  • An Orange County woman already struggling to care for her twin 4-year-olds while undergoing chemotherapy after having her van stolen has been hit with some more bad news. Whoever stole the van from an Orlando gas station on Orange Blossom Trail has been driving it on area toll roads to the tune of nearly $60. Until Cheri Lattarulo is able to prove her van was stolen, she’s on the hook for the unpaid tolls. “I’m already going through a lot,” she said. “It just feels like I was violated.” The tolls being accumulated by the van thief are a pinprick, though, compared to the van being stolen in the first place, Lattarulo said. Related stories: Surveillance video captures theft of nearly $10,000 from unlocked car at Orange County home Police: Leesburg 13-year-old accused in car thefts steals motorcycle 16-year-old accused of taking Melbourne police on high-speed chase in stolen truck “I work full time,” she said. “I’m going through chemotherapy. So, now I’m relying on rides.” The Central Florida Expressway Authority didn’t provide any numbers, but said it is not uncommon for stolen vehicles to be driven through toll booths. Despite the van’s license plate being photographed as it drove through tolls at least 50 times, police had not been able to track down the thief. There is new technology that should be installed by late 2018 that would help alert Florida Highway Patrol troopers when stolen vehicles are driven through tolls. Right now, though, that doesn’t do much to help Lattarulo. “I hope they do it faster,” she said. “They can easily find the vehicle.” The Orange County Sheriff’s Office Auto Theft Unit detectives said they were looking for Lattarulo’s van, but didn’t want to give away their investigative techniques. Lattarulo pleaded with the thief Thursday to bring back her vehicle, which she desperately needs. “I just really want my van back,” she said. The Central Florida Expressway Authority said that if Lattarulo sends them a copy of the police report filed when her van was stolen, she would not have to pay the tolls.
  • Blake Bortles' career in Jacksonville could be nearing an end. Coach Doug Marrone opened up the team's quarterback job after Bortles' latest inconsistent performance Thursday night, giving Chad Henne a chance to start. 'I'm looking for someone who is going to lead this offense,' Marrone said. 'I'm not happy with the performance. I'm not going to sit here and BS anyone. Everyone saw it out there. Whatever you want to call it, I'm still trying to evaluate who the best person is at that position.' Bortles completed 8 of 13 passes for 65 yards in a 12-8 preseason loss to Tampa Bay and headed to the sideline after four possessions that ended with punts. He missed Allen Robinson on two plays, including a woefully underthrown ball down the seam. 'Just didn't make a whole lot of plays,' Bortles said. 'Missed a couple of throws down the field, and we were very stagnant as an offense.' Henne got some work with the first-team offense, fueling speculation that Bortles had lost his grasp on the job. Even though the move had been planned beforehand, it gave the appearance that Marrone and football czar Tom Coughlin had wavered in their commitment to Bortles. Marrone confirmed it after the game. 'We're going to figure this thing out,' Marrone said. 'It's just simple. I'm not going to try to make this thing complicated. I'm looking for the best person to lead our offense.' Marrone and Coughlin had publicly supported Bortles all year, even picking up the fifth-year option in his rookie contract. But Marrone pulled the third overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft last week following two interceptions. Marrone said Bortles' 'arm looked tired.' Bortles denied having any issues. Bortles doesn't have a touchdown or a turnover in two preseason games. 'It's hard to not hear people booing,' Bortles said. 'But if they're cheering or booing, it's kind of irrelevant, at least for me it is. I think you've got to treat adversity and prosperity the same way. They're not booing for no reason. They're booing because you didn't do your job.' Henne's first pass should have resulted in a touchdown, but Keelan Cole dropped it at the goal line. Henne finished 6-of-10 passing for 44 yards. The Jaguars also could have a kicking competition. Jason Myers missed a field goal and an extra point. He has missed three of four field-goal attempts in two exhibitions. The Jaguars don't have another kicker in camp, but that could change Friday. 'I think that's something that we'll talk about,' Marrone said. WINSTON SHINES Jameis Winston continued his solid preseason, completing 21 of 29 passes for 196 yards for Tampa Bay. Winston had two passes dropped, including what would have been a 43-yard touchdown strike to Mike Evans in the first quarter. The Buccaneers scored on their first three possessions, getting a short touchdown run from Doug Martin and two field goals from Nick Folk. Tampa Bay dominated Jacksonville in two quarters that featured mostly starters, outgaining the Jags 240-59 and looking like the much better team. 'We've got to finish,' Winston said. 'We've got to have touchdowns in the red zone.' Coach Dirk Koetter praised Winston's performance aside from an ill-advised throw that ended up being a sack. 'Other than that one play, he was extremely sharp,' Koetter said. 'But we have extremely high standards for him as he does for himself. He took us right down the field, had a lot of run checks, converted on third downs. He did the things that quarterbacks like him are supposed to do, except for one play. ... Elite quarterbacks don't make that play.' FOLK'S NIGHT Bucs kicker Nick Folk, who won the job last week after the team waived former second-round draft pick Roberto Aguayo, had an extra point blocked by Calais Campbell. He also missed a 47-yarder wide right in the fourth quarter. SITTING OUT The Buccaneers played without two starters: cornerback Brent Grimes (leg laceration) and linebacker Devante Bond (sprained knee). The Jaguars were without rookie running back Leonard Fournette (foot), receiver Marqise Lee (ankle) and their top three cornerbacks. Jalen Ramsey, A.J. Bouye and Aaron Colvin did not dress. INJURIES Tampa Bay: Starting right tackle Demar Dotson left the game with a groin injury and did not return. Cornerback Josh Robinson injured a hamstring. Jacksonville: Running back T.J. Yeldon injured his left hamstring and did not return. Cornerback Charles Gaines injured his right eye. ___ For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL
  • Employees at Wolfy's in Sanford made the city's police officers guests of honor Thursday as a way of saying 'thank you' for quickly capturing two men accused of trying to rob the restaurant and stabbing a manager. The two men were arrested Monday evening. Alfredo Jackson Rivas, 33, and Guy Junior Hughes, 47, were accused of approaching Larry 'Pic' Picardat shortly before 7:30 a.m. Sunday at Wolfy's on Lake Monroe near North Palmetto Avenue and East Seminole Boulevard, Sanford police spokesman Ronny Neal said. Investigators said one of the men ordered Picardat to open the restaurant’s safe at gunpoint, but he refused to do so. Picardat told detectives that he thought the gun was fake. Related stories: Police: 2 arrested in connection with stabbing of Sanford restaurant manager Manager of Sanford restaurant stabbed multiple times during robbery, police say Police said that while Picardat wrestled the gunman, the other suspect stabbed him 10 times -- in the neck, the lower midsection and the leg. Picardat called 911 for help after he was stabbed. He was taken to Central Florida Regional Hospital, where he continues to recover. Customers described Picardat as a nice and hardworking man. 'We have a lot of our group coming out tonight to help support Larry,' his friend Scott Mickens said Thursday. 'We support his family. Anything he needs, we're there for him.' Thursday's event was a fundraiser for the Sanford Police Department's traditional Sunday barbeque, where off-duty officers cook for officers working the street. While the department was being honored Thursday for their work, Chief Cecil Smith gave a lot of the credit back to the community. 'They realized that something terrible happened here, and they were actively helping us to find these individuals,' Smith said.

  • A group of storms east of the Caribbean has developed into Tropical Storm Harvey.   Harvey is approaching the Lesser Antilles and it is forecast to continue traveling west, officially arriving in the Caribbean Friday afternoon. It has been given a 100 percent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone over the next two days.   It’s also expected to become a hurricane by Monday morning. At this point it is no threat to Florida.   “We have entered the peak of Hurricane season, which is mid-August through late October,” said Dennis Feltgen, spokesman for the National Hurricane Center.
  • Jay Cutler's night started by getting an ovation from Miami Dolphins fans just for taking the field, and ended with him giving a shout-out to Mark Bowen. That's the surgeon who fixed his right shoulder after his season with the Chicago Bears ended last December. Cutler's shoulder is just fine, and that's about all Miami had to cheer about. Ryan Mallett threw for 113 yards and a touchdown , Josh Woodrum ran for two more scores and the Baltimore Ravens beat the Dolphins 31-7 on Thursday night in the second preseason game for both teams. 'Dr. Bowen in Chicago, nice job,' Cutler said, with a thumbs-up for emphasis. Cutler played the first two series for the Dolphins, his debut as injured starter Ryan Tannehill's replacement in Miami. He was 3 of 6 for 24 yards , some of it in a no-huddle tempo, and his highlight play was one that didn't count. Facing a third-and-16, Cutler stepped up and found DeVante Parker for what would have been a 31-yard gain — one erased by a holding flag. 'Thought he was good,' said Dolphins coach Adam Gase, who also coached Cutler in Chicago. 'First time out. Looks like we really weren't apart for a year. His tempo was really good.' Cutler took a big hit on his last snap, courtesy of the Ravens' Za'Darius Smith. He got up without any problem, then switched his helmet for a baseball cap and headset. 'I was kind of glad to get that one out of the way,' Cutler said. Ravens starting quarterback Joe Flacco isn't expected to play until Week 1 of the regular season because of back woes, and Mallett played the entire first half. 'I thought he did good,' Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. 'He got out of trouble a few times. He made a few throws.' Mallett completed 13 of 22 passes, getting intercepted twice — both on passes intended for Quincy Adeboyejo. The first pick was by Xavier Howard on a ball lofted down the left sideline and overthrow, the other coming when Cordrea Tankersley ripped the ball out of Adeboyejo's hands after he had to reach back to make a catch on a quick slant. 'I think I played better,' Mallett said. 'There's still plays to be made.' Woodrum completed eight of 10 passes for 110 yards. 'He's got some poise, he can play the game,' Harbaugh said. Senorise Perry had an 11-yard touchdown run for Miami, but he also fumbled away a kickoff return — one of many Miami special-teams miscues. The Dolphins also had a punt blocked in the second quarter, setting up Mallett's 1-yard touchdown toss to Larry Donnell, and later had a hold on a kickoff return. Gase said Miami had 10 men on the field for the blocked punt. 'It's one of those unforced errors we can't have happen,' Gase said. TUCKER AUTOMATIC Ravens kicker Justin Tucker is automatic from 50 yards or more. Tucker connected on a 52-yarder for the Ravens' first points of the night. He also made a 59-yarder in Baltimore's preseason-opening win over Washington, and was 10 for 10 on tries from 50 yards or more last season. Tucker also recovered a fumble on a misplayed kickoff return, one of Miami's many special-teams issues. But Tucker also tried to scoop-and-score the fumble recovery, drawing serious ire from Terrell Suggs and others on the Ravens sideline. 'Suggs was about to strangle him when he came off,' Harbaugh said. Said Tucker: 'Obviously, I'm better with my feet than my hands.' QB WATCH Dolphins backup Matt Moore, like Cutler, was also done for the night by the time the first quarter was over. He completed 3 of 5 passes for 11 yards, before getting relieved by David Fales. Brandon Doughty came in for Miami in the second half. COMING HOME Baltimore's third quarterback, Thaddeus Lewis, was enjoying a homecoming. He played his high school ball at nearby Hialeah-Miami Lakes High. TOUGH START Dolphins offensive lineman Sam Young was flagged for holding on consecutive plays in the first quarter, including one that wiped out the Cutler-to-Parker play for 31 yards. MORE OF THE SAME The Ravens and Dolphins last met in December, with Baltimore winning that matchup 38-6. Baltimore is 25-9 in its last 34 preseason games. ___ AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL
  • Nearly three months after 13-year-old Marcees Kilpatrick was struck and killed by a SunRail train in Seminole County, the Florida Department of Transportation announced a plan to make areas of train track safer. FDOT has allocated $400,000 to put up fencing in the area where Kilpatrick died in the area of McCracken and 18th Streets. Along with the 2,400 feet of fencing planned there, 11 other areas also determined to be trespassing hotspots will have fencing installed to keep people from crossing the tracks. Work is expected to start in January 2018. Related stories: 13-year-old boy killed by SunRail train in Sanford, officials say Community remembers 13-year-old boy killed by SunRail train in Sanford Audit identifies track where teen was hit by SunRail train as ‘hotspot' for trespassers Students at Sanford school mourn classmate fatally struck by SunRail train Area residents, though, would prefer to see the money spent on bike paths or a pedestrian walkway. “A child has been killed and still they want to put a fence? What kind of fence? They want to put up a chain link fence?” Sanford resident Francis Oliver asked. “How long you think that is going to stay?” There are ways to make the area safer that don’t involve fences, Oliver said. “You got two subdivisions there, both are black, and you are going to fence them off and divide the community when already the buses have been taken out of the community?” he asked. The Florida Department of Transportation released the following statement about the plan to put up the fencing in Sanford: 'Cut-through foot traffic over the mainline railroad tracks in this area is potentially dangerous. This fencing is being constructed for the safety of residents, train passengers and train crews.
