WEEKEND GLANCE By Ken Thomas and Paul WisemanThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump and European leaders pulled back from the brink of a trade war over autos Wednesday and agreed to open talks to tear down trade barri-ers between the United States and the European Union.But while politicians and businesses welcomed the deal Thursday, the agreement was vague, the negotiations are sure to be contentious, and the United States remains embroiled in major trade disputes with China and other countries.In a hastily called Rose Garden appearance with Trump, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said the U.S. and the EU had agreed to hold off on new tariffs, suggesting that the United States will suspend plans to start taxing European auto imports „ a move that would have marked a major escalation in trade tensions between the allies.Trump also said the EU had agreed to buy a lot of soy-beansŽ and increase its imports of liquefied natural gas from the U.S. And the two agreed to resolve a dispute over U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum.Treasury Secretary Steven Moment of calmBacking o auto tari s, US and EU agree to more talksBy Elliot Spagat and Colleen LongThe Associated PressSAN DIEGO „ The Trump administration said Thursday that more than 1,800 children separated at the U.S.-Mexico border have been reunited with parents and sponsors but hundreds remain apart, signaling a potentially arduous task ahead as it deals with the fallout of its zero toleranceŽ policy on people entering the U.S. illegally.There have been 1,442 children 5 and older reuni-fied with their parents in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody and 378 others who were released in other appropriate circum-stances,Ž including to other sponsors, the Justice Depart-ment said in a court filing.Still, more than 700 parents were deemed not eligible or currently not eligible, many of whom may have been Administration: 1,820 children reunited after border splitBy Tom McNiff tommcniff@dailycommercial.comTAVARES … A larger-than-life statue of Confederate General Edmund Kirby Smith is a year or more from landing at the Lake County History Museum in Tavares, but public and political support for bringing the monument here may be eroding already.On Tuesday, several dozen people appeared before the Lake County Commission to demand commissioners help put a stop to the effort out of concern that the statue will serve a a painful reminder of racial oppression, both during the Civil War era and even within the past 60 years.A black and white issueIn this “ le photo, Lake County History Museum Curator and President Bob Grenier explains how the museum tells the story of Lake County s role in the Civil War.

[MARK SCHIEFELBEIN/AP]By Marcio SanchezThe Associated PressIDYLLWILD, Calif. „ Fire stoked by hot and windy weather raged through a forest in far northern California on Thursday. In mountain communities east of Los Angeles, calmer conditions aided firefighters on the lines of a suspected arson wildfire that forced thousands of people to flee. California Gov. Jerry Brown on Thursday issued emergency proclamations in both Riverside County in the south and Shasta County in the north. The declarations authorize the state to rally resources to local government.In the north, new evacuations were ordered for communities in the wilderness recreation region near Whiskeytown Lake as that wildfire tripled in size to more than 31 square miles. It had already forced residents out of French Gulch, a hamlet dating to the Gold Rush.French Gulch resident Raquel Hines said she had two hours to evacuate and that others in the former mining town had as little as 30 minutes to leave.The community has faced two wildfires in the last two weeks, Hines said.Its terrifying. You know youre frightened a little bit because you dont know if youre going to come back to your house and the town is going to be different,Ž she told KRCR-TV.Cal Fire Unit Chief Mike Hebrard told the Record Searchlight newspaper that the blaze made a huge push overnight and that engine crews were in the community of Old Shasta trying to save structures.Hundreds of miles to the south, winds were absent over the fire in Southern Californias San Jacinto Mountains. But temperatures were rapidly rising, and forecasters said highs could hit 100 degrees. They also warned of possible afternoon wind gusts that could create dangerous fire conditions.Elsewhere in the state, a huge forest fire continued to grow outside Yosemite National Park. A total of 100 homes were still considered under threat in the San Francisco Bay community of Clayton, although firefighters had stopped the progress of a small fire there after one house burned.The blaze in the San Jacinto Mountains erupted Wednesday and quickly turned into a wall of flame that torched timber and tinder-dry brush. In a matter of hours, it grew to 7.5 square miles.About 3,200 people in the town of Idyllwild and nearby communities were ordered to evacuate. An estimated 600 homes were threatened.The fire was the largest of at least five that police believe were purposely set Wednesday by a man whose car was report-edly spotted at the starting point of the blaze in Riverside County, officials said.Brandon N. McGlover, 32, of Temecula was booked on suspicion of five counts of arson, state fire officials said. It wasnt clear whether he had an attorney.Authorities ordered residents to leave Idyllwild and several neighboring communities, home to about 12,000 people.William Blodgett of Idyll-wild said he couldnt get home because of the fire and had to wait along with others at a gas station in nearby Mountain Center „ until the fire hopped a highway and began to move in his direction.We were all peeling out of there as fast as we could,Ž he told KNBC-TV. It was apocalyptic.ŽHorses and other animals were taken to shelters, as were several hundred children who were evacuated from summer camps. About 200 were at a local high school serving as a shelter, KCAL-TV reported.The fire in the San Bernardino National Forest sent up a cloud 50,000 feet high that was so enormous it created its own weather in the form of lightning, the National Weather Service reported.Throughout the day, helicopters and planes dumped water and fire retardant that turned swathes of land and homes pink. Fire engines also were stationed to protect homes.Yosemite Valley, the scenic heart of the national park, was closed at noon Wednesday during the height of tourist season as smoke cast a pall on the region from a fire in the Sierra Nevada. The closure was heartbreaking for travelers, many of whom mapped out their trips months in advance to hike and climb amid the spectacular views of cascading waterfalls and sheer rock faces.Governor declares state of emergency as Calif. res rageA “ re“ ghter hoses down hot spots along Highway 243 on Thursday near Idyllwild, Calif. A fast-moving wild“ re tore through trees, burned several homes and forced evacuation orders for an entire mountain town as California sweltered under a heat wave and battled ferocious “ res at both ends of the state.

[TAIMY ALVAREZ/SOUTH FLORIDA SUN-SENTINEL VIA AP, POOL] By Jeff MartinThe Associated PressATLANTA „ In a legal showdown over voting rights in the political battleground state of Florida, a group of fed-eral judges asked probing questions Wednesday about how voting rights are restored for some former prisoners but not others.At issue is whether Floridas process of restoring voting rights to felons is unconstitutional. State officials defend their system, but critics call it arbitrary and unfair.Is voting an expression protected by the First Amendment?Ž Judge Darren Gayles asked during Wednesdays oral arguments in the case.Gayles was among a three-judge panel hear-ing the arguments at the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta.Floridas system is not unconstitutional, and the way the state decides whether felons can vote again after their incar-ceration should be left to states „ not the federal courts, Florida Solicitor General Amit Agarwal said during the hearing.But Jon Sherman, senior counsel at the Washington, D.C.based Fair Elections Center, told the judges that Floridas system is unfair.Floridas practice is inconsistent with the values of a democratic government,Ž Sherman said.In an interview after the hearing, he called it a free-wheeling, arbi-trary system.ŽVoting rights battle goes to federal appeals court By Cindy SharpCorrespondentTAVARES „ When Pisco Sour owner Jorge Bracamonte closed the doors to his Mount Dora Peruvian restaurant in June, he thought he was clos-ing the doors on his dream.

Rick Scott announces his bid to run for the U.S. Senate at a news conference in Orlando, Fla. on April 9. [AP PHOTO/JOHN RAOUX, FILE] This case is about the arbitrary process by which felons regain their right to vote,Ž Sher-man said. They basically have to beg for the right to vote.ŽSherman is among law-yers representing a group of former prisoners. They sued Florida Gov. Rick Scott last year after their applications were turned down.U.S. District Judge Mark Walker ruled that the states system is uncon-stitutional, with decisions possibly swayed by politics and racial factors. Walker ordered changes, but that decision was later blocked by the appeals court.Scott and other Florida Republican officials appealed to the Atlantabased appellate court, whose territory includes Florida, Georgia and Alabama. A spokesman for Scott has said that judges should interpret the law but not create it and that the governor will never stop fighting for victims of crime and their families.ŽAs many as 1.5 million felons remain disenfranchised by the ban, which is in Floridas constitution. Given that so many felons cant vote, the outcome of the legal drama could have political implications in Florida, which has a his-tory of elections decided by palm frond-thin margins. Walkers ruling kept the ban intact, but he chal-lenged the current system that requires a former pris-oner to wait between five and seven years before they can request their voting rights be restored.The governor and three elected Cabinet members then decide each request individually, subject to the governors unilateral veto. The felons are asked questions such as whether they have turned their life around,Ž Sherman said.Inmates in hearings have also been asked whether theyve apologized to their victims and, in one recent case, a black man was asked whether he had fathered children by differ-ent mothers.

The World War II and Korean War vet told officials he couldnt get a tank or an A-10 Warthog, but he still had hopes for a Humvee and the submarine model.Van Beck did not heed Commissioner Elise Dennisons warn-ing to get the citys permission before pur-chasing the jeep.Commissioners have voiced concerns about upkeep, maintenance, vandals and liability. They sent the matter to the citys advisory parks and recreation board, but that panel approved the idea.I dont like whats going on,Ž the 90-year-old said. I want the truth.ŽCommissioners did not take a vote on the jeep. It was consen-sus,Ž City Manager Al Minner said.Mayor Dan Robuck III said he was willing to give Van Beck the benefit of the doubtŽ that veterans groups would take care of the display. Van Beck has raised money, erected monuments and was the mover and shaker behind get-ting and restoring the helicopter.I want them to vote on it,Ž Van Beck said of the jeep. That way, he said, veterans can see who is for it and who is against it.Van Beck said he is not worried about being stuck with the iconic military surplus vehi-cle. I can sell it now for more than what I paid for it,Ž he said. JEEPFrom Page A3jurors. But Scherer sided with the media in her decision.While it is true that this case has gained vast and widespread media coverage, this fact alone does not demonstrate that closure of the state-ment is required,Ž the judge wrote. The fact that the instant matter may be considered high-profile does not in itself give the defendant the right to close the flow of information to the public.ŽCruz is charged with 17 counts of murder and 17 counts of attempted murder in the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. His attorneys have offered a guilty plea in return for a life sentence, but pros-ecutors are pursuing the death penalty.The statement Cruz gave to detectives after his arrest began shortly after 6 p.m. and lasted until about 5:13 a.m. the next morning, according to the judges order.

[CINDY SHARP/CORRESPONDENT] By Jim SaundersNews Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE … In a strongly worded ruling, a state appeals court Thurs-day backed Gov. Rick Scott in a dispute about his authority to appoint a replacement for a retiring Northeast Florida judge.A panel of the 1st District Court of Appeal overturned a lower-court decision that blocked Scott from appointing a replacement for Judge Robert Foster of the 4th Judicial Circuit, which is made up of Duval, Nassau and Clay counties. Jacksonville lawyer David Trotti filed a lawsuit to try to prevent the appointment, arguing that Fosters replace-ment should be chosen by voters during this years elections.Leon County Circuit Judge Charles Dodson sided with Trotti, issuing a preliminary injunction to prevent Scott from making an appointment. But the appeals court said Dodsons ruling conflicted with binding precedentŽ in a similar case that Trotti filed in 2014 because of a differ-ent judicial opening.Mr. Trotti strenuously argues that an injunction would serve the public interest by maintaining primacy of the election process,Ž said Thursdays ruling, written by appeals court Judge Clay Roberts and joined by judges T. Kent Wetherell and Timothy Osterhaus. We do not disagree with the general principle that the election process should be used when available. However, we cannot ignore that the Florida Constitution directs the governor to appoint a successor in situations like the one before us.ŽAttorneys for Trotti, who wants to run to replace Foster, have alleged that the outgoing judge engaged in electoral gamesmanshipŽ to try to clear the way for Scott to make an appointment.Foster was expected to leave office Jan. 7, 2019, which would be the end of his term, because of a mandatory retirement age. But on April 2, Foster sent a letter to Scott making the retirement effective Dec. 31, four business days ahead of schedule.Ruling backs governors power to appoint judgeAppeals court panel dismisses argument by potential candidate

PRINCIPALFrom Page A1 DailyCommercial.com | Friday, July 27, 2018 A5And while the County Commission doesnt have any actual authority over the museum, commis-sioners agreed to reverse their earlier support for the statue and encourage the museums board of directors to abandon the effort. Only Commis-sioner Josh Blake refused to waver in his support for it, saying that all history should be preserved for posterity, even remind-ers of dark events.In the wake of the meeting, key members of the museum board of directors were not dissuaded from bringing the statue here but hoped that tensions would subside and that, over the coming months, they could explain their vision for how it would be displayed.The statue has occupied a space in National Statu-ary Hall in Washington, D.C., since 1922. As the debate over Confederate symbols in public places intensified in recent years, the Florida Legisla-ture decided to replace it with a statue of civil rights leader and educator Mary McLeod Bethune.Bob Grenier, the museum president and curator who convinced a state panel to award the statue to Lake County, reiterated the day after the County Commission meeting this week that it would not be there to be venerated but rather would be part of a historic display.I think (opponents) think were celebrating the Confederacy. That has nothing to do with it, Grenier said. This is a historical artifact. All were doing is, our pur-pose is to educate. Were not doing this to hurt peoples feelings. Were trying to tell the story of this man and the period the good and the bad.If you want to take it away from the public squares, I understand, he added. But dont keep it away from the museums. Thats history. Dont erase history.Don Campbell, who also serves on the museum board, said he felt terri-ble that feelings are being hurt by this effort.I am completely mind-ful of who the statue is of, he said. I am not a fan of who Mr. Kirby was. Im a Yankee, born and bred. That was not our intent, to create a shrine to a Confederate general. It has always been about preserving this as an artifact.Leslie Campione, one of the county commis-sioners who reversed her support of the statue on Tuesday because of the hurt expressed by the dozens of opponents, appeared Thursday to be looking for a way to bridge the divide between oppo-nents and supporters of the display.In an email to the museum board of directors, she noted how passionate opponents were about the issue because so many bore the emotional scars of segregation.They believe that the community they love and live in is choosing to do something meant to make them feel those old, painful feelings of fear and intimidation again, she wrote. If you intend to go forward with your decision, I would ask before you take any fur-ther action that you reach out to those in opposition to see if you can find middle ground and reach an understanding that is fair and sensitive, and that demonstrates the true nature of what I believe is the majority of Lake residents, which is based on love and com-passion for each other.

But he said reaching a detailed trade agreement with the EU would likely prove difficult.The tone was friendlier than it has been. During a recent European trip, Trump referred to the EU as a foe, what they do to us in trade. The EUs Juncker said in March, after Trump imposed tar-iffs on steel and aluminum imports, that this is basi-cally a stupid process, the fact that we have to do this. But we have to do it. We can also do stupid.On Wednesday, Trump and Juncker said they have agreed to work toward zero tariffs and zero subsidies on non-auto-motive goods.Trump told reporters it was a very big day for free and fair trade and later tweeted a photo of himself and Juncker in an embrace, with Juncker kissing his cheek.Obviously the European Union, as represented by @JunckerEU and the United States, as represented by yours truly, love each other!

A6 Friday, July 27, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comBy Barbara OrtutayThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Facebook faced a day of reckoning as its shares plunged Thursday in the companys worst trading day since going public in 2012. It was among the biggest one-day losses of market value in U.S. stock market history.The 19 percent drop in Facebook shares vaporized $119 billion of the companys market value in the largest one-day loss in market history. CEO Mark Zuckerberg alone saw his net worth fall by roughly $16 billion as a result.In a sign of just how bullish investor expecta-tions had been running, though, the collapse merely returned Face-book shares to a level last seen in early May. At that point, the stock was still recovering from an earlier battering over a major pri-vacy scandal.Late Wednesday, Facebook warned that its revenue growth will slow down significantly for at least the remainder of the year and that expenses will continue to skyrocket.The earnings covered the companys first full quarter since the Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal erupted. But ana-lysts attributed the user growth shortfall largely to European privacy rules that went into effect in May, not to the furor over the political consulting firm with ties to President Donald Trump, which improperly accessed the data of tens millions of Facebook users.Shares closed down almost 19 percent, at $176.26.Facebook continues to grapple with big existential questions, ranging from its users privacy to tech addiction to how it deals with fake news and misinformation, hate speech and extremism on its service. At times, it has seemed as though Facebook cant quite decide where its values really lie. For instance, it continues to straddle the line between policing what users say and remaining a neutral platform in an increasingly divided world, and between protecting privacy while collecting as much information on its users as possible.Facebook faces a day of reckoning on Wall StreetThis March 29 “ le photo shows the Facebook logo on screens at the Nasdaq MarketSite in New Yorks Times Square.

A8 Friday, July 27, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comBy Mary Clare Jalonick and Chad DayThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ House Speaker Paul Ryan spoke out against an effort by a small group of conser-vatives to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Thursday, dooming the endeavor for now and easing a months-long standoff between House Republicans and the Justice Department.Ryan said the tussle over document requests between House Republicans and Rosenstein, who oversees the federal Trump-Russia investigation, doesnt rise to the level of high crimes and misdemeanorsŽ that could warrant impeachment under the Constitution. I dont think we should be cavalier with this process or with this term,Ž Ryan said. He also said he is encouraged by progress on the document production.Ryan made the comments a day after the group of 11 House Repub-licans sharply escalated the extended clash with the Justice Department by filing articles of impeach-ment against Rosenstein, who oversees special counsel Robert Muellers investigation.Their move late Wednesday came after months of criticism aimed at the department „ and the Russia investi-gation in particular „ from President Donald Trump and his Republican allies in Congress. Trump has fumed about Muellers probe and has repeatedly called it a witch hunt,Ž a refrain echoed by some of the lawmakers.Mueller is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether Trumps campaign was involved.The impeachment effort was led by North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows, the chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus who talks to Trump frequently and often defends him to colleagues.As Ryan voiced his disapproval, Meadows acknowledged that he didnt currently have the votes to pass the impeach-ment resolution and said he wouldnt use procedural maneuvers to trigger an immediate vote „ something he had threatened to do. The House left Thursday afternoon for a five-week recess.Instead, Meadows said he had a commitment from leaders to vote on holding Rosenstein in contempt of Congress when the House returns in Septem-ber if certain documents are still outstanding. The agreement came after dis-cussions on the House floor with Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert Goodlatte, R-Va., and the No. 3 House GOP leader, Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana.The contempt resolution would first have to move through the Judiciary Committee, according to Republican aides.Meadows said the fiveweek delay would give the department one last chanceŽ to deliver. He didnt rule out trying for an impeachment vote in the future.Now its in Rod Rosen-steins court,Ž Meadows said.Ryans tone was far different.We do not have full compliance, and we have to get full compliance, but we have been making tre-mendous progress to that point,Ž he said of multiple document requests.Meanwhile, Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended Rosenstein in a Boston speech, saying he has the highest confidenceŽ in his top deputy. Rosenstein has overseen the Russia investigation since last year, when Sessions recused himself following reports of his own meeting with the Rus-sian ambassador.Asked in May about rumblings that House Republicans might move to impeachment, Rosenstein was defiant.I think they should understand by now, the Department of Justice is not going to be extorted,Ž he said.Meadows, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan and the other Republicans who intro-duced the resolution have criticized Rosenstein and Justice Department officials as not being responsive enough as House committees have demanded documents related to the Russia inves-tigations inception and a now-closed investigation into Democrat Hillary Clintons emails.The five articles of impeachment would charge Rosenstein with failing to produce information, though the department has provided lawmakers with more than 800,000 documents. The resolution notes that Rosenstein was one of several department officials who approved what some Republicans say was improper surveillance of Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.The impeachment resolution also criticizes Rosenstein for refusing to produce a memo that outlines the scope of the investigation and questions whether the investigation was started on legitimate grounds.It is highly unusual, if not unprecedented, for lawmakers to demand documents that are part of an ongoing criminal investigation.At a House hearing last month, Rosenstein, along with FBI Director Chris-topher Wray, faced angry Republicans who alleged bias at the FBI and sug-gested the department has conspired against Trump. Still, some GOP lawmakers said they would draw the line at impeachment.Ryan opposes Rosenstein impeachment trySpeaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) meets with reporters Thursday on Capitol Hill in Washington, as lawmakers prepare to break until Sept. 4.

Just ask a conservative bastion like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. China, the EU, Mexico and Canada have already retaliated or announced plans to retaliate with billions of dollars in tariffs on American-made products,Ž the U.S. Chamber recently noted on its website. Tariffs imposed by the United States are nothing more than a tax increase on American consumers and businesses „ including manufacturers, farmers and technology companies „ who will all pay more for commonly used products and materials.Ž Well said. The reality is the U.S. economy is interconnected with the rest of the world. Its not the 1950s anymore. Consider this passage from Fair Shot,Ž a book by Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes: To build an iPhone, Apple sources precious minerals from the Congo and touch-screen glass from Taiwan, imports camera lenses from Japan and circuit boards from Malaysia,Ž Hughes wrote. It buys accelerometers from Germany and optical sensors from Austria. The company assembles all of these parts with labor in China and designs the devices from its headquarters in California.Ž World trade cant be undone with tariffs, not without considerable damage. Look no further for the harmful tariffs threatening the U.S. newspaper industry which is struggling against the loss of print revenue to the digital economy. A 30 percent tariff imposed on Canadian newsprint by the U.S. Department of Commerce „ at the behest of one business in the Northwest „ is being opposed by nearly the entire newspaper industry. For local and regional newspapers, which make up most of the nations dailies, another tariff-related cost increase would be devastating. Meanwhile, a trade war between the U.S. and China will hit U.S. consumers like a tax increase. Recently, The Wall Street Journal listed just some of the increased costs from Chinese tariffs „ including $23 billion in networking gear. The higher cost of materials from China could also hit Floridians who work in the boating and yacht industry. Florida businesses have already seen spiking costs from tariffs on imported steel and aluminum from Canada, Mexico and the European Union, reports the Tampa Bay Times. And Florida exporters could find lower demand for their products because of tariffs. Where will these tariffs stop? Who really knows? Thats what makes the current madness so scary. For instance, the president imposed 25 percent tariffs on $50 billion of products from China. So China slapped 25 percent tariffs on $50 billion of U.S. products. So now Trump plans to impose 10 percent tariffs on another $200 billion of Chinese goods. What exactly is the administrations plan? There isnt one. What should it be? Its simple. Rather than go it alone against the entire developed world „ including friendly trading partners like Canada, Mexico and Europe „ the Trump administration should be building alliances against Chinas unfair trading practices. The Trans Pacific Partnership was one attempt to build a trade alliance against China. But now that Trump has pulled America out of that alliance, the European Union is filling the gap. The ultimate goal ought to be to eliminate tariffs.OUR OPINIONTari s act like tax hikesLake County commissioners reversed their support for bringing a Confederate general statue to a local museum, telling an angry c rowd of critics on Tuesday that they would ask the Lake County Historical Museum not to display the statue after all. Heres what Facebook users had to say:So bc people are offended were not allowed to have a part of history in a museum? Seriously?Ž „ Ashley Marie Sanders Not fair to Southern whites to ignore their history when everyone else gets a place in the show.Ž „ Marty Whatley Leave the statue alone. It is part of history. People are trying to wipe out the history of this Country and think it will make things better. Wy dont people learn from the history and teach others the right way to do things?Ž „ Cora J Case This is getting a bit out of hand. Its not being paraded up and down the street. It is in a museum and museums are meant to teach people history. Erasing the Confederate portion from our history would be like erasing Holocaust memorials because it offends Jewish people. What happened was not in any way okay but it is part of our countrys history and should be in museum for our future generations to learn about.Ž „ Nikki Warren You do realize that this statue has no historical ties to Lake County? His native town of St. Augustine and Flager County rejected the idea of putting his statue there. Why bring it to Lake County?Ž „ Pernell Mitchell Its a very sensitive subject, however it is a part of history. Whether we like it or not it happened. This would be in a museum for those that want to go see it can, and those that dont want to see it dont have to. Its your choicebut taking the option away from those who are interested in learning about history is not right. Many do not support or agree with what happened, but againwe cant change historywe can only learn from it and make our country a better place for all. To live in peace and harmony should be our focus.Ž „ Kristie Chicarelli Shame on you Lake County Commissioners. This man is a part of Fl History and should be honored. How many of those people opposed have ever been to the museum? I bet none, heres a thought dont go to the museum. Bobby Grenier take the right stand display the statue proudly. Im ashamed for the first time in my life to be from Lake County. Thought we were made of better stuff.Ž „ Dawn Gosnell Diehl While the rest of the country is throwing away their trash, people here want to put it in a museum (a place I highly doubt many of you frequent). Those claiming it is part of history need to know their history.Ž „ Sammy Canosa Lets not forget about history. Lets not erase it either! So with that being said, lets put in order for a statue of Attorney Darden, the 1st African American attorney in Lake County. I think the confederate flag is part of history, as well as the Groveland Four and the historical story of Sheriff Willis McCall. So as this statue makes is way to Lake County after so many were against it „ including white citizens not just blacks „ lets make our way to the school board to ask them for the story of Willis McCall be taught in school.Ž „ Martinis McDuffie Way to cave in. Guess you better rename St Clair Abrams ave and Haines Creek. All named after Confederate veterans. News flash: Confederate veterans are considered American veterans. Years prior, there were cries to place statues in museums. Now it happens and now there are cries to prevent that. I called it.Ž „ Bryan Masters To read more comments about this story, go to www.facebook.com/ daily.commercial.FACEBOOK FORUM Shes a biggie, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez is, because this 28-yearold politician declared herself a socialist, beat a powerful New York City Democrat in a primary, is sure to go to Congress after the November election and is the future. I am talking about the socialist future, the future that could very well ruin America. It might not happen, of course, but Ocasio-Cortez is just one of a number of Democrats sufficiently confused and ambitious to be turning to a system that stuffs liberty in a bag while it locks the door on economic growth. This arises out of old instincts, but also because of the partys current, ineffectual muddle of what do we want and when do we want it. And dont forget that there is also political opportunity: Although they may not quite understand socialism, 50 percent of millennials are for it. The millennial vote will at one point be the biggest vote in America and its already powerful enough to have given oomph to the 2016 presidential campaign of one of Americas oldest hippies, the socialist senator named Bernie Sanders. Hes the guy because, for one thing, he not only wants to stick it to those big corporations (that happen to be crucial to our wellbeing), but promises to save the students from loan debt. He wants to make colleges free for all, although, sadly, they wont be free for taxpayers and the spending wont be kind to national debt. Here is something to keep in mind. Tuition is mainly as high as it is right now because of liberal enthusiasm for this loan idea enabling colleges and universities to get away with asking for however much money they wanted. Good intentions mixed with scrambled thought inevitably pave the road to penury, misery and worse, as in 100 million people being killed by in the 20th century by such socialist regimes as the Soviet Union, China and North Korea. Today, a foremost exemplar of starvation techniques is the socialist regime in Venezuela. In Western countries today, we know, socialism does not mean government owning most industries and indulging in Stalinist dictatorships, but more nearly exercising control through regulatory overkill and soft despotism.Ž As described by the 19th century author Alexis de Tocqueville, that would be government that hinders, represses, extinguishes, dazes and stupefies, reducing people to a timid herd of sheep. Freedom can go kaput, he said. Agreeing with him was a 20th century political genius named F.A. Hayek who fretted mainly about socialistic central planning in which a handful of experts substitute for competition and the choices of millions of consumers. Political power grows, individual power is diminished, markets are wrecked, promised benefits never show up, group identity matters more than merit and you are told not just what side of the road to drive on, but what your destination should be. In response to such criticisms, Sanders has said look at what the socialistic Scandinavian countries have done for the working man, and, yes, look and get it that these are actually capitalistic with a freer economy in Denmark than here, no minimum wage in any of them, lower corporate taxes than ours (at least before Trumpian tax reform), privatization of schools and the postal service in Sweden and cutbacks in spending. Sanders might note, though, that they still have expensive welfare programs and that, according to The Money Illusion, a couple with an income of about $70,000 in Sweden can pay a 60 percent income tax on top of a value-added tax. Thats what he wants in America? Capitalism is spreading worldwide, lifting hundreds of millions out of destitution, and President Donald Trumps tax reform and regulatory reductions have given a mighty push to economic progress. Blacks, for instance, have the lowest unemployment rate in history. Ocasio-Cortez responds that unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs.Ž What? Sorry, but thats what you get from socialists. Watch out. Jay Ambrose is an op-ed columnist for Tribune News Service.

A10 Friday, July 27, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comBy Terry SpencerThe Associated PressFORT LAUDERDALE An attorney for the family of an unarmed black man fatally shot by a white man in a Florida parking lot said Thursday that race is the reason no charges have been filed after the videotaped altercation.Attorney Benjamin Crump, who gained national prominence rep-resenting the family of Trayvon Martin after the black teens fatal shooting by George Zimmerman in 2012, said Michael Drejka committed cold-blooded murder in the death of Markeis McGlockton outside a Clearwater con-venience store on July 19.Drejka, 47, confronted McGlocktons girlfriend as she sat in the couples car with two of their chil-dren, ages 3 years and 4 months, because she was parked in a handi-capped-accessible space. McGlockton, 28, had gone into the store with their 5-year-old son.Britany Jacobs said Drejka was cursing at her. Video shows McGlockton exited the store and shoved Drejka to the ground. Seconds later, Drejka pulled a handgun and shot McGlockton as he backed away.We all know race is a factor in this case, Crump said at a news conference outside the Clearwater courthouse. If McGlockton had been white and Drejka black, does anyone doubt that he (Drejka) would have been arrested and taken to jail, if he would have not been shot right there in the parking lot?Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said last week that under Floridas stand your ground law, Drejka was defending himself, and Gualtieri doesnt believe that he could be charged. He turned the case over to the state attorneys office for a final decision. That office declined to com-ment Thursday.Drejka did not answer a phone number listed for him Thursday, and no attorney has come for-ward as his representative.Gualtieri, who is an attorney, says Drejka told investigators he feared he was about to be attacked again when he fired. Under the stand your ground law, people can use deadly force if they believe they are in imminent danger of death or great bodily harm and have no obligation to retreat. Under a change made by the Legislature last year, prosecutors must then prove the law doesnt apply.The soundless store security video shows the altercation began about a minute after Jacobs pulled into the handicapped-accessible spot. She told reporters last week McGlockton had just picked her up from her job as a nursing assistant, the parking lot was busy and they were only stopping for a minute. McGlockton and his oldest son got out and entered the store.Drejka pulled up in his SUV seconds later, parking perpendicular to Jacobs. Drejka got out, walked to the back of Jacobs car, looked at the license plate, and then went to the front, apparently looking for a handicapped sticker there. He appears to say something to Jacobs and points to two empty spaces nearby.He then walked to Jacobs window. He is speaking from about a foot away and gesturing with his hands. A man enter-ing the store about 15 feet away stops to look and a woman glances over.Attorney: Parking lot shooting cold-blooded murderClearwater case compared to fatal 2012 shooting of Trayvon MartinMarkeis McGlockton, far left, is shown in July 19 video surveillance in an altercation with Michael Drejka in the parking lot of a convenience store in Clearwater.

Stills: Ditch NFL anthem policyMiami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills does drills Thursday at the teams training camp in Davie, Fla.

[PHOTOS BY JIM TILLER/GATEHOUSE MEDIA SERVICES] Flagler Palm Coast football players run during conditioning drills on Wednesday. By Chris BoyleGatehouse Media ServicesNot wanting any of his play-ers to pass out, nor to incur the wrath of parents, Flagler Palm Coast football coach Travis Roland berates his players to drink lots of water every time they step on the field „ especially during summer conditioning sessions.Roland knows full well the perils of heat exhaustion. Back in the spring, he failed to heed his own advicewhile leading pursuit drillsand laterexperi-enced a near-disaster on his drive home from the school."I get off the exit, onto Wil-liamson (Boulevard), and I felt like a bus hit me," Roland said. "It felt like I had been drinking tequila for 4 hours."I get home, I'm super dizzy, I'm throwing up, my ankles are hurting real bad. ƒ Oh man, I drank three large Gatorades, like five bottles of water and a big 32-ounce Angel Food smoothie from Smoothie King. That's when I got it all back."Fortunately, Roland returned the next afternoon, and his players and fellow coaches let him have it. Assistants Brian Cox and James Hackett stuffed water bottles into his pockets for the entirety of practice. Now, Roland is able to look back and laugh. But he, like many, know that Florida's sweltering conditions „ with temperatures routinely in the 90s, and heat indexes hitting triple digits „ are no joke.Surviving the sunAs fall sports camps set to open, athletes endure sweltering Florida heat By Graham HallGateHouse Media ServicesGAINESVILLE „ Multiple Gators football players continue to face pos-sible disciplinary action from the University of Florida following an on-campus con-frontation involving police and airsoft rifles, a police report first obtained by First Coast News revealed.After the report surfaced Wednesday night, Florida coach Dan Mullen issued a statement on the eight play-ers named in the report.We were made aware of the incident when it occurred and immediately began fol-lowing campus protocol,Ž the statement read. This has been an opportunity for us to educate our players about the dangers and negative perceptions that can occur when conflict arises, and how important honesty and good decision making is.ŽAccording to the report, eight UF football players were involved in an altercation at Keys Residential Complex on the evening of May 28. Police were called to the scene after a witness reported seeing a suspicious person in the area. Upon arriving, the police report states officers saw more than 10 people arguing and holding weapons that resemble assault riflesŽ.The police report largely hinges on an account from an alleged gambler in the Gaines-ville area named Devante Zachery, 21, who told UPD he had a relationship with UF senior tight end Cyontai Lewis that Zachery described as a good relationshipŽ when the football team was winningŽ but would turn sour when Florida lost. Zachery would call Lewis and the team garbageŽ, according to the report, and would complain about losing money after betting on UF football games.The report states that on the night of May 28, Zach-ery and his friends waited for Lewis and several UF football players „ including freshman quarterback Emory Jones, wide receivers Rick Wells, Kadarius Toney and Tyrie Cleveland, defensive tackle Kyree Campbell and tight end Kemore Gamble „ at the Keys.Upon seeing Zachery, the football players left the scene and returned soon after hold-ing what Zachery described as some sort of assault rifleŽ, noting others were holding rocks and, in one case, a frying pan. A UF player later told UPD that a member of Zacherys group held a baseball bat and threatened he would sprayŽ the players if they came any closer.No charges after UF players in fake gun incidentSee PLAYERS, B3 See SUN, B3By Dan GelstonAssociated PressLOUDON, N.H. „ Danica Patrick starred in Super Bowl commercials that turned her into a mainstream celebrity. Aric Almirola has earned ringing endorsements from his peers for his driving ability.Patrick often mixed in workouts and cooking with her race weekend obligations. Almirola plays Hungry Hungry HipposŽ with his kids.But the widest gap between the two is not in personality but in how they handled the No. 10 car at Stewart-Haas Racing.The 34-year-old Almirola has already achieved more in one season (one top five finish, nine top 10s) driving the car as the retired Pat-ricks replacement than she did in five winless seasons (no top fives, seven top 10s) at SHR. And he is inching closer to victory lane. Almirola positioned him-self late to win Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway until he was derailed by a poor pit stop and then spun his tires on a restart that likely cost him his first Cup Series victory since July 2014. He also wasnt helped when SHR teammate Clint Bowyer stayed out with damage and hit the wall, bringing out the caution flag and wiping out Almirolas lead.Everybody keeps telling me, Youve got to lose some before you win some. So weve lost some,Ž Almirola said. Time to stop it. Time to go to victory lane. Were capable. We have a race team capable of doing it.ŽAlmirola and primary sponsor Smithfield Foods made the jump to SHR after one victory and 200-plus starts at Richard Petty Motorsports. Team owner Tony Stewart had known Almirola for more than a decade and was ready to give him the chance to complete in elite equipment.I feel like its fair to say that Ive had not good enough equipment as an excuse,Ž Almirola said. Well, now I have this opportunity here (at SHR) and equipment is not an excuse. We have the best of everything. We have everything we need to go out and compete for wins. Its up to me and my team.ŽAlmirola made an instant impact in his first start at the Daytona 500. He was running first with one lap left but was turned and sent spinning by winner Austin Dillon. Almirola faded to 11th and admitted to sleep-less nights over how he should have stood tall at the Great American Race.ŽAlmirola proving an able replacement for PatrickAric Almirola walks to his race car after being introduced before the start of the NASCAR Cup Series auto race Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, N.H.

With-out 60-90 days, I cant be definite.ŽThe goal was for Jus-tify to run in a major race this summer, likely the Travers Stakes at Sara-toga, and be pointed toward the $5 million Breeders Cup Classic on Nov. 3 at Churchill Downs. Instead, he was taken out of training earlier this month because of swelling in his ankle.The timing is bad for another start in 2018, and therefore, we have to retire him,Ž said Elliott Walden of WinStar Farm, which co-owns Justify. Like (2015 Triple Crown winner) American Phar-oah, we cant take the risk of running Justify as a 4-year-old. We all wanted him to finish his career in the Breeders Cup Classic, but it was not meant to be.ŽJustify won all six career starts, becoming the first horse since Apollo in 1882 to capture the Kentucky Derby after not racing as a 2-year-old. He won the Preakness and Belmont Stakes to become the 13th Triple Crown winner and second in the past four years after Bafferts American Pharoah.There was never a time when I rode him that I felt like I was going to get beat,Ž jockey Mike Smith said. There was no horse who could run with him without sacri-ficing themselves, and there was no horse who could come get him.ŽIn addition to the Triple Crown, the Ken-tucky-bred Justify won the Santa Anita Derby and retires with career earnings of almost $3.8 million.Triple Crown winner Justify leaves racingJustify (1), with jockey Mike Smith up, crosses the “ nish line to win the 150th running of the Belmont Stakes horse race and the Triple Crown in Elmont, N.Y.

DailyCommercial.com | Friday, July 27, 2018 B3By Matt HolzapfelCorrespondentLEESBURG „ Game 1 was arguably the best baseball the Lightning have played all season. Game two, not so much. The Leesburg Lightning (26-12) split a doubleheader with the Seminole County Scorpions (16-23) while look-ing their best and their worst at times in the same night.Leesburg kicked off Wednes-days doubleheader with a dominating 13-0 win over the Scorpions, riding the coattails of Joshua Shapiros gem on the mound and 17 hits by the offense. The lefty ace needed just 60 pitches to get through six innings of work, and his offense backed him up by scoring in every inning but the second.Frank Niemann was stellar, going 4-4 with two doubles and two runs. Niemann started early, singling to drive in Jay Prather in the top of the first inning to put the Lightning up 2-0. Leesburg was the away team for the opening contest, which was originally scheduled to be played in San-ford on Tuesday, July 24.The Lightning added two runs in both the third and fourth innings to open up a 6-0 lead on the Scorpions. Prather singled home Tanner Clark after Luke Brown scored on a wild pitch from Seminole County starter Jack Gallo in the third.Singles by Sean Mootrey, Tucker Rayburn and Luke Brown set the stage for the two runs in the fourth inning. The Lightning chased Gallo after just four innings, rocking the Scorpions starter for six runs on nine hits and three walks.After a Matthew Wiseman RBI double in the fifth, Leesburg used a six-run sixth inning to slam the door shut on Seminole County. Tanner Clark, Jose Crisostomo, Prather, Frankie Niemann and Sean Mootrey all got hits in the frame, while Walker McCleney and Matt Wise-man drew walks. McCleneys walk sealed a rare feat for the red-hot Lightning, as he was the last Lightning player in the lineup to reach base successfully, meaning that the entire batting order reached base in some form or fashion in the game. On top of that, every member of the black and gold that came to the plate scored at least one run, and all but three collected an RBI.Josh Shapiro finished the outing with a complete game (just six innings due to a mercy rule in the seven-inning game), one hit allowed and no walks. He narrowly missed a perfect game, when a Will Acuff single in the fourth inning was just out of the reach of first baseman Mootrey. The game marked Shapiros second win of the summer (2-1) and lowered his season ERA to 2.48.It gives us confidence,Ž Lightning Head Coach Rich Billings said of Shapiros versatility and consistency on the mound this year. Our guys play with so much confidence when hes on the mound because we know that hes going to give us a great chance to win a ballgame. Hes going to get quick outs; his tempo is awesome and hes just very efficient.ŽIn Game 2, the Lightning wasted no time taking a lead, scoring in the bottom of the first inning. Jose Crisostomo hit a two-out single and advanced to second on an errant pick-off throw from Scorpions starting pitcher Logan Collie. Prather picked up his first RBI of the game and second of the night with a single to right field during the next at-bat, putting his team up 1-0.Seminole County scored their first runs of the day and took their first lead thanks to a two spot in the top of the fourth inning. Kerry Carpen-ter started the inning with a lead-off double and later scored on an RBI groundout by Paxton Rigby. After back-to-back singles by Anthony George and Garrett Stillwell, Fausto Lopez earned a walk from Lightning starter Ethan Chavis to load the bases with two outs. Alex Ray hit a slow dribbler down the third base line and legged it out to first, reaching safely before Chavis could make a play and allow-ing George to cross the plate to make it 2-1 Scorpions.The Lightning were unable to muster a hit in the fourth through seventh innings and ended up dropping the game, 2-1.It was a little bit disappointing to see us have a letdown in game two, but it was nice to see the bats come alive in game one,Ž said Billings about his teams two polar-opposite games tonight. I just hope we saved some of it for later on in the week.ŽWith the Florida League playoffs just one week away, the Lightning have locked up the best record in the league, the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.Lightning shine then stumble Their statement came hours after The Associated Press reported Dolphins players who protest on the field during the anthem could be suspended for up to four games under a team policy issued last week.The Dolphins subsequently issued a statement saying all options regarding the teams policy remain open. On Thursday, coach Adam Gase said he doubted a Miami player would be suspended for protesting during the anthem.I mean, if anybody knew actual rules in the NFL, good luck suspending somebody,Ž Gase said. It takes about 5,000 things before anybody can get suspended by a club.ŽGase said he doesnt see anthem issue as potentially divisive for his team.I think they do a good job of when issues come up, they get together and hammer it out,Ž Gase said. These guys arent shy about speaking up. Theyve done a good job of making sure, as a group, they talk through things.ŽThree-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Jurrell Casey also plans to continue protesting, but wants people to quit seeing this as an anthem issue. The Tennessee Titans lineman said he will continue protesting by raising his fist at the end of the anthem.The biggest thing that we have right now is the way the justice system is set up for minorities,Ž said Casey, whose wife is an attorney. And thats just what the whole battle is about, trying to bring light to enlighten the things thats going on around the minority community.ŽThe league hasnt been able to reach an agreement. On Wednesday, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said hell insist his players stand for the anthem.Stills reaction to Jones comments?I wouldnt expect anything different,Ž Stills said. Stills said he hadnt spoken much with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross about the issue since last year. Ross didnt attend the first day of train-ing camp. Stills tuned out the anthem debate this offseason by trav-eling to Victoria Falls, Kruger National Park and Cape Town, where he learned about Afri-can culture, went on safaris and tried bungee jumping. More recently, he spent time in Lincoln, Nebraska, with other Dolphins wideouts and a receivers coach he has known since he was in the 10th grade.The anthem stuff was becoming a really quiet, quiet topic,Ž Stills said.No more. Defensive end Robert Quinn, who protested during the anthem while with the Rams last year, was asked following his first Dolphins practice what the league should do about a policy.Ill just say one thing: Its called freedom of speech,Ž he said. Simple as that.ŽQuinn, Stills and others have been targets of criticism for their protests, which they believe have been miscon-strued as unpatriotic.But Stills was nominated by teammates last year for the NFLs Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, a reflection of his standing in locker room. His latest community project is with the nationwide OK Program, which mentors young black men.I think Ive done a good job of trying to figure out ways to continue to use my voice and platform for the right things,Ž Stills said, and put the messaging back in the right direction.Ž ANTHEMFrom Page B3FPC head coach Travis Roland, right, said he suffered symptoms of heat exhaustion following a practice this spring. [JIM TILLER/GATEHOUSE MEDIA SERVICES] Local cross-country teams also train during the cooler hours of the morning ahead of their fall season. Father Lopezcoach Sue O'Malley said her runners can all last at least an hour nonstop, including 9-mile treks on Fridays.The Green Wave athletes start at Our Lady of Hope Catholic Church in Port Orange, jog down Dunlaw-ton Avenue and over the bridge, touch the water at the beachand head back. They run in groups and know where water is readily and easily available if needed.If any of her runners are ill-prepared, O'Malley docks them with an unexcused absence for the day, jeopardizing their varsity spot."It's very strenuous on the body," O'Malley said of long-distance running. "My athletes learn that I definitely do not mess around when it comes to hydrating themselves."According to the Centers for Disease Control and Pre-vention, heat illness during practice or competition is a leading cause of death and disability among U.S. high school athletes. The National Weather Service reports 107 heat fatalities occurred in 2017.During the summer months, schools are respon-sible for setting guidelines during practices, according to the Florida High School Athletic Association. How-ever, when the fall season starts, the practice rules and guidelines come straight from the FHSAA.According to the football coaches manual, for every 30 minutes of practice, there must be at least a5-minute rest and hydration break. Rule 41.5, titled "Hydration and Rest," also statesthere must be an area identified for rest that is out of direct sunlight, and that an ath-lete should never be denied access to water if he/she requests.FPC offensive lineman Verneal Henshaw said he shed 15 pounds during the summer, now measuring 6-foot-4 and 255 pounds. He drank plenty of water, but acknowledged there's nothing tougher than Florida heat."I've been to Ohio and to Texas; this heat is just unbearable sometimes," Henshaw said. "It rains one minute, changes and then it's bright and sunny. But since it rained, all the humidity sucks all the air out of you. It's something else."However, it's physical stress that players are will-ing to endure so as to not cramp up and suffer injuries when the pads are on. Many coaches believe the work that's put in during the summer leads winning teams deep into the playoffs come November.One of the extremes, at FPC, are the 34 sprints of 110 yards the Bulldogs ran on the opening day of condition-ing in late May. The sprints are run in four segments, with short beaks between segments."We went to a 7-on-7 up in Jacksonville (in June). They moved the champion-ship game indoors, and you had kids on the other team walking with cramps. Our kids were hopping and skip-ping," said Roland, who led FPC to a 9-0 regular-season record last year. "They said, 'Coach, those 110s worked. I ain't even tired.'" SUNFrom Page B1While searching for evidence to corroborate the report, UPD officers didnt find any bullets at the scene but did find the frying pan that was seen on camera being usedŽ by one of the football players. The police report indicates freshmen David Reese and Trey Dean, who is roommates with Jones, were interviewed by investiga-tors after it was determined both were at Jones dorm room during the night of the incident. After returning to his residence hall from a trip to Atlanta, Dean said he noticed several black males standing outside the build-ing by their vehiclesŽ and they asked Dean if he was a football player, to which he responded noŽ. Dean said he could hear the males talking about Jones, leading him to ask Jones if the males outside were Jones family members. Dean told inves-tigators he later observed one of the individuals (with Zachery) with a gun so they all got low to the floorŽ.As a result of the investigation nearly eight weeks ago, no criminal charges were filed, and it appears all but Lewis faced disciplinary action from the university. UPD recommended five players attend UFs Student Conduct and Conflict Reso-lution department. Toney and Campbell were recommended for an incident by holding and pointing what appears to be assault rifles (later determined to be airsoft rifles) at other individuals on campus,Ž according to the police report.Upon inspection of the rifles, police noted the one rifle made to look like an AR15, which Toney was carrying, had the orange tip mostly painted black making it look even more like a real rifleŽ and that Toney told officers he often felt the need to carry protection because people have attempted to pick fights with the football players when they go out in public. PLAYERSFrom Page B1 Almirolas lone Cup vic-tory, at Daytona in July 2014, comes with the asterisk: It was shortened by rain. He also earned an Xfinity Series win for a race he didnt even finish when he was forced out the car in the middle of a race he was dominating. Denny Hamlin closed out the win and Almirola refused to accept the victory.Without rain or replace-ment, Almirola knows hes on the cusp of a complete game victory.Were going to win,Ž he said. Were running too good. Were too competitive not to win. Its just a matter of when. When are we going to win?ŽAlmirola led 70 laps at Chicagoland and led 42 and finished third behind Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch at New Hampshire. Going into this weekends race at Pocono, he is 11th in the points standings and seems a lock to make the playoffs with six races left before the 16-driver field is set.With each run up front, the decision to join Harvick, Bowyer and Kurt Busch at SHR has proved every week to be the best one of his career.It makes me sleep better at night,Ž he said. I think had my career ended at the end of last year and I never got another opportunity, for the rest of my life I would go to sleep at night and wonder how good I was as a race car driver.ŽThe good times are rolling at SHR: Kurt Busch won the pole and finished eighth; and Harvick and Almirola placed in the top three.Its great to have that 10 car being a valuable tool to the other three cars at Stewart-Haas,Ž Harvick said.

The Associated PressSurging fuel costs are biting into pro“ ts for U.S. air carriers, which are struggling to increase fares to keep pace. [IVAN CHOLAKOV/ DREAMSTIME/TNS] By Conor ShineTribune News ServiceMore people are traveling in the United States than ever before, but that hasnt been enough to boost airlines financial fortunes, as theyve struggled to increase fares enough to keep up with surging fuel costs.That conundrum has made for seven months of turbu-lence for shares of the five of largest U.S. airlines, which are down 13 percent since the start of the year, according to the S&P Airlines Index.Now, investors are looking to see how airline executives will respond to the challeng-ing financial environment, with American and Southwest set to report their second-quarter earnings Thursday and provide an update on the months ahead.The updates will come after an up-and-down earn-ings season for the rest of the airline industry that has seen United Airlines post a better-than-expected outlook while JetBlue reported a loss of $120 million.Heres what to know about fuel, fares and other trends impacting the bottom lines of the two North Texas carriers:Fuel burnAfter several years of sky-high profits on the back of cheaper jet fuel, airlines have spent the last year dealing with rapidly increasing gas prices that will collectively add billions of dollars to their operating costs this year.American said it expects to pay between an average of $2.24 to $2.29 per gallon of fuel in the second quarter, up from the maximum of $2.23 it forecast earlier this year and a nearly 40 percent increase from the $1.62 it paid during the same period a year ago.Southwest hasnt broken out its fuel cost projections specifically for this quarter, but it is expected to feel the pinch along with the rest of the airline industry.We knew going in that fuel is going to be the big headwind. They cant hide from it,Ž said George Fergu-son, senior airlines analyst at Bloomberg. The big ques-tion is, are they going to find enough fare increase to cover that higher price of fuel?Ž Pushing fares higherAirline executives have insisted that fares will have to go up to cover the rising costs of fuel, but so far, sig-nificant increases have failed to materialize.Ferguson said competition among airlines, especially from fast-growing discount carriers, has made it diffi-cult for major carriers to get a price increase to stick.Earlier this month, Ameri-can told investors its unit revenue „ a closely watched metric of pricing power that represents the amount airlines earn per seat flown a mile „ would be lower than anticipated, up at most 3 percent year-over-year compared to a prior forecast of as much as 3.5 percent.Southwests outlook is even gloomier, with the car-rier forecasting a 3 percent dip in its unit revenues com-pared with last year, driven in part by slower bookings following a fatal accident aboard one of its aircraft in April.Going into American and Southwest (earnings), I expect more of the same. American already warned a bit „ we know theyre not going to be able to compensate for the higher fuel prices,Ž Ferguson said. Throttling back growthWith fuel prices rising and fares largely stagnant, investors will be looking to see whether airlines take action elsewhere to bolster their financial performance over the rest of 2018.While airlines are looking at ways to hold down nonfuel costs, the most likely tool in the short term will be to scale back their plans for network growth, reducing the number of seats available in the market in hopes of pushing fares upward. Both United and Delta told investors during their earn-ings reports that they plan to grow slightly less this year than previously anticipated.The sea change I keep looking for is whos going to come out and cut capacity in a real way so we can get this market closer to good supply-demand balance,Ž Ferguson said. Looking at where fares are going, were not seeing the cuts we need to see to feel better about fare development.ŽSouthwest has already said it will grow less in 2018 than previously expected, expanding its supply of available seats by about 4 percent, compared with its previous target of 5 percent.American hasnt specifically indicated whether it will cut back its planned capacity growth for the year.Financial turbulenceSouthwest, American airlines struggle as rising fuel costs slice into pro ts The Associated PressJOHANNESBURG „ Chi-nese President Xi Jinping urged fellow leaders of the BRICS emerging economies to reject protectionism out-rightŽ on Thursday during their annual summit in which the United States is being criticized for escalating tariffs on foreign goods.Xi along with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Brazilian President Michel Temer and South African President Cyril Ramaphosa clasped hands and posed for a group photograph on the second day of their meeting in Johannesburg.The Trump administra-tions trade war with China, the worlds second-largest economy, and other major trading partners has given focus to the summit to rally support for what Xi called common prosperity.ŽThe Chinese leader criticized the escalation of protectionism and unilateral-ismŽ that he said has directly affected the development of emerging markets.

DailyCommercial.com | Friday, July 27, 2018 C1 DRIVETom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 tom.mcniff@dailycommercial.com Powered by Q. I remember years ago when we had a flat tire, we were told we had to purchase three new tires to match the new one or the car would be unstable. This was a great burden to us as young marrieds, and I was always suspicious of that advice. I've not heard that advice for years. Now my granddaughter in Denver is being told the same thing. Is that valid advice, or just the tire businesses hoping to make more money? Thanks so much for your attention! „ Pat B. A. This recommendation may be valid in some cases but not all. All-wheel drive vehicles require all four tires to be very close in diameter and identically inflated to avoid causing heat, stress and wear of driveline components. Depending on the manufacturer, the maximum tread depth deviation between tires is approximately ‡ inch and ‡ inch. Let's say your four tires are worn to 50 percent of their original ‡-inch tread depth and one becomes damaged beyond repair. Purchasing an identical new tire is the best choice, but you'd be out of specs on the treaddepth difference. Rather than being hustled to renew the other three, it is possible to have the new tire shaved to match the others (it may take some searching to obtain this service). This hurts but is preferable to buying four new ones. On a typical two-wheel drive vehicle, it's best to have all four tires be the same size, speed and load rating, tread style and compound to insure optimum road handling. In cases where an exact match (brand and model) can't be obtained for a single replacement tire, some will opt for as close a copy as possible. Others will tell you to replace in pairs, or all four. I don't believe the difference in tread depth is an issue unless the remaining three are worn below 50 percent tread. If you replace a pair of tires, mount the new ones on the rear. The reasoning is if driving in rain and hydroplaning becomes an issue, it's better to have the front tires lose traction than the rears. This seems counterintuitive, but understeer is easier to correct for than oversteer. Releasing the throttle and perhaps braking lightly helps restore front traction, along with additional turning effort in order to stay on track. Should the rear tires lose traction, the vehicle is more likely to spin, which is difficult if not impossible to manage. Q. My driver's side power window has stopped going up at times. This has me worried as I might not be able to lock my truck, which I work from. Any ideas? It's a 2011 GMC with 174K miles. New window motor? Switch? Thanks. „ Adam B. A. Try this the next time it quits: Hold the switch in the up position continuously and slowly sweep the opened door throughout it's range. If nothing happens, try repeatedly operating the button as you move the door. If the window begins to function, even briefly, it's likely one of the wires in the plastic UNDER THE HOODDoes changing one tire mean changing them all? Brad Bergholdt The 2019 I-Pace transforms expectations for luxury electric vehiclesBy Larry PrintzTribune News ServiceLAGOS, Portugal „ What-ever image you have of Jaguar, it will soon be rendered obsolete by the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace, the first all-electric vehicle from a brand that has long lived by its founders maxim of grace, pace and space.Forget the long hood look of previous Jaguars; since this is an electric vehicle, there are few if components up front. To compensate, the I-Pace incorporates other familiar attributes, such as Jaguars signature flowing waistline, although it accen-tuates the front haunches. Then theres the grille lifted from the F-Pace or XJ6. The new aesthetic continues inside, which eschews the cliched walnut-paneled library look. Instead, two large high-definition screens anchoring the instrument panel, augmented by a pair of rotary switches. Its modern, elegant and intuitive. A full-color head-up display, which projects key informa-tion onto the windshield in front of the driver, is available. Finally, a panoramic glass roof lends the roomy cabin an enormous feel far beyond this vehicles 184-inch length.Once you are seated, how-ever, little prepares you for the I-Paces exemplary performance.A landmark JaguarBy Robert DufferTribune News ServiceThe tween riding in the back seat finally asked, "What is that thing you keep moving up there?"She had never seen "that thing" known as a six-speed stick shift, a manual transmission, a manny tranny, a handshaker, a Millennial theft deterrent. To her it was a relic, an oddity, a rotary phone thingy.Manual transmissions account for just 2 percent of all vehicles sold in 2018, according to data from Edmunds.com. In 2006, 47 percent of new models in the U.S. were offered with auto-matics and manuals. Now it's down to 20 percent and dropping sharply. "For automakers it will be simpler when the manual dies," said Ivan Drury, senior analyst at Edmunds. com. "It's kind of a hassle for them to offer both, same with dealers. Given the market forces, it's going to go away."Not too long ago, when push-button AM radios were infotainment and cigarette lighters were USB ports, all cars had manual transmissions. In the '50s during the boom of babies, cars and America, GM's Hydra-Matic automatic transmission made driving accessible to everyone. No need to worry about grind-ing gears, stalling out or other operator errors. In the half-century since, automakers and suppliers have advanced the automatic into something drivers never have to consider. Modern automatics are quicker, more efficient, much easier to operate, and better than most drivers. Call it progress, the inevitable inexorable direction of taking control from the driver for the sake of auto-mation, which incidentally, was first offered way back in the '60s in the form of cruise control.As consumers preferred the automatic, automakers stopped offering the manual to cut the costs of offering two powertrains."We have seen that buyers aren't asking for them," said Mark Gillies, spokesman for Volkswagen. "We had a manual option in the old Tiguan, but almost no one took it."There are few utility vehicles with a manual, including midsize pickups in the aging Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier, as well as the six-speed manual in the new Jeep Wrangler. That clutch pedal has firm, almost abrupt kickback, and the gearbox is notchy enough to make it feel like you're actu-ally doing something in a vehicle that can conquer ter-ritory without much insight from the driver.The remaining manuals are in subcompact com-muter cars or sports cars."In our value vehicles, there is still a market for cost efficiency with a manual than a little higher priced automatic," said James Bell, director of corporate com-munications for Kia.The shift is on: Manual transmissions may be endangeredThe 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport is a value-packed hatchback, powered by a standard 1.6-liter turbo four-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.

This is not uncommon in vehicles that see a lot of door action, particularly the drivers door. If the window reliably goes down, and up is the only concern, its not the motor. A scan tool test would be the next step, to prove out the switch request. Also, any other faults with other windows, mirrors or such at this same time? This might also hint at the broken wire theory.

TIREFrom Page C1The test drive route started with a conventional mix of city and highway driving until the navigation directed us off-road, where the I-Pace forded an 18-inch-deep stream. Stop and think about taking an electric vehicle with its undercarriage battery pack of 432 cells effortlessly wading through water.Emerging from the stream, the road went up an unpaved dusty mountainside, which the Jaguar handled effortlessly. The final stop was a Formula One racetrack, where the I-Pace swiftly yet silently generated speeds of more than 100 mph. And why not? Its a Jaguar.On-road, the I-Pace clearly proves itself as a classic Jaguar for the new millennium, with a 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 124 mph. If youre used to an internal combustion engine, going this fast this silently will take some get-ting used to. You can turn up the electronically produced artificial noise, but why? Theres a spectacu-larly good Meridian sound system thats better at that.The I-Pace uses a Jaguar-designed electric motor on each axle fitted around a compact, single-speed transmission and differential, enabling power delivery to all four wheels. Nevertheless, the vehicle is filled with features meant to extend the I-Paces range:€The climate control adjusts airflow to the number of passengers so that air doesnt blow on empty seats. The I-Pace can also pre-condition the cabin to the proper tem-perature while plugged in, rather than drawing power to do it once underway.€The I-Pace maintains the battery packs optimal temperature while charging to deliver the most range.€The navigation system factors in the topography of routes, driving styles and available range to accurately calculate routes. It also locates charging locations along the route.The car employs regenerative braking to capture energy generated while decelerating to recharge the battery. It can be adjusted to capture more or less energy. Under the former, the driver nearly never has to touch the brake; just release the throttle, but gentle pedal modulation is essential.A standard air suspen-sion delivers an impeccable ride/handling balance in the best Jaguar tradition, lowering the car by 0.4 inches above 65 mph, and raising it 2 inches in off-road mode. Of course, as youd expect of a car with such a huge battery pack, the I-Pace perfectly plants itself during cornering.Fortunately, theres enough power that you rarely realize how heavy this car feels. In fact, its driving position and com-ponent setup give it a futuristic vibe that gives it uniquely futuristic driving feel. Its enhanced by the utter lack of any mechani-cal commotion common to gas-powered cars. You just silently rocket forward, thanks to 512 pound-feet of torque.Its quite a package, one that truly reimagines the automobile, not just in terms of packaging, but also in design, proportion, performance and interior accommodations. Its truly a landmark Jaguar.In another time, they might have even called it the E-Type. JAGUARFrom Page C1But the manual take rate of 4 percent for the Rio, Forte and Soul is hardly a business case.The new Kia Stinger performance sedan does not even come with a manual. The 365-horsepower rear-wheel-drive fastback competes with German benchmarks such as the BMW 3-Series, which has a manual with a take rate in the single digits.When youre looking at performance sedans for 2018 everyone has switched over to DSG and modern automatics or dual clutch gearboxes,Ž Bell said. If you want to maximize performance and acceleration of a car, an eightto 10-speed gearbox is the way to go.ŽSupercar-makers such as Ferrari and Lamborghini no longer offer manuals for performance reasons. Even the famed Porsche 911, with its excellent PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission, has a manual take rate of just 20 percent.High-end automatic transmissions like the PDK drive better than you and make you a better driver,Ž Drury said. I dont think a lot of people get to go out there and exercise the transmission the way it should be.Ž Thats as true on the street as it is in the virtual world.Even the video games are all PDKs,Ž said Mark Basso, founder and president of Autobahn Country Club in Joliet. When we opened 14 years ago, the vast majority of cars on our track maybe 90 percent were manuals. Now I would guess its 60 percent automatics and climbing.ŽYet for some enthusiasts or iconoclasts and everyone we spoke to for this article, theres no other way to drive than with a manual. The numbers and the logic dont matter. Rowing your own gears is simply more fun.There is a feeling of great control as a driver, and there is the sheer physical pleasure of managing a perfect shift,Ž said Gillies, who, as the former executive editor of Car and Driver, has had envi-able success on the race track. I feel more in touch if I am operating the gears.ŽOwners of the Ford Focus RS and Ford Mustang GT 350 must feel the same way. Those performance vehicles only come with manual trans-missions for now. The super fun and super smooth Mazda MX-5 Miata has a manual take rate of just under 60 percent, which is one of the highest take rates in the segment, according to Jacob Brown, spokesman for Mazda. Something is lost in the art of driving with an automatic transmission, some purists argue.Downshifting you learn to blip the throttle so the revs dont stretch the pis-tons, thats learning to drive a sports car,Ž Basso said. Theyre taking that away from you.ŽEven though Bassos teen driving safety school at the Autobahn uses cars with automatic transmissions, he advocates that everyone learns to shift. Its understanding the car,Ž he said. When you have a clutch you have a peek at the inner workings of the car. Its not a toaster.ŽIts not just racers who appreciate a good shift.When the average person hears that you have a manual they think youre some kind of Luddite,Ž said Brian Moody, executive editor of Autotrader. But understanding how the mechanical pieces work can affect how you act and react behind the wheel.ŽThe next generation of drivers may not have as many opportunities to understand firsthand the marriage of transmission and engine, but some stick lovers are intent on passing the knobby torch.I find it very rewarding, and everyone Ive taught to drive manual has enjoyed it,Ž Drury said.Gillies taught both his chil-dren how to drive stick and Bell was planning to do the same.Driving is not stab it and steer,Ž Bell said on the eve of taking his daughter to get her drivers permit. Its about appreciating mechan-ically what it takes to get up to highway speed and the respect for what it takes to get speed. The recognition should encompass all your senses to not be distracted. Its a safety thing.Ž Its a fun thing too. MANUALFrom Page C1

DEAR ABBY: I'm a retired woman living in a condo complex that houses mostly seniors. During the eight years I have lived here, I've always participated in several monthly social events, and have served on the condo association board. I know most of the other residents and count many of them as friends. A couple of years ago, my dad moved in with me so I could care for him. The early evening he passed away, there were many emergency vehicles. Shockingly, not one of my neighbors came over. The police wouldn't leave me alone, and it took a while for another relative to get here. The next day, a neighborhood representative called to ask me what had happened. Am I right in feeling hurt that my friends didn't care enough to check on things right away? They knew my situation. -HURT IN THE MIDWEST DEAR HURT: The reason many people would stay away from a scene like you describe might be that, because a lot was going on, they didn't want to intrude. Before jumping to conclusions about why your friends didn't contact you immediately, ASK them why they didn't and give them an opportunity to explain. DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been married for seven years. It's the second marriage for both of us, and I'm getting ready to retire. I do our laundry. She works very hard in her profession, and I do it because I enjoy the feeling of a job well done and doing something nice for her. However, my wife refuses, in spite of my repeatedly asking, to turn her clothes right-side out before putting them in the laundry basket. It takes me at least 30 minutes every wash day to correct her clothes before washing. This is an ongoing annoyance. Her response usually is, "If you don't like it, don't do my laundry!" Am I asking too much? Is her habit so ingrained that she can't change it? -HUSBAND IN THE LAUNDRY ROOM DEAR HUSBAND: Many people wash their clothes inside out because they think it gets the garment cleaner or they're afraid that washing the items right-side out will cause fading. Between you and me, I think your wife's suggestion is a good one. Let her wash her own clothes for a while, and you may nd she becomes more cooperative.DEAR ABBY: My nieces send me pictures of their children on every occasion. I love them, but I don't understand why they think I want prints. I'd rather view them online. Is there a way I can tell them without damaging our relationship, or must I continue to keep my mouth shut and throw the photos into an ever-growing pile? -AUNTIE-PIC DEAR AUNTIE-PIC: It should offend no one if you "suggest" that you would love to view these lovely photos online rather than have your nieces "go to the expense" of printing and mailing them to you. Then cross your ngers and pray they take the hint. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

CALL 352-787-0600 OR VISIT DAILYCOMMERCIAL.COM HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR FRIDAY, JULY 27, 2018:This year will be memorable and one that your thoughts will often drift to in the future. Your birthday occurs on a lunar eclipse, promising relationship changes, not necessarily for the worst. If you are single, you could meet someone who forces you to do some inner reection. This person might not be the love of your life, but he or she will be important to you. If you are attached, you might be taken aback by an adjustment that will need to be made between you and your sweetie. Not every moment will be easy, but the results will be noteworthy. AQUARIUS knows how to get you moving.ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Deal with a key individual. You will note that anger seems to be brewing. It will hit the boiling point if you are not careful. Help your acquaintances and/ or friends clear the air. You could feel as if you are being pulled from one side to the other. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) You understand feeling out of whack. You also understand being unmovable on an issue that forces others to think through a problem. You might spontaneously say or do something that pushes you in a different direction. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) You might want to take the high road rather than get involved in all the trivial issues around you. Nevertheless, your ability to communicate could improve with todays eclipse. You might want to gain a greater perspective of others and their actions. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) You feel pressured and extraordinarily tired. Of all signs, todays eclipse could affect your energy levels the most. Feel free to cocoon and take a power nap. A partner might open up about what ails him or her. Avoid overreacting. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) The lunar eclipse could energize your life, especially socially. You feel as if youre being forced into an odd position. Accept your limitations, but dont take on unneeded criticism. A relationship could be entering your life or changing. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) You could feel out of sorts. Generally, the month before your birthday you might feel a little down. Often people look at their past year and wonder whether their next year could be as meaningful or better. Todays eclipse could cause fatigue. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) An encounter could have more impact than you realize. Romance becomes spicy in the next few weeks. Use this unusually creative period to forge ahead on a heartfelt project. Be aware of a child who needs more attention than he or she is receiving. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Pressure builds as todays lunar eclipse seems to trigger you. A domestic matter pops up from out of the blue. You might not be sure which way to go. If you do nothing, you might get a more complete perspective. Weight the pros and cons before acting. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Reach out to a loved one. You might not have seen this person in a while, but once you get past the formalities, you will be impossible to separate. You have a lot of news to catch up on. Be aware of a sudden happening around your daily life. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22JAN. 19) You have a way about you that draws others closer to you. People might make assumptions about your nances, but they know little to nothing, and youll want to keep it that way. You will be happier in the long run if you keep some details to yourself. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Todays eclipse focuses on you. You might note that you experience more emotional vicissitudes than you thought possible. Do not ght these feelings. Know that you will get through them far more quickly if you go with the ow. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You might want to see a situation in a different light. You might try very hard to detach and come to terms with what you see. On the other hand, you could be hurt more easily than in the recent past. Wait a few days before acting on your emotions. DailyCommercial.com | Friday, July 27, 2018 C5 TODAY IS FRIDAY, JULY 27, the 208th day of 2018. There are 157 days left in the year. TODAY'S HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY: On July 27, 1974, the House Judiciary Committee voted 27-11 to adopt the rst of three articles of impeachment against President Richard Nixon, charging he had personally engaged in a course of conduct designed to obstruct justice in the Watergate case. ON THIS DATE: In 1909 during the rst ocial test of the U.S. Army's rst airplane, Orville Wright ew himself and a passenger, Lt. Frank Lahm, above Fort Myer, Va., for one hour and 12 minutes. In 1921 Canadian researcher Frederick Banting and his assistant, Charles Best, succeeded in isolating the hormone insulin at the University of Toronto. In 1953 the Korean War armistice was signed at Panmunjom, ending three years of ghting. In 1967 President Lyndon B. Johnson appointed the Kerner Commission to assess the causes of urban rioting, the same day black militant H. Rap Brown told a press conference in Washington that violence was "as American as cherry pie." In 1980 on day 267 of the Iranian hostage crisis, the deposed Shah of Iran died at a military hospital outside Cairo, Egypt, at age 60.
