"It was a hard thing to say no, we cant fund what the sheriff is telling us that he really needs.ŽGrinnell said during a budget hearing on Tuesday that he wanted the larger increase to raise the salaries of deputies and keep their pay competitive with that of officers in surrounding counties.We are significantly lower than surrounding counties, and more importantly, lower than cities in this county,Ž Grinnell said. I believe theres four cities in this county that are paying more than we are, and in the last three or four months, we are starting to see our police leave.ŽSheri gets $3M budget boostLake Commission rejected request for $10 million hikeBy Sarah Rankin and Lolita BaldorAssociated PressRICHMOND, Va. „ The Navy is moving people and ships ahead of Hurricane Florence, and the Air Force and Army are flying advanced aircraft elsewhere as a safeguard. Some remaining Marines, meanwhile, are digging in their heels.Florence is headed for a region with some of the most well-known military bases in the country, including Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, Naval Station Norfolk in Vir-ginia and the Marine Corps Recruit Depot on Parris Island in South Carolina.While thousands of Marines and their families have already left Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina, there was no mandatory evacuation. The commanding general said Tuesday that anyone remaining at the base would have food, water and protection despite being in the projected path of the storm.East Coast military bases brace for Florence By Seth BorensteinAssociated PressWASHINGTON „ To whip up a monstrous storm like the one chugging for the Carolinas you need a handful of ingredients „ and Florence has them all.Warmer than normal sea temperatures to add energy and rain to a storm.

But the change was probably temporary and didn't do anything to lessen the danger, said Jeff Byard, an administrator with the Federal Emergency Management Agency.Awaiting Flos furyPeople walk by the boarded-up front windows of Bourbon Street in preparation for Hurricane Florence, in Wilmington, N.C., on Wednesday.

The order requires the Office of the National Intel-ligence Director to conduct regular assessments about potential foreign interference in the elections, asks for reports by the Homeland Security and Justice departments in the case of meddling in campaignrelated infrastructure, he said. It also describes a process for the Treasury and State departments to recommend appropriate, automatic sanctions.We felt it was important to demonstrate the president has taken command of this issue, that its something he cares deeply about „ that the integrity of our elec-tions and our constitutional process are a high priority to him,Ž Bolton said.With the midterm elections now two months away, National Intelligence Director Dan Coats said the U.S. is not currently seeing the intensity of Russian intervention that was expe-rienced in 2016, but didnt rule it out. He said the U.S. is also worried about the cyber activities of China, North Korea and Iran.Coats said the executive order directs intelligence agencies to determine whether an individual, entity or country has inter-fered in a U.S. election and, if so, turn the information over to the attorney general and Department of Homeland Security. He said the order also directs intelli-gence officials to conduct an assessment after elections to inform the public about what might have occurred.This clearly is a process put in place to try to assure that we are doing every pos-sible thing we can, first of all, to prevent any interfer-ence with our elections, to report on anything we see between now and the election, but then to do a full assessment after the elec-tion to assure the American people just exactly what may have happened or may not have happened,Ž Coats said.Trump has drawn widespread criticism for not taking threats to the U.S. electoral system seriously enough, particularly Rus-sian interference in the 2016 presidential race.At a July 16 news confer-ence in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump was asked if he would denounce what happened in 2016 and warn Putin never to do it again. Trump did not directly answer the question. Instead, he delivered a ram-bling response, including demands for investigation of Hillary Clintons email server and his description of Putins extremely strong and powerfulŽ denial of meddling. That drew out-rage from both Republican and Democrats.Trump has pushed back, saying that no other Ameri-can president has been as tough on Russia. He has cited U.S. sanctions and the expulsion of alleged Russian spies from the U.S.Trump OKs sanctions for those who meddle in electionsPresident Donald Trump talks about Hurricane Florence after a brie“ ng Tuesday in the Oval Of“ ce of the White House in Washington. [SUSAN WALSH/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]By Matthew PerroneThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ U.S. health officials are sounding the alarm about rising teen-age use of e-cigarettes, calling the problem an epidemicŽ and ordering manufacturers to reverse the trend or risk having their flavored vaping products pulled from the market. The warning from the Food and Drug Administration on Wednesday cited recent data that points to a sharp increase in underage use of the handheld nicotine products, including Juul and others. It marks a shift in the agen-cys tone on e-cigarettes. Since last year, FDA commis-sioner Scott Gottlieb and other federal officials have discussed e-cigarettes as a potential tool to ween adult smokers off cig-arettes, although that benefit hasnt been proven.But Gottlieb said in an address at FDA headquarters that he failed to predict the current epidemic of addictionŽ among youth, mainly driven by flavored products.The disturbing and accel-erating trajectory of use were seeing in youth and the result-ing path to addiction must end,Ž Gottlieb told agency staffers and reporters. Its simply not tolerable.ŽE-cigarettes are vaporemitting devices that have grown into a multi-billion dollar industry in the U.S. despite little research on their long-term effects, including whether they are helpful in helping smokers quit. Theyre generally considered a less dangerous alternative to regular cigarettes. But health officials have warned nicotine in e-cigarettes is harmful to developing brains.They typically contain nico-tine, and sometimes flavorings like fruit, mint or chocolate.Health advocates have wor-ried about the popularity of vaping products among kids and the potential impact on smoking rates in the future. A government-commissioned report in January found substantial evidenceŽ that young people who use e-cig-arettes are more likely to try cigarettes.Gottlieb cited unreleased federal data and research that he says will be made public in coming months.Calling teen vaping epidemic, o cials mull avor ban By Lindsay WhitehurstThe Associated PressSALT LAKE CITY „ A strange thing happened after Neil Armstrong and the Apollo 11 crew returned from the moon with lunar rocks: Many of the mementos given to every U.S. state vanished. Now, after years of sleuthing, a former NASA investigator is closing in on his goal of locat-ing the whereabouts of all 50.In recent weeks, two of the rocks that disappeared after the 1969 mission were located in Louisiana and Utah, leaving only New York and Delaware with unaccounted-for souvenirs.Attorney and moon rock hunter Joseph Gutheinz says it blows his mind,Ž that the rocks were not carefully chronicled and saved by some of the states that received them. But he is hopeful the last two can be located before the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission next summer.Its a tangible piece of history,Ž he said. Neil Arm-strongs first mission ... was to reach down and grab some rocks and dust in case they needed to make an emergency takeoff.ŽPresident Richard Nixons administration presented the tiny lunar samples to all 50 states and 135 countries, but few were officially recorded and most disappeared, Gutheinz said.Each state got a tiny sample encased in acrylic and mounted on a wooden plaque, along with the state flag. Some were placed in museums, while others went on display in state capitols. But almost no state entered them into archival records, and Gutheinz said many lost track of them.When Gutheinz started leading the effort to find them in 2002, he estimates 40 states had lost track of the rocks.I think part of it was, we honestly believed that going back to the moon was going to be a regular occurrence,Ž Gutheinz said.But there were only five more journeys before the last manned moon landing, Apollo 17, in 1972.Of the Apollo 11 rocks given to other countries, about 70 percent remain unaccounted for, he said.The U.S. government also sent out a second set of good-will moon rocks to the states and other nations after the Apollo 17 mission, and many of those are missing as well, he said.NASA did not track their whereabouts after giving them to the Nixon administration for distribution, said chief historian Bill Barry, but added the space agency would be happy to see them located.Gutheinz began his career as an investigator for NASA, where he found illicit sellers asking millions for rocks on the black market. Authentic moon rocks are considered national treasures and cannot legally be sold in the U.S., he said.He became aware while at NASA that the gifts to the states were missing, but only began his hunt after leaving the agency.Now a lawyer in the Hous-ton area, hes also a college instructor whos enlisted the help of his students. The record their findings of the whereabouts of the discovered moon gems in a database.Many of the Apollo 11 rocks have turned up in some unexpected places: with ex-governors in West Virginia and Colorado, in a military-artifact storage building in Minnesota and with a former crab boat captain from TVs Deadliest CatchŽ in Alaska.Moon rock hunter closes in on nding missing stonesThis Wednesday photo shows moon rocks encased in acrylic and mounted on a wooden plaque at the Clark Planetarium in Salt Lake City. A former NASA investigator who has spent more than a decade tracking missing moon rocks is closing in on his goal of “ nding all 50 lunar samples gifted to U.S. states after Neil Armstrongs “ rst steps on the moon.

It will include a Mariott hotel, assisted living complex, medical offices, apartments and retail space.The project is next door to the Lake Port Square retire-ment community. The investors, mostly doc-tors, were attracted in part by the improvements being done at Leesburg Regional Medical Center, said Tony Benge of Benge Development.LRMC this week had ribbon-cutting ceremonies its $27 million, 24-bed addition of emergency room beds. 100-acre Silver Lake Club OKd by cityCity commissioners Monday approved on second and final reading a gated, sin-gle-family home community on the 100-acre site that once was the Silver Lake Country Club.Commissioners OKd Rich-ard Wohlfarths plans for 233 homes, with an entry point on Morningside Drive. It will be called Silver Lake Club.A previous developers plans called for 82 townhouses in the mix, but that concept was ditched, and more green space was added.Wohlfarth said the homes should be in the $250,000 to $350,000 range. Report: Father and son brawl over pot stashIf smoking pot is supposed to make you mellow, no one told Glenn Stambaugh and his son, Glenn Jr.According to police, the two men got into a brawl because dad wouldnt let his son smoke some of his stash before head-ing to work Tuesday. When sheriffs deputies got to the Rancho Drive home in Leesburg about 7 a.m. Tuesday, they found both men with abrasions, bite marks and scratches. The younger Stam-baugh, who is 24, told deputies his father agreed to let him smoke a bowlŽ of his marijuana before work but when he went into the fathers room, the elder Stambaugh became irate and began hitting him.The elder Stambaugh, 54, said the fight broke out because his son entered his room uninvited and tried to steal some of his pot. Both admitted that during the ensuing fight, punches were thrown, along with a coffee cup and a table, and the father was bitten.Because deputies couldnt determine who was the aggressor, both men were charged with simple battery.TAVARESMan hit with more charges over chaseA man jailed since late August following a wild chase that damaged a patrol car and wrecked the car of an innocent passerby has been hit with additional charges in the incident.It wasnt surprising that Darius Young, 31, fled from police Aug. 22. According to an arrest report, his license has been suspended nine times, he has two convictions for driving without a license and he was carrying a gun and marijuana in the car.What surprised officers was how desperate Young seemed to get away. The chase started when Youngs Ford Mustang sped away from a Tavares police detective on State Road 19, then headed south on U.S. Highway 441. At one point, Young tried to turn onto Dora Avenue but spun around in the median, then accelerated and rammed the patrol car that was following him, the report states.By Jim TurnerNews Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ Florida tourism is on pace to set an annual record, with an estimated 65.5 million people traveling to the state during the first half of the year, according to numbers released Wednesday.The tourism-marketing agency Visit Florida estimated that tourism during the first six months of 2018 was up 5.9 percent from the same period in 2017.Gov.

EBENHACK, FILE] Staff ReportSORRENTO „ A security guard decked out in tactical clothing and driving a truck equipped with law enforcement-type gear was arrested Tuesday for conducting a traffic stop on another driver. According to an arrest report, sheriff's dispatchers received a call about 10 p.m. Tuesday about a reckless driver traveling west on State Road 46 in Sorrento. Deputies responded to the area and found two cars pulled over on the side of the road. One was a Mazda passenger car and the other was a white pickup truck with flashing LED lights, a spot-light and a police-style push bumper.The driver of the Mazda told deputies that he had been driving on SR 46 in Seminole County and had passed the truck, but then the truck sped up and began tailgating him. He tried to put distance between himself and the truck, but the truck continued to pursue him and finally activated its blinking lights and pulled him over near the Mt. Plymouth Fire Station in Sorrento.Deputies then spoke to the driver of the truck, Jonathan Shaddix of Apopka, who was outfitted in khaki clothing and a tactical vest with a badge and was wearing a gun belt with a pepper ball gun. Shaddix reportedly told dep-uties he pulled over the other driver because the man was driving recklessly and he feared for the safety of other motorists. He said he worked as a security guard at an apartment complex in Tampa and the truck was his personal vehicle.According to the report, dep-uties ran a criminal history check and discovered that Shaddix had been arrested by Orlando Police in 2016 for impersonating a cop.He was charged with imper-sonating a law enforcement officer and booked into the Lake County Jail.Fake cop faces real charges in Sorrento incidentShaddix By Jim SaundersNews Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ Gov. Rick Scott on Tuesday started what will be a closely watched process to replace three Florida Supreme Court justices who will retire in January, with the appointments possibly leading to a major ideological shift on the court.Scott said he asked the Supreme Court Judicial Nominating Commission to begin a process that includes accepting and reviewing applications, interviewing candidates and making nom-inations for appointment.The process will lead to replacements for longtime justices Barbara Pariente, R. Fred Lewis and Peggy Quince, who are required to leave the court in January because of reaching a man-datory retirement age.Appointments of Supreme Court justices are always important, but Pariente, Lewis and Quince„ along with Justice Jorge Labarga„ are widely considered a left-leaning majority on the seven-member court. That has led to the possibil-ity that their replacements could spur a rightward shift of the court.As a sign of that, a legal debate emerged last year about whether Scott, who will also leave office in January, should have the Scott begins process to replace 3 retiring justices An artists rendering shows the proposed Ski Beach Bar and Grill at Venetian Gardens. [CITY OF LEESBURG] By Frank Stanfieldfrankstanfield@daily commercial.comLEESBURG „ Close your eyes and you can almost imagine hearing a band play-ing Jimmy Buffet tunes and smell fresh shrimp being placed on tables overlook-ing Lake Griffin.Before too long, the day-dream will become a reality.On Monday, however, Leesburg city commission-ers postponed approving the site plans for a restaurant at Venetian Gardens.Essentially, they liked the plan,Ž said City Manager Al Minner. However, commissioners wanted to take another look at boat slip and dock plans. Some will be built by the developer, some by the city.Hopefully, it will come up by the next commission meeting,Ž he said.The city already drafted a 20-year lease with Thad Boyd III of Ocala for $20,000 per year for an 8,000-square-foot restaurant.There will be about 2,000 square feet of deck, some of which will extend out over a cove. The restaurant will be casual, family fare, with live music and a banquet room.It might be hard to visualize now, because bulldozers and dump trucks now rumble over the jumble of what used to be the citys swimming pool and community building. A new pool will be built somewhere between the Susan Street recreation complex and the Dabney pool on Griffin Road. A new, $3.5 million community building is going up at Venetian Gardens.The city has made other improvements, including a new playground and splash pad at nearby Rogers Park, and will be building a new boat ramp at Ski Beach, where parking and other improvements are being made. The new community building is scheduled to be completed byJuly 4. Because of all the construction, some of the restaurant work cannot begin until at least some that work is finished.Well do a huge lunch business here because the hospitals a half mile away, theyre getting ready to build a new Marriottƒ,Ž Boyd said at community building groundbreaking ceremony in July. He also noted that downtown is just a half mile away. The city is looking for ways to link the revitalized downtown with the park.The restaurant will be loosely patterned after the successful Eatons Beach on the north shore of Lake Weir in neighboring Marion County. Eatons Beach is a relaxed beach bar and restaurant with a white sand beach and hundreds of feet of dock where boaters moor to come in off the lake for a bite and a beer.Venetian eatery plans taking shapeLeesburg Commission expected to approve plans for waterfront dining soonPlans for the new community center were on display on July 24, 2018, at a ground-breaking ceremony at Venetian Gardens in Leesburg.

Scott, who is running for the U.S. Senate, chairs the Enterprise Florida board but was campaign-ing Wednesday morning in Ocala.Visit Florida initially estimated the 2017 tour-ism total at 116.5 million but has adjusted the estimate to 118.5 million. The tourism industry was affected in 2017 by Hurricane Irma, which closed the Florida Keys for nearly a month after hitting the state last September.The public-private Visit Florida noted that preliminary estimates are made 45 days after the end of each calendar quarter and that final estimates are issued after additional data come in regarding hotel-room stays and airport use.In a prepared statement, Visit Florida President and CEO Ken Lawson credited his agencys tremendous momentumŽ to cutting edge marketing programs that highlight the diversity of our state.Ž This years state budget includes $76 million for Visit Florida to conduct marketing, matching last years funding.In August, Visit Florida announced the use of $500,000 on a pair of programs to help market areas „ Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Sarasota, Manatee, Hillsborough and Pinellas counties „ suffering from an outbreak of red tide. One of the programs set up a six-month complimentaryŽ marketing partnership with Visit Florida, while the other will require counties to outline how they will market themselves as part of an application for funding. The new numbers show increases in domestic tourists, while there was little change in overseas travel.For the second quarter of 2018, domestic visits were up 7.1 percent from the same period in 2017, accounting for 28.3 million tourists. At the same time, visitors from Canada grew by 1.3 percent.Florida boosted its marketing directed at Canadians from $1 million to $1.8 million last year, after Lawson acknowledged the state had taken the nations northern neighbor for granted.Meanwhile, the second-quarter estimates show Florida attracted 2.6 million overseas visi-tors, about the same from a year earlier. TOURISMFrom Page A3 BRIEFSFrom Page A3authority to appoint the new justices or whether that power should go to his successor. Scott, a Republican, has appointed one justice, Alan Lawson, who is gen-erally aligned with what is viewed as the conserva-tive minority on the court.Scott has argued that he has the authority to appoint the new justices, but the League of Women Voters of Florida and Common Cause filed a case last year arguing that Scotts successor should make the picks. The Supreme Court dismissed the case in December, saying the issue wasnt ripeŽ for consideration because Scott had not acted on the appointments. But the dismissal of the case does not preclude another challenge to Scotts position that he has the authority to make the appointments.In the announcement Tuesday, Scotts office said he would invite the governor-elect to interview the court nominees after the general election. The governors office pointed to an expectationŽ that Scott and his successor would be able to agree on appointments.If that happens, it would follow the lead of outgoing Democratic Gov. Lawton Chiles and Republican Gov.-elect Jeb Bush in late 1998 agreeing to appoint Quince to the Supreme Court.The chances of reach-ing agreement, however, could hinge heavily on the outcome of the Nov. 6 gubernatorial election between Democrat Andrew Gillum and Republican Ron DeSantis. Gillum is running as a progressive Democrat and, if elected, might have a hard time reaching agreement with the con-servative Scott. The new governor will take office Jan. 8.The nine-member Judicial Nominating Commission will have 60 days„ expiring shortly after the election„ to nominate a list of three to six people for each court vacancy.To minimize or avoid any period of vacancy on the Supreme Court, the nominating process must begin well in advance of these vacancies,Ž Scott said in a prepared statement Tuesday. Beginning the process to fill these vacancies right now follows the practice of previous governors. Floridas Supreme Court is so important to Florid-ians, and we will work together to select the most qualified justices to faithfully serve our state.ŽThe state constitution requires justices to retire at age 70 or shortly after, depending on where they are in their terms. Along with the joint pick of Quince, Chiles appointed Pariente to the Supreme Court in 1997 and Lewis to the court in 1998.Chief Justice Charles Canady, Justice Ricky Polston and Labarga were appointed to the court by then-Republican Gov. Charlie Crist in 2008 and 2009. JUSTICESFrom Page A3Florida Supreme Court Justice Barbara J. Pariente speaks at the University of Florida Levin College of Law in Gainesville in 2012. [GAINESVILLE SUN FILE PHOTO] The Associated PressMillions of people in the path of Hurricane Florence are frantically preparing for a monster storm that's anticipated to make landfall sometime early Saturday morning. Residents in states from Virginia to Georgia „ especially those who live in floodprone areas or on the coast „ must decide whether to stay or go.For some, like the Rich-ards family in Virginia, the choice was easy. They have a month-old new-born, and they're headed to Michigan. For others, like Chris Pennington in South Carolina, the choice was less clear. So he decided to board his home's windows Wednesday, regardless.Here are some snap-shots of a region awaiting the hurricane: WAITING TO SEEChris Pennington was boarding up the win-dows of his Myrtle Beach house late Wednesday morning after seeing the latest National Hurricane Center forecast bringing Florence inland nearly over his home about a half-mile from the ocean.He planned to stay before and was still lean-ing that way, but said he will be checking the weather keenly for the next 24 hours."I have until Thursday afternoon to leave, I think," Pennington said. "In 12 or 18 hours, they may be saying different things all over again."Pennington said there are two big draws to staying: His wife can be available to help if needed at the local animal hospi-tal where she works and he doesn't have to wait to return home inside the evacuation zone."It's terrible trying to get back," Pennington said. SOLITUDE ON THE BEACHChris and Nicole Roland arrived for a week of vacation at North Myrtle Beach on Sunday. By Monday, a mandatory evacuation was ordered. But they looked at the forecast and decided it was safe to stay until after dark Wednesday as long as they boarded up their uncle's condominium.They have been rewarded with the rarest of luxuries on South Carolina's most popular beaches „ solitude."It's been really nice," Nicole Roland said. "Also, a little creepy. You feel like you should have already left."The Grand Strand around them resembled a ghost town. Only one person could be seen in the wide expanse of beach typically packed with people well into September. Tourism offi-cials estimate 18 million people visit the area each year. On Wednesday, all those restaurants, beach wear shops and mini golf courses were closed.Chris Roland planned to leave around midnight Wednesday to go back to Chillicothe, Ohio."I think we have time to lay out a little longer," he said.Forecasters said the heavy rains and winds should hold off until this afternoon. IN LUCK AT THE FUEL PUMPAt a Han-Dee Hugo's convenience store in Wilmington, North Car-olina, that had been out of gasoline, customers were waiting at the pumps when a tanker truck arrived to replenish the supply Wednesday.Sarah and Bryan Dank-anich were at a pump when the attendant pulled off a yellow bag saying it was out of service. Sarah Dankanich said she felt lucky they got there at the right time because gas availability has been hit or miss recently. "I put $1.19 of gas in my car on Monday and then the thing ran out," she said.This time, they were filling up the car as well as gas cans."We've made three trips to Home Depot," she said, pointing to the SUV with plywood sticking out the back.Asked if they are con-cerned about the forecast, she said: "We'll see. Our family thinks we are crazy."At a pump nearby, Wilmington resident Michael Wilson also was waiting for gas. He has been fortifying his house because of concerns about wind and rain."The biggest thing is you're always worried about yourself and friends and family „ and whether they'll have a place to come back to," he said. FRANTIC SCENE AT HOME DEPOTAt the nearby Home Depot in Wilmington, people were waiting in line for an hour or more to get lumber to board up their houses. At least one person was seen sprinting to get in line for supplies at the store expected to close later in the day.Mickey and Diane Manes were loading a half-dozen long plywood boards into his pickup for boarding up the win-dows of their Wilmington home."I had to wait an hour in line to get this lumber," he said."We've been through about three hurricanes and we never boarded up the windows, but this time we are," he said.Asked why this time is different, he replied: "how fast the wind is."As they lifted the last two boards, another frantic customer ran up and asked if she could have their cart to go get in line. LEARNING FROM PAST EXPERIENCESeth Bazemore lives in one of the most floodprone neighborhoods in Norfolk, Virginia: A sliver of land known as Willoughby Spit that juts out into Chesapeake Bay like a thumb.Previous hurricanes have made him a survivor.On Wednesday, his brick house was lined with sandbags. Six bilge pumps sat inside on the ground floor, ready to push out the heavy rains and possible flood surge that the outer bands of Hurricane Florence are forecast to deliver."It looks like a ship moored to a pier," said the 62-year-old engineering manager at Newport News Shipbuilding, a nearby shipyard the builds aircraft carriers and submarines for the U.S. Navy. "I've learned from past experience," he said. "But believe you me, if I think it'll be worse and more than my setup can handle, we're out of here."Bazemore was feeling some relief Wednesday. The forecast showed that Florence may strike the East Coast even further south in the Carolinas and bring less rain and wind to Virginia. EVACUATING WITH A NEWBORNColin Richards was among the military personnel leaving coastal Virginia and North Car-olina ahead of Hurricane Florence. Many of the region's ships had already headed out to sea.The 28-year-old mostly was concerned for his daughter, who is one month and two days old."It's very simple," he said Wednesday morning. "We don't want to live without power with a newborn."Richards is a U.S. Navy diver based at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story in Vir-ginia Beach. He and his wife, Louilyn, live in the Norfolk neighborhood of Oceanview, which sits on the southern edge of the Chesapeake Bay.Florence is projected to strike the Carolinas. But heavy rains, winds and flooding are expected in Virginia."It's just not worth the risk," Richards said. "We've lost power fre-quently in the past."The family planned to head to Grand Rapids, Michigan, where Richards is from. He said many of his neighbors in Norfolk planned to wait out the storm with generators.To stay or go? Millions in hurricanes path must decideSarah Dankanich, right, removes an out of serviceŽ wrapper from a gas pump as her husband, Bryan Dankanich, left, prepares to pump gas in cans in advance of Hurricane Florence in Wilmington, N.C., on Wednesday.

A6 Thursday, September 13, 2018 |"Do you want to get hit with a train or do you want to get hit with a cement truck?" he said.Tropical storm-force winds extended 195 miles from Florence's center, and hurricane-force winds reached out 70 miles.The National Weather Service said 5.25 million people live in areas under hurricane warnings or watches, and 4.9 million live in places covered by tropical storm warnings or watches.At the White House, President Donald Trump both touted the government's readiness and urged people to get out of the way of Florence. "Don't play games with it. It's a big one," he said.As of 5 p.m., the storm was centered 385 miles southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina, moving at 16 mph. The hurricane center said Florence will approach the coast today and Friday and linger for a while before rolling ashore.As of Tuesday, more than 1.7 million people in the Carolinas and Vir-ginia were warned to clear out. Airlines had can-celed nearly 1,000 flights and counting through Friday. Home Depot and Lowe's activated emergency response centers to get generators, trash bags and bottled water to stores before and after the storm. The two hard-ware chains said they sent in a total of around 1,100 trucks.Duke Energy, the nation's No. 2 power company, said Florence could knock out electricity to three-quarters of its 4 million customers in the Carolinas, and outages could last for weeks. Workers are being brought in from the Mid-west and Florida to help in the storm's aftermath, it said.Boarding up his home in Myrtle Beach, Chris Pennington watched the forecasts and tried to decide when to evacuate."In 12 or 18 hours, they may be saying different things all over again," he said.Computer models of exactly what the storm might do varied, adding to the uncertainty. In contrast to the hurricane center's official track, a highly regarded Euro-pean model had the storm turning southward off the North Carolina coast and coming ashore near the Georgia-South Carolina line.Reacting to the possi-bility of a more southerly track, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal declared an emergency but did not immediately order any evacuations."I ask all Georgians to join me in praying for the safety of our people and all those in the path of Hurricane Florence," Deal said.The shift in the projected track spread concern to areas that once thought they were out of range. In South Carolina, close to the Georgia line, Beaufort County emergency chief Neil Baxley told residents they need to prepare again for the worst just in case."We've had our lessons. Now it might be time for the exam," Baxley said late in the morning.Their entire neighborhood evacuated in Wilmington, North Car-olina, David and Janelle Garrigus planned to ride out Florence at their daughter's one-bedroom apartment in Charlotte. Unsure of what they would find when they return home, the couple went shopping for a rec-reational vehicle."We're just trying to plan for the future here, not having a house for an extended period of time," David Garrigus said.Melody Rawson evacuated her first-floor apartment in Myrtle Beach and arrived at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia, to camp for free with three other adults, her disabled son, two dogs and a pet bird."We hope to have something left when we get home," she said.Forecasters worried the storm's damage will be all the worse if it lingers on the coast. The trend is "exceptionally bad news," said University of Miami hurricane researcher Brian McNoldy, since it "smears a landfall out over hundreds of miles of coastline, most notably the storm surge."With South Carolina's beach towns more in the bull's-eye because of the shifting forecast, Ohio vacationers Chris and Nicole Roland put off their departure from North Myrtle Beach to get the maximum amount of time on the sand. Most other beachgoers were long done."It's been really nice," Nicole Roland said. "Also, a little creepy. You feel like you should have already left." FLORENCEFrom Page A1that could fall, the more power outage s," National Hurricane Center Direc-tor Ken Graham said."This one really scares me," Graham said. "It's one of those situations where you're going to get heavy rain, cata-strophic, life-threatening storm surge, and also the winds."The National Hurricane Center on Tuesday afternoon increased its rainfall forecast to 15 to 25 inches of rain and 35 inches in isolated spots. But a computer simulation known as the European model predicts some places could get 45 inches. Sound unlikely? It's the same model that accurately predicted that last year's Hurricane Harvey, which also stalled over land, would drop 60 inches. "It does look a bit simi-lar to Harvey in a sense that it goes roaring into shore and then comes to a screeching stop," said MIT meteorology profes-sor and hurricane expert Kerry Emanuel. "This is not a pretty sight."Florence is unusual in that it is aiming at the Carolinas from the east. Usually storms come to the Carolinas and midAtlantic from the south „ and those usually curve safely out to sea.But a weather formation known as a high-pressure ridge is parked over the U.S. East coast, preventing Florence from doing the normal turn, said Univer-sity of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy.After Florence makes landfall, that ridge, now over Washington and New York, will move east „ but be replaced by another one forming over the Great Lakes that will likely keep the storm stuck, McNoldy said.Florence's path remains uncertain. It may move a little north into Virginia or a little south into South Carolina. But it's such a large storm that the rain will keep coming down in the region no matter where it wanders. And with the Appalachian Mountains to the west, there could be flooding and mudslides, experts worry.Florence's large size „ tropical storm force winds extend 170 miles from the center in all directions „ means its fury will arrive long before the center of the storm comes ashore, Graham said.Some of Florence's behavior, both what has been seen so far and what experts expect, show the influence of climate change.Its expected sluggishness is becoming more common, possibly a result of climate change, said National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration climate scientist and hurricane expert Jim Kossin.The ocean waters that Florence is travelling over are about 2.7 degrees warmer than normal, McNoldy said. Even normal water is warm enough for a storm to form there, but this adds to the storm's fuel and its rainfall. The air is holding 10 percent more water that can be dumped as rain.And the storm surge, which could be as much as 12 feet in some areas, will be on top of sea level rise from climate change. For example, the seas off of Wilmington, North Caro-lina, have risen 7.5 inches since 1935, according to NOAA.

BUDGETFrom Page A1"Since 1941, this base and its Marines have been postured to deal with crises at home and abroad and Hurricane Florence is no exception," said a message from Brig. Gen. Julian D. Alford.Some military families and others took to Camp Lejeune's Facebook page, venting fears and question-ing the base's plans.Nonessential personnel were released from duty at Lejeune and told they were free to relocate with their families to a site within a 500-mile radius of Jacksonville.Nat Fahy, a spokesman for the command, said the base was the safest place for anyone who had not evacuated already. Shelters on the base are expected to open early Wednesday, he said, and there will be a full complement of resources for those sheltering in place.Of the roughly 40,000 active duty troops at Lejeune, about three-quarters live off the base. Fahy did not know yet how many remained at the base.Evacuations were also underway at other bases across the region.Colin Richards, a Navy diver based at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story in Virginia Beach, was among the military p ersonnel leaving ahead of Hurricane Florence. The 28-year-old was mostly concerned for his daughter who is 1 month old."It's very simple," he said Wednesday morning. "We don't want to live without power with a newborn."Recruits were set to leave the Marine Corps' largest training installation on the East Coast on Tuesday, but those plans changed after South Carolina's governor rescinded an evacuation order as the storm's pro-jected path shifted.Some nonessential personnel and families evac-uated, but the bulk of the more than 8,000 Marines and support staff at Parris Island remain on the base.At Fort Bragg, an inland Army base in North Carolina, officials said only missionand emergencyessential personnel need to report to work Thursday and Friday and urged service members to contact their commanders for guidance. Officials also told The Fayetteville Observer earlier in the week that the majority of the 82nd Airborne Division's helicopter fleet was being evacuated to one of two sites in Georgia.In Virginia, Navy officials issued an emergency evacuation order Tuesday for active duty and civilian personnel, their families and reservists living in certain coastal areas for which the state had also ordered an evacuation.The move came after the Navy began sending dozens of its Virginia-based ships out to sea a day earlier. Accord-ing to the Navy, the final two ships „ the hospital ship USNS Comfort and the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln „ sailed out of Naval Station Norfolk on Tuesday. More than 30 ships have now moved to safer waters in the Atlantic Ocean.The U.S. Air Force and the Air National Guard also moved jets from Virginia's coast to Ohio.Officials from Joint Base Langley-Eustis in Hampton said the base's F-22 Rap-tors and T-38 Talon training jets were to begin flying out Tuesday for Rickenbacker Air National Guard Base in cen-tral Ohio.About 100 personnel were to travel to Ohio to support the jets.

PAGE 9 | Thursday, September 13, 2018 A9 A disturbing new possibility has emerged to explain the injuries suffered by 26 U.S. diplomats serving in Cuba in recent years, and one in China. The diplomats reported symptoms such as hearing loss, dizziness, tinnitus, visual difficulties, headaches, fatigue, and cognitive, balance and sleeping difficulties. The New York Times, quoting medical experts, suggested in an article last Sunday that the illnesses could have been caused by the use of invisible microwave beams aimed at the diplomats. Previously, there had been speculation about the use of some kind of sonicŽ or acoustic weapon those affected recalled hearing noises, such as a chirping. But the Times quoted experts as suggesting the sounds could have been caused by a phenomenon in which microwaves can delude the human brain into hearing sounds. This is not confirmed; other experts say microwaves could not be the cause. Either way, the impact has been health damage in the form of brain injury. Who did this? Cuba has denied involvement and says it does not know who is responsible. A Cuban scientist has claimed it might be psychological contagionŽ among the U.S. diplomats. The FBI has investigated, but the U.S. government has not officially accused anyone. It seems improbable that Cuba, with its extensive police-state surveillance, could fail to know what is going on. What would be the motive? The attacks occurred after the United States and Cuba restored diplomatic relations in 2015 and could have been an attempt to disrupt that rapprochement. To some extent, it did cause a setback, with the United States pulling back nonessential personnel and family members, about 60 percent of the U.S. Embassy staff. Ral Castro, then president and still a powerful figure, carried out the normalization, so presumably he did not condone this. But is there a rogue faction in Cuba trying to harm Americans? Or could a third party be staging the attacks? In Moscow during the Cold War, the Soviet Union bombarded the U.S. Embassy with microwave beams, perhaps for espionage. From 1953 to May 1975, the beams were emitted from a source in an apartment building some 330 feet west of the embassy, with highest intensities between the third and eighth floors. A second source from the south was detected after that, and in February 1976, screens were put on the windows to reduce the exposure of people inside. Russia might have a motive in the latest Cuba attacks: to spoil the rapprochement with Washington and thus open the way to closer ties with Moscow. But such a microwave weapon would require a bulky apparatus and relatively close proximity to the targets, who were in different locations. Could that be done clandestinely? And the motive in China is certainly not clear. Still, the microwave explanation has again raised a question about whether the United States has discovered more than is being said about the perpetrators. If there are known culprits, they should be identified and held to account. The Washington PostANOTHER OPINIONA literal secret weapon ANOTHER OPINION Enough with division, race baiting and lies We, the people, voted in Donald Trump as president to clean up Washington, secure our borders, enforce our laws and get the economy back on track. He has done a great job on all of his campaign promises to the American voters. To think that we have a political party opposing the will of the people and a media in this country backing them up, is unconscionable. By now, most of you have seen the three photos circulating around the internet showing a community agitator handing cash to a woman in a black and white dress. The following two pictures show this same woman being led out of the Senate by security and then in Senator Schumers office. When all the Democrats have is to use Soros, Styers and Bloombergs money to pay protesters to resist the will of the American people, we the people are winning. Further, if the Trump aides actually thwarted the president as Bob Woodward (a CNN lackey and Trump hater) said they did, they should be charged with treason. Enough of this division, race baiting and lies.James Russell, Mount DoraLetter writer reminds me why I resist To Mr. John Cohn, thank you for your opposing opinion on Sept. 2, 2018, Writer needs to adjust to the reality on this planet.Ž In my reality, if you judge a person solely on race, you falter as an American. Those who have no difficulty swallowing racist rally scraps of raw meatŽ will no doubt continue voting foolishly and nonsensically the provided propaganda policies that are good for Rupert Murdochs financial bottom-line. And those that help build and support, through blind loyalty, a system that legitimizes absurd levels of corruption are permitting an extensive upper-level governmental administrative organized crime ring. As for religion, I was baptized and had a Christian upbringing „ more of a good newsŽ New Testament-based Sunday service, Sunday school, choir, vacation Bible school, youth group and many wonderful church camp summers. Oh, and by the way, in my opinion, the notion that Donald Trump personifies the Biblical account of Cyrus the Great, King of Persia (Iran today), could only possibly be seen in the same context of monstrous actions that Adolph Hitler embodied with carnal pursuits of extreme egotism and evil itself. Again, thank you Mr. Cohn for your opinion. I live for letters like yours. They are a good reminder of why I resist and why I believe that the corrupt, racist, divide and conquer un-American policies of the Trump/Pence Administration keeps me in the fight.Vicki Bush, Lady Lake Bumper stickers, buttons and hats for Democrats I recall reading several times over the past few years that the Democrats were in search of a slogan that would fit onto a bumper sticker, button or hat that could rival Mr. Trumps infamous Make America Great Again.Ž Today, as I watched C-Spans live coverage of Senator McCains funeral, the words of a Hispanic leader and Vice President Biden inspired me to write down these three suggestions: € We Leave No One BehindŽ € Make America Better TogetherŽ € All Of Us Make America GreatŽWilliam C Johnson, Fruitland ParkLETTERS TO THE EDITOR OPINIONSteve Skaggs | Publisher Tom McNiff | Executive Editor Whitney Lehnecker | Digital Editor, Lifestyles Editor Tom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 tom.mcniff@dailycommercial.comHe's back! President Obama has emerged from his supposed cloistered life to attack President Trump. Obama broke with a tradition apparently only modern Republican ex-presidents follow, which is not to speak ill of your successor. Obama, who reportedly has been running his "Organizing for America" operation, along with his White House aide Valerie Jarrett from his expensive home in a Washington neighborhood, spoke to a group of University of Illinois students last Friday, claiming it was his policies, not those of President Trump, that have produced the current economic boom. "When you hear how great the economy's doing right now, let's just remember when this recovery started," Obama said. But during the Obama administration, the Gross Domestic Product never exceeded 3 percent annually. Obama said the days of strong economic growth were behind us, that many manufacturing jobs were lost and not returning and that candidate Trump didn't have a "magic wand" to fix the economy. But in the second quarter of this year, economic growth exceeded 4 percent and manufacturing jobs are making a comeback. By the time Obama left office, the unemployment rate had declined from a high approaching 8 percent at the start of his administration to just under 5 percent, but was beginning to tick back upward, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In less than two years of the Trump administration, the nation has effectively gained full employment (3.9 percent unemployment rate) with minority unemployment reaching record lows. Obama should receive some credit for the way his administration helped the country after the 2007 recession, but not all the credit he now claims for himself. Hourly earnings, which were largely stagnant during the Obama years, have increased an average 2.9 percent over the last year. Obama's speech was part of a carefully coordinated strategy to win back a House majority for Democrats. This has included demonstrators at the hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh; the Bob Woodward book "Fear" and the daily and sometimes hourly torrent of anti-Trump invective from the major media, which see impeachment as their only hope of returning the establishment to power. Trump did himself a favor by not responding to Obama's speech in kind. Instead of taking to Twitter for a blistering attack, he joked that Obama's speech put him to sleep. The president did something last week I have long urged him to do. Statistics are dry. Show people who have jobs they couldn't find during the Obama years. In a speech in North Dakota, the president brought a man onstage who thanked him for his economic policies that allowed the man to go back to work. Here's how The Daily Caller reported the story: "The man told a story about the coal industry under Obama and how 'the coal industry absolutely had the boot of government on its throat.' "'Many, many jobs were lost,' the coal miner said, 'and many towns were destroyed by this. It was just a horrible thing. Horrible suffering happened in this country. Really for made-up reasons, I think. And what your administration does „ has done „ is bringing us back to life.'" The audience cheered. This is the way to counter the resistance. Keep showcasing people who were unemployed during the Obama years, but now have jobs. The president should then say if Democrats win a congressional majority they will stifle his successes and try to return to the failed policies of the past. That objective is what Obama meant in his speech. It is the opposite strategy, one that is working, that President Trump stressed in his. A show and tell approach can work against the tidal wave of opposition coming from the left. Flesh and blood are more powerful than ink and paper and TV news.

The Yellow Jacket Nation remembers Johnson as not just a double-double machine on the court, but also in her everyday life.Thats why her death late Friday night in a car accident on Interstate 75 near Gainesville has left so many people stunned in Lake and Sumter counties.And, its also the reason the seniors at Leesburg „ many of whom walked the halls with Johnson less than two years ago „ have planned a silent and solemn tr ibute to the Yellow Jacket graduate.Leesburgs Class of 2019 is asking that all Leesburg stu-dents wear orange and/or black „ the sc hools colors „ on Friday in memory of Johnson. In addition, Johnsons coaches during her time at Leesburg „ Mark Oates and Marlyn Bryant „ are encouraging all former lady Jackets to also wear orange and black.During her four year playing career at Leesburg, Johnson played in 113 games and scored 1,461 points „ an average of 12.9 points per game. She also grabbed 1,161 rebounds in her prep career „ an average of 10.3 per game.Johnsons play earned her a scholarship to Gulf Coast State College in Panama City. As a freshman with the Commodores, Johnson played in 30 games and averaged 2.7 points and 2.7 rebounds.

[DAILY COMMERCIAL FILE] By Doug FergusonThe Associated PressNEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. „ Justin Rose would like to have changed how he reached No. 1 in the world. But not when.Rose felt emotionally conflicted when the BMW Championship ended in a light rain at Aronimink Golf Club. He was going for his third title in the Philadelphia area, including the U.S. Open he won at Merion five years ago. He hit what he thought was one of the better putts he had ever struck under pressure, a 15-footer for par in regulation, only to see it spin hard around the back edge of the cup.And then in a playoff, his 5-foot par putt missed to the left, making Keegan Bradley a winner for the first time in six years.The consolation prize was obvious: Rose replaced Dustin Johnson at No. 1 in the world.In the moment, were all about trying to win a golf tournament,Ž Rose said. But give me half an hour maybe, and I might be able to say I really enjoyed it.ŽReflection came much sooner in the form of a tweet:We did it Dad.... World Number 1. Thank you so much to my family, friends & everybody that has helped me achieve this incredible goal.ŽThe words were accompanied by a photo of Rose from that Sunday afternoon at Merion when he hit all the right shots and became a major champion. He is shown pointing to the sky to acknowledge his father, Ken, who died of leukemia in Sep-tember 2002.The rise of Justin Rose to No. 1 in the world By Adam KilgoreWashington PostEarly Sunday afternoon, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady took the field at Gillette Stadium to begin his 19th season in the NFL.

PAGE 13 | Thursday, September 13, 2018 B3Bennett, a 2017 graduate of Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, is the first football alum from the school to sign a professional contract. At Mercer he made 33 starts and played in 44 games with the Bears, an NCAA Division I Football Cham-pionship Subdivision program.As a senior, he set a single-season record with 110 tack les, earning Bennett All-Southern Conference First Team honors. He was also a team captain as a senior.During his career with the Bears, Bennett was involved in 222 tackles, including 30 tackles for loss. He forced three fum-bles and recovered six, and intercepted four passes.As a senior, Bennett recorded 17 tackles against Furman, and had 16 against Western Carolina and The Citadel. He had nine tack-les and a quarterback sack against Auburn and tallied eight stops against Alabama in his final college game.At Leesburg, Bennett played for coach Randy Trivers and earned AllState Third Team honors as a senior in 2013. That year, he helped the Yellow Jackets to an 8-4 record and the Class 6A-District 10 championship.Bennett graduated from Mercer in 2017 with a 3.1 grade point average and a bachelors degree in finance. FA-Leesburg volleyball o to fast startDespite dropping its first match of the season on Tuesday against Winter Garden Foundation Academy, the First Academy of Leesburg vol-leyball team has quietly been putting together one of the areas top seasons.Prior to the 3-2 loss to against the Lions, First Academy had not been extended beyond four sets all season.The Eagles are 5-1 this season, with wins against Clermont Real Life Chris-tian, Mount Dora Christian, Ocoee Legacy, Orlando Central Florida Christian and Orlando Christian Prep. First Academy will face MDCA in a rematch between the longtime rivals at 6 p.m. today in First Academys Family Life Center.First Academy has been led by co-captains Kali Walker and Caroline Culbreath.Walker, a sophomore, has reached double figures in kills in each of the Eagles wins, with back-to-back 16-kill efforts in 3-1 wins against MDCA and Legacy. She also had 18 digs against Legacy.Culbreath had 12 kills against Legacy. She is among the teams leader in digs, along with Walker and Olivia Grizzard.Emily Han is the teams top ball-handler with more than 100 assists. Last season, First Acad-emy posted a 21-7 record and reached the Class 3A-Region 2 finals, before losing 3-2 to Tampa Bay HEAT. MVA girls cross country bests state powerhouseThe Montverde Academy girls cross country team has been making believers out of ma ny since finishing third at last years Class 2A state finals.Any remaining doubters mightve been swayed Saturday when the Eagles topped state powerhouse Winter Park at the Horse Park Invitational at Ocala-Florida Horse Park in Ocala.Paced by freshman Lily Henne, who won the individual competi-tion, Montverde Academy took the team title with 88 points. Winter Park, the defending Class 4A state champions, was second with 116 points, followed by Citrus Park Christian School in third with 130 points.Other local girls teams included: Lake Minneola (eighth place, 271 points), Tavares (17th, 433), MDCA (19th, 520), and Leesburg (24th, 595).Henne covered the five-kilometer distance in 18 minutes, 34.55 seconds. She was more than 13 seconds ahead of Winter Springs Elayna Bahr, who finished second with a time of 18:47.56.Other top local finishers included Lake Minneolas Cadi Rowe, who was fourth with a time of 18:57.46. Montverde Academy soph-omore Kendyl Cardwell was ninth at 19:18.50.Among the boys, Jacksonville Bolles picked up the win with 32 points. Tavares was 23rd with 620 points, followed by Mont-verde Academy (26th, 686), Leesburg (28th, 709) and Eustis (31st, 1,019). Jack-sonville Bolles won the boys team title with 32 points.Leesburgs William Troupe recorded the top finish for an area boys runner, stopping the clock in 17:25.33 to finish in 37th place. NOTEBOOKFrom Page B1The day Rose became No. 1 in the world was the anniversary of his death, a day the son never forgets.No, he didnt get the trophy awarded after four rounds.Rose got a title earned over the last two years by a mathematical formula, and over the last 20 years by sheer determination.Its boyhood dreams, know what I mean?Ž Rose said. Today is all about the process, and there will be next week to win tournaments. But to get to world No. 1 is unbelievable. Its some-thing I can say now in my career Ive been the best player in the world. Ive been to the top of the game.Ž And what a trip.He was a 17-year-old amateur at Royal Birkdale in 1998 who holed out for par on the f inal hole to tie for fourth, soaking up a celebration that suggested golf could only get sweeter.And then it went sour over the next year when he turned pro and missed 21 consecutive cuts on the European Tour.It took him nearly four years before he won for the first time in Europe. He went 12 years before winning on the PGA Tour, rallying from four shots behind to win the Memorial and get that handshake with Jack Nicklaus. He won the U.S. Open in 2013 by denying Phil Mickelson. He added precious gold to the collection of silver trophies when he won in golfs return to the Olympics in 2016.All he won Monday at Aronimink was a designation that cant be taken away.Rose is the 22nd player to reach No. 1 in a world ranking that began in 1986. He is the fourth player from England, joining Luke Donald, Lee Westwood and Nick Faldo. Argue about the math, but not the results. In the last year, Rose has four victories, including a World Golf Champion-ship, and four runner-up finishes.Sure, its awkward to celebrate one title right after losing another. Its not unusual, though. ROSEFrom Page B1Leesburgs Keshawn Johnson (20) makes a free throw during a regional quarter“ nal game against Palm Bay in Leesburg on Feb. 9, 2017. [DAILY COMMERCIAL FILE] discipline and getting out of their gaps; linemen, linebackers and defensive backs all missing tackles; the defensive ends and outside linebackers giving up the edge and letting UK quarterback Terry Wilson scramble for big plays. The result was 175 yards rushing on 27 carries for Benny Snell Jr., 105 on 10 carries for Wilson and 23 on four carries for Asim Rose.It all adds up to 303 yards rushing and 7.4 yards a carry.By UFs high defensive standards, giving up 100 yards rushing is poor, 200 is unacceptable and 303, well, that is a downright disaster.We always talk about playing to a standard and playing to an identity. We didnt do that,Ž Grantham said. We always talk about stopping the run and affecting the quarterback. We didnt do either one and didnt give ourselves a chance to win because of that.The biggest thing is just looking for solutions, and the thing with that is theres a certain physical-ity youve got to play with up front. Youve got to be able to set the edge. Youve got to be able to strike blockers.ŽWhen the Gators werent getting physically overpowered by a stronger UK front, mental errors were taking them out of position to make plays. Linemen got out of their gaps, allowing Snell to cut back and find open-ings. And the edge players failed to contain Wilson in the pocket when he started to scramble around, letting him break outside to an open field.Youve got to trust that, Im going to stay in my gap and the other guys going to be in his gap,  Grantham said. When you start free-lancing, you create seams. Thats something weve got to work on as we move forward.It really gets down to securing your gap and doing what youre supposed to do and making sure that youre where you need to be. Thats the biggest thing.Hey, look, if somebody hits a play, they hit a play. But the key thing is to play in a consistent basis. Youve got to play consistently four quarters. Youve got to play with effort and energy, but youve also got to be able to do things on a consistent basis.ŽIn the 27-16 loss, the UF defensive front wasnt tough enough or strong enough to hang with the Wildcats. Thats a troubling sign, as the Gators prepare to enter the heart of their SEC schedule, where they will be facing some offensive fronts that are more physical than Kentuckys.Its an issue the Gators have started addressing on the practice field this week.UF coach Dan Mullen has said the Gators need to be tougher and more physical in practice, and thats been the approach.You practice,Ž Grantham said. You get better during practice. Youve got to continue to develop yourself and play with the effort and energy that we talk about. Then youll get better. Its really about finishing the play. Finish the play. Tackling, finish your job.I like our guys approach. We just have to keep working. Theres a fine line between being really good and not being where you want to be. Weve just got to continue to work to do the things that you have to do to be a good defense.ŽThe Gators certainly will be working on their tackling this week. They missed 20 tackles against Kentucky that led to 168 yards in UK gains.Its an issue that junior defensive back Chauncey Gardner-Johnson addressed with his teammates during Saturdays game.I spoke to the defense at halftime and at the end of the game,Ž he said. They came in here and slapped us in the mouth. Weve got to respond. As leaders of this team, weve got to go in and weve got to dial in and practice and do what we need to do because we cant change the outcome. Youve got to go in and get ready for this week.Ž GATORSFrom Page B1in other words, exactly what it has been hoping for „ and trying to engi-neer „ for the past two decades: a golden age, of sorts, of quarterback play.For 20 years, the NFL has passed rules changes designed to make play-ing quarterback safer and easier. It has banned late hits, high hits and low hits on quarterba cks, along with several types of hits on receivers. The effects of those changes, now that an era of quarterbacks has played an entire career under them, have become evident.Quarterbacks in their late 30s „ like Brady, Rivers and the New Orleans Saints Drew Brees „ arent aging out of the league at the same rate as their predecessors, or even declining in performance. As young quarterbacks come into the league, theyre adding to the pool of useful quarterbacks more often than theyre being forced to fill in. Good quarterbacks are being displaced, not replaced, and therefore are in deeper supply.Were essentially watching two or three mini-generations of quar-terbacks at the same time, all able to play at a high level based on health and conditions that make it easier to succeed. Old quarterbacks stay health-ier longer, and young quarterbacks can adapt to the league faster.In all hon estly, I dont think we would have pre-dicted the longevity some of these fellas have had,Ž said former NFL executive Bill Polian, a longtime member of the leagues competition committee. But clearly, clearly, we were trying to keep our quarterbacks upright and healthy as best we could.Ž NFLFrom Page B1Justin Rose “ nishes on the 18th in the second round of the BMW Championship at the Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pa., on Friday. Despite losing in a playoff, Rose moved up to No. 1 in the world.

Tune in online at w CUP STANDINGS WHATS ON TAP QUESTIONS & ATTITUDECompelling questions ... and maybe a few actual answers Is Kasey Kahne done, and how big of an issue is it?Kahne already announced this would be his last full-time Cup season, but then he skipped the Indy weekend after suffering dehydration during the previous weeks race at Darlington. I dont want to create any more damage to myself, to my body, until I understand it better,Ž he said last week. Hes lucky in a sense, because he has built the type of bankroll that allows him to walk away without “ nancial worries.Will dehydration join concussions as a modern issue?Anything is possible, but this seems like a caseby-case deal. Everyones body reacts differently to stressful conditions. But like the modern focus on concussions, it does make you wonder just how many guys, over the years, toughed it out when their bodies seriously needed a break. Back when men were men,Ž sure, but how many physical prices were paid in later life? Well never know.„ Ken Willis, ken.willis@news-jrnl.comWho might make a surprising run to the “ nale at Homestead? GODSPEAK: Give me Kyle Larson. Hes been over-driving his race cars all season. Maybe he will overachieve, too. KENS CALL: I think Erik Jones survives the “ rst two rounds and, with a little luck, is among the Final Four at Homestead.Which current non-playoff track would you like to see among the “ nal 10 races? GODSPEAK: Atlanta Motor Speedway and its old track surface might be a good “ t. It gives most drivers “ ts. KENS CALL: Daytonas 400miler, of course, because it would relieve us of that July weather.

Kyles championshipKyle Busch captured the NASCAR Cup Series regular-season title, 15 bonus points, and got a trophy. He was not happy “ nishing eighth at Indy. Ugly day,Ž Busch said before the award presentation. Thats not what we were hoping for; grand scheme, cool to get bonus points.Ž2. Late cautionsTwo cautions over the last 16 laps helped Brad Keselowski overtake Denny Hamlin for the win. Hamlin was not happy. He said the yellow ” ags were shown for meaningless guys who wrecked.Ž Hamlin got into the playoffs on points.3. Tough brakesIts rare to see multiple brakesystem failures, but Indy produced two that caused the yellow ” ag to come out of the holster. Martin Truex Jr. and Bubba Wallace each had brakes come apart. Truex maintained control of his car, but Wallace crashed hard into the outside wall.„ Godwin Kelly, godwin. kelly@news-jrnl.comKyle Busch, who drives the No. 18 Toyota, had a rough day at Indianapolis but earned NASCARs regular-season title.

JEFFREY EARNHARDT: Earnhardt got into Landon Cassill on Lap 154 (of 160), bringing out the “ nal yellow ” ag, which ultimately led to Hamlin losing the Brickyard 400. GODWIN KELLYS TAKE: Hamlin didnt call Earnhardt out by name but described him as one of those meaningless guysŽ who spoiled his day. On the “ nal restart, Hamlin was passed for the win by Brad Keselowski.1. Sweet 16The NASCAR Cup Series regular season ended a day late because of rain at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but produced a 16-driver playoff “ eld. The drivers going through are: Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Jr., Brad Keselowski, Clint Bowyer, Joey Logano, Kurt Busch, Chase Elliott, Ryan Blaney, Erik Jones, Austin Dillon, Kyle Larson, Denny Hamlin, Aric Almirola, Jimmie Johnson and Alex Bowman.2. Rising, fallingAfter winning back-to-back NASCAR crown jewelŽ events with the Southern 500 and Brickyard 400, Keselowski has suddenly emerged as a championship contender. Crew chief Paul Wolfe used pit strategy to help secure the wins. He (Wolfe) gave me the ball, and I had to make a play,Ž Keselowski said. Truex “ nished last at Indy. Hopefully well get this bad luck out of the way before the playoffs start next week,Ž he said.3. Stewarts fourOf all the teams in the NASCAR Cup Series, Stewart-Haas Racing has the edge as far as pure numbers. SHR saw all four of its drivers make the playoffs, led by Kevin Harvick, who has a serieshigh eight wins. As a team, SHR scooped up 11 regular-season victories. Almirola advanced into the playoffs on points. Joe Gibbs Racing and Hendrick Motorsports each pushed three drivers into the postseason.„ Godwin Kelly, godwin. kelly@news-jrnl.comBrad Keselowski will surge into the NASCAR playoffs after capping the regular season with two huge victories.

[DAILY COMMERCIAL FILE] LOCAL ENTERTAINMENT SCENEOn Tap this weekendSee TAP, C3By Ed Symkus More Content NowTheres never been an article in the title of a Predator film. Only Predator,Ž Predator 2,Ž and Predators.Ž (Sorry, the silly mashups with the Alien movies dont count.) So why is this sequel called THE Predator?Ž Simple: because its about one specific member of the armor-skinned creatures that makes its way to Earth. Well, an accurate telling of it would say that its about two of them ... and their space dogs.Ž But The PredatorsŽ just doesnt work. Besides, theres so much of more interest here than proper titles. Like, for instance, the fact that the film kicks off with a classic two-stories-at-once intro: Camouflaged military sharpshooters are about to blow away some nasty hostage-takers when an escape pod from a galactic ship, piloted by one of MOVIE REVIEWNewest Predator entry makes for a wild, funny, violent good timeWhen a young boy accidentally triggers the universes most lethal hunters return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race in The Predator.Ž [TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX] The PredatorŽ€ Written by Fred Dekker and Shane Black; directed by Shane Black € With Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Jacob Tremblay, Sterling K.

A taxi driver thinks he has the perfect set-up with two wives and two lives, but everything changes when it all falls apart. Also this week, the adult fairy tale Into the WoodsŽ plays at the Melon Patch in Leesburg, the spicy comedy The Full MontyŽ is at the State Theatre in Eustis and the highenergy song and dance production of Disneys Newsies: The MusicalŽ plays at the Moonlight Theatre in Clermont. Auditions continue Sunday and Monday for Disneys Mary PoppinsŽ upcoming at the IceHouse in Mount Dora. Run for Your WifeŽ The IceHouse production of the comedy Run for Your WifeŽ opens Friday and plays until Oct. 7 at the Sonnentag IceHouse Theatre in Mount Dora The play centers around a bigamist taxi driver whose carefully scheduled life falls apart when he has a traffic incident. He juggles his work shifts to alternate between his homes and marriages. One evening, a minor incident causes him to be taken to the hospital, where confusion over his identity and his street address causes his finely balanced lie to begin to unravel in hilarious fashion. The cast is led by Ashley Richards, as taxi driver John Smith, and John Crosby as the slacker neighbor, Stanley Gardner, who keeps making matters worse. Supporting performers include Rob Adams and Roy Hamlin as Detectives Troughton and Porterhouse, who are suspicious of the outrageous alibis. Marcie Schwalm and Jessica Hoehn (role-sharing on different weekends) play Johns first wife, Mary Smith, and Sandee Lester plays the second wife, Barbara Smith. Adrian LePeltier plays an upstairs neighbor, Bobby, who stumbles into the mayhem.

C2 Thursday, September 13, 2018 | MUSIC & BOOKSBy David MontgomeryThe Washington PostJoan Baez watched the mayor of Charleston, South Carolina, work himself to the point of tears. She is going to sing not just a song, she is going to sing . the song,Ž John Tecklenburg declared from a makeshift stage in a downtown park. This is a lady whos not just talked the talk and sang the songs of our life, but she has . .Ž and he kept on rhapsodizing until he got out of breath. She was there in 1963, and she is here with us today . Joan Baez!Ž Baez hugged him on the way to the microphone, where she said, I told him that was pretty good for a white guy.Ž At 77, she cant help letting a little air out of most attempts to glorify her. And yet here she was, doing again what is the essence of her legend: showing up where the action is, with a song and a faith that a song can make a difference. The occasion was a rally to mark the third anniversary of the massacre at nearby Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, where a white man killed nine AfricanAmerican congregants during a Bible study. Baez had come from Paris „ taking a break from her worldwide farewell tour, the last sustained series of concerts of her nearly sixdecade career. The song she would perform is called The President Sang Amazing Grace,Ž and it recounts how President Barack Obama spoke and sang „ at the funeral of the Rev. Clementa C. Pinckney, the churchs slain pastor. Zoe Mulford, an obscure folk singer three decades younger than Baez, wrote the piece. But Baez „ who has been lifting up others songs since she championed the first protest visions of a scruffy waif named Bob Dylan „ recorded the version that got peoples attention. Mulford was in the audience at the rally, slightly dazzled. I heard Joans voice for the first time in music class when I was 8 years old,Ž she told me. I was listening to her music when I was in my 20s and picking up a guitar and deciding what I wanted to sound like. She has been one of my heroes.Ž Baez strapped on a borrowed guitar. Her voice, an increasingly fragile instrument, felt tight from jet lag, she told me later. In the minutes before going onstage, she had tried loosening the voice and practicing on the unfamiliar guitar, but she wasnt satisfied. Masking her doubts behind a bright smile, she announced the song. Its the story of the day that the president came to try and console people,Ž she said. The words were not enough. So he sang instead.Ž As she fingerpicked the opening lick, I wondered how a simple song could live up to the emotions of the event „ grief, loss, hope. Local performers today had brought their beats and loops, their soundtracks and videos. And here was Baez with only a guitar. She sang a little huskily at first: A young man came to a house of prayer They did not ask what brought him there He was not friend, he was not kin But they opened the door and let him inŽ Many in the crowd were standing, staring intently as they took in the words. After three verses came the chorus, the voice strong now: But no words could say what must be said  For all the living and the dead So on that day and in that place The president sang Amazing Grace The president sang Amazing GraceŽ When she finished, the crowd whooped and cheered. It really touched my heart,Ž said Roberta Williams, 60, a substanceabuse specialist. It was just that effect it had the performance, the atmosphere, the cause.Ž Williams was accompanied by her daughter, Kris Bennett, 24; the motherhad been stunned to learn that the millennial knew who Joan Baez was. Bennett, who works at Z93 Jamz radio in Charleston and hosts a YouTube series on local hip-hop, told me she started following Baez on Instagram when she noticed the singer being tagged in videos posted by younger activists since President Trump was elected. She sees in Baez an elder who, in contrast to some, is like, I understand you guys, Im willing to help.Ž Of Baezs performance that day, she said: The song was really appropriate for everything thats happening right now. I think were at this point where enough is enough, and seeing someone from the civil rights movement, a white woman who actually stands, thats a big thing.Ž Saint JoanOn Baezs nal tour, irony-free mix of politics and song seems as urgent as everLegendary folk music artist Joan Baez, at her northern California home, is on her “ nal tour.

The amusing lesson: Dont try to pigeonhole this guy. The one-time glam rocker has dabbled in Americana, and on tour does a hilarious Dylan-style talking blues. Now hes into ear candy. Karma for CheapŽ is a 10-song pop potpourri heavy on hooks and memorable melodies, with pounding piano and plenty of air guitar invitations. Theres a slightly druggy haze to the whole thing and the album echoes classic rock, from ELO (The Rest Is Yet to ComeŽ) and The Traveling Wilburys (Heart Slows DownŽ) to Elliott Smith (Dream DreamerŽ) and Tom Petty (Set You FreeŽ). Bits of The Beatles abound. But theres nothing stale about the material because its so wellcrafted and joyfully performed by Tasjan and his touring band, which includes standout guitarist Brian Wright. It also helps that theres a topical bent to the lyrics, which stress the need to overcome the negativity of creepy times. This album should improve anyones world outlook, and it captures the considerable charms of Tasjans live performances, even without any New York Dolls covers.Good Karma: Engaging pop potpourri Karma for CheapAaron Lee Tasjan (New West) MUSIC REVIEW BOOK REVIEW By Douglass K. DanielThe Associated PressThe simplest avenue for beginning to understand filmmaker David Lynch might be found in a childhood friends observation: Davids always had a cheerful disposition and sunny personality, but hes always been attracted to dark things. Thats one of the mysteries of David.Ž Dark things abound in Lynchs signature films „ the grotesque infant in EraserheadŽ (1977), the disfigured adult in The Elephant ManŽ (1980), the violent and perverse Frank Booth in Blue VelvetŽ (1986) „ and in his first TV series, the offbeat murder mystery Twin PeaksŽ (1990-91). When his cheerful and sunny side shows itself, and thats not often, the result is The Straight StoryŽ (1999). Like a David Lynch film, the biography-memoir Room to DreamŽ is set in a world we recognize but one with a dreamy, compelling perspective at its core. Co-author and Lynch friend Kristine McKenna writes from interviews and other research in one chapter while the filmmakers own recollections of events follow in the next. Its a unique structure thats perfectly suited for a cheery fellow with dark fantasies. Lynch has always been drawn to art of some sort „ paint, film, video, music, sound design, photography, acting, even carpentry. Friends and colleagues say he is smart, nice, generous and outgoing „ and insist that he isnt weird. Curiously, Lynchs life lacks the elements of evil and tragedy and the bizarre found in his art. McKenna describes an all-American 1950s boyhood in the Northwest. Taking his turn, Lynch recalls an idyllic youth, too, but one with the occasional disturbing image „ like the night a nude and beaten woman stumbled down his street. (If youve seen Blue VelvetŽ youll recognize that childhood memory.) At one point Lynch writes: Almost everybody has a bunch of stuff swimming in them, and I dont think most people are aware of the dark parts of themselves. People trick themselves and we all think were pretty much OK and that others are at fault.ŽBook explores weird, wonderful lmmaker Room to DreamBy David Lynch and Kristine McKenna (Random House)

TAPFrom Page C1those visible/invisible violence-prone things comes roaring down from the skies. All hell, naturally, breaks loose, resulting in lead sniper Quinen McKenna (Boyd Holbrook) not only surviving the assault, but also making good use of a stolen invisibility tool. That mayhem switches over to one of a different sort, to bright (make that genius), geeky sixth grader Rory (Jacob Tremblay) „ whose last name is McKenna and, of course, is Quinens son „ being bullied at school. Then its right back to dad, whos in a pickle for not behaving in proper military manner, and ends up on a bus populated with other military troublemakers thats headed to the brig, or wherever the military sends guys who they deem to be loonies.Ž But wouldnt you know it „ that facility is in the same complex that houses Project Stargazer, where scientists have captured, sedated, and secured „ yeah, right! „ a Predator, and where brilliant evolutionary biologist Casey Bracket (Olivia Munn) has been brought to help figure out why the creature has some human DNA coursing through its veins. And so its time for a next serving of many things happening at once and for additional hell to break loose. That entails Rory getting an anonymous gift of some Predator gear and inadvertently sending out a beacon to any other Predators in the nearby universe; the sedatedŽ Predator waking up in the science facility and showing how distraught he is to be there by slicing through a gaggle of scientists; and Dr. Bracket first attempting to shoot down but then teaming up with those unruly prisoners. Under the slick and surefire direction of Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,Ž Iron Man 3,Ž The Nice GuysŽ), the film wastes no time putting together a mix of terrifically edited wild and furious action with some raunchy and sometimes grisly humor. Theres a great deal of cursing, and its very violent, but it smartly keeps the gore factor to a minimum. The reason it works, though, is due to another more prevalent mix, that of snappy dialogue, a story thats constantly moving forward, and across the board strong performances, some of which put a spotlight on the raucous camaraderie of the men on the bus, and others that make true leaders of the characters, most notably in the cases of Holbrook and Munn. If all of that isnt enough, the script also inserts a perfectly sensible reason for everything that happens in the film. Its a mystery throughout most of it, involving the plans and goals of beings from another world, but it results in the presentation of some neat aha moments. As usual in a Predator film, the size of the cast diminishes in the latter parts. But this ones going to do some big business, and will please franchise fans as well as newcomers, so theres no reason for the series not to keep on keeping on.

DEAR ABBY: My mother did something very disrespectful. She picked up my former boyfriend and took him to her house, saying she needed help with her curtains or something. He said when she came back in the room, she just had on a slip, like she was trying to seduce him. When I asked her if what he said about her was true, she replied, "Maybe I did, maybe I didn't." Not long after that, I began distancing myself from her. After I got married, she told a relative she didn't believe my baby daughter was my husband's. I was understandably upset. When I questioned her about it, she was shocked because she didn't know my cousin had told me. Right now, I don't care to be around her. I still send her cards for her birthday and Christmas, but I don't trust her anymore. What should I do? -CAN'T TRUST MY MOTHER DEAR CAN'T TRUST HER: It's sad, but not all parents are loving and supportive. In fact, some of them are toxic. Your mother appears to be one of the latter, so listen to your gut. Continue to be respectful, as you have been doing, but also continue to keep your distance. And if you are tempted to conde in her about anything private, don't do it.DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have decided to start a family, and the topic of names arose. My wife, who was born and raised in India, is insisting on Indian names for our children. The problem is they are often dif- cult to pronounce and spell. I'm not opposed to Indian middle names, but think traditional "Western" names may be more suitable, since we will live in the United States. How can I make my wife understand that having "unusual" names makes certain aspects of kids' lives more difcult? -MAKING LIFE EASY DEAR MAKING: Your wife's concept of giving the children Indian names is lovely. However, practically speaking, I agree with you. Popular names in one country can cause problems for a child living in another one. Not only can foreign names be difcult to pronounce and spell, but they can also cause a child to be teased unmercifully. Sometimes the name can be a problematic word in the English language. And one that sounds beautiful in a foreign language can be grating in English. I hope your wife will rethink this. Why saddle a kid with a name he or she will have to explain or correct with friends, teachers and fellow employees from childhood into adulthood?DEAR ABBY: A month ago, while in the process of moving, I found some of my brother's old report cards from elementary school 60 years ago. His teacher reported behavior issues, but by the end of the school year, she reported improvement. My brother is a successful businessman now with a family. Should I give him the report cards or discard them? -BIG SIS IN OHIO DEAR BIG SIS: Call your brother and tell him what you found. The two of you could have a good laugh about it. Then ask him what he wants done with his old report cards and do as he requests.

If you are attached, you have experienced a lot of good fortune through your interactions with your sweetie. You might decide to expand your home, remodel or move. SCORPIO reads between the lines. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) A partner feels intensely about a discussion and opens up a conversation about a long-term goal. You might not be comfortable with what is going on. Actually, an element of confusion could be running through your communication. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) You could be tied into a controversy without even trying. You might not realize that you have sustained a lot of pressure recently and need a break. Someone you answer to could be on the warpath. Try to keep the situation calm. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) You feel pressured to act a certain way. You might not appreciate what is happening behind the scenes. Investigate what has to be done. Minimize your obligations; you could have a special, long-desired opportunity dropped on you. CANCER (JUNE 21JULY 22) Listen to news without judgment. Know that a low-level fog might be causing a haze in your thinking. You might not know if others are getting the gist of your communication. You could nd yourself being challenged without reason. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) If you feel that something quite confusing is going on with your funds, you might be right. Double-check your change and your bills, and use care with any nancial involvement. You do not want to sign a business contract at this present moment. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Your creativity emerges. You decide to share some important concepts with a loved one. This person could be intrigued by your ingenuity, as he or she rarely sees this side of you. Decide to run with the moment and your idea. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Get to the bottom of a hassle. By observing, you will understand a lot more. You could feel awkward around a loved one. How much are you responsible for creating this situation? You often dont think about this persons feelings; you just do what you want. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You could be more integrated and complete than you thought you were. Stay sensitive to others and their needs. Someone might have difculty expressing what he or she needs, and you might not understand why. Help this person clarify. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22DEC. 21) If you can, continue to lie low. You are about to enter a very busy cycle. Get as much rest as possible, and make sure that you are up-to-date with various time-sensitive work responsibilities and errands. You might nd out an odd fact about your family. CAPRICORN (DEC.22JAN.19) Zero in on what you need to do. Dont avoid a big meeting, even if you think that you already know what is going to be discussed. Be more direct with a friend. You might want to make plans for the weekend. Your imagination takes over. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) You sixth sense often comes out when you are dealing with nances. Today, what you feel might not work needs to be left alone. In fact, the less done, the better the results will be. Do not give in to a desire to take control over an emotional situation. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Listen to the drumbeats. You will want to go along with the moment. You might be likely to experiment and try something new. Perhaps you could get into a new hobby or a different set of friends. You feel as though you want some type of renewal.
