B7 VOLUME 142, ISSUE 176 2018 GateHouse Media Home delivery: 352-787-0600 By Lisa Marie PaneThe Associated PressGAINESVILLE, Ga. „ With Gary Rameys fledgling gun-making business taking off in retail stores, he decided to start offering one of his hand-guns for sale on his website.That didnt sit well with the company he used to process payments, and they informed him they were dropping his account. Another credit card processing firm told him the same thing: They wouldnt do business with him.The reason? His business of making firearms violates their policies.In the wake of high-profile mass shootings, corporate America has been taking a stand against the firearms industry amid a lack of action by lawmakers on gun control. Payment processing firms are limiting transactions, Bank of America stopped providing financing to companies that make AR-style guns, and retailers like Walmart and Dicks Sporting Goods imposed age restrictions on gun purchases.The moves are lauded by gun-safety advocates but criticized by the gun industry that views them as a backhanded way of undermining the Second Amendment. Gun industry leaders see the backlash as a real threat to their industry and are coming to the conclusion that they need additional protections in Congress to prevent financial retaliation from banks.If a few banks say No, were not going to give loans to gun dealers or gun manu-facturers, all of a sudden the industry is threatened and the Second Amendment doesnt mean much if there are no guns around,Ž said Michael Hammond, legal counsel for Gun Owners of America. If you cant make guns, if you cant sell guns, the Second Amendment doesnt mean much.ŽThe issue has already gotten the attention of the Republican who is chairman of the Senate Banking Committee. Sen. Mike Crapo of Idaho sent letters criticizing Bank of America and Citigroup, which decided to restrict sales of firearms by its business customers, over their new gun No funds for rearmsGary Ramey, owner and founder of Honor Defense, a gunmaker in Gainesville, Ga., holds a part from one of the companys “ rearms. Ramey and others in the gun industry are “ nding corporate America distancing itself from gunmakers and gun dealers, discontinuing discounts or refusing business.

[NEWS-JOURNAL/NIGEL COOK] By Brendan Farrington The Associated PressSANTA ROSA BEACH „ Along a stretch of white, sandy shoreline in the Panhandle, a simple question has led to profanity-laden arguments, private security guards and calls to law enforcement: Who owns the beach? In one coastal county, a new state law is set to rekindle that uproar just in time for the July 4th holiday.As of July 1, Walton County Sheriff Michael Adkinson said his deputies will have to start arresting people who put their beach blankets down in front of private homes and refuse to leave.We will start enforcing private property rights, which is up to including removing people from the beach,Ž Adkin-son said. We are required by law to treat the beach as if its somebodys front yard.ŽTo county residents like Dave Rauschkolb, a surfer and restaurant owner, thats just wrong.Beach access should be sac-rosanct for all. The notion of a private beach is an oxymoron,Ž he said. After this goes into effect, people can be physically removed from specific beaches, like bouncers at a bar, and to me thats despicable.ŽMany Florida beachfront homes own the sand down to the average high-water line. Yet in some counties, like Walton, local ordinances allow the public to put out towels and umbrellas, fish and hang out if its shown that those beaches have been open to the public Battle for the beachNew law reignites beach access ght in Panhandle Presidents plans o en marked by scant concern for immediate impact and changes made on the yBy Ken Thomas And Darlene SupervilleThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Maybe its not so easy after all. President Donald Trumps struggles to push immigration legislation through Congress and his about-face on break-ing up immigrant families are putting a spotlight on his competence in carrying out his policies.The fallout from Trumps handling of the separation of immigrant children from their families, which led to a sharp reversal from the president, has been reminiscent of the chaos sparked when Trump opened his administration by imposing a travel ban on immigrants entering from majority Muslim countries.Taken together, the events demonstrate how little Trump appears to have learned or adjusted his approach after that first rocky encounter with governing.

Authorities ordered people to evacuate all homes in the Spring Valley area, where about 3,000 people live.

Police said the explosion produced a large bang and rocked the multi-story building shortly before midnight Saturday, frightening people nearby so badly they ran out into the streets. The cause and nature of the explosion was under investi-gation, German news agency dpa reported. The blast had so much force it destroyed the attic and top three floors of the building, dpa said.

[JEFF CHIU/AP] DATELINESBy Suzan Fraser, Elena Becatoros and Zeynep BilginsoyThe Associated PressISTANBUL „ Turkeys President Recep Tayyip Erdo-gan declared victory after unofficial election returns Sunday showed him with enough votes to serve another term that carries new execu-tive powers.The nation has entrusted to me the responsibility of the presidency and the executive duty,Ž Erdogan said in televised remarks from Istanbul after a near-complete count carried by the state-run news agency gave him the majority needed to avoid a runoff.The presidential election and a parliamentary election also held Sunday, both more than a year early, complete NATO-member Turkeys transition from a parliamen-tary system of government to a strong presidential system. Voters approved the change in a referendum last year.Erdogan, 64, insisted before the election that the expanded powers „ which include the authority to impose states of emergency and to issue decrees „ would bring pros-perity and stability to Turkey, especially after a failed military coup attempt in 2016. A state of emergency has been in place since the coup.The presidents critics, however, warned that Erdo-gans re-election would cement the grip on power of a leader who they accuse of showing increasingly auto-cratic tendencies.Official results were to be declared by the countrys electoral board.Results carried by the state-run Anadolu news agency with more than 96 percent of ballot boxes counted showed Erdogan winning an outright majority of 52.6 percent, far ahead of the 30.75 percent for his main contender, the secular Muharrem Ince.Kurdish candidate Sela-hattin Demirtas, who ran his campaign from prison where he is being held pending trial on terrorism-related charges, was garnering 8.1 percent. He has called the charges trumped-up and politically motivated.However, Ince said the results carried on Anadolu were not a true reflection of the official vote count by the countrys electoral board. In a tweet earlier in the evening, he said only 37 percent of ballot boxes had actually been counted, as opposed to the more than nearly 90 per-cent Anadolu was reporting at the time. He accused the agency of manipulationŽ of the results.Erdogan also declared victory for the Peoples Alliance, an electoral coalition between his ruling Justice and Development Party and the small Nationalist Movement Party, saying they had a parliamentary majorityŽ in the 600-member assembly.Erdogan claims victory in TurkeyTurkeys President Recep Tayyip Erdogan delivers a statement on national television Sunday from his of“ cial residence in Istanbul. Erdogan has claimed victory in critical elections based on unof“ cial results, securing an executive presidency with sweeping powers. [LEFTERIS PITARAKIS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]

PETERSBURGSuspect dead, 2 injured in St. Petersburg home invasionturned-shootingThree people forced their way into a St. Petersburg house before dawn Sunday before gunfire broke out, killing a sus-pect and injuring two residents, police said.About 5:30 a.m., the people arrived at a house in Childs Park and forced their way inside, according to St. Petersburg Police Department spokes-woman Yolanda Fernandez.Three adult brothers live at the house, she said.Someone started shooting. One of the suspects, 35-year-old Cory D. McClendon, died. Two residents „ Ackeem Marks, 25, and Shaevaughn Marks, 20, also were hit but are in stable condition, police said. Ackeem Marks was critically injured, and his brother Shaevaughns inju-ries were not life-threatening, according to police.In 2003, McClendon was arrested in the shooting death of a man in what police then called a fight over a drug deal. He pleaded no contest to a charge of manslaughter and served more than 10 years in prison. He was arrested again in February on felony MDMA, crack cocaine and marijuana charges and was scheduled to appear in court Monday for a plea change.Shell casings were visible on the street outside Sunday morning. The other two suspects are at large, and police did not give a description of them. Fernandez said the department does notthink the shooting was random or that there is a ongo-ing threat to public safety. TAMPABondi confronted by protesters at Mr. Rogers movieProtesters confronted Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi at a showing of a documentary about childrens TV host Fred Rogers, and they questioned the Republicans stands on immi-gration and health care.The Tampa Bay Times reported Bondi received a police escort Friday when several members of Organize Florida confronted her as she left a Tampa theater after seeing Wont You Be My NeighborŽ about Mr. Rogers. The demonstrators questioned Florida joining a lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act and Bondis general support of President Donald Trumps immigration policies.This is at least the third time a Republican official has been confronted at a public place in recent days over the presidents immigration policy that separated parents entering the country illegally at the Mexi-can border from their children.

TALLAHASSEEChief financial officer pays state for car useFloridas chief financial offi-cer reimbursed the state for using a state-owned SUV but only after he was questioned about it.Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis paid more than $4,000 in May for using a state-owned Chevrolet Tahoe. Spokesman Jon Moore said Patronis stopped using the Tahoe in November, but made the reimbursement months later out of an abun-dance of caution.This payment, however, came right after a reporter asked Patronis about state vehicle use.Politico reported Patronis payment on Friday.While using the Tahoe in October, Patronis had an acci-dent in Tallahassee and received a ticket. Patronis was traveling to his political consultants office to pick up thank-you cards.Moore said Patronis paid for the repairs. Ledger wire reportsBy Dara Kam The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ Seven years after slamming the brakes on a federally backed bullet train, Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced Friday that his administration is seeking proposals for a high-speed rail connection from Orlando to Tampa.Scott „ whose term expires in January and who is running in a heated contest against Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson „ turned down $2.4 billion in federal funds for a Tampa-to-Orlando bullet train shortly after taking office in 2011, citing cost overruns on rail projects in other states.But, in a press release Friday, Scott said the new project would be privately funded. The request for pro-posals came after the Florida Department of Transportation and the Central Florida Expressway Authority received an unsolicited proposal to lease property owned by the state and CFX (the expressway authority) to build a high-speed train along Interstate 4,Ž the release said.Instead of placing taxpay-ers on the hook for hundreds of millions of dollars, our goal is for the private sector to invest in this project. Through private investment, we ensure that this major project has zero financial risk to Florida taxpayers,Ž Scott said.The I-4 corridor, which is renowned for some of the states worst traffic, is also home turf to a voting bloc considered crucial for Flor-ida statewide candidates like Scott.Fridays announcement came less than two hours after Nelson tweeted that he was sitting in traffic on I-4, where traffic is bad.ŽAgain, I am officially calling on Gov. Scott to let us build high-speed rail. We would be riding at 180 mph between Orlando and Tampa right now had he not turned away $2.4 billion in 2011,Ž the rest of Nelsons tweet read.Following the announcement, Nelson quickly Scott pitches high-speed rail project By Deborah Strange GateHouse FloridaGAINESVILLE „ After years of lobbying and con-struction, the University of Florida is about to open a state-of-the-art honey bee research lab.Its realization was a com-bined effort by UF, the state of Florida and the states beekeepers.Beekeepers have come out of everywhere to support this,Ž said Jamie Ellis, assistant professor of entomology at UF.Tony Hogg, former pres-ident of the Florida State Beekeepers Association, said the association had realized the states climate and the UF entomology department brought bee researchers and beekeepers from around the country and around the world.We really need to have a world-class honey bee research facility in the state of Florida,Ž Hogg said. For three years, beekeep-ers lobbied for the state Legislature to approve fund-ing to create a bee research lab. The first two years, the Legislature approved the spending, but Gov. Rick Scott vetoed it.In 2016, the Legislature and Scott gave the project $2 million if beekeepers raised $200,000 and UF raised $500,000. The research building is an investment worth $4 million, Ellis said, with beekeepers and UF funding the difference.The biggest threat to Flor-idas honey bees is varroa, a parasite that feeds on bee fat, Ellis said. Researchers are looking into how to control varroa and improve the effectiveness of existing strategies.Because the economy currently favors honey production, Ellis said, bee-keepers have been able to recuperate their losses New buzz at UF Jamie Ellis, assistant professor of entomology at the University of Florida and a honey bee expert, shows off a room in one of the three buildings encompassing the new honey bee research and education lab on the UF campus on Wednesday. The main building has of“ ces for researchers, classrooms for students and space for extension projects to reach beekeepers and those interested in bees within the community. [BRAD MCCLENNY/GAINESVILLE SUN] Assistant entomology professor Jamie Ellis points out that the hexagonal windows at the new honey bee research and education lab will have lights, and on the outside of the building there will be colored hexagons the same size as the windows to tie in the bee hive theme. [BRAD MCCLENNY/GAINESVILLE SUN] By Lloyd DunkelbergerThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE„ Citi-zens Property Insurance will delay any decision on 2019 rate increases until Decem-ber, with officials saying they want to assess the impact of a new program designed to curb the cost of non-weather water claims.The Citizens Board of Gov-ernors, meeting Wednesday in Maitland, voted unanimously to wait until a Dec. 12 meeting to consider a rate increase that would average 7.9 percent for residential policyholders across the state. Commer-cial policyholders, including condominium associations, would face an 8.9 percent average rate increase under the proposal.Bette Brown, a consumer representative on the board, urged members to put off the vote, saying large portions of the state are still recovering from the impact of last years Hurricane Irma.I feel very strongly that Citizens Property Insurance puts rate increase decision on holdThis photo taken Tuesday, Oct. 24, 2017, shows the Pelican Cove Resort and Marina undergoing renovations due to Hurricane Irma, in Islamorada, Fla.

A4 Monday, June 25, 2018 | DailyCommercial.com Funeral Services Keith ScalzittiKeith Scalzitti, 63 of Fruitland Park, lost his two year battle with cancer on 6/20/2018. He was brave through the rigors of treatment and was always hopeful for a cure. He served in the USN as a cook on the USS Francis Marion at the end of the Vietnam War. His passion for cooking continued throughout his life as he prepared so many delicious meals for friends and family. Keith also loved to “sh and was a fan of fresh water lakes. He loved the outdoors and vacations included camping, house-boating and of course “shing. Keith was an accomplished Mechanical Engineer for his entire work career and was able to “x anything mechanical. He worked for multiple industries in the Chicago land area and Las Vegas. His major area of expertise was as an electrician and his detail was impeccable. He was dedicated to his profession and was wellliked by his employers for his knowledge and problem-solving skills. Keith was born in Chicago, IL and moved to Florida in 2008. He was a devoted and supportive husband. Despite his physical dif“culties he always looked at the positive in every situation. He is survived by his wife Julie Ann (nee Dannenberg), sister Debbie Flores (Grants Pass, Oregon), adoptive Father James Scalzitti ( Sacramento ,CA), brother Elliott James Scalzitti ( Las Vegas, NV.) and aunt Sandra Collier (Las Vegas, NV).

Arrangements entrusted to Beyers Funeral Home and Crematory, Lady Lake, FL. Online condolences may be left at www. BeyersFuneralHome.com our state is still under some duress from this last storm. ƒ You can really see it in South (Miami-) Dade and in the Florida Keys,Ž said Brown, who lives in Monroe County.Florida Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis said he supported the decision by the board of the state-backed insurer.Passing along a costly burden to policyholders while many are still recovering from an active hurricane season is not a solution,Ž he said in a statement.Patronis also wrote a letter to the board, urging members to work on a solution to the controversial practice of assignment of benefits,Ž where policyholders sign over their insurance claims to contractors. Citizens and other insur-ers say the practice „ particularly with residential water-damage claims „ often leads to costly lawsuits and drives up rates.I remain committed to working with stakeholders from now until the December meeting to come up with better solutions to address the (assignment of benefits) epidemic while keeping policyholders best interest at the forefront,Ž Patronis said.Although members talked about delaying the rate decision until September, the board supported a recommendation from Citizens President Barry Gilway, who said waiting until December will give the state-backed insurer more time to evaluate the rate impact of a new managed repair program,Ž which starts Aug. 1.Under the program, Citizens policyholders who suffer water damage from a non-weather event like a burst water pipe or faulty water heater will have the option of making a regular claim under their policies but with a $10,000 cap for repairs, including a $3,000 limit for emergency services, like water removal.If they opt to use the managed-repair program, they will have their damage repaired by Citizens-approved contractors. There would be no limit on the repair costs and the work would be covered by a three-year warranty. Additionally, beginning July 1, policyholders can also use an emergency water-removal and drying service that will be provided at no charge by Citizens.The managed-repair program option is part of Citizens effort to reduce lawsuits stemming from assignments of benefits.Gilway said waiting until the boards December meeting will give us more adequate time, frankly, to deter-mine what impact we can expect from the managed repair program.ŽBoard member Marc Dunbar of Tallahassee said the delay will allow members to get our arms around all of the (rate) data and the suc-cess of the managed repair program.ŽBoard member Gary Aubuchon of Lee County supported the delay, but he also asked for the Citi-zens staff to evaluate the financial impact of delay-ing a rate increase, which under state law is capped annually at 10 percent.Typically, the Citizens board advances a rate request in the summer and, after a review and approval by the state Office of Insurance Regu-lation, rate changes take effect on Feb. 1. But the 2018 rate increase, which included a 6.6 percent hike for homeowners with multi-peril policies, did not take effect until May 1 because of a 90-day rate freeze that was imposed after Irma hit the state in September. As of May, Citizens had 443,000 policies, repre-senting about 6.5 percent of the residential market in Florida. RATESFrom Page A3rebuked Scott, accusing his opponent of falsely telling Florida taxpayers that they would have been on the hook for millionsŽ when Scott rejected the federal funds in 2011.That wasnt true then, and its still not true now. The federal government would have paid 90 percent of the cost to complete this project, while private companies would have paid the rest. And the governors own FDOT had a study that showed it would have made money in its very first year,Ž Nelson said in a statement issued by his Senate office.Scotts campaign swiftly punched back, mocking Nelson for backing high-speed rail because he doesnt like sitting in trafficŽ and ignoring the financial risks behind a massive government project.ŽGovernor Scott fought to protect taxpayer dollars and worked to find a cre-ative solution that would allow for private investment in the high-speed rail project. Bill Nelson is for growing government. Governor Scott is for growing jobs,Ž Scott campaign spokeswoman Lauren Schenone said in a statement.High-speed rail has been a divisive issue in Florida for years. In 2000, voters approved a constitutional amendment requiring the development of a high-speed rail system that would link major urban areas. But voters removed the requirement from the Constitution in 2004 after a campaign backed by then-Gov. Jeb Bush, who argued the state could not afford it.Scott later surprised lawmakers in Florida and in Washington, D.C., when he rebuffed President Barack Obamas effort to build a nationwide network of trains. In the press release issued Friday, Scotts office noted that private inter-city passenger rail service has been constructed and is currently being oper-ated in Florida at no cost to taxpayers.ŽWhile the news release was not specific, it appeared to be alluding to the Brightline passengerrail service, which runs from West Palm Beach to Miami and is ultimately planned to extend to Orlando. The service has been highly controversial, drawing legal and political opposition from communities between West Palm Beach and Orlando. Among other things, opponents have raised safety concerns about the system.The project announced Friday will provide an opportunity for the private sector to expand privately funded passenger rail service in the state at a zero risk to Florida taxpayers,Ž according to the governors office.Interested parties will have 120 days to submit proposals.But Florida Democrats criticized Scotts high-speed rail plans as election-year pandering.Its no surprise that „ in an election year „ Rick Scott is saying and doing anything to get a promotion, while Floridians are left in the dust,Ž Florida Democratic Party spokes-man Nate Evans said in a statement. RAILFrom Page A3 from parasites, poor forage quality or other bee stressors by splitting their colonies.If honey prices declined and beekeepers couldnt recover, he said, then pol-lination shortage would become a possibility.About 620,000 bee colonies travel in or through Florida each year, Ellis said, and most of the state has a yearround climate that bees tolerate well. Hogg said beekeepers will move their colonies to Florida in the fall or winter to allow their bee populations to grow before sending them to California to pollinate almond trees. Bees would otherwise be cloistered because of the cold, meaning their pop-ulations would remain stagnant.The newlab, which consists of three buildings, is off of Southwest Archer Road next to Steinmetz Hall, home to the UF entomology department.Hexagon windows in the main building tell you, yes, this is where the bee magic will happen. On the outside of the building, Ellis said, will be colored hexagons the same size as the windows to tie in the hive theme.The carpet is yellow and gray, and the offices walls are painted gray with a yellow accent wall.The hallways are wide, Ellis said, so antique bee-keeping tools and artwork depicting bees can be dis-played. Once everything is finished in the next few months, Ellis said, the main building might look like a museum.Itll be a bee experi-ence,Ž he said.The main building will have all of the departments bee research necessities to fulfil UFs land-grant mission. There are offices for researchers, classrooms for students and space for extension projects to reach beekeepers and those interested in bees within the community.A lab has a large window so visitors can examine research without interrupting it. A classroom has a closet for beekeeping suits and helmets. There are refrig-erators and incubators to help rear bees.The researchtopics include honey bee husbandry, integrated crop pollination and honey bee college and conservation.The main buildinghas a room with red lights because bees cant see red. When the room is red-lit, Ellis said, bees will act normal because they dont know theyre being watched.Ž There are 12 ports to allow bees to come inside or go outside.Two buildings outside will be home to a teaching pavilion and equipment for extracting and processing honey. Because UF studies sick bees to find out whats wrong with them, the department doesnt make honey. But local beekeep-ers can have their honey extracted as part of a class, Ellis said.Were trying to build a bee campus for the bee minds here,Ž Ellis said. Ellis expects he and his coworkers will move into the main building in a couple of weeks. A grand-opening will likely be held in August. The building isnt exclusive to any sect of students, beekeepers or bee enthusiasts. Its for everyone.Its really amazing what the beekeepers, the state and UF did,Ž Ellis said. BEEFrom Page A3Trumps pattern has been to outline a plan with scant concern or preparation for its immediate impact or consequences, and to make changes on the fly with the same lack of planning.The result has often gone far beyond bureau-cratic confusion, and has, at times, inflicted painful and unexpected consequences on peo-ples lives.Its not something that appreciates these young children and was certainly done in a ready, fire, aim way, obviously,Ž said Repub-lican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, describ-ing the administrations immigration policy. There was no prepara-tion for it.ŽTrump implemented a major new policy this spring with no apparent plan or new resources to handle the influx of people who would be detained and prosecuted as a result. When a public outcry ensued, the administration could not answer basic questions about it. Trump then changed the way the policy worked „ leaving officials within the administration and at the border confused on how to enact the changes. Plus, it took several days for the government to say how it planned to reunite families and where the separated children were located.Trumps struggles on immigration follow his failure last year to repeal the so-called Obamacare law, a central tenet of GOP orthodoxy since President Barack Obama signed it into law in 2010, and the presidents uneven implementation of his travel ban, which will be the subject of a Supreme Court ruling this week. New tariffs have strained relationships with European and North American allies and his Middle East peace plan is still under development amid a standoff with the Palestinians after he said the decades-old problem wouldnt be hard to solve.Trump has often mused since the 2016 presidential campaign that it would be so easyŽ to pass a sweep-ing immigration law and construct a big, beautifulŽ border wall, paid for by Mexico. Earlier this week, he tweeted that his Democratic leadership adversaries in Congress, Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York and Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, would be forced to do a real deal, so easy, that solves this long time problem.ŽBut the upcoming week could offer fresh evidence that the real-ity of governing is much more challenging.Republicans are seeking to steer an immi-gration bill through the House despite skepticism among conservatives and uncertainty about Trumps commitment to the plan. The president told House Republicans he was 1,000 percentŽ behind their effort last week but then suggested just three days later on Twitter that Republicans wait until after the fall midterm elections.Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said he received assurances from the White House during the week-end that Trump was still 100 percent behind us.Ž But the fate of the bill remains in doubt and it remains unclear if House Republicans could pass a narrower version that would only address the separation of children and their families.Confusion has lingered over Trumps border policy, meanwhile. After a public uproar over the zero toleranceŽ policy that led to more than 2,300 immigrant children being separated from their families near the Mexican border, the president signed an executive order last week for the children to be brought back together with their families. The order seeks to keep fami-lies together in detention instead of separating them while their legal cases are heard by the courts.A 1997 landmark case known as the Flores settlement governs how children are handled in immigration custody and generally prevents the government from keeping them in detention, even with their parents, for more than 20 days. Trump is seeking to amend the agreement to allow for families to be detained indefinitely together. But Justice Department has said the 20-day policy remains in effect until Congress or the courts take action to change that.That means if Congress fails to pass legislation or the courts decline to change the terms of the settlement, the adminis-tration could be forced to again separate the immi-grant children from their parents in three weeks.In the meantime, officials have issued conflicting signals over the state of the adminis-trations policy and some parents have said they dont yet know where there children are.Trump tweeted Sunday that the U.S. cannot allow all of these people to invade our Country.Ž He said when someone attempts to enter the country illegally, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came. Our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and Law and Order.ŽThe American Civil Liberties Union said that is both illegal and unconstitutional.Trump also continued to blame Democrats in the Republican-con-trolled Congress, urging them to fix the laws. Dont RESIST.ŽBut Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., a frequent Trump critic, said the problem was larger than a partisan fight.When the president says that and calls them clowns and losers, how does he expect the Dem-ocrats to sit down and work with Republicans on these issues? And so words matter. What the president says matters. And he ought to knock that off,Ž Flake said.Paul Light, a professor of public service at New York University, said the federal government is not the agile instrumentŽ for policy that Trump seems to think it is.Its very difficult to make a U-turn, then make another U-turn,Ž Light said, adding thats exactly what Trump did last week in signing the executive order after he and other administration had insisted for days that their hands were tied and that only Congress had the power to step in and do something.He sees decisions like ordering at McDonalds. You order, it comes, good-bye,Ž Light said. Thats not the way gov-ernment works.ŽCorker spoke on CBS Face the Nation,Ž McCaul spoke on Fox News SundayŽ and Flake appeared on ABCs This Week.Ž TRUMPFrom Page A1

A6 Monday, June 25, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comfor decades.A new state law estab-lishes a process for counties to grant whats called cus-tomary useŽ access to otherwise privately owned beaches. It goes into effect July 1, when beaches will be crowded in this area between Pensacola and Panama City Beach. Long known as the Redneck Riv-iera,Ž this stretch of the Gulf Coast has been an estab-lished tourist destination for working-class Southerners. More recently, however, it has captured the interest of wealthy visitors who have built multi-million dollar beach homes.Democratic state Rep. Katie Edwards-Walpole said she sponsored the bill to end legal disputes between local governments and property owners „ not restrict beach access.I love our state and travel quite extensively,Ž Edwards-Walpole said. Beach access is a big part of that. The last thing I want to do is restrict my access to beachfront property.ŽThe new law wont change the current rights people have to the beach „ except in Walton County.Unlike two Atlantic Coast counties with similar beach-access ordinances, Walton Countys ordinance doesnt follow the requirements of the new law. The county didnt seek court approval before implementing its ordinance and it gave blanket access to all beaches instead of identifying specific parcels of private lands. That why it will become void.Now Walton County is gearing up for more fights.Its pretty scary,Ž said Theresa Barrett as she prepared to go to one of the countys public beaches. She said there will be more con-flicts between local residents and tourists will be driven elsewhere.Its going to affect busi-ness, its going to affect property values,Ž said Barrett, who owns a boutique. Theyll definitely go elsewhere. Youve got a whole strip of beach in Panama City Beach, youve got St. George Island and all that where they can just pick up and go to those places where they can sit on the beach in peace.ŽBut Bill Hackmeyer and other property owners also want to enjoy their beach in peace, and they say their property values will be affected if anyone can take advantage of the space many paid millions to have to themselves.Standing on the balcony of his $3.6 million home, Hackmeyer pointed at two people with a beach umbrella among homeowners and renters along the 1,000-foot stretch of beach in front of his gated community.Those people are outsiders. Im pretty sure, but I cant do anything about it until July the first. Theyre trespassing,Ž Hackmeyer said.Hackmeyer has already posted signs on the beach notifying visitors that the Viscaya stretch is private property and violators will be trespassing. Folks can walk along the waterline, or at low tide can stake their claim to sand that was wet a few hours earlier, but Hack-meyer plans to ask people to leave the associations beach.If we dont reject them, our beach is not going to be our beach. Weve paid a lot of money for it, but its going to be the publics,Ž he said. Once anybody or everybody comes on the beach, whether you like them or not, its not exclusive, and property values are based on exclusivity.ŽRauschkolb, who has traveled the world to enjoy the ocean, is one of the more vocal Walton County residents fighting for beach access for all. Hes proposed ideas to bridge the dispute, including a beach ambassador program that would help educate people about beach rules.But the issue isnt going away soon. Walton County commissioners refused to be interviewed for this article, but did issue a press release saying theyre going to follow the new law in an effort to give beach access to all.Hackmeyer is getting ready to fight Walton County again.Those people are totally hell-bent on taking private beaches,Ž he said, sipping coffee from a God Loves Republicans cup. If you let Walton County confiscate private property, we become like Venezuela and Cuba.Ž BEACHFrom Page A1to clean up the springs,Ž said Bob Palmer, chairman of the Springs Councils legislative committee. We know that the reductions theyre saying are needed to reduce (the nitrogen) at the spring vents are inadequate.ŽThe groups dispute the way the state calculates the movement of nitrogen from the surface of the ground, for example in fertilizer or a septic tank drain field, through the aquifer and into the water that flows out of springs.The department defended its plans„ called basin management action plansŽ „ last week and intends to meet the June 30 deadline to adopt them, which was put into place by legislators two years ago.While its a monumen-tal milestone, its one were prepared to hit,Ž said Drew Bartlett, the departments deputy secretary for eco-system restoration.State Sen. David Simmons, R-Altamonte Springs, who represents Southwest Volusia County, co-authored the 2016 leg-islation, dubbed the Florida Springs and Aquifer Protection Act. It required the department to designate outstanding Florida springs,Ž review the status of 30 springs to see if they were impaired and then to approve action plans if they were. In Volusia County, Blue Spring, DeLeon Springs and Gemini Springs are des-ignated outstanding springs and declared impaired.Statewide, 24 of the 30 springs reviewed were declared impaired because of high levels of nitrogen in the water. Too much nitrogen in the springs fuels algae growth that smothers underwater plants and can leave spring runs awash in green slime. While nitrogen is naturally occurring, the presence of human waste, fertilizer on lawns and farms and other humanrelated activities increase the nitrates that wind up in spring water.The only springs that werent considered impaired after the departments review were in remote area such as the Ocala National Forest or small rural coun-ties in North Florida, Bartlett said. Ultimately, the depart-ment developed 13 basin action plans, with some that address more than one spring.The plans have identified the sources and are putting in place specific projects,Ž said Bartlett. There are a number of projects„ stormwater projects, septic projects and agriculture projects „ that are specifically adopted in the (basin management action plans) that will achieve reduc-tions toward whats needed to meet the water quality standard.ŽTheyre also adding programs to reduce pollution from septic, fertilizer and wastewater treatment plants, Bartlett said. The departments stated focus is to require reductions across the landscape for all sources in order to achieve the reductions necessary at the spring vent.ŽThe department con-ducted more than 80 public meetings across the state and shared the draft plans and accepted public comments. But throughout the process, advocacy groups have raised concerns, including questioning whether meetings were adequately noticed in advance and about the accessibility to supporting documents. The groups also say the projects arent spe-cific enough and many have not yet been funded.In his letter to the state, Clay Henderson, executive director of Stetson Univer-sitys water institute, said the states proposal doesnt identify a financially feasible plan for reducing nitrogen, failed to identify specific projects to replace septic tanks, and significantly exaggeratedŽ the benefits of the projects proposed to reduce nitrogen.The groups say the amount of nitrogen the department wants to see reduced at the ground level is far short of whats needed to meet the targets for the water flowing out of the springs.Volusia County pointed it out, Stetson pointed it out, and people in other groups pointed it out,Ž said Palmer. Some of the concerns are math, some are simply the law requires them to address X, Y and Z and theyre not addressing X, Y and Z.ŽThe groups also cited typographical errors and mislabeling on documents.Despite concerns in her letter to the department, Ginger Adair, the countys environmental management director said she thinks the state is going to do the best they can in the time they have.ŽThe plans are intended to be dynamic,Ž Adair said. As long as we have the opportunity to make corrections as the science improves, at least were doing good things in the meantime.ŽAs it is, some of the proposed projects are going to be hugely expensive,Ž she said, and arent yet funded. Adair said she hopes the state and the water management district will continue to partner with the county to pay for some of the projects such as a multi-million dollar septic tank replacement proposal.The state is reviewing all the comments it received and is making adjustments to the draft plans where nec-essary, Bartlett said.The department used research conducted by the University of Florida and the water management dis-tricts and others, to look at how actions taken on the surface would be reflected in water flowing from the springs, he said. When we calculate benefits, we have to root them in science. The science we used is reflected directly in the basin man-agement action plans.ŽDepartment officials said the plans are reviewed each year and formally updated every five years. Changes can be made as the department continues to understand more about the relationship between the springs and the pollutant sources, Bartlett said. Its not like we dont touch any of them again.ŽBut the environmental advocates arent sure they want to wait five years, Palmer said. If they dont change, and (the plans) still have these various prob-lems, then these groups are going to have to look at this and say what are our pros-pects of bringing a challenge, or winning a challenge.Ž SPRINGSFrom Page A1rules in the wake of the Florida high school shooting in February.We should all be con-cerned if banks like yours seek to replace legislators and policy makers and attempt to manage social policy by limiting access to credit,Ž Crapo wrote to Citigroups chief executive. Honor Defense is a small oper-ation with a handful of employees that include Rameys son and his wife who work out of a non-descript building in a Georgia office park north of Atlanta. In 2016, its first year, it sold 7,500 firearms. Its prod-ucts „ handcrafted 9mm handguns that come in a variety of colors „ can now be found in more than 1,000 stores.When Ramey noticed that neither Stripe nor Intuit would process payments through his site, he submitted a complaint with Georgias attorney generals office, counting on help from a state law that prohibits discrimination by finan-cial service firms against the gun industry. But the state rejected it, saying that credit card process-ing is not considered a financial service under state law.He views the credit card issue as companies infusing politics into business.ŽWere just a small company trying to survive here,Ž Ramey said. Its hard enough competing with Smith & Wesson, Ruger and Sig Sauer.ŽThe financial industry actions came amid a broader pushback by corporate America in the aftermath of the Florida shooting. Delta and United Airlines stopped offering discounted fares to NRA members, as did the Hertz, Alamo and National rental car companies. First National Bank of Omaha, one of the nations larg-est privately held banks, decided not to renew a co-branded Visa credit card with the NRA.Walmart and Dicks Sporting Goods both decided they would no longer sell assault weaponsŽ or firearms to people under age 21. REI, an outdoor-gear shop that doesnt sell firearms, joined in and decided it would stop selling such items as ski goggles, water bottles and bike helmets made by companies whose parent firm, Vista Outdoor, manufactures ammunition and AR-style long guns.Theres been election-year response from some lawmakers, notably in Georgia where Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, who is running for governor, led a move in the Legislature to kill a tax break on jet fuel to punish Atlanta-based Delta over its NRA actions. The move cost the airline an estimated $40 million.Gun-control advocates have applauded the efforts, saying it demonstrates respon-sible leadership at a time of paralysis in government. Experts say its a sign that the business world views wading into the gun debate as not at all risky „ and, in fact, potentially beneficial to their brand.Companies by and large avoid these issues like the plague and they only get involved „ whether theyre credit card companies or airlines „ when they feel like doing nothing is as bad as doing something and they feel completely stuck,Ž said Timothy D. Lytton, professor at Georgia State Universi-tys College of Law and author of Suing the Gun Industry: A Battle at the Crossroads of Gun Control and Mass Torts.ŽThe gun industry acknowledges that theres nothing requiring companies from doing business with gun man-ufacturers or dealers. Monthly reports from the federal government show background checks to purchase a firearm are up over last year so far, so the early actions apparently have not put a dent in sales.Still, the industry believes it needs stron-ger laws against financial retaliation in the future.

DailyCommercial.com | Monday, June 25, 2018 A7By Meg KinnardThe Associated PressCOLUMBIA, S.C. „ President Donald Trumps effort to bend the Republican Party to his will faces its next test Tuesday, when South Carolina voters choose between two GOP gubernatorial candidates who both claim to be Trump acolytes.The president has already made his pick: incumbent Gov. Henry McMaster, a longtime Trump supporter who failed to win the GOP primary outright earlier this month. McMaster is waging a runoff campaign against businessman John Warren, a first-time polit-ico who some see as more like Trump himself.Like so much in Trumps world, the race is coming down to a question of loyalty. The White House is throwing everything at its disposal into the race to save McMaster, who went out on a political limb for Trump at a crucial point in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries. Trump issued several tweets over the past week praising the governor and noting his loyalty. He dispatched Vice President Mike Pence to the state on Saturday. The presi-dent himself will stump for McMaster on Monday afternoon in West Colum-bia. Loyalty to Trump is on the minds of South Carolinians as well. Voters in the states coastal region surprised many political observers this month when they ousted Rep. Mark Sanford, a reliable conservative, but someone who criticized Trump. That cri-tique had prompted Trump to endorse the congress-mans opponent, who won the race.When voters in South Carolina return to the polls Tuesday, theyll be deciding in part which is more meaningful: a Trump endorsement, or a candidate who embodies some of Trumps outsider credentials.I think that if anyone supported Donald Trump and they look and truly give an honest assessment of whose resume and whose background is more similar to Donald Trump, they will side with me,Ž Warren told The Associated Press in a recent interview. It is clear Im an outsider. I am a businessman. Im a conservative. The establishment doesnt want me to get elected.ŽWith all the attention coming from the White House, Winthrop Univer-sity political scientist Scott Huffmon said its impossible for voters to ignore the factor that the president could play in the race.Trumps obviously floating around over all of this. You have one candidate endorsed by Trump, but hes the consummate insider. But then you have a Trump-like candidate,Ž Huffmon said. When you have Trumps endorsement, but youre running against someone who is very Trump-like, youve got to switch gears and figure out the way you can undermine them.ŽSouth Carolina went sol-idly for Trump in 2016 and remains solid Republican territory. The winner on Tuesday will face Democrat James Smith in the general election.Trump has been stung in some other races into which hes waded. In Alabamas GOP Senate primary last year, the president origi-nally supported Sen. Luther Strange, who lost the nod to Roy Moore. Trump then stuck with Moore in the general election, even after he was hit with multiple allegations of sexual mis-conduct. Moore lost the race to Democrat Doug Jones. In a Pennsylvania district Trump carried in 2016 by 20 points, Republican Rick Saccone won Trumps endorsement, but lost to Democrat Conor Lamb by a razor-thin margin.But Trump is exuding confidence following his successful endorsement this month of state Rep. Katie Arrington in race against Sanford. The president took another victory lap last week, calling Sanford a nasty guyŽ in a closeddoor GOP conference meeting.Trumps unlikely relationship with McMaster began during the 2016 GOP primaries. McMaster, the lieutenant governor at the time who was seen as an establishment figure, initially backed fellow South Carolinian Lindsey Grahams short-lived candidacy. After it folded, McMaster has said he fielded calls from many other GOP White House hopefuls before settling on putting his support behind Trump.Hes a man of action,Ž McMaster said at the time. He speaks in words that everybody understands. Its a delightful thing to see.ŽThat support marked a significant divide between McMaster and then-Gov. Nikki Haley, who had been vocal in her opposition to some of Trumps rhetoric, including a temporary ban on immigrants from some Muslim countries. Haley backed Marco Rubio and then Ted Cruz, only settling on Trump when he became the GOP nominee.Just weeks after his election, Trump selected Haley seen as a rising GOP star as his ambassador to the United Nations. Her departure cleared the way for McMaster in early 2017 to ascend to the governorship he had sought since losing a bruising primary to none other than Haley seven years earlier.Trump to test his powers in South Carolina runo Gov.

Box 490007, Leesburg, FL 34749-0007 Email: letters@dailycommercial.com Fax: 352-365-1951 Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a Florida Republican, is no bomb-thrower or name-caller. But when President Donald Trump last week said immigrants would "infest" the United States, she called the comment "repugnant, reprehensible and repulsive." We also try not to toss insults around. We believe in civil discourse and in trying to understand the other side's point of view. But when it comes to tearing children away from their parents at the southern border, there is only one legitimate side. Trump's policy for the past weeks has been repugnant, reprehensible and repulsive. We don't casually use the word "lie," either. But Trump and his secretary of homeland security, Kirstjen Nielsen, have been lying about the crisis at the border. It began April 6, when Attorney General Jeff Sessions declared an immediate "zero-tolerance" policy for everyone crossing illegally from Mexico. At any moment, Trump had it within his power to reverse that policy. Yet the administration maintained that it was powerless, that Democrats were at fault and that only an act of Congress could keep families together. Faced with so much public opposition that Republicans were fearing for their midterm election prospects, Trump took all that back. On Wednesday, he signed an executive order that he says will ensure families remain unified. If this does not just become another way of stockpiling migrants and if the administration implements the order competently and humanely, it will be an improvement. But all the damage can't be undone, and certainly all the lessons shouldn't be unlearned. The zero-tolerance policy was implemented so chaotically, with so little forethought, that one former U.S. immigration chief warned that some parents may never find their children again. Even for those who are reunited, the trauma will cause lasting harm to some. Nor will the injury to America's reputation abroad be easily repaired. If this episode of barbarism really is coming to an end, we should take heart that the American people rallied to the side of civilization, and that they could still make their voice heard through Congress. Reporters did the job they are meant to do, dispatching stories in audio, video, photo and written form, and Americans understood that „ whatever the complexities of immigration law and immigration reform „ this was wrong. Some officials and politicians understood that, too, and some did not. It will be important to remember which was which. It's important to note that as he promised on Wednesday to reverse his policy of breaking families apart, Trump and his administration continued to trade in larger untruths about immigration in order to dehumanize and spread fear. In fact, immigration rates are not soaring. In fact, dangerous criminals are not streaming in from the Middle East. In fact, immigrants „ legal and illegal „ commit crime at a lower rate than native-born Americans In fact, most immigrants are doing what they have always done: helping to build up America and secure a better life for their children. A more honorable president would respect their hard work and humanity. The Washington PostANOTHER OPINIONLearn from episode of barbarism ANOTHER OPINION Before your child goes into a friends house this summer, the American Academy of Pediatrics wants you to ask whether any unlocked guns are present. The group of 66,000 pediatric specialists designated Thursday as ASK (Asking Saves Kids) Day, in an attempt to curb gun injuries and deaths, which happen at an alarming rate in the United States. An average of 12 people age 21 and younger are killed each day by a firearm, and an average of 66 people age 21 and younger are injured. The ASK Day campaign recommends the following: If your child is going to a home where he or she hasnt been before, ask if there is a gun in that home. If the answer is yes, ask how the gun is stored. It should be stored in a locked location and unloaded, and ammunition should be locked up separately. If you are not comfortable with the answers, invite the other child to play at your house instead. About a third of all Americans with children under 18 at home have a gun in their household, according to the non-partisan Pew Research Center. If there are unsecured guns in the house, you cant assume your child wont find them or wont touch them,Ž Colleen Kraft, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics said in a statement. Young children are naturally curious and are often unable to remember or follow safety rules. Adolescents can be impulsive. When these characteristics are combined with access to firearms, the consequences can be tragic and permanent. Asking this simple question is there an unsecured gun in your home is an important step every parent can take to help their kids stay safe.Ž Simple question, not always easy to deliver. Dear Abby was heavily criticized last summer for her response to a letter-writer wondering whether and how to approach the topic. Where do I draw the line?Ž First-time Mom in New Jersey asked. Do I ask everyone whose house Ill be going to whether or not they have guns? What are the appropriate questions? Do I ask where they are stored and who has access? What else should I ask? Or should I mind my own business?Ž Abby recommended the latter. If you start asking other parents whether they have guns in their homes and how they store them, your questions may be off-putting,Ž she wrote. Because you are concerned for your childs safety, why not offer to have the kids visit your house for play dates?Ž After gun safety advocates flooded her inbox and social media pages, Abby reversed course and posted a clarification on Facebook and Twitter. I should have advised, You are responsible for your childs welfare. Part of assuring that your daughter will be safe involves asking whether there are weapons on the premises and, if so, what safety precautions have been taken,Ž she wrote. If anyone feels your concern for your childs safety is presumptuous, do not allow your child to go there.Ž ASK Day, ideally, gets more and more parents on board. After all, the more frequent the question becomes, the less awkward it will feel to say or hear it. If your child has a peanut allergy, you dont hesitate to ask other parents not to expose him or her to peanuts. Its not a question of etiquette, its a question of life or death. Guns are, to state the extremely obvious, a more politically charged topic than peanuts. But that shouldnt stop us from asking the AAPs recommended questions. Your job as a parent isnt to judge every other parents approach to controversial issues, but your job is to keep your child as protected as possible from harm. Simple as that. Heidi Stevens wrote this for the Chicago Tribune.ANOTHER OPINIONBefore summer playdates, ask if there are unlocked gunsWhen I read reports that first lady Melania Trump, en route to visit immigrant kids detained at the border, wore a jacket that read I REALLY DONT CARE DO UŽ I thought it was, like, an implication. Not, you know, literal. Turns out the first lady is just tone deaf enough to wear a jacket with those exact words in giant letters on the back, which really seems to highlight superficial concern for the victims of a humanitarian crisis of her husbands manufacture. The first ladys trip to the border comes one day after President Donald Trump signed an executive order ending a practice hed begun about six weeks before, of removing children brought across the border by their parents to holding facilities, and then to foster care or group homes across the country. (Kids already detained seem to be stuck in limbo, with dim prospects of reunification with their parents any time soon.) Melania Trumps spokesperson told a reporter that the jacket, which the first lady did not wear to the actual detention facility, holds no hidden messageŽ; sure, theres really nothing hidden about giant letters. Its outrageous, tone deaf, nearly unbelievable, and will wrest the next 24 hours of news cycle from substantive questions. If the Trump administration were an item of clothing, it would be this jacket. And thats where covering this administration has always been complicated. Trump and his confederates do and say outrageous things constantly, dominating the news with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitts taxpayer-funded trip around D.C. to find luxury hand lotion or Trumps alleged legal shenanigans over alleged Trump ex-lover and exotic dancer Stormy Daniels or pig-ignorant tweeting about, well, everything. Its frivolity that masks substance: The rapid and terrifying changes Trumps administration is making to the structure of the U.S. government, the damage it is dealing to the social safety net, the regulations its slashing, the ethics it has abandoned. But those very excesses, the frivolous ones that seem like distraction, inform the administrations policy moves. That Trump has been willing to damage thousands of children and parents in what was seemingly a game of political chicken aimed at coercing his political opponents to accede to his demands for an unforgiving immigration policy is all of a piece with his petulant tweets. The constant thrum of low-grade lies and the medias earnest scramble to debunk and disprove the most significant, which register not at all with the presidents Fox Newsdependent base (that network still places the entirety of the blame for child separation on Democrats) begins to seem like a tedious exercise, schoolmarm preaching about minutiae whose moment has past. Whats signal and whats noise? No one knows anymore. But while it pains me to rebut a jacket, I think Melania Trumps is wrong. Trump ended the child removal policy because Americans cared a lot about this child separation crisis. We expressed our care publicly and loudly; diligent journalists on the border and in D.C. exposed the conditions children were placed in and held the administration accountable. Constituents showed lawmakers that this was not the time to capitulate to the administrations draconian immigration policy. When we care, we win.

Casey shot 72, Cink 62, Hossler 66 and Holmes 67.Watson also came from six back to win the 2010 event for his first tour title and beat Casey in a playoff in 2015.I feel like this is my home course,Ž Watson said. As soon as they put the schedule up, I sign up for this. I want to come back here. This means so much, not only from the golf side of it, but from the family side. My dad, it was the only time he got to see me win (in 2010).

[ANTONIO CALANNI/ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Greg BeachamThe Associated PressSONOMA, Calif. „ Martin Truex Jr. was running second as the laps dwindled in Sonoma, and crew chief Cole Pearn didnt think they were as fast as Kevin Harvick.Pearn told his team to pre-pare for a pit stop on the 73rd lap, and he told Truex over the radio to bring in the car. It was all trickery.Harvicks crew chief, Rodney Childers, called in his driver for tires and fuel in anticipation of Truexs stop „ but Pearns driver actually stayed out for seven more laps. When Truex finally pitted, he got the fresh tires he needed to blow past Harvick for a sweet victory.I called him off at the last second,Ž Pearn said with a sly smile. As far as he knew, we were pitting. Id like to say were smart enough to use codes, but were not. Wed probably mess it up.ŽTruex won the NASCAR Cup Series race in Sonoma on Sunday because of that clever pit bluff, cruising to his second career victory on the challenging road course.Truex easily held off Harvick for his second win in three weeks and his third victory of the season in his Furniture Row Racing Toyota. Truex led 62 laps and won by a whopping 10.513 seconds.The last 10 laps of the race were easy,Ž Truex said. A little stressful. I was just hoping for no cautions, because I had a big lead. This place is so tricky and so tech-nical, but when you start to take care of your equipment and have time to think, its almost harder. You can overshoot a corner easily.ŽThe defending Cup Series champion didnt make a mistake after he waited to pit until the 81st lap, a full eight laps later than Harvicks Stewart-Haas Racing Ford. With fresh tires, Truex passed Harvick for the lead around the final hairpin turn with 19 laps to go.That was all Cole,Ž Truex said. Ill do whatever he wants to do. Awesome job by him today. ... Honestly, all youre doing is begging, hoping that the caution doesnt come out and hope the engine stays together.Ž Truexs victory in his man-ufacturers title race was the 18th of his career. He earned his second career victory at Sonoma in 2013 for Michael Waltrip Racing, making him the only racer to win twice in the past decade at Sonoma.Cup Series leader Harvick went to the pits shortly after Truex passed him, but never got the caution that would have been necessary for him to catch up. Clint Bowyer fin-ished third and Chase Elliott was fourth.Truex began his racing career as a kid running gokarts on road courses, and those lifelong skills are showing. After winning at Watkins Glen last year and taking Sonoma this year, his three career road course victories are second among active drivers to the four wins on non-oval tracks by Kyle Busch, who finished fifth in Sonoma. I enjoy them,Ž Truex said. I think its fun to do some-thing different.ŽHere are more things to know about the race in wine country:BIGGER WORRIES: Harvick wasnt angry about the pit strategy that probably decided the race. The call was one thing, but I think I was too hard on the car the first couple of stages,Ž Harvick said. The brake pedal was long after qualifying and never really came around during the race. It progres-sively got worse.ŽCANADIAN SCARFACE: Pearn turned heads on pit row even before his strategy deci-sions thanks to a nasty-looking vertical scar running down his forehead. The crew chief said he needed stitches earlier in the week after he got hit in the face by a large corner post while building a treehouse for his family. The blow cut his forehead down to the skull „ but he went home from the hospi-tal and finished the treehouse anyway. I wish I (had been) fighting a bear or a cougar, or something like that,Ž he said.

Coric, who defeated second-seeded Alexander Zverev in the first round, saved two set points in the first set tiebreaker.Federer, who skipped the entire clay-court season for the second year in a row, had been going for his 99th title, one week after taking his 18th grass-court title in Stuttgart.It would have been a record-extending 10th title from his 12th final in Halle. The Swiss great remains two match wins away from matching Jimmy Connors all-time record of 174 victories on grass. LONDONCilic saves match point vs. Djokovic to win “ nalMarin Cilic saved a match point on his way to defeating Novak Djokovic 5-7, 7-6 (4), 6-3 on Sunday as he claimed a second Queens Club title.The top-seeded Croat first won the Wimbledon warmup event in 2012, but was the runner-up in 2013 and also lost to Feliciano Lopez in last years final. Having saved six break points, Djokovic struck with the first chance of his own to clinch a drain-ing 67-minute first set, before a reversal of for-tunes in the second. The 12-time Grand Slam champion wasted an early opportunity to break before Cilic saved a match point at 4-5 and then won six points from 4-1 down in the tiebreaker to level the match. Dongfeng wins around-theworld Volvo Ocean RaceTeam Dongfeng and French skipper Charles Caudrelier made a lastleg navigational gamble pay off to win the Volvo Ocean Race, prevailing in a three-boat sprint to the finish line off the Dutch coast on Sunday to claim victory in the eight-month, 12-port, 45,000-nautical mile regatta.The Chinese boat arrived in The Hague, Netherlands, at 5:22 p.m., about 20 minutes ahead of second-place MAPFRE to win the leg and claim a bonus point for the fastest total circumnavigation of the globe. It was the first leg victory for Dongfeng, which left Gothenburg, Sweden, on Thursday one point behind MAPFRE and Team Brunel in the standings. Caudrelier took the helm of the 72-foot yacht with about 12 nautical miles to go as spectator boats gathered around the red-sailed Dongfeng and escorted it to the finish just offshore. The sailors waited until crossing the line before bursting into cheers.BRONNITSY, RUSSIAMessi birthday marred by Argentinas Cup crisisIn any other context, the gesture would have gone unnoticed: Lionel Messi received birthday greetings from Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli.The best wishes, however, came amid turmoil embroiling Sampaoli and the squad, which is on the brink of elimination from the World Cup in Russia.The captain, who turned 31 on Sunday, arrived to the training field where Sampaoli was waiting to start the session. The coach went up to Messi, giving him a kiss on the cheek and a pat on the back. But then there was no further contact between the two.Argentinas football association was quick to deny media reports about the future of Sampaoli, who was strongly criticized for his tactical approach and the formation he put out in Argentinas humiliating 3-0 loss to Croatia on Thursday.The reports said that Sampaoli would be dis-missed and wouldnt take charge against Nigeria on Tuesday in St. Petersburg for the teams last Group D match.Despite palpable tension between the players and the coach, Argentinas football association president Claudio Tapia indicated Sunday that Sampaoli isnt going anywhere yet. But he didnt clarify what would happen afterward since Sampaoli has a contract that runs through the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The Associated Press

DailyCommercial.com | Monday, June 25, 2018 B3DINGER DINGED: A.J. Allmendinger won the first stage and had dreams of get-ting a rare victory „ until he missed a shift and blew his engine on the 33rd lap. Allmendinger is a standout road course racer, but he made a key mistake. I havent missed a shift on a road course in 10 years,Ž Allmendinger said. It was just me. I was trying to be so patient and so smooth. It was unexpected. Its on me. I let everybody down here.Ž POLE SITTER: Kyle Larson finished 14th after starting on the pole for the second consec-utive year at his home track in his native Northern California. He lost several positions early when he couldnt keep his rear end under control, but managed to keep it together for his second-best finish in five Cup Series races on the Sonoma course. He has never finished better than 12th.RUBBIN AINT ALWAYS RACIN: The Sonoma race featured little of the contact and grinding damage that usu-ally characterizes this 11-turn ordeal. Truexs car had remark-ably little damage, and the races only caution came after All-mendinger blew up. I think the entire field is definitely better (at road racing),Ž the 37-year-old Truex said. Just in general in stock car racing, you come up with more experience on road courses today than I did. All these kids have more experi-ence at it. ... Also here, we didnt have a lot of cautions, and cau-tions breed cautions. Restarts are insane here.Ž NASCARFrom Page B1Race fans tour pit row prior to a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series auto race Sunday in Sonoma, Calif. [AP PHOTO/BEN MARGOT] The Beavers have been on a redemption tour in 2018 with an everyday lineup including all but one player from last year and a pitching staff that returned two weekend starters.Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn is in awe of what the Pac-12s Beavers have accomplished.To win that many ballgames, its almost amazing to me, because I how hard it is to win,Ž he said. We talk about it all the time. How are they doing it? Its not like theyre in Houston where they can just run down the street and grab play-ers. Theyre going all over the place and theyre doing it with kids from their region.ŽThe Razorbacks, previously in Omaha in 2015, have been ascending since going 26-29 and failing to make the NCAA Tournament in 2016. They lost in a regional final last year and now are in position to play for the title.Like Oregon State, Arkansas has many of its key contributors back. The Razorbacks also have two of the best freshmen in the country in third baseman Casey Martin and left fielder Heston Kjerstad, who have combined for 27 home runs.After the 2015 season when we came to Omaha, we were a little bit on our high horse and we might not have worked as hard as we needed to,Ž Carson Shaddy said. Pitching plansArkansas Blaine Knight (13-0) will start Monday, followed by Kacey Murphy (8-5) on Tuesday and Isaiah Camp-bell (5-6) if a game is necessary Wednesday.Casey didnt name a Game 1 starter. Ace Luke Heimlich (16-2) would be coming off four days of rest after not getting out of the third inning in either of his starts in Omaha.Heimlichs appearances at the CWS have drawn reaction on social media but little to none in the stadium, other than support from Beavers fans. Last year, he left the team before the CWS after it was revealed he had pleaded guilty to molesting a young relative when he was 15. The university allowed him to return to the team this year. He served two years of probation and went through a treatment program but denied wrongdo-ing in recent interviews with Sports Illustrated and The New York Times. Two-out tenacityOregon State is batting .449 (35 of 78) with two outs, and 28 of its 47 RBIs have come with two outs. I would prefer that they would start that a little sooner before we get two outs,Ž Casey said. Maybe we can score a few more runs.Ž Another SEC champ?Arkansas could become the fifth Southeastern Conference program to win the national championship since 2009.This is my 16th year in the SEC, and the league was the deepest its been,Ž Van Horn said. You have Mississippi State this close to getting to the championship series and they came in fourth or fifth place in the Western Division. It definitely prepares you for just about anything thats coming your way.Ž Local supportLots of Omaha-area fans are cheering for Van Horn, who was at Nebraska from 1998-2002. Before returning to his alma mater, Van Horn led the Corn-huskers on their best five-year run, including two CWSs.The five years I spent here were huge,Ž he said. I mean, we took that program from basically last place in the Big 12 and every-body kind of thought, Hey, youre just a football school, to very respectable. It was really hard to leave, just because of all the success. And there was only one place I would go, and that was Arkansas.Ž CWSFrom Page B1Oregon States Nick Madrigal (3) slides back to second base on a pickoff-attempt by Mississippi State second baseman Hunter Stovall (13) in the “ rst inning of a College World Series baseball game in Omaha, Neb., on Friday. [AP PHOTO/NATI HARNIK] Still tied on the par-4 18th, Watson hit his tee shot 366 yards, then pitched inside 3 feet, giving caddie Ted Scott a big high-five before taking the lead with the putt.Hitting some of those shots, especially the shot on 18, downwind, it was very difficult, but somehow pulling it offŽ Watson said. And thats what we all try to do on Sundays is pull off the amazing shot.ŽCasey, who shot 65, 67 and 62 to lead the field by four shots coming into Sunday, birdied his opening hole. But he gave that back on the fifth and had backto-back bogeys on 16 and 17 to end any chance he had of catching Watson.The Englishman has finished in the top 20 in eight of his last nine tournaments. He was second here during his first visit in 2015, came in 17th a year later and had a fifth-place finish in Crom-well a year ago.There was a lot of fight in there,Ž Casey said. But, I fought my golf swing all day as you can see coming down the last couple of holes.ŽWatson earned $1.26 mil-lion and a 500 FexEx Cup points, moving him into third place in the standings.Cink tied the best round of the week with a 62 on Sunday. The two-time Travelers Champion came out blazing, opening with three straight birdies and putting up a 29 on the front nine. He was 7-under through 10 and acknowledged thinking about a sub-60 round after making birdie on the 15th.I knew that I needed three birdies to shoot 59. But quickly, I also remembered that the golf tournament was on the line and it would mean a lot more to me to win the Travelers Championship than to shoot a 59.ŽHe bogeyed 16, but finished the round with his 10th birdie.Defending champion Jordan Spieth, who was tied for the lead after the opening round, shot a 69 to finish at 4 under. There hasnt been a repeat champion in Crom-well since Phil Mickelson in 2001 and 2002. Spieth said he was originally planning to take time off until he defends his title at the British Open, but may re-evaluate that as he works on his game.U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka shot a 65 to tie for 19th at 9 under. He said his top priority right now is rest, but said that wont come until after he attends a bachelor party for his best friend next week.I dont feel like I need to play; I feel like my game is in a good spot,Ž he said. I played really well this week, just some stupid mistakes, just mental errors. Thats all it was, lack of focus, low energy. To be honest with you, Im not surprised.ŽQualifier Chase Seiffert shot a 63 on Monday just to make the tournament. He shot a 64 Sunday to finish at 12 under and tie for ninth.Seifferts round included an eagle at the sixth hole that saw him put second shot 301 yards over the green, before holing out from 49 feet away. The 26-year-old former Florida State star also quali-fied last year and tied for 43rd.I feel like my games good enough to be out here fulltime and kind of confirms that with the way Ive been playing this week and last year here as well,Ž he said.Jason Day holed out on 18 from 38 feet, just in front of the greenside bunker to finish at 69 and 11 under.LPGA TOUR: Japanese teenager Nasa Hataoka ran away with the NW Arkansas Championship on Sunday for her “ rst PGA Tour title The 19-year-old Hataoka won by six strokes, closing with an 8-under 63 at Pinnacle Country Club for a tournament-record 21-under 192 total. She broke the mark of 18 under set last year by So Yeon Ryu. Hataoka won twice late last year on the Japan LPGA and has “ nished in the top 10 in “ ve of her last six LPGA Tour stars, including a playof loss last month in the Kingsmill Championship. Hataoka began the round tied with Minjee Lee for the lead. Austin Ernst shot a 65 to “ nish second. Lee and third-ranked Lexi Thompson topped the group at 13 under. PGA TOUR CHAMPIONS: Scott McCarron won the American Family Insurance Championship on Sunday, closing with an 8-under 64 for a one-stroke victory over hometown player Jerry Kelly. The 52-year-old McCarron birdied Nos. 14-16 and parred the “ nal two to hold on for his “ rst victory of the season and seventh in three years on the PGA Tour Champions. He “ nished at 15-under 201 at University Ridge. Kelly shot 65, also parring the “ nal two holes. Fellow Madision player Steve Stricker, the tournament host and “ rst-round leader, had a 65 to tie for third with 2017 champion Fred Couples (67) and Colin Montgomerie (64). Second-round leader Esteban Toledo had a 73 to tie for 24th at 8 under. GOLFFrom Page B1 Not many players get to score a hat trick in a World Cup.ŽKane has scored a tournament-leading five goals at the World Cup in Russia, one more than Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku. He also has 18 for Englands national team, one more than Beckham.Not since the 4-2 victory over Germany in the 1966 final has England scored as many goals at the World Cup.The ruthlessness of the dis-play in the sweltering heat of Nizhny Novgorod showed just how far England has been transformed in the four years since an older, more experienced squad couldnt even manage a win when it exited the World Cup in the group stage.In 2014, England com-plained about the heat in Brazil „ particularly the humidity of the Amazonian jungle in the teams opening loss to Italy.Kane scored two in the opening 2-1 victory over Tunisia, including a header in injury time.The other day we had to go right to the wire and show qualities that were going to be extremely important,Ž Eng-land coach Gareth Southgate said. The only downside was the goal at the end because we talked at halftime about the importance of controlling the group with our goal difference. We missed out on that opportunity but it would be harsh to criticize the play-ers after a day like that, in the heat as well, so we must enjoy the win.ŽNow England is sure of a spot in the round of 16 with a game to spare in Group G. Panama, which offered little resistance, is leaving the tournament early after being eliminated along with Tunisia.Sterner tests await, start-ing with the Thursdays game against Belgium. England and Belgium are level on points and goal difference and will play for first place in the group.England showed it wasnt only reliant on Kane, who couldnt find the net at the 2016 European Championship. John Stones headed in two goals and Jesse Lingard curled in another.In Russia, England has been trying to cast aside the negativity of the past while remolding the image of the team on and off the field. Even locals were supporting the team in Nizhny Novgorod, despite the bitter diplomatic relations between Russia and Britain.The egos who dominated in Englands celebrityobsessed, underperforming Golden Generation in the first decade of century have gone. The joy and togetherness in the squad „ the second-youngest in Russia „ becomes clear in the goal celebrations. Where past England teams might have wilted in warm temperatures, this one pressed with high-tempo intensity to ensure there was no need to scrape a victory like on Monday against Tunisia.England picked up where it left off in Volgograd, with a corner from Kieran Trippier headed into the net in the eighth minute. It wasnt Kane on the end this time but Stones, who was left unmarked to score his first international goal.Kane didnt have to wait long to add to his tally, converting from the penalty spot in the 22nd after Lingard was brought down by Fidel Escobar.Lingard did get on the scoresheet in the 36th with the pick of the goals. The Manchester United forward played a 1-2 with Ashley Young and exchanged passes with Raheem Sterling before shifting the ball across and bending it into the top corner.The fourth goal was the culmination of a well-worked free kick with Sterlings close-range header parried by goalkeeper Jaime Penedo. Stones was primed to follow-up, giving the defender his second.However much they tried, Panama struggled to block Englands route to goal. Anibal Gody resorted to trying to wrestle Kane to the ground, only to concede a penalty that was converted by the Tottenham striker.England was merciless. At 5-0, the job was complete by halftime.I said Look, I am starting to feel scared. We cant actually try to equalize. We cant even reduce this distance. All we can do is try to stop England so they cant score more goals,Ž Panama coach Hernan Gomez said. We were feeling rather frightened.ŽChasing the golden boot, Kane relied on his heel to complete his hat trick by get-ting the faintest of touches to divert Ruben Loftus-Cheeks shot into the net. England completed 25 passes in the buildup, the most in any World Cup match since 1966, according to Opta.England could afford to ease up and preserve energy but it cost the team first place on goal difference. Felipe Baloy slid to meet Ricardo Avilas free kick and score Panamas first World Cup goal. SENEGAL 2, JAPAN 2: Senegal twice took the lead. Japan tied it up both times. Keisuke Honda came off the bench and scored from close range in the 78th minute to give the Japanese a 2-2 draw with Senegal on Sunday at the World Cup. The draw keeps the two teams at the top of Group H ahead of their “ nal matches. Sadio Mane gave Senegal the lead in the 11th minute, de” ecting the ball into the net for his “ rst World Cup goal, but Takashi Inui equalized with a well-placed shot from inside the area in the 34th. Moussa Wague restored Senegals lead in the 71st minute. Honda came on the “ eld a minute later and evened the score. In their “ nal group games on Thursday, Senegal will face Colombia in Samara while Japan plays Poland in Volgograd. COLOMBIA 3, POLAND 0: Radamel Falcaos “ rst World Cup goal led Colombia to a victory over Poland and kept the team in the running for a spot in the knockout round. Poland was eliminated. Falcao, who missed the 2014 World Cup because of a knee injury, made it 2-0 with a 70th-minute goal. Yerry Mina scored in the 40th and Juan Cuadrado completed the win in the 75th. Both teams lost Group H openers and knew another loss would end their hopes of advancing. Senegal and Japan drew 2-2 in the other group match and lead with four points each. WORLD CUPFrom Page B1

Call Classieds Today!352-314-FAST (3278) HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR MONDAY, JUNE 25, 2018:This year you might not realize the power of your creativity. You will make your goals and desires happen because of this gift. If you are single, your desirability draws in many different types of suitors. The person you choose could be more signicant to your life than you realize. If you are attached, the two of you cant seem to get enough of each other. Your closeness becomes a high priority. SAGITTARIUS seems to always be questioning your decisions.ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) A tendency to be overindulgent emerges. You enjoy spending money, but you will need to rein yourself in. You know how much better you feel about the wilder moments if you can hold yourself back. News might be contrary, but still could be exciting. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) In order to accomplish what you desire, one-on-one relating is necessary. You will nd that a friend reveals a whole new side of his or her personality. Take in all the information that is being released. An issue involving property becomes a high priority. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) You might not intend to get all the attention today, but somehow you do. Honor a fast change of pace. As a result, you are likely to feel more accomplished. Be more forthright with how you handle a close friend or loved one. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Be more in tune with what is happening around you. Your ability to get past a problem marks your day. As a result, others see that the same path might work for them. Your ingenuity soars as well as your responsiveness to others. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Allow your creativity to open up, especially in a discussion with a family member. Your feelings are close to the surface, and you might have difculty verbalizing them in a way that is acceptable to this person. Think carefully before you speak. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Remain anchored, despite an overwhelming amount of incoming calls. You might choose not to reveal everything you know just yet. Your follow-through makes a big difference in the results. Recognize that others know when you are holding back. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Take what is being shared with a grain of salt. Until you know that the other party is anchored in reality, you might nd him or her to be very spacey. Being a bit skeptical is necessary. A friend gives you important feedback. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Take a break and remain condent in your judgment. For the most part, you have been on a winning streak. Still, be aware of issues that surround you and how they might be coloring the moment. Reach out a friend who seems more secure than you.SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) You clearly are in your element. You have a substantial edge on many of the people around you, at least now and tomorrow. Though you are not into one-upmanship, you like coming out a winner. Take news with a grain of a salt. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22JAN. 19) You might feel as if something or someone is off. In essence, what you are feeling is that you are not getting the whole story, but instead several rather sparse facts. You know what questions to ask. Several associates and friends share an earful. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) You will be on top of what is occurring. You also know how to use timing to your advantage. A friend might reveal more than he or she should. You could be dragged into a disagreement that you would prefer not to address. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You might want to rethink an issue that keeps coming up in different forms. You could be exhausted by everything that is going on. Reach out to a friend for feedback. At times, you believe you need to take the lead and head down a different path. DailyCommercial.com | Monday, June 25, 2018 B5 DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been married for 42 years. For the most part, we have had a good marriage. We raised two children, are helping to raise three grandchildren and still enjoy each other's company. I am retiring shortly and looking forward to enjoying it. For years I have anticipated being free to travel the country and see things I didn't have the time to see when I was employed. The problem is, I like the idea of seeing the country via road trip. My wife says she's a "homebody" and doesn't want to be "stuck in the car" for a week. Several friends have suggested I should take my road trips without my wife. I don't really want to do that, and she says that if I did, she would feel deserted. How can I be a good husband and spend time with my wife, and not feel cheated out of something I have wanted to do for so long? -HEADED FOR THE OPEN ROAD DEAR HEADED: I can't help thinking about how many widows would give anything to share an adventure like that with their husband. I also don't think leaving one's spouse for a week qualies as desertion. Many husbands and wives do it regularly to conduct their business. Perhaps if you return from one of your excursions with tales of how beautiful and interesting the road trip was, it will pique her interest. P.S. If the problem is that your vehicle is too small, have you considered renting something larger to give your wife more room to stretch out?DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been together for almost 20 years. With every year that passes, I fall more in love with him. He's a wonderful person who treats me very well. I could go on and on about how caring and considerate he is. However, when it comes to being intimate, I'm just not interested. I have known him for so long and know him so well that, for me, the "spark" is extinguished. In some ways, he almost feels like a brother, which makes it difcult to have sexual feelings. I tell him many times a day that I love him, because I do. I want him to know he's my best friend and I care deeply about him. We have tried role playing, games, sexy clothing, etc. -nothing helps me. I go through the motions when I must, because I know it is one of the ways he expresses his love for me. I don't want to be with anyone else. I just want to know how I can feel excited about being intimate again. Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated. -EXTINGUISHED SPARKS DEAR EXTINGUISHED: My suggestion would be to have a frank talk with your OB/GYN about this, and ask for a referral to an endocrinologist -a doctor who specializes in hormones. If, after a checkup, your hormone balances are what they should be, some sessions with a psychologist for you -and a sex therapist for both of you -might relight the spark that has zzled. It's worth a try.READER ALERT!
