The charges are not related to Manaforts work with the Trump campaign.The aggressive questioning was aimed at shifting blame from Manafort onto Gates, who pleaded guilty in Muel-lers investigation and agreed to cooperate with investigators by testifying in the financial fraud trial.After all the lies youve So many lies Gates cant keep up By Amir Vahdat and Mehdi FattahiThe Associated PressTEHRAN, Iran „ As Iranians awoke Tuesday to renewed U.S. sanctions that had been lifted by Tehrans nuclear deal with world powers, the question on everyones mind remained: What happens now?From deciphering Presi-dent Donald Trumps tweets on Iran „ including one demanding WORLD PEACEŽ „ to trying to figure out how much their cratering currency is worth, Iranians appear divided on how to respond.The same goes for their theocratic government, which for now is abiding by the atomic accord.

[ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] By Todd PitmanThe Associated PressTANJUNG, Indonesia „ The rescue team had done everything it could to locate the body of man, who had been killed instantly when a massive earthquake collapsed his home Sunday night on the Indonesian island of Lombok.They used hacksaws to cut a square into concrete wall. They used crowbars and dogs and a power drill. But by Tuesday afternoon, with the unmistakable stench of rot-ting flesh in the air, they were sweating and at their wits end. The body of 60-year-old Abdul Malik, one of at least 105 people killed in the 7.0-mag-nitude quake, would have to stay under the rubble for a third day.Its taking far too long,Ž said 50-year-old Masini, the victims brother-in-law who watched more than a dozen helmeted emergency workers in orange jumpsuits drill into a thick layer of concrete.The tragic scene underscored the challenges facing Indonesias government as it struggles to deal with its latest natural disaster. The quake shattered homes and lives across this vast archipelago, displacing more than 84,000 people, according to disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho.At least 4,600 foreign and Indonesian tourists also have been evacuated from three smaller islands off Lomboks coast so far, Nugroho said. The islets are renowned for their crystal clear waters that draw snorkelers and divers from all over the world.But with not enough boats to evacuate tourists quickly and too few planes to fly them out of Lombok, many visitors were forced to wait for hours or camp on beaches and the floor of the international air-port in Mataram.On the winding roads running north from the airport, which lead to destroyed villages shadowed by tall palm trees, the disasters impact was evident. Villagers fear-ing aftershocks could be seen camped by the thousands under makeshift blue tarpaulins held together with bamboo and sticks. Some held up simple cardboard signs begging for aid as ambulances and other vehicles raced by. We need food and water,Ž said one. Please donate,Ž said another.The international charity Oxfam said drinking water was scarce because of a recent spell of extremely dry weather in Lombok. Food, medical supplies, tarps and clothes are also urgently needed, it said.By late Tuesday, the government appeared to be focused on finding bodies, and wherever possible, survivors.Masini said his brother-in-law, Abdul Malik, who owned a small grocery store next to his home in Tanjung, was sit-ting in his living room with family when the catastrophe struck. Although his family managed to make it out, Abdul Malik was crushed by a thick concrete wall.The rescuers are working too slow,Ž Masini said. They should be bringing in heavy equipment to speed this up.ŽAprintinus Titus, from the National Search and Rescue Agency, acknowledged they needed better tools. But he said we will not give up until we pull him out of this rubble. We know how hard his family is suffering.ŽA few kilometers (miles) up the road, rescuers earlier Tuesday pulled a single body from a pancaked pile of broken concrete and twisted rebar that once held together the multistory Jabal Nur Mosque, whose green dome had shat-tered and collapsed.A 66-year-old village elder, Supardi, said a 6.4-magnitude quake that hit Lombok a week earlier had caused countless cracks in the mosques walls.Those were going to be repaired, he said, but people were just getting over the first quake and more than half the villages 1,500 people were sleeping outside.Large earthquakes are often followed by less-powerful aftershocks. But nobody expected a stronger quake would occur in such a short amount of time,Ž said Supardi, who said he was praying in the mosque when the tremor hit.He described a roar that knocked out the electricity and sent people fleeing outside. It destroyed everything,Ž he said.Indonesia is prone to earth-quakes because of its location on the Ring of Fire,Ž an arc of volcanoes and fault lines in the Pacific Basin. In December 2004, a massive magnitude 9.1 earthquake off Sumatra triggered a tsunami that killed 230,000 people in a dozen countries.By Tuesday evening, the search effort at the mosque ended after dogs failed to find more bodies and no other families reported missing loved ones there, said Anak Agung Alit Supartana, who heads the regions Search and Rescue Agency office. There had been reports that dozens of people were killed at the site.Supartana said two people had been found alive, along with three bodies. But the rescuers and heavy equipment were very much needed elsewhere, so we decided to shift the operationŽ to other locations.As it turned out, one was the crushed home of Masinis brother-in-law. The teams and one excavator arrived after dark Tuesday to investigate. But officials said they would have to resume their search for the body there at first light Wednesday.In quake-hit Indonesia, a challenge to recover the deadRelatives react as rescue teams recover the bodies of victims killed in an earthquake Tuesday in North Lombok, Indonesia.

The amendment mandates the availability and safe use of medical marijuana by qualifying patients,Ž Dodson wrote.Dodson also ruled that the 2017 law is unconstitutional Judge rejects medical pot lawDarrin Potter, vice president production for GrowHealthy, walks through the vegetative cultivation room at the GrowHealthy facility in Lake Wales. [PIERRE DUCHARME/GATEHOUSE MEDIA] Rules limits on number of operators if wrong By Jim Saunders News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ The emergence of businesses such as Uber and Lyft has threatened the viability of traditional taxicab companies worldwide,Ž a federal appeals court said this week.But that doesnt mean cab companies in MiamiDade County should receive compensation after a 2016 ordinance cleared the way for Uber and Lyft drivers to hit the streets.A panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday rejected a classaction lawsuit filed by cab companies that contended the Miami-Dade ordinance amounted to an unconstitutional taking of property because of its effect on medallions,Ž which have long served as a valuable license for cabs to operate.The limited number of medallions, which have been issued over the years by the county, traded for about $340,000 by 2014. But the 2016 ordinance did not require app-based services such as Uber and Lyft to obtain medallions, which also were tied to regulations imposed on cab companies.The lawsuit against the county, in part, alleged that the cab companies should receive compensation because the ordinance allowing com-petitors such as Uber and Lyft reduced the value of the medallions.But a federal district judge rejected the arguments, and the panel of the Atlanta-based appeals court agreed in Court rejects taxicab companies' lawsuit By Lori Weisberg The San Diego Union-Tribune ORLANDO … For the second quarter in a row, SeaWorld Entertainment reported nota-ble gains in attendance and revenues, signaling a possible rebound from years of steep losses in visitation.Attendance jumped nearly 5 percent in the second quarter ending June 30, with 290,000 more guests visiting SeaWorlds 12 parks than in the same quarter last year. And through July, SeaWorld saw 900,000 more guests passing through park turnstiles com-pared with the year before, executives reported Monday.During the second quarter, revenue also rose nearly 5 percent „ to $391.9 million, compared with $373.8 million a year earlier.Investors reacted positively to the news, as SeaWorlds stock price rose by nearly 17 percent to close at $24.67 Monday. The upbeat earnings report overshadowed news from SeaWorld that it has reached an initial settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission related to possible violations of federal securities law.The disclosure, which included few details other than it could cost the com-pany an estimated $4 million, stems from a notice the com-pany received earlier this year from the SEC notifying it that the agencys staff was recommending that a civil enforcement action or administrative proceeding be brought against the company.ŽSeaWorld attendance jumps againSeaWorld reported that attendance rose about 5 percent in the second quarter. [ JOHN RAOUX/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ] By Terry SpencerThe Associated PressFORT LAUDERDALE „ Florida school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz told a detective that a demon in his head „ the evil sideŽ „ told him to burn, kill and destroy, and that he thought about going to a park to kill people about a week before 17 people were gunned down at the school, according to a transcript of his interro-gation released Monday.During the more than 11 hours of questioning by Broward sheriffs Detective John Curcio, Cruz usually answered in short sentences or nodded yes or no, speaking so softly that the detective repeat-edly told him to speak up. Twice when Curcio left the room, Cruz, 19, cursed at himself and said that he wanted to die, he deserved to die.Youre nothin,Ž Cruz told himself, followed by cursing.The interrogation will be pored over by prosecutors and defense attorneys if Cruz attempts an insanity defense or for mitigating factors if he is convicted and faces the death penalty.

A4 Wednesday, August 8, 2018 | DailyCommercial.com32-page ruling Monday. The appeals court said the medallions did not give cab companies a right to exclusivityŽ in the local transportation market.If the (ordinance) code did not convey to the medallion holders the right to block competition in the for-hire transportation market, then the county could not have taken that right and the medallion holders takings claims must fail,Ž said Mondays ruling, written by Judge Stanley Marcus and joined by judges Charles Wilson and Marcia Morales Howard.Even the most cursory examination of the code reveals that the county did not give the medallion holders the right to enjoin competition. None of the codes provisions ever explicitly or implicitly conferred that right. Instead, the code reflects the carefully cabined scope of the medallion holders intangible property interest. Moreover, the right to property does not ordinarily encompass the power to exclude competi-tion, and nothing in the code signaled a con-trary intent,Ž the ruling states.The lawsuit is part of legal and political battles that have played out across the country in recent years as companies such as Uber and Lyft have upended the traditional taxi industry. Numerous communities in Florida, including Miami-Dade County, grappled with how „ and whether „ to regulate the new companies.After Miami-Dade County passed its ordi-nance, the Legislature in 2017 approved a law that created a statewide regulatory framework for the new companies. That state law trumped local ordinances, but the federal appeals court said the Miami-Dade cab companies were still able to pursue the class-action lawsuit against the county because of the 2016 ordinance.But the appeals court said the county had a rational basis for the ordinance, including differences in regulation between taxis and the new transportation ser-vices, which the court called transportation network entities,Ž or TNEs.ŽThe long and short of it is that the medallion hold-ers constitutional claims fail,Ž the ruling said. Their takings claims falter because they cannot lay claim to a property interest that includes the power to block competitors from the for-hire transportation market. And their equal protection claims fail because any disparate regulatory treatment that the county afforded taxicabs and TNEs was amply supported by legitimate government interests.Ž TAXIFrom Page A3because it requires mari-juana operators licensed by the state to cultivate, process, and dispense medical marijuana „ something known as vertical integrationŽ „ as opposed to breaking the activities into separate parts for licensure. And the judge decided that the law „ aimed at implementing the 2016 constitutional amendment, which broadly legalized medical marijuana „ improperly restricted who could get licenses.But Dodson refused to grant an injunction requested by Florigrown, a company partly owned by Tampa strip club oper-ator Joe Redner, who also recently won a separate marijuana-related legal challenge. Leon County Circuit Judge Karen Giev-ers ruled that Redner should be able to grow his own marijuana for juic-ingŽ purposes to prevent a recurrence of lung cancer. The state is appealing her decision.Dodsons decision not to issue an injunction means Florida health offi-cials can continue to move forward with an embattled process to grant a handful of licenses in addition to the 14 already bestowed in the states highly competitive mari-juana industry, expected by some to generate $2.5 billion in revenue in less than a decade.But the judges ruling could pave the way for an unlimited number of marijuana purveyors in a state where one license recently was sold as part of a $93 million deal that included an unnamed health care organizationŽ and another was acquired in a $53 million takeover by California-based Med Men.Its the first time any judge has weighed in on the licensing process at all, and what he said was unequivocal. ƒ What hes saying, ... is what youre doing is unconstitutional,Ž Florigrown CEO Adam Eland said Monday.But Eland acknowledged that the judges ruling might have no immediate impact on Florigrown.Dodson found Florigrown will not suffer irreparable harmŽ in the absence of an injunction but will still have the ability to apply and compete for one of the remaining availableŽ licenses.While Dodson did not issue an injunction, the judge set an Oct. 3 deadline for health officials and/or the Legislature to resolve the deficiencies with the law.Hes giving them that time because he feels its not irreparable yet. They have an opportunity to repair it,Ž Eland said, adding that Florigrown is trying to reach a settlement with health officials.But its highly unlikely Florida legislators will meet in a special session to address the marijuana law prior to the Nov. 6 general election and almost equally unlikely that health officials will make a significant policy reversal without the blessing of the Legislature.This looks like a big deal, but in reality theres several more years of liti-gation before this matter will be resolved,Ž said lawyer John Lockwood, who represents marijuana operators and applicants. POT LAWFrom Page A3SeaWorld has been under investigation by both the SEC and Department of Justice for executives disclosures and public statements in August 2014 and earlier about the impact of the anti-captivity BlackfishŽ documentary and trading in the companys securities.SeaWorld also is facing litigation accusing it of misleading shareholders about how the film contributed to falling attendance and revenue. The Department of Jus-tice has intervened in that suit.In its disclosure Monday, SeaWorld said the proposed settlement with the enforcement staff of the SEC includes no admission or denial of potential charges against the Company arising out of the previously disclosed SEC investiga-tion.Ž The settlement, SeaWorld said, is still subject to approval by the commission and there is no guarantee it will be finalized.Interim CEO John Reilly, who only briefly referenced the possible settlement during the earnings call, attributed the second quarters strong results to new pricing strategies, a continued focus on mar-keting and well-received new attractions, including the recently opened Electric Eel coaster in San Diego.We are confident in the direction we are heading and we are encouraged by the results we are seeing in our busi-ness,Ž Reilly told analysts in an earnings conference call. Our confidence extends to our long term view in the significantly improved financial per-formance we believe this company can deliver in the next few years and beyond.ŽThe results come on the heels of a strong first quarter when attendance and revenue jumped by double digits. Attendance rose by nearly 15 percent, while quarterly revenue rose by 16.5 percent.The second quarter, though, is a more credible reflection of the companys performance given that it includes the start of summer when many more of SeaWorld Entertainments parks are open.The two consecutive quarters of gains represent a significant turnaround from years of disappointing financial performance that has dogged the Orlando-based company since the release of Blackfish,Ž which was critical of the marine parks treatment of killer whales.The attendance growth also is an improvement over a dismal 2017 for the San Diego and Orlando marine parks, which saw visitation fall by double digits, according to a report released earlier this year documenting 2017 attendance at the worlds top amusement parks.

Cruzs attorneys had wanted it suppressed, saying its disclosure could hinder his right to a fair trial.Cruzs statements about the shooting are blacked out, but the transcript is otherwise wide-ranging, dealing with the death of Cruzs parents, his penchant for killing animals, his former girlfriend, his brother, guns, suicide attempts and, especially, the voice. He told Curcio the voice appeared after his father died about 15 years ago but got worse after his mother died of pneumonia in November.Cruz described the voice as a male, about his age, and said the only person he ever told about it was his brother.Curcio asked what the voice told him.Burn. Kill. Destroy,Ž Cruz responded.Burn, kill, destroy what?Ž the detective asked.Anything,Ž Cruz responded.He told Curcio that he had to fight the voice from taking over, that it was always bad. Curcio questioned that, asking how it could always be bad if Cruz had held down a job at a dis-count store for two years.The voice is in here,Ž he said, apparently pointing to his head. And then its me. Its just regular me trying to be a good person.Ž Curcio said everyone has a good and bad side.Do they really?Ž Cruz said.He said the voice tried to get him to shoot people at a park a week earlier. Or maybe it was three. Cruz couldnt remember exactly, but he didnt want to do it. Curcio asked why he didnt. I ... I dont know,Ž he said.Cruz told Curcio he wanted to join the Army to be a Ranger but he failed the written exam because I was stupid.ŽCruz said he bought the AR-15 allegedly used in the shooting a year before because it was cool lookingŽ and to feel safe.Ž He said he bought other guns but fired them only twice, both times into the cement floor of his mothers garage.It didnt bounce all over hell and creation?Ž Curcio asked. No, Cruz replied, saying the bullets embedded in the concrete.Cruz said he tried to kill himself with an over-the-counter pain reliever after his mom died and years earlier had tried to drink himself to death because he was lonely.You dont have a lot of friends?Ž Curcio asked.No.Ž Cruz said he goes fishing with the demon.Curcio told Cruz he doesnt believe the voice exists, but Cruz insisted it was there and said he wanted to see a psychiatrist.At the end of the inter-rogation, the detective let Cruzs 18-year-old brother into the room.You „ your „ people think youre a monster now,Ž Zachary Cruz told him.A monster?Ž Cruz responded.Youre not acting like yourself. Like, why? Like, weve ... this is not who you are. Like, come on. Why did you do this? This is ... dont even laugh at me,Ž Zachary Cruz said.Im sorry, dude,Ž Nikolas Cruz replied.

A6 Wednesday, August 8, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comtold and the fraud youve committed, you expect this jury to believe you?Ž Downing asked incredulously.Gates said he did, but the defense lawyer wasnt sat-isfied. He scoffed at the idea that Gates had repented for his actions, noting that prosecutors have said they wont oppose his bid for probation and getting him to acknowledge he had not repaid the money he had taken from Manafort.After Gates described his theft as unauthorized transactionsŽ instead of embezzlement, Downing prodded him to use the latter term „ and Gates ultimately relented, saying, It was embezzle-ment from Mr. Manafort.ŽProsecutors had braced for the tough questioning by getting Gates to come clean about his own crimes. He told jurors how he disguised millions of dollars in foreign income as loans in order to lower Manaforts tax bill. Gates recounted how he and Manafort used more than a dozen offshore shell com-panies and bank accounts in Cyprus to funnel the money, all while concealing the accounts and the income from the IRS.But the grilling got more intense, and personal, Tuesday afternoon when Downing pressed Gates about a secret lifeŽ he said was funded by embezzlement, including an extramarital affair that Gates himself acknowledged. Gates also said he may have submitted personal expenses for reimbursement by Trumps inaugural committee, which he helped operate.After Gates struggled to recall precisely what he had told Muellers team, Downing asked if he had been confronted with so many liesŽ that he cant keep his story straight.Downing at one point asked whether Muellers investigators had inter-viewed Gates about his role in the campaign, prompt-ing an objection from prosecutors and a sidebar conference with U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III. The defense moved on. Both sides have agreed to limit discussion of the campaign to avoid preju-dicing the jury, though they did permit testimony about the overlap of a bank loan with Manaforts role in the Trump election effort.Gates implicated himself in broad criminal conduct on the stand, an apparent strategic decision by pros-ecutors to take some of the steam out of defense ques-tioning. He told jurors he embezzled from Manafort by filing false expense reports. He also said he committed credit card and mortgage fraud, falsi-fied a letter for a colleague involved in an investment deal and made false state-ments in a deposition at Manaforts direction.Prosecutors summoned Gates to give jurors the first-hand account of a co-conspirator they say helped Manafort carry out an elaborate offshore tax-evasion and bank fraud scheme. Gates testified that he and Manafort knew they were committing crimes for years, saying they had stashed money in foreign bank accounts and falsified bank loan documents.In Cyprus, they were documented as loans. In reality, it was basically money moving between accounts,Ž Gates said.Manafort and Gates were the first two people indicted in Muellers investigation into potential ties between Russia and the Trump campaign. Gates pleaded guilty months later and agreed to cooperate in Muellers investiga-tion of Manafort, the only American charged by the special counsel to opt for trial instead of a guilty plea.went further „ much further „ performing snippets of 20 songs across a 9.5-minute video that transitioned smoothly as different teams danced and performed comedic skits to the music.In one scene, bloodhound officers run through a field with their big-nosed, floppy-eared pooches to the sounds of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "That Smell."

There is just not the resources for that.ŽThe flames were raging in mostly remote areas, and no deaths or serious injuries were reported. But at least 75 homes have been lost, and thousands of people have been forced to flee. The blaze, dubbed the Mendocino Complex, was reported 20 percent con-tained on Tuesday.Its rapid growth at the same time firefighters were battling more than a dozen other major blazes around the state fanned fears that 2018 could become the worst wildfire season in California history.For whatever reason, fires are burning much more intensely, much more quickly than they were before,Ž said Mark A. Hartwig, president of the California Fire Chiefs Association.About 3,900 firefighters, including a crew of 40 vol-unteers from New Zealand, were battling the blaze, con-tending with temperatures in the high 90s and winds gusting to 25 mph.The heavily forested area of myriad canyons where the fire is spreading has few roads or natural barriers that can serve as firebreaks or offer safe havens for fire-fighters to battle the flames head on, Cal Fire Battalion Chief Jonathan Cox said. So firefighters instead fell back to natural barriers such as streams or used bulldoz-ers to cut fire lines, but the flames were moving so fast in spots that they blew past, forcing firefighters to retreat, Cox said.Theres no way youre going to stop that fire,Ž said Kyle Coleman, 28, who returned to his childhood home last week to help his father try „ in vain, it turned out „ to protect it. A big wall of flames came over the mountain ... I pretty much got my dad out of there.ŽIn all, 14,000 firefighters were battling blazes across California, which is seeing earlier, longer and more destructive wildfire seasons because of drought, warmer weather attributed to climate change, and the building of homes deeper into the forests.Cal Fire is really an urban firefighter service in the woods,Ž said Arizona State University professor Stephen Pyne, a wildfire management expert.

Columns need to include a recent headshot of the writer. We edit for length, clarity, and grammar. Mail: Voices, P.O. Box 490007, Leesburg, FL 34749-0007 Email: Fax: 352-365-1951 Florida stands nearly alone in its treatment of voting rights for former felons. While most states restore civil rights after all sentences are complete, Florida forces applicants through a convoluted, torturous process that often ends in defeat. In March, a federal judge described Floridas process as a gauntlet of constitutionally infirm hurdles,Ž subject to the whims of the elected officials who make up Floridas Cabinet. Its a fair call. Among the four states that lack an automatic rights-restoration process, Floridas is by far the most difficult. In fact, U.S. District Judge Mark Walker found Floridas process so flawed that he ordered it shut down immediately. Floridians must wait a minimum of five years before embarking on the rights-restoration process, and it can take 10 years or more to even reach the hearing stage. And even those who work their way through the maze can be summarily denied: Gov. Rick Scott has a unilateral veto, but if he agrees, two other Cabinet members must also sign off. The secrecy and randomness of the process was on full display at the Cabinets meeting in June, where Scott „ often with no stated reason „ said yes or no to a rapid succession of cases, with the assent of Attorney General Pam Bondi, Agricultural Commissioner Adam Putnam and Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis. Many of those who were denied will never know why. Walker ordered the process shut down immediately, but the state appealed. The case now lies with the 11th District Court of Appeals, which heard oral arguments last week. The court is being asked to decide whether Floridas arbitrary, secretive process violates the First Amendments rights to political expression and association.Ž The case could have national implications. Before the 11th Circuit rules, however, Florida voters could approve a much simpler, straightforward process to restore voting rights to those who have paid their debt to society. That proposed constitutional amendment is set for the November election. Ending Floridas complex and painful rights-restoration process would be better for everyone. Many of the people who lose their voting rights under this provision are low-income, and disproportionately minorities. Yet many have clearly worked hard to get their lives back on track after serving their time or completing probation. Person after person at the June hearing told tales of redemption, with careers as salon owners, truck drivers, contractors and more. They arrived with wives, children, even rabbis to plead their cases. And they endured often-humiliating questions; one man was asked how many children he had by how many women. Floridas fight in federal court makes little sense. The state could comply with the dictates of Walkers order by creating a process that is more streamlined, speedy and automatic, removing the capricious and secretive nature of the current rights-restoration scheme and clearing the enormous backlog of cases. Within a few months, Florida officials could be ordered by judges, voters or both to fix its broken process. Leaders should take this last chance to make things right on their own. The Daytona Beach News-JournalOUR OPINIONMake things right on voting rights ANOTHER OPINION OPINIONSteve Skaggs | Publisher Tom McNiff | Executive Editor Whitney Lehnecker | Digital Editor, Lifestyles Editor Tom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 tom.mcniff@dailycommercial.comClear language struggles to thrive in the face of passion, which may help explain why, as our politics becomes more passionate, our language becomes less precise. Perhaps we could be more careful. For example, we often dont bother with the distinction between the terms evidenceŽ and proof.Ž Thus supporters of President Donald Trump argue that there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, when what they mean is that there is no proof. And Trumps critics may argue that there is proof of collusion when what they mean is that there is a whole lot of evidence. It might be helpful if both sides would slow down and acknowledge that we are not going to resolve this difference of opinion until the Mueller report is made public. EvidenceŽ and proofŽ are not identical, but they reside on the same spectrum. The point where evidence shades over into proof is a judgment call, which is why our nation of laws uses judges and juries to decide when the evidence builds up enough weight to tip over into proof. The notorious June 2016 Trump Tower meeting among well-connected Russians and principals in the Trump campaign „ including Trumps son and son-in-law „ provides a practical example. The Trump Tower meeting matters because receiving assistance from a foreign government is apparently a violation of campaign law, and for good reason: We dont want to elect presidents who have clandestine obligations to foreign governments, especially an adversarial power such as Russia. On its face the evidence looks suspicious: Emails indicate that Donald Trump Jr. was excited by the prospect of promised dirtŽ on Hillary Clinton. And, frankly, its hard to imagine high-powered players such as these „ both Russian and American „ convening to discuss the adoption of Russian children, which was a cover story that was subsequently conjured, allegedly with the presidents help. More evidence. Trump has been reluctant to acknowledge any connection with or knowledge of the meeting. But now his long-time fixer, Michael Cohen, contends that Trump knew about the meeting before it occurred. Trump isnt known for his truthfulness „ neither is Cohen „ but its still one mans word against anothers. All of this is evidence, not proof. But this is why the Mueller investigation is important: Trump supporters and Trump critics may look at the conflicting evidence connected with this meeting and be tempted to draw conclusions. Many on both sides probably already have. But our system depends on impartial analysis to make judgments about when evidence shifts to proof. Facts and testimony are compiled and, in criminal cases, presented to grand juries, who make judgments about the evidence and, if its convincing, they pass their findings to another set of citizens „ another jury „ which determines whether the evidence amounts to proof. At least thats the way its supposed to work. The system is sabotaged when either side refuses to accept the process. Trump supporters and Trump critics alike would serve our country well by being willing to defer their judgments about the evidence until the proof is in. Trump supporters have to be willing to accept that Trump might be guilty; likewise Trump critics must be willing to accept his exoneration. John M. Crisp, an op-ed columnist for Tribune News Service, lives in Georgetown, Texas, and can be reached at OPINIONThe di erence between evidence and proofAs I begin to prepare for next semesters classes, I consider what my students need to learn. What aspects of my class will prepare them for the real world? The educational system needs to do the same thing. Every semester I have a week of math labŽ in my college reporting class. The words strike fear in my students. Their eyes roll back in their heads, they foam at the mouth, they sputter the words, But Im a liberal arts major.Ž Its not that bad, really. We cover things like what property tax changes mean for their rent, how interest rates affect their car or credit card payments, and how a 5 percent raise affects their paychecks. We seldom get past property taxes before they start realizing that if they own property, they will pay property taxes forever. And it always surprises me that they dont already know this. Its a failing of our educational system that students dont leave high school with this basic understanding, among other things. Thats why we need to bring back the old home economics class. Call it Skills for LifeŽ and make it mandatory in high schools. Teach basic economics, budgeting, comparisonshopping, basic cooking skills and time management. Give them a better start in real life than they get now. How cool would it be if our kids knew how to shop for groceries and stay within a budget? Wouldnt parents feel a sense of relief if their kids understood how interest accrues on their credit cards? And shouldnt everyone have one great go-to meal they could cook if guests pop in? These are the skills we learned in high school home economics, the skills all kids should have, whether they are collegebound or heading straight into the workforce. Ive heard the argument that young people should learn these things from their parents, but my experience is that they dont, for various reasons. Some parents dont have time. Some parents dont have the skills. Some parents dont think about it until its time for their kids to leave home. And, since part of teaching is exposing kids to your own situation, some parents dont think its any of their kids business. But high school is the perfect time to introduce lifes basics. Students are beginning to feel like adults. They can see the light at the end of the high school tunnel. Theyre thinking about what life will be like for them. Home economics signals to them that we know theyre growing up and we want to help them along in lifes journey. So our high school curriculum needs to step up for students. Yes, English, history, algebra and science are important. But what good are they if you dont know how to cook dinner or figure out how a FICO score affects interest on credit cards? How impressed would a potential employer be if a young job applicant could discuss killer time management skills? Knowledge is power. Its time to pass that power on to the next generation.

A8 Wednesday, August 8, 2018 | television Monday night, Rouhani seemed to suggest that direct talks with Trump could be possible.Thats something North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-hu, who visited Tehran on Tuesday and met with its leadership, knows firsthand.Whether Iran should choose a North Korea-style photo-op with the Ameri-can president who backed out of the nuclear deal or abandon the unraveling accord and increase its ura-nium enrichment remains a fiercely debated question in Iran. But everyone agrees something has to be done soon, as sporadic protests across the country of 80 million people only add to the pressure.The situation is not good right now; nothing is clear, said Ebrahim Gholamnejad, a 41-year-old carpenter. The economy is turning into a jungle.The newly imposed American sanctions target U.S. dollar financial trans-actions, Irans automotive sector, and the purchase of commercial planes and metals, including gold. Even stronger sanctions targeting Irans oil sector and central bank are to be re-imposed in early November.On Tuesday, German car and truck maker Daimler AG said it was suspending its very limited activi-ties in Iran and shuttering a representative office. Euro-pean companies had known since Trumps announce-ment in May that sanctions were coming back. Airbus at that time suspended plane deliveries to Iran; of 98 orders, only one A321 had been delivered, plus two A330s that were sold to a company that leased them to an Iranian customer.As uncertainty over the Iran nuclear deal grew after Trump entered the White House, Irans already-ane-mic economy nosedived. The countrys monthly inflation rate has hit double digits again and the national unemployment rate is 12.5 percent. Among youth, it is even worse, with around 25 percent out of a job.Irans currency, the rial, now trades over double its government-set rate to the U.S. dollar. Trying to stem the loss, the Iranian government five months ago shut down all private currency exchange shops, but the black market has thrived.On Tuesday, central bank chief Abdolnasser Hemmati allowed private currency exchanges to reopen. Shops welcomed customers, though some displayed no exchange rates late into the morning amid confusion over how much the troubled rial was truly worth.Iranian authorities recently arrested 45 people, including the central banks deputy chief, as part of a crackdown on financial fraud. On Tuesday, Irans state-controlled television aired a 30-minute documentary applauding the central banks new eco-nomic decisions.The hard-line Keyhan newspaper, which previ-ously lampooned Rouhani, bore his picture on the front page with a large headline quoting him saying: The way we can surpass all sanctions is to have unity.But what to do next remains an open question. Iran continues to abide by the nuclear deal it struck with the Obama administration and other world powers, which limits its enrichment of uranium in exchange for the lifting of sanctions, and makes it impossible for Iran to quickly develop a nuclear weapon. Iran has always said its nuclear program is entirely peaceful.In recent weeks, Iran has prominently displayed its centrifuges and threatened to resume enriching uranium at higher rates. At one point Rouhani renewed a long-standing Iranian threat to close off the Strait of Hormuz, through which a third of all oil traded by sea passes.Trump for his part has ricocheted between threats and promises to speak with Iranian officials without preconditions, offering mixed messages to both the Iranian public and its government. That continued Tuesday, as he described American actions in a tweet as the most biting sanctions ever imposed, and in November they ratchet up to yet another level.Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States, he wrote. I am asking for WORLD PEACE, nothing less!John Bolton, the U.S. national security adviser, said the intent of sanctions is not to bring about Iranian regime change.But we definitely want to put maximum pressure on the government, and its not just to come back to discuss fixing a deal thats basically not fix-able, Bolton said Tuesday on Fox News. We want to see a much broader retreat by Iran from their support for international terrorism, their belligerent activity in the Middle East and their ballistic missile, nuclear-related program.Though Iranians already are angered by Trump putting their nation on his travel ban list, some say talks with the U.S. president might be necessary. Others insist that Iran, which has weathered decades of pre-vious sanctions, should stand its ground. IRANFrom Page A1

As first-timers, its almost unheard of to place, but we took first in chicken and fourth in ribs.ŽDan and Elaine were hooked. They continued entering professional competitions for the next two years. The popularity of the sauce was so great that they decided to take it to the streets and sell at local markets.We would sell our barbe-cue sauce and seasonings with meat samples, and people kept asking us where our restaurant was located,Ž Dan said. We always thought it would be an awesome idea, but we had to work our way up to it.ŽDan and Elaine began distributing their sauce in 2007 to stores in Ovideo, Orlando and Jacksonville as well as online.

It's a week of orientation, with half days of school giving the kids and teachers the opportunity to get back into the routine of things. It's funny how a few weeks of ignoring the rules takes us almost six months to recover. In the summer, our formal meal times and meals seem to all but disappear, and diets and lifestyle changes have long been abandoned. It seems like I cant get back on track until the first of the year, after the holidays and family celebrations. I have made a declaration that I am going to pick myself up out of this summer food slump and get back on track now, rather than later. All of our lives, we have been taught traditional meal planning, with the protein, vegetables, grains and so forth. I am going to shake things up a bit by saying we have been going about it all the wrong way. Yes, meal planning as we know it is daunting, boring and many times overwhelming. So don't plan full meals; the bento box is the way forward. In my personal chef business, I have been practicing the bento box approach for years. I encourage my clients to ask for prepared parts of a meal that are interchangeable. The bento box is a common meal solution popular in Japanese cuisine. A traditional bento box meal is packed with single portions of prepared singular ingredients that can be used in a myriad of combinations. I also like bento box lunches, because it is easy to please a crowd if you need to pack multiple lunches. The key to successful bento boxes are well-seasoned components. If you want to use ground beef this week, try seasoning it with a Mexicaninspired blend of spices such as cumin, chili powder and garlic salt. Although the meat has a dedicated flavor it can be paired with a creamy lentil soup. Over the next few weeks I will help you make life easier by sharing with you recipes that make packing a bento box meal simple, easy and delicious. This week, lets talk spice blends. Spice blends can be used on any component of the box, from protein to vegetables and grains. Here are a couple of spice blends that you can add to any component of your bento box. These blends dont contain any salt and usually require only one or two tablespoons per dish to season. My suggestion if you are not familiar with the seasoning then use threefourths to one tablespoon of the blend and adjust accordingly. Next week we will discuss grains and starches that will compliment any bento box.ZE'S MILD CURRY BLEND Ingredients: 2 tablespoons cumin 2 tablespoons ground coriander 2 teaspoons ground turmeric teaspoon black pepper teaspoon ground mustard 1 teaspoon ground ginger 2 tablespoons dried parsley ZE'S ROGAN JOSH BLEND Ingredients: 1 teaspoon cardamom 1 teaspoon cloves teaspoon ground ginger 4 tablespoons paprika 1 tablespoon chili powder. 1 tablespoon cinnamon 3 tablespoons cumin 2 tablespoons coriander 1 teaspoon cayenne (or more, if you like it spicy) ZE'S MEDITERRANEAN SPICE BLEND Ingredients: 2 tablespoons ground coriander 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon 1 tablespoon ground cumin tablespoon red pepper ” akes 1 tablespoon dried oregano 1 tablespoon dried ground rosemary Directions fro all: Combine all ingredients in an airtight glass container, store in a cool dark place.Ze Carter is a food columnist for the Daily Commercial.

B2 Wednesday, August 8, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comBy Ari LeVauxMore Content NowOn the fifth floor of the apartment where I grew up, my young culinary horizons were broadened by a Korean family down the hall. By second grade, I could hold a bowl of rice to my mouth and shovel it in with chopsticks, thanks to the diligent coaching of Christina, Wendy and Karen, who were about my age. The Park girls also taught me how to carefully pull noodles, one by one, from a bowl of high-end Japanese instant ramen. Sometimes their parents doctored the ramen with the likes of seaweed, green onion and egg. It hampered the noodle games, but by college I had some valuable life skills, along with disdain for my dormies and their cases of Top Ramen, to which they proudly added hot dogs and canned chicken. Today, I doctor with produce from the farmers market, but I still use the Park familys instant ramen of choice: Japanese brand Sapporo Ichiban. The method Different ingredients must be added at different times, depending on how long they need to cook. I start with bacon (just a basic flavor, no honey or maple „ I like pancetta). Cook slowly on low to make it a little crispy, and leave yourself time to remember ingredients you want to add. Then, add anything else that may benefit from some time simmering in bacon grease. Mushrooms are one option, though I think you would want to add butter, which is just fine in ramen. Zucchini, radish and garlic are also good early additions. Tomatoes can be added now, so they have time to spill their juices, along with half an onion, which can add flavor but be easily avoided later on. Toasted sesame oil adds a great flavor to most ramen, and now is as good a time as any to add it. Stir it around to even out the brown, place the dry brick of noodles atop everything else in the pan, and cover. This gets the noodles cooking, ever so slightly, in the steam of the simmering veggies. Meanwhile, start a kettle of water on the stove. When the water boils, add the last round of ingredients to the pan. In my case, that includes a cracked egg and maybe some tofu. Sprinkle the flavor packet onto the stuff in the pan, along with an appropriate amount of chile powder, if using, and pour in the water. I like it brothy, so I add a cup or more than Im supposed to. The hot water will continue to boil as you add it to the pan, and will create a bit of steam, so turn on the vent and be careful. Now you can add anything that needs just a bit of cooking, such as peas, corn or pieces of cabbage. Make sure noodles are submerged. It should take about two minutes for the noodles to cook, then kill the heat. Taste the broth and add seasoning sauces. I like a dash of fish sauce, a splash of soy, a tablespoon of oyster sauce, but it changes depending on the soup base. If Im using beef flavored I add hoisin sauce. Sometimes a little black pepper is nice. Cook for a minute, covered, and serve alongside a garnish plate of raw veggies to add on top: fresh herbs, radicchio, green onions, seaweed, fresh cucumber slices, iceberg lettuce, even slices or wedges of low-acid heirloom tomatoes like brandywine. These veggies may wilt a bit in the heat but will still provide a fresh crunch. The Koreans, of course, like to add kimchi. Last but not least, the spices. I recommend sliced jalapeos and a squirt of sriracha, but there are many ways to add heat to a bowl of noodles, like the already-added chile powder or splashes of your favorite hot sauce while eating.

PAGE 11 | Wednesday, August 8, 2018 B3If the latest trip to the beach has left you in need of a moisturizing masque or something to fade the freckles, cheer up. From bananas to buttermilk and oatmeal to olive oil, your pantry shelves are full of ingredients for homemade beauty aids. As a teenager, I worried about the freckles sprinkled so generously over my nose. My attitude changed when an older gentleman confided that he had always admired the movie star, Myrna Loy, and that in his opinion, her freckles were an important part of her charm. But if you arent inclined to love your freckles, or if youve reached the stage of being distressed by age spots, one of the simplest remedies is plain old lemon juice. Apply it to the affected area; let it set for about 15 minutes, then rinse skin clean. Repeat daily. No lemons on hand? Well, it should come as no surprise that apple cider vinegar is also effective. After all, Helen of Troy used vinegar as a cosmetic. Use a cotton ball to apply undiluted apple cider vinegar to the spots for ten minutes at least twice a day, and within a few weeks, the spots should fade, or even disappear completely. Then theres onion juice. Grate half a medium onion into a small bowl lined with cheesecloth, and squeeze the juice out into the bowl. Stir in two teaspoons of distilled white vinegar, and three teaspoons of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide „ thats the stuff you keep on hand for first aid for minor cuts and scrapes. Dab solution on with a cotton swab or pad, and let dry. Repeat morning and evening. Whatever remedy you select for those age spots or freckles, remember theyre caused by excessive exposure to the sun. To make them fade faster, and keep new ones from cropping up, use sunscreen faithfully. Frugal and beautyconscious cooks have been using mayonnaise as a moisturizer for a long time. But now that we have so many different varieties, we need to remember to use the type made with whole eggs. And certainly the mayo version with sriracha seasoning should be kept away from the face. Once youve chosen the proper type of mayonnaise, spread it over your face, leave it on for 20 minutes, then wipe off the excess and rinse your face with cool water. Equally simple is the buttermilk beauty treatment. Spread on the buttermilk and leave it on for about 20 minutes. Wash it off with warm water, and pat the skin dry. Dont forget honey. Thoroughly mix a teaspoon of honey with two tablespoons of heavy whipping cream. Leave on at least half an hour, then rinse with tepid water. And isnt it lucky that summer is also the season of luscious tropical fruits, with all those wonderful vitamins? Give your face a quick treat by rubbing it with the inside surface of the peeling from mango, papaya or banana. Or mash a ripe banana with a few drops of peanut oil, spread it over the face and neck, and leave it on for at least half an hour. Wash off with tepid water. For a good night cream, stir the juice of half a lemon into a cup of plain yogurt, and use as you would any night cream. Or massage extra-virgin, coldpressed olive oil into the neck and face. Leave on overnight. The next morning, rinse first with tepid water, then cool water. When waging war on wrinkles or trying to avoid getting them, its important to stay hydrated. Ive read that a good way to be sure youre getting enough water is to pinch the skin on the back of the hand. If the pinched skin springs back into place, youre properly hydrated; if not, you need to be drinking more water. One good hydration trick is to add a few drops of essential oil, such as lavender, to a cup of water, put it into a misting bottle, and spray it around your head several times a day.

[GATEHOUSE MEDIA FILE] Mary Ryder By Becky Krystal The Washington PostI take as much joy in eating a square of excellent chocolate as the next chocolate lover. That being said, Im never going to turn down a dessert made with chocolate. Fudge, to me, is one of the best happy mediums. Its a canvas that allows you to add more flavors and ingredients while still allowing the chocolate to shine through. This recipe appealed to me for how closely it resembles Rocky Road ice cream and smores. Credit Jessie Sheehan with uncovering an original 1928 recipe that she includes in her new book, The Vintage Baker: More Than 50 Recipes From Butterscotch Pecan Curls to Sour Cream Jumbles.Ž I especially appreciate Sheehans work because instead of worrying about a candy thermometer to get the timing and temperature right, she uses sweetened condensed milk, which she says cuts the time needed to create the right consistency. The fudge, however, is not overly sweet. The recipe calls for dark chocolate, and we liked the fudge best with 70 percent cacao chocolate. As I mentioned, chocolate is still the star ingredient, so be sure you use high-quality chocolate. The batches I made with Guittard were excellent, while another using lesser grocery store bars did not have the same richness or depth of flavor. Another thing I like about this recipe: It all comes together in a single bowl. Just dont cut corners by changing the method of melting the chocolate. Here youll create a double boiler by setting a heatproof bowl filled with the chocolate over a saucepan of heated water. By using indirect heat to gently melt the chocolate, you reduce the risk of burning it, which could happen if you put it directly into the saucepan, according to Matt Dixon, the lead chocolate maker at Washington chocolatier Harper Macaw. The cacao solids (thats what the percentage stands for) are especially susceptible to scorching. When using a double boiler, Dixon cautions, be sure not to get water into the chocolate, which could cause it to seize up and develop clumps. (If that does happen, Cooks Illustrated recommends, counterintuitively, reversing the process by stirring in boiling water 1 teaspoon at a time until its smooth again.) Dont be afraid to use this fudge recipe as a base and then switch things up with other mix-ins. Dried fruit, different types of nuts, toffee bits: It all will work well here.This salted fudge is a simple way to satisfy your cravingSalted Marshmallow Walnut Fudge.

Fill a medium saucepan with a few inches of water; place over medium-low heat. Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl that can sit over the saucepan (to create a double boiler; the bowl should be large enough to eventually contain all the ingredients). Once the chocolate starts to melt, use a ” exible spatula to stir constantly until smooth. Add the table salt, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract; increase the heat to medium or medium-high, stirring to incorporate for about a minute or two. The chocolate may seize up a bit, but keep stirring. Once the mixture is smooth, stir for about 1 minute more, then remove from the heat. Add the walnuts and marshmallows; stir or fold them in until evenly distributed (the marshmallows will not melt). Transfer the fudge mixture to the prepared pan. Cover with wax paper or plastic wrap and ” atten with your hands, then uncover just long enough to sprinkle the surface with ” aky sea salt and turbinado sugar.

B4 Wednesday, August 8, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comBy Tim CarmanThe Washington PostThey gathered around a large table. It was 2004, and the seven friends were just a couple years into their postcollege careers. They were, in other words, not exactly flush. Sandra Beasley, now a poet and teacher in Washington, remembers how pleasurable the evening was „ until the group came up short on their dinner check, which totaled about $160. As Beasley retells it, five of her friends had paid with cash, enough to cover their share of the bill, plus tip. The other two paid with credit cards. When the waiter brought the cards back to the table, the charges were about $10 higher than what the cardholders expected, Beasley recalls, and they still had not covered the tip. There were some rumblings that the waiter had pocketed part of the cash. Worse, there were suspicions that a cheapskate or two lurked at the table. It was very awkward,Ž Beasley says. The stresses and frustrations of check-splitting are not exclusive to 20-somethings, but they seem to hit this subset of diners harder, and with more frequency, than other groups. Restaurateurs will tell you that electronic point-of-sale, or POS, systems make it easier than ever to split checks, especially if everyone uses a credit card. These systems can be programmed to split a tab umpteen ways, and some even allow servers to split the cost of an individual item among several diners. With that said, theres a reason some restaurants limit splits to two or three credit cards: because asking a server to split a check 10 ways can cause problems for the front of the house, says Mikala Brennan, the chef and owner of Hula Girl Bar and Grill in Virginia. Mostly, it ties up a POS system, preventing other servers from punching in orders. It takes between one and two minutes to spit out a check for each customer, Brennan says. The best way to handle these difficult splits, says Jared Barker, general manager of All-Purpose in Washington, is to notify your server ahead of time. Oh, and stay in the same seat. This way, your server can punch in dishes according to your seat number, which makes closing out your check much faster.How to split the check without the accusations and awkwardnessBy Bonnie S. BenwickThe Washington PostA sauce can make or break a dish „ a component so important that it merits its own pan, culinary school certification and cookbooks. But in this 20-minute recipe, its a simple enterprise: a little butter, a little garlic, a judicious amount of halfand-half and fresh herbs. Rosemary and thyme coat each bite-size helping of salmon to provide texture and flavor. and then a last-minute toss of chopped parsley heightens all those herby aromas. The fish finishes cooking in the pan sauce, and before you know it, youve created something pretty special for a weeknight. We liked serving with potatoes (read to the end of the recipe), but you could add a few handfuls of fresh spinach while the sauce is bubbling instead.

Melt the butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Once its foam begins to subside, add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds, until fragrant. Add the herbed salmon pieces, skin sides down; cook for 2 to 3 minutes or just until the skin gets a little crisped and you can see the salmon turning from dark to lighter pink (and opaque). The butter should be turning brown by now; pour in the half-and-half and stir it in. Season the contents of the pan lightly with salt and pepper; cook for a minute or two, checking to see that all the salmon is cooked through, then remove from the heat.

Allen and Curry were productive members of a deep defensive line rotation that helped the Philadel-phia Eagles win the Super Bowl last winter, while Unrein was part of Den-vers AFC championship team five years ago. Vea was the 12th pick of the draft. Understandably, McCoy is excited.We brought in four new guys that have all played in a Super Bowl, and three of them have won it. Thats a lot of experience. Guys who know what to do and how to do it „ do it the right way,Ž the ninth-year pro said.Just the (defensive line) room overall is dif-ferent, a lot of experience, and a lot of knowledge. Guys bouncing ideas off of each other, things youve never heard before. ... Its only just going to make us great in the long run,Ž McCoy added. But, weve got a lot of work to do.ŽCurry, who started every game for the Eagles last season, said the linemen are building chemistry and learning more and more about each other every day in practice.My biggest thing is Im telling everyone: winning is contagious,Ž Curry said.Its the National Football League, everybody is good,Ž Curry added. It comes down to discipline and how bad do you want it.ŽMcCoy is doing his part, too.In addition to picking the brains of the veteran newcomers, he has been spending extra time after practice helping some of the younger players trying to earn jobs.

PAGE 15 | Wednesday, August 8, 2018 C3its a foul,Ž NFL referee John Parry said. Will there be plays when helmets start 20 inches apart, a left guard (going against) a nose tackle? And its a run play where helmets do make contact … Yes, there will be. Will some of those get called if we got the angle? Well make the call. Are we trying to take steps to make it significantly safer? Absolutely.ŽThe NFL is attempting to educate players and coaches on the new rules before the regular season opens next month and has sent officiating crews to meet with teams. The Jaguars coaches and play-ers met with Parry and his officiating crew last week to discuss the rule and how to avoid violating it.They also worked the Jaguars practices last week.Any time there is something new, and there is a lot of stuff out there and a lot is being said, sometimes youve just got to take a step back and say, Hey, wait a minute, lets get these officials in here,Ž Mar-rone said. I thought that John and the guys that he brought in with him did an unbelievable job of communicating.ŽUnder the previous rule, only the players who made contact with the crown of the helmet were penalized. Now any player „ including offensive linemen, quar-terbacks and running backs „ who lowers his head to deliver a hit will draw a 15-yard penalty and face possible ejection.Ive got to make sure I drill some good technique in on that because I am one of those guys who plays like that sometimes,Ž offensive guard A.J. Cann said. It depends on what they see is an unnecessary play with lowering the head. Obviously, it is going to happen. It depends on how you decide what (a penalty) is.ŽMarrone said his staff is constantly making sure his players do not use the crown of their helmets when making contact. Marrone said they keep track of it when filming practices.Youre talking about field position or putting yourself in tough situations, so were telling players that,Ž Marrone said. What we did now is we took the practice clips that sometimes (assistant coaches) Keenan (McCa-rdell) and Perry (Fewell) will say, Well, thats offensive. No its defen-sive. That stuff goes on. Were very competitive as coaches. Well pull those clips and put them to the side and when the officials come, well break it out and show them and have them go through it with us. Thats a great learning experience for us as a staff and I think thats a great learning experience for us as players where we can help the players play the game better.ŽThe NFL also imple-mented a new kickoff rule for the 2018 season after medical data revealed earlier this year that NFL players are five times more likely to suffer a concussion on a kickoff than on a play from the line of scrimmage.The new kickoff rules will require that eight of the 11 players on the kick-off team be aligned in the setup zoneŽ within 15 yards of the football. And no blocking can occur within the setup zone until the ball touches the ground if its not caught first.The ultimate goal, I think, is to make the game safer,Ž defensive end Calais Campbell said. Sometimes some of the rules you like and some of the rules you dont. Im a fan of special teams as a big way for a lot of young guys to make the team. Its a way to really affect the game. If you get a good kickoff return or a big hit on a kickoff you can really change momentum. Its definitely tough because there are some rules that will adjust the way its played. We dont really even know how it will affect the game until we get out there and play the game and see how it does, but it is interesting.Ž HELMETFrom Page C1and win it.ŽBusch looks like hes out to prove he can win every-thing. He earned his sixth win two weeks back at Pocono to tie Kevin Har-vick for most victories this season. Busch was in the thick of things at Watkins Glen last week until an error by his pit crew pushed him to the back of the pack. Still, Busch finished third for his 17th top-five finish in 22 races this year.Busch said his run this year is a result of good chemistry and a team on a mission to succeed. He wont let that slip in the final four races of the regular season, which starts Sunday at Michigan International Speedway.Our motivation right now is to continue our dominant stretch, continue to finish with top fives, win-ning races, continue to add bonus points,Ž he said. We want to finish the season on top. We want to win the reg-ular season championship.ŽWinning is a powerful motivator, as Busch proved at a go-kart track on the Grand Strand to promote Darlington Raceways Southern 500 on Sept. 2. He raced contest winners on a three-lap, Watkins Glen-like road course full of chicanes and hair-pin turns.Busch, always starting on the pole, would drive a few feet before pulling to the side to let the 10 other competitors pass „ then methodically chase them down one-by-one until he crossed the finish line first with a large smile on his face.I guess I figured out how to run this thing,Ž Busch joked after one of his five kart wins.Busch also visited the Palmetto Academy for Learning Motorsports, a charter high school in Conway, South Carolina, with a magnet program dedicated to the skills nec-essary in racing.Buschs lone series title came during a turbulent 2015 when he missed 11 races because of a horrific crash at Daytona in the Xfinity race to start the season. But Busch prevailed through surgeries and a medical waiver to compete for the championship despite his missed races to outlast Harvick at Homestead for the championship.Busch was loaded with confidence at Homestead the next two seasons „ he won four races in 2016 and five last year „ he would add to his championship resume. Instead, Busch wound up third two years ago to Jimmie Johnson and runner up in 2017 to Martin Truex Jr .Busch, 33, understood he was letting too many chances slip by in the prime of his career. So he and his crew, led by chief Adam Stevens, rededicated themselves to consistent excellence in everything they do. So far, its worked like few other seasons before. NASCARFrom Page C1Hallow shines a little less brightly on Spieth in St. Louis.Hes yet to win since Royal Birkdale, the missed cuts becoming too frequent for comfort. He looked as if he might be turning the corner at the British Open last month when he shot 65 on Saturday to surge into contention, but a birdie-less Sunday and final-round 76 dropped him to the wayside.He followed that with three rounds in the 70s at the Bridgestone Invitational last week, leaving him a full 20 shots off the pace „ and outside the top 20 for the eighth consecutive event.Im a little under the radar this year, and I dont mind it,Ž Spieth acknowl-edged, but at the same time, this tournament will always be circled until hopefully I win it one day.ŽThe 25-year-old Spieth has only taken that one crack at joining Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Tiger Woods in complet-ing the modern Grand Slam. But history sug-gests that if he doesnt lift the Wannamaker Trophy soon, Spieth might never accomplish the feat.Nicklaus needed just three tries after winning the PGA in 63 to win his first British Open, and Player likewise needed three tries after the 65 U.S. Open to win his first British.Woods needed about a month between the U.S. Open and British Open in 2000, then added the PGA a few weeks later and the Masters the following year to hold all four majors at the same time.I only had to think about it for about a month,Ž Woods said of the career Slam. I had won the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach and the Open Championship was at St. Andrews a month later, so I wasnt really asked a lot, other than, What would it be like to complete the career Grand Slam at St. Andrews?ŽHe certainly didnt have to endure the ques-tions that followed Arnold Palmer, who tried for more than three decades to finish the Slam at the PGA, or Tom Watson, or spent 24 years chasing it.Or the questions that have started to follow Rory McIlroy, who needs to win the Masters, and Phil Mickelson, who has played the U.S. Open five times without capturing the only major hes missing. Having had a few goes at it, I think less expecta-tions is better,Ž McIlroy said. Trying to take pres-sure off yourself, trying to treat it like any normal week, just trying to win the golf tournament that week, sort of put it out of your head that what win-ning this golf tournament would mean in terms of your legacy and your place in the game. So, yeah, I mean I can prob-ably relate a little bit.ŽIf nothing else, Spieth should have plenty of support this week.His beloved grandfa-ther, Bob Julius, and most of his mothers side of the family was raised in the St. Louis area. And while Gramps has been there for many of his career-defining moments, there are many distant relatives that will get to see him compete for the first time this week.Its really fun,Ž Spieth said, when you get a chance to play in front of family.ŽIt would be even more fun to make history in front of them.Im sure Jordan feels a little bit different this week than he does the other three majors, but thats normal,Ž McIlroy said. Its a big deal, but I think, once you get out on the golf course and you start the tournament, all youre thinking about is trying to shoot good scores and hit good golf shots.So hes shown over the past few years hes mentally very good, so Im sure he wont have a problem.Ž SPEITHFrom Page C1


C4 Wednesday, August 8, 2018 | RECREATIONFor the most part, the sport of rowing is pretty hard work. But on Satur-day in Clermont, the Lake County Rowing Associa-tion turned the sport into pure enjoyment as it held the Clermont Cardboard Classic at Waterfront Park. The races served as a fundraiser for LCRA, which is based at the Clermont Boathouse. There were 25 registered entries, although not all showed for the races, and plenty of people on hand to watch. Competitors were divided into four age groups, from age 5 up. Paddles could be made of anything, but boats had to be made of cardboard. And not all the action was on the water. There was food, drinks and live music.Rowing for the fun of itKorrin Dykhouse, front, and Tracey Barton sprint to the “ nish line during the Clermont Cardboard Classic on Saturday at Waterfront Park. The two are teachers at Imagine South Lake Charter School, and anticipate that their students will design and build their own outrigger cardboard boat for next years race. [LINDA CHARLTON / CORRESPONDENT] Jackson Strausberger won the tadpole division (ages 5-9) based largely on his decision, early on, to not use his paddle, but to use his arms instead during the Clermont Cardboard Classic on Saturday at Waterfront Park. [LINDA CHARLTON / CORRESPONDENT] Lucas Rannal is getting an idea of just how dif“ cult some of the boats can be to steer, as he launches into Lake Minneola during the Clermont Cardboard Classic on Saturday at Waterfront Park. [LINDA CHARLTON / CORRESPONDENT] The crew from Lake County Rowing Association completed their race the hard way „ with their boat underwater during the Clermont Cardboard Classic on Saturday at Waterfront Park.

DEAR ABBY: My daughter "Scarlet" has a precious 18-month-old baby girl I'll call Sierra. Scarlet, her husband and the baby spend a lot of time at their beach house, where they have several full-time employees, including a nanny, housekeeper, cook and gardener. These employees have been at the house for years and are practically part of our family. The problem is, my daughter and her husband allow Sierra to walk around the house and beachfront naked throughout the day. I have told Scarlet on several occasions that I don't feel comfortable with Sierra being exposed like that around the employees. A naked toddler might make them feel awkward, plus a child should be raised to understand that her private parts are just that -private -and not for anybody outside of her immediate family to look at. Additionally, from a sanitary perspective, Sierra sits down on dirty, potentially bacteria-infested places such as kitchen tiles, grass and beach sand, which could cause infections. My daughter calls me old-fashioned and tells me not to worry. What do you think? -MORE MODEST IN NEVADA DEAR MORE MODEST: I seriously doubt that anyone is going to be embarrassed by the sight of a naked toddler. I know you are well-meaning, and your points may be valid, but frankly, I think you should let your daughter raise her daughter.DEAR ABBY: I'm 61 and a recent widower. I befriended a new co-worker, a woman who is single and 41. We started going out socially, and I was getting back into life. I just found out she and my 24-year-old son have been dating for the last four months. Neither one mentioned anything about it to me. They were sneaking behind my back, and she continued to do things with me. When I realized what was going on, I confronted her and told her I felt taken advantage of and deceived. I stopped speaking with her after that. Am I wrong to feel this way? Her relationship has come between my son and me. And yes, I realize it takes two to tango. -IT TAKES TWO IN THE EAST DEAR IT TAKES TWO: Your son and your co-worker should have been upfront with you. That neither one was shows a lack of character. However, there is an upside to this. You now realize you are ready to go on living after the death of your wife. Get involved in community activities; go on some dating sites and you will meet someone better suited than your co-worker. What happened with her is yet another unfortunate example of what can go wrong in an ofce romance.DEAR ABBY: I have a quick question. How long after a death should you wait to send a sympathy card? I have looked at your mom's and aunt's old columns, Amy Vanderbilt and Emily Post and cannot nd an answer. -NEEDS TO KNOW IN GEORGIA DEAR NEEDS: The time to send a sympathy card is when you receive the sad news. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at or P.O. 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 Baby in the buff causes grandma some concern HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR WEDNESDAY, AUG. 8, 2018:This year you might experience mood swings, uctuating from extraordinarily happy to sad. Be glad that you can feel a range of emotions instead of being numb or frozen. If you are single, you might meet someone who could consider this unpredictable quality to be exciting and authentic. You will be appreciated for being yourself. If you are attached, your sweetie might nd the seesaw ride you are on a bit intense, but he or she will adjust to your frequent changes of mood. Your sweetie also will be delighted by the way you reveal more and more of yourself. You can trust CANCER with your vulnerabilities.ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) You might harbor some strong feelings. In fact, you might not even know or recognize these feelings if you have a tendency toward suppression. You put your best foot forward, and others recognize your positive attitude. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Speak your mind and be willing to hear opinions that might not be acceptable in some way. Go with the ow with an offer involving property and real estate. A potential partner or a loved one could make an offer that you might not want to decline. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Be aware of the costs of proceeding as you have been. Be willing to say what you feel, but know that you can expect an over-the-top reaction from someone. A new beginning becomes possible when you fully assess the situation. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) The Moon in your sign allows greater give-and-take. You have a unique method of assessing a person and turning a situation around. You understand others better than most when you move away from your preoccupations and simply detach. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) You sense once again that someone might not be giving you the whole story. To nd out what is going on, you might want to dig around some. What you hear might be only a small piece of the story. Honor a change of pace. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) You will want to have a discussion with someone you care a lot about. Know that this person might not be able to tolerate any fast changes; in fact, he or she tends to shut down when life seems to spin out of control. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Events catapult you into the limelight, which suits you at the moment. Someone might be somewhat reactive to all the attention being focused only on you, and could pull away. Understand the problems that this person could be dealing with. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You could be at the top of your game and wanting to try a different approach. Your sense of well-being helps you brave any path. You are unusually fortunate on this point. Knowing that you have a rabbits foot in your back pocket, act accordingly. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) You could be a bit off-kilter, not knowing which way is best for you. Work toward a long-term project with the advice and help of a key associate. Together, you make a great team. Your ability to identify with others is heightened. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22JAN. 19) You could face a problem when dealing with a close friend or a partner whose mood changes with unusual frequency. Your method of dealing with this person might need to change. Lecturing or scolding will not work. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Your personality diminishes others resistance, but does not help you move a relationship to where you want it to be. Playing games, such as distancing yourself, wont work. Be more forthright in your decisions. Share your process with a friend. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Your imagination is at its peak. It might be challenging or difcult to move a situation forward, as you could be distracted by various thoughts. Reach out to someone who understands the situation better. | Wednesday, August 8, 2018 C7 TODAY IS WEDNESDAY, AUG. 8, the 220th day of 2018. There are 145 days left in the year.

Thats what Im working for today. Another day, another dollar. Sure cant buy my blues away.Ž „ Alison Krauss, Another Day, Another DollarŽ My high school economics teacher once explained inflation by saying, Money tends to be worth a little less every year.Ž Interested in finance even back then, I asked her, Why do things have to cost more every year, just because?Ž She apparently wasnt in the mood to take me on a journey through economic history because the answer I received was: Thats just the way it is and has always been.Ž I memorized what would be required for the test that week and moved on. But the answer never satisfied me. As I grew older and learned more about financial history, I realized why her answer bothered me. It wasnt true. Moderate to high inflation has been a feature of the world that baby boomers grew up with and have experienced consistently throughout our lives, but history tells us that the formative era for boomers was somewhat exceptional. According to a recent study by the Bank of England, the United Kingdoms version of our Federal Reserve, over the last 700 years, global inflation has averaged only 1.08 percent annually. Back to the original question: Why dont we have inflation all the time? Lets look back to the late 1800s, the last prolonged period of deflation outside of the Great Depression, for clues. The latter part of the 19thcentury was an age of global economic growth. It was also an era of technological innovation (internal combustion engine, electrification, indoor plumbing, etc.), communications advances (telegraph) and heavy globalization with expanded international trade. And it was a period of declining prices on most goods. Plug in the words internetŽ and iPhoneŽ and it sounds a lot like the last 30 years, right? If left undisturbed by war or plagues, over time, the dynamic duo of capitalism and technology tend to produce an abundance of cheap goods quite efficiently. Thankfully, there havent been any multinational, global wars in recent decades, and the international order has been relatively sanguine. Thus weve been able to create an age of oversupply. In other words, with very few exceptions, if a company makes a physical product, then oftentimes someone, somewhere is likely willing to make it cheaper. And those do-itcheaper competitors are easier than ever to find, thanks to the telegraph of our day, the internet. In many ways, low inflation or deflation reflects a successful society. Inflation accompanies scarcity. Deflation denotes abundance. Its a good problem to have. Its also one thats likely to stay with us. This is part one of a twopart series on deflation.
