[SANA VIA THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Jill ColvinThe Associated PressWEST PALM BEACH, Fla. „ President Donald Trump on Sunday claimed North Korea has agreed to denuclearizationŽ before his potential meeting with Kim Jong Un. But thats not the case.North Korea said Friday it would suspend nuclear tests and intercontinental ballistic missile launches ahead of summits with the U.S. and South Korea. Kim also said a nuclear test site would be closed and dismantledŽ now that the country has learned how to make nuclear weapons and mount warheads on bal-listic rockets.But the North has stopped short of saying it has any intention of abandoning its nuclear arsenal, with Kim making clear that nukes remain a treasured sword.ŽTrump nonetheless tweeted Sunday that the North has agreed to denuclearization (so great for World), site closure, & no more testing!ŽBeing committed to the concept of denuclearization, however, is not the same as agreeing to it, as Trump claims.South Korea, which is set to meet with North Korea later this week, has said Kim has expressed genuine interest in dealing away his nuclear weap-ons. But the North for decades has been pushing a concept of denuclearizationŽ that bears no resemblance to the Ameri-can definition, vowing to pursue nuclear development unless Washington removes See TRUMP, A7Trump jumps the gunDespite president claims, North Korea has not agreed to denuclearizationBy Frank Stanfieldfrankstanfield@dailycommercial.comLEESBURG „ There are two things that make the sweetest sound during Bike-fest: The vroom-vroom of motorcycles and the cha-ching of cash registers.Last year, however, there was less of both. In fact, the giant street party on wheels fell short of budget expectations, according to Joe Shipes of the Leesburg Partnership, which spon-sors the event.Last year was a weather event,Ž said Shipes, who is the chief executive officer of the partnership. There were so many heat advisories EMS asked for more cooling fans.ŽWeather is always a concern.If we have a weekend like we had Sunday wed be wiped out,Ž he said. Not only was Lake County hit with heavy rain and wind, but there were tornado watches, too.It wasnt just the heat that withered last years attendance, however. It is typically hot the last week-end of April. Other factors play a role, including the entertainment, the economy and demographics. Harley-Davidson, for example, the king of heavy American motorcycles, has seen a decline in sales as baby boomers get older.If this years event, from April 27-29, rakes in less money it wont be for lack of effort.The Leesburg partnership has been hunkered down in its war roomŽ for weeks preparing for the event that has almost as many moving parts as participants. A long line of white boards is filled with checklists. Tables are thrust together to form a giant conference table, and phones are ringing.Keeping up with the timesBikers roll down Main Street for Bikefest in Leesburg.

LOTTERY MOSCOWRussian lawyer questions why Mueller hasnt contacted herA Russian lawyer who discussed sanctions with Donald Trump Jr. in New York during his fathers 2016 campaign for the U.S. presidency said Sunday that special counsel Robert Mueller has not contacted her yet.In an interview Natalia Veselnitskaya also detailed her recent meeting in Berlin with investigators from the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee. Veselnitskaya met in June 2016 with then-candidate Donald Trumps son, his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort, his campaign chair-man at the time, Paul Manafort, after Trump Jr. was told the Russian lawyer had potentially incriminating information about Hillary Clinton.LONDONFour Britons on pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia killed in bus crashFour Britons on pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia were killed Saturday in a bus crash, a British travel company and officials said.The four were among more than a dozen British pilgrims on a bus travelling from Mecca to Medina, said Hashim Travel, a British company specializing in pilgrimage tours.The Saudi Arabian Embassy in London said the accident involved the bus the passen-gers who died were riding in, a small car and a gasoline tanker truck. The Associated PressBy Kim Tong-HyungThe Associated PressSEOUL, South Korea „ Bill Clinton offered oil and reactors. George W. Bush mixed threats and aid. Barack Obama stopped trying after a rocket launch.While Seoul and Washing-ton welcomed Pyongyangs declaration on Saturday to suspend further intercontinental ballistic missile tests and shut down its nuclear test site, the past is littered with failure.A decades-long cycle of crises, stalemates and broken promises gave North Korea the room to build up a legiti-mate arsenal that now includes purported thermonuclear warheads and developmen-tal ICBMs. The Norths latest announcement stopped well short of suggesting it has any intention of giving that up.South Korean President Moon Jae-in meets with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Friday to kick off a new round of high-stakes nuclear diplo-macy with Pyongyang. The inter-Korean summit could set up more substantial discussions between Kim and President Donald Trump, who said he plans to meet the dicta-tor he previously called Little Rocket ManŽ in May or June.A look at previous nego-tiations with North Korea and how the currently planned summits took shape: 1994 The Clinton administration in October 1994 reached a major nuclear agreement with Pyongyang, ending months of war fears triggered by North Koreas threat to withdraw from the nuclear Nonprolif-eration Treaty and convert its stockpile of nuclear fuel into bombs.Under the Agreed Frame-work,Ž North Korea halted construction of two reactors the United States believed were for nuclear weapons production in return for two alternative nuclear power reactors that could be used to provide electricity but not bomb fuel, and 500,000 metric tons of fuel oil annu-ally for the North.The deal was tested quickly. North Korea complained about delayed oil shipments and construction of the reactors, which were never delivered. The United States criticized the Norths pursuit of ballistic missile capability, demonstrated in the launch of a two-stage rocket over Japan in 1998. 2005Responding to Washing-tons toughened stance, North Korea announced in 2003 that it obtained a nuclear device and would withdraw from the Nonproliferation Treaty.This brought the United States back to the negotiat-ing table with the North, and six-party talks also involving South Korea, China, Japan and Russia began in Beijing in August 2003. After months of fiery nego-tiations, North Korea accepted a deal in September 2005 to end its nuclear weapons pro-gram in exchange for security, economic and energy benefits. Disagreements between Washington and Pyongyang temporarily derailed the six-nation talks. In October 2006, the North went on to conduct its first nuclear test.2007North Korea agreed to resume the six-nation disarmament talks a few weeks after the nuclear test. In Feb-ruary 2007, the United States and the four other countries reached an agreement to pro-vide North Korea with an aid package worth about $400 million in return for the North disabling its nuclear facilities .North Korea demolished the cooling tower at its Nyongbyon reactor site in June 2008. But in September, the North declared that it would resume reprocessing plutonium, complaining that Washington wasnt fulfill-ing its promise to remove the country from the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism.The Bush administration removed North Korea from the list in October 2008 after the country agreed to continue disabling its nuclear plant. However, a final attempt by Bush to com-plete an agreement collapsed in December when the North refused to accept U.S.-pro-posed verification methods. The North conducted its second nuclear test in May 2009, months after Obama took office. 2012Months after taking power following the death of his father, current North Korean leader Kim reached a deal with the Obama administration in February 2012 to suspend tests and to also allow international inspectors to monitor its nuclear activities in exchange for U.S. food aid.The United States killed the deal in April 2012 when the North launched a long-range rocket that it claimed was built for delivering satellites. The failed launch was seen by the outside world as a prohibited missile test .The North criticized the United States of overreactingŽ and launched another long-range rocket in December 2012 that it said successfully delivered a satellite into space.Denuclearization: Easier said than doneAll past e orts to rid North Korea of nuclear weapons have failedPeople watch a TV screen showing an image of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during a news program Saturday at the Seoul Railway Station in Seoul, South Korea.

The tuition cost, without fees normally paid by regular college students, is $105 per credit hour for university courses, $72 for college courses and $2.33 per contact hour for students enrolled in certificate or technical training programs.Students attending private high schools can also take dual-enrollment courses, with tuition generally covered, but not necessarily, by the private schools through articulation agreements with public col-leges and universities.But the private-school law was changed as part of a mas-sive education bill (HB 7055) passed during this years leg-islative session and signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott.The new law removed a prior requirement that articulation agreements have a provision stating whether the private school will compensate the postsecondary institution for the standard tuition rate per credit hour for each dual-enrollment course taken by its students.ŽThe impact of that change was discussed by college presidents last week in a teleconference. Some of the presidents said the removal of the language would not necessarily prohibit the private schools from continuing to pay dual-enrollment tuition if it was part of existing agree-ments with the colleges.But Madeline Pumariega, chancellor for the state col-lege system, urged cautionŽ in making an immediate interpre-tation, saying the Department of Education would offer some guidance.Pumariega said part of the issue is determining exactly how much the impact would be if private schools were no longer responsible for tuition costs.An analysis by Senate staff members estimated that of more than 56,000 dual-enrollment students attending colleges, more than 3,000 came from private schools in the 2016-2017 academic year.Analysts at the university systems Board of Governors said fewer than 300 dualenrollment students came from private schools in the fall of 2016.Pumariega said the college system will make its analysis of the fiscal impact of the legal change and then ask lawmak-ers for a funding adjustment, if warranted.Well be glad to give you the impact,Ž Ken Atwater, president of Hillsborough Community College, told Pumariega. If we have the option to charge, we are going to continue to charge.ŽSen. Dennis Baxley, an Ocala Republican who sponsored legislation (SB 1064) aimed at making it easier for private school students to use the dual-enrollment program, said he understands the colleges concerns and would support a budget increase if necessary.I acknowledge there may be a gap there that we need to take care of,Ž Baxley said. Im ready to address that because my major goal is to make sure all students in Florida have access to dual enrollment.ŽLike Pumariega, Baxley said he wants to see more data on how the change may or may not impact colleges. He said he has not heard the same concerns from state universities, which have far fewer dual-enrollment students.Well get some truer num-bers as we see the response, and then lets address that,Ž Baxley said. If there is a deficit for the state colleges, as I believe there will be, we want to cover that.Ž COLLEGESFrom Page A3 Shell/Circle K of Bushnell received honors for their dedication to Sumter County Schools at a ceremony during a Sumter County School Board meeting. By Sheila BurkeThe Associated PressNASHVILLE, Tenn. „ A gunman wearing nothing but a green jacket and brandishing an assault rifle stormed a Waffle House restaurant in Nash-ville a nd shot four people to death before dawn Sunday, according to police, who credited a customer with saving lives by wresting the assailants weapon away.The gunman shot people in the parking lot before entering the restaurant, where he continued firing until a customer grabbed the rifle, Nashville Police spokes-man Don Aaron said. Four people were also wounded before the gunman fled, shed-ding his jacket.Authorities said they were searching for the suspect, 29-year-old Travis Reinking, and that they were drafting murder warrants for him. Nashville police tweeted that the pickup truck the gunman drove to the restaurant was registered to Reinking.Witness Chuck Cordero told The Tennessean news-paper he had stopped to get a cup of coffee and was outside the restaurant when the chaos unfolded around 3:25 a.m. He did not say anything,Ž Cordero said of the gunman, who he described as all business.ŽCordero said the man who wrested the gun from the sus-pect saved lives. Had that guy had a chance to reload his weapon, there was plenty more people in that restau-rant,Ž he said.Police identified the man who grabbed the weapon as 29-year-old James Shaw, Jr.Shaw told the Tennessean in an interview that he was just trying to get myself out.

A6 Monday, April 23, 2018 | PROTESTSFrom Page A1Kasmir gave up protest-ing when it failed to stop the Iraq War in 2003. But after the 2017 Womens March, she rallied for gun control near her home in Hilton Head, South Carolina, joining millions of Americans demanding change.I think weve reached a tipping point,Ž Kasmir said.Theres something hap-pening here. But what is it, exactly, and why now?More than five decades after Americans poured into the streets to demand civil rights and the end to a deeply unpopular war, thousands are embracing a culture of resistance unlike anything since.NFL players have taken a knee during the national anthem. Teachers have packed statehouses to demand raises. Activists proclaiming #MeToo,Ž have called out those who have abused them.Were in a moment where people are frustrated with institutional politics and where people see urgent issues that need addressing and for a moment they believe that taking action can make a difference,Ž said David S. Meyer, a professor at the University of California, Irvine and author of The Politics of Protest: Social Movements in America.ŽOpposition to Trump has clearly been a catalyst, he and others said.For many activists on the left, theres a great deal of fear that we may be living in the last days of this experiment in democratic self-rule, that Donald Trumps election may mark a fatal turning point,Ž said Maurice Isser-man, a professor of history at Hamilton College.But many protesters speak for causes beyond electoral politics, includ-ing concerns like shooting deaths or racial discrimi-nation predating Trumps political rise. Much the same can be said of the turnout by white suprem-acists, likely reflecting views held before Trumps election.Such protests didnt spontaneously combust,Ž said Todd Gitlin, who in the 1960s was president of the activist group Stu-dents for a Democratic Society and has studied protest movements as a professor at Columbia University. There are deep cleavages that are in play and they will manifest themselves in a variety of ways.ŽRecent protests have drawn together broad coalitions. In Charlotte, North Carolina, Rachel Hewitt returned to protesting for the first time since the early 1980s, when she marched in sup-port of the Equal Rights Amendment. The cata-lyst this time was Trump, whose election left Hewitt deeply depressed.So Hewitt, who is 65, white and works as a freelance graphic artist, boarded a bus, alone, to join the Womens March. The shared sense of purpose she found was life-altering,Ž she said. When students from south Floridas Parkland High School organized the March for Our LivesŽ last month in Washington, Hewitt chartered a bus. Its just thrilling to see that they very well could do what we werent able to do,Ž Hewitt said. She points to 16-year-old Amya Burse, who organized a safety task force and a rally at her Charlotte high school after the Park-land killings.Burse said she has been jarred to action by a lock-down last fall when a student brought a gun to school. But social media have alerted her to pro-tests against other causes.When we started seeing one group getting enough success, we started realizing, well, maybe we can do something for myself,Ž said Burse, who is black and a junior.The dexterity, particu-larly of young people, in using video and social media to shape their mes-sage have enabled them to organize quickly and effectively, Meyer said.Jan Rose Kasmir holds a sign with a photo of her offering a ” ower to soldiers in a 1967 protest against the Vietnam War, during a March 24 rally for gun safety laws in Bluffton, S.C. [COURTESY JAN ROSE KASMIR VIA THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] Security alone plays a major part in planning, with emergency officials discussing everything from minor first-aid to a potential major disaster.The three-day attendance for the event is projected to be as high as 200,000,Ž according to a recent memo to Leesburg city commissioners from the Recreation Department.Shipes fig ures the total is probably closer to 150,000, but it is impossible to get an actual count.The city each year estab-lishes a designated vendor zone that can handle 30,000 people at a time. The downtown zone runs roughly from 9th Street to Lake Street. Built in to that concept are vendor fees to help the partnership offset its costs. This years fee is $2.33 per square foot, which is the same fee going back to 2015. The partnerships costs of staging the annual event is about $671,000, according to city records.Lake County chips in $40,000 from hotel taxes. This year, Leesburg cut a grant check for $38,000. Other funds come in from sponsors and vendors.One of the biggest costs is paying for the bands. The bigger the name the bigger the crowd, but also the bigger the expense.In 2016, Bret Michaels and his band Poison drew big crowds, but you cant do that every year,Ž said Shipes.Unlike regular concert venues, there is no ticket fee. If I could do that it would be different,Ž he said.Big bands require pro-moters to pay for hotels and other expenses.We do the sound and lighting,Ž Shipes said. Because there are numerous bands moving on and off the stage, the partnership provides keyboards and drum kits. There are also marketing expenses and labor. There are a lot of volunteers but they dont always show up,Ž he said. Then, there are expenses for things like garbage removal, portable toilets and security. Bikefest gen-erates 40 tons of garbage. Initially, the city removed it. The Lake County Sher-iffs Office also used to offer its services without cost, but the partnership must now pay for that too. Key to success is keeping up with changing times.Harley-Davidson has been king, but a younger set of motorcycle enthusiasts are also flocking to the Indian brand and sleek, imported crotch rocketŽ sport bikes.Harley-Davidson is countering with its own sport bikes and seeking new customers among the young, women and Afri-can-Americans, according to Forbes magazine.Harleys retail sales declined 1.6 percent yearover-year in 2016, despite a 2.3 percent growth in international sales, due to a 3.9 percent decline in U.S. retail sales,Ž the magazine reported last February.This year, Harley-Davidson announced plans to close a factory in Kansas City, Mo.The Milwaukee-based company said its net income fell 82 percent in its fiscal fourth quarter to $8.3 million, compared with a year earlier,Ž USA Today reported. Earn-ings per share were 5 cents, down from 27 cents a year earlier. Revenue was $1.23 million, compared with a year earlier.ŽOverseas sales helped, or else it would have been worse.John Malik, one of the principal owners of Gator Harley in Leesburg, said his dealership has sold 80 more motorcycles in March than it did last year.I dont know if the economy is getting better or what,Ž he said.Harley-Davidson closed its Kansas City plant because the company quit making two models, and decided they could consoli-date operations in a newer plant in Pennsylvania, Malik said.One of the reasons for the decline is that a key Harley market „ baby boomers „ is fading out.Mark Lane, a reporter with the with The Daytona Beach News -Journal, said this years crowd for Bike Week and Spring Break were both down, partly because of cold, wind and rain.Bike Week promoters trotted out the traditional 500,000-visitor estimate for Bike Week 18. But my anecdotal, not-based-on-data, gut feeling is that the numbers dropped from last year. The noise level was lower, the congestion on U.S. Highway 1 was not as dense, and I noticed fewer guys in black leather in the beer aisle at the supermar-ket. Those are the metrics I usually go by.And this would be in keeping with the widespread belief that Bike Week, despite slight ups and downs, has been in a slow-leak mode. I suspect attendance peaked sometime in the early 2000s. This is due to a lot of things, the big one being demographic: Bike Week is aging out.ŽMalik said its not just Harley-Davidson that is trying to reach millennials. It is also the ATV manufac-turers, water craft and other types of bikes. Theyre just not buying,Ž he said.Shipes has noticed a change as Bikefest is pre-paring to celebrate its 22nd year. Bikers who were in their 50s when the event first started are now in their 70s. They dont hang out as much during the evening. That cuts into food and beverage revenues.If Shipes has a motto, however, it is, We must keep up with the emerg-ing market.ŽThe partnership has switched up the music, from Southern and classic rock to hair and grunge, spanned the decades from the 60s to the current era, and offers a mixture at each years event.This years bands include Tom Keifer of the Cinder-ella blues-rock band, Scott Stapp of the rock band Creed, and Colt Ford, whose range runs from country to rap.Of course, you dont need a bike to come, Shipes notes. A lot of people consider this to be a giant street party.Ž BIKEFESTFrom Page A1The Leesburg partnership has been hunkered down in its war roomŽ for weeks preparing for this years Bikefest that has almost as many moving parts as participants.

If true, that would seem to remove a major sticking point to a potential disarmament deal.But that still doesnt address a North Korean arsenal that now includes purported thermonuclear warheads and develop-mental ICBMs developed during a decadeslong cycle of crises, stalemates and broken promises.Trump agreed to meet with Kim after an invita-tion was delivered by a South Korean delegation that had just returned from Pyongyang.I told President Trump that in our meeting, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said hes committed to denuclearization,Ž South Koreas national security adviser later told report-ers on the White House driveway. Kim pledged that North Korea will refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests.ŽA place and date have yet to be set, but Trumps pick to be the next secre-tary of state, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, traveled to North Korea on Easter weekend to lay the groundwork for the meet-ing. Trump has called the talks a success, but its unclear exactly what was agreed to, if anything, as a condition for the leader-to-leader talks.Look, this is a great public relations effort by Kim Jong-un. And I think people recognize that,Ž Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tennessee, said Sunday on CNNs State of the Union.Ž But asked whether be believed the North would denuclearize, Corker offered caution.Well, I dont think he said anything about denuclearizing on the front end necessarily,Ž he said.He added on ABCs This WeekŽ that its unrealistic to think that somebodys going to go in and charmŽ Kim out of keeping his nuclear weapons.Is it realistic that hes just willy-nilly going to do that? Absolutely not,Ž Corker said. But, you know, progress can be made, freezing the program, who knows what hes „ what his ambitions are as it relates to South Korea.ŽSen. Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, was equally as skeptical on CBS Face the Nation,Ž argu-ing that North Koreas recent statements are easily reversible and that no announcement has been made about shortor medium-range ballistic missiles that threaten South Korea and Japan.Well, I think this announcement on Friday is better than continued testing, but its not much better than that,Ž he said. But I do think they show that the president has put Kim Jong Un on the wrong foot for the first time.ŽAsked what denuclearization means to both sides, White House Legislative Director Marc Short said on NBCs Meet the PressŽ that there needs to be a sit-down meeting to make sure everyones on the same page.But I think from our perspective, it means full denuclearization,Ž he said. No longer having nuclear weapons that can be used in warfare against any of our allies.ŽStill, Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California, told CBS that if the president goes through with the meet-ing, its very importantŽ that it goes well and that there is an ability to put together some terms of an agreement that might exist.ŽIn this Friday photo provided by the North Korean government, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un speaks during a meeting of the Central Committee of the Workers Party of Korea, in Pyongyang, North Korea. [KOREAN CENTRAL NEWS AGENCY/KOREA NEWS SERVICE VIA THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Rahim FaiezThe Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan „ An Islamic State sui-cide bomber carried out an attack at a voter registration center in the capital Kabul on Sunday, killing 57 people and wounding more than 100 others, said officials from the Afghan interior and public health ministries.Public Health Ministry spokesman Wahid Majro said that among 57 who were killed in the attack, 22 were women and eight are children. Majro added that 119 people were wounded in Sundays attack, among them 17 children and 52 women. The tolls could still rise,Ž he added.Gen. Daud Amin, the Kabul police chief, said the suicide bomber targeted civilians who were registering for national identification cards.The large explosion echoed across the city, shat-tering windows miles away from the attack site and damaging several nearby vehicles. Police blocked all roads to the blast site, with only ambulances allowed in. Local TV stations broadcast live footage of hundreds of distraught locals gathered at nearby hospitals seeking word about loved ones.The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement carried by its Aamaq news agency, saying it had tar-geted Shiite apostates.ŽThe attack comes almost a month after another deadly attack by IS in which a suicide bomber carried out an attack near a Shiite shrine in Kabul that tar-geted attendees celebrating the Persian new year. That attack killed 31 people and wounded 65 others.In a statement issued by the presidents office condemned Sundays attack and quoted President Ashraf Ghani as saying such terrorist attacksŽ wont prevent people from participating in upcoming parliamentary elections.Afghanistan will hold parliamentary elections in October and voter registra-tion started a week ago.Last week, three police officers guarding voter registration centers in two Afghan provinces were killed by militants, accord-ing to authorities.Afghan security forces have struggled to prevent attacks by the local Islamic State affiliate as well as the more firmly established Taliban since the U.S. and NATO concluded their combat mission at the end of 2014. Both groups reg-ularly carry out attacks, with the Taliban usually targeting the government and security forces and IS targeting the countrys Shiite minority.Both groups want to establish a strict form of Islamic rule in Afghanistan and are opposed to demo-cratic elections.Elsewhere in Afghanistan, at least five people were killed when their vehicle struck a roadside bomb in the northern Baghlan province. Zabihul-lah Shuja, spokesman for the provincial police chief, said four other people were wounded in Sundays blast in Puli Khomri, the prov-inces capital.The Taliban routinely target security forces and government officials with roadside bombs, which often end up killing civilians.In the northern Balkh province, a district police chief died of his wounds after being shot Saturday during an exchange of gunfire with insurgents, according to Sher Jan Durrani, spokesman for the provincial police chief. He said around a dozen insurgents were also killed in the battle, which is still underway.IS suicide bomber kills 57 in Afghan capitalAn Afghan police walks outside a voter registration center which was attacked by a suicide bomber Sunday in Kabul, Afghanistan.

A8 Monday, April 23, 2018 | The Associated PressMANAGUA, Nicaragua „ Dozens of shops in the Nicaraguan capital of Managua have been looted as protests and disturbances sparked by government social secu-rity reforms continued into Sunday. Human rights groups say at least 26 people have been killed in several days of clashes.Images broadcast by local news media showed looted shops in the sprawl-ing Oriental Market district and at least one Walmart.Police apparently did not intervene, in contrast to what had been a heavy-handed response to the demonstrations, in which dozens have been injured or arrested.State-controlled media blamed protesters for the looting, while critics spec-ulated that it was being allowed in order to pressure the business sector, which has set conditions for talks with the government, including an end to the harsh crackdown.We are seeing social chaos in Nicaragua provoked by the absence of government leadership, and the crisis has been combined with poverty, and that in any society is a time bomb,Ž sociologist and analyst Cirilo Otero said.It is believable that the government is promoting (the looting) to put pressure on private enterprise to give in to dialogue even if the violence does not stop, and the cost could be very high,Ž he added.From the Vatican, Pope Francis said he was very worriedŽ about the situation in the Central American nation and joined local bishops in seeking an end to all violence.The disturbances broke out in response to Presi-dent Daniel Ortegas effort to shore up the troubled social security system with a combination of reduced benefits and increased taxes. They appear to have expanded to include broader anti-government grievances.Ortega said Saturday that he would agree to negotiate on the social security reforms so that there is no more terror for Nicaraguan families,Ž but he said the talks would be only with business leaders.He also seemed to try to justify the tough response by the government and allied groups, accusing demonstrators, most of them university students, of being manipulated by unspecified minorityŽ political interests and of being infiltrated by gangsters.What is happening in our country has no name. The kids do not even know the party that is manipulating them. ... Gang members are being brought into the kids protests and are criminalizing the pro-tests. That is why they are put at risk,Ž Ortega said.Those remarks appeared to fan the flames, as soon afterward thousands of people spilled back into the streets in seven cities.On Saturday, journalist Angel Gahona was reporting live via Facebook on protests in the southeastern city of Blue-fields when he was killed by a gunshot. At least 25 other people have been killed since Wednesday according to the indepen-dent Nicaraguan Human Rights Center, though the government had acknowl-edged only nine dead.We are in the streets asking for Ortega and his wife to go. This has already gone beyond the social security issue. Here there have been dead, wounded, and he does not even apologize for his killings or the savage repression against the people,Ž said Mauri Her-nandez, one of thousands of demonstrators at a cen-tral rotunda.Dozens of businesses looted amid Nicaragua unrestA protester holds up a Nicaraguan ” ag that reads in Spanish Free country.

They agreed to give up their last pocket there on Friday but have yet to begin surren-dering to government forces and relocating to IS-held areas elsewhere in the country.State-run al-Ikhbariya TV showed thick gray smoke billowing from the Hajar al-Aswad neighborhood on Sunday, and government warplanes streaking overhead amid heavy bo mbardment of the area.Residents of Damascus reported hearing loud booms throughout the night and Sunday morning.UNRWA spokesman Chris Gunnes said that since the start of fighting four days ago, most of the six thousand civilians in Yarmouk camp have been forcibly displaced to the neighboring area of Yalda.Most fled their homes with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Their needs are dire. There are reports that people are begging for medicine. Some have spent their first nights in the street,Ž he said in a statement.Gunnes said added that the camps last function-ing hospital, Palestine Hospital, is now completely unable to operate and called on all sides to allow for the safe evacua-tion of civilians wishing to leave the area.President Bashar Assad has escalated his military campaign to retake all remaining enclaves in the capital and surround-ing areas. The IS-held areas in southern Damas-cus are the last holdouts, after rebels evacuated the eastern Ghouta suburbs following a fierce gov-ernment offensive and an alleged poison gas attack in the town of Douma.Chemical weapons inspectors collected samples from Douma on Saturday, two weeks after the suspected gas attack there prompted retaliatory strikes by Western powers on the Syrian governments chemical facilities.The site visit, confirmed by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, will allow the agency to proceed with an independent investi-gation to determine what chemicals, if any, were used in the April 7 attack that medical workers said killed more than 40 people. The OPCW mission is not mandated to apportion blame for the attack.Douma was the final target of the governments sweeping campaign to seize back control of eastern Ghouta from rebels after seven years of revolt. Militants gave up the town days after the alleged attack. The Syrian government and its ally Russia denied responsibility for the sus-pected chemical attack. Meanwhile, rebels have begun evacuating three towns in the eastern Qalamoun region in the Damascus countryside.Al-Ikhbariya TV said that 35 buses left the towns of Ruhaiba, Jayroud, and al-Nasriya on Saturday carrying hundreds of rebels and their families to opposition-held territory in northern Syria.The station said the evacuations would con-tinue for three days.On Sunday, Swedens Ambassador to the United Nations said that he and other Security Council envoys had agreed to work on a meaningful mechanismŽ to work out who was behind the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria.Olof Skoog spoke in southern Sweden after an annual, informal working meeting with the U.N. Security Council ambassadors.The meeting comes just a week after the U.S., France and Britain bombed suspected Syrian chemical weapons facilities, after accusing Assads government of being behind the attack in Douma.

PAGE 9 | Monday, April 23, 2018 A9 The rising costs of college have spawned a cottage industry of books and advisers targeting students and their parents. It has led to handwringing about the price of on-campus amenities and prompted legislation in Florida aimed at incentivizing schools to graduate students more quickly. Indeed, the costs of attending universities in most states have risen far faster than cost-of-living benchmarks. The effects of large debts from loans incurred by students have led to wide-ranging debates over the value of higher education. Nevertheless, each year prospective students seek admission to the most prestigious and costliest schools in the United States. Often those students and their parents are driven by the status associated with attending big-name schools and the promise of high-paying jobs. For high-income families, those costs arent a problem. But for others ... Low-income students determined to obtain a college degree have long been guided to more affordable venues such as community colleges. High school graduates from middle-income households have generally aimed above their means but selected fallback schools in case they werent admitted to selective institutions „ or if they simply could not afford high tuition and fees. These are generalities, of course, but weve all heard these stories. One scenario for middle-income students is beginning to change, however, according to an April 5 article in The New York Times. The articles headline and subhead deftly summarized the subject: Middle-Class Families Increasingly Look to Community Colleges. With college prices in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, more middle-class families are looking for ways to spend less for quality education.Ž The story focused on a successful student who attended a highly rated high school in Pasadena, Calif. Many of her fellow students left for prestigious institutions after graduating from high school, but this young woman decided to attend nearby Pasadena City College for her first two years; her goal is to subsequently transfer to a first-tier university to obtain her bachelors degree, with more money in the bank than her former classmates will have. Shes not alone. This is about social norms. More middle-class parents are saying, Im not succumbing to the idea that the only acceptable education is an expensive one,Ž Sara Goldrick-Rab, a professor of higher education policy and sociology at Temple University, told the Times. A recent graduate from Valencia College in Orlando told the Times that he appreciated the small-size classrooms and direct interaction with teaching professors at his community college „ a refrain we have heard countless times from students at the College of Central Florida. Although Floridas universities remain a comparative bargain, tuition at CF is one-half the cost of, say, the University of Florida. In fact, CF was named this year as one of the 20 most affordable colleges to attend in the United States „ no small accomplishment, especially given the rising cost of higher education. Whats more, Floridas policy of ensuring that community college graduates can attend a state university provides students with a degree of certainty. The Legislature has, in recent years, invested significantly in the university system. In light of the financial benefits to students, families and the state, as well as national trends, we hope that the community college system will benefit from substantial investments by Florida in 2019 and beyond. This editorial appeared in a recent edition of the Ocala Star-BannerOUR OPINIONThe a ordable college option ANOTHER OPINION In July 1971, President Richard Nixon jolted the internati onal status quo „ and set diplomatic nerves worldwide fluttering „ by announcing he would visit China. Never in history, to our knowledge, have diplomatic relations progressed so fast from the Ping-Pong table to the Presidency,Ž this page breathlessly observed. Nixons bold overture reshaped the modern world and has paid vast dividends to Washington, to Beijing and to the general stability of global geopolitics. Now another potentially seismic diplomatic event takes shape: President Donald Trump plans to clink glasses with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Yes, the same dictator Trump taunted on Twitter as Little Rocket Man.Ž Trump hopes to strike a deal with the North Korean leader to relinquish his nuclear weapons arsenal. What could go wrong? Just about everything, critics say. Skeptics carp that Kim wins a huge propaganda bonanza just by sitting down with the Wests leader without first promising concessions in return. But Trump is taking a smart calculated risk. The main reason is that Trump doesnt have any better options to resolve this conundrum without military action. Several decades of patient American diplomacy, from the Clinton administration in the 1990s through those of Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, failed to achieve the key goal: to prevent North Korea from threatening the U.S. and the world with nuclear weapons. Kim now has up to 60, and he is intent on building more. He also has ballistic missiles that could hit U.S. cities, including Chicago, with a nuclear payload. The Trump-Kim summit is tentatively planned for late May or June in a location to be determined. Meanwhile, Trump is cleverly lowering expectations „ here and in Pyongyang „ about what, if anything, the meeting may yield. If I think that its a meeting that is not going to be fruitful, were not going to go,Ž he said. If the meeting, when Im there is not fruitful, I will respectfully leave the meeting.Ž Translation for Kim: Dont bring empty promises. The U.S. has been there and done that with your predecessors. Should the two hit it off, Trump has plenty to offer Kim in return for surrendering nukes. One bargaining chip is a final peace treaty with South Korea, which is also reportedly on the agenda of upcoming talks between Seoul and Pyongyang. Americans may be surprised to learn that the Korean War technically isnt over. Combat ended with an armistice signed in 1953. But negotiations over a peace treaty stalled. A treaty now could eventually bring normal relations and allow Pyongyang to escape Western sanctions. But will Kim pay the price? Or does he merely seek to upstage the master showman and keep building nukes? The hermetically sealed Hermit Kingdom is mysterious: Outsiders dont know its arcane internal politics. Could Trump dazzle the world with a foreign relations master stroke? Sure. Nixon went to China and returned triumphant. Not because he delivered a big deal, but because he started a diplomatic process that eventually opened China to the world. True, Trump is no savvy foreign relations pro like Nixon. Hes a deal-maker, blusterer and serial mind-changer. His diplomatic maneuvering is as subtle as a body slam. This matchup could yield nothing more than bombast and political theater. But we hope to write a post-summit headline like the one that appeared on this page after Nixon finished his 1972 visit: Yes, It Was Worth It.Ž From the Chicago Tribune and Tribune News Service.ANOTHER OPINIONTrump is taking a smart calculated risk with North Korea talksHAVE YOUR SAYWe welcome signed letters and guest columns.

I read it so you dont have to read it. Its not a bad read, especially if you like to know details of what goes on behind the headlines and are interested in how a bullied 12-year-old went on to run the worlds most important law enforcement machine. But I wish Comey had not written it, not yet. The book makes special counsel Robert Muellers job investigating Russian interference in our politics more difficult. It puts Comey down in the dirt in hand-to-hand combat with Trump. Its easy to see why Comey yearned to write his account of his awkward encounters with Trump, who demanded personal loyalty from someone with a job that must be independent. Trump went from promising Comey that after four years in the job, he (Comey) would keep his 10-year post to firing him without notice and, most recently, calling Comey a slime ball.Ž Yeah. So dignified. But Comey admittedly suffers from an annoying penchant for self-righteousness. (I know I can be wrong even when I am certain I am right.Ž) Yes, he wont admit he acted politically in announcing an investigation of Hillary Clinton just before the 2016 election. In Comeys words, I can be stubborn, prideful, overconfident and driven by ego,Ž which, in a strange juxtaposition, is remarkably like the current president. Comey, however, is not a liar. Trump is. Comey is overwhelmed with respect and love for the FBI and its traditions. Trump is not. Comey believes in public service. Trump believes in Trump. In this book, Comey decided to play by Trumps rules and ends up looking slightly pathetic. Noting hes been the subject of 50 Trump tweets, Comey told The Today Show,Ž Im like a breakup (Trump) cant get over.Ž One wishes Comey would follow Michelle Obamas mantra, When they go low, we go high.Ž Comey wrote the book to try to get even; he compares Trump to a mob boss. But Comey also wanted to proclaim: As a leadership principle, if leaders dont tell the truth or wont hear the truth from others, they cannot make good decisions, they cannot improve themselves and they cannot inspire trust among those who follow them.Ž Who am I to tell you about ethical leadership?Ž Comey asks rhetorically. After this book, well, yes. We are perplexed by Comeys visible effort to be bipartisan and take the high road while writing: Evil has an ordinary face. It laughs, it cries, it deflects, it rationalizes, it makes great pasta.Ž Comey concludes that the Trump era, with his disdain for civility, truth, tradition, dignity and honor, will be followed by a new appeal to traditional American values,Ž similar to new growth after a forest fire.

You should not do that. You run a risk.ŽFor Busch, though, it seemed appropriate, coming at the end of a week marked by ample discussion of his dustup with Dale Earnhardt Jr. at Richmond a decade ear-lier. That race, many believe, is what cemented Buschs reputation as NASCARs newest on-track villain.It was the 10-year anni-versary of you know what,Ž Busch explained, and he could see fans wearing his gear.On the track, Busch pulled away on a restart in a two-lap overtime sprint to the finish in NASCARs Cup Series.Busch, who started 32nd but quickly worked his way into contention, outran Chase Elliott and teammate Denny Hamlin for his fifth career victory at Richmond Raceway, the most among active drivers. The victory is his 46th overall and came from the deepest starting spot in the field of his career. It also is the deepest starting position for a winner at Richmond, sur-passing Clint Bowyer, who started 31st in 2008.The points leader also matched Kevin Harvicks three-race winning streak from earlier in the season.Pats on the back, everybody,Ž Busch said on his radio after taking the checkered flag.Busch pulls away at Richmond for 3rd Cup win a rowKyle Busch, center, celebrates in Victory Lane after winning the NASCAR Cup Series auto race at Richmond Raceway in Richmond, Va. on Saturday. [AP PHOTO/STEVE HELBER] The Associated PressSAN ANTONIO „ Andrew Landry won the Valero Texas Open on Sunday for his first PGA Tour victory, pulling away with early birdies and holding on with par saves.The 30-year-old Texan, busy at home in Austin with the recent birth of the familys first child, parred the final seven holes for a 4-under 68 and a two-stroke victory over Trey Mullinax and Sean OHair.It was obviously a tough week this week,Ž Landry said. Going into the last few weeks with the childbirth and just really getting back out.ŽLandry played at Arkansas after starring at Port Neches-Groves High School east of Houston. Many family mem-bers were at TPC San Antonio on Sunday.Everybody was out,Ž Landry said. It was pretty special to be able to snag a victory with everybody being here to share it.ŽLandry finished at 17-under 271. He earned $1,116,000 and a spot in the Masters next year.I didnt even really think about it, to be honest with you,Ž Landry said. Theres a lot of perks for a tour win and youve just got to continue to stay focused and not think about those kind of things.ŽLandry took a two-stroke lead to the par-5 18th after Mullinax chunked a flop shot Andrew Landry wins Texas OpenAndrew Landry kisses the trophy for the Valero Texas Open, Sunday in San Antonio.

ArmasThe Associated PressMILWAUKEE „ After seeing a 20-point second half lead slip away, Giannis Ante-tokounmpo came up with a huge play in the final seconds to save the Milwaukee Bucks from a devastating loss.Eric Bledsoe passed the ball right from the perimeter on Milwaukees final possession. Antetokounmpo moved down low to the left side of the basket and Malcolm Brogdon came across the lane for a driving hook shot in traffic that hit the rim.The 6-foot-11 Antetokounmpo was in perfect position to reach over Bostons Jayson Tatum to tip in the miss for the go-ahead basket with 5 seconds left for a 104-102 win on Sunday over the Boston Celtics. Their first-round playoff series is tied at two games apiece.Its a heck of play,Ž coach Joe Prunty said.Antetokounmpo finished with 27 points, while Khris Middleton added 23. Middle-ton also played in-your-face defense in the final seconds on Marcus Morris, forcing the Boston forward to miss a 14-footer at the buzzer.The Bucks two best players made the crucial players to hold on for a tense win vic-tory, another sign of maturity for the one of the leagues up-and-coming teams.Game 5 is Tuesday night in Boston.One of the most important things that we can carry from this game moving forward is that we stayed disciplined and we trusted one another,Ž Antetokounmpo said.It could just as easily have fallen apart for Milwaukee Giannis tip-in lifts Bucks over CelticsSee LANDRY, B3 See BUSCH, B3Milwaukee Bucks Giannis Antetokounmpo dunks during the “ rst half of Game 4 of an NBA basketball “ rstround playoff series against the Boston Celtics Sunday in Milwaukee.

[AP PHOTO/DARREN ABATE] By Tim ReynoldsThe Associated PressRussell Westbrook is averaging a triple-double, so he gets plenty of attention. Ricky Rubio just had a triple-double earning him some time in the head-lines. Donovan Mitchell has been great in his first three playoff games, so the fasci-nation with the rookie star is only growing.Its easy to notice those guys.Rudy Gobert should be getting noticed as well.Utah is taking a 2-1 lead into their Western Conference first-round series against Oklahoma City on Monday night, and Gobert is probably as responsible for the Jazz being in that position than anyone. Hes controlling the backboards, hes changing shots, hes thwarting Westbrook and hes showing why hes the likely Defensive Player of the Year.It makes the guards jobs a lot easier,Ž Mitchell said of the French safety net with the 7-foot-9 wingspan who protects the rim for the Jazz. You feel more secure on the wing. ... The whole season, Ive been saying if somebody gets by me, its like, All right, go ahead, try it. Because Ive tried it. And it doesnt work.ŽGame 4s: Jazz look for lead, Wolves aim to tieSee JAZZ, B3 See BUCKS, B3

Washington leads that series 3-2.Sean Couturier also had a hat trick for the Flyers, who havent won a Stan-ley Cup since 1975.Guentzel, not Sidney Crosby, Phil Kessel or the injured Evgeni Malkin, won the game for the Pen-guins with goals off costly Flyers turnovers, leading them to their ninth straight playoff series win.He tied the game at 4 with 54 seconds left in the second period off a Flyers turnover. He scored 30 seconds into the third for the lead off another giveaway, and sealed one more lopsided win over the Flyers with two goals 10 seconds apart late in the period.It was 2-2 after one period, 4-4 after two, and nothing was decided in the fiercest game of the series between the longstanding rivals until Guentzel took control. The Flyers lost all three games at home and not even a solid start could help them get out of the first round for the first time since 2012.Couturier had been the Flyers postseason savior, returning from a serious leg injury to score the Game 5 winner and then open Game 6 with his third goal of the series just 2:15 into the game.The Penguins, who won Games 3 and 4 in Philly, took aim on the road sweep with two straight goals. Crosby, naturally, tied the game when he knocked in a rebound off Kris Letangs point shot for his whopping sixth goal of the series. His goal was still being announced when Carl Hagelin made it 2-1 when he was left all alone in front of the net for the easy goal.Phillys defense was nonexistent and the Flyers had no bodies on Crosby and especially Hagelin on the gimme goals against Michal Neuvirth.Andrew MacDonald tied it 2-all on a sizzling shot. The defenseman briefly gave his team the spark needed to go toe-to-toe with the Pen-guins. Couturier scored his second of the game on a beautiful breakaway to open the second period and Scott Laughton scored on a long wrister and nearly pulled off a Lambeau Leap over the boards in celebration.Matt Murray should have stopped the goal „ the kind of bad goal usually allowed by the Flyers „ and the crowd derisively chanted his name.Patric Hornqvist scored his second of the series to pull the Penguins to 4-3.Pittsburgh Penguins Sidney Crosby, left, scores past Philadelphia Flyers Michal Neuvirth during the “ rst period in Game 6 of an NHL “ rst-round playoff series Sunday in Philadelphia. [TOM MIHALEK/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] Guentzel scores 4 goals to lead Penguins to Game 6 clinch

PAGE 13 | Monday, April 23, 2018 B3and bogeyed the short par-4 17th. Landry hit a 55-foot putt over a ridge to 3 feet for par on 17 and made an 8-footer on 18 after running a 50-foot downhill birdie try past.Mullinax closed with a 69 a day after breaking the AT&T Oaks Course record with a 62.Just a lot of confidence. I know my games there, Im play-ing really well,Ž Mullinax said. Give all credit to Andrew. He played really well today, rock steady. He was putting great, hitting great shots.Ž OHair shot 66.When Im good, Im really good, and when Im not good, Im not so good,Ž OHair said. Ive got to kind of get that a little bit better, but its always nice to compete and be in the hunt.ŽTied for the thirdround lead with Zach Johnson, Landry birdied the first three holes and added two more on Nos. 6 and 10. He bogeyed the par-4 11th before the closing par run.Made a couple putts and, unfortunately, Zach and Trey kind of had some hiccups there on the front nine and they didnt play it as well as I did,Ž Landry said. I think that that was really, really key to get-ting to where I am right now.ŽLandry won in his 32nd PGA Tour start. He earned his tour card last year on the Tour, and lost a playoff to Jon Rahm in Janu-ary in the CareerBuilder Challenge.It helps because you get yourself in that situ-ation and you continue to learn,Ž Landry said. Losing in that playoff when I was continuing to hit good shot after good shot, just not making any putts. Normally thats a strength of my game. Now here we are, a winner.ŽJimmy Walker was fourth at 14 under after his second 67.From where Ive been, its nice to see a lot of red numbers, nice to see putts going in, nice to be in contention,Ž said Walker, the 2015 winner. It felt good and I felt like I could get it done today and thats been a while.ŽJohnson had a 72 to finish fourth at 13 under. He won the event in 2008 and 2009, the last two times it was played at LaCantera. The 42-year-old Iowan is winless since the 2015 British Open.Its fun to compete against the so-called younger generation,Ž Johnson said. I still really do feel my best golf is in front of me. I know what Ive got to clean up.ŽJoaquin Niemann shot 67-67 on the weekend to finish sixth at 12 under in his pro debut. The 19-year-old from Chile was the top-ranked amateur in the world.I never thought I was going to finish how I played this week, but I cant be more happy than this,Ž Niemann said. Just try to keep it up and hope to play well for the next weeks.Ž LANDRYFrom Page B1The race went more than 350 laps with the only cautions coming after stages one and two, both won by defending race champion Joey Logano, who finished fourth. It remained clean until Ryan Blaney and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. crashed on Lap 353, bringing out the first on-track yellow.Busch took the lead after the next caution, brought out by the smok-ing car of Ryan Newman, when he was running second to Truex heading onto pit road and got out first. He also beat Hamlin and Harvick off the line on a restart with six to go, and then never let anyone contend when the race went back to green for the final time on lap 400.The pit crew tonight, they won this race for us,Ž Busch said. They got us off pit road first those last two times and got us where we needed to be.ŽThe three-race winning streak is the second of his career. The first came in 2015, when he won his only championship.I dont know if you can shoot for four in a row,Ž he said. Its hard to go to Talladega with the much of a winning streak and think that you can get to Victory Lane.ŽThe end was a bitter pill for Truex, who ran up front all night. He and Busch were dueling after a restart with 23 laps to go, and after Busch pulled away, Truex seemed to be closing ground until a spin by David Ragan brought out the yellow.All the front-runners pitted, and while Truexs team struggled mightily in the No. 1 pit stall, Truex could only watch as contender after contender beat him off pit road. He lost at least seven spots by the time NASCAR had sorted out the next restart starting order. It marked the 75th time he has raced on a short track in NASCARs premier series, and perhaps the best chance hes had in those 17 chances to come away with a victory, but instead he dropped to 0-for-75 on short tracks for his career. Hometown HamlinDenny Hamlin was dejected after Fridays practice sessions, saying his car was missing the mark badly.But he rallied in qualifying, earning the fourth starting spot, and rallied again in the race for the third place finish.I mean, probably would have taken it after yester-day,Ž Hamlin said of the finish. But we got close there. We just got better as the race went on. We were 13th, 15th, something like that in the first half of the race. Just werent very strong. We just made some really good adjustments that got us rolling towards the front, especially on long runs. We got to the top five, then we had some pit stops there.Ž Whered he come from?Seven-time series champion Jimmie Johnson was a non-factor all night, starting 17th and not moving forward at all until caution flags started flying for on-track incidents. Then, he steadily improved his position, finishing a remarkable sixth.Were taking steps forward,Ž said Johnson, who remains winless and is just 15th in the points standings after one-fourth of the schedule has been completed. Laugh-ing, he added: Id love to take a jump forward, but were definitely taking steps forward.Ž Still chasingChase Elliott started second seeking his first career victory, but instead finished second, his 25th top-five finish.The son of Bill Elliott ran outside the top 10 for much of the night, so he wasnt complaining about this finish.Yeah, just very fortu-nate circumstances there at the end for us with the way the restarts went,Ž Elliott said. Having a short run there at the end was definitely in our favor, so it was nice to be on the good end of things for the first time in a while.Ž They said itI think its easier to win the Powerball than to win at Talladega.Ž „ Kyle Busch. Up nextThe series heads from consecutive short tracks to the longest, 2.66-mile Talladega in Alabama. BUSCHFrom Page B1 Andrew Landry tees off at the “ fth hole during the “ nal round of the Valero Texas Open golf tournament, Sunday in San Antonio. [AP PHOTO/MICHAEL THOMAS] after losing a 20-point lead with 7:37 left in the third quarter.Jaylen Brown had 34 points for the Celtics, while Tatum added 21. Tatums 18-footer with 52 seconds left gave the Celtics a brief 100-99 lead.He just couldnt hold off Antetokounmpo on the other end for the decisive tip-in.The disappointing end for the Celtics overshadowed their spirited rally from a 65-45 deficit with 7:37 left in the third quarter. Play got chippy and the Celtics limited the Bucks transi-tion game.They came up one basket short at the end.Antetokounmpo made a great tip-in and he was battling for the ball. Thats what great players do,Ž coach Brad Stevens said.Both teams traded clutch buckets down the stretch.After Tatums long jumper, Brogdon hit a tran-sition 3 from the corner for a 102-100 lead with 33 seconds left. Al Horford followed with two foul shots to tie the game at 102 with 29 seconds remaining.They couldnt send the game into overtime. Morris bent over in frustration near the Boston bench after his fadeaway hit the rim.We got the look we wanted ... Its a shot that (Morris) can make 10 out of 10 times,Ž Brown said. It didnt go in tonight. So Game 5, keep moving forward.ŽSPURS 103, WARRIORS 90: Manu Ginobili scored 10 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter of what could have been his “ nal home game with the Spurs, and San Antonio beat the Golden State Warriors to avoid a series sweep as coach Gregg Popovich remained out following the death of his wife. LaMarcus Aldridge had 22 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Spurs, but they were willed to the “ nish by the 40-yearold Ginobili, who has said he will decide in the offseason if he will return for a 17th season. Kevin Durant had 34 points and 13 rebounds for the Warriors, who can wrap up the series in Game 5 at home Tuesday. Popovich missed his second straight game after his wife, Erin, passed away Wednesday following a prolonged illness. Lead assistant Ettore Messina led the Spurs again, but to a much different showing than in Game 3. BUCKSFrom Page B1 Westbrook probably would agree: Hes 1 for 7 in this series with Gobert waiting at the rim for him.Theres two Game 4s on the schedule Monday, with Houston at Minnesota leading off before the Oklahoma City-Utah game. The Rockets fell in Game 3 to the Timberwolves on Saturday, but still lead that series 2-1.Westbrook is not happy, and the reigning NBA MVP wasted little time in vowing that things will be different in Game 4. He was talking about slowing down Rubio, but he might be better served getting himself going again. Going back to the regular season, Westbrook hasnt shot better than 40 percent in any of his last six games „ the worst such streak of his career.Heres a look at Mon-days games: Rockets at TimberwolvesRockets lead 2-1. Game 4, 8 p.m. EDT, TNT. NEED TO KNOW: The Timberwolves bounced back from a 20-point loss in Game 2 with a selloutcrowd-inspired 16-point victory over the Rockets in Game 3 that was the franchises “ rst win in the playoffs since 2004. Jimmy Butler had 28 points and Karl-Anthony Towns had 18 points and 16 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who were more aggressive than they were in Games 1 and 2. I felt like they outworked us, and that should never happen,Ž Rockets guard Gerald Green said. KEEP AN EYE ON: The Rockets shooting 3-pointers. They needed 41 attempts to make 15 behind the arc in Game 3, as many as the Wolves swished in 27 tries. Harden was just 3 for 8, his rainbows often drifting to the left, as the Wolves kept up what has been a better-than-usual defensive performance in this series. Were just making it harder on them, making them take tough shots and just trying to “ nd ways to stop a high-powered offense,Ž Towns said. PRESSURE IS ON: Rockets center Clint Capela. After a 24-poin/t, 12-rebound production in Game 1, Capela had only seven points on six shots in Game 3. On the other end of the court, Towns “ nally got going after two bad games thanks in part to Capelas defense. The Rockets could use a strong response from the Swiss standout in the attempt to keep the Wolves from tying the series. INJURY UPDATE: Butler, who missed a total of 21 games this season due to trouble with his right knee, clutched his left ankle in pain after twisting it late in the “ rst half of Game 3. He didnt miss any time, though, and didnt even acknowledge the injury when asked about it in his postgame interview. At the end of the day if you tell your mind it doesnt hurt, it doesnt,Ž Butler said.Thunder at JazzJazz leas 2-1. Game 4, 10:30 p.m. EDT, TNT. NEED TO KNOW: Utah has won each of its last “ ve “ rst-round series as the No. 5 seed, and the Jazz are halfway to extending that streak. The crowd in Salt Lake City was extremely loud on Saturday and will likely be again on Monday. The Thunder are 5-6 in their last 11 games, and no one needs to remind them of how low the success rate is for teams that go down 3-1 in a series. JAZZFrom Page B1

DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, "Chris," and I were planning on moving in together. We went apartment hunting and created a realistic budget we could both maintain. He was the one who brought up the idea and also the one who pushed it. Chris is an only child. His parents love him so much I think they will do anything to keep him in their house for as long as they can. (He's 21.) I know I must respect his parents, but I also know Chris really wants to be out on his own but is afraid of them. I want the best for him and for us. How should I handle this situation without harming the relationship between him and his parents, or me and his parents as well? -WANTING IT IN WISCONSIN DEAR WANTING IT: Because Chris is an adult, asking him when he DOES think the two of you can live together would be a fair question. However, if it's one he can't answer, you must realize that he isn't independent enough to cut the umbilical cord, and you should plan for your future accordingly. DEAR ABBY: The rst 20 years of our marriage were wonderful. My husband was kind, sweet and generous. Now he is angry most of the time, and spews rude and hurtful things at me. When I ask him what's wrong and suggest marriage counseling, he says I am too sensitive or I take things wrong, and there's nothing the matter with our marriage. All I know is, this is not the man I fell in love with, and I don't know how much longer I can tolerate the way he's treating me. I love my husband. I don't want to divorce him, but I also don't want to continue living this way. Please help. -GONE WRONG IN OHIO DEAR GONE WRONG: What your husband is doing is cruel, and for him to tell you you're imagining it, frankly, irritates ME. I can't x what's gone wrong in your marriage, but I'm glad to point you in the right direction. Visit a marriage and family therapist without him and describe what's been happening. Whether the insight you gain will save your marriage is anybody's guess. However, it may give you the strength to do what is best for YOU, in the present and in the long run. DEAR ABBY: My wife and I walk the mall most days, and our route usually takes us through a bookstore where we enjoy coffee in the coffee shop attached to it. Every time we go we see one particular couple sitting there reading the books and magazines but never bothering to buy anything. The place is not a library. These bookstores are striving to stay alive and make a prot. I'm torn about whether to approach the couple, the management, or let them continue abusing the generosity of the store by never making a purchase. -MALL PATROL DEAR MALL PATROL: Do not take it upon yourselves to shame that couple, which could lead to an ugly argument. Your efforts would be better spent if you talk to the store manager about what you have observed and let that person handle it from there. (For all we know, the "offenders" may be Mr. Barnes and Ms. Noble.) Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

In 1969, Sirhan Sirhan was sentenced to death for assassinating New York Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. (The sentence was later reduced to life imprisonment.) In 1971, hundreds of Vietnam War veterans opposed to the conict protested by tossing their medals and ribbons over a wire fence in front of the U.S. Capitol. In 1988, Greek cycling champion Kanellos Kanellopoulos pedaled the human-powered aircraft Daedalus over the Aegean Sea for nearly four hours.
