But jurors agreed Tuesday the 64-year-old was guilty of murder.By Amy TaxinThe Associated PressSANTA ANA, Calif. „ Wet and muddy from their trek across the Mexican border, immigrant children say they sat or lay on the cold, con-crete floor of the immigration holding centers where they were taken.It was hard to sleep with lights shining all night and guards kicking their feet, they say. They were hungry, after being given what they say were frozen sandwiches and smelly food.Younger children cried in caged areas where they were crammed in with teens, and they clamored for their parents. Toilets were filthy, and running water was scarce, they say. They waited, unsure and frightened of what the future might bring.I didnt know where my mother was,Ž said Griselda, 16, of Guatemala, who entered the U.S. with her mother in the McAllen, Texas, area. I saw girls ask where their mothers were, but the guards would not tell them.ŽThe childrens descriptions of various facilities are part of a voluminous and at times scathing report filed in federal court this week in Los Angeles in a case over whether the Trump administration is meeting its obligations under a long-standing settlement governing how young immigrants should be treated in custody.Dozens of volunteer lawyers, interpreters and other legal workers fanned out across the Southwest in June and July to interview more than 200 immigrant parents and children in holding facili-ties, detention centers and a youth shelter.Advocates said the government isnt complying with the decades-old Flores agreement, which lays out detention conditions and release requirements for immigrant children.They have spoken out loud and clear, and what theyve said is they are experiencing enforced hunger, enforced dehydration, enforced sleep-lessness,Ž said Peter Schey, an attorney for the children who has asked the court to appoint a special monitor to enforce the agreement. They are ter-rorized, and I think it is time for the courts and the public to hear their voices.ŽThe Department of Homeland Security, which oversees immigration and border enforcement, did not immediately comment. But in their own reports to the court last month, government mon-itors said that immigration authorities were complying with the conditions laid out in the settlement.In his report, Henry Moak Jr., juvenile coordinator for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, documented the air temperature as appropriate at a number of border facilities and said he drank the water himself from five-gallon con-tainers at a processing center in McAllen.He said some children and parents told him they disliked the food and werent sure the water was drinkable, but there were no allegations the food was spoiled. At the Yuma station in Ari-zona, he said he tried the water there, too, and, I can confirm the water fountains worked and the water tasted clean.ŽThe litany of complaints compiled by advocates comes after a global outcry drove the Trump administration to stop separating immigrant fami-lies at the border. Authorities are now reuniting parents and children under a sepa-rate court order and said they will seek to detain families together during their immigration proceedings, though under the Flores agreement immigrant children are gen-erally supposed to be released from custody in about 20 days.Many of the children described conditions in U.S. Customs and Border Protec-tion facilities where they were taken and processed in the initial days after crossing the border. They were identified in the reports solely by their first names.Timofei, a 15-year-old from Russia who sought asylum at the border with his parents over their beliefs as Jehovahs Witnesses, said night and day blended together in the locked, crowded room where he was held with other boys. It had a single window over-looking an empty corridor, he said. He said there was no soap in the bathroom, and he only sometimes got a single-use toothbrush.He said he was offered a shower upon arriving at the San Ysidro, California, facility but didnt take one and wasnt allowed one on his second or third day there.Some children were later sent to the Casa Padre shel-ter in Texas for immigrant children who were traveling alone or were separated from their parents. The facility operates under a contract with the Department of Health and Human Services. There, teenage boys described going hungry and not being given enough time to speak with their parents by phone.Kenneth Wolfe, a spokesman for HHSs Administration for Children and Families, said the agency wouldnt comment on specific cases but if a con-tractor doesnt comply with agency procedures, the issue is addressed.Also in Texas, Keylin, a 16-year-old girl from Hon-duras, said she traveled north with her mother after her mothers life was threat-ened in their homeland. The pair turned themselves in at the border near McAllen and were taken to a facility she called the ice boxŽ because it was so cold.I didnt know where my mother wasImmigrant children describe hunger and cold in detentionA Brazilian mother, who asked to be identi“ ed only as W.R. holds the hand of her 9-year-old son A.R. during a news conference Monday at the Brazilian Worker Center in Boston.

She was denied bond on Monday.Gabriela Perero told investigators shed become enraged after learning that her siblings would receive an inheritance and she would not, even though shed been taking care of their mother, the SunSentinel reported.According to an arrest report, Perero told her mother, You destroyed my life, so Im going to destroy you.Ž Perero told detectives she pushed her mother to the floor on July 12, grabbed her by the arms and ripped her skin off.Ž She said she also grabbed the womans neck with both hands and squeezed, the report said.Then she cleaned her mother up, put her in bed and called 911, the report said.

[PHOTO BY JOE DIORIO, COURTESY OF HARTLEY / DE RENZO THOROUGHBREDS] Ocalas $16M stallion dies without ever winning a raceBy Carlos E. MedinaGatehouse MediaOCALA „ The bittersweet story of The Green Monkey came to an end when the 14-year-old thoroughbred stallion died quietly in Ocala due to laminitis, a painful disease of the hoof.His recent death closed one of the most high-flying chapters in the thorough-bred industry, which saw the colt „ born and raised in Marion County „ bring a world-record price of $16 million at auction.If youve never heard of him, its because he never won a race in his short career. His story illustrates how triumph can quickly turn to heartache in the thoroughbred game.In 2006, the 2-yearold colt left purveyors of horse flesh gaga at the Fasig-Tipton auction in South Florida. He was big, strong, ran like the wind and did it with a grace and ease that took their breath away. Just before the sale, he posted a record workout „ known as a breeze „ at Calder Race Course when he covered an eighth of a mile in 9.8 seconds.What came next was a bidding war unlike any seen before or since.It was amazing how many people wanted that horse after he breezed and the way he did it. It was really surreal,Ž said Dean DeRenzo, who, along with business partner Randy Hartley, sold the colt.It was Feb. 28, 2006, and the mood around the sales ring was electric, recalled current Ocala Breeders Sales President Tom Ventura, who was there.It was just an amazing thing to watch. You could feel it in the crowd. Everyone was focused on the auction ring,Ž Ventura said.The bidding opened at $500,000. A few minutes later it approached $12 million. The bidding came down to two men, John Ferguson and Demi OByrne, who each sat behind the auctioneer, on opposites sides of him. The auctioneer alternately craned his neck in one or the others direction after each bid, seeking personal conformation of an increase rather than rely-ing on bid spotters.At each successive million-dollar mark, the crowd gasped.Ferguson and OByrne were the public faces for two of the richest thoroughbred breeders in the world.Ferguson represented Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, owner Bittersweet horse tale See SCOTT, A4 See BRIEFS, A4 See TALE, A4 See PIER, A4


A4 Wednesday, July 18, 2018 | Funeral Services Ethel L. Miles, 97, of Leesburg, Florida passed away on Sunday, June 24, 2018, while under the care of hospice. She was born in Watertown, Wisconsin to the late Tekla and Arthur Neumann. Ethel retired to Florida, enjoyed playing golf and was quite talented as a watercolor artist. She was a member of Morrison United Methodist Church in Leesburg and was a volunteer for many charitable organizations. She was also a member of P.E.O.

Arrangements under the care of PageTheus Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Leesburg.Ethel L. Miles Thomas RyanThomas Ryan, 91 of Leesburg, Florida died Monday, July 16, 2018. Arrangements by Harden/ Pauli Funeral Home, Eustis of Darley Stud, Darley Sta-bles, leading partner in the familys Godolphin Stables and host of the annual Dubai World Cup racing festival, the worlds richest. Also, the ruler of Dubai, vice president and prime minster of the United Arab Emirates and a multi-billionaire involved in a myriad of busi-nesses from airlines, ports and construction.OByrne was point man for John Magniers Coolmore Stud. Magnier built his fortune through Cool-more and parlayed that into investments in a wide vari-ety of industries. He also is a multi-billionaire. Many of his auction purchases are in the name of his wife, Susan, and his business partners.Back in the sale ring, the auctioneer was looking at OByrne: $16 million?Ž he asked. OByrne nodded, Yes.Ž It was Fergusons turn. He declined. The hammer fell and the crowd erupted in applause.Amid the celebration and handshakes OByrne reportedly said to DeRenzo: Hed better be good.Ž The real storyThe sports world is full of what-could-have-been stories. But in the thoroughbred industry, The Green Monkey became the biggest bust in the game.DeRenzo bristles at that infamy, mostly because most people do not know the truth behind the fail-ure to launch.Most expected the colt to run as a 2-year-old. But, soon, word came that his debut would not come until his 3-year-old season due to a nagging gluteal injury. The truth was much worse.Not long after the big sale, The Green Monkey went to Churchill Downs in Kentucky, where he started to train for his racing debut. One day, he broke free of his stall and bolted.He got loose, fell head-over-heels and broke several vertebrae in his neck,Ž DeRenzo said. They tried to get him healed up, but physically couldnt. Up until the day he died he could hardly move his head up or down or side to side.ŽKnowing the true nature of The Green Monkeys injury and having it cloaked in secret made the stories of his struggles sting worse. Coming homeIn 2008, The Green Monkey came back to Marion County and to Hartley/DeRenzo Thoroughbreds, where he stood as a stallion for the rest of his life.His stallion career was never stellar. His perceived failure at the track made him less attractive and some openly mocked him, calling him The Green Donkey.ŽDespite it all, the stallion lived out his life in comfort, surrounded by attention.He was a good boy. He had a lot of visitors. A lot of fans would stop by the farm to see him and to take pictures with himŽ DeRenzo said. Kids would write him and ask ques-tions about him.ŽHis remains were cre-mated and are buried near the stallion barn. And for DeRenzo, no matter what anyone says, for a time The Green Monkey was the best anyone ever saw.As far as were concerned he is a champion and he proved himself. Everybody wanted him. Theres no way the whole world could want him and everybody be wrong about him,Ž he said.

But as recently as Monday, Scott said he plays no role in deciding how his money is invested.I put all my assets in a blind trust, so I dont know how they invested the dollars,Ž Scott told reporters following a campaign event in St. Petersburg.Don Hinkle, a Tallahassee lawyer and major Democratic fundraiser, disputes that and told the 1st District Court of Appeal that the state constitution requires full and fair disclosureŽ by public officials, a provision approved in 1976 by voters as part of the states Sunshine Laws.You cant just say I have an account, or I have a trust, without dis-closing whats in the trust ƒ This applies to every officeholder, not just the governor,Ž Hinkle told the court.Leon County Circuit Judge Karen Gievers ear-lier this year refused to dismiss Hinkles lawsuit and the governor appealed, leading to Tuesdays hearing. It was unclear when the 1st DCA would rule.The states blind trust law was created in 2013, largely for Scott, who saw it as a way to avoid allegations that his holdings allowed him to profit from public policies enacted while in office.Scott doesnt take a salary as governor, flies his own aircraft to state and campaign events and has spent $86 million of his familys money in winning two elections as governor.Hinkles lawsuit also claims that Scott controls a family trust with his wife, Ann, but has failed to disclose all of its assets.Hinkles is the third lawsuit filed involving Scotts use of the blind trust „ with courts rejecting the earlier two on similar jurisdictional grounds as those cited by Nordby on Tuesday.The issue now also could be overtaken by events, since in challenging Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, Scott now faces a July 29 deadline to file a federal disclosure requir-ing he reveal his wifes assets along with his own detailed holdings.Nelson filed his disclosure on the May 15 deadline, but Scott asked for „ and was given „ an extension. SCOTTFrom Page A3to fish and converse.Locals such as Dennis the Rocket S cientist (he really was one), Stanley from Jersey, Bob the Chick Magnet and Rick-a-Pedia (because he knew everything) were fixtures. Rick was unofficial Pier Mayor and they often wore T-shirts that said Solving the Worlds Problems One Beer at a Time.ŽThe official mayor of Anna Maria Island is Dan Murphy. He said now that the restaurant and bait shop are no longer affixed to the T-shaped pier, the loss is hitting closer to the heart.Its depressing actually,Ž Murphy said. I hate to admit that, but its depressing to look out there and its not there.ŽThe structure was built in 1911 and was destroyed by Hurricane Irma in what was perhaps the most sig-nificant storm loss in the area. Along with Snooty the Manatee, the pier was one of the biggest attrac-tions in Manatee County, and both were unexpectedly lost within two months of each other. Snooty drowned on July 23 while the pier was severely damaged by high winds on Sept. 10 and city officials soon declared it unsalvageable.Speeler & Associates, a St. Petersburg company, are handling the bulk of the demolition process and excavation equipment on barges can be seen in the back of the pier where the restaurant and bait shop formerly stood.The entire demolition process is expected to be completed in the first week of August, sooner than originally planned. Now that the restaurant and bait shop are gone, removal of the planks and pilings will begin at the end of the week, Murphy said.The city received two bids for the piers construction „ Speeler & Associates as well as a company from Tampa „ and Murphy plans to bring a recommendation to the city commission on July 26 and a request to negotiate with the winner.Murphy said the city is hopeful of requiring a con-struction permit from the Army Corps of Engineers by the end of next month.I think it will all tie together,Ž he said. Everything should be fine. Were in good shape.ŽThe new pier is expected to be completed in December of 2019, with the character and charm of the old pier retained, though apparently not everyone is happy with the way it will look.Last week, according to Murphy, a person took a box cutter and destroyed two artists renditions of the new pier that were on display at the site.Murphy said before the incident took place the culprit looked into a security camera before be began to vandalize the drawings.

A6 Wednesday, July 18, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comTrumps embrace of Putin and the EUs Asian outreach highlight the yawning rift, widening more by the day, in a trans-Atlantic unity that has been the bedrock of international politics for the better part of a century, as countless graves of U.S. soldiers buried in European soil bear witness to.Trumps abrasiveness and America FirstŽ insis-tence had been a given even before he became president. Europes increasing resignation to letting go of the cherished link to the White House is much more recent.After last weeks brutal NATO summit where Trump derided Europeans as freeloaders, EU chief Donald Tusk spoke on Tuesday of the increasing darkness of international politics.ŽThis Helsinki summit is above all another wake-up call for Europe,Ž said Man-fred Weber, the German leader of the EPP center-right group in the European Parliament, the legislatures biggest.We Europeans must take our fate in our own hands.ŽIt was a startling sentiment coming from someone who hails from the same German Christian Democrat stock as Angela Merkel, Helmut Kohl and Konrad Adenauer, staunch supporters of the transAtlantic link over the past three-quarters century.There have been other signs of the growing European detachment from the White House, especially after Trump pulled out of the global climate agreement and the Iran nuclear deal the EU brokered. RELATIONSFrom Page A1while she was free on bond because she did not move into a safe, stable place. I assume it was because of your behavior.ŽHe ordered her to get a job, drug treatment and mental health counsel-ing and not to break any laws. He also told her to pay back $4,171 from the stolen card. He said he had almost no certainty that anything other than incarcera-tionŽ would change her drug-addicted lifestyle. He conceded, however, that she might change. Im constantly surprised.ŽNaffzigers family was disappointed that she wasnt sentenced to prison. They told the Daily Commercial that she was diagnosed as bipolar at age 11, would run away from home, take drugs and accept no responsibility for her actions.I dont think youve ever had that inner meeting with yourself that says, Im going to go down a different path. Youve been on that path for a long time,Ž Briggs told her.Naffziger, who was living in Wildwood, went to the Sumter County probation office for her regularly sched-uled monthly meeting on July 3. While there, probation officials ordered her to take a random urine drug screen test.ƒshe was found to have a device/object hidden within her vagi-nal cavity. Officer (Joyce) Bradshaw instructed that offender stand up and pull out the objectƒ and place [it] into the small, clear plastic cup. The offender admitted she has been using methamphetamines since 06-28-18ƒ.ŽShe has been placed on Circuit Judge Lawrence Sementos Aug. 6 felony arraignment docket.She is being held with no bond in the Lake County jail.Jurors spared Mariotti from the death penalty by one vote after hear-ing defense testimony about a wildly dysfunc-tional childhood and a lifetime of drug abuse. SLAYINGFrom Page A127 hours of recrimination by delivering a rare admission of error.The sentence should have been, I dont see any reason why I wouldnt, or why it wouldnt be RussiaŽ instead of why it would,Ž Trump said of the comments he had made standing alongside Vladimir Putin on Mon-days summit stage in Helsinki.That didnt explain why Trump, who had tweeted a half-dozen times and sat for two television interviews since the Putin news con-ference, waited so long to correct his remarks. And the scripted cleanup pertained only to the least defensible of his comments.He didnt reverse other statements in which he gave clear credence to Putins extremely strong and powerfulŽ denial of Russian involvement, raised doubts about his own intelligence agencies conclusions and advanced discredited conspiracy theories about election meddling.He also accused past American leaders, rather than Russias destabiliz-ing actions in the U.S. and around the world, for the souring of relations between two countries. And he did not address his other problematic statements during a week-long Europe tour, in which he sent the NATO alliance into emergency session and assailed British Prime Minister Theresa May as she was hosting him for an official visit.I accept our intelligence communitys conclusion that Russias meddling in the 2016 election took place,Ž Trump conceded Tuesday. But even then he made a point of adding, It could be other people also. A lot of people out there. There was no col-lusion at all.ŽMoments earlier, McConnell felt the need to reassure Americas allies in Europe with whom Trump clashed during his frenzied trip last week.With no ifs or buts, the GOP leader declared, The European countries are our friends, and the Russians are not.ŽSenate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said Trump was trying to squirm awayŽ from his comments alongside Putin. Its 24 hours too late and in the wrong place,Ž he said. TRUMPFrom Page A1mural in place, a federal lawsuit had been brought against the city by attor-ney Jeremy Talcott of the Californiabased Pacific Legal Foundation on behalf of Nemhauser and Jastrzebski.Before Tuesdays vote, council members made no comments about the settlement but a couple of residents spoke in favor of the mural.Josh Napalous even praised the city for doing the right thing,Ž before urging them to be more progressive in their think-ing and embrace such public art like other cities have done nationwide.If Mount Dora claims to be this artistic spot, why not embrace the arts and a little bit of something dif-ferent? A lot of people here in town that live here like to celebrate these types of diversities and artistic expression. They want to see more of it honestly,Ž he said.The dispute erupted in mid-2017 when Nemhauser and Jastrzebski commissioned artist Rich-ard Barrenechea to paint a drab masonry wall in front of their home on Old U.S. Highway 441 near downtown. The city at first classified the Starry NightŽ mural as graffiti and cited the couple, but later decided the painting constituted an illegal sign. The homeowners directed Barrenechea to carry the Starry NightŽ theme over to their house after city officials reportedly told them the masonry wall had to match the house.The city asked the homeowners paint the wall and house a traditional color and after the couple refused, City Magistrate David Tegeler imposed a $100-a-day fine for each day the mural remained, but capped it at 31 days for a total of $3,100.The fines were later re-implemented and a lien was placed on the property.In response, the couple sued the city in state court, but then dropped it to refile the case as a federal law-suit. In February, a federal judge granted a restraining order temporarily block-ing the city from imposing additional fines on the house. By that time how-ever, the fines had accrued to well over $10,000.We are just happy this whole thing can finally be put behind us,Ž Nem-hauser said Tuesday.According to the settlement agreement, the homeowners get to keep the mural and have 180 days to get it completed and sealed to protect it from the elements. After that, they must maintain it.The homeowners will also be paid $15,000 for legal fees and the lien against the property will be lifted. If the house is sold or put in someone elses name, the mural will remain grandfathered inŽ despite future codes the city may implement.The homeowners, in turn, will drop the federal suit against the city and sign a release that they can never sue for anything related to the mural or actions the city had taken against them.The city must also revise its sign ordinance to make it clearer for residents with the help of a Special Code Advisory Committee the city must form. The agree-ment also specifies that if Nemhauser is interested and applies for a seat on the committee, she must be appointed.Additionally, the agree-ment calls for a joint press conference between the city and homeowners, at which time Mayor Nick Girone must apologize to the property owners on behalf of the city.The press conference is scheduled for today at 12:30 p.m.Overall, Talcott said he hopes the city takes the opportunity to revise their sign code to the point that it is constitutional.He said the code is con-tent based and gives city officials too much author-ity to pick and chooseŽ what they do and dont like and too broad and vague in the sense that almost anything on a persons property can be classified as a sign, two points that violate peoples first and 14th amendment rights.The big principle here is if youre going to prohibit conduct or speech, you need to write laws that are clear,Ž Talcott said.

PAGE 7 | Wednesday, July 18, 2018 A7 Americans often complain about our do-nothingŽ or dysfunctionalŽ Congress. But Congress does need to act, and soon, on one issue with some pending unwelcome cons equences „ flood insurance.Without action, the National Flood Insurance Program, or NFIP, the federal governments backstop for 5 million poten-tially water-logged property owners across America, will expire on July 31. This is an especially acute problem for Florid-ians. More than one-third of the governments flood-insurance policyholders „ some 1.76 million „ live in Florida.Many throughout Florida might be tempted to relax, believ-ing this is a problem for our coastal friends concerned about storm surge from hurricanes and rising seas. Yet we must not be lulled into thinking we are not affected because we are so far inland.FEMA says a lapse in the program might not necessarily affect claims. But that would stop the government from issu-ing new policies or renewals across the country. The agency indicates as many as 40,000 home-sale closings a month could halt if such policies cannot be issued. Florida would likely fare worse than other places because our state is the main NFIP market.Congress has legislation to deal with this before the program lapses. The Senate version of the new farm bill that passed last month contains a provision by Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., that would extend the program for six months. Kennedy also has filed a stand-alone bill with similar language. But it doesnt appear the House is ready to consider either. Meanwhile, the House has passed a bill by Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wis., called the 21st Century Flood Reform Act. That mea-sure would extend the program through September 2022 and, more importantly, expand the role of private insurers in the market. The Senate, however, has not taken up that bill.Right now, the government pays private insurers to market, sell and write flood policies and process claims. But companies do little of the actual underwriting. For instance, according to a recent Congressional Research Service analysis, private insur-ers aim for commercial and other big-dollar properties whose high premiums help justify their risk. Thus, private insurers hold $589 million of the market, compared to the governments $3.5 billion portfolio.Many in Congress advocate boosting private insurers share of this market, because the NFIP is running into major fiscal problems and needs reform to relieve taxpayers.In theory, the 50-year-old NFIP should be self-funding through policyholders premiums. But the government has had to dip deep into the treasury to cover the cost of overwhelming claims related to recent catastrophic floods. The NFIP still owes more than $20 billion to the taxpayers at large. Additionally, federal law mandates the government to subsidize premiums for certain policyholders, and about 20 percent qualify, many of whom reside in wealthy coastal areas.Congress first order of business should be to ensure the NFIP doesnt falter. So lawmakers must extend the program by the end of the month.Beyond that, this system clearly needs long-term reform, chief among which would be to introduce private insurers into the market.Its time our do-nothing Congress did something to fix flood insurance.OUR OPINIONFlood insurance program sinking ANOTHER OPINION Timothy Trybus belligerence speaks for itself. In a video that has gone viral, the 62-yearold man coarsely chides a young woman named Mia Irizarry for wearing a shirt with the Puerto Rican flag on it. He strides up to her, stabbing the air with his finger as he shouts: You should not be wearing this in the United States of America!Ž A few yards away, a Cook County Forest Preserve District police officer nonchalantly stands at the edge of the pavilion where the confrontation takes place, at Caldwell Woods Forest Preserve on Chicagos Northwest Side. Irizarry calmly explains to Trybus that she has a right to wear the shirt, and has a permit to occupy the pavilion. She calmly tells Trybus that she feels uncomfortable as he draws near to her. And she calmly asks the officer to intervene, which the officer doesnt. Trybus has been charged with assault and disorderly conduct. The officer, identified by Cook County authorities as Patrick Connor, was placed under investigation for his handling of the incident and placed on desk duty. Later, he resigned. And Irizarry, who unwittingly found herself in the predicament of all those who are judged, or dismissed, or insulted because of their appearance? Shes a living lesson to us all on how to handle confrontation. YouTube teems with videos of scenes rife with confrontation and discrimination. In such tense moments, each of us copes in his or her own way. Some people freeze, others ignite with rage. Sometimes those scenes explode into violence. Confronted at the pavilion, Irizarry did neither. File her remarkable reaction in the folder marked poise under pressure.Ž Back to the video: Why are you wearing that?Ž Trybus aggressively asks. Because I can,Ž she answers, reminding him that Puerto Rico is part of the United States.Ž Trybus keeps belittling her, challenging her. Youre not going to change us. Do you know that?Ž he tells her. Im not trying to change anyone,Ž she replies. I just came here for a birthday party.Ž In a measured tone, Irizarry lets Connor know she could use some help. Officer, Im renting this area and hes harassing me about the shirt Im wearing,Ž she tells the officer. I do not feel comfortable with him here. Is there anything you can do?Ž Not much, evidently. After other officers arrived, the episode ended peacefully. But reaction to the video of the June 14 incident has been swift and strong since it went viral this week. Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello said in tweets that he was appalled, shocked & disturbed,Ž by what happened, and demanded that this officer be expelled from the police force. State Sen. Iris Martinez, a Chicago Democrat, also called it inexcusable that a peace officer ... would ignore a call for help from someone feeling threatened, no matter their race.Ž Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle apologized to the young woman for the incident, adding she was troubledŽ by Connors initial response. Most attention thus far has focused on the hostile loudmouth and the lackadaisical officer. A court will decide Trybus fate, and all of us await the outcome of the forest preserve districts investigation into Connors actions. A video sometimes isnt the full story, but we see nothing in this recording that even begins to excuse either mans behavior. But we dont want this saga to settle into questions of crime and punishment without a celebration of Mia Irizarry. So many times in this metropolis, serious disrespect provokes escalation, retaliation, even combat. Instead, her level-headed response kept an already ugly episode from becoming worse. Lets all remember that. From Tribune News Service.ANOTHER OPINIONPraise for poise: When a loudmouth berates you for your T-shirt OPINIONSteve Skaggs | Publisher Tom McNiff | Executive Editor Whitney Lehnecker | Digital Editor, Lifestyles Editor Tom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 tom.mcniff@dailycommercial.comFBI agent Peter Strzoks testimony last week before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees reminded me of that old warhorse of college freshman composition, Politics and the English Language.Ž In 1946, British writer George Orwell connected the disorder of contemporary politics with the decay of clear, expressive language. Referring to politics, Orwell said, When the general atmosphere is bad, language must suffer.Ž But if bad politics undermines clear language, bad writing and speaking make good politics increasingly elusive. The English language, Orwell said, becomes ugly and inaccurate because our thoughts are foolish, but the slovenliness of our language makes it easier for us to have foolish thoughts.Ž In other words, imprecise language spawns imprecise thinking „ and vice versa. This premise was clearly reflected in the contentious testimony before the House committees. Strzok was accused by House Republicans of bias,Ž based on emails that Strzok exchanged with his mistress expressing his distaste for presidential candidate Donald Trump. When the emails came to light, Strzok was immediately dismissed from his role in special counsel Robert Muellers investigation. But House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said Strzoks dismissal was too late. The text and emails may have been discovered in May of 2017, but the bias existed and was manifest a year and a half before that. ... It wasnt the discovery of texts that got him fired, it was the bias manifest in those texts that made him unfit to objectively and dispassionately investigate.Ž Orwell would have objected to that sloppy and tendentious use of the word bias,Ž which nearly always has a negative connotation. Its definition includes the notion of prejudice or of a preconceived and unreasoned judgment. Strzoks late-night emails to his mistress were ill-advised, but theres no reason to think that his political perspective on a potential Trump presidency was prejudiced, preconceived or unreasonable. Indeed, many Americans shared Strzoks perspective at the time, and many to believe „ quite reasonably „ that Trump is a terrible and dangerous president. But perspective and opinion are not bias. If Strzok had allowed his political opinions to color his role in the investigation of the Clinton emails or Muellers Russia probe, that act could properly be described as biased. But Strzok contended, under oath, that he did not; the Department of Justice inspector generals inquiry reports that he did not; and Republicans have not presented evidence that he did. What Strzok is guilty of is having an opinion, and then using poor judgment in expressing his opinion to his mistress in writing. We might imagine the universe in which intelligent, informed, concerned people like Strzok could not possibly have an opinion about the wisdom of electing a man like Trump, but such a place is a fantasy. Even F.B.I. agents are citizens first and they have both a right and an obligation to have opinions about our countrys best interests. Its unrealistic to expect them to do otherwise. What we can expect „ and demand „ is that their political opinions have no impact on their commitment to the FBIs mission. And the evidence indicates that Strzoks opinions did not affect his investigative work. But the Republicans imprecise use of a term like biasŽ „ and the publics failure to demand more precision „ transforms the Strzok episode, which is a minor event in the larger Russian interference episode, into one of the Republicans main weapons in the campaign to discredit the Mueller investigation. And, indeed, it has received particular emphasis precisely because there are so few others. Orwell said, The great enemy of clear language is insincerity.Ž Thus President Trump often has trouble expressing himself clearly and often has to rely on reliable formulas and jargon. The other great enemy of clear language and good politics is the use of imprecise language to achieve a political end. The goal is confusion rather than clarity, and the result is uncritical thinking and an expanding cycle of more imprecise language. John M.

Appetizers include shrimp, two mac and cheese dishes, chicken wings, fried pickles or green beans, edamame and peel-and-eat shrimp. Sand-wiches include the Bay Street Bacon Jam Burger, with thick bacon and onion jam, and the chicken waffle sandwich, with fried chicken between Belgian waffles with maple syrup and bacon bits.Lea said the most popular dinner entree is the chicken piccata.

B2 Wednesday, July 18, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comis out for summer. Meal sites, typically located in parks, libraries and churches, offer breakfast, lunch, snacks or supper. To find a location, visit the site finder map, text FoodFLŽ to 877-877, or dial 2-1-1. Many of the locations serve breakfast and hot lunches during the week. Each location is run primarily by local volunteers, including civic and church organizations, or on a school campus accessible to the surrounding community where the need is greatest. I am so proud of Lake County Schools and the residents who have stepped up to either sponsor a meal site or volunteer at one. Most of the sites have organized, well-run activities that help keep the younger children and teens coming back day after day. They include arts and crafts, tutoring, mentoring, drama, sp orts, computer training, music, gardening, cooking, and reading programs. Many sites have enlisted local fire and police departments and businesses to make presentations or volunteer at the site. Once you find a location online, administrators ask that you call the chosen site to inform them that you have a child or children interested in receiving meals. Although making reservations by phone generally is not required, it is appreciated, and it helps the location to properly prepare and have enough food for everyone. I am sure that the adults will work out the pros and cons of free lunch for all. Meanwhile, I am celebrating the fact that no children will ever have to face lunch shaming for not having enough money in their account, and every child will have a good opportunity to learn each day, instead of sitting in class with an empty stomach.

PAGE 11 | Wednesday, July 18, 2018 B3I sometimes wonder whether peo ple who grew up in the city can really appreciate watermelon. You see, those of us lucky enough to grow up on a farm know that no watermelon can possibly taste as good as the one youve gone out to the field to select, then taken to the swimming hole and dumped it in. The idea is that by the time youre ready to come out of the water, youve worked up a ravenous appetite, and the melon is nice and cool. And if, as you cut into it, it splits with a cracking sound, you know youve chosen a real winner, a watermelon at the peak of perfection. Choosing a ripe watermelon can be a tricky business. My father and brothers believed in thumping the melon to determine whether it sounded hollow. If so, they knew it was ripe. If not, it needed to stay on the vine and soak up a few more days of sunshine and rain. But since Im partially tone-deaf and all melons sound alike to me, I usually followed my mothers system. She would check the bottom of the melon where it lay against the ground, and if it had a white or very pale yellow spot, she figured it was ready to eat. In later years, when I no longer had access to our very own watermelon patch, I discovered yet another method. During a church picnic, we all agreed that whoever had selected the watermelons had shown excellent judgment, and the conversation turned to a lively debate over the best method of choosing a good watermelon. Asked for my opinion, I admitted a woeful inability to discern the ripeness of supermarket melons. Several of the ladies said the best solution was to ask one of the store employees to choose. But one lady, who seemed to take the whole matter very seriously, drew me aside. Speaking very softly, she informed me that she had been taught to sort of lean her elbow against the melon under consideration, and if it makes sort of a cracking sound, its ripe.Ž That system worked very well for her. But there came a day when she zeroed in on a likely-looking candidate, glanced around to be sure no one was looking her way, and leaned. The watermelon made a loud cracking sound „ and split wide open. The incident was so embarrassing that she never leaned on another watermelon. Now I just do the sensible thing,Ž she assured me, and let someone else do the choosing.Ž Of course, in todays world, its easy enough to find pre-cut watermelon, sliced into wedges, or triangles, or cubed, so that its only a matter of checking for a dark, even color. And if you get it home and the flavor isnt up to your expectations, a sprinkling of salt helps bring out the sweetness. A good, vine-ripened watermelon is normally so sweet and flavorful that its hard to believe its really a low-calorie treat, with only 46 calories to a one-cup serving. That same one-cup serving is rich in both Vitamin C and Vitamin A and contains other nutrients that help support healthy hair, skin, and vision. So you can enjoy it without feeling guilty. Enjoy it alone, or use it in a salad with mango and bananas, drizzled with honey and sprinkled with sesame or poppy seed. And if summertime is your time for backyard barbecues, try tossing slices of watermelon on the grill; the heat caramelizes the sugars in the fruit. If youre a smoothies enthusiast, youll probably be inspired to try a watermelon smoothie. But dont be too heavyhanded. Remember that watermelon is 92 per cent water. It needs to be balanced with something to keep your smoothie nice and thick. Bananas are a good candidate for that. Except for the grilled watermelon, these are all cold. But Ill tell you a secret: The very best way to eat watermelon is perfectly ripe, fresh from the field, and still warm. Thats when you taste the flavor of sunshine. Mary Ryder is a food columnist for the Daily Commercial. Email her at POTWATCHERFor fully ripened avor, choose watermelon wiselyChoosing a ripe watermelon can be a tricky business,Ž writes Mary Ryder. My father and brothers believed in thumping the melon to determine whether it sounded hollow. If so, they knew it was ripe. If not, it needed to stay on the vine and soak up a few more days of sunshine and rain.Ž [GATEHOUSE MEDIA FILE] Mary Ryder


B4 Wednesday, July 18, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comBy Kristen HartkeThe Washington PostIm a plastic addict. I fill gallon-size ziptop freezer bags with tomato sauce bound for the freezer and snacksize bags with cashews bound for my purse. I stretch plastic wrap over a Key lime pie I plan to nibble on later. My husband, meanwhile, seems to pull off several feet of aluminum foil just to wrap a sliver of lime. I find these treasures littering the back of the refrigerator, looking like crumpled silver cat toys, and wonder why it was necessary to enshroud this bite of food instead of just, you know, eating it. I have also stumbled upon plastic sandwich bags filled with some slimy remnant I had tucked into the vegetable crisper months earlier, a bit of onion or half a blood orange I had meant to use. I recently decided Id had enough „ and probably the planet had, too. According to marine research organization Algalita, Americans throw out 185 pounds of plastic per person each year, and National Geographic reported in 2017 that just 9 percent of all plastic worldwide is recycled. The first plastic sandwich bags were introduced in 1957, well before I was born, meaning that I honestly dont know what its like to live without them. Im actually a bit of a reduce/reuse/recycle weirdo. One of those plastic gallon bags in my freezer is kept filled with kitchen scraps that I regularly turn into vegetable broth. I compost my garden waste, own Tupperware that may date to the Clinton presidency and even adopted my grandmothers Depression-era habit of turning remnants of bar soap into liquid soap. Im not bad at recycling, but my plastic addiction seemed unseemly, while I suspect my husband thought his foil affinity was more environmentally friendly. The truth is, both plastic bags and aluminum foil can be recycled (but only if you live somewhere that offers recycling for those specific products), and they can biodegrade in landfills (although that could take anywhere from 50 to hundreds of years). According to a study published last year in the journal Science Advances, about 60 percent of all plastic that has been produced since the 1950s is sitting in landfills around the world, noting that none of the mass-produced plastics biodegrade in a meaningful way.Ž While I try to wash and reuse plastic bags as much as I can, the obvious solution was to figure out how to reduce our dependence on plastic and aluminum. That led me to also look for an alternative to single-use paper towels along with ways to keep produce fresh longer, so as to reduce food waste. It turns out, its not as hard as I thought, but reducing wasnt the only answer. I also needed to rethink how we shopped for, cooked and stored our food. I call it our mindful kitchen.Ž (I honestly cant remember the last time I used a plastic zip-top bag, although I did find half a tomato swathed in a yard of foil the other day. Words were spoken.) Here are some ways you can create a more environmentally friendly kitchen, too: € Shop more often: Buying in bulk can lead to unintentional food waste. Instead of planning a weeks worth of family meals as I used to, I now shop for groceries almost every day. Its not an American approach, perhaps, but it works for me because I live in an urban area populated with large grocery stores, corner bodegas and several farmers markets, all within walking distance. € Consider a zerowaste option: If you want to do a better job of recycling items that arent accepted by your local facility, from plastic spatulas to bottle caps to water filters, consider TerraCycles pack-and-ship kitchen separation zero waste box.Ž The boxes can be purchased in different sizes (you can reduce the cost by splitting it with neighbors or co-workers) and, upon receipt, the company will melt metals for recycling and extrude and pelletize plastics to be remolded into new plastic products. € Clean out your pantry: Because I live in a fairly humid area, I tended to store items such as dry cereal and nuts in the refrigerator to help maintain their freshness. T-fals Ingenio Dry Storage containers, which are airtight and stackable, freed up space in the fridge without cluttering up my cupboards. € Go for the beeswax: Bees Wrap, Abeego and Etee are reusable food wraps primarily made of fabric coated in beeswax. Once you get used to using them, they work really well, and can be washed in cold water (hot water would melt the wax); the tricky part is remembering that the sticky fabric will not actually stick to the surface of, for instance, a glass bowl „ simply mold the fabric around the top and sides of the bowl, folding the edges of the fabric so that they stick together to form a sturdy seal. If theres a downside, its that I cant see through the wrap to know whats inside, but thats nothing a stickon label couldnt fix. € Use plastic sandwich and storage bag alternatives: The beeswaxcoated food wraps definitely work well for sandwiches, but Stashers reusable silicone bags made my heart skip a beat. Made of clear food-grade silicone (I can see inside!), the airtight bags come in a variety of options, from snack size up to a halfgallon, and can safely go from fridge to freezer to stovetop to microwave to oven. The bags are dishwasher-safe. € Improve your fresh food storage: Food Huggers are disks of food-grade silicone that simply slip over the cut ends of lemons, onions, apples, salami and so forth to prevent them from drying out „ an eminently practical solution to food storage, and theres even an avocado-shaped version. For storing greens and herbs, Vejibags are organic cotton bags that you dampen slightly, then fill with produce to store in the crisper drawers of the refrigerator; just dampen the bag again whenever it starts to dry out, and the leafy goods inside will stay fresh for weeks. How to break your plastic, foil and paper addiction in the kitchenBy Bonnie S. Benwick The Washington PostAre you wary of cooking fish on the grill, because it can tear so easily? We borrowed an easy technique from prolific cookbook authors Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough: Lay a bed of thin citrus slices across the grate or grill basket before you add the fillets. Depending on which citrus you use, you can chop up those grilled slices and use them to make a salsa for the fish. Weve used limes in this recipe, but oranges and lemons „ or better, yet, a mix of all three „ would be lovely. Because the fish cooks so quickly, you have time to let it defrost and marinate for a few minutes. We found this makes a world of difference, flavorwise, when it comes to mild-tasting cod. Cook this fish on the grill or in a grill pan on the stove top, as weve shown here. Look for thick-cut fillets. Serve with roasted/ smashed fingerling potatoes. Adapted from Kitchen Shortcut Bible: More Than 200 Recipes to Make Real Food Real Fast,Ž by Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough (Little, Brown and Co., 2018).Citrus will make your sh easier to grillFish Grilled on Citrus.

No matter what meat you have for your picnic, whether its sliders or a grilled meat, potato salad has always been a favorite side dish. In my opinion, there is no better dessert item than Southern tea cakes. Its like eating cake with a crunch and is good for any occasion, especially a picnic. Southern Potato Salad€ 4 c. cubed, cooked potatoes € 2 hard-boiled potatoes, chopped € Salt and black pepper to taste € c. chopped onion € c. sweet pickle relish € c. chopped bell pepper € 2 Tbsp. chopped pimiento € 1 1/3 c. mayonnaise In a large bowl, combine the cooked potatoes, eggs, salt, black pepper, onion, relish, bell pepper and pimiento.

In large mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients and beat until well mixed. This will be a sticky, thick mixture. It is easier to roll the dough if it is divided into two or three portions. Spoon out each portion of dough and place it on a well-” oured surface. Sprinkle a little ” our on top of the dough and carefully form it into a disk. Dont work too much ” our into the dough because you want a crisp (short-type) cookie. Roll the dough to a thickness of about inch. Cut with a 3-inch cookie cutter. Place the cookies on as many ungreased cookie sheets as are available, or line the cookie sheets with parchment paper. Space the cookies about 2 inches apart. Dont worry If the cookies are not exactly round because tea cakes dont have to be uniform in shape. Repeat with the remaining dough. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes, until lightly browned on top. These cookies will be slightly darker around the edge. Remove to a rack to cool.

In addition, Grant Alford was promoted to offensive coordi-nator and Terrance Larmond was hired as defensive coordinator after Joey McGuire, who held the position for three years, was named head coach at Wildwood earlier this month.Mason spent three seasons at Mount Dora. He stepped down after the 2017 season amid an accusation that he failed to stop players from referring to a black teammate by racially insensitive names until prompted by an email, according to a report provided by the Florida High School Athletic Association.He was also accused, according to the FHSAA report, of playing members from his travel-ball team ahead of deserving players who didnt play travel ball.Mason emphatically denied both claims, and said he Lake Minneola names coachesMount Dora coach John Mason talks to his team during a game in 2017. Mason has been hired as Lake Minneolas softball coach. [PAUL RYAN / CORRESPONDENT] Editors Not e: Tuesday nights All-Star game was not complete in time for this edition.By Ben NuckolsThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ In decades past they would have been given nicknames like Pee WeeŽ and coached to shorten their swings, keep the ball close to the ground, find holes and use their speed to leg out base hits.Now, small ballŽ has a new meaning. This homer-happy era of baseball is proving that big sluggers can be found in in tiny packages.Consider some of the guys in Tuesday nights AllStar Game: Jose Ramirez, all 5-foot-9 and 165 pounds of him, whose 29 homers at the break are tied for the AL lead. Mookie Betts, also 5-foot-9, has 23 long balls and hit 31 last season. Ozzie Albies, who at age 21 could maybe hope for a late growth spurt, is 5-foot-8 and has 20 homers. And of course theres the best inch-for-inch hitter in baseball, 5-foot-6 Jose Altuve, the three-time bat-ting champion whos gone deep nine times this year but hit 24 homers in each of the past two seasons.You look around this room, its not just big guys. Its guys of all sizes,Ž said first-time All-Star Alex Bregman, whos listed at 6 feet, 180 pounds and has 20 homers. What you see are ballplayers. You dont have to be big to be a ball-player. You have to have the skills.Ž And their skills are hold-ing up just fine against giants like Aaron Judge (6-foot-7, 282 pounds, 25 homers), J.D. Martinez (6-foot-3, 220 pounds, 29 homers), Jesus Aguilar (6-foot-3, 250 pounds, 24 homers) and the consensus best hitter in the game with the ideal body type to match, Mike Trout (6-foot-2, 235 pounds, 25 homers).Altuve credits hitters who understand how to maximize their physical tools.In Mookie, I see quick hands and a really good lower body, hitting-wise, and I can see why he hits a lot of home runs,Ž Altuve said. I would say its more technique than strength now for hitting homers.ŽJustin Verlander knows he cant relax when hes on the mound against a player like Altuve, his Astros teammate. Size doesnt matter. Bat speed does.I think its part of the change of the game. Ive talked to Jose about it. Hes changed himself a few years back and started swinging more aggressively,Ž Verlander said. You didnt used to see guys like that Small Ball: Jose Altuve, Mookie Betts pack compact pop Tiger Woods walks the third hole during a practice round for the 147th British Open Golf championships in Carnoustie, Scotland, on Tuesday.

Daniel Suarez, 344By Tim ReynoldsThe Associated PressLAS VEGAS „ Heres a scenario: LeBron James is four assists and three rebounds shy of a triple-double after three quarters. A bettor, who is watching at home and utilizing a mobile app, decides to gamble that James will get those assists and rebounds in the final 12 minutes. The wager then gets made before play resumes.The NBA wants that bettor to see the best pos-sible data.So the league is seeking to get stats out quicker than ever.Fast isnt fast enough for the NBA anymore, not when it comes to stats „ especially now that the U.S. Supreme Court has opened the door for states to allow wagering on games. The league has upgraded its stat systems in the past year to try and get its data out as close to real-time as possible, even aiming to beat the typical lag of 7-15 seconds that it takes for television or stream-ing services to show whatever happened.Its about what the NBA calls official data. The leagues stance is that getting accurate stats to bettors is critical so the player knows what theyre betting on and the casinos will know when to pay out or not. But how much value that data has for casinos „ and whether they will pay anything for it „ remains unclear.My view is we should be compensated for our intellectual property, but we can do that directly, again, with commercial relationships with gaming establishments,Ž said NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, whose league had hoped this matter would be resolved with federal regulation instead of various policies getting worked on state by state by state.Silver met with betting officials in Las Vegas ear-lier this month, and how data should be provided was one of the topics on the agenda. The NBA has said it is seeking a 1 percent integrity feeŽ on wagers, which the league said would offset their additional security costs and compensate them for the data they can provide.The casinos, however, are balking at legislative mandates insisting upon the use of official data. Joe Asher, the CEO of book-maker William Hill USA, told The New York Times that such a mandate sets up monopoly pricing power. This whole thing of official league data is like a smoke screen.ŽIts a major issue to work through, especially if in-game betting „ people betting on vari-ous aspects of games after theyve already started „ catches on in the United States the same way that it has in the United Kingdom.In-game betting, which is huge in Europe, is still relatively small in this country. Most Nevada bookmakers say in-game options make up no more than 5 percent of their sports-wagering business, although William Hill has said it accounted for nearly 25 percent of its sports business in the U.S. during 2017.Only a handful of states have legalized sports bet-ting since the Supreme Court decision in May, though several more states are expected to get operations up and running in the next year or so. Bettors now have been largely playing the basics „ will Team X beat Team Y by more than six points, will the teams combine to score more than 210 points, that sort of thing. NBA preps for expanded betting on games

PAGE 15 | Wednesday, July 18, 2018 C3champion Patrick Reed and Bryson DeChambeau.This was not a case of a 42-year-old needing his rest.Entering the year having not played any major since the end of 2015 and the start of three back surgeries, Woods has been feeling better as 2018 has gone on. And theres something about links golf that inspires him.Its my favorite type of golf to play,Ž Woods said. I love playing here, this type of links golf, or a style of links golf down on the Aussie sand belt ... because it is creative. Were not going to get the most perfect bounces. And I think thats the fun challenge of it.ŽHe made his links debut at Carnoustie in 1995 as an amateur at the Scottish Open, a week before his British Open debut at St. Andrews. He hasnt contended on the back nine in the previ-ous Opens at Carnoustie, in 1999 and 2007, though he wasnt far from a playoff.Might this be his best shot at winning another major? Not to be smart, but it is the next major Im play-ing,Ž Woods said with a laugh.But over time, he thinks it might be his best chance because of history. Woods recalls 53-year-old Greg Norman playing in the final group at Royal Birkdale in 2008, a major Woods missed because of knee surgery. The following year, Woods missed the cut for the first time at the British Open when 59-year-old Tom Watson was one putt away from winning at Turnberry.You dont have to be long to play on a links-style golf course,Ž Woods said. You get to places like Augusta National, where its just a big ballpark, and the golf course outgrows you, unfortunately. Thats just the way it goes. But a linksstyle golf course, you can roll the ball. Distance becomes a moot point.ŽThat said, distance is everything at Carnoustie this year, which Woods discovered when he arrived Sunday. How far the ball travels in the warm, dry air is not the issue. Its how far it travels once it gets on the baked turf.Dustin Johnson discov-ered that when he arrived on Saturday and reached the 499-yard 18th hole, with a stiff breeze at his back and fairways running only slightly slower than they did on the weekend at Shinnecock Hills.He hit driver into the burn. The next day, his drive was a few yards short of the burn.I hit some irons, and depending on the wind, Ill probably hit anywhere from ... Ive hit 3-wood, 3-iron and 4-iron off the tee,Ž Johnson said. I like all of them.ŽWith the wind at his back on the 513-yard 14th hole, Johnson hit 3-iron and wedge.One thing hasnt changed about links golf „ its best to keep the ball out of the pot bunkers, which effectively are a one-shot penalty. The question for so many players is whether that means going down to as little as a 7-iron off the tee (such as the 350-yard third hole) or smashing driver over all the trouble.Johnson figures hell hit driver on half of the holes. U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka might hit as many as nine drivers.The conditions are as brittle as Muirfield in 2013, though most com-parisons are with Hoylake in 2006, when Woods won the Open for the second straight time by hitting driver only one time all week.Theres not a lot of opportunities to hit the driver just because the ball is going to be rolling 80 yards,Ž Woods said. Its just hard to keep the ball in play. Even hit-ting sometimes 4and 5-irons, theyve been running 50, 60 yards. Its going to be an interesting test to see which clubs were going to be using off the tees, and a lot of it is dependent on which way the wind blows.ŽWoods had a 2-iron built for him specifically for the British Open, and he wonders how much hell even use it. That has been too much club off the tee. Instead, most of his shots are with a 3-iron or 4-iron.Reed was familiar with conditions the year Woods won at Hoylake, even though he was only 15. Reed won the Junior British Open that summer at Heswall, not far from Royal Liverpool. It was not only dry but extremely hot, and Reed was in rain pants because he didnt like wearing shorts.Ill never forget hitting the first tee shot and being as young as I was, getting up there, and it was 308,Ž Reed said. And I was just like, Wow, I just hit a drive over 300 yards. And now Im hit-ting 2-irons over 360.Ž OPENFrom Page C1resigned for personal reasons.Banks said the school received 20 applications for the job. The initial list was whittled down to four finalists, including Mason, and the finalists were interviewed by a hiring committee made up of Banks and assistant principals Kristine Cavinder and Cyndi Page.After each finalist was interviewed, the committee made its recommendation to Principal Linda Shep-herd-Miller before a final decision was announced.Banks said Masons coaching experience and knowledge of the game, along with his organizational skills, set him apart from the other can-didates. He was, Banks said, a clear favorite among the finalists.Coach Mason had a very strong interview with us,Ž Banks said. We did our due diligence, like we would with any other potential hire. We conducted an extensive background check and looked into any issues that may have involved him.He was highly rec-ommended by a number of parents at Mount Dora and by parents of players on his travel ball team.ŽDuring his tenure at Mount Dora, Mason compiled a 44-36 record, including a 10-16 mark in 2017. His best season with the Hurricanes, arguably, occurred in 2015 „ his first with the program „ when he led the team to a 19-9 record, the Class 5A-District 13 championship and the only regional finals appearance in school history.Mason will be looking to improve on Lake Min-neolas 9-13-1 record in 2018. We have the utmost confidence in coach Masons ability to lead our softball pro-gram,Ž Banks said. COACHESFrom Page C1that were small that ... had that kind of pop. Oppo (opposite field) pop. Thats the big thing thats changed, homers to opposite field. Thats something I didnt used to see much except with guys like Miguel Cabrera. Now youre seeing it with almost everybody.ŽBaseball appears to be headed for a reckoning with the ugly side of hitters power-first approach. Defensive shifts, obsession with launch angles and indifference to strikeouts are being blamed for every-thing from increasing the length of games to making the sport more dull and one-dimensional. There is talk of banning shifts or forcing relief pitch-ers to face more than one batter in order to generate more excitement and incentivize putting balls in play.But there might be an upside to a more egalitarian sport in which players arent expected to change their approach for no reason other than their stature.Betts knows that a decade or two ago, he might have been coached differently. Probably get it on the ground, use my speed. Times have changed,Ž Betts said. We, as in small guys, may not be as big and strong, but we can pack the power. I think thats just one of those things we have to go out and show.ŽAnd there are compet-ing theories about whats allowed smaller guys to flex their compact muscles.Verlander gave the one-word answer a pitcher might be expected to give: Baseballs.ŽTheories that the ball is juiced were given some statistical backing before the season when Major League Baseball released a study saying baseballs have been producing less drag, causing them to carry farther. But MLB said it didnt understand why or how the change occurred.Hitters, naturally, have a different explanation. They blame the pitchers.Honestly, I feel like everybody is throwing harder. You dont have to hit the ball as hard anymore,Ž Dodgers out-fielder Matt Kemp said. Honestly, all you have to do is square it up and the ball is going to fly if they mess up. These guys are throwing really hard. Strikeouts are up. Home runs are up. Everything is up. Its just a game of who throws harder and who can square it up.Ž PACKFrom Page C1Cleveland Indians Jose Ramirez hits a home run against the New York Yankees on Saturday in Cleveland. [AP PHOTO / RON SCHWANE] Betts import ant for players to understand another championship run must be earned.Its a little different and I will say its a little dangerous,Ž Ledbetter said. That thought of complacency starts to come in there. We kind of have to push it out if we hear Oh yeah, theyre going to win it this year.ŽAdded Ledbetter: Youve got to take it one game at a time. If you start looking at the future or the past youve messed up.ŽAs the defending SEC champion, Georgia expects to get every oppo-nents top effort.We know everyone is going to circle us on their schedule but that doesnt change our mentality,Ž said cornerback J.R. Reed. ... We know everyone is going to be gunning for us but we cant change. We have to keep the same mentality.ŽGeorgia returns 13 starters, including eight on offense. Sophomore quarterback Jake Fromm has new competition from freshman Josh Fields, one of the biggest names in Smarts top-rated 2018 signing class.The momentum we created from last season has been tremendous for us through recruiting, through spring,Ž Smart said.Fields, skilled as a runner and passer, will enter preseason practice as the No. 2 quarterback, but its clear Smart has big plans for the fresh-man. Smart said he has no plans to hold out Fields as a redshirt.He gives us an element in our offense we dont have,Ž Smart said.Usually, a team might be expected to struggle to replace a pair of senior tailbacks selected in the NFL draft.

DEAR ABBY: I have guardianship of my 12-year-old grandson. He has recently fallen head over heels for a girl in his class and wants to date her. I am out of touch with the younger generation, and I'm not sure how to answer his questions, like, "Does the boy or girl initiate the kiss?" I would appreciate knowing about any pamphlets or brochures you have for sale on this subject. Thank you. -MARGARET O. IN MASSACHUSETTS DEAR MARGARET: Kids are maturing at younger ages than when we were growing up. Part of the reason may be that television, movies and the internet have exposed them to subjects we were not when we were their age. That said, not all of the information they receive from the media and their friends is accurate. I'm glad you asked because I have a booklet that may be helpful. It's titled "What Every Teen Should Know," and it's lled with information on subjects such as, "How to know when you're ready to date," "Are you ready for sex?" "How old must a boy be before he can father a child?" and "Can a girl get pregnant the rst time she has sex?" A section on sexually transmitted diseases is also included. Because STDs need to be treated right away and ignoring or not recognizing the symptoms can have lifelong consequences, there is a list of the various STDs and what to do if you have one. You can order a booklet by sending your name and address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds) to Dear Abby Teen Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL, 610540447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. The Teen booklet has been distributed in doctors' ofces and used to promote discussions by educators and religious leaders, as well as parents who nd it hard to discuss these topics with their children. Review it BEFORE giving it to your grandson, so you can prepare beforehand to answer his questions or guide the conversation. The more information you can give him, the better prepared he will be to make intelligent decisions in the important years that lie ahead.DEAR ABBY: I am in my 80s. From time to time, when I have tried to contact a dear old friend or distant relative, I nd they have recently passed away. Don't you think it would be a good idea for older people to make a short list of people we want contacted in case of serious illness or death? So many times our survivors have no idea who some of our friends are or how to contact them. -GARY G. IN GEORGIA DEAR GARY: I think your idea is a sensible one. The list should include not only names, but also contact information. Thank you for sharing this with me and my readers because -let's face it -nobody lives forever. 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. or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

YESTERDAYS SOLUTION BRIDGE CRYPTOQUOTE HOROSCOPES TODAY IN HISTORY DIVERSIONS Grandma is at a loss for words of advice for smitten grandson HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR WEDNESDAY, JULY 18, 2018:This year you have several strong desires, which sometimes might conict with each other. Understand that they are all a part of you. You can be unusually emotional and caring, and you also have a very romantic side. If you are single, you easily could intrigue several people who would like to be yours. Do not commit unless you feel sure about someone. If you are attached, the two of you maintain the passion of new lovers. Romance is a high priority for you both. LIBRA could be envious of how passionate you can be. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) You could feel slightly out of sorts this morning. Communication might not ow as easily as youd like, but you will get your message across, especially when dealing with a feisty friend. Worry less about what is going on around you. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) You will be very open, at least with those you deal with in some capacity in your daily life. You work well in a team setting. You will nd that an older relative is on the war path and cannot be held back. Keep your distance from difcult people. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Listen to news and information that comes forward. Your creativity bridges any gaps. This same ingenuity helps you bypass an obstacle or two. Let your sense of humor help others relax. Note what comes up spontaneously, and go with the ow. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Pressure builds in an odd way. You might have misunderstood what someone has said. Try to remain levelheaded. Someone does not mean to challenge you, but inevitably does. You see how fast a loved one or associate comes to the rescue. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Speak your mind, but also make sure you return all calls. There could be a surprise awaiting you. A friend or loved one is unusually assertive. Youll be happy to see this person become bolder, as he or she usually seems so in control. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) You might be overly concerned about your nances. You also could have a strong reaction to someone elses request. Be on time, manage your work and decide if you have room to do what this person desires. Do not hold back. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Regardless of whether someone trips you up, you remain on solid ground and know which way you want to head. Be concerned if a loved one becomes angry or frustrated. Pull away from others if you feel as if there is going to be a problem. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You have a strong sense of direction, and you know what you expect from others. The problem lies in the fact that a lot is going on behind the scenes. You cannot change what is. Keep your own counsel if you feel uncomfortable. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Get through a project with focus. An informal get-together with friends could be the source of important information; you wont want to miss it. Great ideas come out of this moment. Be careful not to push anyone in a certain direction. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22JAN. 19) You could be overwhelmed by the demands of a parent or supervisor. You are full of smiles, but below the grin you could be swallowing a substantial amount of anger. Do not be surprised if you suddenly blurt out a harsh comment or statement. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) You could be overly assertive or acting out in a somewhat hostile way. You might have kept some strong feelings to yourself. Just be careful not to be sarcastic or take out your anger on the wrong person. It would be best to have a calm conversation. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Be aware of your limits. You could be projecting quite differently from how you normally do. You might need to talk to someone to express your anger, rather than misplace your feelings. A partner or associate points to a better way or direction. | Wednesday, July 18, 2018 C5TODAY IS WEDNESDAY, JULY 18, the 199th day of 2018. There are 166 days left in the year. TODAY'S HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY: On July 18, 1940, the Democratic National Convention at Chicago Stadium nominated President Franklin D. Roosevelt (who was monitoring the proceedings at the White House) for an unprecedented third term in oce; earlier in the day, Eleanor Roosevelt spoke to the convention, becoming the rst presidential spouse to address such a gathering. ON THIS DATE: In 1932 the United States and Canada signed a treaty to develop the St. Lawrence Seaway. In 1947 President Harry S. Truman signed a Presidential Succession Act which placed the speaker of the House and the Senate president pro tempore next in the line of succession after the vice president. In 1969 Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., left a party on Chappaquiddick Island near Martha's Vineyard with Mary Jo Kopechne, 28; some time later, Kennedy's car went o a bridge into the water. Kennedy was able to escape, but Kopechne drowned. In 1984 gunman James Huberty opened re at a McDonald's fast food restaurant in San Ysidro (ee-SEE'-droh), California, killing 21 people before being shot dead by police. Walter F.

The customer programs a food selection, then robots make each hamburger to order, adding desired condiments and even slicing whole pickles with millimeter precision. Artificial intelligence has also been utilized recently in an attempt to recreate a Beatles song. Critics called the final product somewhat emotionless,Ž and noted that it sounded more like the Beach Boys than the Beatles, but the very fact that weve got the technology to attempt such an endeavor is disconcerting to artists. Our ability to control, regulate and direct AI represents a significant signpost toward a healthy economy in the 21st century. So the viability of using cobots, or collaborative robots, in the manufacturing sector is especially encouraging. A 2016 study by the International Federation of Robotics reveals that less than 10 percent of jobs can be completely automated. Of course, that statistic suggests that 90 percent of tasks can be at least partially automated. Most of those jobs are currently filled by low-wage, low-skilled workers. Traditional robots require extensive programming. They are often cumbersome, relatively immobile and dangerous for nearby workers, and many perform their functions locked away from employees. Perhaps most importantly, their presence was a threat to employees because they replaced human hands. Cobots, on the other hand, work in tandem with humans and can help boost productivity, which then increases overall employment. Designed to shut down if a person crosses their path, cobots minimize work-site injury. Most require no sophisticated coding and are generally lighter and more mobile than traditional robots. Nearly a quarter million global industrial robots were sold last year, and only 5 percent of these were cobots. But cobots, sometimes called flexible robots, could soon become an important component of the profitability of small manufacturing plants. As economist Gary Schilling has written, Collaborative robots that work alongside humans ... are getting cheaper and easier to program. And theyre safer and more userfriendly than earlier models that had to be caged to protect humans ... Cobots are being used in warehouses and are much cheaper in moving goods than miles of conveyor belts. Integrating technology like cobots into industrial manufacturing makes imminent sense to me. We cannot afford to invent and program ourselves into a state of high unemployment. But using technology as a complimentary feature on the factory floor is an evolved solution that can simultaneously assist us in achieving maximum efficiency and high employment. Margaret R.

The Associated PressBy Ken SweetThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Another Wall Street veteran of the financial crisis is stepping aside: Lloyd Blankfein is retiring as CEO of Gold-man Sachs after 12 years at the helm of the storied investment bank.Blankfein will give way to David Solomon, a long-time Goldman executive who has been considered Blankfeins chosen successor since earlier this year. Solomon will assume the CEO role from Blankfein on Oct. 1 and become chairman of Goldman in 2019.The succesion announcement came Tuesday as Goldman announced a 44-percent jump in second-quarter profit from a year ago. The performance was largely driven by the investment banks core franchises: advising companies on mergers, acquisitions and other deals, and its trading business.A long-time Goldman employee who rose through the ranks in commodity trading business, Blankfein took the reins of Goldman Sachs in 2006, not long before the Great Recession and financial crisis. Goldman and its com-petitors accumulated billions of dollars of toxic assets on their books „ bad mortgages, collateralized debt obligations and other illiquid assets. In the darkest days of the crisis, it was thought Goldman Sachs may not survive. By late 2008, some of Goldmans key rivals „ Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns and Merrill Lynch „ were either bought in dis-tressed sales or, in the case of Lehman, went bankrupt.Blankfein moved quickly to save the firm from its near-death experience, tapping the Federal Reserves emergency programs set up to keep banks from failure. Eventually and reluctantly, Goldman took money from the $700 billion TARP bailout program, which it repaid. He pushed the firms trad-ing desks to aggressively take positions through the markets volatility and in 2009, only a year after the crisis, Goldman reported record earnings driven largely by trading revenue.Lloyds market savvy, intellect, energy, enthu-siasm, charm and quick wit have helped him suc-cessfully steer Goldman Sachs through the finan-cial crisis and position it for the future while earn-ing him great respect and affection inside the firm and from friends and cli-ents around the world,Ž said Hank Paulson, who was CEO of Goldman Sachs before Blankfein. He left the firm to become Treasury Secre-tary for President George W. Bush.But the efforts gave Goldman and Blankfein, a son of a postal worker who grew up in housing projects, few fans outside of Wall Street in the early years after the crisis. The bank came under heavy criticism that it directly benefited from the 2008 government bailout of insurance giant AIG, and was just as responsible for creating the revolving door of toxic mortgages that led to the crisis. There were also accusations that Gold-mans bankers took bets on the mortgage market against their clients own positions.Goldman Sachs employees, among the best paid in finance, continued to be paid well despite the mess Wall Street left for the rest of the country. A scathing article written for Rolling Stone nicknamed Goldman Sachs the great vampire squid,Ž a term that stuck for years. The months-long Occupy Wall Street movement portrayed Goldman as a villain.Congress eventually passed a law, the Dodd-Frank Act, which imposed new restrictions on Goldmans business. The firm was bought under the oversight of the Federal Reserve, and is now subject to annual stress testsŽ like other big banks.Blankfein worked to rehabilitate the banks image, and diversify Goldmans businesses beyond the traditional trading and advising. Goldman Sachs now offers online savings accounts and personal loans to consumers, and there are plans for it to enter the credit card business -all businesses that Goldman shunned before the financial crisis.Blankfein to step aside as Goldman CEO, Solomon to take over
