    Olive Horrell does not look impressed.

    The 97-year old is holding a Project Cardboard viewer, Google's DIY virtual-reality headset. It resembles an old viewfinder toy.

    "This is old fashioned stuff! Way before your time," she says.

    She puts on headphones, holds the viewer up to her eyes, and her jaw immediately drops. Spinning around in her wheelchair, Olive excitedly shouts and points at things only she can see. When the virtual reality tour is done, Olive is momentarily speechless.

    "There's no way I can understand that," she says finally. "The horse. I was so sure I could touch the horse."

    Google employees have succeeded at blowing Olive's mind for the sixth time today.

    Olive is on a special VIP tour of Google's Mountain View campus organized by Wish of a Lifetime, a nonprofit that grants senior citizens' wishes.

    Google cofounder Sergey Brin is one of the group's biggest individual donors.

    It took her three years to decide, but Olive finally settled on her wish: She wanted to see the future.

    Olive grew up on a farm in rural Montana. She had no electricity, didn't know what a radio was, and got around by horse and buggy. She moved to California at age 8, lived through the Great Depression, and has witnessed an incredible amount of technological change in her lifetime.

    She still remembers the first computer she saw. It used punch cards and was about 3-by-3 feet.

    Now she's at Google, one of the largest and most innovative technology companies in the world, talking to top engineers about The Cloud. She wants to know what it is and why it's "up there."

    Earlier in the day, Olive took a ride in one of Google's self-driving cars. She liked it, but was more impressed by her visit to the Google Doodle department, where she helped color her own custom Doodle with a stylus on a touchscreen computer.

    A tour of the campus wound past the volleyball court, a mobile pizza oven, racks of colorful Google bikes and the "Chrometober fest" fall party. Some "Greyglers," older Google employees, joined her for a sit-down lunch at one of 22 on-campus kitchens that feed Google's 20,000 local employees.

    Everything reminded Olive of a college. "You don't have to grow up," she said.

    Once an avid traveler who took kayaking expeditions and went mountain climbing in Nepal, Olive was blown away by Google Translate. She tested out the Liftwear spoon, designed to help people with tremors feed themselves. Then Olive watched in disbelief as Google Photos' face detection figured out a baby in a photo was the same person as a thirteen-year old girl.

    "Push a button and you have history right in front of you," she said. "This is very mind-boggling for me."

    For the Google employees and others who deal with this technology every day, it was an opportunity to see modern technology through fresh eyes. A reminder of how amazing it all really is.

    For Olive, the highlight of the day wasn't futuristic technology, but thanking someone for an act of kindness.

    Wish of a Lifetime founder Jeremy Bloom doesn't drop in on every wish -- the organization grants about one wish a day. Granted wishes have included reuniting three sisters, all in their hundreds, and taking a Mississippi woman to see the ocean for the first time in her life.

    But Bloom couldn't pass up a trip to Google to meet Olive.

    A former two-time Olympic skier and NFL player who now runs a tech company in Arizona, Bloom founded Wish of a Lifetime years ago, inspired by his own grandparents.

    "You're such a gentle soul, it's just been lovely to meet you," an emotional Olive told Bloom, holding his hand. "Most of the time we aren't seen, as you know."

    She thanked him for the day, a wish three years in the making that did not disappoint.

    "Certainly in my wildest dreams, I couldn't conceive of what I saw today."

    Marco Rubio defended his heavily criticized absences from nearly one third of Senate votes this year, saying his presidential campaign requires him to be out on the trail, and dismissed suggestions that his call for delinquent federal workers to be fired was hypocritical.

    "Everyone needs to run their own campaign," Rubio told CNN's Jamie Gangel in an interview that aired Sunday on "State of the Union." "I'm not missing votes because I'm on vacation."

    Rubio, who has the worst voting attendance record in the Senate this year, has been attacked by his 2016 rivals over his voting record, especially front-runner Donald Trump, who called him a "lightweight senator" in a tweet last month. Scrutiny over Rubio's shoddy attendance record increased earlier this month when the Florida senator missed a key vote on defense spending to campaign in New Hampshire.

    Rubio also explained remarks he made on the Senate floor this week when he said federal workers who don't do their jobs should be fired.

    "Someone might say you're not showing up, you're not doing your job by voting," Gangel said.

    "Not true, not true," Rubio said.

    "You don't think you're in a glass house?" Gangel asked.

    "Voting is not the only part of the Senate job," Rubio said. "I mean, the most important thing a senator does is constituent service. We're still involved in looking out for Florida's issues."

    Rubio said Senate votes are important, but added that as a member of the Intelligence Committee, he was updated on recent briefings.

    "I was just there this Tuesday," Rubio said. "I got fully briefed and caught up on everything that's happening in the world. I'm fully aware."

    Haitian voters faced lengthy ballots featuring 54 presidential hopefuls and a slew of legislative and municipal candidates on Sunday as they selected leaders they hope might be able to lift the nation out of chronic poverty and turbulence.

    The presidential field is so crowded and confusing that there's little clarity about who might be leading. Polls have been unreliable and contradictory.

    Voting was relatively orderly across the nation of 10 million people, although there were some signs of confusion and logistical problems.

    At a voting center in Port-au-Prince's Martissant slum, an elections supervisor repeatedly yelled at dozens of people trying to force their way in. "No voting two times!" People shouted back that they were being prevented from voting once.

    "I'm here to vote, and they are trying to stop me," complained Varnel Polycard, a vendor of phone chargers, who walked away fuming.

    Each of the country's more than 120 parties can send monitors to polling places, where they get their own voting done early.

    At a polling center in the Petionville district of Port-au-Prince, hundreds of monitors shoved one another in a voting line and masked police gave the unruliest partisans in line short zaps with a Taser.

    But balloting was relatively tranquil in many parts of the country.

    Watch: Calvin Hughes speaks exclusively with Haiti's current president

    While the gritty district of Cite Soleil suffered from pre-election violence, it appeared to have the busiest voting center in the Port-au-Prince area.

    "Nothing can scare me from trying to see my country develop and see if Haiti can get better for my grandchildren," said Rosianne Jean after casting her votes in the deeply poor area of shacks and garbage-lined canals.

    In the Delmas 3 area, Associated Press journalists found onlookers gathered around the battered corpse of a man wearing wristbands of the political party of President Michel Martelly. Those in the crowd denied any political motive: They said he was a pig thief killed by a mob.

    The continuing appeal of former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide was on display as over 1,500 people greeted him when he arrived at a voting center, many chanting "Aristide is our blood." The former leader has mostly been living quietly since returning after seven years in exile following his 2004 ouster but has lately urged support for the candidate of the party he founded decades ago, Fanmi Lavalas.

    He accompanied party candidate Maryse Narcisse to vote, but some Aristide loyalists in the crowd said they were backing ex-senator Moise Jean-Charles.

    Whoever wins the inevitable Dec. 27 presidential runoff faces numerous challenges, including spurring the country's chronically sputtering economy and weaning it off dependence of foreign aid donors, who are largely funding this year's roughly $70 million three-round electoral process.

    Among the best-known names on the ballot is Jude Celestin, a former head of the state-run construction company who was the government-backed candidate in the 2010 race. That time, he was eliminated from a runoff after his reported second-place finish was challenged by foreign observers who complained of irregularities.

    Others include Martelly's pick, Jovenel Moise, a political newcomer who has called for restoration of Haiti's army and pledges to expand the agriculture sector, and Jean-Charles, a sharp critic of Martelly who brands himself as a voice for Haiti's poor and disenfranchised.

    Final results are not expected until late November, according to the country's Provisional Electoral Council, though a council spokesman said partial results might be announced in 10 days.

    It is more than 5½ years since Haiti suffered an earthquake that was one of the worst natural disasters of modern times. Roughly 5.8 million voters are registered to cast ballots for the next president, 129 lawmakers and a slew of local offices.

    A South Carolina man is facing charges after authorities say they found 7,000-10,000 guns stored on his property.

    Chesterfield County sheriff's deputies arrested Brent Nicholson, 51, of Pageland Saturday. The guns were found stacked in his house, a nearby storage building, a liquor store he runs with his father and at his parents' home, The Charlotte Observer in North Carolina reported.

    “There were so many guns we quit counting after a while,” Sheriff Jay Brooks said.

    "This investigation is far from over."

    Besides the guns, authorities also found crossbows, ammunition, taxidermed animal heads and scores of chainsaws.

    The sheriff said it appeared Nicholson was accumulating weapons, not selling them.

    "There’s no evidence that he even used them,” Brooks said. “There’s no evidence that he was selling them –- he just wanted them. His house looked like that hoarders program on TV."

    Brooks said Nicholson may have stolen some of the guns but most likely sought most from other thieves.

    WBTV reported Nicholson had been arrested and charged with trafficking opium and heroin earlier in the week in Union County. The Charlotte TV station said deputies reportedly had gone to serve him with a subpoena Friday and noticed what appeared to be stolen goods in his front yard.

    Florida wildlife officials are considering shutting down the statewide bear hunt at the end of the second day after a higher than expected number of bears had been killed.

    The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said 293 bears had been killed by midday Sunday. Officials capped the limit at 320, but hunters have 12 hours to have their bear weighed so numbers are still coming in. The agency will monitor the numbers closely and make a decision by 9 p.m. Sunday.

    "Yes, we are leaning toward that. The numbers look like we're probably going to have to consider shutting it down tonight," said Executive Director Nick Wiley.

    Officials shut down the central and east Panhandle regions after the hunt's first day Saturday. They said 112 bears were killed in the Panhandle region by midday Sunday, nearly triple the 40 kill limit for that area. In the central region, 139 bears were killed.

    Authorities said they were not alarmed by the high numbers, saying it's an indication the bear population is higher than they thought.

    "From a biological sustainable population perspective, none of these numbers are worrisome to us, we have large growing bear populations," said FWC's Thomas Eason.

    More than 3,200 hunters purchased permits to participate, including 1970s rocker Ted Nugent and Liesa Priddy, a rancher and Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission member who voted to approve the new hunts.

    The controversial hunt was approved by the commission earlier this year after much debate. In the end, the members said the black bear population had grown to 3,500 — up from a few hundred in the 1970s — and presented a safety problem.

    But critics say that number is outdated. Activists said the state should instead focus on trash management and curbing the smell of food in garbage and staged protests around the state this weekend.

    "Yesterday was a horrific day of watching these incredible creatures be slaughtered and in looking in the photos showing up there have been lactating females so that means there are babies that have now been orphaned out there," said Bevan. "They should have counted those babies as dead also."

    Wildlife officials have said the hunt was timed so the youngest cubs are 8 or 9-months, which they say is old enough to survive on their own. Authorities said they did not have figures on how many lactating bears were killed.

    Authorities issued one citation for a hunter who took a bear in the 40-pound range, well below the weight limit and issued a warning for another who killed an 88-pound bear. They're also investigating a few cases of hunters in the central region who appeared to have baited bears in violation of the rules.

    Public records review shows the number of citations issued to Floridians for bear-related offenses has been paltry.

    A review of Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission records by Orlando radio station WMFE shows that the state agency only issued 10 citations last year for offenses like leaving food or garbage outside that could attract the animals. By comparison, the agency received 6,600 calls about nuisance bears.

    Thirty-two other states also allow black bear hunts.

    Paul Fitzgerald, a 16-year-old high school football player, said he saw a bear's head from a tree stand where he was stationed in Lake County and hit the 175-pound female bear in the shoulders.

    "I got lucky," Fitzgerald told the Orlando Sentinel. "I was born into it, so it just came natural."

    His dad and a friend helped him take the bear to a weighing station.

    Wildlife officials also cited favorable weather and prepared hunters for the high numbers.

    "Bears haven't been hunted in 21 plus years in Florida so they're relatively naive. I also think hunters went out and did a lot of scouting and were ready," Eason said.

    Officials set up 33 stations where hunters must record each kill within 12 hours. Penalties for violating bear hunting rules range from a $50 fine to $500 and 60 days in prison. Hunters cannot use dogs or bait to lure the bears, and must only kill bears that weigh more than 100 pounds and that don't have cubs present. Among the weapons allowed: shotguns, bows, pistols, revolvers and crossbows.

    Authorities are investigating after a 35-year-old man was killed during a fight at a St. Petersburg strip club.

    Pinellas County Sheriff's Office say a patron and a staff member got into a fight at Mermaids Gentlemen's Club early Saturday morning when the patron's friend David Yost stepped in.

    Authorities said Yost also started hitting the staffer.

    Several other club employees jumped into the fray to assist the staffer. It's unclear how large the fight grew, but deputies said Yost was breathing but unresponsive on the ground when they arrived. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

    Detectives said the fight initially started because the unidentified patron owed the bar money.

    Authorities have not identified anyone else involved in the brawl.

    The Dan Campbell-led Dolphins continued their dominance with a throttling of the Houston Texans.

    Miami won 44-26.

    The Dolphins came out swinging and jumped out to an early lead, thanks to record-setting first half performances from Ryan Tannehill, Lamar Miller and Jarvis Landry.

    Tannehill became the first Dolphins quarterback to throw 3 touchdowns in a game since 2004, when AJ Feely accomplished the feat against the Buffalo Bills. He also finished the first half at 17 of 17 and a perfect quarterback rating.

    Two of those three touchdowns were aimed at Jarvis Landry, who shook off several tacklers on his way to a 50-yard touchdown.

    Lamar Miller contributed with 175 yards on 14 carries, most of the yards coming from an 85-yard touchdown run, the second longest run in team history.

    The defense came to play too. Reshad Jones took an interception back 30 yards for a touchdown, his second interception returned for a touchdown in two weeks.

    Miller and Landry didn’t see the field in the second half, and the Texans took advantage. They climbed back and made a contest out of the game, but the stellar first half from the Dolphins decided this one by halftime.

    The Dolphins face a tough matchup next week as they head into Foxboro to take on the undefeated Patriots.

  • 10/25/15--15:40: Canes fire Al Golden
  • The Miami Hurricanes have fired head coach Al Golden.

    Athletic director Blake James announced that assistant coach Larry Scott will take over as interim head coach for the remainder of the 2015 season.

    James said, "Coach Golden has led our program through some very difficult times and has done so with class, integrity, and a true desire to see our students succeed on the field, in the classroom, and in the community."

    Golden was 32-25 in his five seasons at Miami.

    He led the Canes to bowl games in 2013 and 2014.

    The final straw for Golden was a 58-0 loss to Clemson, the worst in school history.

    A man accused of shooting a deputy Saturday night on Stock Island has been taken into custody, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office said Sunday.

    Monroe County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said Deputy Josh Gordon and another deputy attempted a traffic stop on a car suspected in a robbery in Key West when Gordon was shot.

    The bullet struck the deputy's chest, which was protected by his bulletproof vest.

    Gordon was then taken to Lower Keys Medical Center, where he was treated and released.

    Herrin said the deputies spotted the car near the intersection of Third Avenue and Sunshine Street on Stock Island. When they attempted to stop the car, the suspect opened fire. The shooter then fled the scene.

    The suspect has been identified as Timothy Thomas. The 25-year-old was suspected in a robbery that took place at a Key West home Oct. 5.

    Herrin said Thomas has an extensive criminal history.

    "You cannot shoot one of our officers and walk away from it," Sheriff Rick Ramsay said. "We will catch him. It is just a matter of time."

    Deputies said Thomas was at hiding out at a home in the 1700 block of Von Phister Street in Key West. The Monroe County Sheriff's Office and Key West police set up a perimeter around the house and cleared neighbors from the area.

    Police negotiators spoke with Thomas over the phone and convinced him to give himself up. Deputies said he came out of the house with his hands up and was taken into custody just after 6 p.m. Sunday.

    Thomas had two gunshot wounds when he exchanged fire with deputies the night before, the Sheriff's Office said.

    "We were not going to let this guy remain at large where he was a threat to law enforcement and to the community," Ramsay said. "Our officers, with the assistance of many other agencies, worked tirelessly chasing down leads until we got him. The teamwork we have between agencies and with the community helped resolve this situation without any further violence."

    A Florida Keys woman was arrested Sunday after stabbing her sister with a knife, Monroe County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said.

    The victim told a deputy that she and her sister, Courtney Lozada, 22, of Stock Island, had been out drinking Saturday night. She said they returned home early Sunday morning and got into an argument, and Lozada picked up a large kitchen knife and stabbed her in the forearm.

    A friend drove Lozada's sister to a hospital emergency room, where she was treated for a stab wound.

    Lozada was arrested on a felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

    A South Florida woman accused of stabbing her neighbor to death arrived later at a pawn shop in blood-stained clothing, deputies said.

    Debra Kincy, 63, came to the pawn shop to sell rings that belonged to her neighbor, Charlotte Nicholas, who was stabbed more than 70 times, Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Gina Carter said.

    After selling the rings Oct. 20, Kincy called 911 to report Nicholas' death, Carter said.

    "I went in and said, 'Charlotte, Charlotte,' and I didn't hear anything, and I walked toward her kitchen because she was doing some dishes there earlier and her body was there on the kitchen floor," Kincy said the day she reported the stabbing, according to an arrest report.

    Carter said Kincy had been verbally and physically harassing Nicholas. Carter said the discord between them centered, at least partly, on some jewelry that Kincy had stolen from her.

    Eventually, Kincy confessed to having an argument with Nicholas that turned physical and ended in the kitchen, where the body was found, the report said.

    Kincy was arrested Saturday. She faces charges of murder, false ownership and dealing in stolen property.

    Police are searching for a man who stole a sport utility vehicle while a 5-year-old boy was sitting in the back seat.

    The theft was reported about 8:15 a.m. Monday while Albert Sorribes was dropping off his twin boys at the Kiddy Academy day care on Quail Roost Drive.

    Miami-Dade police said Sorribes left the engine running to go into the day care. A man got inside the SUV and drove off.

    The theft was captured on surveillance video.

    Police said the man realized there was a child in the back seat, pulled over and ran away.
