Trump speaks fondly of Putin and a desire for better relations with Moscow, but the rest of his executive branch remains highly critical and deeply suspicious of the Rus-sian president and the Kremlins intentions.The stark contrast in approaches has been thrown into sharp relief as Trump and Putin prepare for their summit in Finland on Monday, amid unremitting criticism of Russia from Trumps State Department, Justice Depart-ment, Treasury Department and Defense Department.That might be explained as a good cop-bad cop strategy with Russia. But the mixed messag-ing has left Americas friends and allies confused, particu-larly after a contentious NATO summit where Trump questioned the value of the alliance that Putin has long denounced and sought to weaken.Just three days before the Helsinki summit, the Justice Department announced the indictment of 12 Russian intelli-gence officers in special counsel Robert Mullers investigation into Moscows meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

LOTTERY DATELINESNEW ORLEANSJaguar escapes habitat at Audubon Zoo, kills 6 animalsA jaguar escaped from its hab-itat at the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans and killed six animals.The male jaguar escaped around 7:20 a.m. Saturday and was captured and returned to its night house after being sedated by a vet team nearly an hour later, after it had mauled four alpacas, one emu and one fox. No people were hurt. News outlets report the zoo was closed Saturday and would reopen Sunday. It was not immediately clear how the animal escaped. An investigation is underway.

FDA OKs drug to treat smallpox, in case of terror attackU.S. regulators Friday approved the first treatment for smallpox „ a deadly disease that was wiped out four decades ago „ in case the virus is used in a terror attack.Smallpox, which is highly contagious, was eradicated worldwide by 1980 after a huge vaccination campaign.But people born since then havent been vaccinated, and small samples of the smallpox virus were saved for research purposes, leaving the possibil-ity it could be used as a biological weapon.Maker SIGA Technologies of New York has already delivered 2 million treatments that will be stockpiled by the government, which partially paid for the development of the drug, called TPOXX.DALLAS8 MS-13 gang members in US illegally indicted in Texas Federal authorities have indicted eight MS-13 gang members in the U.S. illegally who used machetes and other weapons to carry out a string of violent attacks against rival gang members in North Texas last year. U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox said Friday that the street gang is one of the largest in the U.S. and described their tactics as cold, calculating and ruthless. A major rule of the gang is that members must attack and kill rivals, she said. Their trademark is vio-lence,Ž Cox said at a Friday news conference in Dallas. They are required to commit acts of vio-lence in order to be involved with the gang and to participate as gang members.Ž The Associated PressIN BRIEFLOS ANGELESEmergency responders work at the scene of an overturned bus Saturday in Pico-Union, just south of downtown Los Angeles.

[AMR NABIL/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]Administration working to harden system on multiple fronts to curb immigrationBy Colleen Long and Amy TaxinThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ The separation of families at the U.S.-Mexico border caught the attention of the world and prompted mass outrage, but it only tells a small part of the story surrounding the Trump administrations immigration policy.In reality, the government is working to harden the system on multiple fronts to curb immigration, carving a path around various court rulings to do so. The administration is seeking to lock up families indefinitely, expand deten-tion space and tighten asylum rules and apply more scrutiny to green card applications.Many of the initiatives received little attention during the chaos over separated families, but they show how determined President Donald Trump is to stop immigrants from coming „ both legally and illegally „ even in cases where the administration has been stymied by the courts.Other administrations may have faced similar problems with illegal immigration and tried similar solutions, but all have been unable to stem the flow of migrants streaming through southern border. No other president, however, has campaigned so vociferously on the topic. The United States will not be a migrant camp and it will not be a refugee holding facil-ity,Ž President Donald Trump declared days before putting an end to the separation of parents from their children. Not on my watch.ŽThis weeks headlines were dominated by stories of reunions of immigrant parents and their young children that the Trump administration had to carry out under a court order. The White House said it worked tirelesslyŽ to com-plete the reunifications and make sure the children were put back into safe homes.In the same week, however, the administration made other moves to clamp down on immigrant families, asylum seekers and those seeking green cards.The administrations attempts to deter Central American families and children from making the trip north are designed to send the message to immigrants „ and Trumps supporters in an election year „ that reaching the United States is going to get harder, and so will getting papers to stay in the country legally.All of these things, I think, are part of a bigger ultimate aim, which is to significantly reduce immigration of all kinds to the United States over the longer term, and in the process, the real desire is to change the character of the country,Ž said Doris Meiss-ner, a former commissioner of the Immigration and Natural-ization Service in the Clinton administration. Before departing the White House this week for his Euro-pean trip, Trump offered his own solution for the government missing a courtmandated deadline to reunite some families: Dont come to our country illegally.ŽIn Europe, the president hasnt shied away from offering his views on the flow of immigration across the pond. Trump pressed ahead with his complaints that European immigration policies are changing the fabric of EuropeŽ and destroying European culture. He reiter-ated a position he articulated in a British tabloid where he said: I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad.ŽThe Trump administration announced plans in April to prosecute illegal border cross-ers with the crime of improper entry, and in doing so, jailed some parents caught on the border and placed their chil-dren in government custody. The U.S. government was sued and the public was out-raged, prompting Trump to halt the separations.The chaos over the separations has put the administration in the difficult position of having to release families with ankle-monitoring bracelets into the public „ a practice Trump has decried „ while at the same time attempting a series of legal maneuvers to argue for tougher enforcement capabilities.Thats because two court cases in California restrict what the government can do in carrying out hardline immi-gration policies. One requires the government to release immigrant children generally after 20 days in detention. The other has banned the separa-tion of families and placed the government under tight deadlines to reunite parents and children.In an attempt to comply with both rulings, the White House wants to present families with a choice: Stay together in detention or release the child to a govern-ment program for immigrant youth for potential place-ment with a relative while the parent remains locked up.Separations part of Trumps bigger planIn this June 13 photo, Nicole Hernandez holds her mothers leg as they wait with other families to request political asylum in the United States, across the border in Tijuana, Mexico.

That means the mayor's role is now largely ceremonial.A president to preside over meetings and a vice president to serve as a backup are appointed by the council annually.Blankenship said the city will ask voters to allow the council to elect five mem-bers for a term of four years each. The council would then appoint one of their number as the mayor and one as vice mayor on an annual basis to lead meetings. All five mem-bers of the board would have a vote.Eustis, one of Umatillas neighboring cities, follows the same procedure, Blan-kenship said.I think the days of having Umatilla considers empowering mayorProposed change to city charter would require voter approval Staff ReportLADY LAKE „ The Villages Rehab & Nursing Center has earned a silver-level achievement in quality award from the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living.The award program recognizes providers across the nation that have demonstrated dedication to improving quality of care for residents and patients in long-term and post-acute care.Villages Rehab is committed to implementing processes that better the lives of those we serve,Ž said Deborah Brazill, owner and administrator of The Villages Rehab & Nursing Center.Based on the core values of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program, the National Quality Award Program challenges member providers to achieve perfor-mance excellence through three levels „ bronze, silver, and gold.

Here's a look at some of the impor-tant, odd and weird news from the past seven days. Jeep may “ nd home in parkA World War II vintage Jeep may soon be parked among the monuments of Veterans Memorial Park.The city of Leesburg Recreation Advisory Board gave its blessing Tuesday to adding the Jeep to a collec-tion of military artifacts and memorials that includes a Vietnam-era Huey helicopter and monuments to World War II veterans and Korean War veterans.City Commissioners had asked Van Beck for a master plan, and the ambi-tious plan, which called for a Humvee, an attack plane, a tank and a replica submarine, raised some eyebrows.Van Beck conceded that the idea of getting a tank and an A-10 Wart Hog seem to be off the table because the military is still using them. Upkeep was another concern, and it is one reason commissioners decided to consult with the advisory board.The Advisory Boards recommendation goes back to the City Commission for final approval.

[SUBMITTED] By John KennedyGatehouse MediaTALLAHASSEE „ Threeterm Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson said Friday that he collected almost $4.4 million over the past three months for his nationally watched contest with Republican Rick Scott, whose own first quarter total doubled that amount.Nelson raised the most he has ever in a three-quarter span since taking office in 2001, and it left him with $13.7 mil-lion cash-on-hand for what is expected to be a free-swinging November battle with Scott.Nelson drew contributions from more than 18,000 people between April and the end of June, the campaign said.Across Florida, people are energized, knocking on doors, making phone calls and contributing to support this campaign because they know Bill Nelson has and always will put Florida first,Ž said cam-paign manager Marley Wilkes.Scott this week reported raising more than $10.7 mil-lion since opening his campaign April 9. He said he has more than 11,000 donors, with most contributing less than $500 each.Full reports for the candidates have not yet been made public by the Federal Election Commission.Scott, though, has spent more than $10 million on tele-vision advertising, while the Nelson campaign said it does not plan on airing TV spots until after Floridas Aug. 28 primary. Scott faces longshot Repub-lican rival Rocky De La Fuente in the contest for the Republi-can nomination, while Nelson is unopposed.Polls show that despite Scotts early TV spending, the race remains a toss-up.

Hamlin & Hilbish Funeral Directors, 326 E. Orange Avenue, Eustis. 352-357-4193 Dennis Ray Miller a ceremonial mayor are long gone,Ž Blankenship added. It was popular at one time to have a person representing the council to attend events, shake hands or sign papers, but I believe we are the only city left, at least in Lake County, that still has the type of mayor who sits on the dais and has an opin-ion but who cannot vote on the business of the city.ŽBlankenship said there is also a financial benefit to the change, since voters would only be electing five people instead of six to the council. The savings, he said, would total $400 per month, or $4,800 annually.Thats not the main reason for doing this, but there is a savings to tax-payers should the change to the charter be made,Ž he added.Mary Johnson, the citys elected mayor, said she supports a char-ter change. The savings would benefit residents, but most of all, it makes sense to give the mayors voting power, since they are involved in city busi-ness in every other way, she said.Johnson said rotating the mayor and vice mayor annually is also a good thing, because it changes things up.ŽWith the way it is now, my position is very limited. I knew that going in, but I didnt realize how frustrating it would be at times being in on all the discussions, wanting to do whats best for the citizens and wanting to vote, but not being able to,Ž Johnson said.If the council votes to add the referendum to the November ballot and if voters pass it, Johnson would no longer serve as mayor. The new charter would nullify her term, since it is based on the old charter. But if the charter change is voted down, Johnson can serve out her term, or two more years as of Dec. 31.Im good either way. If there is no change to the charter, I am fully committed for the rest of my term,Ž she said. UMATILLAFrom Page A3 was born and raised in Clermont.

A few seconds later, the door was pushed open and she could see a man standing in the doorway holding a large knife. Her husband woke up and chased the man out of the room and the intruder fell down the stairs.The victims brother-in-law, who was on the phone in the living room when he heard the scream, helped detain Hernandez until police arrived.Hernandez told police he traveled to Mexico from Guatemala to enter the U.S. illegally and pursue a better life.ŽHe said he met some men in Mexico who offered to smuggle him into the U.S. for 10,000 Mexican pesos.

AWARDFrom Page A3 By John RogersThe Associated PressLOS ANGELES „ Nancy Sinatra Sr., the childhood sweetheart of Frank Sinatra who became the first of his four wives and the mother of his three children, has died. She was 101.Her daughter, Nancy Sinatra Jr., tweeted that her mother died Friday and a posting on her web page said she died at 6:02 p.m. but didnt indicate where she died.She was a blessing and the light of my life,Ž her daughter said.Attempts to reach representatives for Sina-tra Jr. late Friday were unsuccessful. Nancy and Frank Sina-tra had been dating as teenagers and married at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic church in Jersey City, New Jersey, on Feb. 4, 1939, just as Franks singing career was about to take off. Three years before marrying the former Nancy Barbato, he had landed a 15-minute radio show on local sta-tion WAAT.During the marriages early years, the Sinatras lived in a modest apart-ment in Jersey City, where their two eldest children were born. For a time she was employed as a secretary while her hus-band worked as a singing waiter.After Sinatra became a pop-music sensation in the 1940s, the couple moved to Los Angeles, where the singer would also become a movie star, raconteur, man about town and notorious womanizer.Nancy Sinatra left Frank after his affair with actress Ava Gardner became public knowledge. Weeks after the pairs divorce became final in 1951, Sinatras ex-husband married Gardner, while Sinatra went on to raise the couples three children: Nancy, Frank Jr. and Tina.Nancy Sinatra Sr., rst wife of Frank Sinatra, dies at 101Nancy Sinatra Sr. takes the witness stand on Sept. 28, 1950 in Superior Court in Santa Monica, Calif., where she was granted a decree of separate maintenance from singer Frank Sinatra. [HAROLD FILAN/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, FILE] By Geoff MulvihillThe Associated PressPHILADELPHIA „ The U.S. homeland security secretary said on Saturday there are no signs that Russia is targeting this years mid-term elections with the same scale or scopeŽ it targeted the 2016 presi-dential election. Department of Home-land Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen spoke at a convention of state sec-retaries of state, an event thats usually a low-key affair highlighting voter registration, balloting devices and election security issues that dont get much public attention. But coming amid fresh allegations into Russias attempts to sway the 2016 election, the sessions on election security have a higher level of urgency and interest.Nielsen said her agency will help state and local election officials prepare their systems for cyber-attacks from Russia or elsewhere. She said U.S. intelligence officials are seeing persistent Russian efforts using social media, sympathetic spokespeople and other fronts to sow discord and divisiveness amongst the American people, though not necessarily focused on specific politicians or political campaigns.ŽThe conference of top state election officials she addressed was sand-wiched between Fridays indictments of 12 Rus-sian military intelligence officers alleged to have hacked into Democratic party and campaign accounts and Mondays long-awaited meeting between President Donald Trump and Rus-sian President Vladimir Putin.Trump has never con-demned Russia over meddling in the 2016 election despite the findings of all top U.S. intelligence agencies, and the Kremlin has insisted it didnt meddle in the U.S. election. In the past, Trump has reiterated Putins deni-als, but this week he said he would bring up the issue when they meet on Monday in Finland.All I can do is say, Did you?Ž Trump said days ago at a news conference in Brussels. And, Dont do it again. But he may deny it.ŽSome of the state offi-cials who run elections say its important for Trump, a Republican, to take a tougher stance to avoid having the publics confidence in fair elec-tions undermined.I believe as commander in chief he has an obligation to address it and, frankly, put Putin and any other foreign nation that seeks to undermine our democracy on notice that the actions will not be tolerated,Ž California Secretary of State Alex Padilla, a Democrat, said in an interview this week.Some of his peers declined to go that far.I dont go around tell-ing the president what to do,Ž said Jay Ashcroft, the Republican secretary of state in Missouri.Russia using social media to divide Americans

DailyCommercial.com | Sunday, July 15, 2018 A5By Raphael Satter and Desmond ButlerThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ At the beginning of 2017, one of Julian Assanges biggest media boosters traveled to the WikiLeaks founders refuge inside the Ecuador-ean Embassy in London and asked him where he got the leaks that shook up the U.S. presidential election only months earlier.Fox News host Sean Hannity pointed straight to the purloined emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clintons campaign chairman.Can you say to the American people, unequiv-ocally, that you did not get this information about the DNC, John Podestas emails, can you tell the American people 1,000 percent you did not get it from Russia or anybody associated with Russia?ŽYes,Ž Assange said. We can say „ we have said repeatedly „ over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party.ŽThe Justice Departments indictment Friday of 12 Russian military intelligence officers under-mines those denials. And if the criminal charges are proved, it would show that WikiLeaks (referred to as Organization 1Ž in the indictment) received the material from Guccifer 2.0, a persona directly controlled by Russias Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff, also known as GRU, and even gave the Russian hackers advice on how to dissemi-nate it.Whether Assange knew that those behind Guccifer 2.0 were Russian agents is not addressed in the indict-ment. But it seems unlikely that Assange, a former hacker who once boasted of having compromised U.S. military networks him-self, could have missed the extensive coverage blaming the Kremlin for the DNC hack.Assange told Hannity he exercised exclusive control over WikiLeaks releases.There is one person in the world, and I think its actually only one, who knows exactly whats going on with our publications and thats me,Ž Assange said.On June 22, 2016, by which point the online publication Motherboard had already debunked Guccifer 2.0s claim to be a lone Romanian hacker, WikiLeaks sent a typo-rid-den message to the persona, saying that releasing the material through WikiLeaks would have a much higher impact than what you are doing,Ž the indictment states.If you have anything hillary related we want it in the next (two) days pref(er)able because the DNC is approaching and she will solidify bernie supporters behind her after,Ž says a message from July 6, 2016, referring to the upcoming Democratic National Con-vention and Clintons chief party rival, Bernie Sanders.The exchange appears to point to a desire to under-cut Clinton by playing up divisions within the Demo-cratic camp.we think trump has only a 25% chance of win-ning against hillary ... so conflict between bernie and hillary is interesting,Ž the message says.At that time in the campaign, there were sim-mering tensions between the supporters of Clinton and Sanders that would come to a head during the convention because of the hacked emails.WikiLeaks and a lawyer for Assange, Melinda Taylor, did not return mes-sages seeking comment on the indictment or the exchanges with Guccifer 2.0.Assanges eagerness to get his hands on the alleged material from GRU reflected in the indictment „ and prevent anyone else from beating WikiLeaks to the punch „ is also revealed in leaked messages to journalist Emma Best. She, like several other reporters, also was in com-munication with Guccifer 2.0.In copies of Twitter messages obtained by The Associated Press and first reported by BuzzFeed, WikiLeaks demands that Best butt out.Please leave their convers(a)tion with them and us,Ž WikiLeaks said on August 13, 2016, arguing that the impact of material would be very substantially reducedŽ if Best handled the leak.Best told BuzzFeed she dropped the matter. About an hour after the conversa-tion ended, Guccifer 2.0 announced on Twitter that it was sending a major troveŽ of data and emails to WikiLeaks.Charges undermine Assange denials about hacked email origins

A6 Sunday, July 15, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comBy Eric TalmadgeThe Associated PressPYONGYANG, North Korea „ Doctor O Yong Il swings open a glass door with a bright orange biohaz-ard sign and gestures to the machine he hoped would revolutionize his lifes work. Its called the GeneXpert and its about the size of a household microwave oven. As chief of North Koreas National Tuberculosis Ref-erence Laboratory, Dr. O saw it as a godsend.Tuberculosis is North Koreas biggest public health problem. With this American-made machine, his lab would be able to complete a TB test in just two hours, instead of two months.It took years, but Dr. O got the machines, only to dis-cover that GeneXpert needs cartridges he cant replace. Its not entirely clear what about the cartridges would violate international sanctions. For a long time, the producer refused to disclose what agents were inside because that was patented information. But it doesnt really matter. No one, it seems, is willing to help him procure them from abroad and run the risk of angering Washington.Despite a budding mood of detente on the Korean Peninsula since the summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un last month in Singapore, ongoing sanctions championed by the U.S. and Trumps maximum pressureŽ policy continue to generate an atmosphere of hesitation and the fear of even unintentional violations. And that is keeping lifesaving medicines and supplies from thousands of North Korean tuberculosis patients.Dr. Os laboratory, built with help from Stanford University and Christian Friends of Korea aid group, has essentially been running on empty since April.But the idle GeneXperts may soon be the least of his troubles.Tuberculosis kills more than 1.6 million people a year. When left untreated it will be fatal in half of those it infects. Its the worlds most deadly infectious disease and is so contagious that each case can be expected to lead to 10 to 20 more.In developed countries, it has largely been brought under control. Theres a vaccine that prevents it and a cocktail of drugs that can be used to treat, and often cure, it in a matter of months. But its a major scourge in less affluent places, including North Korea and sub-Saharan Africa.To help North Korea control its tuberculosis problem, a Geneva-based international aid organiza-tion called the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria has dispersed more than $100 million in grants since 2010. Last year it supported the treatment of about 190,000 North Korean TB patients.But, two weeks ago, Global Fund ended all of its North Korea-related grants, saying it could no longer accept the Norths unique operating conditions.Ž Spokesman Seth Faison said the fund informed Pyongyang in February so it would have time to look for alternative funding sources. He said Global Fund is providing buffer stocks of medicines and health products to help support the treatment of tuberculosis patients through June next year.Faison said Global Fund welcomes the positive diplomatic efforts underwayŽ between Pyongyang and its neighbors. But the funds position stands.The decision shocked the doctors at the Pyong-yang tuberculosis lab, who praised Global Fund for the work it had done but accused it of bowing to political pressure from the United States and Trumps vow to keep the pressure on and not ease sanctions until the North makes major steps toward denuclearization. The United States government, which has pledged $1.4 billion this year, is one of Global Funds biggest donors.The funds retreat sparked outrage outside of North Korea as well. In an open letter published in the medical journal Lancet, Harvard physician Kee Park, director of North Korea programs for the Korean American Association, warned the funds withdrawal could create a humanitarian and public health crisisŽ and called the move a cataclysmic betrayal of the people of the DPRK.ŽWhatever the reason, its departure is valid cause for concern.When tuberculosis patients reduce or go off their medications prema-turely, or begin taking lower quality ones, the bacteria that causes their disease can develop a resistance to the two most powerful anti-TB drugs, making the condition harder and much more expensive to treat. This kind of multi-drug resistant TB is most often found in China, India and Russia.And its a big problem in North Korea.Despite detente, sanctions on North Korea fan TB epidemicDoctor O Yong Il explains how patients are diagnosed at the National Tuberculosis Reference Laboratory in Pyongyang, North Korea.

DailyCommercial.com | Sunday, July 15, 2018 A7shape. Starting at Griffin Road, the citys property is shaped like an upside down triangle, or the top of a funnel. At the bottom, where it tends to square off, is the area where the baseball fields are located at Susan Street. A long, thin trail where railroad tracks used to be runs diagonally south from Griffin, next to Carver Middle School.Right smack in the middle of the jigsaw puzzle is the Birchwood Court neighborhood jutting into the mix. It is a blighted area, with a history of code enforcement woes and crime.Maybe the city needs to look at capturing all of this and condemning this property, and all of this becoming a giant park area for the city,Ž City Manager Al Minner said of Birchwood at the June 25 commission meeting. Taking the Birchwood property would take away the funnel shape and give the complex more of a usable rectangle.He said he was gung hoŽ on the idea six months ago, until he learned it would be a tougher dealŽ after talk-ing to City Attorney Fred Morrison.Weve been down this road before,Ž said Commissioner John Christian. He was referring to the citys acquisition a few years ago of property in the Kristin Court-Montclair area.The plan was to buy and demolish rundown apart-ments and build affordable housing. Then the reces-sion hit.Minner acknowledged the difficulty of acquiring Birchwood, which consists of several small owners. It could cost upward of $5 million. On the other hand, if we want to tackle blight and want to make a big statement, and we want to invest and fix community, I think we do take a long-term approachƒ.ŽHe said Atlanta took a similar step by restoring a golf course and completely renovating a poverty-stricken housing area.Commissioner Bob Bone said Fort Myers did the same thing with a spring training facility for the Boston Red Sox.There is an opportunity here to make a major recreation statement in the middle of town,Ž Minner said.Christian said Leesburg could be taking a page out of St. Peterburgs goal of being intentionalŽ in the way it plans and builds facilities. Building a new swimming pool to replace one at Venetian Gardens and the aging Dabney pool on Griffin Road makes sense, he said. There is already a city gym on Grif-fin, there is room for a proposed teen center, and the idea of reducing blight is a worthwhile goal, he said.Leesburgs master plan over the past few years has been to turn Venetian Gardens into a gem and a destination. The result has been a new playground, splash pad, restaurant site, improvements to Ski Beach and construction of a new community building, which begins Monday.Now, it is drafting new goals, and the No. 1 pro-posed goal is to eliminate blight and stimulate growth by advancing neighborhood redevelopment, creating new economic opportunities and invest-ing in infrastructure.ŽThis little neighborhood is ideally suited for redevelopment and fixing up,Ž Bone said. It could increase property values and give people a chance for ownership instead of rentals.ŽCreating a new, attrac-tive entryway to the Susan Street part of the complex is also a key part of the dis-cussion. One possibility is a new entrance off U.S. Highway 27 near Gateway Plaza. Another is an entryway behind Palm Plaza.The idea of buying the homes in Birchwood is not something that Mayor Dan Robuck III embraces.I think its unrealistic,Ž he said, citing the cost. It is true that the city can acquire some houses through foreclosure due to unpaid code enforcement fines, but that could take years, he said.He doesnt believe it is feasible to use a governments power of eminent domain to take property for a park.He also cites the failure of the Kristin Court project. The citys new resource center for residents has been built there, which is good, Robuck said, but the original idea was a bust, he said.Commissioners have been hearing from some residents from across the city who objected to putting a new pool near the rundown neighborhood.I think some people are overreacting,Ž Robuck told the Daily Commercial this week. I went there as a kid and I never felt unsafe. Theres crime everywhere. We could put up a big fence.ŽWendell Perry, who is a member of the citys recre-ation advisory board, said Monday he would like to see the neighborhood gone. Even if we dont buy it, we should build a wall around it,Ž he said.Minner put together a series of possible goals in a process he calls vision-ing,Ž and he has listed them by priority. The swimming pool and teen center are among the top goals.Projects to seriously considerŽ includes addressing the citys homeless problem, at a cost of $1 million.City officials have been talking for some time about somehow linking down-town to Venetian Gardens. One idea was building a tunnel beneath busy Dixie Avenue.Thats not going to happen,Ž Minner conceded this week, citing the esti-mated $3 million price tag.Another idea, in the long-range category, was to renovate the Pat Thomas Stadium baseball field, with an eye to trying to attract a minor league baseball team at a cost of $25 million.Thats never going to happen in my lifetime,Ž Minner said.Another unlikely project is spending $15 million to build a performing arts center.Commissioner Elise Dennison has urged Minner to find out how much it would cost to execute various options at the rec-reation complex.Minner said the city will need to hire a consultant to do that study. On Wednes-day, he said he hopes to have the study in his hand by the first of the year. POOLFrom Page A1 place on the citys Capi-tal Improvement Plan that will take Mount Dora through the next five years.One of the big items on that list is parking, something the city has earmarked more than $3 million to address.Different boards have reviewed all the parking plans and theyve gone through council,Ž City Manager Robin Hayes said. Were looking at some future land where we can approve surface park-ing lots with accessories like bathrooms in them. There are two locations in the downtown area being considered.Ž Another big-ticket item that has been identified as a big need in Mount Dora is more fire stations.The buildout of three stations over the course of three years to the tune of about $23 million is on the project list and ties in with the implementation of fire assessment fees the council has been contem-plating in order to help pay for associated costs like equipment, personnel, tower replacements and new fire engines.Hayes said taking future growth into account, it will take three fire stations for Mount Dora to operate at a level that comply with ISO standards for accreditation.Other projects to be con-sidered are a new public works facility, estimated at $11.8 million, and a renova-tion to City Hall that would include a parking garage in the back of the building to be used for employee and community event parking.Hayes said there are also multiple water and sewer projects that will ensure that the city can provide water to Wolf Branch and to future businesses and residents along U.S. Highway 441 toward State Road 46 and Orange County and $100,000 annually for 10 years that will go toward the Lake County Radio Safety System that includes buying radios for police, fire, public works and electric company employees in the case of emergencies.Smaller but important renew and replacement and maintenance projects on the list include a street resurfacing program for $200,000 that has to do with the repaving of parking lots, side street repair and sidewalks and a replacement plan for all electrical wood poles city wide, as well as the replacement of street light and overhead lines.During this process, were looking at projects that have been discussed, are in discussion or could be discussed in the future. Were dealing with the current year, but looking ahead four more years,Ž Hayes said.The projects on the citys proposed CIP summary, including anticipated future debt, total nearly $200-million. The next public workshop is scheduled for Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in council chambers.Hayes said projects on the CIP can be changed, revised or scrapped with council approval, depend-ing on how the citys needs change and whether or not the money and resources to support it remain.If a project is on the radar however, its best to include it, she added.The most important thing to remember is that these projects are coming from various funding sources, including sales tax, CRA, general funds and grants but if you dont have a project on your CIP, you cant apply for all the grants and free money thats out there,Ž Hayes said. You have to think big picture, long term and out of the box. You have to think of the future of your infrastruc-ture and what the needs are city-wide because we have to remain at 100 percent capacity at all times to make sure every-thing is running smoothly instead of allowing a break-down.Ž GROWTHFrom Page A1 Heidi Beirich, director of the Southern Poverty Law Centers Intelligence Project. Trump, in an interview with the British newspaper The Sun, blamed immigration for a chang-ing culture in Europe: I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad. I think you are losing your culture. Look around. You go through certain areas that didnt exist ten or 15 years ago.ŽTrump, the grandson of a German immigrant and the son of a Scottish immigrant to the United States, repeated his contention at a news conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May: I just think its chang-ing the culture. I think its a very negative thing for Europe. I think its very negative,Ž he said. I think its very much hurt other parts of Europe. And I know its politically not necessarily correct to say that, but Ill say it and Ill say it loud. And I think they better watch themselves because you are changing culture, you are changing a lot of things.ŽBeirich called those comments racist.ŽClaire M. Massey, a scholar at the Institute for British and North American Studies at Ernst-Moritz-Arndt Universitt in Greifswald, Germany, said Trumps comments were awfully painful,Ž especially for the United Kingdom, where immigration has played a key role in rebuilding the country after World War II. England and the United Kingdom wouldnt be what it is today without immigrants,Ž she said.Massey said Trumps comments remind her of the rhetoric coming from neo-Nazis in Germany and Poland. The comments will embolden the far-right in Europe at a time when many European nations are already very diverse.Lisbon, Portugal, for example, is now home to sizable and visible Brazil-ian, Cape Verdean, and Angolan populations. The immigrant groups and their Portuguese-born children have helped revitalize areas of the cities once in disrepair and have a presence in everything from professional soccer teams to popular culture. REMARKSFrom Page A1of Russians charged in the investigation. Trump has denied any collusion with Russia and has repeatedly cited Putins denials of any Russian interference in the campaign, suggesting there is little or nothing he can do to demand account-ability. The Kremlin has denied that the Russian state interfered in the election.The indictments were unsealed just hours after Trump again referred to Muellers inquiry as a witch huntŽ and after the president told report-ers at a news conference with British Prime Minis-ter Theresa May, I think I would have a very good relationship with Putin if we spend time together.ŽA day earlier in Brussels, Trump did say he would raise the election issue with Putin, but also said: I dont think youll have any Gee, I did it, I did it. You got me! There wont be Perry Mason here, I dont think. But I will absolutely, firmly ask the question.ŽTrump also has expressed little interest in continuing the harsh U.S. criticism of Russian activities in Syria, Ukraine and elsewhere, and of Russias human rights record. In fact, hes raised doubts about U.S. demands for Russia to return to Ukraine the territory of Crimea it annexed in 2014, and has suggested a bargain could be in the works for Russias ally Bashar Assad to remain in power indefinitely in Syria.Contrast that with the messaging of the State Department.Under Trump, the department has issued regular stinging critiques of Russia, including on human rights and press freedom. Those have been sustained since former CIA Direc-tor Mike Pompeo was installed as top U.S. diplomat in April and despite the presidents growing calls for friendship with Putin.Ahead of Russias national day on June 12, Pompeo said the United States honors the citizens of the Rus-sian Federation and their aspirations for the democratic principles of universal freedom, civil liberties, and the rule of law.Ž RUSSIAFrom Page A1

A8 Sunday, July 15, 2018 | DailyCommercial.com By Jill Colvin and Renata BritoThe Associated PressTURNBERRY, Scotland Two days before a high-stakes summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, President Donald Trump played golf and tweeted Saturday from one of his namesake resorts, blaming his predecessor for Russian election meddling and lashing out at the free press from foreign soil.Aides had said Trump would spend the weekend preparing to meet Putin on Monday in Helsinki, but the tweets showed other topics were on his mind.I have arrived in Scotland and will be at Trump Turnberry for two days of meetings, calls and hopefully, some golf my primary form of exercise! he tweeted early Saturday, referencing his seaside golf resort. The weather is beautiful, and this place is incredible! Tomorrow I go to Helsinki for a Monday meeting with Vladimir Putin.Trump was later seen playing the Turnberry links, several holes of which are visible from a nearby beach, where dozens of people staged a protest picnic Saturday. He was videotaped waving at protesters as they shouted No Trump, No KKK, No Racist USA! before resuming his game. He was also seen posing for photos. A line of police, some on horseback, stood between the course and protesters. Snipers perched atop a nearby tower overlooking the vast property.The protesters were among the thousands who came out in Scotland and England in opposition to the U.S. presidents visit to both countries.Some 10,000 people marched Saturday through the Scottish capital of Edinburgh, while police searched for a paraglider who breached a no-fly zone and flew a protest banner over the resort in western Scotland where Trump and his wife, Melania, are stay-ing through Sunday.The glider carried a banner that said Trump: Well Below Par over the resort Friday night to pro-test his environmental and immigration policies.In Edinburgh, anti-fas-cist groups and political activists joined those who said theyd never protested before, weaving through the capitals streets waving an array of makeshift anti-Trump banners. A choir, a bagpiper, a tambourine band and poetry readings added to the carnival spirit.Donald Trump is not welcome here, Scottish Labour leader Richard Leonard told the crowd. The horrific scenes at the Mexican border are just the latest example of his repu-diation of decent human values.Protesters also launched a 20-foot-tall (6-meter) blimp depicting Trump as an angry baby that had flown over anti-Trump protests in London on Friday.Trump has spent the weeklong trip wreaking havoc in Europe, first at a NATO summit in Brussels where he questioned the value of the decades-old alliance, and later in Brit-ain, where he faced fallout from a stunning newspaper interview in which he undermined British Prime Minister Theresa May at an especially vulnerable time.But Trump was also keeping tabs on domestic issues, including the investigations into Russian election meddling.In Saturdays tweets, Trump tried to blame former President Barack Obama for failing to stop the Russians from working to help him win the 2016 election.The stories you heard about the 12 Russians yes-terday took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administration, Trump tweeted, asking why they didnt do something about it, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the FBI in September, before the Election?Trump tweets, hits links before high-stakes Putin meetingU.S. President Donald Trump waves to protesters while he plays golf at the Turnberry golf club in Scotland.

DailyCommercial.com | Sunday, July 15, 2018 B1 Gov. Rick Scott is facing an environmental crisis of his own making. Scott issued an emergency order Monday in response to the toxic algae bloom covering most of Lake Okeechobee. Such declarations wont undo years of environmental degradation allowed in Florida under Scott and other Republican officials. Their current solution is typical, requiring hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to be spent cleaning up a mess that elected officials helped create. Repairing the dike around Lake Okeechobee and building a new reservoir might prevent water releases from further contaminating the river systems around the lake, but such steps fail to address the pollution fueling algae blooms. Scott and the GOP-controlled Legislature have made it easier to pollute Floridas natural environment during his two terms in office. Theyve slashed the budgets of water managers, eliminated an agency that regulated growth, cut enforcement of environmental regulations and spent money slated for land conservation on other uses. Scott is a climate-change denier whose agencies were forbidden to use the words climate change much less do anything about it. A recent report in the Tampa Bay Times suggests that climate change makes algae blooms such as the one in Lake Okeechobee and a long-running red tide along Floridas west coast more likely to occur. Climate change is causing water to warm and tends to produce more rain, leading to more runoff into water bodies. Warming water „ combined with runoff from agricultural operations, septic tanks and other sources „ can cause algae blooms that used to be smaller and more sporadic to be bigger and longer lasting. The bloom in Lake Okeechobee was estimated earlier this month to cover 90 percent of the 730-square-mile lake, with its green color able to be seen from space. Algae blooms are also happening to the east and west of the lake in the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee river systems, a problem that also occurred two years ago after water releases from the lake. The algae can kill animals, can cause respiratory problems and other health issues in humans, and has been linked to diseases such Alzheimers and ALS. It also causes economic damage to businesses that rely on tourism and outdoor activities such as boating and fishing. Scott has blamed the federal government rather than take responsibility for his administrations role in the environmental crisis. His emergency order „ which requires steps such as expanded water testing and clean-up grants „ is too little, too late. Scott is now running for the U.S. Senate and Agricultural Commissioner Adam Putnam is running for governor. Both have been hostile to meaningful environmental regulations, instead favoring voluntary measures to control pollution from agricultural operations such as the sugarcane growers in the Everglades area. Voters need to keep their environmental records in mind when casting ballots in the upcoming elections. From the polluted and depleted springs in our region to the algae blooms to the south, voters can see for themselves what happens when elected officials fail to protect the environment.OUR OPINIONAlgae blooms are part of Scotts legacy ANOTHER OPINION Congress, at fault, must “ x immigration woes Members of Congress, look at the mess you have caused for us, the U.S. citizens. You made and enacted immigration laws that have caused people to trespass onto U.S. territory, with their children, without the permission of the government, thus making them lawbreakers and subjecting them to the consequences of those laws. The laws separate the adults from the children and send the adults to jail. The children are detained as well, boys with boys, girls with girls, but without parents. When you crafted and passed those immigration laws, you made this separation necessary, since adults and children cannot be held together in prison cells. You knew this. But you figured the law would not be enforced by those responsible for enforcement. Surprise! Your laws are being carried out, and the voters are very angry. And so what do you do? You put the blame for this fiasco on the law enforcers as well as the president. Now you, members of Congress, are expecting President Trump to put a stop to this, the unpopular consequences of the laws that you made. For many years, you have said, We must protect our southern border,Ž and you even suggested building a wall. Had you done what you said should be done, we the citizens would not be facing the immigration problems that now trouble us. You need to change those badly written immigration laws. Do not put this off in hopes that the furor will die down, because this time it wont go away, and the November elections are coming.James L. Angelos, LeesburgTrumps rich Cabinet full of poor leaders Without resorting to ad hominem insults, I am going to try to explain just a few of the reasons why the Trump administration causes me great concern. Trumps Cabinet consists of a number of millionaires who are dipping their hands into taxpayer funds for personal use. These people hold positions they know nothing about, or they are the antithesis of the department they represent. For instance, Scott Pruitt, who was forced to resign as director of the Environmental Protection Agency, was tasked with doing everything he could, at Trumps direction, to rescind the environmental protections put in place over the past few decades that address clean air and water and ban products containing carcinogens. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson stated that being poor is a state of mind,Ž so in order to jump-start changes in these poor minds, HUD is raising the rents for people who can barely afford to eat after paying rent. Betsy DeVos, secretary of Education, never attended public school. When questioned by the Senate, she was unable to answer the most basic academic questions regarding public education. Ryan Zinke, secretary of the Interior, wants to scale back national parks and monuments and allow companies to mine for uranium and other products. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry, who knows nothing about what the Department of Energys tasks are, wants to dismantle it. The department is charged with maintaining and securing the nations nuclear weapons stockpile and, among other things, advancing the national, economic, and energy security of our country. Meanwhile, Trump continues to alienate and insult our allies while cozying up to the despotic leaders of North Korea, Russia and China. He backed out of the Iran nuclear agreement and the Paris Accord. His administration denies climate change, a serious problem we, Floridians, can no longer ignore.Barbara Hill, EustisLETTERS TO THE EDITOR OPINIONSteve Skaggs | Publisher Tom McNiff | Executive Editor Whitney Lehnecker | Digital Editor, Lifestyles Editor Tom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 tom.mcniff@dailycommercial.com By Patricia JacksonMany supporters, myself included, of Amendment 4 (Voting Rights Restoration for Felons Initiative), for felons who have served their sentences, were deeply disturbed by the results of a recent poll conducted by the Florida Chamber of Commerce, which reported that of the 13 amendments that will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot, Amendment 4 received the lowest support. For several years, countless volunteers went door to door to collect the 766,200 signatures required for the referendum to be placed on the November ballot. If this amendment fails to receive 60 percent of the vote, when will the opportunity present itself again? Florida has the unique distinction of being the only state where felons must wait an additional five to seven years after completing their sentence, which includes parole and probation, before theyre eligible to apply to have their rights restored. The process is lengthy and cumbersome, requiring the felon to supply numerous case-related documents. Then, once submitted, the application takes several years to process. Offenders who have committed more serious crimes are required to travel to Tallahassee for a hearing before the clemency board. If rejected, applicants must wait two years to reapply. This is not an issue of the 21st century or even of this decade but has its roots in Floridas Constitution, ratified in 1838, which established felony disenfranchisement. This law took effect in 1845, when Florida became a state. There were no reforms in felon voting rights until 1968, and that change only simplified the wording to include only felonies as reasons to ban criminals from voting. In 2007, Gov. Charlie Crist passed legislation that allowed ex-felons to regain the right to vote if approved by Floridas parole commission. This FROM THE LEFTRestoring felons right to vote long overdueA recent Gallup poll regrettably showed a record low of 47 percent of Americans extremely proud to be an American. This number is down from 51 percent a year ago and significantly less than the 70 percent figure recorded in 2003. Since I became aware of what it means to be an American, there has never been a day that I was not extremely proud to be an American, regardless of who was president. Knowing that our Founding Fathers said we had come together to "form a more perfect union," I have never expected perfection from an imperfect people, but what I have seen over my lifetime is a nation that saved the world from Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan and Italian Fascism. I also have seen America take on our biggest internal failure „ segregation „ and emerge over the years as the leading country in the world offering upward mobility to those who live here regardless of race, creed or color. Are we perfect? No. Will we ever be perfect? No. Is mankind capable of being perfect anywhere else? No! As one digs deeper into the Gallup study, it is pretty evident that political leanings play a role in the statistical outcome. National pride has dropped the most among Democrats and liberals. The study showed that only 32 percent of Democrats, down from 43 percent in 2017, are extremely proud to be an American. This should come as no surprise as the daily anti-Trump onslaught of media bias against the president has had an impact. As much as I did not approve of the policies of President Obama, I never once let that influence my pride in being an American. Unlike Michele Obama, who said upon the election of her husband to the presidency: For FROM THE RIGHTAmerican pride dwindles among Democrats, liberals Russ Sloan See LEFT, B2 See RIGHT, B2

B2 Sunday, July 15, 2018 | DailyCommercial.com OPINION ANOTHER OPINION allowed over 150,000 ex-felons to regain the right to vote, but it was reversed under Gov. Rick Scott, who also added a five-year waiting period between the end of a sentence and application for voting reinstatement. In 2011, the Florida Rules of Executive Clemency eliminated the automatic restoration of civil rights, and the ability to vote will no longer be granted for any offenses. What are the statistics and racial demographics of those disenfranchised? Not surprising, these laws are deeply rooted in our countrys troubled racial history and have a disproportionate impact on minorities. Across the country, one in every 13 voting-age AfricanAmericans has lost the right to vote, which is four times higher than the rate for all other Americans. Bringing these numbers closer to home, 10.43 percent of Floridas population is disenfranchised, or 1,686,318 Floridians. Florida has the highest rate of disenfranchised citizens in the nation, and 23.3 percent of black voters in Florida cant vote because of felony disenfranchisement. LEFTFrom Page B1the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country.Ž I was stunned an appalled that the wife of any American president would make such a statement. The numbers were even lower among liberal voters than Democrats, with just 23 percent claiming extreme pride in being American. Republicans lead the political spectrum in being proud to be an American at 74 percent, with Independents at 42 percent. As one might expect, older Americans reflect their pride far more than younger Americans. They have seen far more history of the massive good America has done worldwide than our younger generation. It also tells me that we are failing miserably in teaching American history at all levels in education. While recently watching interviews on television with students at one college campus who were asked about the relevance of the Fourth of July, the answers by the majority displayed an inexcusable ignorance. How is it possible that kids in college can be so clueless about American history, especially Independence Day? As we watch the Democratic Party veering further and further to the left, it explains to me the current feeling revealed by Gallup that only one in three Democrats are proud to be an American. The votes that Socialist Bernie Sanders garnered during the 2016 Democratic primary, especially among the young, should be a wake up call to not just the Democrats, but to all Americans. The extreme liberal element of the party seem to be in position to furnish the most likely presidential candidates for the Democrats in 2020. Democrats such as Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Corey Booker and Kristen Gillibrand are all calling for the elimination of ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) showing a total disregard for protecting our people and our nation. Among the most important obligations of our elected officials is protecting Americans from a military invasion, from criminal elements, from terrorists and from illegal aliens, regardless of their country of origin. Currently, illegal immigration is our nations Achilles heel. Id wager that at least half of the worlds population would eagerly come to America if possible. But apparently only one-third of Democrats are proud to be an American. Maybe we can make a trade, offering to exchange those dissatisfied American Democrats for those throughout the world who would be absolutely thrilled to be an American and enjoy our freedoms and potential for prosperity. RIGHTFrom Page B1If Alexander Hamilton had been nominated for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court today, Democrats would likely oppose him. About the court, Hamilton said: (A) limited constitution ... can be preserved in practice no other way than through the medium of courts of justice, whose duty it must be to declare all acts contrary to the manifest tenor of the constitution void. Without this, all the reservations of particular rights or privileges would amount to nothing. ... To deny this would be to affirm ... that men acting by virtue of powers may do not only what their powers do not authorize, but what they forbid...Ž In Federalist No. 78, Hamilton said that the judiciary branch of the proposed government would be the weakest of the three branches because it had no influence over either the sword or the purse; no direction either of the strength or of the wealth of the society. ... It may truly be said to have neither FORCE nor WILL, but merely judgment...Ž Today, however, the judiciary seems to have surpassed Congress and rival even the executive branch as it has, particularly in the last century, assumed powers unto itself that the Constitutions framers never intended. Given his record and views of the Constitution, President Trumps latest Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, is in line with Hamiltons thinking, but out of line with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and most Democrats. Yet, in a closely divided Senate, some Democrats may be needed to seat Kavanaugh, given the uncertainty as to how Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Ark.), both pro-choice on the issue of abortion, will vote. Then, for some, theres the issue of Kavanaughs Catholic faith, which Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) has already disparaged. Last year, during confirmation hearings for Notre Dame Law School Professor Amy Coney Barrett for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, Feinstein said, the dogma lives loudly within you. And thats of concern when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for, for years, in this country.Ž Would Feinstein be equally concerned that an atheist might impose his or her views on the Constitution, if those views tracked with a verse from the Old Testament, with which Feinstein, born into a Jewish family, might be familiar? In those days Israel had no king; all the people did whatever seemed right in their own eyes.Ž (Judges 21:25, NLT) For some Democrats, its all about abortion and same-sex marriage, neither of which are mentioned in the Constitution and both of which have been created as rights by a majority of justices whose fealty appears to have been to public opinion and their own biases, rather than to the nations founding document. Rush Limbaugh had a good suggestion for Republicans. On his radio show, Limbaugh said Republicans should dispense with a lengthy confirmation process and visits by Kavanaugh to the offices of individual senators (they know him because he has visited before during his previous confirmation) and get right to a confirmation vote. Dont let senators go home for summer recess, where they will be confronted by protestors and demands that they oppose him, he said. Dont allow TV ads designed to sway senators, the ad campaigns planned even before the nomination, to have an effect. Limbaugh wants Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to schedule hearings next week, followed by a quick vote afterward. Democrats and big media will scream, but Republicans have an opportunity to do something they have traditionally been squeamish about … use power when they have it. If Republicans stay unified, and if they can pick off two or three Democrats who are up for re-election in states where President Trump won handily in 2016, Kavanaugh, with his stellar credentials, should be easily and properly confirmed.FROM THE RIGHTGOP stratey key to Kavanaugh con rmation Cal Thomas For barbecuing. For selling bottled water. For napping in a dorm. For mowing a lawn. For smoking. Perhaps you recognize the list. If not, be advised that it represents a few of the slew of recent high-profile episodes in which police have been called out on black people for reasons so trivial, nonsensical and stupid as to defy belief. These incidents, many captured in cellphone video, have resulted in anger, ridicule, occasional job loss for the instigators and, in one case, corporate sensitivity training. They have also provided a window, for those who need it, into the challenge of breathing, existing, minding your own business, just trying to go about your day, while black. Not that there is anything new here. To the contrary, this behavior is as old as the republic. The only difference is that now we see it on video, and more attention is being paid. But if, for some of us, this is a trending topic, it is, for the rest of us, just life. Weve never known a country wherein some white people did not feel they had the absolute, God-ordained prerogative to regulate us … nor the right to call police when we declined to be regulated. Why else do you think George Zimmerman felt empowered to stalk 17-year-old Trayvon Martin through a Sanford neighborhood? He would require this unknown boy to explain himself. He would get answers. He ended up killing the child instead. Friday makes five years since a Florida jury failed to hold him accountable. Zimmerman, portrayed by his legal team as an innocent man just trying to defend his neighborhood, has since compiled a long list of run-ins with the law. And Trayvon, the boy who simply had to be up to something, is still dead. Yet too many white people still accord themselves the right to demand that black people explain themselves. In recent days, cops have been called on African-Americans ... For working out at a gym. For shopping. For stopping for dinner at Subway. For trying to use a community pool. For wearing socks at a community pool. The Nightly Show with Larry WilmoreŽ used to display a world map with the South Pole on top. Its a perfectly valid view … theres no up or down in space … but if youve grown used to viewing the world north-side up, it was jarring, a visual metaphor for how difficult it can be to see a familiar thing from an unfamiliar point of view. If you are white in America, the familiar thing is the idea that black equals danger. And too often, you dont question that assumption. You barely know youve made it. Im reminded of a reader who wrote to tell me what black people must do to earn his respect. That we should crave his respect was a given. That maybe he should ask how he might earn our respect did not enter into his thinking. Just as he didnt recognize, much less question, his implicit assumptions, many white people never question their rightŽ to regulate African-Americans. It never occurs to them that black people, who work, pay taxes, go to school, raise their kids and get dinner on just like normal people, deserve to expect, just like normal people, that theyll be left the heck alone when bothering no one and minding their own business. Five years after the Zimmerman acquittal would be an excellent time for them to finally get that. Because its tiresome to know that on any given day, you might be stopped and required to explain yourself ... For checking out of an Airbnb. For inspecting a house. For golfing. For waiting at Starbucks. For walking home in the rain.FROM THE LEFTTired of having to explain ourselves Leonard Pitts Remember Cecil, the African lion killed in 2015 by a Minnesota dentist? The dentist shot Cecil with a crossbow, skinned him and then took his head as a trophy. Cecil's death stirred worldwide revulsion, forced the dentist into hiding and, we trust, scared off other trophy hunters who would kill these magnificent beasts for sport. We don't know if lions hold grudges, but we're tempted to say that Cecil's relatives in Africa may have long memories. That was our first thought when we heard about what happened to a group of rhinoceros poachers who recently crept into a South African game reserve. The armed poachers apparently intended to kill rhinos and saw off their horns (worth about $9,000 a pound). What happened looks a lot like sweet revenge. Officials found a skull and a "bit of pelvis," Nick Fox, owner of the private game reserve, told Newsweek. "Everything else was completely gone." Fox wasn't even sure how many poachers there were, but three sets of shoes and gloves were found. "I think we had a stroke of luck here," he said. "The lions got to them before they got to the rhinos." Veterinarians and conservation workers assessed six lions believed to be among the culprits. Conclusion: The lions' behavior was normal. Apparently, the animals react differently toward people in vehicles who come to gawk than they react to people on foot who come to make mischief. Our surmise: When lions see people in vehicles, they may think, "tourist." When they see people on foot with guns, they think "lunch." Sadly, rhino poaching is a big criminal business in South Africa, with more than 1,000 rhinos slaughtered in 2017. Poachers have already driven one rhino species, the northern white rhino, to near extinction. Only two females remain. But researchers say they've developed a hybrid rhinoceros embryo to be implanted in a surrogate rhino in hopes of restarting a herd. That would be wonderful. Even more wonderful would be to develop better ways to discourage poachers from killing endangered animals in the first place. Unfortunately, that's not likely to happen while black markets thrive. Which means animals will continue to be driven to near extinction by the most treacherous beast of all. "The northern white rhinoceros didn't fade from evolution, it faded because it wasn't bulletproof," said Thomas Hildebrandt of the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research. Poachers who kill and mutilate for profit don't deserve much sympathy. Looks like they didn't get any from the lions. Rest easy, Cecil.

After placing 12th at the U.S. Open last month for his best finish at a major, Knox was runner-up at the French Open and then won the Irish Open last week thanks to consecutive 40-foot birdie putts on the 72nd hole and first playoff hole.Now, hes got a great chance to win his home championship, a week before heading to the British Open also in Scotland. Theres also potentially the not-so-small matter of a first appearance at the Ryder Cup in September.Im loving the way Im swinging and the putts are going in,Ž Knox said. Im just playing with a smile on my face.ŽThe 49th-ranked Knox said his energy levels were Knox's glorious summer continues at Scottish Open See GOLF, C6

Agent Mark Bartelstein confirmed the deal shortly after the Milwaukee Bucks rescinded their qualifying offer. That made Parker an unrestricted free agent, clearing the way for him to join the rebuilding Bulls.The 23-year-old Parker led Chicagos Simeon Career Academy to four state championships and starred for one season at Duke before the Bucks drafted him with the No. 2 overall pick in 2014.Parker has averaged 15.3 points and 5.5 rebounds. His best season was in 2016-17 when he averaged 20.1 points in 51 games before tearing his ACL a second time. He played 31 games last year, aver-aging 12.6 points and 4.9 rebounds.TORONTOFan support has dwindled at IndyCar raceIt has been nearly 10 years since Paul Godfrey brokered a deal to secure $2 million in provincial and municipal subsidies to help bring Torontos IndyCar race back from the dead.Fans, however, have been lukewarm about the race since it returned to the city in 2009 after a one-year hiatus.The race routinely attracted more than 70,000 people and about 170,000 over the course of three days during the 1990s and early 2000s, but the turnout figures to be far lower this weekend for the Honda Indy.

DailyCommercial.com | Sunday, July 15, 2018 C3By Howard FendrichAssociated PressLONDON „ From the way Novak Djokovic repeatedly smacked his racket against his shoe after one miss, to the shouts directed at himself and his coach after others, it was clear how much he wanted to prove hes past the roughest patch of his career.Djokovic sent the stron-gest signal yet he is back at the top of tennis by reach-ing his fifth Wimbledon final with a 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (9), 3-6, 10-8 victory over rival Rafael Nadal on Saturday in a match sus-pended overnight.It really could have gone either ways,Ž said Djokovic, who is bidding for a fourth championship at the All England Club and 13th Grand Slam title overall. Basically until the last shot, I didnt know if I was going to win.Ž Hell face Kevin Ander-son in Sundays final. Anderson beat John Isner in a 6-hour semifinal that ended at 26-24 fifth set Friday night, pushing back the start of Djokovic vs. Nadal.The second semifinal then was halted when the third set ended just past 11 p.m., because of a neighborhood curfew. It had started with Centre Courts retractable roof closed and so concluded that way, too, even though there was no hint of rain.It all made for an unusual schedule, with the start of the womens final „ normally the stand-alone showcase on the fortnights last Satur-day „ delayed until Nadal and Djokovic finished.Djokovic hasnt won a major in more than two years, dealing with an injured right elbow that was so painful in 2017 he quit his quarterfinal at Wimbledon and sat out the rest of the season. He had surgery in February, but his results were still shaky.Until now, that is. His defense and returning are as good as ever and made the difference in his 52nd career tour-level meeting with Nadal, more than any other two men have played.In my opinion, he deserved it,Ž Nadal said. I deserved it, too.ŽUndaunted by losing a lead and being forced to an extra set, Djokovic saved break points at 4-all and 7-all in the fifth, before breaking Nadal at love to end things.Its hard to pick the words,Ž said Djokovic, who has won his past eight five-setters at Wimbledon. Im just going through things, flashbacks of the last 15 months, and everything Ive been through to get here.ŽAs intense as any athletes in any sport, these two didnt exactly slowly ramp things up when they returned to Centre Court about 14 hours after theyd departed. Having the roof shut meant every sound was amplified as it rico-cheted off the dome „ the thwack of ball off racket, the players grunts, the spectators applause.This was high-decibel, high-stakes, high-quality tennis between two of the greats right from the get-go, beginning with an 18-point, sixdeuce game that lasted 15 minutes and felt truly pivotal. It included a 23-stroke exchange and three others of at least 11. Nadal saved two break points and when he finally held, the owner 17 major championships, two at Wimbledon, punched the air and yelled as if hed won the match, not a soli-tary game.Hes back: Djokovic tops Nadal to reach 5th Wimbledon nalNovak Djokovic gestures after winning a point during his mens singles semi“ nals match against Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon in London on Saturday.

[AP PHOTO / TIM IRELAND] By James EllingworthAssociated PressST. PETERSBURG, Russia „ Belgium and Eng-land both leave the World Cup happy to have reached the semifinals. Belgium may be a little happier, though.The Belgians earned their highest World Cup finish by beating England 2-0 in the third-place match on Saturday. Thomas Meunier and Eden Hazard scored a goal each.These players didnt want to rely on talent any-more, wanted to work as a team,Ž Belgium coach Roberto Martinez said. Their standards have been magnificent. They wanted to make the country proud, every single Red Devils fan proud.ŽFrance and Croatia will play in the final on Sunday at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. The French beat Belgium on Tuesday in the semifinals, while the Croats defeated England on Wednesday.Meuniers early goal matched a World Cup record for Belgium by having 10 different players score in a tournament, something only done before by France in 1982 and Italy in 2006.Both Belgium and England were playing for the seventh time in 26 days, but the Belgians entered the match with an extra day of rest.Meunier scored in the fourth minute, knocking a cross from Nacer Chadli past England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. Hazard added the other off a pass from Kevin De Bruyne in the 82nd.Toby Alderweireld denied Englands best chance of the game, sliding on the goal line to clear a shot from Eric Dier. England matched its best World Cup result „ fourth in 1990 „ since winning the tournament for the only time in 1966.Today shows theres room for improvement. Were not the finished article. Were still learning. Were still getting better,Ž England striker Harry Kane said. We dont want to wait another 20-odd years to get into another major semifinal.ŽBelgiums previous best finish at the World Cup was fourth, but the team outplayed England in the midfield to go one better this time. The Belgians could easily have scored more, with Pickford making a good save to stop a shot from De Bruyne in the 11th and Alderweireld volleying narrowly over the bar in the 35th.England made set pieces the cornerstone of its run to the World Cup semifinals and created chances for Harry Maguire and Dier in the second half. Neither hit the target with their headers.It was the second time England and Belgium met in this years tournament. In the group stage, both teams had already qualified before Belgiums 1-0 win in Kaliningrad.FRESH LEGSEngland coach Gareth Southgate made five changes to face Belgium, but Danny Rose and Fabian Delph made little impact while Dier started slowly but threatened in the second half.Phil Jones failed to inter-cept the pass that led to Hazards goal.The two replacements in Belgiums lineup were more effective. Meunier scored and Youri Tielemans domi-nated the midfield. GOLDEN BOOTKane is still placed to win the Golden Boot with a tour-nament-leading six goals ahead of Sundays final.Kane last scored in Englands win over Colombia in the round of 16. On Sat-urday, he slipped as he shot wide in the first half, then failed to make contact with Jesse Lingards cross early in the second.Romelu Lukaku couldnt add to his four goals for Bel-gium and was substituted shortly after misjudging a through ball by De Bruyne.Belgium nishes 3rd at World Cup, beats England 20Belgiums Eden Hazard runs in celebration after scoring his sides second goal during the third-place match against England at the World Cup in St. Petersburg, Russia, on Saturday. [AP PHOTO / PETR DAVID JOSEK] By Matt HolzapfelCorrespondentLEESBURG „ The car-diac kids are at it again. The Leesburg Lightning used a six-run rally in the bottom of the eighth inning to defeat the Winter Park Diamond Dawgs 7-5 on Friday night at Pat Thomas Stadium-Buddy Lowe Field.Trailing 5-1 going to the bottom of the eighth, Leesburg loaded the bases on a walk and a pair of sin-gles. With one out, Sean Mootrey drew a walk to force in a run and Tanner Clark was hit by a pitch to score a second run.The Lightning closed within a run on a fielders choice and Luke Brown tied the game with an RBI double. Jake Matulia brought home the win-ning runs with a two-run single to center field.The energy from the home dugout at Pat Thomas Stadium could be felt all the way into the stands, and Lightning coach Rich Billings acknowledged how important that was in the comeback.Thats what makes summer ball fun, theyre allowed to have some fun in the dugout, theyre allowed to maybe come out of character a little bit,Ž Billings said. Were a different team when our guys show up and theyre excited and energetic, summers long enough, we need the energy to be able to get through it.ŽBefore Leesburgs big rally, Billings gathered the team outside of their dugout and delivered a speech that ignited the fire in their bats, implor-ing each player to play for one another and give the game all they had.Its just about enthusiasm, I told them no employee or player ever wants to show up and play for a coach or a boss thats not happy to be there,Ž Billings said. Its the same flip-flopped, coaches and bosses dont want to manage people that arent excited. I talked to them about the excitement, the energy, it was just bad for the first seven innings.ŽThe Lightning were scheduled to play a doubleheader against the Winter Garden Squeeze on Saturday. The league takes Monday and Tuesday off for the Prospect Showcase and the Light-ning resume action on Wednesday when they host DeLand at Pat Thomas Stadium at 7 p.m.Lightning use big rally in 8th to down Winter Park

DailyCommercial.com | Sunday, July 15, 2018 C5Tip of the week: According to Capt. Kyle Messier, when scalloping, the best places to search are areas with short and thin seagrass on sandy potholes. 1. Yankeetown/Waccasassa: According to Jim Zaloga, the boat ramps and water in Crystal River were jammed last weekend and will be jammed this weekend. If you want to catch “ sh, stay away from there. Red snapper are slowly moving further out. Start at 55 feet or more. Cobia are hanging around marker and drop offs. Ever try a small cat“ sh for bait? They work and they are free. 2. Crystal River/Homosassa: Capt. William Toney writes that scalloping season has picked up. After a slow Fourth of July week, the weekend made up for the lack of folks visiting the areas boat ramps. Buckets of scallops have been harvested from the area's northeast of the Bird Rack, near the Homosassa channel marker #6 and just south of the Chassahowitzka Tower. The larger scallops are found to the south or deeper waters outside of the ” eet of vessels. The water clarity is excellent. An everyday angler that Toney said he talks with often, gave a tip on catching some trout. He has been catching his limit of trout inside the scallop ” eet during the incoming tide. His claim is that all of the splashing and scallop cleaning creates a chum line. The “ sh back at the dock do not lie. His bait of choice is Gulp! Red“ shing with live shrimp (hard to “ nd) or live pin“ sh is good on the “ rst part of the incoming tide. Outside points with jumping or stacked up mullet are the best spots. High incoming tide will be in the afternoon this weekend. 3. Withlacoochee: No update. 4. Orange Lake/Lochloosa: Lochloosa Harbor reports that bass have been biting on the top water using spinning baits and frogs. There was an 11.7-pound bass caught on Orange Lake recently. Specks and pan“ sh have been found in the pads with regularity. 5. Ocklawaha River: No update. 6. Salt Springs: According to Liz at Fat Daddys shellcrackers, bluegill and bass have been biting on the St. Johns River. 7. Forest Lakes: Liz at Fat Daddy's reports that “ shermen have been catching a lot of shellcrackers and bluegill on all lakes because they are bedding. She recommends using worms and crickets. Lake Bryant and Half Moon have been great stops of late. Bass also are being caught with regularity. The daily rains have helped, and many anglers are “ shing in the mornings and evenings. 8. Lake Weir: Liz at Fat Daddy's reports that shellcrackers, bluegill and bass are being caught. She added that quite a few large bass were reeled in during Tuesdays tournament here.FISHING REPORT 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12GAINESVILLE GAINESVILLE OCALA 75 1 10 miles Lake Lochloosa Rodman Reservoir OCALA NATIONAL FOREST Lake George Lake Delancy Lake Kerr Sellers Lake Lake Dorr Lake Grif“n Tsalsa Apopka Lake Crystal River Homosassa River Lake Eustis Little Lake Harris Lake Harris Lake Yale Lake Rousseau Withlacoochee River Waccasassa Ponce de Leon Inlet Orange LakeGulf of Mexico Atlantic Ocean Waccasassa River Yankeetown New Smyrna Beach Salt Springs GATEHOUSE MEDIA Source: maps4news.com/HERE 1 By Doug FergusonAssociated PressThe scenes were nothing alike and wildly memorable. Both started with a tee shot that sailed some 60 yards to the right during the final round of the British Open, and thats where the similarities end.Seve Ballesteros didnt have to take a penalty drop from near the front tire of a black car in a parking lot at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. He had a two-shot lead, and once he dropped his ball away from the cars, he had a short iron onto the green. The great Spaniard went on to capture his first major championship in 1979, and he was jokingly referred to as the Car Park Champion.Ž Jordan Spieth?He became the Driving Range ChampionŽ at Royal Birkdale, and it was no joke.Spieth already had lost his three-shot lead in the final round last year when his drive on the 13th hole flew well to the right toward the dunes, hit a spectator in the head and wound up in a bush. Spieth had no shot, and really no place to drop that improved his chances. His best option was to go back to the tee and play his third shot. But wait.Is the range out of bounds?Ž Spieth asked.The rest was a blur, until he arrived home in Dallas with the claret jug and watched replays for the first time.I could help but turn on the final round, and actu-ally fast-forward until the tee shot on 13. I didnt watch the first 12 holes,Ž Spieth said. For me, it went by pretty quickly because it was, OK, deci-sion here, decision here, now I need to drop here. But with the coverage, with the commercials, and then they come back and it seems like we havent even moved, it was like, Man, that really did take a long time. That was kind of tough to watch.ŽThe ending was remarkable.Once it was determined the range was in play, Spieth hit 3-iron over the dunes toward a green he couldnt see, coming up just short. He pitched delicately over a pot bunker and made the putt for a bogey.And then it was pure Spieth after that.He nearly holed his tee shot on the par-3 14th with a 6-iron for birdie. He made a 50-foot eagle putt on the 15th, a 30-foot birdie putt on the 16th, an 8-foot birdie putt on the 17th and just like that, he was three legs home to a career Grand Slam.After the 13th hole, everything went slower to me than whats on TV,Ž he said. So its kind of this flip based on what I was watching and how I was feeling. For me, it was this whole regrouping and re-motivating and resetting a goal. And all that kind of took place pretty quickly in real time.ŽSpieth rarely makes it easy on himself.Of his three majors, only his wire-to-wire, fourshot victory at the 2015 Masters lacked any real drama. His U.S. Open title that summer at Chambers Bay featured a signature, 25-foot birdie putt on the 16th, a three-putt double bogey on the 17th and help from Dustin Johnson, who three-putted from 12 feet for par on the final hole.Spieth had a five-shot lead on the back nine at the 2016 Masters, made qua-druple-bogey 7 with two shots into Raes Creek, and never recovered. He couldnt put away the Travelers Champion-ship last year until he was forced into a playoff, and then holed a bunker shot. Still only 24 for another few weeks, Spieth is look-ing at the big picture of his career, the British Open is a big part of it.Ive kind of had a careers worth of experience in four years, which is I think advantageous going forward, the way I look at it,Ž he said. Having a positive experience off of losing a lead and being able to regain it within a major championship Sunday is one that not many people have. I wasnt trying to do it. But I can certainly look back on that as, Man, positives can come out of what really seems like a day thats not going my way.ŽAnd thats why hes not overly concerned now.The Open was his last victory, and lately, he hasnt been particularly close. He was nine shots back in the final round of the Masters when he nearly produced the biggest rally in Augusta National history, closing with a 64 „ with a bogey on the final hole „ to finish two back of Patrick Reed.British Open title shows Spieth can handle anythingJordan Spieth celebrates winning the British Open Golf Championships on July 23, 2017, at Royal Birkdale in Southport, England. [AP PHOTO / PETER MORRISON, FILE] By Charles OdumAssociated PressATLANTA „ Nick Markakis kept saying he'd rather have a four-day break with his family than be named an All-Star.Actually receiving his first All-Star selection changed all that. Suddenly he realized he'll relish the time with his wife and three sons at a setting where he'll be recognized as one of the game's biggest stars."Yeah, it's one of those feelings that you've never felt before," Markakis said. "It's definitely spe-cial, especially with my kids being old enough to be able to share it and remember it."Markakis, 34, collected 2,165 hits and two Gold Gloves in 13 seasons, including nine with Baltimore, before finally breaking through for his first All-Star selection in his fourth season with Atlanta.His breakthrough left no room for doubt. After so many years of being an also-ran in the voting, Markakis led all National League outfielders with 3,556,469 votes."It's going to be exciting," Markakis said. "It's going to be a fun couple of days up there. I'm excited to share it with my kids and share it with my team-mates who are coming along with me."Juan Pierre, who had 2,217 hits for six teams in his 14-year career that ended in 2013, is the only player with more hits than Markakis who was never named an All-Star.Those who have been around Markakis the lon-gest had the loudest cheers for the selection many said was long overdue."One of the happiest moments of my big league career was giving him that All-Star envelope," Braves manager Brian Snitker said.Former Braves third baseman Chipper Jones used his Twitter account to say the All-Star honor was long overdue.Orioles manager Buck Showalter enjoyed seeing his former right fielder finally thrust into the spotlight."I can't imagine anyone having a more All-Star worthy season than Nick Markakis," Showalter said when the Orioles visited Atlanta in late June. "There is such a self-pride there. Contracts don't drive him. The only thing that drives him is winning."Showalter has a special appreciation for the role Markakis holds with a rebuilding Braves team that also features such young players as All-Star second baseman Ozzie Albies, 21, and left fielder Ronald Acuna Jr., 20."To try to put a young team together, to have a guy like Nick around is paramount," Showalter said.Markakis said he tries to provide a guide for younger players by stick-ing to a strict routine each day."I've got myself in a rou-tine I do daily," he said. "I try to stay within that and not stray too far from it. Even when I was young I watched the older guys and how they prepared themselves with what they did. It rubbed off on me and now here I am today doing it and hopefully I can help my teammates and the younger guys."Even at 34, Markakis said he also can learn from the young rookies."I'm learning from them and hopefully they can learn from me, too," he said. "Just go about your business and do what you can to help a ballclub win every day."Markakis has helped the Braves lead the NL East for much of the season. He entered Saturday's game against Arizona leading the NL with 118 hits and 39 multi-hit games and tied for the lead with 29 doubles. His .324 batting average ranked second in the league.Long wait for Nick Markakis ends with rst All-Star selectionAtlanta B raves Nick Markakis follows through on a grand slam during the “ fth inning of a game against the St. Louis Cardinals on June 30 in St. Louis.

C6 Sunday, July 15, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comIn this March 12 photo, President Donald Trump speaks during a ceremony honoring the World Series Champion Houston Astros, in the East Room of the White House in Washington. [ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO]Modric has been the rock and the spark for Croatia. When the Real Madrid midfielder has the ball at his feet, good things seem to happen for Croatia.Even when you think theyre going to lose, or going to crack, they always have the mentality to come back,Ž Mbappe said of the Croatian team. Its a team that plays with a lot of intensity.ŽFrance last won the World Cup title in 1998, at home. The French defeated Croatia in the semifinals that year, which until now had been the countrys best showing at the tournament.The heads of state from both countries are expected to sit with Putin. Will Smith is set to headline the closing ceremony.Croatia, a country of 4.5 million people that gained independence from the former Yugoslavia only 27 years ago, enters the final after playing three straight extra-time matches, including two nerve-racking penalty shootouts.In all three of those matches, Croatia has had to recover from being a goal down. The players never gave up.When you put the sacred Croatia shirt on you become a different person,Ž Croatia mid-fielder Ivan Rakitic said through a translator. Im not trying to say its a superior feeling that the French have for France, or Russians for Russia.The best feeling is to be Croat these days and this is the source of all our strength.ŽWhile Croatia had to rally to keep advancing, France won all three of its knockout games in the regulation 90 minutes and trailed for only nine of the 540-plus minutes it has been on the field. EUROPE WINSFrance or Croatia will become the fourth different European country to become world cham-pion in a streak started when Italy beat the French in the 2006 final.Spain won the 2010 title in another Europe-only final against the Netherlands, and Germany defeated Argentina in 2014 to become the first Euro-pean team to win the World Cup in South America. PRIZE MONEYThere is $10 million in extra prize money on the line at the Luzhniki Stadium.FIFA will give $38 million to the winning teams national soccer federation. The runner-up gets $28 million.The total prize fund for the 32 competing teams is $400 million. FIFA gives each team at least $8 million. FINALS CLASH Both the World Cup final and mens final at Wimbledon are today and could overlap.The tennis final starts in London two hours before the soccer kicks off in Moscow. MIDFIELD ARCHITECTIf Rakitics soccer career had not led him to the World Cup final, he might have helped design the Luzhniki Stadiums recent reconstruction.Rakitic studied architecture while growing up in Switzerland, and trained at the Basel offices of Herzog & de Meuron.He said he worked in an office that made blueprintsŽ for the Birds Nest, the main stadium for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The firm also designed the stadium for Bayern Munich that opened ahead of the 2006 World Cup. WORLD CUPFrom Page C1Angelique Kerber returns a ball to Serena Williams during the womens singles “ nal at Wimbledon in London on Saturday. [ANDREW COULDRIDGE, POOL VIA AP] much-anticipated summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin the day before the Midsummer Classic.From Taft to Nixon, before Washington left for good the second time, every president threw out a first pitch at least one timeŽ in the nations capital, said Frederic Frommer, author of You Gotta Have Heart,Ž a history of Washington baseball.Richard Nixon was the last president to perform the duty for the Washington Senators, the second version of which moved to Texas in 1972. George W. Bush and Barack Obama revived the tradition after the Montreal Expos moved to town in 2005 and became the Nationals.So far, Trump hasnt „ and, in fact, baseball hasnt drawn a lot of his attention. Hes feuded with the NFL over players who knelt in protest during the national anthem, and he disinvited the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers from the White House before they met in the NBA Finals after star players on both teams spoke out against him.By contrast, last years World Series winners, the Houston Astros, visited the White House without much fuss.Washington got its first All-Star game in 1937, when Franklin D. Roosevelt threw the first pitch from his presidential box at Griffith Stadium. Dwight D. Eisenhower skipped the duty in 1956 while he was recovering from surgery. John F. Kennedy tossed the first ball in 1962 at D.C. Stadium, which was later renamed for his slain brother, Robert.And Nixon delegated firstpitch duties to Vice President Spiro Agnew in 1969 after the game was postponed by a day because of rain „ Nixon had a preplanned trip to the Pacific Ocean, to greet the Apollo 11 astronauts after the first moonwalk.The last president to toss a ceremonial pitch at an All-Star Game was Obama in 2009 in St. Louis.Unlike presidents, members of Congress can sit in the stands and enjoy relative anonymity. Democrat John Delaney of Maryland tries to make it to about a dozen games a year, although he hasnt been this season, in part because hes running for president.Theres something about the location of the stadium being adjacent to Capitol Hill and the fact that several colleagues actually live over there,Ž Delaney said. We think of the stadium as almost a part of Capitol Hill because its so close.ŽPick any night at the ball-park, which sits just over a mile south of the Capitol on the Anacostia River, and devoted politics-watchers are likely to find current and former lawmakers, pundits and other establishment figures.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is a Nats fan, and so is his Democratic predecessor, Harry Reid. Both men told From-mer the team was one topic they could discuss without things getting heated.Davis said he frequently runs into fellow Virginians from both sides of the aisle, including Republican Congressman Bob Goodlatte, who on Thursday presided over a lengthy hearing about possible bias in the FBI during its investigation of Trumps campaign, and Congressman Gerry Connolly, a Democrat who blasted the hearing as a politically motivated smear campaign.In a city where politicians are the chief celebrities, the ballpark offers a safe space: The Nationals very rarely feature political VIPs on the in-stadium video screens, protecting them from the inevitable jeers.Its kind of a unifying force in the city when everything else around has crumbled,Ž said Davis, who worked with city officials to help get the ballpark built while he was in Congress.One Republican who can expect a warm embrace whenever he sets foot in the stadium is House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Loui-siana, who is still receiving physical therapy after he was critically wounded last year in a mass shooting. The gunman targeted GOP mem-bers who were practicing for the annual Congressional charity baseball game.Nationals Park really does hold a special place in my heart,Ž Scalise said.The ballpark provided two milestones in Scalises recovery. He threw out the first pitch at a playoff game last fall, and this spring he returned to the field to play in the Congressional game, recording an early putout at first base.Baseballs been a big motivator to help me keep in shape, first of all, and its really helped me to build strong relationships with people I otherwise wouldnt have gotten to know,Ž Scalise said.It really gave me an opportunity coming in as a new member of Congress to get to know a lot of colleagues, and ultimately to build a lot of real strong bridges on the Democratic side as well. Baseballs been a really unifying sport for us to get a healthy release from the daily pressures of being a member of Congress,Ž he said. ALL-STARFrom Page C1I knew that I had to play my best tennis against a champion like Serena,Ž said Kerber, the first German woman to win Wimbledon since Steffi Graff in 1996.She prevented Williams from claiming an eighth title at Wimbledon and 24th from all Grand Slam tournaments, which would have equaled Margaret Courts record.Williams gave birth only 10 months ago, then was treated for blood clots. She wore special compression leg-gings as a precaution during Wimbledon, just the fourth tournament of her comeback.After all the time away, Williams spoke about being impressed with herself for just reaching the final. She also wanted to win, of course.To all the moms out there, I was playing for you today „ and I tried,Ž said the 36-year-old American, her voice shaking during the trophy ceremony.Angelique played really well,Ž Williams said. She played out of her mind.ŽKerber made only five unforced errors the entire match, 19 fewer than Williams. Perhaps more impressive was this: She broke Williams in 4 of 9 ser-vice games.The 30-year-old German lost to Williams in the 2016 Wimbledon final. She beat Williams in the Australian Open final that year, then won that years U.S. Open to briefly replace her at No. 1 in the rankings.Kerber addressed Williams during the on-court interviews, saying: Youre such an inspiration for everybody, for all of us. Im sure you will have your next Grand Slam title soon. Im really, really sure.ŽThe final started more than two hours late, because they had to wait for the end of Novak Djokovics five-set victory over Rafael Nadal in a mens semifinal that was suspended the night before.Williams play was tight right from the outset.After taking the opening two points, she made four miscues in a row to get broken. That was part of a run in which she dropped 8 of 9 points. The American was mostly her own undoing, too: She was respon-sible for the finals initial six unforced errors. By the time the first set was over, the disparity was 14-3.Thats not going to work against an opponent of Kerbers quality.Trying to sneak a ball by Kerber is something akin to trying to put one past a brick wall. There are no holes.The left-hander scurried along the baseline, this way and that, using a combination of quickness and anticipa-tion to track down what often appeared to be winners for Williams but were not enough to end a point. Kerber would bend real low, even putting a knee right on the grass to get a ball back.And when she swung her racket, the measure was almost always true.Thats not to say Kerber is only about defending. She has added a more aggressive element to her game in recent years. That was on display Saturday when she delivered a pair of down-the-line forehand passing winners to collect the last break shed need, for a 4-2 edge in the second set.Soon enough, she was down on the grass, celebrating the moment and caking dirt on her white dress.It was such an amazing tournament for me. I was really happy to get this far,Ž Williams said. Its obviously disappointing, but I cant be disappointed. I have so much to look forward to. Im literally just getting started.Ž WIMBLEDONFrom Page C1 low on Friday following his big weeks in France and Ireland, but he slept like a kingŽ and enjoyed a huge breakfastŽ including his favorite Scottish bread. It clearly did the trick.On a day when Robert Rock „ the overnight leader by two shots on 13 under „ plunged down the field after a 76, Knox birdied five of his last 11 holes to find himself tied for eighth place and among the lead groups teeing off late on Sunday because of TV scheduling.That means he will miss the entire football World Cup final. Knox doesnt mind.Being in contention is more fun,Ž he said. Its a bit of a bummer but Im here to play golf.ŽRocks implosion „ he shot the worst round of the day, which included a triple-bogey 7 on No. 11 „ saw more than half the remaining field race past him.Dantorp, an unheralded Swede with just one top-10 finish in 61 starts on the Euro-pean Tour, birdied his final three holes to take the sole lead on 13 under.Behind him, Matt Fitzpatrick (64), Ryan Fox (63), Marcel Siem (65) and Scott Hend (63) were all among the earlier starters „ playing before the wind really started to pick up „ to reach 12 under. They were joined by Alexander Bjork (67) and Rickie Fowler (66), who drove 458 yards downwind on the 471-yard par-4 10th hole.

DEAR ABBY: We have three grandchildren and are due to make our annual visit. Two of the children are easy to plan for, and we have good relationships with them. The third is a 12-year-old boy with Down syndrome, and we struggle with how to deal with him -what to do and what to buy him. Any ideas? -UNSURE IN THE SOUTH DEAR UNSURE: The most important thing you can bring with you on your visit is a heart lled with love, and the determination that your grandson will know you love him. Spending oneon-one time together would make him feel special. Every child needs validation and affection on their journey toward adulthood. With the self-condence it brings, Down syndrome children can live full and happy lives. The questions you're asking me are ones your grandson's parents can answer for you. What he could use and various activities you can share should be easy questions for them to answer. I have printed a wonderful poem on this subject in my column before. It was written by Edna Massimilla, and I think it is timely. Edna is 102 now and still as energetic and "with it" as ever. Read on: HEAVEN'S VERY SPECIAL CHILD A meeting was held so far from Earth. It was the time for another birth. The Angels said to the Lord above -"This special child will need much love. "For progress may be very slow, "Accomplishment may never show. "This special child will need much care "From the people way down there. "This child may not talk, run or play, "And thoughts may seem so far away. "In many ways will not try to adapt "Known as 'disabled' and 'handicapped.' "Please be careful where this one is sent. "We want this child to be so content. "O please, Lord, find the parents who "Will do a very special job for You. "They will not realize right away "The leading role that they have to play. "But with this child sent from above "Comes stronger faith, and richer love. "Soon they'll know the privilege given "In caring for their gift from Heaven. "Their precious child, so meek and mild "Is Heaven's very special child." 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. How to play: Fill in the blank squares with the numbers 1 through 9 so that each horizontal row, vertical column and nine-square sub-grid contains no repeated numbers. Puzzles range in diculty from one to six stars. The solution to todays puzzle will be in tomorrows paper. YESTERDAYS SOLUTION BRIDGE HOROSCOPES TODAY IN HISTORY DIVERSIONS Love is the best present to give grandson with Down syndromeHAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR SUNDAY, JULY 15, 2018:This year you will learn how quickly your mood can change. Your unpredictability draws many people toward you. You will be unusually strong in brainstorming situations, as you easily can see both sides. Your nances will reect a change, as you will expand your budget. If you are single, your multidimensional personality attracts many suitors. You are likely to meet someone who seems perfectly suited to you. If you are attached, you often are the dominant party in the relationship. Be more nurturing. LEO knows how to spend money, and has great ideas for yours! ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) You are likely to get into a project that has been on the back burner for some time. You hear news that might stun you and give you pause to think. Perhaps the less said right now, the better. Be aware of what is happening around you. Use caution with money. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Others notice how happy you have become. You might nd it nearly impossible to slow down. Should you decide to stop for a while, a loved one will try his or her best to prevent you from cocooning. Look at the big picture. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) You could be dragging and somewhat tired. If you really are in such a mood, consider curling up with a good novel, or decide to watch a movie that you love. Take some downtime for yourself, and youll emerge feeling refreshed and energized. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) You have a light and easy way of handling matters that sometimes distresses others. You cannot change a situation, but you can move into a neutral head space. Your ability to stay carefree is the result of your past experiences. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) You might approach a challenging situation with more buoyancy than usual. On the other hand, you might prefer not to think about the problem. The unexpected occurs, which could change the very nature of the issue. Go for a walk, if need be. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Youll nally feel as if your efforts have paid off. Your feelings and thoughts now make their way into an important conversation. With your defenses down, you can see the big picture. Understanding will follow. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Deciding to cocoon for the day might be the right decision for you. Clearly, others do not agree, and are likely to express some surprisingly bad behavior. Still, hold your ground. You know when it is time to cast away from shore and take a time out. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You might have been coerced into playing a stronger role in a certain area of your life. Focus on the social aspects of this role, whether they include managing a little league team or getting friends together for a barbecue. Youll be happy with the outcome. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22DEC. 21) A surprise visit from a friend or acquaintance might catch you off guard. Embrace the spontaneity, and choose to go with the ow. Be prepared to hear an unusual request. Be good-natured, and follow through appropriately. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Reach out to a loved one at a distance. You could be surprised by this persons response. You might not want to do anything about what you are hearing, but you also could be attered. Remember, you are in command of your actions and words. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) You could be very busy, but keep in mind that you have made a commitment to a friend that needs to be handled. You will surprise others with how easily you deal with this situation. Think seriously about the implications of saying yes to a friend. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You step out the door and nd smiles greeting you left and right. You might be meeting friends for brunch or going off to do some shopping. Others seem most appreciative of you and your habits. Continue the spirit of the day by joining friends for some fun. PERK UP WITH HOME DELIVERY SUBSCRIBE TODAY! CALL 352-787-0600 OR VISIT DAILYCOMMERCIAL.COM TODAY IS SUNDAY, JULY 15, the 196th day of 2018. There are 169 days left in the year. TODAY'S HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY: On July 15, 1971, President Richard Nixon delivered a televised address in which he announced that he had accepted an invitation to visit the People's Republic of China. ON THIS DATE: In 1932 President Herbert Hoover announced he was slashing his own salary by 20 percent, from $75,000 to $60,000 a year; he also cut Cabinet members' salaries by 15 percent, from $15,000 to $12,750 a year. In 1964 Sen. Barry M. Goldwater of Arizona was nominated for president by the Republican national convention in San Francisco. In 1976 a 36-hour kidnap ordeal began for 26 schoolchildren and their bus driver as they were abducted near Chowchilla, California, by three gunmen and imprisoned in an underground cell. (The captives escaped unharmed; the kidnappers were caught.) In 1997 fashion designer Gianni Versace, 50, was shot dead outside his Miami Beach home; suspected gunman Andrew Phillip Cunanan, 27, was found dead eight days later, a suicide. (Investigators believed Cunanan killed four other people before Versace in a cross-country spree that began the previous March.) DailyCommercial.com | Sunday, July 15, 2018 C7

They had a purpose when they started in the 70s.Ž Zachary Rodriguez, Clermont You cant have one law that will do everything. Everything has to be weighed. You have to have someone who is openminded.ŽOtis Taylor, Clermont The biggest thing Id look for is transparency, people sticking to the rules, sticking to their word.Ž Tony Montellanico, Clermont Somebody that really cares about the environment. Not just a politician.Ž Mike Soriero, Clermont WORD ON THE STREET ADOPTIONS | E3LOOKING FOR A PET?Check out some of Lake Countys adoptable animals. When President Woodrow Wilson helped draft the Treaty of Versailles at the conclusion of World War I, he failed to include in his entourage a member of the opposing political party. Thus, when he introduced and tried valiantly to bring about a world organization that would ensure that the world would never again experience another tragedy such a world war, he was opposed. And a good idea was never to come to fruition because of partisanship. The United States never ratified the treaty or joined the League of Nations. President Wilson stumped the western states in support of the organization but, without bipartisan support, his efforts failed. Had the United States joined, would the League of Nations been successful in preventing World War II, the subsequent loss of millions of young lives and the destruction of nations? We will never know. But we do know that we must compromise sometimes to accomplish a good thing, or lose it altogether. As far back as Jefferson and Adams and Hamilton and Madison, our nations progress has been constricted by the idea that Republicans must oppose Democratic ideas and Democrats must oppose any Republican ideas … not based on merit but on politics. Eventually, with the politics were behind them, Jefferson and Adams became good friends. Today, we finally have The United Nations, but where the same kind of political pandering takes place between nations. To be clear, partisan means an unreasoning emotional adherence.Ž A good idea is a good idea, no matter who comes up with it or whether you are talking about families, unions, states or countries.

He remembers when State Road 50 went through Minneola and before U.S. Highway 27 was built. He said that one Christmas Eve in the 1940s when his family did not have much to eat, they went hunting in the area that surrounds the Citrus Tower. With a few dogs and on the lookout for the many rattlesnakes in the area, they caught a few raccoons and opossums. We got tired of hunting and went to sleep,Ž Jones said. When the sun came up it was Christmas Day „ and guess what we had for Christmas dinner.Ž In 1955, he went to Detroit to build cars, then to Schenectady, New York, for a while blacktopping roads, and to Nantucket, Massachusetts, as a house cleaner and restaurant worker before returning to Florida. After several jobs, including picking fruit and driving a truck, he was hired at the Citrus Tower in 1973. He said when he started working at the tower in its heyday, the restaurant would be full for breakfast and lunch, and it was difficult to just get through the parking lot with all the cars and buses. On the top floor of the tower, visitors were given free orange juice and could see the Gulf of Mexico on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other with coin-operated telescopes. On the ground, carts carrying 10 tourists each were driven around the groves, with a guide explaining the different orange varieties. There was an orange packing house and candy factory on site. There was also an area with alligators and a wrangler who put on a show for the tourists, and snakes behind glass that might strike at visitors as they walked by. Jones was hired first to pick oranges for the packing house, and later his job turned into maintenance, keeping the grounds manicured and the gift shop and restaurant area of the tower clean. He said he still occasionally goes to some of the upper areas of the tower to clean. He said that one night in the early 1990s when he was living on the Citrus Tower property, he was locked in his room by robbers who stole the vault with all the money and lottery tickets. The robbers were tracked down several months later in Winter Park. Jones got married to his girlfriend of seven years this February, and spends spare time fishing and singing in the choirs for the New Jacobs Chapel in Clermont and the Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Apopka. He works three halfdays a week now, and has no plans on stopping. The work keeps me going.ŽLongtime loyalty,Mack Jones, 85, left, and Citrus Tower owner Greg Holman stand by a photo of the Citrus Tower in Clermont. Jones has worked at the Citrus Tower for 45 years. After several jobs, including picking fruit and driving a truck, Mack Jones was hired at the Citrus Tower in 1973. [DAILY COMMERCIAL] WITH A VIEW

PET ADOPTIONS € HUMANE SOCIETY OF LAKE COUNTYOnline: To see more adoptable animals, visit humanelake.com By Rick ReedCorrespondentMinneola was situated on Palatlakaha Lake, 25 miles southeast of Sumterville, the county seat, and 8 miles south of Joyners wharf (on Lake Harris), the shipping point,Ž according to The South Publishing Companys Florida State Gazetteer and Business Directory of 1886-87. William Kennedys "History of Lake County" states that the areas “ rst pioneer was Capt. William A. Smith, who came from Georgia. According to Kennedy, Smith located on the north shore of Cow House LakeŽ some years after the Civil War. The post of“ ce was established in Minneola on Feb. 15, 1883, by George W. Hull in his house, according to Kennedys history. Hull is also credited to changing the name of Palatlakaha Lake to Lake Minneola around 1884, according to Walter Simes history of Lake County Lakes, which was published in 1995. € € € A timeline of Lady Lakes earliest days was mentioned in Webbs Historical, Industrial and Biographical Florida, which was published in 1885 by Wanton S. Webb. November 1, 1883, there was no population but one negro family,Ž noted Webb. December 1 of same year, one store and seven or eight people; September 1, 1884, 150 population, three stores, and two hotels.Ž Webb also noted that a stageline ran to Brooksville and Tampa, and that the time to Jacksonville was 7.5 hours. By 1885, the Methodist and Baptist churches had been established, and J. T. Biles was the postmaster as well as being unof“ cial director of the local chamber. Mr. J.T. Biles is the postmaster, and will be pleased to answer all letters addressed to him for information in regard to land, etc.,Ž wrote Webb. Biles was also the local grocer by 1886, according to the Gazetteer. Lady Lake also had a trio of general merchandise stores, one owned by William H. House, one by B.D. Martin and the other by Vaughn & Bro. A historic photo shows Minneola Drive. [SUBMITTED] LAKE COUNTY HISTORY DID YOU KNOW?

E4 Sunday, July 15, 2018 | DailyCommercial.combut I remember when my dad was president of the local CIO (Congress of Industrial Organizations), and a member of a union came to him for help after he had been fired for coming to work drunk. He thought my dad should help him keep his job because he was his union representative. Daddy saw both sides and told the man that he had endangered himself and others by coming to work drunk and deserved to be fired. He applied the same kind of reasoning as a volunteer fire chief and member of the school board. I think his cool and unprejudiced logic is what made him so much in demand for public office. Daddy was a big fish in a little pondŽ kind of guy, but he had the right idea. I learned my logical way of thinking from him. We have many problems facing our country and our world today. We see sinkholes forming under our roads and homes. We see our beautiful and freeflowing springs here in Florida clogged with algae. Whether we want to acknowledge it or not, we are growing too fast for our water supply, and we are going to regret it. Any good ideas that are presented to our representatives will be subject to partisanship. Our school system in Florida is struggling with the protection of our children from mad men with automatic weapons. Are we going to solve this problem, or are we going to pander to moneyed interests and gun lobbies who want to keep the status quo where gun laws are concerned? Im sure that those who love their guns dont want our school children in danger, so what is preventing us from making laws to protect them? Could it be political partisanship? I have to laugh when I think about my sister Jean and her concern for the underdog. If she thought any child in our neighborhood was being mistreated or left out for unfair reasons, she became their best friend and champion. This sometimes got her in trouble. We had a family on our street that seemed to be even poorer than most of us, and the children were somewhat neglected. When one of the girls got scarlet fever, the family was supposed to be quarantined. The parents ignored the order and allowed the children to freely play outdoors. Everyone but Jeanie stayed away from them. A few weeks later she was diagnosed with scarlet fever and we were quarantined. Jeans propensity for championing the underdog without prejudice wasnt always wise, but we were proud of her anyway. Wouldnt it be an improvement if our politicians would always consider the value of a bill to their constituents when they vote instead of what political party proposed it?

This is a replic a of the original ” own by Lowell Bayles to win the Thompson Trophy Pylon Race of 1931. [PHOTOS BY TED LUEBBERS/SUBMITTED] By Ted LuebbersEAA Chapter 534POLK CITY „ I thought my wife Joan would enjoy taking me to visit Kermit Weeks' Fantasy of Flight aircraft museum in Polk City as a Fathers Day treat. I consider myself lucky that she seems as eager to visit airplane museums as I do. Well, maybe a little bit less. But we are both members of the Experimental Aircraft Association, chapter 534, in Leesburg, which shows that her interest in aviation is above average. This was not my first visit, but I had not been there for about six years. I wondered what changes had been or were being made at the museum. I was aware that Weeks closed it about four years ago, in preparation for some major modifications. For now, it has reopened with a smaller number of aircraft on display in what used to be the maintenance hangar. But I learned that as times goes on, this venue will be bigger and better than ever, with more emphasis on entertainment for everyone, as well as full display of Weeks' 200plus vintage aircraft. The new Fantasy of Flight will feature several new hangars and a seaplane base on the lakefront to resemble an old Pan Am Clipper base. These new structures and layout are being designed by the same person who designed Universal Studios in Orlando. This should be something quite exciting to experience when it's finished in three to four years. If you decide to make a visit to Fantasy of Flight, be sure to gowww. fantasyofflight.com and check the schedule.

By Jay Bobbin Zap2itThe first two seasons of Wynonna EarpŽ gave title star Melanie Scrofano a wild ride, and shes holding on eagerly as Season 3 begins. The comic-book-inspired Syfy merging of Western traditions and the supernatural returns Friday, July 20 (with a sneak peekŽ Monday, July 16). Scrofano continues as legendary lawman Wyatt Earps great-great-grand daughter, whose relationship with the now-eternal Doc Hol liday (Tim Rozon) has produced a child „ but one from whom Wynonna is separated, for daughter Alices safety. The plot has great resonance for Scrofano, now a parent herself; she filmed Season 2 while pregnant. Once you become a mother, you sort of see everything through those eyes,Ž the friendly actress confirms. At the end of Season 2, Wynonna was reunited with her mother (now played by veteran talent Megan Fol lows) ... and once you become a parent, you are equal to your own parent. Youre on the same level as human beings, so it opens a whole other dimension for being in this world.Ž With singer-songwriter Jann Arden (InsensitiveŽ) also joining the cast, the Emily Andras-developed Wynonna EarpŽ has gotten high marks for its inclusiveness, encompassing the same-sex relationship of Wynonnas sister Waverly (Dominique Provost-Chalkley). Nobody ever said, OK, heres who were going to go after, Ž Scrofano reflects. We were just making a show about this world and these people, but I think what it really comes down to is that it feels fresh.Ž TVWEEKCONVERSION CHART Cable Development Corp.Friendship CableSumter Co.Friendship CableLake Co.
