[CONTRIBUTED PHOTO] By Collin Breaux 747-5081 | @PCNHCollinB PARKER „ Saturday, May 19, was one of the best toursŽ Tony Salvo ever went on.Salvo „an Air Force veteran who lives in Callaway and is the Commander for VFW Post 8205 in Parker „ went to Washington, D.C., on an Honor Flight. The Honor Flight Network is a nonprofit that flies World War II, Korean and Vietnam veterans for a trip through the nations capital to visit military memorials after a veteran applies for a trip.It was absolutely incred-ible,Ž Salvo, who hasnt visited Washington much outside of driving through, said. We were treated like kings fromthe second we showed up at the airport to when we got in our cars to drive home. There was nothing we could want for. Everywhere we went we were treated with respect and gratitude.ŽSalvo was one of 80 veterans on the trip from Tallahassee to D.C. which included a police-escorted bus rideto the nations capital from the airport and meals. The veterans were thanked by passerbys when they passed through the air-port, Salvo said.During the trip, Salvo toured Washington, saw FBI buildings and the White House and visited Arlington National Cemetery and the Iwo Jima Memorial. He also glimpsed the Pentagon and visited the Vietnam Veterans Memo-rial, which hit home for Salvo since he served during that war.Air Force veteran tours Washington memorials on Honor Flight By Richard Gardiner The Associated PressIn the years following the bitter Civil War, a former Union general took a holiday originated by former Confederates and helped spread it across the entire country.The holiday was Memorial Day, and this years commem-oration on May 28 marks the 150th anniversary of its official nationwide observance. The annual commemoration was born in the former Confeder-ate States in 1866 and adopted by the United States in 1868. It is a holiday in which the nation honors its military dead.Gen. John A. Logan, who headed the largest Union veter-ans fraternity at that time, the Grand Army of the Republic, is usually credited as being the originator of the holiday.Yet when General Logan established the holiday, he acknowledged its genesis among the Unions former enemies, saying, It was not too late for the Union men of the nation to follow the example of the people of the South.ŽCities and towns across America have for more than a century claimed to be the holidays birthplace, butsome have sifted through the myths and half-truths and uncovered the authentic story of how this holiday came into being.

[ERYN DION/THE NEWS HERALD] By Eryn Dion |47-5069 | @PCNHErynDion edion@pcnh.comPANAMA CITY „ Star-ing down the barrel of Subtropical Storm Alberto, it was clear Sunday that Panama City Beachs lucky streak was in danger of running out.After getting through last years particularly active hurricane season largely unscathed, an overnight shift in the storms track issued by the National Hurricane Center put the vacation destination brim-ming with Memorial Day Weekend tourists in the crosshairs.Weve been through tornadoes before,Ž Daniel Gass, visiting from northeastern Alabama, commented while on the beach with his family. This isnt much different.ŽWere from Florida,Ž Shane Gass, Daniels relative who lives in Chipley, added. We have a party every time the wind blows.ŽAs the first drops from Alberto began to fall Sunday onto surfers out to catch the impressive storm surf and the locals and tourists alike gathered on the beach to watch, much was uncertain. The storm, at first not expected until Monday afternoon, picked up the pace as it moved through the Gulf, pushing its expected arrival timeto Monday morning.Then, by Sunday afternoon, the advisories changed yet again, and Alberto was projected to be an afternoon arrival after all. Following the lead of Gov. Rick Scott, the county and the city of Springfield issued states of emergency.Emergency officials agreed the storm would primarily be a rain event, but just how much rain was anyones guess. Bay County Chief of Emergency Services Mark Bowen said he heard as little 4 inches up to as much as 18 inches.

** The News Herald | Monday, May 28, 2018 A3


** A4 Monday, May 28, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Andrews Taylor The Associated PressWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump has warned Congress that he will never sign another foot-tall, $1 tril-lion-plus government-wide spending bill like the one he did in March. His message to lawmakers in both parties: Get your act together before the next budget lands on my desk.After a brief government shutdown earlier this year, Democrats and Republicans now agree on the need for bud-geting day-to-day operations of government by the oldfashioned way. That means weeks of open debate and amendments that empower rank-and-file lawmakers, rather than concentrating power in the hands of a few leaders meeting in secret.But Capitol Hills dysfunction is so pervasive that even the most optimistic predictions are for only a handful of the 12 annual spending bills to make it into law by Oct. 1, the start of the new budget year. The rest may get bundled together into a single, massive measure yet again.The worst-case scenario? A government shutdown just a month before Election Day, Nov. 6, as Republicans and Democrats fight for control of the House and possibly the Senate. Trump is agitating for more money for his longpromised border wall with Mexico. So far, he has been frustrated by limited success on that front.We need the wall. Were going to have it all. And again, that wall has started. We got $1.6 billion. We come up again (in) September,Ž Trump said in a campaign-style event in Michigan last month. If we dont get border security, well have no choice. Well close down the country because we need border security.ŽAt stake is the funding for daily operations of government agencies. A budget deal this year reversed spending cuts that affected military readiness and put a crimp on domestic agencies. A $1.3 trillion spending bill swept through Congress in March, though Trump entertained last-minute second thoughts about the measure and promised he would not sign a repeat.The demise of the annual appropriations process took root after Republicans took over the House in 2011 and is part of a broader breakdown on Capi-tol Hill. The yearly bills need bipartisan support to advance, which has grated on tea party lawmakers. GOP leaders such as House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and his predecessor as speaker, Ohio Republican John Boehner, have preferred to focus on other priorities.Ryan did throw his weight behind a two-year budget agreement this year that set an overall spending limit of $1.3 trillion for both 2018 and 2019, citing a need to boost the Pentagon.That, in theory, makes it easier to get the appropriations process back on track. But in the GOP-controlled House, where Democratic votes are generally needed to pass the bills, Democrats are complaining that Republicans have shortchanged domestic agencies such as the Department of Health and Human Services and the Envi-ronmental Protection Agency.Thats not the case in the Senate, where the new chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Alabama Republican Richard Shelby, is determined to get the system working again. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York is on board, as is Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., himself a decades-long veteran of that powerful committee.We want this to work,Ž said Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., who criticized the GOP-controlled House for continuing to pack legislation with poison pills.Ž Obstacles remain, however.For starters, floor debates could lead to votes on contentious issues such as immigration, the border wall, gun control and others that some lawmakers might hope to avoid.Democrats are wary of Republicans trying to jam through the Pentagon spend-ing bill before dealing with some agencies.And Trump could blow up the whole effort at any time.Trump is prone to threaten-ing government shutdowns on Twitter or when he riffs in public, and then backing off when bills are delivered to him.Budget battle brews as Trump threatens shutdownThe Senate has kicked off its annual attempt to pass government funding bills. Success is hardly assured, but President Donald Trump has warned Congress that he will never sign another foot-tall, $1 trillion-plus government-wide spending bill, and he insists that hell get full funding for his border wall. [AP FILE PHOTO] Members of the Army 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment, The Old Guard, place ” ags at the headstone of fallen military members during its annual Flags In ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, May 24, 2018, in Arlington, Va. [CLIFF OWEN/AP] By Tim Reynolds The Associated PressMIAMI „ Rodney McGruder went home for Memorial Day weekend, for reasons that didnt include barbecues and beach time.He paid tribute to people he never met.The Miami Heat guard was part of an NBA contingent that volunteered to spend time in the Wash-ington area with about 500 children who are part of the Tragedy Assistance Pro-gram for Survivors „ TAPS, for short „ over the solemn holiday weekend, trying to help continue the support for families who lost loved ones serving in the military.The itinerary included tours of the Pentagon, a Jr. NBA clinic, roundtable discussions, mentoring sessions, grief counseling and a trip to Arlington National Cemetery to meet some of the service members who guard the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier around the clock. Those guards walk 21 steps in one direction, turn and face the tomb for 21 seconds, and then walk 21 steps in the other direction and repeat the process.We learned so much about the 21 steps, protect-ing the Unknown Soldier tomb, so just being there and seeing the detail that they have at their job, much respect to them,Ž said McGruder, whose Maryland home is only about 20 min-utes from Arlington. It was breathtaking just seeing all the different stones. It was tough. It was tough.ŽNew York Knicks guard Jarrett Jack „ a military kid growing up „ also helped represent the NBA during the weekend events, along with Dallas assistant coach Jamahl Mosley, Sac-ramento assistant Bryan Gates, Portland assistant David Vanterpool and retired WNBA player Iciss Tillis. Leading the group was Gen. Martin Dempsey, the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff who now works as an adviser to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver.Im very proud of the way the NBA has reached out to military servicemen and women and how that has expanded to what were doing here this weekend, which is outreach to the survivors of the fallen,Ž Dempsey said. Its fan-tastic. What happens is we cant take away the grief and the memory of the loss, but what we can do is layer positive memories on top of it. And so these athletes and coaches being involved, its amazing.ŽThe kids who were part of the weekend played in a basketball clinic, but most of the questions to the NBA players and coaches had nothing to do with the game.McGruder said many wanted to know how hes dealt with loss „ not on the basketball court „ and how he copes.You realize right away that these kids are going through some pretty tough things,Ž McGruder said. One of the toughest ques-tions came from a tough female who wanted to know if Ive gone through some-thing like that. I explained to her that my mother lost her mother very young, so its not really the same but you share how youve been through similar disadvantages.ŽMcGruder said he came away with a deeper appreci-ation of what Memorial Day means, and Dempsey „ a lifelong fan of the game and someone who Mike Krzyze-wski used during his tenure as coach of the U.S. national team to teach the games biggest stars about what it means to represent the country „ thinks the NBA players have an important message for kids on week-ends like this.I think with the coun-try kind of more connected technologically than ever before, but maybe pulling itself apart more than ever before, I think sports have a huge role to play to bring a bit of leadership and maybe conscience,Ž Dempsey said. Im proud to be part of that.ŽNBA group volunteers with grieving kids over Memorial DayBy Mark Thiessen and Mari Yamaguchi The Associated PressANCHORAGE „ William Roy Dovers memory of the World War II battle is as sharp as it was 75 years ago, even though its been long forgotten by most everyone else.His first sergeant rousted him from his pup tent around 2 a.m. when word came the Japanese were attacking and had maybe even gotten behind the American front line, on a desolate, unforgiving slab of an occupied island in the North Pacific.He was shouting, Get up! Get out!Ž Dover said.Dover and m ost of the American soldiers rushed to an embankment on what became known as Engineer Hill, the last gasp of the Japanese during the Battle of Attu fought 75 years ago this month on Attu Island in Alaskas Aleutian chain.I had two friends that were too slow to get out,Ž the 95-year-old Alabama farmer recalled. They both got bayonetted in their pup tents.ŽJoseph Sasser, then a skinny 20-year-old from Cartharge, Mississippi, also found himself perched against the berm on Engineer Hill when a captain with a rifle took up a position about 10 feet (3 meters) away.I noticed about after 30 minutes or so, he was awfully quiet,Ž Sasser said. We checked to see if he had a pulse and if he was alive, and he was not.We didnt even know he had been shot,Ž said Sasser, also 95.American forces reclaimed remote Attu Island on May 30, 1943, after a 19-day campaign that is known as World War IIs forgotten battle. Much of the fighting was hand-to-hand, waged in dense fog and winds of up to 120 mph (193 kph).The battle for the Aleutian island was one of the deadliest in the Pacific in terms of the percentage of troops killed. Nearly all the Japanese forces, estimated at about 2,500 soldiers, died with only 28 sur-vivors. About 550 or so U.S. soldiers were killed.American forces, many poorly outfitted for Alaska weather and trained in California for desert combat, recaptured Attu 11 months after the Japanese took it and a nearby island, Kiska. It was the only WWII battle fought on North American soil.The Japanese staged a last-ditch, desperate offensive May 29 at Engineer Hill.Japanese soldiers surprise American forces on Attu with a fanatical charge out of the mountains,Ž recounts an Associated Press chronology of WWII events in 1943. Savage fighting rages throughout the day and into the following night.About 200 Japanese soldiers died in the assault, and the remaining 500 or so held gre-nades to their bellies and pulled the pins. It was the first official case of gyokusai,Ž a Japanese euphemism for annihilation or mass suicide in the name of Emperor Hirohito, which increasingly occurred in other Japanese battlefields.Tomimatsu Takahashi told Japanese public television net-work NHK in 2010 he was being treated for a bullet wound when the order for the final charge came. I was going to die, I thought,Ž he said. But as he headed out to fight, he collapsed, likely because he hadnt eaten in days. He was captured and sent to several mainland POW camps „ including in Seattle, San Francisco and Chicago „ before he returned home to Japans Iwate prefecture in 1947.His family already had a funeral and grave for him.I felt so relieved to be home,Ž he said. But I never thought I was lucky to be alive. I thought I survived because I was not lucky. I felt I was not supposed to come back, because those who went to war were not sup-posed to come back, and thats what we were taught.ŽAfter the battle, Dover said things went back to normal for the American soldiers „ except one thing: Somebody had to bury those Japanese.ŽDuring the war, the U.S. Army buried the Japanese sol-diers bodies with care, built a memorial, set up a grave post and paid respects to the spirits, said Nobuyuki Yamazaki, whose grandfather died on Attu.Yamazaki was among a delegation of Japanese soldiers descendants who attended a 75th anniversary celebration this month in Anchorage. The families have formally petitioned the Japanese government to have the remains returned, Anchorage television station KTVA reported.Japanese people find great comfort when the remains of the Japanese are buried in our homeland,Ž Yamazaki said.75 years later, forgotten WWII battle haunts soldiers


** The News Herald | Monday, May 28, 2018 A5


** A6 Monday, May 28, 2018 | The News Heraldthe South, a feature of the holiday emerged that made awareness, admiration and eventually imitation of it spread quickly to the North.During the inaugural Memorial Day observances which were conceived in Columbus, Georgia, many Southern partici-pants … especially women … decorated graves of Con-federate soldiers as well as, unexpectedly, those of their former enemies who fought for the Union.Shortly after those first Memorial Day observances all across the South, news-paper coverage in the North was highly favorable to the ex-Confederates.The action of the ladies on this occasion, in bury-ing whatever animosities or ill-feeling may have been engendered in the late war towards those who fought against them, is worthy of all praise and commendation,Ž wrote one paper.On May 9, 1866, the Cleveland Daily Leader lauded the Southern women during their first Memorial Day.The act was as beauti-ful as it was unselfish, and will be appreciated in the North.ŽThe New York Commercial Advertiser, recognizing the magnani-mous deeds of the women of Columbus, Georgia, echoed the sentiment. Let this incident, touch-ing and beautiful as it is, impart to our Washing-ton authorities a lesson in conciliation.Ž Power of a poemTo be sure, this sentiment was not unanimous. There were many in both parts of the U.S. who had no interest in conciliation.But as a result of one of these news reports, Fran-cis Miles Finch, a Northern judge, academic and poet, wrote a poem titled The Blue and the Gray.Ž Finchs poem quickly became part of the American literary canon. He explained what inspired him to write it:It struck me that the South was holding out a friendly hand, and that it was our duty, not only as conquerors, but as men and their fellow citizens of the nation, to grasp it.ŽFinchs poem seemed to extend a full pardon to the South: They banish our anger forever when they laurel the graves of our deadŽ was one of the lines.Almost immediately, the poem circulated across America in books, magazines and newspapers. By the end of the 19th century, school children everywhere were required to memorize Finchs poem. The ubiquitous publication of Finchs rhyme meant that by the end of 1867, the southern Memorial Day holiday was a familiar phenomenon throughout the entire, and recently reunited, country.General Logan was aware of the forgiving sentiments of people like Finch. When Logans order establishing Memorial Day was published in various news-papers in May 1868, Finchs poem was sometimes appended to the order. MEMORIALFrom Page A1


** The News Herald | Monday, May 28, 2018 A7Salvo has never visited the Vietnam Memorial before. The war still stirs up strong emotions, and he was concerned about what he would feel.Other veterans, he said, have similar experiencesbecausethey recognize names on the wall or know someone who died then.Having a group of us there made it a little bit easier,Ž Salvo said. It made it easier to go than if you went solo.ŽVeteran and children service groups greeted the veterans during their tour, with the childrens groups handing out cards thanking the flight guests for their service. The veterans touring Wash-ington also got challenge coins and volunteers and medical professionals were on hand to help the veterans during the trip.I would recommend any of these World War, Korean or Vietnam veterans really need to look into going,Ž Salvo, who took over 100 pictures during the trip, said. Some guys will say, Im too old or tired. Theres nothing to worry about whatsoever. They take care of everything. You dont have to walk a step if you dont want to.Ž VETERANFrom Page A1 During a 3 p.m. storm update at the Emergency Operations Center, Bowen said the latest hed heard was 12 inches.The truth is, we cannot know yet,Ž Bowen said. Theres an awful lot of weather with this storm.ŽWhat was known was that Alberto would not bring the life threatening surge seen in other storms last year, with Bowen saying he expected the tides to be about a foot higher than normal, and that the storms arrival wasnt coinciding with high tide, which would spare the county the brunt of the storm surge. Tropical Storm-force winds would also be likely, persisting through the night and potentially lasting through Monday evening.As the first bands from Alberto reached the area, Bowen said he expected the conditions to rapidly deteriorateŽ late Sunday and into Monday morning.With the potential for torrential rain and tropical force winds, Deane Bozeman School was opened as an emer-gency shelter at 6 p.m. for the general population and special needs population, and Bowen urged anyone in a low lying area or who didnt feel safe to make the trip before the weather turned and it was unsafe to be on the roads.Double red flags were flying on all Bay County beaches Sunday, with Bay County Sheriff Tommy Ford saying he expected to leave those flags up until Tuesday. Despite the water being closed, Bay County life-guards, Panama City Beach and Surf and Bay County Sheriff's Depu-ties were observed riding up and down the beaches warning groups of people to stay out of the water.As with every storm, the rumor mill started early about the bridges possibly closing. Ford said Florida Highway Patrol, who monitors the local bridges, was trying a new approach this year. Rather than just closing all bridges once winds hit a sustained 40 miles per hour, Ford said FHP will start monitor-ing conditions at that 40 mph mark and make the decision to close on a bridge-by-bridge basis. At the time of the 3 p.m. press conference, Ford said he couldnt know whether that was likely to happen, but locals and visitors should moni-tor the local news media and government social media sites for the latest information.I encourage everyone to watch this storm very, very closely,Ž Bowen said.Despite it being one of the busiest travel weekends, Ford and Bowen made it clear that travel would become dangerous as conditions deteriorated. Law enforcement would be out on the roads, but no one else should be join-ing them.Sustained tropical storm force winds are dangerous and they should stay off the road,Ž Bowen said.They should not be traveling.ŽFor the latest information about Alberto or any emergency situation, Bay County officials urged people to sign up for AlertBay at ALBERTOFrom Page A1

Letters may be edited for clarity and brevity. Guest columns of up to 600 words may be submitted as well. Write: Letters to the editor, The News Herald, 501 W. 11th St., Panama City, FL 32401 Email: LETTER TO THE EDITOR SQUALL LINE ANOTHER VIEW Tim Thompson | Publisher Will Glover | Managing Editor Mike Cazalas | Editor PANAMA CITY VIEWPOINTSToday, weare three months away from primary elections throughout Florida. In August, we begin our process for electing a new governor, members of local school boards, county commissioners and a variety of other posts that are important to keeping our democracy running. As we celebrate Memorial Day, we honor those who have fallen while trying to protect the way of life we cherish in the United States. These men and women gave their lives for our country, to keep us free, to protect our rights and to make sure the American way of life continues. Its because of those who gave their lives that our country has survived almost 250 years, that our democracy has continued to thrive, that we have fair elections, that you get to vote. As we approach Election Day, theNews Heraldwill do its part to inform the electorate of the goals and beliefs of our candidates. We want an educated public to make educated decisions. We want you to know who you are voting for and why. We want you to make the correct decision for you. As we get closer to November, welltalk aboutthe 13 amendments proposed for the Constitution of the State of Florida. The Constitutional Revision Commission meets only once every 20 years to offer such a large set of amendments to the state document, so there is no next year for making the right decisions with these items. But no matter what we do, the election will start and end with you. You start by registering to vote. You end by showing up on Election Day. And that includes primary elections. The voter registration deadline for the primary election is July 30. Registering to vote is easy. You simply can visit www. if you dont want to get off the couch, put down your coffee or get out of bed. You also can make it part of errand running when getting a new drivers license or Florida identification card. Anywhere you can get a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission permit, you can also register to go to the polls. You also can register at any supervisor of elections office. Voting not enough for you? Maybe you should be running for office. The qualifying period for Florida opens June 4, and potential candidates have until June 22 to qualify for most state and local offices. New faces, ideas and backgrounds can rejuvenate an area. If you feel you are best to represent your constituents, throw your hat in the ring. Elections should be something we look forward to each year. Its our opportunity as a people to make decisions about how we are governed. Your voice lives in your vote. You cant help make America great againŽ or resistŽ without showing up Aug. 28. Well do our part by telling you where the candidates stand. Do your part by showing up. This editorial first appeared in the Daily News, a News Herald sister paper with GateHouse Media. Honor the fallen by participating in our democracyAt the last minute, with an unfortunate combination of bad news and gratuitous drama, the divorced father was unable to attend his daughters wedding. Who hasnt heard a version of that story? Its always something with these broken families, as we love to call them. As if every intact family were not a collection of negotiated crevices and mended cracks. These fairy tales about marriage run deep. This is where it gets complicated. This particular wedding would be watched by nearly 30 million people in America alone, and the bride was about to become not princess for a day but a princess for real. We could work up only the most temporary bout of sympathy in light of that, even if her fathers heart „ the health of it, understand „ was at issue. After all weve been through lately, this is the love story we wanted. So we agreed to pretend its not ridiculous in 2018 to have worried, for even a moment, about who would walk a 36-year-old woman down the aisle. Part One of the happy ending, totally nailed. The brides fans heaved a collective sigh of relief and turned their concern to one of Americas favorite objects of curiosity: the single mother. In this case, she was the single mother of the bride. Doria Ragland was alone „ oh no! „and a different shade of proud in a sea of pale faces. Surely, strangers speculated, she was girding herself for the swell of pity. Her arm would not be hinged to a man, any man. How would she do it? Shes been divorced since 1987, so shes had some practice at this. Shes her daughters hero, too, but that didnt seem to stem the wave of social media memes lamenting her condition. Finally, Lesle Honore, a single mother of three in Chicago, stepped in on social media and then spoke to press. She had watched Ragland, who was dressed in that pretty mint green, smiling and waving as she sat next to her daughter, Meghan Markle, on their way to Windsor Castle. Honores single-mother pride bubbled up. Its not always sad and somber,Ž Honore told Chicago Tribune columnist Mary Schmich. Sometimes its a celebration of having made it. You stand there by yourself, and you know youre not completely alone. You stand shoulder to shoulder with other women „ and men too. ... You do it to the best of your abilities, knowing there will be failures. For just a little while, Doria Ragland was that strong, bright light for every single mother who has ever wondered how this will all turn out. But lets not get too caught up in that limiting vision of her as the proud and dignified mother. Shes so much more than that. Markle gave us a glimpse in her glorious 2014 blog post about her mother, titled Love LetterŽ: Dreadlocks. Nose ring. Yoga instructor. Social worker. Free spirit. Lover of potato chips & lemon tarts. And if the DJ cues Al Greens soul classic Call Me, just forget it. She will swivel her hips into the sweetest little dance youve ever seen, swaying her head and snapping her fingers to the beat like shes been dancing since the womb. And you will smile. You wont be able to help it. You will look at her and you will feel joy. Im talking about my mom.Ž Save your pity, dear strangers. Happy ending, complete.A fairy tale ending for a single mother Connie Schultz Leavee the bridge open to local residents My husband and I are in our 80s and have lived near the Cook Bayou Bridge (County 2298 bridge) for 41 years. The bridge closure rerouting means that we have to drive towards Allanton, then turn and drive on to Old Allanton Road until it connects with CR22. That is a very long detour to have to take for ten months just to get to town. Why wouldnt the Public Works officials consider leaving the bridge open to local residents and closing it to all trucks? I would be far less disruptive to our lives and surely it would be safe enough for trave ling over it only in cars.Mary Lou Lewis, Panama CityLet me say this one more time: the 1st amendment protects you from the govt stifling your freedom of speech; NOT a private company/corporation. If you work for a private company and they dont like what you say/do, they can fire/fine you. Got it? R-e-a-d the constitution! When I see Bill Nelson, I see Nancy Pelosi. Professional sports is about buying the top players who pretend they really care about your city. Obama enabled a nuclear N Korea and Iran. The most feckless President ever. Im Boycotting the National Anthem until our Leaders dose something about Shooting in School. Another School Shooting, another White man. Go Trump MAGA. I gave up on the NFL last year. Just turned 70. Man, Im up there with Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. The media is always two steps behind President Trump. Washington bureaucrats depise ordinary hard working Americans. Kim Jung Un is the new hero of Democrats. All of Bay county wait with great anticipation, my next brilliant squall. Lying to the corrupt FBI should not be a felony. Yes I cancelled my NETFLIX account. No Obama for me. Democrats are lemmings, Republicans are cowards. The Clintons and Obamas have used the presidency to enrich themselves. Pence touts a colony on the moon. That would be a good place for Trumps new office. Wienstein will walk. Friend of Bill, Hillary, and Barrack. Study the French Revolution to understand the perils of a corrupt media. To bad that the truth is politically incorrect in America. If youre on Facebook, youre supporting a left wing corrupt facist institition. See and support the movie, Roe v Wade, the untold story. Media will try to squash this truthful film. Death, Judgment, Heaven, Hell. Think about it. Adam Putnam has failed the adult test with his liberal elite ads. His self imposed imaturity will be his downfall. Why is everything turned into a Race issue? VA local Healthcare STINKS! For sure! Ask me! Wow, he sends a lovers letter to Kim Jon Un saying meeting is off, now he flips, as he does daily, and is begging for the meeting. Trump wants the Nobel Peace Prize but will never get it. He is a conman. Black athletes are not protesting the flag as liar Trump and GOP say. They are protesting police brutality in black communities as is their right and what most veterans served to protect. I seen The Weather Channel on PCB Friday. This is NOT good for heads in bedsŽ.

The last known sighting was in October 2016, when Reese Southerlin, a jet ski operator at Paradise Watersports, filmed one about 300 yards off the coast in front of Summerhouse Condominiums.It was the biggest thing Ive ever seen,Ž Southerlin said at the time. It definitely was a oncein-a-lifetime experience.Ž Whale sharks are the worlds largest fish, reaching up to about 40 feet, according to National Geographic. They can be found in all tropical seas but are not often spotted close to shore.Carpet feeders, the whales eat mostly plankton and rarely bother the fish they tend to school alongside them.As of 2016, they are consid-ered an endangered species, after the most recent stock assessment showed popula-tion declines likely caused by fishing and boat strikes. They are fished for in places such as China and Oman, but harvest in prohibited in Florida where they are protected.Have a fish tale? Catch or see something interesting this last week?

[AP FILE PHOTO] State is expected to appeal allowing patients to smoke By Dara Kim News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE„ A state law banning patients from smoking medical mari-juana is unconstitutional, a Tallahassee judge ruled late Friday.In a highly anticipated but not surprising decision, Leon County Circuit Judge Karen Gievers found that a constitutional amend-ment approved by voters in 2016 that broadly legalized medical marijuana gives eligible patients the right to smoke the treatment in private.The law banning smok-ing of medical marijuana is invalid because it conflicts with the Florida Constitution and prohibits a use of medical marijuana that is permitted by the amend-ment: smoking in private,Ž Gievers wrote in Fridays 22-page order.A spokesman for the Flor-ida Department of Health said the state is expected to appeal, which likely would place Gievers order on hold.Gievers decision came a little more than a week after a hearing in which Cathy Jordan, a patient who was diagnosed with Lou Gehrigs disease more than three decades ago, told the judge she credits smoking joints with saving her life.Jordan is among the plaintiffs in the lawsuit ini-tiated by John Morgan, the Orlando trial lawyer who largely bankrolled what was known as Amend-ment 2. The prohibition on smoking medical mari-juana was included in a law passed last year that imple-mented the constitutional amendment.Judge rules on marijuana useNews Herald Staff Report PANAMA CITY BEACH „ The Panama City Beach Police are investigating a pos-sible drowning after a man was pulled from the Gulf of Mexico Friday.According to a press release, a 31-year-old male was pulled from the Gulf by several bystanders behind Tropic Winds Resort.

He just needs his butt whipped,Ž Pittman said. If you spend time with [the mentally ill], you will see theres a problem there.

** B2 Monday, May 28, 2018 | The News HeraldThe amendment does not expressly authorize smoking pot but gives the state the authority to enact regu-lations regarding medical marijuana use, lawyers for the state have maintained.But, agreeing with the plaintiffs, Gievers found that the language in the amendment recognizes there is no right to smoke in public places, thereby implicitly recognizing the appropriateness of using smokable medical marijuana in private places consistent with the amendment.ŽThe ability to smoke medical marijuana was impliedŽ in the constitutional language and is therefore a protected right,Ž Gievers wrote.Shortly after Gievers opinion was released, Morgan tweeted: When I start something I finish it. Truth prevails!! The voters will be done!! #BELIEVE #ForThePeople #NoSmokeIsAJoke.ŽSen. Bill Galvano, a Bradenton Republican who will take over as Senate president in the fall, said Friday evening he had not read the order but intended to review it to ascertain the judges reasoning. It is a significant departure from what was passed (in the law),Ž he said.Lawmakers enacted the prohibition on joints„ derided as no smoke is a jokeŽ by crit-ics„ largely to protect the public from the ill effects of smoking, lawyers for the state argued during the May 16 hearing.But Jon Mills, a former House speaker who was instrumental in crafting the amendment and represents the plaintiffs, insisted that the Constitution in a variety of ways allows smokable marijuana, including in how marijuana is defined. For example, the con-stitutional amendment relied on a 2014 definition of marijuana in Florida criminal law, which includes all parts of any plant of the genus Cannabis, whether growing or not.Ž That includes whole-flower marijuana, which is used for smoking, the plain-tiffs contend. Gievers agreed.The amendment addresses the role of each of the three branches of Floridas government in making sure that those who need marijuana for treatment of their per-tinent medical issues are able to have safe access to it, without restriction except that there is no right to smoke in public places,Ž she wrote.During the May 16 hearing, Jordan„ who relied on her husband to interpret her speech„ testified that she was given three to five years to live after being diag-nosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, in 1986. She began smoking marijuana as a treatment a few years after she was diagnosed, Jordan said.Other routes of administration„ such as vaping„ dont work for her, Jordan said.Smoking gives Jordan dry mouth,Ž which offsets the excessive drooling caused by ALS, she said. And it relaxes her muscles, increases her appetite and helps combat depression, Jordan said.It just makes my life a lot more bearable,Ž said Jordan, who currently grows her own marijuana.Ben Pollara, the campaign manager of the political committee behind Amendment 2, hailed the judges ruling.This is a huge victory for sick and suffering Floridians, who can now consume their medicine however they choose. And its a victory for voters, whose clear will had been thwarted by the Legislature. No smoke is a joke, and today the court agreed,Ž said Pollara, whos also the head of the non-profit organization Florida for Care, which advocates for patients and the medical marijuana industry.Fridays decision was the second victory Giev-ers handed to patients who have challenged the state over medicalmarijuana restrictions. Last month, she gave the go-ahead to Tampa strip-club owner Joe Redner to grow his own medical mari-juana for juicing.Ž The 77-year-old Redners doctors ordered the juic-ing treatment to keep his lung cancer in remission.

At 2.8 percent in April, three-tenths of 1 percent below the March rate, Franklin was tied with Walton and Monroe counties, just behind Okaloosa and St. Johns County, the best at 2.7 percent.We continue to have good job growth in many sectors. The large year-over-year gains in hospitality and leisure bode well for a strong tourism season,Ž said Kim Bodine, executive director of CareerSource Gulf Coast.The Panama City metro area had the second fast-est annual job growth rate compared to all the metro areas in the state in professional and business services (+8.3 percent) in April.

** Paul and Patrick Rollins make rums and vodkas at their distillery in Gulf BreezeBy Jennie McKeon315-4434 | @jenniemnwfdn jmckeon@nwfdailynews.comGULF BREEZE „ Tucked into an unas-suming strip mall near the Gulf Breeze Flea Market is a licensed distillery.Crafting spirits such as rum and vodka from scratch takes time, and so does building a business.Rollins Distillery was established in 2012 by father and son duo Paul and Patrick Rollins. With Pauls background in chemistry and Patricks background in marketing, Esprit De KreweŽ vodka and Krewe of LafitteŽ rum were born. Both are made with Florida molasses and both have won awards from the American Distilling Institute.Its a hard name but an easy spirit,Ž Patrick said.Patrick said the Mardi Gras theme throughout their branding was a nod to the Gulf Coast. The skeleton mascot of sorts you find on the labels has a name „ Mr. Augustine.We wanted to capture the joyous nature of Mardi Gras,Ž he said.Paul studied chemistry in the Naval Academy and puts his scientific knowledge to good use at the distill-ery. His favorite part of the business is meeting other distillers.Theres a real enthu-siasm for it,Ž he said. During the American colonies, people made their own spirits. George Washington made his own whiskey and brandy. When we went to the American Distilling Institute, I was amazed at the diversity of people. Its a real cross section of America.ŽRollins Distillery is a pilot plant,Ž Paul said. They produce and bottle spirits right in house, and next door they have a small tasting room and gift shop.Most of their business is outside of Gulf Breeze. You can find their brand of vodka and rum in a number craft cocktails at Pensacola restaurants such as Union Public House, IRON, The Fish House and Atlas Oyster House. Their spirits can also be found in select liquor stores such as Aloha Wine & Liquor, Perdido Liquors and The Liquor Store in Pace.From their small plant, the Rollinses pro-duce about 240 bottles of rum per month. They want to expand operations to more than double that. But theyre not looking to do mass production, Patrick said.We enjoy making a product that people can enjoy,Ž he said. Well never be willing to sac-rifice quality.Ž B4 Monday, May 28, 2018 | The News HeraldAfrican American; about 3 percent are Hispanic; and 2 percent are Other.ŽAccording to our data, our client population is reflective of the community and for some minorities the percentage served is actually higher than what would be reflective of the community,Ž said Tricia Pearce, community rela-tions specialist.Pearce said officials dont know the reason behind the fact the centers minority clientele percentage is higher than the area population. She said the organization hasnt done any specific marketing strategies to reach out to minority communities.Janice Lucas, director of LEAD Coalition, had a couple of theories as to why that may be case. For one, she said there may be agreater number of African Americancounselors at the center, which might draw in more minorities. Two, she saidsome families recieve help from pro-grams like the Department of Children and Families, and in turn get aid from the treatment center. And three, there are some orga-nizations out there, like LEAD, that have offered minority communities help in times of crisis. Misunderstandings and a scarcity of information are some reasons why African Americans, in particular, might not fully understand mental illnesses, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness.Religious beliefs and support groups might be culprits for why some African Americans choose to not seek medical treatment, as they tend to rely on faith, community and family support, according to the organization.Lucas said she agrees that some African Americans seek help through churches and community organizations, instead of going right to a care center.Culturally, getting counseling has not been a go-to,Ž she said. One of the first services we offered in LEAD was for grief coun-seling for families after the 2014 homicides.ŽPoverty, access to resources and social stigma are also reasons.Unfortunately, there is a stigma around mental health treatment and indi-viduals of all backgrounds hesitate to reach out for help. We dont hesitate to seek help if we have heart disease or cancer and we understand that early treatment results in a better outcome. Mental health is not different and should be taken just as seri-ously,ŽPearce said.Whites battle with mental illness has lead Pit-tman to believe her son was not in the right state of mind when he was arrested for allegedly stabbing his ex-girlfriend in Mexico Beach in July 2016. White was 31 at the time.Why punish someone for something when they werent in the right state of mind when it hap-pened,Ž Pittman said. We need more people out there willing to work with the mentally ill, instead of throwing them behind bars like animals. His mental ill-ness had him thinking like he was a teenager or less than that,Ž she said.The bipolar and schizo-phrenia anger comes out, and we have to deal with that. When he comes out of it or is on his medication, hes the perfect child,Ž she added. White is currently await-ing trial at the Bay County Jail, Pittman said. She said her son has been on medi-cation for about two years, and has been doing well.Im going to fight for my son,Ž she said.If someone is seeking aid for any mental health issues, they can begin by consulting with a primary care physician, Pearce said. She said mental illnesses are serious, and should not be nodded off.In some cases the primary care provider will be able to provide the care that is needed. If the care needed goes beyond what a primary care provider is able to provide, they can refer the patient to a spe-cialist. The individual may also elect to call a special-ist directly, without seeing a primary care provider,Ž she said.For more information about Life Management Center, call 850-522-4485, or visit HEALTHFrom Page B1 PANAMA CITY BEACH19-year-old arrested for allegedly molesting childA 19-year-old man was arrested Sunday after police say he molested several children on the beach near Pier Park.According to a press release, Kyle Koch has been charged with lewd and lascivi-ous conduct and lewd and las-civious molestation of a child and is awaiting a first appearance before a judge.The Panama City Beach Police received a call early Sunday morning about a possible sex offense against a child.

Check out the new, free JUSTJUMBLE app SUDOKUAnswer to yesterdays sudokuDEAR ABBYWomens shared misery enabled better friendshipDEAR ABBY: I lost my husband of 45 years three years ago. My longtime friend, Grace,Ž was very supportive and included me in family dinners and outings so I wouldnt be alone. A year ago, I moved away to start a new life for myself. Grace still lives in the same town and is still married to a verbally abusive, depressed husband. She told me once that she envied my freedom, but not how I got it. I have met a wonderful man. We are in love and will see where it goes. When I talk to or see Grace, she never asks about my life or what I am doing. She vents at length about her husband, her marriage and other things in her life. I think she liked it when I was miserable, too. Now that Im happy, I dont really want to see Grace anymore. Shes using me as someone she can unload on, and in my opinion, thats not friendly. What should I do? Keep avoiding her? I dont want to confront her, but if I need to, I would like to do it in the best way. „ MOVING ONDEAR MOVING: I dont think you should confrontŽ Grace either, but avoiding her isnt the answer. Have an honest, non-confrontational talk with her. I dont know how economically dependent Grace is on her husband, but it might help her self-esteem to find a job. If shes unable or unwilling to do that, shell have to decide if this is how she wants to spend the rest of her life or discuss her options with an attorney.DEAR ABBY: I have Tourettes syndrome, the type that causes coughing, among other things. There are different triggers that cause the coughing to start, and one of them is the smell of mowed grass. This means that I cannot mow the grass where I live. A lot of my family members think that I should do it anyway. They probably think Im lazy, as I still live with my mother and cant afford to move out right now. Im tired of constantly repeating that I cant mow the grass. They know of my problem, but seem oblivious. I do plenty of work around the house. What am I supposed to say or do when this comes up again? Im considering just walking away from them. Im tired of all these people who refuse to understand that I have a real problem. „ COUGH, COUGH IN ILLINOISDEAR COUGH: Ask your doctor to write you a letter explaining your medical problem, so you can share it with the relatives who seem unable to believe you have one. I cant guarantee it will completely solve your problem, but it may silence most of them. As to the rest, tune them out.

** EARLY DEADLINEDue to an early deadline some sports scores were not available. See Tuesdays News Herald for complete results. The News Herald | Monday, May 28, 2018 C1 SPORTSThe Associated PressPARIS „ A year after stunning the tennis world by winning the French Open for the first tour title of her career, Jelena Ostapenko is again in rare company: a first-round loser as the defending champion at a Grand Slam tournament. Ostapenkos high-risk game produced far fewer rewards than problems Sunday at Roland Garros, and she bowed out to 67th-ranked Kateryna Kozlova of Ukraine 7-5, 6-3 at Court Philippe Chatrier. The result made Ostapenko only the second reigning womens champion to exit in the first round of the French Open a year later „ it happened to 2005 winner Anastasia Myskina, too „ and only the sixth at any major tournament in the profes-sional era.I didnt expect anything from this match,Ž Kozlova said in an on-court interview. Its just an amazing feeling.ŽHers was not the only sig-nificant surprise of Day 1.Seven-time major champion Venus Williams was beaten 6-4, 7-5 by 85th-ranked Wang Qiang of China. Add that to the ninth-seeded Williams loss at the Australian Open in January, and this is the only time in the 37-year-old Americans career that she was sent home in the first round of back-to-back majors.In 2017, ranked only 47th and 20 years old, Ostapenko became the first woman since 1979 to win her initial tourlevel trophy at a Grand Slam tournament.Opening day stunnersDefending French Open champ, Venus ousted on Day 1Jelena Ostapenko returns the ball to Ukraines Kateryna Kozlova during their “ rst round match at the French Open. [AP PHOTO/ CHRISTOPHE ENA] Tallahassee DemocratNever out of the fight. Thats been the Florida State softball mentality all season long and is a personal saying of head coach Lonni Alamedas. The Seminoles have shown that numerous times this season with comebacks and walk-offs galore. Never has it been more evident, though, than on Saturday when the No. 6 Seminoles (52-11) completed their rally in the Tallahassee Super Regional to defeat No. 11 LSU (45-17) 3-1 in the nightcap rubber match and advance to their third Womens College World Series in the last five years. FSU entered the day facing a 1-0 deficit in the series and needing to take both of Saturdays games to advance. After an emotional 8-5 extra-innings win to force the winner-take-all third game against the Tigers, FSU never trailed the final game, riding a strong start from senior pitcher Kylee Hanson and a two-run homer from Jessie Warren to the win.The Seminoles needed just two hits to bring in their three runs in a game that took just an hour and 43 minutes after the first game (scheduled for a 5 p.m. start) took nearly five hours with its early rain and lightning delay. Seminoles advance to WCWS The Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS „ Will Power took the lead in the Indianapolis 500 with four laps to go, knew he had it won when he took the white flag all alone and spent the final lap yelling to himself as he pulled away from the field.Man,Ž he said, I think Im going to win this!ŽThe 37-year-old Australian did just that in a dominant performance for Team Penske. He managed his fuel strategy perfectly as Oriol Servia and Jack Harvey had to pit in the closing laps, and then made all the right moves to hold off pole winner Ed Carpenter to win his first Indy 500.I was wondering if I would ever win it and thoughts when through my mind during the month, my career,Ž he said. Ive had so many wins, so many poles. Everyone talks about the 500 and I just couldnt imagine winning a race in front of a crowd like this, this many people. Its just amazing.ŽPower extended team owner Roger Penskes record of 17 wins in the Greatest Spectacle in Racing,Ž and it completed a sweep of May in Indianapolis for him. Power also won the road-course event.He has 34 wins in IndyCar now, tying him with Al Unser Jr. for most on the career list.He hated ovals and now he loves them,Ž said Carpenter, the local boy who had domi-nated the early stages of the race. He and I love racing together. Maybe someday hell race for me. I dont know if we have a tampering rule in IndyCar, but congrats Will.ŽALL ABOUT WILL POWERPower wins Indy 500, No. 17 for car owner Roger PenskeWill Power celebrates after winning the Indianapolis 500.

** C2 Monday, May 28, 2018 | The News Herald The Associated PressMONACO „ Red Bulls Daniel Ricciardo overcame a mid-race power loss to win the Monaco Grand Prix from pole position on Sunday.The Australian driver showed outstanding composure and defensive driving to fend off Sebas-tian Vettels Ferrari.Vettel shaved a few points off championship leader Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes, who finished third.Hamilton made an audacious move by pit-ting for new tires several laps before his rivals, but was worried they would wear out completely by the end.The virtual safety car came out for the last few laps after Charles Leclerc lost his brakes and shunted his Sauber into the back of Brendon Hartleys Toro Rosso. Drivers are not allowed to overtake when the VSC is deployed and must main-tain a steady speed.The incident came too late and made no difference to the overall race picture.Kimi Raikkonen was fourth for Ferrari ahead of Mercedes Valtteri Bottas and Force Indias Esteban Ocon.It was Ricciardos second win of the season after the Chinese GP last month and seventh of his career, pushing him up to third in the title race. Ricciardo thought hed won in Monaco two years ago, where he led from pole position only to be undone by a botched pit stop by his team which left him furious.There was no denying him this time.Two years in the making and I finally feel redemption has arrived,Ž Ricciardo said. I lost power halfway and I thought the race was over. Thanks to the team we got it back. Im stoked.ŽRicciardo appeared emotional, even tearful, as he sat in his car moments after crossing the finish line after 78 laps on the winding 3.34-kilometer (2.1-mile) street circuit.It was soon time for Ricciardos typical showmanship.He stood on his car, nodded slowly in recogni-tion of his achievement and then thumped his chest.There were a few doubts that came in. But we won Monaco,Ž he said, laughing. It feels good.ŽRed Bull team principal Christian Horner rushed over to him and they hugged.As he usually does after a victory, Ricciardo took off his shoe, filled it with champagne and drank out of it.He then offered the huge bottle [„] but not the shoe [„] to Prince Albert of Monaco, who took a small sip.Vettel, too, will be in a good mood after reducing Hamiltons championship lead from 17 points to 14.It is shaping up to be an intriguing season, with Ricciardo, Vettel and Hamilton winning two races each.Ricciardos Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen finished ninth after starting from 20th and last place having crashed prior to Saturdays qualifying.Near the end, the Dutchman was on fresher tires and making them count as he zoomed past Renaults Carlos Sainz Jr. with a typically brazen overtaking move.Red Bulls Ricciardo wins Monaco GPRed Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo, right, celebrates after winning the Monaco GP. [AP PHOTO/CLAUDE PARIS] But the Latvian has had a rough road this season: Her record is just 12-12.Kozlova, meanwhile, is 24 and arrived at Roland Garros with an even worse mark for 2018 „ 4-6.In her only previous appearance in the main draw in Paris, last year, she lost in the first round. Overall, she had won one of seven matches at any Grand Slam site.And against the No. 5-seeded Ostapenko, Kozlova earned the first victory of her career against someone ranked in the top 30.In many ways, Ostapenko was her own undoing.She wound up with 48 unforced errors, more than twice as many as Kozlova, and that was more than enough to render Ostapenkos 22-13 edge in winners irrelevant. Ostapenko allowed her opponent to convert 7 of 16 break points, including when a backhand landed in the net to end the match after about 1 hours.Moments later, she was gone, swiftly head-ing to the locker room. Ostapenko raised her left hand to acknowledge the crowds applause, but she kept her eyes focused on the ground as she walked off.Kozlova stayed steady despite the enormity of the moment and while dealing with a blister on the back of her right foot. She was treated by a trainer during a medi-cal timeout after the first set.Actually, I have three blisters, but one was the worst, with blood,Ž Kozlova said afterward. When you are playing the match, sometimes you are not feeling the pain. ... I tried to stay focused.Ž STUNNERSFrom Page C1The final out was made at 12:33 a.m. more than nine hours after the teams arrived at the field. To have literally all 22 players in every pitch, talking the whole time. It was such an amazing feeling in the dugout,Ž Alameda said. It was just like were not going to let this go, were going to fight every single pitch.Ž The comeback com-pletes an exact reversal of what the Tigers did in last years Tallahassee Super Regional when they won the final two games after dropping the opener to advance to the WCWS. We set the tone in the locker room before we even came out,Ž Warren said. The girls stuck to it. Im just so proud of every single one of the girls on this team for what they have done today.Ž LSU coach Beth Torina was proud of her teams performance as well. It was a grueling, long day for both teams. On Friday, the NCAA made a decision to play a second game if needed Saturday night due to the threat of Subtropical Storm Alberto. The storm is expected to bring heavy rains and possible flood-ing to Florida and much of the Southeast in the coming days, according to the National Weather Service. Im really proud of my team. Im really proud of the way they fought,Ž Torina said. I think a couple of missed opportunities in the first game today, game two of the series cost us. I think a couple of things we couldve done better there and we had an opportunity to win that game. Im upset because we lost but Im not upset because we lost. It was a tough day for both teams. I dont know if you can say that that was a factor because I think both teams are in the same situation. Both teams had a pitcher that was ready to go and that was talented for game three. Both teams were in the same situation so I dont know if it was that big of a factor.Ž SEMINOLESFrom Page C1 Near -record temperatures at the start created a slick, 2 -mile oval, and new cars with less downforce proved to be a handful for even the most experienced of drivers.Defending race winner Takuma Sato crashed out early in IndyCars most prestigious race. Danica Patricks career ended when she lost control and slammed into the wall. Sebastien Bourdais, three-time winner Helio Castroneves and Tony Kanaan also lost control and wrecked.Patrick was completing the  Danica DoubleŽ after wrecking out at the Day-tona 500. She decided long ago that the race that made her famous would be her last, and while she called the outcome disappointing, she also expressed appreciation for all that Indianapolis had given her.Yeah, its an entire career,Ž she said, but what really launched it was this. Its both of them. I had a lot of good fortune here and did still have some this month. It just didnt come today.ŽBourdais crashed a year after missing the race because of a harrowing, high-speed accident during qualifying, while Castroneves„ who is now driving sports cars for Penske „ was going for a record-tying fourth victory in the Indy 500 in a brief return to open-wheel racing. Moments after climbing out of his wrecked car, he begged Penske for another chance.Well certainly take a good luck at that for sure,Ž Penske said. He got a good run and got a little high there. You dont see a guy like that lose it very often.Ž POWERFrom Page C1 Jelena Ostapenko returns the ball to Kateryna Kozlova during their “ rst round match at the French Open. [AP PHOTO/CHRISTOPHE ENA] Tallahassee DemocratBack-to-Back ACC Champions. No. 6 seed Florida State (43-17, 20-13) won its second straight ACC title and its third title in the last four years with a 11-8 win in 11 innings over No. 5 seed Louisville (43-17, 21-13) on Sunday after-noon at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park in Durham, North Carolina. Its the eighth ACC title for the Seminoles, the most of any team since FSU joined the ACC in 1992. The next closest team is Georgia Tech with five. Clemson has the most overall with 10. FSU third baseman Drew Mendoza played the hero this time with a 2-RBI double to the wall in right field with the bases loaded in the top of the 10th inning to put the Seminoles ahead 10-8, and left fielder Reese Albert added another run on an RBI groundout to the short stop. It was the fifth final inning win for the Seminoles over the last seven games, and FSU improved to 7-1 in extra innings this year. The Seminoles went up 5-1 and looked to be cruising to a win, but the Cardinals found the power and chased starter Andrew Karp (8-4) for seven runs „ including three home runs „ to take an 8-5 lead in the fourth. But FSU found a way to put runs on the board chipping away at the Lou-isville lead before tying the game in the top of the seventh. The Seminoles didnt hit a single home run, but finished the game with 11 hits, including six (6-for-18) with runners in scoring position. Its the first repeat ACC champion since 1998-99 when Wake Forest won it in back-to-back seasons, and the first time for the baseball program in FSU history.FSU wins second straight ACC titleFlorida State third baseman Drew Mendoza th rows the ball to “ rst base for an out during the second inning against Louisville.

For a cyclist there is nothing greater.ŽFroome has now won the Tour de France, Spanish Vuelta and Giro in succession, becoming only the third cyclist to hold all three Grand Tour titles at the same time and the first to achieve the feat since the Vuelta was moved to the end of the season in 1995.Merckx won four straight between 1972 and 1973 and Hinault took three in a row in 1982 and 1983.Irish rider Sam Ben-nett won the final stage, a 115-kilometer (71-mile) leg of 10 laps around a circuit over the capitals cobblestones, in a mass sprint alongside the Roman Forum. It was Bennetts third victory in this years race.Elia Viviani, who crossed second, lost the lead after running into problems with tire grip on the slip-pery cobblestones.With riders concerned about treacherous road conditions due to the uneven cobblestones, the stage was neutralized after three laps, meaning the final overall times were recorded after a third of the way through the stage.The route took cyclists past the Colosseum, Spanish Steps, Circus Maximus and Baths of Caracalla.Miguel Angel Lopez, a Colombian with Astana, finished third overall, 4:57 behind Froome.Thibaut Pinot withdrew before the stage, having cracked in Saturdays final mountain leg and lost his podium spot. The French rider spent the night in a hospital with a lung problem.Its Froomes sixth Grand Tour win overall and he becomes the seventh rider to win all three Grand Tours over their careers.The Kenyan-born Brit-ish rider rode a special pink-colored bike for the final stage, while his Team Sky teammates had pink handlebars.Froome finished more than 15 minutes behind Bennett, crossing the line arm in arm with six teammates.

TENNIS 11 a.m. NBC „ French Open, “ rst round, at ParisON THE AIR By Rob HarrisThe Associated PressKIEV, Ukraine „ With his back to goal but eyes on the incoming cross, Gareth Bale connected with the ball while leaping in the air and sent a scissor-kick arcing into the top of the net.Fusing athleticism and technique, it was a mesmerizing sight to behold in the Champions League final.Rarely has there been a finer goal in a Euro-pean final, sealing a third successive title for Real Madrid in a 3-1 victory over Liverpool on Satur-day. Yet with blunders, injuries and intrigue unfolding throughout the night in Kievs Olympic Stadium, the wondergoal just enriched this engrossing climax to the European club season and set the tone for weeks of uncertainty.A weeping Mohamed Salah was forced off in the first half with a shoulder injury that foiled Liverpools quest for a first continental success in 13 years and left the World Cup hopes of the Egyp-tian KingŽ in jeopardy.Tears also streamed down Loris Karius face after the Liverpool goalkeepers mistakes gifted two goals on the biggest match of his career. It might also be his last for Liverpool, which was denied a sixth European title by the aristocrats of the continent.When all they should have been thinking about is celebrating, both Bale and teammate Cristiano Ronaldo also cast doubts on their Madrid careers.But while Zinedine Zidane was adamant about the need to keep hold of five-time world player of the year Ronaldo, the Madrid coach seemed far less concerned about the future of the player whose two goals just delivered the clubs record-extending 13th European title.Bale only came on in the second half. The impact was explosive, scoring the bicycle kick in the 64th minute. Five years into his Madrid career, the 28-year-old Bale wants to be more than a super-sub.I need to be playing week in, week out and that hasnt happened this season for one reason or another,Ž Bale said. I need to sit down in the summer and discuss it with my agent.ŽWill Bale get assurances over a place in the start-ing XI?It might be compli-cated,Ž Zidane said. But everybody looks out for themselves and takes care of their own thing, and I understand that.ŽZidane doesnt under-stand why Ronaldo raised fresh doubts over his commitment to the club. While Ronaldo became the first five-time winner in the post-1993 Champi-ons League era, this was a comparatively muted performance in a final for a player who has contrib-uted decisive goals in the three finals Madrid had contested in the previous four seasons.In the tunnel before kickoff there was a furtive glance across to Salah, who has also scored 44 goals this season. But the showdown between the world player of the year and a contender for his throne never materialized.Blame Sergio Ramos for that, although the foul that ended Salahs final was not the Madrid captain at his most cyni-cal. Salah landed heavily on his left shoulder in a twisting fall after 25 minutes. Ramos stepped away from the scene unpunished and Salah soon managed to step up after overcoming the initial pain.Not for long. Salahs final was over after 30 minutes.Lying on his back, hands covering his face, Salah rose only to leave the field. Four minutes later, the tears were flow-ing down the face of Dani Carvajal after the Madrid right back appeared to injure a hamstring while attempting a back-heel. Face-down on the field, Carvajal knew his final was over in the first half for the second successive season. Bales scissor-kick gives Madrid titleReal Madrid players celebrate after winning the Champions League Final soccer match between Real Madrid and Liverpool. [MATTHIAS SCHRADER/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Robbie AndreuStaff writerThe SECs annual spring meetings are usu-ally relatively dull and pedestrian. But theres an item of business this week in Destin that certainly should catch the attention of Florida football fans.The league will be voting on a proposal that would lift all SEC restric-tions on athletes who want to transfer from one league school to another if their original schools have received a postsea-son ban by the NCAA, according to the USA Today.The proposal is being sponsored by Florida and Texas A&M, and if it passes, would have an immediate impact on wide receiver Van Jefferson, who transferred to UF in January from Ole Miss, which is under NCAA probation and banned from postseason play in 2018.If the new rule goes into effect, it would help clear the way for Jefferson to become eligible immediately. He also would need to receive a waiver from the NCAA seeking imme-diate eligibility.UF has not yet sent a waiver request to the NCAA for Jefferson or wide receiver Trevon Grimes, the Ohio State transfer who is seeking immediate eligibility based on the fact he transferred to UF tobe closer to a close family member dealing with a sig-nificant health issue.If Jefferson and Grimes are ruled eligible for the 2018 season, it could have a significant impact on Floridas offense, which has been lacking playmakers at wide receiver in recent years.Jefferson and Grimes both stood out in the spring by consistently making plays.Jefferson already is a proven playmaker in the SEC. In his two seasons with the Rebels, he combined to catch 91 passes for 999 yards and four touchdowns.Grimes, a five-star recruit coming out of Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas, played in two games as a true freshman at Ohio State last fall, catching two passes for 20 yards.Along with impacting transfers within the conference, the proposal being voted on at the spring meetings this week also would impose a substantial financial penalty on schools that have been banned from postseason play in football or basketball.All postseason revenue „ from the NCAA, SEC or bowl games „ would be withheld and could be worth millions.The SEC currently with-holds postseason revenue from schools banned from the postseason, but returns some of the money if the school is not involved in any major NCAA infrac-tions over a five-year period.Report: Florida pitches SEC transfer proposal The league will be voting on a proposal that would lift all SEC restrictions on athletes who want to transfer from one league school to another if their original schools have received a postseason ban by the NCAA, according to the USA Today.

He was 47 and on his fifth ship, which was preparing for its final voyage and has since been decommissioned. For his wife of 14 years and their kids, their whole world changed that day. Its just like you see in the movies. There were two men in dress blues at my door,Ž Stephanie Martin said in a phone interview. One was someone I knew very well. I knew why they were there. ...

We go back on Monday,Ž he said.They debated whether they were going to come down when they saw the weather forecast.Were like, Were going. We already planned it,Ž he said.Flinn said when it starts raining they will head to Pier Park and its bars.Amanda Eyler, from Ashford, Ala., also came down Friday, a day earlier than planned.My kids have never been to the beach,Ž she said. We were going to wait until today to come but my husband was like, Get your stuff ready. Lets go.ŽShe said the Super 8 hotel was booked solid on Friday night but many people cancelled their reservations, so the hotel cut prices. As a result, she said they decided to stay another day and leave on Sunday after they got a $40 discount on their room.Eyler said they plan on taking their kids to Ripleys Believe it or Not and Sun seekers beat Alberto to BeachDenise Devine serves at the Russell-Fields Pier on Saturday.

** not planning on opening shel-ters for now as they still see the system as primarily a signifi-cant rain event, though it could last several days as the warning runs through Tuesday. Offi-cials did change to double red flags on the Beach, meaning it is not safe to enter the water, late Saturday afternoon.A whole lot of rain (is expected), and a whole lot of rain over two to even three days starting Sunday, or midday or later than that on Sunday, is what the forecast is now,Ž said Mark Bowen, chief of emergency services. This is the latest forecast. Idont know that the rain will be steady. It may be thunder-storms that come through just like the gusts come through in a band.ŽHe said the farther to the west the eye of the storm lands, the more of a feeder-band storm it is going to be for Bay County. I dont wish anything bad on anybody, but the farther west it is, the less of the mois-ture were going to be saddled with,Ž he said.Bay County on Sunday was under a tropical storm warn-ing and storm surge watch. A tropical storm warning means the area is expected to see winds between 30 and 40 mph over the 36 hours. Gusts could hit 50 mph.We can measure tropical storm force gusts out on the beach sometimes with no hurricane,Ž he said. To me, what I think were going to see is a lot of thunderstorms for two days with wind gusts, so there is definitely going to be some bad weather.ŽBowen said he would be surprised to see a wind gust in Bay County over 55 miles per hour.Forecasters arerefining the tornado risk from the system, he said.Right now, everybody has got the same chance any-where in that cone,Ž he said. Obviously we are to the far east of that cone. So were still just watching it very, very closely.ŽHe said the weather system is certainly something people should prepare for. Its just not something we would open a shelter for.ŽBowen said the concern is that the system could be simi-lar to July 4, 2013 rain event, when 15 inches of rain fell in Bay County, causing flooding. The forecast has Alberto dumping 4 to 6 inches or moreŽ of rain on Bay County, Bowen said.However, he said there is one forecast out of nine or 10 he has looked over that has rainfall in this area of up to 18 inches. There is only one (forecast) that is out there in this 18-inch category. Certainly we hope that doesnt happen,Ž he said.But he said this storm has a similar potential for rainfall to the July 4,2013 storm because if it stalls it is just going to dump rain on us forever.ŽBowen said the bestcase scenario is we could end up just having some thunderstorms.ŽThat could happen, and there could be sunshine in-between.

** The News Herald | Sunday, May 27, 2018 A3By Jon GambrellThe Associated PressSALALAH, Oman „ A cyclone more powerful than any previously recorded in southern Oman slammed into the Gulf country and neighboring Yemen on Saturday, deluging a major city with nearly three years worth of rainfall in single day. The storm killed at least five people while more than 30 remain missing, officials said.Cyclone Mekunu caused flash flooding that tore away whole roadways and submerged others in Salalah, Omans thirdlargest city, stranding drivers. Strong winds knocked over street lights and tore away roofing.Rushing waters from the rain and storm surges flooded typically dry creek beds. The holiday destina-tions now-empty tourist beaches were littered with debris and foam from the churning Arabian Sea. Three people, including a 12-year-old girl, died in Oman, and another two bodies were recovered from the Yemeni island of Socotra. More than 30 people were still missing in Socotra, including Yemeni, Indian and Suda-nese nationals.Yemeni officials also reported damage in the countrys far east, along the border with Oman. Rageh Bakrit, the gover-nor of al-Mahra province, said on his official Twitter account late Friday that strong winds had blown down houses and taken out communication lines and water services. He said there were no fatali-ties in the province.Indias Meteorological Department said the storm packed maximum sustained winds of 105-111 miles per hour with gusts of up to 124 mph. It called the cyclone extremely severe.ŽPortions of Salalah, home to some 200,000 people, lost power as the cyclone made landfall.Branches and leaves lit-tered the streets. Several underpasses became standing lakes. Some cars were left abandoned on the road. Electrical workers began trying to repair lines in the city while police and soldiers in SUVs patrolled the streets. On the outskirts of the city, near the Salalah International Airport, what once was a dry creek bed had become a raging river.The airport, closed since Thursday, will reopen early Sunday, Omans Public Authority for Civil Aviation said. The Port of Salalah „ a key gateway for the country and for Qatar amid a regional diplomatic dispute „ remained closed, its cranes secured against the pounding rain and winds.Omani forecasters said Salalah and the surround-ing area would get at least 7.87 inches of rain, over twice the citys annual downfall. It actually received 10.953 inches, nearly three times its annual rainfall.Authorities remained worried about flash flood-ing in the areas valleys and potential mudslides down its nearby cloud-shrouded mountains. In nearby Wadi Darbat, the storms rains supercharged its famous waterfall.Police and others continued their rescue efforts even as the winds and rains calmed. Capt. Tarek al-Shanfari of the Royal Oman Polices public relations department said there had been at least three fatalities in the storm, including the death of a 12-year-old girl who was hit in the head by a door flung open by the wind.An Asian laborer died in a flooded valley and an Omani national in a 4x4 died when his vehicle was swept away, al-Shanfari said.On Socotra, authorities relocated over 230 families to sturdier buildings and other areas, includ-ing those more inland and in the islands mountains, Yemeni security officials said.Flash floods engulfed Socotras streets, cutting electricity and communication lines. Some humanitarian aid from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates arrived on the island just hours after the cyclone receded.Yemeni security officials said rescuers recovered two bodies on Socotra, while more than 30 people remain missing. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief reporters.The island, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, has been the focus of a dispute between the UAE and Yemens internationally recognized government, which are ostensibly allied against Shiite rebels known as Houthis.Socotra has a unique ecosystem and is home to plants, snails and reptiles that can be found nowhere else.In Oman, Mohammed Omer Baomer warned his neighbors about a tornaway chunk of road just down the street from his home after earlier getting his SUV stuck over it.It was a scary feeling, as if it was the end of world,Ž he said of the cyclone. You cant even go outside. You try to watch from the window and you cant.ŽYet even as Mekunu barreled overhead, the eye of the storm pro-vided a moments respite early Saturday morning. At one luxury hotel in Salalah, which already had evacuated its guests, workers sat down early for suhoor,Ž a meal Muslims eat before sunrise during the holy fasting month of Ramadan. They laughed and shared plates by flashlight in a darkened ballroom, the cyclones wind a dull roar behind their clatter.Powerful cyclone strikes Oman, Yemen; ve deadPeople wait on the other side of a road which has been cut by the ” ood water after Cyclone Merkunu Saturday in Salalah, Oman.

[MARK NAFTALIN/UNICEF VIA THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Kim Tong-HyungThe Associated PressSEOUL, South Korea „ North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in met Saturday for the second time in a month, exchanging a huge bear hug and broad smiles in a surprise summit at a border village to discuss Kims potential meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump and ways to follow through on the peace initiatives of the rivals earlier summit.Following a whirlwind 24 hours that saw Trump cancel the highly anticipated June 12 meeting with Kim before saying its potentially back on, the Korean leaders took matters into their own hands.Their quickly arranged meeting Saturday appears to highlight a sense of urgency on both sides of the worlds most heavily armed border: Moon wants to secure a summit that he sees as the best way to ease animosity that had some fearing a war last year; Kim may see the sit-down with Trump as the best way to save his economy from crushing sanctions and win security assurances in a region sur-rounded by enemies. Kim, in a telling line from a dispatch issued by the Norths state-run news service on Sunday, expressed his fixed will on the historic (North Korea)-U.S. summit talks.Ž The two Korean leaders agreed to positively cooper-ate with each other as ever to improve (North Korea)-U.S. relations and establish (a) mechanism for permanent and durable peace.ŽThey agreed to meet again June 1 and to set up talks between their top generals.The meeting came hours after South Korea expressed relief over revived talks for a summit between Trump and Kim.It remains unclear whether Kim will ever agree to fully abandon his nuclear arsenal in return, despite Moons insistence that Kim can be persuaded to abandon his nuclear facilities, materials and bombs in a verifiable and irreversible way in exchange for credible security and eco-nomic guarantees.Moon, who brokered the summit between Washington and Pyongyang, likely used Saturdays meeting to confirm Kims willingness to enter nuclear negotiations with Trump and clarify what steps Kim has in mind in the process of denuclearization, said Hong Min, a senior ana-lyst at Seouls Korea Institute for National Unification.While Washington and Pyongyang have expressed their hopes for a summit through published statements, Moon has to step up as the mediator because the surest way to set the meeting in stone would be an official confirmation of intent between heads of states,Ž Hong said.South Korean presidential spokesman Yoon Young-chan said Moon will reveal details of his meeting with Kim on Sunday.U.S. officials have talked about a comprehensive one-shot deal in which North Korea fully eliminates its nukes first and receives rewards later. But Kim, through two summits with Chinese President Xi Jinping in March and May, has called for a phased and synchro-nized process in which every action he takes is met with a reciprocal reward from the United States.Koh Yu-hwan, a North Korea expert at Seouls Dongguk University and a policy adviser to Moon, said the South Korean presi-dent wants Kim to accept an alternative approach advocated by Seoul, in which the Norths comprehensive commitment and credible actions toward denucleariza-tion are followed by a phased but compressed process of declaration, inspection and verifiable dismantling.Before he canceled the summit, Trump this past week did not rule out an incremental approach that would provide incentives along the way to the North.Trump tweeted earlier Saturday that a summit with Kim, if it does happen, will likely take place on June 12 in Singapore as originally planned.Following an unusually provocative 2017 in which his engineers tested a purported thermonuclear warhead and three long-range mis-siles theoretically capable of striking mainland U.S. cities, Kim has engaged in a flurry of diplomatic activity in recent months. In addition to his summits with Moon and Xi, Kim also has had two meetings with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.It wasnt immediately clear how the rival Koreas orga-nized what appeared to be an emergency summit. Ahead of their first meeting last month, Kim and Moon established a hotline that they said would enable direct communica-tion between the leaders and would be valuable to defuse crises, but it was unclear whether it was used to set up the latest meeting.Photos released by South Koreas presidential office showed Moon arriving at the North Korean side of the Panmunjom truce village and shaking hands with Kims sister, Kim Yo Jong, before sitting down with Kim for their summit.Moon was accompanied by his spy chief, Suh Hoon, while Kim was joined by Kim Yong Chol, a former military intelligence chief who is now a vice chairman of the North Korean ruling partys central committee tasked with inter-Korean relations.The two leaders embraced as Moon departed.Moons office said that during their two-hour meeting, the two leaders also discussed carrying out the peace commitments they agreed to at their first summit, held at the South Korean side of Panmunjom on April 27, but didnt elaborate.Korean leaders hold surprise summitNorth Korean leader Kim Jong Un, left, and South Korean President Moon Jae-in embrace Saturday after their meeting at the northern side of the Panmunjom in North Korea.

** A6 Sunday, May 27, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Ellen McCarthyThe Washington PostOfficially, Noelle Nguyens task is to interpret.When she shows up at Culmore Clinic in Falls Church, Virginia, where immigrants get free healthcare services pro-vided through the support of 16 local congregations „ Christian, Muslim and Jewish together „ she helps elderly Vietnamese people speak to their doctors.And then, sometimes, she invites them to her home.They dont have anyone. They ask me for my phone number. I have to give it to them,Ž she says. And I go and help them and comfort them. My job is not just to translate. My job is also to help them with whatever they need.ŽAnd, as she sees it, being able to offer that help is the privilege of a lifetime. A lifetime shaped by the promise „ and deliverance „ of American opportunity.Noelle was a 13-yearold in Vietnam when she and three of her siblings were loaded onto a small ferry packed with refugees. Until the com-munists took over the nation three years earlier, Noelles dad had been a government accountant. After the 1975 takeover, he was sent to a re-edu-cation camp and became a motorbike taxi driver. The familys home was seized, and Noelles par-ents feared for the futures of their 11 children.Until she was aboard the boat, disguised as a sugar-cane cargo ship, Noelle didnt fully understand what was happening. Her parents hadnt told her where she was headed, fearing that she might breathe word of their planned escape. Noelle didnt even get to say goodbye to her mother.The boat was headed toward Hong Kong, a journey that was expected to take four days. But the ship got turned around and was lost at sea for a month, without enough food or water for the 37 cramped, exposed passengers. Their bellies ached from hunger as their clothes disintegrated from the sun and salt air. At one point a storm ravaged the vessel.I remember looking up; it was like the wave was going to engulf us,Ž she says. And then when we were on top of the wave; then we looked down and it was a dark, deep valley. It was so scary. Everyone was holding each others hand, and we were ready to die.ŽThat was the first time Noelle prayed. As a child, shed slept in bed with her mother and listened as her mother talked about God. A missionary gave Noelle a Bible when she was a girl, and on the ship she recalled a story about God calming the sea. Can you do it again?Ž she asked in the midst of the storm.Slowly, the ocean grew quiet. And the refugees found their way to an island off China. Their legs faltered when they tried to stand on land. Their stom-achs could digest only thin rice soup. But they were alive, and after 10 more days at sea, they made it to Hong Kong.Noelle and her siblings lived in a refugee camp for a year, waiting for an American group to spon-sor their passage to the United States. Finally they arrived in Chicago Heights, Illinois, in the winter of 1978.Id never seen snow before,Ž she says. It was shocking.ŽMy job is not just to translateAmerica gave her a new language and an opportunity „ now this interpreter is repaying the favorNoelle Nguyen is a longtime volunteer at the Culmore Clinic in Falls Church, Va. I see their needs and I want to ful“ ll that need with what I feel in my heart, with love,Ž she says. Love is the reason for everything.Ž [TOYA SARNO JORDAN/ THE WASHINGTON POST] By Raf CasertThe Associated PressBELLEAU, France „ It was the spring of 1918, and the German army was making a final push toward Paris. The only thing in their way was a contingent of Allied troops, includ-ing untested U.S. forces near the Marne River in northern France.Among them: U.S. Army 1st Lt. Gordon Kaemmerling, a precocious and athletic Harvard graduate who had jumped at the opportunity to help the United States leave its shell of isolationism and join the war.On June 6, 1918, the U.S. forces attacked, storming across the open fields near Belleau Wood. Germans sprayed them with shells and machine-gun fire from a densely forested hill. Without proper artillery cover, the Americans were mowed down easily at first.In the chaos, the 26-year-old Kaemmerling rushed to help his comrades, and was nearly torn in two by shrapnel and bullets. The bravery of Kaem-merling and others helped the Americans chase the German forces out of Belleau Wood by the end of the month. The battle became a defining moment in World War I, not just containing the German push along the Western Front but proving the Americans military mettle for all to see.Victory bonded the Allies, and that friendship became the cornerstone of global diplomacy for most of the last 100 years.That partnership is being celebrated during the centennial of the battle of Belleau Wood as the U.S. marks the Memorial Day holiday, even amid some trans-Atlantic strains. No retreatGermany acknowledged the arrival of the U.S. forces on the Western Front would be a burden, but peace with the Bolsheviks in Soviet Russia meant that German troops could reinforce another onslaught on France.It was a unique window of opportunity for the Germans, and when it came, they got within a weeks march from Paris. Victory after four years of fighting seemed possible.The American force was still considered a very untried organization, and among the French and British, they were not sure how well they would perform,Ž said retired U.S. Army Col. David S. Jones, a historian.The initial plan was to give many of the U.S. forces more time to train before being thrown into battle, but Germany had other ideas.In desperation, the French asked U.S. Gen. John J. Black JackŽ Per-shing for the immediate deployment of his some of his troops to stop the gap near the Marne, northeast of Paris. U.S. soldiers and Marines were soon sent off to Belleau.The combination of inexperience and gung-ho enthusiasm became the stuff of legend. The battle is one of the first things taught to any U.S. Marine, said Owen Gardner Finnegan, a Marine who served in Afghanistan and was visiting the Belleau Wood cemetery.Because of their ferocity, the Americans stopped the most advanced army in the world at the time in savage fighting,Ž Finnegan said.World War I battle of Belleau Wood was turning point for USFlowers are left at a memorial chapel at the World War I Aisne Marne cemetery Tuesday in Belleau, France.

** A12 Sunday, May 27, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Sean Sullivan and Michael SchererThe Washington PostRepublican fears that Sen. John McCains battle with cancer could make it harder for the GOP to keep its Senate majority have receded, with a crucial election deadline just days away.Friends who have visited McCain as he struggles with one of the deadliest forms of brain cancer are encour-aged by his recent state, though they recognize the 81-year-olds condition could deteriorate rapidly.Republicans in Arizona and Washington are increasingly hopeful McCain will be in office through May 30, the unofficial date for averting a special elec-tion for his seat this year. The GOP, which holds a narrow 51-49 majority, is already defending the seat held by retiring Ari-zona Sen. Jeff Flake, R. Another race in the state would give Democrats a new opening to seize control of the Senate.Under state law, Republican Gov. Doug Ducey would appoint a successor to McCain if the seat is vacant. Ducey is not speculating pub-licly about who he might appoint, even as Repub-licans in the state have mentioned his chief of staff and the state treasurer as possibilities. Meanwhile, state election officials are girding for a potential legal tussle over the question of whether an election should occur this year.If there was a vacancy today and we made a decision on yes, call a special election or no, [dont] call a special elec-tion ..., there is a 99.9 percent chance that liti-gation would ensue,Ž said Eric Spencer, election services director in the office of Arizona Secretary of State Michele Reagan, a Republican.McCain was diagnosed last summer with a glio-blastoma, an aggressive type of brain cancer with a poor prognosis. He has been away from the Senate since December undergoing treatment in his home state.For months, Republi-cans have feared the worst. While they still worry about the health and life of a man beloved by many in the party, they are less distressed „ though still a bit uneasy „ about having to fight to keep his seat in what is shaping up as a difficult election year for President Donald Trump and the GOP.Not as worried,Ž was how one Arizona Republican familiar with discussions in the party summed up the sentiment. Another Republican offered a similar assessment, saying we have to get through this month.Ž They spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive topic.Arizona election law says that when a Senate seat is vacated, it is filled at the next general elec-tion. The filing deadline for the November election is May 30 at 5 p.m. Many close observers have interpreted this to mean that if there is no vacancy by that time, a special election would happen in 2020, if triggered.But Spencer said the secretary of states office is not making any decla-rations about vacancies that dont exist now. He said factors like a July write-in deadline and guidance his office has previously issued to local officials about this years elections could lead to legal disputes.If there is a vacancy, Duceys decision will likely be influenced by when it happens.I think he has probably got different lists for different circumstances,Ž said a Republican strategist familiar with the gover-nors thinking, meaning some possibilities would be stronger to run in 2018 than 2020.His criteria for the job are pretty simple,Ž said the strategist, who spoke on the condition of ano-nymity. Number one they have got to be able to do the job. Second youve got to be able to keep the job. He is not going to appoint a placeholder. Third what he wants is somebody who actually will put Arizona first.ŽThat last part means that it has to be some-one who is not a national grandstander, the strate-gist said.The governor has made clear that this kind of speculation is totally inappropriate,Ž said Ducey spokesman Daniel Scarpinato.GOP more concerned with McCain than with midterms By Paul Sonne and Missy RyanThe Washington PostThe seeming collapse of the North Korea summit and the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal have led top officials in the Trump administration to once again make veiled references to military action, with President Donald Trump most recently touting American might in a speech Friday at the U.S. Naval Academy.But beyond the saberrattling is a sobering reality well known by strategists and planners at the Pentagon: The unlikely, worst-case sce-nario of sliding into open armed conflict with both Iran and North Korea simultaneously would strain the U.S. military to a degree few Ameri-cans could fathom.Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has repeatedly warned that an open conflict on the Korean Peninsula alone would be catastrophic, resulting in the sort of warfare the U.S. military hasnt seen in generations. The out-side chance of a conflict with Iran at the same time would present Pentagon leaders with logistical, tactical and personnel challenges unenviable for any commander.Former top Pentagon officials say the possibility of coinciding wars with Iran and North Korea remains extremely remote, and the United States could drift in the space between diplomatic breakthrough and all-out war for years. Still, if the dual wars were to occur, they would test decades of contingency planning that anticipates huge risks to the U.S. armed forces despite ultimate victory.Both fights would be costly,Ž said David Ochmanek, a senior researcher at the Rand Corp. and a former top Pentagon strategist in the Clinton and Obama administrations. In the end you would expect the U.S. and its allies to pre-vail but at a human and material cost that would be almost incalculable, particularly in the case of the Korea example.ŽFor decades dating back to the Cold War, planners at the Pentagon have grappled with the question of how the U.S. military should prepare for the remote possibil-ity of having to fight two full-scale regional wars at once. The new national defense strategy issued by Mattis, however, empha-sizes the need to build up military capability for a possible great-power conflict with Russia and China, and largely backs off the focus on waging two regional wars at once that once consumed the Pentagon.But as the U.S. military pivots its focus to countering Russia and China, regional challenges from Iran and North Korea continue to consume the administration and the public.If you want to ensure the Pentagon can actu-ally plan and prepare and resource for a potential conflict with China or Russia, then getting into conflict with Iran and North Korea is the exact wrong thing to do,Ž said Mara Karlin, an associate professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and a former Pen-tagon strategist.Whereas military plan-ners envision a war with North Korea as primarily a land and air fight, ultimately requiring a massive ground invasion and ending in regime change followed by stabilization, conflict with Iran would more likely be primarily a naval and air battle, focused on crip-pling specific missile and nuclear sites rather than dismantling the govern-ment itself.Simultaneous war-fare in the two countries would stress intelligence and reconnaissance assets such as drone overflights, which the U.S. military has come to rely on heavily, according to former Pentagon officials. Battles in two theaters also would strain Special Operations forces and possibly electronic warfare and tactical air support units, they said. Another challenge would be getting forces and equipment to both the-aters in a prompt manner and sustaining them once they arrive.Could US ght dual wars in NKorea, Iran?

** The News Herald | Sunday, May 27, 2018 A13By Brittney Martin, Katie Zezima and Todd C. FrankelThe Washington PostSANTA FE, Texas „ After a week of quiet introspection after a mass shooting took the lives of 10 people in a high school here, some students are beginning to emerge from a shocked, muted sadness to address what they feel is at the heart of the problem: The nations inaction on preventing pervasive gun violence.They have been tread-ing lightly for fear of upsetting the community at a particularly sensitive moment, in a place where firearms are embedded in the culture, a way of life. They saw the divisiveness that the activism around the Parkland, Florida, school massacre created and the angry public debates it drew in recent months. They are steering clear of discussing gun control, preferring to focus on gun safetyŽ as a way to show that they dont want to take guns away from their fellow Texans.But they are resolute in their belief that some type of change is needed to prevent the killing of more students.The truth is that what-ever we are doing as a society, or not doing, is not working,Ž said Megan McGuire, a 17-year-old junior at Santa Fe High School who on Friday spoke out publicly at an event in Houston with members of March for our Lives, a youth group that started after the February school shooting in Parkland. Inaction is not an option. We must do something and we must get it right.ŽThough those associated with the Parkland movement saw another grim opportunity to seek change and to gather momentum for gun control because of the Santa Fe attack, the shootings came with the reality that each community chooses to grieve „ and respond „ in a different way.Organizers began to trickle in to Santa Fe „ some dispatched by the Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence, a guncontrol group „ almost immediately after the shootings last week in a subtle effort to console, offer help and discuss the politics of guns. Parkland students and other activ-ists reached out but have kept a distance, sensing a lukewarm reception.There has been little support for calls for gun control here in this rural Texas town. Many do not blame guns for the tragedy, and this particular shooting lacks the obvious warning signs and suspicions that someone should have done something more to prevent it. Santa Fe has been grieving in private, a response more typical of such shootings than the burst of activism that happened after Parkland.I think that we made Parkland the new norm for mass shootings, and Parkland was an exception,Ž said Marcel McClinton, an organizer of Houstons March for Our Lives, who traveled to Santa Fe with a student activist and a Brady staffer. McClinton survived a shooting ram-page outside his church in 2016, when an attacker got off 200 rounds, killing one person and injuring six, including two law enforcement officers. He said the congregation drew close ranks after-ward. I think Santa Fes response is normal.ŽThe four Santa Fe students who spoke out Friday said that the two places have little in common despite their shared grief.Parkland, Santa Fe reactions divergentFollowing Texas shooting, students focus on gun safety rather than side with gun control activists


** A14 Sunday, May 27, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Gregory Katz, Renata Brito and Leo EnrightThe Associated PressDUBLIN „ In the end, it wasnt even close.Irish voters „ young and old, male and female, farming types and citybred folk „ endorsed expunging an abortion ban from their largely Catholic countrys constitution by a two-to-one margin, ref-erendum results compiled Saturday showed.The decisive outcome of the landmark referen-dum held Friday exceeded expectations and was cast as a historic victory for womens rights. Polls had given the pro-repeal yesŽ side a small lead, but suggested the contest would be close.Since 1983, the now-repealed Eighth Amendment had forced women seeking to terminate pregnancies to go abroad for abortions, bear children conceived through rape or incest or take illegal measures at home.As the final tally was announced showing over 66 percent of voters sup-ported lifting the ban, crowds in the ancient courtyard of Dublin Castle began chanting Savita! Savita!Ž in honor of Savita Halappanavar, a 31-year-old dentist who died of sepsis during a protracted miscarriage after being denied an abortion at a Galway hospital in 2012.With exit polls showing a win for abortion rights campaigners, Prime Min-ister Leo Varadkar called the apparent victory the culmination of a quiet revolution.Ž Later, he hailed the momentous outcome as a victory for Irelands future.I said in recent days that this was a once in a generation vote. Today I believe we have voted for the next generation,Ž said Varadkar, who is Irelands first openly gay leader as well as its first prime minister from an ethnic minority group.The next battleground is likely to be Irelands parliament, where the government led by Varad-kar hopes to capitalize on the fresh momentum and enact legislation spelling out the conditions under which abortions will be legal for the first time by the end of this year.Quiet revolution leads to win in IrelandA woman from theŽYesŽ campaign reacts Saturday at Dublin Castle in Dublin, Ireland, after the “ nal result was announced following the Irish referendum on the 8th Amendment of the Irish Constitution.

[PETER MORRISON/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Mehmet Guzel and Suzan FraserThe Associated PressYAVUZLAR, Turkey „ Farmer Abdulkadir Cekic was already struggling to make a living, snowed under by a bank loan he took out for the purchase of a 130,000-euro harvesting machine. The tumbling of the Turkish currency, the lira, has hit him hard, considerably increasing the cost of his yearly payments.This year I have (to pay) 10,000 Euros in installments for the combine harvester,Ž said the barley farmer from this Turkish village near the border with Syria. It used to be around 40,000 Turk-ish Lira. Now its 55,000 Turkish Lira.ŽThe lira has lost more than 20 percent of its value against the dollar since the start of the year, hurting many in Turkey, especially small business owners like Cekic who rely on imported machinery and goods. The coun-trys economic troubles have emerged as a key issue as Turkey heads into presidential and parliamentary elections next month.The lira this week slid to a series of record lows amid a global cur-rency sell-off and some concerns over President Recep Tayyip Erdogans economic policies. The drop forced the Turkish Central Bank to sharply raise its key lending rate to try and stem an outflow of capital from the country, control inflation and support the beleaguered currency.The rate increase came despite Erdogans strong pressure on the Central Bank to keep rates low. The increase helped the currency regain some of its value, but economists fear the country may not be out of the woods just yet. Erdogan opposes high interest rates which can support a currency and ease inflation but also hinder economic growth.Analysts say Erdogan, who has been in office since 2003 as prime min-ister and president and is vying for a new five-year term, called the elections more than a year earlier than scheduled as he saw that economic and financial trouble was brewing.The (risk) is still continuing because the volatility has not ended,Ž said economist Ozlem Derici Sengul, adding that the markets were still nervous about Erdogan retaining his influence over the Cen-tral Bank. Derici said the banks rate hike was still behind market rates.ŽIt was not clear how much impact the vola-tility would have on the elections.It will hurt some shares of the votes for the government but Im not sure how it will change the composition of the parliament or (affect) the re-election of the president,Ž Sengul said. Its a very close call.ŽErdogan has blamed economic woes on an alleged international conspiracy plotting to undermine Turkey. This week, he said the weak Turkish lira did not reflect the state of the countrys economy, citing Turkeys 7.4 per-cent growth rate.In a bid to ease fears, Erdogan has also vowed fiscal discipline and moves to rein in inflation and current account def-icit after the elections.Turks feel pinch from currency slideTurkish farmer Abdulkadir Cekic is interviewed by the The Associated Press, Thursday in Kilis, Turkey.

** A16 Sunday, May 27, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Andrew DaltonThe Associated PressLOS ANGELES „ Harvey Weinsteins arrest in New York Friday is a landmark moment in the #MeToo movement.Yet as authorities work through dozens of cases against famous figures in entertainment and other industries brought on by the Weinstein-inspired wave that began in Octo-ber, legal hurdles may make such prosecutions the exception.While men including Kevin Spacey and Mario Batali remain under investigation, the next round of charges could well be against Weinstein again, who also is facing scrutiny from authorities in Los Angeles and London.One expert said prosecutors in those jurisdictions are unlikely to stand down or shift priorities knowing that Weinstein is now charged with rape and another felony sexual assault in New York, where he pleaded not guilty Friday.You never know whats going to happen with the case there,Ž said Stacey Honowitz, a longtime prosecutor of sex crimes in Broward County, Florida. We dont go easy. Nobodys going to drop the ball and let New York do it.ŽShe said it is more likely that authorities in other cities will be energized, and able to build off the charges.Theres always strength in numbers,Ž Honowitz said.Stanley Goldman, a professor at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, said last months conviction of Bill Cosby for sexual assault dating to 2004 has likely been propelling prosecutors forward in other places.I think perhaps the Bill Cosby conviction really gave them hope that the atmosphere may have changed, in the older cases where this has been hard to prove, that maybe theyve got more of a chance now,Ž Goldman said Friday.Yet finding prosecutable #MeToo cases has proven difficult.Los Angeles police said in December that they were investigating 27 entertainment figures, but none have yet resulted in arrests. And LA County prosecutors launched a task force in November to evaluate cases, but so far it has brought no charges.The biggest obstacles by far are statutes of limi-tations, which have had special prominence amid the #MeToo and Times Up movements because so many of the incidents involve women working up the courage to come forward after years of silence.Hundreds of women have alleged varying degrees of sexual misconduct from Oscar-nominated writer and director James Toback, yet prosecutors declined in April to bring criminal charges against him in the five cases they reviewed, citing expired statutes of limitations in every case.California, joining other states, recently eliminated its statute of limitations for rape, making the law a closer match for the #MeToo era, but most cases from before the changes are unaffected.Goldman said in the past the principle has been that its disruptive and unbalancing to society to go back and prosecute older crimes.If youre dealing with Kevin Spacey,Ž Goldman said, describing the thinking, its disruptive to pull somebody like that out of society after all these many years where people have worked for them, and are supported by them.ŽThat has been the case so far with several high profile cases presented to prosecutors, all of which emerged after Wein-steins downfall.Prosecutors declined to file charges against Roman Polanski over allegations by a woman who reported in October that the Oscar-winning director molested her when she was 10 years old in 1975. Polanskis attorney has denied the allegations. Los Angeles prosecutors cited the statute of limitations, but still want Polanski to return to the United States to face sentencing in a case in which he sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl in 1977.A case against Hollywood agent Adam Venit, who actor Terry Crews alleged groped him at a party in February 2016, was also rejected. Crews did not report the incident until November 2017, and prosecutors said that was too late.#MeToo cases face legal obstructionHurdles may make Weinsteins prosecution an exceptionHarvey Weinstein, right, appears at his arraignment with his lawyer Benjamin Brafman, in Manhattan Criminal Court on Friday in New York. Weinstein is charged with two counts of rape and one count of criminal sexual act. He was released on $1 million bail. [JEFFERSON SIEGEL/NEW YORK DAILY NEWS VIA AP, POOL] By Ahmed NamatallaThe Associated PressSEATTLE „ President Donald Trumps unwillingness to release his tax returns is helping renew a debate on whether the practice should be expected of elected federal office holders ahead of this years midterms.Although theres no constitutional requirement for candidates or elected officials to make their returns public, Trump has broken with more than four decades of tradition set by previous presidents. In Congress, almost half of lawmakers have called on Trump to disclose the doc-uments, but just 1 of every 10 have released their own, according to data compiled by Roll Call last year. In an election year where the balance of power in the House hinges on two dozen so-called toss-up districts, some candidates are capitalizing on the issue to claim the high ground in transparency.Most of those districts are held by Republicans trying to distance them-selves from Trump, but the strategy may pressure more legislators from both parties and candidates vying for their seats to disclose tax documents, according to Lee Drutman, senior fellow at New America, a nonpar-tisan research house.For Democrats, its a way of indirectly invoking the Trump issue without having to directly campaign against Trump in competi-tive districts,Ž Drutman said. Its a fair concern for people. If youre voting for a member of Congress, its reasonable to under-stand how they made their money and what the poten-tial sources of influence and conflict of interest are.ŽIn Washington states 5th District, Republican incumbent Cathy McMor-ris Rodgers released her returns last month for the first time since winning the House seat in 2004. The move came in response to a request by the Spokesman-Review newspaper, prompting her Democratic opponent Lisa Brown to do the same. The district, which borders Idaho and where McMorris Rodgers has enjoyed easy victories, is one of 24 clas-sified as toss-up contests in November by The Cook Political Report.In the last couple of years, the congresswoman felt that trust and confidence in representative government has been broken, so shes doing her part to restore it by doing what she believes is right,Ž said Jared Powell, a spokes-man for McMorris Rodgers. She wanted to show that she voted for the tax reform bill for all the right reasons, which is that it provides relief for the middle class, creates jobs, and makes filing easier.ŽTwo McMorris Rodgers constituents, interviewed in downtown Spokane, Washington, expressed modest interest in the issue of tax returns.I like it. Not that I read them,Ž said Joanne Krupke, 65, who lives near Daven-port, Washington. Just to show transparency.ŽSally Dashiell, 41, of Spokane, said she thinks politicians should generally release their tax returns.Id be for it,Ž she said. But its not a big deal.ŽLast year, the Republican-controlled House and Senate passed the biggest changes to U.S. tax laws in three decades over criticism from Democrats that they disproportionately benefit corporations and the wealthy. In addition to basic income and tax and charity payments, legislators returns would reveal capital market investments that could be impacted by those changes.Federal law requires candidates to file financial disclosure forms that record wide ranges, rather than specific values, of income and assets and dont show whether taxes were paid. At issue are peoples right to privacy and the potential usefulness of information obtained from tax returns, said Abigail Blanco, who teaches economics at the University of Tampa.If someones business dealings indicate theyre more inclined to engage in cronyism, thats important for people to know,Ž said Blanco, But if someone is making a half a million dollars from a legitimate business, then having people digging into their tax returns isnt very productive or indicative of whether or not theyre qualified to do their job on a national level.ŽDebate over practice ensues Democratic congressional candidate Lisa Brown, center, who is challenging U.S. Rep.

** The News Herald | Sunday, May 27, 2018 A17By Mark ShermanThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ A flood of lawsuits over LGBT rights is making its way through courts and will continue, no matter the outcome in the Supreme Courts highly anticipated decision in the case of a Colorado baker who would not create a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.Courts are engaged in two broad types of cases on this issue, weighing whether sex discrimination laws apply to LGBT people and also whether businesses can assert reli-gious objections to avoid complying with antidiscrimination measures in serving customers, hiring and firing employ-ees, providing health care and placing children with foster or adoptive parents.The outcome of baker Jack Phillips fight at the Supreme Court could indicate how willing the justices are to carve out exceptions to anti-discrimination laws; thats something the court has refused to do in the areas of race and sex.The result was hard to predict based on arguments in December. But however the justices rule, it wont be their last word on the topic.Religious conservatives have gotten a big boost from the Trump admin-istration, which has taken a more restrictive view of LGBT rights and intervened on their side in several cases, including Phillips.There is a constellation of hugely significant cases that are likely to be heard by the court in the near future and those are going to significantly shape the legal landscape going forward,Ž said Shannon Minter, legal director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights.Several legal disputes are pending over wedding services, similar to the Phillips case. Video producers, graphic art-ists and florists are among business owners who say they oppose samesex marriage on religious grounds and dont want to participate in same-sex weddings. They live in the 21 states that have antidiscrimination laws that specifically include gay and lesbian people. In California and Texas, courts are dealing with lawsuits over the refusal of hospitals, citing religious beliefs, to perform hysterectomies on people transitioning from female to male. In Michigan, the American Civil Liberties Union filed suit against the states practice of allowing faith-based child placement agencies to reject same-sex couples.Advocates of both sides see the essence of these cases in starkly different terms.What the religious right is asking for is a new rule specific to same-sex couples that would not only affect same-sex couples but also carve a hole in non-discrimination laws that could affect all communities,Ž said Camilla Taylor, director of constitutional litigation at Lambda Legal, which supports civil rights for LGBT people.Jim Campbell of the Christian public interest law firm Alliance Defend-ing Freedom said the cases will determine whether people like Jack Phillips who believe marriage is the union of a man and a woman, that they too have a legitimate place in public life. Or does he have to hide or ignore those beliefs when hes participating in the public square?Ž ADF represents Phillips at the Supreme Court.The other category of cases concerns protections for LGBT people under civil rights law. One case expected to reach the court this summer involves a Michigan funeral home that fired an employee who disclosed that she was transitioning from male to female and dressed as a woman.High Court justices near wedding cake decision The Supreme Court in Washington is seen Oct. 10 at sunset.
