John Herrell said of Richards and his wife, Wendy. In June, he showed up and trashed the house. ƒhis wife said he was suicidal and he made some comments that led his wife to believe he was not quite stable.Ž Eustis police called Orange County law enforcement officers when they learned he was at Orlando International Airport. That agency determined he did not meet the requirements for involuntary commitment in a mental hos-pital, Herrell said. Eustis police, who responded to 406 N. Center St., at 3:41 a.m. Thursday, called the Sheriffs Office for assistance, including the special weapons team and its crisis negotiator. Wendys brother, Gary L. Babb, was trying to act as the go-between been Tracy and the Sheriffs Office, but Richards refused to talk. He refused to comply, refused to come out,Ž Herrell said.About 6:30, Richards emerged from the house with the gun to his head.

Attorney General Josh Shapiro also said in the court filing that his office opposes requests by unnamed parties to present their own evidence, question wit-nesses and rewrite the grand jury report in accordance with their preferred view of the facts.ŽHe argued the report should not be delayed, calling it a matter of exceptional public interest.JERUSALEMIsrael lays down red lines for postwar relations with SyriaAs Syrian government forces press on with a furious offensive against rebel-held areas in the countrys south, Israel is quietly acknowledging that President Bashar Assads forces will soon be on its doorstep, laying down red lines for postwar relations with the Syrian leader.Israels main concern is to keep archrival Iran, an Assad ally, as far away from its border as possible „ along with its proxy, the Lebanese militia Hezbollah.It is a turnaround from a few years ago, when Israeli lead-ers were publicly predicting Assads overthrow and some voices even mused about peace with a future demo-cratic Syria.SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICOPuerto Ricans accused of misusing $8M in fundsA mayor and two former government officials in Puerto Rico face public corruption charges in separate cases that involve a total of $8 million in federal and local funds, author-ities said Thursday.The suspects are the mayor of the town of Sabana Grande and the former directors of finance for the town of Toa Baja, which has struggled to pay its employees amid an 11-year recession.U.S. Attorney Rosa Emilia Rodriguez told reporters that the former officials from Toa Baja are accused of using nearly $5 million worth of federal funds to pay the towns public employees and municipal contractors.Not only is that illegal, its immoral,Ž she said.

[BRIAN KRISTA/THE BALTIMORE SUN VIA THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]By Gregory Katz, Danica Kirka and Jill LawlessThe Associated PressAMESBURY, England „ In this normally pleasant town of 10,000 residents a stones throw from the mysterious Stonehenge monument, the new reality is sinking in: Novichok, again.Four months had passed since the nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy and his daughter, and the collective nightmare seemed to be fading. No longer were forensics experts in oversize hazmat suits combing the area for an invisible killer developed by the Soviet Union in Cold War times.Eager tourists, drawn by an unusually long spell of glori-ous summer weather, were back at Stonehenge, and Englands World Cup team was surging, buoying spirits. Then a local couple with no obvious connection to Russia or to espionage fell desper-ately ill and the government said Novichok was to blame.Some are embracing the keep calm and carry onŽ ethos that helped England through two world wars, but others were frightened by the seemingly random poisoning of two innocents who now lie critically ill in a local hospital.Its shocking, and its scary,Ž said Elaine Read, a worker at The Kings Arms pub who used to occasionally share a pint with Dawn Sturgess, one of the vic-tims. Nobody expected it to happen again. Everyone was saying it was Russia, but now its just two ... local people. Theyre just like us.ŽShe said its difficult to feel safe after what happened to Sturgess, 44, and 45-yearold Charlie Rowley. Both became violently ill within hours of each other on Saturday. At first, authorities believed they had taken some bad heroin or crack cocaine, but it turned out to be Novichok. You dont know where it is, thats the trouble,Ž Read said of the elusive nerve agent. You dont know how Dawn and Charlie got it, how it crossed their paths.ŽThe bizarre case, com-bining elements of a murder mystery and a spy thriller, is stoking international tensions ahead of next weeks NATO summit, which will deal in part with worsening relations between Russia and the West.Britains interior minister demanded Thursday that Russia explain how two people were inadvertently poisoned with the same military-grade nerve agent used to attack ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, in the nearby town of Salisbury in March.Britain has accused Russia of being behind the attack on the Skripals, which the Kremlin vehemently denies. British Home Secretary Sajid Javid told Parliament on Thursday that it is now time for Russia to explain exactly what has gone on.ŽIt is completely unacceptable for our people to be either deliberate or acci-dental targets, or for our streets, our parks, our towns to be dumping grounds for poison,Ž Javid said.In Amesbury, residents were advised to wash their clothes and take other precautions if they were at the locations believed to have been frequented by the latest victims.Some were staying inside to avoid any risk of contamination, but most were going about their business. A few parts of town remained cordoned off by police, including the Baptist Church, but activity in the easygoing town center continued unabated.Im not so easily scared, but there has to be more to it,Ž said Justin Pritchard, enjoying a beer with a friend.We dont know whats going on. First, they said it was the Russians. Now this is completely separate. Orig-inally, we all thought it was the Russians, now it doesnt seem quite right,Ž he said, noting that Sturgess and Rowley have no connection to Russia.British officials said Thursday they believe the latest victims were not deliberately targeted but came into contact with the Novichok used in the Skri-pal poisoing. Police said the couple was exposed to the nerve agent after handling a contaminated item, but pro-vided no details.That isnt convincing to Rick Bird, 65, a retired Brit-ish army veteran who was trained in the handling of nerve agents during his mili-tary career. He said he never dreamed nerve agents would be deployed in Britain.The latest case seems to be an odd one,Ž Bird said. The first one in Salisbury, we thought we were all over it. This came totally out of the blue. Its the fear factor, for everybody.ŽThe last few days have been traumatic for some residents, particularly those who live close to areas that were shut down to the public because of possible contamination.Alex Brittany, 29, said he woke up to find the Baptist Church near his home being cordoned off. The experi-ence left him shaky.It is quite frightening,Ž he said. What scared me this time was that the cordons were near where I live. You expect big attacks in London, Manchester. But Amesbury? Salisbury? Wow. Really?ŽExperts say just a few milligrams of the odorless Novichok liquid „ the weight of a snowflake „ is enough to kill a person within minutes. And finding it is the problem.Another nerve agent poisoning in UKPolice are seen at the scene where counter-terrorism of“ cers are investigating after a couple were left in a critical condition, Thursday in Amesbury, England. For the second time in four months, two people lie critically ill in Englands Salisbury District Hospital after being exposed to a military-grade nerve agent developed in the Soviet Union, British police con“ rmed late Wednesday.

Jose Diaz Santisteban, 24, of 15928 Robins Hill Loop, is charged with armed rob-bery, grand theft, aggravated assault with a firearm and tampering with or harassing a victim or witness, the Lake County Sheriff's Department reports.Stand owner Rachel Albaugh told deputies that she and a stand employee confronted Santisteban behind the stand on High Grove Road about 10 p.m., where she saw he had $600 worth of fireworks. When she told him to pay for them, reports said, he lifted his shirt, pulled a pistol from his waistband and pointed it in the air. Albaugh said she and her employee ran inside her tent, then heard a gunshot a few seconds later.The suspect fled in a car with the fireworks and two other men, who later spoke with deputies but face no charges.Another witness who identified herself as the manager of nearby Club 27, 215 U.S. 27, but whose name appears different on sheriff's reports, told deputies that Santisteban returned to the area and shot at her while she stood outside behind the club. She earlier had thought he was planning to steal from the club.Deputies searched the area but did not locate the suspect. Several hours later, however, Santisteban was found in an undisclosed location, tased and arrested. He was being held Thursday at the Lake County Jail.Cops: man robbed vendor of reworksSantisteban Driver, 78, reportedly su ered a medical issue on New Smyrna BeachBy Tony Holt Gatehouse Media FloridaNEW SMYRNA BEACH „ Noelle Kirby heard a rattle and crash while on the beach Thursday and turned around. A 78-year-old Mount Dora man had apparently suf-fered a medical episode while driving his car on the beach near Esther Street Park and ran over two people, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, an official said. Witnesses said it could have been much worse if not for the actions of a young passenger in the car and two quick-thinking beachgoers. Kirby was less than 20 feet from the Chevrolet Monte Carlo when it wrecked a tent and ran over the two people. The car was headed for her, but someone in the passenger seat grabbed the wheel and the car swerved before it could hit her or her 2-year-old son. "He had a completely blank stare," Kirby said of the driver. "Some kid in the passenger seat took the wheel and the car swerved back onto the main (driving lane). ... He saved a lot of people doing that." Shortly after 1 p.m., the 78-year-old driver was head-ing south when he suffered a "medical episode," said Capt. Andrew Etheridge, a spokes-man for Volusia County Beach Safety Ocean Rescue. The two sunbathers, a 44-year-old woman from Montreal and a 35-year-old man from Oviedo, were both "conscious and alert," after being run over, according to Beach Safety. The victims „ who did not know each other „ were taken to Hali-fax Health Medical Center Man runs over sunbathersAustin Pringle was struck by a car Wednesday morningBy Frank Stanfield frankstanfield@ dailycommercial.comLADY LAKE … Sheriffs deputy Austin Pringle, who was struck by a car while investi-gating an auto burglary on the side of the road in Lady Lake Wednes-day morning, is expected to come home from the hospital Friday, accord-ing to Lt. John Herrell. Pringle was on his way home at the end of his shift at about 6:15 a.m. when he heard a call about a car burglary. He had stopped to talk to a man when they were both struck by the car. Cerontae Hodge, 22, had a seriousŽ leg injuries and was taken to Leesburg Regional Medical Center. He told deputies Pringle tried to shove him out of the way. Pringle was taken to Orlando Regional Medi-cal Center with head injuries.

[SUBMITTED] Little Groveland museum has no interest in display about the Groveland Four episodeBy Roxanne Brownroxanne.brown@ dailycommercial.comGROVELAND … It has been written about in books, there is a major motion pic-ture coming out about it and the Lake County Historical Museum is creating a display about it.Yet the little community museum in Groveland has largely ignored the Groveland Four episode that continues to enrage people across the nation in hopes of letting the community put the darkest episode in the city's history behind it.At the Groveland Historical Museum, which is operated by the Groveland Historical Society, there is no mention of the time in 1949 when four young black men were accused without evidence of raping a white woman.Howard King, a longtime Groveland resident and a board member of the Grove-land Historical Society, had a simple explanation.Enough people are talk-ing about it that we dont have to,Ž King said.Last week, a 90-minute PBS documentary titled The Groveland Four,Ž highlighted the incident, when Norma Padgett, a 17-year-old Groveland farm girl, accused Walter Irvin, Samuel Shepherd, Charles Greenlee and Ernest Thomas of raping her. Thomas fled Lake County the next day but was tracked down, shot and killed by a posse, includ-ing then-Sheriff Willis McCall. Both Shepherd and Irving were sentenced to death while Greenlee, a juvenile, was given a life sentence.Burying the pastFamily members of the G roveland Four give a round of applause at a ceremony given on behalf of the Groveland Four at the County Administration Building on Tuesday, March 15, 2016 in Tavares, Fla.

LADY LAKE Lady Lake store clerk charged with stealing $4,200A gas station attendant with a long criminal history was arrested this week for alleg-edly stealing about $4,200 for the store's register over the course of eight days in June.According to an arrest affidavit, the manager of Sunoco at 413 S. U.S. Highway 441 in Lady Lake reported that Steven Lee Peck, 36, had been caught on closed circuit video stealing from the register between June 16 and June 24. Each time, Peck took between $600 and $1,150.Peck, who lives in Lady Lake, was charged with grand theft and booked into the Lake County Jail. He has a criminal record in Lake County that goes back to 2009 and includes arrests for drug pos-session, battery and DUI.PALM BEACHFlorida man accused of raping child, recording incidentA man is accused of recording himself raping an 11-year-old then threatening to share the video with the childs mother, Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office records state. Amilcar Morales-Aguilar, 34, was arrested Sunday on three counts of sexual assault on a minor. He is being held in the Palm Beach County jail without the possibility of post-ing bond. The child was 11 years old when they met about three years ago at church, according to sheriffs records. Its unclear where the church is located. After meeting, MoralesAguilar persistently asked the child to come to his home, records state. It was not immediately clear where Morales-Aguilar lived at the time, though records indicate he most recently stayed in Lake Worth. The child eventually agreed to go over. Thats when he raped the 11-year-old and recorded it, sheriffs records state. He texted the child the next week and said he would show the video to the childs mother unless the child returned to his home. He raped the child repeatedly over the next two years, according to sheriffs office records. Peck See BRIEF, A4

Planning and Development Commission and, for 35 years, had his own business restoring antique furniture. He was a master of his craftŽ. James Augustus Cole III Wednesday, according to a Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman. They were definitely in the road and it was very dark,Ž said Trooper Kim Montes. Kim Johnson, 53, of Lady Lake, told troopers she saw the headlights but not the men. Because Pringle did not have his blue lights flashing, she did not even know it was a patrol car, Montes said. She was headed north in a 2013 Chevy Camaro and the men were stand-ing in the northbound lane at 6:09 a.m. The patrol car was facing south. Damage to the Camaro is consistent with a car traveling 35 to 40 mph. The speed limit at that location is 45, Montes said. The Sheriffs Office is still investigating the car burglary, Herrell said.Wednesday's incident highlights the dangers that law enforcement officers face during traf-fic stops. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles documented 212 crashes involving motor-ists who failed to moved over for emergency or service vehicles stopped on roadsides.And on Thursday, a Lady Lake police officer experienced a close call just after midnight when he was stopped along the side of the road to help an injured dog and a passing motorist struck his patrol car.The motorist, Iman Adonis Braddock, 31, was charged with driving under the influence with property damage and driving with a revoked license. DEPUTYFrom Page A3to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries, Etheridge said. The driver, who is from Mount Dora, did not require any medical assistance at the scene. Etheridge said he was a bit confusedŽ moments after the incident. The names of the driver and injured sunbathers were not available Thursday. Etheridge said it would take several days for the crash report to be finished. Witnesses said the person in the passenger seat of the car was the drivers grandson. After he grabbed the wheel, he physically lifted his grandfathers right leg in an effort to get his foot off the accelerator. Meanwhile, one man jumped through the pas-senger side window and pulled the emergency brake while another man reached in through the drivers side and pulled the key out of the ignition. The drivers grandson also had taken his hand and pushed down on the brake pedal, witnesses said. You could see that (the driver) was conscious, but not responsive,Ž said Pam Michael of Mount Dora. It was very scary.Ž Matthew Eickler, 18, of Tampa, was the one who jumped through the pas-senger side window to reach the brake. It was rolling pretty good,Ž said Eickler, who guessed the car was going about 10 mph before he jumped in the car. Greg Rodgers, 44, of New Smyrna Beach, was the one who reached through the drivers side window.I heard all the noise and saw all the tents flying in the air,Ž Rodgers said, adding that by the time the car had stopped, the driver was still in a fog. He didnt answer any of my commands. He was just stiff. He just locked up.Ž Thursdays incident was the second time this year that someone was run over by a vehicle while sunbathing on a Volusia beach. In April, Claire Mulder of Brooklyn, New York, was run over by an Audi TT Coupe in New Smyrna Beach. The cars tires barely missed driv-ing over the 35-year-old woman, who suffered only abrasions on her hip and shoulder after sinking deeper into the sand while the car was over her. Lifeguards said she was lying outside the designated parking area when she was struck by the car. The driver was not cited. RUNSFrom Page A3 And he kept the video, the child told authorities. When authorities spoke with Morales-Aguilar last week about the allegations, he told detectives the sex was consensual. The age of consent in Florida is 18 years old, according to Florida Statutes. People between the ages of 16 and 17 can give consent to a partner up to the age of 23. Anyone 24 years old or older commits a felony if he or she engages in sexual activity with some-one under the age of 18.

The five SWAT team members have been put on administrative leave pending a Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation into the officer-involved shooting. Its standard procedure. Meanwhile, the Sheriffs Office has other SWAT teams that can respond in case of an emergency, Herrell said. Two weeks ago, a deputy was forced to shoot a home-invasion suspect in the leg in a shootout at a Bassville Park house, and three weeks ago, Eustis police shot and killed a suicidal man, Dillan Ezell, who was making threatening gestures with what they later learned was a BB gun. Its a sign of the times,Ž Herrell said of the rising number of law enforcement-involved shootings. It is troubling and it is scary.Ž Thats why we tip our hats to them. They go out every day and put their lives on the line and do what they can to keep us safe,Ž he said.

With customary fanfare, Trump plans to announce his selection Monday night. But as he builds suspense for his second court pick in two years „ a nominee who could tip the balance toward conservatives and revisit landmark rul-ings on abortion access, gay marriage and other issues „ momentum is also growing among GOP supporters and detractors of the top contenders.Conservatives and some libertarian-leaning Republicans, including Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, have raised concerns about Kavanaugh, warning he could disappoint Republicans if his past decisions are a guide.To counter that, Kava-naughs allies have begun pushing back, reaching out to influential Republicans to ward off potential criticisms, according to one conservative who was the recipient of such outreach and spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday to discuss the situation.With the Senate narrowly divided, 51-49, in favor of Republicans, Trumps announcement will launch a contentious confirmation process as Republicans seek to shift the court to the right and Democrats strive to block the effort.of the transformative work that is occurring,Ž Pruitt wrote. However, the unrelenting attacks on me personally, my family, are unprecedented and have taken a sizable toll on all of us.ŽPruitt had appeared Wednesday at a White House picnic for Independence Day, wearing a red-checked shirt and loaf-ers with gold trim. Trump gave him and other officials a brief shout-out, offering no sign of any immediate change in his job.Trump said in a tweet that Deputy Administrator Andrew Wheeler, a former coal industry executive, will assume the acting adminis-trator position Monday.Pruitts resignation came days after two of his former senior staffers spoke to House oversight committee investigators and revealed new, embarrassing details in ethics allegations against Pruitt.Samantha Dravis, Pruitts former policy chief at EPA, told the investiga-tors last week that Pruitt had made clear to her before and after he became EPA administrator that he would like the attorney generals job, held then and now by Jeff Sessions.Pruitt had hinted at that (sic) some sort of conversation had taken place between he and the president,Ž Dravis told con-gressional investigators, according to a transcript obtained Thursday by The Associated Press. That was the position he was originally interested in.ŽA former Oklahoma attorney general close to the oil and gas industry, Pruitt had filed more than a dozen lawsuits against the agency he was picked to lead. Arriving in Washing-ton, he worked relentlessly to dismantle Obama-era environmental regulations that aimed to reduce toxic pollution and planet-warming carbon emissions.During his one-year tenure, Pruitt crisscrossed the country at taxpayer expense to speak with industry groups and hobnob with GOP donors, but he showed little inter-est in listening to advocates he derided as the environ-mental left.Ž Those groups applauded his departure.Despite his brief tenure, Pruitt was the worst EPA chief in history,Ž said Kieran Suckling, executive director of the Center for Biological Diversity. His corruption was his down-fall, but his pro-polluter policies will have our kids breathing dirtier air long after his many scandals are forgotten.Ž | Friday, July 6, 2018 A5In November 1951, NAACP Special Counsel Thurgood Marshall had the death penalty verdicts overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court. While transporting Shepherd and Irving from Raiford State Prison back to the Lake County Jail, McCall claimed he was jumped by the handcuffed pair, so he shot them three times each. Shepherd died instantly, and Irvin said he survived by playing dead.Irvin was eventually found guilty, had his sentence commuted to life in prison and was paroled in 1968. Greenlee was paroled eight years earlier.Descendants of the both families also live in the area and there have been at least two books written about the incident … one by Gary Corsair and one by Gilbert King -and a movie, based on Kings Pulitzer Prize winning Devil in the Grove: Thurgood Marshall, the Groveland Boys, and the Dawn of a New America,Ž is due out soonThe museum board and Historical Societys stance is that because there are so manyconflicting storiesabout what happened and there is no oneto prove or disprove any of it, so its best not to promote the story at all.Groveland Historical Society President Marie Padgett … who is not related to Norma Padgett … said when people come into the Groveland museum asking about the Groveland Four, they are referred to online sources for information or to the city library for the books that have been pub-lished on the subject.We agreed since the first Groveland Four book was being published, and we could not offer any additional documentation or expertise, we did not wish to risk backlash from the com-munity with a best guessŽ exhibit,Ž Howard King wrote in an email.Anyone who is asked about the events will give a different description. Few people alive today were there, and even their descriptions vary, if they offer one. In todays times, I would not believe ANYONE who was not old enough at the time to comprehend the mood of the community with respect to the sequence of eventsƒŽBob Grenier, the curator of the Lake County Histori-cal Museum, run by the Lake County Historical Society, said the responsibility of a museum and the job of its curator, is to simply share the known and completeŽ history of the area.My job as a curator is to tell the Countys com-plete story, which means the beautiful stories and the tragic ones as well,Ž Grenier said.Grenier said that although none of the initial incidents surrounding the Groveland Four took place in Tavares, the story is part of Lake Countys history as much as Grovelands.He said though every detail may not be known, it is known that the incident took place.Grenier is planning a Groveland Four exhibit in the Lake County Historical Museum.He also said that because the museum is located in the old Lake County Court-house where McCall once roamed the halls and where trials took place, a display there would be meaningful.Especially now, we should be ready for those people who have seen the documentary or the movie when it comes out. Thats our job. Thats the job of any museum,Ž Grenier said. What happened at the time is nobodys fault today. People can look at the information and take away what they want from it. It's just a piece of our history.ŽTim Loucks, a former Groveland mayor who helped push to exonerate the Groveland Four, believes there should be a Groveland Four display at theGroveland museum.In 2016, the city issued a resolution apologizing to the families. The Lake County Commission and the Florida Legislature fol-lowed suit.The alleged crime did not happen in Groveland, but the arrest did and the command post was located here. Ignoring it is not going to make it go away,Ž Loucks said. I dont think we have the right to be selective on which history we choose to recognize or tell and which history we choose not to, even if dont like elements of it.ŽHoward King said the community is embarrassed by what happened but creating an exhibit at the museum wouldn't help people "put it behind them.ŽWhen all that happened, Grovelandwas a little Southern town with families that had learned to live in peace 'together but separate' and what happened was really out of their control," he said. "The town was segregated but it was not violent."Groveland Councilman Mike Radzik is sensitive to the stigma created by the event and hopes to create a Unity DayŽ to bring people together.Groveland City Manager Mike Hein said therehave beendiscussions about commemorating the Groveland Four.Apologies have been issued by the city, but sometimes people need something more durable,Ž Hein said."We are the fastest growing city in Lake County and one of the most diverse," he said. "We enjoy that and because of that, we have to have inclu-sive conversations.Ž PASTFrom Page A3 Summer twisters and water spouts are pretty typical in Florida, said Jessie Smith, a meteorologist in the Weather Services Melbourne office. The problem is that they flair up fast and fly under the radar … literally. The biggest weather radars can see whats going on up to 7,000 feet, but distance is a factor, too. Because of the curvature of the earth, a water-hugging tornado like the one that tormented Tavares wont even show up on a radar far away, maybe not even on the ones used by Orlando TV stations, she said. There was no watch or warning on this one,Ž said Tom Carpenter, director of the EOC. It just popped up from a thunderstorm.Ž Wednesdays twister damaged the roof of the restaurant, especially the skylight, which popped off, sending ceiling tiles crashing to the floor. Exhaust turbines were blown away and a heavy exhaust fan was dumped on U.S. Highway 441. Behind the WinnDixie down the road, a shed exploded, spewing contents and pieces of aluminum everywhere. The roof also seemed to have sustained damage. The Weather Service sends experts to damage sites for big storms, but in this case, the Lake County Emergency Operations Center checked it out. The big clincher, however, were the videos on news websites and those from individuals. It was obvious it was a tornado,Ž Smith said. Its important to note the difference, she said, because micro-bursts with their severe down blasts are often mistaken for twisters. There was no doubt about the kind of storm that that roared through mobile home parks in Lady Lake and Lack Mack on Ground Hog Day 2007, killing 20 and crushing and flipping houses like sar-dine cans. You cant even compare the two storms,Ž Smith said.

A trade war between the worlds two biggest economies will leave casualties „ from makers of musical instruments to farmers in Americas Midwest to a manufacturer of soldering irons south of Shanghai.In some areas and industries, pain is already being felt.Theres going to be an awful lot of battles lost on the way,Ž said Tim Velde, a fourth-generation farmer in western Minnesotas Yellow Medicine County who is bracing for Chinas tariffs on American soybeans. I dont see anybody winning.ŽTong Feibing, general manager of Chinas Ningbo Top East Technology Co., which makes soldering irons and had been exporting 30 percent of its output to the United States „ before sales plunged in advance of tariffs „ is worried.There is a chance the company will lose money and might bankrupt,Ž Tong warned. I will do whatever I can, including layoffs.ŽAt 12:01 a.m. Eastern time Friday, the United States was set to slap tariffs on $34 bil-lion in Chinese products.

And typically leading the list„ by a long shot, with nearly half of overall complaints in 2016 and 2017, for example „ are the telemarketers and robocallers who violate the states Do Not CallŽ law. Its also a major problem for Floridians on a national scale. The Federal Trade Commission, which regulates the national Do Not Call List, reported that in 2017 Florida residents filed 588,000 of the 3.5 million complaints it received for unwanted telephonic solicitation. But as of last Sunday, Florida residents got some muchneeded help in this regard „ thanks to lawmakers from neighboring Polk Countys delegation: state Sen. Denise Grimsley, a Sebring Republican who represents the southern half of Polk County, and state Rep. Sam Killebrew, R-Winter Haven. The pair sponsored a new state law, which took effect Sunday, that empowers telephone companies to proactively block calls from numbers of suspected robocallers or spoofŽ callers, or those who utilize a fake number to disguise the real number from which they are calling. In a recent meeting with The Ledgers editorial board, Grimsley told us her advocacy was based on personal experience. She had to deal with Elizabeth,Ž an aggressive and annoying prerecorded telemarketer who made repeated calls to Grimsley in an effort to sell her a vacation package. Federal and state laws already prohibit much of this activity. For instance, consumers who enroll on the federal or state do-not-call lists are supposed to be shielded from such calls, except under certain circumstances, which can include having a prior relationship with the company or if the call comes from a charity, pollster, or political campaign. Yet, as a House staff analysis of the new law noted, Many robocalls and spoofed calls are made without regard to the laws in place to prevent them.Ž One reason is that these callers, many of which are scammers or identity thieves, utilize new technology to circumvent the lists. Grimsley shared with us that another key reason for that is the phone companies themselves werent permitted to block such calls, except when people were members of the do-not-call registry. This new law changes that, and should help reduce such activity, she added. Whats noteworthy about this new law is that it builds on the work of the industry. According to the House analysis, the Federal Communications Commission in 2016 urged the telecommunications industry to help address this problem, and from that emerged the Robocall Strike Force. One task force recommendation entailed the creation of a Do Not OriginateŽ list, a compilation of phone numbers known to be illegitimate. Last November the FCC adopted the recommendation, which also helped form the basis of Floridas new law. Under the new statute, telecom providers can now block calls if the customer requests so after recognizing a number is for inboundcalls only, if the number is not a valid phone number (such as consisting of just one repeated digit), or if the number has not been allocated to a provider or has been allocated but has not been used or assigned to a customer. As the government acknowledges, no law is perfect. So its possible the scammers and the irritating ElizabethsŽ will still find a way through this electronic wall. But we appreciate the work of Grimsley, Killebrew and the rest of the Legislature to help reduce consumers frustration level and protect them from the fraudsters.

Wagner, Leesburg Shady election politics The write-in scam reared its ugly head again when Kimberly Semento, a Republican, filed as a write-in the District 2 Commissioners Republican primary race between Sean Parks and Tad Schnaufer. By filing, without paying any money or collecting petitions, Kimberly disenfranchised 128,265 voters in Lake County for this race. The legal but ethically challenged act by Kimberly disenfranchised all the registered Democrats, Independents, NPAs and other party voters in Lake County. It is all based on a advisory opinion issued in 2000 by Katherine Harris, that a write in meets the Florida Constitutions requirement of opposition in the General Election. Article VI, Section 5(b). That provision states: If all candidates for an office have the same party affiliation and the winner will have no opposition in the general election, all qualified electors, regardless of party affiliation, may vote in the primary elections for that office. The advisory opinion by Katherine Harris has been challenged only once in the courts in 2006. I was the plaintiff in Marvin Jacobson v. Hubert Dale Martin III in a hearing held in Lake county. Needles to say, I did not win. The write-ins name does not appear on the ballot, but as a registered write in, all votes received are counted. In many elections the write-in has not received a single vote, rarely having double digit votes. In some counties we have professional writein candidates who have been in many different races for a fee to help one candidate. In this latest scam in Lake county, I will leave it to the voters to decide which candidate hired the write in. It is a sad reflection on the Florida Legislature and governor and gives meaning to the duhŽ into Floriduh.ŽMarvin Jacobson, ClermontThank you.

He was a fountain of encouragement. He was a sounding board. Hed share his unique perspective on life „ making the mundane exhilarating. The world lost Rob, Gerald Fischman, Wendi Winters, John McNamara and Rebecca Smith last Thursday. Each was a gentle, caring soul who generously shared their expertise and time with those in their orbit. Wendi was a whirlwind of activity. She was a prolific writer who knew every backstory and everybody in Annapolis. She was a proud mother and a relentless volunteer. Gerald was on the opposite energy spectrum but beloved for his dedication to the craft of journalism and biting wit. His words were few but often were pointed and could bring the house down with a perfectly timed quip on the latest political scandal. John had a wicked cynical sense of humor. A casual how ya doing?Ž often was greeted with a pretty (expletive deleted) bad, how about you?Ž Then, hed tell you about the wonderful story hed dug out about an animal control fella in Bowie, or a political prodigy high schooler or the folks who flocked to the streets when the train carrying RFKs body passed through. Rebecca would bounce through the newsroom looking to help. It might be a request for supplies or delivering boxes to a colleague moving to her first apartment. Capital Gazette was devastated Thursday. The world lost five bright souls who used their passion for storytelling to serve their community. Their spirit remains. Those blessed to know these incredible people will honor them by sharing their light. As Capital Gazette continues to report on the news, events and people impacting our community, we must embody their generosity, wisdom and dedication. We cannot forget gratitude. We are fortunate our lives intersected with these five beacons of light. Our newsrooms mission will never change, but we will be better by sharing their influences with the world in the work we do. Rob Hiaasen was more than a mentor and a boss. He was a friend. He was Mr. Rob to my daughters. He showered my oldest, Olivia, with attention and delighted in her personalized drawings for him. He taped Olivia and Sienas recent artistic creation to the window at his desk. It mattered to him. He was an inspiration, and I will unabashedly steal his compassion and generosity. I am forever grateful my path crossed Robs. I recognized his gifts immediately. I delivered this to Rob in May 2013. Rob, Just a quick note to say thanks. I realize I have been truly blessed in my professional career and I dont acknowledge enough those who believed in me, encouraged me, taught me and inspired me. So, thank you. Thank you for taking a chance on me during a time my confidence was low and a change was needed. In the past 15 months, youve allowed me to grow and helped restore my confidence. Thanks for giving me room to develop my own leadership style. Ive stolen much of that from you. Hardly a day goes by when I dont learn something from you „ how to look around that corner for the real story or hearing you walk through a story with a reporter. Your guidance has been invaluable and I appreciate it. Thanks. Of course, Rob „ who cringed at compliments but offered them frequently „ turned it around to thank me. Thank you, Rob, for everything. Jimmy DeButts is Community News Editor and Metro Columnist for Capital Gazette.ANOTHER OPINIONThank you Rob Hiaasen for living with compassion, gratitude

SPORTSPaul Jenkins, Sports editor 352-365-8204 paul.jenkins@dailycommercial.comThe Associated PressMOSCOW „ What to watch for in Fridays matchups at the World Cup quarterfinals: Teammates vs. TeammatesThe first match features a number of teammates on their professional clubs facing off against each other when France takes on Uruguay in Nizhny Novgorod. France forward Antoine Griezmann plays at Atletico Madrid alongside Uruguayan defenders Diego Godin and Jose Maria Gimenez; Godin is godfather to Griezmanns daughter. Those ties are so thick that Uruguay striker Luis Suarez needled Griezmann this week for trying to be Uruguayan. Suarez himself will find a Barcelona teammate on the other side of the pitch in French defender Samuel Umtiti.With so much talent on both sides, the late game in Kazan features even more intrasquad intrigue: Manchester Citys Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho and Danilo against team-mates Vincent Kompany and Kevin De Bruyne of Belgium; Brazils Willian against Chel-sea teammates Eden Hazard, Michy Batshuayi and Thibaut Courtois, all Belgian; and Belgiums Thomas Meunier against his Brazilian team-mates at Paris Saint-Germain „ Marquinhos, Thiago Silva and Neymar. Speed and skill vs. Solid DBelgium is scoring almost a goal a game more than any other team in the tourna-ment, with 12 in four matches. Brazil, to the surprise of some, has allowed just one goal in its four games. Only one other team has been that stingy: Uruguay, which will face a France attack loaded with speed and scorers. In both cases, something will have to give. Neymar being NeymarThe most expensive player in the world has had a strong tournament so far and is the biggest star whose team is still alive. Some think Neymar could even win his first FIFA player of the year award if Brazil wins it all. But hes increasingly catch-ing grief about his flopping, diving and writhing around after minor contact. Will that prompt the referee to give the Belgian defenders more leeway, or will Neymar keep getting the calls?First faceo features foes By Dan GelstonThe Associated PressDAYTONA BEACH, Fla. „ It was the finish NASCAR banked on as the genesis of its ballyhooed youth movement.Austin Dillon and Darrell Wallace Jr. finished 1-2 in the Daytona 500, a promis-ing pair of 20-somethings behind the wheel of iconic car numbers that could excite old-school fans, yet a pair with enough social media savvy that might attract millennials to a sport in dire need of a spark. The kids were coming!Wallace and good buddy Ryan Blaney, Chase Elliott, William Byron and Daniel Suarez were among the rela-tive newcomers in NASCAR who had their images plastered on billboards and program covers and hailed as NASCARs version of The Next Big Thing.Yet, at NASCARs halfway point, the series returns this weekend to Daytona International Speedway with the so-called Young Guns in danger of becoming The Next Big Bust.Theyre not winning races „ or even fans inside their sport.International Speedway Corp. President John Saunders pinned some of NASCARs woes on the failure of the new crop of drivers that have failed to replace retired stars Dale Earnhardt Jr., Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards and even Danica Patrick in performance or popularity.We still have an issue with star power, and hopefully this stable of young drivers coming along will start to win and build their brands,Ž Saunders said Thursday.

[JOHN RAOUX/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Howard FendrichThe Associated PressLONDON „ Garbine Muguruza insisted she wasnt thinking about attempting to collect a second consecutive Wimbledon championship. She was adamant that she was not focusing on defending her title.It doesnt really matter,Ž she would say, what hap-pened in 2017.ŽWell, it seems safe to say shell really want to forget what happened at the All Eng-land Club in 2018. Muguruza was stunned in the second round 5-7, 6-2, 6-1 by 47th-ranked Alison Van Uytvanck of Belgium on Thursday, the latest upset in a series of them at the grass-court major tournament.Its a little bit sad,Ž Mugu-ruza said. But today didnt go my way.ŽThats become a familiar refrain for prominent women at this topsy-turvy Wimbledon.Only two of the top eight seeded women are still in the field after four days of action.Van Uytvanck, meanwhile, began this week with a 1-4 record at Wimbledon and only one Grand Slam quarter-final appearance to her name. Muguruza, meanwhile, owns two major titles, including the 2016 French Open, and was the runner-up at the All England Club in 2015.But that didnt matter on this day.Van Uytvanck was aggres-sive from the baseline, compiling a 29-18 advantage in winners, and broke in seven of Muguruzas 13 service Muguruza, nalist Cilic outSpains Garbine Muguruza falls trying to return the ball to Alison Van Uytvanck of Belgium, during their womens singles match, on the fourth day at the Wimbledon Championships Thursday in London. [BEN CURTIS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] The Associated PressWHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. „ Webb Simpson ran out of sensational shots in the end to keep him from joining an elite group.Simpson shot a 9-under-par 61 for a one-stroke lead over Whee Kim after the first round of A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier in West Virginia on Thursday.Simpson posted his best career score after shaking off a two-hour weather delay with six holes left in his round. He came up short in his bid to shoot the eighth sub-60 round on the PGA Tour. Needing birdies on the par-5 17th and the par-3 18th for a 59, he parred both. I knew a 59 was in there, but its all right,Ž Simpson said. Great start. Scores were good though, so youve got to keep the pedal down.ŽKim had back-to-back bogeys on the front nine on the Old White TPC, and then ran off five birdies over a seven-hole stretch. The South Korean had 10 birdies overall and shot 62. Teenager Joaquin Niemann of Chile was another stroke back at 7-under 63.Kelly Kraft shot 64 while Jason Kokrak, Keegan Brad-ley and J.J. Henry were at 65. Playing in the afternoon, Simpson had three consecu-tive birdies around the turn, then chipped in for eagle on the par-5 12th to move to 7 under. A few minutes later, the horn sounded stopping play just as he was hitting his tee shot on the par-4 13th. The shot landed on a hillside.Momentum is a funny thing, but I should feel good when I got back out there,Ž Simpson said during the delay.After play resumed, Simp-sons pitch from the hill went across the 13th fairway into tall fescue. His approach shot landed 3 feet from the pin and he escaped with par. He added birdies on the par-4 14th and 16th holes.Simpson, whose fourshot victory at The Players Championship in May was his first win in more than four years, has seen his share of chances in West Virginia before. He finished third in 2014 and lost a one-stroke lead on the back nine in the final round in 2011 and 2012.Hes got several young-sters chasing him.The 26-year-old Kim has never won on the PGA Tour, losing in a three-way playoff in Las Vegas in November.The 19-year-old Niemann had his lowest score in nine PGA Tour starts this season. Niemann played in this tournament a year ago as an amateur, shot 64 in the final round and tied for 29th place.Im one of the youngest out here so I feel like Ive got nothing to lose,Ž Niemann said. My game was feeling really good and my putter was good. So all my game was good today.Ž Webb Simpsons 61 leads PGA event in WVSee OUT, B3 See NASCAR, B3The next big thing „ or bust?

Its obviously a little bigger scale than normal, and I think our guys get used to playing in front of big crowds, and other teams arent used to it,Ž Billings said. When they come here they enjoy the atmosphere, and Im glad that other teams get to experience that as well. I think a lot of other teams get up for games like this, whereas our guys are just kind of used to it.ŽLeesburg (16-5) got the crowd on their feet in the bottom of the second inning with the first run of the game. Recently announced All-Star Javeon Cody walked to lead off the inning and advanced to third on a wild pitch from Sanford starter Jeremy Orbik. Jay Prather, another All-Star for the Lightning, drove Cody in with an RBI ground-out to put the Lightning up, 1-0.The River Rats (10-13) took the lead for good in the top of the third, put-ting up three runs, then added two more in the fourth. Jonnie Benniefield III scored twice through the two frames, and Gar-rett Sheffield added two RBIs.Down 5-1 in the bottom of the fifth, the Lightning closed the gap, thanks to a Luke Brown infield single, an error by Sanford catcher Josh Crouch and another infield single by league RBI leader Tanner May. A pair of base-run-ning errors by May and Tucker Rayburn ended a potentially big inning for Leesburg with only one run added to the board.Sanford added another run in the top of the sev-enth on a Josh Crouch sacrifice fly, but Leesburg answered with two runs of their own to cut the Rats lead down to 6-4. Jose Crisostomo and Luke Brown drew back-to-back walks to start the rally, and a Bo Plagge balk after Crisos-tomo stole third gave the Lightning their third run of the game. Two outs later, Tucker Rayburn drove in Brown for the fourth Lightning run, but Javeon Cody flew out to deep left field before the home team could tack on any more.Leesburg had two run-ners on and only one out in the bottom of the eighth after Jay Prather walked and pinch-hitter Walker McCleney was hit by a pitch. But new Sanford hurler Jarrod Cande was able to get Crisos-tomo to pop out and Luke Brown to hit a sharp liner that was snagged by third baseman Ryan Brewer, keeping the Lightning scoreless in the inning.Sanford added an insurance run in the top of the ninth and Leesburg couldnt counter, ending the game. This loss marked Lees-burgs first series loss of the summer, something coach Billings credited to Sanfords ability to avoid making multiple mistakes in a row.I definitely think San-ford outplayed us (in the series). They limited their mistakes and thats one thing we talked about the end of the game, if they made a mistake in the field, they got the next guy out. We failed to do that quite a few times.ŽLightning trim Sanfords lead but fall, 74Visiting River Rats hold on to win before huge holiday crowd


games. Still, it was not easy finishing off the most significant victory of her career.Inside,Ž the 24-year-old Belgian said, I was, like, dying.ŽThe No. 3-seeded Muguruza joined No. 2 Caroline Wozni-acki, No. 4 Sloane Stephens, No. 5 Elina Svitolina, No. 6 Caroline Garcia and No. 8 Petra Kvitova on the way out so far, along with fivetime major champion Maria Sharapova. Those departures leave No. 1 Simona Halep, the French Open champion who won in straight sets Thursday, and No. 7 Karolina Pliskova in the field, along with seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams, who is seeded 25th, and five-time champ Venus Williams, who is No. 9.I mean, anyone, on a good day, can beat anyone,Ž Van Uytvanck said. Thats what I think. I still think the top players, their average level is higher than, lets say, subtop players. But anyone on a good day can beat anyone, for sure.ŽSure seems that way, par-ticularly this week. Among the men, too.Resumes and past perfor-mances do not matter. At all.Marin Cilic, for example, entered his second-round match with all sorts of advantages in experience and success over his opponent, including a runner-up finish at the All England Club a year ago and a U.S. Open title in 2014.So when Cilic took a twosets-to-none lead against a guy who began the week with records of 0-2 at Wimbledon and 6-15 at all majors, it appeared the No. 3 seed was on his way to a straightforward victory and a step closer to a potential semifinal rematch against defending champion Roger Federer.Hold that thought. The out-come that seemed obvious vanished, and Cilic is gone, giving away a big edge in a 3-6, 1-6, 6-4, 7-6 (3), 7-5 loss to 82nd-ranked Guido Pella of Argentina in a match completed Thursday after being suspended midway through the third set because of rain the evening before. A big surprise,Ž Pella said.Cilic called it a big disappointment.ŽJust didnt feel so good. I was not as accurate as yesterday,Ž he said. I was just missing some balls, giving him chance to keep playing.Ž His exit means the highest-seeded man No. 1 Federer possibly could face before the final as he bids for a recordextending ninth Wimbledon title would be No. 8 Kevin Anderson or No. 9 John Isner. Theyre two of the tours big-gest servers, and both won contests carried over from Wednesday. ISC owns tracks in California, Kansas, Virginia, Arizona and Alabama and reported a 10 percent dip in attendance this season for the six races held on its properties from March through May.Weather and travel; ticket prices and event oversaturation; and long, boring races „ all kinds of critical issues and mundane nuisances „ have been blamed for NAS-CARs tumble.Now its Saunders turn to gripe about the dearth of stars, and the drivers have had enough of serving as NAS-CARs whipping boys.Honestly, this whole young guys need to win now thing is getting old,Ž the 24-year-old Blaney said. Were trying. Were trying our hardest. Its not like I go out there and Im happy for fifth every single week.Any other guy under the age of 25, Ill just say is the same way. Its not a competi-tion here between young guys and old guys. Its a competi-tion between 39 other cars and yourself. No matter what your age is or your experience level, everyone is trying to accom-plish the same goal.ŽWallace threw the criti-cism back at Saunders, saying outdated tracks that fail to keep pace with modern-day amenities are just as much at fault for driving away fans.It kind of goes hand-in-hand from us behind the wheel to people that are here hosting us,Ž Wallace said.Wallace, whose secondplace finish in the Daytona 500 was the best ever by a black driver in the event, is a social media darling with more than 176,000 Twitter followers, posting behind-the-scenes videos and starring in a documentary series that aired on Facebook Watch. The 24-year-old Richard Petty Racing driver even takes on his critics and serves as his own one-man publicity machine for NASCAR fans.But its checkered flags and championships that will define drivers, not likes and retweets. I might not post stupid videos every week or stuff like that to try and gain fans,Ž Kyle Larson said, taking a subtle shot at Wallace. I try to gain fans on the race track.ŽLarson, 25, nearly broke his season-long winless streak last week when he lost a last-lap dual with Kyle Busch at Chicagoland. Busch won his fifth race of the season and rubbed his hand in his eye to mimic a crying child for all the fans whining that the 2015 Cup champion won another race.NASCAR has a three-driver chase toward the champion-ship through the first 18 races:€ Busch, 33, five wins.€ Kevin Harvick, 42, five wins.€ Martin Truex Jr., 38, three wins.Dillon and 28-year-old Joey Logano, an 11-year vet-eran and former Daytona 500 champ, are the only drivers in their 20s who have won this season. Just six drivers have won races, and NASCARs 16-driver playoff field could have more contenders making it on points than victories.I think it would be healthy for the sport if we just see more variation in winners,Ž Blaney said. There have been six win-ners this year. Come on now. You cant just put that on the young guys for not winning. Thats a lot of other people that arent winning, too.ŽSeven-time champion Jimmie Johnson is winless. So is former Daytona 500 cham-pion Denny Hamlin and 2012 series champ Brad Keselowski.But those greats all have resumes that can stamp them as future Hall of Famers.Fair or not, NASCAR and its tracks threw their promotional weight this season behind up-and-comers instead of perennial contend-ers and have paid the price for the slight: FOX and FS1 aver-aged 2.54 million viewers for Cup Series races this season, down 23 percent from 2017.The youth movement needs to start, well, moving. I just want to know what we do about it, do you know what I mean,Ž Dillon asked. How do you move forward with that? Because the guys that are in the sport are talented enough to win.Ž | Friday, July 6, 2018 B3By Steve DouglasThe Associated PressREPINO, Russia „ England defender John Stones described Colombia as the dirtiest team Ive ever come up againstŽ and said his teams ability to rise above the provocation is a sign of its growing maturity at the World Cup. England won a penalty shoot-out Tuesday after a feisty, physical round-of-16 game finished 1-1 following extra time and with eight yellow cards handed out by the referee „ tying for the most issued in any game in the tournament. Colombias players received six of them.Ive never seen a game like this before and how they behaved,Ž said Stones, who has played five years in the Pre-mier League and four years for England. There were things that weve never experienced before.Ž Among them, said Stones, was Colombias players surrounding and pushing the referee, head-butting Jordan Henderson and scuffing the penalty spot before Harry Kanes second-half spot kick. Stones also highlighted a member of Colombias techni-cal staff barging into Raheem Sterling as the players came off for halftime. Its obviously their image and how theyve represented their country,Ž Stones said Thursday. We stuck to our game plan and never got involved in the brawl that they wanted. At the end of the day, they are on the plane back home.Ž Englands players werent completely innocent, how-ever, with Henderson getting booked and appearing to use his head to barge into an opponent. Argentina great Diego Maradona criticized American referee Mark Geiger and said the outcome of the game was a monumental theft,Ž comments he apologized for Thursday after FIFA rebuked him. Englands national team has often been accused of not being streetwise enough in major tournaments but it passed this test against Colombia, with players killing time at free kicks, for example. We kept playing our own football and thats a great sign for a team to have,Ž Stones said, to make sure we have that quality of tunnel vision to get out of the game. It was a difficult situation to be in and we can look back on it and be very proud of it.Ž A grueling game has taken its toll on England, with striker Jamie Vardy missing training on Thursday because of a groin injury and battling to be fit for the quarterfinal match against Sweden in Samara on Saturday. Expectation levels were generally considered to be low among England fans coming into the tournament but they are rising now, particularly since the team is in the half of the draw with the supposedly weaker teams. Beat Sweden, and England has a game against Croatia or host nation Russia to reach a first World Cup final since 1966. Stones i snt looking too far ahead, though, not with England having won only two of its last 15 meetings with the Swedes. I think if you say its an easy game in a quarterfinal of a World Cup, then you are pretty stupid to say that,Ž the Manchester City defender said. They play very structured from the back, sit quite deep from what weve seen and we know what were up against. Sometimes they can throw you these teams, they can go kind of under the radar, but there is no question they are a good team.Ž Englands Stones: Colombia dirtiest team hes facedEnglands John Stones speaks during a press conference Thursday inside the England media centre at the 2018 soccer World Cup, in Repino near St. Petersburg, Russia.

PAGE 17 | Friday, July 6, 2018 C1 Brad Bergholdt DRIVETom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 Powered by Q: I loaned my car to my brother for a few days and when he returned it he told me it was overheating and I should get it fixed right away. I hadnt noticed anything like this previously. What could be causing this? „ Angie T.A: This will be difficult without more details. Im curious what your brother observed to lead him to say this and what actions he took to protect the car from damage. Normal engine operating temperature for most cars and trucks is about 195 degrees, with occasional increases to perhaps 230 degrees. Perhaps he observed a higher than normal reading? Anything over 240 would get my heart beating faster! If theres a red coolant light thats illuminating, this is a really big deal as the threshold for lighting is likely 250 degrees, seriously hot. Also, if the car is spewing coolant on the ground, emitting steam, or making gurgling sounds from under the hood, its screaming fix me right now!Ž Here come the questions: When does the higher than normal temperature occur, at low speeds, or at higher speeds? Is the car a front-wheel drive vehicle with a transverse (sideways) engine? If so it would use an electric cooling fan to draw air through the radiator as conditions warrant (fluctuations in temperature between 195 and 230 degrees are normal when it is stopped or operating at speed as the fan cycles on and off). If you have an older car or pickup truck with a longitudinal engine, it would likely have a mechanical fan driven by the engine (you wont see temperature swings at idle as the fan runs all the time). If higher than normal engine temperatures are encountered mostly at low speeds in an electric fan vehicle, an inoperative fan is a likely cause. If overheating occurs mostly at high engine load with a mechanical fan, the fan clutch may be faulty. Overheating at all or higher speeds (both fan types) can have many causes: low coolant level, faulty water pump impeller, sticky thermostat, collapsing radiator hose, missing/damaged air diverter, among others. Checking the coolant level would be an important and simple first step to begin assessment of this condition. Be sure to only do this with the engine cool, as hot and pressurized coolant can cause serious burns when a radiator cap is removed or a hose bursts. Some vehicles use an overflow tank (thin plastic with loose fitting cap) and the radiator cap is on the radiator, while others use a thick-walled expansion tank with a pressure relief cap on top. Checking fluid level in only an overflow tank is not sufficient as the radiator could still be low (its OK with an expansion tank). If the coolant level is found to be low and there are no signs of rapid leakage its OK to add water temporarily and seek nearby professional services right away. If theres rapid leakage, a tow is best. Overheating an engine can cause serious damage and is to be avoided at all costs. Please make every effort to get this to a shop as soon as possible for a complete diagnosis. With luck, perhaps the fault could be as simple as a leaky hose or loose hose fitting.

Readers may send him email at bradbergholdt; he cannot make personal replies.UNDER THE HOODOverheating engine is a mysteryBy Robert DufferTribune News ServiceThe most American-made cars may not be made by the most American car brands. Four out of the top 10 most American-made vehicles of 2018 are made by Japanese brand Honda, according to the annual report fromIts part of the globalization of automotive manufacturing,Ž Executive Editor Joe Wiesenfelder said in a phone interview. The brand on the vehicle isnt the only part of the equation of what makes it American.ŽThe Honda Odyssey, for instance, is built in Lincoln, Honda dominates most American-made vehicles list of 2018The 2018 Honda Odyssey is the second most American-made vehicle, according to Its made in Lincoln, Alabama, and is one of four Honda vehicles in the top 10 annual list. [HONDA/TNS] Larry PrintzTribune News ServiceGREENWICH, Conn. „ Behind the perfectly trimmed hedges and expertly manicured lawns of many gated neighborhoods, the 2018 Buick Lacrosse resides in the driveways, garages and the hearts of active adults. After all, not everybody wants to drive a car that looks as if its leapt out of a gaming video and rides with all of the forgiveness of an oxcart. It doesnt matter if its fastest around the Nurburgring. It has to be fast enough for the daily commute while comfortably ensconcing me in a plush cabin with the latest in high tech. And it has to look good.So its no surprise that when the redesigned 2017 Buick Lacrosse debuted, its sculpted lines flowed with a sporting, dynamic grace. Inside, supple shapes with wood and metallic trim framed the center-mounted infotainment screen. A huge sunroof brightens up the cabin. Its contemporary, not classic.This is enhanced for with the 2018 Lacrosses new Avenir trim, first introduced on the 2018 Enclave in October. Think of it as Buicks answer to GMCs Denali or, in a new version of Buicks Ultra badge. To distinguish this new trim level, the 2018 Lacrosse Avenir is adorned with a unique cross-mesh grille with chrome accents, Avenir-badged doorsills, and exclusive 19-inch or optional 20-inch Midnight Silver wheels distinguish this cars appearance. Inside, youll find Avenir embroidered on the headrests, and a handsome new Chestnut-colored interior.This new top trim level adorns Buicks largest sedan, one that competes against the Kia Cadenza, Toyota Avalon, Nissan Maxima and the Chrysler 300. The front-wheel-drive Lacrosse is offered in Base, Preferred, Essence, Premium and Avenir trims. All-wheel drive is avail-able on the top three trim levels. All Avenirs are powered by a double-overhead cam 310-horsepower V-6 and a nine-speed automatic trans-mission. A mild hybrid system that GM calls, eAssistŽ pairs an electric motor and 24-cell lithium-ion battery pack with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine and a six-speed automatic transmission that produces 194 horsepower. Its offered on all trim levels except the Avenir, which comes solely with the V6. While eAssist does boost fuel economy by 4 mpg … no small thing „ it trails the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.Given that, it makes it the 2018 Lacrosse Avenir the best way to spend your Buick bucks, delivering a boatload of premium features.If high-tech driver-assis-tance features are important, youll be relieved to know that rear cross-traffic alert, lane change alert with side blind zone alert, forward collision alert, following distance indi-cator are standard. Adaptive A welcome wardrobe updateThe front-wheel-drive Lacrosse is offered in Base, Preferred, Essence, Premium and Avenir trims. [PHOTOS BY BUICK/TNS] Being Buicks “ nest four-door, youd expect a heavy equipment load, as well as a spacious interior, which the 2018 Buick LaCrosse has in spades.

cruise control, forward automatic braking, pedestrian detection and automatic parking assist are optional.And being a Buick, its going to indulge your inner-hedonist with a leather interior, Bose Centerpoint 11-speaker surround sound audio system; Head-Up Display; power pan-oramic moonroof; power rear sunshade; heated/ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel, 4G LTE onboard Wi-Fi, Android Auto and Apple Car-Play, and „ of course „ an infotainment system with navigation. Available fea-tures include an electronically controlled active suspension system with Touring and Sport modes. Other extra goodies include massaging front seats, and wireless phone charging.But being Buicks finest four-door, youd expect a heavy equipment load, as well as a spacious interior, which this car has in spades. You cant say the same of the trunk; its disappointingly small given the vehicles size.Nevertheless, being a Buick it cruises quietly, just as youd expect. It ably brushes off the effects of Americas deteriorating highways, delivering a comfortable ride. The engine proves to be smooth and powerful, the transmission being the perfect partner. This is one Buick that wont be travelling too slowly in the left lane. Perhaps most surprisingly of all is this cars agility; this is no senior shuttle. The LaCrosse Avenir proves responsive for its size, although you might want to drive it with and without the adaptive suspension; the added handling prowess may not be worth the trade-off in ride quality.With its simple elegant inte-rior, flowing lines and posher trim, the 2018 Lacrosse Avenir is a lively, athletic premium sedan, one that still pampers you in the finest Buick fashion „ thank goodness.

Compare it with Buick, which is considered to be as American as the red, white and blue in its badge: the Buick Envision crossover is manufactured in China with only 2 percent domestic parts, said Wiesenfelder.The Odyssey (ranked second) sold in its home country doesnt share much with the larger one here, just to give some perspec-tive on how confusing it can be to assign nationalism to a brand. The other Hondas cracking the top 10 were the Honda Ridgeline pickup (third), Honda Pilot SUV (sixth) and Acura MDX midsize SUV, all made in Alabama on a shared platform to simplify manufacturing. The Acura MDX (seventh) is also made in East Liberty, Ohio.The way the Americanmade Index has been built was to reflect U.S. economic impact,Ž Wiesenfelder said. You cant tell what the U.S. economic impact is based solely on the brand.ŽThe global nature of auto manufacturing means parts can be sourced from all over the world then produced domesti-cally, with profits funneled to headquarters in another country.The most American-made car in the first quarter of 2018 is the Jeep Cherokee, manufactured in Belvidere, Ill. But Jeep is owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian company headquartered in London. Fiat rescued Chrysler from bankruptcy in 2009 and earlier this month made a commitment to invest globally in Jeep and Ram while Chrysler and Dodge will be lower-volume regional brands.I think Chrysler is going to continue to be relevant in the U.S.,Ž FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne said of the companys five-year strategic plan. Dont expect it to be a global brand.ŽGlobalization has diluted nationalism for automakers beyond the United States Big Three of FCA (formerly Chrysler), Ford and General Motors.Jaguar Land Rover is an iconic British brand owned by Tata Motors in India,Ž Wiesen-felder said. Volvo is a Swedish car company owned by Chinese company Geely. Does that mean Volvo is not a Swedish brand anymore? Our position is there is no clear answer.ŽThe American-made Index attempts to define where a car model comes from and where its revenue goes because its insightful for consumers.People have a good idea of what they want to buy, and will research things to dissuade them,Ž Wiesenfelder said. This is another data point.ŽA survey of 1,000 participants found that 71 per-cent believe buying American contributes significantly to the U.S. economy. The vast major-ity (82 percent) also believe buying American-made vehicles creates more jobs in the U.S. So is buying Volvo good for America?Yes, if youre buying the rede-signed S60 sedan. Volvo just opened its first plant in the U.S. on June 20 in Ridgeville, S.C. The Swedish brand owned by a Chinese multinational with an American factory invested $1.1 billion in the area just inland from the port city of Charleston. It makes the S60 and will employ up to 4,000 people to make the XC90 SUV in 2021.This proves the difficulty in defining American-made when it comes to brands. And even individual models are becoming less and less definitively American. Last year, tweaked the formula for its index because fewer vehicles were meeting the threshold of 75 percent domestic parts content.Twelve years ago when it started, over 60 vehicles quali-fied,Ž Wiesenfelder said. In 2016, we only had 8.ŽIn 2016, the Toyota Camry topped the list. In 2017, it was the Jeep Wrangler. The latter is an American icon. The former is an American best-seller. Both vehicles were redesigned for 2018, and neither vehicle made the top 10 this year.So it goes in the global manu-facturing era.Tesla is another American brand but only had about 50 to 55 percent domestic parts, which didnt make the cut for top 10, said Wiesenfelder.The new methodology is vari-able, based on the domestic parts content of the top 40 per-cent of the model years eligible vehicles. Excluded are low-volume models that sold under 2,500 units in the first quarter and all heavy-duty vehicles with a gross vehicle weight over 8,500 pounds, according to Kelsey Mays, senior consumer affairs editor at Mays said 114 models were eli-gible for the ranking this year. Of those 114, the 45 models with the highest percentage of domestic parts made the next cut for the five factors used in the rankings.Information for domestic parts content can be found through the American Automo-bile Labeling Act of 1992, which requires manufacturers to label three things: the percentage of U.S. equipment on the car; the percentage of man-hours by U.S. workers assembling it; and the name of any other coun-try where at least one-third of equipment originated. Cars. com added engine and transmission country of origin last year to give its index five data points to consider for economic impact.If consumers care about making car purchases that sup-port the U.S. economy, it means looking beyond the assembly location,Ž Wiesenfelder said.The exact formula for the index is kept a secret. The Detroit-made Chevrolet Volt ranked fifth, while the Chevy Corvette out of Bowling Green, Ky., ranked 10th. Americas best-selling vehicle, the Ford F-150 made in Missouri and Michigan, ranked ninth.Illinois was home to three of the top 10, including the Ford Taurus (fourth) and Ford Explorer (eighth) manufactured in Fords Chicago Assembly plant in the South Side neigh-borhood of Hegewisch.Its something for Illinoisans to be proud of,Ž Wiesenfelder said. is also headquartered in Chicago. Illinois is right in the middle of the country, so its great for distri-bution. And Chicago is the rail hub of the U.S. I dont know of a final assembly for an automaker that doesnt use rail. That works in our favor in Illinois.Ž HONDAFrom Page C1 The 2018 Buick LaCrosse comes with a Bose Centerpoint, 11-speaker surround sound audio system; head-up display; power panoramic moonroof; power rear sunshade; heated/ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel, 4G LTE onboard Wi-Fi, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

CALL 352-787-0600 OR VISIT DAILYCOMMERCIAL.COM HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR FRIDAY, JULY 6, 2018:This year you ow through life with more ease. You have an unusually strong drive, which sometimes takes you away from those you love and your home life. You feel rewarded by your accomplishments. If you are single, you have an unusual mix that could draw potential sweeties toward you. You could meet someone special anytime from now till your next birthday. If you are attached, the two of you are aware of the importance of your public image. You will love taking time off away from your hectic pace. ARIES pushes you to perform to your max.ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) You experience enough tension that you might decide to do something about the source of your angst. At rst, you might waiver back and forth until you come up with a good answer. A discussion could lead to thoughts you have not considered up to now. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) The past few days might have left you feeling less than great. You have been seeking a solution, but recognize that the matter is more complex than you had anticipated. A conversation with someone you see as intellectual opens up yet another possibility. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Zero in on what you would like to do. Realize that you can no longer ignore an invitation to join your friends. You will have to respond in some way that feels appropriate. Though a loved one might not be ecstatic about your choices, others will be. CANCER (JUNE 21JULY 22) Your emotional well-being could be jarred by a friend or loved one who might hurt you with a comment he or she makes. Ignore what is going on, if you can. You also will need to let go of any criticism. Avoid anyone who is in a sour mood. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) You could be reaching out for a possibility that no one but you thinks will happen. You are willing to risk failure, though very few people are. You see a need to restructure your life in some practical way. A surprise get-together will lift your spirits. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) One-on-one relating proves to be quite benecial, and allows you to open up to certain possibilities. A loved one might be quite different from you, but he or she likely has a similar way of seeing life. You can learn from this person. Take notes. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Dont insist on putting your ideas on the back burner. Make your desires a higher priority. Yes, it is good not to be too me-oriented, but at the same time you need to put yourself rst more often. Go with the moment, and you will be content. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You seem to be back to living your life as you normally do. You could wonder what is making a friend so feisty. This person might be full of energy. It is benecial to recognize that you could be a trigger to this person. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Someone could try to talk you out of your current plans. The reasons this person gives you are legitimate, but you have already made a commitment, and you plan on sticking to it. See how you feel after a discussion with a close loved one. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22JAN. 19) You have a greater inuence on your family and inner circle than you realize. You are in the process of some dramatic changes that could take a toll on various people. Lighten up and focus on what is positive and fun in your life. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) You might feel as if you are unstoppable. You feel much differently from how you have in quite a while. Others seem receptive to your comments and opinions. Everyone seems to be asking for your advice and feedback. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Your emotional nature has been out of whack lately. Though you still feel strongly about certain matters, you can relax and enjoy yourself. Go with the moment, but stick to your budget: It could spiral out of control quickly if you are not careful. | Friday, July 6, 2018 C5 DEAR ABBY: I'm 52. My mom died when I was 11. It wasn't until I reached my mid-20s that I realized I have no memories of her, and few memories of my childhood before I was 11. Dad and I lived a few hours away from family, and after Mom passed, no one spoke about her much. I imagine that was because it was painful. She was only 29. I never cried over her death, and I don't remember missing her as a child or teenager. There are only a handful of photos of her and a couple of passed-down stories. I understand that people block memories of traumatic events and things they don't want to remember. I remember the night it happened in detail, but not the memory of her. I have seen a few psychiatrists at different times during the course of my life to deal with stress and daily life issues, and while they were aware of my background, we never really got into this. For some reason it's bothering me more and more now. I want to remember my mother. When I ask her friends and relatives about her, I get general answers -she was a nice person, very loving and crafty, etc. How does someone get their memories back? I've heard hypnosis can help, but I'm not sure. Do you have any advice? -SON LEFT BEHIND DEAR SON: Many people are reluctant to talk about family members who have passed on because they are afraid it will be painful for the listener. Perhaps if you approached your relatives and explained why you are asking for more details, it might jog some memories. However, if that doesn't bear fruit, then talking with a mental health professional about the fact that this is increasingly bothering you would be a good idea. That person can recommend hypnosis if it's appropriate.DEAR ABBY: I am a divorced 53-year-old woman. My children are grown, and I have a good career in HR and payroll. It's not my dream job, though. I applied to and was accepted into a Master of Architecture program, but I just found out they will accept only 12 credits from my associate's degree, which means I will need ve years of full-time college to achieve my dream, while working full-time, of course. I'll be 58 when I graduate and probably should be planning for retirement, not taking on $100,000 in student loans. Should I abandon this dream? Have I run out of time to take on such a lofty goal? Or should I just sit back and relax and travel now that my kids are grown? By the way, my retirement goal was age 72. -NOT SURE IN MICHIGAN DEAR NOT SURE: What you are contemplating takes a great deal of stamina. Some individuals in their 50s are up for the challenge, others not so much. Before you commit, talk to a guidance counselor at the school to explore what opportunities might be available to an older graduate with no work experience in the eld. Would you still plan to retire at 72? Your student loans could take many more years to pay off if you don't quickly become a high-earning architect, so consider your next move carefully and receive as much unbiased counsel as you can before making a nal decision.
