He said he wanted to call the revamped trade pact the United States-Mexico Trade AgreementŽ because, in his view, NAFTA had earned a reputation as being harmful to American workers.But first, he said, he would give Canada a chance to get back in „ if theyd like to negotiate fairly.Ž To inten-sify the pressure on Ottawa to agree to his terms, the presi-dent threatened to impose new taxes on Canadian auto imports.Canadas NAFTA negotia-tor, Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland, is cutting short a trip to Europe to fly to Wash-ington on Tuesday to try to restart talks.We will only sign a new NAFTA that is good for Canada and good for the middle class,Ž said Adam Austen, a spokesman for Freeland, adding that Can-adas signature is required.ŽThere is still a great deal of uncertainty „ trepidation, nervousness „ a feeling that we are on the outside look-ing in,Ž said Peter MacKay, a US, Mexico, strike tentative trade dealBy Billy House and Laura LitvanBloombergThe selection of John McCains replacement in the Senate sets up a potentially defining struggle between competing factions within the Republican party „ the old guard represented by the late Arizona senator and the iconoclastic wing led by President Donald Trump.The states Republican governor, Doug Ducey, said he wont make an announce-ment about the seat until McCain is laid to rest next Sunday at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. Under Arizona law, McCains successor must be a member of his party.Although McCains successor will be in office through 2020, the choice could send ripple effects through this Novembers election: Ducey will be on the ballot and could find himself judged sharply within his own party on his pick. Meanwhile, the states other Senate seat will be settled in what independent analysts say will be a close contest, and the choice could color the outcome.Choice for successor lays bare struggleIn this June 3, 2016, photo, Sen.

[ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] See DEAL, A6 See CHOICE, A6 By Frank Stanfield frankstanfield@dailycommercial.comLEESBURG … It was civil, but the talk Monday was that the city doesnt want to fight the Civil War all over again. By a 3-2 vote, city commis-sioners passed a resolution against putting the statue of Confederate Gen. Kirby Smith in the Lake County Historical Museum when it is removed from Statutory Hall in the nations Capitol. Commissioners Bob Bone and John Christian asked for the resolution to be placed on the agenda. Tavares has passed a similar resolution. Bone said the resolution wasnt strong enoughŽ but he supported it. Christian said, people should do their homework.Ž Part of the homework, he said, is a historical account of Smith providing his familys servant an education to become a doctor after the war. That servant, as it turns out, may have been his half-brother, Christian said, after reviewing the records. You dont get any kudos for educating your brother. Thats something you should do anyway.Ž Smiths own hometown of St. Augustine doesnt want the statue once it is removed from Statutory Hall.Leesburg Commission votes to oppose statueSee STATUE, A6Several key races will be decided in todays primary electionBy Tom McNifftommcniff@dailycommercial.comLEESBURG … It's a histori-cal fact that voter turnout is generally very low in primary elections, and yet there is often so much at stake in these contests.That's certainly true of Tuesday's primary election in Lake County, where voters get to pick two of the five members of the Lake County School Board and a Lake County commissioner, and during which they will decide whether to hike the local property tax rate to pay for security upgrades in public schools.Here are five interesting races to watch … and five good reasons to vote … on Tuesday. 1. School BoardIncumbent Bill Mathias, the reigning School Board Member of the Year in the state of Florida, takes on political newcomer Michael Sykes, and incumbent Stephanie Luke takes on former Umatilla councilman Peter Tarby.At stake are two seats on a board that controls a $500 million budget and helps determine the quality of an education system that service more than 40,000 students. And because these are nonpartisan races, any registered voter can cast a ballot in these contests. 2. GovernorNo, the governor's race will not be decided on Tues-day, but voters will get to decide which Democrat and which Republican square off in the November general election.The frontrunners in the Republican primary are Ron Desantis, who has drawn President Trump's endorse-ment, and Adam Putnam, the former state commis-sioner of agriculture.The Democrat primary pits Gwen Graham, daughter of former U.S. Sen. Bob Graham, against former Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum and Palm Beach bil-lionaire Jeff Green. 3. Lake County CommissionRepublican incumbent Sean Parks takes on Republican newcomer Tad Schnaufer in a winner-take-all contest, and here's the kicker: Any voter … Republican, Democrat, independent or other … can cast a ballot in this one.By Florida law, if all the candidates for an office are running under the same party affiliation, then the primary becomes open to all voters. Typically, that doesn't happen, however. Often, someone will qualify to run as an independent, even though they have no intention of winning the office, just to make sure members of the other party can't vote. That's not the 5 reasons to vote today Duane Bounds helps set up privacy booths for voters at the First Baptist Church of Altoona. [DAILY COMMERCIAL FILE]See VOTE, A6

John McCain until his burial on Sunday. Trumps proclamation came just hours after the White House flag had been returned to full-staff, drawing complaints from right and left.Trump, who had traded bitter criticism with McCain since before the election, declared his order a mark of respect.Ž At the same time, he said it would be Vice President Mike Pence and other officials who would represent the administration at McCains funeral services.Despite our differences on policy and politics, I respect Senator John McCains service to our country and, in his honor, have signed a proclamation to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff until the day of his interment,Ž Trump said in a statement.The statement came two days after McCain died at 81 from brain cancer „ and after objections at Trumps silence from lawmakers and others, including the Ameri-can Legion, which demanded that he do more to honor the Vietnam War hero and six-term senator. Trump initially tweeted condolences to McCains family, but made no mention then of the Arizona Republican with whom he feuded for years.Even as flags remained at half-staff Monday at the Capitol, the Washington Memorial and elsewhere, the White House flag was raised. That seemed to be the break-ing point for a key Trump constituency, veterans.On the behalf of The American Legions two million wartime veterans, I strongly urge you to make an appropriate presidential proclamation noting Senator McCains death and legacy of service to our nation, and that our nations flag be half-staffed through his internment,Ž said a statement to Trump from Denise Rohan, the organizations national commander.By days end, Trump had done just that, with no imme-diate explanation from the White House. But evidence of Trumps feud with McCain remained. People close to McCain and the White House said the family had requested that Trump stay away from the weeks services and ceremonies, which will cul-minate with McCains burial at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.Trump said Vice President Pence would address a cer-emony at the U.S. Capitol on Friday. Others in the admin-istration „ Chief of Staff john Kelly, Defense Secretary James Mattis and National Security Adviser John Bolton „ will also represent the administration. With the proclamation and statement, Trump was con-forming to standard protocol when a prominent member of government dies.McCain was a frequent critic of Trump on everything from his leadership style to his Russia policy. Trump questioned the decorated Navy pilots Vietnam heroism and chafed at McCains vote to kill the presidents ObamacareŽ repeal.McCain died on Saturday at 81 after a 13-month struggle with brain cancer. Trump tweeted condolences to McCains family but made no reference to the Arizona senator.U.S. Flag Code states that flags be lowered on the day of death and the following day for a Member of Congress.ŽAfter Democratic Ted Ken-nedy of Massachusetts died in 2009, President Barack Obama ordered flags at the White House flown at half-staff for five days.Trump re-lowers ag for McCainThe American ” ag “ les at half-staff at the White House, on Monday afternoon, in Washington.

The White House has demanded that Iran extract itself from Syria as an essential precondition to lifting sanctions that went into effect earlier this month.IN BRIEF LAS VEGASHotel security hasnt earned US backingStadiums, corporate build-ings and other facilities that draw crowds have strength-ened their security since 9/11, and in return, they have earned U.S. protections in the event their efforts fail to prevent a terrorist attack and they are sued.

Brandon Lamar Pinder, 24, of Ocala, was sitting in the front passenger seat of a car that turned the wrong way onto Bay Street, police said. When the officer stopped the car, he could smell marijuana. Because the car was occupied by four people who were acting nervously, he called for backup, according to the arrest affidavit. Police found a handgun with a 50-round drum hidden beneath a T-shirt near the front seat.

The board is scheduled to vote next month on the budget request, which will be considered during the 2019 legislative session, which starts in March.The largest funding request includes $125 million for workforceŽ initiatives aimed at helping students earn degrees in areas related to health care, manufacturing, logistics, aviation, finance and other high-demand professions.Another $87 million will go toward student successŽ programs, including increas-ing the number of academic Colleges to seek funding boost See COLLEGES, A4Visitors take part in a wine tasting event at Maggies Attic in Mount Dora.

If approved, the ordinance, would allow consumption of alcoholic beverages outdoors during certain days and times. Tuesdays vote would be the first step. The ordinance would have to come back for a final vote.Council members considered the matter in June but decided to postpone the dis-cussion until they could get a pulse on the matter from downtown merchants.They wanted some input from merchants. They wanted to hear about their thoughts regarding the Entertainment District,Ž City spokeswoman Lisa McDonald said on Monday.McDonald said a meeting of merchants was held in July.The merchants are pretty much in support of it. Id say it was kind of a 60-40 mix,Ž McDonald said.Additionally, the citys Leisure Service Department conducted an online survey of 112 merchants, and 52 responded.According to a city staff memo, 60.8 percent were extremely interested in an entertainment district, 11.8 percent were very interested, 9.8 percent were somewhat interest, 5.9 percent were not so interested and 11.8 percent were not at all interested.Thememo alsodetailed costsfor additional staff to keep the area free of debris, as well as a police officer at a cost of $62,000 annually (salary and benefits) and $50,000 for equipment the first year, plus $20,385 annually for a part-time parks staff member.Other expenses could include additional trash cans and more frequent street sweeping.Mount Dora to mull entertainment district See DISTRICT, A4By Jim Turner The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis drew the largest amount of public matching funds last week, as the overall total going to statewide candidates before Tues-days primary elections neared $5 million.DeSantis and three other gubernatorial can-didates „ Republican Adam Putnam and Dem-ocrats Andrew Gillum and Gwen Graham„ have combined to receive nearly $3.73 million in public funding since late July.Statewide candidates need to voluntary apply for matching funds, with several declining to do so. Under the program, the state matches con-tributions of $250 or less from individual donors.Overall, the state has handed out $4.84 million so far for the 2018 elections. For the 2014 primary and general elections, Florida sent out $4.3 million to candi-dates using the program. In 2010, 10 candidates received $6.1 million from the program.The program has long faced criticism, including from a couple of candidates in this years elections who call the distributions a waste of taxpayer dollars.On Friday, the Florida Division of Elections sent $144,209 to six of the eight candidates who have qualified for matching funds, though the amounts last week were relatively small compared to earlier checks.DeSantis, a Northeast Florida congressman, received $55,110, which raised his matching-fund total to $975,836.Putnam, the states two-term agriculture commissioner who is going up against DeSan-tis in the Republican primary, didnt receive any money last week. Putnam has drawn about $1.04 million from the program.Graham, a former congresswoman who received a $33,922 check from the state on Friday, has received more than $1.2 million through the program.Gillum, the Tallahassee mayor, got a check for $29,377 on Friday and Public nancing before primaries hits $4.84MSee PRIMARIES, A4A statue of Mary McLeod Bethune is replacing the one of Confederate Gen.

BRIEFSFrom Page A3 the Civil War.People who say slav-ery didnt have anything to do with the war are just as wrong as people who say slavery had everything to do with the war,Ž said historian Shelby Foote, who appeared throughout Ken Burns 1990 Civil War documentary. .He quoted a Confederate soldier in his three-volume Civil WarŽ history who, like many others, did not own slaves. When a Union soldier asked why he was fighting, he said, because you are here.ŽSoutherners believed they were fighting the second Revolutionary War, for states rights and to be free from government interference. Northern soldiers fought to keep the Union together.Of course, it was about slavery as far as plantation owners were concerned. A rich mans war, a poor mans fight,Ž Foote said.Smith, of St. Augustine, was a hero in the Mexican War, a graduate and teacher at West Point, and a U.S. soldier who was willing to die defending a fort against Texas rebels before resigning his commission.He arrived with reinforcements at the first battle of Manassas where he was ordered to Take them to the front. Go where the fire is hottest.ŽA bullet struck Smith in the left breast,Ž wrote William C. Davis in The Battle of Bull Run.ŽHe fell in the most spectacular way, the reins falling from his grasp, he reeled in the saddle, threw out his arms and fell to the ground, seriously but not fatally wounded,Ž a soldier said.He recovered and fought in other battles. After the war, he returned to university classrooms as a professor. It is unknown if he ever owned slaves or supported the practice.Why was he elevated to a place of honor by a vote of Florida legislators in the 1920s?It may have a lot to do with the fact that he was the last Confederate gen-eral to surrender.Gilliam Brockell wrote an article in the Washington Post in August entitled How the Statues of Robert E. Lee and Other Confederates Got into the U.S. Capitol.Ž He said early 20th century Southerners got caught up in patriotism and nostalgia after read-ing a revisionist historyŽ book entitled Lost Cause of the Confederacy. Foote had a different take. ƒSoutherners have a sense of defeat which none of the rest of the country has.Ž Couple that with punishment from the conquering Northerners during Reconstruction and the poverty that came with the fall of the old economic system, and you have a recipe for resentment and boiling anger. Enter Mary McLeod Bethune. Born in 1875, the 15th child of sharecroppers and former slaves, she became an educator and founded Bethune-Cookman College. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, reaching out to blacks during his New DealŽ of the 1930s, appointed her as director of the National Youth Administrations Division of Negro Affairs. Mrs. Bethune, who also founded the National Council of Negro Women in 1935, was an indefatigable lobbyist for African-American causesƒ,Ž wrote T.H. Watkins in The Great Depression.Ž Smith was brave, and so was Bethune. Both made contributions to their state, though Bethunes legacy continues through the college and her tireless work to end discrimination. Civil War history is packed with invaluable lessons, including the fact that war is a horror. More than 600,000 people died, more than in any other U.S. war, and an entire generation grew up seeing men without arms and legs as a matter of course. Eliminating Civil War history also wipes out the sacrifice that Abraham Lincoln spoke so eloquently about in his Gettysburg address. ƒ we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain … that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom … and that gov-ernment of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.Ž People who do not know from where they came also do not know where they are going,Ž Catherine Millard wrote in her book, The Rewriting of Americas History.Ž Historian Stephen Ambrose asked a profes-sor at a 1996 political correctnessŽ conference what she was teaching students about Thomas Jefferson. She said she had eliminated him from her lessons because he was a slaveholder. More than half the large audience applauded,Ž he wrote in his book, To America.Ž Jefferson was a flawed human being, Ambrose noted, very flawed. But he also penned the words, all men are cre-ated equal.Ž Point out the irony, Ambrose argued, but dont eliminate the history. Pulitizer-Prize winning Gilbert King wrote about Lake County Sher-iff Malcolm McCalls role in the sham Groveland Four case in Devil in the Grove,Ž and making a mentally disabled man the fall guy for a crime he did not commit in Beneath A Ruthless Sun,Ž in the 1940s and 50s. When done correctly, history doesnt camou-flage or put on a fake coat of polish. It is flawed, to be sure, since we view it through our 21st century lenses, forgetting that people lived in a different time and culture. It also does not excuse the kind of evil that comes with slavery and racial injustice. It can explain how we got here, however, and shed light on how we can do better. Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it,Ž Winston Churchill, said.

Some larger colleges now have a ratio of 800 students for each counselor, far above the recommended standard of 450-to-1, according to the proposal.Funding would also be used to improve technol-ogy to help guide students in their academic choices, keep them on track and help them graduate on time, according to the proposal.The colleges are asking for a $10 million increase in funding for programs that help students earn industry certificates targeted toward local workforce needs. It would bring funding to a total of $20 million for the certifi-cate program.And the colleges are asking to continue $60 million in performance funding that is distributed to the schools each year based on benchmarks such as graduation and retention rates and salaries earned by graduates.The request totals $292 million for the 2019-20 academic year, with $222 million in new funding.College leaders say the increase is necessary, given the lack of state funding increases or higher tuition in recent years.This year, the colleges are operating with a $2.02 billion budget, including $1.23 billion in state funding and $792 million in tuition, according to the state Department of Education.But that is a decrease compared to the funding peak in 2016-2017, when state funding was $1.24 billion, and tuition generated $812 million.Another way to look at it is per-student funding, which is $6,296 this year, down from $6,391 in 2016-2017, or a drop of $95 per student, according to the DOE data.Ava Parker, president of Palm Beach State College and the head of the systems Council of Presidents, said the budget request is similar to what the colleges asked for in the 2018 legislative session.Our needs continue to be the same, but they have been exacerbated because they have gone unattended for a while,Ž Parker said in an interview with The News Service of Florida.We are doing the best that we can to ensure a quality academic experience ƒ but its very difficult for us to meet the needs of our students and their families and the needs of our communities when we dont have the funding necessary to keep pace,Ž she said.Parker said the funding crunch has forced colleges to put programs on the backburnerŽ or to leave waiting lists for programs unaddressed.At her school, Parker said additional funds would allow her to start a long-anticipated program for physical-therapy stu-dents. We have had to continuously say no to that because we havent had the resources to sup-port it,Ž she said.Another need is addressing a waiting list for students seeking to enroll in nursing programs, which are also a high-demand workforce need, she said.One factor in the col-lege-system budget is the counter-cyclical nature of the enrollment. When times are bad and jobs are scarce, more students enroll in the colleges, seek-ing to improve their job skills in a tight employ-ment market.When the job market improves, fewer students enroll or those who enroll may be part time rather than full time.Floridas colleges hit an enrollment peak of about 880,000 fulland part-time students in 2009 and 2010, when the impact of the last major recession was being felt. The current estimate is about 720,000 students in the system. COLLEGESFrom Page A3 The entertainment district would loosely be bounded by Fifth Avenue on the north, Third Avenue on the south, McDonald Street on the west and Baker Street on the east. It would cross over Baker in oneMcDonald said Monday that the maps could be changed.Jerome Brouhard, the manager of Maggies Attic, a wine shop in downtown Mount Dora, believes merchants mostly support an entertainment district. He said it would help their monthly wine and beer walk and would bolster foot traffic for all of downtown.Its not an idea that is foreign,Ž Brouhard said. Most of the cities around us do it already and with no problems there like the Vil-lages, Eustis and Tavares. I think its important that Mount Dora gets on board with what a lot of cities already have and it kind of legitimizes what people are already doing, going from place to place.ŽWere already doing that during festivals.ŽJoshua Jungferman, general manager of Pisces Rising restaurant, agrees.Visitors would be able to freely flow from business to business while enjoying drinks or the many outdoor events Mount Dora has to offer throughout the year,Ž he said.One prominent business owner in the proposed dis-trict doesnt care for the idea.Jim Gunderson, owner of Lakeside Inn, said he doesnt think its neces-sary for Mount Dora to try to keep pace with Tavares and Eustis, which have created entertainment districts.I certainly havent seen any evidence that Mount Dora is losing restaurant and bar business to either Tavares or Eustis due to our lack of an entertainment district,Ž he said. If I use the Inn as an example, our restaurant and bar busi-ness is up over last year, and the year before that and the year before that.ŽGunderson believes the idea should be put to a public voteIf it is truly a great idea, and if it is truly what the majority of the community would like to see happen in their historic downtown, then Im sure it would pass.Ž DISTRICTFrom Page A3 Alleged shooter was prescribed antipsychotic medicationsBy Michael Biesecker and David McFaddenThe Associated PressBALTIMORE „ The suspect in a deadly shooting at a Florida video game tournament had previously been hospitalized for mental illness, accord-ing to court records in his home state of Mary-land reviewed by The Associated Press.Divorce filings from the parents of 24-year-old David Katz of Baltimore say that as an adolescent he was twice hospitalized in psychiatric facilities and that he was prescribed antipsychotic and antidepressant medications.The records show Katzs parents disagreed on how to care for their troubled son, with his father claiming his estranged wife was exaggerating symptoms of mental illness as part of their long and bitter custody battle. The couple divorced in 2007.Katz opened fire Sunday at a gaming bar inside a collection of restaurants and shops in Jacksonville.

A6 Tuesday, August 28, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comThe selection will spill over into 2020, with both parties competing to hold McCains former seat for a full term and put Arizona „ which Trump won by three percentage points in 2016 „ into their column in the presi-dential race.While McCain battled the brain cancer that was diagnosed last year, Ducey and other Republi-cans have steered clear of any talk about replacing him. Among the choices the governor will now have to weigh is whether to name a caretaker or someone who will be a candidate to keep the seat two years from now.Among the names mentioned to hold the seat temporarily are McCains widow, Cindy McCain, and former Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz.Governor Ducey has an awesome responsibility there,Ž Kyl said Sunday on Fox News when asked what he wants to see happen with the seat. Whoever Ducey names should continue representation for all the people of the United States on the most criti-cal international issues. John had the experience to do that and he had the instincts, in my view, to make the right kinds of decisions, and I hope whoever the governor appoints can work in that vein.ŽCindy McCain had previously given the gov-ernor some indication of interest in holding the seat in a caretaker role had he died before the end of May „ but it isnt clear if thats still the case, said Jennifer Duffy, Senate editor of the inde-pendent Cook Political Report.I dont know how she feels about it now,Ž Duffy said. I dont think we can take her off the list.ŽOther names being cir-culated among Arizona lawmakers are Eileen Klein „ the former presi-dent of the Arizona Board of Regents whom Ducey appointed as interim state treasurer earlier this year „ and Kirk Adams, Duceys chief of staff and a former speaker of the Arizona House, accord-ing to a legislative aide in the state. CHOICEFrom Page A1President Donald Trump talks on the phone with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto in the Oval Of“ ce of the White House on Monday in Washington. Trump is announcing a trade understandingŽ with Mexico that could lead to an overhaul of the North American Free Trade Agreement. [EVAN VUCCI/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] former Canadian minis-ter of justice, defense and foreign affairs who is now a partner at the law firm Baker McKenzie.Critics denounced the prospect of cutting Canada out a North American trade pact, in part because of the risks it could pose for companies involved in international trade. Many manufacturers have built complex but vital supply chains that cross all three NAFTA borders.Trump was quick to proclaim victory, though, pointing to Mondays surge in stock prices, which was fueled in part by the appar-ent breakthrough with Mexico.We just signed a trade agreement with Mexico, and its a terrific agreement for everybody,Ž the president said. Its an agreement that a lot of people said couldnt be done.ŽTrump has frequently condemned the 24-yearold NAFTA trade pact as a job-killing disasterŽ for American workers. NAFTA reduced most trade barriers between the three coun-tries. But the president and other critics say it encour-aged U.S. manufacturers to move south of the border to exploit low-wage Mexican labor.The preliminary deal with Mexico might encourage more manufacturing in the United States. Yet it is far from final. Even after being formally signed, it would have be ratified by lawmakers in each country.The U.S. Congress wouldnt vote on it until next year „ after November midterm elections that could end Republican control of the House of Representatives.There are still a lot of questions left to be answered,Ž MacKay said. He noted, for example, that Trump said nothing Monday about dropping U.S. tariffs on Mexican or Canadian steel „ tariffs that were imposed, in part, to pressure those countries to reach an agreement on NAFTA.But at least initially, it looks like at least a tentative public-relations victory for Trump, the week after his former campaign manager was convicted on financial crimes and his former per-sonal attorney implicated him in hush money payments to two women who say they had affairs with Trump.Before the administration began negotiating a new NAFTA a year ago, it notified Congress that it was beginning talks with Canada and Mexico. DEALFrom Page A1case here. 4. The School Safety TaxThe School District is asking voters to voluntarily raise the school property tax for school safety by .75 mills. A mill is $1 of taxes for every $1,000 in the taxable value of a home. With the $25,000 homestead exemption, someone with a home valued at $100,000 would pay about $56 a year for school security. While they havent calculated how much it will take to protect the schools, School Board members and district administrators say it will be much more than the district can afford currently.In the wake of the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Broward County on Valentines Day, the Florida Legislature mandated better security at schools around Florida but it provided just a fraction of the funding needed to carry out this mandate. Beginning this school year, there are resource officers „ mostly sheriffs deputies „ in every school in Lake County. In addition, the board wants to add security cameras, stronger doors, ballistic film to windows and other features as part of the school hardeningŽ effort. They also want to add mental health counselors to help young people in crisis in hopes of heading off violent situations. 5. Clerk of CourtsNo, the clerk doesn't have the sexiest govern-ment job. He is basically the county's primary record keeper.But this race is interest-ing because we're looking for a successor to long-time Clerk Neil Kelly, who stepped down last month. The governor named his deputy clerk, Gary Cooney, to replace him, but Cooney drew a challenger in fellow Republican Jason Paynter.And like the County Commission contest, this primary is open to all voters. VOTEFrom Page A1Commissioners Jay Hurley and Elise Denni-son voted against sending the resolution to the Historical Society. Dennison did not comment. Hurley said it wasnt that anyone should be saying anything positive about Smith, but a nonbinding resolu-tion would just add to the divisiveness. You open up an issue with us with us set on different sides of the community,Ž he said. Where does it stop?Ž There is a committee set up to examine the issue, he said. A nonbinding resolution from Leesburg is not going to settle it. Christian said County Commissioner Leslie Campione asked him to gather five other Afri-can-Americans to discuss the issue with the Lake Historical Society, but the discussion was canceled by the committee, saying it had to digestŽ a resolution against the statue from the Tavares City Council. Michael Watkins told commissioners, the pur-pose of the statues at the time they were erected was to send a message that some people were not equal to others.Ž Another speaker, who like Watkins is AfricanAmerican, identified himself as a chaplain of the American Legion. The general, he said deserted the U.S. Army and should not be honored.Ž Smith was a hero of the Mexican War, but the St. Augustine native gave up his Army commission to join the rebel army. Leesburgs resolution noted: One of the criteria ƒ was to place the statue in a site where ƒ Smiths contribution had histori-cal significance in relation to the subjectƒ.,Ž the measure says. The resolution goes on to say Lake County wasnt even a political entity until 1887 and Smith had no connection to Lees-burg or Lake County. America has a lot of good history, and some bad history,Ž said Don Lukich, a candidate for the City Commission. But to oppose history is just repulsive,Ž he told commissioners. Bone said his family have been Southerners since the 1700s, but history can be told in dif-ferent ways. He said he has read poems written by families who lost loved ones in the war. Theres more his-tory in those poems than in any statue. There are really heartfelt words spoken there.Ž The statue is now being replaced in the Capitol by one of educator and civil rights pioneer Mary McLeod Bethune. Each state has two statues in the hall. Museum curator Bob Grenier has said he under-stands the sensitivity about displaying Confed-erate statues prominently in public places. People say they should be in in a museum. Well, this is a museum.Ž He argues the nine-foot bronze statue is a work of art and of historical importance. The statue would not be displayed in the lobby of the his-toric courthouse but in an exhibit room that honors veterans. STATUEFrom Page A1 Commissioner Bob Bone, left, and Mayor Pro-Tem John Christian, pictured here at the ground-breaking ceremony for the new community center at Venetian Gardens in Leesburg, offered a resolution opposing moving a statue of a Confederate general to Tavares.

PAGE 9 | Tuesday, August 28, 2018 A9 ANOTHER OPINIONHeed McCains call for compromise ANOTHER OPINION ANOTHER OPINIONJohn McCain was an American original OPINIONSteve Skaggs | Publisher Tom McNiff | Executive Editor Whitney Lehnecker | Digital Editor, Lifestyles Editor Tom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 tom.mcniff@dailycommercial.comA few days before casting the vote that kept Obamacare intact in the face of a GOP attack, Sen. John McCain, the Arizona Republican who died Saturday after a battle with brain cancer, gave a speech that his colleagues should heed if they want to find their way out of the wilderness theyve blundered into. Lets trust each other. Lets return to regular order,Ž McCain said, referring to the process of holding hearings and working in committee to improve legislation before passing it into law. Weve been spinning our wheels on too many important issues because we keep trying to find a way to win without help from across the aisle.Ž McCain was an enormously consequential figure in the Senate. His voting record shows him to be a solidly conservative Republican. But his willingness to cross party lines and bridge differences was as much his signature as his outspokenness and occasional bursts of temper. Many of the tributes to McCain have focused, appropriately so, on his personal qualities „ his patriotism, his willingness to admit error, his personal decency, his readiness to engage with critics and the press. Inevitable contrasts are also being drawn between the senator who wanted to be president and the reality TV star who actually is president. McCain is also being remembered for substantive positions that put him at odds with some in his party, including his support for immigration reform, limits on special-interest money in political campaigns and an end to the use of torture in the interrogation of suspected terrorists. But the image of McCain the maverick cant obscure the fact that he was an advocate and practitioner of the sort of consensus politics that seems to be vanishing in the Senate. After Democrats in the Senate filibustered some of President George W. Bushs judicial nominees in 2005, McCain was the leader of an effort by a bipartisan group of senators known as the Gang of 14 to allow some nominees to receive votes. The deal headed off a threat by Republicans to trigger the nuclear optionŽ and abolish filibusters for judicial nominations. The partisan wrangling over judges eventually picked up steam again, however, leading Senate Democrats to abolish filibusters for all nominees except Supreme Court justices in 2013. Four years later, after refusing to hold even a hearing on Obamas last Supreme Court pick, Senate Republicans killed the filibuster on Supreme Court nominees as well. In 2010, McCain warned Democrats against using the budget reconciliation process to approve elements of the Affordable Care Act by a simple majority vote, predicting that it would fundamentally alter the nature of the Senate. Sure enough, Republicans used reconciliation this term to try to repeal the ACA, and have mulled deploying it for other highly partisan proposals as well. The senators now giving tribute to McCain should revisit the warnings hes given over the years about the consequences of polarization and the recurring cycle of partisan payback. Sadly, theres no indication that theyre willing to take his advice to heart. The Los Angeles TimesIn 2015, Sen. John McCain told an interviewer he had chosen his own epitaph. His gravestone will read: He served his country.Ž That is exactly what the Arizona senator did, faithfully and imperfectly, passionately and stubbornly, lovingly and brashly, all his life. McCain died of brain cancer Saturday at the age of 81. He was a uniquely American character, most notable for his soldiering, Senate service and two unsuccessful runs for the presidency. His career and sensibilities spanned multiple eras and vast societal changes, and evolved with the times. His humor and irascible unpredictability kept McCain careening over a rollercoaster of popularity across the political spectrum, never more so than in the final chapter, his proper and principled opposition to President Donald Trump. After the president held a joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin last month, McCain said: No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant.Ž As a Navy pilot in the Vietnam War, McCain was shot down and captured. He served 5 years in a Hanoi prison, tortured brutally. Offered early release in deference to his father and grandfather, both admirals, McCain refused to leave before men imprisoned longer. That is part of his legend. But so is McCains record at the U.S. Naval Academy. He graduated 894th of 899 students. His behavior as a midshipman, he gleefully admitted, wasnt much better than his grades. McCains mistakes were painful. His vote in the House of Representatives in 1983 against a national holiday recognizing the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. haunted him for 25 years, until he admitted it was a terrible error. He was one of the Keating Five,Ž senators implicated in the savings and loan scandals. The Senate Ethics Committee ruled that while he broke no laws, he showed bad judgment by stepping in with regulators on behalf of campaign contributor Charles Keating, a judgment McCain agreed with. His fight to reform campaign finance laws and stop the kind of bad behavior he had committed showed both growth and a unique humility. In 2000, McCain took aim at the Republican presidential nomination on a bus called the Straight Talk Express,Ž electrifying the nation, and his loss to establishment favorite George W. Bush seemed only to cement popular affection for him. But in 2008, as the GOP nominee, he could not stop the juggernaut of Barack Obamas campaign. His selection of running mate Sarah Palin was a ghastly error, yet McCain never criticized her. In addition, his willingness to stand against his own supporters when they derided Obama, vouching for his opponents quality of character and love of country, was noble. To the end, McCain infuriated both Republicans and Democrats. He rightly killed the repeal of the Affordable Care Act in 2017 mostly because he felt the process lacked proper debate and parliamentary procedure, infuriating the GOP. But he delighted Republicans when he wrongly supported a massive tax overhaul process with similar flaws. John McCain served his country and his ideals as best he could, for as long as he could. He picked his epitaph, and he earned it. From the editorial board at Newsday. John McCain served his country and his ideals as best he could, for as long as he could. He picked his epitaph, and he earned it. Its sad that it has come to this „ basically people are raising (money for) their own health care because the health care system is so broken here.Ž „ Neal Zundell Sad is certainly one word for it. Dismaying is another. Infuriating. Outrageous. As the Chicago Tribunes Savannah Eadens wrote in a recent front-page story, the Zundells of Chicago have raised more than $120,000 through the crowdsourcing website GoFundMe to help cover medical costs for their 7-year-old son, Izzy, who has a progressive central nervous system disorder. And on one hand its heartwarming that friends, colleagues, neighbors, family and strangers have kicked in to help pay for Izzys $1,250a-week physical therapy sessions, the $11,000-a-year Pedialyte formula he needs and other costs of his illness not covered by the familys insurance. Sweet. Touching. Inspiring. But on the other hand, come on. There are a reported 250,000 GoFundMe campaigns per year related to medical costs, the largest category on the site, and an analysis by the personal finance site NerdWallet found that nearly half of all the money raised on the site is related to health care. And this doesnt count campaigns on other crowdsourcing sites such as Plumfund and Help Hope Live, and the old-school, community-based charitable efforts to assist the ailing such as raffles, auctions, races and outings. If you spend any time on social media, youre regularly subjected to touching yet ultimately numbing solicitations related to cancer, strokes, premature births, mental health crises, injuries, heart attacks, rare or chronic debilitating diseases and so on. Here we are, in the richest, most technologically advanced nation in history, and our system for funding health care is so porous that weve turned hundreds of thousands of Americans into beggars rattling their digital tin cups and revealing their most intimate afflictions at their most vulnerable moments to try to avoid deep financial hardship or ruin for the sinŽ of being unlucky. Disgraceful. Scandalous. Embarrassing. In late 2017, a Gallup survey estimated that 12.2 percent of U.S. adults lacked health insurance coverage. Thats down from 18 percent prior to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ObamacareŽ) but still represents close to 30 million people. Analysts expect that number to climb. Despite the progress made with the Affordable Care Act, there are ever-widening gaps in coverage for treatment, prescriptions and related health care costs, even for patients with insurance,Ž said a statement GoFundMe provided to Yahoo Finance for a recent story. However, while GoFundMe can provide timely, critical help to people facing health care crises, we do not aim to be a substitute social safety net.Ž That the company nevertheless has become a substitute social safety net is troubling. Unacceptable. Borderline immoral. The kindness of strangers turns out to be a poor substitute for the universal health care coverage provided by every other highly developed nation. Studies have found that only roughly 1 in 10 of GoFundMes health-related campaigns meets its goal. So add ineffectiveŽ to the list of applicable adjectives. These ubiquitous, often piteous campaigns are a symptom of what ails us, not a cure. Each plea on social media, each importunate email, is a reminder that our profitbased health care system isnt getting the job done. We spend vastly more on health care per capita and as a percentage of GDP than every other developed nation, but because of inequities in the system we rate dismally compared with the rest of the developed world in life expectancy, infant and maternal mortality and deaths from preventable diseases. Yes, the ailing who live in countries with universal health care also seek help through crowdsourcing, usually to cover unconventional or extraordinary therapies and the sorts of costs associated with health emergencies, such as job loss, that insurance is not designed to cover. And although we should be proud that so many of us volunteer to give so much to those who are suffering so greatly, we should also see these sad campaigns as motivating, galvanizing, electrifying. We must do better. Eric Zorn wrote this for the Chicago Tribune.ANOTHER OPINIONMedical GoFundMe campaigns are a symptom of a sick health insurance system

The Hurricanes now have to figure out a way to do so again.With 15 starters back from a year ago, the Hurricanes are again the preseason favorite to win the Atlantic Coast Conferences Coastal Division title „ just as they did in 2017 when they finally went to the league championship game for the first time.It was a long-awaited breakthrough year, and Miami is aiming to keep building off that success.I definitely think teams have learned to respect us,Ž defensive back Jaquan Johnson said at the ACCs preseason media days. I read something, Im not sure what coach said it, but it was something about how Miami, If you get them in a close game, theyre not going to finish. This was like two years ago.

[PAUL RYAN / CORRESPONDENT] By Doug FergusonThe Associated PressPARAMUS, N.J. „ The PGA Tour is putting the final touches on a revamped FedEx Cup structure that would award a cash bonus to the leading player from the regular season, followed by a new scoring format for the Tour Championship to decide the FedEx Cup champion, The Associated Press has learned.Five people aware of the discussions say FedEx Cup points will not be involved in the final playoff event at East Lake. Instead, the No. 1 player would start the Tour Championship at 10-under par, with scores to par staggered depending on the 30 players position in the standings.The winner will be the FedEx Cup champion, and the bonus is expected to be more than the current $10 million prize.That means whoever gets the 30th spot at East Lake would have four rounds to make up as many as 10 shots. The change eliminates the awkward moment „ and divided attention „ of one player winning the Tour Championship and another winning the FedEx Cup, which happened last year for the second time.The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the tour has not publicly announced what they are planning to do, and because there are still loose ends.One item unsolved is when the regular season would end.Since the FedEx Cup began in 2007, the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina, has been the final regular season tournament for players to finish among the top 125 to retain full PGA Tour status and qual-ify for the postseason.What emerged from a Player Advisory Council meeting last week was the possibility of ending the regular season the previous week at the FedEx Invitational, a World Golf Championship in Memphis, Tennessee.

One game.Wildwood Athletic Director Ryan Harrison said McGuire resigned his post on Monday, after meeting with Wildwood administra-tors, less than 72 hours after the Wildcats lost 25-6 to Gainesville P.K. Yonge in the teams regular-season opener. However, McGuire said he agreed to resign rather than be terminated.Offensive coordinator J.B. Bynum has been named interim head coach for the rest of the season.There was a difference in opinion about the direction the program was going,Ž Har-rison said. I met with coach McGuire Monday morning and talked about the way the team has played in the Kickoff Classic against South Sumter and (against P.K. Yonge). After we spoke, he met with school administrators, including (Principal Richard Hampton).I dont know what was said in that meeting, but it was decided that it was best for the football program that coach McGuire step down.Ž McGuire said he, like many in the Wildwood community, was not pleased with Fridays outcome nor with a 43-6 loss to South Sumter in the preseason Kickoff Classic. Still, he had no reason to believe his job was in jeopardy before Mondays meetings.I was pretty shocked,Ž said McGuire. I had previously requested a meeting with the school administration to talk about some other things and this is what happens. I certainly didnt plan to step down, but it was obvious to me that I wasnt going to have the opportunity to continue on as coach.ŽMcGuire was named coach in July after McKinley Rolle stepped down to become linebackers coach at Garden City Community College in Kansas.

Coach Willie Taggart made the announcement on Monday prior to practice."In every scrimmage we've had, he's been really impressive," Taggart said. "And the same thing in prac-tice. And they all have. It's been a good competition."But I think when you look at the overall body of work and when they're in there running the offense, we feel like Deondre gives us the best shot."Francois threw for 3,350 yards, 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 2016 when he was named the Atlantic Coast Conference's rookie of the year. He suffered a season-ending knee injury last year in the Seminoles' opener against Alabama and had surgery three days later to repair the patellar tendon in his left knee.Francois was limited during spring practices but was cleared for full participation when the Seminoles began preseason practices. Taggart said he informed all three quarterbacks about the decision on Sunday."When he's in there running the offense, it's a lot more efficient, a lot less mistakes," Taggart said. "That's important when playing the position."Blackman had stepped in to start after Francois' sur-gery and the competition has been viewed as one of the most important ones of the preseason as well as a major decision for Taggart, who prepares for his first season as Florida State's coach.Francois was investigated for a pair of off-field incidents and took part in a diversion program for a mis-demeanor marijuana charge. He moved back on campus and has strengthened his relationship with teammates.Taggart said "he's been doing everything we've asked him to do and more."As a true freshman, Blackman threw for 2,230 yards, 19 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Hockman took a redshirt in 2017, his first year on campus, and often ran the Seminoles' scout team.Taggart thinks Blackman and Hockman will be ready if called upon."I think with a guy like James, and just going through what he went through last year, he understands he's got to be ready and not sit around or pout," Taggart said. "Just like that, he could be in the game. And the same thing with Bailey. He's the same way: he's going to work and compete and make sure he's ready to go as well."Francois wasn't made available to the media on Monday but has spoken a few times during the preseason. He said the competition has made each quarterback better."I'm just doing my best every day to be the best quar-terback I can be for this team," Francois said recently. "We all compete against each other every day, and we all love each other.

[MEL EVANS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] in the FedEx Cup typically take a week off before the playoffs instead of playing the Wyndham Championship.But by ending the season in Greensboro „ which one person said is the more likely scenario „ there could be a case where a player adds the Wyndham Championship if he has a chance to win the regular season.Two people said the bonus for the regular season would be awarded only to the top three players, with $3 million going to the leading player.The larger overhaul involves the conclusion to the FedEx Cup.Starting next year, the number of playoff events will be reduced from four to three. The Northern Trust will rotate each year between Liberty National in Jersey City and the TPC Boston, followed by the BMW Championship and then the Tour Championship. The size of the field is reduced each week until 30 reach East Lake in Atlanta.For the last 10 seasons, points were reset going into the final event so that all 30 players had a mathematical chance to win the FedEx Cup, and the leading five had a clear shot at the title because they only had to win the Tour Championship.The problem was splitting attention on two trophies. A year ago, Xander Schauffele won the Tour Championship by one shot over Justin Thomas, who won the FedEx Cup. Thomas said later it was a weirdŽ moment to lose the tournament and win the $10 million prize.Wasnt my week this week in terms of winning the golf tournament, but it definitely came with a nice consolation prize,Ž Thomas said that day because his mind for the final round was solely on winning the Tour Championship.The tour hopes the new format, where some players essentially have a head start before a shot is hit „ will keep the focus squarely on the FedEx Cup. The winner still gets credit for a victory in the Tour Championship.It was not clear how the scores would be staggered for the top 30 beyond the leader starting out at 10 under. The better a player finishes in the regular season, the closer he starts to the lead going into the Tour Championship.And during four days at East Lake, it will do away with TV projections of points and other distractions.Two years ago, for example, Dustin Johnson would have won the FedEx Cup if either Ryan Moore or Kevin Chappell had won a three-man playoff with Rory McIlroy, who wound up winning both.The PGA Tour last year announced a 10-year exten-sion for the title sponsorship of the FedEx Cup, an important deal because it gave the tours postseason continuity for another decade. PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan said last year he expects the bonus pool „ previously $35 million with $10 million for the winner „ to increase. FEDEXFrom Page B1the center of whats usually a raucous sideline celebration.The turnover chain itself is definitely like the 12th man,Ž Johnson said. As soon as it comes out, as soon as we get the turnover, it starts. You start to hear all the yelling and the shouting, but once the turnover chain goes on our neck, its like a whole nother notch.ŽSome of what to know about Miamis 2018 season: THE SCHEDULEThis could be a bit thorny. Opening against LSU is a strong test. A road game at Toledo on Sept. 15 will be against a Rockets team that went into Miami and led the Hurricanes at halftime last year. And then the Miami-FIU rivalry resumes on Sept. 22 after an 11-year hiatus caused in large part by the infamous brawl between the teams in 2006. As far as key ACC games, the Hurricanes play host to Florida State but will travel to Virginia Tech. RECEIVERS NEEDEDThe top two passcatchers from last season are gone. Braxton Berrios and Christo-pher Herndon IV combined for 95 catches last season; none of the returning Hurricanes made more than 24. Miami desperately wants Ahmmon Richards to return to his freshman form „ inju-ries limited him to eight games last season. Jeff Thomas will be one of the fastest wideouts in the ACC, and could slide into the Berrios role. TOP LINEBACKERSMiamis starting linebacker unit could be among the nations best. Shaquille Quar-terman, Michael Pinckney and Zach McCloud are all juniors and the NFL is probably going to come calling for at least two of them after the season. They combined for 199 tackles last season, including 22 for losses. And defensive lineman Joe Jackson is inexplicably underrated; hell see double-teams all season and probably wont be fazed. DEPTH QUESTIONSThe Hurricanes seemed to wear down toward the end of last season. Running back Travis Homer, the teams leader in all-purpose yards a year ago, averaged 106.6 yards in the seasons first 10 games, all wins „ and 45.7 yards in the seasons final three games, all losses. If Miami is going be spry enough to challenge for the ACC title in December, the fuel tanks will have to have more left than they did down the stretch a year ago. KICK GAMERed zone is an area where Miami needs to improve. The Hurricanes made 43 trips inside the opponent 20 last season, but converted them into only 25 touchdowns. They were great at chip-shot field goals, but a brutal 3 for 8 on kicks of 40 or more yards. Meanwhile, opponents didnt miss a single kick against Miami last season „ 26 for 26 on extra points and 21 for 21 on field goals. SUCCESSFrom Page B1 per carry „ and scored five touchdowns.He also caught one pass on a two-point conversion, meaning Joiner accounted for 32 of South Lakes 50 points.Quarterback Baylee Heuser completed 12 of 18 passes for 221 yards and receiver Torrance Stover had three catches for 101 yards. Lake Minneolas o enseThe Hawks ran for 368 yards against Eustis.Running backs Chase Meinhart and Xavier McClendon had 118 yards and 116 yards, respectively, to pace Lake Minneola. Duke Walker had 57 yards on just six carries. Receiver Trent Logan had one catch, but it was a big one … for 48 yards. Quarter-back Devon Cole was only 2 of 7 passing for 49 yardsLake Minneola finished with 417 yards of total offense. The Villages total e ortThe Buffalo piled up 351 yards rushing and 423 yards of total offense against Tavares.Corey Goldwire led Buffalo with 111 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Bryce Mellado added 109 yards with one scoring run.Mac Harris saw action on both sides of the ball for The Villages. He passed for 49 yards and ran for 67 as quar-terback, including a 28-yard touchdown dash, and forced a fumble on defense that led to a touchdown.Ezekial Williamsonbey had the run of the night for the Buffalo, a 52-yarder that set up Harris scoring romp. It was one of 11 rush-ing attempts by The Villages that went for at least 11 yards.The Buffalo were anything but one dimensional in the win, holding Tavares to less to 100 yards of total offense and seven first downs. Raider Football returns to South SumterLooking to get out of the gates quickly following an 0-9 record in 2017 „ the first winless campaign in school history „ the Raid-ers ground out 272 yards on the ground in a dominant win against Leesburg.South Sumter scored on the games first play when Snoop Jackson returned the opening kickoff 86 yards. K.J. Edwards ran for 107 yards and a touchdown on just 10 carries. The quarterback combination of Garhett Miller and Toby Van Hooijdonk completed 10 of 13 passes for 168 yards and three touchdowns.Defensively, the Raiders held Leesburg to 223 yards and forced five turnovers „ one interception and four fumbles. THE NOT-SO-GOODTavares fumbled three times against The Villages and lost each one. The Bull-dogs managed only seven first downs and had only 98 yards of total offense.Wildwood struggled on both sides of the ball in a 25-6 loss at Gainesville P.K. Yonge. The Wildcats surren-dered 432 yards of offense to the Blue Wave. Still, the Wildcats trailed only 19-6 after Kanyon Walker scored on a 25-yard run in the third quarter, but then they had to wait out a lengthy delay when a birds nest atop one of the light towers caught fire.After play resumed, P.K. Yonge scored to seal the win.Umatilla struggled mightily in its 51-0 loss to Clearwater Calvary Christian. The Bulldogs trailed 38-0 at halftime and a run-ning clock was used in the second half.Bulldogs coach Ryan Mills was incensed when he learned Calvary Christian, apparently, had acquired a number of transfers. That, he felt, stacked the deck against his young team. OTHER STANDOUTSMount Dora Christian running back Tyler Allen ran for 166 yards on 28 carries and scored two touchdowns. The Bulldogs ran for 250 yards against Seffner Christian.Eustis Rashon Scott rushed for 101 yards and teammate J.T. Cannon caught two passes for 80 yards against Lake Minneola.Mount Dora running back Isayah Hatter ran for 115 yards and two touchdowns, and Austin Berg had six catches for 115 yards and two touchdowns against East Ridge. The Hurricanes fin-ished with 383 yards of total offense. Defensively, Mount Dora limited East Ridge to 6 of 16 passing and had three interceptions.East Ridge kicker Max Morningstar had six touch-backs against Mount Dora. Morningstar also had three punts for a 44-yard average.

He said McGuires work ethic was not a factor in the decision.Theres no question coach McGuire was com-mitted to Wildwood football while he was here,Ž said Harrison. He developed a relationship with his players and he coached hard. It just wasnt working out the way we expected and we were concerned about taking steps back after all the progress we made last year.ŽMcGuire said he didnt get a chance to speak with his players after the deci-sion was made.

The reigning French Open champion has now lost her first match at 12 of 34 career major appearances, a stunningly high rate for such an accomplished player.Its always about the nerves,Ž said Halep, who was beaten in the first round in New York by five-time major champion Maria Sharapova in 2017. Even when you are there in the top, you feel the same nerves. You are human.ŽShe also offered up an explanation tied to this site.Maybe the noise in the crowd. The city is busy. So everything together,Ž said Halep, who was coming off consecutive runs to the final at hard-court tuneup tournaments at Cincinnati and Montreal. Im a quiet person, so maybe I like the smaller places.ŽIt was the first match at the rebuilt Louis Armstrong Sta-dium, which now has about 14,000 seats and a retract-able roof.In other womens play, Venus Williams moved to the second round by beating Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-3, 5-7, 6-3 in a matchup of past U.S. Open champions.Williams, the No. 16 seed and a semifinalist last year at Flushing Meadows, could play younger sister Serena in the third round. That would be their earliest Grand Slam matchup in 20 years.Serena Williams, the No. 17 seed, beat Magda Linette 6-4, 6-0 in the opening match of the night session at Arthur Ashe Stadium.Defending champion Sloane Stephens advanced to the second round, with the No. 3 seed defeating Evgeniya Rodina 6-1, 7-5.In the mens draw, Andy Murray was a winner in his return to Grand Slam tennis, beating James Duckworth 6-7 (5), 6-3, 7-5, 6-3 in the first round.The 2012 U.S. Open cham-pion from Britain has sat out much of the last year because of hip surgery. He hadnt appeared in a major since Wimbledon in 2017.

THIS DATE IN BASEBALLAUG. 28 1926: Emil Levsen of the Cleveland Indians pitched two complete-game victories over the Boston Red Sox, 6-1 and 5-1. He did not strike out a batter in either game. The Indians used the identical lineup in both games. 1951: The Pittsburgh Pirates defeated the New York Giants 2-0, snapping the Giants 16-game winning streak. The streak enabled the Giants to cut the Dodgers 13-game lead to six. 1977: In a 6-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles, Nolan Ryan of the California Angles struck out 11 batters to pass the 300-strikeout plateau for the “ fth time in his career. 1990: Ryne Sandberg became the “ rst second baseman in history to have consecutive 30-homer seasons, leading the Cubs to a 5-2 victory over the Houston Astros. 1992: The Milwaukee Brewers set an American League record with 31 hits and 26 singles in a 22-2 rout of the Toronto Blue Jays. 2014: San Franciscos Yusmeiro Petit set a major league record when he retired his 46th batter in a row, and the Giants beat Colorado 3-1. Petit got the “ rst eight Colorado hitters, establishing the mark by striking out Charlie Culberson. That broke Mark Buehrles record of 45 straight with the Chicago White Sox in 2009.

DEAR ABBY: I have reached a crossroads with my career. I used to love my job. I play an important role at my company, and I'm good at what I do. Long term, it provides job security. However, the pay is subpar, and my recent request for a raise was denied. I haven't received a raise in several years. I couldn't get a straight answer about the denial. I was told it wasn't my work performance. I have started looking elsewhere, and I have several interviews scheduled. All of them will give me a $15,000-per-year salary increase over what I currently make for doing what I do. I wasn't asking that much for a raise, not even close. But what makes this difcult is my co-workers. They are devastated at the thought of me leaving. One of them, someone I'm fairly close to, was so angry he went to our boss himself without my knowledge. I don't know what he said, but he got me a raise, albeit a very small one. However, my heart is set on leaving. While I appreciate his going out on a limb for me, I now feel "obligated" to stay. Abby, I'm having a hard time with this. Can you help? -MOVING ON IN THE EAST DEAR MOVING ON: Have a private conversation with the friend who went to bat for you. Tell him you appreciate what he did, but when your boss refused the raise you asked for -after several years of no increase at all -you realized you were no longer valued by the company. Explain that when you went job-hunting you were offered far more than you have been earning, and this will be a step up for you. It doesn't have to mean the end of your relationship with him or the others who care about you. It might stimulate him to go job-hunting, too.DEAR ABBY: Years ago I was sexually assaulted by a friend of a friend. I'll call the man Pete and the friend Katie. I immediately told Katie about it, and we didn't hang out with Pete much after that. Life went on, and I forgot about it. I recently learned that Katie is engaged to Pete now. They are living in another state, and she asked for my address so she can send me an invitation to their wedding. I'm not planning on attending, but how should I tell her I'm not coming? We haven't been close in years, but she was a bridesmaid in my wedding. Should I just send the RSVP card back with a "no," or should I let her know upfront? -CAUGHT OFF GUARD IN VIRGINIA DEAR CAUGHT: I assume that after Katie marries the "friend" who sexually assaulted you, your relationship will be over. While you may have repressed the memory until now, I nd it hard to believe that all three of you had an attack of amnesia. There's no need to contact her at this point to remind her of what her ance is capable of. Just say no. If she contacts you to ask why, explain it to her then. 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 HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR TUESDAY, AUG. 28, 2018:This year you might note that some of your friends are looking at you twice. You are capable of coming up with two opposing ideas and solutions at once. This dichotomy directly reects the wholeness of your thinking and your lack of bias. If you are single, you draw many wannabe suitors toward you. You might enjoy dating this year, at least through early summer. If you are attached, dont play devils advocate with your sweetie, as it isnt likely to work out in your favor. Schedule some more one-on-one time as a couple. PISCES envies your ability to relate.ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) The constriction you felt in the morning could vanish by the afternoon. At that point, you wont care less about what was going on in the morning. Dont be too cavalier, or it could backre. If you seem too chipper, others could get jealous. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Focus on what is significant to you in the morning; you will want the rest of the day for research and reection. A close loved one might not be as supportive as you would like him or her to be. Remember that we all come from different experiences. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) You could be wondering what is going on. First, you run into a demanding boss or key person in your life. Your instincts tell you to try logic, but that is not likely to work right now. In fact, for some people, frustration and anger could be building. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Follow your instincts in the morning. In the afternoon, youll have to deal with someones irritable mood. Tension could be so high that an argument breaks out between you. Try not to hit this person below the belt with a sharp comment. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) You could nd that a discussion propels you into never-never land. What you visualize as a potential possibility might be impossible for others to wrap their minds around. You might want to follow through on your idea and test it out. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Others will seek you out early on. You might feel as if you are dealing with the impossible. By noon, if not earlier, youll decide to deal with each individual directly. Others appreciate what you are doing and let you know. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Be more supportive of yourself. Understand what you need to do in order to nish a project. You might not have as much control over your life in the afternoon, when others seek you out. Be selective in your choices. You have tasks to complete! SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You could have a problem with a boss or someone who has a big impact on your life. Stay upbeat, and try to understand the core issue. Your positive attitude denes the results. Dont make problems where there arent any. Alls well that ends well. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) You are full of get-up-and-go. Youll handle a personal matter in the morning. Clear out as much as you can, yet be OK with needing to continue the resolution later. Note the creative surge you experience in the afternoon. Use it to your advantage. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Stay centered, knowing full well what is too much to take on. You gain success through perseverance; forget being a superhero. Focus your energy on resolving an important domestic issue later in the day. Youll be glad that you did. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Your grumbling over a monetary issue could point to a constructive outcome. Too much generosity will not serve you well. Be sensitive to your budget. How you see an impending interaction could dene the results. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Clear out a hassle quickly in the morning. If you can identify with the other party involved, the solution will appear easily and let you see the matter in a new light. Go buy a token of appreciation that is long overdue. Friend goes to bat with boss and wins co-worker a raise | Tuesday, August 28, 2018 B5 TODAY IS TUESDAY, AUG. 28, the 240th day of 2018. There are 125 days left in the year. TODAY'S HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY: On August 28, 1963, more than 200,000 people listened as the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. ON THIS DATE: In 1609, English sea explorer Henry Hudson and his ship, the Half Moon, reached present-day Delaware Bay. In 1862 the Second Battle of Bull Run (also known as Second Manassas) began in Prince William County, Virginia, during the Civil War; the result was a Confederate victory. In 1941, Japan's ambassador to the U.S., Kichisaburo Nomura, presented a note to President Franklin D. Roosevelt from Japan's prime minister, Prince Fumimaro Konoye, expressing a desire for improved relations. In 1968, police and anti-war demonstrators clashed in the streets of Chicago as the Democratic National Convention nominated Hubert H. Humphrey for president. In 1972 Mark Spitz of the United States won the rst two of his seven gold medals at the Munich Olympics, nishing rst in the 200-meter buttery and anchoring the 400-meter freestyle relay. The Soviet women gymnasts won the team all-around. In 1990, an F5 tornado struck the Chicago area, killing 29 people.
