Still, by the time it was over he was ebullient, saying that European allies and Canada had really stepped up their commitmentŽ „ and intimating that his relentless hectoring had forced other allies to spend more than NATOs long-term goal of 2 percent of GDP on defense.NATO insists its united as Trump lashes alliesBy Jonathan Lemire and Jill ColvinThe Associated PressBLENHEIM PALACE, England „ President Donald Trump traded one hot spot for another Thursday, leaving behind a contentious NATO gathering in Brussels and moving on to Britain, where he found a government in turmoil and sizable protests shadowing his every move.

But the states top court has now agreed to consider whether Syeds murder conviction should actually be reinstated. Arguments in the case are scheduled to be heard in the courts December session, according to court documents. Its far from clear when a decision might come.LAS VEGASRaid nets 4,000 pot plants in Death Valley National ParkFederal law officers have seized more than 4,000 marijuana plants at a growing operation in Death Valley National Park thanks to a tip from hikers in the area along the California-Nevada line.Rangers for the National Park Service and Bureau of Land Management raided the site July 3 after the hikers encountered three men installing irrigation hose near a spring in the Mojave Deserts Hanaupah Canyon. The hikers thought the men were working on a park project but when they asked what they were doing, one told them they were growing marijuana. He reportedly said, You wont tell the cops, will you?Ž No arrests have been made.BERLINPolice punch anti-Semitic assault victim by mistakeGerman police say a 50-year-old Israeli professor was set upon by a German man with Palestinian roots who hit the victims kippa off his head and shoved him while yelling, No Jew in Germany.ŽPolice in the city of Bonn said the assault happened in a park on Wednesday afternoon. A police statement says the pro-fessors companion reported it, but the officers who arrived knocked the professor to the ground and hit him in the face, initially mistaking the victim for the perpetrator. Bonn Police Chief Ursula Brohl-Sowa met with the pro-fessor on Thursday to apologize for the officers mistake.

[MARKUS SCHREIBER/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO]Nearly half of those under the age of 5 have yet to be reunited with their familiesBy Colleen LongThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ The Trump administration said Thursday all eligible small children separated from their families as a result of its zero-tolerance immigration policy have been reunited with their parents.But nearly half of the children under 5 remain separated from their families because of safety concerns, the deportation of their par-ents and other issues, the administration said.The administration was under a court mandate to reunify families separated between early May and June 20, when President Donald Trump signed an executive order that stopped separations. The American Civil Liberties Union filed a law-suit on behalf of a woman who had been separated from her child, and U.S. District Court Judge Dana Sabraw ordered all children reunited with their parents.Fifty-seven children were reunified with their parents as of Thursday morning, administration officials said.Throughout the reunifi-cation process, our goal has been the well-being of the children and returning them to a safe environment,Ž according to a statement from the heads of the three agencies responsible for the process. Of course, there remains a tremendous amount of hard work and similar obstacles facing our teams in reuniting the remaining families. The Trump administration does not approach this mission lightly.ŽACLU lawyers said regardless of the reunifications, the government missed the court-ordered deadline and they would be deciding how to address the noncompliance with the court.If in fact 57 children have been reunited because of the lawsuit, we could not be more happy for those fami-lies. But make no mistake about it: the government missed the deadline even for these 57 children,Ž attorney Lee Gelernt said.The officials said 46 of the children were not eligible to be reunited with their parents; a dozen parents had already been deported and were being contacted by the administration. Nine were in custody of the U.S. Marshals Service for other offenses. One adults location was unknown, they said.Of the deported parents, officials said they had chosen to leave their children behind. One deported father, however, told the Los Angeles Times earlier this week that he didnt real-ize what he was doing when he signed the paperwork to leave his child behind. It wasnt clear if he was one of the dozen; no names have been made public.In 22 other cases, adults posed safety concerns, they said. Officials said 11 adults had serious criminal histories including child cruelty, murder or human smuggling. Seven were not determined to be a parent, one had a false birth certificate, one had allegedly abused the child. Another planned to house the child with an adult charged with sexually abusing a child.The seriousness of the crimes is the reason why we are not going to reunite them,Ž said Matthew Albence of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, of the 22 cases.The 46 children will remain in the care of Health and Human Services, which will continue to seek to place them with a sponsor, such as other family members or even foster care, as it does for the more than 10,000 other minors who arrived in the U.S. without a relative. Children spend an average of 57 days in shelters before theyre placed with a sponsor. They are given access to medical care and counseling, as well as school.The zero-tolerance policy calls for the criminal prosecution of anyone caught crossing the border illegally. Because parents cant take their children to jail, they were separated. The move caused an international uproar. At least 2,300 children were separated from about 2,200 adults until the executive order was signed. Federal officials have been scrambling to reunite the children under a tight, two-week deadline set by the judge.Part of the issue, adminis-tration officials said, is that the systems werent set up to reunify parents with their children. Health and Human Services manages their care inside the U.S. Homeland Security has control over adults in immigration detention, and the Justice Department manages the immigration courts.Many children remain separatedIn this image taken from video, Javier Garrido Martinez, left, and Alan Garcia, right, sit with their 4-year-old sons during a news conference Wednesday in New York.

The car was driven by Darryl Pulley, 35. A fourth adult, Tiffany Allen, 35, was in the car, along with a baby in the back seat with-out a diaper, food, water or child safety seat.Wilson and Griffith said they had left the children with friendsŽ at Lake Louisa Cops: Couple left kids alone Grif“ th Wilson Critics decry giving state oversight in approval of new schoolsBy John Kennedy GateHouse FloridaTALLAHASSEE … A ballot proposal seen as promot-ing more charter schools by letting supporters sidestep county school boards was challenged as misleading Thursday in a lawsuit by the Florida League of Women Voters.The league is asking a Leon County court to remove from the November ballot proposed constitutional Amendment 8 that was placed there by the states Constitution Revision Commission.Along with the charter school change, the measure creates eight-year term limits for school boards members and encourages the teaching of civic literacy in schools.But the lawsuits focus is on the proposal allowing the Legislature to create some kind of state-level admin-istration to approve charter schools.Voters will not recog-nize that the real purpose of the amendment is to allow unaccountable political appointees to control where and when charter schools can be established in their county,Ž said Patricia Brigham, league president and a party in the lawsuit.Under current state law, only local school boards can approve the formation of charter schools.

He was bloody and bruised but alive after a life-and-death struggle.He was leaving with the night bank deposit when he was accosted by a man wearing black clothing and a black mask. The man pointed a silver-colored handgun at him and said, Give me the money.ŽThe victim advised he threw up his hands in an attempt to block the weapon from pointing at his face and began striking the subject with his right fist.ŽThe gunman fought back, hitting the manager on the right side of his head with the firearm.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture closed out its monthly forecast report for the current growing season without veering from its June projection, made when essentially all the fruit was picked. The latest numbers showed that growers produced 34.7 percent fewer oranges and half the number of grapefruits than a year ago. The bottom line for Florida is we had no change from the previous forecast,Ž said Mark Hudson, U.S. Department of Agri-culture state statistician. Ravaged by the September hurricane just as growers felt they were make headway in a decade-long fight against citrus greening disease, growers saw overall production at its lowest … 49.58 million 90-pound boxes, the industry standard … since the 1941-1942 growing season. Grapefruit production on its own, 3.88 million boxes, hit its lowest output since 1920. Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam has called the season horrible.Ž The latest figures did provide some consolation for Florida growers, many of whom suffered losses of more than 70 percent due to Irma: Collectively, they remained ahead of California in terms of orange production. However, where less than a decade ago Florida doubled its western counterpart in orange production, this seasons Sunshine State orange crop filling 44.95 million boxes … a fifth of the states production 20 years ago … barely edged out the 44 million similar-sized boxes packed in California. Another positive for the industry is that by Monday farmers may be able to start applying for longawaited federal disaster relief that was part of a $2.36 billion agriculture package approved by Congress and signed by President Donald Trump in February. Since April, the program has been targeted to start by July 16, with federal officials saying their goal was to start even earlier. The U.S. Department of Agricultures Farm Service Agency continues to state on its website that the agency is working quickly to implement this program.Ž The money is slated to assist recovery efforts associated with hurri-canes in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico and wildfires in California. Florida has estimated its agriculture losses from Irma total $2.5 billion, with citrus accounting for at least $761 million of those losses. Florida Citrus Mutual Executive Vice President Mike Sparks has advised members to quickly set up appointments for the relief. Under the federal aid, growers that received 75 percent of their adjusted gross income from agriculture will be eligible for up to $900,000 from the Wildfire and Hurricane Indemnity Program Seeds of discontentJohn Barben, an Avon Park-based citrus g rower and president of Florida Citrus Mutual (left), shows U.S. Senators Bill Nelson (center) and Marco Rubio (right) some damage done to the statewide crops from Hurricane Irma in a grove south of Lake Wales, Florida, on Sept. 13, 2017.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers flushes water from the lake to reduce pressure on its aging dike. In a statement Thursday, Col. Jason Kirk said Okeechobee's rising water levels pose a major flood risk to nearby communities. Coastal communities say the discharges spread toxic algae, threatening tourism and health. Senate and gubernatorial candidates in both parties have made the discharges a cam-paign issue in a crucial election year. The Trump administration has approved a new Everglades reservoir to store more water south from the lake, but Con-gress must approve those plans. Gov.

Born September 15, 1933 in Imperial, Nebraska to John Henry and Mary Ellen (Develin) Shutze. Dr. Shutze came to the area in the late 90s from Leesburg, Florida. Graduating from Creighton University, he practiced clinical pathology in the Lake county area for 40 years. He established one of the “rst freestanding clinical laboratories in the state of Florida. Past president of the Florida Blood Banking Society, he was also the Chief Medical Examiner of District 5 for over 20 years. A member of Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church, and the Smyrna Yacht Club, he enjoyed playing bridge with his many friends of the area. Dr. Shutze enjoyed traveling around the world with his beloved late wife Margaret of 55 years. Survivors include one son, William Shutze; two daughters, Susan Rendon and Anne Shutze; four grandchildren, Rachel, Spencer, William, and Ryan. A special thank you to his caregivers, Erin, Ashley, and Crystal for their wonderful care over the years. He is preceded in death by his parents, and loving wife Margaret. A funeral service will be held 1:00 p.m. at the graveside on Saturday, July 14, 2018 at Sea Pines Memorial Gardens, 3001 S. U.S. Highway 1, Edgewater, Florida, 32141, with Father J.

A growers insurance coverage will factor into the WHIP payments. More coverage can generate higher payments, accord-ing to Sparks. We understand there is a lot of complexity to WHIP and accompanying paperwork,Ž Sparks wrote to members. But we believe this is a fair program that will provide the necessary funding to get growers back on their feet in addition to building a foundation for the industry to expand in the coming decade.Ž Growers eventually also will be able to seek additional funds from a $340 million block grant the state is getting for citrus growers. Under the block grant proposal, an insured citrus growers financial recovery cannot exceed 85 percent of estimated losses. For unin-sured growers, the cap is 65 percent of their losses. The Florida Division of Emergency Management will oversee the block grant funding, which will be available to replace damaged or destroyed trees, cover future economic losses and help pay the cost of crop insurance, division spokesman Alberto Mos-coso said in an email. The block grant will be open only to those growers who first apply for the WHIP money. SEEDSFrom Page A3 managers cellphone, but the manager begged him not to take it. He said he wanted to be able to call his wife and tell her he would be coming home late.The gunman ordered him to put the phone in his car trunk and told him not to call anyone for five minutes. He fled on foot. Four minutes later, the manager entered the restaurant and called 911.Deputies said the manager recognized Davis as an employee from another country club when his mask fell off during the fist fight. The deputies tracked him to an address in the 300 block of Alteza Lane.There, they met Allison J. Lauricella, 31, who identified herself as Davis girlfriend. She said Davis was inside the house, which belongs to her parents, who were not home. She was moved to a safe location, and a special weapons team negotiator tried several times to get him to come out. At one point during the 10-hour standoff, while four SWAT team members were setting up a perim-eter, they passed a window in the house. At that point, Davis came to the window that they were passing and pointed a silver handgun'' at the deputies.One of the deputies yelled Gun!Ž The team members scurried out of the line of fire.Later, SWAT team members maneuvered an armored vehicle up toward the house and used a boom on the front of it to break a window.Davis opened the garage door and sped off in an SUV. Deputies opened fire and the vehicle maneuvered around the armored vehicle, breaking the boom.Deputy Phillip Boutros, whose patrol vehicle was nearby, heard the shots firedŽ call over his radio and joined two other vehicles in the chase.The defendant, while operating the vehicle, had a wanton disregard for property and for the safety of pedestrians as he was driving other vehicles and golf carts off the roadway, and crashed into a gate arm located on Moyer Loop and Boardroom Trail,Ž he wrote in his report.Davis made his way to Micro Racetrack Road in Lake County. Boutros said he tried to ram the getaway vehicle, but both ended up crashing through a barbed-wire fence. He joined two other deputies in dragging Davis through the drivers side window and placing him under arrest.Davis was taken to the Villages Regional Medi-cal Center. When a deputy tried to question him, Davis said, You know what Im about to [expletive] tell you.Ž His only comment was to demand an attorney.The sheriffs report indicated that he has 11 prior felony convictions. He apparently has a penchant for driving with a suspended drivers license.Additional charges filed by the sheriffs office include aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, criminal mischief ($10,000 damage to the boom on the armored car), and possession of drug paraphernalia (deputies found a bloody syringe in his pocket).He was also hit with the following traffic charges: two counts of hit and run with property damage, three counts of fleeing and eluding and one charge of driving with a suspended license, three or more times, which is a third-degree felony.Lauricella was also arrested.

He was 84.The Jupiter Island resident who started his career in the family real estate and hotel business, the Hobe Sound Company, began his state work under Republican Gov. Claude R. Kirk Jr. in 1967. He later was appointed by Democratic Gov. Bob Graham to the South Florida Water Manage-ment District, where he served for 14 years.Reeds son, Adrian, told The Tampa Bay Times his father died a week after falling on a gravel riverbank while fishing in Canada.The environmental icon received bipartisan accolades as news of his death spread Wednesday."Floridians for generations to come are indebted to Nathaniel Reed for protecting our beautiful environment and our Florida Everglades," U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist, a Democrat who served as Florida governor as a Republican, said in a statement. "We will honor his memory by recommitting ourselves to being good stewards of our environment."U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney, a Republican who at one time represented the Treasure Coast, tweeted that Reed was a great man and mentor.ŽSenate Presi-dent Joe Negron, a Stuart Republican whose district includes Jupiter Island, called Reed a resolute force of nature who devoted his life to protecting the environment of Florida and the United States.ŽI will personally never forget his unwav-ering support for the Senate Bill 10 EAA Southern Reservoir and his lifelong commitment to Everglades restoration,Ž Negron said in a statement. Mr. Reed loved Jupi-ter Island, Hobe Sound and Martin County. His prominent standing in the modern history of Florida is secure and irreplaceable.ŽAnd U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, a Democrat, praised Reed on the Senate floor Wednesday, after hailing the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' support for the $1.6 billion reser-voir project.Reed was one of Floridas greatest envi-ronmental advocates,Ž Nelson said, adding that the state should name the new reservoir in Reed's honor.It saddens me so much to announce this good news at the same time of announcing the death of one of the nation's true environmental champions,Ž Nelson said. Nat and I have been so focused on advancing this new res-ervoir project south of Lake Okeechobee ...

[GATEHOUSE MEDIA FILE] there have been other sightings around town, including in the Country Club community and in the wooded area behind the W.T. Bland Public Library. When I talked to FWC about the little bear in the tree, I learned that construction is a big factor when it comes to bears, and we have a lot of it going on right now with the crossover at 441 and with the work near Wolf Branch, McDonald said. Of course these are not the first or only bear sightings in Mount Dora, but there has been an increase probably due to that construction.But there are other factors to consider, too, McDonald said, which is why she organized a Black Bear Educational Workshop from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. Aug. 1 at the public library located at 1995 North Donnelly St..FWC Bear Biologist Alyssa Simmons will lead the workshop and educate residents about what mea-sures to take to keep from attracting black bears and what to do if they spot one lurking around their neighborhood or around town.The black bear Monday may have been disrupted by construction but we think he got into some dog food, McDonald said. It made me open my eyes and I thought, 'Workshop.'"McDonald said the workshop will focus on habitat and safety.McDonald said the workshop is not just open to Mount Dora residents but to anyone in Lake County and surrounding areas who wants to learn more about black bear activity in general.McDonald said Sorrento residents may even want to attend since they may be feeling affects of the construction in the vicinity. There are black bears all over Florida, so the information should be helpful to everyone. So, if anyone wants to pop over and attend the workshop, they are welcome to," McDonald said.According to a press release about the workshop, there will be handouts and literature for people to take home.The more informed we can be about Floridas Black Bears, the more we can live in harmony with them, the release reads.

Police procedurals and the current network rage for sitcom revivals certainly failed to impress Emmy voters.The short-lived revival of Roseanne, canceled because of star Roseanne Barrs racist tweet, drew only one major nomination, a supporting actress nod for Laurie Metcalf.

EMMYSFrom Page A5Now were very happy and have a very, very powerful, very, very strong NATO much stronger than it was two days ago, Trump declared after what he described as a fantastic meeting.He was, however, short on details. Thats because, despite the political rhetoric, Trump like his other 28 allies signed a summit communique that had been agreed to by their ambassadors last weekend, five days before the summit began. Not a word was changed, officials confirmed.The 23-page text did contain a reference to an old spending pledge the leaders made in 2014 after Russia annexed Ukraines Crimean Peninsula, convincing NATO of the importance of halting spending cuts. The more than 20 allies not spending 2 percent of GDP on their national military budgets pledged at the time to start investing more as their economies grew, and to move toward that goal by 2024.Quizzed about whether Trump had demanded that his allies boost their budgets beyond 2 percent, Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg who as NATO chairman has the unenviable job of speak-ing for all 29 allies said: We have made many decisions. You can read them in the declaration.French President Emmanuel Macron was more straightforward. The declaration signed by the 29 NATO leaders, he said, confirms the goal of 2 percent by 2024. Thats all.Among the most tangible decisions the allies did make was an invitation for Macedonia to join once its name dispute with Greece is resolved and a referendum held confirming its new name of North Macedonia. The leaders also signed off on a much-expanded military training mission in Iraq, and vowed to keep funding the Afghan military to the tune of around $1 billion a year until 2024.More modest announce-ments were made, most aimed at an increasingly belligerent Russia. Many have been in preparation for at least six months, having been endorsed by ambassadors, foreign and defense ministers to make it easier for the leaders to put pen to paper.

That was just one of sev-eral helicopter rides on the agenda for Trump, whose staff opted to keep him largely out of central London and the swarms of demonstrators who are likely to provide some of the defining images of his first official trip to the U.K.Trumps Marine One departure from the ambassadors residence was met by jeers from demonstrators banging pots and pans, and another pack of protest-ers lined roads near the palace. Their signs read: Dump Trump, Lock Him Up, There Will Be Hell Toupee. Police worked overtime, their days off cancelled.Trump was greeted at the palace by British Prime Minster Theresa May, whose government has been rocked by resignations from ongoing tumult over Brexit, the nations contentious vote to leave the Euro-pean Union.Before leaving Brussels, Trump played down the protests but acknowledged that he expected tension in Britain, which also was reeling from its soccer teams defeat in the World Cup semifinals.

The Associated PressBy Joe McDonald and Youkyung LeeThe Associated PressBEIJING „ China tried to step up pressure on Washing-ton in their growing tariff war Thursday by suggesting U.S. companies lobby American leaders, while a Korean union warned President Donald Trumps threat of higher auto import duties could lead to job losses in Alabama.Beijing and Washington have yet to resume negotiations over the dispute that led to tariff hikes on each others goods last week, said a spokesman for the Chinese Commerce Ministry.We hope American compa-nies do more to lobby the U.S. government and work hard to safeguard their own inter-ests,Ž said Gao Feng at a news conference.While some U.S. companies and lawmakers have criticized Trumps tactics, Gaos statement was an unusually direct attempt to rouse domestic American opposition. Beijing frequently rejects foreign com-ments about its own policies as improper interference in its affairs.Gao gave no details. His remark about lobbying was missing from an official tran-script on the ministrys website, suggesting officials recognized its potential sensitivity.The Trump administration imposed a 25 percent tariff on $34 billion of Chi-nese goods Friday in response to complaints Beijing steals or pressures companies to hand over technology. Beijing responded by imposing simi-lar duties on the same amount of imports from the United States.Washington announced a second possible round of tariff hikes Tuesday targeting a wider range of $200 billion of goods. Beijing vowed firm and forceful measuresŽ in response, but Chinas lopsided trade balance means it cannot match the full scale of American tariff hikes. That has prompted con-cern regulators might expand retaliation to trying to hamper operations of American com-panies in China.Chinese leaders have tried to deflect criticism by pointing to the benefits of trading with the worlds second-larg-est economy, a theme Gao repeated Thursday. He noted Tesla Inc.s announcement this week of plans to build a factory in Shanghai.China has a great potential consumer market that is steadily more open,Ž said Gao. We will continue to improve the business environment.ŽAs for negotiations, he said, the two sides have not been in touch about re-starting talks.ŽAt the heart of the dispute is Chinese policies including Made in China 2025,Ž a sweeping strategy that calls for state-led development of local champions in robots, bio-tech and other fields. American officials say such development strategies are based on improp-erly obtained technology and might threaten U.S. industrial leadership.Communist leaders have resisted pressure to roll back strategies they see as a path to prosperity and global leadership.In a separate statement Thursday, the Commerce Ministry tried anew to rally support from other governments, warning that Trump was threatening world trade and prosperity.Governments including Ger-many and France have resisted Chinese appeals to ally against Washington. They have criti-cized Trumps tactics but share American complaints about Beijings market barriers and industrial policy.The United States wages a trade war not just against China but against the whole world, endangering the global economy,Ž said the statement. It said China was forced to take action to defend the multilat-eral trading systemŽLobbying for helpChina says US companies should pressure Washington over trade

[AP FILE PHOTO] Once upon a time, liberals and conservatives, Democrats and Republicans, incumbents and challengers disagreed over the value of limits on campaign funding and spending, but they agreed (publicly, at least) on the need for attribution and accountability. There was broad-based agreement that the names of individuals and, later, corporations and unions should be clearly stated and open to the public „ whether they had made contributions directly to candidates or were making independent expendituresŽ linked to electioneering communication.Ž The erosion of that consensus was accelerated by a 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision, Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission. The ruling found that the First Amendment prevents the government from restricting independent expenditures by nonprofit and for-profit corporations, labor unions and associations. The Citizens United case has had many impacts, one of the most significant of which is a dramatic expansion of nonprofit organizations seeking tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(4) of the U.S. tax code. So-called 501(c)(4) organizations are, according to the tax codes, supposed to be primarily engagedŽ in promoting the common good and general welfare of the community.Ž Involvement in political campaigns is not banned, but it is not supposed to be the primary purposeŽ of a tax-exempt group. Yet many 501(c)(4) groups, including some of the largest and richest, have been overtly political or closely tied to so-called super Political Action Committees that raise funds to directly influence elections. Although contributions to the organizations are not tax deductible, they are appealing to many donors and those groups for a simple reason: Disclosure of the contributors identities is not required. There are two problems, then: € It is virtually impossible for the Internal Revenue Service to thoroughly, accurately and fairly assess whether 501(c)(4) organizations are meeting the requirements for their nonprofit status. As Robert Martineau, a former law professor, has written, it would help if Congress required the Treasury Department to change its regulation to require an exclusive commitment to social welfare. € Disclosure of donors identities should be required when the organizations clearly advocate for specific candidates, whether or not there is direct link to the candidates campaigns. After all, the organizations enjoy taxexempt status; reporting should be required in exchange. We were reminded of the role of 501(c)(4) organizations by a column in the Herald-Tribune from Zac Anderson. He described that one such organization, Floridians for a Fair Shake, recently spent $603,718 on an attack ad criticizing U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanans support for the GOP tax bill. That spending, while significant, pales in comparison to the campaign funds that Buchanan „ a Republican from Longboat Key „ has on hand and his ability to tap his personal wealth. Right-leaning groups will aid Buchanan if his general election campaign is right: The practice is bipartisan, unfortunately. Worse, the use of organizations that are exempt from naming donors has spread not only to federal and state races but to local campaigns as well „ further eroding the belief that openness and disclosure are key components of elections in a representative democracy.OUR OPINIONBe transparent with campaign contributionsIn a July 8 story, the Daily Commercial wrote about how the Residents of Sharps Mobile Home Park in Eustis have been living a life of uncertainty since March when the city announced the park was being sold to make way for the Eustis Lake Club. According to Jacqueline Husebo, spokeswoman for Husebo Marketing who represents the developer and builder, residents will be given the required six-months notice. Heres what Facebook users had to say:Unfortunately when you rent vs. own the owner owns and can sell the property. Notice was given to the renters from what Ive read in other stories. Costly to move but an owner has legal power to enforce.Ž „ Stephen Turner They own the mobile homes, and rent the lot...laws since have passed that these older homes cant be accepted and moved into a mobile home park as they are older and dont pass mobile home placement qualifications..its horrible!!!!Ž „ Lori Fawcett Im sure Morgan and Morgan is watching this carefully, one wrong move and a class action lawsuit will happen along with an emergency court order blocking it.Ž „ Steven Bradley Remember the rental contracts are legal documents.Have an attorney look at them. Good luck Orange County is absorbing Lake County and rent is shooting up like a rocket ship to mars!Ž „ Richard Province Its all there in the article. Sale has not closed, when it does they will be given 6-month eviction notice and 6k in assistance from the state.Ž „ John Scott They will only get that if they have a double wide and they move it! Which most probably cant because of the age of the homes. If they are older than 1984 they cant be moved. Per city or county laws. Unless they plan on ignoring those rules for just those individuals. I dont see that happening! Do you? So theyll end up with between$1300-$2200 estimated. Paid to them by the state.Ž „ Lisa Bolton Cousino But they have to pay some of that money back and thats not right. I have a friend that lives there. What are these people going to do? The article also said that if they choose to abandon their homes they would get like $1,600 for a single wide, $2,200 for a double wide and if they choose to bring their home with them they would get a certain amount for a single wide and a certain amount for a double wide. Not everybody is going to get $6,000. That was my understanding when I read the article.Ž „ Linda Snell It cost alot of money to move.Ž „ Colleen Lovett Fulcher I dont know who these negative people are but I do know if there elderly parents were in that situation I bet they wouldnt b so uncaring !!!!!Ž „ Barbara Warrick The city of Eustis says they have no responsibility for the residents, but I think they have a moral responsibility to helpnthese people. Ill be praying for all involved.Ž „ Patricia Carol Smith Nation This is how its going down ... once the park closes sale in August and eviction letters arrive, Im not signing my title to anyone period. I will move out per eviction notice. Then, my lawyer will pursue compensation for my mobile home without applying to the state and compensation for moving expenses.Ž „ Carolyn Osborne So dont wait. Move now!Ž „ Shannon Elliott-OliverFACEBOOK FORUMGo on, wrinkle your brow, grit your teeth, try to dream up a better nominee for Supreme Court justice than Brett Kavanaugh, and youll struggle because hes got it all. Hes a true constitutionalist with intellect, experience and solid character, but forget all of that because Democrats hysterically see grotesque peril in him and probably in a rose garden and a light blue sky. Its a peculiar time we live in. If President Donald Trump is around, critics will enumerate his myriad and sometimes serious faults and then outdo him. When he is getting things right, they are particularly distraught, given the political implications, and, in his nomination of Kavanaugh, he got a lot right. For as long as a generation or more, Kavanaugh and four other of his judicially wise colleagues could actually manage to keep the preciousness of our governmental system intact. Right now, the different opinions about Kavanaugh are labeled liberal and conservative, but its judicial philosophy that counts, not politics or outcomes that are feverishly desired no matter what the law says. In too much of the past, the courts judicial philosophy has been that the clear meanings of the Constitution should be reduced to vaporous, pick-and-choose ideals, that unmentioned rights could be invented, the content of laws contradicted, judicial limits exceeded and the other branches of government as much as replaced. Whereas the founders thought the court would be the least powerful of the governmental branches, it became the most powerful, exercising not just judgment on individual cases but dictating the social norms of the nation. We came to have something smelling a lot like an oligarchy. The Constitution was believed to be outdated, an 18th century horse-and-buggy on todays interstate highways, and instead of turning to an amendment process in which the whole nation is involved, the court has too often amended by means of what it has called interpretations. The Constitution, crowded with much of the best that has been thought and said about law, actually holds up rather well. Obviously, there is room for vigorous, honest debate about many of its passages, but the text also often speaks loudly and clearly, and to ignore that is to ignore rule of law. The justices are not picked to be legislators, but to exercise deep, thoughtful, educated judgment, and, in Kavanaugh, we have someone who has demonstrated that capacity. Early in his career, he was a clerk for Justice Anthony Kennedy, whom he will replace if he can evade attempted bites of his throat by bared-teeth Democrats as the Senate looks him over. For 12 years, he has been a judge on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals and has 300 opinions … many of them highly praised … in his pocket. For a decade, this guy from Yale Law School has taught at Harvard Law School, and professors there praise him, too, Yale background or not. He is hardly shed of controversy, having worked on the Ken Starr probe of Bill Clinton, for instance. He now believes that particular to-do disrupted governance and says presidents should be free of such investigations if not from congressional probes and possible impeachment. But oh, wow, it is shouted, he will help overturn the Roe v. Wade abortion ruling, and look, while there can be a case against some precedents, to simply eradicate this deeply imbedded ruling would be cataclysmically divisive. It wont happen. Kavanaugh has specifically said he is for nothing that far-reaching. What he is for is the Constitution, as are four justices already on the court. As a fifth justice in that camp, Kavanaugh could help in keeping ours a free, fair, lasting and solid republic in which oppression is defeated and ideological idiocies are still voiced but not in charge.

PAGE 9 | Friday, July 13, 2018 B1 SPORTSPaul Jenkins, Sports editor 352-365-8204 paul.jenkins@dailycommercial.comBy James EllingworthThe Associated PressMOSCOW „ A billion-dollar assembly of stars makes France the favorite for the World Cup final, a scenario that Dejan Lovren is pitching as perfect for Croatias big-gest ever game.We love to be the underdogs,Ž Lovren said in the wake of Croatias England 2-1 extra-time win over England.With a population of 4.3 million and a history of strug-gle, its easy to see why. Not since Uruguays win in 1950 has a country of so few people reached a World Cup final.Croatias players were born around the time an indepen-dent Croatia emerged from the wars which divided the former Yugoslavia in the early 1990s. Lovren and star midfielder Luka Modric were refugees as children.Croatia still struggles economically and its football scene has been riven with hoo-liganism, crime and politics.Its a country that breeds toughness in its players.The key to Croatias success in Russia, Lovren said, is Our mentality.ŽWar, all these things and even now the situation is not the best,Ž he said. Its unbe-lievable how many talents we have in sports.ŽTwo years ago, Croatias campaign at the 2016 European Championship was overshadowed by turmoil in the stands as fans hurled dozens of flares onto the field in protest against the football federation leadership. A year before that, a swastika was drawn on the field before a national-team game.Those episodes have led to sanctions from soccers inter-national governing body, but Lovren is hoping the squads success at this World Cup will mark a turning point for the country.Its not just football, its a bigger picture for us unfortu-nately,Ž he said. Underdog sta tus suits Croatia Mike Gillislee works with kids during his football camp at the Spec Martin Municipal Stadium in DeLand on July 7. [LOLA GOMEZ/GATEHOUSE MEDIA] By Chris BoyleGatehouse Media FloridaDELAND „ When he attended DeLand High School, Mike Gillislee earned the nick-name Mike Sco,Ž which he loosely attributes to his ability to score touchdowns. For the first three quarters of the 2017 NFL season, Gillislees first with the New England Patri-ots, it looked like he was going to do a whole lot of scoring.He found the end zone three times in the opening game against Kansas City, but as the season wore on, Gillislee rarely saw the field again. Even before his dazzling debut, Gillislee said he never felt like himself last fall.I dont believe in excuses at all,Ž Gillislee said. This year, Im healthy and ready to go. I put last year in the past. It didnt go as I planned, and that wasnt me at all.ŽThe former University of Florida standout, who hosted a free camp for more than 200 kids at Spec Martin Stadium on Saturday afternoon, may need to show up in a big way when veterans report to Patriots training camp on July 25 just to crack the 53-man roster.After leading the league in yards per carry in 2016 and signing a two-year deal worth $6.4 million to leave the Buffalo Bills, Gillislee appeared in only one of New Englands final 11 games, sustaining a sprained MCLin Week 16. He was shut down for the Patriots postseason run, which ended with an eventual loss to Philadelphia in the Super Bowl.Gillislee said he was deal-ing withhamstring injuriesas far back as April 2017, his first trip to the Patriots facility in Foxborough, Mass. In total, he ran the ball 104 times for 383 yards „ an average of 3.7 per carry „ and five touchdowns, the last of which came in the Week 16 win over Buffalo.Mikes second chance?New England Patriots running back Mike Gillislee runs against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Oct. 5, 2017, in Tampa. [JASON BEHNKEN/AP FILE] Former UF standout Gillislee hopes to bounce back in second season with PatriotsSee MIKE, B3 See CROATIA, B3By Howard FendrichThe Associated PressLONDON „ Yes, this will be Serena Williams 10th Wimbledon final. Yes, its her 30th title match at any major. And, well, sure, shes widely regarded as not just the best of her era, but any era.Let others shrug at this latest accomplishment, as if all it signified were merely another chance at another in a long line of trophies. Wil-liams is not shy about saying she, for one, is impressed by this. Rightly so. For it was only about 10 months ago she was having a baby and then dealing with a serious health scare that followed.Even after all of that, even after more than a year away from the game, even in only the fourth tournament of her comeback, Williams showed shes still capable of dominance. Especially at the All England Club, where a relatively routine 6-2, 6-4 victory over 13th-seeded Julia Goerges of Germany on Thursday put Williams one win away from an eighth championship.Shes also closing in on her 24th Grand Slam title, which would equal Margaret Courts all-time record.A lot of people were saying, Oh, she should be in the final,Ž the 36-yearold Williams said. For me its such a pleasure and a joy because, you know, less than a year ago, I was going through so much stuff.ŽAfter hitting five aces with a serve that reached 119 mph, delivering 16 winners to only seven unforced errors, and covering the court so well with speed and effort, Williams will face another German, 11thseeded Angelique Kerber, on Saturday.Whatever happens, hon-estly,Ž Williams said, its an incredible effort from me.ŽSerena Williams nears her next titleSee SERENA, B3By Sal CacciatoreNewsdayTRENTON, N.J. „ The 6,000-seat Arm & Hammer Park pales in comparison to the 90,000-seat behemoths of Southeastern Conference foot-ball, and the stakes in Wednesday nights Eastern League All-Star Game were nothing compared to the NFL playoffs.Tim Tebow was there anyway for the latest chapter in a wild career that included a Heisman Trophy, two national championships at the University of Floridaand a roller-coaster stint in the NFL before he turned to baseball and signed with the Mets in 2016.It was a great honor and something I really appreciated,Ž Tebow said of his All-Star selection. He batted ninth as the Eastern Divisions designated hitter and doubled his first time up.Although he has not domi-nated Double-A baseball the way he did as an SEC quar-terback, he generally has held his own for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies. He is hit-ting .270 with a .337 on-base percentage, .390 slugging percentage and five home runs in 76 games in his second season in pro baseball.Tebow, 30, was last on an NFL roster during the 2015 preseason, and said the tran-sition from football to baseball has required major changes in how he trains.I think even last year, being my first year in baseball, I still didnt know how my body was adjusting to playing every day for 150 games in a row, versus trying to get ready for 16 Sundays,Ž he said. This year, I think I prepared a lot better and my body has adjusted and been a little more steady throughout.Ž Tebow did not play baseball at UF, so his stint in the Arizona Fall League in 2016 was his first foray into organized baseball since his junior season at Nease High School in St. Augustine in 2005. He spent the 2017 season in Class A and High A, hitting a combined .226 with a .309 on-base percentage and eight home runs.The results have been better this season despite the higher level of competition, but Tebow said he remains focused on improving, rather than thinking about a potential late-season call-up to the majors. I cant worry about any of that,Ž he said of the possibil-ity of being the first player to appear in both the MLB and NFL regular season since Drew Henson (Yankees, 2002 and 2003, and the Cowboys and Lions, 2004 and 2008, respectively).Tebow focused on improving his skills, not on joining MetsOut“ elder and former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow laughs during a news conference in Port St. Lucie.

PAGE 11 | Friday, July 13, 2018 B3By Matt Holzapfel CorrespondentLEESBURG … Walk-off hit? Check. Wild pitch? Got it. Walk-off error? Thats a new one.Tanner Clark beat out a ground ball that was bob-bled by Diamond Dawgs first baseman Jacob Teter, and the Leesburg Lightning (19-6) escaped with a 7-6 win over Winter Park (10-14) Wednes-day night.The Lightning used a walk by Sean Mootrey and a couple of two-out hits by Tanner Clark and Luke Brown to take a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning.The Diamond Dawgs scored one run in both the third and fourth innings, capitalizing on a couple of Lightning errors and a big RBI double by Chandler Robertson to take a 2-1 lead.Leesburg didnt trail for long, however, as they pushed two runs across the plate in the bottom of the fifth. Jake Matulia and Jose Crisostomo started the inning by reaching on back-to-back infield singles. A double-steal turned into disaster for Winter Park when Matulia stole third and third baseman Abraham Sequera couldnt handle the throw from catcher Ryan Watson, allowing Matulia to score and Crisostomo to advance to third. Jay Prathers single to center field brought home Crisostomo, making it 3-2 in favor of the home team.It just gets us going,Ž Lightning head coach Rich Billings said of his teams hustle on those plays. Theres a lot of ways that we can create runs and get on base, and when you have guys in your lineup that can run like that, it helps. Theyre exciting guys to watch, and they play hard and executed right there.ŽWinter Park threatened to blow the game open after loading the bases with no outs in the top of the seventh, but they managed only one run to tie the game 3-3. With three runners aboard, Jacob Teter grounded into a fielders choice, allowing Ryan Watson to score from third. But a great play by reliever Dominic Jeancola on a ground ball up the middle off the bat of Tyler Osik during the next at-bat turned into an inningending double play.After the Dawgs added another run in the eighth and two more in the ninth, the Lightning were trailing 6-3 and down to their final three outs. Showing once again that you should never count out the Lightning, Leesburg put up four runs, winning on a walk-off error by first base-man Teter.Jake Matulia and Jose Crisostomo drew walks to start the comeback, and Walker McCleney took four straight balls to load the bases one out later. A walk and two wild pitches later, Pat Thomas Stadium erupted in cheers as new addition Matthew Wise-man raced home on a hard-hit ball by Tanner Clark. Teter fumbled the grounder and lost it behind him, allowing Wiseman to cross the plate and Clark to reach first safely, sealing the win for Leesburg.We just never give up,Ž said Clark after Leesburgs fourth walk-off win of the season. We keep playing and playing until the last out and make the other team get 27 outs. We know we can do it because weve done it many times, and we have great team chemistry.ŽDespite trailing 6-3 heading into the bottom of the final inning, the Lightning held Winter Park to one run or none in every inning except the top of the ninth. Any time you can keep the other team from putting up crooked numbers, thats huge,Ž coach Billings said.Its still frustrating at the same time, because when were giving up that one run its because were making an error, walking the lead-off hitter. Just things that we need to clean up.ŽDown, not out, Lightning pull o new comeback winWinter Parks ninth-inning error helps Leesburg seal 7-6 victoryCroatias Dejan Lovren celebrates after Croatias Mario Mandzukic scoredthe teams second goal against England at the World Cup in the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, Russia, on Wednesday. [FRANK AUGSTEIN/AP] Us players, now we change something and every-one is proud of us in Croatia.ŽDespite the Balkan nations small population, it is a veritable talent factory in a wide range of sports. Theres the former U.S. Open tennis champion Marin Cilic, a raft of current and ex-NBA players, Olym-pic champions in skiing, discus and the countrys beloved water polo.Most of all, Croatia is an export market for quality footballers, with a squad boasting stars for Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus.Until now, Croatias greatest moment on the football pitch was reaching the World Cup semifinals in 1998, the countrys first tournament after becoming independent. Stars of that team remain household names in Croatia, including the football feder-ation president and ex-Real Madrid striker Davor Suker, who has been with this squad all the way through this World Cup campaign. After the quarterfinal win over Russia, Suker said hed be delighted if Modric replaced him as Croatias greatest player of all time.Instead, he said, Ill be the greatest president!ŽNow that the 2018 squad has gone a step further than the 1998 semifinal-ists, Lovren and Croatia are creating a narrative beyond anything they experienced as children when the stars of the national team were etched into folk lore follow-ing a semifinal loss to France. I was only nine. I remem-ber my mum was screaming, she was crying after the French game,Ž Lovren said. After 20 years people will remember us not any more (than just) 98 „ and this is what I wanted.Ž CROATIAFrom Page B1 I missed camp and (the coaches) kind of just had to plug me in,Ž Gillislee said. Its one of those things where I never really got to show the coaches what I can do coming from a different team. Now Ive got a year under my belt and I was there throughout all the workouts this offseason. I look to return this year.ŽHell have plenty of competition, given the state of the Patriots roster and the revolving-door mentality the team has traditionally employed with its ball-carriers.Since the end of the season, New England signed former Cincinnati Bengals starter Jeremy Hill and spent a first-round draft pick on Georgias Sony Michel, adding to a backfield which already included Gillislee, Rex Burk-head and James White.Gillislee has been in this position, presumably bat-tling for one of the final roster spots, before. In 2015, he was released by the Miami Dolphins before later landing in Buffalo and rejuvenating his career.Knowing hell likely need to beat out Hill for the last spot in the running back room, Gillislee has added muscle, tipping the scale at 216 pounds in OTAs, and worked on his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield.I know my worth,Ž Gillislee said. I know what Im capable of doing. Last year wasnt me.Ž MIKEFrom Page B1The left-handed Kerber, a former No. 1 and two-time major champion, beat 12th-seeded Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 6-3 earlier Thursday.Seeing her back, its great,Ž said Kerber, who has lost six of eight previous matches against Williams. I know that she is always pushing you to the limits.ŽKerber let 2017 French Open champion Ostapenko determine the outcome of nearly every point. By the end, Ostapenko had far more winners, 30-10, and far more unforced errors, 36-7.Williams vs. Kerber will be a rematch of the 2016 final. Williams won that for a second consecutive Wim-bledon title, then sat out the grass-court tournament last year while pregnant, part of a 16-month gap between majors.After giving birth to daughter Olympia last September, Williams was treated for blood clots.I lost count after, like, four surgeries,Ž said Wil-liams, who has been wearing compression leggings this fortnight as a precaution.Her first Grand Slam tour-nament back was the French Open, where she won three matches before withdrawing last month because of an injured chest muscle.All of the time away pushed someone whos spent more than 300 weeks ranked No. 1 down the rankings „ she began Wimbledon at 181st, but was seeded 25th on account of her past success „ and no one could quite be sure how the American would fare over these two weeks. Not even Williams knew.This is not inevitable for me. I had a really tough delivery ... and almost didnt make it, to be honest,Ž Wil-liams said. I remember I couldnt even walk to my mail box, so its definitely not normal for me to be in a Wimbledon final.ŽThe victory over Goerges extended Williams winning streak at Wimbledon to 20 matches, dating to the start of the 2015 edition. Shes also won her past 15 Grand Slam matches since the start of the 2017 Australian Open, which she won while pregnant. That title pushed her past Steffi Grafs record of 22 majors in the half-century professional era; Court won some of her Slams during the amateur era.Williams match against Goerges was even until 2-all, 30-all. Until then, Goerges, the first seeded player Williams faced these two weeks, showed she was capable of trading power from the baseline and big serves with Williams.There were moments when watching Goerges made it easy to wonder how it could be possible she never had been past a majors fourth round until now. Or, more to the point on this afternoon, how such a stinging serve and groundstrokes didnt help her avoid first-round exits each of the past five years at Wimbledon.But she couldnt keep up with Williams, who grabbed 18 of 22 points and five con-secutive games to close the first set and begin the next.She brings her A game in a lot of important moments,Ž Goerges said. We saw that she improved every single match shes playing here.ŽThere was one brief blip to come: Williams got broken for the only time while serv-ing for the match at 5-3. Immediately, though, she broke back at love to end it SERENAFrom Page B1 Serena Williams, of the United States, returns to Julia Goerges at Wimbledon in London, on Thursday. [JONATHAN BRADY/POOL VIA AP] British Open returns to the nasty links of Carnoustie next weekBy Doug FergusonThe Associated PressCarnoustie is known as much for the calamity it causes as the British Open champions it crowns.Any mention of Carnoustie immediately brings back that image of Jean Van de Velde, equal parts tragedy and comedy, standing in Barry Burn on the 18th hole with water up his shins and rising. He made triple bogey to lose a three-shot lead, and then completed as great a collapse as can be found in a major championship by losing in a three-man playoff in 1999.Just dont get the idea Van de Velde owns all the rights to bad endings at Carnoustie.Jose Jurado was the first victim.He had a three-shot lead going into the final round in 1931 and was still two shots clear late in the round until coming undone in the brutal closing stretch, topping one shot on the 17th hole into the burn. He lost out to Tommy Armour.More recently was Padraig Harrington, only it worked out well for him in 2007. Play-ing the 18th with a one-shot lead, the Irishman hit his tee shot into the Barry Burn. He took a penalty drop and then hit his next shot into the winding stream. Harrington managed the best double bogey of his life. It got him into a playoff when Sergio Garcia made bogey from the bunker, and Harrington went on to win his first major.Of the six previous Opens on these menacing links, Ben Hogan is the only winner to hold a 54-hole lead.For most everyone else, Carnoustie always seem to dish out its share of carnage. Rod Pampling once opened with a 71 and had the lead. He followed with an 86 and missed the cut. Phil Mickelson still hasnt seen a weekend at Carnoustie. Garcia made his major debut as a professional at Carnoustie. He shot 89.Thats a brutal course,Ž Ber-nhard Langer said. He speaks from experience in 1999, when Langer had his third-highest score of the 23 Opens he com-pleted. He shot 297, and he tied for 18th that week.The first time Tiger Woods went an entire round without a birdie in a major was in 1999 at Carnoustie.I think I made one birdie on the weekend and I finished three or four back of the play-off,Ž Woods said. That was ridiculous how hard it was.ŽOne month after Shinnecock Hills was punishing as ever in the U.S. Open, golfs oldest championship doesnt figure to be much of a reprieve. Scotland has been going through a warm, dry patch of weather, which fig-ures to make it firm and bouncy.Mickelson, who played Carnoustie a week before the Open, said it was unlikely he would even carry a driver.Im either going to carry a driver or that hot 3-wood, but theres only two or three holes „ theres actually only two holes I plan on using it, both par 5s. I have a low 1-iron that Ive been putting in the bag and... its very low. Gets on the ground quick. Ill hit that on probably the last ten holes, almost every hole.ŽBritish Open returns to the nasty links of Carnoustie next week

PAGE 17 | Friday, July 13, 2018 C1 DRIVETom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 Powered by Q: I just bought new tires for my truck. The tire place recommended an alignment because the front tires were wearing more on the inside of the tread. They then called and said they can't align it because I need a "front end overhaul" to the tune of around $900! The truck has 141,000 miles and seems to drive, stop and turn great. I asked what is the worst thing that could happen if I didn't fix it, and they said my new tires will wear out too soon and I could lose control if I hit the wrong kind of bumps. What's your opinion? What is done in a "front end overhaul"? I wasn't planning to keep it more than another year or so. „ Jim L. A: It wouldn't hurt to get a second opinion in a situation like this. The symptoms of worn out suspension or steering parts may be irregular and rapid tire wear, pulling to one side, the truck following grooves in the pavement, noises, and/or clunking felt in the steering wheel. There's a performance aspect to this, with moderately worn parts, and also a safety consideration, should severe looseness lead to component separation. I'm not sure about the "losing control" part. A "front-end overhaul" could mean different things; I'd interpret it as the replacement of all ball joints, tie rod ends, suspension bushings and perhaps front struts or shocks. It's not unreasonable to find a worn ball joint or tie rod end at 141K miles, or perhaps moderate looseness in many of the parts. It's a grey area as to how much looseness should be tolerated and/or corrected. It's best to renew worn suspension and steering parts before performing a wheel alignment, as the procedure is done while the vehicle is at rest, and road forces act on the loose parts, messing up alignment during actual driving conditions. Suspension and steering parts are somewhat like your hips, knees and ankles. While it might not be too difficult to align your feet while sitting or standing still, imagine how they might flop around as you ran across varying terrain with loose joints from the hips down. When the tires/wheels are allowed to wander from the desired plane, tire tread is scrubbed away and the vehicle begins to track sloppily. Testing suspension and steering parts is fairly easy with the vehicle safely elevated. The various joints and bushings can be flexed or compressed to check for excessive looseness. Some parts, such as ball joints, may have a visible wear indicator UNDER THE HOODSeek second opinion on front end overhaul Brad BergholdtBy Robert DufferTribune News ServiceSubaru is rising. The small Japanese brand has had 78 months of consecutive growth. It is one of the industry leaders in conquest sales „ taking customers from other brands „ and has the second-highest brand loyalty rate, behind Toyota, accord-ing to It has capitalized on the crossover craze and eaten away at the market share of the big boys without having a big boy in its lineup. Until now.With the 2019 Ascent, Subaru finally has a proper three-row crossover with all-wheel drive safety, offroad capability and full family-hauler functionality.Let's be honest: a three-row crossover is as exciting as your second-grader's artwork. But the Ascent fills a huge void in Subaru's relatively small lineup and should keep loy-alists in the family as they get a family.Subaru either learned from its mistakes in the wishywashy Tribeca (2005-2014) or learned from being the last automaker to offer a competi-tive three-row crossover.The Ascent drives much smaller than the other late-comer, the Volkswagen Atlas, and feels more like the sport-ing Mazda CX-9 behind the wheel. It's a smooth adjustment for consumers going from a smaller crossover or even a car. The all-new turbo-charged boxer four-cylinder engine makes 260 horse-power and 277 pound-feet of torque, good enough to tow 5,000 pounds, according to Subaru. That output beats the 3.6-liter flat-6 engine in other Subies, so expect it to be the engine of the future.Because the pistons are horizontally opposed, the boxer engine sits lower in the bay and has less vibration than inline or V-6 setups. It makes for a smoother, more nimble ride than other three-row crossovers. The stepped gear ratios in the continuously variable transmission approx-imate the shift points you'd come to expect in an automatic transmission without the heavy droning and sense of anticipation that comes with other CVTs.In short, the driver won't pay much attention to the inner workings of the powertrain. It's responsive for everyday needs and utilizes Subaru's effortless all-wheel-drive system with X-Mode, which controls wheel spin at lower speeds.It sits larger than it rides, unlike the comparatively New crossover lls a voidSubaru climbs into 3-row class with 2019 AscentThe 2019 Subaru Ascent is a three-row crossover powered by a 260-horsepower turbocharged boxer four-cylinder engine with a cont inuously variable transmission and 19 cupholders. [ROBERT DUFFER/CHICAGO TRIBUNE/TNS] Vehicle type: 3-row midsize SUV Base price: $31,995 As tested: $44,695 in Touring trim (excluding $975 destination) Mpg: 20 city, 26 highway (22 combined) Engine: 260-horsepower 2.4-liter turbo boxer four-cylinder Transmission: Continuously variable transmission in all-wheel drive 2019 Subaru Ascent Touring By Larry PrintzTribune News ServiceST. HELENA, Calif. „ If you're old enough to remem-ber when punk rock first exploded on the music scene in the 1970s, you no doubt remember how radical it sounded. Yet it wasn't. It's simplicity, rawness and rude-ness was little more than an acknowledgement of rock's roots, which had become buried under the aural sludge of corporate rock. It's an anal-ogy that applies to Porsche. The rear-engine 911, now available in a new "stripped" 911T trim, has grown fat and happy after seven decades on the market. Yes, it's iconic, like Paul McCartney or Brian Wilson, but you know what to expect.In contrast, the mid-engine 718 Boxster convertible and Cayman coupe are Porsche's punk rockers. They are the distilled essence of Porsche, its quintessence rendered in metal and muscle, particu-larly in its new GTS trim.Visually, the GTS sports a Sport Design black front fascia with tinted front and rear lights, a black lower rear fascia, centrally mounted black exhaust tips and matte black 20-inch wheels.But it's the performance upgrades that matter more: torque vectoring, a mechan-ical rear-differential lock, the Sport Chrono Package, and Porsche Active Suspension Management. The later reduces ride height by 0.39 inches compared to the standard suspension. Yes, you can get these on S models, but it will cost you more. And the GTS' 2.5 liter flat-four cylin-der engine's has an additional 15 horsepower compared to the 718 S models and up to 35 horsepower more than the previous naturally aspirated Boxster and Cayman GTS.That makes the GTS good for 365 horsepower through its six-speed manual transmission, although a seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) dual-clutch transmission is optional. And before you scoff at the notion of paying an additional $3,730 for the PDK, understand that it does have its advantages. Specifically, it has 317 pound-feet of torque versus the manual's 309, and an extra mile per gallon in fuel economy ratings. Most important, the PDK is faster, with a 0-60 mph time of 3.9 seconds. Order the manual and that same run takes 4.4 seconds. Track hounds take note.What you quickly dis-cover, just as in other Boxster Cayman models, is that the 718 GTS models make the per-fect dance partner „ but even more so. With two seats, two trunks (one front, one rear), Alcantara trim, and an engine placed over your shoulder, the 718 Boxster/Cayman GTS is not just ideally balanced, it's one sweet sports car.Everything on this car is ideal for tearing up your favorite twisties. The tires grip with authority, the steering is quick and precise, body lean is nonexistent. A knob on the steering wheel adjusts the vehicle's driving mode from Normal to Sport, Sport Plus, and Individual. As you'd expect, the ride is very firm, and even the Normal mode delivers a firm ride over rough road surfaces. But what makes the 718 GTS so compelling is not just its clear communication as to what's going on, but also its ability to make you a better driver not only through its many electronic systems, but also through the PDK, which always seems to anticipate what you're about to do. Clearly, clairvoyance has a name, and it's PDK. Best of all, it allows the driver to con-centrate on driving technique, something that rarely hap-pens with a manual … just ask Boxster, Cayman are possibly the best sports cars Base prices: $79,800-$81,900 Engine: Turbocharged 2.5liter ” at four-cylinder Horsepower: 365 Torque: 309 pound-feet (manual); 317 pound-feet (PDK) EPA fuel economy (city/ highway): 19/25 (manual); 20/26 (PDK) Fuel type: Premium Wheelbase: 97.4 inches Length: 172.9 inches Combined cargo capacity: 9.7 cubic feet (Boxster); 15 cubic feet (Cayman) Curb weight: 3,032-3,098 pounds Top speed: 180 mphAt a glance Porsche premiered the new 718 Cayman GTS at the Los Angeles Auto Show in 2017.

Any general repair shop should be capable of inspecting and replacing worn suspension components. You may find their opinion will differ from that of the tire shop folks, and you can weigh the merits of replacing perhaps a couple of worn parts or all of them. Let's say you have moderate looseness in many parts (a performance but not a safety concern). This may cut the lifespan of a $700 set of tires by ‡, vs. the large cost to restore a truck you'll not be keeping much longer to preferred condition.

OPINIONFrom Page C1cramped CX-9. It's not as roomy as the Atlas or Honda Pilot in the third row, though. Subaru says three child seats could fit, but your knees ride high back there. Like most vehicles in this class, that row is best for grade-schoolers.Also like the CX-9, Atlas and Ford Explorer, the top of the line Touring trim puts a price on premium. Java brown leather with heated everything contrasts against the black dash with silver accents. A wood-grain console gives it that upscale touch, while the center stack has big climate and audio knobs for the gloved among us in the Snow Belt.There are essentially three vehicle info display areas, with some redundancy. The 8-inch touch screen is mainly for navi-gation and for the passenger to have a say in audio controls or to play with apps. Above the center stack embedded in the dash is Subaru's multifunction display, which shows a more detailed look at what systems are in use, such as torque distribution or the engaged elements of Eye Sight „ Subaru's excellent suite of advanced driver assistance systems. After getting over my skepticism at more screens, I came to appreciate seeing in one place what lane-keep assist was doing with blind-spot alert and adaptive cruise control instead of glancing at icons in the gauge cluster. The vehicle info dis-play in the gauge cluster shows speedometer, fuel economy, trip meters and more. The only confusing part is remembering where the buttons are to play with each one.Also nice to play with are the 19 cup holders; parents won't be surprised by how quickly they fill with non-cup kid stuff. Touring has six USB ports instead of four, including two in the third row. The second row comes with captain's chairs with knob-ish handles on top to help third-row passengers climb in or out. Subtle, clever, Subaru. At this price point it would have been nice to have headrests that collapse when pulling the strap to collapse the third row.Ascent has a relatively low load floor despite having 8.7 inches of ground clearance for modest but capable off-roading. The doors open wide for easy access and the cargo area is wide on top and bottom to load two hockey bags vertically and still fit seven passengers. And those roof rails can support a roof tent, which evidently is a thing.It's all very easy, which should be welcome relief to anyone hauling kids.In a market overrun with three-row crossovers, Subaru needed the Ascent more than the market needed it. But Ascent should keep Subaru trending upward. SUBARUFrom Page C1race car legend Hurley Haywood.Even if you don't you don't, you'll find the 718 Boxster GTS or the 718 Cayman GTS to be your ultimate weekend warrior, a delightful plaything that strikes the perfect chord in your automotive hit parade.For the money, they are among the finest sports cars you can buy.

DEAR ABBY: I'm 20 years old and have a job in retail. I have been working here for a few years and am in a higher position than most associates. I'm in a relationship with my high school sweetheart, whom I truly love, but I am also crazy about my boss. She's beautiful, funny, and to be honest, I jumped at my promotion so I could get closer to her. I feel terrible because, while I love my girlfriend (she's amazing), if I were given the chance to be with my boss, I'd have a hard time saying no. Thankfully, my boss is in a long-term marriage, so I know in my head I have no chance, but it hurts to go on every day thinking about her. I'd hate myself if I never told her how I feel about her. What should I do? -REALLY CONFUSED IN RETAIL DEAR REALLY CONFUSED: Because you are excelling in this retail job, consider asking your beautiful, funny, married boss to write a positive letter of recommendation for you so you can nd another job in retail -one that won't make you ache every time you clock in. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been asked to be in his sister's wedding. We said yes, mostly out of obligation. There will be three married couples in the procession. I recently learned that my sisterin-law plans to have the couples split up and walk with others. I think it's extremely weird and rude, so much so that we want to back out. Neither of us cares to be in a memory book with us posing with other people. It's not that either of us is jealous; we have been married for 24 years. What do you think? -FEELING OBLIGATED IN THE EAST DEAR FEELING OBLIGATED: I think that before you take offense and back out, you should ask your sister-in-law why she wants to do this. It could be something as simple as variations in the height of the participants and not weird or rude. Between you and me, unless you and your husband feel so strongly about this that you are willing to create a rift in the family, you should go along with his sister's fantasy of her perfect day. DEAR ABBY: I can't do anything for my 70-something-year-old mom without her thanking me so much it makes me uncomfortable. A recent example: She moved to a new apartment, and I bought her some gift certicates as a housewarming gift. She thanked me profusely via email when she received them. She thanked me again over the phone when I next spoke with her. She's thanked me at least half a dozen more times -each time she uses one of them. When my sister and I paid for a trip for her, she bought us expensive gifts as thank-yous. The gifts cost far more than she could afford (and unfortunately, in my case, was something I'd never use), which kind of negated the idea of us paying for the trip. I know Mom means well. Should I say or do anything, or just let it be? -THANKS-FULL SON IN SEATTLE DEAR SON: If you say something, you risk embarrassing your mother or, worse, hurting her feelings. I vote for just letting it be. 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.

Your creativity becomes your signature, no matter what comes down the path. Your magnetism soars. If you are single, you will attract many potential suitors. Your biggest issue will be a tendency to be too me-oriented. If you are attached, the two of you might volley for center stage. Know that you both can share the spotlight if you work as a team. LEO urges you to be more self-centered.ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) You breeze into the afternoon ready for the weekend and feeling unusually creative. Others are drawn to you. Expect the unexpected later in the day. Run with whatever happens. Be sure of yourself, and know that you can handle whatever heads your way. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) You might feel pressured by a loved one and/ or a domestic situation. As a result, you could act out and say or do something shocking. Understand what this action or statement means. You need to honor your boundaries more often. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Handle your nances and other serious matters in the morning, when you naturally are more attentive. As the afternoon approaches, you might be overwhelmed by calls and emails. Make it your pleasure to respond accordingly. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) You could be in the right mindset to begin the weekend -that is, until a nancial matter becomes a higher priority. You might have to change your plans. A friend or loved one might be disappointed or thrilled, depending on what you are trying to do. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) You might feel off in the morning.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22DEC. 21) You could be in the mood to take off on an adventure of sorts. If you can take off early, even better. A change of scenery can only benet you. A loved one lets you know how important you are to him or her. Flow with the moment. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22JAN. 19) Defer to a partner who has strong ideas that he or she would like you to go along with. Try to let go of your bias and listen carefully. A child suddenly might decide to act up. Get into the moment without making anything heavier than need be. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) You will let others run with the ball. You have a lot of loved ones who have a better sense of what works than you do. You could be surprised by what occurs.

Others drop some last-minute work on you. You know you are going to have to work late or during the weekend. Free yourself up to do something that you nd relaxing. | Friday, July 13, 2018 C5 TODAY IS FRIDAY, JULY 13, the 194th day of 2018. There are 171 days left in the year. TODAY'S HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY: On July 13, 1960, John F. Kennedy won the Democratic presidential nomination on the rst ballot at his party's convention in Los Angeles, outdrawing rivals including Lyndon B. Johnson, Stuart Symington and Adlai Stevenson. ON THIS DATE: In 1923, a sign consisting of 50-foot-tall letters spelling out "HOLLYWOODLAND" was dedicated in the Hollywood Hills to promote a subdivision (the last four letters were removed in 1949). In 1939, Frank Sinatra made his rst commercial recording, "From the Bottom of My Heart" and "Melancholy Mood," with Harry James and his Orchestra for the Brunswick label. In 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson nominated Thurgood Marshall to be U.S. Solicitor General; Marshall became the rst black jurist appointed to the post. (Two years later, Johnson nominated Marshall to the U.S. Supreme Court.) In 1977, a blackout hit New York City in the mid-evening as lightning strikes on electrical equipment caused power to fail; widespread looting broke out. (The electricity was restored about 25 hours later.)
