His Environmental Protection Agency chief just quit amid mounting scandals. And hes about to meet with an adversary accused of meddling in the 2016 election. But President Donald Trump has every confidence that on Monday night, the nations attention will be right where he wants it.After more than a week of pitched speculation, Trump will go on prime-time television to reveal his choice to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, selecting a conservative designed to rally Republican voters in a midterm election year. And with that, the optics-obsessed president will be in his comfort zone „ taking center stage in a massive show.Nearly 18 months after Trump set in motion Justice Neil Gorsuchs nomination, the reality star-turned-president is more seasoned, more embittered and increasingly comfortable exerting his will over the machinery of govern-ment and his own staff. His upcoming SupremeŽ show is the latest example of Trumps push to remake the federal bench with young conservative judges, a crusade he believes will energize GOP voters con-cerned about the state of the judiciary.Trumps Supreme televisionPresident Donald Trump speaks Jan. 31, 2017 in the East Room of the White House in Washington to announce Judge Neil Gorsuch (standing with his wife Louise) as his nominee for the Supreme Court. [CAROLYN KASTER/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE] Trump relishes prime-time reveal for court choice By Ricardo Alonso-ZaldivarThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ The Trump administration is freezing payments under an ObamacareŽ program that protects insurers with sicker patients from financial losses, a move expected to add to pre-mium increases next year.At stake are billions in payments to insurers with sicker customers. The latest administration action could disrupt the Affordable Care Act, the health care law that has withstood President Donald Trumps efforts to completely repeal it.In a weekend announce-ment, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said the admin-istration is acting because of conflicting court ruling in lawsuits filed by some smaller insurers who question whether they are being fairly treated under the program.Trump takes swipe at health program By Josh BoakThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ From the safety of a resilient U.S. econ-omy, President Donald Trump lit the fuse Friday on a high-risk trade war with China.History suggests that a cycle of tariffs and retaliations can eventually choke economic growth. But for now, employers, investors and U.S. consumers are weighing the perils of a pro-longed rift between the worlds two largest economies against a far more positive backdrop: Americas healthiest job market in years. Evidently confident despite the risks ahead, U.S. employers have added jobs this year at a robust monthly average of 214,500. Many businesses say theyve reached the point where they cant even find enough people to fill jobs. Unemploy-ment is at a low 4 percent.All that hiring is occurring in an economic expansion that is entering its 10th year „ the sec-ond-longest streak on record. The U.S. financial markets, while wary of the trade fights Trump has pursued, have swung this year between modest gains and losses but have avoided any sustained panic.The robustness of the econ-omy „ and its stronger than it has been in decades „ inoculates Trumps trade policy moves from closer scrutiny,Ž said Daniel Ikenson, director for trade policy studies at the libertarian Cato Institute.Most employers see the economy as having achieved a comfortable cruising speed and have kept hiring. In surveys of business sentiment, they have expressed concerns about the tariffs, but their wariness has yet to disrupt their business plans. The United States added 213,000 jobs in June, and an influx of new jobseekers, seem-ingly optimistic about their prospects but not finding work right away, lifted the unem-ployment rate from 3.8 percent to 4 percent, the government reported Friday.Trumps economic gamble: Job gains versus trade war By Nomaan MerchantAssociated PressCOVINGTON, Ky. „ It had taken a decade for Brandon Tomas Tomas to establish a life in America: a wife, a steady job and five American-born children. It took 20 seconds for that life to be taken away.An immigration officer waiting for someone else spotted him and asked an innocuous question: Cmo ests?Ž How are you? Then he asked whether Tomas had papers. In a flash, the 33-year-old Guatemalan was in handcuffs, in the custody of U.S. Immigration and Cus-toms Enforcement, headed to jail and probable deportation.Many miles away from the U.S.-Mexico border, authori-ties are separating families in raids that target immigrants at home and at work, conducted in the name of public safety. Most of these raids go unnoticed outside of the com-munities affected, but they are integral to the Trump admin-istrations broader crackdown on immigration that is leading to more arrests, particularly of people with no criminal records.LIVES TORN APARTHunger, fear, desperation: What came of an ICE raidFranco Perez cries as he runs downstairs from his familys apartment in Covington, Ky., on April 28 looking for his father, Edgar Perez Ramirez, who had walked outside for a moment.

[DIEU NALIO CHERY/AP] By Tassanee Vejpongsa and Kaweewit KaewjindaThe Associated PressMAE SAI, Thailand „ Expert divers Sunday rescued four of 12 boys from a flooded cave in northern Thailand where they were trapped with their soccer coach for more than two weeks, as a dangerous and complicated plan unfolded amid heavy rain and the threat of rising water underground.Eight of boys and the coach remained inside the Tham Luang Nang Non cave complex as authorities paused the international effort until Monday to replenish air tanks along the treacherous exit route. But the success of the initial evacuation raised hopes that all will be out soon, although officials said could it take up to four days to complete.The operation went much better than expected,Ž said Chiang Rai acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn, who is overseeing the mission.He told reporters that four boys were brought out and taken to the hospital in the town of Chiang Rai, the pro-vincial capital, for evaluation, and the next phase of the oper-ation will resume after about 10-20 hours.The names of the rescued boys were not released.His announcement, at a news conference more than an hour after helicopters and ambulances were seen rushing from the cave area, drew cheers and applause.Narongsak had dubbed Sunday to be D-dayŽ as the complicated effort was launched in the morning.He said 13 foreign divers and five Thai navy SEALs were taking part in the key leg of the rescue: taking the boys from where they have been sheltering and through dark, tight and twisting passage-ways filled with muddy water and strong currents.Two divers were to accom-pany each of the boys, all of whom have been learning to dive only since July 2, when the first searchers found them.Cave rescue experts con-sider an underwater escape to be a last resort, especially with people untrained in diving.The death Friday of a former Thai navy SEAL, Saman Gunan, underscored the risks. The diver, the first fatality of the rescue effort, was working in a volunteer capacity and died on a mission to place oxygen canisters along the route.But Narongsak said earlier that mild weather and falling water levels in recent days had created optimal conditions for an underwater evacuation. Those conditions wont last if the rain resumes, he said.After the four boys were removed from the cave, heavy rain started falling.Authorities have said the monsoons could cause water to rise in the cave. That along with dwindling oxygen levels, added to the urgency of getting the team out. Earlier efforts to pump water out of the cave have been set back by heavy downpours.Narongsak said Saturday that experts told him new rain could shrink the unflooded space where the boys are shel-tering to just 10 square meters (108 square feet).The next phase of the opera-tion would start Monday after rescue teams replenish the supply of oxygen tanks along the route to ensure the safety of the journey, which takes several hours.On Sunday night, Thai navy SEALs posted a celebra-tory note on their Facebook page, saying: Have sweet dreams everyone. Good night. Hooyah.ŽThe boys and their coach, whose team is known as the Wild Boars, became stranded when they were exploring the cave after a practice game on June 23.Monsoon flooding cut off their escape route and prevented rescuers from finding them for almost 10 days.The ordeal has riveted Thai-land and captured the worlds attention. The search and rescue operation has involved dozens of international experts and rescuers, including a U.S. military team. Elon Musks Space X rocket company plans to send a tiny kid-sized submarineŽ in case its needed. A spokesman for Musks Boring Co. tunneling unit, which has four engineers at the cave, said in an email Sunday that Thai officials had requested the device and that divers have determined it could potentially help the chil-dren through narrow, flooded cave passageways.Musk said on Twitter the aluminum sub would be tested until Sunday midafternoon California time before being placed on a 17-hour flight to Thailand. He posted a video of a diver testing the device in a pool.President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday: The U.S. is working very closely with the Government of Thailand to help get all of the children out of the cave and to safety. Very brave and talented people!ŽTo ensure a clear path for getting evacuees to the hospital and to safeguard their privacy, authorities ordered the media to move away from the cave before the boys came out.The boys sounded calm and reassuring in handwrit-ten notes to their families that were made public Saturday. The notes were sent out with divers who made an 11-hour, back-and-forth journey.One of the boys, identified as Tun, wrote: Mom and Dad, please dont worry, I am fine. Ive told Yod to get ready to take me out for fried chicken. With love.ŽDont be worried,Ž wrote another boy, Mick. I miss everyone. Grandpa, Uncle, Mom, Dad and siblings, I love you all. Im happy being here inside, the navy SEALS have taken good care. Love you all.ŽOne particularly touching note from another boy said: Im doing fine, but the air is a little cold, but dont worry. Although, dont forget to set up my birthday party.ŽIn a letter of his own, coach Ekapol Chanthawong apologized to the boys parents for the ordeal.To the parents of all the kids, right now the kids are all fine, the crew are taking good care. I promise I will care for the kids as best as possible. I want to say thanks for all the support and I want to apologize to the parents,Ž he wrote.Four rescued from Thai caveNine remain inside a er risky operation; o cials say evacuation may take up to four days to completeAn ambulance leaves the cave hours after operations began to rescue the trapped youth soccer players and their coach, Sunday in Mae Sai, Chiang Rai province, in northern Thailand.

Their hard, spiny shells would split thumbs open and take forever to peel.Thompsons challenge to his children lasted for months, until his oldest daughter, a teenage Lauri-lee, had the idea to split them open, cut out the sand veins and broil them like lobsters. They were delicious.That was 50 years ago. The Thompson familys discovery led to the popularization of a cuisine that today is served all along the Florida Atlantic coast „ most famously at a restau-rant owned by Thompsons family in Titusville.We call him the Daddy of the rock shrimp industry,Ž said Bob Jones, executive director of the Southeastern Fisheries Association. He was the only one who saw the opportunity to get the meat out so you could eat them because they were so hard.Ž €€€It all began with Thompsons quixotic dream of building a 73-foot fiberglass shrimp boat.

At this point in class, participants are using non-sharp swords. They switch to sharp ones for the actual cutting practice. [LINDA CHARLTON / CORRESPONDENT] By Linda CharltonCorrespondentCLERMONT „ A couple of times a week, in a little hap-kido school in a little strip mall in the older part of Clermont, a different set of martial arts practitioners moves in, and the location becomes Lake Countys traditional Japanese sword school „ technically, the Clermont dojo of the Sei-zankai Toyama Ryu, based in Japan. Its one of only a few in the country and fewer still in the state, and Mike Soriero is the sensei (teacher).There are six students at this point, ranging in age from 15 to 50-something, and every Thursday and Saturday they are in there, warming up their bodies and their minds, practicing kata (forms), and cutting the tatami mats, wetted down and rolled up, that serve as the classroom substitute for human flesh.Its technically a killing art,Ž Soriero said, but its more mastering yourself, to make yourself better and better.ŽSoriero has been studying various forms of martial arts for 45 years, and traditional Japanese sword fighting for 24. Hes attracted by the dis-cipline, and by the connection to an art form „ the sword fighting of the Samurai „ that dates back hundreds of years.The sword fighting tradi-tion was stripped down and codified prior to WWII, and taught in the Toyama military academy in Japan as a form of close combat.

Hamlin & Hilbish Funeral Directors, Eustis, FLFORT MYERSMan charged with having handgun at airportAuthorities say a Florida man tried to take a loaded handgun through airport security.The News-Press reports that 23-year-old Joshua Lee Smith was arrested Thursday at Southwest Florida Inter-national Airport in Fort Myers and charged with carrying a concealed weapon.Officers responded to a security checkpoint after TSA agents noticed the .40-caliber handgun while screening a black backpack. An arrest report says the chamber was empty, but an inserted magazine had nine rounds.The report says Smith eventually admitted to having the gun during a secondary screening. He told officers he had taken a concealed weapons class but hadnt had the money to complete the process.Smith was released from jail Friday with an Aug. 6 court date. Jail records didnt list an attorney. BRIEFSFrom Page A3Thompson, a taciturn man with an inventive mind, was a boat builder by trade in Titusville, which by then had gone from a citrus and fishing town to a bedroom com-munity for NASA workers laboring at the neighboring Kennedy Space Center to land a man on the moon.His staff worked on the boat for a year. But it was built on spec, and there were no buyers. So, Thompson turned to shrimp fishing to show off the boats prowess, and began catching buckets of the inedible rock shrimp.He asked his four children, Laurilee, Sherri, Tom and Tim, to help him find a way to cook them.When I figured it out finally: We were sitting there in our misery one day, wishing we were playing pool, and riding horses, and not looking at big piles of stupid rock shrimp on the table,Ž said Laurilee Thompson, now 65.Laurilee suddenly grabbed a steak knife and began cutting a half-dozen rock shrimp open along their bottom edges. Her mother, Mary Jean, melted butter, poured it over them, and stuck the shrimp in the broiler. And then the whole family gathered around and stared for the two minutes it took them to cook. The rock shrimps tails curled up and the flesh pulled away from the shell, just like a lobster. They pulled them out of the oven and tasted them.That was probably the biggest, Eureka! moment of all of our lifetimes,Ž Laurilee Thompson said. €€€Rodney Thompson enlisted the neighborhood kids to form an assembly line in his wifes kitchen after school each day. One kid would crack open the shrimp, another would wash it and others would pack the shrimp into boxes, which were delivered to dozens of bars and grills up and down the Indian River. The rock shrimp were salty, which the bar owners liked because their patrons, who fished off their docks, would eat them and buy more beer.The demand quickly outgrew the capacity of the family kitchen, so Thompson rented space at Port Canaveral and started hiring grown-ups. Using a sewing machine motor and a vacuum cleaner belt, he also built mechanized splitters that could crack the rock shrimps hard shell. The Thompson children returned to their play. Rock shrimp span from the Atlantic coast of the southern U.S. states into the Gulf of Mexico as far as Mexicos Yucatan peninsula. Their Spanish name is camarones de piedra. Considered no more than bycatch before the Thompson familys efforts in the late 1960s, the annual haul „ still predominantly caught in Florida waters „ grew to thousands of tons a year by the 1980s.Thompson, meanwhile, continued to build boats through the 1970s. But he overextended himself, and when interest rates soared and a recession hit in the early 1980s, he was forced to sell his businesses. Thompson lost all three of his boats, two restaurants and the shrimp-processing plant.€€€Not long afterward, Rodney and Mary Jean Thompson started over with a tiny diner. Their restaurant, Dixie Cross-roads,Ž struggled. For three years, customers wanted rock shrimp but Thompson couldnt serve them because he didnt have a boat and couldnt get a loan.One day, friend and fisherman Sam Vona invited Thompson down to his port office and showed him a freezer with a padlock. He told Thompson that the rock shrimp inside were his and that the freezer always would be full. He knew Thompson couldnt pay him back, but he would keep track and Thompson could repay him when he got back on his feet. They were really good friends and my dad had a lot of faith in Rodney doing what he did and getting a market for that shrimp,Ž said Vonas daughter, Cissy Shipley.Thompson installed shrimp splitters in Dixie Crossroads kitchen and started selling rock shrimp off the menu. Lines into the restaurant started winding around the building, with two-hour waits.Over the decades, he built additions to the res-taurant, which today seats 465 people. NASA officials used to bring astronaut families there before space shuttle launches. In recent years, the restaurant and a separate seafood retailer run by the family have each had around $6 mil-lion in sales annually.Thompson died a year-and-a-half ago. His daughters, Laurilee and Sherri, run the businesses today. Though Vona died in 2012, the Thompsons will never forget his kind-ness in helping to launch one of Floridas best-known restaurants. Look where it is now,Ž Laurilee Thompson said. We sell a lot of rock shrimp.Ž SHRIMPFrom Page A3The fast-moving wild-fire started late June 24 and reportedly stemmed from a prescribed fire ordered by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-vation Commission. The blaze claimed the homes of 36 families and torched about 820 acres.Florida Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis has sent adjusters to East-point to help residents file a partial claim settle-ment for up to $5,000 per household to help with immediate needs. As of Friday, 16 of those claims had been paid.Displaced residents have been relying on the generosity of others in the community for shelter and supplies. Many in the community have donated food, money and clothing.Its really tough,Ž said Alexa Shannon, who lost the home she had shared with her five children. There are no words for it, really ... horrible, dev-astating, heartbreaking. And it still smells out here like fire and destruction.ŽDominick Rotellas house was spared from the flames due to a fire line cut into his front yard. He has been allowing neigh-bors who lost their homes to camp on his property and use his laundry facil-ities while they wait for more assistance.They havent got these people no kind of help for a place to stay,Ž Rotella said. Some kind of sup-port would just warm your heart up a little bit.Ž WILDFIREFrom Page A3 Meteorologist Marshall Alexander told The Associated Press that officials were worried about people still living with tarps on their roofs after Hurricane Maria slammed into Dominica as a Category 5 storm last year, killing dozens of people.We are in a vulnerable state,Ž he said.Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Chris formed off the Carolinas, and the U.S. hurricane center said it was likely to grow into a hurricane while heading to the northeast, roughly parallel to the coast. It wasnt projected to directly threaten land over the next few days, though forecasters said it could kick up danger-ous surf and rip tides.In the Caribbean, a tropical storm watch was up for Dominica and long lines were reported at grocery stores on several islands as people shopped for food and water.We cant take chances with weather,Ž Jeffrey Xavier, manager of the Mr. Clean Bed & Break-fast in Dominica, said in a phone interview. There was a lot of buying.ŽPuerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello said at a news conference Sunday afternoon that the island could experience power outages when the storms remnants passed over on Monday. He also urged people without sturdy roofs to move in with relatives or one of 24 government shelters that have opened. More than 1,500 power customers remain in the dark more than nine months after Maria, and some 60,000 people still have only tarps for roofs.Im praying for all the brothers who are still living under a plastic roof,Ž said Alfonso Lugo in the southeastern Puerto Rico town of Humacao. Theyre the ones who are suffering the most now. Theyre the ones who have been forgotten.ŽLugo lost his roof and two walls to Maria and was waiting for volunteers to secure his new roof before Beryl.The hurricane center said the storm still had maximum sustained winds of 45 mph late Sunday afternoon.

PAGE 9 | Monday, July 9, 2018 A9The Clermont dojo and its sister dojo in Orlando are official branches of one of those schools in Japan.Soriero became acquainted with the art form during a chance meeting with an old col-lector of Japanese swords at a Tampa-area martial arts show. Soriero expressed an interest in the weapons, and the col-lector told him where he needed to go if wanted to learn how to use them.Soriero was directed to Bob Elder in Orlando, who Soriero credits with bringing the Toyama Ryu to this country. Speaking of the art, and of the Clermont school, Soriero said, Its not something that attracts everybody. We dont generally have a lot of kids, because we have live (sharp) blades.Ž Which is not to say that new students are handed what Soriero refers to as 28-inch razor blades.Ž They are not. They start out with wooden swords, then to non-sharp metal swords. Provided they demonstrate the ability, judgment and responsi-bility, they graduate to live blades. In a discipline were one wrong move could be life-changing, safety is paramount.Dale Price is one of the adult sword students. She became exposed to the art through her husband, Gary, who is also a student in Clermont.My husband, he trains in Samurai sword fight-ing,Ž Price said. I decided to do an observation. It was intimidating at first, but it became a challenge for me to consider doing what they were doing. After a long time, I decided to try. I started, and I havent stopped since. Partially it was wow, what are these people doing. Its the unexpectedness. Its not something I ever expected to be doing. It still has that factor. I dont think that will ever change.ŽIts amazing and hum-bling at the same time,Ž adds fellow student Tom Marin.Jose Ramos is perhaps the next new student at the school. He just happened to see the class at work through the storefront windows on Saturday, and he just had to come in.Its beautiful,Ž he said, speaking to himself. That is really cool.ŽThe school in Clermont has been open for five years. For more information visit its website at SWORDSFrom Page A3 Over two days in five towns across northern Kentucky, agents staked out homes before sunup, stopped men heading for jobs, went to warehouses like the one where Tomas had worked for more than a year. By ICEs accounting, 20 men and two women were picked up.Quietly, a crisis unfolded.Families barely getting by lost their only bread-winner. Left-behind wives didnt know how to hire a lawyer or how they would afford bonds. Volunteers passed out cash so that bills got paid. Children needed meals, clothes and rides to school, and one school con-sultant says three students came to her, talking about suicide.It was still dark out in Decem ber when a car pulled up as Edgar Perez Ramirez headed for work. At first, the ICE agents asked about someone else. Then they inquired about his status, learned he was in the U.S. illegally and took him to jail.Immediately after, his partner, Carmelinda, stopped leaving their apartment to buy food. Their 4-year-old son, Franco, stayed home from preschool for 15 days because Carmelinda was afraid to take him. At first, she told the boy that his father had gone away for work. Eventually, Franco started to ask why his father hadnt come home.Six weeks later, an immigration judge agreed to release Perez on bond, because he didnt have a criminal record. His brothers and friends chipped in for the $2,000.Most days, Carmelinda stays shut up in the apartment with their 1-year-old daughter, too scared still to go to the gro-cery store or ride the bus. Perez finds work where he can, but, he says, We con-tinue with fear.ŽOperations like this one are not new; ICE conducted at least four in Kentucky under the Obama admin-istration, which in its early years arrested far more people annually than the Trump administration has so far. By the end of the Obama administration, ICE was instructed to prioritize arresting people who had committed serious crimes, were considered national secu-rity threats, or had been ordered recently to leave the country for immigra-tion violations.An executive order issued by Trump changed those priorities, effectively declaring any immigrant in the U.S. illegally subject to arrest.Do I feel bad about the plight of some of these people?Ž Thomas Homan, ICEs acting director until his recent retirement, said in an interview with The Associated Press. I cer-tainly do. Im human. Im a father. But I have a job to do.ŽBut advocates ques-tion whether the raid was worth it, given the suffer-ing they see even now. We dont know whats going to happen in the future, because were still dealing with four or five families that really dont have the person whos a breadwinner at home,Ž says Don Sherman of the local Immigrant Dignity Coalition, who found lawyers to take cases and handed out grocery store gift cards to affected families.By his count, those arrested had 19 children, most of them U.S. citizens.Most of the families have little hope of being reunited here, so they have started thinking about a future outside of the U.S.Alma Vazquez is Tomas wife. Though hes from Guatemala, shes from Mexico. They met working at a Brazilian restaurant.Their five children have never visited Mexico or Guatemala. In either country, theyd likely be marks for gangs that assume people returning from the United States have money. But for Vazquez, getting her hus-band back and keeping her family together is all that matters.I tell them its our turn,Ž she says, because your father is going to go. If you want to be with your father, you have to go to him.Ž TORNFrom Page A1An employee sorts through boxes at the Win.It America warehouse in Walton, Ky., on May 1.

A10 Monday, July 9, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comHelping propel growth, business and consumers have received a $136 billion stimulus this year from tax cuts. Quarterly economic growth is on track to be the strongest since 2014. Housing starts are up 11 percent so far this year.From this position of strength, President Donald Trump is gambling that he can deploy tariffs to his advantage even though they will inflict some pain on businesses and con-sumers that backed him in 2016. The Trump teams calculation appears to be that foreign countries have no choice but to trade with the worlds largest economy and will ulti-mately have to yield.The president hopes to extract concessions not only from China but also from such longstanding allies as the European Union, Canada and Mexico. His stated goal is to reduce U.S. trade imbalances and create more U.S. manufacturing jobs.So far, the economy can absorb the costs of the new tariffs, including separate steel and aluminum import taxes, without suffering a crushing hit. But the pain could intensify. Trump has threatened a 20 percent tariff on roughly $50 billion of auto imports from the European Union. Those tariffs could lead to reciprocal taxes from other countries that could hurt U.S. automakers and lead to layoffs.Trump has warned that he may eventually impose tariffs on more than $500 billion of Chinese imports. He said in a speech in Mon-tana last week that other countries will agree to his terms „ and if they dont, well actually do better.ŽOur allies, in many cases, were worse than our enemies,Ž the presi-dent said. We opened our country to their goods, but they put up massive barri-ers to keep our products and our goods the hell out of their country because they didnt want that competition.ŽFrom soybean farmers and pork producers to the motorcycle manufacturer Harley Davidson, numer-ous American exporters are facing upheavals from the tariffs. GAMBLEFrom Page A1The so-called risk adjustmentŽ program takes payments from insurers with healthier customers and redistributes that money to companies with sicker enrollees. Payments for 2017 are $10.4 billion. No taxpayer subsidies are involved.The idea behind the program is to remove the financial incentive for insurers to cherry pickŽ healthier customers. The government uses a similar approach with Medicare private insurance plans and the Medicare prescription drug benefit. Major insurer groups said Saturday the administrations action interferes with a program thats working well.The Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, whose members are a mainstay of Affordable Care Act cover-age, said it was extremely disappointedŽ with the administrations action.The Trump administrations move will significantly increase 2019 premiums for millions of individuals and small busi-ness owners and could result in far fewer health plan choices,Ž associa-tion president Scott Serota said in a statement. It will undermine Americans access to affordable coverage, particularly those who need medical care the most.ŽSerota noted that the payments are required by law and said he believes the administration has the legal authority to continue making them despite the court cases. He warned of turmoilŽ as insurers final-ize their rates for 2019.Americas Health Insur-ance Plans, the main health insurance industry trade group, said in a statement that it is very discouragedŽ by the Trump administrations decision to freeze payments.Costs for taxpayers will rise as the federal gov-ernment spends more on premium subsidies,Ž the group said.Rumors that the Trump administration would freeze payments were cir-culating late last week. But the Saturday announce-ment via email was unusual for such a major step.The administration argued in its announcement that its hands were tied by conflicting court rulings in New Mexico and Massachusetts.Medicare and Medicaid Administrator Seema Verma said the Trump administration was disap-pointed by a New Mexico court ruling that questioned the workings of the risk program for insurers.The administration has asked the court to reconsider its ruling, and hopes for a prompt resolution that allows (the government) to prevent more adverse impacts on Americans who receive their insurance in the individual and small group markets,Ž she said.More than 10 million people buy individual health insurance plans through and state insurance marketplaces. The vast majority of those customers receives taxpayer subsidies under the Obama-era health law and would be shielded from premium increases next year. HEALTHFrom Page A1Trump is largely follow-ing the same playbook this time as when he successfully rolled out Gorsuchs nomination in January 2017. White House aides have strict instructions to keep information under wraps so Trump himself can make the big reveal. The president was glee-ful when Gorsuchs name didnt leak out early.So was that a sur-prise?Ž Trump said, after announcing his decision.Still, there are differ-ences this time. In the last go-around, the White House relied heavily on outside consultants to push Gorsuch over the finish line. Despite a staff exodus that has left key vacancies across the West Wing, the White House this time is retain-ing more control over the nomination and confir-mation processes. A war room of communications, legal and research staff has been assembled in the Eisenhower Exec-utive Office Building to promote and defend the nominee.Trump has reveled in building up suspense in the days leading up to his speech, offering fragments of information here and there but strategically keeping the guessing game alive. Drawn from a public list of 25 candidates approved by conservative groups, the presidents top contenders include federal appeals court judges Brett Kavanaugh and Raymond Kethledge, with judges Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman still considered in the mix. The White House has been preparing confirmation materials on all four.Speaking to reporters Thursday on Air Force One, Trump was coy.I dont want to say the four,Ž he said. But I have it down to four.ŽPast announcements of Supreme Court nom-inees were not made in prime time. President Barack Obama announced the selection of Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor from the Wh ite House during the day.More than 33 million viewers watched Trump announce Gorsuch last year. The audience edged the 31.3 million who watched Obamas final State of the Union address but was dwarfed by the 56.5 million who saw Obama announce the killing of Osama bin Laden in 2011, among the decades most-watched presidential speeches.The theatrics surrounding Trumps court selection should come as no surprise. His presidency is rife with made-for-TV moments. With Trump, a Cabinet meeting becomes a freewheeling speech to the nation, and a walk to Marine One turns into an improm ptu news confer-ence. He recently strode out the door of the White House to participate in a Fox News live broadcast from the driveway. And his Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was staged as a massive media event. SUPREMEFrom Page A1

PAGE 11 | Monday, July 9, 2018 A11 It is about time. It took months of revelation after damning revelation for President Donald Trump to finally remove Scott Pruitt from the top job at the Environmental Protection Agency. Pruitt joins the ranks of former Trump administration officials forced to resign in disgrace, raising questions about why Trump hired them in the first place. At this point, a decent president would ask himself what he has been doing wrong. The explanation for Pruitts curious longevity in office, seemingly impervious to widespread media coverage of his ethical lapses, could be seen in an over-thetop resignation letter in which he described Trumps presidency as nothing short of Gods providence.Ž His obsequiousness helped keep him in Trumps good graces, and his continued fawning is likely calculated to maintain his appeal to pro-Trump GOP voters. This says nothing good about Pruitt, who combines ravenous ambition with a faulty moral compass, or about the president, who still appears to value loyalty, whether based in sincerity or cynicism, over the public good. Pruitt blamed his departure on unrelenting attacks on me personally.Ž Yet the remarkable thing about Pruitts story is his relentless petty corruption. In less than two years in Trumps Cabinet, he took a generous rental deal on a condo owned by a major lobbyists wife, enlisted government employees to do menial personal tasks for him, obtained expensive 24-hour security, pressed to fly first-class and by private jet, saw extravagant office upgrades, used his position to try to get his wife a lucrative job and took extremely expensive foreign trips only glancingly related to his public responsibilities. Some staffers who objected to Pruitts waste were punished. Now EPA Deputy Administrator Andrew Wheeler will fill in while the president finds a new leader for the agency. Wheeler is a longtime Washington insider unlikely to commit ethical mistakes on Pruitts scale. But anyone hoping for a broader change in direction at the EPA will have to keep waiting. Though Wheeler previously served on the EPAs professional staff, he spent years working for Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., an arch-climate denier, and as a coal lobbyist. His most prominent former client, coal magnate Robert Murray, is an aggressive opponent of important air-pollution rules that the Obama EPA tried to impose and that Pruitt began the process of ripping up. There is little doubt Wheeler will try to finish the job. The New York Times reported Thursday that the EPA is poised to propose a comprehensive rollback of regulations that would require large cuts in greenhouse-gas emissions from existing power plants, a huge source of planet-warming emissions. In place of rules that would have mandated that the electricity system as a whole become steadily cleaner, the EPA would only call for small changes at individual power plants. Along with other regulatory changes on their way or already complete, this would represent a near-surrender on the part of the federal government on the issue of climate change. Trump appears more concerned about what Fox News will say about his presidency in the next hour than what the history books will say in years to come. But if he cares about his legacy, he should choose a new EPA administrator who will address the urgent climate and other environmental issues the country faces. The Washington PostANOTHER OPINIONPruitt is gone, but the environment is still at risk ANOTHER OPINION OPINIONSteve Skaggs | Publisher Tom McNiff | Executive Editor Whitney Lehnecker | Digital Editor, Lifestyles Editor Tom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250tom.mcniff@dailycommercial.comU.S. immigration under Republicans is a skewed outof-balance policy where perception becomes elevated reality. Greed and malice rule the day. Private prison investment and warehouse detention rental profits made off of childrens suffering are justified by either truly believing or just plain using, the God spoke to meŽ explanation. And, of course, how does one argue with Gods plan? It is the quintessential argument used to shut down any debate. And, as one nation under God, the United States should be the moral conscience for the world. But instead, in a deliberate divide and conquer atmosphere, we no longer stand united, even on principled ethics issues. Listening to people spout repetitive GOP talking points, of which there are many, I give you a few of my favorites: € Inner city school children are all disrespectful, poorly raised, clearly immature and they take ADHD medication „ for free.Ž While pondering that statement, and its lack of understanding, I think to myself, Welcome to every teachers classroom!Ž € Another updated talking point is that the Statue of Liberty is archaic and we should not take in asylumseekers because this is a different time. Immigrants are instantly labeled criminals who we must fear and who would never fit into our privileged society at this time in our history. So, let me go back in time and introduce you to some of my Irish ancestors. € Another doozy of a GOP narrative is blaming Obama or Hillary. This one is getting pretty old and lame. Anyway, growing up, my dad always told me that when you blame others its because you lack the fortitude to do the job yourself. € To culminate with my all time favorite: When a supporter of the President randomly walking past me says, Trump is doing a great job, isnt he?Ž I like to reply, "Ill answer that question with a question „ what planet do you live on?Ž Americans most certainly understand what is at stake when a child is separated from a parent and goes missing. When receiving an Amber Alert, we respond with imm ediate action. And, that same action is no different for a refugee or asylum-seekers child. We all want our children to be strong in mind and body, responsible members of society, and above all else, safe and protected. Intentionally separating children from parents or family members for a drama reality show policy plan that revolves around vindictive hate and vengeful spite is a moral issue and one that Americans will not tolerate. A mid 20th century political standard-bearer and first lady at a time when the world was divided and torn apart by bigotry and hate, Eleanor Roosevelt spoke these profound words of wisdom after visiting a Japanese internment camp at Gila River, Arizona in 1943. We have no common race in this country but we have an ideal to which all of us are loyal. We cannot progress if we look down on any group of people because of race or religion. We retain the right to lead our individual lives as we please, but we can only do so if we grant to others the freedoms that we wish for ourselves.Ž And, for the record, a million morally bereft Corey Lewandowskis womp wompsŽ cant hold a candle to just one heartfelt hug! Vicki Bush lives in Lady Lake.ANOTHER OPINIONHas the US lost its moral conscience? Ben Carson grew up in public housing, received government assistance, and devoted his career as a surgeon to the people of Baltimore. Now the agency he runs, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, is proposing divisive cuts from the top down on the people who need help the most. Through the Making Affordable Housing Work Act of 2018,Ž Dr. Carson wants to kick the ladder out from underneath millions of seniors, persons with disabilities and working moms. The TrumpCarson HUD Bill will triple minimum monthly rents (from $50 to $150) on residents who have little or no income. It will require residents to pay a greater percentage of their incomes toward rent and end deductions of large medical expenses before calculating rents. These cuts will increase evictions and homelessness at the same time that the Salvation Armys Booth House, one of the Baltimores largest shelters for families with children, is closing. I am one of the many residents of Baltimore who rely on HUD-assisted housing to get by. I am putting my experience to work to create grassroots change, and I am writing to share why these cuts are a big step in the wrong direction. I have worked most of my life on my feet in restaurants and for caterers at the Baltimore City Convention Center. The work was hard, but I was proud that I was able to help support myself and my family. After I was diagnosed with a medical condition in my feet that reduces my mobility, it became more difficult for me to move around and keep working. I was wrongly denied disability benefits. I am looking for a job, but who will hire a 61 year old who has no college degree and cannot walk that well? Dr. Carson suggests that increasing my rent will make me self-sufficient that it will finally push me to get a living wage job that does not exist for someone like me. The stress of a potential rent hike for me and for my neighbors who rely on HUD assistance causes me to lose sleep. As it is, I get by on food stamps and meal programs. Im also angry. Donald Trump just passed a giant tax cut that goes mostly to wealthy people and corporations. And you want me to foot the bill? Hospitals find asthma hot spots more profitable to neglect than fix It is my experience that when you help people meet their basic needs, most respond by working to better their lives and the lives of their children. My own son just graduated from Coppin State University with a bachelors degree, and he is giving back to the community working in youth development and education. I couldnt be more proud. We should be investing to help people meet basic needs like housing so that they can focus on finding a steady job or going to school. I urge Dr. Carson to come meet with public housing residents. What if it was his mother who was a disabled senior citizen in public housing? Would he ask her to pay more to become self-sufficientŽ? While we protest appalling proposals from Washington, there is still hope at the local level. I am a member of the Baltimore Housing Roundtable that is working day in and day out to realize a human right to housing. Councilman John Bullock and Council President Jack Young have responded to the challenge of the Trump administration and proposed the Fund the Trust ActŽ (Council bill 18-0221) that will provide $20 million per year to the citys Affordable Housing Trust Fund. Over 10 years, this legislation could help develop or preserve over 4,000 affordable homes, prevent over 4,600 evictions, rehabilitate 1,600 vacants and employ over 8,500 Baltimore residents. At the Housing Roundtable and Housing For All, we are pushing our leaders to act now on the bill to protect city residents from this administrations callous and inhumane policies. This is what leadership and a grassroots plan for action looks like. Also, our friends at Indivisible Baltimore have launched a campaign to encourage our congressional leaders to denounce the Trump-Carson HUD bill and the equally terrible bill by Rep. Dennis Ross, a Florida Republican. I urge Maryland residents to call their representatives, senators and council people about these important bills. Dr. Carson may have forgotten the people of Baltimore, but we will not forget. All people deserve a place to call home.

I already forgot about last year,Ž Sagan said. Im just happy I can be in the Tour de France, the biggest race in the world.ŽDefending champion Chris Froome, who fell into a ditch near the end of Saturdays Stage 1, arrived safely with most of the peloton.Sagan came up short in the opening stages sprint when he crossed second behind Fernando Gaviria, who won on his Tour debut. And the second stage looked like it would feature another duel between the veteran Sagan and new star Gaviria.But Gaviria was involved in a group pileup inside the three-kilometer zone that neutralizes the impact of accidents and could do nothing to stop Sagan from claiming a six-second overall lead.We expected some crashes in this tricky final and moved up early,Ž said Enrico Poitschke, sports director of Sagans Bora-Hansgrohe team. This proved to be important as we were able to avoid the last crash. Everything turned out perfect.ŽSagan moved to the front of the small bunch hunting for position, reaching a speed of 57.6 kph on the final 500 meters on his way to the finish line. With Sonny Colbrelli about to catch him, Sagan thrust forward to ensure victory.It was really a hard sprint. It was climbing a little bit in a headwind and already the last five kilo-meters were up and down. It was a mess,Ž Sagan said. I was a bit scared because Sonny was coming back strong.ŽSagan wins Stage 2 in Tour de FranceStage winner Slovakias Peter Sagan, wearing the overall leaders yellow jersey, celebrates Sunday on the podium after the second stage of the Tour de France cycling race over 113.4 miles with start in MouilleronSaint-Germain and “ nish in La Roche Sur-Yon, France.

Chicago White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu, Cleveland Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez, Red Sox designated hitter J.D. Martinez and Tampa Bay Rays catcher Wilson Ramos round out the ALs starting lineup.Harper was voted a starter for the fourth straight year. The slugger, who is eligible for free agency after this season, is batting just .218 for the disappointing Nationals, but he has 21 homers and 50 RBIs.Nick Markakis and Matt Kemp will join Harper in the NL outfield. Markakis has been a key performer for the surpris-ing Atlanta Braves and made it for the first time in 13 major league seasons. Kemps return to the Los Angeles Dodgers has been a smashing success.The Chicago Cubs will have two starters after catcher Will-son Contreras and second baseman Javier Baez each won a close race at their posi-tion in fan balloting. Braves first baseman Freddie Free-man, Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado and Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford round out the NL starting lineup.Scherzer was selected for the sixth time. The three-time Cy Young Award winner is 11-5 with a 2.33 ERA and could get the start in his home ballpark. | Monday, July 9, 2018 B5Los Angeles Angels Mike Trout, right, hits a solo home run during a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday in Anaheim, Calif. [AP PHOTO / MARK J. TERRILL] Na finis hed at 19-under 261 and picked up the $1.31 million winners paycheck. He improved 40 spots to No. 18 in the FedEx Cup standings.Kraft shot 70 and finished second at 14 under. Brandt Snedeker (64) and Jason Kokrak (67) tied for third at 13 under.Na was one shot behind co-leaders Kraft and Harold Varner to begin the day. His birdie stretch included making putts of 24, 33 and 43 feet.My putter got hot,Ž Na said. The first day the putter felt awful, and (then) it just clicked. Every time I got over the ball it felt great, and everything felt like it was going in.ŽBy the time he strolled up to the 18th green, Na was at ease, relaying his love to his wife and young daughter toward a TV camera. He cried during a television interview after the round as he relayed a message in Korean to his overseas fans.I didnt want to leave the Korean fans out,Ž Na said.Chase Elliott (9), Darrell Wallace Jr (43), Joey Logano (22) and Daniel Suarez (19) wreck Saturday in Daytona Beach. [AP PHOTO / RON SANDER] ALL-STARFrom Page B1All three are former Cup champions.Can any driver stop one from The Big 3 to ultimately claim the crown?Asked if Jones victory was a momentum-builder for the next generation, third-place finisher AJ All-mendinger cracked, One of those three are going to win next week, so I dont know.ŽJones, who joined Day-tona 500 champion Austin Dillon as winners at the track this season who only led the final lap, certainly has the talent and team to become a consistent winner. Joe Gibbs Racing thought so highly of his talent that it gave 2004 Cup champ Matt Kenseth the boot to make room for Jones.Regardless of who Im replacing or where Im driving, you want to win races, and you want to be a winner,Ž Jones said. You dont want to be riding around.ŽIt only seems like 35 other drivers have been riding around all season trying to play catch-up to Busch, Harvick and Truex. But the first step toward a title is making the playoffs. With eight races left before the field is set, only eight drivers have clinched the automatic playoff spot earned with a win. Clint Bowyer, Joey Logano, Dillon, Brad Keselowski, Kurt Busch, Kyle Larson, Denny Hamlin, Aric Almi-rola, Ryan Blaney, Jimmie Johnson, Chase Elliott and Alex Bowman held the final eight spots on Sunday „ an order sure to become jum-bled after next weeks race at Kentucky Speedway.You know, the track where Truex is the defend-ing race winner.So it goes, 18 up, 18 ahead. NASCARFrom Page B1About gaining weight while breast-feedi ng. About the joys of bringing her child onsite to a tournament for the first time. About the difficulty of dividing her time between family and forehands. About the precedent the All England Club set by seeding her 25th, based on past success that includes seven Wimbledon titles, even though she was ranked outside the top 150 after missing more than a full season, first while pregnant, then after giving birth.It will be really nice for these women to take a year off, and have the most amazing thing in the world,Ž Williams said, then come back to their job and not have to start from the bottom, scrape, scrape, scrape.ŽShe tweeted over the week-end about missing the chance to see Olympia take her first steps, because it happened during a training session.What working parent cant relate to that?Azarenka knows it can be dif-ficult to reconcile parenthood and a career.She skipped some tournaments, including last years U.S. Open, while working out a custody dispute with the father of her son, Leo.I really want to spend every second with him,Ž Azarenka said. I feel guilty if I take 15 minutes for myself to stretch. Im trying to run back to him and spend every second with him. So thats the balance I think is the tough one.ŽAs a member of the WTA player council, Azarenka has been involved with discussions about how the tour can help the growing group of moms. Among the topics being looked at: the protected rankingŽ policy, which allows players to enter a certain number of tour-naments based on where they were ranked before taking time off because of an injury, illness or pregnancy; whether a similar rule should be established with regards to seeding.One concern raised by some of the mothers in interviews during Wimbledon was that not enough tournaments offer childcare facilities, the way the four Grand Slams do.While Maria was in action at the grass-court tournament, her 4-year-old daughter, Charlotte, spent her days at what the All England Club calls the competitors creche, essentially a nursery for children of players and coaches.It opened in 1983, was refurbished in 2015, and has space for 15 or so kids.Its like a regular kindergarten. They eat together. They do activities. We dont have to look after her at all. Normally, we check on her at the other Grand Slams: Are you hungry? or Do you want to leave?Ž Maria said. But she wants to be there from 11 in the morning until 8 oclock in the evening, every day. She loves it.Ž TENNISFrom Page B1 GOLFFrom Page B1

My husband and I are hosting a local reception here where we live because we would like our close family and friends to be able to celebrate their wedding. Our problem is, our 24-year-old daughter is an alcoholic who doesn't see her drinking as a problem. She says she can handle it. Well, she can't! She got so drunk at the last family wedding that the police and paramedics had to be called. She's currently on probation because she assaulted a paramedic. The only way she could go to the destination wedding is if we paid for it, which my husband and I agreed not to do. My husband does want to include her at the party we are having in our city. Because she is uncontrollable and unpredictable, I do not want her there. Oh, and this is the same venue where she got hammered at the last family wedding. I don't want to take the chance that she will ruin this special evening. My husband thinks he will be able to control her and that it won't "look right" if the sister of the groom is absent. I think it would be much worse if she causes a scene, and I would rather avoid a potential disaster. What should we do? -MOTHER OF THE GROOM DEAR MOTHER: Your daughter is an addict in denial, which is sad for all concerned. Because her behavior is unpredictable, and there is a strong possibility that she will disrupt the reception, she should not attend. If your husband is worried about how it will look if she isn't there, he should consider how it will look if the police have to be called and haul her away (again). What your daughter needs is an intervention, not an invitation.DEAR ABBY: I'm a newlywed, married to an amazing man who also brought me an adorable 5-year-old stepson. Although we married only three months ago, I have been in both of their lives for three years. We recently found out we are expecting, and I am over the moon! We haven't told anyone yet because we are waiting to get through the rst trimester. My question to you is, while this baby is my rst, he or she is clearly his second. How do I answer when people ask if this is our rst baby? In a sense, it is our rst baby, but I don't want to lessen the importance of my stepson. At the same time I'm so excited to share that yes, this is my rst baby! I'm looking forward to all the excitement and the advice people can give, and I want to share the news. Do you have guidance on how I ought to phrase the best news of my life? I never thought I would have this dilemma. -OVER THE MOON IN LAS VEGAS DEAR OVER THE MOON: Congratulations on your impending birth. I applaud you for your sensitivity to the feelings of your stepson. If you are asked if this is your rst baby, reply that it is your rst but your husband's second. And when you do, be sure to tell the "asker" how much you would appreciate any advice the person would care to share about infants, and I'm sure you'll get an earful. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.TODAY IS MONDAY, JULY 9, the 190th day of 2018. There are 175 days left in the year. TODAY'S HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY: On July 9, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was read aloud to Gen. George Washington's troops in New York. ON THIS DATE: In 1540, England's King Henry VIII had his 6-month-old marriage to his fourth wife, Anne of Cleves, annulled. In 1850, the 12th president of the United States, Zachary Taylor, died after serving only 16 months of his term. (He was succeeded by Millard Fillmore.) In 1918, 101 people were killed in a train collision in Nashville, Tennessee. The Distinguished Service Cross was established by an Act of Congress. In 1937, a re at 20th Century Fox's lm storage facility in Little Ferry, New Jersey, destroyed most of the studio's silent lms. In 1951, President Harry S. Truman asked Congress to formally end the state of war between the United States and Germany. (An ocial end to the state of war was declared in October 1951.) In 1962 pop artist Andy Warhol's exhibit of 32 paintings of Campbell's soup cans opened at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles. In 1995, Jerry Garcia performed for the nal time as frontman of the Grateful Dead during a concert at Chicago's Soldier Field (Garcia died a month later).
