A day earlier, the Pentagon said it was drawing up plans to house as many as 20,000 migrants on U.S. military bases.Beyond that, however, there was nothing but frustration and worry for many of the parents separated from their children and placed in detention centers for illegally entering the coun-try over the past several weeks.Some parents struggled to get in touch with youngsters being held in many cases hun-dreds of miles away, in places like New York and the Chicago area. Some said they didnt even know where their chil-dren were.Trump himself took a hard line on the crisis, accusing the Democrats of telling phony stories of sadness and grief.ŽWe cannot allow our coun-try to be overrun by illegal immigrants,Ž the president tweeted.More than 2,300 children were taken from their families at the border in recent weeks. A senior Trump administration official said that about 500 of them have been reunited since May.Trumps decision to stop separating families, announced Wednesday after a fierce international outcry, has led to confusion and uncertainty along the border.Federal agencies are working to set up a centralized reunifi-cation process for all remaining children at a detention center in Texas, said the senior administration official, who was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on con-dition of anonymity.

The information has become an important tool in criminal investigations. Chief Justice John Roberts, joined by the courts four liberals, said cellphone loca-tion information is detailed, encyclopedic and effortlessly compiled.Ž Roberts wrote that an individual maintains a legitimate expectation of privacy in the record of his physical movementsŽ as they are captured by cellphone towers.Roberts said the courts decision is limited to cellphone tracking information and does not affect other busi-ness records, including those held by banks. He also wrote that police still can respond to an emergency and obtain records without a warrant.But the dissenting conservative justices, Anthony Kennedy, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch, cast doubt on Rob-erts claim that the decision was limited. Each wrote a dis-senting opinion and Kennedy said in his that the courts new and uncharted course will inhibit law enforcementŽ and keep defendants and judges guessing for years to come.Ž Roberts does not often line up with his liberal colleagues against a unified front of conservative justices, but digital-age privacy cases can cross ideological lines, as when the court unanimously said in 2014 that a warrant is needed before police can search the cellphone of some-one theyve just arrested.The court ruled Friday in the case of Timothy Carpen-ter, who was sentenced to 116 years in prison for his role in a string of robberies of Radio Shack and T-Mobile stores in Michigan and Ohio. Cell tower records spanning 127 days, which investigators got without a warrant, bolstered the case against Carpenter.Investigators obtained the records with a court order that requires a lower standard than the probable causeŽ needed for a warrant. Prob-able causeŽ requires strong evidence that a person has committed a crime.The judge at Carpenters trial refused to suppress the records, finding no warrant was needed, and a federal appeals court agreed. The Trump administration said the lower court decisions should be upheld.The American Civil Liberties Union, representing Carpenter, said a warrant would provide protection against unjustified govern-ment snooping.This is a groundbreaking victory for Americans pri-vacy rights in the digital age. The Supreme Court has given privacy law an update that it has badly needed for many years, finally bringing it in line with the realities of modern life,Ž said ACLU attorney Nathan Freed Wessler, who argued the Supreme Court case in November.The administration relied in part on a 1979 Supreme Court decision that treated phone records differently than the conversation in a phone call, for which a warrant generally is required.The earlier case involved a single home telephone and the court said then that people had no expectation of privacy in the records of calls made and kept by the phone company.The governments position fails to contend with the seismic shifts in digital technology that made pos-sible the tracking of not only Carpenters location but also everyone elses, not for a short period but for years and years,Ž Roberts wrote.The court decided the 1979 case before the digital age, and even the law on which prosecutors relied to obtain an order for Carpenters records dates from 1986, when few people had cellphones.The Supreme Court in recent years has acknowl-edged technologys effects on privacy. In 2014, Roberts also wrote the opinion that police must generally get a warrant to search the cellphones of people they arrest. Other items people carry with them may be looked at without a warrant, after an arrest.Roberts said then that a cellphone is almost a feature of human anatomy.Ž On Friday, he returned to the metaphor to note that a phone faithfully follows its owner beyond public thoroughfares and into private residences, doctors offices, political headquarters, and other potentially revealing locales.ŽAs a result, he said, when the government tracks the location of a cell phone it achieves near perfect surveil-lance, as if it had attached an ankle monitor to the phones user.ŽEven with the courts ruling in Carpenters favor, its too soon to know whether he will benefit from Fridays decision, said Harold Gurewitz, Carpenters lawyer in Detroit. The Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will have to evaluate whether the cellphone tracking records can still be used against Car-penter under the good faithŽ exception for law enforcement „ evidence should not necessarily be thrown out if authorities obtained it in a way they thought the law required. There also is other evidence implicating Carpen-ter that might be sufficient to sustain his conviction.Justices adopt new cellphone tracking rulesIn this 2017 photo, the Supreme Court in Washington is seen at sunset. The Supreme Court says police generally need a search warrant if they want to track a suspects movements by collecting information about where theyve used their cellphones. [J.

It is not uncommon to see them throughout the state, with most interactions at a distance.The FWC urges people to keep their distance if they see a gator and to never feed alliga-tors because it is dangerous and illegal. They also urge caution in bodies of water.Although alligator bite incidents resulting in serious injury are rare in Florida, the FWC recommends taking precautions when having fun in and around the water. Alli-gators inhabit all 67 counties in Florida and can be found any-where there is standing water,Ž the agency stated in the news release.Reduce the chances of conflicts with alligators by swimming only in designated swimming areas during day-light hours. Also, keep pets on a leash and away from the water,Ž the release noted.Anyone who has a concern about a specific alligator can call the toll-free Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR (392-4286).The FWC places the high-est priority on public safety,Ž said Eric Sutton, FWCs exec-utive director, in the news release. When someone calls our Nuisance Alligator Hot-line to report an alligator they believe poses a threat, we dispatch one of our contracted nuisance alligator trappers to resolve the situation.ŽTo learn more about alligators, visit issues alert about active alli gatorsAnyone who has a concern about a speci“ c alligator can call the toll-free Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR (392-4286). [GATEHOUSE MEDIA FILE] By Frank Stanfieldfrankstanfield@dailycommercial.comLEESBURG „ Detectives are still trying to fit all the pieces together in Wednesdays early morning home invasion that led to a shootout and a suspect being shot in the ankle by a sheriffs deputy. Two men have been arrested. Investi-gators are questioning the man who set the events in motion when he called Tavares police to say that he had been abducted and taken to a house on Mel-rose Avenue in the Bassville Park area of Leesburg.Jeffrey R. Geiger told depu-ties he was taken from his Palm Gardens neighborhood about 1 a.m. He said he was outside of his trailer preparing to go fishing when he was nabbed.It might be true. It might be fishy. Geiger, 29, has a long list of past charges from Lake and Marion counties, including two charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, battery, domestic battery, drugs and criminal mischief. It is not clear from jail records how many cases, if any, resulted in convictions.When deputies got to the Leesburg home, they were confronted by two men, one of whom opened fire with what appeared to be an assault rifle. They returned fire, wounding the shooter.The five robbery victims inside the Leesburg home told detectives they were terrorized by the two men, who pulled guns and threatened to kill them.They said the pair first accosted a woman in a car in the driveway, pointed gunsat her head and told her to be quiet.Kailon M. Harris-Caldwell, 20, of Eustis, took her to the front door, pushed her inside and rushed in demanding that everyone get on the floor. Wit-nesses said he asked for some guyŽ and demanded money before going into a bedroom to look for loot. He was armed with two pistols. One of the victims describedthe pairas unorganizedŽ and all over the placeŽ while looking for jewelry,phones or anything else they could steal.Third man questioned in home invasion He earlier said he had been abducted by the pair charged in Wednesdays attackBy Linda CharltonCorrespondentGROVELAND … ExGroveland mayor George Rosario, who was kicked out of office because of a 30-year-old drug conviction more than a year ago, is running for office again, only this time he's not running to be mayor.On Friday, Rosario quali-fied to run for Council Seat 3 against Dina Sweatt. Sweatt was elected in 2016, the same time that Rosario was elected mayor and ascended to mayor when the City Council ousted Rosario. Tim Loucks, who himself is a former mayor of Groveland, won Sweatt's Seat 3 soon after she vacated it to became mayor. Loucks qualified to run for Seat 3 but withdrew his candidacy on Friday.The council booted Rosario in December 2016 over a felony drug conviction in Pennsylvania. The Florida Constitution says that convicted felons cannot hold public office unless their civil rights have been restored. In Florida that means a pardon.Rosario's right to vote in Pennsylvania was restored automatically when he completed his sentence, but even there, his right to hold public office would require a pardon. Rosario apparently doesn't have one. That may change, however. The Pennsylvania Board of Pardons has a pending application from Rosario for a pardon, although it will not release the document publicly, so it isn't clear whether a decision on Rosa-rio's application will be made prior to the November election. If he wins in November but still does not have a pardon, he faces the same legal challenge he faced during his tenure as mayor. Concerning Rosario qualifying to run for office, Groveland City Attorney Anita Geraci-Carver said, "The City is unable to comment due to the pending litigation filed by Mr. Rosario; however, the City Clerk performs a ministerial function in reviewing quali-fying papers. The City Clerk reviews to ensure all required items have been filed and are complete on its face. The City Clerk may not determine whether the contents of the qualifying papers are Quali ed to run?George Rosario, shown here presiding over a G roveland City Council meeting in 2016, “ led papers to run for a seat on the council on Friday [DAILY COMMERCIAL FILE] Ousted Groveland mayor Rosario les to run for City Council, but its unclear if he can hold o ceBy Roxanne Brownroxanne.brown @dailycommercial.comTAVARES … Qualifying for local municipal offices closed Friday with some new faces, and some political veterans, throwing their hats in the ring.In a move that was pecu-liar but not particularly surprising, ousted Grove-land mayor George Rosario filed to run for a seat on the City Council even though the council removed him more than a year ago over questions about whether a 30-year-old drug conviction disqualified him from holding public office.Here is a look at qualifying around Lake County: CLERMONTCouncilman Tim Bates, who currently holds seat 1, will retain his position since he is running unopposed. Incumbent Diane Travis, who holds Seat 5, will be opposed by Ebo Entsuah.For Seat 3, the mayoral seat, a three-way race has shaped up. Incumbent Mayor Gail Ash, who filed her paperwork by the Friday deadline, will be challenged by Keith E. Mullins and Jack Kruse. Because of the 3-way race, Clermonts charter calls for a primary election, which will take place on Aug. 28. In the event one of the candidates in the primary election receives more than 50 percent of the votes cast, that candidate will be declared elected and the seat will not be on the ballot for the general elec-tion. However, in the event no candidate receives more than 50 percent, the two top vote-getters move on to the Nov. 6 general election. GROVELANDDistricts 1, the mayoral seat, 3 and Seat 5 are up for re-election. Running for mayor are Matthew Baumann, James Smith, Chris Walker and Evelyn Wilson. There is no primary elec-tion in Groveland, so all four Candidates qualify in 5 Lake cities TAVARESCops, police dog chase wanted man into Tavares pondA man who fled through wetlands behind Florida Hospital-Waterman to get away from police Friday was eventually nabbed after trying to drown a police dog. Austin J. Winters, 22, of Pal-atka, was charged with resisting with violence, battery on a law enforcement officer, loitering and prowling and offense against a police dog. Police were called to the hospital at 5:36 a.m., by an employee who told a 911 dispatcher there was a young man just wandering through the parking lot and I dont know what hes up to.Ž She said he approached her car, but she backed out and went to another area. Tavares officers caught up with him in a rear parking lot and discovered that he had recently been discharged from the emergency room and was just hanging around. He provided a couple of telephone numbers of relatives that he said could verify his identity. An aunt and his grandmother, however, told police that the person they were talking to was Austin Winters and that Putnam County authorities had a war-rant out for his arrest. At this time, Winters was sitting on a curb. When the policeman told him to get up, Winters shoved him and took off running toward a pond.A sheriffs police dog joined the chase and Winters report-edly grabbed the K-9s harness in an attempt to it, the report said. When the dogs han-dler tried to retrieve the dog, Winters struck the deputy, the report said.Winters was wanted on charges of aggravated assault, manufacturing meth-amphetamine, failure to appear and possession of illegal chemicals.

A4 Saturday, June 23, 2018 | TodaysServices By KIllel ItalieAP National WriterNEW YORK „ Charles Krauthammer, the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and pundit who helped shape and occasionally dissented from the conservative movement as he evolved from Great SocietyŽ Democrat to Iraq War cheerleader to denouncer of Donald Trump, has died at age 68. His death was announced Thursday by two longtime employers, Fox News Channel and The Washington Post. Krauthammer had said publicly a year ago he was being treated for a cancerous tumor in his abdomen and earlier this month revealed that he likely had just weeks to live. I leave this life with no regrets,Ž Krauthammer wrote in The Washington Post, where his column had run since 1984. It was a wonderful life „ full and complete with the great loves and great endeavors that make it worth living. I am sad to leave, but I leave with the knowledge that I lived the life that I intended.Ž Sometimes scornful, sometimes reflective, he was awarded a Pulitzer in 1987 for his witty and insightfulŽ commentary and was an influential voice among Republicans, whether through his syndicated column or his appearances on Fox News Channel. He was most associated with Brit Humes nightly newscast and stayed with it when Bret Baier took over in 2009. Krauthammer is cred-ited with coining the term The Reagan DoctrineŽ for President Reagans policy of aiding anti-Communist move-ments worldwide. He was a leading advocate for the Iraq War and a prominent critic of President Barack Obama, whom he praised for his first-class intellect and first-class tempera-mentŽ and denounced for having a highly suspectŽ character. Krauthammer was a former Harvard medical student who graduated even after he was para-lyzed from the neck down because of a diving board accident, continuing his studies from his hospital bed. He was a Democrat in his youth and his polit-ical engagement dated back to 1976, when he handed out leaflets for Henry Jacksons unsuccessful presidential campaign. But through the 1980s and beyond, Krauthammer followed a journey akin to such neo-conservative predecessors as Irving Kristol and Norman Podhoretz, turning against his old party on foreign and domestic issues. He aligned with Republi-cans on everything from confrontation with the Soviet Union to rejection of the Great SocietyŽ programs enacted during the 1960s. As I became convinced of the practical and theoretical defects of the social-democratic tendencies of my youth, it was but a short distance to a philosophy of restrained, free-market governance that gave more space and place to the individual and to the civil society that stands between citizen and state,Ž he wrote in the introduction to Things That Matter,Ž a million-selling compilation of his writings published in 2013. As of midday Friday, the hard-cover edition of Things That MatterŽ Was No. 1 on The paperback was No. 2. For the Post, Time magazine, The New Republic and other pub-lications, Krauthammer wrote on a wide range of subjects, and in Things That MatterŽ listed chess, baseball, the innocence of dogsŽ and the cunning of catsŽ among his passions. As a psychiatrist in the 1970s, he did groundbreaking research on bipolar disorder. He was attacked for his politics, and for his predictions. He was so confident of quick success in Iraq he initially labeled the 2003 invasion The Three Week WarŽ and defended the conflict for years. He also backed the George W. Bush administrations use of torture as an uncontrolled experimentŽ carried out sometimes clumsily, sometimes cru-elly, indeed, sometimes wrongly. But success-fully. It kept us safe.Ž Krauthammer was sure that Obama would lose in 2008 because of lingering fears from the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, and foresaw Mitt Romney defeating him in 2012. But he prided himself on his rejection of orthodoxy and took on Republicans, too, observ-ing during a Fox special in 2013 that If youre going to leave the medical pro-fession because you think you have something to say, you betray your whole life if you dont say what you think and if you dont say it honestly and bluntly.ŽHe did, differing with such Fox commentators as Bill OReilly and Laura Ingraham as he found himself among the increasingly isolated Never Trumpers,Ž Republicans regarding the real estate baron and former ApprenticeŽ star as a vulgarian unfit for the presidency. I used to think Trump was an 11-year-old, an undeveloped schoolyard bully,Ž he wrote in August 2016, around the time Trump officially became the Republican nominee. I was off by about 10 years. His needs are more primitive, an infantile hunger for approval and praise, a craving that can never be satisfied. He lives in a cocoon of solipsism where the world outside himself has value „ indeed exists „ only insofar as it sustains and inflates him.Ž Trump, of course, tweeted about Kraut-hammer, who pretends to be a smart guy, but if you look at his record, he isnt.

Dina Sweatt, the current mayor, appointed after the suspension of George Rosario, is not running for the top spot.The District 3 council seat, however, will feature a two-way race between Sweatt and Rosario, and District 5 will see Eunice Garbutt and Jeff Shoobridge on the ballot. FRUITLAND PARKThe District 1 and 2 commission seats are up for grabs. District 1, whose Incumbent Rick Ranize is not seeking re-election, will be taken over by Pat-rick Alan DeGrave, who is running unopposed. District 2 will feature a race between John Mobilian, Fred Collins and August Kellerman. Commissioner Ray Lewis, who currently holds the District 2 seat, did not file to run. MOUNT DORAThere is one at-large seat, along with the Dis-trict 2 and 3 seats up for re-election. Kathy Hoechst, the current at-large council member whose term is up, will not seek re-elec-tion, so a three-way race between Katherine Ann Bellamy, Cristine Stile, and Donnie G. Stroud, III will ensue. According to city offi-cials, Mount Dora also does not participate in primaries. Cal Rolfson, who holds the Distrct 2 seat and John Tucker, who occu-pies the District 3 seat, will both retain their positions as they are run-ning unopposed. UMATILLA Seats 4 and 5 are up for re-election. For Seat 5, Councilwoman Katherine Adams will retain her seat since she is running unopposed. Seat 4 will see a race between Kent Adcock and John Whipple. QUALIFYINGFrom Page A3accurate."Meanwhile, Rosario has filed a lawsuit against the city challenging the coun-cil's authority to remove him from office and asking that he be reinstated.Rosario's attorneys argue that the statute cov-ering qualifying for office does not directly deal with issue of felon rights. It basically asked if the can-didate is a qualified elector (Rosario is) and whether he or she meet the residency requirements (Rosario does). There are a total of three seats up for grabs this year in Groveland. In addition to Seat 3, there is Seat 1 (mayor's seat) and Seat 5, currently held by longtime council member John Grif-fin.

ROSARIOFrom Page A3By Kim Tong-HyungThe Associated PressSEOUL, South Korea „ North and South Korea agreed Friday to hold tem-porary reunions of families divided by the 1950-53 Korean War as they boost reconciliation efforts amid a diplomatic push to resolve the North Korean nuclear crisis.The reunions will take place at North Koreas Diamond Mountain resort from Aug. 20 to 26, Seouls Unification Ministry said after a nine-hour meeting between Red Cross offi-cials from the two sides.It said the countries will each send 100 participants to the reunions. People with mobility problems will be allowed to bring a relative to help them.Such temporary reunions are highly emotional as most wishing to take part are elderly people who are eager to see their loved ones before they die. The families were driven apart during the turmoil of the war.North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in agreed during a summit in April to hold the family reunions about Aug. 15, the anniversary of the Korean Peninsulas independence from Japa-nese colonial rule at the end of World War II in 1945.Fridays talks between Red Cross officials at the Diamond Mountain resort were to arrange details of the reunions.Kim and Moon met again in May. Their two summits have opened various channels of peace talks between the countries. The rivals recently agreed to restore crossborder military hotline communication channels and field joint teams in some events at the upcoming Asian Games in Indonesia.If we sternly separate ourselves from the unfor-tunate past and acquire a strong mindset for the new times, humanitarian cooperation between the North and South will flourish,Ž North Korea delegate Pak Yong Il said at the start of the meeting. Park Kyung-seo, presi-dent of South Koreas Red Cross, expressed hope for talks that could resolve the grief of our nation.ŽThe Koreas last held family reunions in 2015 before relations worsened because of North Koreas accelerated pursuit of nuclear long-range missiles and the hard-line response of Seouls then-conser-vative government.Since the end of the Korean War, both Koreas have banned ordinary citizens from visiting rel-atives on the other side of the border or contacting them without permission. Nearly 20,000 Koreans have participated in 20 rounds of face-to-face temporary reunions held between the countries since 2000.Aside from setting up a new round of reunions, South Korean officials also proposed a survey to con-firm surviving members of war-separated families in North Korea and the possibility of hometown visits, but couldnt reach an agreement with North Korean officials, Park told reporters after the meeting.The limited numbers of reunions are vastly insufficient to meet the demands of aging relatives, who are mostly in their 80s and 90s, South Korean officials say. According to Seouls Unification Ministry, more than 75,000 of the 132,000 South Koreans who have applied to attend a reunion have died. None of the past participants has had a second reunion.South Korea uses a computerized lottery to pick participants for the reunions, while North Korea is believed to choose based on loyalty to its authoritarian leadership. South Korean analysts say North Korea allows only infrequent reunions for fear of wasting what it sees as an important dip-lomatic bargaining chip. North Korea may also worry that its citizens will become influenced by the much more affluent South, which could loosen the governments grip on power.There had been expectations that Fridays meeting could get contentious if North Korean officials reiterated the countrys demand for the return of 12 North Korean restau-rant workers in return for allowing reunions.Seoul has said the 12 women, who had worked in a restaurant in China, had defected and willingly settled in South Korea in 2016 but is now reviewing the circumstances following a media report suggesting at least some were brought against their will.Koreas agree to reunions of families split by warIn this photo provided by South Korea Uni“ cation Ministry, South Korean Red Cross President Park Kyungseo, second from left, shakes hands with his North Korean counterpart Pak Yong Il during a meeting Friday at Diamond Mountain resort in North Korea.

PAGE 5 | Saturday, June 23, 2018 A5at EPIC on Thursday with son Price for an evening showing of Incredibles 2. Juan Moreno and Chinelle Tarcetecan from Leesburg, also there for Incredibles 2, said they do not frequent any theater without the reserved seating, but also enjoy the reclining seats. Thats a big thing for us. We try to choose theaters where we can make reservations and that have reclining chairs for total comfort,Ž Moreno said. We were always going to the downtown Disney theater for that, but now we have one a little closer.Ž Horne said there are plenty of other cool features, starting with a state-of-the-art bar.Horne said the bar is not only equipped with a dispenser that can automatically pour a variety of popular mixed drinks at the touch of a button, but with 16 beer taps featuring local brews. Our bar has been very popular since we opened,Ž Horne said. There are also 14 kiosks that people can use to retrieve tickets they pre-ordered, a sitting area with multiple television screens to keep people entertained as they wait for movies to start and vari-ous self-serve stations for concocting milk-shakes or Icees, pizza, popcorn, ice cream, fountain drinks and more. Its a really nice place to come to,Ž Horne said. Horne said their biggest selling point, however, besides the electric reclin-ing leather chairs and reserved seating, are two 300-seat auditoriums that feature 70-plus-foot curved screens that some people know as IMAX screenswith laser projectors and a 16-channel sound system. Horne said many theaters have more standard sound made up of either 5.1 or 7.1 channel systems, so the one at EPIC is con-siderably richer. He said the combination of the two features helps bring movies to life.Movie-goers are fully engrossed,Ž he said. Billy Pham and Chi Nguyen, who live in Mount Dora,said they had been waiting for EPIC to cut down on their long drive to Apopka, Altamonte Springs or Winter Park for movie nights to enjoy spe-cialty concessions, luxury seating, scope-format screens and the rest of the bells and whistles.We are very excited because this theater is so close to our house. We drive 5-10 minutes and were here,Ž Nguyen said. We also like that you dont have to wait in line as long to get your tickets. You come in here and its simple; just 1-2-3 and you get your tickets out of the machine.Ž EPICFrom Page A1during the attempted rob-bery. Mays and Splunge fled in a black Honda with the third man, Larry D. Burrows, 23.Burrows and Splunge are from Orlando, and Mays is from Leesburg.A week later, Orlando police spotted the car and noticed it had a stolen license plate. They gave chase, and the six passen-gers bailed out and ran. Police were able to track down some of the people from the car and also found a .45-caliber handgun that they believe was used to kill Behney.Investigators from Fruitland Park, the Lake County Sheriffs Office and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement closed the case Thursday when they arrested the trio. All were charged with murder and attempted robbery.So many violent crimes are not random. Often, the killer and the victim know each other.But one of the Fruitland Park investigators who worked the case said he isnt surprised by the ran-domness and brutality of Behneys murder.Capt. Erik Luce said the three were on a missionŽ to steal, and Behney, who was alone in a garage just feet from the road, was in clear view as they passed by and presented a good target.(The garage) is right on the road with the open bay door and the light on,Ž Luce said. You can see right inside if someones working. Of the suspects, he said, You have to understand the world they come from. They dont have any regard for life. They are on a mission, and if you get in their way theyre going to make you pay.ŽBehney, 58, lived in Pennsylvania but traveled a lot to sell motorcycle parts at swap meets. He had been planning to attend Bikefest later in April and was staying in a trailer in Fruitland Park. The owner of the garage where he was killed was letting him use it to repair his truck.Luce noted that two of the suspects are from Orlando and said police theorize that they are part of the parade of car thieves who travel to Lake County from Orlando to steal cars and cause trouble. Its a problem that has been plaguing law enforcement for some time.They steal from auto dealerships, and theyll go down the road smashing out windows and taking whatever they want,Ž he said.It isnt clear why the men allegedly killed Behney or whether he resisted. Florida Department of Law Enforcement spokes-woman Angela Starke said that may come out later. Luce, of the Fruitland Park police, said they have some indicationsŽ about what happened but are not divulging those details at this point.He said Burrows has a recent drug arrest in Flor-ida and also has a violent history in the Bahamas, although he did not provide details. SHOOTINGFrom Page A1as a result of a conspir-acy on the part of elected officials in Lake County in 1957. Daniels, a Day-tona Beach resident, died on Thursday at the age of 79. * *Jesse Daniels, 79, passed away peacefully at Seaside Health and Rehabilitation Center in Daytona Beach on Thursday.He was born in Lees-burg,on Sept.25, 1938, to Pearl and Charles Dan-iels. As a child, Jesse was diagnosed with a mental disability and was unable to attend school beyond the fifth grade.In 1957, at the age of 19, Jesse was falsely accused of raping a 31-year-old housewife in Okahumpka and, without a trial, he was committed to the Florida State Hospital in Chattahoochee, where he would spend the next 14 years of his life.His case caught the attention of Mabel Norris Reese, a journalist for the Mount Dora Topic, a weekly newspaper in Lake County, and later for The Daytona Beach News-Journal. Reese advocated tirelessly on Jesses behalf, writing stories and columns about his case, as well as letters to politicians and the FBI, requesting an investigation.She eventually enlisted the help of a young Day-tona Beach attorney, Richard Graham, who took Jesses case pro bono at Landis Graham French, and he filed appeals with the 2nd Dis-trict Court, as well as the United States Supreme Court.In December 1971, Jesse was released from Chattahoochee and the rape charge against him was dropped. In 1974, the Florida Legislature voted to compensate Jesse $75,000 for lost earnings, mental anguish and other injuries he suf-fered while wrongfully imprisoned for 14 years at Chattahoochee. Upon his release, Jesse worked as a cooks helper at the Princess Issena Hotel in Daytona Beach, where his mother, Pearl, worked as a maid. He was fond of singing antique countryŽ music songs and playing his guitar, and for years, he could often be seen riding his bicycle around Daytona Beach where he worked odd jobs.In 1998, Jesse came into the care of Reverend David Troxler, minister of the First Christian Church in Daytona Beach, who managed Jesses affairs and living arrangements. Jesse was an active participant in church activities until his health began to fail. He spent his last three years of his life at Seaside Health and Rehabilita-tion Center.In a 2014 interview with Gilbert King, Jesse told the author that he did not dwell much on his past, and the injustice he suffered. Ive had a pretty good life ƒ so far,Ž Jesse said.He was predeceased by his father, Charles, in 1963, and his mother, Pearl, in 1976, and he will be laid to rest alongside them at Center Hill Cem-etery in Sumter County. No immediate family members survive.A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m.July 8 at First Christian Church, 326 S. Palmetto Ave, Daytona Beach.In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the First Chris-tian Church in honor of Jesse Daniels. DANIELSFrom Page A1In the meantime, federal authorities appear to be easing up on the Trump administrations zero toleranceŽ policy of prosecuting all adults caught illegally entering the U.S. „ though the Justice Department flatly denied there has been any change.The federal public defenders office for the region that covers El Paso to San Antonio said in an email made public Thurs-day that prosecutors will no longer charge parents with illegally entering the U.S. if they have children with them.Outside the federal courthouse in McAllen, immigration attorney Efren Olivares said 67 people were charged Friday morning with illegal entry, but none were parents with children. He said it was the first time since May 24 that that happened in McAllen.It appears that this is a consequence of a change in policy by the govern-ment,Ž he said.ICE has only three facil-ities nationwide „ two in Texas, one in Pennsylvania „ that can be used to detain immigrant families, and they have a combined 3,300 beds.The one in Dilley, Texas, opened in 2015 on a remote site that was once an encampment for oil workers. It contains collections of cottages built around playgrounds and common areas, but also has high security.Finding space is not the only hurdle: Under a 1997 court settlement that the Trump administration is trying to overturn, chil-dren can be held with their parents in detention cen-ters for no more than 20 days.

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 A judges ruling June 16 has Floridas environmental community cautiously elated and state legislators fuming. Good. In 2014, Floridas voters passed Amendment 1, which constitutionally set aside an annually fixed percentage of real estate documentary stamps in order to fund conservation in the state „ land acquisition in particular. Floridas voters recognized the need for the amendment as they saw more and more of their tax dollars paying to denude the state of its rich environment, rather than protecting it. This was their way to even the playing field. So, 75 percent voted to create a continuing fund to keep for saleŽ signs off of critical conservation lands. It did not take long for the Legislature to subvert the intent and bleed off millions of dollars for salaries, vehicles and infrastructure for the wildlife and conservation agencies, previously and correctly bankrolled by general fund revenue. House Speaker Richard Corcoran called the ruling a clear abuse of judicial authority.Ž We heard the same criticism when the state Supreme Court overturned his gerrymandering schemes three times, eventually taking the task away from lawmakers and doing the job itself. There is little doubt that the Legislature will appeal the decision. After all, it doesnt cost it a penny „ it costs us. Attorney Andy Bardos, who represents the House and Senate, told Sunshine State News that the courts decision should be based on the written text of the amendment, and not the perceived intent of the voters. He called the 75 percent plurality pure speculation.Ž Geez. Circuit Judge Charles Dodson, who issued the ruling, explained that he read the amendment over 100 times and considered the Supreme Courts ruling, approving the title and ballot summary. Here it is: Funds the Land Acquisition Trust Fund to acquire, restore, improve, and manage conservation lands including wetlands and forests; fish and wildlife habitat; lands protecting water resources and drinking water sources, including the Everglades, and the water quality of rivers, lakes, and streams; beaches and shores; outdoor recreational lands; working farms and ranches; and historic or geologic sites, by dedicating 33 percent of net revenues from the existing excise tax on documents for 20 years.Ž What part seems speculative to you? The Legislature may have more reason to fight this ruling than conservation dollars. The voters also OKd the Sadowski Act in 1992. It added 10 cents to the real estate doc stamps, expressly to fund affordable housing initiatives. It, too, was more temptation than lawmakers could bear. But, in sweepingŽ affordable housing dollars into the general fund, they didnt even make a pretense of using the dollars for the intended purpose. They just looted the pot. Since 2009, of the $2.3 billion raised by the amendment, $833 million has actually gone to affordable housing efforts statewide. Then theres the Lottery, which was meant to enhance education for our kids, but now only replaces the dollars the state cut from education funding. Might the recent conservation ruling embolden affordable housing advocates to bring a similar challenge on the Sadowski dollars? We can only hope „ and maybe speculateŽ a little harder.OUR OPINIONOur looting Legislature ANOTHER OPINION The greater moral wrong with the GOP Perhaps the right-wing evangelical voters could be convinced there is a greater moral wrong than issues that have to do with homosexuality and abortion. The greater moral wrong is killing someones 18-year-old kid in a war that did not need to be fought. The greater moral wrong comes from adding trillions of dollars to the national debt to fight elective wars. The greater moral wrong is to support the Republican party when the party supports the elimination of American jobs and the recreation of those jobs in third world countries. The greater moral wrong is in voting for Republicans, thereby making the U.S. a nation where the top one percent makes more money and controls more wealth than the rest of the population. The greater moral wrong is in voting for politicians who help to ensure that we spend more on health care than any other developed country, while getting the poorest health outcomes in the developed world. The greater moral wrong comes from taking food out of the mouths of malnourished Americans. The greater moral wrong comes from taking the U.S. down the path that leads to the wages and living conditions of the third world. How will you cast your vote come the next general election? I pray not against your own health and welfare.Michael Harris, WebsterMove forward with civility When reading the column written by Mr. Andrews, I find that, instead of pointing out solutions for a problem, he again goes into a rambling diatribe against the governor. I am truly sorry for the loss of his spouse and hope that in the future he uses his skills to help the citizens of our state. He writes that Medicaid bills of $7,500 a month were reduced to $550 a month, and without the Medicaid coverage he would have been bankrupt. He should thank the Lord for that coverage. If the divisive tactics were dropped by both sides, and decent and reasonable opinions were debated in a civil manner, we would all be better served.Dave Hocevar, Yalaha The hypocrisy of Republican handouts Republicans say self reliance is their core principle, but look at the free handouts our current president and the Congressional Republicans gave to the 1 percent rich and corporations with that terrible tax plan that they passed. Republicans balk at welfare, free school lunches and helping the poor, but look at their hypocrisy, when our current president and Congressional Republicans give free handouts to the rich and corporations but balk at helping common, everyday people.Linda Green, LeesburgThe “ scal crisis warning The fiscal crisis is here. Procrastination has lasted long enough. There is no turning back. Everything has been whats in it for meŽ for too long. This country is headed for bankruptcy and its inevitable results. The latest crisis happened in Nicaragua. I learned of this two weeks ago in a one-time, back-page news article in the Daily Commercial. The editorial, Clear warning signs of a fiscal crisisŽ should be required reading for every adult.Howard Vesser, Lady LakeLETTERS TO THE EDITORRight now, in Washington and in states across the country, there is a battle over the future of America. Democrats are scrambling to find a path to victory in 2018. Americans are looking to Democrats to stand up against the petulant, racist and phony populist rhetoric and policy coming from the White House and President Donald Trump's enablers in Congress. But we are also looking for leaders with a set of visionary policies that reflect the values of working families. It's not enough to just say "no." This is the time to go all-in on racial, gender and environmental justice. It's the time to renew our commitment to democracy. If Democrats don't stand for something, if they don't deliver a positive message that resonates with working people in this country, then they will continue to lose. Communications Workers of America (CWA) members come from all over the country and across the political spectrum. They are the voters who Democrats must win over in 2018 and beyond. And they agree across party lines about the priorities for this nation: higher wages, an end to the offshoring of American jobs, protection of the right to join together to create better workplaces. These priorities provide a clear road map for Democrats in 2018. They form the heart of an economic justice program that will demonstrate to working people of all races and genders that Democrats put them first and have the answers to the problems they face. First, Democrats need to lead the fight to raise wages. Permanently. When Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan promised every household a minimum $4,000 trickle-down wage increase if Congress passed the corporate tax cut bill, workers instead got a one-time bonus. Others got a layoff notice. A small, one-time bonus just won't cut it. We need permanent and real wage increases that actually land in the pockets of workers and create sustainable growth for our economy. Next, let's talk about jobs. Trade is a complicated issue. But what is not complicated is that millions of Americans clearly feel that the trade agreements of the last few decades … several of them championed by Democratic presidents … have caused the loss of millions of good American jobs. We all know that Donald Trump tapped into those feelings in 2016. Here's the problem: Donald Trump is not fighting to bring good jobs back to America. This is a fight that Democrats must lead. Two years ago, 40,000 Verizon workers went on strike for 49 days in order to bring call center jobs back from overseas. They won their strike … and their new contract included guarantees for call center work to stay and grow here, and for the hiring of over 1,000 new call center workers. Working families know how to fight and win. We need Democrats to join that fight and stand up for protecting good American jobs. Finally, let's talk about unions and workers' rights. At the heart of the progressive movement … at the heart of any living, breathing democracy … is the freedom of working people to join together in unions. Working people increasingly understand that union membership and power in the workplace are critical in this economy. We see it in the young people who are fighting for workers' rights and unions. We see it as teachers demand change in red states after years of failed Republican austerity programs have decimated schools and other public services across our country. Union members … including those who voted for Trump … believe that the ability to stand together for change is critical. They understand that only unions give them a fighting chance for their fair share of the economic pie. Democrats must point to what Republicans have done over the last year to roll back workplace protections and make it even more difficult for working people to join together. They must explain what their plan is to not only stop these rollbacks but to increase workers' power. If Democrats do that, working people will listen. Working people will show up for candidates that support higher wages, jobs, and power in our workplaces. And together we will take back America. Chris Shelton is president of the Communications Workers of America.ANOTHER OPINIONA roadmap for Democrats in 2018 and beyond OPINIONSteve Skaggs | Publisher Tom McNiff | Executive Editor Whitney Lehnecker | Digital Editor, Lifestyles Editor Tom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250

He was a Navy brat who traveled a bit before settling in Lake County his senior year of high school. But since meeting at the Officers Club at Fort Meade, Maryland, in 1984, Joe and Betsy Boyd have been inseparable „ a royal union of the Navy-Marine team.Within a year of their intro-duction that special Friday night, Marine Capt. William Joseph Boyd was asking Ensign Elizabeth Braun, United States Navy, to marry him. Betsy had just returned from a posting in Iceland. She and Joes first stop together was Galeta Island, Panama, where her new husband commanded a company of Marines and Betsy served as a cryptologic officer.Panamas where we started having babies,Ž Joe quipped, a change in lifestyle that caused Betsy, by now a full lieutenant, to resign her commission in favor of full-time motherhood.Because of the limited med-ical facilities on the island, Betsy was transported by Army Black Hawk helicopter to the Gorgas military hospital the night Kelly, the first of their two daughters, was born in 1987. The ride of a lifetime,Ž remembered Betsy, who was strapped to a gurney in full labor at the time.And the couples eclectic, far-ranging life together was just beginning.I was thinking military even while in high school,Ž said Betsy, whose experience playing French horn in an award-winning band and drum and bugle corps already had her in the comfort zoneŽ where drill and spit-and-pol-ish were concerned. She won an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy and was an alternate to the Air Force Academy. But I wanted the experience of going to a real college,Ž she said, accepting a full Naval ROTC scholarship to her hometown University of Rochester.Joes journey in uniform began a little differently. I was going to enlist in the Army to get back at my (Navy chief) Dad for making me change schools my senior year because of his retirement and our resulting move from Orange Park (near Naval Air Station Jacksonville),Ž he said.But the Marine Corps Platoon Leader Class program, offering OCS summer sessions in two six-week increments sounded like a good deal … so I took it.Ž The experience broke up the routine of his studies at Lake-Sumter Com-munity College and then FSU, and the Corps was a good fit for the sometimes-feisty lad.Yeah, 20 years worth,Ž the 61-year-old said, grinning.The adventures included leadership billets in Hawaii, Camp Lejeune and Quantico (where Joe and Betsy welcomed daughter Shawn into the world). The Signals Intelligence and Electronic Warfare Officer also tackled duties that ran the gamut from foreign relations liaison work to having charge of a special test and evaluation unit which reported directly to the Assistant Commandant of the Marine Corps.The couples post-service life has again afforded them the opportunity to work together. Their technical training and background made them attractive choices for top defense contractors head-quartered in the Washington, D.C., and Charleston, South Carolina, areas; and their strong interest and experience in ministry work most recently landed them positions with Sanford-based Ligonier, founded by the late Military love storyNavy veteran Betsy Boyd and Marine Verteran Joe Boyd met while serving their country and have been together ever since.

[SUBMITTED] By Jennie McKeonGatehouse Media FloridaNAVARRE „ It was a bit-tersweet Wednesday for the family of Mark De Alencar.In a patriotic ceremony that included an Army color guard, Boys Scouts, bagpipes, local officials and drag race car driver Courtney Force, Building Homes For Heroes presented a mort-gage-free home to Marks widow, Natasha De Alencar.The nonprofit has made its name by building and modi-fying more than 140 homes for veterans. But Wednesday morning was the first time the organization donated a home to a Gold Star Family.Mark De Alencar was an Army staff sergeant with 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) who was killed in action in Afghanistan April 8, 2017, leaving behind his wife of 15 years and five children. The De Alencar family had just moved to the area when Mark was deployed. Mark and Natasha were planning to buy a home when he returned. Florida was going to be the last stopŽ for the military family.You have made Mark proud,Ž Natasha told the crowd in front of her new home on Brooke Beach Drive in Navarre. Thats one thing he wanted to do was provide for his family. You made that possible today. We are truly, truly grateful.ŽIn the short time that De Alencar was with 7th Group, he demonstrated that he was special, unique and power-ful,Ž 7th Group Lt. Col. Aaron Bush said at the ceremony.Today we honor a great husband. We honor a great father. We honor a great man and a great Special Forces Green Beret,Ž he added.The four-bedroom home was donated by Chase Bank and is valued at about $300,000, said Jazmine Leon, public relations and marketing manager for Building Homes for Heroes. The home was renovated to make it move-in ready.Natasha and the kids picked out paint colors for the bedrooms. The master bedroom is a deep shade of purple. Octavia Osbourne, 18, one of Mark and Natashas kids, said she claimed the light yellow room upstairs.

PAGE 11 | Saturday, June 23, 2018 B3 FAITHTom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 tom.mcniff@dailycommercial.comHave you ever felt alone, afraid, all by yourself? I think its a feeling many of us experience. But its a feeling we dont need to experience if we are in the Lord. In Psalm 55:22 were told, Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.Ž Neither shaken nor stirred. God gives us ample opportunity throughout his Bible to let us cast our anxieties on Him. The Hebrews writer tells us, Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.Ž How many times is money a focal point in our lives? We just dont seem to have enough of it at times, maybe all the time. But God has said He will never leave us or forsake us. As Moses was about to turn over the leadership of the Jews to Joshua he said in Deuteronomy 31:6-8: Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Then Moses summoned Joshua and said to him in the presence of all Israel, Be strong and courageous, for you must go with this people into the land that the Lord swore to their ancestors to give them, and you must divide it among them as their inheritance. The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.Ž Joshua was all in and said in Joshua 24:15, But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.Ž There was no doubt in Joshuas mind. Did you notice that Moses told Joshua in verse 6 that God would go with him and in Moses told Joshua that God would also go before him? But God has our backs covered as well. In Isaiah 52:12 God told us, But you will not leave in haste or go in flight; for the Lord will go before you, the God of Israel will be your rear guard.Ž God has us covered. We dont need to go in haste or flight. We dont need to make an unorganized retreat or withdrawal. God goes before, with and after us. Isaiah later wrote in Isaiah 58: Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.Ž How cool is that? Our righteousness and light will appear like the dawn and the glory of the Lord once more will be our rear guard. Rick Reed is a columnist for the Daily Commercial. Email him at troubled times, the Lord will be our guard Rick ReedBy Theresa VargasThe Washington PostA spicy scent greets cus-tomers before any salesperson at the Botanica Boricua in Arlington, Virginia. Once youre a few steps inside, there is an immediate aware-ness of eyes„ all around the room. Statues, of all sizes and degrees of life-likeness, stare from shelves, beckoning to be bought.But lately, customers have made another item, a candle, a bestseller.For $10, the candle that bears the name San MiguelŽ promises to provide Latino immigrants with what this country has increasingly stripped away from them and their families: A sense of protection.On it, the archangel St. Michael stands with his white wings extended, a sword in one hand and a foot pressed against the back of a blackwinged angel. It is a picture of good triumphing over evil. And for many Latino Catho-lics„ at a time when the country is separating immigrant children from their parents, limiting who can seek asylum and kicking out immi-grants who have long lived in the United States„ setting that wick aflame provides a desperately needed degree of comfort. It is a reminder that despite the authority Trump wields, there is a higher power.The administration has used a controversial Bible verse to justify the most recent and cruelest chapter of its crackdown against illegal immigration„ a zero-toler-anceŽ policy that calls for the criminal prosecution of adults who cross the border without permission and has resulted in more than 2,000 children, some still in diapers, taken from family members.But you know who else reads the Bible? People who are from the same heavily Catholic Central and South American countries as those children.At the gift shop in St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Falls Church, Virgnia, holy water sits on a counter in front of the cash register. Statues of saints, including several depicting Jesus cradled in Marys arms, occupy shelves on each side of the room. And Bibles, in different sizes, colors and lit-eracy levels, fill a bookshelf. They are one of the stores top sellers.The Hispanic community, theyre big on buying our Bibles,Ž said Lendy Hernan-dez, who runs the shop and is from El Salvador. Yesterday, a guy bought seven bibles.ŽFather Matthew Zuberbueler, who is called Padre ZŽ by the churchs many Latino parishioners, said it is hard to know if immigra-tion worries are causing more people to come to St. Antho-nys because the church has long seen a steady stream of people come through its doors throughout the day.The people here have always had serious needs,Ž Zuberbueler said. Its not new to them to have a struggle.ŽThey come knowing, he said, when there is nowhere else to turn, you can always turn to God.ŽMany parishioners who come during the day walk straight to a statue and pray quietly, he said. Some leave behind handwritten notes. When the church displayed a relic of St. Anthony„ a bone„ in a glass case earlier this month, people lined up to kiss it.For nonbelievers, candles and statues may seem like silly vessels for hopes, especially when the stakes are so high. I used to think so, too.As a child, I attended Catholic school, and later, after I entered public school, I still had to spend Sunday mornings in a classroom at my church. But even as I memorized the required prayers, I didnt see the point in asking Saint Jude for help with a lost cause or lighting a giant candle for a sick family member.Then I had children. And in those moments when I would have done anything to protect them, but knew that I could only control so much, my grandmother always lit a candle for them. She did it for my aunts, uncles, cousins and siblings as well. My grandmother died three years ago, and while our family still feels much emptier without her, her candle remains in her home and is lit when anyone needs it.Looking skywardCandles shown on the shelves at Botanica Boricua in Arlington, Va.

B4 Saturday, June 23, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comThe comfort that small act provides goes beyond reli-gion. It is why people put out social media requests asking for good vibes and set up funds for donations. There is an assurance in knowing that even after we have done all we can, we have one last option: We can ask for help.Thats how we need to see these candles, which are sell-ing at higher rates across the country, according to the company that makes them. We need to see them as smoke signals carrying an SOS that shouldnt be ignored.The countrys immigration system is obviously broken, but this is not the way to repair it or to get a wall built. Recent photos that have emerged of the zero-toler-anceŽ policy in practice show a wailing 2-year-old watch-ing her mother searched by immigration agents. They show brown-skinned children held in chain-linked pens. Laura Bush, erasing political lines over Fathers Day weekend, called the policy cruelŽ and immoral.ŽThe truth is that even before the policy was put into place, immigrants were already feeling more fearful. Men and women with deep roots and no criminal records were finding themselves more vulnerable to deportation under the current administration. In the Wash-ington region, that has caused people to fear immigration check-ins that were previously routine and families to create plans for children who might come home to find their parents gone.It has also caused immigrants to march, stand together and, yes, pray.They pray, pray, pray and they believe they will get answers,Ž said Alejandro Tangarife, whose family owns the California-based company that provides the candles to Botanica Boricua and similar stores across the country. Sales of candles specific to immigration have gone up amid the policy changes, he said. People tend to go with the saints that help during very diffi-cult times, and Saint Michael is one of those.ŽTangarife, whose family is originally from Colombia, said that what is occurring in the country is hard to see.ŽI cant imagine going through that,Ž he said. It shouldnt happen that way.ŽOn a shelf below the San Miguel candle sits one that is not among the Botanicas bestsellers but is one maybe we should light as a country. It speaks to how we reached these depths and why not everyone is bothered that chil-dren will sleep again tonight in cages, with no one to comfort them. On the candle is a red-eyed monster and the Spanish word for what its flame prom-ises to ward off: Odio. Hate. LATINOSFrom Page B3352-259-9305 for information.

By Tim BontempsWashington PostBROOKLYN, N.Y. „ The 2018 NBA Draft didnt have quite the level of unpredict-ability it seemed to promise in the hours leading up to the first pick, but the leagues annual selection show still had its usual share of fireworks.Luka Doncic and Trae Young were swapped at the top of the draft, in a rare challenge trade among teams picking high. Mikal Bridges looked like a perfect fit in Philadelphia . until he was traded away a half-hour later in a stunning deal with Phoenix. The Los Angeles Clippers moved up one spot to land their point guard of the future, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, while Michael Porter Jr. fell farther than anyone anticipated to Denver at No. 14 as recently as a week-and-a-half ago.With those moves serving as a backdrop, heres a look at the winners and losers: Winners Dallas MavericksThe Mavericks have been looking for a bridge to the post-Dirk Nowitzki future for seven years. They may have finally found it with Doncic, who has a chance to chase Nowitzkis legacy as the greatest European bas-ketball player of all time.This move doesnt come without risk: The Mavericks gave away a 2019 first-round pick „ which is only top-five protected „ to get Doncic. But they got Doncic. In my opinion, he was the best player in this draft. A teen phenom who has an unmatched rsum for his age, winning a Euro-pean championship last summer with Slovenia and leading Real Madrid to both the Spanish and EuroLeague titles „ and being named MVP of both.This will be one of those trades that is talked about for years „ for good, or for ill. For now, though, it seems Dallas came away the big winner.

The Lightnings clos-est competitor „ Winter Park „ was a distant five-games behind.How have the Lightning done it?Who are some of the teams key contributors?Heres a look at four players who have played key roles in helping the Lightning take the FCSL by storm over the first three weeks of the season. In addition to each players stats, Lightning manager Rich Billings offers his perspective about each player. Jay Prather Position: infielder Class: senior College: University of North Florida Notes: Prather has slumped a bit over the past week but is still among the Lightnings top performers. The rising senior leads the team with 14 RBIs and is fourth with a .364 batting average.Prather is tied with Javeon Cody for the team lead in hits andis third with 17 total bases.He has yet to strike out this season and sports a .786 OPS.Prather has played every position on the field except pitcher, catcher and first base, and has made only three errors in 32 total chances. Hes helped to turn three double plays.Billings: Jay is an RBI machine. He manages to get runners across the plate when we have runners in scoring position. He played for the Lightning last year, and I think the fans love the way he plays the game. And hes a complete player. Hes as good as anyone we have on the defensive side and might be our most versatile player. Jay knows what he has to do to help us be successful. Javeon Cody Position: outfielder Class: senior College: Alvin (Texas) Community CollegeNotes: Cody came out of the gate at the start of the season hitting the ball ƒ and he hasnt stopped.He leads the FCSL with a .421 batting average and tops the Lightning with four dou-bles and 22 total bases.Cody is tied for the team lead with 16 base hits, is second with six stolen bases and is tied for fourth with eight RBIs.He leads the league with a 1.121 OPS.In the field, Cody has been perfect, recording 18 putouts in as many opportunities.Billings: Javeon has found every way possible to get on base for us this season.

Fridays game finished too late for Saturdays edition of the Daily Commercial.In Thursdays game, Florida freshman Jack Leftwich (5-5) allowed seven hits, walked two and struck out five in 6 ‡ innings. He escaped trouble in the second and fourth innings before leaving with two run-ners on base in the seventh.Thats when Tech (45-20) and its high-scoring offense started to make trouble for the Gators and their bullpen.Tech scored three times against four pitchers in the seventh to make it a two-run game. The Gators got those three runs back in the top of the eighth, with Brady Smith tripling off the center-field wall.Tech came back with three more runs in the eighth against three relievers to make it 8-6. Florida got one of those runs back in the ninth, and Michael Byrne pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his 16th save.Schwarz broke his right hand May 18 and returned to the lineup for Floridas first CWS game. He was 1 for 11 in Omaha, and 1 for his last 20 overall, when he sent a 1-1 pitch from Ty Harpenau into the left-field bullpen for a 5-0 lead in the sixth. It was his 13th homer of the season and 50th of his career.The Gators went up 1-0 without getting a hit against Caleb Kilian (9-3) in the fourth when Jonathan India walked, took second on a wild pitch, stole third and came home on another wild pitch.

C4 Saturday, June 23, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comof the order, even though hes not a true power hitter, because he knows how to move runners around the bases.Ž Dominic Jeancola Position: pitcher Class: seniorCollege: Embry-Riddle Aeronautical UniversityNotes: Jeancola has been lights out coming out of the Lightning bullpen.He has appeared in seven games „ all in relief „ and has a 1-0 record, allowing just three hits in 8 ‡ innings pitched. Jean-cola has yet to allow a run „ earned or unearned „ this season.Opponents are hitting just .103 against Jeancola, and he sports a microscopic WHIP „ walks and hits allowed per inning pitched „ of 0.69. He has struck out 11, while walking only three.Jeancola is in his second season with the Lightning.He fashioned a 1-1 record with a 1.83 ERA in 2017, lim-iting opposing hitters to a .212 batting average with a WHIP of 0.90, and 32 strikeouts in 34 ‡ innings.Billings: Dominic was an All Star for us last year and he looks to be heading back this year. He is the definition of consistency. Hes the type of player who can change a teams outlook when he comes in the game. You can feel it. When we put him on the mound, the attitude of the team changes. We know hes going to get us out of trouble.ŽJose Crisostomo Position: outfielder Class: freshman College: Miami-Dade College Notes: Crisostomo played in 11 of the Lightnings first 12 games and started in seven. He sports a .320 batting average with one homer and nine RBIs.Crisostomo became the first player in franchise history to homer in his first at bat „ a solo blast in the seventh inning of Leesburgs season-opening loss against DeLand. He has hit for the season cycle,Ž with a double, triple and homer among his eight hits.He has a gaudy OPS of 1.088.Billings: I call Jose our silent assassin. He produces, but he does it quietly. When you take a look at the box score after the game, you realize he had two or three hits and drove in a couple of runs. Hes played a big role in all three of the wins we had in final at bat. Jose just has a knack for getting on base and getting runners home when theyre on base.Ž BASEBALLFrom Page C1Jeancola Crisostomo spots in the Eastern Conference. But a half-hour later, Bridges was sent to Phoenix for the 16th pick (Zhaire Smith) and the Miami Heats unprotected pick in 2021.It is that unprotected Heat pick that truly makes this a win for Philadelphia. Smith oozes with potential, though it will take time for him to reach it. But getting that unprotected pick „ a rarity these days „ is the Sixers latest long-term thinking move, even as they try to con-tend for a title.And perhaps it is further ammunition to throw at San Antonio in a potential Kawhi Leonard deal. Adrian Wojna rowskiWhen it appeared the NBA had successfully stopped newsbreakers working for its broadcast partners „ led by Wojnarowski, the best of them „ from leaking picks before they were revealed on the air, it had been seen as a coup.Then the draft show came, and Wojnarowski again showed why he is the dominant force in the business. Instead of saying that a team was going to take a player, he found a different way to impart the same information in his tweets. For example:Source: Denver has cleared the way to choose Michael Porter Jr. with the 14h pick.ŽPhoenix is determined to select Zhaire Smith with 16.ŽThe Spurs are fixated on Lonnie Walker with the 18th pick, source tells ESPN.ŽThe internet howled with laughter as a result, and the NBA looked ridiculous for trying to impose the ban. Losers Michael Porter Jr.A year ago, Porter was a consensus top three talent. But after a back injury, subse-quent surgery and a hip issue that cropped up last week, he fell all the way to the Denver Nuggets at No. 14.The hitch in his step made it seem as though Porters recovery isnt going to be a short one, and it seems exceedingly likely he will not play one minute this season. Now, Denver is a great spot for him „ a good team that should make the playoffs without him, allowing him the time he needs to get healthy. And if Porter does get healthy, the Nuggets will look like geniuses. Mikal BridgesIts hard not to feel for Bridges, who initially appeared to be in a dream scenario. A Philly kid who went to Villanova and developed into the best player on a national title-winning team was given a chance to step in and contrib-ute to a rising Sixers team, for which his mom works as a vice president of human relations? It seemed like a match made in heaven. Until it wasnt. It was painful seeing Bridges doing interviews wearing a Sixers hat while news of the trade to Phoenix was coming out. Sixers coach Brett Brown, speaking to the media early Friday morning, admitted there were some tough conversations with his family about it. DRAFTFrom Page C1 in the fourth, but couldnt push across any runs until their rally late in the game.Josh Jung went 3 for 5 with two RBIs and Grant Little drove in three runs for Texas Tech. GRANTS GOLDENTechs Little made his second sensational catch of the CWS on Deacon Liputs deep fly to left in the third inning. Little sprinted back, jumped and made the catch. He landed with his back against the fence to rob Liput of a sure double. SPINARAMA, BASEBALL STYLEBig 12 freshman of the year Gabe Holt swung so hard at a fastball from Leftwich in the second inning that he spun around and fell on his rear end. As would be expected, the boys in the Tech dugout got a good laugh. UP NEXTBracket 2 finalists Florida and Arkansas havent met since they opened SEC play in late March. The Gators won two of three in Gaines-ville, Florida, with India going 6 for 9 with a homer and four RBIs in the series. GATORSFrom Page C1Texas Techs Brian Klein (5) is caught at second base by Florida shortstop Deacon Liput after trying to extend his base hit into a double during the third inning Thursday of the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. [NATI HARNIK/ASSOCIATED PRESS] so exaggerated that the ref-eree reversed the call after using video review. Neymar then angrily punched the ball a short time later as Costa Ricas players tried to waste time. It earned Brazils biggest star a yellow card.The joy, the satisfaction and the pride of represent-ing the national team is a lot,Ž Brazil coach Tite said, defending Neymar. He has the responsibility, the pres-sure. Everyone shows it in their own way.ŽNeymar seemed panicked for most of the second half as his shots sailed over the bar or simply missed the mark, and he complained over nearly every call. In danger of ending in a draw, Brazil seemed nervous but composed itself through the seven minutes of injury time.Coutinho was first to get the ball past goalkeeper Keylor Navas. Rising superbly to meet a header from Marcelos cross, Roberto Firmino nodded the ball down to striker Gabriel Jesus, who then flicked it to a sprinting Coutinho in the penalty area.In the seventh minute of injury time, Douglas Costa whipped in a cross from the right and Neymar deftly tapped it into the net.Both Firmino and Costa had come on as substitutes in the second half.I think Brazils changes made an impact,Ž Costa Rica coach Oscar Ramirez said. It became very dif-ficult for us.ŽBrazil has four points in Group E and plays Serbia in its final match in Moscow on Wednesday. Costa Rica has zero points and cannot advance.After a drab and scrappy first half at St. Petersburg Stadium, Brazil came out energized and the chances piled up. Jesus put a header onto the crossbar, and Ney-mars hurried shot curled wide.In Brazils opening 1-1 draw against Switzerland, Neymar had been fouled 10 times, sometimes harshly. But he was also in theatrical mode against Costa Rica, tumbling over dramatically when touched.We never tried to hurt him,Ž Ramirez said. We tried to play fairly but stop him fairly as well.ŽReferee Bjorn Kuipers twice waved away Ney-mars claims for fouls in the first half. He also ignored a Brazilian claim for a penalty after midfielder Paulinho bounced off defender Oscar Duarte contesting a high ball.Several players, including Neymar and Marcelo, com-plained to Kuipers at the end of the first half. Once again, he just waved them away.We dont need referees decisions to win a game,Ž Tite said. Brazil doesnt need any help.ŽNIGERIA 2, ICELAND 0: Ahmed Musa gave Nigeria its “ rst win at this years World Cup, and gave Argentina a gift. Musa scored two second-half goals to help the Nigerians beat Iceland 2-0 Friday and move into second place in the group behind alreadyquali“ ed Croatia. Nigeria will face Argentina in its “ nal group match on Tuesday in St. Petersburg. If Nigeria wins, it will advance to the round of 16. But if Argentina claims all three points, it can still advance depending on the result of the other match between Croatia and Iceland. Musa, Nigerias all-time leading World Cup scorer with four goals, has played well against Argentina before. His two previous goals came at the 2014 tournament in Brazil in a group match against the two-time champions. Its possible Im going to score another two goals,Ž the 25-year-old Musa said. On Friday, Musa gave Nigeria the lead in the 49th minute after Victor Moses sprinted deep into the Iceland half and curled a cross to the near post. Musa deftly controlled the ball before slamming it past Iceland goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson on the half-volley. Nigeria nearly doubled its lead on several occasions, but Musa made it happen in the 75th minute. He picked up the ball on the left side of the Iceland penalty area, mazed his way past Halldorsson and picked his spot in the Iceland goal. I think the control made it more perfect for me,Ž said Musa, who hinted he wants to leave Premier League club Leicester and play for CSKA Moscow. SWITZERLAND 2, SERBIA 1: Albanias national ” ag was at the center of Switzerlands 2-1 victory over Serbia on Friday at the World Cup. Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri celebrated their goals by making a nationalist symbol of their ethnic Albanian heritage. Both players put their open hands together with their thumbs locked and “ ngers outstretched to make what looks like the doubleheaded eagle displayed on Albanias ” ag. The thumbs represent the heads of the two eagles, while the “ ngers look like the feathers. I think about this, I dont want to speak,Ž said Shaqiri, who also took off his shirt after scoring. In football, you have always emotions. You can see what I did, and its just emotion, and Im just happy to have scored the goal. I did it, and we dont have to speak about this.Ž The gesture is likely to in” ame tensions among Serb nationalists and ethnic Albanians. Shaqiri was born in Kosovo, the former Serbian province that declared independence in 2008. Serbia doesnt recognize Kosovos independence and relations between the two countries remain tense. Xhakas parents are originally from Kosovo and they are of Albanian heritage. His brother plays for Albanias national team. SOCCERFrom Page C1 By Greg BeachamThe Associated PressSONOMA, Calif. „ As a born-and-bred Northern Californian, Kyle Larson is quite familiar with the numerous twists and 11 turns on the vaunted Sonoma Race-way road course.That doesnt make him much better at navigating them in a stock car.Turn 1 up through the hill, all the way basically through Turn 4, Im really good,Ž the Chip Ganassi Racing driver said Friday. Off of Turn 4, I struggle. (Turn) 7, I struggle. (Turn) 11, I struggle. Clint (Bowyer) is trying to teach me a little throttle control. That is where I lack. And then the Ss, Im decent at. And then Turn 11, I kind of (stink) again. Any corner where you have to slow down and speed back up, I tend to struggle at, so Ive got to get better at that.ŽLarson isnt alone. Road course racing skills „ such as the ability to turn right „ are becoming more important in NASCAR. The circuit has three non-oval tracks on its schedule this season for the first time in 31 years, and many drivers would like to see more in the future.Its fun to get to do some-thing totally different than (how) I grew up racing,Ž Larson said. A pavement oval is totally different than what I grew up doing, but a road course is way opposite. I enjoy it. I feel like I get better and better at it.ŽThe challenge begins in wine country this weekend on the tight, technical road track that has bedeviled many NASCAR drivers over the years. After the annual stop at Watkins Glens longer, faster road course in August, the drivers must figure out Charlotte Motor Speedways new hybrid track dubbed the rovalŽ „ a road course connected to its traditional oval „ at a playoff race in September.Kevin Harvick noted that as recently as 10 years ago, many NASCAR drivers and fans didnt enjoy racing on road courses. These days, he says, most drivers relish the chance to test the full measure of their abilities.More turns lead to more strategic possibilities for the teams, along with more wear on their tires and brakes. Two-wide restarts can be pandemonium on the tight Sonoma track. It all adds up to a good chance Sunday for exciting racing, which is what everybody needs.I think driver means more than car at this particular race track,Ž Denny Hamlin said. The driver has so many inputs, from the wheel to the brake, clutch and gas and everything. Were doing so much within the lap.

Oil prices rose after OPECs announcement, which analysts cited as evidence that investors believe the actual increase in production will be smaller, about 600,000 to 700,000 barrels a day.After an OPEC meeting in Vienna, Emirati Energy Minister Suhail al-Mazrouei said the cartel decided to fully comply with its existing production ceiling.Because the group had been pro-ducing below that level, that means an increase in production of a little bit less than 1 million barrels,Ž the Emirati minister said.How that translates into effective production increases is uncertain, as some OPEC countries cannot easily ramp up production. Iran, for example, has been hit by U.S. sanctions that hinder its energy exports. Venezuelas production has dropped amid domestic political instability.The price of oil jumped after the announcement, with the international benchmark, Brent, gaining 2.5 percent to $74.84 a barrel in London, and U.S. crude climbing 4.9 percent to $68.72 a barrel in afternoon trading in New York „ on track for its biggest one-day rise since OPEC agreed in November 2016 to cut production.Al-Mazrouei noted that the decision is challenging for those countries that are struggling with keeping their level of production.Ž However, he indicated that some countries could pick up production if others lag.We will deal with it collec-tively,Ž he said.U.S. shale oil production has helped offset some of OPECs cutbacks since 2016. However, operators in the Permian Basin of Texas face a shortage of pipeline capacity, trapping a fair amount of oil and limiting the availability of that shale increase,Ž said Jim Rittersbusch, a consultant to oil traders.Still, some analysts believe that a combination of the OPEC deal, U.S. oil, and an easing of American demand for energy should eventu-ally contribute to lower oil prices, which in May hit their highest levels in more than three years.Longer term, this is a bit of a win for consumers,Ž said Jamie Webster, director of Boston Con-sulting Groups Center for Energy Impact. More oil on the market means relatively lower prices for consumers.ŽFridays decision means the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries will observe the production level it agreed on in late 2016, when it cut output by 1.2 million barrels a day. In practice, the reduction was even deeper due to production problems. That has since then helped push up the price of oil by almost 50 percent.Non-OPEC countries like Russia had agreed in 2016 to participate in OPECs effort to raise prices, cut-ting another 600,000 barrels a day of their own production. They will discuss with OPEC on Saturday on whether to increase their production. While OPECs largest producer, Saudi Arabia, was open to higher production, Iran has been hesitant because sanctions imposed by U.S. President Donald Trump are making it difficult for the coun-try to export its oil.Trump has been calling publicly for the cartel to help lower prices by producing more. And after OPECs deal on Friday, Trump tweeted: Hope OPEC will increase output substantially. Need to keep prices down!ŽSome analysts note that while Trump has blamed OPEC, his pol-icies have also helped increase the cost of oil by, for example, limiting exports from Iran.Some analysts believe that Saudi Arabia needs a Brent price closer to $90 a barrel to cover its domestic spending but is feeling pressure from the United States to head off rising prices by boosting output.

PAGE 25 | Saturday, June 23, 2018 E1 HOMES STORMSWHAT TO DO IN THE AFTERMATHHere are some tips from ServiceMaster Restore for what to do a er a severe storm: € Avoid driving or walking in oodwaters. Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down, and fastmoving waters can sweep your vehicle away. € When you return home, turn o the power to your house if you are able to reach the breaker box safely, or ask your power company to cut power remotely. Standing water inside your home can create an electrical shock hazard. PESTSTAKE THE STING OUT OF SUMMERTo reduce your yards chances of insect infest ation, Ortho recom mends making your yard less inviting. Yellow jackets enjoy spending time around trash, while mosquitoes are able to breed and thrive in even the smallest amount of water. Removing any or all of these appealing targets from your space will make your yard less desirable. ENERGYFOCUS ON WINDOWSTo improve your homes energye ciency this summer, LG recommends bringing your windows into focus. The role your windows have in dictating the temperature in your home can be considerable. Older windows allow cool air to escape outside and that makes your air conditioner work harder to control the interior temperature. „ Brandpoint Tom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 1. CONCRETEAppearance: Normally, concrete is plain gray. However, it can be “ nished with a huge selection of colors and textures. Adding attractive aggregate is another way to make your concrete driveway pop. Durability: 25-50 years. Climate-resistance: Concrete can be cracked by frost heave and damaged by salt-based deicers. Curing time: Wait 7 days before driving or parking cars on your new concrete driveway; 30 days for heavier vehicles. Cost: About $4 per square foot for basic concrete. To add patterns or color, $10 to $50 per sq. ft. Maintenance: Pressure wash as needed. Scrub oil stains with a brush and commercial degreaser. Seal every 3-5 years, more frequently if exposed to sodium chloride or magnesium chloride deicers. Repair: Fill small cracks as a DIY project. Larger cracks require the services of a concrete professional. Resurfacing is an option if the concrete is very worn. For serious cracking, pros recommend replacement, rather than repair.2. ASPHALTAppearance: A standard asphalt driveway has a ” at black surface. Its possible, though, to imprint it with patterns and UV-stable colors, either at the time of installation or up to several years later. Durability: Approximately 20 years with moderate maintenance. Climate-resistance: Asphalts ” exibility makes it resistant to frost heave. It is also resistant to damage from salt and chemical deicers. Asphalt, in standard black, tends to absorb the suns heat, which is good for melting snow off your drive in winter but can get awfully hot „ and even melt „ in the summertime. Curing time: Wait 1 day before using a new asphalt driveway installation. Cost: $3 to $5 per square foot. Maintenance: Asphalt may be swept, hosed down, or pressure washed to remove dirt. Seal to protect the surface against weather and ” uids every 2-3 years. Repair: When you need to repair just a small area, apply an asphalt crack sealer or cold patch. For larger “ xes, simply overlay an additional layer atop the original asphalt in a process called recapping.Ž3. GRAVEL Appearance : Types of gravel driveway range in appearance from plain gray gravel to elegant and colorful varieties of crushed stone, such as granite or marble. Durability: 100 years or more with scrupulous maintenance. Climate-resistance: Freeze-thaw cycles are not a problem for this driveway material but in an area with harsh winters, snow removal can be a problem. Curing time: Use immediately after installation. Cost: $1 to $3 per square foot. Usually the cheapest in terms of labor, since its simplest to install. Price of materials varies depending on what type of gravel or crushed stone you choose. Maintenance: Weeds can grow easily and must be removed. You might want to add a binder for dust control. Refresh your gravel driveway every 1-5 years by adding to the top layer. Repair: Repair is simple „ just spread more g ravel.4. INTERLOCKING PAVERSAppearance: An interlocking paver driveway offers abundant curb appeal. There are several paver materials „ concrete, brick, clay, and natural stone (” agstoneŽ). Durability: 20-25 years, or longer for natural stone Climate-resistance: A paver driveway stands up well to temperature changes and deicers. Eco-friendly permeable pavers allow rainwater to reabsorb into the ground. Curing time: Use immediately after installation. Cost: Starts at $5 per square foot. Depending on which paver you choose, cost may rise to over $50 per sq. ft. Maintenance: Sweep or hose down. Seal a paver driveway annually or biannually against moisture and stains. The sand between pavers may need weeding and occasional ant control. Repair: If a few pavers are damaged or badly stained, its a simple matter to replace them … assuming that you ordered some spares at the time of installation. Otherwise, you will have to look for the best match.Laura Firszt writes for materialsBy Laura Firszt More Content NowThe four most popular driveway materials today are concrete, asphalt, gravel and pavers. How do you decide on the best one for your home? Sizing them all up may seem as baffling as comparing apples to oranges, but dont panic. Our detailed guide to each type of driveway Compare before you choose The garage door is probably the largest and most used mechanical part in your home, and with normal wear and tear coupled with extreme Central Florida temperatures, parts will break. Nothing will panic a homeowner more than a car trapped inside of a garage because the door will not open, especially when there are places to go and people to see. Lets face it, most garage doors break at the worst time, causing homeowners to panic and make desperate calls for help. A panicked homeowner and a disreputable garage door service company is a bad combination. Unfortunately, this is happening more frequently in Central Florida to our senior population. Daily, seniors are being ripped offed by garage door service companies who claim more repairs are needed on their garage door than required. Stories of garage door sensors blocked by a misplaced broom are turning into hundreds of dollars in repairs from dishonest service people who claim the rollers and springs are bad. It is shameful. How do you prevent yourself from being ripped off by a disreputable garage door service company? „First, when a garage door fails to call at least two different providers for a quote. When placing the call for service, ask what the upfront cost is to inspect the door „ the total cost. Some of these crooks AROUND THE HOUSEBeware of garage door scammers Don MagruderDon Magruder says he knows of “ rsthand accounts in which seniors have been charged service calls to repair garage doors that cost more than replacing the door. A scam to replace all the rollers or upgrade with stainless steel parts is occurring every day. [GATEHOUSE MEDIA FILE] See MAGRUDER, E2


E2 Saturday, June 23, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comHere at the Lake County Ag Center, we host two technicians that work for the University of Florida IFAS on an important project called FAWN, the Florida Automated Weather Network. These skilled technicians maintain many of the 42 weather stations around the state, allowing collection and storage of valuable data on all things weather every 15 minutes. Ever drive by one of those towers rigged with wires and devices, and wonder what for, and why?Ž It is for data that assists farmers (and residents) with wise water-use decisions. For instance, Lake Countys Okahumpka station is located at the USDA Whitmore Foundation Farm. If you follow this link and click Station LocationŽ on the left, you can zoom down on a Google Map to see the location at: https:// So, if you are a homeowner with an irrigation system seeing this data, could you possibly conclude that April might be an important month to make sure your lawns irrigation system is working properly with good coverage? Of course, because we typically have warm days, increasing day length, and less than 2 inches of rain in the entire month. June data, however, would be a great reminder to make sure that your rain sensor is functioning properly to avoid wasteful and disease-enhancing overwatering. Those rain sensors on your roof eave dont last forever; an annual check-up is advised, and now is the right time. To check your rain sensor, we recommend that you trick your system into coming on automatically. Dont just use the manual onŽ as this frequently overrides the sensor. With the sprinklers running, aim a hose at the sensor and douse it. Within a minute or two, your system should shut off. If not, you may need to replace a faulty rain sensor. FAWN provides access to an app developed for homeowners, My Virtual Lawn. Check it outto see how it can help in your irrigation decision making: https://fawn.ifas. Floridas population in 2000 was 15,982,824. In 2018, it is estimated at 21,312,211 … an increase of 33 percent in only 18 years. Thats a lot more people sharing the same amount of fresh water. We all have to have fresh water to drink, and our farmers also need water to produce and protect our food. To assist farmers, FAWN created a smartphone app for the My Florida Farm Weather (MFFW) program, a Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) cost share program that helps growers establish basic on-farm weather stations for which FAWN collects and manages data. The app is available for iPhone and Android platforms. It shows an interactive map of the state with the location and current temperature at each station. Users can view the current measurements at a station, graphs of data, decision making tools for using water for freeze protection, and can save stations to a list of Favorites. Good information leads to good decision making. UF/IFAS is leading the way, and your Extension office is here to help. Check out the FAWN website for yourself at https://fawn. And go to our Extension website at Lloyd Singleton is a Florida-friendly landscaping agent at the UF/ IFAS Sumter County Extension and the interim director at the Lake County Extension.

[SUBMITTED] Lloyd Singleton try to include mileage and travel time without the knowledge of the homeowner. If the quote seems too high, then it probably is. „Next, ask where their physical office or showroom is located and verify they have a legitimate office in the area. Many of these charlatans have a pickup truck and sign on their door for an office. Google Maps is a wonderful tool that can show you their office at street level. If the office is a house or warehouse unit „ beware. If they tell you that the spring on your garage door is broken, ask to see the break in the spring „ this is easily spotted because you will see a gap. Beware of the garage door service company that wants to sell you add-on parts or upgrades to your door. Because garage doors installed in the state of Florida over the last 14 years meet specific hurricane standards, parts do not have to be upgraded. Beware of those companies who claim the garage door was installed with substandard parts. It is a scam when you hear things like this. Most legitimate companies are installing completely engineered door systems, which have been tested to meet Florida Building Code. A common scam being planned in local retirement communities is that the builder had doors installed with substandard systems, when that is not the case. New doors are being installed with state approved systems and most builders are doing a good job ensuring these doors are up to Florida Building Code and pass inspection. If you feel you are being ripped off by a garage door company „ dont pay the bill. Have their work inspected by a legitimate garage door installer, who is certified by the International Door Association, to verify the work done was necessary and done correctly. If you were ripped off, report them to the developer and local building code officials. Signing an authorization or paying the bill puts you in a bad position. Pay attention to what they are telling you. If comments are made to invoke fear, slam another garage door installer or seem threatening in anyway „ run. Dont be intimidated into making a bad decision. Fear and intimidation are two selling techniques of garage door scammers. Keep in mind, a legitimate garage door company will get your garage door working again and provide you with an honest assessment of what is broken. Just like anything mechanical, breakdowns will occur, and maintenance will be required. However, it is not life or death as scammers would make it. Recognize when someone is preying upon your emotions and fear. I know of firsthand accounts in which seniors have been charged service calls to repair garage doors that cost more than replacing the door. A scam to replace all the rollers or upgrade with stainless steel parts is occurring every day. Dont become one of their victims. Don Magruder is the CEO of Ro-Mac Lumber & Supply Inc. He is also the host of the Around the House radio show heard every Monday at noon on My790AM WLBE in Leesburg. MAGRUDERFrom Page E1By Jura KonciusThe Washington PostMosquitoes are poised to be the biggest party crashers of the summer. The torrents of rain that fell in May and the above-average temperatures predicted for June and July are perfect conditions for a bumper crop of buzzing bugs. Its not welcome news. Illnesses caused by mosquitoes, fleas and ticks more than tripled in the United States since 2004, according to a report released this month by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And more people have concerns about the West Nile and Zika viruses. With this much rain, were going to have the perfect storm: Lots of standing water and lots of mosquitoes,Ž says Lee Roeder, general manager of Strosniders Hardware in Bethesda, Maryland, which stocks dozens of anti-mosquito products, including head nets and purse-size essential-oil repellents. So, if youre hosting a family reunion, graduation party or just a simple backyard barbecue, youll need a battle plan. Removing standing water on your property from plant saucers, clogged gutters and garden containers (potential breeding sites) is as important as stringing party lights and stockpiling ice. Theres an array of products marketed to help deal with mosquitoes and other annoying flying critters: Sprays, herbs, zappers, citronella, coils, lanterns, candles, oils, dunks, fogs, torches, table-top diffusers, wipes, lotions and onetime yard treatments. (For advice on using repellents safely, check out the Environmental Protection Agencys website, Consumers have mixed feelings about various types of repellents (just scroll down to the reviews on any product page online), and research shows similarly mixed results. Solutions that work for some dont work for others. I can understand why people look for different types of repellents,Ž says Joseph Conlon, spokesman for the American Mosquito Control Association, but DEET is the gold standard by which all others are judged, because of repellency tests, and its been around for 60 years.Ž Although some people continue to have reservations about DEET (especially in regard to children, pets and pregnant women), Consumer Reports testers have addressed many of these concerns and report that the chemical is safe and effective when used as directed.Ž Event planners and caterers say bug control strategy is now a standard item on client checklists. Its a timely topic. When a party is out-ofdoors, everyone wants to know how to handle it,Ž says Lynn Easton, founder and creative director of Easton Events, a special-events firm in Charlottesville, Virginia and Charleston, South Carolina. You dont want your guests eaten to death.Ž Easton says she brings insect repellent in different forms to her gatherings. I do a pretty little tray outside with sprays and organic [repellent] bracelets, and sometimes herbs and essential oils such as peppermint, lavender and cedarwood,Ž she says. The bracelet she swears by is the Parakito Mosquito Repellent Wristband, which is made with seven natural oils including citronella, rosemary and clove, and is refillable. Dont let bugs ruin your summer fun

But when the that sun-loving yucca dies in your shady, wet-soil backyard, or that plastichandled spade breaks the first time you used, youve wasted money and youre frustrated. To help you avoid financial heartbreak, garden experts shared common mistakes they see new gardeners make. 1. Youve neglected the soil. Joe Raboine, national design and training specialist for Belgard, a landscape supply firm, said that when people dig up part of their yard, install a raised bed or build a small vertical garden, good soil will mean the difference between plants that thrive and those that wither. Plants need a foot of soil to grow properly, he said. In some yards, much of the original topsoil is gone and needs to be replaced. In raised beds, Raboine said, people dont put enough decent soil in. They put in, lets say, a bunch of scraps or gravel or things in the bottom of the container, and it just doesnt give plants enough of a place to grow roots.Ž Remedy this by buying topsoil or garden soil for yards and potting soil for raised beds and containers. 2. Choosing the wrong plants „ and cramming in too many. Tim Johnson, senior director of horticulture at Chicago Botanic Garden, and Renee Young, manager at Christy Webber Farm and Garden, see these mistakes a lot. Where a lot of people go wrong from the get-go is they dont know plants. Youre in the garden center and you see something thats in flower and beautiful, and its like, Oh, that would look great in this corner of my garden,  Johnson said. But gardeners need to consider their spots growing conditions. A plant that likes marshy conditions doesnt do well in dry soils, just as a plant that wants afternoon sun might not tolerate shade. Think about your design goals, he said, and talk to the staff for advice on what plants will fulfill those dreams. If your heart is set on a flowering viburnum that can mature at 7 or 8 feet high, but you dont have the space, ask if theres a dwarf version that will look just as good. Young said she sees people stuffing too many plants into small spaces. People will want to put three tomatoes in a 12-inch pot, and really one 12-inch pot is barely big enough for one tomato plant,Ž she said. A tomato plant without a roommate will likely produce more fruits than those in the overcrowded pot that will be fighting for nutrients and light, she said. 3. Buying cheap tools. Bargain tools dont last. That doesnt mean you have to buy the most expensive tools available, but you should invest in quality. Johnson said gardeners should pick up the tools and judge how they feel in their hands. Look for something comfortable and sturdy, he said, which may mean something different for each gardener. Good-quality tools have warranties, Young said. She likes hand tools by Dutch company DeWit, which have lifetime warranties. I try to encourage people to go with that tool thats going to last you a lifetime over something thats less expensive and may break after a couple of seasons,Ž she said. Other brands she recommends are Corona and, for pruners, she said, they all use ones by Felco, whether at the store or on landscaping jobs. 4. You didnt think about watering. Raised beds and vertical gardens, especially on rooftops, can dry out quickly. They may need daily watering and even more when temps hit 90. Raboine and Young said you need to buy, at a minimum, a watering can and hose. Young said Bond Aeroflex ($24.99 makes attractive expandable hoses that shrink for storage in small places. Raboine said another option is to install drip irrigation, either with kits, such as those by DIG ($29.94, www. or by creating your own by drilling holes in PVC pipes. Improper watering can stunt or kill plants. 5. Youre overdoing it on fertilizer or pesticides. If youre gardening to be more environmental, the last thing you want to do is waste money on expensive fertilizers, and many of these can make your plant dependent on the feedings. (Synthetic) can harm your plant quite a bit. If you overfertilize, it will burn the roots of the plant, or the plant is so dependent on the synthetic fertilizer that the minute you stop using it, it begins to fail because it needs that constantly,Ž Young said. She recommends organic fertilizers that feed the microbes and the soil, which will then in turn feed your plants. Johnson frowns on the yearlong fertilizer programs that weed and feedŽ lawns, such as powders or granular types in bags available at garden-supply shops, noting many release unneeded chemicals. If you feel the need to treat existing insect or weed problems, he recommends using liquid sprays for spot treatments. In my mind, ƒ you shouldnt be applying any sort of a pesticide, whether its herbicide or insecticide if you dont need to,Ž he said.Common mistakes when buying garden suppliesRaised beds and vertical gardens, especially on rooftops, can dry out quickly and may need daily watering.

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married 2 1/2 years. We have both been married before. I have a son, and he has three daughters. My son is married with two children. He works and is pretty self-sufcient. Two of my husband's daughters live in the same city we do. They are 26 and 28. They don't have cars or driver licenses and live with their mother, who is also car-less. They often ask us for transportation. While I don't mind doing it once in a while, we are not a taxi service. Occasionally, they'll offer gas money. But my point is, every time the car is started and driven down the street, there is wear and tear on the vehicle. The girls don't step up when it's time to pay repair bills. This is a constant argument between my husband and me, and I don't know what to do about it. I love my stepdaughters, but in my opinion, they are old enough to be more self-sufcient. Advice, please. -DESPERATE IN RENO, NEV. DEAR DESPERATE: You're right; the "girls" are old enough. The solution to your problem lies in helping them become independent. This is what you should discuss with their father. There is a public transportation system in your community, and they should be familiar with it. If for some reason that's not workable, perhaps their father could help them pay for driving lessons and/or a down payment on a used vehicle of their own.DEAR ABBY: My ance told me that an old friend of mine whom I am close to has kissed him goodbye on the lips twice now. He said the last time she did it, it made him feel uncomfortable and guilty. I have never seen her do this to anyone else, and to be honest, I was angry about it when he told me. I am the godmother of her child, and I feel awkward around her now. What should I do? Should I let her come to me, or tell her it has been brought to my attention? -IN A WEIRD SPOT IN CALIFORNIA DEAR WEIRD SPOT: Ideally, your ance should ask her to stop kissing him on the mouth. However, if he's not up to doing that, tell your old friend your ance mentioned that the last few times he has seen her, she kissed him on the mouth and it made him uncomfortable. Then tell her that when you heard about it, it made YOU uncomfortable, so please don't do it again.DEAR ABBY: I was eating a Greek salad at a restaurant the other night, and I started to wonder about the polite way to eat olives with pits. I typically put the whole thing in my mouth, eat the esh, then pull the pit out with my ngers and place it on a dish. I started wondering if it was rude to reach into my mouth and spit things out in a restaurant. What is the polite way to eat an olive in public? -IT'S THE PITS IN NEW YORK DEAR PITS: According to etiquette experts the Post family, you have done nothing wrong. The key to disposing of an olive pit is to do it discreetly. (Shield the maneuver with your napkin to avoid offending your companion(s) if you're not alone.)

TODAY'S HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY: On June 23, 1868, Christopher Latham Sholes received a patent for his "Type-Writer," featuring a QWERTY keyboard; it was the rst commercially successful typewriter. ON THIS DATE: In 1938 the Civil Aeronautics Authority was established. In 1947 the Senate joined the House in overriding President Harry S. Truman's veto of the Taft-Hartley Act, designed to limit the power of organized labor. In 1950 Northwest Orient Airlines Flight 2501, a DC-4, crashed into Lake Michigan with the loss of all 58 people on board. In 1968 a syndicated newspaper column by Joseph Kraft coined the term "Middle America." In 1972 President Richard Nixon and White House chief of sta H.R. Haldeman discussed using the CIA to obstruct the FBI's Watergate investigation. (Revelation of the tape recording of this conversation sparked Nixon's resignation in 1974.) President Nixon signed Title IX barring discrimination on the basis of sex for "any education program or activity receiving federal nancial assistance."
