Turkey’s president threatens to flood Europe with refugees Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has threatened to allow millions of refugees into Europe if it described Turkey’s military offensive in northeast Syria as an “occupation.” Erdogan told the European Union to “come to your senses” during a speech in the capital Ankara on Thursday. “I will say this once again. If you try to label our current operation as an occupation, our job becomes easier, we will open the doors and send the 3.6 million refugees to you.” Concern is mounting over the humanitarian impact of Turkey’s operation to push Kurdish-led forces in northern Syria back from its border. The Syrian Democratic Forces who operate in the region were key U.S. allies in the fight against ISIS, but Turkey regards them as enemies. Turkey wants to ensure that the Kurds withdraw from these areas, and to resettle around 2 million Syrian refugees there. The operation has sparked a political firestorm in the United States after President Donald Trump pulled U.S. troops back from the area ahead of the Turkish offensive.

Drew Barrymore is getting her own daytime talk show Drew Barrymore is joining daytime TV. Beginning next fall, the actress, producer and entrepreneur will host her own syndicated daytime talk show from CBS Television Distribution. “It is beyond my wildest dreams to have this opportunity for a daily talk show,” Barrymore said in a release. “I’m truly thrilled and honored to be creating this show with CBS.” Barrymore, whose acting career has spanned four decades, jumps into daytime on the heels of the conclusion of her Netflix series, “Santa Clarita Diet,” on which she also served as an executive producer. Barrymore’s show, which does not yet have a title, will be executive produced by Barrymore, Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell.


Two associates of Rudy Giuliani connected to efforts to dig up dirt in Ukraine on Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden have been arrested and indicted on criminal charges for allegedly funneling foreign money into U.S. elections. The charges against the men suggest Giuliani’s push on Ukraine and President Donald Trump’s receptiveness to it had ties to an illegal effort to influence U.S. politics and policy using foreign funds. The indictment involves two people central to the impeachment inquiry in the House. The two Giuliani-linked defendants, Igor Fruman and Lev Parnas, were detained at Dulles International Airport outside of Washington on Wednesday and were scheduled to appear in court in Virginia on Thursday. U.S. prosecutors were not intending to unseal the indictment against the Giuliani associates and two others Thursday, according to three U.S. officials.

Vaping-related lung injuries now reported in all states but one There are 1,299 lung injury cases associated with e-cigarette products in 49 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands as of Tuesday, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Alaska is the only state without a reported case. That’s an increase from last week, when there were 1,080 cases of vaping-related lung injuries reported in 48 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Among 1,043 patients with data on sex and age, about 80% are under 35 years old, 15% are under 18 years old and 21% are 18 to 20 years old. The median age of patients is 24 years and they range in age from 13 to 75 years. About 70% of patients are male. The CDC on Thursday also identified 26 vaping-related deaths in 21 states. Individual states have reported a total of 27 deaths.

As the suspected El Paso gunman is set to appear in court, one survivor tries to heal While the man accused of a killing spree at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, was expected to be arraigned Thursday, Sylvia Saucedo is still struggling to recover from the most terrifying 15 minutes of her life. The 58-year-old El Paso resident used to consider herself an active, happy person. Now, she can’t go outside without friends. She just recently mustered the courage to go grocery shopping again. She hasn’t found the strength to go jogging or swimming. Weeks after the August 3 massacre, she’s “trying to forget that evil,” but the mere sight of a young white man puts her on edge. She’s having trouble sleeping and eating, and she’s lost 10 pounds, she said. The therapist keeps telling her she’s letting the shooter control her life. The hearing for the alleged

for impeachment inquiry

Rep. Xochitl Torres Small, one of a small group of House Democrats who had not yet publicly stated their support for an impeachment inquiry, announced on Thursday that in light of recent actions by President Donald Trump and his administration she’s in favor of proceedings. “Earlier this week, the President and his administration made it clear to New Mexicans that they are not committed to finding the truth,” the New Mexico Democrat wrote in an op-ed in the Las Cruces Sun-News announcing her support for an inquiry. The congresswoman argues that the President and the administration “took unprecedented steps to prevent the facts from coming forward,” when “the White House and the State Department stopped a key witness from testifying before Congress and the White House issued a letter refusing to cooperate at all with the investigation.” —From wire reports

‘Sesame Street’ Muppet shares her mother’s struggle with addiction One of “Sesame Street’s” tiny, young Muppets is dealing with a big, adult issue as part of an effort to help families dealing with substance abuse. Sesame Workshop, the organization that produces the beloved children’s show, has created a series of videos that features 6-year-old Karli talking to her friends about her mom’s struggle with addiction. Karli came to “Sesame Street” in May to stay with a foster family because her mother was “having a hard time.” In the latest videos, she tells Elmo, Abby Cadabby and other friends that her mom had to go away for treatment and that she’s now in recovery. Karli told Elmo that her mom goes to meetings every day to help her stay healthy. “My mom needs help learning to take better care of herself,” she said in one video. “So she talks to people with the same problem.” Karli says she goes to a special meeting for kids where they can share their experiences.

Brooke Nevils, Matt Lauer accuser, fires back at him Matt Lauer’s open letter defending his reputation and categorically denying the rape accusation that Brooke Nevils leveled against him has prompted a new response from Nevils. She says his 1,400-word letter striking out at her was “a case study in victim blaming.” “As his open letter clearly reveals, there may be more than one Matt Lauer. There’s the Matt Lauer that millions of Americans watched on TV every morning for two decades, and there is the Matt Lauer who this morning attempted to bully a former colleague into silence,” Nevils said in a statement initially released to NBC News. CNN Business has also obtained her statement. In it, she said Lauer’s letter “concluded by threatening any other woman who might dare to speak out against him.” —From wire reports

Nobel Prizes in Literature awarded to Peter Handke and Olga Tokarczuk By Jack Guy CNN

The 2019 Nobel Prize in Literature has been awarded to Austrian author Peter Handke, while the 2018 award, postponed from last year, was given to Polish author Olga Tokarczuk. Handke won the award “for an influential work that with linguistic ingenuity has explored the periphery and the specificity of human experience.”

MUST READ His debut novel “Die Hornissen” (“The Hornets”) was published in 1966, and his other works include the 1969 play “Publikumsbeschimpfung” (“Offending the Audience”). Handke has become “one of the most influential writers in Europe after the Second World War,” according to the Nobel committee. He was born in 1942 in southern Austria. He start-

ed studying a law degree in 1961 but broke off his studies when “Die Hornissen” was published. Tokarczuk won the 2018 award “for a narrative imagination that with encyclopedic passion represents the crossing of boundaries as a form of life.” Her first work of fiction “Podróz ludzi Księgi” (“The Journey of the Book-People”) was published in 1993, but it was her third novel “’Prawiek i inne czasy” (“Primeval and

Other Times”) that marked her major breakthrough. It was published in Polish in 1996 and translated into English in 2010. And her 2014 historical novel “Księgi Jakubowe” (“The Books of Jacob”) is Tokarczuk’s “magnum opus,” according to the committee. Tokarczuk also won the 2018 Man Booker International Prize for “Bieguni” (“Flights”), which was published in Polish in 2007 and English in 2017.

Time for your flu vaccine


R. ROACH WRITES: If you haven’t gotten your influenza vaccine yet, it’s time to think about it. This year’s vaccine is similar to last year’s, but two of the components have been updated to match the strains that are circulating worldwide and expected to be epidemic in North AmerRoach ica. In fact, this year’s decision on which specific types to include was delayed a month to get further information about a newer influenza virus. Nine different vaccines from five different manufacturers have been released by the Food and Drug Administration. All flu shots use only virus components and no live virus, so it is not possible to get the flu from a flu shot. As in previous years, any flu vaccine is much better than none, but there are a few recommendations for specific people. In general, I recommend the quadrivalent vaccines, which provide protection against four strains. Most of the vaccines available in 2019-2020 are quadrivalent. Men and women over 65 are recommended for highdose vaccine, with double the amount of vaccine, and this year there is a quadrivalent high-dose vaccine (Fluzone High-Dose). An alternative would be the Fluad, which is a trivalent vaccine, with three components. This vaccine contains an adjuvant, which causes a more potent immune reaction than a standard vaccine. People with egg allergies can receive any vaccine, according to expert groups, although there are vaccines made without using eggs (Flublok and Flucelvax). Don’t delay getting your vaccine for fear of egg allergy. Two needle-free options are available: Afluria quadrivalent (given by a jet injector), and FluMist, which is a nasal live-attenuated vaccine. FluMist is indicated only in those up to 49 years old, and it has not been studied in the immunocompromised. The ACIP recommends against this vaccine for the immunocompromised and for their caregivers. The manufacturer notes that the supply of FluMist will be limited this year. Last year the vaccine was just about 50% effective. It is still possible to get the flu despite vaccination. However, the vaccine lowers hospitalization rates, deaths in children and protects expectant mothers and their babies. Getting vaccinated helps you, your family and neighbors, and your community. DEAR DR. ROACH: I recently saw my doctor for some fatigue and lightheadedness, and my doctor ordered some tests. I’m concerned that the urine test showed trace positive for ketones, leukocyte esterase and protein. There were 3-5 white blood cells. My blood tests showed glucose of 90 and creatinine of 0.8. My doctor was not concerned, saying some fluctuations are normal, but I am worried this might be an early sign of kidney disease. — J. ANSWER: Ketones in the urine are present in high levels in people with uncontrolled diabetes. You clearly don’t have that. It’s also present in people who consume a large excess of alcohol. The body normally makes a small amount of ketones. I often see trace amounts in people who have fasted for a long time prior to blood testing. People who deliberately avoid eating carbohydrates also may develop ketones in the urine. Urinary ketones are not a sign of kidney disease.

Alcohol-fueled abuse leaves lasting mark


EAR AMY: I have been married for over 20 years. My wife and I have had our share of issues. I have made my share of mistakes. Over the past 18 months we have been going to marriage counseling and have worked to address some of those issues. Over the last 12 months, she has started getting verbally abusive when she has had too much to drink. At these times, she says things that are filled with pure rage and have a stinging effect for a long period of time. To make matters worse, when I approach her about it, she remembers none of it and I am forced to relive all of it as I attempt to describe what she said, and the effect it has had on me. I have made it very clear that I think she has an alcohol abuse problem, and her response is to say that she is sorry, and she will watch her quantity of drinking to make sure it does not happen again. Yet, it has happened again, repeatedly. I suffer from low self-esteem as it is, and her comments truly hurt more than I can say. I have told her numerous times that if she keeps it up, she is going to lose me, and yet I stay, as a result of the vicious cycle of my low self-esteem. How do I find the courage to tell her enough is

enough and to finally stand up for myself? — Verbally Battered and Bruised D E A R BATTERED: Dickinson You and your wife are currently seeing a marriage counselor. Even though it is very painful for you to do so, it is vital that you bring up this alcohol-fueled abuse with the counselor. Your wife’s drinking and abusive behavior is a major factor in the viability of your marriage. She will want to diminish it, but you have the right and responsibility to present your own truth. You might want to create an audio (or video) recording of one of your wife’s tirades. She might be inspired to confront her drinking if she is also confronted with the reality of her behavior when she is drunk, and its impact on you. However, regardless of whether your wife acknowledges or confronts her drinking, you need to take care of yourself. Self-esteem and courage don’t always strike like lightning, transforming your life in a flash. These qualities are the result of a process of experiences overlaid with self-reflection and propped up by kindness and personal support.

Attending Al-anon meetings could help you to confront and cope with your own vulnerabilities, and receive support and understanding from people who are working their own solutions. Check for a local meeting. DEAR AMY: My best friend has been having an affair with a married guy for 12 years. She got pregnant (willingly). He promised he would divorce his wife after she gave birth. Of course, that never happened. I have kept her secret for too long because 1) It’s none of my business and 2) It would get her into trouble. But now with the baby born, I feel that keeping this secret protects this man and does more harm to my friend. I know she’s an adult and can make her own decisions. But adults can make bad decisions, too. And by not telling the wife, I feel like I am allowing a bully to get away with hurting my friend. What you ignore, you empower. Isn’t that the case here? — Caught in a Dilemma DEAR CAUGHT: I’d like to approach this from the perspective of the wrongedwife. Isn’t she the one being hurt the most? Isn’t she the one whose vows

have been broken? Your friend willingly entered into this arrangement, as did the cheating husband. The wife presumably is the person whose life will be most upended by this knowledge. Cheated-upon spouses always say they wish someone had told them. If you personally know the wife, perhaps you should approach this by weighing her right to know, versus your friend’s right to make her own mistakes. DEAR AMY: I endorse how you let “Cheerfully Childless in Chicago” know that in a family context, their siblings with small children will inevitably talk about kids because “kids is what they do.” What you neglected to point out is that nieces and nephews are an asset — they are the kids who can be enjoyed for a few hours and then returned to their parents so that cheerful childlessness can be resumed! — Affectionate Aunt DEAR AUNT: Amen! You can contact Amy Dickinson via email: ASKAMY@amydickinson. com. Readers may send postal mail to Ask Amy, P.O. Box 194, Freeville, NY 13068. You can also follow her on Twitter @askingamy or “like” her on Facebook.

Give everyone a sample of what you are capable of doing. If you stand tall and are tolerant, you will find a way to bring everyone you love closer together. Think big, but live within your means. Choose love over discord. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Look at the possibilities. Taking a different path and using your skills in an innovative fashion will lead to enhanced stability and financial prosperity. A change of heart is apparent. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Get involved in family matters, travel plans or educational pursuits that will affect your lifestyle or encourage personal growth. Take the road less traveled and start a new adventure. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) — Handle emotional matters cautiously. Don’t make a move based on assumptions or hearsay. Take a wait-and-see attitude and make decisions after you’ve verified the facts. Simplify your life. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19) — A change will help you see your personal situation clearly. Once you distance yourself from a problem, it will be easier to see what to do. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Make up your mind and follow your heart. It’s up to you to make a move, so don’t wait for someone to make choices for you. Do what’s best for you. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Use your intelligence, fortitude and insight to help you make wise decisions. Moderation should be a priority. Think carefully about your long-term goals. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Have an open mind, be willing to learn and make choices based on facts. Getting upset won’t help you get ahead, but taking action and getting things done will. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — A day trip or meeting will spark your interest in something that can help you advance. Learn to diversify and to engage in projects that can lead to exciting partnerships. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Don’t be fooled by what others want you to believe or think. Talk is cheap; action and taking responsibility are what count. Take care of business and do your own thing. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Personal improvements can be made. An unusual project will intrigue you, and the people involved will add to the temptation. Partnerships are favored, and romance is encouraged. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Don’t be fooled by what you encounter, see or are told. Explore possibilities, but verify information before you decide to get involved in something that could be costly. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — A change will help you see things differently. Visit a place you haven’t been for a long time or get together with people who have always offered valuable insight and support.

Joe Biden is a hypocrite on military aid to Ukraine W

ASHINGTON — Former vice president Joe Biden has said that in holding up vital military assistance to Ukraine, President Trump “used the power and resources of the United States to pressure a sovereign nation, a partner that is still under direct assault from Russia ... to subvert the rule of law in the express hope of extracting a political favor.” That’s rich. The aid in question is lethal military assistance that the Obama-Biden administration refused to give Ukraine. In 2014, after Russia annexed Crimea and began arming separatists in eastern Ukraine with tanks, armored vehicles and rocket launchers, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko came to Washington to plead for weapons to defend his country. In an impassioned address to a joint session of Congress — with Biden sitting directly behind him — Poroshenko said his country appreciated the nonlethal assistance he was getting, but declared “one cannot win a war with blankets.” The Obama-Biden administration was unmoved. The Wall Street Journal reported at the time that “President Barack Obama stuck to his refusal to provide weapons or other lethal military gear to Ukraine, despite a passionate appeal Thursday for help in fighting

can easily say we should have bombed and gone in and taken out their air defense system,” Biden said, “Well, you know, big nations can’t bluff.” Bluff is what Obama and Biden did — and Assad called their bluff. Not only that, they turned to Russia for a face-saving way out, letting Russian President Vladimir Putin broker a phony deal to have Syria disarm. It was one of the most embarrassing foreign policy debacles of the post-Cold War era. So it should come as no surprise that, when Obama threatened to impose costs on Putin if he invaded Ukraine, the Kremlin called his bluff, too. Putin knew Obama and Biden did not have the will to stand up to him in Ukraine. And he was proved right when they refused to give Ukraine lethal aid for fear of further provoking him. None of this excuses Trump’s delaying a new round of lethal military aid to Ukraine. But if this military assistance was as vital to countering the Russian threat as Biden says, then it’s fair to ask: Why didn’t the United States provide it when Biden was the Obama administration’s point man on Ukraine?

Police: Pair of suspects took wallet, gun from victim’s car By Taylor Denman taylor.denman

A pair of invasive fish, called Northern Snakeheads, can be seen in this photo from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. The department said a Northern Snakehead was recently caught in a private pond in Gwinnett County. It is the first specimen of this fish species, which can breathe air and survive on land, to be caught in Georgia.

Georgia DNR: Fish that can live on land found in Gwinnett Wildlife officials report first sighting of species in state By Curt Yeomans curt.yeomans

Fish typically don’t like to get out of the water due to their biology, but Georgia Department of Natural Resources officials said an invasive fish species that can breathe air and survive on land was found in a Gwinnett County pond earlier this month. State wildlife officials said this marks the first sighting of the Northern Snakehead, which is native to China, in Georgia, although the fish has now been sighted in 14 U.S. states. They are urging anglers across the state to be on the lookout, and report any other Northern Snakeheads that they catch while fishing. The fish found in Gwinnett were in a private pond. “Our first line of defense in the fight against aquatic invasive species, such as the Northern Snakehead, are our anglers,” said Matt Thomas, chief of fisheries for the Wildlife Resources Division, in a statement. “Thanks to the quick report by an angler, our staff was able to investigate and confirm the presence of

we are now taking steps to determine if they have spread from this water body and, hopefully, keep it from spreading to other georgia waters.” Matt Thomas, Chief of Fisheries for the Wildlife Resources Division

this species in this water body. “We are now taking steps to determine if they have spread from this water body and, hopefully, keep it from spreading to other Georgia waters.” The presence of the Northern Snakehead has caused alarm among state officials, who are concerned it could negatively impact fish species that are native to Georgia by providing increased competition for food and habitat. As a result, DNR is reminding Georgians that it is illegal to own, import, transport or sell invasive wildlife species, including the Northern Snakehead, without a valid wild animal license. Officials said invasive wildlife are often introduced into the wild in Georgia through unauthorized releases. One of the things the state

is asking anglers to do is to learn how to identify the Northern Snakehead. DNR officials said it is somewhat similar to a Bowfin, which is native to Georgia, in that both are long, thin fish. The Northern Snakehoead, however, can get up to 3 feet in length and has a long dorsal fin which runs the entire length of their backs. They also have a “dark brown blotchy appearance.” Anyone who finds a Northern Snakehead is asked to kill it, freeze it and take pictures of it, including closeups of the mouth, tail and fins. They are also asked to note where it was caught and contact their regional Georgia DNR Wildlife Resources Division Fisheries Office. Regional office contact information can be found at about/contact#fish.

Gwinnett County police are searching for two men they said stole a victim’s wallet and gun from an unlocked car and charged more than $1,000 at a Buford Walmart.

Mrs. Joann Toney (Hale) Willie “Joann” Hale Burrell Toney December 30, 1929–October 7, 2019 Just as she always loved a gathering with family and friends, Joann Hale Burrell Toney departed this life peacefully among many of her immediate family and close friends on October 7, 2019 as a result of complications from a stroke she suffered in June of this year. A devoted and generous kitchen magician, Joann was friend to everyone that entered into her life and she took pride in remembering and preparing the favorite dishes and desserts for each member of her family and friends. No matter how short the notice or how many surprise guests appeared for dinner, Joann lovingly made certain that no one ever left her home hungry or feeling unloved. Joann was born on December 30, 1929 at her grandmother’s home in Walton County, Georgia. She was the fourth of six children born to Euphratus Lee Hale and Pearl Mitchell Hale. Graduating from Monroe High School in 1946 she was first employed at the Walton County Court House where she met Q

Quillen Dupree Burrell, and the two were married in 1950. After the birth of her two sons, Steven Lee and Glenn Scott, she went to work for the First Baptist Church of Winder as the pastor’s secretary. In 1969, Joann joined the team at Johns Manville in Winder and enjoyed a 22-year career, developing many close and enduring friendships. Sadly, Joann lost Quillen to cancer in 1979; but being the beautiful and wonderful person that she was, in a few short years she met and married Virlyn Toney in 1984 and with this union, she gained two wonderful stepdaughters, Janalyn Raye Toney and Jeanie Toney Warbington. After retiring from Johns Manville in 1991, Joann directed her boundless energy into award winning volunteer work in her beloved Winder, Georgia community, including heading up The Clothes Closet, volunteering as the church librarian at the First Baptist Church, teaching Sunday School, and working at the local voting poll–to name a few. In 2003, Joann was named Volunteer of the Year by the Johns Manville Fund. Joann was preceded in death by her parents, Euphratus Lee Hale and Pearl Mitchell Hale; husbands Quillen Burrell and Virlyn Toney; brothers Euphratus Lee Hale, Jr. (and his wife, Florence) and Bob Hale; and sister, Dean Impeciato (and her husband, Vic). Survivors include her sons Steve Burrell (Carol)

of Gainesville, Georgia; Glenn Burrell (Melinda) of Watkinsville, Georgia; stepdaughters, Jana Toney (Perry Eller) of Decatur, Georgia, and Jeanie Warbington (Teel) of Vienna, Georgia, brothers Charles Hale (Jean) of McDonough, Georgia; and Gerald Hale (Pat) and sister-in-law, Betty Hale of Monroe, Georgia. Also surviving Joann are her grandchildren Scott Burrell (Lisha) of Watkinsville, Georgia; Lee Burrell of Gainesville, Georgia; Ryan Burrell (Chelsea) of Cleveland, Tennessee; Lauren Fletcher (Michael) of Vienna, Georgia; Bradee Burrell Aderholt, (Drew) of Gainesville, Georgia; Austin Warbington (Elizabeth) of Vienna, Georgia; Madison Warbington of Vienna, Georgia and eight great grandchildren–each of whom held a special place in Joann’s heart. She delighted in all of their respective accomplishments and successes. Joann’s family wishes to express heartfelt gratitude to the many friends who have blessed them through their actions and prayers, and to the doctors, nurses, and staff at Northeast Georgia Medical Center–Gainesville, and to their special friends and especially physicians, Dr. Craig Brown and Dr. Krupa Desai. The family will receive visitors on Wednesday, October 9, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Carter Funeral Home 265 GA211 in Winder, Georgia.

Joann’s memorial service will begin at 2:00 on Thursday October 10th at the First Baptist Church in Winder. Prior to the service, the family will receive visitors at 1:00 at the church.

Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful Hemp Gummies Give gets Bank of America grant Swollen Joints Sweet Relief for reusable recycling bags Hemp in chewable gummies legal nationwide, PAID ADVERTISEMENT

won’t get you high, completely eases joint and muscle pain sensations, deep sleep, too! PHILADELPHIA — The search is over for those seeking a safe, natural way to relieve moderate to severe muscle and joint pain. Thanks to landmark legislation passed by Congress, which makes pain-killing hemp legal nationwide, all Americans now have equal, unfettered access to what may be the strongest, legal pain-killer available today.

Taste the Purity, Feel the Power Healing Labs of Los Angeles, a global leader in hemp-based health solutions, has unveiled a delicious new delivery system for its pharmaceutical-quality, high-grade, organic, nonGMO hemp: flavor-packed, sugar-free, hemp-infused, gummies! Each chewable gummy, sold in four flavors, cherry, lemon, grape, and orange, packs in 25 milligrams of the company’s maxstrength, hemp extract. Users are smiling, reporting near-immediate results. Helps Swollen Joints, Muscle Spasms & Nerve Pain Used daily, full-spectrum hemp can help erase pain and swelling in joints throughout the body. “On day three,” writes one user, “I am quite surprised and hopeful that what I feel in my legs is real and that it will last. The pain, tightness, and swelling I’ve had for years has just gone away. Unbelievable!” Nature’s Best Pain-Killing Compound “It’s the Cadillac of hempbased pain medicine,” says Keith McPherson, a consultant to the industry. A recent review reveals 35 controlled studies involving more than 2,000 subjects, investigating hemp’s pain-relieving powers. Doctors Give It a ThumbsUp Medical organizations like the World Health Organization and the American Academy of Family Physicians support access to hemp and its therapeutic, health-improving ingredients. Unlike its sister plant, marijuana, which contains THC, the pesky ingredient that makes you high, the hemp plant does not contain THC and will not make users feel high. Government Hypocrisy? The federal government deems marijuana to be a deadly Schedule 1 drug, on par with heroin, but in October, 2003, the US government secretly patented hemp’s therapeutic ingredients (USPO #6,630,507) for its anti-epileptic, neuro-protective, intra-ocular eye pressure-lowering benefits, and other aspects. The hemp revolution began 28 years ago with an accidental discovery.


A Puzzling Mystery In 1992, Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, a professor of medicinal chemistry, stumbled on an unknown

Pain-relieving CBDs in chewable, delicious, sugar-free gummies restore flexibility and comfort to aging joints and muscles. protein molecule in the body. He knew it was a ligand, a unique chemical that fits inside a specific receptor — like a key in its own lock — but he had no idea what the molecule did or where to look for its elusive receptor. Then, It Dawned on Him He realized that he had seen this chemical before. He was sure that it was a plant chemical; manufactured by certain plants, especially the cannabis and hemp plant, which produced the compound in copious amounts. He was shocked to learn that this chemical, which is made in the body, was actually a cannabinoid, one of more than 130 pharmacologically active, therapeutic compounds also produced in the hemp plant!

Why was the body making its own cannabinoids… wondered the doctor. Dr. Mechoulam went on to discover other cannabinoids produced in the body. He also found the elusive, ’missing’ receptors, too, but he wasn’t prepared for what he discovered. Hiding in Plain Sight: A Vast Natural Medicine Network He was shocked to discover the EndoCannabinoid System (ECS), a vast, bodywide net-work of trillions of cannabinoid receptors, heavily concen-trated in the brain, in every or-gan, gland, tendon, even your cartilage. When cannabinoids, whether produced by the body or from hemp, connect with their re-ceptors, marvelous things be-gin to happen. Feel Stronger, Happier, Pain-Free! Users report feeling calmer, more at ease, blood pressure normalizes, pain subsides, sleep, digestion, and circula-tion improves, immune powers strengthen, and people, in general, feel happier and more content. Feel Your Joint Pain Disappear There’s one thing that hemp does better than anything else, and that’s relieve the pain, swelling, and aching from sore joints and muscles. Cannabinoids attack pain quickly, relieving swollen, sore joints by stabilizing distraught nerve

cells to prevent excessive firing, ‘calming’ injured tissues, and dampening the release of chemicals that cause swelling. Susan K. injured her wrist playing volleyball at the beach. “It got to where I couldn’t shift gears in my car without pain. In two days after using hemp gummies, the pain disappeared. It hasn’t come back either,” she smiled.

Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful officials are preparing to launch an educational campaign designed to teach county residents why they shouldn’t use plastic grocery bags to collect their recyclable items. The organization announced Wednesday that it recently received a $10,000 grant from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation for the educational campaign, which will also include the creation and distribution of Green Communities reusable bags. “We’ve found that a lot of households like to collect their recyclables in plastic grocery bags,” Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful Executive Director Schelly Marlatt said. “Unfortunately, those bags are not recyclable curb-

side and often lead to contamination of the recycling supply chain. “It is our hope to not only replace Schelly those bags Marlatt with the reusable bags we’ll be providing – thanks to this grant from Bank of America, but we’ll also be educating Gwinnett County citizens on key steps to take to recycle properly.” Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful officials said they chose to use the money to produce reusable bags instead of brochures on the topic because they felt the flyers could just end up being thrown away after they were read. Reusable bags, they said, instead offered something Gwinnett residents could use multiple times for recycling.

The information on the bags will be written in multiple languages and explain how to avoid contamination of the recycling stream, which will reduce space used in landfills. And by making them reusable, the bags are also less likely to become litter, according to Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful officials. It’s a proposal that, given the awarding of the grant, Bank of America officials are interested in. “We are excited to partner with Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful on this initiative,” Bank of America Atlanta Market President Wendy Stewart said. “Our commitment is to help build thriving communities by addressing issues fundamental to economic health and sustainability which makes this a good partnership with this leading environmental organization.

State fire marshal steps down Former Johns Creek chief served less than 10 months By Taylor Denman taylor.denman

it was for the best for Mr. Hogan to step down from his position as we take the department in a new diJeff rection,” the Hogan statement said. “We wish him the best in his future endeavors.” The insurance commissioner’s office said the position had not been filled. The department plans to formally announce the state’s new fire marshal once and appointment is formally made. “Commissioner King is working with his staff to make an appointment as soon as possible,” Department of Insurance Public

Information Officer Brandon Wright said. Hogan was a 35-year veteran in firefighting at the time of his appointment. He officially retired from the Johns Creek Fire Department to accept Insurance and Fire Safety Commissioner Jeff Beck’s appointment. Hogan was named the Johns Creek fire chief in February 2011 after joining the department in 2008. His career began with the Fulton County Fire Department, where he worked in a variety of investigative and supervisory roles until 2008, when he joined the Johns Creek department. Hogan was a successor to former state fire marshal Dwayne Garriss, who was appointed in 2011.

Back Pain Melts Away Retired school teacher, Barbara M., age 61, began using high-strength hemp gummies for back pain. She also received a pleasant surprise. “After a couple of days, I noticed that my back pain was melting away. I no longer had stiffness and pain from sitting too long.” She also noticed a change in how she felt. “I became more upbeat and, I hate to say it, I feel more perky now. But don’t tell my friends. I’ll never hear the end of it,” she laughs.

Jeff Hogan, a former Johns Creek Fire Chief who was appointed as Georgia’s state fire marshal in January, has stepped down from the position after less than 10 months. A spokesperson with the Georgia Department of Insurance said Hogan stepped down about two weeks ago after a conversation with Insurance Commissioner John F. King. The Insurance Commissioner’s office released a statement regarding his resignation. “Commissioner King recently sat down with Fire Marshal Jeff Hogan to discuss the future of the department and both agreed that

What’s Best: CBD Oil or… Whole Plant, Hemp Gummies? Hemp Gummies from Healing Labs contain whole plant, full-spectrum hemp, which contains all 130 of the cannabinoids found in hemp. “Companies that cherry-pick one or two cannabinoids for hemp oil are missing the boat,” says McPherson. “Studies show that they just don’t work as well.” Preclinical data shows that multiple cannabinoids like those found in Hemp Gummies are far more effective at reducing pain than a single cannabinoid. Healing Lab’s Hemp Gummies contain pure, whole plant, pharmaceuticalquality hemp extract, the same re-markable substance used in research studies worldwide. It’s the only source of organic, pesticide-free, nonGMO, hemp on the market today.

Georgia Gwinnett College biology and chemistry students who intend to pursue a doctorate in pharmacy or pharmacological research can now enroll at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Georgia campus as early as their junior years in college. A new agreement signed by leadership at both schools will facilitate a pipeline for GGC students to the PCOM School of Pharmacy. “We have seen a steady pipeline of students who major in biology or chemistry with the intent to pursue a career in pharmacy or pharmacological research,” Joseph Sloop, interim dean of the GGC School of Science and Technology, said. “This agreement with PCOM Georgia will enable them to achieve their career goals more quickly and with less cost.” According to Shawn Spencer, dean of the PCOM School of Pharmacy, the agreement will allow eligible students at GGC to enter the school of pharmacy after completing their junior year of college. Students who meet the pharmacy school’s requirements may enter the program before graduating from GGC and will have the opportunity to earn a combined bachelor’s and doctorate degree while at PCOM Georgia. Student receive their bachelor’s degree from GGC in the third year of pharmacy school at PCOM after they’ve earned the required credits

This will allow students to begin their careers early while saving money. “Our agreement with Georgia Gwinnett College exemplifies how the PCOM School of Pharmacy is working hard to help our students achieve their goal of becoming pharmacists. We applaud GGC for partnering with us as we support Georgia students who are entering the healthcare workforce,” Spencer said. PCOM agreed to similar partnerships with Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, Middle Georgia State University and Valdosta State University. PCOM pharmacy doctor-

al students can also focus concentrate in the pharmacy practice areas of acute, ambulatory and managed care or one of three graduate business programs offered in partnership with Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. “This is an important development as we look to opportunities that provide expanded career opportunities for GGC students,” GGC President Jann L. Joseph said. “We are delighted to partner with PCOM Georgia to offer a program that benefits our students, aligns with GGC’s mission and vision, and meets the healthcare needs of Gwinnett and beyond.” ♦ Friday, october 11, 2019 ♦ B3


a look at this week’s prep football matchups (all games at 7:30 p.m. today unless otherwise noted)

ARCHER AT NEWTON ARCHER TIGERS (8-AAAAAAA) Coach: andy dyer Record: 3-2, 0-0 Last week: Had a bye


NEWTON RAMS (8-AAAAAAA) Coach: camiel grant Record: 5-1, 1-0 Last week: beat south gwinnett 19-0

CEDAR SHOALS JAGUARS (8-AAAAA) Coach: leroy ryals Record: 4-2, 0-1 Last week: lost to clarke central 34-10

BUFORD WOLVES (8-AAAAA) Coach: bryant appling Record: 6-0, 1-0 Last week: beat Johnson-gainesville 56-7

while most gwinnett county public schools’ football programs moved this week’s games to thursday because of Fall break, archer won’t play until saturday afternoon thanks to newton sharing a stadium. “we got an extra day of preparation, that’s how we looked at it, just an extra day of prep,” archer head coach andy dyer said. “we’ve been able to work on us and we haven’t been in as big of a rush to get prepared as when you’re trying to get everything crammed in.” with an off date last Friday, archer had more than two weeks to get ready for newton, which has only lost to buford (by a 42-14 score). archer also lost to buford, falling 29-28 in overtime in its last outing. the tigers expect a tough test from newton in a difficult environment. the saturday afternoon kickoff also is unique, a repeat of the 2017 when archer barely escaped covington with a 20-19 win. “they’ve got a lot of team speed,” dyer said of newton. “they’ve got a couple of guys as soon as Jordon they touch the ball they can go to the house. we’ve got to do a good job tackling in space. they’ve Swain got a solid football team. coach (camiel grant) is doing a great job. For us, it’s the first region game and that’s a big deal. we need to get out of the gate and be 1-0.” archer closed its last game against buford with a flurry, marching on a long drive to force overtime and going ahead in the extra period. it lost when the wolves converted a two-point conversion to close the first ot. Jordon swain (18 rushes, 120 yards, touchdown, two catches for 16 yards) continues to be a big part of the offense, while derek Harden, ethan lane and aiden aufderheide played well along the line. Jalen williams (11 tackles) and tyler roach (10 tackles, two for losses, one sack) led the defense. When: saturday, 2 p.m. Last meeting: archer won 40-14 last year Location: Homer sharp stadium, covington

buford got off to a flying start in region 8-aaaaa play with last week’s win over Johnson-gainesville, and look to continue that momentum by welcoming cedar shoals to tom riden stadium on Friday. while coach bryant appling has been pleased with the growth of the team across the board throughout the season, he is particularly delighted with the development of the running game. the wolves have put up nearly 200 yards per game on the ground, including more than 140 per game by the tandem of gabe ervin Jr. and elijah turner, behind an offensive line anchored by senior malone Vangorder. “i feel like we’re in a good place,” appling said. “nobody’s perfect at this point in the season, but i’m proud of the kids for getting through the first half of the season and still being focused. we’re still making some young mistakes, but we are getting better each week. Malone “our running game has been strong. (opponents) have been loading the box on us, and we’ve VanGorder handled it better each week.” continuing controlling the ground game, and thus controlling time of possession, should also be a key to Friday’s game against a cedar shoals team that is likely looking to do the same. the Jaguars have been much more ground heavy than the wolves, having put up more than 1,200 yards on the season, paced by sophomore Jerdavian colbert and senior quarterback Jaylan rusher. “we know they want to control the ball and be physical,” appling said of cedar shoals. “but they’re also one of the more athletic teams we’ve seen this season, and their quarterback will be able to either run or pass at any time. so we’ve got to show up in a physical way this week.” Last meeting: buford won 55-6 last year Location: buford High school



GAC SPARTANS (7-AAA) Coach: tim Hardy Record: 5-1, 2-0 Last week: beat north Hall 45-21

DAWSON COUNTY TIGERS (7-AAA) Coach: sid maxwell Record: 5-1, 2-0 Last week: beat east Hall 52-34

it’s just past midseason, but greater atlanta christian’s clash with dawson county has significant implications. the winner is likely the region 7-aaa champ, a title the spartans are hungry to retain for the sixth straight year. “our players and coaches understand the magnitude of the game and we’re fired up to play a good opponent in a critical matchup,” gac head coach tim Hardy said. “it’s oct. 11, but we all understand the positive implications for the winner. it’s a big game. there’s a lot on the line.” the spartans won 23-20 last year in norcross, but dawson county’s is quite a bit different on offense this season. last year, the tigers were a run-first team. “this year, they are much more diverse — which makes them harder to defend,” Hardy said. “the thing that stands out to me is it’s a really balanced team. they stress you to defend the entire field. as we Montae started to break it down, they have a lot of good players and an ability to attack in a multitude of ways.” Bailey some of the same things can be said about gac. senior quarterback Jackson Hardy has thrown for more than 1,000 yards in six games, and to 15 different receivers. His primary targets have been christian thomas, brooks miller and Jake Hicks. the ground game includes a number of options, led by tyler bride and his 755 yards, montae bailey and tre Henry. bailey also has been a playmaker in the secondary on defense. “defensively, (dawson county) has good team speed,” Hardy said. “they are smart schematically.” both teams have good kickers as well. in the waning seconds of the first half last week, dawson county opted to let caleb bonesteel attempt a 67-yard field goal (three yards longer than the nFl record). it was short, but it speaks to the tigers’ confidence in his leg. gac’s tyler curland is 20 for 20 on point-after attempts and has made the only field goals he’s been asked to take (22 and 20 yards). the junior is averaging almost 55 yards on 25 kickoffs and 37.5 yards on 14 punts. Last meeting: gac won 23-20 last year Location: dawson county

PROVIDENCE CHRISTIAN STORM (8-A) Coach: parker conley Record: 1-4, 0-2 Last week: lost to george walton 44-7

providence christian tackles another spread offense this week at riverside military academy. the storm are looking to get back on track after four straight losses. they won the season opener, but since have faced a number of class a’s top teams. providence worked on correcting some of its mistakes monday but then quickly turned to the installation of new wrinkles to the game plan. “(the eagles) have done a really good job of using their athletes,” storm head coach parker conley said. “we hope we can use our scheme and discipline to counteract that. what it looks like is flying full speed to the ball and making plays in space. “we have to make sure we pressure them. it’s one of those things were we know what’s in front of us, we just have to execute,” Evan providence’s offensive line is getting back to full strength. the storm are employing a twoO’Leary quarterback systems with ryan rose and pierce phillips. running back evan o’leary, who played center against commerce earlier this season when injuries took a toll, rushed for 84 yards last week. “He’s been battling injury, too, but he’s been a workhorse,” conley said. “we want to be able to use a lot of movement pre-snap to see what the defense is going to do, finding match-ups and finding where we can gain leverage.” Last meeting: riverside military won 34-0 last year Location: riverside military academy

TOWNS COUNTY AT HEBRON CHRISTIAN TOWNS COUNTY INDIANS (8-A, DIVISION B) Coach: Jason roquemore Record: 0-6, 0-1 Last week: lost to riverside military academy 66-6

HEBRON CHRISTIAN LIONS (8-A, DIVISION B) Coach: Jeff saturday Record: 3-2, 1-0 Last week: beat lakeview academy 42-7

perhaps the most important thing Hebron christian has going for it Friday is that the team won’t have to load up the bus and take to the road for the first time in nearly a month, and for just the second time all season. “it’s just good to get home, and we’re looking forward to it,” Hebron coach Jeff saturday said. “we’re definitely excited about it and trying to build off last week (in a win over lakeview academy). we definitely want to be more aggressive for our fans. it’s really the first full-length home game we’ve had at home, since the (only other) one was disrupted by weather.” what that lions will try to build further off of Friday is a running game that has gotten plenty of production from the combination of senior winston gassant and junior demetrius rogers running behind a line anchored by senior Jack ihm, which has complemented quarterback colten gauthier Jack Ihm and the passing game. they will try to do so against a towns county team that has struggled to an 0-6 start, and has scored just 45 points on the season. but saturday has implored his team not to underestimate the indians, who are trying to establish a new culture behind first-year coach Jason roquemore. the last thing he wants is for his lions to get off to a slow start and allow towns county to build confidence. “they’ve gotten down (early) in their games, and that makes it hard,” saturday said. “starting fast is so important. other than the first two weeks, when we fell behind clinch county and Holy innocents’, we’ve done a pretty good job of that. but as we’ve seen, it’s hard to (have to) come back all the time because you expend a lot of energy. and the last thing we want to do is underestimate (towns county) because they’re going to battle.” Last meeting: Hebron won 47-0 last year Location: Hebron christian academy

WESLEYAN AT MOUNT VERNON WESLEYAN WOLVES (5-A) Coach: Franklin pridgen Record: 4-2, 1-2 Last week: lost to elca 54-17

MOUNT VERNON MUSTANGS (5-A) Coach: wayne dabbs Record: 3-3, 1-2 Last week: lost to Holy innocents’ 49-14

wesleyan is coming off losses to two of the best class a teams in the state, Holy innocents’ and eagle’s landing christian. the wolves, themselves ranked no. 2 in the power rankings prior to the region losses, would be unlikely to see elca again until late in the playoffs. “our guys are tired of losing,” head coach Franklin pridgen said. “while our record is good, we don’t like the taste that’s been in our mouths the last couple of weeks. we’re hungry to change that.” the wolves will need a sharp defensive effort against mount Vernon’s wide-open spread, led by quarterback blake Kytle and receiver andrew douglas. both are juniors and rank among the most prolific in their positions in the state. Kytle is second in yards, in any classification, and douglas is fourth. “they line up in some quirky formations,” pridgen said. “their coaching staff puts a lot of pressure on defenses. they put their best players in space and they get them the ball. Collin “they are definitely a pass first team. they are not a downhill run team, which is very different from Conduah the teams we’ve faced the last two weeks.” wesleyan’s defense features a number of players who have been effective bottling up offenses this season. Josh aspinwall (53 tackles), cardo gottlich (38), J.d. chipman (36) and tanner bivins (35) are the wolves’ top tacklers this season. senior two-way lineman collin conduah has been a major factor in the trenches as well. “we feel good about our match-ups, but it’s just a matter of, can we get lined up right and communicate effectively,” pridgen said. “it’s as much about organization as execution. they definitely want to confuse you.” mount Vernon’s defensive coordinator is a former wesleyan assistant and helped the wolves to a state title during his time at the school. “He’s a dear friend and it’s always a little strange to see him on the other sideline,” pridgen said. “i know he’ll have his guys coached up on defense.” When: Friday, 4 p.m. Last meeting: wesleyan won 34-19 last year Location: mount Vernon presbyterian

Meadowcreek inducts three into HOF From staff reports Three former athletes were inducted recently into the Meadowcreek Mustangs Hall of Fame in conjunction with the high school’s homecoming festivities. Wrestler Alex Paucar and football players David Hendrix and Cornell Thomas were the 2019 inductees. Paucar was the first athlete in Meadowcreek history to win an individual state championship in

1989. He won the 103-pound title as a freshman that season, then repeated his feat as a senior with the 125-pound state championship. He was third at state as a sophomore and runner-up as a junior. He also was a three-time county and area champion. Hendrix, an all-county football player and state champion hurdler in track and field, played college football at Georgia Tech and in the NFL for the San Diego Chargers from 1995-

97. In 1990, he won state track titles in both hurdles events. Thomas helped Meadowcreek’s football team to winning seasons his final two years, then played college football at West Georgia. He was Meadowcreek’s first NFL player with the Chargers, helping San Diego to the 1994 AFC title. He played pro football through 1997, when he was with the Scottish Claymores of the World League of American Football.

Mountain View’s Carter steps up for Georgia Tech By Stan Awtrey Staff Correspondent

Former Mountain View standout Malachi Carter seems to be taking advantage of his opportunity to embrace a more important role at Georgia Tech. The sophomore could be in a position to become the go-to receiver for the Yellow Jackets. Carter has gotten a lot of love from offensive coordinator Dave Patenaude since the spring, when he emerged as one of the team’s top potential targets. There was plenty of concern on The Flats last week when veteran receiver Jalen Camp was ruled out for the season. Even though he had a limited number of receptions in his three-year career, he had the speed and the physical gifts to be a major threat in the new Georgia Tech spread offense. Camp had been struggling with an injury all season and decided to have seasonending surgery a week ago. He will be able to return in 2020, but his absence left the Yellow Jackets with a big hole at wide receiver. And for a team that has struggled offensively, the fears were certainly warranted. But some of those worries were allayed on Saturday. Even though Georgia Tech lost a 38-22 decision to North Carolina, there were signs of an offensive pulse. Specifically, there was encouragement at receiver, where Carter and Adonicas Sanders both stepped up and showed they may able to ease the pain that came from losing Camp. Carter had three catches for 45 yards and one touchdown, a nifty 28-yarder in the end zone. Sanders had three catches for 67 yards, including a 39-yarder that was the longest catch of the day. “(Sanders) goes out there

and competes every single day,” Collins said. “Malachi was out there competing as well. It’s unfortunate that you lose key members to the team, but the next man has got to step up.” It was the second straight week that Carter has come up with three catches, matching his career high. He set a personal-best for yards in a game. His previous longest catch was 11 yards. “We have a great receiving corps and you could see it in the second half,” Carter said. “We started to pick it up a little bit, started to find out what we can do, how we can get down the field. We started to get more comfortable but it’s all going to come from working and getting more reps with James (Graham) starting so we can start off a lot faster than we did.” Graham got his first career start and appeared to grow in the role. He completed 11 of 24 passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns. Depending on how the staff deals with the nagging injuries sustained by Tobias Oliver and the shoulder issues of Lucas Johnson, Graham may become the starting quarterback. Graham effectively spread the ball around. He went to seven different targets for receptions and was active in trying to throw downfield. And he likes the possibilities he sees at among his receivers, including the slotback and the tight ends. “It is exciting to have guys like Malachi, AB (Ahmarean Brown), Adonicas and TD (Tyler Davis) and even the backup tight ends came in a little bit to show what they can do,” Graham said. “We are going to get better every day at practice and the connection is going to get better. It’s all just going to fall together.”

Georgia defensive end Justin Young tackles Notre Dame running back Tony Jones Jr. during the second half at Sanford Stadium earlier this season.

Young enjoying final season along Georgia defensive line By Stan Awtrey Staff Correspondent

Defensive end Justin Young is happy he remained a Georgia Bulldog. Young, a senior from Grayson High School, was planning to transfer to another school that gave him a better opportunity to play more. But he opted to stay at Georgia and is quite content with the decision. After being redshirted as a freshman, Young played nine games as a redshirt freshman, four games as a sophomore and one game as a junior. With the needle trending in the wrong direction, Young took a look at greener pastures before deciding to stay put for his final season of eligibility. “I love this school,” Young said. “When I first put my name in the transfer portal, I thought it was a good decision. Then I talked about my situation to my family, close friends, my teammates and coaches and I decided that sticking it out here was what was best for me.” Young said the final factor in his choice came down to education. His late grandfather, a strong influence

in his life, always stressed the value of an education and would have wanted him to stay put. “That affected me and my decision to stay,” he said. “It came down to me wanting to put as much value out on the field as I can. So, I decided from there I’d go to every practice and give it everything I had.” Young has played in all five games for the Bulldogs as a reserve. He has four tackles, half a sack and one quarterback pressure. He had two tackles, one for a loss, against Notre Dame. Young and his defensive colleagues are hard at work this week on preparing for South Carolina’s fast-paced attack. The Gamecocks like to push the accelerator and the Bulldogs must be ready to react. “At practice, our guys get periods where we were doing high tempo, right into the play, every 10 seconds – as much as possible,” Young said. “That’s definitely their go-to, trying to get defenses off-balance and stuff like that. At least that’s what we’ve seen in some team film, just them getting other teams’ defenses off balance. We’re trying to prevent that

as much as possible in this week’s practices.” Junior linebacker Walter Grant agreed with his teammate. “They’re really fast, high-tempo,” Grant said. “They throw a lot of different looks at you to try to catch you off guard. We treat every game like it’s a rival game. You’re going to get out best every time we step out onto the field.” Smart said the Bulldogs are focused on cutting down on penalties for Saturday’s home game against South Carolina. Georgia is averaging 69.2 yards in penalties per game. Georgia had 11 penalties for 107 yards last week against Tennessee. “Penalties are an interesting stat, because when you look at the history of football, the teams that win the most are not the least penalized,” Smart said. “A lot of times they’re the aggressive teams. You don’t want to be last, either. It hasn’t been a trait we’ve had, is undisciplined penalties, and we’ve got to prevent those.” The Bulldogs are off to a 5-0 start for the fifth consecutive season and have won 15 straight games against teams from the SEC Eastern Division.

Smart, Muschamp reunite in SEC clash Field Level Media

North Carolina defensive back Greg Ross (10) is blocked by Georgia Tech wide receiver Malachi Carter during the first half of last week’s game at Bobby Dodd Stadium.

There are numerous examples of SEC coaches whose paths have crossed during their careers. The relationship between Georgia’s Kirby Smart and South Carolina’s Will Muschamp is one of the more unique. Both head coaches are graduates of Georgia, former teammates who also coached together as assistants at two other programs. In fact, Muschamp gave Smart his first full-time coaching gig while the former was the defensive coordinator at Valdosta State. They joined forces once again as assistants on Nick Saban’s staff at LSU. The two will oppose each other Saturday when No. 3 Georgia (5-0, 2-0) hosts South Carolina (2-3, 1-2) in Athens. “Where we became closer was the opportunity he gave me to come to Valdosta State, and we worked

Georgia coach Kirby Smart and South Carolina coach Will Muschamp shake hands at the end of their game in Athens during the 2017 season. together there, and then we worked together at LSU, and those two years we spent in the same staff, we probably bonded more than we did while we were here (at Georgia),” Smart said. “He’s always been a very intense coach, a good football coach. I think he does a good job running the program, and that has allowed us to share information when

possible, when it’s not about scheme and it’s more about philosophy. He has been a good friend. I’ve got a lot of respect for him.” Muschamp feels the same. “We’ve been good friends for a long time, regardless of the circumstances, like when I was the defensive coordinator at Auburn and he was the defensive coordinator at Alabama,” Mus-

champ said. “There’s a lot of respect on both ends.” Georgia is rolling after throttling Tennessee last weekend 43-14. The Bulldogs’ offense — averaging 42.8 points per game — is led by quarterback Jake Fromm (86 of 111 for 1,076 yards, eight touchdowns and no interceptions) and D’Andre Swift (460 rushing yards, 7.0 per carry). One of Smart’s goals? Getting off to a faster start than the Bulldogs did last week at Tennessee, when the Volunteers jumped out to a 14-10 lead before Georgia roared back for the win. “Maybe we’ve got to do a better job as coaches of preparing them early in the game,” Smart said. “When you’re a good defense, I do think that you don’t see the same things. You see different stuff because they’re trying to generate plays against you, and that’s been the case for us, but we’ve got to do a better job starting off for sure.”

Third-down defense a focus for struggling Georgia Tech By Stan Awtrey Staff Correspondent

Third downs were not kind to the Georgia Tech defense last week, leaving defensive coordinator Andrew Thacker another item to add to his checklist in preparation for the road game at Duke. This week the Yellow Jackets spent a lot of time working on third-down defensive situations. In last week’s loss to North Carolina, Georgia Tech was able to put the Tar Heels in some difficult downand-distance situations, but couldn’t close the deal with a stop on third down. North Carolina was 11-for19 on third down and 1-for-1

on fourth downs. Six times Georgia Tech was unable to stop the Heels when it was third-and-9 or more. “I wish it was one thing. It was not,” Thacker said. “From play calling to the individual execution it wasn’t one thing. … We’re excited to get them in third-and-long. We had been good in third-and-long and that was disappointing. We hit the quarterback. We just couldn’t finish.” Duke quarterback Quentin Harris will be a challenge for the defense this week. He has thrown for 1,007 yards and 11 touchdowns and rushed for 342 yards and four touchdowns. He is the latest quarterback to

benefit from the tutelage of Duke coach David Cutcliffe. Duke averages 32.8 points, fifth-best in the conference. “It’s always a challenge,” Thacker said. “Even when the play breaks down, they can extend the play. We have to be very conscious of it.” The Yellow Jackets (1-4, 0-2 ACC) will try to stop a threegame losing streak against Duke (3-2, 1-1) on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. This is the first of a two-game road swing. Georgia Tech plays four of its final five games at home. This will be the 87th meeting between Duke and Georgia Tech. The two teams have played each year since 1933 and Georgia Tech has only

had more games against Auburn (92) and Georgia (113). Duke has won four of the last five meetings. One of the promises made by the new Georgia Tech regime when it was introduced last spring was the concept of creating turnovers. Picking off passes and knocking balls loose would become a calling card for the team. That’s why someone dubbed Geoff Collins as “The Minister of Mayhem” when he was coordinator at Florida. But that hasn’t exactly been the case this year. Through the first five game, Georgia Tech has created eight turnovers — five interceptions and three turnovers. Three

of those came in the season opener against Clemson, when they had little impact on the outcome. Collins understands the need for the turnovers. They not only stop the opposition, but can also flip the field and give the offense a better opportunity to score. “That’s what we talk about every single day,” Collins said. “Coach (Andrew) Thacker and the defensive staff do a great job. It’s every single meeting and every single day, coach Thacker talks about it. He points out strip attempts. He points out things we need to do to create turnovers.” Collins said the Temple team he coached a year ago was among

the top three in the country at creating turnovers and was adept at defensive score. “So that’s part of our DNA,” Collins said. It’s just going to take some time before it becomes ingrained in the culture at Georgia Tech. The defense has had to make numerous adjustments and is working with a near-new set of defensive linemen. There have been growing pains, but Collins said the idea to stress turnovers has never changed. “There’s been so many things that we’ve had to change and fix and adjust in this transformation and we don’t want anything that’s really important to get lost in the shuffle,” Collins said.

S’mores ’N Snores event sold out

By Taylor Denman

Duluth will host the third edition of the county’s only community camping event this weekend. S’mores ’N Snores returns to Rogers Bridge Park in Duluth and is already sold out of camping spots. “We attribute the success and popularity of this event to the uniqueness of being able experience nature and introduce children to camping while still being close to home,” event coordinator Kristin Edwards said. Attendees get to spend the night outdoors under the stars on Saturday eve-

ning and early Sunday morning. The event begins at 6 p.m. on Saturday and continues through 10 a.m. on Sunday. Participants can pitch their own tent or use a four-person campsite with a provided tent. Reservations are required for everyone to attend. Unregistered campers will not be permitted to take part in festivities. Registered campers will be provided wristbands at check-in and must be worn at all times. The festival will include live entertainment, large yard games, crafts, food trucks, a movie and plenty of free s’mores. Breakfast will also be available for purchase from a food truck. Camp-

ers are welcome to bring in their own food as well. A city spokesperson said there will also be a reptile exhibit. It’s the second year The Reptile Guys will host the exhibit including 12 snakes, iguanas and other reptiles. For registered campers the city offers a few guidelines on its event page. All campers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Electricity will not be provided. All attendees have to bring their own sleeping bags, pillows, blankets, bug spray, weather appropriate clothing, tooth brushes, tooth paste, flashlights or lanterns, folding chairs and bever-

ages and snacks. They have the option to bring air mattresses with them if they want, according to the city’s website. Duluth police officers will be on site to monitor any reckless behavior that puts oneself or others at risk, which the city says is ground for removal from the event without a refund. S’mores ’N Snores is a rain-or-shine event. Duluth officials said, in the case of severe weather, the event may be canceled with little notice and a rain date will be provided. No refunds will be issued. For more information, visit www.

duluth will host the third edition of the county’s only community camping event on saturday and sunday at rogers bridge park. ♦ special photo: dustin gray

Former Daily Post columnist Susan Larson publishes book By Curt Yeomans

By Curt Yeomans


Gwinnett County residents can get an up-close look at a SWAT truck, a helicopter and a firetruck this weekend. The county’s annual Public Safety Fall Festival will be held from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday at Coolray Field, which is located at 2500 Buford Drive in Lawrenceville. The event will give residents an opportunity to meet and talk to police officers, firefighters and paramedics. “The festival celebrates the partnership between public safety and the community — and serves as a fun way for citizens to interact with fire and police personnel in a non-emergency environment,” county officials said in an announcement about the event. There are will public safety vehicles including a SWAT truck, fire department ladder truck, ambulance and a helicopter. Police and firefighters will also offer tips on crime prevention, personal safety, injury prevention and fire safety.

A former Gwinnett Daily Post columnist has compiled some of her most popular columns into a new book and she’ll be in Lilburn this weekend to promote it. Susan Larson, who wrote columns for the Daily Post for 17 years from 1999 until 2015, has released the collection of what she described as 75 of her “most popular columns” in “A Word’s Worth: One Column at a Time.” She will be signing copies of the book from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Saturday at the Lilburn library branch, which is attached to Lilburn City Hall and located at 4817 Church St. “Most of the 75 columns were written about people and events in Gwinnett County,” Larson said.
