Their coach quickly told everyone to be quiet.We werent sure if it was for real,Ž said 14-year-old Adul Samon. So we stopped and listened. And it turned out to be true. I was shocked.ŽThat stunning moment when two British divers found the missing soccer team was recounted by the boys Wednesday at their first news conference since the rescue that riveted the world.They all looked healthy as they walked out to applause from classmates and reporters in a hall decked out as a miniature soccer field. Dressed in green, white and black uniforms emblazoned with a red wild boar „ the nickname of their team „ the boys briefly showed off their ball-handling skills before answering questions that were reviewed in advance.The boys, aged 11-6, and their 25-year-old coach had come from the hospital where they have been recuperating for more than a week. They hugged their friends before taking seats up front with doctors and members of the Thai navy SEAL unit that rescued them from the Tham Luang cave after more than two weeks inside.Each member of the Wild Boars stood and introduced himself by name and position. The SEALs also were introduced, but they used pseudonyms and wore base-ball caps and sunglasses to cloak their identities for secu-rity reasons.In one poignant and emo-tional moment, a portrait was displayed of Saman Gunan, the former Thai navy SEAL Thai boys share lessons learned in caveRescued soccer player TitanŽ Chanin Vibulrungruang reacts after paying respect to a portrait of Saman Gunan, the Thai Navy SEAL diver who died in the rescue attempt, during a press conference discussing their ordeal in Chiang Rai, northern Thailand, Wednesday.

His response followed words of alarm last week from National Intelligence Director Dan Coats, who said warning lights about overall cyberthreats to the U.S. were "blinking red."In the aftermath of his Hel-sinki meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump asserted that no other American president has been as "tough" on Russia as he has been. He cited U.S. sanctions on Russia and the expulsion of alleged Russian spies.Coats said last week that Russia has been the most aggressive cyberthreat but other efforts are coming from China, Iran and North Korea as well as criminal networks and individual hackers.Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said on Twitter that Trump's comments were "simply false. Directly con-tradicted by DNI Coats, who just sounded the alarm about Russia's 'ongoing,' perva-sive efforts to undermine our democracy."Trump's comments came a day after he walked back his public questioning of U.S. intelligence findings of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Or witness a mock court-martial of Star Wars Poe Dameron for leading a mutiny in Star Wars: The Last JediŽ? How about a wine and beer tasting with Neil deGrasse Tyson? Or a Ready Player OneŽ experience with retro gaming stations and recreation of Room 237 from The Shin-ingŽ? If you like pop culture, its highly likely there is something tailor-made for you at Comic-Con 2018.What started as a 300person event in 1970 has evolved into a massive operation with events year-round. But San Diego Comic-Con is the marquee occasion. Tickets for fourday access plus preview night can set attendees back $276, before hotel, travel costs, food and any souvenirs. And attendees have come to expect exclusive merchandise on the con-vention center floor, newsy announcements from some of Hollywoods biggest studios, and screenings of anticipated films and tele-vision shows.This year Warner Bros. is coming armed with stars and footage from Aquaman,Ž Shazam!,Ž Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grin-delwaldŽ and The LEGO Movie 2Ž; Sony is hyping its Spider-Man spinoff VenomŽ; and Universal Pictures will be teasing HalloweenŽ and M. Night Shyamalans Glass.Ž On the television side, fans will get a glimpse of new Doctor WhoŽ star Jodie Whittaker and have a chance to check out Star Trek: DiscoveryŽ and Riverdale.Ž And streaming services like Net-flix and Hulu will be back with properties like Marvels Iron FistŽ and the new J.J. Abrams-produced Castle Rock,Ž based on Stephen King stories.But a few of the major play-ers are conspicuously absent from Hall H, the 6,500-seat room in the San Diego Con-vention Center that boasts the highest-profile presen-tations and often attracts an enthusiastic fan base will-ing to camp out overnight in line to secure a coveted seat. Those skipping this year include Marvel Studios, HBO (Game of ThronesŽ) and Star Wars.Its a huge deal when major properties like Marvel, Star Wars or HBO dont show up,Ž says Germain Lussier, an entertainment reporter for io9/Gizmodo who has been attending the convention for 15 years. For the past decade, Marvel Stu-dios panels have consistently been the No. 1 most anticipated thing for movie fans at Comic-Con. Their panels never failed to disappoint with exclusive footage, huge news and big surprises.ŽProduction schedules are more to blame than anything else, however. Lussier notes that each of the absent brands has a big (and intensely secretive) installment coming in 2019, including Avengers 4,Ž Star Wars: Episode IXŽ and the final season of Game of Thrones.ŽInstead of showing up and disappointing fans, theyre simply bowing out to not bolster expectations,Ž he says.Also, other brands and properties could benefit from an unusually open runway.Every year, theres always one or two things everyone is talking about. And if its not Avengers 4or Star Wars, whats it going to be?Ž says Lussier. I think this is a huge opportunity for Warner Bros. to steal every headline with major news and exciting footage.Ž Follow AP Film Writer Lindsey Bahr on Twitter: www.twitter.com/ldbahrComic-Con without Marvel gives others a chanceIn this July 2017 “ le photo, guests attend the “ rst day of ComicCon International in San Diego.

[ASSOCIATED PRESS/AL POWERS] This year, Warner Bros., Sony, Universal and TV are coming to the rescue By Chad Day and Eric TuckerThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ A gunrights activist suspected of being a covert Russian agent was likely in contact with Kremlin operatives while living in the United States, prosecutors said Wednesday in court papers that also accused her of using sex and deception to forge influential connections.The woman, Maria Butina, 29, was observed by the FBI dining privately with a Russian diplomat suspected of being an intelligence operative in the weeks before the envoys departure from the U.S. last March, prosecutors say. She also had contact information for people who investigators believe were employees of Russias Federal Security Services, or FSB, the succes-sor intelligence agency to the KGB.The allegations, made in court filings aimed at per-suading a judge to keep Butina in custody, add to the por-trait of a Russian woman who the Justice Department says worked covertly to establish back-channel lines of communication to the Kremlin and infiltrate U.S. political organizations, including the National Rifle Association, and gather intelligence for a senior Russian official to whom she reported.Prosecutors also alleged that she had a personal relationship with an American political operative and also offered sex to another person in exchange for a position with a special interest organization.Court papers do not name the individuals or the special interest group.Butina awaits trial on charges of conspiracy and acting as an unregistered foreign agent for Russia. A judge on Wednesday ordered Butina held in jail as the case moves forward.Citing her intelligence ties, the government is arguing that Butina poses an extremeŽ risk of fleeing the United States, where she has been living on a student visa. In seeking her detention, prosecutors said Butinas legal status in the United States is predicated on deception.ŽShady portrait emerges of suspected Russian spyCourt lings: Woman in U.S. custody used sex, deceit to aid KremlinBy Robert JablonAssociated PressLOS ANGELES „ A self-described beachcomber says it was her luckiest find yet: A woman who survived a 250-foot car plunge off a cliff and a week stranded on a remote California beach.We freakin love that beach and were so glad shes alive,Ž Chelsea Moore said Monday as she described the afternoon last Friday when she and her husband found 23-year-old Angela Hernandez of Portland.Hernandez had been driv-ing to her sisters home in Lancaster, near Los Angeles, on July 6 when a small animal crossed in front of her, causing her to swerve and lose control of her car, she wrote from her hospital bed Sunday in a Facebook account.The only thing I really remember after that was waking up,Ž Hernandez wrote. I was still in my car and I could feel water rising over my knees. My head hurt and when I touched it, I found blood on my hands.ŽHernandez said she broke a window of her car, jumped into the ocean and swam ashore. She fell asleep on the beach and realized what had happened after she woke up.Moore, 34, and her husband Chad, 31, of Morro Bay were camping above an oceanside cliff in the rugged Big Sur area of Mon-terey County when they decided to climb down a cliff to a remote beach to find some good surfing and fishing spots „ and a little adventure.Were avid beachcomb-ers. We get excited about sea glass and abalone shells,Ž Moore said.Instead, they came on a car bumper and a short time later spotted a rusty and wrecked Jeep. Nobody was in it.The couple took the license plate to show authorities. They also saw items scattered around that they also collected, among them, a poster for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Ohio, Moore said.In my head, I thought that maybe someone had died and we would give these items to the next of kin,Ž she said. We both agreed that there werent survivors.ŽBut just in case, they walked further along the beach.After another quarter-mile, the Moores heard a cry for help, and then another.Then they saw Hernandez.She was really happy and she wasnt sure we were real,Ž Moore said. She told us we were the first people she had seen in days but she didnt know how many days exactly. We told her we were going to help her and get her off that beach.ŽCalifornia woman describes nding cli plunge survivorAngela Hernandez, 23, left, of Portland, Ore., and Chelsea Moore after Hernandez survived a 250-foot car plunge off a cliff and a week stranded on a remote beach near Big Sur, Calif.

Also up for approval is a 233 single-family home development on the site of the former Silver Lake Country Club.But the biggest project to be discussed Thursday will be the $100-million-plus Venetian Isle development on Dixie Avenue, with town homes, medi-cal offices, retail, assisted living and a Marriott hotel.Silver Lake Drive is best known for nice homes on big lots shaded by massive oak trees overlooking the lake and a relatively quiet, narrow road that encircles the lake. The community is behind Lake-Sumter State College.Surrounding neighbor-hoods are accessed mainly by Morningside Drive and Radio Road.Like a previous prospective developer of the former country club site, the new owner of Silver Lake Club will use Morn-ingside as the gated entry point. Unlike the previous owner, Silver Lake Club, as it will be called, will not be developed with a mixture of single-family and multi-family housing.Developer Richard Wohlfarth said the homes should be in the $250,000 to $350,000 range. The minimum-sized lot will be 100-by-125 feet, he said.The 46.5-acre site, off North Silver Lake Road, is being developed by Belle Rive Ventures. The inter-section of North Silver Lake and CR 44 is near the Arbors apartment complex on CR 44.The zoning request is to change the large-scale Zoning board to hear Silver Lake planVenetian Isles will occupy about 50 acres south of Dixie Avenue in Leesburg.

BRIEFSFrom Page A3 Protesters have been upset about reports of parents being separated from their children at the U.S.-Mexican border after entering the United States illegally.ICE put a hold on Hernandez. Once law enforcement and the judicial system is done with the person, ICE checks to see if the person can be deported.ICE was limited as to what they could divulge about the case, including whether Hernandez has a prior criminal record.Spicer said she was not familiar with organized crime by illegal immigrants. ICE is very concerned about human trafficking and smuggling. There are a lot of victims in these crimes.ŽIn April, a man was sentenced to life in federal prison when 10 of several illegal immigrants packed in a truck died in a smuggling operation in Texas. SMUGGLEFrom Page A3 the player knows the outcome, he said.He can walk away at any time. He doesnt have to play,Ž DeMag-gio said.A key issue in the case involves whether the slot-machine law applies to playing a single game or a series of games. While the outcome of the first game is revealed in advance, a player at the outset does not know the results of subsequent games.Judge James Wolf repeatedly asked lawyers on both sides whether the court should consider whether a single game or a series of games violates the law.Im a simple kind of guy. It comes down to whether we can consider the entire course of the play or one particular game. Their argument is one particular game is not a game of chance because you know the outcome. ƒ What in the statute allows us to consider the entire course of play?Ž he asked, pointing out that the state law defines slot machines, in part, as a device whose outcome is unpredictable by the user.ŽThe answer rests in the way the machines gener-ate the games, which the state believes violates the law, said McGinn, whose department regulates gambling.From our perspective, it doesnt matter whether its one game. It doesnt matter whether its mul-tiple games,Ž he said.The appeal follows a decision last year by Leon County Circuit Judge John Cooper, who reversed himself after originally siding with the manufacturer and dis-tributor of the machines.Cooper changed his mind after the Seminole Tribe of Florida asked him to reconsider the decision. Blue Sky and Gator Coin sued the state after investigators with the Division of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms decided the games were effectively illegal slot machines and began con-fiscating the devices.The Seminoles, who intervened in the case on the side of regulators, asked the Legislature to address the legality of the games or risk having the state lose millions of dol-lars in a revenue-sharing agreement that gives the tribe the exclusive rights to operate slots outside Broward and Miami-Dade counties.But lawmakers earlier this year failed to approve any legislation that would remedy the dispute.

Water has crept into low-lying yards on either side of the river and some docks.However, on Sunday and Monday, the river apparently crested and water level has begun to recede ever so slightly. Since Sunday, Weather Service records show, the water level in the river has dropped about two inches at Lake Harney.With aquifer levels higher than theyve been in years, water levels in lakes across DeBary and Deltona also have crept higher, since many of those lakes are connected to the sur-rounding groundwater. The city put in a pump and water pipes in an area along DeLeon Road, pumping the water into the citys stormwater system. The city also is working in other areas, said Alan Williamson, the citys public works director.The problem is the groundwater,Ž Williamson said. Theres nowhere for this water to go, so its just building up in the lakes and doesnt have an outfall.Ž FLOODINGFrom Page A3As a lake “ lls higher in DeBary, water gets closer and closer to the surrounding homes.

DailyCommercial.com | Thursday, July 19, 2018 A5to drop their federal law-suit against the city in what was a very one-sided victory.The apology, made during a press conference at City Hall, was vague in that it didnt spell out what the city did wrong. Sherry Sutphen, the attorney who represented the city in the federal suit, said only that the city is acknowledging it needs to work on its codes.ŽWe are pleased to have this matter resolved to the benefit of all concerned. Thank you to everyone who shared their concerns during this lengthy pro-cess,Ž Girone said. With this matter behind us, the city wants to look ahead and focus on reviewing our present codes and to continue as a city that embraces art and artists with open arms, since we are Someplace Special.ŽNemhauser, who sat next to Girone during the press conference, said the couple were very grateful for it. Its very meaningful.ŽAfter the meeting, Nemhauser acknowledged however, that she and Jastrzebski were put through the wringerŽ and that they feel like victims of selective enforcement.Jastrzebski said at times during the past year,he even felt bullied by the city.We are glad this is over and very happy with the settlement, but this was a classic case of bullying. I will never know why it happened this way. I wish to know who was making the decisions,Ž he said.The settlement con-cludes a battle that began 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 down-town. 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.As both sides dug in their heels, a city magistrate 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 fed-eral lawsuit. In February, a federal judge granted a restraining order tem-porarily blocking the city from imposing additional fines on the house. By that time however, the fines had accrued to well over $10,000.During Wednesdays press conference, Girone, reading from a prepared statement, said city offi-cials decided to settle the case after their attorneys reviewed recent federal court free speech decisionsŽ and reconsidered their position.City officials said the citys insurance carrier spent $41,854.53 to cover city legal fees in this case, plus the $15,000 settlement paid to the homeowners.Girone did not reconsider his opinion of the painting, however.Asked by a reporter what he thought of it, he first quipped, No comment,Ž but then offered, Everybody has their view on art, and I have my view, Miss Nemhauser has her views, and we respect everybodys views.ŽAttorney Jeremy Talcott of the Pacific Legal Foun-dation, who represented Nemhauser and Jastrzebski, said the settlement included everything he and the homeowners asked for and that regardless of any personal opinions about the mural, the citys main obligation is to make sure the codes are constitutional.We felt the sign code was unconstitutional both because it was over-broad and also, that it was vague. As written now, almost anything can be considered a sign which prohibited far too much speech and made it hard for citizens to know what behavior was prohibited,Ž Talcott said. We hope the revised sign code addresses those issues.ŽAs for completing and sealing the mural, Barrenechea said he hopes to get started as soon as possible.He has 180 days to do so, according to the settlement. Big day for the arts... a Starry Victory,Ž he wrote on Facebook.

[WHITNEYLEHNECKER/DAILY COMMERCIAL] Vladimir Putin at a summit press conference Monday, had prompted blistering, bipartisan criticism at home.Trump took to Twitter early Wednesday to defend the meeting, promising big resultsŽ from better relations with Russia and hitting back at haters.Ž In a follow-up tweet, Trump wrote that Russia has agreed to help in delicate negotia-tions with North Korea.Lawmakers have been sounding the alarm over fresh interference by Russia as they push to fortify U.S. election infrastructure ahead of the midterm elections.Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., urged colleagues to set aside their differences over the 2016 election and join to prevent another crisis.Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., is pushing legislation with Democratic Sen. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland to slap Russia or other countries with sanctions if theyre caught purchasing election ads, using social media to spread false information or disrupting election infrastructure. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has not committed to voting on the bill but cited it as a possibility.Amid bipartisan condem-nation of Trumps embrace of Putin, the president delivered a rare admission of error Tuesday. He backed away from his public undermining of American intelligence agencies, saying he misspoke when he said he saw no reason to believe Russia had interfered in the 2016 U.S. election. The sentence should have been, I dont see any reason why I wouldnt, or why it wouldnt be RussiaŽ instead of why it would,Ž Trump said Tuesday of the comments he had made in Helsinki. But that didnt explain why Trump 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 cre-dence 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.

Ive got a problem with my local grocery chains, Aldi and Publix. I buy lots of groceries from them, but they dont buy any of the lectures or writing that I do for a living. The balance of trade is horrible. I am thinking about speaking to the managers at both places and asking, if not demanding, that they arrange for me to deliver some lectures on the economy in their stores. Darn it. I have a similar problem with the local laundry and drug stores. I regularly have prescriptions filled and clothes cleaned. But do they ever offer to buy a policy analysis or lecture from me? Never! Of course, there are others that buy a lot more from me than I do from them. I have a positive balance of trade with George Mason University and Elliott-Davis, PLC, a regional accounting firm. Both employ me for lectures and research, even though I dont buy anything from them. Thats the way it should be with all my suppliers. But what if Aldi, Publix, the laundries and drug stores turn a deaf ear to my demand that they bring my trade deficit with them into balance? What if they just look at me like I am crazy when I tell them that they should buy as much from me as I do from them? If that happens, I suppose I could demand that they raise their own prices. Yes, Ill show them. Better yet, why not place my own tariff on their goods? For every dollar I spend, Ill throw a quarter down the storm drain outside, making products 25 percent more expensive (at least for me). And of course, I will buy less as a result. Buying less means that I will have to plant a garden, dry clean my own clothes, and find some way to get by with fewer prescriptions. Maybe aspirin will help. Of course, this will leave me with less time to lecture and do research, which means that my income will fall. But so what! I will have made progress in bringing the various personal trade accounts that Im currently losingŽ with my preferred suppliers into balance or better yet into a surplus. And I will have proven that these big suppliers cant push me around. They will see that I can produce food, too, that I can wash and iron, and that I might even be able to substitute exercise for heart medicines. Of course, I will be poorer and so will they. In fact, if everyone balanced their trade accounts, we would all be poorer. Maybe this is the lesson that our president is trying desperately to teach us. By placing tariffs on goods from suppliers who sell us more than we sell them, and having us suffer the consequences, he is generously teaching us that we will all be better off, collectively, in a world where trade is free. Bruce Yandle is a distinguished adjunct fellow with the Mercatus Center at George Mason University and dean emeritus of the Clemson Universitys College of Business and Behavioral Sciences.ANOTHER OPINIONMy trade de cit with grocery stores and the local laundryLast week was not a good one for anti-Trumpers, who include virtually all Democrats and most establishment Republicans. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein picked last Friday, just three days before President Trump was scheduled to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, to announce the indictment of a dozen Russian intelligence agents for their alleged involvement in the hacking of Democratic National Committee records. The timing seems more than coincidental. The real headline in Rosensteins announcement was that the special counsel has found no evidence any votes were changed in the 2016 election as a result of Russian meddling. That wont stop Trump haters, however, whose goal continues to be to see him impeached, or quit, or indicted, or not run for re-election, because like someone who cant give up on an old flame, they seem unable to get over the fact that Hillary Clinton isnt president. President Trump tweeted from Scotland before heading to his meeting with Putin: The stories you heard about the 12 Russians ... took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administration. Why didnt they do something about it, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the FBI in September, before the Election?Ž President Obama ridiculed Donald Trump in 2016 for suggesting a U.S. election could be influenced by a foreign power. No serious person out there ... would suggest somehow that you could even rig Americas elections,Ž Obama said. Nevertheless, he did somethingŽ by expelling 35 Russian officials as part of a larger set of sanctions after acknowledging that Russia did, in fact, try to influence the elections outcome. American hands are not completely clean when it comes to meddling in the elections of other countries. In a Dec. 22, 2016, interview on National Public Radio, Carnegie Mellon University researcher Dov Levin told host Ari Shapiro the U.S. has meddled in the elections of other nations more than 80 times between 1946 and 2000. Levin didnt include the Israeli parliamentary election in 2015. A congressional committee was told that the State Department, then run by Secretary John Kerry, who succeeded Hillary Clinton, paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers grants to an Israeli group that used the money to build a campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,Ž the Washington Times reported. Democrats also found themselves in the position last week of defending FBI agent Peter Strzok, who claimed the animus he and his mistress and fellow agent, Lisa Page, exchanged in emails about their hatred for Trump as well as Strzoks promise Trump would not be elected because we will stop himŽ had no influence on their ability to perform their jobs. That Strzok smirked in response to many of the questions from Republican committee members did not help his credibility. Trump haters will not give up no matter how many times they fail. Republicans are increasingly positive they will maintain their House and Senate majorities in the November election. Thats because consumer confidence is high due to strong economic growth and an unemployment rate that is at a 16-year low. Hate is not a policy, and the Democrats are so devoid of policies that they have run out of even bad ones. This oncegreat party used to have at least some leaders with integrity. Now they are only about destroying the president and grabbing power once again. What would they do with power if they got it? Just think President Hillary Clinton and imagine how everything good that is happening would never have occurred if she occupied the White House and was naming justices to the Supreme Court. Readers may email Cal Thomas at tcaeditors@tribpub.com.ANOTHER OPINIONThe week that wasnt for anti-Trumpers Cal Thomas At a time when a growing number of Democrats are calling for major policy changes such as Medicare for all, former Florida Gov. and U.S. Sen. Bob Graham is a throwback. I describe myself as being a raging incrementalist,Ž Graham said last week during a visit to the Gainesville Sun, one of the Daily Commercials sister papers in Florida. Graham was visiting Gainesville to promote the candidacy of his daughter, former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham, for the Democratic nomination for governor. Her recently released health-care plan includes support for Florida expanding Medicaid, providing coverage for about 500,000 Floridians who lack insurance but dont qualify for subsidies under the Affordable Care Act. The act currently provides federal funding for 90 percent of the expansions costs. Florida is one of 17 states that have failed to take advantage of that funding, although the number recently declined with Virginias decision to expand Medicaid. Bob Graham argued that Florida should do the same and the act should be fully implemented before considering further expanding health coverage. That way, he said, changes could be made to improve the measure and support built for additional steps that are needed. Of the five leading Democrats running for governor, only Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum is a vocal advocate of Medicare for all. But candidates outside Florida such as 28-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Costa, who upset a 10-term incumbent in a House primary in New York, have energized voters by backing such a change. Medicare and Medicaid were signed into law 53 years ago this month to provide health coverage for retirees and the poor. The Affordable Care Act was passed in 2010 to create protections for those who were being denied access to private insurance, provide subsidies for those who couldnt afford coverage and expand Medicaid. Floridas uninsured rate is now 15.7 percent but would fall to 11 percent if it went ahead with expanding Medicaid, according to research by the Urban Institute. But more must be done to cover everyone and lower costs for a U.S. health system that spends more than most industrialized countries on health care while getting worse outcomes. Proponents of Medicare for all say it would ultimately cut costs by reducing the bureaucracy and profit motive of the U.S. system. They say the hefty price tag to get the program up and running should be funded by raising taxes on corporations and the wealthy. Some have suggested reducing the age to qualify for Medicare to 50 as an incremental step. Perhaps a better idea would be allowing Americans under 30 years old to obtain Medicare coverage, ensuring a younger generation gets the lower-cost preventive care needed to avoid high medical expenses later in life. Bob Graham said an incremental approach might eventually lead to Medicare for all. Most countries have got something very much like Medicare for all, and that probably is the tide that were going to be riding on,Ž he said. But that doesnt mean that you start from five miles out at sea and sweep into the beach on one wave. You do it in several waves.Ž The Gainesville SunOUR OPINIONTake steps to expand health care coverage

Howard was recently named an assistant coach at Eustis High School. [GATEHOUSE MEDIA FILE] Eustis, Wildwood, Mount Dora and South Lake announce new leadersBy Frank Jolleyfrank.jolley@dailycommercial.comWith area schools set to resume in about a month, officials at several schools have spent time over the summer break rounding out the coaching staffs.Eustis, Wildwood, Mount Dora and South Lake are among those who have announced changes in a variety of sports, including football, baseball, boys bas-ketball and volleyball.At Eustis, head football coach Mike Hay added Jaye Howard to his staff.Howard was a defensive lineman at the University of Florida from 2008 until 2011. With the Gators, he totaled 131 tackles and was a member of UFs 2008 national championship team.Following his college career, Howard was chosen by Seattle in the fourth round (114th overall pick) in the 2012 NFL Draft. He was released by the Seahawks prior to the 2013 season and signed with Kansas City, where he spent four seasons.Howard had 122 career tackles, along with 7 quar-terback sacks and two fumble recoveries. His best season was 2015, when he had 57 tackles and 5 quarterback sacks.At Wildwood, Athletic Director Ryan Harrison said Joey McGuire has been named to replace McKinley Rolle as Wildcats football coach. Rolle, who led Wildwood to an undefeated regular season in 2017, stepped down in June to become linebackers coach at Garden City Community College in Kansas.McGuire spent the past three seasons as defensive coordinator at Lake Minneola and has more than 18 years of college and high school coaching experience.HIGH SCHOOL NOTEBOOKArea teams make coaching changes By Doug Ferguson The Associated PressCARNOUSTIE, Scotland „ The eve of the British Open felt like cramming for a final exam, a multiple choice one with no obvious answers.The wind that blows off the North Sea across the exposed links of Carnoustie has not been the primary concern during practice rounds. Players have a rea-sonable idea how far the ball travels in the air. They just dont know how far it goes on the ground.If you get it downwind and you hit that little flat draw and it gets running, it will go pretty much until it runs into something,Ž Justin Thomas said. Thats not entirely true.Thomas hit a tee shot on the third hole Wednesday afternoon that rolled across the humps in the fairway and kept right on rolling. It looked as though it would run into a bunker, or maybe even the handle of a rake leaning on the left edge of the bunker. It missed both and eventually came to a stop 232 yards away.His club off the tee was an 8-iron.Tiger Woods doesnt see many occasions to hit driver because of how far the ball is rolling across tight links grass that looks dead. It hasnt been this dry since Hoylake in 2006, when Woods hit only one driver all week and captured the Open for the third time. This might not be much different. Its just hard to keep the ball in play,Ž he said. 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 depen-dent on which way the wind blows. So the whole idea of these practice rounds is just to get a good feel for what Im going to do, and then adjust accordingly.ŽOthers are coming to a dif-ferent conclusion. Because while the links are as fast as ever, the rough is too thin, too wispy to wreak havoc. Dustin Johnson, the No. 1 player in the world, figures hell hit driver about half the time on the 15 holes that are not par 3s.

[JON SUPER/AP] Florida offensive lineman Martez Ivey speaks to reporters Tuesday during Day 2 of SEC Media Days. [GARY COSBY JR./ GATEHOUSE MEDIA SERVICES] ATLANTA „ They arent supposed to be here. OK, maybe they could have ended up in Atlanta on Tuesday as members of the Falcons, watching SEC Media Days on TV. But not here, representing the University of Florida and answering questions about despair and resolve. Cece Jefferson should be in the NFL. So should Martez Ivey. Based on their five-star, cant-miss ratings coming out of high school, a fourth year of college seemed about as likely as a rain-free July in Gainesville. You definitely have that thought in your head when you come out of high school with the recognition I did,Ž Jefferson said. But life sometimes gets in the way. Sometimes you have to face reality that it doesnt happen that way,Ž said Ivey. Ive faced that reality.Ž They both did. The starkness of that reality was a blow to the egos of two proud men. They asked the NFL what the league thought about their draft possibilities. The league told them to stay in school. Suddenly, all five of their stars were worthless. They had talked to their new coach and Dan Mullen had shared what he knew. He also shared this: Wed love to have you back and we want to help you make a sound decision. But this is how this program is going to be in the future.ŽIvey, Je erson taking on leadership role for Gators Pat Dooley British Open at Carnoustie presen ts tough test with no clear answersSan Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard handles a ball before an NBA basketball game against the Phoenix Suns in San Antonio.

LOS ANGELES RAMS „ Agreed to terms with WR Brandin Cooks on a “ ve-year contract extension.Canadian Football LeagueWINNIPEG BLUE BOMBERS „ Signed DB Abu Conteh to the practice roster.Texas Rangers starting pitcher Cole Hamels th rows to a Los Angeles Dodgers batter during the “ rst inning of a baseball game in Los Angeles. [JAE C. HONG/AP FILE] By Rob MaaddiThe Associated PressFrom aces to closers, pitchers will be on the move this month.Teams trying to make a push for the postseason are always looking to add new arms. There are some big names available on the trade market who can make a difference in the starting rotation or bullpen.Here are 10 pitchers „ five starters and five relievers „ who could be changing uniforms before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline:COLE HAMELS: The MVP of the 2008 World Series and NLCS has been through this before, going from the Phillies to the Rangers in July 2015. Hamels has a career-worst 4.36 ERA and he's already allowed 21 homers, but he's a proven lefty who could benefit from pitching away from a hitter-friendly ballpark. Hamels has a 2.93 ERA in 10 starts on the road. Texas may have to eat some of his salary, however. His contract includes a team option for $20 million next year or a $6 million buyout. Hamels also has a no-trade clause for 20 teams.J.A. HAPP: Another former Phillies lefty, Happ is in the final season of his contract with Toronto. He had three rough starts leading to his first All-Star appearance but has been a consistent starter in base-ball's toughest division for a few years. Happ is 10-6 with a 4.29 ERA and is averaging more than one strikeout per inning for the first time in his career in a season in which he's pitched at least 100 innings.MATT HARVEY: After rejuvenating his career in Cincinnati following his release from the Mets earlier this season, Harvey could find himself back in a pennant race. The righty is 5-3 with a 3.64 ERA in 12 starts.JORDAN ZIMMERMANN: He's 4-1 with a 3.79 ERA in 12 starts after an atrocious 2017 season. Zimmermann has the highest strikeout per-centage of his career (23.6 percent) but he's owed $50 million over the next two seasons, so the Detroit Tigers might have to pay some of his salary to deal him.NATHAN EOVALDI: Back on the mound after missing 2017 following Tommy John surgery, Eovaldi is 3-4 with a 4.59 ERA in nine starts for the Rays. The righty was roughed up in his final start before the All-Star break but pitched well in his previous three starts. He is only making $2 million this season, so he's a cheap option for budget-conscious teams.ZACH BRITTON: The hard-throwing lefty had 120 saves between 201416 before injury cut his season short in 2017. He's back healthy and hasn't allowed a run in 13 of his 15 appearances. Britton is making $12 million this season, and the Baltimore Orioles will have plenty of suitors.BRAD HAND: A twotime All-Star, Hand is signed through 2020 with a team option for 2021 and will be one of the most pursued relievers. He has 24 saves with 65 strike-outs in 44 ‡ innings, and the San Diego Padres will be asking for a lot in return.RAISEL IGLESIAS: The Reds have no urgency to move a 28-year-old closer who won't become a free agent until 2022, but Igle-sias can net solid prospects in a trade. He has 19 saves and a 2.36 ERA.High-priced, established pitchers could be on the move soon

DailyCommercial.com | Thursday, July 19, 2018 B3Open champion Brooks Koepka also is bullish on the big stick, saying the driver will come out on about eight or nine holes.Defending champion Jordan Spieth was considering his options on the final day of practice. On the 415-yard fourth hole, with a bunker on the right side of a dogleg left and another bunker farther out on the left side, he hit a fade over the right bunker. The other option is a long iron that splits the bunker.And then Spieth had another idea."Aim for the 4?" he asked his caddie, Michael Greller. He then motioned to the gallery about 60 yards off the tee to scoot back a bit, and Spieth blasted a shot over their heads toward a yellow patch of rough that sepa-rates the right side of the fourth green from the 15th tee. There's not enough deep grass to get into trouble.The answers will start arriving on Thursday when the 147th edition of the British Open „ and the eighth edition at Car-noustie „ gets started."I think there's not going to be one player in this field that has a game plan on Wednesday night and is going to stick to that game plan the whole way around for 72 holes," Rory McIlroy said. "It's just not going to happen with wind conditions, with pins. You start to feel a little bit more comfortable with a few shots, and you might start to take some on."Because the golf course is playing so firm and fast ... there's some guys that will see it completely different than the way I see it, and vice versa," he said. "It's going to be really interesting to see how it all plays out."Sandy Lyle of Scotland, who won the Open in 1985, gets it start with the opening tee shot today. Spieth, who will try to become the fifth player in the last 50 years to win back-to-back in the British Open, plays in the morning side of the draw.Among those playing in the afternoon are Woods, back at the Open for the first time since 2015, and Koepka, who will try to become the first player since Woods in that momentous summer of 2000 to win golf's two oldest championships.Carnoustie is regarded as the toughest of the links in any conditions, though it rarely sees this kind of yellow-andbrown conditions. The ball still rolls on brittle ground into the wind. Put the breeze at their backs, and some holes will have no more than a wedge into the greens.Johnson hit a 3-iron and a wedge into the par-5 14th hole, which measures 513 yards, during one practice round. He hit driver into the burn „ the one by the green „ on the 499-yard closing hole when he arrived Saturday. The next day, he scaled back and hit 3-wood and sand wedge.Even so, there is respect for these links."If it blows, it's going to be tough," Johnson said. "And with the ball run-ning, it runs right into the bunkers. So you're still going to have to hit good shots, and you're still going to have to play well. The golf course is tough. The par 3s are tough. Even with the ball running so far, the golf course is not playing easy." OPENFrom Page B1In addition, Mount Dora Athletic Director Zach Robinson said assistant junior varsity baseball coach Chad Drosieko was being named to replace head varsity coach Tim Tedeschi, who stepped down recently and returned to Georgia.Tedeschi spent two seasons with the Hurricanes, leading them to a 14-12 record in 2018 and a berth in the Class 5A-Region 2 quarterfinals. It marked Mount Doras first regionaltournament appearance since 2012.At South Lake, Sergio Rios was named volleyball coach and Stephen McLeod was tabbed as boys basketball coach. Softball camp slated for North Lake Community ParkBoombah Sports is holding an exposure camp for players in seventh through 12th grades.The two-day camp, set for July 27-28, costs $150 per day and includes five hours of instruction each day, along with an opportunity to be seen by college coaches from a variety of schools.For players who pay for both days in advance, the two-day charge is $250, and teams of nine or more players will be charged just $225 per player.Eustis High School softball coach Brittany Beall, who works with Boombah Sports, said numerous college coaches have committed to attend the camp, including those from: Florida A&M University, Jacksonville University, Northwest Florida State College, Central Florida State College, Miami-Dade State College, Daytona State College, Alabama State College, Eastern Florida State College, Palm Beach State College, Keiser University, Lake-Sumter State College, St. Petersburg College, and Pasco-Hernando State College.The camp will be held at North Lake Community Park in Umatilla. The deadline to register is Monday.For more information or to register, contact Beall at brittany.beall@myboombahsports.com or call 352-678-6060. Local baseball players make college commitmentsTavares shortstop Ariel Martinez announced recently that he has com-mitted to attend St. Leo University.Martinez, a rising senior, batted .394 for the Bulldogs in 2017, scoring a team high 29 runs and stealing 13 bases.His play earned him a spot on the Daily Commercial All-Area Second Team.Also, South Lake outfielder A.J. Shaver said he has committed to play at Florida State. Shaver, a member of the Daily Commercials All-Area Second Team, batted .449 with four homers and 25 RBIs for the Eagles in 2017.He also pitched for the Eagles in 2017, throwing 31 innings and recording a 3-2 record with 40 strikeouts and a 1.98 ERA.Former Tavares standout playing in Big 3 LeagueJermaine Taylor, arguably the greatest bas-ketball player in Tavares High School history, still has game.Taylor, a 2005 graduate of Tavares, is showing his wares with the Ball Hogs in the Big 3 League, a 3-on-3 professional basketball circuit.Local fans watch him Friday during a nationally televised broadcast from American Airlines Arena in Miami. The Ball Hogs will play Killer 3s at 8 p.m., with the Ghost Ballers playing Tri-State afterwards.Both games will be tele-vised on FS-1.At Tavares, Taylor averaged 25 points and 11 rebounds as a senior and was the Class 3A Player of the Year. He was named to the Class 3A All-State First Team.Following his prep career, Taylor attended the University of Central Florida and became one of the most prolific scor-ers in school history. He is third on the Knights all-time scoring list with 1,979 points, and he aver-aged 26.2 points per game as a senior.Taylor was selected with the 32nd overall pick by the Washington Wizards in the 2009 NBA Draft. He was traded to Houston in a draft-night deal.In 65 games „ 39 with Houston and 26 with Sac-ramento „ between 2009 and 2011, Taylor averaged 5.4 points per game. He had preseason tryouts with Minnesota in 2012 and Cleveland in 2013, and played overseas as well as in the NBA Development League. CHANGESFrom Page B1back at what happened would not be worth his time, and that Leonard was a good teammate throughout his tenure in San Antonio „ simply said he hopes the move works out for everyone involved.Kawhi, obviously, worked very hard to become the player he is,Ž Popovich said in San Antonio, a couple of hours after the trade became official when the teams got approval on the terms from the NBA. Our staff worked very hard to help him get there. We wish him all the best as he moves on to Toronto. I think hes going to be great.ŽLeonard was the 2014 NBA Finals MVP and had been with the Spurs for seven seasons, averaging 16.3 points, though was limited to just nine games last season because of a leg injury. DeRozan has been in the league for nine years, all of them with Toronto, and is a career 19.7 point-per-game scorer.DeRozan has led the Raptors in scoring in each of the last five seasons. He was key to Toronto winning 59 games and securing the No. 1 seed for the Eastern Confer ence playoffs last season. But after get-ting swept in the second round by Cleveland, the Raptors decided massive changes were necessary „ first the firing of coach of the year Dwane Casey, and now the trading of a perennial All-Star who once famously declared I am Toronto.ŽDeRozans initial reac-tion seemed to be one of anger and frustration.Aint no loyalty in this game,Ž DeRozan wrote in an Instagram story that appeared in the wee hours of Wednesday, around the time that ESPN and Yahoo Sports reported that the trade was approaching the imminent stage, several hours before it was final-ized. Sell you out quick for a little bit of nothing ... .ŽDeRozan did not specifically reference the trade in that post, but his message didnt exactly need translation. Raptors president Masai Ujiri has been traveling in Africa and was not immediately available for comment.Not only is the trade huge, its potentially risky for both teams.Leonard hasnt played since January because of the somewhat mysterious right quadriceps injury „ and the level of severity was something that even some of his now-former teammates reportedly questioned last season while San Antonio was trying to qualify for the Western Conference playoffs. The Raptors clearly arent worried about Leonards status, and Popovich indicated Wednesday that Leonard has recovered suffi-ciently enough to play.During the 2016-17 season, he averaged a career-best 25.5 points and was third in the MVP voting. When healthy, there may be no better two-way player in the game.And that makes him worth the risk for Toronto.Leonard can be a free agent next summer. When he asked the Spurs for a trade weeks ago, it was made clear that he wants to play for the Los Angeles Lakers „ a team that landed LeBron James earlier this month to lead their planned rebuild back into a con-tender. That means the Raptors are entering into this deal knowing that they could have given up a star like DeRozan for someone who might not be in Toronto for long.Popovich and Leonard met last month, but nothing the Spurs could say apparently changed Leonards mind about wanting a trade. Attempts were made to see what would be best, and in the end this trade appeared,Ž Popo-vich said. We felt that this was the way to go.ŽDeRozan and Leonard are expected to be on the court together next week in Las Vegas when USA Basketball convenes a national team training camp.That teams coach? Gregg Popovich.I look forward to it,Ž Popovich said.Green, a career 40 percent shooter from 3-point range, said he wanted to thank Popovich and Spurs general manager R.C. Buford for what theyve done for him over the years.I have many great memories that I will take with me,Ž Green said in an Instagram post. Through the ups and downs youve always made me feel SPECIAL. I want to personally thank Pop and RC for being the first to believe in me and give me the opportunity.ŽPoeltl has been a backup for his two NBA seasons, though is a 64 percent shooter so far in his young career. LEONARDFrom Page B1Really, they already knew. Film doesnt lie and 4-7 is a loud record. Floridas miserable season in 2017 wasnt helped by two guys who were supposed to be two of their better players. They werent bad. But they werent great. Obviously,Ž Jefferson said, the fourth year was something I needed.Ž Because they kind of knew theyd be back all along. Ivey knew in the first quarter of the blowout loss to Georgia. 21-0, I knew that for a fact,Ž said the senior tackle of the score after one quarter. I couldnt go out that way. We gotta flip the script. I get a chance to leave a different legacy than what we left last year. That was definitely a part of it. I couldnt leave on 4-7.Ž Jefferson felt the same way a week later when the Gators were embarrassed by Missouri. Don't forget, the head coach who recruited them both had been fired in between those gems. After that Missouri game, thats when I kind of realized, Cece you aint ready, Ž Jefferson said. You need to come back, give this another year. You need to develop more and learn more about football.Ž Learn how to be a leader. They were looking at me as a leader and I didnt know what to do myself,Ž Jefferson said. I was kind of stuck. I dont want to feel like that again.Ž Same for Ivey. Two seniors who shouldnt be at UF now need to really BE at UF. When Mullen told these players about 100-percent commitment, the leadership element was a part of it. They both have played a lot of football,Ž Mullen said. Theyve been through a lot and a lot of guys on the team look up to them. They need to set the bar, set the standard for the team.Ž He didnt want them to come back and wonder if they should have taken the leap and hoped for the best. If you make a decision be all in one way or the other,Ž Mullen said. If you want to stay, be all in. One good thing with both of them, I dont think I have seen one day where they werent all in.Ž Jefferson, rehabbing his shoulder after surgery in the spring game. Ivey, in the best shape of his life. Here in Atlanta, talking about the fire that burns within them to make Florida great again. Last year hurt. They can still feel the pain. And they can do something about it. If Florida is going to turn it around quickly, Ivey cant be the player he has been for three years. He has to be better. When hes healthy, Jefferson should be a perfect fit for coordinator Todd Granthams 3-4 defense. He has to be. And both guys „ two of the more popular players on the team „ have to be more than buddies to their teammates, Maybe it has already started. Because they saw what happened last year, how the disaster of the offseason turned into a disaster of a season. Weve just been around each other more often,Ž Jefferson said. Its more of a family feel. Ive told guys, If you need anything, man, let me know. You don't need to do anything to jeopardize your future. Ž The new togetherness came from a day after a workout when the players started talking about the misery of 2017. Everybody one day just got fed up,Ž Jefferson said. Thats not the way that season was supposed tobe.Ž Its a good sign that there seems to be a new resolve with the players we have talked to all summer. It seems to have been translated into summer workouts and behavior. But it still has to translate to the field on 12 Saturdays. After all, Martez Ivey and Cece Jefferson were here Tuesday for a reason.

[FACEBOOK] Plenty of music and food, a mystery, and some cool cars are on displayBy Ed SymkusMore Content NowJohn Callahan was born in 1951, started drinking regularly around 1964, was a passenger in a car accident that left him a quadriplegic in 1972, joined Alcoholics Anonymous in 1978, and died in 2010. Somewhere in there, probably in his high school days, he started drawing. Much later in life, after he began the AA 12-step program, his drawing talent kicked in, taking the shape of offbeat and acerbic cartoons, got him published, and made him famous. But his whole life was a very bumpy ride. Gus Van Sant's telling of the story keeps viewers enthralled by the sheer audacity of the film's structure „ it's all over the place in flashbacks and flashes forward, and it doesn't care much about chronology „ and by the powerhouse performances from Joaquin Phoenix as Callahan and the initially unrecognizable Jonah Hill as Donnie, his bearded, long-haired, laidback and charismatic AA sponsor. The film's long-winded title „ "Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot"„ comes from Callahan's autobiography, the title of which he lifted from one of those cartoons that depicted a sheriff and his posse looking at an overturned wheelchair, and the sheriff saying that line. Van Sant could have chosen so many places to start, but he went with an AA meeting, where Callahan was one of six members who would sit around, under the guidance of Donnie, telling their own stories. "The last day I walked, I woke up without a hangover," says Callahan to them. Then, before it's made clear just how complex the film is going to be, he's repeating the same line, with the same inflections, to a different group of people„ from a stage, where they've come to hear him lecture or, more appropriately, give a sort of spoken word concert. Then the film flashes to that last day, when he woke up without the hangover, bought a pint of whatever, and drank it on the sly„ he was always doing his drinking in secret. In ensuing flashbacks to the story he's telling, Callahan meets a man named Dexter (Jack Black) at a party where they both get to drinking to excess and taking Story of cartoonist John Callahan a eld day for actorsJohn Callahan (Joaquin Phoenix) gets some laidback advice from his AA sponsor (right) Donnie (Jonah Hill).

We were actually still trying to digest last years overstuffed Humanz.Ž And shouldnt we be wary of a new release so close to that 26-song project? After spending time with The Now Now,Ž the answer is yes „ yes, indeed. The 11-track collection includes some of Gorillazs funkiest riffs and also some of the weakest tunes in the bands catalog. The Now NowŽ has basically two speeds „ up-tempo, synth-washed EDM and maudlin, half-thought-out ballads. The bands signature approach „ dizzying levels of collaboration with cool guests „ isnt present here. Other than George Benson, Jamie Principle and Snoop Dogg, the Rolodex is thin. That thinness isnt apparent with the album opener, Humility,Ž a blissed-out summer jam enlivened by Bensons funky guitar work. Snoop Dogg also returns to Gorillaz for a terrifically slinky portrait of Hollywood.Ž And on the high-tempo Sorcererz,Ž lead singer Damon Albarns vocal effects make him sound like an old blues legend. Another standout is the mostly instrumental Lake Zurich,Ž a disco throwback with some of the best cowbell ever recorded in this century. Seriously. But its not clear what the poor state of Idaho did to deserve Idaho,Ž a turgid, overwrought mess. KansasŽ seems like it was written in 10 minutes while absentmindedly waiting for a bus, and Fire FliesŽ manages to be both clumsy and bland. One PercentŽ is virtually unlistenable.Gorillaz mix it up with new album The Now NowGorillaz (Warner Bros.) MUSIC REVIEW BOOK REVIEW By Ann LevinThe Associated PressIf you had to identify a single theme in Anne Tylers latest novel, it would be the importance of creating a surrogate family if your biological one is irretrievably broken. And also the way traumatic events, such as divorce, abuse and abandonment, reverberate from generation to generation, regardless of how well-intentioned the principals may be. Consider Willa Drake, the protagonist of Clock Dance.Ž The novel begins in 1967 when Willa is 11, going door to door selling candy bars to raise money for her school orchestra. When she gets home, she discovers that her mercurial but charismatic mother, whos been known to slap Willa across the face and shake her younger sister, Elaine, like a doll, has walked out again, leaving Willa effectively in charge of a helpless 6-year-old along with their meek but reliable father. Then the story jumps ahead to 1977, when Willa is a junior in college, about to be engaged to a senior named Derek who is the opposite of her dad: outgoing, athletic, short-tempered and pretty oblivious „ especially to Willas needs, including her desire to finish school before getting married. Still, it was tempting,Ž she thinks, to consider the adventurousness of throwing everything over to marry Derek.Ž Fast forward 20 years. Willa, 41, is a widow with two teenagers. Her mother is dead. Elaine has all but disappeared from her life. Her father barely answers his phone. She wonders if her own sons will keep in touch when theyre gone. She had tried her best to be a good mother „ which to her meant a predictable mother.ŽTylers new novel is about second chances Clock Dance: a NovelBy Anne Tyler (Knopf) MUSIC & BOOKS B52s at 4080s icons are touring on their anniversary „ well, sort of By John CarucciThe Associated Press The B-52s are celebrating their 40th anniversary this year. But they also may celebrate it next year. That is, if they havent already hit the milestone. Theres no fuzzy math here „ its a just matter of which date adequately represents the origin of the band, which began in Athens, Georgia. Vocalist Fred Schneider considers 2018 as their ruby anniversary. This is 40 years since our first single came out,Ž Schneider said. That was the year they released the song, Rock Lobster.Ž The bands other vocalist, Kate Pierson, interprets their anniversary a bit more liberally. We started in 1976 jamming and we played our first show on Valentines Day 1977, so we can mark 40 from there or we can mark 40 from 1979 when we did our first record,Ž Pierson said, referring to their eponymous album. Then she added: Its flexible. Were milking the 40 anniversary because its flexible.Ž While the actual date may be a Cosmic ThingŽ „ just as the title of their fifth album and hit song „ theres no discrepancy that their reputation as the worlds greatest party bandŽ has thrived since the late 1970s. Yet, while their sound remained upbeat, the band had some dark days, most notably the death of founding member Ricky Wilson, who succumbed to AIDS in 1985. He is the older brother of vocalist Cindy Wilson. Theres always ups and downs in 40 years. And Rickys death in 1985 was definitely a point where we thought we wouldnt go on. People always ask, Did you envision that you would have gone on for 40 years? You know, that seemed like the end,Ž Pierson said. Instead, they rebounded with Cosmic Thing,Ž and scored their most successful album, and biggest hit single, Love ShackŽ in 1989.

DEAR ABBY: I was widowed seven years ago. When my husband died, I thought it was the end of my suffering. It had been a mentally and physically abusive marriage for 30 years. We were complete opposites and were always nancially stressed. I have decided to start dating again. I want to meet someone and hopefully feel loved. I joined a dating website, but the men on it look disturbed and creepy. I have no friends, and I feel like I'm dying. I'm 57. Where are all the good men? I am at a loss. My boss told me I should consider dating women since I have had no luck meeting men. She is pushing me into meeting her lesbian friend. Her friend was in an abusive marriage, and her husband is no longer in her life. Abby, I'm shocked that she would even suggest it. I'm considering quitting my job because it's awkward being around my boss. She started joking about it with other co-workers until I told her to stop bringing up the subject. Even though she has curbed her tongue, the fact still remains that my co-workers know she wanted to match me with a woman. I cringe working around her and want to crawl under a rock. Please help. -LONGING TO BE LOVED DEAR LONGING: It's time to join some different dating sites and enlarge your pool of dating prospects. However, when you do, keep in mind that your marital history may have negatively affected your judgment about men. "Dating" does not carry with it a guarantee of love. Your relationship with your husband should have shown you that. Also, because a man doesn't photograph well does not mean he's disturbed or creepy. (One woman's creep can be another woman's Prince Charming.) That said, if I ever heard about creating a hostile work environment, what your boss did is a textbook example and should have been discussed with HR. "Joking" about an employee's sexuality is considered to be both discriminatory and a form of sexual harassment. Her behavior was beyond the pale, and you should start looking for another job. DEAR ABBY: My 47-yearold son is employed at a prestigious university. His position involves a considerable amount of travel. Over the years, he always emailed us his travel plans along with ight information. Lately, he tells us when and where he is going but omits the ight, hotel information, etc. When we ask, our requests are ignored. When we tell him we think it's irresponsible for him not to share this information, his response is, "My secretary has the information if there are any problems." We always give our children our travel information, ights, hotels, etc. when we travel. Our question is, are we out of line for wanting this information from him? -LOVING PARENTS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE DEAR PARENTS: You are not out of line for wanting the information; you are out of line for insisting your adult son give it to you over his objection. Your son is 47. He is no longer a child. It's time to back off. 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 CRYPTOQUOTE HOROSCOPES TODAY IN HISTORY DIVERSIONS HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR THURSDAY, JULY 19, 2018:This year you will have a desire to be fair and personable. You also will be more insightful, and will look at each situation with depth. If you are single, you draw many people toward you. You might not nd someone who can deal with your multifaceted personality, unless he or she enjoys that kind of diversity. If you are attached, the two of you could have a wonderfully intense relationship this year. Make sure you have plenty of one-onone time together. SCORPIO understands your intensity.ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Confusion marks your communication with others right now. You might not be sure what is being said or what the other persons intent is. You also might hear certain wild assumptions. Opt to be responsive. Your intensity soars as you relate to others directly. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Dive into your work and get as much done as possible. Confusion surrounds a friendship or the process of getting to a specic goal. You might want to step back and take an overview. Are you taking the shortest path? Ask questions, if need be. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) You are full of energy. You also are more irtatious than usual. Be careful about mixing work with pleasure. Your attitude is likely to change, depending on what type of situation you are dealing with. Getting serious could be difcult. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) You might wonder if it would be best to stay close to home, or retreat out of the limelight. You have a lot of work to accomplish. Though a lot of what you are doing could be tedious, you will do what must be done by the end of the day. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Stay centered, despite some confusion around you. You might not know which way to go but know that you will gure it out. You experience tension between your personal life and your professional life. Curb a tendency to go overboard. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Your spending easily could get out of control. You will want to indulge in some way, but problems could come up if you give in. Pressure builds, as you try to make all sides agree or at least get on the same page. Make sure you all have the facts.LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) You might feel as if you are out of sync with others. You need to gain greater clarity when dealing with others, especially if you have a nancial tie to them. You could be exhausted by someones vagueness. You sense tension building around you. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You perk up later in the day. Someone condes in you about how he or she feels. You could be hearing quite a story about an investment that you are considering. Do not take this persons tale as fact, as you could hear a great deal of exaggeration. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Use the daylight hours to the max. You will have more energy in the morning, and can deal with difcult situations. A disagreement exists between you and others. You might nd it impossible to come to an agreement at this point in time. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22JAN. 19) Reach out to someone who is an expert on a topic that you are interested in. You could experience a sense of accomplishment later in the day. You might want to thank several people, but ultimately you are the person who instigated the changes. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Do not push so hard to accomplish what you want. If you get more information, it will only add to your self-condence. Read between the lines in a discussion. Note what is not being said, and understand where others are coming from. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Reach out to a partner and have a discussion. Hopefully, the two of you will brainstorm well together and nd workable solutions. You also could pick up a hot tip. Listen to what is being shared more fully. You know what you want; go for it.

TODAY'S HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY: On July 19, 1980, the Moscow Summer Olympics began, minus dozens of nations that were boycotting the games because of the Soviet military intervention in Afghanistan. ON THIS DATE: In 1943, allied air forces raided Rome during World War II. In 1969, Apollo 11 and its astronauts, Neil Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin and Michael Collins, went into orbit around the moon. In 1979, the Nicaraguan capital of Managua fell to Sandinista guerrillas, two days after President Anastasio Somoza ed the country. In 1989, 111 people were killed when United Air Lines Flight 232, a DC-10 which suffered the uncontained failure of its tail engine and the loss of hydraulic systems, crashed while making an emergency landing at Sioux City, Iowa; 185 other people survived. In 1990, President George H.W. Bush joined former presidents Ronald Reagan, Gerald R. Ford and Richard M. Nixon at ceremonies dedicating the Nixon Library and Birthplace (since redesignated the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum) in Yorba Linda, California.

C6 Thursday, July 19, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comthe party to the streets. We're regularly reminded that the meeting with Dexter and the events that followed it„ which included a stranger saying to them, "You guys are in no condition to drive," just as they pile into Callahan's VW bug, with Dexter behind the wheel„ were on that last day of walking. For those who are squeamish about violence in movies, the good news is that Van Sant never shows the accident. But there are certainly some troubling emotional scenes in its aftermath, including Phoenix's spot-on delivery of dialogue and accompanying facial expressions upon waking in a hospital and learning what's happened to him. Yet even with the grueling sections, there are scenes where the funny stuff wins out. That comes in part from some of the cartoon panels, some of which have been animated here, as well as from some self-deprecatory dialogue and, most unusually, from scenes in which Callahan is seen zipping along sidewalks and across streets in his electric wheelchair. Why that's funny is unclear, but repetitions of it made me laugh. Other stories include how he manages to draw (he has limited finger control, but good wrists), his search for his birth mother (which could have been skipped), and the development of his romantic relationship with the nearly angelic Annu (Rooney Mara). It all keeps jumping back to the AA meetings, where bits of backgrounds from the other group members are told, and to revelations of the assistance from and friendship with Donnie. Moods range from uplifting to unbearably sad to funny, all of it riveting. The movie tells of Callahan's journey from a man living a self-destructive lifestyle to someone who finds success. Some will see it as the story of a tortured soul, while others will say it's about the triumph of the spirit. The truth is it's really both. Ed Symkus writes about movies for More Content Now.
