[AP PHOTO/PABLO MARTINEZ MONSIVAIS] By Jonathan Lemire and Jill ColvinThe Associated PressBRUSSELS „ President Donald Trump barreled into a NATO summit Wednesday with claims that a natural gas pipeline deal has left Germany totally controlledŽ and cap-tive to RussiaŽ as he lobbed fresh complaints about allies delinquentŽ defense spend-ing during the opening of what was expected to be a fraught two-day meeting.Trump also suggested that NATO allies commit to spending 4 percent of their gross domestic product on defense „ double the current goal of 2 percent by 2024.The president, in a testy exchange with NATO Secre-tary-General Jens Stoltenberg that kicked off his visit, took issue with the U.S. protecting Germany as it strikes deals with Russia.I have to say, I think its very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia where were supposed to be guarding against Russia,Ž Trump said at a breakfast with Stoltenberg. Were supposed to protect you against Russia but theyre paying billions of dollars to Russia and I think thats very inappropriate.ŽTrump repeatedly described Germany as captive to RussiaŽ because of the energy deal and urged NATO to look into the issue.German Chancellor Angela Merkel pushed back firmly, insisting that Germany makes its own decisions and drawing on her own background growing up in communist East Germany behind the Iron Curtain.Trump: Germany controlledChancellor Merkel insists the country makes its own decisions In this image made from video released by the Thailand Government Spokesman Bureau, three of the 12 boys are seen recovering in their hospital beds after being rescued along with their coach from a ” ooded cave in Mae Sai, Chiang Rai province, northern Thailand.

But the new find pushes that back by at least 250,000 years.Its absolutely a new story,Ž said archaeologist Michael Petraglia of the Max Planck Insti-tute for the Science of Human History in Jena, Germany, who did not participate in the study. It means that early humans were getting out of Africa way earlier than we ever realized.ŽThat exit came long before our own species, Homo sapiens, even appeared. The researchers believe the tools were made by another member of the Homo evolution-ary group.The items included several chipped rocks, fragments and hammer stones. The 96 artifacts were dug up in an area known as the Loess Plateau, north of the Qinling mountains, which divide the north and south of China.Some of them were as old as 2.1 million years, according to the study in Wednesdays journal Nature.We were very excited,Ž said Zhaoyu Zhu, a professor at the Guangzhou Institute of Geochemistry, who led the field work. One of my colleagues suddenly noticed a stone embedded in a steep outcrop. After a short while, more artifacts were found „ one after another.Ž Chinese nd says human relatives left Africa earlierThe Associated PressANOKA, Minn. „ A 9-year-old English bulldog has died just weeks after win-ning the 2018 Worlds Ugliest Dog contest.Owner Megan Brainard of Anoka, Minnesota, told NBCs Today  that Zsa Zsa died in her sleep Tuesday.

[AP PHOTO/ JEFF CHIU, FILE] By Gregory KatzThe Associated PressLONDON „ President Donald Trump will get the red carpet treatment on his brief visit to Britain beginning Thurs-day: Military bands at a gala dinner, lunch with the prime minister at her country resi-dence, then tea with the queen at Windsor Castle before flying off to one of his golf clubs in Scotland.But trip planners may go out of their way to shield Trump from viewing another aspect of the greeting: an oversized balloon depicting the president as an angry baby in a diaper that will be flown from Parliament Square during what are expected to be massive gather-ings of protesters opposed to Trumps presence.Rarely has a foreign leader been so mocked on an official visit „ Londons mayor, a Muslim who has challenged Trumps world view „ okayed the balloon, which is an apt symbol of Trumps tempestuous relationship with Britain, traditionally the United States closest ally.It is not simply the protesters, who are expected to dog Trump throughout his visit, including his weekend in Scotland, but his fraught relationship with political leaders accustomed to harmonious exchanges with U.S. leaders, a tradition of unity that goes back at least to the vital World War II partnership of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill.Trump may have ruffled feathers again when he said just before departing for Europe that the UK was in turmoil,Ž sug-gesting it was up to the peopleŽ to decide if Prime Minister The-resa May remains in power after a few days that saw her authority challenged by the resignation of two prominent Cabinet minis-ters protesting her Brexit policy.He has clashed in the past with May „ even though she is a fellow conservative who shares his view that defense spending should be hiked „ and with her predecessor, David Cameron, who challenged Trumps anti-Muslim campaign stance as divisive, stupid and wrong.ŽLabour Party legislator Paul Flynn, who has criticized Trump in Parliament, says Trump has outraged Britons „ and people around the world „ with his harsh treatment of immigrants.Give us your weary and your oppressed and well divide you from your children,Ž he said of Trumps policies. It seems so un-American. We greatly respect America as a generous place built up by immigrants over the years. People see him as a cheap huckster who happens to have an office we respect as president of the United States.ŽTrump angered May and many Britons by tweeting inflammatory and unverified videos made by Britain First, an anti-Muslim group whose leaders have been convicted of hate crimes, and by character-izing parts of London and other cities as no-go areas because of a purported Muslim-related crime wave.His America FirstŽ policies, including the decision to pull the United States out of the Paris climate accord and the nuclear deal with Iran, have brought him into conflict with Britains lead-ers over issues of real substance. Both of those accords were the result of years of painstaking diplomacy by European leaders „ and Trump unilaterally trashed them.Top it off with the introduc-tion of trade policies that have targeted some European indus-tries „ even though European nations are longtime friends accustomed to easy trade with the United States „ and it is not surprising that Trumps itiner-ary will keep him out of central London on Friday, when large protests are planned.The U.S. Embassy has even warned American citizens to keep a low profile during the visit because of the planned protests „ the sort of warning usually issued in more volatile locations.U.S. Ambassador Woody Johnson said Wednesday citi-zens are often advised to avoid public demonstrations and that he is not upset by the decision to allow the Trump babyŽ balloon to be displayed near Parliament.Trump has been quick to crit-icize British society, telling an NRA convention in May that the British didnt have guns but had so much knife crime that one hospital was like a military war zone with its floors awash with blood „ a statement quickly rebutted by British physicians and politicians. The antipathy between Trump and segments of the British public started during the 2016 presidential campaign, when Trump called for a temporary ban on Mus-lims entering the United States. That led roughly half a million people to sign a petition calling for Trump to be banned from entering the UK. British law requires any peti-tion supported by more than 100,000 people to be considered for parliamentary debate, even though there was no seri-ous attempt to prohibit Trump from coming to Britain. Still, lawmakers had no qualms about publicly calling Trump a demagogue and a fool. It was an extraordinary rebuke from a close ally. Prime Minister May has abundant reasons to seek a close relationship with Trump „ not least, the United States will be an even more vital trade partner once Britain leaves the European Union next year „ but it is an uneasy embrace, given her opposition to many of his key policies.May reached out to him just days after Trump was inaugu-rated, extending the invitation for a coveted state visit that would be hosted by Queen Elizabeth II, but that gesture has proved far more controver-sial than expected as Trump has shown little interest in maintaining diplomacy as usualŽ with European allies.The state visit has never actu-ally been scheduled „ there is fierce opposition to it in many quarters of Britain „ and this trip is part of a working visit instead, meaning among things that Trump will overnight at Winfield House, the U.S. ambassadors handsome resi-dence near Regents Park rather than in Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle as a guest of the queen.Winfield House has one of the largest private gardens in greater London „ but it wont be possible to see the Trump babyŽ balloon from its grounds.Trump will get red carpet treatment „ and protestsPresident Donald Trump meets with British Prime Minister Theresa May at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Nihart By Jim TurnerNews Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ State utility regulators gave the go-ahead Tues-day for a new area code to keep up with growth in Central Florida.The Public Service Commission unanimously approved a proposal that will make the area code 689 available as an over-lay to the existing 407 area code in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties, as well parts of Lake and Volusia counties.The new area code will only affect new numbers and shouldnt be much of a change for existing cus-tomers since calls within the counties already require 10-digit dialing.Thats due to an existing overlay with the 321 area code, which was set up for the Space Coast but has a small reach into Central Florida. The new area code wont have an impact on Brevard County.The new Central Florida prefix has been in the works for more than a decade, but the state received notice May 16 from the North American Numbering Plan Admin-istrator that the 407 area code would run out of numbers by May 2019.The 689 area code was initially proposed in 2001, but implementation was delayed a year later due to changes in projections and in the way numbers were assigned to telephone companies.O cials OK 689 area code for Central Florida By Tom McNifftommcniff@dailycommercial.comLEESBURG „ A new move-ment will begin sweeping through Florida high schools, including Leesburg High, when the new school year begins next month.The anti-bullying campaign will try to harness the power of peer pressure in a positive way to change a culture of bullying and intimidation that many educators and stu-dents believe can make school a hostile, even unbearable, experience for so many kids.On Wednesday, members of the Leesburg High Interact Club introduced the effort to the Rotary Club of Leesburg.The campaigns premise is simple: Build a critical mass of students who oppose bullying and are willing to regulate the student body by encouraging civil behavior and discouraging aggression.No more bullying Interact Club will lead anti-bullying e ort at Leesburg High this fallElena Dolan, right, 15, of Leesburg, talks about the Interact Clubs anti-bullying campaign while Melissa Bready, 16, of Leesburg, listens during a meeting of the Rotary Club of Leesburg on Wednesday at the Community Building.

Tammy Malphurs of the Volu-sia County Beach Safety Ocean Rescue.One of those people was transported to a hospital. We are having very hazardous rip current conditions,Ž she said.Sheexpected the rip currents to continue for the next few days and possibly into the weekend.Swimmers should swim in front of a staffed life-guard tower and remain close enough to shore so that their feet securely touch the bottom at all times, Malphurs said.The 14-year old surfer was not transported for treatment after he was bitten byan unseen shark just before noon near the 27th Avenue beach approach, she said. BRIEFSFrom Page A3 When the new area code was postponed, the 407 / 321 numbering plan areaŽ was expected to run out in 8.77 years.Commissioner Julie Brown asked Tuesday if the current projection is accurate.They were wrong in 2001, 2002, when they thought we needed to implement it right away, and we were able to delay it for what, 16 years,Ž she said.The commissions Public Utilities Supervisor Greg Fogleman said the state has done everything it could to conserve num-bers and that there has been an uptick in large companies entering the market and acquiring numbers.This is a process that is used nationwide to determine when a new area code is imple-mented,Ž Fogleman said. Were running out in this area code. Weve done everything we can. And now is the time to do this and have a smooth transition.ŽThe next step is for Neustar, the administrator of the national numbering plan, to coordinate with select companies and industries to develop an implemen-tation date. Neustar then will ask the public ser-vice commission to issue a formal order to imple-ment the new area code.Fogleman said the change should be easier because the region already has 10-digit dialing.When youre moving from a 7-digit dialing pat-tern to a 10-digit dialing pattern, thats where a large number of public education is needed,Ž he said.The new area code would add 792 usable prefixes „ containing 10,000 numbers each „ to the Central Florida region.There are 17 area codes currently in use through-out Florida. AREA CODEFrom Page A3 Nihart, as of Wednesday, has 1,877 followers on Instagram.Roehm lives in Ormond Beach and has worked for the past year for Jungle Georges, an airbrush and gift store at 1022 Main St. On Sunday, he was dressed in his favorite costume, a Minion suit. Minions are yellow crea-tures featured in the 2010 film Despicable Me,Ž as well as its subsequent sequel and self-titled spinoff.An arrest report gave no indication as to what motivated Nihart to attack Roehm, but Roehms boss, George St. Pierre, said it was likely a social media stunt.Pierre said he was one of the two men who pinned down Nihart so that responding police officers could arrest him. The suspect kept talking to him.He kept telling me, Im going to make you famous,Ž Pierre told The News-Journal. I guess he wanted to be on YouTube.ŽA camera inside the business captured the incident, which took place shortly after 7:30 p.m. Police released the video, along with the respond-ing officers body camera footage, to the News-Journal on Wednesday.At one point, Roehm was approached by two males and a female. One of the males was holding a phone and recording the conversation between Roehm and the suspect.He asked me if I wanted to wrestle and I shook my head no,Ž Roehm could be heard on the video telling the police officer. The store video shows Roehm shaking his head.Seconds after Roehm shook his head, the suspect picked up Roehm and twirled him around four times.After the suspect let go of him, Roehm started leaning against a tree. Thats when the suspect kicked him from behind, striking him in the groin area. The suspect then kicked Roehm in the face and tackled him to the ground.Afterward, the suspect crouched down and grabbed Roehms legs. Thats when an employee came out of the store and wrestled the suspect to the ground. Pierre came outside a short time later and helped his employee pin the suspect on the sidewalk. They waited two minutes for a police officer to show up, according to the video.Pierre said the two other people in the video were the suspects girlfriend and male friend. The pair left the scene and neither was arrested.Roehm declined medi-cal attention. He suffered bruising to his left forearm near his elbow, according to police.Pierre said Roehm was shaken after the attack. He was in the back of the business crying and wor-ried about whether he would lose his job. Pierre said he assured him it was not his fault and that he would remain employed.On a video he posted on YouTube, Nihart apologized.So I messed up this week, guys,Ž he said. I am so sorry. I apologize to anybody that I offended or anybody that I will offend. But now I am on the news for something that was a big misunderstanding. I really was trying to make a funny video.ŽPolice said the $300 Minion suit was destroyed during the attack, which led to the suspects crimi-nal mischief charge.Pierre insisted on pressing charges against Nihart.Todays youth are idiots,Ž he said. ATTACKFrom Page A3 Referring to the proposed setback, City Attorney Dan Matzaris cautioned against the city approving an ordinance so restrictive that nobody could us it.During the public comments segment, Dr. Robert Olson also expressed concern over the proposed setback, saying that would put his chickens by the lake.Ž Olson gave a quick review of current medical literature on the benefits of chickens and pointed out that early exposure to farm animals is linked to reduced incidence of allergies and asthma.The basic premise is that exposure to dirt and grime when youre a little kid makes your immune system stronger,Ž Olson said.He also spoke of the nutritional superiority of eggs from backyard chickens: up to 5,000 per-cent more Omega-3 and 500 percent more vita-min A and beta-carotene than is typically found in store-bought eggs.Keying on the allergy comments, Jim Purvis then commented that in 76 years, I never knew why I was so sickly as a kid, growing up in south Philadelphia.Ž Observing that his allergies substantially went away when he moved to south New Jersey, he said I guess theres something to that.ŽEchoing Goodgames comment that chickens belong in the country, Purvis went on to say that if you want to change all four tires on your front lawn, you should move to the country.ŽNext step for the city is a chickenŽ workshop, most likely in October, after budget season. Mayor Gail Ash, in particular, pushed for more information, and more input from the public.Dan Santucci plans on being there. Unable to attend Tuesdays meet-ing, he recaps the reasons he brought chickens to the attention of the council in the first place.It all started at Clermont Middle School, he said, where one of his daughters was in an agri-culture class that raised chickens. When the chickens reached a certain size, the school was no longer able to keep them, so students had the opportunity to adopt the chickens and take them home. Dan Santucci knew they were permitted in the county. He says he did not know they were not permitted in the city. Being told he would have to request a variance, spending hundreds of dollars for an uncertain future, he opted to take the matter to the City Council.Asked why hes such a proponent of chickens, he said, my girls.Ž It gets them out of the house,Ž he said. They watch the chickens. They think about eating healthy. Even my 5-year-old talks about eating healthy. We have changed our diet dramatically.Ž CHICKENSFrom Page A3Students will be encouraged to sign anti-bullying pledges and carry those cards with them on their backpacks. There will also be wristbands and T-shirts with antibullying slogans to serve as visual reminders of the campaigns guiding principles.It makes the invisible majority visible, and it gives the kids who are afraid to speak up a voice,Ž said Melissa Bready, 16, the secretary of Leesburg Highs Inter-act Club.The annual Youth Risk Behavior Survey con-ducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Pre-vention reveals a steady trend in bullying.Between 2009 and 2017, about 20 percent of students surveyed annu-ally reported being bullied on school property across the United States, the CDC states. BULLYINGFrom Page A3Member David van de Velde talks about the Interact Clubs anti-bullying campaign during a meeting of the Rotary Club of Leesburg on Wednesday at the Community Building. [WHITNEY LEHNECKER/DAILY COMMERCIAL] It makes the invisible majority visible, and it gives the kids who are afraid to speak up a voice.ŽMelissa Bread, secretary of Leesburg Highs Interact Club, on the groups anti-bullying campaign By David Fleshler and Stephen HobbsSun Sentinel (TNS)FORT LAUDERDALE „ When 911 callers reported gunfire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on Feb. 14, operators in Coral Springs relayed their information to a regional dispatch center, a process that might have caused fatal delays in the law enforcement response. The two-step reporting system resulted from Coral Springs decision to remain outside a 2013 consolidation of 911 service in Broward County. Parkland relies on Coral Springs for 911 services and the Sheriffs Office for law enforcement.What happened in Park-land was that every single cellular 911 call made from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, every kid in that school, everybody in Parkland that was calling 911 to report information, was that it was going to the Coral Springs communications center,Ž said Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, chairman of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission.Coral Springs is not the primary police provider in Parkland. Broward County Sheriffs Office is,Ž he said Wednesday. So you had people who were conveying firsthand information to the entity that wasnt the first responder for law enforcement. So what was happening was that Coral Springs would have been required to transfer the callers from the Coral Springs communications center to the regional com-munications center so the regional communications center could then convey it to the deputies. Was that a factor in this? Yeah, abso-lutely its a factor.ŽPolk County Sheriff Grady Judd, another commission member, said several fac-tors could lead a community to opt out of a consolidated system: Politics, the desire for local control and concerns about the quality of the consolidated service.Gualtieri said call transfers may discourage callers and add an average of 30 seconds to the response time.When the call is trans-ferred, it inherently raises issues and concerns and can cause problems,Ž he said. They say Hang on a second, Im going to trans-fer you to someone else, and you have to tell your story again to somebody else because thats what happens when calls are transferred. When a person says hold on, a good part of my experience is the caller hangs up.ŽAfter it launched in 2014, the countys regional 911 system received complaints about equipment failures and dispatchers who sent fire trucks to the wrong addresses. The system went down for an hour last April. Both Coral Springs and Plantation opted out of the system.Coral Springs officials said Wednesday that the city chose to remain independent from the county because of concerns over control over technology and programming. Deputy Police Chief Shawn Backer said joining a consolidated system would lead to a loss of a hometown feel,Ž which means dispatchers would lack the on-the-ground knowledge to quickly relay information to officers in emergencies.Kathy Liriano, commu-nications administrator for Coral Springs, also said the citys call takers have differ-ent processes for answering questions and dispatching emergency personnel than those in the regional communications department, which they believe leads to quicker responses.Thats only true though in the Coral Springs setting,Ž Gualtieri responded. Because Coral Springs is not a part of the regional 911 system, he said, it still has to transfer emergency calls not in its jurisdiction, adding delays to response times.Max Schachter, whose 14-year-old son Alex was killed in the shooting, found the hometown feelŽ rea-soning unconvincing.I dont have any home-town feel „ my son is in the goddamned ground right now and he was murdered,Ž he said. I live in Coral Springs and I dont have any hometown feel. Id much rather give up the hometown feel to have my son back.Its unacceptable to have people calling for an emergency and need law enforcement and need help and BSO not getting those calls,Ž Schachter said.911 system may have caused delays in Parkland shooting

DailyCommercial.com | Thursday, July 12, 2018 A5Everyone is strong in mind and heart,Ž he said at a news conference of officials involved in the high-risk rescue effort.The four boys and soccer coach brought out Tuesday on the final day of an all-out three-day push to save all of them had recovered more quickly than the boys rescued on Sunday and Monday, Chaiwetch said.Even so, all need to be monitored in the hospital for sev en days and then rest at home for another 30 days, he said. Three have slight lung infections.Another video released on Facebook by the Thai Navy SEALs, who were central to the rescue, apparently shows one of the boys being carried through part of the muddy cave on a stretcher covered by an emergency thermal blanket.The SEALs commander, Rear Adm. Apakorn You-kongkae, said the boys coach, Ekkapol Chantawong, told SEALs the order the boys should be rescued in.I havent asked the coach yet why he chose that order,Ž he said. The coach was the one to choose.ŽThe group had entered the sprawling Tham Luang cave to go exploring after soccer practice on June 23, but monsoon rains soon filled the tight passageways, blocking their escape. They were found by a pair of British divers nearly 10 days later, huddled on a small, dry shelf just above the water, smiling with relief but visibly skinny.The complex mission for international and Thai divers to guide the boys and coach through the caves flooded passageways riveted people worldwide. Highlighting the dangers, a former Thai navy SEAL volunteering to work on the rescue effort died Friday while replen-ishing oxygen canisters that were placed along the escape route.Narongsak Osatanakorn, the official overseeing the rescue operation, said the boys should not be blamed for their near tragedy. He lauded the cooperation between Thai and inter-national rescuers.The situation went beyond just being a rescue mission and became a symbol of unity among mankind,Ž he said. Everyone worked together without discrim-ination of race or religion as the ultimate goal was to save the youth football team.ŽOfficials plan an interactive museum at Tham Luang based on the historic rescue mission that will feature items such as clothing that key rescuers wore during the opera-tion, Narongsak said.Each of the boys, ages 11-16 and with no diving experience, was guided out by divers though rocky, muddy and water-filled passages that in places were just a crawl space.The method was extremely risky, but dwindling oxygen levels in the cave and fears of more monsoon rains to come made a decision urgent. Relatively mild weather and a mas-sive effort to pump out water created a window of opportunity. And the confidence of the diving team, and expertise spe-cific to the cave, grew after its first successful mission Sunday.Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong, a public health inspector, said the boys lost an average of 2 kilograms (4.4 pounds) while they were trapped. Before the ir discovery, they survived by drinking water dripping into their cramped refuge.To not receive food, we can still survive for many months, but whats necessary is water, which the cave has, and around this time theres a lot in the cave, and they chose clean water to drink,Ž he said. RESCUEDFrom Page A1 Ive experienced myself a part of Germany controlled by the Soviet Union and Im very happy today that we are united in freedom as the Federal Republic of Germany and can thus say that we can determine our own policies and make our own decisions and thats very good,Ž she said.The president appeared to be referring to the Nord Stream 2 pipeline that would bring gas from Russia to Germanys northeastern Baltic coast, bypassing Eastern European nations like Poland and Ukraine and doubling the amount of gas Russia can send directly to Germany. The vast undersea pipeline is opposed by the U.S. and some other EU members, who warn it could give Moscow greater leverage over Western Europe. Its expected to be online at the end of 2019In their back-and-forth, Stoltenberg stressed to Trump that NATO mem-bers have been able to work together despite their dif-ferences. I think that two world wars and the Cold War taught us that we are stronger together than apart,Ž he told the president, trying to calm tensions.Trumps dramatic exchange with Stoltenberg set the tone for what was already expected to be a tense day of meetings with leaders of the military alliance as Trump presses jittery NATO allies about their military spending ahead of his meeting next week with Putin.The United States is paying far too much and other countries are not paying enough, especially some. So were going to have a meeting on that,Ž Trump said, describing the situation as disproportionate and not fair to the taxpayers of the United States.ŽThey will spend more,Ž he later predicted. I have great confidence theyll be spending more.ŽAnd with that, he went on to push allies at the summit to double their commitment on defense spending.During the presidents remarks today at the NATO summit, he suggested that countries not only meet their commitment of 2 percent of their GDP on defense spending, but that they increase it to 4 percent,Ž said White House spokeswoman Sarah Huck-abee Sanders. She said the president raised the same issue at NATO last year and that, Trump wants to see our allies share more of the burden and at a very mini-mum meet their already stated obligations.ŽHowever, a formal summit declaration issued by the NATO lead-ers Wednesday reaffirmed their unwavering com-mitmentŽ to the 2 percent pledge set in 2014 and made no reference to any effort to get to 4 percent.Trumps pipeline criti-cism was an unusual line of attack for a president who has proclaimed himself eager to improve relations with Russias Vladimir Putin and dismissed the U.S. intelligence communitys assessment that Russia tried to under-mine Western democracy by meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election to help Trump win. Trump has long argued that improving relaxations with Russia would be good for both nations. Back in the U.S., Demo-cratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer issued a joint statement describ-ing Trumps brazen insults and denigration of one of Americas most steadfast allies, Germany,Ž as an embarrassment.ŽHis behavior this morn-ing is another profoundly disturbing signal that the president is more loyal to President Putin than to our NATO allies,Ž they wrote.Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch also took issue with Trump, saying I dont agree with that. Germans wouldnt agree with that. They are a very strong people.ŽBut Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, a strong sup-porter of the president, said the pipeline issue strikes at the heart of NATO unity.ŽThe pipeline gets cheap Russian gas to Germany while bypassing smaller Eastern Eu ropean nations, allowing Russia to pressure them while Germany is held harm-less,Ž he tweeted, adding: No amount of preening in Berlin will cover this nakedly selfish policy.ŽDespite Trumps claims about Germany, Merkel served as a forceful advocate for imposing „ and maintaining „ sanctions on Russia after it annexed Crimea in 2014, arguing that it violated the principles of the international order established after World War II. GERMANYFrom Page A1 China gave no details, but it has plenty of options to retaliate that could extend beyond additional tariffs on U.S. imports. There are fears that Beijing could attempt to disrupt operations of American automakers, retailers and others that see China as a key market.The spiraling conflict stems from Washingtons complaint that Beijing steals or pres-sures companies to hand over technology and concerns that plans for state-led development of Chinese champions in robots and other fields might erode American industrial leadership.A possible second round of tariff hikes announced Tuesday by the U.S. Trade Repre-sentative targets a $200 billion list of Chinese goods. That came four days after Washington added 25 percent duties on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods and Beijing responded by increasing taxes on the same amount of Ameri-can imports.The abrupt escalation is totally unacceptable,Ž said a Commerce Ministry statement. It said Beijing would take unspecified necessary countermeasuresŽ to protect its core interests.ŽAsked what Beijing would do, foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying gave no details but said, We will take firm and forceful measures.Ž The USTR, the federal agency that oversees international trade policy and negotiations, said it was responding to Beijings decision to retaliate instead of changing its policies. President Donald Trump has threatened higher tariffs on more than $500 billion of goods, or nearly all of Chinas annual exports to the United States. CHINAFrom Page A1preparation for demolition, but city officials hope to save two placards from the current structure. One indicates that the building was built in 1953-54 and the other that it was remodeled in 1983-84.Plans also call for a monument to firefighters to be saved, and workers will remove a heat pump from the Venetian Gardens pool so it can be used at the nearby Dabney pool.In May, the City Commission approved spending $3.5 million on the new building, park-ing lots and landscaping, with a completion date of July 4, 2019. The commission will use money from last years sale of the citys fiber optics company.The building will fea-ture a 7,200-square-foot ballroom with a wall of glass overlooking MLK Island.The old pool, mean-while, will not be rebuilt at Venetian Gardens. Instead, the City Commission agreed to spend $2.7 million to build a pool in the Susan Street Recreation Complex area. ENDFrom Page A1The Leesburg Community Building will close for good Sunday.

The dollar spiked and big exporters plunged.Companies that sell computer chips, oil, basic materials and heavy machin-ery dropped after the Trump administration proposed a 10 percent tax on a wide list of imports. It is scheduled to make a decision on the poten-tial tariffs after Aug. 31.Chinas government said it will take firm and forceful measuresŽ if the new tariffs are enacted. That response would likely include measures other than tariffs. Trump has threatened to put new taxes almost everything the U.S. imports from China.Jack Ablin, chief investment officer for Cresset Wealth Advisors, said the tariffs can have big effects: a tariff on an import from one country can lead to broad price increases for similar items, and rising taxes and costs might cause companies to change their supply lines in less efficient ways.When you start adding all of that together, you end up with typically higher infla-tion and low productivity,Ž he said. Higher inflation tends to rob consumers of their income and lower productiv-ity tends to rob companies of their profits.ŽA four-day winning streak for the S&P 500 ended as the benchmark index lost 19.82 points, or 0.7 percent, to 2,774.02.

Theyre out, all of them, safe and sound. Twelve boys „ soccer players ranging in age from 11 to 16 „ and their 25-year-old coach had been trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand since June 23. In what has been described as the most challenging underground rescue in history, the last of the group emerged from their dark, damp prison Tuesday, followed by the remaining members of the rescue team. It was a remarkable achievement made possible by the cooperation and coordination of several countries, and the bravery of a multinational team of divers. Suspenseful rescues of people trapped for days or even weeks underground or beneath the sea have long captured the publics attention. Theyre cinematic escapades made real life. But few have ever been as compelling as the unfolding drama in Thailand. Even fewer have resonated so much on the global stage. No doubt the youth of rescuees and their extraordinary surroundings contributed to that. Divers navigated muddy passages in darkness, some as narrow as 16 inches, to reach the children huddled in a small chamber 2 miles from the caves entrance. Then the kids, several of whom couldnt swim, had to receive a crash course in diving to make the return trip out. For those following the story, the description of the conditions and the nature of the rescue were enough to trigger phobias. Its terrifying to imagine enduring that. Indeed, the wonderful news that the lost soccer team had been found alive after 10 days quickly gave way to the sobering realization that their troubles were not over, but only beginning. The dangers involved in getting were made stark July 5 when a retired Thai Navy diver, Saman Gunan, died when he ran out of air during a mission to deliver oxygen tanks to the trapped soccer team. He was mourned around the globe as a hero, and rightly so. His was the ultimate sacrifice that was not made in vain, thanks to an international effort that numbered more than 1,000 people from dozens of countries. They included divers, military personnel and civilian volunteers. Their selflessness was both inspiring and humbling. I dive for passion and always wondered if it had purpose. Last two weeks is what I prepared for my entire life,Ž said John Volanthen, a British lead diver. He and fellow Brit Rick Stanton discovered the boys and their coach trapped in an air pocket and shot the nowfamous video of their first encounter (https://youtu. be/M7HKmMDNsso). Then theres Dr. Park Loharachun, a Thai doctor/diver who stayed with the children after they were found, and was among the last out. Perhaps the rescue resonated for another reason. In a world roiled with political conflict, seeing people of different nationalities, creeds and colors put their differences aside and work toward a common, humanitarian goal reminds us of how much stronger we are when we cooperate. The joy and satisfaction evoked by that successful mission should inspire us to overcome other obstacles, solve other problems. We need to escape our factional caverns that isolate us. Hopefully, that story eventually will have as happy an ending as the one in Thailand.OUR OPINIONJoy and inspiration from ThailandSo its Judge Brett Kavanaugh. There will be time enough to explore the nominees views and record. Lets step back a bit and get some perspective on the national debate that we are about to have. Those on the left fear, and those on the right hope, that Judge Kavanaugh will prove pivotal to an assortment of new constitutional rulings: protecting gun rights, overruling Roe v. Wade, invalidating affirmative action, crippling the regulatory state, striking down the Affordable Care Act, and allowing people with religious objections to discriminate against gays and lesbians. Such rulings would, of course, take sides on issues that sharply divide the American people. It would be genuinely depressing if the public debate over Judge Kavanaugh, and the confirmation process, turn out to be focused on one question: How conservative is he, exactly? Thats a terrible question, because it ignores a crucial difference between two kinds of judges … a difference that cuts across traditional political lines. Some judges, and some conservatives, insist on judicial restraint. They want judges to back off. They deplore Roe v. Wade not because of their political convictions, but because the Supreme Court seized on ambiguous constitutional provisions in order to strike down the laws of numerous states. They do not think that the Supreme Court should require states to recognize samesex marriages, not because they oppose such marriages, but because they think that judges should allow states a lot of room to maneuver. Restrained conservatives have no enthusiasm for the liberal rulings of the last decades, because they think that judges intruded far too often, and far too readily, into the democratic process. They want judges to have a smaller role in American government. For such judges, restraint is a matter of principle. They are cautious about the idea of striking down the Affordable Care Act (even if they hate it). They are hesitant about forbidding affirmative action programs. They certainly do not believe that judges should mount some kind of assault on the regulatory state. By contrast, some judges, and some conservatives, act as if they are part of a movement. Movement judges favor aggressive use of judicial power to bring about results that they like And if their vision of the U.S. Constitution turns out to overlap with the political commitments of the right-wing of the Republican Party, movement judges are not particularly embarrassed. To be sure, movement judges never describe themselves as such. Often they argue in good faith that they are speaking for the text of the Constitution, or for the original understanding of the founding document. In recent years, several people, most notably Georgetown Universitys Lawrence Solum, have offered powerful and distinguished defenses of the view that judges should follow that understanding. Those defenses should not be disparaged. But when judges read the Constitution as if it regularly forbids practices and reforms that the political right most sharply opposes, we are entitled to wonder whether they are genuinely speaking for the original understanding … or instead for moral or political commitments of their own. Whether it comes from the left or the right, judicial restraint is honorable, especially if it operates in a nonpartisan manner. But movement conservatism … like its left-wing sibling … is a major threat to democratic ideals. It is well worth figuring out whether any Supreme Court nominee, including Judge Kavanaugh, subscribes to it. Cass Sunstein wrote this for Bloomberg News.ANOTHER OPINIONThe test for Judge KavanaughMuch of Europe was asleep, or in denial, when the Nazis took power and began rebuilding their military in violation of the Versailles Treaty that brought World War I to an end. Now, after years of virtually unlimited migration from predominately North African and other Muslim regions, some European nations are awakening to what this could mean for their countries and are responding, hoping its not too late.Sebastian Kurz, the far-right chancellor of Austria, has plans, according to the Daily Mail, to expel up to 60 Turkish-funded imams and their families and ... shut down seven mosques as part of a crackdown on political Islam.Ž These mosques, Austria says, are being subsidized by the Turkish government, which is becoming more radical after the recent election, which granted President Recep Tayyip Erdogan new powers as he seeks to create a more pious generationŽ in order to change to country and make it more Islamic.Justification for Kurzs move comes from a 2015 law banning foreign funding of religious groups. The chancellor told a recent news conference: paral-lel societies, political Islam and radicalization have no place in our country. ... This is just the beginning.ŽPresident Erdogan reacted by warning of a war between the cross and the crescent.Ž That war started centuries ago and manifests itself today in ways not limited to terrorist acts. While parts of Europe appear to be awakening from their slumber, Canada and the U.S., President Trump excepted, have had a record of denial to what some believe is an ongo-ing invasion.In Canada, Sheikh Shafiq Hudda has accused several organizations and individuals of defamation, because they misquoted him as wishing for the eradicationŽ of all 8.2 million Israelis. In fact, he claims, he was praying for the eradication of only 6 million Israeli Zionists.ŽThanks for the clarification, Sheikh. Why is he still in Canada? As The Washington Post noted after a previous review of Saudi textbooks in 2006, despite the Saudi governments statements to the contrary, an ideology of hatred toward Christians and Jews and Muslims who do not follow Wahhabi doctrine remains in this area of the public school system. The texts teach a dual-istic vision, dividing the world into true believers of Islam (the monotheists) and unbelievers (the polytheists and infidels).This indoctrination begins in a first-grade text,Ž reported the Post, and is reinforced and expanded each year, culminating in a 12th-grade text instructing students that their religious obligation includes waging jihad against the infidel to spread the faith.ŽThe Islamic Saudi Academy in Fairfax, Virginia, closed in 2016, replaced that year by the King Abdullah Academy. The former taught that adulterers and con-verts from Islam should be killed and that The Jews conspired against Islam and its people.ŽWhy are Islamic schools that teach this stuff and the mosques that support them allowed to remain open?Some in Europe are awaken-ing to the threat of uncontrolled Muslim immigration. The U.S. and Canada would do well to follow their lead. Readers may email Cal Thomas at tcaeditors@tribpub.com.ANOTHER OPINIONIs Europe awakening to the threat? Cal Thomas

A8 Thursday, July 12, 2018 | DailyCommercial.com By Ken Ritter and Michelle L. PriceAssociated PressLAS VEGAS A Nevada judge effectively put the execution of a two-time killer on hold Wednesday after a pharmaceutical company objected to the use of one of its drugs to put someone to death.Clark County District Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez disallowed the use of the drug in a ruling that came down less than nine hours before Scott Raymond Dozier, 47, was to be executed with a threechemical injection never before tried in the U.S.Nevada prisons spokes-woman Brooke Santina had no immediate comment. State officials could appeal right away to the Nevada Supreme Court.New Jersey-based Alvo-gen had urged the judge to block the use of its sedative midazolam, saying the state illegally secured the product through "sub-terfuge" and intended it for unapproved purposes. The pharmaceutical com-pany also raised fears that the drug could lead to a botched execution, citing cases that apparently went awry elsewhere around the country.Todd Bice, an attorney with Alvogen, accused the state of deceptively obtain-ing the drug by having it shipped to a pharmacy in Las Vegas rather than the state prison in Ely. He said Alvogen had sent a letter to state officials in April telling them it opposes the use of its products in executions, particularly midazolam.The judge ruled that based on that letter, Alvogen had a reasonable probability of winning its lawsuit, and she issued the temporary restraining order against the use of the drug. Gonzalez set another hearing for Sept. 10.Alvogen said in a statement that it was pleased with the ruling and will continue to work through the legal system to ensure its products are not used in executions.A second pharmaceutical company, Sandoz, also raised objections at Wednesday's hearing to the use of one of its drugs the muscle-paralyzing substance cisatracurium in Dozier's execution. But the company did not immediately ask to formally join Alvogen's lawsuit.A third company, Pfizer, last year demanded Nevada return the third drug intended for use in the execution, the power-ful opioid fentanyl. But the state refused. Fentanyl, which has been blamed for deadly overdoses across the country, has not been used before in an execution.Jordan T. Smith, an assistant Nevada solicitor general, countered at Wednesday's hearing that Nevada didn't put up a "smokescreen" or do anything wrong in getting the drugs. He said drugs ordered by the state prison system are regu-larly shipped to Las Vegas."This whole action is just PR damage control," Smith said of Alvogen.Pharmaceutical compa-nies have resisted the use of their drugs in executions for 10 years, citing legal and ethical concerns. But the legal challenge filed by Alvogen is only the second of its kind in the U.S., said Robert Dunham, executive director of the Death Pen-alty Information Center in Washington. The previous challenge, brought last year by a different company in Arkansas, ultimately failed to stop the execution. Execution blocked after company objects to the use of its drugNevada death row inmate Scott Dozier, right, confers with Lori Teicher, a federal public defender involved in his case during an appearance in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas.

One lousy point.And then, slowly, over the next two-plus hours, all the way until the fifth set reached its 24th game, as the temperature dropped and the spectators cries of Lets go, Roger!Ž echoed through the shadows, everything came apart for the eighttime champion. Against an opponent whod never beaten him nor made it this far at the All England Club.In a stunning turnaround in an unfamiliar setting „ No. 1 Court instead of Centre Court „ the top-seeded Federer blew a third-set match point and, eventually, all of his big lead in a 2-6, 6-7 (5), 7-5, 6-4, 13-11 loss to No. 8 Kevin Anderson on Wednesday in a 4-hour, 14-minute tussle.It was just one of those days where you hope to get by somehow,Ž said Federer, who last played at No. 1 Court in 2015. I almost could have. I should have.ŽWhile his tournament is over, two of his long-time rivals at the top of tennis set up a semifinal showdown: Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. Nadal, whos won two of his 17 Grand Slam titles at Wimbledon, edged 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro 7-5, 6-7 (7), 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 in a wildly entertaining match that fea-tured diving shots by both and lasted 4 hours, 48 minutes.Djokovic, whose 12 major championships include three from the All England Club, got to his first Grand Slam semifi-nal since 2016 by beating No. 24 seed Kei Nishikori 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2.In Fridays other mens match, Anderson will face Federer stunned in Wimbledon QFNadal, Djokovic, Isner advance to semi nalsKevin Anderson of South Africa, left, shakes hands with Switzerlands Roger Federer, after defeating him in their mens quarter“ nals match at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London on Wednesday.

Croatia played three straight extra-time matches „ two ended in penalty kicks. Football will not be coming home to England, and there will be no title to match the 1966 triumph at Wembley Stadium. Harry Kane & Co. will deal with the same disap-pointment that felled Shearer and Platt, Gazza and Wazza, Beckham and Gerrard.Croatias legs at the start seemed to carry the weight of so many minutes in the knockout stage, and a press-ing England went up quickly. Kevin Trippier curled in a free kick in the fifth minute.But Croatia found energy after the break when the game opened up, making Englands missed first-half opportunities seem all-the-more significant.Ivan Perisic tied the score in the 68th minute with his fourth goal of the tournament.Rakitic switched the ball from left flank to right, where Vrsaljko crossed. Walker attempted to clear diving header but Perisic jumped and from behind raised his left boot over Walkers head to poke the ball past goalkeeper Jordan Pickford from about 8 yards.Four minutes later, Perisic hit Pickfords near post.Mandzukic scored after Walker stuck out a leg to block Josip Pivarics cross. The ball popped up and Perisic outjumped Tripper to head the ball behind the defense.Mandzukic alertly reacted to the unexpected ball in the penalty area, splitting defenders John Stones and Harry Maguire, who had taken four short steps up. The ball bounced twice, Mandzukic ran onto it and one-timed a low, left-footed shot to Pick-fords left.

DailyCommercial.com | Thursday, July 12, 2018 B3ARCA driver Natalie Decker drives her car during practice for the ARCA Series auto race Saturday at Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa. [AP PHOTO / CHARLIE NEIBERGALL] Floridas Tim Tebow celebrates during the fourth quarter of the 2008 BCS Championship game against Oklahoma in Miami. [MARK HUMPHREY/AP] No. 9 John Isner, the 33-year-old American who reached his first major semifinal in his 41st try by eliminating 2016 runner-up Milos Raonic 6-7 (5), 7-6 (7), 6-4, 6-3. Isner hit 25 aces, saved the only break point he faced, and has won all 95 of his service games in the tournament.Federer hadnt been broken until facing Anderson. Still, the 20-time major champion was leading by two sets and 5-4 in the third when, with Anderson serving, he got to Ad-Out. He could have ended things right then and there. Federer managed to return a 134 mph serve, but on his next stroke, he shanked a backhand.Back to deuce. From there, it all began to change. Anderson held for 5-all, broke to 6-5 with a violent return winner off a 97 mph second serve, then staved off three break points and closed the set with a 133 mph ace.The comeback was just beginning.I had my chances,Ž Federer said, so its disappointing.ŽThis was only the third time in Federers 20 years of contesting Grand Slam matches that he lost after taking the opening two sets; both of the other defeats came in 2011. And, according to the ATP, its the fifth time Federer lost a match at a major after holding a match point, something else that last happened seven years ago.How hard was it to see this coming?First of all, Federer was 4-0 against Ander-son, winning every set. But there was more. So much more. Federer was attempting to reach his 13th semifinal at Wim-bledon and move closer to title No. 9, both of which would have broken his own records.He came into the match having won 32 consecutive sets at Wimbledon, a run he stretched to 34 before faltering.I just kept on telling myself, I have to keep believing. I kept saying that today was going to be my day,Ž Anderson said, because you really need that mindset taking the court against somebody like Roger.ŽAnderson was the runner-up to Nadal at last years U.S. Open, but he never made it beyond the fourth round at Wimbledon until this week. He hit 28 aces against Federer, saved nine of 12 break points and managed to hold his own in the rare lengthy baseline rallies.Its like that with the big servers,Ž Federer said. Youre never really safe.ŽAs the fifth set became as much a test of mental strength as anything, from 4-all to 6-all to 8-all to 10-all, Ander-son stayed steady. It was Federer who blinked, double-faulting to face a break point at 11-all, then slapping a forehand into the net.Anderson, a 32-year-old South African who played college tennis at Illinois, served it out, ending things with a 128 mph service winner before raising both arms. TENNISFrom Page B1Trophy in 2007. He is one of the most decorated players in college football history.In his four-year UF career, Tebow threw for 9,285 yards and 88 touchdowns and rushed for 2,947 yards and 57 touchdowns.The Ring of Honor was established in 2006 and unveiled on Sept. 30 of that year as part of the 100-year celebration of Gator football.Smith, Spurrier, Wuerffel and Youngblood were part of the original unveiling. Marshall was the most recent inductee in 2007. TEBOWFrom Page B1 the crush.England went ahead with its ninth set-piece goal of the tournament, after Luca Modric tripped Dele Alli, giving England a free kick about 25 yards out in the center of the field.Trippier struck the ball with his right foot and it rose above leaping Dejan Lovren and Mandzukic to the left of the desperate dive of goalkeeper Danijel Subasic, who turned his head and watched the ball land in the upper corner.With his first international goal, just over a year after his England debut, the 27-year-old Trippier joined David Beckham as the only Eng-lish players since 1966 to score on free kicks at the World Cup. Choruses of God Save the QueenŽ began in Englands end.Kane had a chance to double the lead in the 30th minute when Sub-asic made a sliding save on his short-range shot and Kanes follow-up effort from the end line hit the post and bounced off the keeper and up as the flag went up. Jesse Lingard sent an open 18-yard shot just wide in the 35th.England had its moments to come back but could not finish its chances. Lingard failed to connect with a Kane through ball in 78th, Kane miss-hit a header off a free kick in stoppage time, and Stones header from a corner was cleared off the line by Vrsaljko in the 99th.As the action went end to end, Croatia had its chances, too. Pickford rushed off his line and stuck out his right leg to block Mandzukics poke-in attempt of Perisics cross near the end of the first extra-time period. WORLD CUPFrom Page B1Englands Kieran Trippier, right, challenges for the ball with Croatias Ivan Strinic during the semi“ nal match between Croatia and England at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, Russia, Wednesday [AP PHOTO/REBECCA BLACKWELL] Venturini said. Were a championship-caliber team. Were putting the best drivers in the seat, male or female.ŽVMS push to use women as both crew members and drivers came long before recently retired Cup series driver Danica Patrick set foot on a race track.Team owner Bill Venturini won Automobile Racing Club of America titles in 1987 and 1991, the first coming with an allfemale pit crew „ known as the Ultra Blue CrewŽ „ led by his wife and team co-owner Cathy Venturini.When that happened, the whole idea of it was, were competitors first. It was not a publicity stunt,Ž Tom Venturini said. We had the best physically fit women to do that job. They outper-formed the men. It really just happened to be that they were women on the crew.ŽIn subsequent years, the team has given seats to the likes of Milka Duno, Alli Owens, Johanna Long, Nicole Behar and others. Breanna OLeary is a member of VMS pit crew this season as a tire changer.The latest woman hoping to prove shes worthy of a top-tier ride with the help of VMS is 21-year-old Decker, a Wisconsin native in her first full season in ARCA.Father Chuck Decker was both a race car and snowmobile racer. He also owns the Eagle Grove Derby Track in Wisconsin, which hosts the annual World Cham-pionship Snowmobile Derby.Chuck tried to get Natalie into snowmobiling, though it never stuck. He took her to a go-kart track when she was 6, and it ignited a passion for racing cars.Decker soon started watching NASCAR races every week with her father, who got his daughter her first go-kart when she was 9.The goal has always been NASCAR. Even before I started racing, I remem-ber when I was super young I told him that I wanted to race NASCAR,Ž she said. Decker won races in go-karts, late models, trucks and stock cars as a young-ster. NASCAR pegged her for its Drive for Diversity program in 2015, and Decker tried but failed to qualify for a NASCAR truck series race at Martinsville in 2016.She then raced a lim-ited schedule in the ARCA series last season before landing a full-time ride for 2018.Decker, one of the older drivers in ARCA, got off to a promising start by win-ning the pole and finishing fifth at the season opener at Daytona. But she had hernia surgery in late May and finished outside the top 10 in four of her last five races.Decker views this year as an educational oppor-tunity, with an eye toward fulfilling her dream of competing in NASCAR.I feel like its just all learning, because all these kids got to learn at such a young age, and I dont feel like Im that much older than them,Ž Decker said. Its been great so far.Ž STOCK CARFrom Page B1 By Andrew DampfThe Associated PressQUIMPER, France „ Peter Sagan had the yellow jersey holder to thank for his victory on Stage 5 of the Tour de France on Wednesday. Chris Froome could also thank his Team Sky colleagues for keeping him out of danger „ and help-ing overcome a mechanical problem „ in the races first hilly stage. Greg Van Avermaet mistimed his sprint and Sagan, the three-time reigning world champion with the Bora-Hansgrohe team, took advantage to claim his second victory in this years event.I dont know if he did it on purpose or if he wanted to drop everybody but I have to say thanks,Ž Sagan said.Van Avermaet still increased his overall lead over BMC teammate Tejay van Garderen to two seconds by gaining precious time in an intermediate bonus sprint.After a move from Philippe Gilbert, Van Aver-maet accelerated out of the final turn with 300 meters (yards) to go but couldnt maintain his pace.I tried to win the stage but it was pretty compli-cated,Ž Van Avermaet said. Phil went early and hes still pretty close on GC (general classification) so I couldnt let him go. I think I went too early in the sprint. I thought the corner was closer to the finish than it really was.ŽIn a repeat of Stage 2, Sagan held off Sonny Colbrelli in the sprint, with Gilbert finishing third.Sagan clocked nearly five hours over the undulating leg through Brittany, which contained five categorized climbs over a 127-mile route from Lorient to Quimper, and resembled a single-day classic.Gilbert, a former world champion, moved up to third overall, three seconds off the pace.Froome, the four-time champion who trails Van Avermaet by 57 seconds in 15th spot, finished in the main pack with the other favorites.There was a nervy moment for the British rider when he had to stop due to a mechanical issue with 70 kilometers remaining.Teammate Michal Kwiat-kowski attempted to fix the problem but Froome was later forced to stop again and change his bike.Kwiatkowski and two other teammates then quickly escorted Froome back to the peloton.Froome and Sky were also at the front in the finale, ceding the lead to the stage hunters only in the final kilometer.Everyone knew that was going to be a tricky finish today, a very undulating day „ never really flat „ just up and down,Ž Froome said. A nice day to have behind us.Its the kind of stage where something can be wrong and you quickly find yourself losing 30-40 seconds if you get caught out of position. It was a day to stay up front and really stay on it.ŽSeven riders broke away eight kilometers into the stage.

Its really about 80-odd years of geopolitical atrocity born of the Third Reich evolving into an uneasy peace between Germany and Israel. Its a fragile relationship rookie writer-director Ofir Raul Graizer deftly folds into an ethnic pie involving a gay Berliner and a widowed Israeli — both mourning the same lover. The deceased, Oren (Roy Miller), was done in by a sweet tooth that could only be satiated by the decadent chocolate confections concocted by Tomas (Tim Kalkhof), the Berlin pastry chef the Israeli regularly visited on his monthly business trips to Germany. Unfortunately for Orens cafe-owning wife, Anat (Sarah Adler, equaling her excellent work in FoxtrotÂŽ), Tomas served more than just cake to her cheating hubby. Fate (or was it karma?) catches up with Oren when hes killed in a car crash near his home in Jerusalem, news that fails to reach an increasingly worried Tomas until weeks later. Like Marina, the secret lover in the Oscar-winning A Fantastic Woman,ÂŽ Tomas possesses a key Oren left behind. Curious, he travels to Jerusalem to see what it unlocks in his mans gym locker. Its a bright-red Speedo, natch, that Tomas lovingly commences wearing to bed. Youd think that would be that, but Tomas curiosity draws him in the direction of Anats struggling cafe, where he offers to lend a hand without ever revealing his connection to Oren. You can pretty much guess the rest. Surprise isnt Graizers strong suit. Cakemaker is a bittersweet dramaSarah Adler and Tim Kalkhof in a scene from The CakemakerÂŽ [FILM BASE BERLIN] The CakemakerÂŽ Cast includes Sarah Adler, Tim Kalkhof, Zohar Shtrauss and Roy Miller.

C2 Thursday, July 12, 2018 | DailyCommercial.com By Mesfin FekaduThe Associated PressA month ago, Drakes world was crumbling. Now, hes untouchable. Pusha Ts infamous diss track „ where he was in full investigative journalist mode, divulging new information about Drake while also shading his mother, father and bestie „ hit Drake hard. Drakes reply „ well, lack thereof, marked a low for the rapper-singer, who had surprised music fans when he won his rap beef with Meek Mill in 2015. But Drake, who has been criticized by some as too commercial and too soft, is back on top seemingly unfazed. And those fans who enjoyed the revelations in Pusha Ts The Story of AdidonŽ are likely listening to Scorpion,Ž the highly anticipated, 25-track album by pop musics No. 1 player released June 29. Its not going to hurt him,Ž Carl Chery, Spotifys creative director for urban music, said of the diss track. If Drake comes out with his new single, youre not going to listen to it? Everyone is going to run and play it. And its going to become an Instagram caption.Ž Scorpion,Ž which features songs with Jay-Z and a previously unreleased Michael Jackson track, includes the massive No. 1 hits Gods PlanŽ and Nice for What.Ž Its expected to debut at No. 1, and it was already heavily trending on social media ahead of its release. Over the last few weeks, Drake memes were also trending, but it wasnt advance publicity he would have hoped for. Instead, the rapper „ derided for being too sensitive by some hip-hop heads „ was being roasted after the release of The Story of Adidon,Ž which besides going for the jugular lyrically, also featured as its cover a photo of Drake in blackface (which the rapper explained was a publicity shot from his acting days from a project about the difficulties black actors face). Pusha T started the beef with a line in his recently released album Daytona,Ž and Drake responded with a whole track of digs in the song Duppy Freestyle.Ž It seemed he won the battle until Pusha T released his track „ and Drake went silent. Damien Scott, Complexs editor-in-chief and vice president of content and development, said that he thought Drake might have gone back in the studio to re-record ScorpionŽ following Pusha Ts shocking revelation that Drake was a father (A babys involved, its deeper than rap/ We talkin character, let me keep with the facts/You are hiding a child, let that boy come homeŽ). I think that the diss had an effect on him personally and as an artist,Ž said Scott, who said the song wouldnt put a dent in Drakes professional career. Hes never been in this space before. Hes never been on his left foot before and I dont think he knows what thats like.ŽDiss-orientationMonth after diss track, Drake emerges unfazed with new album TOP SONGS 1. Girls Like You (feat.

But they also have turned the volume back up, reverting to the muscular sound that made their self-titled debut album so promising. This is road music. It might make you step on the gas a little harder. Much of Greetings from the Neon FrontierŽ lands somewhere on the Tom Petty-Eagles spectrum, evoking rock n roll influences that have always been obvious with this talented band. A track called Wildfire,Ž for example, has a Peaceful Easy FeelingŽ ring to it, and Hold Onto LoveŽ features the kind of adventurous melody and power chord jangle that set Petty apart. But this is a better album than the bands sophomore set, Lonely Is a Lifetime,Ž which didnt quite capture the spirit of a group that burst on the scene five years ago with a fresh take on a sound others had pioneered. Happily, the band has put the focus back where it belongs: on harmony and the kind of acoustic-electric rock that gets your adrenalin going. Songs like Golden DaysŽ and Big SkyŽ celebrate simple things like wide open spaces and the way things used to be. No, theyre not the first band to take on those ideas. But they can still make the hours on the highway fly by.Wild Feathers take to the road Greetings from the Neon FrontierThe Wild Feathers (Warner Music Nashville) MUSIC & BOOKSMUSIC REVIEW BOOK REVIEW By Oline H. CogdillThe Associated PressCanadian author Sheena Kamal continues to show how cultural touchstones reverberate into adulthood in her intriguing look at Vancouver research assistant Nora Watts, whose major investigations are uncovering her past. Nora technically isnt a detective, though shes worked for one, and her skills at finding people are unmatched. But Kamals second novel delves deeper into Noras prickly personality, shaped by her biracial background and the series of foster homes in which she was raised. It All Falls DownŽ takes Nora further away from her tenuous comfort zone. Shes approached by a stranger while walking her dog, Whisper, in a park. The man claims to have served in the Marines with her late father, Samuel, while they were stationed in Lebanon. He suggests that Samuel didnt commit suicide as Nora and her sister, Lorelei, have long believed, and that his death may be related to her fathers life in Detroit. Samuel was one of the many children who were part of Canadas Sixties Scoop,Ž in which children of indigenous background were taken from their families and put up for adoption, often to American parents. Noras trip to Detroit also yields a link to her mother, who left when she and Lorelei were toddlers. Back in Vancouver, private investigator Jon Brazuca, with whom Nora has a fractured relationship, is hired to investigate the drug overdose of a billionaires pregnant mistress. Without resorting to cliches, Kamal deftly intersects the investigations of Nora and Jon in a believable plot. Both find themselves targets of killers, and neither knows why. Kamals affinity for the unusual, character-driven mystery excels in It All Falls Down.Ž While Kamal supplies plenty of action and close calls, she concentrates on the characters motivations. Noras background has given her a mistrust of people and made her wary of emotions. Jon, who also was her AA sponsor, has never been able to break through her wall. Her closest relationship is with Whisper. A sense of sadness permeates Falls It All Falls DownBy Sheena Kamal (William Morrow) Drakes Scorpion,Ž the highly anticipated, 25-track album by pop musics No. 1 player, was released June 29.

DEAR ABBY: My brother-in-law "Charles" has earned the privilege of being buried in a military cemetery. He lost his wife, "Claire," to cancer 10 years ago; she is buried in their plot in the military cemetery with a headstone. Their children are all adults now. Charles has been seriously dating a divorcee, "Joyce," and they are talking about marriage. Joyce feels that for him to be committed to her in marriage, they should have a plot together. It's our understanding that only one wife is allowed to be buried in the military cemetery. This would mean Claire would have to be exhumed and transferred to another one. I'm not sure how close Joyce is to her family, but she does have grown children. I suggested they get an outside opinion and a prenuptial agreement before they get married, which both would be agreeable to. What have others done in similar situations? -CONCERNED IN NEW HAMPSHIRE DEAR CONCERNED: There are different types of military cemeteries in this country, 135 of which are maintained by the Department of Veterans Affairs National Cemetery Administration. (None of them are located in your state.) However, there are many state and private military cemeteries nationwide, and their rules may differ from those of the national. Because you didn't mention which category your brother-in-law's cemetery falls under, the best advice I can offer is to contact it and nd out what its rules are in circumstances like this.DEAR ABBY: I tend to be a people pleaser. So when my wife wanted to buy a home for us to raise a family in, I went along with her plan to move to her hometown. I wanted her to be happy, and I was excited about the home-purchasing process. It's almost two years later, and I regret it. I'm not happy here. I miss my hometown where all my friends and family live. It's a beach town, a throwback to a time when everyone knew everyone and you could walk or bike-ride anywhere. People don't lock their doors, and homes are insulated from the streets and trafc, so kids can play freely outside. To me, it's the perfect town. But there is no convincing my wife to try giving my hometown a shot as our full-time residence. Despite knowing we will never be able to own a summer house there, that's the "dream" my wife sells to me. I resent her because she got what she wants, and I just have to deal with it. Should I just accept my fate? -RESENTFUL IN NEW YORK DEAR RESENTFUL: I am sorry you are unhappy with the decision you made. Your wife may have wanted to move to her hometown because she felt her relatives could help out with your children, which is a plus. However, unless you nd the strength to assert yourself, "accepting your fate" is exactly what you may have to do. 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 www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

YESTERDAYS SOLUTION BRIDGE CRYPTOQUOTE HOROSCOPES TODAY IN HISTORY DIVERSIONS HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2018:This year you break precedence; you might opt for a change in the status quo in some area of your life. If you are unsure about whether to jump to the next phase in your life, know that the decision probably will be made for you. Try to avoid power plays or control games. If you are single, you are likely to meet someone who could have a major effect on your life. Just ow with the situation. If you are attached, the two of you might make a major lifestyle change. A fellow CANCER is going through a similar change to what youre experiencing.ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Pressure pulls you in the opposite direction of where you are headed. You might feel lost as a result. A partner tries to point you toward what he or she feels is the right path. Your feelings could be soaring out of control. Be careful about what you say or do. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Do not allow another person to push you beyond your limits. Anything involving communication might prove to be a hassle. Youll want to avoid making purchases today. You could opt to head in a new direction once you hear some news. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Your more possessive side could emerge with a power play. Someone wants more control over your nances than you care to give. How this control game plays out could be more signicant than you realize. Ask yourself what is important to you here. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) You are a sign that is ruled by the Moon, and todays solar eclipse could hit you hard. You might need to wait at least six months to understand the meaning of this event. You will have a clue one week and one month from today. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) You might not understand your need to pull back. Todays solar eclipse could be emotionally and/or physically draining. Do not push past your limits at the moment. You could be accident-prone, or you might make a nancial error. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) You might want to take some time to reect on everything that has happened. You might be heading toward a collision with a friend. Be careful not to lose sight of your priorities. A situation might develop that could change your status. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Tension seems to be building. You sense the push and pull of a situation, and might feel the need to change what is occurring. Try not to respond to a friends controlling ways. The less said now, the better. Remain focused on your priorities. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You feel the energy of the solar eclipse. Your mind yearns to explore a new area or do some traveling, even if it is just being an armchair traveler. In the next week or month, you could meet a foreigner who opens doors for you. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22DEC. 21) You might have a lot going on with you involving a partnership, a nancial matter and/or a promotion. Though you could be highly emotional about the issue, you probably wont understand it for several months. Expect changes to happen. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22JAN. 19) Emotions run high, especially when dealing with a loved one. You might not be sure of what you want. Understand that you and this person might be somewhat out of sync. Listen to each other more carefully. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) With all the twists and turns of the day, you could become cranky, tired and a bit sarcastic. Understand that others around you might be off as well. Try to do your work and keep to yourself for now. Relationships could be volatile. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You might have difculty controlling your thoughts. Your mind wanders from a friendship to a budding romance. You seem to be able to deal with todays eclipse by allowing humor to take over. Others could use some of your lightness.

The story of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and how they came to be is told in a uniquely irreverent, amusing way. We have an excellent cast, great singing and excellent dancing … you will enjoy it,Ž said director Carlos Asse. What more can you want in a night of entertainment?Ž Rude Frenchmen, cancan dancers, the Lady of the Lake and her Laker Girls, killer rabbits, catapulting cows, and the somewhat odd knights who say niŽ are just part of the adventures and dangers awaiting King Arthur and his knights of the very, very, very round table in their quest for the holy grail. Lovingly ripped off from the motion picture, Monty Python and the Holy Grail,Ž SpamalotŽ is a Broadway hit and spirited parody of the Arthurian legend. Its fun, whether youre a Monty Python fan or not … this play is fun,Ž Asse said. Cost: $11 to $21. Details: baystreetplayers.org. Upcoming CHARLEYS AUNTThe Moonlight Players in Clermont presents the comedy Charleys AuntŽ July 20 to Aug. 5.

A wild afternoon of mistaken identity, young love, old love, angry uncles, and one beautiful, exotic aunt ensues.

The play takes you on a journey down the rabbit hole into a land of colorful characters and classic literature. Details: melonpatchplayers.com. STAGEFrom Page C1But he does know how to tell a compelling tale about cultures clashing, as the combatants learn to put the past behind via their shared interests and convenient ability to speak English, the language of the nation that put both their countries back on the map after WWII. That would be us, of course. That Graizer does this through the prism of food „ glorious food „ more than whets your appetite for an allegory thats both kosher and sweet. I particularly admired his juxtaposition of Tomas solitary approach to staging a feast with the communal method favored by Hebrews. A theme deepened by the irony of Tomas imaginative creations being born in the staid environment of Anats kosher kitchen, much to the displeasure of her bythe-Torah brotherin-law, Moti (Zohar Shtrauss), who is more than a little suspicious of Anats new helper.Ž Its a feeling thats contagious, as you too begin to wonder what taciturn Tomas is up to in winning the affections of both Anat and her young son, Itai (Tamir Ben Yehuda). Could it be he simply needs to be as close to Orens spirit as he can get in the wake of his lovers death? It certainly seems that way when you see the unmistakable expression of love on Tomas face when he slips on Orens old clothes, garments Anat gifts him unaware hes the man who ripped holes in the fabric of her marriage. Its inevitable that Anats suspicions will grow „ along with her desires „ the more time she spends with Tomas in the intimacy of her steamy kitchen. Your instinct is to swoon, but that hinky feeling about Tomas unspoken motives prevents it, right up to their first kiss. You also find it just a little too convenient that a gay man might be open to suddenly switching teams.Ž It rings a bit false, but theres no doubt Kalkhof and Adler work their darndest to sell it. Far more successful is the movies striking metaphor for two nations born out of an unspeakable past trying to work together despite growing fissures associated with Germanys open door to Middle Eastern refugees.
