A dissenting liberal justice said the court was making a historic mistake by refusing to recognize the ban discrimi-nates against Muslims.The 5-4 decision was a big victory for Trump in the courts first substantive ruling on one of his adminis-trations policies. It also was the latest demonstration of a newly invigorated conservative majority and a bitter defeat for the courts liberals.The ruling came on an issue that has been central for Trump, from his campaign outbursts against radical Islamic terrorismŽ through his presidency. He tweeted a quick reaction „ Wow!Ž „ and then celebrated at greater length before TV cameras.Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the majority opinion for the five conservative justices, including Trump nominee Neil Gorsuch, who got his seat only after Republicans blocked President Barack Obamas nominee for the last 10 months of Obamas term.Roberts wrote that the travel ban was well within U.S. presidents considerable authority over immigration High court OKs travel ban By Lisa Mascaro and Alan FramThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ House Speaker Paul Ryan scheduled a long-awaited showdown vote on a broad Republican immi-gration bill for Wednesday, but is showing little confidence that the package will survive.Underscoring the legislations weak prospects in his GOP-run chamber, Ryan, R-Wis., declined to answer questions Tuesday about a separate, narrow measure Republicans are privately Ryan sets House vote on billRyan By Frank Stanfieldfrankstanfield@dailycommercial.comTAVARES „ Sheriff Chris Daniels Memorial Highway is a busy portion of State Road 19, stretching from Lane Park Cutoff to U.S. Highway 441.Its fitting, since Daniels was a busy man before he died in a freak accident at a 2006 charity school bus race fun-draiser on his 47th birthday.Maybe the motorists will see the sign with his name, dedicated in a ceremony today with Sheriff Peyton Grinnell, thanks to a law introduced by state legislators Larry Metz and Dennis Baxley.Its just too bad that most of the drivers never got the chance to know him.Sheriff Daniels was an out-standing, forward-thinking leader who cared for his com-munity and this agency,Ž said Sheriffs Lt.

The Associated PressBy Lori Hinnant and Colleen BarryThe Associated PressMILAN „ On both sides of the Atlantic, migrants flood-ing across borders by the hundreds each day have met a hostile reception and gov-ernments unable to agree on how to cope with the arrivals. In Europe, where far-right parties have joined the gov-ernments in Italy and Austria and made gains elsewhere, even the most basic decision of which port would accept a ship filled with migrants has been fraught.On Tuesday, yet another rescue boat loaded with migrants struggled to find safe harbor in the Mediterranean, while in Austria police cadets playing the role of desperate refugees rattled a chain-link fence demanding to be let in as part of a high-profile train-ing exercise to test the mettle of a new border force charged with preventing an influx of migrants.We have had migratory crises in the past, but that is not what we are going through now. What we are living through now is a European political crisis,Ž French President Emmanuel Macron said after a daylong meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican during which they discussed the issue.The European crisis mirrors the one in the United States, where a broad-ranging Republican immigration bill was set for a vote Wednesday, with little certainty that it would survive. With legislation in disarray and a global uproar over the sepa-ration of more than 2,300 migrant children from their parents, the Trump admin-istration abruptly reversed a key element of its zero-toler-ance immigration policy last week, halting the practice of separating immigrant fami-lies caught illegally crossing the border, but leaving more than 2,000 separated children in limbo in govern-ment-contracted shelters.The standoffs in Europe involve multiple govern-ments, all running their own immigration policies but with open borders among them.Twice this month, as calm seas and warm weather spurred greater numbers to set sail, rescue ships filled with migrants have been left in a holding pattern in the Mediterranean. The latest standoff involves the German-operated Lifeline, which has sailed for five days without safe harbor. France, Portugal, Italy and at least one other country agreed to divide up the migrants on board, and said Malta would take in the ship.But the German aid group operating the ship said Malta had sent a message refusing entry into its territorial waters, further confusing an agreement that had taken days to negotiate. Malta also flatly refused to accept an empty rescue ship, the Aquarius, which needed some mechanical work before it could resume its sweeps of the Mediterranean. The ship headed to the French port city of Marseille instead.It was the Aquarius that touched off last weeks showdown, when the ship, operated by French aid groups and carrying 630 migrants, had its journey to land extended by a week after Malta and Italy refused docking rights. Spain ultimately accepted the pas-sengers, and the Aquarius traveled an additional 900 miles to get there.Its five useless days to come here when the Aquar-ius is not on the migrant route to rescue, and thats a shame in terms of saving human lives,Ž Frederic Penard of SOS Mediterranee said in Marseille, where the ship was expected on Friday. Italy, which believes the rescue ships operated by aid groups only encourage more migrants, also refused dock-ing in Sicily.Italys new right-wing interior minister, Matteo Salvini, has contended that the rescue boats essentially provide taxi serviceŽ at sea for the human traffickers.But with calm seas and fair weather, more migrants continued to take their chances crossing from North Africa.Spains Maritime Rescue Service picked up over 400 people from the Mediterra-nean on Monday, bringing the total number of rescued migrants to around 1,800 in just four days. Austrian police stand behind a fence Tuesday as they practice the protection of the border between Slovenia and Austria in Spie lfeld, Austria.

Staff ReportCLERMONT … For the next several weeks, the Clermont Police Depart-ment and Flippers Pizza Restaurant are conducting Hero Deliveries throughout the city.Hero Deliveries is an idea inspired by the Clermont Police Depart-ments Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving Unit (COPPS). It is the second year of the initiative, which is designed to reinforce the concept that Fami-lies that eat together stay together.Ž Shar-ing time together as a family is proven to be one of the most valuable crime-prevention methods,Ž said Officer David Colon of the COPPS unit. We will visit households every other week for the next few months in an effort to spread crimeprevention tips and a positive outlook on life. With our visit, the fami-lies will be able to see a couple of police officers come to their door, and after a short greeting, hand them a crime-pre-vention flyer, and wish them a good dinner as a family, compliments of Flippers Pizza and the Clermont Police Department.ŽThe implementation for Hero Deliveries stems directly from 21st century policing concepts that were outlined in previous presidential task force recommendations. Some of the recommendations focus on communication and transparency through non-enforcement activities.When cops show up at your door, its usually to assist in emergency situations,Ž said Chief Charles Broadway, who will be one of those delivering pizza. This program builds trust and legitimacy between police officers and the people they serve, only this time they are serv-ing in another way. We hope to continue to help facilitate communication and relationships with our residents by breaking down the traditional bar-riers that so often exist between police officers and the citizens that we serve,Ž Broadway added.Police, Flippers team for hero deliveriesBroadway LEESBURGQualifying upcoming for Commission electionsThree seats on the City Commission will be up for grabs in November.

He said many of them moved, but some remained on the beach during the storm.We are very con-cerned for their safety,Ž Routh said of the patrons, who cannot be forced to leave. They have been warned multiple times.ŽSarasota County lifeguards use lightning detectors and receive real-time weather information.Barton was on the beach when lightning struck him, according to Routh.When we were called by dispatch, the call came over as a light-ning strike,Ž Routh said. We had two lifeguards respond in our beach patrol truck. We were notified that CPR is in process. There were two beach patrons apparently giving the patron CPR. They were joined by two of our Sarasota County fire medics.We continued CPR until (Barton was) trans-ported off the beach.ŽBarton was later pronounced dead at an area hospital, according to the Sheriffs Office.Wayne Racine of Maryland said he left Siesta Beach before the storm arrived on Sunday.I started noticing the flags changing and then the lifeguards were trying to get people off the beach,Ž Racine said. There were a couple people back here and trying to move forward (onto the beach). They werent looking up at the sky and seeing the cloud formations.Ž Once the storm began, Racine was in his car and his family, which had been on the beach for two hours, decided to go back to their condo.Once we got there that condo shook,Ž he said. It really rocked.ŽRouth said it was the first time he has responded to a lightning related death in Sara-sota County. The odds of being hit by lightning are 1 in 1,171,000, according to NOAA, who also reports that 4,141 people have been killed nation-wide by lightning since 1959. Only 10 percent of people who were struck were killed, leaving 90 percent with degrees of disability,Ž the NWS says. Lightning-related fatalities averaged 45 from 1988 to 2007, but declined to 27 over the past 10 years. Of the 16 deaths in 2017, 15 of them were men (since 2008, 224 men and 63 women died from light-ning strikes).Routh recommends that beach patrons heed flag warnings from lifeguards even when the skies appear clear. He says visitors should pack light in case they are asked to leave the beach quickly. I know a lot of people are reluctant to leave because they see a sunny sky,Ž Routh said. They dont realize theres something coming from the east. Its not easy clearing the beach when people think they are OK. Sometimes people dont hear the warning.ŽTents and pavilions are not considered safe shelter during an elec-trical storm and lightning travels easily through salt water. Routh said patrons are the tallest point in a very large, open areaŽ if they remain on the beach. He said Sarasota County will review its beach policies to ensure the best beach safety procedures are being followed. SARASOTAFrom Page A3


and responsibility for keeping the nation safe. He rejected the challengers claim of anti-Muslim bias that rested in large part on Trumps own tweets and statements over the past three years.But Roberts was careful not to endorse either Trumps statements about immigration in general or Muslims in particular, including his campaign call for a complete and total shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.ŽWe express no view on the soundness of the policy,Ž Roberts wrote.The travel ban has been fully in place since December, when the justices put the brakes on lower court rulings that had ruled the policy out of bounds and blocked part of it from being enforced. It applies even to people with close relatives in the United States and other strong connections to the country.In a dissent she summarized aloud in court, Justice Sonia Sotomayor said, History will not look kindly on the courts mis-guided decision today, nor should it.Ž Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan also dissented.Sotomayor wrote that based on the evidence in the case a reasonable observer would conclude that the Proclamation was motivated by anti-Muslim animus.Ž She said her colleagues in the majority arrived at the opposite result by ignoring the facts, misconstruing our legal precedent and turning a blind eye to the pain and suffering the Proclamation inflicts upon countless families and individuals, many of whom are United States citizens.ŽShe likened the case to the discredited Korematsu V. U.S. decision that upheld the detention of Japanese-Americans during World War II. Roberts responded in his opinion that Korematsu has nothing to do with this caseŽ and was gravely wrong the day it was decided.ŽThe travel ban was among the courts biggest cases this term and the latest in a string of 5-4 decisions in which the conservative side of the court, bolstered by the addition of Gorsuch last year, prevailed. He was chosen by Trump after Republicans in the Senate refused to grant a hearing to federal appeals Judge Merrick Garland who was nominated by Obama in March 2016.Soon after the ruling, the campaign of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who orchestrated the strategy to keep the high court seat away from Obama, tweeted a photo of McConnell and Gorsuch.The Trump policy applies to travelers from five countries with overwhelmingly Muslim populations „ Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. It also affects two non-Muslim countries, blocking travelers from North Korea and some Venezuelan government officials and their families. A sixth majority Muslim country, Chad, was removed from the list in April after improving its identity-management and information sharing practices,Ž Trump said in a proclamation.The administration had pointed to the Chad decision to show that the restrictions were premised only on national security concerns.The challengers, though, argued that the court could not just ignore all that had happened, beginning with Trumps campaign tweets to prevent the entry of Muslims into the United States. | Wednesday, June 27, 2018 A5having, but he wanted for them to bring with them a proposed solution.

The FEA said that ranks Florida 45th in the nation in pay for teachers and school staff.In a conference call announcing the pledge drive, McCall was joined by several teachers who talked about juggling second jobs to make ends meet.Despite the challenges being a teacher in Florida, I love my job and I love my students,Ž said Brian Ker-ekes, an Osceola County teacher who works part-time at Disney World.Republican Gov. Rick Scott and the GOP-led Legislature approved a state budget five years ago that allowed for at least a $2,500 teacher raise. But that came shortly after Scott and lawmakers forced teachers and other public employees to con-tribute 3 percent of their pay to the states retire-ment system.According to the National Education Association, teacher pay in Florida has declined by 12 percent over the past decade because of inflation. The FEA, a steady sup-porter of Democratic candidates, has a combative relationship with Scott and many Republican leaders. Four of the Democratic candidates for governor already have signed onto the union pledge, along with a handful of the partys candidates for the Legis-lature and other offices.The FEA has its own election battle on its hands, with McCall challenged for the top post by Vice President Fedrick Ingram.

Democrats are expected to solidly oppose that bill, which is a compromise between GOP moderates and conservatives.Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., weighed in from across the Capitol, criticizing Trump for lacking a process for bringing families back together.

A6 Wednesday, June 27, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comBy Mark Sherman and Jessica GreskoThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ The Supreme Court on Tues-day effectively put an end to a California law that forces anti-abortion crisis pregnancy centers to provide information about abortion.The 5-4 ruling also casts doubts on similar laws in Hawaii and Illinois.The California law took effect in 2016. It requires centers that are licensed by the state to tell clients about the availability of contraception, abortion and prenatal care, at little or no cost. Centers that are unlicensed were required to post a sign that said so. The court struck down that portion of the law.The centers said they were singled out and forced to deliver a message with which they disagreed. California said the law was needed to let poor women know all their options.Justice Clarence Thomas, in his majority opinion, said the centers are likely to succeedŽ in their constitutional chal-lenge to the portion of the law involving licensed centers. That means that while the law is currently on the books, its challengers can go back to court to get an order halting its enforcement. An attorney for the challengers said Tuesday that they expect to be able to do that quickly. California had not been enforcing the law, however.California cannot co-opt the licensed facili-ties to deliver its message for it,Ž Thomas wrote for himself, Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Anthony Kennedy, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch. He called the requirement for unlicensed centers unjustified and unduly burdensome.ŽJustice Stephen Breyer said among the reasons the law should be upheld is that the high court has previously upheld state laws requiring doctors to tell women seeking abor-tions about adoption services. After all, the law must be evenhanded,Ž Breyer said in a dissenting opin-ion joined by his liberal colleagues, Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.Attorney General Jeff Sessions and antiabortion groups were among those cheering the decision. The Trump administration had argued that Californias law violates the rights of licensed cen-ters but had no objection to the requirement for the unlicensed centers. Speakers should not be forced by their government to promote a message with which they disagree, and prolife pregnancy centers in California should not be forced to advertise abor-tion and undermine the very reason they exist,Ž Sessions said in a state-ment Tuesday.California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a Democrat, called the decision unfortunateŽ but said our work to ensure that Californians receive accurate information about their healthcare options will continue.ŽThe abortion-rights group NARAL Pro-Choice California was a prime sponsor of the California law. NARAL contends that the centers mislead women about their options and try to pressure them to forgo abortion. Estimates of the number of crisis pregnancy centers in the U.S. run from 2,500 to more than 4,000, compared with fewer than 1,500 abortion providers, womens rights groups said in a Supreme Court filing.NARAL president Ilyse Hogue said in a statement after Tuesdays decision that the Supreme Court had turned its back on women and condoned the deceptive tactics used by fake womens health centers.ŽCalifornias law was challenged by the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates, an organization with ties to 1,500 pregnancy centers nationwide and 140 in California. The group was represented at the Supreme Court by Alliance Defend-ing Freedom, a Christian law firm. NIFLA president Thomas Glessner applauded the courts decision Tuesday. He called the decision monumentalŽ and said it was a great day for pro-life pregnancy centersŽ and for free speech.Other cities and states have also passed laws related to crisis preg-nancy centers. In 2014, a federal appeals court in New York struck down parts of a New York City ordinance, though it upheld the requirement for unlicensed centers to say that they lack a license.Other states have laws that regulate doctors speech in the abortion context. In Louisiana, Texas and Wisconsin, doctors must display a sonogram and describe the fetus to most pregnant women considering an abortion, according to the Guttmacher Institute, which supports abortion rights. Similar laws have been blocked in Kentucky, North Carolina and Oklahoma.High court rules against Calif. lawVisitors depart the Supreme Court early Monday. The justices are expected to hand down decisions this week as the courts term comes to a close. [J. SCOTT APPLEWHITE/AP PHOTO]

Griggs was seated on a toilet fully clothed with a needle in her arm, a sheriffs report states.Griggs overdosed on heroin mixed with fentanyl, Chitwood said. Montilla already is in cus-tody on related charges. He was sentenced May 31 to three years and three months in Florida state prison for drug trafficking and using a communication device to commit a felony.He previously has served prison time for trafficking cocaine and sale, manufacturing or delivery of marijuana.The Sheriffs Office has responded to 31 overdose deaths so far this year, Chit-wood said. That number accounts only for deaths in Deltona, DeBary and areas of the county outside city limits.Unfortunately, Jacqueline has a story that I think has become all too familiar in our society,Ž said Chitwood, noting that Griggs was an international baccalaureate student in high school and had aspirations of becoming an attorney before addiction altered her path.Deputies found several needles, lighters, a spoon, a used pipe and clear plastic baggies containing white powder residue in close proximity to Griggs body, according to the report.Deputies tried to revive Griggs with Narcan nasal spray but she showed no signs of life, the report states.Griggs was the single mother of a 3-year-old girl. The girls father, Dominic Tronolone, to whom Griggs was engaged, died in August 2014. He, too, died of an opioid overdose, Chitwood said.As part of the Sheriffs Offices commitment to treat every overdose death as a homicide,Ž Chitwood said detectives began to text message with our scumbag, murdering drug dealer.ŽPosing as Griggs, investigators texted Montilla stating the h was good. . u got some more I can get later?Ž according to the sheriffs report. Deputies arranged a drug transaction at a Publix on Courtland Boulevard.Montilla arrived at the rendezvous point with a trafficking amount of heroinŽ „ at least 4 grams but less than 14 „ and was arrested.In every case we can, were going to go after these scumbags who are slinging poison on our streets,Ž Chit-wood said. Were going to put them behind bars where they belong, where they cant end the life of another person addicted to their deadly product.ŽCapt. Brian Henderson, commander of investiga-tions at the Sheriffs Office, said the trafficking charge allowed deputies to get Montilla off the street while they compiled a murder case.With Montilla in prison, we know he cant sell any more drugs that lead to more overdose deaths,Ž Hender-son said.The charge against Mon-tilla follows a Flagler County case earlier this year in which a man was charged in an overdose case.In February, Joseph Colon, of Palm Coast, was charged with first-degree murder in the November overdose of 23-year-old Savannah DeAngelis, also of Palm Coast.Colon, who has a history of drug charges dating to 2010, sold DeAngelis hero-ine laced with fentanyl, investigators said.First alleged dealer charged with overdose deathVolusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood shows a picture of drug overdose death victim Jacqueline Griggs during a press conference Monday.

He carried out the mission while lying prone in a shallow ditch.Hours later, as swarms of German forces rushed forward, Conner ordered friendly fire onto his own position, courageously choosing to face death in order to save his battalion and achieve victory for freedom,Ž Trump said. The artillery fire Conner directed is credited with killing 50 German soldiers and wounding 100 more, ultimately repelling the assault.Conner was discharged from the Army in June 1945, and his family battled for the past 22 years with the Armys awards branch and eventually in the courts for the outcome that finally came Tuesday.

PAGE 9 | Wednesday, June 27, 2018 A9 Welcome to the age of the space force. Last week, President Donald Trump directed the Pentagon to create a space force,Ž a sixth branch of the United States Armed Forces. Sure, its possible to create another branch of the military. We can waste billions upon billions of taxpayer dollars to create another group of officers, new commands and additional bureaucracy. But it might be better if we first look at the resources we already have. To be clear, our current branches of the military already have a presence in (and a close eye on) space. Proof of how seriously our military takes the space beyond our atmosphere is all around us, including in our own backyard in Tampa, Jacksonville and the Panhandle, all of which are home to major military installations. The Air Force Space Command already exists. Its headquartered at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado. Its mission is clear: Execute combined global capabilities to defend the homeland and enable space combat operations.Ž And its not just a couple of folks in an office. The Space Wing bills itself as the U.S. Air Forces most geographically dispersed wing,Ž with operations in 22 locations across the world. Those sites include Clear Air Force Station, Alaska; Copenhagen, Denmark; Adelaide, Australia; and Eglin Air Force Base near Pensacola. Thats right, Eglin, right here in Florida. Its home of the 20th Space Control Squadron. And if you thought the Space Wings mission was concise, youll think the 20th Space Control Squadrons mission statement is out of this world. The mission of the 20th Space Control Squadron is to execute multiplatform, tactical space warfighting domain characterization, recognition, and responsiveness to achieve 21st Space Wing and United States Strategic Command intent. 20th SPCS uses a global network of near-earth and deep-space weapons systems to conduct space object identification and provide targetable intelligence in support of space situational awareness and space domain control.Ž Eglins place in this space force is remarkable. The AN/FPS-85 phased array radar at Site C-6 is the only phased array radar dedicated to tracking more than 16,000 near-earth and deep-space objects,Ž according to the Air Force fact sheet. The sheet also says the radar can track an object the size of a basketball at a distance of 22,000 nautical miles. Pardon us for stating the obvious, but that is amazing. The Air Force took ownership of the site in September 1968 and space operations with the radar began in 1969. That means Eglin has been tracking space for nearly 50 years. Not only that, but there are three Ground-Based Electro-Optical Deep Space Surveillance System sites that report directly to Eglin, again here in our home state. These three sites are located in Socorro, N.M.; Diego Garcia, British Indian Ocean Territory; and Maui, Hawaii. America doesnt need a new space force. Its not to say the military shouldnt have one eye beyond our skies, but our government should find a way to bolster and improve the projects and commands already dedicated to this mission before looking to create a whole new branch of the military just yet.OUR OPINIONSpace force is not needed ANOTHER OPINION We remember when Aleppo became a household word. The carnage inflicted on Syrian civilians in that city by their autocratic leader, Bashar Assad „ with help from Russian forces „ ingrained in the worlds collective consciousness the depths a despot will reach to cling to power. Thousands died. Much of the city was razed. Soon, Hodeida, too, may become a household word. Hodeida is the primary port of the broken Middle Eastern nation of Yemen, a country ripped apart by three years of civil war. United Arab Emiratesbacked forces loyal to Yemens exiled government, together with Saudi air power, have launched an offensive to retake Hodeida, now held by Houthi rebels. The Houthis control much of the Arabian Peninsula nation and are wellentrenched in Hodeida. The fighting could drag on for months. The peril isnt confined to the 600,000some Yemenis who live in Hodeida; the metropolis is a lifeline for Yemenis throughout the country. More than three-fourths of Yemens food arrives via the Red Sea port. The United Nations estimates that fighting in Hodeida could inflict mass starvation on as many as 8 million of the countrys 28 million Yemenis. An estimated 50,000 Yemeni children already have died of starvation. More than a million Yemenis are infected with cholera. Yemen is already the worlds worst humanitarian disaster, and the looming battle for Hodeida could make that disaster far worse. Western media havent yet paid extensive attention, so dont feel neglectful if much of this is news to you. But the magnitude of the suffering and a larger geopolitical struggle could raise the profile of the Yemenis and their plight. The war in Yemen has become a proxy conflict pitting Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, both longtime U.S. allies, against Iran, which Riyadh accuses of actively helping the Houthi rebels. The Saudis say Iran has been supplying the missiles Houthi forces are using to strike targets on Saudi territory. Saudi and Emirati fighter jets, meanwhile, have been behind a relentless bombing campaign against Houthi rebels that has killed thousands of Yemeni civilians. The United States is not a bystander in this crisis. Washington provides intelligence, munitions and aerial refueling for Saudi and United Arab Emirates fighter jets. Since taking office, President Donald Trump has sought even closer ties with Riyadh. So it comes as no surprise that the Trump administration has said little about the peril Yemens people face. But the U.S. cant afford to stay silent as the suffering intensifies. If it does, it risks accusations of complicity in the horror unfolding in Yemen. The U.S. already has blood on its hand in the Yemen crisis,Ž The Washington Post quoted U.S. Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., as saying earlier this month. We should not make them even bloodier.Ž The Trump administration has enough sway with the Saudi and Emirati regimes to make the case for a halt to the offensive on Hodeida. If pushy diplomacy doesnt work, the U.S. has another card to play „ shutting down military support that Riyadh and Abu Dhabi need to fight the Houthis. The alternative, allowing this mass starvation to intensify, cannot be an option. From Tribune News ServiceANOTHER OPINIONHow the US should help end a mass starvation in Middle EastHogs „ as in Harley-Davidson motorcycles „ are fleeing the United States, while Wisconsin dairy cows are crossing their legs in anticipation of distress. This is what President Donald Trump's trade war mentality looks like: lots of short-term pain for Midwestern industries. On Monday, Milwaukeebased Harley said it would shift production of motorcycles for the European market from U.S. to overseas plants to escape the pain of retaliatory tariffs. The European Union raised tariffs on Harleys from 6 percent to 31 percent in response to Trump administration tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum. That would increase the cost of every bike sold in Europe by an average of $2.200. Wisconsin dairy farmers and cheesemakers, too, are feeling pinched by retaliatory tariffs, these imposed by Mexico as a ripple effect of a steel and aluminum fight. The dairy industry also is vulnerable to attempts by European countries to steal its customers as Trump wages trade battles. The Europeans want to cut deals with dairy-importing nations decreeing that only salty goat's milk cheese exported from Greece can be marketed as "feta," or only hard cheese from Parma, Italy, could be marketed as "parmesan." Where would that leave the dairy farmers of Wisconsin? With weaker branding, weaker exports and uncomfortable cows. "I could see us getting to the point where we're dumping our milk in the fields," Jeff Schwager, president of Sartori, a Wisconsin cheese producer, told The New York Times. We'll find out if Trump's tough talk on tariffs is worth the cost in the long run; maybe some nations will cut their customary duties on goods imported from the U.S. Our view is that free and undisrupted trade, not protectionism, is the path to greater prosperity for Americans. The global economy is here to stay, creating an enormous, growing market for U.S. goods. On the flip side, American consumers and businesses benefit from gaining access to the best and least-expensive exports from abroad. It's a classic win-win. But Trump's skeptical. His first impulse is to kill trade agreements, which is what he did with the Trans-Pacific Partnership, an agreement with 11 other countries that Trump abandoned. He's also threatened to leave NAFTA if that agreement isn't renegotiated to his liking. The fight over steel and aluminum is causing the biggest ruckus because it has incited China to threaten retaliation at potential great cost to Midwest manufacturers and farmers. Trump says he trying to fix unfair trade deals that destroy American jobs, but his attempts to bully foreign countries have invited retribution. China's targets include soybeans, which are grown in Illinois and shipped down the Mississippi for export to Asia. Trump ran for the presidency claiming he could save existing jobs at U.S. factories. But it was always more a sales pitch than a strategy, exemplified by the fact that he ignored details of the fast-moving, interdependent nature of the global economy. Trump worries a lot about trade deficits with other specific countries, yet such narrowly calibrated statistics don't reflect the overall scope of trade and investment flows. For example, the president has called out foreign automakers for scorn, without acknowledging that companies like BMW and Toyota produce many of their vehicles in the U.S., while Ford and GM have assembly lines in Mexico. One more point, about an industry we know well: The Trump administration, as we've written, has slapped costly tariffs on Canadian newsprint in order to protect one U.S. paper producer. That decision is costing U.S. newspaper publishers millions of dollars. It's another example of the president's literal-minded take on a dynamic issue. Trade deals should be fair, of course. And, yes, disagreements are inevitable. We hope all these conflicts can be sorted out. But there should be no turning from globalization. The benefits are too great, and the U.S., as the richest, most flexible economy in the world, is in a position to win. Why does the president seem afraid to compete?

The menu offers Asian and Mexican choices, a full bar, entertainment and sweeping views of Lake Dora. Scott and Sherie Dunlap said theyve become regular diners since it opened and often bring groups of friends. They credit the food, environment and entertainment for bringing them back. And, not just a place to enjoy dinner, they usually come when theres entertainment and they can dance. The Asian hot pot is a favorite when they visit. I never had it before and Im hooked,Ž Scott Dunlap said. Its healthy, light and very tasty.Ž The Asian hot pot is one of the featured trends in McCormicks Flavor Forecast 2018. The hot pot with a seasoned chicken broth is brought to the table and put on a burner. Youre delivered a platter of vegetables and your choice of meat and seafood. Once the pot is boiling, add the food (theres a divided pot for those that have specific requirements, such as allergies or vegans). While the food cooks, theres time to relax and socialize. When youre ready fill your plate or when the pot gets low, add more so the food is always hot. Because of the size of the platters, the hot pot is for two or more diners. For the main dish, choose your meat or seafood or skip the meat and go vegetarian. General manager Crystal Stewart said the most popular dishes are the sweet and sour chicken and the hot pot. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating for 150, she said. In the winter, a wall of glass slides back to create an open-air restaurant.

B2 Wednesday, June 27, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comVegetarian means a different thing today than it did when I was growing up. Today when we speak of vegetarians, we think of a special group of people that follows a precise diet plan. When I was young, we enjoyed vegetables as a simple way of life. There was seldom a day when Mother didnt cook vegetables. My mouth waters when I think of her wonderful fresh green beans cooked with some small red potatoes. I also liked fried okra (Tommy Bishop and I always wanted okra that rattlesŽ) and tomatoes (yes, I know tomatoes are really fruit, but to me they are much better served as a vegetable), and dont forget a thick slice of Vidalia onion to complete the meal. Now take a look at a young persons plate. How many veggies do you see? Not many. You probably see potatoes (more than likely french fries). They need to learn to appreciate the better foods on the table „ vegetables of all kinds. Vegetarian Chili€ 1 tablespoon oil € cup chopped green bell pepper € cup chopped onion € 1 can (14.5 oz.) Mexican stewed tomatoes € 1 zucchini diced, do not peel € 1 yellow squash, diced € 1 tablespoon chili powder € 1 teaspoon sugar € teaspoon salt or to taste € 1 can vegetable broth (about 2 cups) € 1 (16 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed € 1 (11 oz.) can whole kernel corn € 1 (16 oz.) pinto beans, drained and rinsed € 2 tablespoons margarine € teaspoon Tabasco (or to taste) € Shredded Mexican cheese (to sprinkle over top) € Tortilla chips Heat oil in large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add bell pepper and onions. Cook until tender, but not browned. Add tomatoes and cook about 3 minutes. Add zucchini, yellow squash, chili powder, sugar and salt. Cook about 1 minute. Add remaining ingredients and simmer uncovered about 15 minutes. If chili gets too thick, add more water or broth. Serve as suggested.IN THE KITCHENYou dont need meat to have a complete mealBy Ari LeVauxMore Content NowGarlic with pea shoots is a combination worth exploring. Its hardly a secret, especially in Asia where pea greens are widely consumed. In many regions, peas are sown throughout the summer specifically for their greens, every week or so like American farmers plant lettuce. A simple, heaping pile of pea greens in brown sauce is one of my favorite Chinese foods. The culinary deconstructionists in the Cooks Illustrated test kitchen, meanwhile, have broken down the savory nature of pea greens into grassy,Ž slightly bitterŽ and tastes like peas but not sweet.Ž They conclude this flavor is maximized in a pan with nothing more than garlic, salt and fat, and I have seen no evidence to the contrary. Unless your local store has an extra-special produce section, youll only find pea shoots at the farmers market, or in your backyard. Before you harvest from your own pea patch, consider the trade-off between a mouthful of greenery today and a handful of peas tomorrow. The peas you already have in the ground, climbing their way up the trellis and probably showing some pale yellow flowers, perhaps dangling some little peas that your kids are waiting patiently to eat? Youd better let those gangly climbers live. But if they need to be thinned, eat the ones you pull. And you can always trim the shoots for a quick snack. The last 6 inches of a 3-foot plant are heavenly, and a little trim here and there wont stop progress. Pruned plants will continue growing undaunted, sometimes with more vigor in response to the insult. Elsewhere in the garden, the appearance of garlic flowers, aka scapes, marks the New Year according to the garlic calendar. After months of eating soft, sprouting garlic cloves, we can eat new garlic. The plant is alive and juicy and the flavor is sharp and spicy. Scapes are the first taste of the seasons new garlic crop. Scapes, like pea greens, are curly. Each garlic flower wants to go around twice before uncurling and standing up, eventually opening into a purple flower that looks like a celestial explosion. China Train Pea Greens€ 1 bunch pea greens, chopped or left whole € 1 handful garlic scapes, chopped into inch-long sections € 1-2 tablespoons butter € 1-2 tablespoons olive oil € Black pepper, salt, garlic powder, to taste € Bacon (optional, sort of); I keep my bacon frozen and cut it lengthwise off of one end, like slicing a sausage but through the ends of several pieces of frozen bacon at once. Most heavy knives have no problem because the fat prevents bacon from freezing rock-hard. It doesnt take a lot of these little bacon bits, sometimes called lardons, to make a difference in a meal. Use a slice of bacons worth of lardons for this dish. For the Train Sauce: € 4 tablespoons soy sauce € 4 tablespoons oyster sauce € 2 teaspoons “ sh sauce € 2 teaspoons sesame oil € 3 tablespoons lime juice Make the sauce by stirring together the ingredients. Cook the lardons (if using) patiently, until they are crispy, then remove from pan. Add the oil, butter and scapes, turn the pan to medium, and wait for the glorious fragrance of fresh garlic to “ ll the room. Add the pea sprouts; spread them around so they are evenly distributed, and wait until they ” atten down, about 30 seconds. While still bright green, turn the pan to high and add the sauce. Bring to a boil and let the sauce boil 30 seconds, then stir it around and turn it off. Serve with the carbohydrate of your choice, or unadulterated in all of its savory, tangy, green garlicky glory.More to try And finally, a recipe created by my 5-yearold son, Remy: Pea Green Chips1. With a heavy pan on lowest setting, melt 2 tablespoons salted butter. Lay pea shoots in the pan next to each other, taking up the whole pan without crowding them together too much; keep it all one layer. (Remy uses the leaves exclusively, carefully removing them and discarding the stems.) 2. Keep the heat on the lowest setting. Listen to the pea greens sputter peacefully as their moisture cooks out. Let them cook a half-hour or more until crispy. Remy calls it good here, but predictably, I add some form of garlic: scapes, bulbs, even minced leaves if you have them. Let the the garlic cook, and gently mix it with the delicately crunchy pea greens. Serve on a plate, next to a piece of toast. You might need to look for pea shoots at the farmers market. [ARI LEVAUX]Early season pea shoots provide a avorful intro to summer Prudence Hilburn Garlic & GreensThe culinary deconstructionists in the Cooks Illustrated test kitchen, meanwhile, have broken down the savory nature of pea greens into grassy,Ž slightly bitterŽ and tastes like peas but not sweet.Ž They conclude this avor is maximized in a pan with nothing more than garlic, salt and fat, and I have seen no evidence to the contrary.

PAGE 13 | Wednesday, June 27, 2018 B3ZEs CHICKEN MARINADEMarinade will season whole chicken or eight pieces. Ingredients: € 1 teaspoon salt € teaspoon black pepper € teaspoon cumin € teaspoon paprika € teaspoon of cayenne pepper (optional, but I recommend it) € 4 tablespoons yellow onion, freshly chopped € 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped € cup vegetable or olive oil € 2 tablespoons soy sauce € 1 cup of your favorite traditional beer Directions: In a bowl large enough to hold all of your chicken, mix all of the spices. Add oil and soy sauce to spices, then while slowly stirring, carefully add beer a little at a time to keep beer from foaming up. Once combined, add chicken and toss to coat. Cover chicken with plastic wrap or transfer to plastic food storage bag, place bowl or bag on a plate lined with a paper towel, and place in the bottom of the fridge. Let chicken marinate for 4 to 12 hours. When ready to Grill or bake, remove chicken from marinade and discard leftover marinade. If you would like to baste chicken with marinade, make a second batch or reserve some marinade for basting prior to adding chicken to the mix. Never use marinade that chicken has been sitting in.Its summ ertime „ time for vacations, picnics and sweltering heat. The time of year when nothing tastes as good or feels as refreshing as a nice, tall glass of iced tea. Its one of those easy things, too, which is probably one of the reasons it has become such a popular summer drink. If youre eating out, it doesnt matter whether youre going the fastfood route or indulging in something really fancy iced tea seems to be always available, normally with a choice between sweet and unsweet. You may also be offered a choice of raspberry tea. But strangely enough, the waitress rarely asks whether you would like lemon with your tea „ if you want lemon with your tea, its up to you to ask for it. On the other hand, if a customer asks for water, lemon is usually offered. Of course, if youre going on a picnic or having a meal at home, the possibilities expand. You can pick up a bottle or a jug of tea from the supermarket, in which case sweet, unsweet and raspberry tea are just the beginning. Theres also green tea, tea with lemon and honey-sweetened tea, to name a few. But if youre brewing your iced tea at home, the sky is the limit. Mint tea, for example, is a great treat for a hot summer day. You can make it very simply by popping a sprig of mint, with the leaves slightly bruised to release the flavor, into a glass of black or green iced tea. Or, if you dont have a patch of spearmint or peppermint in the garden, you can always resort to teabags from the supermarket. I keep three types of mint teabags on hand. For those times when Id just as soon avoid caffeine, theres the herbal tea, Bigelows Mint Medley, which is simply a blend of spearmint and peppermint. If Im feeling bedraggled by the heat and want a bit of a caffeine lift, I go for Plantation Mint (also from Bigelow), which combines mint and black tea. And for those few friends who believe passionately in the superiority of green tea over black, theres a box of green tea with mint. Having trouble waking up after a nap? My own choice would be between Irish Breakfast Tea, English Breakfast Tea, Constant Comment and Bigelows English Teatime. The first three, incidentally, are readily found in a decaffeinated version; so far, I have seen English Teatime only in the high-octane variety. Constant Comment, with orange peel and spices, is one of the older flavored teas, and its great hot or cold, when youre feeling particularly self-indulgent. Bigelows Toasted Coconut, a black tea flavored with toasted coconut and almond, is also very nice hot or cold. Fanatic tea fanciers would probably consider it a heathenish practice, but when I make iced tea using either Constant Comment or the Toasted Coconut, I like them with milk. And after all, if iced coffee is served with milk, why not iced tea? Lavender is slowly becoming a fairly popular flavor. Ive had it in salad dressing made for a sweet fruit salad, and in baked goods. More recently Ive noticed it being used in herbal teas. A good one for iced tea is the Lemon Lavender Lane, from Celestial Seasonings, which has recently appeared upon the market. Although both Twining and Bigelow market their teabags in individual foil packets for freshness, Celestial Seasoning considers it a sounder ecological practice to dispense with the individual wrappings as well as tags and strings. So as soon as I open a box of Celestial Seasoning teabags, I store them in a container with a tightfitting lid to keep them fresh, flavorful and fragrant. When using teabags for iced tea, I extend the brewing time by a couple of minutes. The hot tea can then be allowed to cool to room temperature. Or pour the hot tea back and forth between two large measuring cups or other containers to help it cool before pouring it over ice cubes. Mary Ryder is a food columnist for the Daily Commercial.

Sure, there were times when our trips were pre-planned, and my parents would marinade our chicken the night before. Of course, that was the best chicken ever. My dad had skills on the grill, and whenever word got out that he was grilling, we always had a crowd. I often think back to what made that chicken so special. I remember one thing that I saw my father do when there were flare-ups on the grill: douse the meat and flames with beer. When I was younger, the beer can always had that blue bull on it. If you are a beer drinker, you probably knowwhat that was. Later in life, that beer would ultimately be the leading nonalcoholic beer. My dad really loved the grill. One time I planned a surprise birthday party for my dad, and my family insisted on him barbecuing, so I made up a story that I needed him to help me cater a party for a friend. Of course he was eager to help. After the guests arrived and started wishing him a happy birthday, he realized the party was for him. Now that truly was a surprise. I dont use the grill as much as I would like these days. However, I still like the flavor of the marinade, and although Dad isnt around to grill the chicken for me, this marinade still invokes happy and tasty memories. You can bake the chicken in the oven or place on the grill. Ze Carter is a food columnist for the Daily Commercial. Email her at CARTERFrom Page B1


B4 Wednesday, June 27, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comBy Becky KrystalThe Washington PostI have devoted an entire cabinet in my kitchen to baking pans. And then some. Its a little embarrassing. Square pans in multiple sizes. Round pans in multiple sizes. The new loaf pans. The old, maybe-I-can-stilluse-them loaf pans. I could go on. I have surely gone overboard, but my hoarding notwithstanding, having a few different baking pans and dishes is smart and its a worthwhile investment. Plus, these pans are versatile, so you can do much more with them than baking. Here are my essentials and a few ideas about what you can do with them. € Rectangular baking dish. The most common size is 9 by 13 inches. You can choose from glass, metal or even ceramic, and what you choose really depends on what you think youll be making most. Glass is better for all-purpose cooking/roasting, although you can get away with baking if you keep a close eye on your baked goods and/or turn down the temperature (glass is a better insulator than metal, so cakes can brown and cook through faster). Cooking savory dishes such as lasagna, mac and cheese, strata and casseroles in Pyrex (or ceramic) is better, because you can slice and serve straight from the dish without worrying about scratching the surface. Youll also get nice browned bits when you roast chicken with vegetables. If youre more interested in baking at that size „ mega brownies, for instance „ stick with metal. € Square cake pan. Typically 8or 9-inch squares, although I think the larger size is more versatile. Again, look for metal pans with rightangled corners. This is the classic brownie pan, meaning its also good for other desserts (cakes or bars). I also use it to bake one of my favorite coffee cakes. Square pans are a nice vessel for baked eggs, or a small casserole or batch of mac and cheese. € A loaf pan. The standard sizes are 9 by 5 inches or the slightly smaller 8 by 4 inches, and theyre pretty much interchangeable as long as you tweak the cook time if youre swapping one in for the other. I generally prefer metal over glass for the same reasons mentioned above. € Round cake pan. Also available in 8or 9-inch sizes. Pick whichever size you prefer (go for metal, though) and adapt recipes accordingly. If you think youll ever be making a layer cake, consider buying at least two in one size. Or a savory cheesecake. € Pie plate. Standard size is 9 to 9 1/ 2 inches. You can buy cute ceramic ones, but I prefer good ol Pyrex „ its cheap, bakes evenly and lets you see exactly what color your pie is. Yes, definitely make pies in your pie dish! Or pieadjacent dishes, including quiche. Ive also used mine to make shortbread. When you need something shallow for dipping (bagels in toppings) or breading (chicken cutlets, above), a pie plate is very handy. Its great for a gratin, too. Even baked oatmeal is an option.5 essential pans to use for baking, moreBy Ellie KriegerThe Washington PostIt seems our food culture today allows little room for middle ground, leaving the impression that you have to choose between Team Meat and Team Meatless. But that all-or-nothing notion is more about zeitgeist than it is about science. While you can certainly eat healthfully and get all the nutrients you need without red meat, you can include it if you are smart about it. One strategy is to go with smaller portions than, say, the eight-ounce burgers or 12-ounce steaks you might ordinarily cook up and fill that extra space on your plate with vegetables and/or whole grains. The accompanying recipe is a supremely tasty example of how satisfying that tactic can be. In it, wholegrain bulgur wheat, cumin, garlic and herbs are mixed with lean ground lamb to form flavor-packed, MiddleEastern-style meat patties that are chargrilled and served with a lemony three-herb sauce. Besides adding a wonderful texture and earthy, nutty taste to the rich lamb, the bulgur provides whole-grain nutrition and volume, so the relatively modest amount of meat has a satisfying presence on the plate. Served drizzled with the sauce, and perhaps alongside a heap of simply grilled vegetables or a large salad, these lamb patties are a compelling way to enjoy meat in healthful balance.Bulgur + lamb = good stu on the grillGrilled Lamb and Bulgur Patties With Herb Sauce. [GORAN KOSANOVIC FOR THE WASHINGTON POST] 4 servings (makes 8 patties) Ingredients € 1/3 cup bulgur wheat (medium-coarse grind) € 2 medium cloves garlic € 1 large shallot (2 ounces) € 1 cups lightly packed fresh parsley leaves, plus more for garnish € cup lightly packed fresh cilantro leaves € cup lightly packed fresh basil leaves € 12 ounces lean ground lamb € 1 teaspoon ground cumin € teaspoon crushed red pepper ” akes € teaspoon salt € teaspoon freshly ground black pepper € 1 tablespoons fresh lemon juice € 1 teaspoon “ nely grated lemon zest € 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil € 1 to 2 tablespoons water Steps Cook the bulgur according to the directions on the package and allow to cool slightly. Prepare the grill for direct heat. Pulse the garlic in a mini food processor. Add the shallots; pulse until they are chopped as well. Add the parsley, cilantro and basil; pulse 10 to 15 times, until they are chopped yet still have some texture. Transfer half the herb mixture to a mixing bowl (leaving the other half in the food processor). Add the ground lamb, cooked bulgur, cumin, crushed red pepper ” akes, and teaspoon each salt and pepper to the mixing bowl. Use your clean hands to blend well and then form eight oblong patties of equal size. Add the lemon juice and zest and the remaining teaspoon each salt and pepper to the herb mixture in the food processor; pulse to incorporate, then, with the motor running, drizzle in the oil and as much of the water as you need, depending on how thick you want the sauce. Transfer to a serving bowl. Place the patties on the grill; close the lid and cook for about 3 minutes per side (for medium), until grill marks have formed.Grilled lamb and bulgur patties with herb sauce While you can certainly eat healthfully and get all the nutrients you need without red meat, you can include it if you are smart about it.

But Bettman has been nothing if not a strong leader, and all-time great Wayne Gretzky said the efforts to help each club compete have made the game stronger.His leadership and love for hockey is very evident,Ž Gretzky said. Hockey has become more entertaining year after year, thanks in part to his passion for the game.ŽBrodeur lifted the Stan-ley Cup three times with the Devils between 1995 and 2003. He leads all goalies with 691 wins and 125 shutouts in 1,266 reg-ular-season games with the Devils and St. Louis Blues, and he won the Vezina Trophy four times. He won 113 playoff games and had a 2.02 postseason goals-against average. Brodeur also scored two regular-season goals and another in the playoffs „ more than any other goalie.The Montreal native was the last real standup goaltender as the position moved almost exclusively to the butterfly technique, and his puck-handling prowess led the NHL to institute the trapezoid behind the net as a way to increase scoring.You play your whole career and you dont expect to get this phone call, but when it does, it definitely does feel pretty good,Ž said Brodeur, the Blues assistant GM who was sitting alongside Hall of Fame defenseman Larry Robinson at prospect camp in St. Louis when he got the news. I want to thank the committee for putting me on so early.ŽWhile Brodeur and St. Louis were first-ballot selections, ORee had been waiting decades for this honor since making history at the Montreal Forum on Jan. 18, 1958, with the Boston Bruins. He was 32.A native of Fredericton, New Brunswick, in Eastern Canada, ORee finished with four goals and 10 assists in 45 NHL games during the 195758 and 1960-61 seasons despite being 95 percent blind in his right eye. ORee was the first black player in the NHL but he will be the third inducted into the Hall of Fame, joining Edmonton Oilers goalie Grant Fuhr and Canadian womens national team captain Angela James.Willie paved the path for the rest of us,Ž Fuhr said. In that way he is a true builder of the game. If you look up the word builder, there should be a picture of Willie. He is the Jackie Robinson of hockey.ŽBruins owner Jeremy Jacobs said ORee receiv-ing this honor was long overdue, adding Willie has been a tremendous figure in our game both on and off the ice for over 60 years.Ž | Wednesday, June 27, 2018 C3The game that has cre-ated this quirk for the record books was the first game of a doubleheader on Saturday between Leesburg and Winter Park at Orlando Bishop Moore. Game one of the double-dip was suspended due to weather with the Light-ning leading the Diamond Dawgs 1-0 in the middle of the second inning.In a nutshell, when that game is resumed at 4:30 p.m. on July 12, Leesburg can establish a league record for consecutive wins if it holds off Winter Park.However, theres a flip side. If the Diamond Dawgs come back to win that game, Leesburgs winning streak will revert back to 12 games „ where it stood heading into the originally scheduled doubleheader.Both scenarios were confirmed Tuesday by FCSL President Stefano Foggi.Weve never had a situation like this before,Ž Foggi said. Our goal has always been to have suspended games rescheduled and played as quickly as pos-sible and (July 12) is the next time the Lightning and Diamond Dawgs play in Winter Park. We could have rescheduled the game for one of the leagues off days, but we dont like to do that for a variety of reasons.The Lightnings win-ning streak is an amazing accomplishment and Im glad they still have a chance to set a new record.ŽFoggi said league officials were asked why Saturdays suspended game was not picked up once the weather cleared. After all, the second game of the doubleheader was played to completion, with the Lightning win-ning 14-2.Why wasnt the first game completed before the second game began?We have always treated each game as an individual game,Ž Foggi said. We do that because the game originally scheduled for a particular day might have a special function attached to it ƒ a pregame promotion or a dignitary throwing out the first pitch who is available only for a spe-cific time. We have to protect those activities, too. There is no easy way to do it, but this is a policy that has evolved for us over the years, because of all the weather issues that come up in Florida during the summer months.ŽLightning manager Rich Billings said he chalks up the scenarios still in play to the nuances of summer baseball and how league officials have to find ways to get as many scheduled games played between lightning strikes and raindrops. He didnt spend much time thinking about the winning streak before Saturdays asterisk-creating events or after Mondays loss to the Scorpions.His focus, just as it has been since before opening day, is to get his team pre-pared for the next game on the schedule.I really dont understand why we didnt just finish the first game on Saturday and then play the second game,Ž Billings said. Im sure there was a reason why we didnt and if I asked someone in the league office to explain it to me, Im sure it would make perfect sense. But, we cant worry about the winning streak. Its over for now.ŽBillings said the nearly three-week span between the start and finish of the suspended game will not change his approach to games played between now and then. His lineup is set „ the players in the lineup when the game was suspended will still be in the game.However, the way in which he will handle his pitching staff when the game resumes likely will change.Well have to see how things play out,Ž Billings said. Well see whos available. That part will be a little tricky. I dont plan to hold pitchers out of games leading up to (July 12) just so we can have them for that game.The consecutive-wins record is nice and weve let the guys talk about it and have some fun with it, be we all want to win a championship ƒ thats what counts the most.Ž LIMBOFrom Page C1 quest for a first world title. He might have retired from international soccer for a second time „ and for good this time „ if it wasn't for Rojo's goal.Messi kicked the ball out of play with his first touch, was tackled with his next, but then he started to put on a show.Messi's 65th interna-tional goal owed as much to Ever Banega's long, driven pass over the defense as the forward's exquisite control on his left thigh, another touch with his left foot, and then a cool right-footed finish into the corner.Messi, who later hit the post off a free kick, and the recalled Banega ran the game in the first half for Argentina. The team's biggest problems arose whenever Mascherano lost possession in front of his own defense. And it was Mascherano who gave away the penalty with a pull on Leon Balogun at a 49th-minute corner. Moses converted „ and marked the goal with a somersault „ to put Nigeria back in con-trol of the race for second place in the group.Croatia 2, Iceland 1: Croatia ended Iceland's chances at the World Cup and helped out Argentina at the same time. Ivan Perisic capitalized on a defensive error to score a 90th-minute winner Tuesday, giving Croatia a 2-1 win over Iceland in Rostov-OnDon, Russia, and “ rst place in Group D on Tuesday. The Croats will face Denmark on Sunday in Nizhny Novgorod. Fielding a side “ lled with reserves after already being assured of a spot in the round of 16, Croatia started to take control of the match in the second half. Milan Badelj, moments after hitting the bar, scored the opening goal in the 53rd minute. He sprinted into the area and sent a bouncing shot past goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson. Iceland equalized in the 76th when Gyl“ Sigurdsson scored from the penalty spot after substitute Dejan Lovren handled the ball. Denmark 0, France 0: A game neither France nor Denmark needed to win produced the World Cup's “ rst 0-0 draw amid boos and whistles from fans on Tuesday in Moscow. A slow-paced game out of step with a vibrant tournament ensured already-quali“ ed France won Group C and Denmark advanced as runner-up. A French team with six starters resting barely tested Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel until substitute Nabil Fekir tried two long-range shots. Much of a 78,011 crowd in Luzhniki Stadium whistled misplaced passes and slow play as the game progressed and Denmark protected its point. Peru 2, Australia 0: Alreadyeliminated Peru ended Australia's hopes of advancing to the knockout round at the World Cup with a 2-0 victory on Tuesday in Sochi, Russia. The Australians had to beat Peru and hope Denmark lost to France in the other Group C match, but neither result happened. Andre Carrillo's “ rst-half goal „ a half-volley from inside the area „ was Peru's “ rst in a World Cup since 1982, the last time the South Americans played in the tournament. Peru hadn't won a World Cup match since defeating Iran in 1978. Peru captain Paolo Guerrero, who almost missed the tournament because of a doping suspension, scored the second goal early in the second half to give his team an honorable “ nish after two opening losses. ROUNDUPFrom Page C1 Academy standout, took home the Rookie of the Year award.Harden walked onto the stage at the NBA awards show in Santa Monica wearing sunglasses and a blackpatterned, beige coat. He hadnt prepared a speech, but he couldnt help but think back to his NBA journey. Sixth man of the year to MVP,Ž Harden said before walking off.Harden became the first Houston Rockets player since Hakeem Olajuwon in 1994 to be named MVP. It came after a season in which Harden led the NBA in scoring with 30.4 points per game, three-pointers made with 265 and 50-point games with four. He notched the leagues first 60-point triple-double in January and, together with Chris Paul, his backcourt mate who also appears headed to the Hall of Fame, helped the Rockets to a franchise-record 65 wins.In the days before Harden won the award, he didnt think of it as something he needed to validate his season.

Eovaldi (2-3) lost his no-hit bid when Bryce Harper hit an opposite-“ eld double off the left-“ eld wall with two outs in the sixth. The right-hander, who struck out nine, walked two and hit a batter over six innings, was making his sixth start since returning from a second Tommy John surgery in August 2016. After Diego Castillo went two innings, lefty Jose Alvarado began the ninth by walking Harper before moving to “ rst base when Chaz Roe relieved him. Roe struck out Anthony Rendon before Alvarado returned to the mound and gave up singles to lefties Juan Soto and Daniel Murphy that loaded the bases. Sergio Romo replaced Alvarado and got his sixth save by getting Trea Turner to ” y out and Michael A. Taylor to strike out. LATE N.Y. Yankees at Philadelphia Seattle at Baltimore L.A.

Whit Wyatt pitched the “ rst 16 innings for the Dodgers. Both clubs played a 26-inning tie in 1920 at the same Braves Field. 1958: Billy Pierce of the Chicago White Sox retired 26 straight Washington batters before pinch-hitter Ed Fitzgerald hit a double just inside the right-“ eld line for the only hit. Pierce then struck out Albie Pearson on three pitches and beat the Senators 3-0. 1980: The Los Angeles Dodgers Jerry Reuss pitched a no-hitter against the San Francisco Giants in an 8-0 victory at Candlestick Park. The only player to reach base was Jack Clark in the “ rst inning on a throwing error by shortstop Bill Russell. 1986: San Francisco rookie Robby Thompson set a major league record when he was caught stealing four times in the Giants 7-6, 12-inning victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Catcher Bo Diaz threw out Thompson in the fourth, sixth, ninth and 11th innings. 1993: Anthony Young of the New York Mets set a major league record by losing his 24th straight decision, 5-3 to the St. Louis Cardinals. 1999: Ken Griffey Jr. hit his 27th homer and robbed Juan Gonzalez of a three-run shot with a spectacular overthe-fence catch as the Seattle Mariners beat the Texas Rangers 5-2 in the “ nal game at the Kingdome. 2003: Boston set a major league record by scoring 10 runs before the “ rst out. The 50-minute, 91-pitch “ rst inning came during a 25-8 victory over Florida. The Red Sox also tied an AL record with 14 “ rst-inning runs. Johnny Damon matched a major league mark with three hits in an inning. 2007: Ryan Howard hit his 100th career homer in his 325th game, becoming the fastest player to reach that total. Howards three-run shot off Cincinnatis Aaron Harang gave the Phillies a 3-0 lead in the “ fth inning. The 505-foot drive was the longest in the four-year history of Citizens Bank Park. 2008: Carlos Delgado of the New York Mets homered twice, including a grand slam, and set a franchise record with nine RBIs in a 15-6 rout of the Yankees at Yankee Stadium in the opener of the teams two-ballpark doubleheader. The Yankees beat the Mets 9-0 at Shea Stadium in the night game. 2010: Jamie Moyer surrendered his record-breaking 506th home run but was sharp otherwise, and the Philadelphia Phillies took advantage of Torontos troubles to beat the Blue Jays 11-2. Moyer only mistake was a tworun homer by Vernon Wells in the third inning. Moyer passed former Phillies Hall of Famer Robin Roberts for the most homers allowed in a career. 2016: Kris Bryant became the “ rst major leaguer to hit three homers and two doubles in a game, and Jake Arrieta added a solo shot, leading the Chicago Cubs to an 11-8 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

Before you even get out of the car, you know you are in for something unique.That view of the third hole reveals a long downhill fair-way to a green that is heavily guarded by two large bunkers. It is the downhill fairway that is a dead giveaway that this course is special.The Clermont area in gen-eral is known for being out of the ordinary for Florida when it comes to elevation changes, and Green Valley has carved out a gem of a course that makes full use of those hills.Its a fun golf course,Ž said Terry Govern, Green Valleys general manager and head pro. You can play a lot and never get tired of it. On a lot of courses, if you play them a lot, you get to know every shot. Thats not the case here.ŽGreen Valley offers tees that range from just over 7,000 yards at the back to just under 5,000. Its also a bargain with specials available online ( for $24 at 10 a.m.The course was originally built in 1966 as a nine-hole course. In 1991 Green Valley brought back the original designer, Lloyd Clifton, to add another nine holes.Playing the course, you would have no idea which are the old holes and which are the newer holes. That, of course, was the reason Clifton was brought back.It was not a case of just adding 10 through 18. Instead, the newer holes are sprinkled among the original holes, and it all blends for a course that feels like it was all built at the same time.There are a few signature holes on the course, from the par-4 No. 3 that you view as you enter the course to a good test of the nerves on Nos. 7 and 8. The par-4 seventh features a second shot over water, and No. 8 uses the water again on the longest par-3 on the course.Then there is No. 10, a great way to start the second nine with a fairway that wraps around a large lake and offers temptations of cutting across the lake to glory.On many of the holes you can stand over a shot and almost hear Dirty Harry in the back of your mind. You know, the old do you feel luckyŽ line. With plenty of doglegs, the urge to cut corners can be strong. Its a course with a high risk-reward factor.And for those who decide to challenge the course only to pay the price by coming up a little short, well, there are plenty of opportunities to take your mind of that ballooning score.On No. 6, a modest par-4, there is a sweeping view over Lake Minneola with the Citrus Tower clearly visible in the distance. Then there is No. 9 with water down the right side and a bird sanctuary with more than 20 spec ies out in the rushes. Sandhill cranes and other birds are constantly roaming the course.This course rolls, which is not typical of a Florida course,Ž Govern said. Weve got really nice views and were kind of Clermonts home course. Its challenging enough, and the rough can be tough. But the fairways are generous for the most part. If you play the right yardage for your game, youre really going to enjoy yourself out here.ŽElevating the gameThe par-3 eighth hole at Green Valley Country Club requires a shot over water to the green.

Even though restaurants are oftentimes bad investments, my parents opened one anyway. My Mom said, and I remember it well: People have to eat.Ž Mom built a solid business that she later sold when she and my Dad traded frigid Illinois winters for sunny Florida. I was thinking about my Moms people have to eatŽ rationale recently while researching the large, publicly traded homebuilders. The shares of these companies have fallen since the start of the year, presumably because interest rates have risen slightly and because the pace of sales has slowed a bit. I believe that the countrys largest homebuilders have a multiyear growth runway ahead of them, so naturally the falling share prices further piqued my interest. Rising rates or not, people have to live somewhere, as well as eat. In the past, homebuilding was a relatively low-margin, capital-intensive, boomand-bust industry dominated by thousands of local builders. Small homebuilders still put up the majority of new houses in America, but thats changing quickly. The ten largest homebuilders have been growing their market share and now construct almost a third of all new homes. Industry consolidation is often a sign that the remaining players will become more profitable since they face less aggressive competition. Less competition isnt their only advantage, though. Homebuilding costs are rising, which should also benefit the larger players because they can borrow money cheaper than smaller builders; buy materials in bulk and save money; and spread their design and labor costs over more projects. All this means more profit per home than subscale competitors. Additionally, the largest homebuilders are moving to an asset lightŽ business model, which has substantially improved their returns on capital. Instead of having their money tied up in land that may or may not be developed in the near future, some homebuilders are increasingly using purchase options to reserve land they may buy rather than buying the land outright. This sometimes means they end up paying a few percent more for a parcel of land. But by securing construction sites this way, companies can build more homes where the demand (and prices) are currently highest and forgo projects that may not be as profitable. In the old days when a project got scrapped, the homebuilders had to find a buyer for their land, which isnt always an easy task. Now, when a project doesnt work out, they walk away from the land and forfeit the small option payment. Margaret R.

The Associated PressBy Sarah Skidmore SellThe Associated PressThe Trump administration may deliver on its promise to reduce a commonly used tax form to postcard size, but it does not shrink the workload for many Americans filling out their taxes.A draft copy of the new 1040 income tax form given to The Associated Press by a staffer on the Ways & Means Committee shows that the form will be reduced from two full pages to a double-sided half page. But the legwork to claim many popular deductions and provide other critical informa-tion has been moved to one of six accompanying worksheets.The postcard-sized form was a big selling point for the administration during its pro-motion of the divisive new tax law „ President Donald Trump even kissed a version of the postcard at one meeting to show his approval. Experts say that while the law does simplify the process for some Americans, many will still have to go through the same hoops to complete their taxes with this new format.The tax law greatly increases the standard deduction, mean-ing that millions of Americans will claim the deduction and skip the time-consuming process of itemizing on their taxes. The Tax Policy Center estimates that about 27 million fewer taxpayers will itemize under the new law.Taxpayers may still need to crunch the numbers to see if they should itemize or not. And 19 million filers will con-tinue to itemize, according to TPC, so they will still need to fill out one or more of the six additional forms.The supplemental paperwork would be needed to make common tax moves, such as a reporting an educator expense or claiming a deduction for interest paid on a student loan, as well as reporting childcare expenses and retirement savings con-tribution credits.Dont confuse creating a postcard with simplifying a tax filing. Its not the same thing at all,Ž said Howard Gleckman, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center.Gleckman said that most taxpayers are going to have to fill out one if not more of the new accompanying forms. And the new structure makes some beneficial components of tax law, such as the ability to claim the earned income credit „ which is designed to help low to moderate-income working people „ harder to find.The postcard is more of a concept than practice anyhow.The bulk of taxpayers complete their taxes online, meaning they still answer all the same questions regardless of how the paperwork is laid out. And unlike a postcard from vacation, those that fill out their taxes on a postcard will likely want to send it in an envelope to protect their private information on the document, such as their Social Security number.I am not sure this is going to make a whole lot of differ-ence,Ž Gleckman said.The Treasury was expected to unveil the new form this week and did not immediately comment on the draft document. The IRS also did not comment.A failure to dramatically simplify the tax filing process as promised may earn criticism from Democrats who might-ily opposed the $1.5 trillion tax plan, which cut taxes for many Americans but gave its biggest benefits to corporations and wealthy individuals.Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas, who is a member of the House Ways and Means Committee and a fierce critic of the tax law, said in a statement Tuesday that the postcard only adds needless complexity and confusion.ŽWhy stop at a postcard?Ž he said. (Why not) make it a postage stamp, with a cata-logue of schedules required to complete filing?ŽForm, not function?This image shows the front of the draft copy of the new 1040 income tax form. The draft given to The Associated Press by a staffer on the Ways & Means Committee shows that the form will be reduced from two full pages to one double-sided half page. [IRS VIA AP]


DEAR ABBY: I have been married to "Oscar" for more than 30 years. He has been inattentive for more than 25 of those years. Over the last 15 years, I have found erectile dysfunction medications in his vehicles. Oscar claims he knows nothing about them. He lies constantly, even when the evidence is right in front of him. When I ask him if he is seeing other women, he claims to be impotent and tells me I am crazy. I had an affair at 55 to try to raise my self-esteem. I once was very beautiful and even now, at age 68, I look quite good. I have stayed with my husband out of habit in spite of his hurtful comments and lack of affection. Oscar has told me that if I need affection, "go get a job in a whorehouse." I have had three back surgeries in less than a year, and when I cry with pain, he gets annoyed and tells me to cut it out. He's a narcissist and not much to look at. He goes out of his way to please strangers to make himself look good, but when I need a hand, I'm a "b----," and my husband doesn't lift a nger. Advice, please! -UNHAPPY IN NEW YORK DEAR UNHAPPY: You have put up with this for how long? Your relationship with this man (I hesitate to call him a "husband") is clearly loveless. Instead of asking me for advice, look within and ask yourself, "Is this really the way I want to spend the rest of my life?" When the chips are down and you need Oscar's help, he not only turns his back but also calls you a b---for asking. Because you know he's cheating, hire a private detective for a month and nd out who with. Then talk to a lawyer about what your rights are as a wronged wife in New York.DEAR ABBY: My 35-year-old stepson has moved back into my home so many times I have lost count. I ask only that he keep his bedroom clean, himself clean, help around the house and look for work. He got married last January and was recently escorted to my home by the local police. His new wife had taken out a restraining order against him. I was unemployed for two years, but recently found a new job. It's a start, but things are tight nancially, and my wife had to assume the role of provider, which I dislike immensely. That's why I hate talking to her about this issue with her son. I have asked -pleaded -to no avail, and now have run out of polite ways to tell him to get out. I don't want him to feel unwelcome, but I'm feeling very used. -FEELING USED DEAR FEELING USED: Your feelings are accurate. And as much as you might hate it, talk to your wife about what her son is doing. At 35, he should have long been able to nd lodgings other than under your roof. By allowing her son to live (rent-free, I assume) under the conditions you have described, she's enabling it to continue for the foreseeable future. Unless changes are made, it could ruin your marriage. A rst step should be to set a date by which her adult son should move out and insist he get help for the issue that led to the restraining order.

At other times, you pull back and reect on issues nearly endlessly. This constant back-and-forth could be confusing for some people. On the other hand, those who understand you will nd this period extremely exciting. If you are single, the person you enjoy today could lose his or her charm in a year. Date, but do not commit.

Be willing to listen to the other side of an argument. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Defer to others, as they seem to be able to inuence more people than you can. Your message gets through. Listen to what is being shared by others. A close one-on-one conversation not only feels good to you, but it also is good for you. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) You could feel as if certain matters are out of your control. Know that you might need to be less involved. Understand what is going on around you. Your sense of humor helps you make light of issues that head your way. This attitude serves you well. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) You might be unusually vibrant. However, your way of dealing with a matter could be too challenging to another person. You tend to feel exhausted when relating to this person. Perhaps the time has come to let him or her call the shots. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Dont let your personal life stress you out to the point of not being able to function in other areas of your life. A loved one could be inordinately difcult. You have a way of becoming critical and fussy if the vibes are not warm around you. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) You might want to talk through a problem with someone you feel is insightful. A partner or close associate could surprise you with the action he or she decides to take. When you get past your immediate response, youll feel OK with this persons choices.SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Be smart and handle nancial matters rst. Later in the day, a key person in your life could take a very sudden and unexpected action. Open up a discussion that touches on your feelings about this person and his or her involvement in your life. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) You march into the day ready for anything, but by lunch you might feel overwhelmed by a money matter. Open up to unusual ideas. You know when you have gone too far. A solution could involve a change in your day-to-day life. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22JAN. 19) Youll want to deal with certain facts that you feel it is necessary to handle. Others could nd a certain topic depressing at best. Another approach could be to go along with an off-thewall suggestion. Be aware of the different desires of key people. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) You could be unconventional in how you deal with a certain situation. Others might distance themselves as a result. What is clear is that what you thought would happen did not occur. You cant always count on your crystal ball to tell you the future. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You have accepted a lot of responsibility. Now you will witness some of the reactions from that decision. You could be less than thrilled by what someone shares. You will see validity in this persons comments, so open up in a conversation. | Wednesday, June 27, 2018 C7 TODAY IS WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27, the 178th day of 2018. There are 187 days left in the year.
