[PETROS GIANNAKOURIS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]By Robert BurnsThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Presi-dent Donald Trumps decision to suspend major U.S. mili-tary exercises in South Korea could weaken allied defenses, depending on the length and scope of the hiatus. But the potential for diplomatic damage seems even greater.The United States, South Korea and Japan were making a public display of solidarity Thursday over the outcome of Trumps summit with North Koreas Kim Jong Un. But analysts and former officials with experience in U.S.Asia policy were shaken by Trumps failure to inform the Asian allies „ or even the Pen-tagon „ before mothballing the military maneuvers.Those exercises are criti-cally important because they are deterrence,Ž said Chuck Hagel, a former defense secretary in the Obama administration. He welcomed Trumps willingness to talk to Kim but worried that the president has underestimated the complications he has introduced for the Pentagon by suspending the military drills. The exercises in ques-tion go well beyond routine training, which apparently is unaffected by Trumps decision. Large-scale exer-cises are done to ensure that evolving tactics, procedures and plans can be carried out smoothly and that U.S. and South Korean forces are in sync. They also are a means of showing allied solidarity, which is part of the psy-chology of deterring enemy attack.The U.S. has stationed combat troops in South Korea since the Korean War ended in 1953 with an armistice and no peace treaty. The more than 28,000 U.S. forces serve as a military tripwire against North Korean aggression. The next major exercise with South Korea is known as Ulchi Freedom Guardian; last years version was held for 11 days in August and involved about 17,500 U.S. troops.The U.S. has insisted these kinds of drills are defensive measures to demonstrate U.S. and South Korean preparedness to respond promptly to any aggression by the North. But when Trump announced his decision to halt them, he characterized them as pro-vocativeŽ and as war games.ŽThose are literally the North Korean and Chinese talking points,Ž said Christine Wormuth, the Pentagons top policy offi-cial from 2014 to 2016. Trump said they cost a fortune,Ž though even the Pentagon, which foots the bill for U.S. participation in all such maneuvers, has been unable to say what they cost.Defense Secretary Jim Mattis office on Wednesday sent out a request to military commands for cost estimates for the main military exercises held on and around the Korean Peninsula, according to officials who spoke about the request on condition of anonymity to discuss internal communications. In the past, some estimates for smaller exercises have been about $2 million, while some larger ones have cost $15 million or more „ all relatively minor expenses for a department with a budget now exceeding $700 billion.Michael Green, who was Asia director on the National Security Council staff during the George W. Bush administration, said the likely damage from suspending drills is multiplied by Trumps failure to inform South Korean and Japanese officials in advance and his focus on cost-savings. This was then compounded, in Greens view, by Trumps dubious assertion on Twitter that North Korea no longer poses a nuclear threat.The No. 1 problem with this, geopolitically, is that it suggests to our allies that we are just incompetent, that we dont recognize the threat,Ž Green said.Harry Harris, the retired Navy admiral and former commander of U.S. forces throughout the Pacific, said Thursday he believes the Norths nuclear weapons still pose a threat, but he endorsed Trumps decision to suspend U.S. military exercises.We should give major exercises a pause to see if Kim Jong Un is serious about his part of the negotiations,Ž Harris said at a Senate hearing to consider his nomination to be U.S. ambassador in Seoul. Harris said the suspension of drills provides breathing spaceŽ for progress in nego-tiating North Koreas nuclear disarmament.Without mentioning that South Korea and Japan were not consulted before Trump suspended drills, Harris said such decisions should not be taken unilaterally.Deferral based on potential deterrence a dubious dealTrumps halt of war games could weaken defenses in KoreaMarines of South Korea, right, and the U.S. aim their weapons near amphibious assault vehicles during U.S.-South Korea joint landing military exercises as part of the annual joint military exercise Foal Eagle between the two countries, March 2015, in Pohang, South Korea.

A second building, a billboard and an electrical box were all vandalized in the area of Highland Avenue and the service road.Several other businesses and properties were vandalized, including delivery trucks at Clermont Furniture and Enterprise Rental, the Scates Realty sign and a wall at Hillside Villas.Police caught a break on June 13 when they received a call about a suspicious aban-doned vehicle on a public road. The responding officer noticed that the vehicle was parked near recent vandalism and had several spray paint cans in plain view in the back seat.The officer waited for the owner to return to the car and conducted a traffic stop a short time later. The driver, who is the registered owner, consented to a search of the vehicle, which turned up evidence tying him to the vandalism.Kobe Keene, 19, of Grove-land, reportedly confessed to all the vandalism involving VIRUS."

DAILYCOMMERCIAL.COM Friday, July 18, 2014 | 1 Dr. Jorge A. SalazarDr. Jorge A. Salazar, 82, of Eustis, died Tuesday June 12, 2018. Hamlin & Hilbish Funeral Directors, Eustis, FL. TodaysServices A4 Friday, June 15, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comThe process will continue over the next five years until all students are equipped.By year five, the district expects to have 30,000 Chromebooks in circula-tion at a cost of about $7.6 million.The district piloted the use of Chromebooks in classrooms in the 2017-18 school year. Every AP human geog-raphy class was given a set for students. Lessons were uploaded to the computers, and students used Google Apps for Education to complete assignments and collaborate. Teachers were able to monitor their work, give feedback and assess each students contribution to a project, according to school officials.Administrators deemed the Digital Discovery Classroom pilot so suc-cessful that schools began to purchase Chromebooks for other classrooms. The district went from 300 Chromebooks in Decem-ber to having more than 5,000 this month.We are not trying to replace instruction by the teacher, were trying to amplify it, said Duane Weeks, the districts supervisor of Instruc-tional Technology. We are giving a technological advantage to the teacher. There is no computer program going along with this to teach kids. Instead, this is a way to engage students, to allow them to work better together using contemporary tools to solve real-world problems.ŽUnder the old plan, computers stayed in the classroom, but under the five-year plan, students will be assigned a Chromebook to use in classes and at home.They will be able to access all of their Google classrooms, textbooks and Skyward so they can keep track of their grades. They also will be able to complete and submit assignments electronically, and they will have access to the Google calendar and a to-do list to help with time management.The district thinks the Chromebooks will prove useful during standard-ized testing as well.Currently, students take turns using a limited number of computers at each school to com-plete standardized tests. The new Chromebooks, however, are equipped to administer tests, with a touchscreen model available for younger students.We will reclaim instructional time through this,Ž Weeks said. We wont have to shut down media centers and computer labs for months to get through the test-ing cycle. More students can test at once and this will give more time back to the teacher for instruction.ŽProtections will be put in place and every student will be required to complete a Digital Citizenship course to help support safe internet use, officials said.The district will pay $230 for each standard model Chromebook and $270 for the touchscreen version with the use of state Digital Classroom Plan funds and district capital funds. A technology fee of $32 per student will be assessed for schools that imple-ment the program during the 2018-19 school year. The fee will assist in the refresh and maintenance needed due to normal wear and tear.District officials say the fees could bring in about $866,000, but they proj-ect that up to 50 percent of students won't be able to pay it.Schools with existing take-home-technology programs may charge a different fee depending on the models they cur-rently use. LAPTOPSFrom Page A3 And if you look at the price and at the price of one firefighter getting cancer, theres no comparison. The cost effectiveness was there.ŽAccording to informa-tion provided by the city, based on research done by the University of Miami, firefighter cancer rates are becoming the leading cause of death within the fire service.Because of that, industry experts have recommended the gear as one way to decrease the chances ofexposure to cancer-causing contaminants that are spread to uncovered parts of the bodyby way of sweatandby being absorbed through the skin aftersitting on the body for prolonged periodsof time.He said amongthe most prevalent forms of cancer plaguing firefighters are thyroidand bladdercan-cers since sweat tends to run down the body.Nader said after fight-ing a blaze, firefighters, in addition to switching out of contaminated gear,are also using wet wipes to clean off exposed parts of their bodies.Robert GonzoŽ Gonzales, a sales manager with Municipal Equip-ment Company LLC who is producing the gear as of 2018, said he is finding that firefighters are thrilled because it is about one-third the weight of old gear and dries much faster.Gonzalescalled the new technology"a game changer."These suits will dry in one-and-a-half hours versus a day-and-a-half, plus they are much lighter and safer,Ž Gonzales said.Gonzales, at the Mount Dora station Thursday to demonstrate to fire-fighters how to get in and out of the suits properly to maximize safety and lessen exposure possibil-ities, said a key practice he recommends to avoid overlooking essential steps in the suiting up or decontamination process is buddy checks.ŽThe suits, he said, will do the rest."You wantto look at your hoods, your gloves and make sure you are covered completely and thatyouhavea good seal," Gonzalesreminded firefighters throughout the training.Nader said many stations in Florida and in other states are moving towards the new technology.He said he hopes that future datawill prove thenew gear decreased cancer deaths."Hopefullyin the next5-10 years, we'll be assured these preven-tion measures saved fire fighters' lives," Nader said.

[TOM BENITEZ/ CORRESPONDENT] There are significant gaps in educational attainment that must be closed „ specifically, gaps linked to race and ethnicity,Ž Lumina said in a report on Florida released in February. Because educational attainment beyond high school has become the key determinant of economic opportunity, closing these gaps is crucial.ŽOn the positive side, the new report puts Florida at the front of the nation in nearly every category for degree-attainment for Latino residents. Florida has the smallest achievement gap between Latino and white adults „10 per-centage points „ of any state in the survey.Its 34.2 percent degree-attainment rate was second among the states surveyed, trailing only New Hampshire, which has a much smaller Latino population.The attainment rate for Latino adults has increased by 8 percentage points since 2000, the second largest gain in the survey, trailing only New York.Florida and New York stand out as states with large Latino populations that have improved the most,Ž the Education Trust report said. The data was less posi-tive for black adults in Florida. The 28.8 percent attainment rate ranked 25th among the states surveyed, trailing some of its Southern peers, including Texas ranked 14th at 32.2 percent and Virginia ranked 12th at 32.8 percent.The attainment rate for black adults increased by 9 percentage points since 2000, tying Florida with South Carolina for the 10th spot in the rankings.Floridas achievement gap between black and white adults of 15.5 percentage points put it in the middle of the states, which ranged from a low of 5 percent in West Virginia to a high of 23.5 percent in Connecticut. However, the report noted that the small achievement gap in some states was more reflective of a low degree-attain-ment rate for white adults as well as black residents.The Education Trusts report was based on U.S. Census data, including the annual American Community Surveys. It defined degree attainment as adults between the ages of 25 and 64 who held an associate, bachelors or graduate degree. The Education Trust is based in Washington, D.C.

[CLIFF OWEN/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE] Clinton and her supporters, on the other hand, have complained that Comeys later announcement, shortly before the election, that the investigation was being reopened badly hurt her chances to defeat her Republican rival.But the nuanced findings provide no conclusions to support either Republicans or Democrats who want to claim total vindication.The inspector generals report concluded that Comey, who announced in the summer of 2016 that Clinton would not be charged with any crime in the email probe, departed from normal Justice Department pro-tocol numerous times.But it also says, We found no evidence that the conclusions by the prosecutors were affected by bias or other improper considerations; rather, we determined that they were based on the pros-ecutors assessment of the facts, the law and past department practice.ŽTrump is certain to try to use the report to validate his firing of Comey last year, an act that is central to special counsel Robert Muellers investigation into whether the presi-dent sought to obstruct justice.But the report will likely deny the president a favored talking point that the FBI favored Clinton over him and that its leaders were driven by politics. COMEYFrom Page A1The attorney generals office detailed what it said was a closely coordinated effort by Trumps campaign and the foundation to burnish his political image by giving out big grants of others people money to veterans organizations during the run-up to the Iowa caucuses, the first presidential nomi-nating contest of 2016.The foundations grants made Mr. Trump and the campaign look charitable and increased the candidates profile to Republican primary voters and among impor-tant constituent groups,Ž Democratic Attorney General Barbara Under-woods lawsuit said.It accused the foundation of improper and extensive political activity, repeated and willful self-dealing transactions, and failure to follow basic fiduciary obligations.ŽUnderwood referred her findings to the IRS and the Federal Election Commission for pos-sible further action. IRS and FEC representatives declined to comment. In exchange for tax-exempt status, charities are required to follow rules that include a strict prohibition against involvement in political campaigns.In tweets, Trump vowed: I wont settle this case!ŽHe said former Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who started the investiga-tion, never had the guts to bring this ridiculous caseŽ before resigning last month after being accused of physi-cally abusing women he dated. Schneiderman has denied the allegations. Schneiderman began investigating the charity in 2016, after The Wash-ington Post reported that the foundations spending personally benefited the presidential candidate. Some of the expenditures uncovered by The Post were cited in the lawsuit. In a handwritten note, Trump directed that $100,000 in foundation money go to settle legal claims against Trumps Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, the lawsuit said.The foundation also paid $158,000 to resolve a lawsuit over a prize for a hole-in-one contest at Trump National Golf Club in Briarcliff Manor, New York; $10,000 to buy a 6-foot portrait of Trump at a charity auction; and $5,000 for advertisements published in the programs for charitable events. The ads promoted Trumps hotels.The suit also singled out a $32,000 payment that the foundation made to satisfy a Trump company pledge to contribute to a land-preservation group.After New Yorks attorney general began investigating, Trumps business empire reimbursed the foundation for various payments and returned the painting to the foundation.Despite the prohibi-tion on political activity, Trumps foundation cut a $25,000 check in 2013 to Republican Florida Attorney General Pam Bondis re-election cam-paign, the lawsuit notes. After a watchdog group complained to the IRS in 2016, Trump reimbursed the foundation and paid a $2,500 fine.Then Trumps foundation was co-optedŽ by his presidential cam-paign, the lawsuit says.

He has been released from the hospital and is back home with his family recuperating, police said.Jeffrey Ezell, Dillans uncle, showed up at the scene and talked to reporters hours after the shooting. He said there are no real guns in the home that Dillan shared with his disabled mother, Dianna, and his grandmother just a few blocks away from the store.He was basically an unarmed man.

By Mae AndersonThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Com-peting bids from Comcast and Disney for the bulk of Twenty-First Century Fox come as the media landscape changes and companies get more involved in both creating and distributing content.X-Men and other movies from Foxs studios would help beef up Disneys upcoming streaming service. Com-cast, already a major cable operator, would get a larger portfolio of cable channels including FX and National Geographic.Comcasts $65 billion cash bid Wednesday is higher than what many analysts were expecting and tops Disneys all-stock offer, valued at $52.5 billion when it was made in December.GBH Insights analyst Dan Ives said Comcasts price speaks to Comcast really wanting these key assets.Ž Disney is expected to make a counter offer.Each bid raises different regulatory concerns, though this weeks approval of AT&Ts takeover of Time Warner signals that regulators might have a hard time stopping mega-mergers.Heres how the compa-nies would match up: MoviesFoxs film studios, with Avatar,Ž X-Men, the Fantastic Four and Dead-pool, would pair well with Disneys studios. This includes reuniting the Marvel franchises X-Men and the Avengers, as some of those characters were already in Foxs hands when Disney bought Marvel in 2009. Disney also has the Muppets, Pixar and Star Wars.ŽIn fact, Fox and Disney might pair too well, as far as regulatory concerns go. BTIG analyst Richard Greenfield estimates the combined studios make up 45 percent of world-wide box office revenue. A larger studio could use its power to keep its movies in more theaters longer and squeeze out rival movies.Comcasts Universal movie business has such franchises as Jurassic Park.Ž The Fox properties would expand Comcasts reach, though the company would have just 25 percent of the box office with Fox added, according to figures from Box Office Mojo. TelevisionFoxs TV productions include The Americans,Ž This Is Us,Ž Modern Family,Ž and The Simp-sons.Ž Its networks include FX Networks and National Geographic. The Fox businesses would pair well with Disney chan-nels like ABC, the Disney Channel and Freeform. Modern FamilyŽ already airs on ABC.Comcast owns NBCU-niversal, including the NBC broadcast network, CNBC and USA. Comcast might run into regulatory problems because the cable opera-tor would control a larger portfolio of content along with its distribution. However, a federal judge on Tuesday approved a similar attempt by DirecTV owner AT&T to buy Time Warner. Regardless of which company prevails in buying Fox, the Fox tele-vision network and some cable channels including Fox News will stay with media mogul Rupert Murdoch. SportsDisneys deal includes getting Foxs regional sports network, which shows hometown sports in several cities including New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, Cleveland, Detroit and Kansas City. Those networks would comple-ment Disneys nationally focused ESPN. Disney recently launched ESPN Plus, a separate stream-ing service with more local offerings. That service could benefit from Foxs regional offerings.Comcast already has similar regional networks through NBC Sports, including ones in Boston, Chicago and the San Francisco Bay area. Getting the Fox networks would expand Comcasts territorial reach. StreamingWhichever company prevails will control streaming service Hulu. Comcast, Disney and Fox each has a 30 percent stake, with Time Warner owning the other 10 per-cent. With Foxs share, either Comcast or Disney would end up with a con-trolling 60 percent stake.Disney already plans an entertainment-focused streaming service in 2019. If Disney prevails, it could combine that with Hulu or keep them as separate services.If Comcast prevails, Disneys service could be less appealing, as it wouldnt have Fox video.

PAGE 7 | Friday, June 15, 2018 A7HAVE YOUR SAYWe welcome signed letters and guest columns. Letters should not exceed 300 words and columns should not exceed 500 words. Columns need to include a recent headshot of the writer. We edit for length, clarity, and grammar. Mail: Voices, P.O. Box 490007, Leesburg, FL 34749-0007 Email: Fax: 352-365-1951 Floridians have a constitutional right to access public records. Unfortunately, governments and their agencies increasingly are viewing the exercise of that right as a nuisance, and in some cases are taking steps to punish records requests and discourage others. A recent GateHouse Media report covered a case in which the South Florida Water Management District sued the Everglades Law Center, a nonprofit environmental law firm that had requested records from a closed-door meeting. That meeting led to an $18 million taxpayer-funded settlement for a mining company, from the district and the Martin County Commission. A judge sided with water managers who refused to turn over the transcripts, and the decision is on appeal. We didnt sue them. They sued us. All we did was ask for records,Ž said Lisa Interlandi, an attorney with the Everglades Law Center. Attorneys for the water management district said the records request was designed to make the district pay the legal fees of the requesters if the documents were not surrendered quickly. Thats been a common excuse from governments, and there is some validity to it. There are gadflies who file a blizzard of records requests hoping to overwhelm public agencies and catch them in a technical violation of the states Sunshine Law, so they can sue them and then collect remuneration. In 2017, a bill in the Legislature attempted to combat that tactic by changing the law from requiring that the person requesting the records be entitled to attorneys fees, to making it an option for judges to award fees. Such a change would have discouraged private citizens from pursuing action against a government agency, fearing the potential costs they cannot bear financially. Governments might have been emboldened to withhold documents if theres a chance they wont be held accountable for such a transgression. Thankfully, a compromise passed that addressed truly frivolous requests without gutting the law. The South Florida Water Management District suit represents an alarming escalation of that tactic, turning the government into the aggressor in denying citizens their rights to access records. Its punitive, designed to bully others into reconsidering filing records requests. It turns on its head the states Sunshine Law, which is aimed at limiting government power to conceal information while guaranteeing citizens access. At least one chamber of the Legislature recognizes that. A bill sponsored earlier this year by Sen. Keith Perry, R-Gainesville, and Rep. Ray Rodrigues, R-Estero, would have prohibited governments from filing lawsuits against those seeking public records. The measure was approved by the House 108-0, but died in the Senate Judiciary Committee, after the Florida League of Cities raised concerns about the measures potential sweep. Lawmakers should revisit the matter in next years session and address the cities issues, with the goal of crafting a bill that ultimately will protect the integrity of the open-records law. Governments are custodians of records, not the owners. The records belong to the public. They shouldnt have to beg or sue to get them „ or fear reprisals for requesting them. This editorial appeared in a recent edition of the Daytona Beach News-Journal.OUR OPINIONPutting the chill on open records ANOTHER OPINION Cruel to not cover pre-existing conditions Penalizing pre-existing conditions is the opposite of finding ways to help citizens with insurance costs and medical care. It is paramount to the abandonment of the most vulnerable of our communities and contrary to all rhetoric coming from these same politicians who are calling out to find ways of improving the medical and insurance industries in this country. Represent the people who elected you. Dont reward insurance companies with yet another way to bleed money from those who are already paying so much in an attempt to care for themselves. Not covering pre-existing conditions essentially cancels medical coverage for all except the rich. I find this repulsive, cruel and a disregard for human life.Alan Harris, Clermont Sloan's victimhood and immigration policy Just because you say it, Russ Sloan, doesn't make it so. What popular game show, hosted by a dual American and Canadian citizen, hides a subtle clue within its question? The answer: Jeopardy! And Jeopardy, or the risk of using disinformation tactics, is what Mr. Sloan's June 10 From the Right column is all about. Sloan hopes to accomplish, and bets on, the success of divisive anger talking points to rile up his base. Within the first two paragraphs of Mr. Sloan's opinion column there are at least 10 "dog whistle" flashpoint terms and remarks to provoke anger, I assume towards Democrats, giving the reader no time to think reasonably or logically. Russ Sloan's vehement rhetoric of fear and loathing allows the reader to accept criminality en massse of those of a certain ethnicity, who speak a distinct language, or who worship through a culturally differing religion. Americans are not naive. We know that there are evil people and that they can do evil things. But, the constant complaint from those on the right side of the aisle, who tend to use victimhood of persecution and unfair discrimination themselves, believe that all immigrants are taking advantage of America's good nature so that, at present, government policy has become one of degradation and dehumanization for all those who come purely to work, want a safe environment for their children, and become American citizens. And curiously, when hearing reports of ICE raids on undocumented or illegals, it is always at a workplace-a garden center, a farm, or a meat packing plant--not unlike the recent raid in the community of Morristown, Tennesee where neighbors and churches stepped up and pulled together to help those immigrant families and children of meatpacking workers in the aftermath of the raid. A local Baptist church pastor stating that, "my only concern is for affected families and especially the innocent children." "These people are my neighbors and live in my community." "I try to keep it humanitarian, not political, and certainly not racial." You take it on faith, you take it to the heart. We should all be so fortunate to have pastors and a community like that. The community of Morristown understands that American working families, no matter where God gave you birth, at the end of the day just want to sit down to dinner, bless the meal, and share their day with each other. Americans are resilient „ good luck trying to exhaust our patience. And Mr. Sloan, if you are going to debate a policy or argue a point, please do it in good faith. Not in lies and misinformation.Vicki Bush, Lady LakeLETTERS TO THE EDITOROnce upon a time it was fire and fury and loads of sanctions like nobody ever saw before, and look, it was said, President Donald Trump is going to get us into a nuclear war. But then North Korea came around, saying it wanted to talk. So Trump met with Kim Jung Un who promised to denuclearize, and now its said Trump has elevated a murderous dictator to hero status and set us up as dupes. What I want to say is wait and see and quit trying to make Trump out to have handled this so badly when there were three predecessors who put us in this fix in the first place. One was President Bill Clinton, upset in 1994 because North Korea was preparing to use nuclear fuel rods to help make nuclear weapons. Military preparedness and U.N. sanctions came to mind even as an ex-president named Jimmy Carter said he would visit with Kim Il Sung to quiet things down. Thats OK, he was told, as long as he did not negotiate a deal, which he did, announcing it on CNN TV before telling Clinton. Clinton aides were furious and, according to the author Steven Hayward, the State Department joke after Kim died shortly thereafter was that he laughed himself to death. The deal, which Clinton accepted, involved the United States shipping big bucks worth of energy materials North Koreas way. The team of President George W. Bush found the deal deficient, ended it, and we now know the North Koreans were cheating. After 2006, when the North Koreans tested a nuclear device, the Bush administration got in the concession business to no avail even as we let North Korea get away with sending nuclear materials to Syria. Then we had President Barack Obama in power with a plan known as strategic patience,Ž apparently meaning, look, when San Francisco is taken out, our patience will be at an end. Understand? Of course, Obama gets credit for the Iran nuclear deal in which allies can inspect everything, except of course military bases that Britain, German, France and the United States want to look at. There have been no deal violations except for 32 in which Iran tried to secure nuclear technology from German enterprises. Irans peaceful intent, meanwhile, has been shown by the recent discovery of what experts say is development of a long range missile that could reach America. So dont worry. North Koreas nuclear cravings began in the 1960s, but it was only lately that it began testing missiles left and right while aggressively bragging it could hit the United States. Trump said, hmm, have you ever heard of total destruction? Working with China and United Nations, he inflicted grave economic pain on the country and Kim Jung Un said he wanted to talk, and there was this session in Singapore with Trump clapping him on the back, showing him a film about how great things could be and getting some vague assurances. Yes, vague, but pointed in the right direction with more talks to come, more details about such things as inspections and speed of dismantlement. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo … tough and smart … is in charge, and yes, we have already said we will end military exercises in South Korea. But we will also keep sanctions in place and maybe Kim will somehow outwit all of that and maybe there is no way Trump can win, anymore than he could ever be elected in the first place. I think there is another possibility and that Trump has already been abler than Clinton, Bush or Obama. Jay Ambrose is an op-ed columnist for Tribune News Service.

He paused behind the mound with two outs in the seventh inning and waited for Florida coach Kevin OSullivan.After a few words of encouragement from team-mates, Singer handed the ball to OSullivan and headed to the dugout with a fiverun lead. The Southeastern Conference pitcher of the year then received a long, loud, standing ovation as he exited the final home start of his college career. It was a special moment for the right-hander from Eustis.Its also become an annual occurrence for the Gators (47-19), who have established themselves as Pitching UŽ while advanc-ing to the College World Series for the fourth straight season and seventh time in nine years.Obviously, were very talented,Ž OSullivan said.Floridas staff features two first-round draft picks „ Singer and fellow starter Jackson Kowar „ and AllAmerican closer Michael Byrne. Throw in budding freshmen Jack Leftwich and Tommy Mace along with wild card Tyler Dyson, and the defending national champions might be as deep as anyone in the eight-team field.Floridas pitching prowess will be on display when it begins play in Omaha, Nebraska, against Texas Tech (44-18) on Sunday.The staff was the main reason the Gators won it all last year. Florida gave up five runs in its five wins at TD Ameritrade Park in 2017, including two shutouts against TCU.Pitching remains the backbone of OSullivans team this time around. The Gators allowed nine runs in three regional victories and seven runs in a best-of-three super regional against Auburn.Tigers coach Butch Thompson, whose team scored 40 times in three regional games the weekend before, summed up Floridas pitching performance in one word: Elite.ŽWe did our best to try to match it,Ž he added. Few have.Since OSullivan took over in Gainesville in 2007, the Gators have posted an ERA inside the top 30 nationally eight times. And thats against the ultra-tough Southeastern Conference and with powerhouse programs Florida State and Miami always on the schedule.The mound commitment stems from OSullivan, a college catcher who learned early on how to handle pitch-ers and take care of arms.At Florida, hes had 15 Pitching holds key to UFs CWS hopesBy James EllingworthAssociated PressMOSCOW „ Vladimir Putin craves sporting glory, and he got another taste of it in the opening match of the World Cup.Russia ended a 16-year wait for victory in the tournament by routing Saudi Arabia 5-0 Thursday in Group A, with the Russian president watch-ing from the VIP box alongside FIFA president Gianni Infantino and the Saudi crown prince.It was the host nations first World Cup win since 2002, and it raises the hope that Russia can get past the group stage for the first time since the Soviet era.Yuri Gazinsky initially put Russia ahead with a header from Alexander Golovins cross when the Saudis failed to clear a corner in the 12th minute. Gazinsky charged forward to meet the ball as Saudi player Taisir Al-Jassam stumbled, leaving a simple finish.Putin and Infantino smiled and shrugged as they sat next to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Putin then reached over to shake the princes hand.Substitute Denis Cheryshev soon scored the first of his two goals. He chipped the ball over two Saudi defenders in the 43rd minute and shot over goalkeeper Abdullah Al Muaioufs right side to make it 2-0. He later chipped the ball in for Russias fourth goal in stop-page time.I have never done anything like this,Ž Cheryshev said. I already felt very happy when I knew I could come here with my squad, but I never, ever dreamed of something like this.ŽAfter Cheryshevs first goal, Artyom Dzyuba made an instant impact off the bench to Putin and Russia get their 1st win at the World CupRussias Denis Cheryshev dribbles past Saudi Arabia players to score his sides second goal during the 2018 World Cup opening match at the Luzhniki stadium in Moscow, Russia, on Thursday. [AP PHOTO / VICTOR CAIVANO] By Doug FergusonAP Golf WriterSOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. „ The return to a classic U.S. Open course brought back the kind of scoring that gave this major its reputation.Dustin Johnson played some of his best golf Thursday and yet the worlds No. 1 player barely beat par in the treach-erous wind at Shinnecock Hills. Johnson holed a bunker shot for birdie, kept his mis-takes to a minimum and joined Ian Poulter, Scott Piercy and Russell Henley at 1-under 69 for a share of the lead.You had to focus on every single shot you hit „ putts, everything,Ž Johnson said. It was just difficult all day.ŽNo need to tell that to Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and a long list of golfs bests who had their hopes crushed in gusts that approached 25 mph that made fairways look more narrow and the shin-high rough dif-ficult to avoid.In his return to the U.S. Scoring strugglesDustin Johnson reacts after sinking a shot from the bunker for par on the seventh hole during the “ rst round of the U.S. Open Golf Championship, Thursday in Southampton, N.Y.

Hes planning and hoping to sign this summer to return for a 16th season, something that was not only unlikely but unthinkable after every team passed when given the chance to secure his services through the draft.My mind works differently,Ž Haslem said. I know when one door closes, another door opens. Thats the way its always been for me.ŽOut of the 57 draft picks that all went ahead of Haslem in 2002, only one „ Nene „ was on a roster last season. Haslem has outlasted almost everyone who was in the league when he arrived as a rookie in 2003 following a year in France; just 12 players who were in the NBA in 2002-03 remained on rosters this past season.Hes one of many undrafted success stories in the NBA right now: Utahs Joe Ingles and Philadelphias Robert Covington played huge roles for their respective teams reaching the second round of the playoffs, Miamis Tyler Johnson is about to see his salary explode to nearly $40 million over the next two seasons, and Bostons Aron Baynes became a pivotal part of the Celt-ics rotation this season while appearing in 100 games.Theyre all proof that if theres enough skill, the NBA will eventually notice.UD would never get told no,Ž his longtime Heat teammate Dwyane Wade said. I remember when I came in for my Heat workout before the draft and asked who the guy getting every rebound was and they told me, Thats Udonis Haslem. And I didnt even recognize him because of how much hed changed his body. I knew right away that he was a guy I wanted on my team.ŽWhen one door closes, another door opensMiami Heat forward Udonis Haslem, left, chats with Los Angeles Lakers forward Luol Deng before the start of a March 1 NBA game in Miami. [WILFREDO LEE/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE]For Haslem, being undra ed was just a beginning

PAGE 11 | Friday, June 15, 2018 B3pitchers selected in the first four rounds of the MLB draft. Eight of those came in the last three years, includ-ing first-rounders A.J. Puk, Dane Dunning, Alex Faedo, Singer and Kowar. Singer was selected 18th overall by Kansas City. Kowar went 33rd, also to the Royals.The duo has been in Floridas weekend rota-tion the last two years and played key roles at the 2017 CWS.Singer won both starts in Omaha, allowing four earned runs in 14 innings, and Kowar earned his first save in a 6-1 victory against LSU in the deciding game of the best-of-three championship series.They both pitched on the biggest stage and they should be able to pull from that experience last year,Ž OSullivan said.Singer is 12-1 with a 2.30 ERA in 15 starts this season. Kowar is 9-5 with a 3.24 ERA, but had his best outing in the super regional.The whole weekend gets started with Brady,Ž OSullivan said. I dont want to overstate it, but when you take him out of your rotation it just disrupts all rhythm and timing.ŽSinger missed three weeks with a strained left hamstring, and the Gators went into a funk. They lost six of seven games heading into the NCAA tournament.What got them back on track? Pitching, of course.Now, Florida needs five victories to repeat as champs.Its been the goal all season, and its finally within reach.For this team, its essen-tially 60 feet, 6 inches away „ the distance between the mound and home plate.If we execute our pitches, we feel like were good enough to get that done,Ž Byrne said. GATORSFrom Page B1what we accomplished in just one season and Im honored to have been the head coach for an amaz-ing group of young men.They bought in and now the program is in much better shape now than it was when I got here and is positioned to enjoy success for years to come.ŽRolle led Wildwood to an undefeated regular season (9-0) and a berth in the Class 1A playoffs in 2017. Prior to Rolles arrival, the Wildcats had lost 23 straight games over a span of nearly four years and did not field a team in 2015.In his resignation letter, submitted to Wildwood Principal Richard Hampton, Rolle thanked Hampton and school administrators for giving him the chance to get the Wildcats back on track. He also thanked the Wildcat NationŽ for supporting his vision.Wildwood football is back on the map and I can not wait to watch the results,Ž Rolle said.Before taking over at Wildwood, Rolle worked as an assistant coach at Lake Minneola, Umatilla and Ocala Trinity Catholic. He was also head coach at Lecanto from 2011 through the 2013 season and in 2012, Rolle led the Panthers to just their second playoff berth in school history.Counting his stint at Lecanto, Rolles career coaching record is 19-22. Rolle was named Wild-cats coach in February 2017. He replaced Fred Anderson and Darrin Fort, who were co-head coaches for the 2016 season „ an 0-10 campaign that followed a decision by school officials to sit out the 2015 season to regroup and rebuild.ŽI feel great about this opportunity,Ž Rolle said on Feb. 6, 2017. Wildwood is a proud school with a tremendous history of turning out great football teams. Im here to help get Wildwood back to where it used to be on the football field. It wasnt that long ago when Friday nights in Wildwood were very special.Theres no reason that cant happen again and I will work to make that happen for as long as they will have me at Wildwood.ŽRolle told his players that he was leaving during a meeting Thurs-day morning. He said they were sad, but happy for me.ŽIt was a tough meeting and a very emotional one,Ž Rolle said.Wildwood Athletic Director Ryan Harrison said he and Hampton werent entirely surprised by Rolles decision. Har-rison said Rolle has always talked about his desire to eventually coach at the college level.Nonetheless, Harrison said Rolles decision was a disappointment.ŽWere losing a tremen-dous coach,Ž Harrison said. Deep down, I think we all knew that other high schools and colleges were going to come look-ing for him, especially after the season he led us to in 2017. We wish Coach Rolle the best of luck at Garden City and we thank him for everything he did for Wildwood football.ŽHarrison said he plans to sit down with Hampton on Monday and decide how best to keep the football program on track. He did not say if they plan to promote an assistant coach on an interim basis or launch a full-fledged hiring effort to find a new head coach with preseason practice set to begin July 30.Were going to make a move immediately so that our kids dont miss a beat,Ž Harrison said. This isnt something were going to let linger and have a negative impact on our football program. Whoever we decide is going to replace McKinley, he will walk into a weight room next week filled with players working hard to get better.ŽRolle played college football at St. Johns University in New York City and graduated with a bachelors degree. He earned a masters degree from Florida State University.His younger brother, Myron, played college football at FSU and in the NFL with Tennessee and Pittsburgh.Garden City Commu-nity College is considered by many to be one of the top junior-college programs in the country. Countless NFL players began their college careers at Garden City, including Corey Dillon, a four-time Pro Bowl selection with the New England and Cincinnati, and Tyreek Hill, a wide receiver and specialist with the Kansas City Chiefs.I wasnt looking to leave Wildwood,Ž Rolle said. The opportunity to coach (at Garden City) came up very quickly and the chance to coach, develop and recruit the best players in the coun-try was very appealing. We dont get many opportunities in life so when they happen, its crucial we are prepared and ready to go. My time at Wildwood prepared me for this opportunity and I hope to make everyone proud as I embark on this journey.Ž ROLLEFrom Page B1Open after a two-year absence, Woods opened a major with a triple bogey for the first time in 15 years. He added back-to-back double bogeys on the back nine and staggered to a 78.Spieth waited until the second hole to make a triple bogey, blasted out of a bunker and over the 11th green, and then took three shots to get on the putting surface. McIlroy found trouble just about everywhere and shot 80, his highest first-round score in a major.It was pretty evident nobody was making any birdies in the morning „ lots and lots of bogeys and others,Ž Woods said. My game plan was not to make any others, and I made three of them. So didnt do very well there.ŽIt was quite a contrast from last year at Erin Hills in Wisconsin, which set a record for the first round by yielding 44 rounds under par.Piercy, the last man in the 156-man field as an alternate from qualifying, was so disgusted with his game in his final practice round that he walked off the course. He dropped only two shots, both on par 3s, and was the first to post a 69. Poulter also played in the morning, while Johnson and Henley played in the afternoon as the wind reached its full strength.Henley was the only player to reach 3 under at any point, and he promptly gave that back with a double bogey on No. 10.Jason Dufner opened with a 70, and even those at 1-over 71 felt as though they put in a hard days work, a group that included Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson. Its a different kind of enjoyment, right?Ž Rose said. I enjoy the battle. I enjoy the fight. I enjoy the grind, really. When you get a bit cut up and bruised, it can change pretty quick.ŽJohnson is coming off a six-shot victory last week in the St. Jude Clas-sic, and while no one has ever won the U.S. Open coming off a PGA Tour victory the week before, he played as though nothing had changed. He holed medium-length putts for birdies, a few nervy, short putts for par and picked up a bonus when his shot from a front bunker on the par-4 eighth rattled and rolled into the cup.Not even Johnson was immune from mistakes, however, dropping shots on the 12th and 14th holes.It didnt take long to figure out what kind of test this was going to be, with the 15 flags atop the grandstand next to the 18th green already flap-ping as the first group teed off, and they were crackling by the afternoon.Phil Mickelson, needing the U.S. Open to complete the Grand Slam, played in the feature grouping with Spieth and McIlroy. They finished a combined 25-over par, with Mickel-son taking honors at 77. It was his highest opening round in his 27 U.S. Opens. Mickelson refused a request to speak to the media about his round.So did McIlroy, who had a pair of double bogeys in his third round of 80 or more in a major.Woods quickly joined them.From the middle of the first fairway, he went long over the green. He chipped once and it came back to his feet. He tried it again with the same result, and then rapped his putter up the hill by the hole and missed the putt. He held it together until a four-putt on No. 13, the last three of those putts from 6 feet. OPENFrom Page B1make it 3-0 in the 71st with a header from Golovins cross. Golovin added the fifth from a free kick.Following a lavish open-ing ceremony featuring British singer Robbie Wil-liams, Putin welcomed visiting fans and promised Russia would be a hospi-table and friendlyŽ host.Putin has made no secret about his desire for success in international sports, especially at the Olympics. But high points for Russian athletes have been rare since the countrys image was tarnished by doping, with numerous Olympic medals stripped for drug use.In a World Cup first, the video assistant referee system was available for the match between the tournaments lowest-ranked teams, though it wasnt used for an official review.The Saudis, who last won a match at the World Cup in 1994, failed to get a single shot on target. GROUP DYNAMICSThe win for Russia is a big boost to its hopes of advancing, but it will still face a tough test against Egypt on June 19 and Uruguay six days later.With the five goals against the Saudis, a draw could be enough against either of its two remaining opponents.Saudi Arabias route to the knockout round is much more difficult. The Saudis will face Uruguay on June 20 and then Egypt on June 25. Egypt and Uruguay play today in Yekaterinburg. KE Y TO SUCCESSRussias players were significantly taller and heavier than the Saudis, a help when challenging for the ball and when the penalty area was crowded.That had an effect on Gazinskys goal, which came after the Saudis struggled to clear a Rus-sian corner, and the header from the tall and stocky Dzyuba.One concern for Russia is that creative midfielder Alan Dzagoev picked up a suspected hamstring injury, but that was what allowed Cheryshev to come off the bench and change the game. FRINGE PLAYERS TRIUMPHRussias bench players had their day of glory.Dzyuba had played only once for Russia since 2016, while Cheryshev and Gazinsky made two appearances in that time.Raised in Spain, where his father Dmitry taught at Real Madrids youth academy, Cheryshev showed his technical skills by beating the two Saudi defenders before his first goal.Dzyuba spent half the season on loan after reported disputes with Zenit St. Petersburg man-agement, but forced his way back into the Russia team with strong play. QUOTABLESaudi coach Juan Anto-nio Pizzi: We were not doing what we wanted to do. The opposing team did not have to make a huge effort to win.ŽGolovin: For us, each game is like the last.Ž SERIOUS STATSIt was Russias third win from 10 World Cup matches since the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991. Cheryshev hadnt scored for Russia in his 11 previous appearances. Saudi Arabia has now lost a game by four or more goals at each of its last four World Cup visits, including an 8-0 rout at the hands of Germany in 2002.

PAGE 17 | Friday, June 15, 2018 C1 DRIVETom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 Powered by Q: I have begun to have a problem with my 2001 Ford Escape with the V-6 engine. It starts fine in the morning and runs OK for a few miles, and then it begins chugging and loping when I come to a stop. It also hesitates to take off but then drives OK again after I get to higher speeds. Any idea of what could be the cause before I make a service appointment? „ KarenA: There are many possible reasons for an engine to idle rough or hesitate on acceleration, but most of them would occur at all times. Your comment that the engine runs fine for a short time before acting up leads me to focus on the EGR system. This is an emission control strategy that allows a small quantity of exhaust gasses to be recirculated through the engine a second time. Adding a small, carefully regulated quantity of exhaust to the incoming air-fuel charge reduces combustion temperature, and the formation of NOx, a nasty emission compound. I wrote about this a while back, regarding a GM vehicle, but have since heard of quite a few other makes and models of vehicles encountering similar issues. Many but not all vehicles have EGR, some use a vacuum operated EGR valve (addressed here) and others use a purely electric EGR, which isnt prone to the problem Ill mention. EGR is not supposed to occur when the engine is cold, or when its idling. If it does, engine roughness such as you described may occur. Since your Escape runs well when the engine is cold, it appears the computer controlled electric solenoid (valve) controlling the EGR valve is functioning normally. What I believe may be happening is the control solenoids vent filter has become restricted, which causes the EGR valve to linger open when the engine returns to idle. This is a serviceable and inexpensive part, located beneath a removable black plastic cap that snaps onto the top of EGR control solenoid. Unsnapping the cap reveals a removable foam thimble, which can be either cleaned or replaced. Try removing the filter and drive the Escape for a short time without it to see if this corrects your idle loping/ roughness symptom. On other vehicles with a less obvious vent filter location, or perhaps a non-serviceable integrated filter, one can temporarily disconnect and plug the vacuum hose leading to the EGR valve (its location, along with that of the control solenoid, should be indicated on the under-hood emission control information label „ if EGR isnt mentioned, the vehicle likely does not have one). Try driving the vehicle for a few minutes to check for a difference in performance. If it markedly improves, an EGR fault exists. If the check engine light illuminates, dont worry; itll go out within a day or two and the stored trouble code will self-erase in about two UNDER THE HOODGetting to the bottom of a rough-running engine Brad Bergholdt By Daniel MillerTribune News ServiceThe first thing you need to know about the Genesis G90 luxury sedan is that its def-initely not a Hyundai. Even though its made by Hyundai Motor Group.Genesis is the young, high-end brand from the South Korean auto conglomerate, which has been careful to distinguish the luxury divi-sion from its more affordable Hyundai and Kia lines of sedans and sport utility vehicles. The full-size G90 is the nameplates flagship vehicle, a stately ride that tops out around $75,000 and comes loaded with luxury and technology features you wont find in an Elantra.And if, by mistake, you call the G90 a Hyundai in conversation with Erwin Raphael, Genesis general manager in the U.S., he will correct you. He noted my gaffe, at least.I sensed Raphael was accustomed to this. He took it in stride, breezily pointing out the inaccuracy „ but it felt as though he couldnt let the error slide. I imagine others could make the same mistake, and not because the G90 seems economical, but simply because the Genesis brand is only 2 years old.And thats part of Genesis challenge: to educate consumers about its existence, while keeping a safe dis-tance from Hyundai and the residue of unreliability that clings to the marque, which entered the stateside market in 1986 with cars plagued by quality issues.Those problems were dealt with years ago „ aided by Hyundai famously offering a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty „ and now the company is known for producing well-made and dependable vehicles.But just a whiff of shoddiness, even if it is by association, could taint the rollout of a brand thats asking consumers to drop Mercedes-Benz money on a car from South Korea, which never before has sent such a pricey car to America and whose cars have yet to attain the prestige of European and Japanese rivals. In a way, Genesis is trying to accomplish what Lexus did in the early 1990s, when the Toyota Motor Corp.owned company upended the U.S. luxury car market with its LS400 sedan.That car, which bowed in 1989, was priced well below its competitors and offered Japanese reliability alongside new features such as an automatic tilt-andtelescoping steering wheel and power-adjustable seat belts. These doodads may seem quaint now, but the LS400 stood out and quickly outsold many rivals.In the G90, Genesis has De nitely not a HyundaiGenesis G90 is a luxurious opening act for the young brandIn Ultimate guise, the Genesis G90 features a V-8 motor generating 420 horsepower. [KENT NISHIMURA/TNS] Highs: Re“ ned looks, plenty of technology for the money Lows: Slightly rough around the edges Vehicle type: Four-door, “ ve-passenger luxury sedan Base price: $72,825 Price as tested: $72,825 Powertrain: 5.0-liter V-8 gasoline engine Transmission: Eight-speed automatic Horsepower: 420Genesis G90 5.0 Ultimate By Mark PhelanTribune News ServiceDETROIT „ For Ford, deciding to quit building sedans was easy.Demand and prices for cars like the Taurus and Fusion is falling, with no end in sight. Choosing to sell something else isn't the kind of insight that gets you a Nobel for economics.Now comes the tough part: Creating new SUV-type vehicles that will outperform the Taurus, Fusion, Focus and Fiesta in sales, profits and production.Nearly every automaker faces this challenge as the market moves toward SUVs, but none more immediately than Ford, which allowed its car lineup to become the oldest in the industry at the same time buyers' interest in sedans flagged. "This is a step in the auto-mobile's evolution," design consultant and former GM design chief Ed Welburn said. "Coupes were the rage for decades. That transitioned to sedans and now crossovers." Many industry insiders use the term "crossover" for SUVs not engineered for off-road use or heavy towing.The race is on to design and develop the vehicles that replace Ford's plod-ding sedans. Even inside the company, few people know what's next.If you think the answer is more Expeditions, Explorers and Escapes, you're wrong. The new vehicles must look and feel significantly different from what Ford sells today."Ford, more than any other brand, is a truck brand „ a pickup truck brand," said Autotrader senior analyst Michelle Krebs."Consumers don't think of Ford as an SUV brand much more than they think of it as a car brand. Ford car owners, after they have shopped Ford cars, go to the Honda CR-V before they look at Ford utilities. If Ford is to move its current car buyers to its SUVs or something else, it has some work to do."Here's what we know about Ford's plan: € Ford divides its future SUVs into two types: "urban utilities" that will never go off-road, and more rugged SUVs like the upcoming Bronco that can hit the trail and compete with brands including Jeep and Land Rover. € Ford will replace its sedans with vehicles that are taller, more upright and have more ground clearance. Think models like the Kia Soul, Honda Element and Subaru Outback. € Ford is developing an offroad SUV smaller than the Bronco. € The Chinese-made Focus Active will have Focus looks, but more ground clearance, a higher roof and SUV-style profile when it goes on sale in mid-2019. € Ford will use lightweight materials, hybrids 9 things to know about Ford's plan without sedans A line of Ford Fusions await buyers at Gary Yeomans Ford in the Daytona International Auto Mall.

Dislikes: EntrySdoesnot offersomehighertechsafety options. an effective opening offer-ing in the luxury marketplace „ one that is less expensive than most of its entrenched competitors while including many of the same advanced features found in those rides, some of which have been playing in this moneyed space for decades. Approaching our test vehi-cle, a 2018 G90 5.0 Ultimate edition that cost $72,825, I was struck by this: It certainly looks credible. The sedan has a muscular grace, which is most effective at the rear, where its high belt line, brawny haunches and swoop-ing, vertical taillights mesh nicely.Inside are ribbons of wood and chromed surfaces, and lots of technology, such as a 12.3-inch screen that displays all manner of information, including a 360-degree exte-rior view of the car thats beamed from an array of cam-eras. It makes parking in tight spaces a cinch. Behind the wheel, the rear-wheel drive G90 is refined, equally comfortable on L.A.s scarred city streets and free-ways. The distinguishing element of the Ultimate ver-sion is its V-8 engine, which generates 420 horsepower and propels the car to 60 mph in an estimated 5.3 seconds.The car is faster than it needs to be. And yet, even at speed, its impressively quiet inside the cabin. A sharp stab of the throttle does generate some noise indicating there is internal combustion happen-ing somewhere in the vicinity, but the experience is other-wise serene.There are, however, areas where the car is a letdown, allowing the down-market anxieties to fester. The issues in our test vehicle were small „ a flimsy glove box door that did not open smoothly, and plastic door lock/unlock buttons that seemed fit for a car one-third of the price „ but I noticed them.In some respects, the G90 feels like it is trying too hard. As with some other cars „ including far less expensive ones, such as the Chevrolet Volt „ the G90 plays a short musical theme over its stereo system upon powering the vehicle on and off. In the G90, slightly different tunes are played at the beginning and end of a journey, and the piano-focused pieces seem to be an attempt to evoke luxury.But Im not a music critic, so I asked a friend, Michael Wells, the choral director of the Silver Lake Chorus, to listen to the four-second introductory composition and offer his thoughts.The harmonic progression begins with an arpeggiated inverted minor chord that shifts to a major chord, giving an uplifting feeling. Its refreshing, but doesnt fully resolve as a musical phrase, such that you are left wonder-ing whats next, which in this case is whatever your journey is going to be,Ž he said. The idea of having a musical greeting „ its like a fanfare in medieval times for a king.ŽIf arpeggiated inverted minor chords arent your thing, the musical function can be turned off.When the Lexus LS400 debuted nearly 30 years ago, it was knocked for aping some of the design and engineering elements of competing vehicles such as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, whose uncompromising „ albeit stolid „ approach to luxury has made it an industry leader for years. Now, the G90 is the latest luxury interloper, and this time its the Lexus LS (among others) that looks to be the subject of some mimicry.I asked Raphael about the issue of imitation. He pushed back, even as I noted that, for starters, the Genesis logo looks a lot like Bentleys winged emblem.If you thought about it, you could probably come up with four or five car brands with wings,Ž he suggested. (I couldnt.)I asked Raphael about the styling similarities between the G90 and other cars. We certainly dont benchmark „ we dont even like using the word,Ž he replied. If some-body sees a line or a light or a handle that looks like another car, I dont really take much from it.ŽStill, I wanted to get some seat time in the new-for-2018 Lexus LS500 for the sake of comparison. The base LS500 starts at $76,219, which is within range of a G90 Ulti-mate optioned with all-wheel drive. But it was tough to make an apples-to-apple comparison with the LS that Lexus lent me „ an options-laden hybrid version that cost nearly $105,000. (Among the niceties were surprisingly effective massaging front seats, which are part of a $12,270 luxury package; such thrones arent available in the G90.)Setting aside the ultraluxurious trappings, the LS500 simply outperformed the Genesis in some respects „ its radar cruise control and lane-keeping assist system, for example, were more effective and less obtru-sive. And then there are the little things the Lexus does well, suggesting a level of refinement achieved over decades of honing. Consider the stereos volume knob, which is pleasingly hefty and smooth in activation. Theres no clicking as you turn it, and a few twiddles will leave you thinking that any volume knob that clicks is supremely declasse.But there are also areas where the G90 excels. Its voice command system was superior to the one in the Lexus, never once flubbing one of my demands, expertly routing me via the navigation system to places with tricky names „ among them the res-taurants Musso & Frank and Republique. HYUNDAIFrom Page C1and electric vehicles to boost fuel economy € Ford will have the same number of models in 2020 as today. In addition to the Bronco and smaller offroad SUV, that suggests one or two more SUVs slotting into the space the Fusion and Taurus occupy € The subcompact Ecosport will anchor the bottom of the lineup until Ford develops a new vehicle to compete with the Honda HR-V, Nissan Rogue Sport and Chevrolet Trax. € The Taurus, Fusion and Fiesta accounted for 296,748 sales in 2017. To call the new strategy a suc-cess, Ford should sell at least that many of the new vehicles „ at higher prices than its cars get today. € Ford expects SUVs to account for 50 percent of North American vehicle sales by 2020. With pickups and vans around 20 percent, that leaves sedans, coupes, convertibles and sports cars to fight over just 30 percent of the market, down from about half a few years ago.Fiat Chrysler crossed this bridge two years ago when CEO Sergio Marchionne said the company would stop building the midsize Chrysler 200 and compact Dodge Dart sedans to con-centrate on pickups and SUVs.FCA hasn't looked back, but it had two advantages Ford lacks: The Jeep brand's strong image and the ability to give high-volume vehicles luxurious interi-ors, as demonstrated by the Ram pickup. "Ford's going to have to come up with some really exciting ways to crease their sheet metal to make the new SUVs look different and exciting," said Joe Phillippi, principal of analyst Autotrends.Appealing interiors and simple controls for entertainment systems and smartphones will also be important, Phillippi added. "The genius is the person who figures out what's next," Welburn said. "SUVs will evolve. Some will be sportier. Others will be lower and easier for the aging and people with dis-abilities to get in and out."At the same time, it's risky to stretch the envelope too far, product develop-ment consultant Eric Noble of the Carlab said."The SUV formula has been around for 100 years because it works: a command seating position, lots of passenger and cargo space. If you cross the line and make the vehicle too round, you reach a point where the utility is gone. That's when you lose the customer."Ford needs to replace 300,000 sales a year. They're not going to do that with nichey, car-like SUVs." FORDFrom Page C1weeks. Long term disconnection of the EGR is not advised, as it is ill egal, increases emissions and may lead to engine-damaging detonation (spark knock). I should add that an engine that idles rough cold or hot may be the result of an EGR valve that does not fully close. The cause is often a build-up of carbon on the valve seat. Rough running while under way can result from a faulty EGR position or exhaust pressure sensor. ENGINEFrom Page C1

DEAR ABBY: My mother-in-law constantly talks to my husband about committing suicide because she's not happy with her life or her husband. My husband worries all the time and has offered to let her come stay with us for a while. To me, this would be a nightmare. I can't be around her more than two or three days, and she has "hinted" that she would like to move in permanently with us. I have told my husband how I feel, but he's terried she will follow through. How can I x this? Should I tell her how I feel? -SCARED IN THE SOUTH DEAR SCARED: If your mother-in-law moves in with you, it will probably spell the end of your marriage. She needs more help than you or her son is qualied to give. Explain this to your husband. His mother may suffer from chronic depression or be trying to manipulate her son through emotional blackmail. If he really wants to help his mother, he will make sure she is evaluated by a licensed mental health professional. DEAR ABBY: We love being near the water, but my husband drags a chair behind our rental and sits in the sun in the alley without his shirt. This is an upscale neighborhood, and it's embarrassing to me, especially because he is in his 70s and not in shape to display his stomach. The neighbors laugh it off, but I have told him how I feel and pleaded with him to walk a few steps to the beach and sit there shirtless. He said I hurt his feelings and embarrassed him by suggesting it. What more can I do to make him see how inappropriate it is? -BEACH BUNNY DEAR BUNNY: Nothing! If he doesn't feel sunbathing in the back alley is inappropriate and the neighbors aren't offended, then the problem is you, not him. He may not want to sunbathe on the beach because he is self-conscious about his appearance, and your comments didn't help. Apologies are in order.DEAR ABBY: I am a teetotaler. As frequently happens when a group of friends share a meal together at a restaurant, when the bill arrives, one of the party will suggest, "Why don't we just split it?" The rest of the group usually quickly agrees, but left out of the equation is the fact that the lone teetotaler did not participate in the round -or several rounds -of cocktails before dinner and ends up subsidizing the drinkers. If I squawk about it, I look cheap. If I don't, I feel taken advantage of. Please advise. -TICKED OFF TEETOTALER DEAR T.O.T.: If you haven't squawked before, you should. The time to speak up would be when the get-together is being planned and you can talk to each of your friends privately. Suggest the booze bill and the food tab be separate, which would keep the math simple for everyone. Or, put enough in the till to cover your cost and the tip, and let them split the rest.
