickelson will get old, and history suggests that Woods and any collection of players might not be enough. In the old Monday night exhibitions, Woods went from a 7.6 national rating with Sergio Garcia to a 3.0 in the last of the team events. So the only outcome on Black Friday is how many care, even when it involves the one player everyone loves to watch. Johnston recalls not so fondly the time he put together a unique concept in 1997, the year Woods set 20 records at the Masters and won by 12. He was to play against Michael Jordan, Ken Griffey Jr. and Kevin Costner. For every hole Woods won, they could choose which club to take out of his bag. They had walk-up music. It was taped to be shown on Christmas Day. It was called Tiger & Friends. But then Jordan and Costner had to pull out, replaced by NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon and actor Chris ODonnell. And then it rained. The forecast is for sunshine and mild weather in Las Vegas on Friday. Thats a start. WATCH Continued From 7Anitely there. This season Fort White will be without star forward Deonta Rossin, who graduated this year. But the Indians believe newcomers, like senior Camron Brown, can fill in the paint. Brown is new to the program but Phillips says he could be an immediate contributor, as well as guard Tavion Taylor, whos making the leap from J.V. ball. We got to gel, Phillips said. I got a player or two that hasnt been with us, so were going to have to mold and gel together. But the good thing is everything in practice has been upbeat and all the kids have a positive attitude. We dont want to peak [early] like how we started off last year. We just want to work and get better everyday. Thats our motto. While Fort White returns a heap of upperclassmen, it remains unclear who team captains will be this season. Phillips says he looks forward to the next few weeks of competition to see which players will accept the leadership role. A lot of my guys were sophomores last year. Were short a couple of them now but by the end of the season, I hope were in the hunt for the districtWe just got to get the chemistry down, get some of the bugs out and get used to running up and down the floor instead of the [football] field. INDIANS Continued From 7AFILE Fort White forward Christopher Butler rises to block a shot against Keystone Heights last season. NBALeBron awaits his Cleveland reunion as a champ, not a villainBy TIM WITHERSAssociated PressCLEVELAND The air was heavy, heaving with hatred. And when LeBron James skipped onto the Quicken Loans Arena floor on Dec. 2, 2010, with his Miami teammates, scorned Cleveland fans aimed their fury at one of their own, the kid from Akron who was shaken by the experience. James was profanely taunted, booed and mocked. It was vile. It was personal. Eight years later, hell feel loved. James returns to Cleveland on Wednesday night for the first time since leaving as a free agent last summer and signing with the Los Angeles Lakers. Hes coming back to a city still grappling with losing him again and wondering what might have been had the worlds best all-around player stayed. But unlike his previous comeback, the 33-year-old is coming home to be saluted for what he did during 11 years with the Cavaliers. He revived a franchise, lifted an entire region and brought a championship. Its going to be fun, said Cavs forward Kyle Korver, who spent two seasons with James. LeBron had an incredible run in Cleveland. He touched Cleveland. He touched Akron. Us as individuals, we were all fortunate to get some time with him. I think hopefully he feels that. I think its going to be positive overall, and it should be. Early in the game, the Cavs will show a video tribute of the franchises career leader in virtually every statistical category. The images will capture his stirring run in Cleveland the buzzer-beating shots, the iconic chasedown block on Golden States Andre Iguodala in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals, James teary reaction to winning an NBA title and the parade celebrating the citys first sports championship in 52 years. There will also be reminders of his immense impact off the court, including the opening of his I Promise School in Akron, an elementary school for at-risk kids. But hes keeping his perspective on this Thanksgiving week homecoming. I dont try to put too much into it, he said Sunday night in Miami after scoring 51 in a win over the Heat. I will see some familiar faces. Ill think about some of the good. Ill think about some of the bad. Ill think about some of the great times that I had with the franchise, obviously. And then once the tip-ball gets going, itll be time to go to work. Itll be good to see some of my family thats going to come to the game, see some of my friends as well, and get the thing going. On that cold December night in 2010, James wasnt sure what to expect months after his taking my talents to South Beach announcement had incensed Cleveland fans, driving some to burn his jersey. More frightening was the reception James received in his first game back. Security was beefed up to unprecedented levels, but nothing could shield James from the vicious words. There were chants of Ak-ron hates you and Scott-ie Pipp-en and fans held up signs calling him a traitor, liar, sellout and worse while a national TV audience watched an ugly divorce played out in real time. Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert had fueled the disdain in a letter written to Cleveland fans on the night James announced he was joining Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami. But while the negativity crashed down upon him, James, as is usually the case, soared. He performed his pregame chalk-toss ritual and then dropped 38 points on the Cavs in Miamis 118-90 rout that galvanized the Heat and teased two future titles.
