With the official southern expansion kick o less than four months away, questions still remain about how passengers will travel to and from the Poinciana station, the last stop on the SunRail line. How will riders get to the station? Seventeen miles of new railroad track was laid in anticipation of SunRails latest eort to connect Osceola County commuters to Orange, Seminole and Volusia Counties beyond. e end of the line came near the intersection of Poinciana Boulevard and Old Tampa Highway. Its relatively close to the new Valencia campus, but miles from most homes in the Poinciana Officials knew from the beginning that creating strong Lynx bus routes would be essential to the success of the station. Dependable buses would also be imperative to eliminating trac congestion in that area. Osceola County Commissioner Viviana Janer told fellow board members on Monday that two of the three xed routes Lynx planned for Osceola Countys SunRail stations have now been eliminated. at leaves one bus route at the Tupperware station and none for the Poinciana station.

Angel Luis Olmeda Rivera, 44, currently sits in the Osceola County Jail aer he was charged with firstdegree murder of the victim, who has yet to be identied. According to a Kissimmee Police Department report, ocers responded to Cheo Auto Repair, 410 E. Donegan Ave. at about 8:40 a.m., where they found the victim lying on his back near a Dumpster. It was immediately noticeable the victims head appeared to be totally missing and the only thing le in its place was a puddle of what appeared to be blood, brain matter and broken pieces of skull, Police Det. Gary Johndro wrote in the report. Three cars that were parked around the victim had, what appeared to be, brain matter and blood sprayed on them. It appeared the head of the body had been beaten so violently and repeatedly, that numerous pieces of it had own o during the attack and had been ung all over the area, Johndro wrote. A wooden board that was several feet long was found near the victim with blood splatter on it. Pieces of a vacuum cleaner also were found. Both items appeared to be used to beat and kill the victim, the report stated. Video surveillance from the auto repair shop shows Rivera, at about 3:15 a.m., attack the victim near the Dumpster with punches and kicks. He then stomps on the victim and uses the items to beat the man. Aer relentlessly attacking the man, Rivera is seen leaving, but then returns to the area and begins attacking the victim again, according to video surveillance. Rivera leaves, but returns a third time and beats the victim for several more minutes. Aer Rivera was identied by law enforcement ocials through video surveillance, he was located by an Osceola County Sheriffs Office deputy on March 17 and placed under arrest for property crimes. He had damaged some cars at another auto shop before the murder, according to the report. Rivera was taken to the Kissimmee Police Department to be interviewed. Aer being read his Miranda rights, Rivera claimed to have health issues and could not remember the last few days, the report stated. Johndro told Rivera that he severely injured someone and had committed murder. Angel looked at me, smiled and laughed at this. He did not appear shocked, remorseful or concerned with any of this information; instead he seemed amused by it, Johndro wrote. Johndro then ended the interview and Rivera was booked into the jail on no bond.SUNRAILContinued from Page 1 Noranne Downs over two years ago to help finance feeder bus service in Osceola County. Apparently they ran some models and they dont think theres enough people in Poinciana who will ride these buses to SunRail, Janer said at the Monday meeting. ey want people to go to the downtown Kissimmee station [if they need to take a bus. So my argument to them was, Why did you build a station in Poinciana? Fewer opportunities in the south? Janer has been actively involved in bringing SunRail to Osceola County since she took oce in 2015. She also has a big stake in its local legacy; last month, she was appointed chair of SunRails Board of Directors. Janer told her fellow commissioners that the Osceola County southern expansion isnt being granted the same options as its neighbors to the north. Instead of oering xed bus routes, Janer stated that Lynx is currently only oering whats known as a NeighborLink connection, or an on-call shuttle bus service. It doesnt make sense that were not given the same opportunity that our other local funding partners were granted when they had xed bus routes to all their major stops, she said. Janer insisted that without better public transit options, Poinciana residents will have to drive and park at the SunRail station, which would do nothing to ease trac woes in that area. Its no secret that Poinciana and Pleasant Hill have been nominated worst local traffic in the nation because of the number of cars on the road, Janer said. It doesnt make sense to tell people then, to drive to the Poinciana station. A slap in the face Executive Director of Transportation and Transit Tawny Olore informed commissioners that Poinciana stands to be the only station out of SunRails 16 stops without a public bus operating during peak commuter times. Commissioner Brandon Arrington, whose district includes the station in question, commiserated with Janer. He called the recent elimination of fixed bus routes a slap in the face. is is a system thats supposed to work together, Arrington said. If we cant gure out how to get the bulk of that ridership on to it, theres not going to be any money at the fare box to be able to support the train in the long run. Commissioner Fred Hawkins Jr. offered to write a letter to FDOT requesting that officials appear before the board and provide clarity and possible solutions regarding Poinciana in upcoming months. CATTLEContinued from Page 1 Main Street employee. e cattle industry is a part of the heritage in Osceola County, and it made me feel happy to see so many people interested in it. The cattle drive on Broadway serves as the ocial kick-o to the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo (RNCFR), one of the largest rodeo competitions in the country. Osceola County won the bid from Oklahoma City in 2015. The Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association national semi-final event, made up of over 200 of the top barrel racers, steer wrestlers, bull riders and other rodeo sports pros in the country, begins tonight and lasts through Sundays championship ceremony at the Silver Spurs Arena. RNCFR Senior Accounts Manager Lydia Bell said the parade of about 40 local horses and cows down Broadway is meant to spark public interest and community engagement in the RAM Rodeo. The final national competition is in Las Vegas, and this is the event the cowboys have to pass to get to our organizations equivalent of the Super Bowl, said Bell outside the Osceola County Courthouse lawn. Bell said the green eld nestled between the two courthouses serves as the cattle drives launching point for historical reasons. When Kissimmee was first being settled, lost cattle were tied up outside the red brick courthouse here until their owners came to claim them, Bell said. Osceola County has a long history with cattle, ranching and rodeos, and we wanted to remember that during our event. County commissioners saddled up on horseback alongside residents of all ages as the procession made its way along one of the oldest cities in Kissimmee. The cattle drive ended in live music and tailgating festivities at Three Sisters Speakeasy. Tickets for the RNCFR range from $10 to $20 for single nights (Sunday afternoons finale is $25). Age 12 and under are free except for Family Day Saturday afternoon (18 and under or college students with identification are free). Parking is free. Suspect bludgeons victims head Kissimmee man killed in trafc crashA Kissimmee man was killed in a crash early Tuesday morning after loosing control of the vehicle he was driving. According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Moses Rodriguez, 20, was driving a 2007 Ford Focus southbound on Poinciana Boulevard, near Isles of Bellalago Drive, at about 12:30 a.m. For an unknown reason, Rodriguez lost control of the car and left the roadway. e vehicle then overturned several times and Rodriguez was partially ejected. He was pronounced dead on scene. He was not wearing a seat belt, the report stated. Troopers are asking for any witnesses of the crash to call 407-737-2213. e crash remains under investigation. Truck spills gallons of fuel on I-4 A St. Cloud truck driver spilled about 100 gallons onto Interstate 4 on March 24 aer hitting a wall. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Enrique Hernandez, 72, was driving a 2011 semi-truck eastbound on Interstate 4 at in Orange County at about 9:40 a.m., when he said a vehicle cut him o. e le side of the truck struck the center wall and about 100 gallons of diesel fuel spilled out onto I-4, the report stated. e crash remains under investigation.

Page 4 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Thursday, April 5, 2018 Its printed in big bold letters on my airline ticket: PRIORITY BOARDING. I paid $75 extra for those words, but it will be worth it. Right? Ill get on the plane before all these other passengers. By the time they board, my smug body will be comfortably seated, my bag securely stored overhead. I might even be asleep. Wait, it looks like the jet bridge door is open. Time to line up. Good evening, passengers, and thanks for waiting. We are all set to board Flight 834 to Omaha. First, wed like to invite our diamond, tungsten, silver, ruby, emerald, elite, privileged, choice and big kahuna passengers to board. If any of those words are printed on your boarding pass, you fly so often that you havent seen your kids in 10 years. Welcome aboard, and thank you for your loyalty. Feel free to elbow other passengers as you make your way to the head of the line. Loyalty has its privileges. Next wed like to invite those people who need a little extra time making their way down the jet bridge. Youre the ones who are going to make this flight 30 minutes late because, lets face it, you really should be taking Amtrak. Trains sit at the station for hours, doors wide open, before they go anywhere. Also, it appears some of you are in your early 20s and look like you could run a triathlon at a moments notice. But if you say you need extra time to board, who are we to argue? Next wed like to board all the friends and relatives of those passengers who claimed they needed extra boarding time because, hey, you may as well be part of this ruse. Take your time; the group who limped down the jet bridge ahead of you miraculously recovered from whatever affliction they told us required extra boarding time. ey are saving spots in the overhead bins for all your personal items. Next wed like to board all passengers accompanied by dogs, cats, guinea pigs, parrots, peacocks, raccoons, ferrets, endangered white rhinos, or any other species dubbed support animals. As we all know, support animal is another phrase for too cheap to pay crating fees. Please have your animals refrain from biting other passengers, at least until the beverage service is completed. Next wed like to board families traveling with small children, which makes absolutely zero sense because small children can move faster than your average gazelle and dont need extra time to board. ankfully this ight does not contain any small children with support gazelles. Next wed like to board anyone dumb enough to sign up for our airlines credit card because we told you that doing so meant you received early boarding. And you did! Sort of. Next wed like to board our really angry passengers. ose are all passengers who have Group 1 written on their boarding passes and erroneously assumed theyd be on the plane by now. Apparently, our gate agents neglected to tell you that Group 1 really means Group 7. We apologize for this oversight. Now wed like to briefly halt the boarding process, because we told too many people they could board early and the jet bridge looks like where the 405 meets the 110 in Los Angeles. We will resume boarding shortly. Thank you for your patience. Now wed like to board Greg. And, Greg, please be advised there is no more overhead bin space so were going to have to check your shave kit to Omaha. But you do get to board through the lane marked, Priority Boarding. Pretty cool, right? OK, it appears we are all set to, wait a minute, weve just been informed that this ight has mechanical problems. As a result, we will be delayed three hours. Please gather your belongings and exit the aircra. Hang on to your boarding passes, because we will reboard in the exact same order.

Page 6 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Thursday, April 5, 2018 OSCEOLA COUNTY HISTORY Family is the key word for the Laniers. e Lanier chronicle is but one example of a story repeated oen in Central Florida Hhstory: cracker cowmen settling the land and building enterprises, relying on family support and inter-generational ties to create communities and ensure success. e extended Lanier family is well known to long time Osceola County residents, marrying into other pioneer families and becoming prominent citizens. The Lanier House, a part of the Pioneer Village, is an integral part of telling thestory of one of Osceola Countys pioneering families. is home that currently lives at our Pioneer Village presents an example of the Florida Cracker architectural style, and is an original built in Osceola County sometime in the late 1800s. rough this authentic structure, the Osceola County Historical Society is able to share the narrative of an average Pioneering family in Florida for growing generations. Historical Background: John Lanier, family patriarch for the Lanier family, was called one of Floridas pioneer Cattle Kings by Myrtle Hilliard Crow. He was born in 1805 and migrated to Florida sometime prior to his second marriage in 1839. He and his wife, along with their children, moved through Florida throughout the 1800s as John established himself as a cattle rancher. According to Crows book, Old Tales and Trails, the Lanier family arrived what is now Osceola County in the late 1860s as John searched for better cattle pasturage. ey purchased property a few miles southwest of Kissimmee from Mrs. Malinda Yates, and began settling into their new home at the Point. John Lanier died in 1888 at the age of 83, leaving a large line of younger Laniers still farming and ranching in Osceola County. During the last decade of his life, John witnessed huge changes in Osceola County, including the huge Disston drainage projects that changed the shape of the land and water. Raymond Lanier, Johns grandson, is credited with purchasing the Lanier Home that is now located within the Pioneer Village. The Lanier House owned by the Osceola County Historical Society was originally located at 1964 Ham Brown Road, and according to property tax records, it rst appears as a taxable property in 1906. However, researchers believe that the house was built by Jonathan Strickland in the late 1800s, and sold to the Lanier family in 1905. The narrative for this house spans 100 years of history for the Lanier family, from John Laniers birth in 1805 and arrival in Florida in the 1830s, to his grandson Raymonds purchase of a home and farm land in 1905 where he starts a family in the 1920s. It shows the Lanier family assisting each other over three generations, sharing work, property, and other resources. They represent a major theme in central Florida history as cattlemen migrate to the area with their families, settle down, establish communities, expand into vegetable and citrus, and start businesses to diversify their income. The home itself is representative of the Cracker House style from the late 1800s in Florida. e double pen type or dog-trot house was commonly built in a log construction form in the region until the mid to late 19thcentury, and then continued to be constructed in dimensional lumber forms as the sawmill industry began to exploit the vast resources of yellow pine and cypress timber in the late 19thto early 20thcentury. e houses commonly have porches across their fronts, broad roof overhangs as their eaves, and gable ends that oen extend beyond chimneys placed at the gable ends. e style is most associated with the ability to provide maximum shade from the sun to the interior spaces while also encouraging a cooling air ow around and through the structure. e construction of the house is very distinctive, and it is a unique survivor of the time period. It may be the only surviving example of frameless, box or sawmill construction in the region. In 1986, the home was donated to the Osceola County Historical Society by Ross Lanier. It was relocated to the Bass Road location and restoration was completed to return the house back to what it would have looked like in its day. e unique construction of the home, as well as its importance as a relic of an Osceola County Pioneer family, makes this building incredibly rare and valuable to the history of Osceola County. ank you to our friends at the Osceola County Historical Society for providing the editorial content and photos to bring this section to you.The Lanier Family Monday Saturday 8:30am-9:00pm Sunday 11:00am-6:00pmTROPICAL FORDhas yourNew F-250!VEHICLE MUST BE FINANCED WITH FORD MOTOR CREDIT TO QUALIFY FOR ALL INCENTIVES & REBATES.

Page 9. Sports Editor Celebration Storm lacrosse, the only public school in Osceola County to oer the game, is in its h season, and looks to be a state playo contender. e Storm, fresh o their rst playo appearance last season, are 8-2 thus far this year aer a 15-9 win over East Ridge on Monday, with losses to state powers West Orange and Hagerty. Celebration is a perfect 5-0 thus far in District 13 play against Polk County opponents. e team features 11 seniors, including team captains Katie Arce (Bentley (Mass.) University), Olivia Warner (Palm Beach Atlantic) and Kelly Alksninis (Navy), who have signed scholarships to play at Division II schools or at a service academy. Arce, an attacker, has scored 36 of Celebrations 151 goals, and also leads the team with 28 assists. A newcomer, freshman midelder Kaelyn Figueras (28 goals, 11 assists) is second and and has controlled 37 draws. She is part of a group of six freshmen on the roster and four returning sophomores coached by Beverly Alksninis, who said theyll keep the program going next year. We were able to eld a JV team this year as well with many girls who are just learning the game, the coach said. ere are many who will be strong additions to the future varsity team. No cuts were made this season as we want as many girls as possible to have the opportunity to learn and play. We are continuing to build our program and I feel we should be as inclusive as possible. I just wish more schools in Osceola County would pick up the sport. Olivia Warner commands the mideld. Her tremendous ball handling skills make her a stat leader in draw control and ground balls. Sophomore goalie Vivian Spencer the rock star of the defense has 82 saves thus far. She is a leader on defense with great eld communication skills and a positive, supportive attitude that pumps up her teammates, Alksninis said. I have had several coaches approach me after games to specically compliment Vivians performance. e District 13 tournament will be held at Celebration; the top four teams in the standings will meet in the seminals on April 17, e two seminal winners meet in the championship April 19 for the right to play in the regional playos, where the Storm ended the season with a 14-7 loss to Tampa Newsome in the rst round.Calles a force for Harmony in both offense and defense Sports Editor If your soccer team is facing an opponent with a stout defense, you either have a plan, or youre in trouble. If that opponent gets goal-scoring oense as well from that defense, then your plan is probably in trouble, too. Through her junior season, Harmony junior defender-turned-scorer Yeni Calles spelled her rst name with a capital T enough times to earn this seasons honor as the Osceola NewsGazette Female Soccer Player of the Year. Despite lining up in Longhorns Coach Scott Marlegas at-back defense next to fellow center back Morgan Cecil last years Player of the Year Calles was second on the team in goals (15) and assists (11). The Lady Longhorns, who defended their Orange Belt Conference and 5A-9 district championships, pitched 16 shutouts during the 2017-18 season, and Calles played a large role at both ends of the eld. Despite being a defender at heart, it was very common to see Calles use her speed to bring the ball up a wing, or even through the middle, and feed one of Harmonys lethal forwards or put a shot on net herself while catching an opponents defense oguard and at-footed. Yet more of what she talks about is what she didnt do or couldnt accomplish. Individually I could have done better, been better on defense or better distributing the ball, she said. Despite losing in the first round of the playos, I think we proved to programs around the area were a solid team, and am so proud of what we accomplished. Despite playing on a completely higher plane than their county and District 5A-9 opponents, outscoring them 98-0 in 13 matches, the Longhorns, for the second straight year, fell to Vero Beach in the regional playoffs. After thinking they won on a direct penalty kick in sudden-death overtime, the eld referee waved o the goal saying the kick was not deected in by a player, and the Indians would win in penalty kicks after 80 scoreless minutes. It had to go off (teammate Lindsay) Larisa or the keeper, Calles said. For a while that kept me up at night. It would have better turnabout for what she did to opposing defenses by design, Marlega said. We made it part of our game plan to get her forward into space with the ball, the coach said. She excels in the dierent aspects of defense. Shes good in zone, defending strikers 1-on-1, and shes a good aerial defender despite being small in stature. Against Vero Beach (in the playos), she took their stud striker, who had 50-some goals coming in, and just shut her down, and then took one of the penalty kicks (and nailed it). Calles said some of that comes from coaching, in all the places she gets it. Shes one of two county players in the Orlando City club program.NEWS-GAZETTE PHOTO/MARTIN MADDOCKHarmony center back Yeni Calles, shown in the District 5A-9 championship game against St. Cloud, scored 15 goals from a defensive position, where she helped anchor a defense that tallied 16 shutouts during the season. See Calles, Page 9.Orlando City kicks into win column, beats NYRB 4-3 Sports Editor Orlando City Soccer picked up its rst victory of the 2018 Major League Soccer season, and in true Lions form, there was plenty of drama to go with it. Dom Dwyer, in his rst action of the season, scored twice to dig Orlando out of a 2-1 decit then, aer the New York Red Bulls scored in the 82nd minute to get rid of that lead, Josue Colman deected in a Scott Sutter shot for the game-winner in a 4-3 thriller in front of 23,257 fans at Orlando City Stadium. Orlando Coach Jason Kreis called the effort a hard fought win. Really difficult to get that result today, he said. Big, big credit to all the players that participated in that match and put their absolute best foot forward, because I think without 100 percent commitment we dont walk out of here with all three points. Really pleased from an eort and commitment point of view, no doubt. I think there was so much pent up emotion on our parts to get that rst win of the season, especially now at home. Now I think we can put that in our pockets and hopefully really improve as we move forward. The Lions (1-2-1, 4 points) will try to turn it into a streak when they host the Portland Timbers (0-22, 2) on Sunday at 4 p.m. Orlando answered an early New York goal when Justin Meram found a wide open Will Johnson for the tapin. It was Johnsons 30th career MLS regular-season goal. After New York retook the lead 2-1, Dwyer went to work and gave the Lions their rst lead of the season. Two minutes aer the Red Bulls scored, he worked his way free on a corner kick, dove at Yoshi Yotuns delivery and burrowed it into the net. The first corner right before that almost went it, so I just put myself in that same position and then actually got myself in front of the Red Bulls, he said. en I dont really know what part of the body it went o cause it was the back of my head but there was a goal. Shortly into the second half, Dwyer again worked himself free, took Mohammed El-Munirs See Lions Page 9.

SPORTS BRIEFSAll of my coaches push me hard, my teammates support me a lot, and my Dad has done a lot to get me where I am, she said. From there Im just working on having a better vision of the eld and seeing plays develop. Marlega said he doesnt question that Calles will come into her senior season next winter an even more polished player thanks to all her hard work that he doesnt see. Shes a player whos always working at her game, he said. I enjoy coaching her, she pushes herself to get better and she developed as a vocal leader and she grew into that role at just the right time for us. Shes really becoming a complete player. Marlegas not the only one noticing. Calles said she has the attention of a small handfuls of Division I and II programs to play in college, and hopes to land in one with a good pre-law program. Between now and then is her senior season, which shell share with nearly a dozen other seniors on the roster who look to take the Longhorns back to the state tournament for the first time since 2011. We want to make it farther into the playoffs than we ever had, Calles said. We know Vero Beach is the hurdle, we expect to see them again next year. Vero Beach, you have trouble.CALLESContinued from Page 8.PHOTO/ORLANDO CITYOrlando City forward Dom Dwyer, named Man of the Match for his two-goal performance Saturday, celebrates with Lions fans after the 4-3 victory over the New York City Red Bulls. The Lions return to action on Sunday at home against the Portland Timbers at 4 p.m.LIONSContinued from Page 8. throw in and ripped a shot past New York goalie Luis Robles to make it 3-2. Dwyer, who was hobbled by a preseason hamstring issue and missed the teams rst two matches, provides a spark that fans saw Saturday, Kreis said. Super to have him back. From one particular point of view, just tactically, he gives us a little bit more of a true No. 9, Kreis said. Weve been kind of playing without one for the first three matches so to have a true target there, a true player thats going to be in the box to nish things is real nice for us from a tactical point of view. The teams tangled through the second half, and the Red Bulls equalized o a free kick, when Aaron Long headed home a pass in the 82nd minute. But, in usual Lions manner, the end of the game got fun. Capping a period of extended Orlando possession, Kljestan fed Sutter with plenty of space in front. He ried a shot that deected o Colmn, past a perplexed Robles and into the net. It was Colmns rst MLS goal in his Orlando City Stadium debut. Saturday also marked the home debut of midelder Sacha Kljestan, who wore the captains armband and picked up an assist. I didnt expect a 4-3 game. Those dont come around very often, but Im glad we came out on the winning side, he said. Despite them rotating a lot of them are natural born champions. ey came out hot; they came to play and I think we started a little bit slow and it took us some time to grow into the game. Id love to say Dom will get two and Id get two every game and life will be perfect although I know thats not going to happen, but its a step in the right direction. Ive said that Dom and I need to continue to work together and get to know each other on the eld and our tendencies. Hopefully by the end of the season were ring, but today is a good step. We didnt have a great start, weve gone down 1-0 I think in all four games this year and we have had an uphill battle. We started anxious and then going down 1-0 you start to feel the pressure even more. I think we had a good reaction tonight. Every time we gave up a goal, we came right back and scored so that part is important. I think we need to learn lessons from this game.

The festival will now run weekends through April 29, giving guests some extra time to explore the 60 unique eats, 70 cra brews and 50 wines and spirits. e extended dates will include new Latin-inspired menu items, prepared by SeaWorlds Executive Chef Hector Colon. Were going to have some beautiful and delicious food, said SeaWorld Marketing Manager Maribel Alicea. Chef Hector is amazing. He has infused a lot of Latin avors into this menu. Two of the new menu items include Mofongo with Carne Frita and Empanadilla Loca. e Mofongo with Carne Frita Colons personal favorite consists of garlic mashed plantains with onion mojo, served with fried pork. I love the empanada, I could have one every day, said Colon. But the Mofongo is something I dont do every day, and I love to eat it. Especially when its homemade and fresh. The Empanadilla Loca is a pizza empanada, with cheese, ground beef, mayo-ketchup, lettuce and tomato, uniquely served on a crushed Coca-Cola can. The Coke can is just a holder that I use, said Colon. Every time I make the empanada, it ips and ips. Its like when you make a taco at home. So the Coke can helps to hold it up and in place. Other menu items include Lechon Asado (traditional, roasted pork rubbed with Caribbean seasonings, pigeon peas and choice of ripe or sweet plantains), Pincho con Tostones (skewered, amegrilled chicken or pork with a sweet and spicy BBQ sauce and served with fried plantains), Empanadilla de Pizza (pastry lled with mozzarella cheese and zesty tomato sauce), Empanadilla de Carne (pastry filled with savory ground beef), Empanadilla de Pollo (pastry lled with seasoned pulled chicken), and Bacalaitos (a thin, crispy salted codsh pancake). Along with great new food will come great new entertainment. Guests can expect live musical performances every weekend, featuring popular reggaeton, salsa, Latin pop and merengue concerts. Performers have yet to be announced, but NKlabe will take the stage on April 15 for the festivals original closing date.

Page 14 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Thursday, April 5, 2018 Manufacturer PhotosFinal Run for High-Performer Copyright, Motor Matters, 2018 FOR THE LATEST NEWS WEBSITE AROUNDOSCEOLA.COM FOCUS RS FORD Motor Matters Introduced as a specialty model just two years ago, the 2018 Ford Focus RS enters its last year of production making it an instant collectible. If youve been on the fence about getting a Focus RS, its time to jump down and claim yours before theyre gone. Aer all, this is the most potent Ford Focus ever created. Powered by a 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the Focus RS employs 350 horsepower and 350 lb.-. of torque to motivate its 3,434 pounds. It will run from 0-to-60 in under 5 seconds. Whats more, the Focus RS has a sophisticated all-wheel-drive system with a torque-vectoring rear differential; four-piston 350mm Brembo brakes, Recaro seats and electronically adjustable shocks. e driver can engage Sport, Track or Dri modes at the touch of a button. And, in Dri mode, can go screaming into a corner too hot, wait for the tail to step out, countersteer just a bit, and giggle like a toddler with a new toy as the Focus holds itself on line and dris through the turn. e Focus RS can also be tailored to any given driving situation. e suspension system and steering response are independently adjustable. us, you can soen the dampers to deal with rough pavement, even while keeping steering and throttle response advanced-with traction and stability control minimized. Ford delivers this hatchback wearing a set of the most aggressive performance tires available, the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 on 19inch wheels. It would be irresponsible to unleash this much performance potential on the general public without adequate brakes. To that end, those big Brembos are capable of hauling the Focus RS down from OH MY GOODNESS WERE GONNA DIE over and over again-without exhibiting any fade. ey are also easily modulated, so the driver can call up the exact amount of braking needed with outstanding pedal feel. ese brakes are just as much about control as they are about stopping the car completely. OK, thats the good news. Heres the rest of the story. When all is said and done, we are still basically talking about a Ford Focus. The premium youll pay over and above the cost of a standard Focus, or even the Focus ST, goes into the mechanicals. Pricing starts at $41,120. Inside other than the Recaros and a sport steering wheel the driver is behind the wheel of a Ford Focus. All of the instrumentation, as well as the cabin materials, are basically the same. Navigation was added as an option for 2018 and the Recaros are poweradjustable; but other than that, its a Focus. On rough roads, the driver will immediately realize the Focus RS engineering team sacrificed ride quality to the powers of handling. While not exactly track-focused, the Ford excels in that environment, even as it leaves a bit to be desired in terms of comfort and civility on the street. And again, were talking about an endof-production run of an exceptionally high performing automobile one enthusiasts recognize as being very desirable.SPECIFICATIONS 2018 FORD FOCUS RSVEHICLE TYPE 5-passenger AWD compact hatchback BASE PRICE $41,120 (as tested: $41,995) ENGINE TYPE EcoBoost turbocharged 4-cyl. w/DI DISPLACEMENT 2.3-liter HORSEPOWER (net) 350 at 6000 rpm TORQUE (lb.-ft.) 350 at 3200 rpm TRANSMISSION 6-speed manual OVERALL LENGTH 172.8 in.

Thursday, April 5, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 15 Succulents can be just what indoor or outdoor gardens need. Even though succulents are becoming more popular, there are still some people who are unaware of their attributes. By learning more about succulents, people may become devotees of these unique plants. e word succulent brings to mind juicy, savory foods. But succulents arent meant to be consumed. In fact, they get their mouthwatering name from their uncanny ability to store water in eshy stems or leaves. at means they do not require frequent watering like other plants might. Succulents also may prove more durable in the face of drought and are a handy plant for forgetful gardeners or those who travel oen and want something more hands-o in their gardens. According to the succulents resource Succulents and Sunshine, most succulents prefer warm temperatures and are not very cold-tolerant. However, there are some varieties that can survive freezing temperatures. Still, for most succulents, its best if they are kept in warm, moderately sunny conditions. e DIY Network says succulents grow best in bright light, but not always in full, hot sun. Succulents also may attract gardeners thanks to their diverse looks. Better Homes & Gardens says that color variations of succulents are quite varied and include green, yellow, burgundy, white, blue-green, pink, red, and variegated combinations. Their shapes can be just as diverse, with many having pointy, rounded, spiky, or rued leaves. People may be particularly familiar with one type of succulent: cacti. ese traditional desert-dwellers are prized for their waterretention abilities, but some seem downright scary with their prickly exteriors. While all cacti are succulents, its important to note that not all succulents are cacti. Less needle-like succulents include aloe, jade, snake plant, and agave. Hens and chicks (sempervivum) and wax plant (hoya) are other succulents to consider. Searching for succulents online is another great way for gardeners to discover these wonderful plants.Getting to know succulents Preparing garden beds for spring and beyond CONTACT BRIAN MCBRIDE EDITOR EMAIL BMCBRIDE@OSCEOLANEWSGAZETTE.COM Gardening enthusiasts may have been thinking about their landscape plans throughout the winter, eager to once again get their hands dirty with soil. Whether a home gardener is making preparations for edible crops or beautiful owers, he or she must take time to make the soil amenable to planting. To establish hearty, durable plants, gardeners can focus on three main areas: addressing soil composition, cultivating and adding nutrients. Many gardeners prefer growing a variety of plants in their gardens. Such an approach requires taking inventory of the type of soil in ones garden and making the necessary modications so that the types of vegetables, herbs, shrubs, or owers that will be planted can grow in strongly. In fact, according to the plant company Proven Winners, the most important step to developing good roots is preparing the soil. Take a sample of the soil and examine it to see what is present. If the soil is too full of clay, too sandy, too dense, or too loose, that can lead to problems where plants cannot grow in strong. Work with a garden center to add the right soil amendments to make a rich soil. is may include organic compost or manure, which will also add nutrients to the soil. Cultivation Cultivating the soil can involve dierent steps. Removal of weeds, errant rocks, roots, and other items will help prepare the soil. Mother Earth News suggests working on garden soil when the soil is damp but never wet; otherwise, garden soil can become messy and clumpy. Use a digging fork or shovel to lightly turn the soil when its mostly dry. Gentle tillings also can open up the soil to incorporate the nutritional amendments and relieve compaction that likely occurred from freezing temps and snow pressure. Tilling also helps with drainage and oxygen delivery to roots. e DIY Network suggests turning over soil at a depth of 12 inches to work the soil about the length of a shovel spade. However, the resource Earth Easy says that existing garden beds have a complex soil ecosystem and simply topdressing with compost or manure can be enough preparation for planting. Gardeners can experiment with the methods that work best for their gardens. Nutrition Testing the pH and the levels of certain nutrients in the soil, namely nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium, will give gardeners an idea of other soil additions that may be needed. Soils with a pH below 6.2 oen can benet from the addition of lime several weeks before planting. Soil tests will determine just how much fertilizer to add to the soil. Complete fertilizers will have equal amounts of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. Individual fertilizers can amend the soil with only these nutritional elements that are needed. Top-dressing empty beds with a layer of mulch or compost can prevent weed growth and preserve moisture until it is time to plant. If existing shrubs or plants are in garden beds, use more care so as not to disturb roots or dig too deeply. Preparing garden beds takes some eort initially, but can be well worth the work when plants ourish throughout the growing season. Select the right fertilizer for your needs For plants to truly ourish, the right growing conditions and soil that oers the right nutrients is of paramount importance. Fertilizer enhances soil so that plants and owers can thrive. However, fertilizer is not a one-size-ts-all mix. Choosing fertilizer can be a little overwhelming thanks to the variety of formulations available at neighborhood lawn and garden centers. Shelves contain all-purpose products, such as those billed as vegetable fertilizer, and even formulations geared toward specic ower varieties. Others may feature buzz words like all-natural or organic, and consumers may not be sure just what they need to keep plants healthy. e following guidelines can help any would-be gardener or landscaper grow more vibrant plants. Start with a soil test Its dicult to determine what plants need without an accurate picture of whats going on in the ground. A soil test can paint a picture of whats going on and indicate if any nutrients are lacking. A common misconception is that gardeners fertilize plants. But fertilizer amends the soil that feeds plants, according to the soil-testing lab professionals at Virginia Tech. Soil types vary by region, and conditions may even vary between spots on a landscape. Testing where the plants will be placed can yield the most accurate results. Soil tests are available at gardening centers and online. Otherwise, landscaping professionals can conduct tests. Know the N-P-K ratio Most fertilizers will come with information concerning the nutrients within. Most notably it will have a breakdown of how much nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P) and potassium (K) is in the mix. Judging by the soil test, gardeners can choose a product that will give them the right ratio to amend the soil for the type of plant they are hoping to grow. Complete fertilizers oen have NPK in the formulation. Incomplete fertilizers may have only one or two nutrients. is allows a person to customize fertilizer even more without overdoing it with a particular nutrient. A cursory knowledge of the plants being planted in the garden also can be helpful. Gardeners must recognize that some plants will not tolerate excess amounts of a particular fertilizer component, while some may need more. Checking books out of the library, seeking information online and consulting with landscaping experts will help expand homeowners knowledge about plant types and the needs of each particular plant they hope to grow. Solid and liquid fertilizer Fertilizers are generally sold in pellets, spikes and liquid forms. Pellets or granules are dispersed over large areas and will gradually oer nutrients when the soil is watered. Liquid fertilizer is concentrated and fast-acting. ese may be used for container plants or smaller areas. Spikes usually are placed in houseplants or to feed individual trees or shrubs. Depending on the formulation, fertilizer may need to be reapplied once a month or more. Consult the product packaging for the correct application advice. Fertilizer amends soil to grow stronger, more resilient plants. Stock up on gardening essentialsGardening attracts new devotees year aer year. While Baby Boomers may spend more on gardening than any other demographic, even millennials are getting on the gardening bandwagon. When it comes to outtting a gardening shed, gardeners will not want to be without certain tools and gear. Digging shovel: A rounded-blade digging shovel is needed to plant shrubs and trees as well as to excavate areas in a landscape. Rake: A rake can be used to clear the ground, remove thatch and leaves from a lawn and level soil in a garden bed.

A growing number of aging adults may find themselves playing a key role in their grandchildrens lives. According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, 2.7 million grandparents across the country are stepping into parental roles for their grandkids. Some assist their adult children while others have become the primary caregivers. Factors like military deployment, illness, incarceration, and substance abuse are forcing grandparents to take on responsibilities they may have thought were over. PBS reports that, between 2009 and 2016, the number of grandparents raising grandchildren in the United States rose by 7 percent. As grandparents navigate the unexplored waters of raising grandchildren, there are certain factors they need to consider. Legal advice or advocacy Certain circumstances may require grandparents to seek legal help so they can raise their grandchildren in lawful ways. If there is neglect, divorce, arrest, or other factors, it may be a smart idea for grandparents to seek the help of an attorney or advocacy group to clarify their legal rights and ensure access to grandchildren. In addition, grandparents may need certain legal documents, such as a power of attorney, citizenship papers, adoption records, or consent forms. Get educated e rules have changed since grandparents raised their own children. It is important they learn as much as possible on child safety guidelines. Consumer advocacy groups or pediatricians can help explain how guidelines have changed. New furniture and toys that meet current safety guidelines may have to replace older, unsafe items. Take care of yourself Raising grandchildren can be emotionally taxing, especially if poor circumstances led to the grandchildren being placed with family. It is crucial to recognize feelings and ones own health when caring for others. A grandparent who is exhausted or overwhelmed may not oer the appropriate care. Emphasizing ones own mental and physical health is essential, as is getting help and advice when its most needed. The organization AARP recommends compiling a list of support services, such as respite care providers, counselors and support groups. Grandchildren will have feelings, too Children, whether they are old enough to understand or not, may react to change dierently. Some children may act out while others may grow detached. Grandparents can focus on providing stable environments and offer support and consistency even if grandchildren are withdrawing or pushing their loved ones away with words or actions.

Thursday, March 29, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E1 Section E March 29, 2018 Tribune Triple EWednesday, July 15, 2015 EEE-1 www.citizentribune.com Tribune Expanded Electronic EditionBY MELISSA DARABIAN Associated PressLife is busy. We dont always have the luxury of thumbing through our favorite cookbooks, marking appeal ing recipes with sticky notes for dinners sometime off in the future when we will somehow have time to saltcure a cod or dry-age a side of beef in our garage fridge. Sometimes, we just need to get dinner on the table. It doesnt have to be fancy, but it should still be tasty and nutritious. Enter the chicken leg and thigh! Often overlooked by the healthy cook due to its higher fat content, dark chicken meat is underappreciated. Yes, the dark meat has a few more grams of fat than the white meat of the breasts (a 3 1/2-ounce serving of breast meat has about 4 grams of fat, while the same amount of dark meat has just under 6 grams). And the higher cholesterol of the dark meat means the breast probably still should be in your rotation. But chicken legs and thighs are lus cious in texture and full of avor and protein (about 28 grams per serving). They also are much lower in saturated fat than most cuts of red meat, and they offer more iron per serving than chicken breasts. Perhaps most impor tant of all for the busy weeknight cook is that bone-in dark meat chicken is very forgiving in terms of cooking time. Which is to say, it is very hard to overcook dark chicken meat. So on weeknights when my hus band and I both have to work and one daughter has dance and the other three have soccer, lacrosse and more soccer, I totally appreciate the forgiveness offered by the dark meat. One of my favorite weeknight chicken leg and thigh strategies is to load them up in a large plastic bag in the morning, dump in some veggies and a quick marinade, then just toss the whole thing into the refrigerator to sit all day. After work, I dump the con tents of the bag into a baking dish and pop it into the oven while I change into something more comfortable (by which I mean sweats). Dinner, done!WEEKNIGHT LEMON CHICKEN DINNER-IN-A-BAGStart to Finish: 1 hour, plus marinat ing Servings: 4 8 bone-in chicken drumsticks or thighs, or a mix 1/4 cup lemon juice 1/4 cup olive oil 3 cloves garlic, minced 2 teaspoons dried thyme 1/4 teaspoon red pepper akes (op tional) Kosher salt and ground black pep per 1 large red or yellow onion, cut into 8 wedges 4 medium red potatoes, halved Using a paper towel in each hand to help grip the chicken pieces, remove and discard the skin by pulling it off. In a 2-gallon zip-close plastic bag, mix together the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, thyme, red pepper akes (if using), and a hefty pinch each of salt and pepper. Add the chicken, onion and potatoes, seal the bag and gently turn over several times to evenly coat the contents with the marinade. Re frigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 12 hours, turning the bag once or twice if convenient. When ready to cook, heat the oven to 375 F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Dump the con tents of the bag onto the pan, spread into an even layer, then bake uncov ered until the chicken registers 175 F at the thickest parts, about 40 minutes. If the potatoes and onions brown too quickly on one side, turn them for more even cooking.

Tribune Triple EWednesday, April 4, 2018 EEE-1 www.citizentribune.comTribune Expanded Electronic Edition APThis March 18, 2018 photo shows baked chicken thighs with preserved lemons and artichoke hearts. Salty, sour and savory? BY SARA MOULTON Associated PressPreserved lemons, aka lemon pickles, are a delicious and unique treat that have long de livered a ton of salty and acidic crunch to the cuisines of North Africa, the Middle East and South Asia and to America in recent years. You can buy lemon pickles at a specialty store (or online) or you can make some at home. But both options have their problems. Lemon pickles from the store are often left to overstay their welcome and become rancid on the shelf, while making them at home can take up to a month be cause that's how much time they need to cure. Plus, you're gener ally forced to make a big batch because a minimum critical mass is required to produce enough juice to cover the lemons as they cure. This recipe offers a much quicker way to make lemon pick les. Usually, the lemons are cured whole. Here they are sliced thin, layered with salt and left to cure at room temperature for 12 to 48 hours your choice although the longer they cure, the softer the texture and the stronger the avor. Once cured, there's nothing left to do but rinse off your lemon pickles and decide which of a whole range of dishes they should glorify. You can add them as a garnish to soups, stews and roasted vegetables, chop and combine them with fresh herbs to top sh, slide them into a grilled cheese sandwich, or stir them into grain dishes. What about those artichokes? They're in the recipe because they play so nicely with lemons. I've called for frozen or canned artichokes, although you're wel come to use fresh artichokes if you have the energy to cut them into hearts. (They'll be delicious.) If you do roll with the canned or frozen kind, just be sure to pat the artichokes very dry and cook them in a hot pan to achieve a nice golden color. The beauty of this recipe is that once the lemon pickles are good to go, it takes no time at all to throw everything together. And the chicken, combined with a bit of wine, creates its own natural sauce as it cooks.Baked Chicken Thighs with Artichoke Hearts and Lemon PicklesStart to nish: 13 hours, (40 minutes hands-on) Servings: 8 2 1/2 lemons, preferably thinskinned 3 tablespoons kosher salt 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 8 medium chicken thighs One 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained, or one 9-ounce box defrosted frozen artichoke hearts 1/3 cup dry white wine 1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro, parsley or dill Rinse the lemons well and slice them crosswise 1/4-inch thick. Arrange half of the slices in one layer (or slightly overlapping) in the bottom of a noncorrosive baking dish or pie plate and sprinkle half the salt evenly over the slices. Repeat with the re maining slices and salt, cover and leave at room temperature for at least 12 hours and up to 48 hours. Rinse the lemons and remove the seeds. Only half will be used in this recipe; keep the second half, covered, in the refrigerator for other uses. The pickles will keep for two weeks in the fridge. Preheat the oven to 350 F. In a large ovenproof skillet heat the 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt on the skin side, reduce the heat to medium and working in batches if necessary (if all the chick en doesn't t easily in the pan), cook the chicken skin side down until the skin is nicely browned. Transfer the pieces to a plate and repeat with the remaining chick en if it didn't all t in the pan the rst time. Pour off all but 2 table spoons of the fat left in the pan. Pat the artichoke hearts very dry using paper towels. Add them to the skillet and cook them over medium-high heat, turning them occasionally until they are golden. Turn off the heat, return the chicken to the skillet, skin side up, and add half the pick led lemon slices. Pour the wine over the skillet and put the skillet on the middle shelf of the oven.

Foodies in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia have taken to social media to vent at the critique of the Malaysian-born cook's traditional and standard method for prepar ing chicken rendang. "The skin isn't crispy. It can't be eaten but all the sauce is on the skin I can't eat," one of the Mas terChef UK judges complained in a recent episode of the show. Online, Southeast Asians point ed out that the chicken is cooked in curry sauce, not fried, and is never crispy. Some accused the judges of neo-colonial attitudes and racism. Malaysian Prime Minister Na jib Razak also chipped in, posting a photo of chicken rendang on Twitter and light-heartedly asking whether anyone has ever eaten a crispy chicken curry. Malaysian Foreign Minister Anifah Aman said the judges were guilty of "whitesplaining." The contestant, Zaleha Kadir Olpin, was eliminated from the competition but took to Instagram to vow she'd never stop cooking the traditional way. Her offending rendang was presented as part of Malaysia's national dish, Nasi Lemak, or rice cooked in coconut milk that comes with sides such as peanuts, spicy prawns and rendang. The judges lavished praise on most of the ingredients but dis missed the non-crispy chicken rendang as a "mistake." One of the judges, John Torode, later stirred more controversy on line by trying to fuel the ages-old war of words between Malaysians and Indonesians over which coun try invented rendang. However the absurdity of the crispy curry saga has provided the neighbor ing countries with a rare point of agreement. The curry, which originates from West Sumatra in Indonesia, is popular in Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei and southern Thailand.

AroundOsceola.com CITIZEN TRIBUNE FoodEEE-2 Wednesday, April 4, 2018 BY KATIE WORKMAN Associated PressA great pasta salad is a beautiful thing. It anchors a picnic, potluck or buffet with aplomb. It's portable, exible, and easily and often veg etarian. One of the rst things I made for my then-boyfriend's (now husband's) parents was a pasta salad, and for whatever reason, it won them over and became a most-re quested dish. Pasta salads are also such a nice way to play around with seasonal vegetables, so you can change things up all year. Spring and summer are peak moments to scoop up the great produce at the farmers' market, grab a box of pasta, and quickly turn all of it into a crowdpleasing and easy side or main dish. I tend to pack in the vegetables, and the results are beautiful and nicely tilted toward the healthy side. In this recipe, the asparagus and sugar snap peas get a bit more tender and keep their bright green color after a quick simmer, and the best part is that you can add them right into the pasta at the end of the cooking time; that saves a step and an extra pot. If you chop the leafy greens, they will blend into the salad more, but sometimes I like to leave them whole and have the whole thing be kind of a cross between a pasta salad and a regular salad. You can make this salad ahead of time, up to one day. Ideally, leave the arugula, spinach and basil out and add them right before serving. Adding the greens at the last min ute keeps them from getting wilted and darkening. Also, hold off on the tomatoes: Tomatoes really should never see the inside of a refrigera tor, and since you'll have to refriger ate this salad to keep it fresh, toss ing in the tomatoes at the very end will keep them from getting slightly mealy. If you have made the salad ahead, let it sit at room temperature for at least 20 minutes to take the chill off before serving, so the avors all come shining through. Also, if you refrigerated the salad, the pasta will have absorbed the dressing a bit; add an extra drizzle of olive oil, and give it a toss to get it nice and glis tening again.SIMPLE VEGETARIAN SPRING PASTA SALAD25 minutes start to nish Serves 8 1 pound dried spiral pasta (or cavatappi, ziti, fusilli or other sal ad-friendly shaped pasta) 2 cups (8 ounces) halved sugar snap peas 2 cups (1-inch pieces) asparagus 2 cups baby or roughly chopped arugula 2 cups baby or roughly chopped spinach 1 bell pepper (red, yellow, or or ange), nely diced 1 pint cherry tomatoes, cut in half, or quarters if larger 1/2 cup sliced scallions 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons mayonnaise 1/4 cup rice vinegar 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 1/2 cup chopped shallots 1/2 cup slivered fresh basil Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste 1/3 cup nely grated Parmesan cheese Heat a large pot of salted water to a boil.

(AP) Rhode Island is launching a program to buy farms and sell them to new farmers for dirt cheap. A farm bought for $500,000, for example, could then be sold for $100,000. It is an unconventional approach to ensure that farming remains viable. The National Farmers Union knows of no other state that buys farmland to sell to farmers at less than market price. Other states give tax credits and loans to beginning farmers. Though some critics say this is not the role of state government, Rhode Island sees it as a way to keep young entrepreneurs from moving to other states, where land may be cheaper. It also could attract other farmers to the state, though retaining farmers who already are here is the main goal and the se lection process favors Rhode Island farmers. "We want these minds, their energy, this entrepre neurial spirit to stay here in Rhode Island," said Ken Ayars, chief of the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management's agriculture division. The state does not know exactly how many people are leaving, but ofcials of ten hear from the agriculture community that the high price of land is forcing some people out, while others are leasing land because they cannot afford to buy it, Ayars said. "When we think about the future of agriculture in Rhode Island, this is a weak link," he said. Sarah Turkus, 30, started the Sidewalk Ends Farm with two other young women in a vacant lot in Providence in 2011. When they wanted to expand three years later, they could not nd available, affordable land in Rhode Island. They now lease 2 acres (0.81 hectares) in Seekonk, Massachusetts, to grow vegetables, herbs and owers. "This program specically, or a program like it, would probably be the only way I'd ever be able to own farmland in our area because of the cost of the land," she said. Under the program, the state will buy a farm at the full appraised value, which takes into account the land's worth if it was developed. The state will then resell the farm at the agricultural ap praised value, which is its worth solely as a farm. That is typically 20 percent of the full value, Ayars said. The condition is that it must re main a farm, which the state broadly denes as anything related to the production of agricultural crops or raising livestock. Rhode Island plans to spend $3 million from the most recent environmental bond approved by voters to buy farmland and development rights. The value of all land and buildings on farms nation wide averaged $3,080 per acre for 2017, according to the United States Department of Agriculture. The farm real estate value in Rhode Island was the highest in the nation at $13,800 per acre. Rhode Island plans to solicit applications for its new program within 45 days. The National Farmers Union, which represents farmers, shers and ranchers with divisions in 33 states, is typi cally wary of anyone other than a family farmer own ing farmland, said Thomas Driscoll, director of conser vation policy. But, Driscoll said, prop erty values may be getting so high along both coasts that unconventional solutions are needed to ensure food pro duction. "We want to see how this operates in practice and how it affects farmers who are farming there already, but ultimately access to land is a major problem for farmers and we're glad that people are thinking creatively about it," he said. Some Republican state lawmakers and established farmers in Rhode Island have said that buying and selling farmland is not the state's role. Glen Cottrell owns Cot trell Homestead, a 118-yearold dairy farm that is going out of business. He fears this is a roundabout way to seize property and divide it. "That's what the communists did," he said. Ayars said the state will only own the land long enough to transfer it from one farmer to another, and a farmer's decision to partici pate is completely voluntary.

Call 407-846-7600Looking For An Attorney... or Dog Groomer? I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) With a decision seemingly imminent about whether to bring home U.S. troops from Syria, President Donald Trump's national security team is advising against a hasty withdrawal even as he makes his pref erence clear: "I want to get out." Trump's director of na tional intelligence, Dan Coats, told reporters Wednesday that the White House would announce a decision about America's military involvement in the war-torn country "relative ly soon." Coats said national security ofcials held an "all-hands-on deck" meet ing Tuesday and "some de cisions were made." Trump said he expects to decide "very quickly" whether to remove U.S. forces, saying their pri mary mission was to defeat the Islamic State group. "We've almost completed that task," he said. Trump's comments to re porters at the White House on Tuesday conicted with views of his military advisers, some of who spoke at a separate event in Wash ington about the need to stay in Iraq and Syria to nish off the militant group that once controlled large swaths of territory in both countries. At a news conference with the leaders of the Baltic nations, Trump was asked whether he still fa vored pulling U.S. troops out of Syria. "As far as Syria is concerned, our primary mis sion in terms of that was getting rid of ISIS," Trump answered, using an acro nym for the Islamic State group. "We've completed that task and we'll be mak ing a decision very quickly, in coordination with others in the area, as to what we will do." The mission is "very costly for our country and it helps other countries a helluva lot more than it helps us," Trump said. "I want to get out. I want to bring our troops back home. I want to start re building our nation," he said. Trump later met with his national security team to discuss Syria. According to ofcials familiar with the preparations for the meeting, that team, including CIA chief Mike Pompeo, who has been nominated to be secretary of state, strongly advised against a hasty withdrawal from Syria. The ofcials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal talks. Also on the meeting agenda was the fate of some $200 million in U.S. stabi lization assistance for Syria that the White House put on hold after Trump said last week that he wanted to leave Syria "very soon." The State Department was to have spent the money on building up the country's infrastructure, including power, water and roads. Trump in recent weeks has asked Saudi Arabia to contribute $4 billion for reconstruction in Syria, ac cording to a U.S. ofcial, as part of the president's effort to get other countries to pay for stabilizing the country so the U.S. isn't on the hook. The United States is awaiting a response from the Saudis, said the ofcial, who wasn't authorized to discuss the conversations publicly and spoke on con dition of anonymity. A senior Syrian Kurdish ofcial said Trump's com ments on wanting to with draw from Syria came at an "inappropriate time" as Islamic State militants reemerge in eastern Syria and amid threats from Turkey. The main IS holdout in Syria is in the eastern prov ince of Deir el-Zour, where momentum by the U.S.backed Syrian Democratic Forces has stalled in recent weeks as many Kurdish members of the group have shifted west to the Afrin area to ght Turkish forc es. Pentagon ofcials have publicly raised the prospect of this giving the IS group the breathing room it needs to regroup. Many have warned that a premature U.S. withdrawal from Syria would cede the country to Iran and Russia, which have supported Syrian President Bashar Assad. Iran's continued presence in Syria is especially troubling to neighboring Israel, a U.S. ally that regards Iran as an existential threat. Some high-ranking Trump administration ofcials urged caution. Gen. Joseph Votel told a conference at the United States Institute of Peace that the United States would have to continue its work against remnants of IS in eastern Syria. Votel is commander of U.S. Central Command, which oversees U.S. military operations across the Middle East, including Syria. Votel said the military campaign has been largely successful but is not over. "The hard part, I think, is in front of us, and that is stabilizing these areas, consolidating our gains, getting people back into their homes, addressing the long-term issues" such as reconstruction. "There is a military role in this, cer tainly in the stabilization phase."

President Don ald Trump expects to decide very quickly whether to remove U.S. troops from war-torn Syria, saying their primary mission was to defeat the Islamic State group and weve almost completed that task. Trump advisers urge against hasty US retreat from Syria Trump says 'strong action' coming on immigrationWASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump pledged "strong action to day" on immigration, a day after he said he wants to use the military to secure the U.S.-Mexico border until his "big, beautiful wall" is erected. In an early-morning tweet Wednesday, Trump said "Our Border Laws are very weak" and said Democrats "stand in our way" of new laws. He added "We will be taking strong action today." Trump did not offer fur ther details and the White House did not immediately respond to requests for com ment. Trump told reporters on Tuesday that he's been dis cussing the idea of using the military at the border with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. "We're going to be doing things militarily. Until we can have a wall and proper security, we're going to be guarding our border with the military," Trump said, call ing the move a "big step." It wasn't immediately clear exactly how the pro posal would work or what kind of troops Trump wanted to deploy, but the White House later said Trump wanted to mobilize the Na tional Guard. Federal law prohibits the use of active-duty service members for law enforce ment inside the U.S., un less specically authorized by Congress. But over the past 12 years, presidents have twice sent National Guard troops to the border to bolster security and as sist with surveillance and other support. The White House counsel's ofce has been working on the idea for several weeks, according to a senior ofcial who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal plans. Trump has been frustrated by slow action on building a wall along the Mexican border. He's previously sug gested using the Pentagon's budget to pay for the wall, arguing it is a national security priority, despite strict rules that prohibit spending that's not authorized by Con gress. At the Pentagon, ofcials struggled throughout the day Tuesday to answer questions about the plan, including ru dimentary details on wheth er it would involve National Guard members. But the administration appeared to be considering a model similar to a 2006 operation in which President George W. Bush deployed National Guard troops to the southern border. Under Operation Jump Start, 6,000 National Guard troops were sent to assist the border patrol with non-law enforcement duties while additional border agents were hired and trained. Over two years, about 29,000 National Guard forces partici pated as forces rotated in and out. The Guard members were used for surveillance, communications, administrative support, intelligence, analysis and the installation of border security infrastruc ture. In addition, President Barack Obama sent about 1,200 National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border in 2010 to beef up efforts against drug smuggling and illegal immigration. Texas also deployed mili tary forces to its 800-mile (1,290-kilometer) border with Mexico. Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, now Trump's energy secretary, sent 1,000 Texas Nation al Guardsmen to the Rio Grande Valley in 2014 in re sponse to a sharp increase in Central American children crossing the border alone. Trump met Tuesday with top administration ofcials, including Mattis, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Attorney Gen eral Jeff Sessions, to discuss the administration's strat egy to address what White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders described as "the growing inux of illegal immigration, drugs and violent gang members from Central America." In addition to mobilizing the National Guard, Trump and senior ofcials "agreed on the need to pressure Con gress to urgently pass leg islation to close legal loopholes exploited by criminal trafcking, narco-terrorist and smuggling organiza tions," Sanders said. Trump has been xated on the issue since he grudgingly signed a spending bill last month that includes far less money for the wall than he'd hoped for. The $1.3 trillion package included $1.6 billion for border wall spending a fraction of the $25 billion Trump made a last-minute push to secure. And much of that money can be used only to repair existing segments, not to build new sections. Trump spent the rst months of his presidency bragging about a dramatic drop in illegal border crossings. Indeed, the 2017 scal year marked a 45-year low for Border Patrol arrests. But the numbers have been slowly ticking up since last April and are now on par with many months of the Obama administration. Statistics show 36,695 arrests of people trying to cross the southwest border in February 2018, up from 23,555 in the same month of the previ ous year. At last week's meeting, Trump "directed a vigor ous administrative strategy to confront this threat and protect America's national security," said Sanders. Tuesday's brieng was a fol low-up to discuss the plans. Trump appeared to claim credit Tuesday for halting a caravan of about 1,100 mi grants, many from Hondu ras, who had been marching along roadsides and train tracks in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca. "I said (to Mexican ofcials), 'I hope you're going to tell that caravan not to get up to the border.' And I think they're doing that because, as of 12 minutes ago, it was all being broken up," he said. But the caravan of largely Central American migrants had never intended to reach the U.S. border, according to organizer Irineo Mujica. It was meant to end at a mi grants' rights symposium in central Mexico later this week. The caravan stopped to camp at a sports eld in Oaxaca over the weekend. Mexican immigration ofcers have been signing them up for temporary transit visas, which would allow them to travel to the U.S. border, possibly to seek asylum, or to seek asylum status in Mexico.

(AP) Bill Cosby's law yers challenged the prosecution's exclusion of a black woman from serving on the jury at his sexual assault retrial, alleging on Wednesday that the deci sion was made on the basis of her race. Prosecutors pushed back, noting two blacks have been already been seated on the panel that will sit in judgment of the 80-year-old comedian. The judge said he didn't believe the prosecution had any "discriminatory intent" but halted the third day of jury selection to consider the defense argument. Cosby's lawyers had ap peared ready to strike at the rst instance of prosecu tors blocking a black juror, producing a legal brief that argued the move violated a 32-year-old Supreme Court ruling that prohib its prosecutions from excluding prospective jurors because of their race. The defense had made the same argument on Tuesday regarding the prosecution's exclusion of several white men, but Judge Steven O'Neill rejected it. The legal maneuvering came as lawyers picked an eighth juror, a white woman who was at rst hesi tant to guarantee she could block out what she's read and seen about the Cos by case and the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct. "I could try. I mean, it's still in my head," she ex plained, before eventually agreeing. The jury so far consists of six whites and two blacks. Four jurors are men and four are women. A dozen people were in vited back for individual questioning Wednesday as the prosecution and defense looked to ll the remaining spots. A third batch of 120 potential ju rors was also called to the courthouse in suburban Philadelphia. Cosby chatted with lawyer Kathleen Bliss in court, saying, "How are you this morning?" She replied, "bright eyed and bushy tailed." He then feigned a glance behind her, as if looking for a tail. Cosby has pleaded not guilty to charges he drugged and molested An drea Constand at his subur ban Philadelphia home in 2004. He says the encoun ter with the former Temple University women's bas ketball administrator was consensual. No major rulings were expected Wednesday af ter the trial judge opened Tuesday's session by issu ing decisions favorable to a defense team that is trying to cast Cosby as the victim of a shakedown scheme in volving false accusations of sexual assault. O'Neill granted the Cos by' team's request to call a woman who says Constand talked about framing a celebrity before she lodged allegations against him in 2005. The judge also ruled that jurors can hear how much Cosby paid Con stand in a 2006 civil settlement. O'Neill's ruling allowing Marguerite Jackson to testify was at odds with his decision to block her from the rst trial, which ended in a hung jury. O'Neill did not explain his change of heart but issued one caveat, saying he could revisit her testimony after Con stand takes the stand. During the rst trial, O'Neill ruled that Jackson's testimony would be hearsay after Constand tes tied she did not know the woman. Since then, pros ecutors have told Cosby's lawyers that Constand had modied her statement to acknowledge she "recalls a Margo." Jackson, a longtime Temple University ofcial, has said that she and Constand worked closely together, had been friends and had shared hotel rooms several times. Jackson says Constand once commented to her about setting up a "high-prole person" and ling a lawsuit. Constand's lawyer has said Jackson is not telling the truth. Jackson's availability as a witness for Cosby could be crucial to a defense plan to attack Constand's cred ibility. O'Neill previously gave a boost to the prosecution, ruling they can call ve additional accusers in a bid to portray Cosby the for mer TV star once revered as "America's Dad" for his family sitcom "The Cosby Show" as a serial preda tor. The AP does not typical ly identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done. As Wednesday's session got underway, a judge gave The Associated Press and other media organizations more access to jury selec tion. Media lawyers had chal lenged an arrangement that forced reporters to watch the group question ing part of the process on a closed-circuit feed from another courtroom. The camera showed the judge, prosecutors and defense lawyers, but not potential jurors who were being questioned as a group. Montgomery County President Judge Thomas DelRicci agreed to move the camera to the back of the courtroom so the media could see the potential jurors. The judge refused to make room in the crowded courtroom for a pool re porter, but said if the jury pool did not ll the room to capacity, he'd allow report ers to attend live.

Cosby defense alleges discrimination in jury selectionYouTube shooter told family members she 'hated' the companySAN BRUNO, Calif. (AP) A woman who be lieved she was being suppressed by YouTube and told her family members she "hated" the company opened re at the company's headquarters in California, wounding three people before killing herself, police said. Investigators do not be lieve Nasim Aghdam spe cically targeted the three victims when she pulled out a handgun and red several rounds in a courtyard at YouTube's headquarters south of San Francisco on Tuesday, police said. But a law enforcement ofcial with knowledge of the investigation told The Associated Press that Agh dam had a longstanding dispute with the company. The ofcial, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not autho rized to discuss the case, said Aghdam used the name "Nasime Sabz" online. A website in that name decried YouTube's policies and said the company was trying to "suppress" content creators. She posted about veganism, animal cruelty along with glamor shots of herself and exercise videos. "Youtube ltered my channels to keep them from getting views!" one of the messages on the site said. "There is no equal growth opportunity on YOUTUBE or any other video sharing site, your channel will grow if they want to!!!!!" People who post on YouTube can receive money from advertisements that accompany their videos, but the company "de-monetizes" some channels for rea sons including inappropri ate material or having fewer than 1,000 subscribers. Aghdam "hated" You Tube and was angry that the company stopped paying her for videos she posted on the platform, her father, Is mail Aghdam, told the Bay Area News Group. On Monday, he called police to report his daughter missing after she didn't answer the phone for two days and warned ofcers that she might go to YouTube, he said. Ofcers in Mountain View about 30 miles (48 kilometers) from YouTube's headquarters found her sleeping in her car in a parking lot around 2 a.m. Tuesday but let her go af ter she refused to answer their questions. Aghdam didn't appear to be a threat to herself or others, police spokeswoman Katie Nelson said. Nelson would not say whether ofcers had been warned that Aghdam might have been headed to YouTube headquarters. Law enforcement rst said the shooting was being investigated as a domestic dispute but did not elaborate. It was not immediately clear why police later said the people shot were not specically targeted. One of the victims a 36-year-old man was in critical condition, a spokes man for San Francisco General Hospital said. A 32-year-old woman was in serious condition and a 27-year-old woman in fair condition, the spokesman said. YouTube employee Di anna Arnspiger said she was on the building's second oor when she heard gunshots, ran to a window and saw the shooter on a patio outside. "It was a woman and she was ring her gun. And I just said, 'Shooter,' and ev erybody started running," Arnspiger said. She and others hid in a conference room for an hour while another employ ee repeatedly called 911 for updates. The world's biggest online video website is owned by Silicon Valley giant Google, but company ofcials said it's a tight-knit community. The headquar ters has more than a thou sand engineers and other employees in several build ings. Originally built in the late 1990s for the clothing retailer Gap, the campus south of San Francisco is known for its sloped green roof of native grasses. Inside, Google several years ago famously outt ted the ofce with a 3-lane red slide for workers to zoom from one story to another. "Today it feels like the entire community of YouTube, all of the employees, were victims of this crime," said Chris Dale, a spokes man for YouTube. YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said in a tweet that the company would "come together to heal as a fam ily." Ofcers and federal agents responding to mul tiple 911 calls swarmed the company's campus sand wiched between two inter states in the San Francisco Bay Area city of San Bruno. Zach Vorhies, 37, a se nior software engineer at YouTube, said he was at his desk working on the second oor of one of the buildings when the re alarm went off. He got on his skateboard and approached a courtyard, where he saw the shooter yelling, "Come get me." He said the public can access the courtyard without any security check during working hours. There was somebody ly ing nearby on his back with a red stain on his stomach that appeared to be from a bullet wound. He said he realized it was an active shooter incident when a police ofcer with an assault rie came through a security door. He jumped on his skateboard and took off. Ofcers discovered one victim with a gunshot wound when they arrived and then found the shooter with what appeared to be a self-inicted gunshot wound several minutes later, San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini said. He said two additional gunshot vic tims were later located at an adjacent business.

Thursday, March 29, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E5 CITIZEN TRIBUNE WorldWednesday, April 4, 2018 EEE-5 China lists $50B of US goods it might hit with 25 pct tariffBEIJING (AP) China on Wednesday issued a $50 billion list of U.S. goods in cluding soybeans and small aircraft for possible tariff hikes in an escalating and potentially damaging tech nology dispute with Wash ington. The country's tax agen cy gave no date for the 25 percent increase to take ef fect and said it will depend on what President Donald Trump does about U.S. plans to raise duties on a similar amount of Chinese goods. Beijing's list of 106 products included the big gest U.S. exports to China, reecting its intense sensitivity to the dispute over American complaints that it pressures foreign compa nies to hand over technol ogy. The clash reects the tension between Trump's promises to narrow a U.S. trade decit with China that stood at $375.2 billion in goods last year and the rul ing Communist Party's de velopment ambitions. Reg ulators use access to China's vast market as leverage to press foreign automakers and other companies to help create or improve industries and technology. President Donald Trump says the U.S. lost a trade war with China "years ago." In a tweet Wednesday af ter China's announcement, Trump said: "We are not in a trade war with China, that war was lost many years ago by the foolish, or in competent, people who rep resented the U.S." A list the U.S. issued Tuesday of products sub ject to tariff hikes included aerospace, telecoms and machinery, striking at hightech industries seen by China's leaders as the key to its economic future. China said it would im mediately challenge the U.S. move in the World Trade Organization. "It must be said, we have been forced into taking this action," a deputy commerce minister, Wang Shouwen, said at a news conference. "Our action is restrained." A deputy nance min ister, Zhu Guangyao, ap pealed to Washington to "work in a constructive manner" and avoid hurting both countries. Zhu warned against ex pecting Beijing to back down. "Pressure from the outside will only urge and encourage the Chinese people to work even harder," said Zhu at the news conference. Companies and econo mists have expressed con cern improved global eco nomic activity might sputter if other governments are prompted to raise their own import barriers. But Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross is brushing off concern over trade war with China. In an interview with CNBC Wednesday morning, Ross said that tariffs imposed by China amount to 0.3 percent of U.S. GDP and that some action on tar iffs has been "coming for a while." "What we're talking about on both sides is a fraction of 1 percent of both economies," he said. The larger concern, Ross said, is the protection of U.S. intellectual property. Still, U.S. stock futures slumped over concerns that the back-and-forth tariff ac tions will stunt trade and growth. Ross said he would not comment on the stock market's reaction, but then said he thinks "it's being out of proportion." China announced tariffs worth $50 billion on a series of U.S. products including soybeans, whiskey and cars. Chinese ofcials said they were obliged to act after the U.S. announced plans for retaliatory tariffs in an esca lating dispute over China's technology program and other trade issues. The dispute "may com pel countries to pick sides," said Weiliang Chang of Mizuho Bank in a report. "U.S. companies at this point would like to see ro bust communication between the US government and the Chinese govern ment and serious negotiation on both sides, hopeful ly to avoid a trade war," said the chairman of the Ameri can Chamber of Commerce in China, William Zarit. "I can only hope that we solve our differences as soon as possible to avoid damage to the U.S. econo my, Chinese economy and to U.S. companies." American companies have long chafed under Chi nese regulations that require them to operate through local partners and share technology with potential competitors in exchange for market access. Business groups say companies feel increasingly unwelcome in China's state-dominated economy and are being squeezed out of promising industries. Chinese policies "coerce American companies into transferring their technol ogy" to Chinese enterprises, said a USTR statement. Foreign companies are increasingly alarmed by initiatives such as Beijing's long-range industry devel opment plan, dubbed "Made in China 2025," which calls for creating global leaders in electric cars, robots and other elds. Companies complain that might block access to those industries. Wang, the commerce of cial, defended "Made in China 2025." He said it was "transparent, open and nondiscriminatory" and foreign companies could partici pate. Wang said the plan, which sets specic targets for domestic brands' share of some markets, should be seen as a guide rather than mandatory. A report released Tuesday by the USTR also cited complaints Beijing uses cyber spying to steal for eign business secrets. It was unclear whether the latest tariff hike was a direct re sponse to that. The Chinese list Wednes day included soybeans, the biggest U.S. export to China, and aircraft up to 45 tons in weight. That ex cludes high-end Boeing Co. jetliners such as the 747 and 777, leaving Beijing highprole targets for possible future conicts. Also on the list were American beef, whisky, passenger vehicles and in dustrial chemicals. Zhu, the deputy nance minister, expressed thanks to American soybean farm ers who he said had lobbied the Trump administration to "safeguard hard-won economic relations between the United States and China." To minimize the cost to China, regulators picked products for which replacements are available, such as soybeans from Australia or Brazil, said Tu Xinquan, director of WTO studies at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing. "China has made meticu lous efforts in deciding the list of the products to make sure the impact on China's economy is controllable," said Tu. "If the U.S. decides to in crease intensity, China will surely follow suit," said Tu. "In the event of all-out trade war, both may lose all sense of reason, but I do hope it will never happen." The Global Times news paper, published by the ruling party and known for its nationalistic tone, suggested further retaliatory action might target service indus tries in which the United States runs a trade surplus. Regulators have wide dis cretion to withhold licenses or take other action to dis rupt logistics and other ser vice businesses. "What China needs to do now is to make the United States pay the same price" so Americans "understand anew the Chinese-U.S. strength relationship," the newspaper said. In a separate dispute, Beijing raised tariffs Mon day on a $3 billion list of U.S. goods including pork, apples and steel pipe in response to increased duties on imports of steel and aluminum that took effect March 23. The United States buys little Chinese steel or alu minum, but analysts said Beijing would feel com pelled to react, partly as a "warning shot" ahead of the technology dispute. In another warning move, Chinese regulators launched an anti-dumping investigation of U.S. sor ghum last month as rhetoric between Beijing and Wash ington heated up. China has accused Trump of damaging the global system of trade regulation by taking action under U.S. law instead of the through the WTO. Previously, Trump approved higher import duties on Chinese-made washing machines and solar mod ules to offset what Wash ington said were improper subsidies. The technology investigation was launched under a little-used Cold War era law, Section 301 of the U.S. Trade Act of 1974. However, as part of its response, the USTR also lodged a WTO case last month challenging Chinese policies it said unfairly limit foreign companies' control over their technology. U.S. authorities say Bei jing denies foreign companies the right to block use of technology by a Chinese entity once a licensing period ends. And they say it imposes contract terms that are less favorable than for local technology.France puts 78,000 security threats on vast police database PARIS (AP) France has agged more than 78,000 people as security threats in a database intended to let European po lice share information on the continent's most dan gerous residents more than all other European countries put together according to an analysis by The Associated Press. A German parliamentar ian, Andrej Hunko, was the rst to raise the alarm about potential misuse of the Schengen Information System database in a question to his country's Interior Ministry about "discreet checks" secret international checks on people considered a threat to national security or pub lic safety. He questioned whether and why different countries seemed to apply very different criteria. "The increase in alerts cannot be explained by the threat of Islamist ter rorism alone. Europol reports a four-digit number of conrmed foreign ght ers, yet the increase of SIS alerts in 2017 is several times that," Hunko said in a statement late last month when he released the Inte rior Ministry response to his query. That response included a spreadsheet detailing for the rst time how many people were agged for checks by each European country last year more than 134,000 in all. "This could mean that families and contacts of these individuals are also being secretly monitored. It is also possible that the measure is being used on a large scale for combatting other criminal activity," Hunko said. The number of French entries by police and in telligence agencies "indicates a misuse" of the system intended to moni tor dangerous criminals, he added. The overall Schengen database which is sepa rate to the Europol database and far more widely used forms the back bone of European security, allowing police, judicial authorities and other law enforcement to immediately check whether a per son is wanted or missing, or a car is stolen, or a re arm is legal, for example. The database was checked 5 billion times in 2017 alone, according to the director of the EU-LISA agency, Krum Garkov. But a relatively un known provision in Euro pean law allows countries to ag people for the "discreet checks" allowing law enforcement in one country to quietly notify counterparts elsewhere of a person's location and activities. Use of the system intended for individu als who pose a threat to national security or public safety has expanded enormously since Islamic State extremists attacked Paris and Brussels in 2015 and 2016, from 69,475 in 2015 to 134,662 last year, according to data from EU-LISA and Germany. If someone is agged for a check, their name will come up for any law en forcement ofcial who has stopped them anywhere in Europe whether trying to cross an external bor der or running a red light. In the entry, the requesting country can ask for a subsequent action, ranging from simply reporting back their location, vehicle, and traveling com panions to detaining them immediately for arrest. The checks, unlike ar rest warrants, expire after a year, although Garkov said countries are notied of pending expirations and can renew them at will. But vast disparities in its use by individual countries raise questions about both the effectiveness of the tools and the criteria countries are using to en ter people into the system. With 78,619 entries by 2017, France makes up 60 percent of the re quests. Britain, with near ly the same population and 16,991 people agged, comes in a distant second. Germany, Europe's most populous country, had 4,285 people agged last year, according to the In terior Ministry data. To put the French num ber in perspective, the country's intelligence chief, Laurent Nunez, said late last year that France had recorded 18,000 people as suspected extrem ists, and considered 4,000 of those to be highly dan gerous. The Interior Ministry did not respond to requests to comment about the criteria for discreet checks. CNIL, the govern ment data protection agency, said the 78,000 entries covered every person that France wanted agged for any reason. Like the U.S. "no y list," people can only learn by inference whether they are agged for a discreet check. "People are not informed about the existence of this alert, which makes sense. But at the same there needs to be a proportional ity assessment," said Niovi Vavoula, a legal scholar at Queen Mary University of London who studies the use of the database. "If certain member states are introducing alerts en masse to the system, this needs to be agged as a problem."Iraq grapples with Iranian influence ahead of May electionsBAGHDAD (AP) Iran's inuence is looming large as Iraqis prepare to head to the polls for parlia mentary elections in May, with many in the country worried that Tehran may be looking to strengthen its political grip on Baghdad through the ballot box. Iranian support and military advisers helped Bagh dad's Shiite-led government beat back the Islamic State group. But with IS militants now largely defeated mili tarily, Iran's expanding inuence has emerged as one of Iraq's most divisive issues ahead of the balloting. That inuence has sown fear among Iraq's disen chanted minority Sunnis, who bore the brunt of the war's destruction, and has also caused concern in Wash ington. Despite tensions between the United States and Iran, both remain key allies of Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi's government. U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis last month ac cused Iran of "mucking around" in Iraq's upcoming elections, telling reporters the U.S. has what he called "worrisome evidence" that Iran is funneling "not an insignicant amount of money" into Iraq to try to sway votes. Baghdad rejected the accusation. Government spokesman Saad al-Hadithi stressed that the use of foreign money in domestic politics "is illegal and unconstitutional." "The government is taking great efforts to hold free and fair elections and prevent the manipulation of elec tion results," he said. Both Iran and Iraq are Shiite-majority counties and share deep economic and cultural ties as well as a 1,500-kilometer (900-mile) border. The two countries fought a devastating war in the 1980s that left hundreds of thousands dead. But Ira nian inuence in Iraq has steadily grown since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion that toppled Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, marking the start of a prolonged period of sec tarian division, extremist violence and political strife. Under Saddam, many of Iraq's Shiite political elite spent years in exile in Iran. Since Saddam's ouster, Iraqi markets have been stocked with Iranian goods and mil lions of Iranian pilgrims descend on Iraq each year to visit holy shrines in the cities of Samarra, Baghdad, Na jaf and Karbala.

Page E6, CITIZEN TRIBUNE HealthEEE-2 Tuesday, April 3, 2018 A chicken in every backyardUrban poultry needs more regulation to protect human and animal health(THE CONVERSATION) Colorado has received a lot of attention recently as one of the rst states to allow recreational marijuana, but its also legalizing other things. Denver, one of the nations hottest urban real estate markets, is surrounded by municipalities that allow backyard chicken ocks. This isnt just happen ing in Colorado. Backyard chickens are cropping up everywhere. Nearly 1 per cent of all U.S. households surveyed by the U.S. De partment of Agriculture reported owning backyard fowl in 2013, and 4 percent more planned to start in the next ve years. Thats over 13 million Americans ocking to the backyard poultry scene. Ownership is spread evenly between rural, urban and suburban households and is similar across racial and ethnic groups. A 2015 review of 150 of the most-populated U.S. cities found that near ly all (93 percent) allowed backyard poultry ocks. Our lab group analyzes health issues that connect humans, animals and the environment. In a recent study with University of California, Davis animal scientist Joy Mench, we examined urban poultry regulations in Colorado the only state that collects and makes public animal shelter surrender data. Our ndings suggest that as backyard chicken farming spreads, states need to develop regulations to better protect animal welfare and human health. When animals roamed the streetsU.S. cities once were powered by animals. Horses provided transport through the early 1900s. Pigs and hens fed on household garbage before municipal trash collection became routine. Thou sands of cattle were driven up Fifth Avenue in New York City daily in the late 19th century, occasionally trampling children and pe destrians. To reduce accidents, dis ease and nuisances, such as piles of smelly manure and dead animals, early public health and planning agencies wrote the rst ordinances banning urban livestock. By the 1920s, farm animals and related facilities such as dairies, piggeries and slaughter houses were barred from most U.S. cities. Exceptions were made during World War I and World War II, when meat was rationed, encouraging city dwellers to raise backyard birds. Locavores and animal loversThe local food move ment has helped drive interest in raising back yard birds. People want to grow their own food. In response, cities across the country are modifying regulations and overturning long-standing bans to legally accommodate backyard chickens. Surveys show that back yard chicken owners are concerned about where their food comes from, how it was produced and possible risks associated with eating industrially produced meat and eggs. They believe their birds have a better quality of life and produce safer and more nutritious eggs and meat than commercially raised versions. Risks to humans and chickens However, raising back yard chickens is not riskfree. As one example, an outbreak of highly infectious H5N1 avian inu enza in Egypt resulted in 183 conrmed cases and 56 deaths between 2014 and 2016. The majority of clinically conrmed cases were linked to close con tact with diseased backyard birds. In the United States, contact with backyard poultry is associated with hundreds of multistate salmonella outbreaks ev ery year. A 2016 USDA survey of backyard poultry owners found that 25 percent of respondents did not wash their hands after handling birds or eggs. In another study, the majority of backyard owners knew little about identifying or preventing poultry diseas es. Commercial poultry fa cilities protect birds against a variety of diseases by in jecting vaccines into grow ing chicks while they are still in the egg. Many backyard growers do not know to request vaccinated birds when they purchase chicks or eggs. In 2002 an out break of exotic Newcastle disease in California origi nated in backyard ocks and spread into commer cial poultry operations. Operators had to euthanize more than 3 million birds. They received compensa tion from USDA for doing so, which cost taxpayers US$161 million. USDA also had to restrict poultry exports, which caused eco nomic losses for commer cial poultry producers. Many animal control and welfare agencies around the country oppose allow ing urban livestock. Some activists argue that it can foster abuse, inhumane conditions and the development of backyard fac tory farms, and increase burdens on thinly stretched animal shelters and rescue groups. Few rules for backyard ocksWe began our study by reviewing every local law in the state of Colorado pertaining to livestock. Then we looked at Colorado animal shelter and res cue data for 2014 and 2015. We wanted to see whether counties with large commercial operations were likely to prohibit raising backyard birds; when most ordinances originated; and what animal care standards were written into local laws. We found that 61 of 78 Colorado municipalities allowed backyard chickens, and only 13 municipalities explicitly banned the practice. Local laws most commonly controlled for coop design and place ment, prohibited owning roosters and limited the to tal number of birds allowed. Unlike commercial guidelines or typical standards for domestic cats and dogs, most ordinances did not re quire vaccination or veterinary care. Very few regulations required humane slaughter or disease reporting. Only four municipalities required owners to provide birds with food; 16 required water, and two mandated vet erinary care as warranted. Many owners understand that water and food are ba sic necessities, but when cities do not codify these requirements, animals have little legal protection and are not ofcially entitled to veterinary care even when they are sick, injured or dy ing. On the positive side, we found that most shelters had not yet experienced an increase in chicken intake, and reported that people were interested in taking in stray chickens. But several organizations were con cerned that they would re ceive more chickens in the future as the number of homes with space for stray birds decreased. Setting higher standardsWe found several cities with model ordinances that safeguarded avian and human health. Fort Col lins, home to Colorado State Universitys College of Veterinary Medicine, requires annual permitting fees that are collected by the nonprot Larimer Humane Society. The agency educates owners about disease prevention and husbandry and connects them with veterinarians and agricultural extension agents. Nonprot animal welfare agencies often depend heavily on donations to run animal shelters and care for strays. Fee systems such as that required in Fort Collins can help them cover costs of managing unwanted and stray animals. And stream lined permitting overseen by animal welfare agencies and veterinarians can pre vent many backyard diseases or catch them early. Based on our survey of Colorado, we believe cities need to carefully consider their backyard chicken reg ulations and develop strong legal frameworks that protect animal and human health and welfare. In par ticular, they should develop rules that require food and water, mandate veterinary care and connect owners with animal welfare agen cies.UK uses data from doctors to find migrantsMedical ethicsLONDON (AP) To track down people in Brit ain who may have broken immigration rules, the government is turning to a new and controversial source of information: doctors. Doctors who work with refugees and asylumseekers have described the move as a major breach of medical ethics, saying it isn't up to physicians to enforce immigration rules. In letters recently made public, politicians sparred with immigration ofcials over a data-sharing agreement quietly signed in 2016 that gives the gov ernment access to personal information collected by the country's family doc tors. Medical details are excluded. A parliamentary health committee condemned the situation as "unacceptable," calling for the agreement to be suspend ed. But Britain's immigra tion department has dis missed those concerns, arguing that such data sharing allows the U.K. to remove people "who might pose a danger to the pub lic." Medical workers back the health committee's viewpoint. "We understand the government has a job to do, but going into health records to get patient in formation is not OK," said Lucy Jones, director of programs at Doctors of the World U.K. "The idea that any patient information is being shared with a gov ernment body immediately breaks their trust in a doc tor-patient relationship." Several leading medical organizations, including the Royal College of Gen eral Practitioners, Public Health England and the General Medical Council, have all slammed the data-sharing deal, saying it could worsen the health of vulnerable people and drive disease outbreaks underground, hurting health care for all. Dalia Omer, a refu gee from Sudan who was granted asylum in the U.K. in February after nearly two years, sought medical help several times while awaiting the government's decision. She said had she known about the data sharing arrangement, she would not have been as forthcoming. "If I knew the doctors could share information with the Home Ofce, I would not tell them every thing," she said, referring to the British department that oversees immigration and security. She said she might even lie about cer tain details to protect her self. Dr. Kitty Worthing, a London-based doctor with the group Docs Not Cops, said "the cornerstone of the doctor-patient relationship is condentiality and this data-sharing is a direct breach of that." She said when she's advised people that their personal infor mation could be shared with immigration ofcials "their reaction is always fear." Elsewhere in Europe, many countries have a strict rewall that stops information gathered by health services from being disclosed to other government agencies. Germany's data protection ofce said regulations prohibit any blanket sharing of such information. In France, no data obtained by doctors is shared with the Interior Ministry. Some health experts said it was critical that some types of health care are available to everyone in the U.K., regardless of their immigration status. "With HIV treatment, it makes much more sense to treat everybody with HIV, because treatment lowers the level of virus in your blood so you can't pass it on," said Kat Smithson of the National AIDS Trust. "If people are not diagnosed because they're not accessing health care, they're not aware they're living with HIV, which means they're far more likely to pass it on to somebody else." The British government, however, says protecting its borders outweighs those concerns. "We believe that the re lease of (patient) informa tion is lawful and propor tionate action in pursuit of the effective enforcement of the U.K.'s immigration policy," wrote Caro line Noakes, the minister of state for immigration, and James O'Shaughnessy, parliamentary undersecretary of state for health, responding to lawmaker's concerns. They cited the case of a Pakistani citizen who overstayed a visitor's visa. After the Pakistani was re fused residency in 2013, contact with the Home Ofce was broken off. Immigration ofcials sent a request to health services, which revealed a new ad dress. "The Home Ofce vis ited the address and ar rested the individual, a convicted sex offender, who is now complying with the Home Ofce and will leave the U.K.," Noakes and O'Shaughnessy wrote, describing patients' non-medical data as being "at the lower end of the privacy spectrum." From last November to January, health ofcials agreed to nearly 1,300 requests for information. Of those, health ofcials found 501 cases where patients had a different address from the one in Home Ofce records. Some Londoners said it was OK for immigration ofcials to get data from doctors under certain conditions. "If the Home Ofce needs the information for a good reason, I guess it's OK, but they should ask the people for permis sion," said Farooq, out side an east London clinic that provides health care largely for migrants. He declined to give his last name because he was wor ried about the immigration status of his father, origi nally from Afghanistan. Farooq said data sharing could make migrants ner vous about getting medical attention. "It could put people in a risky situation if they're worried about their visa and they need to see a doc tor," he said.

Thursday, March 29, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E7 WASHINGTON (AP) The Trump administration says it is amenable to a White House meeting between President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, raising the prospect of the Russian president's rst Washington visit in more than a decade even as re lations between the two powers have eroded. White House press sec retary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the White House was among "a num ber of potential venues" discussed in Trump's telephone call last month with Putin. The Kremlin said earlier Monday that Trump invited Putin during the call. Both sides said they hadn't started preparations for such a visit. If it happens, Putin would be getting the honor of an Oval Ofce tete-atete for the rst time since he met President George W. Bush at the White House in 2005. Alarms rang in diplomatic and for eign policy circles over the prospect that Trump might offer Putin that venue with out confronting him about Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election or allegations that Russia masterminded the March 4 nerve agent attack on a for mer Russian double agent. "It would confer a cer tain normalization of relations and we're certainly not in a normal space," said Alina Polyakova, a foreign policy fellow at the Brook ings Institution. "Nothing about this is normal." Much has happened since Trump and Putin spoke in the March 20 phone call. Trump said af terward he hoped to meet with Putin "in the not too distant future" to discuss the nuclear arms race and other matters. But their call was followed by reports that Trump had been warned in brieng materi als not to congratulate the Russian president on his re-election but did so any way. Since the call, two dozen countries, including the U.S. and many European Union nations, and NATO expelled more than 150 Russian diplomats in solidarity with Britain over the poisoning of Sergei Skri pal, the former spy, and his daughter Yulia. Moscow has denied any involve ment in the nerve attack and retaliated by expelling the same number of diplo mats from each nation. Putin's foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov, told reporters Monday that when the two leaders spoke by phone, "Trump suggested to have the rst meeting in Washington, in the White House," calling it a "quite interesting and positive idea." Ushakov voiced hope that tensions resulting from the diplomatic expul sions wouldn't derail discussions about a summit. Trump has said maintaining a strong personal relationship with Putin is in the U.S. interest and has signaled to allies that he trusts his own instincts in dealing with the Russian president. A White House ofcial, speaking on condition of anonymity to describe private discussions, said Trump raised the possibil ity of a White House meeting in a "casual, open-end ed" fashion during the call. The ofcial reiterated that no extensive preparations had taken place. Talk of a White House summit comes as Trump is preparing to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at an undetermined location. White House welcomes are typically reserved for friends and al lies. Trump has avoided criticizing Putin personally even as his administration has crossed Moscow by providing Ukraine with lethal weapons and up holding Obama-era sanctions against Russia and its shuttering of diplomatic outposts. Michael McFaul, who served as the U.S. ambassador to Russia under President Barack Obama, said the "symbolism of Putin standing in the East Room with the president at a news conference" would be a major goal for the Russian leader. "The only reason you should do it is if you're going to obtain a concrete objective that serves America's national security interest before the meeting," he said. McFaul said he feared that Trump "thinks that a good meeting with Putin is the objective of his foreign policy with Russia. That should never be the objec tive. That should be the means to achieve things that are actually of impor tance to the United States." Trump had already fallen under sharp criti cism from some Repub lican lawmakers for con gratulating Putin on his re-election during the call and for not raising the exspy's poisoning. The fact that Trump also extended a White House invitation during that call was likely to increase concerns that Trump, when in direct contact with Putin, is inclined to offer olive branches and reluctant to raise difcult issues. "I worry that Trump wit tingly or unwittingly may be sending a more positive signal to Putin than he deserves," said Nicholas Burns, a top State Department ofcial during the Bush administration who also served as U.S. ambas sador to NATO. Russia's disclosure of the invitation came the day before the leaders of three Baltic countries Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia were to visit the White House. The three NATO nations are seen as a bulwark against Russia's aspirations of extended in uence west of its border. Trump has met Putin twice as president, at the Group of 20 summit in Germany last summer and briey at the Asia-Pacic economic summit in Vietnam in November. Putin, who was presi dent of Russia once be fore, visited the White House in 2005, when Bush welcomed him in the East Room as "my friend." Putin has been to other parts of the U.S. frequently in recent years, including a visit to the Bush family compound in Maine. Pu tin's meetings with Obama occurred at international summits and along the sidelines of the United Nations gathering in New York. Obama met Russian President Dmitry Medvedev at the White House in 2010, when the pair also chowed down on burgers at a popular hamburger joint outside the capital.

The Trump administration is opening the door to a potential White House meeting between Trump and Putin. It would be the rst time Putin has been at the White House in more than a decade and come at a time of rising tensions between the two global powers. US raises prospect of Trump-Putin meeting at the White HouseTrump administration seeks to close immigration 'loopholes'WASHINGTON (AP) Trump administration of cials said they're crafting a new legislative package aimed at closing immigration "loopholes" after the presi dent called on Republican lawmakers to immediately pass a border bill using the "Nuclear Option if neces sary" to muscle it through. "The big Caravan of People from Honduras, now coming across Mexico and heading to our "Weak Laws" Border, had better be stopped before it gets there. Cash cow NAFTA is in play, as is foreign aid to Honduras and the countries that allow this to happen. Congress MUST ACT NOW!" Trump tweeted at daybreak Tuesday. The president also tweeted about "caravans" on Sunday and Monday. The president has been tweeting about immigration and the border for the last few days, declaring protections for so-called Dreamer immigrants "dead," accusing Democrats of allowing "open borders, drugs and crime" and warning Mexico to halt the passage of "caravans" of immigrants or risk U.S. aban donment of the North Ameri can Free Trade Agreement. Trump has been seeth ing since realizing the major spending bill he signed last month barely funds the "big, beautiful" border wall he has promised supporters. The $1.3 trillion funding pack age included $1.6 billion in border wall spending, but much of that money can be used only to repair existing segments, not to build new sections. Among the new mea sures the administration is pursuing: ending special safeguards that prevent the immediate deportation of children arrested at the bor der and traveling alone. Under current law, unaccompa nied children from countries that don't border the U.S. are turned over to the Depart ment of Health and Human Services and undergo often lengthy deportation proceedings before an immigration judge instead of being de ported. The administration is also pushing Congress to terminate a 1997 court settlement that requires the government to release children from cus tody to parents, adult relatives or other caretakers as their court cases proceed. Ofcials complain that many children never show up at their hearings. The proposals appear the same as those included on an immigration wish list the White House released in Oc tober but failed to gain trac tion during negotiations over the border wall. Such propos als are likely to face opposi tion from moderate Repub licans and Democrats going into the midterm elections. But Trump appears intent on ensuring the issues remain at the forefront of public conversation, even though the spending bill was widely seen as the last major legisla tion likely passed this year. Trump spent much of the weekend at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, having meals with his family, watch ing cable news shows and rubbing elbows with conservative commentators including Fox News host Sean Hannity, according to several club members. Also spotted at the club: champion golfer Dustin Johnson, MyPillow maker Michael J. Lindell, boxing promoter Don King and former New York Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik. Staffers with Trump over the Easter holiday included policy adviser Stephen Mill er, a chief architect of the administration's anti-immigration policies Trump's past calls to for the "nuclear option" changing Senate rules so that a simple majority of 51 votes is needed to advance legisla tion, instead of the current 60 votes have been dismissed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. McConnell says Republicans will welcome the 60-vote margin if they return to the minor ity. The current 51-49 Senate split favors Republicans. "Dreamer" immigrants are due to lose coverage under a program Trump tried to eliminate. Notably, his fa vored solution for extending protections to them mustered only 39 votes in the Senate, meaning it couldn't have passed even if the rules had been changed. Trump's tweets calling on Mexico to halt "caravans" followed a "Fox & Friends" report Sunday that featured the leader of the union representing border patrol agents predicting that those in the caravan would create havoc and chaos in the U.S. as they wait for immigration reform. About 1,100 migrants, many from Honduras, have been marching along road sides and train tracks in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca.

Page E8, LOS ANGELES (AP) A 13-year-old boy was mi raculously rescued Monday after falling into a river of sewage in Los Angeles, get ting swept away and spend ing more than 12 hours in the city's toxic and mazelike underground sewer system. Jesse Hernandez had been playing with other children on wooden planks over an access portal to the sewer system during a family outing Sunday at a Los Angeles park. When a plank broke, Jesse fell about 25 feet (8 meters) and landed in fast-moving sewage, said Brian Humphrey, a spokes man for the Los Angeles Fire Department. The other children immediately notied adults, who called 911, initiating a frantic and exhaustive 12hour search of labyrinthine underground pipes using cameras propped on ota tion devices. Rescuers nally found Jesse after seeing images of handprints on a sewage pipe. A sanitation crew rushed to the area and opened a manhole. "The rst thing they heard was 'Help!'" said Adel Hagekhalil, assistant gener al manager of the sanitation department. The crew lowered down a hose to Jesse, who was about 11 feet (3 meters) deep in the pipe. "He caught onto the hose and was reeled back up," Hagekhalil said. Rescuers gave him im mediate medical attention, including hosing him down to get rid of the sewage and cleaning out his eyes and nose with sterile saline, Humphrey said. Jesse immediately asked for a cellphone to call his family. A worker handed him a phone, and he called his mom. The boy later told KN BC-TV that he was tired and a bit scraped up, but otherwise OK. "I was praying to God to help me and to not die," Jesse said. "It was all quiet. You could just hear the wa ter running through and you couldn't see anything. It was dark." Video released by the city later in the day showed long dark marks on the sides of the dank sewage pipe, which was about 4 feet (1 meter) in diameter, where Jesse's ngers would have slid. After an accident like Jesse's, rescuers say the likelihood of someone be ing found safe diminishes by the hour. Hagekhalil said rescuers were thrilled at the outcome. "They never gave up hope," Hagekhalil said. "They wanted to bring Jesse back to his family." About 2,400 feet (731 meters) of pipe had been inspected when rescuers found Jesse less than a mile from where he disappeared. He was taken to a hospital for a full evaluation and to be reunited with his family. In addition to the massive rescue effort involving more than 100 people, Humphrey credited Jesse for his sur vival. Not only did he sur vive getting swept through sewage moving at 15 mph (24 kph), he managed to nd a pocket of breathable air and hang on until he was found, authorities said. "Any subterranean loca tion, particularly one that involves waste, can produce toxic gases methane, hy drogen sulde so breath able air is a key element," Humphrey said. "The odds of someone falling into such a pipe and surviving are slim. The odds were not in his favor, and many would call it miraculous." He called Jesse "a reso lute young man." "He has tremendous inner strength," Humphrey said. "It's obvious he's not a quitter." Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti was among the many Angelenos closely watching the rescue ef forts for Jesse. In a string of tweets Garcetti praised rescuers and thanked the teen's family for their "pa tience and optimism during this harrowing experience." "We're keeping Jesse's health and recovery in our thoughts today," he said. Famously in October 1987, rescuers freed an 18-month-old girl who had been trapped in a narrow, abandoned well in Mid land, Texas, for more than 58 hours. Jessica McClure's rescue captured the nation's attention in some of the rst round-the-clock television coverage in the U.S. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Spotify is about to nd out whether investors view its music streaming ser vice as a budding superstar or a ash in the pan. The Swedish company will make its stock market debut Tuesday, casting a spotlight on its early lead in music streaming a still-evolving eld trying to hook people on the idea that it's better to subscribe for online access to mil lions of tunes than to buy individual albums and singles. Spotify CEO Daniel Ek sought to manage expecta tions, saying he expects a bumpy road. "I have no doubt that there will be ups and downs as we continue to innovate and establish new capabilities," Ek said in a blog post Monday eve ning. "Nothing ever happens in a straight line the past ten years have cer tainly taught me that." Spotify has struck a chord with 71 million worldwide subscribers so far and is aiming to in crease that number to as many as 96 million sub scribers by the end of the year. By comparison, Apple's nearly 3-year-old music streaming service has 38 million subscribers. A list of other formidable competitors that includes Google and Amazon also offer similar music streaming services, raising the specter of Spotify be ing wiped out by far richer rivals. Spotify's early lead in music streaming has drawn comparisons to Netix, which built upon its pioneering role in DVD-by-mail rentals and then video streaming to create a hugely successful, subscription-driven franchise that has produced spectacular returns for the company's investors. A $10,000 investment in Netix's 2002 ini tial public stock offering would now be worth more than $2.6 million, leaving some investors wondering if Spotify might be on a similar trajectory in music streaming. "The similarities here, we believe, are much greater than the differences," RBC Capital Markets analyst Mark Mahaney wrote in a recent research note assessing the paral lels between Spotify and Netix. Besides blending technology with a subscrip tion model to reshape a popular form of entertain ment, Spotify and Netix have a common executive in their lineage. Spotify's current chief nancial ofcer, Barry McCarthy, held the same job when Netix went public and remained in that position until leaving the video service in 2010. Unlike Netix, Spotify still isn't protable, having lost more than 2.4 billion euros ($3 billion) since it started more than a decade ago. Spotify has also made it clear that it intends to remain focused on adding more subscribers instead of making money for now. Netix has also set itself apart from its rivals in video streaming by spending billions on origi nal programming such as "Stranger Things," and "The Crown." Analysts are worried that will be more difcult for Spotify to do because it is primarily negotiating for the same music streaming rights as Apple, Google and Ama zon companies that can afford to pay even more, if they want. "One of the big ques tions about Spotify is whether they can take it to the next level like Netix has," said Daniel Morgan, senior portfolio manager for Synovus Trust. Spotify Technology SA also is making its Wall Street debut in an unconventional way. It's using a "direct listing" on the New York Stock Exchange that will allow the company's early investors and employees to sell as many shares as they want when ever they want. That's a departure from a tradi tional initial public offer ing in which a company and a few select investors rst sell a limited amount of stock at a starting price determined by investment bankers who spend weeks gauging investor demand. The direct listing could result in wild swings in Spotify's stock pricing during the rst few days of trading, especially since Spotify's shares have sold in a range of $48.93 to $132.50 in privately negotiated transactions during the rst 11 weeks of this year. "Normally, companies don't pursue a direct list ing. While I appreciate that this path makes sense for most, Spotify has nev er been a normal kind of company," CEO Ek said. "Our focus isn't on the initial splash. Instead, we will be working on trying to build, plan, and imagine for the long term."

AroundOsceola.com LA LINEA DE LA CONCEPCION, Spain (AP) Faces hidden by masks and hoods, a group of 40 men emerge from the dark ness of beach-front houses and step into the sand as a state-of-the-art speedboat approaches the shore. They frantically unload dozens of plastic-wrapped burlap bundles, each containing 30 kilograms (66 pounds) of Moroccan hashish. In little over two minutes, most of the cargo has lled two full-size SUVs. All seats but the drivers' have been removed. The lights are off and the windows have been darkened with black spray. Then, somebody yells: "Cut it! Cut it!" As fast as they came, the SUVs speed away and the smugglers nd shelter in the narrow streets of the La Atunara shing neighbor hood. The boat vanishes into the night, still holding half of its cargo. When a patrol car arrives seconds later, all that remains is the sound of the waves. Another night, another chapter in the battle between Spanish authorities and the crime gangs who have turned this neglected town in the shadow of the Rock of Gibraltar into a key European entry point for Moroccan cannabis resin. "Right now, we are losing this battle," said Francisco Mena, leader of Nexos, a federation of local com munity action groups that offer rehab for drug ad dicts. "Trafcking can't be stopped with the human re sources and material means that we have in place at the moment." He insisted the war could still be won. But such opti mism ies in the face of the brazen drug operations wit nessed by Associated Press journalists, and of the very words of drug chieftains who agreed to rare inter views. One of the area's most notorious "narcos" insisted that the illicit trade is here to stay. "Trafcking has always existed, and it always will. If not here, it will move elsewhere along the coast," said the gang leader, who like others spoke on condi tion that they not be named because they feared prosecution. "If drug trafcking didn't end in Colombia with death penalties and extradi tions to the United States, nobody will end it here." Half a dozen trafck ing ring members and their leaders pointed to the 30 percent provincial jobless rate in the Cadiz province, the highest in the country, as a fuel for their criminal activity. They claimed that shipping drugs is a way of life in this forgotten corner, justifying it as a "necessary bad" that feeds hundreds of families directly, and thousands more indirectly. "Many of us are fathers. We need to take food home," said another gang ster who asked to be identi ed as Pepe. "If we couldn't provide for our children this way, another kind of violence would come." Three dozen clans are believed to be working in Campo de Gibraltar, a county of 268,000 that cra dles the Bay of Algeciras. On a clear day, the contours of the coast of Morocco, the world's top producer of hashish, are visible across a busy shipping waterway at the mouth of the Mediter ranean, just 30 kilometers (less than 19 miles) away. A new generation of bolder gangsters is challenging underfunded law enforcement agencies, as local families watch their teenagers lured into a life of easy money. "The national govern ment needs to do more, and not only when the me dia's attention is here," said Mena. "When the state disappears, what appears is impunity." Criminals that in the past dropped their few hundred kilograms of cargo in the sea as soon as they came across a customs surveil lance boat are now ready to defend their bigger, bulkier shipments. The RIBs, or rigid-hulled inatable boats known as "rubbers," are partially to blame. With three, four and even ve 350-horsepower engines, they can ship an average cargo of 1 to 3 tons of hashish in over one hour from northern Moroccan shores. A trafcker told the AP he held the local record: 178 stashes, or 5.3 tons, in a single shipment. Car chases at high-speeds and personal threats to judges, prosecutors and underpaid, short-handed ofcers have now become common. On land and at sea, traf ckers use shuttle vehicles SUVs or rubbers without cargo whose function is to mislead authorities and, in creasingly, ram patrol cars and boats. So far, casualties have been higher on the trafckers' side. Two years ago, four trafckers died when a patrol vessel sailed over their rubber, prompting angry protests against the au thorities. According to police in vestigators and drug trafckers themselves, the uptick in violence is also related to inter-gang bur glaries of drug cargo from beaches or from hundreds of "kindergartens" stor age spaces, often in local homes. These "vuelcos" are often the work of outsiders, the sources said, frequently gangs from Eastern Europe. "The earlier generation had a respect for police uniform but there is now a new generation that has an absolute contempt for au thority," says Juan Franco, the mayor of La Linea, "My worry is that these guys are armed and so far, they are not using them against civil guard or police agents, but that's the next step." Fears that civilians could also be caught in the cross re reached a height last month when a group of drug trafckers stormed the emergency ward in La Linea's public hospital. The as sailants freed Samuel Crespo, a top aide and nephew to Los Castanitas, two broth ers who run the town's most inuential drug clans. Police say there were at least 20 attackers, armed with sticks and knives. Wit nesses have disputed the ofcial account, saying a handful of unarmed youngsters took Crespo away with little resistance from their two custodians. The at tacked policemen said using their guns inside the busy emergency ward would have escalated things. The events hit a nerve in La Linea, a town of 63,000. "How can a handful of young criminals be so bold to act with such impunity in broad daylight?" asks Mena, the activist. "Why were there only two police men guarding a prominent gangster? And why didn't they have any other means to stop the attackers?" Outrage increased when news emerged that the fu gitive was taken in a jet ski across the Strait of Gibral tar for treatment in a private clinic in northern Morocco. A police investigation led to the arrests of two of those involved in the attack, in addition to one person that was detained on the spot at the hospital. Crespo himself is now back in Spain according to his aides' account. He remains at large. A week after the attack, the country's Interior Minister descended on the town with an entourage of body guards and special police forces. Juan Ignacio Zoido's visit was timed to announce a police operation that led to the arrest of 16 people, members of a sophisticated gang that had installed radar to monitor patrol boats. Po lice found it under rooftop solar panels in a waterfront house. They also snatched 4 tons of hashish, 17 vehicles and four rearms. Zoido promised crime squads and additional secu rity measures for the county over coming months. That same morning, a 90-minute drive away, men in hoods entered a guard ed compound and stole a speedboat that had been conscated and held in evi dence, along with a truck to pull it. The Cadiz province, which at its southernmost tip only 14 kilometers (8.6 miles) away from North Af rica, already amounts for 40 percent of the drugs enter ing Spain, according to In terior Ministry gures. Hashish is arriving on these beaches at the pace of seven to 20 loaded rubbers per day, according to calculations by police and trafckers. A Civil Guard operation last year dismantled a network that used dangerous night helicopter journeys to y drugs into hideouts further inland. The county is also a main entry point for cocaine, Eu rope's second most popular drug according to the region's Monitoring Center for Drugs and Drug Ad dictions. It makes its way concealed in containers and merchant ships docking in Algeciras, across the bay from La Linea. Some of the smuggled drugs are consumed south of the Pyrenees, but most of it up to 90 percent, by some police accounts travels on land to France, Italy and the Netherlands, which plays a central role as a regional distribution hub, according to the United Na tions Ofce on Drugs and Crime. As in any other busi ness, shipping a stash of hashish involves plenty of stakeholders. The clans op erating in and beyond the Campo de Gibraltar are usually family-run and ter ritorial, but only a handful of them are in control of all the phases of the trade. Sooner or later, the job will be outsourced to gangs offering pilots, rubbers, stolen Land Cruisers the most common SUV in their operations or the army of people w atching every corner for police presence. Known as "puntos," spotters, they are placed in stra tegic locations, often with a non-smartphone to alert others. These low-ranking gangsters can make from 600 to 1,000 euros ($700 to 1,200) in just one day, according to trafckers. The "bushmen," as those unloading speedboats and loading Land Cruisers are called, can earn up to 2,000 to 3,000 euros a day. But the best paid in the chain are SUV drivers (10,00015,000 euros for one job) and rubber pilots, starting from 30,000 euros and rising with the number of hashish bundles they de liver. The owner of a "kindergarten," which can be a family with a basement rented to the trafckers, can make up to 15,000 euros for each day hiding the stash. The smugglers take umbrage at their reputation as a violent, fractured commu nity. "Police are looking for a war by pitting us against each other," said a prominent drug lord speaking in a modest safe house where the leaders of half a dozen local gangs, some of them on the run from the law, convened to discuss busi ness. "But this is not Me dellin or Sinaloa, and there is no such thing as a Pablo Escobar among us," he said. "There are no assassins here. There are only groups who are good at what they do and others who make mistakes, the same way as police make them." "We, the veterans, are here to stop this from es calating to any kind of violence," he added, elicit ing nods from others in the room. A gang member with a walkie-talkie enters announcing that a rubber has arrived. The group moves quickly to the beach, only a few meters away; in an impressive feat of choreog raphy, more than 100 bush men and spotters unload the craft as reporters and passers-by look on. Only word that a police patrol car is streets way, driving toward the beach, brings an abrupt end to the operation. "You see, this is like a game of cat and mouse, but you won't see the guns, at least not on our side," said a top associate of Los Cas tanitas. "I have never stolen or gotten myself involved in anything else that is not the smuggling. Yes, this is il legal, I'll give you that. But we are not hurting anyone." Despite its struggles with trafcking, Spain is the Eu ropean Union member seiz ing the largest volumes of both cocaine and cannabis. In 2015, cannabis seizures accounted for more than 70 percent the drug apprehended in the block, according to Eurostat gures. Of the 373 tons of drugs seized in Spain last year, according to the Interior Ministry, 145 tons were cannabis resin conscated in the Campo de Gibraltar region, a 45 percent increase from the previous year. Still, much more slips through the cracks. Investi gators said seizures amount to only 4 to 5 percent of the hashish that could be enter ing the country. More resources to inves tigate money laundering would target gang leaders, says Mena. Police unions say that a regional court specialized in drug trafcking would speed up some of the cas es, because drug-trafcking probes require large amounts of judicial red tape for wiretapping and other investigating methods. Other proposed remedies range from harsher sentenc es Spain punishes hash ish-trafcking with up to six years if no other crimes involved, whereas sentences can double that in France and the United Kingdom to regulating consumption and sales of cannabis. Mena welcomes recent steps taken by the Spanish government on a bill to re strict the use of large speed boats. He says the European Union should aid Spain, and pressure Morocco for stronger action on its end. But the biggest challenge is local collusion with the drug networks. Revenues feed the local economy, often laundered through beauty parlors, gyms, cloth ing stores or other small businesses, creating a "nar co-economy" that Franco, the mayor of La Linea, de scribes as "bread for today and hunger for tomorrow." Unemployment in La Linea, at 35 percent in 2016, reaches 80 percent among the youth in its poorest neighborhoods, the mayor's ofce said. In late March, dozens of people in one of the La Lin ea's impoverished neighbor hoods protected a trafcker who was being chased by a national police patrol. Police said agents had to re gunshots into the air to dis pel the crowd, but by then their quarry had vanished, leaving behind a car with half a ton of hashish. Still, there are signs that some residents know that drugs are a dead end for their town. On Feb. 27, two weeks after the hospital incident, more than 2,000 people gathered to protest. "No more drugs, we want jobs," they shouted. But Franco does not believe that his city has truly turned a corner. "Once in a while there is a specic event that creates a catharsis of some kind," he said, "but months on we go back to the same point."

(AP) The Buffalo Bills long-term future in western New York was secured when Terry and Kim Pegula purchased the franchise following the death of Hall of Fame owner Ralph Wilson in 2014. Where the team will play its home games at its current stadium in suburban Orchard Park or at a new downtown Buffalo facility within the next decade is the question. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell touched on the topic at league meetings in Florida on Wednesday by saying the Pegulas are at a very early stage in assessing their options. Goodell then left the details to be announced by the owners when they are ready to share them with the community. On Tuesday, Terry Pegula said, We talk about that heavily internally, but not publicly, when asked if the Bills would consider using the opt-out clause in their lease in two years to explore a new stadium site. The Bills later claried Pegulas comment by saying he was referring to long-term stadium plans and adding that the team had no plans to opt out of the lease, which expires in the summer of 2023. The Bills maintain they are early in their planning process and have not ruled out any option. Theyre also aware that time will become an issue in determining whether the next lease negotiations will focus on a longor short-term agreement. The questions come down to building a new stadium, either downtown or near the Bills existing site; renovating their current home, New Era Field; and how much public money would be spent. One possibility is pairing a new stadium and Buffalos need for a new convention center, which would ease concerns over taxpayer money being spent on a stand-alone sports facility. A new stadium alone would cost approximately $1 billion. Staying at New Era Field, which opened in 1973, also wouldnt come cheap. A stadium site selection study conducted by AECOM Technical Services in 2014 projected it would cost $540 million for the next series of renovations, including structural improvements and rebuilding the stadiums third deck. The study based its estimates on what it cost the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs to extensively renovate their facilities over the previous decade. And that cost is on top of the $130 million in renovations that took place four years ago, and the $18 million the Pegulas are spending on club seat upgrades this year. The next step would involve the Bills hiring a rm to conduct a feasibility study to identify sites, costs and what best suits a franchise based in one of the NFLs smallest markets. The AECOM study was commissioned by New York state not the Bills at an uncertain time during the sale process. Concerned that someone out of town would purchase the Bills and consider relocating them, Gov. Andrew Cuomo had the study conducted to provide prospective owners a list of options of what the region had to offer. The relocation fear ended once the Pegulas, who own the NHLs Sabres and have established a corporate base in Buffalo, emerged as the front-runners. The AECOM study can at least still serve as a guide. Of the three downtown stadium sites identied, one is no longer an option because it has since been developed. The site that drew the most attention is a large two-block parcel of street-level parking lots located in the citys emerging Cobblestone entertainment district. The site is located a block east of the Sabres arena and within two blocks of HarborCenter, a $200 million hotel and hockey entertainment facility built by the Pegulas, and the headquarters of Pegula Sports and Entertainment. One person directly involved in discussions three years ago, after the Pegulas purchased the team, told The Associated Press in January that the Bills were focused on building a downtown stadium, and that the Cobblestone site was regarded as one of the prime target areas. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the talks were private. Its unclear whether those plans have changed. At the time, the state was tentatively committed to funding the necessary infrastructure upgrades, such as expanding roadways and access ramps from nearby Interstate 190. The site is also close to public transportation. Its a ve-minute drive from the Peace Bridge border crossing into southern Ontario, a few blocks from the Amtrak Rail station, and within about 15,000 parking spaces. Developer Carl Paladino, who owns a large number of properties in the area, called the Cobblestone site the most logical place to put it (a stadium), in an interview with the AP in January. Kim Pegula outlined the challenges the Bills faced during an interview with the AP in 2014. You only get to build a stadium once, so we just want to make sure we take our time and do the right thing, she said. We just want to make sure that when the time comes that we have done all our homework and have the best stadium that we can for Buffalo. The Pegulas have since backed off discussing stadium plans by calling them premature, and added theyre satised with the most recent renovations. ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) The NFLs new rule outlawing a player from lowering his head to initially make any sort of hit with his helmet likely will be included in replay reviews for ofcials. That has not been decided yet, but Commissioner Roger Goodell and competition committee chairman Rich McKay made it clear Wednesday that video reviews probably will be part of the process. If were able to have replay conrm one of these fouls and also conrms a player be ejected, Goodell said as the league meetings concluded, I think there is more condence among the coaches it will be called accurately. After noting the unanimous approval of the new rule among coaches, Goodell said on-eld ofcials felt the same way. We think that is appropriate to do and it would be the rst time we use replay for safety or in respect to any kind of foul, Goodell added. Late Tuesday, the owners rewrote the rule on using the helmet, making it a 15-yard penalty for any player to lower his head to initiate any hit with the helmet. McKay called it a signicant change, noting that it was a technique too dangerous for the player doing it and the player being hit. While the offender could be disqualied, owners did not call for an automatic ejection on such a play at least not yet. In college football, when a player is penalized for targeting and a replay review afrms it, he is ejected. Including replay will be discussed and very possibly implemented at the NFLs May meetings in Atlanta, where another full agenda will include discussions of changes to the leagues national anthem policy; the potential sale of the Carolina Panthers; and awarding the 2019 and 2020 drafts to two of the ve nalist cities. Before then, Goodell stressed that the workings of the new helmet use rule will be made clear to the players, and there will be further discussions on the standards to go from disqualifying a player to nes and possibly suspensions. Our intent is to go to each team with tape and all the analysis work done (by the football operations, technology and medical staffs) and be able to present it to them, Goodell said, adding it will be all hands on deck in the educational process. We can take the head out, and we do want to make sure certain techniques are not used in our game. I am condent in the next few months (players) will understand it. Like the coaches, the owners were emphatically behind the change. Weve done so much research and investigation on what creates the real concussive plays in the NFL, Eagles owner Jeff Lurie said, and it became obvious that so many of the plays are through the lowering of the helmet and using the helmet as a weapon. I thought this (rule) was very important. Asked about the Rooney Rule and criticism of the Raiders in how they hired Jon Gruden as coach, Goodell said the league will look at it and see if we can improve it, absolutely. Oakland was found to have not violated the rule that requires minority candidates to be interviewed for head coaching and executive positions. Also: Goodell said any ndings in the investigation of the behavior of Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson will be made public once the probe is concluded. There is no timetable for that. Richardson has been accused of workplace misconduct and in December said he was selling the team. The league hopes a buyer can be found in the next few weeks, vetted and then presented for approval at the May meetings. While there were discussions in Orlando about the NFLs national anthem policy, Goodell said the focus was more on implementing social justice platforms in tandem with the players. Potential changes to that policy could come in May. Owners passed two more rules changes. Most noteworthy, the league eliminated the requirement that a team that scores a winning touchdown at the end of regulation kick the extra point or go for a 2-point conversion. In a January playoff game that Minnesota memorably won on a nal pass play, New Orleans players were required to return to the eld after leaving for a meaningless extra point. The Vikings took a knee. Of course, bettors and fantasy players could have a stake in the PAT, but neither participating team did, particularly now that points scored or points differential is so low in any tiebreaking procedures. The owners also approved closing an overtime loophole that could have been embarrassing had it ever occurred. Now, if the team that gets the ball rst scores a eld goal, then the opponent loses possession by an interception or fumble on its rst series, the down will be permitted to run to its conclusion, including awarding points scored by either team during the down. Previously, the turnover ended the game regardless even though the team getting the takeaway conceivably could itself turn over the ball on that play and see it returned for a score by the opponent.

Call 407-846-7600Looking For An Attorney... or Dog Groomer? I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump demanded Monday that Congress pass new border legislation using the "Nu clear Option if necessary" to muscle it through the Senate a drastic change in rules the Republican leader has previously dis missed. Trump tweeted that the U.S. must build a bor der wall, but argued that "Democrats want No Borders, hence drugs and crime!" He also said that a deal to help "Dreamer" immigrants is "dead because the Democrats didn't care or act." Trump has previously called for the "nuclear op tion" changing Senate rules to end the libus ter. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has dismissed that option in the past, saying Repub licans will welcome the libuster if they return to being the Senate minority. The White House did not immediately answer questions about Trump's tweets. The $1.3 trillion funding package Congress passed last month included $1.6 billion in border wall spending. But much of that money can only be used to repair existing segments, not build new sections. Congress also put restric tions on the types of barriers that can be built. Trump began tweeting over the weekend on im migration from Florida, threatening to pull out of a free trade agreement with Mexico unless it does more to stop people from crossing into the U.S. He claimed they're coming to take advantage of protec tions granted certain immigrants. He said Mexico must "stop the big drug and people ows, or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA. NEED WALL!" The U.S., Canada and Mexico are participating in tense ne gotiations over the North American Free Trade Agreement at Trump's insistence. Trump says NAFTA is bad for the U.S. "Mexico has got to help us at the border," Trump, holding his wife's hand, told reporters before the couple attended Easter services at an Episco pal church near his Palm Beach, Florida home. Former President Barack Obama created the Deferred Action for Child hood Arrivals program to provide temporary protec tion and work permits to hundreds of thousands of immigrants who are living in the U.S. illegally after being brought here as children. Trump ended the program last year, but gave Congress six months to pass legislation enshrin ing it. A deal has so far proved elusive and Trump has blamed Democrats. It was not immediately clear what Trump was referring to when he said people are coming to take advantage of the program. The Department of Homeland Security is not issuing new permits, though exist ing ones can be renewed. The Obama administration allowed signups during a set period of time, and the program is closed to new entrants. Proposed DACA deals crafted by lawmakers and rejected by Trump also were not open to new par ticipants. Trump did not explain what he meant when questioned by reporters as he entered the Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea with the rst lady and his daughter Tiffany. The White House did not im mediately respond to a re quest for clarication. Trump, when addressing reporters briey before entering the church, again blamed Democrats for failing to protect the "Dreamers." "They had a great chance. The Democrats blew it. They had a great, great chance, but we'll have to take a look be cause Mexico has got to help us at the border. They ow right through Mexico. They send them into the United States. It can't hap pen that way anymore." "The Democrats have really let them down," he added during the an nual White House Easter Egg Roll, adding: "It's a shame." Trump promised during the 2016 presidential cam paign to build a Southern border wall to stop illegal immigration and drugs from Mexico, but Congress has frustrated him by not moving as quickly as he wants to provide money for construction. The president also complained on Twitter that border patrol agents can't do their jobs properly because of "ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws" that allow people caught for be ing in the country illegally to be released while they await a hearing before a federal immigration judge. Trump tweeted that the situation is "Getting more dangerous" and "Caravans" are coming. The president's tweets came after Fox News' "Fox & Friends" reported early Sunday on what it said is a group of 1,200 immigrants, mostly from Honduras, headed to the U.S. About 1,100 migrants, many from Honduras, have been marching in a caravan along roadsides and train tracks in the southern Mexico state of Oaxaca. These "Stations of the Cross" migrant caravans have been held in southern Mexico for at least the last ve years. They began as short processions of migrants, some dressed in biblical garb and carrying crosses, as an Easterseason protest against the kidnappings, extortion, beatings and killings suf fered by many Central American migrants as they cross Mexico. Individuals in the cara vans often try to reach the U.S. border, but usu ally not as part of the cara van. The caravans usually don't proceed much farther north than the Gulf coast state of Veracruz. The cur rent march is scheduled to end this month with a conference on migration issues in the central Mexican state of Puebla, east of Mexico City. The Fox headline was "Caravan of illegal im migrants headed to U.S." The president is known to watch the cable TV program in the morning. Brandon Judd, leader of the union representing border patrol agents, predicted on "Fox & Friends" that those in the caravan would create havoc and chaos in the U.S. as they wait for what he described as immigration reform. Judd also said Congress needs to pass tougher laws, an idea Trump appeared to echo, and create more bed space for immigration authorities to house people. Mexico routinely stops and deports undocumented Central Americans, sometimes in numbers that rival those of the United States. Deportations of foreign ers dropped from 176,726 in 2015 to 76,433 in 2017, in part because fewer were believed to have come to Mexico, and more were requesting asylum in Mexico.

(AP) President Don ald Trump on Sunday de clared "NO MORE" to a deal to help "Dreamer" immigrants and threatened to pull out of a free trade agreement with Mexico unless it does more to stop people from crossing into the U.S. He claimed they're coming to take advantage of protections granted cer tain immigrants. "NO MORE DACA DEAL!" Trump tweeted one hour after he began the day by wishing his follow ers a "HAPPY EASTER!" He said Mexico must "stop the big drug and people ows, or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA. NEED WALL!" The U.S., Canada and Mexico are participating in tense negotiations over the North American Free Trade Agreement at Trump's insistence. Trump says NAFTA is bad for the U.S. "Mexico has got to help us at the border," Trump, holding his wife's hand, told reporters before the couple attended Easter services at an Episco pal church near his Palm Beach home. "If they're not going to help us at the border, it's a very sad thing between our two coun tries." "A lot of people are coming in because they want to take advantage of DACA," he added. Former President Barack Obama created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to provide temporary protection and work permits to hundreds of thousands of immigrants who are liv ing in the U.S. illegally after being brought here as children. Trump ended the program last year, but gave Congress six months to pass legislation enshrining it. A deal has so far proved elusive and Trump has blamed Democrats. It was not immediately clear what Trump was re ferring to when he said people are coming to take advantage of the program. The Department of Homeland Security is not issuing new permits, though existing ones can be renewed. The Obama administration allowed signups during a set period of time, and the program is closed to new entrants. Proposed DACA deals crafted by lawmakers and rejected by Trump also were not open to new par ticipants. Trump did not explain what he meant when questioned by reporters as he entered the Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea with the rst lady and his daughter Tiffany.

John Ka sich, a Republican, chided Trump over the tone of the tweets. "A true leader preserves & offers hope, doesn't take hope from innocent chil dren who call America home. Remember, today is Easter Sunday," tweeted Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Trump critic who chal lenged him for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, another Trump foe, urged Congress to take up the ght for Dreamers. "There are plenty of lawmakers on both sides of the aisle who stand ready to work with the ad ministration on legislation to protect DACA kids who call America home," he tweeted. "Let's do it." Sunday's church visit was Trump's rst public appearance with his wife since CBS' "60 Minutes" aired an interview the pre vious Sunday with Stormy Daniels, the adult-lm star who says she had sex with Trump in 2006, early in his marriage and a few months after Mrs. Trump gave birth to their son. The White House says Trump denies the affair. Mrs. Trump spent most of the past week in Palm Beach with her son. The Trumps returned to Washington later Sunday.

Page E12, LOS ANGELES (AP) Anyone who has seen Kristen Bell break down in (happy) hysterics over a sloth knows the actress's afnity for animals, es pecially those of the cute and cuddly variety. So when the people behind the new IMAX original lm "Pandas" asked "The Good Place" star if she would consider narrating the documentary, it was a no-brainer. "I'm not un-secretive about the fact that I'm an animal lover, or an IMAX lover to be totally honest with you," Bell said. "I think they produce some of the best content out there and I take my kids to the science center every time there's a new IMAX movie. I just think the patience with which they produce particularly their animal documentaries is kind of astounding." "Pandas," from David Douglas and Drew Fell man ("Born to be Wild" and "Island of Lemurs: Madagascar"), takes audiences to the Chengdu Research Base For Giant Panda Breeding in China where scientists are work ing toward a goal of re leasing captive-born pandas into the wild, where only about 2000 remaining pandas live. The lm, out Friday, fo cuses in on one, Qian Qian (pronounced Chen Chen), from cub stage to her supervised release in the wild and the humans try ing to make that happen. Hou Rong, the Director of Research at Panda Base since 1994, has raised over 200 baby pandas during her tenure and hopes that one day their work will help pandas thrive outside of captivity. In an inspiring display of cross cultural solidar ity, she travels to New Hampshire to observe how a man named Ben Kilham has for 20 years been suc cessfully raising orphaned black bear cubs for even tual release in the wild. At Kilham's suggestion, Panda Base hires American conservation biologist Jake Owens, who Douglas calls "the Indiana Jones of biologists" to help super vise Qian Qian's transition from city panda to country panda. Bell, who got involved later in the process, didn't get to meet the pandas but hopes that one day she will. But that didn't stop her from peppering the scientists like Owens with questions, like how much do their weigh ("150 pounds"), how much for they feel like they weigh ("about 300 pounds") and what do they smell like ("sweet grass and milk"). An avid watcher of na ture documentaries, Bell said that she and her young daughters Lincoln and Delta particularly love David Attenborough and the "Planet Earth" series. The girls saw an early cut of "Pandas" and "loved it" which makes Bell all the more excited for addi tional kids and families to experience "Pandas" too. "It's inspiring the next crop of biologists and con servationists," she said. She thinks the lm will connect beyond animal die-hards too. "It makes you feel good," Bell said. "It's in spiring, it's beautiful, it's adorable, it's educational and personally I think cur rently the world could use more things that feel good, you know?"

Kristen Bell narrates cuddly IMAX documentary 'Pandas'Its so fluffy!Harper Lee letters offer candid takes on religion, familyNEW YORK (AP) Around the same time "To Kill a Mockingbird" made Harper Lee a best-selling author and Pulitzer Prize winner, she was still ght ing for creative control. "I must say it's increas ingly difcult for maga zine articles to be written any other way than a mag azine editor standing over your shoulder telling you what to write. You know how well that sets with me," the Monroeville, Alabama, native wrote to her New York friend Harold Caueld (affectionately referred to as "Darling Aitch"). The 1961 letter the year after the book was published told of Esquire's turning down a piece she had been asked to write. "I didn't conrm to their Image (or the one they wish to project) of the South. My pastiche had some white people who were segregationists & at the same time loathed & hated the K.K.K. This was an axiomatic impossibility, according to Esquire! I wanted to say that accord ing to those lights, ninetenths of the South is an axiomatic impossibility." Lee's letter is among six donated to Emory Univer sity by a California-based book collector and be ing made public Monday. The typed correspondence dates from the mid-1950s, when she began writing "Go Set a Watchman," the precursor to "Mockingbird" that unexpectedly came out in 2015, through the early '60s and the re lease of "Mockingbird." They touch upon every thing from politics and writing to religion and dat ing. They also describe her caring for her ailing father, Amasa Coleman (A.C) Lee, the lawyer and news paper man who was the basis for one of literature's most famous characters, Atticus Finch. "This correspondence from Harper Lee provides wonderful insight into her life during the critical years when she wrote what would be her only two novels," Joseph Crespino, an Emory professor and author of the upcoming "Atticus Finch: The Biography," said in a statement. "They provide a window into her life and her views during a period of tumultuous change in southern political life." Lee died in 2016 at age 89. As Crespino writes in his book, she both revered and rebelled against her father, whose hallowed image formed by "To Kill a Mockingbird" and Gregory Peck's performance in the 1962 lm adaptation was upended by the por trait of Atticus as a stubborn reactionary in "Go Set a Watchman." Harper Lee had argued with her father about the rising civil rights movement, but remained close to him. In the mid-'50s, she even moved from New York back to Monroeville after A.C. Lee fell ill. "Daddy is sitting beside me at the kitchen table, fully clothed, and eating his four-o'clock meal. He gets around the house with a walking stick," she writes to "Dearest H" in 1956. "While thinking of something to say to you I found myself staring at his handsome old face, and a sud den wave of panic ashed through me, which I think was an echo of the fear and desolation that lled me when he was nearly dead. It has been years since I have lived with him on a day-to-day basis, and these months with him have strengthened my at tachment to him, if such is possible. If he gets along every day like he has this day, it won't be long be fore I'll be back with you." In another letter from 1956, she notes her amazement that she is capable of helping her father. "Sugar, I guess we all somehow rise to occa sions: I've done more things for him that I never remotely thought I'd be called on to do for any body," she writes. "But I suppose there's truth in the adage that you don't mind it if they're yours. I sho' don't: you will discover that your Nelle Harper is a much less squeamish individual. But the one thing I don't think I'll get used to if I live to be 100 is a needle. They fed him through his veins for 10 days after he was stricken, and I gagged every time I saw him hooked up to that thing." Lee avoided the me dia for much of her life, but in private spoke her mind. She is candid and irreverent in her letters as she mocks religion, gets a kick out of Elvis Pres ley and knows well that she stands apart from her home community. In a let ter dated "Sunday," she ex presses frustration that she can't work on her books in Monroeville, and longs to be back in New York, where she has "a chair, a table and a typewriter, and no people." In one of her 1956 letters, she notes the romantic interest of a Presbyterian minister, but adds that she's "just not up to it." "Besides, Presbyterian theology is about the gloomiest Protestant dogma I know of, and I don't trust myself to keep my mouth shut: if I feel moved to express myself thereon, it will get out all over Monroeville that I am a member of the NAACP, which god forbid," she writes. "They already suspect this to be fact any way, because I said some strong words to one of our good Methodist brethren about my views on picture shows, dancing, dining, etc., in short EVERY THING but worshipping in a Methodist church. I also told him it would be a good thing if the Method ists seceded again, which damns me."

Thursday, March 29, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E13 PESCHIERA DEL GARDA, Italy (AP) Robby Pepper can answer ques tions in Italian, English and German. Billed as Italy's rst robot concierge, the humanoid will be deployed all season at a hotel on the popular Lake Garda to help relieve the desk staff of sim ple, repetitive questions. During one of Robby's rst shifts, Mihail Slanina, a guest from Moldova, con gratulated the robot on his skills. "He's like a real person, he's really good," she enthused. "He talks, he shook my hand." Developed by Japan's Softbank Robotics, Robby as he has been christened by the hotel where he's resident has been taught a list of questions such as the locations of the spa, restaurants and opening hours, programmed by the Italian digital services com pany Jampaa. The summer tourist season will provide Robby with a crash course in unanticipated questions, not to mention accents, which will help improve his knowledge, vocabulary and ability to answer. The use of such robots is growing in services sec tors like tourism, where the scale of business can over whelm staff with menial tasks. Most of the automatons serve mainly as novelties humanoid versions of an Alexa or Siri meant to marvel customers. They represent an expansion in automation, but one that's likely to be scaled up only when better articial intelligence is developed. The International Federation of Robotics, based in Frankfurt, Germany, fore casts sales of professional service robots will grow between 20 percent and 25 percent a year through 2020, from about 79,000 last year. That includes such diverse categories as defense robots, cleaning robots, medical robots and logistics systems robots. In 2016, 7,200 public relations robots like Softbank's Pep per, used for mobile guid ance and information, were sold a full 135 percent increase over the previous year. "Beyond the techy novelty to engage customers, the current use of robots for customer services is com pletely impractical, very simply because articial in telligence digital agents are way too stupid to be practical beyond what the time is and what the weather is," said Richard Windsor, a technology analyst based in London. Their current limitations are best illustrated by the fact that the two best articial intelligence systems, Google Assist and the Chinese company DuerOS by the Chinese company Baidu, do not currently make such robots, he said. Windsor predicts that such robots will fall off once their current novelty wears off, only to reappear when the technology has improved, something he sees off in the long-term. "In order to make these things better, you need to gather data, so have you have to be out there," he said. Giorgio Metta, deputy scientic director at the government-funded Italian Technological Institute, said the real utility will come into play when the service robots can pick up and move objects autonomously, delivering small items to rooms, or docu ments from ofce to ofce. Robots also are being used for security in say, shopping malls, to pick up on anoma lies like forgotten bags, or to monitor where customers are congregating. Public acceptance is an important factor. Robots seem to be catching on in mall and customer service settings more readily in the United States and Japan, than in Europe, according to experts. Customers at a grocery store in Scotland got one robot, a Softbank Pepper unit named Fabio, red be cause they were not willing to interact with it. And a security robot patrolling an ofce complex in Washington last year drew unwanted attention when it rolled into a fountain. The Cayu dealership in Brescia is employing an other Softbank Pepper unit as what well may be Italy's rst robotic car dealership. Dubbed Cayuiki, the robot has been programmed to give information on cars, play games, and gather cli ent personal information for call-backs, its gee-whiz presence helping to create interest in passers-by who otherwise might walk right past a parked car. "In our sector I don't see the human factor, empathy, comfort, being replaced by a machine," said Andreas Barchetti, manager of the Cayu dealership, who said the robot's job is to draw people in, handle repetitive information tasks and cre ate an aura of technological advancement. But to sell cars, he said, "of course you need our insiders made of esh and bones." BEIJING (AP) Chi na's defunct Tiangong 1 space station mostly burned up on re-entry into the atmosphere over the central South Pacic on Monday, Chinese space authorities said. The experimental space laboratory re-entered around 8:15 a.m. Beijing time, the China Manned Space Engineering Ofce said. Scientists monitoring the craft's disintegrating orbit had forecast the craft would mostly burn up and would pose only the slightest of risks to people. Analysis from the Beijing Aerospace Control Center showed it had mostly burned up. Brad Tucker, an astro physicist at Australian National University, said that Tiangong 1's re-entry was "mostly successful" and that it would have been better if the space station had not been spinning toward Earth. "It could have been bet ter, obviously, if it wasn't tumbling, but it landed in the Southern Pacic Ocean, and that's kind of where you hope it would land," Tucker said. "It's been tumbling and spinning for a while, which means that when it really starts to come down it's less predictable about what happens to it," Tucker said. He likened it to an airplane landing, saying it's more difcult to pre dict where a plane that is "shaking around and mov ing" will land than one that is smoothly descending. Launched in 2011, Tiangong 1 was China's rst space station, serving as an experimental platform for bigger projects, such as the Tiangong 2 launched in September 2016 and a future permanent Chinese space station. Two crews of Chinese astronauts lived on the sta tion while testing docking procedures and other op erations. Its last crew de parted in 2013 and contact with it was cut in 2016. Since then, it has orbited gradually closer and closer to Earth on its own while being monitored. Earlier forecasts had said that only about 10 percent of the bus-sized, 8.5-ton spacecraft would likely survive re-entry, mainly its heavier components such as its engines. "The biggest takeaway from this is that as we put more things into space, all countries, we have to be aware that we do have to plan for these sorts of issues that are happening," Tucker said. Roger Thompson, senior engineering specialist with the Aerospace Corporation in Virginia, said modeling of Tiangong 1's re-entry by monitors in the U.S. had been highly accurate, leaving him feeling "great" about their predictions. "We believe it was an uncontrolled entry," Thompson said, adding that the corporation's own estimate had been just 15 minutes behind the time announced by China. The lack of control was not unusual given that about 15 percent of satellites re-enter the atmo sphere prior to the end of their useful lives, he said. The corporation, which provides technical support for the space industry, had not been in touch with the Chinese side about the reentry, Thompson said. China's foreign and de fense ministries said the country had relayed infor mation about Tiangong 1's return to Earth to the Unit ed Nations' space agency and others. Debris from satellites, space launches and the In ternational Space Station enters the atmosphere ev ery few months, but only one person is known to have been hit by any of it: American woman Lottie Williams, who was struck but not injured by a fall ing piece of a U.S. Delta II rocket while exercising in an Oklahoma park in 1997. Most famously, America's 77-ton Skylab crashed through the atmosphere in 1979, spreading pieces of wreckage near the southwest Australian city of Perth, which ned the U.S. $400 for littering. Tiangong 1, whose name translates as "Heavenly Palace," had two modules, one for its solar panels and engines, and one for a pair of astronauts to live in and conduct experiments. A third astronaut slept in the Shenzhou spaceships that docked with the station, which also contained facilities for personal hygiene and food prepara tion. China's space program has made rapid progress since it launched its rst crewed mission in 2003 becoming only the third country after Russia and the U.S. to do so in cluding placing a rover on the moon and conducting a spacewalk. A mission to land a rov er on Mars and bring back samples is set to launch in 2020, while China also plans to become the rst country to soft-land a probe on the far side of the moon. The program's military background has at times been a barrier to greater cooperation with those run by other countries, and it was excluded from the 420-ton International Space Station that is now beginning to wind down.
