NATURE WALK: Join birding expert Bob Wexler for a morning bird hike and nature walk from 8 to 9 a.m. Saturday at Trout Lake Nature Center in Eustis.By Jim Saunders and Dara KamNews Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ Siding with state regulators, an appeals court Thursday ruled that controversial electronic games played in bars and other establishments are illegal slot machines.A three-judge panel of the 1st District Court of Appeal upheld a circuit judges decision that what are known as pre-revealŽ games violate laws preventing slot machines in most of Florida. The panels 10-page ruling found, in part, that the games meet the definition of slot machines because they include an ele-ment of chance.The ruling backed the Flor-ida Department of Business and Professional Regulations Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco, which prompted the long-running dispute by ordering two businesses to remove the machines. That move drew legal challenges from Blue Sky Games, which developed the games, and Jacksonville-based Gator Coin, which leased the games to businesses.Supporters of the games, which also are known as Ver-sion 67, have contended that the machines are legal because they include a previewŽ fea-ture that advises players of the outcome of the games.But regulators and other critics have argued the preview feature doesnt matter because the random number genera-torŽ used to create the games equates to the definition of slot machines, which are games of chance,Ž under state law.Court says pre-reveal games are illegal slot machines Lake schools pumping tutors into schools and seeing resultsBy Payne Raypray@dailycommercial.comLEESBURG „ With large student-to-teacher ratios, teachers often find themselves offering one-size-fits-all les-sons and agonizing as they watch lower-performing stu-dents fall further and further behind their classmates.That's why the Lake County School District and community leaders are pumping tutors into area schools in an effort to give more individual instruction to struggling students.Lake Countys own tutoring program offers beforeand after-school tutoring to stu-dents in Title I and private schools, homeless students, and migrant students.Their efforts are augmented by Tutors for Kids, a nonprofit organization of volunteer tutors that matches tutors with teachers, who in turn match the tutors to students.Tutors for Kids offers in-school tutoring, which allows a student the time to receive thorough, tailored explanations of material throughout the school day.School Tutor coordinator Pat Moore said teachers try to sync the efforts of tutors to the day's lessons.Data provided by the Lake County School District showed that in all nearly all instances, the 1,000 stu-dents in district-administered tutoring programs made vast improvements in end-of-year tests.A little extra helpKyden Jackson, 8, gets help pronoucing words from Tutor For Kids coordinator Pat Moore at Leesburg Elementary on Thursday.

Schools also bear the burden of showing why their consid-eration of race is appropriate.In Harvards case, Justice Department officials said, the university hasnt explained how it uses race in admissions and has not adopted meaningful criteria to limit the use of race.No American should be denied admission to school because of their race,Ž Attor-ney General Jeff Sessions said.Sessions said Harvards use of a personal rating,Ž which includes highly sub-jective factors such as being a good personŽ or likability,Ž may be biased against Asian-Americans. Sessions said the school admits that it scores Asian-American applicants lower on personal rating than other students. Sessions also argued that Harvard admissions officers monitor and manipulate the racial makeup of incoming classes.Harvard said it was disap-pointed the department was recycling the same mislead-ing and hollow arguments that prove nothing more than the emptiness of the case against Harvard.ŽHarvard does not dis-criminate against applicants from any group, and will con-tinue to vigorously defend the legal right of every college and university to consider race as one factor among many in college admissions, which the Supreme Court has consistently upheld for more than 40 years,Ž the university said in a statement.Colleges and universities must have the freedom and flexibility to create the diverse communities that are vital to the learning experi-ence of every student.ŽEdward Blum, president of the group that sued Harvard, hailed the administrations action. We look forward to having the gravely trou-bling evidence that Harvard continues to keep redacted disclosed to the American public in the near future,Ž he said.The departments court filing opposes Harvards request to dismiss the suit before trial.Harvards failure to provide meaningful criteria to cabin its voluntary use of race, its use of a personal rating that significantly harms AsianAmerican applicants chances of admission and may be infected with racial bias, and the substantial evidence that Harvard is engaging in outright racial balancing each warrant denialŽ of Harvards request, the department said.The department is separately investigating Harvards admissions policies.There was no immediate comment on the move from the Education Department.The filing follows a July decision by the those departments to abandon Obama-era guidelines that instructed universi-ties to consider race in their admissions process to make the student body more diverse. Democrats said the Trump administration was taking away protections for minorities.The Center for Equal Opportunity, a conservative think tank, cited Harvards own analysis of its admissions data and said it demonstrates that being African American, Native American, or Hispanic was a plus factor in the competi-tion for admission, but being Asian American proved to be a minus.ŽHarvard accused of outright racial balancingA tour group walks through the campus of Harvard University on Aug. 30, 2012, in Cambridge, Mass.

He has been a consequential insider on Trumps legal team and a key figure in the administra-tions handling of the federal investigation into Russian election interference and possible Trump campaign collusion. I am very excited about the person who will be taking the place of Don McGahn as White House Councel!Ž Trump tweeted Thursday. HARRISBURG, PA.Bishop backs victim fund over abuse lawsuits in Pa. Roman Catholic officials in Pennsylvania began lining up publicly with a key state legislative ally Thursday in backing the creation of a victims compensation fund as an alternative to allowing victims in decades-old child sexual abuse cases to sue in court.Erie Bishop Lawrence Persico said he would collaborate in the creation of a compensation fund that is administered by a neutral third party, while the Philadelphia Archdiocese and the Harrisburg Diocese suggested they are open to the idea.Allowing lawsuits to be heard in courts, however, would force bigger payouts by the church and force the churches to disclose more, say victim advocates.SEABROOK, N.H.Driver in fatal crash accused of stalking victims wifeSometimes Catrina Costello would allegedly yell obscenities and stare at Stephen VanDalinda and his wife, Erin.

It came to head Wednesday night when Costello allegedly ran the couple down as they walked their dog on a quiet, two-lane street near their house.

[NATACHA PISARENKO/AP] IN BRIEF By Darlene SupervilleThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump informed Congress on Thursday that he is canceling pay raises due in January for most civilian federal employees, citing budget constraints. But the workers still could see a slightly smaller boost in their pay under a proposal lawmakers are considering.Trump said he was axing a 2.1 percent across-the-board raise for most workers as well as locality pay increases aver-aging 25.7 percent and costing $25 billion.We must maintain efforts to put our Nation on a fiscally sustainable course, and Federal agency budgets cannot sustain such increases,Ž said Trump. The president last year signed a package of tax cuts that is forecast to expand the deficit by about $1.5 trillion over 10 years.Trump cited the signifi-cantŽ cost of employing federal workers as justification for denying the pay increases, and called for federal worker pay to be based on performance and structured toward recruiting, retaining and rewarding high-performing Federal employees and those with critical skill sets.ŽHis announcement came as the country heads into the Labor Day holiday weekend.The Democratic Party immediately criticized the announcement, citing the tax cuts Trump signed into law last December. The law provided steep tax cuts for corporations and the wealthiest Americans, and more modest reductions for middleand low-income individuals and families.Trump has delivered yet another slap in the face to American workers,Ž said Dem-ocratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez.Under the law, the 2.1 percent raise takes effect automatically unless the president and Con-gress act to change it. Congress is currently debating a proposal for a slightly lower, 1.9 per-cent across-the-board raise to be included in a government funding bill that would require Trumps signature to keep most government functions operat-ing past September.Trump cancels federal workers 2019 pay raise

McHolder III, 36, of Mount Dora, was acting nervous when pulled over for not completely stopping at a stop sign at Grandview Street and Pine Avenue. The officer also reportedly smelled marijuana.At this point I noticed that the driver was concealing a few small plastic baggies in his right hand,Ž the officer said in the arrest affidavit. The driver then placed his left hand/arm up near the left side of his face, attempting to block my view.ŽHe said the man then tried to hide the baggies near the console.The officer told him to stop, and to turn off the car and step out. When McHolder refused, the officer tried to open the door, but it was locked. McHolder climbed out of the passenger side window and took off running, throw-ing the baggies as he went along. The officer fired his Taser. One probe went into the ground, but the other hit McHolder in the back near his backside.McHolder was charged with possession of metham-phetamine, heroin, bath salts, less than 20 grams of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and resisting arrest without arrest.LAKE WALESIrma, disease lower value of Florida citrus cropLosses from Hurricane Irma last year sent the value of the 2017-18 Florida citrus crop plummeting 41 percent.The Lakeland Ledger reports that's a preliminary estimate of last season's crop value released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.The USDA set the total 2017-18 Florida citrus crop value at nearly $551.2 million, down from a revised estimate of $927 million for the state's 2016-17 citrus crop. A year ago, the agency estimated the 2016-17 crop at $780.7 million.Florida citrus acreage has declined continuously since 2000, at first under pressure from real estate developers buying groves for commercial development. Since 2005, the pressure has come from the fatal bacterial disease citrus greening.Florida citrus production has dropped more than 70 percent since greening's arrival.EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE4 dead after civilian plane crashes on Air Force baseAuthorities say four people were killed when a small civilian plane crashed on a U.S. Air Force base in Florida.Military officials told news outlets that the Beechcraft B60 aircraft crashed Thurs-day morning in a remote area of Eglin Air Force Base in the Panhandle.Base spokeswoman Jasmine Porterfield says the crash occurred in a densely wooded area, several miles from the base's main runway.The Federal Aviation Administration says the plane crashed while approaching Destin Executive Airport, which is located across a bay from the base. Flight records say the plane departed from the Toledo Express Airport in Ohio.Officials haven't identi-fied the victims. The plane is registered to Henry Leasing Company in Ottawa Lake, Michigan. Stridently liberal candidate is something new for DemocratsBy Zac AndersonGatehouse MediaThroughout the Democratic primary for governor, Andrew Gillum stood out for being willing to go one step further to the left than the four other candidates on a number of high-profile issues.In December, Gillum released a video declaring Donald Trump should be impeached, now.ŽIn January, Gillum tweeted that he wants to legalize marijuana and also proposed increasing the state's corpo-rate tax rate from 5.5 percent to 7.75 percent to generate an additional $1 billion for public education.In July, Gillum released a statement calling for abolishmentŽ of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.Now, Gillum leads the charge to November for Florida Democrats as the partys nominee for gov-ernor, raising big questions about whether voters in a purple state will embrace such a liberal candidate. While Republicans also have nominated an ideologue for governor in conservative congressman Ron DeSantis, Gillum's nomination is more sur-prising and his electability more in question.Gov. Rick Scott won his first race in 2010 despite going hard right in the GOP primary. But Demo-crats have never nominated someone as stridently lib-eral as Gillum to carry their banner in the governors race, said University of South Florida political sci-ence professor emeritus Susan MacManus.It represents a generational change that weve been seeing coming along in Florida for a long time,Ž MacManus said. This younger generation wants change; theyre more liberal.Ž Energizing the baseWhile some of Gillums more provocative positions may be supported by the par-tys base, especially younger and minority voters, they could turn off independents and even some moderate and conservative Democrats. Abolishing ICE, for exam-ple, is a fringe position „ even within the Democratic Party „ and Democratic candidates in swing states have been hesitant to call for Trumps impeachment. Legalizing marijuana is becoming more popular, but many Democratic candidates have been cautious on the issue, instead calling for decriminalization.Can Gillum win in Florida?Andrew Gillum and his wife, R.

[AP PHOTO/PHELAN M. EBENHACK] By Frank Stanfieldfrankstanfield@dailycommercial.comLEESBURG … Police who discovered several people sleeping in a gazebo near the MoteMorris house arrested one man and charged him with violating a trespass warning. Baxter M. Rishell, 57, of Leesburg was also wanted on warrants, but the arrest report did not say what those charges are. Rishell has served time in state prison for several crimes, including possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, aggravated assault, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and driving with a suspended license. The historic home was severely damaged by fire in February. The cause was never determined, but one witness said he saw people in the kitchen hours before the blaze. Mayor Dan Robuck noted after the fire that police had frequently chased homeless people away from the building. Six weeks before the fire, police arrested one vagrant and charged him with trying to set fire to the gazebo. Since the fire, consultants have fenced off the home. Now, the city is meeting with its insurance company to find out just how much coverage it had on the structure. The damage estimate is $1.1 million.While it isnt clear whether vagrants cause the Mote-Morris fire, city leaders and police have become increasingly concerned about homeless hanging around the downtown area. As business owners and citizens called for action in recent months, police stepped up enforcement in the area and the City Commission passed ordinances aimed at curbing aggressive panhandling.Vagrant with violent history arrested in Leesburg Authorities say man tried to pay someone to give ex-girlfriend stitchesBy Frank Stanfield frankstanfield@dailycommercial.comTHE VILLAGES „ Author-ities say an elderly man who defaced his ex-girlfriend's house then attacked her when she caught him in the act in early August has been arrested again, this time for trying to hire someone to hurt her and vandalize her home.Derek Britton, 81, of Carbie Drive was arrestedWednes-dayand charged with conspiring to commit aggra-vated stalking and violating an injunction for protection, second offense.The arrest came when a tipster called the Lake County Sheriffs Office.Britton was reportedly trying to bail a friend of the tipsters out of jail, then pay the man to vandalize the wom-an's home with paint, plant narcotics inside the house and steal money and injure the respondent to the point where the respondent will require stitches,Ž according to an arrest affidavit. The tipster said Britton provided the name of the his ex-girlfriend's workplace, an accurate description of her vehicle and the address of her home.He was arrested when he showed up … with $500 and a checkbook in his pocket … to meet with the man, according to the arrest report.Britton was first arrested on Aug. 7 when he violated a court order to stay away from her.In that incident, the woman said she was inbed late that night when her security system notified her someone was outside her home. She checked the video footage on her tablet and saw Britton outside her front window. When she went outside, he was gone. A little while later, the security system alerted her again, but this time she stepped outside to find Brit-ton wearing a black ski mask, standing on a step stool and spray painting her house.Report: Elderly stalker strikes againBy Roxanne Brownroxanne.brown@dailycommercial.comMOUNT DORA „ Look-ing to solve the citys parking woes in the downtown area, City Council members this week approved a loan of up to $4 million to address the issue.Estimating the city needs about 400 more spaces in the downtown district, the council recently approved $800,000 for the purchase of three con tiguous parcels of land in a residential area of the historic district that could be used for parking.The loan the council approved this week would be used to pay for that land along with more land and the design, permitting and con-struction of public parking lots.The loan is with Centerstate LLC at a 3.58 percent fixed interest rate.City Manager Robin Hayes told council members at a meeting Tuesday that members of staff came to the conclusion that for both aesthetic and financial reasons, surface parking lots are being sought over any kind of large parking garages.At one time we were look-ing at a parking garage, but we changed that during the year last year and then we went to surface parking,Ž Hayes said. There was more of a demand we felt like from the environment perspective, as well as the downtown and the quaint, charming look we wanted to keep our downtown looking Mount Dora OKs loan to add parking downtownSee STALKER, A4 See GILLUM, A4 See LOAN, A4 See BRIEFS, A4Britton

And while there are 350 more online students at UF, there are 65 fewer students on the main campus.The top three college increases were:€ Liberal Arts & Sci-ences (13,615, up 339) € Agricultural and Life Sciences (6,095, up 261)€ Public Health and Health Professions (2,514, up 255).The top three college decreases were:€ Engineering (9,595, down 270)€ Business (6,552, down 221)€ High school/dual enrollment (427, down 116).UF has 939 more undergraduate students than a year ago, including 592 more freshmen. But there also are 511 fewer graduate students and 188 fewer professional students.The drop in graduate students „ from 11,895 to 11,384 „ amounts to a 4.3 percent decrease. In his address to the Fac-ulty Senate last week, UF President Kent Fuchs mentioned con-cern about the decline in international graduate students due to federal policies. UF Provost Joe Glover said it's too early to know more specific reasons for the grad stu-dent decrease, but said the decrease of international grad students was a possible factor."Historically in the col-lege of engineering and in other colleges there has been a large reliance on the flow of students from China," Glover said. "If that flow dries up, whether it is politics or economics or perception or what have you, then I think the college will explore other pipelines of students from other countries."We do have a good flow of international students from countries around the world. But primarily China and India have been large pipes, especially into the College of Engineering, and if those pipes narrow then I think the College of Engineering will have to put in greater efforts to diversify the streams of students that they are trying to attract."Fuchs said last week that more than 41,000 applied for an incom-ing UF freshman class of 6,798, which includes fall and summer B enrollees. Glover said Florida was projecting a class of 6,500 freshmen. The extra 300, Glover said, was the result of a higher yield of students that accepted UF offers compared with prior years. Glover said factors such as affordability and Florida being ranked as one of the top 10 public universities in the U.S. News and World Report helped boost freshman enrollment."There are a lot of universities around this country that are struggling to maintain enrollment," Glover said. "We have the opposite problem."More UF students, but fewer in grad school ST. PETERSBURGFishing rules altered because of red tideFlorida wildlife offi-cials have changed fishing rules for snook and red-fish in areas hit hard by a devastating red tide just ahead of the opening of the popular snook season.The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said Thurs-day that the two sport fish will be designated catch-and-release only along parts of the Gulf coast to protect the stock.It's the latest indication of how devastating the toxic algae bloom has been this summer.Fish kills have been widespread, littering beaches with tons of small fish but also larger mam-mals including sea turtles, dolphins and manatees.Two pygmy killer whales that tried to beach themselves in Clearwater on Wednesday are being tested for the toxin. The whales are being cared for by Mote Marine Lab-oratory and Aquarium in Sarasota. BRIEFSFrom Page A3Having Gillum at the top of the ticket could put Democratic candidates in swing districts in the uncomfortable position of being tied to someone with more ardently liberal views.Impeaching the president is now squarely on the statewide ballot, even if Gillum wouldnt have any authority over the issue as governor.Theyre counting on the anti-TrumpŽ vote, MacManus said. This is turning into a general election thats 100 per-cent nationalized rather than just 50 percent.ŽRepublicans were quick to pounce on Gillum after his primary victory and label him a "radical.""Gillum is by far the most extreme far-left Democrat gubernatorial nominee in Florida history," the Republican Governors Association declared in a press release. "Floridians cant afford the costs of his radical, job-killing agenda."Trump joined in to tweet that Gillum is a failed Socialist Mayor.ŽAnd DeSantis appeared on Fox News to declare that Gillum is "much too liberal for Florida."In the same interview DeSantis sparked an outcry when „ after touting Scott's record in office „ he said "the last thing we need to do is to monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupt-ing the state."Gillum is African-American and Democrats seized on the comment, calling it racist, a charge that also has been levied repeatedly at TrumpDeSantis is a Trump acolyte who was endorsed by the president and is one of his staunchest defenders. His campaign dismissed the charge of racism as "absurd."Ron DeSantis was obviously talking about Florida not making the wrong decision to embrace the socialist policies that Andrew Gillum espouses. To characterize it as any-thing else is absurd,Ž said DeSantis spokesman Stephen Lawson.The early dust up shows just how charged the race is likely to be, following the same pattern as the 2016 presidential election.And just like in 2016, Trump will play a starring role.Where independents stand on Trump and how decisive that is in their midterm vote could be critical in the governors race. Will independent voters who arent as liberal as Gillum overlook some of his positions because they want to send a message to the president? The question becomes this independent group... is that going to be enough?Ž MacManus said of the Trump factor.Gillum and his supporters are quick to cast his progressive bona fides as an asset, saying Democrats have nominated moderates in the past with little success. They believe a more progressive candidate can energize voters who typically dont turn out in midterm elections. GILLUMFrom Page A3like, so we removed the idea of a large parking garage.If youre looking at building a 500-spot parking garage, youre looking at $15 million.ŽOfficials said the loan will be taken out for $2 million with an option to add another $2 million if necessary. The loan will be repaid using Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) funds.The land the council agreed to purchase for parking are 230 N. Baker St., 230 E. Third Ave. and 206 E. Third Ave. The properties are close to an existing surface lot and a parking garage at Bake and Donnelly streets.Officials estimate about $200,000 will be needed for restroom facilities and about $500,000 for the asphalt, lighting and parking spaces.Hayes said 60-85 parking spots would be added with that project.We believe this is solid solution,Ž Hayes said.If another surface lot is needed later, Hayes said there is the old post office site located on the west side of Donnelly just north of Seventh Avenue that can potentially be used for parking.Hayes said that site could add more than 100 surface parking spots or be used for something bigger.The old post office site has the potential for housing a parking garage if the council should wish to go that route in the future,Ž Hayes said.No one from the public spoke about the matter but council members seemed pleased about going forward with more parking.We have been chewing on this piece of meat for 10 years at least and I for one am ready to start taking some action. I see this as the first step at looking at parking and getting this done,Ž said Councilman Cal Rolfson.Councilman Marc Crail said he is glad the city is going with sur-face lots versus parking garages and Councilwoman Laurie Tillett said she is glad for some sort of 'day-to-day' parking solution.We do very, very well with parking when we have big events, festivals; everybody chips in, people park cars in their yards, we have the big peripheral lots, we have shuttles going, we can take care of that. Its the kind of every day type of thing that, or when theres a small event, when we seem to have the most complaints about the parking, so Im gonna support this. I think its high time,Ž Tillett said. LOANFrom Page A3He approached and punched her in the face, according to the report, then continued to scuffle with her on the ground. His ski mask came off during the struggle.A neighbor heard the commotion and went to break it up but could not because of his health reasons,Ž the report states.A sheriffs deputy noted that she had swell-ing and scuff marks on her face and abrasions on her arm.Britton was ultimately charged with aggravated stalking, attempted burglary, pos-session of burglary tools (including a box cutter), criminal mischief and simple battery. A judge had issued the order in July requiring Britton to stay away from the woman.On Aug. 22, prosecutors dropped the aggravated stalking charge. The next day, Britton pleaded no-contest to the remainder of the charges and was sentenced to five years probation. One of the conditions was that he get anger management counseling. Another was that he gets no closer than 500 feet to the woman or her home.The woman was consulted and given input into the sentencing plea arrangement, said Walter Forgie, assistant state attorney.One of the considerations was that the defendant was 81 years old, and he had no crimi-nal history,Ž Forgie said.One of the conditions that she liked in the sen-tence was that he had to wear a GPS ankle moni-tor, Forgie said.She is aware of the current charge as well,Ž Forgie said, adding that no one could have predicted the latest twist with all the restrictions placed upon him.In her request for an injunction in July, she said they used to date. She said onJune 30, he came to her place of work in Eustis and slipped a note under her wind-shield wiper.I wonder where this from, OR where it might go to???Ž the note said. A dinner date might STOP it!!!ŽShe said in a sworn statement that he wrote a letter claiming to be from her saying she was a committed participant in a unicorn (mixed sex) groupƒand it tells other lies about me.ŽShe said he wrote 30 letters, mostly degrad-ing, mean wordsŽ since September, 2017.She said he harassed her in phone messages, texts, emails and letters, plus dropping by house and leaving food, wine at my door step.ŽShe said Britton showed up at a friends house in Leesburg and the friend asked him to leave. The friend left his home and returned45 minutes later, and Britton was still in the parking lot.She said she left the friends house the next morning and her car quit running. Someone had put water in her gas tank, which cost $3,000 to repair. She also reported two cases of vandalism to her home to police.

DailyCommercial.com | Friday, August 31, 2018 A5Theres no dispute that Google promoted Obamas State of the Union speeches from 2012 to 2016, according to webpages captured by the Wayback Machine, an internet archive site.In a statement, Google said it has not histori-cally promoted the first address to Congress by a new president, which is technically not a State of the Union address,Ž so it didnt do so in either 2009, when Obama first took office, or 2017, Trumps first year as president.For 2018, several web pages captured by Wayback Machine show the Google homepage advertising a livestream of Trumps speech with the words: Live! Watch President Trumps State of the Union address on YouTube.ŽThe archive site shows the webpages in Greenwich Mean Time, which is several hours ahead of the Eastern time zone in the U.S. That means the relevant images of the Google homepage promoting Trumps prime-time Washing-ton speech on Jan. 30 are dated one day later, on Jan. 31, Mark Graham, director of the Wayback Machine archive site, told The Associated Press.Separately, Google, which is based in Mountain View, California, provided a link to a Trump-focused Reddit page that features an image of the Google homepage advertising his 2018 State of the Union address.Trumps tweet follows his accusations on Tues-day that Google and other U.S. tech companies are rigging search results so that they highlight nega-tive coverage about him. His statements, offered without valid evidence, echo a conservative talking point that Califor-nia-based tech companies run by CEOs with liberal leanings dont give equal weight to opposing politi-cal viewpoints. TRUMPFrom Page A1 In math, tutored students improved an average of 21 percentage points.In reading, the improvement was even more dramatic: 66 points on average.The district isn't mea-suring the gains achieved by Tutors for Kids, but school teachers and administrators at Leesburg Elementary heaped praise on the group's work.We believe Tutors for Kids has played an integral role in the academic success weve seen in our school,Ž Assistant Principal Maurice Simmons said. They fill in deficits and gaps that some of the struggling students have, resulting in those students growing, which ultimately impacts student achieve-ment here at the school.ŽSimmons added that the schools grade had started improving drastically as well.When we started two years ago, Leesburg Elementary was a D-minus school,Ž Simmons said. The school earned a C rating this year, and Sim-mons is confident it wont stop there.At Leesburg Elementary, the management of the tutoring program is a joint effort between Moore and another coordinator, Greg Robinson. Moore manages K-2 and Robinson handles grades 3-5.They also both work as tutors, and on Thursday they worked with three students, Tyler, Maria, and Kayden, in a morn-ing session in the schools library.The students, all in second grade, study reading with the tutors. I want to learn just like my mom and dad, because they read really fast,Ž Tyler said.The lessons were tailored to the students under the guidance of their teachers.Moore said she works with students two days a week and on each day sees a different set.She uses folders to track students' progress week to week.They each pick a book from her personal collec-tion, and she puts it in that folder with a bookmark they get to keep at the end of the year.Students can also earn books to keep.According to Moore, that is paid for by a grant from United Way, which allows them to keep a small library of books for students who earn them.Each student she worked with on Thursday got two stickers for hard work. They get to keep a book if they earn eight stickers.Some of these students wont be able to get books any other way,Ž Moore said. She added that the opportunity to earn books makes them more attrac-tive and encourages kids to read and work hard.Moores paired teacher, Ann Moore, no relation, believes the lessons shes giving the children and the improvements they are making in tutoring are life-saving.She echoed Simmons' sentiment that the tutors are now a key part of stu-dent development, in some cases making the difference between a students success or failure.Currently, Tutors for Kids is serving over 2,500 students in 13 schools across Lake, Marion, and Sumter counties. HELPFrom Page A1Also, a key issue has been whether the slotmachine law applies to playing a single game or a series of games. While the outcome of the first pre-revealŽ game is known in advance, a player at the outset does not know the results of subsequent games.The ruling Thursday, quoting a section of state law, said the deter-mination of whether the games are illegal slot machines turns on whether the user may receive something of value by reason of any element of chance or any other outcome unpredictable by the user. The element of chance or unpredictability must be inherent in the machine itself.ŽWe hold that the trial court was correct in determining that Ver-sion 67 is a slot machine because the element of chance is inherent in it given that it has a preset win/loss ratio ƒ and that the game outcomes are determined by the machine by chance, via an RNG (random number generator), and there is nothing the user can do to affect the outcomes,Ž said the ruling, written by appeals-court Judge Joseph Lewis and joined by judges James Wolf and Stephanie Ray. Furthermore, Version 67 is a slot machine for the additional and inde-pendent reason that also inherent in it is an outcome unpredictable by the user. While it is true that the user is advised of the outcome of the game at hand ahead of time through the preview feature, the user cannot predict that outcome until it is randomly generated and then displayed by the machine. Nor can the user predict the out-come of Game 2 while playing Game 1.ŽThe games have drawn attention in the gam-bling industry and in the Legislature, which this year debated a proposal to outlaw the machines. The legislative proposal did not pass.The appeals court upheld a decision last year by Leon County Circuit Judge John Cooper, who originally sided with Blue Sky Games and Gator Coin but then reversed himself. The reversal came after the Seminole Tribe of Florida, which became involved in the case, asked Cooper to reconsider his initial decision. The tribe operates casinos that include slot machines.The ruling Thursday described Version 67 as profitable game that depicts traditional slot machine symbols, such as reels; it takes $1 to $20 bills; and the amount of return to the player varies by the amount of money played. Version 67 has a mandatory preview feature that displays the outcome of the game selected before the insertion of any money and before the play button appears.ŽWhen the first game is played, the outcome of the next game is auto-matically generated by the RNG and is stored in memory, and that out-come is displayed when the player presses pre-view for the next game,Ž the ruling said. There is nothing a player can do to change the outcome that is randomly generated by the machine from among millions of potential outcomes.Ž GAMESFrom Page A1 Tyler Joseph, 7, reads a book during a tutor session at Leesburg Elementary on Thursday. [CINDY SHARP/ CORRESPONDENT] Tutor For Kids Coordinator Greg Robertson (center) helps Tyler Joseph, 7, and Maria Morales, 7, read a book at Leesburg Elementary on Thursday. [CINDY SHARP/ CORRESPONDENT] The service for the statesman, former pris-oner of war and two-time presidential candidate unfolded at North Phoenix Baptist Church after a motorcade bearing McCains body made its way from the state Capitol past Arizonans waving American flags and cam-paign-style McCain signs.Family members watched in silence as uniformed military members removed the flag-draped casket from a black hearse and carried it into the church. McCain died Sat-urday of brain cancer at 81.McCains longtime chief of staff Grant Woods, a former Arizona attorney general, drew laughs with a eulogy in which he talked about McCains terribly bad drivingŽ and his sense of humor, which included calling the Leisure World retirement community Seizure World.ŽWoods also recalled the way McCain would introduce him to new staff members by saying, Youll have to fire half of them.ŽThe churchs senior pastor, Noe Garcia, pronounced McCain a true American hero.ŽThe service brought to a close two days of mourn-ing for the six-term senator and 2008 GOP presidential nominee in his home state.A motorcade then took McCains body to the airport, where it was put aboard a military plane that took off for Washington for a lying-in-state at the U.S. Capitol on Friday, a ser-vice at the Washington National Cathedral on Saturday, and burial at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, on Sunday.Twenty-four sitting U.S. senators and four former senators attended the church service, according to McCains office.Neither Biden nor other speakers uttered President Donald Trumps name, but Biden made what some saw as a veiled reference to the president when he talked about McCains character and how he parted company with those who lacked the basic values of decency and respect, knowing this project is bigger than yourself.ŽBiden said McCain could not stand the abuse of power wherever he saw it, in whatever form, in whatever country.ŽDabbing his eyes at times, Biden also referred to his own sons death from cancer, saying of the disease, Its brutal, its relentless, its unfor-giving.Ž And he spoke directly to McCains widow, Cindy McCain, in the front row: You were his ballast.Ž At the end of the nearly 90-minute ceremony, McCains casket was wheeled out of the church to My Way,Ž in tribute to a politician known for fol-lowing his own path based on his personal principles.McCain clashed openly with Trump, who mocked McCain for getting cap-tured during the Vietnam War. Two White House officials said McCains family had asked that Trump not attend the funeral services.The memorial was laced with humor and featured a racially and ethnically diverse roster of speakers and other participants.

The Associated Press[PATRICK SEMANSKY/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]By Mae AndersonThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Google is toeing the line between helping you save time and creeping you out as it turns to machines to suggest email replies on your behalf.The customized autoresponses come in the latest version of Gmail on the web and expand on a feature already available on Android devices and iPhones. Theyre just one more example of how artificial intelligence is seep-ing into everyday online life, whether its to tailor product recommendations or correct spelling.So far the new feature has been drawing mixed responses from users.The new feature, called Smart Reply, offers three short responses, like It was great seeing you too,Ž or Ill look into it.Ž Unlike standard auto-replies when on vacation, for instance, these are customized to an individual email based on its context. If you select one, you can either send it immediately or edit it before sending.The responses are automatically created using Googles artificial intelligence systems. Humans arent reading peoples emails, but machines are scanning them. Although Google stopped scanning email to target advertising in 2017, it still scans them to filter out junk mail, identify phishing scams and, now, to create suggested replies. (Yahoo and AOL, both owned by Verizon, still scan email for advertising.) Googles suggestions draw on whats in your email, such as the text of the message and the subject line. The analysis can include past conversations. For example, if someone says Thanks!Ž more often than Thanks,Ž with no exclamation point, the suggested response would likely reflect that.Its not known, though, how far Google goes in scan-ning your email. For instance, Gmail scans attachments for security risks, but is it also using that information to customize responses? The machines behind Google Photos can tell whether an image has food, flowers or the beach. Might Gmail suggest, How was lunch?Ž Google didnt respond to a query for details on what it scans for replies.Brian Lam, a San Diego attorney who focuses on pri-vacy and data security, said auto-replies represent a tradeoff between privacy and new features that consumers may want.ŽGoogle has been scanning Gmail since its debut in 2004, so scanning for auto-replies shouldnt come as a surprise.

DailyCommercial.com | Friday, August 31, 2018 A7 Compared to what Congress should be doing in the face of multiple foreign threats to the integrity of U.S. elections, the Secure Elections Act is just a first step. Yet the Senate is having trouble taking even this initial move. The fault lies with a shortsighted White House, which has poured cold water on the bill, and some state leaders, who complain about being required to make some basic changes. The bipartisan bill, shepherded by Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., appeared to be on its way to easy passage in October. But a committee session to consider the modest bill was suddenly and curiously canceled last week. Yahoo News reported that one cause was the White House, quoting a Trump administration spokeswoman who expressed opposition to "legislation with inappropriate mandates or that moves power or funding from the states to Washington for the planning and operation of elections." If anything, the bill's "inappropriate mandates" are not strong enough. One of its most promising provisions would require states to conduct postelection audits to confirm the integrity of the count. Yet election security expert Lawrence Nordenof the Brennan Center for Justice pointed out in an email that "it's a 'soft' mandate, in that it doesn't require a manual review of paper, and it leaves it up to the chief state election official to interpret what it means." He speculated that "many states would decide to satisfy the new mandate with something that's less than scientifically solid." Yet any audit requirement would represent progress over the status quo. Beyond the audit provision, the bill would require companies that states hire to provide election services to tell officials when they detect a cybersecurity problem. It would call for establishing voluntary cybersecurity guidelines for states; similar guidelines for voting machines have helped push states to upgrade. It would also encourage voting machines that use paper, a crucial move away from the all-electronic systems that some states use. Some voting record must exist outside the realm of hackable software. The bill might be more palatable to state elections officials wary of federal interference if it came with money for states to institute its mandates. But congressional Republicans have so far balked at the idea of ponying up any cash beyond the $380 million Congress already set aside for state election systems. That amount will not come close to meeting the states' vast technological needs. With only a few months left before the November elections, states should be scrambling. The Brennan Center recommends making backup paper copies of voter registration lists, stocking polling sites with lots of emergency paper ballots and establishing redundant websites on which voters can access polling information if the primary sites go down. In many states, more fundamental election security changes will have to wait. It took Congress and the states far too long following the 2016 presidential vote to prioritize election security, and now there is only so much they can do before this year's midterms. They will have to work harder to get the country ready for 2020 and that might include convincing the White House that the effort is necessary. „ The Washington PostDont shortchange election security ANOTHER OPINION New 1040 tax forms aren't a simpli“ cation Every spring, I volunteer as a free income tax preparer. With all the changes to the tax code this year, I thought I thought I'd do a little research, starting with form 1040. Here's what I found. You may have heard Donald Trump touting the desire to have Americans file their tax returns on a postcard. Well, the new Form 1040 comes close. Instead of being two full pages, it is now two half pages. It took the genius of the Trump Administration to do this. They did this by taking line items from the old 1040 and placing them on six schedules, which must be attached to the new 1040. Sch 1, Additional Income and Adjustments to Income, originally on page 1. Sch 2, Tax; Sch 3, Nonrefundable Credits; Sch 4, Other Taxes; Sch 5, Other Payments and Refundable Credits, all originally on page 2. Sch 6, Foreign Address and Third Part Designee, originally on both pages. So, a tax return which last year required two pages to print, will now take up to eight. Quite frankly, I don't know why previous presidents didn't do this. Then they could have taken credit for this simplification. Perhaps they didn't because they weren't idiots and knew that just moving line items to separate forms is not simplification. In fact, it's a complication. Find draft forms at irs.gov/ DraftForms and final forms at irs.gov/DownloadForms. Mark McKean, Tavares Congress needs to put the country ahead of party Congress needs to take action concerning the felony convictions surrounding Trump's i nner circle „ Flynn, Manafort and now Cohen, among others „ and the implications for Trump's own potentially criminal actions or conspiracy to commit criminal actions. In addition to the continuing investigation by Special Counsel Mueller, Congress at the very least needs to inquire further, question, confront and better understand the matter of Cohen implicating President Trump in a clear criminal act as a part of his testimony on Aug. 21. Additionally, while there is open investigation into Trump, on the very nature of how he won the office of the presidency, any of his Supreme Court nominees should not be considered for the vacancy. There should be no Congressional vote for Trump's nominee, Kavanaugh. I have no doubt that a Liberal-leaning judge would not be considered if nominated by a Democratic president under similar circumstances. In fact, if the situation was reversed and a Democratic president was similarly embroiled in legal controversy and was just implicated in a criminal act, I am certain impeachment proceedings would already be well under way by a Republican majority in Congress. The job of Congress is not to protect the President of the United States, no matter their party, but instead to hold the office accountable and to protect our democracy, to honor the rule of law and to always uphold the Constitution. Simply put, with the chaos of this administration and this president, please do these things you were elected to do. Congress is the check on the executive branch. Think of the country before party here. Please do the right thing. Alan Harris ClermontLETTERS TO EDITORThere were 72,000 deaths from drug overdoses last year, but let's talk about something else: about Michael Cohen and his paying off two women in 2016 not to talk about sex with Donald Trump, and how this is the most important thing in the world right now. It isn't. For Trump, it is probably not a crime at all, surely not an impeachable offense, but the hype is as big as the grins. It's the top of the news and tragically disruptive of the ordinary, crucial functioning of government, just as the special counsel investigation of Russian collusion … where did that go? … has been from the start. To see how such disruption can work to national detriment, let's travel backward from Trump, Barack Obama and George Bush to Bill Clinton. In his second term, he had figured out that Social Security was going to generate a major crisis without the proper adjustments and was kept from doing anything about it by the Monica Lewinsky crisis. Impeachment was looking Clinton in the face. It was the chief focus of Washington attention, and for him to immerse himself in a political controversy was unthinkable. Here was someone with the charm, negotiating prowess, knowledge and explicatory gifts to get crucial reforms enacted, but not in these circumstance and not with the tall tales of such reforms cheating and torturing recipients What we had in the demagogic resistance was by far the biggest threat to Social Security and sister programs and their recipients and a definite threat to a sustainable budget and workable national economy. When Clinton's less personally empowered successor moved bravely and intelligently for positive change, he was flattened. We can say, look, there were serious charges against Clinton, but an important good was defeated by this pointlessly prolonged, politically exacerbated fight that was never going to end in his eviction from office. In the assault on Trump, we have had felonious leaks from intelligence agencies, all kinds of resignations, firings, demotions and reprimands in a politically zealous Justice Department still refusing to do what the Constitution says: give Congress the requested facts about possibly illicit anti-Trump connivance. On top of all of this, we have had the diminution of focus on issues counting for much more, such as the opioid epidemic decimating our white working class. Trump has some good points on this issue, such as stopping the smuggling of heroin from Mexico and fentanyl from China, but he goes awry with his call for death penalties for the sellers. Analyses tell us how doctors need to be more careful with prescriptions, but there is terrible pain to deal with, and when the prescriptions stop heroin abuse begins. There's an antidote to overdose fatalities, we learn, but overdoses follow overdoses and more is needed, such as rehab that just can't reach all in need. Localities and community groups have done noble work, but the number of abusers keeps going up and so much more is crucial … including more national attention. It's hardly as if the issue and others of major importance have been misplaced, but everything right now is overshadowed by the anti-Trump movement, not least of all the extraordinary results of his deregulation and tax reform measures. There are those who refuse to give him any credit despite all kinds of empirical evidence, and those who maybe don't see how a better economy also combats social problems, enabling the depressed and destitute to find rescue in jobs instead of drugs. I share many of the misgivings of those upset about Trump's scatter-brained, low-brow behavior past and present, but he was duly elected, many of his policies have merit, the impeachment case against him actually appears weaker instead of stronger despite what some would have you believe and it's time to focus more on such issues as 72,000 deaths by way of drug overdoses a year.

A8 Friday, August 31, 2018 | DailyCommercial.com Concern grows that the administrations shrinking number of advisers is happening at a perilous timeBy Zeke Miller, Jill Colvin and Jonathan LemireThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Increasingly convinced that the West Wing is wholly unprepared to handle the expected assault from Democrats if they win the House in November, President Donald Trumps aides and allies are privately raising alarm as his circle of legal and communica-tions advisers continues to shrink.With vacancies abounding in the White House and more departures on the horizon, there is growing concern among Trump allies that the brain drain at the center of the administra-tion could hardly come at a more perilous time. Special counsel Robert Muellers swirling probe of Russian election inter-ference and potential obstruction of justice by Trump has reached ever closer to the Oval Office, and the upcoming mid-term elections could grant his political adversaries the power of subpoena or, more worryingly, the votes to attempt impeachment.Nine current and former White House staffers and administration allies are expressing concerns that the West Wing is simply unprepared for the poten-tial troubles ahead. They spoke on the condition of anonymity over concerns about estranging colleagues.Attrition, job changes and firings have taken their toll across the White House, but their impact has been felt particularly in the communications and legal shops two departments crucial to Trump staving off the looming threats. The upcoming departure of White House counsel Don McGahn has highlighted the challenges in an office that has shrunk by a third since last year.McGahns deputy and chief of staff, Annie Don-aldson, is also expected to leave soon after McGahn departs, two staffers said. Similarly, the White House press office is down to four press secretaries working on day-to-day White House matters, including Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and the regional and Cabinet affairs media teams in the communications office have been hollowed out.The staffing shortage and struggles to recruit top-flight talent have left the White House illprepared to handle the legal onslaught that may come when Mueller issues an expected report sum-marizing his findings and the flood of congressional investigations that could follow a Democratic take-over of the House.Former Fox News executive Bill Shine, who joined the White House earlier this summer as communications director and deputy chief of staff, is looking to rebuild a shrunken media affairs team in anticipation of the challenges ahead.Shine is said to be looking for seasoned communications profes-sionals to handle both Mueller-related questions and congressional oversight requests.Hes doing a lot of thinking about how to properly structure everything, not only for a Trump White House but for what the next couple of years will be like, said former White House press secretary Sean Spicer.But like other White House departments, the effort to fill jobs is proving difficult. Qualified candidates are steering clear of the volatile West Wing, ignoring pleas from Shine and others to join the administration over fears to their reputation and even potential legal exposure, according to current and former officials and one candidate approached by the White House. Those people and others spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private deliberations and conversations.Others are wary of join-ing the team to defend the president, knowing full well he will often ignore their advice or could turn on them by tweet.A White House official disputed that the administration has had difficulty filling positions with talented people.Trump allies have long boasted that he was his own political consultant during the 2016 campaign and serves as his own communications director inside the White House, but they are increasingly cautioning him that he cant be his own attorney as well.Trump allies fret over vacancies

DailyCommercial.com | Friday, August 31, 2018 B1By Howard FendrichThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Nick Kyrgios was losing big at the U.S. Open on Thursday, and barely even trying. Didnt move while so-so serves flew by for aces. Casually put groundstrokes into the net. Double-faulted without caring.The crowd began booing. The chair umpire, Mohamed Lahyani, decided to intervene. In an unusual sight for Grand Slam tennis, Lahyani clambered down out of his seat during a break between games, leaned over with hands on knees, and spoke with the 30th-seeded Kyrgios, saying, among other things, I want to help you.ŽIt all seemed like an impromptu intervention for the mercurial Kyrgios, right out there on Court 17 at Flush-ing Meadows, and it raised questions about whether Lahyani overstepped his duties as someone whos pri-marily there to keep score and keep order. Kyrgios went from trailing by a set and a break at the time to wresting control of the match „ setting up a third-round showdown against Roger Federer „ by coming back to beat Pierre-Hugues Herbert 4-6, 7-6 (6), 6-3, 6-0.This was not his job,Ž Herbert said about Lahyani, whom he thinks should be sanctioned in some way. I dont think hes a coach, hes an umpire, and he should stay on his chair for that.ŽThe U.S. Opens referee and chief umpire were reviewing what happened, as was the Grand Slam Board.

Franks was benched three times last season, went 3-5 as the starter and finished with more turnovers (11) than touchdown passes (9). The Gators (4-7) posted their second losing record in five years, and the offense ranked in triple digits nationally for the sixth time in the past seven seasons.Nothing to prove? It wasnt all Franks fault, but he was often criticized for lacking situational aware-ness and having poor pocket presence.Some even expected Franks to transfer after Florida hired coach Dan Mullen to replace Jim McElwain.Franks stuck around and was named the starter Monday after five months of competition against high school backup Kyle Trask and freshman Emory Jones, who has a ways to go as a passer.Mullens decision was hardly a surprise, but some of Franks responses to get-ting the job raised eyebrows.Just ready to get back out there and, not prove myself, but just kind of go back out there and build confidence back up for the team,Ž Franks said. Im not trying to prove anything to anybody. I dont have anything to prove to anybody.ŽFranks ended last season by throwing three intercep-tions and getting sacked five times in a loss to rival Florida State. He also fumbled early and watched helplessly as the Seminoles returned it for a touchdown.That was a rough one,Ž he said.Franks has waited more than nine months to get back on the field.He should get a confidence boost in the opener.

One game into the 2018 season, the Bulldogs already know what it feels like to lose a game.But there is no panic at MDCA after dropping the season-opener 25-20 to Seffner Christian on a last-second touchdown. Im a big believer that you learn a whole lot more from a loss than you do from a win,Ž MDCA coach Kolby Tackett said. Im not happy that we lost, but I know its all part of the process and we need to keep building and growing.ŽTackett set his team up with a tough opening stretch to help the Bulldogs get ready for when they begin competition in the Sunshine State Ath-letic Conferences Orange Division, which holds the path to the playoffs.That tough stretch includes this weeks game against Orlando Christian Prep, which made it to the SSAC quarterfinals a year ago before losing to eventual runner-up Win-dermere Prep. MDCA also made it to the quarterfi-nals a year ago.I think what hurt us last year was that we got off to such a strong start that we never faced adversity,Ž Tackett said. This year we open with back-to-back-to-back tough games and its good that we face that kind of challenge.ŽLAKE MINNEOLA (1-0) at SOUTH LAKE (1-0) 7 p.m.Last week, Lake Minneola beat Eustis 20-14 and South Lake ran past Kissimmee Liberty 50-32.This game has all the trappings of an offensive shootout. South Lake had 546 yards of total offense „ 325 yards rushing and 221 passing „ against Liberty. Kelley Joiner Jr., the leading rusher in the state in 2017, looked primed for a repeat performance by leading the Eagles ground attack with 294 yards on 23 car-ries and five touchdowns. Joiner averaged 12.8 yards per carry. South Lake quarterback Baylee Heuser completed 67 percent of his passes (12 of 18) for 221 yards. Lake Minneola totaled 417 yards of offense, includ-ing 368 on the ground. Running backs Chase Meinhart (118 yards) and Zavier McClendon (116) surpassed the century mark in rushing.We are playing a very talented Lake Minneola team,Ž said South Lake coach Mark Woolum. Our goal is to always get better. We are focused on getting better on a few things from last week. This is a big game for our boys and the biggest challenge so far this season.ŽLake Minneola coach Walter Bank said, Were looking forward to play-ing South Lake. Well have find a way to stop „ or at least, slow down „ Kelley Joiner. It will also be important for us to eliminate mistakes and take advantage of every scoring opportunity we have. Because our schools are so near to each other, I expect a lot of our fans to be there and it should be a great atmosphere for high school football.Ž Next week, South Lake travels to Crescent City and Lake Minneola hosts Oviedo Hagerty.NATURE COAST TECH (0-1) at SOUTH SUMTER (1-0) 7:30 p.m.Its been a big couple of weeks for South Sumter. First came a satisfying win over Wildwood in the preseason Kickoff Classic and then came a 43-7 thumping of Lees-burg in the regular season opener.The Raiders would like to think its just the start. Players wear shirts with the word REDemptionŽ on the back, making a statement about what this year is all about after last years winless season.Next up on that redemption tour is Nature Coast Tech, a team that handled South Sumter 33-7 a year ago in Brooksville.The Sharks opened the season with a 30-27 loss at Orange Park Ridgeview.They are extremely big and fast and we didnt tackle very well last week,Ž South Sumter coach Ty Lawrence said. We have to tackle better to have a chance in this game.ŽMike Weston carried the ball 33 times for 292 yards and four touchdowns in the Sharks season-opening loss, but Nature Coast Tech completed only one pass in the game.South Sumter was more balanced against Leesburg, rushing for 280 yards and throwing for 168 in a game that saw a running clock start in the third quarter.Our kids needed that,Ž Lawrence said of the win over Leesburg. Confidence has always been a huge factor for our kids over the past 25 to 30 years. Weve won a lot of games we werent sup-posed to win because our kids didnt know they werent supposed to win. As we start getting our confidence back, were a lot happier.ŽEAST RIDGE (0-1) at NICEVILLE (0-1) 8 p.m. (EDT)For the second straight year East Ridge makes the long bus ride to the Panhandle to take on traditional power Nicev-ille. Niceville won that game last year 49-13 but it didnt keep the Knights from becoming a playoff team in their first year under coach Jason Robinson. For East Ridge, there is a little more at stake this year after the Knights dropped their season opener 35-33 to Mount Dora when they were stopped on a 2-point con-version try with 1:29 left in the game.Niceville opened the season with a 27-15 loss to Tallahassee Lincoln, which is also considered one of the stronger teams in the state.Lincoln held Niceville to 193 yards of total offense, including 76 yards rushing on 25 carries.East Ridge had 210 yards of offense, but was hurt by three interceptions against Mount Dora. Junior Kyeandre Magloire led the Knights on the ground, rushing for 70 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries.Senior Sammy Becorest had four catches for 62 yards and a touchdown for East Ridge.We are looking forward to traveling to Niceville and playing hard,Ž Robinson said.THE VILLAGES (1-0) at JASPER HAMILTON COUNTY (0-1) 7:30 p.m.Last week, The Villages blanked Tavares 35-0 and Hamilton County lost to Baldwin 52-0.In last weeks win, the Buffalo dominated on both sides of the ball. Defensively, The Villages held Tavares to 98 yards of total offense. On offense, the Buffalo totaled 423 yards, includ-ing 351 yards rushing.We expect to see a typical Hamilton County team,Ž Pettus said. Lots of team speed. Well have our work cut out for us containing the speed of the Trojans, but were looking forward to the challenge.ŽHamilton County will have its work cut out trying to slow down Buf-falo quarterback Mac Harris. A true run-pass threat, Harris passed for 49 yards and ran for 67 against Tavares. His passing numbers were somewhat muted because The Villages had so much success on the ground and were rarely forced into obvious throwing situations.The Buffalo offensive line and defensive lines controlled the line of scrimmage, keeping constant pressure on the Bulldogs while opening holes for running backs Corey Goldwire and Bryce Mellado. Wide receiver Ezekial William-sonbey also ran 52 yards on an end around to set up The Villages second score of the game.Next week, The Villages will host Pierson Taylor.JACKSONVILLE UNIVERSITY CHRISTIAN (1-1) at WILDWOOD (0-1) 7 p.m.Last week, University Christian lost to Class 5A powerhouse Jacksonville Bolles 47-7. Wildwood lost at Gainesville P.K. Yonge 25-6.To say it was a turbulent week for Wildwood might be an understatement. On Monday, head coach Joey McGuire resigned after only game and was replaced on an interim basis by offensive coordinator J.B. Bynum. McGuire said if he had not stepped down, school administrators were pre-pared to terminate him. The official reason given by Athletic Director Ryan Harrison for the change was due to concerns about the direction the program was going.Wildwood was outgained 432-176 by P.K. Yonge. Kanyon Walker scored the Wildcats only touchdown on a 25-yard run in the third quarter.Bynum has indicated he looks to get the Wildcats back to doing the things they did last year when they averaged nearly 36 points per game en route to a 9-1 campaign.University Christian was the Class 2A state runners-up last season and have won eight state titles in its history. How-ever, the Christians were no match for Bolles, the winningest program in state history with 11 football championships. University Christian had only 71 yards rushing and managed just 79 more through the air.The Christians opened their season with a 34-16 win on Aug. 17 against Indian Trail (North Caro-lina) Metrolina Christian Academy.Next week, Wildwood will hit the road to play Mount Dora Christian Academy and the Bulldogs University of Florida commit, Jesiah Pierre.WINTER HAVEN ALL SAINTS ACADEMY (1-0) at FIRST ACADEMY OF LEESBURG (0-0) 7 p.m.All First Academy home games will be played at the Sleepy Hollow Sports Complex near the airport.Last week, All Saints blasted Ocala Christian 49-0. This is First Academys season opener.First Academy dropped down a division in the Sunshine State Athletic Conference this year in an effort to be more com-petitive with its smaller roster size. As a result, Eagles have scheduled seven games this season.This will mark the Eagles first game with Kevin Scarborough as coach. Scarborough stepped in after Sheldon Walker stepped down following the 2017 season after nine years with the program. Scarborough is hoping to have 21 players suiting up for the opener after finishing last season with only 12 players in uniform.The Eagles will look to quarterback Sammy Punt and athlete Traveon Cummings for on-field leadership.All Saints Academy is coached by Stuart Weiss, who is also the schools athletic director. In addi-tion, Weiss is president of the SSAC, a position he has held since 2012. Under Weiss leadership, the SSAC has grown from a football only league with just seven schools to a six-sport loop with more than 90 schools.First Academy won the SSAC title in 2013.Next week, First Academy will host St. Petersburg Keswick Christian.BROOKSVILLE CENTRAL (0-1) at TAVARES (0-1) 7 p.m.This game was supposed to be played Thursday night but was moved to Friday because of miscommunicationŽ between the teams.Tavares has had trouble getting its offense untracked in both the preseason Kickoff Clas-sic and in last weeks 35-0 season-opening loss to The Villages, where the Bulldogs were held to 47 yards passing and 43 yards rushing.Lemuel Miller had most of the offense for Tavares against The Vil-lages, rushing 15 times for 40 yards. Quarterback Tyquan Wiggins completed 6 of 17 passes for 47 yards and was under duress for most of the game.Tavares had a couple of key turnovers to keep the Bulldogs from mounting a serious scoring threat.Central opened its season with a 41-0 loss to Spring Hill Springstead, a Class 6A team that was 8-3 a year ago. Central went 2-7 last season, with one of its two wins being a 49-31 victory over Tava-res in Brooksville.They have some good players and take advan-tage of them in all phases of the game... but we feel like we match up with them and can give them a great challenge,Ž Tava-res coach Scott Armatti said.PREVIEW CAPSULES FOR TONIGHTS HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL GAMESEast Ridge junior Troy Shirley looks to pass against Mount Dora last week in Clermont.

B4 Friday, August 31, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comBy Pete IacobelliThe Associated PressDARLINGTON, S.C. „ If Kyle Busch needed extra motivation for the South-ern 500, hes gotten it from Ernie Irvan „ or, more specifically, Irvans paint scheme from 20 years ago. Busch, NASCARs points leader, is itching to drive a Skittles-themed red car like Irvan used in 1998 when Darlington Raceway honors seven decades of stock car racing history at its latest throwback weekend. Seems like when we put a cool paint scheme on the car, we run better,Ž Busch smiled. Hell have plenty of competition on the track and in the garage as teams throughout the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series dress out for Darlingtons latest celebration of the sports deep, rich past of characters and seat-of-the-pants driving success. For those unfamiliar with Southern 500 weekend, think Old Timers Day at 180 mph. Busch has loved coming to Darlington the past few years knowing hell see things he may have only glimpsed in grainy race footage or photo albums. Racers and crews break out vintage clothes and modified looks with young guns like Kyle Larson and Ryan Blaney sporting mustaches as part of their throwback weekend. I think a lot of guys really get into it,Ž Busch said. Darlington Raceway has some things to show off, too. Since the last time the series was run there, the track underwent some $7 million in improvements. Track leaders widened and modernized long-out-ofdate seats and got rid of dilapidated metal bleachers Darlington Throwback: Racers ready to blast through the pastChair umpires are never made available to the media, but tournament referee Brian Earley said Lahyani explained that he left his perch to make sure he could communicate effectivelyŽ with Kyrgios in a noisy arena.According to Earley, the official said he wanted to check whether Kyrgios needed medical attention and to warn the player that Lahyani would need to take actionŽ if the seeming lack of interest in the match continued.ŽDuring an occasionally confrontational and sarcastic exchange with reporters, Kyr-gios laughed at the suggestion that he had received coaching or a pep talk from Lahyani. I mean, like, I dont have a coach. I havent had a coach for, like, years. Of course he wasnt coaching me. Like, what are you talking about?Ž Kyrgios said.He said he liked me. Im not sure if that was encour-agement. He just said that its not a good look,Ž Kyrgios said about his chat with Lahyani. Look. I wasnt feeling good. I know what I was doing out there wasnt good. I wasnt really listening to him, but I knew it wasnt a good look.ŽKyrgios, a 23-year-old Aus-tralian, has run into trouble in the past for not giving his all during matches, even drawing a fine and suspension from the ATP mens tour in 2016.As Herbert put it: Just sometimes hes mentally not here.ŽWhat theres never been a doubt about, however, is Kyrgios talent and ability to entertain „ when he puts his mind to it. He burst onto the scene by stunning Rafael Nadal as a teenager at Wimbledon in 2014, and he owns a victory over 20-time major champion Federer, too.After reaching the third round by defeating Benoit Paire 7-5, 6-4, 6-4, Federer criticized Lahyani for going to talk to Kyrgios for as long as he did, and from as close as he did.Normally, a chair umpire leans over from his or her post to speak to a seated player during a changeover.I dont know what he said. I dont care what he said. It was not just about, How are you feeling? Oh, Im not feel-ing so well. Go back up to the chair. He was there for too long. Its a conversation. Con-versations can change your mindset. It can be a physio, a doctor, an umpire, for that matter,Ž Federer said. Thats why it wont happen again. I think everybody knows that.ŽIt was, to be sure, the most conversation-worthy topic on Day 4 at Flushing Meadows, where the afternoons results were fairly humdrum. Two past U.S. Open cham-pions were on the Arthur Ashe Stadium night session sched-ule: Two-time winner Novak Djokovic faced Tennys Sand-gren of the U.S., before 2006 titlist Maria Sharapova played Sorana Cirstea of Romania.Three seeded men departed earlier, with No. 12 Pablo Car-reno-Busta, a semifinalist in 2017, stopping in the fifth set of his match with a leg injury, while No. 14 Fabio Fognini lost to John Millman 6-1, 4-6, 6-4, 6-1, and No. 23 Hyeon Chung was beaten by Mikhail Kukushkin 7-6 (5), 6-2, 6-3.The 11th-seeded woman, Daria Kasatkina, was eliminated by Aliaksandra Sasnovich, but 2016 champion Angelique Kerber, 2017 runner-up Madison Keys and two-time Wimbledon champ Petra Kvitova all won. US OPENFrom Page B1Nick Kyrgios reacts against Pierre-Hugues Herbert during the second round of the U.S. Open, Thursday in New York. [SETH WENIG/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] The Gators host Charleston Southern of the Football Championship Subdivision. The Bucs are 0-19 against teams from the Football Bowl Subdivision, including a 49-0 loss against Mullen and Mis-sissippi State to begin 2017.Charleston Southern also was overmatched during its lone visit to Gainesville in 2009, a 62-3 setback in the opener.The Gators havent been the same offensively since that one-loss season, which was Tim Tebows senior year.Quarterback play has been shaky, at best, with 12 different starters and none of them throwing more than 12 touch-downs in any season.Franks hopes to end the trend, and hell have arguably the most talent of any of the others around him.Florida is loaded at running back, with Jordan Scarlett, Lamical Perine and Malik Davis leading the way, and has two intriguing additions to the receiving corps with Van Jefferson (Mississippi) and Trevon Grimes (Ohio State).But the offensive line remains the biggest question mark despite having four experienced starters back.Weve got to take care of our business up front,Ž cooffensive coordinator John Hevesy said.If everything pans out, Franks could be the beneficiary.If youre the quarterback, youve got everybody on your shoulders, everybody in your head,Ž defensive back Chauncey Gardner-Johnson said. I tell Feleipe every day: Its your turn. Its your year.Ž So I feel like this years for him and its up there for grabs.Ž GATORSFrom Page B1 Ive hit some balls and Ive just felt really weak. Thats just from the traveling and playing a lot these past couple months. But thats what afternoons are for, and thats what Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday this week is for „ to make sure you get rested, so come tomorrow youre ready to go.ŽThe Dell Championship starts Friday for the tradi-tional Labor Day finish at the TPC Boston, though this will be the last time for that.Because the Boston area has shown such strong support for this tournament since it began in 2003, it was not killed off entirely with the shrinking postseason next year. Instead, it will alternate with Liberty National in New Jersey for the opening FedEx Cup event.But it will be the last time the final round ends on Labor Day because next year the season ends on Aug. 25, before football gets started.A little more than just advancing to the next FedEx Cup event is at stake this week.The top 70 in the standings will go to the BMW Champi-onship outside Philadelphia, and for a small number of players, its either the last chance or another chance to audition as a potential cap-tains pick for the Ryder Cup.Bryson DeChambeau did himself a world of good with his four-shot victory Sunday at The Northern Trust, espe-cially having narrowly missed qualifying on his own. Woods and Phil Mickelson would appear to be certain choices.U.S. captain Jim Furyk announces three of his picks on Tuesday, and the fourth pick will be made after the BMW Championship.For now, its all about moving on and trying to keep shirts dry in this sweat-soaked environment, though a break from the heat is expected by the weekend. PGAFrom Page B1 Eustis, however, won the last two games „ 28-9 in a weather-shortened game in 2016 and 35-28 last year „ and the Panthers are looking for the trifecta.Dating all the way back to the 1920s, Eustis has only beaten Leesburg three times in a row just three times (1940, 1941, 1942; 1977, 1978, 1980; 1996, 1997 1998),Ž said Eustis coach Mike Hay, who will face Leesburg for the seventh time as Panthers coach and is 2-4 in his previous meet-ings with the Yellow Jackets.This game is a huge stepping-stone to get back on track. It would also allow these young men to become just the fourth group of Panthers to accomplish a three-year winning streak against Leesburg and have a chance to win four in a row for the first time ever. Its the kind of game that play-ers on both sides will look back on 20, 30, 40 years from now when they remi-nisce about their high school days.ŽLike many longstanding rivalries, the Panthers and Yellow Jackets have pro-duced more than their share standout moments ƒ and stellar student athletes. For Eustis, there is Stuart Cottrell, a four-sport stand-out who earned 14 letters during his high school career and earned second-team All State honors as a quarterback in the late 1960s. Cottrell earned a scholar-ship to Marshall University, where he played defensive back, and was among 75 people killed on Nov. 14, 1970, when the Southern Airways DC-9 they were flying in crashed into a hill two miles from Tri-State Airport near Huntington, West Virginia.It is the deadliest sports-related accident in history.And 35 years after Cottrell wrapped up his career with the Panthers, Joe Burnett began his legendary prep career at Eustis. Like Cottrell, Burnett was a multi-sport star, leading the Panthers to countless wins in football and basketball and eventually earning a scholarship to the Univer-sity of Central Florida.Following his college career, Burnett was drafted in the fifth round by the Pittsburgh Steelers, for whom he played one season. He eventually moved on to a long career as a defensive back in the Canadian Foot-ball League.On Leesburgs side of the ball, Danny Trevathan played on both sides of the ball before moving on to Kentucky where he established himself as one of the top linebackers in college. He was drafted by the Denver Broncos in 2012 and played in two Super Bowls, including quarter-back Peyton Mannings final game, Super Bowl L.Other Yellow Jackets who played in college and/or the professional ranks include: Greg Johnson, Dayne Williams, Tory Harrison, and Max Wettstein.Leesburg coach Mark Oates will lead the Yellow Jackets into the Panther Den for the first time as football coach. Nonetheless, he does understand the importance of the game.This game is important to Leesburg for many reasons,Ž Oates said. First and foremost, we do not like losing to Lake County oppo-nents. These communities are so close geographically that there will always be the element of bragging rights throughout your lifetime, based on the outcome on the field.Also, we lost last week and we need to get that bad taste out of our mouths.ŽRivalry games often bring out the best in teams and individuals.Take last year, for example.In Eustis 35-28 win, Pan-thers running back Shamar Buggs „ one of the smallest players on the field „ ran for 256 yards and a touchdown. Keenon Benn also surpassed the century mark for Eustis, running for 110 yards and two touchdowns, includ-ing a backbreaking 53-yard scoring dash with about two minutes left in the game.The stars also shined for Leesburg a year ago, despite the loss. Quarterback Wyatt Rector, who has moved on to Western Michigan Univer-sity, passed for 294 yards and ran for 103 more and scored three touchdowns.More than 200 of Rectors passing yards „ 215 to be exact „ went to receiver A.J. Graham, who caught one touchdown pass. Ironically, Graham is Rectors successor under center this season.Over the years, there have been plenty of stars and lots of gridiron fireworks when the Panthers and Yellow Jack-ets meet. Every year does not always produce a memorable game ƒ but the possibility exists that something unfor-gettable might occur.One things for sure,Ž Hay said, the Panther Den will be filled with excitement for a big-game atmosphere.Ž RIVALRYFrom Page B1Eustis Tanner Romano (9) looks to pass against Leesburg last year in Leesburg.

Kipnis, who has struggled offensively most of the season, lofted a 2-2 pitch from reliever Alan Busenitz that was just out of the reach of leaping Max Kepler. The homer came two batters after Yonder Alonsos tying single. The AL Central-leading Indians opened a 14-game margin over second-place Minnesota. Cleveland is 31-11 against division opponents, and needed this win to beat the Twins 10-9 in the season series. Mike Clevinger (10-7) allowed two unearned runs in 6 2/3 innings. Brewers 2, Reds 1, 11 inn.: Lorenzo Cain hit a home run off the top of the left “eld fence in the 11th inning that lifted the Brewers over the Cincinnati Reds. NL batting leader Christian Yelich went 0 for 4 with a bases-loaded walk for Milwaukee. On Wednesday night, he went 6 for 6 and hit for the cycle as the Brewers outlasted Cincinnati 13-12 in 10 innings. Thats 21 innings in less than 24 hours. The playoff-contending Brewers totaled just six hits in their latest victory. Cain hit the “rst pitch from Austin Brice that hit the wall and bounced over for his 10th homer. LATE Detroit at N.Y.

DailyCommercial.com | Friday, August 31, 2018 C1 DRIVETom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 tom.mcniff@dailycommercial.com Powered by Q: I was having a conversation about cars with my 14-year-old son, and the topic of fuel injection came up. He wanted to know how it works, and I began to tell him but then realized I was talking out of my a-and managed to change the subject. Could you help me out? I hope to revisit this with him after getting my facts straight. „ Dean L.A: Fuel injection has evolved through the years from mechanical systems to a variety of electronically operated (EFI) systems. EFI systems employ an electric fuel pump, typically within the fuel tank, to move fuel to the engine at about 40-50 PSI. Fuel pressure is accurately managed by either a mechanical regulator or by altering the electrical commands to the pump. More recent direct fuel injection systems boost fuel pressure significantly further at the engine with a mechanical pump to pressures as high as 3,000 PSI. Fuel injectors are an electrically operated valve „ a shower head of sorts „ and are accurately pulsed for perhaps 2 to 50 milliseconds each time that cylinders intake valve opens, or the piston reaches a certain position. This broad range of pulse width allows accurate fuel delivery under a wide range of conditions. As a rule, the greater the engine load (power desired), the longer the squirt. As the engine is cranked to start or operated cold, increased pulse width is also required. Older/traditional EFI systems injected fuel into the intake manifold ports (multiport EFI) while more recent systems inject fuel directly into the combustion chamber (direct injection) at very high pressure and in a variety of pulse strategies. Direct injection increases performance and fuel economy by perhaps 20 UNDER THE HOODHow fuel injection worksBy Larry PrintzTribune News ServiceWESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. „ For many, living in Florida means living in a neighborhood with high walls and gated entrances. The neighborhood I live in is no different. To get past the gate, you must have a sticker affixed to the side window of your car. A device reads it as you drive by, and the gate opens. As far as stickers go, it's quite beneficial. It's like the one on a car windshield that shows your car has passed its state inspection; it helps you avoid a citation. Similarly, the sticker on your front window that warns burglars that you've got an alarm system is helpful, but you have to wonder how they got over the wall or past the gate.But other stickers are pointless, such as the new one that Honda places on the hood of the 2019 Honda Pilot. It's meant to inject a rugged sporty attitude to this three-row crossover, along with updated front and rear fascias. But while the facelifted truck looks great, the sticker on the hood looks silly. This is, after all, a family hauler, and all the stickers in the world can't disguise its mission.Honda should be secure. Pilot sales are up 38 percent year-to-date, and it's sold out for last couple years due to capacity constraints. Officials explain that the styling updates are meant to make the Pilot look more like an SUV and telegraph its off-road ability. That's a tall order for a vehicle that shares its underpinnings with the Odyssey minivan, along with much of its driving feel. It also added some of the minivan's family-friendly features, like a Blu-Ray rear entertainment system and CabinTalk, which lets you talk to rear-seat passengers through their wireless and wired headphones. If they're watching a video on the Blu-ray player, CabinTalk pauses the video. Sounds like the perfect rugrat wagon. But is it an SUV?While you contemplate that, some housekeeping.The Pilot comes in ascend-ing LX, EX, EX-L, Touring and Elite trims. All have seating for eight except for the Elite, which has second row captains chairs, although they are available on the Touring.All Pilots are powered by Honda's familiar single-overhead-cam 3.5-liter V-6 rated at 280 horsepower. LX, EX and EX-L models have a six-speed automatic transmission; Touring and Elite trims get an updated nine-speed automatic. Both front-wheel and all-wheel drive is offered on all trims except the Elite, which gets standard all-wheel drive.

LaReauTribune News ServiceHenry Ford famously said a customer can have a car in any color that he wants, as long as it is black.ŽBut black on self-driving cars could be deadly.That can help explain why the May Mobility self-driving shuttles in downtown Detroit have a white base and why paint companies and carmakers have been working diligently over the past four to five years to get the color spectrum just right for future vehicles.Highly-reflective colors like white are more detectable by lidar systems,Ž said Nancy Lockhart, color marketing manager at Axalta Coating Systems in Clinton Township. Black will be the least reflective.ŽThe Light Detection and Ranging (lidar) remote sensors that use light to measure ranges in distance wont be able to seeŽ dark-colored cars or less-reflective paint colors as well as the more reflective, lighter colors, experts say. That could be a significant problem „ lead-ing to crashes „ when the roads are shared with autonomous vehicles one day.All the colors on vehicles today or road signs, road mark-ings, are all designed for our eyes,Ž said David Bem, vice president of science and technology and chief technology officer for PPG in Pittsburgh.Human eyes can adjust, thereby absorbing various light across color spectrums, Bem said. PPG has studied the aerospace industry for years to learn how sensor technology reacts to various colors and reflection. Bem said as the car industry goes to sensor tech-nologies or anything working off a wavelength,Ž the visibil-ity spectrum across light to dark colors can impact how those sensors detect and react. Dark colors tend to absorbŽ light, making it hard for sensors to see, Bem said. But, Those that reflect well have the oppo-site effect and can, in extreme cases, blind sensors,Ž he said.Axalta and PPG scientists are developing and testing a full range of colors that will be visible to lidar systems in a variety of weather conditions and lighting.The popular metallic colors such as silver create a challenge, because, If you walk around a highly metallic vehicle, the color changes in different light,Ž said Lockhart. So those colors tend to be more complex in deter-mining how reflective they will be on the road because you have AVs coming at it at all angles.ŽBut the AV industry is so new that the lack of rules and meth-ods for testing AV paint makes the progress for developing it slow going, Lockhart said. Axalta has devised its own test methods and devices to monitor how the various colors it tests will perform in different envi-ronments, she said.Were working as aggres-sively as the industry will let us, but right now there is no pass or fail,Ž Axaltas Lockhart said. There are no regulations as to testing the AV detection sys-tems, so we are looking at how do we best detect things. There is no worldwide testing unit or spec that says this is what you have to test.ŽYou can have that car in any color you want, as long as its whiteTwo self-driving shuttle buses are expected to go into service carrying passengers on the University of Michigans North Campus in Ann Arbor, Mich.

C2 Friday, August 31, 2018 | DailyCommercial.com By Greg Zyla More Content NowEntry price: $23,340 Price as tested: $32,940 This week, were reviewing the 2018 Kia Niro Touring Hybrid, a small wagon that the Korean manufacturer debuted in 17. Niro comes in a nicelooking five-door hatch design with room for five adults, although the middle rear seat passenger will be a bit tight. Niro is larger than sibling Kia Sportage by 1.2-inches in the wheelbase, making for a more comfortable ride and extra room for passengers and cargo. The Niro starts at $23,340 for the entry FE, then graduates to the LX at $23,650, EX at $26,150 and top class Touring that starts at $32,000 and is near fully loaded. Regardless of choice, consumers receive the exact same drivetrain hybrid system in each and every model. Niros hybrid system utilizes an electric motor, Lithium Ion Polymer battery and an internal combustion engine for motivation, much like the other popular hybrids on the market. This combination delivers a net horsepower of 139 with a most impressive 195 lb. ft. of torque. All Niros rely on a 104horse 1.6-liter Atkinson four-cylinder that works in tandem with a 43-horsepower electric motor and a battery that mounts under the rear seat. Kia calls its hybrid system Full ParallelŽ that delivers smooth, reliable performance and terrific hybrid efficiency. (Dont add the horsepower of the engine and electric motor together as neither ever works in unison at 100-percent capacity. The 139-horse total is correct). A modern design sixspeed dual clutch automatic transmission delivers the power to 16-inch tires on alloy wheels on the entry and mid-level models. Upper class Niro Touring comes with 18-inch tires and a host of other high end amenity features. The result is a Niro that is heavier and thus impacts the MPG numbers lower, with 46 city and 40 highway the EPA estimates versus the 52 city and 49 highway the lower priced models. The front drive Niro handles well as all suspension components are made of strong yet lightweight components. Notable is that the current Niro is not available in an all-wheeldrive (AWD) format, which is puzzling since every other competitor today offers both two and four-wheel drive models on cars/ wagons/crossovers like this. All Kia Niro models feature a UVO infotainment stereo system that highlights eServices technology and numerous functions via your smartphone. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility is standard, as is SiriusXM radio. The FE, LX and EX touch-screens are a seven-inch design with sixspeaker stereo, while the Touring versions receive eight-inch screens and enhanced Harmon Kardon stereos with navigation and eight-speakers. Another feature notable is a blind-spot detection system with lane-change assist and rear cross-traffic alert that is standard on the EX and Touring models. All expected modern day safety items are included on every Niro built, from four-wheel ABS disc brakes to all the airbags. Test Drive: 2018 Kia Niro Touring Hybrid2018 Kia Niro Touring Hybrid.

Likes: Hybrid powertrain, safety, looks, dual-clutch automatic. Dislikes: High tech safety unavailable on entry FE, no AWD model.AUTO BITSCould autonomous technology spell the end of colorful cars? Todays cars come in every possible color. You can get them in bright oranges and reds, mild-mannered blues, or good old black, which once was the only choice. Enjoy all that color while you can because autonomous cars have trouble with some colors. The best color choice is white, so it could be a boring automotive future. The challenge is that lidar (light detection and ranging) systems see highly-reflective colors like white better than other colors, so white is a safer choice. If you knew painting your car a certain color would make it safer, wouldnt you forgo that lime green and go with the safer option? According to Detroit Free Press, lidar has a hard time seeing dark colors and lessreflective paints. This isnt a big deal while we still have human drivers at the wheel, but as autonomous technology takes over it will become a pressing problem. Our driving world is designed for us to see with our human eyes, not a lidar system in an autonomous car. Our eyes adjust, but lidar always has a tough time seeing dark colors that absorb light. If youre imagining bright white cars with ridiculously reflective paints, thats not the solution either. Lidar can be blinded by the reflection the same way sun glinting off a car can blind our eyes. More Content Now percent. Diesel engines have used direct injection and its predecessor, indirect injection, for many moons. An assortment of sensors are used to measure crankshaft and camshaft position, engine and air temperature, engine airflow and/or manifold pressure, throttle position and exhaust composition, among others, so just the right air-fuel mixture and ignition timing can be computed and commanded. Monitoring the exhaust oxygen level allows trimming (adjusting) fuel delivery in compensation for factors the upstream sensors couldn't see such as engine wear, a dirty air filter, or less than par fuel pressure, to name a few. The powertrain control module (PCM) manages all this, striving to deliver the best balance of power, fuel economy, low emissions, and durability. The PCM also manages diagnostic monitoring of components, circuits and performance, and it lists helpful diagnostic trouble codes along with driver notification (the check engine light) as potential problems arise. Fuel injection is only one of the many jobs performed by the PCM. Other systems it manages are the ignition system, emission control system, variable valve system, turbocharger, electronic throttle, variable intake system, transmission, air conditioning compressor, charging system, among others. It's the seamless integration of all these functions that delivers the amazing performance we have come to know. Back in the carburetor days it required five or six liters of engine to deliver 350 horsepower, whereas today a two-liter engine can do the same without belching emissions, wasting fuel and running poorly when cold.

INJECTIONFrom Page C1The test model featured selectable drive modes, which Honda calls Intelli-gent Traction Management, offering normal, snow, sand and mud modes. While few Pilot owners will ever venture off-road, ITM brings more capability than youd expect for venturing into the forest primeval. A quick spin through sand, over moguls and across unimproved ground showed the Pilot to be capable. While not meant for extreme boulder-bashing, the Pilots all-wheel-drive system employs torque vectoring control, which can send 70 percent of the engines torque to the rear wheels and 100 percent to the left or right rear wheel. While the engine remains unchanged, power is strong. Towing is rated at 3,500 pounds, which increases to 5,000 pounds with the towing package. Yanking 4,000 pounds of trailer and toys proves to be easy. When trailering uphill, the trans-mission stays in gear, and doesnt hunt, which makes driving with a trailer easier and more pleasant. When not towing, the nine-speed transmission shifts unob-trusively and always seems to be in the right gear, with-out hunting indecisively between gears.The throttle takes notice-ably more effort to actuate than the incredibly light brake pedal, which has some travel before the brakes engage, and when they do, theyre very sensitive. Once used to it, the Pilot proves easy to drive smoothly while delivering a compliant ride and agile handling.Its enhanced by a comfortable driving position with supportive seats that are not too soft or too hard. The roomy cabin has good head and leg room and is fairly quiet at speed.The redesigned infotain-ment interface is far more attractive than the previous one, Its easy to use, and includes Apple Car Play and Android Auto. A 4G LTE-based Wi-Fi hotspot is optional. A new CabinControl app, available on all models except the LX, allows passengers to use their smartphones to control many Pilot features, includ-ing the audio system, Rear Entertainment System, and rear climate control. Any connected phone can also look up an address and send it to the navigation system. Finally, wireless smart-phone charging is standard on Elite models and available as a dealer-installed accessory on EX, EX-L and Touring trims.And because its a family hauler, Hondas suite of driver assistance systems, dubbed Honda Sensing, comes standard, and includes collision mitigation braking, forward collision warning, road departure mitigation, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist system, and adaptive cruise control. So while Honda may have thought stickers would enhance the 2019 Pilots sporting image, its the vehicles enhanced family friendliness that makes it a leader in its segment.Perhaps the sticker that should go on the hood is a thumbs up.

[HONDA] Axalta develops colors in Mount Clemens, Mich., and then sends them to a new technology center it built near Philadelphia for testing on the vehicles and in environments, Lockhart said.PPG has developed a coating that allows automakers to better manage the reflectivity of specific light wavelengths, Bem said. Within two years, PPG will bring to market advanced coatings that will absorb less infrared light, but still provide beautiful color, he said.PPG has also developed a portfolio of composite coatingsŽ to make it difficult for dirt, water, bugs and road debris to block sensor lenses.Besides the obvious safety advantage of having the right paint color detectable by AV sensors, there might be a finan-cial advantage too. Lockhart suggests that insurers might offer a discounted rate to drivers with cars that have a higher-reflective paint. Lockhard is confident of one thing: The world will not return to the days of Henry Fords monochrome car fleet.I dont think well get to a world that is so vanilla that we cant have different colors,Ž said Lockhart. The industry will find a way to get there.Ž SHUTTLESFrom Page C1

DailyCommercial.com | Friday, August 31, 2018 C3 MOVIES & TVSTAY TUNEDPink Collar Crimes is irresistibly bizarre MOVIE REVIEW MOVIE REVIEW By Ed SymkusMore Content NowBack in the late 1970s, post-WWII stories about Nazis still on the loose were becoming popular. Think of The Boys from BrazilŽ and Marathon Man.Ž The topic is front and center again, this time in a basedon-fact story, set in 1960, of Israeli Mossad agents going to Argentina on a mission to capture and extractŽ Adolf Eichmann, the architect of the final solution,Ž who was hiding out there under an assumed identity. Operation FinaleŽ is a piece of history that starts out as a melodrama, then slowly evolves into a thriller. The first 15 or 20 minutes has a lot going on, not all of it sufficiently explained, with the action switching back and forth from Buenos Aires, a city then teeming with German expats, many of them Nazis on the run, to Tel Avivs Mossad headquarters, where discussions about clues regarding Eichmanns whereabouts are taking place. Once most of the major characters have been introduced, the film and its main story sharpen. Buenos Aires is where 20-something Klaus Eichmann (Joe Alwyn), whose not-named father was said to have been killed in the war, lives with his uncle and aunt, whose shared last name is Klement. Klaus is dating Sylvia Hermann (Hayley Lu Richardson), who has never told Klaus that shes Jewish. Thats probably a good thing, since mild-mannered Klaus hangs out with people who dont bother disguising their virulent anti-Semitism. At a meeting of re-settled Germans, attended by both Klaus and Sylvia, chilling communal shouts of sieg heil become so overwhelming, she runs from the room, aghast. Meanwhile, in Israel, plans are shaping up for that secret mission, once its proven that Eichmann is indeed in Buenos Aires. They will enter the country, follow him, grab him, drug him, get him aboard an El AL flight, and whisk him back to Israel. Some Mossad members would rather kill him, but others want to put him on trial, for the world to see what he did. The script gives plenty of attention to various Mossad agents on the team, but stays mostly on Peter Malkin (Oscar Isaac), a quiet but passionate man whos dealing with inner turmoil caused by the loss of his sister and her children at the hands of the Nazis. He wasnt actually at the horrific events shown in flashbacks, but his ideas of them are feverishly conjured up in his active imagination. When Sylvias family gets information to Mossad that Mr. Klement might be Herr Eichmann, the mission is on. Its a complicated operation, one that goes wrong, is corrected, goes wrong again, and is hindered by the fact that once Eichmann is snatched and clandestinely brought to a safe house for interrogation „ until the flight home is ready „ right wing Argentine authorities are on the lookout for him, and the Israelis are in danger. In that safe house, Eichmann, handcuffed to a chair, and kept either blindfolded or in a dark room, calmly maintains his innocence. I was merely a cog in a machine, digging its way to hell,Ž is about all hell concede. But played by Ben Kingsley, Eichmann is presented as a multidimensional person. It doesnt matter that one Mossad agent warns another that their prisoner is as slippery as they come,Ž he still manages to play psychological games with them, and hides, at least for a short while, the reality that hes a manipulative monster. The films best scenes are the two-handers with only Isaac and Kingsley, just talking, each offering up very different types of performances, working toward what appears to be a wary sort of trust. It reaches full-out ticking clock thriller status toward the end, with bad guys closing in, airport departures being delayed, and more.Justice is demanded and achieved in the post-Holocaust thriller Operation Finale Operation FinaleWritten by Matthew Orton; directed by Chris Weitz With Oscar Isaac, Ben Kingsley, Joe Alwyn, Haley Lu Richardson Rated PG-13 Mossad agent Peter Malkin (Oscar Isaac) speaks with Adolf Eichmann (Ben Kingsley). [MGM]By Ed SymkusMore Content NowHorror films have come a long way. In the 1930s, when Universal reigned as the king of horror, there were the relatively tame Frankenstein,Ž Dracula,Ž and The Wolf Man.Ž Once the 60s and 70s arrived, so did new ways to scare audiences, from the psychological horror of PsychoŽ and Rosemarys BabyŽ to the makeupand special effects-fueled terror of The ExorcistŽ and later on the comic gore of Evil Dead 2.Ž In recent years there was the uneasiness of The Blair Witch ProjectŽ and Cloverfield.Ž Horror has been all over the map. With The Little Stranger,Ž director Lenny Abrahamson (Frank,Ž RoomŽ) has created a class act of a horror film, with nary a monster in sight (of course, monsters dont always have to be in sight). Set in 1948 rural England, this opens with Dr. Faraday (Domhnall Gleeson) making a long drive out to the once splendid estate called Hundreds Hall, owned by the wealthy Ayres family, when a maid has fallen ill. Its only the second time Faraday has been there, the first being as a young lad, when his mother, also a former maid there, brought him to attend a post-WWI party. Though the film regularly inserts momentary flashbacks of that unsettling long-ago memory, Faraday now cant stop thinking that both the home and the members of the Ayres family have seen better days. Longing for the unattainable is a central theme. Faraday, who grew up poor, wishes he could live in this home. Caroline, who was raised there, now wishes she could go away. The ever-present gloominess turns to darkness. Hopes are built up, then dashed. Tragedy ensues. But no monster is seen. The Little StrangerŽ is a subtly creepy movie with an ending thats at the same time conclusive and open to interpretation. The Little Stranger is quietly, e ectively creepyDr. Faraday (Domhnall Gleeson) is pretty sure hes heard a sound on the empty third ” oor. [FOCUS FEATURES] The Little StrangerWritten by Lucinda Coxon; directed by Lenny Abrahamson With Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, Charlotte Rampling, Will Poulter Rated R After watching the incredibleŽ stories on Pink Collar Crimes,Ž warns host Marcia Clark, you may never look at your innocent seeming next door neighbor the same way again.Ž But only if shes a PTA momŽ or a society womanŽ because these ladies are apparently part of one of the fastest growing crime waves in the country. First up is Roxanne in the case of The Minivan Mom Bank Robber.Ž In 2009, Roxanne robbed four banks and she decided to rob the first one after she dropped her five kids off at school. Its completely ridiculous, and thats what makes it so watchable. True crime is riveting. Wacky true crime is practically must-see TV. Roxanne knows her crimes are absurd. She says so in the first few minutes of her interview. The show agrees and reenacts her story in what I can only describe as DatelineŽ-lite. Theres fake Roxanne at her accounts receivable job falsifying the books to increase her commissions. When her prescription drug addiction takes over her senses and her familys financial problems seem inescapable, she buys a mask and a fake gun and walks home from the robbery with $985 (after apologizing to the bank clerk). If you are thinking that Roxanne paid off some bills, went to the grocery store and got gas after returning home and changing clothes, youre right. Because what else are you going to do with $985 from a bank you robbed within walking distance of your house? At this point, Marcia pops up to comment. It will be one of several appearances she makes in front of a green screen depicting bucolic suburban scenes. She pleasantly assures us that Roxanne was in fact, smart (in case youre thinking she was definitely not). Robbing a bank close to home means no complicated getaway and less chance of being caught with evidence. The bank employee who handed Roxanne the money says he felt like he was on Candid Camera,Ž and I resist the urge to look for the hidden camera that must be in my living room as I listen to Roxanne, her mother, her brother and her neighbor comment on the strange series of events. Her neighbor talks about a dark energy that she felt came from Roxannes house. Cut to fake Roxanne unsteadily handing fake neighbor a drink at a pool party reenactment. When Roxanne tells the story of bank number two, I shout, Come on!Ž to no one in particular because this time her choice of disguise was simply a pair of sunglasses. She handed the teller a note and nabbed $1,351. Marcia checks back in. Multiple crimes,Ž she says, establish a pattern of behavior.Ž The third bank is in the next county. The fourth is across the street from the third. When a cop pulls her over, she confesses to everything, which is fair enough considering all her demand notes were crumpled in her cars cup holder. She is sentenced to three years and eight months. Roxanne is now remarried and off drugs. I had a little moment of insanity 10 years ago,Ž she says and asks the interviewer for a glass of wine.

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are happily married, but have one serious problem. Our sleeping habits are incompatible. I am an extremely light sleeper; he is a horrendous snorer. He sees a snoring specialist and tried several medical treatments, none of which worked. The only solution is a minor surgical procedure. He doesn't want to have the surgery. He insists he "sleeps ne," and says I'm the one with the problem. I have tried earplugs, white noise machines, sleep medications and more, but I cannot get a decent sleep with the obnoxious snoring. He stays up much later than I do, and I enjoy sleeping in our master bedroom until he comes to bed. I usually get driven out of the room by the noise. We agree we don't want to sleep in separate rooms and lose the intimacy, but it's the only option for me to sleep well. Neither of us wants to give up the master bedroom because it's the only one with an attached bathroom. Am I wrong for asking him to have surgery so we can share a bed? And if he won't, who should get the master bedroom? -SLEEPLESS IN LOUISIANA DEAR SLEEPLESS: Let's be honest. By now your husband knows full well he doesn't "sleep ne." The reason for his reluctance is fear of the surgery. It wasn't wrong of you to ask, and out of consideration for you and the intimacy in your marriage he shouldn't have refused. However, because he insists on coming into the master bedroom, which he knows wakes you, for the sake of your health, take the other bedroom. Understand, the "intimacy bed" does not always have to be the "sleeping bed." Good sleep quality is necessary for us to function properly.DEAR ABBY: I have ve grown children and three grandchildren. They have always come rst, especially my grandchildren. When I began the relationship with my husband, I told him how important both were to me and that, no matter what, my grandchildren always came rst. He agreed and said he felt the same way. Now, two years into our marriage, my daughter and grandchildren want to come live with us for nine months while her husband is deployed. My husband is freaking out and keeps complaining every day even though they aren't even here yet. He has pushed me to my breaking point, and I am not sure what to do. I would never tell him that or act that way toward his children or grandchildren. I'm now considering divorce. What should I do? -FAMILY FIRST IN THE SOUTH DEAR FAMILY FIRST: I can't help but wonder how you would REALLY feel if the shoe was on the other foot. Would you be as accommodating as you expect him to be, or would you be panicking, too? Remind your husband that this is what he agreed to before your marriage, and point out that this isn't forever. It will be for only nine months. Tell him it will be an opportunity for him to get to know the grandkids and vice versa. Who knows? He might even enjoy it. If he's still unhappy after a reasonable period of time after they arrive, then it may be time to discuss separating. But don't jump the gun.
