The FBI is also reinforcing through employee training the need to avoid the appearance of political bias, a key point of criticism in last weeks report, and has referred employees singled out in the report to the agencys investiga-tive arm for possible discipline. The OIGs report makes clear that we have significant work to do and as I said were going to learn from the report and be better as a result,Ž Wray said, even as multiple Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Commit-tee pounced on the reports findings to allege rampant bias within the FBI.The departments inspector general, Michael Horowitz, appeared Director: FBI wont repeat mistakes noted in report See FBI, A5By Zeke Miller and Kevin McGillThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ An unapologetic President Donald Trump defended his administrations border-pro-tection policies Monday in the face of rising national outrage over the forced separation of migrant children from their parents. Calling for tough action against illegal immigration, Trump declared the U.S. will not be a migrant campŽ on his watch.Images of children held in fenced cages fueled a growing chorus of condemnation from both political parties, four former first ladies and national evangelical leaders. The children are being held separately from parents who are being prosecuted under the administrations zerotoleranceŽ policy for illegal border crossings. I say its very strongly the Democrats fault,Ž Trump said Monday as his administration rejected criticism that the policy has resulted in inhuman and immoral conditions.Trump pointed to more lenient policies under past administrations that had not charged all migrants who had crossed illegally.We will not apologize for the job we do or for the job law enforcement does, for doing the job that the Ameri-can people expect us to do,Ž Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said in an appearance before the National Sheriffs Association in New Orleans. Illegal actions have and must have consequences.

The quake also grounded flights in and out of Osaka and par-alyzed traffic and commuter trains most of the day.By evening, bullet trains and some local trains had resumed operation, and stations were swollen with commuters trying to get home, many of them waiting in long lines. An exodus of commuters who chose to walk home filled sidewalks and bridges.Some commuters took refuge in nearby shelters instead of going home. NHK public television showed dozens of men wearing ties and carrying briefcases sitting on gym mats at a junior high school gymnasium in Ibaraki city, where some families also gathered.Takatsuki city confirmed another victim late Monday, as the death toll rose to four. City officials didnt have details of the victim, but NHK and Kyodo News reported that an 81-year-old woman was found dead underneath a wardrobe that fell on her at her home in Takatsuki.Also in Takatsuki, a concrete wall at an elementary school fell onto the street, killing 9-year-old Rina Miyake as she walked to the school. NHK showed the collapsed upper half of the high wall, which was painted cheerfully with flowers, trees and blue sky and surrounded the school swimming pool.Mayor Takeshi Hamada apologized over her death because of the walls collapse. The city acknowledged that the wall did not meet building safety codes. The structure was old and made of concrete blocks „ a known risk in earthquakes. Chief Cabi-net Secretary Yoshihide Suga ordered the Education Ministry to conduct nationwide safety checks of concrete block structures at public schools.More than 1,000 schools were closed in Osaka and nearby prefectures, Kyodo News reported. Wall cracks and other minor damage were found at several schools.A man in his 80s died in the collapse of a concrete wall in Osaka city. An 85-year-old man in nearby Ibaraki died after a bookcase fell on top of him at home, according to the disaster management agency.The Fire and Disaster Man-agement Agency said 307 people were treated for inju-ries at hospitals. Most of the injured were in Osaka. Osaka officials did not give details, but the injuries reported in Kyoto and three other neighboring prefectures were all minor.The quake struck shortly before 8 a.m. north of Osaka at a depth of about 8 miles, the Japan Meteorological Agency said. The strongest shaking was north of Osaka, but the quake rattled large parts of western Japan, including Kyoto, the agency said.Dozens of domestic flights in and out of Osaka were grounded, while train and subway service in the Osaka area, including bullet trains, was suspended to check for damage. Passengers exited trains on the tracks between stations.Some subway service resumed in the afternoon, but stations remained crowded with passengers waiting for trains to restart, many of them sitting on the floor. Long lines of people waited to board bullet trains as they resumed operation.Some manufacturers, including automakers Dai-hatsu Motor Co. and Honda Motor Co., electronics makers Panasonic and Sharp Corp., and confectioners Ezaki Glico Co. and Meiji Co., temporarily stopped production lines at their factories in the region for safety checks, news reports said.The quake knocked over walls, broke windows and set off scattered building fires. It toppled furniture in homes and goods onto shop floors. It also cracked roads and broke water pipes, leav-ing homes without water.Many homes and buildings, including a major hospital, were temporarily without power, though elec-tricity was restored at most places by midafternoon.Strong quake near Osaka, Japan, kills 4The gate of Myotoku-ji temple collapsed Monday after an earthquake hit Ibaraki City, Osaka, western Japan.

Clark, 19, of Eustis, was arrested Friday morning and charged with felony battery strangulation and resisting arrest with violence.The deputy said he arrived at County Road 46A in Sorrento in response to a call about a fight in progress. Clark was out of his car and yelling at a Florida Highway Patrol trooper, and the trooper was telling him to get back in his vehicle because of traffic from the nearby highway. The deputy said he tried to talk to Clark but he got in the troopers face. Law enforcement officers took him to the ground, where he resisted being handcuffed.The woman said Clark was driving aggressively and almost caused her to have an accident. When the two vehi-cles stopped at a stop sign, she got out of her car to complain about his driving. She said he got out of his car, stepped on her shoes and put her in a choke hold.

He reportedly cursed when another trooper asked the same questions and said, None of your business," then sped off.Troopers said he didn't get far before he crashed into a tree and was handcuffed fol-lowing a brief foot chase.Padgett reportedly said his back and chest hurt, so troopers called for an ambu-lance.

Arrangements by Harden/ Pauli Funeral Home, Eustis.important to cover indi-viduals with pre-existing conditions and that every American, including those with pre-existing conditions, should have the ability to buy any kind of insurance they want.ŽThe statement came the same day that U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson „ Scotts opponent in this falls election „ held a meeting in Orlando with people who have pre-existing conditions. During the meeting, Nelson discussed a lawsuit that 20 states, including Florida, have filed against the federal Affordable Care Act that could result in those pro-tections being eliminated.A pivotal moment in the lawsuit happened this month when President Donald Trumps admin-istration decided it would not defend the Affordable Care Act. In the immediate after-math, Scott avoided directly discussing the potential impact of the lawsuit, despite his history of being critical of the health care overhaul pushed by President Barack Obama. Democrats pounced on Scotts statements. Florida joined the lawsuit at the direction of Attorney General Pam Bondi.Scotts statement on Monday still did not completely address the lawsuit, but he said that Obamacare is a disaster and costs way too much, but keeping pre-existing provisions should be a part of any health care reform. I disagree with efforts to dismantle protections for those with pre-existing conditions.ŽIf the lawsuit by Florida and other states is success-ful, it would do away with key parts of the law that require insurance compa-nies to sell health policies to people regardless of pre-existing conditions and prevents charging more because of the conditions. The provisions benefit people who arent covered by employer-based plans or Medicaid.When asked about the lawsuit last week, Scott briefly outlined changes he thinks could lower health-insurance costs. The governor said the changes should be incremental but said he supports allowing more competition (among insurers), we gotta let people buy the insurance that fits for their family and weve got to reward people for taking care of themselves.ŽPrior to the federal law, there was no requirement in Florida that insurance companies offer policies to people, regardless of their pre-existing medi-cal conditions. Scott has maintained that he sup-ports the protections that policies must be sold to the sick.But the federal law also makes clear that insurance companies cannot charge higher premiums based on pre-existing conditions or use of health care services. It established adjusted community rating, which barred insurers from rais-ing premiums based on health status, medical claims or gender, among other things.When pressed about the price protections, Scott campaign spokes-person Lauren Schenone said the governor does not agree with efforts to remove pre-existing conditions. Period.ŽBut Marshall Kapp, professor emeritus and former director of Florida State University Center for Innovative Collaboration in Medicine and Law, said maintaining pricing protections for sick people while reward-ing those who are healthy could be at odds.There does seem to be a tension between those two things,Ž Kapp told The News Service of Florida. SCOTTFrom Page A3 to those tracks. I was told that I bounced from support beam to support beam like a pinball but I dont know that, I was told that. I dont remember any of that.Ill never forget that in my life. There was people still on the ride, there was screaming. One (person) was dangling, the other was [unintelligible]. Everyone was screaming and crying, and it was terrifying.ŽAlso on Mo nday, Orlando law firm Morgan & Morgan confirmed that Bostic is among three vic-tims being represented by the firm. At a press confer-ence in Orlando, attorney Matt Morgan announced that the firm has hired two amusement industry safety experts to investigate the circumstances surrounding the Thursday night accident in preparation for potential legal action.We hope to shed a little bit more light on what happened in this tragic failure of the roller coaster,Ž Morgan said at the firms Orlando office. Our clients came to Day-tona Beach with healthy bodies, looking forward to their summer vacation. They will leave Daytona Beach with broken bones and with walkers. Many of them forever (will) have their lives changed as a direct result of the failure of this roller coaster. Make no mistake: There is no question there was a fail-ure of this particular roller coaster. This event would not have happened had there not been a failure.ŽTo determine the accidents cause, the law firm has hired a father-son team of experts in amuse-ment park safety: Bill Avery Sr., an amusement ride and device safety consultant and president of Orlando-based Avery Safety Consulting; and his son Brian Avery, a Univer-sity of Florida professor and operational attractions safety expert.Both men said on Monday that they will be seeking past inspection records for the ride, information on the rides history including details on the frequency and types of safety tests that had been conducted on it.Its premature to come out with a final root cause,Ž said Bill Avery, adding that the rides proximity to the salt air and water on the beach should have been a factor in its maintenance. Corrosion is an ongoing factor for anyone who operates under those con-ditions. It gets back to what kind of maintenance has been done and has it been done frequently.ŽAvery also mentioned a specific piece of equipment that he wanted to examine, the rides safety restraints.The restraints are made to keep you in the ride when its operating correctly and when its not operating correctly,Ž Avery said.Other than Bostic, Morgan declined to reveal the identities of the law firms remaining clients, but did confirm that they are all Kentucky residents. The group, a party of 10, all worked for the same company, according to the ABC interview. The Associated Press reported the company is Alternative Outlook LLC, based out of Hindman, Kentucky, that provides services for the developmentally disabled.In all, 10 people either were ejected or had to be rescued and nine of them wound up hospitalized, according to spokeswomen with the Daytona Beach Fire Department and Hali-fax Health Medical Center.In other recent develop-ments, work crews used a crane, a hook, a cable and a blow torch on Saturday afternoon, less than 48 hours after the accident, to disconnect the three disabled coaster cars and lift them from the steel track onto a nearby flatbed trailer.Also over the weekend, a group of Florida Democrats on Sunday called for Floridas Department of Agriculture, which inspected the ride on Thursday, hours before the accident, to be held accountable, as well as the agencys head, Adam Putnam, who also is a can-didate for governor.This is unacceptable,Ž said Susanne Raines, presi-dent of the Democratic Club of Northern Volusia County. Its supposed to be the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services „ not corporate services, not NRA services. Adam Putnam needs to go back to Tallahassee and get his own house in order before he campaigns for another job.ŽDepartment of Agriculture spokeswoman Jennifer Meale forwarded a statement originally released on Friday, stating that the department has launched an investigation to determine the cause of the accident, and anyone who should be held accountable will be held accountable.ŽAt this point, Morgan said he doesnt foresee legal action against the Department of Agriculture, the agency responsible for inspecting amusement rides.Our primary targets will be the ride operator, the ride manufacturer and the owner of the ride itself,Ž Morgan said.The likelihood of litiga-tion would depend on the amount of insurance cov-erage on the ride, Morgan said, adding that the legal minimum for operating such rides was $1 million.Obviously, $1 mil-lion will not be enough to cover the magnitude of this loss,Ž Morgan said. These are really serious injuries; these are not minor situations that were dealing with.For them (victims), it was beyond terrifying. They saw their friends falling from the coaster like pinballs through the track. Its an experience that will haunt them forever. You dont get over that.Ž ACCIDENTFrom Page A3There are likely to be few surprises in the big contests, where at least two more major Democrats, Orlando businessman Chris King and Palm Beach billionaire Jeff Greene plan to file as candidates for governor.Republican Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and U.S. Rep.

Putnam has raised nearly $31 mil-lion through May for his campaign account and his Florida Grown political committee, topping the field of candidates, according to the latest campaign finance reports.But on qualifyings opening day, the Repub-licans first to formally file were longshot contenders Don Baldauf, a 59-year-old Bradenton alarm contractor, and Bruce Nathan, a Palm City physical therapist.I think you can say Im pretty serious after I put down my very own check for about $8,000,Ž said Baldauf, who said he hopes to attract support from the GOPs Tea Party wing for his candidacy. Money is always a seri-ous issue in campaigns. Among Democrats, Levine has raised more than $16 million for his campaign and his All About Florida political committee … with $8.8 million coming from loans and contribu-tions hes made to his own campaign. Greene, who has a net worth of $3.8 billion, spent almost $23 mil-lion of his own money in 2010, losing the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate. Greene has said this time around, hes willing to spend plenty more … throwing out figures ranging from $50 million to $200 million.In Cabinet contests, former state senator Jeremy Ring, a Margate Democrat, was among the first to qualify for the states chief financial officer post, where Republican CFO Jimmy Patronis is expected to be on the ballot for the first time.Patronis was appointed last year by Gov. Rick Scott to replace two-term Republican CFO Jeff Atwater, who stepped down to take an admin-istrative job at Florida Atlantic University.Cabinet races for attorney general and agriculture commissioner feature no incumbents and are drawing a stampede of candidates, with most expected to qualify by weeks end. RACESFrom Page A3 to be handcuffed to the gurney. He was taken to an area hospital, where he was cleared by a doctor but then exposed himself.On the way to jail, "he began to turn upside down in the back seat of the vehicle, placing his neck on the seat and his feet on the roof," a report states. "After complaining of neck and back pain."He also said he was going to urinate in the back seat of the patrol car. At the jail, he made racial slurs and had to be put into a special restraint chairŽ and placed in a pri-vate holding cell until he could control himself.ŽHe was charged with aggravated fleeing with injury or damage, resist-ing arrest, DUI with property damage, and hit and run. Police bust area stores for selling alcohol to minorsPolice and Lake County sheriffs investigators last week issued 29 misde-meanor citations and made one arrest to store clerks for selling alcohol to minors.The probe, which took place on Wednesday and Thursday, involved 78 stores, with 30 breaking the law selling to underage cus-tomers. The one arrest, in the Clermont area, was for an individual charged with the same offense last year. Islam Niyazov, 50, was arrested last year, but the State Attorneys Office dropped the charge.The operation included the sheriff's Special Investigation's Unit and undercover officers from the Tavares, Clermont, Eustis and the Leesburg police departments. BRIEFSFrom Page A3Niyazov their doctors recommend it has set off a partisan firestorm, with Morgan „ a political rainmaker and registered Democrat who largely bankrolled the 2016 constitutional amendment „ stirring the political pot.Morgan told The News Service of Florida he had expected the appellate court to keep Gievers ruling on hold.Not surprised. Rick Scott could end the appeal today. It will cost him his Senate bid. The makers of opioids are cheering him on,Ž Morgan wrote in an email Monday.Morgan has repeatedly asked Scott to drop the appeal, warning that the governors opposition to smokable medical mari-juana will alienate moderate Republicans and independents in the governors quest to oust U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson in November.Nelson, a Democrat, recently came out in sup-port of doctor-ordered smokable marijuana for sick patients, as have each of the Democratic candi-dates seeking to replace Scott as governor.In her June 5 order lifting the stay, Gievers wrote that plaintiffs Cathy Jordan, a Lou Geh-rigs disease patient who credits smoking mari-juana with saving her life, and Diana Dodson, who has neuralgia associated with HIV, would suffer without having access to smokable marijuana.Individual patients Jordan and Dodson are exposed to irreparable harm on two fronts. First, they cannot legally access the treatment recommended for them. Second, they face poten-tial criminal prosecution for possession and use of the medicinal substance,Ž the judge wrote.On the other hand, there is no evidence the defendants (the state) will suffer harm if the stay is vacated,Ž the judge wrote.Lifting the stay preserves the status quo by returning the law to its previous state as it existed following the 2016 adoption of the constitutional medical marijuana rightsŽ and before the 2017 law went into effect, she added.But during a hearing before Gievers, Assistant Attorney General Karen Brodeen argued that there was no hurry for the stay to be lifted, in part because of a lengthy state rulemaking process. Smokable pot wont be available for a long time,Ž if the courts ultimately decide that it is legal, Bro-deen said. POTFrom Page A3

He sentenced Naffziger, 42, to the suspended 10-year sentence for the first-degree felony and five for the third-degree felony credit card charge.Briggs acknowledged that her testimony in April was helpful to the state, but he said she has been a disappointmentŽ since he let her out of jail on bond. One of those conditions was that she was to live in a stable, safe place. That didnt pan out, he said. I assume it was because of your behavior.ŽMariotti was sentenced to life in prison for murder. He narrowly escaped the death sentence when one of the 12 jurors recommended life.He said he had almost no certainty that anything other than incarcerationŽ would solve anything, but added, Im constantly surprised.ŽNaffzigers lawyer, Julian Kemp, said she was willing to pay back the $4,171 from Montgomerys stolen credit card. She was also willing to get mental health counseling.Kemp said she is already getting counseling and testifiedMondaythat Naffziger gets prescrip-tion drugs for a variety of illnesses, including post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety.Briggs ordered her to immediately report to probation officials with a list of prescriptions andNaffzigers medical records.Kemp said Naffziger didnt know that Mariotti had strangled Montgom-ery in her Palmora Park home in Leesburg. She had been lured into an unholy alliance when Mariotti called her and said, We can make some money.ŽShe testified at Mariottis trial that he first took her to Montgomerys house in Palmora Park on June 18, 2016. He left her there for about an hour to go out and buy drugs, using Montgom-erys car. She sat in a chair and noticed someone she thought was sleeping on a couch with a cover over her face.Naffziger testified that four days later, Mariotti brought her back to Montgomerys house, which had a ter-rible smell.Ž She said he ordered her to help move Montgomerys body.She refused, Kemp said, but he said, Youll help or youll be right next to her.ŽKemp also reminded the judge that she took Leesburg detectives to the Ocala National Forest in an attempt to recover Montgomerys body.I guess you did your best,Ž Briggs saidMonday, but noted that Montgomerys body was never found.Naffziger wept and told the judge, Im sorry.ŽOutside the courtroom when the sentencing was completed, Marcie and other family members talked to Assistant State Attorney Rich Buxman and expressed their disappointment.She was diagnosed as bipolar when she was 11. She would run away. She lived in the woods, she was smoking weed and hanging out with the wrongcrowd,Ž Marcie said.She blamed her family,Ž and she never took responsibility, she noted.I dont think youve ever had that inner meet-ing with yourself that says Im going to go down a different path. Youve been on this path for a long time,Ž Briggs told Naffziger, referring to the people she hangs out with and the drugs she takes. You have to decide.ŽShe can b„„„-t any-body,Ž Marcie said. Shes probably high right now.Ž SENTENCEFrom Page A1 alongside Wray and repeated the reports central conclusions that the Clinton inves-tigation was plagued by leadership missteps but not tainted by political bias.The report blasted FBI actions during the 2016 investigation into whether Clinton, the Democratic presidential candidate, had mishandled classified information on her private email server when she was secretary of state.It said anti-Donald Trump text messages exchanged by FBI employees who worked on the investigation cast a cloud on the agencys handling of the probe and damaged its reputation. It also said that fired FBI Director James Comey repeatedly broke from protocol, including when he publicly announced his recommendation against charging Clin-ton and when he bucked the judgment of Justice Department bosses by alerting Congress months later that the investigation was being reopened because of newly discovered emails.Republicans, increas-ingly skeptical of special counsel Robert Muellers investigation into potential coordination between Russia and Trumps Republican presidential campaign, said Monday they werent convinced by the reports conclusion that the decision to spare Clinton from criminal charges was free from bias, or by reassurances that the problems were limited to just a handful of employees. Trump him-self had eagerly awaited the inspector generals report in hopes that criticism of Comey and the FBI could discredit Muellers investigation.There is a serious problem with the culture at FBI headquarters,Ž said Utah Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch.The Republican com-mittee chairman, Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, drew a contrast between what he said were aggressive actions taken during Muellers investigation and the kid-glove treatmentŽ that Grassley maintained had occurred during the Clinton investigation.The Justice Department faces a serious credibility problem because millions of Americans suspect that there is a double standard,Ž Grassley said. They see a story of kid-glove treatment for one side and bare-knuckle tactics for the other. They see politics in that story.Ž FBIFrom Page A1 the practice of separating immigrant parents and children along the nations southern border is cruelŽ and ?immoralŽ and breaks my heart.Ž Bush likened the policy to the internment of Jap-anese-Americans during World War II.Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker cited the administrations cruel and inhumanŽ policy separating children from their parents in reversing a decision to send a National Guard helicopter from his state to the Mexican border. Migrant advocates announced they would rally outside the federal courthouse in Phoenix on Monday afternoon to pro-test the policy.President Donald Trump emphatically defended his adminis-trations policy Monday, again falsely blaming Democrats.The United States will not be a migrant camp and it will not be a refugee hold-ing facility,Ž he declared. Not on my watch.Ž In San Diego, Rep. Juan Vargas and the Congres-sional Hispanic Caucus were leading members of Congress on a visit Monday to several immigration detention facilities. Vargas, Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and other U.S. lawmakers hoped to meet with men, women and children detained at the international boundary.Inside the South Texas warehouse, hundreds of immigration children waited inside chain-link enclosures. Scattered about were bottles of water, bags of chips and blankets that looked like large sheets of metal foil.It was the same facil-ity the U.S. Border Patrol allowed reporters to briefly visit on Sunday. Agents did not allow reporters to interview detainees or take photos.More than 1,100 people were inside the large, dark facility, which is divided into separate wings for unaccompanied children, adults on their own, and mothers and fathers with children. The cages in each wing open out into common areas so that detainees can use portable restrooms. The overhead lighting in the warehouse stays on around the clock.At the federal courthouse in McAllen on Monday, some among the estimated 80 immigrants preparing to plead guilty on immigration charges asked the judge questions such as, Whats going to happen to my daughter?Ž and What will happen to my son?ŽAttorneys at the hearings said the immigrants had brought several dozen boys and girls with them to the U.S., and the judge replied that he didnt know what would happen to their children. BORDERFrom Page A1and May after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the new zero-toleranceŽ policy that refers all cases of illegal entry for criminal prosecution. Prior procedure had limited prosecution for many family entrants, in part because regulations pro-hibit detaining children with their parents since the children are not charged with a crime and the parents are.The policy change was meant to deter unlawful crossings „ and Sessions issued a warning last month to those entering the U.S. ille-gally that their children inevitably for a period of time might be in dif-ferent conditions.ŽThe current holding areas have drawn wide-spread attention after journalists gained access to one site Sunday. At a McAllen, Texas, deten-tion center hundreds of immigrant children wait in a series of cages created by metal fencing. One cage had 20 children inside. Scattered about are bottles of water, bags of chips and large foil sheets intended to serve as blankets.Administration offi-cials said they do not like the family separations either „ calling it the result of legal loopholes „ but insist migrants who arrive illegally simply wont be released or loosely kept track of.The United States will not be a migrant camp and it will not be a refugee holding facility,Ž Trump declared. Not on my watch.ŽSessions, on Monday, echoed the administra-tions defense of the zero tolerance policy, and called on Congress to act.We do not want to separate parents from their children,Ž he said. If we build the wall, if we pass legislation to end the lawlessness, we wont face these terrible choices.ŽMindful of the national outcry, lawmakers in both parties rushed Monday to devise a targeted legislative fix.GOP senators, includ-ing Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Jeff Flake of Arizona and Susan Collins of Maine, said they were consider-ing legislation that would keep migrant families together; provide addi-tional judges so detained families would face shorter waiting periods; and provide facilities for the families to stay.Graham said he talked Mondayto about 40 senators, including Democrats, but not Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Its a concept it seems everybody is jumping on board,Ž he said.

But it also could be real, since the administration already has imposed duties on $50 billion worth of Chinese imports, as well as steel and aluminum from China, the European Union, Canada and Mexico.Tariffs against China include some autos and parts but if those spread to Canada and Mexico, the impact will be far larger because auto manufac-turing has been integrated between the three countries for nearly a quarter Experts say auto tari s would raise prices, cost jobsMARKET WATCHDow 24,987.47 103.01 Nasdaq 7,747.03 0.65 S&P 2,773.75 5.91 Russell 1,692.46 8.55 NYSE 12,708.63 26.01 COMMODITIES REVIEWGold 1,276.20 1.60 Silver 16.412 .040 Platinum 883.90 3.90 Copper 3.1035 .0375 Oil 65.85 0.79MARKET MOVERS€ Rent-A-Center Inc.: Up $2.65 to $14.68 „ The chain, which leases household goods on a rentto-own basis, accepted an offer of $15 a share from Vintage Capital Management. € Inc.: Up 17 cents to $43.76 „ Google said it will invest $550 million in the Chinese e-commerce company. century.The Commerce Depart-ment said in a statement last week that it has just launched its investigation into whether imports of auto and auto parts threaten to impair the national secu-rity. That investigation, which has only just begun, will inform recommendations to the president for action or inaction.ŽIf the wider auto tariffs are imposed, industry experts say they will disrupt a decades-old symbiotic parts supply chain, raise vehicle prices, cut newvehicle sales, cost jobs in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, and even slow related sectors of the economy.It seems like it is going to be so devastating that I cant imagine that theyre actually going to do it,Ž said Kristen Dziczek, vice president of labor and economics at the Center for Automotive Research, an industry think tank.Trump, who was sniping on Twitter at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after a contentious economic summit of the Group of Seven earlier this month, told the Commerce Department to look at national security reasons to justify tariffs with hopes of bringing factory jobs to the U.S.He tweeted that the administration would look at tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!ŽBut experts predict the tariffs likely would do the opposite, slowing the economy as other countries retaliate. Heres what they say is likely to happen: Auto prices rise, sales fallThe tariffs would be charged on parts and assembled autos. Canada, Mexico and others would likely retaliate with duties, and automakers wont be able to absorb all of the increases. So they will have to raise prices. Imported parts, which all cars and trucks have, will cost more, further raising costs.Trucks cross the Ambassador Bridge on June 12 from Windsor, Ontario, into Detroit.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said Thursday: We dont want kids to be separated from their parents.Ž Will that edict be enough to drive a solution? One might think so, except that immigration bills and Congress have proved a frustratingly inert combination for years. If lawmakers had summoned the courage last year or 10 years ago to fix the broken immigration system, these messes would be avoided. Remember that the so-called Dreamers „ the young foreigners who grew up in the U.S. after being brought here without permission „ are still living in limbo. The current issue with separating children stems from Attorney General Jeff Sessions insistence on a zero-tolerance policy of prosecuting people for violating immigration laws. Locking up parents raises the question of what to do with the children. In nearly 2,000 instances, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has separated them. The reasoning is linked to a 1997 court case that requires children to be sheltered in the least restrictive immigration facility possible. In other words, kids cant be detained with their parents. But we just get lost in that logic. More likely, the threat of grabbing children is a scare tactic by the Trump administration to dissuade parents from crossing the border or seeking asylum. Until Sessions changed the rules, immigration authorities typically kept families together by releasing them with orders to appear in court. Court case or not, separating children from parents is heartless. Ryan and a group of House Republicans are working on a bill that would resolve both the treatment of migrant children and the Dreamers. So far, Democrats are staying away. Ryans bill would provide $25 billion for border security, including money to build the wall that President Donald Trump obsesses about. It would end child separations and give the Dreamers a path to stay in the country legally. It would tighten legal immigration by ending the diversity lottery and family member programs. Hard-liners have their own version. Getting a bill through the House and onto the Senate and the presidents desk should be doable. Theres a governing principle at stake that says all people, especially children, should be treated with fairness and compassion. Both the Dreamers and the separated children were brought to the U.S. by adults. The children should not be unduly punished for the decisions of their parents. An overwhelming percentage of Americans want to give lawabiding Dreamers a chance to stay in the U.S. Were certain most Americans also are appalled by the government dividing families. Congress has failed on immigration reform so many times. It would be a great relief „ as well as just and humane „ if lawmakers seized on this moment to pass this legislation. It will be tragic if Congress fails again. From Tribune News Service.ANOTHER OPINIONDont separate immigrant kids from parentsEver since the first college campus was created, its program of studies, modes of instruction and standards have, one way or the other, been controlled by the college and its faculty. Campuses were, relatively speaking, intellectually pristine, information-rich enclaves, separated from the rest of the information-poor world. Fast forward to the beginning of the community college movement and the passage of the GI Bill in late-1940s America. Suddenly, colleges were not only for the elite, but they had overtly economic „ as well as intellectual „ purposes. Over the last 70 years, there have been multiple changes in post-secondary education and the employment landscape. The basic model, however, that a degree or certificate from a college signals that the individual is intellectually prepared and ready to work, has remained dominant. Today, there is a revolution underway, and the credibility of even those core signaling devices is under assault from forces inside and outside the academy. At the heart of this revolution lie two realities, one very old and the other brand new. First, the old: As long as there has been folklore in America, we have known that life herself is a magnificent teacher. Think of phrases such as live and learnŽ, the school of hard knocks and older, but wiser.Ž Maryland proposal for free community college follows national trend. But results arent clear. Even when Canadian researcher Allen Tough proved that the average adult spends about 12 hours a week learning purposefully in their daily life, most colleges and employers, as well as adult learners, continued to ignore the value of that learning. This learning discriminationŽ placed a determinative value on where and when you learned something, not how well you knew a topic and could apply the knowledge. So, colleges won,Ž and personal learning lost.Ž As a result, this personalŽ „ or experiential „ learning, despite it constituting well more than half of the learning we do in a lifetime, has been largely ignored by colleges and employers. The new reality is the technological capacity that is changing the face of the world, including the world of higher education and employment. Now, the entire curriculum of MIT, among other colleges, is available online, for free. Job requirements can be searched and dissected, matching the knowledge, behavior, skills and abilities needed for a specific career path with those held by an individual or taught by a college. And adult-friendlyŽ colleges are aligning learners personal and experiential learning with their degree requirements, thus awarding advanced standing for that learning. Furthermore, they are aligning their degree requirements with work requirements, including behaviors and cross-cutting intellectual skills such as critical thinking and teamwork. These two realities „ the power of personal learning and the technological development to harness its value „ are redefining the pathway to the degree. In other cases, it is eliminating the need for the degree and blowing through the parchment ceilingŽ that has stymied and frustrated so many adults. Using evidence-based assessments, learners knowledge can be described and applied directly to job and other real-life requirements. And knowledge gained on the-job, in the community or in other venues, such as the armed services, can be applied for academic and economic value, deepening the learners personal understanding of their learning as well as the value of that learning academically and economically. Imagine a world in which you can do all of the following from your living room: Calculate your current profile of knowledge, skills, behaviors and abilities; Describe the goal(s) you have for your personal or professional growth; Determine the gap between what you presently knowŽ and what knowledge you need to gain to meet your goal; And chart your learning path forward to meet that goal, either with a college, an informal learning group, an employer, or on your own. These are the benefits of free-range learning in a digital world and driven by the new rules and the new eco-system that is evolving to support you and your learning throughout life. And, more broadly, by bridging this divide for all who qualify, it can only improve the social, civic and economic future of our country. Peter Smith, Ph.D., is the Orkand Endowed Chair and Professor of Innovative Practices in Higher Education at University of Maryland University College.ANOTHER OPINIONRecognizing the value of experience Gun dealers who break the law by turning a blind eye to federal licensing rules are as dangerous to society as people who have no right to a possess a firearm in the first place. Yet a recent report shows that the federal agency responsible for policing the legal gun trade routinely goes soft on dealers who violate the law. This is not the only gap in the system, but also a breach that undermines the foundation of the nations gun safety protections. The New York Times recently reported that even as federal investigators inspecting the nations gun stores regularly find violations of the law, higher-ups at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives routinely overrule them. They allow gun dealers who fail inspections to keep their licenses even after they were previously warned on the rules, according to records and interviews with current and former law enforcement officials. Of about 11,000 inspections of federally licensed firearms dealers in 2016-17, more than half were cited for violations, the Times reported „ yet less than 1 percent of all inspections resulted in the loss of a license. Many violations, as the newspaper noted, were minor: stores made clerical and bookkeeping errors or failed to manage their records appropriately. But there were also many examples of serious violations. One store was cited for not conducting a criminal background check before selling a gun. Another acknowledged that it actively tried to circumvent the gun laws. One seller threatened an ATF officer; another sold a gun to a customer who identified himself as a felon. Felons cannot legally possess a gun. All were previously cited by the ATF, and in each case, supervisors overrode the staff recommendations that the stores licenses be revoked. Allowing even one gun into the wrong hands could result in a tragedy. Were not selling ice cream here,Ž one retired ATF inspector said. If you screw up, somebody can be killed.Ž The light punishment reflects another dimension of the gun lobbys clout in Congress. For gun dealers to lose their license, the ATF must prove not only that gun dealers broke the law but that they intended to do so. One former inspector said the hurdle was so high that it prompted the agency to bend over backwardsŽ to bring dealers into compliance rather than to risk losing a case in court. The Times review found that even after stores had been warned they continued to violate the law „ and the agency allowed them to continue operating. This is a ridiculous operating practice for regulating one of the most dangerous possessions in society. It rewards the worst operators in the industry and reduces federal law enforcement to a paper tiger. The recent mass shootings have highlighted how no one gun safety measure works in isolation. But even the ideal safety net is meaningless if authorities lack the power and intention to enforce the spirit of the law. Gun dealers who dont follow the law should not be allowed to profit from noncompliance. Congress needs to give the ATF more direct authority and the resources it needs to ensure that dealers are acting responsibly. It also needs to demand a greater sense of accountability at the agency. Inspectors shouldnt have to keep pleading with gun dealers to behave as the law intends. Tampa Bay Times ANOTHER OPINIONATF should get tougher on gun dealers who violate the law

PAGE 13 | Tuesday, June 19, 2018 B3the longest streaks in both categories. To put the Seminoles' run of 40-win seasons in context, Louis-ville is next with seven.Florida State has accomplished everything under Martin except win a national championship. His teams have made 16 trips to the College World Series including last year but have only reached the finals twice (1986 and '99).The Seminoles were 43-19 and won their eighth Atlantic Coast Conference title this season but were eliminated in the Tallahassee Regional. They lost on a walk-off homer by Mississippi State's Elijah MacNamee after Martin decided to remain with pitcher Drew Parrish despite the sophomore sitting 2 hours for a rain delay after throwing 109 pitches. The left-hander ended up throwing 133 pitches in the 3-2 loss on June 2.Martin was heavily criticized on social media, including by incoming Baseball Hall of Famer Chipper Jones, due to the chance of Parrish suffering an arm injury. Martin did not second guess his decision."I am not going to com-ment in any way because it is in the past," Martin said. "Drew will th row in the next two weeks. I think that's really all I need to say." MARTINFrom Page B1Ive been back to Wildwood and Im really looking forward to getting everyone together and interacting with the kids.ŽThe camp is sanctioned by World Sports Alumni, which proclaims itself the only professional athlete association in the world that connects athletes from all sports under one umbrella. Dixon is president of the Pro Football International Board. Dixon said about 100 youngsters between the ages of 5 and 18 have already signed up for the camp, with some participants coming from as far away as Melbourne and Miami to take part. There is still room for more, Dixon added, and parents can sign their kids up at worldsportsalumni. com. Tuition for the camp is $60 per participant.This is the first football camp Ive seen that has brought together as many as 15 former players to offer instruction and life lessons,Ž said Dixon. We want everyone to walk away feeling as if they learned about football and life. We all have a story to tell; I can talk about how I made things tougher because I didnt keep up with classwork. A lot of these guys will take some time and speak to the kids about things that pertain to everyday life and how they learned from those experiences.ŽDixon said when formulating ideas for the camp, he had no problem finding former professionals to be instructors.So many of these guys were looking for ways to give back and help young players try to achieve their dreams,Ž said Dixon. Nowadays, a lot of people seem to have a problem with professional athletes, particularly professional football players. They can think what they want, but what they might not realize is that most play-ers „ former and current „ will do anything they can to help young people and their communities.Things like that dont often get talked about.ŽNot only will youngsters get something out of the camp, but parents can, too. Dixon said parents can stay at the camp and watch the proceedings from the stands.Once the camps wraps up, parents will be welcomed on the field for autographs and to take photos with the professionals.Dixon hopes to build on the camp and transform it into an annual event. To that end, he is looking for spon-sors „ for this and future camps „ to help offset costs and keep registration fees affordable.At the end of the day, we want to get the kids excited about football and life,Ž said Dixon. We want to help them by providing instruc-tion and encouragement. Lake and Sumter counties are filled with talent. The basketball programs at Wildwood and Leesburg, along with the local student athletes who sign with col-leges all around the country, are proof of that. It doesnt matter where youre from; anyone can aim for the stars and achieve their dreams. Im proof of that.Ž DREAMSFrom Page B1 Gabe Holt, which put the Red Raiders ahead to stay 3-1. Schwarz also did not have his foot on the bag when catcher Brady Smith fired a throw to first while attempting to get Texas Tech runner Cody Farhat out following a strikeout on a wild pitch to start the ninth inning. Farhat scored Texas Techs final run on an RBI single from Holt.Schwarz was playing just his eighth game at first base on the season and first game at first since May 13 against Georgia. Hes started 45 games at catcher this season, but OSullivan opted to play him at first base due to concerns about how his hand would hold up for nine innings behind the plate. Schwarz was not inserted at designated hitter because that is the regular spot for junior Nelson Maldonado, who belted a two-run homer Sunday. Maldonado could play outfield, but that would mean Florida would need to bench one of its three starting outfielders, left fielder Austin Langworthy, center fielder Nick Horvath or right fielder Wil Dalton.At the plate, Schwarz went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts. That dropped Schwarz to .319 on the season with 12 home runs and 46 RBIs.He hasn't played in a while,Ž OSullivan said. The first at-bat was pretty good. He hit the ball to the warning track the other way. He had a good approach. We're here because he's one of the main reasons why we're here. And he felt like he could play tonight and I wasn't going to juggle the whole lineup. Just put him right in there and see what happens.We did that a couple of years ago with Pete Alonso and he had a really good tournament. So I'm just happy that JJ went out there for his team and gave a great effort.ŽSchwarz wasnt the only Gator to struggle in the field Sunday night. Shortstop Deacon Liput had a throwing error, just his fifth of the season, which extended Texas Techs two-run fifth inning. Langworthy mis-played a fly ball to deep left field in the eighth inning.I can't put my finger on it,Ž OSullivan said of the defensive problems. I do know when we start struggling defensively we start doing some more live defense during practice. Actually we do it every day. We hadn't done that up until the last part of the year, but once we start struggling defensively we tried to play some games, you know, some defensive live stuff during practice and our defense got back on track. But obviously tonight it hurt us a little more.ŽOffensively, Florida will be looking to jump-start a lineup that went 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position and 1 for 15 with runners on base against Texas Tech. Florida has scored three runs or less in each of its last three games.We went through all the pitchers,Ž OSullivan said. We knew exactly what they were going to do „ start with their lefty and then go to (Ryan) Shetter and then go to their little right-hander there with a good arm. We were prepared. We went through everybody and they just executed some pitches.Ž Game 4: Texas Tech 6, Florida 3Texas Tech; 000; 122; 001„6 12 1 Florida; 001; 000; 200„3 5 1 Dusek, Shetter (3), Harpenau (7) and Fulford; Singer, Butler (7), Byrne (8) and Girand, Smith (7).

[GATEHOUSE MEDIA FILE] up for it and playing the best and playing really, really hard golf courses.ŽShinnecock went from ridiculously hard on Saturday to overly gentle on Sunday, though the ultimate measure was Koepka playing the final 36 holes in even par to win. He finished at 1-over 281, the first time in five years that no one broke par at the U.S. Open.The USGA doesnt like to talk about scores, but thats the identity of this major.And for now, majors define Koepka.Norman gets beat up for the number of majors he could have won, including at Shinnecock Hills in 1986, the year he had the 54-hole lead at all four majors. The Shark also had 75 victories around the world and was No. 1 longer than any other player until Tiger Woods came along.Sunday at Shinnecock began with a four-way tie for the lead, with the past two U.S. Open champi-ons „ Koepka and Dustin Johnson „ playing in the penultimate group. They are close friends off the course, and even worked out together in the morn-ing before their last two rounds.Koepka went 1 up on U.S. Open trophies. Still, he was stumped when asked who was ahead in their back-and-forth.Johnson, still only 33 but much like Norman, hasnt cashed in at the majors as much as he should have. Attribute that to a cold putter on the weekend at Shinnecock, which also held him back at Augusta in April.Even so, he has 18 victo-ries and is the only player to sweep the World Golf Championships, small fields with the best players.Hes won every year hes been out here. Thats incredible,Ž Koepka said. I dont know how long hes been out here, 11 years? How many wins has got, 18? Thats pretty good. Ive got some catch-ing up to do.ŽKoepka believes John-son will win another U.S. Open and said he would end his career as among the best to ever play. That will require more than one additional major, for sure, though Johnson already is well ahead in the victory count. Thats the next step for Koepka, at least until the next major.Before earning his PGA Tour card, Koepka won the Turkish Airlines Open against a strong European Tour field that included Henrik Stenson, S ergio Garcia, Branden Grace and Ian Poulter. Late last year, he registered a nine-shot victory in the Dunlop Phoenix, one of the strongest Japan Golf Tour events. KOEPKAFrom Page B1

DEAR ABBY: A dear friend has been battling cervical cancer. Her condition has left her dependent on a colostomy bag. She's not shy about discussing it on Facebook and in public, where she speaks loudly. I have tried to be understanding and supportive, but there are limits. My problem is, she's hell-bent on making sure I see this colostomy bag by frequently checking to see if it's full, even after returning from the bathroom where I'm certain she checked it. More recently, we were at a restaurant and she exposed her bag in full view of others while they were eating. (The bag was full!) Not only was it disgusting, it's also unhygienic should the bag become disconnected or rupture. Am I insensitive for thinking this is inappropriate and that she should excuse herself to go to the bathroom? -NAUSEATED IN MICHIGAN DEAR NAUSEATED: No, I don't think you are insensitive. While a colostomy bag is nothing to be ashamed of, because it involves human waste, decorum dictates that it be kept away from the dining table. Have a frank talk with your friend, tell her her behavior is inappropriate, and ask her not to do it in front of you.DEAR ABBY: I grew up in the generation where if you were gay and you came "out of the closet," as it was called, you were not accepted in the community. A lot has changed since then. However, when it hits close to home, it's difcult for me to deal with. My 19-year-old daughter told me three years ago that she's gay. At rst I thought she was going through a phase and she was trying to nd herself. Now she's dating girls her age, and I'm having a difcult time accepting it. Can you help me? -STRUGGLING MOTHER IN ILLINOIS DEAR STRUGGLING: Be glad we're not living in the bad old days because the ones we're living in are healthier for everyone. Start by congratulating yourself for having raised a daughter who is honest about her feelings and determined to live her life authentically. While some things may be different than you fantasized when she was little, it does not mean she won't be happy, successful and possibly a parent, if she wishes. Support her as she navigates through her journey in life. If you do, you -and she -will be ne.DEAR ABBY: During the last year, a female friend of mine has started suggesting that she wants more from our relationship than just a friendship. She has had a history of doing this whenever she becomes friends with a guy. When she started sending me pictures that became more and more suggestive, I decided to distance myself from her. But in the last month, she has been getting increasingly bold with her advances. How do I handle this without hurting her? -FRIEND AND NOTHING MORE IN IOWA DEAR FRIEND: Tell your friend you like her, but what she has been doing is making you increasingly uncomfortable. Be direct about saying you are not interested in a sexual relationship with her. Then, if she persists, continue to distance yourself from her. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. How to play: Fill in the blank squares with the numbers 1 through 9 so that each horizontal row, vertical column and nine-square sub-grid contains no repeated numbers. Puzzles range in diculty from one to six stars. The solution to todays puzzle will be in tomorrows paper. YESTERDAYS SOLUTION BRIDGE CRYPTOQUOTE HOROSCOPES TODAY IN HISTORY DIVERSIONS HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR TUESDAY, JUNE 19, 2018:This year you often feel tense, as you see and hear so many different views and solutions. You will be successful, but you also want to be healthy. Develop some stress-busting habits. If you are single, you might meet someone special from out of the blue. From fall onward, you will feel particularly cared for. If you are attached, develop a shared interest or hobby with your sweetie. As a result, you will nd that your bond strengthens. VIRGO might be very instrumental in your decision-making process.ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) You count on your intuition when making decisions. At times, you might be getting mixed messages. Opportunities come through a close relationship or friendship. Even if you trust this person, it doesnt mean that all of his or her ideas t your situation. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Tap into your creativity to nd solutions. Confusion could continue to be an issue in certain relationships. Wait until there is some clarity. You need to approach a situation with respect for different styles; be open to a more liberal slant. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) You are centered and focused. Your priorities reect who you are, and they tend to involve your home and family. Confusion surrounds joint nances and choices. You have the energy to handle everything you must. A partner could be more demanding than usual. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Your upbeat personality emerges. Ask as many questions as you need to. Listen to your inner voice when dealing with a partner. You might nd that this person seems to be distancing himor herself. Be resourceful in how you draw him or her in. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Your concerns revolve around your nances and how much you give to others. On some level, you could be overwhelmed. You might be pleasantly surprised by how a friend offers to pitch in. Recognize that a trip to the doctor might be appropriate. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Your charisma draws others toward you. You often are overwhelmed by situations and what occurs. Remain sure of yourself and ready to move in a new direction. Your creativity and intellect help you sort through a confusing comment or situation. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Remain sensitive to a loved one. Know that what this person says about you has little to do with his or her true feelings. Activity involving your nances seems busier than usual, whether money is coming in or going out of your wallet. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Beam in more of what you want. How you say what you think and how you approach the matter could be quite different. Try to be more in sync, and you will be in a stronger position. Listen to a wiser person and you will gain insight. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) You nd tension mounting, no matter what you do. Your ability to let go of a problematic matter could dene your day. Do your best to enjoy yourself despite someone elses criticism. Your easygoing nature is one of the reasons you are successful. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Try harder to identify with a loved one. You will open up to new visions and different ways of looking at a personal matter. A friend appears and seems to bring good luck with him or her. Listen and value this persons suggestions and ideas. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) One-on-one relating points to a better image in public and within your immediate circle. You tend to sit on some strong feelings, as you might not be conscious of their source. Refuse to close down. Allow yourself to open up more. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Defer to someone you care about but with whom you often disagree. The two of you have similar issues, but how you deal with them differs greatly. A friend could be difcult. Give this person the space he or she needs to learn and grow. Cancer patient discusses too much detail in public | Tuesday, June 19, 2018 B5 TODAY IS TUESDAY, JUNE 19, the 170th day of 2018. There are 195 days left in the year. TODAY'S HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY: On June 19, 1953, Julius Rosenberg, 35, and his wife, Ethel, 37, convicted of conspiring to pass U.S. atomic secrets to the Soviet Union, were executed at Sing Sing Prison in Ossining, New York. ON THIS DATE: In 1775 George Washington was commissioned by the Continental Congress as commander in chief of the Continental Army. In 1938, four dozen people were killed when a railroad bridge in Montana collapsed, sending a train known as the Olympian hurtling into Custer Creek. In 1944, during World War II, the two-day Battle of the Philippine Sea began, resulting in a decisive victory for the Americans over the Japanese.
